North Carolina Police Respond to Suspicious Package, You’ll Never Guess What it Turned out to be.

Wow. That’s crazy!

With the bomb packages that were sent to a bunch of Democrats and anti-Trump supporters last week, folks all across the country have been on high alert, looking for anything out of the ordinary that might end up being some sort of danger or threat to themselves and their families.

A suspicious package was spotted outside of the Duke Energy Center in Charlotte, North Carolina early on Tuesday morning, leading local police to respond and investigate the scene.

Fortunately, it turned out to be something completely harmless.

Officials say the call came in just before 6:15 a.m. from concerned employees in the mail room inside the Duke Energy building, located in the 400 block of South Tryon Street.

The package was described as being a small manila envelope handwritten and addressed from out of state to Duke Energy, according to police. Police and the bomb squad investigated the package, which contained a cassette tape by the band Journey.

Employees in the mail room notified police who cleared the scene shutting down roads. A K-9 unit was also deployed to the scene, police say.

The initial discovery sparked an investigation causing the Duke Energy building to be evacuated and road closures in the area.

The investigation closed roads in the areas surrounding S Tryon Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

While some folks might feel that such a reaction is paranoia in action, it’s better to be safe than sorry, especially if you can’t tell exactly what something is. We live in a world where folks will do crazy things for no real, discernible reason, which means that taking measures like this isn’t paranoid, it’s simply the kind of caution necessary to live in the twenty-first century.

Dr. Fauci Refuses to Rule Out Lockdowns as Omicron Spreads

But have Americans begun to see Fauci as the “boy who cried wolf”?

Published

on

Just in time for the Christmas holiday, Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning that Americans should be ready, willing, and able to lock themselves down once more.

Fauci, who seems to get less popular with Americans by the week, has begun to sound the alarm after the latest “omicron” variant of COVID-19 has begun to mutate and spread out of South Africa.

From a recent appearance on ABC:

Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Should we expect to be seeing more lockdowns again, new lockdowns, more mandates?”

Fauci said, “I don’t know, George, it’s really too early to say. We just really need to, as I said so often, prepare for the worst. It may not be we’ll have to go the route people are saying. We don’t know a lot about this virus. So we want to prepare as best we can, but it may turn out this preparation, although important, may not necessarily push us to the next level.”

And then…

He continued, “People talking about lockdowns, people talking about that, let’s see what the information we’re getting in real time tells us. We’ll make decisions based on the science and the evidence the way we always do. But you want to be prepared to do anything and everything. That’s the reason why we’re paying such close attention to this and why we’re all over it.”

Fauci has earned himself the nickname “Dr. Doom” over the course of the least several years, as his predictions for the pandemic continue to err on the side of abject horror and viral catastrophe.

This latest prediction certainly falls into this category, but many Americans have begun to write Fauci off, citing the “boy who cried wolf” principle.

Vladimir Putin Begins Mass Production of Unstoppable Nuclear Rockets

These missiles are little more than overcompensation, similar to when men with little confidence by a sports car to show off.

Published

on

In a move that reeks of overcompensation in the same way that a loud exhaust on a 4-cylinder car does, Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin is now ramping up production on a bit of nuclear overkill meant to have the rest of the world shaking in their boots.

Putin, after being caught red-handed attempting, (and failing), to influence American politics via some sort of army of cyber-trolls, is now pouring Russian resources into amassing a cadre of “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles.

MASS production of Russia’s terrifying Zircon hypersonic missile has begun, as tensions with the West mount.

The Kremlin boasts that the 6670mph weapon – which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead – is “unstoppable”.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November. A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time. Vladimir Putin has ordered the Zircon missile to be deployed next year by the Russian Navy boasting that it is “truly unparalleled … in the world”. And while this all may sound very frightening, the move is likely just another bit of puffery from Putin. The US and Russia have long had a policy of “mutually assured destruction”, in which the two nations would reciprocate any nuclear strike against them with a full emptying of their entire nuclear arsenal.  Even if Putin managed to get one of these “unstoppable” devices airborne in the direction of the United States, it would be a death sentence for everyone from Moscow to Mongolia.
