Serial Bomber Strikes Again, Targeting Spartacus and More

As the devices continue to pop-up around the nation, the American people aren’t convinced of the official story at all.

Without a doubt, the most pressing story in our nation today is that of a still unknown serial bombers, or bombers, sending rudimentary devices to prominent democrats.

As of late last night, there had been a grand total of 10 explosive devices uncovered and made safe by the authorities.  Today, as the nation’s most talented law enforcement officers continue their manhunt for whomever is behind the attacks, bombs number eleven and twelve have been discovered.

Law enforcement officials have discovered a suspicious package addressed to Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) at a mailing facility in Royal Palm Beach, Fla., and another one addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in a facility in New York City.

The devices mark the 11th and 12th that have been discovered since the beginning of the week.

“As of right now police are working at the post office facility on 52nd street that discovered a suspicious package that closely resembled others that were sent across the country in recent days,” an NYPD spokesperson told The Hill, adding that the emergency service unit and bomb squad are on the scene.

CNN reported that the explosive device found in New York City was addressed to be delivered to Clapper at the CNN offices in Manhattan. Clapper is a contributor for the network.

The only commonality between the targets in this rash of bombings seems to be their disdain for the President.  This has led to a number of concerns over the legitimacy of the attacks, given the absurdly “on the nose” nature of these threats.

Furthermore, Americans aren’t convinced that these devices were functional at all, with some citing the bizarre ISIS parody stickers attached to the devices.  If the weapons were meant to explode, kill, or maim, why would the bomb maker include such an obvious red herring that would surely be destroyed?

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.

The Trump of Indonesia

Does all this sound familiar?

[The following was written by Flag & Cross contributor Steve Sherman.] Across the planet, the political establishment and their mainstream media supporters are being disrupted.  While populist revolts were bubbling beneath the surface for years, the election of Donald J. Trump supercharged and empowered opposition to the ruling elite and set in motion a worldwide reset of our politics.   The next bout in the international struggle against the establishment is playing out tomorrow in Indonesia.  Incumbent President Joko Widodo ran a pseudo Obama campaign of “change and hope” in 2014, riding the then-dominant political strategy to victory in the world’s third largest democracy. Widodo now faces a challenge to his failed regime from Trump-like challenger, Prabowo Subianto.  There’s lots to challenge.   The economy has been stagnant.  Corruption is rife.  And Widodo has morphed into the very thing he ran against in 2014 – a corrupt potentate interested only in enriching his cronies and maintaining his power. Worse, Widodo has introduced into the mix the People’s Republic of China.  Whereas his predecessors resisted the invasion of Chinese capital and personnel, Widodo has facilitated China gaining an historic stronghold in this archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands. While his detractors have yet to produce proof that Widodo has been personally compensated and compromised through infamous Chinese government payoffs, the invasion from the mainland has severely unsettled his political coalition. Further complicating matters for the incumbent is his inability to deal with religious intolerance in this largest Muslim nation.   While Widodo tries to use the specter of Islamic fundamentalism to his advantage, he is undercut by his own missteps and those of his followers.  The world continues to reel over the pernicious jailing in Widodo’s political base province of former Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, an ethnic Chinese and a Christian.  Purnama has been imprisoned only because he is a…
