After two years of constant attacks on Republicans by liberal zealots, including the attempted murder of Republicans at a baseball park in Virginia, Wednesday’s news cycle kicked off with reports that “explosive devices” were sent to CNN’s New York studios as well as the homes of the Clintons and the Obamas.
The reported devices were preceded by a reported “pipe bomb” that was left at a home in New York owned by anti-American activist George Soros.
The purported pipe bomb was left at Soros’ home on Tuesday, according to ABC News:
A pipe bomb loaded with explosive black powder was hand-delivered to the suburban New York City home of billionaire financier George Soros by a would-be attacker, prompting the FBI to launch an investigation into who would want to harm the philanthropist and political activist, a law enforcement source told ABC News on Tuesday.
The FBI photographed the device and then detonated it near Soros’ home in Katonah, New York, and were analyzing fragments to determine why the bomb did not go off, the source said.
The device was not delivered via U.S. Postal Service, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed to ABC News. Law enforcement is now investigating if the device actually came through a private package-delivery service and whether it was hand delivered or came through some delivery system, the source said.
By Wednesday, three more bombs were discovered.
The devices were left at the offices of CNN’s Time Warner Center as well as the homes of Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Again, ABC News:
Explosive devices addressed to the residences of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were intercepted, and the Time Warner Center that is home to CNN in New York City was evacuated after a suspicious package was sent there, officials said Wednesday morning.
Investigators are working to determine whether the two devices addressed to Clinton and Obama are linked to a pipe bomb found earlier this week in the home mailbox of billionaire George Soros, near where the Clintons live in Chappaqua, New York, multiple law enforcement officials told ABC News.
The preliminary belief is that all three devices are of similar pipe-bomb-style construction.
The New York Police Department bomb squad was responding to the suspicious package inside the mail room of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle.
The pipe bomb left at the CNN studio was addressed to former Obama official George Brennan, who is now a TV commentator, but who works for MSNBC, not CNN.
Whoever left all these packages is the same person (or group) because all these packages had a fake return address of the offices of Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
One is tempted to assume that these bombs are all a false flag effort to bring sympathy to the Democrat Party just ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. But the investigation is now underway and we will eventually find out what is going on here.
