Pipe bomb intercepted on way to White House too.

CNBC claims CNN got a bomb too and Time Warner Center evacuated in NYC. But the White House did not (per anonymous source).

Soooo will the MFM fixate on this more than they did the white powder sent to the Kushners or whatever Trump family members?

Who'd want to kill Obama,and why? He's no threat to anyone anymore. Soros is a different story.

Anyone heard anything about the guy who was arrested for those ricin letters to the WH and Mattis? Seems like he was just a general whack job. But the MFM seems very excited to declare that whoever is doing this is a white male Republican Trump supporter.

a reminder -

" "The campaign pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Foval Group goes and executes the shit on the ground... Democracy Partners is the tip of the spear on that stuff." ....

“I’m saying we have mentally ill people, that we pay to do shit, make no mistake,” says [Democrat activist Scott] Foval in the video. “Over the last twenty years, I’ve paid off a few homeless guys to do some crazy stuff, and I’ve also taken them for dinner, and I’ve also made sure they had a hotel, and a shower. And I put them in a program. Like I’ve done that. But the reality is, a lot of people especially our union guys. A lot of our union guys…they’ll do whatever you want. They’re rock and roll. When I need to get something done in Arkansas, the first guy I call is the head of the AFL-CIO down there, because he will say, ‘What do you need?’ And I will say, I need a guy who will do this, this and this. And they find that guy. And that guy will be like, Hell yeah, let’s do it.”

"It doesn't matter what the friggin' legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker," Foval also said."

I think that Beto O'Rourke has become the punchline to a bad joke at this point.

Out here we have a Laguna Beach liberal trying to make offshore drilling the central issue of his campaign. All of this to energize the base. The asshole doesn't understand horizontal drilling, which is what keeps the oil bidness alive in California.

As to the bombs I find it very odd that they all show up on the same day all over the country. I would presume ATF and SS are looking at shipping information. It would seem to indicate a sole sender, or worse, coordinated senders. It smells, that's for sure.

Captain Hate

On the slow pace of the OIG:

I believe that is one of the reasons Trump is moving slowly and cautiously. When all is brought public it will be an enormous shock to those who really haven't been paying attention or think Obama and Clinton couldn't possibly have done what they did. It could cause a real crisis of confidence in government and that is going to be tough to rebuild."

Another reason for going slow is that there were WAY too many members of the GOP that were deeply involved in all of this (look how the Bush Family machine hates Trump so much) and he has to make sure that he's got firm control of his own side before he takes any big risks. He's making a big step towards that goal now that McCain, Flake, and Corker are out.

Doubling down on stupid (emphasis mine):

Last December the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the overdose rate increased 21% from 2015 to 2016. This month the CDC reported provisional numbers showing another 10% increase in 2017. All of this is happening despite federal and state efforts, using practice guidelines and prescription surveillance programs, that have led to a drop in high-dose opioid prescribing of 41% from 2010 to 2016, and another 16% in 2017. Those same policies have caused heroin and illicit fentanyl (largely smuggled in from Asia employing drug cartel infrastructure) to become the predominant causes of opioid-related overdose deaths as non-medical users migrated over to those cheaper and more available drugs. Yet the new legislation provides funding to augment and enhance prescription surveillance programs.

That’s because the opioid overdose crisis was never really about doctors treating their patients in pain. It has always primarily been caused by non-medical users accessing drugs through the dangerous black market that results from drug prohibition. The overwhelming majority of those overdose victims have multiple drugs in their system when they overdose. The New York City Department of Health reported in 2016 that three-quarters of all overdose deaths were either heroin or fentanyl, and 97% of those overdose victims have multiple drugs onboard — 46% of the time that drug included cocaine. This hardly fits the profile of a patient receiving medical treatment for pain.

The real "victims" here are the increasing numbers of patients suffering needless, sometimes excruciating, pain. I also wouldn't want to be a doctor forced to ration painkiller prescriptions lest I flag the interest of the feds. What we are seeing is an entirely predictable, law enforcement generated, triage that has nothing to do with patient needs or best practices in medicine.

I'm feeling left out. OTOH the mail hasn't yet arrived.

Supreme Court rulings matter:

Complicating the matter is a recent U.S. Supreme Court case called Janus v. AFSCME. Last June, a majority of justices on the Supreme Court held that it was a violation of the First Amendment’s free speech clause for government to require non-union members to pay fair-share dues. Even if a Governor Evers could solve the fiscal issues of Act 10 repeal noted above, he must abide by Janus.

Aren't there regular deliveries of white powder to the Kalorama Kompound?

JMHanes

From CNN:

The suspicious package sent to Wasserman Schultz's Florida office was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder but had the wrong address, two law enforcement sources said. It was returned to the Democratic congresswoman because that was the return label on the package, the sources said, adding that it was the same return address for the packages sent to Obama and Clinton.
I'm sorry, but that's LOL funny!

sbwaters

Found it!--

Author Edward Luttwak made the distinction between force and power in his fascinating book "The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire: From the First Century CE to the Third":

power is persuading people to cooperate, force is making them obey.

Power is people choosing of their own accord to comply, for reasons they find sound and that serves their self-interest; there is little need for the application of force.

Power is highly leveraged; a relatively small police/military and judiciary is all that's needed.

Force, in contrast, doesn't scale: it's enormously costly in capital and labor to monitor an entire populace and impose control and obedience.

The old saw about "what army will the SC use to enforce its rulings" needs to be updated:

I must say, Drudge's front page has certainly gotten livelier. When I checked in earlier this am, it was depressingly replete with articles touting Dem advantages from Gillum to Beto, with the odds on Dem's taking the House set at 85%, etc. etc. I almost didn't have the heart to click on Senate slipping away, in the middle of a list of other discouraging developments. WTF?

I decided to bite the bullet, and was relieved to find the full headline read: "Senate slipping away as Dems fight to preserve blue wave." I can hardly remember how long ago the Dem Senate bubble burst — trust the AP, always the last to know! I was amused by the photo accompanying the article (here narrowed to JOM column width):


Red Pill photo REd Pill_zpsyllypav8.jpg

Unless I'm mistaken, it appears someone has pasted a couple of red pills at the bottom! Considering how the original was cropped, I wonder if that escaped the AP's attention too.

I'm not impressed with Fox News' list of potential October surprises: 5 things that could rock the midterms.

What does look like an October surprise are these bombings, so far, anyway. I'd like to hear more about the detonation mechanics. CNN says the package at "Time Warner Center was constructed with a pipe and wires," and was described by the NYPD Commissioner as a "live explosive device." Has anyone seen anything about how these bombs were to be triggered? Or have they just been taken off for controlled detonation? If I wrapped a bunch of fire crackers together with a fuse, would that qualify as a live explosive device?

JMHanes

Notwithstanding the amount of time teens spend online, there is at least one positive trend (via Drudge):

Research earlier this summer suggested that young people are deserting Facebook. A survey from the reliable Pew Foundation found that the top website among kids aged between 13 and 17 is YouTube, which was used by 85% of the teens involved in the study. In second place was Instagram (72%) followed by Snapchat (79%). Just 51% of teens are on Facebook, suggesting young people are turning away from a social network which was once a pivotal part of adolescent life.

‘The social media environment among teens is quite different from what it was just three years ago,’ said research associate Monica Anderson, lead author of the report. Today, their habits revolve less around a single platform. How often do you use Facebook? At the same time we’ve seen this shift, teens are more digitally connected than ever – nearly all teens have access to a smartphone, and more than four-in-ten say they are online on a near-constant basis.’

There are too many odd things about these packages, including the fact that they all showed up on the same day even though they were destined for NYC, DC, and Florida.

Let me tell you as someone who used to do shipping, that level of coordination is impossible with postal deliveries. I think they should be looking to see if they were hand delivered.

This is what Cap'n said about the Lottery:

"Really high lottery payouts make people on "conservative" blogs look like a bunch of welfare deadbeats by fantasizing on what they'd do with free money from the state. The lottery is a very pernicious tool of the state that subsidizes and promotes envy."

All true, as is the scam that the proceeds are for "educating the children" because libs and dumb people (I repeat myself) don't even know what "fungible" means.

To me, the overwhelming good thing about the Lottery is that because people who can afford it the least play it the most, the lottery is actually the most regressive tax imaginable.

What's not to like about that?

And BTW, my rent check was in the safe they stole. So sorry."

So then I refreshed my mail and found that AOL mail is down yet again. In the past when that frustrated me, I asked here at JOM for email migration advice.
