There's Just No Way That a Terrorism-by-Mail Scheme Targeting the Political-Media Establishment Could be a False Flag.
I Mean, It Couldn't Happen Again, After The Last False Flag Mail Terror Attack in 2001

Everyone remember the Anthrax mailings?

Real anthrax, by the way. Not fugazi. Killed a couple of people. Envelopes actually caused the dust to scatter when torn open. Like a weapon the maker actually intended to harm people.

Remember what the envelopes and letters declared?


09-11-01

THIS IS NEXT

TAKE PENACILIN [sic] NOW
DEATH TO AMERICA
DEATH TO ISRAEL
ALLAH IS GREAT

09-11-01
YOU CAN NOT STOP US.
WE HAVE THIS ANTHRAX.
YOU DIE NOW.
ARE YOU AFRAID?
DEATH TO AMERICA.
DEATH TO ISRAEL.
ALLAH IS GREAT.

These are officially, according to Robert Mueller's FBI, false flag attacks.

The official FBI claim on this matter is that those letters were sent by an American weapons researcher with the motive of... well, they've rather shifted about on the motive.

Put motive aside. They say an American, not an Islamist, did this.

And they say he wrote "DEATH TO AMERICA, DEATH TO ISREAEL, ALLAH IS GREAT" precisely to throw blame on to Islamists and disguise his own hand.

And they even said he deliberately made spelling mistakes (hm, sounds familiar) and hand-wrote the letterforms in a crude way to suggest he was not a native writer of Roman characters/English.

So the last major terrorist mail attack targeting the media and politicians (remember, Tom Daschle and Pat Leahy received anthrax letters) was, in fact, Officially, a false flag attack.

But now I'm told this is all totally preposterous -- so preposterous we must denounce and anathematize anyone who can remember as far back as September 12-14, 2001.

Or the years of investigation/persecution of innocent government workers which followed.

I'm not saying this is a false flag. I'm saying it's possible. Especially given how... reluctant to actually explode these bombs turned out to be. Given these "bombs'" lack of any method of actual detonation.

And as evidence that this sort of thing is possible, I present to you... the very last time this happened.

Facts. This is what happened in 2001. (Or so the official government story goes.)

You guys believe your Trusted Institutions, don't you?

Well, these are the Official Facts your Trusted Institutions have prepared for you to consume.

You... do trust your Official Government Story, don't you, Not-Binary Ben?

You're not one of those rabid ALEX JONES!!! style conspiracy nuts who doubts what your government tells you, are you?

So acquaint yourself with the facts of the anthrax mailings.

And remember:

Facts don't care about your feelings, Not-Binary Ben.

Or your pathetic virtue-signaling. Or Hall Monitoring. Or Apple-For-Teacher Polishing.

That point makes me lean toward False Flag.

36 It is almost as if the bombs were made to look scary but not actually be a danger to the targets, and were sent to targets who someone who is not on the right would think the right would send bombs to. Just in time for a contentious election when public ire at the right mailing bombs to a bunch of sensible democrats would possibly influence a few voters to vote for sensible democrats who are now as a group victims of a heinous crime.

38 The anthrax mailings were almost certainly NOT the fault of the guy that committed suicide.

Remember they swore up and down it was Hatfill. The FBI slandered him, publicly, repeatedly, and did everything the could to destroy him. Hatfill though apparently doesn't take shit from anyone....

When he proved his innocence (what a concept) the FBI grudgingly picked someone in his office. Their evidence was...weak - but they promised to do to him what they did to Hatfill.

And as soon as that guy offed himself they declared the investigation over - because obviously a man facing the full weight of the government out to get him wouldn't commit suicide...right?

They destroyed one guy's life - Stephen Somethingorother - and then, after years of pushing the Richard Jewel sort of bullshit on this poor guy turned around and identified someone else. I think he committed suicide after, but I'm not sure. Either way, he was dead, and therefore, definitely guilty!

This is the second attempt at this, although people seem to have forgotten the last one. It just petered out about halfway through Mexico for some reason and dropped off the news cycle.

If the Mexican government really wanted to stop this, all they'd have to do is deny the vehicles any passage. They aren't marching the whole way, they march a short distance for reporters, then load onto trucks and drive.

Without those trucks somehow I doubt all those "refugees" would walk the 1600 plus miles. Especially since it would mean they arrived long after the elections.

But I'm sure Soros etc are bribing the hell out of the Mexican government

Really?

Adherents of which party historically go in for serious threats, physical attacks, murder attempts, bombings, terrorism, and shadowy underground conspiracies (e.g., the Weathermen, Earth First, JournoList, Robert Creamer, inter alia)?

Double false flag, first, flunks Occam's Razor, and second, is out of character for Republicans, but totally in character for Democrats. (Consider the way they caucused in advance to smear Kavanaugh.)

But the questions above are apposite: who benefits? And why now?

And why not, e.g., Feinstein, for her despicable conduct in the Kavanaugh matter? That was only a couple weeks ago; why target more obscure people who are no longer relevant (Clinton, Obama) or never were relevant (DeNiro - really)?

140 Purely from crime procedural perspective, I'm looking forward to learning what mistake this feux-bomber made that will lead to his (or their) capture.

Obvious vectors are fingerprints, video footage of drop-offs, pesky family members or associates that drop a dime, geographic process of elimination,fiber or DNA evidence, micro-IDs from printer and follow-on acts once scrutiny intensifies.

Most of these could be theoretically remediated. Wear gloves, wipe everything down (like, with a cloth?), do a solo mission and don't tell anyone about it, send packages from locations far away from your domicile, don't print labels from your computer, don't lick the stamps, and do the entire act in one shot and then burn everything associated with the preparation, then walk away and lead a normal life, never mentioning event again.

But there's always something.... High profile event like this will earn, what, 100 Top Men from the FBI? Including profilers? The collective brain and expertise of law enforcement is quite effective when they put some will behind an investigation (cough. cough. Hillary...)

The previous example was, definitely, a false flag attack because it happened under the regime of Chimpy McHitlerBurton and Darth Cheney. It was all part of their Secret Evil Plane to sew discontent and Islamophobia and give their overlords and Kellogg Brown and Root a war in the middle East so they could make money from government contracts. Total false flag.

This one, however, is NOT a false flag because it happened under the regime of The Orange Satan, and is directed at those he deems not his friends. Therefore, it is totally legit.

First, everyone who received one was obvious. No one was ever in danger. And most, if not all of the recipients would not be likely to open their own mail (and most would obviously have screeners checking all packages). So why would someone opposed to democrats choose this methodology just before midterms? While we should wait for evidence, early voting is going on now and it is likely we won't have time to solve this before the election. No way to recast those votes. So, we can't leave the story alone and hope the media will cover it objectively or wait for answers.

181 Hello Horde.

Yes, this is me in the prayer chain.

I am writing to ask for your help. To be clear, I asked for and received help once already, in early July. I wanted all to know that. Circumstances are such that I find myself needing ask another time.

10/23-Calm Mentor is battling an infection that came from an abscessed tooth and could use all the help he could get. He is going through a very difficult time right now. He has a new GoFundMe page:

https://www.gofundme.com/help-with-time-to-find-employment


The campaign tells the story, but this is my situation:

I am partially handicapped, with limited mobility and only 25% use of my strong right arm. Up until June, I was still able to drive for Uber, and did so for over a year. I was deactivated as a driver at that time.

My only family is a brother who I was helping financially while working. My "friends", I found, consisted of those from a marriage of 17 years which ended three years ago. I have been turned down for welfare benefits because, as reported, I made too much money this year to qualify. I applied for SSDI in July, and am awaiting their first denial, as I'm told this is their standard practice.

While working, I had built up a small reserve of money, one that was used up recently to pay an oral surgeon to treat a badly abscessed tooth.

I have been everywhere in applying for jobs, and in the past 3.5 months have only gotten 3 days of good freelance work, and 5 days of temp work. I will find something, as failure is not an option. In the meantime, I am looking at homelessness next week. This is the reason for my request. Anything you could do would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for listening, and I have put my email in my nic if anyone would like to contact me off of the board. I will post this once only per thread for today and tomorrow. Be well.

187 At this point, it's equally as likely this was a false flag as it was not. Throw the known facts into the mix and it's seemingly more likely to be a false flag.

As to the 2001 anthrax attacks, Mueller seamlessly transitioned from one falsely accused federal employee to a dead one. There remains quite a bit of suspicion the 2001 false flag at a minimum is unsolved, at worst also was the handiwork of Deep State/Democrats/media to make Republicans look bad to cripple Bush in the midterms a year later and/or deflect from the massive intelligence clusterfuck we know as 9/11.

All that aside, I don't really give a single fuck about the apparent targets of this...hoax?...and suspect that opinion is widely shared even if not voiced. CNN's attention whoring and the cucks' White Knighting got real old real fast. That national unity thingy sort of withered when a large swath of the country and its functionaries orchestrated a coup attempt. Bad to feel that way but whatevs. That indifference is at least as disturbing as the crime itself but it was inevitable, perhaps a goal of many crying foul or wolf now.

Posted by: Trump poisoned my cat at October 25, 2018 03:29 PM (rDF5j)

188 they CALLED it that. But this is the definition of a false flag -- counterfeiting the evidence to make an attack seem like it came from another camp (from another "Flag," as in nation).

But I have been impressed by Trump so far (if not his tweets or some of the stuff he says, but seriously, he's never going to stop and I can't be bothered to set my hair on fire every time he says something. And a lot of what he says is true.) I didn't think he would keep his promises, but as far as promise keeping goes, he's at or near the top of the list of US presidents, IMO.

And the left is nuts.

So I plan to vote for him next time around.

Ace, I don't know if you saw it, but Frontline on PBS did a fantastic episode IMHO about Bruce Ivins, the man most suspected by the FBI of sending the original anthrax in 2001. Very suspenseful and mysterious.

It turned out Ivins may have gone to all that trouble just because he was trying hard to impress an old college crush, whom he was apparently obsessed with.

I actually started laughing out loud in public when CNN flashed that this was a mass assassination attempt.
+++++++++++

Do any of you morons know how the White House makes determination of which organizations qualify as "the press" for purposes of admittance to White House press core?

I mean, National Enquirer isn't in the pool. And yet, CNN is, despite the fact it's more analogous to the National Enquirer or the WWF than it is to a real journalism outfit.

Is it just that NYT, WaPo, NBC, ABC, etc., have set the bar so low that one can't distinguish between National Inquirer and journalism anymore? If that's the case, National Enquirer should join the press pool. At least questions about aliens and the hidden city of Atlantis would be actually entertaining instead of the CNN entertainment pretending to be news coverage.

257 >>These packages (they weren't bombs, since they couldn't explode) feel very much like a false flag operation.


Not only have we all seen a lot of terror attacks, in the US and Europe, to fairly recognize how they are carried out, but we've seem a lot of political theater over the past few decades, too. The women fainting at so many the Obama rallies. The Hillary town halls where perfectly crafted questions are asked ("Diamonds or pearls? Ha ha!") by people who turn out to be associated with the campaign. The fake Tea Party goers with vile signs. And on and on.


This is why so many have the gut feeling that the inoperable bombs were a political act, not a terror attack.

Level V body armor is bulky as hell. I can't imagine how hot it must get under that.

Of course being the Gov, they get all the newest stuff and also the stuff that doesn't overheat so much because they're made out of special materials and all.

Still can't hide the bulk. It takes bulk to stop a rifle bullet. Especially .50 cal.

I've never understood why they do it tho. A good sniper will do a head shot. of course in some of his appearances they've got shielding up it's just not as obtrusive as it used to be.

329 30 October might be the anniversary of Vesuvius. the only "specific" date is from Pliny and it can be read a number of ways, given the manuscript tradition.

also they were eating harvested autumn fruits like pomegranate, and storing young wine from the grape harvest. which in Campania is done in October.

recently the archaeologists found a graffito with "17 October" on it.

Remove line feed. There were several copycats later on. But the original case remains unsolved. They did arrest and convict someone for writing an extortion letter to Johnson & Johnson, but there was no evidence he was the actual poisoner.

Oh, it was cyanide. The perp bought Tylenol bottles, put cyanide in them, then put them back on the shelves.

This caused all sorts of anti-tampering measures to be taken on all sorts of similar products.

404 You remember the famous Tylenol poisoning cases? They never caught the perp there either did they?

I thought they did. But i'm not sure.

Was this the case where he poisoned pill bottles so he could kill his wife and just claim she was one of the "random" victims?

-------

No one was ever caught for the first wave of Tylenol poisonings, which took place in Chicago. But one copycat case took place in Washington state, and that involved a woman killing her husband, and other random people, to try to shift the blame from herself.

--

Stella Nichols put cyanide-laced Excedrin capsules on store shelves after she killed her husband. This wound up killing one woman who bought the capsules. Stella's reasoning for doing this after she already killed her husband? She wasn't yet under any investigation for her husband's death (by cyanide), but she wanted some kind of extra life insurance he had that paid on accidental or poisoning or something like that. She planned to have him exhumed to be tested for cyanide after the woman was killed, then claiming he bought OTC cyanide capsules too and cash in. Her plan didn't work.

But I have been impressed by Trump so far (if not his tweets or some of the stuff he says, but seriously, he's never going to stop and I can't be bothered to set my hair on fire every time he says something. And a lot of what he says is true.) I didn't think he would keep his promises, but as far as promise keeping goes, he's at or near the top of the list of US presidents, IMO.

And the left is nuts.

So I plan to vote for him next time around.

I hope I can be forgiven.

I respectfully disagree. A false flag only requires having culpability assigned to the other side. It doesn't matter for what - real bombs exploding, fake bombs meant as intimidation, ...

All you need to do in a false flag operation is pretend you're on the other side and carry out some action that you think will harm them or help your side.

517 I have a theory on the anthrax mailings, and one that dovetails nicely with the usually-dem impulse to mail dodgy things, the unabomber-like apocalyptic thinking, and all the rest - like how they couldn't find anyone with clear motive or who matched the profile they expected.

Something that has very much impressed itself on me in recent years with the self-flagellation of academics and others is that *punishment* for Evil White collective guilt is a thing, and the sense of being reprimanded, punished, and finding glory in despair is by no means confined to the nominal left. Remember our own combative defeatists, and the personality type that, when believing defeat is inevitable, becomes hardened and hostile and rabid? It's the reason that some of the less recognizably cucky NeverTrump types went among the furthest around the bend - this was the apocalypse, and it's all the fault of all you Trumpalos.

False flag? Sure. But not to *blame* Islam. To ensure that the lesson was taught, the chickens recognized as home to roost. Picture a Ward Churchill/Noam Chomski type who believed that the tower attack was justified, but that we didn't fear the world of islam enough to leave it alone.

Now imagine how strongly ruled out such a person would be by someone looking for a rightist, because "THIS SENT TO MAKEY THE ISLAMS LOOK BAD, HURR DURR".

He'd never be caught. Not in a million years, even if he expected to.

considering false-flag as an option given it is favored so strongly by

And you know he's a UPS driver how?

10 minutes is a long time for those guys they are tracked from place to place by their little tablets and a gps in the truck.

Should've recorded that conversation.

I'd be watching the horizon for a few days and nights. See if any black helos circle and strange black suvs appear.

561 I have to weigh in on Abby Shapiro's boobs. Not having seen them up close and personal, I can't be sure. But I have to think those bombs are REAL.
If she was flat-chested and got a boob job, she wouldn't have gotten them in THAT size--unless she was a stripper or a porn star.

568 517 I have a theory on the anthrax mailings, and one that dovetails nicely with the usually-dem impulse to mail dodgy things, the unabomber-like apocalyptic thinking, and all the rest - like how they couldn't find anyone with clear motive or who matched the profile they expected.

Something that has very much impressed itself on me in recent years with the self-flagellation of academics and others is that *punishment* for Evil White collective guilt is a thing, and the sense of being reprimanded, punished, and finding glory in despair is by no means confined to the nominal left. Remember our own combative defeatists, and the personality type that, when believing defeat is inevitable, becomes hardened and hostile and rabid? It's the reason that some of the less recognizably cucky NeverTrump types went among the furthest around the bend - this was the apocalypse, and it's all the fault of all you Trumpalos.

False flag? Sure. But not to *blame* Islam. To ensure that the lesson was taught, the chickens recognized as home to roost. Picture a Ward Churchill/Noam Chomski type who believed that the tower attack was justified, but that we didn't fear the world of islam enough to leave it alone.

Now imagine how strongly ruled out such a person would be by someone looking for a rightist, because "THIS SENT TO MAKEY THE ISLAMS LOOK BAD, HURR DURR".

He'd never be caught. Not in a million years, even if he expected to.

Only one problem with your conjecture,

Where did the real killer Anthrax come from?

Someone very technically adept at something 99.999% of people have no clue about developed an Anthrax Weapon that was very fucking effective!

According to experts it was better at dispersing the spores than anything we or the Russians ever develped. Better Than!!!

572 I cannot remember the anthrax mail episode. That was like, almost twenty years ago.

Ford and I were living together then, fucking around, surfing, deciding maybe to get married.

But that episode from when I was fifteen, that one is burned into my head. I kept it secret from Ford.

A false flag explains what's going on a lot more simply and neatly than an actual bungled bombing attempt. You'd have to be teh stoopid, or have an agenda, not to seriously consider it.

I take it you're working on the mississippi?

Where at?

I used to work a local towboat out of Baton Rouge (Plaquemine). Cutting out the barges for dropoff to the industries while the river tow moved up or down the river.

Lot's of fun scrambling around on the barge decks with lines and cables and tighteners scattered all over. then let it go and get back on the local boat before it pulled away. At night too!

Or New York Harbor when they had the cook strike.

580 re: the Anthrax - I recall that they identified a genetic marker that indicated that it definitely came from the stockpiles of the US weapons lab.

and since we're really not supposed to be making biological and chemical weapons, of course the US Govm't isn't going to admit that they had gone ahead and made one that was really, really good. The possible motive would be someone in the lab who knew about it, was pissed off about it for some reason, and took that as an opportunity to make the world notice.

583 Less obvious things leaning to false flag (other than kittenish lack of detonators/lethality:

1. Misspellings. Fits into the leftist world view that Trumpists are stoopid. So why not take the opportunity to reinforce that.
2. Better to create a "wave of Trump hate" by a bunch of fake bombs being intercepted, as opposed to a bunch of duds being opened as duds. So mailed to Soros first: who probably has one of the most sophisticated mail screening operations in the world. Everyone else had obvious SS protection or, in the case of Time Warner, by the time the others arrive the "look" of the suspicious package will have been out to the media from the Soros fake-bomb and all others will get intercepted as a matter of course.

My money's on Brennan or someone who Brennan gave a "buffered" go ahead. He is a True Believer, knows all the right spooks, has a Cassandra complex and Trump Derangement to eleventy and was probably the originator of "Crossfire-Hurricane."

584 #580, I recall the exact opposite from a biologist friend of mine in the sci fi fan community. Stuff was not "American" weaponized, but protein coated in a Soviet era style we were never able to duplicate.

See, we have been out of the offensive bio war business since the 1970s, which is why Fort Dietrich now houses the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Disease. But developing vaccines for other people's bio weapons or Nature's nasties is quite legal and we do.
