    That was the first thought that came to my mind, However, The terror from the left is coming from the Deep State. They are running scared because they know Trump is draining their swamp and they will be going to GitMo for life or to be executed. So I believe if the left was thinking about doing something like this, they would have sent the bombs to Trump, not the democrats that the bombs were mailed to. These Democrats are going up on charges of Treason.

    The Deep State wants all this Trump swamp draining gone. They know they are doomed and nothing will change that except the death of Trump and the Dems taking back the power to rule.

    So my mind tells me that some Republican that knows some of the things that these named Dems have done, yet still walking around free is just too much for them. He/She probably isn't smart enough to make a bomb that would work.

    But then, I saw one of the packages that had a pipe bomb in it and it looked like you could tell that there was a pipe in the envelope. So my question is, didn't those packages look suspicious to the mail person delivering them? Couldn't they feel the weight of them and the pipe inside? What kind of mail people do we have?

    It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they were mailed by Debbie Wasserman! She had Rich Zeth murdered.

    It's possible that who ever done it only want to scare the Dems even more than they are, but not kill them. I sure don't want them to be blown up. I want to see them get arrested by the Military and sent to prison for life or executed.

    Trump is not going to be impeached and will go on to win the 2020 election, because he has too many things to accomplish between now and then.

    Trump has incited and condoned violence continually at his "rallies".

    Why should any of these acts of right wing domestic terrorism surprise anyone. Thank God none of these terrorist attacks resulted in the deaths of innocent Americans. We've seen this dangerous rhetoric that Trump spews have the same dangerous effects in the past. Before republican hero Bill O'Reilly was thrown off the airwaves for sexually abusing his co-workers, he'd been going on a constant rant on his Fox News show about a doctor named Jeff Tiller. Tiller worked at a clinic that performed abortions. Shortly after O'Reilly's constant verbal assault on Tiller, a right wing follower murdered Tiller while he attended church with his family. Now we have Trump verbally attacking these very people who were sent bombs.

    Are any of you seeing a pattern here?

    I see a pattern here! Waters preaching "Get in their faces when you see one at a gas station, resturant, and where ever you see them and make them leave". Sorass buying brand new clothes and food for the people in the caravan coming to America because the Democrats have invited them into our country and paving the way which is illegal. The Democrats have destroyed the lives of Thousands because they will be sent back home where they have no home. Are the Democrats going to buy them brand new clothes to go home in? Hell, No! The Democrats only want their vote, but it isn't going to work.

    We are going to see these evil democrats and some evil Republicans go to prison for what they are doing.

    The news media is only reporting the things that they can twist around to make Trump look bad and not anything good that Trump is doing.

    Trump is doing a lot of good things that he can't even brag about yet. When it's over, you will all be shocked at all the things Trump did with all this hatefulness against him.

    But then, the democrats are bind to the Truth. They only know what some deep state democrat puts out there for them to drag in the mud. It is coming back on the dems. The democrats will be a thing of the pass when the smoke clears.

    The democrats are just a bunch of hateful, racist things trying to make Trump out to be one of them with their lies.

    If the Democrats acted like civil American people, Trump would have no need to correct them and put them in their place. They are just plain evil because they don't understand what is going on in America.

    Not this time. Sui obeys most laws even thou they don't apply. However, I Could tell you some things about some of your favorite politicians that would make you want to kill them, but I leave that up to Trump and Sessions. Their day is coming in Dec. and Jan.. Seems Trump is waiting until after the Midterms to arrest the big ones. I say Trump, but it is actually God doing it using Trump, the same man that you are spewing your hatred towards.

    Trump has used his power to arrest thousands of people in the United States and around the world who were involved in human trafficking. You don't hear about these things because you watch the fake news media who are not going to report on it and make Trump look good to all the American Voters.

    It's like Ron White said, "You just can't Fix Stupid".

    You will live to regret what you say, because God is protecting Trump, his family and those around him from the democrat assassins. This means you are speaking out against God also when you speak against what Trump says and does.

    I said it before. Living in the United States is everyone playing a life long game. Some know how to play the game, but most people don't even know a game is being played. You might as well not know you're playing the game, if you don't know the rules of the game.

    Look at Nikki Haley! I liked and respected her, but Trump gave her the choice of resigning or getting fired and go before a criminal trial. Trump isn't playing favors as he drains the swamp.

    Keep you eyes on the game!

    Cesar Sayoc of Florida was arrested in connection with the bombs. He had pro Trump and anti Democrat stickers pasted over his van, which was confiscated. He targeted those Democrats that Trump insulted in public. Words matter here Carl.

    Think about it!

    Everyone is listening to Trump - the Republicans AND the Democrats.

    It's just a shame the people don't know how to process the information.

    Trump only slams the people who speak hateful against Trump or our country, flag or National Anthem.

    You brain dead idiots don't seem to understand that TRUMP is Draining the Swamp and he is "WARNING" the People he is coming after, in his speeches at Rallies and twitter. He is trying to tell the people that if they don't clean it up, they may cross the line and be arrested for Treason, Corruption or worse.

    Trumps idea of draining the swamp INCLUDES going down in the States to local levels of corruption against Governors, Mayors, law enforcement agents, News Medias and/or the reporters, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, Youtube, and Corporation executives, Foreign corporations like the Federal Reserve, the Central Banks, Local Bank executives Mortgage companies, Loan companies and anyone corrupt and/or abusing Humans or their rights.

    So, I personally think Trump is getting his message across, however the brain dead idiots just think it is hateful rhetoric. What a shame. No common sense at all.

    We just have to wait and see if Sui is telling everyone the truth or just BS.

    I mean, where would I, someone, you all think is crazy, come up with all this inside information?

    Ya'll have a great day now, Ya hear!

    Right-wing kool-aid straight from the office of the POTUS.

    Google Saudi Arabia Oil Wells drying up. It was Prophesied U.S. and Israel will be the biggest oil & Energy suppliers in the World. Trump admits we are the biggest supplier of Oil and Energy in the world.

    Here is some more Kool-aid for you straight from the office of the POTUS! All the arrests I have been telling everyone about will be announced after the Mid-term Election. George Soros will be the next one that Trump brings down.

    God is disbanding the Caravans in Mexico. They are tired, hungry, feet burning and just want to go home.

    However, there will be a lot more violence of all kinds coming from the deep state in a last ditch effort to get rid of Trump and republican voters between today and Nov 6th.

    Drink up, yumm!

    My main source will be shut down until after the election because of a law enacted in the 1930s.

    My source tells me this is not the time to reveal Hillary's sex scandal. Watch what happens AFTER the Mid-term Election is over. You will all be able to see it for yourself. They will have to refill the kool-aid jar for sure.

    Here is a free pick-me-up on the 14th Amendment: "Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, [and subject to the jurisdiction thereof], are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

    Did you read that? Illegal alien "are NOT subject to the jurisdiction of the United States" until they become U.S. citizens, therefore they can not become U.S. citizens at birth! A Baby or minor child can not become naturalized until it/they reaches the age of 18 or 21 years of age.A baby or minor child could not be legally bound by a contract making their naturalization illegal by fraud. Their parent(s) must be naturalized as a U.S. Citizen.


    Section 3.

    No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or Elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State Legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States,

    "shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

    But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

    That line in Section 3 would eliminate any official who has ever engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same (Trump or the Government) or has given aid OR comfort to the enemies, from ever running for any office again.

    The Gov and Mayors have rebelled against Trump and aided the enemy with Sanctuary Cities. Even Federal judges have rebelled against Trumps Bans on immigration and Border crossing. These people will be forced to resign or be tried.

    They have been finding Gold in California for several years now. The government has even put land off limits to people to protect the gold. The price of GOLD is going to drop to a record low. If you have money in the Gold market, GET OUT NOW. You will only have 2 - 4 years to sell out, maybe one year at tops. But then what do I know? I get it all from the kool-aid!

  • In a day when almost nothing seems to be too ridiculous to say, the idea that the pipe bomber was somehow planted among the ranks of the far right years ago as a "sleeper agent" to discredit Trump is certainly one of the most outrageous.

    Now, Trump did not make the guy crazy, any more than any of the other crazed fans are made crazy by celebrities. However, during this volatile time, Trump's reality show "leadership" is not going to defuse things.

    Of course, our biggest problem today is a dearth of real leaders. The Democrats have no one. Out of the Republicans, Romney would probably make a decent President. But, almost anyone on the planet would be better than Trump.

    The problem with Trump is that he is a reality show host, and that is all he is. His Presidency consists of playing to his fan base. If you think there is more to this Presidency than a reality show, watch one of those goofy rallies, and tell me how it differs from an episode of the Jerry Springer show. Reality TV is not a good way to run a country. It thrives on conflict and negativism. Trump is pretty much blind or indifferent to the effect of his brand of "leadership." As long as his fans are happy, all is well. And that is the difference between his schtick and real leadership. Playing to people's worst instincts, and inciting passion (essentially inciting a mob mentality) is not leadership.

    I will give Trump credit for this. He has a real feel for his audience, and plays them well. Unfortunately, we are not well served by an administration which is all campaign stunts and no substance. Look at this past week as a prime example. The bomber episode; Trump blames the people receiving the bombs, after first suggesting they were doing it themselves. The shootings, Trump blames the usual suspects, grudgingly makes the obligatory display, before returning to the campaign. With the campaign getting distracted from his favorite "issues" he suddenly announces another tax cut... which is unlikely to happen. The first tax cut, unfortunately has followed the laws of math (which we are supposed to ignore, just like science) and has been blowing up the deficit (don't worry, we can pay for the tax cut for the wealthy by cutting medicare and social security). And now we are rushing troops to the border to meet the "caravan". Unfortunately, the caravan won't arrive (if it arrives at all) until weeks after the election. (as an aside, this is not the first "caravan". They typically break up in Mexico and only a portion of them drift across the border). Now he announces that he can change the constitution by fiat.... Do you really want to see that, when it would mean the 2nd amendment could be changed the same way by a future President?

    It is unfortunate for the USA to have someone as inadequate as Trump in office, and a sad commentary on the Republican Party that no one has the integrity to stand up to him (since the loss of John McCain). But, i suppose they know they would get voted off the show.

    -- Posted by lazarus on Wed, Oct 31, 2018, at 7:23 AM
  • Trump isn't changing the 14th. It says people born in the US, AND SUBJECT TO ITS JURISDICTION, are citizens.

    Children born to illegals don't meet this definition, and the author of the 14th said that very thing.

    Children receive the citizenship of their parents by default under Jus Sanguinis, unless other action is taken. Trump is saying no other action will be taken.

  • Quite Mike; and the second amendments says: "A well regulated militia being necessary.." We don't want to set the precedent of re-writing the constitution by presidential fiat. It is not that I disagree that the birthright citizenship needs to end. It should have been ended long ago. But, we have a process to accomplish that. What have all our Republicans been doing for the past two years?

    -- Posted by lazarus on Wed, Oct 31, 2018, at 1:29 PM

    The Truth about the 14th Amendment

    Section 1 of the 14th amendment goes further than just legal and illegal aliens.

    The second sentence is written in (3) parts. Let's look at them:

    "No State shall make or enforce "any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities" of citizens of the United States;"

    In the first part - we see that these United States citizens were only given "privileges and immunities" by the 14th amendment. of course we know that the government gave these citizens the "privileges and immunities". These are listed in the Civil Rights Act and do not list any "Unalienable Rights"! The U.S. Government can't give out Unalienable Rights, only "Privileges and immnunities". These were issued to the newly freed Black slaves and citizens of the U.S. Territories and Washington, DC.

    The Second Part of the 2nd sentence:

    nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;

    In the second part - Here the Amendment recognizes the Rights to Life, Liberty and Property. These are not privileges and immunities listed in the Civil Rights Act. These are Unalienable Rights the people were endowed with by their creator. No State has any authority over these Rights.

    Part (2) goes on to say "without due process of Law". This means Common Law, the Supreme Law of the Land!

    So the second part was added to protect the Sovereign people who had Unalienable Rights!

    The third part of the 2nd sentence reads:

    nor to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    Part (3) again we see "person within its jurisdiction: meaning person who are under the jurisdiction of the Corporate United States located in Washington, DC. and Federal Territories in each of the States. (ie Military Bases, Court Houses Federal land etc.). It is basically the same thing as part 1 above.

    Part (3) goes on to say "equal protection of the laws". These are Not Common Laws. These are the laws that congress and State Legislators can enact without Constitutional restriction and limitations against U.S. citizens who are under its jurisdiction due to the 2nd and 4th Articles of the U.S. Constitution.

    NOW, Where are the unalienable Rights that they were endowed with???

    They were lost when they were Naturalize!

    A Very SLICK U.S. Deep State Government even back then. Yes, if you read the oath they take to become a U.S. citizen you well see where they have to surrender all sovereignty of any country they are from to be a U.S. citizen. They have unknowingly given their God given Rights away to be a "FREE" U.S. citizen and under its jurisdiction.

    They put the blacks back in chains again the day they took the oath.

    This is corruption, so I am hoping president Trump can get congress to redo this amendment to make all American's equal or come out and tell everyone the TRUTH before he leaves office.

    Any one who can prove me wrong would be doing this country a a big favor.

    Carl, you may have noticed I haven't participated in your blogs for a while. The reasons? Well, I'm not fond of following and contributing then waking up one day to find *poof* it is gone. And I'm not a big fan of your constant whining about the natural and normal conversation drift that occurs in these blogs. I do, however, enjoy seeing your tirades about having to write your (real) name on a piece of paper, having to show your picture (I'm with you on this point, now that I've seen it, I can't unsee it), and having to walk uphill in snow both ways to school. But I'm making an exception this time because I have something important to share:

    I don't know, Carl. I don't claim anything more than ordinary intelligence. And, reading these comments always leaves me feeling particularly reasonable. That is exactly what I interpreted your post to mean, as did everyone else... As a matter of fact, I would take your last line as doubling down on that hypothesis.

    I would think you would be happy that people drift away from the original subject, unless there is a lot to say one way or the other about it. Frankly, I think you answer your own blogs looking for people to agree with you. I like to come back with answers to comments addressed to my stupidity so I can show everyone just how much they don't know what is going on.

    PLUS - it actually makes your blogs more interesting, otherwise they are usually very cut and dry and short. By letting people open up you get a lot more comments to read even if mine sound crazy. Most people won't comment on my craziness as if they may actually believe some of it could be true.

    After the election, if people pay attention, they will see what I have been talking about. It will all be revealed and people will be in SHOCK!

    We need to stop being hateful to each other and start helping each other. People are going to need comforting when the SHTF and it will.

    Go to a Trump rally and watch how people show their love for each other, then tell me you would post your name and photo all over the internet.

    I let everyone who wants to call me anything they want to, but I'll be damed if I would put my family in the cross hairs of some crazy idiot who hates Trump. This world isn't safe.

    I call people idiots and brain dead because I am amazed at how little people know about their rights in this country.

    It appears the illegal immigrants know more than the American people but that isn't true either. Those illegal idiots are only repeating what some idiot lawyer traitor told them to say. They know nothing about our laws.

    Your Pipe Bomb blog has only two questions. You are attacking the left with your remarks and want to know why no one else see this. It wasn't a left or right person. It was just an idiot who wanted attention. Luckily he wasn't a killer.

    Why didn't you add that the man was white. That would of at least stirred some fire in LBR.

    The Deep State "NSA" already had the man's name BEFORE the man was captured. It was a setup by the deep state to hurt Trump at the polls. An out right attempt to violate the Hatch Act and get away with it.

    Keep up the good work Mr. CMcC.

    I know about a lot of things the government (Deep State) has done to the people and our country, Trump, and JFK Jr. and Trumps military is the only team who is going after them. Shame you don't know what is about to hit the fan next Sunday 11.11.18. I will leave yall alone for now.

    Mr. CMcC,

    Are you fully aware that the van in question was pasted with stickers just prior to being used? They weren't even showing any fading from the sun, yet meant to look like it was like that for some time.

    Also the packages had to be hand delivered by several people or the postal service needs to be investigated seriously.

    This bomb threat was all Trump needed to investigate the security of the Voting places where the vote counting would take place. The FBI planted video cameras everywhere to catch the people in voter fraud. Trump has it all on Tape and not just Miami.

    This will all surface in January!
