Unfortunately, I have seen conservations online, heard it discussed on talk shows, and have had my own discussions on how President Trump’s security teams, private and secret service, have been able to keep unstable leftist, like the Bernie supporter that almost kill Representative Scalise, from assassinating President Trump.
With the elections coming up in our deeply divided nation, especially now with BLM, ANTIFA, Poor People’s Campaign, the anti-Trump media and sudden death of Justice Ginsberg, etc., some of our already scared American citizens are time bombs ready to go off.
For those who feel controlled by local governments and are suddenly isolated and dealing with financial and domestic issues created by the shutdown, the US has seen an increase in their suicides and domestic abuse as a result.
CNN is reporting that the package was intercepted earlier this week and subjected to two rounds of testing. Law enforcement from the Secret Service and FBI confirmed that the substance in the package was the highly potent poison, ricin.
Ricin is extracted from castor beans and is often used in terror plots. When made in a powder form, it is among the most deadly poisons. If ingested, injected, or inhaled, it causes nausea, vomiting, and internal bleeding of the stomach and intestines.
It is then followed by failure of the kidneys, spleen, liver. It then finally causes death by the collapse of the circulatory system. Death from ricin occurs between 36 – 72 hours after ingestion.
It’s likely the package never even reached the White House.
All mail for the White House is sorted and screened at an offsite facility, the network noted.
The package appears to have been sent from Canada, an official told the New York Times.
In 2018, a former sailor was arrested in Utah for allegedly sending envelopes containing the unprocessed source of ricin — seeds from the castor plant — to Trump at the White House and also to the Pentagon.
Fortunately, there are a lot of safety measures in place, and the president was not in imminent danger, but just another reminder there are a lot of crazy people, who might be capable of following through if given the opportunity to kill the leader of the free world.
