Unknown White Powder Sent To Don Trump Jr. and Wife Vanessa; Vanessa Trump Goes to Hospital for Observation After Exposure to the Powder
Update: Coughing and Nauseous

The leftwing media's tone basically justifies violent attacks and terrorism.

Vanessa Trump and two others had to undergo decontamination and remain under observation at a New York City hospital after opening an envelope which contained an unknown white powder. The Secret Service has joined an investigation by New York City police into what appears to be an attack on the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump and his son Don Jr:




Update: Though the coughing and nausea may indicate this is a legitimate chemical/biological attack, it should also be kept in mind that some people, like me, will basically produce physical symptoms if there is a strong suggestion of them. For some of us, given a sufficient mental or psychological trigger, the body will start mimicking the physical symptoms we expect.

I'm not saying this isn't a real attack; I'm just saying I know that I, personally, will present with some bad symptoms that are almost entirely psychosomatic.

I would imagine that being exposed to a mysterious white powder, designed to terrify you, would be pretty terrifying for anyone, and terror can have powerful effects on the physical body.

There are loons everywhere, and of all stripes. But targeting family members is vile and cowardly, even above and beyond the cravenness needed to send poison (assuming the worst) through the mail. Thank G-d the left is so emotionally balanced and stable overall, or we might have to worry about an outbreak of such sick actions.

24 Long-time Commenter - I don't think so. There are always threats we never hear about - most of them, actually. But those are to the principals, not family.


There was some typical predictable b.s. back in Obama's first term about threat levels, but they were nothing compared to the worst under Dubya, when the S.S. saw an environment they'd never seen.

Not.

The left-wing and its propaganda organs totally are down with political violence. They all but freely ejaculated after the attempt to decapitate the GOP House leadership and applauded the Antifa violence at Trump rallies. Of course, they (along with Never Trump) want POTUS murdered but they are ratcheting it up one step at a time. We are much closer to civil war than any of us realized just three years ago. People who admire North Korea consider physical violence part and parcel of politics.

I had the pleasure of extensive experience with the "baby Flots" of the post-Soviet period, before there had been any upgrades, new planes, partnerships with western airlines to improve standards, etc.


Chickens on an airliner: check

Broken seats and other eye-poppers: check

Plane with no air-stair for deplaning at blacked out airport with no power in the middle of the night: check

And my favorite I've told before: watching two guys with lit cigarettes dancing on their lower lips as they vigorously discussed soccer or something - as they held the fuel line up to refuel the plane (it was dripping, too). (That was in Vladikavkaz, formerly Ordzhonokidze, which I was just surprised to learn was the high-water mark for the Wehrmacht in its drive on the Caucasus in 1942)

Last night I watched the old cold-war Charles Bronson thriller "Telefon". Holds up surprisingly well, and Lee Remick was smokin' hawt.

Anyway, there's a scene where the CIA is trying to figure out why all of these normal citizens are going nuts and attacking US military installations in suicide attacks (later they find out that they're old Soviet sleeper agents, activated by a rogue KGB clerk). One of the CIA doods loudly proclaims that he thinks it's a right-wing radical group trying to squish detente.

Runs his big pie-hole just in time for the forensics on one of the agents to show that the cause of death was an old Soviet poison pill. His boss sarcastically smacks his pee-pee by asking where an American right-wing radical group would get a supply of SOVIET suicide pills.

Don't forget inauguration-related attacks/planned attacks, including plans to poison inauguration eve event for new right types, the plans to storm the Trump family during the parade, and the successful if temporary blocking of mall entrances and metro rails cars using chains, etc.

He's got the line, both LE and the military, on his side...IMO

If he ever declares a state of emergency, then he's good...plus he'll have the law on his side
- every "sanctuary city" politician is in violation of 8 USC 1324
- he's got the entire democong party on the hook for conspiracy to violate that law
- my sig has an argument for RICO on top of that
- there is also the question of democong involvement in sedition (and conspiracy for that, too)
-(anyone know about the "fake Russian news" law, whether it applies to the Ministry of Truth and their year long antics? Love to see them hoist on their own petard there)

The big issue would be the political fallout...again, IMO, it's better to rip the infected bandaid off and air out the corruption than to try and baby the problem a little at a time.

244 Update: Though the coughing and nausea may indicate this is a legitimate chemical/biological attack, it should also be kept in mind that some people, like me, will basically produce physical symptoms if there is a strong suggestion of them. For some of us, given a sufficient mental or psychological trigger, the body will start mimicking the physical symptoms we expect.

I'm not saying this isn't a real attack; I'm just saying I know that I, personally, will present with some bad symptoms that are almost entirely psychosomatic.

I would imagine that being exposed to a mysterious white powder, designed to terrify you, would be pretty terrifying for anyone, and terror can have powerful effects on the physical body.

280 on the topic of nausea - there's a new big going around, not the flu, something else, incredibly infectious. At least it runs it's course in about 72 hours. Day 1 - increasing nausea, to the point where when you drive you are constantly looking for good spots to pull over and throw up; day 2, fever which spikes quickly amid continuing nausea and pain in all the joints; Day 3, you actually start feeling much better, fever goes back down and nausea leaves as the problems move into the lower GI tract. It's just that you gotta stay home because you never wanna be more than 20 steps or so away from the commode.

So yeah, I'm on day 3 right now.

The artist's schtick seems to be to take old paintings and replace the original person in them with a black person, generally a modern one like Kobe Bryant or a rapper...

So it could be there is a painting somewhere with a white woman holding another white woman's head and he just replaced the subject, not the victim.

Based on the clothing on the subject I think that's what he did - it is very old school European...

376 the constant attack on patriotic Americans by the media, calling them deplorable racists, is not healthy. We laugh it off and joke about being "deplorables", but there is an overhead cost of the hate.

The left accepts the hate virus ... it surely affects them as well, but by throwing the hate on others, they seem to attain a degree of "immunity". That is unhealthy projection, or transference, but it is an escape.

They might also call it cognitive dissonance, but being in the family gives them comfort (like a mob family, not a healthy family).

Germany gave Austro-Hungary the go-ahead for war with Serbia.

AH declared war first, but they did have a reason to - Serbian terrorists assassinated the heir to the throne.

Ultimately I think you have to pin the blame on the Serbs. Yes, something else would still have probably caused the war sans their terrorism...but they created a scenario that couldn't be negotiated away.

If WWI doesn't start when it does, they might have become a significant power again in another generation . They seemed to have solved the problem with having a country that was almost half German/half Hungarian and the heir to the throne had thoughts on how to integrate the Slavs...

449 Update: Though the coughing and nausea may indicate this is a legitimate chemical/biological attack, it should also be kept in mind that some people, like me, will basically produce physical symptoms if there is a strong suggestion of them. For some of us, given a sufficient mental or psychological trigger, the body will start mimicking the physical symptoms we expect.

I'm not saying this isn't a real attack; I'm just saying I know that I, personally, will present with some bad symptoms that are almost entirely psychosomatic.

I would imagine that being exposed to a mysterious white powder, designed to terrify you, would be pretty terrifying for anyone, and terror can have powerful effects on the physical body.



I don't get the flu shot because I always get sick when I do and I know, I know it's completely psychosomatic but there you go.

Some of the super duper tolerant Leftists are pushing the line that this was her coke dealer making a delivery and she really OD'd.

So help me, if Trump manages to make the courts revisit Sullivan as applied, I'll, um, do something. I don't know what but something!

478 438 By the way an interesting thing to note about the Austro-Hungarian empire is that they were an aristocratic state like Russia and Germany...but unlike the other two they were experimenting economically - allowing a lot more economic freedom at least.

If WWI doesn't start when it does, they might have become a significant power again in another generation . They seemed to have solved the problem with having a country that was almost half German/half Hungarian and the heir to the throne had thoughts on how to integrate the Slavs...
Posted by: 18-1 at February 12, 2018 02:51 PM (Z8FFX)


====================


The Archduke was an interesting figure: On one hand, he was your standard Austrian noble with all the ethnic chauvanism that would entail. On the other hand he was an Austrian Patriot first and formost. One result was his advocacy of restructuring the empire as a multiethinic central european federation under the Habsburg Crown, something that was well on the way to implementation throughout the empire at his death. The other result was his strident opposition to any war: he knew the Empire was in no condition to fight a war. His death removed any brakes on Chief of Staff von Hotzendorf, a huge war hawk that the Crown Prince had been restraining.

Actually the plan of Leopold, Emperor of Belgium and Victoria's Uncle.

There was a Brit Series, hard to find now, called "Edward the King" about Edward VII from the period of 1900 - 1910. Showcased the incredible efforts he made to keep all of the family members on board with each other and keep out of doing things that would lead to war. He had the stature, gravitas, and understanding to keep all the Royal houses under control.

but he died in 1910, and there was nobody with his skills to take his place. George V was too young, Nicky of Russia was too stupid, and Wilhelm was too proud.

528 What's the deal with Sullivan?
Wrote a buncha operas

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor


Har, har. ATC is upset about Trump revisiting Sullivan. My thought was, Ed's dead so it couldn't be that and I don't think she was referring to Gilbert.

So, what's up with Sullivan.

One of the other major windmills at which I like to tilt is getting NYT vs. Sullivan as applied either overturned or for courts to stop treating every single person in the world who is ever in the news for anything ever as a public figure about whom all comments are fair game.

I would also like a unicorn.

532 Chief of Staff von Hotzendorf

'
A part of the reason for the war is that Franz Graf Conrad von Hötzendorf was in love with a married woman and he thought that the only way he could have here is to become a war hero because nothing would be denied a war hero. In fairness, he was a saber-rattler from way back.

533 As a minor point, if it is illegal to get information from Russia about your political opponent (under what law exactly?!?), isn't it equally illegal to do the same with Britain?

Yeah the latter is an "ally" and the former while not an enemy likes to give us the finger, but...either both are illegal or neither are...

534 So we're refighting WWI now? Nice break from the Civil War, I guess!


ThunderB, the twatters appear normal to me.


Der Trumpentwatter has one I think can be re-worked for comic effect.


"After so stupidly spending $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is now time to (strikethrough) start investing in our own country (end strike) stupidly spend billions at home!"


(given his near-miraculous nature in terms of the general picture, Trump must be forgiven this stupid stand-by of his on the Middle East, but stupid it is - and also raises - NOT "begs" - the question of why he's so hot to "rebuild" a military with a capability that is multiples of what he apparently considers desirable options for the US ...... you don't need 1/2 the current military for "defense" and deterrence, much less a more robust one)

541 18-1 AFAIK the only illegality would be paying a foreign entity for campaign-related services (which apparently happened with Steele, and the obvious Fusion GPS/law firm "cut-outs" in between).


But I think that's an FEC regulation/law - in other words, don't sweat it. Any more than Obama's people lost sleep waiting for the legal consequences of switching off the feature on their 2008 campaign website that was supposed to block foreign donations.

561 The overall cause of WW1 was psychological - all of the Euro's were thinking it was going to be much like the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, which only lasted 6 months and had minimal casualties. This was still in living memory for a lot of the senior people at the time. They looked at war as a nice way to reset a lot of disputes and settle old scores, and none of them thought the cost would be very high.

Add to that the fact that they all were developing advanced weaponry - machine guns, mechanized transports, high fire rate cannons (especially the French) which their respective military staffs all assured the leaders that they were guaranteed a quick and glorious victory.

None of them ever once thought about how mechanized warfare could wipe out tens of thousands of soldiers in a single day. And once the carnage started, none of them could back out.

Never has so much been thrown away for so damn little.

A victorious Germany gets a few worthless colonies and perhaps control of a trade union in Europe.

A victorious Russia gets to control some more worthless Balkan provinces (and likely informally, not formally).

A victorious Britain/France got...Alsace at the cost of 2.5M lives.

Hell, Japan was likely the only country to come out of WWI with wins to exceed its losses.

===================

I doubt it. There's a reason why they were called "The Sick Man of Europe" even before the war. N. Africa was split between France and Italy with Egypt a British protectorate at that time and the Arabs were licking their chops. More likely: the "Young Turks" (who were Turkic nationalists) would have picked a fight with Russia over Armenia and would have gotten their ass handed to them and their empire dismantled because I doubt the Austrians and Germans would have gone to war for them (The Ottomans, while friendly to the Central Powers, were not in mutual aid treaties with them), but the French at a minimum would have been supportive of the Russians at a minimum.

The sad part? They were warned: the Continental military brass saw what happened in the Late Unpleasantness and yet thought "Nah, this won't happen to us". The Franco-Prussian War was so quick because the Prussians were just a little ahead of the Frogs on the artilliary front. No such difference in tech existed in 1914...

They had a shitload of debt and a crappy economy at the end with no territorial gains to show for it (You can blame that on Chief of Staff "Babba" Baccharis and his obsession with bloody frontal assaults). It was what ultimately led to Musselini's rise.

578 IMHO, what is going on is that POTUS plans to reveal that cures exist but are being withheld by Big Pharma which makes more money containing than curing, and with that money Big P buys/owns many politicians.

For a front row seat on The Draining of the Swamp, review this archive of posts by at least one person presumed to be in military intelligence and close to POTUS.

No wonder POTUS is being dehumanized...if they finally get him, 50 percent of the people will think he had it coming to him.

If you pray, pray for him and our great country.
