Former Labor Nominee Andy Puzder: Political Opponents Sent Threats and a Suspicious White Powder to My Wife
— Ace

While the media natters on about threats that have not been made, they are strangely quiet about threats that have actually been made.

Puzder said he received packages and letters that went beyond typical hate mail or opposition post cards distributed by left-wing groups and unions. A hazmat crew and FBI officials arrived at his Franklin, Tennessee home to retrieve and analyze a package containing white powder that his wife had opened, he said.

"There was an envelope left at our house addressed to my wife that had white powder in it, a pink piece of paper with 'Trump' written on it, and then obviously the white powder was in a plastic bag, but you open the envelope and a little powder came out," Puzder said. "We had an FBI terrorist team come to the house. We had a couple fire engines with hazmat teams come to the neighborhood."

...

Activists from Fight for $15, a protest movement backed by Service Employees International Union, demonstrated at Puzder's front door. His wife opened another package containing a noose, though Puzder did not witness that incident.

"I didn't see it, but I was told there was a paper-doll with a noose around its neck and there was--again, addressed to my wife, not addressed to me, which shows the cowardice of these people," Puzder said.

SEIU did not respond to a request seeking comment about whether the union condemned such behavior.

Terrorist groups often form a supposedly "clean-hands" front group which can pose as a semi-respectable bargaining partner for those the terrorists terrorize. Black September created the PLO as their respectable front-face, for example. Correction: CBD tells me the PLO was formed several years before Black September. Okay - so swap in the IRA and the "political wing" Sinn Fein.

I kinda feel like the Democrat Party is the front group for the extremist and violent groups it actually works hand in hand with, and the media is their communications department and crisis management firm.

21 Actually I think violence could be mainstreamed on the left. My old baby boomer comrades are unusually exercised over Trump and are filling Facebook with all kinds of incendiary rhetoric. Of course the joke is that in a real "revolution"--i.e., shooting war--they wouldn't stand a chance with their iPads and their Birkenstocks.

On the one hand, I doubt that wimpy Luke guy would really do it.

But were McDonalds to combine the self-help ordering kiosk, with a Japanese Sex Doll, well, first, the orders would be wild. And second, McDonalds would shatter every sales increase record in the history of sales increase records. That, just from sales from Teh Horde, I reckon?

Tappity tappity tap. ::: reads :::

"The store cannot sell the meat due to the tampering, and Cordingly said the market's loss is estimated to be more than $1,000."

Unsaleable? Due to contact with... flowers? Such a waste. If only there were processes by which such meat could be rendered palatable, and delicious, rather than discarded. Perhaps by the application of heat and smoke. But the results of such processes would have to be extensively tested in humans.

The people handling the flowers probably are covered with bacteria and nasty crud to begin with. Its overcautious but when it comes to food, well better safe than sorry. Its like the recall of foods. Say one piece of glass gets in a shipment of 10000 jars of baby food. You don't know which one has the glass, so you recall them all.

There are also the numerous cases of "refugees" who claimed in their application hearings here in the States that they faced inescapable risks of persecution, incarceration, assault, injury and death if they remained in their countries of origin.

Oh! The pathos!

Who then go on to, once they have their papers stamped with confirmed refugee status by Uncle Sugar, and are drawing benefits in the USA, regularly get on a plane to go back and visit those countries where they had claimed they would be put in such terrible danger.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at February 28, 2017 06:46 PM (zc3Db) The PLO pre-dates Black September by at least 6-7 years or more depending on how and when you define the PLO's inception. The PLO already existed and was trying to take over Jordan when in 1970 King Hussein put down that shit very violently and pointedly and essentially pushed the PLO out of Jordan into exile in Lebanon and elsewhere. The name "Black September" refers to that event and that is a radical offshoot of the PLO or a wholely owned subsidiary of the PLO depending upon where you stand.

Muscle has been outsourced to various community organized groups with funding funneled through foundations for cover.

Tides Foundation is the original "tor" of foundations. I'd imagine there are others now. I wonder if perhaps Soros serves a similar purpose where he funds groups but that much of the money comes from others who don't want their names on it.

251 "PLO was formed several years before Black September" Bobby Kennedy is still unavailable for comment, but your point still holds, Ace. Arafat was captured on audio instructing BS to execute our Amb. Cleo Noel and co., but Nixon was too busy with Watergate to deal properly. I recommend Norman Doidge's 2002 essay, Evil's Advantage Over Conscience "HOW IS IT that the Bush administration, which is deadly serious in opposing terrorists and those who harbor them, could let Colin Powell declare last week--on the same day that senior terrorist Yasser Arafat was caught funding the Al Aksa suicide bombers--that Arafat is no terrorist at all? On April 4, President Bush asked Israel to halt its attacks on Arafat's terrorist infrastructure. What must be going on in their minds? Are they serious or aren't they? Actually, they are serious about fighting terror. But they are also caught in a psychological bind that they do not understand. Letting Arafat go is part of a pattern that has recurred so often it cannot simply be described as a mistake. It is the same pattern that caused George Bush senior to refrain from finishing off Saddam Hussein when he had overwhelmed him. This week, Europe, the Arab world, and the Bush administration are hoping to see a diplomatic initiative develop that will ensure that Israel makes the same mistake George Bush senior did in Iraq, forbidding it from destroying Arafat and his regime. No one survives as long as Yasser Arafat--forty years as a terrorist--unless he knows something important about the weak spots in Western psychology. Israeli foreign minister Abba Eban once quipped that the Palestinians, under Arafat's leadership, "never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity." The remark hasn't aged well. Closer to the truth is that the West has, mysteriously, never missed an opportunity to revive Arafat. Arafat has been able to keep up his spirits because he understands how the Western psyche works in these near-death confrontations. This is because he, as a terrorist who lacks a conscience, can see things that those who have a conscience cannot. It is these insights that have preserved Yasser Arafat. It would be easy to attribute Arafat's endless second chances simply to a deluded left, since the left favors dealing with Arafat not as a criminal but as an equal. But now, the right and not the left holds power in Israel and the United States. Besides, historically, those who have revived Arafat have not all been leftists or ideological enemies of Israel. Many of them have known that Arafat is a liar and a terrorist. Arafat's psychological magic is most evident when he casts his spell on such men. But first, to make the case. The list of distinguished fighters of terrorism and tyranny who nonetheless have found themselves overriding their principles to let Arafat go rather than bringing him to justice is remarkable. Ronald Reagan brooked no compromise with the "evil empire," and bombed Muammar Qaddafi's home, nearly killing him. Yet in the 1980s, President Reagan pressured Menachem Begin to let Arafat and his fighters go free when the Israeli army had them cornered in West Beirut. Begin, who had made a career of resisting liberal democracies when they offered Israel bad advice, succumbed. Yitzhak Rabin, after fighting Arafat much of his adult life, decriminalized and rearmed him through Oslo, precisely when Arafat was at his weakest, fresh from endorsing the defeated Saddam Hussein. Ehud Barak had an extraordinary career fighting terrorists before Arafat proved his political undoing. The current President Bush came into office refusing to talk to Arafat or treat him like a normal head of state. Bush's position was reinforced when Palestinians celebrated in the streets on September 11; and he appeared to be viscerally revolted by Palestinian and Fatah suicide bombings in Israel this past December. But when such men are dealing with Arafat, there is eventually an about-face, and President Bush did his in March."....... entire essay linked in nic below btw, I agree with the President's assessment of increased Jewish Cemetery vandalism as false flag agit/prop by deranged Leftists.

252 "CBD tells me the PLO was formed several years before Black September. Okay - so swap in the IRA and the "political wing" Sinn Fein." Uh, no, Sinn Fein was founded in 1905. The Provisional IRA (with which Sinn Fein is associated) was created in 1969; the Official IRA (from which the Provos split) was founded in 1922.
