Fox News ^ | March 1, 2018

Posted on 03/02/2018 6:35:05 AM PST by Helicondelta

The Massachusetts man who allegedly mailed a white powder to Donald Trump Jr. has previously donated to a Democratic political action committee and shared anti-Trump posts on social media, including comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, opened the letter in the couple’s New York City apartment Feb. 12 and reported feeling nauseous and coughing. President Trump’s daughter-in-law and two other people were taken to a hospital in the incident.

I’d be more scared by his ugly face than by his powder of whatever derivation.

His local paper (Salem Evening News) has run quite a few letters to the editor and even syndicated columns since Trump announced comparing Trump to Hitler and the USA today to “1930s Germany.” In fact, this is a common way of thinking among Democrats in the area. Rep. Moulton has gone on national TV and said all kinds of outrageous, CRAZY things about Trump. He sounded like a 12-year-old.

The local, failing news rag would never print anything that painted Obama this way. Oh, and I’m a xenophobe, a racist, a white supremacist, etc., with a low IQ because I don’t join in with this freak show. Words cannot express how much I despise this rather dominant element that says the same things this loon said and viciously abuses anyone who does not think and live EXACTLY like them. They are as crazy as he is, if you ask me.

Imagine, as we frequently can, that the politics were rather different. We’d be hearing about online hatred and powder control.

He’d have stiff competition from Moulton, though. Someone in the media should look into what’s been printed in the Salem Evening News and the Gloucester Daily Times about Trump in recent years! They should also go over transcripts of Moulton’s statements on Fox and elsewhere along these lines. If I remember correctly, Moulton himself was on Fox comparing Trump to Hitler a while back. Maybe they should expose the influence of the editors who choose to run these garbage letters/commentary and the statements of Moulton and our two senators demonizing Trump. Then they can call these pols and editors and ask them whether they think their inflammatory (crazy) language influenced this person to do this.

Many people don’t bat an eye around here if you call Trump Hitler, but if you say you voted for Trump they go berserk and start with the abuse and shunning. I met someone years ago who is conservative but does not give his views because he likes the parties that the left-wingers throw and doesn’t want to be shunned. He’s about twice as intelligent as any of these cretins. It’s outrageous that these loons can talk all day long at the top of their voices, but if anyone disagrees even slightly they are abused and shunned as a bad person. Please excuse my anger, but these people are very nasty, abusive, and hateful even as they preen and posture about their “goodness.” Vile.

Maybe Tucker Carlson, Hannity or Lou Dobbs could do this story.

I used to be part of a Hazmat Team. We responded to many “white powder” incidents. This was more in vogue a few years ago. Someone almost always seems to feel nauseous after being victimized by this type of event. We actually did collect some samples that contained hazardous substances; there are all sorts of easily available chemicals and biological compounds that need to be handled with care.

We had numerous testing kits and advanced equipment that gave us the ability to deduce what most of the substances were. But it can be very difficult to do with a high degree of certainty because most of the time you are dealing with substances that are a combination of chemicals and they can just be carriers for biological substances. It is an interesting challenge and much of the time we can only come up with fairly high probabilities of what we think that we have. But being 90% certain of what you have on an incident like this is really not very comforting or conclusive. So if you have what appears to be a harmless substance, but you have victims reporting symptoms... as part of our analysis the victims often need to be “decontaminated” and sent to the hospital for observation. This creates all sorts of other headaches for everyone involved.

For several years I was the generally highest ranking and most senior officer on the team so I would have the chiefs and PIOs (Public Information Officers) always wanting to know exactly what we had. It was almost never possible to give them anything more than high probabilities.
