Hazmat Crew Swarms Kav-Supporting Senator’s House – Investigation Underway Now

Published

on

A number of politicians have been violently threatened this year. Some with outright death threats and others with vile, profane items sent to their homes and offices. It’s not even safe to have dinner with your spouse in DC anymore… just ask Ted Cruz about that. And with the left whipping up their supporters into a frenzy, things are sure to deteriorate even further.

When something like this happens, sometimes even a Hazmat crew has to be called in for the investigation. This particular senator’s sin was supporting Justice Kavanaugh. From Fox News:

A hazardous materials team was called to the Bangor, Maine home of Sen. Susan Collins Monday after a threatening letter containing what its author said was the poison ricin was delivered there.

Collins spokesperson Annie Clark said on Twitter that Collins’ husband, Tom Daffron, the couple’s dog and parts of the home were quarantined while the letter was analyzed. Clark added that the home was cleared and the couple “will be able to remain at home tonight.”

Outside the house, a Bangor Daily News photographer captured an image of a person in a hazmat suit holding an envelope in a plastic bag. Later, the FBI arrived, along with vans carrying people in military uniforms, the newspaper reported.

Law enforcement officials were analyzing the contents of the letter and the investigation into its origins was ongoing Monday night. An FBI spokeswoman told The Associated Press that preliminary tests on the envelope indicated there was no threat to the public.

It was unclear who sent the letter and why. But critics have hurled threats at Collins recently over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court amid historic allegations of sexual misconduct against the federal judge.

Clark tweeted late Monday night that the envelope incident was “the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff.”

Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, who voted against Kavanaugh, came to his fellow senator’s defense.

“Regardless of any political differences, @SenatorCollins, her family, and her staff should not have to be subjected to these threats — there’s just no place for it in our discourse,” he tweeted.

In a statement, Collins and Daffron said they were “very grateful for the immediate and professional assistance that we received” from the authorities.

“We are also truly appreciative of the many well wishes that we received today,” the couple added. “Our friends and neighbors have been incredibly kind and have even offered to open their homes to us. We feel blessed to live in such a supportive community.”

Collins signaled that she would vote for Kavanaugh in a dramatic Senate floor speech on Sept. 28. The judge was confirmed the following day by a 50-48 vote.

But in the wake of Collins’ support, activists lashed out against her and her fellow Senate colleagues who voted to confirm Kavanaugh.

“Senator Susan Collins is the mother & grandmother of white women in America who gave us a Donald Trump presidency. The 53%,” tweeted Linda Sarsour, a far-left activist and a leader of the Women’s March that branded Collins a “rape apologist” after the speech. “She is a disgrace & her legacy will be that she was a traitor to women and marginalized communities. History will not treat her kindly.”

“A white woman Senator is talking about presumption of innocence that is never offered to Black men in America. You are watching white supremacy live on the Senate Floor,” Sarsour said even before Collins finished her speech.

Kat Calvin, the founder of anti-voter ID group “Spread the Vote” that claims to be non-partisan, urges people to publicly harass Collins over her voting decision.

“Never let Collins have a moment of peace in public again,” she wrote.

An anti-Collins fundraiser page raised nearly $3 million in pledges by the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote, with the money going to her future opponent.

“If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020,” the fund’s organizers wrote. “We will get you out of office.”

‘Ridiculously Unfair To The United States’: Trump Puts His Foot Down, Gives European Allies HUGE Ultimatum

President Trump has one international policy position absolutely clear: the United States will no longer tolerate being abused by bad deals and agreements.

After a weekend with international partners and European allies, Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to echo his policy position once more.

“Just returned from France where much was accomplished in my meetings with World Leaders,” the U.S. president said before scolding allied countries. “Never easy bringing up the fact that the U.S. must be treated fairly, which it hasn’t, on both Military and Trade.”

Trump highlighted that the U.S. pays a considerable amount to European allies only to then have to have a trade deficit with them as well, a double cost that the U.S. is shouldering.

No more, Trump said.

“We pay for LARGE portions of other countries military protection, hundreds of billions of dollars, for the great privilege of losing hundreds of billions of dollars with these same countries on trade. I told them that this situation cannot continue – It is, and always has been, ridiculously unfair to the United States. Massive amounts of money spent on protecting other countries, and we get nothing but Trade Deficits and Losses.”

Trump then offered an ultimatum to these countries: pay up for the world’s best military or finance their own.

“It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves…and Trade must be made FREE and FAIR!” he said.

Look:

Over the weekend, President Trump was in France where he celebrated the 100th year conclusion of World War One with French President Emanuel Macron.

Politico reports that the weekend was not exactly the friendliest of exchanges as Macron and others took subtle jabs at President Trump and his “America First” ideology. Macron specifically jabbed Trump in his commemorating speech:

He seemed most at ease late Sunday afternoon, on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, as he visited the Suresnes American Cemetery and memorial just outside Paris, where the stage and star power were his alone.

There, standing before rows upon rows of simple white crosses with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance, he commemorated Americans killed in “The Great War” and paid tribute to the way the U.S. fought alongside European nations.

“Earlier this year, President Macron presented an oak sapling from Belleau Wood as a gift to our nation — an enduring reminder of our friendship sealed in battle,” Trump told the audience, referring to the French president’s state visit in April. “We fought well together. You could not fight better than we fought together.”

And:

From Macron to Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the message seemed clear: Trump is taking the U.S. in a more isolated direction, while former allies band together to reject him.

Before roughly 70 world leaders, Macron, for instance, criticized the nationalist movement that Trump has embraced and made a cornerstone of his two-year-old presidency.

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” Macron said earlier Sunday at a ceremony in Paris. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying, ‘Our interest first, who cares about the others?’”

JAW-DROPPING: Under Trump, Illegal Immigrant Arrests Up 4,000 PERCENT

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

When the American people elected President Trump, they sent a clear signal to Washington D.C. that it was time for a change. A change from the swamp, from fake news, from slow-moving bureaucracy, from a shrinking military, and a complete switch from the Obama administration’s handling of illegal immigration.

Illegal entry into the United States is no longer the open door that it was under the former administration as Trump is actually enforcing the immigration laws already on the books.

That means the arrest of those who sneak illegally into the country, something the Obama administration struggled to achieve.

The Daily Caller reports the Trump administration has so far made tremendous progress — a near-4000 percent boom — when it came to arresting illegal immigrants on federally controlled lands along the U.S.-Mexico border. Check it out:

Federal agents apprehended nearly 4,000 percent more illegal immigrants on federally controlled lands along the U.S.-Mexico border in the last six months compared to the same time during 2016, according to the Interior Department.

Interior law enforcement officials apprehended and turned over 4,010 individuals to U.S. Border Patrol agents from May to October, the department revealed Friday in a press release. That’s approximately 4,000 percent higher than the 126 illegal aliens turned over to border agents from May to October 2016.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke revealed the colossal figure in a statement where he lauded his department’s immigration efforts. He said:

“First off, I applaud all our law enforcement for their tireless work keeping the American people safe and securing the border. President Trump made a promise to the American people that his administration will do everything we can to secure the southern border and protect our people, and that is exactly what Interior’s law enforcement professionals are doing. The fact that we were able to increase arrests by almost 4,000 percent is undeniable proof that there’s a big problem. Under the previous administration, Interior’s borderlands were basically an open door for illegal activity; and, what few law enforcement officers were down there were left unprotected and without the resources and backup needed to keep communities and themselves safe.”

“The first six months of the border surge proved that there is a huge problem with illegal crossings on Interior lands and that a prolonged and more robust operation is needed until the wall is completed. We will increase our presence on the border in targeted regions and provide additional assistance to teams deploying in response to the oncoming caravan.”

Here’s more, per the Department of the Interior:

In May of 2018, Secretary Zinke directed a Border Support Surge initiative, which coordinated law enforcement officers from the Department of the Interior and the U.S. Border Patrol to execute high level operations to patrol and protect the border with Mexico. The team saw immediate results.

During the first six months of the border surge, Interior law enforcement officers tallied:

  • 4,010 apprehensions have been made and turned over to the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol
  • 224 turn-backs (Were coming into the US, but turned around when they saw law enforcement)
  • 469 apprehended on non-federal lands
  • 2,356 pounds of drugs seized
  • Several vehicles, firearms, and other items confiscated
  • The 4,000 percent increase compares the first six months of the surge (2018) to the same six months of the last year of the Obama Administration (2016), and assesses the same geographic areas.

From May 2016 until October 2016, Interior law enforcement apprehended and turned over 126 illegal aliens to the U.S. Border Patrol. During the same time period in 2018, Interior apprehended and turned over 4,010 illegal aliens to the U.S. Border Patrol.
