You don’t mess with Mad Dog.

From NY Post: Two envelopes addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson have initially tested positive for the deadly poison ricin at the Pentagon’s mail facility, according to a report.

The packages, which were delivered Monday, were intercepted before making it into the sprawling headquarters of the Defense Department in Virginia near Washington, DC, spokesman Chris Sherwood said Tuesday.

They triggered alarms as they underwent a security screening at the off-site mail processing center, according to the Military Times.

A defense official told CNN that the intended recipients were Mattis and Richardson.

“On Monday, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency detected a suspicious substance during mail screening at the Pentagon’s remote screening facility,” Army Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement.

“The envelopes were taken by the FBI this morning for further analysis,” he said, adding that all US Postal Service mail received at the screening facility Monday was under quarantine and posed no threat to Pentagon personnel.

The FBI said in a statement that as the envelopes are undergoing further testing, “we will have no further comment.”

Ricin, a highly toxic compound extracted from castor beans, has been used in terror plots and is lethal in tiny doses if swallowed, inhaled or injected. It is 6,000 times more potent than cyanide.

If ingested, it causes nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding of the stomach and intestines, followed by failure of the liver, spleen and kidneys, and death by collapse of the circulatory system.

  1. Rush Limbaugh: Democrats afflicted by mental problems

    • Mental problems can’t really explain it all.

      After considering all the evidence, I’ve come to the conclusion that the far-Left are not just mentally ill, they are demon-possessed. My conclusion was not arrived at lightly.

      • I think you are correct on the demon possession Dr. E. I would add that the beliefs and conduct of a lot of these loony left attract demons too. Demons are attracted to darkness and negative energy where they can get a hold more easily of the person. But in some cases people invite them in. I would say the following video shows someone who looks by his actions and the pentagram around his neck that he has invited them.

      • @Dr Eowyn,
        No it doesn’t but the horde of “useless idiots” are. The ones “leading” the herd, are our old enemies, Bolsheviks, Pharisees, Jacobins, Frankists, Sabbateans etc. “Demon-possessed” could very well be. Many of those hippie Satanists from the cultural Marxist 60’s revolution are now in high places in government,media, education, & corporations.

      • Yes, some of them are what they would have called once upon a time, “Communist dupes”.


        We were discussing how deep the fracture was the other day. I’m in agreement that it is far too deep to be mended. We can’t possibly work with these animals.

  2. An envelope containing ricin was also sent to Pres. Trump. Thankfully, it never made it to the White House.

  3. I assumed the security measures regarding such mail were quite well known and if that is true it would show the ignorance and desperation of would-be assassins.

  4. Where does one get their hands on something as lethal as Ricin? Do you just walk into Walmart and ask what aisle it is on? Do you cook it up on your kitchen stove?

    I don’t think Secretary Mattis, Admiral Richardson, or President Trump will take this lying down.😎

    And what was the biggest news story of yesterday? That Judge Kavanaugh once threw an ice cube at someone!😑

    • I’m curious too yet I’m not about to do a search for “ricin” on the internet!

      • Me either…you never know…😸

      • Trust me, its so easy anybody could do it. The problem is that it is toxic by absorption as well as inhalation. And, no, I wouldn’t look it up. There was a recipe for it in “The Anarchist’s Cookbook” and several other publications.

        I won’t say more other than to comment that it is a particularly scary agent. The ingredients are easily obtained and it is easy to manufacture with the proper safeguards. It’s been around a long time.

    • I hope you are right Maryaha about Mattis et all not taking this lying down!
      I can’t even imagine how they go about tracking where it came from though. With no return address they can only narrow it down to where it was mailed from and even then, a person could have traveled by car and mailed it far from where they live. I do hope they find them, and hang’um high.
      In fact I am waiting for that useless Free-masonic turd Paul Ryan to leave the house and for someone like Jim Jordan to get in who might actually censor the antics of those like Maxine Waters for inciting violence and sedition. If Republicans do not start getting a hold on these violent left wing demons by making them hurt for what they have done they are just going to continue to become more emboldened and the violence is going to get worse.

    • I read about how to make it a long time ago. It isn’t hard. What’s hard is how to handle it without poisoning one’s self. It is nasty stuff with no antidote.

  5. Western man & Woman (and their culture)are under attack by Godless Marxists and insane lefty SJW’s, and their ilk. Its gonna get worse I believe before something is done. More need to wake up to the very real threat by the forces of evil.

  6. “N.B.C.” styled letters again? Probably the same bunch behind the anthrax letters of the past decade, (also given how police-state-ified the postal system has been the past decade as well,how could they “not find” who mailed these things? Any guesses as to how long it would take them to bust some poor kid trying to mail fireworks to a friend? Theres something rotten in the postal service, beyond the NSA demanding letter “covers”.) I suspect some psy-ops tie-in somewhere, as well.

  7. A suspect, William Clyde Allen III, has been arrested by Logan, Utah police.


    • Yeah, I read this too. The MSM doesn’t seem to be making much of a fuss over it. If they do they’ll claim it was “Russians”.

      The level of violence is clearly increasing. I read about incidents every day now. Hatred is being fomented and directed. We should pray for peace and prepare for the alternative.

  8. I understand that Trump had one addressed to him that was intercepted. There were a couple of others as well. Maybe this is their opening shot of their much-wanted civil war.

    Remember when the Anthrax scare happened right before the “Patriot” Act legislation? Maybe they think they can intimidate them into dropping Kavenaugh.

  9. Thank GOD there a few people still ON THE JOB these days…ie, ricin intercept. Don’t know how THAT sort of intercept exactly works…but praise to those who really really did their JOB and stopped this!!!!

    Goin’ out on a limb here until proven otherwise, for instance, maybe an Independent or Republican Baptist, pro-life, female, mother of 4 sent this ricin…but…pretty sure it most likely was a DEMOCRAT(of any gender or circumstance) BEHAVING BADLY: we have plenty of evidence of such crap over the last 2 years…….way past time to call them out and keep identifying their exploits ….in fact…LIST THEM, in dated order…on any and every campaign lit as we go into elections…….

  10. Being a veteran certainly doesn’t surprise me. I just read about a group of sailors at Navy Base Kitsap – Bangor, in Washington State that were arrested on base for bringing a 14 year old into the barracks and filming porn with her and several other sailors.
