If people really wanted to bomb something they would just do it and not tell us about I first. This is all about either creating fear or testing responses for a real bombing in the future.


Exactly the way it is IMO.

This is more about causing doubt and fear. FEAR PORN if you will. The bad people just do it.

There was a bomb threat at a high school across the river in Jersey City last Friday.

My wife was stuck as the streets around the area were closed forever and she couldn’t get to the PATH train.

I said, half jokingly, I guess, “It’s a test of response and an effort to desensitize the people and responders.”

Maybe I’ll take back that half joking manner.

I see a pattern.

Ever heard of recon and intel gathering?

If I wanted to bomb a certain type of target or group of related targets, I’d gauge perimeter security, response times (for follow on detonations to catch the first responders), type, capability and intensity of initial response (I’m no martyr), the routes first responders took in response to the threat, any second ring security they employed and a bunch of other things. I’d also flood the system with these threats in order to, hopefully, desensitize response as much as possible. You know how I’d do that? Call in fake threats and observe. Then, I’d give them some time to relax and listen to people telling them that people would just explode stuff without any prep or warning and/or strike similar (but not the same) targets in the same area.

But, sure. If you’re a simpleton with no real agenda, go ahead, blow crap up.

There were around 11 or so here in Nebraska just today.

Seems like a coordinated effort to me, but that's just my opinion.

That and to wear thin local resources and possibly keep LEO's confused and on their toes.

There's a lot of advantage in keeping a populace in a constant fight or flight mode.

The bomb threats were a robo-spam email sent out to hundreds of different locations which included hospitals, government buildings, schools and businesses and individuals. The email said that if they didn't receive a $20,000 bitcoin payment to a listed address by the end of the day there would be an explosion.

The hospital in my town, Hayward, Wi, also got the bomb threat and did an evacuation. They had the local transit buses come and move all the patients to another location and cancelled all appointments for remainder of the day. Was a big deal in our small town. The threat came in around the same time as all the threats went out nationwide.

We got the email where I work today. I have removed who it was sent to for privacy. The domain vrprek.com traces back to Russia. The current ip address is 194.58.58.155

Subject: Dont get on my nerves

Hello. There is a bomb (tronitrotoluene) in the building where your company is conducted. It was assembled under my direction. It has small dimensions and it is hidden very well, it is impossible to damage the supporting building structure by my bomb, but in case of its explosion you will get many wounded people.
My man keeps the territory under the control. If any unnatural activity, panic or policeman is noticed he will power the bomb.
I can call off my man if you pay. You pay me 20.000 dollars in BTC and the device will not explode, but don't try to deceive me -I assure you that I will call off my recruited person solely after 3 confirmations in blockchain network.

Here is my btc address - 1DKej2QVvLWf2B8kJpqvnUGycmoS3Rm7C9

You must transfer bitcoins by the end of the workday. If the workday is over and people start leaving the building the bomb will detonate.
Nothing personal, if I do not receive the bitcoins and an explosive device detonates, next time other commercial enterprises will send me a lot more, because it is not a one-time action.
For my safety, I will not log into this email account. I monitor my address every 20 minutes and after receiving the payment I will give the command to my person to leave your area.

If a bomb blows up and the authorities see this letter:
We are not the terrorist society and dont assume any responsibility for acts of terrorism in other buildings.

I remember in my early school days, it seemed like we would get at least one bomb threat a year. This was at a tiny, tiny school in a small town where everyone knows everyone. No one ever took it seriously. They would either just cancel school for the day or evacuate us all in the most casual manner to the parking lot or a nearby church for 20 minutes while they did a quick search of lockers and then it was back to business as usual. We would all be laughing and joking about it the entire time with no concern. I don't think they would even call the parents and let them know something was going on. Then after that day, you'd never hear anything else about it. No one would ever get in trouble, it was never investigated, it was just always assumed to be a prank harmless prank, probably some kid just wanting a day off of school and turns out it was, thankfully. This was pre-911, before things like school shootings and terrorism sadly became commonplace.

False flags by the government themselves cannot be dismissed. Organized conspiracy by people in power is a matter of history not of theory.

Many states across the world including the US, has increasingly adopted as its governing style the authoritarian notion that the government knows best and therefore it must control, regulate and dictate almost everything about the citizenry’s public, private and professional lives.

Fear has been well proven to be one of the best ways for government to pass laws that tighten security and the effect of that is nearly always negative on personal freedom and privacy .

Government has a vested interest in threats and 'attacks' on schools and often official narratives of what happened are found to be conspiracies pushed by the State.

Only the naive would not, in this day and age, suspect government involvement with any reported threats on schools shopping centers and most other places where there are crowds and kids.
