Uh oh, FNC reporter just discussed that the mentally ill man reported by local news was a conspiracy theorist....

Maybe he bought into the whole "Clinton Body Count" nonsense and believes she's a ravenous vampire or whatever reason they think the Clinton's kill folks. I think it's to hide the fact that Bill...cheats...right? Good work Hillary.

Seriously though mental illness is a major issue...poor guy, I hope this ends peacefully.

Best case Scenario?
Rush Lim-Blah names him as a national hero.

So, he's a conspiracy theorist, libertarian, bug implanted ex-soldier. I haven't heard anything about the guy from CNN besides that there's a hostage situation involving a possible bomb and 2 hostages have been released so far. The rest they're stating is unconfirmed.

Update: While I was typing CNN updated to 3 hostages released, a woman is reportedly still a hostage. They're negotiating with him through cell contact. There's not much known about his motives.

This is an extremely weird event. In my opinion, also very questionable.

It is possible this is some crazy guy who wants to talk to Hillary for whatever reason; anything from getting her to do something when she is elected, or about some bad thing the Clintons may or may not have done, as previously posted.

Another possibility is this person was put there by someone, CIA, whoever, to show the "threat of home grown terrorism" and the importance of preemptive striking domestically and more phone tapping and getting people to narc on their neighbors for any kind of suspicious behavior. There is no doubt in my mind that this even will be used to push the agenda of domestic spying and the police state. He may be completely unaffiliated with Clinton; therefore it will scare her into accepting domestic spying, or he may even be affiliated with her somehow, as with all the plants they put in debates and press conferences.

The question is: is this guy acting solely on his own accord? Or is there any kind of conspiracy?

The live police press conference so far is NOT releasing any information on the background of the individual. No specifics on danger, bomb viability, names, number of hostages, absolutely nothing.

They're following up on a lot of active leads, they're calling it a fluid investigation. Probably why they're declining to answer any of the information specific questions.

I'm wondering if this is really just a plant by the Clinton campaign. Get some sympathy votes, show that they can deal with tough situations, and put the libertarian conspiracy theorists in a bad light. Assuming that's true I'd imagine they told the guy that he'd be pardoned once Senator Clinton becomes the president. This could lead to a whole new headline, "President Clinton Forgives Hostage Taker" or something along those lines.

I heard it was a Ron Paul supporter [Clearly a joke]

They were wrong earlier. Another hostage was just brought out.

Foster's Daily Democrat has learned the suspect who took hostages at the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign headquarters is Leeland Eisenberg of Somersworth, who is well known to police in Rochester.

Eisenberg took over the office at around 12:45 p.m. today.

Eisenberg is described as being in his 40s with salt and pepper hair.

Eisenberg has a history of mental illness. He reportedly told his stepson to watch the news today.

High ranking officials with the Clinton campaign told WMUR that two male campaign workers remained inside with the suspect.

Odd! The mans son says his name is Troy Stanley

The way this event has unfolded I wouldn't be surprised that they are still wrong.

FNC was reporting one more in the building with the hostage taker (who they are saying is Stanley), the police wouldn't give any names out at the briefing.

They now say that Stanley was not taking his prescription meds, (to include lithium), and was a paranoid-schizophrenic ?

Also the guy was living in the woods in the recent weeks.....

This is definitely weird, weird, weird..... least we will have the whole history of this weird event in this thread.

The hostage who was just released, on camera, was a woman or a man in drag? That whole report appears wrong.

Fox has been interviewing their primary sources live on the air all day. I'm going with their version for the moment based on that.

These events always smell fishy.

I always ask myself "how could problem-reaction-solution work in favor of the elitists in this situation?"

I believe NOTHING on the news anymore.

I think back to when I esteemed Bush & Co., and believed all the lies we were fed. Even then I couldn't get rid of the doubt. Something always felt wrong about what beliefs I thought I was committed to.

Trust your gut. We all sense what's truly going on in the world, no amount of lies is going to take away from that. They can't hide truth. Best they can do is misinform.

Now they don't seem to know who is in there????????? That means that kids Father may still be in the woods. But why did he call and tell him to watch TV. Maybe two Nut's got together in the same bowl.

Another hostage released, the fifth one so far....

And FNC is showing a man down in the street with the SWAT team surrounding the man.

It's over. It was resolved peacefully, he walked out with his hands up.

Any bets on how long before conspiracy theorists are put on the terror watch list?

It's a shame that this had to happen in the first place, however it is always good to see a non-violent resolution. Hopefully whatever issue this man had can be resolved eventually, hopefully he'll get whatever help he needs.

The cops seemed really gentle and polite...I suppose that we don't need to be concerned about marshall law after all.

Good catch Jack. I even made a thread about it, not knowing that you had made this one. I searched for it, but didn't see it. Figuring that no one had reported it, I threw a post up. Thankfully, the mods closed it.

I'd just like to add that I think that the timing of such an event is a little suspect, in more ways than are obvious on the front end.

First off, Hillary is on the decline in the public polls. This puts her at a disadvantage going into the primaries next year. True, it's just under a year away, but any decline at all, at any time, could mark the end of a campaign. This event could bolster support to her cause, since some would feel sympathetic towards her for having undergone something so traumatic.

Secondly, this would be a very opportune move for the Clinton Campaign to pull off, since it would generate a huge surge of interest in Clinton and her ideologies. One can only hope that this isn't the case, but one also must seriously wonder, with all of the political shenanigans that are plaguing the race to the White House, if something like this could possibly happen.

Looks like we'll just have to wait and see.
