The office of Representative Anthony Weiner received a letter that "could be interpreted as threatening," the FBI said on Thursday, and local media reported the letter contained an unidentified white powder.

Authorities were responding to the office of the Democratic Congressman in the New York City borough of Queens, and no other details were immediately available, said FBI spokesman Richard Kolko.

The stories just keep coming about bad things happening to people who voted for this. It makes me wonder if this is a highly organized and planned series of actions against these congressmen. There are many others I still haven't read yet. I wonder how far this will go and who is behind it. I also heard of a republican congressman's windows being shot out at his home.

I'm also wondering if this isn't just a bunch of G-Man BS as well. This is the same sort of thing that went down when the Patriot Act was passed and we had all of those packages showing up with "mysterious" powders. Eh, this is fear-mongering non-sense from both sides.

Who really knows? This time it may be different. Windows were shot through, a coffin was put on REP. Carnahan's lawn. There was a threat of snipers in place. It may be different. It seems different. The only people this would make fearful are other members of congress.

and the wiki:


The 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States, also known as Amerithrax from its Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) case name, occurred over the course of several weeks beginning on September 18, 2001, only a few days after the September 11 attacks. Letters containing anthrax spores were mailed to several news media offices and two Democratic U.S. Senators, killing five people and infecting 17 others. (A 2004 study however, has shown that the total number of harmed people should be raised to 68 [1].) The primary suspect was not publicly identified until 2008.

In mid-2008, the FBI narrowed its focus to Bruce Edwards Ivins, a scientist who worked at the government's biodefense labs at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland. Ivins was told of the impending prosecution and on July 27 committed suicide, by an overdose of acetaminophen.[2]

On August 6, 2008, federal prosecutors declared Ivins to be the sole culprit of the crime.[3] Two days later, Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Rush Holt called for hearings into the DOJ and FBI's handling of the investigation.[4][5]

I have heard of retaliations for passing healthcare on at least 5 congressmen already. I find it hard to believe that at least some of the events unfolding were not planned and coordinated by some group of angry American citizens who did not want this.

Funny how Republicans turn into the very thing they fought so hard to fear-monger about while they were in power now that they aren't getting their way - terrorists. Maybe two sides of the same coin? Amusing to watch from afar anyway, I think I'll stay up here where it's safe.

What proof do you have that it's Republicans that are creating this havoc? Tyranny knows no party, my friend. Like I said, I really think that it's a bunch of people trying to make it "look good". Until I see definitive proof that it's democrat or republican, I will continue to think that it's the real enemy: NWO.
