It appears more and more likely that Florida is the source of these devices. 

Courtesy of CBS News:

A suspicious package addressed to Democratic Sen. Cory Booker has been recovered in Florida, the FBI said Friday morning. The FBI said the package was similar to 10 other packages sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump.

In New York, police were responding to a scene of another suspicious package in midtown Manhattan. Sources told CBS News that package was addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

These two targets are also coincidentally on Trump’s enemies list. 

It is getting harder and harder to entertain the idea that this person is not some homicidal Trumpster, who believes he is doing his idol’s bidding. 

And what is the Donald doing to ratchet down the rhetoric? 

Not a damn thing.


Well, I guess CNN can expect to receive more mail bombs.

Update: There is now a suspect in custody.

Courtesy of New York Post:

A Florida man has been arrested in connection with the series of mail bombs sent this week, according to a report Friday.

The suspect is in federal custody for sending at least 12 suspicious packages containing what appears to be pipe bombs to high-level Democrats and critics of President Trump, CNN reported.

Hopefully, this means this whole thing is at an end and we will finally get some answers. 

Update 2: Here is a picture of the suspect’s vehicle. 

As you can see it is covered with pictures of Donald Trump.

So I guess we can stop tiptoeing around the obvious. 

Update 3: The suspect’s name is Cesar Sayoc, a white male in his 50’s, and yes according to voter records he is indeed a Republican.

Well, I guess the Right Wing media has egg on their face yet again.

    Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!

    “Having a fake bomb addressed to you is the new Democrat status symbol,” Milloy tweeted. “Did Spartacus send this to himself?”

    CONservatives have mocked Booker as “Spartacus” after the New Jersey Democrat referred during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings to the Roman gladiator who led a slave revolt.

    Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, “it’s just not Presidential!”
    11:14 PM – Oct 25, 2018

    While the president whines about how this is impacting his party’s chances in November, he has still shown no genuine public concern for the former presidents, high-ranking officials and members of the press who literally had their lives targeted this week.

    12?

    He then complained that his Twitter follower account was dwindling before floating a conspiracy theory about the mail bombs, shortly after two more were intercepted on their way to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and former director of national intelligence James Clapper.

    Trump’s over here coming out harder against Twitter for removing a bunch of automated bot/zombie accounts from his follow list than he came out against the person sending bombs all over the country to his political enemies

    trump crying about losing twitter followers and calling the bombs false flags in the span of two hours is top tier boomer right winger

    Trump has zero concern for targets of bombings. He only cares about his base. The rest of us are expendable. Show trump you won’t be ignored. VOTE!!

    Let’s be very clear about what this tweet is:@POTUS just signaled an endorsement of the baseless false flag theories being spread by right-wing media, framing terrorism as a midterm distraction

    This is his most depraved display of party over country

    “Bomb $TUFF happens” … there really is no fucking bottom here.

    The suspect was arrested in Plantation, Florida. He has a criminal record, and ties to New York.

    At least 12 suspicious packages containing explosive devices, and some containing additional white powder, have been discovered since Monday. Two more packages were found earlier today.”

      “Investigators used forensic evidence to trace Sayoc to a mail processing facility in Plantation, and he was arrested at a nearby AutoZone.

      Video recorded by media outlets showed his white van covered with photos of Trump and other right-wing paraphernalia.

      Other stickers showed prominent liberals with bullseyes over them, and a sticker that says, “CNN sucks.”

      Sayoc, who is originally from New Jersey, has a lengthy criminal record dating back at least 20 years, including arrests for terroristic threats against judges.”

    CBC reported that Kamala Harris may have been sent a bomb.

    I expect others Democrats on the judicial committee are also targets.

    Trump has a rally in SC today or tomorrow, i expect more chanting lock her up and applause for the bomber.

    “In a statement to Politico Florida correspondent Marc Caputo, however, tribal spokesman Gary Bitner said “there’s no record of him being a member of the Tribe.”

    “He’s not a member of the Seminole Tribe, has never been a member of the Seminole Tribe,” the statement read.

    The tribe acknowledged that it’s “difficult” to know for sure whether the suspect was a member because he “has used so many names,” but added that he never worked for the tribe as well — another of Sayoc’s claims.

    Along with claiming to work for the Seminoles, Sayoc also owned or managed a company called Native American Catering.”

      From AP story
      ====================
      “More recently, Sayoc described himself on social media as being affiliated with the Seminole Warriors boxing club.

      However, his cousin said Sayoc’s mother was Italian and his biological father was Filipino, and his parents separated when he was a young boy. Altieri said the only connection to Native Americans was that Sayoc a decade and a half ago had dated a woman in Minnesota who was a member of a tribe.

      “That might be the only connection I can think of,” Altieri said.

      Gary Bitner, a spokesman for the Seminole Tribe of Florida, said there is no evidence to show that Sayoc worked for the tribe or was a tribal member.”

      “Bomb package just discovered at Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Center in lower Manhattan.
      Cowards.
      There are at least 66 million of us (and millions more come Nov. 6). That’s a lot of flag stamps and manilla envelopes. Turn yourself in.
      And Trump — you know EXACTLY what you’re doing when you talk the way you talk and threaten repercussions against the media and violence against your opponents and, in your most infamous act of hate, your shout-out to your “Second Amendment people” to take action against Hillary — “you know what to do.” At 7:18am this morning, just 30 minutes after the news broke of the bomb at Robert De Niro’s offices, you tweeted out your latest threat to the media, blaming them for bringing on this moment of domestic terrorism. You are sick. But don’t worry. A nonviolent, democracy-based cure for your vile behavior is coming in 12 days.”

    This MAGA terrorist is a trump kind of guy !! FORMER MALE STRIPPER
    ============================
    Bomb suspect described as ‘loner’ with long arrest record
    By MICHAEL BIESECKER and STEPHEN BRAUN – The Associated Press

    Cesar Sayoc is an amateur body builder and former male stripper, a loner with a long arrest record who showed little interest in politics until Donald Trump came along.

    On Friday, he was identified by authorities as the Florida man who put pipe bombs in small manila envelopes, affixed six stamps and sent them to some of Trump’s most prominent critics.

    Records show Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, has a history of financial problems and extensive record of past arrests, including a stint served on probation for making a bomb threat. He was born in New York City and attended college in North Carolina before moving to the Miami suburbs in the late 1980s.

    Florida voter records show he first registered in March 2016 as a Republican and cast a ballot in that November’s heated presidential election. Sayoc’s social media accounts are peppered with memes supporting Trump, denigrating Democrats, and promoting conspiracy theories about George Soros, the billionaire political donor who was the first targeted this week by a package bomb.

    Sayoc has also tweeted and posted on Facebook videos that appear to show him at Trump rallies……..

    Authorities had a suspect in custody on Friday for the spate of recent parcel bombs sent to prominent Democrats, CNN and other frequent targets of Trump’s scorn. Nonetheless, reports continued to roll in of additional potentially dangerous mailings.”<Rawstory

    Still waiting for packages addressed to Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and James Comey to arrive.

    And surprise, surprise, surprise, it’s a TRUMPSTER with pro Trump/Pence and anti-Democrats/Media stickers plastered all over it. Hillary photo with a red target painted over it.

    Dumbass left fingerprints and DNA on the bombs (which did contain potentially dangerous components) that he was too incompetent to assemble so they worked. He has a criminal record so his fingerprints and DNA were in the system.

    I want all of the right wing nutjobs that were pushing their paranoid false flag propaganda to be repeatedly and loudly slapped upside the head for being TIN FOIL BEANIE CONSPIRACY WACKOS. The Tin Foil Brigade needs to be called out everytime they call a horse a zebra, everytime they twist reality into their right wing fairy tale.

    Did anyone doubt that when they finally found this DOMESTIC TERRORIST that he would be a Trump supporter?

    And Trump couldn’t even last 24 hours before he started his hate rhetoric again. He’s already on the attack.

    Now, will the meda finally start fighting back? Will they call a LIE a LIE and a racist a racist? Enough of trying to portray this demented dotard as presidential. There is nothing presidential about this moron. Every time he attacks anyone, suggests violence against anyone, says anything to undermine our democracy or the institutions and organizations that the media needs to call him out on it. They need to hold his feet to the fire. So far only our late night comedians are doing so. That is inexcuseable. Our media needs to start DOING THEIR JOBS. It is partly their fault we have this fool occupying the Oval Office. They need to step up, admit responsibility and begin to repair the damage they have done. Exposing Trump EVERY TIME is a start. They must not normalize what he is doing. They must do the exact opposite.
