-Lurid Crime Tales-
Texas Governor Abbott Received Explosive Package. He Escaped Death Because He Opened It The Wrong Way.
[DAILYWIRE] In October 2016, a Texas woman sent packages laden with explosives to Governor Greg Abbott, President Barack Obama
teachable moment...
and Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin. The only reason Abbott was not either severely burned or killed was that he did not open the package as designed.

According to court documents, Julia Poff, 46, was reportedly angry at Abbott because she had not received support from her ex-husband. The package to Obama was detected in screening and rendered safe. The package to Colvin was reportedly motivated by the fact that Poff had applied for Social Security benefits and been denied.

Poff tried to learn the identity of witnesses talking to the FBI and the grand jury, asking her friends not to talk to the FBI. She had been fired from her job at a law firm because she had stolen money from a client.

The court documents stated Poff had been evicted seven times for non-payment of rent, leaving the premises in disrepair with actions including pouring concrete in drains, stuffing potatoes in toilets, and dogs locked in for a week left to defecate and urinate.

The court said that because the evidence against Poff was so strong, it enhanced the risk of Poff fleeing; it also said she represented a safety risk to the community.

Poff was charged last week with Injurious Articles as Nonmailable and Transportation of Explosives with the Intent to Kill and Injure.

#1  October of 2016. One might think that an attempt to blow up the governor of Texas was a newsworthy event. Apparently not, if we are only hearing about it now.

#2  Are packages to Obama's new house screened?

#3  Yeah. Dope goes in one pile and everything else goes in the trash.

#4  It would seem he opened it the right way. To have opened it the 'other way' would have lead to death or dismemberment.

Why is Joe Biden not more well known as a creepy pedo pervert? Video shows him groping and stroking children.
Ugh. "No dates until you're 30"

In other words:

"The first thing you make me think of is sex, and I'm saying this out loud in the hopes that it makes it less apparent"

Yeah, creepy first words to say to a kid. If Joe Biden did and said things like this to your kid, what would you do?

McCain's Walking Boot Swaps Sides Two Weeks After Treatment For Torn Achilles Tendon
[Gateway Pundit] On November 6th, POLITICO reported Senator John McCain received treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center after injuring his Achilles tendon.

"Senator McCain was treated at Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend for a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, as well as for other normal and non-life-threatening side effects of cancer therapy. Senator McCain has returned to work in the Senate and will be wearing a walking boot until his injured tendon is fully healed," the Senator’s office said in a statement.

"I can’t tell you how much I hate wearing this boot!," tweeted McCain showing off his boot on right foot.
