Letters uncovered from the Nashville bomber reveal belief in aliens and lizard people
[PostMillennial] A man who knew Nashville bomber Anthony Warner received mail from Warner on New Years day containing a letter of bizarre ramblings.

A packaged mailed to an acquaintance of Warner was postmarked Dec. 23. Warner mailed similar packages to other individuals as well, according to sources who spoke to News Channel 5 Nashville.

The package containing nine written pages and two Samsung thumb drives was turned over to the FBI.

"Hey Dude," the letter starts, "You will never believe what I found in the park."

"The knowledge I have gained is immeasurable. I now understand everything, and I mean everything from who/what we really are, to what the known universe really is," it continues.

The letter contained a plethora of conspiracy theory references, and other ramblings, including a doomsday prophecy that was supposed to have taken place in September of 2011, involving alien attacks.

"The moon landing and 9-11 have so many anomalies they are hard to count," one section read.

The writings also reportedly included references to reptilian races that were supposed to be controlling the planet.

"They put a switch into the human brain so they could walk among us and appear human," Warner wrote in one section.

The letter was reportedly signed "Julio," the name of Warner's dog and a name Warner's acquaintance says he often used in emails, according to News Channel 5 Nashville.

Investigators say nothing in the writings indicates any motive or references his bombing on Christmas morning in Nashville.
It does suggest he was not well connected to reality, though.

CNN's Jake Tapper interrupts Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine during voter security conversation, says concerns due to President Trump's lies

[Cleveland.com] Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and CNN’s Jake Tapper got into a momentarily tense exchange Sunday morning while discussing national voter security.

DeWine appeared on Tapper’s "State of the Union" program and talked about several topics, including Ohio’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout. The governor was remarking on concerns about voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, of which — contrary to what President Trump has repeatedly pushed — there is no proof of widespread issues.

"Are there some problems in the system as far as potential fraud or fraud that occurred? Yes, but... we have not seen anything that rises to the level that would have changed the outcome of the election," DeWine said, to start.
Not in Ohio, perhaps, but Ohio has been cleaning up voter issues. Some other states have not been as aggressive.
"I think [Ohio GOP] Senator Portman has a good proposal. And that proposal is to get two very distinguished people in this country, Democrat and Republican, have a commission, and to take a hard look at voter security. We have a lot of people in this country who are very concerned about it," DeWine continued.

[aka SICKO]
then interjected, saying, "Because they have been lied to, Governor. They have been lied to by President Trump for weeks."

"No, no, no. Jake, Jake, hold on. Jake, time-out a minute," DeWine said, asking Tapper to look at "the big picture" before continuing his support for Portman's voter security commission idea.

"With changes in technology, potential hacking, all of these things, we need to have a commission, as Senator Portman says, that takes a long look at this," DeWine said. "[It's] not something you can do in 10 days, but to take a look at this."

Congress is set to certify President-elect Joe Biden's presidential victory Wednesday, though a group of GOP senators has said they intend to object the Electoral College results.

#1  Tapper has to maintain the party line.

However, if they really want to calm the brewing storm, they should have a real discussion and come up with ways to rebuild confidence in elections. Maybe bring our system up to international standards, for a start.

Still Think Time Travel Is SciFi?
[CFP] "...The entire East Side of New York City is in a state of uproar. Mobs of vast size are organizing under the lead of anarchists and socialists, and threaten to plunder and despoil the houses of the rich who have wronged and oppressed them for so many years."
___ From The Last President, 1896

1900, or The Last President, by INGERSOLL LOCKWOOD, is a surrealistic 1896 novel, where Americans are protesting a corrupt election process while the president's hometown of New York City is fearing the collapse of the republic after the transition of presidential power. During 2017, this book, as well as Lockwood's two childrens books, The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulger (1890) and Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey (1893), drew attention due to its uncanny connections with President Trump and his family.

Top US Official Says 'Growing Body Of Evidence' Shows COVID-19 Leaked From Chinese Lab
[ZH] The most 'credible' theory about the origin of COVID-19 is that it escaped from a Chinese laboratory, according to US National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger, who made the comment during a Zoom meeting with UK officials.

"There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus," said Pottinger, referring to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to the Daily Mail, which notes that 'even China's leaders openly admit their previous claims that the virus originated in a Wuhan market are false.'

#1  ...clearing out store shelves by government approved looters (those only taking 'x' amount of dollars in value) also hits the tax revenue. They didn't consider that impact either.
