Meanwhile, Utah man charged for sending deadly toxin to President Trump, threatening admin officials

October 25, 2018 | Vivek Saxena

Many of the same left-wing media outlets that rushed to blame the attempted bombings this week of various Democrat political figures on President Donald Trump have been suspiciously quiet about an alleged attempt to poison the president.

Earlier this month Pentagon mail screener's discovered threatening letters addressed to President Donald Trump, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson with at least one, addressed to Trump, containing the deadly toxin ricin.

Grand jury in Utah returns seven-count indictment charging William Clyde Allen, III in ricin case @FBISaltLakeCity @SecretService @USPISpressroom

Allen Charged In Seven-Count Federal Indictment With Threat To Use A Biological Toxin As A Weapon

Federal authorities arrested Utah man William Clyde Allen III, a Navy veteran, on Oct. 3 and formally indicted him weeks later on Oct. 18 for having “knowingly threatened to use a biological agent and toxin, specifically ricin, as a weapon.”

According to the DOJ:

The indictment alleges the defendant sent a letter to the President of the United States with the language “Jack and the Missile Bean Stock Powder” and containing castor bean material.

Five counts of the indictment charge Allen with mailing threatening communications to an officer or an employee of the United States, including Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis; Admiral John M. Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations; FBI Director Christopher A. Wray; CIA Director Gina Haspel; and Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson.

Ricin naturally exists in, and may be extracted from, the seeds of the castor bean. The extraction of ricin from these seeds does not require technical expertise. Small doses of ricin are lethal to human beings if ingested, inhaled, or injected.

As of Oct. 25, coverage by the mainstream media of Allen’s actions remained either limited or outright nonexistent. Conspicuously absent were any lengthy op-eds condemning Democrats for having provoked him with their pro-harassment, pro-mob rhetoric against the Trump administration.

Some would argue that this is only fair, since the actions of one deranged man should not be used to impugn an entire group of people. But others have noted that it’s highly hypocritical given how differently the media have acted this week.

In response to the attempted bombings of left-wing billionaire George Soros, former President Barack Hussein Obama, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former CIA Director John O. Brennan, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Rep. Maxine Waters, the media have predictably blamed Trump.

“[T]he rhetoric that comes out of that White House is not helpful at all. There’s collateral damage, and it has got to stop. And it’s getting worse. And I blame the rhetoric out of that building, out of the White House. It comes from the top, the president of the United States,” CNN White House correspondent April Ryan bluntly opined Wednesday evening.

She based her assertion on the unproven, conspiratorial theory that the attempted bombings had been perpetrated by a conservative supporter of the president. No evidence exists to prove this, yet numerous other media figures have echoed this exact sentiment.

According to social media users, the hypocrisy is astounding:

Suspicious packages? Death threats? Ricin? Assassination attempts? Assault?

It has happened to Trump. And to his son and daughter-in-law. To Scalise. To Rand Paul.

Where have you been? Watching cnn?

Yeah, your hypocrisy jumped out.

Explain to me how it is GOP hypocrisy when we have absolutely no clue who sent the packages? It's Democrat hypocrisy cuz you guys didn't give a **** about the ricin letters or the death threats against sitting senators or the threats against their children over the Kavanaugh vote

This year Trump administration officials and congressional Republicans have faced constant harassment, vandalism, death threats and even attempted murders. Yet not once has the media media blamed these actions on the Democrats or suggested Democrats need to tone down their rhetoric.

If this doesn’t count as an example of hypocrisy, then perhaps the word “hypocrisy” simply has no meaning anymore …

Stunning hypocrisy.

My gut says this latest bomb sending spree is a coordinated effort by the fascists in the Democratic Party after their Kavanaugh coup didn't work.
No way the Right did it
The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.

Utah man charged for sending deadly toxin to President Trump
This is obviously Trump's fault.

Not an accurate representation of a white person.

The intended target isn't a democrat so it will get little to no attention.
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt
