Note the arrows (which I added.)

This package never went through the postal service; none of the stamps are canceled.

So what's going on here?  This was obviously not mailed and yet it allegedly got into the "mail stream" -- you can't just walk into a commercial office building and magically make that package appear in the mailman's delivery area.  Never mind that for "common" businesses (like the one I used to run) the mail carrier is the one who brings that stuff up to your suite -- not some building employee -- because it is not at all uncommon for one or more mail pieces to require a signature or have some other form of supervised delivery.

Did CNN along with these other alleged "destinations" intentionally perpetrate a coordinated hoax to try to claim that "someone" is "bombing" them?  Let me guess -- those alleged "bombs" are full of kitty litter!

I don't know if that's true or not -- but what I do know is that this package never went through the mail system and did not come into the building and enter the building mail stream via the USPS letter carrier.

There is no plausible explanation for how it came to be in CNN's "incoming mail" given that the stamps on the alleged "piece of mail" are not canceled.

ABC claiming they obtained a picture of the device from the bomb squad is horse-hockey. It's sitting on a regular counter. Last I recall seeing news footage of bomb squads at work, they don't 'pause for photos' before dealing with a device. They certainly don't stage it nicely so that the envelope and device are in-frame.

How much of an explosive device can you mail with six regular stamps anyway? Can't be much of one.

Karl,
we are dealing with a media that is grounded not in reality, but in the fairy tales and vision for the future that they promote. What do facts matter? With our controlled media they don't until a flimsily contrived narrative is exposed for what it is. This may be like so many hate crime charges that often unravel with a little critical examination. To borrow a phrase from a W.C. Fields movie, "There's a Ubangi in the fuel supply".
When flaws in the narrative are noted this story will disappear.

This whole thing stinks. I ship thousands of packages every year as part of my eBay business. This "thing" probably weighs at least a pound, that would require Priority Postage, even if it is 13 ounces or so that $3.00 (six Forever stamps) is still not enough postage. I'm supposed to believe that this thing was accepted by a USPS Counter clerk too? Might it look at least kinda suspicious to a Postal Clerk or Mail Delivery person? What nonsense CNN!!!

My first thought: Democrat-media false flag, like the******Dossier.

Funny how they make a stink about this, but memory hole the 'ricin' packages to Repubs... or the Repubs shot by a BernieBro.

Soros got one of these bombs hand delivered. I guess the perp brought the bomb to his house in NY. Normally packages with stamps on them have to be hand cancelled since they can not go through the machine. The postal clerk usually does it when you present the package at the USPO. I have received letters and packages with out the postage stamps being cancelled.

You are not supposed to drop packages in a mailbox. BTW, have you notice mailboxes are much harder to find. I find it interesting they used a timing device, since when you mail it standard post you don't know when the addressee will receive it. Normally, there is a switch device that activates then the parcel is opened.

This does have an odor too it, so close to an election day and the people who were targeted. Took the invasion caravan off the front page for the time being.

Also, I forgot to add ABC news described Soros as:

Quote:
A Hungarian immigrant who lived through the Nazi occupation during World War II, Soros launched his own hedge fund in 1970 and went on to become one of the most successful investors in U.S. history.


He was a NAZI sympathizer, who outed many of his own people to be sent to concentration camps. I saw somewhere else they called him a philanthropist who donated to human rights and progressive caused. Such an angel/sarc off.

So... a supposed bomb was hand delivered to somewhere. Stamps we not enough to ship it or the right kind for packages. Never mind it hasn't been canceled. Them the bomb squad opened it up and snapped pictures which were then posted everywhere.

If this isn't a false flag, that makes it worse. If it was a false flag, then the mid term internal polling must be pretty horrible

The stamps MIGHT have CONCEIVABLY been sufficient, IF the mass was under 13oz or so.

BUT, it was non-machinable so it had to be hand-processed. And I'm supposed to believe that (1) MULTIPLE instances were NOT canceled despite NOT being machinable and thus being kicked out for manual processing and (2) they were ALL delivered on the same day?

Uh, no. That's total bull****. Never mind that while you can stuff a package in a PERSON'S mailbox (high risk if the person is high profile, as they PROBABLY have a camera pointed at that mailbox!) you CAN.

In a COMMERCIAL building no ****ing chance. Even in the 1990s when I ran a firm in TWO of them -- no ****ing way. In the "low rise and small" building the postman DIRECTLY brought the mail up and in the high-rise he did too -- and where they loaded was quite-secure for damn good reason. We frequently got well north of a hundred pieces of mail a DAY at MCSNet -- checks and order forms from customers, mostly, but also invoices and such aimed at us for things we had purchased. During biz hours the DOCKMASTER was down there at the loading dock and NOBODY pulled ANY sort of **** on him. AFTER hours you had security watching on CCTV from their office and if you showed up down there without them knowing who you were and why (assuming you could get in there in the first place -- not trivial unless you had a prox card that would work there) they had people down there in SECONDS.

Most corporations have all sorts of sensitive stuff flying around, whether it be proposals, invoices or CHECKS -- and the buildings are VERY, VERY sensitive to that. That's beyond what happens if you have your OWN security and are big enough to have your own mail room! In that case NOBODY delivers ANYTHING to the mail room EXCEPT the mail carrier. Ever. Period. And he's wearing a USPS uniform.

And all this is BEFORE 9/11. NOW? They're WAY more sensitive to it than they used to be. NOW showing up where you're not supposed to be is likely to lead to you coming around a corner to meeting a cop with his gun out.

To a commercial building with no cancels on the stamps? No ****ing way. Maybe one if the PO got lazy, but MULTIPLE instances? No. Absolutely, positively NO.

My wife is a postal worker.

The post office is phasing out postmarking letters, generally. Stamps with dot matrix codes on them are scanned at sorting and forwarding locations as they pass through the mailstream, and the postal service will know if the same stamp gets used twice. They are "electronically cancelled".

These were standard, not-bar-coded or dot-matrix-coded stamps. Further these were all non-machinable and thus both subject to surcharge for that (which is quite material) AND hand-canceled.
