Peak hysteria may very well be on the horizon for those of us living here in the United States.
Amid rising tensions and the proclivity of the radical left, we have been witness to a number of ugly political scenes during this still-new Trump Era. Kathy Griffin likely set the entire avalanche in motion with her own grotesque display, followed shortly by the GOP baseball shooting carried out by an avowed leftist who once worked for the Bernie Sanders campaign.
Since then, the deluge of divisive and disgusting actions has been nearly never-ending, escalating ever so profoundly in recent months.
The latest wild attack on our government comes to us from the Pentagon, where a rare and somewhat mythical chemical weapon has been detected.
Two pieces of mail delivered to the Pentagon mail facility on Monday have initially tested positive for ricin, according to a US defense official.
The two suspicious envelopes were addressed to Secretary of Defense James Mattis and to Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral John Richardson, the official told CNN.The mail facility is in a separate building on the grounds of the Pentagon and the piece of mail which tested positive never entered the Pentagon building.All US Postal Service mail received at the Pentagon mail screening facility on Monday is currently under quarantine and poses no threat to Pentagon personnel, according to Pentagon spokesperson Col. Rob Manning.“On Monday, the Pentagon Force Protection Agency detected a suspicious substance during mail screening at the Pentagon’s remote screening facility,” Manning said in a statement.
“The envelopes were taken by the FBI this morning for further analysis,” Manning added.
