Tin foil hat time: They mailed Ricin to themselves to implicate "Antifa" and to help push the sedition charges on protestors.

There's no indication that picture in TFA is what was recently mailed and intercepted.

That's way too many people with access to ricin.

From Canada? Thanks for trying, cuz.

Better luck next time.
 
2020-09-19 4:42:20 PM  
Yeah, I dunno.  First thing I thought when I heard of this was...  "Nope.  Dotard had someone do it to garner sympathy voters".

Ricin?  How about something less obvious?  Colorless, odorless, invisible, etcetc

I AM NOT ADVOCATING FOR ANYONE TO MAIL ANYTHING DEADLY TO THE W.H.

Agreed.
News organizations use old photos all the time with current stories.
 
2020-09-19 5:03:58 PM  
That is not ricin.
 
2020-09-19 5:21:42 PM  
If ingested, it causes nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding of the stomach and intestines, followed by failure of the liver, spleen and kidneys, and death by collapse of the circulatory system.

I get the same symptoms when I hear Trump give a speech.

That picture and one of castor beans growing are watermarked DOJ, others Getty.

Seems DOJ provided those pics.

A US law enforcement official told CNN that investigators are looking into the possibility the ricin package sent to Trump came from Canada.

I know how this turns out.

They'll use this as an excuse to halt all mail until after the election.

Honestly, wouldn't be much of a threat. Does Trump look like he's ever eaten a vegetable?
 
2020-09-19 5:54:54 PM  
Looks like another random flying monkey stopped taking his meds. A lot of them find out the hard way just how effective law enforcement can be when they -really- want to find you.

Castor beans aren't used to make hamberders or Diet Coke.

If only there were large machines that sorted mail, equipped with biosensors after 2001 that could have somehow picked this up long before it made it anywhere near the President.

I too was wondering what happened to the ricin cigarette.  That was a long wait for the reveal!
 
2020-09-19 6:07:50 PM  
The fact it happened this late and that it was intercepted makes me think we are looking at a false flag.
 
2020-09-19 6:08:53 PM  
From Canada? Has anyone talked to Ted Cruz?

Well this certainly won't be used as an emergency situation to further fark up postal service support for the November election. Nossir, that cannot happen.

/it already happened, didn't it?
 
2020-09-19 6:13:50 PM  
Look, it's real simple, if you want this President to consume something, it must be in the correct form factor:  cheeseburger, fried chicken, adderall, or 14 yr old blond girl.
