MAGA bombs consisted of P.V.C. tubing & used a digital clock as a possible trigger device; pyrotechnic powder was the explosive, and in order to keep it light weight, glass was used for shrapne

A wave of misinformation about the migrant caravan is spreading on social media

BREAKING: New home sales tumble 5.5% in September

“Mob rule” “Don’t give these people power” “Punish them”

"Mr. Trump’s aides have repeatedly warned him that his cellphone calls are not secure, and they have told him that Russian spies are routinely eavesdropping on the calls, as well. But aides say the voluble president … has still refused to give up his iPhones."

Just now at Wisconsin #MAGA rally, the crowd erupted in “LOCK HER UP” chants—the same day a suspicious device was sent to @HillaryClinton and @realDonaldTrump called for UNITY.

Here is @tedcruz blaming the recent pipe-bomb attacks on Democrats on...Democrats.

This is Trump’s Republican Party, folks. Hours after the attempted assasination of Hillary Clinton, we’re back to this. They can’t take even a half day off.

Suspicious Devices Sent To

BREAKING: Stocks plunge again, wiping out gains for the year; technology swoon pulls Nasdaq 12 percent below August peak.

Packages to Soros, Obamas, Clintons, Brennan c/o CNN, Holder -- these devices, per law enforcement sources, were rudimentary but functional. Meaning the intent here was mass murder.

Trump backers who have suggested the bombs are a liberal hoax

If you have info about these packages, contact the #FBI tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI or go online to If you observe any suspicious activity that requires an immediate response, please call 9-1-1 or contact your local law enforcement immediately.

The data doesn't lie: the real terrorists are exactly the people who hear @realDonaldTrump's dog whistles loud and clear

Statement by Director Wray on the FBI's Investigation of Suspicious Packages.

“Don’t hurt them, but if you do I’ll defend you in court” - Donald Trump

There's a lot we don't know about these packages, but we do know what all the targets had in common: They have all been criticized mercilessly by right-wing outlets...

As CNN evacuates, ‘preprogrammed’ Trump campaign email blasts network

"There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the W.H. about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media," CNN president Jeff Zucker said. "The President, and especially the W.H. press secretary, should understand their words matter."

Violence is never OK. Reports of bombs sent to the homes of Obama, Clinton, and Soros are deeply, deeply disturbing. America is better than this. Political disagreements are fine, even healthy, but we should always be civil and respect each other’s humanity. — Ted Cruz

Mr Cambridge Analytica himself ....

Today they tried to murder two Presidents as well as public servants and journalists. Make no mistake, these terrorists were encouraged and emboldened by the hate speech of Donald Trump. If you can’t see the clear menace of this man’s influence by now then you are a part of it.

I am truly grateful for the support of all who have reached out to inquire about the safety of my family after the attempted bomb attack. Here’s my op-ed in the @NYtimes about the incident and what is happening to politics in America today.

BREAKING: Justice Department asks Supreme Court to rule businesses can discriminate against workers based on their sexual orientation, gender identity without violating federal law

President Trump's words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.

JUST NOW: @realDonaldTrump has nothing to say as several reporters (myself included) ask him if he’ll tone down his rhetoric and stop attacking journalists and political opponents.

NEWS: Law enforcement sources tell @ABCNews that at least one suspected device has been intercepted at a Congressional mail sorting facility in Maryland. Capitol Hill Police bomb techs are on the scene

NEW: The San Diego Tribune building, where California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris has an office, is currently being evacuated bc of a suspicious package outside, per Tribune's Kate Morrissey

Hillary Clinton addresses suspicious package sent to her home: "We are fine thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it made its way to our home. Everyday we are grateful to their service"

Dear #MAGAbomber, Great work. You successfully got the midterms and Khashoggi out of the news cycle.

The View’s Meghan McCain compares bombs targeting Dems to Republicans getting ‘heckled at restaurants’

#BREAKING: Sunrise Police Department confirms an office building has been evacuated due to suspicious package in the mail. It’s the same building where the office of U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is located. @CBS4Ted is live at noon.

NEW : #CNN reporting that the suspicious package, said to be a "pipe bomb," was addressed to former #CIA director @JohnBrennan... he is a contributor for NBC/MSNBC.. is not employed at CNN

When reporting on bombs being sent to prominent Democrats and a major news network, every single report has a moral obligation to acknowledge the sustained smear campaign of each victim conducted by one of the country's most influential Republicans.

Trump has spoken three times in two years about bein’ “President for life.” Take that little tidbit into the votin’ booth with you.

Everyone at CNN NY being evacuated. Swarms of NYPD outside — I wasn’t allowed to grab a coat or any of my belongings — told to immediately go to staircase

Bombs sent to Soros, Clinton, Obama, and now apparently CNN. Unclear who is doing this. But crazy conspiracy theories plus the serial demonization of political opposition and the media can have real consequences.

President Trump isn’t interested in solving immigration problems. Earlier this year, we offered every penny of border security $ he asked for - and he turned it down. He would rather use lies and fear to try to stir people up right before an election than protect the country.

During the debate, @BryanSteilforWI said he had a, “Zero tolerance policy,” for sexual assault. So after the debate, we asked him if he was willing to condemn @realDonaldTrump, who’s been accused of sexually violating at least 21 different women. How did he react?

"The Guard will provide air support"... AIR SUPPORT? What, do they expect CBP officers to pop smoke and call in a strike?

This 1 minute answer off the top Beto’s head, has more intelligent thought, strategy & passion than any pre-written speech Cruz or Trump has ever read (poorly) to people since their being in office.

The Murdoch stench goes from Australia to the UK all the way to the USA. Divided politics where politicians can't even publicly talk about vital issues like climate change and homelessness without some ignorant paid-off loudmouth shouting them down.

Once again, Donald Trump’s misguided foreign policy decisions are making our nation and our allies less safe while handing Vladimir Putin a PR win and helping Russia, which has long sought to be freed from the limits on nuclear weapons imposed by the INF Treaty

Sen. Mazie Hirono says that the US withdrawing from the nuclear non-proliferation treaty is a "gift to Putin. Because I think Putin would like that to happen so that he can be unfettered in his aggression."

They’re buying yachts. They’re buying jets. And they’re swearing it’s a “middle class tax cut.” It’s not. It’s a #GOPTaxScam paid for by stealing from Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Republicans are desperately trying to kill coverage for pre-existing conditions. Don't listen to what they say, watch was they're doing

Just a regular reminder that the @GOP wants to take away protections for people with pre-existing health conditions like asthma and diabetes. They voted to take away those protections last year and now are suing to do it. Just TWO WEEKS LEFT to tell your family and friends!

Jim_Jordan, my name is Janet Garrett and I am your opponent in this race.
