Ehrie and others mentioned the homemade bomb along with new details about the investigation into both the shooters and the incidents that led...

    A wave of bomb threats were reported Thursday against businesses, schools, hospitals and other places across the country — causing panic and evacuations, although all appeared to be hoaxes.

As always, we encourage the public to remain vigilant and to promptly report suspicious activities which could represent a threat to public safety." Authorities in New York...

    Just in time for Halloween comes a former male stripper, who drove a van with Trump stickers plastered all over it, being charged with sending pipe bombs to top Democratic leaders, a journalist and at least one celebrity, all of whom have been vocal critics of President Trump. The New York Post headline was the cleverest: "Caught Red Hatted: Steroid-abusing Florida stripper driving Trump van is charged with Dem bomb spree." The Post reported that the accused, Cesar Sayoc Jr., was said to be lost and a "sick individual" who is estranged from his family, but eventually "found a father"...

    Wrapping up a week of some tragic and absurd news stories it was easy to see the knives coming out. Two national horrors in back to back succession left many asking for answers—as is almost always the case. Two mentally disturbed individuals—one a Trump “supporter” (though his life demonstrated values far different from his social media,) the other an avowed hater of the President. Their support or hate of this President or the previous, or the next ten of course does not matter. The media will nevertheless blame all of it on a Republican President that most of theirs didn’t...

    Authorities are trying to track down a package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden because it bears similarities to explosive devices addressed to other prominent Democratic officials on Wednesday, CNN reported.
