UPDATE: As this contrived scare unravels, Obama has given a press conference reversing earlier announcements that there were no explosives in the packages found on the planes. Obama claimed that the packages “did apparently contain explosive material,” completely contradicting earlier reports which quoted authorities as saying that both the package found in the UK and the two found in the U.S. were all duds and contained no explosive material.

A few hours ago CNN reported, “Investigators examined two UPS planes that landed at Philadelphia International Airport and another at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, said Mike Mangeot, a UPS spokesman. Authorities later gave the “all-clear” at the airport in Newark, U.S. and U.K. officials said,” and yet now CNN is running with the headline, Suspicious packages ‘contain explosive material,’ Obama says. This stinks to high heaven. Obama is directly contradicting the announcements of his own federal security apparatus.

Obama also said that the events were a scare tactic designed to shake up Americans before the elections. On this point he’s correct, but all the evidence points to his White House being behind the scare. Obama was informed last night of the events as the packages were discovered and even after it was known that the UK package contained no explosive material, he issued a full security alert anyway.


As we predicted on four separate occasions would happen, the Obama White House has deliberately contrived a fake terror scare on the eve of the mid-term elections in an effort to subdue the rampaging political appetite for anti-big government candidates that threatens to sweep aside establishment incumbents next week.

Despite the fact that the so-called suspicious package discovered on a flight in the United Kingdom tested negative for any explosive material, President Obama, after being informed of the apparent “threat” yesterday, “directed U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the Department of Homeland Security” to launch a full-scale security alert, according to a White House press release, which in turn was helpfully elevated to levels of hysteria by the corporate media today.

The scaremongering was focused around two UPS planes that landed at Philadelphia International Airport and another at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, but just like the incident in the UK, both were soon given the “all clear,” reports CNN, and no bombs were found.

Despite the fact that no explosives at all were found on any of the planes, the establishment media is still feverishly running with the story that this was a “mail bomb” plot targeting the United States and that it was run out of Yemen, which coincidentally is also the US Military-Industrial Complex’s number one target for attack.

Quite how a “mail bomb plot” can succeed without any actual bombs is something the hysterical press has failed to properly explain. Like every other single major terror scare targeting the United States that we have covered, this smacks of an engineered political ploy.

As the video at the top of this article highlights, the terror scare also arrives just days after British Airways Chairman Martin Broughton attacked US authorities for the continuation of “completely redundant” airport security checks. It also comes amidst an increasing backlash against naked body scanners.

Just as former Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge admitted that fake terror alerts were issued by the Bush administration for political gain, Obama is taking a leaf out of the Neo-Con’s playbook – and his timing couldn’t be better – just four days before the mid-term elections on Super Tuesday.

Over the last few months, on four separate occasions, we warned that the Obama White House would pull a terror stunt on the eve of the election in an effort to corral an increasingly resentful and angry electorate into acquiescence. As we reported back in July, former Clinton advisor Robert Shapiro wrote that Obama was relying on an October surprise in the form of a terror scare to rescue his presidency.

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” wrote Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

Last month we reported on how the Obama administration’s threat that a “small scale terror attack” was on the cards was just another political ploy to instill fear within Americans. In another subsequent article we again highlighted the probability of the government contriving a terror scare for political grist.

We repeated our warning about Obama seeking to exploit terror earlier this month in the aftermath of the supposed airport lobby bombing plot, which again turned out to be nothing but hot air.

We’d be loathe to forget that the media and the government have been totally discredited over and over again by their complicity in issuing phony terror alerts designed to manipulate elections and frighten the public into slavish obedience, accepting naked body scanners, an intensification of the police state and any other indignity in the name of the government protecting them from terrorists like Christmas Day bomber Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was allowed to board the airliner he tried to attack by order of the US State Department.

Within hours of this new terror scare breaking every indication, most notably the fact that Obama was informed last night and decided to go ahead with a full security alert despite the UK package being a dud, screams out that this is a contrived political stunt designed to sway the many key undecided voters in anticipation of next week’s mid-terms.

Obama is a FAKE!
October 31, 2010 3:05:44 AM

Its ludicrous to think that Obama would contrive a terror scare to "help" him and his party.

Even his huge ego couldn't possibly believe folks would vote Democrat for national security lol.

Thank you Twoboxer for putting things in the proper perspective. You put it in a way even the naive OP double ought spy can undestand. ;)

October 31, 2010 4:08:43 AM

I didn't Vote for him.
October 31, 2010 4:11:19 AM

LOL. So you are not second guessing yourself like 99.5% of those who did.
October 31, 2010 4:17:15 AM

No, Who is this guy anyway?

Bring Colin Powell or Ollie North
October 31, 2010 4:28:37 AM

I voted for the guy who said this in his consession speech when formally withdrawing from the 2008 race. Really I did and his words are quoted verbatim.

The threat to our culture comes from within. In the 1960s, there were welfare programs that created a culture of poverty in our country. Now, some people think we won that battle when we reformed welfare. But the liberals haven't given up.

At every turn, they tried to substitute government largess for individual responsibility. They fight to strip work requirements from welfare, to put more people on Medicaid, and remove more and more people from having to pay any income tax whatsoever.

Dependency is death to initiative, risk-taking and opportunity. Dependency is culture killing. It's a drug. We've got to fight it like the poison it is.

The attack on our culture is not the only a challenge that we face. We face economic competition unlike anything we have known before. China, and Asia are emerging from centuries of poverty. Their people are plentiful, innovative and ambitious.
If we don't change course, Asia or China will pass us by as the economic superpower, just as we passed England and France during the last century.

The prosperity and security of our children and grandchildren depend on us.
Our prosperity and security also depend on finally acting to become energy-secure. Oil-producing states like Russia and Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Iran are siphoning over $400 billion out of our economy. That's almost what we spent annually for our national defense.

It is past time for us to invest in energy technology: nuclear power, clean coal, liquid coal, renewable resources, energy efficiency.

Simply put, America must never be held hostage by the likes of Putin, Chavez and Ahmadinejad.

And finally, let's consider the greatest challenge facing America, and for that matter facing the entire civilized world: the threat of radical, violent jihad.

As you know, in one wing of the world of Islam there's a conviction that all governments should be destroyed and replaced by a religious caliphate. These jihadists will battle any form of democracy because to them democracy is blasphemous, because it says that citizens, not God, shape the law.

Sure, Did he ever have a real job?

The most remarkable thing about Romney's speech is that there is nothing remarkable about it.

October 31, 2010 5:08:17 AM

Well, Powell and Ollie North have no plan to run. 2012 is still a ways off. In some circles Romney is currently the front runner. Obama is a disaster for his party to this point. If He continues his far left ways and doesn't make an attempt to move to the center, He will not get the nomination of his party in 2012. Romney is my guy, but there are a couple of up and comers one of which has an impressive military career. Can think of the name right now, it evades me. If Obama continues blaming everyone but himself for the dismemberment of his party that will occur tuesday and continues on piling on the detractors from within, He is a one termer. That's already written in stone unless a miracle of sorts occurs.

Yeah, North is a great guy. I love his show.
October 31, 2010 5:23:52 AM

Petraeus 2012. Early bumper sticker plans.
October 31, 2010 5:24:33 AM

North is great - but so was Fawn Hall. Hot and a hell of a shredder, too :) 

I think the potential candidate the Dems are most afraid of - 2016 if not 2012 - is actually Marco Rubio. The surprise campaign in 2012 might well be Clinton v. Rubio.

October 31, 2010 5:24:40 AM

“We must build a better future even as we deal with the security challenges before us. That is how we'll overcome those challenges, because it's not enough to fight against a negative, like terrorism. We must focus on what inspires us, on what brings the good people of the world together. We've got to fight for the positive — for liberty, for freedom, for democracy.”

"Senator Obama, I'm not President Bush. If you want to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago."
October 31, 2010 6:41:08 AM

By way of contrast, when Obama spoke on his European tour, he introduced himself as representing America's interest in partnering in the pursuit of "Progress and Justice".

I'm old enough to recall nine previous Presidents who always spoke of America's drive for "Freedom and Prosperity".

Therein lies the difference. The "Transformation of America".
October 31, 2010 9:12:07 AM

I am not American but from my view point the Republicans are crazy and make up conspiracy theory’s to put across their distorted view of the world. The facts are truthfully described at

Obama may be guilty of many things but he is proven innocent of what this post accuses him of.
October 31, 2010 9:22:35 AM

Obama does not speak for America by a long shot. He speaks for left wing radicals. Obama doesn't speak for the majority of his party any longer. The house will fall and Pelosi will lose her job as Speaker on tuesday. The senate will be within two to four seats from falling from Obama's power what little is left of it. Obama is a one termer. His chance of getting the nominatiuon for his party in 2012 is in question. It's obvious you are a foreigner. You have no clue what you are talking about when addressing the Republican party. Quote: "the Republicans are crazy". It's you who is crazy. What country are your from?
October 31, 2010 9:47:49 AM

I am from England and from the news coverage I have seen on the internet and the television the Republican Party is coming across as being a little bit nuts and paranoid. Maybe I am getting a distorted view but as I am an unbiased observer with no vested interest in the outcome of the US election as I couldn’t care who wins perhaps my view point has some validity.
October 31, 2010 10:30:05 AM

I am from England and from the news coverage I have seen on the internet and the television the Republican Party is coming across as being a little bit nuts and paranoid.

This mindset is totallly wrong. Obama's approval rating is in the low 40's. As low as George Bush ever was. His own party is seperating from him. The election is tuesday. Obama and the democrats are going to loose on an almost inconceivable scale. The House of represenatives falls from Obama's power. As many as 60 seats will be gained by the Republican party and a majority in the House will have been attained. The House and Senate races up for election on tuesday will be won overwhelmingly by Republicans. On a scale not seen in some 75 years. Obama will hold on to senate majority by 2 to 4 seats by tuesday night's end. Calling the Republican Party 'crazy' and representing a 'conspiracy theory' is ludicrous. Clinton News Network(CNN) has such a derilict liberal bias it's really no wonder. Same with MSNBC. These liberal news conglomerations got Obama elected. The conspiracy theory insinuation regarding the Republican party is Monty Pythonish silly.

Maybe I am getting a distorted view but as I am an unbiased observer with no vested interest in the outcome of the US election as I couldn’t care who wins perhaps my view point has some validity.

Obama's administration is doing very poorly in regard to the swing voters who voted for him in 2008. One pole has more than 50% of those polled stating they would not vote for him again. Your view has no validity as far as the Republican party being a bunch of 'crazies' and 'conspiracy theorists'. That my friend is not the case. Obama's support levels are shrinking wide and far. Take a look at the results tuesday night. The Republicans will absolutely bury Obama's party. Look for that to be a strong tend in American politics leading to the 2012 elections.

On a personal level I have friends who voted for Obama. All of them are sorry they did which seems to be the norm in that regard. One has a son who served I believe two terms in Iraq and now two or three terms in Afghanistan. I know he has two Purple Hearts. My friend is busy writing letters to his State Senator questioning why this has happened his son serving multiple terms in combat. He voted for Obama because Obama promised to end the war in Iraq. But then Obama started his own little conflict in Afghanistan where He is currently calling the shots with Potreus's guidance. Anyway, on a personal level the people I come in contact with who voted for Obama two years ago would not vote for Obama again. I hope this gives a little perspective or 'inside' to what is going on in American politics. The near future looks bleak. Hopefully the learning curve through these times will be effective and get the country through in one piece. If not you Brits are welcome to San Francisco.

Edited to clean up spelling and offer Northern CA. Southern CA is the capitol of Mexico and I don't have complete authority to give it away under those circumstances.

This poll predicted the 2008 presidential election to the nth degree. The poll is excellent as far as being accurate, one of the best.

Barrack Obama's approval rating as described in the first couple of sentences is the key to the election results tuesday ight. See 'ya tuesday.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17

My ears are burning and it's a sure sign someone has been drinking the liberal koolade on this forum. You should have known better when the powerful pharmaceuticals kicked in and your mind turned to mush.

Unfortunately, what the worlds view of US politics is derived from the media, of which, many have litterally said they get a "tingle" when seeing/hearing him have litterally said they get a "tingle" when seeing/hearing him
Now, hes even losing parts of the far left wing socialst idealized media. Why some have asked, its simply because he hasnt dont enough for them, and is just another reason why America is moving way away from him
His party is as well
Very few who are running for election have run on Obama policy, and his support for those wholl take it, it almost seems its as much for him, as it is for them, or in other words, he needs to be seen as badly as those he supports need a last ditch effort, because his policies are dreadful
Make no mistake, the majority at this point is going to vote republican here
The media has tried hard to put a face on republicans as crazy, so the majority of the US is crazy, and our only hope are those that get a tingle in the legs, rising upwards, or, Obama media types
Ill take the vast majority myself
October 31, 2010 11:24:39 AM

This is very telling. From the very footholds of liberalism/socialism, the NYTimes itself

Now, whats typical here is, this has been happening for almost a year, and now, all the sudden its news at the NYTimes!!
They dont live in our world, they live in theirs, as theyre usually too busy trying to figure out whats best for us, without asking us
This is nothing but arrogance, power, control and the assumption were too stupid to help ourselves, lead ourselves and need government to make another childproof lighter, pill box or whatever seatbelt law they approve of
October 31, 2010 11:26:50 AM

JD I don't watch MSNBC since 2006. No CNN since 2004. True. My wife said yesterday maybe I should for a different perspective. I want to throw up.

Olberman was the reason I stopped watching MSNBC four years ago. The guy is a product of a sick prostitute tryst of french/german heritage resulting from the atrocities of WWII Europe. I want to puke. I can't watch. He is an ugly human being. I see 666. I wake up with nightmares of his face in the darkness. It's hell to look at him. Dana Carvey, "Could it be...Satan?"

I had heard Olberman was losing his show some months ago. I thought at the time I may try and watch MSNBC if He does.

My wife laughed when Capro told Obamam to shove it. My wife is very opened minded about politics. She is not at all like me and would never repeat me saying, 'Obama is not my president'. We may retire out of the country. I would have a beer and discuss basketball with Obama. Beyond that, our lives as Americans have little substance.

October 31, 2010 2:23:06 PM

Ok here is what we should do. We should elect some one like this:
Yes, he has no political, law,etc background but some one like this should make for quite a nice show on the Hill. :D 

Seriously, why is it that we haven't really seen any 3rd part candidate run for President in a serious manner? I think the best way to get rid of all the party differences is to create a new 3rd party to run for President.

I don't know what makes you think the OP is a republican, he's just a troll. Maybe some bias on your part, eh?

As I said earlier, no American - let alone a republican - believes that a national security incident could possibly help the democrats. And anyone who knows anything about American politics knows that.

LOL by that time Obama will have laid claim to ending the war and being THE major force in middle east politics solving the world's problems. I keep looking for the Carter era worthless Peace treaties to start floating around the air waves. None of the Carter Peace treatys are worth the paper they are written on and his presidency and that 4 year stint is a work of art as far as failed foreign policy goes. Clinton is another who failed miserably with his brand of foreign policy. Obama will solve exactly nothing in the middle east or anywhere in the world. He will claim to have ended the war leading to Jan. 2012 when the 2012 campaign begins. Obama is a poor actor in his performance as FDR reincarnated.
