Seems like they're just asking for info about him. Trying to build a profile, see if he had any other plans for another attack, or associated with others who may be plotting something similar. Does that seem abnormal or are some people (or bots?) trying to twist things around to create doubt about what really happened...you know, misinformation?

It's possible that there is disinformation. I did see this.
Nashville bomber's girlfriend warned police last year he was making explosives, reports show

Perhaps Indy is right. They are just collecting more data to make sure that he was the guy, and he always had bad character.

She warned the police. They went to his house. He refused to open the door. They had no evidence or a search warrant, so they left. They asked the FBI about him and he wasn’t on anyone’s radar. That was the end of that. They found his body and matched it to dna from gloves and something else.

I will mark this down in my mind as another guy who bought into conspiracy theories.

Maybe he's right, 5G is going to F us all. I seriously doubt that 5G is harmful to us, but even if he did, this particular action that was taken makes no sense how it would make any difference other than make him infamous. It sounded like he thought he was going to be a hero and had visions of grandeur, but no one is going to think of him that way.

isn't that how most of these turn out? Without looking it up, I can really only name Timothy McVeigh (sp?) as a guy that did this and actually got famous. I can't name the guy that shot lennon. Or the guy that shot reagan. Or the unibomber (I know it was Ted something...). Or the idiots that were going to take over Michigan. Or even the names of any of the 9-11 hijackers. You don't become famous or even infamous by doing this, but all of them thought they would.

I have a feeling these people are just lost, sad, lonely and vulnerable to conspiracy theories. If it wasn’t 5G it would have been some other injustice.

Wasn't it John Hinkley Jr or something like that? And didn't he want to impress Jodie Foster? And Ted Kaczynski was the unibomber?
Now, wasn't the reason that the 9-11 hijackers were doing it wasn't for fame, but eternal life with 77 virgins?

Not domestic terrorism but terrorism. Iran threatening a suicide plane into the Capital?

Chilling threat sent to air traffic controllers vowing revenge for killing of Iranian general is under investigation
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/threat-air ... i-revenge/
Multiple air traffic controllers in New York heard a chilling threat Monday in audio obtained exclusively by CBS News: "We are flying a plane into the Capitol on Wednesday. Soleimani will be avenged."

The threat refers to Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed last year in a U.S. drone strike ordered by President Trump. It was made on the one-year anniversary of Soleimani's death, for which Iranian officials have long vowed revenge.

It's unclear who sent the threat. While the government does not believe the warning of an attack is credible, it is being investigated as a breach of aviation frequencies, CBS News has learned.


This makes no sense to me. Can you imagine if the 9/11 terrorists announced the day before 9/11 their intentions to fly planes into the WTC on 9/11? That would be stupid. So why would Iran announce this?

They wouldn’t. They’re not behind this.

NRA files for bankruptcy, says it will reincorporate in Texas
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/15/nra-fil ... texas.html
Gun safety organizations characterized the NRA’s decision to file bankruptcy as a “desperate maneuver.”

The NRA, which said it was not financially broke, filed for protection under Chapter 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Dallas.

In its filing, the group said it has assets of between $100 million and $500 million, and liabilities in the same dollar range.

The NRA’s largest unsecured creditor was its former ad agency Ackerman McQueen, which is owed $1.27 million, according to the filing. The gun group and the ad company have filed contentious lawsuits against one another.


“Let’s be clear about what’s happening here: The NRA — which is losing power and hemorrhaging money — is now filing for bankruptcy in an attempt to escape legal culpability for years of financial mismanagement and illegal self-dealing,” John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, wrote in a statement Friday.

“This desperate maneuver is a de facto admission of guilt,” he added.

They will get out of paying much of anything in NY, then start again in TX and likely never lose a case there.
