It begins. Or….does it???
Having a life, I didn’t get to the Internet early on Christmas Day to check into the particulars of the appalling blast that went off in downtown Nashville the morning of 25 December. So I am hardly the first to notice that the homely little RV seen in security camera videos, which apparently carried the bomb to the intended location, was parked directly adjacent to a major regional hub facility for AT&T, located in the 100 block of 2nd Avenue North.
The AT&T building took the greatest damage from the enormous blast, and I doubt we will learn at any point that something else was supposedly the target. At least two eyewitnesses speaking to local media confirmed that the RV sat on the street a few feet from the AT&T building for some time (apparently a minimum of nearly an hour; possibly more) prior to the blast.
However, there appears to be a (possibly minor) discrepancy for which I haven’t yet seen a resolution. The location from which the RV seemed to be broadcasting an audio warning over a loudspeaker, if we go by the viral image seen across American TV screens on Friday, was not the location where it blew up. It’s not just that an eyewitness interviewed on a local news station described a different location (video below). It’s that there’s no bomb blast where the RV was sitting in that viral image. The bomb blast is visible in post-explosion videos down where the eyewitnesses have said it was just before the explosion. So the RV apparently moved — not just down the street, but across the street — after the Nashville police provided the image that went viral.
Lots more stuff at the link, and a hol-eee-FUCK!!!-ton more to mull over. In the course of citing the arrest of a purported suspect already, Bill mentions another of an abundance of aspects to this which are well out of the usual run:
There you have it. Dunno what it means. A smallish, 63 year old longhair gave his house away, filled his RV with high explosives, and blew up the AT&T regional center.
Your guess is as good as mine. Random observation: They are releasing a hell of a lot of info very quickly. That usually only occurs when the authorities want to establish one particular narrative.
My personal gut take, strictly off the cuff and based on not much, is that this thing smells like some kind of proof-of-concept trial run, perhaps meant to determine the reach of the AT&T comm node that was the obvious target. But who knows. I’m pretty confident that it ain’t Muzzrats this time. As natural (and usually accurate) an assumption as that is nowadays, the evacuation warning broadcast for a half-hour before boomtime militates against that well enough all by itself, I should think. OTOH, I’ve seen it noted here and there that THAT is an old tried-and-true standby from the IRA’s bag ‘o tricks.
Nor do I suspect any pAntiFa/BLM/random Commie lunkheads. Those cretins would most likely have fumblefucked their way into a premature detonation and blown themselves up.
No, I think it’s gotta be White Guys on this one. Whether it was OUR WGs, or false flag Feds, or some other bunch with unknowm designs, we may never know. But White Guys for sure. The only real certainty is something that I reminded my brother about yesterday, the sly warning we’ve all heard from teachers or professors: You WILL be seeing this material again.
Count on it.
In the mid 1980s, Cuba began to allow flights from the USA to Cuba via the Bahamas and Mexico. The anti-communist Cubans in South Florida took a dim view of the travel agencies that handled the arrangements. A method to show their displeasure was the near-simultaneous bombings of several of these travel agencies in South Florida. (Same night, indicating coordination and professionalism.)
The method of attack was simple and ingenious. A big plastic commercial-grade trash bin on wheels was placed outside the store-front windows of the targets. Looks innocent enough at night. A simple camping gas bottle was opened at the bottom, a plumber’s candle was taped near the top. The lid of the bin kept the candle from blowing out, or the rising gas from blowing away, and the lid hid the candle light from view. But the lid did not totally seal the bin, so the candle would keep burning. The rising gas reaches the lit candle, and BOOM.
These simple gas bombs totally gutted the travel agencies, blowing out their interior walls and ceilings. The businesses on either side were heavily damaged also. (This happened without the greater effect of the gas bomb trash bin being located in a tight alley with walls on either side, that is, no “tamping” effect to amplify the blast wave.)
Now move from Miami 1980s to Nashville 2020 and do some SWAG extrapolation, from an 80 or 100 gallon commercial-size wheeled plastic trash bin, to a pretty big RV. The Nashville bomber/s didn’t detonate a propane tank full of liquid propane, he/they just let the bottles fill the entire RV with a thick cloud of gas. The trash bins that totally wrecked the travel agencies contained about a max of 10 cubic feet of gas when they reached the lit candle. What are the dimensions of the interior of an RV like the one in Nashville? Call it 20L X 8W X 6H just for a rough calculation, ignoring the cab area. I come up with 960 cubic feet, call it a thousand with the cab. 10 cubic feet in a trash bin placed outside the windows of the travel agencies totally wrecked wrecked them, ceilings and walls blown out, neighbor businesses heavily damaged. The bin bomb is 10 cubic feet of gas. The RV bomb is a thousand cubic feet of gas.
No crater tells me it’s not even ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate/Fuel Oil), which is about 40% as powerful as TNT, depending on variables, which is given an explosive factor of 1.0. (C-4 is 1.4) Even an ANFO bomb would have cratered the street. IMHO this was “just” a pressure bomb. I’m guessing it was simple flammable gas released into a sealed container (the RV with all outlets sealed) and ignited remotely or on a timer.
For sure the feds already know all this. They are probably freaking out because they will not be able to keep it a secret how easy it is to make a rolling gas bomb. The purpose of this bomb might have been “educational,” just to show how simple and powerful a mobile gas bomb can be to create and use.
You’ll want to read the whole post, of course, but I’m finding the “WHY” more interesting than the “WHO” or the “HOW” at the moment.
Things that make you go HMMM update! More speculation and intriguingly intriguing intrigue from David DeGerolamo at NCRen: “Did We Get the Keys to the Deep State in Nashville?”
Tuned in update! Roger Simon gets the message.
Even with the warning, considerable collateral damage to businesses on Second Street and close by was inevitable, as if they all hadn’t had enough already.
Nevertheless, the person or persons who did this act—likely experienced with explosives in some way—ignored that potential destruction.
They clearly wanted to send a message he, she or they believed was of too much importance.
At this point anyway, that message appears to be that we live in a surveillance state from the likes of AT&T and our government and that that must end for the survival of our republic as it was conceived.
Our liberties no longer exist. China may be trying to take us over, but we’re already halfway there ourselves.
Given how divided our country is, what happened in Nashville this Christmas morning may have been the first salvo in a second civil war.
Of course, there is always the possibility that one side is impersonating the other in this action—that it is a false-flag operation.
But if so, it’s even more a license for civil war.
Whose statues will be torn down this time?
If this does turn out to be our time’s Ft Sumter Moment, statues and monuments are going to be of little or no concern. Gonna be plenty of other things torn down that are of FAR greater—or at least more immediate—importance, I suspect.
