The overdose-reversing medication Naloxone is in high demand by elections officials throughout the country. Election offices, voting centers and government buildings have been receiving suspicious letters with traces of white powder or fentanyl.
Mail brings back memories of the 2001 anthrax attack that killed five people. Before the suspicious mail began, election officials had reported harassment and threats. The local police, fire and health departments are being asked to help with stocking up naloxone – a drug overdose medicine that can reverse the effects of an overdose.
It is unlikely that workers will be at risk from accidental contact with synthetic opioids like fentanyl. However, having naloxone available would be a wise idea. Reassurance for stressed ballot workersThe officials stated. That thinking sounds like opioid addiction is at epidemic levels and it’s not out of the realm of thinking that workers may turn to drugs to cope with stress. It’s quite a statement.
“My team is usually in the direct fire just because we’re opening up thousands or millions of ballots depending on the election,” Eldon Miller leads the ballot opening staff at King County Elections. Seattle stocked up naloxone following a letter with fentanyl laced in it in August. “I always say to my team, your safety is my utmost importance.”
Fentanyl can be 50 times as powerful as the same amount of heroin but briefly touching it doesn’t not cause an overdose. Researchers found the risk of fatal exposure from accidental exposure was low, compared with powdered anthrax that can float through the air and inhale it to cause deadly infections.
I don’t want election workers to face harm from fentanyl in threatening letters but I also don’t have a great sense of confidence in workers who may be turning to drug use to combat stress, either. We live in a time of change. It’s sometimes surreal. Frankly, I’ve worked polling places on election day and it is a very long 12-hour day, maybe longer. I guess I should count myself as fortunate that I didn’t need more than a glass of wine to unwind when I went home. Geez.
It’s probably leftists Sending the Letters The media reports that it could be a conservative. Of course.
This month, the letters were delivered to government or voting centers in six states, including Georgia, Nevada and Washington. The FBI and U.S. Department of Homeland Security intercepted some letters before they reached the recipients, while others were delivered. This caused evacuations in local election areas, as well as a temporary delay in vote counting. FBI and U.S. The Postal Inspection Service is investigating.
Some of the letters displayed an antifascist, a Progress Pride flag and a Pentagram. The symbols are sometimes associated with leftist politics but they have also been used by conservatives to stereotype and label the left. The sender’s political leanings were unclear.
The media cannot bring themselves to highlight leftist violence. With all the rioting and demonstrations going on now by the pro-Palestine leftists, I think we’re getting a glimpse into the future – like the DNC convention next summer in Chicago. It may look a bit like 1968.
Early this month, suspicious mailings have been reported. Elections were held in some states. The letters were reported by the election offices of five states, and the ballot counting in certain local elections was delayed. The letters were sent to battlegrounds for the presidential election, such as Georgia and Nevada, along with California, Oregon and Washington. Four of the letters contained fentanyl. FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service have confirmed the reports.
Among the offices that appeared to be targeted was Fulton County in Georgia, which includes Atlanta and is the largest voting jurisdiction in one of the nation’s most important presidential swing states. Authorities are working to intercept this letter. Brad Raffensperger, the Secretary of State, said that officials would send the overdose-reversing drug naloxone as a precaution.
Experts predict a rise in Physical violence As the presidential elections in 2024 approach,
“No longer are these conspiracy theories and very divisive and vicious ideologies separated at the fringes,” Jacob Ware said he is a research fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations and focuses on domestic terror. “They’re now infiltrating American society on a massive scale.”
Biden’s America is coming unglued. Mortgage rates are at record highs and credit card debt has reached record levels. 60% of American households live paycheck-to paycheck. People who are anti-Trump and lunatic are beginning to say they’ll hold their nose and vote for Trump if he is the nominee against Biden because they can’t vote for Biden again.
Biden has already begun to waver in his support for Israel. We still send billions to Ukraine. Many cities are experiencing an increase in crime. Antisemitism does not get the attention it deserves. Biden stated that he wished to be a president who would transform the country. Who knew he was thinking of this?
