Terroristic Threat Shuts Down Top Republican’s HQ

Kari Lake’s campaign headquarters was targeted over the weekend by what her team reckoned to be a “terroristic attack.” Lake noted that the alleged threat wasn’t the first her team has had to deal with, but that it would be dealt with and the person responsible identified.

Dangerous times

On Sunday, Republican nominee for Arizona governor Kari Lake spoke to reporters in Queen Creek, Arizona, about her campaign headquarter’s weekend encounter with suspicious packages, which allegedly contained white powder and threats.

Concerning the Oct. 5 discovery of the threats, Lake said, “We’re in dangerous times. … This is not the first time we’ve been threatened. I’ve been threatened many times. Our tires have been slashed. We’ve had screws drilled into our tires so that our tires would blow out while we’re on the road.”

Reiterating that these are dangerous times, Lake suggested “that’s why we need to elect somebody who’s strong and a fighter and not a coward. We’ll get to the bottom of this. I really don’t want to get too far ahead of it.”

Katie Hobbs, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate who refuses to debate Lake, wrote in an op-ed on Saturday, “The new GOP is led by extremist, radical stone throwers like Kari Lake.”

Hobbs, who has not recused herself from official duties overseeing the midterm election, also claimed, “We can’t risk Kari Lake.”

Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers suggested that the potential risk to Lake’s life must be addressed, demanding that the gubernatorial candidate be protected by the Arizona Department of Public Safety to “err on the side of caution.”

What happened in Phoenix?

Around 10 p.m. on Saturday, two envelopes allegedly containing a “suspicious white powder” and “abusive messages” were discovered at Lake’s campaign headquarters in Phoenix.

Just days after former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stressed that Lake should not be elected, one of Lake’s staffers reportedly opened one of the suspicious envelopes and was exposed to the powder.

A source told the that in addition to the white substance, the envelope contained a letter with “a bunch of vulgarities and ranting and raving about Kari.”

Having noticed that the second package resembled the first one, the young employee reported it.

The FBI, Phoenix Police, Phoenix firefighters, bomb squad units, and hazmat crews were dispatched to the scene

“When officers arrived, they learned there were suspicious items located inside the mail. Additional resources responded to collect the items and secure the area,” said Sgt. Phil Krynsky.

Lake told reporters that “a couple” of staffers had been exposed, but that “so far they’re doing okay.”

“We’re monitoring them,” said Lake, “and we want to make sure that everything’s okay.”

Krynsky confirmed that there had been no reports of injury, but that the investigation was ongoing.

Although Colton Duncan, spokesman for the Lake campaign, indicated on Sunday that the powder was initially headed to Quantico for testing, Lake confirmed later in the day that it was now being tested at a local lab.

Lake said, “We’re going to find out what it was.”

Duncan emphasized that the Lake campaign’s “resolve has never been higher, and we cannot be intimidated. We continue to push full speed ahead to win this election on Tuesday.”

Media myopia, polarization

The alleged “terroristic act” that targeted the Lake campaign has not been met with the kind of media attention that the alleged attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband garnered in recent days.

GOP Chairman Ronna McDaniel tweeted, “More violent threats against Republicans that most of the media refuses to cover – the same media that has attacked @KariLake relentlessly. This is completely unacceptable.”

Lake, who previously was a TV news anchor, has long criticized the mainstream news media and its bias.

Fox News Digital reported that Lake emphasized that the “fake news media” has been a big part of political polarization in the nation and ramping up tensions.

“We are in such polarized times, and this is one of the reasons I walked away from the fake news media, because I realized that the media is a big part of it, pitting people against one another,” said Lake.

Referencing the threats her campaign has faced from anti-conservative, anti-Republican forces, she posed the question to reporters, “You guys want us like this?”

Republican Senate nominee Don Bolduc was reportedly attacked before his New Hampshire debate last Wednesday.

Earlier this month, a Chicago man allegedly left a terrorizing voicemail threatening to assassinate the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Illinois, Darren Bailey.

On Oct. 18, the home of Republican congressional candidate Pat Harrigan’s parents was reportedly riddled with bullets with his children sleeping inside.

In June, 26-year-old California resident Nicholas John Roske, who identified himself as a “trans gamer girl,” allegedly attempted to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh. Roske was armed with a Glock 17 pistol and had in his possession a tactical knife, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crowbar, and duct tape.

Hundreds of pro-life pregnancy centers, pro-lifers, and churches were targeted in a series of attacks by pro-abortion terrorists in the lead up to and following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
