The Nashville Bomber - Trump silent, 5G conspiracy and the mystery woman

The Nashville Bomber - Trump silent, 5G conspiracy and the mystery woman

In Review

The loner Nashville bomber has been identified as Tennessee born Anthony Quinn Warner, described as a ‘loner’ and ‘hermit’ by those who knew him. The Domestic American Terrorist was motivated by wanting to be famous, more ‘famous than Christmas’.

Anthony Quinn Warner, a 63-year-old, of Antioch, Tennessee is described by one neighbour as a loner, died when his recreational vehicle (RV) exploded early Christmas morning In Nashville, Tennessee, on 2nd Avenue North in the city’s downtown. The blast injured at least eight people and damaged more than 40 buildings, including an AT&T transmission facility that provides wireless service to much of the region.

A neighbour of Anthony Quinn Warner told local media that he wanted to be “more famous” for Christmas.

“I said, ‘Hey, Anthony, is Santa going to bring you something good for Christmas?’” Laude said. “He said, ‘Yes, I’m going to be more famous. I’m going to be so famous Nashville will never forget me.’” – WTX News

The Nashville bomber: The warning

Nashville Bomber’s Girlfriend Warned Police About Him In 2019

NPR says more than a year before the Nashville blast last week, Anthony Warner’s girlfriend told police that he “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence,” according to a police report filed in August 2019.

The report indicates Nashville police never made contact with Warner. Despite having the report in their database, police did not share it with the public until Tuesday evening – four days after Warner drove his RV to downtown Nashville and detonated a bomb out of a vehicle, killing himself and injuring at least seven people. 

Whether law enforcement had any warning about the bomb beforehand has been an open question since the explosion.

On Sunday, the head of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told reporters that Warner was not on the radar before the bombing, and on the evening of the blast, Nashville Police Chief John Drake said no prior threat had been made against the city.

5G paranoia

Nashville Bomber’s Reported Paranoia Lived in the Gap Between 5G Reality and 5G Marketing

PC says the FBI is investigating whether Anthony Quinn Warner targeted a AT&T building because of paranoia over 5G-related government surveillance, according to several news reports. 

If so, that brings the anti-5G conspiracy nonsense to a new, even more destructive level. For several months now, idiots have been targeting what they presume to be 5G towers (even when they aren’t) out of YouTube-soaked fears that 5G technology is harmful to their health. It’s even reached my New York City neighborhood; across the street from my apartment there’s graffiti that says “5G Kills Life.”

Much of the anti-5G movement is a social-media-fueled, malicious grift. But Warner’s 5G-surveillance fears, if true, open up a new front that shows a true weakness of 5G technology, 5G debate, and 5G messaging in the US.

the mysterious woman

Mother, 29, given TWO free homes worth $409K by ‘Nashville bomber’, 63, says she had no idea he signed the property over to her a month ago 

Daily Mail says a 29-year-old mother who was given two homes worth $409,000 for free by Anthony Quinn Warner has said she had no knowledge of the property exchange, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. 

Michelle Swing, who lives in Los Angeles, claims she was unaware Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, had signed the $160,000 Bakertown Road property away to her last month via a quitclaim deed.

Swing’s signature does not appear on the November 25 transfer.

‘In the state of Tennessee you can deed property to someone else without their consent or their signature or anything,’ Swing told DailyMail.com

‘I didn’t even buy the house; he just deeded it over to me without my knowledge. So this is all very weird to me, that’s about all I can say.’

However, Warner also transferred another home on Bakertown Road to Swing via a quitclaim deed last year. 

The $249,000 house had previously belonged to a member of his family and Warner had only been in possession of it for five months before again giving it to Swing for free. She later also used a quitclaim to give the house to another person.  

Swing declined to say whether she had ever met Warner or whether she had family links to him, adding: ‘I’ve been told to direct everything else to the FBI.’  

Why is Trump silent on the attack

Trump plays golf but remains mum on Nashville bombing, following a familiar pattern

The Washington Post says President Trump was at his private golf club in South Florida on Christmas Day when a White House spokesman issued a short statement that the president had been briefed on the massive explosion in downtown Nashville, and offered thanks to first-responders.

Trump played a round and returned to his Mar-a-Lago resort without further comment on the attack, which injured three, damaged more than 40 businesses and disrupted cell phone and Internet service for thousands for more than two days.

As of Monday, three days after authorities identified the bomber as a 63-year-old Nashville-area resident, Trump still had not commented personally on the event. He spent the day at Trump International Golf Club as part of a winter vacation that is scheduled to continue through Sunday.

Trump’s silence has offered another example of a president who, since his election defeat last month, has been consumed by his own political troubles and detached from the duties of his office as he wages a baseless assault on the integrity of the U.S. election system. 

But it is also consistent with a commander in chief who has, over nearly four years, quickly sounded alarms about the violence he has connected to Muslim groups, foreigners or left-wing social movements in the United States — but been slower to denounce attacks from right-wing actors or others who do not serve his political agenda.

On December 25, 2020, a suicide bomber detonated a recreational vehicle (RV) bomb in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, United States, injuring eight people and damaging dozens of buildings. It took place at 166 Second Avenue North between Church Street and Commerce Street at 6:30 am, adjacent to an AT&T network hub, resulting in days-long communication service outages.

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots and loudspeakers on the RV warning them to evacuate before the explosion, which was felt miles away. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is leading the investigation. It determined the bomber was 63-year-old Anthony Quinn Warner, a Nashville resident believed to have acted alone.

Eight people were treated at hospitals for injuries and later discharged. Three of them sustained non-critical injuries, including two of the officers who had been evacuating residents.

The bomber died at the scene, while no other fatalities were reported.

At least three vehicles burned after the bombing, at least 41 businesses were damaged, and one building located across from the site of the bombing collapsed. Structural engineers deemed some of the buildings in the area to be safe on December 29, but the determination of whether people could access other buildings is expected to take several more days.
