Liberals across the country constantly decried the chaos and instability felt from Donald Trump’s first term in office. Day after the day, news cycles would stoke the flames of chaos and discontent to create the appearance that Trump was out of control and leading the country toward total collapse.
Meanwhile, in Biden’s America, actual chaos has ensued, not the manufactured fantasies pushed by Mainstream Media. Genuine discontent has swept the nation, and many Americans are experiencing helplessness on a level not seen since the Vietnam War era.
Capitol Police responded to an “active bomb threat” near the Library of Congress yesterday. A man took to social media to announce his plans:

For several hours, police were locked in a tense standoff with a man sitting in a truck outside the Library of Congress who claimed to have an explosive device in the vehicle and demanded to speak to President Joe Biden.
At around 2:20 p.m., the suspect was seen exiting the vehicle, getting on the ground, and surrendering himself to law enforcement, according to footage captured from the incident.

The FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives arrived on the scene in what was a successful attempt to disarm the man without any casualties. The Library of Congress, Supreme Court building, and other government structures in the area were evacuated. The Supreme Court is currently not in session, and Congress is in recess.

Capitol Police warned bystanders in the area via their Twitter account:
MEDIA ALERT: This is an active bomb threat investigation. The staging area for journalists covering this situation is at Constitution and First Street, NW for your safety.

Law enforcement named the suspect as Floyd Ray Roseberry, from Grover, North Carolina. A Facebook user by the same name uploaded a video to the site Thursday that appeared to be broadcast from inside the truck outside the complex. Facebook has since deleted the user’s account.
Congressional staffers were warned about the threat, with staff inside the Jefferson building told to “remain calm and move in a safe manner to the exits.”
Several lawmakers took to social media to inform the public that they were safe as police continued negotiation efforts.
My staff in the Cannon House Office building are safe following an evacuation after reports of a bomb threat near the Capitol. Due to recess, I’m back in FL19.
As this situation unfolds, I pray the heroes responding to the scene are safe from any danger.
Pray for our LEOs. 🙏🏿 https://t.co/ygOgR3eNu2

The events that unfolded yesterday are undoubtedly disturbing, however, it’s just a matter of time before Democrats take full advantage of them for political gain. This threat will do nothing but act as a catalyst for those in charge to further wage war on what they call “domestic extremism” directed toward white Trump supporters.
