The Christmas Day car bomb in Nashville, Tennessee
This page is about the car bomb in Nashville, Tennessee, December 25, 2020. This story
will probably fall down the news media memory hole in a few months, because the event appears to have been
a protest against domestic surveillance by way of 5G cell phone technology.
was the Nashville bombing a terror attack or not? As the investigation grinds on into the Christmas Day bombing
in Nashville, a strange question has arisen among those whose homes and businesses were impacted by the blast. Was this
or was this not a terrorist attack? It's more than a question of terminology for many business owners. If the FBI
designates the bombing as an act of terrorism, even domestic terrorism, it could impact how insurance settlements are paid
out. But thus far, the Bureau hasn't declared an official label because the motivations of Anthony Warner remain
Nashville's Big Bomb Was
a Very Rare Device, Experts Think. Anthony Quinn Warner's device, although probably made of common
over-the-counter components, is unique in the annals of mayhem, according to seasoned FBI bomb experts consulted by
SpyTalk. "We've never seen an improvised thermobaric device before in this country or any country," says Dave
Williams, who conducted the FBI's on-scene investigations of the World Trade Center, Oklahoma City, Pan Am 103 and
Unabomber bombings, among other notorious incidents. Thermobaric refers to a gaseousfuel-air explosion. "The reason
is, it's very difficult to get the timing down to get an optimum mixture of air and a liquified carbonaceous fuel such as
propane, methane, acetylene or natural gas," Williams told SpyTalk. "He couldn't have done it the first time and
made it work. There had to be a test area."
Lucky? He's dead! The
Nashville bomber was either very skilled or very lucky. As law enforcement officials continue to search for a
motive in the Christmas Day explosion in Nashville, analysts are turning their attention to a related and seemingly
significant question. When Anthony Warner blew himself up in his RV, he created one heck of a blast. The
explosion was big enough to damage pretty much every building on an entire city block. I'm sure there was quite a bit
of room inside that recreational vehicle, but it wasn't that big. So what kind of bomb did he create that was
capable of generating such destruction? Some experienced blast investigators from the FBI have been reviewing the
publicly available photos and videos and have reached a rather startling preliminary conclusion. They are describing
Warner's bomb as being "unique in the annals of" improvised explosive devices used by terrorists. If they're
correct, Warner would have had to have pulled off a very tricky design to create any sort of significant explosion.
Bombing Spotlights Vulnerable Voice, Data Networks. The blast seriously damaged a key AT&T network facility, an
important hub that provides local wireless, internet and video service and connects to regional networks. Backup
generators went down, which took service out hours after the blast. A fire broke out and forced an evacuation.
The building flooded, with more than three feet of water later pumped out of the basement; AT&T said there was still water on
the second floor as of Monday [12/28/2020]. The immediate repercussions were surprisingly widespread. AT&T
customers lost service — phones, internet or video — across large parts of Tennessee, Kentucky and
Alabama. There were 911 centers in the region that couldn't take calls; others didn't receive crucial data associated
with callers, such as their locations. The Nashville police department's phones and internet failed. Stores went
cash-only. At some hospitals, electronic medical records, internet service or phones stopped working. The
Nashville airport halted flights for about three hours on Christmas. Rival carrier T-Mobile also had service issues as
far away as Atlanta, 250 miles away, because the company uses AT&T equipment for moving customer data from towers to the
Nashville Bomber's Girlfriend Warned
Police He Was Making Bombs Last Year. Despite the F.B.I.'s claims to the contrary, law enforcement was warned
about Anthony Q. Warner's disturbing activities more than a year before he set off a bomb in downtown Nashville. The
new information might shed light on the alleged bomber's motive. The Tennessean reported that "sixteen months
before Anthony Quinn Warner's RV exploded in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning, officers visited his home in Antioch
after his girlfriend reported that he was making bombs in the vehicle."
the FBI Already Engaged in a Coverup in the Nashville Bombing? [Scroll down] There is nothing delusional
or irrational at all in thinking 5G, 4G, or any G before or since, including the earliest iterations of cellular, is being
used to spy on Americans. It's a fact. It is and has been. Indeed, it has been known since the publication
of James Bamford's book "The Puzzle Palace" that the National Security Agency and others have the capability to spy on
virtually every citizen of this country — and that was close to 40 years ago (1983)! And it's only gotten
worse since. I'm sorry to say it, but anyone who thinks he or she has any privacy is a fool. Even the current
president was spied upon. Edward Snowden, as I indicated in my previous column, made it clear just how deeply
implicated AT&T is in this activity. In fact, that company may well be the government's principal private industry ally
in clandestine work, helping to connect it with other cellular companies. If I know that, why wouldn't Warner, an IT
professional, know that? [...] I believe they are once again covering up here, creating a distraction from the actual motive,
because the one thing they don't want to be investigated — well, one among many — is the alliance
between private industry and our intelligence agencies, coupled with the realization we all live now in an Orwellian
surveillance culture, not dissimilar to that in China.
of Nashville bomber Anthony Warner told cops he was making bombs last year. Nashville police were warned in
2019 that Anthony Warner was making a bomb inside his RV — but nothing was done to stop him. Warner's
girlfriend told Nashville cops on Aug. 21, 2019, that he "was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence," according
to a report Tuesday [12/29/2020] in The Tennessean. City cops passed the tip off to the FBI and ATF. But when
authorities showed up at Warren's door no one answered, and a subsequent request to search the property was denied, The
Tennessean reported. Warner's bomb-making then continued unhindered until Christmas morning, when he detonated
explosives in the vehicle and leveled a stretch of downtown Nashville.
Bomber Anthony Warner 'Perished' at Scene, DNA Found at Explosion Site: Officials. Anthony Quinn Warner,
the person of interest in the Nashville Christmas Day bombing, died at the scene, and his DNA was found at the site of the
explosion, according to a U.S. attorney and an FBI official. U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee Don
Cochran said on Sunday in a press conference that Warner, 63, parked a vehicle on a street in downtown Nashville on Dec. 25,
then allegedly broadcast a warning before the explosion. Cochran stated that Warner "is the bomber," and "he was
present when the bomb went off," adding that he "perished in the bombing." Douglas Korneski, the FBI's special agent in
charge of the Memphis Field Office, added that there is no indication that anyone else was involved in the explosion.
Hours of surveillance footage was reviewed by officials, which was used in making the determination that Warner was the lone
individual involved, he said.
Anthony Warner Was The Nashville Bomber, But His Motive? All of the leads released by authorities since the
Christmas Day bombing in Nashville had been pointing to Anthony Warner as the prime suspect and now the FBI has put the
matter to rest. DNA testing has reportedly confirmed that Warner was in the truck and died in the blast. The case
is far from closed, however, because agents are still beating the bushes to attempt to figure out a motive. The press
is aiding in that effort and from what's been determined thus far, we might be able to draw at least a few conclusions.
As to Warner himself, we're beginning to learn that he was considered by people who knew him to be "a bit of an odd duck,"
but he had no criminal history to speak of besides a minor drug charge back in the 70s.
probing if 5G paranoia was behind Nashville Christmas bombing. FBI agents working the Nashville Christmas
bombing are asking around about whether Anthony Quinn Warner — a local computer expert named as a "person of
interest" — was paranoid about 5G technology, according to a report. Agents are probing if Warner, 63,
feared that 5G technology was being used to spy on Americans, a source close to the investigation told the NBC News affiliate
in Nashville. There have otherwise been no arrests or motive revealed in the bombing as of early Sunday.
Quinn Warner confirmed by DNA test as Nashville Christmas bomber. Human remains found at the site of the
Christmas RV bombing in Nashville belong to Anthony Quinn Warner, the tech expert behind blast, officials announced Sunday
[12/27/2020]. "Anthony Warner is the bomber," said US Attorney Don Cochran during a press briefing. "He was
present when the bomb went off, and then he perished in the bombing." Warner, 63, is the only known fatality in the
bombing, which also left three people injured and caused significant property damage, including to an AT&T building, knocking
out cell service across the state and much of the south. Forensic testing was used to match the remains found at the
scene with Warner's DNA, as well as that of relatives, officials said.
Nashville Blast the New Fort Sumter? [Scroll down] Given how divided our country is, what happened in
Nashville this Christmas morning may have been the first salvo in a second civil war. Just for the record, Fort Sumter
is only eight hours' drive away. 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?
The Nashville Christmas
Bombing is incredibly unusual for a few reasons. [Thread reader] The facts we think we know so
far — and things may change as new information emerges — paint a picture that is different than any
other attack on U.S. soil. It raises some serious questions. First, let's talk about what makes this attack
different. This was a successful bombing on U.S. soil in a large metro area. There have not been many of these in
the last 40 years: Oklahoma City, Atlanta Olympics, Boston Marathon, Times Square. Of this list, the Nashville
attack is much more like OKC than the rest. There, a moving truck. Here, an RV. The other, smaller attacks
involved pressure cooker devices and devices more like pipe bombs. [...] Police confirmed that the RV itself appeared to be
broadcasting a loud message over speakers warning people nearby to evacuate because there was a bomb. There was even a
countdown. Part of the warning message was: "If you can hear this message, evacuate now." And it
worked. There were, incredibly, no known deaths. Folks living nearby left their apartments, police swept the
streets, and no one died. It is difficult to overstate how unusual it is for an attack like this to include a
warning. That stuff happens in movies. It doesn't generally happen in real life. But it tells us
that the attacker(s) didn't want to cause casualties. This is a critical data point.
Bombing. It's early yet and we've no idea who bombed Nashville or why. I hope that, unlike the 58 murders
by Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas, the FBI will have some answers about motivation this time. [...] Alex Little, a former
federal prosecutor, has provided a thoughtful analysis. In a series of posts, he explains the various possible motives
and perpetrators of the bombing. He finds the timing and location of the bombing suggest most strongly the bomber had
some political/terror motivations. Doing this on Christmas morning was sure to garner a great deal of coverage and the
location — a major artery of AT&T's communication network — means it was a "massive infrastructure
attack"; it "took down phone and internet communications for millions." In his words, "we have an attacker who has
detonated a large bomb, who took steps to avoid casualties, who chose a location notable only for its impact on our
communications network and who has [not] (at least not yet) claimed responsibility."
Exploring New Theory About Nashville Bomber and 'Person of Interest' Gave Away Home Last Month. As we
previously reported, yesterday, police and federal authorities searched a home connected to Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, who
media has described as a "person of interest" in the Nashville Christmas Day bombing. Previously, there had been an RV
there similar to the one that blew up in the bombing. But it was no longer there. There was no one found in the
home during the search. But now the police are exploring that the bomber may have been killed in the bombing and that
it may have been a suicide bombing. The police have now confirmed that human remains were found in the blast.
Heroes at Nashville Bombing Show How Insane the Democrat 'Defund the Police' Message Is. When a call came to
respond to a "shots fired" in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning, it wasn't antifa or Black Lives Matter who responded,
it was six Nashville cops, some reportedly new to the job, who found themselves "standing between good and evil" in a
potential mass casualty situation. The officers, Brenna Hosey, James Luellen, Michael Sipos, Amanda Topping and James
Wells, and Sgt. Timothy Miller, sped to 2nd Avenue and discovered an RV spewing loudspeaker messages warning that it was
going to blow up.
'Person of Interest' in Nashville
Bombing Identified, Police Now Searching Home Related to Him. Information appears to be breaking quickly in the
case of the Nashville bombing. As I wrote earlier, the police had identified a "person or persons of interest."
Now, CBS is reporting the name of that person as 63 year old Anthony Quinn Warner and police appear to be at a property
related to him now. Police have not yet officially confirmed that name and it's important to note that a person of
interest is not necessarily the same thing as a suspect.
Anthony Quinn Warner Named as Nashville
Bombing Person of Interest. Anthony Quinn Warner is a 63-year-old Tennessee man who is a person of interest in
the explosion of a parked RV in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, on Christmas morning, according to CBS News. An RV
similar to the one used in the Nashville bombing was parked at Warner's home address in images available on Google Maps and
Google Earth, Heavy discovered. Jeff Pegues, a CBS News journalist, wrote on Twitter, "@CBSNews has learned the name of
a person of interest tied to the explosion that rocked #Nashville on #Christmas Day. Multiple sources tell us that
Anthony Quinn Warner, a Nashville area resident, had a similar make and model RV." Authorities have not yet confirmed
Broadcast Evacuation Message Before Nashville Christmas Day Explosion: Police. Nashville police were able
to usher people to safety before an explosion rocked downtown Nashville on Christmas morning in what authorities are calling
a deliberate act, while a warning message was broadcast urging people to evacuate moments before the blast. Officers
with the Metro Nashville Police Department carried out door-to-door and apartment-to-apartment checks and managed to get
people to safety shortly before the blast, according to statements made at a press conference. There was a loudspeaker
warning people to clear the area before the massive blast, according to a Metro Nashville Police spokesperson and
Some Interesting Questions
Raised About the Viral Video of the Nashville Bombing. Ford Fischer who has done a lot of coverage of Antifa
and Black Lives Matter may have come across something interesting when it comes to the bombing in Nashville this
morning. One of the most unusual things about the Nashville bombing was that there were reportedly gun shots before
hand and then a recording in the RV which warned people to evacuate out of the area before the RV blew up. But then on
top of that, Fischer noticed something else odd. Many in media have been sharing a viral video of the explosion area,
taken from across the street, with a warning to evacuate and then the explosion. Fischer noticed some interesting
things about the account that posted the video.
A bomb blast unlike any other on American soil. The facts about the Christmas morning bomb in Nashville are not
complicated. What is complicated is understanding who set off the bomb and why. That's because this bombing does
not match any other bombs that have exploded in the Western world. [...] Even if a person other than the bomber ended up
dying, this bomb blast was not meant to take human life. The street would have been relatively deserted on Christmas
morning and the RV itself warned people to leave the area. I therefore doubt that this was Islamic terrorism because I
cannot think of a single act of Muslim terrorism that did not have as its primary goal killing as many people as
possible. Unlike the Oklahoma City bombing, this bomb did not target a government building. Despite the usual
Trump haters conflating Trump supporters and Nazis, this fact alone probably means that one of the vanishingly small numbers
of actual white supremacist groups in America was not involved because those groups tend to be hostile to the government.
