Here’s a story you won’t hear on the news: a French-Canadian head case has been sentenced to more than two decades in prison for sending then-President Donald Trump a bunch of ricin-laced letter back in 2020.
While leftists were busy accusing right-wingers of inciting political violence for merely refusing to kowtow to progressive demands, 55-year-old Pascale Ferrier pled guilty to biological weapons charges after she mailed the toxin-tainted letters to Trump the September before the presidential election. The letters themselves, which Ferrier mailed from Texas, demanded Trump recuse himself from the race.
“So I made a ‘special gift’ for you to make a decision,” the letter reportedly read. “This gift is in this letter. If it doesn’t work, I’ll find better recipe for another poison, or I might use my gun when I’ll be able to come. Enjoy! FREE REBEL SPIRIT.”
Thankfully, and predictably, the letters never actually made it to the president. Meanwhile, Ferrier was arrested at the U.S.-Canadian border on September 20, 2020, with a loaded handgun, nearly 300 rounds of ammo, a taser, pepper spray, a truncheon and a fake Texas driver's license, CBS News reports.

As it turns out, this wasn't the first time this Quebec native and wannabe-terrorist tried to poison people she didn't like using toxic mail. Ferrier, who is a trained engineer by trade, had already been arrested and charged with eight crimes back in 2019 for sending homemade ricin-laced letters to several police officers, a few prison officials, and a Texas border county sheriff.
Speaking to a federal judge in Washington, D.C. last week, Ferrier told the court that the “plea agreements are not the best but the least deleterious design by the criminal ‘injustice’ system,” adding that "Plea agreements are generally designed to be unfair and iniquitous, giving the government pernicious advantages while defendants have to waive a bunch of their fundamental rights away."
She was then given nearly 22 years in prison for her crimes.
