    Middle East terrorism has surfaced on American soil directly from Hell.
    Unfortunately, politicians are going to take advantage of it for their own ends.

    If the garbage collector did it, would this constitute workplace violence Mr. President?

    The Boston Massacre, 2013. Can he ever say ‘terrorism’ evah? Other than as a CYA maneuver?

    Lefty loser begging for table scraps.

    While my lawyer is charging a reasonable rate, I could use some help, and would be grateful for whatever you can pitch in.
    If there’s any funds leftover, I humbly would like to use them for living expenses, food, finding a new apartment, etc.- until I can procure new employment, hopefully writing.

    Coming soon to a town year you thanks to Democrat sponsored “immigration reform”.

    Six people were strangled to death and one decapitated in the southern Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Sunday, the state’s deputy attorney general said, in the latest mass killing to strike the city in the last few weeks.

    Opinion of federal government hits record low.

  7. Bob Roberts says:

    And of course Feinstein tries to Blame America First.

    They have a Saudi student as their current primary suspect apparently.

    Authorities have recovered surveillance video from the area which shows a man with what looked to be two backpacks near the scene just moments before the blast.

    Late Monday night, law enforcement officials from several agencies, including the Boston Police, were searching an apartment on Ocean Ave. in Revere. It is not known if the search is connected to the explosions.

    In an interview with WBZ-TV, Rep. Bill Keating said he had been told two more devices were found, but not detonated. One was said to be at a hotel near Copley Square, the other was at an undisclosed location.

    My guess for the next few days narratives:

    April 15th / Tax Day +

    Patriot’s Day +

    Boston, the home of the original Tea Party =

    And there we have it. It will happen.

    Uh-oh, some heads are going to roll in Obamaville.

    The deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon that killed at least three and injured more than 130 is believed to be an act of terrorism, senior White House officials told Fox News.

    1) He admitted this was an act of terrorism and, what’s worse…

    2) He admitted it to Fox News!

    No obamunist is allowed to even think about or watch Fox, let alone actually talk to them!

    Poe confirmed that law enforcement officials are “watching” a 20-year-old “person of interest” which he called a “Saudi national” who is here on student visa. He even said that early reports he had heard said there may have been “ball bearings” inside.

    WBZ-TV reported late Monday that law enforcement officers were searching an apartment in the Boston suburb of Revere. Massachusetts State Police confirmed that a search warrant related to the investigation into the explosions was served Monday night in Revere but provided no further details.

    Police said three people were killed. An 8-year-old boy was among the dead, according to a person who talked to a friend of the family and spoke on condition of anonymity. The person said the boy’s mother and sister were also injured as they waited for his father to finish the race.

    Hospitals reported at least 144 people injured, at least 17 of them critically. The victims’ injuries included broken bones, shrapnel wounds and ruptured eardrums.

    Authorities say they are searching for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and black sweatshirt, possibly foreign national from the accent of the potential suspect, WABC-TV reports.

    Law enforcement officials are also searching for a yellow Penske box truck that reportedly attempted to gain entry with “medical supplies” about 1 hour before the explosions.

    “Five minutes before the first explosion, officials said this person attempted to gain entry to a restricted area. When turned away, he broke eye contact and pulled his sweatshirt hood over his head and left, officials said,” according to the station.

    Students in other countries assessing where to study abroad are increasingly scared of coming to the United States because of gun violence, the nation’s top diplomat said Monday.

    Speaking with CNN foreign affairs correspondent Jill Dougherty in Tokyo, Secretary of State John Kerry said he’d discussed the situation with officials there who said students felt unsafe in the United States.

    Given what occurred today in Boston at the hands of “foreign students” we could give a rats ass about theirs or Skerry’s feelings. I hope they are terrified of guns, because we need to start exercising the 2nd Amendment against bomb-making foreign student terrorists.

  14. Clingtomyguns says:

    In wake of Boston terrorist attack, amnesty and gun grabbing hearings delayed.

    In my class the typical Columbia political science student vowed to destroy capitalism, bankrupt business owners, and vaporize what they called “the white power structure.” For the most part these were spoiled brat white students of privilege and power. They were children of wealth, given everything on a silver platter and all they felt was anger and guilt. Their goal was to destroy their own fathers. They talked about it all day long.

    Suddenly our lecture was interrupted by a door swinging open violently—whereupon a breathless fellow student raced into the room screaming, “The president has been shot! They’ve just assassinated President Reagan.”

    They cheered. They clapped, they yelled, they high-fived, and whooped in sheer unadulterated joy. My fellow classmates, the ones I was naively trying so hard to befriend despite their radical leftist views, were HAPPY that my hero President Ronald Reagan was dead (or so they thought). They were celebrating what they thought was the assassination of America’s president.

    Folks, this is Cloward & Piven. This is Karl Marx, who despised the middle class and vowed to wipe it out. This is Saul Alinsky (Obama’s mentor) who dedicated his book (Obama’s favorite book) to Lucifer, the devil.

    This is no accident, or the work of an economically inept liberal. This is a purposeful plan to drown the nation in debt and hook a majority to government handouts, happening in front of our eyes. It’s crystal clear Obama’s plan was hatched in our college days, at Columbia, Class of ’83.

    Like you said: Their “students” set off bombs and fly planes into tall buildings and kerry is worried about “scaring” them with our guns?

    What a LOON.

    Best solution which works for me: If they’re scared, let them stay at home in their nice safe hellholes.

    PS. What exactly *is* the visa status of that Saudi they have in custody? Any chance a “journalist” will be bothered to ask?

    Funny how this leech doesn’t even have the option to look for a job. Typical leftist, he’s strolling into the brave new world.. ready to beg, with an open hand.

    I say nuke Mecca. Feral savages only understand violence, they WILL back off once their idol is reduced to glowing slag.

    I hope this doesn’t impact gay marriage and gun control. It’s a good thing DHS is watching all the Christians.

  21. Sweep the leg says:

    Hey, they got exactly what they wanted. We are now officially a third-word country! Way to go, both Liberals AND “conservatives”.

    Seriously, this is the logical outcome of a culture gone to shit. Multicult this and that. Blacks in all kinds of leadership positions. “Aborting” already born infants. Rap music. Homosexual “marriage”. Dancin wit da stars. The Clintons. It was inevitable, don’t you think?

    Now, wait for the obvious – this was a lone wolf, who in no way represents the religion of peace! He was probably sponsored by the NRA!

    This could easily have been avoided if the day after 9/11 we had sealed our borders with the military, and banned ALL travel of any kind from muslim countries.

    Instead? Bush knelt down before islam, and we elected a half black who loves islam, and hates whites, america, and it’s constitution.

    And people STILL refuse to see. We are F’d…

    just sayin’: it couldn’t have been tea-party or patriots or right wing extremists….no guns were used and their were no politicians/traitors harmed

  23. Dr. 9 says:

    Have you noticed how the leftist networks are bending over backwards trying to find some way to connect the terrorist bombings in Boston to guns?

  24. Sweep the leg says:

    I wonder how many of the victims voted for Obama, and worship at the alter of multiculturalism, and will fight to keep the demon from receiving the death penalty?

    I think it’s a big mistake to focus on Obama as the main force behind driving America off the cliff. This movement is much much bigger than Obama, POTUS notwithstanding. In the grand scheme of things, Obama is just a little cog in a big wheel. Moreover, the liberal experiment our Founding Fathers bequeathed us has been deteriorating almost from the onset. History informs us of that fact.

    What we are witnessing today is the death throes of liberty. Over the course of more than a century, our culture has gradually been transformed from one of liberty and “equality before the law”, to radical-liberalism and radical-egalitarianism. Obama and his ilk are the inevitable consequence of that long drawn out process. The difference between now and, say, 50 years ago, is the tempo of the USA’s dissolution has picked up significantly.

  26. dan says:

    I know ,’there’….more coffee.
    …and the more I think about it the more I agree with Sweep the leg….soooo F’d

  27. Son of Taz says:

    The perpetrator of the Boston bombing will probably turn out to be another Al-Qaeda wannabe, who figured out how to build an IED from the internet. As was pointed out, the explosions were not particularly large and at least two of them failed to detonate. The guy is an amateur and Al-Qaeda has the capability to do far more damage.

    If anything, this potentially could highlight another example of a mentally ill loner. Indeed, planting bombs to kill indiscriminately is not the act of a sane person.

    Further, it has been reported on Boston media that the apartment in the city of Revere the Feds and police searched belongs to a 20 year old that was caught at the scene of one of the explosions by a bystander. The bystander had been observing this character and when the first explosion occurred, he ran and the bystander chased him down. He is said to be a “Saudi national” on a student visa. That’s not been verified, but he could still be a Al-Qaeda wannabe, not actually connected.

    “My Creed” by Dean Alfange

    ” I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon. I seek to develop whatever talents God gave me—not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any earthly master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say – ‘This, with God’s help, I have done.’ All this is what it means to be an American.”

    Delaware abortion clinic facing charges of unsafe and unsanitary conditions

    A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what’s happening behind the closed doors.

    Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside.

    See the link, above, for more.

    Is media bias to blame for lack of Gosnell coverage?

    The trial of Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell would seem to have all the elements of a spectacular news story: shocking allegations, horrifying visuals, sympathetic victims.

    Yet until late last week, much of the national media was silent as testimony about Gosnell’s alleged “house of horrors” abortion clinic rolled out. Much of the media attention outside Philadelphia, in fact, centered on how little media attention the story was receiving outside Philadelphia.

    They’re trying to make excuses for the lack of coverage, it seems, drawing attention to the fact proven conservative media outlets have also not picked up the story as well. See the link, above.

  30. StanInTexas says:

    Taz, my prediction…

    If it turns out the perpetrator(s) of this bombing were in even the smallest way connected to the Right, we will hear non-stop wall-to-wall coverage of this incident and all of the ways the Right is destroying this nation.

    If they are not able to connect this person or person to the Right, this will be classified “workplace violence” or perhaps a sports injury. It will be the work of a lone-crazy person with no connections whatsoever to any terrorist organization and the matter will become as meaningful to Obama as Benghazi or Fort Hood.

    I really hope I am wrong, but unfortunately I have history on my side.

  31. Fiberal says:

    If the Boston bomber turns out to be a muslim, it is a certainty that he will join Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (911) and Nidal Malik Hasan (Fort Hood) under the protection of BO’s muslimphiliac DOJ.

    Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Very surprising the hate crime charges were brought. In the hope and change era, every scum sees people in uniform as legitimate targets. why not? They’re everything they could never be.

  34. Fiberal says:


    Absolutely correct.

    How long did it take to execute Timothy McVeigh (2 years) and how long will it take to do anything all to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or Nidal Malik Hasan?


    Most likely they will go the way of Mumia Abu-Jamal. More heroes for the left.

    Top 10 Excuses for Black Mob Violence, WND

    Colin Flaherty, WND, April 12, 2013

    Spring is here, and the time is right for … excuses for black mob violence.


    The Chicago Sun-Times is a national leader in 1) denying that racial mob violence exists, and 2) explaining why it does. The paper’s latest excuse for the latest episode of black mob violence in downtown Chicago, which featured 500 people storming through the area, beating and threatening and destroying property?

    1) Warm weather.

    The Sun-Times excuses have an ad hoc quality to them that gives even the casual reader the impression they are making it up as they go along. Just a month ago, Chicago saw a wicked and violent black mob all on video. All in the ice and snow.

    So excuses do not have to be true. Or relevant.

    This contest for best excuses was decided in February when Ahmed Shihab-Eldin hosted a live video stream on Huffington Post featuring several experts talking about mob lawlessness. This program packed more than 100 excuses into one 30-minute podcast.


    Luke Cho owns a store recently hit with black mob theft.

    2) “They are not really bad kids, they just got caught up in the flash mob thing.”

    Next up, Jeffrey Ian Ross, a real-life criminologist from Baltimore:

    3) “People in groups tend to let their guard down. They think they are oblivious to CTV. The reasons are ‘Boredom to wanting a new pair of jean to wanting to express their discontent.’”

    Busting Out All Over: Black Mob Violence

    Colin Flaherty, WND

    Welcome to the new normal: Large-scale black mob violence is busting out in Philadelphia, Chicago, Utica, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Wilmington (Delaware), Greenville (South Carolina), Grand Rapids, Peoria, Springfield (Ohio), Newark, Boston and Brooklyn.

    All in the last three weeks.

    Police say they are baffled. Others say it is a regular meteorological event: “Large crowds and fights are not uncommon in the city in the warm weather,” said the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.

    The latest example of the new normal took place Tuesday in Philadelphia: 200 black people on the streets of the downtown financial district: fighting, vandalizing, rampaging, refusing to disperse, tossing bottles at police. It began at 4 p.m. and took police 90 minutes to restore order.

    At the epicenter of the violence, an employee of Wendy’s said no one was surprised.

    “It usually happens when the weather breaks,” Lakia Garrick told the local Fox affiliate. “They come in here and go crazy. It was really expected.”

  38. Jodie says:

    I just watched the live press conference about the Boston massacre and here’s a synopsis. These are not actual quotes, just the jest of what was said:

    Various Authorities: LaR enforcement is doing everything it can to determine what happened. We are happy to take questions:

    Question [inaudible]
    Answer: I’m sorry, I can’t comment on that at this time.

    Next Question [inaudible]
    Answer: Let me turn this over to so and so…
    So and so: Uh, we’re not going to comment on that right now, but please be assured that we are doing everything we can to…

    Next Question: Are you going to review the surveillance [rest is inaudible]
    Answer: Let me turn this over to…
    Answer: We will review every frame… LaR enforcement is doing everything…

    Question: [inaudible]
    Answer: There is no suspect in custody.

    Thank you and we want to urge people to continue to conduct their business in the city and live their lives as normal. We have added more Police and National Guard to the streets for your comfort. There is no danger, blah, blah, blah…

  39. Sam Adams says:

    President Obama to take time out of his busy schedule to attend Thatcher Funeral.

    No…sorry; Dear Leader won’t e able to make it.

    Joe Biden to lead US delegation to Thatcher fun…

    Wait…Joe’s busy, too.

    John Kerry to open a bottle of Ketchup in memory….sorry, not that either.

    No….this was not intended as a snub.

  40. true believer says:

    Muslimes didn’t do it they all love dear leader messiah. Dear Leader messiah is loved by all humanity as he goes about saving the world. The evil Bush tea party did this because they hate liberals and Boston is majority liberal. The dear leader messiah is going to grapple down from the stealth helicopter and get the evil reich wingers.
