NBC Reporter Luke Russert
Speculates On Boston
Explosions’ Link To 1993 Waco Siege

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/15/2013 5:18:48 PM

In light of the explosions that have rocked Boston on Patriots’ Day, during the city’s annual marathon, NBC reporter Luke Russert took to Twitter to speculate that today’s horrific events could possibly be related to the 1993 government siege on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas — an incident often attached to conversations about “right-wing terrorism” and anti-government violence. “I was at Fenway Park w my dad and @mikebarnicle during Waco which was on Patriots Day in 1993. Speculating on possible link,” Russert tweeted following the explosions.

Gee, Waco was started by the Government, not by any right-wing group.

How about these liberal haters stop blaming fellow Americans (during a time of war with an established enemy!) when these events happen.

"Get in their faces" and demand they retract their statement!

The lack of any logical thought in this tweet is amazing. The only link to Boston, Patriot´s Day and Waco is that Luke Russert was at Fenway on Patriot´s Day the same day Waco happened. Self-centered doesn´t even begin to cover this stupidity.

That´s what mainstream journalism is these days: Start with the story you WANT to be true, and just make up whatever you need to fill in the pesky gaps.

I´ll be curious to know, after the dust settles on this story, which news outlets stuck to the facts.

Peter Bergen CNN Analyst: ´Right-Wing Extremists´ Could Be Behind Boston Marathon Bombing
---------------------

There is the narrative folks. Even though they have capture a SAUDI and have the suspects on video you will be seeing more of this blaming Christians, conservatives etc. They will not blame the terrorists. Just as Bill Clinton blamed the people of the United States for 9/11 you will hear obama and others like him do the same for this terrorist act.

The Saudi gov´t will not have to worry. They will just pay off more US gov´t people as they did for 9/11

I was just watching Shep on FoxNews and he was pretty much doing the same thing - mentioning Waco, the OK City bombing, etc. all being in April and tying them together.

When we have some facts, we might know something. Until then it is all guesses that are worth nothing unless you have an agenda.

Oklahoma City was a response to Waco. It was against a Federal government building. It would make no sense for a follow-up attack to be against a sporting event. Simultaneous bombings--bombs in garbage cans detonated by cell phones--are typical of Al Qaeda. It is too early to say, of course, that that´s what it looks like.

Luke, please do investigate Waco...Please do....because the ATF fired on the Branch Dividians first and set the accelerant and fires on those poor people...(Note Eric Holders part)
Are you aware the ATF and FBI went in to take the Davidian firearms away because Koresh had many, though had threatened no one...are you aware the only child to claim abuse was a well known liar? Are you aware the dentist on sight was brought to identify bodies before anyone was dead? Now those are points one side claims..but rather than sitting idly on your bum, with a cushy job provided by Dad and his libtard friends ...get out and investigate. Then get back to us...or continue to blather like the other tools.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
