Unlike you, federal government officials are immune from charges of fraud. The executive branch, vested with all of the government’s prosecutorial authority and discretion, is not going to investigate its own operatives for carrying out its own mendacious policies.That is the story of last week’s Boston Marathon bombing and the frantic efforts of the bombers, the brothers Tsarnaev, to evade capture, shoot it out with police (two of whom they killed), and — we’re now told — detonate more bombs in Times Square. The Times Square non-attack is quite interesting.
This excellent article is disturbing and frightening in its analysis of the administration´s unusual releasing of information - the resulting implications are sinister and chilling.

Watching Obama at the Bush library appear like a normal American president, speaking like he is pro-America, and remarking under a beautiful Texas sky that he "loves" our country, brings a chilling reminder of how he purposefully plays us, patiently playing his role in the attempted deconstruction of our country and way of life.
The fact that he enjoys our country´s bounty along the way is a bonus for him. And his wife. She´s not as good at hiding her anger and resentment at those of us who made her so "un-proud" of her country until she got to play first lady.
The country is under a spell. The little skinny guy with the big teeth and resonant voice has hypnotized America. It´s happened before, but not in America. You can´t help but wonder if it will all become known and then fixed. For some strange reason, I optimistically think we´re getting there. Lives are being sacrificed along the way, and it is so tragic.
I guess the new normal will be more bombings by "lone wolf" radical Islam believers which this Administration prefers over terror networks. I´m glad I don´t live or work in a major city because there will be more deaths of innocent Americans to placate Obama´s love for Islam.
Respectfully, 4, I have to say that to me Obama did not appear like a normal American president at that ceremony. His body language and that of his qween was most ill-at-ease. Perhaps it was because he was not the center of attention, as he has been used to being his entire life. And seeing Criso smirk during the benediction was akin to her crack at the WTC -- "All that for a flag."
Obama is scripted, every syllable, except now and then when he goes off script and really puts his size 14s in his mouth. He may have "sounded" gracious but my suspicion is he didn´t believe a single word of what his writers gave him to say.
I totally agree, however, that he is playing us to the hilt. Being a con is and has always been his modus vivendi.
Thank you, Andy McCarthy for keeping us informed about Obama, Holder, Deval Patrick and the rest of the Democrat liars. Now we know that the Boston FBI people were lying about the surprise Maranda ruling. And also the charade by Bloomberg and company regarding the NYC phony attack plans.
From Boston to Benghazi this administration is not only covered with the blood of innocent Americans, but is smeared with fraud, mendacity and corruption. The Democrat Party is well on it´s way to finally overthrowing the government of the United States. Our last chance to prevent this will be the 2014 midterms. Even then it may be too late.
Andrew McCarthy is excellent on terrorism, but he has to mind his facts or he´ll be dismissed as another right-wing kook (by more than the usual suspects). They killed one police officer, not two, and the one they killed they ambushed and shot in the back of his head. Otherwise, an excellent article.
With the bombing at Was it not the Marathom in Boston and the fact that all of Boston was put under Martial Law with the citizens of Boston cheering when the order was lifted is another frightening episode of what has transpired. Will people all across this nation accept Martial Law without any question? All of this has been so scripted and I am beginning myself to believe it´s all part of the "progressive" agenda for the complete submission off all the ´sheep´ to accept the communistic rule.
Was it not Valarie Jarrett after the coronation on November 6, who said it was now time for revenge? Are we going to allow obama, Val Jarret and all of his communistic Czars, his "progressive" cohorts continue with their AGENDA?
This man and his progressive friends will do or refuse to do anything that will advance their agenda. They have no conscience and they will do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Down through history men with this mindset have murdered and oppressed millions of people. It bears to be seen just how far they are comfortable going. That "shelter in place" in Massachusetts, was pretty chilling. To see law enforcement in camo brandishing weapons and shout at law abiding citizens to come out with their hands up should give everyone pause.
FTA/money quote: "they have convinced themselves that American aggression (what the rest of us call national defense) must be hamstrung by civilian due process — that war can be reduced to crime, even if the enemy declines to play by the rules."
That´s the core aspect: Just call it a domestic crime, keep it local, lest more resources be brought to bear like CIA, etc to get to and resolve the root cause. It fit´s the Islamo-Communist Obama´s doctrine to keep it reactive, keep the "crimes" coming and not ever engage in any proactive/preventative measures.
If you ever argue with a lefty about terrorism, mock them and say, "Remember when Democrats hear about a potential terrorist bombing, they call the Police" and watch the reaction: fingernails on a chalk board.
Americans are on their own.... WE must stand together like the Bostonians did with the Marathon Bombing....Don´t rely on the obama administration to protect you and yours....Remember the gooooberment´s response to Sandy?
Keep buying ammunition. Help your brother and sister Americans and forget Washington DC. The ruling elite don´t have a clue what´s really happening....
Everything about this administration is rife with fraud. His reelection was fraudulent. His energy policy is fraudulent. His economic policy, tax policy, you-name-it policy is fraud. And low-info voters are eating it up with a spoon.
# 19, says it´s "scripted" and Nobama´s commie czars know it´s "staged". Same idea. What a distracting act of horror to "stage" our own terrorist killing act to get Martial Law ! JFK, MLK, RFK, Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma, gave us a patsie, or nobody was ever found. 9-11, you decide, but it did bring Homeland Security and a government driven change of American life. Massive unguarded, non protected shootings equal gun (people) control. Boston, under the cover of a brutal shot dead patsy killing spree, netted America their first raw taste of martial law, the brutal, mass presumption of guilt, shattering of privacy in one´s own home. Now, add in a bizarre, crazed, IRS intrusive medical Gulag, where everyone must abide by about a million confusing, crazy irrational rules and regulations, Holder´s giving millions of illiterates the priviledge to vote and drive a car, and scavenge all that is left of welfare goodies, 50 non accountable czars, exposing registered gun owners in the press, it goes on and on. With all democrats committed to communism, and most greedy republicans not giving a dam, the only power group left to save us, is Tom Brokaw, Steve Pelley, Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer daily TV media to act as watch dog. But they all ignore the truth, censor the truth, are totally bought and paid for by collectivism. Diane, one powerful person, could change all of this corruption, ALL OF IT. She´d risk death, remember Breitbart, and she´d be fired, but she´d write the bestseller of all time and would make a world changing documentary. That´s the fantasy of the day, folks.
Besides the Granscian incremental revolutionary moves, the latest of which pronounced by Holder: everybody in the world is owed amnesty, Obama is consolidating Islamic domination right in front of brainwashed Americans.
The self-congratulatory line allegedly uttered by Rep. Thadeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) in Lincoln tells you everything you need to know about the Left: "A result procured by corruption by the purist men in America." If you are left, all left-wing goals and ambitions being good, all means to achieve them are acceptable. Holder and Obama are therefore given wide berth to accomplish their goals, in this case preserving image of the administration. The press gets it and approves.
For that matter, what *is* all this yap about Miranda? Ya think Jokar never heard of it before? Goat herders in Afghanistan can quote it to you. Even "before" he was read his "rights", you really think they were going to torture him if he didn´t talk?
I will say, however, that he has not yet been tried and convicted of anything, nor have most of the vermin at Gitmo. This is shameful. Why didn´t that judge who went to visit Jokar in his hospital, hold the trial right there and get it over with?
I actually wonder how with all this money spend on "Homeland Security" the Boston bombing happened at all??? Or illegals roaming everywhere in America. I am not talking just about mexicans. One would think that the HS task is to prepare brown shirts to subdue us, not to fight enemies.
I am thinking now that "Fast and Furious" was designed to put Hi-powered guns in the hands of "Insurrectionists" that will come into the south west using our guns and take over some of the state offices. They will declare Atzlan to be here ,and void the Treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo.
that is why all the push for Comprehensive Amnestia, that is going on now.Te guns will come from the US and will only be traced to the usa.
April was an unusual, if not the cruelest, month for New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who in September will mark two years on the job. On Monday afternoon, April 15, Abramson—who, at 59, is the first woman to serve as top editor in the Times’ 160-year history—had barely begun savoring the four Pulitzer Prizes that her staff had just won (this year’s biggest haul, by far, for any journalistic outlet) when the Boston Marathon bombings occurred. Pulling an all-nighter at one point in the third-floor newsroom of the Times’ Renzo Piano–designed Manhattan skyscraper,
A managing editor at Reuters has been accused of being a global warming skeptic and not running articles on the topic. Global warming coverage fell 50 percent after Reuters hired Paul Ingrassia as deputy editor, Media Matters reports. The issue came to light after former Reuters climate correspondent David Fogarty wrote about it on an insider blog. Fogarty said Ingrassia told him personally he was “skeptical” of global warming, and that after he became deputy editor, “getting any climate change-themed story published got harder.”
NEW YORK - New York City´s crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice. An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City´s Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants. The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March. The rule would stop many eateries from selling non-diet soda and other sugar-laden beverages in containers bigger than 16 ounces. The beverage industry and other opponents
Recipients of federal disability checks often admit that they are capable of working but cannot or will not find a job, that those closest to them tell them they should be working, and that working to get off the disability rolls is not among their goals. More baffling, most have never received significant medical treatment and not seen a doctor about their condition in the last year, even though medical problems are the official reason they don´t work. Those who acknowledge they´re on disability because they can´t find a job say they make little effort
With his signature second-term agenda priorities — gun control and amnesty — all but dead, President Obama has once again begun to search for someone — anyone — to blame. See, none of this is his fault. Five years of sky-high unemployment, an out-of-control federal deficit, spending run amok, gas prices twice what they were in 2008: Not His Fault. Yes, he did promise to be the great savior of America (he even pledged that the sea levels would drop under his leadership, remember?),
Talk about strange bedfellows. CNN and Fox News are rivals. So are CNN and MSNBC. And no one needs reminding of the warm feelings MSNBC and Fox have for each other. But with Fox winning the ratings race, jockeying for second place is the hottest ticket on the cable news fight card, at least for now. MSNBC jumped into this position after a relatively stellar 2012, primarily thanks to the Presidential Election and the performance of its own horse in that race. But 2013—a non-election year—it’s been a whole new ballgame, as CNN has greatly
This iconic picture of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum — because it was “rah-rah” American, a new book says. Michael Shulan, the museum’s creative director, was among staffers who considered the Tom Franklin photograph too kitschy and “rah-rah America,” according to “Battle for Ground Zero” (St. Martin’s Press) by Elizabeth Greenspan, out next month. “I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently,” Shulan said.
James Thurber once drew some cartoons of a woman playing poker. In one, she is seated at a table clutching her cards to her breast, eying the capacious pot, and inquiring, “What do four ones beat?” In another she is glaring across the table, demanding to know, “Why do you keep raising me when you know I’m bluffing?” Whether Brother Remnick of the New Yorker could get away with publishing such japes nowadays, we don’t know. But we were put in mind of the cartoons by the alarm at the New York Times over the possibility that President Obama
Most 4-year-olds don´t know the name of every state on the map, let alone the capitals. But most kids that age aren´t like Anala Beevers, a New Orleans-based genius who was recently invited to join MENSA, an international organization for people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence test. Beevers – who never leaves home without her map of America, which is said to be her favorite thing – knew the English alphabet at 4 months old,
When Michele Bachmann picked on Huma Abedin a year ago — claiming she had some convoluted connection to the Muslim Brotherhood — there was a rush to defend the longtime Hillary Clinton aide. The Minnesota congresswoman quickly got a scolding from House Speaker John Boehner, Sen. John McCain, House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers. But now that her husband, Anthony Weiner, is running for New York City mayor, the attacks on Abedin aren´t so ridiculous, and Abedin herself is not quite so untouchable. Sen. Chuck Grassley is continuing his investigation
Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune soared $3.8 billion yesterday as shares of Facebook Inc. (FB), the world’s most-popular social-networking service, rallied 30 percent to the highest level since May 2012. Surging demand for mobile advertising helped profit and revenue top analysts’ estimates in the second quarter Wednesday. The earnings may quell concerns, voiced by analysts and investors since Facebook’s initial public offering last year, that the rising popularity of smartphones and tablets is outpacing its ability to make money selling promotions to mobile users.
The Lincoln Memorial was shut down Friday morning after vandals splashed light green paint on the statue of the nation’s 16th president and the marble floor around it, U.S. Park Police said. No words or symbols were painted or written on the memorial, police said. No damage was reported at the Mall’s other memorials and monuments. Police are reviewing surveillance footage from the popular tourist attraction on the west end of the Mall, but so far no information has been released about who may have been responsible for the vandalism or what may have motivated it.
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world. (Snip)In our age, Nobel laureate, exempt Al Gore proved a fraud: the feminist who was accused of groping a woman in crazed sex-poodle fashion;
It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase. It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. The 400 indigenous Inuit inhabitants of Kivalina, who live
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get
A group of experts advising the nation’s premier cancer research institution has recommended sweeping changes in the approach to cancer detection and treatment, including changes in the very definition of cancer and eliminating the word entirely from some common diagnoses. (Snip) The group, which includes some of the top scientists in cancer research, also suggested that many lesions detected during breast, prostate, thyroid, lung and other cancer screenings should not be called cancer at all but should instead be reclassified as IDLE conditions, which stands for “indolent lesions of
