The Brothers Tsarnaev and the Danger
Whose Name we Dare not Speak

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 4/28/2013 4:58:29 AM

We now have had a number of terrorist attacks on the homeland -- though the administration often refers to them in ridiculous euphemisms like "workplace violence" -- and the behavior of the administration, including our lavishly funded FBI and Homeland Security Administration, and our richly rewarded media stars remains so predictable I´ve decided to spare you the time it takes to unravel the unending lies and poppycock we are regularly fed about these horrors, lies, and blundering that only increase our danger. This week´s bombing of civilians at the Boston Marathon in which three people, including an 8-year-old child,

The left can run but it can´t hide from the public´s curiosity about this. So they´ve gone into trying to mitigate the damage.Their main concern is these bomers were somehow related to alqueda,hich would change the entire conversation. Right now they can still claim the love wolf meme.

The FBI is probably being told to look busy but don´t get too serious.

Some years ago, up here in a mall in MA, we had a man running around shooting a gun. The police eventually arrested him. A few years later he came to trial. Found guilty, he is serving out his sentence. Only the people sitting in the court and a local paper reported that the shooter was yelling allah akbar and, when his home was searched, they found a lot of jihad evidence. But here in MA, we don´t count that as terrorism. And the public had lost interest in the case.

The unique alliance between Marxists and Moslems to destroy us must be recognized and brought to light of day.

The anti-Islamophobia lobby poses as the implacable opponent of bigotry, yet it spreads a bigoted view of ordinary white folk as so volatile, so brimming with fury, that they are one terrorist bombing away from transforming into an anti-Muslim pogrom.

It´s never the perp´s fault where the Left is concerned. Blame the victim and find out what he did to provoke the perp. That´s justice.

Americans are attacked and, in return, are warned by their president to behave. Obama used that formula to defend the proposed mosque at Ground Zero, saying it was important that "we stay focused on who we are as a people and what our values are all about." Apparently, the president sees the Constitution as a suicide pact.

Why did we on the Right know this even before Obama got elected while the Left blinded itself by his blackness and their Bush-hatred?

The collective media is also embarrassingly ignorant and lazy. They don´t know their history, and even if some in the media did know their history, they wouldn´t dare share the bloodied history of Islam. A "religion" that began at the tip of the sword and has stayed there ever since. And, they´re lazy because it is much easier to write puff piece about a Justin Beiber baby-faced bomber than to actually do a little digging into the darkness of Islam and how the radical strand of Islam turns young men into mass murderers and terrorists.

#7 is right the msm is doing an Alinsky on whites, the angry white conservative male is to be blamed for all threats we face as a country. McCain and Rubio want to give amnesty to 30 million illegals just like the Tsarnaev brothers. We will not survive as a Republic. The bombings in Boston are part of Ted Kennedy´s 1965 immigration act which allows uneducated, low skilled, non Christian, non white, often immoral immigrates from third world hell holes to flood into our country. Highly educated, talented and entrepreneurial applicants wait years. God help us!

Tolerant? Americans elected a Muslim as President.

OK, Clarice has given us a brilliant compilation of new talking points and indictments. After these "pieces" -- why am I still hungry? We know, even more than is expressed here, what the media is: a fifth column, a bunch of water carriers. We know what we have with this administration: interpreters of some far Left hidden truth blamers of a people with a capitalist Christian Constitution, fronted by a smug, ineligible marxist-muslim who games the system everyday to break it in "pieces." We, some of us, have gone to this: that everything in our time comes down to politics, where everyone must see through a prism of left or right politics, and that some of the politics is Evil, along with the practitioners. What is avoided, even in a well-truffled "piece" like this is: given the politics and cover up is Evil, why and whence has it come? Is it a spiritual cancer we have, and can the spiritual -- the good and evil context -- forever be avoided in discourse? Can truth ever have meaning if we do not take back the language and define what it is? If not, why not? Is it Fear of Fear Itself? Finally, can the crushing weight of this Evil lead to our demise? Will there be an answer from the brightest among us, an awakening from the children Abraham and those who scribble whose names are written in the Good Book -- or do we ... let it be?

He nails it on the idea of the media turning murderers into heroes. This can be seen as far back as the Bonnie and Clyde move where these seedy low lifes were portrayed as superstars. A friend of mine had a father who was a police chief in east Texas when the movie came out. Back then there were still people around who knew the real Bonnie and Clyde and some of the police officers they murdered. To say the least the law enforcement community was both saddened and outraged by positive portrayal of B&C verses the negative petulant way the law was.

Clarice is right about Texas. Richardson is frequently called "Dearborn." The giant mosques and the huge Islam center in Plano is exactly what Wallid Shoebat described would happen long before it did. They are training here in small cells being cocooned by the moderate looking shell. It´s so moronic but we blandly let them and "celebrate" them as the black burqua´d slaves walk through the Targets, Wal-Marts and Home Depots as if to teach us Christian white haters a better way. We richly deserve to be bombed and we will continue to be by these cells of Islamic jihadists, encouraged by none other than Homeland Security. Even a GOP president, Congress and judiciary will still buckle to this PC nonsense. Their plan is going much better and much faster than they ever dreamed.

In hindsight(because we are in fact now "dead country walking"), the fatal flaw in the otherwise brilliant concept of the America of our founders is that they never in their wildest dreams thought it was possible for a free people to vote in their own enslavers. Why? How was it made possible?

Well, that would be because the traitors among us diabolically discovered that you can easily win elections by simply importing millions of non-free people and giving them stuff for free. And...oh wait...they´re about to import 30,000,000 more of them...just to make sure.

Lincoln freed the slaves. Obama enslaved the free. Yes, he will go down in history.

And yes, a civil war is in fact the only path to freedom in both cases, since they´ve made sure it´s no longer possible via the no longer sacrosanct and illegally stuffed ballot box.

I got a perfect example last night while viewing the McLauglin show of the libbie line on PBS. Eleanor Clift -- the ranting liberal was defending the poor kid -- who was self/radicalized by the internet in his mother´s kitchen.

Some how she wanted to make the audience believe that WE "bad Americans with our technology" had been the problem.

Poor kid had a tough childhood growing up in America being the "outsider".

I wanted to send my television flying out my den window....

These liberals will continue working to down/grade the Boston Bombing. Don´t you let it happen Boston...

You lost some precious citizens and it´s time WE the people defend them -- just as the justice department thanks to courage/less holder sent in the lawyer to stop the weasel telling to much to the FBI. Not that I believe any information the FBI got would have surfaced. Between the White House and the press -- it gets dismissed with a "there there America -- we´ll handle this"....

NO -- no more. WE the people will handle our own protection....One for all and all for one....

We have arrived at the end of the "tolerance and diversity" road, which is anarchy.
Every governmental outrage is met with the same weeping and gnashing of teeth on Conservative websites, but Barack Hussein Obama has twice been elected preezy (please, no complaints about stolen elections, nothing is done about those either), Eric the Red Holder is still attorney general, and Janet Napolitano is still employed. The courts and bureaucracy are loaded with fellow travelers, and they will be there for decades. The media is a lost cause, no longer even worth talking about.
The language is lost, the borders are open, America´s enemies are apologized to and financially funded by the federal government, free healthcare will be rationed healthcare, and all that is left to wonder about is when and what the next marxist outrage will be.
Something is very wrong when a country is controlled by a government that clearly wants to terrorize and enslave its own citizens under the guise of "fundamental change", and so obviously rushes "forward" to bankrupt and destroy it before a manufactured crisis of any sort is allowed to be wasted.
I want so badly to be wrong,...

If and when the full history of this odious administration is written, Americans will realize we were led by a cabal of traitors. Fed and watered by a subservient media and educational establishment. "Opposed" by feckless political hacks who claimed the mantle of conservatism but who in fact were only concerned with their own place at the table of power and privilege. God help us.

#2 I can only imagine what John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Samuel Adams would say about what is going on in Massachusetts. My heart breaks when I think of the history of the Bay State and how indifferent the people now are to that rich history.

Ironically, the street on which the Boston Marathon bombings took place was named after the Boylston family. Susanna Boylston, John Adams´ mother, was a member of one of the colony´s leading medical families. Thank God Boston has such outstanding medical facilities - many more marathoners may have died if not for the Boston hospitals.

Another irony about the recent bombings is the Boston Massacre of 1770 in which there was a street confrontation and the British soldiers killed five civilians.

My point is that the current "Boston Massacre" may be the impetus much like the 1770 Boston Massacre which helped to start the Revolutionary War. As Thomas Paine wrote: These are the times that try men´s souls.

Clarice so often described in the article the restraint that has been shown by Americans, here-to-fore, when it has been so obvious that Muslim extremists are responsible for the acts of terror in the last five years. There has been such a low back-lash that the figures are almost laughable.

The good people of America are only going to tolerate the preposterous accusations by the MSM and this Administration for a little while longer. So many innocents have been maimed or killed by the unwarranted attacks on normal people going about their normal activities that "We the People" are going to have our say and it can´t be restrained much longer, I pray.

These two Islamic terrorists were very dangerous people as they beforehand planned and were willing to indiscriminately murder and maim Americans in the name of Islam, common sense tells you that, no matter how much the liberal left attempts to minimize their criminal actions.

Luckily for the USA the terrorists were very stupid, and essentially presented both their identities and overwhelming evidence of their guilt when they allowed themselves to be caught by various video surveillance cameras as soon as they appeared on Boylston Street. If those terrorists had been smarter and had say the night beforehand placed their bombs on the walls of buildings above the street aiming down into those crowds they could have easily murdered hundreds of innocent Americans.

Terrorism is covered up, lied about, and endlessly spun as anything else.
It advances the liberal/democrat agenda of softening the people up to be controlled.

Our liberal betters will get rid of the Muslim freaks as soon as they are no longer of use. The way things are going, we´ll soon have only two choices: Having every detail of our lives controlled by self-righteous jerks, or getting useful bits of our bodies blown off.

As Robert Spencer wrote today, "Islam IS ISLAM". There is only one Islam. It´s all right there in the Koran, violence in 63 places, the rules of Islam. It´s a political
ideology that combines religion as one.
Killing is an ideological religious act.
Our Islam acting president cannot speak out
freely on this subject. Most of our press are ideologically confined to socialism and Marxism, also a militant, coercive belief system, almost a religion. In fact Dennis Prager made a wonderful statement a few months ago, that Marxism is the most popular religion (I think he meant in the West) because in our society catholics, protestants, bhudists, jews, all worship
communism. Something like that. Corrections to follow! No matter how many peaceful, wonderful, productive Muslims there are out there, they are all subject to the rules of Islam.

On Sept. 11 2011 three Jewish men were murdered Al-Aqueda style throats slit yet none of the reportage from the time of the murders suggests the police
considered Islamists.

Tamerlin, who claimed to be "best friends" with one of the victims, not only failed to show up at the funeral but a few months later was off to Dagestan- At
which point Russian police were sending us repeated warnings.

I would assert that if at any point the murder investigation connected the dots with the Russian intel (or vice versa) then Tamarlin would have been so closely
watched that he could not have executed the Boston bombing.

Willful blindness in the service of political correctness contributed to this massacre and the MSM is still playing the fool on this aspect of the crimes.

I have said for some time we need to be on the Press like flies to manure. We are always encouraged to write our Congressmen/ladies and Senators. So why not write all the correspondents and Editors in Chiefs. Let them know we are out here and watching them like watching a child molester at a public park.

We have to shame them hard and swift. Let them know they can´t roam in public and continue to lie to the people. Make them answer for their words and why they are anti-american traitors.

Otherwise we truly are nothing more than sheep.

Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

In matching navy blazers, they’d recite academic arguments for and against various government policies. It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more. These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

Leaflets calling on Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to register themselves with pro-Russian separatists may not be the work of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, Jewish groups have said. According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

British Prime Minister David Cameron used his Easter message to talk about the significance of the holiday as he highlighted the role of Christianity in Britain and the plight of Christians in countries where they are persecuted. He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

As we head into a sacred weekend for many Americans, The Foundry would like to share these inspiring words with you. Have a wonderful celebration. Excerpts from President Ronald Reagan’s Radio Address to the Nation on the Observance of Easter and Passover, April 2, 1983 My fellow Americans: This week as American families draw together in worship, we join with millions upon millions of others around the world also celebrating the traditions of their faiths. During these days, at least, regardless of nationality, religion, or race, we are united by faith in God, and the barriers between us seem less

The debate over campaign contributions is never-ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self-made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
