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 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.

Washington Free Beacon, by Larry O´Connor    Original Article

On Friday, President Barack Obama extended the decision on Canada’s Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2014 midterm elections. Announced on a Friday afternoon (the Good Friday holiday, no less) the story was barely covered by mainstream media outlets already heading out of town for their extended Easter weekend. (Snip) It defies any sense of logic or reason to suggest that 1,000 miles of new pipeline, installed with 2014 technology, would somehow endanger humanity when we already have 2,300 times that much already working without catastrophe.

A prominent member of the Republican establishment has decided once again to damn Sarah Palin with faint praise. In a recent column on Susana Martinez of New Mexico, Jonathan Tobin says: “there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican who dares to emerge on the national political stage.” Tobin is a senior online editor at Commentary, so his columns provide a reasonable window into establishment Republican opinion. Then he goes on: While I’m no fan of Palin’s, the former Alaska governor was subjected to the sort of

Eggleston, a white-collar defender who is now at Kirkland & Ellis, will replace departing White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler in mid-May. "Neil brings extraordinary expertise, credentials, and experience, to our team," Obama said in a statement.

I’m sure that Cliven Bundy probably could have cut a deal with the Bureau of Land Management and should have. Of course, it’s never wise to let a federal court order hang over your head. And certainly we cannot have a world of Cliven Bundys if a legal system is to function.

New York City has roasted a man to death. Jerome Murdough, like a very large share of New York City’s homeless, was mentally ill. According to his family, he suffered from both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, along with what his mother gently describes as “beer problems.” He was a former Marine who was in and out of homeless shelters, hospitals, and the occasional jail cell, with eleven misdemeanor convictions for trespassing, public drinking, drug possession, and the like. During what was an unusually bitter winter in New York, Mr. Murdough sought shelter in an unsecured stairwell in a Harlem

For almost a month, Kansas Citians lived through what amounted to a horror movie without an ending. According to the narrative described in court documents, it would take cutting-edge and occasionally controversial law enforcement technology, including license-plate readers, to put an end to the horror show. The story of this very 21st century hunt began playing out on the tangle of freeways just south of Kansas City, Mo., where, starting in March, one driver after another reported being shot at by a mystery gunman — nobody they knew, for reasons nobody could fathom. The suspect would later be identified as a driver wearing

The war on standards

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

Federal Land as a Percentage

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.

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama

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.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
