BOSTON -- The bombs that blew up seconds apart at the finish line of one of the world´s most storied races left the streets spattered with blood and glass, three dead, including an 8-year-old boy, more than 140 wounded and gaping questions of who chose to attack at the Boston Marathon and why. Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsibility for the bombings one of the city´s most famous civic holidays, Patriots Day. But the blasts among the throngs of spectators raised fears of a terrorist attack. President Barack Obama was careful not to use the
FTA:"We will find out who did this. We´ll find out why they did this," the president said. "Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice." Looks like TOTUS was reset to the speech given just after Benghazi. Before we spend time tracking down the killers, let´s first determine what caused them to be upset with the runners from a hundred countries.
And also look at this for a motive. This was a comment after this article was posted on my FB page. "It might be interesting to note that the Oklahoma City bombing occurred this week, the Columbine massacre occurred this week, the Waco tragedy occurred this week, the VA Tech massacre occurred this week. COINCIDENCE?? I think not. The list goes on....The American Revolution began this week, so did the American Civil War, and the Bosnian War. Still think this is coincidence? Add the Rwandan Genocide and the Armenian Genocide to the list. Also, Abraham Lincoln was shot this week. This is just the beginning of the list. Still think this is all crazed conspiracy theory?? Well, before you come to any conclusions, you may want to check out the satanic ritual calendar. The month of April is full of satanic high holy days. This is not mere chance folks. This is not a coincidence. There are very dark powers at work here. We need to be on our knees, crying out to God, warring in prayer against these demonic forces. - Russ Dizdar
Also I was reading something yesterday and saw that the very FIRST attack on Islam when they first started to take over the world was on 9/11, don´t remember the year, but long ago. These people evidently have a memory like my DH´s Aunt Viola!
Yeh, I feel so much safer now that The WON has spoken. NOT! His best friend in Chicago is a domestic terrorist who got away with it. Anyone who would associate with someone who planted bombs intended to kill or maim people should be in jail not on educational boards and teaching in colleges.
The father of the 8 year old who was murdered at the marathon, also has to deal with fact that his daughter lost a leg and that his wife was seriously injured. That makes me sick to my stomach. This poor man who was being greated at the finish line by his beautiful family now has to face this horror. Please pray for this man and his family. Then say a prayer for all the victims.
Odumbo won´t call them terrorists out of professional courtesy. Before he´s through, he will have killed more Americans than all other terrorists put together. As for motive, they existed; that´s all the motive the Religion of Hatred ever needs.
"We will find out who did this. We´ll find out why they did this," the president said. "Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice."
Just like he vowed after Benghazi. As far as I know, nothing has been done to seek justice for Stevens, et al. But then, it would probably mean that zippy would have to find himself responsible and we know that will never happen.
One thing I´m sure of....this will not be tied to al qaeda. Here in MA, even when the criminal is yelling allah akbar and has an apartment full of jihad literature/dvd´s, the proper and correct officials in this state look past that to a troubled family or a confused youth. They have done it before, they´ll do it now. Because it fits their meme.
#4, I have 2 (lovely) children with birthdays this week. Because of their birthdays, I paid more attention to anniversaries of this week and we have noted the horrible events. Also, the Titanic went down and Hitler´s birthday is on the 20th. We have long called this "H**l Week´ without knowing that there were any actual connections. I am sorry that one more tragedy has been added.
random query from DH this morning - where does one purchase semtek, c-4, plastique? surely this is not something available at the local home center or online. can it be home made? how do the bad guys put their hands on the makings for an explosive device???
Back on 9/11/01 we heard about ´sleeper cells´ spread out across the US that would eventually carry out their dirty deeds. I wouldn´t be surprised if that is what´s happening. They waited until no one was expecting it.
One theme already developing within the liberal media is ´well, this is just the cost of having a free country´. There has been Zero curiosity as to why an attack involving two well-placed exploded bombs and perhaps as many as five other unexploded bombs went totally undetected as a potential threat by international, federal and local authorities.
The other 9-11 #4 occurred at the Gates of Vienna on 9/11 1683 when King Jan II Sobieski of Poland defeated a Muslim army which up till then was sweeping across europe. Search for Gates of Vienna and you will find an excellent blog about how peaceful the muslims are. /s

FBI is already ´scrubbing´ the case to conform to the determined script. Boston police forced out fast. Suddenly the two or three other bombs that were widely reported yesterday, out of police sources, are completely denied. The processing begins...to pin it down on a right-wing group or lone wolf.
My son was nearby in Boston yesterday, so my legs went wobbly an hour later, thinking of what could have happened to him if he had been 5 minutes earlier, thinking of all these poor people now without limbs, the little 8 yr old boy dead, the Newtown children... something is desperately wrong in this country that these events are happening continually, relentlessly. I don´t trust anything anymore. Ever since Flight 800, which was clearly a missile -- Nothing we are told from anyone associated with the Clintons or Obama is true. Nothing.
The fact that the House and Senate Foreign Intelligence Committees are being briefed on this subject today behind closed doors suggests that already there is classified intelligence on this matter, and that it involves a foreign element.
After viewing these explicit photos of carnage and slaughter, anyone still harboring any reluctance or even hesitation to use the word ‘terrorism’ is, at the very least, living in some nonexistent dreamland, moreover woefully unfit to hold any position of public office leadership.
We have only two ways to combat these terrorist attacks; identify and isolate the perpetrators, and have the best response teams we can muster.
The second item we are already very good at.
For the first, we are going to have to do what the Left will be apoplectic over — we are going to have to profile people.
The sorts of people who do these things do have identifiable profiles, and until we throw off PC restraints and aggressively separate out and deal with those who fit the profile, they’ll continue to mill about among us and kill us.
That’s just the way it is. If that´s offensive to some, so be it. Better that they´re offended than that hundreds of others are killed or maimed. Feelings heal faster than blast injuries.
My guess is that when all the dust settles, it will turn out to be another solo psycho with a private grudge. Against the marathon? The weapons used were meant to literally and figuratively "take the legs out from under" runners. (This is not meant to be funny).
Since now they are officially a means of mass destruction, does this mean we will have to outlaw the purchase of pressures cookers? Of do we submit to a complete background check before we can buy one? And have our names on a federal list as potential terrorists? I wouldn´t put it past the Obozo people to suggest just this. Got to "protect the children" you know.
Has anyone checked on the whereabouts of Bill Ayers? Obama´s buddy Ayers is quite proud of his multiple bombings targeting American citizens, including his bomb attacks on the U.S. Capitol building, the Pentagon and New York City Police Headquarters....
Or perhaps we should ask about Ayers´ wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who murdered a San Francisco police officer with one of her pipe bombs....
Where was Kathy Boudin yesterday? The accessory to murder in the deaths of two policemen and a security guard has now been made a member of the faculty at Columbia University, hasn´t she?
If you really want to succeed on the American college campus (and be invited to the White House, and possibly be named Chicago´s "Citizen of the Year"), all you have to do is, uh, plant bombs with the intention of murdering innocent people.
So they had a "Bomb Drill" going on during the marathon complete with bomb-sniffing dogs, and spotters on the rooftops. And yet they missed this?! I would bet my life that they knew about it, it is a islam/terror attack, and they will not release the info they should or misdirect because it does not fit their narrative. I am not kidding. After Benghazi and the first 4 years, I realize Obama and his cabinet & progressives in general are trying to destroy this country, and they will not let something distracting like muslim terrorism get in their way. Watch them try to misdirect this to some "right wing" person or entity. I have no doubt they will try to just sweep this under the rug. we can´t let them. Breitbart lives! Oh, and SO glad all the ammo, guns, and tanks you just bought were so effective in this attack. DHS is a joke - they are there to kill the non-progressive/non-liberal Americans when the time comes. I never thought i would say something like that, but I believe it to be true. I cannot believe what has happened to this once great country, but thankfully I believe there is fight in her yet, and if we survive Obama and defeat the democrats in 2014, and elect Rand Paul in 2016 we may... MAY have a chance to recover. God, please hear that prayer.

Whatever happened to the suspicious looking Arab man who was milling, loitering about, and then began to run when the bombs went off? Some men in the crowd grabbed him as a suspect -- I saw the photos.
There´s a furor at the White House, and they did NOT SEE it coming. Also, Republicans came under attack over the weekend for a well-intended but impolitic tweet observing the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks´s arrest for defying segregation on a Montgomery, Ala., municipal bus. "Today we remember Rosa Parks´ bold stand and her role in ending racism," read the tweet from the Republican National Committee´s institutional account. "Of course, there´s nothing controversial about celebrating a woman today who played a big role in the American civil-rights movement," writes National Journal´s Matt Berman. "What is bothering some people today, though, is the
Here the liberals go again: trying with all their might to prop up an increasingly unpopular piece of legislation. This time, no less than Robert Reich has attempted to take the "moral" high road and claim that there is a "moral imperative" to ObamaCare. Reich noted that recently he heard a young man express that he would rather pay a penalty than be forced by law to purchase health insurance. According to Reich, the young man asked, "Why should I pay for the sick and the old?" Reich´s answer is telling: "The answer is he has a responsibility to do so,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has instructed the heads of Israel’s intelligence community to look for proof that Iran is violating an interim deal signed with the international community last week over its nuclear program, a British newspaper reported on Sunday. The Israeli spying effort to expose Iranian duplicity represents a direct challenge to US President Barack Obama’s efforts, it said. Mossad, as well as the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate, have been told to dig up evidence of Iranian duplicity ahead of Obama’s push to win support for the deal in Congress and thus head off legislators’ demands for further sanctions
For nearly 20 years, the secret code to authorize launching U.S. nuclear missiles, and starting World War III, was terrifyingly simple and even noted down on a checklist. From 1962, when John F Kennedy instituted PAL encoding on nuclear weapons, until 1977, the combination to fire the devastating missiles at the height of the Cold War was just 00000000. This was chosen by Strategic Air Command in an effort to make the weapons as quick and as easy to launch as possible, as reported by Today I Found Out. The Permissive Action Link (PAL) is a security device for nuclear weapons that it
The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told. In the most dramatic of those releases, the US in April released a top Iranian scientist, Mojtaba Atarodi, who had been arrested in 2011 for attempting to acquire equipment that could be used for Iran’s military-nuclear programs. American and Iranian officials have
As America struggles with high unemployment and record inequality, everyone is offering competing solutions to the problem. In this war of words (and classes), one thing has been repeated so often that many people now regard it as fact. "Rich people create the jobs." Specifically, by starting and directing America´s companies, entrepreneurs and rich investors create the jobs that sustain everyone else. This statement is usually invoked to justify cutting taxes on entrepreneurs and investors. If only we reduce those taxes and regulations, the story goes, entrepreneurs and investors can be incented to build more companies and create more jobs. This argument ignores the fact
The U.S. released a top Iranian scientist Mojtaba Atarodi in April as part of the dealings with Iran in Geneva recently, the Times of Israel reported.

BARBARA WALTERS: I know that by now, you both have fairly thick skins. But when you hear your husband being booed, the president, at a recent basketball game, how do you feel? FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of being president of the United States -- WALTERS: So, it doesn´t get to you? MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of the job. You know, I don´t really know what more to say, Barbara, except it´s, you know, it´s a hard job. I am fortunate to be living with a man who has a long view of this job. Who understands that in the case of
President Obama said Friday he’s confident that the troubled healthcare rollout won’t be the final word on how his signature legislative achievement is remembered. "I continue to believe and [I´m] absolutely convinced that at the end of the day, people are going to look back at the work we´ve done to make sure that in this country, you don´t go bankrupt when you get sick, that families have that security," the president said in an interview on ABC’s 20/20. "That is going to be a legacy I am extraordinarily proud of." The HealthCare.Gov website went live on Oct. 1, but has been
Mega-donor and Hollywood figure Haim Saban, a longtime Hillary Clinton backer, on Friday said he’d “pitch in with full might” if she launches a likely 2016 campaign, describing a growing consensus that she is President Barack Obama’s “natural successor.” The remarks to Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper came several months after the media tycoon privately commissioned a movie about Clinton upon her departure from the State Department, featuring international figures including Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama singing her praises as Secretary of State. “I hope she will run. She would be a wonderful president,” said Saban, who gave $1 million last
Inside Bright Hope Baptist Church, the luminaries of Philadelphia’s black political world gathered for the funeral of former Representative William H. Gray III in July. Dozens of politicians — city, state and federal — packed the pews as former President Bill Clinton offered a stirring eulogy, quoting Scripture and proudly telling the crowd that he was once described as “the only white man in America who knew all the verses to ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing.’ ” But it was the presence and behavior of Hillary Rodham Clinton that most intrigued former Gov. Edward G. Rendell: During a quiet moment, Mrs.
SACRAMENTO — One longtime critic of federal transportation spending once concluded that it would be less expensive for the government to buy every new transit rider a Jaguar XJ8 than it would be to build certain new rail systems. Unfortunately, California officials may not have realized that the idea of buying people new cars wasn’t a serious proposal as much as a way to illustrate a point about excessive spending. The California Air Resources Board is now embarking on a program that would help poor people buy energy-efficient vehicles. In one scenario posed by the agency, a “voucher” might even pay
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Remembering the plot of a short story is no longer good enough in teacher Amy Lawson´s fifth-grade classroom. Today´s students are being asked to think more critically. For example, what might a character say in an email to a friend? "It´s hard. But you can handle this," Lawson tells them. Welcome to a classroom using the Common Core State Standards, one of the most politicized and misunderstood changes in education for students and their teachers in kindergarten through high school. In 45 states and the District of Columbia, Lawson and and other teachers are starting to use the standards
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Senior officials in the White House have said that Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “is desperate and weak,” in reaction to Netanyahu´s remonstrations against the deal struck with Iran over its nuclear weapons program. Israeli television Channel 10 quoted the officials as saying “His pronouncements show a lack of self-confidence,” in an unusually harsh personal attack on Netanyahu. “We are not perturbed by his vocal opposition.”
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
A push by activists to ease the 30-year-old blanket ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men faces a key test this week as a federal panel hears results of the latest research. The findings will be released amid growing pressure from politicians and advocates, including college students, to change the policy. Critics say the ban is a hangover from the early, fear-filled days of AIDS, stigmatizing gay men and ignoring advances in treatment and detection in the decades since. Supporters of the policy say politics, not science, is driving the proposed change, which would heighten the risk of
Barack Obama is a man with only one core conviction. He has, as the basic foundation of his otherwise disorganized and uncertain belief system, the irrefutable tenet that the United States, because of its European roots, has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history. Therefore, he is able to rationalize the need to say or do anything as the transformation of American society and the end of the pre-eminent status of the United States are his sole objectives. He has, thus, adopted a pre-meditated schizophrenic personality wherein he comports himself as an apologist and appeaser on the
Despite first lady Michelle Obama’s healthy living push, American eating habits deteriorated in the first 10 months of 2013, compared with 2012, according to a recent survey. According to a Gallup survey released over the Thanksgiving holiday, the percentage of adults reporting that they ate healthy all day “yesterday” has been consistently lower all 2013 compared to 2012.
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
