A growing sense that we´re not
getting the truth about Boston bombing

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 4/18/2013 10:48:34 AM

While the media are bearing the brunt of public skepticism over the handling of the Boston bombing, the behavior of government is also eroding public trust. Yesterday´s promised but cancelled news briefing is just one symptom. Andrew McCarthy of PJM notes that "Misinformation rather than enlightenment has been the order of the day in the investigation of Monday´s terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon," and that part of it is the natural outgrowth of the desire of investigators to keep the details of their investigations secret, so as not to alert suspects.

Look soon for the bait and switch. The media distraction while the Saudi slips out of the U.S. Meanwhile, a bubba is found to be the perfect scapegoat.

...and George Zimmerman is the "white" Hispanic...

If you have seen the survellience photos - the two guys wearing khaki pants, workboots and black backpacks are wearing caps with the skull emblem of Navy SEALS. They could be private military contractors.

What were they doing there? Find them. Ask them.

One of his own muslims may have been up to this knowing he wouldn´t be prosecuted. After all, Bammy had to cut security 45% cause the mean old republicans won´t raise taxes. This should do it! I wonder if there is ONE person on capitol hill that will question this. Uh, no-there isn´t, to many communist and muslims already there.

Nice try, #6. Take a look at NY Post and Imgur.com. The pictures being circulated are clearly middle eastern descent. There were many military there in honor of fallen comrades. (NY marathon cancelled.)

I´ve seen the photos #6 refers to. There were several members of the military that ran the marathon in full gear, including their rucksacks in tribute to their fallen comrades. Thats probably who they were.

#6, there were a lot of military personnel there, from the different branches, wearing their gear. They ran in the race to honor fallen comrades. This has been the case for years. Naturally those people stepped up to help when the explosions occurred.

Infowars is not a reliable source of information. Paranoia, yes. Info, no.

OK, we should not have ALL the facts yet, because if we have them, so do the bad guys, and they know how to react. That said, as I said in a previous post, The Government and Media´s immediate, concerted effort to pretend this was some sort of Tea Party/Tax Protestor event, however ludicrous, is also ominous as hell. At the least, it is their knee-jerk Marxist need to harness Conflict, and never let any disaster go to waste. At most, it reflects a valid fear on their part that one of their 1% Occupy Wall Street lunatics took one sip too many of the Government Kool-Aid. If this is the case, the Facts will have to be pried from their clutches.

The Marathon was the type of event in which lots of pictures are taken. And with digital technology, the pictures can be given to law enforcement but originals or copies can be kept by the photographer and examined later. It will be hard for the FBI to "disappear" photos and video which are not convenient.

If Boston blows up in TAARP Baby´s face, watch the DemonRats jump his sinking ship
before they all go down also on the Benghazi coverup, too.

They´d even be glad to get Dunce Biden into the White Hut ASAP...
avoid the primary fight with Hill-err-ee-ass and Rapist Billyboob in 2016...
Hold onto the White Hut with Dunce Biden as the DimWit figgerhead...

Wacky Baracky is a snarling loser who will drag down all DemonRats and DimWitz
if he´s given half the chance.

Since the DemonRats and DimWitz are snakes (like snake-skunk Schumer), they will figger
out they need to ditch their evil Dicktater before he takes them all into a sinkhole.

Pass the popcorn, please!

Heard those two guys have come forward to clear their names. They looked to me to be very, very fit types from their clothes and posture - exactly the type who would run a marathon and then hang around the finish line area to watch. I somehow imagine the bombers as looking more like they have just crawled out from under a rock.

If anything we should be ticked off about the Obama Administration´s incompetence around the investigation.

What´s Holder and Napolitano DOING?!? If she has enough time to gove an interview slandering Drudge she obviously isnt busy with the investigation at Boston.
Why is the FBI running around like the keystone cops?

THAT should be the story du jour...

I found it very interesting that one of those guys with the kaki trousers and beige boots was seen with a radiation detector in hand near the bomb blast while the smoke was still in the air. That coupled with the fact that the authorities in Boston said "we had no *specific* information prior..." makes me think that there was a strong indication that something might happen. If so, this was a pretty serious failure and would help explain the dodgy info we´re now getting.

Hint: Navy SEALs on a covert mission for the government would be dressed as anything but Navy SEALs.

The reason that there is such confusion about what happened in Boston is because nobody knows but everybody is talking.

If Al Quaeda can dress like police in Afghanistan, why can´t they dress as seals in Boston? Just asking! Our USN Seals would not be bringing black backpacks to a run. They would be bringing their full military rucksacks like the Army soldiers had done. so who are these two dress in military like garb? Inquiring minds want to know.

I was initially miffed AND ANGRY at the media’s “incompetent” coverage… then I got a COLD CHILL! Did they really “jump the gun”? Or were the ordered to recant by their DC “boss”? What if the reports of an arrest were TRUE… but the “perp” (dark skinned?) was not of the desired ethnicity? A Saudi who was questioned has reported to have been quietly deported (perp?).

I fear this crime must remain “unsolved” till a proper pasty (“right-wing” white guy) can be found or created (Adam Lanza type?)... One who will then be used advance the freedom destroying agenda of the Obamaites/DemWits. I dread to think this, but I do… and these days it does not seem all that far-fetched. Obama had a hissy-fit about the gun vote… lies will continue and multiply as is his policy. Scary!

I´ve posted elsewhere that it takes time to come to a successful conclusion on an investigation. It looks as though the two people that showed up in the videos (which had to take a long timeto view given the volume of recorded material) have surfaced... that they could have islammy connections.
As I type this, one is dead, one is on the run and the police are saying, and acting, as if there may be more than one person that they´re looking for. This will conclude soon.

Iran has signed a deal to sell Iraq arms and ammunition worth £117 million in a move that would break a UN embargo on weapons sales by Tehran. The agreement was reached at the end of November, documents showed, just weeks after Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki returned from Washington, where he lobbied the Obama administration for extra weapons to fight al-Qaeda-linked militants.

WASHINGTON — A new study reveals that nearly 33,000 jobs have been impacted due to the Affordable Care Act’s medical device excise tax. The report comes from the Advanced Medical Technology Association following an online survey of member companies last year. “According to the report, the tax has led to employment reductions of approximately 14,000 industry workers and foregone hiring of 19,000 workers,” the study stated. “The total job impact of the tax on industry employment was approximately 33,000.” Stephen J.

Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ Caused By

Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.” According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed

It turns out President Barack Obama is a TV fanboy. We already knew that Pennsylvania Avenue´s most famous resident is a "Homeland" fanatic, but that´s not the only small screen favorite that sets his pulse racing. The president asked HBO Chief Executive Officer Richard Plepler at last week´s state dinner for French President Francois Hollande if he could score him advance copies of "True Detective" and "Game of Thrones," according to the New York Times. President Obama reportedly was hoping to catch up on the two shows over the Presidents Day Weekend."True Detective" has aired five of its eight episodes, but "Game

Despite Obama administration claims that this year’s harsh winter is due to global warming, winters have have been getting colder in the past two decades, according to government climate data. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s recently released climate data shows that U.S. winters have cooled over the past 20 years at a rate of minus 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit per century. Data from Rutgers University shows that the Northern Hemisphere has been seeing more snowfall in recent decades — at a rate of over 100,000 square kilometers per year.

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record. [Snip] The first lady rolled out the law´s final regulations in January 2012 with a presentation linked to her ´Let´s Move!´ children´s health initiative. Changes took effect that fall.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS targeting scandal, will eventually have to testify or will be held in contempt of Congress. Speaking to reporters just minutes after Ms. Lerner again invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at a committee hearing, Mr. Boehner said he would wait for a final report of what happened. But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry. The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:
