Latest 11.42 (06.42) The two suspects may be foreign nationals, according to NBC´s Pete Williams. Quote They were legal permanent residents... They were in this country legally, at least a year. They appear to be from Turkey, possibly Chechens from Turkey. That seems to be the nationality here. We´re told they were not students, in their early twenties. One 20, one 21. We don´t have their names yet. The Associated Press has also said the suspects are from Russian region near Chechnya, and had lived in the US at least one year. 11.25 (06.25) A woman in Watertown has snipers

What are Chechens doing in this country? We have to fix immigration and stop listening to liberals and ACLU. This is Ted Kennedy´s legacy.

I hope the remaining suspect is killed resisting arrest. I don´t want to pay for a trial, 3 hots and a cot. The death penalty is what he deserves and I hope he gets it today.

Who would have thought Chechens would join the Tea Party? But there you go. Anger with high taxes seems to be universal, enough so that even adherents of the Religion of Peace have been drawn into the regular Tea Party practice of putting bombs in public places.

Devastating news day for the left. What a disappointment that it was not "right wing, white males" as they were hoping(certainly not praying for). Poster #1 & 2 are right on target. Let´s talk immigration in light of this too. Also, please see the pictures of the Boston Univ. Police Officer holding a gun. Many campuses in this liberal bastion have not allowed police officers to be armed.

I find it ironic that Boston should be bombed. A city that was a proud supporter and major funder of the Irish Republican Army in years gone by, an organization that maimed and killed just as indiscriminately in the UK.

I told a friend of mine YEARS ago that Chechens and Eastern European Islamic extremists would be coming to our shores and that they´d easily gain access b/c they would be able to so easily blend in...

...now, will be interesting to see if they were here on student visas and if so, did they ever attend any schools and if so, which one(s). I also think that there are more people involved.

Finally, the one thing that does SHOCK me is that they were still in the Boston area. I really thought they´d be long gone...in Canada or at the very least in a different state and under disguise. Arrogant, stupid and evil terrorists.

If they are really muslim, the one who is right now meeting with the Lord will be asked how can he have thought that God is a god of hatred. Does not God send rain on the just and the unjust? Has He not made this beautiful world for everyone? Has He not created EVERY HUMAN BEING in His Image? How could muslims think that He wants them to kill people? How can they think that He doesn´t want to give His created beings, created in His Image, every opportunity to come to Him? How can it not be OBVIOUS that Islam is not a religion from God?

Wonder how many gun laws these 2 terrorists broke?

I live in NYS. Practically impossible to get a pistol permit. Supposed to have only 8 round magazines. Can´t buy grenades at Walmart, and these 2 have all this firepower?

See how lawbreakers, foreigners no less, ignore the laws that the law abiding follow? See?????

Check out the Wiki on the historic figure after whom Suspect 1 was named:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timur

FTA: During his lifetime Timur would emerge as the most powerful ruler in the Muslim world after defeating the Mamluks of Egypt and Syria, the emerging Ottoman Empire and the declining Sultanate of Delhi. Timur had also decisively defeated the Christian Knights Hospitaller at Smyrna; styling himself a Ghazi.

Well, that does it.

Poster 36: Now if it was known they listened to Rush Limbaugh, all you would hear in that vein is crickets chirping. Conservatives are the enemy to the Libs. Muslim Terrorists are merely misunderstood, downtrodden ´Nice young men´ who are acting out.

And so it goes. They continue to bomb, decapitate, maim and murder us infidels any way they can. Why? Because their holy book commands them to do so in a 100 different places. Yet no one in our PC crazed Government or in the Constitutionally protected MSM will even call them by name. Is this country insane or is it just me? Those sworn to protect and defend the Constitution seem to think their duty is to protect and defend those who are butchering us.

Being Muslim is not an affliction one is born with. It is a religious choice and because it is a choice they can stop being Muslim any time they chose to do so. But they don´t chose to do so. It´s too much fun slaughtering infidels.

Everybody said so much here. I would like to add my 2 cents as a former citizen of the USSR.
Chechens are the cruelest of all the nations in Russia. They were the cruelest criminals, they were the primary hires for prison guards. Single women were assaulted on the streets and public transportation in chechen cities. Because of that they weren´t ever sent there alone on business trips.
Americans, get familiar with what they do in Russia nowadays - they don´t care if there are kids, elderly, innocent bystanders. It is just who they are.
And they were the preferred hire by al-qaeda just because of their hatred.
When I read that their father is threatening America I take it at full value.

I´m from Boston. #1 & #2 came to the US in 2001. They were 14 and 7 years old then. They settled in Cambridge, MA with the family seeking asylum.

Both attended the local public high school - Ridge & Latin. #2 rec´d a scholarship to University of Mass - Dartmouth,MA college campus.

By all accounts, somewhat assimilated. Conflicting reports about trips to Turkey. # 2 became a US Citizen on Sep 11, 2011.

The FBI had their photos as early as Wednesday but waited till Barry left town on Thursday for his PR - Day of Healing crap.

After Barry, left Boston, the FBI released the photos of these 2 and chaos has ensued. Incredible!

5 Things You Might Have Missed

1. The BBC knows it´s in trouble and is desperate to prove it still has meaning. The BBC did a good job last night, wheeling out its political big gun--David Dimbleby--to moderate in his arch, feline, Flashman-esque way, not showing any noticeable left-wing bias and following up with some integrated coverage from Paxo on BBC Newsnight. But gosh wasn´t the BBC eager to tell us how well it was doing? The BBC stands for everything Farage hates and no doubt cordially loathes Farage. Unfortunately, the way the political debate is changing, the BBC can no longer afford to marginalise its nemesis

Welsh ´NHS refugee´ begs

Artist with life-threatening pancreatic

An artist from Wales has become the latest face of the ‘NHS refugees’ forced to flee to England to get decent healthcare. Mariana Robinson, 60, has a life-threatening pancreatic condition and needs a biopsy before it can be diagnosed and the correct treatment given. [Snip] The Mail revealed two weeks ago that longer waiting times and poorer access to drugs mean thousands of Welsh patients are now flocking across the border to be treated in English hospitals. The number of Welsh cancer patients doing so has quadrupled from just 3,471 a decade ago to 15,450 last year.

´You are wilfully lying to the British people´:
Farage warns European project will end
´very unpleasantly´ after Clegg condemns
Ukip´s ´dangerous fantasy´ about leaving EU

Nigel Farage was tonight accused of being ´dangerous´ after admitting he ´admires´ Russian President Vladimir Putin and defending Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Two snap polls showed the Ukip leader easily triumphed in the second live TV debate with Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, in which he urged voters to join a ´People´s Army´ to topple the political establishment in Brussels. But Mr Farage was forced on to the defensive after claiming Assad did not use chemical weapons against the Syrian people. Mr Clegg condemned Mr Farage as ´dangerous´ and accused him of ´conning´ the British people.

Spam sushi, anyone? Canned wartime
staple makes a comeback at New York
restaurants - and diners ´can´t get enough´

Spam is back in vogue say New York restaurateurs, who are serving the wartime staple atop of sushi, salads and even straight up out of the tin as a side. John Daley, the head chef and co-owner of New York Sushi Ko, told the Gothamist that he likes to use the tinned meat mix - which retails for around $2.50 per 12oz - when rustling up his fancy $150 tasting menu. One diner who tried his ´Spam fried rice´ creation topped with seared tuna and pineapple, described it as ´so good´, ´savory´ and a ´little bit [like] oxtail´.

This is the moment a suspected Irish bomber blew himself up after it was believed that he forgot about the clocks going forward an hour for British Summer Time. Police are investigating whether the man, who was allegedly seen running from the scene covered in blood, had injured himself in the blast because he had got his timings wrong when the clocks changed. Officers suspect the bomber planted an explosive device under a Volvo SUV in the centre of Dublin and that it had either gone off too early, or he had returned to the car to investigate why it

Orwell knew what Vladimir Putin is doing:

In the nightmare world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, three vast totalitarian states were permanently at war. Big Brother needed outside enemies to rally the masses behind his rule. As ever, real life suggests that Orwell was on to something: authoritarian states do seem more likely to go to war; democracies, by contrast, very rarely fight one another. The country which might have modelled itself on Orwell’s vision, North Korea, duly tells its people that they are permanently on the brink of war. Whenever the tension with South Korea eases, North Korea always turns the temperature back up again. Only

I’ve been too cynical about these debates: tonight’s was brilliant. How exciting to see two people, representing opposite ends of our political divide, actually discussing competing visions for what Britain is and what it should be.

Four people are dead and 16 people injured after a uniformed soldier with suspected PTSD opened fire on Fort Hood military base, where 13 people were killed in a massacre in 2009. [Snip] Milley said the shooter, identified earlier as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez, entered one building and fired shots at individuals then returned to a vehicle before entering a second building to fire more shots. He finally turned his weapon, a .45 caliber Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistol, on himself after a heroic female military police approached and engaged him, Milley said. ´It was clearly heroic what she did.

When the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a law Wednesday morning that limits Americans´ contributions to political candidates, liberals in Washington hyperventilated. Within minutes, far-left Sen.

Nigel Farage accused Nick Clegg of “wilfully lying to the British people” and warned that the European project could end in bloodshed during the pair’s second debate on Wednesday night. In a heated and confrontational televised debate the leader of the UK Independence Party warned that extremists would resort to “violence” unless the European Union “ends democratically”. Early polls showed that Mr Farage won the debate comfortably, securing 68 percent of public support in a YouGov poll and 69 percent according to ICM. Following the debate, Mr Farage said: “I’m very pleased with the result and surprised about how dishonest

Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell bobbed and weaved his way through a contentious House Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday, parrying Republicans´ suggestions that politics colored his decision to downplay the role of terrorism in the Benghazi, Libya attack that killed four Americans in 2012. ´None of our actions were the result of political influence. None,´ Morell said, describing a chain of events that began with an armed assault on U.S. diplomatic stations and ended with then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice misleading five national television audiences about the nature of the attack. The CIA altered a series of talking points requested by senior

If the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had been set up to investigate an apparent fall in global temperatures it is not hard to guess what its latest report would assert: falling temperatures will lead to mass starvation, millions of deaths from hypothermia, the smothering of northern cities with ice sheets. I have long come to realise how environmental science works: it starts from the premise that everything in the natural world is under threat, that mankind is to blame and that only drastic changes can save it. It is bad news if temperatures rise, bad news if they

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
