‘The hunt is over’: Boston
bombing suspect taken alive

CNN, by Nick Dutton

Original Article

The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt in the tense Massachusetts capital worried by warnings the man was possibly armed with explosives. After announcing the arrest on Twitter, Boston police tweeted: “Captured!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” (Snip) Police were alerted to his whereabouts by a man who went outside after authorities lifted an order for residents to stay inside during the manhunt. The man saw blood on a boat in the

Comments:
Do you see the hidden triumph in the Boston Police Department’s tweet?

     The hunt is over. The search is done.
     The terror is over. And justice has won.


Compare that triumphant tweet to Christians’ triumphant Easter hymn:

     The strife is o´er, the battle done,
     the victory of life is won;


And keep in mind that hymn’s next line:

     the song of triumph has BEGUN

And might the Boston Mayor want American patriots to perceive additional meaning in his tweet? (Emphasis is mine.)

"We got him," Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted immediately after Tsarnaev was arrested. "I have never loved this city & its people more than I do today. Nothing can defeat the heart of this city .. nothing."

Now remember who said the following?

I have never been more proud of my country than I am tonight. For the first time in our history a candidate with a major African-American ancestry will secure enough delegates to win the nomination of a major political party.

(Most versions of this quote apart from its context have Michelle saying ‘today’ instead of ‘tonight’.)

Do we dare believe that God has chosen the site of America’s liberating Tea Party to ignite our retaking, our repossession, of our Constitutional government?

As an American, I am NOT proud to see my fellow citizens celebrate diversity by cowering in their homes for an entire day, with no means to really protect themselves and their loved ones should an invader enter their home. Anyone that is proud about what happened in Boston this week has to be a hard left liberal committed to disarming American citizens and opening the door even wider to foreigners.

Not the legacy the Minutemen established, but certainly "hope and change".

When the DC ruling elite check the coverage -- they´ve gotta see their attempt to "change" America isn´t working....

The REAL folk are alive and well as demonstrated at the Bruins game. 17,000 Americans singing the National Anthem....

It was validation of all that core belief. WE are FREE and WE aren´t gonna allow anyone -- terrorists NOR politicians take our God given rights...

God Bless Boston!! You are a worthy city...

We´ve seen so many outstanding photos of the scenes last night - before and after capture. The common denominator on all these faces - citizens and law enforcement alike - is that "Don´t Mess With Us" look on their faces.

The folks in Boston can sing dance and rejoice all they want but there is still something wrong with this picture. (All the folks with guns went to look for the guy and all the folks without guns had to cower in their homes) What was it that caused the Ambassador of Saudi Arabi to have to have an emergency meeting with the President when they had the first guy in custody. He may or may not have had something to do with the bombings but there is something about this they they had to squash in a hurry. I would not get so rejoicful Boston. Just sayin.

Only the first of many hunts is over. This should be just the beginning of a long investigation to who was working with these two. Who was advising, who was financing, who was helping in any way, shape or form. I´ll be interested in how some of the so-called Sunday TV news magazines handle this and if they ask questions like #11. It should give us some indication of how the White House wants this played.
Will he be tried as an enemy combatant or read his Mirada rights and tried in the court system for instance. I seriously doubt that most of the Bostonians impacted by this want to see this guy lawyered up...and shut up.

The hunt isn´t over. The hunt has not yet begun and it probably never will begin. Would you be surprised if you gave your enemy, the enemy that wants you dead right now, all your weapons, all your abilities to defend yourself; invite that enemy into your house with your weapons and warn your family not to offend your enemy; when your enemy brutally kills a member of your family? Would you continue to ignore the enemy IN YOUR HOUSE as he methodically plans on killing every member of your family and you? Well, guess what we continue to do non-stop? Wallid Shoebat helped DESIGN what the Muslims are doing right now in this nation before he became a Christian. He has been warning us for years about all this and it never ceases to fall on deaf ears, both liberal and conservative. When his former plans continue to come true, we hold candle light vigils and ignore the enemy in our house with our weapons (and we teach ourselves to fear our own weapons in our hands but not in our enemy´s hands). Look, they are training how to kill us in USA mosques RIGHT NOW but even hinting at the obvious is considered hate speech by most. The hunt is not over. We don´t even know what hunt means and make sure we never will even after we´re dead.

Poster 9 what a joke - the TOO COOL bazillion armed knuckleheads with the "don´t mess with us" look? Are you kidding me?

Everyone in Boston and MA for that matter should be hanging their heads in shame. The government closed down an entire city. They occupied a city in America yesterday. Armed goons from every branch of law enforement were marching door to door and entering with out search warrents ...don´t mess with us indeed. It looked like Germany in the 30´s.

What are you thinking? How easy it was for them to swoop in, order everyone into their homes on pain of arrest then storm those homes looking for a pimply 19 year old jerk. And the populous said "Oh yes officers come right in" Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves.

You will see more of this nonsense as the weeks and months progress and it will happen at any and all provocation.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Here´s my observation, Homeland Security failed and these two Russian jerkweeds were in this country under the radar screen, ´failure´.
Boston will have a tab to pay for two losers who didn´t even have an escape plan. The cops need some target practice with all the rounds they expended only to wound the second murdering idiot. Boston as a whole are a pack of liberal cowards. The bad guys obtained guns and they weren´t even citizens, background checks anyone? I´m glad I don´t live there.
Diversity patriots really paid off didn´t it?

Yes Homeland Security did fail, a lack of leadership all the way to the top. Big Sis bought a billion bullets to protect the Government from it´s citizens while our citizens needed protection from foreigners and our own Government.

The Gang of Eight should be proud today. Try serving the citizens of this country instead of trying to buy votes from Criminals. Also, why are we promoting immigration from Muslims. They don´t blend and think they are immune from the laws of the countries they swarm to. We need to take a step backwards and relook at the mess our politicians have created. The first step is to send all illegal invaders home. Why reward criminals with benefits and tax citizens for political failures by our incompetent leaders.

Boston, you´re partying too early. 2nd perp will not have his Miranda rights read to him for another 24 hours or more, very deliberately, to set up the story that will get the perp off. The sisters here in West New York (NJ) will be screaming for blood and are undoubtedly lining up a lawyer. When he gets Mirandized, his undoubtedly radical lawyer from Harvard will get him off based on the delay. His citizenship will be revoked and he´ll be deported, returned to his parents in Dagestan. The rest of the suspects? Nothing, just gathering information. Move along, nothing to see here. Back to the Red Sox game.

And the dead will be buried, the brain damaged and limbless will be in rehab, their lives forever changed, and we´ll be waiting for the next attack. Party on.

Speaking of Dagestan, those parents are already feeding the story to RT that their sons were being run by the CIA, which plays beautifully into the Russians´ hands who gain when we are run down. Now the Chechens will have even more reason to organize attacks. Perhaps The Pretender in the WH needs to get some more orders from Putin?

I look for this guy to "unexpectantly" die. CAIR is already out there saying it is a frame-up. The obligatory story of a Muslim getting abused in Boston is making the rounds.

Don´t forget he was never read his Miranda rights.

Also he was discovered by a smoker. He is probably a closet Tea Party member. Finally a white conservative we can blame this on.

The militarization of our police seems complete, watching this play out. Yet the wanted man was discovered by an ordinary homeowner. What if Tsarnaev had found his way into the man´s home, or a neighbor´s? I don´t fault the police, but they aren´t the ones who found the guy.

Egypt´s electoral commission said Sunday the presidential election will take place on May 26 and 27, 10 months after the army overthrew Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi. The man who toppled him, now retired army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is expected to win the vote easily as he rides a wave of popularity for removing the divisive president in July. (Snip) Meanwhile, three Hamas militants were arrested in Sinai by Egyptian security forces, suspected of planning to assassinate front-runner presidential candidate al-Sisi, Kuwaiti daily newspaper Al-Rai reported on Sunday.

CAIRO - Three Hamas militants who infiltrated into Sinai from Gaza were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to assassinate former Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is running for president, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai. The three carried a coded letter with instructions to execute the assassination, passed by a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who escaped to Gaza. (Snip) The officials warned of a troubling development taking place among the al-Qaeda-linked organizations already inside Egypt. They said there is information the militant groups are forming a de facto chain of command, with alarming coordination between

Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has recently intensified contact with the Russian Defense Ministry in order to expedite the completion of an arms deal. According to senior Egyptian sources that the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai quoted in a report on Wednesday, the deal with Russia includes advanced aircraft, monitoring equipment and other sophisticated weapons that would be used to fight terrorism emanating from Sinai. (Snip) The delay continues an ongoing US partial aid and weapons freeze that has largely been seen as punishment for Sisi’s military coup and crackdown on former president Mohamed Morsi and his

An Egyptian court on Sunday set Sunday for the resumption of the trial of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and 14 co-defendants for allegedly inciting the murder of demonstrators outside Cairo´s Ittihadiya presidential palace in late 2012, a judicial source said Tuesday. According to the source, the decision came one day after the same court turned down a request for the recusal of the presiding judges in the case. (Snip) Morsi and his 14 co-defendants – seven of whom are being tried in absentia – are charged with inciting the murder of opposition demonstrators during clashes between pro- and anti-Morsi

This morning, Lois Lerner again pleaded the Fifth, refusing to answer any of Chairman Darrell Issa’s questions.  After a few minutes of Lerner’s repetitive non-response, Issa adjourned the hearing, so we don’t know if the committee planned to address this particular issue.

Cairo - An Egyptian court will begin hearing testimonies in the murder trial of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi from Wednesday, when a former top military officer will give evidence. [Snip] Morsi was present in the court, inside a soundproof glass dock to prevent him from interrupting proceedings with defiant outbursts, as he had done in previous hearings. Morsi and 14 co-defendants, including former aides, are accused of inciting the killing of opposition activists outside the presidential palace in December 2012, an incident that hastened his overthrow by the military almost seven months later.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

There were few complaints at the Woodruff polls as South Carolina´s new voter photo ID requirement was enforced for the first time in Spartanburg County. The re-do election for mayor in Woodruff is the first Spartanburg County election since the photo ID requirement went into effect Jan. 1.

(Snip) The law was passed in 2012 as a measure to combat voter fraud, according to proponents.

Why the ‘threat’ on

To the world beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed Watergate duo went public with his recent White House run-in. This would be an oversight. (Snip) Distrust of media, encouraged by alternative media seeking to enhance their own standing, has become a tool useful to the very powers the Fourth Estate was constitutionally endowed to monitor. When the president can bypass reporters to reach the public, it is not far-fetched to imagine a time — perhaps now? — when the state controls the message.

There are two stories circulating around Bob Woodward this morning. (Snip) But the White House also wanted the issue to disappear until after the election, so in conjunction with Congress it proposed (and the President specifically endorsed) an enforcement mechanism called sequestration. In exchange for agreeing to a package of $1.2T in cuts with no revenues as a failsafe, Republicans agreed to raise the debt limit high enough that it would not be reached until after the election. The significant point is that the trigger for sequestration was not the same date as the implementation date.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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.

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
