Here’s a quick recap of today’s news:
The two men who were considered suspects, whose photo was released by CNN and New York Post, were refuted this morning by Drudge Report: “I didn’t Do it” read the headline, the link was to the story below.
This poor kid was being accused of Domestic Terrorism (that’s what I’m calling it even though no official word from Obama’s White House or FBI has even called it that) and turned himself in to authorities to prove he was not a bomber he is a runner who was there to watch the race! Apparently the huge lobby from the Neo-cons to predetermine every heinous act of violence done on American soil must be done by Al Qaeda has been successful. The brainwashed religious right was right there to jump to the conclusion that the Boston Bombings were committed by Islamic Terrorists. This sickens me, especially in light of all the readily available information and the fact that other activities within the US point to a Domestic Terror act, but I’m getting ahead of myself here, and I already wrote my theory here.
After the MSM spent the better half of the morning back tracking on these two men they no sooner turned their glazed eyes over to Barack Obama in Boston for the “LIvE” feed of him at an Interfaith service for the Boston Marathon Victims.
I had the misfortune of watching it live and had to hear the Potus quote scripture. The man is in direct opposition to God’s word so it does bother me just a smidge when he quotes from it. As one fellow tweeter put it, “When Obama quotes the bible it’s sacrilege.” He sounded like he was campaigning, or in the least stumping and that’s just low even for Obama it’s low. We runners run for reasons not political and we don’t need Potus giving pep talks and giving us new running slogans. Moving on…
Next up, while everyone was distracted with Obama’s “Spirit” rally there was a vote in the House on a gun measure, Barrasso #717 (privacy) amendment to S.649 (AKA Reid’s Gun Control bill), it is related to the Gun Bill that was voted on yesterday. Much of the gnarly parts of the bill were shot down yesterday, seven out of nine amendments were voted on yesterday, two remained today to be voted on. #717 had to do with keeping gun owners privacy and it was voted in favor, so it was good it passed. I haven’t checked back on the last piece that needed a vote.
“WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), successfully included an amendment to (S. 649) that protects law abiding gun owners across the nation from having their private gun ownership information released to the public. The amendment passed the Senate by a vote of 67 to 30.
Barrasso’s amendment # 717 specifically withholds 5-percent of Community Oriented Policing Services program funding if a state or local government publicly releases information on individuals that have licenses to purchase, possess, or carry firearms. The withheld money will be redistributed to compliant states. The amendment also has a criminal investigation and court proceedings exception.” ;-) yeah finally some good news. Source Here.
Wait more bad news! #CISPA passed today also. This CISPA, or H.R. 624, was presented by a Republican and a Democrat. It passed; however, it is not a favored piece of legislation by the LEFT. Weird I know. This same piece of legislation has had a make-over and it is a sort of triple cross. The original CISPA was opposed by Ron Paul at one time. Where is that guy by the way? Today’s CISPA was rewritten by a bi-partisan group and was passed even though Barack Obama threatened to Veto it if it passed. But why would he VETO it if he already passed an Executive Order Cyber security Law that never went to the house? Wouldn’t that mean he looks opposed to something he’s not truly opposed to, and doesn’t that make the Republicans look equally hypocritical since they acted opposed to Obama’s version of CISPA but rewrote one of their own? It appears as if both parties are in favor of prying into our private internet activities. But wait, China’s spying on us and stealing our pattens and trade secrets, that is why it is crucial to US Government security that they have the ability to read and store your emails and tweets. Because you may not know it, but you my friend are a spy!
If you don’t believe you’re a spy, maybe invoking the Boston Bombing would cause you to vote for CISPA (the 4th amendment shredder)? Congressman Mike McCaul did so this morning:
“But perhaps the most eyebrow-raising comments of all came from Texas Republican Mike McCaul, who invoked the Boston bombings on the House floor this morning to argue why passing the bill was so important.
“What recent events in Boston demonstrate is that we have to come together, as Republicans and Democrats, to get this done in the name of national security. And this case in Boston, they were real bombs, explosive devices–in this case, they’re digital bombs. And these digital bombs are on their way.” Source: Mediaite
The Real Bombers? FBI Released the images of two suspects (not the above “middle eastern looking” men) who are for sure this time, the real bombers of the Boston Marathon.
Pardon my suspicion and pessimism in not believing what the FBI says. I would ask my readers to simply reflect on Benghazi. Remember that the whole DOD, White House Administration, Secretary of State, the State Department, claimed the cause of the attack on US Ambassador in Benghazi Libya had to do with a Youtube video. Ok, I rest my case.
If you can’t remember that story I present to you misinformation piece #2 in the case of Identifying the Boston Bombers (misinformation piece #1 was the first story on this post)
The Associated Press released this tweet yesterday, Wednesday April 17, 2013 that a suspect was taken into custody and was on their way to the Federal Court in Boston!
A lot of mis/dis-information is spewing out. The FBI claims it has video of one of the two most recent suspects leaving one of the bombs (pressure cookers) at one of the respective explosion sites.
I say, “Release the video.” Right now the FBI released this video of the two men walking with their backpacks in the crowd. Still photos of the same men show that there are many others in the crowd with Black backpacks. But we are to believe these two men are the bombers. Although I don’t want to post their photo here I will link to it so you can see for yourself if you live under a rock and haven’t seen the photo yet. Here’s the FBI’s video:
If you really want your head to spin this website (4chan) has a ton of pictures of people who have black backpacks and look out of place. I see the one I posted yesterday is on this site too, hence, the photo I posted is probably mis/dis-isnfo provided to me via google. They can flood the internet with tons of bunny trails you know. Oh, I said, “they.” My bad! Now I sound like a conspiracy theorist.
Last story of the day, for N4TM to report on, is the Explosion in “West” Texas. This explosion at a Fertilizer Plant resulted in a measured 2.1 magnitude on the Richter scale, and has seen little light of day on MSM.
“A massive explosion has rocked a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas. Dozens have been confirmed killed, while authorities are reportedly warning residents that they should evacuate town as soon as possible.
The explosion occurred around 7:50pm local time in the town of West, north of Waco. A fireball of nearly 100 feet high has been reported along with a massive power outage.
“Law enforcement is advising residents to leave town immediately,” West’s school district tweeted, potentially due to fears of another explosion.
Seventy people had been confirmed killed by the blast by late evening Thursday, as reported by KHOU, the local CBS News affiliate, with “hundreds injured.” Local news KXXV reports that among the dead are five firefighters and one police officer. State officials have yet to confirm these numbers.
Sixty-one others have been confirmed as admitted to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco, just one of the multiple emergency facilities in the area.” Source RT
The Texas Explosion is of course “not related” to the Boston Bombings. As I’m sure this isn’t either: Costa Mesa man blew himself up according to police (on April 15,2013 5:54am PST)
