Update VII: We wonder if the cancelled FBI press conferences are because Barack Obama wants to break the news of progress in the investigation when he torments Boston with a visit tomorrow. Just wonderin’ and a thinkin’.
This wacko day ends perfectly with a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in of all places Waco, Texas. David Koresh, Branch Davidians, April 19, yikes! We believe it is all totally unrelated but still… won’t be able to say suspicious minds are all wrong because… well, who could think such a coincidence could happen.
White Rabbit David Sirota and Matthews O’Tingles must certainly be happy that the Ricin letter guy is a white American but unfortunately for them Ricin guy is also a Dimocrat that comments on Huff n’ Puff.
Barky’s having a bad day and getting worse. What else could go wrong for the lame duck? Really. What else could go wrong?
Update VI: A quick note on other exploding bombs – political bombs for the lame duck. ObamaCare is still a slow motion video bomb exploding. And that’s from someone who helped Obama pass that scam.
The other political bomb exploding in Obama’s face is Toomey/Manchin (vote taking place right now at 4:15 pm). Toomey/Manchin is going down and Reid will likely announce he will pull the entire bill at a 5:00 press conference (after all the amendment votes) – just as the Boston Bomber press conference takes place.
It can get worse for Obomba. If the Coryn or Grassley amendments pass, Obama might have to veto gun legislation and take the blame for the impasse after he forced these tough votes on red state candidates from his own party.
C-Span 2 has the gruesome votes. At 5:00 it will be dueling pressers with Boston beating Reid.
Update V: Caught? The public, via the internet, might be the ones who catch this public enemy – the Boston Bomber. Um, yup, Breaking: CNN says feds believe they’ve identified a suspect in the Boston bombing.
We strongly suggest you check out the 4Chan people and the interesting photos on their website HERE. Scroll down there are some intriguing photos in which you see the bulge of what could very well be a pressure cooker in a backpack. Great work ladies and gentlemen.
Boston Globe reports that an arrest is thisclose. Correction, evencloserthanthat. SoCloseTheArrestOfBostonBomberSuspect – CAUGHT.
Update IV: Is Michelle a suspect? After all there is only so much she can take being married to a lunkhead. Seriously though, Obama must be furious that he is an afterthought and not the main attraction on this news that is breaking: Second ricin letter addressed to White House, suspicious package alert in Senate office. Obama always wants to be the bride at the wedding and the corpse at the funeral so he can’t be happy that Representative Wicker got a Ricen letter first. Be careful Barack. It’s not blow. Don’t snort it.
Don’t you feel extra secure these days with Barack Obama in charge?
Update III: That white rabbit David Sirota has lost all logic and proportion. Almost as if responding to many of the arguments we made in our last two articles, Sirota declares we should all want the Boston Bomber to be white and American. Sirota is race-baiting again as he did during the Newtown killings.
Sirota’s argument (borrowed from equally white rabbit Tim Wise) is that if white Catholics kill we don’t bomb the Vatican and if white Irish people kill we don’t bomb Dublin. It escapes this white rabbit that neither the Vatican nor the government of Dublin condone terrorist attacks in America like, let’s say, Afghanistan’s government did during 9/11.
White rabbit David Sirota is using his white privilege to say stupid things and pretend he is a homey bro but he is just a race-baiting culture vulture. The mockery on twitter has already begun against the white rabbit.
What do left wing DailyKooks like Sirota and right wing Kooks have in common? They’re kooks.
Update II: DailyKooks and Matthews O’Tingles take note. What we wrote yesterday in an update and follow up in today’s article is holding up. We wrote yesterday and write today that the Boston Marathon terror attack does not make sense as a right wing anti tax explosion. The Southern Poverty Law Center can usually be relied on to blame the blameless but even they don’t think it is the work of a domestic issue terrorist:
“When you think about it, the target is not clear,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center. “What the target was not was the government, or the IRS, or a minority group—black people, gay people, Muslims, immigrants, Latinos, and so on. It wasn’t targeted at any sort of specific subgroup.”
Mark Pitcavage, the director of investigative research for the Anti-Defamation League, agreed, saying this target didn’t feel like the work of extreme right-wing terrorists since it had no clear connection to the government.
“The bottom line is that no domestic extremist movement just based on their ideology alone would have a huge reason to attack the Boston Marathon,” Pitcavage said.
Today the experts skeptical that Boston bomber comes from a domestic terrorist group opinion we expressed yesterday is gaining adherents:
Didn’t Eric Rudolph bomb random civilians at a concert during the Olympics, an event kinda sorta like the Boston Marathon? Sure, says National Journal — but he wasn’t part of a group. Their real argument here, in other words, isn’t that a domestic terrorist didn’t do it, it’s that if one did, he probably wasn’t being sponsored or supported somehow by an organization. (BuzzFeed actually dialed up a few militias this morning and got denunciations of the Boston attack across the board.) Note that well, because if the bomber turns out to be domestic, the idea that he doesn’t represent any larger movement will instantly go straight into the toilet.
The Muslim Brotherhood is, of course, blaming the Joos.
Update: This certainly fits in with today’s article. Breaking: Letter sent to GOP Sen. Roger Wicker tests positive for Ricin. It will be painful to hear what Matthews O’Tingles and the DailyKooks will come up with to explain this potential, or not, follow-up attack but this time on a Republican conservative. Still blaming the Tea Party you DailyKooks?
BTW, this does not appear to be a Boston Marathon related event but again, who knows? This looks more like an unrelated event. Still, even if this is not coordinated with the Boston terror attack this does increase anxiety levels. Best way to fight terror attacks is don’t be terrorized, don’t be frightened away – especially from your rights as an American citizen.
Imagine for a moment, as the most fevered Obama dimwits – including according to David Axelrod what Barack Obama himself imagines – that a right wing tax protesting gun rights teabaggin’ party Sarah Palin lovin’ birther Mitt Romney voter exploded those bombs at the Boston Marathon yesterday. Imagine that and ask yourself what would have happened immediately after the culprit was exposed.
We have no doubt that immediately every Tea Party organization and activist along with every tax protestor, Sarah Palin herself and her active supporters, Second Amendment NRA type, along with all of the above would immediately issue a heartfelt, sincere, unvarnished, and absolute repudiation of the Boston Marathon bombing. We don’t doubt that. Not only would those organizations and individuals truly believe the bombing was heinous but they would also recognize that such a repulsive ugly act would be counterproductive to whatever political aims were meant to be espoused.
Yesterday however, Barack Obama Hopium Guzzlers like Matthews O’Tingles not only stated that it was this sort of “home-grown” killer but indeed the O’Tingles Obama Hopium Choomers craved that the bombing killer be from the American right wing. It would be the icing on the cake to marginalize Americans who disagree with Barack Obama. It would serve Obama political interests. It would divide Americans instead of unite America.
If the culprit however, was a “Saudi” or a Middle Eastern type, or an Islamist terrorist, the Obama O’Tingles mob would be unhappy. This would once again expose their naivete and Obama’s policies as stupid. The grandma and little children gropers at the TSA would be under pressure once again to target their investigations toward more likely suspects. The Global War On Terror would be back on.
Worst yet for the Obama O’Tingles Big Media Hopium Guzzlers there would not be universal condemnation of the bombing from Muslims. Some small groups and honorable individual Muslims would condemn the bombing. Many American Muslims would be disgusted and know these bombings do not help Muslims or Islam. But larger groups and even entire countries in the Middle East would rejoice and instead of repudiations there would be celebrations at the Great Satan being attacked yet again.
The reason a Timothy McVeigh terror attack is not as significant as a terror attack from a Muslim terrorist is that there are extremely wealthy organizations and individuals, entire countries, world wide networks of terrorists that devote themselves to destruction of the United States and removal of the United States as a world power.
A lone bomber like Tim McVeigh is capable of horrid acts that kill many, but the networks and capabilities for many follow-up terror attacks are very limited and not likely to go much farther because the home grown terror network did not exist and the few that sympathized with McVeigh were not willing to follow in McVeigh’s death-dealing footsteps.
Tim McVeigh did commit a political terror attack which killed many. McVeigh was not a kook however in the sense that he did have political motivations and he did target a federal building which does make sense if you are anti-government. But why would an anti government person target runners in a race? Have we run out of federal buildings or post offices filled with people on tax day?
Compare McVeigh to the Kook Jared Loughner. For political purposes the DailyKooks Obama left wanted to turn Loughner into a political terrorist. We called him “Loner”, and derided the politically motivated DailyKooks attempt to make him a politically motivated killer and we were right. The Obama DailyKooks left wanted to turn him into a gun control festival. But one look at that nut and Americans knew he was not anything but a nut.
A nut or a purposeful terrorist of whatever variety it is still very disturbing that bombs exploded in a place with much police activity. However this happened, Barack Obama, the city officials of Boston, and the leadership of Massachusetts still has a lot to answer for. Why with all the security was this allowed to happen? Bromides such as “we have to be correct 100% of the time they only have to be right once” are not going to cut it. Enough money has been spent and contrary to the latest political excuse makers (which we mocked yesterday) the sequester is not to blame.
So what happened? Why did it happen? Who is to blame?
It is a truism that many initial reports in events such as yesterday’s or in the “fog of war” are incorrect. But that does not mean some basic facts should be denied. Yesterday Barack Obama did not call it “terror”. Barack Obama has not wanted to use the word terror and specifically issued orders to stop government officials from referring to the Global War on Terror. “Terror” as a diagnosis has been removed.
But as any doctor or any patient can attest, the correct diagnosis leads to the correct treatment. An incorrect diagnosis can get you killed.
Imagine if you go to a hospital with your legs blown off after a bomb explodes and the doctor’s diagnosis is “high blood pressure”. You’d get rid of that doctor immediately.
If a home inspector says your house is under a sinkhole but the real problem is termites you’d get rid of that idiot too. You have to identify the problem before you can fix it.
If there is a terror attack you should call it a terror attack and proceed accordingly. But as in Fort Hood Barack Obama runs away from the word “terror” especially when the attack is successful. The hated George W. Bush did not have a terror attack on American soil after 9/11 so how can the golden calf Obama ever possibly do anything worse than George W. Bush?
Yesterday there were reports of pipe bombs and unexploded other bombs. Those reports were not accurate. Today we have a new report: Boston bomber used at least one pressure-cooker IED. These cookware bombs have terror pedigrees in “Nepal, Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. They were used in the 2006 Mumbai attack, and a very crude version was part of the car-bomb attempt in Times Square in 2010.” Who knew pressure cookers are so popular with terrorists?
Of course with the internet terrorists cookbooks can be read by anyone so we should not rule out anybody. Still, it is terror. But yesterday other than here, “terror” was verboten, the word not to be spoken. Obama apologists Sam Stein, Tommy Vietor, David Corn, Nate Silver, and Chuckie Todd, took to twittering tweets to defend Obama’s allergy to “terror”:
The race to call this a terrorist act confounds me. What is the downside of waiting for more information first?— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) April 15, 2013
There isn’t one MT @samsteinhp: race to call this a terrorist act confounds me. What is the downside of waiting for more information first?— Tommy Vietor (@TVietor08) April 15, 2013
What matters: 1) who did it; 2) how they did it; 3) why they did it. What doesn’t matter: what we call it.— Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) April 15, 2013
Here’s a question: is an act of terror necessarily. terrorism?— David Corn (@DavidCornDC) April 15, 2013
Most important thing POTUS did not say: he did not use the word “terrorism.” Admin being very careful— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) April 15, 2013
Why call “terror” terror as soon as you see it? Because the diagnosis matters. The correct diagnosis is the first step to the cure. And that’s the problem that leads these Obama apologists to be so confounded and bewildered. They don’t want the cure, they want to protect their precious, their Obama.
Obama? Today Barack still did not really call it terror. Obama: The FBI is investigating the Boston bombing as an “act of terrorism”. Obama also gave the definition of terror we provided yesterday. But Obama still has not said yesterday’s Boston Marathon attack was a terror attack. That matters because it tells us Barack Obama is more worried about Barack Obama and his publicity stunts than about anything or anyone else.
