Why Obama Didn’t Say ‘Terror’ And Why It Matters

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.

    We’re all Boston Marathon runners today!

    Terrorism Expert: I’m Running Next Year. Who’s With Me?

    A Boston College professor plans to practice what he teaches next year when he runs the Boston Marathon for the first time.

    Peter Krause, an assistant professor who studies the impact of terrorism and who has never run more than five consecutive miles, told students in a letter to the Boston College Heights that they can best temper the psychological trauma associated with Monday’s bombings by ensuring the 2014 marathon breaks participation and attendance records.

    “The people who did this may have picked a good target for notoriety, but they picked a terrible target to have any negative political or social impact,” he wrote.

    He said that law enforcement officers are responsible for delivering justice, but a community can contain or reframe the attack’s impact.

    “I hate to run and have never run more than five miles in my entire life, but I am running the Boston Marathon next year and I am raising money to send to the victims of this tragedy and the first responders who prevented an even greater one. Who is with me?” he wrote.

  4. Saw a very revealing piece on Reuters about the Boston Massacre yesterday and it had a number of interesting revelations. Not the least of which was in the comments… one reader said, “Obama has made the United States into a punching bag”. A very apt description of what this clown has done to our country.

    He was absolutely right. The bombs on Boylston Street were the ultimate expression of cowardice. They were directed at helpless, unaware people who had no particular political persuasions, no overt feelings against muslims or anyone else. The cruelty and selfishness of these self styled “heroes of revolution” reveal all too completely their bankrupt humanity. They demonstrate, by their perfidy, that they have no claim to decency or nobility. They are animals.

    They represent what is so terribly wrong with our culture in this enlightened 21st Century. It began in the 60’s with the nihilism and self obsession of so many of the Obamas and the Bill Ayers’ and it has only gotten worse as the overwhelming indulgence of the young has mounted, their sense of entitlement engorged and their fecklessness magnified by opportunists like Barky. An expert of manipulating a system of affirmative action which he did not invent, he inherited a scheme that gave him precisely the edge he needed to get advantages without having to work for them.

    The sad fact is that it makes little difference whether the poltroons who set off the bombs in Boston are from Saudi Arabia or Cleveland. Our humanity has suffered such cruel losses and insults that we can scarcely care for each other in ways which used to be routine. We have lost something precious and it will be a long time before we can regain it. Surely with leadership like we have now it is utterly impossible because they personify the Bad Guys and we have no heroes.

  5. You can tell by the silence of the lamestream media that the guilty are those dear to Bar-rack-O-Bama. Stinkin’ lame cowardly POTUS and his stinkin’ cowardly foreign buddies. More lies to follow. Gack! How can Barry stand with that spine of jello and innards of hot air?

    They know already and are just trying to figure how to spin this one.

    “There’s no question some of these objects were implanted in the device for the purpose of being exploded when the device went off,” said Dr. Ron Walls, Brigham & Women’s chair of emergency medicine.

    They are “ball-bearing type” objects, “just a little larger than a BB,” said Walls, describing metallic beads about two to three millimeters in diameter. Surgeons also removed more than a dozen small “carpenter-type nails” about a centimeter to an inch in length from one patient, he said. [snip]

    At Boston Medical Center, five patients had their limbs amputated and others endured abdominal surgery after being wounded by what Dr. Andrew Ulrich, executive vice chairman of BMC’s Department of Emergency Medicine called “scrap metal like material.”

    All told, Boston Medical Center took in 23 blast-related patients. Today, BMC still had 19 of those patients in their care. Ten of them are in critical condition, and three others are in three serious, said BMC trauma surgeon Dr. Tracey Dechert.

    “The vast majority were low extremity patients, some of them had what we call traumatic amputations, due obviously to the bomb,” Dechert said. “Others had mangled extremities to the point that they we and those patients obviously required operations, and still will require operations.”

  7. Giulani just said on Fox he thought it was a domestic terrorist. Not to imply it was a right wing group.

  8. The Uppity Woman website will love the end of this uneducated column by Margaret Carlson:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-16/could-hillary-clinton-be-america-s-thatcher-.html

    One way to look at 2008 is to say that Clinton was hit by a tsunami called Obama. Another is to conclude that voters were readier to embrace an enigmatic, untested, first-term senator than the nation’s leading female politician. She lost in 2008 because in the U.S., unlike the U.K., we still don’t know what to do with an uppity woman.

    Almost right, this person forgot to mention that this untested, first-term senator would never have been pushed into the WhiteHouse if he was not African American. Only 50% of his DNA made him the poster boy for their goal. No white man, or any other nationality would have been given a free pass, but now, their next attempt might be to give a free pass to a Latino male, then an Asian male, then a X,Y&Z male, until all the nationalities are used…then, maybe then they will think of woman as deserving.

    Creeps, crooks and idiots.

  11. Wbboei, they are two orphan bombs. No one wants to claim them. Years from now Obama will be the bomb no one wants to claim.

  12. Admin, thank you for being the voice of reason in the blame game being played by the Kooks and other Obamanuts on the the Crazy-ass Left, which is every bit as negative a force in this country as the Crazy-ass Right. It’s hard to believe that Kooks can scrape up more than 6 or 7 true believers. Same goes for Tingle Thighs and the others of MSNBC. Neither group seems capable of rational thought, having cast aside any semblance of reason. The application of reason to their demented premises and theories would render them invalid, hampering the Crazy-ass Leftists’ ability to function as a propaganda machine for their leader and master – Barack.
    They have only one goal: Support Barack and praise him and his policies to the masses, wherever the cost. What they haven’t realized yet is jus how great the cost has been to their credibility and reputations.

    Thanks to Big Pink (and a few other reliable sources) for continuing to educate and inform, documenting, preserving and presenting the misinformation and propaganda coming from the minds and key boards of these Obamanuts.

    The COMEX will default in the next week or several weeks and people will be “settled” with Dollars, no more metal will be delivered!

    Last Thursday president Obama met with 15 heads of the biggest banks and brokers in the country, THIS was discussed as sure as the Sun came up this morning: we have hit the bottom of the barrel! Reserves that could be fed into the market are and have dried up at the same time that production has dropped and future production delayed. The paper game is blowing up …RIGHT NOW and the topic of discussion at the White House was about “how it would play out”.

  14. I’ve seen Obama’s recent declaration of the meaning of terrorism printed in several places and it is always this:
    “Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it’s an act of terror,” he said.
    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/obama-labels-boston-bombings-act-terror-article-1.1318156

    However dictionary dot com cites this as #1, and it certainly is the definition I’ve understood it to be for much of my life: terrorism: the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

    Clearly he is attempting to make the case that #FtHood does not qualify. There were no bombs at Fort Hood. And could we really call troops civilians?

  15. Boehner’s hand forced on Benghazi
    By Julian Pecquet – 04/17/13
    …A growing number of lawmakers – 101 so far – have signed on to a resolution from Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) demanding that the House create a 19-member select committee to look into the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11, 2012.
    At this point, I think that the standing committees of the House, whether they be the Oversight Committee or the Intelligence Committee, are working diligently on these issues,” Boehner said last year after Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) endorsed the idea in the Senate.
    …But the idea is gaining traction among the Republican grass roots: Members of conservative groups such as Revive America have been flooding lawmakers’ phone lines.
    The mother of slain State Department employee Sean Smith and 700 special operations veterans endorsed Wolf’s proposal two weeks ago. On Wednesday, Wolf is scheduled to hold a press conference with the father of former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, a CIA contractor killed in the attack.
    “I don’t think very much has been done,” Wolf said Tuesday. “We need to form a select committee, and Congress has failed them….”

  17. Well, the left, meaning big media other Satan disciples have given it their usual there is not war on terrorism, this is a criminal law matter which civilian courts should handle, tea parties are at fault, and all the rest of the cloud cuckoo land nonsense they are infamous for while a public too dumb to spit sits by in tacit approval. Just how many chickens must come home to roost before Pavlov’s dog figures out what the game is? It is an imponderable. It is also a failure of leadership writ large. Obama is the antithesis of leadership, and we are all the worse for it. His administation is nothing more than a puppet show based on the Chavel and Fidel model. But the public at large does not get it. More is the pity for that.

  18. BTW, we should note that the Toomey/Manchin gun control measure is going down today even as Obama is doing lap dances to try and get votes for it. But Obama is a croaking lame duck. It appears the Republican strategy to abandon the filibuster and instead force red state Dimocrats to vote for gun control in anticipation of 2014 has worked.

    The eventual senate legislation might be a measure that forces all states to respect conceal carry licenses from other states. This would mean that Barack Obama would have to veto his own gun control bill. What a stupid lame duck he will look like then.

  19. Sirota declares we should all want the Boston Bomber to be white and American
    ——————–
    The man is a race obsessed Nazi. He is so invested in his perverted narrative that the truth does not matter.

  20. The reason I say worse, is because when a so called journalist descends downward through the dark caverns of hell, from objectivity, to partisanship, to propaganda, to outright lies, to creating an inferno so he can incite the blind mob into acts of violence, he must be condemned for what he is. He is a destroyer of worlds. That is where leftists like him are taking this country. No doubt about it.

  21. What seems to drive leftist journalists like Sirota, Corn and their ilk is not truth, not the welfare of society, but the quest for power, and influence and celebrity. They have no standards. At other moments in our history, they never would have gained traction or a podium to spew their hatred.

  23. 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?

  24. The final point I would make about leftist journalists is this. Yesterday, I posted a report showing that in the last 10 horrific events, big media and these leftist journalists have blamed either the tea party, evangelicals or white people in general, only to be proven wrong in each case, and now thanks to CNN it is happening again in this case, and through the efforts of left wing loons like Sirota, you begin to realize what the real game is. It is not really a case of assuming, it is a case of SCAPEGOATING. It therefore follows that at some level these people are playing the same game as Hitler, and when that happens over and over and over as it most definitely does with them, it perverts the public mind, and undermines to rule of law.

  25. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted a letter addressed to President Barack Obama that contained a “suspicious substance.”

    A law enforcement official said the letter is very similar to one recently mailed to Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker. That letter tested positive Tuesday for poisonous ricin.

    The official requested anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation.

    http://news.yahoo.com/secret-suspicious-letter-mailed-obama-152216889–politics.html

    ——
    If ricin is in the Obama letter, this is what might happen:

    – No one in the public will hear about it, keep moving…nothing going on here.

    – The kooks will claim it’s a white, Tea Party male that hates Obama because he is black.

    – They will claim the ricin came from a white, American cook that used his pressure cooker in the Marathon bombings

  26. Shadowfax, we took a lighthearted angle to this Ricen story and warned Obama not to snort it – we even named a possible suspect.

  27. BREAKING NEW:

    Parts of the U.S. Capitol are being cleared after authorities announced suspicious packages on the first and third floors of the Hart Senate Office Building and a suspicious envelope in the Russell Senate Office Building at the office of Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama.

    Capitol Hill Police are questioning a man with a backpack in the area of the Hart office building. The man raised suspicion with the content of his backpack and how he responded to police questions, two Capitol Hill police officers said. The man’s backpack contained more sealed envelopes, one of the officers said.

    One of the Capitol Hill police officers on the scene said the backpack is being X-rayed.

  28. Yup, dead as a doornail. The Republican anti-lame duck strategy looks like it will work. Republicans allowed a cloture vote filibuster to fail knowing they could filibuster later. Now they are in a win/win against the lame duck who won’t/can’t do a thing to bring back jobs and the economy:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2013/04/17/breaking-ayotte-a-no-on-manchin-toomey/

    Presumably, Joe Manchin already knew this when he threw in the towel on his bipartisan compromise with Pat Toomey earlier today, but the announcement all but guarantees the demise of Democratic gun-control proposals scheduled for votes today. The “defection,” if it can be called that, of a Republican who voted to allow debate on the bill will make it very difficult to convince red-state Democrats like Mark Pryor to support it — especially since it’s clear that it will go down to defeat. Why risk the ire of 2014 voters just to back a failure?

    If you missed it last night, go now and read Allahpundit’s explanation of Ayotte’s influence on the Senate Republican caucus, and how Ayotte signaled this from the beginning. It now puts Democrats on defense, because the GOP didn’t just sit back and say, “No.” They have an amendment of their own to counter Manchin-Toomey that addresses mental-health reporting in the existing background-check system, as well as authorizing better enforcement of it.

    With the bottom falling out from under the entirely non-sequitur attempt to link background-check gaps to Newtown, in which background checks actually stopped the shooter from buying weapons legally, will Democrats support a solution that actually addresses some of the issues of the incident they’ve been citing as their inspiration? Or will they kill the GOP amendment and leave themselves open to the same accusation they intended to level against Republicans in the event of failure of the bill? If the Senate passes it, don’t expect Barack Obama to veto it and put himself in that position.

  29. Is that Barry running down the hall with his hair on fire…trying to keep the media from reporting all the terrorist acts going on at the same time??

    Now Axelmustache is searching the internets for an excuse, a movie, a tea party person, any thing to deflect blame for Barry’s incompetence.

  30. BREAKING: @abc has learned a SECOND letter sent to the US Senate has tested positive for the poison ricin.

  31. Leonora, we must ban pressure cooker lids!
    *******

    Absolutely! I’ve always been afraid of those damn things!

  32. Breaking News:

    Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN’s John King.

    The source said what officials believe is a breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, this source said.

    From that analysis, the source said, authorities believe that they have identified a suspect.

    The source declined to be more specific but called it a significant development.

    Big Break in Bombing Case: Suspect Has Been Clearly Identified Using Video from Day of Marathon
    —Ace

    Sources say they’ve “identified” a suspect based on a review of video from Boston TV and from the Lord & Taylor department store’s CCTV.

    I don’t know if they mean they’ve identified the suspect visually, or if they’ve matched a name to the suspect.

    CNN is being careful about offending people, but will allow the suspect is “dark skinned.”

    The 4chan guys have been looking at video and they think they’ve found someone who left one of the two bombs. The suspected package they’re focusing on is a black backpack, which appears overstuffed. Their suspect appears to be Middle Eastern.

    Picture here: http://i.imgur.com/aCjGrD0h.jpg

  34. …only a matter of time…

    and the Daily Kooks, Matthews, Sirota and the rest of the old crew will find a way to come full circle and blame the bombing and ricin on Bill and Hillary…

  35. BREAKING NEWS:

    Video from Lord and Tayler have given authories informaton, and they are close to an arrest.

  36. 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.

    >An arrest has been made in the Boston bombings investigation based on two videos showing images of the suspect, a federal law enforcement source told CNN’s Fran Townsend. [snip]

    The breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source, who declined to be more specific but called it a significant development.

    Earlier, a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation told CNN that a lid to a pressure cooker thought to have been used in the bombings had been found on a roof of a building near the scene.

    Authorities investigating the Boston Marathon bombing said Wednesday they have developed “solid leads” and identified “a number of people” they want to talk to after viewing hundreds of hours of video, with one or two standing out.

    Senior officials told NBC News that they were not prepared to characterize those individuals as suspects.

    We are zeroing in on some people,” an official said.

    Investigators analyzing photos and video have found people carrying black backpacks and duffel bags and setting them down in the area where the bombs went off, officials said.

    More pictures here from the 4chan people (basically the general public looking at photos and contributing their analysis)

    ——
    Wow, shows that more than one, lone, crazy (white Tea Party) person did this (as I expected).

    One guy in a turquoise jacket, one guy in a white baseball cap, black jacket and black shirt, and a third guy with a beard. Two of the guys are dressed like military twins, black jackets, getting instructions on cell phones, tan pants, tan shoes…

  40. Is this smelling of a piss fest? One moment they have the guy, the next it’s a no go from the DOJ. What gives?

    @ Admin

    Quite possible.

  41. From Twitter

    Moments ago at Moakley Courthouse, media asked to move back, DHS vehicles arrive & courthouse now under evacuation.

  42. Mcnorman,

    Boston news said that it takes a lot of hoops to jump though to make an arrest…maybe that’s why?

  43. @ shadowfax I can’t imagine communist network news wanting to take a hit on something like this?

  44. Communist network? (I am only listening to the live feed when I can, missed that.)

    My guess is this is somehow connected to the bombers network, or sympathizers.

  45. Shadowfax, when you wrote about canines sniffing at the courthouse, for a second we thought Ken Starr was back on the job. 🙂 But the courthouse isn’t panties. 🙂

    Anyways, to expand on what we asked below, the answer to the arrest then no arrest might be based on the decision regarding Miranda rights. If they (FBI, police) have the Boston Bomber they might not know what to do because Barack Obama is dithering again.

    If the Boston Bomber is caught they have to decide on whether to arrest hims/hers and thereby read Miranda rights and then the creep/creeps won’t talk without lawyers present. Or, they could keep the creep/creeps and send hims/hers to Gitmo until they are sure there is no plot from overseas terror organizations. This last option would be a political bomb for Barack.

  46. Funny, the media was told to move back 100 feet, so they moved back 1.5 car lengths. They better hope there is no bomb at the courthouse.

  47. McNorman, you might be right. It does seem they have the person (because of reports on the cell phone tracking and the CCTV pictures) but it was not supposed to get out. It got out and then clowns started making crank calls to the courthouse about more bombs and things are a mess.

  48. Admin, panties 😉

    From the photos posted earlier, there is more than one suspect…maybe that complicates the issue with the other/s still out there?

    First time the court house has ever had a ‘code red’ bomb threat.

  49. @ Admin and Shadofax

    Security presence is unprecedented. They sure wouldn’t do that for just any Bozo, right? Why so much? Boston live news speculates that they were preparing for something big.

  50. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/fbi-appeals-help-solving-marathon-bombings

    A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press that a suspect was in custody. The official, who was not authorized to divulge details of the investigation, said the suspect was expected in federal court.

    But FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston said no arrests had been made.

    “Contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack,” the FBI said in a statement. “Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.”

    The official who spoke to the AP did so on condition of anonymity and stood by the information even after it was disputed. A news briefing was scheduled later Wednesday.

  51. IMO…Yeah, they are chatting with someone and haven’t quite figured out how to proceed. Waiting for a call from ValJar.

  52. Speaking of exploding bombs:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/joe-manchin-pat-toomey-gun-control-background-checks-bill-90199.html?hp=f1

    Hours before a vote that will decide the fate of gun control legislation, a deal to pass tougher background checks on many gun sales is on the verge of defeat on the Senate floor.

    That deal — assembled by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) — represents gun-control advocates best chance of passing meaningful legislation at this time and faces a vote at 4 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon. Families of the those who were killed in Newtown, Conn. and Aurora, Colo., and at Virginia Tech will be present for the vote, as well as the mom of Gabe Zimmerman, who was killed in the same shooting that seriously injured ex-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

    After lobbying by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Giffords, the legislation appears to have fallen short of the 60 votes it needs to be adopted by senators.

    If the deal fails as seems almost certain, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will hold a press conference at 5 p.m. where he is expected to announce he will pull the gun bill from the Senate floor after the amendment process plays out. None of the controversial amendments are expected to pass, according to Democratic and Republican senators and aides.

    Toomey is speaking now and the Senate vote will follow.

    Speaking of exploding bombs: Ocare
    **************************************************

    they (Congress, Sibelious, O ) are just catching on to that now…oh man, are they in for it…wait for O supporters to pick up pitch forks because they have to pay for O care like it or not…and say good bye to your doctors…and forget about enough doctors accepting medicare for it to be worth anything…

    …and that’s if you can even find doctors as they retire and decide to do something else rather than be a slave to Ocare…

  54. 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.

    —————————————————————-

  55. One 5:00 press conference cancelled McNorman, a 5:30 presser added. Obama at 5:30 on gun control presser.

    The GOP amendment failed and now it looks like nothing gets a green light. Expect Obomba to pout.

  56. Well then you’ll be happy Foxyladi14. This is going to be a poutathon. A classic in the annals of petulance.

    BTW, reports are now that the 5:00 presser in Boston is not cancelled but rather postponed. The new time should be announced soon.

  57. Andrea Tantaros says that indeed (see our earlier comment) the problem in Boston is whether to Mirandize or to send in the Gitmo team. Once Obama and Jarrett decide what to do with this bomb the police/FBI will be able to “arrest” the suspect not just hold him/her/them in custody.

  58. Cornyn amendment (would force all states to accept conceal/carry licenses issued in other states) came close. 57 votes for. Passage of this one would have given Bloomberg a heart attack. It’s almost 100% now that nothing passes and Obama pouts at 5:30 or whenever he does his press conference.

  59. Looks like several individuals involved in the bombing. Most look Middle Eastern. So much for home grown I think .Body type of a couple look straight from Iran. Jesus, some were even dressed alike.

    Our birthday is this Friday, April 19. We’ve gotten an early birthday gift from a pro Sarah Palin website:

    &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    Congratulations Admin and Happy Birthday Big Pink. 🙂

  61. admin, indeed a glorious tribute very much deserved. Just a small sample: “Hillary is 44” in full sail is a wonder and joy to behold.

  62. C’mon Foxyladi14, we’ve still got 48 hours before we age a year. Stop trying to make us older before our time. 🙂 When Friday comes we’ll call John Kerry and ask for the phone number of his army of Botox doctors. Until then we remain the same fresh faced Big Pink.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ8nPYSNobg

  63. I was enjoying the birthday present to Admin and Big Pink until I read the end of the brown blog:

    N.B. I supported Hillary through the primary campaigns
    and if she had won the nomination and Palin was not on the GOP ticket would have voted for her. In 2016 if Palin is not the nominee, and Hillary is the Dem’s I will vote only down ticket GOP no matter who the GOP nominee is. As much as I respect Hillary the pro-life and religious aspect of Palin’s life and philosophy is the supreme factor for me which precludes me support Clinton.

    I would vote for Sarah if she were the best candidate, unlike this Palin supporter that would not vote for Hillary if she where the best candidate.

    Religion over leadership…to me, those are poor choices.

  64. One down:

    http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/04/17/17794663-feds-arrest-suspect-in-ricin-positive-letters-sent-to-obama-senator?lite

    Federal agents on Wednesday arrested a suspect in the mailing of letters to President Barack Obama and a U.S. senator that initially tested positive for the poison ricin.

    The suspect was identified as Kenneth Curtis of Tupelo, Miss., federal officials told NBC News.

    Both letters carried an identical closing statement, according to an FBI bulletin obtained by NBC News on Wednesday.

    According to the FBI bulletin, both letters, postmarked April 8, 2013 out of Memphis, Tenn., included an identical phrase, “to see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

    In addition, both letters are signed: “I am KC and I approve this message.”

    At least one to go, in Boston.

  65. Up the road from me

    BREAKING: Massive Explosion At Fertilizer Plant Near Waco, Texas
    —DrewM.

    An unbelievable week is getting worse.

    The explosion was reported at around 7:50 p.m. in a frantic radio call from the scene of the fire at West Fertilizer at 1471 Jerry Mashek Dr. just off Interstate 35.
    Numerous injuries were reported and multiple ambulances were requested.

    Several buildings were reported destroyed and a nearby nursing home was damaged.

    There were reports that people were trapped in the nursing home and in an apartment building.

    Scanner traffic indicated that some residents of both the nursing home and apartment building were severely injured.

    A triage area was established at the intersection of Haven and North Reagan Streets.

    A number of buildings were reported to be burning, some in residential areas.

    West Middle School was one of the buildings reported to be on fire.

  66. Hope this link works, pic of the explosion in Waco, ENORMOUS!

    Wow! RT @passantino: New photo of fertilizer explosion in West, TX shows its immense size from distance pic.twitter.com/MRsRnFOUKp

    ACE

  67. An email I received
    >>>>>

    Dear ,

    Today, family members of victims of the Sandy Hook shooting watched as their elected Senators let them down. Victims of the Aurora tragedy, the Newtown tragedy, the Virginia Tech tragedy, and the thousands of random acts of gun violence that happen in our country every single day watched as a small number of U.S. Senators chose the deep pockets of the gun lobby over the safety of American citizens.

    We all watched as the Senate blocked common sense, bipartisan measures to expand background checks for gun buyers and curtail assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

    These measures would save lives. They are supported by a vast majority of Americans. But today they were blocked by a few selfish, out of touch Senators.

    Democratic leadership aides promised that the background check effort could be revived if the public demanded it. It’s time to make our voices heard.

    Tell the Senate that you support background checks — and you won’t forget their actions today.

    Thank you for taking action,

    Ellen B.

  68. Astonishing that now Waco is back in the news. Conspiracy theories will now pop up all over the place – with some justification because who can believe all that’s happened today?

  69. Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi, the quiet innocent 20 year old student being deported. Barry met with the Saudi foreign minister today.

  70. 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?

    —————————————————————–

  71. Our latest tweet:

    #Waco, #NRA, #BostonMarathon #ObamaCare Lame Duck Obama poll numbers and right track wrong track numbers headed south after a week like this

  72. Yipes, seems like an ugly puzzle.

    Waco compound fire ended April 19th in 1993…now it’s April in Waco and another huge fire is at a fertilizer company. Fertilizer is also used in McVeigh’s bomb in Oklahoma on April 19, 1995.

    Bombs, death, suffering, fires, ricin…all in just two days in April.

  73. This is not for the faint of heart. Video of the explosion at the plantin a town NORTH of Waco. This is another media-driven story. It didn’t happen at Waco.

    BTW, what the hell was this guy thinking with his kid in the truck?

  74. One more thing, Admin, anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing is on Friday.

    We are under siege again. If I was Oklahoma officials, I would be putting it on lock-down.
