Breaking News: Was there a terrorist attack in Boston? Two huge blasts rock Boston Marathon finish line | Boston Herald

by Stephen Levine on Monday, April 15th, 2013

This is article 485 of 802 in the topic Terrorism

One must wonder if the two explosions that disrupted the Boston Marathon are the work of domestic or foreign terrorists – how else can you explain the reports of two synchronized or “sympathetic” explosions?

Two huge blasts rock Boston Marathon finish line Monday, April 15, 2013

Two huge explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line at Copley Square just before 3 p.m. today, apparently causing numerous casualties on streets crowded with runners, spectators and post-race partiers.

“I saw two explosions. The first one was beyond the finish line. I heard a loud bang and I saw smoke rising,” said Herald reporter Chris Cassidy, who was running in the marathon.“I kept running and I heard behind me a loud bang. It looked like it was in a trash can or something. That one was in front of Abe and Louie’s. There are people who have been hit with debris, people with bloody foreheads.”

Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal who was at the Lenox Hotel near the scene, said, “It’s chaos down here. Two bombs just went off at the finish line within five seconds of each other. There must be casualties. Now I’m seeing fire trucks and ambulances racing down Boylston Street toward the scene.” Follow the story: Two huge blasts rock Boston Marathon finish line | Boston Herald

Nanny Bloomberg’s Latest Ridiculous Claim

by Doug Powers on Sunday, December 16th, 2012

This is article 195 of 341 in the topic Criminal Activity

Tragedy pimps need two things in order to succeed: A tragedy to exploit for their own political ends, and a good number of people who will believe absolutely ridiculous lies:

“It’s so unbelievable, and it only happens in America, and it happens again and again. There was another shooting yesterday, three people killed, I think, in a hospital. We kill people in schools, we kill them in hospitals, we kill them in religious organizations, we kill them when they’re young, we kill them when they’re old, and we’ve just got to stop this.”

It only happens in America… if you don’t count all these incidents.

We’ll never come close to figuring out how to cut down on the numbers of these horrible crimes as long as there are people like Michael Bloomberg being taken seriously in the debate.

But I guess this means Bloomberg will lead by example and have his security detail turn in their deadly guns, eh?

Benghazi Ambassadorial Staff: Obama Determined They Were Expendable

by Sher Zieve on Saturday, October 27th, 2012

This is article 405 of 802 in the topic Terrorism

U.S. Navy Seal Tyrone Woods

It was reported and revealed this morning on Fox News’ Happening Now Breaking news that the CIA in Benghazi, Libya had at least twice on 11 September 2012 requested from their superiors in the US help for the consulate’s employees. The CIA employees told the Obama official–who was likely already viewing the attacks live from the safety of his or her own offices–that Ambassador Stevens, his staff and 2 security people were in jeopardy of being killed by the ongoing Islamists’ assault.

The first time the Obama official was contacted for assistance, CIA Benghazi was told “No. Stand down!” 1-2 hours later, CIA Benghazi again contacted the Obama official again and begged for help they were again told to “stand down” and advised that no help would be forthcoming. The assault went on for 7 long–and torturous for those having to endure it–hours, during which time the CIA on the ground in Libya made several more calls for help. All of their requests for the lives of the Ambassadorial staff were refused. To make matters worse–if that’s even possible–the CIA employees on-site were told via the “stand down” order that they were not to help them, in any way whatsoever, either.

Ambassador Stevens and his staff were allowed–if not meant–to die. Obama is to blame. Any decision of the magnitude of this one–allowing the deaths of US citizens by apparent design and planning–would have to be authorized by the Commander-in-Chief. I have heard for the last 1-2 weeks and have reported on Radio two stories that may explain the reason for Obama’s belief that they had to die. First, there is the story–reported on 14 October by the NY Times–hat Stevens was assisting Obama on the supply of arms to Islamists in Syria. Second, there is the story that Obama planned to have Stevens “kidnapped” (so that Obama would step in as the “hero” and save him) but, the plan went awry.

Due to the upcoming elections, Obama could not be implicated in any additional scandal. But he was. And he now is.

Whatever the truth of this, there is an undeniable fact. Obama is responsible for the deaths of at least 4 US citizens in Benghazi. He is directly responsible. This is the highest form of “High crimes and misdemeanors,” as given in the definition of treason. Obama is guilty of it and is still being protected by a thoroughly corrupt media and many members of Congress. He belongs in prison…not our White House.

What are We-the-People going to do about it? What???

Even The Fed Doesn’t Believe It’ll Work

by Austin Hill on Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

This is article 47 of 56 in the topic Federal Reserve

Breaking news: officials in our U.S. Federal Government do not know how to solve all our woes.

This actually shouldn’t be “news.” Leaders from none other than the Federal Reserve, itself, have repeatedly admitted this in recent months.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has admitted this multiple times, and in a variety of different contexts (a point I’ll review momentarily). But last Wednesday, the President and C.E.O. of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas reiterated this point himself, and his announcements have largely been ignored.

In a Speech before the Harvard Club of New York City, bank President Richard Foster publicly restated his opposition to the Fed’s recent decision to launch “QE3,” its third attempt in three years to use monetary policy to stimulate the economy. Foster began his speech noting that “with each program we undertake to venture further in that direction (in the direction of using monetary policy as stimulus), we are sailing deeper into uncharted waters. We are blessed at the Fed with sophisticated econometric models and superb analysts. We can easily conjure up plausible theories as to what we will do when it comes to our next tack or eventually reversing course. The truth, however, is that nobody on the committee, nor on our staffs at the Board of Governors and the 12 Banks, really knows what is holding back the economy.”

Later in the speech, Mr. Foster noted that our economy “is already flush with $1.6 trillion in excess private bank reserves owned by the banking sector and held by the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. Trillions more are sitting on the sidelines in corporate coffers. On top of all that, a significant amount of underemployed cash—or fuel for investment—is burning a hole in the pockets of money market funds and other non-depository financial operators. This begs the question: Why would the Fed provision to shovel billions in additional liquidity into the economy’s boiler when so much is presently lying fallow?”

The economy is being held back despite trillions of dollars “lying fallow,” and the highly educated experts at the Federal Reserve can’t figure out why. Mr. Foster deserves our thanks for being so truthful – yet we should all be concerned about his observations.

Of course, it was only three months ago when Chairman Ben Bernanke admitted that he had “no idea” why our economy is so “fragile.” This is the man who has overseen the lending of more than $3 trillion American taxpayer dollars to foreign banks; the rapid-fire acquisition of the former giant Merrill Lynch by the gargantuan Bank of America; the multi-billion dollar taxpayer bailout of Wall Street; and – although he craft legislation or sign bills in to law, he nonetheless supported the $800 billion “economic stimulus bill” from the Congress and the Obama Administration.

And after all that – and before the latest stimulus effort announced less than two weeks ago – the Fed Chairman nonetheless admits that he has “no idea” what is wrong with our economy.

The talent, econometric models, and superb analysts at the Federal Reserve notwithstanding, Americans of all stripes need to come to grips with some basic economic realities.

Breaking News: Sheriff Arpaio Concludes Obama Birth Certificate is a Forgery – Video of Press Conference

by Shelley Hoelz on Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

This is article 77 of 81 in the topic Presidential Eligiblity

MSM is still covering this up. They refuse to report the findings in the investigation and are focused only on attacking Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Jerome Corsi and Mike Zullo. The instructions at the beginning of the press conference were clear, yet the media didn’t follow them. The media showed their ignorance in the questioning at the end of the conference; either they didn’t listen during the press conference and/or didn’t do their due diligence prior to the conference to understand any of the issues that surround the birth certificate issue. They show their lack of authentic journalistic investigation and instead show their true bias and willingness to cover up the crime taking place before the American public.

Here is the full press conference that took place in Arizona on July 17, 2012. The truth must get out.

MSNBC Genius of the Day: NASCAR Racers Go 500 Miles Per Hour

by Doug Powers on Friday, April 20th, 2012

NASCAR drivers, not unlike MSNBC hosts, get moving that fast by leaning forward:

NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France was a guest on MSNBC on Thursday to talk about the sport’s green initiatives in advance of Earth Day.

France was asked several questions about NASCAR’s environmental push by anchor Thomas Roberts, who apparently thinks race cars are actually fighter jets.

“The obvious draw for NASCAR is the speed,” Roberts said to France. “Cars going up to about 500 mph, right?”

And these are the people who are going to spend the next 200 days calling Romney out of touch?

France didn’t respond to the 500 mph claim, but I would have replied, “Yes, Thomas, and by going 500 miles per hour we get the race over a lot faster, thus sparing the environment unnecessary pollution. We’re Al Gore approved!”

Extra credit question for Thomas Roberts: Assuming the cars go 500 miles per hour, why does it take several hours to complete the Daytona 500?

EARTH-SHATTERING BREAKING NEWS!!! Progressives Less Tolerant Online, Pew Research Center Finds

by Donald Douglas on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Well, who woulda thunk it!

Here’s the report from Pew: “Social Networking Sites and Politics.”

And Andrew Malcolm comments at IBD: “Online, Liberals Far Less Tolerant Than Normal People.” (Via Memeorandum.)

And here’s genetic mutant and trig truther Thers responding the news:

Fuck you die now.

FUCK FUCK FUCKITTY FUCK FUCK BLOW ME WITH A BLOWFUCK FUCK, AND FUCK YOUUUUU, FUCK OFF, FUCKGOOBER FUCKBANANA FUCKOFFS, YOU STUPID FUCKNOSED FUCKNOBBLER FUCKSHIT FUCKS.

Oh, wait!

Wrong post. I found that at Thers’ tag: “Motherfucking Civility.”

Also available at that tag: “The National Institute for Civil Discourse.” (Recall that progressives established that place after they blood libeled Sarah Palin for the Tuscon shootings, although nobody mentions it anymore, the mofos.)

Oh, I almost forgot. Here’s the genetic mutant‘s response: “I Can’t Imagine Why Anyone Would Ever Try to Avoid You, Mr. Sunshine.”

Andrew Malcolm explains that according to Top-flight Scientifical Research, Conservatives are much more open to Civil Discourse and Reasonable Debate than are Liberals. Conservatives, Malcolm explains, are big-hearted and unfailingly polite, unlike Liberals, who are always sneering at people who disagree with them, the dirty little un-American shits…

Exactly.

MAS. From Ed Morrissey:

It’s a well-known fact that liberals are more tolerant than conservatives or moderates. Superior liberal tolerance is such a fact that they will scream at you if you dare to disagree or debate them, demand that your advertisers bail on you, and pressure the FCC to get you banned from the airwaves. Does that sound like tolerance to you?

Of course!

Take that, Thers! You mofo mutant freak!

Hardly Surprising: UN General Assembly Holds Moment of Silence for Kim Jong Il

by Doug Powers on Saturday, December 24th, 2011

This is article 563 of 1257 in the topic International

I’m sure Jimmy Carter tried like hell to get there in time.

From MSNBC:

The U.N. General Assembly granted a request from North Korea and held a moment of silence on Thursday for Kim Jong-il, the country’s former leader who died on Saturday, though Western envoys said they would boycott it.

Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, president of the 193-nation General Assembly, saying he was following existing practice, led the moment of silence before an assembly meeting at 3 p.m. EST.

He offered condolences to the people of North Korea.

Keep in mind this “moment of silence” was to honor a brutal dictator who starved his own people:

UN lifers probably loved Kim Jong Il because he saw to it that his country was environmentally-friendly and didn’t waste electricity. This photo is Al Gore approved:

MSNBC’s New Designated Palin Basher: Bachmann ‘More Smarter’ Than Sarah

by Doug Powers on Friday, December 2nd, 2011

This is article 189 of 573 in the topic Media

MSNBC just recently hired Meghan McCain, which somehow makes me even less likely to watch the channel than I was before. But maybe I should reconsider because from the sound of it I’m missing out on a few laughs:

MSNBC contributor Meghan McCain interviewed Michele Bachmann and spoke glowingly about the Republican presidential candidate on Thursday’s edition of Now with Alex Wagner. “I famously said a statement earlier where I said Michele Bachmann was the poor man’s Sarah Palin,” McCain recalled. “I am completely wrong. This is the thinking man’s Sarah Palin.” When questioned by Newsweek‘s Richard Wolffe about why, McCain replied “she’s more smarter.”

That must mean that Sarah’s more dumber than Bachmann, but it’s still more better to assume that Palin and Bachmann are both more smarter than McCain. OhmygodI’mliketotallyseriousyouguys!

BREAKING: Chris Christie sneezed; Update: The endless no

by Michelle Malkin on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

This is article 265 of 1300 in the topic 2012 Elections

The heavy breathing over NJ Gov. Chris Christie over the past two weeks makes Justin Bieber fans look downright ascetic.

He sniffled. He burped. He cleared his throat.

What could it all mean?

Mother fudge biscuits, this is ridiculous.

Twitter lit up this morning with URGENT BREAKING NEWS of yet another Christie news conference scheduled today for 1pm Eastern.

“Sources” tell everyone and their mothers that Christie is/isn’t/may be/could be/might be running for president — and that no matter what he actually says later today, it is/isn’t/may be/could be/might be a sign of the opposite of whatever he says.

Wake me up when the panting ends.

***

Update 1:34pm Eastern: Christie is now 30 minutes into his “No, I’m not running, but I’ll bask in the national spotlight for just a wee bit longer” press conference.

Alas, there is no Gong Show gong to bring this thing to a merciful close.

Christopher J. Christie, will you please go NOW?
