Woodburn bank bombing trials open with father-son fingerpointing, allegations of anti-government extremism

.....it was Barack Obama's presidential win in November 2008 that finally drove the father and son to put one of their ideas into motion, Marion County Deputy District Attorney Katie Suver said Wednesday. They feared Obama's election would mean more gun restrictions, she said.

An employee at the Turnidges' biodiesel business recalled that Joshua Turnidge was "practically frantic" after the election about getting cash to reclaim his pawned guns as soon as he could, Suver said.

Then on Dec. 12, 2008, she said, the Turnidges planted a bomb outside the West Coast Bank in Woodburn. It ended up exploding inside the bank, killing two police officers, critically injuring a third and wounding a bank employee.

Right-wing extremist terrorism as deadly a threat as al Qaeda?

The word "terrorism" in the United States usually brings to mind plots linked in some way to al Qaeda, while the danger posed to the public by white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and other right-wing militants is often overlooked.

overlooked? praised on FOX is more like it.

If Right-Wing Violence is Up 400%, Why is the FBI Targeting Environmentalists?
Between 2007 and 2011, there was a sharp increase in the number of victims of right wing violence, according to the study, to the highest levels documented so far. On a broader timeline, the increase is even more dramatic.
There was a spike in both from injuries and fatalities in 2007, and those levels have remained constant through 2012. That’s approximately 190 injuries a year, and 30 deaths, due to right-wing violence.
The victims of this violence are not surprising. Approximately 65% of the attacks were directed against ethnic and religious minorities. And 14% of violent attacks were against people because of their sexual orientation.
As the author notes, this only includes crimes that were reported and could be directly tied to right-wing politics.
It’s possible that these numbers are actually much higher.

Zero hearings on right-wing violence

Which group has committed more acts of violent terrorism in the last 20 years, Muslim extremists or right-wing extremists?

Not only is it the right-wing extremists, it’s not even close. The Economist magazine credits right-wing groups with 145 incidents between 1990 and 2010 — versus 25 Islamic attacks.

Fortunately, the House Homeland Security Committee has held five hearings on Muslim radicalism in the last two years — as well it should. But how many hearings have focused on the violent right-wing fringe?

Our number of the day:

ZERO.

Zip.

Nada.

After a Wisconsin man gunned down six people in a Sikh temple this month.

After a Texas man crashed his plane into an Internal Revenue Service building two years ago.

After racists have formed networks in the military.

Still — nothing.

And for that, we can blame politics. Three years ago, a unit in the Department of Homeland Security warned that economic problems and a newly elected black president could turn up the volume from conservative hate groups. The right wing slammed the report — and that DHS unit was gutted.

But the warning was dead-on. These attacks have only gotten worse — and instead of looking extensively at the problem, the GOP-controlled House committee has been looking everywhere except at the groups that committed 145 terrorist acts.

Note to Congress: Forget your party affiliation. You either take the threat of domestic terrorism seriously or you don’t.

articles on right wing violence permeate the net. but if you want the 'scoop' on left wing violence you have to rely on Breibart. minus the retractions of course.

He speaks Arabic fluently, can read the language and given his career experiences he's a perfect fit, in these times, for the job of CIA director.

He's probably a real prik and perhaps going back a ways he was part of the problem at that agency, he certainly has detractors on both sides of the aisle.

In a speech to House Democrats, Biden claimed,“It is clearly within the right of the government to determine what type of weapons can be owned by the public.”
Can anyone provide text from the Constitution that supports Biden's statement?
And, the public is the people. We have a government of the people and by the people, if you give any respect to Abraham Lincoln.
So, if you think we have a government of the people, then the government is subject to the same restrictions.
Actually, the Democrats don't like the concept of a government of the people. They are trying to force on the people a government of the ruling elite. Therefore, with disregard to the Constitution, they intend on instituting two different sets of rights: one set of rights for the people in the government, and a different set of rights for the lower classes not part of the ruling elite.
Again, can anyone provide text from the Constitution that supports Biden's statement?
The problem with this country is some of you idiots think that you know more about running this country than the man in the job. Well if that's the case, stfu and Run for the office. I agree with the president. You rednecks are crazy as hell. Some lines need to be drawn with regards to allowing fools to run around with weapons of mass destruction. YOU know it too. WTF do you need with a high powered, automatic weapon that shoots 100 rounds? If you want to kill somebody...take your crazy asses to war where they are armed to shoot back at cha.

There is no permanence in politics. Democrats patting themselves on the back at a job well done will at some point be drowning their sorrows in beer as Republicans again talk about their ridiculous fantasy of a permanent Republican majority (this time without steel tariffs).

People shift over time. Pendulums swing. And in the age of instantly lame ducked Presidents upon their swearing in for a second term, discord has ways of getting the best of any political party.

Conservatives who rallied to George W. Bush through No Child Left Behind, steel tariffs, Medicare Part D, Harriet Miers, etc. stood with him until the end. Many held on through TARP and the auto bailout and immigration, unable to see the fractures or trying to will them away. Now the GOP is dealing with the fall out of that legacy.

Consider the suspicion conservative groups have of Bush’s architect, Karl Rove, starting a new group supposedly to support “the most electable conservative”. Conservatives are still trying to work their way back out of the Republican Party and stand up on their own again.

WTF do you need with obama drones, killing and targeting American citizens without trial or proof of a crime? An automatic weapon that can shoot, bomb and kill many people.

You can ban guns, box cutters, knifes, swords, sticks or stones. You won't disarm a deranged liberal.
