Boston bombing suspect cites U.S. wars as motivation, officials say

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation, said Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed by police as the two attempted to avoid capture, do not appear to have been directed by a foreign terrorist organization.

Rather, the officials said, the evidence so far suggests they were “self-radicalized” through Internet sites and U.S. actions in the Muslim world.

Obama is “Face of Capitalist Empire”

“From the start, Obama has been leading the charge to betray Social Security and the foundation of the Democratic Party’s policy platform, which is the New Deal,” said Kevin Alexander Gray, the Columbia, South Carolina writer and activist.“Obama is the face of the capitalist empire; that’s what he believes in,” said Gray.“What troubles me about Black Obama supporters is, they just seem to ignore it. It’s all about misguided racial pride.”

Chicago Teachers Prepare Electoral Challenge to Mayor Emanuel

Massive school closings have made Chicago “ground zero” in the battle to preserve public education, said Michael Brunson, of the Chicago Teachers Union. Fifty-four schools have been targeted for closure, this year, most of them in Black and brown neighborhoods.“People don’t want to move into a community if they don’t have a school they can send their children to,” said Brunson.“It’s part of a downward spiral that disinvests from our communities and causes them to crumble.” The teachers union plans to register 100,000 new voters to challenge mayoral control of the schools.

Newark Protests Against Social Security Cuts

The People’s Organization for Progress held demonstrations, in Newark, New Jersey, to protest President Obama’s proposed cuts to Social Security and other entitlement programs. Chairman Larry Hamm noted that POP endorsed Obama “in both elections after much discussion and debate.” But,“now we turn around and have to fight the very guy we voted for.” Obama, said Hamm, is “the first Democratic president to actually propose cuts to Social Security.”

So let me get this straight. You think if the UN Inspectors had announced before the Iraq War that the coast was clear, Saddam would have simply become a nice guy?
The entire world provided Saddam with those materials believing they were being used for medical research.
Do you think the entire world would have done that if they knew he was going to gas 5000 Kurdish women and children?
Who do you think was responsible for all those mass graves discovered?
Saddam was a POS but he was a harmless POS. France, German, Italian and Turkish intelligence agencies, to name a few knew Saddam was a paper tiger. Israel also knew but didn't offer up their real intelligence. I don't know where you are coming from with the medical research bullsht__please provide a link that doesn't have (opinion) in the title.

Between 3200 and 5000 Kurds died as a result of the gassing and 7000 plus suffered injuries of varying degrees, some of them life shortening.

As usual Carol__you're lost on the subject and too fkn lazy to explore the details. Sad case you are!

The Big Nausea: Waking Up With an Obama-Ache
Who will defend the indefensible Obama? Answer: There will be fewer and fewer Obamapologists, as each day passes.“For the monumentally dysfunctional Black Misleadership Class, the winding down of the Age of Obama is cause for frantic repositioning, and for the revising of their own histories.”Black folks have been forced to come to grips with the finality of Obama’s second term.”

The Obama Hangover has begun. The drunken delirium that descended on Black America after the pale Democratic caucuses of Iowa endorsed a brown-skinned corporatist just after New Years Day, 2008 – conveying white “viability” on a Great Black Hope – is definitively over. It’s the morning-after in Black America, a scene of economic and political ruin bathed in the searing daylight of Obama’s second term and umpteenth betrayal.

It would be easy to say that the Great Nausea of 2013 was occasioned by Obama’s blunt object assault on Social Security and the whole array of entitlements. However, the First Black President’s obituary is not written in his budget. The onset of post-Obamaism has more to do with the calendar than anything else. Since Election Day, November 6, Black folks have been forced to come to grips with the finality of Obama’s second term – the impending emergence from the dream. There is the sound of a finger snapping.“In a few moments, you will wake up.”The awakening will be uneven and, for many, dreadful: a dreamscape dissolving into the rubble-strewn nightmare left by the Great Recession, a catastrophe that set African Americans back as much as two generations, but which was not subjectively experienced as such by huge segments of the Black community. Instead, reality was subsumed by the mere presence of a Black person in the White House.

African Americans have an immense sense of pride in Barack Obama as President of the United States and he is unequivocally liked. He receives a 91% favorable rating. Seventy-two percent believe that President Obama's election has helped them while only 4% believe his election has hurt them.

I think I said before that if during an invasion of your sovereign country, Americans managed to destroy your house, livelihood, kill your mom and baby sister, and cripple your dad, you're going to hate them. However, I never even thought of all the potential terrorists Bush & Co. had managed to create within the Muslim faith...that drunken imbecile should be brought up on charges greater than Tsarnaev, imho

You need to get out more often Flacko.

Tons of weed and coke have been coming into Florida daily since the 1970's via every imaginable means. By land by sea and by air.

Yeah__the cute little sub would meet drug running high speed boats off shore which would run the product through the thousand islands to Immokalee where the Mexicans would distribute it through their vast network. Old news__been going on for thirty years.

Think trucks Flacko, trucks coming through customs in TX, AZ and CA. Does NM have any border major border crossings?

How many trucks (tractor trailers) do you think enter the US daily through Brownsville TX Flack?

<quoted text> Take pleasure in this response because, you won't be getting another one dumass! You're misinformed, dumb, & delusional. Was the black community doing better under Bush, No. Our current situation is because of Bush, & opposition from the republican side of the isle. The democrats of today are the republicans of yesterday, well known fact bucko! Who pushed for education reform & came up with the bright idea of" The No Child Left Behind Act?" Sure wasn't the left! What was the result dumass? Millions of urban city children being ushered through school, not learning a damn thing, but feeling like they accomplished something because they passed/graduated. Dumass, in reality it doesn't matter what party has been in office, the results have been the same. Nobody knows what Obama's legacy will be until 2014, when the obstructionist are voted out for folks of more compliance. Dumass!

Hey Mr Peabody I could care less about pot and coke. I worry more about stingers, dirty bombs, and suitcase style nukes. The point is on the roads at the borders, just like the ports, there are radiation detectors. If a sub with a nuke cruises into the bay there at Tampa and sets it off it won't matter how long they have been running drugs.

"The Boston Bombers were Muslim. So?"

"Today's train bombers are Muslim. So?"

Our political and media elite's response (in a screechy, screechy HillarySpeak voice):
"What difference, at this point, does it make?!!!"

the politically correct media are angrier at chick-a-fil than anti-american muslims. they were more upset by Michael Vick killing dogs than Grossnell killing babies. and if Sarah Palin had been in a psychiatric hospital that would have been disclosed and often--unlike their recent kid glove treatment of leftwing nutjob Ashley Judd.
