The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Citing anonymous Obama Admin official, CNN asserts pressure cooker bombs come from “extreme right-wing individuals”

Written By: Bob - Apr• 17•13

The mainstream media simply can’t seem to help itself. Despite the unimpeachable, documented facts that all recent terror plots within the past 1-2 years were tied to left-wing extremists (Occupy Cleveland bridge bomb plot, attempted FRC mass murder) or Muslim terrorists, CNN’s Tim Lister and Paul Cruickshank are still trying to assert that conservatives are behind the Boston marathon bombing.

Evidence? Who needs evidence?

The devices used in the Boston Marathon attack Monday are typical of the “lone wolf:” the solo terrorist who builds a bomb on his own by following a widely available formula.

In this case, the formula seems very similar to one that al Qaeda has recommended to its supporters around the world as both crudely effective and difficult to trace. But it is also a recipe that has been adopted by extreme right-wing individuals in the United States.

To borrow a phrase from the Demagogue-in-Chief, let me be clear: there is no evidence whatsoever that any politically conservative/Republican/libertarian group has ever created a device of this kind. These bombs are common in Afghanistan/Pakistan/Tibet/Kashmir, and appear to be isolated to that part of the world for now as far as it’s use as an actual weapon, until now.

CN goes on to claim that, “A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.”

Really? I want to see evidence supporting this claim. Otherwise, I’m going to write this off as another Obama Administration official libeling conservatives.

Again.

    Vilify your enemy, dehumanize them, and then you can harm and kill them with impunity. Those on the left scare me with their version of “peace and safety” far more than those on the right who will fight only if they must. I would not have half of the equipment that I have if not for the attitude and actions of the “peace lovers”.

    Partial transcript of conversation(about gun control) on msnbc’s Morning Joe broadcast today between 7:30 & 8 am, 17APR13.
    The full text of transcript and video can be viewed at:
    (http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3036789/ns/msnbc_tv-morning_joe/#51567805)
    Apologies for this lengthy post.
    Without question, Joe, Mika,(the wrist slapped criminal)former congressman Harold Ford, jr. and everyone involved in that segment should actually be charged with treason following this segment.
    What occurred goes deeper down the rabbit hole of simply being pandering, whoring and felating quislings for joe.
    Listen hard and think hard and read deeply between the lines of their discussion, mashing into a single homemade burger Boston, Newtown, terrrorism and gun control laws.
    Their discussion is based on a video clip used to introduce the segment.
    The video clip is an english translated, youtube video, training video by muslim/islamic terrorist. The beginning of the partial transcript below is supposedly the transaltion of what the terrorist is saying.

    “in the west, you’ve got a lot at your disposal. Let’s take america as an example.
    America is awash with easily obtainable firearms. You go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check and, most likely, without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?

    >>Mika Brzezinski comments first<>Joe Scarborough follows next<>enter former congressman and msnbc analyst Harold Ford, jr.<<
    "you take a terrorists word and run that ad side-by-side with every ad that wants to be run and you say i stood up and i showed courage and voted this way. i don't mean to judge administratively my friends in the senate but i have to say this is one of those moments not only what happened in newtown but what commonwealth of massachusetts is confronting if you can't fight it, you can't be in this business." {and it goes from there}

    -you shouldn't be in office.-

    -from my part of the country, somehow support allowing guns to flow freely all over the country, i don't think people in northwest florida or people in arkansas or people in west virginia want that guy and terrorists across the globe to be able to get guns easily in america to kill americans.
    and to laugh at our stupid system.

    CNN in 2010:

    “New issue of magazine offers jihadists terror tips

    From the CNN Wire Staff
    October 12, 2010

    “…An idea in the first edition, “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” is touched on again.

    “The pressurized cooker should be placed in crowded areas and left to blow up. More than one of these could be planted to explode at the same time. However, keep in mind that the range of the shrapnel in this operation is short range so the pressurized cooker or pipe should be placed close to the intended targets and should not be concealed from them by barriers such as walls….”

    How easy do they forget!

    In what way shape or form does a right wing agenda have anything to do with harming innocent people. That would in my view be against everything we stand for. This is not good they dehumanized the jews first too.

    “Once you understand that the media is a soulless left-wing propaganda machine determined to marginalize the right, everything they do makes sense. Those of you asking, “How can the media make the same mistakes over and over again?”, fail to understand that falsely speculating that the right is behind or at fault for mass murder is not a mistake on the media’s part, it is a political tactic….

      IMHO, the actions of the press and the government (BIRM) seem to be more about goading a “right wing extremist” reaction. Every act is blamed on the right; they pass “laws” in ways that shortcut every chance for the citizens to review them; one second they’re fantasizing about confiscation and the next claiming they have no intention of confiscating arms. They ignore our pleas, abuse the representatives we send, and all the while rake off millions in bribes and “favors”.

    The last time a pressure-cooker in relation to bomb-making was in the news was a couple of years ago in Texas.

    Naser Jason Abdo, a sympathizer of the Ft. Hood shooter, was arrested.

    Gee, I wonder why MSM doesn’t mention anything about that?

  7. john says:

    Within a week, mark my words, we’ll see a patsy arrested for this who will conveniently be the owner of an AR15 and probably be in possession of re-loading supplies….. Make no mistake people, it IS coming, like it or not.
    Our Constitution has done a damn fine job of protecting us from tyranny for a long long time. It may be time for ordinary Americans to standup and protect IT. Fear not, despite what the media feeds you, WE outnumber them. Just understand, there will be sacrifice. It’s always been so when people are forced to defend their liberty. The tyrants only give what YOU are willing to TAKE. Wish all you want, but accept the truth and you’ll be better off.

    If the weapon was a rifle the first thought would be a sniper, a pistol would be an NRA supporter or a gang banger.
    Since the weapon was a pressure cooker it stands to reason the culprit is a Chef or Canning fanatic.

    The profile that the feds would love to match with a person is this: a “white” (not caucasian, that included too many types of people from too far East for political comfort) male, 25 to 35, (usual suspect to the feds so far) Iraq/Afghan war veteran (that’s the money shot,they want a Charles Whitman 2.0)…This would play into everything the executive branch wants and needs to make poltical hay with. This is just a semi-educated guess on my part, but there have been an awful lot of statements that support this theory dropped over the last four years by spokespersons of the current administration.
