#BostonMarathon Bombing Updates

#BostonMarathon Bombing Updates

There has not been a lot learned since last night. At a press conference this morning almost nothing was learned, except that the investigators seem desperate for information and are calling on the public to turn in videos and photos.

I’m embedding the Twitter feed at the bottom of the post, which is a good way to keep track during the day.

It’s early. They are amassing information and there has been no time to digest it.

That’s never stopped the politicos from jumping to conclusions before. Never let a crisis go to waste, right?

Obama has already decided, according to Axelrod, via Drudge, that the bombing is related to Tax Day.

How can he know? Did he pay someone to do it? Why are bombs filled with ball bearings and such, typical of other such bombs used against Israelis by Muslims, why are they not a sign of Islamic terrorism?

Is this bombing supposed to produce a call for less rights and more security? Is it part of the Cloward-Piven-Alinsky strategy? Is this why DHS has been stockpiling bullets?

Obama wants to point a finger at us TP types. This TP type is pointing a finger back at him.

I’m always impressed at how much reported information is simply wrong in these cases.

And a lot of it persists, despite being totally bogus.

Everybody has a cell phone camera and video these days and at events like this there are thousands upon thousands of pictures and hours of video.

His (or her) picture is out there. Its a matter of combing the mountain to find the molehill.

In the meantime we can all play “Let’s See What Pundits Can Be Most Wrong So Far”. So far Chris “I Hate The Right” Matthews is the form horse.

on Eliz Warren

I listened to the press conference at 9:30 am or so today. Warren spoke.

Her first thought was to praise Obama as leader who did not need to be called, but a leader who sought out members of the “Mass Delegation.”

She then went on – secondly – to praise the first responder.

I do not think she offered prayers for anyone or ever mentioned the victims, including young Martin Richard (8) who was a known fatality.

What a zero.

    I have never listened to an Obama speech.
    I have never listened to a Warren speech.
    That’s how I manage my blood pressure.

Apparently the bombs were made from pressure cookers, reportedly 6 litre.

And the recipe was in an Al Qaeda newsletter. Do not know date.

Veterans say that pressure cookers are a common means for creating IEDs in Afghanistan.

Yes tax day. That must be it. Anger over attempts to abridge the 2nd Amendment just sent someone into a frenzy.

    Think of a pressure cooker as a big, fat pipe bomb.

    Cheap, can be made air and water-tight, and can hold a lot of both explosives and shrapnel.

    Like a pipe bomb, they concentrate the explosive energy of even relatively low-order explosives.

Just a curious lil’ thought…

How many OWS types have been convicted/pled guilty, or are in custody for bomb plots?

How’s come THEY are not being speculated about by the Mushroom Media?

I mean, what are the odds…???

My heart just breaks for the little boys.

As expected, Lefty politicians are exploiting this with attacks on the Right, and also as expected when the Right tries to challenge them the Left will all cry out in unison “Let’s Not Politicize This!”


Al Somebody…??? Involved in the bombings…???


Pres. Sleeper took out al Qaeda. He told us.

I shall leave it to you guys to work out . It does seem strange because I have a pressure cooker here & it is big . how is it possible to carry 2 ?

Were they in rubbish bins & if so why were the bins near the finish line & not searched ? It is complicated because Public marathon spectacles like this produce an enormous amount of trash & people are all over with trash bags with their gear in them. Plus famiLy memos & friends wait at he end also with their gear.

Not to make light of it , but I have an eccentric friend who always runs the course the night before when it is being set up . It saves him money & he always wins.

Elsewhere the good news is that The London Marathon is going ahead & Pronce Harry will be handing out the prizes.
