Terrorists set off two explosives at the Boston Marathon six days ago, on April 15, 2012, killing three people and wounding hundreds. We know that it was the work of two brothers, immigrants from Chechnya, both Muslims, with ties to radical Islam. Based on other Terrorist attacks, including the one at Fort Hood, this is not much of a surprise.
The far left extremists in the MSM/DNC had other hopes. On my ride home on Monday, April 15, I was listening to WBUR (“Boston’s NPR News Station”), and they had on a so-called “terrorism expert” from Harvard University saying that it was most likely the work of domestic “right-wing” terrorists. This was not based on any factual track record. It was their political ideology driving that particular fantasy. NPR continued to double down on their pet theory.
Yup. You heard that correctly. An NPR “analyst” claiming that Hitler’s birthday is a “motivator” for those with a political view point to the right of center. Proving once again that history is not a strong point of the left. He was the leader of the German “National Socialist Workers Party”, with gives him more in common with the late Hugo Chavez, and the staff of NPR, than any registered Republican.
To be fair, NPR was not the only “news outlet” making these kind of baseless speculations. There was usual list of suspects joining in on their bashing of their political enemies while going out of their way to avoid the possibility of this terrorist act being the work of Islam extremists. You had James Kitfield of the National Journal, CNN, and of course, MSNBC. Ed Driscoll has a partial list of examples of this faux journalism that is so typical of the left.
Perhaps the best example of this moonbat behavior is David Sirota, who wrote an article in Salon entitled, ““Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” Look it up if you want, I’m not giving the a link. Mr. Driscoll points out that this is pretty consistent behavior for the left. You have easily documented cases going back almost a Century.

No Easy Day by Mark Owen & Kevin Maurer
This is an autobiography of a US Navy SEAL, and member of DEVGRU, who took part in Operation Neptune Spear. That was the mission where Osama bin Laden died of acute lead poisoning, when one of the SEALs shot him in the head. It is a very stright foward book that tells the story of how Mark Owen (not his real name) trained and deployed prior to the mission, as well as the boots on the ground perspective of how the operation took place. It is not a political book, the authors don’t have political axes to grind. They do make an honest assesment of VP Joe Biden though. A good and honest read. Well worth the money and time invested.

SEAL Team Six: The Novel by Chuck Dixon
A nice action novel about SEALs in the unit formerly known as SEAL Team Six. Here they are hunting Islamic terrorists who are finding and grooming “home grown” terrorists. It’s not about the fancy gear, or the politics behind the scenes, it’s about Good Guys finding and killing Bad Guys. For a $0.99 Kindle ebook, it certainly delivers value for your money. When I finished it, I was happy to find out it was the first in a planned series.
“I support Israel because it is the only country in the Middle East where Muslims have freedom and democracy.”
– Hasan Afzal; British Muslims for Israel
That’s according to the New York Times. The killer made an effort to determine who in the crowd were US Military personnel before opening fire.
No mention of the killer’s religion or the shout in the sanitized CNN story. Hardly a surprise.
The shooting occurred at the Frankfurt airport. So much for Germany’s strict gun control laws.

I’m announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.
This is not a joke. I’ve already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.
As you know, the Muslim faith doesn’t look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why I’m building this bar. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world.
The goal, however, is not simply to open a typical gay bar, but one friendly to men of Islamic faith. An entire floor, for example, will feature non-alcoholic drinks, since booze is forbidden by the faith. The bar will be open all day and night, to accommodate men who would rather keep their sexuality under wraps – but still want to dance.
Kudos to Gutfeld for exposing what an uber-putz that idiot is. It’s all about “understanding and tolerance”, just like they claim their mosque is.
Anybody who opposes Gutfeld’s plans must be racist and intolerant.

An al-Qaida operative tried to ignite an explosive device on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was know to have terrorist ties, and managed to walk through the security system at a major European airport with an explosive device.
When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian native and a Muslim, attempted to ignite the device, it was the passengers who noticed that something was wrong, and did something about it.
On September 11th 2001, the government’s (1970s) security procedures all failed, and the only good news of the day came from self-reliant citizens (on Flight 93) using their own wits and a willingness to act.
On December 25th 2009, the government’s (post-9/11) security procedures all failed, and the only good news came once again from alert individuals.
While our Dear Leader and the democrats may have forgotten 9/11, the American people have not.
Update: Our Dear Leader‘s DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano was out quickly to provide the Obama administration spin on this foiled terrorist attack. Ms. Napolitano’s response shows that she is either a bold faced liar or dangerously incompetent. Neither one of those options are good for America.
DHS Secretary Napolitano kept repeating the the administration’s spin, “the system worked.” As I pointed out, that obviously is not the case. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was know to have terrorist ties, and managed to walk through the security system at a major European airport with an explosive device.
Ms Malkin points out:
If the “system” had “worked,” the U.S. consular officials who granted Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab a short-term visa last June would have revoked it immediately upon being informed by his father that he was a Muslim radical with al Qaeda ties.
If the “system” had “worked,” U.S. consular officials would have never granted Abdulmutallab — a rootless, young, single male — a visa in the first place in compliance with State Department visa regulation 214(b):
If the “system” had “worked,” Abdulmutallab would have been barred from the U.S. like he had been barred from Britain.
Epic Fail for Napolitano.

One of the strongest factors in our Dear Leader’s election was that he was not George W. Bush. The far left really hated our former President and demonized him at every opportunity.
Many of those who voted for our Dear Leader did so in hopes that he would immediately reverse every policy of GWB and that unicorns would start pooping Skittles ™. Ya, ya. Obviously reality wasn’t their strong point, or checking up on our Dear Leader‘s history.
Well, reality has reared it’s ugly head and not only has Barack Hussein Obama not closed the Islamofascist detention center at Gitmo, he’s announced that he, like President George W. Bush, plans on holding some of them indefinitely. A policy that made BDS sufferers foam at the mouth when GWB announced it.
Add to that this bit of data. During the election, many liberals complained that President Bush was running the national debt up too high and the Communist Chinese government owned too much of that debt. A lot of fiscal conservatives agreed with them on that. After the election, the fiscal conservatives stuck by their principles and most liberals abandoned theirs as our Dear Leader raised the national debt in six months an amount that it took GWB eight years to reach, selling most of that new debt to the Communist Chinese government.
