Boston Bombing Suspects' Identity Sparks Fear Of Backlash For American Muslims, Sikhs

  Verne Strickland USA DOT COM April 21, 2013

Posted:   |  Updated: 04/19/2013 9:14 pm EDT
WASHINGTON -- For Arab-Americans -- and people who are mistaken to be Arab -- there's an extra layer of fear that rides along with the frightening news of a possible terror attack: the very real possibility that they will be blamed.
Linda Sarsour, the national advocacy director for the National Network for Arab American Communities, knows it happens. But when the bombs exploded Monday at the Boston Marathon, it was her 13-year-old son who brought that reality home with startling and personal impact.
He did it with a simple text message about an hour after the news broke that asked: "Mom, who did it?"
For Sarsour, it showed just how deeply the fear of guilt by bogus association is embedded in the Arab-American community, even in children born and raised in the United States whose prime obsessions tend to be video games, not race relations.
"The fact that young teenagers and young kids in our community are interested in who did it -- in hopes that it's not someone that's going to be affiliated with them -- is the kind of psychological trauma that our people in our community have," Sarsour said.
That's why her organization and several others were quick to put out a statement Friday appealing for restraint and understanding after the identities of the bombing suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were publicized, and the two were revealed to be of Chechen descent.
"Our thoughts and condolences continue to be with the victims of the Boston Marathon attacks," read the unity statement. "We are grateful to the brave first responders and law enforcement officers, who endangered their own lives in pursuit of the suspects and to keep the people of Boston safe.
"This is a time for us to come together as Americans during a sad and difficult moment," it continued. "As information continues to emerge, we urge the media and the public to refrain from scapegoating or turning against our fellow Americans based on their racial, ethnic, religious or immigrant identity."
Sarsour pointed to an incident already reported in New York, where a gang on Monday beat a Bangladeshi man who was raised in the Bronx because they decided he was "a f---ing Arab." She also noted the recent front page of the New York Post that put a big red circle around the faces of two innocent young men.
The anger and fear of guilt by association was all too apparent in the anguished appearance of the Tsarnaevs' uncle Ruslan Tsarni, who made clear to reporters outside his Maryland home Friday morning that he wanted nothing to do with his young relatives, calling them "losers."
"I love this country," Tsarni said. "This country, which gives chance to everybody else [to] be treated as a human being and to just be human being, to feel yourself human being -- that's what I feel about this country."
Tsarni seemed to especially blame the older brother for implicating his family and other Cechens in terrorism.
"He put a shame on this family -- not our family, Tsarnaev family -- he put a shame on the entire Chechen ethnicity," Tsarni said.
While blaming an entire ethnic group for the actions of two young men has no rational basis, Amardeep Singh, the program director of the Sikh Coalition, has seen worse. Sikhs are not Arabs and they practice a religion entirely unrelated to Islam, but they have often been targeted after terrorist horrors.
"We've experienced too much backlash for too long after these incidents occur," Singh said, recalling how after the gruesome beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, he had people blame him while he was simply riding a subway train.
"A passenger, as they were leaving, banged on the door and said 'We're not going to let you people get away with this,'" Singh said.
"What we're trying to let the public know is we're Americans, we share the concerns. We don't want this incident to allow us to turn on each other," said Singh, a lawyer who works in Manhattan and wears the distinctive Sikh turban.
Like Sarsour on the day of the bombing, Singh felt -- again -- the dual punishment terrorism inflicts on those who might suffer misplaced reprisal.
"I received messages just telling me to be careful, that sort of thing," Singh said. For most Americans who got similar messages, the meaning was to watch out for terrorists. For Singh, they had some of that meaning, but also warned that he should watch out for the people who will mistake him for a terrorist.
"In our community, it's both," said Singh. "That danger [of terrorism] is ever present. But then you have the second danger of being associated with the people who do these horrible things to our country."
After the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the FBI reported a surge of 481 anti-Muslim hate crimes. They dropped afterwards, but have been rising again in recent years.

David Horowitz -- 'My Thoughts on Boston' (where the BIG LIE has been exposed -- again)

Verne Strickland USA DOT COM April 20, 2013

They hated America and ordinary Americans like the victims of their mayhem!

 What Father Wouldn't Love This Face?

Watching the news about the Boston bombing and the Muslim fanatics who perpetrated the deed, I cannot help reflect on all the nasty attacks that liberals and progressives and Muslim activists have conducted against conservatives who have attempted to warn Americans that their enemies are religious fanatics driven by an apocalyptic hatred of us because we are Jews, Christians, atheists, democrats – in a word, infidels.

It has been said by Nancy Pelosi, George Soros and other Democrats that George Bush created the terrorists by attempting to enforce a UN Security council resolution and take down one of the monsters of the 20th Century in Iraq. 

It has been said by the late Susan Sontag and other progressive intellectuals that the heinous attacks of 9/11 were the result of American policies. The Center for American Progress and university administrators have relentlessly defamed as Islamphobes and bigots those of us who have had the temerity to talk about the Islamic roots of Islamic terror. If only we ignored the Islamic beliefs behind the terrorism and made nice to all Muslims indiscriminately, the terrorists wouldn’t hate us.

Boston has exposed this as the Big Lie and fatuous delusion that it has always been. The Boston killers were treated better in America than all but an elite among Americans born here who love their country. They were given scholarships, they were admitted to the most exclusive prep schools, they lived in a Cambridge environment where critics of Islamic terror were regarded as Islamophobes and they as a minority deserving special consideration and concern.

And yet they hated us. They hated America and ordinary Americans like the victims of their mayhem, and enlisted in the army of our mortal enemies. They hated us because they were fanatical believers in the idea that Mohammed had desired them to kill infidels and purify the earth for Allah.

This is the face of our enemy and the sooner the delusional liberals among us wake up to this fact, the safer all of us will be.

Dilation and Evacuation Abortion (D&E) Is Ideal for 23-Week-Old Fetus (Unborn Child).

What happened when my pro-abortion friend saw THIS picture…








share on facebook Share on twitter Share on email 

By Rebekah O’Brien

Editor’s note. This appeared Tuesday at

I had only been working for LifeSiteNews for a few weeks when a friend of mine came for a visit. She’s one of my best friends, and she’s an extraordinary person, full of love and compassion. She is also pro-abortion.

As the social media coordinator, I have the responsibility of finding stories on and posting them to Facebook and Twitter.
I spend a lot of time reading articles. While my friend was visiting, I was reading an article that contained the illustration displayed here, of a D&E abortion of a 23 week old baby.
 My friend looked over my shoulder and gasped.
 “What are you LOOKING at?” she asked, horrified.
“That’s an abortion,” I answered plainly.
“But, that’s a baby!” she exclaimed. “That doesn’t happen!”
“That’s a 23 week abortion. That happens quite frequently, actually.”
I tried to remain calm.
She’s not stupid. Really, honestly, she isn’t. She’s actually incredibly intelligent, educated. She has a degree.
I truly believe that my friend has been deceived.
How else could an intelligent, loving individual be completely “pro-choice”?
People are told what they want to hear, that it’s “just a blob of tissue,” or they’re told, “abortion is OK in certain circumstances,” and most importantly, they’re told “abortion is a woman’s right.” But when they are presented with the reality that what they thought was a blob of tissue was actually a baby, a human being, a lot of them change their minds. Yes, a lot.
She just stared at the illustration with pain in her eyes.
“I don’t know if I’m OK with that.” She said with finality.
The reason I am telling you this story is not simply to share the pro-life message.
I am telling you this to explain to you the importance of supporting pro-life organizations and sharing the truth.
It’s one thing to read a story and have your pro-life beliefs affirmed, but it’s another thing entirely to take that information and spread it as far and wide as you possibly can.
And we have seen time and time again that the truth is what changes hearts and mind. …

Dead Boston bombing suspect was a ‘very religious’ Muslim boxer. Lost his last fight by TKO.

Verne Strickland USA DOT COM  April 19, 2013

Tamerlan Tsarnaev: 'I don't have a single American friend. I don't understand them.' You got that right, young man. (You will not get any older now.)

Patrick Howley
Investigative Reporter
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two Chechen brothers identified as the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, was a self-described “very religious” Muslim boxer who yearned for Chechen independence and who posed for a photo essay entitled “Will Box for Passport.”
He was identified as the suspect who died early Friday morning during a shootout with police in Watertown, Massachusetts — a suburb of Boston. His brother, who is still on the run as of this publishing, is named Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a student at Bunker Hill Community College and a Golden Gloves boxer who trained at Wai Kru mixed martial arts gym in Boston and competed in a national Golden Gloves competition. The Wai Kru gym could not be reached for comment.
Prior to his national Golden Gloves competition in Salt Lake City, photographer Johannes Kirn profiled Tsarnaev in a photo essay entitled “Will Box For Passport,” quoting the young boxer as saying that he is a ”very religious” Muslim, which prevents him from drinking, smoking or removing his shirt around women, and that he cares deeply about the independence of Chechnya from Russia.
“I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them,” Tsarnaev told Kirn.
“Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: ‘God said no alcohol.’ A Muslim [SIC], he says: ‘There are no values anymore,’ and worries that ‘people can’t control themselves.’”
“Tamerlan says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off so girls don’t get bad ideas,” according to one of Kirn’s captions. “I’m very religious.”
“Tamerlan says he loves the movie ‘Borat,’ even though some of the jokes are a bit too much,” according to a caption.

They are Chechen Muslims. But The Issue is Not Chechnya, It’s Islamic Terrorism

Verne Strickland USA DOT COM April 19, 2013

A combination of handout pictures show the suspects wanted for questioning in relation to the Boston Marathon bombing
Now that we know who the bombers are and one of them is dead, and that they are Chechen Muslims, the media has gone into “Palestinian” mode insisting that we need to talk about the conflict in Chechnya.
We can talk about Chechnya, but the issue there and everywhere else is Islamic nationalism or Islamism. The bombers could have been from Chechnya or Mali or Bosnia or Iraq or Egypt or Afghanistan or any Muslim country where Islamists are active. And that’s most Muslim countries, especially after the Arab Spring.
There is a conflict in Chechnya and Iraq and Pakistan and Afghanistan and Thailand and Nigeria and the Philippines and India and Israel and France and a hundred other countries.
Where there is a sizable Muslim majority or even sizable minority, there is conflict.
Any talk about pressuring Russia into “resolving” or “appeasing” Chechen Islamists (at least the ones not allied with Russia) is a silly waste of time.
Russia isn’t Israel. It’s not going to be intimidated into making deals with terrorists. And talking about the demands of Chechen Islamists is a waste of time. Their demands are the same as the demands of all Islamists.
Islamism is Transnational. You cannot solve it locally. The situation in Israel has proven that. Giving in to territorial demands always fails because a transnational movement wants more than a few miles here and there. They want a regional and then a global Caliphate.
America had nothing to do with the conflict in Chechnya. That didn’t stop Dzhokar Tsarneav and Tamerlan Tsarneav from carrying out the mass murder of Americans.
To understand Dzhokar Tsarneav and Tamerlan Tsarneav is to understand that Islam is transnational.
“World view” is listed as “Islam” and his “Personal priority” is “career and money”.
He has posted links to videos of fighters in the Syrian civil war and to Islamic web pages with titles like “Salamworld, my religion is Islam” and “There is no God but Allah, let that ring out in our hearts”.
It’s Allah Akbar all over again.

Radical NPR news gal Dina Temple-Raston claims Boston bomb may have been work of political right. Triggered by Hitler's birthday?

NPR: Hitler's Birthday Might Have Motivated Right Wing to Bomb Boston Marathon?


Verne Strickland USA DOT COM  April 18, 2013

What a beautiful racket the left has going. Those of us who dare not be liberal are literally paying, through our tax dollars, for NPR to smear us like this:

Partial transcript: "The thinking, as we have been reporting, is that this is a domestic, extremist attack and officials are leaning that way largely because of the timing of the attack. April is a big month for anti-government and right-wing individuals. There's the Columbine anniversary, there's Hitler's birthday, there's the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. 

"That long-knife you just felt eased into your back came courtesy of the oh-so precious dulcet tones that emanate from NPR correspondent Dina Temple-Raston -- which makes sense. After all, don't most serial-smearers have three names?"
You can read more about the media's never ending crusade to falsely blame the right for mass murder here.

Breaking: Boston Suspects Identified..And The Saudi Connection They're Not Telling You About.

Thursday, April 18, 2013


Verne Strickland USA DOT COM




Today has to go down as a real landmark in what passes for journalism these days.

It started out when someone involved in the investigation blabbed to CNN that the feds had a photo of someone with the kind of large backpack used to carry and camouflage the 6 liter pressure cooker bombs and that they were seeking what was described as 'a dark skinned man.'

So rather than act with the responsibility you might credit a 12 -year-old with and think about the possibility that they might be alerting a fugitive he was on the fed's radar, of course they broadcasted that information publicly, via CNN talking head John King and claimed an arrest had been made.

Of course, no actual arrest had been made, and CNN was reprimanded by the feds,but the damage of course was already done.Meanwhile, in a desperate lunge back to political correctness King walked back the 'dark skinned' remark:

I want to be very careful about this because people get very sensitive when you say these things. I was told by one of these sources, who is a law enforcement official, that this was a dark-skinned male. The official used some other words, I’m not going to repeat them until we get more information because of the sensitivities. There are some people that will take offense even at saying that.

Nevertheless, now that the clowns are offstage, there are some interesting new developments.

The Lord and Taylor security video cam apparently caught images of two men toting back packs of exactly the kind used to transport and camouflage the bombs, as well as an image of what appears to be a man leaving a backpack near the finish line.It shows him
placing it outside the railing, and there's another shot of the man running away from the scene while the rest of the crowd is caught up in the blast and scrambles for cover scrambles for cover.

Second Bomb: Photos show a bag next to a mailbox along the marathon route and may have been the footage used by the FBI to positively ID a suspect

While everyone seems to instinctively cower - the man dressed in black and highlighted - appears to run away at speed from the scene in the opposite direction to everyone else who was caught up in the blast

There's also another image of a man dialing a number on a cell phone moments before the blast. Cell phones are very popular ways of remotely detonating a bomb of this kind, but the feds are able to check cell records to see who used a phone at that exact place and time. Of course, if the caller was part of the team who set off the bombs and he was the least bit professional, there are obvious ways to use a cell phone as a detonator in this fashion and leave no record which I'd just as soon not mention, because there's always the chance someone could be reading this whom shouldn't. But there's always the chance that if this person was part of team, he screwed up, so it's worth the feds checking out.

Now we get to go in a different direction and look at some other pictures.


These are  three Arab males at the Marathon before the bombing,one  of whom appears to toting a back pack of the kind used for the bombs.

One of them has a striking resemblance to Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was apprehended leaving the scene of the bombing with his clothes smelling of gunpowder and made several curious statements, declaring  “I thought there would be a second bomb” and  “Did anyone die?”

We were told he was not a suspect but was still being held as a witness, 'a person of interest'. But more on that later.

As I mentioned in the above link, Alharbi hails from the Asir province near Yemen, a part of the Kingdom where Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)is not exactly unpopular.So do his two roommates that lived with him in an apartment in Revere, a Boston suburb. One of  those roommates  my sources tell me is still being sought by the FBI and another is in custody over what are described as 'visa problems'.

 You'll remember that after Alharbi was detained by the FBI,  his apartment  was searched and a number of bags of evidence removed.

But wait,  there's more.

Alharbi has quite  an interesting family background. As former terrorist Walid Shoebat reveals, our friend Alharbi has no less than six family members  openly affiliated with al-Qaeda, plus another 5 who have served time at Guantamano. And in fact his entire clan has a significant jihadist orientation.

By this time, your jaw is probably dropping and you're wondering 'how did someone with this background get a visa to come to America'? Walk with me awhile.

While Alharbi was in custody and was declared a suspect, our Secretary of State had a routine press conference and photo op scheduled with   the Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal. Usually these sort of things are public. But in this case, Secretary Kerry and Prince Saud al-Faisal abruptly canceled the presser and held a secret, behind closed doors meeting.

Shortly afterwards, it was announced that Alharbi was no longer a suspect  and was simply a person of less than 24 hours since he was picked up.

And today, Alharbi, who supposedly had nothing to do with the bombing is going to be speedily deported as - wait for it - 'a national security risk'.

They're getting him out of the country and cleaning this up.

Today, no less than President Obama had a meeting with Prince Saud-al-Feisal that was not on his schedule. According to the White House, the meeting concerned Syria, but that's the sort of thing that would have been handled by Kerry in the earlier meeting.This was almost certainly something different.

Another clue was that a major press conference on the status of the investigation of the bombings scheduled for 5 PM EST today was abruptly postponed after the president's meeting with al-Feisal occurred. My gut tells me they have a pretty good idea of who was responsible by now but are waiting on instructions from Washington before going public.

If  Saudis were involved in the Boston Marathon bombing, it's a rather nasty mutual problem.

Three months ago, the Obama administration ended post-9/11 restrictions on Saudis entering the US and put them on the 'trusted traveler list', which is how Alharbi and a lot of other Saudis with questionable backgrounds got in -  not that there was ever all that much of a restriction on visas from young men from the Kingdom or other Arab countries anyway.

So if a Saudi national or nationals were to be linked with the Boston Bombing, it would point yet another finger at President Obama and his team's less than stellar performance when it comes to foreign policy and national security. One can only live off someone else's ordering the  assassination of Osama bin-Laden so for so long, especially with the rest of the Middle East unraveling.

In addition, there's  a multi-billion dollar arms deal with the House of Saud in the works, not to mention this president's fondness for Islam and Islamists, all  that oil, and continued Saudi access to America, all of which might be looked at by Americans rather badly if the carnage in Boston was the result of people the Obama Administration changed U.S. law to let into the country.

So  if this was jihad, it's in the mutual interest of both the president and the Saudis to handle this carefully. If Saudis were involved, my guess is that the Obama Regime will employ one of these scenarios in this order of preference:

Either they'll somehow find a Great White Tea Party Terrorist to pin the Boston Bombing on, simply let the whole thing fade away while pledging to 'bring the people responsible to justice' ( how I hate that phrase) or if necessary,  pin it on unnamed al-Qaeda elements and launch a few drones while the Saudis responsible slip quietly out of the country. It's happened before.

As a last resort, if Saudis were involved and  there's no way to get around  it, they might  be forced to imprison the bombers, while telling Americans what a religion of peace Islam is and that the bombers were only  caught  'thanks to the help we got from our Saudi allies'.

To President Obama, this isn't really terrorism, in spite of what he finally admitted. It's a political problem to be handled .

Jude Eden: Boston Terror & The Cover-Up President








Obama’s flimsy response to terror and violence shouldn’t be a surprise.

By Jude Eden, Jane of Trades

 April 16, 2013

The only thing more sickening than yesterday’s terrorist attack on Boston is Barak Obama’s response to it, and the knowledge that nothing will really be done unless it is despite this administration.  It was a terrorist attack regardless of who is responsible because the terror tactic of bombing – to maim and kill as many as possible – was used.  This is not jumping to conclusions as Obama told us we should not do, it is a factual description, one he himself could not bring himself to give yesterday.
It was over three hours from when the bombs went off before our President addressed the nation, mustering as much emotion as if he were folding socks.  Let me be clear.  We know what to expect from this excuse for a chief executive.  His response to terrorist Nadal Hassan’s massacre of unarmed men and women in a gun-free zone while screaming “Allahu Akhbar!!!” was to call it workplace violence.  He didn’t want us to jump to conclusions then either.  That was a terrorist attack by a Jihadist, a coward too gutless to meet our brave military on the field of battle.  That he is still awaiting trial is a national disgrace.
We got a similarly cold and monotone response to that preventable horror of Benghazi where our ambassador and the Americans defending him were brutally tortured and murdered, along with the empty promise that the perps would be brought to justice.  We’re still waiting.  The fact that some are entertaining the idea that Hilary Clinton could be the 2016 presidential nominee, blood freshly on her hands and arrogant in the face of questions rightly asked of her, is a testament not only to the newly titled “low-information voter,” but the deep extent of the media’s complicity.  Today’s voters wouldn’t be nearly so low-info if America’s so-called journalists would do their jobs: report and ask hard questions.  They are not doing so with regard to Boston either.  To them, Tea Partiers who commit no acts of violence are just as likely suspects as the Jihadists who always use terror.  This administration has been cultivating this belief system for many years now.  It is perfect Saul Alinsky.
Obama’s flimsy response to terror and violence shouldn’t be a surprise.  The college buddy of domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn is quite comfortable with such tactics if they suit his revolutionary ends.  He had no chastisement for the property-destroying, flea-infested, anti-Semitic rapists of the Occupy movement.  He understood them.  He praised the violent and militant uprisings in Egypt that ousted our ally and peace-keeper with Israel, Mubarak.  He supported the violent and illegal overthrow of Qaddafi, now replaced by more militant extremists.  With such tendencies and sympathies, a stance against terror rings pretty hollow.
Further, Obama has given our enemies – the enemies of freedom worldwide who use terror tactics as a rule – weapons, tanks and planes.  He has invited the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood to the White House.  He has been silent on their crimes against humanity and those of their home countries, Islamic theocracies that condone the subjugation, mutilation, rape, and murder of women, children and gays.  And the media just cannot bring themselves to contrast his sidling up to these monsters while claiming support of gays in America.
What Saul Alinsky taught has chaos at its roots – cause chaos, destroy the system – any system (and any system thereafter – it is a game of perpetual uprising and demolition).   How do you do this in a country where the citizens revel in self-reliance, the rule of law, strength and success?  You destroy the basis of its strength, starting with the family unit.  You say all lifestyles are equal, abortion is a right and label anyone who thinks killing babies is wrong as an extremist.  You indoctrinate and control children through government schools – you tell parents it takes a village.  You bully and feminize the men who would otherwise lead – you do it in the name of faaaaaaairness.  You defame those with a higher faith so that others will not want to ascribe to faith, and they will be more easily controlled.  You undermine law enforcement so that people don’t trust cops and assume they are racist and corrupt.  You stigmatize the one set of heroes in the population who fights to protect the rest – the military.  You tell the people that returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are the most likely terrorists so that everyday citizens will fear them.  You don’t allow real terrorists to be called what they are.  You defend the most violent, racist, misogynistic, homophobic religion on the planet.  You call it a religion of peace. You repeal DADT and then anyone harassed or assaulted by his fellow soldier is just a homophobe whose career will soon be over.  You put women into combat units where the high standards will have to be lowered to accommodate them, and between the two policies you weaken and dilute  the greatest fighting force the world has ever seen.  Then you tell the people it is too dangerous for them to be able to defend themselves with guns.  You tell them they should give up that right.
And when a bomb hits, who will the people turn to?
Let me be clear.  The State, cold and detached much like Obama himself, will be there, dictating, with their press lapdogs telling you terrorism is over and the economy is swell.  They will tell you whom to suspect of violence – Tea Partiers who have no record of violence.  They will punish you for suspecting Jihadists and their long history of violence.
If we are able to pull through this, if we are able to turn this reality around, it won’t be because of any help from Obama and his administration – it will be in spite of them.  It will be because we replace them with better servants of the people.  Luckily we are still fighting to keep our Constitutional rights, to preserve life, marriage, family, our livelihoods, we still respect our veterans and law enforcement and we still look to them to protect us.  But we are fighting tooth and nail and the outcome is anything but certain.
In Boston yesterday, the emergency responders, law enforcement, the doctors and nurses treating the wounded, and the just-everyday-people who helped those in need, they are the silver rays in this dark scene.  Their existence is what shows us that our faith in humanity should still burn bright, that we must keep fighting.  My heart breaks for those who lost loved ones, for those who were wounded and suffered the trauma of this attack.  I am sick about it.  Boston is close to my heart.  It was where my mom and grandparents grew up, where my parents met, where my brother was born.  I’m glad it didn’t harm more people.  I’m praying for all those affected.  I’m praying for our country.
I have not lost faith in my fellows or humanity.  It is Obama and his administration (and its surrogate, the media) – from whom the rest of the country is supposed to take its cues – that has long since lost my faith.  I am hoping that more people are waking up and will help us fight this.  As events like the Hassan massacre and its anything-but-swift justice, the Benghazi attack and Obama’s cover-up, and now the Boston Marathon bombing take place, I hope more people will wake as we sound the alarm that tyranny has its hands around our collective throat and we must free ourselves before it is too late.

Abortion Clinic Investigation

Verne Strickland USA DOT COM  April 16, 2013

I have searched for this exact picture of the Gosnell House of Horrors. I saw it on the internet and lost track of it. I'm so glad I located it. The gloomy, forbidding exterior is deeply repugnant, conveying the grisly mood of the evil that went on inside. Death, murder, slaughter and torture visited on the innocent unborn and newborn here at the dirty red brick building in a seedy Philadelphia neighborhood.  In that regard, I think it is a wonderfully descriptive facade. I hope this will be preserved to become a shrine to the hapless babies and pregnant women who suffered and died at the hands of  Dr. Kermit Gosnell, unlicensed "obstetrician" and mass murderer.

Horrific allegations are emerging in Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell's murder trial.
Gosnell, 72, is accused of using unfathomable abortion procedures on inner-city patients who were well into their third trimester at an unsanitary, bloody, and utterly gruesome clinic called the Women's Medical Society.
While he's only charged with killing seven live babies, prosecutors believe Gosnell killed hundreds of infants and destroyed related records, according to a grand jury report.

During the trial, ex-clinic employee Stephen Massof testified he "snipped" babies' spinal cords to kill them after delivering them live.

Gosnell is accused of killing seven newborns and a 41-year-old refugee from Nepal who was getting an illegal late-term abortion. He was charged with murder in January 2011 after a grand jury handed down a graphic and disturbing 281-page report on his case.

Gosnell — who wasn't licensed to practice obstetrics and gynecology — illegally peddled pain killers during the day and murdered babies at night, according to the report.

He allegedly had his staff give women pills to induce labor and showed up around 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. Often, the women had already given birth. Here's how he dealt with the aftermath, according to the grand jury's report.

"When you perform late-term 'abortions' by inducing labor, you get babies. Live, breathing, squirming babies. By 24 weeks, most babies born prematurely will survive if they receive appropriate medical care. But that was not what the Women’s Medical Society was about. Gosnell had a simple solution for the unwanted babies he delivered: he killed them. He didn’t call it that. He called it 'ensuring fetal demise.' The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors into the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord. He called that 'snipping.'"

Gosnell ran his abortion clinic for decades, and he "snipped" hundreds of babies' necks over the years, according to the grand jury report. His clinic hadn't been inspected since 1993 though. That's when Philadelphia officials stopped inspecting abortion facilities so women wouldn't face extra barriers when getting abortions, according to the report.

In Feburary 2010 the FBI and other law enforcement finally raided his facility following reports that he'd been writing illegal prescriptions. Here's what they found, according to the grand jury's report:

"There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets."

Most disturbingly, investigators say they found a row of jars with the severed feet of fetuses, which the grand jury said defied explanation.

Gosnell could get the death penalty. His lawyer says no babies were ever born alive, the AP has reported.

Boston Massacre -- innocent Americans struck down and bloodied by wanton terrorist attack


Look at these wonderful Americans -- struck down by evil while celebrating with their families and friends. It will be found that this terrorist attack is rooted in some way in radical Islam -- and sown among us by a home-grown fanatic or a foreign jihadist with U.S. connections. Has all the markings of this. Just look at our people, bloodied and in shock. God help us to protect our land and obliterate our oppressors. How dare they do this! They are blood enemies of Christian faithful.

It is a despicable disgrace that drug-addicted, diseased members of entire generations of African-Americans and Latinos were massively thrown into horrific prisons that mainly exposed them to the vices of violent criminal practices. Then these victims of brutal long periods of unjust incarceration were dumped back into communities without any hope or chance for gainful employment, which only resulted in the downward spiral of self-destruction, youth gun violence, poverty and the rise of a cold-hearted prison culture that rules most of streets today across the nation. But all of this can be challenged and changed. Yet it is with a renewed sense of urgency that we must speak out and build an effective movement. The lives of millions of people are at stake.
Upon reflecting with my friend, Dr. Boyce Watkins, recently, we asked ourselves how we could we engage our collective resources to do something about this injustice. It hit me that there was no greater contribution that I have made in my lifetime than the effort that I helped to wage 10 years ago with Dr. Ben Chavis, Andrew Cuomo, the Drug Policy Alliance, the hip-hop community and a coalition of politicians, activists, artists, celebrities and other concerned people to reform and end the Rockefeller Drug Laws in New York, then the harshest drug laws in the country. When Puffy, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Wyclef, the Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan, Mariah Carey and countless other celebrities jumped on the stage in front of 100,000 people in downtown NYC, it was that collective power of popular culture that made the media and politicians pay attention to the needs of the people. The demand for change resulted in thousands of people in NY being released from prison, after Republican Gov. Pataki and later Democratic Gov. Paterson ultimately reformed these draconian laws.

Since that time, we have seen a dramatic shift in the public's opinion on how we can reduce crime and how we can alleviate the suffering of addiction of millions of Americans. No longer do we believe that the suppression-based model of the past has more effective results than a prevention and rehabilitation model of the future that many states have already implemented. We have been encouraged by action taken by President Obama on federal policy, including the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, as well as significant investments in re-entry programs, "problem-solving" courts, prevention and treatment programs. As we enter the second term, we know that there is no time to waste and that is why we are doubling down our efforts to work with the president in his desire to end the "War on Drugs" once and for all.
Tomorrow we will release a letter to President Obama, co-authored by myself and Dr. Boyce Watkins, signed by over 175 of the most influential people in America, offering the president our support in creating a new strategy to advance a national effort to raise awareness on this issue and to be a nucleus for a huge campaign to end these draconian laws and prison sentences across America. If those of us who have a public profile have the ability to uplift others, then it is our duty to do so. Furthermore, during a very difficult economic time, we must find ways to reduce our government spending, while maintaining safe and healthy communities. Instead of investing in building more prisons, let's invest in building better schools!
We will be asking all of you to join us on our cyber march on Washington, where we will use every resource from newspapers to television, but especially the internet and popular culture to educate and engage the masses to push for the end of the war. In anticipation of this movement, we urge you all to turn on PBS tonight and watch the critically acclaimed film The House I Live In, which chronicles the entire failure of the "War on Drugs." When you wake up on Tuesday morning, go to and let's go to work!
This is our moment to take back our streets. Our moment to uplift our people. Our moment to force a disarmament of weapons of war that have been used against our communities. Join us. Connect with us. Build with us. The time has finally come to change what has been referred by many as the new "Jim Crow." But we know that the transformative power of the people organized and mobilized for what is right is always stronger than the forces of wrong. Freedom is in our sights. Justice is on the horizon. And soon enough, we will make sure that America no longer holds the title of the world's most populated prison system.
