Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Family Received Welfare
Weekly Standard ^ | 4-24-2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 04/24/2013 4:49:45 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was on welfare, sponsored by tax payers. Tsarnaev, now dead, is suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon last week.

"Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned," reports the Boston Herald.

"State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter. The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services said those benefits ended in 2012 when the couple stopped meeting income eligibility limits. Russell Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Katherine — who had converted to Islam — was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home.

"In addition, both of Tsarnaev’s parents received benefits, and accused brother bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger, according to the state."

And our government wants to bring in millions more...

Our government has not served us well.

Homeland Security failed miserably. They were too preoccupied with buying 2 billion rounds of ammo and harassing Americans to do their job.

The Federal Government has not been a good steward of our money.

I think a lot of that outrage is hypocritical, or (at best) naive.

Do you think anyone up there in Boston (or anywhere else, for that matter) would have been outraged over the public assistance given to these @ssholes if they hadn't detonated two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon last week?

Only so far as was being told to the public. Yes, you are absolutely correct. And leaks with anonymous source(s).

We get more news from foreign sources (mostly UK, sometimes elsewhere).

They were too preoccupied with buying 2 billion rounds of ammo and harassing Americans to do their job.

I disagree that they were not doing their job. Only the naive and credulous think that "Homeland Security's" job is protecting Americans. Its job is protecting the government from the people and harassing the people to make sure they know who's in charge. They were doing their job - especially when they marched Watertown residents out of their homes with guns in their faces.

The government doesn't care about a few terrorists. After all they only kill and maim the little people. The government is worried about things like massive civil disobedience. They're worried about the sheep waking up and kicking out the parasites. They're worried about people like McVeigh who actually target the government rather than random innocents.

In a time of economic trouble, the governments are planning on raising taxes via taxing the internet. This is not the action of a government that worries about its citizens.

I just have a hard time picturing a brainwashed jihad loving welfare slug who sits on the couch as his wife works 80 hours a week as a mastermind. Fits right in there with the Bengazi YouTube story.

Many are now asking how the two bombers lived so well and were able to finance their bombing activities with no visible means of support. Evening news reported dead bomber Tamleran leisurely drove up to NH in a luxury car (on the taxpayers’ dime) to a fireworks store (where sales are legal). This killer (using tax dollars) paid for two extra-large explosive devices-—at a cost of $200 each.

Taxpayers struggling to survive could not afford such an expenditure. But thanks to profitable US immigration laws, hate-filled criminals—financed with tax dollars—are able to harm and kill Americans using our tax dollars.

===============================================

HERE'S HOW THE TWO RUSSIAN IMMIGRANTS were funding their lavish lives---and munition purchases--on your dime. Russian emigres to the US claiming "asylum" receive a panoply of US freebies: they suck off American taxpayers bigtime---they collect generous monthly checks from SS without having put a dime into it.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old Chechen terrorist killed Friday morning in a wild shootout with Boston police, was a legal US resident. He could have been sent back to his homeland after a 2009 domestic violence conviction (wasn't his wife--the bum hit his grlfriend).

BUT thanks to Obama’s sucking up to ethnic solidarity terrorism, the prez sap-happily decreed that "deportations" are limited only to foreigners who committed “serious crimes”----Obama allowed the bomber to stay and do his dirty work.

The second bro/bomberDzhokhar Tsarnaev--now in a Boston hospital---was granted "asylum" in 2002.


After the murder of the MIT police officer, which occurred after the marathn bombings, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev rode in a carjacked auto. The murderous two then casually stopped at an ATM to withdraw cash.

The Chechneyan brothers did not seem to be "needy"----they were well-fed, attired in fashionable clothing---had cash in the bank---- and time and money to purchase components and make bombs. Traveled to Russia---(and elsewhere?) All without any visible means of support---like jobs.

There's a zillion ways the Chechneyan bombers were being financed by the same unsuspecting Bostonians they plotted asgainst....and other Americans. You can be sure the Brothers Tsarnaev knew the routine. Probably bought fake ID's to establish multiple identites to ride the US gravy train.

Claiming "asylum from Russian persecution" gets tham a wealth of tax-paid freebies---no questions asked----a policy dating back to WW 11. There's large SS checks, housing subsidies, instant welfare, food stamps, UI, EITC, SSI, education payments, free medical care.....and so on and so forth, ad infinitum, ad nauseaum.

“Katherine — who had converted to Islam — was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home.”


Now it would be justice to convict Katherine of welfare fraud. If she truly worked 80 per week, it seems her earnings would have exceeded Massachusetts Poverty Levels.

Also, convict her of income tax evasion as her job seemed to lend itself to cash payment.

Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Tamerlan's American wife, Katherine, a convert to Islam, and mother of his child, was working up to 80 hours as a home health aid (her dad is a doctor)---while Tamerlan lolled about at home.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old Chechen terrorist killed Friday morning in a wild shootout with Boston police could have been sent back to his homeland after a 2009 domestic violence conviction (no, wasn't his wife--the stay-at-home bum hit his girlfriend).

However, thanks to Obama’s sucking up to ethnic solidarity terrorism, the prez sap-happily decreed that "deportations" are limited only to foreigners who committed “serious crimes.”

"Tolerant and compassionate" Obama allowed the savage bomber to stay, collect tax dollars, and main and kill Americans.

There is rampant fraud in the Mass welfare system. It's well known. But Gov. Deval Patrick, Obama's mini-me, won't allow any investigatory efforts.

One state senator, Shawna O'Connor, who has a made a name for herself fighting EBT fraud, has been waiting six months for some general fraud statistics. Six months --with no hope of ever receiving any information.

Maybe the feds could extract this info, but look who's in charge.

I knew a woman who married a Muslim from Turkey. He immediately quit working , spending his time gambling in Atlantic City and hanging out with his relatives (who he got to bring here after he married an American) and barely even spoke to her after he got what he wanted. Oh. And they had a child, but that was “her problem” and he did nothing to help (including that nasty “working” stuff).

Re: Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Family Received Welfare

Nikita Khrushchev told us... "When it comes time for us to hang you, your capitalist will sell us the rope." And the Dems were just starting to put in place their liberal agenda when he said that.

Now, the Liberal Democrats have the state paying... the terrorists to kill us with taxpayers money. That is real progress--

AC, every single denizen of FR is OUTRAGED at welfare in general. Look at the growth of food stamps, welfare, and sloth under Obomber. It is single most corrosive agent that eats away at a Free Republic of men. It saps men of dignity, honor and self-respect. It creates strong resentment of the hand that feeds you and creates and sustains a permanent lower-class.

You are wrong as possibly can be.

No way that they financed those cars on welfare. They were either involved with some illegal drug activity or getting financed by some foreign entity. There is an extensive Chechen mafia that is intertwined with the islamist faction in that country.
