OUTRAGE: Officials Won’t Release Welfare Info for Dead Boston Terrorist, Citing His ‘Privacy Rights’
Stand With Arizona ^ | 04-25-2013 | John Hill

Who exactly do you represent? Gov. Deval Patrick dodges questions about how much welfare benefits
the Chechen terrorists got from his state, citing their "privacy".

-

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and his state agencies are refusing to release information on what government benefits Boston jihadist Tamerlan Tsarnaev received, following a national furor over reports he and his family received welfare.

Their reason? It would violate the dead terrorist's right to privacy!

That's right. Led by the stalwart Boston Herald, media entities pressed for info all day. Across the board, state agencies flatly refused to provide information about the taxpayer-funded lifestyle for the 26-year-old man and his brother and accomplice Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.

On EBT card status or spending, the Mass. state welfare spokesman would only say Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife and 3-year-old daughter received benefits that ended in 2012. He declined further comment.

On unemployment compensation, the Mass. labor department spokesman refused to disclose whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev ever collected, saying it was “confidential and not a matter of public record.”

On public housing, officials ducked questions on whether the brothers were ever on Section 8 assistance.

Friends and relatives report that the Chechen jihadist who trained to murder Americans had received ALL of these benefits on the taxpayer's dime, but our public officials are protecting his "privacy" - and he wasn't even a citizen!

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that Gov. Patrick's bureaucrats are going to such lengths to protect the "privacy" of a deceased non-citizen Muslim terrorist who murdered 4 people, including an 8-year old boy.

After all this is the same governor who protects the privacy of illegal alien criminals, by refusing to participate in the “Secure Communities” program wherein suspects’ fingerprints are sent to the FBI to be checked for immigration status. Because of Gov, Patrick's refusal, an Ecuadorean illegal who assaulted a police officer in 2009 was never deported as required by law. That illegal, Nicolas Guaman, went on to DUI-kill student Matthew Denice - dragging his body under his truck for half a mile.

And the Feds got into the rally-round-the-terrorist act today too!

When pressed on whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev had an "Obama Phone" - and may have possibly even used one to trigger the Boston Marathon bombs - the Federal Communications Commission remained tight-lipped, refusing to say whether either brother had a government-paid cellphone, also citing privacy laws.

Remember - this is the same Administration that recently tried (and failed) to shred Federal HIPAA healthcare privacy laws to permit your doctor to secretly report that you were mentally ill - in order to have your guns taken away. But they are protecting the privacy of a terrorist? Seriously?

One Democratic congressman blasted both the Mass. and Federal governments, demanding the public's right to know how taxpayers were underwriting the jihadist Tsarnaevs.

Yeah, right, dead terrorists have privacy rights but we don’t have the right to know who takes our money and spends it on killing innocent civilians.

Yet lay abiding gun owners have no right to privacy at all.

Hey Guv!

Since when do dead terrorists have “privacy rights”?

What you’re telling us is that you don’t want folks to know how much of our tax money is funding foreign welfare cheats.

DEMOCRAT Gorvernor Patrick is just one of many of our corrupt liberal ruling class circling the wagons to try to shield the extent to which they have been going to support and to enable various anti-American entities such as the Moslem jihadists.

Folks have begun connecting way too many dots!

This should be a major issue in the special MA special election for the U.S. Senate seat that Kerry gave up to go to SoS. Let’s see just how bad the average MA voter is or is not. This is as good an opportunity as they will have to show what they are.

It’s all a lie and a charade to protect THEM from criticism over how much of the public’s money they gave to terrorists. I think inquiring minds want to know just how screwed up Boston and this country really are.

The lesson:

Illegals have privacy.

Those that follow the system, do not.

He’s a KILLER and he’s dead.

Besides aren’t dems the ones telling us we have to give up our privacy rights?

Guess they mean middle class citizens must give up their rights... but not criminals and terrorists...

Can you imagine how insulted they must feel, after what they just went through?

Patriots who have a grip on basic constitutonal law can tell you that privacy rights are beside the point concerning this issue. The problem is that, with the exception of military purposes, none of the clauses in Congress's Article I, Section 8-limited powers reasonably give Congress the power to appropriate funds to buy phones for ordinary citizens, no matter how rich or poor they are.

In fact, as mentioned in related threads, Justice John Marshall had officially clarified that Congress is prohibited from laying taxes for any purpose that it cannot justify under its Article I, Section 8-limited powers, using tax dollars to buy phones for citizens being a 10th Amendment-protected state power.

"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

EXACTLY! It's the rat's "right" to privacy that they're concerned about. Our rat PUBLIC SERVANTS in action. All they care about is keeping their gravy train going. Of course the voters won't really care - it's got to be some white guy's fault - some Tea Party person - some mean wing nut. The rats are outrageously blatant because they know they'll get away with it.

Good point. The citizens of Watertown had NO rights to privacy during the time this bastard was on the loose. It's pretty obvious the Dems are hiding embarrassing or even incriminating information, and perhaps not what we're expecting either.

Paging Judicial Watch!

We can know who owns a gun in N.Y. state, but not how much we we’re robbed by this scumbag family? By this, I mean the bomber’s family. We need to set up a hacking group for this stuff.

Cool! Public rights have become private rights!

So the public shouldn't have to fund Private rights groups!

Public assistance will have to be converted to private assistance now! DEFUND DEFUND DEFUND.

I say we contact Darryl Issa and have him drag Patrick’s ass before the House Oversight Committee. Have him explain how many tax dollars were used to help sponsor these terrorists.

These are State Sponsored Terrorists and the State that sponsored them is Massachusetts.

I am willing to bet that the cell phones they used to detonate the bombs were Obamaphones.

It used to be when a foreigner came to this country with a real green card (sponsored by some citizen, normally), that person (sponsor) was required to attest they WOULD NOT LET the person involved become a public burden. It was this way in 1976 when I brought my wife here. She had REAL interviews with INS, lots of them. She had to be able to speak real English, she had to really pass tests, etc.

That no longer appears to be the case. Our government is so invested in creating new Democrat voters, they are willing to allow Muslim terrorists in, damned the cost.

What is even more amazing to me is that Patrick and the other officials actually believe that they can keep this information secret. No way. It’s gonna come out...there will be hell to pay until it does..it would have made far more sense for them to release it immediately..

Looked like RC electronics from the pictures. Or just a timer. Takes two phones (one on each end) and those were not cell phone guts (at least from the pics I saw).

You're right GeorgeWashingtonsGhost.

Honest law biding citizens were forced to give up privacy rights. But the figgin killers - the lowlifes who planted bombs next to children? No, their privacy must be protected?

Something's wrong here ...
