    The French and Indian War ended in 1763 with the French losing Canada and all their land east of the Mississippi River. King George III decided to leave troops in the American colonies in case of future French incursions or native uprisings. British troops were to be paid with taxes collected from the colonies: the Sugar Tax of 1764, the Stamp Tax of 1765 and the Townshend Acts of 1767, taxing glass, paint and paper. As the Colonies had no representative in Parliament, the cry arose, “No taxation without representation.” The King imposed Writs of Assistance in 1765 allowing British...

    The anti-police movement appears to be influencing how Islamists in Boston are reacting to the shooting of terror suspect Usaama Rahim and the investigation of David Wright. While some Muslim advocates are attempting to spark inner-city angst over the shooting by exploiting recent events in Ferguson, NYC, and Baltimore, others are putting pressure on the police as they investigate the terror plot. Rahim, the man who was shot by anti-terrorism officers in Boston yesterday, and Wright, the suspect now in custody, were allegedly ISIS-inspired jihadists who had planned to behead a police officer in a plot disturbingly reminiscent of the...

    The trauma nurses who took care of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev after his arrest have a straightforward explanation. “I don’t get to pick and choose my patients,” one told the Boston Globe. The three public defenders assigned to Tsarnaev would have been similarly constrained. But what about the two prominent defense lawyers who have offered their services? Why choose to represent a man accused of turning the Boston Marathon finish line into a war zone? Likewise, how can the lawyers representing Cleveland’s Ariel Castro fight for the alleged serial kidnapper and rapist? And what about the attorneys for the...

In 2007, a young Bosnian Muslim named Sulejman Talovic opened fire in the Trolley Square mall in Salt Lake City, killing five people and seriously injuring another four before being taken out by officers. There will be more to come, as long as we keep observing the modern world’s sick obsession with multiculturalism. As he was killing his victims, Talovic repeatedly proclaimed that Allah was great, and the night before the massacre...

    Among the many unanswered questions about the two Tsarnaev brothers accused of the Boston Marathon bombing is why, days after the attack, they were heading to the suburb of Watertown and its manicured lawns and tulips when police picked up their trail and began a chase. Investigators want to know what drew the accused bombers to the cluster of side streets in the blue-collar suburb, far from any major thoroughfare, especially if the brothers were on the run after their images had been shown on television by the FBI and after they had allegedly murdered MIT Police Officer Sean Collier....

    Nurses treating Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say their natural inclination toward compassion makes it difficult to see the 19-year-old as a possible terrorist. And they have to make concerted effort — and buddy-system pacts — to keep from referring to him with terms of endearment such as “hon.” One 29-year-old nurse said on Gawker: “When you’re in the room, it’s just a patient. You’re here to … make sure they’re feeling better. When you step away, you take it in. I am compassionate, that’s what we do. But should I be? The rest of the world hates him right...

    Before leaping to the conclusion that lawmen in Boston worked a miracle last month by locking the city down as they searched for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, consider the following: It was only after folks were told they could leave their homes that a private citizen spotted a trail of blood that led to the young man's hiding place and capture. This is important because Boston will now stand as a textbook case of what municipal police officers should do in an emergency. Close down businesses. Order people to stay in their homes. Keep folks off the streets. Search homes one by...

    Kizlyar, Russia - Last year, when Tamerlan Tsarnaev spent six months in the Russian region of Dagestan, he had a guide with an unusually deep knowledge of the local Islamist community: a distant cousin named Magomed Kartashov. Six years older than Tsarnaev, Kartashov is a former police officer and freestyle wrestler—and one of the region’s most prominent Islamists. In 2011 Kartashov founded and became the leader of an organization called the Union of the Just, whose members campaign for sharia law and pan-Islamic unity in Dagestan, often speaking out against U.S. policies across the Muslim world. The group publicly renounces...

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev was apparently too dangerous to be allowed to go to Mecca, but not Boston. Saudi Arabia unofficially says that if Janet Napolitano read her mail, the Boston bombing might have been prevented. Britain's Daily Mail reported Tuesday that, according to a senior Saudi Arabian official, the Saudi government last year issued a written warning to our Department of Homeland Security about the danger of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the dead lead suspect in last month's Boston Marathon bombings. Separate from Moscow's now-famous multiple warnings about Tsarnaev, the Saudi alert "was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen," according to...

    The bombs used in the Boston Marathon attack were built in the apartment that suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev shared with his wife and child, a U.S. law enforcement official with first-hand knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Thursday. The official was not authorized to release the information. Katherine Russell, Tsarnaev's widow, has remained largely out of view inside her parents' North Kingstown home since her husband's death. It remains unclear what, if anything, Tamerlan's widow might have known or suspected, the source added. According to her attorney, Amato DeLuca, the 24-year-old widow knew nothing of plans to bomb the race,...

    The instant Jim Asaiante heard the first explosion, he flashed back to Iraq. "That was an IED," he said to no one in particular. The former Army nurse fought the urge to rush toward the wounded. He knew there would be a second blast. Tending to soldiers blown up by roadside bombs had taught him that. Asaiante paused and waited a few seconds. The ground shook again, a percussive explosion that sent more people scrambling, more smoke roiling down Boylston Street. While most ran for their lives, first responders like Asaiante swooped into action. In the days to come, first...

    A drop in the bucket. Given Judy Clarke’s fee in the Susan Smith case, $100K probably isn’t much more than what you’ll wind up paying Dzhokhar’s lawyers to help him avoid the death penalty. And if they succeed, you’ll be paying for his upkeep for years and years and years after that. So poisonous are the politics of this that even local Democrats are vowing a full investigation. I thought the preferred “solution” here would be a variation of their response to Gosnell, i.e. what we need is more welfare/clinics so that impoverished people aren’t led down the wrong path....

    In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, investigators are looking into extremist ties between Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, including a suggestion by his mother that he travel to “Palestine” to conduct possible terrorist activities there. New wiretap evidence provided by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) to the Federal Bureau of Investigation suggests possible extremist influence by the mother of the two bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokar. In early 2011, the FSB had intercepted a called between Tamerlan and his mother, Zubeidat, where the two vaguely discussed jihad....

Reports say the FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were “stunned” when this judicial officer and lawyers from both sides showed up to read him his rights....

Two government officials said the CIA had Zubeidat Tsarnaeva’s name listed along with that of her son Tamerlan Tsarnaev after Russia contacted the agency in 2011 with concerns that the two were religious militants about to travel to Russia. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

    Many commentators have criticized the Obama administration for prosecuting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev criminally, which entailed giving him Miranda rights and providing him with a lawyer. But apart from the wisdom, in principle, of promptly commencing a criminal prosecution in this case, the sequence of events raises obvious questions about what the administration is up to. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured last Friday evening. At that time, his condition was described as critical. He had been shot multiple times, had lost a great deal of blood, and doubt was expressed as to whether he would live. Nevertheless, by Monday morning, the administration had...

As good Americans we’re supposed to pretend that immigrants (I’m married to a legal immigrant, by the way, so no, Grover Norquist, I’m not “anti-immigrant”) don’t come here to get on welfare. Even though millions of immigrants do come here, legally or otherwise, and then get on welfare.

Released for distribution in the United States, the update allegedly provided "critical fixes improving security, stability and performance," while also addressing a number of "high priority bugs," which many in the Muslim world see as an insult to their way of life. "Who are they to tell us that we need an update?" an imam addressed a raging crowd of followers in Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka. "The very...

    From the Boston Herald late last night, Full text of welfare statement on Tsarnaev brothers Statement on Tsarnaev Brothers Department of Transitional Assistance Status: “The brothers were not receiving transitional assistance benefits at the time of the incident and have not received any transitional assistance benefits this year. The Tsarnaevs’ parents are former recipients of transitional assistance benefits, and both Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev received benefits through their parents when they were younger. Separately, Tamerlan and his family received benefits until 2012, when the family became ineligible based on their income.” — Alec Loftus, communications director, MA Health and Human...
  • Battenfeld: Political ploy masked as gratitude? No thank you (Dem Chairwoman DWS, naturally)

    The Boston Herald ^ | April 23, 2013 | Joe Battenfeld
    You knew it would happen eventually, but so soon? It took only one week for a partisan group — in this case the Democratic Party — to turn the terror bombings in Boston into a crass political ploy. Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was behind this tasteless tactic, sending out an email and tweet asking people to sign a supposed “thank you note” to the first responders. That would be nice except for the fact that in order to “sign” the note, you have to give the Democratic party your email account and ZIP code. “We’ll collect every...
  • WashPost Suggests It's Not the Tsarnaevs That Are Sick, But Islamophobic Americans

    Newsbusters ^ | April 23, 2013 | Tim Graham
    The Washington Post tried to turn the camera lens around on the violent Tsarnaev brothers. Their arrogant liberal assumption: the real question is what this says about us backwards Americans, not about the bombers. The headline in huge type was “Who do we think they are? The answer says a lot about who we are.”What we are, apparently, is a sad gathering of “Islamophobes,” because the story is a collection of quotes from Muslim activists and authors who tweeted “please don’t be a Muslim” and feared that Muslim assailants would spur Americans to practice “discrimination or retaliation or shame.” Even...

    We’re often told that our liberties are under assault. The right warns that our Big Government nanny state is plotting to seize our guns and our Big Gulps, while strangling our economic freedom with taxes and regulations. The left rails against our Big Government security state—the drone warfare, indefinite detention and electronic surveillance that make the war on terror sound like an Orwellian nightmare. The National Rifle Association had just finished bellowing about background checks violating our Second Amendment rights when the American Civil Liberties Union started shrieking about the FBI violating the Boston bombing suspect’s Miranda rights. America was...

    Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an ardent reader of jihadist websites and extremist propaganda, U.S. officials said Tuesday, adding another piece to the body of evidence they say suggests the two brothers were motivated by an anti-American, radical version of Islam. ---snip--- On Tuesday, two officials said the older brother frequently looked at extremist sites, including Inspire magazine, an English-language online publication produced by al-Qaida's Yemen affiliate. The magazine has endorsed lone-wolf terror attacks....

    World Net Daily ^ | 4/22/2013 | Patrick J. Buchanan
    Pat Buchanan wonders if bombers are now inspirations for other 'sick souls within' “Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they’ve already failed,” says President Obama of the Boston Marathon bombers. “They failed because the people of Boston refused to be intimidated. They failed because as Americans we refuse to be terrorized.” Bostonians did react splendidly. From first responders to folks who gave blood, from hospital staffs to the FBI, ATF and state troopers, from the Boston and Watertown cops to the hostage rescue team that talked Dzhokhar Tsarnaev out of that boat. But did the Brothers Tsarnaev really fail...

    Much of Iran’s media today panicked, attacking WND reports on the Islamic regime’s involvement in the Boston Marathon bombings and claiming Washington is behind the WND reports so the U.S. can attack other countries. WND’s source for the report regarding Iran’s involvement in the bombings, a member of the regime’s intelligence services, said today regime officials fear a campaign in the United States for a retaliatory attack on Iran similar to what happened to Afghanistan after 9/11.

    UN Human Rights Council “expert” Richard Falk has published a statement saying Bostonians got what they deserved in last week’s terror attack. He quotes W.H. Auden to make his point: "to whom evil is done/do evil in return.” Richard Falk is the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” He has held the post since 2008, despite exposure as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. In his latest rant, published online on April 21, 2013 by Falk repeats the libel that prior to 9/11 President George W. Bush was seeking a “pretext”...

    Nine people were killed aboard the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara after IDF troops encountered violent resistance by “peace activists” when they boarded the ship. The so-called “peace activists” were armed with an assortment of weapons. They threw stun grenades and beat the Israeli soldiers with pipes and chains. The ship failed to comply to Israeli commands before it was boarded. The terrorists planned the surprise attack on the Israeli troops in advance. This weekend Secretary of State John Kerry compared the Boston Marathon victims to the dead Mavi Maramara terrorists. Israel National News reported, via Israel Matsav: Speaking at Istanbul, Turkey,...
