    Bombing suspect reportedly a fan of al-Qaida magazine and Alex Jones website Videos on the Internet and an online jihadist magazine may have played a part in the Boston Marathon bombings suspects’ self-radicalization, according to reports. New accounts say the brothers learned how to build a bomb from the online magazine, Inspire, which gave instructions on how to make them with a pressure cooker. Pressure cooker bombs, authorities say, were used in the attacks at the Boston Marathon. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect, reportedly told investigators there was no foreign influence on him and his brother. But apparently the brothers...
  • Ron Paul: Know Who’s Really Behind Islamic Terrorism? The Jews.

    12/30/2011 12:24:19 PM PST · by mnehring · 86 replies
    One of the more insane claims in Ron Paul’s newsletters was that the Israelis were behind the WTC bombings in 1993: Whether [the 1993 World Trade Center bombing] was a setup by the Israeli Mossad, as a Jewish friend of mine suspects, or was truly a retaliation by the Islamic fundamentalists, matters little. This claim is of course so ridiculous and absurd that even Paul has to protect himself by claiming that “a Jewish friend” told him about it. What a handy rhetorical device! If only Paul had had the foresight to couch all his racist remarks in the newsletters...

    The Delft University of Technology, Architecture School collapsed in a pancake reaction to a fire. Let me repeat that .... the School Of Architecture. I'm highly doubtful they built a deficient building for themselves. Steel frame high rise building collapses and is utterly destroyed by a fire begun by a shorted out coffee pot. It wasn't bombs, renegade black-ops, secret demolition, cruise missiles or remotely controlled fake 737s that brought down the architecture school's steel frame building. It was fire that weakened the interior steel beam structure to the point that the weight and mass from above finally collapsed under the weight....
  • MSNBC Works with Alex Jones to Discredit Tea Party Movement

    Radio host Alex Jones, who believes that 9/11 was a U.S. government plot and "inside job" conspiracy, is featured in Chris Matthews' Wednesday documentary on MSNBC as a leader of the "New Right" and the Tea Party movement. But Jones has absolutely nothing to do with the conservative or Tea Party movements. In the advance promotional advertisements for the program, Jones is shown saying that the U.S. has entered the phase of "deep tyranny." The promos make Jones appear to be the undisputed leader of the "New Right" and the Tea Party movement. But in fact, a video shows Jones...

    "…The more terrifying the occasion for defense, the closer will become the organization and the more coercive the influence upon each member of the herd. War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to become—the inexorable arbiter and determinant of men’s business and attitudes and opinions…" -Randolph Bourne Dear...

    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday called the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks a "big lie" used by the U.S. as an excuse for the war on terror, state media reported.Ahmadinejad's comments, made during an address to Intelligence Ministry staff, come amid escalating tensions between the West and Tehran over its disputed nuclear program. They show that Iran has no intention of toning itself down even with tighter sanctions looming because of its refusal to halt uranium enrichment. "September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a...
  • Medina refuses support of GOP ticket, suggests third-party activity (TX Gov)

    LUBBOCK – Candidate for the Republican nomination for Texas governor Debra Medina, in a Thursday appearance on radio show Pratt on Texas, refused to commit to support the Republican nominee for Texas governor if she is not the Party’s nominee. Medina hinted at there being other candidates on the November ballot she might support. Pratt on Texas host Robert Pratt asked Ms. Medina, the former Wharton County chairwoman, "If you run through this election and are not the nominee of the Republican Party, will you wholeheartedly endorse and support the Party’s nominee or is there some threat of some type...

    Lytle is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of town, one of hundreds that dot the vast flat ranchlands of southern Texas. A smear of houses by the main highway between San Antonio and Laredo. Population: 2,383. The first streets only got paved here in the years after the second world war. A sewage system took a little longer, not being built until the 1960s. In short, Lytle, Texas, has never been big enough to have much impact on the politics of the Lone Star state. And few Texas politicians have ever paid much attention to it.

    AUSTIN – Insurgent candidate Debra Medina has lost some ground in the Republican governor's race after a controversial radio interview about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, according to a new poll that also shows that Gov. Rick Perry would easily prevail in a potential runoff against his leading challenger, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Perry led Hutchison 40 percent to 31 percent, while Medina had 20 percent, according to the survey of likely voters in next Tuesday's Republican primary. The survey also showed former Houston Mayor Bill White with 59 percent over his six rivals in the Democratic governor's race, well...

    So I get a call this morning from a polling company. (I like getting these political survey calls; I like making the callers laugh.) The questions all concerned the possible special election for Kay-Baby's Senate seat, which she swears she will vacate (I have my doubts). Although the poller asked about many candidates, the questions all seemed to center around Democrat John Sharp. The list of possible candidates running against Sharp included: David DewhurstDan PatrickFlorence ShapiroRoger WilliamsMichael WilliamsElizabeth Somebody Somebody; andDebra Medina There were three or four others, whose names I didn't recognize. The poller asked who I would vote...

    A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center.

    FORT WORTH -- Marvin Bahnman doesn't like where the country is headed. He believes in small government, fiscal responsibility and conservatism. So he carried a sign that said "You can't fix stupid, but you can vote them out" outside the Cowtown Coliseum in the Stockyards, where a get-out-the-vote rally Saturday drew supporters of the Tea Party and 912 Fort Worth grassroots movements. "I'm not a Republican," said Bahnman, 74, of Fort Worth. "I am a conservative." Inside the coliseum, decorated with candidate signs, flags and balloons, dozens of candidates on the March 2 Republican primary ballot spoke to hundreds gathered...

    All I am hearing now from this wonderful conference at CPAC where many patriots came out and spoke to the heart of how we can work together to stop the Obama agenda are the results of this straw poll. These people dont represent a bunch of kooks like the left and to see that a man like Ron Paul win a poll that represented this event is all a bunch of nonsnese (results were booed) that is intended to undermine us. I dont know how they came up with the numbers but my gut tells me that the left co...

    WHARTON -- It began as a battle of the titans, with Rick Perry -- the longest serving governor in Texas history -- being challenged in the GOP primary by the state's senior U.S. senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison. But as the multimillion-dollar contest comes to a close, Perry's bid for another four-year term appears to hinge not only on Hutchison's strength but on the fate of the third candidate in the race -- Debra Medina, a once-obscure insurgent whose showing in the March 2 primary will decide whether Perry wins outright or faces an April runoff. With Perry holding a seemingly...

    Glenn Beck has shown himself to be a hypocrite. In a recent radio interview, Beck prejudged Debra Medina to be a 911 Truther. He has maintained for years, that anyone who questions the official government story is an idiot. Medina admitted there are a lot of good questions that have not been answered, so Beck, has now been telling his audience ever since that she is a radical idiot 911 truther-but the other day-he admitted that he himself has questions about 911-So that would make him one of the dangerous kooks that he tell his audience to avoid and shun-

    In an obvious ambush of Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina, Fox News commentator Glen Beck told Medina in a radio interview that he had received emails from listeners saying that she was a 9/11 truther, that is, a person who believes that the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 attacks. Medina failed to specifically deny the charge, indicated that she didn’t have an opinion on the matter, stated that some good questions had been raised about the issue, and said that the American people had not seen all the evidence. Medina later issued a statement stating that she has...

    Perry seems to rely on two familiar slogans: “Keep D.C. out of Texas,” which is his push-back to Kay Bailey Hutchison who, for all intents and purposes, cut her own throat with conservatives when she voted “Yes” for the federal bailout in 2008; and “Texas – We’re better off than the other states.” I’ve never heard Medina deny that Texas is better off than the other states. She does say; however, that Texas could be doing better. You could be doing better. Medina wants to get rid of the state property tax. Any objections? She wants to replace it with...

    Let’s say I had a television show and I asked a political candidate some questions regarding, let’s say, about the other entrenched lifer candidates, local issues, state and federal issues, the Constitution, and then asked if he or she believed Babe Ruth was really black or if Barack Obama was really a United States citizen or if there was a 9/11 conspiracy. Let’s say an answer was given I didn’t like. Would that alone disqualify me from holding public office? I will admit, I did like some of the things Beck’s said over the last year on Fox News and...

After comments on Glenn Beck's radio show Thursday that seemed to support 9/11 conspiracy theories, she says she was set up by her opponents. -snip- We sat down with Medina to put the comments and her campaign in focus. It is seemingly all Debra Medina can talk about now. -snip- In her news conference Friday, it is clear Medina was trying to clean up the mess. But in our interview with her hours after the Beck radio show, she repeated there are...

    I was asked a question on the Glenn Beck show today regarding my thoughts on the so-called 9/11 truth movement. I have never been involved with the 9/11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11. I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way. No one can deny that the events on 9/11 were a tragedy for all Americans and especially those families who lost loved ones. The question surprised me because it's...
