Boston Globe Freaks Over Jeb's Accidental Deep Politics

Here’s a slightly complex one with a very simple message:

The Boston Globe just ran an item implicitly questioning the judgment of a Super PAC supporting Jeb Bush. The basis? The PAC ran an ad featuring Ben Swann, a newscaster who has doubts about the official Boston Marathon Bombing story. The Globe has no beef with the ad itself, which like many others takes Marco Rubio to task for missing Senate votes. Instead, it is who is shown View article …

Why Investigations of ‘Intelligence’ Failures Go Nowhere

 

A battle has been raging between numerous executive agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) — and their watchdogs, inspector-general overseers, and the various oversight committees in Congress.

 

The FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency — and even the Peace Corps — have become increasingly uncooperative with those tasked with keeping them in line.

 

This, combined with the well-documented retaliation against government whistleblowers, makes it clear that the executive branch under President Obama has not lived up to the promise of a new era of transparency made by candidate Obama. Indeed, things have gotten worse.

San Bernardino: What Did Gov Know About Shooters?

It’s starting to look like there are some eerie parallels between the San Bernardino shooting and the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

 

After the Boston bombing, authorities were quick to deny any previous knowledge of the men they identified as the bombers. Then, over time, the public learned that — oops — maybe law enforcement did know significantly more than they initially let on.

 

After the San Bernardino suspects died in a hail of bullets, federal and local law enforcement officials alike claimed to have had no previous interaction with or interest in Syed Farook or his wife, Tashfeen Malik, at any View article …

New Book on CIA Master-Plotter Dulles, Sneak Peek: Part 2

No one can possibly understand the precarious state of American democracy today without scrutinizing the often secret path the country was taken on by those in power from the 1950s to the present.

 

Among the elemental figures in forging that path was Allen Dulles.

 

He was the most powerful, and, it appears — the most sinister — director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Given that outfit’s history, that’s some accomplishment.

 

Dulles’s job, simply put, was to hijack the US government to benefit the wealthy.

 

Studying how this worked is a worthwhile pursuit. That’s why we decided to excerpt a few parts of David View article …

RussRant: Ben Carson Gets Boston Bombing Wrong

Ben Carson, now a leading candidate in the polls, has drawn criticism for some of his more extreme statements about foreigners — and, like so many of his fellow GOP candidates, has had to step back and declare he was misunderstood.

 

But one thing he hasn’t taken flak for was a comment explaining why the United States should be wary of taking in Syrians and other Middle Eastern immigrants. His reason? He cited the Tsarnaevs and the Boston Marathon Bombing:

 

“I would recognize that bringing in people from the Middle East right now carries extra danger,” View article …

Did Facebook Influence Verdict in Tsarnaev Trial?

When convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers filed a motion last month requesting a new trial, at a different venue, a key reason was generally overlooked in superficial media coverage. The legal team based its filing in large part on evidence it says shows at least some of the jurors were exposed to “inflammatory” information on their social media feeds during the trial.

 

“The social media activity of individual jurors and of their social media contacts is highly relevant to the question of venue, because it further demonstrates a constitutionally-intolerable level of risk to the View article …

Boston Media Suddenly Unhinged Over Marathon Trial

The Boston media are furious at information being withheld about the Boston Marathon bombing. But wait — it isn’t what you think. No, they have not suddenly gotten curious about the sorts of inconsistencies, anomalies and outright lies that WhoWhatWhy has documented in approximately 80 articles now.

 

No, they just want access to jurors, presumably to tease out still more maudlin “human interest” stories rather than probe for the truth that appears to be hiding in plain sight.
