    BATTLEFIELD USA: De Facto State of Martial Law Declared In Boston *Pics From the War Zone*

    As news of last night’s incident in Watertown, Massachusetts spread, police from all over the North East converged, once again, on Boston. Along with them were elements of the National Guard and U.S. military.

    Though an official announcement has not been made, and likely will not be made, the entire Boston metropolitan area is now in complete lock-down in what can only be described as a de facto state of martial law.

    By all accounts, law enforcement and military personnel have classified  Boston and surrounding towns a war-zone, especially after a gunfight yesterday evening that left one of the Boston Marathon Bombers dead and the other still at large. In a video of the early morning engagement, rapid gunfire and explosive detonations, believed to be more ‘pressure cooker’ bombs, can be heard as police and residents scrambled.

    This has led to shelter-in-place orders being issued by officials, a widespread militarization of nearly a hundred square miles surrounding Boston, and deserted streets throughout the city.

    Military personnel have reportedly been patrolling streets, performing door-to-door searches, and defusing or detonating suspected explosive devices.

    Section 1031 of the controversial National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 effectively declares the United States a battlefield, suspends the U.S. Constitution and essentially allows the President, through the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. military, to deploy assets in this war zone as he sees fit:

    Section 1031 of the NDAA bill, which itself defines the entirety of the United States as a “battlefield,” allows American citizens to be snatched from the streets, carted off to a foreign detention camp and held indefinitely without trial. The bill states that “any person who has committed a belligerent act” faces indefinite detention, but no trial or evidence has to be presented, the White House merely needs to make the accusation.

    Paul said he saw significance in “the announcement and the arrogance of it all,” making reference to the Obama administration’s claim that it can now assassinate American citizens anywhere in the world and noting that the passage of the NDAA bill is an effort to codify the policy into law.

    “This is a giant step – this should be the biggest news going right now – literally legalizing martial law,” said Paul, noting that the subject did not come up at all in any of the Republican debates.

        What can be expected?

        They just need an excuse to stand around and chew the cud, wasting people’s hard-earned money. Some people call them pigs but it looks like they’re just simple cows chewing grass rather than eating shit. Watch how most of them are standing around, doing practically nothing, laughing, joking, pretending like they’re the biggest shit on the planet.

        Someone, please tell me, are they jack-booted thugs?

            This is the opening shot, dress rehearsal. Wait till they bring out the razor wire ala Baghdad. Look how easily and docilely the home of the Revolutionary War patriots on Patriots Day, no less, let these Rothschild goons in. Spirit of ’76 is gone for good.

            Meanwhile, to rub it in further, a WACO chem plant has been attacked – on the anniversary of the WACO jackboot massacre- while in the midst of ‘mass casualty drills’. and most of our Pats dont even get it.

                I can tell you whats going on here in TX.
                This blast has cause much more damage then is being report or should I say not reported. The amount of people not accounted for is alsmost 90 we know for a fact that all first responseders did not make and probally never be found being so close to the blast.A small town is almost wiped away along with a few friends. And what respect do we get form our Gov. a f–king phone call… Makes me sick..Turn on the news nothing but Boston, which to me looks like a HollyWoood movie gone bad..Ok now rant Over… I’ll take my seat back on the sidelines..

                  DPS know that many of us out here DO care about West. It would make me mad too if this was my town and loss of life much greater than Boston (also a tragedy) and yet not being reported nearly to any extent.

                  Having watched the funerals of the first responders in TX, I am even more disgusted by a pack of civilian firemen having the nerve to bury their dead under the US flag, something reserved, until very recent times, for US military and a few Federal officials.

                  It started with the cops, most of whom were actually veterans back during the draft days, but no longer are.
                  Then some asswipe decided that cops were fighting some “national war on drugs” and deserved military funerals even if they had never served a day serving their Nation and its flag. Now, it seems to be pretty much accepted, and next it seems that firemen, EMTs and probably the fucking local librarians are going to get the traditional military funerals.

                  I have no unusual quarrel with cops or firemen, other than the fact that cops are largely bureaucratic lackeys for whom the Constitution is made of rubber, and who largely lack the balls to actually defend our rights against their bosses.

                  However, I fail to see why they are too embarrassed to be buried under their own State or City flag, and feel compelled to steal the honor of those who actually put their lives at risk defending their COUNTRY. Instead of pretending that you belong to a military organization, why not grow a pair and JOIN ONE? Take the risk if you want the privileges.

                  I spent 21 yrs on active duty, several combat tours. I earned my US flag burial at FAR more risk than any cop is likely to ever see.

                  I don’t expect to be buried under a NY State or Boston flag, or wearing a cop’s badge or uniform that I DID NOT EARN.

                  I expect the same courtesy.

                From the people I know there, it is a mess. My great uncle was in the nursing home and did not make it. My cousin’s house and cars were destroyed…but they are alive. With a blast that strong, well, finding the remains of some might not happen. And it saddens me because West, Tx has nothing but good, wholesome, Americans.

                However, something stinks really bad. Though I hope this is only a horrific accident…the fertilizer plant was apparently in a lawsuit with Monsanto. This should be treated as a crime scene.

                The exact cause of the explosion at the fertilizer plant in West, Texas has yet to be determined. For all we know, it might…I repeat…MIGHT have been of criminal nature. The law enforcement agencies here are treating it as a crime scene. If it does turn out to be of suspicious origin, then they’ll have to figure out whether it was merely a criminal act…or something more menacing. Nobody knows right now. And to say that it’s one or the other for sure, would be pure speculation. In MOST situations in life….stuff just happens.

                But police enforcement has been limited to just shooing the lookie-loos away, helping those affected and running off the looters.

                What we don’t have are National Guard, Military and black suited ninja’s running around in armored vehicles. And frankly…..we Texans don’t want or need them.

                Were it not for the events in Boston, the story in West would be much bigger. But in a way, it’s a good thing that it’s not.

                The folks in West don’t need Big Sis or the Kenyan coming down for a photo-op telling them, “Hi…we’re from the Federal Government and we’re here to help you.”

                Those of us here in Texas will take care of our fellow Texans, you can be sure of that. Because that’s what we do.

                  Texans can take care of their own but I hope those hurt have health insurance of some sort. Being in Texas, it is a good chance they are on their own with their injuries. Lets hope Texans rise to the occasion and help pay the medical bills of those less able to do so.

              • Spike says:

                Linton, DPS and others, the media attention in Boston vs. mere token coverage of Texas is just another example of the widening cultural gap between “big city” and “non-big city”. Many say this is the elites vs non-elites, but I think the problem is wider and more pronounced than most realize.

                Where do most of the powerbrokers/lobbyists/consultants/attorneys in Washington come from? Big cities. They were recruited from big city universities, and were educated by professors from big cities. Many of these people (again, with only a “big city” view of things) migrate to think tanks and lobby firms that help shape government policy. They have no clue about the culture of a small town or city of 100k people, and tend to look down on anyone who does not share a similar background. Much of the policy they dream up is perfect for market #10 (Boston) but is horrible for market #265 (Rocky Mount, NC). We’re seeing this with the policies in Obamacare , Dodd-Frank to name two examples which were pushed through by the democrat elites in 2008-2010. Most recent, Toomy-Manchin gun registration would have been nearly impossible for people in isolated towns and homesteads in Alaska and Montana.

                Let’s move to the media for a minute. Most all of the big national media reporters AND management have dwelt and existed in big cities only, or are decades removed from their small city backgrounds and act/behave as if big city natives. For instance, Dick Parsons, prior head of Time Warner and now CEO of Citibank, was interviewed a few years ago and admitted that he’s NEVER set foot in a Walmart. Good for him, but when running the largest media company in the world at the time and now one of the most powerful banks on the planet, don’t you think he’d more or less understand or relate to the large majority of his customers (the common man), who shop at Walmart? The boards of both companies hired this man, so is it possible that none of them have shopped at Walmart and are elitist too? Doubtful any of them have ever stepped in cow shit either, much less mowed a lawn, cleaned their gutters, or hammered a 2×4. The Walmart story is just one example of the media and corporate America disconnect from common folks and non-big city types. And I am seeing it more and more in product distribution, telecommunications, marketing and advertising, and banking.

                The bottom line is this: the media elites don’t give a crap about Texas. The dear city of Boston with 3 killed and 150 wounded are much more important than lil’ ol’ West, Texas with probably over 150 dead. West, Texas is “fly over country.” It doesn’t matter. Big cities come first. Were there major celebrity concerts for the 30,000 combined EF5 tornado victims in Tuscaloosa or Joplin in 2011? No. But hey, the elite celebrities were out for a Hurricane Sandy victim shin-dig, weren’t they?

                The clash of cultures between the industrial north vs the agrarian south was the crux of the Civil War (it wasn’t slavery, btw). I’m seeing the chasm between the cultures of the big cities and non-big cities widening all the time. We don’t have a mason-dixon line now, but a division of red and blue cities and counties. How is that going to play out?

                  You are misspelling it as “Amerika” as an insult to the country, using the North European spelling to imply that the U.S. is run by the “evil right-wing extremist Nazis” (actually “Nazists”, as “Nazi” was a slur invented by the Communist Party in Germany similar to “commie” and then picked up by British media, but I don’t expect you to understand this). Meanwhile the country has immense welfare programs subsidizing permanent welfare parasites who in the Third Reich were sterilized. The U.S. has programs like Affirmative Discrimination favoring non-Whites over Whites, and mass immigration to make sure White Americans become a minority and can’t organize to fight back. Homosexuals and feminists are favored, the break-up of marriage is encouraged, while in the Third Reich people received a medal for having six children or more. U.S. schools are full of the Marxist explanation of the world as a oppressor-vs-oppressed struggle, while in the Third Reich history was explained through the view of how the fight for survival shapes society, and how that should be accepted.

                  No, the U.S. is not “Nazist”, it is Marxist to the core. So you can stop using the “Amerikan” slur. Learn some other part of history, one that isn’t focused on the 1930s like the public schools teach you.

              Military there was national guard. That is one of their purposes. Now after they caught the kid and said that the DIA was involved in the interrogation of him, innocent or guilty, he will be guilty either way.

              A little bit about DIA Interrogators.

              DIA along with CIA are the ones who trained my group in interrogation.
              He is done.

              DIA interrogators are known as hostile interrogation specialists. That is where they give you no human rights at all, yes we are talking acid drips, light electric torture, needles, pins, razors to name a few. Or if they want to keep him pretty for a while they will use a large volume book normally a phone book, and a baton. Hurts like a bitch but leave no bruises also for no marks needles to specific nerve endings. Acupuncture works more then 1 way.

              Personally a video of the old Korean glass rod torture will make most males talk and tell you the truth without ever touching them.( a little mental breaking is needed first )

              DIA are the ones who trained the iraqi blood squads you may of heard of them as death squads er I mean interrogation units.

              I have seen people treated with no human rights before have interrogated this way myself but the blood squads are as I say a lot, they are 1 step further.

              Look up the name James Steele, he was involved in our training and directed t he whole operation of the blood squads and supervised our intel gatheres. He has been active since the early 80′s as far as I know. and honestly not someone to fuck with because he will go one step further every time, he has no soul.

And now, according to Drudge Report: Uncle says mentor’s redicalized older Boston bombing suspect– believes he was pawn in deadly scheme. And Obama has vowed he will not let “terrorists” win. Sounding more and more like 9-11 by the day!

            With these Boston bombers, what’s missing? Think about it. No firearms, none not a one. No AKs, ARs, pistols, high cap mags, no thousands of rounds of ammo, nothing just a blown up Presto pressure cooker. Not even so much as a past weapons purchase. If there was any they would have been out displayed on a table for the Press to video. They apparently shot the MIT cop with his own gun. You can bet if there had been a gun involved Bloomberg, Feinstein and Obama would be out screaming to the rafters about gun control. I guess this might kind of blow a hole in that argument, so to speak.
            I wonder how many people in Boston in the past week wished they had a gun in the house?

            Sorry folks, I am torn on this one. I never wore Police Fatigues and me and most of the old guard understood that in doing so, you are in essence creating a police state. I would tell young cops if you wanna wear fatigues, join the military (Army vet here). However, being ex law enforcement I understand the need for some firepower here. Many of my friends were at the North Hollywood shoot out, and their bullets were bouncing of the body armor of those guys. What wasn’t said is that they had set up a mac-90 on a wall at another BofA and ambushed and murdered an armored car driver.

            I was saying the same things when Dorner was on the loose. This was two (now one) guys, and they have paralyzed Boston. Do you think for one second that if the Govt came after everyone that the Govt forces would be overwhelmed in no time. Add to that, I think at least 1/2 of the police and Military would jump ships and back the Constitution.

            One thing I have found 100% inexcusable is that the news said that the search teams are not doing grid searches. That is how you find people hiding inside a perimeter. That is police work 101. Doing random searches is not how things are done when conducting searches.

            As some have said, this could be a dry run, but I doubt it. Now, if they start doing the new Orleans thing and start trying to seize everyone’s guns or other property, then I would say yes to the dry run.

            Who knows?? Remember, Chechen fighters took over that school in Breslyn, Russia and murdered hundreds of kids. Then Hollywood made movies about Russian atrocities in that war. I have no idea.

            Keep your powder dry,

              I recall many years ago, there was an escaped convict on the loose in the vicinity where I lived. I was just a kid at home with four siblings under the age of 10, we were home alone waiting for our Mother to return from work. My Mother called and said that we had to make sure all the doors were locked because someone told her the police were in our area looking for this armed and dangerous guy.

              My Mother said she was leaving work immediately and would be home in 15 minutes. As I went to lock the back door, it opened in my face and there was this guy holding a gun to my head, I froze and suddenly the guy flew backwards, two police officers had snuck up on him and then grabbed him from behind just in time to keep him from entering our home and doing God knows what. To this day, I am so grateful for those cops and know that they were our guardian angels.

              I still feel the same way today regardless of what others have to say. They put their lives on the line every moment of every day, without them we would all be screwed.

                  22winmag Dude,

                  Get real, did I say anything about loggers, fishermen or firefighters? I was simply recalling an incident in my past that in a way transformed my life. After that day, as young as I was, I became very spiritual and thankful. If you can find fault with that then you are beyond reaching.

                  You have insinuated that I stated or believed something that I did not even touch upon, that is quite presumptuous of you. For the record, any job that requires dealing with the public such as firefighters, police, including other dangerous jobs like loggers and of course fishermen, is extremely dangerous. So, I guess you really do not know what you are talking about when you attack me.

              Good post, JJsan. I remember the Chechens’ attacking the school in Beslan in 2004. They also are responsible for the Moscow theater attack in 2002. I remember a dialog with some security guys after the theater attack about what kind of gas the Russians used to knock everybody out. Some said it was “BZ” (quinuclidinyl benzilate). Anyway, the Chechens who end up getting radicalized are probably mostly Salafi Moslems, and that’s what accounts for their willingness to use violence and terror to achieve their goals.
              My wife first said it, and I agree: this whole Boston thing should teach us that being well-armed and having a bit of skill with a rifle is even more needful now.

              Police are mercenaries, scum, and the instruments of tyranny. The people are most free when they defend themselves, and not depend on legions of egotistical, self-important, state-sanctioned goons. The whole police apparatus should be dismantled. Freedom and danger is preferable to safety and servitude.

            100 million American gun owners hold the future of this nation in their hands. Organize, communicate, volunteer, donate, and vote for real Patriots for office.

              It’s not that there would be so many in number, it’s that IMHO in a real SHTF scenario, most of this “show of force” would be reduced to a “show of farce”,i.e., wholly inadequate to maintain civil order. These troops/police would be nowhere to be seen, except back home protecting their own homes and families.

              So for now, when only one guy on the loose, this is like playing Cowboys and Indians.

This giant cluster-f*ck reminds me of the “Keystone Cops”. A gigantic police force out there and they missed the kid hidding in a boat sitting in some guy’s backyard. The owner found the kid after the cops had already “searched” the area. These “super-troopers” are more like ‘super-poopers’ because they just shit all over themselves by missing the kid and having a civilian call it in. These clowns couldn’t find their asses with flashlights and both hands.

Large areas of the country are now American in name only. Once the transfer payments run out they will either leave or riot. Texas is the next big plum that the Stoopid party has given to the left wing. With both Ca. and Texas both voting Dem. the Stoopid Party will never again win a national election.

        It is about 12:31 plus as I write this. TRhe market will close in less than an half hour. There is a problem and everyone needs to know about. Many things are wrong right now and if you have any chance to take action it must be done ASAP. I will just tell you that the DOW is just turned positive but the S & P is up over 12 points. No time to explain but this is not right. Not right at all.
        Generally speaking if the DOW is at 100 points then the S & P should be up by close to 7 points. The ratio right now is out of whack by 200% of anything I have ever seen before.

        Just a warning to all, this is not good.

        I know I’m probably going to get shelled for this but forget about ndaa for a second and then think of what kind of response should be taken to capture an islamic jihadist running through suburban neighborhoods who has murdered innocent Americans. Its a slippery slope. Where is the line drawn? Imagine a whole squad of jihadists?

        I hate the militirization of our police and the Federal and military involvement in this because its precedent will be used in the future in cases much less severe and people will just roll over and allow it.

        But what response should be taken? There is a jihadist soldier of war attacking our civilization.

        On a different note, how would the feds lock down our entire nation with a 100 million armed Patriots when they are exhausting every resource in the city of Watertown which is 8 sq miles and just one man??

        They won’t be able to…

          Obummer’s idea of a civilian army will come true with thousands of “welfare” types joing the ranks for the “just cause” and becomming TSA agents for the good of America. Most sheeple will accept this due to the emotional fear of multiple “false flag” events such as the Boston massacure, Sandy Hook and others that will take place.

          This is just the beginning with the military, NG and locals doing the trench work and the Obummer civ force playing neighborhood snitch. Got that number on your hand or forehead yet cuz if you don’t the snitches will tattle on you!

          Judging from the success that the cops have had so far trying to catch the second brother, A NINETEEN YEAR OLD KID, that has been in this country since 2000-2001, which means he was SEVEN YEARS OLD when he got here, he must be the Chechen equivalent of Seal Team Six because he’s making the BPD, the FBI, the Ma. State Cops, the Ma. Nat. Guard and all of the other outlying towns police support, some from as far away as Manchester, NH look like the KEYSTONE COPS they are.

          This kid’s been “on the run” since ~1AM, SIXTEEN HOURS, and they don’t CLUE NUMBER ONE as to his whereabouts and they’ve got 20 SQUARE MILES completely shut down, or so they think. If the TSHTF, I don’t think people that can defend themselves have a thing to worry about because the cops couldn’t find their ass with both hands and a flashlight.

          The rest of the sheeple? They don’t have a snow balls chance in hell.

          My bet is that he’s either in the sewers making his escape or he’s dead.

          Anyone want to bet they haven’t even thought about checking the sewers?

            I wondered the exact same thing, when I saw a short video this morning of the jackboots ordering people to get out of their houses so they could go in and search the premises. No search warrants, no legal basis whatsoever – and the people I saw in the video were obediently scurrying out of their houses like they were trained chimpanzees.

            One black guy in the video, an older fellow – was coming out and heading for the street and he actually had his hands up, palms forward, as if he was surrendering and afraid he was going to get shot by the jackbooted thugs.

        • Afterthefallpa says:

          Apparently from what I understand from listening to CNN radio last night the police were searching every house, no asking permission, no debates. They had a few people in the neighborhood that they interviewed and they basically said, the police had them and their families stand off to the side while they checked their houses from basement to attic. One guy said that they were very professional and very thorough in their 2 searches of his house (once in the morning and once again at night).
          Basically they knocked on the door, told the family to stand aside at a specific place, then searched the house….and not one person seemed to have a single problem with that.

          And that’s how freedom dies folks. The sheeple think that the cops are just doing their jobs so they do exactly what they’re told without even batting an eyelash.

          As much as we’d love to think that the people would stand up against illegal searches of homes, if the searches are done under specific circumstances (i.e.- searching for a suspect) and everything seems to be done for the protection of the people the those people just step aside and mindlessly allow it to happen.

          This was a test and the sheeple passed it with flying colors.

          And now the debate is on where “lawmakers” are pushing for more surveillance cameras and drones everywhere.
          I believe that just as Sandy Hook was perpetrated to take away guns “to keep the children safe”, this may have been perpetrated as step 2 in the global takeover- cameras and drones everywhere watching everything “to keep everyone safe”.

            @Grippentrog….

            1. The militarization of our police has been a trend that has been on the upswing for years, but especially since 9/11. Sometimes, it’s warranted. But we are seeing a huge increase in military style operations in a civilian environment. This is not opinion or conspiracy…it is fact. “Dynamic Entry” for instance, has become a tool of law enforcement that is vastly overused. And the results have been on several occasions…tragic.

            2. Look at the vehicles. Obviously, you don’t have a clue about the way those vehicles are equipped. They are armored. If you will dig a little deeper, instead of getting all your news from the MSM, you will understand.

            3. You can train and train but there is nothing like a real event to reveal whether or not your tactics and communications are effective.

            Back up what I say? Open your eyes man. Or pull your head out of your backside.

            It’s not a conspiracy theory when they are doing it.

            I’d suggest you do a little research and learn how tyrannies are implemented.

        Oh yeah…..they’re just looking for the bad guy. Right.

        Don’t think they aren’t taking notes of who has what.

        Again I say….THIS IS A PROBE. This is what you do when you are trying to ascertain your enemy’s strength and how they are equipped. (weapons, food, reading material…or anything else they find interesting).

        They don’t have to “toss” the house. They can just observe what is readily apparent.

        Don’t think for a minute that they won’t be looking for “persons of interest” that are totally unrelated to the immediate situation.

The gun totin’ folks in Boston should be askin’ for search warrants. This BULLSHIT has got to stop.

        Funny but I told a friend this very thing right after it happened. The suspects that put the bombs in their locations were probably paid to do so and will not see a trial if for no other reason than to make sure of their silence. There are rumors that one suspect has already been killed and the other one is at large. I am sorry that the people that live in Boston are under Marshall Law though and I am praying for them. I also told the same friend that things would come to this. What is even sadder is that I dont follow politics at all.

    8. maybe a bit off toppic, but this needs to get pushed forward..
      two simple rules of how we can clean out the house, senate, and congress. 1 term limits, 2 if they don’t vote for what the people want, and they are brought up on ethics charges, they never get convicted, and if they do, it’s misdemeanour charges, but since they are held to higher standard, they should face treason (citizen revocation) charges for more than 1 misdemeanor charge? If we strip them of citizenship, they can’t own or possess those bank accounts, and they can’t return to lobby for their companies who’ve paid them off! problem solved, Treason they have committed for far too many years, at the hands of corporate manipulation! Insider trading, etc, and such! We can’t pick them out, one at a time, they are like a virus, we leave one, they create another colony as fast as viruses, fungi, or molds, and bacteria like a microbiology lab! They are infectious. Threaten their citizenship, and they might think twice about who they really serve? I would! Remember Eddie Slovak was executed for treason, and his crime was refusing to fight! These senators are doing the same thing! They refuse to fight for the people, and they aren’t ever going to pass term limits!

    11. The poor scared people cower behind drawn curtains while the police state grinds the boot. These suspects have already been found guilty without due process…in the MSM and even in this article. Their fate is sealed and it appears America’s fate is sealed too. Save me! Save me! The police are every bit as militarized as the military itself. The uniforms and camo and assault rifles are meant to put the fear of the state into the common man. It would be sickening if it weren’t so sad. All the crowing about “at least we are free” is bullshit. You haven’t been living in a free country for many, many years. Has anyone actually seen the video of either suspect planting a backpack? Or just pics of before and after. Let me know when it is released. I don’t think you will ever see one. It’s so easy to bullshit everyone with little to no evidence. Is there any video of the 7-11 robbery? This stinks to high heaven.

        The global elite must be in a panic right now. Since the dawn of man, terror has always worked well to manipulate the masses. In the last few decades alone, the fear of mass shootings has done more to restrict the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms than any dictatorship in history. The mass majority of Americans could be easily pursuaded to give up their own freedom without question, simply at the coin of a phrase, and the accompanying collateral deaths of a few innocent people.

        Apparently, that period of time is ending.

        The problem with the elite blending their “technological age” with “gun-crime oriented terror” is multi-faceted. First, the ability for more people to communicate with each other is unprecedented and we all know knowledge is power. Secondly, and perhaps most important—THEY PICKED THE WRONG CROWD TO TERRORIZE with GUNS.

        Adding insult to injury, practically every single American has a cell phone with a camera function…millions of them in any given place. Because if this fact, the elite are definitely experiencing a problem controlling the information, especially photo evidence from the crime scene. Add to that the ease with which one can upload to youtube, facebook and the like, and it’s a media nightmare out there for anyone trying to get away with something dark…including the government.

        Veterans and gun-owners are patently the wrong people to attempt to terrorize with guns, because WE KNOW OUR WEAPONS. We know the capabilities and limitations of our guns and ammo and because of our experiences with guns, we know a false flag when we see one. It only takes a matter of a few minutes for most of us to evaluate the story presented by the government and pick out the lies and inconsistencies in it. In short, we are not afraid of our own tools.

        It wasn’t very difficult to debunk the 2 billion hollow point rounds story, because gun owners know from experience that hollow point rounds are much more expensive than full metal jacket rounds, and that it isn’t feasible to use them for practice on a regular basis. Gun owners know the difference between a “high-powered sniper rifle” and a scary looking black .22 cal with a flash supressor and custom stock. To sum it up, More people ARE NOT BUYING THE HYPE ANYMORE.

        So now it looks like the “false flag” scenario has been changed…BOMBS ARE NOW THE CURRENT “TERROR DU JOUR”. Bombs are not as familiar to a lot of us as our trusty Bushmaster, but just as deadly in the wrong hands. The elite terrorists are counting on our ignorance of munitions to continue their terrorism with public bombings.

        THIS TOO, WILL FAIL.

        It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that fragmentation bombs usually show visual evidence that fragments tore through the container as they were forced outward. That is the general function of any bomb. In the case of the alleged Boston Marathon pressure cooker bomb(s), we are shown a twisted lid from a container they claim was filled with steel ball-bearings, nails and other durable fragments—a twisted lid that does not show any dents and tears on the inside surface, that would be consistent with steel schrapnel being forced out through the container walls under intense pressure. What they showed us, looks (to me) more like what we might see in a pressure cooker that exploded in a meth lab, containing mainly liquid, small aluminum pieces and glass. Materials that would be too soft to do much damage to the inside of the container as the seams burst.

        There are people out there who know about explosions and are not afraid of pressure cookers either. It’s only a matter of time before they start to speak out about what’s wrong with this picture. “NOT ONE MORE INCH” includes all forms of attack, not just attacks on our right to bear arms.

        When the elite finally realize that we are educated, experienced AND awake and we’re not gonna take this anymore, THAT is when the real “terror” will begin—when they know we’re coming for them and there is nothing they can do about it.

      You know what they say, “Practice makes perfect.”

      This provides an opportunity to TEST the updated laws – which ignore the peoples rights as stated in the Constitution.

      “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.

      A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”

But the reaction to lock-down the entire city of Boston just to seek out a single wannabe jihadist is stupid. Now every future jihadist has just realized that they only need a single attack per major city to basically shutdown all economic activity in the US.

        Israel doesn’t shutdown Tel Aviv when something blows up. Sure they mourn but they get on with their lives. They don’t go crawl under the bed and wait for mommy to say that the monster has left.

    25. I posted in a hurry above regarding the stock market. Just wanted to get that out to anyone that could do some thing.

      But you add everything that is going on here in the USA and today being a Friday I am worried. Not saying a lot of what we have been talking about happening but:

      1. Crazy numbers on Stock Market.

      2. The city of Boston for all purposes is under martial law.

      3. The President meeting with the Saudi Arabian whatever day before yesterday and an agreement to ship a Saudi National that is in the hospital in Boston under guard back to Saudi Arabia.

      4. Hints from more than one source that the President is considering Executive orders because the Senate did not pass the gun laws he wanted.

      5. To many open questions regarding these two guys in Boston. Where is the guy they arrested early this morning who they made strip because he had a bomb? Where are the couple that were taken out of the house this morning after shots were fired and maybe an explosion or two? If there is only 2 or 3 guys in this cell who are the other guys on Infowars? Did anyone else notice the back packs these guys had on that supposedly had the pressure cooker bombs in them? I don’t know but they did not looked full enough or heavy enough to carry a bomb. Where did these two guys get all the materials including guns and ammo? The 19 year old didn’t work and was a student. What did te older brother do for a living that he caould afford all of this. Was this an FBI sting operation that went bad?

      All of those people in Boston staying in their homes for how many hours now? Shows you the control they can have and that as far as I know is without the National Guard.

      I don’t like it, none of it, and am going to be on high alert all weekend.

      Obama put his hand on the Bible and swore to UPHOLD the Constitution when he was sworn into office. You don’t swear to God to uphold the Constitution and then proceed to DESTROY the Constitution. It is totally NOT acceptable, its TOTALLY not honorable and its totally not honest!

      • Mama Bear says:

        Rep. Peter King (NY) already has all kinds of plans, as he has explained to National Review; great reason for even MORE surveillance, and to open another “front on the war on terror” (whatever the frack that is) against Chechnya:

        “Peter King sees the attacks in Massachusetts this week as a wake-up call to local law-enforcement authorities to increase their surveillance and awareness of potential terrorists.

        “Police have to be in the community, they have to build up as many sources as they can, and they have to realize that the threat is coming from the Muslim community and increase surveillance there,” the New York Republican congressman tells National Review.

        “We can’t be bound by political correctness,” adds King, who chairs the House subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. “I think we need more police and more surveillance in the communities where the threat is coming from, whether it’s the Irish community with the Westies [an Irish-American gang in New York City], or the Italian community with the mafia, or the Muslim community with the Islamic terrorists.”

        (snip)

        The attacks show that “the war from terrorism is far from over,” King asserts, pointing out that many had feared “the nightmare” that someone without a criminal record would be successful in attacking a city. “The new normal,” King says, could be terrorists attacking from within, without any increase in chatter monitored by intelligence prior to the attacks. “The new threat is definitely from within, and we can’t let our guard down.”

        “I’ve been talking about radicalization of the Muslim community,” he remarks, “and I think this is an example of it.”

        King says he’d like to see local businesses alert police when anyone makes a suspicious purchase, such as buying significant quantities of items that could be used to make explosives. In New York City, if “anything unusual, any potential component part of an explosive device is purchased under any suspicious circumstances,” the businesses alert the police.

        The two brothers believed to be involved in the atacks, Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, have potential ties to Chechnya. King says that means there may be a “new front” in the War on Terror.

        “There’s never been any history of any threats emanating in this country from the Chechen community,” King says. “So in a way this opens up a new front in the war.”

        King dismissed the idea that the Massachusetts attacks should be a significant factor in considering the immigration-reform legislation.

        Speaking about the attacks in Massachusetts, he talked soberly about how “deadly and brutal” the killers were. “This was solely to cause human carnage and suffering. There’s no other purpose to the attack. It’s not even as if they were blowing up a government landmark and civilians got killed collaterally or as an afterthought.”

    30. So this brings up a perfect scenario I have been dreading. I would love to hear some recommendations. If some such scenario happens in a town near you. You are caught at home, not some hillside retreat in a remote forest. Your wife and newborn child are with you, and a defacto swat team pounds on your door. You don’t even get the benefit of them needing a warrant since it’s a “house to house search for some bad guy for the public good”. They threaten to break the door down if you don’t open. What do you do?

      I know if it were me alone I would be able to deal with the consequences of refusing while armed and ready. I don’t care what their reason is, King and castle, and their law ends at my property line where mine begins. However, they have proven over time their willingness to burn a house to the ground with women and children present. Anyway I play that scenario out, myself and family die and are portrayed as crazy fanatics.

      I think we all are waiting for the same thing… to see some news from some town of some patriot who followed through on what we all say, believe, and hopefully have the fortitude to enforce, when their rights are trampled on. Someone for a movement to gain momentum from. We continue to wait. In my opinion, these animals in charge will only blink when their agenda meets naked, unrestrained, brutal force!

      Please let me know what you think. There are simply too many scenarios to plan for.

        Do they…..

        1. Just go on to the next house?

        2. Break down the door and search the house?

        If they just move on, then how do they know for sure that the bad guy didn’t break in himself and has just made it look as if no one is there? Perhaps he broke in and managed to overpower the occupants, tied and gagged them and stuck them in a closet.

        Which then begs the question…..If they are not entering EVERY SINGLE BUILDING, isn’t the whole operation of going door to door a futile exercise?

        Not beyond the realm of possibility I suppose…but sure doesn’t seem likely.

        If he IS wounded…then one would think that at some point he would need some form of medical attention.

        I’m sorry…but I refuse to believe that a nineteen year-old has enough experience and knowledge to know how to survive in such a situation without extensive training.

        They may end up finding this kid holed up in a sewer pipe or road culvert somewhere….and he may be dead when they find him.

              Update: It appears they received a tip from the guy who owned the boat AFTER the eased the lock-down. The boat owner evidently saw blood on the boat and notified the authorities. A helicopter used thermal imaging to confirm that he was in the boat.

              Since there was blood on the boat prior to him being captured, we can reasonably assume that he was wounded as a result of the fire-fight the night before.

              So……Grippentrog…It looks like my assessment of this was far more logical than yours. As I said, it was highly unlikely that the younger brother came away from the fire=fight the night before unscathed.

              And it’s also obvious that the “thorough” house to house search for this guy was in fact, unwarranted and futile. The same result could have been had by just sealing the perimeter and telling people to stay inside.

              All they succeeded in doing with the house to house searches was desensitizing people to living under martial law.

              I stand by my argument.

            @Grasshopper…

            Well I’m wondering how much training a 19 year-old college kid, who has lived here in the states for the last 10 years, (and from all reports was just another school kid) could get that kind of training.

            Reading about it on the Internet and playing video games is not the same as actually doing it.

            As we have learned from media reports…he was hiding out in a boat. And from what I understand, they used thermal imaging to determine that…..not door to door searches of residences.

            A real door to door search of every house, building, and culvert is a very intensive operation. And if you don’t THOROUGHLY search EVERY little nook and cranny, is really an exercise in futility. At best, you prevent the suspect from moving about. But unless you physically clear every house and possible hiding spot, you aren’t accomplishing a whole lot.

            I think sealing the perimeter and telling people to stay in their homes was a good idea. An excellent idea in fact. But I just think the door to door searches of people’s homes was just over the top. The only thing it really accomplished was a desensitizing people to having a militarized police force having access to their homes.

This was pay back for Vietnam. Things change and policies change. Do you want us to continue our wars with Germany, Japan, England, Vietnam, Grenada, Mexico etc just because we fought before? Of course not Walt. Things do change and policies change. Double cross? Wtf? Again, thank god you don’t run the country.

      The two take always are this:

      1) many people suprised by the number of police and amount of equiptment (armored truck and evil black rifles)

      2) many in the area blocked off and close to the search zone wish they had a firearm.

        That’s pretty funny Spanky…

        I had a similar experience during the L.A. Riots in the early 90′s.

        Had an acquaintance who was “anti-gun” prior to the riots. Unfortunately, he had to drive through some pretty dicey territory to get to work every day. When the riots happened, he was coming to me, asking me if I had a gun I could “loan him”.

        I had to explain to him how that in Kalifornistan, it’s illegal to “loan a gun to someone”, and that if he wanted a gun for self-protection, he would need to go through the 10 day waiting period. I also explained that if he wanted to carry the gun with him in his car, he’d have to get a concealed carry permit….which are impossible to get in CA unless you know the right people, are a celebrity or give enough money to the local judge’s election campaign.

        Funny how reality makes believers out of liberals.

        @ Norse Prepper. The energy signatures were coming from central Japan to Kuril Islands like stated in response to Daisy on comment # 1490501. Everyone was concentrated on southern volcanic islands of Japan, but there was nothing coming from here in comparison to more northern Japan and the Kuril Islands. The very worrisome massive waves of energy are coming right from Mexico to Chile, big time. There was another western Nazca earthquake towards Easter Island and when this happens Central and/or South America gets nailed. Remember that the North American plate is directly affected by the Caribbean, Cocos, Nazca, and South American plate movement. The North American plate dictates what the New Madrid, Cascadia, and San Andreas does. There was also too much movement on the Scotia plate recently to indicate that nothing is coming.

      Notice the guys in multicam standing on the street corner (under that “signal ahead” yellow sign)? They all have suppressors on their M4s — oh and they have 30 round magazines too. What the hell are the military doing patrolling civilian streets with M4s, hi-cap magazines, body armor, and suppressors? They look like they’re going on patrol in Afghanistan! What happened to the good ol’ days of the national guard mobilizing during a national disaster and that was it? Now, they’re walking our streets ready for combat?!

      Hey, common sense easily trumps any conspiracy theorist looney rant in here, but this shit with the military is uncalled for. It ain’t like Boston has an Al Queda cell of 20 hard core dudes in an upstairs apartment ready to take on the world. It is one fucking 19 year old kid.

            Grippen, Walt and I don’t see eye to eye on some things, but any reasonable person has to agree that there really isn’t a need for the military/natty guard to be acting in such a way — armored vehicles, all the tactical bells and whistles, basically dressed for a hot patrol in Afghanistan.

            The overly heavy handed response may be a wonderful training opportunity for the leo’s and guard troops, but it also can be seen as a message to the population, “Don’t F**K with us!”. Well, by golly don’t we all feel so much safer now?

            You have to admit, much of law enforcement’s culture and attitude toward John Public isn’t one of service. And DHS worse — notice the attitude you get in an airport? Those dimwits would get a serious beat down if they abused people like that in any other place than an airport. The culture is alarming.

            I’m not saying the government is about to kick in our doors and take our guns, but I feel they’ve seriously overreached in their mobilization this time, and it’s gonna be a whole lot easier to do it next time. Looking at the progression of leo responses over the last 15 years, it sure seems we’re headed in a wrong direction.

      Boston Marathon Bombing

      Dear Readers,

      A number of you have asked me my take on the Boston Marathon Bombing and subsequent events.

      I am flattered that so many look to me for leadership on so many issues. However,
      I have not followed closely the Boston event. My website hasn’t the resources to field an investigative team, and in my opinion the TV and print news is part of the misinformation or disinformation. While driving (April 19) I listened to a NPR program on the Boston bombing and was disheartened by the absence of hard questions and any thought.

      Alex Jones has made a definitive statement that I lack the information to verify or contest. (See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axQtAFtmtVA )

      The video shows numerous military type guys on the scene prior to the explosion in identical garb–black baseball hats with white insignia, black shirts or jackets, tan pants and combat boots with cell phones in their hands. All have identical backpacks.

      The backpack straps match those on the remains of an exploded backpack, which the media has attributed to the backpack of one of the two brothers who are alleged to have committed the bombing. But they also match those of the guys who seem to move at ease among the police. No cop demands to search any of the backpacks.

      The video also shows prior to the bombing bomb-sniffing dogs patrolling and the Boston Globe’s report that a mock bomb attack would be part of a drill at the marathon.

      These documented facts have disappeared, to the extent that I have paid attention, from the media’s reports.

      What strikes me about the event is the ease with which authorities were able to lockdown entire metropolitan areas, preventing US citizens from leaving their homes in order to go to their jobs, to doctor’s appointments, to the grocery store, or to walk their dogs. This is a precedent. It sets the stage for martial law, although it is not being called that, and for daylight curfews. Is this what Homeland Security meant two years ago when its leader said the agency had shifted its focus from terrorism to domestic extremists?

      All of this is happening because of 4 or 5 deaths including one of the alleged perpetrators of the bombing. The response of the authorities is disproportionate to the crime.

      Lockdowns of metropolitan areas because of a hunt for one guy that might be a patsy? This is a new development. It is ominous for our future as a free society.”

      he’s right
      it sets the stage for worse to come
      the line has been crossed
      next time it will be even easier

      the people of Boston behaved like scared frightened little sheep
      and the corporate media helped

      this whole thing makes us look WEAK
      I have to say
      that I am embarrassed to call myself an American

      The other day Gopher wrote, “… bought a few coins yesterday… silver eagles, maple leafs and wildlife, all priced at $29.40.

      I thought these were all NEW coins and new coins were not really valuable (beyond their face value). I’ve never bought silver before so please excuse my ignorance.

      I thought if coins were pre-1965 then they were more valuable because they contain more silver (40% silver). And if coins were newer (1965 to 2013) then they were good only at face value. Also, can you get these silver eagles, etc. at coin shops? for $29? and what are they worth? I didn’t see anything about silver eagles, maple leafs at coinflation.com… thanks!

          Grasshopper, the coins referenced are .999 fine silver, an ounce worth, I believe. They are not circulating coins, rather they are for collectors, such as the collectors to be found on this site. Pre 65 dimes and quarters are 90% silver, also referred to as junk silver, but still legal tender although obviously worth much more than the face value.

    79. If you did not answer your door in Boston when the GI Joes came calling, they kicked in doors and searched your home without warrant. If the dragnet was 100 sq miles, why not just make it 1000 miles? What if they never captured the suspect? Then does everyone lose all their rights because of one teenager? Two guys did what the whole of the Soviet Union could not?

After our soldiers finished their tours and came home, many of them had no help, and still have to live in the streets. :(

      What the real deal here people are wondering???
      Majority of the people believe it’s a false flag.
      This man is surrounded with squat team over several miles and the area is completely shut down, no one has any clue where the 19-year-old’s about??? (BTW, the Police have nabbed the 19-year-old suspected Boston Marathon bomber at 9:10 pm ET and left one police officer dead.)
      __________________________

      Here the quotes from the articles about the two terrorists:

      - “According to the website spotcrime dot com, Tamerlan was arrested for domestic violence in July 2009, after assaulting his girlfriend. His worldview is described as “Islam” and he says his personal goal is *career and money*.”

      - “They were Muslim, but had a secular lifestyle.”
      -
      - “ …. What connection do Chechens have to Islam?
      The majority of Chechens are Muslims, and the Council on Foreign Relations say that there are several ties between Chechen militants and Al Qaeda, noting that the U.S. has publicly said that Osama bin Laden had “fueled the flames in Chechnya.” e identified himself then as a Muslim and said he did not drink or smoke: *God said no alcohol.*…..”

      I have a series of questions now that the suspect was taken alive. How do you people reconcile all the conspiracy theory thought concerning your initial comments. A lot of people made comments they would both be killed so the government could blame them and cover up for the real responsible people. How do you reconcile stating the government was going to use this as an excuse to start a war? All the speculation about the initial photos that were not close to the suspects? The government staging and scripting this. ( one guy is alive making this theory impossible). I could go on and on. I love you people and plan to incorporate you in future writings.

              Contheo, whose name means Against God. Hmmm.

              I have reserved judgment on this situation, just watching and listening very closely. I find it to be very intriguing that Russia warned us about the older brother, but with all the data at our fingertips we couldn’t find any suspicious information on him.

              Also, I think it is plausible that they could have been recruited by DHS agents, as has happened in several instances in the past. It was a pretty nice chance to demonstrate the DHS awesomeness to the sheeple, what with catching them so quickly and definitively. I don’t think this is what happened, I just find it to be plausible based on past DHS MO, plus the fact that this government is ridden with power hungry sociopaths who believe in things like “the ends justifies the means.”

              Good luck on your writings. The people posting here represent a fascinating microcosm in the broader crumbling of trust in fed.gov that is sweeping the country. You may also want to read Glenn Greenwald for the single progressive who is awake to the jackbooted shenanigans.

                  ConTheo, another site you might want to read, and I should have mentioned it before, is Zero Hedge. A lot of financial articles, but also a very deep and abiding mistrust of the fed.gov after what has gone down since 2008.

          No, I am not mentioning this site or writing about this site. I intend to explore the anatomy of a Conspiracy Theory. I am hoping to hear how people came to their beliefs. Some people have had incidents in their lives that sound incredible but ended up true. I hope to ask people how they came to believe something others would think to be false. A good example would be a friend of mine who is very main stream yet very suspicious. After getting to know him, I learned he is a relative of the man falsely accused in the Tylenol poisonings. I like to have depth in my beliefs and learning about other people helps to not outright dismiss them and to make others see legitimate reasons concerning their beliefs. ( Even if their beliefs are not correct, sound odd etc.)

      @ Satori. One of the fastest and most direct routes to regional or nationwide martial law is from one of the three major faults going off like they have BEFORE. The western hempishere has yet to even feel what is coming. That 6.6 was another result of the African plate giving the Austalian plate some real bad times just as it should from all the boudaries around the African plate that was indicating this 3 weeks ago.

      I don’t like to harp on this, but there has been some major collisions going on down in South America from the Nazca plate and the South American plate moving as indicated by all the swarms down in the South Sandwich Islands which is the Scotia plate. This is one of the few places that the Antarctic plate actually forms a thrust zone. What is concerning is that there has yet to be a 7 or so down there. This could mean a mega quake coming.

      Most plates of the world don’t have such a direct collision as the Nazca and South American plate has. Most plates are slightly or a lot off that 0 degrees to 0 degrees. One plate might be say 15 degrees and the other coming at it is say 5 degrees above or below that even plane. The Nazca and South America plates are also fairly even on the 3 dimensional plane. Look at the Andes mountains as these mountains are quite symmetrical. This on top of the fact that the Nazca plate is fairly large makes for the potention for super mega quakes that gong the whole planet and make for other plates to buckle and twist like the North American plate.

      Now that the government has had a chance to test and dry run their own martial law scenario on the Boston area, they are more confident WHEN they will ruin our lives on a much wider scale. I would keep an eye out in the New Madrid area for the USGS, they will know before it snaps and will send the military down there. Just like that old Earthquake movie with Lorne Greene in it, I think it was made back in 1974, they sent the national guard BEFORE it happened to ready for it. Watch that Mid Atlantic Ridge, it will highly likely have a large earthquake on it before the New Madrid breaks, OR the Caribbean plate will give way and trigger it. Maybe both.

      When you watch the ease at which people behave themselves with the military when the chances of one lone terrorist getting them was highly remote, you can visualize what it will be like after a TRUE manure gets dropped on society.

        Be Informed, re: New Madrid Fault

        United States Dept. of Defense to Stage Night Drills in Tinley Park Illinois
        The U.S. Department of Defense will be staging training exercises two nights next week on the Tinley Park Mental Health Center grounds, village officials announced Tuesday.

        The exercises will be run the nights of April 23 and 24 and will involve helicopter operations and breaching buildings using live explosives.
        The drills will not be open to the public because of safety and security concerns for untrained spectators.

        These exercises will simulate real-world situations and experiences, along with some of the same sights and sounds that would accompany them, Carr said. That means live explosives will be used, and helicopters will be flying over the village.

        Most recent:

        The Illinois National Guard Chemical, Biological, Radiological/Nuclear and High Explosive Response Force Package (CERFP) team along with 15 local and state agencies conducted a full-scale exercise to better communicate and enhance their training for a potential manmade or natural disaster from April 11 – 13.

        nothing was to be expected suddenly the average solar variability has went from ‘flat-line’ to distincly disturbed, quite active. Said activity is yet confined to the C-class,

        and I havem’t had time as yet to look up the current STEREO status…I’ll do so and get back with you later…
