    From what I’ve read this guy donated money to and supported Obama’s campaign in 2008. Unforgivable as far as I’m concerned. But I don’t live in MA, so don’t really have a dog in this hunt. I will say though, as someone who comes from this community, it is very frowned on for someone to go around wearing a SEAL trident while running for political office. I don’t care if you’re the original frogman, pimping the bird is no bueno. I’m just saying, and I shouldn’t have to explain why. Every single person I know of who has worn his military service on his sleeve to get elected has turned out to be a douche. A few names like John McCain and Lindsey Graham come to mind. Or perhaps Bob Kerry (a Democrat SEAL who won the medal of honor) or John Kerry. Again, just saying. What a lot of people don’t understand is getting into these military programs really isn’t that big of a deal. In the world of “no child left behind” it may seem really hard, but it’s not. The reality isn’t like hollywood at all. It’s a school, and just like any other school all you have to do is complete it. Officers have an over 90% graduation rate at BUDS. Kids straight out of high school with not as much life experience have about a 50% graduation rate in the enlisted ranks. Don’t get me wrong, I love the military and am very proud of my service, but it’s not what many make it out to be. To a large extent the military truly is the DMV with shorter haircuts. It’s a bureaucracy wi

    I’m sorry but I call BS… I don’t believe a doctor said this saved his life. A doctor from where, Guatemala? It is well known that these suction cup kits do not help in any way. Not only do they not help, but they make the injury worse. I was taught this in my military training which included extensive medical training for combat medicine. I also have engaged in a lot of extreme outdoor events with people who worked in healthcare, doctors, nurses, etc., every person I’ve ever talked to has stated these kits are an old wives tale and don’t work. Poison from the snake is injected, there is no “sucking” it out. It’s in the blood. Only thing you can do is get anti-venom within a proper period of time.

    As the DHS officer stated, file was created as part of no-fly order pending investigation. In other words, they profiled this guy simply because of where he came from and because some paranoid local said he was “acting suspiciously.” I’m not sure how this is an example of incompetence on the part of DHS??

    What part of no evidence is confusing? No evidence he did or intends to do anything! Bottom line, end of story.

  • April 23, 2013 at 12:56am

    I’m embarrassed that you’re a fellow American, seriously. Not a shred of evidence against this kid but you hate him anyway because he’s brown and from Saudi Arabia and Muslim. Truly, you are a bigot.

  • April 23, 2013 at 12:54am

    Excuse me while I laugh out loud. So as predicted by anybody with common sense, there is nothing to see here at all. No deportation order, no terrorist mastermind, just a foreign student injured in the attack then being harassed by the authorities because he’s from Saudi Arabia. Nice. But never forget, Glenn doesn’t bluff, he knows those darn Arabs are to blame somehow, so stand by! You have been warned! He doesn’t bluff, you have until Monday to come clean or else! Yawn, I think I’m done listening to his radio program.

    @VRW, I’ll wait to see this chain laid out for me. At this point it sounds like “I heard from a guy that heard from a guy that heard from another guy who says he saw X, Y, Z”. And then a bunch of speculation about what that actually means.

    We just watched the media this past week jack up one story after another. I’ve heard seriously I think a dozen different accounts of how the black hat terrorist was killed. Seriously, who is the media getting their information from? Do they all have legitimate sources who were all just wrong?

    The point of my previous remark is you shouldn’t make assumptions about what’s going on. Perhaps a file was created on this guy, but so what? It was said this guy was on a watch list previously. Paperwork could be from that old file. Could be it was created more recently when they decided to first investigate him after the explosion. Perhaps they simply want to remove him for his own safety, and the classification on the paperwork doesn’t have anything to do with his own behavior but simply the associated event that set the whole thing in motion. Really, what if this whole conspiracy is simply the result of some bureaucrat who entered the wrong classification code into a form? Way more plausible than the government intentionally letting terrorists into the country and then intentionally sneaking them back home after they commit mass murder.

    Again, you two are engaging in speculation. Evidence means facts in hand. Established indisputable facts. The government says this guy is a terrorist? Really, show me the paperwork that says this. You realize this is the government we’re talking about right? The same government we make fun of for wild incompetence. The fact that some file may exist on this guy doesn’t mean that it means what Beck suggests that it means.

    I have a friend that was put on a terrorist watch list and a no fly list because of sites that she visited while doing research for a graduate paper on terrorism. And she didn’t even know about this until she tried to get on a plane. All she did was visit some web pages as part of researching a paper for school !!!!

    From what I can tell the ONLY facts Beck has are that he is a Saudi and was here on a student visa and was also injured in the attack. Everything else is pure conjecture.

    Tell me something, if this guy was somehow involved, why in the world was he there? He comes over to “recruit” terrorists and start some kind of terrorist cell, but then is stupid enough to place himself not only at the scene but close enough to be injured in the blast… give me a break.

  • April 22, 2013 at 10:57am

    Beck promises a bomb but drops a leaflet… give me a call when you have something conclusive, you know, like a factual link between this saudi and the bombers.

    I agree our relationship with Saudi is too cozy, but you have not established even one loose piece of evidence against this guy showing that he either did anything or was intending to do anything.

    @CHADRED, Hey idiot, I’m a SOF veteran and still serve as a reservist. I got back from Afghanistan a couple months ago. I speak Arabic and have spent most of the past decade in the Middle East either as a civilian or with the military. What have you done? I bet my voting record is far more “conservative” than yours. You’re a moron that reads crap on the internet and thinks he understands the world but doesn’t have the first clue.

    You idiots need to take a step back and think about what you’re saying. Obama is covering up terrorist activity and essentially pardoning the perpetrators. Seriously? And you really think he has the power to do this? Take a moment and consider how many people would have to be involved in something like that. Who is it that serves in our intelligence and law enforcement agencies? You’re talking about a 911-truther-scale conspiracy involving hundreds if not thousands of people.

    And for what purpose? To cover up a terrorist attack…. what on earth for?

    So Obama’s going to create a huge conspiracy, which hinges on the loyal support of thousands of people. If just one comes out and speaks he’s exposed. And he’s going to risk all that, his whole reputation, so that he can protect the name of some family in Saudi Arabia? So the DHS doesn’t look bad for failing to stop this “cell.”

    You guys are all idiots. The reality is that our government is not competent enough to even conceive a narrative this advanced much le

  • April 18, 2013 at 11:43am

    Why must everything be a conspiracy? It’s perfectly plausible and REASONABLE that this man is being deported for his own safety and for the purpose of preventing an incident. Some guy from Bangladesh was beaten near to death in the Bronx, I’m sure other incidents we don’t know about. And where might this racial paranoia be coming from, oh, I don’t know, maybe The Blaze, the new and improved version of Alex Jones.

    Why can’t South Korea defend itself is my question. Twice the population and 25 times the economy. A trillion dollar economy vs 40 billion and the worst poverty in the world. Completely asinine that this gnat is a pest to anyone. We need to pull out and let the South Koreans deal with it. And if they had any brains they would carpet bomb his ass out of existence.

    This ruling is by a lower court. Next step supreme court, fingers crossed! And even if SCOTUS rules correctly on this one, it only means those appointments to this one committee are invalid… whoop tee do.

    Obamacare was declared unconstitutional as well until Bush-appointed Justice Roberts got his hands on it. So all the unconstitutional things that matter we lose on, but perhaps we’ll get a victory on the definition of “recess”? Hooray, break out the champagne. Oh but wait, we can’t afford any.

  • January 24, 2013 at 4:18pm

    So in other words, stop trying to cut spending, instead let’s knuckle down and get to work so that Obama’s socialist dream can work. Sorry, I find this tact extremely short-sighted. We spent over $454 BILLION just in debt interest in FY2011. INTEREST! Respectfully Gov Jindall, you don’t seem to understand just how big of a problem this is. We have over 100 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities. In about a decade or so if we haven’t stopped spending, our interest payments alone will consume every tax dollar the government takes in. Anybody who says we need to focus on anything other than the budget is an idiot. Only two things matter, the money and the guns. We need the guns in case we can’t fix the money problem.

    So this Lanza guy, he must really be a Chinese spy. I bet he had plastic surgery to make him look like a mentally disturbed white kid.

    Good to see we aren’t going down without a fight, but this video doesn’t really show much. We need to keep having the verbal debates, but this is an issue the two sides will never see eye to eye on. The opposition doesn’t understand or care about the Constitution, and frankly our side is lacking in this area as well. It’s hypocritical to abuse the Constitution with things like the Patriot Act but then expect the liberals to respect it with gun rights. Both sides have been abusing the Constitution for a long time.

    Without a doubt, yes, there are some racial elements inside the GOP. But there are just as many if not more racial elements inside the Democratic Party. I mean come on, wasn’t it the Democrats that opposed the Civil Rights movement? How many times have Planned Parenthood clinics been exposed for specifically targeting black babies for abortion? And then what about black-against-white racism? Blacks vote 95% Democrat. Statistically this makes no sense. Whites don’t all vote the same everywhere, so why do Blacks? It would seem they are voting along racial lines. Nothing else makes sense to explain this trend. Given everything that’s going on I think it’s a bit irresponsible for someone like Powell to stoke the racial flames. It feels like race relations have gone backwards the past 4 years.

    I’m done with the GOP.They’ll never get a dime from me again, and other than a short list of people I’ll never vote for anybody with a R next to their name.
