Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on April 21, 2013 by Allahpundit

In an alternate universe, today’s chat shows are devoted to reporting on the disaster in West, Texas and dissecting Wednesday’s gun-control votes in the Senate. This is not that universe. Expect nearly wall-to-wall coverage of the marathon bombings and the Tsarnaev degenerates with just a bit of those other two topics tossed in. This morning will be useful, at least, in showcasing the media’s first go at explaining How We Should Think about the bombings.

Politico has the line-up, which is filled with current and former intel officials. Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham will also be on to pitch amnesty because, after all, today’s a day ending with “y.”

How much “discussion” will there be about how wrong the MSM talking head speculation about “right-wing Tea Party” type terrorists was.

My guess is there will be little more than a mention, if that. If it is mentioned at all anywhere other than on FOX it will be because the token “conservative” brings it up, followed by a short dismissive rebuttal and a quick change of subject.

The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.

Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.

More than 1,000 FBI agents were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhar’s dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.

A source close to the investigation said: “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.

“They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.”

The usual cast of characters will explore why conservatives allowed two misguided youth to set off pressure cooker bombs and why it was all our fault. I doubt anything will be said about the other dozen or so co-conspirators– mosque buddies with the joker brothers who were also in on the Boston bombings.
Later the dbm will be once again chastise conservatives for not passing more hideous gun laws. the drivebys will undoubtedly forget to recall that the regime has already bought up much of the available ammo and a POed zero will simply sign off on pre-created EO’s to make it all the harder to own guns.
I doubt anyone will hear that the gun legislation was probably just a camo for amnesty that will undoubtedly pass the Senate but might not make it in the House we shall see.
Regardless of what happens it will be our fault.

My guess as well.

The secondary “discussion” will involve absolving Dear Leader of any responsibility for the government’s failure to have any clue at all that an Islamist terrorist attack on US soil was imminent. Perhaps it was because they were focused on trying to uncover and root out right-wing Tea Party type terrorist plots.

I had to laugh the first time I heard that. What kid brother has ever listened to an older brother? Mine never did.

Besides, these guys weren’t lone wolves. Where’s their money coming from? The Headlines mention a sleeper cell. Sure, this wasn’t 9/11, but this was sophisticated enough that others are involved. Flood the zone by taking the manpower devoted to watching tea party groups and focus on the real threats.

We have to start profiling better. And we need profiling in legal immigration. Beyond that, if ever there was an excuse for deporting illegal immigrants for any minor infraction, this is it. If we have to swallow pathways to citizenship, these people need to be angels on earth. In particular, stolen ID or fake ID, deport immediately. They’ve already proved that they know how to dodge our system.

I’m sure the DBM will be all over the fact that recent rules related to interrogating foreigners preventing the FBI from asking pertinent questions about terrorism may well have caused this entire event. Seems the older joker brother, the now dead wife beating 26 year old, spent 6 months in Chechnia learning how to be a better terrorist. But, the FBI was prevented from asking the right questions as he re-entered the US.He should have been in jail.

“United in adversity: West, Texas, prays for Boston, which sends pizzas to West…

As refugees in West, Texas waited to return to homes devastated by a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant, their talk, concern, and prayers turned to the terrorist attack in Boston. ‘I’ve never been to Boston,’ one Texan commented, ‘but now I really want to go. It seems like a cool city.’…

Even as West continued to tally its casualties and homeless residents wandered around in their trucks, Ms. Cvikel noted, “I can’t imagine what people in Boston are going through. We’ve been praying for them too.”

The phenomenon was in many ways natural: Victims of circumstance and tragedy easily empathize with others going through hard times. But it also pointed to a unique sense of national solidarity wrought by chaos and resolved by a sense of hope. “We are only beginning to make sense of a series of events that moved so fast, so furiously as to almost defy attempts to figure them out,” explains Jesse Washington of the Washington Post…

Some here in West wondered how CNN’s Anderson Cooper could have materialized in Boston only hours after leaving West, but there was little bitterness about the drift in national attention. If anything, residents of central Texas cheered the capture of the surviving bomb suspect because it buoyed their spirits as much as those of the applauding crowds on the streets of Watertown, clapping as police drove through.

Texas State Trooper Bryan Washko toured what he called “war zone” devastation early Friday before setting up a road block into a neighborhood knocked over by the Wednesday night explosion.

But even as the Killeen-based trooper ached for the plight of fellow Texans, he said he’d spent most of his shift listening to NPR’s coverage of the Thursday night manhunt and shootout that led to one of the suspects – two Chechen brothers – being killed and the other one, the younger brother, somehow escaping the grasp of police…

To some, the rise of smart phones and constant contact exacerbated the rough week, pouring endless details, analysis, and opinion into the country’s bloodstream. “There’s no place to run, no place to hide,” Dr. Stuart Fischoff, a media psychologist, observed to the Associated Press. “We’re dealing with future shock on a daily basis.”

But if newfangled devices and shoot-from-the-hip media excited the masses, it also appeared to solder together at least parts of America’s social and class fissures, including the blue-red state divide between rural Texas and urbane Cambridge and Boston. Along with tragedy came stories of hope and heroes, and regular Americans doing their best to help each other, no matter their differences.

The two disaster areas shared more direct contact, as well, this week.

As doctors in Waco’s Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center attended to dozens of people injured in the West explosion on Wednesday might, a large order of pizzas suddenly appeared. “… from one doc to another, ‘Thanks for all your hard work,’” a note said.

The pizzas had been ordered by doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital, who two days earlier had treated many of the Boston Marathon victims…”

Islamic terrorist blow up Boston and the MSM is asking why? Is this really how far the pravda media has fallen? Do they really not see the danger on our doorstep? do the liberals simply want the Islamists to win this war?

8 years was too long to wait so they just had to blow up something before Obama left. Next talking point. Why don’t Islamic terrorists have impulse control?

The ‘theories’ have begun, the first one so far being pushed is that the older one — a boxer — bullied his weaker, collegian sibling.

The media have provided the lefty terrorist with a defense in a full-court ‘charm offensive’. Unfortunately, there will be a slew of witnesses testifying that Sweet Pea partied and tweeted in the most mellowly sociopathic way imaginable after murdering and maiming children. His lack of conscience is on the record, will be used as evidence, and will do away with the ‘led astray’ defense to any sensible juror. He owns it through and through. Not to mention the pictures of the bloody devastation that will submitted. The prosecutor needs to pull no stops in seeking nothing less than capital punishment.

And if they do have the footage/evidence of the monster placing the bomb right behind the children, he can kiss his scrawny little ass goodbye. We should all be there to see him off.

But why? He is a lame duck President, he can’t run for re-election. Why defend him now? This is a clear and present danger to the country. The media isn’t covering for the Pres anymore they are covering for the Islamic enemy.

Exactly — It’s Orwellian Socialist Sunday morning talking head show time, with highlights of the week’s two-minutes hate topics.

Which is why theses shows should be DVR’d and only watched for entertainment and oppo research. Except that they are so predictable the oppo research value is limited.

‘Elitist’ arrogance is the greatest danger facing this country. They don’t want the terrorists to win as much as they can’t face the realization that they’re dead f8cking wrong on everything they’ve been ingrained to believe in their ‘progressive’ circles.

RepubChica on April 21, 2013 at 9:12 AM

Produce enough smoke and everyone gets lost. Then bring out the mirrors!

One perp was mentally ill and had a mom he just killed work at a school and the other two all but ran down the street flying a black Jihadist flag while they dropped bombs in spots next to kids and other people they had no connection with.

Senator Claire McCaskill asked Janet Napolitano whether Sandy Hook and the Marathon were both “acts of terror” since we don’t know the motivation.

It wasn’t observed that:

Over the past few days, the entire city of Boston has been held hostage by two Muslim radicals, one of whom was convicted of a crime and whom could (should?) have been deported years ago.

I too am going to be listening in Monday when Beck releases what he has. My guess is its all about the Saudis,possibly the ones that moochhelle visited earlier in the week who are due to be released and sent back soon.
Very possible they wee behind the entire thing and beck has the skinny on them.
Supposedly his sources are beyond reproach and the info hard.
Could be good.

Dianne Feinstein just remarked to Chris Wallace how “wonderful it is the way the nation comes together” at times of crisis like the Boston Marathon bombing.

I’m pretty sure the entire county heard me scream “F**k you!” at my TV.

Because it’s not him they defend but what he represents. He is merely the personification of all they have been working towards for the last 60 years.

Good God, this thing has tentacles everywhere. From a Boston Globe Article:

Gym owner Allan said that Tamerlan had once introduced him to an American, Brendan Mess, whom Tamerlan described as his best friend.

Two years ago, Mess and two other men were brutally killed in a Waltham apartment where they were found by police with their throats slit and their bodies covered with marijuana. The murders remain unsolved.

Tsarnaev hadn’t been to Allan’s Wai Kru Mixed Martial Arts center in years, instead going to another nearby boxing gym.

Until this month.

Read the whole thing. (The Daily Mail is on this too; I’ll try to find a link.)

Isn’t that one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto goals–to ultimately control media messaging in the US? It’s pretty easy when you have friends in very lofty places steeped in far-left ideology and anti-Americanism. Just like the underground communists/socialists. Similar goal. Mostly accomplished.
