cw: boston marathon bombings

Boston. Fucking horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”

—  Patton Oswalt
Saying that “we are not barbarians, we bury the dead,” the police chief of Worcester, Mass., on Wednesday appealed for someone in authority to clear the way for the body of Boston Marathon bombings suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev to be buried.

We’re now almost two months into the Boston Marathon bombing trial, and as I’ve written here many times, we’ve seen scores of horrific and gruesome videos of the carnage and heard absolutely terrible stories of the lasting impact of what happened that day. People have asked me a lot about what it’s been like to cover the trial, and my mind always goes back to the sad face and voice of Bill Richard, who calmly described in heart-wrenching detail of what it was like to see his 8-year-old son Martin, the youngest victim of the attack, dying on a sidewalk in front of him. That one last glimpse Bill took of his son senselessly blown apart by a bomb before he had to rush to the hospital with his 7-year-old daughter Jane, whose leg had been blown off and was danger of bleeding to death. He spoke of how wounded his family was that day—and continues to be. His wife Denise was blinded in one eye, and Bill still can’t hear very well—though he told the jury of still being able to hear “the beautiful voices of my family.” You hear horrific stories like that—and there have been many in this trial—and you wonder how people have found the strength to go on.

It’s a story where there is tragedy on every single side. There is the tragedy of what happened to everybody affected by what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did. There is the tragedy of his own life, how he stupidly and senselessly threw it all away. And today, we were reminded of the tragedy of people who loved him and still feel anguish about the kid they knew who somehow became a terrorist.

- NFL DRAFT HOPEFUL RE-INLISTS IN MARINES AFTER BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING - Brandon O’Brien was hoping to sign with an NFL team this season after serving four years in the Marine Corps.

After Monday’s Boston Marathon explosions, though, O’Brien decided to re-enlist, according to Andy Fenelon of NFL.com. O’Brien’s agent told Fenelon that Monday’s events “left a big hole in his heart.”

The 30-year-old previously walked on to the University of Kentucky football team in 2000, according to a feature from Yahoo! Sports. After quitting the sport to help out monetarily at home, O’Brien enlisted in the Marines in 2005.

After serving, the wide receiver enrolled at Montana State Northern University and set school records for touchdowns in a game, receiving yards in a game and receiving touchdowns in a season. O’Brien participated in the NFL’s regional combine in Houston, Tex., on Feb. 16 and at Montana State Northern University’s pro day on March 18.

New England Sports Network reports O'Brien was hoping to make a roster as a special teams player. In March, he told Yahoo that if his professional football dreams didn’t pan out, he had other plans.

“I’d be totally happy with my life serving my country,” he said.

Now that is a true example of what a hero is. (Photo: USA Today Sports)

Carlos Arredondo - Boston Hero or NWO FRAUD? 

(The Boston Hoaxathon Moronathon plot thickens!!!  Hold on to your hats folks here we go again!)

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE - TO TRUST THE MEDIA

(you didn’t really think that, did you?)

What you’re about to witness is sort of real..

The participants are actors, but the Rockefeller propaganda machine is sophisticated enough to know that modern perception management requires that a certain percentage of their contrived information be rooted in actual verifiable facts.

Damn you internet.

However, just like the mass shooting false flags have the underlying gun control agenda, the Boston mess has a different hidden purpose which is no less insidious.

The aftermath of their false flags always brings us more trauma-based mind control, but the Boston fake bombings also thrust a phony hero onto the world stage.  A supposed extraordinary peace activist and bereaved father, who ran into danger and saved lives while everyone else was running away…

Who he is, why he was selected and most importantly - why the powers that should not be need so badly for us to believe in him, is what we’ll explore here…  

Welcome to the Boston Marathon Moronathon…
