Trump's Social Media Entertainment Sources

Do you recall the following on many many Trump campaign lies?
Well, the latest of Trump's Twitter childishness came in the form of a GIF created by a Reddit user who clearly has major issues with the Jewish Faith and Jewish people as well as issues with CNN.

The CNN Tweet.

The Reddit page of a user who uses the moniker "the_ donald".  

Mediate also published a piece about the Reddit user.  But, of much more significance, take a look at a meme post published by the user.  Would you like to take a guess the meaning of the blue stars embossed on the CNN images. HINT: Star of David.

Boston Bombers, Warnings, Failures, and Maiming and Death (VIDEO)


Monday April 15th, 2013.
Could much of this or any of this been avoided?

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Post bombing Twitter babbling seemingly without any conscious or concern...until Thursday of this week.

Is there any issues with the fact these men as boys came to the United States via favorable privilege (asylum) born of lingering vestiges of the "Cold War"? Millions are not allow to apply for "legal" entry into the United States. What was it about these Chechen immigrants set them apart from immigration for Mexico and Central America, Haiti, China, etc?  Immigrants (illegal or legal) from Mexico committed crimes against the US and US citizens.  I cannot recall one case of an immigrant from south of the State of Texas involving and I.E.D.!

As was the case with the Fort Hood shooter, there may have been signs of pending danger. We have no interest in pointing fingers at the FBI. Huffington Post has published a piece about reports of FBI knowledge of and monitoring of 

Tamerlan Tsarnaev,  the older marathon bomber (blue cap),  for years. Reports of warnings from Russian authorities, did not yield an intervention that worked to warded-off the April 15th, 2013 bombing.*

Somewhere between Russian security and US security, opportunity failed and people died. People across the world, people in the United States, and have yet another example of failed government with ultimate harm to ordinary citizens of a country.

The following images are very graphic. We contemplated not publishing the images, but our contemplation came to decision after another view of all images above. As I linked the video links at the bottom of this screed, the video with all the shooting bother me.  It bothers me because the authorities were closing on a 19 year old.  As I am a Consequentialist, I quickly moved away from that sadness to the images at the top of this screed. I then thought of our young troops fighting in foreign lands as a result of other attacks from those who would do us harm. Many are ages 18, 9, and 20 ish.

WebPro News Life has published a Reddit image of 

Tamerlan Tsarnaev after the shootout in which he was killed and run over by his escaping younger brother.

The image is still on the site in the WTF subreddit.

Naturally, the authenticity is called into question, and we have no hard confirmation, but TMZ reports: “Law enforcement sources tell TMZ it’s 100% authentic.” 
TMZ doesn’t actually show the image, but describes it in a manner that matches the image in question:

Of course, we know the prospect of thwarting terrorism is often a matter of luck coupled with intel and countermeasures.  We are certainly joining growing criticism of the FBI (we do not know the extent of information from Russian security). 

Yet, we will make a couple of points. Some have seen the effectiveness of the FBI in stamping out homegrown revolutionary/civil rights groups (the original Black Panther Party for Self Defense) and COINTELPRO. The FBI also was extremely effective in assisting local authorities in 'bustin-up' public protest of the activist movement Occupy Wall Street.  The question that will go unanswered is why do our intel and security agencies lapse when it comes to terror that does not emanates for progressivism or liberalism. It is truly unfortunate we do not see evidence of like effectiveness in dealing with Nazi, white supremacist and militia groups. In fairness, we recall infiltration of militia groups over the past decades, but those infiltrations have not placed a damper on the record number of militia groups prevalent in the United States.  

Good information, competence  and willingness to stamp out danger, if in better form may have eliminated opportunity to post the images in this screed.  

*(FSB, Russian Internal Security, wanted the older brother investigated for ties to terrorist groups.  The FBI interviewed the older brother, but uncovered nothing reported worthy of further investigation.  The FBI has indicated the FSB did not give details about their concern for possible radicalism. MSNBC reports all FBI investigation stopped and the older brother journeyed to Russia for six months in early 2012.  Shortly after returning from Russia he opened a YouTube Account and posted video indicating Islamic radicalization.)
