Boston Marathon Bombing a Bush-Cheney Conspiracy?

george-bushThe father of the Tsarnaev brothers was interviewed in Russia, and an aunt was interviewed in Canada. Both claimed that the boys were framed, that this whole thing was a setup.

They may not know it, but they have set the table for America’s vast horde of conspiracy theorists. I imagine that these wackos are combing their imaginations  right now, and that in the days just ahead they will favor us with their speculations.

Do you need a little food for thought, guys? Glad to provide some.

First of all, we  have to implicate Dick Cheney in this. We know that with George W. Bush’s approval he masterminded the charade on Sept. 11, 2001, in which 19 kindly, lovable Al-qaeda militants were framed for the destruction of the World Trade Center and the severe damage to the Pentagon. The plot involved all law-enforcement agents of the United States, all Republican members of Congress, the entire Bush administration, and Fox News.  Oh, and did I mention Israel?

Some say that the U.S. establishment may not actually have executed the 9/11 attacks themselves, but that they had full information about the plot, and that they let it happen because they knew they could use it as a pretext to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq. Either way, it is Cheney’s fault, and Bush’s, and the Tea Party’s. And perhaps, though this is not certain, the pro-Life evangelicals and Rick Santorum. And a substantial portion of the people who are against same-sex marriage. And let’s throw in Mitt Romney, just in case.

This incident in Boston is essentially a repeat of that scenario.  We are not blaming President Obama or anybody in the present administration for this. Once again, we are blaming Bush and Cheney. They are both retired, with too much time on their hands, so they began looking around for ways to harm their fellow citizens, a task at which they are masters.

At the suggestion of a white-supremacist militia leader who lives nearby, Cheney decided some months ago to kill and injure a substantial portion of the participants and fans who planned to attend the Boston Marathon. The plot was given extra gravitas because of the Marathon’s proximity to Patriot’s Day. Patriot’s Day, which commemorates the battles at Lexington and Concord in 1775, has been a rallying point for white supremacists, because many of the people who fought for the Colonies in those battles owned slaves.

Cheney, who is believed to surreptitiously keep slaves on his cotton farm in Wyoming, thought it would be especially appropriate to conduct a terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon because Massachusetts is a blue state.

Then how, you may wonder, did the dupes in law enforcement come to the conclusion that the explosions at the Marathon were detonated by two obscure young men wearing baseball caps?

The preliminary explanation is that in fact the bombs were planted with the cooperation of George Bush’s two daughters. They are known to have visited the lingerie counter at Lord & Taylor, adjoining the Marathon route, not long before the race began.  While the sales staff was making a fuss over them, their bodyguards slipped away and planted a phony tape in the store’s surveillance camera. The tape showed the two fall guys, the Tsarnaev brothers, walking along a sidewalk carrying backpacks. There is nothing illegal about walking, or even carrying backpacks!

As to who actually planted the bombs, the principal suspects are Clarence Thomas and John Boehner, although the list of suspects can be expanded to include Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul if any of them seems likely to win the GOP presidential nomination next time. President Obama, who is aware of the speculation about a conspiracy in Boston, strongly favors a scenario in which Boehner would be implicated. Some of the more level-headed people in his inner circle have opposed this theory, saying that it is dubious, and that without proof it could turn out to be a lie.

To which Obama is said to have replied: “Lie, shmie, as long as it helps elect Democrats.”

    Arthur- you very well this goes MUCH deeper than that!! This goes back to Bush SR. On his deathbed (as he was before he got better) he wished for the destruction of some people from the middle east. They could not travel to the middle east, so they picked Boston as a suitable substitute. But if it was Bush Sr- then Reagan was involved, and if Reagan was involved- then Ollie North was involved- and if he was involved, then the whole Military Complex was involved- and that my friend- goes all the way back to the Founding Fathers- who coincidentally wrote the Constitution- yes, the Constitution- which everyone knows is just a form to keep the undocumented workers suppressed in America and is possibly a completely illegal document as far as the 1st, 2nd, 4th- we;ll all of it is concerned! So it stands to reason that this secret has been passed down from generation of POTUS until they chose that very moment to strike! at Boston! during the Marathon! and hurt average people on an average day! for no apparent reason! at some random time and date! and yes- Martha Stewart has her part to play in this for all the kitchenware she hawks all day long!

    I always KNEW Martha Stewart had it out for America…

    • artlouis

      Thanks, Kris. Sounds as plausible as my own version.

  • FloridaJim

    As more information surfaces the Chechnyans have a history of muslim terrorism. coupled with Ted Kennedy’s loosening of immigration laws to allow not only 18 of the 9-11 terrorists into America but this family as well it poses a real problem of finger pointing from< Obama…but he will, it is the Alinsky way.

  • GlenFS

    Cheney has an airtight alibi having completed his malicious mischief in Benghazi, he is currently in Syria working with the Russians to stabilize the Assad government. :)

    • artlouis

      I guess I owe Cheney an apology then.

  • Iklwa

    Too late!!

    I have already seen accusations that the bombers were Israelis operating under a “false flag” to bring more suspicion upon Muslims (as if there was not already plenty of reason for suspicion).

    Taking that hypothesis one step further puts the Israelis being financed by the Bush-Cheney machine.

    It would seem that no matter how simple an answer is, it must be twisted and changed to fit a particular agenda.

    • artlouis

      I think my satire preceded that lunacy.

      • Iklwa

        The truly frightening thing is, the person who wrote the Israeli bit believed his own drivel…at least he wanted someone to believe it.

        Maybe what is even more frightening is that someone WILL believe it!

  • Roadmaster

    “Profound political pundit,” LOL! Maybe add predictive to that also. I know a 9-11 truther and there is NO reasoning with him. He would rather believe the absurd and ridiculous than consider any fact or logic. Once I did get him to acknowledge my expertise on explosives (combat engineer, artillery, & multiple civilian jobs making big BOOMS), but still could not shake his firm belief in these far out conspiracies. He rejected my explanation of the difference between the bellows effect of floors collapsing onto themselves, and the high velocity of an explosion.

    Chalk it up to yet another mental disorder, like Liberalism. There is enough to despise and distrust about our gubmint without making stuff up!

    • artlouis

      Thanks, Roadmaster. Yes, there already are a lot of columns out there on the Internet that are saying much the same thing I said, only they mean it! I hope I remembered to time-stamp mine.

    What rubbish is Goldberg using now? I really thought he held journalism to a higher standard than this article. Since we seem to be blaming ridiculous scenarios for the bombing I really think it goes back to IKE. He won WW2, and unleashed the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain.upon the world. Might as well blame him.

    Don’t you get it? This is all about “white male privilege.”

    What’s that, you say> Well just read this Salon article by David Sirota and you’ll know!

    “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American
    There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats”

    By David Sirota

    As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

    This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling
    (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.

    Likewise, in the context of terrorist attacks, such privilege means white non-Islamic terrorists are typically portrayed not as representative of whole groups or ideologies, but as “lone wolf” threats to be dealt with as isolated law enforcement matters. Meanwhile, non-white or developing-world terrorism suspects are often reflexively portrayed as representative of larger conspiracies, ideologies and religions that must be dealt with as systemic threats — the kind
    potentially requiring everything from law enforcement action to military
    operations to civil liberties legislation to foreign policy shifts.
    . . . .

    Please, get with the program! Legislation is going down . . .

    (That is, unless the political left successfully turns this argument on its head, and convinces the American people — as they are currently trying to do — that these guys were nothing but “lone wolves.”

    Such as, Janet Napolitano immediately said:

    “NAPOLITANO: Well, right now, we have no evidence that it is
    anything other than a one-off . . .”

    Yes, when I first turned on the TV because a friend had texted me that a bomb went off at the Boston Marathon, I was switching back and forth from CNN to Fox News. On CNN, the Lead guy was Jake Tapper, and I like him so was checking that out. While they were showing the video of the bombs going off, Peter Bergan, who was with Jake, said “It could be Right Wing Extremists, or some group protesting taxes” That’s when I switched to Fox News and kept it there. I understand that President Obama is considering issueing an Executive Order to establish a National Registry data bank, and requiring licenses for anyone purchasing, or acquiring from their Grandma, a Pressure Cooker and a Back Pack!
    I’m so glad that Osama is dead and Terrorism has been defeated, except in Benghazi Libya and Boston, Massachusetts! Gotta go! I have a pressure cooker with a pot roast cooking in it and think I just heard a drone flying over my house!!!

    • artlouis

      It’s like the stopped clock that is correct twice a day. After a hundred or so more terror episodes, it may be that one of them will be committed by a right-winger. Then CNN can tell us that they told us so.

    3 or 4 summers ago, my neighbor had a native born, blue eyed, blond haired Bostonian man about in his mid 30s working as a handyman in her yard. During a conversation I struck up with him, he said the terrorists were justified in bringing down the Twin Towers in NY and killing Americans because of the way the US has treated the Middle East for decades. Not sharing his senitment, I asked him if he thought the American military officer who killed his fellow soldiers I think in Texas was innocent as well. He said absolutely, because those individuals deserved to die for criticizing the officer’s muslim faith. An uncle of the Boston Marathon bombers adamantly insists that the older of the two brothers was radicalized right here in the US long before visiting Russia. After having had my conversation with a native born Bostonian who loathes the US, I find that totally plausible and reasonable. After all, all anyone has to do is realize that the number of Jane Fondas has been multiplied exponentially in the US amongst native born Americans since the Vietnam War. Everyone who has been in a position to do something about the rise of anti-Americanism in the US since the Vietnam War but preferred to do nothing and let this patheitic sentiment grow unopposed and unabated and even be taught in our schools and univerisites created not only the Boston Marathon bombers, but those who are still out there who haven’t bombed anyone yet.

      Take hold of the young blue- green Brown young men who read this know your speaking of Loons who love Hanoi Jane and Che and all of the trash who hate Military training…..

    • artlouis

      It really is sickening. You have people now saying that anything bad that happens to America and Americans is justified. What will they say when it happens to them?

    • nickshaw

      They may have been “radicalized” right here in the US.
      Though being radicalized in an ideology known for being radical seems kinda’ redundant.

      Sure, they were in university ( a hot bed of anti-American thought ) but, more likely, it was at the MOSQUE they attended!

    Backpacks — those must be banned. If they can’t hide the pressure cookers, they
    can’t hide the bombs. It’s the backpack makers fault. Will Bloomberg be the first to ban them in NY? He’s the genius with new ideas.

  • worldwatchers

    The government of the United States of America has a duty
    to protect its citizens from terrorists around the world that it has allowed
    into our country. There is no reason for this to happen again they need a task
    force and they need to re-interview all people from Muslim terror states which
    is basically all of them. Something like these new checks at the very least
    will panic other one of the terrorists into making mistakes and that will make
    them much easier to catch but there cannot be any half measures. This political
    correctness is only going to get many more American citizens murdered and
    maimed this time as citizens we demand it to be stopped. The waste in this
    American government needs to be put under control and funneled through an
    agency that will re-interview the people that this government was foolish
    enough to let in. There is also a need to secure our borders there are
    servicemen returning home from the war many of them do not have jobs with their
    experience they can be border agents. The only way to protect America is just to do it. No more
    excuses from the Obama administration no more excuses from Janet Napolitano who have both done everything in their
    power to prevent making America safe.

    I guarantee this terrorist will not be tried as an enemy combatant Obama and HH Holder are not looking after American’s best interest. This
    will happen again unless Americans get tough. Demand America stops supporting governments
    who would see us burn!

    This should be America’s number one cause !!

Bldg 7 that just melted into a perfect, symmetrical demo collapse. as Mark Haines said AT THE TIME” these bldg collapsed in the same way, it HAD TO BE PLANNED!! ” Then the Israelis were let go just like the Saudi National was deported at Boston. these events ALL have a big diff between eyewitness and eventual official story; they all have a drill of the event at the exact same time and always a “loner” who takes the blame despite contradictory evidence from the grassy knoll, the people in the Sikh theater, the CO movie theater, the others apprehended in Conn and on and on..the bottom line will be how the gov’t seizes the opportunity to use this (regardless of whether involved) to restrict freedoms, hgace TSA verywhere, ban powder and pressure cookers or anything made of metal, etc..
