As the Facts Come in From Boston ...

Since our last visit more facts have emerged
regarding the Boston Marathon bombing,
two suspects have been identified among
them. And with the revelation of these facts,
some side matters have come to light.

Two brothers from central Asia, likely from
one of the nations there which were once
provinces of the former Soviet Union, were
found to be the suspects by the FBI and the
local police. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and
Dzokhar Tsarnaev, 19, wounded over 250
people while killing three with the two bombs
that they devised and detonated near the
finish line of the marathon. The older brother
was killed in a shootout with police while the
younger escaped, causing a massive manhunt
to be conducted accompanied by a lockdown
of Boston and her suburbs; no one could leave
their homes, all public transportation  --- buses,
subway trains --- ceased operating, businesses
and schools closed, and two local professional
sports teams, the Boston Red Sox and the Boston
Bruins, cancelled their scheduled games during
the lengthy hunt for the younger Tsarnaev brother.
This remaining suspect was apprehended while
hiding in a boat in the back yard of a resident of
the suburb of Watertown, having been wounded
in another confrontation with law enforcement
personnel. This took place on Friday of this past
week, just the day after my most recent post.

Officials, speaking anonymously, said the two
brothers did not appear to have been directed by a
foreign terrorist organization; it is now thought that
they became radicalized by web sites set up by
same, soaked up the propaganda, and acted on it
on their own. This has been determined by limited
information provided by Dzokhar Tsarnaev to
authorities, which seemed to indicate this.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev had traveled to Russia fairly
recently, but no evidence has emerged showing
his having received instructions from anyone there
that lead to the bombing.

Yesterday, the remaining brother was charged with
using a weapon of mass destruction and malicious
destruction of property. The death penalty is a
distinct possibility should he be convicted.

Now, what has come forth on the periphery of all
this is just as riveting, perplexing, even shocking.
Much commentary has come from left-wing pundits,
most if not all with a common aim; to paint the
terrible tragedy as anything other than the scheme
of radical Islam. MSNBC has been busy downplaying
any possibility of Islamic influence on the brothers,
employing "We have no idea why they did this"
dialogue in a segment featuring one of their talk
show hosts Rachel Maddow with Georgetown
University professor Charles King --- what his
specialty is and how it relates to the subject matter
I have no idea, but the professor uttered, and
Maddow readily agreed with, these comments:

" ... I don't know why we tend to focus on this one
particular aspect because these guys frankly have a
lot of consonants in their names and we're kind of
worried about that somehow. But in lots of other
contexts of mass killing, we go to other kinds of
motivations and I think we really ought to look at
those in this case as well."

Are you serious, professor? Why are you so eager to
gloss over the information uncovered in the investi-
gation conducted by the authorities, especially those
given by the surviving suspect himself? And Rachel
Maddow not prodding for any reasons for doing thus?
Why not analyze the information obtained from the
source itself, at the very least? Dzohkar Tsarnaev
even told police that his older brother was the one who
thought up the bombing, and that he wanted to "defend"
Islam from attack (attack from whom? Perhaps he
thought that the crowd of spectators along with the
participants in the marathon were the enemy?).
And then David Sirota, one of the staff at,
a very left-leaning news and commentary web site,
stated outright on the site that his readers should hope
that the suspect(s) turn out to be white conservatives,
maybe Tea Party activists(!), giving as his reason that
it would then not undermine President Obama. In the
meantime, the lame-stream media, the government,
and other so-called experts like the prof on Maddow's
show are going all out to look past the most obvious
possibility, if not definite cause, for the attack on
the Boston Marathon by looking at and discussing
everything else that they would rather see and deal
with. Your disgusted Peasant smells the hideous
stench of political correctness! And remember, our
current administration has established a rule for
itself to not use terms such as "radical Islam",
"Islamofascist", or "terrorist attack". They have
replaced these terms in their vernacular with more
politically correct phrases such as "man-made disaster"
for terrorist attack, and so forth. George Orwell, call
your office!

By the way, this gruesome twosome became American
citizens in the years that they have been here. The
younger Tsarnaev got his citizenship very recently,
all the while that this sorry, misbegotten regime has
held power, weakening our borders and our immigration
laws. And their equally disgusting pals wishing out loud
for the culprits responsible for the Boston horror to be
conservative white Americans just so they can bolster
President Obama by further denouncing those who oppose
his statist policies and having proof that they would
employ violence to make their point! I never thought
we would ever see such an obscenity take place in our
great country. These horrible people don't give a flying
whatever for our safety and well-being; all that matters
to them is their ongoing acquisition of power, and their
quest to transform our United States into a leftist

Meanwhile, let us continue to pray for the people of
Boston, especially those who were injured or killed
in the attack at their marathon and their families and
friends, and also pray for our country as well. Both
Boston and the United States are hurting, and rather
