    I’m just trying to get people to look at the information. Your discrediting the site but there actually is some great information on there. I’m not really sure why your throwing the the term conspiracy theory around.

    I took my tin foil off because whoever is DJ’ing for the CIA has been playing some really lovely Bach through my fillings lately.

    Kenneth’s frequency is sublime.

    I’m already wearing my tinfoil hat, to protect myself from the mind-control rays emitted from the Wal-Mart satellite.

  4. Naja pallida says:

    The first thing any conspiracy theory does is contrive some bit of “evidence” and then claim the authorities aren’t investigating it, without having any clue at all what authorities are actually investigating, or what things they have already ruled out as potential avenues with which not to bother expending precious resources and manpower. Grain of salt. Especially when the writer refuses to do anything to express their credentials as to why they should be taken seriously on any of the matters they write.

    Judging from your posting history, I see that you’re just a spammer trying to get page views on a conspiracy theory blog, so that makes it all but impossible to have a discussion on the issue anyway.

    Very funny. Stewart just nails the absurdity of the media circus. Canine dogs!

  6. karmanot says:

    From what I heard, Barbara Bush’s coma babies were re-animated and have formed a secret corporatist sleeper cell to re-create America in the image of WAL*MART.—-no, really. :-)

  7. Jankowitts says:

    There seems to be some evidence that should be investigated that isn’t. Like eyewitnesses saying there was a drill announcement. I just want truth from everyone.

  8. Naja pallida says:

    After any incident that scares a lot of people, and gets national media attention, the conspiracy theory sites start replicating like bacteria. One has to use a little common sense to filter the lunacy.

    Dead on target critique, which is why Jon Stewart is one of my faves. I watched CNN on the Internet in the 1990s, but haven’t paid them much mind since. They seem to swing back and forth between sensationalism and corporatist worship. Thankfully,
    “The Guardian” is around for us English-speaking folks, and here in South Florida, Spain’s
    “El Pais” also gives us news with a non-corporatist perspective.

    Jon Stewart did a great take-down of CNN last night. Again.

    It was really hilarious. You should check it out:

  11. FLL says:

    Agreed. Foreign media, such as “The Guardian” or news sources in France, Germany and Spain, are often more unbiased.

  12. ezpz says:

    Apology accepted and appreciated. My point was simply that I wouldn’t hold my breath for verification of ANYTHING by our corporate media.

  13. FLL says:

    My apologies for misreading your comment. (No more facetious aluminum foil references.) People need to verify the footage the CNN videographer took. With enough Internet chatter, it will come out.

  14. ezpz says:

    Thanks for the clip. As far as your tin foil accusations, I don’t believe I said anything about any conspiracy, though I don’t take what we’re being told as gospel truth by any stretch. There are many questions, many contradictions, some retractions. Too many not to question the veracity of it all.

  15. ezpz says:

    That site seems a bit suspicious to me. From a quick glean, it seems to be one of those WND/Glenn Beck/Islamophobic type of place. Not too credible and VERY slanted toward ridiculous conspiracy theories.

    Mind you, I’m not saying that what we’re being told is gospel truth, but that site seems too far out there to have any kind of credibility.

  16. FLL says:

    Here is the video:

    With the video alone, it’s impossible to tell whether this was suspect #1, Tamerlan. No doubt, the Boston police were looking for a suspect meeting the general description that they had, which would explain why they might have detained the wrong man (and asked him to strip). Also, why would the documented communications early Saturday morning from the Boston Police Department (see my link above) have stated that the man was no longer a suspect if he was indeed Tamerlan? I may or may not ask you to return the roll of aluminum foil that you borrowed from me (depending on further information). Aluminum foil is meant for storing food in the freezer, not for making tin foil hats.

  17. ezpz says:

    “…We need verification from CNN…”

    Good luck with that. It would be nice, but not likely to happen.

  18. FLL says:

    I watched the CNN video that you’re talking about—I think they said the CNN photographer/videographer is named “Gabe.” It’s impossible to ascertain that the naked man in the video is suspect #1. (He was asked to strip.) We need verification from CNN concerning who the naked man is.

    This was a terrorist act and will be treated as such. There are no excuses for murdering civilians. The worst terrorism is committed by the US and NATO.

    This act of terrorism and the attacks on 9-11 and the attacks on about 30 US embassies worldwide are all traceable to US/NATO policies.

    Those include aiding and abetting the zionists and their ethnic cleansing against Palestinians, of refusing to stop the genocide against muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina, attacks on a dozen muslim nations from Libya to Pakistan, and above all on the genocide in Iraq and the US/NATO invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

    There is only one way that civilians in the US can avoid becoming victims and that is to;

    Force the government and the twin parties of war to stop paying for the murder of Palestinians and let them (and the Arab Spring revolutionaries) settle the question of reuniting Palestine under Palestinian control.

    Call for an International War Crimes tribunal to investigate the Bushes, the Clintons and Obama.

    Call for a Constitutional Amendment renouncing and forbidding aggression by the US and accompanying laws making it a capital offense to plot wars of aggression and use disinformation methods to promote wars a aggression.

    Free Brad Manning and give him the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    Democrats and Republicans will do none of that so they’ll have to be left behind while we fight for world peace.

    His lawyers are named “Grape” and “Fuck” in German?

  21. jankowitts says:

    Just take a look at some of the articles on most people think that the FBI was directly involved with the bombing! I mean really whats going on I was shocked when I read those articles!
