All MSM implying “We need to give up Rights for Safety and Security” after Boston. Video of Major Oddity of bombing coverage


I have listened to some MSM broadcasting of the Boston bombs.   From Fox News, NBC, CNN, they all are implying “We need to give up our Freedoms for Security.”

Fox news had a man on saying that Israel is safe because of the security and the people in the U.S. on holding on to “individual rights” instead of being safe and secure.  He said a conversation will need to be started.  They were implying it was “Patriots” over and over yesterday and home grown terrorism.  Wolf Blitzer of CNN wondered if “Patriots had anything to do with it?”  They repeated “Patriot day” over and over again during that segment.  I understand Biden even said “I believe it may be ‘Patriots’ against any gun control.”  They are trying to equate being a Patriot is being a terrorist now in the sheeples eyes.

They were saying they could go through any bags and purses that they wanted on the streets of Boston now without cause and that will go to other cities.  So there goes our rights for privacy and no search and seizure without cause.   Any excuse for us to become completely as the Nazi’s were.

Someone had put this video on a forum.  Remember that MSM can create things live now.  It seems this video below shows some type of images being created/erased.  It is very odd.

SchwartzReport: One Third of Americans (USA) Qualify as Idiots

I am having a hard time accepting this, it depresses me and makes me uncomfortable but data is data, and I am afraid I am going to have to accept that about a third of the country are too stupid to handle the 21st century. Here is some more data: Fifty per cent of the people in the U.S. have an I.Q. of 100 or less, and about 15 per cent have an I.Q. lower than 85. That didn’t matter! much in the 13th century, but it matters a lot in the 21st.

One-third of Americans Believe God Decides who Wins Sporting Events

A recent study by the Center for Public Religion has found that nearly 3 out of every 10 Americans believes that God decides the outcome of sporting events by favoring players who are virtuous and who God perceives as good.

According to the study, ‘Americans are less likely to believe that God plays a role in the outcome of sporting events than they are to believe God rewards religious athletes. While only about 3-in-10 (27%) Americans, believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event, a majority (53%) believe that God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success, compared to 42% who disagree.”

‘We can’t just gloss over this,” said Dennis Traynor of Acronym TV. ‘A majority of U.S. citizens in 2013 think that the all-knowing creator of the universe is sitting in the heavens looking down upon the extreme poverty and misery that encompass the world that he created in six days and sees that half of his beautiful creatures live on less than $2.50 a day and 80 percent of humanity living on less than $10 a day and not only gives a shit what happens on Super Bowl Sunday, but will be rewarding one team over the other based on the purity and faithfulness of the football players’ religion on either team.”



Manti Te’o: Notre Dame defends star linebacker as victim of hoax

(ChicagoTribune) Facing a media throng just days before competing for a national championship, Notre Dame’s star linebacker Manti Te’o fielded a question about the death of his girlfriend and his ability to rise above the tragedy.

VOTE: Do you believe Manti Te'o?It was a benign question, one he had heard dozen of times before as Lennay Kekua’s passing had been woven so tightly into the narrative of his triumphant senior year. And he answered it as he always had.

But at that time, Te’o — and university officials — knew there was far more to the story than platitudes about football and family.

A week earlier, on Dec. 26, the Heisman Trophy runner-up told Notre Dame officials that his girlfriend did not exist and that he was a victim of an elaborate Internet hoax, the school said Wednesday.

“In many ways, Manti was the perfect mark because he is a guy who is so willing to believe in others and so ready to help, that as this hoax played out in a way that called upon those tendencies of Manti, it roped him more and more into the trap,” Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said. “He was not a person who would have a second thought about offering his assistance and help.”

Swarbrick outlined a bizarre story in which Te’o learned his girlfriend never existed about three months after her supposed death. The player received a phone call Dec. 6, while at an awards show, from what he believed was Kekua’s old cellphone number. The woman on the other end — in a voice he recognized as Kekua’s — told him that she wasn’t dead.

Two days after Te’o was thrown for a loop by a dead girlfriend rising from the grave, here is how he answered a question about charity work he had performed this year.

“I worked with Relay for Life stuff,” he said. “I really got hit with cancer. I don’t like cancer at all. I lost both my grandparents and my girlfriend to cancer.”

She later tried to rekindle the relationship, Swarbrick said.

“Every single thing about this, until that day in the first week of December, was real to Manti,” Swarbrick said. “There was no suspicion it wasn’t. No belief it might not be. And so the pain was real. The grief was real. The affection was real. That’s the nature of this sad, cruel game.”

Swarbrick likened the hoax to the movie “Catfish,” in which a person creates a fake persona with someone else’s picture, then dupes another person into a romantic relationship. The film spurred a popular MTV show by the same name that investigates online relationships to see if the participants are real.

Te’o notified his coaches of the situation Dec. 26, after discussing it with his parents over the Christmas holiday. Swarbrick said he met with the player twice and found his story about the exclusively online and telephonic relationship to be consistent. Te’o and Kekua never met face to face, Swarbrick said.

“Several meetings were set up where Lennay never showed,” he said.

Kekua’s purported passing came within 48 hours of the real death of Te’o’s grandmother, Annette Santiago, in September. That double loss vaulted Te’o onto the cover of Sports Illustrated and, along with Notre Dame’s eventual undefeated regular season, into the Heisman Trophy mix.

Te’o finished second in that voting to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, tying for the best finish ever by a pure defender.

The scam does more than shatter a college football fairy tale. It also leaves a black mark on sports journalism, as many news outlets — including the Tribune — ran stories about Kekua’s passing without verifying her death. There was no published obituary for Kekua and no California driver’s license issued to anyone with that name. The Social Security Administration database had no record of anyone with the surname Kekua dying in 2012.

Yet respected national publications such as Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times all ran stories about Te’o’s heartbreak. The Chicago Tribune published 15 articles mentioning her death in the past four months.

An Academic All-American with a 3.3 grade-point average, Te’o, 21, released a statement Wednesday insisting that he had been duped into having a long-term, “emotional relationship” with an Internet impostor. Describing the situation as “painful and humiliating,” Te’o said he believed he maintained an authentic relationship with Kekua over the phone and via the Internet.

“To think that I shared … my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been,” the statement read.

Notre Dame hired a private investigator, who produced a final report on Jan. 4, and the university shared the findings with the Te’o family Jan. 5 during the run-up to the BCS championship game against Alabama. Swarbrick said he believed the Te’os were poised to release the story next week before the sports website Deadspin broke it.

The independent investigation revealed online “chatter” among the alleged perpetrators, Swarbrick said, that demonstrated “the joy they were taking” in fooling Te’o. The pranksters even made sure that the player sent white roses in her honor and told him what time they planned to close her casket.

“There was a place to send flowers,” Swarbrick said. “There was no detail of the hoax left undone.”

The Deadspin story, however, is raising questions about Te’o’s involvement in the ruse. The site says Kekua’s purported Twitter account was created by a California man with ties to the linebacker and his family. An unnamed source suggested the death was a publicity stunt hatched by Te’o and his West Coast counterpart, according to Deadspin.

At the very least, Te’o and his family have made the truth difficult to decipher because they made references to Te’o meeting Kekua during their courtship. In October, for example, Te’o described her to ESPN as the most beautiful person he had ever met, and his father told the South Bend Tribune in October that Kekua had traveled to Hawaii, Te’o’s home state, “every once in a while … so he would meet with her there.”

When asked about rising above the tragedy in the days before the game, Te’o said, “I think whenever you’re in football, it takes your mind off a lot of things. You know this team is very special to me and the guys on it have been there for me through the good times and the bad times.”

Notre Dame acknowledged Wednesday that it did not encourage the player to set the record straight before the title game. Instead, officials sat silent while reporters prepared stories about Kekua’s fake death, fake leukemia and fake Stanford degree.

“We encouraged him to try to focus forward and focus on the game,” Swarbrick said.
