An objective point of view, if you will.

No doubt, it is a tragedy. God bless those involved.

BUT!

You can't dismiss the bigger picture here. That's how they get you.

When the gay marriage controversy broke out, I said I'm sure there's something going on behind the scenes that they don't want us paying mind to. Called it! During that controversy, the Monstanto Protection Act was signed into play.

And today, watching the over-hype on the news about this bombing, it seems that, with the repeated interview with scared citizens, the news people comparing this incident with 9/11 on more than one occasion, and the repeated word "terror" being used quite a bit, I've come to the conclusion that, once again, by exploiting this tragedy, they are distracting us from something.

And guess what?

Just a couple hours after this speculation, I came across some interesting information.




Yep. Slide-a-hand.

Again.

And, once again... CALLED IT!

Point being; when you find yourself emotionally provoked by something extreme being displayed on the news, always ask yourself; Why do they want me to see this?

They're counting on that emotional reaction from you. They have their own priors, and they can't have citizens getting in the way of them, so they keep us distracted.

Its a simple slide-a-hand card trick. We're just a deck of cards to them, and they're plotting a strategy so they can win the pot, every single time.

Wake up!

Don't get engulfed in the mainstream propaganda. Come on!

When some sh!t hits the fan on main stream news, the first thing you should think is this;

Why do they want me to see this?

EDIT; Also, I forgot to mention that the bomb squad was hovering around before the incident. There was supposed to be a simulation drill today regarding that type of situation.

Weird, right? Especially considering the exact thing happened with flight 77 and 9/11...

*sleight-of-hand lol

But yes, I agree with your points. I'm sure this won't be the last time something like this occurs.

pretty serious stuff. Sleight of hand card tricks? I'll agree they are dirty and low but maiming innocents at a local level to make you look the other way seems a stretch? Why not just bomb another wedding in Afghanistan and make it mainstream?

Eh... it was probrably the redneck accent on the Dukes of Hazzard movie that threw me off. "Slide a hand" still sounds better to me, though.

I know these things will continue to happen, but the way people interpret them is all important. That's what I'm trying to explain to people. Don't think of the news as news, think of it as a trap. Always think; How can they benefit from me buying into this story?

I couldn't agree more with you. Soo many people watch the MSM news outlets and their distracted from what's going on behind the scenes. It's a shame, really.

ETA: as a grammar Nazi I admit that soo is not really a word in the English language. Lol. I use it a lot though.

Because its a lot more tear jerking for us if its happening on our own soil, to our own people.

There was a bombing three times bigger in Iraq today that barely anyone's heard about. It killed at least fifty people, and injured 200. That was hardly covered, but the Boston bombing was blown way out of whack. Also, it makes us look like the poor helpless victims who need the government's protection, not the citizens advocating the big bad bomber bad guys overseas.

Also, that's not to say there aren't other things they're hiding from us we haven't discovered yet.

More things will unveil soon, I'm sure.

Well I hope you're wrong all through my system. If it's coming to that, we are truly F*%#ed!

Well, it's big news here in the States because something like this rarely happens, hence all of the news reporting on it. Granted, over in Iraq on those Countries, bombings are frequent. We'd have a broadcast a couple of times a week if we were to have something like that on the news in the U.S.

Note my first sentence.

Problem>Bombing at a marathon
Reaction>Fear, anger
Solution>Pending...

I'm going to wait and see how MSM tosses and turns the story around to fit their agenda. It would be obvious by tomorrow with updates on the story to understand the bigger picture. Can't wait.

I hope I'm wrong too.

We as Americans have an all consuming pride, and when our own people get hurt, we outrage and rave. If anyone who happens to control mainstream media ever wanted to control us, they certainly have the means.

I was looking for a thread to post this in. I have formed an opinion to the bombings.
(I know, big deal!
)

Qui Bono?
Who benefits?

I've read numerous posts and seen many opinions.

But I wanted to take a rational, objective look at this horrible event.

Who benefits.

Obama?
DHS?
The Middle East?
North Korea?

Obama doesn't benefit, in fact, it'll probably be a wash for him because it happened on his watch but he does have an opportunity to look like a leader.

So no, not Obama.

DHS? They may get a bigger budget out of this, but they failed in protecting, so no. Not DHS.

The Middle East? Hell, we're leaving. They have nothing to gain.

North Korea? Why? Kerry was probably giving them all sorts of concessions, so no, not them either.

Any potential freedoms lost to this? Any new laws to come from this?
Like what? No more marathons? Ban trash cans?

Silly.

So I'm thinking a person or two wanted to do something evil. School shootings have been done. Some idiot or idiots wanted to make news. Nothing more.

It's the price we pay, living in a free society, that we have to endure acts of terror like this. But we can learn to endure. To stand back up, To keep on going. And not let a small number of evil idiots ruin our take on freedom and liberty.

My heart goes out to those killed or injured.

One cannot form a rational conclusion when it happened just today. Wait a few days and see what the MSM is feeding the public and that's when we will understand the bigger picture but until then chew on a carrot Beez

Well, the DHS failed to protect, undoubtedly. So wouldn't that be a good reason for granting them more money to beef up security so no such thing happens again?

Perhaps. But we can try to avoid irrational accusations while discerning the truth.

But yes, will enjoy a carrot while the data rolls in.

Its looking more and more like a false flag to me.

Its the ONLY thing any of the news channels are talking about.

They're hiding something from us, maybe something a lot bigger than what I posted in the OP.

Who knows. Hopefully we'll see it soon.

A false flag can only be seen after the fact, so we'll have to wait and see if this event changes any legislation.

So, we have to look at the facts.

1) Done on US soil at a well-populated and publicized event.
2) Done with crude, homemade weapons, not military grade.
3) None have claimed responsibility.

So far, this has all the earmarks of a homegrown domestic terrorist act. If it was international terrorists, more would be injured and dead (due to professional explosives) and they would have claimed credit. We can even rule out militia groups for the same reasons (no statement and crude materials). So far, all the evidence points to a lone wacko or small wacko group.
