(CNN) — Two bombs struck near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, turning a celebration into a bloody scene of destruction.
The blasts threw people to the ground, killing two and injuring dozens.
The Boston Globe reported that more than 100 people were being treated at area hospitals, including several children.
"Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice," President Barack Obama vowed.
'Like a huge cannon’
The terrorist attack, near the marathon’s finish line, triggered widespread screaming and chaos, shattered windows and barricades and sent smoke billowing into the air at Copley Square.
They were about 50 to 100 yards apart, officials said.
"It felt like a huge cannon," a witness told CNN about one of theblasts.
The bombs shook buildings, sending people to seek shelter under tables, witnesses said.
Federal authorities are classifying the bombings as a terrorist attack, but it’s not clear whether the origin was domestic or foreign, a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation said.
Another explosive device found
Authorities in Boston found at least one other explosive device that they were dismantling, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said.
Davis said a third blast at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library was believed to be related to the marathon bombings, but police later said that incident was believed to be fire-related. The library said all staff and visitors are safe.
It was unclear who may have planted the marathon bombs. There were no credible threats before the race, a state government official said.
As authorities searched the scene, numerous suspicious packages were found, possibly because people fled the area, leaving items behind. Investigators were checking them.
The Marriott hotel at Copley Place was evacuated as a precaution.
The Lenox Hotel was also evacuated as a precaution, the Boston Globe reported.
Numerous hospitals treat the wounded
Massachusetts General Hospital said it was treating 22 injured people, six of them in critical condition. Tufts Medical Center reported that it was treating nine people. Brigham and Women’s Hospital said it received between 18 and 20 injured. Boston Medical Center reported 20 patients from the marathon, most with lower leg injuries.
Boston Children’s Hospital was treating seven injured people — six children and a parent of one of the children. Their conditions range from “good to serious,” a hospital spokeswoman said.
Carney Hospital in Dorchester, Massachusetts, reported receiving four or five patients, none in serious condition.
Combined, that brings the number of injured to as many as 82. There are other hospitals in the Boston area as well.
The full number of casualties was not immediately known, Davis said.
Crowds were in the area watching the runners.
"This is a horrific day in Boston," Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said in a statement.
The Federal Aviation Administration placed a flight restriction over the site of the blasts.
Other cities, including New York and Washington, tightened security as a result. Following standard protocol, the White House cleared out an area in front of the West Wing.
On Charles Street, between Boylston and Beacon streets, there was a huge police presence, and SWAT team members toted rifles.
"If you see something, say something," Mark Boughton, mayor of Danbury, Connecticut, wrote on Twitter. "All cities will be on a heightened state of alertness per Homeland Security protocols."
The explosions occurred at about 2:45 p.m., more than two hours after the first of the race’s nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line, CNN Producer Matt Frucci reported.
The race was halted as was subway service into the area.
Runners east of Massachusetts Avenue were directed to Boston Common; those west of Massachusetts Avenue were directed to Kenmore Square, the state’s emergency management agency said.
Troops from the Massachusetts National Guard were assisting police as well.
One doctor in a medical tent about 150 yards from the explosion said he was immediately mobilized.
"We all went running over there and started to bring people into the medical tent," he said. "It was not good. Very bad. Like a war zone. 9/11 immediately came to mind.”
Runner Carly Lissak, of Arlington, Texas, who turned 20 Monday, had crossed the finish line about five minutes before the explosions.
She was in the medical tent when she heard the explosions. “It sounded like thunder and the ground shook a little,” Lissak said.

Every false flag event in recent memory has been accompanied by a staged drill.”
Boston SWAT team describes throat wound as a knife cut: “They took away his voice, his ability to talk to the world because they did not want the truth to come out.” - Dzhokahr’s mother
Neighbor: Boston Bomber Dzhokhar was a ‘lovely kid’: “Nothing in his character that would suggest anything remotely capable of any of these things he’s suspected of doing.”
Dzhokhar’s Former Classmate: ‘He was a great kid.’
Ex Classmates on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: “He was a nice guy. If someone told me that he punched some dude in the face, I would be like ‘What Jahar?’ That doesn’t strike me as Jahar.”
Classmates of Dzhokhar remember him: “Never thought I would see something like this for sure./I still can’t consider him guilty. If you knew him, he was a nice guy, there was no reason to not like him at all./He was nice, calm./He was nice. He wouldn’t even make a joke because it seemed like he wouldn’t even want to bring any harm towards anybody.”
Classmates on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: “He never seemed like the kind of person that could ever do this.”
Dzhokhar’s Classmate: “All I’m saying is this case is a special variety of fucked up and this kid is innocent.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Classmate: ”He was a nice guy. He never seemed to be anyone who would do a crime like this.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Fmr. Classmate: Makes No Sense: “He was very sweet, kind, hilarious, very smart, just a good person. It doesn’t make any sense. The facts don’t add up.”
Dzhokhar’s classmate: “He was a very friendly kind person. It seems like the opposite person that has been doing these crimes. It’s absolutely shocking. “
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s classmate: “He is the exact opposite of the person that’s been committing these crimes.”
Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Coach: “He was ‘opposite’ of a terrorist.”
Tsarnaevs’ relative: “Tamerlan wasn’t a religious fanatic. It’s impossible to believe that they could have carried it out. Just impossible.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s ex-coach searches for answers: “I started crying. That wasn’t the Jahar I knew. The Jahar I knew wasn’t trying to throw sticks and dynamites. He was respected so much. The Jahar that I knew, he wasn’t extreme in any way. He said I’m a Muslim, but I’m not really a Muslim. He talked like that.”
Friends Of Dzhokhar Talk About What A Great Guy He Is: “He loved everybody. He was a typical American kid. I would never expect this would happen./I thought it was a joke. It’s almost impossible to me. He’s such a nice guy.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friend reacts to news: “He never showed any signs of doing this. I can’t comprehend it. He was one of the more peaceful religious people I know. He never brought up any political views whatsoever. I honestly can’t accept it.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friend: “He was the nicest kids I know and everybody I knew thought the same thing. We can’t even believe what happened. I’m not convinced. He’s very friendly and well liked. I can’t even believe that anything like that could happen.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friends’ thoughts. “He is the last dude to be harming anyone or anything./The media is filled with lies./He was harmless./The Jahar i know would never ever do this./What the media has showed you ppl, deep down inside that isn’t the person I’ve come to know. Never would I have suspected him./Jahar was one of the chillest kids./The government really turned everybody against Jahar when you get to know him he’s the most chillest person, you guys are heartless.”
Dzhokhar’s friend speaks: “I believe that Jahar is innocent and a good person. He really is. I don’t think he did this. There’s not one person that could say anything bad thing about him.”
Man knew Boston bombing suspect, friend says: ”He felt like there’s going to be a setup..bad setup against him. Because he told me, ‘They are making up such crazy stuff, I don’t know why they doing it. I’m answering the questions, but they are still making up some, like, connections, some crazy stuff.”
Boston bombing suspects’ aunt: “This was ‘staged. My nephews cannot be part of this terrible act that was committed in the streets of Boston, They have no motive for that. They have no ideas to be going to this kind of act. It’s just not the case, it cannot be true. Agencies claimed they have done.’”
Boston bombing suspects’ dad: “They were set up, they were set up! Someone framed them. US security services set up my sons.” said that they are very nice kids who have no experience with weapons and explosives.”
Boston bombing suspects’ mom: “I’m 100% sure that this was a set up. He was counseled my the FBI for 3 to 5 years! They were counseling every step of him. It’s impossible for both of them to do such things. ”
FBI used Photoshop in Boston evidence: “Comparing pictures he took of the scene with the photo released by the FBI, reporter of The Digital Journal suggests the FBI photo shows clear evidence of being made with photoshop.”
Ibrahim Todashev thought Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were framed, said his father Todasheva: “My son, as you say, he did not believe that Tsarnaev did it. He did not believe. He said: This is a set up.”
Officer Who Released Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Photos, ‘Relieved Of Duty: ”has been ordered not to speak to media about the Watertown events”
"There are people that know the truth but stay silent & there are people that speak the truth but we don’t hear them cuz they’re the minority. Most of you are conditioned by the media." - Boston Marathon Bomber Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Twitter Account Shows Discontent
Loose Ends in Boston Bombing tied to House of Saud and Haliburton: “The Tsarnaev brothers were the perfect patsies. The brothers were not only patsies, but Tamerlan was murdered after he was arrested by those who have committed the false flag operation or by his handlers. Their uncle has been working as a contractor for Haliburton.”
An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a “drill” was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast. The news station also reports that Stevenson “thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.”
The Obama administration is making a two-fold argument for why it can force Christians to act against their faith in complying with the regulation it has issued under the Obamacare law that requires virtually all health care plans to cover, without co-pay, sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs.
The first argument the administration makes against the owners of Hobby Lobby is that Americans lose their First Amendment right to freely exercise their religion when they form a corporation and engage in commerce. A person’s Christianity, the administration argues, cannot be carried out through activities he engages in through an incorporated business.
The second argument the administration makes to justify forcing Christians to act against their faith is more sweeping. Here the administration argues it can force a person to act against his religion so long as the coercion is done under the authority of a law that is neutral and generally applicable—in other words, as long as the law was not written specifically to persecute Christians as Christians, the government can use that law to persecute Christians.
"Remember the word that I said to you…If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you…because they do not know Him who sent Me.” - John 15:18-21
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for my sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.” - Matthew 5:10-12
"But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.” - Luke 21:12
As the nation approaches the much publicized fiscal cliff, it also approaches a moral cliff: Will the Obama administration compel Christians to act against their faith? As of now, the answer seems plain: Starting Tuesday, it will.
“President Obama “strongly” supports the renewal of the assault weapons ban and would back new gun legislation, the White House said Tuesday.
“He is actively supportive of, for example, Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein’s stated intent to revive a piece of legislation that would reinstate the assault weapons ban,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said during his daily briefing. On Monday, Carney would only say that the president supports the return of the ban.
Carney also offered some other gun laws Obama would back. “He supports and would support legislation that addresses the problem of the so-called gun show loophole, and there are other elements of gun legislation that he could support … high capacity ammunition clips, for example. That is certainly something he would be interested in looking at,” he said.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO STAGE ‘REICHSTAG’ EVENT AS TRIGGER FOR MARTIAL LAW, DHS SOURCE WARNS
- ‘Reichstag’ event could involve false assassination attempt blamed on “white supremacists”
- Incited racial riots would lead to calls for government “crackdown”
- Civil unrest would lead to martial law, DHS travel checkpoints, indefinite delay of elections
Washington, DC – The Obama agents, through the DHS and other assorted colluders, are plotting a major ‘Reichstag’ event to generate racial riots and produce the justification for martial law, delaying the November 2012 elections, possibly indefinitely, a DHS whistleblower informed the Canada Free Press on Tuesday.
The ‘Reichstag Event’ would take the form of a staged assassination attempt against Barack Obama, “carefully choreographed” and manufactured by Obama operatives. It would subsequently be blamed on “white supremacists” and used to enrage the black community to rioting and looting, the DHS source warned.
The Obama administration would then use the violence and chaos they created as justification for the imposition of martial law in major urban cities in America, the creation of DHS checkpoints, restriction of travel, and the indefinite delay of the November 2012 elections.
The Reichstag event refers to a fire started during Hitler’s rise to power. The fire allowed him to grab emergency powers and murder his opposition. Historians have long believed that Hitler started the fire himself, while he blamed it on the Communists.
The anonymous whistleblower elaborated on how the Obama administration is using the Occupy movement, labor unions, and other assorted subversive groups to create massive chaos within the nation.
“Using untracked campaign funds, they are paying people to infiltrate the various movements to cause physical destruction of property and disrupt commerce. That began last year, but has increased ten-fold already this year,” the DHS source shared.
“Obama is using some high profile people as pawns to forment the revolution. I heard several times through very credible sources that [Louis] Farrakhan is on the CIA payroll. Other have been named as well, but I’m not prepared to identify them yet. Farrakhan is to coordinate the Blacks and the Muslims to prepare for riots this summer, using any means necessary.”
The recent revelations appeared to complement warnings given by other government insiders, who alleged that Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson were all agent provocateurs whose mission was to inflame racial tensions and spark open conflict in the streets of America.
According to the DHS source, a global economic collapse is coming, which the Obama administration is well aware of. They wish to build a system of global governance from the ashes of the previous financial system. In order for this mission to be completed, the Obama administration needs more time at the helm of power. Their reasons for concern are justified; as recently as May 8, influential political prognosticator Dick Morris predicted a Romney landslide if the election were held today.
The shocking news also seemed to confirm recent actions taken by the DHS, such as their purchase of 450 million rounds of ammunition and their recent BlackHawk helicopters operation in Chicago, which looked frighteningly similar to a civil unrest exercise, but was described as “routine training”.
The concept of a staged assassination attempt against Barack Obama is not new as well and was first voiced by a knowledgeable White House insider known only as “WHI”.
Ulsterman: So what is it? Pull what off?
Insider: A manufactured threat against the President of the United States. Something easily digested by the media and the American public. Not a real threat – something totally of their own making. They will use it if they need to – got no doubt whatsoever about that. Jarrett has approved the idea…and did so a long time ago. There were whispers of it during the 2008 campaign. McCain was so god-awful it never reached a serious consideration…but the plan was discussed. If needed – they were willing to go that route. It would be the ultimate use of the race card in the history of American politics. And…it would likely work if they got away with it.
Ulsterman: They would go that far? Risk something like that?
Insider: You don’t need to ask that question. Not after what we’ve discussed this past year. Not after what I’ve told you has proven out over and over again. So stop asking the fu—ing question. You need to accept the fact…if you haven’t done so yet – you need to accept the fact these people are playing for keeps. I told you – how many times? How many times have I said it? These are not Democrats. These folks are something else entirely. And they are willing to push the country – all of us, right against the fu—ing wall. Hard. I’m pushing back. Others are too. All of this is part of that effort. A small part, but an important one.
As with the Occupy movement, it appears as if the Obama administration executed a test-run of the plot, with a “shot being fired” at the White House. This would lend credibility when they choreographed the attempt for the masses.
As early as August 2011, WHI also predicted race riots coming in the summer of 2012. The use of the Trayvon Martin death and the subsequent incitements to violence by the media, Obama operatives, and useful idiots, followed by the subsequent threats by the NBPP of a coming “race war” appear to have been merely a sign of what’s to come.
Middle-class American citizens were shocked and appalled at the allegations, with many hoping they were not true. Some said they had harbored similar suspicions for quite some time, due to the many anomalies and inaccuracies emanating from the current operatives inhabiting the White House.
The DHS source claimed that campaign funds were being directly used to fund the incitements to violence and rioting that the Obama administration was seeking to spark.
“Using untracked campaign funds, they are paying people to infiltrate the various movements to cause physical destruction of property and disrupt commerce. That began last year, but has increased ten-fold already this year,” stated this source.
“He added that they are using some lower level DHS agents to make the payments under the context of tracking subversives, but they are the unwitting subversives.”
The police state is becoming more apparent everything single day. The government isn’t even being sly about it anymore. It is just out in the open now and most people just don’t care which is the scary thing.
Earlier this week, the federal government announced that the Air Force might be dispatching drones to a backyard near you. The stated purpose of these spies in the sky is to assist local police to find missing persons or kidnap victims, or to chase bad guys.
If the drone operator sees you doing anything of interest (Is your fertilizer for the roses or to fuel a bomb? Is that Sudafed for your cold or your meth habit? Are you smoking in front of your kids?), the feds say they may take a picture of you and keep it. The feds predict that they will dispatch or authorize about 30,000 of these unmanned aerial vehicles across America in the next 10 years. Meanwhile, more than 300 local and state police departments are awaiting federal permission to use the drones they already have purchased — usually with federal stimulus funds.
The government is out of control.
If the police use a drone without a warrant to see who or what is in your backyard or your bedroom, or if while looking for a missing child the drone takes a picture of you in your backyard or bedroom and the government keeps the picture, its use is unnatural and unconstitutional.
I say “unnatural” because we all have a natural right to privacy; it is a fundamental right that is inherent in our humanity. All of us have times of the day and moments in our behavior when we expect that no one — least of all the government — will be watching. When the government watches us during those times, it violates our natural right to privacy. It also violates our constitutional right to privacy. The Supreme Court has held consistently that numerous clauses in the Bill of Rights keep the government at bay without a warrant.
Even when we don’t have an expectation of privacy, we do have a right to be left alone. But merely watching us in public isn’t enough for the police, as many street corner cameras are equipped with listening devices and tiny megaphones. We can expect that these devices will soon bark commands: “Put down that BlackBerry.” “Look to your right before crossing.” “Don’t kiss her; a car is coming.” Actually, Big Brother is coming, and he’s not smiling.
Big Brother is watching from the skies, as well as the streets. This started when the Department of Defense decided to offer help to police — and they are prepared to accept. Never mind that the military may not lawfully operate within our borders, except in the case of rebellion, and then only when publicly authorized by the president. Never mind that the military may not lawfully be used for law enforcement, except in the case of disaster, and then only when publicly authorized by the president. And never mind that this use of drones by the Air Force was not the result of legislation debated and enacted by Congress, but was done under the authority of the president alone.
Add to all this the use of drones to kill people. President Obama has argued that he can use drones to kill Americans overseas, whose deaths he believes will keep us all safer, without any constitutional due process whatsoever. His attorney general has argued that the president’s careful consideration of each target and the narrow use of deadly drones are an adequate substitute for due process. Of course, no court has ever ruled that way. The president’s national security adviser has argued that the use of drones is humane since they are “surgical” and only kill their targets. Of course, that’s not true, but it misses the point. Without a declaration of war, the president can’t lawfully kill anyone, no matter how humane his killing.
How long will it be before the Air Force and the police adopt the unconstitutional arguments of the president’s wrongheaded advisers and use the drones not only to spy but also to kill Americans in America?
The whole reason we have a Bill of Rights is to assure that tyranny does not happen here, to guarantee that the government to which we have supposedly consented will leave us alone. Do you think the government accepts that? Would you feel safe with a drone in your backyard? Would you feel like you were in America?
