A Venn Diagram Of Terrorist Watch Lists


Tamerlan was first placed on TIDE, a massive database controlled by the National Counterterrorism Center, after an FBI interview based on a tip from Russian authorities in 2011 that Tamerlan had become radicalized. The latest information about the size of TIDE's database is from 2008, when it contained more than 540,000 names representing about 450,000 real people (multiple spellings of names inflate the overall number).

Terrorist Screening Database

The next list Tamerlan found himself on, according to Hosenball, was the Terrorist Screening Database, a declassified version of TIDE with fewer details about individual suspects. According to the Washington Post, the Terrorist Screening Database contained more than 400,000 unique names as of 2009. Around the time Tamerlan was placed on this list, he was also placed on a list managed by the Homeland Security Department's Customs and Border Protection bureau, which flagged Tamerlan's visit to Russia in January 2012. Hosenball suspects that this didn't trigger an alarm because the "FBI had not identified him as a threat after the interview."

Selectee List

The Selectee List is significantly smaller than the previous two (14,000 names) and calls for mandatory secondary screening at airports. Tamerlan was not placed on this list, according to Hosenball.

No Fly List

Even smaller is the No Fly List, which, as of 2011, included about 10,000 people. According to NPR, the No Fly List is for passengers who authorities believe threaten the plane or could be "traveling somewhere to commit a terrorist act or went to a terrorist camp." No one is told whether they're on the No Fly List, so people don't typically find out until they arrive at the airport. By all accounts, Tamerlan was not on the No Fly List.

Disposition Matrix aka WH KILL LIST

This is the list you really don't want to be on. No one knows exactly how large the Disposition Matrix is, but it's the second iteration of the White House kill list and it "spells out the intelligence on targets and various strategies, including contingencies, for handling them," according to reports. For some, "handling" includes a lethal drone strike. Tamerlan is not believed to have been on the matrix.

You Won’t Believe What The Bible ACTUALLY Says About Abortion.

Jesus is the greatest abortionist of all time. Oh, don’t take MY word for it! Read the Bible, it’s all in there. God commands his followers to kill pregnant women all over the place! Did you think Noah’s Flood only killed adults? Don’t be ridiculous! There were plenty of children, newborns and innocent fetuses that got tossed in the dustbin of history so Noah and his family could start over.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Here we go, just another dirty godless liberal mocking the name of my Lord! How dare he?!” Well guess what, Bunky? How dare YOU? Yeah you, Mr. (or Mrs.) “I vote Republican because they protect life just like Jesus would except for the bombing of innocents by the tens of thousands, the death penalty, opposition to healthcare for all, a gun fetish to make Rambo blush and the hysterical belief that feeding poor children constitutes theft!”.

But other than those little details, you’re a Christian! And that makes you better than everyone else, right? You’re so much better, in fact, that you and your fellow Christians! have decided that you can tell the rest of us how to live our lives. Especially with regards to abortion. You’ve really got quite the hard-on for abortion. Why, you’re willing to shoot them up and set clinics on fire. Just like Jesus would!

But the reality is that the Bible is quite in favor of abortion. I’ll let Betty Bowers, America’s Best Christian explain it to you:

Skeleton of teenage girl confirms cannibalism at Jamestown colony.

Newly discovered human bones prove the first permanent British settlers in North America turned to cannibalism over the cruel winter of 1609-10, US researchers have said.

Scientists found unusual cuts consistent with butchering for meat on human bones dumped in a rubbish pit.

The four-century-old skull and tibia of a teenage girl in James Fort, Virginia, was excavated from the dump last year.

James Fort, founded in 1607, was the earliest part of the Jamestown colony.

"The evidence is absolutely consistent with dismemberment and de-fleshing of this body," said Doug Owsley, a forensic anthropologist at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.

Written documents had previously suggested the desperate colonists resorted to cannibalism - but the discovery of the 14-year-old girl's bones offer the first scientific proof.

Researchers fashioned a three-dimension replica of the girl's face

Plan B-One Step approved for use without a prescription for women 15 and older.

The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Plan B One-Step for women aged 15 and older without a prescription.

The decision, which was announced on Tuesday, was in regards to an amended application submitted by Teva Women's Health, Inc. The company first sought approval to market Plan B One-Step to all females of reproductive age, but changed their initial appeal for approval for those 15 and older.


Plan B-One Step does not stop pregnancy if a woman is already pregnant, nor has any scientific evidence shown that it will harm a fetus that already exists. The single-dose pill works best if taken within three days after sexual intercourse.

"Research has shown that access to emergency contraceptive products has the potential to further decrease the rate of unintended pregnancies in the United States," Dr. FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, said in a press release. "The data reviewed by the agency demonstrated that women 15 years of age and older were able to understand how Plan B One-Step works, how to use it properly, and that it does not prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease."

Ed Markey Wins Democratic Primary, Will Face Republican Gabriel Gomez in June.

Massachusetts is the gift that keeps on giving. First Elizabeth Warren, now Ed Markey. Here's to a Liberal Dem victory in June!

And a for Massachusetts, the most Liberal State in the Union!

A word about my personal philosophy.

It is anchored in optimism. It must be, for optimism brings with it hope, a future with a purpose, and therefore, a will to fight for a better world. Without this optimism, there is no reason to carry on.

If we think of the struggle as a climb up a mountain, then we must visualize a mountain with no top. We see a top, but when we finally reach it, the overcast rises and we find ourselves merely on a bluff. The mountain continues on up. Now we see the "real" top ahead of us, and strive for it, only to find we've reached another bluff, the top still above us.

And so it goes on, interminably.

Knowing that the mountain has no top, that it is a perpetual quest from plateau to plateau, the question arises, "Why the struggle, the conflict, the heartbreak, the danger, the sacrifice. Why the constant climb?" Our answer is the same as that which a real mountain climber gives when he is asked why he does what he does. "Because it's there." Because life is there ahead of you and either one tests oneself in its challenges or huddles in the valleys of a dreamless day-to-day existence whose only purpose is the preservation of a illusory security and safety.

The latter is what the vast majority of people choose to do, fearing the adventure into the unknown. Paradoxically, they give up the dream of what may lie ahead on the heighs of tomorrow for a perpetual nightmare - an endless succession of days fearing the loss of a tenuous security.

So THIS Is The Man Who Gets A Library & A Day Of Whitewashing Media Attention?


There are countless other photos far more disturbing that I chose not to post.

Remember, these individuals are being detained without any evidence or trial date.

And this doesn't even touch on the THOUSANDS of US Troops killed fighting our wars. Rest In Peace.

The Bush legacy was by far one of the darkest periods in US history.

Every mistake imaginable.

Shame on the Bush regime.

Shame on the media for playing along.


New $100 Bills Are Coming And This Is What They Look Like

The Federal Reserve Board announced on Wednesday that the new, redesigned US $100 bill would begin circulating on October 8, 2013.

The bill, whose design was originally released in 2010, now includes security features like a 3D security ribbon in order to thwart counterfeiters.

The new bill also includes a watermarked image of Benjamin Franklin, a security thread that glows pink under ultraviolet light, and raised printing on Franklin’s shoulder. There is also a color-shifting bell hidden in the image of the inkwell next to Franklin.

First Chevy Volt Electric Car Gets 450 MPG in New Jersey

Two-and-a-half years after Chevrolet delivered its first Volt electric car, its owner from New Jersey says the vehicle has gotten the equivalent of about 450 miles per gallon.

The Volt has an on-board gasoline generator that makes electricity when the plug-in charge runs out after about 36 miles, but Jeff Kaffee, a retired airline pilot, said he rarely drives more than that before he recharges.

Kaffee said he has had to fill up the generator only three times over 13,700 miles, with a total of 30.2 gallons of gas.

"The wave of the future is here," said Kaffee, who noted that he will probably buy his wife a Volt in another year or two.

Kaffee said he appreciates electric cars both because they have less of a negative impact on the environment than traditional cars and because they don't funnel American dollars into unstable, oil-producing regimes.
