Boston tragedy raises questions of media bias, spiritual condition of US

Boston tragedy raises questions of media bias, spiritual condition of US
As the authorities untangle the horror of the 2013 Boston Massacre, we want to first reach out to the families who are touched in any way by this terrible terrorist event.  May the peace of the one true YHVH God be upon them and the healing, lovingkindness, grace and spirit of Jesus Christ envelop them that they might know His presence and His salvation. The bombings occurred on the celebration of Patriot's Day (marking the beginning of the American Revolutionary War that started in Lexington, Ma)--originally April 19, but celebrated on the third Monday of April. The mainstream media is trying to associate the bombings with American patriots--right wing extremists. But look again...
Yahoo News wrote of the extremist uprisings that have occurred in America during the third week in April--1993 when under Bill Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno's orders, the FBI attacked cultist David Koresh's Waco, Texas compound; 1995 Oklahoma City bombing; 1999 Columbine; 2007 Virginia Tech. Time Washington correspondent Alex Altman tweeted that Patriot's Day has significance to the "militia movement." Despite the "Let's do all we can to pin this on right wing, Christian-oriented, extremists" attitude of the news media, there is an entire other track of investigation that is ongoing in Boston, according to news sources.
The New York Post reports that police have taken a 20 year old Saudi national into custody and have raided his home in nearby Revere, Ma. The Post reports that the man smelled of gunpowder when he was apprehended and was asking if people died and if there was a second bomb. AP is reporting that FBI searched a Boston suburban apartment, but gave no details. The Post says the Revere bomb squad was called in while the Saudi national's apartment was searched. The UK Daily Mail reports that police are also searching for a "dark skinned or black male" who may be a foreign national based on his accent. The FBI held a news conference this morning. Nothing new, except they are hunting worldwide.
Besides the obvious and tremendous media bias against conservatives, the "stupid" remark of the day also comes from the leftist ranks--Homosexual Democratic former Congressman Barney Frank, who sang the praises of expansive government being the hero of the attack, said, "No tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover." Remember too, that the Senate is considering a gun disarmament bill to conduct extensive background checks on law abiding citizens who want to purchase a gun. Perhaps an amendment to the bill should come today--background checks on people of a certain religion or ethnic background that openly conducts violence against the United States and Israel.
Of Babylon, which behaved in Biblical times much like America behaves today, the Lord said in Jeremiah 51:14, "Surely, I will fill thee with men, as with locusts,; and they shall lift up a battle cry against thee." Judgment comes as a result of disobedience to God. Catastrophe often comes on the heels of man's lack of common sense. America has an abundance of both disobedience to God and a lack of common sense these days.  
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
