On the day of the Boston Marathon bombing, there was talk of a suspect, then person of interest – Abdul Rahman Ali al-Harbi. Now, that Saudi man is no longer on considered as a potential bomber, and has apparently been deported. His departure is markedly like how the Bin Laden family members were removed from U.S. soil shortly after the attacks on 9/11. Jim Robbins at rare.us drew attention to this, and the following video offered by Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit.
This administration seems to be more concerned with staying in the good graces of Saudi Arabia, instead of finding out the truth about what happened on Monday. They have the advantage of not having to battle with many of the members of the media over issues like this, as they have long ago abandoned their role as watch-dogs over government. However, it has been reported by Walid Shoebat that this “innocent Saudi” apparently comes from a clan with many Al Qaeda members. By his count, there are no less than 11 active or detained known terrorists in the Harbi clan. Given the past history of Saudi Arabia protecting its own illustrated by Shoebat, even if it would be found later that this man actually did have a hand in the attack, it’s unlikely he will ever face justice on U.S. soil – unless he happens to be an innocent by-stander once again.
The Richmond Tea Party is suing the city of Richmond after they were charged $10,000 to hold three rallies, while occupiers have been allowed to camp out indefintely in the same public plaza. The Republic reports:
The Richmond tea party is demanding a refund of about $10,000 from the city, claiming it unfairly charged them for rallies while allowing the Occupy protesters to use the same space for several weeks for free.
The political organization is sending the city an invoice for the charges incurred for three rallies held in Kanawha Plaza over the past three years. The Occupy protesters have been camped in the plaza since Oct. 15.
Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens says it’s not fair that her group had to pay fees for permits, portable toilets, police presence and emergency personnel. The group also had to purchase a $1 million insurance policy.
The Richmond Tea Party sent their letter in late October. On November 14th the City of Richmond sent the RTC a letter in return informing them that they were being audited. Here is the letter, obtained by Right Side News:
Does this seem like coincidence? Do you think the occupiers in their tent cities will be receiving a similar letter in the near future? Spread the word about this outrage. Call or contact Cynthia Carr, Field Auditor and express your disgust at this obvious act of intimidation using government resources. Repost this letter and links to blogs that mention it. This intimidation and unfair treatment of peaceful, law-abiding voters must not stand.
Well, the Occupy Wall Street Crowd just gets better and better every day. Public nudity, unsanitary conditions, insane “demands”…there is just no end to ridiculousness and disrespectfulness of this “movement”. Now they’ve defaced a 9/11 Memorial statue (via Gateway Pundit). Nothing says ‘reasonable’ like a complete disregard for a national tragedy in which nearly 3,000 innocent people lost their lives. Stay classy, OWS!
