I have asked numerous times in articles on this blog site: Whose side are we on?

     Subject: On Monday, April 22nd, 2013, Miranda Rights were given to Boston Bombing suspect, Dzokhar Tsarnaev, at the hospital by a federal magistrate,  interrupting a lawful interrogation by FBI agents.

     So what’s so wrong with that?

     There’s much more to the story.

     First, folks should understand how, when and why Miranda is applied prior or during an interrogation. The Miranda warnings are for the purpose of admitting confessions or admissions into court proceedings at a future time.  It assures the court that his/her statements were made voluntarily and knowing he was advised of his rights to silence.

     Miranda warnings and admissions have no bearing on any other evidence pertaining to a suspects trial, be it physical evidence, witness evidence or circumstantial evidence. It only applies to self-incriminating statements…and subsequent evidence that are the fruits of those admissions.

     Meanwhile, because of the on-going war on terror, the law provides for a “public safety exception” to the Miranda requirements if it is intended to glean intelligence information regarding terror associates and future terror operations.

     This rule allowed federal investigators (FBI) to question Tsarnaev during a window of forty-eight hours.  The purpose of questioning Tsarnaev was not so much to obtain a confession, but to probe his head for anything he knew about terror networks and on-going plans.   In other words, to save lives.

     Indeed, the FBI was taking advantage of this legal rule and was not only questioning Tsarnaev at the hospital, they were obtaining valuable information – information that only the terrorist would know, information that would possible save lives in other planned terror attacks. In truth, a plethora of information was being obtained about their motives, their bomb-making devices and more, to and including their original plans to perpetrate bombings at a 4th of July event. Intelligence was being gathered!

      Only sixteen hours into the forty-eight hour window – and to the surprise of the FBI who (incredulously) had not been notified – in walked a federal magistrate, a representative of Eric Holder’s U.S. Attorney’s Office and a federal public defender. To the shock of FBI agents, Tsarnaev was thereby recited his Miranda warnings which, in the presence of a free defense lawyer, put the brakes on the interrogation. It cut the opportunity window of the “public safety exception” from 48 hours to 16 hours. Our chief law enforcement officer, the Attorney General, made this happen.

     Eric Holder, most likely at the behest of the president, made sure no more information about Islamist terror activities would be obtained – legally – by the FBI.

     So, again I ask, whose side are we on?

     Even if any admissions by Tsarnaev would be declared inadmissible, the evidence associating him with the bombings and the murder of the M.I.T. police officer were so overwhelming, admissions would be unnecessary. What was necessary, was reaping any and all information Tsarnaev could tell them about Islamist/Terror networks and future terror operations. That’s called “in the interest of national security.” The government, under Eric Holder, on behalf of Barack Obama, put a stop to that.

     This never ceases to amaze. Our federal investigative agents are now under orders to cease referring to Islam when teaching, learning, discussing anything to do with terrorism.

     Islamists have perpetrated more than 20,000 acts of deadly terror around the world in the last twelve years. And we’re supposed to disassociate Islam from terrorism? Huh?

     The Fort Hood shooting by an Islamist terrorists – who was promoted to Major by our Politically Correct government officials – is deemed by the Obama administration as “workplace violence” despite the fact that he was screaming Allah Akbar when firing his gun at forty-one innocent people, killing thirteen. And with scores of witNess testimony, he is still not tried after 3 1/2 years?

     Rather than capture and/or arrest Islamists who are thought to be associated with terrorism, and then questioning them for intel, our administration is targeting these people for drone strikes, i.e., murder in foreign counties where we are not at war. Why?

     This could be a very long article. But you get the message.

          The more dots we connect and the more information we learn, the question should be shouted from the rooftops:

     Whose side are we on?

    Just prior to the second word war the Prime Minister of Britain, Neville Chamberlin, did everything he could to appease and cozy up to Hitler and Italy, thinking by doing so they would play nice and not attack his country. We all know how well that worked out as Hitler ignored Chamberlin and attacked Britain.
    That’s exactly whats happening now. Our president does all he can to deflect the evil intentions of islam and provides cover for them by not acting on our behalf whenever they commit another atrocity. His “lets not jump to conclusions” whenever a muslim is involved is wearing thin and this country better wake up and not follow Chamberlin’s example of appeasement before we find ourselves in a crisis we cant get out of.
    Obama was making all kinds of threats against the bomber’s in the Boston massacre until it was found that they were muslims, whereupon, we have heard nothing more from him. If it had been a white hate group he would still be blustering with outrage.
    Young people wake up. The future of your country is at stake.

    Excellent article, Marshall. This administration has bungled or been corrupt in everything it’s touched: Fast N Furious gunrunning to Mexico drug dealers, resulting in murder, The Pigford Farmers GiveAway, Obamacare, $17 trillion plus debt, Benghazi abandonment of 4 Americans who’re murdered by Muslims, The Boston Bombings, War on Libya without Congressional approval, Trying to take away our 2nd Amendment rights, Serial lying to American citizens & the world, and on and on it goes…

    Where is Congress on these issues?
    They were elected on a grass roots basis to maintain our government on a status quo
    basis. Live, liberty and a pursuit of happiness. Free from outside danger and from within our government.

    We have a person that was born and raised in an Islamic extremist environment in an area of the world that has the more Islamic terrorist than anywhere in the world, (Born
    in is questionable) .

    Still he was elected the President of the USA. go figure. Is there any wonder he protects these horrible people and these horrendous acts of violence against Americans.

  8. Christopher Jones May 7, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

    All we have heard from the lame stream media is that these boys are home grown terrorists, filled with rage. Baloney. Obama and his evil minions once again are covering for RADICAL Islam. Maybe all muslims aren’t terrorists, and maybe there are “moderate” muslims, but a terrorist is a terrorist, and a muslim terrorist is a muslim terrorist. The lame stream was rocket fast to call this terrorism by right wing extremists, but when that turned out to be so much garbage, they have been jumping through hoops to make this all about “rage” and “anger”, but the muslim connection is hard to find. And Barry Hussein Sotero is complicit in hiding the connection.

    Standing by now for the spin on BenGhazi and how to cover the lies of Hil LIAR y.

    Just a reminder, Obama was elected and re-elected president of the United States. We don’t hate wolves for killing prey, for that is what wolves do. Don’t hate the president for his attacks on the United States for that is what he was raised to do.

    Rather, hate the ignorant idiots who voted for him. I suspect few of them ever read his books. Or the Constitution, for that matter.

    • Christopher Jones May 7, 2013 at 11:47 pm #

      Excellent point Howard.

    • Just Me May 8, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

      With all due respect, Howard, wolves killing prey is different than the President of the United States ridiculing and harming his fellow Americans and the country and Constitution he was elected to uphold and protect. Obama makes calculated decisions to hurt our country economically and in foreign and domestic policy.
      Wolves have an innate animal instinct to hunt, kill and eat.
      Obama’s actions are all conscious choices made to bring down a country and the people he despises. Those who voted for Obama do so because they agree with his anti-American actions, gain something from them or are so invested in their support of him that they do not feel they can back down now.
      No, we should not hate animals who have animal instincts but we are permitted to despise those who vow to uphold the Constitution and protect our country and then do everything they can to harm America and its people.

      • Jan van Waardenburg May 17, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

        The wolves are angels compared to Obama for the very reason you explained.
        Even Nixon’s deeds pale, compared what Obama is and will do to America

    Again this treasonous dictator in the white house protects the enemy. Just as he did at Benghazi.We cannot afford another 3 1/2 years of this guy. I have written to my congressman to no avail, both parties.

    Oliver North has a new book out “Hero’s Proven” it is about the past and present to 2031– it is super – makes you really think what we are being really set up for== I am also sitting here watching a copy of “Lawrence of Arabia” on my big screen it is super— tribal wars back then and still are== maybe we should arm them all and let them end the problem — to the last man!!!

    I wish there was something concrete I could put my finger out to support my feelings that there is something sinister behind those scowling eyes. My brother and I battle it out over his deeds, actions, appointments and political correctness support. He says I am a racist, but when I confront him with actions such as the premature Mirandizing of the muslim terrorist which without doubt emanated from the top, he deflects, and has no logical reply. I hope and pray Benghazi is his downfall, for surely the pack of misstatements and prevarications came & started from the top!!!

    • Christopher Jones May 8, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

      Your observations, RIco, are ANYTHING but racist. When someone uses that label to counter facts, it is a con. Ignore it.
      Today will be one of the most important days in our history. If the media continues to ignore Benghazi, then they will ignore anything and everything that this administration does.
      If racism exists, we will see it if the media ignores the truth.

  13. Ron Kenerly May 8, 2013 at 3:55 am #

    100% of this fiasco falls directly on the responsibility of the US Congress and Senate. Most of these two political bodies are fully aware of the issues surrounding this administration and they have not taken any action whatsoever to stop it. Even yet today they are still spouting politically correct statements rather than calling the appropriate people outright liars and it sure seem obvious too that they are only willing to skirt around the edges of these serious matters rather than doing what is required to stop future occurrences of deceit by the administration. Obama is like a wayward child, he will take every liberty he can until he is called down and stopped. I feel that rather than continue to blame Obama who does not care what the American public desires, we need to focus the wrath of the American public on these elected officials who are definitely negating their responsibilities.

    You are correct in being disgusted with this process. Unfortunately it crosses party lines. I put most of the blame on the criminal justice sysytem. Federal, state and local. In my view it lacks credibility, reality and common sense and only occasionally serves justice. The only way to reverse it is to completely over haul it. This will not be done because those that created it are still in charge and will not allow it since it still serves their purpose.

    After all are not we welcoming them ?????????????????????

    How stupid can we be???????


  18. Howard B. May 9, 2013 at 7:54 pm #

    To JUST ME. You give BHO more credit than I do when you refer to “his fellow Americans.” He has no sense of being American. I think of him as a totally narcissistic bought and paid for individual following his instincts. In that regard he is akin to a wolf or any other predatory animal. My condemnation of those who voted for him is to the point. I think of them as ignorant, both of his past (What little we can find), his writings, and his associates past and present. I think they, the voters, are also ignorant of the founding and the history of this country. Ignorance is merely a lack of knowledge while stupidity is ignorance compounded by a lack of effort to overcome it. Anybody who would vote for an unknown with no record of achievements and known dubious associates, anti-American by action, is by any definition, stupid. As a result of the stupidity of a sufficient number of voters, we are now living in a morally and economically bankrupt police state. Freedom has gone out the window. I finally suggest to those ill advised voters, when the state has used up all the money, the welfare folk will be among the first marched off to the gas chambers. They are proven useless and the only ones to survive will be the slaves who know how to work and are physically able.

    Barry Hussein Obama was elected in 2008 on the promise to make “fundamental change”… and his “party-label-loyalist” followers gushed their approval… without ever bothering to ask for an in-depth analysis of exactly what he meant by… “Change”.

    It’s Now Clear… that Barry is focused on dismantling the greatest nation in world history, and with the aid of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates that are here now (C.A.I.R.) on the Frequent Visitor LIsts To The White House!!! (See: Steve Emerson’s IPT Report…”Red Carpet To The White House. SO, why isn’t our U.S. Congress raising hell about that? Anyone??? – reb
