Oklahoma City Marks 20th Anniversary of Bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building at Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
It is hard to believe it has been 20 years, April 19, 1995 …
The Oklahoma City bombing was a domestic terror attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Timothy McVeigh detonated an explosive-filled truck that he had parked in front of the Federal Building as McVeigh’s co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, had assisted in the bomb preparation. The Oklahoma bomb blast claimed 168 lives, including 19 children under the age of 6, and injured more than 680 people. It was the greatest and most destructive act of terrorism in the United States until September 11, 2011. McVeigh was executed by lethal injection in 2001. Nichols was convicted in 1997 of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and eight counts of involuntary manslaughter for killing federal law enforcement personnel. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole because the jury deadlocked on the death penalty.
Oklahomans and others gathered Sunday at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum for the 20th anniversary Remembrance Ceremony in honor of those who died as a result of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
Emotions overwhelmed Helena Garrett as she stood at a lectern near the reflecting pool at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and struggled to say her son’s name.
“My baby,” she said and paused, bowing her head and grasping the side of the podium when the emotions were too much, before continuing.
“Tevin D’Aundrae Garrett.”
Bound by a common loss, sons, daughters, parents, brothers, sisters and others, read the names Sunday of the 168 people who died as a result of the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building during a 20th anniversary Remembrance Ceremony.
Hundreds of people gathered where the building once stood, and many more watched from home, to honor those who died in one of the largest acts of domestic terrorism in the nation’s history. As they remembered, they also celebrated the city’s resiliency and response in the face of what was described as unspeakable horror.
In the minutes after the attack, the people of Oklahoma City did something that others watching from afar found hard to fathom, FBI Director James Comey said.
“You ran towards darkness,” he said. “You ran towards pain. You ran towards anger and destruction. You ran because these were your friends. You ran because they were your neighbors and your teammates and members of your congregation. You ran because that is what Oklahomans do for their family, and on this day, those people were family.”
Mary Nunes Missing Since 2004 from New Hampshire Finally Found Trying to Enter the United States … 50 Year Old Scott Kelley Arrested for Non-Custodial Kidnapping
19 year old Mary Nunes found after a decade …
Mary Nunes has been missing since November 2004 in New Hampshire when at the age of 8 years old, she was kidnapped and taken to Costa Rica by her step father Scott Kelley and mother amid a custody dispute in 1996. The girls mother claimed she did so because the father, who had full custody was abusive. However, the authorities never believed those claims and never filed any charges against the missing girls father. Mary Nunes had been missing more than a decade when authorities got a tip that Scott Kelly and Mary Nunes were attempting to gain passports to return to the United States. The authorities allowed them both to be issued temporary passports and when they arrives to the United States.
50 year old Scott Kelly was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia by US Marshall’s last Wednesday at 2PM. Kelly is currently in custody at a Clayton County jail and awaiting to be extradited to New Hampshire where he will face kidnapping charges of an 8 year old girl. Mary Nunes’ mother, Genevieve Kelley, had previously returned to the US in 2014 and turned herself in to the authorities. Genevieve Kelley remains on track for a May 8 trial after Judge Peter Bornstein on March 24 denied a motion to dismiss the state’s charge of custodial interference pending in Coos County.
According to a spokesperson with the U.S. Marshals, 50-year-old Scott Kelly has been wanted in New Hampshire since November 2004 when he was accused of the non-custodial kidnapping of Mary Nunes, who was 8-years-old at the time.
Police say that on April 13, Kelly and Nunes, now 19, went to the U.S. Consulate in Costa Rica to request passports to return the U.S. It was at this time that police say they discovered the warrant for Kelly and realized Nunes was reported missing.
Police say a temporary passport was issued for both Kelly and Nunes and they were allowed to return to the U.S. When they arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport around 1:40 p.m. Wednesday, police say Kelly was immediately arrested.
When they arrived in Atlanta on Wednesday, U.S. Marshals were waiting, and arrested Kelley.
“Nunes was interviewed to ensure her health and safety and was allowed to continue to her final destination. Kelley is currently being held at Cobb County Jail pending extradition to New Hampshire.”
Dr. Nunes made the following statement Wednesday: “We love Mary and are overjoyed that she is alive and back in the US. Our hearts and home are open to her, and we will do everything we can to insure she remains safe and healthy. We remain concerned about her emotional and physical well-being. We look forward to the day our family is finally reunited.”
Another Liberal Hypocrite … Former SNL Cast Member & Actor Dan Aykroyd Says “America is Flat-Out Gun Crazy” … Coming from Someone Who Played a Hitman in Movies
Hmm, so it’s okay for Dan Aykroyd to own and fire a fire arm, but its those other people that should not be allowed to.
Why can’t liberal actors just shut up and act? No one really cares what their political or social opinions are. Being that Dan Aykroyd is from Canada, he probably needs to pretty much shut up when it comes to making comments that “America is Flat-Out Gun Crazy”. During an interview with the HUFFPO, Dan Aykroyd then offered some less-lethal alternatives to guns like taser, sound system that you can use to disable someone, high-frequency generators and nets that you can fire and it completely closes over the top part of the body. All I can say is …
Jane Dan, you ignorant slut. What’s the matter, you forgot about the use of unlicensed nuclear accelerators (VIDEO)? Seeing that Dan Aykroyd appears to be US Constitutionally challenged we will just remind him that The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
In short he said, “America’s flat-out gun crazy. That’s it, man.”
While he quickly added that “of course, it’s guns in the wrong hands,” Aykroyd then offered some “less-lethal alternatives.”
“There’s a Taser, there’s a sound system that you can use to disable someone, there’s a high-frequency generator that you can use, there’s a net that you can fire and it completely closes over the top part of the body,” he said. “So why aren’t we looking into these alternatives?”
Aykroyd, who’s from Canada, said that in his country “at a certain point, you just let the guy go.” He added that “usually chases are called off once you get to 50 miles an hour up in a street there in Canada. You back off. You don’t chase them anymore.”
LIBERAL HYPOCRITE DOUBLE STANDARD …
Hmm, it would appear that Dan Aykroyd had no issue of participating and getting paid for being a hit man in the movie ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’ and partaking in thus “gun crazy” shooting scene. But of course, that’s different.
A new ISIS video has been released showing the mass murder of 30 or so Ethiopian Christians in Libya. The 29-minute video shows the ISIS terrorists holding two groups of captives, described in a text on the screen as “followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church”. Ethiopia condemned the reported killing of Ethiopian Christians captured in Libya as the Ethiopian Minster of Communications Redwan Hussein stated, We strongly condemn such atrocities, whether they are Ethiopians are not.” The video was similar to the one ISIS released in February showing the mass beheading of Egyptian Christian hostages. But ISIS is the JV as per Barack Obama and we are defeating them. Sure we are.
A shocking new video appearing to show at least 30 Christians being beheaded and shot by ISIS has been released.
The 29-minute video, titled ‘Until It Came To Them – Clear Evidence’, shows dozens of militants holding two separate groups captive in Libya.
At least 16 men, described by Islamic State as the ‘followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church’, are lined up in a desert area while 12 others are filmed being forced to walk down a beach.
Ethiopia was unable to confirm its citizens were killed in the footage but condemned the ‘atrocious act’, a government official said.
A video purporting to show the killing of Ethiopian Christians by Islamic State-affiliated militants in Libya has been released online.
The 29-minute video appears to show militants holding two groups of captives, one by an affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barka Province and the other by the Fazzan Province, an affiliate in the south.
A masked fighter wielding a pistol says Christians must convert to Islam or pay a special tax prescribed by the Quran, before the captives in the south are shown being shot dead and the captives in the east are beheaded on a beach.
In January, militants loyal to the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS and ISIL, claimed responsibility for an attack on the Corinthia hotel in the Libyan capital of Tripoli that left 10 people including an American and four other foreigners dead.
Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs
WHAT DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE AGAINST PEOPLE IN WHEEL CHAIRS?
First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?
Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.
Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.
In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.
“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”
The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.
ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton’s Mystery Machine Scooby Van Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Spot … But What Difference Does It Make?
ARE REAL AMERICANS ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOTS WITHOUT HANDICAPPED STICKERS … IF HILLARY WAS A REPUBLICAN THE MSM WOULD BE ASKING … WHY DOES HILLARY CLINTON THINK SO LITTLE OF THE HANDICAPPED?
Add another black mark to the Hillary Clinton roll out of her 2016 presidential run. This time it was in Council Bluffs, Iowa where Hillary’s Scooby Doo van parked in a handicapped parking spot. Remember, the rules really don’t apply to Democrat politicians, especially Hillary Clinton. So this is how she shows she is one of us? Do any of you think that there would not be a ticket on your vehicle if you had done the same? That’s because you are not entitled and above the law. How about a comment from Team Hillary where they they are asked whether they think its OK to park in a handicap spot and why they think so little of the handicapped that they would illegally park in a spot?
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.

Fouled Mouth ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Suspended for a Week After Berating Parking Lot Attendant After Car was Towed … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” (VIDEO)
ESPN SHOULD BE SO PROUD …
A foul-mouthed ESPN reporter Britt McHenry went off on a tirade as she recovered her car from an impound lot after her car had been towed. Personally, I can understand that some one is upset in dealing with a tow truck company and getting one’s car back because it is an ordeal and a pain in the butt; however, McHenry’s personal attack on the individual just doing her jon was completely uncalled for. Advanced Towing has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, but with that being said, McHenry did not have to take her attack out on the employee. The VIDEO, that went viral, showed Britt McHenry going off on the female attendant as she insulted and mocked the attendant’s job, education and physical appearance after her car was towed earlier this month in Arlington, Virginia. Among her insults were, “I’m in the news, sweetheart, I will f—ing sue this place.” … “I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey.” … refered to the attendant as a “college dropout.” … “Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” … and “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
ESPN has suspended Britt McHenry for a week. WOW, a week? That will teach her. The 28 year old Britt McHenry attended Stetson University in Deland, Florida and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University; however, even though she attended class, it appears that she learned nothing about having class. What is even more amazing is that McHenry was told that she was being videoed and that did not shut her up from embarrassing herself. As Britt McHenry continued her verbal assault on the woman and said, “Why, cause I have a brain and you don’t” all I could think of was I wish the female attendant had said back to her, you may have a brain but you don’t seem to have your car.
The sidelined reporter — who tweeted and then deleted that Advanced Towing was “corrupt” on April 6 — can be seen on security footage nastily explaining why she’s a more worthy human being.
“I’m on television, and you’re in a f—ing trailer, honey,” she later says, even referring to the attendant as a “college dropout.”
McHenry, 28, attended Stetson University in Deland, Fla., and received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
The edited clip plays like a highlight reel of jabs and insults as McHenry, who joined ESPN in March 2014, attacks the looks of her prey, who is off-camera.
“Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?” she asks.
But wait, there’s more. The reporter gets in a final dig before walking away: “Lose some weight, baby girl.”
McHenry apologized for her behavior Thursday after the video went viral.
“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things,” McHenry wrote on Twitter.
“As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake.
Taking the high road Britt, you mean like what you had previously asked others to do?
Britt McHenry, the foul-mouthed ESPN reporter who was suspended for her bullying tirade, urged her Facebook friends to be kind and compassionate — just days before she verbally attacked a Virginia parking lot attendee.
“Take the high road and be nice to people,” she posted on Facebook on March 29. “Amazing how a small kind gesture can go so far, yet similarly so can the impact of negative words. Don’t choose the latter.”
REALLY, THE ONLY REASON WHY PEOPLE ARE VOTING FOR HILLARY CLINTON IS BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN …
Just curious, would it be okay to say that you are voting for an individual because they were a man? And that being their only qualification? Face it America, Hillary Clinton after all her years in the public eye, after all her years in government as a US Senator and Secretary of State has accomplished nothing of accomplishment. In fact, the things she has done, like the Russian reset, Benghazi-gate and her private email server scandal have probably been more of a detriment than help.
Is America really going to vote an unqualified individual who cannot seem to tell the truth President of the United States just because she is a woman? Just how ignorant and foolish has this country become? When you think about the social experiment of voting in the first woman as president, just because she is a woman ask yourself … how did that social experiment work of voting for Barack Obama, the first black one? Enough said.
It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender.
Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.
“She’s a woman, and that’s literally all,” one female student told Campus Reform.
“Because it’s time we have a female president,” another woman said.

Outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Says of GOP Presidential Contenders, “I Think They’re all Losers.”
GOOD RIDDANCE HARRY REID …
Honestly, no one is going to miss this miserable man when he leaves the Senate. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood that the candidates running for president are all losers. What a miserable individual. It is exactly this type of crotchety, mean spirited behavior that was evident during his run as Senate Majority leader. What ever happened to liberal tolerance? As Taylor Swift sings, “Why do you have to be so mean?”
The Republican field for president in 2016 is full of “losers,” Harry Reid said in an interview that aired Wednesday.
The Senate minority leader, a boxer in his youth, delivered some spirited blows while talking with CNBC’s John Harwood, calling his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell “a lump of coal” and slamming alternative theories about how he sustained his eye injury.
Reid also said he doesn’t really care who wins the Republican nomination for president. “I think they’re all losers,” he said.
