The police discovered a car bomb in a smoking Nissan Pathfinder in the heart of Times Square, prompting the evacuation of thousands of tourists and theatergoers from the area on a warm and busy Saturday evening.
There was no explosion.
“It appears to be a car bomb left in a Pathfinder between Seventh and Eighth” Avenues on 45th Street, said Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman.
The device, he said, contained “explosive elements” that included “propane tanks, some kind of powder, gasoline and a timing device.”
“This is very much an active investigation,” he said.
Mr. Browne, speaking shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, said that no one was in custody. “We haven’t identified any kind of a motive,” he said. “It appears to be a car bomb, but we haven’t attached a motive to it.”
Mr. Browne said the police were checking security cameras after reports that someone had fled from the car.
A federal official said that domestic security officials had been informed that the event did not appear to be a terrorist threat. The official referred all requests for additional information to New York City police.
Wow… thanks to some friends who are Boyz in Illinois for this gem. This video is from back in 2006 on a scandal about not only Charlie Crist, but also Mark Foley and others. And who is Jason Wetherington? From the Boyz’ post:
The GOP has been protecting Charlie Crist for years. Watch the video above from 2006.
It’s from before Crist ran for Governor, when the Mark Foley scandal was cresting. In this report, it says conservative Christian groups were part of the conspiracy to protect Crist, because Crist was willing to make anti-gay remarks and push anti-gay policy…so long as he got to date 21-year-old men, be as hypocritical as possible, and remain as orange as he wanna be.
We talk repeatedly about Democrats knowing who all the gay Republicans are — including the three in Illinois’ Congressional delegation, Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, and others at large (and in charge). Democrats blackmail these closet cases into backing bad legislation, trading their submission for secret-keeping.
The British long blamed the Revolutionary War on these clergymen, but this part of our history just proves exactly how religion served such an important part of this country’s founding. These brave clergymen were also members of the regimental Army and fought hard for this country, to be wrested from British rule, knowing that Christianity was based on the relationship between God and individual men; not the collective.
“Social Justice” was/is merely a tool of socialist Marxism, which our Founding Fathers wanted no part of. It’s what set us apart from the Monarchy and socialist Europe.

It’s not as simple as it sounds. In fact, a co-worker of mine who is from Puerto Rico says she bets money that this will never pass. She said they’ve been trying this for eons and the vote has always been “no.” But, one thing she didn’t know (and neither did I) until today was what the ballot question would be; it’s not “Do you want to become a state?” anymore – it’s more nefarious than that. The manner of question does, indeed, dictate a pre-determined answer desired by the one posing the question. This technique is called many things, but ethical is not one of them. It is underhanded at the very least.
I’m going to show this video to my friend to see if she’s ever even heard of the Puerto Rican Progressive political movement and their platform before. I think she’s probably only known about the “yes/no” statehood votes before. We’ll see. If they opt for something like the “Tennessee Plan,” the outcome could be deleterious than the PR voters think.
Yesterday Beck hit it out with the park regarding the left’s lack of balance when reporting on the pro-illegal immigration rallies and the tea parties. We now have race pimp Al Sharpton involved, comparisons of the AZ law’s advocates to Nazis, Bill Clinton’s pseudo-defense of the WTO anarchists vs. his treatment of tea partiers, and the list just goes on and on.
I, like Glenn, wonder why so much fuss is being made about what’s going on in AZ when government officials in Illinois are asking for the National Guard to come help fight crime in Chicago. Which police state does the left prefer? Only the one that doesn’t sully their political points? Why is no one else talking about how bad the crime rate is in Chicago? Well, they don’t talk about Phoenix’s much either, but why is enforcing one more popular than the other? In both cases the majority of the offenders are minorities, so why is one more acceptable than the other? Why is one effort to enforce laws at the state level a RAAAAACCIST thing, yet the other is a TRUE “police state,” calling for military to perform local law enforcement duties?
