This is just unbelievable. Some days I wonder to myself what the job of our local reporters here in Maine truly is!
Anyway, last December 2008 Amber Cummings in front of her 9 year old daughter pulled a gun and shot her husband, James Cummings, dead. It should have ended there with Amber’s arrest, but it didn’t. Nope. Amber killed her husband and then went to a neighbor’s house to call the police on herself. The police did not arrest her. Instead, they hung around the house for 2-3 days doing forensics and the locals got suspicious because no arrests were being made. Hell, I remember Mike Violette, who is the right winger on the Morning Show on 560 WGAN, say one day that the reason why Amber hasn’t been arrested is because she’s a woman. All fingers were pointing to Amber and how ‘evil’ she was and then….in February 2009, Amber is finally arrested, but it’s only after ‘someone’ (her defense attorney/the FBI/the Police?) posts an FBI document on WikiLeaks showing how Amber’s husband had radioactive materials in his possession at the time of his murder. The Bangor Daily News is the only newspaper in the country to report on this document and how in addition to the radioactive materials found at this house, James Cummings also the instructions on how to make a dirty bomb. Amber then confesses that her husband would often mix chemicals in the kitchen sink from time to time.
James Cummings was a wealthy trust-funder from Texas (born in California) who was a neo-Nazi white supremacist who despised President Obama and who furnished his house here in Maine with Adolph Hitler’s personal belongings and had huge Nazi flags everywhere throughout it. The man was dangerous if you ask me. In fact, I like to think of Amber Cummings as a hero now, because I think she thwarted an attack on our president and our nation’s citizens! She shouldn’t be charged with murder. She should be given the Medal of Freedom for crying out loud!
Here’s the interview Rachel Maddow did last night with the Bureau Chief of the Bangor Daily News on her show:
Notice how the The Chief basically says, “Oh, this happens all the time. Lots of Maine families have guns and explosives in their homes here in Maine. Nothing to see here, Rachel. Just go back to worrying about the financial sector. Thanks for playing!”. And notice how he acts like no one in Maine is talking about how one of our citizens was plotting a dirty bomb attack on our president and/or our citizens! Of course, we’re talking about it…..it’s just that…..the MSM isn’t listening nor do they want to go down the scary avenue of homegrown/whitebread terrorism! Had James Cummings been a brown skinned Muslim, you can bet your sweet bippy the MSM here and nationwide would have been all over the story! Oh, but James was a white man…..a deranged right winger.
ONE KEY POINT: The Bangor Daily News is full of right wingers, so much so, they love, love, love Sen. Susan Collins and refuse most days (especially over the past 8 years) to report the truth about her, her life, and her voting record. Collins voted 88% of the time in favor of George Bush’s economic policies and is one of many Senators who should be blamed for our current financial mess, oh but the BDN would report how fabulous she is! Spit.
The MSM here in Maine has basically squashed this story because they know how big it truly is. James Cummings was a wealthy Tim McVeigh and the question I have is: WHY DID CUMMINGS COME TO MAINE FROM TEXAS IN 2007 IN THE FIRST PLACE? WAS HE SENT HERE BY OTHERS TO DO A JOB? IS HE PART OF A LARGE NETWORK OF NEO-NAZIS IN OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW WHO ARE PLANNING & PLOTTING TERRORIST ATTACKS? OR IS HE A LONE MENTALLY DERANGED WOLF? AND IF HE WAS PART OF A NATIONWIDE NETWORK, WAS HE THE ONE FINANCING IT?
All good questions, but as you can see in Rachel Maddow’s interview above, we will never know the answers to these questions because the MSM here in Maine and across this nation refuse to ask the tough questions! Rachel did, however, and you can tell Mr. Bureau Chief didn’t like it. Well fuck off asshole! Your job is to push a story like this to protect the citizens for crying out loud!
Thank you Rachel for covering it. I see the Huffington Post has also grabbed this story too. Excellent. If a dirty bomb attack in our nation occurs at some point and it’s found to have been done by a neo-Nazi who had access to large amounts of cash, I hope the MSM remembers James Cummings and those of us here in Maine who wanted a larger investigation done before an attack occurred!
