Rachel Maddow witnesses the Maine media blackout on the James Cummings story

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!

Anywho…

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.

Unfreakingbelievable!

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!

  1. ok.. wow.

    first off, it is so weird to hear Rachel Maddow talk about Belfast Maine (which I go to like almost every day). Its also funny that she had to explain where it was, like no one knows anything about Maine, but thats another story..

    and thank god she actually said “bangor” right instead of saying “bangER” like a lot of people who arent from Maine do.

    I’m really shocked this hasnt been bigger news. This guy was a nazi, hated Obama, and had the mats for a dirty bomb in his basement.. isnt that big news???

  2. Rachel,
    I’m so thankful that you had the guts and the right moral to publish this much needed information. This should have been on EVERY broadcasting network in the US.

  3. Kay here are some other reich-wing terror attacks the bush gobernment either hid from view or screwed up the investigation so we still do not know who the real perpetrator is;

    The anthrax killer.

    The bush lead DOJ tried right before ush left office to pin the crime on a person whith out very good evidence.

    The far-right “Patriot” who constructed a sodium cyanide bomb capable of killing hundreds.

    …….. never reported nationally, and for some reason the terror alert never raised, I wonder why?

    The Alabama militiamen who plotted to go on an anti-Latino killing rampage.

    …….. never reported nationally, and for some reason the terror alert never raised, I wonder why?

    The ex-Army Ranger who planned an anti-abortion killing spree.

    …….. never reported nationally even though it vcontains shades of both Timmy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph, and for some reason the terror alert never raised, I wonder why?

    The young skinheads who wanted to kill 107 black people and cap it off with Barack Obama.

    Damn you’d a thunk they were all al Qaeda sympathizers, given the way Frank Gaffeny LIED on “Hardball” claiming Iraq helped McVeigh bomb the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma city, April 1995.

    Funny the FBI and DOJ have never ever made that claim, but reich-wing neo-cons are still trying to divert attention from the fact it is reigh-wing extremists fueled by the hate speech of Rush, Hannity, Palin, Coulter, O’Rielly, Savage, Ingram, Beck who are acting that speech out.

  4. This is sad, one might expect this type mentality during the apartheid era prior to 1965 in the U.S.A.

    Thank God most Americans are nice, generous and God fearing.

    The famous quote “Can’t we all get along?” Can’t we?

  5. This mentality is sad Ameen and it’s being exposed once again thanks to the zany white men of our country who think their shit and actions don’t stink.

    We will never be able to get along as a nation if we have these neo-Nazi, white supremacist whack jobs in it, unfortunately.

  6. It’s all about who controls the information flow in any society, as any totalitarian monopolist will tell you. The Communists. Al Qaeda. The Nazis. The Vatican during the Dark Ages. Baghdad Bob. Rupert Murdoch and his legions of right-wing producers, editors and pundits. The far-right neo-con branch of the Republican Party.

    For instance, in mid-December 2001 CNN ran a bottom-screen news blurb stating that the FBI was conducting 15,000+ investigations into terrorist mailings, just a few months after the initial right-wing lethal anthrax terrorist mailing that targeted two sitting Democratic Party senators.

    So, there had already been 14,999+ copycat non-lethal terrorist mailings by mid-December 2001, but this CNN news blurb was the only news media report I’ve ever seen over the past 7 1/2 years giving an amount to the large number of nationwide terrorist mailings, making one wonder where this total stands today. Furthermore, anecdotal evidence, as well as information gleaned from the internet, indicates that over 99 percent of these terrorist mailings have been directed at liberal and progressive individuals and organizations.

    But as we’ve all noticed over the past eight years, the “liberal-biased” (or so I’ve been told) news media tends to quash any news that casts a bad light on conservatives, primarily because any bad news about conservatives would tend to hurt the electoral ambitions of conservatives, and impede their totalitarian monopolistic push for a “permanent Republican majority.” Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. And definitely un-American and anti-patriotic.

    Fortunately, someone in the Obama administration apparently has taken notice and has re-prioritized our federal law enforcement agencies into keeping a more watchful eye on these right-wing domestic terrorists, while de-prioritizing the Bush Era priority (starting with Ashcroft) of going after prostitutes, pornographers and druggies (who are hardly a threat to our freedoms and our national security).

    Reportedly the head freeper at Free Republic noticed this shift and waned his commenters to stop talking about, or implying, the assassination of President Barack Obama when commenting. Unfortunately, the right-wing domestic terrorist underground no doubt will continue with their hate rhetoric in an effort to sabotage our democracy, nor will increased FBI scrutiny of wingnuts stop someone from sprinkling non-lethal powder into an envelope and mailing it off to some liberal or progressive individual or organization, in an attempt to terrorize a fellow American citizen into submission.

    Where conservatives are concerned, some things never change, with those conservatives with the most totalitarian, monopolistic mindset never changing at all. And only total transparency may help, with our federal agencies, under President Barack Obama, releasing in a timely fashion all the data our federal government has on right-wing domestic terrorist activity, along with any arrests or convictions that have occurred. I personally believe that we are experiencing right-wing terrorist attacks on a monthly basis of epidemic proportions, but “the authorities” are keeping this under wraps. A free society, however, cannot last long if vital information keeps being withheld from We The People. All I can say is thank God (or whomever) for the Internet and thanks to all patriotic U.S. citizens like those at White Noise Insanity for their efforts to keep the citizenry informed.

  7. “Anyway, last December 2008 Amber Cummings in front of her 9 year old daughter pulled a gun and shot her husband, James Cummings, dead.”

    When I read this, and after hearing Rachel Maddow report that Amber Cummings stated that her husband had mentally, physically and sexually abused her for years, I wondered whether James Cummings had been sexually abusing his 9-year-old daughter, too, also probably for years, until finally Amber Cummings snapped, had had enough, decided she had to do something to protect her 9-year-old daughter (if not herself) and killed her husband in front of their 9-year-old daughter.

    Of course, with the Bush-packed Justice Department (and FBI) now in charge and seemingly intent on covering for the right-wingers, including the most insane ones, we will probably hear little to nothing further about this case.

    Holy cow. This goes along with the fact it was through an NIE report that there were 72-73 al-Qaida cells in America. Did the MSM pick up on it and alert the citizens? Nope! Silence.

    Great comments Oracle. Thanks so much. ;-)
