    In February radical Islamist cleric Anjem Choundary urged his followers to use their welfare checks to fund the jihad. Now this… Records show the Boston Marathon bombers may have used their EBT cards to fund their terror spree that left 4 dead and 260 injured. The Boston Herald reported, via FrontPage Magazine: A mountain of new welfare records shows numerous EBT card cash withdrawals made by the Tsarnaev family, but so far there is no information about how terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev and others may have spent the money. The EBT receipts were handed over by the state to the House...

    Thanks to the Boston Herald, Americans are learning about the cornucopia of benefits enjoyed by the Tsarnaev family as "asylum" seekers in the United States, and the information is enough to make many taxpayers' blood boil.  Chris Cassidy writes: The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance - a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned."The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning," said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative...

    BOSTON —State lawmakers have launched an investigation into whether the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings improperly received public benefits. The House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight is reviewing hundreds of documents collected from state agencies that may have provided benefits to the suspects or their families since 2002. Sources who have seen the 500 pages of documents sent to the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight told News Center 5’s Janet Wu that the Tsarnaev family -- including the parents of the two bombing suspects, the two suspects themselves, their sisters, the widow of the suspect killed...

    CBS News reported last night that investigators believe that the unemployed Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have financed his terrorist plot through the sale of marijuana — an interesting occupation for a fanatical Muslim.  The composition of the bomb has come into clearer focus as well.  The triggering device came from a remote-control car, and the fed still think the gunpowder may have come from fireworks. Most interesting, though, is the acknowledgment that the Tsarnaevs only had one firearm on them during their gunfight with police: The search through landfills should remind us that bombers need quite a bit of practice in...

    The Brothers Tsarnaev, alleged terrorists behind the Boston Marathon bombing, collected some amount of state and, possibly, federal welfare benefits. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife, and daughter collected welfare until 2012, according to Massachusetts state officials. The exact amounts the brothers received is unknown, however, because Gov. Deval Patrick's administration is refusing to release information regarding their case. State agencies “flatly refused” to provide information regarding the taxpayer-funded lifestyle of the 26-year-old man and his accused accomplice brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the Boston Herald reports. The Brothers Tsarnaev seem to have been only marginally attached to the labor market. It is...

    We actually have two major welfare stories today. The first is about the Boston bombers, who, it turns out were among those immigrants we’re always chided not to notice: They were on welfare. As good Americans we’re supposed to pretend that immigrants (I’m married to a legal immigrant, by the way, so no, Grover Norquist, I’m not “anti-immigrant”) don’t come here to get on welfare. Even though millions of immigrants do come here, legally or otherwise, and then get on welfare. Like the Tsarnaevs. Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was...
