Things you won’t see in the Lansing State Journal

…nor elsewhere in the statist media.

Jimmy Hoffa warming up the crowd for our president yesterday:

We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war.

President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.

To be clear, the LSJ, et. al. did report on the Detroit rally, they simply fail to mention Hoffa’s “incivlity.”

No one in the MSM seems to recall our president’s comments following the Tucson shootings:

But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

Of course, we can’t talk in a healing way to people whose motivation is asking the national government to live within its means. That’s crazy talk. As the Vice President has indicated, such people are terrorists – unworthy of civil discourse

Al-taqiyya

Brutally stabbed to death in their home by Islamic fanatics: Udi and Ruth Fogel, 36 and 35, and their children Yoav, 11, Elad, 4 and baby Hadas, 3 months.

In the land of Hamas this atrocity was celebrated by dancing in the street and the passing out of candy. One can understand a twisted mind. This is a twisted people.

In defense, Hamas invoked Al-taqiyya, Islamist’s standard operating procedure: Hamas Speaks

Constitutional duty

Harry Reid: “It Is My Constitutional Duty” to Spend Federal Money… “I Fight For It”

Yes he does. This is why we have to rally on Sunday to bring attention to the 10th Amendment: Harry Reid’s oath of office was like Faisal Shahzad’s oath of allegiance to the US when he was naturalized, “I did swear but I did not mean it.”

Faisal Shahzad is the guy who recently attempted to detonate a car bomb in New York’s Times Square. Harry Reid, in contrast, has aided and abetted the explosion of US debt and expansion of executive power which is a bigger threat to this country than anything Shahzad even contemplated.

Blame America

John Brennan says America is safer, but it’s because we are racists.

He should be fired, but the President would simply replace him with another idiot trained at the Neville Chamberlain School of Counterterrorism.

I found the “policies perceived as profiling” comment a good summary of the Administration’s attitude: It’s not whether there is actual profiling targeting luggage-less 20-something males named Abdulmutallab flying from Yemen with one-way tickets bought in cash and whose fathers have warned our State Department are al-Qaeda sympathizers – it’s whether “Islamic law students at NYU” feel there is.

This is not new. George Bush invited CAIR to the White House and tiptoed carefully around naming the enemy. He did not, however, make it explicit policy.

H/T Paladin

This is a little much…

…coming from the party of Harry “The War is lost” Reid, John “Marines are cold-blooded killers” Murtha, Barack “We must leave Iraq in 16 months” Obama, Nancy “Bush lied” Pelosi, and John “Cut and run” Kerry.

The Obama Administration says criticizing their policy of Mirandizing terrorists aids al-Qaeda. John Brennan, Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, writes:

Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda.
