Day By Day by Chris MuirChris, it really shocks me that the Progressive LEFT would be blaming Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and violent rhetoric from the RIGHT for the heinous actions of Jared Loughner.
Well, not really.
When President Obama travels to Tucson tomorrow will he mention inflammatory political rhetoric?
Amy Chozick reports on the presidential race from Philadelphia.
Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?
That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
My bet is that he doesn’t.
Then, there are the issues of his terrorist friends and political mentors William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
The idea of a capital trial for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed of Al Qaeda and 9/11 infamy is pure folly. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said it best about the flap:
Returning some of the Guantanamo detainees to New York City for trial, specifically Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, has now brought us full circle â€” we have regressed to a pre-9/11 mentality with respect to Islamic extremist terrorism. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed should be treated like the war criminal he is and tried in a military court. He is not just another murderer, or even a mass murderer. He murdered as part of a declared war against us â€” America.
This is the same mistake we made with the 1993 terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center. We treated them like domestic criminals, when in fact they were terrorists. In the dangerous world we live in today, a nation unable to identify and properly define its enemies is a nation in danger.
Chris, I don’t think that even Chicago would want the trial or subsequent incarceration of these war criminals. But, a jury of Al Qaeda’s peers is a little harsh – unless you mean President Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright and domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
Maybe you have a point…….
The Day By Day Archive
From the folks at Power Line Blog about the relationship of Barack Obama, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.Jim Geraghty has more on this relationship, Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago and the apparent cover-up at the library of the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley offers his non-answer on whether the library, named after his father, should release the documents:
“Bill Ayersâ€”I’ve said thisâ€”his father was a great friend of my father,” the mayor said. “I’ll be very frank. Vietnam divided families, divided people. It was a terrible time of our country. People didn’t know one another. Since then, I’ll be very frank, [Ayers] has been in the forefront of a lot of education issues and helping us in public schools and things like that.”
The mayor expressed his frustrations with outside agitators like Kurtz.
“People keep trying to align himself with Barack Obama,” Daley said. “It’s really unfortunate. They’re friends. So what? People do make mistakes in the past. You move on. This is a new century, a new time. He reflects back and he’s been making a strong contribution to our community.” (emphasis Flap’s)
Well, how about for one, Bill Ayers is unrepentant for his radical bombing of government buildings. Remember what Ayers said: “I don’t regret setting bombs…. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
And, this: “Gulity as Sin, Free as a Bird, It’s a great country.”
Stay tuned as the inquiry into the Obama – Ayers relationship and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge is more thoroughly investigated.
From the folks at Power Line Blog about the relationship of Barack Obama, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
Flap has written about the association a number of times.
And, here is a list of 1968 Leftist radicals who are supporting Barack Obama.
Yet, Chris, Americans thus far have forgiven or at least turned their head the other way with Barack Obama’s association with:
- Jeremiah Wright – God Damn America preaching black liberation Pastor for over 20 years
- Michael Pfleger – Anti-American racist priest
- William Ayers – Far left Radical terrorist bomber
- Bernardine Dohrn – Far left Radical terrorist bomber
If Obama had been on the RIGHT, the MSM would have had him for lunch.
Is Flap missing something here?
The domestic and foreign terrorism connections that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have are stark and startling. For them “soft on terrorism” has reached the level of acceptance of their views as mainstream and for use as political advanatage/expedience.
- â€œThis is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, whoâ€™s a professor of English in Chicago, who I know and who I have not received an official endorsement from,â€ Obama said. â€œHeâ€™s not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis.â€
- â€œThe notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesnâ€™t make much sense.â€
But, the relationship of Obama with domestic terrorists/bombers Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dorn is deeper. Read about the details here. And, Billy Ayers is NOT a simple Professor of English and Obama is lying about their relationship.
Then, there is Hillary and Bill Clinton’s involvement with FALN.
The FALN clemencies provide a disturbing example of how the abuse or misuse of presidential prerogative, under the guise of policy, can be put in service of the personal and private activities of the president’s spouse — and beyond the reach of meaningful congressional oversight.
Well, See-Dubya writing over at Michelle Malkin’s blog has constructed a handy chart for us:
Senator Hillary Clinton on husband Bill’s Weather Underground clemencies: “I didn’t know.”
William Ayers, Tom Coburn and Barack ObamaRemember that Barack Obama compared Weather Underground Bomber William Ayers to Senator Tom Coburn. Now, questions are arising why Ayers and his radical bomber wife, Bernardine Dohrn were never prosecuted for their crimes (via Hugh Hewitt).
Answer: Deep Throat AKA FBI Agent Mark Felt
If everyone knows that William Ayers and his comrades in the Weather Underground were planning to set bombs to murder innocent people, why didnâ€™t they do time?
Because the investigation against them was muffed thanks to the illegal activities of the Washington Postâ€™s favorite Watergate answer man himself, Mark Felt â€” aka Deep Throat.
In 1972-73, FBI official Felt and his colleague Edward S. Miller authorized nine illegal break-ins at the homes of Weather Underground members. When the black bag jobs became public, the federal government decided it couldnâ€™t prosecute the alleged terrorists. Indicted during the Carter Administration, Felt and Miller were tried in 1980 in Washington. Ever the patriot, former President Nixon voluntarily testified on the defendantsâ€™ behalf, but they were convicted anyway and pardoned by President Reagan in March 1981.
More on Barack Obama’s friends William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn over at Power Line with audio of them continuing to rant against the United States.
Old Weather Underground radicals never fade away, now do they? They are either NEVER prosecuted or are PARDONED by Bill Clinton.
Now, will the press ask Barack Obama on why he has NOT repudiated his association with the bomb making LEFTIST radicals?
