You’ve likely already heard about the terror arrests in NY.

Two men arrested in relation to an alleged terror plot in New York City were of Moroccan and Algerian descent, FOX News reported Thursday.
Moroccan Mohammad Mamdouh and Algerian Ahmed Serhani were arrested late Wednesday and were expected to be charged under the state’s terrorism laws

So if you read the Other McCain you would know who the suspects were and their cultural nationality. How about HotAir?

Two Americans of North African descent have been arrested, apparently on charges that they plotted a terrorist attack on at least one New York City synagogue:

Yup you know that if you read Hot Air, how about Pam Geller?

More Muslims planning to blow up Jewish houses of worship. The media describes them of “Algerian descent” — no mention of Islamic Jew-hatred and the motivation that drives this war on the West. The media dares not speak its name.

Not only does Pam inform us, but she hits the nail on the head. If your only source for this news was the AP report linked at Stacy’s site that is what you would have heard.

Authorities in NY have arrested a pair of men allegedly plotting a terror attack against a Synagogue in the city.

Go back to Stacy’s site and listen to the whole thing, You will notice that the names of the men and their nationality is never mentioned.

When listening to WCRN today while driving I noticed the same thing. I heard the CBS news report on the story, never once were the names of the suspect mentioned. That’s when I knew they were Muslims.

It’s the religious version of the “Name that Party” game.

Guys if you don’t want to actually tell us the news, please find another line of work.

…if he is clever enough to understand it.

The league has been running some real bush league ads against Brown trying to imply that he is in favor of poisoning children.

Brown has answered the absurd charges at this site saying in part:

Regulations and government overreach were the real issues at stake with this vote – not dirty air or sick children. It’s shocking that a supposedly non-partisan group like the League of Women Voters has decided to engage in this political demagoguery.

To a guy like Brown, the attacks by the League of Women voters must have been a shock, but I think they have done him a huge favor for three reasons.

#1. Not in our League

By attacking Brown the League which is known for sponsoring debates has given Brown not only an excuse to decline any debate sponsored by the League but to reject any debate with a member of the League on the panel.

Consider: Right now Scott Brown is the single most popular politician in Massachusetts and the major names running against him. Any potential opponent will need exposure to be competitive. By giving him an out from any debate the league is involved in he decreases the potential exposure for any Democratic opponent.

#2 The enemy of our enemy syndrome

The League of women voters has always been a liberal organization, by attacking Brown they increase his credibility with conservative groups at a time when he might be worried about a challenge from the right.

#3 Light Dawns on Marble Head

The league’s actions clearly demonstrate the futility of courting the media and “mainstream” groups. It is a lesson he may not understand but he needs to learn asap. Senator Brown you’re a nice guy but get this through your head:

No matter how many votes you give them, no matter many words you say or do. LIBERAL NGO’S AND THE MSM ARE NOT GOING TO SUPPORT YOU IN 2012.

Once you get this through your head, the rest is easy.

Of these lessons the 3rd is the most important for Senator Brown to learn, will he be wise enough to do so. That is the $64,000 question.

Today on Morning Joe at 6 a.m. and on the replay at 8 a.m. The Morning Joe crew went after Newt Gingrich, as a hypocrite, again repeating the liberal canard that the Clinton business was only about sex , on the set the “conservative” of the crowd was Mike Barnicle.

Today he went after Gingrich calling his candidacy as a “joke” and when given the task of “pitching” Gingrich just plain did not give one.

I like Barnicle a lot, he is a Fitchburg guy, and is the closest thing to what democrats used to be, basically a working class mindset who speaks common sense. As for Newt Gingrich, I’ve met him twice and seen him speak several times, he is a brilliant man, I like that he has converted to Catholicism, but he doesn’t even make my top 4 as a GOP presidential choice.

I’m not going to go into the Nixon comeback parallel or the fact that Americans love to forgive, but I would to point out an amazing irony on the set.

The Morning Joe crowd is unforgiving to Newt for his wrongs of 15 years ago (and they were wrongs) yet Mike Barnicle is an accepted and respected member of the journalistic group.

This is what Slate had to say about Mike last year when he was tapped to be part of Ken Burns 10th inning:

Was it some sort of subtextual commentary on the era of steroid cheats that Burns turned to Mike Barnicle to talk about the Red Sox? While we’re having history lessons: long ago, back when Roger Clemens was still pitching for Boston, Mike Barnicle was a columnist for the Boston Globe. Does anyone know why he is not a columnist for the Boston Globe anymore?

I wish that were just a rhetorical question. But since Mike Barnicle keeps showing up on people’s televisions and talking about stuff, apparently it isn’t. Mike Barnicle had to stop being a columnist for the Boston Globe because he got caught plagiarizing and fabricating, over and over again. And because he lied about it.

Mike Barnicle is a fraud and a liar. He didn’t even have the excuse of being in over his head and strung out on drugs, like Jayson Blair. He had a nice, easy columnist spot. He fabricated and plagiarized because he was lazy and dishonest, and because he had contempt for his $200,000-a-year job and his readers.

Don’t hold back Tom Scocca, tell us what you really think.

As I’ve already said, I’ve met Mike, I like Mike and I’m not looking to get him in trouble, but is it just me or is there a massive bit of hypocrisy on the part of the Morning Joe crowd, so willing to permanently toss Newt under the bus while Mike Barnicle sits on the set?

The final irony, Barnicle’s own scandal took place in 1998 around the same time of Newt’s.

I don’t think Newt has a prayer of winning the nomination but perhaps they should use the same measure for Gingrich’s candidacy for president as they use for Mike as a regular on the set.
