"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Former CNN News Writer Suggests Christmas Bomber was a Republican Plot

Mike Malloy, a Left wing talk radio host and former CNN news writer (1984 - 1987), recently suggested that the Underwear/Christmas bomber was not an al Qaeda plot, but a plot hatched by the Republican Party.

According to Tim Graham of newsbusters.org (himself citing Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer) Malloy had this to say about the attempted terrorist attack:

"Now, the inquiry, the questions are being raised as to whether or not this is not a deliberate attempt to embarrass... ah, that's not quite a strong enough word, but let's start there, embarrass the Obama Administration - that there are forces at work in this country, and I believe this as surely as I put on my right shoe before my left - that there are forces alive who are very active, very wealthy in this country, at work in this country that want Obama to fail no matter what and the idea of killing 200 to 300 people on a jetliner in order to make the point is nothing. It means nothing.

"We kill that many in a week in our adventures around the world in places where we're bombing where we shouldn't even be. So, apparently, there's some investigation, I don't know who's going to do the investigating, lot of questions to be answered.

"My gut feeling is this was deliberate, this was deliberately done in order to put the Obama Administration in such a vice grip, that it's impossible to get anything done, to raise so much fear, this is what Republicans do, this is what they do..."

Hmm. A fear-mongering radio host claiming that fear-mongering Republicans are secretly trying to discredit Obama by killing 300 people in Detroit and blaming it all on innocent terrorist groups...? There are a lot of layers of hypocrisy here-- or is it literary irony?

Not that this paranoid idiocy needs to be discredited, but does Malloy mean to suggest that the White House itself is in on this conspiracy-- or are they just too dumb to see this "Republican plot" of his? I mean, even Obama (eventually) claimed that the Nigerian bomber is an associate of al Qaeda. I guess the administration is just too incompetent to know any better--unlike crackerjack reporter-wanna-be Mike Malloy.

It gives me a great feeling that CNN saw fit to employ this guy for three or so years.

  1. There's an old rule of thumb in the stock market that the market has finally bottomed when the financial pain is so great that you can read about it on the front page of the New York Times.

    I don't know whether that's true or not, but I think it's a sign of approaching peak desperation of the Democrat party when President Arrogance chooses to agree with an American sentiment in opposition to the actions of the people he hired to do his bidding.

    When Obama contemplates the political expediency of placing the protection of Americans above the perceived duty of America to apologise to terrorists, I think I am watching desperation hit the fan.

    Wait until Malloy sees what this winter's heating bills will do to cap and tax.
