U.S. troops thwart a horrific plan to turn a new Baghdad girls school into a sprawling structural bomb. Under construction, large explosives were built into the walls, floors and ceilings.


Keep in mind that this is the work of people who American Leftists say are no more dangerous than “radical” American Christians. Actual quote of Tokyo Rosie: “I’m not afraid of Osama”. Well the little girls of Iraq are.

U.S. soldiers find girls’ school rigged with explosives
• Military suspects al Qaeda was behind the plot
• Plot was “sophisticated and premeditated attempt to inflict massive casualties”

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) May 4, 2007 — American soldiers discovered a girls school being built north of Baghdad had become an explosives-rigged “death trap,” the U.S. military said Thursday.

The plot at the Huda Girls’ school in Tarmiya was a “sophisticated and premeditated attempt to inflict massive casualties on our most innocent victims,” military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said.

Soldiers found rounds and explosives in what the military is calling a sophisticated “attempt to inflict massive casualties.”

The military suspects the plot was the work of al Qaeda, because of its nature and sophistication, Caldwell said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

The plot was uncovered Saturday, when troopers in the Salaheddin province found detonating wire across the street from the school. They picked up the wire and followed its trail, which led to the school. Once inside, they found an explosive-filled propane tank buried beneath the floor. There were artillery shells built into the ceiling and floor, and another propane tank was found, the military said.

Rounds were placed in front of each classroom and at the end of the hallway. Artillery shells were built into the ceiling.

The wire was concealed with mortar and concrete, and the propane tanks had been covered with brick and hidden underneath the floor, according to a military statement. Soldiers were able to clear the building.

“It was truly just an incredibly ugly, dirty kind of vicious killing that would have gone on here,” Caldwell said.

Iraqi contractors were responsible for building the school, which was intended to bring in hundreds of girls.

The wire ran along the wall of the hall. Wiring led to a stairwell, where a large propane tank was buried.

“Given the care and work put into emplacing this IED, it is likely it had been planned for a long time” and it is thought that “the IED was not intended to be set off until the building was occupied,” the military said.

Authorities intend to question the Iraqis involved in the school’s construction.

The Democrats’ unilateral war policy

The Democrats’ unilateral war policy

By Ray Robison

It wasn’t too long ago that the Bush Administration suffered the barbs of Democrat leaders who decried US “unilateralism” in Iraq. As recently as April 23, 2007 Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) “painted the president’s war policy as unilateral.”

But now the Democrats’ move to pull US Forces from Iraq would constitute a unilateral abandonment, and override the will of the vaunted international community. All of a sudden it is the Democrats who are behaving like unilateral cowboys and breaking away from the accepted international framework.
In June of 2004, the US presence in Iraq was approved by the United Nations in an overwhelming multilateral fashion. This CNN report explained the views of the “international community” about US forces remaining in Iraq. By unanimous vote fifteen members of the UN Security Council approved the resolution that says the multinational force will serve “at the request of the incoming interim government of Iraq” and that the force can be asked to leave at anytime.
That’s right, the “occupation” of Iraq ended almost three years ago when it became a UN mandate to stabilize and provide security for Iraq.
Remember how apoplectic the Democrat leadership became because France, Germany, and Russia opposed the US war against Saddam Hussein and President Bush went “cowboy” – or “went it alone”? Well I guess the Democrats don’t need FGR approval after all, since all three approved the measure that the Democrats now seek to unilaterally overturn:

“Germany supports this resolution as an important step towards the restoration of full sovereignty of the Iraqi interim government in all relevant areas and towards Iraqi ownership,” said Germany’s U.N. ambassador, Gunter Pleuger.

French Ambassador Jean-Marc de La Sabliere noted that the recent negotiations were “demanding,” but that the world body considered France’s concerns.

“Our main concern has been taken into account, and this is why we think it is a good resolution,” he said.

Putin called the resolution a “major step forward.”
UN leader Kofi Anon chimed in:

“I believe it is a genuine expression of the will of the international community … to help the Iraqi people take charge of their own political destiny — in peace and freedom — under a sovereign government.”

The fledgling Iraqi government weighed in when its’ Foreign Minister said of the resolution that “We need these forces. It is an Iraqi need, more than an American or coalition need. The consequences would be catastrophic.” He also reminded the council that Iraq had been liberated from Saddam. Considering that all fifteen members of the Security Council authorized US forces to stay and support the Iraqi government, the concept of Iraqi liberation was finally recognized by action at the UN, an act that the Democrats now want to unilaterally abandon.
Since 2004, a second resolution (1723) has been passed with unanimous approval again that says the Iraqi government should continue to transition to a democratic government under the protection of the Multi-National Forces (MNF) until it can provide for its’ own security. While Russia and France made clear that they expected an end point for US forces to withdrawal, even they did not specify a timetable.
The measure also recognized progress in Iraq which Democrat leadership and their media accomplices have continuously refused to concede:

Welcoming the progress made to date in the training and equipping of Iraqi security forces as well as in the transfer of security responsibilities to those forces in Muthanna and Dhi Qar provinces and looking forward to the continuation of that process during 2007″

Anybody expect to hear Congressman Murtha “supporting the troops” by touting their success? Me neither.
The 2006 measure goes where the Democrats will not by recognizing that Iraq is under attack by terrorists and that it is the responsibility of all nations to fight terrorism:

Reaffirming that acts of terrorism must not be allowed to disrupt Iraq’s political and economic transition, and further reaffirming the obligations of Member States under resolution 1618 (2005) of 4 August 2005 and other relevant resolutions and international conventions with respect, inter alia, to terrorist activities in and from Iraq or against its citizens,

Contrast that to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who still calls Iraq a “distraction” from the fight against terrorism.
A bizarre condition now exists in which the United Nations provides a more reasonable and realistic assessment of the conditions in Iraq than our own Democratic Party leadership. The American Democratic Party has now moved to the left of France and Russia.
Who is unilateral now?

Al Sharpton on “Jewing the Numbers”

Al Sharpton on “Jewing the Numbers”

by Bill Levinson

We previously reported how Barack Obama stood arm in arm with the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton at a meeting of Sharpton’s hate organization, the National Action Network. We would like to share the “response” we received from the Obama campaign regarding our complaints about his open association with a prominent hatemonger and a hate group that has been directly involved in at least one fatal incident of racist and anti-Semitic violence (the arson of Freddy’s Fashion Mart).

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Senator Barack Obama and his candidacy for President. Senator Obama welcomes an open dialogue about America’s future, and hopes for the widest possible participation in a great nationwide discussion.

Hearing and exploring different positions and ways of thinking furthers this discussion. It challenges our reasoning, sharpens our analysis of issues, and leads to new solutions. We appreciate having the benefit of your perspective.

One of Senator Obama’s mentors was the late Senator Paul Simon, a man of great ability and integrity. He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.

Thank you again for contacting Senator Obama.

“He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.” We don’t think Obama has gotten off to a very good start, since he doubtlessly knew how offensive the following image would be to white people (especially Jews) and also to every single decent Afro-American. The way Al Sharpton’s tongue is hanging out, he must be fantasizing about something like burning a store that is owned by a Caucasian (preferably a Jew, e.g. Freddy’s Fashion Mart) or reenacting the Night of the Broken Glass in a place like Crown Heights.

Why should this image offend decent Afro-Americans, even though Sharpton rarely directs hate speech against members of his own race? (”Never” is not accurate, since Sharpton called fellow African-American David Dinkins a “Negro whore turning tricks in City Hall,” and “Negro” was not exactly the word he used.) Racist demagogues appeal universally to the absolute dregs of their respective socities. By standing arm in arm with Al Sharpton, Barack Obama (and Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, who also accepted his hate group’s invitation) are effectively equating Black voters to the class of white people whose votes the Klan’s David Duke or the White Aryan Resistance’s Tom Metzger can deliver: the class commonly known as “white trash.” The only Black people whose votes Sharpton can deliver are the kind who, if they were white, would be wearing sheets and hoods while firebombing Black churches, murdering civil rights workers, and lynching Negroes.

Characterization of the National Action Network as a hate group is no exaggeration, noting its conduct at Freddy’s Fashion Mart. If the races of the participants were reversed, one would have a gang of Klansmen marching around a Black-owned business while calling a white security guard a “Negro lover” (”Negro” is not exactly the word they use), screaming about “Black interlopers” and “Negroes” (again, not the exact word), threatening to burn the building, and then having one of their participants follow through on the threat.

Here is the latest beauty from Al Sharpton: a YouTube video in which he says,

So are they going to keep Jewing numbers up and down until they can try to get two guys because they wanted school [unintelligible] they can do it…

“To Jew someone down” is a highly offensive anti-Semitic slur, which Jews like as much as Romany appreciate the phrase “gyp someone,” or as much as people from Wales like the term “welsh on a bet.” Nonetheless, Barack Obama’s people claim,

He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.

Then we and the Obama campaign must agree to disagree on this issue, because we find being called a “cracker,” “white interloper,” “bloodsucking Jew,” and “diamond merchant” by the individual with whom Obama seems to be having such a good time highly disagreeable, and the same applies to Obama’s association with an individual who talks about “Jewing numbers up and down.”

Sharpton: “White folks was in caves while we was building empires … We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”


After weeks of increasingly violent rhetoric, one of the protesters, Roland Smith, took Mr. Sharpton’s words about ousting the “white interloper” to heart. He ran into the store shouting, “It’s on!” He shot and wounded three whites and a Pakistani, whom he apparently mistook for a Jew. Then he set the fire, which killed five Hispanics, one Guyanese and one African-American–a security guard whom protesters had taunted as a “cracker lover.” Smith then fatally shot himself.

Barack Hussein, how does your friend’s commentary on “white folks in caves” and “Greek homos” tie in with “He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own?”

The ‘Fifth Columnization’ of America

The ‘Fifth Columnization’ of America
By Frank Salvato
May 4, 2007

The Progressive-Left’s American Fifth Column is most often epitomized by the militant, bullhorn toting activist who, when not examined thoroughly, seems to be advocating for one “civil right” or another. We see them at the pro-illegal immigration protests, the anti-gun protests, the anti-war protests, anywhere a group of people can lay blame at the feet of government and especially the Bush Administration. But the American Fifth Column’s tentacles spread much wider and delve much deeper into our history and our society and recent events illustrate this as fact, rather than fiction.

The American Fifth Column is born out of Socialist/Communist ideology where the citizenry grows dependent on the government while the government increasingly legislates itself more control over the people.

In the perfect Fifth Column world, everyone is equal and possesses an artificially elevated sense of self-worth, the competitive spirit is equalized through taxes and legislated oversight of private business and societal boundaries — including boundaries in speech and action — are enforced through a shadow set of laws known as political correctness, a set of laws that undermine the authority of the Constitution.

The American Fifth Column is embodied by the politically correct multicultural one-world movement and encompasses all of the Progressive-Left buzz word initiatives, such as “diversity,” “public good,” “it takes a village,” “global village” and so on.

Through the artificial equalization of our society the Fifth Column strives to achieve the Balkanization of the United States through the celebration of diversity while inducing the surrender of individual choice within those Balkanized communities to governmental entities; divide and conquer.

When successful, the efforts of the Progressive-Left’s American Fifth Column achieve the neutering of the American spirit, the end of our celebrated melting pot where pride in individuality, whether ethnic, religious or social, gave way only to pride of country; e pluribus unim. It transforms pioneers into cogs in a machine for the “greater good” and feminizes our society, this feminization giving way to a society of defenseless victims who are completely reliant on government for their survival.

Recent events have driven me to opine about this societal cancer infiltrating our country under the guise of “progressive ideology,” among them the Virginia Tech shootings.

As the mainstream media reported how Cho Seung-Hui reloaded his two weapons multiple times during his murderous rampage one question kept emerging as the only question that needed to be asked in the nauseatingly repetitive after-the-fact analysis: While he was reloading, why didn’t someone pick up a chair and beat the hell out of him?

I’ll admit that Hui’s first shooting of the day involved too few to invoke a mass response and I give credit to the resident assistant who came to the first female victim’s defense. But when he stormed the more populated classrooms of the lecture hall why didn’t someone stand-up to this cretin? Why was a septuagenarian holocaust and Soviet Bloc survivor the only one to stand up to Hui, effectively saying, “Not while I can do something about it!”

It can be argued that the lack of response from the majority of people in Hui’s gun sights were the products of over forty years of the Fifth Column’s artificially induced sense of self-importance and societal feminization. They had all been transformed into defenseless victims incapable of thinking about confrontation; incapable of understanding that there was an alternative to slaughter and that alternative was standing up to Hui the aggressor.

Imagine if after Hui started shooting his weapons that thirty people started throwing everything that they could find at him in unison while charging the sorry excuse for a human being. Logic mandates that Hui wouldn’t have fell so many victims because he wouldn’t have had free reign to wreck havoc. Evidence to this fact is in that all of the students in 76-year old Professor Liviu Librescu’s classroom lived.

So, why did Hui’s victims and potential victims cower in fear as Hui methodically chose his victims for slaughter? Because our society has been conditioned through the propaganda of the Fifth Column to believe that violence and/or violent acts, in all cases, are unacceptable.

The American Fifth Column’s relentless and visionless opposition to the military efforts in Iraq stand as another glaring example.

I stand as one of the few voices who refuses to back down in the face of the Fifth Column’s relentless insistence that weapons of mass destruction was the onus for President Bush’s decision to assemble a coalition of willing nations to topple Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein. This insistence, for the overwhelming part, is in error and it has been mischaracterized unmercifully in order to advance their politically correct, one-world efforts to equalize the United States on the world stage.

Ingenuous people will admit that after being reminded of the reasons given for action in Iraq — Saddam Hussein’s genocide of his own people and his blatant violation of the cease-fire agreement that allowed him to live at the end of the Gulf War — it would have been unthinkable to have allowed this madman to go unchallenged.

Yet, the American Fifth Column denounces the Bush Administration, condemns the military actions taking place on behalf of and authorized by a freely elected Iraqi government and insists on arguing the least tangible of all the points given for military intervention in Iraq, WMD, even though regime change in Iraq was mandated by Congress as US policy under the Clinton Administration.

Question for the Progressive-Left Fifth Column: When did genocide become acceptable to you?

Perhaps the most disturbing avenue the Fifth Column has cultivated is within our education system. From grade school through college, the education establishment, bolstered by the political activists and social engineers of the agenda-driven National Education Association, has the government mandated opportunity to poison the minds of our children, to brainwash our country’s youth.

Nary a day goes by when there isn’t a story espousing the political indoctrination by the likes of a Ward Churchill or a Jay Bennish, “teachers” — and I use the word loosely — who impose their political beliefs on their students while usurping the parental birthright to bequeath familial core values to their children.

School systems lorded over by busy-body Progressive-Leftists increasingly employ text books that rewrite history at our nation’s expense. Parents are kept from attaining full access to programs mandated by our schools that promote questionable adult content in the form of what is termed sex education under the heading of “diversity” and “cultural awareness.” And some public school systems are promoting the “understanding” of Islam by forcing students to become “Muslim for a day,” in direct contradiction of the Progressive-Left’s belief in separation of church and state.

As the Fifth Column Progressive-Leftists make inroads into our society, our education system and our state and federal governments, the overwhelming majority of Conservative lawmakers can’t find their spines long enough to demand action against elected officials who have certainly become nothing less than enemies of the State.

Not one Conservative lawmaker — in leadership or otherwise — has called for investigations into whether or not treason charges should be brought against or at least resignations be extracted from:

— House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: For her non-authorized and unconstitutional contact with the leader of a State sponsor of terrorism in a time of war in direct violation of the Logan Act. And for then declaring that she was “too busy” to meet with US General David Petraeus when he came to Washington to brief Congress on the current situation on the ground in Iraq.

— House Whip Steny Hoyer: For his contact with leadership of the terrorist organization The Muslim Brotherhood, a radical group who actively works to promote the creation of a global Islamic Caliphate as it aids and abets terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda, Hezbollah and Hamas, among others.

— Representative John Murtha for blatantly lying to the American people about not receiving a briefing from General Petraeus when Murtha received a personal briefing via telephone from the General for almost 30 minutes

— Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: For his declaration “The war is lost,” a statement that most certainly aided and abetted the propaganda campaign of terrorist organizations with which the United States is currently at war.

While the Fifth Column chalks up victory after victory, inching further and further toward controlling not only the House and Senate but the White House and Supreme Court as well, conservative lawmakers can’t even find the outrage to charge treason and demand resignations when elected Fifth Columnists are successfully aiding our enemy, steering our country into the abyss of military defeat and toward the human indignity that is Socialism.

But perhaps the most blame for the mess we’re in lies with the American people, specifically the conservatives among us. While the insanity of the third party route and the casting of protest votes is incredibly clear to those who understand the threat of the Fifth Column, those pale in comparison to the most damaging shortcomings of the conservative movement: personal inaction and abdication of responsibility.

Today’s conservatives — especially today’s Republican Party (and there is a difference) — are very good at talking the talk but they are incredibly bad at walking the walk. While they extol the greatness of Ronald Reagan they repeatedly violate Reagan’s Rule not to air party problems in public so that the opposition can benefit from that knowledge.

So too are they delinquent in actually practicing what they preach.

How many of you have taken pen to paper and written a soldier serving in Iraq?

How many have sent a care package to afford one of them a little piece of home?

How many of you have actually written to your elected officials expressing your dismay or congratulating them on a job well done?

How many of you have advanced financial support — be it $1 or $1,000 — to the new media outlets that you patronize and who have without fail carried the water to the elephant while the mainstream media has served its big money special interest donors in the defeat of America?

How many of you have given of yourselves to promote the fact-based education of those around you so that our country would be a more educated and thus a better place to live?

What have you done to make sure there is an American Heritage to pass on to your children and your children’s children?

The time is shortly after 9:28am ET. The date is September 11, 2001. You are on-board Flight 93 and the al Qaeda hijackers have just made their move to commandeer the aircraft. After a few cell phone calls you come to understand that the World Trade Center is for all practical purposes gone and that the Pentagon has been attacked, all through the use of suicide missions that piloted aircraft as weapons into their targets.

Question: Do you have the courage, do you have the conviction, do you have what it takes to charge the cockpit, to confront the hijackers, knowing full well that you, in all probability, are going to die? Or are you one of the many who cowered in the back of the plane waiting to be slaughtered.

Hint: If you answered in the negative to any of the above questions, get to the back of the plane. Some of us have real work to do in order to save this country.
