Four Arrested in Plot to Bomb NYC Targets

Four Arrested in Plot to Bomb NYC Targets

Year-long surveillance, informant, pays off.

NEW YORK - Four men arrested after planting what they thought were explosives near a synagogue and community center and plotting to shoot down a military plane were bent on carrying out a jihad against America, authorities said Thursday. The suspects were arrested Wednesday night, shortly after planting a mock explosive device in the trunk of a car outside the Riverdale Temple and two mock bombs in the backseat of a car outside the Jewish Center, authorities said.

Police blocked their escape with an 18-wheel truck, smashing their tinted SUV windows and apprehending the unarmed suspects.

At a news conference outside the Bronx temple, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly quoted one of the men as saying, "If Jews were killed in this attack ... that would be all right."
Kelly said he believed the men knew each other through prison. They had long rap sheets for charges including drug possession and assault.

Authorities said the four men have long been under investigation and there was little danger they could actually have carried out their plan, NBC News' Pete Williams reported.

The True Believer
By Eric Hoffer

"Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both."


This sounds exactly like Maximum Zero and his Brown Shirts, the 9/11 'Truthers', those with Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Derangement Syndrome, Obama's ACORN Stormtroopers and vote cheaters, those in Congress and elsewhere wanting Bush 'war crimes' trials, those who still think racism is a problem in America (and who call any criticism of Obama 'racisms!') and the starry-eyed millions who worship Obama as the Messiah--and mean it.

"Unauthorized" Government Ineptitude

"Unauthorized" Government Ineptitude
By William Warren

First she defended it. Then she apologized for it.

Now she claims it was never authorized to begin with—and was sent out by some lackey employee.

For Homeland Security Advisor Janet Napolitano, the “rightwing extremism” report issued last month has been a constant drag on her brief tenure at her new post. And for good reason.
The so-called “report” warned of increased risk from “radicalized, rightwing extremists” including those who oppose abortion, those against illegal immigration, and –worst of all—disgruntled veterans. More ridiculous than the politically charged targets was the fact that the “report” pointed to no specific organizations and was based on no substantial evidence against the subversion it was allegedly reporting on.

"The wheels came off the wagon because the vetting process was not followed…The report is no longer out there. An employee sent it out without authorization."

Moreover, a “Domestic Extremist Lexicon” was also released by the Department of Homeland Security and then promptly retracted. It, too, was a “mistake.”

Lying and passing the blame seems to have become de rigeur among Democrats these days. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been caught in lie after lie with regards to her knowledge of waterboarding—and has conveniently blamed the whole mess on the “lying” CIA. And, of course, President Barack Obama has blaming Bush down to a fine science.

Notably enough, the extremism memo and lexicon aren’t the only documents to be retracted on the grounds that they were “unauthorized.” A letter from the Obama Administration was recently sent to the California state government threatening to withhold California’s stimulus money if a SEIU wage cut was not rescinded. Later, however, once the unique pay-to-play tie-in had been exposed, an Obama administration official claimed the letter was sent out “inadvertently.”

MUST READ: The President Who Hates His Country


In the last century, the impassioned words and actions of patriots like Winston Churchill – along with America’s heroic help and sacrifice – saved Europe. The eloquence and actions of “I’ve been to the mountaintop” Martin Luther King Jr. brought America to an unprecedented level of social justice.

The peerless oratory and tireless diplomacy of the man who would become Israel’s Foreign Minister, Abba Eban convinced the entire world that after the wanton murder of six-million Jews in the Holocaust its straggling survivors deserved their own state of Israel. The inspiring words and decisive actions of President Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War, tore down the Berlin Wall, and restored economic prosperity to America. The efforts of these towering figures resulted in a more highly-evolved world.

We have also seen the opposite in totalitarian leaders like Hitler, Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Mao, and Saddam Hussein, among others, who exploited their masses, destroyed their economies, brought havoc, turbulence, grief and massive death within and outside of their countries, and made the world a more dangerous and threatening place.

The one thing all of these virtuous and evil men had in common was love for their respective countries, in fact a burning passion that superseded all else. The virtuous believed in freedom and democracy. The evil believed in subjugation of their peoples and lifetime tenures for themselves in order to actualize their goals of conquering their eternal enemies – Americans and Jews.

Today, we have a new crop of inveterate America- and Jew-haters, among them the Marxist leader of Venezuela Hugo Chavez, Nicaragua’s president Daniel Ortega, Iran’s “death-to-America-and-Israel” study-in-abnormal-psychology Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the ever-sabotage-America and anti-Semitic “leaders” of the 22-Arab states that surround Israel.

I have either read about or observed firsthand all of these people. Yet in my decades of commenting on the political scene, I cannot recall a single leader of any country or regime who has ever spoken negatively of his country or tolerated others speaking ill of the land or the people he represented...until now.

Bizarre and, yes, repugnant as it is to our essentially centrist country, America now has a president who has broken that time-honored tradition. Barack Obama, on the campaign trail and as the leader of the free world is the first U.S. president to proclaim to anyone within earshot that he, like his wife, is not proud of his country, and is all-too-willing to offer serial apologies – for America! – to Americans and foreigners alike.


We also know that during his run for the presidency, Obama expressed sneering condescension towards all those bible-clasping, gun-owning yahoos who “cling” to those silly things, and that in Europe he consistently gave voice to America’s supposed “sins.” But all that pales in comparison to the clear contempt – looks more like hatred to me – that Obama feels for the United States of America and for its most revered founding document, the U.S. Constitution.
