Iraq violence falls to four-year low

But according to the Democrats the surge has failed.

US - Obama sees dead people in audience

You can't make this stuff up.

"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong."


And as Powerline points out, Obama paints our brave men and women as only the Democrats know how - as victims.

Iran withheld nuclear secrets from UN

Now there's a surprise.

Six-year-olds sexually abused by UN

The Left's favorite go to organization.

UK - Exeter bomb suspect 'was Islamic convert'

Here's an interesting bit of the story.

"Mr Melville said: “Our investigations so far indicate Reilly, who has a history of mental illness, had adopted the Islamic faith.

“We believe, despite his weak and vulnerable state, he was preyed upon, radicalised and taken advantage of.” "


It wasn't despite his state, it was because of his mental state. We've seen this sort of thing in Iraq, where al Qaeda have resorted to mentally ill people due to a shortage of "true believers".

This case raises a lot of serious questions as reported by the daily Mail.

"The Muslim convert held after a nailbomb restaurant attack had been under surveillance by the security services, it was claimed last night.

Counter-terrorist officers suspected mentally-ill Nicky Reilly had forged links with known Islamic extremists at an internet cafe near his home."


So, just like the 7/7 Muslim bombers, he slipped through the net.

Where did he become radicalized and who recruited him?

"Neighbours said Reilly often held meetings at a halal shop and cafe, and a fish and chip shop, both 100 yards from his home.

Bradley Kinsman, 22, said: 'He started hanging out with some Muslims. They were always there talking.

'The halal shop is open until 2am and we'd see Nicky coming and going and being picked up in cars until the early hours.' "

Iraq - “Al-Qaeda Is Limping, Its Leaders Flee Mosul”

More progress.

US - Muslim school officials attack news crew

They don't like being exposed.

UK - Insulting a uniformed soldier to be outlawed

Britain finally getting a pair?

"Discriminating against British servicemen and women wearing their uniform in public will become a criminal offence under Government proposals outlined yesterday. "

UK - Afghan hijacker found working at Heathrow

But of course, this is Londonistan after all.

"The 34-year-old was one of nine men who hijacked an airliner in Afghanistan in 2000 before landing in Britain and threatening to kill all 160 passengers unless they were granted asylum.

The gang were jailed, but cleared on appeal and freed to live comfortable lives on benefits worth £150,000 a year."


That'll teach them and send a strong message to all would be hijackers - don't mess with Britain or you'll get a comfortable life here.

US - Obama & Farrakhan Shared the Cover

of Wright's Trumpet Mag. Be sure and follow the links.

Afghanistan - Terrorists feeling the squeeze

More good news. Note how al Qaeda are leaving Iraq for Afghanistan where they are being killed or captured.

UK - Teachers drop the Holocaust

to avoid offending Muslims.

But what exactly are the teachers afraid of?

The researchers gave the example of a secondary school in an unnamed northern city, which dropped the Holocaust as a subject for GCSE coursework.

The report said teachers feared confronting 'anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils'.

It added: "In another department, the Holocaust was taught despite anti-Semitic sentiment among some pupils.


Mmm. Now where would these Muslim children learn that?

"But the same department deliberately avoided teaching the Crusades at Key Stage 3 (11- to 14-year-olds) because their balanced treatment of the topic would have challenged what was taught in some local mosques."


Do tell.

Iran - Obama flip flops

Just like John Kerry, Obama is a flip flopper.

Obama's own website refutes Obama's own words.

Iraq - Mahdi Army surrenders in Baghdad

More signs of success in Iraq.

I love the way the media portray it though.

"Followers of rebel cleric Muqtada al Sadr agreed late Friday to allow Iraqi security forces to enter all of Baghdad's Sadr City and to arrest anyone found with heavy weapons in a surprising capitulation that seemed likely to be hailed as a major victory for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki."


As if they had a choice.

US - Obama: the US has "57 states"

The left wing media would have a field day if a Republican said this.

Iraq - Army unit recieves no casualties in a year

Shouldn't this be getting more coverage?

"The units spent most of the past year hauling equipment through Iraq. They covered more than 1.6 million miles, according to the National Guard - all without a single casualty."

UK - Osama bin Laden's 'right-hand man' freed

and more Muslim terrorists are to be freed.

"The earlier judgment on Abu Qatada’s deportation wrecked the policy of drawing up “memoranda of understanding” for the return of suspects to Middle East countries with poor human rights records. Further embarrassments are likely to follow. The Times understands that the head of an Algerian terrorist network that allegedly plotted bomb attacks in Europe and North America is seeking to be released because the courts have thwarted attempts to deport him. "


No wonder all roads to terrorism lead through Britain.

Al Qaeda in Iraq leader reportedly arrested

More good news. In fact, it gets even better.

"Interior Ministry spokesman Khalaf told the station by phone that a source close to the al Qaeda leader informed Mosul police that al-Masri would be at a house in the city's Wadi Hajar area at midnight Wednesday. "

US - Hillary Clinton losing by every standard

Losing the popular vote. Note her popular vote gain in Pennsylvania has been wiped out by Obama's landslide victory in North Carolina.

Losing the electability argument.

Losing with the Clinton Strategy.

No wonder she cancelled all her morning talk show gigs.

Japan Steadily Becoming a Land Of Few Children

Europe has this problem too. On the other side of the equation, Muslim birth rates are anywhere from 4 to 6 children per couple. Here in Britain, Muslims are allowed more than one wife and collect benefits for both even though polygamy is illegal. Britain, as with most of Europe, is paying for its own demise.

UK - Ken Livingstone out! Britain throws out the liberals!

Yes! Yes! Yes! Whoohoo!! London's communist, jihadist loving mayor is finally out! I may have a bottle of bubbly tonight. Whoohoo!

Now, let's see George Galloway in jail.

Reactions from others.

Is Britain finally waking up to the dangers posed by the left? Let's hope so.
