In "The Day of Islam," Williams takes you on a virtual tour of al-Qaida and its global operations.
You will discover their operations not only cross through Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, and other Muslim countries — but through Latin America, Mexico, and even our neighbor Canada!
What emerges is a harrowing picture of international terrorist activities, all aimed at the destruction of the United States and the collapse of the Western world.
Williams also reveals the man who has been tapped by bin Laden to lead the "Day of Islam" attack in the U.S. — a man who served as the "fixer" of 9/11 and yet has never been caught. He is believed to be here in the United States.
This dangerous man has wormed his way into American culture: He speaks perfect English and passes himself off as an Italian American. He is "the most dangerous man in the world."
FBI Director Mueller has called this man "the next Mohamed Atta" — but most Americans have never heard of him or seen his image. Williams expresses dismay that the FBI, well aware of this terrorist's threat, has not fully alerted the American public.
Indeed, al-Qaida reportedly had 42 operatives as part of its 9/11 attacks, and some 23 remain as "sleepers" in the United States.
Williams also reveals that al-Qaida's operations continue here in the United States, supported by supplies and personnel who simply slip through Mexico and across our porous border.
Williams names names — including top al-Qaida operatives that have admitted that Mexico remains the main conduit point for al-Qaida penetration into the United States. This includes the smuggling of nuclear materials.
"The Day of Islam" also offers a full translation of the "fatwa" — the religious order bin laden received in 2003 which "grants al-Qaida permission to kill 10 million Americans by way of nuclear weapons."
For those who think that al-Qaida has been disabled, dismembered, or neutralized, the "Day of Islam" will provide a wake up call like never before.
"This was the first attempt by the SPP to go public, and it failed," says Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of The Late Great USA. They thought nobody would notice. They were wrong."
Corsi called the sPP "a coup d-etat by bureaucratic means," adding that it works underhandedly like a shadow government.
"It is an attempt to turn North America into something like the European Economic Community," he says, "which began with economic cooperation and expanded eventually to include a common market, and then a full-scale regional government replacing, in many ways, the governing powers of the member nations."
Documents recently obtained by public interest group Judicial Watch reveal that "working groups" of the SPP are developing plans for U.S. taxpayer-funded initiatives to improve Mexico's infrastructure, within just six to 18 months.
SSP plans include:
Following the 2005 tri-lateral summit, the three leaders agreed, "We will establish ministerial-led working groups that will consult with stakeholders in our respective countries. These working groups will respond to the priorities of our people and our businesses and will set specific, measurable, and achievable goals."
The working groups include committees on "Manufactured Goods and Sectoral and Regional Competitiveness, Movement of Goods, Energy, Environment, E-Commerce and Information Communications Technologies, Financial Services, Business Facilitation, Food and Agriculture, Transportation and Health," according to the SPP Web, www.spp.gov.
"Basically, the SPP eliminates borders," Dr. Corsi tells NewsMax. "Just as in Europe, once free-flowing cross-border travel and full economic cooperation are established, the next step will be multi-national regulations and multi-national court systems to resolve disputes, with powers that supercede those of U.S. courts in many cases."
Opponents of the NAU slipping its provisions into a bill sold as way to strengthen the integrity of the nation's borders reflects the determination of those pushing a North American union.
The SPP has struck back with a FAQ section on their U.S. website, www.spp.gov, which attempts to counter "myths" of its ultimate aims, stressing that the SPP "does not change our courts or legislative processes and respects the sovereignty of the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The SPP in no way, shape or form considers the creation of a European Union-like structure or a common currency."
As to charges that the SPP is being undertaken without the knowledge of the Congress, the FAQs state, "US agencies involved with SPP regularly update and consult with members of Congress on our efforts and plans." SPP confirms that the SPP is a "White House-driven initiative. In the United States, the Department of Commerce coordinates the ‘Prosperity' component, while the Department of Homeland Security coordinates the ‘Security' component. The Department of State ensures the two components are coordinated and are consistent with U.S. foreign policy."
"They deny it – of course they do, but the ultimate direction of all these actions is driven by a one-world view," Dr. Corsi says. Corsi contends that President Bush has a secret agenda to dissolve the United States of America into the North American Union.
"However, as more people in the United States are becoming aware of the goals of the SPP, grassroots opposition to the SPP is growing very fast."
One example: 12 states are currently considering resolutions opposing the establishment of the NAU.
There is a federal effort to block the SPP as well.
It is spearheaded by a resolution, HCR 40, which states, "The United States should not allow the Security and Prosperity Partnership to implement further regulations that would create a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and the President should indicate strong opposition to these acts or any other proposals that threaten the sovereignty of the United States." The resolution also calls for the U.S. to not "engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement Superhighway System."
The resolution notes that "reports issued by the SPP indicate that it has implemented regulatory changes among the three countries that circumvent U.S. trade, transportation, homeland security and border security functions and that the SPP will continue to do so in the future."
The bill is sponsored by Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va., who tells NewsMax, "I hope that more Americans will become aware of the Security and Prosperity Partnership, which will lead to a North American union and the destruction of the sovereignty of the United States."
Cong. Goode, who opposed the Immigration Bill saying it would be "a disaster to our nation if it were to become law," says his resolution has attracted over two dozen co-sponsors so far.
"Defeat of the Immigration Bill was a setback for the supporters of the SPP, but they won't just give up and go away," Corsi warns. "There is a huge amount of international capital driving this. They will not give up easily."
Celebrating Independence Day
This 4th of July, I am excited to be visiting Moreauville, Bunkie and Sieper's Independence Day celebrations. My travels this week have already included wonderful events in Monroe, Dubach, Lake Charles, Grand Lake and Baton Rouge.
The 4th of July is an important opportunity to reflect on the many blessings we have as Americans, and the holiday also gives us a chance to spend treasured time with our family, friends and neighbors. During our nation's birthday, we should take time to give thanks for the fact that we live in the greatest nation in the world. I hope you enjoy your 4th of July this year and take a chance to discuss with your friends and neighbors how important it is to bring our state a fresh start this Election Day. With your help, I know we can move Louisiana to the top of all those national "good" lists where we below.
Legislative Session's "Missed Opportunities"
A Sunday editorial in the Lake Charles American Press summarized the recent legislative session as one that was "marred" by "missed opportunities." They are right. There were some needed accomplishments - such as teacher pay raises and crucial funding for increased law enforcement - but so many opportunities for reform and economic growth were simply passed up.
The American Press said, "Most alarming was that Blanco and lawmakers' spending spree of a healthy $2.8 billion surplus lacked fiscal responsibility. Lawmakers failed to do what financial planners advise clients to do with a windfall..." They concluded by adding that "In three months, Louisiana voters will have their own opportunity to demand that Louisiana stay the course or sail in a new direction on the winds of reform."
Similarly, the News Star pointed out that we cannot wait any longer for serious ethics reform in our state. Their Sunday editorial said that, "Lawmakers buzzed through some $30 billion"..."more money than ever due to a one-time influx of funds related to the 2005 storms. What they gained is difficult to discern, especially because of the madcap activity exercised by lawmakers in the Legislature's last days."
The News Star went on to say that, "absent an elevation in state ethics laws and practices, potential out-of-state investors for our state's economy may remain wary about investing money here. Too little is known about how lawmakers are spending our money, and this session did not improve that situation. We expect the days and weeks to come to unveil some unholy spending and ill-advised allocations by the Legislature. The wake of every session seems to unveil examples of that."
There is no doubt that the most pressing issue facing our state which demands immediate attention and reform is our ethics system. We cannot allow the impression that, in Louisiana, who you know is more important that what you know stand for a moment longer. Our public officials are elected to serve us, not themselves. We need an ethics system overhaul so serious that Louisiana becomes a model for every other state in the country. The time for a fresh start is now.
The News Star concluded that, "There's simply too much public cash bouncing around Baton Rouge to allow the old-time pols to stay in charge, free to abuse the public's trust. It's time to look ahead toward better days and better ways."
Jindal Amendment to Fight Gulf Coast Dead Zones Passes
The House of Representatives last week unanimously passed an amendment I offered that will help fight a problem that has become a serious threat to commercial fishing, shrimping and recreation industries off our coast - the hypoxic zone, or Dead Zone, in the Gulf of Mexico. This Dead Zone forms each summer in the Gulf of Mexico when pollutants are released into the Mississippi River and flow down to the Gulf, with large amounts of algae accumulating along the way. The growth and decomposing algae then proceed to consume the water's oxygen, making it uninhabitable for fish, shrimp, and other marine wildlife.
My amendment doubles the existing funding and directs an additional $2.5 million to the Environmental Protection Agency's "Gulf of Mexico Program," which provides grants to states, universities, and private entities to develop techniques and science needed to restore and protect the Gulf of Mexico. I am pleased that my colleagues realize that approximately 40 percent of the U.S. commercial fish yield comes from the Gulf of Mexico and the livelihoods of thousands of people and their communities are at risk, as is the large marine ecosystem on which they depend.
I have also included an editorial by the Times Picayune expressing the seriousness of this issue to Louisiana.
