Thoughts Of A Conservative Christian

They called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to reject Obama’s plan when he meets with him on Friday in Washington.

“Barack Hussein Obama adopted Yasser Arafat’s staged plan for Israel’s destruction, and he is trying to force it on our prime minister,” Likud MK Danny Danon said. “All that was new in the speech was that he called for Israel to return to 1967 borders without solving the crisis. Netanyahu has only one option: Tell Obama to forget about it.”

Environment Minister Gilad Erdan, also from the Likud, who as a minister close to Netanyahu must be more diplomatic, said on Channel 2 that according to Obama’s approach, the Palestinians would receive what they were demanding on borders before negotiations begin.

“Once they have everything from the start, they have no reason to make any concessions,” Erdan said.

But opposition leader Tzipi Livni said Obama’s plan was clearly in Israel’s interests, while the diplomatic stalemate that she believes was brought on by Netanyahu is not.

“On his visit, Netanyahu must display the leadership necessary now to create the conditions necessary to restart negotiations with those who are ready to end the conflict,” Livni said. “Only a real Israeli initiative with content that can receive American and international support can be an answer to the current dangers and opportunities.”

Her Kadima colleague, MK Yoel Hasson, warned that if Netanyahu did not take immediate action, he would bring Israel into deeper international isolation and have borders forced on the country unilaterally.

Kadima’s MK Otniel Schneller turned the focus back on his own party, however, calling on the opposition’s leadership to take a strong stand behind the prime minister on issues of foreign policy in light of Obama’s speech.

“Obama’s speech has placed before Israeli society and its representatives the challenge of unity and national agreement. The political disagreements and the motivation of the opposition parties should not overpower their responsibility for the future of the state,” Schneller said.

“On the level of diplomatic policy, Kadima believes in the same principles presented by the prime minister, which constitute the basis for a diplomatic program that the previous government under [prime minister Ehud] Olmert and foreign minister Tzipi Livni tried to advance,” he added. “It would be appropriate if during the prime minister’s meeting with President Obama, everyone knew that the prime minister has no opposition when it comes to realizing his diplomatic initiative. We should expect mature leadership from the heads of all of the Zionist parties on the existential questions facing Israel and its strategic interests.”

MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta’al) criticized the speech, saying Obama offered “nothing new” in regards to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Tibi told Channel 2 news the speech was intended more for Arab audiences who have been participating in pro-democracy protests in the past several months “Obama is riding the tiger of Arab democracy,” he said.


CHRISTIAN PARTICIPATION IN GOVERNMENT

Remember: The proverbial separation of church and state by a young America was to keep the state (government) out of the church, not the church out of the state. When you read the real history before it was revised by progressive writers people would see the real purpose and intent of the wording of the founding fathers.

They wanted religious freedom and freedom of conscious to be unshackled from the government. That is why the church model the young American state wished to separate from was that of the British monarch, who remains to this day Supreme Governor of the Church of England. This convenient arrangement dates from the 1534 Act of Supremacy. The title of the law gives you the general upshot, but, just in case you’re a bit slow on the uptake, the text proclaims “the King’s Majesty justly and rightfully is and ought to be the supreme head of the Church of England.” That’s to say, the sovereign is “the only supreme head on earth of the Church” and he shall enjoy “all honors, dignities, pre-eminences, jurisdictions, privileges, authorities, immunities, profits and commodities to the said dignity,” not to mention His Majesty “shall have full power and authority from time to time to visit, repress, redress, record, order, correct, restrain and amend all such errors, heresies, abuses, offenses, contempts and enormities, whatsoever they be.”

America’s Most Biblically Hostile President

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

    • December 2009-Present – The annual White House Christmas cards, rather than focusing on Christmas or faith, instead highlight things such as the family dogs. And the White House Christmas tree ornaments include figures such as Mao Tse-Tung and a drag queen. [1]
      • May 2016 – President Obama appoints a transgender to the Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships — an act of overt disdain and hostility toward traditional faith religions. [2]
        • September 2015 – For White House and State Department dinners, the president deliberately invites guests that he knows will be offensive to the Pope and who openly opposed his message, but he and the State Department very carefully avoid inviting guests that oppose or would offended the dictators of countries such as Cuba and China. [3]
          • June 2013 – The Obama Department of Justice defunds a Young Marines chapter in Louisiana because their oath mentioned God, and another youth program because it permits a voluntary student-led prayer. [4]

                            • April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. [13]
                              • February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. [14]
                                • January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. [15]
                                  • November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. [16]

                                              2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:

General Jerry Boykin (ret) was cancelled because Boykin was a traditional value Christian who has voiced his support for natural marriage and his opposition to Islamic extremism. (The atheist critic behind the cancellation had complained that Boykin as a “homophobic, Islamophobic, fundamentalist Christian extremist.”)[23]

                                                                          • August 2013 – A Senior Master Sergeant was removed from his position and reassigned because he told his openly lesbian squadron commander that she should not punish a staff sergeant who expressed his views in favor of traditional marriage.

                                                                                  • July 2013 – An Air Force chaplain who posted a website article on the importance of faith and the origin of the phrase “There are no atheists in foxholes” was officially ordered to remove his post because some were offended by the use of that famous World War II phrase.[40]

It stated: “On the eighth day, God looked down on His creation and said, ‘I need someone who will take care of the Airmen.’ So God created a First Sergeant.” Because the video mentioned the word “God,” the Air Force required that it be taken down.

                                                                                              • May 2013 – An Air Force officer was actually made to remove a personal Bible from his own desk because it “might” appear that he was condoning the particular religion to which he belonged. [47]

                                                                                                      • January 2013 – President Obama announced his opposition to a provision in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act protecting the rights of conscience for military chaplains. [52]

You kneejerk lefties are soooo concerned about the treatment of a bunch of illegal non-citizen children. Yet you care nothing about the 50 million or so unborn children who were murdered by abortion in this country. Children who had they been born, would have been American citizens.

The reality is, you care absolutely nothing about those children, except that they might grow up to be Democrats some day. The whole hoopla over the poor little immigrant children is nothing more than a political tool that you think you can use against President Trump and against the Republican Party. Something that you think will get you votes in the next elections.

Your Stormy Daniels kerfuffle has petered out, so this is nothing more than your "next big thing." The "cause of the week."

                                                                                                                                                                                                    This is inaccurate — there was no widespread Obama-era policy of separating parents and children — but it's a common talking point for Republican commentators and members of the president's administration. Trump's policy, now temporarily halted, aimed to prosecute every single illegal border crossing, including asylum-seekers. The government separated children from their parents or legal guardians because the adults had been referred for prosecution for illegal entry into the United States.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    I don't have a subscription to the NYTimes so can't read the article. I'm assuming its about children that have come here unaccompanied because you guys can't stop conflating the two.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Still sticking to the lie are ya?

                                                                                                                                                                                                    And the centers stand on dubious legal ground. Last year, a district judge ruled that the administration was violating a 1997 court-ordered settlement, called the Flores agreement, that governs the treatment of underage migrants who seek asylum or enter the country illegally. The judge said the children were being held for too long, and ordered the administration to release them as quickly as possible to the care of relatives or other guardians as their cases move through the immigration courts.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The administration appealed, saying that the agreement applied only to children who had crossed the border alone, not those who were accompanied by parents or other adult relatives. On July 6, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit disagreed, upholding the district ruling that Flores covers all children, accompanied or not. But it said the administration could still detain their parents.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Staff working on the behalf of the Office of Refugee Resettlement are routinely drugging detained child migrants with psychotropics without their parents’ consent, according to legal filings.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Trump administration officials have repeatedly insisted that the family separation policy they implemented over the last six weeks is humane. But the ongoing lawsuit over the Flores agreement, a 1997 settlement that partly governs the detention of child migrants that the White House hopes to overturn, alleges a litany of wrongdoings at the ORR-contracted facilities.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The drugging allegations are among the most disturbing. One child cited in the lawsuit reported taking up to nine pills in the morning and another seven in the evening, without knowing what the medication was.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    “ORR routinely administers children psychotropic drugs without lawful authorization,” a memo filed in the lawsuit on April 16 reads. “When youth object to taking such medications, ORR compels them. ORR neither requires nor asks for a parent’s consent before medicating a child, nor does it seek lawful authority to consent in parents’ stead. Instead, ORR or facility staff sign ‘consent’ forms anointing themselves with ‘authority’ to administer psychotropic drugs to confined children.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Most of the allegations center on Shiloh Residential Treatment Center, in Manvel, Texas. But lawyers in the Flores case, who have access to the medical records of their clients, say the problem is widespread.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    May 8, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Catholic Insight, Canada's national Catholic magazine of news, analysis and opinion, recently issued a review of U.S. President Barack Obama's first 50 days in office. It has now updated it to reflect his first 100 days and the revised article is presented below.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The anti-life assault begins

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The election of Barack Obama as president, Catholic Insight stated in a November 3, 2008 press release, would turn out to be a disaster for the advance of a pro-life culture. On the most important cultural issue of all, the equality and dignity of all human beings before God, President Obama represents the greatest threat today. His leadership is being hailed as a sign of hope across the world and welcomed with open arms. He has a 100 per cent approval rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America, the U.S.'s leading pro-abortion organization. That rating is based on a record of consistently voting against the unborn.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Obama has told Planned Parenthood he regards so-called choice as "a fundamental issue" on which he will not yield. He voted against an Induced Infant Liability Act in the Illinois legislature in 2002 this would have given legal protection and medical assistance to babies born from botched abortions. He also voted against banning partial-birth abortion in the Senate in October 2007. On another key issue, the integrity of the traditional family, in 2004 Obama called the Defence of Marriage Act an "abhorrent law" and added: "The repeal of DOMA is essential . For the record, I opposed DOMA in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from 'marrying.'"

                                                                                                                                                                                                    "We must be careful to keep our eyes on the prize - equal rights for every American," he has told homosexual activists. "We must continue to fight for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). We must vigorously expand hate-crime legislation and be vigilant about how these laws are enforced. We must continue to expand adoption rights to make them consistent and seamless throughout all 50 states and we must repeal the 'don't ask, don't tell' military policy." Apart from issues of human life and the family, there are numerous other question marks surrounding Obama, many of which are covered by Dr. Jerome Corsi in his New York Times bestselling book, The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality (see the review on page 32 of the April 2009 edition of Catholic Insight).

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Inauguration

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 20, 2009 Barack Obama is sworn in as president of the United States of America. His original birth certificate is not available. He calls himself a "person of faith," without specifying what faith he means. It is not Christianity as founded by Jesus and entrusted to his Apostles. In his inaugural address, Obama neglects to mention the American founders' emphasis on life and liberty as the first of the inalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence. Five minutes after Obama becomes president, the White House website changes from pro-life to pro-abortion.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 21 The president is at work selecting members of his staff and cabinet while Congress, where Democrats have a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, sets to work developing policies and legislation to advance the agnostic-atheist attack on the Judeo-Christian foundations of law and order. In Congress, Obama receives assistance from numerous Catholic politicians who have scuttled Catholic moral teaching in favour of "political correctness," i.e., various aspects of modern hedonism and the culture of death. While the overriding focus of attention during the first 50 days is the economy, the bailout of banks, various "stimulus" packages and the housing credit and unemployment crises, the anti-life agenda was set in motion from the beginning.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 21-22 Obama signs executive orders calling for the closure of Guantanamo Bay (January 22), a ban on torture (January 22) and new rules regarding transparency and lobbyists (January 21). This is what draws the attention of the world.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 21 Meanwhile, the White House website is updated - under the title "Civil Rights," for the LGBT activists, it reads:

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - SSM (same-sex "marriage")
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Repeal the Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA)
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Repeal the army's "don't ask, don't tell" policy
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Pass "hate crime" legislation granting "transgendered" homosexual activists and crossdressers equal rights
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Promote "gay adoption" (i.e., motherless or fatherless homes for children)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 22 Buried in the House Stimulus Bill, in Section 5004, is the "State Eligibility Option for Family Planning." This would make national Medicaid a money machine to the tune of $87 billion for family planning clinics in the United States. (Family planning in the U.S., as well as in Canada and elsewhere, means: "Planning not to have families," i.e., promote contraception, sterilization and abortion.) The U.S. already spends more than $400 million on overseas "family planning" assistance each year.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a guide for the use of embryonic stem cells for human trial. (To this point in time, embryonic stem cell research has never cured or helped any patient on the other hand, the use of adult stem cells already has some 80 medical achievements on its roster.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Two hundred thousand people walk in the March for Life in Washington, marking the 36th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision establishing abortion throughout the U.S.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Obama issues a written statement that he backs a woman's "right to choose."

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 23 Obama overturns, by executive order, the Mexico City Policy of previous presidents that forbade the funding of abortions and abortion groups outside U.S. boundaries. (No TV cameras or press were present for the signing on a late Friday afternoon when news services were shut down. Hundreds of millions of dollars will go to support abortions in poor countries, especially in Asia, Africa and South America.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Appended to the statement announcing the end of the Mexico City Policy, Obama declared: "In addition, I look forward to working with Congress to restore U.S. financial support for the UN Population Fund." (That funding was halted in 2002 when a State Department investigation showed the Fund supported China's coercive one-child-per- family policy through forced abortions and sterilizations.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 25 House of Representatives majority leader Nancy Pelosi (a pro-abortion, pro-same-sex "marriage" Catholic) declares that contraception is now part of the U.S. economy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 26 Obama calls upon Democratic leaders to remove the "family planning" provisions supported by Pelosi from the $825 billion stimulus bill, after Americans and media outlets, such as the Drudge Report, ridicule the items as non-starters in stimulating the economy and creating more jobs. Senate Republicans threaten a filibuster.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 27 A Congressional committee debates the Prevention First Act (PFA), which, if passed, would hand over millions for "family planning" methods, attack freedom of conscience rights for health providers and financially pave the way for the proposed Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which would strip all states of the ability to restrict abortions and homosexual activism. The Prevention First Act was introduced by Senate majority leader Harry Reid (Mormon, pro-abortion) on January 6, 2009. The act claims to reduce unintended pregnancies and abortion and is based on the premise that contraception prevents abortion. (In reality, contraception is the gateway to abortion.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Susan Rice, Obama's new ambassador to the UN, pledges support for the convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). Already, the CEDAW committee has tried to bully 93 countries into making abortion legal.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The administrator of the USAID foreign assistance program, pro-lifer Kent Hill, is replaced with Alonzo Fulgham, the CEO of the agency, who announces that the reversal of the Mexico City Policy is being implemented immediately. Fulgham issues a formal notice informing field offices worldwide.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The director of the UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), pro-abortion Thoraya Obaid (Saudi Arabia), welcomes Obama's restoration of $50 million to the UNFPA's coffers and its coercive population control plans. "Access to reproductive health (a code word for contraception, sterilization and abortion) is the core of equality for women and girls," she says. The funding had been suspended since 2002.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 28 Obama tells Democrats to remove a bailout for the Planned Parenthood abortion business ($200 million for 295 abortuaries and 850 consultation centres) from the economic stimulus bill after vigorous pro-life protests, for fear that it might jeopardize the bill's passage. It is dropped on January 30.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Senate defeats an amendment to restore the Mexico City Policy, 60-37. (Eighteen of 25 Catholic Senators helped defeat it.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Pro-life groups continue their massive protests and opposition to the FOCA bill, which has been filed with Congress. The act would outlaw every abortion restriction passed by Congress, state legislatures or local communities. Obama has repeatedly expressed his support for FOCA, the last time on January 22, 2008, the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. FOCA's sponsor is Senator Barbara Boxer (Jewish, pro-abortion).

                                                                                                                                                                                                    January 29 The UN children's agency UNICEF launches its annual report, stating: "Having a child remains one of the biggest health risks for women worldwide." It recommends global financing for "family planning" and "reproductive health services" as the primary way to reduce maternal deaths. It then admits that the statistics on worldwide annual deaths are subject "to a high degree of uncertainty."

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Senate, by a 59-39 vote, rejects national medical coverage in the SCHIP program for unborn children and their pregnant mothers. This, pro-life sources say, will lead to more abortions, supposedly against the president's intention of reducing abortions.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    February 5 Obama's new group of 24 faith-based advisors includes Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Washington-based Religious Action Centre of Reform Judaism, which was a sponsor of a 2004 pro-abortion march by Planned Parenthood and NARAL. Other pro-abortion members are added later.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    February 6 The Senate refuses to remove a discrimination clause against the religious use of university facilities benefiting from the stimulus bill.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    February 19 The federal government is drafting guidelines that will be put in place once Obama approves federal funds for embryonic stem cell research.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    February 25 As feared by pro-life groups, the Omnibus Appropriations Bill cuts funding for abstinence education by $54 million, while giving more money to Planned Parenthood programs. This leaves only $95 million for national programs. This money disappears later on.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Time magazine, in attacking opponents of the FOCA bill, is accused of many inaccuracies, non-sequiturs and misrepresentations. Time has described the bill as "mythical." Yet, Obama announced his intentions to sign such a bill in 2006, again in a July 2007 speech to Planned Parenthood and once more on January 22, 2008 on the Roe v. Wadeanniversary.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    February 27 The Obama administration prepares to rescind conscience rules for health care workers. Obama officials tell the Chicago Tribune that, for the Provider Conscience Law and other regulations protecting medical personnel against involvement in abortions, they are opening a 30-day public comment period, after which they will rescind the law. Pro-abortion groups have long desired to coerce all medical personnel and hospitals into providing contraception and sterilizations and committing abortions. As one writer put it, "This is a declaration of war on all who oppose the killing of the unborn."

Pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, however, are invited to attend. Planned Parenthood's president, Cecile Richards, called for including access to abortion in any health care reform plan.

It is a follow-up to the postcard campaign begun in January.

"As a person of faith, I believe we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering," the President said, (forgetting that human embryos are killed in the process).

Meanwhile, adult stem-cell research has over 70 therapies to its credit so far. The President's Executive Order also removes the HHS Secretary's duty to pursue funding for adult stem-cell research.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The facts of the first 50 days of the Obama presidency seem overwhelming. According to the 55-page pro-abortion document, "Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration," $4.5 billion in federal funding will be disbursed at home and abroad to "advance reproductive rights." This document is posted on http://www.change.org, Obama's official website for his transition team.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Obama's Steps for the First 100 Days projects the end of the Mexico City Policy, the Hyde Amendment, the Kemp-Kasten Amendment, the Weldon Amendment, restrictions on emergency contraception (Plan B), the termination of all abstinence-only programs and a reversal of the recent HHS regulation protecting pro-life physicians and institutions. By Day 50, many of these had been accomplished already. Any present obstacles to so-called abortion rights not covered by removing these restrictions, such as the ban on partial birth abortion and state laws requiring parental notification, will be covered by the passage of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) or perhaps by many acts or regulations each embodying one particular aspect.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    We draw the attention of our readers especially to the coercion which is built into many of these measures. A combined United States-United Nations assault on the freedom of poor countries to determine their own domestic policies on population is already underway. At home, the Obama regime will take on more abusive, tyrannical features as it seeks to destroy the rights of people to disagree and dissent. All along, this has been the implication of the new legislated rights to kill and to overthrow the natural moral law in family and sexual matters introduced 40 years ago. The president and his advisors will be making some 7,000 appointments who will influence policy they will be pro-abortion ones, said one commentator, with the exception being the ambassador to the Vatican. What resistance the Christian community will be able to offer remains to be seen.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 10 The end of the first 50 days. Except for publicity about the new financing of stem cell research and a mention of the overturning of the Mexico City Policy, adoring liberal daily newspapers have not mentioned Obama's new Death Culture.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 11 The Obama administration opens an e-mail address for public comments to respond to the decision to dump the Provider Conscience Clause. The e-mail window will close on April 9, after which a simple Executive Order can eliminate the protective shield against discrimination for pro-life health care personnel.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Obama establishes a White House Council on Women and Girls and appoints pro-abortion Chicago lawyer Tina Tchen as Executive Director. Tchen served as Vice-President of NOW (National Organization for Women). The new Council will examine all federal laws to see how they affect women, especially from the point of view of feminist "rights" supporters.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 12 The United Nations Annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meeting continues in New York. The US delegation (Ellen Chester) states that "sexual and reproductive health and rights" will be a priority with them from now on. Their delegation considers abortion to be part of "reproductive health," even though in the past that interpretation was voted down by the majority.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Obama administration publishes a proposal in the Federal Register to rescind the pro-life protections for health care personnel in its entirely.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Senate stimulus bill contains a bailout package for Planned Parenthood.
                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The Senate rejects by a 55-39 vote an amendment to stop US taxpayer funding of the UNFPA. The UNFPA backs policies of forced abortion and sterilizations, as in China.
                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 17 President Obama's first federal judicial nominee (to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals) is pro-abortion US district Judge David Hamilton. The President is also bringing back the judicial reviews of the American Bar Association whose members regularly take a pro-abortion stand.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 18 Cardinal Francis George of Chicago visits President Obama at the White House for an unscheduled visit. Purpose: to express the Catholic Church's opposition to the administration's anti-life agenda. Earlier Cardinal George had expressed the bishops' deep concern about Obama rescinding the conscience protection legislation put in place by the Bush administration.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - The State department confirms that Hillary Clinton will endorse the UN declaration calling for the global "decriminalization of homosexuality." That is a measure former President Bush had refused to sign. President Obama sent a $50 million cheque to the UN Population Fund.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    March 20 Notre Dame University President Father John Jenkins invites President Obama to address the commencement exercises on May 17 and receive an honorary Doctor of Law degree. It sets off a tremendous adverse reaction among Catholics aware of the President's pro-abortion agenda.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - All four pro-abortion candidates for the Office of Legal Counsel, David Odgen, Dawn Johnsen, Thomas Perelli, Elena Kagan have received Senate approval.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    - Various Congressional Bills are gutting abstinence education while promoting "comprehensive" sex education heavy on contraception. The Administration is now giving financial aid to Marie Stopes International, a British abortion provider with branches throughout Africa.

Nineteen "Catholic" Senators vote for Sebelius, indicating again that the issue of abortion means little or nothing to them.

The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Act of 2009 grants the federal government authority to punish crimes that appear to be motivated by "hatred" of a person's sexual orientation. H.R. 1913 "serves only to punish individuals for the beliefs, opinions or convictions held at the time an act is committed" (Liberty University law professor Shawn Akers). " As such H.R. 1913 does not punish criminal intent, but criminalizes thought." The House approved H.R. 1913 and voted 249-175 for the inclusion of sexual orientation as a protected right. Here, as in other countries, no definition of sexual orientation is provided.

Freedom of speech, thought and religion are now under attack. False "rights" are about to triumph. The Culture of Death is seeking to destroy the Culture of Life. In this it will fail because of the secret power on the side of Life, which will conquer even despite the mass apostasy of its Protestant and Catholic followers.

Iran and Syria do not. So when he removes US support from the former, his action redounds to the direct benefit of the latter.

And it has been happy.

What is going on? What is there about 50% real increases in equity values over less than 3 1/2 years that is not to like? For the past 30+ years, these guys have been surrounded by people who treat them like they were Pashas, both in their social circles on Wall Street as well both sides of the partisan divide in Washington, DC, so when Barack Obama calls them "Wall Street Fat Cats", their heads explode.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    This is despite the fact he, and his sidekick Timmy Geithner, bail them out, and quash prosecutions.

Currently they are deathly afraid that they will be called obstructionist by Obama, the press and people like Jake who want things both ways. The only way they could have cut spending is to shut down the government and forced Obama to sign off on a lower budget. They were too afraid. Now I ask Jake- would you have been in favor of a government shutdown?

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Now I will ask another question of Jake: Does anyone on this planet deny that spending- as bad as it is- would be even higher if the Dems were in control of Congress? Really the only fiscal difference between the R's and D's is that the R's (for the most part) want to spend way too much and the D's want to spend a whole lot more. There are about 50% of the R's that are truly committed to balancing the budget. There are about 0% on the D side.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Amidst all the cries of Barack Obama being the most prolific big government spender the nation has ever suffered, Marketwatch is reporting that our president has actually been tighter with a buck than any United States president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.


                                                                                                                                                                                                    So, how have the Republicans managed to persuade Americans to buy into the whole “Obama as big spender” narrative?

                                                                                                                                                                                                    It might have something to do with the first year of the Obama presidency where the federal budget increased a whopping 17.9% —going from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. I’ll bet you think that this is the result of the Obama sponsored stimulus plan that is so frequently vilified by the conservatives…but you would be wrong.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    The first year of any incoming president term is saddled—for better or for worse—with the budget set by the president whom immediately precedes the new occupant of the White House. Indeed, not only was the 2009 budget the property of George W. Bush—and passed by the 2008 Congress—it was in effect four months before Barack Obama took the oath of office.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Accordingly, the first budget that can be blamed on our current president began in 2010 with the budgets running through and including including fiscal year 2013 standing as charges on the Obama account, even if a President Willard M. Romney takes over the office on January 20, 2013.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    So, how do the actual Obama annual budgets look?

                                                                                                                                                                                                    In fiscal 2010 (the first Obama budget) spending fell 1.8% to $3.46 trillion.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate of the budget that was agreed to last August.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Finally in fiscal 2013 — the final budget of Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58 trillion.

After all I would have just slowed down by a greater percentage than anyone else on the road.

Obama has spent about 8 trillion in deficit spending since he arrived in office. The only slowing of his spending is caused by the party that "obstructs him" from doing even more.

Obama inherited an even bigger recession and 2 wars with no end and no way to "win" adding to the over spending. And you are completely wrong, Obama has slowed spending. I've proven it with actual numbers which you now are trying to ignore.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    In the end this is all pointless because I actually agree with you on the over all idea that the government is spending too much and its completely unacceptable. Its a joke that we are expected to live within our budges (as citizens I'm speaking), but the government thinks they can just keep over spending their budget every year and not care. I understand circumstances will arise where a surge in spending is needed and justified above what the revenue is (this happens for regular citizens too, they are called emergencies). But then the next years you need to adjust your budgets to compensate for the overspending you have done. Its common sense to me because it was something taught to me at a young age.

Obama only had left the decision between a residual force and none. He made the wrong choice. On Afghanistan he made the mind boggling choice to "surge" while making our soldiers tie their hands behind their backs. His choice.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    His spending has slowed but only because he went through such a wild orgy of spending his first four years. Again he was going 200MPH and has slowed to 100MPH. Bush never made it over 90.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Obama started in 2009. Period. Try to repaint it any way you want. Since then he has spent 8 trillion in 6.5 years- an average of a 1.2 trillion average deficit. Bush had closed the deficit spending to 175 billion or so by 2007 before the banking crisis hit which had little to do with his policies. Bush never had deficits like Obama had.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Obama spent all this money and. he wanted to spend a lot MORE but was restrained by the R's. The R's have not done near enough. They should have shut down the government this winter when they had a chance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Israel's Prime Minister on Sunday said openly and loudly that he will go anywhere in the world where he is invited to speak about the clear and present danger posed by Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and the threat to Israel, the United States and European nations posed by radical Islam, according to the Middle Eastern news agencies. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a former officer with the Israeli special forces, while not mentioning names left the impression he was referring to his controversial upcoming visit to the United States.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Although at first the Obama administration seemed to disregard the Netanyahu invitation to address the U.S. Congress which came from House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and the majority Republicans, President Barack Obama's politically-driven administration officials claimed
                                                                                                                                                                                                    Speaker Boehner committed a faux pas of diplomatic protocol.

                                                                                                                                                                                                    Speaker Boehner, the Republican majority in Congress and many Democratic lawmakers wish to increase economic sanctions against the Iranian regime as it continues to defy the international community by developing a nuclear weapon and a delivery system that would increase the radical Islamic nation's aggression against Israel and the United States.

Kerry is famous throughout the world for saying he was for funding the war in Iraq before he was against it, during his abysmal presidential campaign.

But most of the Sunday morning news shows airing on ABC, CBS, NBC and cable news outlets including MSNBC, appeared to portray Boehner and Netanyahu as being disrespectful towards President Obama.

"The news media's short memories fail to recall the times the Democrats undermined President George W. Bush at every turn" added Snopes.

"Last week the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to increase their mutual interests, one of which is quite possibly hurting the United States," he added.
