Crowley helps Gates as Obama walks away A CARING PRESIDENT -The White House "beer summit" was supposed to bring together the "stupid" white police officer and the elderly black professor he arrested. The final result was a telling photograph that shows President Obama walking away from his old friend as the cop, who had been declared a racist by Obama's allies, helps the elderly black gentleman down the stairs. The body language of the photograph shows a self-centered and aloof president. Click here or on photo is see larger image at the White House site.

OBAMA'S MANDATE - Last November the nation's financial systems were broken and average Americans did not believe the system could be fixed by an elderly Senator who was a Washington insider. The people gave a mandate to Barack Obama to try to fix the economy. But Obama thought otherwise. He saw his victory as a mandate for homosexual marriage, abortions paid for by taxpayers and a radical social agenda that includes censorship of ideas he does not accept. In the "health reform" battle he is suddenly faced with the reality that the majority who voted for him do not support his radical socialist agenda that even Europe has abandoned. His reaction has been to put in place at the White House a system to spy on the citizens. He has requested that his "true" followers send an e-mail to a special address at the White House to report on anyone who is "fishy" about health care reform. The definition of "fishy" is anyone who disagrees with the radical Obama/Pelosi agenda.

NOT A WORD TO PAKISTAN ON MURDERS - President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, have not said a word about the massacre of Christians in Pakistan on August 1, 2009. Not wanting to offend Muslims, it seems that Barack Obama has decided that the murder of Christians in Muslim nations is not something that is of any concern to him. More in International section

IS NANCY PELOSI JUST FLAT OUT NUTS? - On a taped interview Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that those opposing the radical nationalized health care system she supports had worn "Nazi swastikas" to congressional town hall meetings. This is of course a lie. Some people have carried signs that say they don't want the Nazi type legislation Nancy Pelosi proposes. Far from promoting Nazism, they want to stop the fascist agenda that is emanating from Washington, DC. See Examiner story.

NEW JETS FOR GLOBE-TROTTING - Before leaving town on their August recess the Congress ordered up six more aircraft to joy ride on that the military didn't want. Apparently congressmen and Senators have the need for speed to travel overseas and don't have time for commercial flights ... Just a few months ago congressmen and Senators were berating CEO's for using corporate jets. Congress also recently upped its expense allowances. The Wall Street Journal had the best story on this, but it is a paid service. Read the Fox News take on it here.

THE AUGUST RECESS - Both the House and Senate have now gone into August recess and will not return until after Labor Day which is September 7th this year. Many congressmen and Senators are holding town-hall meetings in their districts and they are getting an earful about health care. What went wrong? The people learned the truth. Barack Obama said he wanted to provide health insurance for those who did not have it.Most people agreed with that until they learned that they would probably have to give up their own policies and pay higher taxes. His plan also reduces the care for the elderly by dismantling Medicare Advantage and then reducing allowable expenditures for the nation's senior citizens.

HATE CRIMES "AMENDMENT - There was no way to stop the Thought Crimes legislation pushed by radical Democrats in Congress .... BUT ... Senator Sam Brownback was able to add an amendment in the Senate to protect religious speech. Without his amendment it could literally be against the law to quote the Bible on issues of homosexuality. The Brownback amendment was agreed to by an overwhelming majority of the Senate, with a vote of 78-13. Although passed in the Senate, his amendment is not in the House version of the bill. That means it is up to a House-Senate conference committee to decide if it will be in the final bill. Because "Hate Crimes" legislation was attached to a defense authorization bill it is important to contact members of the House Armed Services Committee, both Democrat and Republican, on this issue. Contact List Let them know how you feel about the Brownback Amendment to "Hate Crimes."

OBAMA CARE TO PAY FOR SEX CHANGES? - At a hearing this week Senator Orin Hatch (R-UT) asked if President Obama's helath care plan will mandate taxpayer funded abortions. Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) said yes. She said that it will require "any service deemed medically necessary or medically appropriate." "Medically appropriate" will cover more than abortion on demand. It will also include "gender reassignment" surgeries for both U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants. For those who do not understand the language of government, "gender reassignment" means "sex change operation" at a cost of about $50,000 per procedure. This cost does not include the hormone treatments that are required for life that will also be paid for with our taxes.

STEALING THE REMAINS OF THE DEAD - In Europe radical environmentalists and animal rights advocates have been burning the homes of executives of drug companies. They have vandalized the cars of employees and even attacked businesses that buy their products. One executive's home was burned and his cremated mother's ashes stolen. Read more. Because they radicals refuse to accept God's plan in the Bible they choice the "green religion" that permits acts of violence towards humanity.

MORE CHRISTIANS MURDERED IN PAKISTAN - Just days ago Christians in Pakistan were attacked by Muslim mobs and eight were burned to death in their homes according to the media. E-mails I have received from pastors there say 14 people were burned to death including wome n and children. More than 50 homes were burned down.

The Pakistani government did little until European leaders demanded intervention. President Obama said nothing. There was no comment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the burning of Christian homes, the beatings, or the murders. There was no comment from conservative leaders in Congress and there was no comment about the massacre from America's Christian leaders.

President Obama is about to take yet another tour of Africa and I am sure he will talk about his "respect" for Islam as he did during his last trip to northern Africa. Apparently his "respect" for Islam is so great that his eyes are closed to the suffering of Christians in Muslim nations such as Pakistan. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and apparently conservative leaders as well, see Pakistan as an "ally" rather than the breeding ground for terror that it is. See news feed
