THIRTY CZARS AND COUNTING - The "czar" situation at the White House is getting out of hand. There are now thirty czars, with President Obama looking for more. They have been given decision making power that is normally reserved for departments that are funded and controlled by acts of Congress. Some of the czars, such as Science Czar John Holdren, are just flat scary. In the past, Holdren has said forced abortions may be needed to save the planet from mankind. He sees people as a threat to the Earth. The "Terrorism Czar," John Brennan, has a long history of hostility toward the CIA. And let's not forget the unfathomable choice of Kevin Jennings as the "Safe Schools Czar." Jennings once said, "One of the people that's always inspired me is Harry Hay." Hay is the founder of NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) which promotes homosexual sex between older men and young boys. Most of these czars are unvetted. They did not have to answer any questions from Congress, nor did they have to pass security clearances. Some have actually belonged to communist affiliated organizations, and one has praised Hugo Chavez as a model for the rest of Latin America.

OBAMA TO ISRAEL: "SHRINK AND DIE" - Obama wants Israel to shrink itself to a size smaller that the total area of Houston, Texas. He believes that the Muslims, who already control 99% of the Middle East plus parts of Asia and Europe, must be given the land that Jews fought and died for to make "peace." Israel has been shrinking itself at the insistence of both Democrat and Republican presidents since Jimmy Carter. The result has been more terrorist attacks, not only on Israel but on the United States. Osama bin Laden, in his many statements, has made it clear that the 9-11 Jihad attack on the USA was punishment for supporting the very existence of Israel, regardless of its size.

HILLARY CLINTON AND ANTI-SEMITIC LEADERS - Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez has been influenced by his good ally Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and it appears the leftist movement in Latin America is moving toward the persecution of Jews. David Romero Ellner, a leftist supporter of ousted leftist president Manuel Zelaya in Honduras said, "Sometimes I ask myself if Hitler wasn't right when he wanted to finish with that race, through the famous holocaust, because if there are people that are harmful to this country, they are the Jews, the Israelites." Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama are supporting the return to power of Zelaya and his hateful anti-Semitic administration. He was removed legally by the Honduran Supreme Court after he tried to give himself a lifetime term as President, as did Chavez in Venezuela. Many Jews in Central America are now headed toward the United States and Israel because of the fear of persecution. Read more

THOUGHT CRIMES IN DEFENSE BILL- "No one doubts that the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 is an important piece of legislation. Its essential elements will provide for our troops the critical resources they need to accomplish their mission. However, the Majority in this Congress has cynically included hate crimes provisions in this legislation that threaten the very freedoms of speech and religion that draw our soldiers into the uniform of this nation." Those were the words of Congressman Mike Pence as he announced he could not vote for the Defense authorization bill because radical Nancy Pelosi added language that criminalized speech. His speech is on Youtube

SALAZAR VS. BUONO - That is the title of the case that was heard before the Supreme Court this week concerning a war memorial in a Mojave Desert federal park. Secularists and atheists want the memorial to fallen American servicemen torn down because it is in the shape of a cross. So far the atheists and the secularists have prevailed in lower courts. The case is very significant in that virtually every federal cemetery in the nation, including Arlington National Cemetery, has crosses. Virtually every grave in Arlington either has a cross or Star of David. The Supreme Court itself has several reliefs on the building and in the Court itself depicting religious faith. Should the Court side with the secularists and atheists, every religious symbol in our nation on public land would be in danger of removal. On Tuesday, October 6th I was one of the presenters at a press conference next to the Supreme Court. The purpose of the press conference was to remind the Court, the press and the nation of the Judeo-Christian foundations of our nation. See video of press conference here

US/UN APPROVE BLASPHEMY LAWS - Back in August I reported in this update about how Muslims rampaged in the Christian area of Gojra, Pakistan killing at least seven Christians and injuring many more. More than 100 Christian homes were looted and burned because of an unsubstantiated rumor of "blasphemy." Muslims accused the Christians of misuse of the Quran. There have been no arrests. Blasphemy laws in Pakistan are used against Christians and others when Muslims want to steal land or settle other disputes of revenge. Blasphemy laws are a tool against free speech in Islamic nations. Oddly the Obama Administration has now sided with Muslim nations in the UN who want to silence a free press worldwide.

The United States voted for a UN resolution which would be considered unconstitutional under our First Amendment . The UN Human Rights Council adopted the anti-blasphemy resolution that was sponsored by Egypt and the US. Read more

MORE PAKISTANI PERSECUTION - This year a billion and a half of our taxpayer dollars will be given to Pakistan despite the fact that audits show that 80% of aid is lost to corruption. Meanwhile Christians continue to face persecution. Murders of Christians and the destruction of Christian homes is becoming ever more frequent. Yet, the Obama Administration refuses to put restrictions on the use of the aid money that would bring some relief to the persecuted. Read more

RFC REPORT ON PAKISTANI BLASPHEMY LAWS - A meeting was held on the current situation of Pakistani laws at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC on October 7th. Click here to read the RFC report on this meeting and the Pakistani Blasphemy laws.

IRAQI CHRISTIAN REFUGEES - The persecution of our brothers and sisters in Christ who fled Iraq has gotten worse since our troops left the cities. Rather than Christians returning to Iraq, more are making their way to Jordan and Syria. Our ministry is barred from operating in Syria, but our feeding and medical program continues in Jordan. A third shipment of medical supplies has been delivered, and this week we funded our feeding program in Amman for another three months. Your help is still needed.
