OBAMA'S PAYBACK TO HOMOSEXUALS - This week Barack Obama signed the Defense Authorization Bill that included special rights and protections for homosexuals. The bill authorized grants of $100,000 to investigate hate crimes, the grants to be given to local and "tribal" law enforcement agencies. Careful reading reveals the following: A local agency only gets additional grant funds if it is investigating a "hate crime." There will now be a huge spike in "hate crime" investigations as local agency that are cash strapped try to get the funds. Homosexuals were given the special protections and rights in the Defense Authorization as a payback by Obama for the many millions of dollars donated to him, much of it illegally, by homosexual groups.

OBAMA THE GOLF GUY - President George W. Bush suffered from media attacks for participating in any recreational activity while our troops were in harm's way. There has been virtually no news media reports on the 24 golf outings by Obama. Even less attention has been paid to the identities of those who play golf with him, such as UBS America's CEO Robert Wolf. (UBS is a Swiss Bank) The CEO had raised half a million dollars for Obama and his bank got a sweetheart deal with the IRS. Obama has also given the keys to the White House bowling alley to his top donors, and he watched a 3-D movie with them in the White House movie theater. Read more

A TRILLION HERE, A TRILLION THERE - This week, left wing radical Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled yet another "health reform" bill in the House. This one is almost 2,000 pages long and sort of merges three previous bills that passed different committees in the House. The cost to taxpayers is "only" a trillion dollars, (and that's if all the savings the bill estimates actually come to pass, which no rational person believes). One underlying concept of the bill is that demand on medical services will not increase once the government begins to subsidize medical insurance. Remember cash for clunkers? When the government gave out checks for $4,500 to individuals to buy cars, demand increased 10%. But the Pelosi bill assumes no increased demand if government subsidizes health insurance. Is this a joke?

PELOSI'S ABORTION BILL - Late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart was standing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she announced her new "health care" bill. He wants to make sure that there will be taxpayer-funded abortions, including partial birth abortions. Few understand that the United States is one of only a handful of nations in which abortion is a major industry. Germany has one-third the abortions as does the United States, and late term abortions are virtually impossible to obtain in Europe. Read more

ABOUT CASH FOR CLUNKERS - Remember those $4,500 checks to buy new cars this past summer? A new estimate shows the actual cost per "clunker" taken off the road was $24,000 each! found that of the 690,00 cars sold during the program only 125,000 sales were caused by the rebates. The rest of sales were because of accidents, lease returns and folks that just happened to be lucky enough to have the government money available when they traded their car. So the $3 billion was actually only causing the sales of 125,000 cars. Read more

RADICAL MUSLIMS vs. FBI IN MICHIGAN SHOOT OUT - On Wednesday, the FBI fatally shot Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah when he refused to surrender during a raid on Ummah facilities. More than a dozen were arrested. The Imam preached that criminal acts were acceptable if they advanced Islam. He urged his followers to support Al Qaeda, the Taliban and Hezbollah and that all infidels (us!) must live under Muslim rule. Dawud Walid, head of CAIR's (Council on American-Islamic Relations) Michigan branch, defended Abdullah, calling him a "respectable imam in the Muslim community." The Obama Administration sees CAIR as a moderate Islamic organization and its leaders are frequently invited to Administration functions. The shoot out was not much more than fleeting news in the "mainstream media." Read more

JEWS SHOT AT LOS ANGELES SYNAGOGUE - Yes, it was in the news very briefly. The police "think" it may have been a "hate crime." Two Jewish men where shot in the legs on the steps of a Los Angeles synagogue. I can't find a single news outlet where this story is featured ... you sort of have to dig for it. Just imagine if this would have been a "gay night club." Obama would have sent scores of FBI agents and it would be front page news in the New York Times and Washington Post ... but, they were "just" Jews. Read Fox story

VIDAL SAYS 13 YEAR OLD RAPE VICTIM A "HOOKER" - I know there are some sane people in Hollywoood because I have met them. For example there are Chuck Norris, Ben Stein, Pat Boone, Kathy Ireland, and Rick Schroeder. But let's face it, most of Hollywood is flat out nuts and Gore Vidal proves it. In an interview he defended Roman Polanski's drug-rape of a 13-year-old girl claiming she was really a "hooker." This comes a few days after he said in a TV interview that he wanted to murder President George W. Bush. ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC oddly don't see anything about his comments that they can complain about. We live in a very ill society. Read more

The Pledge: One Nation Under God NEWDOW AND UNDER GOD - Atheist Michael Newdow has appealed his loss in New Hampshire federal district court to the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston. Newdow wants to overturn Chief Judge Steven McAuliffe's decision in favor of "under God" in the Pledge in the Hanover, New Hampshire public schools. Lower courts have ruled that the words "under God" do not violate the Constitution.

THE PLEDGE - ONE NATION UNDER GOD - My book, "The Pledge: One Nation Under God," which covers the history of the Pledge of Allegiance and the important reasons why "under God" should remain in it, is still available at our Internet bookstore.

AFGHAN GIRLS SET THEMSELVES ON FIRE - NBC News reported on a horror which is common in Islamic nations without once mentioning Islam. Young girls, sometimes as young as eleven years old, who are forced into polygamist marriages, set themselves on fire because they are treated as slaves. Once disfigured they believe the husbands will discard them for another pre-teen or teen. Our brave men and women are fighting to uphold an Afghan constitution that allows polygamy, the slavery of young girls, and the death penalty for those who convert to Christianity.See NBC clip here. Polygamy is the driving force behind Jihad. In many Muslim nations up to 50% of the men cannot find wives because of polygamy. These are the recruits for Jihad.

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 last week we funded our feeding program in Amman for another three months. Your help is still needed.

SPECIAL IRAQI UPDATE - Our ministry partner from Jordan will be in Washington, DC in November, and arrangements have been made to visit several congressional offices. We will also prepare a large shipment of medical supplies to be sent back to the clinic we support in Jordan, enough to last through November and December. Please help financially with these projects.
