Air Force One in the Blizzard (FOXNEWS) STORM OF THE CENTURY WELCOMES OBAMA HOME - As Barack Obama boarded Air Force One for his triumphant return from the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, the blizzard of the century zeroed in on Washington, DC. Snow in the Washington, DC area was slated to top two feet in a region that rarely even sees snow in December. Meanwhile five Eurostar trains were stuck in tunnels under the English Channell because cold temperatures had stalled their engines. In Copenhagen, Obama pledged to destroy the American economy in the name of saving the planet from "man made" greenhouse gases. NOTE: Only 3% of all greenhouse gases are man made. Termites produce most of the world's CO2.

WHAT JIHAD ATTACK - Have you heard anything lately about the Jihad attack at Ft. Hood that killed 14 people and wounded more than thirty? Probably not much. While our government tries to sweep the attack under the rug, three Navy seals are being prosecuted for "abusing" a Muslim terrorist they had arrested. They slapped him the the face ... At least that is what he claims, but there are no witnesses and no physical evidence of abuse. But the Obama Administration prefers the word of a terrorist over that of elite Navy Seals who are sworn to defend the nation. Obama is going to move more than 100 terrorists to a prison in Illinois so that the ACLU can represent them in lawsuits that will cost tax payers tens of millions of dollars to defend.

SAFE SCHOOL CZAR AND SEX ON THE BUS - Obama's "Safe Schools Czar" founded a group that recommended a book titled "Queer 13: Lesbian and Gay Writers Recall Seventh Grade." One part of the book describes "near-rapes" of a 13 year old boy by older men, but says he "really did enjoy those sexual encounters." The author also describes sexual actions he performed with a stranger he met on a bus. Another book "Passages of Pride," talks of a 15-year-old boy's relationship with men much older than he. REALTY: Obama appointed Kevin Jennings as "Safe School" czar to facilitate making public schools "gay friendly," and to indoctrinate students with the idea that many types of homosexual behavior are normal. But Jennings has his defenders. The American Association of Librarians says that attacks on Jennings "undermine" freedom of the press. Read more

OBAMA NOMINEE WOULD FORCE CHURCHES TO HIRE HOMOSEXUALS - While Episcopal churches may have no problem with homosexual and lesbian bishops, those churches that believe the Bible is the Word of God don't want the government to force them to hire homosexuals. Chai Feldblum is President Obama's appointee to the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). She is a lesbian who signed a document promoting families with "more than one conjugal partner." Again and again she has stated that any "religious" enterprise (day care, school, etc) should be required to hire individuals regardless of their "sexual preferences." Americans For Truth have a lot of information on Feldblum. See group letter the Religious Freedom Coalition signed regarding Feldblum. Contact your Senator about the Feldblum confirmation.

MEDICARE DESTROYING HOSPITALS - Why does a Tylenol tablet cost ten bucks at a hospital? Because Medicare reimburses hospitals about 25% less than the actual cost of the care. The rising medical costs in the United States stem from the fact that Medicare and Medicaid reimburse doctors, labs and hospitals far below cost and in turn they must bill private insurance and individuals more. Last year the Mayo Clinic lost $840 million on Medicare patients. Under the system proposed by Barack Obama and Senator Harry Reid, hundreds of hospitals in the United States would go broke. Actually, that is what Obama and Reid want to happen. The final goal is for the government to operate hospitals and choose what treatments people receive.

CONGRESSMAN WOLF AND THE PANTHERS - Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) this week filed a "resolution of inquiry" in the House Judiciary Committee to learn why the Justice Department dismissed a case against the Black Panthers after they intimidated voters with clubs at a polling place in Philadelphia. Wolf has written the Attorney General six times seeking answers and has yet to receive the courtesy of a reply. He said, "I regret that Congress must resort to oversight resolutions as a means to receive information about the dismissal of this case, but the Congress and the American people have a right to know why this case was not prosecuted."

CONGRESSMAN CONDEMNS HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE IN DC - "Marriage is between one man and one woman," said Congressman Todd Tiahrt. "And for the fundamental health and future of our society, it should remain this way. The city council has twice denied giving D.C. residents a vote on this issue because they know it would face fierce opposition. Instead of empowering citizens, 11 activist council members have taken it upon themselves to redefine the institution of marriage for the nation's capital." Congressman Tiahrt is on the committee that oversees Washington, DC, and the Congress could overrule the Washington, DC city council. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who believes that homosexual acts are normal and God given, will not allow a vote on this or other issues unfavorable to homosexuals. Read more

HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE DICTATORS - In an Op-ed published by an Australian newspaper Professor Gerald M. Steinberg wrote that, "Tragically, Human Rights Day, which marks the anniversary of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Genocide Conventions, now serves as a reminder of the abject failure of the international community in living up to its moral commitments." The professor points out that the United Nations Human Rights Commission is controlled by the most vicious of dictatorships including Saudi Arabia, The Organization of the Islamic Conference controls the UNHRCs agenda despite "systematic oppression of women or minorities in Saudi Arabia, Syria, Libya, Gaza, etc." I urge you to read Professor Steinberg's article.

UN VOTES AGAINST RELIGIOUS FREEDOM - On December 18th the United Nations General Assembly approved a resolution that allows governments to punish their citizens for expressing their religious beliefs. Under the resolution anyone critical of Islam can be punished. The vote was 80 in favor in favor, 61 against, and 42 countries abstaining. The "defamation of religion" nod of approval from the United nations will "... solidify into international law a concept that restricts basic human rights," said the Beckett Fund which works to protect religious liberty. Read Beckett Fund release.

CHRISTIANS DISINTERRED IN GAZA - "Hamas digs up the bodies of Christians from burial sites in the Gaza Strip claiming that they pollute the earth," said Reverend Majed El Shafie, President of One Free World International (OFWI) during a conference in Jerusalem. Reverend El Shafie served a year in an Israeli jail for entering the country illegally, after escaping from an Egyptian jail where he faced death for converting to Christianity. He is now a pastor in Canada. El Shafie told an Israeli Parliament member that 200-300 million Christians are being persecuted, and 80 percent of them live in Muslim countries. Read more

CANADIAN PASTOR ACQUITTED OF HATE CRIME - A judge in Canada exonerated a pastor charged of a hate crime for writing a letter to the editor of a newspaper criticizing homosexuality. The Christian Post reported that, "Judge E.C. Wilson overturned a 2008 ruling by the Alberta Human Rights Commission that ordered former Alberta pastor Stephen Boissoin to stop all public criticisms of homosexuality and to pay the plaintiff $5,000 in damages." This is a dramatic turn of events in Canada where freedom of speech has become nearly non-existent. Canadians can be jailed for being critical of a variety of deviant behaviors including homosexuality. Citizens are even fearful of being critical of Islamic terror. Rear more

HOW BAD WILL 2025 BE? - Not much has been reported in the United States about the US Quadrennial Intelligence Community Review (QICR) 2009 but it paints a bleak picture. The forecast for 2025 is a world awash in weapons of mass destruction and mega-cities with their own policies and alliances. The United States will face a new Asian alliance that will form to challenge our power. Read more
