OBAMA SAYS ATHEISTS EXPRESS GOD'S GRACE - In President Obama's liberal mindset all religions are the same. Liberals view religion as a "tradition" or a "personal preference" rather than as God's revelation of eternal truth. Obama actually stated at the National Prayer Breakfast this week that God's grace is expressed "by Americans of every faith, and no faith, uniting around a common purpose, a higher purpose." What is he talking about? Atheists don't express God's grace. Buddhism and Hinduism don't have the concept of redemption at all. Obama has no idea what he is talking about. Although he claims to be a Christian he never mentioned Christ or Christianity once, although he did manage to show some disrespect for evangelical pastors and at the same time promote the homosexual agenda by criticizing "homophobia." There were other firsts for President Obama. Breaking the long held tradition that the Prayer Breakfast should not be too political, he pushed his political agenda including his "health reform" and amnesty for illegals. He was followed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who said, "religion, cloaked in naked power lust, is used to justify horrific violence, attacks on homes, markets, schools, volleyball games, churches, mosques, synagogues, temples." While she went on to talk about jihadist attacks she never mentioned Islam, giving the impression that all religions behave in such a manner. A lot of pastors from all over the world come to the National Prayer Breakfast each year, and I know many of them are deeply grieved by what they heard at this event.

OBAMA AID INSULTS POPE AGAIN - Harry Knox is the radical homosexual who is a member of President Barack Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Obama stood by Knox when he said that Pope Benedict XVI is "hurting people in the name of Jesus." This week in a news conference Knox reaffirmed his viral anti-Catholic attitude to the point that Majority Leader John Boehner is calling for his resignation. Knox, who claims to have once been a Methodist minister, promotes the homosexual agenda and was a key leader in the Human Rights Campaign, an organization that wants to silence all criticism of homosexuality.

YOUR STIMULUS DOLLARS AT WORK - Penn State University got $1.5 million to study plant fossils in Argentina. Of five jobs "created," two are in Argentina. One hundred residents of Buffalo, NY were paid $45 each to tell researchers how much malt liquor they drank while smoking pot, as part of a "study" that cost $389,000. Meanwhile, three grad students in Arizona got $1 million to study how ants work -- that is over $300,000 per job! My favorite was an aerospace company that received $15 million to monitor water quality in a creek that it had already been fined for polluting! It gets worse. The stimulus funds have been wasted for the most part on non-private sector jobs that provide no real goods or services. After a year of "stimulus," unemployment is higher and the nation is deeper in debt. America needs real jobs, not ridiculously expensive "keep busy" government programs.

RADICAL EXTREMIST APPOINTED TO HEAD LEGAL COUNSEL -President Obama has nominated a radical, baby-hating feminist to head the Office of Legal Counsel. The nominee, Dawn Johnsen, has filed legal briefs in which she compared pregnancy to slavery. She also called pregnant women "losers" and "fetal containers." Johnsen has compared those who oppose abortion to members of the Ku Klux Klan. Johnsen is so radical as a baby hater that she opposes Democrat plans to reduce the demand for abortion. As head of the Office of Legal Counsel, she will not represent all Americans, only a minority of baby hating feminists. Representatives of numerous organizations have written to Senators asking that her nomination be rejected. (See letter) View Congressman Cantor comments on Dawn Johnsen. Contact your Senator with your comments on Dawn Johnsen.

YOU OWE $10,000 TO CHINA - I hope we all like our new Chinese toasters, because they're going to cost our kids and grandkids thousands of dollars each! Right now our government owes $12.3 trillion, or a little over $40 thousand for every man woman and child in America. If you have a family of four then you owe $160 thousand. The Congress just upped the debt limit to $14,294,000,000,000 or a little over $45,000 for each and every person in the United States. The debt per family, just to China alone, is about $10,000. See actual amendment language. More than half the debt is owned by foreign entities such as oil rich Muslims and the Chinese government. Currently the interest on our public debt is $1.5 billion a day. Should the USA credit rating drop from AAA, which is likely, the interest paid must rise.

A HOUSE YOU CAN'T AFFORD - We have all watched as millions of Americans lost homes to foreclosure in the last two years. While a few home owners lost jobs, most of the home losses were caused by families borrowing more than they could pay back. When these families borrowed the money, they believed that sometime in the future they would make more money and be able to keep the homes. It didn't work out that way. Today our federal government is doing the same thing, borrowing trillions of dollars in the hope that future income will somehow cover the payments. With an aging population and the manufacturing base having moved to China, it is highly unlikely that future income will increase. On the contrary the debt will balloon as baby boomers retire and the government pays for their medical expenses. Today's federal debt does not include the $35 trillion or more dollars needed for baby-boomers retirement and medical expenses. China can't lend us that much, they don't have it. Not even the entire world has the money to pay the obligations the United States has promised to pay in the next thirty years. At some time in the future the house is going to be foreclosed on.

SWEDEN DEPORTS IRAQI CHRISTIANS - The Swedish government appears to have no problem allowing the construction of mosques financed by Saudi Arabia, but has kicked Iraqi Christians out of the country illegally. An Assyrian news agency reports that "25 Assyrian persons and families were forcibly returned to Iraq. Upon their arrival at Baghdad airport, no arrangements were made to safely transport them to their final destinations. With the threat of kidnapping very high, nearly all stayed at the airport, only to be helped by Assyrians working at the airport, who realized the returnees were Assyrian. Of the 25 who were returned, 24 fled the country again, and one was given refugee status by UNHCR in Ankara, which has acknowledged that it is not safe for Assyrians and other Christians in Iraq." An investigation of the reports in Sweden by a radio station has created political problems for the leftist government. Read more

DUTCH RULE AGAINST FAIR TRIAL -A Dutch court has ruled that the defense cannot call witnesses to defend Ge,ert Wilders. Of the eighteen witnesses he called in his defense only three will be permitted by the court, and the public is not allowed to hear their testimony. On the other hand the pro-Muslim prosecution witnesses will be allowed press coverage. The trial against the conspirators who attempted to kill Adolph Hitler was conducted in a more fair and open manner. The Dutch government allows Islamic imans to preach anti-Semitic hatred every Friday. Dutch Muslim publications slur Christians and Jews and call for the death of anyone who converts from Islam. All that appears to be permitted under "free speech" in the Netherlands, but criticizing Islam gets you put in jail. The trial of Geert Wilders is really about the surrender of the Netherlands to Islam. The Dutch government fears their Muslim immigrants. Their cowardice causes them to persecute those who cherish free speech. Anyone doing business with Dutch firms such as Shell Oil (part of Royal Dutch Shell) is participating in the persecution of Geert Wilders. L earn more

MODERATE INDONESIA CLOSES CHURCHES - Our American department stores are full of clothes made in the "moderate" Islamic nation of Indonesia (although I, for one, don't buy them) . Last week authorities ordered the Christian Baptist Church in Sepatan, Tangerang district, Banten Province to cease services. In West Java, officials closed the Huria Christian Protestant Batak Church (HKBP). This is the same "moderate" Islamic nation where three teenaged Christian girls were beheaded and Christian villages attacked and burned to the ground. Read more
