NEW May 5, 2010 CHAIRMAN'S REPORT NOW ONLINE- The May 5, 2010 Chairman's Report is now available online. This issue contains: Obama believes Muslims will love the "Great Satan" if Jerusalem is given to the Palestinians, so he promises a Palestinian state in two years.

JUST SHY OF HARRIET MIERS - When President George W. Bush nominated long time political ally and White House attorney Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court virtually every one on Capitol Hill including conservatives gasped. While a very nice person who was conservative and pro-life, Harriet Miers just did not have the judicial experience to become a Supreme Court Justice. Some compare President Obama's pick of Elena Kagan to that of Harriet Miers, but there is just one problem with that: Miers had more legal experience than Kagan. Virtually all of Elena Kagan's experience is academic in nature. Her main qualification is that she was a close buddy of Barak Obama at the Harvard School of Law. This is not an appointment of a qualified contender for such a high post, it is simple political pay back to an old friend. Forget about the fact that Kagan is a radical pro-abortion feminist who hates the military, she is simply too inexperienced. It takes more than reading ACLU one pagers to become a Justice. A former student of Kagan's, Carrie Severino, is exposing much of what is wrong with her record. You can read Carrie Severino material on Kagan at

FORMER MUSLIM SAYS OBAMA HURTING PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS - Obama says he seeks a dialogue with the Muslim world, but he has done nothing to protect the oppressed Christians, Sabatina James told the Christian Post. She has moved several times in the past few years seeking shelter from being murdered for converting from Islam. "You (President Obama) are saying these things about the prophet [Muhammad] but why don't you protect [Christians]? You're a Christian and have such influence," she said about Obama's speech in Cairo. James book, My Fight for Faith and Freedom is a bestseller in Germany. She has moved 16 times since 2001 because of death threats. Read more in the Christian Post

WASHINGTON POST PRO-RELIGIOUS FREEDOM? Thomas Farr wrote a piece in the Washington Post titled, "Obama at the crossroads on religious liberty." In the article he quoted Leonard Leo, chairman of the Commission on International Religious Freedom as saying: "If the United States cares about human rights, if we value international stability, if we are concerned about countering extremism, freedom of religion ... must be a critical component of our nation's diplomacy, national security and economic development objectives." Farr said that the Obama administration 'should pay close attention to these words as it decides how to position its own religious freedom policy.' This was an extremely important article that highlighted the abuses of religious minorities and women in Muslim nations and I highly recommend it. Read Farr article here. The posted responses to Farr's article are interesting as they are mostly from the liberals who read the Washington Post. The responses are an open window into the very strange mind set of liberals who see enforcing US immigration laws as racist but stoning women to death in Saudi Arabia as a normal cultural activity.

TEN COMMANDMENTS WEEKEND - For several years I have been working with Ron Wexler of the Ten Commandments Commission to officially declare the first weekend in May as Ten Commandments Weekend. For this purpose we have been working with various members of Congress. This year Congressman Paul Broun and 24 other congressmen co-sponsored H. Res. 1175 which "Celebrates the significant role the Ten Commandments have played in the development of public and private U.S. institutions," and "Encourages citizens of all faiths and religious persuasions to reflect on the impact that the Ten Commandments have had on the people and national character of the United States." Although it was not passed in time for this May, we can get it passed for next year. Please contact your congressman and ask him to contact Congressman Broun and co-sponsor H. Res 1175.

CANTOR STARTS "YOUCUT" SITE - Congressman Eric Cantor, the Republican Whip, is posting each week outrageous expenditures by our government and asking Americans to vote on dumping them from the budget. Cantor is one of the sharpest guys in the House and the YOUCUT site is a must for conservatives. Official YOUCUT site.

WATCH PENNSYLVANIA TUESDAY- This coming Tuesday, May 18th, there are primary elections in Arkansas, Kentucky, Oregon and Pennsylvania. So far in May a Republican Senator and a Democrat congressman have been booted out by their own party's voters. This could happen again in Pennsylvania if the Democrats reject turn-coat former Republican Senator Arlene Specter who is now trailing a liberal congressman. The same day there is a special election for the seat of deceased congressman John Murtha. Despite the fact that the district is 2 to 1 Democrat the polls show that Republican businessman Tim Burns could win the seat.

ATHEISTS CAN'T STOP INAUGURAL PRAYERS- Atheists, led by the notorious Michael Newdow have lost another round in the courts in their efforts to stop prayer and other religious elements during presidential inaugurations. This week a three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the dismissal of the atheist lawsuit that would have stopped Chief Justice Roberts from using the words "so help me God" in the inaugural oath. The atheists also wanted to stop ministers from praying at inaugurations. See Baptist Press

TYPO ALERT - I had to get this out on the run this weekend so if you see any typos just let me know at

MORE PERSECUTION IN IRAQ - At the beginning of May buses carrying Christian students were bombed near Mosul killing four and wounding more than 150. No action has been taken by authorities. The Assyrian News Agency is reporting that there is now a coordinated effort to drive Christians from the Mosul area by Muslim terrorist organizations. Of the 1,000,000 Christians in Iraq at the beginning of 2003 when the current war began only 400,000 remain and many of those have been driven from their homes. An IPS report details the plight of Christians who have fled Iraq completely an now live in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. (Note, there are some factual errors in the IPS report because most Iraqi Christian refugees do not register for fear of deportation. Including "undocumented" refugees there are over 100,000 Iraqi Christians in Jordan.)

OUR JUNE MISSION TO JORDAN - In June I will be traveling to the Middle East as part of a Religious Freedom Coalition mission to Iraqi Christian refugees. Funds are urgently needed for the medical portion of our mission which will deliver more than $50,000 in needed drugs to clinics. ALL FUNDS RECEIVED AT THIS INTERNET SITE IN MAY WILL BE USED FOR THE MISSION IN JUNE. Please help today
