OBAMA OFFICIAL APOLOGIZES TO CHINA FOR ARIZONA LAW - A State Department official apologized to Chinese officials for Arizona's attempt to enforce immigration laws. The official, Michael Posner, said that the Arizona law was part of a "troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination." And how does China deal with their own "immigration issues?" Chinese soldiers have "shoot to kill" orders in dealing with those escaping from North Korea into China. China has concentration camps for those caught in their nation illegally. The nation has virtually no political freedom and the Internet is censored. Instead of criticizing or condemning China's draconian policies, our State Department and the White House defend the Chinese government and their actions.

Arizona Republican Sens. Jon Kyl and John McCain sent a letter to Posner on Tuesday demanding he retract his statement and issue an apology to the people of Arizona. "As the assistant secretary of state in charge of the bureau of democracy and human rights, your remarks are particularly offensive," they wrote. "There is no place for moral equivalency in democracy and human rights policy. The United States is the world's leader in defending the rights of all people. Someone in your position should be proud to proclaim that." Read Politico article

CAN THEY READ AT ALL? - Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano admitted during congressional hearings that she has not read the Arizona immigration law she has been criticizing on national news shows. At the hearing she asserted that it was "bad law enforcement law" even though she had not read it and only "knew of it." Last week Attorney General Eric Holder also admitted at a congressional hearing that he had not read the law. This admission came after he said the Justice Department may sue to stop its enforcemnent. On TV news shows he said the law would violate rights and that it was a "slippery slope" toward racial profiling. Then State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley also admitted not reading a single word of the bill, while he defended under secretary Michael Posner's criticism of it. This leads us to a burning question: Does anyone in the Obama Administration read anything before they run to the media to talk about it? Obama never read a word of the Health Care bill while he was running around the country promoting it. This is a 'from the top down' problem in the Obama Administration.

PARENTAL RIGHTS - Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) this week introduced S.R. 519, a resolution opposing ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This is an effort by DeMint and several co-sponsors to derail the Obama administration efforts to ratify the CRC, which would erase all parental rights, even the right for parents to take their children to church. A committee of 18 non-American "experts" in Geneva would have the authority to issue rules binding American courts and even state legislatures. Because a treaty requires 67 votes in the Senate, only 34 signers to S.R. 519 are needed to stop this insane treaty that would give the power of determining the rearing of American children to foreign bureaucrats.

WOLF DEMANDS HEARINGS AS MOROCCO CRACKS DOWN ON CHRISTIANS - Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), a champion of religious liberties, has announced hearings on June 17th to investigate the violation of human rights in Morocco, a "moderate" Muslim nation. The deportation of approximately 40 American citizens and many other foreign nationals on charges of proselytism has raised concerns about the status of religious freedom in Morocco. Those deported ran a wide array of humanitarian organizations including orphanages. The Village of Hope, an orphanage that takes in children who have been abandoned by their parents, was one of the targets. Time Magazine reported that "the Village of Hope deportations are part of what appears to be a widespread crackdown on Christian aid workers in Morocco." Meanwhile Congressman Wolf has demanded that the State Department issue a travel advisory for Morocco and suspend some funding. See Wolf letter to Sec. Clinton

SUPREME COURT USES UNSIGNED TREATY - In the Congress section above, I related the problems inherent in the Convention of the Rights of the Child treaty (CRC) which the US has not yet ratified. Setting a very bad precedent, this week by a 6 to 3 vote, the Supreme Court used the CRC in a ruling stating that it was unconstitutional to sentence a juvenile to life in prison without parole in non-homicide cases. The Court cited the CRC and other international law in its decision. Michael Farris, head of the Home School Legal Defense Association said, "It is bad enough for the Supreme Court to engage in judicial activism. It is far worse when the justices employ international law in support of their far-reaching edicts. We have not ratified the UN child's rights treaty-its provisions should not be finding their way into Supreme Court decisions." Read more at HSLDA site

GAY HONESTY IN BRAZIL - The undisputed leader of the homosexual movement in Brazil, Luiz Mott, said on national TV, "I am an ex-heterosexual in the same way that there are ex-gays, people that were not 100% homosexual. They had some experiences, did not like them and then joined the other side." He further admitted that homosexuals are not born that way by saying, "Usually I say, we need you heterosexuals, we love you so that you may reproduce children to become homosexuals..." I wish American homosexuals were as honest. They relentlessly persecute anyone who publicly proclaims that homosexuality is a choice, not a genetic condition. Maybe Obama's pick for the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan can come out with a statement on the subject during her confirmation hearings.

THE REBECCA PROJECT - The Rebecca Project has a new video on child sex trafficking that shows how Craig's List is used to sell young girls. This year Craig's List will make $36 million selling sex ads. The video is just six minutes and is excellent. View here.

BITTER CRACK DOWN IN MOROCCO - In the past few weeks Morocco has ordered the expulsion of 23 Christian foreigners, including one American. This is in addition to the 40 workers that have already been expelled this year. Morocco claims that Muslims are being converted to Christianity as a result of the presence of the aid workers, some of whom have been there for decades. Many of those expelled work in orphanages.

OBLITERATING IRAQ'S CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY - Nina Shea, who serves on the Commission for International Religious Freedom, has written a new op-ed that should be read by every church leader and politician in America. One powerful paragraph says: "Relentless waves of bombings, assassinations, kidnappings, extortions and rapes have triggered a mass exodus of Christians from Iraq over the past seven years. Since 2003, over half of the estimated 1.5 million Iraqi Chaldean Catholics, Assyrian, Syriac Orthodox, and Armenian Christians, as well as some Protestants have fled to Syria, Jordan and farther flung places. While only 3 or 4 percent of Iraq's pre-2003 population, they account for 40 percent of its refugees, the UN reported." Read full article.
