The Presidency
SequesterScareThe Sequester Scare part 2- At midnight last night the sequester took effect, and the United States did not collapse as President Obama said it would. The military has not been shut down and there are no five hour delays at airports. Obama even released hundreds of convicted felons illegally in the United States to scare the American people into backing his tax increases. None of it worked. Why? There are no real cuts in spending in the sequester. The cuts were made only to the proposed increases in spending for 2012.
Direct aid to terrorists – Unhappy that the black flag of jihad is not flying over Damascus, the Obama Administration is now considering direct military aid to the two year old jihadist rebellion against the secular government of Syria. Obama claims the “sequester” has destroyed the readiness of our military, but at the same time says he can somehow find tens of millions of dollars to arm the “rebels” in Syria who are trying to overthrow the secular government there.
See no Saudi evil – Last week I reported on the arrests of 53 Ethiopian Christians in Saudi Arabia for the “crime” of praying in private. The White House seems to approve of the arrests of the Christians, while condemning the arrest of an anarchist band in Russia after they defiled the altar of a church. I wrote a lengthy op-ed on the Administration’s support of intolerance and evil in Saudi Arabia which has appeared in several places including WND.COM. See my column here – Three minute video version below – Please share!
Congress
Congressman speaks out on Saudi evil – So far only one lawmaker has spoken up about the latest abuse of Christians by the Saudi Arabia monarchy/dictatorship. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, (R-NE), who sits on the Caucus on Religious Minorities in the Middle East said, “Nations that wish to be a part of the responsible nations of the world must see the protection of religious freedom and the principles of reason as an essential part of the duty of the state.” Read more
Muslim congressman spokesman for racist group – Congressman Keith Ellison refuses to explain his association with the anti-Semitic, anti-white Nation of Islam. Newspaper reports from the 1990’s indicate Ellison was an activist for Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, even speaking on behalf of the controversial group as a “representative.” During his first campaign for Congress, Ellison claimed he had never been a Nation of Islam member.

Prayer Caucus fights abortion mandate – The Congressional Prayer Caucus, founded by Rep. Randy Forbes, has recently filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in support of Hobby Lobby’s challenge to the abortion mandate in Obamacare. The abortion mandate forces Christian-run businesses like Hobby Lobby to provide abortion, contraceptives, and sterilization resources to their employees. Read more

20th Anniversary of first WTC attack – This week marked 20 years since the first Islamic jihad attack on the World Trade Center. The first Islamic attack on the WTC killed six and injured over a thousand. Just eight years later, the second Islamic attack on the WTC brought down the towers killing 2977. From these attacks the American establishment has learned nothing and the demise of Western civilization may be the result. Read more
