ACLJ: President Obama’s Supreme Court opportunity

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice, in an e-mail to subscribers, writes a word of warning concerning the new vacancy on the Supreme Court:

President Obama is likely to name a nominee who will embrace an extremely liberal judicial philosophy.”

The ACLJ further writes that whoever the nominee is should be subjected to detailed and thorough questions about his or her judicial philosophy.

They write, “It’s what the American people expect and deserve!”

ACLJ: Time to start over on health care

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice argues that it is time to start over on the issue of health care reform.

The ACLJ has also developed unveiled its legal analysis of President Obama’s plan.

Liberty Counsel issues report on Obama’s “radical nominees”

by D. Bennett

The Liberty Counsel has issued a press release announcing a report containing information on more than 1o0 individuals President Obama has nominated or appointed to key positions in the government. The report, according to the Counsel, “documents the beliefs, words and actions of more than 100 radicals that Obama has hand-picked to “change” our nation.”

“President Obama has chosen,” the Counsel writes, ‘the most radical group of ideologues ever assembled by an American President.”

The 72-page report contains background information on each individual, as well as policy stances and quotations the Counsel finds particularly troublesome.

During a recent radio program Sen. Arlen Specter was unable to get a word in while his colleague Rep. Michelle Bachmann and reportedly told her to “act like a lady.” The AFA wonders if Specter has ever said anything similar to a male colleague.

The AFA reports that Pelosi feels that the House does not have the votes necessary to pass the Senate version of health care reform and they will have to go back to the drawing board.  The AFA responds, “Good riddance.”

Elijah Friedeman transcribes Scott Brown’s response when asked if he had considered running for President. While Brown’s answer was very well measured, it did not rule out the possibility.

Tasha Easterling notes that Glenn Beck is criticizing Scott Brown for some offhand comments he made about his daughters, mentioning that they were ‘on the market’. Beck compared that behavior to that of disgraced Representative Gary Condit.

Friedeman also mentions recent comments made by Keith Olbermann when he insinuated that Massachusetts voters are racist because they voted against the policies of the Obama administration.

Finally, Jerry Richardson goes on a long discourse using biblical passages to repudiate the Obama administration, believing him to be arrogant and calling him a ‘fool’.

Mike Adams is angered that the Republicans have given up the black vote so easily, and argue that those who are ‘pro-choice’ are actually opposed to choice. He writes, “Libertarians should be opposed to abortion because of their love for the individual and his right to make choices. If not, he should be opposed to abortion because of his hatred for the Democrats and their propensity to grow governments.”

David Limbaugh also criticizes Pres. Obama for his giveaway to the unions by not taxing their Cadillac health care plans at a cost of over 60 billion dollars.

Tasha Easterling reports that Keith Olbermann went on a tirade against Scott Brown calling him a number of names and has yet to apologize for his remarks.

The AFA lauds the recent effort by Pro Life groups to protest the opening of a Planned Parenthood ‘super-center’ in Texas. According to Tasha Easterling over 10,000 Christians showed up to protest and pray or the center to be unable to open its doors.

The AFA urges the President to open up health care negotiations, which he promised he would do 8 times during his campaign. They ask their readership to contact their elected officials.

The AFA is upset over an episode of ‘The Simpsons’ in which Homer travels to Israel and believes he has become the Messiah. They believe this to be derogatory to the Christian faith and asks it readership to contact Fox and ask that this episode never be aired.

Elijah Friedeman tells Republicans to not start celebrating victory in Massachusetts yet and encourages them to vote to ensure Brown wins the special election.  Friedeman also criticizes Coakley for asking for votes at a MLK day memorial. Jeremy Wiggins also notes that there have been left wing groups who have been utilizing robocalls that spread false information to dissuade voters from casting their ballot for Brown.

Matt Friedeman takes a piece from RealClearPolitics to explain why Obama’s approval ratings have fallen so sharply. The reasons listed are: not being post partisan, allowing Reid and Pelosi to run the legislative branch, and pursuing an agenda that does not fit the times.

David Limbaugh writes an essay criticizing Obama’s foreign policy believing that it appeases terrorists and does not address the key issues of the war on terror.

Finally the AFA publishes an email sent from a PhD student in political science who feels that the textbooks are biased and wonders if he can continue his studies in such a hostile environment.

Liberty Counsel: Back in the USSR?

by D. Bennett

The Liberty Counsel has posted criticism of President Obama and Democratic leadership in Congress, likening the Democrats’ decision to hold discussions over health care reform behind closed doors to the tactics of the Soviet Union.

“President Obama and the Democratic leadership are trying to exclude the American people from important information regarding healthcare,” the Counsel writes, “like the former Soviet Union tried to control the media and shut out public participation.”

The Counsel also argues that the closed door meetings are evidence that President Obama has abandoned his campaign pledge of transparency in government.

Invoking the language of President Reagan the Counsel writes, “Contact the White House and ask the President to fulfill his promise of transparency and tear down the wall of secrecy that surrounds the health care debate.”

Traditional Values Coalition

The TVC reported on an incident on a flight where Sen. Chuck Schumer argued with a flight attendant about turning off his cell phone,  (the permalink to this page was not working), criticized climate change expert Al Goreacle for erroneous statements, and criticized President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid for going “on one of the wildest spending binges in American history.”

An email from the TVC asked for “tax deductible” donations, and a second email linked to articles on TVC’s website.

Family Research Council

by Jessica Bryan

The FRC discussed  using adult stem cells to treat for multiple sclerosis, reflected on Lee Eaton who recently passed away, posted on the “coffee is good for you” stories, compared the Christmas specials from Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson, posted a “New video exposé of U.S. Department of Education Safe & Drug-Free Schools “Czar” Kevin Jennings,” discussed the expansion of legal prostitution in Nevada to include male prostitutes, reported on results from a survey indicating that “adults who attend religious services at least weekly are more likely to report that being married is personally very important to them than those who worship less frequently,” wrote about the “realities” of foreign policy and how it is different from President Obama’s “utopian” idealism, commented on Kevin Jennings and the group Media Matters who is defending him, commented on how the “mainstream media is spinning the Pope’s World Day of Peace message” and incompletely reporting on his stance on environmentalism, talked about mending bones using adult stem cells, and criticized the Federal Trade Commission‘s for filing a suit against Intel for anti-competitive practices.

A Washington Update email from the FRC discussed Sen. Harry Reid’s effort to expand Medicare to people aged 55 and over, argued that “the Omnibus marks the first direct government-sponsored abortion bill of 2010,” listed some of the taxes included in Sen. Reid’s health care bill, and advertised a “Stop the Abortion Mandate” broadcast and the deal with the Christian Values Network to donate to the FRC when you shop through their online “portal.”

A second Washington Update from the group commented on the health care reform effort by Democrats, argued that “it can be stopped,” and advertised their “PrayerCast.”  The group also discussed the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act and efforts by the D.C. City Council to legalize gay marriage, and commented on the cost of expanding Medicare.

A third Washington Update reported that President Obama has reached out to Sen. Bob Casey to “draft an abortion compromise that will win over Sen. Ben Nelson’s (D-Nebr.) support for health care before Christmas,” criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to travel to the Copenhagen climate talks, commented on the AARP and Sen. Reid’s effort to close the gap in Medicare prescription coverage, and again advertised their “PrayerCast,”

In a final Washington Update the FRC criticized supposed tax-payer funded abortion included in the 2010 omnibus bill that was signed into law yesterday, commented on Sen. Nelson’s rejection of Sen. Casey’s proposed new language on abortion funding in health care reform, and argued that the “real agenda of radical environmentalism” is “population control.”

The group also sent out an email reminder to watch their “PrayerCast.”  The email included this message:

Tonight, December 16, FRC Action and The Call to Conscience will host a live video webcast entitled “An FRC Action PrayerCast: Government Takeover of Healthcare”. Beginning at 8:30 p.m. (EST), this PrayerCast will feature a powerful line-up of speakers, including:

  • Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council Action

  • Hon. Michele Bachmann, United States Congresswoman, Minnesota
  • Bishop Harry Jackson, President, High Impact Leadership Coalition

Tasha Easterling passes along statements made by Texas Gov. Rick Perry who distanced himself from Al Gore and noted that the current climate change legislation will prove to be extremely costly to future generations and is based on bad science.

David P. Smith criticizes Pres. Obama for his pledge of transparency during the campaign, one which he hasn’t maintained since he was sworn in. He concludes, “It sounds like the same, old, “bait and switch” trick. I think many people are realizing they have been deceived, and it’s not from a friend telling them the truth.”

Matt Friedeman notes that there is a story being floated by the Weekly Standard that indicates the White House will push for the closure of an Air Force Base in Sen. Ben Nelson’s home state if he does not fall in line with health care reform legislation. Jeremy Wiggins notes the same item in another post.

A leftist website held a design contest for health care reform, with the winning entry featuring a heart in Washington D.C. with arteries and veins branching out to the rest of the country. Friedeman writes, “Liberals think America is centered around D.C., not main street America. That’s why we have this monstrosity of a government-perpetuating, tax-increasing, freedom-stealing bill.”

Elijah Friedeman mentions an interesting juxtaposition going on in Copenhagen during the climate change conference. While the issue on the table is global warming the temperatures in Denmark are unusually frigid. He writes, “It’s hard to take the global warming alarmists seriously when they are holding a summit in the midst of sub-zero tempatures.”

Finally, E. Friedeman passes along some recent antics on the Senate floor where Sen. Coburn demanded that an amendment to health care reform be read aloud by the Senate clerk, which was estimated to take over 38 hours. After 3 hours of reading the Senator who introduced the legislation, Bernie Sanders of Vermont withdrew the amendment.

The AFA urges its readers to contact their Senators today as they believe that the current version of health care reform is on the ropes. The current revision that would expand Medicare is not viable to many and the AFA believes this is an opportunity for constituents to make their voices heard.

Jeremy Wiggins informs readers that a New Jersey woman who was comatose after having an abortion procedure has won her lawsuit against the provider for nearly $2 million. Wiggins believes this demonstrates how dangerous abortions truly are.

In a recent interview Pres. Obama gave his first year in office a B+, Elijah Friedeman disagrees giving him a D+ instead.

Friedeman also passes along recent Rasmussen numbers that indicate Pres. Obama’s approval has fallen to an all time low. He is puzzled as to the specific reason for this decline, possibly pointing to health care reform.

Matt Friedeman mentions that a Chinese official in Copenhagen at the environment conference advocated for their one child policy. He writes, “But these radical views on birth control as a means to help the environment aren’t confined to Communist nations. People in America are starting to suggest similar ideas.” He names Sec. Clinton as an example.

Matt Friedeman is perplexed and intrigued by a Christianity Today article which indicates that there is a growing movement of Messianic Muslims. He views the movement with skepticism and hope.

Jerry Richardson believes that Pres. Obama’s current position on Afghanistan is full of ambiguities, scapegoating, and hedging his bets.

Bryan Fischer argues that the Constitution only permits Christians to serve for the federal government, what it does not allow however is for discrimination based on denomination. He writes in summary, “Clearly, then the point of Article VI in the federal Constitution was to allow all Christians of whatever denomination – “whether protestant, or catholic, or presbyterian or episcopalian, &c.” – to serve in the national government. Rather than being an anti-Christian plank, it was an explicitly pro-Christian plank, affirming the different manifestations of Christianity in all its varied hues, and an expression of tolerance and inclusivity for members of all Christian faiths.”

Family Research Council

by Jessica Bryan

The FRC discussed the woman who attempted to “use a chemical abortifacient to kill a woman’s baby,” posted “science-themed Christmas cookies” and the world’s smallest snowman, talked about treating sickle cell anemia with adult stem cells, argued that President Obama should have turned down the Nobel Peace Prize, discussed adult stem cell treatment for the cornea of the eye,  treating Alzheimer disease with adult stem cells, and talked about a new book about using adult stem cells to treat heart disease.

The group also discussed the so-called “slippery slope” argument that legalizing gay marriage would lead to legalization of “pedophile, incestuous, and (especially) polygamous marriages,” and possibly to marriages of people to pets, dead people, and inanimate objects like robots (i.e. Stepford Wives).

In a Washington Update email, the group criticized spending of the stimulus money and Obama’s push to pass another stimulus bill, discussed the decision to not vote on a gay marriage bill in New Jersey, talked about the uses of adult stem cells, and “marriage penalties” in health care reform.

In a second Washington Update, the FRC criticized the 2010 Omnibus bill, noted their own effort to stop “Obamacare,” talked about the recent development in health care reform that would “allow insurance companies to place annual limits on the dollar value of medical care, as long as those limits are not ‘unreasonable,'” and advertised their Washington Watch Weekly radio show.

An FRC Action email advertised the upcoming live webcast entitled “An FRC Action PrayerCast: Government Takeover of Healthcare.”

ERLC and Richard Land

by  Jessica Bryan

The most recent ERLC posts included a discussion comparing abortion in the U.S. to a holocaust and arguing that there are three victims of an abortion, linked to an analysis of abortion statistics, and argued that humans are an endangered species because of abortion.

On his show, Richard Land discussed the “Fight for Life” at both the beginning and end of life, Nelson Mandela and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and President Obama, and lastly Ahmadinejad’s “evil regime” and health care reform.

American Family Association

Tasha Easterling reports some recent findings from Pew which finds that many Americans blend different religions together to create their own brand of spirituality. Easterling writes, “Christians have gotten away from the Biblical truth that there is only one way to salvation.  It is more comfortable and popular to believe that there are many ways to God and they are all correct (a la Oprah) than to believe that Jesus is the only way”

Jeremy Wiggins is upset with some recent statements made by Pres. Obama in a bipartisan meeting of Congress when he told the Republicans to quit trying to scare the American public about the current health care reform proposal.

Matt Friedeman believes that the Tiger Woods scandal will not ruin his career and could make him more popular than ever. In another post Friedeman highlights an article that compares Tiger Woods and Barack Obama saying both have been whitewashed to create a positive public image. Woods’ skeletons have been revealed and Obama’s could soon be on the way.

Friedeman is also worried about the latest changes to the health care reform proposal which would eliminate the public option but drastically increase the scope of Medicare. Rep. Anthony Weiner applauds the move as a significant step toward a single payer system.

Bryan Fischer is upset with ‘safe schools’ czar Kevin Jenning’s reading list. Summarizing the list, Fischer writes, “Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air”

Matt Friedeman passes along a recent report from the Washington Post that concludes the U.S. national debt is larger than the net worth of all Americans combined.

Elijah Friedeman rehashes some of the debate between his columns of those of Bryan Fischer by noting that leading Muslims have argued that Nadal Hasan must repent for his actions because they were specifically in violation of the Quran, an idea that is contradictory to Fischer’s belief that Islam is a violent religion.

Chuck Norris writes a lengthy article in response to Sen. Obama’s trip to Copehagen, which he believes to be a waste of time. He cites the hacked emails of climate scientists as well as the fact that no treaty has been completed before the trip for Pres. Obama to sign when he arrives.  Janet Porter is also upset with Al Gore and some of the claims he is making. She believes Gore to be a hypocrite because the Tennessee EPA cites him as the number one polluter in the state because of a tin mine on his property.

Elijah Friedeman pokes fun at Jeremy Olson who threw a tomato at Sarah Palin during her book tour. His throw was off however and actually hit a policemen providing security. Olson was charged with assaulting a police officer.

E. Friedeman also notes that the Gallup tracking poll has Pres. Obama’s approval at 47%, a new low for this administration. Spokesman Robert Gibbs questioned the reliability of the poll.

The Roman Catholic church in Scotland has declared that the hokey pokey is officially off limits to its parishioners as it was originally called ‘the hocus pocus’.

Matt Friedeman notes a recent article Christianity Today that addresses the question of what the church should do with sex offenders. Friedeman writes, “Whatever churches decide, there must be a balance between grace and accountability.”

Friedeman is also upset that Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid compared those opposed to health care reform to those who opposed the abolition of slavery. He writes, “You would think Democrats would get tired of using the same old “Republicans are racist” put down.”

Friedeman also writes that he agrees with the Wall Street Journal when it says that Pres. Obama should give his Nobel Peace Prize to Shirin Ebadi who had her medal confiscated by the Iranian government.

E. Friedeman notes the hypocrisy of the Copenhagen Climate Summit as it will create tremendous amounts of greenhouse gases through the use of planes and limos to get dignitaries to the conference.

E. Friedeman also reports that the TEA party actually beats the GOP in a 3 way generic ballot for 2012. He writes, “The scariest thing about this poll for a Republican loyalist is the fact that close to the same number of Republicans say that they would vote for a TEA party candidate over a Republican candidate.”

Jeremy Wiggins also embeds a video of an undercover investigation in to Planned Parenthood that shows them committing numerous violations of state and federal law.

American Family Association

Matt Friedeman writes about a recent study conducted on the pornography viewing habits of males. The researchers encountered a problem when they tried to find men who had not viewed pornography. Their entire sample had watched pornography at one point and many partook on a daily basis. Friedeman writes, “This is simply outrageous, but in our sex-saturated sulture, not entirely surprising.”

In the “Prophecy Matters” segment the AFA argues that the American public is in favor of supporting Israel, while the government does not. The author writes, “Sadly, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton show their contempt for the Scriptures by squeezing Israel. This painful reality also shows me that the biblical prophecies that look toward a day in the final period of world history when the international community will get fed-up with Israel…are further proof that the Bible is all true.”

Bryan Fischer takes exception with a recent article made by Warren Cole Smith which advocates a conscientious objector status in the war on Christmas. Fischer believes that this is ceding the battle to secular fundamentalists.

Bryan Fischer also objects to the way that the mainstream media handled a recent incident on a flight from Atlanta to Houston. Apparently there were a dozen Muslim men on the plane who were causing a disturbance with their electronic devices. One man refused to hang up his cell phone call even when prompted by the flight attendants and pilot. The AP failed to report the ethnicity of the men in question. Fischer writes, “It is only a matter of time before political correctness (note the airbrushing of the incident in the mainstream media above) kills another planeload of passengers as well as innocents living and working on the ground.”

The AFA notes that Pres. Obama used the phrase Christmas tree twice as well as ending his remarks by wishing the audience Merry Christmas.

Fischer also notes that 26 Asian students were beaten by their white and black counterparts. This was not referred to by police or the media as a hate crime, when black on white or the white on black incidents would undoubtedly be treated as such. Fischer writes,

This incident shows the silliness and the injustice of “hate crimes” laws. If the same criminal activity had been carried out by whites on blacks, the NAACP, the Rev. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would already be in full howl, press conferences would be held, bullhorns brandished, and all we’ be hearing about is how racist America is, our sad legacy of slavery and how much we need special punishments for race-based crimes to purge the soul of the nation.

The AFA notes the humor in a recent Al Gore speech on global warming being canceled because of likelihood of freezing rain. Politico refers to this as the Gore Effect.

Fischer also notes that sex changes might become the next battleground in equal rights.

ERLC and Richard Land

by Jessica Bryan

The ERLC discussed legislation in the House that would grant domestic partnership benefits to federal employees and their partners (Richard Land and the ERLC are opposed to this legislation),  criticized the D.C. City Council vote to legalize gay marriage in the district and also talked about other movements toward legalization in other states,  and conveyed Richard Land’s hope for Obama’s new Afghanistan plan as well as concern for the troops since Obama did not approve as many troops as Gen. McChrystal requested.

On his show, Richard Land talked to Cal Beisner about climate change and also discussed “creation care,” asked “Did socialism land in the green movement?” and discussed “greenies” and “socialists” and Al Gore.

American Family Association

by R. Burge

Elijah Friedeman uses US Weekly to make a claim that Angelina Jolie dislikes Pres. Obama and calls him a socialist who is more concerned with handouts than self improvement.

Friedeman also mentions statements made by Matthew Dowd where he indicates that Sarah Palin has a chance of gaining the Republican nomination in 2012. Friedeman hopes that this does not occur, he writes, “Not because I disagree with Palin’s views, but because I know Palin isn’t ready to be president. For some reason people have been conditioned to think that serving several years as governor of a small state (at least in regards to population) qualifies her to be president of the United States and leader of the free world. Craziness. That’s makes about as much sense as electing a first-term Senator to be president. Just look where that’s gotten us.” A quick post by the AFA also notes the brisk sales of Palin’s new book.

The AFA reports recent findings by Rasmussen that indicates Pres. Obama’s declining approval numbers.

Finally, Crane Durham writes that he is thankful for the overwhelming protest by the American public to the recent policy initiatives proposed by Congress.

ACLJ: Justice Dept. putting national security at risk

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice sent an e-mail to subscribers Friday, urging them to oppose the Department of Justice’s plans to try five 9/11 conspirators in civilian courts.

“Rarely does one decision carry as many national security ramifications,” the e-mail states, “as the recent decision by President Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to give the terrorist mastermind of the 9/11 attacks full due process rights and access to our domestic criminal courts.”

The ACLJ’s e-mail urged supporters to sign a petition voicing their opposition to the DOJ’s proposal.

ADF: Conservatives consider filibustering judicial nominee

by D. Bennett

The Alliance Defense Fund reports that some conservative activists are considering recommending a filibuster of Judge David Hamilton, currently nominated by President Obama for a post on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Certain conservative actors have already drafted a letter urging Republican senators to filibuster Judge Hamilton, citing his alleged judicial activism as reason to fight his nomination.

American Family Association

by R. Burge

As part of their annual boycott the AFA is asking readers to not do business at Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic because of their refusal to use the word Christmas in their advertising. In another post the AFA passes along their “Naughty or Nice” list of online retailers who use Christmas in their advertising.

Elijah Friedeman mentions Pres. Obama’s recent trip to Japan, specifically the bow that Obama gave to Japanese leader Emperor Akihito.  Friedeman writes, “It may be proper to bow to the emperor if you are a Japanese citizen, but it is completely unacceptable for the president of the United States to bow”

The AFA also criticizes a recent press release from the Obama administration touting the successes of the stimulus package. Many of the examples of jobs saved are highly questionable and potentially misleading.

The AFA’s Bryan Fischer continues to write about the issue of Muslims in the military. Taking a somewhat different approach Fischer notes that in many Muslim circles there is an internal debate about whether Muslims should serve in the U.S. military. Fischer concludes, “Perhaps the kindest thing a Christian nation can do for Muslims is to protect them from this terrible moral dilemma by excusing them altogether from service in the U.S. military.”

In an analysis by Jerry Richardson he contends that the biggest flaw or liberal thought is that it does not face reality.  Instead the author believes that liberals are consistently idealists and cannot face the harsh world in which Americans live. The example that Richardson uses is the recent Ft. Hood tragedy in which Pres. Obama is unwilling to face the horrors of jihad. He concludes, “It is dangerous that we have a President who wishes to avoid reality. It is catastrophic that we have a President who lacks the moral clarity to call out the evil of terrorism.”

Finally, the AFA embeds a video highlight the schisms occurring in the Catholic Church.

 

Family Research Council

by Jessica Bryan

The FRC criticized the FBI for not “swooping in” when they saw the emails between “the terrorist Hasan” and “a jihadist imam in Yemen,” criticized NARAL and Planned Parenthood for threatening not to fund two congressmen because of their votes on the Stupak Amendment, criticized the Democrats for not being able to identify a place in the Constitution that gives Congress the authority to mandate that Americans buy health insurance, criticized Obama for not creating jobs and listed some suggestions for how to create jobs.

A Washington Update email from the FRC discussed the symbolism and creation of Veteran’s Day, voiced opposition to Judge Hamilton’s nomination and urged subscribers to do the same, and criticized the health care bill for helping veterinarians but not doing much for veterans.

A second Washington Update email from the group criticized the D.C. City Council for voting legislation out of committee without creating exemptions for religious organizations, criticized the AMA for its “liberal agenda,” and discussed the penalties for not having health insurance under the current health care reform bill.

A third Washington Update email criticized end-of-life consultations in the current health care bill, discussed the start of the FRC’s new awareness campaign called “Adult Stem Cells Saved My Life,” Lou Dobbs’ retirement, and advertised FRC Radio’s Washington Watch Weekly.

Richard Land

by Jessica Bryan

On Richard Land Live, Land discussed ” Ft. Hood shooting and the 9/11 trials moving to NY,” Obama’s delay on making a decision about the war in Afghanistan,  and the recently passed health care bill and abortion.

Focus on the Family

by Jessica Bryan

Focus posted about a commentary by  in the Washington Times ADF President Alan Sears about the Obama Administration’s lack of action against the pornography industry. 

The group also commented on the supposed “pro-life” amendment offered by “pro-life” Rep. Brad Ellsworth (Democrat) with little objections from other Democrats; Focus argued that “you know there’s something amiss when pro-abortion Democrats have zero objections to a “pro-life” amendment.” 

Focus discussed Obama’s troubled appellate court nomination of Judge Hamilton and asked readers to contact their representative and ask him or her to vote “no” on Hamilton’s nomination.  The group also reported some statistics about how American’s view pornography and argued that the fight against pornography is “still a winnable war.”

An email from Focus discussed Tuesday’s election results, arguing that “The off-year elections were ‘an unmistakable rebuke of Democrats.”

American Family Association

by R. Burge

An action alert by the AFA asks readers to contact their representatives and ask them to remove any federal funding for abortion from any health reform bill.

The AFA speaks out against the recent passage of hate crimes legislation which they liken to the ‘thought police.’ The results of this new law is,  “We’ll see them target a preacher in the not too distant future and then get someone to implicate their preaching as a cause for their behavior choice of being a criminal toward someone who is a homosexual.”

The AFA also criticizes the Obama administration’s war with Fox News. They argue that leaders should embrace criticism not run from it. They write, “President Obama should end on this pathetic media strategy and evaluate why his policies are rejected when scrutinized.”

Another post uses the example of the H1N1 vaccine as indicative of how the federal government would handle national health insurance.

Finally, the AFA is disappointed in the way that Fox News recently covered a news story in which a father ran over his daughter in his car because she was not living up to “Iraqi values.” The AFA is perplexed why they did not report that the father’s major grievance was his daughter’s failure to live up to his Muslim faith.

Al Mohler: A new view on divorce

by Ruth Moon

A new study on divorce in the United States provides previously unknown demographic information and indicators for divorce, and a researcher chronicles the growing “divorce divide” between lower and upper class marriages in the U.S., which Mohler calls “a national tragedy with enduring pernicious effects.”

Obama opened the door to several questionable kinds of sexual expression with his comments on the recent hate crimes bill that America should be “a nation in which we’re all free to live and love as we see fit.”

American Family Association

by R. Burge

A post by the AFA notes that the Governor of Kentucky Steve Beshear is not putting up a Christmas Tree on the Capital lawn. They encourage people to contact him and demand that he have the tree erected as per tradition. Another case is highlighted in Macomb County, Michigan where a private Nativity scene is asked to be removed by a public official.

Another posts embeds a recent ad by the Republican National Committee.

The AFA also criticizes the Cash for Clunkers program, saying it is a perfect example of government waste.

They also point out that one of the ad finalist for the Democratic National Committees contest for health care spots features a desecrated American flag and implies that it is offensive.

The AFA also chastises Pres. Obama for the number of rounds of golf he has played while in office, saying it far surpasses the golfing excursions by President Bush.

Finally, the AFA wants their readership to know where their representatives stand on the recent hate crimes legislation that was just signed in to law.

ERLC

by Jessica Bryan

The ERLC discussed the recently passed hate crimes legislation and it’s potential effect on Christians, the Southern Baptist Convention’s opposition to gay marriage, and President Obama’s signing of the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act which includes a hate crimes amendment.

Focus on the Family

by Jessica  Bryan

Focus discussed a new separation of church and state lawsuit,  President Obama’s early promise that health care reform legislation would not fund abortions, satirized health care reform in game-show form, and talked about students’ reactions to the Ruth Institute marriage conference that took place in August.

An email from Focus discussed the recent bust of the child sex slavery ring.

American Family Association

by R. Burge

The AFA reports that Neocutis, a skin care company is using fetal stem cells in some of its anti-aging products. They write, “Not only are these companies advocating the destruction of human life, but they are exploiting that life to make a profit! When did we stoop so low in this country?”

The AFA also passes on recent poll numbers that show support for Pres. Obama is dropping.

The AFA continues to highlight the back and forth between the White House and the Fox News channel, relaying recent statements made by Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The AFA also encourages its readers to impress upon their children the biblical foundations that the United States is based on, not simply allow the public school system to push its revisionist version of events.

Finally the AFA describes a satirical scenario whereby discarded stem cells are turned into protein shakes to be sold to the American consumer. This is an attempt to highlight the hypocrisy of abortion that the AFA perceives.

 

TVC

by Jessica Bryan

Lafferty’s latest post is about President Obama and “progressive legislators'” supposed secrecy and “closed door” dealings about health care.
