Promoting "God's Holy Values and American Freedoms"!
A leader's job is to look into the future and see the organization, not as it is, but as it should be. -- Jack Welch
"Daily Devotions" (KJV and/or NLT)
"My sheep listen to My voice; I know them and they follow Me." (John 10:27)
In Scripture we read of many times when people hear from God in dramatic ways; but most of the time, the voice of God is soft and subtle. Please do not miss His voice by assuming it must be loud and dramatic.
Very often we come to God with rather dramatic questions: "Is this the person I should marry?" Or, "Is that the life vocation you desire me to choose?" How convenient it would be for us if God would simply write His answer in the clouds. How we long to hear an audible voice, or see a stroke of lightning that etches His directions upon a tree.
Most certainly God knows everything and He wants us to come to Him with our questions. But God is not interested in simple convenience. He wants us to know Him as our friend and Lord. He desires that we know Him well enough to learn to hear His still, small voice, even when it is as gentle as a whisper. True friendship is never quick or convenient. We must work at it over a long period of time.
Perhaps God's message for you will become evident in a deep study of His Word. Perhaps you will hear it in the wise counsel of a friend. Perhaps it will emerge through long, searching times of prayer and fellowship with Him. He wants us to know Him well and to love Him deeply. The Holy Spirit helps us do that.

"[T]he opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their, own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch." -- Thomas Jefferson
"[T]here are certain qualifications to being a Supreme Court Justice. The chief qualifications are impartiality between parties and deference to the Constitution as written. And while judges like Sotomayor can lie and mouth slogans, their legal positions betray their true judicial philosophies." -- columnist Ben Shapiro
"With the Sotomayor nomination, [Obama] is introducing the threat that justice will be administered differently for politically favored groups than for politically unfavored groups. The rule of law will be replaced by the rule of a judge's emotional empathy -- or antipathy -- as determined by what subjective 'perspective' the judge chooses to see. That's what is at stake in the Sotomayor nomination, and it has huge consequences for our lives and prosperity." -- columnist Robert Tracinski
Using conservative language to push a liberal nomination through: "Judge Sotomayor puts rule of law above everything else. Given her extensive and even-hand record, I'm not sure how any member of this panel can sit here today and seriously suggest that she comes to the bench with a personal agenda." -- Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) **"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." -- Sotomayor
"We are a country bound together by our Constitution. It guarantees the promise that ours will be a country based on the rule of law. In her service as a federal judge, Sonia Sotomayor has kept faith with that promise. She understands that there is not one law for one race or another. There is not one law for one color or another. There is not one law for rich and a different one for poor. There is only one law." -- Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) **"Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences, our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging." -- Sotomayor
Now and then: "In the past month, many Senators have asked me about my judicial philosophy. It is simple: fidelity to the law. The task of a judge is not to make the law -- it is to apply the law." -- Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor in direct contradiction to statements she has made in the past **For example, "[The] court of appeals is where policy is made. And I know -- I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don't make law. I know. Okay, I know. I'm not promoting it. I'm not advocating it. I'm -- you know." -- Sotomayor in 2005

Why President Obama is in a hurry to get health care passed
I thought you would be interested in the article by Ben Stein printed below. As Mr. Stein says, our freedoms are on the line. Call your Representative today and tell him or her that you oppose the Obama health care bill.
The House will be voting on this bill probably early this week. So your call now is very important. The number is 202-224-3121. That is the Capitol Switchboard. Ask to speak with your Representative and you will be put through. If you don't know your Representative, give your Zip Code and they will connect you.

We've Figured Him Out
By Ben Stein
Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?
Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:
The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.
They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.
They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.
The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.
Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East, way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.
The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to help all Americans.
Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.
The American people already know that Mr. Obama's plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never will be -- a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society. Either the costs go up or the free society goes away.
These are perilous times. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us" from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man.
Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms.
There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America.

Obama’s Health-Care Proposal Could Keep Consumers from Choosing Own Insurance Plan After Five Years, House Minority Leader Says
By Edwin Mora
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) (AP Photo)
Washington (CNSNews.com) - President Obama is promoting a “big government-run” health care plan that is going to choke out private sector insurance companies, and will empower the government to eventually design insurance policies for consumers, House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) told CNSNews.com on Thursday.
“I think it’s pretty clear that the government-run program that they want is going to eventually crowd out the private sector, and secondly, in their bill it says that after five years, you can’t go out and buy a health insurance policy on your own,” Boehner said.
“You have to go to one of their government exchanges to buy a plan that was designed by the government,” he added. “So it’s pretty clear that we’re going to have a big government-run system that will eventually drive out the private sector plans we have today.”
Boehner’s comments came during a press briefing inside the Capitol, in response to CNSNews.com’s question of whether he thinks it is fair to describe the health-care plan being promoted by President Obama as “socialized medicine.”
The Republican leader in the U.S. House of Representatives went on to explain that five years after the Democrats’ health-care reform becomes law, the federal government would decide if health-care benefits provided by employers are satisfactory.
“After five years every employer-sponsored health care benefits have to be approved by the Department of Labor and the new Health Choices Czar to make sure that it meets federal standards.”
“So it’s pretty clear the government is going to design the health insurance policies that are going to be out there,” Boehner reiterated.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday continued to praise the health-care legislation, which is currently making its way through the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Finance Committee.
The House Ways and Means and Education and Labor Committees already have passed their versions of the bill, and so has the Senate health committee.
Pelosi said a “card” has been handed out to all House members as they go home for the August recess describing what is in store for the American people under health-care reform, adding that people’s economic security is linked to their health security.
“Under this legislation, no discrimination for pre-existing conditions, no dropping of your coverage because you are sick, no refusal to renew your coverage if you are paid in full, no more job loss or job decisions being made on the basis of whether you have health insurance,” said Pelosi today during a press briefing inside the Capitol, describing the card’s content.
“No co-pay on preventive or wellness care. No excessive out pocket expenses, deductibles, or co-pay,” she added. “Yearly caps on what you pay, but no cap on your benefits.”
The speaker went on to say that revamping the current health-care system is necessary to rectify what she described as “damage” caused by the health insurance companies that have been in place.
“These are initiatives that are very important in this legislation and they are to correct what the insurance companies have done to America and to the health of our people over the years,” said Pelosi. “I think it’s very clear that we want a strong a public-option in the legislation.”
“Insurance companies are out there in full force carpet-bombing, shocking all against a public option,” she added.
Republicans have not been the only ones speaking against the bill. The Blue Dog Democrats -- a coalition of moderate to conservative House Democrats, which is comprised of fiscally conservative democrats have also portrayed concern in regards to the health-care legislation that is currently being discussed.
The coalition proved to be somewhat effective as House Democratic leaders came to an agreement with the Blue Dogs to reduce the health-care reform proposals’ total cost while a bipartisan group of lawmakers on the Senate Finance Committee revealed that a draft of their health bill will save $100 billion. That would bring the overall cost to less than $900 billion over 10 years, which is just under the original price tag, estimated at about $1 trillion.
Ewww! The White House "organic" garden isn't because the Clintons tainted it with sewer sludgeWhite House organic garden isn't organic because of sewer sludge
Poor First Lady Michelle Obama. How is she ever going to get Malia and Sasha to eat their veggies now? Not to mention Prince Charles and Camilla?
First Lady Obama's noble effort to grow an "organic garden" failed after the National Park Service tested the soil in the veggie patch. They found "highly elevated levels of lead" from sewage used as fertilizer.
A bigger question? In the video below, the First Lady told a bunch of children that veggies from that garden would be served "at State Dinners".
But only to heads of state we don't like?
The culprits? Former President and First Lady Bill and Hillary Clinton, who evidently used treated sewer sludge as compost. They didn't learn from Twilight, the movie that shows the benefit of worm tea / compost tea.
King County "GroCo" would help ...maybe?
Dozens of public wastewater facilities around the country take sewer "sludge", dry it, compost it, mix it with other ingredients (King County's "GroCo" BioSolids Recovery program mixes in 3 parts sawdust to 1 part sludge, then composts the mixture), and sell it. GroCo claims the compost is safe to use on gardens. Could it help the White House garden?
Evidently the stuff the Clintons used had too much lead, so Michelle's highly-touted "organic garden" will never "attain organic status." The certification process doesn't allow "the use of sludge as a fertilizer substitute."
White House associate chef Sam Kass said the garden has produced lettuce, snap peas, beans, kale, collards and chard. Yummy. "Here, your majesty. Have some collard greens grown on sewage!"
Had Bill and Hillary only known about Edward and Bella's worm tea / compost tea from Twilight!
Twilight's worm / compost tea is made out on Vashon Island. Read and watch how.
For more FAQs about sewer sludge and organic gardening, here's King County's biosolids site
In this video, First Lady Michelle Obama discusses how veggies from the tainted organic garden will be served at State Dinners. A few months later, these same children ate salad and other green veggies from a garden the National Park Service says has "highly elevated levels of lead".
David Kuhns, Seattle's Green Living Examiner, has an organic garden with no sewage sludge. He writes web content and does marketing consulting at http://www.cyranowriter.com, and leads eco-tours in canoes (http://www.romanticlovepoet.com). Dave is wondering if he wants to be invited to dinner at the White House any time soon. Note: This just shows how hard it is to be "truly green"; we need to cut each other some slack and applaud our efforts ... even if they don't work.
Stunning list of achievements
If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?
If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current on their income taxes, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the fourth of May (Cuatro de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?
If George W. Bush had misspelled the word advice would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as "proof" of what a dunce he is?
If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on "Earth Day", would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic , would you have wondered whether they actually "get" what happened on 9-11?
If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again 10 times within years, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.
Obama and the CPUSA
I encourage you to read the latest words from Sam Webb, National Chair of the Communist Party USA. As is the wont of communists, Mr. Webb is rather long-winded; I provide only a few interesting excerpts. All emphases added by me.
"Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
"In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
"We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
"...In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
"Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
"Isn't it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
"...The new conditions of struggle are possible only - and I want to emphasize only - because we elected President Obama and a Congress with pronounced progressive and center currents.
"Yes, socialism is our objective and, according to recent public opinion polls, it is increasingly attractive to the American people. But clearly it is not on the immediate political agenda.
"...As for our radicalism, we should be as radical as reality itself. And reality strongly suggests that our main task is to bring the weight of the working class and other democratic forces to bear on the reform process with the aim of deepening its anti-corporate content and direction.
"...Let's be aware that he [Obama] has to keep a coalition together for his long-term as well as immediate legislative agenda. Let's give President Obama some space to change and to respond to pressures from below.
"...The Right Wing, the American Medical Association, the pharmaceutical and insurance companies have drawn a line in the sand on health care.
"...The core of this struggle, whether we like it or not, turns on the inclusion of a public option in a health care bill.
"...Months ago it was said that the downturn could be "L-shaped" rather than "V-shaped." In other words, the crisis begins with a steep decline in economic activity followed by long period of economic stagnation.
"I suspect that this is what will happen, thus making sustained government and people's intervention an imperative. In my view this should take at least three forms:
"First, more economic stimulus: the economy is underperforming and nearly 30 million workers are unemployed or underemployed and that number hasn't peaked yet.
"Second, restructuring is imperative. The old economic model that rested on bubble economics, cheap labor, financial manipulation and speculation, deregulation, capital outsourcing, environmental degradation, and so forth, has to be replaced by a new model that expands and restructures the productive base and is "people and nature" friendly.
"Finally, the economy has to be democratized. The wizards of Wall Street and inside the Beltway failed miserably, in fact, so miserably those economic decisions that affect the welfare of millions shouldn't rest in their hands.
"...In the meantime, the struggle for immediate public sector jobs and relief should command our attention.
"...President Obama ... has expressed a readiness to engage with countries that during the Bush years were considered mortal enemies - Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and others.
"...In Iraq, the U.S. withdrawal plan is proceeding, with the first stage being withdrawal from Iraqi cities by July. President Obama has reiterated his intention to stick with the pullout deadlines. Even with the caveats about what U.S. forces might remain, this is a major victory for the peace movement."
If not already painfully obvious to you, let me point out a few things:
(1) Obama's policy agenda and that of the CPUSA are in perfect alignment: more stimuli; green jobs; global warming; public sector jobs; more regulation and, in fact, restructuring of the entire economy; eventual single-payer health care, with the public option being critical to any immediate plan; union-friendly legislation; cutting defense spending; engaging and normalizing relations with the US's mortal enemies like Hugo Chavez, the Castro brothers and the reigning mullah's of Iran; claiming victory in Iraq as their own.
(2) Obama's political approach is also in perfect harmony with that of the CPUSA's. The method is gradualism. Overall, Obama is doing pretty well at achieving CPUSA's goals under the current political circumstances. The Left should not expect immediate and radical changes. And of all things, the Left should not "define the current struggle as one that arrays the people against President Obama. That's not Marxism; it's plain stupid."
(3) Mr. Webb expects a lousy economy to continue. Specifically, he expects the "L-shaped" recovery. But this "long period of economic stagnation" will be an excuse for continued government intervention. As Lenin supposedly said, "the worse the better."
(4) Socialism is the objective.
In my view, this duck has a bill, webbed feet and feathers; quacks, walks, flies and swims; and has DNA that matches that of a duck. I'm willing to call it a duck.
The really striking thing about all this, though, is that the CPUSA can openly align itself with the President of the US, right under our noses, and it will have zero effect on public sentiment because the lapdog media studious averts its gaze.
H.R.1388 was passed Date: Fri, 3 July 2009 07:45:52 -0700
Look at what our illustrious president pulled off in stealth and secrecy. Just think what will/may happen in the next 3.5 years. H.R. 1388 was passed whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U.S. needs to know....
Something happened... H.R. 1388 was passed yesterday, behind our backs.. You may want to read about it. It wasn't mentioned on the news... just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.
Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA . This is the news that didn't make the headlines...
By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugee and "conflict victims" in Gaza.
The "presidential determination", which allows Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States, was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on Feb 4.
Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.
Let's review...itemized list of some of Barack Obama's most recent actions since his inauguration:
His first call to any head of state, as president, was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
His first one-on-one television interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
His first executive order was to fund/facilitate abortion(s) not just here within the U. S. but within the world, using U. S. tax payer funds.
He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
He ordered overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the "terror attack" on 9/11.
Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.
