JUDIE BROWN: OBAMA NOBEL PRIZE ‘SLAP IN THE FACE’ TO MOTHER TERESA

Washington, DC (09 October 2009) –
The following is a statement from Judie Brown, president of American Life League, on the announcement that President Barack Obama is the 2009 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

“Bestowing the Nobel Prize on the most rabid pro-abortion president in history is a direct slap in the face to past recipient, Mother Teresa of Calcutta who said, upon receiving her Nobel Peace Prize:
“the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing - direct murder by the mother herself."

“In awarding the prize to Obama, the Nobel Committee is announcing that abortion is the cornerstone of a hellish “peace” - the damning silence of 51 million aborted children in the United States alone.

"The Nobel Committee has bestowed the "Peace Prize" on a man dedicated to war in the womb."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death. For more information or press inquiries, please contact Katie Walker at 540.659.4942.

What Do You See When You Look At Money?

I had an article recommended to me the other day and I just had a chance to read it today; talk about eye opening. It is one of the most brilliant articles I have ever read in my life and I will never be able to look at money the same again. I highly recommend this article, but I warn you; it will change your thinking forever.

The Never Ending Assault On Our Republic

Us Southerners have long complained about the War of Northern Aggression, or the Civil War as Yankees tend to refer to it, but the assault on our Republic started almost before the ink had dried on the Constitution. Here is one of the forgotten stories that shows that the assault has been going on for years and that the feds also crushed states' rights in the North long before the War of Northern Aggression.

Founding Fathers Quote

No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) --
The Democratic Party last month launched an Internet campaign it terms "Call 'Em Out" that is supposedly an effort to single out elected officials it claims are not leveling with the public. It's latest attack is on Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican who has noted the abortion problems in the health care bills. [read more]

ANTI-RELIGIOUS BIAS MARKS TWO OBAMA PICKS

Catholic League president Bill Donohue drew attention to two of President Obama’s nominees who harbor an anti-religious bias:

It is one thing for a professor or pundit to maintain extremist views on constitutional law, quite another to have such a person tenured in a federal legal office. Dawn Johnsen, nominated to head the Office of Legal Counsel, and Chai Feldblum, nominated to join the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, have both exhibited an animus against religious institutions that is striking. Johnsen is a pro-abortion zealot and Feldblum is a pro-gay rights extremist. Moreover, both are profoundly opposed to religious liberty.

In 1988, Johnsen worked on a case that went before the U.S. Supreme Court seeking to revoke the tax exempt status of the Catholic Church. The Church’s offense? Its expressed opposition to abortion. Though she didn’t win, we know what her goal is, and we know what she would like to do to all churches. Johnsen is not merely pro-abortion—she celebrates it. To wit: she testified in February that after a woman has her child aborted, “The experience is no longer traumatic; the response of most women to the experience is relief.” Really? Is that why so many who enjoy this “experience” wind up on the couch or in the morgue?

Feldblum is such a radical activist that she wants to subordinate a constitutional right, namely freedom of religion, to a right she invented, namely sexual liberty. Moreover, she has lobbied for “a new vision for securing governmental
and private institutional recognition
of diverse kinds of partnerships….” (My emphasis.) This includes, “Queer couples who decide to jointly create and raise a child with another queer person or couple, in two households.” She also wants “Separation of church and state in all matters, including regulation and recognition of relationships, households and families.” Read: she wants to privatize marriage and provide equal status to every conceivable “partnership.”

Johnsen and Feldblum are not only out of the mainstream of jurisprudential thought, they are professed enemies of religious liberty.

Catholic League News Release

CROSS BELONGS ON PUBLIC LAND

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments today on the constitutionality of a seven-foot cross placed on public land in the Mojave National Preserve in San Bernardino County, California. Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the case:

In 1892, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that “this is a Christian nation.” Ever since, radical secularists have tried to stamp out that reality, holding that it excludes non-Christians. It does, and that is because this country’s founding was not the work of non-Christians: to be precise, it was the work of Protestant, white, heterosexual men. Not Catholics or Jews, not blacks, not homosexuals, not females. As the
New York Times
likes to say, “That’s All the News Fit to Print.”

Yet it is the
New York Times
that is today carping over the cross. Defensively, its editorial begins by saying that this case leads to such overheated charges as, “There is a war against Christianity under way; or civil liberties groups are trying to turn this into a secular nation.” Both accusations are accurate. Consider who is bringing suit against the World War I veterans who first erected the cross in 1934—about a generation after the high court proclaimed we are a Christian country—the ACLU. In two books, I have documented the anti-Christian animus that has marked the ACLU from its founding in 1920. And in Secular Sabotage, published last month, I document the multi-group effort to turn this country into a secular nation. Thus, the Times is twice wrong.

One reason the Times is wrong is its faulty sense of history: it is simply not true to insist that the founders said “there must be a wall of separation between church and state.” That metaphor was broached by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 in a letter to Baptists, and two days later he went to church services in a government building, the Capitol, thus making mince meat of the argument that he wanted a wall between church and state. So if Mr. Church and State thought it okay to have Christian services in a taxpayer-funded building, does the Times or the ACLU really think that Jefferson, or any of the founding fathers, would object to a cross—privately funded—on public lands honoring veterans, almost all of whom were Christians?

Impeach Obama - It Is Here

Some concerned citizens have recently asked where was the movement to impeach Obama? Well, it has started. You can now go to ImpeachObamaCampaign.com and fill up on all the latest Obama news. Is it just me or was the sunrise extra bright this morning? Bird chirping a little clearer. The bitter cold, Wisconsin air a little warmer. The country is waking up and the failures in DC will soon wake up to that fact.

The Space Shuttle


The space shuttle blasts off into space. This is how it works.

First, the crew gets the engines ready. Then the crew gets buckled up. Next someone will say "10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, blast off" and it goes up into space. Then when it is in space the rocket boosters come apart. Then, since all of the fuel is used the fuel tank falls. Now it is just the orbiter. The orbiter goes around the earth. Then it goes to the space station and drops off the astronauts and some more astronauts come in.

Now it finally goes back to Earth. Once it is on Earth it pops out its wheels and goes on the road and stops. The astronauts wait there for a while. Then the astronauts get out and then they wash the orbiter, and put together the pieces, and it starts all over again. That is it.

By our 2nd grade son.

America


I have a rock that has stars on it.
I have a star that has a soccer on it.
I have a soccer that has a penny on it.
I have a penny that has a horse on it.
I have a horse that has a sister on it.
I have a sister who has a family.
I have a family who has me.
I have flowers on me.
I have flowers with a pumpkin on them.
I have a pumpkin that has rose on it.
I have a rose that has the sun on it.
I have a sun that has the moon on it.
I have a moon that has God on it.
I have God to bless America.

More Americans Lose Their Lives While The President Sits On His Hands

Ten more of our soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan; two by an Afghan ally. All while Obama continues to show his weakness and utter disregard for national security. At this point you really have to question if he understands lives are at risk. I have never seen a president act so unconcerned over the loss of American lives.

No matter the number of Bush's failures you could always see the pain and grief on his face over the loss of American service men and women. I honestly do not think Obama has the slightest clue when it comes to national security and foreign policy and the coldness coming from the White House is shocking. Obama either needs to get a coherent strategy now or bring our forces home; before another American family is informed their loved one has made the ultimate sacrifice for a grateful nation and an apparently ungrateful, arrogant president.

Keep our armed forces and their families in your prayers; they need them now more than ever.
