Christianity under fire -- In america
"It is an isolated incident" at least that is what we heard from the Obama administration, but it is no longer believable. Today yet another story broke about the labeling of Christians as terrorists by the military. Soldiers attending a briefing were informed that Christains and Conservatives are terrorists and that the soilders would be prosecuted if they donated to such groups. Horrified a soilder reported it to the news media.
Two weeks before soilders were told that the American Family Association was a hate group, because of its determination that homosexual marriage is wrong. A letter by an advisor to the Pentagon labled Christains as monsters. Christians will be court-martialed for sharing their faith, and the list continues. Religious liberty is under attack, and the first place they are stricking is among out military; among those who are willing to give all to defend America.
Sign the ACLJ petition and tell the President that Christians are not extremists -- sign now!

The CRPD Is Back
We've heard that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is coming up again in the US Senate. The Foreign Relations Committee is expected to hold hearings on the treaty in late October.
What are the dangers of this treaty? Here's what out friends at HSLDA, who have been front and center during the entire battle over the CRPD, have said:

In 2006, Michigan voters approved a ban on affirmative action (preferential treatment to individuals because of race, ethnicity, etc.) in the public sector. The ban encompassed admission to public universities as well as the hiring of government employees. The ban reads as follows:
(1) The University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, and any other public college or university, community college, or school district shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.
Soon after the proposal was accepted by the people of the state of Michigan it was challenged in court. In 2012 the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals declared the law unconstitutional, and Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette appealed the decision on behalf of the state. The appeal was granted and tomorrow oral arguments will be heard in Court.
We Can Win New Jersey
Conservatives have a real opportunity to claim one of New Jersey's US Senate seats -- less than a week from today. Although Newark liberal Cory Booker was expected to have an easy path to the seat, suddenly there is someone standing in his way. That man is Steve Lonegan, a real conservative who is ready to fight for the principles that made this country great.
Just a few weeks ago, Booker had a very comfortable lead of 35% in the polls. Now, Steve Lonegan has surged dramatically and has cut Booker's lead to a mere six percent, and the race continues to tighten. With that momentum and your help, we can win this Senate seat and be one step closer to a conservative majority in 2014.
The special election for New Jersey's vacant U.S. Senate seat will take place on Wednesday, October 16. For more information, please click here.
No matter where you live, you can make a difference in the New Jersey Senate race. Click here for info about how to make phone calls for Steve right from your own home!
During the last two weeks Republicans have passed twenty bills to refund the government. The Senate has either tabled them or rejected them. Only four of the nineteen addressed ObamaCare.
The first bill fully funded the government and defunded ObamaCare
The second bill fully funded the government and delayed ObamaCare
The third bill fully funded the government and delayed the indiviual mandate in ObamaCare
The bills after this funded the National Park Service, the National Institute of Health, the National Guard, the VA, WIC, Federal Employees, Head Start, and The Department of Homeland Security among others.
The complete listing of bills is on the Congressional website.
In a new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown abortions can be performed with some one who has only a nurse practicer or midwife license. This will allow Planned Parenthood to hire cheaper abortionists potentailly causing even more health risks in the already dangerous procedure. But regardless of the dangers involved we must not remove our focus from the fact that abortion kills a living child.
