Rush Limbaugh

tucker carlsonCaller: All the people in that line had to get in to see Donald Trump, although 40,000 people waiting in the 20,000 person venue, I should say, it was almost impossible that everybody was going to get in. But we did. And that’s the point. But when we were waiting in line, at about the two-hour point, there was a woman in line who had gotten a text from a friend of hers that said that the Target Center was only half full and there’s hardly anybody outside waiting to get in. That was fake news. We did get in —

Trump rallyRUSH: Okay. So sound bites from the Trump rally. This first one is from Thursday night in Minneapolis.

THE PRESIDENT: …Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, a lot of people.

AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause)

THE PRESIDENT: The great Mark Levin. We have a lot of great people.

AUDIENCE: (cheers)

THE PRESIDENT: Lou Dobbs. Great people. You know what they said — every one of ’em, plus many others? “There’s no other man that we’ve ever met that could have taken it.” It’s true. Maybe I’m a little different up here. (points to head) I don’t know.

Ben Garrison

THE PRESIDENT: But I enjoy it. To me, it’s… I’m energized, because we’re draining the swamp.

Truth in Journalism ignored by Mainstream Media

THE PRESIDENT: And you know what? There are many others, many others, many others. But they get it right. But why is it John Solomon…? Why aren’t these people getting the real Pulitzer Prize?

fake news liesBecause they were right. They called it right. The Times, the Washington Post — the dishonest, horrible — I think very, very bad for our country — publications. It’s a phony deal. So their writers get Pulitzer Prizes for getting it wrong, and the great writers that really got it — and I don’t know them. I never even met some of these people. But the ones that really got it right, they go home empty-handed. Doesn’t work that way. And the people see it, you know? The people see it. So some of the names that I mentioned — all of the names that I mentioned and plenty that I didn’t — I’ll tell you, thank God we have them on our side.

John Solomon, Hannity RUSH: I’ll give you a name that should be in his list: Sara Carter. Sara Carter ought to be in that list. This is one of my talking points, in fact. These people are working so hard — Solomon, Sara Carter and all the people that he mentionedand they’re right. They’re getting it right. They’re the ones that ought to be winning the awards for ferreting out the story! But they get ignored. They are effectively nonexistent. Trump is exactly right about that.

Pro Life Facts: Heartbeat of Baby at 16 days

Pro Life Facts:

Heartbeat of Baby at 16 days

By Thomas Lifson

I must confess that I have never observed the pro-life people who station themselves outside of abortion clinics in an attempt to persuade pregnant women to rethink their impulse to abort. In fact, since I dislike being accosted by strangers, I have had a bit of mental reservation about the practice, even though it puts me in the company of most abortion enthusiasts. They regard such people at pariahs, and succeeded in getting the Supreme Court to agree more than two decades ago to a buffer zone around clinics.

The video embedded below, in a tweet from Live Action, the pro-life group founded by Lila Rose when she was 15 years old, ought to be seen by everyone who has ever wondered about how the process works, and how little information some prospective candidates for abortion have. The mother’s reaction when she learns that her baby has a heartbeat is stunning. That she was inclined to have an abortion without realizing her baby was alive within her is heartbreaking. But that she came to understand this and is reconsidering, is heartwarming.

More information – about the nature of a fetus, and about the alternatives available to women considering abortion – is obviously better than less information. The customary political dodge of abortion supporters, first popularized by Bill Clinton, is that they want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” People who mouth this slogan must support efforts like that depicted in the video. The only people who urge women to have an abortion without this sort of informational intervention must think that abortion itself – the killing of a human life — is a positive good.

Election Day 2018: Issues Facing America—Democratic Party Platform vs. GOP Party Platform

Election Day 2018: Issues Facing America—

Democratic Party Platform vs. GOP Party Platform

 

10 key issues Facing America

November 2018 – HUMAN LIFE
Democratic Party
Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion – regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured. We believe that reproductive health is core to women’s, men’s, and young people’s health and wellbeing. …We will continue to oppose – and seek to overturn – federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment.

Republican Party
The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can “be deprived of life, liberty or property” deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all” are “endowed by their Creator” with the inalienable right to life. Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Democratic Party
We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers, which provide critical health services to millions of people.

Republican Party
We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide health care.

JUDGES
Democratic Party

We will appoint judges who defend the constitutional principles of liberty and equality for all, protect a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion, curb billionaires’ influence over elections because they understand that Citizens United has fundamentally damaged our democracy, and see the Constitution as a blueprint for progress.

Republican Party
We support the appointment of judges who respect traditional family values and the sanctity of innocent human life. We condemn attempts by activist judges at any level of government to seize the power of the purse from the people’s elected representatives by ordering higher taxes.

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
Democratic Party
Democrats know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith in many forms and the countless acts of justice, mercy, and tolerance it inspires. We believe in lifting up and valuing the good work of people of faith and religious organizations and finding ways to support that work where possible.

Republican Party
We value the right of America’s religious leaders to preach, and Americans to speak freely, according to their faith. Republicans believe the federal government, specifically the IRS, is constitutionally prohibited from policing or censoring speech based on religious convictions or beliefs, and therefore we urge the repeal of the Johnson Amendment.

EDUCATION/SCHOOL CHOICE
Democratic Party
Democrats are also committed to providing parents with high-quality public school options and expanding these options for low-income youth. We support democratically governed, great neighborhood public schools and high-quality public charter schools, and we will help them disseminate best practices to other school leaders and educators. Democrats oppose for-profit charter schools focused on making a profit off of public resources.

Republican Party
We support options for learning, including home-schooling, career and technical education, private or parochial schools, magnet schools, charter schools, online learning, and early-college high schools. We especially support the innovative financing mechanisms that make options available to all children: education savings accounts (ESAs), vouchers, and tuition tax credits.

SEX EDUCATION
Democratic Party
We recognize that quality, affordable comprehensive health care, evidence-based sex education, and a full range of family planning services help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies.

Republican Party
We renew our call for replacing “family planning” programs for teens with sexual risk avoidance education that sets abstinence until marriage as the responsible and respected standard of behavior.

OBAMACARE
Democratic Party
Thanks to the hard work of President Obama and Democrats in Congress, we took a critically important step towards the goal of universal health care by passing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which has offered coverage to 20 million more Americans and ensured millions more will never be denied coverage on account of a pre-existing condition.

Republican Party
Any honest agenda for improving health care must start with repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare. …To simplify the system for both patients and providers, we will reduce mandates and enable insurers and providers of care to increase health care options and contain costs.

MARRIAGE
Democratic Party
Democrats applaud [the 2015] decision by the Supreme Court that recognized LGBT people – like every other American – have the right to marry the person they love. But there is still much work to be done. … Democrats will fight for the continued development of sex discrimination law to cover LGBT people. We will also fight for comprehensive federal non-discrimination protections for all LGBT Americans … .

Republican Party
We condemn the Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v Windsor, which wrongly removed the ability of Congress to define marriage policy in federal law. We also condemn the Supreme Court’s lawless ruling in Obergefell v Hodges. … In Obergefell, five unelected lawyers robbed 320 million Americans of their legitimate constitutional authority to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH
Democratic Party
Democrats believe we must accelerate the pace of medical progress, ensuring that we invest more in our scientists and give them the resources they need to invigorate our fundamental studies in the life sciences in a growing, stable, and predictable way. …We recognize the critical importance of a fully funded National Institutes of Health to accelerate the pace of medical progress.

Republican Party
We call for expanded support for the stem cell research that now offers the greatest hope for many afflictions – through adult stem cells, umbilical cord blood, and cells reprogrammed into pluripotent stem cells – without the destruction of embryonic human life. We urge a ban on human cloning for research or reproduction, and a ban on the creation of, or experimentation on, human embryos for research.

IRAN
Democratic Party
We support the nuclear agreement with Iran because, if vigorously enforced and implemented, it verifiably cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb without resorting to war.

Republican Party
We consider the Administration’s deal with Iran, to lift international sanctions and make hundreds of billions of dollars available to the Mullahs, a personal agreement between the President and his negotiating partners. … Because of it, the defiant and emboldened regime in Tehran continues to sponsor terrorism across the region, develop a nuclear weapon, test-fire ballistic missiles inscribed with “Death to Israel,” and abuse the basic human rights of its citizens. A Republican president will not be bound by it.

Planned Parenthood Betrayal: Congressional Action belies Biblical Values, Professed Faith

Planned Parenthood Betrayal:

Congressional Action belies Biblical Values, Professed Faith

“A good tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a corrupt tree bear good fruit.” Matt 7:18

Walker Wildmon

AFA Assistant to the president

January-February 2018 – Americans are beginning to realize that many of our elected officials are doing more harm than good. I believe this is because our country is run by non-believers in Washington, D.C. By non-believers, I mean in the sense that they have not yet trusted Jesus Christ as the Son of God and for the forgiveness of sin as the Bible describes in John 3:16-18. The Apostle John said:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son (ESV).

According to Pew Research Center, 90.7% of Congress identify as Christian. But when you consider the kind of work Congress is doing, or the lack thereof, you’d think few of them were Christian. In Matthew 7:15-16, Jesus says, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.”

What I call the “fruit standard” can also be used to determine if one is a Christian or not. If you apply the fruit standard to congressmen and women, you could conclude that few of them are genuine believers.

Let’s take a look at the kind of fruit that we see coming from Congress in recent months. On two separate occasions since being sworn in, the new Congress has reauthorized federal tax dollars to go to Planned Parenthood which, as the leading abortion provider in America, kills babies in the womb. Each year this organization gets over $500 million from the government alone. How can a Congress that claims to be 90% Christian continue to allocate funds for such an organization? Exodus 20:13 says, “You shall not murder.” In the New Testament, Matthew 5:21 says, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’” The Bible is clear that murder is sin.

beware of false prophets

The reality, then, is that our country is not run by an overwhelming majority of Christian individuals. Am I suggesting that some politicians who confess to be Christian aren’t genuine followers of Christ? That’s exactly what I’m suggesting. I know questioning others’ faith is a subject that most won’t dare to do, but I think it is important to discuss this. Jesus talks about this in Matthew 7:21-23:

Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?” And then will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness” (ESV).

As genuine followers of Christ, we can’t allow anyone and everyone to go unchallenged when they claim the same faith without exhibiting some sort of fruit. Not only is this false representation; it also damages the overall image of the church.

We’re allowing the Christian faith and the name of Jesus Christ to be hijacked by fruitless non-believers.

Right now, the world looks at the state of affairs in Washington, D.C. and assumes that 90% of the politicians are Christian – as they claim to be. No wonder the world mocks people of faith. We’re allowing the Christian faith and the name of Jesus Christ to be hijacked by fruitless non-believers.

Are there genuine followers of Christ in Congress? Absolutely, but I would argue they are few and far between. The genuine Christians in Congress deserve our support, prayers, and respect. They are shining the light of Christ in a very dark place. To the politicians who claim the name of Christ yet offer no evidence of the truth of that claim, please, begin following biblical teaching or drop the false label.

While I believe it is healthy for Christians to hold our elected officials accountable, no matter their faith, it is more important for us to put genuine believers into office. A nation with genuine Christians directing its government is sure to be a nation that honors God with its policy decisions.

American Family Association Issues at Hand: Planned Parenthood closings; Social Media linked to Depression

American Family Association Issues at Hand:

Planned Parenthood closings; Social Media linked to Depression

Planned Parenthood closes more centers

March 2017 – The American Life League annual survey shows that in 2016, 27 Planned Parenthood locations closed. The closings were offset with eight new centers, resulting in a net loss of 19.

“They’re now down to 624 facilities across the country from a high of 938,” said ALL executive director Jim Sedlak. “So they’ve lost one-third of the facilities.”

Although figures related to services provided by the abortion giant are not yet available for 2015 and 2016, the number of services provided in the six previous years (from 2009 to 2014) decreased significantly: 63% fewer cancer screenings, 56% fewer breast exams, 70% fewer Pap smear tests, and 30% fewer abortions.

In 2016, Planned Parenthood received over $553 million of taxpayer money from the federal government.

Fastest growing churches hold to literal interpretation of the Scripture

 

March 2017 – According to a five-year study published in Review of Religious Research, an internationally respected journal, the fastest growing churches are those that hold to a literal interpretation of the Bible, including teachings on heaven and hell.

“If we are talking solely about what belief system is more likely to lead to numerical growth among Protestant churches,” said David Haskell, lead researcher of the Canadian study, “the evidence suggests conservative Protestant theology is the clear winner.”

Clergy and worshippers in growing churches experienced greater participation in regular Bible reading and prayer.

Additionally, with respect to outsiders, an unwavering message with clear boundaries is a drawing factor.

theguardian.com, 11/17/16

Social media linked to depression

March 2017 –It has become cliché to see young people staring at their phones scrolling social media pages. But all that scrolling can have a negative effect on the way they see the world and themselves.

According to a 2016 study sponsored by the National Institute for Mental Health, social media can have a detrimental impact on the mental and emotional well-being of young adults.

The study polled 1,787 adults ages 19 to 32. Researchers inquired about time spent on social media, number of visits per week, and other related issues.

“It is human nature to compare ourselves to others,” said Mark Widdowson, a writer for the website Mashable. “Sometimes comparisons can be a way to inspire ourselves to improve in some way, but, more often than not – especially when someone is feeling down or is prone to depression – the comparisons become negative and erode self-esteem.”

Nick Cannon Doubles Down: Planned Parenthood Is ‘Modern Day Eugenics’

Jerome Hudson

Rapper and TV personality Nick Cannon is not backing away from his claim that Planned Parenthood is committing “genocide” against black people, insisting further that the abortion provider promotes “population control.”

Asked by a TMZ reporter to elaborate further on the topic, Cannon said, “Yeah, it’s population control.”

plannedParenthoodAFAWhen pressed further, the America’s Got Talent host said Planned Parenthood engages in “modern day eugenics.”

The 36-year-old TV star first accused Planned Parenthood of inflicting “real genocide” on black Americans during an interview last week with “The Breakfast Club” radio show.

“Hillary was sneaking and cheating,” Cannon said. “Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years.”

Cannon appears to be referring to Planned Parenthood’s genesis in the early 20th century.

Planned Parenthood was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in October 1916. More than 100 years later, the taxpayer-funded organization performs over 300,000 abortions per year in the United States — making it the country’s largest abortion provider.

According to the 2010 census, some 79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black or Latino neighborhoods.

Of the 59 million abortions performed since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 18 million of them have been of black children. Today, about 30 percent of all abortions in the U.S. are performed on black women, while another 25 percent are performed on Hispanic women, Breitbart News has reported.

Pro-Life Leaders Applaud Choice of Rep. Tom Price as HHS Nominee

National pro-life leaders are applauding President-elect Donald Trump’s pick of Republican Rep. Tom Price of Georgia for secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“Chairman Price, a renowned physician, has earned a reputation for being a tireless problem solver and the go-to expert on healthcare policy, making him the ideal choice to serve in this capacity,” Trump said in a statement. “He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American. I am proud to nominate him as Secretary of Health and Human Services.”

abortion3-pro-lifePrice, who has a 100 percent pro-life voting record, will likely not only play a major role in the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, but also in the redirection of taxpayer funds to health centers that do not perform abortions.

Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center (MRC) released the following statement on Price’s nomination:

The appointment of Rep. Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services is yet another excellent cabinet choice by President-elect Trump. Trump seems absolutely committed to honoring his pro-life commitments by selecting a man with a 100% pro-life record…And in choosing a pro-life cabinet member, Trump has disrupted the liberal media’s pro-abortion agenda, their single most important issue.

Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser also commented:

Representative Tom Price is an excellent choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services. He has a 100 percent pro-life record and is well positioned to champion truly comprehensive health care. He helped lead the charge to defund Planned Parenthood through budget reconciliation, setting the stage for President-elect Trump and a pro-life Congress to reallocate those funds to support comprehensive women’s healthcare. As HHS Secretary, he will play a key role in developing a robust health care reform proposal that protects life and consciences, while promoting options for low-income individuals and families.

stop-abortionSimilarly, Ashley McGuire, senior fellow with The Catholic Association, released the following statement:

President-elect Trump has made an excellent choice in Rep. Price as Secretary of HHS. In particular, Rep. Price’s strong pro-life values and record to match make him the right man to reform an agency that has been marred by its aggressive abortion agenda. The Department of HHS caused the largest religious liberty class-action lawsuit in American history when it tried to force religious employers and charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for and provide things like abortion pills in their healthcare plans. We are confident that Rep. Price will finally put an end to the anti-religious liberty HHS mandate, as well as introduce comprehensive reforms to restore the agency as one that genuinely promotes healthcare that respects human life and dignity.

Abortion chain Planned Parenthood and its CEO Cecile Richards, however, are denouncing the choice.

Choosing Supreme Court Justices, Stopping Planned Parenthood, Voter Fraud

What One Woman Is Doing to Take Down Planned Parenthood

life-vs-abortionWhile Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is celebrating its 100th anniversary Sunday, one organization is working tirelessly to put Planned Parenthood out of business.

CEO Brandi Swindell founded Stanton Healthcare in 2006. According to the Stanton Project’s website, it has branched out from a room in a doctor’s office to an international affiliate program.

Stanton Healthcare is a nonprofit medical facility that provides pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, client advocacy, and other life-affirming programs that respect the “dignity of both mother and child.”

“Planned Parenthood is coming up on their 100th anniversary and we are coming up on our 10th. We are looking to replace and outlast Planned Parenthood,” Swindell told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

“I founded Stanton Healthcare in 2006,” said Swindell. “I have been doing pro-life work for 16 or 17 years and have worked on the national level and co-founded Generation Life.”

Here Are 3 New Cases of Voter Fraud. Governments Must Ensure Vote Integrity as Election Day Looms.

Jason Snead

cartoon-vote-fraud

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection for another great cartoon

As Election Day looms large, Americans are as divided as ever on the future direction of the country and many of our most pressing issues.

One issue that ought to unite the country, however, is the need for election integrity. After all, it is through the ballot box that voters will select our local, state, and federal leaders. It is imperative that the vote accurately reflects the will of our citizens.

Many on the left, however, are unconcerned with the protection of each individual’s vote. They quickly dismiss voter fraud as a myth meant to justify voter suppression. Perhaps progressives are so quick to kill the debate because they know that the facts are not on their side.

Indeed, voter fraud is a very real and ongoing threat to the integrity of the political process, and The Heritage Foundation’s “Does Your Vote Count” project tracks this “nonexistent” problem. Today, we are adding 16 new confirmed convictions for voter fraud to our voter fraud database. That brings the count to over 430 criminal convictions for election fraud.

Missouri

voter-fraud2In North St. Louis, incumbent Penny Hubbard won the 2016 Democratic primary for Missouri’s 78th House District by 90 votes. Her challenger, Bruce Franks Jr., contested the results, citing a lopsided absentee vote tally that heavily favored Hubbard. Franks had carried the in-person vote.

District Judge Rex Burlison determined that a sufficient number of improper absentee ballots had been cast to change the results of the election, and ordered a second election. Franks won the redo by a margin of 1,533 votes.

North Carolina

Pasco Parker, a 63-year-old Tennessee resident, admitted to voting in three states during the 2012 federal election. He mailed in an absentee ballot to both Florida and North Carolina, and he voted in person in Tennessee.

Parker pleaded guilty to felony voting fraud and felony voter registration. He received a prison sentence of six to 17 months, and was ordered to complete 48 hours of community service. His prison time was later suspended in favor of 24 months of supervised probation.

Parker’s case speaks to the need for states to adopt policies meant to make it easier to identify duplicate voting and ensure those who do so are brought to justice. Most current state policies are inadequate; indeed, Parker’s fraud may well have gone undetected were it not for the investigatory efforts of a North Carolina volunteer voting watchdog group, the Voter Integrity Project.

Kentucky

voter-fraudMagoffin County Magistrate Gary Risner, Deputy County Clerk Larry Shepherd, and Tami Jo Risner (Gary Risner’s ex-wife) were convicted of felony voter fraud for a vote buying scheme to boost a host of candidates in the 2014 election.

An accomplice, Scotty L. McCarty, was also charged, but pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and ultimately testified against the others.

McCarty revealed that the group had participated in vote buying conspiracies in several elections dating back to 2010. He testified that Shepherd contributed $10,000 and Tami Jo Risner contributed $2,000 to the vote buying operation, paying individuals $50 apiece to vote for their slate of candidates.

Shepherd also revealed that in a 2010 election, while acting as a precinct officer, he added 60 votes to the total for a candidate and Tami Jo Risner signed the names of those who hadn’t voted to cover the discrepancy.

The Magoffin fraudsters will be sentenced in December. They each face a potential five-year prison sentence.

The right to vote is essential to the American system of government. Consequently, election integrity must be preserved to ensure that every legitimate vote counts, and that our elections accurately reflect the will of the citizenry. But before government at all levels can remedy the problem of voter fraud, politicians must first acknowledge that it exists.

Heritage’s report, “Does Your Vote Count,” discusses the history of, reasons for, and myths about voter fraud. It also suggests practical, commonsense changes that will both protect American elections while encouraging all eligible voters to register and cast their ballots.

As shown in the Missouri 78th House District case, and many other cases in our database, voter fraud can drastically influence the outcome of elections and usurp the will of the people. It’s a serious problem that deserves a serious solution.

Supreme Court: One vote matters

A single Supreme Court justice can uphold or trample the Constitution

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

supreme-courtIt doesn’t always come down to one vote.

Look back at some of the most notable U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and you find some of the best were decided by an overwhelming majority.

Brown v. Board of Education, which outlawed racial segregation in public schools, was unanimous, in fact. So was NLRB v. Noel Canning, which reinforced the fact that a president cannot make recess appointments when the Senate is in session.

Some of the worst, too, were similarly lopsided. Plessy v. Ferguson, a pre-Brown case that allowed segregated public facilities, was decided by a 7-1 vote. The infamous Roe v. Wade, which struck down state laws outlawing abortion, was 7-2.

Democratic Party

election-quote6-dem-vs-godDemocrats know that our nation, our communities, and our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith in many forms and the countless acts of justice, mercy, and tolerance it inspires. We believe in lifting up and valuing the good work of people of faith and religious organizations and finding ways to support that work where possible. (p.19)
church-state3-first-amendmtRepublican Party
We value the right of America’s religious leaders to preach, and Americans to speak freely, according to their faith. Republicans believe the federal government, specifically the IRS, is constitutionally prohibited from policing or censoring speech based on religious convictions or beliefs, and therefore we urge the repeal of the Johnson Amendment.

Obamacare


obamacaresocialismDemocratic Party
Thanks to the hard work of President Obama and Democrats in Congress, we took a critically important step towards the goal of universal health care by passing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which has offered coverage to 20 million more Americans and ensured millions more will never be denied coverage on account of a pre-existing condition. (p.34)
repeal-obamacareRepublican Party
Any honest agenda for improving health care must start with repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare. …To simplify the system for both patients and providers, we will reduce mandates and enable insurers and providers of care to increase health care options and contain costs.

Marriage


Democratic Party

Democrats applaud last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized LGBT people – like every other American – have the right to marry the person they love.

We will also fight for comprehensive federal non-discrimination protections for all LGBT Americans … . (p.19)

We condemn the Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v Windsor, which wrongly removed the ability of Congress to define marriage policy in federal law.

We consider the Administration’s deal with Iran, to lift international sanctions and make hundreds of billions of dollars available to the Mullahs, a personal agreement between the President and his negotiating partners. … Because of it, the defiant and emboldened regime in Tehran continues to sponsor terrorism across the region, develop a nuclear weapon, test-fire ballistic missiles inscribed with “Death to Israel,” and abuse the basic human rights of its citizens. A Republican president will not be bound by it. (p.46)

Bible Giveaway, Keys to Happiness, Beware of wolf

AFR, Truth for Youth give 63,174 Bibles

afa-truthforyouthOctober 2016 – For 15 years, American Family Radio has partnered with Revival Fires Ministries for one week each fall to provide free New Testaments for students to give to unsaved friends at school. In August, AFR listeners broke their own record (62,800 Bibles in 2015) by providing 63,174 Truth for Youth Bibles for Christian teens to give away.

“It’s a creative and effective way to get Bibles in the hands and hearts of unsaved teens,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon.

In evangelistic services he leads throughout the year, RFM president Tim Todd raises funds to print and ship the Bibles. Learn more at revivalfires.org.

Worship positive for health and Keys to Happiness

christian-worshipOctober 2016 – Marripedia, an online social science encyclopedia of research, found that nearly 100 studies show that 81% of the time there is a “positive association between religious involvement and greater happiness, life satisfaction, morale, positive affect, or some other measure of wellbeing.” People who highly value their religious faith and frequently participate in it have reduced incidence of depression or suicide.

In addition, those who attend services at least weekly have lower mortality rates, and a reduced risk of infectious disease, diabetes, and cancer. They live an average of seven years longer than those who are not active in religion.

Regular church attendance also correlates with higher levels of happiness and sexual satisfaction in marriage. Those who attend weekly are seven times less likely to have a sexual partner outside marriage. And teens who are in church at least once per week are more likely to abstain from sex; only 51% of those 17-year-olds had had sex, compared to 70% of those who never attend.

Muslim employee infiltrates, defrauds World Vision

Beware of wolf among the sheep! Christian groups are not immune to infiltration.

afa-worldvision-infiltratedOctober 2016 – Mohammed El Halabi, director of World Vision’s Gaza branch since 2010, confessed to siphoning off $7.2 million a year from donations given to the humanitarian aid organization, according to Israeli authorities who arrested Halabi on June 15. Prosecutors said the money was used to fund Hamas, of which Halabi is a member who was was recruited for the purpose of infiltrating World Vision. Israel estimates that in the last six years, Halabi diverted 60% of World Vision’s Gaza budget, intended for work among children in the region and agricultural projects. Germany and Australia suspended funding for World Vision in Gaza after the allegations.

sheep-and-wolf“[Halabi’s crime] massively damages the trust necessary for aid work for the people in Gaza,” said German politician Volker Beck.

“Any diversion of the generous support of the Australian and international community for military or terrorist purposes by Hamas is to be deplored and can only harm the Palestinian people,” Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood: one million deaths in 2015

abortion-planned-parenthood-fadedkidsOctober 2016 – Planned Parenthood global affiliates killed 964,325 babies in 2015, according to International Planned Parenthood Federation.

“If you were to read off the names of IPPF’s tiny victims – without sleeping, breaking, or pausing – it would take you almost two years,” LifeNews.com stated. “In fact, you would never finish. By the time you finished reading the list of all the lives lost in 2015, IPPF’s abortion facilities would have added another two million lives to be accounted for.”

IPPF plans to escalate that endeavor. In Ghana, for example, advertising campaigns led to a 25% increase in clients in the country in 2014. And IPPF takes credit for influencing more than 800 policy and legislative changes in the last decade that push “sexual and reproductive rights” around the world.
