FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

Freedom is not Free!

Freedom is not Free!

If freedom isn’t free, what has it cost someone else? 

Are you willing to take your freedom for granted?

What other country has the founding principals of the USA?  So, it that’s indeed true, what did it cost our founders? What has it cost every person who died on our soil or in our countries to keep us free?

Thank about that? Then ask yourself, “Should I be engaged in the process that keeps our Country truly free?”     What’s that??? Voting- many in other countries can’t and when they can they are willing to pay the price for standing up to vote!    Will you?

Insultor-in-Chief

Debates over immigration reform (to take but one example) are derided as polarizing. Commentators deride the lack of civil discourse in our political speech-especially if articulated by Republicans or tea partiers (who are derided as bitter and greedy, and otherwise disparaged in Menckian terms). Yet Barack Obama who preached unity a few short years ago:

“Even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us–the spin masters, the negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of ‘anything goes.’ Well, I say to them tonight, there is not a liberal America and a conservative America–there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America–there’s the United States of America.”–state senator Barack Obama , Democratic National Convention, July 27, 2004

Not only has ditched that soundbite::

“In the video message to his supporters, [President] Obama said his administration’s success depends on the outcome of this fall’s elections and warned that if Republicans regain control of Congress, they could ‘undo all that we have accomplished.’ ‘This year, the stakes are higher than ever,’ he said, according to a transcript of his remarks provided by Democratic officials. ‘It will be up to each of you to make sure that young people, African Americans, Latinos and women who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again. . . .’ “–Washington Post , April 26, 2010.

But now seems ready to step up the insults and derision:

From Politico:

BRINGING THE HEAT: Obama gets increasingly personal — POLITICO’s Jonathan Allen and Carol E. Lee:

‘Mitch McConnell is in bed with Wall Street ‘movers and shakers’ – and is fronting ‘cynical and deceptive’ arguments on their behalf. … Sarah Palin can be ignored on arms control because she’s ‘not exactly an expert on nuclear issues.’ And Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are just a ‘troublesome’ twosome spreading ‘vitriol.’ Democratic oppo research? Comments from Daily Kos? No, this is your president speaking. Once chastised for not being tough enough, President Barack Obamahas lately been getting personal with his political adversaries – singling them out for scorn in speeches, interviews, asides and even in his weekly radio address. Rather than just going after big groups of bad guys – insurance companies, lobbyists, the media – Obama has adopted a strategy that gives a face to the enemy. By setting himself up against specific opponents, he provides a point of contrast that’s useful in invigorating a base hungry for bare knuckles and bravado.’

He might be bringing the heat-but not the light (as a demigod should). There will be many moments when his attacks can enter in the annals of “great Democratic presidential rhetoric. This is the man who proclaimed in 2008 that when his opponents bring a knife to the contest, they (his campaign) bring a gun. This is the man how advocated his followers “get in the face” of those friends and family members who disagree with his agenda. The Insulter-in-Chief will have many targets in the years ahead

In any case, how does criticism that is heaped on Republicans when they critique Democrats and Barack Obama (in particular) become praiseworthy when engaged in by Barack Obama because it is “invigorating a base hungry for bare knuckles and bravado”? The derision that greets Republicans or tea partiers is meant to chill free speech..while the praise heaped on Barack Obama is meant to energize the troops.

Sheer liberal hypocrisy (Example #874,286).

KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

Recent Editorial in the Mitchell News Journal and Yancey Common Times.

In these uncertain and dangerous times it is vitally important that “you know who you are”. If someone directly asked you what your fundamental beliefs and principles are, would you be able to answer other than saying “I am a Democrat, Republican or Independent”? In these politically polarizing times, party politics are completely unimportant. Principles, values and character are what counts. With the passing of the Health Care bill, we have just had the worst week in recent history for the Constitution and the basic foundation of this great country and it is time for people to really evaluate what the believe.
I can proudly and without shame tell you what my fundamental beliefs are and I am not talking about party politics. I am a Christian, I am not saying I am the best Christian, but I firmly believe in God and Jesus. I believe in our Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I believe that this country was divinely inspired. I believe in the premise of personal responsibility and even more so, personal liberty. I believe that people should be allowed to succeed and even more importantly fail based on their own merits. I believe that our leaders, local, state and national, should be men and women of virtue and moral character. I believe that charity starts at home and in our communities and churches. I believe that we should treat others as we would like to be treated. I believe that the government does not belong in our homes, our schools, the raising of our children or in our churches. I believe in both the basic good and potential for evil in all people. Most of all, I believe that our founders were men of incredible foresight and had almost a prophetic ability to predict the rise and fall of great nations at the hands of evil and corrupt Men. I believe in “American Exceptionalism”, which doesn’t mean I don’t acknowledge that as a country we have made mistakes. I also believe with all of my heart and soul that most Americans hold the same basic beliefs and that we have allowed ourselves to be asleep at the wheel for decades while the politicians pitted us against each other. It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to examine ourselves and our beliefs and then stand up and fight for them.

 I welcome responses to this letter and hope that you will take a moment and really think about your core beliefs and fundamental principles!

Obama waves magic wand


Posted: April 21, 2010
1:00 am Eastern

© 2010

The Washington Post news story read like this: “President Obama mandated Thursday that hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and allow same-sex couples to share medical power of attorney, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans.”

I’ve been in the news business for 30 years. I taught journalism at a major university. I may be something of a newsroom relic, but I was around when “gay” still meant happy.

So, let me tell you how that story should have read: “Barack Hussein Obama waved his magic wand Thursday and created a new special privilege applying only to men and women based on their sexual proclivities – forcing hospitals across the country to permit visitation rights and medical power of attorney to partners of homosexual and lesbian patients.”

Make no mistake about it: This is a perfect illustration of where Obama and company want to take America – granting approved classes of people politically protected special privileges.

I won’t call them “rights,” because, as our Founding Fathers understood, we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. Government can’t bestow rights. It can only protect them or abrogate them.

Here’s your chance to participate in the restoration of America! Join Joseph Farah at WorldNetDaily’s Taking America Back national conference this fall

Note that his magic wand did not grant the same privileges to celibate roommates. It did not grant the same privileges to lifelong friends. It did not grant the same privileges to paid caretakers of the elderly and infirm. It did not grant the same privileges even to those shacking up together outside of marriage if they happen to be of the opposite sex.

Thus, we can see that this was not an act of human compassion and kindness. It was, instead, another clearly unconstitutional action designed to keep a small but vocal and wealthy class of people aligned with him politically. It was another action designed to flout the law of the land and claim for himself powers nowhere authorized in the Constitution for a president, or, for that matter, even the Congress of the United States.

Neither can Obama honestly state his action is about ending discrimination. Because, as I have pointed out, it actually isdiscriminatory. Previously, the rules and regulations and operating procedures of most hospitals treated everyone the same. Everyone operated under the exact same rules. After Obama’s magic wand was waved, one group, based on sexual behavior, suddenly operated under a different set of rules.

Where is all this leading?

Officially, of course, Obama has said he is opposed to same-sex marriage.

After an action like this, you have to ask yourself why.

Of course, it shouldn’t take you too long to answer your own question: The only reason Obama says he does not support same-sex marriage is because overwhelmingly Americans disagree with him. He knows taking such a position puts him directly at odds with every expression of opinion in polls and referenda conducted in the U.S.

(Column continues below)

So Obama has chosen to move America in that direction incrementally, all the while lying about not having the goal in the first place. It’s clear he also believes in “affirmative action” based on sexual proclivities. That’s why he has made a point of hiring so many homosexuals and lesbians – touting them as minority hires and hailing his own sensitivity and compassion.

Now, maybe you want to know how that magic wand works. Obama managed this feat simply by directing the Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit “discrimination” in hospital visitation. If hospitals don’t heed his tyrannical, extra-constitutional directive, he will see that their Medicare and Medicaid funding is pulled. Imagine the kind of power he will have over hospitals when the new health-care legislation kicks in.

There was some truth in that Washington Post account: “Obama’s actions are the latest attempt by his administration to advance the agenda of a constituency that strongly supported his presidential campaign. In his first 15 months in office, he has hailed the passage of hate-crime legislation and held the first Gay Pride Day celebration at the White House. Last month, Obama’s top military and defense officials testified before Congress in favor of repealing of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy for gays in the armed forces.”

That’s really what this action is all about – pandering to a special-interest group, extending privileges based on sexual behavior.

What do I think about this?

Disgusting, illegal, immoral, contemptuous, disingenuous.

Did I leave anything out?

PRUDEN: Surrendering an ally is no strategy at all

By Wesley Pruden

Barack Obama has come up with an interesting strategy for dealing with the evildoers of the world. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Surrender your friends, if necessary.

He wants to make Israel, our oldest and only reliable friend in the Middle East, the guinea pig to see whether the strategy works. What appeared to be a minor flap between old friends only a fortnight ago now looks like an exploitable opportunity for the man who learned about who’s evil in the world from a crazy Jew-baiting preacher in Chicago.

The public scolding of Israel and the warning that it must make nice with those determined to “wipe it off the map” are now revealed to be tactics in the plan to make the Middle East over in a way to please the Islamic radicals. The observant among us have seen this coming. America’s true friends – Britain, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Norway and Poland in addition to Israel – have been getting the back of Mr. Obama’s hand from the day he took his oath. The commitment to constitutional government and the ancient traditions of intellectual freedom that make up the cultural heritage of the West have been snubbed when not ignored, the natural allies of America lectured to when not insulted.

We’re told that it’s not nice, and maybe even racist, to notice that Michelle Obama, the elegant first lady who does so many things well, has cultivated her husband’s talent for strategic snobbery. She once conceded that she only became proud of America when her husband got to the brink of the presidency, and in a remarkable video of a 2008 appearance that surfaced only this spring, she told of their visiting “his home country in Kenya.” Unless she was conceding that she, too, is a “birther,” she meant that Kenya is his ancestral and cultural home. This could explain a lot, and it certainly offers insights now into his determination to discard the Israelis in the affections of Americans and replace them with nations alien to the affections of most Americans. Why retain an emotional attachment to the sources of American law and literature when you could bow to the Saudi king and court the leaders of Iran, Syria and Venezuela?

Nothing would please the enemies and adversaries of America – the “outliers,” in the trendy term of the moment – like putting the Jews in their place. Mr. Obama and some of his wise men, particularly in the State Department, which has traditionally looked for occasions to lend a hand to the Arab tormentors of Israel, now see their opportunity to impose a “settlement” of the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians. Mr. Obama finally put his game in play this week when he told a press conference that resolving the conflict was “a vital national security interest of the United States.” Describing the conflict in these not-so-vague terms gives him the opportunity to prescribe any solution, however malignant or fanciful, just that way. The president, any president, must put the “vital national security interest” of the United States first and foremost. Who could argue with that?

Presidents before him, Democrat and Republican, have regarded Israel’s right to survive as unquestioned and inviolate, bound up with America’s own traditions of democratic government, and Mr. Obama continues to pay lip service to the American vow to defend Israel’s right to survive. But lip service is not much defense against rockets, gunfire and suicide bombs and the contempt of the despots of the world. Conflicts like the continuing small-bore war in the Middle East end up, the president says, “costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.” Anyone can see where that argument goes.

This is of a piece with the remarks of Gen. David H. Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, to Congress that “the lack of progress” in the Middle East creates a “hostile environment” for the United States. True enough, and the general’s frustration is understandable (and shared). Wars have always been dangerous places to be, which is exactly why we send soldiers to such places. If only the Germans had not been so hostile, the Americans and the British could have had a day at the beach on D-Day. Alas, hostile the environment was, and there was no picnic. But the civilized world can be glad it never occurred to President Roosevelt to surrender France.

Calif. lawmakers mix scouting with sexual politics

By CATHY BUSSEWITZ

Minority Republican lawmakers sponsored a resolution this week honoring the 100-year anniversary of the Boy Scouts. This being California, the political equivalent of a school-yard brawl broke out.

Democrats ultimately killed the resolution after criticizing the Boy Scouts for excluding homosexuals. Predictably, Republicans became indignant and accused Democrats of defaming a cherished American institution.

It didn’t end there.

Democrats had introduced a resolution of their own honoring the Girl Scouts and included language that noted the organization does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.

That drew yet more indignation from Republicans, with one GOP lawmaker accusing Democrats of improperly introducing sexuality into what should have been innocent proclamations of support for the two iconic youth groups.

“I would love to honor the Girl Scouts,” said Assemblywoman Diane Harkey, R-Laguna Niguel. “I just don’t understand why this chamber wants to sexualize children.”

The Boy Scout brouhaha started in the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. After Republicans introduced the anniversary resolution, some Democratic lawmakers equated the Boy Scouts’ policy of excluding gays with racism.

“Were the policy of the Boy Scouts to be that we exclude all African-Americans or Asian-Americans or Latinos, or any minority group, I don’t think there would be a single member of the Legislature that would commend them,” the Judiciary Committee’s chairman, Los Angeles Democrat Mike Feuer, said in an interview later.

The resolution died in committee, wounding Republicans.

The Republicans say they were further incensed when they asked the Democrats to remove the line in the Girl Scouts resolution that honored the organization’s acceptance of any girl regardless of her sexual orientation. But the Girl Scouts resolution passed out of the committee unchanged.

“Equality for gays and lesbians shouldn’t have to be an issue that’s brought down to our children’s level,” said Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Diamond Bar, an Eagle Scout and author of the Boy Scouts resolution. “Political agendas at the Capitol got in the way of this.”

Feuer said he was never asked to amend the Girl Scouts resolution, calling the Republican claims “utterly false.”

The Girl Scouts resolution advanced Thursday to the Assembly floor, where the partisan sniping continued.

When it was time for the Assembly to vote, Assembly Majority Leader Fiona Ma, D-San Francisco, asked members for a simple voice vote, the typical way to approve resolutions.

But after it passed on the voice vote, Assemblywoman Lori Saldana, a San Diego Democrat who authored the Girl Scouts resolution, asked for an additional roll call vote. That meant each lawmaker’s vote would be a matter of record.

Republicans, of course, objected. Hagman said GOP lawmakers wanted to commend the Girl Scouts but did not want be on the record condoning their stance on sexual orientation. The resolution passed the 80-member house 48-4, with most Republicans abstaining.

Girl Scouts of America spokeswoman Michelle Tompkins said the organization was pleased with the honor given by California lawmakers and proud of its long tradition of including anyone.

In the end, California honored the Girl Scouts but not the Boy Scouts – which issued a statement saying it appreciated the effort.

“This is a long-standing societal issue,” Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith said regarding the group’s membership policies.

The Girl Scouts resolution will now be taken up in the Senate.   http://apnews.myway.com/article/20100416/D9F4A8981.html

And CBS “let” him?

:
Andy Rooney said on ’60 Minutes’ a few weeks back:

‘I don’t think being a minority
makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The
only things I can think of that are truly
discriminatory are things like the United Negro
College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment
Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have
things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud
Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss
White America ; and see what happens…Jesse Jackson
will be knocking down your door.

Guns do not make you a killer. I
think killing makes you a killer. You can kill
someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is
trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the
Boy Scouts for a reason, which is why there are no
girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE
YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE ?

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is
not a phobia, it is an
opinion.

I have the right ‘NOT’ to be
tolerant of others because they are different,
weird, or tick me off.

When 70%
of the people who get arrested are black, in cities
where 70% of the population is black, that is not
racial profiling; it is the Law of Probability.

I believe that if you are
selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a
newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in
English! As a matter of fact, if you want to
be an American citizen, you should have to speak
English!

My father and
grandfather didn’t die in vain so you can leave the
countries you were born in to come over and
disrespect ours.

I think the
police should have every right to shoot you if you
threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you
can’t understand the word ‘freeze’ or ’stop’ in
English, see the above lines..

I don’t think just because you were not born in this
country, you are qualified for any special loan
programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax
breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop,
trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of
certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars
to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they
could come over here and tell us our constitution is
a living document and open to their
interpretations.

I don’t hate
the rich; I don’t pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and
television. That doesn’t stop you from watching
them.

I think Bill Gates has
every right to keep every penny he made and continue
to make more. If it ticks you off, go and
invent the next operating system that’s better, and
put your name on the building.

It doesn’t take a whole village
to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to
stand up to the kid
and say ‘NO!’ when necessary.

I think tattoos and piercings are fine if you want
them, but please don’t pretend they are a political
statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip
ring heals. I don’t want to look at your ugly
infected mouth as you serve me French fries!

I am sick of ‘Political
Correctness.’ I know a lot of black people, and not
a single one of them was born in Africa ,
so how can they be ‘African-Americans’?
Besides, Africa
is a continent. I don’t go around saying I am a
European-American because my great, great, great,
great, great, great grandfather was
from
Europe .
I am proud to be from America
and nowhere else.

And if you

I
PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE
TO THE FLAG,

NATION
UNDER
GOD,
INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY
AND JUSTICE
FOR ALL!

I was asked to send this on if I
agree or delete if I don’t. It is said that 86% of
Americans believe in God.. Therefore I have a very
hard time understanding why there is such a problem
in having ‘In God We Trust’ on our money and having
‘God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don’t we just
tell the 14% to BE QUIET!!!

If you agree, pass this on, if not
delete.

ACLU Cover Up

Liberty Counsel’s team of attorneys has exposed the
ACLU’s illegal cover-up of critical information
as they tried to CRIMINALIZE prayer in the public
schools of Santa Rosa County, Florida. These
revelations will now have a huge impact on the
ACLU’s nationwide efforts to silence Christians
and ban public prayer. Please see my important
message below – Mat

This morning, I was on the Fox and Friends television show
to discuss the implications of our exposure of a startling
cover-up by the ACLU – and what that finding means in our
on-going efforts to confront and defeat that group’s
ultraliberal, anti-faith agenda.

Appearing with me was Chaz Riley, student body President
of Milton High School, who was censored from even saying
“God bless you” in an address! The ACLU’s chilling impact
in this school district has been so severe that Christian
teachers are literally forced to hide in closets if they
want to share a word of prayer or have a conversation with
religious content.

But, thank God, here is what we were able to bring to light
about the ACLU’s bullying…

The ACLU intentionally HID the fact that their anonymous
clients graduated from Santa Rosa School District less than
four weeks after their infamous “Consent Decree” was issued!
Further, their clients no longer had any interaction with
the school system after they graduated, so there were
literally NO PLAINTIFFS from that point forward – for
nearly a full year now!

Without clients that have a legal interest in the litigation,
the ACLU was barred from continuing to litigate against
the people of Santa Rosa County. The ACLU knew that.
Any first year law student would know that!

Yet, the ACLU CONTINUED to torment well-respected,
upstanding educators and administrators, charging three
of them with CRIMINAL CONTEMPT that could have led to
prison time, huge fines, and loss of their state
retirement benefits – all the while stonewalling the
fact that that their plaintiffs were long gone.

Three highly-principled public servants went through a
hellish torment while the ACLU knowingly broke they law
by failing to disclose they had no further case.

Daniel, this is a truly egregious offense! The
cover-up was exposed while my team performed detailed
exploratory work in our efforts to get the ACLU’s
unconstitutional Consent Decree thrown out of federal
court.

It appears that we will soon be able to deal
the ACLU a SEVERE BLOW in this case. In fact,
we intend to so thoroughly expose their blatant
disregard of the law that they will be sent
packing – beaten and humiliated!

Then, we intend to petition the court to SEVERELY
SANCTION the ACLU for their shameful deception.

We expect that will put an end to the deceit
employed by the ACLU in Santa Rosa County. But
our nationwide fight against this well-funded,
anti-faith organization of legal bullies will
continue until they stop their outrageous,
agenda-driven attacks on our religious liberties!

To help us conclusively end the ACLU’s abuse in Santa Rosa County,
Florida, and derail their next attempted shake-down of a small
public administration or school system, please go here:


http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=26895&CID=310&RID=24052494

++How it all started in Northwest Florida.

Please allow me to give you a quick refresher on what has
become a highly significant battle for religious freedom.
We have been deeply involved in defending teachers,
administrators and students in Santa Rosa County, Florida,
for many months now.

First, the ACLU dispatched a small army of attorneys in a
highly orchestrated attempt to CRIMINALIZE virtually any
expression of Christianity – even praying before a meal.

In truth, this was a test of a new strategy hatched in some
agenda-driven meeting of the ACLU’s national leadership.
The hapless school system in Santa Rosa County was chosen
for a “test drive” of their latest plot – a strategy that
was intended to lead to a nationwide reign of oppression.

In August and September of 2009, we beat back the ACLU’s
legal attack against three Santa Rosa County school employees
over alleged violations of the Consent Order involving
simple mealtime prayers.

With a lot of prayer support and intense legal work, we got
all charges against our clients dropped! After this
humiliating defeat, the ACLU tried to save face by
increasing the pressure on the school district and
encouraging more “informants” to play ball.

Since our most recent courtroom victory in December 2009
until their cover-up began to unravel, the ACLU has been
able to continue terrorizing godly men and women in Santa
Rosa County because of the outrageous, anti-Christian
Consent Order they wrote (and a federal judge signed),
which is still hanging over the school system and its
employees.

The ACLU has filed a similar case in a Tennessee school district,
in which the public officials have chosen to submit to ACLU
demands rather than fight back. That was the original fact
pattern in Santa Rosa County, as well, before our three
courageous clients asked for Liberty Counsel’s help.

++We now have a stellar opportunity to teach the ACLU
bullies a painful lesson.

We’ve been fighting the ACLU’s Consent Order so that school
officials in Santa Rosa County and school districts across
the country won’t have the ACLU’s threat of CRIMINAL
charges hanging over them for such common expressions
of Christianity as praying over a meal or saying
“God bless you”!

Liberty Counsel has asked the Federal District Court to
vacate the Consent Order and every other decision it has
rendered since the graduation of the original two
plaintiffs. In addition to asking that the court severely
sanction the ACLU for its deception, we will bring
attention to the School District’s misguided decision
to cave in and pay the ACLU $200,000 in attorney’s fees.

++We’ve likely won this battle, but the war continues.

This is a long-term war we refuse to lose. But as you know,
the ACLU has virtually unlimited resources and a “war chest”
of hundreds of millions of dollars. That is how they were
able to assign 6 (six!) of their senior attorneys to
bludgeon one small school district in Florida’s panhandle region.

The fact is, we need your financial help to continue our
nationwide fight against the ACLU’s band of bullies.

Daniel, would you prayerfully consider making a
special gift to Liberty Counsel right now so we can finish
off the Santa Rosa County battle and drop-kick the ACLU out
of the region? We also need help fighting their oppressive
anti-faith strategy across the nation while continuing other
vital efforts. Please go here:


http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=26896&CID=310&RID=24052494

+ + Liberty Counsel needs your prayers as never before.

Just as importantly, please be in prayer for our litigation
team. Prayer is a vital component of everything we do at
Liberty Counsel, especially when we are battling a twisted
adversary in a case as pivotal as this one has become.

Of course, I also pray you will consider investing in our
efforts to rip the hideous “bully club” out of the ACLU’s
hands once and for all. Please go here:


http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=26897&CID=310&RID=24052494

With the help of thousands of friends like you, we can
derail the ACLU’s manipulation of our judicial system and
prevent them from bringing CRIMINAL CHARGES against
public school employees for demonstrating the simplest
expressions of their Christian faith.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Mathew D. Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

P.S. Our case in Santa Rosa County has significant implications
for every community in America. The ACLU’s aim is to repeat
this strategy throughout the nation – even in communities
like yours. This time, in Santa Rosa County, we were able
to catch them blatantly cheating to get their desired end.
But they recently began this process in a small Tennessee
school system and we expect it to erupt in more cities
and towns, especially if they gain momentum in their early
targeted locations.

Please don’t let the ACLU succeed in turning our public
institutions into prayerless wastelands! We’ve proven that
