Action Alert

  Cornyn/Cuellar border bill lets Obama off the hook; Call Congress and urge them to oppose

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) have introduced legislation that they believe will help end the ongoing crisis on the Southern border. The HUMANE Act, H.R.5114 and S.2611, centers around the 2008 human trafficking bill that's been wrongly blamed for much of the ongoing illegal-alien border surge.
While a change in this law is necessary, it deflects attention away from the real reason for the surge of illegal border crossers along the U.S.-Mexico border - the Obama Administration's refusal to enforce immigration laws and its DACA policy that grants legal status and work permits to illegal-alien minors.
Call Congress to oppose
House GOP Leadership has signaled that it would like to bring the House version of the bill to the floor for a vote before Congress breaks for the August recess at the end of next week.
Please call your three Members of Congress and urge them to oppose the Cornyn/Cuellar bill and to oppose any emergency funding for the border crisis until the Obama Administration begins enforcing existing laws.
 Call Congress

Once you've called your three Members of Congress, please call House GOP Leadership and express your opposition to the Cornyn/Cuellar HUMANE Act.

It is about TIME

Center For Individual Freedom

       It's about time... Congressman Steve Stockman has just introduced a resolution (HR 664) to throw Lois Lerner in jail. 

       It's for real... it's been a long time coming... and the beauty of Stockman's resolution is that all it takes is a majority in the House of Representatives to pass the resolution to send Lois Lerner – the Obama IRS official at the heart of the conservative targeting scandal – straight to jail. 

       Harry Reid can't stop it. Barack Obama can't stop it and he can't pardon her. If the Republican-led House of Representatives passes this resolution, the House Sergeant at Arms will then go straight to Lois Lerner's home (hopefully with network television cameras rolling), perp-walk her to a D.C. jail cell, and she'll stay there either until the next Congress goes into session in January of 2015 or until she sings like a canary about the details of the targeting scandal and all those involved. 

       The American people deserve to know what Barack Obama and other high-ranking officials in his White House knew, and when they knew it and Lois Lerner is the key. 

       But... if HR 664 is going to come to a vote and pass, our elected officials need to hear from you right here and right now!

"I Don't Care Who's Gonna Be Fired. I Wanna Know Who's Going To Jail."

       That's what John Boehner said; but when it came time to act upon his words, he had the audacity to ask Barack Obama's chief apparatchik, Eric Holder, to do the deed for him. 

       Here's what Congressman Stockman said upon filing his resolution: "Asking the Justice Department to prosecute Lois Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke. The Obama administration will not prosecute the Obama administration. How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked? It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the president." 

       Indeed... the American people are still waiting for Eric Holder to prosecute himself over Fast and Furious. The problem is not that members of the Republican leadership in Congress are fools. The problem is that they believe that you're a fool. 

       Stockman added: "It's time for the House to stop tacitly endorsing this administration's illegal activity by refusing to hold him accountable. I expect Democrats to defend and even praise criminal activity. The question is whether Republican leadership will join them in mocking the House and breaking the law." 

       Enough is enough. John Boehner stated on multiple occasions that he wants to"know who's going to jail" for the IRS targeting of conservatives. The American people took that statement as a promise and we're going to force John Boehner and the rest of the Republican leadership in Congress to keep that promise.

April May June 2014
We greet you in Christ’s Name.  Sermon outlines and AUDIO links for the latest lessons are on our website. We invite you to our Face Book Page. Pastor completed a study of the Apostolic Sign Gifts. He began a new series in the afternoon services on “An Arm Chair Tour of Israel.”  More audio sermons are available on Sermon.net/tacwash. Brother Jim Turner finished EG Cook’s Book “Let’s Study Revelation” in our Sunday School Bible Study.  Visitors come and go. Pray for Penny, Judy, Forrest, Grace, & Donald.   Pastor attended the April Bible Conference in Michigan at the Home Baptist Church, Pastor Dan Gordon and preached on “A Good Soldier of Jesus Christ.”    
First Friday of the Month Fellowship is always good.  We are now saving a link to the FFF audio on the front page of our Church website.  In April, Elder Paul Sandelin preached on “The Lord Opens Eyes.”  In May, Elder Jim Tweet preached on “An Evil Heart of Unbelief.” In June, Elder Jim Turner preached on “Three Gospel Pillars in Isa.53:6.”  
Our Tract a Day Club recorded 225 tracts handed out this quarter by Pastor. No record of any others involved in this effort. Jacob graduated from High School and has plans to attend WWU in Bellingham this fall.  Abby is finishing her College courses there and is staying in Bellingham for work.  Laura continues to study at UW at Tacoma.  Blaine is doing well at Liberty U. in Virginia. He has some great opportunities as an intern this summer in Washington D.C and later in Texas working with David Barton and the Watchmen on the Wall. 
Brother Skip’s heart specialist said that his heart is only working at about 40% and nothing can be done to improve it.  Sister Marion is doing better with her hip replacement.  Brother Turner’s annual cancer check up was cancer free.  His high red cell blood count still needs regular checks.  Sister Maxine is faithful in services but struggling with medicine costs. Pastor missed one Lord’s Day service due to a high fever but is better now.  The rest of us are pressing on by grace.     
Be praying for Missions.  Elder Robert Ellis is working under the authority of this congregation in Ireland.  He is doing a good work.  We are planning an organization meeting, Lord willing, in early October and Pastor is saving up for that trip.  We are also helping with the mission work in Seattle to the Latino community in South Park where Ted Tweet is laboring and with the work in Mabini, Mindanao where Elder Dan Baldemor is laboring, and with the work in Romania where Elder Raul  Enyedi labors.  Although we are limited in what we can give financially, we pray earnestly and with out ceasing for brethren laboring on the mission fields of Oklahoma, Kentucky, West Virginia, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Australia, India and Thailand.  Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for repentance in the USA.  AMEN.

January February March 2014
Pray for revival. Sermon outlines and AUDIO links for the latest lessons are on our website. We invite you to our Face Book Page. Pastor completed the study of Song of Solomon in our afternoon services. More sermons are available on www.Sermon.net/tacwash. Brother Jim Turner is using EG Cook’s Book “Let’s Study Revelation” in our Sunday School Bible Study.  Visitors come and go. Elder David O’Neal, from Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Tulsa Oklahoma preached some good sermons in our 34th  anniversary services in January.  Audio clips for all these sermons are also on the front page of our church website. 
First Friday of the Month Fellowship is always a blessing. We are now saving a link to the FFF audio on the front page of our Church website.  In January, we opened the “AP” Box and counted 132 specific answers to prayer in 2013.  In February, Brother Ted Tweet preached “Why Good Moral Men Go to Hell.”  In March, Brother Jim Hunt brought a lesson on “Born unto Trouble.”  
Our Tract a Day Club recorded 330 tracts handed out this quarter by Pastor. No record of any others involved in this effort. We long for the salvation of souls and for those that have dropped out, to get right with the Lord and His congregation.
Brother Skip had another stay in Good Samaritan Hospital this quarter but is home now and doing better.  Sister Marion had to have some more physical therapy for her hip replacement which helped.  Brother Turner has been battling a high red cell blood count but the last report seems to have it under control now.  Sister Maxine has her ups and downs but is faithful to be in services. The rest of us are pressing on with the usual colds that come and go.  
Thank you again for praying for Missions.  Elder Robert Ellis is doing work directly under the authority of this congregation. Brother Ellis, in Ireland, is doing a good work.  We hope some time this year, we can arrange to hold an organization meeting for a true New Testament congregation there in Cork County Ireland. We received word from the Philippines in January that our beloved Missionary, Elder Cresencio Baldemor went home to be with the Lord.  News like this is bitter/sweet.  Bitter because we will miss him and sweet because we know he is with the Lord and we will join him soon at the feet of Jesus.  Brother Cresencio’s health was failing and his preaching point in Mabini has been taken over by our daughter church in Maco.  Elder Dan Baldemor, Cresencio’s son, holds services in Mabini every Lord’s Day afternoon when the morning services are done in Maco.  Dan has established a bank account for receiving love offerings to help in this work.  We are sending the funds that we sent to brother Baldemor’s ministry to this new account.  They need help to buy some property for their meeting place in Mabini and have found a lot that will cost about $3500.  We continue to support the work in Romania where Elder Raul and Brothers Aurel are doing an outstanding job of reaching many souls with the truth.  We are now helping with the mission work in Seattle to the Latino community in South Park where Ted Tweet is laboring.  Although we are limited in what we can give financially, we pray earnestly and with out ceasing for brethren laboring on the mission fields of Oklahoma, Kentucky, West Virginia, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Australia, and Thailand.  Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for repentance in the USA.  AMEN.

July August September 2013
We wish attendance in the 3rd quarter of 2013 were better than it was.  Pray for us. Sermon outlines and AUDIO links for the latest lessons are on our website. Visit our Face Book Page too. Pastor continues the study of Christ & Prayer in our afternoon services. More access to audio sermons is available on www.Sermon.net/tacwash. Brother Jim Turner has been reading from the book Mabel Clement in our Sunday School Bible Study. Pastor passed out about 140 gospel tracts this quarter and some of the members passed some out too but did not log in on the clipboard, so we cannot report their numbers.
The Bible Conference over the 4th of July week end in Naples, Idaho was outstanding.  Almost all of us were able to go this year.  We put a sign on our meetinghouse door that said, "Gone Fishing for men in Idaho".  The devil tried to discourage us with car trouble before the Conference but it all worked out.  The Turners actually had to rent a car to drive to Idaho. 
Bible Believers Baptist Church members were very gracious hosts and went out of their way to make us all feel comfortable.  We enjoyed the target practice in the woods and the wonderful fireworks display on the 4th in Bonners Ferry.  We have the conference preaching and music captured on DVD for any interested in that. 
The best news we have this quarter is two professions of faith.  Jacob Russell and Blaine Conzatti both came forward in July asking for biblical immersion.  One Lord's Day afternoon, we adjourned to Lake Bradley and had a baptismal serve there and have now welcomed Jacob and Blaine into the membership of TLBC here in Tacoma. 
Brother Skip “escaped” from Good Samaritan Hospital.  Please keep Skip and Teresa in your prayers.  Sister Maxine took a couple of falls again.  We continue to pray for our grown up children and our grandchildren.  Pastor has started sending his grandchildren little notes to encourage Bible study.  Remember others who no longer want to be in our services faithfully anymore.  We pray for the adult children of other preacher brethren all across the land that learned to attend worship services all their lives but have now dropped out and show little interest in hearing the truth for which their parents stand.  

Our First Friday of the Month Fellowship is always a blessing. We are now saving a link to the FFF audio clips on our church website.  In July, the FFF was held in conjunction with the Idaho meeting. In August, Elder Paul Sandelin preached on "Stablish you in every good word and work."  In September, Pastor Killion preached on "The Eyes of the LORD."  Thank you again for praying for our two Missionaries sent out directly under the authority of this congregation: Bob Ellis, in Ireland, and Cresencio Baldemor, in the Philippines.  Sister Baldemor passed away this month. Please pray for both of our Missionaries and especially the Baldemor family in their loss.  Jesus is coming soon.  Even so, COME LORD JESUS!  Amen. 

CRPD is Back Again.


We got word late yesterday that the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee has scheduled a hearing on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) for Tuesday, July 22nd at 10:00AM ET.
CRPD threatens U.S. sovereignty and parental rights.  This treaty could put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children. While CRPD may, on the surface, appear to protect those with disabilities, it actually gives the government the power, with direction from the U.N., to decide what is best for our children.
Believe me, if ratifying this treaty would help anyone with disabilities, Karen and I, as parents of a special needs daughter, would be the first ones to support it. 
But it doesn't.  
We have been anticipating that CRPD would come up again despite its defeat in 2012.  Advocates for CRPD have been fighting hard behind the scenes to sway the minds of key Senators in an effort to get them to change their positions. In addition, I think the White House knows they are likely to lose Senate seats this fall so now is their best chance to push this treaty through -- especially while the public is focused on other issues like the border crisis, and the IRS and VA scandals.  
I can tell already by the communications out there that supporters of CRPD are doing all they can to pressure well-meaning folks to support this treaty. 
Please contact your Senators right away and make sure they know that you are against this treaty. Even if they heard from you in 2012, they may be fooled into believing public opinion is changing if they only hear from the other side.  You can contact them quickly and easily through our email tool which you can access here and call them through the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.
Please take action with us NOW so that CRPD is defeated once and for all.  And don't forget to multiply your voice by enlisting 5 more people to take action with you!

Cops Ignore Theft of Pro-Life Display

Police Stand By as Protester Steals 

Pro-Life Display

The police do not have to agree with a position to enforce the law.
Theft is theft.  Pro-life groups have been fighting abortion extremists for decades. It's sad, however, when civil officials who have sworn to uphold the law ignore it.
Maybe they've taken a page out of President Obama's political playbook.
If there is a dispute with a business because of access, it's the obligation of the politic to to work out a solution.  The following is from Mark Harrington of Created Equal. Watch the video for evidence the
criminal actions and the indifference of the police.
On Thursday July 17, 2014, Created Equal visited Jackson, MS, site of the state's last remaining abortion facility as part of Day 4 of our Summer Justice Ride.  Upon arrival, and despite several attempts by Created Equal's Mark Harrington to convince police to intervene, our property was stolen while police stood idly by.

"The City of Jackson is required to guarantee everyone the right to free speech, not assist our opposition in interfering in the exercise of our speech.  Police allowed interference of our constitutionally protected first amendment activity.  This kind of outrageous interference of free speech will not be allowed to stand." – Mark Harrington, Executive Director, Created Equal.
We have filed charges against Mike Peters, the perpetrator, who is the owner of Fondren Corner which is located at 2906 N. State St, Jackson, MS—across the street from the abortion center.
Unfortunately, Jackson has a reputation that precedes itself. The Jackson Police Department has a long history of harassment against and targeting of pro-life advocates. In 2006, Pro-Life Mississippi and some of its members sued several police officers for their pattern of violating the rights of pro-life speakers.
In, 2008, the City signed a consent decree, agreeing that they would no longer interfere with the free speech rights of these advocates, and also agreeing to mandatory annual training for police officers in respect for the First Amendment rights of all speakers.

However, as soon as the Court's jurisdiction over the decree expired, Jackson police resumed their pattern of singling out pro-life speakers for harassment and false arrests. Pro-life advocates in Jackson are preparing to sue the City for its violation of their civil rights.

Anti-Hobby Lobby Bill FAILED

Attempt to overturn the SCOTUS ruling on 
Hobby Lobby FAILED. 

By Dave Jolly

Liberals, feminists and socialists reacted strongly to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties. Some of them reminded me of biblical characters who tore their clothes and covered themselves in ashes as they wept in sorrow.

Senate Democrats were bound and determined to overturn the Supreme Court ruling by passing a new bill, they call ‘Not My Boss’s Business Act’ that would force employers to provide contraception coverage to their employees by preventing them from using a religious-freedom law to opt out. They care nothing about the religious values of anyone. All they care about is pushing their socialist health agenda down everyone’s throats without caring if we choke on it or not.

If they are calling their bill the ‘Not My Boss’s Business Act’, that means they are saying that it’s none of the employers business to get involved in women’s healthcare or contraceptive choices. So if it’s none of their business, why should they have to pay for it? It doesn’t make sense to force someone to pay for something that’s none of their business, does it?

In the arguments that took place on the Senate floor, Republicans reminded the Democrats that in the current Obamacare laws employers cannot prohibit or restrict women from accessing contraception, it’s just that those with sufficient religious objections should not have to pay for it.

Senate Democrats needed 60 votes to pass the measure. They came up short with a 56-43 vote. Three GOP senators, Mark Kirk (R-IL), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) voted with democrats. Surprisingly, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid voted against the bill, but said he did so in order to revive the bill before year’s end.

GOP Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Deb Fischer (NE) introduced a bill that would uphold an employer’s right to object for religious reasons from having to pay for controversial contraception coverage.

Compassionate Conservatives are tinkering with the 2008 Wilburforce Law to try and help address our current Border Crisis.  However, care must be taken not to open the door for what might turn out to be a "Trojan Horse" that leftists will use to push a "comprehensive immigration reform" bill  (amnesty) on a nation that has soundly said NO to such a thing.  With several recent victories in the battle against open borders, it would be a shame now to let the leftists literally had us defeat from among the jaws

Note from Wild Bill

    Americans perish, "president" jokes
Some 23 Americans along with 272 others perished Thursday when warring military factions allegedly shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet over eastern Ukraine.
But who cares?
The occupant of the Oval Office seemingly doesn't. The "president" was in Delaware to give a transportation speech when he announced the news. He said, "Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we're working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority."  What followed was a show of lack of respect and manners, and a show of the true heart of this man.
 He said, "And I've directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home. I want to thank Jeremie for that introduction. Give Jeremie a big round of applause. It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We've got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today. We've got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here. Give them a big round of applause. We love them."  Then there were more jokes...to great applause and laughter.

Acknowledging Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, he said: "Jack Lew's signature is actually on your money, although it's kind of illegible. We teased him when he first became treasury secretary that he was going to have to fix his signature a little bit because it looked just like a caterpillar running along the bottom."
And then he launched into a bragging session about how many jobs he has created, and how those nasty Republicans were getting in the way of creating good union jobs and causing gridlock in rebuilding the national highway system. He said, "That's what right now Republicans in Congress don't seem to be focused on. But until they do get focused on it, I'm going to do whatever I can to create jobs rebuilding America on my own." 
From the official White House   transcript there was no solemn moment for the victims of the plane crash.
No more mention of the tragedy-
-just jokes and blame and self aggrandizing.

This is a "president"   - - of division, lies, irreverence, pride, ego, deception and delusion.
Not judging, just telling it like it is. 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Border Crisis Stories

NumbersUSA Newsletter

  This Issue: Disease, crime, fraud stories beginning to be confirmed about 'Surge' illegals in government's catch & release policies

As we approach the end of the second full month of the border crisis, we're learning more about the impacts it's having on local communities across the country.
A concerning story came out of Lynn, Massachusetts this week where the mayor's office said that adult-aged, illegal aliens were posing as minors and trying to enroll in public schools. Jamie Cerulli, the mayor's chief of staff, said they've had illegal aliens with grey hair claiming that they're 17 years-old, and there's no documentation to prove otherwise.
"If my children went to the public schools, I'd be very uncomfortable with all of these unaccompanied minors [that] are placed in the ninth grade," she told National Review Online.
The school district's superintendent said they've seen hundreds of new students from Central American countries enrolling over the last several years. The situation speaks volumes about the impact the crisis has on local communities and their budgets. Not only does the government know very little about who these individuals actually are, but they're also accessing public services, sticking taxpayers with the bill.
According to our map tracking the government's efforts to move illegal aliens from the border to the interior of the country, at least four locations in the Bay State are housing newly-arrived illegal aliens.
There is also a tragic story coming out of a New Orleans suburb this week after an illegal alien was charged with second-degree murder. The suspect had earlier been caught by Border Patrol last month, given a Notice to Appear, and then released into the general public as part of the Administration's catch-and-release policy.
ABC News is also reporting on what the feds are calling a medical "breakdown" in the handling of illegal aliens who come to the country with an infectious disease. They report on a number of cases of Unaccompanied Alien Children infected with chicken pox, influenza, rare cases of the swine flu, and more. The children are flown from the border to military bases and hospitals, resulting in at least one breakout of pneumonia and influenza on a base in Southern California. Even worse, children are initially screened after being turned over by the Border Patrol to Health and Human Services, but if they're not showing any symptoms of an infectious disease, even though they may be infected, they're still placed on commercial flights and relocated to the interior of the country.
All three stories are examples of how the Obama Administration's policies and inaction since the start of the crisis have a detrimental impact on U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. It also begs the question, why do the feds insist on relocating illegal aliens from the border to communities across the country, endangering the health and safety of Americans?
'Profiting' from Legal and Illegal Immigration
As thousands of illegal aliens pour across the Southern border, Kevin Dinnin doesn't seem to mind. That's because, as president of the Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) organization, he's taking home a $400,000+ salary, while helping the feds transport and house illegal border crossers. The BCFS received more than $190 million in federal grants in recent years to help care for Unaccompanied Alien Children, and $33 million went to pay the salaries for the organization's employees.
BCFS backed out of a deal to purchase (with taxpayer funding) a $50 million luxury resort on the border to house illegal aliens after the deal was publicized. The resort is loaded with amenities, including an olympic-size pool, tennis courts, free wi-fi and cable, and a modern weight room.
As information begins to surface about tens of millions of dollars being paid by the government to various religious denominations and to help keep illegal aliens in this country, questions arise about how that might have affected the efforts by some religious bodies to increase the flow of immigration.
With all the attention on the border, most Americans have missed the news this week that Microsoft will cut 18,000 employees over the next year. Look for Microsoft and FWD.us co-founder, Bill Gates, to intensify his pressure on Congress for more foreign-workers after laying off thousands of American workers.
Keep up the pressure
We've had another week of amazing activism. In the last seven days, you've sent 297,060 faxes to Congress! Check your Action Board for any actions you may have missed and a list of protests that will take place across the country this weekend. Also, be on the lookout on Monday morning for a calling campaign as Congress begins to consider its response to the crisis.
