YOU have the right....

Do you believe foreign terrorists, with known ties to al Qaeda, have the right to remain silent? Do they have the right to an attorney paid for by your hard-earned tax dollars? Do they have a right to a trial by jury of "their peers" in a U.S. civilian court? In other words, do foreign terrorists, who wish to destroy our freedoms by killing innocent Americans, have the same rights as U.S. citizens? Common sense suggests the answer to those questions is a resounding "No!"

Congressman Vern Buchanan just introduced H.R. 4463, the "Military Tribunals for Terrorists Act of 2010” ... a simple piece of legislation which specifically says, "that all foreign terrorists with links to terrorist networks who attack the United States or its Government be considered enemy combatants to be tried by military tribunals instead of civilian courts."

With your help, we're going to bombard our elected officials with Blast Faxes demanding that they rush H.R. 4463 through both Houses of Congress and slap it on Barack Obama's desk without further delay. When we do, we're going to make it perfectly clear that there can be no middle ground or half-measures on H.R. 4463. We're going to make it perfectly clear to our elected officials that they either stand with the American people, and fast-track this legislation through Congress, or they stand with the enemies of America.

Note from GrassFire


Even as the confetti was falling on Scott Brown's victory celebration in Massachusetts, key Democrats were devising an underhanded plan to sneak ObamaCare through Congress. The plan: have the House pass the Senate's version of ObamaCare.

Then to satisfy liberal House members who were opposed tothe Senate bill, Pelosi and Reid have agreed to "fix" it once signed into law by the President. To get around a Republican filibuster, Reid will claim any changes or "fixes" to the bill fall under reconciliation and therefore don't require 60 votes, but rather a simple majority!

In other words, the legislative process will be subverted...Unless you help me spark a massive grassroots uprising that resonates across Capitol Hill, and puts every member of the Senate and the House on notice from citizens who are saying...
"Vote for ObamaCare and I'll vote you out!"

+ + 250,000 Healthcare Ballots Needed ASAP!Just days ago, Grassfire Nation launched an aggressive"ObamaCare" ballot initiative putting lawmakers on notice,and telling them "Vote for ObamaCare and I'll vote you out! "In just a few days, we've already gathered more than 187,000 ballots! Now with news of the Democrats scheme we must be far more aggressive to short-circuit this socialist push. That's why I'm asking all members of my team who may have missed our early call to action to do so right now by clicking here and filling out your ballot:

With your help right now, I believe we can quickly reach250,000 ballots that will be HAND-DELIVERED to every Senate and House office beginning early next week! Larry, there is NO COST to you for this action. We just need you to take immediate action by clicking here now:

God is good

Sign from God

After starting a new diet I altered my drive to the gym to avoid passing my favorite bakery. I accidentally drove by the bakery this morning, and as I approached, there in the window was a host of goodies. I felt this was no accident, so I prayed ... 'God, it's up to you, if you want me to have any of those delicious goodies, create a parking place for me directly in front of the bakery.' And sure enough,

On the eighth time around the block , there it was!

God is so Good!'

We are looking forward to a week of special services at TLBC starting tonight. I'll pick up our guest speaker and his wife, George and Alice Kelley at SEATAC this afternoon. My sermon yesterday was on "Superfluous Spices" and you can see the outline HERE.

Audit the FED

Trillions of dollars are being stolen from the U.S. taxpayer.

Right now, you and I are seeing the worst plundering of a country's wealth in the history of civilization, led by an out of control Federal Reserve. But together you and I CAN put a stop to it all. With your help (including submitting the petition linked below to your Congressman and Senators) today, Representative Ron Paul, Senator Jim DeMint and Campaign for Liberty are ready to fight back, by taking the battle straight to the heart of the problem -- the Federal Reserve itself.

Just think about the scope of the problem for a minute: The massive, outrageous amount of dollars committed to the economic bailouts in recent months totals: More than the socialist New Deal ... More than the entire Iraq debacle ... More than the 1980's savings and loan mess ... More than the Korean War ... COMBINED.

When will it all end? It's time you and I put a stop to a renegade Federal Reserve by exposing the Fed's out of control actions to the American people. Congressman Ron Paul and Senator Jim DeMint have a bill before Congress to do just that, known as the "Audit the Fed" Bill (HR 1207 and S 604).

clear the air

A group primarily of first-term Members of the House of Representatives -- 10 Democrats and 12 Republicans -- has just now introduced a House resolution that would commit the chamber to oppose any mass amnesty.

H. Res. 1026 The Chaffetz/Kratovil No-Amnesty Bill Please go to your Action Board now to send a fax to your own U.S. Representative. You will find a fax that either thanks your Representative for co-sponsoring the anti-amnesty resolution or that asks your Representative to sign on. (However, those of you with a Representative who has already co-sponsored a pro-amnesty bill won't see a new fax.)

Until this resolution, voters have not been able to know which Members of Congress they can count on to oppose a mass legalization of some 12 million illegal aliens. We have been able to know the hundred or so Members of Congress who aggressively are pushing on amnesty because they have co-sponsored amnesty bills. But when a Member who hasn't co-sponsored an amnesty says he/she is against an amnesty, we haven't really known what that means. NOW, THOUGH, WE CAN LOOK TO THIS ANTI-AMNESTY RESOLUTION (H. RES. 1026) TO FIND THE NAMES OF THE MEMBERS WE CAN TRULY TRUST TO VOTE 'NO' ON ANY AMNESTY.

This is a great immediate followup to the election of a no-amnesty Senator from Massachusetts who is filling a seat that has promoted amnesties and foreign-worker increases for 45 years. This effort is being led by two freshmen, Rep. Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Rep. Kratovil (D-Maryland). Other Democrats who are original No-Amnesty co-sponsors are Reps. Nye (Va.), Kagen (Wis.), Murphy (Pa.), Barrow (Ga.), Bright (Ala.), Taylor (Miss.), McIntyre (N.C.), Shuler (N.C.) and Childers (Miss.) Other Republicans signing are Reps. Hunter (Calif.), Jenkins (Kan.), Luetkemeyer (Mo.), Olson (Texas), Fleming (La.), Lummis (Wyoming), Coffman (Colo.), McClintock (Calif.), Posey (Fla.), Roe (Tenn.), Harper (Miss.).

The filing of this resolution means that no Member of Congress can stay on the fence on amnesty now. Either the Members sign on to this No-Amnesty bill, or they signal that they are keeping open the possibility that they will vote FOR an amnesty if one comes up. BILL INCLUDES MANDATORY E-VERIFY AND BORDER SECURITY The short bill has three parts that commit the House of Representatives to: Mandatory E-Verify for all employers for all employees to keep illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs. Infrastructure and manpower to effectively secure and control U.s. borders. NO Amnesty.

The precise language can be read in the story on our home page. The language about amnesty is simply: ". . . any immigration reform proposal adopted by Congress should not legalize, grant amnesty for, or confer any other legal status condoning the otherwise unlawful entry or presence in the United States of any individual."

Here is the statement of Rep. Kratovil (D-Maryland): As a former prosecutor, I am committed to the rule of law. I came to Congress to fight for a common sense approach on immigration reform: enforcing the rules already on the books, punishing those who knowingly choose to violate them, and opposing any plans that reward or incentivize illegal behavior at the expense of those who are trying to play by the rules. This bipartisan resolution recognizes the critical role that legal immigrants have played in our society and lays out the principles that should guide any discussion of immigration reform. I am pleased to join Representatives Chaffetz, Nye, and Hunter as a lead on this important measure.

Statement of Rep. Chaffetz (R-Utah) who got to Congress by defeating the pro-amnesty Republican leader Rep. Cannon in a primary election: Our government has a duty and responsibility to make our first immigration priority the enforcement of existing laws by ensuring that illegal behavior is punished, not rewarded. Any discussion of comprehensive immigration reform must begin with a renewed commitment to enforce our immigration laws. We need to remove the incentives that encourage illegal behavior if we expect to get immigration under control. OK, fellow Americans, let's get your Representative signed onto this bill!

Where is it?

3 dozen lawmakers want proof of Obama eligibility
Proposal would demand state officials independently verify information
Posted: January 18, 201010:01 pm Eastern
By Bob Unruh© 2010 WorldNetDaily

Lawmakers in Arizona have proposed a law that would require state officials to begin independently verifying the accuracy of newly required documents affirming the constitutional eligibility of any candidate for the U.S. presidency.

"Certainly, there has been controversy over President Obama and his birth certificate, where he was born, etc.," state Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, told the Arizona Capitol Times. "It just makes sense and will stop any controversy in the future to just show you are a natural born citizen."

She is one of about three dozen lawmakers to sign on as co-sponsors.
The plan would essentially have the same effect as the federal law proposed by Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla. The provisions of Posey's H.R. 1503 are straightforward:
"To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of President to include with the committee's statement of organization a copy of the candidate's birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution."
The bill also provides: "Congress finds that under … the Constitution of the United States, in order to be eligible to serve as President, an individual must be a natural born citizen of the United States who has attained the age of 35 years and has been a resident within the United States for at least 14 years."

The sponsors' goal is to have the bill become effective for the 2012 presidential election. The legislation now is pending in a House committee and has more than a dozen co-sponsors.
But whatever support it does have, it faces massive obstacles in a House and Senate dominated by Democrats, as well as a president whose own status could be impacted by its requirements.

Rep. Judy Burges, R-Skull Valley, earlier told the East Valley Tribune her plan is not aimed directly at Obama, although she does have concerns about his loyalties. "When someone bows to the king of Saudi Arabia and they apologize for our country around the world, I have a problem with that," she told the newspaper. "We want to make sure that we have candidates that are going to stand up for the United States of America. This is my home. I want to leave my children a better country than I inherited," she said. "Obama has a book and it said, when it came down to it, he would be on the Muslim side," Burges said. "Doesn't that bother you just a little bit?"

Any state adopting – and enforcing – requirements similar to the federal plan would have an equal impact, since the information submitted to meet the requirements presumably would be public.
Demand the truth by joining the petition campaign to make President Obama reveal his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate!
Democrats in the state already are arguing that the plan to demand all presidential candidates submit proof they were born in the U.S. and sign an affidavit stating they are a U.S. citizen is not needed. "He [Obama] clearly met the standards to run for president and hold office as president because the federal government installed him as president in January of last year," said Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a Phoenix Democrat. "The question has been asked and answered."

As WND has reported, however, no controlling legal authority ever directly addressed the question of whether Obama met the U.S. Constitution's requirements to be president, that is being 35 years of age, a resident for at least 14 years and a "natural born citizen."
The proposal, H2442, also would require that the secretary of state in Arizona independently verify that the documents submitted are correct. Any failure could cause the candidate's name to be withheld from the ballot, officials said.

WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President." Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time. Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born. Complicating the situation is Obama's decision to spend sums estimated in excess of $1.7 million to avoid releasing a state birth certificate that would put to rest all of the questions.

WND has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.

The "certification of live birth" posted online and widely touted as "Obama's birth certificate" does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same "short-form" document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true "long-form" birth certificate – which includes information such as the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny.

Oddly, though congressional hearings were held to determine whether Sen. John McCain was constitutionally eligible to be president as a "natural born citizen," no controlling legal authority ever sought to verify Obama's claim to a Hawaiian birth.

Isa. 65:24

See front page of TLBC website for outline of todays sermon " The Sentries Bail Out" here

This story was written by a doctor who worked in South Africa

One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor
ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died leaving us
with a tiny premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter.
We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive, as we had no
incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator).

We also had no special feeding facilities. Although we lived
on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous
drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such
babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in.

Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle.
She came back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling
the bottle, it had burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical
climates). 'And it is our last hot water bottle!' she

As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled milk so in
Central Africa it might be considered no good crying over
burst water bottles They do not grow on trees, and there are
no drug stores down forest pathways.

'All right,' I said, 'put the baby as near the fire as you
safely can, and sleep between the baby and the door to keep it
free from drafts. Your job is to keep the baby warm.'

The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers
with any of the orphanage children who chose to gather with
me. I gave the youngsters various suggestions of things to
pray about and told them about the tiny baby. I explained our
problem about keeping the baby warm enough, mentioning the hot
water bottle, and that the baby could so easily die if it got
chills. I also told them of the two-year-old sister, crying
because her mother had died.

During prayer time, one ten-year old girl, Ruth, prayed with
the usual blunt conciseness of our African children. 'Please,
God' she prayed, 'send us a water bottle. It'll be no good
tomorrow, God, as the baby will be dead, so please send it
this afternoon.'

While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the he prayer, she
added, 'And while You are about it, would You please send a
dolly for the little girl so she'll know You really love her?'

As often with children's prayers, I was put on the spot. Could
I honestly say,'Amen'. I just did not believe that God could
do this. Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything, the Bible
says so. But there are limits, aren't there? The only way God
could answer this particular prayer would be by sending me a
parcel from homeland. I had been in Africa for almost four
years at that time, and I had never, ever received a parcel
from home. Anyway, if anyone did send me a parcel, who would
put in a hot water bottle? I lived on the equator! Halfway
through the afternoon, while I was teaching in the nurses'
training school, a message was sent that there was a car at my
front door

By the time I reached home, the car had gone, but there, on
the veranda, was a large twenty-two pound parcel. I felt tears
pricking my eyes. I could not open the parcel alone, so I sent
for the orphanage children.

Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each
knot.. We folded the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly.
Excitement was mounting.. Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes
were focused on the large cardboard box. From the top, I
lifted out brightly colored, knitted jerseys. Eyes sparkled as
I gave them out. Then there were the knitted bandages for the
leprosy patients, and the children looked a little bored. Then
came a box of mixed raisins and sultanas - that would make a
batch of buns for the weekend.

Then, as I put my hand in again,
I felt the.....could it really be? I grasped it and pulled it
out - yes, a brand-new, rubber hot water bottle. I cried. I
had not asked God to send it; I had not truly believed that He
could. Ruth was in the front row of the children. She rushed
forward, crying out, 'If God has sent the bottle, He must have
sent the dolly too!'

Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the
small, beautifully dressed dolly. Her eyes shone! She had
never doubted!

Looking up at me, she asked: 'Can I go over with you and give
this dolly to that little girl, so she'll know that Jesus
really loves her?'

That parcel had been on the way for five whole months. Packed
up by my former Sunday school class, whose leader had heard
and obeyed God's prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to
the equator and one of the girls had put in a dolly for an
African child - five months before, in answer to the believing
prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it 'that afternoon..'

'Before they call, I will answer' (Isaiah 65:24)

Christian Identity Orientation

According to the Obama administration the terrorist problem in America is NOT the radical Muslims like most people think. No, the real problem is those that are “Christian Identity Oriented” because of their anti-government and anti-abortion beliefs. That is what Obama’s TSA nominee is saying. Listen to him in his own words.


Court date Jan 26, 2010----Obama

I ask that you pray for this Judge. I also ask that you and ask God to allow the truth to come into the light. Get as many people as you can to pray for this to be resolved.

A friend sent me this by email but unfortunatly it may be a fabrication according to Truth or Fiction. There ARE however several other cases similar to this in various other places. It is possible that certain political insiders are posting bogus alerts like this one as a dirty trick to discredit the idea that constitutional qualifications must be clearly met by anyone running for office.

Please Pray For Federal Judge Carter.

The email said he set Trial Date for Obama's Eligibility! The expedited trial has been set for Jan. 26, 2010! It might not be true but I for one sure hope that it could be.

Obama is arguing this lawsuit was filed in the wrong court if you can believe that. Obama would prefer a "kangaroo court" instead of a Federal court!

This is A VERY SERIOUS CASE which must be resolved quickly so that the troops know that their Commander in Chief is eligible to hold that position and issue lawful orders to our military in this time of war. OBAMA MUST PROVE HIS ELIGIBILITY to the court! Americans deserve to know the truth about the resident of the White House!

Update October 29, 2009: The Associated press reported on October 29, 2009 that U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter dismissed the case in Santa Ana, California. In a written statement, Carter said that the court cannot "sweep away the votes of over 68 million Americans with the stroke of a pen, " and "that the U.S. Constitution does not give the court jurisdiction to decide the matter." Dr. Taitz is currently in the process of filing appeals. Click for Associated Press Story.
Update December 21, 2009: Dr. Orly Taitz is an attorney who filed a lawsuit in Southern California questioning the authenticity of the birth certificate of President Barack Obama. The lawsuit was filed on the day Obama was sworn into the office of the President. Dr. Taitz told TruthOr Fiction.Com that the latest version eRumor involving Supreme Court Justice Scalia is a fabrication.

Yay! BO Backed off from something....

Thanks for stopping by the TACWASH Blog. My sermon this morning was on "The Stone was rolled Away" and the outline can be seen here.

I received the following a while back from one of my cousins and was flabbergasted. I have to tell you, I am absolutely embarrassed for our country. I wish I could apologise to every one of our troops that are presently serving in the Armed Forces of the United States of America for the present resident of the White House. He does not deserve to be called Commander and Chief in my humble opinion.

Obama's Military Private Insurance Proposal

The following has been checked out through and also, the story appeared in the Washington Times. Chew on this for a while.


Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require veterans to carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the opposition to his proposal.

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country, " Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans."

Please pass this on to every one including every vet and their families whom you know. How in the world did a person with this mindset become our leader?


"Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice?" If he thinks he will ever get another vote from an Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard service member or veteran of a military service he ought to think again. If you have a family member that has served their country please pass this to them. Please pass this to everyone. I'm guessing that other than the 20-25 percent hardcore liberals in the US, everyone else will agree that this is just another example why this is the worst president in American history. Remind everyone over and over how this man thinks.

Remember when Ronald Reagan was President? We still had Bob Hope and Johnny Cash.
Now, we have BO, no hope and no cash....

Last Lord's Day I preached on "Christ's Resurrection" to see the outline click here

Prayer meeting last night was very sparce. Lots of illness. See Prayer Request page on our church website.

From the Desk of:Steve Elliott, Grassfire Nation

They are doing it again...

Reid and Pelosi are holding secret, backroom meetings to put the final touches on ObamaCare. I'm done with government working in the shadows, away from public scrutiny. See below. --Steve

Larry,We've just received word that congressional leadership will not hold formal Conference meetings to resolve the difference between the House and Senate ObamaCare bills. They hatched the plan yesterday during a meeting with Obama's team at the White House. As a result, only a select few will work on the final ObamaCare legislation -- out of public view, free of traditional governing rules, and without a single Republican! And efforts to open these meetings up to the public have been rebuffed.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to a C-SPAN request to televise the reconciliation process by saying, "There has never been a more open process for any legislation," and hinted that keeping the public at bay is the best way to push the legislation through. "We will do whatever is necessary to pass the bill," Pelosi concluded.

With public opposition to ObamaCare continuing to build, Reid and Pelosi are determined to use whatever political shenanigans they can to pass this bill as quickly as possible. Larry, this is utterly despicable. As an American who dearly loves my country, I cannot stand for this kind of arrogant disregard for our rules and regulations. These hearings must be brought to light -- in full view of the public and following the normal House-Senate procedures. And we have to be the ones to demand as much!

+ + Their Goal: Keep Us In The Dark And Rush Passage! Larry, it's no secret that Reid, Pelosi and their ilk are determined to pass ObamaCare in time for the President'sState of the Union Address. That's just a few weeks away. That is why we have to diligently use the time that remains to put the ENTIRE Congress on notice demanding these secret meetings be brought to light.

+ + Fax and Phone Blast to Bring ObamaCare to the Light My staff has identified the key members of Congress that need to hear from you. Each one needs to be told repeatedly that the American people don't like secrets, and won't stand for more murky and sleazy backroom dealings. I believe tens of thousands of faxes demanding transparency will cause many to reconsider their actions. Just give me permission to send faxes on your behalf to your two Washington Senators and Representative and key members of Congress (including the Blue Dog Democrats and those most vulnerable in their re-election efforts) and we can begin putting these lawmakers on notice!

Click here now:

If you prefer to send faxes on your own we've done all the work for you. Simply click here to download targets and letters now:

After scheduling your faxes, pick up your phone and call your lawmakers every day demanding the ObamaCare merger meetings be brought into full public view. Urge them to champion the people by opposing ObamaCare, and finally put them on notice that support of these backroom meetings and the ObamaCare bill may cost them their jobs!
