Read below about the threat that we face in 2012
Join MRC for free at this link:
Our staff has painstakingly documented and analyzed how the leftist press have been systematically savaging every potential conservative standard bearer who has emerged on the national stage.
We all know how they ruthlessly attacked Sarah Palin.
Donald Trump is no conservative, but the media thought he was and crushed him the minute he looked like a threat to Barack Obama and his socialist agenda.
Then it was Michele Bachmann. Texas Governor Rick Perry. Herman Cain. And of course, Newt Gingrich.
The moment his national approval ratings around the country jumped, the liberal media pounced, looking for any and every piece of dirt they could find on him.
In some cases, members of the liberal media didn’t even try to hide their mission to destroy Newt.
As was detailed in the December 7, 2011 MRC “BiasAlert,” former Newsweek editor Howard Fineman trashed Newt Gingrich as a mad bomber, smearing,
“...Newt's main appeal and his main skill is as a guy who knows exactly where to put the explosive device to blow up the bridge."
An even more outrageous example comes from Noel Sheppard writing in MRC’s newsbusters.org. Noel exposed how Aaron Blake of The Washington Post’s “The Fix,” a political blog, sent out a mass tweet asking for,
“outlandish/incorrect predictions and quotes from Newt Gingrich.”
This same tactic was used by the Post against Sarah Palin in June.
The bottom line is this: The majority of the leftist press are no longer hiding their bias or even pretending to be objective.
Anyone or anything deemed a threat to the media’s socialist agenda has been -- and will continue to be throughout 2012 -- smashed, ridiculed, smeared and demonized by the leftist press.
Think also about how they continue to demonize the Tea Party movement as “right-wing extremists,” “racists,” “hostage-takers,” “terrorists,” and “spoiled teenagers”...
... compared to how they lavished praise on the anti-capitalist anarchists that made up the phony and (contrary to media portrayal) tiny “Occupy Wall Street” rabble.
Most of all, think about how the likes of Chris Matthews, The New York Times and NPR have helped the liberals frame the 2012 election agenda as a battle between “the haves” and “have nots.”
Honestly, in all my years in grassroots activism, I have NEVER seen the media play the “Class Warfare Card” so openly, aggressively and shamefully!
Case in point?
As was also detailed in that December 7 MRC “BiasAlert,” former Associated Press writer Ron Fournier praised Barack Obama's call for higher taxes as,
“...one of his best, a searing and historically poignant account of the greatest challenge of the American experiment: How do we give every citizen, rich or poor, a path to the good life?"
Yes, according to Ron Fournier and most of his liberal media colleagues, the only way to create jobs and expand economic opportunity is to raise taxes, handcuff the free enterprise system and punish hard-working successful Americans.
If you agree, then you are deemed one of the “adults in the room.”
If not, then you are “anti-middle class,” “anti-worker,” “anti-America,” “anti-minority” and a “right-wing, greedy, Tea Party extremist” who hates Barack Obama more than you love your country.
In essence, that is how Chris Matthews, George Stephanopoulos, Christiane Amanpour and the leftist press plan on framing the 2012 elections.
Us against them. Rich against poor. Black against white.
It is despicable –- and the time has truly come to say enough is enough.
I am sure you agree.
In Wednesday's message, I detailed how we plan to answer these distortions and attacks, but I can’t do it without the generous support of conservative Americans.
Stand with us to put the leftist press directly on notice that the American people will not allow them to smear conservatives, distort the facts or elevate the socialist agenda in order to predetermine this year’s election results.
I believe 2012 is going to be a make-or-break year for our nation’s liberty, security and prosperity.
This effort will cost nearly $4 million dollars, and we’re counting on our MRC Action team to contribute $50,000 towards this massive effort.
So please, respond and respond generously today.

P.S. The liberal media’s attacks on Tea Party and conservative leaders, candidates and principles in the coming days, weeks and months ahead are going to be worse than we have EVER seen before in the United States. These attacks will become more and more hateful, dishonest, vicious and relentless as the year goes on. We hold in our hands the tools to counter and neutralize these attacks. DONATE PLEASE

Send this to as many elected officials in D. C. as you can.
Kagan says YOU don't have what it takes
She says, "So What If My Actions Are Lawless... What Are You Gonna Do, Impeach Me?"
Elena Kagan's lawlessness is so clear that even her fellow liberals, like Eric Segall, a liberal law professor at Georgia State University, are no longer denying it.
Segall recently wrote in Slate Magazine:"Doing the right thing is easy when nothing important is at stake. Doing the right thing is much harder when there is a lot to lose. Elena Kagan is a loyal Democrat who owes her Supreme Court appointment to President Barack Obama. She is poised to review the constitutionality of Obama’s health care statute, which, if invalidated, might do serious damage to his re-election campaign as well as the Democratic Party. ... Elena Kagan should recuse herself from hearing challenges to the act."
But Kagan's not interested in doing the right thing. Why should she be? After all, NOT doing the right thing is also easy when no one stands up to you. That must change right now. Our elected leaders must draw a line in the sand. If they don't, the Regime, will only become more brazen in its lawlessness with each passing day.
It's time to force the issue. It's time to put a stop to this lawlessness and start doing the right thing here and now by calling for the immediate impeachment of Elena Kagan.

We had a good season of prayer last night at our mid-week prayer meeting and there was a sweet Spirit in our worship services last Lord's Day. Please visit our Face Book page and listen in to some of the audios available there. CLICK
45 weeks to the Nov 6, 2012 general election
I hope you all are looking forward to a great New Year.
2012 can be our year as we move our state and country back on the right course.
We will win by working together, helping our candidates, identifying like-minded voters and getting out the vote. Happy New Year!
Let me tell you a story I think will anger you.
Owen and Eunice Johns live in Great Britain. They are the kind of people you really want your kids to grow up to be like. They're the kind of people you wish you had for neighbors. They're the kind of people you wish your church was full of.
While they raised four children of their own, the Johns understood that pure and undefiled religion before God is looking after orphans and widows in their need. So they answered the call. They became foster parents to 15 children. Many of their adopted children were older kids-teenagers-who have the most difficult time finding a "forever family."
You may be wondering where is the bad part of this happy story.
Well, recently the Johns were told by the government in Great Britain that they were no longer qualified to be foster parents to children who had no home.
As in most places around the world, Great Britain has a shortage of homes willing to take children who cannot live with their own parents. There are 10,000 children waiting to be placed.
What did they do that disqualified them from being able to provide care to orphans? Were they beating the children in their care? Were children complaining that they were being neglected while living with the Johns? No.
The reason the British government says the Johns can no longer be foster parents is that they are unwilling to tell the children in their care that homosexuality is a morally equivalent lifestyle to heterosexuality. According to the British high court, "traditional Christian views about sexuality are harmful to children."
I'm sure you are as outraged by this as I am. But the point here is not simply to be outraged. We need to understand why the Johns story matters to all of us here in Washington state.
You see, Washington State is seriously considering legislation to redefine marriage. If we allow this legislation to pass in Washington, that will not mean the end for the quest for "sexual freedom."
In truth, the debate over same-sex "marriage" has never really been about marriage. The debate over marriage is simply a small part of a larger effort to eradicate from the public square the idea that there is a difference between homosexual and heterosexual relationships.
That is why the Johns are no longer able to be foster parents. They did not mistreat anyone. They were simply unwilling to surrender their beliefs.
The goal of normalizing homosexuality throughout culture cannot be accomplished if there is not a corresponding marginalization of biblical views about sexuality and restrictions on expressing those ideas. That is why our freedoms are at stake.
We need help making sure that this movement doesn't advance any further in Washington State. Will you help preserve religious freedom in Washington by making your most generous, tax-deductible, year-end gift today? DONATE
The battle will rage hot and heavy in Washington State this next year. Pray for us. If you live in another State, BEWARE! This issue is going to slip up on you too one of these days if it has not already....

Good services today again at TLBC. Had another first time visitor. My Sermon was on "The Prophecy of the Incarnation." Listen Here
You may not have heard about the death of a 98-year-old lady named Irena Sendler.
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive...
She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German). Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of her tool box she carried, and she also carried in the back of her truck a Burlap sack, (for larger kids). She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.
The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids/infants noises. During her time and course of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs and arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it, and reunited the families. Most, of course, had been gassed.
Those kids she helped were placed into foster family homes or adopted. In 2007 Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize....
Al Gore won for doing a slide show on Global Warming.
(Snopes verifies this as true)
What a statement about modern day values in this world.

Send this to your elected officials in Washington D.C.
Please convince me that YOU are not part of the problem.
Our elected officials sit in their elite salons and parlors in Washington and plot and scheme. If you were a fly on the wall, it would come as no great shock to hear one of them actually laugh and proclaim, cigar and drink in hand: "Of course Obama SHOULD be impeached, but let's not upset the apple cart. Life is good for us here in Washington. Let's just keep talking tough, do nothing, and the idiotic citizens in flyover country will put us back into office anyway."
NOW HEAR THIS ... that's NOT going to happen!
Meanwhile, Obama continues to usurp the authority of the legislature and the judiciary, he continues to compromise our national sovereignty. He tries to divide us by race and class. He undermines our Judeo-Christian heritage whenever the opportunity presents itself and he repeatedly violates Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, which requires that he “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
Fire Holder AND his Boss...
It's high time we give Obama what he's been asking for, and yet, our Republican leaders refuse to do what must be done for the good of the country... they refuse to hold this 21st century dictator to account... they refuse to stop the rampant lawlessness of the Obama Regime. They refuse to IMPEACH BARACK OBAMA. It's time for them to know that upsetting the apple cart is REQUIRED and failure to heed that demand will have career destroying consequences.

There comes a point in your life when you realize:
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future..
Give some love to everyone you don't want to lose in 2012,
Including me, if that's what is in your heart.
Good services today at TLBC. SERMON

On Friday's Morning Joe on MSNBC, Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Carter national security advisor ranted, "The United States is becoming rapidly one of the most socially unjust societies in the world." NBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell declared: "I agree with just about everything that Dr. Brzezinski has said..."
Mitchell sets aside Patriots for Freedom in favor of Pundits for Socialism, lamenting, "The disparities between rich and poor in this country. " She noted, "You see the exaggerated forms of it…with the Tea Party, (objecting to Obama-care a couple of years ago) and then, the emergence of the Occupy movement. That's a real movement. There is real passion and anger there."
Socially Unjust? Good grief, Andrea, gag us with a spoon. The USA is one nation that is exceptional in the world for saying her legal citizens, until recently, have constitutionally protected God given rights like LIFE, LIBERTY, and so on. The Godly founders of America designed a constitutionally limited government that we the people were to control. They never intended for the government to control the people and mandate how we may or may not pursue happiness according to divine law. If a citizen chooses to help the poor, that is between him and God and is not a concern of government. Where do people get off now days slandering America like they do? The United States of America has been a more benevolent nation to a lost and dying world than any other country in history. God bless America!
