Contrary to the spin the left-wing media is spitting out, the speakers at the Republican National Convention were not mediocre -- and the comparison between the RNC and what we know so far about the Democratic National Conventions could not be more clear.

Prior to the beginning of the Republican convention, there was a prayer event.

What are the Democrats planning to do?  Kick off their convention by allowing Bank of America Stadium to be used for a "jummah" of Islamists.

The Republicans held firm on life, marriage, family and expressing concern about the Islamist threat to America.

The DNC  is celebrating abortion, destroying marriage, waging a war against the family and embracing Islamists at their very doorstep.

Yet when you look at how the Republicans have conducted themselves this week, they were colossally outstanding on their points for the need of America to understand why success is the basis -- along with several other things -- to build the nation into a more perfect union.

They all gave their stories of struggles and setbacks. Coming from very humble beginnings, when you look at these people as governors and presidential candidates and secretaries of state, you couldn't help but walk away with the feeling that we all can be proud to be American.

The better news is that it shows that the wings are packed with young, vibrant, capable and God-fearing potential candidates down the road.

Standing out on all these issues was Governor Romney's position on the issues of life, the defense of marriage, and a very clear stand in favor of school choice.

Romney marvelously convinced the American average citizen that he and his family were also average people who had become successful with hard work, and used their lives to raise five wonderful children and 18 grandchildren.

After watching the RNC I felt that the future of America can be much brighter than the gloom of the last 4 years. 

As noted this week, hard working individuals built this country.  America was NEVER meant to be a socialist “Nanny State” and we must take a stand NOW to preserve our Republic. 
Now is the time for us to first identify voters and then complete an aggressive Get-Out-The-Vote effort.
Just in case you need more motivation, look at what has happened in the last 4 years:
·        Our WA State Budget that was never in balance despite more money each year
·        Gas prices that have doubled
·        Health care costs up over 19%
·        Tuitions up over 25%
·        Income down 4%
·        Personal wealth down 10%
 Paul Ryan noted “We can fix this”
Bottom line:  Please keep your fellow voters informed. 

 47 DAYS (7 weeks) until your WA ballot will be mailed out in the mail

67 DAYS until the Nov 6, 2012 General Election

Reasons for Impeachment

Reasons to impeach Barack Hussein Obama.

According to the investigative unit of Policy Issues Institute,
There is definitive evidence that Obama has:
  • Systematically abused power.
  • Engaged in corruption.
  • Disregarded the U.S. Constitution as the Rule of Law.
  • Acted unilaterally against Congress in enacting law by fiat.

He violated the War Powers Act by initiating Military operations in Libya without Congressional authorization.

He breached our National Security when his administration leaked sensitive classified information that put our armed forces in jeopardy.

He violated the Hatch Act by offering administrative jobs to candidates for dropping out of a federal election.

He used bribery to implement ObamaTAX.  

He violated his oath of office and the Constitution by refusing to enforce immigration law and protect the borders of our sovereign nation.

He has held our American Heritage in contempt and continually bowed to the will of openly avowed enemies of our country and sided with globalists, totalitarian dictators, socialists and communists. 

He violated the Arms Export Control Act and caused the loss of American lives when his administration initiated the “Fast and Furious” program.

He obstinately refuses to be transparent with valid records and documents that may or may not prove his constitutional qualifications for the Executive Office of the United States of America. 

He violated the U.S. Constitution by issuing Executive orders to override Congressional votes and worked outside the system of checks and balances by appointing Czars that do his bidding and report only to him regardless of the rule of law. 

He continued to force ObamTAX upon the governed without their consent even though there was a court ruling against it.

He violated Federal Election Law by taking millions of dollars from foreign donors, refusing to reveal from where most of the money came.

Reason #24

The National Right to Life Victory Fund is presenting 54 Reasons to Defeat Barack Obama to commemorate the 54 million unborn children who have tragically died because of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.  We will continue bringing you this series of reasons to defeat Barack Obama right up until election day. 

Reason #24 to Defeat Barack Obama:
The Most Extreme President Ever on Abortion

America has never had a more pro-abortion President than Barack Obama.  In another time, Obama’s views on late abortions and on eliminating virtually all current protections for unborn children and their mothers would have been considered a scandal.  They would have disqualified him from holding high office.

Commentator Rich Lowry, writing in the journal Politico, said “it is impossible to stake out a position further to the left on this issue, unless, perhaps, you are performing abortions yourself.”

Two things highlight Obama’s extremism:  His strong support for late abortions; and his desire to use federal power to eliminate virtually all pro-life laws in the states.

Late abortions

Throughout his career, Barack Obama has firmly and consistently supported the brutal dismemberment and killing of unborn children in late abortions.  These are children developed enough to feel pain and to live outside the womb.

As an Illinois state senator, Obama voted against a ban on partial-birth abortionHe argued strenuously against a law that would have recognized that an unborn child who survives an abortion has a right to the same care as any other person.

When asked in 2003 about his views on abortion, Obama answered “I’m pro-choice.”  When the reporter followed up with “In all situations, including the late term thing?”, Obama stuck to his guns.  He said “I am pro-choice.  I believe that women make responsible choices . . . and I don’t think that it’s the government’s role to meddle in that choice.”

Eliminating virtually all pro-life laws

Obama promised Planned Parenthood in 2007 that if elected President, the first bill he’d sign would be the Freedom of Choice Act, a law that would eliminate most state pro-life laws.

National Right to Life has been successful in passing laws in several states to ban late abortions when the child is developed enough to feel pain.  An Obama Supreme Court, if he is re-elected, could eliminate those laws, putting thousands more unborn children at risk of what this former abortionist described in his testimony in Congress earlier this year: 

It truly is a scandal that any elected official would defend such brutality.  Every American needs to know this is what their President believes.

Your support for the National Right to Life Victory Fund will help Americans hear the truth.  The media might not tell them the unpopular positions Obama holds, but we will.

Please make a generous donation to the NRL Victory Fund todayPlease share this and subsequent e-mails in this series with your friends so they know the truth, as well.

With your help and support, we can defeat Barack Obama on November 6th and end the threat that Obama’s policies pose to millions of innocent unborn children.  For all the lives your support will save, thank you!

ICE Agents sue to stop illegal amnesty

ICE Agents File Federal Lawsuit Against Janet Napolitano To Stop Illegal DREAM Amnesty
Famed Immigration Litigator Kris Kobach Is Lead Attorney;
NumbersUSA Pledges Full Financial Support For Lawsuit
Please donate today or click
Select Always Allow Images from NumbersUSA to see graphicDear Larry,
NumbersUSA has pledged to fully fund a new lawsuit to block an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens -- all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary.
The ICE (Immigration) agents who filed this lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano could not have done so without the financial backing of NumbersUSA. Yet, we cannot pay for it without your backing. We did not budget for lawsuits, let alone a major federal case taking on the administration. Please make a generous donation.
To fill you in:  Today, in Dallas' federal district court, the president of the ICE agents union, Chris Crane, and other ICE agents filed a lawsuit against Dept. of Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton. They are asking the court to block the amnesty decree process in its tracks. The legal work is being done by Kris Kobach, the celebrated immigration litigator who authored Arizona's S.B. 1070.
Please donate today or click
If you've read Roy Beck's Action Alert earlier today, you already know why the ICE agents feel they must sue to protect themselves. And you know that NumbersUSA is backing the agents because law enforcement officers should not be forced to choose between their oath to uphold the law and keeping their jobs.
The ICE agents' lawsuit is sweeping the media. Fox News Channel has already aired interviews of ICE union president Chris Crane (a plaintiff on the suit) and lead attorney Kris Kobach. Roy Beck just appeared on Fox's "Cavuto" program.
Members of Congress are already issuing statements of support for the agents' lawsuit, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, Judge Louis Gohmert, Judge John Carter, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Sen. David Vitter, and Sen. John Boozman.
I think I can already hear a collective sigh of relief across the nation. Most Americans believe that this DREAM directive is unconstitutional. After all, 24 versions the DREAM Act have been introduced in Congress in the last decade, and Congress has never passed the measure. People have been asking us, "Can't somebody sue?" Well, the ICE agents can, and they did -- with our financial backing of them and with your financial backing of us.
Pursuing this lawsuit will be a tremendous financial drain on NumbersUSA. There is nothing in our budget to cover lawsuits. This is the first one we have ever underwritten in our 16-year history. But the DREAM Directive is illegal, and it directly harms our federal law enforcement officers. It must be stopped. We will help, even if it costs us hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Top 4 Reasons ICE Agents Sued Napolitano and Morton

  1. 1. Direct Violation of the Law.
    The DREAM Directive orders ICE agents not to put illegal entrants into deportation proceedings, which is a direct violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
  2. 2. Unconstitutional Breach.
    The DREAM Directive is an unconstitutional breach of the Executive branch's duty to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed--not systematically set aside.
  3. 3. Abuse of 'Discretion.'
    Instead of giving law enforcement officers the ability to do their jobs, the DREAM Directive ties their hands and prevents the officers from removing illegal aliens.
  4. 4. Unauthorized Benefits to Illegal Aliens.
    The DREAM Directive makes millions of illegal aliens eligible for government benefits they have no legal right to. They will be given work permits and be allowed to stay at least two years. Only Congress can grant these benefits.
Without this lawsuit, about two million illegal aliens will be given work permits, allowing them to compete for jobs with the 23 million Americans who cannot find full-time work. Without the financial support of NumbersUSA, the ICE agents would not be able to file this lawsuit.
Without your financial help, Larry, we will not be able to pay the legal bills.
I'm sure you see the huge stakes that are involved in this suit, why it is so necessary that this DREAM amnesty be stopped. So I'm sure you understand when I say, quite sincerely, that we cannot do this without you.

Former Special Ops officers from four separate branches of the military have joined ranks for one specific purpose – to remove Barack Obama from office.
And now they need your help to do it.

Dear Fellow American,
During World War II, they had a poster up in every defense plant and military base in America.
It didn’t mince words; it told it straight --
“Loose lips sink ships.”
Well, now our nation is saddled with a Commander in Chief who just doesn’t seem to get that message. Or, if he does, he simply doesn’t care.
Let me lay it on the line: Barack Obama’s loose lips are doing worse than sinking ships – they’re putting our entire nation at risk.
And if you and I don’t get this man out of office, he’s going to destroy our military, undermine every ally we have, and arm our enemies to the teeth.
All for his own sorry political purposes.
That’s why I am asking you to join me now in helping the Special Operations Speaks (SOS) PAC launch a nationwide campaign to remove Barack Obama from office. Before it’s too late.  

Demand Congress Hold the Obama 'Leakers' Accountable

Now, I’m going to give it to you straight. Because after 27 years as a Navy SEAL officer – including serving as Commanding Officer of Naval Special Warfare Center, where our proud Navy SEALS train – I don’t know any other way.
And, I think you deserve to know the truth. 
Barack Obama has waged war on America’s military from the day he took office.
He’s already cut our defense budget so deeply that his own Secretary of Defense called it “devastating” to our national security. And the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff warned that because of Obama’s cuts, “we would no longer be a global power.”
Yet, while he is out gutting our military and yanking the guns from our troops’ hands, he is also taking credit for every move our brave soldiers make.
All for political gain – even when it puts their lives at high risk.
Frankly, as a 27-year SEAL officer, that makes me angry. And I have a feeling it does you, too.
And that’s why SOS needs your help now to bring the Obama travesty to an end.
A little over a year ago, when SEAL Team 6 took out Osama bin Laden, Barack Obama couldn’t wait to scurry before the cameras and take full credit.
I’m sure you remember that sorry spectacle. His whole speech was “I” …”I” … “I” … “I” … “I.”
As if he were the one who led the raid. As if he were the one who risked his life. As if he were the one covering his buddies' backs as they fought their way into that compound and back out.
Well, I can assure you that Barack Obama was not there. Those brave soldiers didn’t need him. And they wouldn’t have wanted him.
And there’s something else they wouldn’t have wanted either – Barack Obama blowing their cover the way he did.

There’s only 75 days until the election.

That’s such a short time until America goes to the polls and decides if they are going stay the liberal course or shift to a responsible, future-forward, conservative plan.  We think the choice couldn't be clearer. President Obama's and Harry Reid’s liberal Senate majority simply isn’t working, and the proof is in this report:

DEBT: nearly $16 Trillion

My challenge to you: 75 days to get through to a few friends and let them know what the mainstream media is pushing under the rug. If the Obama and Reid team are good at one thing, it is changing the subject to avoid talking about their record. The reason for this is simple:
They couldn’t win if a record like this becomes widespread knowledge. On the contrary, a new Republican Senate majority will rein in spending, repeal Obamacare, and limit the size of government.
If you do your part, and join us in this 75 day push, we truly believe we can win this election cycle. Consider spreading these numbers to a friend or contributing to the NRSC so we can get our message out!
Thank you for your support. It really means a lot to our prospects this November.

Accountability Directive

Eric Holder and others have BLOOD on their hands.  

Send your Directive --  to Congress, President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney so they know you and I are demanding real action.

Sadly, the recent House vote to hold Eric Holder in contempt was little more than a dog and pony show.

Any criminal investigation would have to be conducted by the Justice Department, and I’ll guarantee you Eric Holder won’t be investigating himself!

That’s why your signed directive is so important. As you’ll see, the directive asks your opinions on these critical next steps . . .
*** FIRST -- Verify that you do believe Eric Holder MUST pay the price for lying under oath about his knowledge in Fast and Furious and for his refusal to hand over subpoenaed documents;
*** SECOND -- Show Obama that refusal to fire Eric Holder as Attorney General could result in severe political pain;
*** THIRD -- Tell Mitt Romney to fully prosecute Eric Holder if elected President -- not simply allow his Justice Department to “move on” and ignore Eric Holder’s illegal actions;
*** FOURTH -- Notify the U.S. House to immediately impeach Attorney General Holder or order the House’s Sergeant at Arms to arrest Holder for “inherent contempt” until he hands over ALL Fast and Furious documents.
Just a few years ago, Nancy Pelosi threatened to use “inherent contempt” during a standoff with the Bush Administration over a much lesser issue!

Please fill out your Accountability Directive and send it IMMEDIATELY.

ACORN tricks are not gone

"Obama’s Administration Is Currently Engaged In... A Massive Nationwide Campaign To Enable Voter Fraud." -David Kupelian,

Obama Vote Fraud      He went on to say: "Obama needs one more voting bloc on his side... the shadow group comprised of non-citizens, illegal aliens, repeat-voters, multiple-state-voters, dead people, felons and others ineligible to vote but who will vote anyway – for Obama."

      And there you have it. While everyone is distracted by the latest poll or the reports of mud-slinging and idiotic gaffs, Team Obama quietly burns the midnight-oil to get out the "non-vote." It's no secret. We know it... you know it... and they know it.

      But the most pathetic and cutting irony of all is that the very folks whose careers actually hang in the balance over Team Obama's massive campaign to enable full-scale voter fraud are asleep at the wheel. They're just going to sit back and let Team Obama get away with it.

      Well... we're not just going to let them get away with it. We refuse to just sit back and let it happen. The integrity of our electoral process is much too important for us to allow it to be abused. We need to make a stink... we need to get something going... and the time to do it is now.

What to do until November

Romney picked Paul Ryan as his running mate, which means:

National debt, deficit and government reform are center stage.

The truth is out - President Obama is the one who cuts Medicare by $716 billion to pay for ObamaCare, which is now on track to be insolvent in 12 years.

Mitt Romney plans to save Medicare with common-sense reform with no cuts.

The Republican ticket believes in and supports the exceptionalism of the American People which makes the Republican Party the Great Opportunity Party - GOP.

Our top 2 primary in WA. is done, PCOs have been elected and our Republican candidates are set for the November General Elections.
                                    Congratulations to all who ran

 Election Day on November 6th, 2012 will be here before you know it.  
Find a way to do something good for our country in the mean time.  Go to work for candidates that are for smaller government, more individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, and traditional moral values that are in tune with the Bible.

enlightened perspective

Description:                                                            []
When Obama stopped in at Master Lock in Milwaukee, Wisconsin last week, he was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and people around him, "It is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as this union is " - - - - pointing to the banner. He then said, "A Union shop since 1848" - - - and then he went on to talk on what that banner stood for and how important it was to display it and show your union support.
The worker, with enlightened perspective, then said to Obama that it was the flag of the State of Wisconsin - - which was founded in 1848, and that the shop was Non-Union.
This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130AM) and not by the major news networks - - - they didn't want to embarrass this "got no clue" President!
Since they didn't do their job of reporting on this presidential visit, the only way for the news to get around is by us - on the Internet. The White House media said he skipped Wisconsin & just went to Minn & Chicago.
Do your job; get the news out, so voters will know what really happened here.  
 If you will take the time to read these. I promise you'll come away with an enlightened perspective. The subjects covered affect us all on a daily basis:  
They're written by Andy Rooney, a man who has the gift of saying so much with so few words.

Angel Flight

A friend sent me the following clip and it touched my heart.  So, I thought I would share it with you.  If you are like me, you might need a hankie handy.  Angel Flight.

Good services last Lord's Day at TLBC.  Audio Sermon clips available HERE.  

We hear a lot about the one percent from the political left now-a-days.  The innuendo is that if we elect a conservative to office, that somehow, he will only work for a wealthy one percent and the rest of us will suffer greatly.  Actually, that is precisely what has been happening with the present administration that is financed by one of the most wealthy men in the world, George Soros.  They say one thing but stab us in the back by doing another..  So, LET US TALK PERCENTAGES...

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.  You know - the private business sector is a real- life business, not a government job .  Here are the percentages.

T. Roosevelt..........38%
Wilson .................52%
Coolidge.............. 48%
Hoover .................42%
F.  Roosevelt.........50%
GH Bush.............. 51%
Clinton     ...............39%
GW Bush..............55%

And the winner is:

Obama ................ 8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That's right!  Only eight  percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?  They know what's best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you and me?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  They've spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers." They should have been in an employment line.

Pass this on we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream  media.

You were warned

Yes and I am as tolerant as God's word will let me be CLICK HERE but I will not be bullied by "Christ-o-phobes" in false religions or the so-called GLBT militants.


 My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, "What's on TV?"
I said, "Dust."
And then the fight started... 

 My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale.
And then the fight started...... 

 My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, "Do you know him?"
"Yes", she sighed,
"He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since." 

I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"
And then the fight started...

  My wife was looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
"I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.'
I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."
And then the fight started........

Sheepdog's Prayer

The Sheepdog’s Prayer
Sheepdogs live to protect the flock

The Knights of Old were Men of Honor
Who used their Might For Right!
Today they’re known as Sheepdogs,
Those who carry on the fight.
I am a tired old Sheepdog,
The guardian of my flock.
I keep the predators at bay
And stand watch around the clock.
Please stop the Sheep from pulling my teeth.
I’ll need them for the fight,
When the hungry Wolves come calling
Some dark and deadly night.
I pray I’ll never need my gun,
But someday if I do,
May my cause be just!
My draw be quick!
And my aim be ever true!
Heaven holds a special place
For those who do the deed,
Defenders of the innocent
In their hour of need.
May the Sheep someday be grateful.
There’s a debt they can not pay
To the Sheepdogs who lay it on the line
Each and every day.
I am proud to be a Sheepdog.
I’ve done my very best.
I’ll stand my watch until my Maker
Calls me home to rest.
But when I meet St. Peter
There’s just one request I’ll make,
“Please let me spend Eternity
Standing guard at Heaven’s Gate”.
Lord, help us bring this ”Age of Sheep”
To a rapid end.
Then fill this land with Sheepdogs,
Men of Honor, once again.
This prayer is dedicated
To those who bravely face,
The dangers all around us,
To make our world a safer place.
To the soldiers, cops and warriors-
Sheepdogs through and through.
Thank you for your service
And your sacrifices too.
Special thanks to Roger for writing and sharing this prayer, and a special thanks to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman for inspiring armed Americans everywhere.
