THE ABORTION PRESIDENT - President Barack Obama was to waste no time in rewarding the abortion industry financially for their support during the election. Undoing the "Mexico City Policy" first ordered by President Ronald Reagan he readied an order to divert foreign assistance funds to groups that promote abortion. Read more.
CLINTON JOINS OBAMA - Hillary Clinton officially entered the Obama Administration, becoming Secretary of State. She was confirmed by the Senate in a 94-2 vote with all Republicans except two voting for her. I recommended to several key Republican Senators that they vote for her confirmation to keep the doors of communication open to her. Hillary Clinton could well do more for persecuted Christians in the Middle East than did Condoleezza Rice .... IF .... The huge contributions from rich Muslims to Bill Clinton's foundation do not influence her. Employees of the State Department were so glad to see Rice leave that they lined the inside of the main entrance to cheer Clinton. Watch this incredible video!
JAIL TIME FOR SPEECH - Where is the outrage from President Barack Obama? A member of the Parliament in the Netherlands has been charged and may serve jail time for being critical of Islam. Why is there no action?

CONGRESSMEN HOLD PRO-LIFE VIGIL - The night before the March for Life, conservative congressmen led by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) using a Special Order in the House, held a vigil for those lost to abortion. This floor time, made available by Republican Conference Chair Mike Pence, was used by pro-life Members of Congress to remember the tragedy of Roe v. Wade and discuss the right to life. You can watch the various speakers including Virginia Foxx (R-NC) Bob Latta (R-OH) and Paul Broun (R-GA) at this link.
POODLE ATTACKS FRENCH PRESIDENT - The liberals who pushed Barack Obama into office are internationalists who have as a goal making America more like France, where people are put into jail for criticizing Islam or homosexuals. Liberals hate free speech, but think dogs should have the same rights as people. What could be more French than the former president of France being attacked by his wife's "chronically depressed" French poodle. You have to read this story!
