OBAMA'S PRO-ABORTION HHS PICK - A radical pro-abortionist, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, is being reported as the front-runner as President Barack Obama's pick to head Health And Human Services (HHS). The post is still empty, since Obama's first pick, former Senator Tom Daschle, withdrew because of tax issues. (He failed to pay them.) Daschle was a radical pro-abortionist who promoted socialized medicine. The new pick, Gov. Sebelius, has accepted funding from one abortionist who has been under investigation for deaths at his clinic. In April 2007, the abortionist, Dr. Tiller and his entire staff were hosted by Governor Sebelius at a party held at the governor's mansion. Read More. The anti-life atmosphere at the White House is becoming more and more apparent.
THE POPE AND PELOSI- . Radical leftist Nancy Pelosi is third in line for the Presidency behind Vice President Biden. The Air Force provided her with a large passenger jet for the trip to Europe, and she has Secret Service protection everywhere she goes. As such an important person, when she requested to meet with the Pope this week he had to oblige her out of courtesy, but he took steps to make sure she did not use the visit as a publicity stunt. Pope Benedict allowed no news media and no photographs of the meeting. He did not want pro-abortionist Nancy Pelosi to use the photo to prove she is a good Catholic, something the Pope does not believe. During the meeting the Pope chastised her for her support of killing babies in the womb.
CONGRESS AND THE STIMULUS - The Stimulus will probably not work simply because of the size of our economy. In the last 18 months, between $12 and $20 trillion of wealth has been lost in the United States by the drop in value of equities and property. Some 401K and IRA accounts are now worth about half of what they were in 2007. Bottom line: $800 billion cannot replace $20 trillion. Someone who lost $12,000 in an investment is not going to take a government check for $800, issued to him only if he buys expensive "green" heat pumps for his house or a brand new car . Offering tax cuts of ten cents for every dollar people spend will just not get them to buy what they don't need. The economy will have to sort itself out. All the Stimulus does is increase the debt of our children and grandchildren while adding anti-Christian programs that our government will fund.
DARWIN, SANGER AND HITLER - What do Charles Darwin; his cousin Sir Francis Galton; Margaret Sanger, the founder opf Planned Parenthood; and Adolph Hitler have in common? It is the concept of the survival of the fittest, the Darwinian theory that led to sterilizations in the United States and then in Hitler's Germany. Read this very succinct article on the connection.

DEATH FOR BIBLE TRANSLATION? - No ... but in Afghanistan the death sentence is handed out for translating the Koran. Because of the intervention of President Bush, the sentences of two men were reduced to twenty years in prison. An appeals court this week upheld the 20-year prison sentences for Ahmad Ghaws Zalmai, a former spokesman for the attorney general, and Mushtaq Ahmad, a Muslim cleric who signed a letter endorsing the translation. They will probably die in prison. American and European soldiers are fighting and dying to help enforce these kinds of "moderate" Islamic laws in Afghanistan. Read more
