OBAMA COMPARES HOLOCAUST TO PALESTINIANS' CONDITION IN ISRAEL - I noticed it and so did Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz.. Obama, in a clever use of words read from his teleprompter, compared the murder of over 6 million Jews in Europe by the National Socialists (Nazis), to the current "plight" of Palestinians. The rabbi says Obama has opened the door to persecution of Jews worldwide.Read more
The House Administration Committee last week unanimously approved a resolution by Congressman Dan Lungren (R-CA) directing the Architect of the Capitol to engrave "In God We Trust" and the Pledge of Allegiance inside the Capitol Visitor Center.

TOBACCO - The Senate voted this week 79 to 17 to allow the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to regulate tobacco products. Currently the FDA does not inspect even 1% of the meat we eat. None of the food imported from China is inspected. Recalls of spoiled food are voluntary; no food supplier can be ordered by the FDA to recall food that is contaminated and sickens people. My questions: what does the FDA do with the money they get, and how will they use this new "authority?" How Senators voted
ETHANOL - WASTING GOD'S RESOURCES? - National Geographic's May issue contained a report titled Portrait of the Global Food Crisis. The report concluded that a 25 gallon tank of ethanol uses enough corn or grain to feed one human being for a year. My own research found that 26.1 pounds of corn was needed per gallon of ethanol produced, but I did not include the "negative return," that is, the fuel used to plant and harvest the crop of corn. In addition, Cornell professor David Pimentel found that 27% more energy is used producing a gallon of ethanol than it contains when shipped. Read more

OBAMA AND ISLAMIC REALITY - "And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality." -- Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009.
At almost the same time that Obama delivered this astounding statement, a Christian man was beaten to death for using a cup designated for Muslims. Ishtiaq Masih, ordered tea at a shop in Punjab, Pakistan, during a bus stop. When he paid for the tea the owner saw that he wore a cross, and he and 14 of his employees beat, stabbed and kicked the Christian man. He later died at a local hospital. Ishtiaq had not noticed a sign warning that the shop did not serve non-Muslims. Read more
