'ISLAMIC EMPIRE" IN OBAMA'S HOME TOWN - For years, a global Sunni network with reported ties to Al Quaeda has operated in the shadows in the United States. Now, with Obama in the White House, this network called Hizb ut-Tahrir, will host a conference in his home town of Chicago. The conference on July 19th is entitled "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam," and will be at a Hilton hotel in a suburb of Chicago. Read at Fox News
OBAMA'S SIGNING STATEMENT MADNESS - When a president signs a bill into law he may add a signing statement telling how he intends to implement the law. Obama has made a practice of saying in his signing statements that he intends to ignore provisions in the law. This practice has become so flagrant that even the far left homosexual Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) is now angry. Concerning Obama's signing statement on a war supplemental bill Franks' said, "There's kind of a unilateralism, an undemocratic, unreachable way about these signing statements." Obama had said he would ignore an amendment to the bill that was passed by the House. Members of the House are so outraged that they passed the amendment restricting funds to the World Bank again, this time by a margin of by 429 to 2 with support of both parties. Read more
When this bill becomes law it could be used by federal prosecutors to jail pastors who preach against homosexuality, if a member of their congregation afterward assaults, even verbally, a homosexual.
"IN GOD WE TRUST" NEW LAWSUIT - Last week I reported that Congressman Dan Lungren's (R-CA) resolution to place the National Motto, "In God We Trust" in the new Capitol Visitor Center, passed the House by a wide margin. Within days of passage an atheist group, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, filed a lawsuit to stop the National Motto from being displayed in the new facility. We will watch the lawsuits progress and report further.
CONGRESSMAN SAYS NO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD - Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) has offered an amendment to the appropriations bill that funds the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). The amendment would stop this department's Family Planning funding (Title X) from going to Planned Parenthood of America. Planned Parenthood is the largest recipient of Family Planning money and is also the largest abortion provider in America. Although Planned Parenthood is prohibited from using federal funds for abortions, the funds are used to teach young women that abortion is a normal part of sexual conduct.

MORE RELIGION OF PEACE - In the last seven days, Islamic terrorists have murdered innocent civilians in: Afghanistan, China, Chechnya, Dagistan, France, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ingushetia, Jordan, Pakistan, Somalia, and Thailand. There are probably more, but we have to rely on public lists because Western intelligence agencies, such as the CIA, don't want the public to know the full extent of the murderous rampages on a weekly basis by the "Religion of Peace". See list of this week's murders here.
