NEW THIS WEEK: CHAIRMAN'S REPORT FOR JUNE 29th, 2011 - William J Murray reports on President Obama, Congress and terrorism. This issue includes Obama's drive to make us more dependent on energy from despotic nations and his release of oil from the Strategic Reserve. The genocide of Christians in the Sudan which Obama is also ignoring while assisting Muslims in Egypt is questioned. At the Capitol Peter King's hearings on radical Islam in our prisons and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification bill are investigated. On the international front the continued slaughter of Christians in Nigeria by the Boko Haram is discussed. Also covered is the continued push for sharia law in Egypt by elements of the Muslim Brotherhood.

ABOUT THAT OIL RELEASE - Last week I wrote that President Obama's attempt to manipulate the markets with a release of oil from the Strategic Reserve would do little except frustrate markets. His intention was to bring down the price of oil and "teach speculators a lesson." On the day Obama announced the release of a million barrels of oil a day, oil was trading for $92 a barrel and yes, it quickly fell -- for a few days. Exactly one week after the release of oil from our emergency reserve, oil traded for $95 a barrel. The amount of oil the United States government holds in reserve is not large enough to affect world prices for more than a few days. Final result: The oil in the reserve, which was bought at an average price of about $50 a barrel, must now be replaced with oil costing nearly $100 a barrel.  
RECOGNIZING THE BROTHERHOOD - The sworn objective and the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood is:
"Allah is our objective.
The Prophet is our leader.
Qur'an is our law.
Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
The Obama Administration has begun a relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood stating, "The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing. It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency," a State Department official told Reuters. Negotiate this: The only acceptable final agreement for the Muslim Brotherhood will be the surrender of our Constitution and the establishment of sharia as the law under a Caliphate.

THE REAL WEINER SCANDAL IS AT STATE - Congressman Anthony Weiner's twitter photo scandal exposed an even greater Weiner scandal at the State Department. Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, a close confident and adviser to Hillary Clinton and who holds a top security clearance, has open associations with the Muslim Brotherhood. It is more than likely that the decision to recognize the Muslim Brotherhood as a legitimate organization was orchestrated in her office. Considering her associations, can Huma Abedin be trusted or is she in fact a double agent? Human Events has published a recent article that sheds light on Huma Abedin.

CONGRESSMEN DEMAND PROTECTION FOR RADICALS ATTACKING ISRAEL - Six Democrat Representatives have signed a letter of concern to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking that she protect "Americans" on the "Audacity of Hope" - a ship that is expected to cause violence and political trouble for Israel. The ship - filled with 50 anti-Israel activists - is to leave today. The goal is to break Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. Members of Congress who are concerned for the safety of the pro-Hamas Americans include: Dennis Kucinich, (D-OH) Read more
CONGRESSMEN COMPLAIN TO NBC OVER "UNDER GOD" DELETION - 108 Members of Congress sent a Letter to NBC chastising the network for cutting "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance during its coverage of the U.S. Open this month. NBC aired a patriotic video montage that included children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and twice during the video "under God" was cut out of the Pledge. Congressman Randy Forbes, Co-Chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, and 107 other Members of Congress sent the bipartisan letter to Mr. Stephen Burke, CEO of NBCUniversal, expressing serious concerns.

SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN NEW YORK - When the New York legislature this past week passed a law allowing same sex marriage they claimed to have "protected" religious organizations. This is not true. Religious adoption agencies will be forced to close and private businesses will be forced to participate in same-sex marriages. There will also be a loss of access to professional licenses in counseling. Heritage. Heritage Foundation has produced an excellent analysis. In New York Catholic Bishops issued a statement saying they expect efforts to enact government sanctions against churches.

GROUND ZERO MOSQUE PROMOTER HELPS FUND GAZA FLOTILLA -The main spokesman and promoter for the Ground Zero mosque, Imam Feisal Rauf, is also deeply involved with a leftist and Islamic group funding the Gaza flotilla mentioned above. For details on Rauf's radical international connections, and on the flotilla, especially the American boat "Audacity of Hope," read more at

IRAQ'S VULNERABLE MINORITIES - Recent congressional hearings have entirely missed any discussion of how Al Qaeda and various Shi'a militias are active in Iraq and how, as a result, Iraq's most vulnerable ethno-religious minority communities are at greater risk of being annihilated when the U.S. leaves. Tina Ramirez of the Becket Fund has authored a report on the dangers to Christians and other minorities in Iraq as the United States withdraws.
  CHURCHES INSTALL METAL DETECTORS - Churches in predominantly Muslim northern Nigeria began installing metal detectors because of recent bombings. Churches are searching handbags for explosives as well. There have been several bombings of churches and church affiliated buildings by Boko Haram. On Christmas Eve, more than 80 Christians were killed. Boko Haram translates as "Western education is evil."
KABUL HOTEL ATTACK - At least eight Taliban armed with guns and bombs shot their way into the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan killing several Westerners this week. US troops had to be called to take the hotel back. The attack came just days after the Obama Administration announced it was in talks with the Taliban.

RELEASE ASIA BIBI NOW - Pakistani Christians are demanding the release of Asia Bibi, mother of five, who has been falsely accused of blasphemy and jailed for nearly two years. Blasphemy laws in Pakistan are used to blackmail Christians and steal their homes and land. This is just one more outrage. More at Pakistan Christian Post
