THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION: MOBILIZING FOR WAR on the PREBORN
Foreshadowing the immanent escalation of America's war on her
unborn under Barack Obama, the president-elect continues to place
prominent abortion activists in key positions in his new administration.
This may come as a shock to those foolish people who have decided
to take a wait-and-see attitude, to just "wait and see" what Obama
might do about abortion when the issue just happens to come up at
some point in the weeks and months ahead. Sorry, friends! Your
waiting game is over. The president-elect is already making abortion
not just a centerpiece of his administration but its very heart and soul.
Last weekend, Obama selected Ellen Moran to be the White House
Moran currently speaks for the abortion establishment as the
executive director of Emily's List, a prominent political action
committee that exists solely to elect female, pro-abortion Democrats.
Emily's List recruits and trains pro-abortion women and then spends
millions of dollars a year getting them elected.
Moran's association with Emily's List began 15 years ago, in 1993.
Obama also appointed Dawn Johnsen as a member of his
Department of Justice Review Team. Johnsen was the Legal Director
for NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) from 1988-1993.
The DOJ Review Team is charged with "assur[ing] continuity in the
faithful execution of the laws and in the conduct of the affairs of the
Johnsen also worked for the American Civil Liberties Union
Reproductive Freedom Project.
She has published a number of works supporting legal abortion and
decrying even modest abortion regulations. In a 2006 article
published in Slate Magazine, Johnsen wrote, "The notion of legal
restrictions as some kind of reasonable "compromise" -- perhaps to
help make abortion "safe, legal and rare" -- thus proves nonsensical.

Last Monday, Obama announced that Melody C. Barnes had been
chosen as the head of the White House Domestic Policy Council,
making her, as the Washington Post put it, "the president's top
adviser on a wide range of issues."
Barnes served on the boards of Emily's List and the Planned
Parenthood [Political] Action Fund.
Barnes served as chief counsel to Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) on
the Senate Judiciary Committee. As Kennedy's chief counsel, she
was responsible for refining Kennedy's pro-abortion policies and
implementing his pro-abortion agenda.
Also a past-executive vice president of the Center for American
Progress (CAP), Barnes helped launch its "Initiative on Faith and
Public Policy," also known, in the words of National Right to
Life News Editor Dave Andrusko, "as the ceaseless campaign to dupe
people of faith into believing that it's perfectly acceptable to vote for
The president and chief executive officer of CAP, John Podesta, is
currently in charge of managing Obama's transition team.
Other key anti-life Obama appointments include:
Chief of Staff - Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois Emmanuel has
compile a 100% pro-abortion record, voting for partial-birth abortion,
for taxpayer funding, and against parental involvement.
Secretary of Health and Human Services - Former Senate Majority
Leader Tom Daschle Although Daschle did manage to compile a
14.5% pro-life voting record from 1997 to 2004, he voted to endorse
Roe v. Wade and he voted for a counterfeit partial-birth abortion in an
effort to derail the real thing and supported taxpayer funding of
Head of Obama's "Council on Bioethics Review Team" - Jonathan A.
Moreno professor of "medical ethics" at the University of
Pennsylvania, Moreno is a strong advocate of human embryo-killing
research. In a July 2008 Pew Forum interview Moreno said, "The
important questions now are how much of a leadership role will the
next administration take and how efficiently will the government be
able to push this very promising field of [embryonic stem cell]
scientific research forward?"
Secretary of State - Hillary. Enough said.
Your comments are very welcome! Also, I could use a few more blog 'followers.'
Watch out for all the drunk drivers on the Holiday roads. Woo Woo!
In our case, both of us are disabled to the point where it's hard to do the normal things like cleaning the house, walking any distance, taking care of the garden, chores, but we still do it. I honestly am very embarrassed to say that I depend on my wife to tie my shoe laces and a few other things for me and I would be up a creek if she were not here with me. One hand washes the other and most couples I know help each other. I spoil her with money and gifts-- but all I want from her is respect, love and kindness. Medication helps a little to take the edge off the pain, but then we don't want to be "space cadets" and loopy..lol. We are thankful that we have good Insurance from Chrysler and the VA [but who knows what will come down the pike]. Our Gov't has traditionally screwed the Vet's and given the free lunches to the illegal aliens and some cheating welfare recipients. I earned what I have-- I didn't STEAL it! How many folks would work on a moving assembly line for over 30 years, and then retired with a bad back and carpal tunnel in the arms and wrists, hypertension and damaged lungs from the indoor pollution from the fine mists of oils and coolants squirting our of the giant machines? And you can bet your boots that when the Company has hard times from Mismanagement, they insist on cutting our benefits no matter what the contract says!! They recently did that to us retirees last year! Still, I feel very blessed and fortunate and praise the Lord. My mom pays hundreds of dollars every month on meds,and calls me 'lucky.' Not! -- illegal aliens sucking up OUR resources are the "lucky" ones. I heard that in places like the Bahamas--there is no welfare!
So, back to 'normal' life and back to reality today after Turkey Day. And if all possible, I want to stay home and off the streets as all the crazed shoppers spend money with their plastic cards.. Woo Hoo! See what I mean, below:
I have bought some nice things for my wife, but told her that we REALLY have everything we need and want right now. I asked her repeatedly NOT to buy me anything. We are jubilant and thankful that God sent His only begotten Son to earth, but we personally don't need or want to make a big 'to-do' about the commercial Christmas thingy, please. Anyway you cut it, MOST of Americans support abortion, the Gay agenda and other extreme Left things-- or they would NOT have elected Obama. Go figure -- how can Americans say they love and celebrate Christ's birth-- and still support and vote for people and bad laws that offend God Almighty?? Hello! God is not one to be mocked! Now we shall all reap the whirl winds and I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop...Ha!
Being a Baptist [but I confess that I don't agree with EVERYTHING they teach and enforce...], I was interested in reading another Blogger's documented claim about a Texas town having forced religious views and rules in a PUBLIC school a few years ago, and thugs actually burning his house because he voiced his opinion!
I feel bad about this tragedy and will post more about it latter. Remember, "absolute power corrupts- absolutely." No one should be above the Law, yet we all know that there exits a double standard in America.

From my friend, Sheila and your husband:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -----Ronald Reagan
