The Slaughter of The Innocents Matthew 2:13 – 17

“13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” 14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod.

And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

16 When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.

17 Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: 18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.””

Slaughter of the innocents in Nazi Germany

“Of the 69,000 French Jews sent to Auschwitz and other camps, 10,800 were under the age of 18. The children were deported by the Vichy Government from March 27,1942, to Aug. 18,1944 — more than two months after D-Day. Of 2,500 camp survivors, a handful were children.”…NY Times January 25, 1995

Obama and the left will continue to use tragedies such as the Connecticut shootings to try to make the argument for further federal gun control laws. I have one response for that argument.

From The Ulsterman December 17, 2012.

“Barack Obama’s Glaring Hypocrisy On His Concern For America’s Children”
“While speaking on the Conneticut shooting again today in what was a clear push to enact further federal gun control laws (Democrat Congressman Dick Durbin, perhaps Obama’s single most supportive member of Congress, went so far as to suggest the country needs to overhaul the 2nd Amendment itself) Barack Obama said the following:

“Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?
I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer’s no. We’re not doing enough.” -Barack Obama: December 15th, 2012

While there is no doubt of the horrible tragedy that took place in Newtown, there is another statistic of which Barack Obama has strongly defended his entire adult life which dwarfs the tragedy that befell Newtown:
3500 – 4000 children are aborted every day in America. Some of those children are able to live outside the womb of the mother. Even the killing of those children who survive the abortion procedure are to be terminated according to the pro-choice beliefs of Barack Obama. LINK
It is estimated there are over 1000 partial-birth/late term abortions performed in the United States each year.
What of the chances of those children President Obama? Where are your tears and reflection for those thousands of lives snuffed out each and every year? Lives made absent by policies you have long and aggressively supported.
Your words of grief ring hollow and scripted Mr. Obama. When so much of your life’s work has been an advocate of the snuffing out of human life, why should the country believe your attempts to communicate sadness of lost lives now? When you so willingly wrap tragedy inside your own political agenda, how are we to believe anything you say to be sincere?”

“October 11, 2012 – Billy Graham and Franklin Graham met with Gov. Mitt Romney in the evangelist’s Montreat, N.C. home today.”

“Evangelist Billy Graham, 93, issued the following statement after meeting today in his North Carolina home with presidential candidate, Gov. Mitt Romney:

“It was an honor to meet and host Gov. Romney in my home today, especially since I knew his late father former Michigan Gov. George Romney, whom I considered a friend. I have followed Mitt Romney’s career in business, the Olympic Games, as governor of Massachusetts and, of course, as a candidate for president of the United States.

“What impresses me even more than Gov. Romney’s successful career are his values and strong moral convictions. I appreciate his faithful commitment to his impressive family, particularly his wife Ann of 43 years and his five married sons.

“It was a privilege to pray with Gov. Romney—for his family and our country. I will turn 94 the day after the upcoming election, and I believe America is at a crossroads. I hope millions of Americans will join me in praying for our nation and to vote for candidates who will support the biblical definition of marriage, protect the sanctity of life and defend our religious freedoms.””

From the US Conference of Catholic Bishops October 12, 2012.

“USCCB Responds To Inaccurate Statement Of Fact On HHS Mandate Made During Vice Presidential Debate”

“The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued the following statement, October 12. Full text follows:

Last night, the following statement was made during the Vice Presidential debate regarding the decision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to force virtually all employers to include sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion, in the health insurance coverage they provide their employees:

“With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact.”
This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certain “religious employers.” That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to “Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital,” or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served.

HHS has proposed an additional “accommodation” for religious organizations like these, which HHS itself describes as “non-exempt.” That proposal does not even potentially relieve these organizations from the obligation “to pay for contraception” and “to be a vehicle to get contraception.” They will have to serve as a vehicle, because they will still be forced to provide their employees with health coverage, and that coverage will still have to include sterilization, contraception, and abortifacients. They will have to pay for these things, because the premiums that the organizations (and their employees) are required to pay will still be applied, along with other funds, to cover the cost of these drugs and surgeries.

USCCB continues to urge HHS, in the strongest possible terms, actually to eliminate the various infringements on religious freedom imposed by the mandate.

For more details, please see USCCB’s regulatory comments filed on May 15 regarding the proposed “accommodation”: http://www.usccb.org/about/general-counsel/rulemaking/upload/comments-on-advance-notice-of-proposed-rulemaking-on-preventive-services-12-05-15.pdf”;

Why Obama hates Catholic Church Christianity and truth, ACORN funding, Cummunity organizing criticized, Poor exploited, Voter fraud, Gore Clinton connection

Why Obama hates Catholic Church Christianity and truth, ACORN funding, Cummunity organizing criticized, Poor exploited, Voter fraud, Gore Clinton connection

“However, when the CHD funds Alinsky-style, church-based community organizations as in the best interest of the poor and supports organizations which advance other agendas, it divests the poor of their right to an authentic voice. This process tends to treat the poor as exploited units of human capital, rather than as human beings created in the dignity of God’s image.”…1997 report to Catholic Bishops
“the organization has come under intense scrutiny because of its voter registration practices. In several states voter registration forms have been found to include nonexistent or dead people. Some registrants have told elections officials they completed multiple cards at the urging of ACORN canvassers who claimed they would be fired if they did not meet a daily quota for signing up new voters.”…Catholic News Service. Oct. 16, 2008

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32

One of the reasons that Obama hates the Catholic Church, Christianity and the truth, aside from the fact that there is no proof he is Christian, and he has been most influenced by Muslims and radicals, is the criticism of his associates by the Catholic Church and cutting off of funding to ACORN. This has been reported numerous times at Citizen Wells, but bears repeating in light of Obama’s actions against the Catholic Church and Christianity in general.

From Citizen Wells October 8, 2008. The report quoted below was published on September 26, 1997.

“A Commentary on the Campaign for Human Development
Prepared for the Catholic Bishops of the United States
Prepared by the Wanderer Forum Foundation

I. Introduction: This commentary is submitted to the Catholic Bishops of the United States with respect to their possible consideration of changes in the
organization, funding, and structure of the Campaign for Human Development (CHD). It is essential to note, however, the limited purpose and scope of this
commentary:”

“COMMUNITY ORGANIZING: During the funding period of 1992-1995, CHD gave significant grants to community organizing efforts that implement many of the organizational techniques recommended by Saul Alinsky. Many community organizations patterned after Alinsky’s recommendations recruit their membership either entirely or partially by institution. Included among this class of grantees are four national organizations: the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), Gamaliel, Pacific Institute for Community Organizing (PICO), and Direct Action and Research Training Center (DART). The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) which is also patterned on Alinsky’s organizational recommendations, recruits individual members. These five national organizations alone account for approximately 33% of current CHD expenditures annually. For purposes of illustration, it will be useful to note here some aspects of the operation of ACORN and the IAF.”

“During the 1990s, ACORN has been openly active in Congressional lobbying. Its leadership operates, “…from inside positions of power. ACORN’s work on the
savings and loan bailout provided effective means of developing and applying power…ACORN members won appointment to the Resolution Trust Corporation to help determine the management of the billions of dollars of assets the government seized.”

“To be eligible to receive CHD funds, a program must be run by the poor, benefit the poor, and change social structures that harm the poor.” However, in
light of the politically oriented thrust of ACORN’s activities, it is fair to ask whether the CHD subsidies to ACORN are advisable and commensurate with the
purposes of CHD.”

“This commentary does not oppose CHD funding of genuine, grassroots community organizations, run and supported by individual members of a parish or diocese.
There is potential value and virtue in the collective voice. However, when the CHD funds Alinsky-style, church-based community organizations as in the best
interest of the poor and supports organizations which advance other agendas, it divests the poor of their right to an authentic voice. This process tends to
treat the poor as exploited units of human capital, rather than as human beings created in the dignity of God’s image.”

“Nor is there any basis for the CHD to imply by its actions that there are no alternative organizations that it can fund to promote valuable institutional
change, uninfluenced by a politicized agenda. There is no necessity for CHD funds to go to organizations which contribute to or participate in any way in the
political support of abortion. There is no necessity for CHD to fund Alinsky-style, church-based community organizations. There are alternative, self-
determined organizations of the poor, which are supportive of life. Those alternative, grassroots community organizations do not merely serve their
constituency but rather they are their constituency. They do not use community organizing to further an additional agenda.

It would be reasonable for the bishops to consider:

The immediate cessation of all CHD funding to Alinsky-style, church-based community organizations.”

From Catholic News Service October 16, 2008.

“The Catholic Campaign for Human Development suspended funding a nationwide community organizing group after it was disclosed June 2 that
nearly $1 million had been embezzled.

Funding was suspended for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, popularly known as ACORN, because of the financial irregularities, said Ralph McCloud, executive director of CCHD, the U.S. bishops’ domestic anti-poverty and social justice program.

“We’re not funding them at any level,” McCloud told Catholic News Service Oct. 15.

The suspension covers all 40 ACORN affiliates nationwide that had been approved for $1.13 million in grants for the funding cycle that started July 1, 2008.

McCloud said the suspension came soon after his office learned that ACORN disclosed that Dale Rathke, the brother of ACORN founder Wade Rathke, had embezzled nearly $1 million from the organization and its affiliates in 1999 and 2000. Dale Rathke stepped down from his position with the organization in June when the matter became public; no charges were filed against him. Wade Rathke stepped down as the group’s lead organizer at the same time but remains chief
organizer for ACORN International LLC.

CCHD has hired specialists in forensic accounting to investigate whether any of its grant funding has been misappropriated, McCloud added.

Since revealing its financial troubles, the organization has come under intense scrutiny because of its voter registration practices. In several states voter
registration forms have been found to include nonexistent or dead people. Some registrants have told elections officials they completed multiple cards at the
urging of ACORN canvassers who claimed they would be fired if they did not meet a daily quota for signing up new voters.

McCloud released information showing that CCHD funded more than 320 ACORN projects with grants totaling more than $7.3 million during the last 10 years. He said the community organization also had received funds since early in CCHD’s history.

CCHD’s Web site reveals the campaign gave about $1.11 million to 40 ACORN affiliates in 2007 and $1.17 million to 45 affiliates in 2006.

Over the years, some of the funds undoubtedly were used for voter registration drives, McCloud said.

“It probably was,” he told CNS. “But by the same token, we didn’t find any voter registration irregularities, the allegations we are finding now.”

McCloud also said that CCHD guidelines require that organizations in line for funding “go through a great deal of scrutiny.”

Prior to the awarding of grants, applications from local organizations are vetted at the diocesan level by a funding committee, endorsed by the local bishop,
and then scrutinized by the national CCHD staff and a committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, McCloud explained.

“The whole idea is making sure that the efforts of the groups we fund are working in nonpartisan efforts and focusing on the kind of work that we would like for them to do,” McCloud said.

The organization has not returned several calls from CNS seeking comment about the suspension of funding.

However, ACORN officials are defending the organization’s voter registration practices. During an Oct. 14 press conference, spokesman Patrick Whelan
acknowledged that some of the organizations 13,000 canvassers submitted duplicate or false registrations, but said they represented a tiny fraction of the
1.3 million new voters signed up for the Nov. 4 election. He said the organization itself discovered many of the problem registrations.

Traditionally drawn to causes usually backed by Democrats, the 38-year-old organization has conducted organizing campaigns in low- and moderate-income
communities on issues such as unemployment, affordable housing, predatory lending, health care, minimum wage and living wage, and immigration. ACORN also has conducted voter registration drives throughout its history by hiring canvassers to go door to door and to visit public sites where people gather.

The organization has more than 1,200 chapters in 110 cities, according to its Web site.”

I spoke to Bettina Viviano several days ago. If you are not aware of her involvement in revealing Obama camp voter fraud, read the following from Citizen Wells March 21, 2012.

I asked Bettina if she was aware of the report to the Catholic Bishops and the cutting of funding to ACORN by the Catholic Church. She was not. Bettina Viviano, et al, also from that report:

“3. The CHD-funded IAF has shown partisanship in its Get-Out -the-Vote Drives.

a. In 1996, the CHD-funded California IAF local, VOICE (Valley Organized in Community Efforts), set its membership to work in a get-out-the-vote drive. The
drive was called Active Citizenship Campaign. As part of its effort in February 1996, California IAF organizer, Father Miguel Vega, S.V.D., wrote to Vice
President Al Gore: “Through the creation of a permanent precinct organization, 5000 precinct captains will turn out 966,000 voters for the November 1996
elections.”

Vega continued, “Essential to the permanent precinct organization is the naturalization of 180,000 New Americans.” The IAF proposal presented to Gore stated that its Active Citizenship Campaign was “willing to work with the INS [Immigration and Naturalization Service] to increase the efficiency” of the
naturalization process. “Failure to deliver on promises made by the INS,” wrote Father Vega, “could create the impression that the Clinton administration is
anti-Latino.”

Gore met with Father Vega and the IAF on March 8. The Talking Points Gore provided the IAF at this meeting state: “As you may know, I have been working on reinventing the federal government for the past three years. Because of that assignment the President has asked me to take a look at INS’s naturalization
process and see if, using some of the techniques we have used to reform other government agencies, we can help take care of that backlog.”

The naturalization process was speeded up as requested. As an apparent result, the 1996 elections experienced the largest Latino turnout in California
history.

Arguably, however, one other result was the election of Loretta Sanchez, an IAF-backed candidate favorable to legalized abortion, in an election that gave
rise to serious allegations of voter fraud. The Wall Street Journal reported, “…Orange County District Attorney Michael Capizzi has determined that one
immigrant rights group alone registered 590 non-citizens in the county and 547 of them voted…California’s Secretary of State has also found at least 300
illegal voters in the Dornan race…[I]ndependent observers have agreed that irregularities in both California and Louisiana are worth a closer look.””

http://www.wandererforum.org/publications/focus025.html

Many are not aware of the above efforts by Catholics and the Catholic Church. If more Christians had spoken out in Nazi Germany, perhaps the catastrophe could have been avoided or minimized.

Obama Pelosi Reid removal from office, Phase 4, Let the lawsuits begin, Let the state challenges begin, Remove the asses in November 2010, Let not your heart be troubled

Obama Pelosi Reid removal from office, Phase 4, Let the lawsuits begin

“Let not your heart be troubled”…John 14:1

Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have referred to this tax and control bill as historic. Indeed it is. It marks the most corrupt congress and white house administration in US history. It also will define the Obama administration and this Democrat controlled congress.
In phase 1, informed Americans tried to prevent an illegal takeover of the US government by the Obama camp.
In phase 2, more and more Americans learned the truth about Obama. This includes Democrats, Independents and even a few in the MSM, perhaps now even including Jack Cafferty.
We are in the midst of phase 3, the corrupt attempts to pass this tax and control Health Care Bill against the will of the governed. At best, this will allegedly begin covering some Americans in approx. 4 years after taxing us to death and ruining the economy even more.
Phase 4 begins tomorrow after the probable chicanery passes tonight. Do not worry. This will become a rallying cry. Like the shot heard round the world in the American Revolution. This will consist of numerous court and state challenges as well as futher preparation to vote the asses out in November. Remember, these fools have helped us in a way. They have placed a large red target on their backs.
Phase 5 will of course be the removal of these arrogant, corrupt politicians. That will include the removal of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi being removed as Speaker of the House and either impeachment proceedings against Obama or minimally his political demise by 2012.

MA Senate debate, Monday, January 18, 2010, Scott Brown, Martha Coakley, Joseph L. Kennedy, Youtube video, Final debate, Turnout Critical in Tight Massachusetts Senate Race

****  UPDATES BELOW  ****

This article will be updated during the day today.

The final debate of the MA Senate race will take place tonight, January 18, 2010 .

From Fox News.

“Turnout Critical in Tight Massachusetts Senate Race”

“Both sides say turnout will be key in a race that could decide the fate of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Obama campaigned Sunday for Democrat Martha Coakley.”

“BOSTON – Democrats and Republicans ramped up election eve get-out-the-vote efforts in their close battle for a Massachusetts Senate seat that could decide the fate of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul and the rest of his agenda at the opening of the 2010 midterm campaign season.

Obama needs newly embattled Martha Coakley to win Tuesday’s special election for the late Edward Kennedy’s Senate seat and deny Republicans the ability to block his initiatives with a 41st filibuster-sustaining GOP vote.

The president campaigned here Sunday with Coakley, who has seen the double-digit lead she had two weeks ago evaporate under a strong challenge by Republican state Sen. Scott Brown.

Voter turnout is normally low in special elections, but even in staunchly Democratic Massachusetts, apprehension about Obama’s health care overhaul is fueling a huge wave of populist support for Brown.

Polls show that independents, who make up 51 percent of the state’s electorate, have responded enthusiastically to Brown. His campaign is targeting them as well Republicans, who are outnumbered by Democrats 3-to-1 in the Bay State.”

“Voter Enthusiasm a Problem for Coakley, Polls Suggest”

“A new poll out of Public Policy Polling on Monday underscored the depth of Coakley’s challenge. 

The poll showed Brown leading 51-46 overall, 64-32 among independents and winning 20 percent of the vote from those who backed Obama in 2008. On the flip side, the survey showed Coakley pulling just 4 percent of the vote from those who backed John McCain, in the 2008 presidential race. 

And the poll reflected the enthusiasm gap from which Coakley suffers. Eighty percent of Brown supporters said they were “very excited” about Tuesday’s election, while only 60 percent of Coakley supporters felt the same way.”

” A new poll released Monday afternoon indicates that Republican Scott Brown has a 7-point edge over Democrat Martha Coakley in Tuesday’s special election in Massachusetts for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat.

According to an American Research Group survey, 52 percent of likely voters back Brown, a state senator, with 45 percent supporting Coakley, the state’s attorney general. Meanwhile, 2 percent back Joseph Kennedy, a third party candidate who is not related to the late senator. The 7-point advantage for Brown is just within the poll’s sampling error.”

Scott Brown campaigns in Middleboro MA, January 16, 2010, MA Senate race, True Republican, Videos, Youtube video, Everett Square, Spoke from the back of a pickup truck, You deserve better, Taxes, Creating jobs

From Everett News, January 17, 2010.

“Scott Brown campaigns in Middleboro on Saturday night
More than 500 supporters attend event”

“MIDDLEBORO — Scott Brown pulled into Everett Square on Saturday night and spoke from the back of a pickup truck to more than 500 supporters.

The crowd filled the Flat Iron Cafe and even spilled out into the square, filling the parking lot of the Rockland Trust Bank.

Brown spoke briefly to the crowd and was greeted with cheers and chants as he outlined his platform and said.

“You deserve better. … When I go to Washington, I will do my very best to stop backroom deals. We’ve lost our way,” he told the crowd.

Brown spent more time on the ground shaking hands with the crowd, which was a cross section of steel workers, farmers, doctors and the unemployed.

Many, like David Ng of Pembroke, had already voted by absentee ballot. Ng said his vote was against “everything the Democrats try to ram down our throats.””

“Brown’s stand on taxes and creating jobs was a high priority for Voneow. Bill is out of work, and the couple is trying to make ends meet on one paycheck.

“He stands for working like a true Republican instead of feeding special interests. He’s the guy I think can help us,” said Bill.”

“Her husband, Norman, 88, a former member of the Planning Board had already voted for Brown by absentee ballot. Their son, Douglas, said he supports Brown because “he’ll take the reigns of government back from socialist concerns.”

Many in the crowd said the election has national ramifications, calling it a vote that will be heard around the world.”
