GING-PAC endorsed Congressman James Lankford (R-OK) won the GOP primary last night to replace Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) who is retiring because of health issues.

Christian Woman Re-arrested After Being Freed From Death Sentence

Meriam Ibrahim and her American husband.

Congressmen Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Frank Wolf (R-VA) were the men who spearheaded the effort in Congress to obtain freedom for Meriam Ibrahim from a Sudanese jail.

Thanks to their work, 38 Congressman sent a letter of concern to Secretary of John Kerry on the plight of Meriam and her two children who were in prison. She faced 100 lashes and then death by hanging for her Christian faith. Interestingly enough, only 7 Democrats signed this letter of concern – showing just how little liberals care about religious persecution overseas. Perhaps if Meriam had been a lesbian Muslim, more Democrats would have signed the letter.

Sen. Cruz: The Humanitarian Crisis Is The Direct Consequence Of President Obama’s Lawlessness

Jun 24th, 2014 | By
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks out on Obama-caused border crisis.

“We are witnessing a humanitarian crisis unfolding that is the direct consequence of President Obama’s lawlessness,” Sen. Cruz said. “We just toured this Air Force facility, where up to 1,200 children are being cared for… but they have come through harrowing circumstances.

“When the President of the United States prevents the Border Patrol from following the law, and enforcing our immigration laws, when the President of the United States announces to the world amnesty for those who have broken the law, the consequence is people respond to that, and the way they respond to that is handing over their children to drug dealers and vicious cartels.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

Each day, innocent people are being trafficked in Florida, across the U.S. and around the world. It’s hard to imagine slavery like this still exists today, but it does. Fortunately, greater public awareness and improved law-enforcement efforts have helped combat the problem, save countless victims, and bring human traffickers to justice. But there is much more work to be done, at home and abroad.

Jun 18th, 2014 | By
Congressman Steve King (R-IA).

“This situation on the border is not intractable. It is caused by the president of the United States of America. President Obama is engaging in the willful destruction of the rule of law.
