Congressman James Lankford (R-OK) currently has a 2-1 lead over his Democrat opponent for the U.S. Senate race. Lankford will be replacing Sen. Tom Coburn who is retiring before his term is up. Lankford, who worked as the director of a Christian camp before being elected to the House, is endorsed by GING-PAC.
The following has been reprinted from the Congressional Prayer Caucus. It outlines the latest revisions in Obamacare over the HHS abortion, sterilization, and contraception mandate being forced upon Christian business owners, and Christian institutions. The abortion mandate was never in the original legislation but was added through regulations by the disgraced former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a rabid pro-abortion zealot.
The Obama Administration clearly has no concern about religious liberty or the First Amendment. It only cares about paying off its abortion industry donors by forcing all Americans to subsidize the killing of unborn babies.
Rob Maness, a retired Air Force Colonel, is running against Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu. On Friday, he filed a complaint against Landrieu alleging that she doesn’t have legal residency in Louisiana. Landrieu lives in a cushy mansion in Washington, D.C., and lists her parents’ home in Louisiana as her place of residence.
Huckabee notes that no Middle Eastern countries are sending troops to fight Islamist killers and no Western nations are jumping into the battle either. European nations don’t trust Obama to follow through on his empty threats and they don’t think they should sacrifice the lives of their own sons. If Middle Easterner leaders won’t get out of their palaces to defend their lands, why should we?
“I am concerned that military officials have repeatedly capitulated to demands by organizations that seek to scrub the military of all references of faith,” stated Congressman Forbes. “I am glad that the Navy has indicated the Bibles will be returned. The Constitution prohibits the government from coercing its citizens in their religious beliefs; it does not require that all vestiges of faith be scrubbed from view.”
The video shows Reid making a series of verbal blunders and reveals his constantly confused state of mind. Remember, this is the man who sets Obama’s agenda in the Senate – and the man who has let more than 350 GOP bills pile up on this desk during the past six years. This is the man who slams the House Republicans for being a “do nothing” Congress, but under his leadership in the Senate, almost nothing has passed – not even a federal budget.
I am opposed to the president’s immigration policy because I believe immigrants deserve better. The direct cause of the border crisis that Texas is now forced to address is the president’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In 2011, before this policy was enacted without approval from Congress, roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended at the border; in 2014, with the policy in effect, an estimated 90,000 children will cross the border, many of them smuggled by vicious criminals.
Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system.
Dan Sullivan, has served as a Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves for the past 20 years. He also served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State and as a director on the National Security Council staff under Condoleezza Rice when she was Secretary of State and National Security Advisor.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) rightly slams the Obama Administration on its exchange of a U.S. Army deserter for five Taliban commanders. The Senator also wonders if the Obama Administration is responsible for actually arming Islamic State terrorists in Syria — the terrorists who recently beheaded James Foley and have slaughtered thousands of Christians in Iraq. Senator Cruz has been a vigorous critic of the Obama Administration’s weak response to Islamic terrorism around the world. Obama seems determined to undermine our friends like Israel and to strengthen Islamic terrorism in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Gaza.
