Quote of the Day

"Our government’s refusal to allow the development of our oil resources has left us on the verge of $5 per gallon gasoline, with fuel shortages looming in the future. This will have a profound negative effect on our economy, because growth requires movement. The level of wealth we are accustomed to depends powerfully upon the ability to move goods and individuals over long distances at low cost."

Most Confused Democrat of the Day

“I mean, what does the wife do then, put on some red sheets on the bed and say ‘You know we can get rid of the blue sheets, but keep the white one over there because we might need that one for the midnight meeting.’”

Robert Brown the highest ranking Democrat in Georgia, leader of the Democrats in the State Senate when asked about a series of party switchers from Democrats to Republicans.

The hapless Mr. Brown was trying to smear Republicans but he forgot that the Klan was run by... (drumroll, please) DEMOCRATS!

Quote of the Day

"There is nothing inevitable about same-sex "marriage." The public continues to oppose it. Our exit poll on November 2nd found that by a whopping 18-point margin voters were more likely to oppose a candidate who supported same-sex “marriage.” Unfortunately, there are some potential Republican presidential contenders who still think we need a "truce" on values issues. But how do you have a truce when the cultural radicals have declared war on Judeo-Christian values?

The candidate who recognizes that the defense of traditional marriage is a serious issue that voters genuinely care about is the candidate who will go all the way, capturing the support of conservative voters and the GOP presidential nomination."

Quotes of the Day

"Under the new policy, outlined in a Medicare regulation, the government will pay doctors who advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment."


"The Internet has taken our basic Freedom of Assembly right and adapted itself beautifully to the 21stcentury – a sensational transition our Founding Fathers would have been proud of. To believers in freedom, the Internet is a Godsend – the modern-day equivalent of the printing press.
Leftists Hate the Internet Because It Has Exposed Them
And to control freaks, the uncontrolled flow of information between private citizens and the potential accountability that a more-developed Internet could make possible is a total nightmare."

"...the entire U.S. Constitution will be read aloud on the floor of the House of Representatives on his first full legislative day as Speaker of the House on January 6.

The Constitution read aloud in Congress? There’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is John Boehner."

Quotes of the Day

"It is one of the things that keeps me up at night. You didn't worry about this even two years ago -- about individuals, about Americans, to the extent that we now do. And that is of great concern. The threat has changed from simply worrying about foreigners coming here, to worrying about people in the United States -- American citizens -- raised here, born here, and who for whatever reason, have decided that they are going to become radicalized and take up arms against the nation in which they were born."

Attorney General Eric Holder


"Whether it's regulating the Internet or pursuing a cap and trade regime via regulation, House Republicans must make reining in the out-of-control bureaucracy a top priority in 2011. The ultimate solution is to reduce the size and scope of government, and it should begin with significant regulatory reform."

A Prayer for God's Blessing of Love and Mercy

Merry Christmas everyone!

Before I say the prayer, may I share some of my frustrations that ALWAYS come about this time of year?

Shortly after Thanksgiving, I am reminded that we Christians are being marginalized daily by the merchants, our Government, not to mention numerous other secular institutions The most frustrating part of all, is to see fellow Christians unknowingly participate in this nonsense So please don't send me a Happy Holidays Card!

Christmas is not about Black Friday or how much more Chinese junk stores can sell.

Christmas is about celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ Please check out Matthew 1:23 Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel' (which means. God with us). lf some folks are offended by that then so be it.

Let us pray

Our Father in heaven, we Americans have much to be thankful for. We are thankful that the Lord has granted us another year with a warm house, plentiful food and good health

As the history of our nation continues to unfold we pray that God will continue to bless us with His Love and Mercy.

As citizens we must continue to defend God's will as given to us in the Holy Bible.

We pray for those who have never heard the inner voice of God's word. We pray for those who suffer from addictions give them strength and hope Dear God.

We pray for all members of our Armed Forces who continue to serve with Courage, Honor and Dignity.

Bless this group of Madison citizens who continue to serve unselfishly in their community and nation.

This We Pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

Quote of the Day

In recent years, Americans have learned to live with a new reality: Al Qaeda will try to attack us and politically correct Muslim sympathizers in the U.S. will help them. For example, late yesterday news broke that top Iraqi officials have alerted U.S. and European authorities that Al Qaeda plans to carry out suicide attacks during the Christmas season. The information was obtained from a massive security sweep that captured 73 suspected terrorists in the past two weeks.

"Holiday attacks by Al Qaeda are not new. You no doubt recall the "underwear bomber" who tried to blow up an airliner last Christmas. Already this year, the FBI thwarted an attempt to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon. Not long after that, the FBI busted another jihadi wanna-be who tried to bomb a military recruiting station in Maryland.

There is no doubt that evil men, motivated by their radical Islamic ideology, are trying to murder and maim as many Americans as they can. Now some American Muslim advocacy groups are accusing the FBI of entrapment.

Unbelievably, Attorney General Eric Holder recently met with one of these groups to entertain their "grievances." While Holder held his ground this time, the meeting never should have happened. It was an insult to the professionalism of the men and women charged with defending us.

But that the meeting even took place is a testament to the growing rot of political correctness at the highest levels of government. If it is not stopped, the consequences will be deadly."

"The American people spoke clearly this November, they are tired of Washington’s spendthrift ways and the lack of self-control with the tax-payers’ hard-earned money. Congress should pass a short term continuing resolution through March until the new Congress can be sworn in so they can address this mess in a responsible manner."

Virginia Healthcare Lawsuit Ruling a Victory for the Rights and Prerogatives of Virginians

“Neither the Supreme Court nor any federal court of appeals has extended Commerce Clause powers to compel an individual to involuntarily enter a stream of commerce by purchasing a commodity in the private market. In doing so, enactment of the Minimum Essential Coverage Provision exceeds the Commerce Clause powers vested in Congress under Article I.”

Federal Judge Henry Hudson


“This case is a reminder that Sen. Jim Webb ignored the views and values of the people of Virginia with his many votes, including the one for Senate passage last Christmas eve, for this unfair, harmful, unconstitutional federal government takeover of health care and its odious mandates.

“This decision is a victory for the rights and prerogatives of Virginians and potentially people throughout our United States.

“I heartily commend Judge Hudson for his sound, Constitutionally-based decision and also thank Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli for defending liberty against federal usurpation and dictates.”

Quote of the Day

"Based on the Pentagon's best guess, there are probably less than 30,000 homosexuals in the military. Compare that to the 15.1 million Americans on unemployment and it might give you a glimpse into the Left's deranged priorities. I'm sure it's comforting to the people looking for work that Washington is too busy to help because they're planning a coming out party for a sliver of the military who already have jobs -- and knew the policy when they signed up!"

Countering the Left's Smear and Silence Campaign

This morning, I had the opportunity to appear on "Fox and Friends" to respond to the Left's ongoing campaign to smear and silence FRC and other pro-family organizations. As I reported yesterday, the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has called on national TV networks to censor us because of our support for man-woman marriage. Please watch the interview below, and then email to thank "Fox and Friends" for allowing me to respond to SPLC's intimidation tactics.

Free Brian Aitken

from the National Association for Gun Rights

"Despite not violating ANY of New Jersey’s outrageous firearms laws, Brian was arrested for the “unlawful” possession of a handgun.

Throughout his trial, the anti-gun statists in the New Jersey legal system routinely blocked Brian’s attorney from presenting evidence of Brian’s innocence. New Jersey law specifically states that the transportation of handguns between residences is legal.

Despite the incontrovertible evidence that Brian was transporting his legally purchased handguns from his mother’s home to his new apartment, the anti-gun Judge refused to permit Brian’s legal team from informing the jury of this portion of state law.

Jurors even asked the judge three times if state law contained exemptions for the transportation of handguns from one residence to another, but the anti-gun crusader disguised as a judge refused to answer.

Additionally, federal law allows for the transportation of firearms between residences without fear of state prosecution; however, the same anti-gun judge refused to take federal law into consideration in Brian’s case.

Brian Aitken was convicted of felony possession of a handgun and faces up to seven years in jail.

Think you’re safe 'cause you live in a “pro-gun” state? Think again.

Expect to hear statists across the country calling for increased enforcement of “existing” gun law.

That’s code for twisting current law to maliciously prosecute gun owners, and it’s nothing new: the institutional gun lobby has been promoting this for more than a decade.

State and local governments will respond to this anti-gun cattle call and will race to create new ways to infringe upon your rights through bureaucratic fiat and “rule” changes.

That’s exactly what happened in New Jersey and an innocent man was convicted simply because he owned guns

Quote of the Day

"For two years Obama argued that the Bush tax cuts were the source of all evil. He claimed that they did nothing for the economy. He argued that lower taxes somehow had caused the economic meltdown. Until one month ago he peppered every speech with the canard that Bush had “driven the car into a ditch” with his tax cuts and now he claimed the GOP wanted to do it again. Now, after all the “huffing and puffing,” class warfare, vitriol and rhetoric, Obama said, in effect, “Never mind.” I agree with Rush Limbaugh, who pointed out today that this is the first real defeat that Obama has suffered in the last two years."

"All you have to do these days is declare that you are a Christian and you are promptly attacked for proselytizing. Interesting isn’t it. People who advocate for open homosexual military service, homosexual marriage, abortion on demand, post billboards declaring that Christianity is based on a myth, and who worship the mythology of Charles Darwin, have the audacity to harangue Christians for “wearing it on their sleeves.”"

They said Don't Ask. We did.

The Pentagon's report on overturning the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is being spun by Secretary Gates and others as being largely supportive of forcing open homosexuality upon our nation's soldiers. But is this the full story?

FRC Action today hosted a webcast with a panel of military leaders, a U.S. Senator, and policy experts called"Mission Compromised: How the Military is Being Used to Advance a Radical Agenda."

With a potential vote looming in the Senate, our panel of experts took a closer look at the Pentagon's report, examining the full impact that overturning the policy would have on our troops, their families, and our national security.

Guests included:

  • Host: Tony Perkins, Marine Corps veteran and President, FRC Action
  • Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Member, Senate Armed Services Committee
  • Gen. Carl Mundy, former Commandant of the Marine Corps
  • Brig. Gen. Douglas Lee, Chaplain (U.S. Army, Ret.)
  • Sgt. Brian Fleming (U.S. Army, Ret.), veteran of the war in Afghanistan and Purple Heart recipient
  • Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow, Legal Studies, Family Research Council
  • Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Family Research Council
  • Tom McClusky, Senior Vice President, FRC Action

Please watch this important webcast, and share it with your friends and family.

Our troops need you to stand for them on this issue.
