Wiley Drake Is #23 on Obama's Enemy List

Wiley Drake, who is praying for President Obama's death, breathlessly reports that his name has turned up on President Obama's "enemies list" ... at least according to the eminently trustworthy tabloid Globe Magazine:

According to GLOBE Magazine, "the President has drawn up a secret enemies list. In a blockbuster world exclusive, GLOBE bares 25 names - and sources tell you how and why the White House intends to shut them up."

Pastor Wiley Drake is listed as enemy number 23 of those Obama would most want to "shut up."

Drake has not only prayed Imprecatory prayer against Obama but is one of the plaintiffs in a Federal Case to be heard Oct. 5 in California Federal District Court.

Drake and others believe that Obama needs to prove whether or not he is a Natural Born citizen, as required by the Constitution. If he is not, they believe he should be removed

Pastor Wiley said, "I would have never believed we would have Czars in America. I thought that was Russia and the communist countries."

Unfortunately, the Globe article isn't available online, but this blog reports that the 25 names on Obama's supposed list include the following:

Glenn Beck, Larry Sinclair, Joe Wilson, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Orly Taitz, Pat Boone, Jon Voight, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Rupert Murdoch, Jesse Jackson, Dick Cheney, Bill O'Reilly, Toby Keith, Rex Rammell, Hank Williams Jr., Steven Anderson, Saul Anuzis, Bill Cunningham, Paul Krugman, John Rich, Wiley Drake, Alex Jones and Michelle Malkin.

Rep. Trent Franks Declares President Obama an "Enemy of Humanity"

Speaking at the recent How To Take Back America Conference, Rep. Trent Franks declared that nobody should be shocked that President Obama does all sorts of "insane things" because he is an "enemy of humanity":

Obama's first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers' money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries...there's almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn't be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can't do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity.

Concerned Women Concerned About Women on Submarines

Apparently, Concerned Women for America is now concerned about women serving on submarines ... or, more accurately, the babies those women may or may not be carrying while serving on said submarines:

Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation's largest public policy women's organization, is disappointed in recent statements by Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus indicating their wish to lift the ban on women serving aboard submarines. Admiral Mullen advocated the policy change in written congressional testimony on Friday. Navy Secretary Mabus said he was "moving out aggressively on this."

"Unlike any other assignment in the U.S. Navy, the submarine service is a hazardous environment for women of child-bearing age," noted CWA President Wendy Wright. "No other assignment exposes women to a constantly recycled atmosphere of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and more than 200 potentially toxic chemicals. Those contaminants remain even with filtering. While normal adults can adjust to this environment, a developing child in the first trimester cannot, and the levels of carbon dioxide that crewmembers are exposed to can be linked to birth defects. Also, no study has been done to determine the impact of this environment on a woman's fertility."

"Another serious consideration is the threat to the life and health of the women assigned to submarine crews should an ectopic pregnancy occur. These cases, about four out of every 1,000 women per year, can be life-threatening situations that demand evacuation," Wright said. "For a great many women, the acute symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are their first indication that they are even pregnant. Pre-deployment pregnancy testing is not a silver bullet either, since tests may not give a positive reading in the earliest stages of pregnancy."

"Along with the medical issues, there are very real social and psychological difficulties posed by mixing the sexes in the 'Silent Service,'" Wright added. "Military readiness and cohesiveness will be affected, and commanders will have the added difficulties of harassment and fraternization to deal with, which are inevitable in this situation of confined quarters with extremely little privacy. National security is the Navy's primary mission, not advancing women's careers."

Coral Ridge Dissidents Go From D. James Kennedy to Gary Cass

For the last several weeks, we've been watching the fight taking place at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the church founded by the late D. James Kennedy where an effort led by Kennedy's daughter, Jennifer Kennedy Cassidy of Coral Ridge Ministries, to remove Tullian Tchividjian from his position as Kennedy's replacement recently failed.

Tchividjian attributed the removal effort to the fact that he doesn't "preach politics from the pulpit" like Kennedy did and that has apparently upset Kennedy's daughter and others in the church, who are now breaking away entirely and forming their own church, complete with sermons from Gary Cass of the ultra-right-wing Christian Anti-Defamation Commission:

A new congregation may be in the birthing by dissident members of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church who failed to oust Pastor Tullian Tchividjian last week.

The dissidents, who lost a congregational vote Sept. 20 to fire Tchividjian from the Fort Lauderdale church, held a worship service in Coconut Creek on Sunday, drawing a reported 400-plus people. Among them were Coral Ridge's choir leader and organist, both of whom resigned last week.

"This is definitely a breakaway church," said Ronald Boender, a former Coral Ridge supporter and founder of Butterfly World, where the service was held. "There is absolutely no going back."

With the working name of The Church -- members will choose a formal name later -- the group has already applied for 501(c)3 nonprofit status, said Jim Filosa, one of the leaders. He said the group plans a closed meeting of an "organizational committee" tonight.

The service followed the resignation last week of Samuel Metzger, Coral Ridge's organist, and choir director John Wilson. Also last week, the church fired Carol Wilson from her volunteer job as director of its concert series.

John Wilson and Metzger helped conduct the Sunday service, packing a building at Butterfly World. Wilson directed a 65-singer choir, many of whom left the Coral Ridge choir last week. Metzger traded his spot at Coral Ridge's five-keyboard pipe organ for an organ synthesizer at the service.

...

Preaching the sermon was the Rev. Gary Cass, founder of the California-based Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. Cass was executive director of Coral Ridge Ministries' Center for Reclaiming America from 2004 until 2007, when it closed.

With Healthcare Reform, Obama Is Re-Enacting Slavery

We are working out way through the hours of footage we gathered at the How To Take Back America Conference and editing it down for easier consumption.

Below is audio from the workshop called "How to Stop Socialism in Health Care," featuring Larry Huntoon, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Frank Rosenbloom of Oregon Right to Life, and Dr. Allen Unruh. 

Huntoon, representing the AAPS (which bills itself as a conservative alternative to the AMA), argued that any governmental “interference” in the practice of health case is unconstitutional, and that the Obama administration is really only interested in power. “Just like the fraud and deception of socialism itself,” he said, proposals for reform have more to do with government gaining control over the lives of individuals than of health care.

Dr. Allen Unruh, whose speech was largely a series of quotes and quips, warned that “we either live in freedom or in servitude, there is no middle ground" and claimed that Obama's health care plans would result in dismantling the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 13th amendments, stating that it would turn all doctors into “slaves of the state” and result in "slavery reenacted by our first black president."

For his part, Rosenbloom lashed out at President Obama’s policies and at suggestions that opposition to his administration reflected racism, oddly joking that even though his wife was not white, he loved her anyway. Obama, he said, is a supporter of Planned Parenthood and therefore responsible for genocide against black children. “Liberals are the true racists in this society,” he proclaimed. But he was just warming up. Rosenbloom compared Obama to Adolf Hitler, saying “fascism is happening here and now.” Recalling President Obama’s statement that if his daughter mistakenly became pregnant, he would not want her to be punished with a baby, Rosenbloom said that is the sort of “moral sewage that is running our country.”

Among Rosenbloom’s other statements:

  • For President Obama, he said, “it’s not about health care, it’s about subjugation and control.”
  • “Obama’s not stupid. I’m sorry, but he’s just evil.”
  • “He is a statist. He believes in control by government and its dear leaders, fascism by any other name.”

Rosenbloom called for an end to Medicare and Medicaid, saying that people could be provided for through tax subsidies for buying insurance. “We must oppose this diabolical change for government of the people, by the people and for the people will perish from the face of the earth.”

Finally, during the Q & A, an audience member asked what they could to do prevent the government from setting up quarantines or forcing vaccinations in order to try and stem a swine flu epidemic, to which the panelists suggested "maybe the Second Amendment is a good thing to think about:

You Learn Something New Every Day

Did you know that Canton, Ohio is the home of the Christian Hall of Fame? I didn't.

And the late Jerry Falwell is its newest inductee:

Dr. Jerry Falwell, founder of Liberty University, was honored in an induction ceremony for the Christian Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at Canton Baptist Temple in Canton, Ohio.

Pastor Mike Frazier of Canton Baptist Temple presented a large portrait of Dr. Falwell to Jonathan Falwell, son of Jerry Falwell and pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church. The portrait will hang in the halls of Canton Baptist Temple among a total of 124 enshrinees.

For many years, Canton Baptist Temple was one of the 10 largest churches in America. In 1966, Harold Henniger, then pastor, felt there should be some hall of fame in the United States to recognize the influence of the great heroes of the faith throughout the centuries. (The Football Hall of Fame for the National Football League is located in Canton). Today the church's Christian Hall of Fame is a broad-based representation of history makers and those who influence the world today, including the Apostle Paul, Martin Luther, John Wesley and Charles Finney, among others.

“Jerry Falwell, Sr., is honored for having been one of the great heroes of the faith in the last century and this century until his death May 15, 2007,” said Mike Frazier, pastor of Canton Baptist Temple.

The induction ceremony was held during the annual meeting of the pastors of Baptist Bible Fellowship. The pastors rose to applaud in appreciation for the great contribution Jerry Falwell has made to the Fellowship.

“Jerry Falwell has done more for God than any other pastor in our Fellowship and perhaps has done more for God than any other man in our generation," Frazier said.

Take Back America - Reader's Digest Version

The organizers of the How to Take Back America conference kicked off the event on Friday afternoon with a press conference, and they hit a lot of the highlights we can expect to revisit this weekend:  America is either following the classic model of a Marxist takeover on its way to being an eastern bloc country, or it's on the verge of a Nazi-like dictatorship, or both.  Health care reform is about rationing, euthanasia, and pushing the elderly and vets off a cliff.  The "radical homosexual activist movement" is the biggest threat to religious liberty, and ENDA is a bid to "criminalize Christianity."  Legalized abortion is "black genocide."

Phyllis Schlafly, the matriarch of the event, said she believed President Obama was taking America down the road to socialism. Americans, she said, “don’t want our country run by Czars – that was a Russian idea.”
 
Just in case we thought we’d heard it all and could spend the rest of the weekend in the hotel bar, Janet Folger breathlessly promised that on Saturday she would launch a new grassroots movement of a type never tried before, one that is going to change America.  Stay tuned.
