Victory in Texas!! GOODBYE PLANNED PARENTHOOD!

Texans boot Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has been shut down in the Texas panhandle.

American Life League's (ALL) Stop Planned Parenthood, or
Stopp International, says it took a long time, but their campaign against Planned Parenthood finally got some results. "For 12 years in the Texas panhandle, there has been a fight against Planned Parenthood," he notes. "Planned Parenthood, in 1997, operated 19 clinics in the Texas panhandle."

Then the state reduced funding for the organization, and pro-life workers also continued in their efforts to shut Planned Parenthood's doors. "And as of December 31, there will no longer be any Planned Parenthood offices in the Texas panhandle," Sedlak explains. "They will all be gone."

The two remaining clinics in Amarillo have disaffiliated with the national organization. Sedlak says other cities can accomplish the same goal if they are determined, and information on that is available on the Stopp website.

Omigosh!! This is fantastic!!! You see we can make a difference if we continue to fight against the immorals of this nation!

Praise God! For the many of thousands, millions even, of babies that will not be brutally butchered in these slaughter houses.

This is truly a day for celebration and I applaud Texas for this miraculous victory!

Israel says Gaza assault 'war to the bitter end'

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israel obliterated symbols of Hamas power on the third day of what the defense minister described Monday as a "war to the bitter end," striking next to the Hamas premier's home, and devastating a security compound and a university building.

The three-day death toll rose to at least 315 by Monday morning, with some 1,400 wounded. The U.N. said at least 51 of the dead were civilians, and medics said eight children under the age of 17 were killed in two separate strikes overnight. Israel launched its campaign, the deadliest against Palestinians in decades, on Saturday in retaliation for rocket fire aimed at civilians in southern Israeli towns.

Since then, the number of Israeli troops on the Gaza border has doubled and the Cabinet approved the call-up of 6,500 reserve soldiers.

The strikes have driven Hamas leaders into hiding and appear to have gravely damaged the organization's ability to launch rockets, but barrages continued.

Sirens warning of incoming rockets sent Israelis scrambling for cover throughout the day.

One medium-range rocket fired at the Israeli city of Ashkelon killed an Arab construction worker there Monday and wounded several others. He was the second Israeli killed since the beginning of the offensive, and the first person ever to be killed by a rocket in Ashkelon, a city of 120,000.

On Sunday, Hamas missiles struck for the first time near the city of Ashdod, twice as far from Gaza as Ashkelon and only 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Israel's heart in Tel Aviv. Hamas leaders have also threatened to renew suicide attacks inside Israel.

At first light Monday, strong winds blew black smoke from the bombed sites over Gaza City's deserted streets. The air hummed with the buzz of drone aircraft and the roar of jets, punctuated by airstrike explosions. Palestinian health officials said one strike killed four Islamic Jihad terrorists and a child.

Some Palestinians ventured outside for mourning. In northern Gaza, a father lifted the body of his 4-year-old during a funeral Monday for five children from the same family killed in an Israeli missile strike.

On Monday, the White House released a statement saying "in order for the violence to stop, Hamas must stop firing rockets into Israel and agree to respect a sustainable and durable ceasefire."

Most of those killed since Saturday were members of Hamas security forces, though the precise numbers remain unclear. A Hamas police spokesman, Ehab Ghussen, said 180 members of the Hamas security forces were among the dead, and the U.N. agency in charge of Palestinian refugees said at least 51 of the dead were civilians. A rise in civilian casualties could intensify international pressure on Israel to end the offensive.

Israel's intense bombings - more than 300 airstrikes since midday Saturday - reduced dozens of buildings to rubble. The military said naval vessels also bombarded targets from the sea.

One strike destroyed a five-story building in the women's wing at Islamic University, one of the most prominent Hamas symbols in Gaza. Other attacks ravaged a compound controlled by Preventive Security, one of the group's chief security arms, and destroyed a house next to the residence of Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister.

Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense minister, told parliament Israel was not fighting the residents of Gaza. "But we have a war to the bitter end against Hamas and its branches," he said. Barak said the goal is to deal Hamas a "severe blow" and that the operation would be "widened and deepened as needed."

In Israel, 17 people have been killed in attacks from Gaza since the beginning of the year, including nine civilians - six of them killed by rockets - and eight soldiers, according to Israel's Foreign Ministry.

Israeli security officials have warned that the terrorists' range now includes Beersheba, a major city 30 miles (50 kilometers) from Gaza. Resident Mazal Ivgi, 62, said she had prepared a bomb shelter. "In the meantime we don't really believe it's going to happen, but when the first boom comes people will be worried," she said.

Israel began Saturday's assault by targeting Hamas security installations, and has broadened the attacks since then. On Sunday planes struck dozens of smuggling tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border, cutting off a key lifeline that had supplied Hamas with weapons and Gaza with commercial goods.

In Jerusalem, Israel's Cabinet approved a call-up of 6,500 reserve soldiers Sunday in apparent preparation for a ground offensive. The final decision to call up reserves has yet to be made by the defense minister, and the Cabinet decision could be a pressure tactic. Military experts said Israel would need at least 10,000 soldiers for a full-scale invasion.

Israel has doubled the number of troops around Gaza and also deployed an artillery battery. Several hundred reservists have already been summoned to join their units, but no full combat formations have been mobilized so far.

The assault has sparked diplomatic fallout. Syria decided to suspend indirect peace talks with Israel, and the U.N. Security Council called on both sides to halt the fighting and asked Israel to allow humanitarian supplies into Gaza. Israel opened one of Gaza's border crossings Monday, and about 40 trucks had entered with food and medical supplies by midday, military spokesman Peter Lerner said.

Egypt also opened its borders to Gaza and allowed trucks loaded with humanitarian aid to enter the Rafah terminal Monday. It was also taking in wounded Palestinians from Gaza, with more than a dozen Egyptian ambulances waiting at the crossing.

The Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, who heads a moderate government in the West Bank and is holding peace talks with Israel, issued his strongest condemnation yet of the operation, calling it a "sweeping Israeli aggression against Gaza" and saying he would consult with his bitter rivals in Hamas in an effort to end it.

Israel is trying to avoid civilian casualties, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told reporters Monday, while "Hamas is looking for children to kill."
"Hamas is targeting deliberately kindergartens and schools and citizens and civilians because this is according to their values. Our values are completely different. We are trying to target Hamas, which hides among civilians," Livni said.

This may sound heartless, but no matter what Israel does to protect itself from its enemies I am 110% behind them. And I will never stop praying for them. That Hamas are nothing but sadistic cowards and I applaud Israel for taking them down.

Seems like forever

Gosh, it seems like forever since I have blogged on here. We woke up to a hot and muggy morning, ick!! I cannot believe the temperature here is 70 degrees, when there are people dealing with snow storms, that's the south for you, hot and miserable. And now here comes the rain.

Plus, some cat decided to spray the outside of our house and porch, sooo...that disgusting smell is permeating everywhere and it is simply unbearable. Okay, enough griping, hee...



I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, we sure did. We had my in-laws over and some friends and enjoyed a great feast. We then watched It's a Wonderful Life and August Rush, too great heartwarming movies.



MOVING ON...

I would like to ask all of my Christian friends all over the world to please join me this New Year's Eve and pray for our perspective countries, and hope that our sovereign Lord will take back what is rightfully His. That people will once again turn to God, their Creator, and let Him reign in their hearts, homes and governments.

It's never too late. People can change and I am harboring hope that maybe, just maybe we will see the right kind changes. I will never stop praying for abortion to be erradicated, that the homosexual agenda will fall completely apart and they will have no more leverage, that Christian nations will once again be Christian nations. So much to pray for but we have Jehovah God the most powerful and loving Father in the universe to answer the prayers of His beloved children.

Thank you!

The Christmas play....

I nailed every song in the Christmas play!! I signed with heart and it came through, so I was told later on by one of the people who came to watch the play!

The best part of the entire play was my beautiful Luner, who played, the Little Drummer Boy. I was so proud of him! All eyes turned and focused on him as he made his way slowly down the isle. At the end of the play we were all introduced and when his name was called and the part he played, he got a thunderous applause! Mommy was beeming from ear to ear! I hope hubby did a good job taping my baby. Although, he said the battery on our old camcorder was flashing....I had just charged it the day before. We need a new camcorder, for sure.

MOVING ON....

This makes me boiling mad....

Congress gets raise, Americans continue struggle

A taxpayer watchdog group is expressing outrage that lawmakers on Capitol Hill are getting a pay raise, while many Americans are struggling to hold down a job due to the troubled U.S. economy.

Members of Congress will be receiving a $4,700 pay increase this year, even though more than two million of their constituents have lost their jobs. Congress has set up a structure where they automatically receive a cost-of-living adjustment or pay raise every year unless they act to stop it.

Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, says the pay raise sends a poor message. "It really flies in the face of any concept of shared sacrifice or recognition by the members of Congress of the challenges that everyday Americans are facing," he contends.

Lawmakers, Ellis notes, would be wise to put a freeze on their salary until the unemployment rate drops.

Well, how nice for Congress. I know I sure could use an automatic cost of living pay raise every year.

Most Americans would benefit from that, who wouldn't? Hard-working Americans are barely able to keep their roofs over their heads and food on the table for their families right now, and probably have cut back severely on many expenditures, like Christmas and birthdays.

What happened to "redistributing the wealth?" I know I could use the extra cash right now.

As for freezing their salary, I wouldn't hold my breath. Congress is greedy and does not care whether or not we have homes, health insurance or food, just as long as they do. Why should they? It is not coming out their pockets.

GET COZY, JOSEY!

I need to apologize for posting on this book so late. So to all involved I am deeply sorry.

I really loved this book. Josey Anderson, the heroine, is so real to life it is amazing. She is a mother of fraternal twins, a boy and girl. And they keep her on her toes.

Josey's husband decids to move his family from Moscow to an even colder and harsher environment, a Siberian village. Josey finds herself juggling toddler twins, in a small home with NO INDOOR PLUMBING! Hand washing laundry in sub-zero temperatures etc.
We follow her in her journey as she discovers an inner strength to persevere her daily struggles. She is basically left to fend for herself and children as her husband begans to reach out and try and minister to the local men. You will definitely laugh at some of her shenanigans but embrace the tender heart that she has.
You will love Josey even more after reading this book.

Obama planning billion-dollar 'bailout' for abortion industry

A pro-life group in Washington has launched a campaign to oppose what it calls president-elect Barack Obama's planned $1.5 billion "bailout" of the abortion industry.

Last week, the Obama-Biden Transition Project posted a report on its
website that calls for dramatic policy reversals on abortion, including $1 billion in taxpayer money for international abortion groups like Planned Parenthood. The report, titled "Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration," also calls for a 133-percent increase in funding for the Title X program, which funds Planned Parenthood clinics across the country.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, is hoping a Republican-led effort in the Senate will block Obama's plan to substantially increase taxpayer funding of the abortion industry.

"This billion-dollar bailout of the abortion industry comes at a time, number one, when the economy is suffering dramatically with true need. And number two, it communicates an incredible depth of arrogance, especially when you consider that the vast majority of Americans -- men and women, no matter who you talk to -- they don't believe that people who don't believe in abortion should be funding it," she contends. "Most Americans don't believe that we should be funding abortions, especially in a time of economic crisis."

The Susan B. Anthony List has started a "Stop the Abortion Bailout" campaign designed to recruit thousands of activists to send letters to their senators "with the goal of securing the 41 votes necessary to sustain a Senate filibuster of the abortion bailout."

Gosh, this just makes me sick to my stomach. I don't even know what to say. One world government is close to coming.

Snow Day

I guess I should say, "ice day" instead. We had a huge ice storm come through last night and needless to say the schools were closed, great joy hit this household. I got to stay home with my boys!

I got to experience what it is like to be a stay-at-home mom and I loved it! My boys crawled into bed with me and one held my hand while the other played with my hair. We played and giggled and finally they got a little too wild so they left to watch cartoons.

I got out of bed, and made homemade pancakes and French toast. The boys were so happy! Then I finished up laundry from yesterday. I then dusted the entire house, moved some stuff around and swept all of my floors. Running on empty I decided to make my famous eggplant casserole. Wolfie helped me a lot, with stirring in the ingredients, what a good little cook. Although, when he saw what it looked like in the mixing bowl, he commented, "it looks like puke." lol! And did not want to try it when it was baked.

I then made the boys sit down at the table and do some reading and writing for 15 minutes, I told them once the timer went off, they were free to play.

I was tired but felt great. I spent quality time with my babies and got my house in order.

Then hubby called and told he was getting off early and asked me if I had fixed lunch yet? I told him that I was making my casserole and got a "ewww.." type of response. He told me that he would buy Chinese for Luner and McDonald's for Wolfie. He then asked me if I wanted anything and I sheeplishly responded, "coffee" meaning my snickers latte. I got a resounding "no" for that request. Oh well.

Well, hubby came home, surprised the boys and then I noticed in my husband's hand was a very familiar cup! Yep! He went and bought me my latte!! I asked him if he asked for soy milk? And he told me he asked Larry (the owner of the coffee shop) what my regular was and bought it. Yeah, Larry knows me by name, lol!

In all this wonderful time today I did get some pretty bad news. My pastor's wife's mother, Lynda (my spiritual mom) was in a very serious car accident today and is in serious condition. Please keep her in prayer and my pastor's family in prayer.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, I know I am!! Although, tomorrow I have to go back to work...*tears*

Palin's church severely damaged by arson

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's home church was badly damaged by arson, leading the governor to apologize Saturday if the fire was connected to "undeserved negative attention" from her campaign as the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Damage to the Wasilla Bible Church was estimated at $1 million, authorities said. No one was injured in the fire, which was set Friday night while a handful of people, including two children, were inside, according to James Steele, the Central Mat-Su fire chief.

He said the blaze was being investigated as an arson. Steele said he didn't know of any recent threats to the church, and authorities did not know whether Palin's connection to the church was relevant to the fire.
"It's hard to say at this point. Everything is just speculation," he said.

Pastor Larry Kroon declined to say whether the church had received any recent threats.

Palin was not at the church at the time of the fire. She stopped by Saturday, and her spokesman Bill McAllister said in a statement that the governor told an assistant pastor she was sorry if the fire was connected to the "undeserved negative attention" the church has received since she became the vice presidential candidate Aug. 29.

"Whatever the motives of the arsonist, the governor has faith in the scriptural passage that what was intended for evil will in some way be used for good," McAllister said.

The 1,000-member evangelical church was the subject of intense scrutiny after Palin was named Sen. John McCain's running mate. Early in Palin's campaign, the church was criticized for promoting in a Sunday bulletin a Love Won Out conference in Anchorage sponsored by Focus on the Family. The conference promised to "help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome."

The fire was set at the entrance of the church and moved inward as a small group of women worked on crafts, Steele said. The group was alerted to the blaze by a fire alarm.


This is just my opinion, but I would categorize this crime as a "Hate Crime" and not arson. This was an intentional threat. There were people inside the church, women and children, and there was an injury. It could even be categorized as attempted murder. I disagree with the authorities on the arson charge, it was a lot more than that.

I just don't understand the blind hate that some people have toward Sarah Palin? It is time to move on and focus on what the future will hold. She lost the election can they not get passed that?

And why attack her church? What were they trying to resolve or what message they were trying to convey? What horrid situation.

Weekend post...

I am throwing a small birthday party for Luner tomorrow evening and I probably won't have time to blog. Saturday is his real birthday, but our church is having it's Christmas potluck and no one would have made it to his party.

Gosh! I have such a huge challenge ahead of me. I am signing three songs for our Christmas play next Sunday and a lot of Christmas songs for Sunday services as well and they are HARD! I need to practice and I am one of the biggest procrastinators known to man. I need prayer! Hee....

MOVING ON....

Video of Enter Sampson by the Apologetix -

If you haven't heard of the Apologetix, they are a young group of Christian guys who turn secular songs into Christian ones.

If you were a Metallica fan, I know you have to recognize the tune of Enter Sandman.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!!






FRIDAY QUESTION: If Barack Obama is linked to the Blagojevich scandal, how will the mainstream media handle it?

Viewer discretion advised....not for kids

I need to warn viewers that this video is very disturbing. Not only does Jack Black portrays Jesus in a very sick and demented way he distorts and takes biblical scriptures out of context. All in protest of the victory of Prop. 8. They are so angry at the Christian community that they had to lash out.

The reason I am sharing this video is for you be aware of all the actors who mock the Holy Bible, our precious Lord and Savior and every bible-believing Holy Spirit filled Christian.

If you want to demand an apology from Jack Black, here is his publicists number:

Supreme Court rejects Obama citizenship case

CBNNews.com
December 8, 2008

CBNNews.com - The U.S. Supreme Court decided, Monday, it would not hear a case challenging the citizenship of President-elect Barack Obama.

The case was filed during the election by New Jersey attorney Leo Donofrio, claiming Obama was a British subject at birth, and therefore ineligible to be President.

Donofrio argued that even though Obama was born in Hawaii, he had dual nationality because his father was born in the jurisdiction of United Kingdom. This, he said, meant the future President could ot be a "natural born citizen" of the U.S.

RELATED STORY:Case Against Obama Citizenship at SCOTUSThe case also questioned the citizenship of Obama's former opponent Sen. John McCain, alleging he was not an American citizen from birth because he was born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936. The area was not controlled by the U.S. until 1979.

The Supreme Court did not give reason for dismissing the case.

At least one other appeal over Obama's citizenship remains at the high court. That case is with Philip Berg of Pennsylvania, arguing that Obama was born in Kenya.

Obama says he was born in Hawaii, and Hawaiian officials have confirmed that. A digital copy of Obama's birth certificate was also posted online.

And there you have it. We will never know the truth and I still believe that Obama is not a natural born citizen. Just my opinion folks.

Obama picks open-borders advocate for administration

From onenewsnow.com

An immigration reform organization is voicing concern about president-elect Barack Obama's naming of a pro-illegal alien activist to his White House staff.

Obama has named Cecilia Munoz to serve as director of intergovernmental affairs in his administration. Munoz is an 18-year veteran of the National Council of La Raza, which has been a leading advocate for illegal immigrants. According to Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Munoz has been a longtime supporter of open borders.

"Cecilia Munoz has been a longtime advocate for immigration policies, giving preferences to people based on their ethnic origin. She has also been at the forefront of the effort to discredit and to silence those groups that oppose amnesty and that want to set reasonable limits on immigration," he contends. "She is the one who claimed after the defeat of the 2007 amnesty bill that it was the result of a wave of hate spreading across the country, and she really initiated this very vicious campaign to try to get FAIR and other organizations barred, basically, from the media."

It remains to be seen, Mehlman adds, just what kind of influence Munoz will have in shaping Barack Obama's immigration policy, but he believes she will certainly have access to the top-level decision makers in his administration.

Now if anyone is familiar with the advocate group La Raza, you are very aware of how intolerant these very radical people are. They are the ones screaming that they want to take back California, blah...blah...blah. They hate white people and anyone else who is NOT of Hispanic origin, I kid you not. In my opinion, they are no better than the KKK or Black Panthers.

This should have every natural born and legal American citizen worried. If this woman gets the control she is seeking our borders will no longer have any protection. AND all of us who work so hard for our money will never experience retirement. Why? Because we will not be able to save enough money to do so. Taxes will go up, healthcare prices will sky-rocket even more and don't forget food, gas and mortgages. This will not only effect us, it will effect generations to come.

As it is most of us live from paycheck to paycheck. It really angers me that my children will go without because of an asinine open border policy that should never, ever be allowed.

I cannot even begin to fathom the ramifications of an open border policy.

"Change." I am beginning to loathe that word.

Amnesty...during the recession?

As most of you know I am totally against legalizing millions of illegal aliens, more so now than ever. I am not being cold or cruel, but I will be darned if I have to scrimp and save for my own family and then have to pay heavy taxes to support people that shouldn't be in my country anyhow.

From OneNewsNow.com

An immigration reform activist thinks it will be tough for Democrats to push through an amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants when the new Congress and new president take the reins next year.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) has indicated that he wants to pass amnesty legislation early in the next congressional session, even though many analysts believe the economic recession has pushed the immigration issue to the back burner. In a recent action alert,
Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) says Reid, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), and president-elect Barack Obama want to demonstrate the bipartisan "accomplishment" -- even as millions of Americans are losing their jobs. CAPS spokesman Rick Oltman says an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose amnesty.

"We know that the public does not support an amnesty. [And] we know that talk radio and a lot of cable news [programs] would make this [story] front and center every single day they broadcast," he says.

"And so while Harry Reid may think it's easy, I don't think it's going to be that easy," Oltman suggests. "[I]t's just possible that the new administration may not want to squander any goodwill that it has on something as foolhardy as an amnesty."


Oltman believes that this latest amnesty proposal will spark the same outrage that killed the last bill.

Senator Reid himself noted just before Thanksgiving that his own state, where unemployment has jumped to 7.6 percent, has been hit harder than most by the downturn in the national economy. His statement came the day after the Senate had approved legislation extending benefits to 20 weeks in states where unemployment exceeds six percent.
