Was Coburn’s Request For Prayer Reinforced By Disgraced Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt

(Ah, the return of a “very special snowflake”, Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmidtt… check out this email (truncated), from the Newt Gingrich/Ann Coulter gang of “Human Events”!)

PETITION to STOP ABORTION-FUNDING IN OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE TAKEOVER. Please select, sign, and WE WILL FAX your petition automatically to all 52 “Blue-Dog” House Democrats and/or all 100 Senators, right away (saving you hours of labor!) We've already sent approximately 310,000 faxes, can you help us reach 350,000?


Despite the 60-40 vote in the Senate, we only need a handful of “Blue-Dog” House votes, and we can stopHarry Reid's “Health” Care bill entirely.  Now that Sen. Ben Nelson has compromised and funded abortion, Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) is trying to lead 36 supposedly moderate democrats (and 1 Republican) against Reid's Obamacare, and against abortion funding.  But Stupak needs your help.  We've identified 37 moderates (names below) who voted WITH STUPAK to reduce abortion funding, but then also voted WITH PELOSI to pass socialism in H.R. 3692.  We need a handful of these to switch votes and stand firm against Harry Reid's pro-abortion amendment to H.R. 3590.  If they stand firm against abortion, the entire socialist health care bill can be stopped in its tracks. 

 Continued below the fold… 

WE NEED JUST A HANDFUL OF THESE 37 CONGRESSMEN TO SWITCH.  PLEASE CALL ALL 37 TODAY:   Baca, Berry, Bishop (GA), Cao, Cardoza, Carney, Cooper, Costa, Costello, Cuellar, Dahlkemper, Davis (IL), Donnelly (IN), Doyle, Driehaus, Ellsworth, Etheridge, Kanjorski, Kaptur, Langevin, Lipinski, Lynch, Oberstar, Obey, Ortiz, Perriello, Pomeroy, Rahall, Reyes, Rodriguez,  Ryan (OH),  Salazar,  Snyder,  Space,  Spratt,  Stupak, Wilson (OH) …Call 202-225-3121 (or 224-3121) asking for each, 37 times, and tell them to vote against Harry Reid's “health” amendment to H.R.3590. 

Don't have time to make 37 phone calls? Simply SIGN OUR FAX-PETITION and we will fax your petition to all 52 “Blue-Dog” Democrats automatically.

Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) caved in to pressure from the White House, and broke his pledge to “draw a line in the sand” against abortion funding, by instead reaching a compromise with pro-abortion Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to fund some elective abortions with our tax-dollars. 
Last week the full Senate voted down 54-45 on Senator Nelson (D-NE) and Hatch (R-UT)'s proposed “long-shot” semi-pro-life amendment to prohibit most abortion funding in the Harry Reid “Obamacare” Health Care Bill, but it required 60 votes to overcome Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)'s filibuster.  The language of the new Nelson-Boxer compromise is not close to the Stupak language adopted by the House of Representatives on November 7 by a vote of 240 to 194.  Although I do not personally endorse the Stupak legislation because it still funds child-killing in the rare cases of rape or incest, the  Nelson-Boxer compromise is far worse, and would fund elective abortions by gutting the Hyde Amendment which has barred federal funding for abortion in Medicaid and all other federally funded health-care programs since 1977. Yet aggressive pro-abortion Democrats remain eager to kill even the old Hyde Amendment, which no longer fully applies to the proposed “Obamacare” plan offered by Harry Reid.  But WE HAVE A PLAN….

Over 50 young people prayed with me in Washington DC during our all-night “27 hours of Prayer” vigil on the West Lawn of the Capitol Sunday night, with national pro-life leaders like Pat Mahoney and Chris Slattery, and we prayed specifically that abortion funding would be struck from the President's health care bill.  

Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) issued an apology after his outburst, “you lie,” toward President Obama during his health care speech to Congress on Wednesday.  
“I let my emotions get the best of me,” Wilson said in a statement. “I extend sincere apologies to the president.”  We commend Wilson for his quick humility.  But questions remain:  

Did Obama tell lies during the speech?  Was Wilson right after all?  And why doesn't Obama apologize just as quickly for calling conservatives liars?  In their fact-checking, the press confirmed FIVE WHOPPERS told by the President himself:  

OBAMA LIE #1: “No federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.”  

THE TRUTH:  Harry Reid's amendment to HR 3590 has a Section that reads: “Abortions for Which Public Funding Is Allowed. — The services described in this subparagraph are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted.”  The Washington Times reported:  “You can't get more explicit than that.”  And exposed Obama's lie too:  “Despite what Obama said, the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by federally subsidized private plans.”  So President Obama lied, plain and simple.  

OBAMA LIE #2: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future. Period.”    

THE TRUTH:  The Democrat controlled Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would add $220 billion to the deficit over 10 years, but will not succeed at shrinking the overall costs of our nation's health care.  Republicans claim it's more like $600 billion increased deficit spending.  (Confirmed by Associated Press, 9 Sep 09.)  Either way, Obama lied.    

OBAMA LIE #3: “Don't pay attention to those scary stories about how your benefits will be cut…That will never happen on my watch. I will protect Medicare.”    

THE TRUTH:  The Washington Post reports Obama proposes “to squeeze more than $500 billion out of the growth of Medicare over the next decade….[which has] fueled fears that his effort to expand coverage to millions of younger, uninsured Americans will damage elder care. As a result, barely one-third of seniors support a health-care overhaul, several polls found.” (Washington Post, 9 Aug 09)  Even the Post admits, Obama lied.  

OBAMA LIE #4:  “If you lose your job or change your job, you will be able to get coverage.” 

THE TRUTH:  Whether working or not, rich or poor, you will be ordered to get mandatory government-run health-care coverage, or pay a fine a $3800 fine per family, under the new Senate plan being railroaded through the finance committee by Max Baucus (D-MT).  (New York Times, 9 Sep 09).  Obama pretends you're “able” to get coverage, when he knows it's mandatory (with a big tax increase or “fine” penalty).  Obama lied.  But the biggest of all…  

OBAMA LIE #5:  “The claim, made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but prominent politicians, thatwe plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens, such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple.”    

THE TRUTH:   Money incentives for “end of life” counseling in Pelosi's HR 3962 included pressuring counseling to the elderly, giving doctors a monetary incentive to persuade you to sign a “do not resuscitate” (DNR) order to pull the plug on Grandma, just like the Obama administration already pressures all Veterans to sign them.  (Confirmed by the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, read extensive details at  And under the British NHS government-run health plan, “Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors have warned.”  (The Daily Telegraph, 2 Sep 09).  Dr. Ewing Cook just admitted intentionally killing patients who signed DNR authorizations during Hurricane Katrina.  “I gave her medicine so I could get rid of her faster…there's no question I hastened her demise.”  Bottom line: Grandma, don't sign Obama's DNR order, even if your doctor gets a bonus check from the President for talking you into that.   

Friends, our nation stands in the midst of a spiritual war to save or destroy unborn babies. You and I stand in this battle together.  We must stand strong!
