President Obama’s Presidential Appointments
“Judge me by those who I surround myself with.” President Obama.
Joe Biden, Vice President
Vice President, a Catholic, is a committed Pro Choice advocate and a supporter of abortion.
The Church: Archbishop Raymond Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura.
Last year in an address to a Human Life International conference Archbishop Raymond Burke, said, The “perennial discipline of the Church [has] prohibited the giving of Holy Communion or the granting of a Church funeral to those who persist after admonition in the grave violation of the moral law…” To be sure, Archbishop Burke was lamenting the scandal brought about by dissenting bishops and politicians who favor abortion and same sex marriage.

Lord, pray for our bishops and our politicians.
Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State
The President’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is also an admirer of Saul Alinski, so much so that she wrote her thesis on this charismatic community organizer while attending Wellesley College.
Ref: For Clinton and Obama, a Common Ideological Touchstone By Peter Slevin Washington Post Staff Writer Sunday, March 25, 2007CHICAGO – The job offer to “Miss Hillary Rodham, Wellesley College” was dated Oct. 25, 1968, and signed by Saul D. Alinsky, the charismatic community organizer who believed that the urban poor could become their own best advocates in a world that largely ignored them.
Alinsky thought highly of 21-year-old Rodham*, a student government president who grew up in the Chicago suburbs. She was in the midst of a year-long analysis of Alinsky’s aggressive mobilizing tactics, and he was searching for “competent political literates” to move to Chicago to build grass-roots organizations.
Seventeen years later, another young honor student was offered a job as an organizer in Chicago. By then, Alinsky had died, but a group of his disciples hired Barack Obama, a 23-year-old Columbia University graduate, to organize black residents on the South Side, while learning and applying Alinsky’s philosophy of street-level democracy.
At a United States (US) House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that there was a new administration in place with different **values, beliefs and global agenda.
Lord, pray for her.

Clinton’s remarks on Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood.
Clinton praised Margaret Sanger, the racist and eugenicist founder of Planned Parenthood Federation. She compared Sanger to Thomas Jefferson!
She also implied this: The full force of the US government will be used to get governments to change their laws on abortion all over the world. “The US is on the brink of having the most radical abortion laws in the world–abortion for any reason and no reason through all nine months of pregnancy.” Hillary Clinton wants to promote this for the entire world.
She detailed the decadent life and ideology of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, her immoral principles, her hatred of marriage, Christian morality and the natural law. One of Sanger’s most notorious phrases: “The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its young children is to kill it.”
Sanger provided one the most comprehensive treatments of (PP) available anywhere: everything from its racist and eugenic roots, to its vile sex-education programs for youngsters; to its teaching kindergarten children that homosexuality is a positive lifestyle; to its recommending fornication and all forms of perverse activity to school children without the parents’ knowledge or consent.

Margaret Sanger, Hillary’s Hero.
“The Catholic Thing” FRIDAY, 05 JUNE 2009 By George Marlin
(exerpts from the article) http://www.thecatholicthing.org/columns/2009/margaret-sanger-hillarys-hero.html
…At Planned Parenthood’s recent annual gala in Houston, Mrs. Clinton, accepting its highest honor, the Margaret Sanger Award, said “I want to assure you that reproductive rights. . .will be a key to the foreign policy of this administration.”
…“reproductive rights” (a/k/a abortion) is a key issue in Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The taking of innocent life gets the same priority as issues of war and peace.
… Secretary Clinton also told her adoring audience, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” and “Margaret Sanger’s work is not yet done.”
… Margaret Sanger (1879-1966) the founder of Planned Parenthood and the editor of The Birth Control Review was one of America’s leading proponents of a particularly crude kind of eugenics.
… And now our nation’s chief foreign policy [spokesperson] calls on Sanger’s heirs to finish her work. What a scary prospect for the world’s common folks. Lord, pray for her.
Mother Theresa of Calcutta “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.”
The loss of human identity
Abortion is a warning of something pervasive and deeply rooted in our society—the loss of human identity, so that men and women no longer see themselves as called to participate in God’s creative power.
Lord, pray for us.
Van Jones: Former ‘Green Jobs Czar’ for President Obama.
Jones told the East Bay Express in 2005: “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th , and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist. (…) I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.” He is a self-described ’communist’ arrested during Rodney King riots.

Anita Dunn, former White House Communications Director
Dunn, told a high school graduation class that Mao Zedong, Marxist political philosopher, and leader of the Chinese Revolution was one of her “favorite political philosophers.”
Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President is a staunch supporter of the radical communist, Van Jones
Lord, pray for them.
Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security
Napolitano issued a warning against right-wing extremism. Her committee said, “It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,”
Lord, pray for her and our administration.
Harold Knox: President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
Knox, called Pope Benedict XVI and certain Roman Catholic bishops discredited leaders. Knox is a militant gay activist. Lord, pray for him.
Cass Sunstein, The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).
Sunstein on Taxes
He said, “There is no liberty without dependency.”
Editor’s note: Dependency should not be on the State nor this administration, but only to God.
Sunstein said on government regulation: hunting and animal rights.
“We ought to ban hunting”- Cass Sunstein, in a 2007 speech at Harvard University.
“[Humans’] willingness to subject animals to unjustified suffering will be seen … as a form of unconscionable barbarity… morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings.”
”The law should impose further regulation on hunting, scientific experiments, entertainment, and (above all) farming to ensure against unnecessary animal suffering. A state could certainly confer rights on a pristine area, or a painting, and allow people to bring suit on its behalf, without therefore saying that that area and that painting may not be owned.”
Editor’s Note: Are there not, already, laws on the books against animal cruelty, i.e., illegal interstate dog fighting–federal felony charges against Michael Vick.
Lord, pray for him and our administration.
There are over a million deer roaming the country side in South Carolina and in Maryland hunters culled the woods of 250,000 deer in 2010.
The White Tail Buck is an extraordinary animal to see in nature. Nothing is more American and more central to our beliefs than our God-given right to hunt (*See Genesis 9:3). Hunting not only provides food for our families but aides in wildlife preservation and population control of the deer.
The Gospel message:
When I see the heavens, the work of your hands, the moon and the stars which you arranged, what is man that you should keep him in mind, mortal man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him little less than a god; with glory and honor you have crowned him, gave him power over the works of your hand, put all things under his feet. All of them sheep and cattle, yes even the savage beasts, birds of the air and fish that make their way through the waters. How great is your name, O Lord our God, through all the earth! Psalm 8
”Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant. Genesis 9:3 New American Standard Bible (©1995)
John P. Holdren, the President’s Director of the Office of Science and Technology.
John P. Holdren advocates mandatory abortions to control population.
“It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
“It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society.”
Lord, pray for him.
Sterilization and Population Control
[He said], “adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods would be acceptable, to control population growth.”
Holdren’s disturbing beliefs about America, capitalism and humanity – National Conservative Politics: Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/conservative-politics-in-national/science-czar-john-p-holdren-s-disturbing-beliefs-about-america-capitalism-and-humanity#ixzz1R9xp6uL5.
He wrote that it was imperative “to convince society and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demandoing, and all-consuming population growth.” [He] predicted: “If … population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.” Lord, pray for him.
Kathleen Sebelius, Health and Human Resources Secretary for the President.
Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic, when she was Governor, ran afoul of Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas. The bishop told the governor that she “should stop receiving Communion until she publicly repudiates her support of abortion.”
Naumann: she–and nearly every legal scholar who examined it–believed [it] was unconstitutional.
Sebelius, the governor at that time, said she was “obligated to uphold state and federal laws and the courts. The Archbishop wrote that he was particularly outraged by Sebelius’ veto of an antiabortion bill, which decisions related to abortion.” Naumann said he demanded that she show “a similar sense of obligation to honor divine law.”
Source: Tim Rutten, L.A. Times op-ed May 28, 2008
Sebelius has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and have conducted fundraising activity on her behalf. While Governor, Sebelius vetoed abortion legislation in Kansas in 2003, 2005, 2006, and again in 2008.
Lord, pray for her reconciliation.
St. Thomas Aquinas
Aquinas said at one point that unjust laws were not laws at all … And that one could and even should rebel against them
Lord, pray for us.
The fundamental point, the Pope said, is that the natural law is not the product of human legislation. The principles of natural law, he said, are “norms that precede any human law and as such they cannot be repealed by anyone.” Lord, pray for our Holy Father.
Hilda Solis: US Labor Secretary
Kudos for pro-abortion politician [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. (USCCB) news paints US Labor Sec. Hilda Solis as model Catholic]
California Catholic Daily, Posted on Tuesday, September 06, 2011 by Alex Murphy
The Catholic News Service (CNS), a division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has published a Labor Day paean to US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, a native Californian, presenting her as a paragon of Catholics in political life – but ignoring her record of support for abortion dating back nearly 20 years.
Lord, pray for Hilda Solis and for our Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Solis served in both houses of the California legislature beginning in 1992 before being elected to Congress in 2000. During her time as a state legislator and congresswoman, Solis was an ardent supporter of abortion, winning her a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America and re-election endorsements from Planned Parenthood, as well as the support of the pro-abortion political action committee EMILY’s list. She was named Secretary of Labor by President Obama in 2008 and confirmed by the Senate in 2009. CNS was either unaware or did not care about Solis’ anti-life voting record. Here is how the CNS article presented her: The office of Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis includes images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a glass crucifix and a sculpture of Mary and Jesus. Her Catholic faith, she said, “is a part of my life. My faith is what motivates me.”
The lessons her faith teaches about hope, about helping others, about seeking higher things is something woven into the fabric of her daily life, she said. ‘I do it in a quiet way,’ she said.
During an Aug. 30 telephone interview, Solis spoke about the lessons she learned from her parents, devout Catholics and hard-working immigrants who raised seven children in the Los Angeles area and attended St. Louis of France Parish in La Puente.
Yet, SHE …
Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines.
Voted YES on allowing human embryonic stem cell research.
Voted NO on restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions.
Voted NO on making it a crime to harm a fetus during another crime.
Voted NO on banning partial-birth abortion except to save mother’s life.
Voted NO on forbidding human cloning for reproduction & medical research.
Voted NO on funding for health providers who don’t provide abortion info.
Voted NO on banning Family Planning funding in US aid abroad.
Voted NO on federal crime to harm fetus while committing other crimes.
[She is] recommended by EMILY’s List of pro-choice women.
[She is] rated 100% by Right to Life NARAL, indicating a pro-choice voting record.
Solis co-sponsored expanding contraceptive services for low-income women
Solis co-sponsored for emergency contraception for rape victims
Solis scores 0% by the NRLC on abortion issues
Solis co-sponsored ensuring access to and funding for contraception
Supported funding contraception and UN family planning.
Lord, pray for her reconciliation.
Amanda Simpson Department of Commerce
Obama Appoints Radical Transgender to Department of Commerce
“…as one of the first transgender presidential appointees to the federal government, I hope that I will soon be one of hundreds”
Apparently Obama is secretly planning to saturate the federal government with radical homosexuals, by bowing to the demands of the Homosexual Lobby and appointing the transgender Amanda Simpson to the Department of Commerce.
Having served on the Board of Directors for two national organizations (Out & Equal and National Council for Transgender Equality), both extensions of the Homosexual Lobby, Simpson is an outspoken and clearly radical advocate of the Homosexual Agenda.
Regardless of whether this individual is qualified for the position, Amanda Simpson made it apparent that his/her number one priority is the advancement of the Homosexual Agenda. Something we have been seeing more and more of.
This is hardly Obama’s first indication of his desire to payback the Homosexual Lobby, such as the hiring and subsequent refusal to fire the radical homosexual “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings.
But it serves as a reminder of the real threat out there. . . Barney Frank’s Gay Bill of Special Rights.
If it passes, there will no longer be any sanctuary free of radical homosexuals whose number one mission is to spread their agenda.
And with the Gay Bill of Special Rights at the top of the agenda for 2010 [and beyond], the influence of the Homosexual Lobby will extend past the White House and into our lives.
Every workplace would be forced to adhere to strict regulations regarding the employment of homosexuals, no matter how radical.
Daycares, churches, private schools, businesses, etc…. none would be exempt from forced hiring of radical homosexuals if the Gay Bill of Special Rights passes.
And even firing problem homosexual employees would lead to prosecution.
H.R. 1397 If at all possible, please help fight the Homosexual Lobby, Bill H.R. 1397
12th Congress: 2011-2012 To prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Sponsor: Rep. Barney Frank [D-MA4]
Status: This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Explanation: Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. [Last Updated: Oct 26, 2011 6:14AM]
Mari Camen Aponte, President’s U. S Ambassador to El Salvador
Aponte made her support for gay rights clear in an article that appeared in El Diario de Hoy. The pro-family groups said that her statement was a breach of UN rules that bar diplomats from public involvement in the political affairs of the countries to which they are assigned. Diplomats are also expected to respect the norms of the local culture, the protesters said.

Kevin Jennings ‘Safe-School Czar’ Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education
Jennings is a life-long homosexual activist and had been Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Jennings has designed pro-homosexual curriculum for public schools and has and shown his contempt for God in various writings, referred to Christians as hard-core bigots.
Note: Today’s public schools are serving an anti-Christ agenda, promoting secular humanism and a perverse curriculum that drive youngsters towards sin and perversion, and away from God. Lord, pray for him
The Gospel Message
“When a man lies with another man as with a Woman it is an Abomination” (Leveticus, 18-20)
The background of Leviticus is important to understand. The people are being told not to act like the “pagans”. This is also the format St. Paul uses in his letter to the Romans. “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Lord, pray for our Church.
