Martin Luther King, Jr. said Star Trek…

Monday, October 26th, 2009





“Dr. King was a Star Trek fan…” Nichelle Nichols (AKA Lt. Uhura)
lt-uhura
People often wonder why Alveda King, a licensed minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, often refers to Star Trek and other “sci-fi” films, movies, television projects, music projects, etcetera to illustrate points. My nephew, Derek Barber King, Jr. launched his television ministry recently, citing the film “The Matrix” to make a point about reality. His text was powerfully presented with scriptures from The Holy Bible, and his Matrix and reality analogy fit in with his message.
Young Derek and I are maybe “chips off the old block.” When I was a little girl, and a teenager, my dad, Rev. A. D. Williams King, often took the family to the movies to see Superman, Hercules, and other fantasy films. My dad was an avid comic book collector. When Star Trek and The Jetsons came out in the mid-1960’s, I remember saying that one day, everything we saw on screen would happen in real life one day. For instance, the Jetsons’ moving sidewalk is in almost every airport nowadays. Captain Kirk’s communicator became a flip cell phone. Lt. Uhura’s earpiece is a Bluetooth, and her communications panel is now a GPS system.
I often cite a classic Star Trek episode in my lectures, the one where a race of beings was in danger of annihilation because of a skin color battle. Acts 17:28 says that we are one blood. That means that we are really one human race. In one of my favorite Star Trek shows, there were two “races” on one planet. They were identical except one group was black on one side and white on one side And the other group was white on one side and black On one side. They fought over eugenics and genocide, with one group trying to totally annihilate the other group.
In yet another Star Trek episode, Captain Kirk led the humans and His arch enemy led his “race.” They were losing to a common enemy until they learned to put their differences aside. There is much to be learned in living together as one race of humans in what my Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., my father, Rev. A. D. King and those in the 20th Century Civil Rights Movement termed “The Beloved Community.”
My Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. also saw the value of Lt. Uhura’s role in terms of race relations. Nichelle Nichols, who gave us the first role of Lt. Uhura on Star Trek, considered quitting Star Trek midway through its first season, when her character had been given little to do beyond perpetually opening hailing frequencies. In one interview, she famously described Uhura as “a glorified telephone operator in space”. Then, at a civil rights protest, she met Martin Luther King Jr. — who told her that he was a big fan of Star Trek. According to Nichols, when she told King she was thinking of quitting the show, he was shocked. “Don’t you know you have the first non-stereotypical role in television?” she recalls King saying. “For the first time the world will see us as we should be seen — people of quality in the future. You created a role with dignity and beauty and grace and intelligence. You’re not just a role model for our children, but for people who don’t look like us to see us for the first time as equals.”
In the more recent release of Star Trek, Lt. Uhura is recognized as a talented, brilliant officer, ranking top of her graduating class. Because Nichelle Nichols took us where no Black woman had gone before, our young women today have a classic role model that has bridged the generation gap in a positive manner.
What does all of this have to do with the prolife movement, my critics ask? Well, people respond to illustrations and anecdotes. It just so happens that Star Trek was part of my reality when I was growing up, so it is not so strange that I can find relevant comparisons to use in my talks.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. The
Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice his children
For immediate personal comfort and safety.” Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr.
How can the dream survive if we murder our children? We must value marriage between one man and one woman, purity in all sexual relationships, procreative reproductive health, and a biblical world view.” Dr. Alveda C. King, Post Abortive Mother, Minister, Activist

Townhall.com on the high road…

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009





Following up on the incident with Townhall.com and Prelutsky, seems like Townhall.com wasn’t in agreement with the types of things Prelutsky was saying, after all… And again, I found Prelutsky’s remarks very offensive to say the least. Alveda

Here’s what Burt Prelutsky wrote in his Townhall.com column –

It’s not just the politicians, but also their mates, so long as they’re Democrats, who get the star treatment. Take Michelle Obama…please. Every time I turn around, there she is on a magazine cover. Now, normally, like the Mafia, I lay off the spouses, but inasmuch as this particular spouse attended the same racist church as her hubby for 20 years, I’ll make an exception in her case. After all, in spite of the fact that affirmative action got her an Ivy League degree and a $7,000-a-week salary and, moreover, has sent billions of dollars for no particularly good reason to Africa, she insists this is a mean country.
Naturally, the left-wing media is now trying to convince us that this James Brown-look-alike has all the allure, glamour and fashion sense of Jackie Kennedy. I have even heard her upper arms described in the sort of language Wordsworth devoted to flowers in the morning dew and that Keats lavished on nightingales. Frankly, if I were Mrs. Obama and the geeks started rhapsodizing about my triceps, I might consider wearing sleeves.
But there’s no getting around the fact that Barack is the bigger menace….

The entire column is available at:

http://townhall.com/columnists/BurtPrelutsky/2009/03/22/let_us_not_praise_famous_men_-_or_women

You’ll notice that the two lines calling Michelle Obama a bad name do not appear. That’s because one was a fabrication and TownHall either censored the other before publishing the Prelutsky column or deleted it after publishing it. Whichever is the case, the offending line is currently not on the TownHall.com website.

If you look at Prelutsky’s original column, which he has posted on his own blog, the above excerpt reads as follows:

It’s not just the politicians, but also their mates, so long as they’re Democrats, who get the star treatment. Take Michelle Obama…please. Every time I turn around, there she is on a magazine cover. Now, normally, like the Mafia, I lay off the spouses, but inasmuch as this particular spouse attended the same racist church as her hubby for 20 years, I’ll make an exception in her case. After all, in spite of the fact that affirmative action got her an Ivy League degree and a $7,000-a-week salary and, moreover, has sent billions of dollars for no particularly good reason to Africa, she insists this is a mean country. The burning question in my circle is: if the First Family gets a female dog, will she be the First Bitch or will she have to settle for second place?

Naturally, the left-wing media is now trying to convince us that this James Brown-look-alike has all the allure, glamour and fashion sense of Jackie Kennedy. I have even heard her upper arms described in the sort of language Wordsworth devoted to flowers in the morning dew and that Keats lavished on nightingales. Frankly, if I were Mrs. Obama and the geeks started rhapsodizing about my triceps, I might consider wearing sleeves.

But there’s no getting around the fact that Barack is the bigger menace….

The above is taken from Prelutsky’s blog of April 16, 2009, available at www.burtprelutsky.com , then going to his blog archive (on the right side of the page) and clicking on April 2009.

We see here that the sentence, “She’s not pretty, for heaven’s sakes! She’s black! She’s a black bitch!” does not appear. This second offensive sentence was apparently made up by someone and added to make it look like it was part of the original column.

A few other points –

1) The author, Burt Prelutsky, is Jewish, not Christian. He’s mentioned his religion in several columns.

2) Burt Prelutsky was terminated by TownHall.com sometime this summer. Prelutsky wrote of his termination in an August 26 column at his new internet home, WorldNetDaily.com. That column is available at http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=107914 He thinks his termination had something to do with a column he wrote about Islam.

3) Whatever one wants to say about Prelutsky, TownHall.com seems to have taken the high ground here. It either deleted the line calling Michelle Obama a bad name from Prelutsky’s column before publishing it or after publishing it. The line is not there now. Prelutsky’s columns were carried at different internet sites last April, TownHall being only one of them. Another site or Prelutsky’s own blog surely carried the offensive lines, but it does not appear that TownHall did. Perhaps the author of the attachment you sent saw the Prelutsky column somewhere and just assumed that TownHall reprinted it in whole.

Subject: RE: Racist statements against Michele Obama & others

There is a lot of buzz about African American voices who disagree with President Obama’s position on abortion and family values. Some are calling us Uncle Toms, and other things. On the other hand, The Obama’s are being called nasty names, and people are wondering where or why the African American “conservatives” are not speaking out about that. Actually, we are saying that insults and name calling by anybody won’t help resolve anything. We are asking people to stop the verbal abuse and deal with the issues. On both sides, on every side. Let’s stop the insults and deal with the issues.
Here are a couple of mails received, and responses:
Mail 1. Dear HU, Thanks for your mail regarding Burt Perlutsky’s Townhall.com column. For the record, it is very wrong and unchristian to call the First Lady a —ch. I am sorry to hear this. I am copying below a response to a recent op-ed that was brought to my attention, along with my response. However, I do not believe it is racist to disagree with the President’s stand on certain issues. For instance, I do not agree with his position regarding the civil rights of unborn babies and the choice to kill them. My position is not racist, in that I also don’t agree with the Speaker of the House and others who share the same views as the President’s. This position has nothing to do with their skin color, but rather their views on personhood. It is wrong, however not to give respect to their respective offices. As to racism, there is one race on the planet, human. We are fighting the racism battle based on the lie that we are separate races. If you check my website for an open letter we wrote to the President, along with a press conference with several African Americans who voted for him, you will see my position on many issues. I also pray for the President and his family, for their well being, and that they will include unborn babies in their representation of the people. www.africanamericanoutreach.com. Alveda King
Mail 2: Dear Mr. Jackson, I read with interest your recent op-ed on Blacks running from race while running in a race. I noted just a few things:
1. I did write that Joe Wilson’s remarks were inappropriate.
2. I did speak out against calling the Obamas monkeys. What a disgrace!
3. Not only do we embrace our heritage, we are fighting to keep the African American community, and indeed generations of all human families from becoming extinct from abortion, sickness, poverty, disease, domestic abuse, etc. Even as far as the Chicago not getting the Olympics thing goes: I believe we should be sad that a boy was recently beat to death in Chicago, and trying to stop the violence of gang murder, and womb murder, and all the violence against our children, maybe even before we worry about gettting the Olympic games in place. The Olympic loss was not cause for celebration, neither is all the violence going on.
4. As to calling these candidates “Uncle Toms” the real history of Uncle Tom was that he was killed for fighting racism in his day. Check out: Thursday, October 1, 2009 America Needs More Uncle Toms! at: http://talkaboutitcd.blogspot.com/
5. Many of us (African Americans for life, liberty and freedom for the babies in the womb, and for healthy procreative lives) are focused on our defund Planned Parenthood population control/genocide/ eugenics agenda outlined in the recently released documentary maafa21 and are working to keep abortion and euthanasia out of the health care bill.) Perhaps you may have time to review our comments on C-Span and youtube at:

Black Republicans Running From Race
October 15, 2009
Raynard Jackson
Black Republicans running for various offices this election cycle seem to be running from race while running their race. This is one of the most asinine things I have ever seen, but not unexpected. This is why Black Republicans have no credibility within their own community.
Last week I was interviewed by Kelley Beaucar Vlahos of FOXNews.com. The story was published this past Monday (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/10/12/carter-obama-allen-west-race-card/ ).
I was appalled at the comments of these Black office seekers and their obvious lack of understanding of how their words would be interpreted by those in the Black community. Allen West, a retired Army colonel running against Democratic Congressman Ron Klein (FL-22nd), said, “Since (Democrats) have thrown out the race card, it has made me more appealing..because it shows the contrast of our principles-how different we are even though we both have permanent tans (referring to President Obama).” West continued, “A lot of people who don’t want to be part of Obama’s policies are being called racist..Then they say, Hey, this guy, Colonel West-he’s Black and I support him.. It has nothing to do with race.People don’t care about your color, they care about your character.”
But, Colonel West, WAIT! You said it was not about race, then you say you’re Black, therefore people in your district are supporting you (because you are Black). Which is it? So, let me make sure I understand you. White people are supporting you because you are Black so that you can speak out against the Black president, so the white people won’t have to (because they can’t call you a racist since you are Black). Oh, I get it now. You know we have a term for people like that and it begins with the word UNCLE!
Ryan Frazier is a 31 year old city councilman in Colorado and is running for the U.S. Senate in the Republican primary. Frazier said that being Black is an asset. So when he opposes the president’s policies, no one can call him a racist. According to Frazier, “I don’t think they will be able to use that argument against me or engage in those tactics against me.” So, let me interpret this. Because of the skin color that you say doesn’t matter, you are able to criticize the president because of the very skin color that you say doesn’t matter? Ok, now I understand.
Michael Williams has served several terms as Texas Railroad Commissioner and is currently running for the U.S. Senate seat that current senator Kay Hutchinson is vacating to run for governor. He states that his Blackness will be an asset. According to the article, “one of the things it allows me to do..it allows me to speak very, very frankly about what I believe, and what I feel, and nobody is going to call me a racist.” Again, I am confused. His Blackness is only an asset when it comes to denigrating a Black president and his policies. According to Williams, other than giving him cover in criticizing the president, his race doesn’t exist. Wow, either he is color blind or just blind to people of color.
Do these guys hear themselves and how ridiculous they sound? Have you ever heard of a Jewish candidate denying or distancing themselves from their own heritage? Or a Latino or Asian? These groups use their ethnicity to endear themselves to voters from their group while at the same time building coalitions to expand their base of support.
Can you be against the president’s policies and not be a racist? Without question. But, I challenge these candidates to answer a few questions for me.
What does describing Obama as a Nazi have to do with healthcare? What does calling him a liar during a joint session of Congress have to do with healthcare? How does calling him a socialist, fascist, or communist, further the healthcare debate? So, you would think that if this debate was about healthcare, the signs at town hall meetings and rallies would read, “how will you pay for your plan, Mr. President, how will it be implemented, or what if I don’t want your plan?” Those would be legitimate questions.
Another question for the candidates, are there any public statements by them speaking out against the actions of Congressman Joe Wilson during the president’s speech before a joint session of Congress?
Are there any public statements by them chastising individuals and party officials for some of the incendiary rhetoric coming from Republicans (Barak the Magic Negro, calling Michelle Obama a monkey, or the celebration by many conservatives that Chicago was eliminated from Olympic consideration)?
Just wondering because I know they all claim to be candidates of great principles and I know they would stand up for right because they are the voice of the people, right?
Finally, can you tell me if you have any Blacks on your paid campaign staffs with hiring or decision making authority? Are you spending any campaign money with Black vendors (office supplies, computer services, restaurants, caterers, etc)? Are there any Black banks in your area that you are utilizing?
I would be stunned if any of the campaigns could answer yes to these questions. But, this is my offer to them. I am offering 30 minutes of air time on my radios how (www.ustalknetwork.com ) to each candidate to address these issues and talk about their campaigns.
So, while you are running your race, please don’t continue to forget your race!

http://blackpoliticsontheweb.com/2009/10/15/interracial-couple-denied-marriage-license-in-la/ : can you believe it? The big lie is “interracial” we are all just one, albeit it sometimes ethnically blended race, after all, HUMAN!

Friday, October 16th, 2009





An extreme of this judge’s attitude is aborting a “mixed” baby because of the challenges the baby would face growing up with parents of differing ethnicities. I wonder what this judge would think of the proposed PreNDA (Prenatal nondiscrimination) ACT? This my race/your race thing keeps up a lot of confusion. Acts 17:28 teaches us that we are all one human race, of “one blood.” the enemy (the father of lies) keeps us thinking that one “race” is different from another “race” so we get eugenics, genocide, population control, etc. There is no such thing as a “mixed” baby. We may mix or blend ethnicity, but not race. What we should be doing is calling all of this what it is, mixed up and messed up. Let’s discover, the truth together… We are one race, no matter if we are pink (what some call white, though there is no such thing as white skin, after all–though albino complexions come close), brown (in all varations), red, yellow and magenta and purple near ebony hue (which some people call black).

Interracial couple denied marriage license in La.
October 15, 2009 · Print This Article

A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have.

Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.

“I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house,” Bardwell said. “My main concern is for the children.”

Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

“I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.”

If he does an interracial marriage for one couple, he must do the same for all, he said.

“I try to treat everyone equally,” he said.

Thirty-year-old Beth Humphrey and 32-year-old Terence McKay, both of Hammond, say they will consult the U.S. Justice Department about filing a discrimination complaint.

Humphrey told the newspaper she called Bardwell on Oct. 6 to inquire about getting a marriage license signed. She says Bardwell’s wife told her that Bardwell will not sign marriage licenses for interracial couples.

“It is really astonishing and disappointing to see this come up in 2009,” said American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana attorney Katie Schwartzman. “The Supreme Court ruled as far back as 1963 that the government cannot tell people who they can and cannot marry.”

The ACLU was preparing a letter for the Louisiana Supreme Court, which oversees the state justices of the peace, asking them to investigate Bardwell and see if they can remove him from office, Schwartzman said.

“He knew he was breaking the law, but continued to do it,” Schwartzman said.

According to the clerk of court’s office, application for a marriage license must be made three days before the ceremony because there is a 72-hour waiting period. The applicants are asked if they have previously been married. If so, they must show how the marriage ended, such as divorce.

Other than that, all they need is a birth certificate and Social Security card.

The license fee is $35, and the license must be signed by a Louisiana minister, justice of the peace or judge. The original is returned to the clerk’s office.

Black Republicans Running From Race

The weapons of our warfare: Discerning the times in the midst of new “supernatural” movies and stuff

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009





"Star Wars" Lasar swords are mystical force weapons. Even more so is the case for Heaven's arsenol
But remember, our weapons are not carnal like this

But remember, our weapons are not carnal like this

What does “Drag Me to Hell” or the upcoming television show “V”, or the soon to be released movie “Legions” have to do with prolife? Well, like it or not, the movie industry, and film, music and television, radio and the internet shape our consciousness. Even if you don’t have a TV and don’t go to movies, someone you know does. It has even been said that the “Media” is the fourth branch of government, impacting policy and the very quality of our lives.

Having said all of this, I remember a prophetic friend of mine said last summer, that there would be a new flood of sci-fi and occult genre films and music that would prepare people for an onslaught of the supernatural. It is happening. Of course, in the very old days, we had Dracula, Frankenstien and the like. Then the Exorcist, Damian, Rosemary’s Baby, etc. Now, there are so many vampire movies that we can’t count them. And the latest promise even more seduction to the dark side (“Star Wars” with Yoda, Skywalker and Vadar.)

So, what does all of this have to do with the sanctity of life? All of these projects have some element of truth. People perish for lack of knowledge… In 2 Corinthians 10:2-5, the Apostle Paul taught us that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, like with earthy swords and shields and the like: “but when I come I may have to be very bold with those who think we act from purely human motives. 3 We are human, but we don’t wage war with human plans and methods. 4 We use God’s mighty weapons, not mere worldly weapons, to knock down the Devil’s strongholds. 5 With these weapons we break down every proud argument that keeps people from knowing God. With these weapons we conquer their rebellious ideas, and we teach them to obey Christ.”

So like the Bible says, we have to become bold and skillful with using Heaven’s weapons. Like those in Ephesians chapter six.

And, by the way, we have to change our spiritual diets, and be nurtured and nourished by the Fruit of the Spirit! Galatians 5:22 But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control.

So, a good spiritual regimen is needful! Now, what do spiritual weapons “look” like? Well, in the first place, we can’t see them with human eyes. We can’t wield them with human hands and bodies. The closest thing we can even compare them to in our finite minds, may be like the Star Wars laser swords, which are mystical in that they use “force” and “light” for power. Even more so, we have to use faith and spiritual senses with the weapons of Ephesians 6: 10 A final word: Be strong with the Lord’s mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. 12 For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms. 13 Use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that you will be fully prepared. In every battle you will need faith as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 Pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Christians everywhere.

So now, here’s the fit with the prolife message. Today, there are so many distractions, so much to pull us off our spiritual focus. So fight the battle Read the Bible and learn GOD’s spiritual warfare! I could hate the director of the local Planned Parenthood office, or I could pray for that person, that GOD would change his or her heart. I could attack my friends who are in a different political party, or I could pray that they would become beacons of light in their own party. I could sneer at those who think condoms are the answers to society’s problem, or I could lovingly take time to show them the more excellent way of delayed gratification. Only love can conquer hate, after all!

Until next time, may the Force (Of Heaven) be with you!

Ignorance is not bliss… Nobel Peace Prize tied to eugenics

Monday, October 12th, 2009





Okay, some people will think I’m sowing sour grapes about the Nobel Peace Prize Award. Others will be just as amazed as I am, to discover that the “prestigious” award is linked to eugenics. Now remember, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the second Negro in America to receive the award, preceeded by Ralph Bunch. Two years later, Dr. King received the Planned Parenthood “Maggie Award.” This award is part of PPH’s strategy to cultivate social pro-eugenics and racist sympathy through awards and sometimes even monetary grants. The euguenics tactics are covert and clever, after all.

My Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and hundreds of other Black pastors and leaders have been tricked and mislead that Planned Parenthood wants to help Black people. Planned Parenthood lied to me that my aborted baby was a blob of tissue, and that the chemical birth control pills that made me sick were good for my health. They lied to my uncle, that the award was for helping to build strong Negro communities.
People use awards to further their causes, including it now seems, the Nobel Prize Award is linked to eugenics.

Other eugenics laced profiles linked to the Nobel Peace Prize can be found at:
Eugenics, Racism, and Nobel Prizes in America at this link:

http://saynsumthn.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/eugenics-racism-in-america-past-and-present/

How about this report from NJ… They get it!
Planned Parenthood had been asked to speak at a housing site in Newark. A local pastor objected to their board. Planned Parenthood was ‘disinvited’. I (the author of this report, not Alveda) was asked to speak. A person ‘who asked to remain nameless’ threatened our invitor with a protest of our talk. The talk now became an open community meeting.

We went there fully expecting a vocal opposition to a simple discussion of HIV, chastity and the work of Gateway. A pastor who invited Gateway was to speak after me. She intended to hand out condoms after her talk.

This pastor urged me not to mention Planned Parenthood and not to hand out any literature. Since my talk involved HIV and didn’t mention Planned Parenthood, I complied to not mentioning Planned Parenthood in my talk on HIv and condom faiilure. I brought literature packets with me that presented the ministry but also exposed Planned Parenthoods racist beginnings.(Proofs from the library of Congress by our dear friend Akua Furlow)

In our telephone conversation concerning Fridays banquet, our latest dear friend, Dr. Alveda King prayed for God’s intervention… and He surely did.All praise to Him for the outcome!

Planned Parenthood never showed up. The residents that came were vocal about abstaining. I spoke for an hour using Powerpoint, proving every quote with it’s source. The pastor frequently interrupted to correct me even though the proof studies were visable on the powerpoint. She then rose to speak.

After some vocal responses from the residents, her talk disintergrated into an encouragement of chasty as ‘one of the best options’. One resident interupted her twice saying, “The only option”.

He stated, “I’m a 40 year old man. They’ve been telling me this (the safe sex message) for all my life. The only was is to abstain”

(Praise God)

Thank you for praying.

“It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.”
Psalm 118:8

Stay Focused: Who gets it today?

Friday, October 9th, 2009





Please forgive the back to back blogs: Two reports just came in, right after I posted the blog about not being distracted by the new Nobel Peace Prize award. Day Gardner and Eddie Lee Huff really get the message!

Eddie Lee Huff reminds us that our battle is not with flesh and blood. Please take time to review this short message!

Then, Day Gardner shared a great report. Please, stay alert and mindful of who the enemy really is!
FYI from Day Gardner over at National Black Prolife Union
Just FYI…
I spoke at Howard University last night. Part of a three person panel which included NARAL. It was hosted by a sorority and went very well. Really good turn out–a lot of good response. It will be interesting seeing how it is reviewed, (if it is reviewed) in their newspaper.

Besides all the statistics that I usually spout and defunding PP…GOD moved me to inform the audience about a conversation I had with Dr. Bernard Nathanson who founded NARAL. I mentioned that Dr. Nathanson admitted to out and out lying about large numbers of back alley abortions. He said he just threw a huge number out there with no supporting information because he knew that no one would bother to research or check the numbers. I mentioned that he informed me about the millions of dollars made by the selling of baby body parts AND that he is now staunchly pro-life! I even plugged his movie Silent Scream!

GOD also moved me to talk about Jesse Jackson selling his soul to get abortion industry dollars to fund his presidential campaign.

I had no idea that Erica West (?) intended to talk about “political campaigns” in her remarks. So, GOD took the wind right out of her sails with remarks about NARAL’s founder and political campaigns from the very beginning. She kind of babbled on after that. OUR GOD is AWESOME!!!

Unfortunately, I was not allowed to show the Maafa trailer as I had hoped. At first they said yes–and then came back with a story that the “N” word was in the trailer somewhere and might offend some students. (ugh!…the audienced of about 80-100 people were black, except for two whites–I think we’ve heard the word a few times before, anyway they pulled it about two hours from ‘go’ time).

Hey, Day. the “N” word is a derivative of “Niger” in Africa, where we were once kings, queens and royalty before we were sold off by our brothers and sisters of a different religious mindset, and became slaves to “white” slave masters in Europe, the islands and America.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops get it, again…
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops wrote to all Members of Congress on Thursday stating once again that they will “vigorously” oppose health care reform legislation unless it excludes mandated abortion coverage, prohibits abortion funding, and protects conscience rights. The letter said that no current bill “meets this test.”

Link to letter: http://www.usccb.org/sdwp/national/2009-10-08-healthcare-letter-congress.pdf

Georgia didn’t get it today (people who murder babies have a lot of rage, not just on the road): Georgia abortionist Daniel McBrayer, 58, was arrested on a battery charge after punching a woman in the face during a road rage incident. McBrayer previously ran afoul of the law by performing second-trimester abortions in his office instead of a hospital and by failing to report abortions he had performed.

Don’t be distracted! Jude 1:22 – Rebuke some who are disputing–Stunning Nobel Peace Prize Award to President Obama:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/eu_nobel_peace

Friday, October 9th, 2009





In light of the newest addition to the ranks of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, I find myself in need of praying and considering the times. In the Complete Jewish Bible, in Jude 1:22 it reads: Rebuke some who are disputing. So, rather than spending the whole day blogging and opinion saturating, I’ll just say this: Nothing happens without a reason. We need to pray for those in authority so that we can have peaceful lives (1 Timothy 2:2) so that we can have peaceful lives.
It is very important that we not be distracted by this development, and get off track from the issues with say, Health Care Reform. We must stay focused. No amount of praise or criticism will change the fact that President Obama now holds a Nobel Peace Prize. We can’t do anything about that. We can continue to contact Congress and insist that abortion and euthanasia are not in any health care bill.
I’ve been meaning to suggest that prevention of things like childhood obesity, high blood pressure, sugar diabeties should also be in any genuine health care plan. Women’s and men’s procreative health is also key!
FYI

Nobel Peace Prize
Scholar and diplomat Ralph J. Bunche became, in 1950, the first African American to win a Nobel Peace Prize. Bunche received the award for his role as the architect of United Nations (UN) peacekeeping efforts and for having negotiated the four armistice agreements that halted the Arab-Israeli War of 1948. In 1955 Bunche was named the UN’s Undersecretary for Special Political Affairs; in that capacity he oversaw UN peacekeeping operations in some of the most heated conflicts around the world. United States President John F. Kennedy awarded Bunche the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom, in 1963.
My Uncle was the next Black Nobel Peace Prize Recipient in 1964. My Dad, Grandparents and Aunt were there to witness the ceremony.
I was reading my Complete Jewish Bible translation today, and in Jude 1:22 it reads thusly: “Rebuke some who are disputing.”

This is not the time to take a lot of time and buzz about something that has already happened. Let’s spend our time dealing with Life, Liberty and Freedom!

Who gets it, and Who doesn’t? (When will America realize that abortion breeds more murder? Ask Chicago, ask Florida, ask California. When does abortion become murder? When can we link abortion to the rash of violence and murder sweeping our nation?)

Thursday, October 8th, 2009





Okay, I’m about to admit that I read the gossip columns sometimes. You know, the ones that ask: “Who wore it best?” Well, I have a question: “Who gets it and who doesn’t?”

Chicago City Council doesn’t get it yet: When you devalue life, there are long and far reaching consequences. Abort babies, and people start aborting older people, like in gang violence. In Chicago, they bury a young man tragically murdered in gang violence, and pass a law to allow enablement of more babies to be murdered by abortion: The Chicago City Council approved by a 28-13 vote a bubble zone ordinance that forbids anyone within 50 feet of an abortion clinic entrance to come within eight feet of anyone seeking to enter the clinic.

Link: http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2009/10/considerable-activity-is-expected-inside.html

OHMYGOSH!: The ACLU gets it?????!!! The ACLU has joined pro-lifers in opposing the proposed “abortion clinic bubble zone” law to be voted upon today by the Chicago City Council. The liberal group issued a statement urging the Council to “honor the Constitution and tolerate the widest amount of free speech in public ways.”
Link: http://lifenews.com/state4481.html

Florida abortin providers don’t get it yet:
http://media.nbcmiami.com/designvideo/rcpHolder9-15.swf?path=/home/top_stories&id=63663637
The Florida non-physician abortion clinic owner who allegedly hid a born alive child in a plastic bag for a week, will have a hearing this Friday on charges of unlicensed health care and evidence tampering. The minister who presided at the baby girl’s funeral is calling for a murder charge, but police say they don’t have the evidence to support it.

Link: http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local-beat/Critics-Demand-Murder-Charge-in-Botched-Abortion-63663272.html

This Florida update was provided by Dr. Johnny Hunter of LEARN, and they get it!

California abortion clinics don’t get it yet: Operation Rescue reports three instances in the last three weeks of ambulances taking women from Southern California Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. One sidewalk counselor on the scene took a picture of one of the ambulances, had flyers printed up with the photo, and now hands the flyers to approaching women, resulting in at least one woman not entering the clinic. OR is now urging sidewalk counselors to carry cameras to document any future emergency situations.

Link: http://www.christiannewswire.com/news/1900711763.html

Ask any reasonable person, even a child, and lately, more and more, people are admitting that abortion is murder. Period. The ongoing case/investigation of Baby Shanice is proof that the truth is coming to life. Little babies are people, and they are being murdered in abortion clinics. BTW (By the way) some more women have been rushed from the abortion clinic to the hospital, and the media isn’t saying too much about it. Keep praying, friends.

Ohio Right to Life gets it!
A new poll commissioned by Ohio Right to Life finds that 52% of Ohioans oppose abortion, 57% believe abortion has a negative effect on women, and 72% oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.

Link: http://www.ohiolife.org/assets/attachments/file/October%202009%20OCI%20Press%20Release(1).pdf
Truly, Planned Parenthood never gets it.
STOPP gets it!
Jim Sedlak of STOPP Planned Parenthood reports that Planned Parenthood has used minor girls as young as 13 in government funded clinical trials involving birth control pills, abortion, and “emergency contraception.” Ten of 30 Planned Parenthood clinical trials surveyed by Sedlak involved under aged girls.
