The City of Rockwall will host the Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, May 2nd at The Center in Downtown Rockwall at 7:30am, 108 E. Washington in conjunction with the annual National Day of Prayer. Mayors from cities in Rockwall County will be in attendance. The Speaker this year will be Missionary Dub Lewis, and the theme of this year’s event is “Pray for America.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our hometown to come together in prayer for our nation,” said Rockwall Mayor David Sweet. “I think it is particularly important considering the tragic events in West, Texas, Kaufman County, and Boston. No matter what your religious affiliation or beliefs, please join us and pray for America.”   There will be two other opportunities for the community to come together in prayer on May 2:

  • Community Noontime Prayer: 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of Rockwall City Hall, 385 S. Goliad St. Prayers will be offered by pastors and community leaders.
  • Evening Prayer and Worship: 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Harry Myers Park Amphitheatre, 815 E. Washington (East Entrance). Worship and prayer geared to families and youth.

The first Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer in 1775 as did Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Congress established National Day of Prayer as an annual event by joint resolution signed by President Truman in 1952. The law was amended and signed by President Reagan to officially designate the first Thursday in May as the official date.

All that want to pray for our nation are encouraged to do so. The events are not political, but rather meant to encourage people county-wide to join their neighbors in a call to pray for our nation as our national leaders will do in Washington D.C.

There is no charge for the Rockwall Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast but donations will be accepted.

Stacking The Deck – Obama’s Plan to Corrupt Midterm Elections

Stacking the deck

That’s how I characterize Obama’s newest assault on liberty. He is forming “a nine-seat Presidential Commission on Election Administration tasked with recommending changes to states’ election laws by the end of September.”

ACORNs grow into mighty oaks
ACORNs grow into mighty oaks

The evidence of his anti-Constitutional actions forewarns us he is working to ‘stack the deck’ in favor of his fellow community organizers – the Democrats – ahead of midterm elections next fall.

In case you haven’t noticed, this president has been systematically dismantling our republic, transforming it into a democracy. To enlighten readers unfamiliar with our Constitution and our form of government, we are a republic. Casual reading of the Constitution discloses no use of the words ‘democrat’, ‘democratic’ or ‘democracy’.

Obama actively recruits illegal aliens from south of the border by publicly advertising food stamp benefits available to them immediately upon entering this country. Furthermore, by

USDA partnering with Mexico to boost food stamp participation

opposing voter ID laws, and federalizing your precinct elections, he invites fraudulent voters grateful for the ‘freebies’ he offers them.

We must dissuade our duly elected Congressional representatives from accepting his ‘recommendations’.

Here is the Constitutoinal proviso for elections, Article 1, Section 4:

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of Chusing Senators.”

What’s the worst that could happen, you ask. Think “Chicago” where corruption is the rule, not the exception.

Action

Contact all three members of your federal Congressional delegation.

Contact your state Senator and your state legislator.

President Obama seeks to change election regulations in order to favor his party in midterm elections. I want you to oppose any and all changes to state-run elections.

His attorney general refused to uphold election laws and by various means prevented our uniformed military personnel deployed overseas from voting in 2012.

Mr. Obama cannot be trusted.

Robert R.Surgenor Sr, retired police detective, makes the (convincing) case for concealed carry and gun ownership by law abiding citizens. Unlike so many anti gun people he points out the positive aspects. The audio of 911 calls, beginning and end, show a stark and tragic contrast with regard to being defenseless or armed.

Michael Moore – Bowling for Bozos

Filmmaker Michael Moore – remember him? Yeah, he’s the slob who hates America and lauds the Cuban medical care system over our American systems.

You may also know him as the slob whose specious plea, “calm down, white people, and put away your guns” made headlines across most of the country. He wholly opposes your ownership of guns. After all, he reasons, why would you need an AR-15 to hunt deer? Yes, he’s a Hollywood insider liberal who wants all guns confiscated – except guns that are ‘necessary’ for the protection of his elite circle of friends.

Back in 2005 his body guard was arrested at New York’s JFK airport for possession of an unlicensed, unlawful concealed handgun.

Moore’s film “Bowling for Columbine” attacked what Moore calls America’s “culture of fear” and its obsession with guns.

That’s right, the same liberal bunch of Hollywood fruitcakes who deny our natural right to self-defense practice armed self-defense. Among this set of elitist is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

God give us our rights and only God can bestow them on us. Government grants privileges, calling them rights, but they are nothing more than privileges and what government gives, government takes away.

No Natural Rights for No-Names?

In 1971, Attorney Sarah Weddington argued before the U.S. Supreme Court for plaintif  “Jane Roe” in the infamous Roe v. Wade case. Sarah was an ambitious, bright 26 year old attorney who continues to boast of her “success” that she says, “I was very concious of how the fate of many women, for many years, would be resting, in part, on my arguments.” Listen to her complete story (3:34 min) via AOL video link below.

Sarah feels good about her accomplishment. But, what’s the rest of the story?

Her client, “Jane Roe”, Norma McCorvey, never had an abortion. Norma worked in abortion clinics until she had a supernatural encounter with her Creator. You can read Norma’s story in “Won by Love “, available from Amazon.com.

Available from Amazon.com

I was sitting in O.R.’s offices when I noticed a fetal development poster. The progression was so obvious, the eyes were so sweet. It hurt my heart, just looking at them. I ran outside and finally, it dawned on me. ‘Norma’, I said to myself, ‘They’re right’. I had worked with pregnant women for years. I had been through three pregnancies and deliveries myself. I should have known. Yet something in that poster made me lose my breath. I kept seeing the picture of that tiny, 10-week-old embryo, and I said to myself, that’s a baby! It’s as if blinders just fell off my eyes and I suddenly understood the truth — that’s a baby!

I felt crushed under the truth of this realization. I had to face up to the awful reality. Abortion wasn’t about ‘products of conception’. It wasn’t about ‘missed periods’. It was about children being killed in their mother’s wombs. All those years I was wrong. Signing that affidavit, I was wrong. Working in an abortion clinic, I was wrong. No more of this first trimester, second trimester, third trimester stuff. Abortion — at any point — was wrong. It was so clear. Painfully clear.” – Norma McCorvey

I genuinely appreciate Sarah’s concern for pregnant women facing hardship.  Back in the 70’s we knew plaintif’s pseudonym, ‘Jane Roe’, and later her real name, Norma.

The child Norma carried during this trial was her third who was not aborted and was adopted out. All three of her children have names.

Norma became a Christian through the ministry of Operation Rescue leader Flip Benham.

A credible estimate of unborn children lawfully aborted since that infamous 7-2 decision is 55,581,615. Why are these unfortunate, innocent children buried in the news of the day, while the slaughter of 20 innocents in Newtown, CT continue to headline news stories? How are the 55+ million different from the 20? Answer: The Newtown 20 had names.

On ocassion of Christmas 2012,  I think appropriate mentioning two other unborn children who were named before birth: Jesus Christ and John the Baptist.

The moment you learn of a pregnancy, I encourage you to quickly name the child and speak the name to the unborn’s mother.

Clamor for Gun Control – What Are The Facts and What Will Be Your Response?

Left “Gunning” for Your Liberty

Rahm Emanuel infamously said, “Y0u never want a serious crisis to go to waste. It’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before [the crisis].”

The slaughter of 28 persons in Newtown, CT is a made-for-the-leftist crisis/opportunity to do what they thought they could not do beforehand.

News articles of one sort or another decry gun violence in America, disregarding the big picture of death in our vast country.

Examples

  • on average, 2,800 unborn children are murdered in the wombs of their mothers daily
  • 2011 statistics indicate 32,367 deaths from vehicular accidents, a rate of 10.3876/100,000 population
  • 2009 stats record 9,406 deaths by AIDS, a rate of 3.1/100,000 – total infections recorded were 34,247
  • U.S. deaths by firearms in 2011 were 9.0/100,000. How does this compare with other nations? See below chart.

Yes, it’s true a lot of people die from gunfire in our country, yet let’s remember ours is a very, very big country more than 20 times the size of the typical country found throughout the world, leaving out India and China.

Why, pray tell, is the death rate so much lower for countries like Switzerland and Israel? I attribute that to two factors. First, guns are required for certain persons in both cases and, second, they have more homogenous societies. Here, where we have diversity of people groups we have ample opportunity for all manner of things to happen. It’s worth noting that the states with greatest per capita crime are also states that deny or make near impossible concealed-carry permits for self protection.

What Can I Do?

Good question.

First and foremost, educate yourself to the facts. Read your founding documents on a regular basis. There are free on-line resources for this purpose.

Second, contact your Congressional delegation. Tell them to oppose anti-Bill of Rights legislation like arbitrary gun ownership restrictions.

Third, join organizations that work to preserve our God-given natural rights. ACLJ, ADF, Liberty Council, NRA, GOA, TSRA, etc.
