Day 26 -- Congress is lost

As the federal takeover of the auto industry marches forward, one branch of the federal government is totally clueless. The President is dictating the takeover through his non-elected task force...

Day 27 -- Praying for the Senate Today

Today the US Senate Commerce Committee will hold a hearing with the CEO's of Chrysler and GM. My prayer is that someone on that committee will find the courage to ask the tough questions on why ...

Day 28 - Senate Show Trial

It was sad and funny at the same time. The US Senate Commerce Committee sitting on high with the lowly car people at the witness bench. The table was quite uncomfortable. The CEO's of Chrysler a...

Day 29 -- Hurry, Hurry, Hurry, Stop

Why are Congress and the Administration always in such a hurry? We had to hurry and pass a trillion dollar stimulus. We had hurry and rush through the auto industry bankruptcy, we are told we mu...

Day 30 -- For This

D-Day 2009. Together we are praying for the US Congress and for the nation. I met with a dear relative tonight and we spoke about our fathers who fought along with our uncles in WW II. We had to...

Day 31 -- Will Steny Hoyer Deliver?

The prayers for Congress continue. Prayers that somewhere, somehow, some members of Congress will begin to stand up for the principles of the Declaration and Constitution. There is a strong rumo...

Day 32 -- Chrysler Deal Cracking in Congress and Courts?

Could it be that the truth has finally caught up with the President's Auto Task Force and Chrysler? The Supreme Court has stayed the Bankruptcy Court's ruling and the sale to FIAT is now on temp...

Day 33 -- Cash for Clunkers

In Congress today they passed one more government give away plan called "cash for clunkers". If you buy a car and trade-in one that gets lower MPG then you get a federal rebate. Of cou...

Day 34 -- The Real Threat Beginning to Appear

Ted Kennedy finally let his healthcare "outline" out of the cave. It crawled out at 650 pages and will likely double in size soon. At least we now have something from Congress that res...

Day 35 -- Political Show or Real Deal?

We have been praying for Congress. We are praying for the members today. Hopefully, after 35 days this is a habit that won't disappear. Tomorrow a hearing will be held in a House Subcommittee. M...

Day 36 -- Will Congress Act Upon the Truth?

Day 37 -- What If They Are Bluffing?

Praying for Congress today and a thought popped into my mind. What if they are bluffing? What if they intend to hold a few hearings, let the car dealers tell their sad, sad stories, grill the CE...

Day 38 -- Healthcare Rationing Begins

Is anyone listening? Does anyone see? The President is calling for rationing healthcare to the poor and the aged -- right now! He is not waiting for Congress to pass a plan. He is not interested...

The 40 Days Continues

The 40 days of prayer for Congress is now over. I still prayed for them today. I pray the habit sticks and I will try to do all I can to maintain the spiritual discipline to pray for those in au...

The President's Money Machine

I hope you will read this email from President Obama. Has there ever been a time in American history where a seated President has run such a full-scale fundraising scheme? The President and his ...

The Lawbreaking Continues

Evidently the lawlessness now dominating the federal government is working its way to the states. In Ohio Governor Ted Strickland has reversed his position on casino gambling. Strickland activel...

Another Congressional Disaster

1300 pages. No one had time to read it. The bill will raise taxes and costs for all Americans. Thousands of Americans will lose their jobs. The entire premise is based upon the intellectual supe...

The Republicans Who Passed Cap and Trade
