NOM National Newsletter February 3, 2011

So much is happening — in Rhode Island, Maryland, Wyoming, and even New Mexico, where a bill to block recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriage was introduced. To see and hear our new Rhode Island radio ad click here! But the heart of the marriage debate this week moved to Iowa. The Iowa House voted overwhelmingly (62 to 37!) to refer the question of marriage to the people of Iowa — to give Iowa citizens the right to decide whether or not homosexual marriage should be part of Iowa's constitution. And also this week, over in the Iowa Senate one man — one man, vowed to stand between Iowans and the voting booth! Senate majority leader Mike Gronstal (D-Council Bluffs).

Gronstal vows to prevent a vote on a marriage amendment because he says it's not about him: "It's about a significant portion of the citizens of this state that some people say shouldn't have the same rights that everybody else does," he said. In other words, it's about you: You will vote wrong because of your wrong values, your ugly motives, your illegitimate vision for marriage. It's rare for an elected official to describe (even implicitly) the citizens of his own state in such dark terms. Source: Brian S. Brown, President, National Organization for Marriage

This will really frustrate liberals and a few RINOs too, probably!

Tea Party Express has been working hard to be an unstoppable force in Washington, and to build upon the incredible momentum & tea party movement already has going for it. The Tea Party Express will host a first-ever "Tea Party Town Hall." But we have to do much more than holding our leaders in D.C. accountable. We have to get more people elected who will respect the will of the American people and the tea party movement. The Tea Party Express is about to launch their latest "Target List" for the upcoming Congressional elections. We must add more tea party supporters to both the House and Senate and we can only do this with your help and support. We need to build a massive war chest to win more campaigns for constitutional conservatives. Please help us with a contribution. Source:

A U.S. Representative From YOUR State Promised To Stop Birthright Citizenship But Hasn't Tried

Thanks to all of you who sent faxes from your Action Board the last 24 hours. And thanks to all of you who have been phoning the offices of U.S. Representatives, urging them to immediately sign onto , H.R. 140 introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) a full month ago. H.R. 140 would stop the practice of giving U.S. citizenship when both parents are illegal aliens or foreign tourists.

8 Million Illegal Aliens Still in U.S. Jobs

All federal and state enforcement efforts against illegal immigration the last year failed to reduce the number of illegal aliens holding U.S. jobs and keeping unemployed Americans from having them, according to a Pew Hispanic Center study released this week. In the few states that have seriously implemented their own mandatory E-Verify laws, the number of illegal aliens has declined. But the annual count of illegal aliens by Pew indicated that the illegal foreign workers are mainly moving to lax-enforcement states and taking jobs there. Thus, the number of jobs held nationally by illegal aliens remained steady at 8 million. The answer, of course, is to make E-Verify mandatory nationally (through Congress) or greatly increase the number of states doing so. But time is running out in several states as their short legislature session head to a close for the year. Source: Numbers-USA

Don't allow Congress to forget about FCC power-grab

The Federal Communications Commission bypassed government regulations and seized control of the Internet, delivering what many believe is a knockout blow to one of the last, great free-market frontiers our nation and the world has ever seen. Earlier this week, communications giant Verizon was the first to file suit against the FCC, challenging their 'Net Neutrality ruling and alleging that the FCC has overstepped its bounds. Regardless of the legal challenges, right now the FCC has license to regulate the Internet and is already threatening to stifle the $30 billion annually that investors pour into Internet development and advancement and hundreds of thousands of jobs.

But as bad as that all sounds, the Heritage Foundation suggests that's just the tip of the iceberg as the FCC would inevitably be drawn into debates regarding Web content! Radically increased government control, a loss of free-market investment opportunities, monumental job loss, and a further eroding of Free Speech rights, could be in store for Americans if citizens don't make this a key issue on Capitol Hill. Together we must work to keep the issue on radar-screens throughout Capitol Hill. But your help is badly needed to take a stand right now by clicking here. Source: Grass Fire Nation.

Obama and Imam Rauf Connection?

In previous reports researched by the Walid Shoebat Foundation, it was revealed that Imam Rauf has made statements in the Arabic language while appearing on Arabic media outlets that completely contradict his moderate tone when speaking English, exposing him as a direct supporter of terrorism, both financially and verbally.

Stay permanently active in politics. Do not lose all the ground and let the socialist/communist back in control of Congress. Be vigilant, do not be arrogant, be humble. Pray for God's help of good against evil. We must ask God's mercy and repent of our sins. God will not deny his mercy. The greater the sinner, the more right you have to his mercy. God is not a liar. Trust in his mercy. That pleasing God the most. Amen.
