ANOTHER WEEK TO KILL THE HATE BILL?
By Rev. Ted Pike
15 Oct 09
was told today by the Senate Armed Services Committee that the
defense authorization bill, with hate bill attached, will not
be considered for final approval in the Senate until "the
end of this week or early next week." The House passed the
defense bill last Thursday.
This means lovers of freedom may have close to another week to repeatedly
email the President demanding he fulfill his promise to veto the defense
bill request for $100 billion in extra spending for thousands of F-35
The entire defense bill is $663 billion, which Obama has criticized
as exorbitant. He says it reflects requirements of the Cold War 30
years ago rather than what is necessary to combat Taliban terrorism
in the Mid-East today.
Encourage Obama NOW that you and thousands of Americans stand behind
him in veto of the defense bill. Demonstrate that our voting power
vastly exceeds that of either ADL, architect of the hate bill, or the
Obama, like every politician, knows every call or email stands for
1000 voters who feel the same way but don't believe they can make a
With healthcare debate still preoccupying the Senate, there is an
excellent chance the defense/hate bill will not reach the President
for another week.
Over the last six days on 18 national interviews I have challenged
millions to email the President. Millions are now aware of his veto
pledge. Thousands have responded. Let's create a last-minute flash
flood of protest and encouragement of Obama in the direction he has
repeatedly said he wants to go -- sending back to Congress what he
calls a bloated, outdated defense bill. Let's encourage him to convey
this message to Congress concerning the hate bill: "Yes, I've
supported the hate bill and promised to sign it but not at the cost
of indenturing the American people to another $100 billion in wasteful
spending. Go ahead and pass the hate bill again but as stand-alone
legislation on its own merits."
Of course, a second passage in Congress would be highly unlikely.
An unpopular Democrat Congress is even now gearing up to make itself
more popular in anticipation of midterm elections next year. The last
thing Democrats want is to again be bombarded with accusations they
want to pass "the pedophile protection act."
Email these messages daily until the hate bill is vetoed:
• Mr. President, I will vote out Democrats at midterms
if you sign the freedom-destroying federal hate crimes bill.
• Mr. President, I expect you to keep your promise to veto any
military authorization bill that wastes $100 billion of taxpayers'
money on unnecessary F-35 jet engines.
Send these two messages in separate emails. You may cut and paste
them in at www.whitehouse.gov/contact.
If for no other reason, taxpayers in a depression economy should demand
veto of an unnecessary $100 billion F-35 engine deal designed to enrich
and make the defense industry happy but not the taxpayers. The Pentagon,
as well as the President, has rejected it as unnecessary. The fact
that the defense bill also contains a hate bill leading directly to
an end of free speech ought to provide double incentive to email the
above messages to Obama immediately.
You don't even have to type them in. Just cut and paste at the above

Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states
with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass
the federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
