OBAMA DIDN'T PROMISE TO SIGN DEFENSE/HATE BILL
By Rev. Ted Pike

Homosexual online newspaper The Washington Blade is
spreading the rumor that the Presiden has communicated that he will sign
the defense/hate crimes bill. The Blade says, “President
Obama intends to sign into law Wednesday a long-sought hate crimes
protection measure as part of a major defense bill, according to an
administration source.” ("Obama
to sign hate crimes bill Wednesday" in The Washington
Who is this unnamed source? This afternoon I called the office of those with
the highest stake in passing the defense authorization bill—the Senate
Armed Services Committee (Democrat). I wanted to see if they heard any leaks
from the White House about the President’s intentions. Their spokesperson
said, “We have received no indication which way the President will decide.”
Yes, Obama has said—as recently as the Human Rights Campaign banquet several
weeks ago—that he will sign a federal hate crimes bill. But he has repeatedly
made clear he will not sign the defense authorization bill (to which
the hate bill is attached) if it’s loaded with $100 billion of military “pork” for
thousands of F-35 jet engines. Defying him two weeks ago, Congress added the
extra engines. There is thus a viable chance Obama will keep his word, teaching
the upstart Democrat Congress who sets the legislative agenda.
The homosexual lobby, Anti-Defamation League and liberal media are announcing
Obama’s signing of the hate bill as almost a fact for strategic reasons.
First, they want to make it harder for Obama to disappoint the political left,
especially the homosexual and Jewish communities who now rejoice in the “virtual
reality” of their hate law dream. Second, they want to drain the fighting
spirit out of those who might continue to email Obama. After all, if the President
has recently sworn to sign the defense/hate bill, why bother to demand that he
The fact is that no credible message has come from the administration
concerning the President’s state of mind. The spokesperson for the Senate
Armed Services Committee told me they hope the President will pass these bills,
yet the committee remains ignorant of his ultimate choice. Of one thing
this source was sure: “If the President does veto the defense bill, it
will be a huge setback for the committee.”
Don’t let up on emailing Obama! Send these three messages in
separate emails to Obama immediately, through the White House contact page, www.whitehouse.gov/contact.
You may copy and paste them into the message section at that website.
- Mr. President, I will vote out Democrats at mid-terms
if you sign the freedom-destroying hate crimes bill.
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
- Mr. President, I will never forgive or forget
if you sign away America's sovereignty at the Copenhagen conference
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.
