By Rev. Ted Pike
23 July 09

President Obama has repeatedly made clear that he supports the federal hate crimes bill and will sign it into law. Yet, like probably every Democrat who voted for it, he knows that S. 909 is legislative garbage. It is blatantly unconstitutional, intended by ADL and the Democratic one-worlders in Congress as a means to exponentially increase federal control of American society.  It is meant to eventually expand to international dominion over our thoughts and words.

There is, however, one thing Obama feels very strongly about and is willing to fight to defend: his reputation and political agenda.

With this in mind, we should realize that his repeated promises to veto an arms/hate bill package that includes 7 to 12 extra F-22 Raptors is not an idle threat. Obama and the highest military strategists who surround him want to develop the more modern and versatile, faster F-35 fighter. They want the $1.75 billion that the House authorized for more Raptors invested in F-35s.

Obama has said he is willing to fight over this one. This is his first veto threat to a sometimes unruly, Democrat-controlled Congress. At stake is not only national defense but also Obama's reputation. By dramatizing control of excessive military spending, he is making a post-bailout statement to economically hard hit Americans that, although a liberal, he:

1.    Is determined to be frugal with taxpayers’ money;
2.    Cares deeply about protecting America militarily; and
3.    Is not the servant of the arms industry.

How do we kill the hate bill, now attached inextricably to the arms bill? Simple, join with the super-powerful defense contracting lobby and workers in 44 states to influence House and Senate conferees in September to create a final Department of Defense Authorization bill loaded with Raptors – a bill in defiance of the President’s wishes; a bill as offensive to him as possible!

Hope Fades in the Senate

Yesterday, Senate Republicans hoped to inflame the liberals and slow down or stop forward movement of the DOD/hate crimes package by attaching the pro-gun rights Thune amendment. It failed.

With soon passage of the final version of the DOD bill, there is, apart from the strategy I propose, no way I know to keep the hate bill from barreling forward to conference in September.

But with God's help and yours, I believe we have one more opportunity to avoid going under the jackboot of a federal hate crimes gestapo, eventually ending free speech and freedom to proclaim the Gospel.

Will you join with me, as the people did with Gideon and with Deborah, to fight by faith with God against seemingly insurmountable odds – to gain possible victory?

I believe the Word of God, Jesus, is giving us the word now to pursue this way of escape with everything we have.

In this last week before summer recess, start calling both Senate and House members with this message: “Please encourage conferees in September to include all 12 F-22 Raptors in the Defense Authorization bill.”

Call 1-877-851-6437 toll free or 1-202-225-3121 toll. The names of all members of the House and Senate are
located HERE at www.truthtellers.org. As soon as conferees are chosen in September, I will alert you and post their names at www.truthtellers.org.

Also, begin contacting the White House with this message: “Mr. President, we expect you to honor your promise to veto a defense bill that includes extra F-22 fighters.” (Comments line: 202-456-1111; fax: 202-456-2461.)

Call repeatedly until Congress disbands in early August. Then continue calling to the state offices of members of Congress, as well as the White House. (Your local library will cheerfully tell you who your members of Congress are and contact information for their state offices, and this information is readily available on the internet.)

If God wants the hate bill killed, and we do our part, He is going to do it!
