The Daily Brief

1. Obama and the Constitution - Religious Freedom Coalition

The Obama Administration has announced that it will begin to enforce a law that was rejected by Congress. Rather than enforce current immigration law, the Justice and Homeland Security Departments will drop deportation proceedings against illegals who have not committed "major" crimes. They will then be given a path to stay in the United States legally despite federal laws to the contrary. This will become a true Constitutional crisis, as States will file lawsuits to stop the illegal actions of the Administration.

- Father, we plead for mercy, O God! Stop the madness, and direct refusal to abide by federal laws and the Congress regarding this matter of immigration. Congress rejected this law that is now being enforced. We ask that the laws be faithfully executed by this administration, and that the oath a President takes before taking office which is: To preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.

- A wicked man receives a bribe out of the bosom(pocket) to pervert the ways of justice. The king by justice establishes the land, but he who exacts gifts and tribute overthrows it. (Proverbs 17:23,29:4)

2. Peter King Finds New 9/11 Link - Religious Freedom Coalition

Congressman Peter King (R-NY), in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, said investigators believe it is no coincidence that Anwar al-Awlaki had contact with three of the five hijackers who flew a plane into the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001. The House Homeland Security Committee is investigating to determine "to what extent Anwar al-Awlaki wittingly or unwittingly facilitated the plot of the 9/11 hijackers." After the attacks, Al-Awlaki was invited to speak at a Pentagon lunch and was also invited by Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to speak on Capitol Hill. Al-Awlaki also encouraged the attack by Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood.

- Father, we pray that investigators will uncover all involvement of Anwar al-Awlaki. To know that he spoke at the Pentagon and Capitol Hill is an outrage. Help us to know our enemies who come to us in sheep's clothing.

- Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inwardly they are devouring wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

3. Teacher of the Year Suspended - Religious Freedom Coalition

Mount Dora, FL - Jerry Buell, last year's "Teacher of the Year" at Mount Dora High School, has been suspended from the classroom for a comment he made on his own personal Facebook page, expressing his disapproval of legalized same-sex marriage in New York. School officials received a complaint about Buell's comment on Tuesday from a 2002 Mount Dora graduate who was never even in Mr. Buell's class. The Lake County School District responded by taking away Buell's teaching privileges and reassigning him to administrative duties. Liberty Counsel is representing Buell and demanding that he be immediately reinstated with an apology for violating his First Amendment rights.

- Father, we pray for Mr. Buell, and that his First Amendment rights be upheld. What is happening to our country when we are suppressed from speaking what we believe? Doesn't the opposition speak with no penalty? Help Mr. Buell stand strong under this persecution.

- My God has sent his angel and has shut the lions' mouths so that they have not hurt me. (Daniel 6:22)

4. Social Security Disability on Verge of Insolvency - AP

Laid-off workers and aging baby boomers are flooding Social Security's disability program with benefit claims, pushing the financially strapped system toward the brink of insolvency. Applications are up nearly 50 percent over a decade ago as people with disabilities lose their jobs and can't find new ones in an economy that has shed nearly 7 million jobs.

- Jehovah Jireh, the Lord our Provider, thank you for assisting the many people of our land who are suffering. Bring jobs to them and financial relief. We pray for prosperous businesses, and business men in the private sector to provide wisdom and strategy regarding this crisis.

- So Abraham called the name of that place, The Lord Will Provide. And it is said to this day, On the mount of the Lord it will be provided. (Genesis 22:14)

The Middle East in Focus

This week, for all the headlines cited below, please join us in proclaiming THIS DECREE:

"I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land." (Joel 3:2)

1. US lawmaker: Aid to Egypt depends on peace with Israel - Jerusalem Post

Washington's $2 billion in annual aid to Egypt will be cut off if Cairo backs out of the peace treaty with Israel, Congresswoman Kay Granger -- whose job as chairwoman of the US House appropriations foreign operations subcommittee means she literally writes America's annual foreign aid bill -- told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

2. Egypt diplomat: Cairo will not withdraw ambassador to Israel - Haaretz

Cairo withdraws threat to bring home envoy in protest of the killing of five Egyptian security personnel, placing the blame on Israel.

3. 'Iranian confesses to aiding Mossad in assassination of nuclear scientist' - Haaretz

Majid Jamali-Fashi pleads guilty to charges that he killed an Iranian physicist in 2010, in what Tehran said was an attempt by Israel and the U.S. to derail its nuclear program, according to state television.

4. Resentment toward Hamas grows among Gaza's budding middle class - Haaretz

While two-thirds of Gaza's 1.6 million people live in poverty and rely on UN food aid, a growing middle class fuels grass roots opposition to Hamas rule.

The Daily Jot

The contemporary American crucible

The man who occupies the Oval Office has spent nearly a billion dollars of your money to establish a radical Islamic state governed by Sharia law in Libya--that's $896 million through July 31 with the promise of another $25 million in aid to the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood supported Libyan Transitional National Council which will establish Libya as an Islamic state once dictator Moammar Qadhafi is finally ousted. The promise was that no US ground troops would be used to overthrow Qadhafi, but US air and naval support was key in the overthrow. All this money and lives were spent in the name of spreading self determination and democracy, but in the end Sharia law prevails. You have been lied to.

According to the US Department of Defense, US planes have flown 391 sorties over the past 12 days, bringing the total to 5,316 since April 1. ABC News reports that this includes 1,210 bombing missions and an additional 101 Predator drone strike missions. The United States has significantly participated in overthrowing a government in support of replacing it with al Qaeda and Moslem Brotherhood operatives. These are sworn enemies of the United States and have vowed to not only establish Sharia law worldwide, but also to eliminate Israel. The Moslem Brotherhood is the same organization that this White House supported in the overthrow of the Egyptian government.

Democracy has nothing to do with it except as a means to establish Sharia law. The scheme is to make people think they have freedom then appeal to their religious passion to establish Sharia law, which is no form of freedom, but rather a radical socialist, even fascist, form of government. The Heritage Foundation posted the draft Constitution for the new Libyan state--its flag with the star and crescent. It states that Libyans shall be equal before the law. Human rights will be respected with equal opportunity and fair distribution of national wealth. But all this is subject to Article 1, Part 1: "Islam is the Religion of the State and the principal source of legislation is Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia)."

Why is the president of the United States assisting sworn enemies in establishing a radical Sharia law state? In no way is Sharia law compatible with democracy; it is the antithesis of Western democracy. This Administration is culpable in Libya, Egypt, the Palestinian Territories, and who knows where else in assisting radical Islam. Islamists hold high positions of authority in America's government. Why is there no outrage and exposure from the guardians of the public interests--the free press? Why is there no outrage by our citizenry that our country is nation building in times of economic duress? Psalm 33:12 says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD." My God, what have we done?

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
Bill Wilson


The San Remo Agreement Makes a Unilateral Vote to Declare Palestinian Statehood ILLEGAL

A little known but legally binding 1920 decision over borders in the Middle East is central to the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This international accepted legislation must be included in any peace settlement.

On April 25th, 1920 the Supreme Council of Allied Powers met in San Remo, Italy to decide the future boundaries of the Middle East. Although none of the overall boundaries have been altered since then, many false arguments have arisen in opposition to these firmly established precedents. The 1920 decision of the Supreme Council of the Principal Allied Powers, Britain, France, Japan, Italy (with the US not present but in full agreement) stands to this day.

In light of the looming unilateral declaration of Palestinian Staehood before the United Nations General Assembly next month in New York, the 1920 San Remo Conference must be fully taken into account.

This end-run action by the PA is designed to avoid legal negotiations with the already sovereign State of Israel. San Remo-based International law stands firmly on the side of Israel and against Palestinian Authority or UN declarations.


Send the following letter to Israeli and U.S. leadership and let them know that we must implement the San Remos agreement as a basis for any Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement.

NOTE: there is NO CHARGE for this service.

Dear Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,

With the Palestinians poised to appeal to the United Nations for a unilateral creation of a Palestinian State, I am concerned that you are being pressured to concede to unreasonable Palestinian demands. After World War I, the Allied Powers designated final borders for the conquered countries with the San Remo Agreement. I respectfully ask you to stand by that Agreement which was originally ratified by 51 countries and gives Israel complete rights to annex all of Palestine. In fact, the original borders included Jordan and the Sinai Penninsula.
Chaim Weizman, a Jewish leader who became the first President of the State of Israel described the San Remo agreement,

"[T]hat recognition of our rights in Palestine is embodied in the treaty with Tu rkey; and has become part of international law. This is the most momentous political event in the whole history of our movement, and it is perhaps, no exaggeration to say in the whole history of our people since the Exile. [The decision of the Supreme Council of the Principal Allied Powers] crowns the British declaration by enacting it as part of the law of nations of the world."

Be strong and very courageous Prime Minister Netanyahu. The 112th Congress and Christian and Jewish America stand with you.

Further land concessions would be a great disservice to the millions of lives lost in securing and retaining the ancient Homeland of the Jewish people.

Send this Urgent Call to Action

UCI Presents Film to Document the San Remo Agreement

The new film explains how the legitimacy of the modern state of Israel is based on legal acts and commitments made by the international community after World War I. At the San Remo conference, organized by the Supreme Council of the Allied Powers (Great Britain, France, Italy, Japan and the USA), the right of the Jewish state to be re-constituted was incorporated into international law and remains the legal precedent to this day.

Dear Sara,

Please forward this media alert to your organization members. We are working with ECI to get this important information out prior to the U.N. proceedings next month. This video is designed to focus on current international law. The San Remo agreement can be used to counter the Palestinian move to unilaterally declare a state at the U.N. September 20th.

Thanks for getting the following alert and 15 minute video out to your members.

Unity Coaltion for Israel

Day of Rage in NY

In the wake of Britain 's riots, a group of American radicals are planning a "Day of Rage" targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.

The upcoming protests, replete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, is closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.

There are indications the protesters are training to incite violence, resist arrest and disrupt the legal system.

The protest aims to take root nationwide.

Activists are advertising on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a "Day of Rage" on Sept. 17 to begin with the "occupation" of Wall Street and continue with protests across the nation.

To learn more about this planned protest, go here.: http://www.usdayofrage.org/

- Although this protest is being billed as "nonviolent," it has all the elements of being just the opposite. Pray in agreement, asking the LORD to diffuse the energy being spent in organizing these rallies, so they will come to naught. We believe in freedom of speech, but there are better ways to voice one's opinions . . .

- "The LORD is righteous; He has cut in two the cords of the wicked." (Psalm 129:4)

In Idaho . . .

9th Circuit: Idaho Charter School Teachers Have No 1st Amendment Right To Use Religious Texts

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by an Idaho state-funded charter school and two of its teachers challenging a policy adopted by the state's Public Charter School Commission

The Commission adopted the view of the state attorney general that the use of religious documents or texts in a public charter school classroom would violate Art. IX, Sec. 6 of the Idaho Constitution. That section prohibits the use of sectarian books or documents in public school classrooms.

Teachers at the Academy wanted to use primary source documents-- including the Bible and the Koran-- in teaching their courses and argued that the ban violated their and their students' 1st and 14th Amendment rights. (Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation)

And in Delaware . . .

Another Circuit Shorts Out on Prayer

The court ruled that the Indian River School District in Delaware cannot open board meetings with prayer because students might attend the meetings and be unduly influenced by such expressions of faith. (Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation)


Offering strategic and targeted prayer covering for our men and women in uniform.

Dear Friends,

Over the past few months, our CHPP Prayer Warriors have become increasingly burdened with a call to intercede for the safety of our men and women in uniform.

From the horrific shootings at Ft. Hood to the recent downing of our Navy helicopter in Afghanistan, which claimed 32 lives including many of our Navy Seals, it is becoming increasingly apparent that those who protect us need protection, themselves.

For this purpose, we call upon our King of Kings and our Lord of Lords to unleash His Heavenly Host to be encamped round about each man or woman now serving in the ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE AND MARINES, providing a CANOPY OF PROTECTION for each one. WE CLAIM AND DECREE OUT LOUD ALL OF PSALM 91 FOR OUR TROOPS.

In order to facilitate this new prayer initiative, Capitol Hill Prayer Partners now features a section on our blog, just below the donor link. There, you will find four links for ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE and MARINES. When you move your cursor over any one, you will be led to a page from Wikipedia that lists every single installation for each branch of the military, in every state in the Union and overseas!

We commend this "treasure trove" of information to you for your personal time in prayer, claiming PSALM 91 over each base. In addition, you can learn more information about most bases by "hitting" that name with your cursor, too. We entrust you to the Holy Spirit's guidance as you pursue our new mission in your personal prayer time or with a corporate body of believers.

As an added bonus, and to help you get started on this new prayer focus, this week we are also providing below the direct link to each branch of our military: ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE, MARINES.

Onward, Christian Soldiers!!! AMEN!


For ARMY, go here.
For NAVY, go here.
For AIR FORCE, go here.
For MARINES, go here.

Thank you!

"The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16)

The Good News Corner:

Seven Arizona Abortion Clinics Drop Service Today

Friday, Aug. 19, 2011

Summary: Planned Parenthood stops offering abortion outside metro Phoenix and Tucson areas.

Life advocates won a victory last week when a state appellate court upheld a 2009 law placing sweeping restrictions on abortion providers, including a requirement that only medical doctors can provide surgical abortions.

Today, the first wave of direct effects became clear, when Planned Parenthood announced it will no longer offer abortions at 10 of its 13 clinics statewide, located in Prescott Valley, Flagstaff and Yuma. The three that still do are all located in either Phoenix or Tucson.

Planned Parenthood, which has until mid-September to appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court, said it doesn't have enough medical doctors to provide surgical abortions at all those clinics. Chemical abortions will still be offered statewide.

"They can't find doctors to work at their clinics. Caring health professionals don't want to be part of that industry, that ends the life of children and harms women," said Deborah Sheasby, legal counsel at the Center for Arizona Policy, whichhelped draft the law. "It's the standard of care in Arizona for a doctor to be involved in this type of procedure, so they're not meeting the standard of care." (CitizenLink)

Sweet Beulah Land - By the Gaither Homecoming Group

I'm kind of homesick for the country
to which I've never been before.
No sad goodbyes will there be spoken,
for time won't matter any more.
I'm looking now just across the river
to where my faith will end in sight.
There's just a few more days to labor
then I'll take my Heavenly flight.
Beulah Land, I'm longing for you
and some day on thee I'll stand.
There my home shall be eternal.
Beulah Land, sweet Beulat Land.
