The Daily Brief

1. Romney: Walker's Victory Will 'Echo Beyond Wisconsin - Fox News

"Tonight's results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back - and prevail - against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters said 'no' to the tired, liberal ideas of yesterday, and 'yes' to fiscal responsibility and a new direction. I look forward to working with Governor Walker to help build a better, brighter future for all Americans.

- Thank you, Father God, for this victory. May it have a ripple effect on this nation. Let the people be encouraged and know that justice prevails. Bless Governor Walker for his strong leadership, may he continue to do what is right in your eyes.

- "But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
(I Corinthians 15:57)

2. Wisconsin Results Cap Lousy Liftoff For Obama Campaign - Fox News

WAUKESHA, Wisc. -- Tuesday's oversized victory by Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wisc., in the recall election launched by labor groups and Democrats here comes at an unhappy moment for Obama Democrats. We are now about a third of the way through the general election season, and if the first act was a prelude to what's to come, President Obama will be in for a very bumpy ride. Read more.

- Many, many things can change between now and next November, and they probably will. Let's take this election one day at a time, praying daily for God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Pray!

- "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others."
(Daniel 2:20,21)

3. Authorities probe death threats against Gov. Walker - Fox News

Critics of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker took to Twitter hours after he trounced his opponent in a recall election, threatening his life and catching the attention of authorities.

Several tweets explicitly called for the assassination of Walker, a Republican who angered public sector employees and labor unions by seeking to revamp the state's beleaguered pension system. Read more.

- Pray for the safety of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, his wife and children, and those who are working closely with him on his staff. If we pray, our God is able to protect His own.

- "Because he[b] loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. (Psalm 91:14)

4. The UN Wants Complete Control Over The Internet And That Would Mean Unprecedented Censorship, Taxes And Surveillance

One of the fastest ways to ruin the Internet would be to put the United Nations in charge of it. Unfortunately, that is exactly what the United Nations wants. The United Nations is now pushing very hard for complete control over the Internet. A proposal that has the support of China, Russia, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Iran would give control of the Internet to the UN's International Telecommunication Union.

- Lord, we know this is part of the NWO, let nothing happen before its time; cause that proposal to fall apart and lose ground. Let there be no agreement among these nations who support complete control over the internet. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

- The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations. (Psalm 33:10-11)

5. 'Human barcode' could make society more organized, but invades privacy, civil liberties - NY Daily News

Would you barcode your baby? Microchip implants have become standard practice for our pets, but have been a tougher sell when it comes to the idea of putting them in people. Science fiction author Elizabeth Moon last week rekindled the debate on whether it's a good idea to "barcode" infants at birth in an interview on a BBC radio program.

- Lord, this so disturbing to suggest barcoding a baby. We know this is a tool of the the NWO to track people, but the Word warns us against taking the mark (microchip). Open the eyes of people to see the truth behind the microchip which is deceitfully and cleverly presented to the world as a desirable thing to do for security.

- "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666." (Revelation 13:16-18)

6. Survey Shows Number of "Worldly Christians" Increasing -

An online survey conducted by Changing the Face of Christianity is showing that many self-identified Christians polled do not live out their faith on a daily basis; in fact, they "rarely" do. R. Brad White, the founder of the organization who created the test, said the results were "disturbing," showing that a third of polled Christians are Christians "in name only."

- Father God, it appears many of your children have been taken captive and fallen away. Move by your Holy Spirit and restore them to their rightful place in you. Deliver them from the godless system of this world.

- "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)

7. America Remembers D-Day - American Minute

On June 6, 1944, 160,000 troops landed on the Normandy coast of France in the largest invasion force in history, involving 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft along a 50-mile stretch of heavily fortified beaches.

It was a major turning point in World War II.

Over 9,000 Allied soldiers were killed or wounded in the Normandy invasion. Read more.

- President Franklin D. Roosevelt led the nation in prayer on the eve of the invasion, saying in part:

"Help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice . . .

I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength...and, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee . . .With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy . . ."

And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil. Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen."

- Today, our nation is facing dangers of a different sort, but equally as threatening. Let us, too, "continue in prayer," as President Roosevelt has exhorted us to do, for the enemy never sleeps. Amen.

- " . . . pray without ceasing . . ." (I Thessalonians 5:17)

Walker Recall: Socialism vs Responsibility

Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker is still governor today. He won his recall by a near classic landslide 53-46 with 97% of the votes counted. Since the progressive (translated socialists and communists) movement began to add recall to state constitutions in the early 1900s, not one conservative governor has been successfully recalled. Two very liberal governors were recalled--Lynn Frazier, Governor of North Dakota in 1921 for attempting a state takeover of private industry, and Gray Davis of California in 2003 over budget incompetence. The tool the socialists thought they could use to takeover states has only been used against them. Wisconsin was no different.

The Wisconsin recall centered around fiscal responsibility. Walker needed to cut the state budget rather than raise taxes. He found a lot of money in the collective bargaining by government employees--things like fraudulent sick leave policies where employees could call in sick and then work the next shift on overtime wages. Walker's Administration and the Wisconsin legislature stopped the forcible collection of union dues from paychecks. These and other fiscally responsible changes have resulted in more jobs, lower taxes, and now that union dues are voluntary, membership of big government employee unions has dropped in half, and the teachers' union membership dropped by a third.

In 1984, Wisconsin was considered a liberal state. I was the campaign manager for a conservative pro-life, pro-Israel congressmen in one of the most liberal districts. The progressives wanted this man out. The union bosses were up to their usual tricks of giving hoards of money under the table to our opponent's campaign. The liberals sent their presidential candidate Walter Mondale and his running mate Geraldine Ferraro into this district several times on behalf of our opponent. In the end, we carried the district by nearly 69% and Ronald Reagan won not only our district, but the entire state. The people in Wisconsin don't like to be told what to do. They have to work for a living and live within their means.

That's part of the lesson in this recall--that we as Americans need to live within our means. We need to work for what we receive. We need to be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Unions, while they serve some purposes of protecting hours, wages, and working conditions, are generally socialist organizations intent on legally robbing money from industry. When government and unions work together on this wealth redistribution the economy falters and companies go bankrupt. Socialism does not work. The 8th Commandment is "Thou shalt not steal." The 10th Commandment is "Thou shalt not covet." Perhaps the rest of America will follow Wisconsin's leadership in embracing these principles for good government.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

CBO Warns Against Obama's Spending & Debt

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office warned today that America's debt to GDP ratio will double, with debt approaching 200% of GDP, in 15 to 20 years without major reforms. The CBO report also included this indictment of Obama's out-of-control spending:

"In the past few years, the federal government has been recording the largest budget deficits since 1945, both in dollar terms and as a share of the economy. Consequently, the amount of federal debt held by the public has surged."

As CBS News reported in March, Obama has added more to the federal debt in three years than George W. Bush added in eight. Clearly, Obamanomics is not working, and it's time for a change! (Gary Bauer)

Today's Legislative Focus

From The Madison Project

Farm Bill

The current 5-year farm bill is slated to expire at the end of the fiscal year. You might be wondering why we need a farm bill to begin with. Well, we shouldn't need one, but the federal government has been supporting and intervening in agriculture since the New Deal programs of the 1930s. The government has pumped billions into direct subsidies, crop insurance, conservation subsidies, marketing loans, disaster aid, trade barriers, commodity price supports, and production controls.

The farm bill also contains many other components, with the bulk of the funding going towards the Food Stamp program and other food welfare. According to the current CBO baseline projection, the 10-year [extrapolated] cost of the bill would be $995 billion, with $772 billion allocated for domestic nutrition assistance programs, and the rest, about $223 billion, divided among various agriculture-related programs. On April 26, the Senate Agriculture Committee passed a 5-year farm bill (S.3240) with support from Republicans. Even the 5 Republicans who voted against the bill only did so because the southern crops would not receive enough insurance subsidies under this proposal. Both Committee Chairman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Ranking Member Pat Roberts (R-KS) tout the fact the bill trims $23 billion from the CBO baseline. The bill is expected to be considered on the Senate floor as early as Wednesday.

Conservative Concerns:

New "Shallow Loss" Program: Supporters of the Farm bill are touting the fact that the bill eliminates the $5 billion in annual direct subsidies to farmers. The problem is that the bill creates a new program, Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) plan, which extends the coverage of crop insurance from catastrophic benefits to a guarantee of 90% of the farmer's annual revenue. The idea that the government could guarantee members of a specific profession 90% of their income, especially when food prices are so high, is an anathema to our system of free enterprise. Moreover, a new study published by the American Enterprise Institute found that the program will ultimately cost taxpayers more than the direct subsidies that are being replaced. In addition, this bill does nothing to reform the existing crop insurance program in which the federal government subsidizes 60% of the premium with no caps on total costs of the policy.

Green Energy Handouts: The committee-passed bill contains the Lugar-Conrad amendment, which allocates $800 million in mandatory spending authority for the ethanol industry and other renewable energy programs for farmers. This means that the funding would not be subject to the annual appropriations process.

Food Stamps: One of the most appalling figures of Obama's welfare state is the growth of the Food Stamp program. Since 2007, enrollment in food stamps has jumped from 27 million to 46 million, with the cost doubling to over $80 billion. The mandatory authority for the program is housed in the 5-year farm bill. This bill does nothing to reform the program, limit its growth, prevent corruption and dependency, and devolve authority to the states. At a minimum, the program needs to be decoupled from the mandatory spending in the farm bill, and subjected to the annual appropriations process.

Creating Dependency in Red States: There is also an important political argument that cannot be overlooked. At present, Republicans are incapable of being elected in about 40% of the country. There is simply too much dependency that has created a permanent super-minority for Democrats, especially in urban areas. The rural states and districts serve as the base for conservative governance. Yet, many of the Republicans who represent these areas work in tandem with local special interests to establish dependency in some of our most conservative farming districts. If we are going to create a permanent dependency in rural America in addition to the urban welfare state, what is left for our Republic? Moreover, where can we elect conservatives who respect the free market?

This bill is an anathema to free markets and should be opposed by every Republican. We must demand that every senator join a filibuster against the bill in the Senate when it comes to the floor later this week. On the House side, this bill should be dead-on-arrival and must not be considered by the House Agriculture Committee when it meets on June 18. This will be our next seminal intra-party battle. It is a fight we must win.

On the Gay Rights Front

Accept Homo Demands -- Or Else!

For six years the Christian owners of a small photography business have fought the state of New Mexico for violating their religious liberty. At issue in this case was whether the owners would be forced to photograph a homosexual "marriage." When the couple refused, New Mexico's Civil Rights Commission accused them of discrimination and slapped them with a $7,000 fine. So the couple sued.

Last week, an appeals court upheld the Civil Rights Commission's fine ruling that religious freedom could not be the basis for discriminating against "protected classes," including homosexuals. According to one report, attorneys for the Christian couple asked the court to consider the example of a black photographer being asked to photograph a KKK rally. The judge was unmoved. In New Mexico, the private bedroom behaviors of homosexuals trump religious freedom.

My friends, I know the economy is front and center in this election, but the culture war is very real. This election will have tremendous consequences for the values we will pass on to our children and grandchildren. I cannot stress enough just how important it is for every conservative to vote this November. (Gary Bauer)


Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin who has led a gallant effort to bring the state of Wisconsin back from the brink of financial disaster has shown that sound leadership and tenacity will prevail. By a wide margin, he won the recall election held on Tuesday!
This does not bode well for the public unions that sought to bring Wisconsin back under its grip. Many high profile "progressives" (liberals, Marxists) wastefully poured millions of dollars into an effort to regain control of the state of Wisconsin, but to no avail.

"Now is the time for us to come together," Walker told supporters after claiming victory. "Tomorrow we are all Wisconsinites."

Late Tuesday evening with nearly all precincts reporting, Walker had 53 percent of the vote, compared with 46 percent for Barrett. The margin of victory was wider than many expected and slightly better than Walker's 5.8 percentage-point victory over Barrett in the 2010 race. Some 2.5 million voters cast their ballots.

Republicans see Walker's win as evidence voters across the country want their elected officials to keep government living within its means.

elected officials to keep government living within its means. Democratic groups -- including those funded by unions, the Democratic Governors Association and the Democratic National Committee -- poured in about $14 million, based on a tally from the government watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Barrett's $4.2 million in donations were mostly from inside Wisconsin.

"Obviously, Scott Walker winning tonight means that the Republicans are here for real," said Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Conservatives are here for real." Mr. Priebus was attending Mr. Walker's victory party at the Waukesha County Exposition Center, where "We Stand With Walker" signs were all around.

Walker, the 44-year-old son of a minister, remained unflappable throughout the campaign, as he was during the massive protests that raged at the Statehouse for weeks as lawmakers debated his proposal.

Many voters seemed relieved the election had finally come, and voiced disgust with the recall process. "There are too many recall elections that have been going on in the state and it needs to be stopped," said Carolyn Gral, a Walker supporter and homemaker.

"Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C.," Romney said in a statement. "Tonight's results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin." (Contributors: Fox News, Associated Press, New York Times, LA Times, NBC)

- Pray that the state of Wisconsin will remain on a sound economic footing and that their recovery plan will continue to be a model of sound economic recovery for other states. Pray for unity of the state's citizenry, because there remains a great divide in the ideologies of governmental rule that will be hard to reconcile if not worked upon and prayed over.

- "Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no? But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's. And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's."
(Luke 20:22-25; 22) [Reported by: Intercessors for America]

German Medical Association Adopts Formal Apology for Evil Inflicted by Nazi Doctors During WWII

The apology reads: Nazi doctors were "guilty, contrary to their mission to heal, of scores of human rights violations and we ask the forgiveness of their victims, living and deceased, and of their descendants."

REPORTER'S NOTE: I believe this resolution by the German Medical Association is not just a simple apology. In the supernatural realm, a public confession and plea for forgiveness is one of the most powerful actions an institution can take. My prayer is that as a result, healing and restoration between the German nation and the Jews can truly be accomplished in our lifetime. It is also a sobering reminder to our generation. When so-called "outstanding medical and research" doctors and institutions espouse something we sense is unethical, beware. -Teresa Neumann, Breaking Christian News

The German Medical Association has apologized for the sadistic experiments and other atrocious actions inflicted on Jews by doctors of the Third Reich during the Holocaust.
A statement by the association was adopted last week in Nuremberg saying that Nazi doctors were "guilty, contrary to their mission to heal, of scores of human rights violations and we ask the forgiveness of their victims, living and deceased, and of their descendants."

According to a Medical Daily report, the association also noted, "contrary to popular belief, doctors were not ordered by political authorities to oil and to experiment on prisoners. Instead, the doctors had engaged in the Holocaust as leaders and enthusiastic Nazi supporters."

The doctors, they added, were "outstanding representatives of renowned academic medical and research institutions," and should serve as a warning for the future.
