      THE NATIONAL SITUATION GETS WORSE
      and worse, particularly for Christians. We here at ANC
      are pledging anew to do everything that we can with every
      facility available to us to encourage the Christian church in
      America to take a stand in the battle to reclaim this nation
      for God, and to re-establish the basic principles upon which
      it was founded. Do not be deceived by false rhetoric from the
      administration: WE ARE LIVING IN CRITICAL TIMES.

      TWO WEEKS AGO WE POSED THIS QUESTION:
      "WHEN ARE WE GOING TO WAKE UP?"
      WE NOW NEED TO ASK IT AGAIN
       
      On Oct. 31, 2008, candidate Obama announced: “We are
      five days away from fundamentally transforming the United
      States of America.”  Despite that open threat to our American
      way of life, a threat to "fundamentally transform" everything
      this nation has ever been or has ever believed in, somehow
      we bought his campaign rhetoric and elected him. During the
      past 10 months of his administration we have learned that we
      cannot believe in much that he and his associates say -- but
      in at least this one instance he spoke the truth. He has fulfilled
      his threat; he has begun to "fundamentally transform" the
      United States of America into a concept of government based
      on historic principles of socialism, communism and the worst
      aspects of Islam and Shariah Law.
       
      Pause for a few moments and reflect on what has happened
      in those 10 months.
       
      Dr. Thomas Sowell, highly respected as a scholarly observer
      and commentator on current events, is a true Black, from
      both of his parents. Further, he exercises no secrecy with
      respect to his academic achievements. After undergraduate
      studies at Harvard (Magna Cum Laude), he did graduate
      work at Columbia and earned his Ph.D. at the University of
      Chicago. Last week he wrote a multi-part analysis titled
      "Dismantling America -- Piece by Piece." Consider these
      few excerpts from that commentary.
       
      "Just one year ago, would you have believed that an
      unelected government official, not even a Cabinet member
      confirmed by the Senate but simply one of the many 'czars'
      appointed by the President, could arbitrarily cut the pay
      of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90
      percent?
       
      "Did you think that another 'czar' would be talking about
      restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to
      subsidize newspapers-- that is, to create a situation where
      some newspapers' survival would depend on the
      government liking what they publish?
       
      "Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking
      about having a panel of so-called 'experts' deciding who
      could and could not get life-saving medical treatments? ... 
      How free would you feel to speak out against an
      administration that has the power to make life and death
      decisions about your loved ones?
       
      "Does any of this sound like America?
       
      "How about a federal agency giving school children
      material to enlist them on the side of the president? Merely
      being assigned to sing his praises in class is apparently
      not enough.
       
      "How much of America would be left if the federal
      government continued on this path? President Obama
      has already floated the idea of a national police force,
      something we have done without for more than two
      centuries. What would be the role of a national police
      force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders
      appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown
      shirts of dictators than like anything American.
       
      "How far the President will go depends of course on how
      much resistance he meets. But the direction in which he
      is trying to go tells us more than all his rhetoric or media
      spin."
       
      And that is only a small portion of the first installment of Dr.
      Sowell's analysis. Does it tend to suggest that we need to
      answer the question: "When  are we going to wake up?"
       
      For years Billy Graham preached across America,
      stressing the fact that the family is the basic element of
      American life. Destroy the family, and you destroy the
      strength of America.
       
      And that is one of the Obama plans which directly affects
      American Christians. Among candidate Obama's promises
      or threats was that he would repeal DOMA (the Defense of
      Marriage Act) signed into law by Bill Clinton -- who now
      aligns himself with Obama in support of the homosexual
      minority. Not far off is the elimination of the God-given
      concept of marriage, and in its place the legitimacy of same
      sex couples living in contradiction to traditional Hebrew-
      Christian principles which  have always prevailed.
       
      And another Obama promise/threat has been to enact FOCA
      (the Freedom of Choice Act) removing any and all restraints
      on abortion -- the murder of babies -- in direct contradiction
      to God's law that "Thou shalt not kill."
       
      Add to all that the new "Hate Crimes" law whereby ministers
      of the Gospel may be charged with a criminal act if they were
      to preach on a verse of Scripture in which God condemns
      homosexuality as an abomination.
       
      Just those few thoughts should be enough for us to say:
      IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP, AMERICA! 
       
      This week's date reminder: As of today there are exactly
      363 days to Election Day, November 2, 2010. On that day
      we, as Christians, can take a major step toward reclaiming
      America for God, and restore it to being the nation the
      Founding Fathers intended it to be.
       
      Yesterday's elections, highlighted by the Republican clean-
      sweep wins in Virginia, and the governor's victory in New
      Jersey, to any rational minded observer, are evidence of the
      first obvious breaks in the Obama stranglehold on our nation.
      And they are coupled with this week's Gallup report that at
      this point in his presidency he has sunk to the lowest public
      approval rating of any president since World War II. Of
      course, he may find comfort in the fact that he still enjoys a
      higher approval rating than Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or 
      Congress, all of which are at abysmal lows. Let's keep our
      focus on what we are going to do on November 2, 2010!
       
      Interesting: you can't believe the Vice President, either.
      Joe Biden, never adept in the use of the English language,
      last week announced that the billions of dollar in stimulus
      spending had created 640,000 new jobs . . . and then cooly
      rounded it off to a million. Actually the "gain" was less than
      the actual job loss figure for January, and sort of withers in
      the face of total unemployed now at over 15 million, and
      the national percentage figure of unemployed climbing ever
      closer to 10%. 
       
      In the face of all these evil maneuvers, what are you going
      to do? We have often given you the Capitol switchboard phone
      number where you can reach any Senator or Representative. It
      is: (202) 224-3121. Question: have you ever made one -- just
      one -- phone call to tell your Senators or Representative how
      you want them to vote? They represent you. They enjoy their
      choice jobs because voters like us put them there. And the
      other suggestion we have made is to pray for wisdom to be
      given to President Obama to do what is right. Never forget
      the admonition of the 19th century British philosopher and
      author, Alfred, Lord Tennyson: “More things are wrought
      by prayer than this world dreams of.”
       
      You're right: everyone seems to enjoy the "one liners."
      "He went to Copenhagen to seek the 2016 Olympic Games,
      but will not attend the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin
      Wall because there's no personal glory to be gained."
      (Josh  Greenberger)
       
      "We are trying on every front to increase the role of 
      government in the regulatory area."
      (Representative Barney Frank on MSNBC)
       
      "I am nostalgic for the days when the American President
      seemed to be fond of his country, and its people. This is
      largely because I have increasing doubts that our current
      President is fond of either one."  (Austin Hill)
       
      It is as if George Washington saw today's problems.
      "Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins
      of liberty abused to licentiousness." (1753)
      "The consciousness of having discharged that duty which
      we owe to our country is superior to all other considerations."
      (1788)
      "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."
      (1796) 
      "The name of American, which belongs to you, in your
      national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of
      Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local
      discriminations." (1796)
