The Right Thing To Do
On July 18th, 2007, ABC News' Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson reported that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood that sex education for kindergarteners is "the right thing to do."   (Video at link).
Don't Ask, Don't Tell
April 10th -- The Democratic presidential front-runner favors repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy , which was instituted during the Clinton administration.

"But I think there's increasing recognition within the Armed Forces that this is a counterproductive strategy," he said.  "We're spending large sums of money to kick highly qualified gays or lesbians out of our military, some of whom possess specialties like Arab-language capabilities that we desperately need.  That doesn't make us more safe."

"The gay press may feel like I'm not giving them enough love, but basically all press feels that way at all times," Obama told The Advocate.  He said he's frequently spoken out against homophobia and in support of gay rights.

Asked what he could reasonably accomplish for the gay community as president, Obama said he can "reasonably see" repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy as well as signing legislation to ban workplace discrimination against gays.  He said he'd like transgendered people to be covered by the law, but thinks it would be tough to get such legislation through Congress.

Obama also said he's interested in ensuring that same-sex couples in civil unions get federal benefits.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual And Transgender Rights
Barack Obama's position on:

Expand Hate Crimes Statutes:

In 2004, crimes against LGBT Americans constituted the third-highest category of hate crime reported. Obama co-sponsored legislation to expand federal hate crimes law to include crimes perpetrated because of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Fight Workplace Discrimination and Promote Rights:

Obama believes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act should be expanded to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Obama sponsored legislation in the Illinois State Senate that would ban employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT Couples:

Obama also believes we need to fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex couples in civil unions and other legally recognized unions.

Oppose a Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage:

Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples.

Repeal Donít Ask-Donít Tell:

Obama believes we need to repeal the "donít ask, donít tell" policy. The key test for military service should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve. Obama will work with military leaders to repeal the current policy and ensure we accomplish our national defense goals.

Fight AIDS Worldwide:

Obama has been a global leader in the fight against AIDS. He traveled to Kenya and took a public HIV test to encourage testing and reduce the stigma of the disease. Obama worked to reauthorize the Ryan White CARE Act, one of the largest sources of federal funds for primary health care and support services for HIV/AIDS patients.

For Fully Equal Rights And Benefits
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who previously said the issue of gay marriage should be left up to each state, has announced his opposition to a California ballot measure that would ban same-sex marriages.

In a letter to the "Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club," read Sunday at the group's annual Pride Breakfast in San Francisco, the Illinois senator said he supports extending "fully equal rights and benefits to same-sex couples under both state and federal law."

"And that is why I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states," Obama wrote.
Pledged His Support For Homosexual "Families"
In an August, 2008, letter to a Boston-based homosexual rights group, the Family Equality Council, Obama specifically pledged to use the presidency to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) -- and pledged his support for homosexual "families" and efforts to totally redefine marriage.

He wrote: "... (W)e also have to do more to support and strengthen Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgendered (LGBT) families.  Because equality in relationship, family, and adoption rights is not some abstract principle; itís about whether millions of LGBT Americans can finally live lives marked by dignity and freedom.

"Thatís why we have to repeal laws like the Defense of Marriage Act.  Thatís why we have to eliminate discrimination against LGBT families.  And thatís why we have to extend equal treatment in our family and adoption laws," Obama wrote.

"Iíll be a president that stands up for American families -- all of them," he added.
Crucial To Victory
Obama credits gay activists with making the Democratic Party "immeasurably stronger."

In a letter to the partyís LGBT Caucus -- the acronym stands for Lesbian/ Gay/ Bisexual/Transgender -- Obama said the group "will be crucial to bringing our Party together and sweeping us to victory on November 4th."

"Congratulations on being part of the largest LGBT Caucus delegation in Democratic National Convention history," Obama wrote.  "I look forward to seeing the LGBT community turn out in record numbers to help create the changes we seek."
Patriotism
Sixteen years after Bill Clinton tried to end restrictions on gays in the military, the US armed forces under Barack Obama may be forced to give homosexuals the same welcome as non-gays.

Under president Clinton, the policy that once saw homosexuals discharged from US military service evolved to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," allowing gays to remain in the military so long as they did not reveal their sexual orientation.

Obama has pledged to overhaul current law.

"The key test for military service should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve.  Discrimination should be prohibited," reads an entry on the president-elect's transition website.
Get Me The Homo
Obama has chosen the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal church to pray at the kickoff event for the inaugural festivities this Sunday.

Bishop V. Gene Robinson, who advised Obama on gay rights issues during the campaign, is set to deliver the invocation at an event on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial two days before the swearing-in ceremony, aides to Obama said Monday.

Robinson has also become a well known figure around the world in the debate over gay rights. His consecration as a bishop six years ago set in motion a widening rift in the Anglican church.
Bitterness And Bigotry
As Obama prepares to be sworn in as commander in chief on January 20, homosexual-rights activists are gleeful about changes he will bring to the armed services.  Based on his campaign promises, Obama is expected to overturn the military's policy regarding sexual conduct.  Commonly referred to as "donít ask, donít tell," the military prohibits the service of openly practicing homosexuals.  This policy was created early in the Clinton administration after a long and divisive fight and the hard-fought compromise has drawn the ire of liberals such as Obama ever since.

"It's time to turn the page on the bitterness and bigotry that fill so much of today's LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) rights debate," Obama said while campaigning.  "The rights of all Americans should be protected -- whether it's at work or anyplace else.  'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' needs to be repealed because patriotism and a sense of duty should be the key tests for military service, not sexual orientation."

Not reported in the media or discussed by advocates are the opinions of the men and women actually serving our country that would be affected by this change in policy.  A poll of some 2,000 active duty military taken in December by the Military Times found that 58 percent opposed a policy change. Of those polled, 10 percent said they would not reenlist, and 14 percent reported they would consider not reenlisting if the policy is changed to please homosexual activists.

Essentially, the United States military, the greatest fighting force ever assembled, has had a policy in place against homosexual conduct since its formation.  This policy annoys certain liberals who want to force their social agenda on the rest of the country and ignore those affected.

Watch the military disintegrate when this stuff (warning, nasties), part of the inauguration festivities, goes on in the barracks.

Update:  Citing pressure from "extreme Christian groups" this expression of "gay love" has been cancelled -- anyone wanna bet it was moved to another venue?
Obama Orders Same-Sex Hospital Visits
Michael D. Shear says that on Thursday, Obama mandated that nearly all hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and respect patients' choices about who may make critical health-care decisions for them, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans.

Obama directed the Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit discrimination in hospital visitation in a memo that was e-mailed to reporters Thursday night while he was at a fundraiser in Miami.

Administration officials and gay activists, who have been quietly working together on the issue, said the new rule will affect any hospital that receives Medicare or Medicaid funding, a move that covers the vast majority of the nation's health-care institutions.  Obama's order will start a rule-making process at HHS that could take several months, officials said.

Hospitals often bar visitors who are not related to an incapacitated patient by blood or marriage, and gay rights activists say many do not respect same-sex couples' efforts to designate a partner to make medical decisions for them if they are seriously ill or injured.

"Discrimination touches every facet of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, including at times of crisis and illness, when we need our loved ones with us more than ever," Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said in a statement praising the president's decision.

Obama's mandate is the latest attempt by his administration to advance the agenda of a constituency that strongly supported his presidential campaign.

White House Rips CBS News
Howard Kurtz says the White House ripped CBS News on Thursday for publishing an online column by a blogger who made assertions about the sexual orientation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, widely viewed as a leading candidate for the Supreme Court.

Ben Domenech, a former Bush administration aide and Republican Senate staffer, wrote that Obama would "please" much of his base by picking the "first openly gay justice."  An administration official, who asked not to be identified discussing personal matters, said Kagan is not a lesbian.

CBS initially refused to pull the posting, prompting Anita Dunn, a former White House communications director who is working with the administration on the high court vacancy, to say: "The fact that they've chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010."  She said the network was giving a platform to a blogger "with a history of plagiarism" who was "applying old stereotypes to single women with successful careers."

The network deleted the posting Thursday night after Domenech said he was merely repeating a rumor.  The flare-up underscores how quickly the battle over a Supreme Court nominee -- or even a potential nominee -- can turn searingly personal.  Most major news organizations have policies against "outing" gays or reporting on the sex lives of public officials unless they are related to their public duties.

A White House spokesman, Ben LaBolt, said he complained to CBS because the column "made false charges."  Domenech later added an update to the post: "I have to correct my text here to say that Kagan is apparently still closeted -- odd, because her female partner is rather well known in Harvard circles."

Obama Heckled Over "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
The AP is reporting that a gay rights activist heckled Obama at a San Francisco fundraiser Tuesday night, urging Obama to "move faster" on a proposed repeal of "don't ask, don't tell."

Kip Williams, co-founder of the activist group GetEqual, interrupted as Obama was delivering a fundraising speech for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).  Obama paused to lecture the man as other Democratic supporters booed the heckler.

"I hate to say this, but ... if he wants to demonstrate, buy a ticket to a guy who doesn't support his point of view, and then you can yell as much as you want there," Obama said.  Williams' group interrupted another Obama speech earlier this year, in Los Angeles.

Obama told Williams to "read the newspapers."  "He said do it faster," Obama said.  "It's like, come on, man, I'm dealing with Congress here.  It takes a little bit of time."

Obama's Statement On Votes to Repeal "Donít Ask, Donít Tell"
I have long advocated that we repeal "Donít Ask Donít Tell," and I am pleased that both the House of Representatives and the Senate Armed Services Committee took important bipartisan steps toward repeal tonight.  Key to successful repeal will be the ongoing Defense Department review, and as such I am grateful that the amendments offered by Representative Patrick Murphy and Senators Joseph Lieberman and Carl Levin that passed today will ensure that the Department of Defense can complete that comprehensive review that will allow our military and their families the opportunity to inform and shape the implementation process.  Our military is made up of the best and bravest men and women in our nation, and my greatest honor is leading them as Commander-in-Chief.  This legislation will help make our Armed Forces even stronger and more inclusive by allowing gay and lesbian soldiers to serve honestly and with integrity.
Obama Expands His Pro-Homosexual Agenda By Regulation
Fred Lucas says without action by Congress, Barack Obama announced that his administration will issue regulations applying the Family and Medical Leave Act to homosexual couples and requiring most hospitals to allow homosexuals to visit their partners.

One conservative group criticized the White House for handing out "political favors" to the homosexual lobby -- and vastly expanding presidential power in the process.

"Piece by anti-democratic piece, the White House is executing its plan for a vast expansion of presidential power," the Family Research Council said.  "What this administration has accomplished is nothing less than suspending the power of Congress."

Speaking at an LGBT [Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender] Pride Month reception in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday evening, Obama told homosexual activists that his Labor Department has made it clear that under the Family and Medical Leave Act, "same-sex couples -- as well as others raising children -- are to be treated like the caretakers that they are."

Hours before the White House reception started, Obamaís Labor Department announced a new "interpretation" of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the 1993 law that allows workers to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period to care for loved ones or themselves.

"All families, including LGBT families, are protected by the FMLA," the Labor Department said.  It described the move as "a victory for many non-traditional families, including families in the lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender community, who often in the past have been denied leave to care for their loved ones."

"And before we came out here today, I wanted to make sure that I had followed up -- Secretary Sebelius will officially be proposing this regulation," Obama said.  "And I can also announce that the secretary has sent a letter today asking these hospitals to adopt these changes now -- even before the rule takes effect."

Obama Is Sabotaging Defense of Marriage Act
Liberty Counsel says that in his decision declaring section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, Judge Tauro characterizes Congressís decision to define marriage for federal purposes as between one man and one woman as an "irrational" desire to "punish[]" same-sex couples based solely on "animus."  While Judge Tauroís conclusions are unfounded, far-reaching, and should be reversed on appeal, even more shocking is the fact that the Obama administration is intentionally sabotaging DOMA.

Read this News Release learn about it.

Obama has been actively promoting an agenda to undermine the nationís marriage laws.  When you weaken the family, as Obama is doing by his policies, you weaken society.  Children fare best when raised with a mom and a dad.  Redefining marriage to something it was not intended to be weakens the family and is not in the best interest of children or society.  Obama and Holder must defend the nationís marriage laws.  The Obama administration must defend DOMA, not sabotage the law.

And this judge's career was paved by Republicans.  Tauro was Chief Counsel to Massachusetts Republican Governor John Volpe. In 1971.  He was nominated by Republican President Richard Nixon to U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.  He was nominated to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts by President Richard Nixon on September 12, 1972.
Obama's Homosexual-Muslim Conflict
The Washington Times says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said recently that, ''Human rights are gay rights, and gay rights are human rights, once and for all."  That's a touchy-feely liberal talking point, but don't tell it to the Muslims.  Eventually, the Obama administration might have to decide to which radical group it's most important to pander: homosexuals or Muslims.  There is some friction between these two Obama constituencies.

Mrs. Clinton has worked diligently to further the homosexual agenda in the State Department, from securing spouse-style benefits for same-sex partners of department employees to formalizing reporting on homosexual issues in State's annual human rights report.  The State Department currently is implementing a program seeking accreditation from foreign host governments for the same-sex domestic partners of diplomatic and consular personnel "as members of the family" and "that they be accorded the same status, privileges and immunities currently accorded other members of the household, such as spouses."  Chiefs of mission are to approach host governments seeking this accreditation except when "such an approach to the host government would do more harm than good by impeding the ability of same-sex partners to accompany personnel to post or otherwise cause harm to personnel or their families."

So, despite widespread opposition to homosexual "marriage" here at home, the U.S. government is pressuring foreign governments to officially recognize homosexual unions abroad.  The main pushback is coming from the Muslim world, where "alternative lifestyle" is just another way of saying blasphemy.  As the State Department's 2010 Human Rights report for Saudi Arabia notes, "under Sharia as interpreted in the country, sexual activity between two persons of the same gender is punishable by death or flogging.  It is illegal for men 'to behave like women' or to wear women's clothes and vice versa."  The State Department did not list any cases in which these laws were enforced, and Saudi Arabia tends not to publicize such matters.  "We always make sure that cases like this are not open to the public," said Jeddah Police Lieutenant Nawaf Al-Bouq.  "I don't think it's appropriate or important for the citizens or the country."  What they don't know won't make them curious.

Homosexual conduct also carries the death penalty in Sudan, Yemen, Mauritania, northern Nigeria and Iran, which has executed more homosexuals than any country in the world.  Elsewhere in the region, the practice is often punished with a combination of jail time, fines and corporal punishment.  Muslim countries are also wary of homosexual outsiders polluting their societies with their "sodomite" ways.  In May, the Saudi government instructed guest-worker recruitment agencies in the Philippines to screen applicants thoroughly "so that those belonging to the third sex are excluded."  That same month, the Egyptian government forced flamboyantly flaming singer Elton John to cancel a concert in that country for making controversial statements such as, "try being a gay woman in the Middle East -- you're as good as dead."

Given Obama's fawning outreach to Muslim majority states, this drive for homosexual equality seems something of a disconnect.  The Democratic conundrum illustrates an aspect of the clash of civilizations Obama is willfully ignoring.  Appeals to liberal Western notions of human rights fall on deaf ears with Muslims.

The Organization of the Islamic Conference long has held the view that such international touchstone documents as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights apply to their member states only insofar as they do not conflict with Koranic law.  Otherwise, their provisions are null and void -- and that test applies to everything from free speech to freedom of worship.  In the Muslim view, the only legitimate rights are those bestowed by Allah, and Mohammed was not known for his "gay-friendly" attitude.  This is one fight in which the State Department, and Obama, eventually will make a very diplomatic retreat.
The Obama Elite Vs The American People
The Foundry blog says that this Tuesday voters in Missouri, by a 40-point margin, approved a ballot measure rejecting the individual mandate at the core of Obamaís health care law.  Asked what the vote meant to the White House, press secretary Robert Gibbs said: "Nothing."  Yesterday in San Francisco, federal judge Vaughn Walker gave the exact same weight to a California ballot measure that affirmed marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.  Specifically Judge Walker overturned the California Marriage Protection Act after concluding, as a matter of fact, that the majority of Californians who voted to protect marriage were bigots who had no rational basis to define marriage on their own terms.  Here are just some of the "facts" Judge Walker found:
    

ē  Religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians.


ē  The campaign to pass Proposition 8 relied on stereotypes to show that same-sex relationships are inferior to opposite-sex relationships.


ē  The Proposition 8 campaign relied on fears that children exposed to the concept of same-sex marriage may become gay or lesbian.


ē  The genetic relationship between a parent and a child is not related to a childís adjustment outcomes.


ē  Children do not need to be raised by a male parent and a female parent to be well-adjusted.

    
How did Judge Walker arrive at these "facts"?  By agreeing with everything the same-sex marriage proponents' "experts" said while ruling that the traditional marriage witness was "unreliable" and "provided no credible evidence to support any of the claimed adverse effects proponents promised to demonstrate."  In so doing, Walker not only ignored the views of millions of Californians, but by basing his decision on the 14th Amendment, he also ignored the factual determinations of every single popular vote that has been held on the issue in the past two decades.  According to Judge Walkerís reasoning every single one of these Americans is a bigot whose opinion on marriage has no place under Judge Walkerís Constitution.

From the beginning, it was clear that Judge Walker was more interested in making a political statement than upholding the rule of law.  That is why after Judge Walker ruled that the trial could be broadcast live, the Supreme Court took the remarkable step of overturning his decision, writing in January: "Not only did [Judge Walker's court] ignore the federal statute that establishes the procedures by which its rules may be amended, its express purpose was to broadcast a high-profile trial that would include witness testimony about a contentious issue."

Clearly that Supreme Court would have rightly viewed with great skepticism every sentence of Judge Walkerís spurious ruling.  But that Court will not be deciding this case.  Today the Senate voted to confirm Obamaís Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.  The same Elena Kagan who manipulated the law and facts to deny military recruiters equal access to Harvard law students because she did not personally approve of our militaryís personnel policies regarding same-sex relationships.

The same Elena Kagan who was simply "not sympathetic" to the claim of a petitioner that his 2nd amendment rights were violated, and was actively involved in President Clintonís gun control agenda.  The same Elena Kagan who advised President Clinton that it would be a "disaster" if the full medical truth was revealed about partial-birth abortion, endangering the gruesome procedure.

The facts are becoming quite clear.  Kagan, Walker, Gibbs, and Obama all give the same weight to the will of the American people as expressed at the ballot box: "Nothing."

According to the Library of Congress website, Judge Vaughn Walker, the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, is a homosexual.  He is one of only two federal jurists to be out of the closet.

This one man cancelled out the votes of 7 million Californians.  If he was a proper judge he would have recused himself.
Judge Cites Obama In Overturning "Donít Ask, Donít Tell"
Matt Cover is reporting that the California-based federal judge who declared the militaryís ban on homosexual conduct, known colloquially as "Donít Ask, Donít Tell" (DADT), is unconstitutional, based her decision in part on statements made by Barack Obama himself.

Judge Virginia Phillips ruled on Sept. 9 that the DADT policy, codified in 10 U.S.C. ss. 654, which states, "The prohibition against homosexual conduct is a long-standing element of military law that continues to be necessary in the unique circumstances of military service," is unconstitutional, violating both the First and Fifth amendments.

In making this ruling, Judge Phillips directly overturns the lawís claim that prohibiting homosexual conduct is necessary for maintaining military readiness and cohesion.  Judge Phillips said:
    

"The Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act infringes the fundamental rights of United States service members in many ways."

 

"In order to justify the encroachment on these rights, Defendants [the government] faced the burden at trial of showing the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act was necessary to significantly further the Government's important interests in military readiness and unit cohesion.  Defendants failed to meet that burden."

 

"Defendants have admitted that, far from being necessary to further significantly the Government's interest in military readiness, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act actually undermines that interest."

         
In making her ruling, Judge Phillips cited Obamaís June 29, 2009 address to a gathering of gay activists and government officials, singling out Obamaís contradiction of the long-time position of U.S. military officials that homosexual conduct could damage military effectiveness.

She continued:
    

 "...Obama, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, stated on June 29, 2009: ĎDon't Ask, Don't Tell doesn't contribute to our national securityÖpreventing patriotic Americans from serving their country weakens our national securityÖ[R]eversing this policy [is] the right thing to do [and] is essential for our national security.í"

New Gay Army
The Washington Times is reporting that a top general called Christian soldiers bigots and racists.

Next week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is expected to begin floor debate on a defense authorization bill that would repeal the Clinton-era "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and allow homosexuals to serve openly in the armed forces.  Last month, a top military official offered a glimpse of how the military might look should the new policy take effect: Those serving who oppose the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) agenda are no longer welcome.

Those were the views of Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, the Army's deputy chief of staff in charge of personnel matters who spoke about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" before several hundred troops at the European Command headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.  "Unfortunately, we have a minority of service members who are still racists and bigoted and you will never be able to get rid of all of them," Lt. Gen. Bostick said.  "But these people opposing this new policy will need to get with the program, and if they can't, they need to get out.  No matter how much training and education of those in opposition, you're always going to have those that oppose this on moral and religious grounds just like you still have racists today."

The strong words take additional significance from Lt. Gen. Bostick's direct involvement with a Pentagon panel charged with shaping military policy on this issue.  Although Lt. Gen. Bostick presented the question of homosexuals in the military as if it were about civil rights, it is nothing of the kind.  The services must discriminate to function.  Those who are too old, too weak or too overweight must be shown the door even when similar actions in the private sector might spark a lawsuit.  The reason for the military's existence is to win battles and wars, not to ensure feelings aren't hurt or to serve as a playground for social experimentation.

The military's long-standing ban on homosexual conduct is rooted in the principles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which also criminalizes adulterous conduct among heterosexuals insofar as it undermines the good order and discipline of the armed forces.  Lt. Gen. Bostick suggested he would employ the same strict disciplinary standards to provide "education and training" that would ensure soldiers, sailors and airmen embrace the new LGBT agenda.

"Unfortunately, if the law is repealed, the military will attempt to do what it does -- makes things work, for better or worse," Tommy Sears, executive director of the Center for Military Readiness, told The Washington Times.  "So there will be no toleration of dissent.  If for whatever reason you disagree, whether it's religious conviction or personal objection, your career will in essence be over."

Servicemen should not be booted from the military because of their sincerely held religious convictions.  It's unseemly for a senior officer to equate those who hold traditional values with racists and bigots.  Lt. Gen. Bostick's careless words demonstrate his unsuitability to the task, and, for that reason, he should withdraw from further involvement in the Pentagon panel set to issue a report on the new policy by Dec. 1.  The Senate also should reject this attempt to undermine the effectiveness, morale and morals of the military on the behalf of a radical fringe.
Obama On Homosexuality: "I Donít Think Itís A Choice"
Jonathan Weisman is reporting that Barack Obama declared today that the "donít ask, donít tell" policy on gays in the military "will end and it will end on my watch," even as his Justice Department was appealing a judgeís ruling that would have allowed homosexuals to serve openly in the military.

Speaking at a town hall meeting put on jointly by BET, MTV and Country Music Television, Obama also said a personís sexuality is not a choice.

"I donít profess to be an expert -- this is a lay personís opinion -- but I donít think itís a choice," he said.  "People are born with a certain makeup.  We are all children of God.  We donít make determinations about who we love."

Obama Appoints Record Number Of Gay Officials
Sam Hananel says Less than halfway through his first term, Barack Obama has appointed more openly gay officials than any other president in history.

Gay activists say the estimate of more than 150 appointments so far -- from agency heads and commission members to policy officials and senior staffers -- surpasses the previous high of about 140 reached during two full terms under President Bill Clinton.

"From everything we hear from inside the administration, they wanted this to be part of their efforts at diversity," said Denis Dison, spokesman for the Presidential Appointments Project of the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute.

The pace of appointments has helped to ease broader disappointment among gay rights groups that Obama has not acted more quickly on other fronts, such as ending the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bans gays from serving openly in the military.

264,600 May Quit Military
Brian Fitzpatrick is reporting that the commanders of the Army, Air Force and Marines cautioned the U.S. Senate against abruptly repealing the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy.  Critics are also warning that accepting open homosexuality and pro-homosexual "reprogramming" could drive massive numbers of troops out of the service.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., pointed out during the first day of the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings on Thursday that according to a survey conducted for the Pentagon, repealing DADT could create an "alarming" troop retention problem at a time when the military is already shorthanded.

Said McCain, "If 12.6 percent of the military left earlier, that translates into 264,600 men and women who would leave the military earlier than they had planned Ö Do you think that's a good idea to replace 265,000 troops Ö in a time of war?"

Military analyst Bob Maginnis, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, said the real number could exceed half a million.

"Twelve-point-six percent is just the people who said they would leave," Maginnis said.  "If you add in the number who said they 'might' leave, you get 23.7 percent.  That would be 528,000, when you count both active duty and reserves.

"And that's only if you trust their numbers," Maginnis continued.  "They have a real problem with their numbers.  It's skewed toward noncombatants, and the Air Force had much larger proportional participation than the Army, so the numbers are totally unreliable.

"They spun their questions in a way that's absolutely bizarre.  They literally have distorted the truth, it's all about repeal, not about what's good for the service," he said..

"I don't think people understand how they have spun these numbers.  Not only is the survey biased, the way they combined their percentages is skewed.  They say 50 or 55 percent of the troops support repeal, but that's not true.  The big slice of that 55 percent is 'mixed', some positive, some negative."  The truth is, it was 30 percent negative, and 15 or 20 percent positive."

Maginnis said the results of the survey consistently show that two service members oppose DADT repeal for every supporter.

Brokeback Obama Just Adores House Vote To End DADT
FreeThinkerNY tells us that Barack Obama is praising the House for passing legislation to end the Pentagon policy that bans gays from serving openly in the military.
    
    
The legislation awaits Senate action now.

The House passed the measure 250-175.  Obama says the legislation permits a smooth transition from the Clinton-era "donít-ask-donít-tell" standard.

Obama says the legislation will give the military "the clarity and certainty it deserves."

The measure faces an uphill fight in the Senate where key Republicans such as Sen. John McCain of Arizona have raised emphatic objection to ending the policy.
Obama's New "Gay Force"
Kevin McCullough says with the passage of the law to repeal the Clinton-era legislation commonly referred to as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," Obama enters into a new reality.  In one last blaze of defiance of the American people, and expressly those who serve in our nation's armed forces, Obama was able to shove social engineering into the one corner of American culture where he has no business doing so.

Upon his signature Obama will begin a process that will at the very least disrupt operations, and at the very worst see the eventual weakening of our armed forces.

Throughout the entirety of this debate I've had questions, none of which seemed to be answered or even asked in the congressional sessions dealing with the matter.

From a purely pragmatic standpoint perhaps someone could answer them now, since I'm especially sure that Obama wouldn't push for such a fundamental transformation of our military without good answers to them.

If it is morally questionable to have men and women housed together because of the sexual tension that exists between primarily men who would be predatorily interested in the women they might shower with or frequently be seen in the act of dressing and undressing on a regular basis, why is it any different if you have identified the predatory homosexual male who might have an unrequited "thing" for a fellow service member?  If it is proper to keep men and women housed separately do we now go to four sets of housing.  Men who don't engage in homosexual activity, Men who do, Women who don't, Women who do?  Practically speaking Obama how do you get past the fundamental sexual tension that will be present the minute some make it known?

2. Do you expect the military system or the civilian courts to deal with the influx of phony sexual harassment cases to follow?

Consider this issue a prediction of sorts, but take it to the bank that those who engage in open homosexuality will feel the freedom if not the need begin to portray themselves as victims of harassment pretty much anytime something doesn't go their way.  And it may not require anything all that severe to trigger it.  A drill instructor gets a little too rough in his language while trying to beat the "sissy" out of a recruit in basic training, or Officer Candidate School and the backlog will commence.

3. Will base commanders be required to host "pride" events that allow for similar conduct to the x-rated displays that go on in the nation's cities each year?

There was much discussion in the Senate and House hearings about the issue of morale, the breakdown of structure, the significance of discipline and the ability to command respect and a readied force.  Nothing related to any "pride" event ever held comes close to anything resembling respect, discipline, or structure.  There is a reason our best volunteer to serve their nation, and it has nothing to do with speedos, bump or grind.

4. Will all other sexual conduct be made legal as well?

It is still a crime to commit adultery in active military duty, and even more so for officers.  How can you possibly be allowing for the flamboyancy of effeminate male soldiers to engage in sexual conduct and their notorious ever wandering lust for the new on one hand, and hold court martial for those who have discreetly hidden their sexual escapades while destroying their families?

There are many legitimate reasons why the military is not the place to run experiments on the restructuring of the society at large.

And calex59 asks, "What happens when a gay officer gets the hots for one, or more, of his men (likewise a lesbian officer for one of her troops)?  Will the officer show favoritism?  You bet they will.  What if a straight trooper, male or female, turns down the advances of a gay officer?

Social engineering has no place in America's military.  Mark my word, nothing good will come from this.

Obama's Actions Delusional And Tyrannical
Charlie Butts and Jody Brown are reporting that a  conservative black pastor is calling for the church and church leadership to rise up and fight against the Obama administration's decision to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court.

Two federal courts have ruled DOMA unconstitutional.  That means the ruling will stand in those circuit districts if no one steps up to the plate to defend that law -- and with Barack Obama's decision last week, that means the Justice Department and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have backed away from the plate.

The move by the White House prompted the leader of a coalition of 34,000 black churches to state that Obama "has violated the Christian faith" by failing to uphold Jesus' teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman.  Rev. Anthony Evans, head of the National Black Church Initiative, also stated black churches must "reassess their extraordinary support" for Obama.

Dr. Ken Hutcherson, senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Washington, tells OneNewsNow that Obama is not only violating a basic Christian principle, he is flying in the face of the will of the people.
    

"For him to stand up and say that he's not going to defend the law [DOMA] tells me how much he is overstepping his bounds in the aspects of going against the people's will -- and we've seen that over and over and over again the last two years."

    
Asked it that could that be considered arrogance, Hutcherson responded: "It's past arrogance. I think it's delusional."

The church, counsels Hutcherson, could help bring that attitude to a halt.  "Our church is getting so anemic today that there's just no power in it," he laments.  "And I think that this is a call for shepherds -- for leaders of the church, for leaders of ministries -- to say that we need to band together again and put a stop to this type of tyranny towards Christian values and views."

Hutcherson urges people to encourage Congress to intervene, which it can do, to provide a legal defense of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Sex Change You Can Believe In
Ben Johnson says Barack Obama is the most pro-transgender president ever.

Call it sex-change you can believe in.  This author reported Tuesday that Barack Obama had held the first-ever White House transgender conference last Friday.  The Peopleís House conducted this proud meeting in such complete secrecy that we know the identity of only one attendee, Mara Keisling of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), a group lobbying for "a comprehensive civil rights bill that protects people from discrimination based on gender identity."  The measure, which would forbid private individuals from refusing to do business with or rent a home to a cross-dresser, is but one of many extremist policies that earned NCTE a meeting with White House brass.  The U.S. Civil Rights Commission is now planning to "hold its first-ever hearing to specifically address the civil rights of LGBT people."  Despite these "firsts," the Obama administration has already advanced transgender interest groups through a series of executive fiats.  If you donít believe me, believe The Huffington Post.  It remarked that a recent housing proposal "marks the latest in a string of Obama administration attempts to enhance gay rights through federal regulation."  Some of the administrationís actions literally redefine the governmentís definition of the family, stifle any opposition to gender confusion, and encourage schoolchildren to think of transgender practices as normal and mainstream (or else).

Last January, Obama named Amanda Simpson the Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department.  Simpson, who served as a test pilot and longtime employee of Raytheon before becoming a "woman," sits on NCTEís board of directors.  The move was thought to be the first-ever transgender presidential appointment.

During his budget showdown with John Boehner, Obama (and Boehner) managed to see that LGBT programs escaped deep budget cuts.  Aside from these two matters, Obama has chosen to act through federal regulation, having government agencies write new rules without sullying his own hands.  His administration has proven indefatigable in pursuing transgender concerns.

Obama Administration Instructs Schools On Forming Gay Student Clubs
    
    
CNSNews is reporting that Education Secretary Arne Duncan spoke at the "Federal LGBT Youth Summit" on Tuesday by video, stating that his Department was sending a letter to school districts detailing the policies and laws available to ensure that homosexual student groups can form and function on public school campuses.  LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.
