PRESS RELEASE: New Movie Exposes Government Invasion of American Families 

Washington, D.C., November 17, 2011 –

Today, ParentalRights.Org released an online docudrama, Overruled: Government Invasion of Your Parental Rights, which outlines today’s dangers facing American parents in their ability to direct the upbringing and education of their children.

The film, which runs 35 minutes at OverruledMovie.com, focuses on three real-life American family cases in which parental rights were egregiously violated by the government: a medical care case, an educational freedom case, and a religious freedom case. The movie also warns against adoption of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child. This treaty would override virtually all child and family laws in the United States and grant ultimate authority to international bureaucrats. Overruled describes why the adoption of the proposed Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the only means to halt the parental rights violations which are taking place all over America.

i
“American parents just assume that their traditional right to make sound decisions for their children is fully protected in our legal system,” said Michael Farris, President of ParentalRights.org. He added, “Overruled reveals how precarious our rights are in today’s legal climate – and the movie makes it clear that we can and must fix the problem before it is too late.”

i
Fortunately, the American people overwhelmingly support traditional parental rights. A Zogby poll last year that surveyed over 2,000 people found that 93% of Americans agree with the traditional definition of parental rights, which is the ability to raise their children free from government interference so long as no abuse or neglect is taking place.

Farris said, “We need to capitalize on this strong support all across the country and pass the Parental Rights Amendment to prevent government officials from unnecessarily interfering with families.” Scott Scharpen, the film’s Executive Producer and chairman of the board of ParentalRights.Org, was proud to announce that Overruled is presented by ParentalRights.Org, a non-profit grassroots organization focused on passing the Parental Rights Amendment. Overruled is available online free of charge at OverruledMovie.com.

Conference on the U.S. Constitution with Rick Green


As you know, these are very challenging times. The push to alter the legal and political landscape has never been more intense – putting at risk our Christian beliefs and constitutional freedoms. While the ACLJ works full time to preserve your God-given rights, I want to share how you can better know your rights.

Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

P.S. If you know someone who would like a copy of this booklet, please forward this, or post a link to our order page to Facebook and encourage your friends and family to know their rights as well. Thank you.

This is a must read because it is probably one of the best things the Smithsonian will ever do:

By literally cutting and pasting biblical passages demonstrating the life and lessons of Jesus Christ from several Bibles, Thomas Jefferson put together a book that he titled “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth” during his retirement in 1820. (more…)

This is definitely a great FL. Governor Rick Scott is doing. Congrats!!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                             February 10, 2011

Florida Governor Rick Scott Issues Proclamation in Support of Marriage

Encourages citizens, churches, businesses, organizations and community leaders to strengthen marriage

“We are thrilled to see Florida recognizing the importance of marriage to the men, women and children of our great state,” said John Stemberger, president of Florida Family Council who also serves as Chairman of the statewide Strong Marriages Florida Coalition.  “Governor Rick Scott’s National Marriage Week Proclamation is a strong statement about how the governor views marriage and its importance to the economic well being of this state and to its people.”

National Marriage Week USA, which takes place February 7-14, 2011, is part of an international effort that is beginning to gain momentum around the country as more and more people realize how crucial healthy marriages are to society.  Florida joins other states as well as other Foreign Countries to recognize and promote marriage as a great social and public good for individuals and communities.

Governor Scott’s proclamation states, in part, “…A healthy, loving marriage deserves our special respect because it provides irreplaceable personal happiness and creates the safest place for children to flourish and to enjoy the full emotional, moral, educational and financial benefits of both parents…”

The benefits of marriage are legion Social science research has repeatedly shown that married moms and dads raising their children together is the best possible environment for children’s safety and positive physical, mental and emotional development.  Married men and women appear to be the greatest wealth-producing entity we have.  Marriage benefits minorities economically and reduces the likelihood that women and children will experience poverty.

“The Governor’s proclamation sets Florida apart as a national leader in recognition of marriage as a great good for men, women and children,” said John Stemberger, “In our work with churches and communities around Florida, we champion marriage as the one institution within our society that consistently provides men, women and children with a better life.  It builds strong communities and churches.  And it is at the core of the basic economic unit of the family.”

“As Governor Scott recognizes in his proclamation,” said Stemberger, “the breakdown of marriage takes a great emotional, physical and financial toll on the well-being of the family.  There’s no denying that family breakdown takes a great toll on the financial well-being of the state, as well.  Florida taxpayers spend 1.9 billion dollars a year on the costs of family fragmentation as a result of divorce and unwed child bearing. That Florida’s governor recognizes the foundational role marriages plays in our society and economy gives us great hope for his agenda to rebuild Florida’s economy.”

Now, get to work!

This the The Heritage’s Foundation’s checklist for the incoming 112th U.S. Congress. This will bring us back to the Constitution:

Published on November 8, 2010 by Edwin Feulner, Ph.D.

The people have spoken. On Election Day, they cried out against Washington’s reckless spending, stifling regulations, rising taxes, soaring debt and looming takeover of health care. For too long, Washington elites have assumed they knew best – that government was the all-purpose solution to every problem, real or perceived.

But the American people have collective wisdom, expressed forcefully at the ballot box. Repudiating the “change” that denied our character and tradition, they demanded that Congress take a new direction. They called for an American renewal that taps our values.

That message was heard around the world. Friend and foe alike now realize that Americans remain a strong and free people, unbowed by adversity and unwilling to exchange their birthright of liberty for a perpetual stew of bureaucratic rule and government dependency.

Let’s be clear. Congress must get to work. Our lawmakers have a choice: Answer the call of renewal or betray the hopes of the American people.

To meet this mandate from the American people, Congress should take five simple actions. These five priorities represent the bare minimum of what is expected. More needs to be done to get our nation back on the right track, but these actions are a good start:

Freeze and cut spending: Congress should immediately freeze discretionary budget authority at 2010 levels and cut at least $170 billion from the federal budget for fiscal 2012. This is only a first step. In the past four years, Congress has approved more spending than even the bureaucrats can handle. Congress must immediately survey the unobligated balances of all appropriations made in the past four years, reclaim those unspent taxpayer funds and use them to reduce the deficit.

Repeal Obamacare: Congress must repeal Obamacare immediately. Until Congress can get the president to sign a law to do so, it must withhold funding, block key provisions and override regulations carrying out Obamacare. Only after this misguided “reform” is rejected can Congress undertake a careful, thoughtful legislative process to make practical adjustments that allow the free market to provide affordable, effective health care insurance choices.

Stop the Obama tax increases: Congress must reject the tax increases that will occur when the tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 expire at the end of next month. That means making the cuts permanent, thereby helping the economy grow and creating more jobs.

Protect America: Congress must pass a budget resolution that won’t put our troops at risk or leave Americans vulnerable. It can do this by providing for defense an average of $720 billion per year for each of the next five fiscal years, in addition to the funding needed for ongoing contingency operations. Congress must make the defense budget as efficient as possible and reinvest dollars achieved from reforms in the military to offset the cost of modernizing and developing next-generation equipment.

Get control of government: Congress must immediately re-establish legislative accountability by posting complete legislation, ending earmarks, reviewing all unauthorized programs and respecting constitutional limits on government. Congress must check executive branch overreach with aggressive oversight, roll back recent government interventions, stop unnecessary administrative regulations and sunset new ones, restrict bureaucrats’ rule-making authority and override executive orders.

By doing these things, Washington can fulfill its electoral mandate and meet its constitutional responsibilities. Our elected representatives can then prove they’ve truly heard the American people.

WOW. What a well written and effective reminder to us about where this great nation came from.

Christmas, 1776.

Summer had begun with strong declarations of noble ideals, but by winter the cause of liberty seemed to be at low ebb. Having suffered defeat after defeat, many had all but given up hope. It looked like freedom would succumb yet again, as it had throughout history, to the forces of authoritarianism and tyranny.

Then, on Christmas Day, 1776, a small band of colonial forces under the command of Gen. George Washington, having retreated all the way from New York, again crossed the Delaware River and brought battle at Trenton, New Jersey. Washington not only won the battle but regained the initiative and turned the war in the patriots’ favor. One week later, Washington defeated the British at Princeton and forced the enemy to withdraw, preventing its advance on Philadelphia, seat of the Continental Congress.

When it announced itself to the world in 1776, the United States of America was little more than an alliance of 13 small colonies on a barren continent, thousands of miles from their ancestral homeland, surrounded by hostile powers.

Now, well over two centuries after winning independence from the British Empire, America is the freest, wealthiest, most powerful nation on Earth. Along the way it established sovereign nationhood, settled a continent and more and brought unprecedented prosperity to its citizens. It survived a devastating Civil War that threatened its very life, abolished slavery and raised up the emancipated to be citizens equal to their one-time masters. It triumphed in two world wars fought on foreign soil and a decades-long struggle against worldwide communism that, 20 years ago, led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of the Soviet Union.

What accounts for this monumental success? The founding of the United States was indeed revolutionary. But not in the sense of replacing one set of rulers with another, or overthrowing the institutions of society. John Adams queried:

What do we mean by the American Revolution? The revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people. . . . This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.

Our revolution was about the ideas upon which a new nation was to be established. Permanent truths “applicable to all men and all times,” as Abraham Lincoln later said, proclaimed that principle rather than will would be the ultimate ground of government.

What is truly revolutionary about America is that, for the first time in history, these universal ideas became the foundation of a system of government and its political culture. Because of these principles, rather than despite them, the American Revolution culminated not in tyranny but a constitutional government that has long endured.

To this day, 233 years after Washington and his men crossed the Delaware, these principles–proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and promulgated by the Constitution–still define us as a nation and inspire us as a people. These principles are responsible for a prosperous, just nation unlike any other. They are the highest achievements of our tradition, a beacon to those who strive for freedom but also a warning to tyrants and despots everywhere. Because of these principles, not despite them, America achieved greatness.

The Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson later recorded, was “neither aiming at originality of principle or sentiment, nor yet copied from any particular and previous writing, [but] was intended to be an expression of the American mind.”

As Americans, our aim must be a clear expression and forthright defense of the nation’s principles in the public square so that they become, once again, an expression of the American mind. Despite constant scorn by academic elites, political leaders and the popular media, most Americans still believe in the uniqueness of this country and respect the Founders’ noble ideas. They may fail a test of particulars – quick: when did Washington cross the Delaware? – but they overwhelmingly want to know about this nation and its meaning.

We must give voice to all those who have not given up on their country’s experiment in self-government, have not concluded the cause of liberty and limited constitutional government is lost and have not accepted America’s decline as inevitable.

The goal must be to restore the liberating principles of the American Founding as the defining public philosophy of our nation. As it was for most of American history, so it can be again.

The joy of this wonderful season is about new beginnings and the eternal promise of redemption. We Americans have the immeasurable benefit, the providential gift, of having inherited a great country.

We must never forget its confidence, optimism and promise, its endless capacity for renewal, are contained in our dedication to the enduring principles of liberty with which all men are endowed by their Creator.

May you and yours have a merry and blessed Christmas.

Why does America have to be SO messed up! What is the government afraid of?

Obama has spent over $1 million  to seal all of his personal identifying records. Seems like he is hiding something, eh?

You know what? In Brazil, they impeached one of their presidents because of corruption. Why can’t we do the same? This sure is corrupt. Where is government’s protection when we need it? We all ready KNOW Obama is not a natural born AMERICAN citizen. We don’t need to find out more. WE THE PEOPLE CAN STOP THIS. Now!

Top Ten Reasons Why Christians Should Vote:

1. Voting publicly recognizes that we submit to the authority of the political system in our nation as established by God. Romans 13:1-7

4. Voting shows that we care deeply about who our leaders are as we are urged to offer prayer and intercession on their behalf. 1 Timothy 2:1,2

5. Voting is a simple yet significant way we can do something about politics in our nation. ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing, Edmund Burke. Psalms 34:14

6. Voting makes a difference in the same way a grain of salt makes a difference, and that is how we are to influence our society for good. Matthew 5:13

7. Voting is a privilege not to be taken for granted. Those of us who reap the benefits of living in a democracy should play a part in upholding democracy.

8. Not voting is a form of voting, as it will influence the outcome. We need to take responsibility for our actions, as well as our lack of actions. I Peter 1:13

9. Voting is part of our stewardship to use all the resources we have been given in ways that honor God; to waste a vote is to squander a gift.

10. Voting is Biblical. Jesus commands us to fulfill our responsibility to the civil authority. Matthew 22:21
