President Obama is Keeping His Promises

Since Inauguration Day, President Obama has kept many of the promises he made during his campaign. Here are the things he has already done, in the short time between Nov. ‘08 and Mar. 17, ‘09, which shows he really does prioritize:

11/5/2008- Obama selects pro-abortion Rep. Rahm Emanuel as his White House Chief of Staff. Emanuel has a 0% pro-life voting record according to National Right to Life.

11/19/2008 - Obama picks pro-abortion former Sen. Tom Daschle as his Health and Human Services Secretary. Daschle has a long pro-abortion voting record according to National Right to Life. He is a lapsed Catholic. Thankfully, he withdrew his nomination when it was disclosed he cheated on his taxes.

11/20/2008 - Obama chooses former NARAL legal director Dawn Johnsen to serve as a member of his Department of Justice Review Team. Later, he finalizes her appointment as the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Legal Counsel in the Obama administration.

11/24/2008 - Obama appoints Ellen Moran, the former director of the pro-abortion group Emily's List as his White House communications director. Emily's List only supported candidates who favored taxpayer funded abortions and opposed a partial-birth abortion ban.

11/24/2008 - Obama puts former Emily's List board member Melody Barnes in place as his director of the Domestic Policy Council.

11/30/2008 - Obama named pro-abortion Sen. Hillary Clinton as the Secretary of State. Clinton has an unblemished pro-abortion voting record and has supported making unlimited abortions an international right.

12/10/2008 - Obama selects pro-abortion former Clinton administration official Jeanne Lambrew to become the deputy director of the White House Office of Health Reform. Planned Parenthood is "excited" about the selection.

1/5/2009 - Obama picks pro-abortion Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine as the chairman of the Democratic Party.

1/6/2009 - Obama chooses Thomas Perrelli, the lawyer who represented Terri Schiavo’s husband Michael in his efforts to kill his disabled wife, as the third highest attorney in the Justice Department.

1/22/2009 - Releases statement restating support for Roe v. Wade decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions and has resulted in at least 50 million abortions since 1973.

1/23/2009 - Forces taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. Decison to overturn Mexico City Policy sends part of $457 million to pro-abortion organizations.

1/26/2009 - Obama nominee for Deputy Secretary of State, James B. Steinberg, tells members of the Senate that taxpayers should be forced to fund abortions. Nominee erroneously says limits on abortion funding are unconstitutional.

1/29/2009 - President Obama nominates pro-abortion David Ogden as Deputy Attorney General.

2/12/2009 - Obama nominates pro-abortion Elena Kagan to serve as Solicitor General.

3/9/2009 - President Barack Obama signed an executive order forcing taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research.

3/10/2009 - Obama announces the creation of a new foreign policy position to focus on women's issues. He names Melanne Verveer, an abortion advocate, to occupy the post.

3/10/2009 - Reverses an executive order to press for more research into ways of obtaining embryonic stem cells without harming human life. The order Obama scrapped would have promoted new forms of stem cell research.

3/11/2009 - Obama signed an executive order establishing a new agency within his administration known as the White House Council on Women and Girls. Obama's director of public liaison at the White House, Tina Tchen, an abortion advocate, became director of it.

We must pray more, and place all our hope in Jesus and work as if our lives depended on it...they do! Let’s not forget Jesus’ warning from St Matthew: "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves" (Matt. 7:15).

I received a call today from a woman at my church. She wanted to know if I knew that President Obama had started the process of tearing down the Conscience Clause. She wanted to know if our church body knew. We discussed the overwhelming amount of evil initiatives that Obama had embarked on since he became president. I thaught I understood the magnitude, until I read this day-by-day assessment. It is stunning and sickening. A clear testament that we need to be united in prayer. A clear testament that Abortion Recovery ministry is going to be needed more than ever in the months, years and decades to come.
