DEMS TO THWART BUSH PICKS
Overriding Hand of God Needed!
With a new Democrat Senate majority and new Democratic committee chairmen, passage of legislation that passes Biblical muster will require the overriding Hand of God. Moreover, Democrat leaders have pronounced President Bush's conservative agenda and his conservative judicial appointees DOA (dead on arrival).
The Constitution gives the President power to appoint federal judges and Supreme Court justices and the Senate power of "advice and consent." The founders intended that Senate be able to prevent the appointment of "unfit characters." But Democrats have gone beyond the Founder's intent to veto nominees with whom they politically disagree.
In April, Senate Democrats met with left-wing intellectuals like Harvard law professor, Laurence Tribe, to strategize over how to shut down the judicial confirmation process. Tom Jipping, legal expert for the Free Congress Foundation, predicts that with a Senate majority they will succeed.
Even before Democrats became the majority party and under threat of a prolonged Senate fight, President Bush deliberately removed three conservatives from his first batch of judicial appointees, including Rep. Christopher Cox (R-CA).
In four months, only 56 of 490 top Bush administration officials needing Senate approval have been confirmed. This does not include the over 275 top posts for which the president has not even submitted candidates for Senate consent. By keeping his administration leaderless, Senate Democrats can hamstring President Bush.
We are now in a pitched spiritual battle akin to the Florida recount fight. The stakes are similar. The need for highly focused prayer is as great now as then.
Please Join Us in Believing, Overcoming
Heavenly Father, we are under Your righteous judgments. May we REPENT, PRAY & SEEK YOUR FACE. By Your sovereign power, NEUTRALIZE Democrat plans to obstruct the appointment process. Give President Bush COURAGE to appoint Godly candidates despite Democrat tactics. CAUSE God-fearing judges and other godly appointees TO BE CONFIRMED. In Jesus' Name. Amen (Ex 18:21; Josh 1:9; 1 Sam 2:9-10; 2 San 10:12; 1 Chr 22:13; 2 Chr 7:14; 14:11; Ps 12:1-5; 119:62; Ph 1:10).
