Senator Exposes Clinton's
Half-Truths & Distortions Concerning CTBT
On Thursday, October 14, 1999, President Clinton held a press conference regarding the Senate's rejection of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Clinton angrily lashed out at the Senate, using inflammatory language in an attempt to persuade the American public that those who voted against the CTBT were "irresponsible" and "reckless." In response, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) issued a press release in which he cited the many misrepresentations, half-truths, distortions and falsehoods made by the President. In this press release, dated October 16, 1999, Sen. Inhofe gives a line-by-line analysis of Clinton's statement to the news media and details 36 times the President was wrong.
To read Inhofe's eight-page press release visit his web site:
"Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in Heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above allÍ and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all" (1 Chr 29:11&12). We thank You and give You praise for stopping the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty from being ratified. Continue to give strength and favor to Your servants in Congress, such as Sen. Inhofe.
The Money-Making Harve$t of Aborted Babie$
As early as Wednesday, October 20, 1999, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) will re-introduce the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBAB), Senate Bill 1692. Life Dynamics, a pro-life organization, has uncovered another reason why the abortion industry does not want partial-birth abortions ended. Besides fearing that PBAB will create a domino effect and ultimately stop all forms of abortion, abortionists fear the ban will affect their huge money-making industry of harvesting intact fetal bodies. Life Dynamics has found hard-copy evidence of the cross-country selling of baby parts, which includes detailed dissection orders, as well as a pricing brochure assuring "the freshest tissue available."

Almighty God, is there no shame in America? Why is there no conviction of this sin causing the Church to cry out to You day and night on behalf of the unborn? Lord, how long will You allow such atrocities to continue before Your people repent? Grant a spirit of intercession to come upon Your Church in America. Couple this with a broken and contrite heart, crying out to You for the sake of the children in the womb. (Deut 32:4&5; Ps 51:17; Rev 3:14-22)
Federal Troops Now Domestic Law Officers?
Since 1878, the Posse Comitatus Act has barred federal troops from executing domestic law enforcement functions -- UNTIL NOW. Provisions to significantly change the Posse Comitatus Act are contained in the House and Senate Defense Appropriations bills, and specifically in an amendment introduced in February by Rep. James Traficant (D-OH). The Traficant amendment is now being considered in a joint House-Senate conference committee as part of the total Defense Authorization Bill. It would authorize the Secretary of Defense to assign members of the Armed Forces, "under certain circumstances and subject to certain conditions, to assist the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the United States Customs Service in the performance of border protection functions" and also to prevent entry of "drug traffickers and terrorists." Secretary of Defense William Cohen has remarked, "[The military must] deal with the threats we are most likely to face. The American people should not be concerned about it. They should welcome it."
With rising concerns about the role of the Army's Delta Force during the Waco debacle, and the recent killing of an 18-year old goat herder by a Marine assigned to assist the U.S. Border Patrol, Congress should be trying to stop such bills. Helping to strengthen the 1878 act is a better use of their time in office.

Father God, You are our Shelter, our Refuge, our Rock. You protect Your people and grant peace to those who follow Your Word and Law. Grant those in positions of leadership wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of You since they are Your ministers. Stop Traficant's amendment and prevent the Posse Comitatus Act from being weakened. In Jesus' Name we pray. AMEN! (Ps 2:10-12; 5:11&12; 9:9&10; 14:all; Ezr 7:25; Rom 13:1-6)
