  bureaucratsGlobal Bureaucrats to Inspect U.S. Elections
According to The Daily Caller article Global Bureaucrats Invited by Obama to Inspect U.S. Elections, hundreds of foreigners, including Russians, will be traveling to the U.S. next month to observe the American electoral process. The article states, "This sort of international probing can be interpreted as a shot to American sovereignty, or at least a sign of distrust in the overarching democratic principles and practices the country cherishes and exercises."

  versedA Must-Read for How to Handle
Today's Political and Social Problems
CNP Member Jim Garlow wrote this timely book titled Well Versed: Biblical Answers to Today's Tough Issues. In it, he lays out the scriptural underpinnings for 30 political and social problems. The book was hand delivered to all 535 Members of Congress in July.

It is truly an "election year handbook." Newt Gingrich said, "Well Versed brings the force of the Word of God to the national issues that seem to plague and paralyze this nation. Few pastors have had the tenacity to step into the public arena and declare boldly that God - in the Bible - has the answers for our political challenges."

benghaziTruth About the YouTube Video
Blamed for Benghazi
Kenneth R. Timmerman wrote the book titled Deception: The Making of the YouTube Video Hillary & Obama Blamed for Benghazi to shed light on the YouTube video former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claims sparked the Benghazi attacks back in 2012. Deception reveals:
  1. The infamous video, "Innocence of Muslims," went viral with - and only with - a direct assist from the U.S. government.
  2. Newly-released emails from Hillary's private server show that former White House Aide Sidney Blumenthal helped craft and promote the "Blame-it-on-the-video" narrative.
  3. Left-wing journalists knowingly put out false information about the filmmaker calling him an "Israeli Jew" with "100 Jewish donors," further enflaming passions across the Middle East to advance Hillary's agenda and bolster the coverup.
  4. Google became a willing partner of the Obama administration in promoting the video, coordinating their historic copyright case with a top aide to Hillary.
  call Christian Leaders Call for Unity Against Progressive Agenda & Funding - Sign Letter
Kelly Monroe Kullberg
This month more than 100 of America's foremost evangelical and Catholic leaders released a powerful letter urging Progressive "faith" groups to turn away from the liberal political funding of George Soros and his allies, and their agenda that weakens the poor, the Church and the nation. Co-signers include lead author and CNP Member Kelly Monroe Kullberg, Alveda King, CNP Member James Garlow, CNP Member Mat Staver, George Barna, Miles McPherson, CNP Member Jerry Boykin, Eric Metaxas and CNP Member Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. If you are interested in signing this letter, please do so here. It was quickly signed by a thousand citizens.

Kelly, the group's spokesperson, said, "Hopefully this Call to Repentance will awaken the Church and nation to the anti-Christian funding and agenda behind Progressive "faith" fronts. Our letter is the Church speaking truth to power. Our hope is to return to a true gospel witness grounded in the whole counsel of Scripture. Biblical wisdom, not Progressive policies, enforced by big government, is the highest love for human beings."

Here is an article about the letter in The Stream
  houseHouse Unanimously Votes to End
IRS Forfeiture Abuse
Representatives Peter Roskam (R-IL) and
 Joseph Crowley (D-NY) with IRS Victims
On September 22, the House of Representatives voted 415-0 to unanimously pass the Clyde-Hirsch-Sowers-RESPECT Act, which reins in IRS abuse of taxpayers and small businesses. Under current law, the IRS can seize people's assets without any proof of wrongdoing. This was supposed to stop criminal enterprises and recover ill-gotten gains. But the IRS has used it to seize the bank accounts of people suspected of 'structuring'- that is, of making cash deposits worth less than $10,000 to avoid reporting requirements. This bill prevents this kind of IRS abuse from happening in the future. It was introduced by U.S Representatives Peter Roskam and Joseph Crowley. The name of the bill derives from Andrew Clyde, Jeffrey, Richard, and Mitch Hirsch, and Randy Sowers - all small business owners victimized by the IRS. Please read this press release from Representative Roskam's Office for more information.  
  immigrationMass Immigration and Public Education
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released a new report this month, The Elephant in the Classroom: Mass Immigration's Impact on Public Education. The report estimates that it currently costs public school districts across the United States $59.8 billion to educate the millions of school age children of illegal aliens, refugees and legal immigrant students. Public schools must educate this burgeoning population due to a federal government mandate. To address this dire situation, the report recommends:
  1. Overturn Plyer v. Doe
  2. Amend the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act
  3. Remove Incentives that Attract Families into the U.S. Illegally
  4. End "Sanctuary"Policies
  5. Limit Overall Immigration
  6. Secure the Borders 
  tpaTaxpayer Funding of the
World Health Organization
Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) also released a new report this month, World Health Organization in need of intensive care: World Taxpayers Funding Failing International Organization. This report details the public funding of the World Health Organization and its sub-agency - the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The FCTC is the United Nation's public health arm. A massive amount of American taxpayer money is funding these entities that have shown over and over through their activities that they do not value press-freedom, transparency and intellectual property. David Williams, President of TPA, commented, "Taxpayers shouldn't be funding activities that promote values and actions inconsistent with the principles of the United States."
