Senate fail

Late Thursday, on the eve of the March for Life, the Senate failed to pass the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2019."
 
After Majority Leader McConnell invoked cloture on the bill, pro-abortion Democrats united to filibuster the bill preventing an up or down vote. Pro-life Democrat Senators Bob Casey (PA) and Joe Manchin (WV) voted for the funding ban, while pro-abortion Republican Senators Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) voted against the measure.

The "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2019" would have established a permanent, government-wide prohibition of taxpayer funding for abortion. Similar policies, such as the Hyde Amendment, currently require annual reauthorization and do not apply to ObamaCare.

March for Life 2


Today is the 46th Annual March for Life!

Right now on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., many tens of thousands of pro-life advocates are voicing their support for life while calling for the end of legalized abortion in the United States. In 2018, approximately 42 million abortions were performed around the world making abortion the leading cause of death during the year.

My prior message below contains details on how pro-abortionists are pushing abortion on demand in our nation and internationally while legal cases that threaten Roe v Wade are making their way through the courts. Liberty Counsel is deeply engaged in supporting life from conception to natural death. See below – Mat.

Unique from Day One

January is the Sanctity of Human Life Month. Tomorrow, many tens of thousands of pro-life advocates will converge on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the 46th Annual March for Life. This year's theme is "Unique from Day One" and conveys the message that each life begins at conception. The stated purpose of the march is to end abortion by "uniting, educating and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square."

From the founding of Liberty Counsel in 1989, we have been dedicated to protecting and defending human life, from the moment of conception until natural death.

Liberty Counsel's legal team is aggressively engaged right now in pro-life actions against Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, the federal government and state legislatures. Your support makes our work possible. Please read my urgent pro-life update below – Mat.

We wouldn't need a wall if...

During one of his recent broadcasts, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh addressed the debate over securing the southern border from a different perspective. He said: "There's nothing un-American about a wall, but it shouldn't be necessary...

We would not need a wall if we enforced the law!  We wouldn't need a wall if we enforced E-Verify and illegals could not get work.  We wouldn't need a wall if we would simply prohibit welfare, health care, and education payments to illegals — even children... 

But the reason we have a crisis is that the Democrats would never agree to any of those things...  If there was no benefit to getting here illegally, they wouldn't try.  This is on us.  This is on the Democrat Party.  This is on everybody benefiting from the suffering of these people and the pretending there are no laws here.
 
That's why a wall has become necessary."

A dark and evil heart

Speaking from the Senate floor last week, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) told President Trump that he has "a dark and evil heart" and "You, Mr. President, have created a crisis, a humanitarian crisis."
 
Senator Merkley joins many of his Democrat colleagues in demonizing the President while blaming him for the decades-old issues of illegal immigration and border security. Outrageous!
 
Liberty Counsel is standing with President Trump in calling on Congress to stop their stonewalling and build the tangible wall (or, fence) that's included in President Trump's comprehensive border security plan.  If you haven't already weighed in on this matter of national security, please click here to send an immediate message to members of Congress. See my important message below – Mat.

What's changed?

President Trump has presented a comprehensive border security appropriation package to Congress for  approval. In a highly questionable response, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls the President's plan "immoral" while Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats "[J]ust don't want Trump's wall."

A matter of national and personal security!

America is facing a dangerous national security threat and humanitarian crisis unless our elected officials rise to the challenge of fulfilling the government's most basic obligations: physical safety, economic security, essential public services, and the uniform protection of our laws.
 
That's why Liberty Counsel is asking every concerned American to call on Congress to pass the president's comprehensive border security package and FUND THE WALL (aka “the barrier or fence") -- and END the government shutdown.

Liberty Counsel's Fax Barrage system targets your state's congressional leaders, as well as House and Senate leaders who must hear your voice in this key budgetary fight over border security.

Unshakably dedicated to life

January is the Sanctity of Human Life Month. From the founding of Liberty Counsel in 1989, we have been unshakably dedicated to protecting and defending human life, from the moment of conception until natural death. Liberty Counsel has fought many court battles and has filed numerous briefs to protect the unborn and to legally defend the inherent value of human life.

I argued before the United States Supreme Court in 1994 in defense of pro-life sidewalk counselors.

SPLC's "wreck"and "destroy" campaign

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is on the receiving end of another lawsuit following their recent actions taken to "wreck" and "destroy" a person they consider to be motivated by "hate."

As you may know, Liberty Counsel and me, personally, are among those the SPLC seeks to destroy through unsubstantiated lawsuits they filed against us and other outrageous tactics like their "hate group" smear. We must unite to stand against this radically aggressive attacker.  Please see below – Mat.

The cross at a crossroads


Peace Cross
Five miles from U.S. Supreme Court in suburban Maryland stands the 40 foot tall "Peace Cross," a World War I memorial located on a small plot of land in the middle of a major three-way intersection. It is viewed by many thousands of visitors and passing drivers every day.
 
As reported on Christian NewsWire, the "Peace Cross" was built in 1925 as a tribute to local men who died during World War I. The Gold-Star Mothers who designed the memorial in 1919 chose the shape to recall the crosses marking the countless American graves on the Western Front of that war. It was paid for by local families and businesses. It stands on a piece of land that has been owned since 1961 by a state commission.
