Samsung Profiling!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a new cell phone that “self radicalizes” and spontaneously catches on fire.  Samsung has issued a recall on the Note 7.  In other words Samsung is profiling and detaining these phones.  They want them off the streets.  (You can disregard the phones that blow up in the office – That’s just work place violence.)  On the other hand there are a lot of good Galaxy Note 7 that are law abiding and don’t catch on fire.  The problem is we don’t’ know which they are.  If the Democrats were running Samsung their presidential candidate would be calling for a 500 percentage increase in number of Galaxy Note 7s while the Republican candidate would call for extreme vetting of the phones.  After all, you cannot condemn a whole cell phone model for the sake of a few self-radicalizing bad apples can you?

Values Voter Summit September 9, 2016

September 8-11, 2016, the Values Voter Summit 2016 was held in Washington DC.  On September 9, Presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke, outlining a seven point plan that was of special interest to the Christian community.  The following is a summation of his speech.

  1.  Repeal of the Johnson Amendment
    The Johnson Amendment is a 1954 change in to the U.S. tax code that prohibits tax-exempt organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates.  Then Senator Lyndon Johnson manipulated Congress into an amendment to a bill that disallowed non-profit organizations free speech rights by disallowing these organizations the voice to endorse politicians.  The result has been Pastors, Priests and Rabbis have been silenced for fear of loosing their tax exempt status.
  2. Repeal and Replace Obamacare
    Mr. Trump pointed out the failure of Obamacare on several levels.  Costs have not decreased, we didn’t get to keep our doctors, we didn’t get to keep our insurance.
  3. School Choice
    Mr. Trump pledged $20 billion toward school choice and pointed out that African American students are often placed in failing schools perpetuating the cycle of poverty.  He said he would support homeschooling, which instills pride in the student and supports religious values.
  4. Supreme Court Justices
    Mr. Trump pointed out that religious liberty has been sacrificed to this administration.  He said three to five Supreme Court judges could be appointed over that next few years.  He has announced a list of conservative judges he would appoint.
  5. Restoration of Relationship with Israel
    Mr. Trump pointed out the deteriorated relationship between the US and Israel and said he would see that our country would again support the nation of Israel
  6. National Security
    Mr. Trump pointed out North Korea’s advances in nuclear capability and the $1.7 billion in cash given to Iran.  Mr. Trump pointed out the disaster given the world by ISIS and the Obama-Clinton’s administrations fail to adequately address the issue.  He pointed out the “bleaching” of the Clinton emails and the destruction of 13 cell phones owned by Mrs. Clinton.
  7. The Economy
    Mr. Trump promised deep tax cuts for families and businesses along with support of American energy.  He promised a curtailment of regulations and a renegotiation of NAFTA.

In closing, Mr. Trump quoted 1 John 4:12-13:

No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.”

Protest the Harvey Milk Navy Ship

On August 19, 2016, the US Navy is naming a ship, an oiler, after a San Francisco homosexual who preyed on underage boys.  The naming is an insult to the many wonderful men and women who have served this nation and could be honored by such an acknowledgement.

The homosexual community is void of heroes and has used Harvey Milks as an early, high profile pedophile to further their agenda.  Everything from a comic book to an opera have been used to honor him despite his personal life that resulted in one of his victims committing suicide.

A Reason to Celebrate: New Mexico Pro-Life Won One

On June 30, 2016, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled against “Physician-Assisted-Suicide” or“Right to Die” in the Morris v. Brandenburg case. The headline could have read “Court Denies Physicians the Right to Kill Patients.” The vote was unanimous.

The case involved Aja Riggs, a woman who sought to kill herself with the drugs her physician would make available should her cancer, now in recession, return.  Always on the side of playing god, the ACLU called the decision not to allow her death “tragic news.”

Oral arguments that took place in the Supreme Court chambers on October 26, 2105 found the pro-death side amply prepared while the pro-life was not so. The lawyer representing the pro-life community was a former employee of Attorney General Gary King who brought the case forward.

In the Netherlands, where physician-assisted-suicide was first legalized, the taking of life has progressed from suicide for the terminally ill to the mentally ill and to infanticide.

New Mexico is the travel destination for abortions. The Pro-Life community is very grateful that our state will not become the killing field for elderly grandmothers and the infirm.

“A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant,And a time to pluck what is planted;”


What if prayers were offered in every school across America for the police officers killed in Dallas TX last night?

What if we as a nation declared a day of mourning today?

What if instead of blaming guns for this national tragedy we blame the ethos of violence that results in the murder of 5 police officers?

What if every church in America were open today for prayer and fasting?

What if every black man in America went down on his knees and prayed that the tragic road this nation has taken would be averted and a new road filled with grace would be taken?

What if every white man in America went down on his knees and prayer that the tragic road this nation has taken would be averted and a new road filled with grace would be taken?

If then, would God bless America?

Demonic Iconography and American Sensibility

April 18, 2016

Bible readers know Damascus, Syria as the destination of the road on which Paul experienced his conversion.  About 150 miles north-east of Damascus lies the town of Palmyra, Syria. Palmyra is known as “the flower in the desert.”

Palmyra is now held by ISIS and it once held two historic monuments, one the Temple to the fertility god of Baal (or Bel), the other the Roman Arch of Triumph.  Both 2000 year old structures have been destroyed by the occupying ISIS.

An organization called the Institute for Digital Archaeology attempts to preserve the essence of archaeological sites that have been destroyed by war or natural disaster by using advanced digital technology.

Plans were made to build a replica of the entrance to the Baal Temple in New York City and in London.  Without explanation, the organization changed the projectfrom Palmyra’s Temple of Baal to the Roman Arch of Triumph.  No reason for the change was given.

The organizers may have been unaware that such an overt declaration of Baal (satanic) worship in New York City would have been a major affront to our Christian community.

In our world, imagery makes a profound and lasting statement.  A monument to Baal in New York would have sent a strong message about our culture and our times.

We need to thank our God today that America, at least for now, remains a Christian nation at its essence and in its iconography.


God bless America.

Silencing Christianity in the Market Place:
An Interim Report
April 12, 2016

The success of the Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT) rampage continues.  Simply put, we live in an era that has ushered in the end of religious freedom in favor of “gay rights.”  Any resistance to redefining the nation by a sexual perversion is considered an affront, resulting in the silencing of any Christian belief.

The current battles have moved from same-sex “marriage” to the letter T in LGBT – Transgenderism.  While homosexuals comprise only a small percentage of the population, transgenders are less than .01% of the population.  To be a member of the “oppressed transgender minority”, one need only to self-identify.  What follows is the “right” to enter the bathroom of your choice.  Any disagreement is considered discrimination and bigotry.

Note that:

  • Two states have passed have passed religious freedom legislation only to have the legislation vetoed by their governors (Georgia, South Dakota).
  • The Federal Government has forced one school district to comply with transgender demands (Illinois). This is just the start.
  • One state passed “religious freedom” legislation, then amended the bill into a “gay rights” law (Indiana).
  • One state has maintained its “bathroom bill” (North Carolina) but is now being threatened by the federal government with the defunding of several programs.
  • One city overturned its “bathroom bill” (Houston).
  • Only one state has enacted and maintained its “freedom of religion” bill (Mississippi).

The following are the highlights of the transgender agenda.

Bruce Jenner:  Win for the Transgender Community
April 2015  Bruce Jenner
, a 65 year old male who has been married 3 times and who has fathered 6 children, declares himself a woman.  Jenner, who won the decathlon Gold Medal in the 1976 Olympics, appeared on the cover of Vogue Magazine under the title “Call Me Caitlyn.”

Outcome:  Jenner was praised for his “transition” and received ESPN’s Arthur Ash Award for Courage.

Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act,
Complete Turn-Around: Now a “gay rights” law

July 2015  Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act was legislation passed by the state legislature to allow Christians the “free exercise of religion” and to protect citizens against being “substantially burdened as a defense in legal proceedings.”

Outcome:  After a horrendous outcry from national and international businesses and athletic organizations, the legislation was amended, making it an anti-discrimination law favoring the LGBT community.  In other words, a complete turnaround occurred from the law’s original intent.

Houston Equal Rights Ordinance
Rejected by Voters After Being Labeled the “Bathroom Bill”

November 3, 2015  Dallas TX overwhelmingly rejected the city’s ordinance allowing men in women’s bathrooms (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance).  Houston’s City Council passed the legislation spearheaded by lesbian Mayor Annise Parker.  The locals forced the City to place it on the ballet but only after a Texas Supreme Court mandate.

Outcome:  Win for the Community.  However, Houston is now being threatened by such efforts as a call to rescind the NFL Super Bowl which is scheduled to be played there in 2017.

Palatine Township High School 
Forced by the Federal Government to Accommodate a 12 y.o.
Boy in the Girl’s Shower

December 3, 2015  Palatine Township High School, a Chicago School District, had a Civil Rights Discrimination lawsuit filed against it demanding that a 12 year old transgender boy be allowed in the girl’s locker rooms.

Outcome:  Win for the Transgender
The Obama Administration, misrepresenting Title IX federal funding designed to insure the inclusion of girls in sports, interpreted the law as addressing gender discrimination and forced the school district to acquiesce.  Non-compliance would have resulted in the withdrawal of millions of federal dollars that fund athletic programs.  The school board had proposed a number of different measures as compromise solutions.  All were refused.  The boy is allowed in the girls’ locker room despite overwhelming objection from the community.  In a school district of 12,000 students, the Obama administration has forced the accommodation of one very disturbed 12 year old boy.

New Mexico Legislation is Introduced to Protect Religious Freedom

January 2016  Religious Freedom Legislation was introduced to “prevent discriminatory action by a person or a government agency in response to a person’s free exercise of religion.”

Outcome:  The legislation was vehemently attacked by Santa Fe’s homosexual mayor, Javier Gonzales, and the house minority leader, Brian Egolf.  It was not placed on the legislative agenda and was not debated.

South Dakota’s Bill Vetoed by Governor

March 1, 2016  The Governor of South DakotaDennis Daugaard, vetoed a bathroom bill passed by the Senate that would have required biologically-defined sex to determine bathrooms usage.
Outcome:  The governor, wishing to avoid an economic backlash, caved to the transgender agenda.

North Carolina Passes a “Bathroom Bill”
Disallowing Charlotte’s Ordinance to Allow Transgenders in Bathrooms

On March 23, 2016 North Carolina’s Governor Pat McCrory signed into law a “Bathroom Bill” that negates Charlotte’s February 20, 2016, bill that would have allowed transgenders into women’s bathrooms.

Outcome:  An enormous economic backlash has occurred with a reported 120 companies opposing the measure including PayPal, which cancelled a $3.6 million call center employing 400 people in Charlotte.  Popular rock star Bruce Springsteen announced he’d canceled a concert in the state.

Georgia’s Governor Vetoes Legislature’s “Religious Freedom”

March 28, 2016  Under tremendous economic pressure, Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal vetoed the state’s “Religious Freedom” legislation.  The law would have protected pastors and religious nonprofits that didn’t want to participate in same-sex marriage, while including modest protections for individuals and businesses.

Outcome:  The State Legislators are considering calling a special session to override the governor’s veto.

Mississippi Allows Churches, Businesses to Decline Services that
Violate Religious Beliefs

April 5, 2016 Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law legislation that allows churches, religious charities and privately held businesses to decline services to people if doing so would violate their religious beliefs on marriage and gender.

Outcome:  The state’s Attorney General has refused to defend the law, an impeachable offense.  The backlash has just begun.

In addition to New Mexico, states that have considered legislation have been Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Please pray for the nation.

“Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;  They will still be praising You.”
Psalm 84: 4

FINAL REPORT: 2016 New Mexico State Legislative Session

The 2016 New Mexico State Legislative session ended today at noon.  If it demonstrated anything, it again showed that the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual community is well funded, well organized and mobilized.  The legislation offered by the Christian community was met with staunch, well organized opposition at every turn.

Three bills and a memorial were carefully watched by the Christian community.  The issues were religious freedom and opportunities to save the unborn.  Even a memorial with no binding legal authority calling for the collection of data was met with stringent and effective opposition.  Nothing from our side passed.

House Bill 55: An Act Relating to Religious Freedom,” sponsored byRepresentatives David Gallegos and Nora Espinoza, was an attempt to address the overwhelming legal power the homosexual community has to force Christians of conscience into preforming services they find offensive.

Before the session began, Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales, a homosexual, used the occasion of Martin Luther King Day to blast the bill.  That was followed by Santa FeSenator Brian Egolf’s press conference denouncing the bill as “hateful.”  Egolf called the bill “the last gasps of the failing opposition” to homosexual “equality.”  The bill was not heard this session.

Two bills were introduced by our stalwart Senator Bill Sharer from Farmington,Senate Bills 242 and 243.  Both bills placed a twenty week limitation on abortions. One bill, Senate Bill 243, was a “no exceptions to abortion” bill.  The other, Senate Bill 242, would have allowed exceptions for rape or incest.

Senator Sharer gave an impassioned presentation in defense of the bills, sharing photos of his healthy granddaughter born prematurely.  The irony was apparent whenSenator Jacob Candelaria and Senator Mimi Stewart made “pro-life” statements before they voted against the bills.  Senator Candelaria praised his single mother for having given him life, then voted against the life bill.  Mimi Stewart described the tragedy of birthing two sons whose lungs had not developed, then giving birth to her precious daughter before she voted “no.

Representative Rodney Montoya from Farmington proposed “House Memorial 101, to track the number of incidents of a child being born and showing signs of life after an abortion.”  The memorial sought only to gather data but was vehemently opposed by Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and other organizations.

In each of these cases, professionals in the anti-life lobby were present in large numbers.  Their latest technique in calling out supports is the use of “robo-calls,” computer generated telephone calls with outgoing messages only.

As for the pro-life side, calls for prayer and calls to attend the legislative session were emailed.  In each case the pro-life side was out-numbered by a very large margin.

It is incumbent on each and every Christian to continue to pray, as well as to discuss issues with elected representatives and amongst ourselves.  To change the tide of our times, new representatives are required at every level.  Change will come with prayer, knowing who we’re voting for, and voting.

HB 275 A Result of New Mexico Alliance for Life Investigation 

Into UNM Health Sciences

 Center Policy for Babies Born Alive After Abortion Procedure

HB 275 will have first committee hearing on 
Thursday, February 4 in House Health Committee at 8:30 a.m. in Room 309, NM State Legislature
Pro-Life Leader
New Mexico Alliance for Life has worked with state leaders to introduce this ground breaking legislation and thanks Gov. Susana Martinez for messaging HB 275 “Require Medical Care for All Infants” and thanks to the bill sponsors Rep. Rod Montoya (R- Farmington)  and Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-Alamogordo). This bill will ensure infants who survive abortion attempts on their lives receive proper medical attention and are not left to die, or intentionally killed. The NMAFL-draft legislation provides oversight to ensure the federal Infant Born Alive Protection Act is adhered to but also ensures infants who survive abortions in New Mexico are provided proper medical care.  It is well documented that during abortion procedures, in particular late-term abortions infants are born alive and may survive–which spurred the passage of the Federal Infant Born Alive Protection Act in 2002, that grants these babies all the rights of a U.S. citizen under the law.
UNM’s late-term abortion clinic director, Eve Espey outlines protocols for infants born alive during abortion procedures.
As a part of New Mexico Alliance for Life’s ongoing investigative research, we have uncovered an infants born alive policy at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.  HB 275 is the direct result of our findings and recommendations in working with the Governor’s office and other state leaders to address this alarming issue, which currently has gone unchecked.
NMAFL has uncovered the University of New Mexico’s OB-GYN Dept. Director and UNM late- term abortion clinic director, Eve Espey outlines how infants show signs of life after late-term abortions but does not indicate how they are cared for.  What is truly alarming is the policy uncovered by NMAFL does not indicate how these babies are being cared for inside the abortion clinic or UNM Hospital–alive, crying, frightened and fighting for their lives.
 “The question is not a matter of “if” this is happening but when it does, what provisions are being provided to these babies born alive in abortion clinics across New Mexico?” said Elisa Martinez, executive director of NMAFL.   As exposed by NMAFL, Espey also set up the invalid contract with late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd which resulted in the disbanding of UNM resident training at his clinic.

This bill will provide the necessary oversight to prevent another Kermit Gosnell, late-term abortionist convicted of three counts of murder who delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, that he and his assistants “snipped” the newborns’ spines with scissors.  Or late-term abortionist Douglas

Karpen, whose former assistants accused him of killing “three to four born-alive babies a day by cutting their spinal cord, forcing instruments into the soft spots of their heads or even twisting their heads of their necks.”

UNMHSC abortion born-alive protocols, There is no indication in this policy as to what basic life-saving attempts or other provisions made for the baby showing signs of life inside the UNM Hospital abortion clinic or other abortion clinics.
Rod Montoya
Rep. Rod Montoya  sponsor of HB 275 “Medical Care for All Infants” to protect survivors of late-term abortions
“This legislation supplements the federal Infant Born Alive Protection Act and ensures these babies receive the same proper care as any newborn. Due to the lack of any current regulation of the abortion industry in New Mexico there is no indication whether or not the existing law is being enforced since there is no accountability.  How can we expect any industry, like the abortion industry, to self-report against their own perceived self-interest?”
Elisa Martinez, executive director, NM Alliance for Life

“There is no reason for anyone to not support HB 275, a long overdue, common-sense protection for infants. The same late-term abortion procedures that can result in live births, employed by convicted late-term abortionist Gosnell, and Karpen are used by abortionists in New Mexico, including UNM’s Dr. Eve Espey and Curtis Boyd. Yet we have no way of knowing what care is given to these babies born alive, but we suspect not many leave New Mexico abortion clinics alive.”

–Elisa Martinez, NMAFL executive director. 
CDC Statistics On Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions
In 2011, the CDC recorded 1,298 cases of infant death in the U.S. due to “Other perinatal conditions,” which includes ICD-10 category P96.4, death subsequent to a failed “termination of pregnancy.” Numbers have not been released for the particular category.  Currently there is no “reliable voluntary reporting of live birth” after abortion. Dr. Willard Cates, an expert on medical statistics who is chief of abortion surveillance for the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, estimates that 400 to 500 abortion live births occur every year in the United States. Dr. Cates added, “No one is so naive as to think there is reliable voluntary reporting of live births in the present climate.” In other words, the number of babies born alive after abortions is actually much higher.
8:30 AM – 10:30 AM   
HB 275 hearing before the House Health Committee, room 309 .  Please be there by 8:00 am for seating.
10:30 AM – 12 noon   
Lobby Sen. Majority Leader Michael Sanchez Room 119 and your NM State Senator (find here) in support of both HB 275 and the Late-Term Abortion Ban- tell them you expect them to vote for the ban in committee and on the Senate floor.  More information to follow
12 noon    
Press Conference with NM State Legislators, New Mexico Alliance for Life and UNM Students for Life and more
About HB 275
HB 275 provides oversight measures and a special task force that will report to the legislature and Governor every year to monitor abortion clinics to ensure they are providing care to children that are born alive after a failed abortion attempt.  This includes medical care and nourishment for the victims who show signs of life after an abortion attempt and where their death is not imminent.
