This is really bad how they constantly want to sneak things through Congress right before holidays… A tradition dating back to at least December 1913! Well, they are at it again this week with their desire to have a wide open gay policy in the military…

Subject: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal being pushed THIS WEEK!
Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Once again, Obama, Pelosi and Reid are using their classic “misdirection” strategy to ram through yet another radical piece of legislation! This latest attack is a direct assault on our military, our national security and our families. At a time when we should
build a strong defense, the Obama administration is ready to weaken the, military! See below. – Mat
Friends,As I write, ultraliberal House and Senate leaders are rushing to pass legislation revoking the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy from our military and further forcing theirradical, pro-homosexual social engineering on our culture.Just yesterday, leaders from the White House, the homosexualactivist community and the leadership of the 111th Congress announced a so-called “Repeal Deal” they believe will get this bill through – and their goal is to clear two keylegislative hurdles THIS WEEK.Why is this issue of open homosexuality in the military socrucially important? To have a strong military, there must be unit cohesion, order, discipline and high morale.History and common sense have proven that open homosexualitydestabilizes the military and weakens military readiness.But now we are bracing for a House floor vote any day. This will be followed by a key Senate committee vote. And both votes are being pushed this week so that Congress can move this controversial measure forward…and then skip town for the week-long Memorial Day break!Once again, it’s the classic “Obama push” in action!This is how Obama, Pelosi and Reid like to do business. First, they diffuse the issue and say, “no legislation isimminent” (in this case, they misled Americans by promising to study DADT for a full year before coming to a conclusion). Then, with little or no warning, they ram their agendathrough Congress in the compressed timetable leading up to a scheduled recess!++This is radical, anti-family social engineering at its worst.Revoking DADT is no small policy change. As you probably know, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is really a misnomer. In 1993 Congress overwhelmingly REJECTED President Clinton’s proposal to allow open homosexuality in the military andpassed a law clearly stating that openly practicing homosexuals ARE NOT ELIGIBLE for military service.The only compromise made in the bill was to drop the question about homosexuality that appeared on military induction forms.Thus, the phrase “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” remained as a popular moniker.That 1993 law codified a long-standing Defense Departmentpolicy recognizing the military as a “specialized society” that is “characterized by forced intimacy with little or no privacy.” The law was designed to PROTECT “high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesionthat are the essence of military capability.”Now, using classic “misdirection” tactics (by falsely promising the issue would be thoroughly studied for at least a year), and in a mad rush to get momentum before the Memorial Day break, Obama and Congress want to restructure our military and further push the radical homosexual agenda on society!++Urgent Action Required To Stop This Attack!These votes came up with virtually no warning and now we have just a few days to mount an initial grassroots response. Of course, that was the purpose of the Administration’sdeceitful tactic – to remove your and my voice from the process!I urgently need your help to send the strongest possible message to Congress every day this week.I have instructed my staff to deliver our petition opposing this attack on our military and families to Congress this week and I want to include yourname in that delivery.Fortunately, we have nearly 20,000 signed petitions from an earlier defense against the repeal of DADT when the issue came into prominence as an Obama policy goal during his 2010 State of the Union address.So, today we have a good start but we need to make this fully justified statement of citizen OUTRAGE much more powerful! Go here right now to sign and be included in our urgent petition delivery:http://www.libertyaction.org/r.aspI want to rally an additional 30,000 signers in the next 48 hours so we can send the strongest message possible, and I urgently need your help!++In time of war, military readiness is paramount.
We are at a crossroads regarding our U.S. military’s effectiveness in this time of war. To disrupt their mission with a major policy change on such a sensitive issue for political purposes would be absolutely wrong on many levels.
Plus, we cannot allow Obama, Reid and Pelosi to use the military as just another tool of SOCIAL ENGINEERING! What the ultraliberal 111th Congress does this week could have profoundly negative ramifications for our entire culture.That’s why we must take action.Again, we are delivering petitions later this week. I want to include you in this important statement rejecting ANY legislation enacting a pro-homosexual policy change at this critical time for our nation’s military.Click here to sign:http://www.libertyaction.org/r.aspThank you in advance for your support!God bless you,Mathew Staver, Founder and ChairmanLiberty CounselP.S. Once again, Obama, Reid and Pelosi are trying to ram their agenda through Congress – and they are using our military as a pawn in their social engineering scheme that undermines our families by forcing Americans to embrace the radical homosexual agenda.
