New Democrat Amendment Could Slow Hate Bill Signing

By Rev. Ted Pike
18 Oct. 2009

CQ Politics reports that Congressional Democrats may add yet another irrelevant amendment to the national defense authorization bill. It’s a measure to grant the District of Columbia a representative (almost certainly Democrat) in the US House. CQ quotes House Majority leader, Rep. Steny Hoyer: “I will continue to fight to find a way to bring that to the floor.”
The defense bill, with hate bill attached, is headed to Pres. Obama for signing after probable passage by the Senate early this week. It includes $100 billion in funding for thousands of additional F-35 warplane engines. Obama has repeatedly warned Congress he will veto a defense bill with such funding. If the D.C. vote measure is pursued by the Democrats, it may have several favorable consequences for lovers of freedom:

  1. The DC amendment will have to be debated and voted on in the House and Senate – a delay of perhaps a week in signing of the defense/hate bill by the President.

  2. Since a DC amendment is to Republican disadvantage, scores of Congressional Republicans who now support passage of the defense/hate bill (such as Sen. John McCain) might no longer do so.

If Obama does veto the defense/hate bill, his veto could be overridden by Congress unless Republican support for the defense bill collapses – something addition of the DC amendment might hasten. All Republicans must be stimulated to demand the bill be brought back to Congress to be stripped of the hate (and possibly DC) amendments and resubmitted.

Democrats May Go Too Far

Evil is immoderate – wanting too much, too fast. The Democrats now want to add two self-serving amendments unrelated to defense. Less concerned about prompt supply of American armed forces, they are primarily interested in acquisition of even greater power.
Massive protest from the American people, emailing the President to keep his veto promise, could provide a recipe for hope – hope that the Democrat ambition of a federal hate crimes bureaucracy like Canada's, ending free speech in America, will founder.
With the possibility of a little more time, it is vital that all elements of the Christian/conservative right unite NOW, demanding Obama keep his veto promise. Unfortunately, even though all other strategies to defeat the hate bill are exhausted, major evangelical “watchdog” groups remain unresponsive to promotion of this, the only viable strategy to kill the hate bill.
Keep emails going into the White House! Talk show host Pastor Wiley Drake suggests his strategy. After cutting and pasting in the following messages to the White House, he keeps punching “send” several times a day. Do the same. Email these messages daily until the hate bill is vetoed:

  • Mr. President, I will vote out Democrats at midterms if you sign the freedom-destroying federal hate crimes bill.

  • Mr. President, I expect you to keep your promise to veto any military authorization bill that wastes $100 billion of taxpayers' money on unnecessary F-35 jet engines.

Send these two messages in separate emails. You may cut and paste them at
Let’s make it overwhelmingly clear to the President this week that if he wants Democrats to survive at mid-term elections next year, he will reject the influence of the ADL, homosexual lobby – even his Democrat Congress. He will listen to the American people and veto a defense bill both he and the Pentagon have repeatedly declared wasteful and outdated.
Obama may not have a reputation for keeping his word. But I believe overwhelming pressure from the American people can go a long way toward making him honest.

America First Books Editor's Note

For those new to this controversy, please link to the following articles:

Fox News Rips "Pedophile-Protecting" Hate Bill:

...[Fox News anchor Megyn] Kelly interviewed Rep. Steve King, who attempted to amend the hate bill in Judiciary last week to explicitly exclude pedophiles. King reported how Rep. Alcee Hastings, a pro-hate bill Democrat, proudly claimed practitioners of 547 paraphilias listed by the American Psychiatric Association can "live without fear" once the hate bill is passed.
Ms. Kelly also expressed indignation that, while the Democrats acted to protect pedophiles, they rejected Republican efforts to obtain similar special protection for war veterans. Especially in times of unpopular wars, these are common victims of "hate crimes," spit upon or attacked because of who they are -- military defenders of America's freedom...

Alert to Congress Regarding Hate Bills and the False Flag Attack Threat by America First Books publisher William B. Fox. Two-thirds down the web page please find the essay "The Hate Crime Law Concept: It is all very sinister for at least nine major reasons."
Also, earlier on this same page I comment:

Although Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
This is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime” laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.

Hate crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence or infringement on the rights of others.
In our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt. Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power that libertarian writer and Presidential candidate Harry Browne described in his classic book Why Government Doesn't Work.
