People who believe in the Constitution should boycott this nonsense. It's just an exercise in pretend religion, useful for fooling the unwashed masses into thinking they're all 'good Christian men' who have our best interests at heart.

Bleah.

For the last two decades, a Virginia mansion has been a private hideaway for world leaders, members of Congress, and even pop star Michael Jackson.

Located on a quiet residential street, the $4.4-million estate called Cedars sits at the highest point of the Potomac River, with spectacular views of Washington beyond the pool and tennis courts. It is owned by the Fellowship, the nonpartisan Christian group that sponsors the National Prayer Breakfast.

While the annual breakfast is a widely known event attended by a succession of U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries, the Fellowship's part in the breakfast is low-key. Most attendees think the event is sponsored by Congress or even the president. Likewise, the Fellowship's role in diplomacy and current events has remained in the shadows. That's the way the organization wants it, for philosophical and practical reasons.

"If you want to help people, Jesus said you don't do your alms in public," Douglas Coe, the group's leader, said in a rare interview.

A Los Angeles Times review of the Fellowship's archives, which are kept at the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill., and an examination of documents obtained from several presidential libraries reveals an organization that has had extraordinary access and significant influence on foreign affairs for the last 50 years.

Eight members of Congress, including Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), live in a grand house on Capitol Hill, which is owned by a sister organization of the Fellowship. The house, which is registered as a church, routinely hosts gatherings for lawmakers and ambassadors. Members of Congress have traveled around the world on the Fellowship's behalf, sometimes mixing matters of state with religion.

The Fellowship was a behind-the-scenes player at the Camp David Middle East accords in 1978, working with President Jimmy Carter to issue a worldwide call to prayer with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. During the Cold War, it helped finance an anti-communism propaganda film endorsed by the CIA and used by the Pentagon overseas.

Last year, the Fellowship helped arrange a secret meeting at Cedars between two warring leaders, Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila and Rwandan President Paul Kagame--one of the first of a series of discreet meetings between the two African leaders that eventually led to the signing of a peace accord in July.

Then-Sen. David Durenberger retreated to the mansion in 1986 when he began having marital problems. GOP strategist Lee Atwater came seeking spiritual guidance in 1990 when he learned he was dying. Jackson and his children stayed in October, while in town for a benefit concert for victims of last year's terrorist attacks.

Alex Jones Has Council for National Policy Linked Death Squad Architect As Guest On His Show
November 30, 2010Print Version
Source: www.roguegovernment.com - By Lee Rogers

Alex Jones continues to show the world that he is a controlled opposition fraud by again having Larry Pratt as a guest on his show. Pratt was a high level figure within the Council for Inter-American Security a group involved with the implementation of Latin American death squads during the 1980s. Pratt has also been listed as a member of the secretive right wing religious and political networking group the Council for National Policy. The Council for National Policy is a highly influential group that vetted George W. Bush before his main 2000 Presidential run and also vetted Sarah Palin prior to her selection as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 Presidential election.

Pratt is typically brought on the Alex Jones show to discuss Second Amendment issues due to his role as the Executive Director of the so-called gun rights group Gun Owners of America. Jones of course will not divulge significant facts about Pratt that reveal his significant links back to the power structure that is pushing ahead the New World Order agenda. Besides Pratt's links to the Council for National Policy and the death squad linked Council for Inter-American Security, Pratt is also on friendly terms with former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft who has also been linked to the Council for National Policy. Ashcroft was of course a primary supporter of the implementation of the Patriot Act which further destroyed freedom in the supposed post 9/11 world.

Both Of course both Pratt and Jones supported Pat Buchanan's 1996 presidential campaign with Pratt being forced to disassociate himself from the campaign due to his links to white supremacists and militia groups. Buchanan was a Nixon administration operative and has established quite a career for himself as a corporate media propagandist. An ABC News report on Buchanan in the 1980s stated that he was trained by the Jesuits and that they taught him to think. Buchanan has also been linked to the Knights of Malta. Both the Jesuits and the Knights of Malta are centuries old organizations with ties back to the Vatican.

Pratt has also said that Dick Cheney was one of the better U.S. Congressmen we have had. A ridiculous statement in of itself to anybody who has researched his ties to Halliburton and the 9/11 attacks.

To make matters worse, Jones on Monday had Knight of Malta Lord Monckton on his show to talk about the Climate Change summit happening down in Cancun. Lord Monckton back in the 1980s discussed forcibly quarantining individuals with AIDS a fact that Jones will conveniently not bring up on his show.

If Jones continues to have these characters as guests on his show, we are going to keep calling him out as a phony controlled opposition stooge. After all, Jones has gone on the record saying that he has high level sources at Fox News an organization that has several hosts and executives that are linked in some way back to the Knights of Malta and the Vatican. Both of these organizations are obviously about as New World Order as you can get. Jones claims that this type of criticism is out of jealousy when it is not. It is simply a matter of trying to find the truth which is something Jones has clearly given up on years ago.

so it's not my fault...And boy did Obama & the rest of the liberals who lie about being real Christians, Catholics, Baptists, Methodists...get schooled!

You can NOT be both Catholic and pro-Obama
"In his appearance on Fox News Sunday on February 12, White House chief of staff Jack Lew discussed with host Chris Wallace what the administration was determined to sell as an “accommodation” to Catholic concerns, an “accommodation” that tweaked an HHS mandate requiring that all health insurance provide no-co-pay abortifacients..."

This is by far the dumbest Professor on the planet. This is not about pro-Obama or not. It is about the First Amendment and our religious liberty in the USA. Read the Constitution, it gives no right to the government to interfere with religious beliefs.

You're a liar. I agree it has nothing to do with Obama, but your side desperately WANTS it to because it's an election year.

The issue is health care and the separation of Church and state. No religious beliefs are being "interfered with," and this has already been decided in more than one court. Get over yourself.

Honey this not about me. So the First Amendment and the Constitution is a lie, because I support it, I am a liar. Definitely some left wing professed agenda you got going on. This is not about me, this is not about birth control, this is about the Constitution. The liberals want to make it out to be about birth control why, because Obama cannot run on the thriving economy or anything. As Catholics do not give out abortion pills or sterilization to their employees, do you realize many catholic organizations are self insured. This would make Catholics go against their conscience, since when does a Government have the right to tell a religion what they can or cannot believe in, and interfere with their conscience. Let the Lawsuits begin.
The Supreme Court just ruled in a case and they sided with the First Amendment of our Constitution.

Again many religious organizations are self insured as well, passing out abortion pills, sterilization etc., and is against Catholics moral beliefs. In no way does any government have a right to tell a religion what or what they cannot believe in, or what they have to do within their religion or not. Obama's shell game is a red herring, and we are not buying being forced by the government to act against conscience.
