Daschle Done: Big Blow to Obama
February 03, 2009
ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: The White House announced today that Tom Daschle has just withdrawn his nomination to become secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) and that President Obama has “reluctantly” accepted his decision.
"To be chosen by President Obama to run the Department of Health and Human Services and to lead the reform of America's health-care system is one of the signal honors of an improbable career," Daschle said in a statement. "But if 30 years of exposure to the challenges inherent in our system has taught me anything, it has taught me that this work will require a leader who can operate with the full faith of Congress and the American people, and without distraction."
This is a devastating blow to the new administration. Daschle is and has been one of the president’s closest allies, and Obama said Monday that he was “absolutely” sticking with him as his choice at HHS.
He would have overseen a vast portfolio of health-care issues and agencies, including, of course, the signature issue of health-care reform and expansion.
And this marks the third top official whose nomination has been withdrawn because of unanticipated problems involving vetting their histories -- a statement on the Obama operation’s apparent haste in getting top posts filled.

"The Definition of Tyranny," The New American (May 15, 1995), by John F. McManus
"Formed in 1921 by Edward Mandell House, President Woodrow Wilson's right-hand man,the CFR's purpose has been undeniably clear from the start: to submerge our nation into a socialist, one-world government."
"Never forget that the CFR was formed to bring about socialism and world government.
Its increasing domination over America's affairs amounts to a conspiracy the grip of which must be broken by an informed and alarmed American citizenry. If CFR influence over our federal government isn't soon broken, America will be reduced to a mere province in a socialistic world government where freedom has disappeared and national sovereignty is but a dim memory. And James Madison's worst fear -- tyranny reigning in this land -- will become a reality. The time to expose the CFR and its grip on this land is now."

Biblical "Separation" for a Nation
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,..." 2 Corinthians 6:14-17a (KJB)
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. The Declaration of Independence is part of the organic law of the United States of America United States Code Annotated http://uscode.house.gov/search/criteria.shtml
The people of Iraq have far greater freedom to enshrine their national religion of Islam in the legal structure of their country than do Americans to honor Christianity and Biblical Law in the United States. Christianity was by far the predominant faith of the founding generations of America, from Jamestown in 1607 to the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and beyond, as the historical record clearly shows:
No King but King Jesus! (Yeshua Messiah)
Declarations and Evidences of Christian Faith in America’s Colonial Charters, State Constitutions, and other Historical Documents during over 375 Years of American History: 1606 to 1982
The Sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams (son of John Adams, the Second US President, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence), said: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." and "From the day of the Declaration... they (the American people) were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of The Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rules of their conduct." Tragically, today in 2008, American law has become exceedingly anti -Christian. Witness the government-protected murder of One Million pre-birth human beings each year (www.ldi.org).
The Constitution of the United States should be amended as first proposed by the National Reform Association in 1864, with a Christian Amendment:
Confession of the Saviour (Messiah) as the Ruler of Nations, including America, by amending the Preamble to the United States Constitution
In 1864, the National Reform Association advocated amending the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States to read, in substance:
"We, the people of the United States, humbly acknowledging Almighty God as the source of all authority and power in civil government, the Lord Jesus Christ as the Ruler among the nations, his revealed will as the supreme law of the land, in order to constitute a Christian government, and in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the inalienable rights and the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to ourselves, our posterity, and all the people, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Explicitly Christian Politics: The Vision of the National Reform Association
"Since 1864 the National Reform Association has advocated an explicitly Christian approach to politics. In this book their vision of politics, based on the mediatorial reign of Jesus Christ over the nations, is explained for a new generation."
