    Lifesite ^ | 8-6-07 | By John Jalsevac
    BOISE, ID, August 3, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Federal district Judge Mikel Williams ruled on Friday that the Idaho Department of Correction must provide an inmate with estrogen therapy. The inmate believes that he is a woman trapped in a man's body. The man, who castrated himself using a disposable razor blade while in prison, demanded female hormone therapy, and also changed his name from Randall Gammett to Jenniffer Spencer. After prison officials refused estrogen therapy, but instead offered testosterone therapy to replace the hormones lost to castration, the inmate sued, alleging he was subjected to cruel and unusual punishment and...

    Today July 11, 2007 71 members of the Idaho Republican Party, including a number of members of the Idaho Republican Party State Central Committee and Executive Committee filed suit in the U. S. Federal Court in Boise Idaho to require the State of Idaho and its Chief Election Officer, Ben Ysursa, Idaho Secretary of State to honor the Rule adopted by the Idaho Republican Party on June 2, 2007. Idahoans are still entitled to the basic protections and rights offered by the U.S. Constitution 220 years ago, including the right of association under the First Amendment. It is our intent...
  • SALI’S REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER: PRO-ABORTION, PRO-GAY RIGHTS?

    Idaho Values Alliance. | Monday, July 9, 2007 | Bryan Fischer,
    Matt Salisbury of Nampa has declared his intention to challenge freshman GOP Congressman Bill Sali in the 2008 primary. This means Republican voters will have a choice next May, between an incumbent who subscribes to the party’s platform on the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage, and one who apparently does not. While Rep. Sali has been a staunch defender of life in the womb and a staunch defender of the concept that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, Salisbury evidently takes a different view. Salisbury was quoted by the Associated Press as someone...

    CONTINENTAL CONGRESS IN 1774 OPENS WITH PRAYER As the nation prepares for the 56th annual National Day of Prayer tomorrow, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on a seminal moment in American history. The Continental Congress, which gave us the Declaration of Independence in 1776, convened for the first time on September 7, 1774. The first legislative action taken was a motion to open this first session in prayer. The motion was opposed. Aha, you say – separation of church and state! But it was opposed for reasons other than you might expect. It was not that the delegates...

    Sacramento, Calif. -- One of the leaders in the nation's oldest and best-known gay Republican organization signaled tonight that the favorite GOP presidential candidate for his group in '08 was Rudy Giuliani. "How could we not like Rudy?" James Vaughn, executive director of the 30-year-old Log Cabin Republicans, told me at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, where California Republicans were gathering for their state convention this weekend. "He has always been openly supportive of the gay agenda and won't apologize," said Vaughn, who served as the liaison to gay and lesbian Los Angeleans under former Republican Mayor (1993-2001) Richard Riordan. "As...

    Idaho Values Alliance ^ | January,29, 2007 | Bryan Fischer , Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance.
    On Jan. 16, Virginia celebrated the 220th anniversary of the passage of Thomas Jefferson's Statute for Religious Freedom. This bill was so important to Jefferson that he insisted that his authorship of this bill be memorialized for all time on his epitaph. Unfortunately for the church of secular liberalism, his statute is problematic for groups who like to cite Jefferson in support of their effort to remove all mention of God, and Christianity in particular, from the public square. Jefferson could not stop himself from talking explicitly about God and about Christ in this statute, which is still today a...

    IDAHO VALUES ALLIANCE ^ | January 19, 2007 | Bryan Fischer
    Trembling for my country because God is just A pro-abortion column appeared in the Friday, January 19 edition of the largest circulation newspaper in my home state, written by the executive director of the state chapter of the ACLU and the president of the state affiliate of Planned Parenthood. They argue, of course, in support of a woman's right to destroy innocent human life in the womb, relying on the so-called "right to privacy." The heart of their argument is that "the decision whether and when to become a parent is among the most private a person can make," that...

    CBS Discourages Religion in Christmas A segment of "The CBS Early Show" today, hosted by Rene' Syler, included a list of "do's and don'ts" for holiday gift giving. She and her guest said it was "a bad idea" to send Christmas cards with religious themes, or with religious messages. I thought Christ was born on this day and is the basis for the holiday celebration of Christmas. Apparantly they have lost touch with reality. Please send a feedback comment email to the show if you feel compelled to do so. Here is the link: http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/feedback/fb_news_form.shtml

    SALI VICTORY A HUGE WIN FOR IDAHO FAMILIES Bill Sali won convincingly in an energetically contested 6-horse primary yesterday for Idaho's 1st Congressional seat, taking 25% of the vote (as of 3:00 a.m., with 745 of the 914 precincts reporting). His win represents a huge victory for Idaho families, as he becomes the presumptive favorite in the general election in November. Sali believes staunchly in conservative principles (the kind expressed in the Republican Party platform), and has demonstrated in his 16 years in the Idaho legislature an unwavering allegiance to those principles. He will be a representative Idaho families can...

    Subject: Congress is selling out the Internet Hi, Do you buy books online, use Google, or download to an Ipod? These activities will be hurt if Congress passes a radical law that gives giant corporations more control over the Internet. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet's First Amendment. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. Amazon.com doesn't have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer. Politicians don't think we...

My question is what specifically could a congressman do to restore the balance of power?

    SACRAMENTO – Saying he made a mistake months ago that would have made it easier for shelters to kill stray dogs and cats, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Friday he has reinstated the state's six-day waiting period before lost animals could be killed. As part of his budget proposal that was first drafted in December, the governor had asked the Legislature to repeal a 1998 law that requires the shelters to hold animals up to six days before destroying them. The governor wanted to save money bu cutting the waiting period in half. But after a nationwide storm of protest, the...

    RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) - Lifelong rancher Charlie Jaure has seen cattle lose parts of their tails to the cold on occasion. He'd never seen them bitten off by wolves. That is, until shortly after Christmas, when Jaure lost two of his cattle to wolves north of Wamsutter. Another two were hurt badly and up to a dozen lost their tails, he said. ''I thought maybe they froze their tails,'' Jaure said. ''I got to looking, and it was all at the top of the tail.'' His wife, Kathleen, said the bones were left crushed and mangled.

    -- Elk numbers continue to plummet in the northern Yellowstone elk herd, according to a report released late Tuesday. The herd is now the smallest it's been since the 1970s. A Dec. 18 flight by state and federal biologists found 8,355 elk despite "relatively good survey conditions," which means good weather and enough snow to make elk visible from the air. That's a drop of at least 880 elk, or 9.5 percent, from last year's count of 9,215, when conditions were poor and biologists said they probably missed a lot of elk. The herd has dropped by an average of...

    It is better to ban one abortion procedure — i.e., partial-birth abortion — than to ban none at all. But the magnitude of this pro-life victory should be kept in perspective. It is natural for anyone who has labored tirelessly for years in the pro-life movement to feel a sense of satisfaction that Congress has finally shown an ounce of common sense, a pennyweight of compassion, and a gram of courage. The weary soldier welcomes any victory, however small. We are referring, of course, to the long-awaited 64-34 vote in the Senate to pass the "Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of...

    85% of prisoners, 78% of high school dropouts, 82% of teenage girls who become pregnant, the majority of drug and alcohol abusers - all come from single-mother-headed households. Less than 1% of any of these categories come from single-father-headed households. This seems to indicate that the problems children encounter are not related to single-parent households, but are related specifically to single-mother-headed households. So, should we blame the mothers or the fathers? Perhaps, neither. There is no question that father-absence has reached epidemic proportions. According to Wade Horn of the National Fatherhood Initiative, we must reverse the trend in 7 -...

    Studs Terkel believes that Americans suffer from “national Alzheimers disease.” The contemporary American historian has spent eight decades interviewing thousands of the “blue collar” people who seek, and live, the American Dream. He regrets that Americans ignore the lessons of history as though they did not exist. He wonders whether, in so doing, “Are we courting death?” His words are appropriate as we turn our thoughts to a great American founder, Benjamin Franklin. The lesson of history is that Franklin, and his revolutionary cohorts, created this nation because they believed that liberty could survive only where individual rights were paramount,...

    OROFINO, Idaho -- There are Idahoans who like hearing the howl of wolves in their state. There are Idahoans who are ambivalent about federal efforts to restore the predator. Those folks were scarce Saturday, when about 300 people gathered at Orofino High School for a fund-raiser aimed at making Idaho wolf-free. The money raised is for lobbying the state Legislature to sue federal agencies over wolf reintroductions that have led to a booming population. "Save State's Rights, Kill A Wolf!" read a bumper sticker available at the event. Of course, to kill a wolf without good cause is a federal...

    As we approach the year 2000 and the end of the age, chaotic events continue to manifest more frequently and with greater intensity like the birth pains of a woman in labor (Matt. 24:3-7). As these events continue to increase, a multitude of different voices are attempting to explain the madness concerning the end of the age. Sifting through the Godless secular voices is not too difficult for most Christians. However, discerning the many voices claiming to be Christian is much more difficult. Scripture teaches us that more and more false apostles, prophets, and teachers would arise within the church...

    God doesn't want us to be scared. But even when we do feel fear, we can choose to trust God and take action. God wants us to be totally free from fear. He doesn't want us to live in torment, and He doesn't want fear to stop us from confidently doing what He tells us to do. When we have a deep understanding concerning God's perfect unconditional love for us, we realize He will always take care of everything that concerns us — that knowledge eventually delivers us from fear. As we have experience with God and see that He...

    Tom Bergerud from British Columbia, Canada, had more dire predictions about wolves. “I predict that you’re going to have major impacts from wolves in this state (Idaho,) I predict a major elk decline”. He said, "I saw wolves repeatedly depress moose, caribou and elk populations while studying them throughout Canada, (from where these wolves came) and in some cases they wiped out local populations of caribou. “I’ve watched herd after herd (of caribou) go "EXTINCT" across Canada", he said. The problem is that wolves have no known predators to keep them in balance with the ecosystem. Indigenous wolves weighed only...

    WASHINGTON – Everyone knows Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., is the upper house's only physician. But who is this man who appears likely to become the next Senate majority leader? Sen. Bill Frist Opponents of abortion on demand are likely to be deeply disappointed. While Trent Lott, R-Miss., had promised to bring to the floor for a quick, early vote a bill restricting partial-birth abortion, Frist championed the nomination by President Clinton of former Surgeon General David Satcher, a fervent supporter of unrestricted abortion and someone who actually performed abortions. Satcher continued to serve in the Bush administration until earlier this...

    In light of the recent terrorist attacks, the whole world is stirred up and asking questions. For anyone who has had their eyes even half way open, these events should not have been surprising; shocking, horrifying, and sickening, but surely not surprising. Not only that, it was certainly planned to be much, much worse. Thank God for His protection in so many ways that we have no way of knowing about. It has been brought to our attention very vividly at the World Trade Center bombings in 1993 and subsequent actions that have come to light that there are people...

    Yellowstone is Dying: An Affidavit/Article to Secretary of Interior Gail Norton presented on our behalf by United States Senator Conrad Burns June 1, 2002 By Robert Fanning, Jr. This article is in "Range Magazine" in this months edition, I wrote it and request that you post it, wolf recovery is about land and business confiscation. The issue 20 or 30 years ago was whether to have wolves introduced into the Yellowstone Ecosystem. That is no longer the issue; NOW, the issue is how many wolves and who decides. Wolf recovery targets the common man, the poor and the voiceless. The...
