Israel

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, August 16, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

On January 15, 2014 the Georgia General Assembly adopted two senate resolutions supporting the Nation of Israel.

S.R. 741 by Senator John Albers expressed strong support and a steadfast commitment to the security, welfare, and survival of the Jewish State of Israel with secure borders and the right to protect itself against terrorism. It called for an end of attacks against Israel; for the recognition of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State; and for the U.N. to stop blaming Israel for defending itself. It encouraged Georgia lawmakers and citizens to give vigorous enduring support to the State of Israel.

S.R. 739 by Senator Judson Hill reached back into the Old Testament to affirm Israel’s right to occupy land deeded to the Jews “in the Old Testament … scripture held sacred and revered by Jews and Christians … as presenting the acts and words of God.” Continue reading

Marijuana

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, August 9, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Medical marijuana was a BIG issue this year in the legislature. The halls of the Capitol were filled with folks interested in H.B. 885 to amend Georgia’s 1980 law that legalized the use of marijuana to treat cancer and glaucoma. H.B. 885 changed the word “marijuana” to “cannabis,” and authorized its use as a non-smoking medication in clinical trials and research for the treatment of seizure disorders, glaucoma, cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment.

The 1980 law did not prohibit the smoking of marijuana for medical purposes, but H.B. 885 stipulated the product as “medical cannabis,” and defined it as nonpsychoactive extracts and compounds in non-smoking forms of liquid, pill, vaporization, or injection, which does NOT include recreational forms of marijuana. However, H.B. 885 died at the end of the session. Continue reading

Marriage

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, August 2, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Until now, the United States has never had a president who would give foreign aid only to nations agreeing to promote homosexuality.  Never in history has a U.S. secretary of state announced to her staff, “It’s okay to be gay,” but a recent secretary of state used her “stately” role to say just that.  Never has there been a U.S. tax-payer-funded refugee center, specifically, for foreigners claiming variant sexual orientations, but there’s one in Chicago now.

Never have so many decisions of voters been reversed by unauthorized officials posing as law-makers!  Now, almost routinely, judges abandon their duty to determine the constitutionality of laws.  Instead, they assume a legislative role to drastically transform U.S. culture.  Their current over-ride of voters in the redefinition of marriage portends a deathblow to cultural stability.

They’re Here!

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, July 25, 2014 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

On July 24th, after Governor Nathan Deal learned from his staff that 1,154 unaccompanied children had been dumped in Georgia, he immediately shot off a letter to President Obama. This is part of that letter:

“This came as a complete shock to me as the governor of this state. I’m sure it will also shock the local communities around the state where these individuals currently reside. It is unconscionable that your administration failed to pick up the phone, email or send a letter to my office to inform us that these children were being sent to our communities … that must provide support to these children and families as they await … adjudication of their immigration status. Mr. President, we do not know where these children are being sent, how long they will reside in our state or who they are even residing with while they are in our state.”

Those 1,145 illegal aliens were released in Georgia between January 1 and June 30, 2014. Since they arrive announced and details are sketchy, it’s entirely possible they were dropped off in the dead of night as, reportedly, was done by buses to Terrell Middle School in Houston. Continue reading
