Obama is hiding the truth about Benghazi

I have been watching the latest on the Benghazi talking points scandal with great interest. However, I'm waiting for someone to ask the questions that must be answered to close the loop on this tragedy. Where was President Obama from 5 p.m. on Sept. 11 to the time he boarded Air force One for his campaign rally in Las Vegas on Sept 12? We had a diplomatic installation under attack with our ambassador missing, and Obama went off the grid?

The American people deserve a full accounting. Why was he not in the Situation Room monitoring the developments and leading our military and diplomatic assets to save the people on the ground? Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi meeting with the Turkish diplomat with a light security detail on Sept. 11, of all days? Why has the administration tried so desperately to make this issue go away? We are backing into it with this sideshow, but the truth has yet to be revealed. It now is time for the president to explain his lack of leadership and what he is hiding from the American people.

ACLU is responsible for downfall of U.S.

In 1681, William Penn wrote "If you are not governed by God, you will be ruled by tyrants." It would seem he was speaking about present-day America. The ACLU and its minions had religion removed from schools and our public places.

That void was quickly filled with guns, drugs and violence. The ACLU were and are still terrified someone might hear the word of God. Murder by abortion now is the law of the land. Gay marriage will probably be approved by the liberals in the Supreme Court.

America is fast becoming the great Satan. If we continue on the path we're on, there is no hope left for any of us. If you want to know the fate of America, read Jeremiah 18:7-10. Please take some time daily to pray for us all. The grace of God brings salvation by faith.

Head Start aids immigrants

On the front page of the Chattanooga Times Free Press on May 9 was an article about cuts to the North Chattanooga Head Start. Were there any U.S. citizens included? What is the citizenship of the parents?

Why should we taxpayers have to pay for these kids to learn English? This country/state cannot continue to subsidize birthright citizenship! We need to enforce the laws on the books for illegal immigration!

Head Start allows illegal immigrants to stay home and make more children. We need to end birthright citizenship.
