I have seen and heard it three times now, and I am furious.

They do NOT speak for all nurses! I don't care if the NURSE is an RN or an LPN... MANY of us are NOT in agreement with this ad, and I HOPE that there is SOMEONE besides me who speaks out about it. MANY of us are also NOT members of this organization.

This is an affront... this is smear, and that picture of Sarah 'looking angry' is placed there solely for effect!

THIS NURSE of 36+ yrs is not only offended, but also VERY insulted by this ad. That they are TARGETING WI, as well as OH, MI, MN, CO, and Missouri is also a reason for nurses in those states who do NOT agree with this ad to make that fact well known.

They wrote:

An Obama Supporter Reacts to Lori Kalner's Letter

When someone writes to me and has to use foul language and name-calling to defend their beliefs, it is because a nerve was struck, and often by Truth...

    Bishop Vasa - Clarifies "Faithful Citizenship"

    I've been looking through my notes, and finding draft versions that I had not sent.... Ah, well... better late than never!

    Bishop Vasa has often spoken well on topics close to my heart.

    Here, he does so again....

    Bishop Vasa: Pro-Abortion Candidates are "Disqualified" - Clarifies "Faithful Citizenship"

    By John-Henry Westen

    CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, September 12, 2008 ( - During the opening day of the Catholic Leadership Conference yesterday, Baker Oregon Bishop Robert Vasa clarified the teaching of the US Bishops Conference regarding voting in favor of pro-abortion politicians. The question of whether Catholics may remain in good standing with the Church while voting for pro-abortion politicians was raised.

    Bishop Vasa responded referencing the document of the United States Catholic Conference titled "Faithful Citizenship", noting a pro-abortion stance disqualifies candidates from consideration by faithful Catholics. spoke with Bishop Vasa after the session. Describing the deliberation among US bishops over the "Faithful Citizenship" document, he said: "When we were working on the document 'Faithful Citizenship', and the issue of whether or not a person's adamant pro-abortion position was a disqualifying condition, the general sense was 'yes that is a disqualifying condition'."

    However, during the discussions mention was made of the document by Pope Benedict just prior his elevation to the pontificate which noted that Catholics may in good conscience vote for a politician who supports abortion in the presence of "proportionate reasons."

    Bishop Vasa explained the notion of proportionate reasons, saying, "The conditions under which an individual may be able to vote for a pro-abortion candidate would apply only if all the candidates are equally pro-abortion."

    He added: "And then you begin to screen for the other issues and make a conscientious decision to vote for this pro-abortion candidate because his positions on these other issues are more in keeping with good Catholic values." In that case, he said, "It doesn't mean that you in any way support or endorse a pro-abortion position but you take a look in that context at the lesser of two evils."

    Speaking of politicians with a pro-abortion stand he said, "When we have someone who has that stand on a disqualifying issue, then the other issues, in many ways, do not matter because they are already wrong on that absolutely fundamental issue."

    Only when taken to a level of insanity could a 'pro-war' candidate be considered on par with a pro-abortion candidate in the Bishop's view. "If we had a candidate in favor of a war in Iraq in which we decimate the entire population and we kill as many civilians to impose as much terror on everybody as possible to make sure . . . If that was in opposition to a pro-abortion person then I'd have a real conflict of conscience because you'd have a direct and intentional killing of innocent persons on one hand and the direct and intentional killing of persons on the other hand, said the Baker Bishop.

    "But we don't have that issue with capital punishment, we don't have that issue with the war in Iraq we don't have that issue with the present Administration," he added.

    Bishop Vasa explained that as a man from the Midwest, the analogy of a combine worked well to describe how a sifting of candidates could be undertaken. He described a combine as having a series of sieves, the first of which eliminates the largest and most obvious refuse. In the analogy the first screen would eliminate pro-abortion candidates, "to weed out the greatest evil," he said.

    He concluded saying, "Abortion needs to be in our country a defining issue and we ought not be afraid to make it a defining issue because when we do that we will have an end of abortion in this country."

    Brain death? Organ Transplants too Soon?

    Diagnoses can be wrong, especially with head injuries. There is a lot of mistaken information 'out there' about brain death vs brain damage/injury. Sometimes, we are too quick to make decisions.

    A very important article should be a 'must read' for everyone!!

    The Demise of "Brain Death"

    Commentary by Dr. Paul A. Byrne, M.D.

    We are bombarded with propaganda that encourages organ donation. For an organ to be suitable for transplantation it must be taken from a living person.

    The rest of the article can be found here.

    And there is much more at the The Life Guardian website to learn!

    This is a longer interview, with his parents, and the MD who has no explanation for Zack's recovery.

    In Nursing School (long ago), we were taught that the LAST THING TO LEAVE is the sense of hearing. It is why we were also told to play music, to speak to the person, to tell them what we were doing, etc.

    Zack says he heard the talking. I have NO doubt that he did. None.

    From the article mentioned above:

    Now more than ever, there is great push to kill for organs. It was reported in the news that Zack Dunlap from Oklahoma was declared dead, and a transplant team was ready to take his organs until that young man moved. Instead of a calling it a reflex (as I have been told is commonly done), the transplant team was sent away. (

    This young man did not have a destroyed brain. Nevertheless, Zack would have been truly dead had they excised his heart for transplantation. He could hear the doctors discuss his "brain death," but he could not move at that time to tell them he was alive.

    Brain death" never was, and never will be true death. This has been known by neurologists and organ transplanters since the beginning of the multi-billlion industry. So if a declaration of "brain death" is not true death, but organs are taken legally in accord with "accepted medical standards," why not continue to make "acceptable" this less stringent criteria?

    In the 10 years after the ad hoc Committee conjured up the Harvard Criteria, 30 more sets were reported by 1978. Every set became less stringent. Less strict sets were reported until eventually there came about a criterion that does not fulfill any of the "brain death" criteria. This is known as donation by cardiac death (DCD). Organs are obtained for transplantation by first getting a DNR order, then taking the patient off life support and waiting until the patient is without a pulse. In the past the waiting time was 10 minutes, then shortened to 5 minutes, then 4, then 2 and now in the NEJM (8-14-08) the waiting time is only 1.25 minutes until they cut out the baby's heart.

    How shameful can it get? Shame on the medical field for knowing and not protecting these patients! Shame on the transplantation organizations for valuing money over an innocent injured person's life! Shame on the US government, other governments, and clergy for allowing and even encouraging extracting vital organs for transplantation and research! When will doctors informed of the truth stand for life instead of being political creeps?

    The transplant world no longer waits for "brain death." Now the goal is to get a DNR. Then they wait until the pulse stops for as short a time as 1.25 minutes. Organs obtained deceptively, yet legally, are called donation by brain death (DBD) and donation by cardiac death (DCD). It is the excision of vital organs that finalizes the death of the donor.

    What is going to happen when it becomes better known that "brain death" was a hoax from the beginning? Do doctors and laymen not realize that destroying human life before its natural end is a heinous crime? Do they not realize that excision of an unpaired vital organ for transplantation or research is imposed death, also known as euthanasia? Have they not been reading the papers about all those "donors" about to be sacrificed who suddenly wake up minutes before their organs were going to be extracted?

    No matter how generous one might want to be by donating his own self, or vital organs from someone else to save others, suicide or homicide to save another is not morally acceptable.

    Donna Cori Gibson Sings The Divine Mercy Chaplet

    This is going to be played and prayed frequently in my home from now on... in lieu of Lori Kalner's warnings, and so many things going on in the world today. I have the video and a DVD of this, but had to look to find where it can be embedded here. I found two sites, one that is in the title (and no embed), and the one from Godtube.

    God bless

    Jesus, I trust in You

    Divine Mercy, have mercy on us, and on the whole world.

    KathySawada video... Read Lori Kalner again after this one...

    UPDATE @ 7:27PM Oct 2, 2008... she has once again made HER video 'Private'...

    Ok, so now Kathysawada seems to have it back on, OR IMAO has been given access. (Read Lori Kalner letter again after you read this one... for clarity).

    Kathy Sawada had made it private, removed most of the comments (the majority speaking of very similar feelings as Lori Kalner expressed), which I had copied because I had a FEELING that they were going to disappear. As I watched her youtube site, MANY of those were reported as SPAM, though they were not. There were PAGES of comments from Sept 30, suddenly down to 74, and then, in the time it took to go from one view to another view (read all comments), it dropped to 54. Yes, Kathysawada was online. Those 20 missing were at that time, still there, marked as spam, and I read them, as well. They were not spam, they WERE mostly critical of the video.

    So, the link through IMAO is

    There are also three videos in response at this writing...
    This one has the sound of glass breaking, and it reminds me of Krystalnacht...
    This one is the Three Stooges (you can skip it if you like)

    This one uses the infamous song using Obama's words "Yes, We Can", etc, but intersperses comments/photos...

    OH... one more thing. THIS is her description of the 'event'....

    Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon...
    Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.

    Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision. Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks. Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children. Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner. There's a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once: for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.

    As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recording it.

    What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them. There were not many conditions: "Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00." At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.

    We are offering the video to everyone, the Obama campaign and all media with high hopes that we can all join together to Sing for Change.

    Technical info: Running time = 3 minutes; Standard Definition and HD Broadcast quality


    We're gonna spread happiness
    We're gonna spread freedom
    Obama's gonna change it
    Obama's gonna lead 'em

    We're gonna change it
    And rearrange it
    We're gonna change the world.

    Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

    Now's the moment, lift each voice to sing
    Sing with all your heart!
    For our children, for our families,
    Nations all joined as one.
    Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
    Courage, justice, hope!
    Sing together, hold each precious hand,
    Lifting each other up;
    Sing for vision, sing for unity,
    Lifting our hearts to Sing!

    Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

    Yes we can
    Lift each other up
    In peace, in love, in hope
    Change! Change!

    Lori Kalner speaks out on youtube Children Sing for Obama

    Last night, I found that the original youtube of the children singing for Obama has been made private, but I found it online, and I have downloaded it.

    I wrote to Bodie Thoene, and asked her if she and Brock had seen/heard it, and sent her the url of where it IS still online. I asked her what she thought of it, and she wrote back not long after, saying she was going to speak to Lori Kalner.

    Lori is older, and is not well, but she has responded after watching the video herself... From the Thoene's, and then from Lori:

    Last night Lori Kalner, of The Zion Covenant,
     heard an Obama political ad.

    The voices of innocent children were raised in a hymn of praise to Obama.
    The words of the song awakened a childhood memory, long dormant in her heart,
     and she has written a Word of warning to every Christian
    who is able to hear. 
    History is repeating itself.

    Hymn to Hitler
    Lori Kalner

    In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression.  Money was worth nothing.   In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s, which we have read about in Thoene's Shiloh books.
              In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to power by promising  "Change." 
              He blamed the "Zionists" around the world for all our problems.  He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused every problem we had.    He promised when he was leader,  the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished.   The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth.
                 So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote.  A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader.   Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him. 
             Yes.   Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would. 
               The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs in praise of Hitler.  This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement.   It began with praise of the Fuhrer's programs on the lips of innocent children. Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the schoolrooms and in the playyard.   Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as they walked home from school.
             My brother came home and told Papa what was happening at school.   The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust.
              I will never forget my father's face. Grief and fear.  He knew that the best propaganda of the Nazis was song on the lips of little children. 
              That evening before he said grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands upon the heads of my brothers and me and prayed the Living Word upon us from Jeremiah 1:4-5…
    'Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying,
             "Before I formed you in the
               womb I knew you,
               and before you were born I
                consecrated you;
               I appointed you a prophet to
               The nations."  

    Soon the children's songs praising the Fuhrer were heard everywhere on the streets and over the radio.   "With our Fuhrer to lead us, we can do it! We can change the world!"
                 Soon after that Papa, a pastor, was turned away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals.  The people he had come to bring comfort of God's Word, were "no longer there." 
              Where had they vanished to while under nationalized health care?   It became an open secret.  The elderly and sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as "mercy killing" became the policy.  Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were euthanized.  
              People whispered,  "Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of misery.   They are no longer suffering…And, of course, their death is better for the treasury of our nation.  Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a burden."  
              And so murder was called mercy.
    The government took over private business.   Industry and health care were "nationalized."   (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The businesses of all Jews were seized.  (Perhaps you remember our story in Berlin on Krystalnacht in the book Munich Signature) 
    The world and God's word were turned upside down.  Hitler promised the people economic Change?
               Not change.  It was, rather, Lucifer's very ancient Delusion leading to Destruction. 
            What began with the propaganda of children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children. The reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present generation cannot imagine it.  
             Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a book or show in a black and white newsreel.  
               When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things, she wept and said she could not bear to write them.    Perhaps one day she will, but  I asked her, "who could bear to read our suffering?" 
                Yet with my last breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in the name of the Lord, 
               Unless your course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the Lord, there are new horrors yet to come.

    I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who claims he is the American Messiah. 
              Yet I have heard what this man Obama says about abortion and the "mercy killing" of tiny babies who are not wanted.    
    There are so few of us left to warn you.  
               I have heard that there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians. 
                Where are your voices?  Where is your outrage?  Where is passion and your vote?   
                Do you vote based on an abortionist's empty promises and economics?  Or do you vote according to the Bible? 
                Thus says the Lord about every living child still in the womb…

                "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
              and before you were born I consecrated you…"
              I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my youth.
               I see them again now.
               Christians!    Unless you stand up now, you will lose your freedom of religion. 
               In America priests and preachers have already lost their freedom to speak openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political candidates. They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to the precepts of scripture!  American law forbids this freedom of speech to conservative pastors or they will lose their "tax exempt" status.   
               And yet I have heard the words of Obama's pastor Damning America! I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small towns because you "Cling to your religion…"    
                 But I am a woman whose name is unknown.   My life is recorded as a work of fiction.   I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the pages of a book.  (Though the Zion Covenant books are mocked and condemned by the Left in America.)
                I am an old woman and will soon go to be with my Lord. I have no fear for myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble.  
              I tremble at the hymns to a political leaders which your children will sing at school.  (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is against the law in public school!) 
               Your vote must put a stop to what will come upon America if Barrack Obama is elected.       
               I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your children and your grandchildren.  Do not be deceived.
              The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up! 

             "Do not say, 'I am only a youth,' for to all whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.  Do not be afraid of them for I am with you, declares the Lord!"

    I am in Prayer for you, and for the Church!
    Spoken to you in the authority of Jesus the Christ, 
    the Name Above All Names,
    Lori Kalner
