Rader’s female backers say they still support him in Senate District 27, despite Benacquisto’s rape revelation

After participating in a press conference in downtown West Palm Beach Thursday afternoon to show her support for state senate candidate Kevin Rader, Tracy Pafford (left) talks with Mona Reis, founder and president of the Presidential Women’s Center. During the press conference Pafford revealed for the first time publicly that she was raped at the age of 14.

Supported Florida state senator Kevin Rader (D) in his attacks on Lizbeth Benacquisto, his Republican opponent, in ads as an “extremist.” First, Rader aired a commercial arguing that Benacquisto’s “extremist” allies would turn women into “criminals” by outlawing abortion in all cases, including after rape or incest. Then Benacquisto struck back with an ad disclosing that she herself was a rape victim – and alleging that Rader had “crossed a line” by “exploiting this crime, suggesting that I wouldn’t stand up for other victims.”

Clinic Fire Fans Flames Of Simmering Abortion Debate

July 07, 2005 – By Howard Goodman – Commentary

Mona Reis was in Boston on vacation Monday night, watching Fourth of July fireworks and listening to the Boston Pops, when her cell phone went off.

It was her security-alarm service, telling her a fire alarm had been tripped in the clinic she owns in West Palm Beach.

Another phone call confirmed it was a fire.

Reis called three staff members, who hurried to the scene.

Soon one called her back, in tears.

“She was saying they wouldn’t let her in, and there was smoke everywhere, and she was shaking, and she’d call me back when she learned anything,” Reis said.

Right then, Reis told herself this was no accident.

In its 25 years, the Presidential Women’s Center had been spared the violence that has plagued many clinics around the nation that perform abortions: bombings, vandalism, anthrax threats. Even murder.

But the center’s luck ran out.

On Wednesday, having found evidence of a fire accelerant, police were calling the West Palm fire “suspicious.”

“Now we’re part of the national violence statistics,” Reis said. “We’re `arson.’ And maybe it will turn out to be other things, as we go along.”

So this is what the rockets’ red glare and bombs bursting in air have come to mean to one zealous faction of the anti-abortion movement.

Last year over the Fourth of July weekend, someone threw an explosive through a window at the WomenCare Center in Lake Worth.

The blaze scorched patient records and medical equipment. The building on North Federal Highway is still closed.

Two years ago, over Memorial Day weekend, a Tamarac abortion clinic was torched and vandalized.

It’s no exaggeration to call these incidents “terrorism.” It’s violence intended to scare people so they no longer pursue a certain goal. That’s the very definition of terrorism.

Yet we don’t hear much condemnation from a federal government that’s vowed to fight terror in all its forms.

Since 1993, six doctors and other clinic employees have been shot and killed, according to the National Abortion Federation, an association of abortion providers. A police officer died in a Birmingham, Ala., clinic bombing. Five other abortion workers have been shot and injured.

“I have doctors all over the country who wear bulletproof vests every day,” said a National Abortion Federation security official, who insisted on anonymity out of safety concerns.

Reis absorbed the sense of risk long ago.

“We are very well-versed in security measures,” she told me in an interview two years ago.

She’s seen herself depicted on anti-abortion Web site as Hitler. In her neighborhood, leaflets have circulated identifying her as an abortion provider and giving her home address.

“We’ve had drills, security training, in-service with law enforcement and we’ve been doing this for years. We’ve often had bomb threat and bomb squads,” she said Wednesday.

“Unfortunately, we are experienced in this.”

The smell of burning plastic hung in the air. Windows were shattered. Electricity was off. Yet the staff was answering phones and scheduling appointments at another facility.

“We look forward to having our doors open as expeditiously as possible,” she said.

Though her voice was a little shaky, she said, “They’re not going to stop our resolve.”

It takes a certain cast of mind to set fires or shoot doctors in the name of “pro-life.”

But all through history, extremists have claimed that some higher calling justifies violence.

From John Brown’s attempted insurrection to free the slaves to al-Qaida’s suicide-skyjackings.

Abortion is an issue that brooks little compromise from the anti-abortion or pro-choice forces. The emotions will only get hotter as the battle heats up over a successor to Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

I’m afraid it will be a long time before we see the end of this kind of fire and smoke.

Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Florida Sidewalk Counselor

Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach must be feeling the pressure. Mary Susan Pine, a successful sidewalk counselor, has pled for many years with Presidential Women’s Center customers to give life to their children. Mona Reis, the owner of Presidential, finally got someone to attempt to scare off Pine. That someone was your U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his south Florida coworkers.

On August 18, 2010, Holder’s office filed a federal civil action (lawsuit) against Pine and, by extension, those “acting in concert” with her. The only law violation alleged was the aged Federal Access to Clinic Entrances Act (F.A.C.E.) passed by Bill Clinton in 1994. The act made it a federal crime to block the entrances to a medical facility, but abortion clinics were the sole beneficiary of the law since they were the only ones being blocked on any regular basis prior to F.A.C.E.’s passage.

Pine is represented by Orlando’s Liberty Counsel. Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel Mathew Staver said in an August 24 press release, “This lawsuit by Attorney General Eric Holder is politically motivated and patently frivolous. It is designed to intimidate pro-lifers. We will not allow the Attorney General to push around little people and intimidate them for their pro-life beliefs.”

The fuss, apparently, is a nine-month old incident in which Presidential employees claim that Pine blocked a car for a few minutes. Although Pine denies it, one can assume that the clinic with its 15+ cameras has something on video to convince them they finally got Pine in some kind of law violation.

Hilariously, Holder’s suit alleges that Pine, “unless restrained… will continue to engage in illegal conduct”. Except that Pine has been there for years prior to the so-called “incident” and even nine months since then. Even if the allegations prove true, Holder and his abortion industry allies seek to allege that merely a few minutes delay en route to kill a baby could be grounds for violation of F.A.C.E.

Liberty Counsel says that FACE can only be applied to actual physical force or threat of force based on Cheffer v. Reno, a case already won by Liberty Counsel that was dismissed in district court and further lost on appeal by then U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno. Apparently, Holder’s office thinks this momentary car stoppage worthy of a second attempt – at taxpayer expense, of course. Amazingly, it took six government employees to file a suit barely four pages long.

What does Presidential Women’s Center hope to gain? The suit calls for a $10,000 fine against Pine, but the finger-crossing of Reis and her clinic workers have to be focused on the first request for judgment: “An order prohibiting Defendant, Mary Susan Pine, fro entering any driveway leading into the Presidential Women’s Center parking lot.” A quick glance at the aerial photo of Presidential tells you why. If you can’t stand in the driveway (traffic or not), there’s absolutely no visibility into the clinic’s parking lot. Which means customers of Presidential can’t see Pine or other prolife activists. With the City of Palm Beach already in bed with Presidential in their 2006 noise ordinance (which is basically interpreted as “whisper quietly amongst yourselves or else”), the only thing left to do is to make prolife activists disappear.

In other words: “We’re drowning in debt and if this lady doesn’t stop talking to our customers, we’re not going to have any left.” One wonders why Reis hasn’t put her video online at YouTube to show the world how intrusive Pine’s action was. If we get a copy, we’ll happily do it for her.

Below is the complaint as filed in U.S. District (federal) Court on August 18, 2010. The case is currently filed in the court of Senior Judge Kenneth Ryskamp, a Reagan appointee.

Case 9:10-cv-80971-KLR (Holder v. Pine)

Holder, Jr., Attorney General of the United States of America (the “United States Attorney General”), by the undersigned attorneys, asserts a civil cause of action under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (“FACE”), 18 U.S.C. § 248 (1994), enacted into law May 26, 1994, as follows:

UPDATE: Eric Holder’s Political Prosecution of Pro-Life Educator Thrown Out of Court

Judge suspects conspiracy between Eric Holder’s DOJ and abortion clinic to violate pro-lifers’ First Amendment rights

West Palm Beach, FL – A federal judge has ended Attorney General Eric Holder’s two-year political prosecution of pro-life educator Mary Susan Pine. Holder accused Pine of obstructing the entrance to an abortion clinic, in violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (“FACE”). Holder sought thousands of dollars in fines against Pine, as well as a permanent injunction banning her from counseling women on the public sidewalk outside the Presidential Women’s Center (“PWC”) abortion clinic, where she has faithfully ministered for over 20 years. Liberty Counsel successfully defended Pine.

In granting summary judgment, Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp concluded that “the evidence could not lead a rational jury to find that Ms. Pine’s conduct [i.e., having peaceful conversations with clinic visitors on a public sidewalk] constituted a physical obstruction within the meaning of FACE.” He also concluded that the government lacked evidence to prove not just one, but “all three elements of its FACE claim.” Judge Ryskamp chastised Holder for seeking to apply federal law in a clearly unconstitutional manner: “Stretching the terms of FACE to apply to this case … so that a desire to provide people with information about alternatives to abortion constitutes an unlawful motive, would unjustifiably impinge on Ms. Pine’s First Amendment rights.”

The Government’s decision to prosecute Pine despite having no evidence of wrongdoing prompted Judge Ryskamp to suspect a conspiracy at the highest level of the Obama Administration: “The Court is at a loss as to why the Government chose to prosecute this particular case in the first place,” he wrote. “The Court can only wonder whether this action was the product of a concerted effort between the Government and the PWC, which began well before the date of the incident at issue, to quell Ms. Pine’s activities rather than to vindicate the rights of those allegedly aggrieved by Ms. Pine’s conduct.”

Harry Mihet, Senior Litigation Counsel for Liberty Counsel, commented: “This is a tremendous victory not just for Susan Pine, but for the First Amendment and the pro-life movement. Attorney General Holder sought to use federal law as a billy club against pro-lifers, but received instead a clobbering from the very Constitution he had sworn to protect. Freedom-loving Americans everywhere should rejoice.”

DOJ drops case against Florida pro-life sidewalk counselor, pays her $120G

Published April 02, 2012 | FoxNews.com

The Department of Justice has given up its bid to prosecute a pro-life counselor and agreed to pay her $120,000 in a case a judge said never should have been brought.

Mary Susan Pine, who stands outside abortion clinics and advises women not to have the procedure, was accused of blocking a car from entering a Florida abortion clinic in 2009. In December, a judge threw out the case, in which the government sought $10,000 in fines and a permanent injunction barring Pine from counseling women outside the Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. The government had been appealing the ruling until it was announced Monday it would no longer pursue the case.

Pine’s lawyer said she was a victim of a politically-driven prosecution.

“It is irresponsible for the U.S. Department of Justice to place politics above principle when deciding to prosecute, and thus attempt to silence, a pro-life sidewalk counselor without any evidence of wrongdoing,” Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said in a statement. “When the nation’s highest law enforcement officer files suit against any citizen, the suit must be based on the law coupled with compelling evidence. Anything less is an abuse of the high office.”

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice defended prosecution decision as “based on the facts presented during our investigations and the applicable federal laws.” In Pine’s case, “the department made a decision to settle with the defendant rather than continue with costly litigation.”

Florida District Judge Kenneth Ryskamp said in December the case appeared to be part of a “concerted effort” between the government and the Presidential Women’s Center.

“The Court is at a loss as to why the government chose to prosecute this particular case in the first place,” Ryskamp wrote in a summary judgment order against the feds. “The court can only wonder whether this action was the product of a concerted effort between the government and PWC, which began well before the date of the incident at issue, to quell Ms. Pine’s activities rather than to vindicate the rights of those allegedly aggrieved by Ms. Pine’s conduct.”

Under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) federal law, DOJ officials alleged that Pine obstructed a car from entering the Florida abortion clinic on Nov. 19, 2009.

Pine, who could not be reached for comment, had denied obstructing any vehicle from entering the clinic.

In the Days of These Kings (Book)

Perfect-bound Paperback — 740 pages

The Book of Daniel in Preterist Perspective

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).

This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan
