My fellow Americans, our nation has never faced such circumstances as it has now. The American way of life is under attack on two fronts. On one hand, we have the adherents of a brutal 7th-century creed that seeks to drag the whole world down to their level. On the other hand, we have the forces of secularism and social liberalism who seek to eliminate all traces of Christianity from the public sphere and impose their worldview on the American people.
I hear many people claim that Al-Qaeda and the like does not represent true Islam. Obviously, those people have never cracked open the Koran. If they did, they would understand that its hateful verses are the magic carpet on which terrorists ride.
The funny thing is, even though Islam stands in opposition that everything liberals believe in, they still coddle Muslims and oppose any attempts to fight Islamic terrorism effectively. You know why? Because they share the Muslims' hatred of Christianity.
Think about it. Our children are not allowed to pray in school. We're not allowed to say "Merry Christmas" lest some atheist who hears it gets offended and files a lawsuit. People who try to get homosexuals to reform and give up their wicked ways are accused of "hate speech" and silenced. School textbooks are filled with the theory of evolution, keeping our children from learning about the true origin of the world.
The most outrageous part is that some American Christians have acquiesced to this, saying things like "Jesus never condemned homosexuality" or "There is nothing in the Bible that contradicts evolution." Make no mistake, if you say something like this, you're part of the problem.
Thankfully, there is a solution. As your president, I will steer this nation back on the path intended by the Founding Fathers. I will do my best to promote Christian values and beat back the dark forces of secularism. After all, only by regaining our way can we deal with the threats that besiege us.
God bless you all.
Rick Santorum's speech upon assuming the presidency, April 29, 2005
Well that really sets the tone for things to get even worse.
President Santorum has halted the drawdown of American forces from Iraq. In a speech to a joint session of Congress, Santorum said "the Iraqi people need us more than ever right now" citing the continued Islamist insurgency and the continued anarchy in Iran.
By executive order, President Santorum has abolished Don't Ask Don't Tell, the policy that allowed homosexuals to serve in the US military as long as they kept their sexual orientation to themselves.
Under Executive Order 13394, potential recruits to the United States Armed Forces are now required to disclose their orientation upon applying for service. Those who identify as homosexual or bisexual are to be immediately turned down, in accordance with the US military's longstanding ban on open homosexuality.
The order has drawn widespread condemnation from LGBT advocacy groups and praise from social conservatives.
SECRETARY OF DEFENSE RESIGNS OVER EXECUTIVE ORDER
Wall Street Journal, May 31, 2005
Secretary of Defense Gordon R. England has announced his resignation from the cabinet, citing Executive Order 13394.
In a statement to the press, England called XO13394 "a thinly disguised attempt to impose Christian fundamentalist values on our armed forces."

When confronted with Santorum's statement, the king said "Mr. Santorum must remember that not everyone shares his bigoted views." Both the ruling PSOE and opposition People's Party have condemned Santorum's remarks.

The Daily Mail, July 8, 2005
The Indian military junta has passed a series of laws restricting the freedom of Indian Muslims.
Under the so-called Anti-Terrorism Defense Act, Muslims are prohibited from gathering in large groups, obtaining firearms licenses, and proselytizing to non-Muslims. All mosques must register themselves to the government, and any mosque that is determined to be spreading "harmful teachings" will be shut down.
Human rights groups have condemned the measures as an attack on religious freedom.
SECRETARY OF EDUCATION ACCUSED OF CHILD MOLESTATION
New York Times, July 12, 2005

One of Hastert's alleged victims says that he has bribing his victims with taxpayer money to keep silent throughout his congressional career.
President Santorum has promised to punish Hastert for his crimes, stating that "There is no room for sexual deviants in this administration." Reaction from Congress has been mixed. "On one hand, I fully support Hastert being punished for what he did to those boys" said Representative John Conyers (D-MI). "On the other hand, I know Santorum is gonna take advantage of Hastert's removal to appoint some nutjob."

Three and a half years after the devastating nuclear war with Pakistan, India's population continues to decline.
According to a recent census by the Indian government, the population has fallen to 890 million people. International observers blame the decline on famine, disease, nuclear fallout, and emigration to escape the repressive military-run regime, which has repeatedly failed to fulfill its promises to step aside and allow democratic elections.
NORTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT BREAKS UP OVER LAKE MICHIGAN
Wall Street Journal, July 14, 2005
An early-morning flight from Detroit to Minneapolis ended in tragedy when the plane disintegrated in the skies over Lake Michigan.
Northwest Airlines Flight 2804 was cruising at 32,000 feet with 75 passengers and five crew on board when the plane, a 28-year old McDonnell-Douglas DC-9, suddenly disappeared from ATC radar screens. Hours later, USCG vessels found plane debris on the surface of Lake Michigan, close to Flight 2804's last known location. Submersibles have been dispatched to the area to search for debris and bodies on the lake's bottom.
SENATOR KOHL AMONG FLIGHT 2804 CASUALTIES
Milwaukee Journal Sentiel, July 14, 2005
Herb Kohl, the Democratic senior Senator for Wisconsin, has been confirmed as one of the casualties of Northwest Airlines Flight 2804.
Northwest Airlines has released the passenger manifest of Flight 2804, and Kohl's name has shown up on the list.
Junior Senator Russ Feingold has called it "a great loss for the state of Wisconsin and the nation as a whole." President Santorum, in a statement to reporters, said "I may have disagreed with Kohl on multiple issues, but I am as saddened as everyone else to see him dead in such a manner."
Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the DC-9 to break up in flight over Lake Michigan. Already, many are speculating that the plane was brought down by an act of terrorism.
ASHCROFT: Yes, Mr. President. I've got agents being dispatched to mosques all around the country with listening devices ready for installation. Within a week or so, we should be able to eavesdrop on everything said within those walls.
LOTT: This whole thing is confidential, right? If Congress or the Supreme Court gets wind of this, it could get shut down as a violation of the First Amendment.
SANTORUM: Pffft. We all know that First Amendment protections only apply to Christian denominations. Anybody who believes otherwise is simply quote-mining. Besides, it's not like we're throwing Muslims into death camps-we're just monitoring their places of worship so we can find and root out terrorists and their clerical supporters.
LOTT: The Supreme Court and Congress don't see it that way.
ASHCROFT: I know. That's why I've instructed the agents to keep the listening device installations as covert as possible.
Taped conversation between President Santorum, Vice President Lott, and FBI Director John Ashcroft, July 14, 2005. The tape would eventually be uncovered in 2011 and played to the Sotomayor Commission.
The FBI has announced that they have arrested the man responsible for smuggling a bomb onboard Northwest Airlines Flight 2804.
35-year old Daniel Patrick Boyd allegedly went to Detroit Metropolitan Airport disguised as an airport baggage handler, where he swapped a random suitcase with an identical suitcase containing a bomb as luggage was loading onto the doomed flight.
Boyd, a drywall installation contractor from Willow Spring, North Carolina, had converted to Islam as a young man and reportedly fought alongside the mujahideen against the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan during its final days.
Five months after Erasure singer Andy Bell was murdered at a concert, Aylesbury police have captured the woman responsible for his death.
21-year old Samantha Lewthwaite was arrested after an informant told police that she had bragged about killing the openly gay singer. Lewthwaite, a convert to Islam, was allegedly motivated by a religious-based aversion to homosexuality.
Hurricane Katrina made landfall in southeastern Louisiana this morning, bringing 125-MPH winds and torrential rain.
WRITER CRITICAL OF GOVT HANDLING OF KATRINA DISAPPEARS
The Telegraph, September 10, 2005
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof has been reported missing by his family.
Two days before Kristof was reported missing, he had wrote a column in the New York Times slamming the US government for its handling of Hurricane Katrina, particularly the lack of assistance for low-income sections of New Orleans. The next day, Kristof failed to show up for work.
"There's no reason to believe the Santorum administration had any role in the disappearence of Nicholas Kristof. America is not the kind of country to imprison or murder journalists for criticizing the government. Besides, as an adult Kristof has the right to be missing."
As India descends further into international isolation, President Santorum has paid a visit to the embattled country.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai, Santorum defended India's discriminatory laws against Muslims as "a necessary evil in the fight against Islamic terrorism." When asked if he would implement similar laws in the US, Santorum said "terrorism in America hasn't gotten severe enough yet to justify such measures, but I would fully support such laws if they became necessary in America."
