How to get paid $1,000 per second!

WND

Entrepreneur offering $20 grand to recite 10 Commandments

By Bob Unruh

$1 million Gospel Tracts

The time is getting close for your opportunity to get paid $1,000 per second for reciting God’s laws to mankind.

It will be on Oct. 26 that self-made millionaire Darrel Rundus, a successful business operator in the marketing field, will start dialing telephone numbers of people who have signed up online on his Ten And Win website, giving each person, in the order they are randomly selected, an opportunity to recite the Ten Commandments in 20 seconds or less.

The first successful contestant gets the $20,000 prize.

“I will begin randomly calling those who entered and the first one I get on the phone who can list the law, in order and do it in 20 seconds or less, will win $20,000.00,” he told WND.

(The rules say the actual wording can be abbreviated, so “Do not lie” will qualify as a citation for the longer “Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”)

Rundus told WND he was distressed that Americans readily can tick off a list of 10 stores, 10 sports teams – even 10 beers, but there’s a collective “Uhmmm” when those same people are asked to cite the Ten Commandments.

He explains:

The project has drawn the support of Ray Comfort of Living Waters ministry and a partner with actor Kirk Cameron in The Way of the Master projects.

“Can you name the Ten Commandments?” Comfort’s newsletter asks. “If you can, you could win $20,000.00!!! On October 26th, 2009, our friend Darrel Rundus will randomly start drawing names and calling people who have registered to ‘Name Ten and win $20,000.00. The first qualifying person he gets on the phone who can list The Law, in order and do it in twenty seconds or less, will win $20,000.00”

The campaign has been launched on the Web at the Ten And Win site, and he’s even posted a video showing not only that it’s possible, but providing tips and hints on how to memorize the law:

Rundus said he and his wife are taking $20,000 of their own money and posting it as a prize that either will be dispatched via casher’s check or wire transfer to the first person who, on Monday, Oct. 26, answers his random telephone calls and can recite the Ten Commandments in order in 20 seconds or less.

“As a Christian I’m honestly and genuinely intrigued that by the approximate 85 percent of the people around the world today who say they believe in God, but when I asked hundreds of them to name the Ten Commandments, they couldn’t do it,” he said.

“You’re putting me on the spot,” was one of the responses he got.

From a child, it was, “We go to church every Sunday and I don’t know these.”

There’s a signup procedure on the Ten And Win website. Rundus said it will be from those who enter the competition via the website that names and telephone numbers will be selected randomly.

The calls will continue until there’s one winner, he said.

Rundus is founder and owner of the world’s largest circulation marketing firm and previously has worked with evangelist Ray Comfort and actor Kirk Cameron, who run The Way of the Master ministries.

Rundus said while the door remains open to running a future competition, for now there will be one challenge, one prize and one winner.

Rundus told WND his goal is very simple, to encourage people to learn the laws on which the United States was founded, and therefore be able knowledgeably to hold policymakers to those higher standards.

Born-alive abortion movie stuns viewers

WND

Film based on mom’s true story reaches new audiences, including Congress

By Drew Zahn

A movie based on the true story reported by WND of a woman trapped in the bathroom of an abortion clinic watching helplessly as her baby died after being born alive is being released to an increasing number of audiences, including the U.S. Congress.

The film, as WND reported, is called “22weeks,” made by a young, Puerto Rican filmmaker, Ángel Manuel Soto Vázquez. It has been shown to private audiences, screened in Puerto Rico, viewed on Capitol Hill and is now scheduled for two more public screenings this week, in Virginia Beach, Va., and San Diego, Calif.

Soto Vázquez told WND that one of the most important audiences – the actual mother depicted in the film – has already seen it and approves.

“Baby Rowan’s mom saw it and felt like it was accurate, professional, and sensitive to her, her children and women around the world who have suffered and lived through this,” said Soto Vázquez. “That was my biggest joy, knowing that I did justice to her and to the story.”

Pro-life activist and WND columnist Jill Stanek agreed that the short, 25-minute film was well acted and professionally produced. She was also stunned.

“I know the mom,” Stanek told WND. “When I saw the movie, I always had empathy for her, but when I saw the mom holding her little baby in the bathroom dying, I had a new sense of understanding. I felt her despair. I was traumatized for her. It’s definitely effective.”

Soto Vázquez told WND U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., also saw the film, “loved it,” and is now hoping to organize a full congressional screening on January 22, the anniversary of the Supreme Court‘s Roe v. Wade decision, which allows abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

The film, with promotional pages on MySpace and Facebook, describes the movie on its homepage as follows:

A young woman is locked in the bathroom of an abortion clinic after her aborted baby was born alive.

A film about decisions, their effects and the echos [sic] they leave behind. Based on the shocking WorldNetDaily article by Ron Strom, on victim’s testimonies, and real 911 calls about one of the most controversial subjects of our time, “22weeks” achieves to confront both sides of the spectrum and their perspective to the on going [sic] question: “what would you do?”

The film’s MySpace page adds, “This is the shocking true story about the reality behind abortion and the heroic struggle of a mother willing to do anything to save her child.”

The mother in the true story, identified only as Angele, since she has asked her last name not be used, was scheduled to have her 22-week pregnancy ended at the EPOC Clinic of Orlando Women’s Center in Orlando, Fla. Instead, Angele told WND, she delivered the baby alive in a restroom at the clinic and said her cries for help went unheeded by the medical staff, even when an employee saw that the tiny boy was moving.

Angele said she ran to a phone outside the clinic to call a friend for help, then curled up with her son for the full 11 minutes of his short life after birth. She bathed the baby, whom she named Rowan, and cut his umbilical cord. After medical staff demanded she surrender her son’s body, she blocked the door to keep them away and stayed trapped in the bathroom, praying and weeping, until the police arrived, she said.

Soto Vázquez told WND the film isn’t a pro-choice or pro-life agenda film, but rather the telling of a true story that allows audiences to reach their own conclusions.

“Even though the movie doesn’t take any side, the way I show it, I show both sides of the spectrum on the issue of abortion,” Soto Vázquez said. “I just let the spectator decide which side he’s going to take from the story, because it’s based on a true story.”

He said it’s a movie “about a woman who decides to get an abortion, and she gets an abortion. But it’s also the story of a woman who, after she gets the abortion, realizes what she has done when she has that mother-son connection.”

Jill Stanek warned WND that the movie is so powerful that some people may not believe it could possibly be based on a true story.

“Some people just aren’t going to believe it,” she said, “but this actually did happen, and this is not the only mother that I’m aware of who had a similar experience of aborting her baby and then when the baby was born alive having an instant change of heart, wanting everything done for her baby, and her baby dying. This is not something that doesn’t happen. It’s not isolated.”

Now Stanek hopes the film will educate the public about late-term abortions.

“There’s a segment of the population that I hope comes to grips with what they’ve just tolerated all this time. They don’t realize how far it has come,” Stanek told WND. “I’ve actually held a baby that was shelved to die because he was aborted – now we’re talking about infanticide.”

“22weeks” can be viewed by the public at a 7 p.m. and a 9 p.m. showing at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., on October 28. It will be shown at 3 p.m. at Ken Cinema in San Diego, Calif., on October 31. Future screenings, Soto Vázquez said, are planned in Kansas City, Dallas, and Los Angeles.

The film’s website, www.22weeksthemovie.com, has also added a feature where people can enter a request that the movie come to their zip code.

Dems’ abortion machinery rolls forward

FROM WND

Pro-life protests surround Denver convention scene

DENVER – Outside the security perimeter at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, pro-life advocates have assembled a 600-foot long protest sign, held rallies in front of Planned Parenthood and quietly slipped roses – in honor of the victims of abortion – into the protective metal mesh surrounding the Pepsi Center, but inside, the abortion advocacy continues undeterred.

The party states that it “strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”

Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama fits that agenda perfectly, with his documented opposition as a state lawmaker even to a requirement that abortionists provide necessary medical care to a baby who survives an abortion because it would be too much of a burden.

Further, the DNC has featured a series of speakers who move beyond just a pro-abortion stance to actively participating in the industry, including Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, the largest player in the nation’s billion dollar abortion cartel.

As LifeNews.com reported, she told delegates, “I’m proud that for only the second time in our history, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed a candidate for president, Barack Obama.”

Obama, who has supported abortions in situations where even the National Abortion Rights Action League has been neutral, is being joined on the Democratic ticket by another abortion advocate, Sen. Joe Biden.

Earlier in the convention, it was NARAL chief Nancy Keenan speaking to DNC delegates about the benefits of abortion.

“I’m proud to say that my party – the Democratic Party – is united behind and supports a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion.”

“This is appalling,” Leslie Hanks, vice president of the Colorado Right to Life, told WND. “To see millions of innocent human lives extinguished and then to celebrate that is very disappointing.”

Estimates for the death toll since the 1973 Supreme Court ruling struck down state abortion bans range from 40 million to 50 million Americans.

Hanks said it’s especially disturbing to see that a black man like Barack Obama “doesn’t understand his race is being decimated by abortion.”

The issue of Planned Parenthood locating many of its abortion businesses in minority neighborhoods, as it has in the past year with its new Denver abortion provider, reportedly the largest abortion megaclinic in the nation, was the subject of a rally in Denver during the DNC.

According to a report on American Right to Life, Ambassador Alan Keyes and other pro-life leaders condemned the fact that black women have a disproportionate share of abortions. The Power in the Park also featured officials decrying was what described as “black genocide.”

The rally included a march to the Planned Parenthood megaclinic and a conflict with security guards there, who were accused of taking and trying to keep pro-life protest signs brought by the marchers.

Keyes actually chased the security guards down the street, shouting, “Return those signs,” confronting the guards and retrieving the signs, the report said.

Keyes, who is running for president too, has told WND in several interviews that one of his highest priorities in office would be to restore to America the focus on the fundamental right to life that the nation’s founders outlined.

WND also reported when the American Right to Life Action organization captured a Guinness world record by displaying a 530-foot tall and 666-foot wide abortion protest sign weighing more than 2,700 pounds, sewn together with four miles of stitching linking 2,400 twin sheets.

And WND reported when Denver Catholic Archbishop Charles Chaput said Democrats simply don’t understand Christianity if they support abortion, which has been condemned by the faithful for millennia because it is considered homicide.

A protest staged by a pro-life organization from Kansas had members put roses in the metal mesh surrounding the Pepsi Center, which protects delegates from anyone who may want to disrupt DNC events.

Steve Curtis, American RTL Action chief, said the DNC, in nominating Obama, “even supports killing kids in the womb old enough to know their mother’s voice, sleep and dream, suck their thumbs and play with their toes.”

Another organization officer, Brian Rohrbough, lost son Daniel to the mayhem in 1999 at Columbine High School, only a few miles from the site where the DNC now is meeting, .

“When we tell kids that unborn children can be killed if their parents don’t want them, we rob them of the knowledge of the God-given right to life and we destroy their moral foundation. Abortion is wrong because it’s a baby; it’s always wrong to intentionally kill an innocent baby,” he said.

WHAT’S TRIGGERING RUSSIAN AGGRESSION?

FROM WND

Editor’s Note: The following report is excerpted from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the premium online newsletter published by the founder of WND. Subscriptions are $99 a year or, for monthly trials, just $9.95 per month for credit card users, and provide instant access for the complete reports.

Russia may have an important reason for reasserting itself in the Caucasus beyond recalling the grandeur of the old Soviet Union or even controlling the flow of oil from the Caspian Sea: It may be seeking control over a buffer zone between its borders and a rising level of radical Islam, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The region that includes the North Caucasus from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea has come to be referred to as the Caucasus Emirate. It also includes the Russian portion of North Ossetia and South Ossetia, which is part of the Republic of Georgia.

Also in Georgia is Abkhazia, another breakaway province, which is becoming increasingly Islamic and has undertaken operations in the past with Islamic rebels from Chechnya.

The region includes other neighboring Russian regions of Ingushetia, Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachayevo-Cherkessia and Chechnya, which borders Georgia to the north.

Islamic radicals look upon the Caucasus Emirate to include all of the North Caucasus and South Caucasus, which comprise Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. The commander-in-chief of the Caucasus Emirate is Dokka Umarov.

The rebels are said to be active in all the mountain areas of the North Caucasus, from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea.

One of the main ideologists of the Caucasus Emirates, Movladi Udugov, said the militants had been monitoring Russian movements near Georgia. As director of the National Information Service of the Caucasus Emirate out of Ingushetia, Udugov said its intelligence had warned him that Russia planned to attack Georgia in August. Ingushetia is east of North Ossetia in Russia.

“So far, neither Tbilisi nor Washington has turned to us with any requests or proposals,” he said.

The Caucasus Emirate is anti-Russian and monitors closely Russian troop movements. Udugov said that rebel websites had monitored Russian armored columns from Chechnya to North Ossetia and then to the Rokcky tunnel located on the South Ossetian side of the Russian-Georgian border.

The rebel websites also had reported a large column of Russian tanks and armored personnel carriers moving from Chechnya to North Ossetia via Ingushetia.

In pursuing their anti-Russian stance, Udugov and Dokka Umarov have pressed the Caucasus countries to unite. They said all Caucasians have a common culture, but Moscow has sought to foment hatred of Caucasians among Russians.

“The Russian leadership also acts like fascist thugs that kill Caucasians on the streets of Russian cities,” Umarov said.

“People in all the Muslim-inhabited territories that were conquered by Russia are periodically subjected to genocide,” Udugov said. “So if we are to speak of the adversary as the source of a threat that involves violence, enemy No. 1 is Russia. With this enemy, we are at war.”
