Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 13, 2013
Two-time NCAA All American, Nana Meriwether was crowned as the newest Miss USA in a ceremony hosted by Donald Trump on Wednesday. Miss Meriwether took over the reigns as Miss USA from the former Miss USA Olivia Culpo, who recently won the title of Miss Universe in December. According to organizers of the 2013 Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, the new Miss USA will be making the ball her debut event; the theme of the event Promoting Peace, Diplomacy & Global Unity is in keeping with her humanitarian efforts.
The 2013 Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, presented by GrupoMex will celebrate the second inauguration of President Obama with an immensely diverse crowd of individuals from the public and private sectors – ranging from one of the most respected and longest-serving members of the U.S. Congress; Congressman John Conyers, of Michigan – to the beautiful Miss USA. The event promises to be a very exciting and entertaining evening, while also taking major strides for funding programs such as agriculture in underserved regions, clean water & sanitation for poverty-stricken global citizens and orphanages for AIDS/HIV, all focal points of Miss USAs The Meriwether Foundation.
I am incredibly honored to be attending the Ambassadors Inaugural Ball, said Miss USA Nana Meriwether. As the newly crowned Miss USA, I hope to use my title to raise awareness for The Meriwether Foundation, which focuses on improving the health and well-being of people living in rural villages in five countries in Southern Africa.
Ambassadors Inaugural Ball Co-Chair and Host Committee member, Dr. Tebelelo Seretse, Ambassador of the Republic of Botswana to the United States & Canada, commented that We are very happy to have Miss USA among the honored guests to be in attendance at our inaugural day celebration. Our mission in this event is to build financial support and awareness for several deserving non-profit beneficiaries, with The Meriwether Foundation being central among them.
Honorary Consul to the Republic of Botswana, Mr. Robert Shumake [Business Chair of the Ambassadors Inaugural Ball], added aside from the obvious beauty and intelligence that Ms. Meriwether possesses, I am personally elated at how she has also excelled athletically during her college career. As the founder of the Shumake Relays (the largest outdoor track & field event in the Midwest), I have a firm grasp of the commitment that it takes to set and reach goals; this is the foundation of the Shumake Relays – where we believe that sports can become a type of universal language for kids and adults – surpassing the boundaries of class, color or location.
Born in South Africa while her parents were doing volunteer work there, it would appear that Miss Meriwether was destined to lend her energies to humanitarian causes. The Meriwether Foundation was co-founded by her long-time humanitarian father; Dr. W. D. Meriwether, and provides programs throughout several areas of South Africa.
About Miss USA:
Nana Meriwether is an African American with strong ties to South Africa and many of its suffering denizens. During her reign, Nana will continue her work for The Meriwether Foundation as well as working with some of the official cause alliances of the Miss Universe Organization including the USO, the Same Sky Trade Initiative, Best Buddies, Gildas Club and the National Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

Obamacare If there was a thermometer that measured peoples political election temperature it would probably be high enough for people to be concerned and want to call the doctor says Dr. Houston Vetter. Whether a Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal or progressive, it seems politics are at a fever pitch and the nation hasn’t even gotten into the heart of the election cycle yet so say’s Dr. Houston Vetter. As JOHN HINDERAKER reported on August 12, 2012 in POWERLINE Democrats back off the claim that Mitt Romney was responsible for a womans death by cancer.
Quoting John Hinderaker, Politics is about blame. While, honesty, accuracy and truth are the road kill. The problem: Politicians are always aware of this; the general public not so much. The reason politics and religion do not mix is for some, politics is their religion, which means if you dont believe like me you dont count.. In the mean time frustration, anger and fear builds up stronger and stronger like a nuclear reactor meltdown waiting for Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas to set things straight, as in the movie, The China Syndrome. Lucid Living Seminars believes they have an answer for all the fear worry and dread that has been triggered by Obamacare and the negative election atmosphere.
Obamacare is just the tip of the iceberg that is polarizing this years Presidential debate. Polls show an overwhelming majority of the U.S. population, including the healthcare field itself, is not in favor of the Obamacare ruling despite the Supreme Court decision. The hope and change many hoped for changed when they saw some of the things they got. One example, when President Obama was inaugurated gas was $ 1.70 to $ 1.90, four years later $ 3.59 to $ 4.10.
In an effort to provide support and real hope and change people can depend on regardless of age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, liberal or conservative and regardless of which way the election goes, Lucid Living Seminars is presenting a new training seminar designed to help struggling individuals get back the sense of safety, self worth and personal power that has been lost and to help neighborhoods in the process. This is healthcare reform on the individual and personal level. Addressing the emotional pain and problems from a cutting edge unique Quantum Physics (Spiritual) perspective makes for quick permanent change. Click Here To Watch The Video.

Daniel Whyte III says that “on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 the President of the United States and leader of the free world, Barack Obama, broke thousands of years of Godly biblical tradition and announced to the world that he supports homosexual marriage.” Along with other fasting opportunities, Evangelist Daniel Whyte III is calling upon all believers to join him in fasting at least one meal every Wednesday through the election (everyone is encouraged to fast the whole 24 hour period, but if you cannot do that, please fast at least one meal), praying and asking God for the following:
“1. That all races understand that neither Romney nor Obama is the answer, but Jesus is the answer.
2. That we as pastors and churches repent of our hypocrisy because the church is more guilty than the government for the state of affairs in this country. The Bible says, “Judgment must begin at the house of God.”
3. That both Obama and Romney, who claim to be believers, would confess their sins and repent of lying, dishonesty, hypocrisy, and intentionally deceiving people for political gain.
4. The president of Gospel Light Society is also asking that Christians “pray that President Obama will repent of being a Judas and betraying the Lord, betraying the Lord’s church, betraying the Word of God, betraying thousands of black, white, and hispanic pastors who tried to help him, betraying America, and betraying his own people who have overwhelmingly supported him; and as a Christian, that he would stand up, humble himself, and apologize to the nation for making such an abominable decision and statement for political advantage and money.”
5. For the salvation of millions of people in this country and in the world, including those in the homosexual community.”
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God…” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
“And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29)
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
This twenty-four hour fast will begin after breakfast on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 and will end at breakfast on Thursday, May 17, 2012. This one-day fast will commence an extended period of fasting and prayer which will end on November 6, 2012 (election day). Gospel Light Society is calling on all Christians around the world who believe in traditional marriage and who are willing to stand up for God’s Word to unite in fasting and prayer for any length of time during this 165 day period. Those who wish to participate may fast for 1 day, 3 days, 7 days, 10 days, 14 days, 21 days, 28 days, 30 days, 40 days, or any amount of time that God leads them to fast.
Gospel Light Society International is a global online ministry that seeks to present the Gospel to all people, in every language, around the world “by any means necessary”. In many languages, GLS seeks to share the Gospel of Christ and help new believers grow in the saving knowledge of Jesus by connecting them with a church or a home Bible study group. For more information, visit http://www.GospelLightSociety.com.
Daniel Whyte III has spoken in meetings across the United States and in over twenty-five foreign countries. He is the author of over twenty books. He is also the president of Gospel Light Society International, a worldwide evangelistic ministry that reaches thousands with the Gospel each week, as well as president of Torch Ministries International, a Christian literature ministry which publishes a monthly magazine called The Torch Leader. He is heard by thousands each week on his radio broadcasts, The Prayer Motivator Devotional and the Prayer Motivator Minute, as well as Gospel Light Minute X, the Gospel Light Minute, the Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message and The Prophet Daniel’s Report. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from Bethany Divinity College, a Bachelor’s degree in Religion from Texas Wesleyan University, and a Master’s degree in Religion from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been married to the former Meriqua Althea Dixon, of Christiana, Jamaica for twenty-five years. God has blessed their union with seven children.
Rick Santorum is arguing that President Obama is undermining religious liberty and families in America in part because of his stance on birth control that is supported by a majority of Catholics in America (but not the Catholic Church).

(PRWEB) April 21, 2012
Launched less than four months ago, Seamus2012.com has become a popular clearinghouse of news, videos and information about GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and his family dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, which was strapped to the car roof during a 12-hour drive to their vacation home in Canada.
Its no surprise why this story continues to have such staying power in the media, says Seamus2012.coms creator Bill Katovsky. Who does that to their family dog – and then thinks there was nothing wrong? Its a blatant form of animal cruelty.
Although the incident took place back in 1983, it first publicly surfaced in a Boston Globe profile of Romney during the previous presidential campaign. Seamus obviously wasnt enjoying himself on the roof of the station wagon. He had a messy bout of diarrhea that streamed down the car windows, causing one of the Romney kids to scream in horror. So Mitt stopped at a gas station, hosed down the windows, got back in the car, and continued driving. Seamus remained in the dog crate on the car roof.
Pet lovers agree that Romney belongs in the doghouse, not White House. Gail Collins has mentioned the car roof story 41 times in her New York Times column. (Theres a Mitt OMeter counter on Seamus2012.com that keeps count.)
Mitts aloofness, utter strangeness, and lack of an empathy gene are symbolized by the Seamus saga, continues Katovsky. Romney made a fortune in the private sector buying up companies and indifferently laying off workers. He saw nothing wrong with his callous actions then, either. Its an out-of-touch character issue that resonates among the average voter.
Seamus is a story with legs, as made apparent with a Dogs Against Romney Facebook page, New Yorker magazine cover, a Rachel Maddow special segment on MSNBC, two features on CNN, numerous op-ed columns in places like the Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, and the subject just last week of ABCs Diane Sawyers interview with Mitt and Ann Romney.
Theres even a new pro-Obama DogPAC hoping to raise more than $ 1 million to advertise in battleground sites.
What could be further damaging to the Romney presidential campaign is that National Dog Day falls on August 26, which happens to be the day before the start of the Republican National Convention.
Dogs dont vote, says Katovsky, but their owners do. And there are over 70 million U.S households that own a pet. This alone could have a galvanizing effect on the presidential race.
Popular posts on Seamus2012.com include a Hitler parody video that Katovsky created with over 40,000 YouTube views, Seamus crossword puzzle, and a story that looked into the Romneys Canadian vacation home that was located inside a formerly restricted community called Beach O Pines. Mitts father, a former governor who also ran for president, had built the cottage in the early 50s. Before a landmark Canadian Supreme Court ruling was handed down, followed by the enforcement of an anti-discrimination law, this exclusive community on the shores of Lake Huron, where the Romneys vacationed each summer, was off-limits to any person of the Jewish, Hebrew, Semitic, Negro or coloured race or blood.
The issue of race and religion as reflected in Beach O Pines should be an even bigger political story here in the U.S. than what Romney did to Seamus, says Katovsky. Yet the media which travel in packs has neglected reporting on this rather shameful part of Romneys family history.
Katovsky is the author of several books including Embedded: The Media at War in Iraq, which won the Harvards Goldsmith Book Prize and Patriots Act: Voices of Dissent and the Risk of Speaking Out, which was a Book Sense National Selection; His writings have appeared in the Huffington Post, Salon, and San Francisco Chronicle. He owned a golden retriever named Rockee. They were best pals for 14 years. Rockee almost always rode in the front passenger seat.
