            The Barbara Lee Family Foundation’s latest research helps to decode the idea of a qualified woman candidate. It reveals what makes a woman “qualified” in voters’ minds, and how one establishes qualifications and likeability at the same time. Featuring Adrienne Kimmell of The Barbara Lee Family Foundation What do people mean when they say they’ll vote for a “qualified” woman? Pitch Perfect: Winning Strategies for Women Candidates answers this question, and provides a clear road map for women who are running for major statewide office: how to introduce themselves to voters to demonstrate their qualifications; what language contributes to voters believing they are qualified; and how to present themselves in a way that conveys they are qualified. Women still have higher hurdles to clear than the guys. But The Barbara Lee Family Foundation's research provides clear strategies to get them there.

              Dr. Lawless discussed her brand new report, Men Rule: The Continued Under-Representation of Women in U.S. Politics. The study, which was co-written with Richard L. Fox, takes a hard look at the substantial gender gap in political ambition that exists today in the United States. They conclude that when women do run for public office, they are just as likely as their male counterparts to win their races. Dr. Jennifer L. Lawless, a national leader and researcher on women and politics, is the Director of the Women & Politics Institute at American University.

                  The lame duck session of Congress is quickly drawing to a close and it's time to decide - Should the richest 2% contribute to a deficit their tax cuts helped create? The Bush tax cuts are set to expire on December 31st and the Republicans are holding middle class tax cuts and tax credits hostage in effort to extend tax cuts for the rich. And it doesn't stop there. Featuring Frank Clemente of Americans for Tax Fairness The 'fiscal cliff' includes painful cuts under sequestration to middle class priorities that include education, law enforcement, and public infrastructure - all of which will greatly impact state budgets. As well, if Congress attempts further cuts without asking the wealthy to pay their fair share, Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare could be on the chopping block. Join us to learn how you can become part of the fight to put the nation back on track, and have Americans who have prospered pay their fair share.

                    In Focus on the Strategy, using audio and video clips of Christian leaders, Bob Enyart presents seven lines of evidence that our national ministries have endorsed legal positivism, elevating man's rules and the Constitution above God, and giving them precedence above eternal laws such as Thou shall not murder. This blockbuster DVD demonstrates that legal positivism (secular humanism in law) is eroding even the personal morality of Christian believers. On Nov. 2, 2005 Family Research Council gave us an example of raw legal positivism when Gary Bauer defended Judge Samuel Alito for voting to uphold Partial Birth Abortion for process reasons, because it was his job as a judge. However, God cares about the souls of judges as much as others; and a judge who upholds the murder of the innocent is no less guilty before God than a criminal who kills his victim. Whereas Peter said to the leaders of his day, "We must obey God rather than men," our Christian leaders have lost their way, and now openly embrace legal positivism. This humanist theory requires obedience to the U.S. Constitution, even when that obedience results in violating God's eternal, moral commands including Thou Shall Not Murder. Flip Benham, national director of Operation Rescue / OSA, produced this one-hour blockbuster analysis of Christian political strategy. Filmed before a live audience of 300 Christian activists, in Focus on the Strategy Bob Enyart reveals to the public the private presentation he gave at Focus on the Family to Tom Minnery, Dr. James Dobson's VP of Public Policy. This political analysis ends with four specific recommendations for Christians to implement as we seek to influence our culture and government for Christ.
