Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

PrayFocusExecutiveLee E. Goodman, Chairman, Federal Election Commission

Lee E. Goodman was born in March 1964 in Danville, Virginia. He attended George Washington High School, and went on to earn a BA in American Government and Rhetoric Communication Studies from George Washington University. After college, he worked as a policy analyst for the Fund for America’s Future, a political action committee. He returned to Charlottesville to attend Virginia Law School, and received his J.D. in 1990.

Goodman engaged in the private practice of law until he was tapped to be Special Assistant Attorney General and Associate General Counsel to the University of Virginia, where he spent two years. He then went to work in the office of Governor Jim Gilmore, where he served as Deputy Director of Policy. He was also Chief of Staff to the chairman of the Congressional Advisory Committee on Electronic Commerce.

He returned to private practice. In June 2013, he was nominated by President Barack Obama to the Federal Election Commission, a position he has held since October 2013.

IN THE NEWS: The Federal Elections Commission has reached an agreement on campaign financing, following months of negotiations between Republicans and Democrats on the six-member FEC, which had been deadlocked on the matter. Ultimately, at least four of the commissioners agreed to support a package of three rule-making measures designed to conform to the high court’s decisions. The commission plans to formally approve the new rules during a meeting set for October 9. “I’m going to make this a priority to proceed on this before Election Day, 2014,” FEC Chairman Lee Goodman said. “We exist for Election Day.” The final language of the rules, however, is not expected to be released until roughly a week before the meeting, making it unlikely that the regulations would have any significant effect on the November midterms.

Executive Branch Prayer Needs

PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION

Attorney General Eric Holder is again asking a federal court to delay the transfer of disputed documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious to a House committee. Roughly 64,000 pages of documents are ordered to be handed over.

With little fanfare, the Obama Administration through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, now requires new gun buyers to declare their race and ethnicity, a policy with little law enforcement value.

Pray about current and former policies of the Administration relative to gun control or gun sales.
