Former attorney general John Ashcroft will be speaking and singing at 10 am Sunday, Jan. 25, at Willamette Christian Center , 2500 W. 18th Ave. Free. Ashcroft will be singing some of his original songs, including "Let the Eagle Soar" and presenting an inspirational message, says Pastor Rick Jackson. This video is one of many that either celebrate or lampoon the far right-wing Ashcroft's patriotic singing.
