Mike Huckabee: Obama Must Resign For Protecting Islam Over America

At one point during Friday’s “Presidential Family Forum” in Iowa, the discussion descended into a debate over Ted Cruz’s call for Secretary of State John Kerry to resign because he, along with President Obama and Hillary Clinton, “served as apologists for radical Islamic terrorists.”

Naturally, Mike Huckabee tried to one-up Cruz’s stance, and instead said that President Obama should step down for supposedly being more concerned with attacking Republicans than defeating ISIS.

“I’d like for Barack Obama to resign if he’s not going to protect America and instead protect the image of Islam,” he said.

Donald Trump Campaign Repeats Lie That Thousands Partied On 9/11

Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that “thousands and thousands” of Arab American residents of Jersey City, New Jersey, celebrated as the Twin Towers collapsed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. This event never occurred, but Trump still insists he saw it on TV.

In order to defend this patently false claim, Trump campaign aide Dan Scavino took to Twitter last night in an attempt to back up Trump’s assertion:

Scavino pointed to unproven claims that as many as six people were detained following the attacks.

He did not link to any news stories but he was likely referring to what the AP described at the time as “rumors of rooftop celebrations of the attack by Muslims,” which the AP determined were “unfounded.”

But even Scavino’s six suspected 9/11 celebrators still fall far short of Trump’s claim that “thousands and thousands” were celebrating, and the campaign still hasn’t come forward with the television footage that Trump insists is real.

Ben Carson: Monitor 'Anti-American' Groups, Churches And Media Outlets

Ben Carson called for a return to McCarthyism this weekend, telling a group of reporters at a campaign stop in South Carolina that he would support the government “monitoring a mosque or any church or any organization or any school or any press corps where there was a lot of radicalization and things that were anti-American.” The Associated Press noted that Carson “did not expound on just how an administration would determine what constitutes ‘radicalization’ or ‘anti-American.’”

However, Carson has left many clues as to what he considers “anti-American” … and it mostly means the political left.

Back in May, Carson said a rally attendee was “absolutely right” when he claimed that the Obama administration holds a “strong anti-American spirit that is undermining everything that we stand for.” He went on to say that the “progressive agenda” was pushing an anti-American plot, citing author W. Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.”

Carson frequently mentions Skousen’s conspiracy-ridden book, which paints America as a country under attack from a grand but secretive leftist agenda, on the campaign trial.

For example, he told a National Organization for Marriage gala that the gay marriage movement and other progressive goals emerged from a Marxist, New World Order effort to “bring America down.”

He similarly told David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that America’s true “enemies” are those pushing pro-choice and pro-gay-marriage views by trying “to divide everybody up.”

Of course, the irony seems to be lost on Carson that accusing his political opponents of being “anti-American” may itself come across to most people as divisive.

Mike Huckabee: 'There Will Be No Abortion' When I'm President

At Friday’s “Presidential Family Forum” hosted by the Iowa conservative group The Family Leader, Mike Huckabee doubled down on his pledge to “ignore the court” and “defy the court” as president by recriminalizing abortion and gay marriage through executive fiats.

“I’m convinced the next president should ignore the unconstitutional and illegal rulings of the courts, including that of same-sex marriage, because it is not the law of the land,” Huckabee said.

He also reiterated his plan to outlaw abortion with a sweeping presidential decree: “We [should] simply say, there will be no abortion because that unborn child is a person.”

Only then, Huckabee argued, would God be able to bless America.

Phyllis Schlafly Wants 'Railroad Cars Full Of Illegals Going South'

Excited about Donald Trump’s call for the mass deportation of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly told WorldNetDaily this weekend that she wants American railways to join the deportation effort, hoping to one day “see those railroad cars full of illegals going south.”

Blasting President Obama’s call for the U.S. to take in Syrian refugees as “ridiculous,” she warned that “Obama wants to change the character of our country” by bringing in people who “have no comprehension of our constitutional system, of limited government, of the people being in control.”

“Every time they say, ‘You can’t deport these people, in my mind’s eye, I see the picture of those railroad cars carrying the illegals out of our country when Eisenhower deported them. They say it was a failure. It wasn’t at all,” Schlafly told WND in an exclusive interview. “In my mind’s eye, I see those railroad cars full of illegals going south. That’s what they ought to do.”

“Obama wants to change the character of our country,” Schlafly charged, reacting to an expose highlighted at the top of The Drudge Report on Friday.

“These people come in and have no comprehension of our constitutional system, of limited government, of the people being in control, and I think it’s very tragic,” she continued.

“We had a wonderful country of freedom and prosperity, and that’s why everyone in the world wants to come here. But we can’t let everyone in the world in. And we need to be very persnickety about who we let in. We only want people who love America and want to be American.”

Schlafly said Obama’s plan to flood the U.S. with unscreened foreigners “certainly isn’t American,” and she never thought she’d see the day when a U.S. president failed to do his duty to protect the nation.

“I never did. Even the ones I didn’t vote for, I think, would have stood up for America,” Schlafly said. “Obama has told us that he doesn’t believe America should be thought of as better or exceptional. … Obama has a mystique about him, and he continues to go down what I think is the wrong path. We need a leader who’s going to stand up for America.”

Many politicians – Democrat and Republican – argue that the U.S. has a duty to accept “refugees.”

But Schlafly isn’t having any of that “ridiculous” nonsense.

“These ideas that they’re putting out, that we have some obligation to admit all these people, are just ridiculous,” she said. “We don’t have an obligation to admit anybody. A country that doesn’t have borders isn’t a country. We need to have borders.”

She added, “I think the grassroots are going to win out because there are more of them every day who are believing what Trump says and disbelieving what the elite are trying to tell us.”

Steve King: Syrian Refugees Like Poisonous Grapes

While chatting today with Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News, Rep. Steve King took issue with the claim that the mounting hostility to refugees is undermining American values. The Iowa Republican said that “the argument that ‘that’s not who we are’ is just one of the mantras that they put out, it’s not supported by logic or rationale.”

“Who we are? We should not be a suicidal nation,” King said. “My wife said this morning, ‘If you had 100 grapes and you knew that two of them were fatally poisonous, would you sit there and eat the grapes until one of them killed you? Or would you decide, I’m not going to take that bunch of grapes at all?’ That’s what we’re dealing with here with the Syrian refugees.”

King argued that the U.S. has already done its part to help refugees since “America has done more than any other country in the world has done for refugees and the soil right next door to Syria that are part of Iraq, is sanctified by the blood of our warriors, our patriots. They paid a greater price than any other country in the world and we have a right to protect our borders, and by the way, we have a right to protect our culture and our civilization. I am watching as Europe has committed, it’s almost conclusive now, that they are committing cultural suicide by pouring in millions of migrants who don’t share they’re values.”

He blamed the looming end of European civilization on abortion and contraception: “The mass migration is the end of their culture and civilization and they must know that but they deny it because they’ve denied the reality that if they don’t have their babies, if they abort their babies and decide by contraceptives and abortion not to have enough babies to reproduce themselves, they’re a dying civilization.”

As a result, King said, “they are replacing themselves with people who do not share their values.”

Louie Gohmert: The Terrorists Are Here, Thanks Obama

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, spoke with Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News today about the political squabble over resettling refugees, alleging that the president is allowing terrorists to enter the country as part of his plan to “fundamentally transform America.”

Bannon asked the congressman to respond to listener who had told Bannon that they were afraid that terrorists are using the refugee resettlement program to enter the U.S.

Gohmert didn’t have reassuring words: “They’re here, they’re here, there is no question, they’re here, that’s been confirmed over and over but it’s got to stop, it’s got to stop.”

He also thanked Bannon for defending “lonely” and “ostracized” Christians like himself who have been “standing against political correctness that is about to bring the greatest nation in history down if we don’t stop the insanity.”

Gohmert also pointed to the news that two Syrian families turned themselves in to immigration authorities at the southern border as evidence that President Obama has left the borders open in order to further his anti-American agenda.

“This president wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it,” Gohmert said. “Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border.”

He told Bannon that while President Bush eventually started to crack down on border traffic toward the end of his term, “as soon as President Obama took the oath, took over, those days were over and it was back to just being wide open almost. It’s just insane.”

A History Lesson For Ted Cruz: Irish & Italian Immigrants Were Once Seen As Violent Threats To America

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity last night, Ted Cruz defended his proposal to block Syrian Muslim refugees from entering the U.S. by insisting that Muslims are allowed “to lie to carry out jihad,” and therefore, we’ll never really know which Muslims don’t support violent extremism.

Cruz added that when Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., cited his Irish and Italian ancestors as reasons to oppose restrictive immigration policies, “I responded to Pat Leahy and I said, ‘You know what, on my mother’s side, my ancestors were Irish and Italian. The difference was, they weren’t coming here to blow up and murder innocent civilians.’”

Cruz may be interested to know that Nativists in the era of high Irish and Italian immigration considered such migrants to be violent threats.

The infamous Palmer Raids, sparked in part by a series of bombings carried out by Italian anarchists, were based on a fear that southern Italian immigrants presented an internal threat to the U.S. As author George De Stefano writes, many politicians at the time had concluded that “America was under attack by dangerous foreign radicals” and restrictive immigration laws were needed “to protect the nation from southern and eastern European immigrants, who purportedly would infect America with their dangerous radical ideas and engage in violent subversion.” Italian migrants were also seen as “unassimilable,” “dangerously radical” and “prone to violent criminality.” Decades before the Palmer Raids, Italian immigrants “were even accused of a conspiracy to inundate the United States with Italian fleas.”

Author Anthony V. Ricco detailed how the Palmer Raids specifically targeted Italians: “Armed agents stormed homes of Italian immigrants without warning, prisoners were detained without counsel, and innocent Italians were deported to Italy. In West Virginia, Colorado, and Louisiana, Italians were lynched by angry mobs of vigilantes.”

Irish newcomers were also treated as violent menaces, as Peter Behrens noted in the New York Times:

It’s embarrassing to listen to prosperous 21st-century Americans with Irish surnames lavish on Mexican or Central American immigrants the same slurs — “dark,” “dirty,” “violent,” “ignorant” — once slapped on our own, possibly shoeless, forebears. The Irish were seen as unclean, immoral and dangerously in thrall to a bizarre religion. They were said to be peculiarly prone to violence. As caricatured by illustrators like Thomas Nast in magazines like Harper’s Weekly, “Paddy Irishman,” low of brow and massive of jaw, was more ape than human, fists trailing on the ground when they weren’t cocked and ready for brawling.

An entire political movement, the American Party, also known as the Know Nothings, was founded in response to fears that Irish migrants were “a dangerous threat to the ‘nature’ of Protestant America, and thus to America itself” and should be prohibited from having certain rights since they “owed their allegiance, not to the burgeoning American government, but to the Pope, whose autocratic ruling style was antithetical to American democratic values.”

But we won’t hold our breath: Cruz didn’t seem to learn a thing from the last history lesson we gave him.

Jerome Corsi: Obama Altered His Muslim Wedding Ring!

WorldNetDaily super-reporter Jerome Corsi was super-excited a few years ago when he caught President Obama wearing an Islamic ring that proved that he was gay-married to his Pakistani college roommate. Upon closer inspection, however, it turns out that the ring in question only displayed a series of loops, rather than the Shahada, the Muslim statement of faith.

But Corsi has an explanation for that!

As he told “InfoWars” host Alex Jones in a segment today, fittingly titled “Obama Is A Muslim Radical Who Hates America,” the White House altered Obama’s ring following Corsi’s major scoop!

“I continue to say and have always said that Obama’s sympathies are Muslim,” Corsi said. “Obama has always worn this ring which has the Shahada on it. I still believe that’s the case. I know the White House tried to alter the ring. But Obama was wearing this wedding ring which is from Indonesia which looks to me [like it has] Muslim inscriptions on it since he was in college, long before he was married.”

Corsi went on to explain that the president “wants to expand the chaos in the Middle East for his own goals of reducing the power and influence of the United States and his leftist agenda of revolutionary transformation of the United States.”

WorldNetDaily Pundit: 'Bomb Mecca Off The Face Of The Earth'

WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky writes today that he has an ingenious but “politically incorrect suggestion” of how to defeat ISIS, namely that the U.S. “bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.”

According to Prelutsky, it’s time to realize that Muslims are “savages” and there’s no way we “can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live.”

“I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over,” he writes. “What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.”

One American president after another has described Islam as a religion of peace, and Barack Obama has gone so far as to claim that Muslims helped create America and also played a major role in space exploration, although both claims are as false as his vow that we could keep our doctors and our insurance plans if we liked them. Islam was never peaceful. From the very beginning, those who refused to accept Shariah law and to bow down to Mecca were killed.

Unlike Christianity which says that we should treat others as we would wish to be treated, to love our neighbors as ourselves and to be our brother’s keeper, Islam’s message is a threat: Convert or perish.

Whenever I see the so-called Muslim moderate Dr. Zuhdi Jasser show up on Fox, I am reminded of the well-dressed, well-spoken representatives of CAIR, the terrorist organization that attempts to pass itself off as a benevolent society, as if it were the Islamic equivalent of the Shriners.

Dr. Jasser keeps telling us that Islam is a wonderful religion that has been hijacked by a handful of thugs. Inasmuch as they have committed countless atrocities in the name of Allah in Spain, France, Egypt, England, Russia, Israel, Syria, Iraq, Java, Yemen, the Philippines, Lebanon, China, Austria, Italy, Argentina, India, Kuwait, Scotland, Japan and the U.S., that is some handful.

Those like Dr. Jasser who talk about their wonderful religion having been hijacked are lying through their teeth. Suggesting that there is nothing wrong with a religion whose Quran is a handbook for terrorism is reminiscent of those fools who keep insisting that communism is perfect, and that the only problem with it is that it’s never been done right, whether in China, the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, Mongolia or North Korea. Believe in Marx’s utopia, the idiots insist, not your own eyes.

My own politically incorrect suggestion is that we remove ISIS from the face of the earth, hopefully as a joint effort with every other nation it has threatened or attacked, and that we then bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.

It’s harsh, but they’ve been asking for it for over 1,400 years, and it’s time they got it. I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over. What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.

The notion that we in the West can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live by our example is foolish in the extreme. It’s not just our movies or our music or the fact that we live in a post-ninth century world that they hate. It’s our art, our culture, our technology, our Judeo-Christian values, our tolerance, our treatment of women, even, for all I know, our love of dogs.

The idea that we can civilize these savages is beyond ludicrous.

It would be easier to domesticate snakes and raise them for their milk.
