Jim Garlow: Obama 'Honors Radical Islam'

Jim Garlow accused President Obama yesterday of having a “devious” agenda to “honor those who have been enemies of freedom, enemies of truth and enemies of justice.”

In an interview with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, the California-based pastor and Religious Right leader went on to claim that the president “honors Islam and radical Islam” and promotes hostility to Israel. He then argued that “there is no such thing as a Palestinian people etymologically, that does not exist.”

Breaking News From NARTH: Ex-Gays On The March!

The ex-gay group NARTH, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, has launched a new group called the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity to promote a “new emphasis on educational outreach.” The announcement even features a “Breaking News” video, via Warren Throckmorton:

We imagine such “Breaking News” probably would have been more relevant when, say, NARTH official George Rekers was caught traveling with a male escort.

Throckmorton writes: “In any case, there appears to be nothing new under the sun or at NARTH. The name is new but the empty promises appear to be the same.”

WND: Archie Is 'Promoting Homosexuality To Children' Since Liberals 'Do Not Wish To Run Out Of New Flesh'

WorldNetDaily columnist Marisa Martin was not pleased to hear the news that the comic book character Archie will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend. In a column today, Martin fumes that the writer and publisher of the Archie series are probably gay themselves and are “promoting homosexuality to children.”

“Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear,” she writes. “Fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.”

Martin also reminisces about the good ole days of when she was once “blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other ‘faggot’ for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.”

The column even includes a Benghazi joke and warnings about the occult.

Progressive “Archie” publisher and co-CEO John Goldwater informed the AP of this himself: “We hope by showing how something so violent can happen to Archie, that we can – in some way – learn from him.”

It’s understandable that Archie’s publishers would want him bashed, because they obviously reached way beyond the public gullibility point. How many straight guys have a “gay” best friend, anyway? Perhaps an acquaintance or even a few friends, but Kevin and Archie discussing baseball and the comparative hotness of his babes?

Goldwater is a true believer, though. Aggressively pushing a type of “gay” hero worship, he claims to have accidentally stumbled across the story idea.



It’s clearly all about the sex, or an “openly gay” character wouldn’t be intrusively inserted into the storyline in Boy Scout country of Riverdale. Merits of homosexuality are never discussed in Goldwater’s interviews or the appropriateness of forcing it on children either. Why not have Archie die for Mother Teresa or a bus load of children? No political capital.



Whether Goldwater or Parent are “gay” themselves or just in some sort of mindless thralldom, I wouldn’t claim to know. Perhaps that’s where they sniff the money and power is blowing, as so many others in corporate America and the arts have before them.

This could be merely nauseating when created for actual persons they have a crush on or something. But fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.

Promoting homosexuality to children hasn’t been enough, though – Archie had to die for “great” causes. Why waste it? The other cause is gun control.

Writing for The Wire, Kevin O’Keefe explains the politics. The shooter “is after Kevin … a married senator-elect with big anti-gun plans after another shooter targeted gay victims in the nearby Southport Mall. But it’s unclear whether this shooter is a pro-gun nut or an anti-gay bigot – or both.”

Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear.



I’ll probably be accused of being a conspiracy theorist for this, but the timing of these social campaigns is extraordinarily coincidental. Goldwater and his cronies launch his big change-the-kids campaign about 2008, the nascent Obama years. Talking points are identical: change, diversity, gun control and promotion of “gay” and alternative lifestyles, specifically in the military – oh, and zombie invasions.

I’m sure it’s a total coincidence, though, and Goldwater and his co-workers have never even heard of Obama or the Democratic national platform, nor are they useful lackeys in any way or have they been promised an ambassador’s position in Libya.



But another memory comes to mind – my shock at first learning about homosexuality, thanks to junior high sex-ed. I was blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other “faggot” for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.

Thanks to public education, the tireless campaigning of Planned Parenthood and self-interested work of LGBT groups who do not wish to run out of new flesh, your children and grandchildren will be much more sexually sophisticated and curious. And Archie Comics promises to aid in this quest per their press releases.



Characters and plots over the last decade are all headed toward any dark, slippery, violent and occult story line they can find or commission. Sadly, the art with the horror/social engineering/drama series is actually much better, its sole redemptive quality.

WorldNetDaily: 'Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?'

The birther website WorldNetDaily is not exactly celebrating President Obama’s birthday this week, insisting that since his birth certificate is fake, he probably is lying about how old he is, too.

In his column yesterday, “Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?,” Jack Cashill writes that Obama is not telling the truth about not only his birth place, but also about the year he was born.

The WorldNetDaily reporter cites a 2007 speech Obama delivered in Selma, Alabama, about how his “existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today.” Obama was born in 1961, while the Selma to Montgomery march occurred in 1965. Of course, Obama’s remarks clearly referred to the progress of the Civil Rights Movement in general, but Cashill interprets his words literally to suggest that Obama inadvertently admitted that his birth certificate is phony.

In between the two convention speeches, the story of Obama’s birth was told more often than that of anyone’s since Jesus. No one, of course, told it as convincingly as Obama himself, especially in his game-saving Philadelphia speech, immodestly titled, “A More Perfect Union.”



“My very existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today,” Obama told the civil rights veterans gathered to mark the events of “Bloody Sunday” in 1965.

“Something happened back here in Selma, Alabama,” Obama continued. This something “sent a shout across the ocean,” which inspired the Barack Sr., “herding goats” back in Kenya, to “set his sights a little higher.”

This same something also “worried folks in the White House” to the point that the “the Kennedys decided we’re going to do an airlift.”

As the saga continued, Barack Sr. got a ticket on the airlift and met Obama’s mother, a descendant of slave owners. “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge,” preached Obama.

“So they got together, and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.”

He didn’t, and he wasn’t. The correct answer is b) comically unanchored to reality.



Although born in Kansas, Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, was not exactly Dorothy. She spent her formative years in the state of Washington, hanging with her homies in her school’s “anarchist alley.”

If there ever were a romance between Dunham and Barack Sr., it likely started at closing time and ended when Senior sobered up. In any case, Selma had nothing to do with Obama’s birth.

According to his birth certificate, Obama was born in 1961, four years before anyone outside of Alabama ever heard of the town.

By the time of the march, Barack Sr. had long since abandoned Ann and baby Barry for Harvard where he hooked up with another white American woman.

So preposterous was Obama’s Selma math – by his calculations, he could have been born no sooner than 1966 – that it made the birth certificate seem at least relatively believable. Maybe that was the intention all along.

Erik Rush: If House Impeaches Obama, 'Senate Would Be Compelled To Remove Him'

WorldNetDaily pundit Erik Rush is calling on House Republicans to vote to impeach President Obama, writing that impeachment hearings will expose the president’s purported ties to al-Qaeda and ISIS and “create a situation in which even a Democrat-controlled Senate would be compelled to remove him.”

Rush, who previously supported an anti-Obama military coup and called for the president’s execution, writes today that Obama must be removed from office to ensure “that such an obscenity never again manifests in this nation.”

Think about it. Obama has to know that revelations made during impeachment proceedings (should they include such things as his identity fraud, releasing five of the most deadly terrorists alive in exchange for an Army deserter and likely traitor, catalyzing the Arab Spring, which has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands, orchestrating the fall of the Gadhafi government in Libya, as well as the funding and training of al-Qaida and ISIS, to name just a few) could create a situation in which even a Democrat-controlled Senate would be compelled to remove him.



House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s meltdown (as well as a marked breach of decorum) on the House floor last week also may have been quite telling. Given Pelosi’s usual behavior, her explosion and insulting tirade against Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., was more in keeping with someone under great stress than a mere loss of temper or momentary lapse in judgment. In case the reader is unaware, it was Pelosi who put her name to the documents certifying one Barack Hussein Obama as eligible for the Democratic Party nomination to run for president in 2008. Perhaps she perceives that if Obama is ever held to account for some of his more egregious acts, she could go down with him.

Just this week, 79 percent of respondents to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll claimed that they were dissatisfied with President Obama. The same poll showed Americans expressing a distinct disgust with the way the country is being run in general. I believe that we still have a long way to go before Americans truly understand how things came to this point, but it’s a beginning.

The American people don’t necessarily have to understand the motivations of the Obama cabal at this juncture. Perceiving the danger we are in and the nature of the threat they present could very well be enough to facilitate its neutralization. Once this occurs, we can set about ensuring that such an obscenity never again manifests in this nation.

Chris McDaniel Says Mitch McConnell Sold His Soul For Power, Future Of America At Stake

On yesterday’s edition of “Sandy Rios In The Morning,” Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel accused Sens. Mitch McConnell and Thad Cochran of selling their soul for power. McDaniel, who recently demanded the state party declare him the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate even though he lost a runoff election to Cochran, agreed with Rios that people may soon stop voting and said the future of the country is at stake in his challenge to the Mississippi election results.

“They need to know that their elections can be trusted, otherwise people will stop voting,” Rios said. “We will completely break down if we can’t sort this out.”

McDaniel agreed: “That’s exactly right. There has to be repercussions.”

McDaniel then responded to an article about how Tea Party groups are less than thrilled with McConnell’s campaign, with one activist citing his role in supporting Cochran’s re-election.

“What we’re seeing are people like McConnell and people like Cochran and others that will sell their very souls for a little extra power or a little extra money,” McDaniel said. “That’s something we cannot allow to happen. If conservatives let this go, we’re going to lose this country.”

Rick Wiles: 'Ebola Could Solve America's Problems With Atheism And Homosexuality'

Right before chatting with a Republican congressman on his on “Trunews” program yesterday, End Times radio host Rick Wiles said that an outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. might actually be a good thing if it ends up giving an “attitude adjustment” to all the gays and atheists, along with people who use pornography or have had an abortion, who will die if they aren’t “protected by God.”

“Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague. It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming,” he said. “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

“If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”

Previously, Wiles linked President Obama to the Ebola outbreak.

Frank Wolf Thinks Terrorists Are Crossing The Border Whistling Dixie Thanks To Obama

Rick Wiles may be a bizarre End Times radio host who promotes utterly insane conspiracy theories, but that hasn’t stopped Republican politicians from appearing on his show. Rep. Frank Wolf, a Virginia Republican, appeared on Wiles’ show, “Trunews,” yesterday, where he warned that terrorists are crossing America’s southern border thanks to President Obama’s supposed refusal to administer immigration law.

Wolf asked: “If you were a terrorist, why would you come through Dulles airport or Kennedy airport and go through TSA, why wouldn’t you just go to Mexico City and come across the border?”

“You could just skip over the border whistling Dixie,” Wiles said.

The congressman agreed: “You could.”

“The border is open,” Wolf continued, since Obama is “not enforcing the law.”
