Rick Wiles: On Veterans Day, Apologize To Vets For Marriage Equality

On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” host Rick Wiles said he intended to mark Veterans Day by apologizing to veterans for the legalization of same-sex marriage, which he said has dishonored those who died in battle.

It’s an appropriate time, Veterans Day. My heart is so broken over the immorality of this nation and the hedonistic mindset of so many people in this country. I want to go to Arlington Cemetery and go to grave to gravesite and say to those fallen soldiers, I’m sorry, we threw it away. We threw it away, you died for us, we threw it away. I want to go to those gravesites and apologize to those soldiers that we’re such a bunch of lazy, hedonistic, self-serving people in this country today that we threw away what they fought and died for. It sickens me, it sickens me that men bled on battlefields, their life poured out of them, so we would be free, so we would have a decent nation. Anybody going to tell me that the men who died in World War II were fighting for same-sex marriage? Are you really going to tell me that’s why they risked their lives and died?

The End Times broadcaster also alleged that God told him that Nazism and anti-Christian persecution are coming to America, informing him “that there would be a day that there would be a Nazi power rising up in the United States of America to snuff out the Gospel, to take over the church of Jesus Christ.

I’m saying it is here now, in 2014, this is a Nazi spirit that’s in the United States of America and thousands of churches are intimidated by it, frightened by it and being silent as this monster rises up,” he said.

Religious Right Group: Net Neutrality Threatens Free Speech

National Religious Broadcasters, the televangelist group that pledges to “be for the First Amendment what the NRA is for the Second Amendment,” today blasted President Obama’s support for net neutrality, saying that the president’s position “sends a particularly poor signal to communist China.”

In a statement, NRB calls net neutrality a “power grab of the internet” and says that the policy somehow threatens “free speech” and distracts from the Federal Communications Commission’s mission of “promoting the values of free speech, free exercise of religion, and a free press for citizen user-generated content that is transmitted over the Internet.”

Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB, spoke out today against the President’s call for increased government control over the Internet.

“Free speech and free enterprise are the bedrock of the Internet,” stated Dr. Johnson. “This federal power grab being advocated by President Obama is, unfortunately, right in line with others by this Administration. It sends a particularly poor signal to communist China, where he is visiting this week.”

“Let me say that the President does have a valid concern that providers not block legal online content that they do not prefer or like,” continued Dr. Johnson. “Indeed, I would challenge him to consider that ‘edge providers’ like Facebook also should not engage in viewpoint censorship.”

“However, he is very wrong to insist that the FCC unilaterally assume heavy-handed Title II authority over the Internet,” asserted Dr. Johnson. “If the FCC feels it needs such power, the Executive Branch should ask Congress for it, and see what the people’s representatives permit. That is how our Republic works.”

In its public filing last summer with the FCC on this net neutrality proceeding, NRB stated:

We believe that the Commission has sufficient, though narrow, authority under section 706, as well as ancillary jurisdiction under Title I of the Communications Act of 1934, to provide an adequate basis for limited, restrained jurisdiction; but asserting jurisdiction under Title II with its heavy hand of telecommunications regulations is ill-advised….Moreover, we believe that this narrow range of FCC authority should be fixed on two objectives: (1) fostering competitive, free enterprise innovation regarding Internet services, applications, and devices, and (2) promoting the values of free speech, free exercise of religion, and a free press for citizen user-generated content that is transmitted over the Internet.

Ben Carson Will Crack Down On Non-Citizens Committing Voter Fraud By Revoking Their Citizenship

As he prepares his bid for president, WorldNetDaily columnist Ben Carson unveiled today his “common-sense prescriptions” and “bipartisan solutions” for U.S. immigration policy, calling for the creation of a guest-worker program and insisting that undocumented immigrants in the country leave before they can attain legal status.

The Republican activist bravely offered the very new idea that he wants to “have secure borders,” calling on the government to adopt policies “learned from security personnel in prisons and other secured facilities” while lamenting that children of undocumented immigrants can enroll in public schools, a constitutional right.

Carson also demanded that the government begin deporting undocumented immigrants for the extremely rare incidents of voter fraud… and revoking the citizenship that they do not have: “Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked.”

It is time for Congress to act and to do so in a bipartisan fashion that engenders the confidence of the American people. There are many common-sense prescriptions within reach of our government. It is time to seize them.

To begin to solve this problem, we must first have some understanding of why it exists. Despite all of its problems, America is still the place of dreams. As such, it is small wonder that so many from other nations would like to live here.

Right now, we have very porous borders and unenthusiastic and inconsistent enforcement of immigration laws. Further incentives for illegal immigration are easy enrollment in public schools, easy employment for those willing to take jobs others don’t want, easy access to health care and easy acquisition of public support through welfare programs. Yet this population cannot participate in the formal workforce, which means they cannot contribute fully to their local economies.



A national guest-worker program makes sense and seems to work well in Canada. Non-citizens would have to apply for a guest-worker permit and have a guaranteed job awaiting them. Taxes would be paid at a rate commensurate with other U.S. workers, and special visas would allow for easy entry and egress across borders. Guest-worker status would be granted to individuals and not to groups.

People already here illegally could apply for guest-worker status from outside of the country. This means they would have to leave first. They should in no way be rewarded for having broken our laws, but if they are wise, they will arrange with their employer before they leave to immediately offer them a legal job as soon as their application is received. When they return, they still would not be U.S. citizens, but they would be legal, and they would be paying taxes. Only jobs that are vacant as a result of a lack of interest by American citizens should be eligible for the guest-worker program.



All of this is irrelevant unless we have secure borders. There is much that can be learned from security personnel in prisons and other secured facilities, and there is a great deal of smart technology that can be employed to achieve secure borders. It is a matter of will rather than ability.

As long as we reward people who break laws, they will continue to break laws. We do need a continual flow of immigrants, but choosers need not be beggars. We make decisions based on our needs. People who refuse to comply with the rules must forfeit chances of legalization in the future. Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked. The point is this: We must create a system that disincentivizes illegal immigration and upholds the rule of law while providing us with a steady stream of immigrants from other nations who will strengthen our society. Let’s solve the problem and stop playing political football.

Michael Savage: GOP Should Shut Down The Government Over Immigration Reform

On Friday, conservative talk show host Michael Savage said Republicans should once again shut down the government to protest President Obama’s policies, this time on immigration reform.

Savage hoped that conservatives in Congress will launch a fight over government funding if Obama issues an executive action relieving some undocumented immigrants from deportation, calling Obama “a psycho” who “wants to be a dictator.”

I frankly think we need a government shutdown. If that’s what it takes, shut it down. just shut it down, just shut it down. If Obama wants to be a dictator, damn it, cut off his funding, shut it down. What good is a government of one man? What do you mean a government? If the guy’s a rogue president, a psycho, just shut it down. Go for a close down, what are you afraid of? What the illegals won’t like you? They’re not going to like you anyway. What do you mean don’t shut it down? Cut off the funding for Obama’s amnesty, that’s the talk right now inside Congress.

“We’re already in a civil war,” Savage said. “President Obama declared war on America the day he was elected,” arguing that Obama has been engaged in a war “against the military, against the police, against the education department, against the economy, everything he’s done has been a civil war.”

“Obama has been conducting a civil war from the day he started,” he said.

Solomon: Obama Is 'A Homosexual Muslim Married To A Man'

In an interview last month, after explaining why politicians should fear getting shot, Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt and talk show host Stan Solomon speculated that liberals in the U.S. are teaming up with Muslim radicals in order to destroy America.

Pratt lamented that the “Democrat [sic] party” believes that “everything is to be reduced to race or some sort of sexual perversion,” while Solomon was flummoxed as to why “they can’t help themselves but reach out and hug the Muslims and the Muslims, if they’d ever get into the position, would kill half the Democrats.”

The two then talked about how they have been preparing for the prospect of Sharia law governing America and that unlike defenseless liberals, they will be ready to fight back. Pratt reasoned that “the liberals are so consumed with hatred of our country that when they see somebody like a Muslim who hates America as well, they can’t get it through their head what you just pointed out, that they’re next. If they get those folks in power, if they pull off what they’re trying to do, they’re toast. You and I can probably protect ourselves because we’ve been preparing for that.” 

Solomon then suggested that President Obama is Muslim who is married to a man: “A homosexual Muslim married to man, I can’t imagine how Barack Obama would do if he ever ventured into a Muslim country and didn’t have 800,000 armed people around him.” (We aren’t sure if Solomon is referring to the far-right conspiracy theory that Obama is secretly married to his male Pakistani college roommate or the one that Michelle Obama is a transgender woman.) 

The gun lobbyist replied that Obama was steeped in Islam but most likely “disparages every religion, his religion is Barack Obama, but he is a man that does not like this country.”

Gun Activists: 'Dispatch' Politicians With 'Metal Jackets'

Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America has repeatedly extolled the virtues of politicians having a “healthy fear” of being shot because such fears are a way to make sure that they “behave” and support gun rights.

Marcus Bachmann Defends Ex-Gay Therapy At Controversial Clinic

Retiring Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus is defending the dangerous, pseudo-scientific, practice of sexual orientation conversion therapy that he conducts at his clinic Counseling Care, previously known as Bachmann & Associates.

Speaking with Jan Markell and Jill Martin Rische on “Understanding the Times” this weekend, Bachmann said that he was angry that his clinic faced criticism after several reports surfaced about ex-gay therapy taking place there.

Bachmann insisted that “we are people of ethics” who were only attacked for trying to “speak truth,” adding that “people will choose, they will ultimately choose what they are going to do with their life.”

He also said his clinic faced criticism simply for “creating a safe place” for LGBT people:

Once the far-left understood that we were actually creating a safe place, a place where people who said I have this issue with same-sex attraction, this desire. I’m a believer, I’m a person of faith and it’s conflicting with my values systems. Anyone who would walk alongside and then encourage that person’s values systems and their beliefs and bring that in alignment, that is like blasphemous to the other side. How dare you even consider being involved in someone who has decided or is desiring that to influence in any way shape or form another side in the book on this one?

WND Columnist: 'Congress Must At Once Announce An Investigation' Into Obama's Birth Certificate

Gushing over Republican victories in last week’s election, WorldNetDaily columnist Lord Christopher Monckton hopes that the GOP will immediately go after President Obama’s “bogus ‘birth certificate’ on the crime scene that is the White House website.’”

Monckton, clinging to long-discredited birther conspiracy theories, writes today that “Congress must at once announce an investigation into the forgery” and “take on Mr. Obama and the army of vicious leftists with whom he surrounds.”

Last week, Monckton wondered whether Republicans in Congress have “the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.”

Thanks almost entirely to the backbone inserted into the GOP by the tea-party movement, the Republicans have now captured the Senate as well as increasing their majority in the House. Let them now make the very best use of their victory by making proper preparations to win the third branch of government from the usurper who now clings on in office by his fingernails.



The GOP should aim for nothing less than a balanced budget. That will mean welfare reductions and tax hikes for all, as well as drastic reductions in federal spending. But if America does not recover her economic might, then her descent from superpower to Third World will be swift, painful and humiliating.

Finally, the world’s most flagrant example of in-your-face dishonesty and corruption in government – the bogus “birth certificate” on the crime scene that is the White House website – must be firmly dealt with.

I know not whether Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii. But it is clear beyond reasonable doubt that the document on the White House website is not a genuine Hawaiian birth certificate. The corruption in Hawaii that created the forgery, and in Washington, D.C., that allows the forgery to continue in circulation, must be ended.

Congress must at once announce an investigation into the forgery. For although it is right to argue that if a criminal offense has been committed the investigating authorities should act, it has become clear that they simply do not have the courage to do their duty and take on Mr. Obama and the army of vicious leftists with whom he surrounds himself.

This vital congressional investigation cannot be put off any longer. Your Constitution and your systems of government and law are being openly and mendaciously flouted by a nasty faction that hates everything that America and the free West stand for. Fight back, or go down.
