Jonathan Cahn: Lesbian Kiss On TV Was 'A Fever Dream From Hell'

Televangelist Jim Bakker is a big fan of the work of End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn, even though last time Bakker became enthusiastic about a Cahn doomsday prophecy, he ended up making a long list of predictions that didn’t come true.

When the two chatted on Bakker’s show last week, they declared that President Obama’s support for LGBT rights and the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide proves that America has learned nothing from the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and, as a result, God will open up the country to further judgment.

“This was the warning,” Bakker said of 9/11.

Cahn was particularly upset about a recent scene on the show “Once Upon a Time” in which two female characters kissed: “They had Little Red Riding Hood and Dorothy, this is on the air, making out, on television, making out, not just kissing. Red Riding Hood and Dorothy. Would you ever imagine? That’s like a fever dream from hell.”

Later, Bakker said that Ronald Reagan himself predicted when he was running for president in 1979 that America could soon “become as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Paranoia-Rama: Trump's Latest Absurdity, Martial Law Fears & About Those Death Panels…

Another day, another Donald Trump conspiracy theory. We can’t wait to hear what new ones he comes up with before the election; that is, if President Obama doesn’t declare martial law to stop Trump before then.

Rachel Maddow Skewers Donald Trump And One Of His Many Conspiracy Theorist Pals

Last night, Rachel Maddow talked about how Donald Trump has regularly promoted Wayne Allyn Root, the far-right conspiracy theorist, self-help guru and Trump wannabe.

The GOP presidential candidate has never shied away from embracing extremists, so it was no surprise when he picked Root to introduce him at a Las Vegas rally last year.

Trump, as Maddow noted, was particularly enthralled by Root’s bizarre claim that Obama never attended Columbia University and simultaneously was radicalized to become an anti-American “Manchurian candidate” by his left-wing professors while attending Columbia University.

Trump even called on hackers to expose Obama’s “college records”:

One of Root’s most ridiculous conspiracy theories, one touted by Trump and mocked by President Obama in a recent speech, was that the president was purposefully letting people infected with Ebola flood into the U.S. in 2014 as part of his dream of “taking down this country.”

“We’ve got to remove him from office and fast,” Root said, “before he kills all of us”:

“In addition to the ‘Power of Relentless,’ in addition to claiming President Obama didn’t really go to Columbia, he also said during the Ebola crisis that if President Obama wasn’t somehow forcibly removed from office, we would all die from Ebola,” Maddow said. “All of us.”

Much like Root, she continued, Trump has his own record of making “ludicrous” and “preposterous” statements, so many that it is difficult to hold him to account “just because of the sheer number of things he has said that fit that bill.”

“When you’re that ridiculous that frequently, do people stop being shocked? Do we get inured? Does nothing seem too shocking? Does nothing seem too idiotic or dangerous or blatantly racist anymore?” she asked.

The best way to ridicule Trump’s beliefs, she concluded, is restating his own words and “letting people laugh at them.”

North Carolina Lt. Governor: LGBT Rights Proof We've Turned Our Back On God

North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is apparently not above appearing on “Trunews,” the radical anti-LGBT radio program hosted by far-right conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles, where he insisted Wednesday that his state’s new anti-LGBT law is in no way discriminatory.

In fact, the GOP official said, “women and children” were the ones “being discriminated against” under LGBT rights ordinances like the one passed by the city of Charlotte, which was voided by the new state law.

He said that such measures were approved because “we have a lack of moral compass in our country right now, we’ve taken our eyes off God in America, we have turned our back on God, we have forgotten God in a lot of ways, so the moral compass is broken here.”

Forest went on to say that anti-LGBT laws like North Carolina’s only “discriminate against behavior, not against people,” comparing them to traffic laws: “If I want to go out and drive 95 miles an hour down the interstate in North Carolina because I feel like doing that, I don’t have the right to do that. It doesn’t mean the law is discriminating against me, it’s discriminating against my behavior of wanting to drive 95.”

Naturally, Forest went on to blame the controversy over the law on the media.

Paul Ryan Endorses Donald Trump Because Why Not?

Shortly after it became clear that Donald Trump would be the GOP presidential nominee, House Speaker Paul Ryan said to much fanfare that he was not prepared to endorse Trump because the candidate had shown an unwillingness to unify the Republican Party.

Ryan, who has criticized Trump for his brief refusal to disavow the support of white nationalist David Duke and his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the country, emphasized that Trump must bring Republicans together and outline his beliefs about limited government if he wants his endorsement.

Trump went on to criticize Ryan and other Republicans, including Ryan’s 2012 running mate, Mitt Romney, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. When Trump lashed out at Republican New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez while campaigning in her state last week, Ryan defended her. Trump has also made a point to assure voters that he won’t act “presidential” and that he hasn’t changed any of the extremist views that he espoused during the primary race.

Despite the fact that Trump has not done absolutely anything that Ryan asked of him, Ryan endorsed him anyway today in an op-ed for his hometown paper:

Now that he’s officially gotten behind Trump’s campaign, the mythical image of Ryan as a principled conservative visionary can finally be put to rest.

Rick Wiles: America Will Soon Be 'Obliterated'

Yesterday on his “Trunews” program, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles discussed topics ranging from LGBT pride month to a Christian youth pastor dressing up like the Times Square Naked Cowboy, concluding that America must be on the verge of “being obliterated.”

“We are watching a nation lose its mind and go insane,” he said. “Every strata of society has gone insane. That’s because they’ve rejected God.”

These “lunatics” running society, Wiles added, are going to marginalize, “round up” and “exterminate” conservative Christians.

On His First Day In Office, President Trump Will Tell Allies That He Won't Defend Them If They Don't Pay Up

After predicting that Germany and other European countries will collapse due to the refugee crisis, Donald Trump told Michael Savage yesterday that on his very first day as president, he will begin calling the leaders of allied nations to inform them that the U.S. will no longer honor commitments to defend them in case of a military conflict.

Trump said that these allied countries will “have to pay” much more for protection, adding, “What, are we supposed to get into World War III over a country that doesn’t respect us enough to pay what they’re supposed to be paying?”

Trump also said that as president he will immediately act to undo President Obama’s executive actions on immigration reform and build the Keystone XL pipeline, with a hefty new tax on the corporations that benefit from it.

Previously, Trump said he would prefer that countries acquired nuclear weapons rather than continue military alliances with the U.S. that he thinks are too expensive.

Trump: 'Germany's Going Down. They're All Going Down.'

Yesterday, Donald Trump chatted with far-right conspiracy theorist Michael Savage, who asked the presumptive GOP presidential nominee about the Dalai Lama’s recent comments that European countries have accepted “too many” refugees.

Trump, who has frequently criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her stance on refugees and because she, in his view, robbed him of the 2015 TIME Person of the Year title, told Savage that refugees will destroy the continent: “I’ll tell you, you’re going to destroy Europe. Germany’s going down. They’re all going down. It’s unbelievable; unbelievable what’s happening in Europe.”

Not only has Trump consistently lied about the refugee crisis, but he has also threatened to deport refugees legally resettled in the U.S.

Jim Bakker: Anti-Trump Forces May Impose Martial Law Or Cancel The Election

When televangelist Jim Bakker and far-right writer Michael Snyder discussed the upcoming presidential election last week, both were rather excited about the prospect of Donald Trump winning in November.

That is, if the election ever takes place.

Both Bakker and Snyder feared that powerful forces may try to cancel the election, and Bakker warned that we “may not even get to the election” because “there’s going to be a martial law declared.” “Some have actually prophesied this,” Bakker added.

Bakker reminisced about the time he interviewed Ronald Reagan in 1979, which he called “the day Ronald Reagan became prophet.” Unfortunately, Bakker said he doesn’t have any footage of this momentous meeting with Reagan, but he has previously said that Reagan warned during the interview about America turning into Sodom and Gomorrah.

Snyder, meanwhile, urged viewers to pray for Trump’s safety because “the elite are going to move heaven and earth to do whatever is necessary to keep Donald Trump out of the White House,” adding that such elites “are not above launching false flag attacks” or creating “some type of event so that they can cancel or suspend the election.”

This prompted Bakker to claim that he has personally been the victim of false flag attacks “by some people” who “were trying to kill me.”

Trent Franks: Every Study Shows Same-Sex Couples Don't Make Good Parents

Last week, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., stopped by the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” radio program to discuss the recent fight in the House of Representatives over LGBT nondiscrimination rules for federal contractors.

Franks linked the issue to the debate over marriage equality, claiming that “all of the research shows” that children of opposite-sex parents perform better “on every measureable metric” than those raised by same-sex couples.

“There is no doubt whatsoever that whether it’s caused by divorce or lack of marriage or same-sex marriage, whatever it is, whenever a child is not in a mother-father family, traditional family, they have some odds stacked against them in many areas.”

This, of course, is not true.

The congressman then falsely claimed that LGBT rights advocates are trying to force pastors to officiate same-sex couples’ weddings and prohibit speech critical of marriage equality, adding that “the so-called tolerant left are the most intolerant people that I know of.”

Franks, who once called President Obama an “enemy of humanity” and criticized gay marriage as a threat to the survival of society, lectured LGBT rights supporters to be more “kind and decent and respectful.”

Franks also told Perkins that liberals use “vitriolic” and “emotional” rhetoric because they know their ideas “would not survive the test of reality.”

“They can’t have a reasoned discussion because most of their positions simply collapse under the weight of reason,” he said.
