Author Wants Southern States To Secede Over Gay Rights, Name New Country 'Reagan'

Conservative columnist and former Reagan administration aide Douglas MacKinnon is out with a new book calling for Southern states to secede…again.

While speaking yesterday with Janet Mefferd about his book, “The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values Country…Now,” MacKinnon called for a movement of states, starting with South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, to establish a new country that will adhere to the Religious Right’s political agenda.

Texas, MacKinnon explained, was not included in his secessionist blueprint because “there have been a number of incursions into Texas and other places from some of the folks in Mexico.”

He added that the South had “seceded legally” and “peacefully” during the Civil War, but greedy Northerners like President Lincoln “waged an illegal war that was in fact not declared against the South after the South basically did what we’re talking about in this book now in terms of peacefully, legally and constitutionally leaving the union.”

After lamenting that “for whatever reason the leaders that we’re picking are deciding not to stand firmly for traditional values,” MacKinnon repeated his view that a new country should be formed, and even proposed an “interim name” for the ultraconservative breakaway nation: “Reagan.”

MacKinnon specifically cited advances in gay rights as a reason for Southern states to leave the U.S. and create a new country.

MacKinnon strongly defended the South for its role in what he called “The War Between The States,” saying that Religious Right activists should endorse the secessionist movement as a way to “protect our faith.”

Pat Robertson: Gay Rights Advocates Are 'Terrorists, Radicals And Extremists'

In a diatribe today about the legal dispute in Houston involving a group of pastors and right-wing activists who sued the city in an effort to repeal its nondiscrimination ordinance, Pat Robertson said that gay rights advocates are hell-bent on forcing Christians to officiate same-sex marriages and are essentially acting like terrorists.

It’s one thing to want to persuade somebody to believe like you do, that’s what Christianity is about, to bring the Gospel message and say this is good news and we’d like you to accept it. It’s something else to take the arm of the government to force somebody to do something that is against, contrary to their religion, and that’s what these homosexuals are trying to do. They are trying to force people who are Christians to marry them or else face jail, to make cakes honoring them or else go to jail and give their sermons over and divulge their innermost thoughts or go to jail, that’s the kind of thing we’re dealing with.

These people are terrorists, they’re radicals and they’re extremists. No Christian in his right mind would ever try to enforce somebody against their belief or else suffer jail. They did that during the Inquisition, it was horrible, it was a black mark on our history, but it isn’t being done now. There’s no Christian group I know of anywhere in the world that would force somebody to do something contrary to their deep-held religious beliefs or else face criminal penalties, but that’s what the homosexuals are trying to do here in America and I think it’s time pastors stand up and fight this monstrous thing.

If the gays want to go out and do their gay sex, that’s one thing, but if they want you to force you to accept it and solemnify it by marriage then that’s a different matter and it’s an infringement on people’s religious belief. What’s being done in Houston is a gay—the woman they elected is a homosexual, she’s a lesbian, and she’s trying to force pastors to conform to her beliefs. It’s wrong.

GOP 'Cranking' Enthusiast Tells Michiganders To Flee 'Homosexual Agenda'

A Michigan Republican running for an open seat in the state house, who briefly dropped out of the race after it was revealed that he had a record of criminal convictions for breaking into cars and masturbating to the sound of the engines, or “cranking,” told residents this month to flee the state if the legislature approves an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination bill.

PrideSource reports that Jordan Haskins took to Facebook to blast an attempt to add protections for sexual orientation and gender identity to Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, urging his supporters to leave the state in protest.

"If the state wants to trample religious freedom, we go somewhere else where our values are welcome," the candidate wrote on his Facebook page Oct. 8. "Michigan loses tax money, economic performance, jobs, etc. if they choose to be entrenched with the homosexual agenda, it's time for conservative christians (sic) to vote with their feet and their dollars."

In another post, Haskins boasted of his fight against the “homosexual movement.”

I helped lead the effort to fend off the homosexual movement here in Saginaw along with some inner city pastors. These are all things that God has allowed me to add to my resume/ repotiore of my life experiences.



God has totally turned me around from the stubborn teenage/ young person that I used to be. I can still be hardheaded at times, but that is because I don't want to see people in Saginaw hurting and suffering anymore. I still believe that we can be a part of the Michigan comeback and I believe that as long as there are those that love God here, we can win souls and see God move in this city and state.

Activist Hopes The Spirit Of Ronald Reagan Will Ban Abortion

Mark Olson, who claims to be “a former LGBT activist” turned conservative, is calling on abortion rights opponents to embrace his plan to recriminalize abortion by launching a convention of states to amend the U.S. Constitution and overturn Roe v. Wade.

To increase the appeal of his idea, Olson is dubbing it the “Reagan Plan.” Although as governor of California, Ronald Reagan signed a bill legalizing abortion in certain cases, he ultimately endorsed a constitutional amendment to ban abortion.

Olson offers a video detailing his plan on his website, while warning that anti-choice groups are wary of his plan only “because if abortion ended they would lose their power within the Republican Party.”

The Reagan Plan will achieve the necessary number of pro-life state legislative majorities in order to amend the U.S. Constitution to abolish abortion. President Reagan got to within two states of achieving this, yet pro-life never mobilized behind Reagan's efforts.

Available at www.ReaganPlan.com is a thirty-page paper that addresses conservative critics of an Article V Convention. "Apparently these critics have not actually read the words of the founding fathers. If it was good enough for Ronald Reagan, it is good enough for me," says Olson.

Olson identifies the biggest challenge to moving forward with Reagan's vision is getting Pro-Life on board. Olson admits, "I've had several pro-life leaders communicate to me that the Reagan Plan would work, but that they will not fund it because if abortion ended they would lose their power within the Republican Party. Due to electoral advantages from 2010 redistricting, our window to act on this is quickly closing."

Steve Deace: Gay 'Rainbow Jihad' Put Jesus In Jail!

Conservative talk show host Steve Deace is out with a column today titled “The Rainbow Jihad,” about how gay rights advocates are destroying freedom and everything good.

Naturally, Deace illustrated his column with a photo that appears to be a mug shot of Jesus Christ.

The image seems to suggest that gay marriage opponents will be treated like child predators: “Pursuant to S.S.M. 666.66, [prisoner] is a convicted Same Sex Marriage Opponent and lives at this location.” 

Deace cites the dubious Religious Right “persecution” cases of Phillip Monkthe Houston pastors and New York and Idaho businesses to make the case that America is now embracing the totalitarian ideology of “cultural Marxists.”

The generations that pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honors on behalf of American Exceptionalism viewed the rainbow as the symbol of God’s mercy after the judgment that was Noah’s flood.

Nowadays the rainbow is symbolic of judgment again. Except this time no mercy is forthcoming from the cultural Marxists who have hijacked it. They seek to ruthlessly banish from public life any who still believe as those who founded America once did.

See, everything we social conservatives warned you years ago would happen if we went down the Rainbow Road is now here.



The cultural Marxists promised us no one would lose their God-given rights by granting people the made-up right to be godless, but now their answer is “if it does happen you deserve it you bigot.”

Jim Bakker: Enjoy Ice Cream Sandwiches While Everyone Else Is Dead

Much like his fellow doomsday prophet Glenn Beck, televangelist Jim Bakker regularly dedicates segments of his show to selling survivalist food supplies while warning of the country’s imminent peril. Last week, Bakker discussed the Ebola outbreak and other possible calamities, including a collapse of the electrical grid.

Bakker said that while “90-some percent of all Americans will be dead in less than a year” if such a breakdown occurs, you and your family will be secure if you take advantage of his special “time of trouble” offer to purchase packages containing between 91 and 273 desserts, including ice cream sandwiches, chocolates and pudding.

“Order your food, do it while there’s yet time,” he said in his sendoff message.

Rick Wiles: Obama Wants To Kill Millions Of Christians, Spread Ebola And Aid ISIS

Robert P. George, a founder of the National Organization for Marriage and vice-chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, decided that it would be a good idea to appear on Rick Wiles’ “Trunews” yesterday. George may or may not have known that Wiles is an absolutely insane conspiracy theorist, but he might have gotten a hint when, during the interview, Wiles told him that the U.S. and its allies have been secretly training ISIS.

While George said he couldn’t confirm or respond to Wiles’ claims, the End Times broadcaster went on to claim that coalition airstrikes are “just dropping bombs” and deliberately “missing the strongholds” of ISIS.

Before the interview with George, Wiles shared his theory that “‘Ebola Barry’ is deliberately spreading Ebola inside America in a way that would have made Typhoid Mary blush with embarrassment over his brazen ways,” warning that “‘Ebola Barry’ is also ‘Jihad Obama,’ he is now militarizing the response to Ebola and I assure you he has plans for you and me.”

He went on to argue that the government wants to “release a highly contagious virus” that will “contaminate paper money and spread the plague” in order to “destroy the U.S. Dollar” and replace it with the “Amero.”

But Wiles wasn’t done just yet.

He ended the program by predicting that President Obama will stay on as president after his second term comes to an end and will murder millions of Christians just like Pol Pot, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong: “This is the warning for America, you have a dictator, you have a dictator in the White House who is waiting for the opportunity to bring his violence to this country.”

“If Mr. Obama gets his way, if he really is able to do what is in his heart, he will bring unspeakable violence and bloodshed to the soil of America, he will bring civil war, he will bring rioting, his assignment is to destroy the country, he is the destroyer,” Wiles said. “The damage he’s going to do in the next two years will be unbelievable and we have no idea whether he will leave after 2016 or whether there will be anything left for somebody else to govern.”

Trent Franks: 'Secular Left' Will Bring Down America

Last month, Rep. Trent Franks appeared on a conference call with Virginia pastor and failed lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson to discuss dangers to America’s survival, where they both agreed that the separation of church and state is bringing the country down.

Jackson asked the Arizona congressman about the “profound threat to Christianity in general and to our Christian foundations in this country,” which he said comes from President Obama and the “drumbeat of atheism that attacks everything, ‘get the cross down,’ ‘don’t show a Bible,’ ‘don’t wear a cross,’ ‘don’t say God bless you.’ It just seems like every day we’re hearing some new effort to try to shut Christians up and shut us down.”

“The litany that you listed there is so right, dead-on,” Franks responded, before warning that ISIS may succeed in committing violence against Christians because “the secular left” in America is diluting the country’s Christian heritage. He said that ISIS may rise into power just as the Nazis did even though at one point they were just “a bunch of idiots riding across France [sic] in their brownshirts.”

Franks later claimed that there is currently a legal challenge to crosses in Arlington National Cemetery, but as many fact-checkers point out, such a lawsuit does not exist and is merely a rumor. A similar story of a lawsuit against religious symbols at a military cemetery originated from a satirical website.

I think this president almost wants us to take a vacation from history, but, bishop, if we look historically, the political leaders had a profound impact on the religious communities. I don’t have to go back to the days of Adolf Hitler but the bottom line is there was a time when the Nazi Party was a bunch of idiots riding across France [sic] in their brownshirts, they had a horrific, evil intent but they had no capacity to do anybody any harm. But that philosophy that they had germinated into the intelligentsia of Germany and it grew and, my God, we had 50 million people killed as a result. Six million Jews and 50 million people died in that horrifying tragedy and yet today in the Islamic State, ISIS, we have a group that is literally as evil as the Nazis were, if not more, and they have no regard to their own lives, they are more intent than anything I’ve ever seen. If somehow this ideology that they are putting forward begins to take root in the Islamic world of 1.3 billion people, the threat that that represents to Christianity and to the world is almost impossible for me to articulate.

But as you said and as you said so wisely, it’s always the water on the inside of the ship that sinks it. Our greatest danger to religious freedom, I believe, is within our own country where we’re doing as you said, ‘take those crosses down.’ I used to say that the secular left would never quit until they said that we needed to start taking down the stars of David and the crosses of Calvary out of the tombstones out in Arlington National Cemetery. People thought that was an outrageous statement but just in the last two weeks there’s a group now that wants us to do that. It’s the water on the inside of the ship that sinks it, God help us to be salt and light while there’s still time because our faith is at risk. And if our faith in this country is destroyed, then I believe that the very foundation of the nation is destroyed and America will be remembered rather than recognized in the present.

Michael Savage: Veterans With PTSD Are Destroying America

Last week on his talk radio program, Michael Savage got into an argument with a caller over whether California lawmakers should rename a San Francisco tunnel in honor of Robin Williams. The caller, who said he was a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), defended the move, while Savage objected to the plan, claiming that it would promote suicide.

After a lengthy argument, Savage hung up on the caller and proceeded to attack him. “I am so sick and tired with everyone with their complaints about PTSD, depression. Everyone wants their hand held and a check, a government check. What, are you the only generation that had PTSD? The only generation that’s depressed?”

He then blamed America’s problems on those who “cry like a little baby” over depression: “If the whole nation is told, ‘boo-hoo-hoo, come and get a medication, come and get treatment, talk about mental illness,’ you know what you wind up with? You wind up with Obama in the White House and lawyers in every phase of the government, that’s what you wind up with. It’s a weak, sick nation. A weak, sick, broken nation.” 

Savage continued that veterans with PTSD are a “bunch of losers” and recommended that they be more like Michael Savage.

“You need men like me to save the country,” he said. “You need men to stand up and say stop crying like a baby over everything.” He continued that “men are so weak and so narcissistic” that it is “no wonder ISIS can defeat our military.”

Phyllis Schlafly: End Early Voting Because It Helps Democrats

When Republican-controlled legislatures around the country have passed laws curtailing early voting, they have invariably insisted that these laws have nothing to do with politics.

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly, however, has no problem with admitting the reason she wants to do away with early voting: giving people more time to cast their ballots might help Democrats.

Writing today in WorldNetDaily, Schlafly insists — without any evidence — that early voting is rife with fraud and enables Democratic campaign workers to “harass and nag low-information voters until they turned in their ballots.”

She blames early voting in states like Ohio for President Obama’s reelection victory, and worries that early voting may help Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections as people who have already voted “may wish to change their vote” because of “the Ebola scandal.”

Last year, Schlafly offered a similar defense of a voter suppression law in North Carolina.

Because of the Ebola scandal, some may wish to change their vote, but that is impossible for those who have already voted. Some early voters may die before Election Day, and early voting allows the votes of those dead people to be included. If there is any dispute over whether their votes were valid or fraudulent, they are no longer with us to defend themselves.

Typically, there are no poll watchers during early voting, so the integrity of the casting of the ballots cannot be monitored. Many of the early votes are cast in a coercive environment, such as a union boss driving employees to the polls and watching over the process so there is no guarantee that their votes will be private.

Democrats promote early voting for the same reason they oppose voter ID: because they view early voting as helping their side. In the absurdly long 35-day period of early voting in Ohio in 2012, Democrats racked up perhaps a million-vote advantage over Republicans before Election Day was ever reached.

Republicans have been slow to realize how early voting helps the Democrats. Most top Republican political operatives firmly believed, right up to the morning of the 2012 election, that Mitt Romney was going to win.

In his expert analysis of why Republicans lost the 2012 election, scholar and WND writer Jerome Corsi quoted Mitt Romney’s chief campaign strategist, Stuart Stevens, on the last plane flight of the 2012 campaign, confidently assuring all that Romney would win the presidency because “a positive campaign message trumps a good ground game every time.”

Romney lacked a message, too, but he was mainly defeated by the Democrats’ superb ground game, which exploited early voting in key states such as Florida and Ohio. By continuously updating their computer-based information about who had not yet voted, Democrats could harass and nag low-information voters until they turned in their ballots.
