Mat Staver: Homosexuality Part Of Communist Plan To Defeat The West

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel appeared on Tuesday’s edition of “Crosstalk,” Voice of Christian Youth America’s flagship radio program, where he argued that homosexuality will destroy civilization as we know it.

When a caller cited Cleon Skousen’s 1956 book “The Naked Communist” to claim that homosexuality is part of a communist endeavor “to soften America for the final takeover,” Staver completely agreed: “Yes, Skousen has a lot of good writings. In fact, he mentioned that many years ago and here’s where we are today.”

“Same-sex marriage is the beginning of the end of western civilization,” he said. “It really is, it’s that serious.”

Staver said leaders in countries like Peru and Jamaica have told them that Obama is an “interventionist” “with regards to immoral issues,” warning that the president is “using our State Department dollars and the ambassadors that he’s appointed to promote abortion and same-sex marriage.”

He also decried America’s “shameful” opposition to Jamaica’s ban on homosexuality.

Staver recently traveled to the country to defend its laws making it a crime to be gay.

Overheard At Anti-Obama Rally: 'Hang Him! We've Got Rope'

Yesterday, a small group of right-wing demonstrators gathered in front of the White House at a rally scheduled to coincide with the visit of a number of sheriffs who were in Washington, D.C., to protest President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

One activist who was filming the rally spoke to several attendees who said they wanted to lynch Obama.

Among the remarks picked up by the cameraman:

“Hang the traitor!”

“Hang the lying Kenyan traitor!”

“We’ve got rope.”

“Plenty of trees in the front yard, wouldn’t be the first one hung on one of them trees.”

“Whatever happened to those good ol’ days?”

“Don’t snap his neck, you watch him choke to death.”

“He’s just biding his time until Satan takes him home to where he belongs.”

Phyllis Schlafly: Attention On Campus Rape Part Of 'War On Men,' Proof 'It's Really Dangerous For A Guy To Go To College'

In an interview today with WorldNetDaily, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly weighed in on efforts to combat sexual assaults on college campuses, which she contended are part of a feminist “war on men.”

Schlafly pointed to questions surrounding the accuracy of a Rolling Stone report on rape allegations at the University of Virginia as evidence that increased attention to fighting sexual assault on campuses is misplaced and reiterated her claim that college is a “dangerous” place for men: “It’s really dangerous for a guy to go to college these days. He’s better off if he doesn’t talk to any women when he gets there. The feminists are perfectly glad to make false accusations and then claim all men are capable of some dastardly deed like rape.”

“There isn’t any rape culture,” Schlafly said. “There is a war on men, and [feminists] are very open about it.”

This is, of course, coming from the anti-feminist activist who once said that men cannot rape their wives since “by getting married, the woman has consented to sex.

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly believes feminists are so vehemently defending Jackie and her partially discredited allegations because they don’t want to lose out on an anti-male narrative.

“The reason they bought into the story and didn’t have any suspicions about the flakiness of it is antagonism toward men in general,” Schlafly said. “Their cry is they want to abolish the patriarchy, and anything that hurts men is something that pleases the feminists.”

“There isn’t any rape culture,” she said. “There’s nothing ‘culture’ about rape. Rape is a crime and ought to be punished. But people who make false accusations about a dangerous crime like that also ought to be punished, and I hope everybody connected with this false story will suffer the consequences.”

Schlafly, whose recently published book “Who Killed the American Family?” came out just days before she turned 90, sees a national media landscape dominated by feminists and those who are afraid to anger the feminists.

“They really are a vicious group,” she said. “They don’t like men, and they want anything to discredit and destroy men. I think it’s very helpful that the [UVA rape] story has been exposed as a fraud, and anybody who heard it in the first place should have suspected it was a fraud.”

Schlafly has spent the better part of her long career battling feminists, and she even goes so far as to say there is a war on men in the U.S., not a war on women.

“There is a war on men, and [feminists] are very open about it,” she said. “They don’t conceal it; they brag about it. You read all of their material – they’re always saying they want to abolish the patriarchy. They said that husbands are not necessary in a marriage, they’re not necessary in raising children.”

Noting the harm done to men falsely accused of rape, she pointed to the three Duke lacrosse players whose reputations were smeared in 2006.

“It’s really dangerous for a guy to go to college these days. He’s better off if he doesn’t talk to any women when he gets there,” Schlafly said. “The feminists are perfectly glad to make false accusations and then claim all men are capable of some dastardly deed like rape.”

Steve King Defends Government Shutdown Since The Voters Will Forget Anyway

Rep. Steve King took his crusade to block President Obama’s executive action on immigration to “The Steve Deace Show” last night, where the Iowa congressman urged House Republicans to thwart immigration reform even if it results in a government shutdown.

“Let’s throw out the fact that we have a Marxist in the White House and our very way of life is at stake,” Deace explained, “could an argument be made that a smart political move is to actually have a showdown with the president right now?”

After all, the radio host said, “in case it does blow up and the media loses their minds, the next election that matters is not for twenty-three months and a lot of things can change, Jesus could come back in the next twenty-three months, a lot of things can change in twenty-three months so let’s do it now when not much damage can be done [and] not many people are paying attention.”

King said he completely agreed with Deace’s analysis, adding that “there’s probably no better time to fight than now and no better time to risk a government shutdown than now.”

“The people would have twenty-three months to forget, presumably, but I would like it rather that they remember that we would have the courage, and I wish they don’t think it takes a lot, to stand on principle,” he said. “When the president violates his oath of office, it’s ever more incumbent upon the rest of us to stand up to our oath.”

Young Earth Creationists Take To Times Square To Advertise Noah's Ark Theme Park

Answers in Genesis, the group which runs the Creation Museum, hopes to promote its Noah’s Ark-themed amusement park with a digital billboard in Times Square, where the group last year took out a billboard to send a message to its “atheist friends,” and several billboards in its home state of Kentucky.

“The irony is that as secularists are criticizing the Ark project and relegating Noah’s Ark to a myth, they are passing around their own Ark myths,” said AiG president Ken Ham. “These agitators (most of them outside the state) are trying to undermine the Ark Encounter by spreading misinformation and putting pressure on Kentucky officials to reject an offer of a partial refund of future sales tax collected at the finished theme park (if the park sees excellent attendance and brings in significant tourism dollars to the state).”

To counter the secularists’ efforts, AiG’s billboard campaign will inform members of the public that they can learn the truth about the Ark project at As some of the Ark myths have been circulated by newspapers in the state, some of the 16 boards will be seen in neighborhoods near the offices of Kentucky’s major newspapers in Louisville, Lexington, and Frankfort.

The billboard campaign that begins this week (a Lexington board is already up) runs into part of January. In addition, a 15-second digital board will be displayed starting Wednesday in New York City’s Times Square (on Broadway between 45th & 46th streets, above the Disney Store), with 672 spots per day during this busy holiday season at this bustling square. Overall, the combined outdoor effort is expected to deliver more than 20 million impressions.

Michele Bachmann Pledges To Give 'Female Perspective' To Counter Hillary Clinton, Remind People Of Benghazi

After giving her farewell address to the U.S. House last night, Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on Newsmax today to discuss her plan to stop Hillary Clinton.

Bachmann told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg that she plans to “weigh in with a female perspective” on the 2016 presidential election, reminding people that Clinton is the “godmother of Obamacare” and is to blame for the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Ironically, the House Intelligence Committee, where Bachmann serves as a Republican member, last month issued a report debunking many of the Benghazi conspiracy theories that Bachmann hopes will topple a potential Clinton presidential candidacy.

Rick Wiles Thinks Israel And America Control ISIS

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles is getting behind a wild conspiracy theory that Israel is “secretly involved with ISIS,” adding to his previous claims that the U.S. is secretly assisting ISIS. On Tuesday, the “Trunews” host, who somehow keeps getting Republican congressmen to appear on his radio show, reacted to news reports that Israel bombed nine targets linked to Hezbollah, an ally of the Syrian government, outside of Damascus.

“Israel has been mum all year about ISIS,” Wiles said. “There hasn’t been a peep out of Israel about ISIS; there’s been a lot of speculation about who is really behind ISIS.”

Wiles also said he doesn’t believe that the U.S.-led coalition has executed over 1,000 airstrikes against ISIS: “I seriously doubt that ISIS is being attacked because ISIS is the creation of Western intelligence agencies and I would not be surprised to find that the Israeli Mossad has its hands in the creation of ISIS also.”

Ben Carson Thinks God Is Calling On Him To Save America, Stop Putinesque Obama

Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody has been slowly releasing excerpts from his interview with likely Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, who has told Brody that liberals are responsible for “hate speech” and that he “feels fingers” from God telling him to make a run for the White House.

Today, Brody released another segment from his interview where the conservative activist was joined by his wife, Candy, to describe how God is calling him to make a presidential bid.

“We recognize that we are being instruments in the hand of God, he is the one who really orchestrates all of this,” Carson said.

After warning that the future of America is in peril, Carson stressed that “we are in fact a Judeo-Christian nation and I think that’s a huge part of our strength.”

“We most definitely need a spiritual awakening,” he added.

Carson also said that if he had the chance to speak to President Obama, he would tell him to stop violating the Constitution: “Our president is very much like Putin.”

Peter King: 'Hate America' Club Used Torture Report To Distract From Obamacare

Not only are conservatives outraged over the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on the use of torture by the CIA, but some even seem to think that the report was made public in order to distract Americans from a congressional hearing on Obamacare.

In an appearance today on Newsmax, Rep. Peter King claimed that the CIA didn’t torture anyone — calling their enhanced interrogation techniques “mild” — and decried torture critics for having a “‘hate America first’ attitude that is self-loathing, self-hatred.”

The New York Republican then told host J.D. Hayworth that the report came to light as a way to deflect attention from Jonathan Gruber’s testimony to the House Oversight Committee on Obamacare.

Fox's Ralph Peters: Torture Report Provides 'Aid And Comfort To The Enemy,' Turns Terrorists Into Heroes

Fox News analyst Ralph Peters blasted Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Dianne Feinstein today for releasing her committee’s report on CIA abuses, telling Steve Mazlberg of Newsmax TV in an interview that he believes Feinstein and White House officials will now bear responsibility for future American deaths that may occur as a form of violent retaliation for U.S. torture.

“Will she accept responsibility for the American deaths, the American kidnappings and tortures at the hands of terrorists that are going to result from her stunt?” he asked. “It’s inexcusable, it’s vile, it’s providing aid and comfort to the enemy.”

Peters also took issue with Feinstein’s claim that the torture tactics used violate American values, arguing that the techniques didn’t undermine the values of “real Americans.”

“She is absolutely full of it,” he said. “This is just absolutely horrible.”

Warning that the report will “endanger American lives,” Peters called Feinstein’s statement a “propaganda gift to the terrorists” and claimed that it made one terrorist who experienced torture into “a martyr and hero.”

Peters said that progressives are now “vilifying” intelligence agents because they know it would be too unpopular to attack military service members: “It’s the same thing as back in Vietnam calling soldiers baby killers.”
