Ted Cruz: Pray To Stop The 'Assault on Marriage'

The Christian Broadcasting Network has released more footage from the recent Religious Right summit in Iowa organized by David Lane and featuring speakers like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Cruz, who told CBN in an interview that gay rights advocates intend to dispose of the First Amendment and pass hate speech laws, won plaudits from the audience of conservative activists for his attacks on gay rights advocates and “judicial activism.”

“On marriage there is no issue in which we need to be more on our knees because the momentum is with the opponents of traditional marriage,” Cruz said. “We’re facing an assault on marriage.”

He scolded “unelected judges” who think “we know better” on marriage, and urged pastors to “to speak to your congregations and to mobilize the people, and mobilize them more than anything to pray.”

Watch:

On marriage there is no issue in which we need to be more on our knees because the momentum is with the opponents of traditional marriage. We saw a decision from the US Supreme Court, a decision that some have herald, even some conservatives have herald, I think that decision was an abject demonstration of judicial activism. Five unelected judges saying we are going to set aside the policy preference of the state of California, the citizens not of some crazy right-wing state—California. The citizens of California went to vote and they voted and said in the state of California we want marriage to be the traditional union of one man and one woman, and the US Supreme Court, as a result of its decision said you have no right to define marriage in your state, we know better. We’re facing an assault on marriage. As pastors, each of you has a special responsibility and a special ability to speak to your congregations and to mobilize the people, and mobilize them more than anything to pray.

How Computers Debunk Evolution

Amazingly, Jerry Newcombe of Truth In Action Ministries disproves the entire theory of evolution every day when he logs into his computer. In a column arguing that the “Cambrian explosion” debunks evolution (actually, it doesn’t), Newcombe begins by saying that logging into a computer and entering a password makes it clear “how impossible evolution is”:

Every time I log into a computer and have to enter my password, I'm reminded of how impossible evolution is.

One little mistake on the keypad, and I can't log in. There's even a website where I seem to be in permanent "log-in purgatory." I can't login ever. Granted, it's operator error. But still...

How does this tie to evolution? Because if evolution were true, then we are to believe a whole series of complex sequences managed to get everything right---repeatedly.

Well, there you have it. Take that, science!

Feder: Latinos Like 'Pagan Armies' of the Bible, 'Yearning to Breathe Free Stuff'

Count Don Feder out of the growing movement of evangelicals who are championing immigration reform. The World Congress of Families spokesman writes today that undocumented immigrants shouldn’t be treated with compassion, but instead like violent pagan forces: “The illegal immigrants swarming over our southern border are more akin to the pagan armies which regularly invaded the land of Israel and were repulsed by military force. The Bible is a guide for living, not a suicide pact.”

“Securing our borders with an amnesty is like promoting chastity with condoms,” Feder continues. “Political compassion has resulted in most of the horrors of modernity,” such as communism and “the destruction of the black family.”

He warns that an immigration reform law “will end up electing a lot of pro-abortion, anti-marriage leftists” as “illegals will elect a host of welfare-state Democrats.” “This is a constituency that yearns to breathe free stuff,” he writes.

Feder even makes the false claim that immigrants tend to be criminals: “Apparently, murder, rape and vehicular homicide are jobs Americans won't do.”

Securing our borders with an amnesty is like promoting chastity with condoms. In 1986, we amnestied 2.7 million to fix our "broken immigration system." Now we have at least 11.1 million. In the mid-1980s, they were coming at a rate of 500,000 a year. Now we're getting a million annually. If this amnesty passes, how many will we be dealing with in another 20 years?

"Appropriate penalties" and earned citizenship are a smoke screen. The penalties assessed will never be collected. (It's in the left's interest to remove any impediments to citizenship/voting.) Citizenship won't be earned. (How, by memorizing the Gettysburg Address?) It will be bestowed.



The alien or foreigner did not receive permission to live in the land. The illegal immigrants swarming over our southern border are more akin to the pagan armies which regularly invaded the land of Israel and were repulsed by military force. The Bible is a guide for living, not a suicide pact.

Based on his misreading of Scriptures, Rev. [Samuel] Rodriguez calls for compassion toward "the least among us," which apparently does not include the citizens preyed on by criminal aliens, or the unskilled worker who loses his job because he can't compete with cheap labor imported from Tijuana.

Compassion and politics are a volatile mix. In the guise of fighting poverty, 1960s Great Society programs destroyed the black family and gave us an 80% out-of-wedlock birth rate in the inner city.

Currently, anti-family ideologues are playing the compassion card against those of us who resist the deconstruction of marriage. In his majority opinion overruling DOMA, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy said defenders of the natural family are telling gays that their unions are inferior to ours. No wonder homosexuals think Republicans are mean.



This is a constituency that yearns to breathe free stuff. An April 2012 Pew Hispanic Center poll showed a staggering 75% want more government services, compared to 41% of the general public. Among the public at large, 45% want smaller government, against 19% of Hispanics.



Ultimately, it's all academic. Hispanics don't vote on social issues. Only one House member whose district borders Mexico voted against Obamacare. In pursuit of government deluxe, newly enfranchised illegals will elect a host of welfare-state Democrats, who will vote predictably on abortion, marriage and judicial nominations. In the name of caring for the least-among-us, evangelicals will end up electing a lot of pro-abortion, anti-marriage leftists.

The strangers among us include a quarter of all inmates in the federal prison system. With another 297,000 in state prisons and jails, they comprise 16.4% of the country's total prison population. Apparently, murder, rape and vehicular homicide are jobs Americans won't do.



Political compassion has resulted in most of the horrors of modernity – from the French Revolution (liberty, equality and fraternity aren't bad things) to communism (to each according to his need), to the destruction of the black family (in the name of a war on poverty) to the war on the family (in the name of equality).

What the left never learned some on the right are quickly forgetting.

Diana West: Obamacare Will Turn US Into A 'Leading Outpost of the Caliphate'

WorldNetDaily’s Diana West is out with a new column entitled “Huma Abedin: Muslim Brotherhood Princess.”

Of course, since this is WorldNetDaily after all, she somehow managed to link this to Obamacare.

West maintains that the health care reform law means that the Communists were the real winners of the Cold War as the “totalitarian” law creates a “super-state” that will destroy the Republic.

She argues that the “cover-up” of Huma Abedin’s status as “a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess” is part of a plan to shield Americans from the “Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain”: “[Michele] Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.”

With our guards down to the Marxist-Muslim conspiracy, Americans will become complacent to the supposed Islamic infiltration of government and the dangers of Obamacare: “don’t worry. We ‘won’ the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare ‘victory’ in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.”

Nationalized health care was one of the first programs enacted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in 1917. Nearly a century later, the U.S. enacted “Obamacare.”

Who won the Cold War again? This is one of the questions I work over in my new book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character” (St. Martin’s Press). Can we realistically claim liberty and free markets triumphed over collectivism when today there is only a thin Senate line trying to fend off Obamacare’s totalitarian intrusions into citizens’ lives? We see perhaps a dozen or so patriots led by conservative ace Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, gallantly mustering forces to defund further enforcement of this government behemoth aborning. (Call your senators and ask them to join – or tell you why they didn’t at the next town hall.) How can we maintain that the republic endured when a centralized super-state has taken its place?

So, once more, who really won the Cold War? The question is better framed when we realize that the battleground where the Free World met Marx was also psychological. Consciously or not, we struggled against an insidious Marxist ideology that was always, at root, an assault on our nation’s character.

The most recent manifestation of victory over the American character shows through the Anthony Weiner-Huma Abedin scandal. This scandal is a paradoxical double whammy of both exposure and cover-up.



True, the barbs of Huma’s ambition – as naked as her husband’s dirty pics – have broken through the gauzy chatter. But cut off from context, they, too, end up perpetuating what is, in fact, the great Huma Abedin cover-up.

It is not enough to analyze Huma Abedin as a “political wife.” Abedin is also a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess. As such, the ideological implications of her actions – plus her long and privileged access to U.S. policy-making through Hillary Clinton – must be considered, particularly in the context of national security.



If the Abedin-Muslim Brotherhood story rings any bells, it is probably because of Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. Last summer, Bachmann, along with four other House Republicans, raised the issue of Huma Abedin among other examples of possible Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain. They asked inspectors general at five departments, including the State Department, to investigate their concerns, but nothing happened – nothing, that is, except that Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.

This made the entire subject, already taboo, positively radioactive – with Huma Abedin becoming the poster victim of this supposed “McCarthyism” redux.

End of story. Never mind facts. Never mind also that in his day, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was asking urgently important questions about national security, too.

But don’t worry. We “won” the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare “victory” in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.

NOM's Schubert: Supreme Court Is 'Shredding The Constitution'

In an interview with Steve Deace yesterday, Frank Schubert, the top campaign strategist for anti-gay groups including the National Organization for Marriage, accused the Supreme Court of “shredding of the Constitution” with its “horrendous” court decision on Prop 8. Schubert was upset that the ruling cleared the way for attorneys general not to defend certain laws.

However, administrations from those of Harry Truman to George W. Bush (including Ronald Reagan) have refused to defend laws they believe are unconstitutional. “It’s going to come back I think and wreak havoc in lots of other areas,” Schubert continued. 

He also called the Windsor decision “preposterous” and claimed it “calls into question the integrity of the governmental process itself. These judges have now put themselves as our supreme overlords, the overseers of our conduct.”

ALIPAC: Immigrant '3rd World Invaders' Will Create 'One Party System'

The anti-immigrant group that has floated a military coup and “illegal and violent” actions to overthrow President Obama is now warning that immigration reform will “turn America into a one party system.” Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) alleges that the “nation destroying amnesty plan” will give Democrats power for “hundreds of years” as a result of “this injection of new entitlement voters.”

“Millions of 3rd world invaders,” ALIPAC claims, will gain power over “the Americans who founded this nation and who have sustained it with blood, sweat, and taxes for 200 years.”

We have been working hard to explain to politically suicidal Republicans eager to lead their party and our nation to doom with amnesty for illegal aliens that 20 million illegal alien voters will turn America into a one party system. Perhaps some of these Republicans like McCain, Rubio, Flake, Graham, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan plan to just join this one party system. Or even worse, perhaps we are already governed by that one party system!

But today, we have the proof we need to turn more than 90% of Republicans and real Conservatives so firmly against the Obama backed nation destroying amnesty plan in the US House!



A new poll by the Pew Research Center shows that the new voting bloc of illegal aliens created by the Senate's S. 744 and new legislation being planned in the House will vote Democrat 8 to 1. This injection of new entitlement voters behind Democrats will assure the Democrats control Congress, the Senate, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency for decades if not hundreds of years into the future.

In fact, within 10 years of implementation of Amnesty, Republicans will be unlikely to control many state legislatures as well. All true Americans of every race and party will be playing defense forevermore if this amnesty passes!

If you are most like the Americans who founded this nation and who have sustained it with blood, sweat, and taxes for 200 years, then you will no longer be the driving force in American politics! While Democrats will enjoy initial gains, even liberals will quickly learn they have very little in common with the millions of 3rd world invaders streaming in from now on.

The organization’s leader, William Gheen, called for “an unprecedented political uprising” to stop Republican leaders who “will stick their daggers in the heart of the GOP.”

ALIPAC is warning all Americans that the new voting bloc of more than 20 million illegal aliens will vote against the interests of current Americans although Democrats will receive an initial boost from amnesty. ALIPAC is also warning Republicans that GOP Lawmakers such as Speaker John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Bob Goodlatte (VA-6) are in secret negotiations with Obama's faction to force Amnesty through the US House in 2013!

"John Boehner and Cantor will stick their daggers in the heart of the GOP in the very final moments under this plan by discarding the Hastert Rule and leading a few dozen GOP lawmakers to vote with most Democrats to send the Amnesty bill to Obama's desk!" said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "Only an unprecedented political uprising of Americans in the last of 2013 has any hope of disrupting this nation destroying amnesty plot!"

ALIPAC hopes to Defeat Amnesty in 2013 and then lead the resulting backlash into the 2014 elections where many illegal immigration supporting lawmakers can be removed from office by the off year elections, which have elected many base conservatives before like in 2010 and 1994!

Keyes: Muslim Obama Knows He 'Shouldn't Be President'

Alan Keyes is still very, very upset with President Obama, who defeated Keyes in the 2004 Illinois Senate race, as he told Stan Solomon that Obama’s recent comments on race prove that he shouldn’t be president…and is a Muslim.

“So Obama, thirty five years ago, would have been a burglar, prone to assault people and do other kinds of things that were outside the bounds of the law, that’s interesting, that’s kind of telling.” Keyes, “He would have been walking the streets of Indonesia being stalked by his fellow Muslims? I don’t know.”

No matter how you cut that remark, it’s an absurd, ridiculous remark, except for one thing: it suggests that in his own mind, Barack Obama realizes that even though he thinks Trayvon Martin shouldn’t be dead, he knows that Barack Obama shouldn’t be president.

Liberty Counsel Asks Facebook Friends to 'Like' Biblical Death Penalty for Gays

Update: Liberty Counsel has since removed the photo from their page and photo albums.

We know that Liberty Counsel has praised countries that criminalize homosexuality, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Liberty Counsel is citing Leviticus 20:13, which commands that gays are to be put to death, on its Facebook cover photo:

We are eagerly awaiting Liberty Counsel’s other Facebook images on stoning women who had sex before marriage; adultererskids who curse their parents; blasphemerssorcerers; Sabbath-breakers and false prophets.

Steve King Rests His Case: 'I Challenge This Civilization To Be Reasonable!'

Iowa Republican Steve King, who was roundly condemned for his recent comments alleging that most young undocumented immigrants are drug smugglers, took to the House Floor today to allege that his freedom of speech is under attack. In a rambling address that touched on everything from the Korean War to the George Zimmerman trial to ancient Greece, King warned that the US is on the brink of losing the freedoms of speech and assembly. The congressmen argued that people don’t agree with him because they simply aren’t being reasonable, since after all he is advocating “the most logical and rational policy” on immigration.

“I think we need a policy that’s right… for America,” King declared. “I challenge this civilization to be reasonable!”

Later, King outlined what exactly that policy looks like. “We need to build a fence, a wall and another fence,” he continued, “we need to put the sensory devices on top of there.”

Then, still defending his remarks painting the vast majority of undocumented youth as drug mules, he declared that he is being unfairly judged by others and therefore America is doomed to decline: “No nation like the United States of America can continue to grow and be a strong nation if we are going to judge people because they disagree with our agenda rather than the content of their statement.”

Rush & Wiles: Obama's Civil War Starting Any Day Now

Nothing delights us more here at Right Wing Watch than having some of our “favorites” get together, and we were lucky enough to see that yesterday when Erik Rush, the insane WorldNetDaily columnist and Fox News regular, was the special guest on TruNews with Rick Wiles.

Rush told Wiles that no one, even people who actually know the definition of communism, will stop him from charging that his opponents are communists. After warning of a looming police state, Rush reiterated his call to put journalists in prison for treason: “I honestly believe that there are some news bureau chiefs who deserve to be sitting and cooling their heels in penitentiaries because some of what is going on in the press I really see as being treasonous, in addition to the high crimes that are being committed by the administration.”

The pair tried to outdo each other to see who was first to warn that Obama was a communist bent on inciting a civil war. Wiles said that he predicted in 2008 that Obama’s would incite a Marxist revolution and try to “start a civil war” just as Abraham Lincoln did.

Rush, however, saw Obama’s plan to “foment a Marxist revolution” develop “before 2007 was out.” He told Wiles that he now fears “there’s any number of things he can do to push the button and have that take place and he’s just getting his ducks in a row.”

Later, Rush charged that people who refuse to believe their claims about the looming civil war are simply in denial, lamenting that “it’s not going to be apparent to them until the bullets are flying.”

Wiles: I said in 2008 that if Mr. Obama gets in the White House he will start a revolution in this country; I warned that this was a Marxist takeover of the country. In January of 2009, I said this man is going to pattern himself—his supporters are going to tell us that he’s not FDR, he’s Abraham Lincoln. Because everybody was thinking they’re going to paint him as the new FDR, and I said in January of 2009, no, they’re going to paint him as Abraham Lincoln and the reason is his agenda is to start a civil war. I know that sounds wild and crazy.

Rush: No.

Wiles: But I really believe this man wants a civil war.

Rush: I don’t want to try to sound like I’m one-upping you but I believe that before 2007 was out, only by virtue of being one of the first people on it, I looked at this guy and I was like, if this guy gets in, he’s going to try to foment a Marxist revolution, straight up. If you look at the way things stand now, he’s got any number of ways he can do it: the economy, you know, economic collapse; race; he’s got the Occupy Wall Street people with Van Jones running them, which few people know, who is still working for Obama, which knew people know. There’s any number of things he can do to push the button and have that take place and he’s just getting his ducks in a row and of course people think that you and I are nuts when we say these things but there is ample evidence there, more than ample evidence.



Rush: I know that there are people who are either socialist or socialist-leaning who don’t advocate for a wholesale communist overthrow of the government, there are some of them who just don’t believe it and then there are a small percentage who are completely, as some would say, down with that. But what bothers me of course that it is so incomprehensible to so many people, even a lot of conservatives, that I’m afraid it’s not going to be apparent to them until the bullets are flying.
