Sandy Rios Offended By Obama's 'Colbert Report' Appearance, Not Brutal Torture

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association lit into the Senate Intelligence Community on her radio show today for releasing its report [PDF] on the CIA’s use of torture, calling the report’s publication an “evil” act that will “likely cause the death of Americans.”

She even cited the interrogations of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as proof that torture works, even though the report found that such interrogation methods, including waterboarding, only caused the 9/11 mastermind to make false confessions and did not produce much reliable information.

After a long diatribe against the Senate report, Rios unveiled what really offended her: President Obama’s appearance last night on the Colbert Report.

Rios also agreed with the Fox News line that the release of the torture report was merely a Democratic attempt to distract the public from Obamacare. 

Pat Robertson: Fight The 'War On Christmas' And 'Bring In The Green'

The Christian Broadcasting Network is giving away Christmas window clings which “700 Club” host Pat Robertson hopes will remind people to say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

Following a CBN advertisement about a sales clerk who catches herself before saying “Merry Christmas” and construction workers dismantling a Nativity scene, Robertson railed against the “outrageous” and “ridiculous” “War on Christmas.”

In fact, Robertson reminded shop owners of the real reason for the season: saying “Merry Christmas” to customers will boost sales!

“They better get behind Christmas. The holidays don’t bring in the green, but Christmas does,” he said.

RNC Teams Up With Anti-Gay Extremist And Hate Group

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus insists that the GOP’s opposition to marriage equality must be “draped in the concepts of grace, love and respect” … and what better way to show it than partnering with two radical anti-gay groups to send 168 RNC members to Israel.

Priebus is working with David Lane, founder of the American Renewal Project, and the American Family Association to organize a week-long trip to Israel for committee members, paid for by Lane’s group and the AFA. Sen. Rand Paul and Gov. Rick Perry have previously traveled to Israel on tours sponsored by Lane, who also joined Mike Huckabee’s recent European tour.

Proudly working “under the radar,” Lane is a conservative activist who assembles summits in key primary states where pastors and likely presidential candidates meet, including Paul, Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Mike Pence and Bobby Jindal, who is sponsoring a prayer rally with Lane early next year. Lane’s group announced a plan to recruit 1,000 pastors to run for elected office and produced election-themed ads featuring Cruz, Perry, Jindal and Huckabee.

Lane seeks to keep a low profile, in part, to conceal his extreme rhetoric, such as his claim that “homosexuals praying at [Obama’s] inauguration” would cause God to allow “car bombs in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Des Moines, Iowa,” his call for conservatives to “wage war” to stop “the pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage [and] homosexual scouts” and his attacks on Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith.

Despite this track record, Priebus has praised Lane and his concerns about America’s dark future.

The other sponsor of the RNC trip, the American Family Association, also attacked Romney’s faith and has decried homosexuality in similar terms, insisting that homosexuality should be outlawed and praising draconian anti-gay laws in countries like Uganda and Gambia. The AFA’s chief spokesman, Bryan Fischer, has likened homosexuality to terrorism and blamed the Holocaust on gay people.

Fischer has repeatedly defended the massacres and expulsions of Native Americans from their lands as divine justice and once lamented that welfare makes African-American women “rut like rabbits.”

We look forward to Priebus explaining how David Lane and Bryan Fischer are simply trying to address key social issues with “grace, love and respect.”

Bobby Jindal Invites You To 'Turn Back To God' And Attend His Prayer Rally 'The Response'

Texas Gov. Rick Perry kicked off his disastrous 2012 presidential campaign with a prayer rally at which Religious Right luminaries anointed him as their candidate, expressing their hope that President Perry would bring fervent conservatism back to the White House and divine favor back to America.

While Perry’s campaign ultimately went down in flames — and many of the leaders who had previously declared that God backed Perry abandoned him for Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum — his “The Response” prayer rally succeeded in bringing a national spotlight to some of the Religious Right’s most extreme elements, including fanatical anti-gay activists and self-declared apostles and prophets.

Now it seems that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal who, like Perry, has been courting Religious Right activists by stressing his commitment to Christian Nationalism, issuing apoplectic warnings about religious persecution in America and diligently undermining the teaching of evolution in Louisiana schools, also plans to use a prayer rally to help launch his likely presidential campaign. And he’s turned to the very same people who organized the Perry event.

Jindal has been working with David Lane, a conservative activist who has been tirelessly organizing pastors in early primary states while also warning that God will allow terrorist attacks to hit the U.S. as punishment for homosexuality and abortion rights, and Doug Stringer to stage “The Response: Louisiana” in January of next year.

In a “heartfelt message” announcing the rally, Jindal calls on the nation to “turn back to God” and “light the spark that starts a spiritual revival that will put these United States of America back in the right path.”

Pat Buchanan: Body Cameras For Police 'A Libel And Slander Of America'

Pat Buchanan is fuming over President Obama’s call to outfit police officers with body cameras, telling Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today that such a move is decidedly anti-American.

After Hayworth, a former Republican congressman, asked the conservative columnist if he sees the body camera proposal as a method of “profiling police officers,” Buchanan claimed that requiring such cameras wrongly blames law enforcement for violence in America.

“That is a libel and a slander on America,” Buchanan said. “And a libel and a slander on police.”

BarbWire Pundit: War On Christmas And Obama Foreign Policy Will Cause God To Destroy U.S.

Writing today in the conservative outlet BarbWire, Dr. J.P. Sloane suggests that President Bush’s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict brought about Hurricane Katrina and Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon’s fatal stroke. Sloane describes such incidents as acts of God meant to punish the U.S. for not sufficiently supporting Israel as well as Sharon for bowing to U.S pressure.

Now, the right-wing commentator claims, President Obama may bring about “the destruction of America” due to his treatment of Israel. 

Not only is the Obama administration’s foreign policy putting American at risk of divine retribution, Sloane writes, but so is the country’s “Paganistic heathen slope of perversions” and the supposed War on Christmas.

While the White House is pushing Congress to not levy anymore sanctions on the terrorist nation of Iran, it seeks to impose sanctions on the only democracy and best friend of the United States, the small nation of Israel. Israel is 2 1/3 times smaller than California’s San Bernardino County, as opposed to Israel’s enemies who total the size of the whole of the United States of America. What could the Obama Administration be thinking? Who would advise the Obama Administration to do such a thing? We would be presumptuous to make any claim, but the Muslim Brotherhood does come to mind.

In the Bible we see how God uses acts of weather and nations to bring disaster to people who thumb their noses at Him. Consider when we forced Israel to give up Gaza “for peace” and the Israelis had to force their own people to not only vacate Gaza—but do the unthinkable—dig up the graves of their dead and – unceremoniously – take their exhumed corpses with them. Be forewarned America—God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7).

The day the Bush Administration leaned on Israel’s Prime Minister, Arial Sharon, to withdraw from the Gaza, turbulence began to stir in the Mid-Atlantic which became known as “Katrina!” Shortly after the removal of the Jews and their dead from Gaza, Katrina hit the city of New Orleans, breaching the city’s levy at what is known in New Orleans as “the West Bank!” Thousands of New Orleans citizens were flooded from their homes, and many sought shelter in other states. On the heels of the Jews being forced to remove their dead from Gaza, New Orleans was giving up some of its dead from the above ground crypts that dot the city. (In New Orleans they have to bury the dead above ground due to the city being below sea level.) In December—on the heels of the Gaza pullout and America’s Katrina disaster—Prime Minister Ariel Sharon—who capitulated to the Bush Administration’s demand to pull out of Gaza—was stricken with a stroke which left him in a comma until his death in January of this year.



Friends, what we are seeing is the reason America is not mentioned as a world power in Bible end times prophecy. As America continues to travel down the Paganistic heathen slope of perversions—and atheists attacking Christians and Jews—while Muslims are celebrating their holidays in the very capital of our country—yes in our very own White House—Christmas—a legal American holiday—is under attack on a regular annual basis! Obama has reduced our Navy to a weakened state not seen since before 1917, and our overall military strength is at pre-World War Two levels!



As for the Obama Administration—sanctions against Israel? Divide Jerusalem and make East Jerusalem the capital of a pseudo-nation called Palestine—really Obama? Are you sure you want to go there and have as your legacy that you were the President who reigned over the destruction of America and brought about the demise of the late, great United States?

Pat Robertson Defends Torture, Misleads On Immigration

Televangelist Pat Robertson defended the use of torture by the U.S. today, telling “700 Club” viewers that they shouldn’t be troubled by the impending release of a Senate report on torture since such “rather rough” practices were necessary to stop terrorist attacks.

“You may be shocked at some of that, but the truth is we didn’t have another incident after 9/11 and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he was caught, he was the mastermind, and they were rather rough with him but they learned invaluable information,” he said. “So I know it seems brutal but that’s the way it was.”

According to Sen. John McCain, “the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on Khalid Sheik Mohammed produced false and misleading information” while “the best intelligence gained from a CIA detainee” was “obtained through standard, noncoercive means.”

Immediately after his remarks on torture, Robertson accused the Obama administration of releasing “30,000 immigrant criminals” into the U.S., citing a wildly inflated figure that mostly includes people who committed traffic violations.

Eagle Forum Suggests Growing Racial Diversity Is Harmful To America

Roger Schlafly, a son of Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly who has repeatedly taken to the organization’s blog to lament the increasing population of racial minorities in the U.S., yesterday took issue with a William H. Frey article in Newsweek celebrating America’s growing racial diversity.

“Tell that to the people of Ferguson Missouri,” Schlafly wrote in response to Frey’s assertion that minority groups can bring “manpower and brain power” to “otherwise stagnating city and suburban housing markets.”

Schlafly also criticized America’s “immigration policy that appears designed to repopulate the country with non-whites,” adding that he can’t think of any examples where racial diversity has helped the country.

Claim that USA needs to be saved by non-whites

Newsweek magazine has an article on America's Getting Less White, and That Will Save It:

America reached an important milestone in 2011. That occurred when, for the first time in the history of the country, more minority babies than white babies were born in a year.

Soon, most children will be racial minorities: Hispanics, blacks, Asians, and other nonwhite races. And, in about three decades, whites will constitute a minority of all Americans (see chart, below).

...

What will be different going forward is the sheer size of the minority population in the United States. It is arriving “just in time” as the aging white population begins to decline, bringing with it needed manpower and brain power and taking up residence in otherwise stagnating city and suburban housing markets.


Tell that to the people of Ferguson Missouri.

Okay, maybe that is a bad example. But what are the good examples? The article does not provide any. The comments are overwhelmingly skeptical, to put it mildly.

We do have an immigration policy that appears designed to repopulate the country with non-whites. Do our political leaders really believe that this is necessary in order that the whites be saved by the non-whites? If so, I would like to see an explanation of how that is going to work.

Paranoia-Rama: Return Of The 'Libtard'-Loathing Police Chief, Obama's Third Term And Hunger Games Exposed

As everybody knows, America is turning into a chaotic terrorist haven filled with race riots that is also somehow a Nazi police state, or at least that is what we learned this week from some of our favorite right-wing activists and politicians.

Stan Solomon On Michael Brown: 'I'm Glad He's Dead. He Deserves To Be Dead'

Stan Solomon celebrated the death of Michael Brown on his talk show this week during an interview with Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly. The far-right pundit, who marked Trayvon Martin’s death in the same vein, said that “Michael Brown was shot because he’s a thug. I’m glad he’s dead. He deserves to be dead. He was a thug. He had a lifetime of thuggery and his dad was a convicted drug dealer.”

Solomon made the remarks after his other guest, conservative commentator Brent Johnson, dared to suggest that the grand jury investigating Brown’s death was “conducted in an extremely biased matter.” Solomon responded that he was “embarrassed” for Johnson.

Schlafly and Solomon both pledged to give officer Darren Wilson money and defended his role in the shooting.
