Gordon Robertson: Passport Microchip Leading To Mark Of The Beast

Gordon Robertson filled in for his father, Pat, on today’s edition of “The 700 Club,” where he fielded a question from once concerned viewer who wondered if it was “safe to have” a passport since “it has a microchip inside of it.”

The viewer noted that she knows “it’s not the ‘Mark of the Beast’ — just more Big Brother leading to the Mark.”

Robertson said that while he isn’t familiar with the microchip in U.S. passports, he agreed that it is “leading to another thing that is on your forehead and on your hand.”

Right-Wing Group: LGBT-Inclusive Schools Are 'Abusive Of Children'

When he’s not bravely stopping terrorist attacks, warning of a nonexistent ISIS base in Mexico or coming up with new Benghazi conspiracy theories, Tom Fitton of the conservative group Judicial Watch is fighting LGBT nondiscrimination measures in public schools.

Fitton spoke to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch” about the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board’s recent decision to add protections for gender identity to its nondiscrimination policy, a move which triggered a right-wing backlash, one joined by Fitton.

“I don’t know about you and I’m sure parents out there listening here agree, they don’t want their children in classrooms where kids are being messed with by having teachers call a child by the wrong gender,” Fitton said. “It’s abusive of the children. Assuming they have a true psychological issue, body dysphoria or dysmorphia, whatever you’d like to call it, as a result the whole school gets changed and everything gets turned up on its head, it’s an abuse of the child and an abuse of the other children who are being confused and traumatized by having this confusion enter their classrooms.”

Perkins added that the policy “borderlines on insanity if it has not already crossed over the border.”

“Where are the rights of those children and those parents who want their children not to be threatened and traumatized by these children who are being misused and abused by these adults who have another agenda?” Fitton asked.

Later in the program, Perkins said that public schools have become “hostile to biblical morality and I would say common sense” and are now “putting our children, I think in some cases, physical risk and certainly in spiritual risk.”

Cliff Kincaid: Pope Francis Will Usher In 'Anti-Christian Tyranny'

Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid, no fan of Pope Francis, took to the far-right outlet BarbWire today to attack the pope for calling on world leaders to tackle climate change, meeting with Raul Castro and making “common cause with the forces of international Marxism.”

“Conservative Catholics and many others are terrified of what is to come,” Kincaid wrote. “Some fear that the Roman Catholic Church has joined the campaign for a global socialist state that could turn into an anti-Christian tyranny.”

He also spoke to climate change denier Timothy Ball, who alleged that Pope Benedict XVI was forced out of his position because he was “starting to deal with the problems of pedophilia and corruption in the money in the church,” providing an opening for Francis to start “bringing in these socialist ideas” that “you’ve heard from Obama.”

Of course, BarbWire contributors typically suggest that any criticism of Christians constitutes an attack on religious freedom, but that only seems to apply to their kind of Christians.

Since we published our article, “Catholic Church Captured by ‘Progressive Forces,’” it is starting to dawn on many in and out of the media that Pope Francis has come down on the side of the “progressive,” and even Marxist, forces in the world today.



The evidence is getting too big for the major media to ignore: the pope has made common cause with the forces of international Marxism, which are associated with atheism, the suppression of traditional Christianity and the persecution and murder of Christians.

Conservative Catholics and many others are terrified of what is to come. Some fear that the Roman Catholic Church has joined the campaign for a global socialist state that could turn into an anti-Christian tyranny.

Dr. Timothy Ball, author of The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science, told me during a recent interview: “I think the Catholic Church is regretting making him the pope. They did it because the previous pope was starting to deal with the problems of pedophilia and corruption in the money in the church. So the powerful Cardinals pushed him [Benedict] aside.

“It wasn’t a health matter at all. He just realized he couldn’t beat them…He [Francis] is bringing in these socialist ideas. He’s already expressed some of them—about inequities of wealth, redistributing the wealth, which are themes you’ve heard from Obama.”

Conservative Pundit: 'Major Outbreak Of Violence' Against Obama Administration Imminent

Writing today in BarbWire, conservative talk show host Joe Messina unloaded on President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over a litany of supposed administration scandals and slipups, wondering if they are “smoking from the same crack pipe.”

Messina went on to warn that Obama has “set us back 50 years with race-baiting and his own racial bias,” which he predicted will lead to violence against the government.

“This country is teetering on the brink of a major outbreak of violence, but it will be aimed at the government, not just a ‘black and white’ thing,” Messina said. “The racial violence we have seen in some of these cities will look like a game of Battleship compared to what will happen if this administration keeps trampling on the rights of Americans by putting illegals first before the American people and taking more and more of their less and less hard-earned money to provide services for those here illegally.”

his [sic] Administration also goes on to say there are no scandals, and no issues at the IRS. Benghazi, though a tragedy, was played out by the U.S. perfectly and it all happened because of a movie maker. We are stuck in a Twilight Zone marathon featuring the Obama Chronicles.



There are so many of these examples it pains me to leave them out, but I want to focus on the comment that the world is the safest it’s been than at any other time in history. Where does he get this stuff? Both Obama and Kerry must be smoking from the same crack pipe. None of the military officials or advisors believe this statement – NONE of them!

Race relations haven’t been this bad since the 1960’s. We haven’t seen this much inner city violence since the violent protests of the Vietnam War and the race riots of the 1960’s. For all intents and purposes, we were moving in the right direction with racial issues, maybe not fast enough, but at least moving forward nonetheless.

This president has set us back 50 years with race-baiting and his own racial bias. He started with the infamous “beer summit” saying that the incident where a black college professor was arrested by a white cop for breaking into a house had to be racially motivated. It couldn’t be a mistake. It had to be an overt racist act.

This was just the beginning. For a president who recently stated that he never gets involved until the investigation is over, you can’t prove it by his record.

This country is teetering on the brink of a major outbreak of violence, but it will be aimed at the government, not just a “black and white” thing. The racial violence we have seen in some of these cities will look like a game of Battleship compared to what will happen if this Administration keeps trampling on the rights of Americans by putting illegals first before the American people and taking more and more of their less and less hard-earned money to provide services for those here illegally.

Like Baghdad Bob, this president either sees none of these issues raised before him or he chooses to keep feeding us the propaganda he has been manufacturing since his first days in office.

Right-Wing Activist: 'Jews May Have To Flee' America Due To Obama's Mythical Muslim Refugee Plot

American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios today spoke with Conservative Review editor Daniel Horowitz about refugees from predominantly Muslim countries settling in the U.S., which Rios had previously decried as a “strategic colonization.”

Horowitz, citing zero evidence, blamed anti-Semitism on college campuses on the “flood” of Muslim foreign nationals who study in U.S. universities on student visas, warning that Jews may soon “have to flee” the U.S.

The two then discussed a resettlement program of 300 refugees, mostly from Syria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Southern Idaho. According to the Associated Press, while approximately 4 million people have fled Syria in the midst of its civil war, “the U.S. has resettled just 648 Syrians,” a development which Rios and Horowitz depicted as a deluge.

Horowitz also claimed that President Obama and his administration, along with the United Nations, are deliberately targeting Republican-leaning states for the resettlement of Muslim refugees. (In fact, six of the 10 states that accepted the most refugees voted for Obama’s re-election in 2012.) “It’s no coincidence that Obama, the Obama administration, led by the UN, the UN also gets a bite at the apple, they have some say in this, that they are choosing these red areas,” he said.

“It’s the death of a Republic,” Horowitz said. “And why would anyone willing do that? It’s not good for the country, it’s not good for immigrants, it’s not good for the people here.”

Conservative Pundit: 'Deflategate' Is Really About Benghazi

Washington Times contributor Robert Knight reacted this week to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s suspension for his role in “Deflategate” by explaining that the scandal is really like Benghazi.

Despite the fact that all of the official reports have debunked the conspiracy theories surrounding the 2012 attack, Knight still insists that administration officials, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were deliberately lying about the incident, and like Brady, must be punished.

If nothing really painful happens to Mr. Brady or the Patriots, it would be one more high-profile example of people in public life getting away with dishonesty, which is culturally corrosive. I say this in sorrow, having rooted for the Pats for many years.

Cynicism and misconduct grow when certain people seem to be beyond accountability.

The cultural damage was enormous when Bill Clinton not only was caught in lies about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, but also that he got away with it and has prospered mightily since leaving office. Think of the messages sent to America's children: Character doesn't count, marital vows are a joke, and changing the definitions of words like "is" are just something you do to get people off your back.

On April 14, we learned that the Internal Revenue Service, whose wrath knows no bounds for "everyday American" taxpayers who make mistakes on their tax forms, has retained thousands of IRS employees who violated the tax code and even gave many of them promotions and raises. Above the law? It certainly seems to be the case.



This is the same IRS whose officials flatly denied that orders had come down from the top in Washington to target Tea Party groups before the 2012 elections and deny them nonprofit status. It was just some rogue officials in Cincinnati, we were told.

The head of the nonprofit division, Lois G. Lerner, not only refused to testify under oath to Congress about the IRS jihad against conservatives, but somehow also managed to "lose" thousands of pertinent emails. Hillary Rodham Clinton one-upped her by not only ditching thousands of emails from her stint as secretary of state but also by wiping her personal server clean.

And while we're on the subject of cover-up, nothing has happened to those who got caught brazenly lying about what triggered the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

For two weeks, Obama administration officials, most notably then-United Nations Ambassador Susan E. Rice, President Obama himself and Mrs. Clinton, insisted that an obscure anti-Islamic video triggered a spontaneous riot. Thanks to State Department emails obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests by Judicial Watch, it has become clear that officials in Washington knew about the nature of the attack in real time.

It had nothing to do with a video. Is anybody ever going to face any repercussions about the lies surrounding the deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans?

Compared with these scandals, Deflategate is small potatoes, despite the outsized media attention it's getting because of America's obsession with sports and celebrities.

Pat Robertson: Conservative Christians Must Take 'Dominion' Of US From Obama

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said that conservative Christians need to take “dominion” over the world, or at least the U.S., in order to stop President Obama.

“God has made us in charge of this planet and He’s given us dominion and we’re supposed to exercise dominion,” Robertson said. “When the Christians exercise dominion, good things happen. When we surrender dominion, bad things happen. It’s happening in our country, we’ve got a president that thinks we should surrender dominion, that we should not be involved, that we should lead from behind and all of this stuff, and the world is just going to chaos all around.”

Conservative Christians, Robertson said, must fill Obama’s leadership vacuum: “All around you see these horrible breakouts. Why? Because the leaders aren’t leading. So, we have to lead. God has given us dominion, we have to do that.”

End Times Prophets: Gay Marriage, Legal Abortion Will Lead To Apocalypse

Last month, Anne Graham Lotz issued a “Mayday!” prayer alert predicting that the Rapture could come any day now: “Institutions will collapse. Banks will close. The Stock Market will plunge. Planes will fall out of the sky. Cars will crash on the road. Government in America at every level will disintegrate.”

The far-right outlet WorldNetDaily discovered that other End Times preachers agreed with her assessment, particularly due to U.S. foreign policy, abortion rights and marriage equality, with one WND source pointing to Blood Moons as proof.

Joel Richardson, author of “When a Jew Rules the World: What the Bible Really Says About Israel in the Plan of God,” agrees it is time for Americans to repent.

Richardson told WND: “I do believe the United States may very well be on the brink of judgment. No doubt, the church should pay heed to the warnings of voices such as Anne Graham Lotz or Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. There is no question that now is the moment for the nation to turn to its Creator with prayer and fasting.

“Yet it is important to state that God does not want to chastise this nation, He does not take pleasure in bringing calamity. The Lord’s desire is always that we choose to repent on our own. But in the same way that any good parent will discipline their children in the hopes of training them to do what is right, so also will God discipline nations for the purpose of awakening them and causing them to turn back to Himself.”

Among the reasons Lotz gives for her urgency in declaring a time of prayer and fasting is the “Blood Moons” phenomenon discovered by pastor Mark Biltz.



Biltz, author of “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” agrees, declaring America “is facing an ugly judgment time.”

And while no one can say for sure when such a time could arrive, Biltz cautions, he believes it “could be this year or definitely by the end of next year.”



“God’s judgment will come on America because of our treatment of Israel and being at the forefront of dividing the land of Israel by pushing for a two-state solution,” he said. “And all of this is in the light of the Blood Moons as well.

“Americans should be fasting and praying and interceding as Abraham did before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

But Carl Gallups, pastor, radio host and author of the end-times bestseller “Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation,” says America is already becoming like those doomed cities.

“I am frequently asked if God’s judgment is really getting ready to fall upon America,” he said. “My answer is that it has already begun! Most Americans don’t want to hear that answer. But the facts are staring us in the face. There is already a monumental moral collapse taking place in America.

“Because God has been removed from our schools and our culture, we can see the tangible results of this kind of anti-Christian thinking. Americans feel free to kill our babies for convenience, declare biblical marriage is no longer valid, encourage our children to engage in premarital sex, and persuade our culture to indulge all manner of deviant sexual behaviors. Once you go far enough down this path, a society will grow to hate the Word of God and the people of God who hold to that foundation. We are now there … and the tide continues to rise,” he said.

“Yes – the judgment of God is already falling upon America. But, I agree with Anne Graham Lotz and her biblically bold proclamation, ‘The worst is yet to come and it’s going to be ugly.’”

Rios: 'Cleanse' Your School Board Of Those 'Homosexualizing Schools'

Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition stopped by “Sandy Rios in the Morning” today to discuss the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board’s recent decision to approve a gender identity nondiscrimination measure. Lafferty, who in her last appearance on the show called for schools to ban transgender teachers altogether, lamented the vote’s passage, decrying the “crazed board members” who backed the change.

Rios, the director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, told Lafferty that LGBT rights advocates have been “homosexualizing schools” for over two decades, warning that LGBT themes are “folded into the texts of almost every discipline.”

“Look at the polls showing how our kids feel about homosexuality, even Christian kids,” Rios continued. “Does anybody think that’s by accident? It’s because they are inundated with a steady flow — even in those nice, good schools that you think you have. Good teachers have been silenced and for the most part they have folded.”

She warned that parents only have two options: “You’ve either got to run for school board and cleanse your local governance of these kinds of people making these horrible decisions or you’ve got to pull your kids out of school. I don’t see another choice.”

“You are putting your children in such great danger now,” she said. “Danger because of the confusion, because of the temptation, because of the indoctrination. You’re not helpless to do something about it, but you will be.”

Michael Savage: Obama Prepared To Ban Guns, This Time For Real

Every year, we hear from right-wing outlets some new way that President​ Obama is going to secretly ban guns. Such gun bans, of course, never materialize, prompting the pundit to just move on to the next conspiracy theory.

Take Michael Savage, for example. Last year, the right-wing radio talk show host claimed that Obama would “use Ebola as a pretext” to “take the guns.” Since that never happened, Savage now has a new theory for his fans: Obama will sneak a gun ban into the Trans Pacific Partnership, a controversial free trade deal, without the public ever knowing about it.

“This is a dictatorship as sure as I’m sitting here,” Savage told his listeners on Friday. “Obama’s the most dictatorial president in American history, he was never fit for office, he was voted out of office in November.”

Savage cited a memo from Gun Owners of America that was posted on the conspiracy-theory outlet InfoWars, which claimed that the TPP may include “full implementation of the anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty” and an “illegal amnesty which locks in millions of new, anti-gun voters.”

Savage said that while he has no idea if such language is part of the TPP, he predicted that the “sneaky socialist” Obama will make sure that the trade agreement gives him “dictatorial power over America.”
