Larry Pratt: Obama Will Use Undocumented Immigrants As His 'Praetorian Guard'

Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt is convinced that President Obama is destabilizing the U.S. military while lifting up undocumented immigrants, and Pratt thinks he knows why: the president is trying to create his own personal paramilitary staffed by undocumented immigrants.

Pratt, who once wondered if Obama will have a private army to fight in his looming race war, told a listener on the conservative radio show “Crosstalk” this week that the president will enlist immigrants in his private “Praetorian Guard.”

“Bring them in from out of town, they don’t have any connectivity with the folks in the area and they’re only going to be loyal to the guy who brought him,” he explained.

Pratt also used the interview to address the Bundy Ranch standoff, calling it “one of the greatest moments in modern American history.”

“We saw our fellow Americans, probably with no more urging than an email informing them of what was happening on Cliven Bundy’s ranch, pick up, go out to the ranch, arm themselves before they left and just stood there as interposers between the feds and Mr. Bundy,” he said. “I thought that was incredible. It led to something that took most of us by surprise.”

He added that government officials are just waiting for a crisis in order to implement “special measures” to seize people’s firearms.

Tim Wildmon: Obama Is 'In Love With Islam'

American Family Association President Tim Wildmon once again suggested that President Obama is a secret Muslim today, telling Religious Right leader Gary Bauer during an interview on his American Family Radio Program that the president is “in love with Islam.”

“President Obama, he’s like a broken record, and he’s like, when we had on this Islamic thing, he’s just in love with Islam,” Wildmon said. “He just the other day, you had the situation, oh yeah, where the beheading took place of the first American. Foley, wasn’t that his name? Foley. So what does President Obama do? He spends the first minute or two apologizing — he wasn’t apologizing, explaining and lecturing to us how this was not Islam, Islam is peace. He talks about Muslims have had traditionally a great role in the fabric and forming of America, phrases like that and you’re going, what planet does this guy get his history from?” 

“It’s always the Western secular liberals doing the defending of Islam for the Muslims,” Wildmon added.

Anti-Gay Activists: We Need Our Rosa Parks!

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, visited Janet Mefferd’s radio program yesterday to discuss his call for “civil disobedience on a massive scale” to protest marriage equality and “the gay thought police.” The two agreed that the anti-gay movement is ready for its own Rosa Parks to spark a national outcry with an act of civil disobedience…against marriage equality.

“One of the watershed moments, if not the watershed moment, of the civil rights movement was when Rosa Parks just said, ‘I’m not giving up my seat on the bus, I’m not doing it,’” Mefferd said. “And this sweet woman ended up becoming this massive hero and she didn’t have any other idea behind it other than she didn’t think it was right and she was correct in that. Seems to me we need a Rosa Parks moment and I know we’ve had some of those already where they’ve gone to court over it, but just say, ‘Do your worst, I’m not doing this, I’m not going to do this because this is against my conscience.’”

LaBarbera insisted that governors should flout court rulings striking down same-sex marriage bans and urged anti-gay activists to emulate anti-abortion “sidewalk counselors,” who protest abortion by approaching women entering clinics.

We’re not sure what exactly LaBarbera proposes doing. Maybe he envisions approaching same-sex couples as they walk to their weddings?

LaBarbera also complained that gay rights groups such as GLAAD and HRC are “censoring” him by quoting his extreme rhetoric verbatim and took issue with people who compare anti-gay activists to racists.

If anything, LaBarbera explained, gay people and racists have more in common: “I wouldn’t mind debating David Duke on racism. He’s a racist, I’m not. I think that would be a fun debate. Racism is a sin, just like homosexual practice is a sin.”

LaBarbera added that “the most discriminated against group are the ex-gays, the people who left homosexuality, who are routinely the victims of dehumanization and demonization.”

Robertson: Houston Case Worst In History, Mayor's Lesbian 'Predilections' To Blame

Over the summer, anti-gay activists attempted to repeal the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance through a public referendum, but failed to gather the needed number of valid signatures to put the non-discrimination ordinance up to a vote. The activists sued the city to force them to in the discovery phase of the case accept the petitions, and in response attorneys working with the city subpoenaed several pastors involved in the anti-gay coalition for communications, including sermons, related to petition-gathering.

This complicated case has sparked an outpouring of outrage from Religious Right activists, even though Houston’s mayor, Annise Parker, has since agreed that the subpoenas were too broad and clarified that they weren’t issued by city attorneys.

Pat Robertson, for his part, is so angry about the subpoenas that on “The 700 Club” today he declared the incident to be one of the worst events in all of American history, one that exposes the “predilections” of the openly gay Parker.

“This lady ran as a moderate or whatever and she was a lesbian but she’s stayed quiet, under wraps so to speak, and now suddenly her predilections are coming forward, and this is one of the most outrageous demands that I have ever heard in any city in the United States in our history,” he said. “They’ve got to stop this thing and this woman has just exceeded any authority of any city official that I have ever heard about in the entire history of the United States of America.”

Robertson qualified that “somebody will say ‘you don’t remember what happened in Plymouth in 1700,’ but right now as far as I’m concerned, modern times, this is the worst I’ve ever heard.”

Pat Robertson: You Can Get AIDS From A Towel

Today on “The 700 Club,” an anonymous viewer asked televangelist Pat Robertson if he should reconsider his plans to go on a mission in Kenya due to the Ebola outbreak. While Kenya is in East Africa, the Ebola outbreak has been concentrated in in West Africa.

Robertson, who once raised the specter of gay people attacking heterosexuals with secret AIDS rings, incorrectly warned the aspiring missionary that he could put himself at risk of contracting AIDS…from a towel.

“Not in Kenya. You might get AIDS in Kenya, the people have AIDS, you got to be careful, the towels can have AIDS,” he said.

Louie Gohmert: US Troops Fighting Ebola Were Put 'Out There Like Sacrificial Lambs'

Rep. Louie Gohmert appeared on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program yesterday to complain that the Obama administration is doing too little to contain the Ebola outbreak, which then led him to attack the Obama administration for sending military service members to West Africa to help contain the Ebola outbreak.

Gohmert told the FRC’s Tony Perkins that military efforts to build treatment centers and train Liberian soldiers and aid workers will leave troops “defenseless” and at vulnerable to both the virus and terrorist attacks: “We’ve taken them away from their military function and put them out there like sacrificial lambs in infected countries.”

“Your heart goes out for those members of the 101st Airborne and others that are going to be sent into Ebola-infected epidemic countries,” he said. “Man oh man, there are terrorists in Africa that would love to wipe out a bunch of our military.”

The Texas Republican added that the deployments will leave service members “defenseless” despite military leaders claiming there will be “very low to no risk” to troops.

Erik Rush: 'Diabolical' Obama May 'Want Ebola To Spread In The United States'

In yet another column suggesting that President Obama wants to infect people with Ebola, Erik Rush writes today in WorldNetDaily that the Ebola virus may be part of “various escalating crises in America being orchestrated by the White House in order to ultimately ‘legitimize’ a declaration of martial law in America.”

Rush argues that “given how manifestly diabolical I know this president and his administration to be,” there is a strong chance that administration officials actually “want Ebola to spread in the United States.”

To date, over 8,300 suspected cases and over 4,050 deaths from Ebola have been reported worldwide from this outbreak alone, with the WHO saying that these numbers may be vastly underestimated. The WHO also stated this week that that there could be up to 10,000 new cases a week within two months.

My question then became: Why were only 1,528 people killed by Ebola during the 36 year period between 1976 and 2012, yet over 4,000 have died from Ebola in the last 11 months alone?

At this point, I can only speculate as far as the answer to this question, but I believe it is one every American should be asking, because it suggests that something besides the disease itself is driving this epidemic.

Common sense dictates that since scientists and regulators working for the federal government quite literally wrote the book on Level 4 biocontainment protocols, they know how dangerous Ebola truly is. Thus, their refusal to prudently address the threat leads to one of two conclusions:

1. They have determined that political expedience trumps public health concerns, or

2. They want Ebola to spread in the United States.

Given how manifestly diabolical I know this president and his administration to be, I don’t doubt that the latter is a possibility. It certainly would fall within the scope of concerns some analysts have expressed pertaining to various escalating crises in America being orchestrated by the White House in order to ultimately “legitimize” a declaration of martial law in America.

It would also be child’s play for a determined group of individuals, terrorists – or even a government – to “help along” an epidemic of such a virulent disease.

Michael Savage Imagines 'People's Tribunal' To Try Government Officials And Journalists

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage said yesterday that he wishes that one day there would be some sort of a “people’s tribunal for crimes against America.”

He said that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, his predecessor Leon Panetta, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC president Phil Griffin should all be called before the tribunal since they are all “people who damaged this country most severely.”

Savage gave an idea of how the imaginary tribunal would work: “Department of Education, Arne Duncan, for lowering educational standards in America and brainwashing our children. Arne Duncan, people’s tribunal. ‘Mr. Duncan, step before the people, what actually did you achieve while you were here as secretary of education, Mr. Duncan?’ ‘Well I taught the children how to put a condom on a cucumber.’ ‘OK, next case, 25 years in Siberia.’”

Facebook Alternative 'ReaganBook' Is Back, Now Rebranded As 'FreedomBook'

Over the summer, Religious Right activist Janet Porter launched her very own competitor to Facebook, which she called “ReaganBook,” but quickly pulled the site after “those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family” joined the outlet, which she bizarrely claimed was a threat to her freedom of speech.

Porter, the founder of Faith 2 Action, described ReaganBook as a “Facebook for patriots,” warning that Facebook has a pro-gay bias. She eventually took ReaganBook offline, telling members that “we’re under attack” from people who joined the right-wing social media website only to mock it.

Now, Porter has rebranded ReaganBook as FreedomBook and is only allowing people with invitations to join.

So far, FreedomBook only lists four members, including Porter.

Religious Right Group Opposes Ebola Vaccine Projects Over Stem Cell Research

A “pro-life” group wants the government to stop fast-tracking two potential vaccines to fight the Ebola virus, citing concerns that the vaccine development includes stem cell research.

Debi Vinnedge of Children of God for Life says in a press release today that the Obama administration is “completely irresponsible” for approving projects that not “everyone can use in good conscience,” predicting that “a massive number of people may very well refuse them.”

The group also pushes discredited claims that vaccines cause autism.

Children of God for Life announced today that several Ebola vaccines in development for use worldwide are made using aborted fetal cell lines despite the fact that moral alternatives are reported as equally effective.



"It is completely irresponsible of this Administration to put these problem vaccines on fast-track for approval and ignore the fact that a massive number of people may very well refuse them. Why not fast track a product that everyone can use in good conscience?" asked Vinnedge.

Children of God for Life is urging the public to contact US government agencies and their members of Congress requesting that they expedite the morally acceptable alternatives.
