Alan Keyes was the guest on several episodes of Gordon Klingenschmitt's "Pray In Jesus Name" program this week, where he asserted that it was "insane" for America to ever have elected President Obama.
On Tuesday's program, Klingenschmitt and Keyes, who was Obama's Republican opponent in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois, discussed the incident earlier this month in which Iran briefly detained and quickly released several U.S. Navy sailors who had inadvertently crossed into Iranian waters due to mechanical problems, with Keyes blasting Obama for supposedly deliberately weakening America and its military because he hates this nation.
"Obama has essentially turned us into a kind of footstool for these people," he stated. "They despise us and no longer believe that we have the will to use such power as we have. And the second thing, sadly, is I think Obama has actually let our power deteriorate to a point where, in terms of the actual wherewithal to deal with some of these situations, he's let it slide. And he's also been a person who, in his rules of engagement and other activities, has done what seems prone to do; he's attacked the people who are supposed to defend us, he's demoralized the soldiers who are responsible for defending us."
"He has actually behaved as what I called him years ago," Keyes concluded. "He's the first anti-American ever to occupy the White House and it was insane to put him there!"
Michael Farris blasts Jerry Falwell, Jr. for fawning all over Donald Trump: "Shame on you, Jerry Falwell, Junior for elevating success in business over the principles of right and wrong that flow from giving priority to the Word of God over the priority of a balance sheet. I am deeply saddened."
Michael Savage is not happy about Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump: "I’m afraid we’re seeing the meltdown now of the campaign where they’re turning to the very same people who destroyed Romney. They’re undermining him from within."
The National Organization for Marriage came up $17,850 short in its end of the year fundraising effort.
Linda Harvey asks, "Is abortion God’s judgment on America? Are we enacting, through 'choice,' our own spiritual demise, our own 'flood' of destruction? It’s a deeply troubling thought."
Finally, Rick Green has scored an extremely important endorsement in his bid for the Texas Supreme Court: Ray Comfort.
On his television program last night, Glenn Beck interviewed a clinical psychologist who diagnosed Donald Trump as either suffering from "narcissistic personality disorder" or being "on the psychotic spectrum," not unlike Adolf Hitler.
Beck returned to the topic on his radio program today during a discussion of Sarah Palin's endorsement of Trump yesterday, declaring that Trump is psychopath who is truly "dangerous" ... just like Barack Obama.
"This is not the first time I've heard" people warn that Trump is a psychopath, Beck declared. "This guy, I believe, is dangerous. I believe he is dangerous."
"And I said this about Barack Obama and so far I have been wrong," he added, sarcastically.
Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission released a new video today aimed at helping his fellow right-wing Christians understand "the biblical qualifications for political office," by which he meant that all of our elected leaders must be Christians ... and men.
"What should be look for in our elected officials?" Cass asked, rhetorically. "The first qualification is they must be a Christian ... What a candidate professes about God is absolutely critical, it will profoundly shape his leadership. Genuine reverence for the Lord is the foundation of knowledge ... so we need a leader who is alive spiritually and who will lead in the fear of God."
And those leaders, Cass explained, must be men.
"The biblical biological requirement for office is you must be male," he stated. "Civil leadership should be conceived of as an extension of the family and God's created order. God established man as the head of the woman and the woman as his helpmate ... In society, the same roles apply as is ordained in the family and in the church."
"The ministry of justice that God has given to the state is generally a man's job," Cass continued. "Yet, there are exceptions in the Bible where God has raised up women like Deborah to judge and even deliver Israel. But it's considered an indictment when there's no strong, godly men to lead and protect their families and society."
Beck did so again today, concluding that Obama is nothing more than "a scared little boy whose daddy left him and his mom abandoned him" ... based entirely upon the choice of artwork that Obama placed in the Oval Office.
Beck reached this obviously scientific conclusion by noting that Obama was free to decorate the Oval Office with any works of art that he wanted, but instead chose to retain many of the same pieces of art that hung in the office under President Bush, which means that "the guy doesn't even know what his own art is" and that Obama is therefore totally lacking in substance or identity.
"I think it's because he doesn't know who he is," Beck reasoned "and that's what makes him 'me, me, me, I, me, look at me!' because he's hiding. There is nothing there. There's nothing there. I think he's a scared little boy whose daddy left him and his mom abandoned him."
Last year, Franklin Graham joined James Dobson at an event in Colorado where the two warned against allowing gay people into churches because, according to Graham, they are representatives of "the Enemy" who wants to "devour our homes" and "devour this nation."
On his radio program today, Dobson played excerpts from his discussion with Graham at the event, in which called for Christians to keep their kids away from gay people and to take over school boards across the nation in order to remove gay-friendly programs.
"We have allowed the Enemy to come into our churches," Graham said. "I was talking to some Christians and they were talking about how they invited these gay children to come into their home and to come into the church and that they were wanting to influence them. And I thought to myself, they're not going to influence those kids; those kids are going to influence those parent's children."
"What happens is we think we can fight by smiling and being real nice and loving," he continued. "We have to understand who the Enemy is and what he wants to do. He wants to devour our homes. He wants to devour this nation and we have to be so careful who we let our kids hang out with. We have to be so careful who we let into the churches. You have immoral people who get into the churches and it begins to effect the others in the church and it is dangerous."
Graham then went on to lament that "homosexuality is taught to be okay" in schools and "that is why I want to get the school boards back" before insisting that he loves gays and therefore feels obligated to tell them that "you cannot stay gay and call yourself a Christian."
That eventually promoted Dobson to rail against the entire LGBT agenda by once again absurdly misunderstanding bisexuality.
"You know what the 'B' stand for?" Dobson asked. "Bisexual. That's orgies! That is lots of sex with lots of people!"
On her program last Friday, Rachel Maddow also took note of the fact that the leading 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls had no problem participating in an event organized and co-hosted by an extremist like Scarborough:
The event itself was broadcast on Saturday morning from the headquarters of the Family Research Council, the group led by Perkins, and wound up being four hours of sanctimonious self-pity and mind-numbing dullness interspersed by short videos submitted by Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio, and Rick Santorum all blatantly pandering to the Religious Right.
After Bush kicked things off by providing a vague promise to be a "strong advocate of religious liberty" as president, Carson turned things up a notch by declaring that "the greatest threat to religious freedom in America today is secular progressivism," as demonstrated by the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision, and vowing that, if elected president, he will work with Congress to pass legislation exempting Christians from having to recognize this decision.
Carson was followed by Cruz, who insisted that Christians "face an unprecedented attack on our first freedom from an aggressive secular state that seeks to push faith out of the public square entirely" and likewise promised that, if elected president, he'll make it his first order of business to see that "the persecution of religious liberty ends today."
Later in the broadcast, Carly Fiorina told those watching that "religious liberty is under assault in our country" and that America needs a leader who will fight to "take our country back." And that leader should be her, Fiorina explained, because "my faith has been tested in good times and in bad and never found wanting."
She was followed by Huckabee, who trotted out his standard campaign promise to simply ignore the Supreme Court's rulings on gay marriage and abortion and essentially outlaw them both through executive action.
Up next, Rubio declared that "it shouldn't surprise us, this all-out assault on our liberties, because we have a president that, when he was a candidate the first time, he said that those of us that have traditional values are bitter people who cling to our guns and to our religion." He went on to promise that, as president, he will proudly "stand up for those" who are called "bigots and haters" for opposing gay marriage and abortion.
Santorum finally closed things out by decrying the "virulent assault" on religious liberty in America as demonstrated by "the lack of tolerance" for those who oppose gay marriage, promising that, as president, he will not only sign the First Amendment Defense Act, but "then we'll move further" and reverse the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.
