Joseph Farah: Democratic Impeachment 'Scam' Is A Scam

Republican leaders in Congress are trying to tamp down calls within their party for President Obama’s impeachment, claiming that such GOP calls for impeachment are in fact a Democratic “scam.”

But WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, an advocate of impeachment, wants Republicans to know that the impeachment “scam” is itself a scam and that “Democrats have successfully conned the Republican majority in the House — or at least the leadership — into believing they welcome it.”

“This,” he adds, “is an example of counterintuitive Saul Alinsky-style disinformation at its best.”

The Democrats have successfully conned the Republican majority in the House – or at least the leadership – into believing they welcome it.

This is an example of counterintuitive Saul Alinsky-style disinformation at its best.

Democrats say they’re raising money fighting impeachment.

They say it will help them in the midterm election.

They say talk of impeaching the first black president smacks of racism.

And the Republican leadership, the Republican elite, the Rockefeller country-club Republicans believe them.

That’s the incredible story of what is happening right now in Washington.

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/1/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/1/14

  • Frank Gaffney worries Central American kids at the border will “likely to fall into the hands of drug gangs and jihadists.”
  • WND muses that watching far-right House members sink a border bill was a “moment that might remind one of a scene from a Frank Capra film.”

GOP Hands Immigration Policy Over To Steve King

The House Republican leadership seems to have handed the handling of the border crisis over to its far-right flank, planning to vote this afternoon on a bill that Rep. Steve King said was “like I ordered it off the menu.”

This is how Rep. Michelle Bachmann described King’s role in the far-right takeover of the border bill:

“We sat down in that room last night, HC 8 … in the Capitol, and it went as smooth as silk. Steve laid it out and in less than two hours we worked it out,” Bachmann said. “It was really a painless process. But it was the first time that I’ve seen leadership recognize, with respect and admiration, the work that Steve King did. Steve helped to completely gut this bill.”

The House is set to vote first on a bill to increase funding to border enforcement and make it easier to deport the Central American children who have been fleeing violence in their home countries. Then, it will vote on a bill to curb President Obama’s ability to halt deportations for DREAMers.

The vote to reel back DACA — Obama’s executive action granting legal status to some undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children — is the result of a concerted campaign by immigration-reform opponents to tie the crisis at the border to deferred action for DREAMers. As soon as the border crisis became national news, anti-immigrant groups started trying to blame it on Obama’s DACA order. But the link just wasn’t there.

The reality is that the border crisis is a separate issue altogether. The number of unaccompanied minors from Central America fleeing to the southern border started growing far before the DACA order in response to increasing drug-war-related violence in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Anti-immigrant advocates also cite rumors among migrants that those who come to the United States are given a “permiso,” or permit, to stay. But stories on this rumor make clear that it stems from notices to appear in court that are given to some undocumented immigrants who are allowed to stay in the country while their cases are pending, and has nothing to do with the DREAM Act or DACA.

So why are Republicans giving into people like Rep. Steve King and Rep. Michele Bachmann to tie a DACA roll-back to the border bill?

Maybe they think that the disinformation campaign to tie DACA to the border crisis will work. But it seems unlikely that moderate voters — who overwhelmingly see the children at the border as refugees who should be given shelter while their cases are considered — will buy the legislative story put forward by some of the most extreme anti-immigrant members of Congress.

Mat Staver: LGBT Equality Means America No Longer 'Shining City On The Hill'

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver lamented this week that the United States’ support for LGBT equality means that America is no longer “the shining city on the hill, the example for other nations to follow” and has instead become “the example of what not to follow.”

Staver and Matt Barber discussed their work pushing anti-gay policies throughout the world on arecent episode of Faith & Freedom Radio, including defending Scott Lively in a lawsuit involving his anti-gay work in Uganda, and efforts to stop sex education and marriage equality in Croatia, which Barber said he hoped “will set a trend in nations around the world.”

“[O]ther nations around the world are affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman, while America is rejecting it,” Staver lamented. “It’s as ridiculous as rejecting the laws of gravity.”

Barber: We were deeply involved and had a hand in helping to reverse Croatia’s harmful sex education policies and supported Croatia’s constitutional amendment affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and Lord willing, this will set a trend in nations around the world.

Staver: Yeah, it will. And it looks like some of the world, a lot of the world, is going the opposite way that America is. America used to be the shining city on the hill, the example for other nations to follow. Now it’s the example of what not to follow. And other nations around the world are affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman, while America is rejecting it. It’s as ridiculous as rejecting the laws of gravity. But some judges think they have the audacity and the arrogance to do just that.

Louie Gohmert: Pro-Immigration Groups Are 'Questioning Your Manhood'

First they cast aspersions on his asparagus; now Rep. Louie Gohmert’s critics are “questioning [his] manhood,” the Texas Republican reported today.

At the end of an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios today, Gohmert lamented that immigration reform proponents, such as the Chamber of Commerce, have tried to “get people belittling” him.

“Sometimes it feels like that Sandy, that you’ve got all these forces against you, you’ve got the chamber, tens of millions of dollars coming and trying to influence people against you and get people belittling you, questioning your manhood,” he said.

“Really? That’s never worked and it doesn’t, but it gets a little frustrating at times.”

Paranoia-Rama: The Impeachment Scam, Obama Recruits Child Soldiers, And OFA Gives Away The Game

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

This week, we learn that Republican calls for impeachment are actually Democrats’ fault, see a major admission about Obama’s presidency, and explore the connections between environmental protection, the border crisis, Obamaphones, and the president’s private army.

5. Republican Calls For Impeachment Are A Democratic Plot.

We’ve always suspected that people like Bryan Fischer and Matt Barber are liberal plants sent to discredit and destroy the conservative movement from within, but we never knew how far the plot extended.

House Speaker John Boehner busted the scheme wide open this week when he declared that the idea of impeaching President Obama is “all a scam started by the Democrats at the White House” and that “this whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill” in an effort to make Republicans look extreme.

Of course, since the very beginning of Obama’s presidency, the GOP’s base has been clamoring to impeach him and remove him from office (although nobody can ever quite agree for what supposed crime).

Those calling for impeachment have even included a number of Republican members of Congress, including Rep. Steve Stockman, who distributed a book in favor of impeachment to every office on Capitol Hill .

And even after Boehner declared the whole thing to be a scam, prominent right-wing talkers including Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin continued to call for impeachment.

So now, we suppose, multiple members of Congress,Fox News personalities, and major Religious Right organizations are all pawns of the Democratic impeachment agenda.

4. Team Obama Admits To Alinskyite Conspiracy.

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah has found more solid proof that President Obama has launched an Alinskyite plot to destroy America: an Organizing For Action birthday card that calls the president the “Organizer in Chief.” Let Farah explain:

“Organizer in Chief”?

Isn’t that one of the derisive titles pinned on Obama by his harshest critics?

Isn’t that what Rush Limbaugh calls him?

Isn’t that what I call him?

Doesn’t the origin of that term come from Obama’s devotion to Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” the bible of radical, left-wing community organizing?

In fact, doesn’t the new hit movie “America” by Dinesh D’Souza focus quite a bit of attention on Obama’s Alinskyite community organizing roots and how he has carried this brand of activism and incitement right into the White House?

Yes to all of the above.

So why would Obama’s very own political action committee be embracing the cheeky slur against the “commander in chief”?

It’s an admission. It’s immunization. It’s a contemptuous non-repudiation of the truth. It’s classic Alinskyism on display.

3. EPA Recruting Central American Kids To Love Big Government.

Infowars put two and two together this week, noting that the Environmental Protection Agency has solicited a contractor for “Hispanic Media and Public Outreach Support” and “English to Spanish Translation Services” around the same time that thousands of Central American children are fleeing to the United States…an obvious plot to hook them early on Big Government:

The Environmental Protection Agency is targeting Spanish-only speakers in an upcoming public relations campaign, raising concerns that bureaucrats are already encouraging illegal aliens from Central America – potential future voters – to support big government.

2. Migrant Kids Will Be Used For Medical Experiments….

Rep. Michelle Bachmann brought her trademark analysis to the crisis of children fleeing violence in Central America who have come in large numbers to the southwestern American border. In an appearance on “WallBuilders Live” this week, Bachmann suggested that the Central American children will be put into the foster care system and used for medical experimentation :

1. …Or Lured With Obamaphones To Become Child Soldiers.

What could be worse than using migrant children as unwilling guinea pigs for medical experiments? How about luring them with free phones to become child soldiers in President Obama’s private army that will impose tyranny on America?

William Gheen and Alex Jones have the scoop :

Rick Wiles: Christians In America Will Soon Be 'Arrested Or Possibly Killed'

End Times radio host Rick Wiles issued a dire warning on his program Wednesday, claiming that “the persecution against Christians in America has started” and will soon “worsen” to the extent that “any man or woman who dares to stand up against this tyranny is in danger of being smeared, arrested or possibly killed.”

He added that the government might soon “set up” Christian conservatives by hacking into their computers and planting false evidence of crimes.

The persecution against Christians in America has started. It won’t go away anytime soon. In fact, it will only worsen in the months and years to come. Any man or woman who dares to stand up against this tyranny is in danger of being smeared, arrested or possibly killed. Accusations of tax evasion and other crimes will be leveled against Christian leaders who refuse to shut up.

One of the most effective methods to deal with troublemakers is to set up that person so that he or she appears to be involved in a scandal. And with today’s technology, it is very easy to create images that look real. And you can hack into a computer and plant criminal evidence.

Renew America: 'Homosexuals Are Merely Commie Pawns' In Effort To 'Take Down America'

Renew America columnist A.J. Castellitto yesterday presented an intriguing “hypothetical”: “If one were determined to take down America…the secret weapon would come from a surprising place…From out of the closet.”

Yes, he writes, it is very possible that “homosexuals are merely commie pawns unknowingly being used for the hat-trick trifecta destruction of freedom, faith, family.”

This is hypothetical.....

If one were determined to take down America; if it were not possible by force; the secret weapon would come from a surprising place....

From out of the closet.

As per number 26 of the 45 declared goals for the Communist Takeover of America (don't blame me – I didn't make these up) a strategic, targeted area of cultural infiltration would include the presentation of homosexuality as "normal, natural, healthy."

I'm wondering if this goal was actually too low on the list?

Considering some of the most recent cultural developments related to the LGBT-SSM-agenda, it seems this goal should have made the top five.

Based on the expressed concerns and priorities of the current administration, it's almost as if they are living in an alternate universe. In fact, one could argue that both the media and our president have been willfully negligent (considering alternative media reports of increased persecution and hostility against Christians worldwide). Meanwhile, religious conservatives, especially those of the Judeo-Christian persuasion, have been experiencing a hostility of a different sort, pertaining to their reluctance to embrace non-traditional marriage.

However, if we take it back to the "hypothetical," it would seem as if the same-sex marriage phenomenon has proven an exceptionally effective tool in uprooting our fundamental foundations.

When applied to the "takeover" agenda, it could be perceived that American homosexuals are merely commie pawns unknowingly being used for the hat-trick trifecta destruction of freedom, faith, family.....

What if individuals with same sex desires are merely being held up and exploited as objects of intolerance? What if they are just the means to a much greater and darker end-game agenda.....?

If it weren't merely a hypothetical, you'd almost believe it to be true.....

David Horowitz: Obama Said Nothing About US Boy Kidnapped In Israel 'Because He Was A Jew'

In an interview with Janet Mefferd yesterday, FrontPage magazine editor David Horowitz falsely claimed that President Obama “said nothing” about the kidnapping and murder of an American boy, along with two Israeli friends, in Israel, saying that the president’s supposed silence was “because he was a Jew, I guess.”

“This is the most disgraceful period in the entire history of the United States, and the most disgraceful administration,” he said.

In fact, the president issued a statement in response to the boys’ murders, calling it a “senseless act of terror” and promising Israel “the full support and friendship of the United States.” Secretary of State John Kerry also condemned “this despicable terrorist act in the strongest possible terms.”

“That’s a sick religion, Islam,” Horowitz also told Mefferd. “People have to recognize that and stop comparing it to Christianity.”

Horowitz also claimed that “tens of thousands of Americans are going to die because of Obama” because “terrorists are going to come across our borders, our porous borders.”

“Look what they’ve done. They’re operating as though this isn’t America. They’re destroying our borders. You can’t have a country without borders,” he said.
