Theodore Shoebat Hopes President Trump Will Institute A 'Christian Supremacist' Society Where Muslims Are Put To Death

Extreme right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat, who was featured along with several Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential hopefuls in Janet Porter's anti-gay "Light Wins" documentary earlier this year, posted a new video over the weekend voicing his displeasure that a New York judge was sworn in using a Quran last week while also declaring his hope that President Donald Trump will institute a "Christian supremacist" society in which people like this judge would be put to death.

In a "Christian supremacist" society, Shoebat explained, "there's no free reign for homosexuals, there's no liberation for perversity and debaseness [sic] and just downright weird mutant psychos walking around with clipped liberal dyke hair and men dressing up as women and all that sick, psycho stuff. People who flaunt the Quran in a Christian society would be arrested, at times put to death, depending on the disposition of the person, if they can be rehabilitated, if they can be conformed, etc ..."

"To me, this judge, as far as I am concerned, in a Christian society, she's worthy of being arrested and executed," he continued, "for going against the body, for really trying to attempt to subvert the order of society" by using a book that is "absolutely demonic and absolutely heretical" during her swearing in. 

"We need a Christian supremacist society or else these things are going to continue to happen," Shoebat stated. "God willing, if Donald Trump wins, and I think he will win, he will put a cap on things like this."

Tenn. State Rep. Mark Pody Was Called By God To Warn That Gay Marriage Is 'Wicked'

Last week, far-right activist "Coach" Dave Daubenmire posted a video of himself introducing Tennessee state Rep. Mark Pody at an event in Nashville designed to generate support for a bill Pody wrote that seeks to negate the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling by declaring that the state will only recognize marriages between one man and one woman and that any court decision to the contrary "is unauthoritative, void, and of no effect."

Speaking at the event, Pody declared that, in the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling, God told him that he was called to be a watchman, tasked with warning the wicked that the price of their sin would be death and that is why he drafted this legislation.

"Ladies and gentlemen," Pody said, "I believe I'm supposed to be speaking to the unsaved, to the people that are performing same-sex marriages, to the people involved in same-sex marriage, it is wicked, it is wrong and I am doing the best I can to warn them."

"I believe that the bill that we're are trying to put out right now is to say, 'No, it will not happen here!'" he continued. "I believe that Nashville, Tennessee, is the time and the place that we put down the stake and we say, 'No more!'"

Now is the time for Christians to rise up against this "unconstitutional tyranny," Pody declared, because "the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being" and God is working miracles in generating support for his legislation.

Bryan Fischer Defends Banning Muslims Because 'Islam Is The Ebola Virus Of Culture'

On his radio program today, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer once again voiced his support for Donald Trump's call to ban all Muslims from entering the country, likening it to imposing a travel ban during the height of last year's Ebola outbreak.

"We have got to suspend Islamic immigration," Fischer said, "until we can figure out how to stop this toxic poison coming into this country. We're not saying all Muslims are carriers of this toxic poison, but the problem is we don't know who is a carrier and who is not. It's like the Ebola virus. Remember when the Ebola virus hit? We simply banned travel from any country where there was an Ebola outbreak. We just said we cannot take the risk. Well, Islam is the Ebola virus of culture."

Of course, Fischer's analogy might work better if the U.S. had actually imposed such a travel ban, but that never happened. Instead, the U.S. simply required travelers from affected West African countries to fly into one of five airports where enhanced screening Ebola protocols had been put into place.

Theodore Shoebat Wants 'An American Inquisition,' Hails The Trail Of Tears

Anti-LGBT activist Theodore Shoebat posted a new video yesterday praising Donald Trump's plan to ban all Muslims from entering the country, approvingly comparing him to Andrew Jackson, whom he hailed as "the greatest president in American history" for oppressing, dislocating and killing thousands of Native Americans because "the heathen needed to be punished."

Trump's plan to ban all Muslims is the epitome of "American values," Shoebat explained, just as was Jackson's treatment of the Native Americans.

"Any Indian that expressed any sort of anti-American sentiment, he killed them," Shoebat rejoiced. "He had no tolerance for evil and wicked people. He got rid of them and he purged the society of these pagan heathens and he did an American Inquisition and that's what we need now ... Homosexuality? Death penalty. Blasphemy? Should be punished. Pagans coming in to your land? Kill the pagans, defeat them, convert the to Christianity."

"I'm more American than you," Shoebat declared. "Back in the day, just 100 years ago or so, 200 years ago, the American people 100 percent would have agreed with me. The Founding Fathers would have agreed with me."

Campaign Urges KY Gov. Matt Bevin To 'Nullify' The Supreme Court's Gay Marriage Decision

Today, Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission sent out an email to activists announcing a new campaign aimed at urging state legislatures to "nullify" the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision, beginning with "a national radio spot targeting the newly-elected Governor of Kentucky, Matt Bevin." 

"Nullification" is the fringe idea that states have the right to annul federal directives that they believe are unconstitutional and/or unbiblical and the radio ad compares resisting the gay marriage ruling to fighting the 1798 Alien and Sedition Acts, calling on Kentucky to take the lead in nullifying "the rogue Supreme Court opinion": 

Congratulations Matt Bevin on being elected governor of Kentucky and for standing up for marriage. Over 74% of Kentucky voters affirmed that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, but the U.S. Supreme Court created legal chaos by issuing an unconstitutional opinion. We need principled leadership now.

It was the brave Kentucky legislature that acted first when Congress passed the notorious Alien and Sedition Acts, depriving Americans for their First Amendment right to criticize their government. The famous Kentucky Resolutions declared the unconstitutional acts void and of no force. Other states followed suit, but Kentucky will forever have the honor of being the first state to legally check an abuse of power by the federal government.

Governor Bevin, we need Kentucky to once again lead the nation. Contact Governor Bevin and urge him to protect marriage and nullify the rogue Supreme Court opinion. Visit NullifyIt.com or call (502) 564-2611.

David Barton's Sidekick Launches Another Bid For A Seat On The Texas Supreme Court

Back in 2010, Rick Green, a former right-wing Texas state legislator turned David Barton's sidekick at WallBuilders, made a run for a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, only to lose in a run-off for the GOP nomination amid worries about his controversial history. Since then, Green has continued to serve as co-host of the daily "WallBuilders Live" radio program alongside Barton, while producing his own Bartonesque presentations on American history

Today, Green announced in an email that he will once again be seeking a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, not because he wants to but because so many people have practically begged him to run:

For months I've been approached by conservative leaders across Texas and asked to consider running for Texas Supreme Court.

Honestly, I wasn't very excited about it at first. I have a fantastic job and my family is loving the opportunity we have to live out the liberty that we are given. My family has been blessed with opportunities to travel across the country and teach Americans about the Constitution and our founding fathers. It doesn't get much better than that.

But as the calls continued, my children started reminding me of the principle I have taught them: that every generation is in desperate need of leaders willing to sacrifice convenience for the sake of liberty.

Today we have a Supreme Court, both nationally and at times in Texas, which has ignored the rule of law, has trampled on marriage and has refused to stand for the very freedom upon which our nation was founded.

The deliberate violation of separation of powers is a threat to the liberty we all cherish. It’s time to put a constitutional watchdog on the Supreme Court.

I am answering the call today with my family by my side, excited about the challenge and opportunity ahead. I NEED your support.

In a video announcing his candidacy, Green says that he does not even want to run for this office but simply must because "several months ago, our Texas Supreme Court handed down a decision that ignored our Texas constitutional definition of marriage." As such, Green says he feels obligated to run in order to replace one of the justices who supported that position:

For the record, the Texas Supreme Court never struck down the state's anti-gay marriage amendment, but did decline to prevent a lesbian couple who have gotten married in Massachusetts from getting divorced in Texas and that seems to the case that so outraged Green that he had no choice but to launch a bid for a seat on the court.

Bryan Fischer: Don't Just Ban Muslim Immigration, Pay Muslims Who Are Already Here To Leave

As we noted yesterday, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer was years ahead of Donald Trump in calling for a ban on Muslim immigration to America, so he naturally took a bit of a victory lap on his radio program today in light of the fact that his radical position is now being championed by the Republican presidential frontrunner.

But Fischer took his position a step further, insisting that it is not enough to simply ban Muslims from entering the country and so the government should actually be paying Muslims who are already here to leave.

"Let's use American resources to help these people find a home in the Muslim world," Fischer said. "I suggest that we assist Muslims in America with repatriation costs. Let's help them find a home in the Muslim world. They can live in a place that shares the values, that shares their religious principles, that shares their religious practice, that shares their cultural customs. They can be at home, don't have to chafe against our religious liberty, don't have to chafe against our Judeo-Christian values system. They can be at home and I believe we ought to be content to use our resources to help them get there."

Over 100 Young Elected Officials Call for Clean Energy Reforms

Today at the Paris 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more than 300 state and local lawmakers from across the country, including over 100 members of People For the American Way Foundation’s Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network, are releasing a letter in support of achieving 50 percent clean energy by 2030 and calling for action in support of this goal. The letter notes that local communities represented by the signers are experiencing the impact of extreme weather events and environmental harms, and that cities and states are already leading the way toward clean energy solutions.

YEO alum Dominic Frongillo, a former town councilman in Caroline, NY, is expected to present the letter to President Obama at the climate talks.

The full text of the letter is pasted below.

Dear President Obama,

We, the undersigned local and state elected officials, strongly support the goal to achieve more than 50 percent clean energy by 2030, putting us on the path to 100 percent clean energy sources by 2050.

This is a necessary and achievable goal. With the implementation of the Clean Power Plan, the EPA estimates that the United States will increase our current generation of clean energy by 30 percent. This means we are already on track to generate 43 percent clean energy by 2030 by effectively implementing the Obama Administration’s policies. We appreciate the administration’s leadership supporting clean energy — and with additional leadership at the federal, state, and local levels, our country will successfully reach the 50 percent by 2030 goal.

Clean energy is an American success story. It is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the United States and already provides 360,000 jobs. The solar industry alone employs 143,000 people—more individuals than work in coal mines — and grew 20 percent in 2014. Last year a new solar project was installed every 2.5 minutes.

Transitioning to clean energy isn’t just the smart choice for growing our economy—it keeps our families healthy. According to the American Lung Association, almost half of Americans live in places where pollution levels are too often dangerous to breathe. By transitioning to clean energy, we can clear the air and reduce the health risks of pollution.

The time to act is now. Fourteen of the 15 warmest years on record have all occurred since 2000, and 2014 was the warmest ever recorded. Our communities are already feeling the growing costs of increased number of extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, droughts, and flooding. According to NOAA, the frequency of billion-dollar storm-related disasters has increased five percent each year since 1980.

In Paris, the United States and our global partners will offer concrete targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to prevent the most devastating impacts of climate change. However, true success in Paris — and in the days, weeks and months that follow — will come down to America’s willingness to build on the momentum from the UN talks and continue to lead the world by implementing clean energy solutions.

States, cities and businesses are already paving the way with clean energy solutions that are substantially and cost-effectively transitioning our country away from dirty fossil fuels and towards clean sources like wind and solar. As leaders responsible for America’s present and future prosperity, we must protect our communities from the dangers of climate change.

To ensure our economic prosperity, to protect our health and children, and to ensure our security and safety, we need to act now to transition our country to more than 50 percent clean energy by 2030.

Very Respectfully,

Signed by over 300 state and local lawmakers from across the United States.

Jan Markell: Getting Our YouTube Page Shut Down Is Just Like Nazi Germany

Last month, the End Times radio host Jan Markell saw her YouTube channel get shut down for supposedly violating YouTube's terms of service. Her channel was quickly restored once the right-wing news site WorldNetDaily reported on it, with YouTube admitting that Markell's channel had "been removed mistakenly."

Markell, of course, is not convinced that this was a simple mistake on the part of YouTube because she's pretty sure that it is really a sign that anti-Christian Nazism is spreading over America.

Saying that godless leftists are in control of everything from YouTube to Facebook and are working to persecute Christians, Markell warned in an email to supporters today that her trouble with YouTube is "harbinger of things to come. Fascism starts slowly. It did in Nazi Germany and it has here":

[O]n Saturday, November 28, all of Olive Tree's YouTubes were shut down due to "inappropriate content."  We had had a warning or two starting two weeks earlier. But mid-day on November 28 all the lights were turned off.

After an inquiry by World Net Daily, the lights came back on. They were confronted by a powerhouse and YouTube, owned by Google, said it was all a mistake, but that would have been 2-3 weeks of mistakes on their part.

In Nazi Germany, Germans in the early 1930s were promised a return to the "glory days" after the devastation of WWI. Government then started to paint a picture of the good life returning, but only if government could become their god.

The Germans thought that was a great idea. They hung onto every promise of "hope and change." They simply had no idea that Hitler's "hope and change" would cause the swastika to be burned across the very fabric of Europe. Once it began to be burned, they looked the other way as the "good life" was going to return for them -- or so they thought. Hope and change agents always promise utopia.

There are haunting comparisons in America to Nazi Germany.  It's easy to get comfortable with government.  Human nature wants to be taken care of. It's easy to let compromise gradually turn into tyranny and that's a frog-in-the-kettle phenomenon. It never happens overnight.

Of course, we have had our YouTube account shut down on multiple occasions, which rather undermines her conspiracy theory.

Cliff Kincaid: Obama Is 'Mentally Ill' Due To Past Pot Use And Must Be Impeached

Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid is calling upon Congress to impeach President Obama and remove him from office on the grounds that he is currently mentally incompetent due to excessive use of marijuana when he was younger.

In a piece logically titled "Is Our Stoner President Mentally Impaired?," Kincaid asserts that Congress must begin the process of "removing Obama from office because of cognitive impairment" as "he is so affected by previous drug use that he is just not capable of comprehending reality": 

Obama is, presumably, not smoking marijuana in the White House. But he talks and acts as if he is still under the influence. Indeed, the long-term impact of the weed on his intellectual processes is a subject of concern. David Maraniss, author of a book on Obama, notes that the word “choom,” taken from “Choom Gang,” means to smoke marijuana. He said Obama “started a few pot-smoking trends,” suggesting the future president understood ways to make the “high” from the drug even more powerful and lasting. One method they used was to smoke dope in a car and then inhale or suck in what was left of the smoke in the ceiling of the car.

What Maraniss leaves out of his book on Obama is the role played by Obama’s mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis, another dope smoker who probably gave the young Barry some tips on inhaling the drug for full effect. Davis, a pedophile, probably also taught young Barry about experimenting with sex.

It is worth recalling that when he ran for office, Obama refused to release his complete medical records. Instead, a sympathetic doctor merely released a 276-word “summary,” claiming he was in excellent health.

...

If Congress doesn’t want to find Obama guilty of having an ideology that explains his sympathy for radical Islam and disqualifies his continued service as President, the only alternative is to diagnose his medical condition with public hearings and conclude that he has lost touch with reality and is mentally ill. A Congressional Research Service study cites evidence that section four of the 25th amendment is designed for “a sick president who refuses or is unable to confront his disability,” or “a president who is disabled but unwilling to step aside.”

This section is complicated, but it explicitly allows for Congress to establish a committee or another body to review the president’s disability and recommend his removal from office. It refers to several ways the president can be removed, including through a body “as Congress may by law provide.” This would begin the process of congressional action.

The main objection will be that using Obama’s dope-smoking days against him is going back too far in his life to justify his removal from office. But many observers see that something is seriously wrong with this President’s approach to his job. Blaming his performance on the lingering effects of the heavy use of illegal drugs makes as much sense as any other explanation at this point.

Indeed, with impeachment on ideological grounds off the table, it is within the jurisdiction of Congress to decide that Obama has done enough damage to the nation and the world and that he must go. Since Obama seems to be AWOL in the War on Terror, dereliction of duty by Congress in this case would only increase the danger and risk to the nation.

Ted Cruz's Campaign Insists He's Not A 'Gay Basher,' But He Has No Problem Embracing Those Who Are

Ted Cruz's presidential campaign has been openly contemptuous and downright dismissive of anyone who has tried to get the Republican presidential hopeful to explain why he spoke at a conference last month organized and hosted by extremist pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson.

On multiple occasions prior the conference, and twice during the conference itself, Swanson explicitly endorsed the idea of imposing the death penalty for homosexuality, yet the Cruz campaign has cavalierly waved away questions about his appearance along side Swanson at his conference, insisting that Cruz is not some sort of "gay basher":

Recently two left-wing media mainstays, MSNBC and The Daily Beast went after Cruz’s appearance at a religious freedom conference that he and two other candidates were invited to. The two liberal organizations played a video clip from another extreme left group, People for the American Way’s RightWingWatch, and imagined the conference a “kill the gays” event.

Cruz’s response to their misrepresentations was simple. He elected not to respond, “acknowledge or take their bait,” the staffer explained. “We’ve seen their follow up attempts and accusations to place Cruz into their definition of gay bashers, but that’s not even close to who he is. You have to look at his record and history, not what the left wants him to be.”

Cruz's refusal to denounce Swanson and his views is rather interesting, especially since Swanson himself has no trouble denouncing anyone who does not share his "kill the gays" views.

For instance, on a radio program from March of this year, Swanson criticized Bob Jones III for daring to apologize for comments he made 35 years ago advocating that gays be stoned to death.

"As far as I know," Swanson said, "the Apostle Paul has not backtracked on Romans 1, in which he refers to the unnatural relation between males and males, females and females, and says such who does these things are worthy of death ... I'm going to be the last guy who stands up and says whatever Paul was saying when he said they're worthy of death, whatever Moses is saying in Leviticus 20:13 as communicated to God's people as the very law God, from the lips of God himself, I'm going to be the last person to say, well, God's law is unjust. And if anybody wants to say that, I'm going to be standing about 40 feet away, whatever the diameter of lightening is."

Later in that same broadcast, Swanson took issue with those who get outraged at the prospect of the government putting people to death for homosexuality, saying that it is no big deal when compared to the prospect of gay people spending eternity in Hell.

"When people focus on the civil penalty for the sin of homosexuality," he said, "they're diverting attention from the real issue, and that is the judgment of God upon that behavior ... Capital punishment? Execution at the hands of the state? Big deal! Big deal! That's nothing. That's nothing. In comparison with the judgment of God, the judgment of the civil courts, of the human courts, as compared to the judgement of Almighty God? No comparison!"

If Cruz wants to prove that he is not one of those "gay bashers," denouncing Swanson and his rhetoric would be an easy way for him to do so. But so far, Cruz and his campaign have conspicuously refused to that while touting the endorsements of several other anti-gay extremists ... and that speaks volumes. 

For Glenn Beck, Everything Seems Like A Conspiracy When You Can't Do Basic Research

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck and his cohost Pat Gray alleged that there was some sort of conspiracy afoot to scrub the internet of evidence of White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitting that stronger background checks would not have prevented this week's terrorist shooting in San Bernardino, California.

Asked by ABC News' Jonathan Karl whether there is any evidence that expanded background checks would have prevented the attack, Earnest stated that, "In this instance, of course not."

Beck wanted to play audio of that exchange on his program today but Gray was unable to locate it ... which naturally can only mean that there some White House cover-up at work.

"It's interesting," Gray said, "because there's no, I can't find a single piece of audio on that. It's all printed. And every time this guy says something this butt stupid, that's the case. I don't know if they scrub the internet of the audio, of the video, because every White House press conference is recorded, right? They're all recorded."

"And yet you can't get any audio of that," Beck responded. "That's really [interesting]."

If there was a single person on Beck's team who was capable of doing five minutes of basic research, they could have found this crucial piece of audio in the video of the press briefing posted on the White House's YouTube page:

Note to Beck and friends: your inability to do basic research is not evidence of a massive cover-up.

UPDATE: Later in the radio broadcast, Gray did manage to track down and play this piece of audio. We had not yet listened to that part of the broadcast at the time that this post was written. That doesn't, of course, change the fact that Beck and Gray both initially blamed a cover-up for their own inability to find it. 

Alex McFarland Says God Didn't Prevent California Shooting Because Of Abortion And Gay Marriage

Right-wing Christian apologist Alex McFarland was on Dove TV's "Focus Today" program yesterday to discuss the terrorist shooting in San Bernardino, California, earlier this week, which he blamed on abortion and gay marriage.

"People are saying, 'Why didn't God prevent this?'" McFarland stated, "Look, we've for 45 years told God to leave us alone. Fifty-seven to sixty million babies aborted, now our Supreme Court has deviated from natural law to case law and we've redefined marriage ... God forgive us for the murder of the unborn, God forgive us for kicking prayer out of public schools, God forgive us for making sodomy mainstream and redefining marriage."

"The greatest sin of all is abortion in our nation," he continued, "and the judgment of God only escalate until we turn to the Lord."

Later, McFarland declared that President Obama supposedly refuses to fight radical Islam because he is secretly a Muslim.

"In my heart, I'm going to be honest with you, I suspect he is a Muslim," McFarland said. "I really do."

Glenn Beck: Obama Is Either Delusional Or 'The Dumbest Son-Of-A-Bitch On The Planet'

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today by reading a long rant that he posted on his Facebook page last night voicing his disgust at the "PC coverup" of the fact that yesterday's mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, was an obvious act of Islamic terrorism.

Naturally, Beck eventually focused his rant on President Obama, calling him either delusional or "the dumbest son-of-a-bitch on the planet."

"Mr. President, I say this with as much respect as you deserve," Beck declared. "Screw global warming! What the hell is wrong with you? If you actually believe that global warming is the biggest problem we face with terror all around the world, an $18 trillion dollar debt — nine of which is yours — no real allies left that trust us, riots in the streets, riots in our university campuses, race relations worse than I've seen since the 1960s and a distrust of our fellow Americans unlike anything I have ever seen, you, sir, are either delusional or you're the dumbest son-of-a-bitch on the planet. Which is it?"

"It is about Islam," Beck fumed. "So was Boston. So was Benghazi. So was Fort Hood. So was half a dozen others that you failed to address, and quite frankly, sir, so was 'Ahmed the Clock Kid.' It was a timer and not a clock."

Leading Dominionist Says Donald Trump Is A Modern-Day Lincoln Anointed By God

Last month, we noted that leading Seven Mountains advocate Lance Wallnau was included among the fringe religious leaders who met with and prayed over Donald Trump earlier this year.

Wallnau, who claims that conservative Christians must seize control of the "seven mountains" of society, including the government and the media, has since become an enthusiastic supporter of Trump's presidential campaign, declaring that "God has given this man an anointing for the mantle of government in the United States and he will prosper!"

Interestingly, he also participated in the meeting Trump had earlier this week with a group of African American pastors, where he hailed Trump as a modern-day Winston Churchill or Abraham Lincoln who God is raising up "to answer the cry of God's people."

In a rather manic video posted on his Facebook page following the meeting, Wallnau recounted telling Trump that he would become the 45th president of the United States because he has a "Cyrus anointing" upon him as proclaimed in Isaiah 45, referring to the Persian king who freed the Jews from captivity.

"Donald Trump's got this like Elijah mantle on him," Wallnau said. "He's got the Cyrus anointing."

Citing the apocryphal story of George Washington supposedly surviving in battle despite his coat and hat being riddled with bullet holes thanks to the protection of God, Wallnau told Trump that he too is being protected by God.

"You've said things and done things that should have put the equivalent of a bullet in your coat," Wallnau said that he told Trump, "but they've passed through you because of the anointing. God is really watching over you. And I believe God had put His hand on you as a Cyrus to be a governor and that the Bible talks about this critical 45th chapter, as the 45th president, it is the decisive moment in American history for leadership."

Admitting that Trump is not perfect, Wallnau declared that "America is screwed up" and so a "flawed man" like Trump is exactly what this nation needs "because it means it is going to be God's grace on him."

Trump is "like a Churchill or a Lincoln," Wallnau said, who has been "called to rise up in a crisis and to answer the cry of God's people."

Ted Cruz Endorser Flip Benham Says Gay Activists Are 'The Most Violent Community There Is ... They Want You Dead'

Last month, Ted Cruz's presidential campaign proudly announced that the Texas senator had received the endorsement of Flip Benham, the radical anti-choice and anti-gay founder of Operation Save America. Given Cruz's willingness to openly associate with the extreme fringes of the conservative movement, we have been taking a closer look at just whom Cruz is embracing and going through recent speeches that some of his supporters have made, like the remarks that Benham delivered in Louisiana last year.

Speaking to an Operation Save America pastors' briefing in New Orleans last June, Benham blasted HGTV for cancelling a reality show that was to be hosted by his sons David and Jason after their anti-choice and anti-gay activism came to light.

"That station, HGTV is 'Homosexual Garbage Television,'" Benham declared. "You've got to know that that's trash ...  I mean, the homosexual community came after them with a vengeance. You see, the homosexual community doesn't want to just get you fired or something like that, they want to destroy you! They want to destroy everything because inside of them, their heart is raging against the Lord and they can't ever get satisfied because God thwarts the cravings of the wicked. And you understand that's the most violent community there is, is the homosexual community. They want you dead! I'm guaranteeing you they want you dead!"

This is someone whom Cruz is "excited" to have supporting his campaign. 

John Zmirak: 'If Terrorism And Violence Become An Issue In The Abortion Debate,' Pro-Choice Activists Will Be To Blame

Conservative radio host Trey Ware guest-hosted this week's "Hagee Hotline," where he interviewed Stream.org contributing senior editor John Zmirak for a discussion about the deadly shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood facility.

Zmirak dismissed the idea that the perpetrator of this attack was a Christian or an anti-abortion activist, insisting that the shooting was carried out by a mentally unstable person for unknown reasons. He backed-up this assertion by arguing that no true Christian would ever commit this sort of violence because doing so would be "an act of civil war" and "we're not ready to do that" ... though such a war may, in fact, be coming. 

"Not every evil can be fought by war," Zmirak said, "and shooting doctors when their activity is unfortunately legal would amount to an act of civil war. Christians would have to declare civil war in America and we're not ready to do that."

Insisting that there are legal and peaceful means for anti-choice activists to use in their effort to outlaw abortion, Zmirak compared such efforts to abolitionists who worked to end slavery. The fight over slavery, of course, eventually resulted in exactly the sort of civil war that Zmirak said anti-choice Christians would never support, so logically he insisted that if such a war does start, it will be entirely the fault of pro-choice activists.

"It was the slave-owners who started the Civil War," Zmirak stated, "and I think if terrorism and violence become an issue in the abortion debate, it will be the pro-choicers attacking pro-lifers and attacking churches."

Glenn Beck's Newest Conspiracy Theory: Donald Trump's Campaign Is A Plot To Elect Hillary Clinton

Glenn Beck dedicated an entire segment of his radio program today to absolutely excoriating Donald Trump for mocking a New York Times reporter with a disability last week and then laughably trying to deny that he had done so. After repeatedly blasting Trump, Beck eventually began to speculate that the business mogul's entire presidential campaign is part of some secret deal to help Hillary Clinton get elected to the White House.

After pointing out that pretty much all of Trump's stated positions make no sense and often directly contradict his previously stated views, Beck concluded that is is "more logical" to conclude that Trump is running for president in order to launch a third party campaign for the purpose of undermining the Republican Party and benefiting of Hillary Clinton.

"What are the odds that he is a spoiler?" Beck asked. "What are the odds that he got into this because he's friend with the Clintons and he'll get massive payback? If Hillary Clinton gets in because he ran third party, do you know the favor they're going to owe him?"

"It makes no sense otherwise," Beck insisted, asserting that "it's more logical to believe that" scenario than the idea that Trump is actually a Republican or even someone who cares about the issues. 

This new theory, of course, somewhat conflicts with Beck's previous theory that Trump's campaign was a conspiracy designed by "big business" to destroy the Tea Party. 

Rick Joyner: The New England Patriots 2014 Super Bowl Championship Was A Message From God

On his most recent "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner once again claimed that God personally told him that the New England Patriots would win the Super Bowl last year and that it was going to be a supernatural sign that patriotism would "become really popular again."

Joyner was discussing the Republican primary race and explaining that while he currently supports Donald Trump, that could change "if the Lord really speaks to me," which He does quite regularly, like when God told Joyner at the start of the 2014 NFL season that the Patriots would win the Super Bowl. 

"Way in the beginning of last football season, the Lord showed me the New England Patriots were going to win the Super Bowl," Joyner said. "He showed me why and I didn't like his reasons ... I wanted the Carolina Panthers to win the Super Bowl, but the Lord said, 'No, the New England Patriots are going to win again this year.'"

"He showed me that early in the season," Joyner continued, "and then He told me not to give up on our Panthers either. Does the Lord care about football? Yeah. I promise you, He does. He does because we do. If we didn't, He wouldn't care about it, but because His people do, He does care. I don't believe He picks winners unfairly, unless He does like He did last year to give us a message. And that message was, He said, 'The Patriots are going to win and it is going to be a message that patriotism is going to win.' I believe you're going to see patriotism becoming really popular again."

Mat Staver: Obama Bringing In Refugees Because He 'Has No Love For This Country'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver declared that President Obama is bringing in Syrian refugees because he "has no love for this country" and wants to undermine and destroy America.

Staver and cohost Matt Barber were ostensibly discussing last month's terrorist attacks in Paris, though most of the discussion was aimed at attacking Obama for bringing Syrian refugees into America, which Staver insisted is going to lead to a Paris-like tragedy here as well. 

Barber was at a loss to understand Obama's desire to "bring in potential ISIS terrorists by the thousands," wondering if it is sheer incompetence or something he is doing intentionally. 

"It's not incompetence," responded Staver. "It's intentional. This person that occupies the White House has no love for this country and, in fact, does so many things to undermine the moral, the unity and the security of this country. It's absolutely unbelievable. If he were someone else, the media would be all over him, but he gets away with all this because they don't hold him accountable. Frankly, this particular president, his legacy will be that he has weakened America and that he is making us vulnerable to some serious attacks."

Barber agreed, declaring that if any sort of terrorist attack occurs in America on Obama's watch, "he will have blood on his hands and there's a word for that and that word is 'treason.'"
