Anne Paulk: Teenagers Confuse A 'Bromance' Or 'Guy Crush' With Being Gay

Ex-gay activist Anne Paulk appeared today on “Family Talk,” where she told hosts James Dobson and Meg Meeker that parents should be skeptical when a teenage child comes out of the closet.

She advised parents to question their kids by asking questions like: “Why do you think that you are gay? What is happening in your life, son or daughter, that makes you think that you might be gay? Do you think maybe that you might be considering admiration of another person of the same gender and thinking you’re confused by what are normal crushes, guy crushes I think they call them nowadays, bromance or whatever?”

Paulk also warned that “there is a huge machine in public education” that instills kids with a “gay identity, and it’s just not fair to the individual.”

“Let’s be honest though, Anne, a revelation like that would scare most parents to death,” Dobson added. “They suck air trying to take that in and trying to stay rational at that moment is pretty tough.”

Ironically, Dobson’s Family Talk is using the broadcast to promote the book “Love Won Out” that Paulk authored with her ex-husband John Paulk, who now identifies as gay and strongly denounced the ex-gay movement.

Dobson added that there are “enticements” for young people to be gay these days and so they “don’t hear the other side” from anti-gay folks like himself. “My goodness they get trapped!”

“It’s almost politically correct to be homosexual or gay,” Dobson said. “You’re a hero by declaring that you’re gay,” Paulk replied, pointing to Michael Sam. “He became an overnight hero in many circles simply for saying ‘I’m gay.’ That’s our culture today.”

She then said the gay community doesn’t let people leave: “Once in, you’re not allowed out.”

Alex McFarland: God Punishing America With Obama Presidency, Gay Rights And Immigration

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer hosted Alex McFarland on Friday’s edition of “Focal Point,” where McFarland claimed that President Obama, gay marriage, and immigration are all judgments of God upon America.

“Here in America we have chosen new gods and we are being judged,” he said, citing the Book of Judges. “All of the chaos we’re seeing is the beginning of judgments,” he said.

McFarland was promoting his upcoming conference featuring speakers such as conservative activist Ben Carson, pseudo-historian David Barton, AFA head Tim Wildmon, and Fox News commentator Todd Starnes.

Janet Porter: Boycott Target For Its 'Corruption Of Marriage'

Not only is Janet Porter calling on conservatives to ditch Facebook and join her non-operational website ReaganBook, she is now pushing the Religious Right boycott of Target after the company announced its support for marriage equality.

“Target takes aim at natural marriage,” Porter said today in her daily radio commentary. “They are using your hard-earned shopping dollars to stand for counterfeit marriage.”

“I called Target to let them know I won’t be shopping there anymore until they reverse their policy on the corruption of marriage, and you can too…. Stand for marriage by boycotting Target.”

Paul Vallely Joins Pat Robertson To Call For Obama's Removal From Office

Paul Vallely, the conservative activist and former general who said he would lead a coup against President Obama, appeared today on “The 700 Club” to once again call for Obama’s removal through impeachment or other means.

While speaking with host Pat Robertson, Vallely called for “divine intervention” and demanded that Congress oust Obama and his national security team for pushing America down the road of “national suicide.”

“All of them need to go, they need to be replaced immediately,” he said. “Unfortunately in our Constitution we can only do impeachment, but we are generating what we call a ‘no confidence resolution’ in Congress this week that hopefully will lead to impeachment because we cannot let this regime in Washington continue to take us over the cliff.”

Robertson, who has prayed for God to remove Obama from office, told Vallely at the end of the interview that he “couldn’t agree with you more.”

John Fleming: Obama Dividing Americans By Race 'Just To Have Political Power'

Rep. John Fleming appeared on Friday’s edition of “The Janet Mefferd Show,” where he warned that immigrants are refusing to integrate into American culture and becoming “dependents on our entitlement system.”

The Louisiana Republican spoke with guest host Randy Thomasson, the head of Save California, echoed recent remarks by his Republican colleague Mo Brooks about how Obama and Democrats are fomenting racial animosity: “Our president promised that there wouldn’t be such things as black Americans and white Americans, just Americans, but his policies have actually divided us and multi-divided us in so many ways just to have political power.”

Tom Tancredo: 'Join A Militia' If Republicans Don't Impeach Obama

Former congressman Tom Tancredo once again called on House Republicans to vote to impeach President Obama, writing this weekend in WorldNetDaily that the GOP should “call the White House’s bluff and proceed with impeachment.”

He warns that if Republicans are “afraid to challenge presumptuous dictatorial behavior,” then “the war is already lost and we should all stock our ammunition shelves and join a militia.”

Sometimes the arrogance of the Obama White House offers a gift that is really a Trojan Horse. But sometimes, the Obama hubris presents us a piñata full of unexpected treats. Which is it this time with the impeachment question?

Obama is daring the nation to impeach him. Is this a Trojan Horse or a piñata?



The only political question to be answered is not whether Obama will do it but how Republicans will respond. Even many in the Democratic establishment are admitting that general amnesty by edict is unconstitutional and, as such, is an impeachable offense. The Republican establishment – and the conservative establishment as well – is virtually unanimous in saying, yes, it is an impeachable offense, but it is a trap, so we must not talk about impeachment.

That argument is tantamount to saying that even if Obama burned the American flag on the White House lawn, we must look the other way and pretend it is a summer picnic because the Democratic base might get offended.

What is being recommended in the name of smart politics by the Charles Krauthammers and Karl Roves of the world is a gag order on impeachment talk in the face of blatant impeachable behavior. According to this line of thinking, talking about impeachment now is stupid politically, but we can talk about it later after we win a U.S. Senate majority in November. Anyone who believes that line will shell out big bucks for a resort honeymoon on Mars in a heartbeat.

We are no longer debating what is an impeachable offense; we are being asked to look away and pretend the Constitution is not being shredded. Our answer must be: Sorry, but that is not something allowed by the genetic code of patriots.

The truth is impeachment will NEVER be the safest course or the smartest course for the political establishment, but it is the necessary course for the survival of the U.S. Constitution even if ultimately rejected by the U.S. Senate after a fair trial. We must make the case for impeachment to demonstrate that no man is above the law, not even the first black president. If we do not make that case, we are betraying the Constitution and degrading our children’s inheritance.

If we go down the road of “not now but maybe later” when Obama is arrogantly daring us by openly engaging in clearly unconstitutional acts, when will it ever by “smart politics” to threaten impeachment against unconstitutional acts by any future president? Impeachment will always be “off the table.”

There is an additional reason we must call Obama’s bluff on impeachment. The time is now, not later, to accept the challenge presented by the threat to “energize the Democratic base.” Are we really that afraid that the Democrat base can be rallied in support of blatantly unconstitutional acts but that the Republican base cannot be motivated and energized to respond in kind? Are we really that afraid to challenge presumptuous dictatorial behavior? If so, then the war is already lost and we should all stock our ammunition shelves and join a militia.

Larry Klayman: Obama Wants 'Affirmative Action' For 'Muslim Terrorists'

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman warned on Friday that President Obama and his allies “have created a new type of affirmative action where Muslim terrorists have more rights than our own military and our country as a whole,” arguing that the “Mullah in Chief” is siding with terrorists.

“The situation has reached an intolerable point, and it is time to either impeach Obama or find some other legal means to rid the nation of his treasonous and harmful ways,” he wrote in WorldNetDaily.

“Obama must now be held legally accountable for his treason, either through impeachment or some other legal means. The nation finally must be rid of this tyrant, who allows our own best and brightest to be sacrificed at the altar of his Muslim roots and sympathies.”

President Barack Hussein Obama, who is the head of the armed forces, has not only threatened Israel that U.S. aid would be cut off if it does not make peace with Hamas in light of Muslim civilian casualties in Gaza – thus preventing Israel from ridding the Middle East of this Muslim terrorist scourge by forcing a cease-fire amid similar threats by the United Nations and its compromised secretary general, Ban Ki-moon – but, true to past history, he and his secretary of state, John Kerry, also have refused to admit that the Afghan Muslim military is as much a threat to U.S. troops as the Taliban itself. This is because both Obama and Kerry lean heavily in favor of Muslim interests, not just with regard to Israel but our nation as well. For the commander in chief or even the secretary of state not to even make mention of the assassination of this general until well after the fact shows that he continues to be unwilling to admit that we are in a war with radical Islam. Of course, the answer for this is obvious. Obama, the “first Muslim president,” himself sympathizes not with the U.S. military, but those who oppose our efforts to rid the world of Muslim terrorism.



The situation has reached an intolerable point, and it is time to either impeach Obama or find some other legal means to rid the nation of his treasonous and harmful ways. It is one thing to stop Israel from eliminating Hamas on the basis that the Jewish state correctly waged war by not becoming fixated on casualties among those Muslims the terrorist group uses as human shields to do their bidding, but it’s quite another thing to sacrifice our own for Obama’s Muslim sympathies. After all, it was these Muslim civilians who voted Hamas into power in Gaza. They must now bear the consequences, as we Americans must bear the consequences for voting the Mullah in Chief into power in our nation.

Thus, in the world of war against radical Islam, Obama and his comrades, like Kerry and the U.N.’s Ban, have created a new type of affirmative action where Muslim terrorists have more rights than our own military and our country as a whole.

Obama must now be held legally accountable for his treason, either through impeachment or some other legal means. The nation finally must be rid of this tyrant, who allows our own best and brightest to be sacrificed at the altar of his Muslim roots and sympathies.

Sandy Rios: Parents Failing To Protect Children From 'Authoritarian Regime' Of Public Schools

Another day, another example of the Religious Right’s persecution complex. On today’s edition of “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” listeners heard the sad tale of Laurie Higgins,  a cultural analyst at the American Family Association-affiliated Illinois Family Institute, who spoke of the “liberal intolerance” and “persecution” she encountered in her previous work as a high school administrator.

Higgins described how she was demoted and shunned by her colleagues because she spoke out against “pro-homosexual resources,” like “Angels in America,” being available to students in the school library. She was also frustrated by the school’s “complete unwillingness” to include resources on LGBT issues that offered “opposing views.”

Rios and Higgins were shocked that no parents, teachers, or pastors came out in support of her or “dared to stand up for their own faith” in fear of the “authoritarian regime” of the school system.

“The halcyon days of being Christian in America are over,” warned Higgins.

In anticipation of the oppression ahead, Higgins advised: “Churches need to do a better job of preparing Christians to endure persecution, because it’s coming.” In her view, if parents and pastors aren’t actively driving LGBT books out of every school library, they “aren’t willing to suffer for Christ.” 

Paranoia-Rama: Democratic War On Whites, Cliven Bundy's Divine Standoff & Ebola vs Gays

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

Anti-gay activists seem rather convinced that they are facing Nazi and Jim Crow-style oppression, while one Religious Right commentator hopes that Ebola will free them from gay persecution by “solving America’s problem” with homosexuality.

5) Gays Are The New Bull Connor

The Religious Right campaign to claim that they are facing horrendous, unspeakable persecution keeps getting more pathetic this week.

RedState blogger Erick Erickson, for one, is pretty sure that gay rights advocates want to transform America into a “society bent on suicide,” and have apparently adopted “the tactics of Bull Connor” to push their destructive agenda.

After channeling Bryan Fischer and Brian Brown in framing Christians in the U.S. as the victims of a new Jim Crow, the Georgia-based activist went on to say that American Christians will face dire persecution at the hands of gays: “a faith that survived its followers being used as torches to light the streets of Rome will survive a modern age hell bent on ruthlessly stamping it out.”

That wasn’t the only sad persecution article written this week, with Scott Lively writing that gays are treating Religious Right activists the same way the Nazis oppressed the Jews, and Bill Muehlenberg warning that “the cult of homosexualism” is the “coming world religion which will enslave the entire world.”

4) Michelle Nunn (And George H.W. Bush!) In With Islamic Terrorists

The pro-GOP group Ending Spending Action Fund is running a TV ad in Georgia blasting U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn for leading a foundation that “directed grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”

The advertisement refers to her time as CEO of the Points of Light Foundation, a group founded by former president George H.W. Bush.

Before Nunn even took the job, Points of Light ran a business called MissionFish that “allowed eBay sellers and buyers to direct all or part of the proceeds from a transaction to their favorite charity,” according to PolitiFact. One of the approximately 20,000 nonprofit organizations that eBay users directed proceeds to was Islamic Relief USA, a charitable group, which over a period of several years received $33,000 through the program.

Based on that damning evidence, Ending Spending’s advertisement accused Nunn of “directing grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”

Since Bush founded the Points of Light Foundation, we wonder if Ending Spending believes the former president is also implicated in terrorism.

3) Democrats Waging ‘War On Whites’

Rep. Mo Brooks thinks the reason the GOP has a problem attracting Latino voters is because of “the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party.” Democrats, the Alabama congressman claims, tell people of color “that whites hate everybody else” in order to win their votes.

Just in case you thought that might have been a gaffe, Brooks later claimed that federal law is discriminatory against white people: “What is the one race that can be discriminated against?… All whites.”

2) God Directed Cliven Bundy To Save America

The Obama administration was just about to start taking away everyone’s guns and forming a police state until Cliven Bundy stopped them! Well, that’s what happened according to Cliven Bundy, who recently told a meeting of the Independent American Party, a Third Party to the right of the GOP, that his standoff with the federal government over his refusal to pay grazing fees was part of a spiritual battle against government tyranny:

"If the standoff with the Bundys was wrong, would the Lord have been with us?" Bundy asked, noting that no one was killed as tensions escalated. "Could those people that stood without fear and went through that spiritual experience … have done that without the Lord being there? No they couldn't."

Bundy also cited personal inspiration from God in establishing his course of action.

"The Lord told me ... if (the sheriff doesn't) take away these arms (from federal agents), we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, 'This is your chance to straighten this thing up,'" Bundy said.

In a radio interview this week, Bundy was even more explicit: “I have no idea what God wants done, but he did inspire me to have the sheriffs across the United States take away these weapons, disarm these bureaucracies, and he also gave me a little inspiration on what would happen if they didn’t do that…. It was indicated that ‘this is our chance, America, to straighten this problem up. If we don’t solve this problem this way, we will face these same guns in a civil war.’”

1) Ebola: Good Or Bad?

Rick Wiles is afraid that the Ebola outbreak will not only leave people dead, but will also be used by President Obama to create an oppressive, totalitarian government. Obama, Wiles believes, may even try to spread Ebola by pushing defective vaccines.

But maybe, maybe, Ebola isn’t so bad, Wiles explains. The End Times radio host said on one program that “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

Bryan Fischer Agrees With ISIS That Yazidis Are Devil Worshipers And That's Why Obama Defends Them

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is outraged that the U.S. is intervening in Iraq to stop ISIS, who has been attacking Christians and other Muslims throughout the country.

Fischer believes that President Obama only intervened to stop the extermination of the Yazidis, who practice an ancient religion yet are considered by ISIS fighters and others to be “devil worshipers.” He began today’s edition of “Focal Point” by railing against Obama, saying the president only decided to launch airstrikes in Iraq in order to defend “devil worshipers.”

“They go after devil worshipers and all of the sudden the entire weight of the United States government is sent in there to relieve them and to avenge them,” he said. “Those are the Yazidis.”

Fischer added: “President Obama will fight for Satan worshipers but he will not fight for Christians.”

“In a rare point of theological accord, both Muslims and Christians agree that the archangel revered by the Yazidis is in fact the Prince of Darkness,” he writes in his column today. “The New Testament describes him this way, “Satan (who) disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14), eager to deceive the gullible into believing that he is good rather than evil. The Yazidis have fallen for his lies.”

The persecution of Christians and other minorities in Iraq began long before Obama took office, and Fischer relayed other right-wing myths about the Obama administration supposedly refusing to help people like pastor Saeed Abedini and Meriam Ibrahim.

The Christian Science Monitor explains:

Ethnically Kurds, the Yazidis' faith combines elements of Zoroastrianismfrom ancient Persia, Sufi Islam, Judaism and Christianity along with beliefs from ancient Mesopotamia. It’s a closed and still secretive religion – members have to be born into the faith and cannot marry outside of it.

Yazidis believe that God entrusted the world to seven angels – the chief angel known in earthly form as the peacock angel who refused to bow down before Adam. While Yazidis see it as proof of his devotion to God, the narrative’s parallels with the fallen angel have led some Muslims to accuse them of devil worship.

David Lane: Liberal 'Blitzkrieg' Imposed 'False God Of Secularism' On America

Likely Republican presidential candidates like Ted CruzBobby JindalMike Huckabee and Rand Paul are working to court Religious Right activist and American Renewal Project founder David Lane, who today wrote a column for BarbWire warning that “America has been hijacked, we are now living between Babel and the Beast.”

Lane writes that America’s troubles all go back to the “coordinated, deliberate, sustained effort, a blitzkrieg [of] imposing an intolerant and aggressive false religion on America — Secularism.”

“This false god of Secularism — embedded in public education by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963 — has glamorized, exalted and now normalized sin in America, creating a spiritually decadent, godless society,” he writes. “Proverbs instructs that easy sex and easy money are always the two temptations coming at the man — filth is everywhere.”

Lane warns that religious freedom will be lost if America does not return to the “Puritan worldview” of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, even though it actually crushed religious freedom and persecuted other Christians such as Quakers and Baptists.

In American education, liberal secularists have decoupled God/Jesus Christ from education, and have therefore eliminated the theological and epistemological foundation for knowledge: “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” The ramifications are significant because, in God’s economy, righteousness exalts a nation and an individual.

Virtue is required for sustainable freedom. Secularists have successfully removed the transmission agent (The Word of God) for the accumulation of wisdom and knowledge, which created freedom in America. The nation is now basically biblically illiterate. Let’s be clear, the secularists and their priests — i.e., public education, higher learning, Hollywood and Media elite — have a coordinated, deliberate, sustained effort, a blitzkrieg, imposing an intolerant and aggressive false religion on America — Secularism.

This false god of Secularism — embedded in public education by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963 — has glamorized, exalted and now normalized sin in America, creating a spiritually decadent, godless society. Proverbs instructs that easy sex and easy money are always the two temptations coming at the man — filth is everywhere. The deterrent for kids to resist temptation has been removed from public schools. Why would resisting the temptation for easy sex matter? Because, in God’s economy, righteousness exalts a nation and an individual. America has been hijacked, we are now living between Babel and the Beast.**



THE issue of the day from 1620 to 1770 was not abortion or homosexual marriage, it was religious liberty. Christianity has always been persecuted beginning in Acts 4 and throughout 2000 years of history. Only in America for the last 200 years have we Christians enjoyed Religious and Civil Liberty. Why are we the exception?

This is because of the tremendous influence that the Pilgrim and Puritanical worldview had on our political thinking in New England. Being free Englishmen holding devout Biblical worldviews, and believing that since God established civil government He would have a lot to say about it in the pages of Scripture, we have been given this exceptional country which believes that our rights come from God and not government and truth is not arbitrarily established by the King, but has been established by God — “the law of nature and nature’s God.” We Americans have only enjoyed liberty, so we don’t recognize how precious it is.

In order to establish a tyranny, the government must control the mind, in order to control the body. Therefore, they nationalize education, control the flow of information through the media, and must gain control of your conscience. That means no religious liberty. An atheistic communism (where since God doesn’t exist, government replaces God as the one who grants rights and determines truth) OR you have a theocracy (God and Government are one) and you come to the same end. In either way, you do not have a free conscious to defy the government as the government is supreme.

Coincidentally, the King’s threat to reestablish the Anglican church over the colonies was one of the last straws that led to our independence. Currently, you see our religious liberty under attack (no proselytizing in the military, Hobby Lobby case, judges mandating homosexual marriage, Christian bakers sued, etc.) The writing is on the wall.

Fortunately, the 18th Century church led the fight for liberty. What will the 21st Century church do? Will we be like the Black Robed Regiment of the 18th Century or will we be the church of Germany in 1935?

Kevin Swanson: Red Tyrant Abraham Lincoln Introduced Communism To America

On his radio show last month, Religious Right broadcaster Kevin Swanson hosted a neo-Confederate author to discuss how Abraham Lincoln used the Civil War — or as he called it, “The War Against The South” — to impose socialism on America.

Swanson is adding Lincoln to the list of people, such as Mark Twain, who he believes ruined the country by replacing Antebellum slavery with Big Government socialist slavery.

“It’s the socialist utopians that come into town and they promise deliverance from local fiefdoms only to create a large tyranny in the Soviet Union, Soviet America and Soviet China and Soviet everywhere else in the world,” he said.

Swanson spoke with Walter Kennedy, the author of books such as “Lincoln’s Marxists” and “Red Republicans and Lincoln’s Marxists: Marxism in the Civil War.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Kennedy as “a member of the hard core of the neo-Confederate movement” and “a founding member of the League of the South,” who has “called for a new Southern secession to escape the ‘overgrown and unresponsive’ federal government.” He also co-wrote a book entitled “The South Was Right!,” which defended Southern slavery.

In the interview with Swanson, Kennedy said that “radical socialists and communists” helped launch the Republican Party and put Lincoln in the White House, and then led “the prosecution of ‘The War Against the South.’”

“The Democrats, both Northern and Southerners, believed in limited government and the Marxists hated that concept, they wanted to do away with states’ rights and limited government so that they’d have one big all-powerful indivisible government that could force its will upon the American people,” Kennedy said.

After Swanson asked if “the communists had the ear of Lincoln,” Kennedy said that Karl Marx and other socialists revered Lincoln for opposing the South’s “fight to keep small government alive, states’ rights alive.”

Kennedy went on to say that Lincoln created a “supreme” federal government that led an “incessant attack on religious values in America,” arguing that Lincoln gave communism a “big boost” by winning the Civil War.

“What Marxist dictator could ask for less?” he continued. “All of these communists that have wormed their way into power, into powerful positions, they began to influence other people to pursue this objective of a big, indivisible government, and government supplants God as being sovereign.”

Kennedy said that “post-Appomattox,” America replaced its “freedom-based, liberty-based society” with one that embraced “un-American” values.

“Post-Civil War, you’ve got the socialist goals, the communist platform, the Manifesto platform, I think there are ten elements to the platform, one by one they come about in our country,” Swanson added. “And first was the public schools.”

That’s right: the communists not only defeated the churchgoing, freedom-loving Southern slave owners, but also established evil public schools!

Kennedy said public schools “make all the children think alike and think the way the government wanted them to think, no different than in Nazi Germany or in Soviet Union or in North Korea.”

“They want all of the children to think alike, and what tyrant doesn’t want all of his subjects to think alike?”

Anti-Immigrant Activist Fears Obama Plans For FEMA Coffins 'To Handle 200 Million Deaths'

Leading anti-immigrant groups such as Numbers USA, FAIR, and the Center for Immigration Studies have cited the activism of Zack Taylor as proof that border patrol agents are strongly opposed to immigration reform.

Taylor, who runs the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, regularly appears on right-wing radio shows to spout anti-reform arguments and yesterday stopped by VCY America’s “Crosstalk,” where he revealed himself to be a far-right conspiracy theorist.

After one caller said President Obama is “planning on having major crises in this country” such as “pandemics and possible nuclear strikes,” Taylor floated fears about FEMA internment camps and coffins based on articles he read on the always-reliable internet:

This is just stuff that’s been for years showing up on the internet about him trying to find large detention space that is available, about having — it’s not body bags — temporary or makeshift coffins to handle 200 million deaths. Two million is significant, but 200 million is catastrophic. These are all rumors that are persistent rumors and getting a straight answer out of this government is nearly impossible, it’s almost like you’re better off believing the opposite of what they tell you.

Of course, the internet-based urban legend of disposable FEMA coffins is just that, an urban legend.

When one caller told him about fears that Obama is using immigration “as a distraction to keep us busy” as he invites Belgian and Russian soldiers into America to help him “get ready for martial law,” Taylor said that he is indeed “aware of significant rumors that we are unable to verify.”

Nonetheless, Taylor said United Nations planes are landing at a U.S. base in Arizona.

Taylor also said that unaccompanied minors crossing the border as part of “asymmetrical warfare to destroy the country from within” through “the ancient Asian idea of a death by a thousand cuts.”

“The strategy of asymmetrical warfare is exactly the opposite of conventional warfare, instead of by brute force defeating a nation, it defeats a nation from within by attacking and diminishing its own institutions,” he continued. “They are doing a Cloward-Piven overload of the immigration system.”

He went on to say that Obama is using immigration in order to undermine “jobs and the economy, personal safety, and public health,” adding:

It is distracting the people away from the potential threat of communicable disease, of foreign insurgents being able to get into the country by blending in with the masses coming here, the inability of our border protection people to actually patrol the border because they are sent to do other duties. When you look at it, it is a perfect strategy — there is no doubt, this is a strategy that is being intentionally played out against the United States because it is being done at the behest of the alphabet agencies of the United States and the president.

David Horowitz: 'Tyrant' Obama Is Prevented From 'Throwing People In Jail' … For Now

Conservative author David Horowitz keeps trying to top himself with increasingly over-the-top rhetoric, and yesterday on “Sandy Rios in the Morning” he said the “criminal” President Obama is a “compulsive, brazen, pathological liar” who is “acting like a complete tyrant.”

Thankfully, Horowitz added, “we have somewhat of a constitutional system so he can’t put on a military uniform and start throwing people in jail.”

Horowitz also criticized liberals for demonizing the Tea Party movement, which he said is “really a centrist party.”

He also outlined what he sees as the difference between conservatives and liberals: while “Christian conservatives are missionaries [who] do good” and save people from the Ebola virus, “leftists are destroyers.”

Democracy for All Amendment: PFAW Member Telebriefing

On Wednesday, just over a month before the Senate votes on the Democracy for All Amendment to overturn decisions like Citizens United, People For the American Way members and supporters joined Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) for a telebriefing on the proposed amendment. As our telebriefing facilitator and Director of Communications Drew Courtney noted, Rep. Deutch has been a champion of the push for an amendment in the House of Representatives, where it already has a whopping 117 cosponsors.

In his introduction, Rep. Deutch noted that he was running for Congress when the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision came down in 2010. As he reflected on the issues he was discussing on the campaign trail – from immigration reform to climate change – he saw that for progress to happen on any of them, we need to reform the way we do business in Washington. Rep. Deutch said that with so much dark money coming into our political system, the matters that the overwhelming majority of Americans want to see being addressed by Congress are pushed to the side as wealthy special interests set the political agenda.

To fix this problem and return democracy to the people, he said, we need to overturn decisions like Citizens United. Rep. Deutch underscored the importance of every member of Congress hearing from their constituents again and again on this issue, urging them to become a cosponsor of the Democracy for All Amendment. He also debunked the myth pushed by amendment opponents that the proposal would harm or restrict free speech. To the contrary, Rep. Deutch clarified, the amendment would help us hear the voices of all Americans, no matter what their viewpoint may be. He closed his remarks with an acknowledgment that although amending the Constitution isn’t easy – nor was it meant to be – there are times in American history when we have to take that step.

PFAW Executive Vice President Marge Baker also spoke on the call and fielded questions from activists. She outlined the campaign in support of the Democracy for All Amendment underway this summer, including a week of writing letters to the editor, a week of social media activity, and a week of petition deliveries. Baker highlighted the fact that advocates have to keep up the push not only before and during the Senate vote on Sept. 8, but also in its aftermath. We have to make the phones of our elected officials ring off the hook on the day after the vote, she said, to make clear that we are paying attention to how our representatives voted and that we will keep up our work until the Democracy for All Amendment becomes the 28th Amendment to the Constitution.

For Conservatives, Boycotts Are Noble Efforts When They Support Them, Otherwise It's 'Economic Terrorism'

It was only two years ago that conservative activists were irate that gay rights supporters dared to boycott Chick-fil-A because of donations to anti-gay groups.

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel, for example, said he was outraged by liberals “intimidating” the restaurant chain, and described a similar pressure campaign against the Charity Give Back Group, which was also making contributions to anti-gay political organizations, as “economic terrorism” and proof that gay rights advocates “want to see us behind bars.”

Today, the same Matt Barber called for a boycott of Target over the company’s public support for marriage equality:

Target is filing legal briefs in court cases intended to win marriage rights for homosexuals and lesbians. Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action and Founder of Barbwire.com, tells OneNewsNow it's a slap in the face to millions of pro-family customers who support true marriage between one man and one woman.

“It is just poor business,” he says. “Target, just like other corporations across the country, should at least remain neutral in this ongoing culture war. And at best, they should be endorsing the age old institution of natural marriage, which is the cornerstone to any healthy society.”

He says it's time for the public to speak up with a strong and united voice.

“I hope people will go into Target stores across the country and tell them that they are no longer going to buy products there because Target has joined in the attack on the institution of natural marriage,” he says. “They need to let it be known that they will take their business elsewhere and tell why they are doing so. That's what individuals can do about this.”

In fact, Barber’s boycott hypocrisy was already well established, as he and his group have previously backed boycotts and pressure campaigns against McDonalds, Starbucks, Lowe’s, Pay Pal, and companies that say “Happy Holidays.”

The National Organization for Marriage, which led boycotts against Starbucks and General Mills, yesterday launched a Boycott Target campaign.

The American Decency Association is also backing the Target boycott and urging supporters to cut up their Target credit cards:

Besides not shopping at Target, here a couple of other suggested actions to take:

- If you have a Target credit card, cut it up and return it to the company, or send copies of past receipts, with a note expressing your displeasure at the company’s choosing to align with the LGBT agenda instead of remaining neutral on this issue.

- If you know of a family member planning a wedding or expecting a baby, urge them not to use Target’s bridal and baby registry.

The group directs members to email the Minnesota-based company the following message:

For years Target has worked hard to provide quality products at a reasonable price. You have treated your employees and your customers well. Yet with Target’s recent decision to choose sides in the divisive cultural debate over homosexual marriage, you have put your focus on politics over products.

In 2012 Target affirmed its neutral position on this issue as a Target spokesperson stated: “We recognize that there is a broad range of strongly held views on the Minnesota Marriage amendment.”

I am one that holds to the definition of marriage that has stood for all time – the union of one man and one woman. Millions of others share my beliefs. In fact, A 2013 Star Tribune Minnesota poll revealed that Minnesotans were virtually split on this issue with 46 percent in support and 44 percent opposed, with 10 percent undecided.

Yet Target has chosen to offend half of the population in Minnesota, as well as the populations in other states where the opposition to homosexual marriage is often even higher!

I simply cannot support a company that blatantly undermines my values. Unless Target returns to a position of neutrality regarding this issue, you have lost me as a customer - and I will encourage my friends and family to also shop elsewhere. I strongly urge you to stick to selling quality products, instead of taking sides in promoting a divisive ideology.

I look forward to your response.

Ralph Reed Compares 'War On Faith Being Waged Here In America' To Violent Persecution Abroad

Glenn Beck invited Ralph Reed onto his program this morning to discuss the violent oppression of Christians in countries like Syria and Sudan, such as the case of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman who was sentenced to death for her faith but has now reached safety in the U.S. Of course, the two inevitably slipped away from talking about the actual brutal persecution of Christians in those countries to the supposed persecution of Christians in America through things like health insurance coverage for contraception and same-sex marriage.

After talking about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, Beck told Reed, “We have a problem with hostility to religion here in America too.”

When Beck asked Reed why American pastors aren’t speaking out enough about the persecution of Christians throughout the world, Reed said that one reason “is because we’ve had our own war on faith being waged here in America, not obviously with bombs and bullets and tear gas, but rather with court rulings and executive orders and laws that seek to marginalize the role of faith in our own society.”

“So if people are sitting around wondering, why aren’t we doing more, it’s because we’ve been callous about it in our own midst.”

FRC Claims Citizens United Repeal Would 'Muzzle The Christian Viewpoint'

In a fundraising email today, FRC Action — the Family Research Council’s political arm — announced that it is “working closely with Senator Ted Cruz to take the lead” in opposing a proposed constitutional amendment to roll back Citizens United and related Supreme Court rulings that struck down federal campaign finance rules.

FRC president Tony Perkins has also picked up Cruz’s talking points about the subject, claiming in the email that an amendment restoring the power of Congress to regulate election spending would “scrap” the First Amendment and ultimately allow liberals to “quash our freedom of speech; to silence our calls for liberty and self-government; to muzzle the Christian viewpoint; to make the debate totally one-sided; to brainwash the next generation into believing that this is how it should be.”

In reality, the amendment would return to Congress and state governments the ability to place reasonable regulations on campaign spending, a power they had until very recently.

I thought I'd seen it all.

I thought the First Amendment was settled. I thought freedom of speech -- the fundamental bulwark of liberty at the very heart of our republic -- was so basic to our American way of life, no liberal would have the audacity to suggest scrapping it.

But I was wrong.

It's utterly outrageous to suggest gutting the First Amendment. It is critically important to our national life. Freedom of speech, especially political speech, sets us apart from most other countries in the world. It keeps liberty alive.

It seems Democrats want "free speech" to consist only of government-authorized speech.

They claim they want to cut back on the influence of "special interests" in election campaigns. But of course, the "special interests" they want to silence are organizations like FRC Action. They want to muzzle you and me.

This is not about "election accountability." This is a naked power grab.

This amendment to the Constitution would give the foxes the keys to the henhouse. Those in power -- whom FRC Action is committed to holding accountable -- would now have the ability to silence us, to gag us, to strip us of our right to fully engage in the political process.

Interestingly, if such a far-fetched alteration of our Constitution were to actually take place, there is a particularly strong group that would be protected -- the press! Democrats' liberal allies in the mainstream media would retain their free political speech, while organizations like FRC Action would lose theirs.

Maybe you're thinking: they can't seriously think such a proposal would make it through Congress. And you would be right: they don't.

This is a bald-faced tactic for firing up the Democrats' base -- to get more liberal voters to swarm the polls in the midterm elections this November.

But if we remain silent, if we simply sit and roll our eyes at the absurdity of it all . . . liberals in Congress will be emboldened to keep pushing in this deadly direction.

The Left would love nothing more than to quash our freedom of speech; to silence our calls for liberty and self-government; to muzzle the Christian viewpoint; to make the debate totally one-sided; to brainwash the next generation into believing that this is how it should be.

We're working closely with Senator Ted Cruz to take the lead in exposing this outrage and in challenging any attempt to rewrite our Bill of Rights.
