Sen. Ted Cruz has been rounding up support for his State Marriage Defense Act among conservative talk show hosts, and yesterday Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values sang Cruz’s praises during an interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. Saenz also alleged that growing support for marriage equality is nothing but a myth.
There is this notion that things have changed so much, there’s all this momentum from the media suggesting that people’s views have changed on homosexual marriage. But we’re not seeing that at the polls. All of these victories so to speak that have happened for their side, some short-lived, have been a federal judge who is unelected or the Obama administration or some of the AGs refusing to enforce their own laws and constitution. I haven’t really seen evidence of a major change.
We’re not sure where Saenz has been, but polling consistently shows that a majority of Americans, and an overwhelming number of young people, favor legalizing marriage for same-sex couples. In the 2012 election, a plurality of voters agreed that same-sex marriage should be legal in their state, and marriage equality opponents lost in all four states where voters faced ballot measures on the issue.
The two went on to warn that marriage equality states must also legalize incest (which, despite their claims, has clearly not happened).
“Not only does it destroy the definition of marriage, it perverts the word love,” Perkins said of same-sex marriage. “It becomes nothing more than a sexual act or a physical act of intimacy. Because you could say two brothers love each other, two sisters love each other, an aunt and an uncle love each other, different folks that may not be able to be married could love each other, so if you change this definition, what’s to keep them from entering into some kind of contractual relationship as well? It’s absurd.”
Saenz agreed: “They’re not really interested in equality, the homosexual advocates, they just want what they think they can get and what works best for their selfish interests…. They know that the majority of people do not support them because it breaks apart.”
Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King set off a political firestorm last year when he claimed that for every valedictorian who would benefit from the DREAM Act, “there’s another hundred out there who they weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”
King’s remarks drew heated criticism from progressives, but also from members of his own party, including House Speaker John Boehner, who reportedly called King an “asshole.” This criticism in turn caused King to become hilariously self-righteous, accusing Boehner of making “hateful or ignorant comments” and using “indelicate language.”
In an interview with the Spencer, Iowa, Daily Reporter posted on YouTube today, King continued to lash out at his critics, saying, “they cannot make a point about anything I said that was anything other than true.” He added that his detractors just “call names and criticize the utilization of the language.”
In fact, King claimed that his infamous “cantaloupes” comment was actually an intentional and successful policy move. “Sometimes, I’ve made the point for years and they weren’t listening, so I’ve found another way to get them to pay attention,” he said. “For example, Dick Durbin, as far as I know, no longer describes the DREAMers as ‘valedictorians.’ We’ve corrected that major flaw and sometimes we have to, otherwise it distorts the public’s understand.”
“When they start calling names, they’ve lost the debate,” he said.
King also illustrated his point with a long story about how he doesn’t want the U.S. to be like the Netherlands.
Brian Camenker of the anti-gay group MassResistance joined Voice of Christian Youth America’s Vic Eliason this week for a program on Crosstalk called “Stopping the LGBT War on Children.”
Eliason told one caller that he should oppose gay rights because he wouldn’t sit back if he “saw somebody molesting children.” “The molestation of children through organizations such as what Brian has been talking about here are literally declaring war on children,” he said.
“We’re talking about these explicit homosexual books and philosophies being paraded, then on top of that you have the media that somehow feels that in order to be politically correct you got to have homosexual guests, homosexual actors, homosexual films, all of this stuff,” Eliason lamented. “It ain’t cool unless it’s gay.”
Camenker agreed, calling support for gay rights “insane” and like something out of the Soviet Union: “The homosexual movement does a good job of instilling that fear of harassing people and threatening them terribly so you don’t have anybody speaking out — we do — but when people start speaking out this whole house of cards will start to fall.”
The MassResistance leader also warned that gay rights advocates will turn the U.S. into Nazi Germany, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia and North Korea, agreeing with a caller who urged straight people to fight back with their own “Heterosexual Pride Parades.”
Camenker: You think of what it must have been like in Europe in the 1930s or in the communist countries in the 1920s or in Mao’s communist China or Cambodia where just complete madness was reigning and large numbers of people were part of it. This is what it must have been like where you had complete insanity going on and people buy into it.
Eliason: I mean Massachusetts apparently has an official state GLBT commission. Is that correct?
Camenker: Yes it does.
Caller: Those of us who are heterosexual and/or ex-gay need to come out and have some ‘Heterosexual Pride Parades’ and so forth. I was listening to a talk show on the radio driving home last night and they brought up the Michael Sam situation. All four panelists were pro-homosexual, not one conservative or Christian or opposing viewpoint allowed. I had to stop listening to it. You know, North Korea used to use reeducation camps, China too during the Cultural Revolution. We have that, I’m a nurse and I know what it’s called, it’s called diversity and tolerance training. It’s cultural Marxism pure and simple.
Camenker: I think you’re right, I think you’re absolutely right on all of those points. Believe me, I’ve seen it myself. You are one hundred percent correct.
The 700 Club ran a story today about Charles Manson’s grandson, whose “ties to the Manson family name haunted him, and he swore to break the cycle of drugs and violence.” The younger Manson turned to drugs and ended up in prison, but now “talks to kids about how to avoid the mistakes he made.”
Host Pat Robertson said that the story is a good example of how God can change people if they repent of their sins, whether it be murder, stealing…or being gay: “God knows your sin. Some of you have been involved in homosexuality, some of you have had an abortion, some of you have actually committed murder, you have lied, you have been disobedient to your parents, you have stolen money from your business, and God says if your repent and come to me I’ll wash the slate clean, you can get rid of it all.”
Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt has a new theory that support for immigration reform is the position “that’s actually racist.”
In a column Tuesday, Hurt accused Democrats of staging a “deviously racist” “brown-face minstrel show routine” when it comes to immigration reform, because, he says, Democrats want “millions more” to “become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat” and turn into “another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters”:
When Democrats “fight” for illegals, they talk about wanting to grant them amnesty for their crimes, welfare for not working and free health care. This way, Democrats presume, millions more will become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat and the party will enjoy another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters for decades to come.
If Republicans are smart and genuinely serious about addressing the scourge of illegal immigration, they will reject these Democratic assumptions that illegals are intent on nothing more than being lazy deadbeat scofflaws and denounce Democrats for such a deviously racist portrayal.
Hurt elaborated on his argument in an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, in which he insisted that “the Democratic position is the one that’s actually racist because they keep pandering to immigrants and illegal immigrants and say the only thing they care about is being granted amnesty for their crimes and being given welfare and being given free medical care.”
He claimed that Democrats think that "all these illegals...aspire to do is be sort of deadbeat criminals."
“The truth of the matter,” Hurt said, is that undocumented immigrants are “looking to work” and to be “lawful citizens.”
Hurt seems to have missed that the whole point of immigration reform is to allow undocumented immigrants to work and become lawful citizens.
Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again suggested that President Obama is a Muslim and a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood. While speaking to Christian Broadcasting Network commentator Raymond Ibrahim, the televangelist claimed that “Obama got up at the United Nations and said this man is a prophet and he needs to be honored as a prophet and anybody who won’t honor him as a prophet, there’s something wrong with him; we’re talking about Muhammad, he preached hate.”
Obama actually said the following: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Ibrahim agreed with Robertson’s bogus claim, using it to launch into a defense of Orientalism.
Later in the broadcast, Ibrahim said that “the US is in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood,” while Robertson wondered why Obama is “linked up with the Brotherhood” and “takes leaders of the Brotherhood into the White House for his consultation.”
Among other conspiracy theories circulating throughout the pro-government Egyptian media is the belief that the Obama administration and the Israeli government are secretly aiding the Muslim Brotherhood in order to divide Egypt and destabilize the Mideast.
WorldNetDaily’s Erik Rush naturally believes the US-Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy, listing it as a reason that President Obama should be overthrown and executed.
Today, Rush writes that both Democrats and Republicans are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and warns that Obama is personally setting up Islamsit cells in America to prevent anyone from removing him from office: “Considering the laxity of our federal law enforcement with regard to Islamists within our borders, the insinuation of Muslim Brotherhood operatives into our government and the known presence of foreign jihadis in America, could it be that the president has clandestinely created jihadi cells across country in order to ‘have his back’ in the event that a move is made to remove him?”
It appears that with each passing week – if not more often than that – we are made aware of yet more evidence of the transcendent corruption in our government and political infrastructure, if you will. Although the emerging tyranny of the Obama administration and its audacious proliferation of collectivist policies defy reason, the façade has indeed begun to crumble.
As the crimes of the president and his collaborators are revealed, however, the evidence of even more entrenched subterfuge and malevolent designs comes to light. Some of these – like the overall objectives of Marxists like Obama – have been decades in the making, and involve individuals and organizations the average American would never suspect.
In recent weeks, I have reported here on the history of Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Islamist activist who worked closely with Adolf Hitler during World War II and who was a bridge figure in terms of transporting the genocidal and anti-Semitic Nazi model into the post-war Middle East. I’ve also detailed the similarities between the respective political rises to power of Barack Obama and Mohamed Morsi. This becomes particularly chilling when one considers the damage that continues to be done in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood since Morsi was driven from office. Considering the laxity of our federal law enforcement with regard to Islamists within our borders, the insinuation of Muslim Brotherhood operatives into our government and the known presence of foreign jihadis in America, could it be that the president has clandestinely created jihadi cells across country in order to “have his back” in the event that a move is made to remove him?
Now we have evidence that there are Republican leaders who may be just as guilty as Obama of compromising our national security as well as our sovereignty and our economy. We’re well aware of the influence of high-placed faux conservatives in government and activist circles. Some may be familiar with such stories as the near-takeover of the conservative organization FreedomWorks by progressive Republicans and the infiltration of progressives into the tea-party movement from its inception.
As we move forward in battling our domestic enemies, it is imperative that we remember that this evil transcends party, and impart that knowledge to the newly engaged. The fate of this nation hinges upon those who recognize this, who adopt the Constitution alone as their herald and commit to unequivocal, unapologetic and courageous commitment.
During the controversy over Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay rights issues, Fox News pundit Todd Starnes said that people boycotting the restaurant chain are “un-American” and warned that “the days of persecution are upon us.”
But apparently boycotts aren’t “un-American” as long as Starnes supports them, as today he endorsed the Religious Right boycott of the Girl Scouts over bogus accusations that Girl Scout cookies fund Planned Parenthood:
The Girl Scouts make a great thin mint – but I’ve decided not to buy their cookies this year.
Pro-life groups around the nation have launched a boycott of their cookies because of the organization’s alleged ties to Planned Parenthood.
Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, is one of the nation’s leading pro-life voices. She urged parents to consider healthy, wholesome alternatives.
“No little girl – or her parents – should have anything to do with an organization that kills over 330,000 pre-born children a year, covers up sexual abuse, advocates for infanticide, and builds its entire business model on harming women,” Rose said in a prepared statement.
So that’s why I’ve decided to forego their peanut butter patties this year. If I knew that a single penny of Girl Scout money was helping to fund Planned Parenthood — Well – I’d just lose my cookies.
Naturally, Starnes cites Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to suggest that the late civil rights leader would criticize the program as racist against white people.
I applaud the president’s initiative – but what about the young, white man looking for a job?
Where are the special programs designed to help him get a leg up in the world? Where are the mentoring and interning opportunities for white kids from impoverished neighborhoods?
The Rev. Martin Luther King Junior once had a dream that his children would one day live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
Let’s hope in the future that President Obama applies that same standard when it comes time to helping all young men find jobs.
Or better yet – why not just hire the best person for the job – regardless of their skin color?
Perhaps Starnes should actually read some of Dr. King’s work, as he will find out that King supported a full employment economy and backed policies specifically addressing the black community:
We call our demonstration a campaign for jobs and income because we feel that the economic question is the most crucial that black people and poor people generally are confronting. There is a literal depression in the Negro community. When you have mass unemployment in the Negro community, it’s called a social problem; when you have mass unemployment in the white community, it’s called a depression. The fact is, there is a major depression in the Negro community. The unemployment rate is extremely high, and among Negro youth, it goes up as high as forty percent in some cities.
We need an economic bill of rights. This would guarantee a job to all people who want to work and are able to work. It would also guarantee an income for all who are not able to work. Some people are too young, some are too old, some are physically disabled, and yet in order to live, they need income . . . It would mean creating public-service jobs, and that could be done in a few weeks. A program that would really deal with jobs could minimize ---I don’t say stop---the number of riots that could take place this summer. Our whole campaign, therefore, will center on the job question, with other demands, like housing, that are closely tied to it. Much more building of housing for low-income people should be done. . .
King also claimed that the anti-black racism is heavily ingrained in the US economy:
Depressed living standards for Negroes are not simply the consequence of neglect. Nor can they be explained by the myth of the Negro’s innate incapacities, or by more sophisticated rationalization of his acquired infirmities (family disorganization, poor education, etc.). They are a structural part of the economic system in the United States. Certain industries are based on a supply of low-paid, under-skilled and immobile nonwhite labor.
Starnes might also want to know that King advocated black solidarity in pursuing social and economic change.
The economic highway to power has few entry lanes for Negroes. Nothing so vividly reveals the crushing impact of discrimination and the heritage of exclusion as the limited dimensions of Negro business in the most powerful economy in the world.
We have many assets to facilitate organization. Negroes are almost instinctively cohesive. We band together readily, and against white hostility we have an intense and wholesome loyalty to each other. We are acutely conscious of the need, and sharply sensitive to the importance, of defending our own. Solidarity is a reality in Negro life, as it always has been among the oppressed.
But all of this will probably fall on deaf ears since it might get in the way of Starnes’ efforts to level attacks on Obama and distort King’s actual beliefs.
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council alleged yesterday that people who agree with the scientific consensus regarding evolution and climate change are actually out of step with modern science.
Perkins, who has previously professed belief in Young Earth Creationism (the belief that the earth is only several thousand years old), said on Washington Watch that “the theory of evolution just doesn’t work when you consider all the holes, look at the fossil record, the molecular isolation, transitional difficulties, irreducible complexity, cyclical change, genetic limits, there are just so many holes and flaws in the evolutionary theory.”
He later compared the supposed problems with evolution to the purported flaws in climate science: “I remember a few years ago, it might have been Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson, made a reference to a hurricane or a storm being an act of God — it’s interesting that’s how we refer to some of these things in our insurance policies — they were ridiculed, saying ‘how dumb can you be?’ Well, there’s more to back that up than to say what’s happening in our environment, our climate, is because of people driving Suburbans or coal-fired power plants.”
Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly has been busy peddling her new anti-immigration report to conservative media, and yesterday took her case to Infowars, where she chatted about immigration with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
Schlafly repeated her frequent claim that most of “the Hispanics coming in” don’t “even understand or want a smaller government” and therefore will ultimately end “freedom and prosperity” in America. “They’re not voting for amnesty, they’re voting for handouts by the government and they get that by going Democratic,” she said.
Jones wholeheartedly agreed, adding that new immigrants will then “support literally making those of us that produce they’re slaves.”
“It would be a joke if it weren’t so really tragic,” Schlafly concurred.
Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin yesterday blamed President Obama for the high rate of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sexual assaults among military service members.
Speaking with FRC president Tony Perkins on Washington Watch about an Associated Press story on the increasing number of military officers leaving the Army due to misconduct charges, Boykin said that Obama and his “radical agenda” are responsible for the problems in the military.
Boykin claimed that leaders of “true American values” are “electing to leave the military” because the Obama administration “has proceeded down the path of social engineering in our military and forced its very radical agenda on our military" and now people with “questionable backgrounds and character” are taking their place, contributing to growing rates of “sexual assault and fraud and all kinds of things.”
He added that Obama is bringing “lawlessness” into the military.
Boykin even linked Obama to PTSD cases: “One of the reasons I think we see so much PTSD today is because of this lawlessness, it’s because of the declining moral climate and troops are in a situation where they actually don’t know what the standards are — moral standards, value standards — they don’t know what they are because they don’t see it at the highest levels, all the way up to the Commander-in-Chief, and as a result of that I think from time to time they do bad things that they live with the rest of their life.”
While George Washington’s religious faith is to this day a matter of debate, Charisma is out with an article by pastor Eddie Hyatt insisting that Washington was an evangelical Christian just like Charisma readers.
Some have challenged Washington’s faith because he was a slave owner. But what is often not told is the fact that when Washington was challenged on how his keeping of slaves was inconsistent with his profession of faith in Christ, he began setting in motion a compassionate plan, at great personal cost, to make Mt. Vernon slave free. He offered freedom to all who wanted to go, but realizing that some did not have the knowledge and skills to prosper on their own, no one was forced to leave. Those who chose to stay began receiving wages for their work. Washington was much beloved by the black workers on his plantation whom he fed well, encouraged to marry and build families, and made sure they were well instructed in the gospel. Many, therefore, chose not to leave and became employees of the estate. Children were not released until they were of age and were provided with food, clothing, shelter and education. His own actions expanded his vision and he wrote, “I clearly foresee that nothing but the rooting out of slavery can perpetuate the existence of our union.”
Maybe Hyatt should read about the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793 or about Washington’s attempts to kidnap and re-enslave Oney Judge, a slave who escaped from his plantation, before he claims that Washington “offered freedom to all who wanted to go” and only kept them in inhumane bondage to help them “prosper on their own.”
In 1847, Rev. Benjamin Chase wrote a letter to the editor of the abolitionist newspaper The Liberator describing an interview he had conducted with while she lived as a runaway slave in New Hampshire, where Washington had sent men to capture her and her child. Chase noted that Judge’s reports of Washington drinking and playing cards on Sunday might have mattered more to some doubters of the former president’s Christian faith than his ownership of hundreds of slaves:
She says that she never received the least mental or moral instruction, of any kind, while she remained in Washington's family. But, after she came to Portsmouth, she learned to read; and when Elias Smith first preached in Portsmouth, she professes to have been converted to Christianity.
She, and the woman with whom she lives, (who is nearly of her age,) appear to be, and have the reputation of being imbued with the real spirit of Christianity. She says that the stories told of Washington's piety and prayers, so far as she ever saw or heard while she was his slave, have no foundation. Card-playing and wine-drinking were the business at his parties, and he had more of such company Sundays than on any other day. I do not mention this as showing, in my estimation, his anti-Christian character, so much as the bare fact of being a slaveholder, and not a hundredth part so much as trying to kidnap this woman; but, in the minds of the community, it will weigh infinitely more.
Great names bear more weight with the multitude, than the eternal principles of God's government. So good a man as Washington is enough to sanctify war and slavery; but where is the evidence of his goodness?
This woman is yet a slave. If Washington could have got her and her child, they were constitutionally his; and if Mrs. Washington's heirs were now to claim her, and take her before Judge Woodbury, and prove their title, he would be bound, upon his oath, to deliver her up to them. Again — [New Hampshire Gov.] Langdon was guilty of a moral violation of the Constitution, in giving this woman notice of the agent being after her. It was frustrating the design, the intent of the Constitution, and he was equally guilty, morally, as those who would overthrow it [emphasis in orignal].
On Valentine’s Day, I found a stack of boxed “Duck Dynasty” valentines on the 50 percent clearance shelf at Food Lion. America seems to have moved on from December’s flap over offensive remarks by Phil Robertson – along with many of the show’s former viewers – but the American Family Association hopes that fond memories of the family patriarch’s anti-gay sentiments will encourage AFA’s contributors to dig deep.
A new fundraising letter from AFA’s Tim Wildmon is built around a postcard to Robertson that Wildmon asks people to sign and return to the AFA, along with a check. The postcard reads:
By simply expressing the truth of God’s moral law you have encouraged other Christians to speak out in opposition to those who would convince our society that homosexuality is morally equivalent to heterosexuality.
Following your example, I intend to be bolder and more active in defense of God’s truth.
I am praying for you and your family. May God bless you.
Wildmon’s letter, which recounts Robertson’s brief suspension by the A&E network, portrays the support for Robertson from Christian conservatives as an opportunity to “uproot the entrenched evil that’s killing the soul of our nation.”
Will Christians and other like-minded Americans seize the moment? Will we capture the energy Phil Robertson has generated and draw on that energy to confront the entrenched fortresses of error and sexual anarchy that now dominate our social landscape?
The homosexual lobby’s outrageous demand – and A&E’s capitulation – has awakened social conservatives from their slumber and brought them to the point where they’ve had it with being insulted, demeaned and deprived of their basic rights to freedom of religion and speech.
That being the case, we’ve got to harness the outrage of Christians and direct it at helping uproot the entrenched evil that’s killing the soul of our nation.
If we fail to do this, then all this righteous anger will dissipate and our cultural wasteland will remain just that: a cultural wasteland. On the other hand, using the support that you and other AFA ministry partners provide, we will act quickly and decisively to turn this attack on Phil Robertson into a victory for our nation and for those who are to come after us.
It’s worth noting that while sometimes, when AFA radio host and spokesman Bryan Fischer says something even more offensive than usual, he and the organization claim (unconvincingly) that he doesn’t speak for the AFA, Wildmon happily quotes Fischer’s defense of Robertson and his criticism of “Big Gay.”
While speaking with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on Monday, Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) claimed that an effort to make a more uniform framework of standards and benchmarks in schools, Common Core, is actually a plot by the federal government to “indoctrinate” students and breed “socialism.”
Despite the congressman’s suggestion, Common Core was not designed by the federal government but was actually a project of the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, which wanted to stop states from “lowering standards to make it easier for students to pass tests and for schools to avoid penalties under the 2002 federal No Child Left Behind law.”
Bridenstine said Common Core is actually an attempt by the federal government to “control opinions” and weaken American exceptionalism.
You don’t have the federal government controlling opinions and indoctrinating students and teachers with what they want the public to learn, and basically what they want the public to learn is that which is ‘common’ – which is why it’s called Common Core. I believe in exceptionalism and I think what Common Core does is it brings it all down to the lowest common denominator. It’s much like socialism. Socialism has been spreading poverty equally across the world and that’s not what we believe in. We believe in exceptionalism and that’s what our country should be advancing, not commonality.
Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is upset about new state efforts to bar the use of “ex-gay” therapy on minors, which he says are no different from laws banning someone from helping a person out of a burning building.
“If people want to engage in behavior that is destructive, personally, I want to warn them about it, I don’t want to be silenced from the ability of saying ,‘Hey, your house is on fire, you might want to come out,’” Perkins said. “Of course you’re saying that’s absurd, who would ever pass a law saying you can’t say ‘your house is on fire’?”
“Well, more and more states are actually moving to make it illegal for children under eighteen to receive counseling to come out of homosexuality.”
Perkins lamented that such laws “silence” parents who want to “help” their child “come out of a lifestyle we know is destructive and harmful.”
A columnist for Alan Keyes’ Renew America, which has launched a campaign to impeach President Obama, claims that Republicans shouldn’t fear bringing impeachment charges against Obama because he’s not really black.
“Barack Obama is mulatto,” Sylvia Thompson writes. “If you think about it, this nation has not yet elected, in the true sense, a black president. The first American black president will be someone like former presidential candidate Herman Cain or former Congressman Allen West.”
Thompson claims that Republicans won’t impeach Obama because of the “fear of being branded racist. If Obama is black, he is therefore untouchable, and that thinking is detrimental to this nation.”
Instead, Republicans should emphasize “his equal portion of whiteness and oppose that part of him,” as “it would be an unconscionable act of defeatism to allow Obama’s half-blackness to take down America.”
If you agree with talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who says Obama will never be impeached because he is the first black president, then that is a problem. It is time for this nation to stop ignoring a full fifty percent of Barack Obama's heritage and claiming that he is "black," as though his mother, grandparents (who reared him) and an entire family lineage did not exist. If you think about it, this nation has not yet elected, in the true sense, a black president. The first American black president will be someone like former presidential candidate Herman Cain or former Congressman Allen West. These are men whose heritage goes back to not simply Africans, but specifically Africans brought to America centuries ago. That is a distinction, in my view, worth emphasizing, given the paralysis inflicting the nation over how to deal with Barack Obama.
Obama is a mixed-race person. His father was an African from the East African country Kenya, and his mother was of Caucasian European descent. That means Barack Obama is mulatto. Look it up if the word is unfamiliar to you.
I make this point in the hope of moving at least a few souls out there beyond the barrier that prevents them from criticizing and actively fighting this man, who is hell-bent on destroying the country. The utter impotence of Republican leadership in Congress; the seemingly servile behavior of the Supreme Court (Justice John Roberts' contortive route to approving Obamacare); the few other-than-leftist media outlets, whose commentators soft-pedal around every unlawful move that Obama makes; all stem, in my view, from fear of being branded racist. If Obama is black, he is therefore untouchable, and that thinking is detrimental to this nation.
I have always thought that Obama was chosen by the Left and groomed for politics so as to be used as a tool. There is nothing outstanding about him other than his ability to speak smoothly, and that skill is merely a factor of being reared among educated people. I think that the architects of his development and eventual thrust upon the political scene surmised that the brown skin (no matter that he got it from a foreign African and not an American black father) would make him sufficiently black to foil criticism from white Americans. These background masterminds also knew that as he advanced their leftist agenda, some Americans would raise holy hell. A surefire way to dampen that resistance would be to play the race card. And, sadly for America, the scheme has worked well.
For those who cannot quite move beyond Obama's blackness, I strongly urge that you at least consider his equal portion of whiteness and oppose that part of him, if it is easier for you to do so. It behooves the rest of us to support the efforts of Dr. Keyes and other Americans seeking solutions, such as those who are suing Obama for specific infractions against his oath of office. Whatever you do, vow that you will not cave to the Left's seeming victory over this nation. It would be an unconscionable act of defeatism to allow Obama's half-blackness to take down America.
Writing in the Black Christian News Network, McKissic warns that Sam will “become the face of the ‘gay rights’ movement that takes us down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah at a record setting pace,” triggering the coming of the Antichrist who “would be a homosexual, or certainly unmarried.”
Fifty years ago, James Brown released a song that became a great source of inspiration, pride, and self-esteem for Black Americans—“Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” I remember it so well. All the kids in my neighborhood sang it with great joy. It became a rallying cry. Bursting out of obscurity into the National Spotlight recently hails Michael Sam saying it loud, “I am gay and I’m proud.”
Will Michael Sam become the face of the “gay rights” movement that takes us down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah at a record setting pace? Mr. Sam has received words of affirmation from President and Mrs. Obama, Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, and a host of others, simply for announcing to the world that he prefers to engage in sexual activity with another male, rather than a female.
John and Paul indicate that the spirit of the Anti-Christ would be unleashed upon the world in the last days (I John 2:18; I Timothy 4:1). Daniel 11:37 tells two interesting, and relevant to this subject matter, characteristics regarding the Anti-Christ:
1. “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers.” In order to embrace same-sex relationships and homosexuality, one has to disregard the God of our fathers. Know that anybody who preaches that homosexuality is acceptable to God is not preaching the God of the Bible. They are disrespecting the God of the Bible and representing the anti-Christ. The notion that gay rights and civil rights are compatible is from the pit of hell. Rev. Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, deep down in her sanctified soul, she knows that her dad did not die for same-sex marriage rights. Martin Luther King did not sacrifice his life for two football players to get married. The thought of such is a desecration to his legacy.
2. Daniel also reveals that the Anti-Christ would not desire women. A male who does not desire a woman is considered suspect where I came from. I believe that Daniel was telling us that the Anti-Christ would have no desire for women, which may be a subtle way of suggesting that the Anti-Christ would be a homosexual, or certainly unmarried.
According to DL Foster, “The Daniel reference to the sexual nature of the anti-Christ as envisioned by Daniel is telling considering the world’s end time affirmation of homosexual perversion. The word ‘desire’ is drawn from the Hebrew chamad, which points to lust and desire associated with male/female sexuality. Thus, we can make a broad assumption that the anti-Christ will have no sexual desire for women.”
As the saints learn how to live in Sodom, we must take solace in the fact that the Bible accurately predicts that the spirit of Sodom would be prevalent and prominent in the end time. Jesus, John, Paul, and Daniel predicted what we are now seeing.
MADISON – Yesterday Wisconsin State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) introduced SJR 68, a resolution that would place an advisory referendum on the November 2014 ballot calling for a federal constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United v. FEC decision. It is a companion resolution to AJR 50, introduced last year by State Rep. Chris Taylor (D-Madison) in the Wisconsin Assembly. People For the American Way regional political coordinator Scott Foval released the following statement:
“The people of Wisconsin deserve a chance to weigh in on the corrupting influence of corporate spending in our democracy. Wisconsinites have made it clear that money in politics is an issue they care deeply about. To date, 27 local resolutions calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United have passed in counties and municipalities across Wisconsin. Thirteen more will be on local referendums in April. Just as Representative Taylor has led on this issue in the Assembly, Senator Hansen recognizes that the unbridled spending the Citizens United decision unleashed is harmful to our democracy.
“While the Republican Assembly leadership continues to block progress on AJR 50, we hope the Republican State Senate leadership will put the people first and pass SJR 68 – allowing voters to decide whether a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United is the best way to push back on corporate control of our political process. PFAW continues to stand on the side of the people and will work with our allies in Wisconsin to push for a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics.”
