Leader Of Anti-Garland Group Once Demanded Judges Have A 'Biblical View Of Justice'

As we and others have noted, the Judicial Crisis Network, the primary outside group backing the Senate GOP’s blockade of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, is funded almost entirely by a dark-money group connected to a single family of conservative donors.

On Friday, Open Secrets uncovered that the same dark-money network funding JCN is behind another group that is working to oppose Merrick Garland’s nomination: the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT).

Open Secrets reports that FACT, which styles itself as a right-wing alternative to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), receives all of its funding through Donor’s Trust, a donor-advised fund that acts as a “pass-through vessel” for conservative funders, making the source of contributions all but impossible to trace. But Open Secrets found evidence linking FACT to the Corkery family, who are behind a number of conservative groups including JCN. JCN and FACT share a treasurer, Neil Corkery, and FACT has the same front address as a number of Corkery-linked groups.

The executive director of FACT and the sole paid employee listed on its most recent tax filing is Matt Whitaker, a former U.S. Attorney from Iowa who we here at Right Wing Watch remember from his unsuccessful run for his home state’s Republican Senate nomination in 2014 (it ultimately went to now-Sen. Joni Ernst). When asked at a debate what criteria he would use to determine whether to support or attempt to block President Obama’s federal judicial nominees, Whitaker said that he would ask if nominees are “people of faith” and “have a biblical view of justice.”

“As long as they have that worldview, then they’ll be a good judge,” he said. “And if they have a secular worldview, where this is all we have here on earth, then I’m going to be very concerned about how they judge.”

From the Open Secrets report on FACT:

One right-leaning group has weighed in more quietly: The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) has demanded Harvard University release records having to do with Garland’s role in the debate in the early 1970s over whether to allow ROTC recruiters on that campus. In late March, FACT’s executive director, Matthew Whitaker, was quoted saying that “Americans have a right to know about Garland’s views of the military.”

Turns out JCN and FACT have something in common, beyond a penchant for keeping the names of their donors secret: Neil Corkery, who is treasurer of the judicial group and also the treasurer and a member of the board of directors at FACT, a 501(c)(3) organization.

Its funding — $600,000 in 2014, according to the only tax return it has filed to date — comes entirely from a conservative donor-advised fund called DonorsTrust, which means it could come from anywhere. DonorsTrust is a pass-through vessel that manages the charitable contributions of wealthy individuals and foundations to organizations that are “dedicated to the ideals of limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise,” according to its website, while allowing the donors to remain anonymous. Charles Koch is among the many conservatives who have filtered money through DonorsTrust.

In other words, an organization “dedicated to promoting accountability, ethics, and transparency” gets 100 percent of its funds from a group that exists mainly as a vehicle for donors to elude transparency.

Meanwhile, Corkery adds FACT to a long list of nondisclosing nonprofits at which he holds, or has held, a key position, often treasurer, and which often have overlapping slates of directors or officers. For instance, at two other groups where Corkery is treasurer, the Judicial Education Project and Catholic Voices, a close family ally by the name of Dan Casey is president and director, respectively. Casey is also the secretary of JCN. At the Sudan Relief Fund, Corkery is president, Casey is treasurer, and Ann Corkery, Neil’s wife, is a director.

Ann Corkery is also president of the Wellspring Committee, from which JCN receives substantial funding, including more than $6.6 million in 2014; Kathleen Corkery, the couple’s daughter, is on Wellspring’s board of directors, and its secretary-treasurer is Casey’s son. Neil Corkery draws salaries from several of the groups where he’s an office; Ann is paid by Wellspring. (Venn diagram in the works.)

Many of the groups list the same Georgetown address as their office, with different suite numbers. In reality, the address is that of a UPS store, and the suite numbers are post boxes. FACT’s listed address, in downtown Washington, D.C., has no markings; it appears to be an address that is cited by more than one organization without actually being physically used by any of them, with a receptionist who answers the phone with the names of various groups depending on which line is called.

Oath Keepers Founder Ready For War With Liberal, Islamist, Drug Cartel Coalition

While speaking with Alex Jones last week, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes said that his militia group is prepared to fight the supposed alliance between liberals, Black Lives Matter activists, anarchists, gangs, drug cartels and jihadists determined “to destroy western civilization.”

Rhodes boasted that his extremist group is “starting student chapters on college campuses across the country,” while Jones warned that college student bodies today are dominated by violent Maoists bent on killing their adversaries.

The Oath Keepers leader had a warning for any student who tried to burn the American flag: “You’re going to get stomped. That’s what’s going to happen to them. I know a lot of veterans, the first time they see some radical leftist trampling on a flag or burning a flag, they’re going to kick their ass. I know you can say it’s free speech, but the veteran doesn’t care about that. In his mind, it’s not free speech, that’s not protected speech, it’s incitement to violence so he’s going to go ahead and use it.”

“When someone gets in your face and wants to use violence, like that one commissar who was screaming and screeching for ‘muscle,’ ‘Bring some muscle over here, I need muscle,’ people like that, we have no sympathy for, so when she gets what’s coming to her and those like her, well that’s just the way it goes,” Rhodes continued. “When someone does defend themselves and they get stomped, of course they’ll screech and call them ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’ and ‘brownshirts’ but they brought it on themselves so I just have no sympathy for them.”

Rhodes then said that European leaders are inviting “jihadists” to set up “up a future Tet Offensive, Tet-style offensive in Europe and the same thing is being done to this country, so if we just sit back, they’ll win because they’ll just cause the chaos they’ll use as creative destruction.”

He said Oath Keepers’ “civil defense units” will “fight in the street” against “the jihadists and the cartels and the gangs and these radical Black Lives Matter people and the black anarchists, the black flag anarchists; they are all just force multipliers and proxies, just as we saw during the Cold War with communism.”

Jones announced that “we have a mole inside the Democrats” who has reported that party operatives are buying InfoWars shirts to wear while committing a “fourth generation false flag” and that Muslim refugees in America and Europe are “preparing a secret super assault, a jihadist, western Tet Offensive.”

According to Rhodes, liberals “support radical Islamists” because “they want to destroy western civilization” and want to “use them as a force multiplier as part of their creative destruction and then later control them. Of course they’re wrong, they’ll wind up with their heads chopped off at the end, if they prevail.” Jones further explained that the communist leaders “are planning a hot takeover” and are going to “conscript people that aren’t domesticated as their slaves” and hope that the radical Islamists commit terrorist attacks so that they can “bring in martial law after.”

Rhodes said this was the “creative destruction” he has warned about, suggesting that Hitler-like western leaders will not only bring in terrorists but also millions of Latin American refugees after deliberately “imploding” their home countries’ economies. He urged viewers to get ready to fight MS-13 gangs “or some Islamist cell down the street.”

Rick Joyner Claims 'Our People Died' Because Russia And China Hacked Hillary Clinton's Email Server

On the latest episode of his "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner stated that it's an outrage that Hillary Clinton has not been indicted over her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state, especially since it's been proven that both Russia and China hacked her server and that people died as a result.

"Some of the emails were classified above top secret," Joyner asserted, "and we do know that the Russians and the Chinese both hacked in, probably got all that information. We don't know how many of our people died; we know that some did. We know that some of our operatives have disappeared ... All this has come out in the news, it's all been public record."

Joyner's claims, of course, are nonsense.

Jerome Corsi & Alex Jones: 90 Million Americans Could Soon Be 'Eliminated'

Last week, WorldNetDaily “reporter” Jerome Corsi joined InfoWars host Alex Jones to discuss his predictions for 2016, which include economic collapse, nuclear attacks and World War III.

Corsi told Jones that “this is the most critical time in world history and we’re on the verge of a major financial collapse and a World War III event” involving nuclear conflict. “The globalists will be happy — kill 5 or 6 billion people, they’re not going to miss them, that’s the problem,” he said.

“We really have power-mad pseudo-communists run by weirdo war criminals like George Soros going completely insane,” Jones said. “It’s crazy. I don’t think they even know what they’re doing now. They just hate freedom, hate free markets, hate Christians, hate America and just want to screw everything up.”

Corsi said that the U.S. government has evolved into a “fascist” system that is being led by people who want to “keep the power in Washington and the rest of the country, ‘forget it, put them on welfare, if they’re not useful, they can be eliminated in the next global war, doesn’t matter.’” He estimated that the group slated for elimination amounts to around 90 million people.

“In the ’30s, the United States was more of a capitalist country, we had more individual freedom and we still had a God-fearing society,” Corsi said, something that would be news to many people of color. “And today that’s gone.”

But Corsi said there is some good news.

While Europe suffers financial chaos and terrorist attacks, Corsi believes that the U.S. may turn around by electing Donald Trump. Otherwise, “this is the last chapter” for America.

“While you’re saying this, there’s a giant thunderstorm overhead, it made me get chills up my back,” Jones said. “I know the left captured us, the globalists run us. Why do they want to bring in 5 million jihadis in to kill us? Why? Why do they hate prosperity and nice stuff?”

Tea Party Group Draws Crowd Of Tens To Protest Supreme Court Confirmation

Today, as thousands of people gathered in front of the Supreme Court to voice their support of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a somewhat smaller crowd organized by Tea Party Patriots held forth against the DAPA/DACA actions and urged the Senate not to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

We counted about 20 people at the Tea Party Patriots event at 11 am, shortly before the event’s speeches were scheduled to begin: 

The heavily outnumbered protesters carried signs saying “#NoHearingsNoVotes,” “#TheDecisionIsOurs,” “#LetThePeopleDecide” and “Let The People Have A Voice On The Future Of The Court,” the message that anti-Garland groups have settled on to make their quest to block hearings on a Supreme Court nomination sound like a populist rallying cry. The sign on a podium labeled Garland “Obama’s Rubber Stamp.”

There was a high ratio of Republican and conservative movement speakers to grassroots activists, asRep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas,Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo.,Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and the Judicial Crisis Network’s Carrie Severino addressed the small crowd.

Here’s another view of the Tea Party Patriots event:

 

UPDATE: Politico reports:

News concerences sponsored by the Tea Party and FreedomWorks also featured Reps. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), as well as other speakers who unsuccessfully tried to lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance and "America the Beautiful." An effort to lead a singalong of the national anthem backfired when the singer forgot the lyrics midway through, drawing jeers.

 

The 'National Diversity Coalition For Trump' Is Exactly What You'd Expect

Earlier this month, a "National Diversity Coalition for Trump" was formed by the GOP presidential frontrunner's lawyer Michael Cohen for the purpose of, in the words of one of the group's leaders, demonstrating to voters that Donald Trump is "not racist, misogynist, sexist or Islamophobic." Trump is reportedly scheduled to meet with this group today and we are not at all surprised to see that Lance Wallnau is listed among the group members.

Wallnau, as we've noted before, is a leading proponent of Seven Mountains dominionism, the idea that Christians are to "do whatever is necessary" to take control of all aspects of the culture, such as business, educaiton and the media, in order to implement the will of God throughout the world. Wallnau is especially concerned with gaining control over the "mountain of government" because he believes that it is currently under the control of Satan ... and he seems to believe that Trump just might be the man to finally claim it for Christ.

As he declared in a video that he uploaded to his Facebook page last year, Wallnau has been leading "a group of people that are praying for and encouraging Mr. Donald Trump" because "God has given this man an anointing for the mantle of government in the United States and he will prosper!"

Also among the members of diversity coalition is Frances Rice of the National Black Republican Association, who absurdly claimed a few years ago that the GOP's infamous "Southern Strategy" was an effort by the Republican Party to get "fair-minded" non-racist voters in the South to stop supporting the racist Democratic Party.

"That strategy was designed to get the fair-minded people in the South to stop discriminating against blacks and to stop supporting a party that did not share their values," she said. "So those fair-minded ones who migrated to the Republican Party did so. They joined us, we did not join the racists."

Dan Gainor: Hollywood Is Waging War On American Culture And Christianity

On Friday's radio program, Bryan Fischer interviewed Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center about the new DirecTV program "You Me Her" which, according to press reports, "centers around a three-way romantic relationship involving a suburban married couple."

Fischer and Gainor were predictably outraged about the show, with Gainor decrying it for "putting a nuclear weapon under the nuclear family and destroying it."

Just 20 years ago, Fischer said, the idea of gay marriage would have been "unthinkable" but now polygamy is being openly prompted on television and this "cultural rot is becoming mainstream."

Gainor agreed, fuming that "if ISIS were to launch a widespread media propaganda campaign tearing down American culture, targeting Christianity, targeting American children for depravity ... we would declare war on them. And in fact, Hollywood does it every single day, probably every single minute."

"Hollywood is the most irresponsible use of power we have ever seen," Gainor stated.

Paranoia-Rama: Sarah Palin Versus Science, Franklin Graham's Warning And The Looming Gay Civil War

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

While Sarah Palin concentrates on fighting the supposed myth of climate change, Franklin Graham and other conservatives are warning about the imminent dangers of LGBT rights.

5) Sarah Palin Debunks Climate Science

Noted climate science expert Sarah Palin was invited to publicize the recent film “Climate Hustle,” which, according to the Guardian, “dismisses global warming as an excuse for government takeover and makes the outrageously false claim that rising carbon emissions are beneficial.”

Anyone with doubts about the film’s claims can rest assured that Palin has attested to its scientific accuracy. The former half-term Alaska governor promoted the film at an event hosted by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who just so happens to chair the House committee on science, space and technology.

The former vice-presidential nominee admitted she did not believe scientists about anything any more – and appealed to presidential contenders to intervene, somehow.

“The science is kind of getting thrown out of the window in discussions about changes in the weather,” Palin said. “It’s something that our candidates should be talking about and giving us their view on and hopefully acknowledging that it needs to become in the science community less political. Otherwise, it leads us to believe that so many things then coming from the scientists could be bogus. If this is bogus, what else are they trying to tell us and control us around?”

To Palin’s mind, efforts by government, business leaders, campaigners – and yes, scientists like Nye – to fight climate change were a mere smokescreen for a huge power grab. She did not say by whom.

Palin said that climate science experts have a “political,” “predetermined agenda” and “have studied the data that they are erroneously delivering to the public to make us think that we can somehow change the weather and how they do that is to grow government and allow the government to have more control over us, our homes, our businesses, our families, our lives, and it’s quite unfortunate because these people must be purposely doing this, right?”

“Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” she declared.

4) Gay Civil War

Conservative blogger Michael Ware is very concerned about the prospect of a coming civil war.

And the LGBT rights movement is to blame.

Ware writes that just as slavery was the “wedge” that kept “pushing the North and South apart,” now America is divided by “the economic and political bullying” of states that are “unwilling to give these perverse people the legal club with which to beat the church into submission.”

What we have to ask is: is this a replay of the events that led to that bloody conflict fought between Americans from 1861-1865? Is the Unitarian playbook now being used by the Homosexual agenda to finish the destruction they started in the Church?

Or is it just coincidence that the same things are being said about the church? Are these people just pouting or are they preparing to devour our rights?

It sure looks as if the same people are again the target of their vile threatening. We must pray for deliverance from such a situation, and from such a beast.

3) Gay Socialism

While Ware thinks that the gay rights movement is leading to war, WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush believes that the movement is part of a gradual effort to introduce socialism.

He writes this week that liberals are only “concerned about the supposed rights of homosexuals, transvestites and assorted sexual deviants” because they are determined to establish a “socialist state,” and can only do so by “disenfranchising” anyone who gets in their way. LGBT equality, he writes, “negates the civil liberties of the majority” and “opens the door to ever-increasing institutional oppression of the majority faction.”

“Once this has been accomplished, not only does the doctrine of the majority no longer effectively supersede the will of the State, but the State is now free to impose secular doctrines, laws and regulations that are more conducive to state control and manipulation of the populace in every area of their lives,” Rush writes. “Thus, it becomes clear that the ‘struggle for LGBT rights’ in America is and has always been nothing more than a pretext for the complete disenfranchisement of Christians.”

2) Franklin Graham’s Diagnosis

Franklin Graham took his Decision America tour to Montgomery, Alabama, this week, where he told the crowd that the devil is behind the separation of church and state “lie” and that communist secularism is taking control of America.

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports:

“When I think of the sins of this country, well, where do you begin to list them? Abortion, the murder of children in a mother's womb. Millions. Same sex marriage, the flaunting and celebrating of this sin.”

Drawing on his childhood memories of the Cold War, Graham argued that “enemies” are engaged in warfare for the spiritual salvation of the United States.

“As the [Berlin] wall came down, secularism began to creep into Washington. It crept into our universities, into our state capitols, it got into our city government. There’s no difference between secularism and communism. They’re both godless. Both are godless. And godless secularism is now taking control of our governments.”



“You say, but Franklin, how about separation of church and state? What about it? Let me tell you that’s just a lie that the enemy uses to try to keep your mouth shut.”

1) The Truth About Glenn Beck Finally Comes Out

Well, here’s something different. Rather than a conspiracy theory from Glenn Beck, it’s a conspiracy theory about Glenn Beck.

In a long rant that has something to do with aspartame, Alex Jones says that Beck “was hired right before 9/11 and gotten ready to come out to be the synthetic Alex Jones,” telling InfoWars viewers that Beck “watched weeks of my videos and shows” and was told, “Take this and mix it with Oprah.”

“He’s a mixture of Oprah Winfrey and Alex Jones, all in a big, weird doughboy’s body,” Jones said. “A cult leader. A Nellie high priest.”

Gay People Don't Need Marriage If You Invite Them To Thanksgiving

Ryan Anderson, a fellow at the Heritage Foundation, has become a popular speaker at social conservative events because of his ability to voice opposition to marriage equality in a kinder, gentler and more reasonable-sounding way. He perfectly illustrated this tone in a speech to a Cleveland Right to Life convention last month, in which he urged audience members to invite gay people into their homes and families … as a way to show them that they don’t need marriage rights.

Holding up the model of “crisis pregnancy centers,” which attempt to dissuade women from seeking abortions, Anderson asked what “the functional equivalent” would be “for people with same-sex attractions.”

“The question is going to be, if we’re not in favor of same-sex marriage, what are we in favor of for people with same-sex attractions and how are we helping them live out their vocations?” he asked.

He noted the work of groups like Courage, the Catholic organization that counsels gay people to remain chaste, but said that individuals also have a role to play.

“There’s a universal human desire for friendship, for companionship,” he said. “We all have a need for relationships that matter. So when Thanksgiving comes around, when Christmas comes around, are you inviting a same-sex attracted colleague or friend or member of your church who isn’t married and doesn’t have a family of his or her own, are you inviting them into your family to share Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas dinner? Are you having them be big brother or big sister, godfather or godmother to your children if they’re not going to be married and have children of their own? Are there ways in which we can show that there are other forms of community that matter, that are important, that are meaningful, without having to redefine marriage?”

Referring to the last lines of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in the Obergefell marriage equality case, Anderson said, “This is now an opportunity for people who believe the truth about marriage to show that Justice Kennedy is wrong, that we can meet people’s real needs without redefining what marriage is.”

Bryan Fischer Says Tenn. Gov. Is 'Doing The Devil's Work' By Vetoing Bible Legislation

Yesterday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam vetoed a bill that would have made the Bible the state's official book and American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program today by declaring that, in doing so, Haslam "was doing the devil's work."

Citing Psalm 119, Fischer said that studying the Bible "imparts understanding to the simple," which is why Satan is "so intent on keeping the word of God out of our public school system."

Fischer said that Haslam and Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, who recently vetoed legislation that would have allowed the Bible to be used in public school instruction, were both doing the work of the devil.

Otter and Haslam, Fischer said, were cooperating "with the agenda of Satan, who hates the Bible, [who] hates the word of God."

Did Satanic Giants Build Stonehenge?

Televangelist Jim Bakker invited Dr. Dennis Lindsay on to his program on Wednesday to discuss Lindsay’s latest discovery in the realm of Creation Science: the truth behind Stonehenge.

Hold on to your hats: Stonehenge, it turns out, was built by giants who were created by Satan.

Lindsay told Bakker that these giants were tools of the devil, who seeks to destroy Israel because “he’s out to destroy God’s creation and his whole plan of redemption and contaminate the human race.”

But Satan wants to “have his own seed and make his own family,” Lindsay explained, and so he created a race of giants who would attack Israel.

“He build his little squatter’s hut up there on the Temple Mount, you know that temple, because he knows what the Bible says about that place,” he said. “I weaved through why and what is the evidence for giant beings on this earth. We all know about Stonehenge, right? That’s just one of hundreds and hundreds of gigantic places around the world that testify that some sort of supernatural power or giants were involved in its construction.”

People Who Love Ted Cruz Assure Us 'He Is One Of The Most Likeable People You Will Ever Meet'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck sat down with Drew Ryun, political director of the pro-Ted Cruz Trusted Leadership super PAC, where they assured everyone that the notoriously universally hated Republican presidential candidate is actually really nice and funny and well-liked.

Young people, in particular, love Cruz, Ryun asserted, because "he is one of the most likeable people you will ever meet" and "he resonates with them."

Beck was in complete agreement, saying that young people on his staff are constantly telling him that Cruz "is the nicest guy [they have] ever seen, and funny."

In a Washington Post poll released yesterday, 50 percent of young adults and 53 percent of voters overall had an unfavorable opinion of Cruz.

'Constitutional Sheriffs' Ask Candidates To Vow To Defy Health Care, Gun Laws

The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, an association of county sheriffs who believe that they have the power to resist federal laws and arrest federal officials who they believe are violating the Constitution, is attempting to get more sheriffs who adhere to its ideology elected by launching a candidate survey that asks under what circumstances candidates for sheriff would be willing to buck the federal government.

In one survey question, CSPOA asks potential sheriffs what they would do if they were ordered to “cite or arrest” citizens who refuse to participate in “nationalized healthcare,” a question that appears to be based on the myth that those who refuse to buy a health insurance plan or pay a fee will be put in jail:

Congress has just recently passed nationalized healthcare. It appears that all citizens will be required by “law” to participate in this federal healthcare regulation. If citizens in your jurisdiction refuse to accept or use this federal program and you are ordered to cite or arrest such “troublemakers,” what will you do?

a. Warn my citizens ahead of time to make sure they all use federal healthcare to prevent any of them from going to jail for failure to comply.

b. Help federal agents serve warrants on anyone and everyone who might be found violating the healthcare laws in my county/parish.

c. I will serve any court order and enforce all laws, regardless of my personal feelings about such laws.

d. I will never enforce any such law or serve any warrants from any court to arrest citizens for refusing to participate in any federal program; not for healthcare or anything else. In fact, I will stand next to my constituents and put myself on the line to protect them from such abuse.

Another question asks what candidates would do if the federal government or the UN launched “door to door gun confiscation”:

If the Federal Government or the United Nations were to implement a policy of door to door gun confiscation in your jurisdiction, what would you do?

a. Help them confiscate the guns.

b. Interpose myself on behalf of the people to protect their right to keep and bear arms.

c. Not interfere one way or the other. A sheriff has no authority to stop the Federal Government from doing anything.

d. I don't worry about such a scenario as this would never happen in America

Although CSPOA’s head, former Sheriff Richard Mack, said he opposed the anti-government occupation of a wildlife refuge in Oregon this year, the occupiers were influenced by CSPOA’s ideas and Mack has been using the standoff to rally support for his group.

PFAW Hosts Member Telebriefing on the Democracy Awakening

As thousands of activists from around the country head to Washington, DC for the Democracy Awakening, a weekend of marches, rallies, workshops, lobby visits, and – for some – nonviolent civil disobedience, PFAW hosted a member telebriefing Thursday about the upcoming mobilization. Through the Democracy Awakening, Americans are demanding that Congress take action to fix our democracy, from protecting voting rights to getting big money out of politics to giving the president’s Supreme Court nominee fair consideration.

“These are all connected issues,” PFAW Executive Vice President Marge Baker said on the call. She emphasized that auctioning off democracy “to the highest bidder,” suppressing the vote, or obstructing justice through Republican senators’ “absurd and totally indefensible” position that President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee shouldn’t be given fair consideration are all threats to our democracy.

“We have to take back the engines of our government for the American people,” Baker said.

PFAW Government By the People Campaign Manager Rio Tazewell outlined the schedule for the weekend and noted that even people who can’t travel to DC can still take action in their own towns through letters to the editor, contacting elected representatives, and taking action on social media.

You can listen to the full telebriefing below, and visit www.democracyawakening.org for more information:

Alex Jones: GOP's Treatment Of Donald Trump 'Makes Jim Crow Look Like A Blessing'

Earlier this week, Donald Trump’s confidant Roger Stone appeared on “The Alex Jones Show” to discuss developments in the GOP presidential primary race, including the news that CNN and MSNBC have banned him from making appearances on their networks.

“It’s something you would expect from the Nazis,” Stone said of the decision by the networks. “First we’re banning people, then we’re banning books, then we’re banning movies, next thing you know we’re burning books.”

“Then we’re burning people,” Jones added.

Jones, steamed about the results of the GOP Colorado nominating contest, said that the delegate-selection process in Colorado “makes Jim Crow look like a blessing.”

David Daleiden's Mentor Admits Daleiden 'Made Some Mistakes' Legally

Attorneys for David Daleiden, the activist who led the undercover smear campaign against Planned Parenthood last year, are trying to get a grand jury indictment of him dismissed in Texas, claiming that it was politically motivated. But Daleiden’s mentor, who has conducted many of his own sham investigations of abortion providers, acknowledged at an anti-abortion conference last month that the young activist “made some mistakes” that might have led him to run afoul of the law.

Mark Crutcher heads a group called Life Dynamics, which pioneered some of the undercover tactics that Daleiden used to go after Planned Parenthood and conducted a similar debunked investigation involving abortion providers’ handling of fetal tissue in the late 1990s. He has also trained right-wing activists James O’Keefe and Lila Rose, is now training what he hopes will be “a whole army of David Daleidens” to infiltrate abortion providers across the country.

Crutcher spoke last month at a conference sponsored by Cleveland Right to Life, where he said that his training efforts meant that he would have “at least 100 professional intel operatives” in abortion providers ty the end of the year.

At the end of Crutcher’s presentation, the event moderator, referring to the indictment of Daleiden by a grand jury that had been convened to investigate his claims about Planned Parenthood, asked Crutcher why “it seems like the good guys are getting indicted and the bad guys are getting away.”

Crutcher responded that he always trains his staff and students how to get what they want without breaking the law, but that Daleiden didn’t listen to all of his advice.

“I’m not going to get into details about this,” he said, “but David made some mistakes that we warned him about. Renee [Hobbs] and I were on the phone with him for many, many hours over the years that he was doing this, but David got caught up in youthful exuberance. And I tried to tell him, I said, ‘David, you’re making some mistakes here and that’s going to cost you.’ I said, ‘And youthful exuberance always loses out to old age and treachery, and I’m old and treacherous, so I’ve been down this trail.’ But he made some mistakes, and I don’t want to get into the details of that.”

“What you have to understand, this is an argument that I tried to get over to David: Anything that you want to do in an intelligence-gathering environment that’s illegal, you can find a way to do it legally,” he added.

Allen West Is Ready To Be Vice President

Former one-term Florida Tea Party congressman Allen West is ready to stand up and serve his country as the Republican vice presidential nominee, he told talk radio host Jeffrey Kuhner on Wednesday.

When Kuhner asked West if he would every consider running for president himself, West responded that it’s “just not my nature as a soldier” to go out “seeking political office” (an odd statement coming from someone who has run for Congress three times), but “my nature as a soldier is to serve and to step up when my country needs me, so I’m standing by.”

“I’m always ready to, if the American people need me back, I’m here, I’m ready to go,” he said.

Kuhner asked if that means he’d be willing to run for vice president if the Republican nominee asked him; West responded that if God and his wife were okay with it, he was in.

“If God is approving and my wife and my two daughters are of approval, then I would say, ‘You’ve got your guy and let’s get at it,’” he said.

Kamal Saleem: Liberals, Gays, Socialists And Islamists Working Together To Destroy Civilization

Yesterday, Alex Jones spoke with Kamal Saleem, whose fanciful tales about serving as an Islamic terrorist have been roundly discredited, about what Saleem sees as an alliance of Islamists, liberals, socialists, fascists, gay rights supporters and abortion rights advocates who are working together to create a one-world government that will throw the world into the End Times.

Saleem told Jones that “the isms are coming together: Islamism, socialism, secularism, fascism, liberalism, secularism, all of them are part of the ism movement for the Last Days and they are united together for a one-world order” and “world government.”

Saleem, who appeared to be reading off a list of talking points throughout the interview, said that the “New World Order” is targeting Christians and Jews by trying to “take God and prayers out of education system, reduce parental authority over children, destroy the traditional Christian family structure, if sex is free then abortion should be legal and free, make divorce applicable to everybody so marriage has no value, homosexuality to be alternative lifestyle, debase art and make it to run man, use media to promote and change mindsets.”

“InfoWars” is a perfect place for Saleem to offer his analysis of current events.

Saleem predicted that at the beginning of 2013, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would impose a “hate crime bill which will subjugate American people to be arrested and put to jail and their churches and synagogues shut down” and “break the First Amendment and Second Amendment.”

President Obama, Saleem says, will invite ISIS terrorists into America to commit terrorist attacks in order for him to “establish martial law” and stay in office indefinitely.

He has also claimed that the White House established an Islamic “shadow government” that is in part led by a non-existent Obama family babysitter: “Our President’s babysitter wears abaya and keffiyeh just like those ninjas, you don’t see her face everything is covered, that’s the babysitter of his children.”

Christian, Jewish and business leaders, according to Saleem, are all pushing the Islamist agenda, and now there are even many U.S. generals “who swore to destroy the United States of America.”

In addition, Saleem says that the Roe v. Wade ruling was made to usher in Sharia law.

Saleem has also alleged that while Obama was in Hawaii on Christmas, he secretly attended a mosque in Washington D.C., and that very soon “terrorism will be legal” thanks to immigration reform and “we’ll be wearing ragheads.”
