Edit Memo: Responses from Republican Presidential Candidates, Former and Current Elected Officials and their Far Right Base to President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration

To: Interested Parties

Re:  Responses from Republican Presidential Candidates, Former and Current Elected Officials and their Far Right Base to President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration

On May 19, President Obama’s executive action on immigration that would have protected millions of undocumented parents from deportation were set to go into effect. But because Republican politicians have – for now – blocked the programs in the courts, the action is on hold.

While Obama’s executive actions on immigration keep children and families from being deported for no other reason than their undocumented status, Republicans see these actions as “treasonous”, putting us at risk of “civil war.” People For the American Way has documented the extremity of the responses from Republicans and their far right base to the immigration executive actions.

Called Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration “a cynical attempt to change the topic.” [Bloomberg, 11/20/14]

Sen. Rand Paul

Equated President Obama’s immigration action with internment camps for the Japanese: “Think of what happened in World War II where they made the decision. The president issued an executive order. He said to Japanese people, ‘We’re going to put you in a camp. We’re going to take away all your rights and liberties and we’re going to intern you in a camp.’ We shouldn’t allow that much power to gravitate to one individual.” [MSNBC, 11/12/14]

Sen. Marco Rubio

Declared that he “would love to defund the immigration order.” [America’s Voice, 12/15/14]

Commenting on the executive actions, said: “The president has acted like a tyrant and he has acted against the Constitution and he has thrown the Republicans and he has thrown the country a curveball, we’ve never dealt with anything like this before…That has to be not just backing Republicans in a corner, it’s backing Americans in a corner of a president who thinks he is above the law and above the Constitution.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/21/14]

Current and Former GOP Elected Officials

Rep. Steve King (IA)

In a conversation about responding to the President’s immigration executive actions, Steve King said, “there’s probably no better time to fight than now and no better time to risk a government shutdown than now.” [Right Wing Watch, 12/10/14]

Said executive action by President Obama providing deportation relief for some undocumented immigrants living in the United States would perhaps irrevocably destroy “our constitutional republic” by turning the United States into a “lawless third-world nation” and Obama into a “king.” Said the “I-word” (impeachment”) “is on the table because our republic is on the table.” [Right Wing Watch, 10/22/14]

Rep. Mo Brooks (AL)

Suggested Congress should pass a contempt citation against the president for his “reckless conduct,” because then Obama would drop his executive actions since he, like Richard Nixon, wouldn’t want to “incur the wrath that comes with a contempt citation with potential fines and jail time.” [Right Wing Watch, 2/3/15]

Said the executive actions are part of a plot to “dilute the vote of American citizens by bringing in millions of foreigners who are going to be dependent on welfare and handouts and hence will be dependent on the Democratic Party for their livelihoods.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/24/14]

Stated, "At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president's conduct aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States…That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it." [Talking Points Memo, 11/20/14]

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach

Around the time that Obama announced his executive actions, Kobach claimed it’s possible that a Hispanic majority in the U.S. could conduct an “ethnic cleansing.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/20/14]

Sen. Tom Coburn (OK)

Predicted that because of the President’s executive actions, “you're going to see — hopefully not — but you could see instances of anarchy. ... You could see violence.” [USA Today, 11/20/14]

Rep. Trent Franks (AZ)

Asserted that Obama’s immigration executive actions “literally could be the death of the Republic.” [Right Wing Watch, 12/3/14]

Rep. Lamar Smith (TX)

Said the “extreme fringe of the Democratic Party” supports executive action because it “wants to treat those from other countries better than we treat our own American citizens” and ultimately is “banking” on the votes of new immigrants. [Right Wing Watch, 11/18/14]

Rep. Walter Jones (NC)

Claimed that Republicans have “constitutional duty” to impeach Obama because of his immigration actions. [Right Wing Watch, 2/11/15]

Maryland County Council Member and Christian Reconstructionist Michael Peroutka

Asserted that Obama’s immigration action “certainly is an act of treason because it’s aiding and abetting the enemies of America and giving them comfort and aid.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/21/14]

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN)

Said that if President Obama were to take executive action to prevent the deportation of some undocumented immigrants living in the United States, his goal would be to “flood our nation with millions of sure-thing Democrat [sic] voters” who would rely on “the United States government as their source of supply.” [Right Wing Watch, 10/31/14]

Former Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst

Referring to the “tsunami of unaccompanied children,” and the President’s executive actions, Dewhurst said, “If we don’t stop the bad guys at the border, they’re going to be in your hometown tomorrow.” [Right Wing Watch, 9/26/14]

Former VA Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli

Said that America is being “invaded” by immigrants “one person at a time” and that President Obama is guilty of “encouraging the invasion” with his executive actions. [Right Wing Watch, 3/6/15]

Stated that the president’s immigration announcement will provoke “an incredible cry from the American people” so that Republicans won’t even “need to talk about it.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/19/14]

Far Right Leaders

Conservative Activist Phyllis Schlafly

Said Obama’s executive action on immigration resembles the Southern bombardment of Fort Sumter, which led to the beginning of the Civil War, adding that the move is even more inscrutable than Pearl Harbor bombing because “with Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/20/14]

Speaking about the executive actions, stated: “It’s just an outrage, and it does spell the death of probably the country.” [Right Wing Watch, 12/3/14]

Obama’s executive actions would lead to “suicide for America because he would be bringing in people who will vote Democratic…I think it’s worth impeachment.” [Right Wing Watch, 11/17/14]

Author and Radio Host Michael Savage

Connected President Obama’s executive action on immigration reform back to Adolf Hitler’s implementation of his Lebensraum policies. [Right Wing Watch, 11/21/14]

Said immigration actions amount to “criminal activity” that should trigger an attempt by Republicans to arrest the president “for usurping the Constitution and Congress.”  Added that the actions would be “a treasonous act against the American people,” for which he could “then be arrested and tried for treason.”  [Right Wing Watch, 10/23/14]

Head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), William Gheen

Recommended that sheriffs “arrest the president of the United States” because of the executive actions. [Right Wing Watch, 11/20/14]

Stated, "As Americans loyal to our Republic, flag, and the Constitution, we are required to rebel en mass against any enemy foreign or domestic that attempts to destroy our nation from within as Obama is attempting to do by decreeing amnesty for millions of illegals!" [ALIPAC, 11/19/14]

Said the President must have taken executive action on immigration to start a race war. [Right Wing Watch, 11/19/14]

“Infowars” Host and Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones

Said of the executive actions: “This really is the end of the republic, the end of Congress… We are going the way of Rome bringing in the giant third-world populations, and it seems to be an accelerated collapse-of-Rome timetable now.” [Right Wing Watch, 12/3/14]

Anti-Muslim Activist Pamela Geller

Talk Show Host Rush Limbaugh

Said the executive actions are meant to “open the flood gates to the third world.” [Media Matters, 11/21/14]

Right-Wing Summit Raises Jade Helm 15 Fears

Al Ringgenberg, an Iowa Republican politician and retired Air Force colonel, addressed Saturday’s Iowa National Security Action Summit alongside GOP figures such as Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, who sent a video message to the event.

When an audience member asked Ringgenberg about the right-wing Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theory, wanting his thoughts on whether the U.S. military is using closed Walmart stores as part of a nefarious federal government plot in the South, Riggenberg did not dismiss her fears about the training exercises.

Ringgenberg said that the Jade Helm 15 training exercises “raises — I’ve got a couple of hairs left here in the back of my neck — and they stand up a little bit because as a lawyer I know, no, U.S. military forces are not supposed to be operating inside of the United States.”

“Like you, I want to know what the hell is going on,” he said.

The drill in question is a routine training exercise but has raised fears among the far-right that President Obama is planning an invasion of Texas and priming people for martial law.

Pat Robertson: US 'Helpless' Against ISIS Because We've 'Given Up' On Christianity

Televangelist Pat Robertson said on his “The 700 Club” program this morning that the U.S. is “helpless” against ISIS because the country has given up “the founding principle of America, which is Christianity, a belief in the Bible, a belief in God Almighty.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a great country,” he said. “We’ve got over 300 million people in America, we have the most powerful armed forces in the world, there’s nothing that can even come close to our strength, we have tremendous strength. And why should we be afraid of a few dozen nutty radicals wandering around in pickup trucks? But we are, because somehow or another we’ve lost the ethic, the élan if you will, that has drawn us together as a nation. We give up the founding principle of America, which is Christianity, a belief in the Bible, a belief in God Almighty. And we’ve given that up. We’re helpless.”

“And so it’s reflected in the fact that these crazy fanatics could come loose in small segments of the population and do terror,” he said, referring to the ISIS-inspired Americans who tried to attack an anti-Islam event in Texas. “Well, what could they do? They could put a bomb in and they can go for a radiological bomb, they can go for a dirty bomb, and one day they may even be able to import a real nuke, which could do terrible damage.

“So, it’s like your body. If your body is strong, if your immune system is strong, you don’t get disease. Your body is strong enough to overcome the diseases. It’s only when your immune system is weakened and your body is weakened that these diseases can take you. Our body should be strong, and if it’s strong it should be strong, nurtured, with the knowledge of our founding fundamental freedoms, the knowledge of what the history of our country is and especially the knowledge of God, the knowledge of the Bible. That’s what made this country strong. You give all that up, well, the inner man, the immune system, gets weak, and it’s subject to attack by little viruses like this thing that’s coming along.”

Robertson then declared that President Obama “refuses to acknowledge that ISIS is a problem” and attacked Obama and President Bush for refusing “to acknowledge that Islam is not peaceful.”
 

GOP Rep: DREAMers Serving In Military Will Lead To 'Decline Of Western Civilization'

Rep. Dave Brat, the Virginia Republican who unseated Rep. Eric Cantor last year thanks in large part to his uncompromising anti-immigrant politics, told talk radio host John Fredericks yesterday that a proposal to allow DREAM Act-eligible immigrants to enlist in the military represents the “decline of Western Civilization.”

Discussing the House’s narrow vote to strip the proposal from a Pentagon spending bill last week, Fredericks asked Brat, “What’s going on out there?”

“Well, what’s going on is the decline of Western Civilization at the highest level,” Brat responded. “I think everybody knows their old Roman history, part of the reason Rome fell was because they started hiring the barbarians in, otherwise known as the Germans at the time, to be troops in their own army, and that led to their eventual downfall.”

Brat also had a response to proponents of the measure who pointed out that being willing to serve in the U.S. military shows a certain level of patriotism: “I wanted to stand up and shout, I mean ISIS is willing to serve in our military as well.”

Later in the conversation, Brat compared allowing undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children to serve in the military to requiring President Obama to hire Republicans to serve in the White House, a nonsensical comparison for a number of reasons, including that President Obama is in charge of both the military and the White House:

It is an Orwellian situation where language is upside-down. I told some of the guys on our side last night, just as a joke, I mean, if the illegal aliens are so talented that they should take the slots of our military heroes, why not just start out and hire them to work for the White House? And that kind of reverses the humor, right? I mean, if these folks are so good and so patriotic, you know, hire them in the White House.

And even better, just so we’re equal opportunity, I would suggest they hire all Republicans, and so let someone else pick who will work for you in the White House. And if Mr. Obama thinks that’s a reasonable proposition, at least we’re on the same Orwellian footing.

Chuck Norris: 'Obama Has Literally Helped Build The Environment For The Apocalypse'

Chuck Norris, who warned of “1,000 years of darkness” if President Obama won his 2012 re-election campaign, writes today that “Obama has literally helped build the environment for the Apocalypse, as defined by both Muslims and Christians.”

Norris tells WorldNetDaily readers in his weekly column that it is “difficult to believe that a single president could make more international Middle East fiascos in a few short years.” (Really?)

According to Norris, the president is bringing Muslim refugees into the U.S. and encouraging undocumented immigrants to commit voter fraud in order to “ensure a 2016 win for the Democratic Party presidential nominee.”

As if President Obama hasn’t made enough wrong moves, now, he’s going to finish his presidency casting a wide net of amnesty and carting illegals into every American community with virtually no regard for safety in doing so. But he does have one thing in mind for certain: creating new voters in every state to ensure a 2016 win for the Democratic Party presidential nominee.

First, the Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, sent letters to all 9,000,000 green-card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election.

PJ Media reported how it “obtained an internal ‘Dear Colleague’ letter written by Leon Rodriguez, the ‘director and co-chair of the Task Force on New Americans.’ The letter refers to a White House report called ‘Strengthening Communities by Welcoming All Residents.’” PJM added: “Leon Rodriguez has a tainted history – not only was he a central player in the radicalization of Eric Holder’s Civil Rights Division, he also ‘undertook a purportedly illegal search‘ of a government employee’s computer in Montgomery County, Maryland. (Messy details are at the Washington Post.)”

The Rodriguez’s letter states: “This report outlines an immigrant integration plan that will advance our nation’s global competitiveness and ensure that the people who live in this country can fully participate in their communities.”

Of course, “fully participate” is code for granting voting rights and specifically re-electing a Democrat president.



Their strategy is to “seed your communities” with at least 70,000 refugees a year, including Iraqis, Burmese, Bhutanese, Somalis, Cubans, Syrians and others. And the numbers of Syrians, mostly Muslim, will surpass them all.



It’s difficult to believe that a single president could make more international Middle East fiascos in a few short years: miscalculating the Arab spring, empowering the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, failing to protect Americans in Benghazi, enabling ISIS through the complete withdraw of troops from Iraq, remaining aloof to our ally Israel, and then being calloused and obtuse with persecuted Coptic Christians. Indeed, as I just wrote in a former column, Obama has literally helped build the environment for the Apocalypse, as defined by both Muslims and Christians.

Bobby Jindal Says Obama Isn't Killing ISIS Leaders ... The Same Day As US Kills ISIS Leader

Earlier today, the U.S. killed a top leader of the so-called Islamic State, one of many ISIS leaders killed by a U.S.-led coalition targeting the terrorist group.

However, Louisiana governor and likely presidential candidate Bobby Jindal told the Iowa National Security Action Summit today that President Obama has been weak on ISIS and suggested that he won't target the group's leaders.

After suggesting that Muslim clerics are refusing to condemn ISIS, another dubious claim, Jindal challenged Obama to "do his job" and "hunt down and kill these terrorists."

Trump: Under Obama, Only Muslim Immigrants Allowed Into America

Today at the Iowa National Security Action Summit, an attendee asked Donald Trump what he thinks is "the most prominent lie that the American public is being propagandized in regards to national security." Trump responded by arguing that Obamacare "was a total lie," before saying that "Muslims can come in but other people can't; Christians can't come into this country but Muslims can."

"Something has got to be coming down from the top," Trump said. "Muslims can come in but Christians can't, and the Muslims aren't in danger but the Christians are."

Earlier in the speech, Trump said that he learned this "fact" from fellow summit speaker Ann Corcoran, an activist who believes President Obama is "literally swapping out the people" of the US through Muslim immigration, which she believes should be banned.

Ben Carson: Baltimore Strife 'Not A Racial Issue' Since The Mayor Is Black

While speaking today at the Iowa National Security Action Summit, Ben Carson warned that nefarious forces trying to bring about “fundamental change” are sparking racial strife throughout the country.

“You look at situations that occurred in Baltimore and some of our other cities and they tried to make those into racial issues, Carson saidBut Baltimore has a black mayor, it has a black police commissioner, most of the police officers are members of minorities, so that’s not a racial issue.

He blamed the recent strife in the city on agitators and “purveyors of discord,” saying that the city’s problems can be solved through a mix of tax breaks and deregulation.

Ben Carson: Anti-American Spirit Within Obama Administration

Today at the Iowa National Security Action Summit, an event organized by right-wing conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson delivered a vague speech about how divisive political rhetoric is undermining the country’s security.

Naturally, when a member of the audience told Carson that there is a “strong anti-American spirit that is undermining everything that we stand for” within the Obama administration, Carson told him that he was “absolutely right.”

Carson said that even before President Obama took office, the U.S. government was turning against the American people and recommended that people read far-right author W. Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.”

As Alexander Zaitchick notes, Skousen argued that a cabal of wealthy globalists bent on creating a one-world government has infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. and the Soviet Union.

“This has been going on long before this administration, though, this has been going on for 30, 40, 50 years, it’s called the progressive agenda,” Carson said. “There’s a book called 'The Naked Communist ' by Cleon Skousen, it was written in 1958, and it goes through the agenda they have here to fundamentally change our country, and I recommend that book because you would think it was written last year. But I believe that this is well orchestrated and the thing that they need in order to finally achieve their goal is for people with common sense to keep their mouths shut. And that’s what we can’t do, we have to stand up for what we believe in.”

Louie Gohmert: Allowing DREAMers In Military Would Have Been Very Rude To Texas Judge

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, is outraged that Congress nearly approved a Defense Department spending bill that included a provision encouraging the military to allow undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children to enlist. Gohmert told talk radio host Greg Garrison today that provision, which was stripped from the bill in a narrow vote yesterday, would have been a “slap” at the U.S. district court judge in Texas who has placed a hold on President Obama’s executive actions deferring deportation for some undocumented immigrants.

Gohmert praised Judge Andrew Hanen, who is known as one of the most conservative federal judges in the country, for “singlehandedly stopping the illegal, unconstitutional amnesty,” and declared that it would have been “just totally inappropriate to slap him after he was being such a stand-up man for the Constitution.”

Can you imagine if you’re the U.S. district judge in the Southern District of Texas that’s single-handedly stopping the illegal, unconstitutional amnesty, and then you have the House of Representatives, not only with not enough guts to stop the illegal amnesty like they promised, but then turn around and slap the one judge that’s acting constitutionally? I mean, that would have been such an outrage, and I’m glad we were able to beat that back yesterday.

...

This was even more egregious because it was slapping in the face the one stand-up judge who stood against the illegal amnesty while Republicans in Congress were breaking their promise that we’d stop the illegal amnesty. Our leadership didn’t stand on their promises as they promised, but we had a judge that did the right thing by the Constitution, and it was just totally inappropriate to slap him after he was being such a stand-up man for the Constitution.

Craig James: LGBT Community's Intolerance 'Is Going To Kill America'

Family Research Council official Craig James guest-hosted the organization’s “Washington Watch” program yesterday, where he chatted with Texas conservative activist Jonathan Saenz about how an anti-gay bill failed in Texas legislature in part due to opposition from the Texas Association of Business.

James criticized the business group, claiming that the fight over the legislation “highlights how fearful business owners are of the blowback from the LGBT community and from folks who feel like we should be all tolerant and loving and accepting of everything.”

James, who works for one of the nation’s most virulently anti-LGBT groups, whose leaders (including James) have described gays rights as a tool of the Devil, defended Uganda’s kill-the-gays bill, called for an anti-gay revolution and urged the government to export gay people from the country, told Saenz that the LGBT community needs to show more civility or America will be lost.

“It’s the one-way street that is going to kill America,” James said. “This country has had a two-lane highway forever, both sides had the freedom to believe. Civility is gone. We’re haters if we think otherwise. What’s wrong with this country?”

Later in the program, a caller said that “we are being punished” by God because “the conservative ones of America have been silent for too long” and “part of that punishment is that we’ve been straddled in this country with a President Obama.”

His claim was met with hearty amens from James, who thanked the caller for his “great wisdom.” James warned that “the slippery slope is on right now and coming here in a few weeks, we’ll hear from the Supreme Court about the definition of marriage. If they try to redefine marriage and force that on all the states and all the people, that’s coming down the lane at us.”

Texas Activist: People Moving To Texas Because It Banned Gay Marriage

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Jonathan Saenz of the Religious Right group Texas Values criticized state lawmakers for failing to vote on a proposal that would have invalidated several LGBT nondiscrimination measures passed by cities throughout the state.

In particular, Saenz denounced the Texas Association of Business, which opposed the measures and said “they would devastate economic development, tourism and the convention business.”

Saenz said that the business lobby offered “absurd” reasons to “oppose religious freedom efforts,” adding that members would be “shocked” if they knew about the organization’s “extreme,” “far-left” leadership.

Laws against LGBT equality, Saenz said, “have helped Texas and have been a part of what makes Texas great. You see flocking from New York and California because of our business climate but it’s also a part of the values that we have. So this type of war on values from the Texas Association of Business within our state has got to end.”

Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum similarly told a Texas Values gathering last year that people are leaving states that “embrace homosexual marriage” for Texas. Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly has also claimed that “many Americans are dissenting with their feet” and moving to states that ban gay marriage.

GOP Rep: Obama Must Officially 'Declare War On The Concept Of Terror'

Last month, Ohio Republican Rep. Bill Johnson stopped by “The Tom Roten Morning Show,” where he said that just as many did not grasp the Nazi threat in the run-up to World War II, the Obama administration is ignoring the dangers posed by terrorist groups today.

The congressman’s solution? Issuing a formal declaration of war against “the concept of terror.”

“The same thing is happening now when we are denying that we are at war with terror,” Johnson said. “If I were the president, I would be declaring war on terror. I’m talking about formally, having Congress do it. That is not declaring war on a nation but it is declaring war on the concept of terror.”

He also claimed that violent groups like ISIS which claim to represent Islam are the only true Muslims : “Islam has morphed over the last thousand years as it has tempered its violent tendencies. What we are seeing in ISIS is actually going all the way back 1,000 years to the ideology that Mohammad advocated. That’s the way they did things.”

Paranoia-Rama: Sharia Law In Walmart, Satan Controls Marijuana And Gays Destroying The Food Supply

While President Obama is bringing in thousands of Muslim refugees who will impose Sharia law in Walmart stores, gay people are provoking God into punishing America through drought and famine. But don’t look to pot to calm you down, as it is simply a tool that Satan will use to devour you.

Alan Keyes: Obama Is A Serial Killer In The Mold Of Hitler And Stalin

Reflecting on his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign against Barack Obama, Alan Keyes writes in WorldNetDaily today that it was during that race that he became convinced that Obama is “a hardline socialist ideologue, in the ruthless, self-worshiping mold Hitler and Stalin had in common.”

“I thought then that opportunity was all he lacked to be their equals in atrocity,” Keyes writes of Obama. “I am even more certain of it now. For he and all those who collaborate with him have been working hard to supply that deficiency, and they are close to their goal.”

Keyes writes that he was not proud to see Obama elected president, just as he wouldn’t be proud to see “a serial killer elected president just because his skin wasn’t white.” He notes that “comparing Obama to a serial killer” isn’t so far off since modern history “offers ample proof that government officials who conform themselves to evil ideologies are more than likely to produce death tolls so massive that no word or phrase truly expresses the enormity of their crimes.”

“I survey the evidence of Obama’s years in office, and the pattern of activity that emerges confirms my longstanding premonition that, like the hardline socialists of the 20th century, he is a harbinger of death, including the tragic death of the conscience, prosperity and just premises of my country,” he adds, warning that Obama will soon use the Trans-Pacific Partnership “to rip the Second Amendment from the Constitution” and further “his importation of foreign cadre into the United States religiously or ideological committed to the destruction of our people, our unalienable rights and the freedoms (like freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion) without which we will be helpless to articulate and/or organize to defend those rights.”

When people who approach me as fellow “conservatives” ask me who I support or might support for president in the GOP primaries I immediately feel a mingled sense of irritation and anger. It reminds me of the way I felt in 2008 when media types asked me whether I felt proud to see Obama occupy the Oval Office. Would I feel proud to see a serial killer elected president just because his skin wasn’t white (or, more accurately, pink)? In that case I would regard even the temptation to feel pride as duress, which threatened the life of my soul.

Bridle if you like at the effrontery of comparing Obama to a serial killer. The 20th century offers ample proof that government officials who conform themselves to evil ideologies are more than likely to produce death tolls so massive that no word or phrase truly expresses the enormity of their crimes. What I learned about Obama as I prepared to run against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004 convinced me that he was a hardline socialist ideologue, in the ruthless, self-worshiping mold Hitler and Stalin had in common.

I thought then that opportunity was all he lacked to be their equals in atrocity. I am even more certain of it now. For he and all those who collaborate with him have been working hard to supply that deficiency, and they are close to their goal. His facile tolerance for the extermination of Christians and other non-Muslim populations in the Middle East (like the Yazidi) lends credibility to the suspicion that the fatal Benghazi debacle came to pass in the course of covert efforts to supply arms to anti-Syrian Muslims, including the religiously genocidal mass murderers in ISIS.

I survey the evidence of Obama’s years in office, and the pattern of activity that emerges confirms my longstanding premonition that, like the hardline socialists of the 20th century, he is a harbinger of death, including the tragic death of the conscience, prosperity and just premises of my country. The touted leaders of the GOP are supposed to be his opponents. When it suits their ambition for power, they make shift to sound like it. When it is likely to be of no effect, they even support bits and pieces of legislation they can point to as proof of their commitment to the things they were elected to champion and defend.

But like the show trials of the Stalin era, in what was then the Soviet Union, these bills are for show. Since Obama took office, what has actually come to pass, by the GOP’s action or inaction, has reflected, funded or tolerated a wholesale assault on the Constitution and laws of the United States. Now the GOP’s quisling leaders in Congress are working to assure passage of a trade deal that reportedly includes provisions that will give cover to Obama’s ongoing circumvention of the laws on immigration; his persistent will to rip the Second Amendment from the Constitution; and his importation of foreign cadre into the United States religiously or ideological committed to the destruction of our people, our unalienable rights and the freedoms (like freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion) without which we will be helpless to articulate and/or organize to defend those rights.

Jindal: 'Secularized America' Is Persecuting Conservative Christians

In an interview with Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway yesterday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal took advantage of a discussion of the attempted attack on an anti-Islam event in Garland, Texas, to bring up his favorite topic: how a secular America is persecuting conservative Christians.

He somehow managed to link the two topics by implying that liberals are not concerned enough about radical Islam and only think it’s okay to discriminate against Christians like Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson.

“In America, there used to be a time with the left, and the media even, celebrated diversity and tolerated free speech and religious liberty,” he said. “Simon, the sad truth is that’s no longer true. They tolerate anybody that agrees with them and nobody else.”

Criticizing President Obama for avoiding publicly linking terrorism with Islam, he claimed that liberals are being more lenient on terrorists than on evangelical Christians: “You saw this with Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty, he made some comments that they didn’t like, they wanted to get his show canceled on A&E, they wanted to get Duck Dynasty removed from A&E. The left doesn’t tolerate those that disagree with them anymore. Hollywood, the media elite, the left, they want us all to act, think, talk like them, and it starts with a secularized America. And it certainly does not allow you to call radical Islamic terrorism the problem.”

When Conway brought up the hubbub over Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ,” which drew the Religious Right’s ire when it was exhibited at a 1987 show that was partially sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, Jindal said that that episode disproved President Obama’s remarks about violent religious extremism during the Crusades. “Despite the president’s concern about medieval Christians and crusaders, I don’t recall there being violence at the time” of the Serrano incident, Jindal said.

“The only group, it seems like, that the left is willing to discriminate against today is evangelical Christians and others with traditional values and beliefs,” he concluded, citing cases of business owners sued for refusing service to gay and lesbian customers.

“I would think the left, even if they don’t share our Judeo-Christian heritage or views or beliefs, they would recognize in America, one of the great strengths in this country is the diversity and  the tolerance for others that disagree with them, and it’s sad to see their hypocrisy today,” he said.

Bradlee Dean Suggests Gay Marriage Will Lead To Another Holocaust

Riffing off Martin Niemöller’s famous Nazi-era “First They Came for the Socialists…” passage, Religious Right activist Bradlee Dean has posted his own poem on WorldNetDaily titled “And Then They Came For Marriage...

Dean writes that Supreme Court decisions striking down state-sponsored prayer in school, decriminalizing abortion and legalizing same-sex marriage will eventually lead to a Nazi-style holocaust of Christians.

When the hypocrites and accomplices to Adolf Hitler (Matthew 7:21-23) would sing praises to Jesus in the Protestant churches in Germany, they would sing louder to drown out the noise of the Jews, gypsies and dissidents that were crying out for help while they were being hauled off in cattle cars to concentration camps, or even worse, extermination camps (Psalm 78:9).



In fact, we could rewrite Niemöller’s quote quite well for today’s church leaders. It would probably go something like this:

First they came for prayer in school, and I did not speak out, because I was not a student. Nor did I ever look into the fact that the Supreme Court is not above the law (Article III, Section 1, of the United States Constitution (Ephesians 6:18)).

Then they came to murder the unborn in their mother’s womb, and I did not speak out, because I was not an unborn child. After all, I was told that the Supreme Court could sanction the murder of the innocent in the womb by simply calling it a woman’s choice (Proverbs 6:17). Then they came for marriage through the legalization of two men or two woman getting “married” to upend America’s sovereignty, and I did not speak out (as if to say the Supreme Court injustices have a God-given right to redefine what God Himself designed), because I did not want to be called a hater or a bigot (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, Romans 1:24).

Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me, because I never spoke out for anyone else (let alone God) (Ezekiel 3).

It is disgraceful what we are not seeing from the pulpits in America today. Rather than seeing a thunderous barrage of righteous indignation against murder of the unborn and zeal against tyranny, injustice and immorality, we are hearing virtually nothing from over 300,000 pulpits … silence (Zechariah 1:15).

We hear church leaders (1 Corinthians 12:28) say, “Well, I don’t speak out against anything political.” The murder of innocent children, political? Homosexual marriage, political? A corrupt, wicked and lawless administration that means to destroy your country and religious freedom, political?



Together, we can turn this destruction around, but if you choose to remain silent, don’t be surprised when they come for you and there is no one left to speak out. And at that point you can rest assured that others may sing loud enough to drown out your cries.

Anti-LGBT Groups: Girls Scouts Running A 'Dangerous' 'Social Engineering Experiment On Children'

The Religious Right has long been suspicious of the Girl Scouts, which activists have claimed turns girls into promiscuous, abortion-having lesbian socialists. Anti-Girl-Scout sentiment is on the rise yet again on the Right since the organization has announced that it will allow transgender girls to join the Scouts on “a case-by-case basis.” Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance has been making the rounds on conservative media, calling the policy a “slap in the face to Christian parents,” and a few petitions are circulating urging people to make their displeasure known to the organization.

CitizenGo, the international petition platform that the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown sits on the board of, is warning that the Girl Scouts are no longer merely “teaching girls that abortion and lesbianism are normal and admirable,” but are now running “a social engineering experiment on children”:

Although their cookies may be tasty, the Girl Scouts of America (GSA) has long promoted radical agendas, including teaching girls that abortion and lesbianism are normal and admirable. But now, they've gone even further to promote a sexual ideology to children.

In accordance with the new policy, the GSA website now reads, "If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."

In plain English, this means that families will be forced play gender make-believe and accept biological boys as girls. Boys in skirts and make-up, sharing tents with young vulnerable girls will now become an accepted part of the Girls Scouts program. This obviously puts children at risk and treats a recognized mental health problem as normative.

It's a tragedy that GSA leadership is willing to run a social engineering experiment on children, both the confused boys and the innocent girls wondering why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.

If you believe that the GSA has gone too far with normalizing a radical sexual ideology, please sign our petition to the Girl Scouts of America, telling them that the Girl Scouts program is for girls, period!

Meanwhile, the American Family Association and its affiliate One Million Moms, seem to have picked up some of the same talking points, warning that the Girl Scouts’ “dangerous policy” will “put young innocent girls at risk” by forcing them to associate with “[b]oys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents.”

Sign our petition to tell the Girl Scouts of America to stop this nonsense by rescinding this dangerous policy now!

The group says on its website, "If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."
This means girls in the organization will be forced to recognize and accept transgenderism as a normal lifestyle. Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk.

Adults are willing to experiment on our kids - both the boys who are confused and the girls who will wonder why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.

The Girl Scouts of America has lost its moral compass and needs your encouragement to rescind this new policy. Since 2003, bad policies like this have resulted in GSA's enrollment dropping by over one million girls, almost 27% of its membership.
 

Fringe Pastor: Obama Will Declare Himself President For Life, Take All Guns

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from pastor and unhinged right-wing conspiracy theorist Austin Miles, but he, like Michele Bachmann, thinks that President Obama has a lot in common with the pilot behind the crash of Germanwings flight 9525.

Miles writes in Renew America this week that just as Andreas Lubitz allegedly practiced the downing of the commercial airliner, Obama too has “conducted many rehearsals to prepare for the take-over which will be accomplished in the early part of November 2016.”

Then, Miles claims, Obama will “use Executive Order to declare himself president (dictator) for life,” which makes sense since, after all, “he is the one tool created by the Communist Party to destroy America.” The pastor also reports that gun massacres such as those that took place in Newtown, Connecticut, and Aurora, Colorado, were actually “purposely orchestrated” by the government in order to “disarm all Americans to retard resistance.”

But Obama, alas, will be a victim of his own success: “Obama has already rehearsed the nosedive of America to destruction. What he does not seem to realize, is that as millions of Americans die while the plane crashes, Obama will be among the dead. He is too blinded and stupid to consider that.”

So all that for nothing!

Lubitz was so determined to kill himself along with 150 passengers that he had a practice run on an earlier flight that same day, flying the same route. When the pilot left the cockpit to go to the restroom, Lubitz suddenly changed the instrument setting to create a gentle nose dive (yes, it worked), then pulled the plane back up and re-set the instruments. It was done so subtly that nobody including the pilot in the restroom, noticed the flight irregularity.



A similar tragedy is, at this moment, playing out in America. The cockpit is the Oval Office which guides our country to its destination. Sitting at the controls is Barrack Hussein Obama who, according to many reports (which includes photos), also possesses sexual confusion regarding straight and gay. He executes insane decisions with what appears to be a deliberate scheme to nosedive our country into oblivion.

Obama is not clinically insane but has been specifically programmed by his Communist handlers along with his Muslim allies to take America over the cliff. He is not dumb but a very useful idiot for the Communist Party ( Josef Stalin's description for those who help his cause). Obama is totally controlled as an authentic Manchurian Candidate.

Obama's importance to The Party is that he is the one tool created by the Communist Party to destroy America, the last country standing in the way of a Marxist-led One World Order. He was the handpicked candidate to bringing America down. This is precisely why he is he so important in history and remains so calm and poised in all situations.

Obama and the Party have conducted many rehearsals to prepare for the take-over which will be accomplished in the early part of November 2016. The first rehearsal was when the Communists and Muslims, who had deftly shoehorned their way into government offices by deceit and voter fraud, put him the Oval Office. He would not show his birth certificate, or any information about his real identity including his educational records which shows conclusively that he was here on a foreign student visa. All of that was sealed. With enough supportive power from those who had been slipped into government, all remained silent.



The final rehearsal will be the early part of November, 2016 when Obama intends to use Executive Order to declare himself president (dictator) for life.

The current powerful push to take guns away from all citizens is underway. This way the citizens can no longer defend their family's homes and property from armed invaders.



An Associated Press story today (5/10/15) has the headline: "Hundreds Rally for Gun Control" which is set in New York City. Leaders say it is absolutely necessary, that guns be outlawed. To do so now, they say, will protect us all from mass-killings (Columbine Aurora Theater, Connecticut School, Stockton, etc.) Yes, Outlawing gun ownership will stop this madness. Really?

This would mean that the only people who would have guns would be the murderers, thieves and dictators. There is no way they would obey the law to turn in their guns. What an advantage this would offer them! Then we would really be fish in a barrel.



First of all, I am convinced that these mass killings were purposely orchestrated for this very purpose, to disarm all Americans to retard resistance. Notice how the mentally ill (or just disturbed) perpetrated these shootings. They could easily be brainwashed into carrying out such deeds that would prove a point about private gun ownership and the threat to all families as a result. Then when Obama makes his move in 2016, he can waltz to the throne with no push back.

HOWEVER: These observable frantic moves have called citizens to action. It is buzzing on the internet (responses to news stories) how gun owners, in the millions, are locking and loading.

This is why our enemies are in panic mode to disarm every American. This is the same tactic used by Adolf Hitler, Lenin, Stalin and all Communist countries before effortlessly storming in and taking everyone into captive slavery.

Obama encourages sexual deviation, the closing of churches and the stomping and burning of the American Flag. He has managed to stir the people against one another, weakening us all, while our useless representatives simply sit and watch.

Obama has already rehearsed the nosedive of America to destruction. What he does not seem to realize, is that as millions of Americans die while the plane crashes, Obama will be among the dead. He is too blinded and stupid to consider that.

End Times Preacher: 'Perverted' Gays Bringing Divine Judgment On America

End Times radio host Rick Wiles appears to be upset that he has faced criticism for linking gay marriage to the California drought, food shortages and an imminent fireball from space, skewering the criticism on yesterday’s edition of “Trunews.”

While speaking with pastor John Kilpatrick about how God will punish Americans if the Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage, Wiles said that “the left-wing media has been mocking me for weeks because I equated the mega-drought with the sin of California and this nation, so they’re having a field day mocking me. But our food basket is being judged right now….The earth is judging us right now.”

“There will be a catering to that perverted sin and that perverted crowd,” Kilpatrick agreed, “there will be a catering to those people on a level that you can’t begin to imagine and also I think it’s going to bring judgment on the country, I believe it will bring judgment on the land.”

Kilpatrick also wondered why Americans are still supporting things like gay rights when they know they will invite God’s judgment: “Years ago, something would happen like an earthquake or something like that, big things happen, people would humble themselves and repent and they’d pray. But, man, nowadays you don’t hear people repenting and praying whenever you see these major things happening, now they refuse to repent and they just keep going headlong right into the face of judgment.”
