Theodore Shoebat: Hillary Clinton Is A Devil Worshipper Who Must Be Put To Death

In his latest video, extremist right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat declared that Hillary Clinton is a devil worshipper who wants to kill Christians and therefore must be put to death. 

Shoebat declared that Clinton is a "sick woman" and a "decrepit, reprobate wretch," but he couldn't quite bring himself to openly call her a "bitch" because "this is a family show," so instead he simply called her "a female dog."

She is probably also a lesbian, he asserted, and a devil worshipper. 

"The facts are the woman hates children," he said. "The facts are the woman loves homosexuality, so would it surprise me if it was confirmed, emphatically, that she is a sodomite? Would not surprise me in the least bit. The woman is a sick devil worshipper. She's a devil worshipper! It would not surprise me in the least bit that this woman goes into a dark room somewhere and worships the devil in front of an image of Baphomet."

Shoebat went on to praise Trump advisor Al Baldasaro for calling for Clinton to be shot for treason.

"That is what I have been saying for years in regards to evil people who ruin society with invidious beliefs, with dangerous and diabolical and deceptive beliefs," he said. "I have said that people who promote homosexuality should be put to death. I have said that people who promote witchcraft and occultism and yoga and all that demonic stuff should be put to death."

"Hillary Clinton is worthy of death," Shoebat proclaimed. "She supports the slaughtering of millions of American babies. She promotes homosexuality, which is against human life ... She would love to see the death of all Christians. I kid you not. Do not think for a second that that woman, if she had the chance, would [hesitate to] put people like me in concentration camps, would put Christians in concentration camps and kill Christians. I'm not saying that she'll succeed, but that's what she wants to do. What do you think she deserves? This type of woman, this evil, wicked woman, what do you think she deserves? She deserves the death penalty. End of story."

Shoebat and his father Walid were behind the baseless report that Khizr Khan, the father of a slain Muslim-American soldier who blasted Donald Trump in a speech at the Democratic National Convention last month, is a Muslim Brotherhood spy and that his late son was an Islamist terrorist; a claim that was widely promoted by Trump supporters and campaign surrogates. 

Joseph Farah: Obama May Seek Third Term By Indicting Hillary

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is obsessed with the conspiracy theory that President Obama intends to remain in office indefinitely, writing yet another column today in his signature just asking the question style about how Obama may remain president past his second term.

In the latest version of his claim, Farah alleges that Obama may have Hillary Clinton indicted over the relationship between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation after she wins the presidential election.

That way, he says, Obama “will create a constitutional crisis” and attempt to stay in the White House.

So what if – and it’s a big “if” – Obama is holding something back? Suppose he has actually authorized a probe of what she did as secretary of state to benefit herself and the Clinton Foundation.

Is it possible he might use the findings – and, believe me, they are not hard to find – to indict her between Election Day and Jan. 17, while he is still president?

If she is indicted on serious charges, she will not be permitted to take the oath of office. Neither will Tim Kaine be permitted to assume the office of the president because he will not yet be vice president.

The whole thing will create a constitutional crisis. The next in line, House Speaker Paul Ryan, will not be allowed to assume the presidency, either, because there is a sitting president.

If this admittedly unlikely and far-fetched scenario occurs, it will demonstrate that Obama has been planning it for quite some time. That’s why I’m telling you about the remote possibility now.

Had Hillary been indicted during the campaign, as she should have been, this whole scenario would not have been possible. The Democrats would have been forced to nominate another candidate – probably Bernie Sanders. Of course, we know the Democratic Party establishment would not have allowed that under any circumstances.

Think about it.

Norman Lear: Will Republican Leaders Show Decency and Stand Up to Trump?

This piece originally appeared as a guest column in The Hollywood Reporter.

Having just turned 94, I am aware that each day I spend as an American, in the company of loved ones, engaging with creative colleagues, and yes, swearing at the television news, is a gift. So maybe I owe Donald Trump, that human middle finger to the American Way, a bit of thanks for getting my heart pumping better than any exercise routine.

One benefit of having been around so long is that what may seem like ancient history is alive within me. Most of my fellow Americans do not personally remember World War II, in which the United States led the free world to defeat the forces of fascism in Europe and Asia. Like so many of my compatriots, I left college to enlist in that war. Unlike too many of them, I returned home safely after flying 52 combat missions. For that good fortune I can thank the Tuskegee airmen and others who flew escort and protected us during those bomb runs.

After the war, when I was a young writer hustling to make my way in show business, Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee were on a rampage, targeting political opponents, people in the arts, and ordinary Americans. One of the real American heroes, who stood up to those who were pretending to be, was Joseph Welch, chief counsel for the U.S. Army when it became a McCarthy target. After McCarthy used a public hearing to drag the name of a young lawyer through the mud, Welch challenged his cruelty and recklessness. And in words that expressed what so many felt but feared to say, Welch asked, “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

Those just might be the most famous words in American political history that were not uttered by a U.S. president. They didn’t change McCarthy, but they did help others find the strength to stand up to him.

The witch hunts and blacklists didn’t end overnight. One target was John Henry Faulk, a civil libertarian and folk humorist who fought a successful libel lawsuit that finally helped bring an end to blacklisting. In my recent memoir, written before Donald Trump had blessed us with his candidacy, I wrote of Faulk, “How do you not love a man who, in that East Texas drawl of his, says of some fatuous asshole in the news, ‘I’d like t’buy the somunabitch for what he’s worth and sell’m for what he thinks he’s worth!’”  That would translate to selling for a billion dollars today the Trump you payed a nickel for yesterday.

I have little to add to what has been said about Trump’s cruel treatment of immigrants and other political targets or his relentless demeaning of anyone who challenges him. As painful as it was to watch Trump’s attacks on the family of a soldier who sacrificed his life so that others might live, it was even more revolting to watch him suggest that maybe “the Second Amendment people” could do something about a President Clinton and her judicial nominees. Trump is making it clear to Americans who he is; we need to pay attention and avoid the horrific mistake of making him our leader. 

Trump is not the first demagogue we have faced; neither was McCarthy. One of the formative experiences of my youth was when, as a young child playing with my crystal radio set alone in my bedroom, I stumbled across Father Coughlin and learned that there were people in this country who hated Jews. But I also learned in civics classes that were held in grade school then (unfortunately not now) that people like Coughlin held ideas that were antithetical to those of our Founding Fathers and the Constitution they bequeathed us, ideas and ideals which we have strived to realize, and which have inspired so many generations of people from across the globe to make their way to our shores.

For all our continued flaws, we are a more decent nation than Donald Trump imagines. That’s why Joseph Welch’s words packed such a punch. And it is why Americans deserve more courage from their political leaders. As for Reince Priebus, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and others who have climbed on board the Trump train even though I have to believe their hearts knows better, it’s time they looked at themselves in the mirror and asked, “Have you left no sense of decency, Sirs, at long last?”

Michael Savage: 'Demonic' Obama Turning America 'Into A Muslim Nation'

Yesterday, conservative talk show host Michael Savage railed against nonprofit groups involved in resettling refugees, claiming that they are only interested in “raking in the money that’s being thrown at them by the federal government under that demon in the White House, Barack Obama, who wants the country fundamentally transformed into a Muslim nation, he wants it looking like Indonesia rather than like America.”

“The man is demonic in his desire to alter the landscape of this country in a way that no one will ever believe happened,” he said, adding that African Americans “are going to be the biggest losers of Obama’s policies.”

Savage said that “the progressive haters of America have sold us the false notion that multiculturalism is a good thing” and “we are being overrun by invaders, not immigrants; they refuse to learn the language, they hate the culture, they spit on the American flag, they don’t know what the Bill of Rights means and they can care less.”

He regretted that immigrants today aren’t like the Sicilian immigrants of prior decades, despite the fact that Sicilian immigrants were once maligned in the same manner that Savage attacks other immigrants and refugees.

Bryan Fischer: 'I Don't Believe That Women Should Be Entrusted With High Political Office'

On his radio program today, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer reiterated his position that women should not be entrusted with positions of political authority.

Responding to a caller, Fischer stated that "you could make a pretty good biblical case ... that only men are supposed to hold political office."

"That's always the pattern in the word of God," he said. "The kings were all males, when you had a departure from that with Jezebel and Athaliah, it was not a good thing, it did not work out well. Leadership in the church is reserved for men, leadership in the home is reserved for men. In other words, in God's economy, he has designed leadership and authority in society and in the church and in the home to be exercised by men."

"I think you could make a good case that leadership in culture, society, politically as well as in the home, that that is something in God's economy that's reserved for men," Fischer stated. "What if somebody had the courage to go on national TV, somebody of some kind of prominence or visibility, and said, 'Look, I'm going to vote for Trump because he's a man. I don't believe that women should be entrusted with high political office' ... That's the position I happen to take."

Larry Klayman: America Is Headed Towards An All-Out Revolution, Race War And Gender War

On Wednesday, Larry Klayman appeared on Newsmax to discuss his lawsuit against Hillary Clinton over the 2012 Benghazi attack, alleging that even congressional Republicans are part of a “giant cover-up” of what happened in Benghazi.

Klayman, who has repeatedly called for the overthrow of the Obama administration through a mass uprising or a military coup, even staging a failed “Second American Revolution” in front of the White House, claimed that America is headed towards another revolution against the government.

Later, when asked about former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland’s recent comment about Justice Scalia’s death, Klayman said that “the left in this country is evil.”

“The political leftist elite wants to turn this country into a highly socialist state,” he said. “They are disrespectful towards the police, they have incited violence to kill the police and frankly they are destroying this country. It’s a war. It’s a war between left and right. They’ve created a race war, regrettably, between black and white. Hillary Clinton is about ready to do it between men and women.”

He went on to accuse George Soros and Media Matters of trying to throw America into disarray, lamenting that “we are really sinking fast.”

Pat Buchanan: If Trump Loses, There Could Be A Revolution

In a column yesterday, Pat Buchanan warned that if Donald Trump loses the election in November, America could experience a revolution.

Buchanan, citing Trump’s recent suggestion that the election could be “rigged,” said that if Hillary Clinton defeats Trump, “would that not suggest there is something fraudulent about American democracy, something rotten in the state?”

“[T]he Republican electorate should tell its discredited and rejected ruling class: If we cannot get rid of you at the ballot box, then tell us how, peacefully and democratically, we can be rid of you?” he continued. “You want Trump out? How do we get you out? The Czechs had their Prague Spring. The Tunisians and Egyptians their Arab Spring. When do we have our American Spring?”

Buchanan then quoted John F. Kennedy’s remarks on U.S.-Latin American relations: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” Donald Trump told voters in Ohio and Sean Hannity on Fox News. And that hit a nerve.

“Dangerous,” “toxic,” came the recoil from the media.

Trump is threatening to “delegitimize” the election results of 2016.

Well, if that is what Trump is trying to do, he has no small point. For consider what 2016 promised and what it appears about to deliver.

This longest of election cycles has rightly been called the Year of the Outsider. It was a year that saw a mighty surge of economic populism and patriotism, a year when a 74-year-old socialist senator set primaries ablaze with mammoth crowds that dwarfed those of Hillary Clinton.

It was the year that a non-politician, Donald Trump, swept Republican primaries in an historic turnout, with his nearest rival an ostracized maverick in his own Republican caucus, Sen. Ted Cruz.

More than a dozen Republican rivals, described as the strongest GOP field since 1980, were sent packing. This was the year Americans rose up to pull down the establishment in a peaceful storming of the American Bastille.

But if it ends with a Clintonite restoration and a ratification of the same old Beltway policies, would that not suggest there is something fraudulent about American democracy, something rotten in the state?



Specifically, the Republican electorate should tell its discredited and rejected ruling class: If we cannot get rid of you at the ballot box, then tell us how, peacefully and democratically, we can be rid of you?

You want Trump out? How do we get you out?

The Czechs had their Prague Spring. The Tunisians and Egyptians their Arab Spring. When do we have our American Spring?



And if, as the polls show we might, we get Clinton – and TPP, and amnesty, and endless migrations of Third World peoples who consume more tax dollars than they generate, and who will soon swamp the Republicans’ coalition – what was 2016 all about?

Would this really be what a majority of Americans voted for in this most exciting of presidential races?

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable,” said John F. Kennedy.

Happy Birthday Social Security—Let's Remember That Mike Pence Was A Cheerleader For The Program's Destruction

On August 14, 1935, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. Eighty-one years later it still represents one of the most successful social programs in our country’s history.

Nearly two out of every three seniors rely on the Social Security for the majority of their income. If it did not exist, 44 percent of the elderly would live in poverty. Currently only 9 percent do.

As a member of Congress, Donald Trump’s vice presidential nominee Mike Pence was one of the biggest cheerleaders for George W. Bush’s privatization plans and other reforms that would have harmed the program.

As early as 2002, Pence spoke in the House of Representatives in favor of privatization. In 2005, after President Bush proposed reforms, he delivered speech after speech in favor of the proposal. He claimed at the time, “Social Security reform means keeping its promise in tact for seniors and all who choose to remain in the system. But Social Security reform also means offering a better deal to younger Americans in the form of voluntary personal accounts.”

A consistent theme of Pence’s was that privatization and other reforms would save the program from insolvency and protect seniors from future cuts. This was not true.

According to an analysis at the time from the Center for American Progress, such reforms would actually “worsen Social Security’s financial outlook. In addition:

  • Bush Would Address Solvency Solely by Cutting Benefits.
  • Benefit Cuts Would Come Through a Change in the Benefit Formula.
  • Bush’s Benefit Cuts Would Affect 70 Percent of All Taxpayers.
  • More Benefit Cuts Down the Road under Bush’s Plan.

Furthermore, Bush’s privatization plan would have added “trillions of dollars” to the deficit, while only providing “limited” investment choices for seniors. Yet Pence enthusiastically supported this policy.

Paul Krugman wrote of Bush’s Social Security proposal, “Privatizing Social Security—replacing the current system, in whole or in part, with personal investment accountswon't do anything to strengthen the system's finances. If anything, it will make things worse. Nonetheless, the politics of privatization depend crucially on convincing the public that the system is in imminent danger of collapse, that we must destroy Social Security in order to save it.”

On Social Security’s birthday, let’s remember that Mike Pence was one of those cheering for the program’s destruction.

Glenn Beck Mocks Donald Trump For Being Reduced To Renting Beck's Email List

Glenn Beck spent a segment of his radio broadcast today discussing the fact that he has rented his email list to Donald Trump, who has frequently attacked and taunted Beck, even though Beck has said that Trump, if elected, would be like Mussolini and throw Beck in jail:

 

 

Beck openly mocked Trump for being reduced to paying Beck to gain access to his audience now after repeatedly refusing Beck's offers to appear on his radio or television program, saying that this is a sign that Trump realizes that he is getting his "ass kicked" in the presidential campaign.

"This guy has not reached out to our audience, ever," Beck said. "Ever! He doesn't think you matter ... But this is a recognition that he needs this audience. This is a recognition of, 'I'm getting my ass kicked and I have to go to Glenn frickin' Beck and his audience because I need those ten million people to consider me.'"

"I think Donald Trump is dangerous," Beck continued. "I think he is scary as hell ... He's not man enough or have the balls enough to come on [my show,] but I'll take his money."

"I'm sure Donald Trump didn't expect this conversation to be happening," he said. "I don't think he was involved in this; his campaign did all of this. This should be recognized as Donald Trump is in so much trouble, he is now paying me to run ads in my email newsletters to reach out to an audience that he said he didn't need, nor does he even want. That's how much trouble they're in! To me, that speaks volumes. Volumes."

To listen to Beck's entire discussion of this topic, skip to the 1:20 mark of today's radio broadcast:

Trump Adviser Michael Flynn: Islam Is A 'Cancer' And 'A Political Ideology' That 'Hides Behind Being A Religion'

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.), a Donald Trump adviser who was floated as a potential running mate before the GOP nominee eventually picked Mike Pence, delivered a speech in Dallas on Wednesday at a gathering for the group ACT! for America.

Flynn, who serves as an adviser to the anti-Muslim group, told the audience that Islam is “a cancer” and “a political ideology” that “definitely hides behind being a religion,” while also pushing a bogus rumor about creeping Sharia in Texas.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

The contents of Flynn's book, How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, was a main topic of discussion. He took special interest in discussing what he called the dangers of Shariah law in Texas.

"Islam is a political ideology," Flynn said. "It definitely hides behind being a religion."

Flynn said that earlier in the day he met with Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne, who has been a polarizing figure in the public debate over Islam and the treatment of Muslims since rumors of an illegal Shariah court at the Irving Islamic Center began spreading in 2015.

"Beth is incredibly brave," Flynn said. "Vote for her for anything."

He likened Islam, a religion with 1.6 billion adherents worldwide, to "a cancer" and said that documents recovered from terrorist organizations instruct followers to "get into the bloodstream of the opposition," which Flynn said means to attack Western nations.

Flynn described himself as a scholar of American history and of religion. He said he had focused many years of study on the influence of religion on the Founding Fathers.

"This Islamic ideology was something they wanted nothing to do with," he said.

Flynn also told the crowd that Bernie Sanders is “an avowed communist” and sidestepped an audience question about how the U.S. can “deport Muslims.”

Such remarks aren’t very surprising, as Trump himself has said that “Islam hates us” and that Muslims should be banned from “entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”

Flynn recently came under media scrutiny for his ties to Vladimir Putin and his retweet of an anti-Semitic message, which he later apologized for.

CBN Asks Donald Trump: Do You Think God Raised You Up For The Presidency?

Yesterday, Donald Trump gave an interview to the Christian Broadcasting Network following his speech at the American Renewal Project’s gathering in Orlando, a speech that received a rave review from CBN founder and “700 Club” host Pat Robertson.

CBN reporter Jenna Browder asked Trump the question that has been on everybody’s mind: “You know, a lot of Christians believe that you have been chosen for such a time as this. Do you believe that’s true? Have you ever considered that maybe this is a divine calling?”

“Well you know, I’ve heard that from others,” Trump said. “I’ve heard it from pastors. I’ve heard it from others. I don’t really want to think about it because it’s too big of a burden but I can say this, that if I can do what I’m saying I can do, and I’m not only talking with the military and building up and safety and security, you know, our country’s in such bad shape in so many ways.”

When Browder asked Trump how he would “protect” the “Christian business leaders” who “are getting attacked because they don’t want to support gay couples or they don’t want to provide services,” Trump spoke vaguely about what he had said in his speech.

Robertson, meanwhile, hailed Trump’s “refreshing” remarks, while alleging that the IRS is persecuting “conservative Christians.”

Glenn Beck Can't Believe People Can't See That We're Living Under God's Judgment

Last night, Glenn Beck told his studio audience that he simply cannot believe that his fellow Americans cannot clearly see that this nation is under God's judgment. 

God wants us all to be happy and get along, Beck said, but He also gives us free will, which we are using to make terrible choices, leading us to suffer the consequences of violating God's laws.

"Because of our choices as a nation," Beck said, "He's really clear, I mean, He does this every time. My gosh, I can't believe that we are the people that you read in the scriptures where you're going, 'These people are are so stupid.' I mean, I can't believe it, every time you read it and I've never understood it. I think I remember asking when I was young, 'How come the people in the Bible are always so stupid? Didn't they see?' No. No, they didn't see, and it's amazing to be living in that time and seeing how many people are just blind to it."

"So what does He do? He wakes us all up," Beck continued. "At some point, dad walks in the room right before you're going to be late for school and he turns on the light and rips the sheets off of you and all of a sudden you're freezing when you were toasty warm and he's like, 'Get up, now!' That's what's coming, but He's only doing it because He loves us."

LGBT Rights Opponent Newt Gingrich To Address Log Cabin Republicans

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is scheduled to headline the Log Cabin Republicans’ Spirit of Lincoln event in September, despite a long history of opposition to LGBT rights.

While Gingrich, a confidant of Donald Trump and a favorite of Religious Right activists, may have softened his views on LGBT issues since his time in Congress and failed campaign for president, and has been open to at least supporting the legal recognition of same-sex relationships, his record speaks for itself. Gingrich has:

  • Warned about the threat of “a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, is prepared to use harassment.”

The thrice-married Gingrich, it seems, has not viewed his own marital history as a reason to rethink his opposition to marriage equality, blaming his extramarital affairs on his patriotism.

The Log Cabin Republicans are mulling an endorsement of Trump, although the GOP presidential nominee has yet to meet with the group. Trump, however, is scheduled to speak to the anti-LGBT activists at the Values Voter Summit in September.

Hillary Clinton Continues to Call for Democracy Reform on Campaign Trail

Big money in politics has been a banner issue this election, with both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders including a comprehensive set of solutions to this fundamental problem as a core focus of their campaigns from the very beginning. Now that the primaries are over and the election is less than three months away, Hillary Clinton continues to express her support for legislative changes necessary to level the political playing field and create a democracy that is of, by and for the people.

"We've got to get unaccountable money out of politics, overturn Citizens United, and expand voting rights" said Clinton yesterday at a campaign event in Michigan.

Clinton is supported by a vast majority of Americans who support taking action on this issue, as well as a broad coalition of organizational supporters working to pass solutions on the local, state and national level. Donald Trump, while occasionally suggesting that the system is ‘rigged’, has offered no concrete policy solutions to address this problem and his party’s platform calls for the further erosion of our nation’s campaign finance laws.

PFAW Members Catch Up to Kelly Ayotte in Manchester 5K to Ask if She Trusts Donald Trump to Fill Supreme Court Vacancy

Yesterday, at the Cigna/Elliot 5K Road race in downtown Manchester, Sen. Kelly Ayotte revealed a level of trust in Donald Trump’s ability to choose a qualified Supreme Court justice when questioned by a Manchester voter.

Watch her response:

Ayotte, who has repeatedly ignored the vast majority of Granite Staters who want her to do her constitutional duty and support moving forward with hearings and a vote for Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, seemed unconcerned with the particulars of Trump’s judgement regarding the next Supreme Court justice, but said she’d looked at the list and thinks it’s a “good start.”

Trump: Church Attendance Will Rise When I'm President

In his typically incoherent way, Donald Trump told a meeting of right-wing pastors today that church attendance has declined in America “and a lot of it has to do with the fact that you’ve been silenced.”

“You’ve been silenced like a child has been silenced,” he told the pastors at an Orlando event organized by the American Renewal Projectmaking the bogus claim that pastors are barred from addressing political issues. “Your power has been totally taken away.”

Trump said that “they took away your voice” but he can restore it by repealing the Johnson Amendment, which he claimed will in turn increase church attendance.

He then expressed dismay that people don’t even know about the existence of Sunday school: “I mean Christianity, when you think of what’s happening and you look at the numbers, I talk about Sunday school and people don’t even know what I’m talking about anymore, it’s true, they don’t even know what I’m talking about.”

“We’re gonna bring it back because it’s a good thing, it’s a good thing,” he said“They treat it like it’s a bad thing but it’s a great thing, not a good thing, it’s a great thing.”

Bryan Fischer's First Amendment Theory Is So Incoherent That Even He Doesn't Understand It

As we have noted several times before, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer regularly promotes an entirely incoherent theory about the First Amendment, insisting that its prohibition against an establishment of religion only applies to Congress while also insisting that its prohibition against infringing upon the free exercise of religion applies to just about any government entity.

Fischer made this nonsensical argument against on his radio program today when he praised Joe Kennedy, a former assistant high school football coach who is now suing his school district for firing him for refusing to stop praying with students after games. 

Despite the fact that, time and again, Fischer has insisted that the provisions of the First Amendment only apply to Congress and therefore cannot be violated by any other entity, Fischer bizarrely declared that the school district has violated Kennedy's First Amendment rights.

"Good for you, coach Joe Kennedy," Fischer declared. "He's taking the district to court for violating his First Amendment rights, which is exactly what they've done ... What does the First Amendment say? It says that Congress—and Bremerton [School District,] they interpret that to mean any governmental authority, that would include schools because they're government schools—is not allowed to prohibit the free exercise of religion. What did Bremerton School District do when they told Joe Kennedy, 'You can't pray at midfield after a game'? They prohibited his free exercise of religion! They told him, 'Your constitutional right—even though this is government property and the government is specifically prohibited from infringing on your free exercise rights—we are going to destroy the First Amendment here, doesn't apply in Bremerton, doesn't apply on a football field, you have lost that right. You have not only lost that right, you have lost your job.'"

Fischer's current assertion that Bremerton is violating Kennedy's First Amendment rights directly contradicts his longstanding assertion that only Congress can possibly violate the First Amendment. As he wrote just last year:

The truth is that it is constitutionally and historically impossible for a school to violate the First Amendment. Why? Easy. Because a school is not Congress.

As the very first word in the First Amendment makes clear, the First Amendment applies to Congress and Congress alone. “Congress shall make no law...” The only entity that is restrained by the Founders’ Constitution is Congress. Since Congress is the only entity restrained by the First Amendment, Congress is the only entity that can violate it. 

Donald Trump Once Again Pushes His Obama-ISIS Conspiracy Theory

In recent days, Donald Trump has taken to calling President Obama the “founder” of ISIS, repeating the line at campaign rallies and in interviews, including one with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt where he insisted that he wasn’t speaking figuratively. Trump has also claimed that ISIS terrorists “honor Obama.”

Of course, Trump ignores the fact that ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, is the successor to the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq, which was established before Obama’s presidency, and ISI itself was created out of al-Qaeda in Iraq. Al-Qaeda in Iraq was the successor to a different terrorist group formed in 1999.

The GOP presidential nominee has particularly attacked Obama for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq after a status of forces agreement between the two countries expired, even though Trump himself called for a withdrawal of U.S. troops years earlier.

Trump’s insinuation that Obama had a hand in creating ISIS isn’t anything new, as he said back in June that when it comes to the issue of terrorism, Obama “doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands.”

He also has deployed one of his favorite rhetorical tools—a lot of people say—to suggest that Obama is a terrorist sympathizer: “Well there are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn’t want to get it. A lot of people think maybe he doesn’t want to know about it.”

Last year, Trump similarly stated that “a lot of people think” Obama has “evil intentions” when it comes to his plan to resettle Syrian refugees, who Trump says are “probably” members of ISIS.

“We can’t close our eyes,” he said while addressing terrorism at one campaign rally. “I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”

Back in February, Trump said that “maybe [Obama] doesn’t want to get rid of the problem” of terrorism. “I don’t know exactly what’s going on.”

In 2014, Trump falsely claimed on Twitter that Obama was actively arming ISIS.

When Trump describes Obama as an ISIS sympathizer or its “founder,” it’s no gaffe—it’s what he has been saying throughout his campaign.

Michele Bachmann: Democrats Aid 'Civilization Jihad'

Responding to the news that a Muslim-American woman won a Democratic primary for a seat in the Minnesota state legislature, former Rep. Michele Bachmann accused Democrats of aiding “civilization jihad” and promoting Sharia law.

Bachmann, of course, never went into detail about why she thinks that Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American political organizer who won her primary race on Tuesday, believes in “civilization jihad” and the imposition of Sharia law, but that didn’t stop her from making the accusation against Omar in a WorldNetDaily interview yesterday. (WND points out that Omar’s Republican opponent in the race is also a Somali-American).

End Times radio host Jan Markell, conservative activist Philip Haney and ACT! for America coordinator Debra Anderson joined Bachmann in implicating Omar in a plot to establish Sharia law in the U.S., alleging that Muslim-Americans only act patriotic to further an ulterior agenda.

“The Democratic Party rejects the idea of civilization jihad as advanced by the Muslim Brotherhood,” said former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. “Who’s laughing now?”

Omar won her victory over two other candidates in a three-way race. Besides incumbent Kahn, another Somali, Mohamud Noor, also ran for the seat. Like Omar, Noor is also Somali-American and an activist in Democratic politics.

In November, Omar will face Republican Abdimalik Askar, a school teacher who political observers in Minnesota say has no chance of winning.

Jan Markell, founder of Olive Tree Ministries, a Christian radio broadcaster in Minnesota and co-author of “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell” with Holocaust survivor Anita Dittman, said she will be watching the political career of Omar closely but she doesn’t have high hopes based on the performance of Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress who is also from Minnesota.

She said many Minnesota Christians will be praying that Omar is “a productive part of our political process and not an advocate of Shariah law.”



Debra Anderson, the Minnesota chapter coordinator for ACT For America, a watchdog group that opposes Shariah law, said Omar’s election is just the first shoe to fall in what will inevitably be many conquests of Islam in her state as a result of the growing Somali enclaves not only in Minneapolis but in St. Cloud, Willmar, Austin, Owatonna and other cities.

“She believes America is oppressive, classic Islamic worldview,” Anderson said of Omar’s platform as laid out on her website. “Throughout, she uses progressive speak, policies that, if enacted, will ultimately promote the incremental accommodation to Islam.

“She is following the example of Mohammad: Settle. Seek power through politics. Once power is achieved, impose Islamic law.”

“Their extensive co-opting of American ideas and words overwhelm me. I don’t know where to even begin to counter their lies.”



“If the predominant political climate of America was conservative, they would support every conservative cause with just as much fervor as they are now supporting liberal causes,” Haney said of politically active Muslims. “These guys are master chameleons, and even though their colors are red, white and blue, they’re still chameleons.”



Traditional non-Islamic Minnesota Democrats don’t realize their days are numbered, Bachmann said.

“Democrats don’t realize that Shariah-sympathetic politicians see the supplanting of the U.S. Constitution by Shariah, in addition to other U.S. laws, as their ultimate goal,” Bachmann said. “This isn’t far-fetched.”



All of this means Minnesota is “far down the road of civilization jihad,” Bachmann said.

Another long-term Democrat politician was defeated Tuesday in Minneapolis by another refugee, Fue Lee of Thailand, though Lee is not Muslim.

“The Democratic Party may think they are brilliantly adding coalitions under their inclusive umbrella,” Bachmann said. “But they fail to realize their power will be quashed sooner than they can say ‘Shariah.'”

Anti-LGBT Russian Documentary Featuring Scott Lively Is Now Available In English

Back in 2014, extremist anti-gay activist Scott Lively appeared in a virulently anti-gay documentary that aired on Russian television:

While Lively's views can't find much domestic audience, they play well in Vladimir Putin's Russia. Lively's anti-gay zeal is on display in Sodom, a new documentary that aired on Russian television last month, to much acclaim. The film was produced by famously anti-gay TV host Arkady Mamontov, who once implied that the Chelyabinsk meteorite explosion was caused by the gay rights movement. The film aired on Rossiya-1, Russia's main government-funded TV channel.

"For American homosexuals, this man, Scott Lively, is public enemy number one," intones the film's narrator. On camera, Lively speaks about the gay "agenda," which seeks "anti-discrimination policy" in the name of ultimate "societal conquest." Lively insists that "The average American is not in favor of homosexuality. But they are afraid to speak publicly about it, because the gays have so much power and they can do harm to those people."

Lively brings the film's producers to the headquarters of the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, DC. Set against a dramatic soundtrack, Lively paces outside. "This organization, instead of focusing on the true needs of people around the world, they are trying to declare that homosexuality is a human right," Lively says. "They spend vast amounts of money to promote this agenda around the world instead of defending genuine human rights."

Now, for the first time, that documentary has been made available in English.

It begins by recounting the story of Sodom and Gomorrah before declaring that the "Phoenician demon" that was at work there is still "satiating his belly with human sacrifices [and] devouring youth and children today" through gay rights activism.

"Evil is now called virtue and darkness light," the narrator intones. "Sin and debauchery are becoming a cult."

Lively eventually appears on camera to rail against the LGBT-friendly "Queen James Bible," which he calls "an abomination before God."

"There is no sacred ground for the homosexuals," Lively says. "There is nothing that they will not do to promote their agenda. There is no opposition that they will accept at any level. They must conquer every opponent and the spirit that has produced this book, this false Bible, this gay theology is the heresy of the modern world."
