Sen. Elizabeth Warren Talks With PFAW Members About Judicial Nominations

Yesterday, Massachusetts senator and progressive hero Elizabeth Warren joined PFAW’s Michael Keegan and Marge Baker on a member telebriefing to discuss GOP senators’ unprecedented obstruction of judicial nominations at all levels, including their refusal to give fair consideration to President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.

Sen. Warren noted on the call that Senate Republicans are now “setting new records for obstruction.” She suggested that they “might want to pull a copy of the Constitution out and take a look,” since the document is “crystal clear” about the Senate’s responsibility to confirm or reject the judges the president nominates. Instead, Warren said, GOP senators are trying to hold the Supreme Court seat open for a President Trump so that he can nominate judges who will bend the laws to suit their interests and the interests of their powerful friends.

Sen. Warren encouraged PFAW members and supporters to ask their senators why they won’t do their jobs and to keep up the pressure. “People For the American Way has done a fantastic job of putting pressure on Senate Republicans to give these judges timely consideration and an up-or-down vote,” she said. “This is a tough fight, but you don't get what you don't fight for.”

Marge Baker reviewed the work that PFAW is doing to make sure Republicans are held accountable at the ballot box on Election Day, including on-the-ground organizing targeting senators who have refused to do their jobs and PFAW’s massive Latinos Vote! campaign, designed to make sure Latino voters are ready to help deliver a progressive victory in November.

Bryan Fischer Says 'There's No Question' That Hillary Clinton 'Has Opened Her Life Up To Demonic Influence'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who floated the theory that Hillary Clinton's recent bout of pneumonia was really a sign that a demon "has latched on to her." While Fischer was not able to diagnose whether Clinton's illness was demonic in nature, he did say that "it's certainly possible that there is some kind of demonic influence in her life."

"I think it's almost inevitable," Fischer said, "given what she's done with her life and the things that she's done. You can open the doorway of your life to demonic presences in a lot of different ways and a lot of them are things that Hillary Clinton has done. So there's no question, from a biblical standpoint, that she herself has opened her life up to demonic influence."

Anti-Immigrant Hate Group Leader: 'Donald Trump Has The Best . . .Group Of People Advising Him On Immigration Policy'

Dan Stein, executive director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), said in radio interview Wednesday morning, “I tell you this in all sincerity: Donald Trump has the best, most seasoned, and knowledgeable group of people advising him on immigration policy issues of any Republican candidate to run for president, probably in American history.”

“He’s got people who really grasp what Obama has done, how to turn it around, how to fix it, working with point people in Congress like Jeff Sessions,” Stein continued.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has considered FAIR a hate group since 2008 “because of its virulent and false attacks on non-white immigrants.”  Additionally, FAIR leaders have “ties to white supremacist groups and eugenicists and have made many racist statements.”

Trump launched his campaign by announcing, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

This parroted statements made by Stein nearly 20 years ago. "Immigrants don't come all church-loving, freedom-loving, God-fearing. … Many of them hate America; hate everything that the United States stands for. Talk to some of these Central Americans,” he told Tucker Carlson in 1997.

 

White Nationalist Wonders If Trump Will Drive Jews Out Of Power

Matt Parrott, a “founding member” and the chief information officer of the white nationalist Traditionalist Youth Network, was not fond of a cheeky Washington Post column by Shalom Auslander that said people should stop comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler because Hitler was a megalomaniacal psychopath while Trump is just “a two-bit con man.” Auslander wrote:

The comparison that matters is not, “Is Donald Trump like Hitler?” but, “Are we like Hitler’s willing executioners?”

Will we look the other way, say we didn’t know, stand silently by while millions of our neighbors are rounded up, while women who get abortions are “punished,” while immigrants are given “ideology tests” and our leader heaps praise on oppressive tyrants?

Well? Will we?

Are we that terrified? Are we that hateful? Are we that frightened, that cowardly, that selfish, that helpless, that cold-hearted, that dumb, that easily manipulated, that easily provoked? Are we so bereft of answers, so pathetically hopeless, that all we can come up with is easy scapegoating and blind fealty to Our Great Leader? Are We The People really going to fall for the dumbest, oldest, easiest trick in the book?

Because if we are, then we won’t need an Adolf Hitler to embrace that darkness. Even a two-bit con man like Donald Trump will be enough.

In a post on the Trad Youth website, Parrott writes, “Auslander isn’t angry that Trump’s a con artist, he’s angry about the fact that an implicitly anti-semitic platform is electrifying the nation.” Parrott says Auslander’s comments about “Hitler’s willing executioners” mean that he is “accusing America’s goyim of being a bunch of Nazis.” Writes Parrott:

Even if you don’t name the Jews, if you’re putting America First, the Jews will name you. And if you’re not a brilliant and well-connected billionaire with balls of imported Swedish green marble, they will break you. The Jews aren’t so much angry at Trump as they’re angry at the deplorable goyim propelling him to victory.

Parrott concludes:

Maybe it’s not the End of History after all, Shalom. And maybe America will follow the leader of every other European nation in history in eventually awakening from the Jewish spell and driving y’all out. Whether Trump turns out to be the man who rises up from among the people to drive you out of power, what’s been demonstrated is that our human nature hasn’t been fundamentally transformed. White Americans are actually reviving their spirit of racial pride, bucking the Jewish plan for them, and growing immune to the usual enticements and enforcements.

The Traditionalist Youth Network is led by Matthew Heimbach, who believes the United States should be divided into ethnically homogenous regions. Heimbach has praised Donald Trump for “speaking to white interests” and celebrated the way Trump’s campaign has provided fertile ground for his group’s recruiting. Trump, says Heimbach, “has opened this floodgate that I don’t think can be restrained regardless of what happens in the 2016 elections.”

Jim Bakker: Hillary Clinton's Election Would Be God's Judgment On America

Televangelist Jim Bakker said today that God could deliver the presidency to Hillary Clinton as a sign that he is judging America with “immature leadership.”

“God says, ‘I’m God and if I choose Trump he’ll be elected and if I choose Hillary—’ and I’ll tell you what, God could allow Hillary to be elected because God sends judgment to a nation by giving them what the Bible says is immature leadership,” Bakker said.

Bakker added that “without a miracle in America,” Donald Trump is “going to be the closest thing probably to a Christian that America would ever elect. It’s over, people.”

John Guandolo: CNN Journalists Are 'Enemies Of The State' And 'Shills For The Enemy'

John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent turned anti-Muslim speaker, was not happy with CNN’s coverage of the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, telling Virginia talk radio host Rob Schilling on Monday that the network’s coverage was dominated by “enemies of the state” and “shills for the enemy like Fareed Zakaria and others.”

“I noticed when I was kind of scanning through the channels,” he said, “I landed on CNN and listened and there they were talking about how anti-Muslim activity is up in America and Americans don’t understand Islam and we’re awesome and it’s our fault, you know, our handling of Iraq and Afghanistan has created ISIS and it was just, it was an absolute assault on the United States, quite frankly, by shills for the enemy like Fareed Zakaria and others on CNN. And these people are enemies of the state and it’s a propaganda war that we’re in.

“And it was disgusting to watch just speaker after speaker, and it was as if it was a chance for us to talk about how we need to be nicer to Islam and the Muslim community and not differentiating between the people in some cases and the fact that Islam is a totalitarian ideology.”

Guandolo also called on Americans to gain the “courage” to start “speaking the truth” about Islam, including confronting any pastor who teaches tolerance by kicking “his ass right out of church.”

“If 10 million Americans just started speaking the truth in their workplace, in their churches, when their pastors say things like, you know, ‘Everything’s okay, all behavior’s okay, Jesus said love each other and that means you tolerate all behavior,’ somebody ought to step up out of the pew, grab that guy by the ear and kick his ass right out of the church,” he said.

“Until we decide that we’re going to stand on principle and stand on truth, we’re going to continue to watch these things and this nation go down the tubes,” he added.

Michael Savage: Obama Is 'The New Leader Of The Caliphate'

Yesterday, far-right radio host Michael Savage repeated his claim that President Obama is seeking to turn the U.S. into a Muslim nation, saying that the “monster in the White House” is bringing Muslim Syrian refugees into the U.S. “because he is transforming America into part of the caliphate.”

“He is the new leader of the caliphate,” Savage said. “He is the most deceitful new leader of a caliphate imaginable and he’s got unlimited funding and control of the funding. So, no, he didn’t do a good job. He did a very good job for empowering and enabling ISIS.”

Glenn Beck: Obama Hates America Because He Grew Up Overseas 'With A Monkey And A Parrot'

Last night, Glenn Beck unveiled one of the new formats that he'll be using for his nightly television program, which has now changed its name from "The Glenn Beck Program" to simply "Glenn." Beck intends to have different formats for every night of the week and last night's program was the first of his "Think Tank" episodes in which he and several staff members sit around and discuss the news of the day.

They kicked things off by attacking President Obama for supposedly trashing America when he was on his recent trip to Laos, playing a clip of him saying that "America is not perfect. Look, it still has racial discrimination and it still has its own problems; it should worry about its own problems. And I agree with that."

"I can't take it," Beck said, as one of his staff members wondered what happened to Obama to make him hate America so much.

"He grew up, a lot of time, over there with a monkey and a parrot," Beck responded, "and then he moved over with his communist grandparents and the communist Frank Marshall Davis."

Beck's crew, of course, took Obama's comments wildly out of context.

If you bother to listen to what Obama actually said, he was saying that sometimes other people say America has no right to criticize the civil rights records of other nations because  America still struggles with discrimination and its own problems. Obama agreed that we "still have problems we have to work on" but argued that "we have learned from our experience" and are seeking to overcome those issues:

And I'll be honest, everywhere we go, including here at ASEAN, sometimes people say, "Ah, why are the Americans talking about these issues?  This is none of their business; they shouldn’t be meddling in other people's business.  And also, America is not perfect.  Look, it still has racial discrimination.  It still has its own problems.  It should worry about its own problems."

And I agree with that in the sense that we definitely do still have problems we have to work on.  We still have discrimination, we still have situations where women are not treated equally.  But I think that, over the long term, the only way that humans are going to be able to work together and interact and prosper and deal with big problems is if we are able to see what we have in common with each other, and treat everybody with dignity and respect.  And that means that we have to have some principles that are not just based on our nationality, they're not just based on our tribe or our religion or our ethnicity.  Otherwise, at some point we're not going to be able to get along, and we'll have more war and we'll have more conflict -- because that's been human history.

And this is why we talk about these issues when we travel to other countries, as well.  It's not because we think we're better than other people, it's because we have learned from our own experience that if you don't respect all people, or you don’t respect all religions but also make sure that no matter how religious you are, you respect other people to have a different idea -- we've learned that if that doesn’t happen, then we have conflict.

And if you look at what's happening now in the Middle East, for example, that's not a -- the problem in the Middle East is not primarily a problem of the West versus Islam; the problem increasingly is, Shia thinking that Sunnis are following the wrong path, and vice versa.  And in Syria, if you're an Alawite or you're a Christian, then you're worried about what the Sunni Muslims are going to do.  And that -- the same in Africa, where-- a place like Rwanda, where in a matter of just a few months you saw a country kill hundreds of thousands of people just because of those differences.  And that's been true in all parts of the world.  So we have to fight against that.  And that means that we have to be able to promote principles that rise above any individual religion, nationality, race.  And that's what we've been trying to promote -- not always successfully.  Not everybody in America agrees with me on this, by the way.  I'll leave it at that.

ACT For America Speaker Blasts 'Un-Jews' Who Disagree On Israel Policy

At a conference last week hosted by ACT for America, a conservative rabbi addressing the summit blasted what he called “un-Jews” who disagree with conservatives on U.S. policy in Israel.

After Rabbi Jon Hausman and evangelical pastor Jack Hibbs delivered presentations to the conference, an audience member asked Hausman: “Why does there seem to be so many so-called ‘self-hating Jews’ and why don’t they vote in Israel’s interests?”

“It’s an interesting phenomenon,” Hausman said, “one that my brother and I, we like to call them the ‘un-Jews.’ And I think it really stems from a lack of facility with traditional Jewish texts and traditional Jewish values, so they’ve replaced those values with the op-ed page of the New York Times.”

Steve Quayle: 'The Destruction Of 90 Percent Of Humanity' Imminent

Last week, radio host Steve Quayle revealed to televangelist Jim Bakker the nefarious scheme by “the globalist elite” to exterminate “90 percent” of humanity through birth control, Ebola and the Zika virus.

Birth control, according to Quayle, is part of an attempt to emasculate men through the water supply, while Ebola and Zika are actually biological weapons that were unleashed in order to compel people to get vaccines that will further “the destruction of 90 percent of humanity”:

Glenn Beck Agrees To Settle Boston Marathon Bombing Defamation Lawsuit Against Him

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, Glenn Beck launched a crusade to prove that the United States government was covering up what "really" happened during the terrorist attack. 

According to Beck, Abdulrahman Alharbi, a Saudi Arabian student who was injured in the bombing, was not simply a victim but was really an al Qaeda "control agent" who had recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the attack. Though Alharbi had briefly been considered a person of interest in the early part of the investigation, he was quickly cleared by investigators. But Beck nevertheless spent days accusing Alharbi of having played a direct role in organizing the bombing and accusing anyone who didn't believe him of having been duped by a government conspiracy to cover up Alharbi's involvement.

Eventually, Beck's entire conspiracy theory collapsed when one of his own experts told him that his theory "doesn't make sense," but that didn't stop Beck from continuing to assert that Alharbi was the "money man" behind the bombing.

In 2014, Alharbi sued Beck for slander and defamation and Beck has been fighting the lawsuit tooth and nail. When the federal judge overseeing the case ruled last month that Beck and his company must reveal the names of the confidential sources upon whom they relied in leveling the unfounded accusations against Alharbi, Beck vowed to go to jail rather than do so.

But it seems that Beck's grandstanding was all for show, as yesterday, he agreed to settle the lawsuit with Alharbi for an undisclosed amount:

Conservative media personality Glenn Beck and several related companies have reached an out-of-court settlement with a Saudi Arabian student Beck accused of involvement in financing the deadly 2013 bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

...

The settlement was disclosed Tuesday in a brief order from U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris dismissing the case. No dollar amount was revealed.

"The parties in this matter have reached a settlement of the pending action. The terms of the settlement are confidential," both sides in the suit said in a joint statement.

"No party has admitted any fault, wrongdoing, or responsibility as part of the settlement. Defendants have agreed to settlement of the pending action in furtherance of fundamental principles of journalistic integrity by preserving the confidentiality of their sources consistent with their rights and privileges under the First Amendment. The Plaintiff has pursued this action for the reasons set forth in his Complaint and believes those interests have been served by this resolution," the statement said.

Pro-Trump Super PAC Teams Up With Birther For 'Super Trump' Time Square Billboard

A super PAC supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy, headed up by his longtime friend Roger Stone, is teaming up with a notorious anti-Obama conspiracy theorist to erect a digital billboard in Times Square showing the GOP presidential nominee as the superhero “Super Trump.”

WorldNetDaily’s chief birther correspondent, Jerome Corsi, reported over the weekend that Stone’s Committee to Restore America’s Greatness is bankrolling a Times Square run for a billboard designed by Joel Gilbert. Gilbert provides a preview on his YouTube channel:

Gilbert became a celebrity in the far right in 2012, when he released a film positing the alternative birther theory that President Obama was actually born in the United States but that his “real father” was labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, who raised him from birth to lead a communist takeover of America. Gilbert mailed his movie, “Dreams From My Real Father,” to voters in swing states but anecdotal evidence suggested that its lurid depictions of a woman who Gilbert falsely claimed was Obama’s mother turned off more voters than it won over.

Gilbert’s inability to swing the 2012 election with his groundbreaking journalism, however, did not stop him from continuing to build on the story by exposing the president’s nose job and his secret Muslim wedding ring.

Gilbert told Corsi that he was inspired to make his “Super Trump” design after watching Trump “jet around the country in his airplane” and that he thought the design would appeal to both millennials and older generations:

Gilbert explained he designed his image of the superhero because he could envision a large number of Millennials voting for Trump, and he wanted to appeal to a younger audience. But he also felt older Americans would appreciate the Superman takeoff because many who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s watched the television show in which Superman, played by actor George Reeves, fought for “Truth, justice, and the American way.”

The filmmaker created an accompanying poster, which Corsi reports “he expects could go viral on the Internet.”

According to Corsi, the billboard project is being funded by a donation from Bob Shillman of California, a board member of the David Horowitz Freedom Center:

“When I was a kid, Superman was my idol,” Shillman explained to WND. “The digital billboard concept was appropriate for Trump because Trump is bringing change to presidential politics, just like the digital billboard concept is innovative, bringing presidential politics into pop culture.”

Shillman also mentioned he liked debuting the “Super Trump” billboard in Times Square because New York City is Trump’s home base of operations.

“The billboard animation was designed to appeal to everyone who loves America and wants to see this country restored to its former greatness,” Shillman said. “I’m proud to have the opportunity to sponsor it.”

In a statement on the super PAC’s website, Stone explains: “Donald Trump will fight tirelessly for millions of people who are fed up with the weak, incompetent, and poor leadership from career politicians in both parties. Failed policies of both Bill and Hillary Clinton have brought America to the brink, it’s no surprise that a Herculean effort is needed to make America great again. Donald Trump is heroic enough for that task.”

According to the committee, the billboard will run from today through Friday in Times Square and along a highway in Florida.

Michele Bachmann: Vote Trump Or Lose America To Totalitarianism And Socialist Immigrants

In a Friday interview with Virginia-based radio host Rob Schilling, former Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann expanded on her recent comments that if Donald Trump loses in November, it will be the “last election” in America because Hillary Clinton will “change the demographics of the United States so that no Republican will ever win again.”

Bachmann told Schilling in an interview at the Washington, D.C., Values Voter Summit that while Republicans are focusing on “the fine points of somebody’s tax plan,” Democrats are simply trying to get enough votes to win the election “because they’re about power and they’re about money.”

What Republicans have to realize, she said, is that “the Democrats had a plan since 1965 to change the demographics of this country. They wanted to bring people into this country from socialist countries who agree with socialism. They didn’t want to have constitutional Republicans in this country. And so they decided to change the demographics.”

Bachmann said she agreed with Ann Coulter’s analysis that this is a demographic “tipping point” for the country, saying that “this is our last chance for Republicans to field a candidate that can win.”

President Obama, she said, “has an open border right now” in what amounts to “a taxpayer subsidized Democrat voter registration drive.” If Clinton becomes president, she added, she will grant “amnesty to all these people here illegally in the United States” who will then “receive substantial government supports in the form of food stamps and housing and free health care and free education and police and fire and all the other amenities that we provide in this country.”

“They aren’t paying their own way,” she said. “So it is a situation where this is the last election where a Republican with constitutional values will be competitive. Four years from now, we might field a Republican but they won’t be competitive because the math, it’s a math problem, the numbers will be so overwhelming for people who demand socialism because people vote their paycheck. If their paycheck is coming from the federal government or their food stamps or their health insurance, that’s what they’re going to vote for.”

When Schilling lamented that Americans are no longer “too proud to accept charity,” Bachmann agreed. “Now it’s demanding,” she said. “Now it’s demanding, ‘It’s my right. It’s my right to have health care, it’s my right to have housing, it’s my right to make you pay for my college.’ Next thing we’ll hear is, ‘You’ve got to buy me a house, not just Section 8, you’ve got to buy me a house, you’ve got to pay for my retirement.’ It’s like ridiculous.”

Bernie Sanders was so successful in the Democratic presidential primary, she said, because public schools have moved to a “full-throated embrace of socialism.” Only Trump, she said, has promised to abolish the Common Core curriculum standards and thereby “get rid of the left’s stranglehold on this country” through the schools.

Bachmann went on to warn evangelical voters that if they choose to sit out the election, they will be turning the nation over to totalitarianism forever.

“So if we get a number of believers who think it’s the morally correct thing not to choose either Hillary or Donald Trump, then we lose and you have got for the rest of time a totalitarian nation where we’ve got economic Marxism,” she declared.

Steve King: Colin Kaepernick Is Helping ISIS

In an interview today on Newsmax, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, denied that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has a constitutional right to refuse to stand for the National Anthem, even going so far as to accuse him of sympathizing with the terrorist group ISIS.

“I understand that he has an Islamic girlfriend that is his fiancée and that this has changed him, has taken on some different political views along the way, this is activism that is sympathetic to ISIS,” he told host Steve Malzberg. “For me, if I’m the coach, I would say, ‘You’re done. Until you take a knee and beg forgiveness from the American people, you’re not going to set foot out on this field again.’”

Rep. Ted Yoho Boasts Of Personally Stopping A Boat Of Cuban Refugees From Reaching America

In an August 25 town hall meeting in Melrose, Florida, Rep. Ted Yoho boasted that he had recently personally prevented a boat of Cuban refugees from reaching land in the U.S. The Florida Republican said that he had been fishing with his son off the Florida Keys the previous weekend when his son spotted a boat with about “20 migrants” who “wanted liberty and freedom.”

Yoho said he notified the Coast Guard but not before taking matters into his own hands: He told his son to “throw a rope in there and follow their route and he did it, the Coast Guard showed up, and they deported those people back to Cuba.”

“I have a friend I know that’s in the Coast Guard that picked them up and they said that was the was the maddest group of immigrants they’ve ever picked up,” he said. “And I can imagine, you're a mile and a half from land and I snatched it away from them, I’m sure that’s what they think.”  He then boasted that he had saved taxpayer money that would’ve been spent on the refugees. 

An attendee broadcasted the meeting on Periscope.

Los Tigres del Norte Joins People For the American Way to Urge Virginia Latinos to Vote Against Trump

During a concert in Manassas, Virginia this past weekend, multiple Grammy winners Los Tigres del Norte delivered a powerful message encouraging Latinos in Virginia and around the country to vote against Donald Trump this election.

Los Tigres lead singer Jorge Hernández stated during the concert on Sunday, “We invite you, our friends, to vote. We can’t vote for racists. Those of us that can, must vote so we can be better in this country.”

“We are for Hillary!”  Hernán Hernández, the group’s bass player, declared to the audience.

Heralded by Billboard as: “the voice of the people…and  the most influential regional Mexican group in the United States,” Los Tigres del Norte further elaborated on the importance of voting—and voting against Trump specifically – after the concert.

“Trump has lost all respect for us, and his politics are very dirty and disrespectful,” said Hernán Hernández in a video released by progressive advocacy group People For the American Way’s Latinos Vote! program. “The only way we can stop this is through turning out to vote against him,” he added.

And, in a new video message to Virginians, the band also urged all who can register to vote to make sure to do so before Virginia’s voter registration deadline, October 17th: “Friends of Virginia! Register, before October 17th,” they exclaimed.

The band is working with PFAW’s Latinos Vote! campaign on Get Out the Vote efforts. “We’re joining with Los Tigres del Norte because their message that we cannot let Trump and his hate get to the White House is so critical right now,” said PFAW’s Lizet Ocampo. “We can stop Trump. Anyone who’s eligible should make sure they’re registered and ready to vote against Trump, and everyone in our communities can spread the word that we won’t stand for Trump’s hate. All of us can encourage our friends, family, and neighbors who can vote to make sure to register to vote and cast their ballots against Trump.”

PFAW Reacts to Troy Newman Trump Endorsement & Trump’s New Effort to Reach Women

Today, at nearly the same time that Donald Trump rolled out a policy package designed to address his struggle winning the support of women voters, radical anti-choice activist Troy Newman endorsed the Trump-Pence ticket.

Reaction from People For the American Way Executive Vice President Marge Baker:

“Trump’s new policy rollout is a desperate effort to gain support from women. Throughout Trump’s campaign and entire career he’s insulted women, spoken out against working women, and shown an utter disregard for the issues that women and families face every day. He can’t paper over that history with an insufficient set of proposals that fail to address the deep challenges faced by women and families.

“In addition to the flawed policies just released, Troy Newman’s endorsement today demonstrates why most women will never support Trump. Troy Newman is one of the most extreme anti-choice leaders in America, with a long history of appalling rhetoric. In a book he co-authored, he argued that the government has a responsibility to execute abortion providers. His co-author? She served federal prison time for trying to bomb an abortion clinic. In a press release today, Newman declared of Trump, ‘No other GOP ticket in history has made such commitments to the Pro-life Movement.’

“If Trump is anti-choice enough to gain the support of someone as radical as Troy Newman, he’s extreme enough to be unpalatable to most women voters, no matter what last-ditch efforts Trump makes to appeal to us.”

To arrange an interview with a PFAW spokesperson on women voters in the 2016 election and today’s campaign developments, please email media@pfaw.org.

People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.

Radical Anti-Choice Activist Troy Newman Endorses Trump, Citing His 'Commitments' To The Movement

Troy Newman, the anti-choice activist behind Operation Rescue and the Center for Medical Progress, formally endorsed Donald Trump for president today, writing that “[n]o other GOP ticket in history has made such commitments to the Pro-life Movement.”

Newman’s endorsement is yet another sign that Trump has promised enough to the anti-choice movement to get even the movement’s most extreme activists on his side.

As we wrote in a report on Newman last year:

Troy Newman does not speak in the polished talking points of more prominent anti-abortion leaders. Instead, he pickets in front of schools with posters of aborted fetuses, calls women who have had abortions “murderers,” thinks emergency contraception is also “murder,” and has blamed everything from the AIDS epidemic to the 9/11 terrorist attacks to the current drought in California on God’s disapproval of legal abortion.

Newman has, in recent years, attempted to distance himself from anti-abortion violence, and has never advocated for it directly, but has a troubling history of sympathy for those who take a more violent stand.

Newman’s second in command at Operation Rescue is Cheryl Sullenger, who has spent time in prison for conspiring to bomb an abortion clinic. In 2003, after anti-abortion activist Paul Hill shot and killed an abortion provider and his bodyguard in Florida, Newman called Hill a “political prisoner” and said that Hill should have been allowed to argue in court that his crime was justifiable homicide. In a book he published in the early 2000s, Newman wrote that the U.S. was facing God’s judgment in part because the government had “abrogated its responsibility” to execute “convicted” abortion providers.

In a press release announcing his endorsement of Trump, Newman notes that he attended the meeting that Trump held for conservative religious activists in June and writes that Trump’s promise to appoint anti-choice Supreme Court justices and his pick of Mike Pence as his running mate were enough to convince him that he will be on the anti-choice movement’s side:

"After examining Trump's position on life issues and his assurances that he will appoint conservative, pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, I am convinced that Trump offers our best hope of pushing back the Culture of Death in America," said Newman. "We know all too well what we will get with Hillary Clinton, and that is more abortion, more tax funding of abortion, and favors for her campaign contributors at Planned Parenthood. A Clinton presidency will result in more dead babies, and this we cannot allow."

Newman understands the moral conflicts some hesitant pro-life adherents have expressed, but warns against sitting out this election or writing in a name with no chance of winning.

"America stands at a crossroads. A Clinton presidency will fundamentally change our nation to the point that is will be unrecognizable to those of us who grew up in the 50's and 60's," said Newman. "Her rabid support for abortion without restriction will create a climate that will make it nearly impossible for us to end the shedding of innocent blood through abortion once and for all.

"On the other hand, Trump has promised to stand strongly for life and appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. His Vice-Presidential running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, is a pro-life warrior who has promised to work toward ending abortion. No other GOP ticket in history has made such commitments to the Pro-life Movement.

Walid Shoebat: Hillary Clinton's Pneumonia Is Really A Sign Of Demonic Possession

Walid Shoebat, the extremist right-wing activist behind the bogus smear of Khizr Khan, is out with a new post explaining what is "really" behind Hillary Clinton's recent bout of pneumonia: demon possession.

As Shoebat explains, Clinton once reportedly held an imaginary conversation with Eleanor Roosevelt and that opened her up to demonic possession which is now manifesting itself as various health problems: 

Houston, according to Clinton, suggested an imaginary meeting between Clinton and the deceased Eleanor Roosevelt. The First Lady duly submitted to the “visioning” and “role-playing” game. Bob Woodward’s book The Choice revealed this exercise publicly in 1996. The New York Post and the Daily News labeled Houston “Hillary’s Guru” and the Boston Herald dubbed her the “First Lady’s Spiritual Adviser”.

So we do not need confirmation from Ripperger to what happens when one dabbles, there are several videos where he explains that no matter what types of channeling people do, the results are similar, where one invites oppression or even demonic possession by participating in only one of these practices.

...

The election is around the corner. Unless Hillary converts to Christianity, her condition is permanent.

Of course, today’s world cannot admit, all this is simply symptoms of demonic possession or affliction. However one sees this situation, Hillary’s symptoms are crystal clear which has every single element in the combination symptoms she displays. According to Edward Klein’s forthcoming book, Unlikeable — The Problem with Hillary, “political insiders” say Hillary is tired, depressed, and plagued by “blinding headaches,” bouts of insomnia, and “near-fainting spells” on the campaign trail which are kept secret.

All the examples can be found explained by dabblers where psychiatrists simply lump as psychosomatic. The attractions to opening the portal of the demonic realm is everywhere, no matter what label the media slaps or cellophane wrap ancient demonic channeling, people and voters need to beware.

Todd Starnes: Liberals 'Hate America' And Obama Doesn't Like Us

Fox News outrage machine Todd Starnes used his signature brand of skewed reporting last week to claim that innocuous comments that President Obama recently made to a group of students in Laos mean that the president doesn’t like America and thinks that American workers are lazy.

Starnes told Virginia-based radio host Rob Schilling in an interview at the Values Voter Summit on Friday that liberals “hate America” and that the president “does not believe that we are an exceptional nation, and I just don’t think he likes us.”

As evidence, Starnes cited a recent column of his in which he claims Obama “talked about how lazy American” workers are to the Laotian students. “And this is the guy who’s played golf, what, 180-some-odd times talking about American workers being lazy,” he insisted. “And again, it’s part of a routine with this guy that he goes on foreign soil and he disparages America.”

If you’re surprised that you haven’t heard the news that Obama went to Laos to call American workers lazy, it might be because that did not actually happen. Here’s what Obama actually said:

And I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we're such a big country, we haven't always had to know about other parts of the world. If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia, because you're a small country and they’re right next door and you need to know who they are. If you you're in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we're so big we don't have to really know anything about other people.

And that's part of what I'm trying to change, because this is actually the region that's going to grow faster than anyplace else in the world. It has the youngest population, and the economy is growing faster than anyplace. And if we aren't here interacting and learning from you, and understanding the culture of the region, then we'll be left behind. We'll miss an opportunity. And I don't want to that to happen.

Schilling, for his part, said that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “should have been impeached immediately” after she said that South Africa’s constitution might be a better model for a country writing a new constitution today than the United States’.
