BarbWire Pundit: Obama Will Create A 'North American Caliphate' As His 'Final Solution For The USA'

Citing a fabricated quote from “The Audacity of Hope,” which she claims may have actually been written by Bill Ayers, BarbWire columnist Sher Zieve writes today that President Obama is bent on “destroying the USA and replacing its legal citizens with Muslims and other illegals, in order to create a new country of his making.”

According to Zieve, Obama plans to flood the country with Muslim immigrants in order to build his own caliphate.

“Everything Obama and the Islamo-Nazi new world order is now doing is designed to implement the ‘Final Solution’ for the USA, … that of the North American Caliphate which Obama plans to head,” Zieve said.

Obama is destroying the USA and replacing its legal citizens with Muslims and other illegals, in order to create a new country of his making.. Logic requires rational reasoned thought…not emotion and false premises. Thus…I shall attempt to explain it to them for yet one more time. The rest of you—Conservatives specifically–understand perfectly well what’s going on.

Obama Syndicate: Christians are responsible for Islamic Violence and their own deaths! Although they haven’t said it–outright–yet, the Obama syndicate members seem poised to soon say that Christians are actually responsible for their own beheadings and burning of the adults and children..many of them infants. Obama recently said that Christians have done horrible things, too. But—and it’s a big one—he had to go back to the over-a-thousand-years-ago Crusades to make his case. The Crusades were in effect because barbaric and enslaving Islam had taken over Spain and other regions in Europe. In a nutshell, Islam hordes conquered and took Christendom lands, enslaved the people and stole their Holy sites. The Christians fought Islam to get them back. Christianity won. In Obama’s book “Audacity of Hope.” he (or possibly Bill Ayers) writes “…I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”



Everything Obama and the Islamo-Nazi new world order is now doing is designed to implement the “Final Solution” for the USA…that of the North American Caliphate which Obama plans to head. President Ronald Reagan’s “America a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere” will be destroyed and extinguished at last. As it is, the flicker of my home country is very dim now, indeed. As I’ve written before, my ancestral family members built the United States of America from the ground up and I have been witnessing its dismantling. Although I view Barack Hussein Obama as a loathsome creature, even more offensive are those who refused to lift a hand to stop him and those who affected the pretense of being of, for and by the people but, who willingly betrayed their fellow humans for the promise of power in this planned New Dark World and a few pieces of silver. And, to them, I say whether you choose to believe it or not truth is truth and our Creator God is watching. Even so, Lord, come soon…

E.W. Jackson: God Will Punish America For Embracing Marriage Equality

When E.W. Jackson ran for lieutenant governor of Virginia in 2013, he flatly denied making a litany of extreme anti-gay statements, despite the fact that there were plenty of audio and video records of his remarks. Now, with the campaign over, Jackson seems to be less shy about his views on gay rights. 

On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” Jackson told broadcaster Rick Wiles that marriage equality for same-sex couples will lead to divine punishment on America, which Wiles speculated might be in the form of a Russian invasion.

Jackson said that if the U.S. doesn’t adopt a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage to “protect us against this onslaught,” then conservatives must prepare for a “long haul fight of civil disobedience and refusal to go along with the program and having Christians punished and incarcerated and fined and lose their jobs.”

“Of course, there’s a third possibility, which is a spiritual possibility, and that is that because of our absolute rebellion against God in this issue, which is exactly what is happening, because of our absolute rebellion against God, the judgment of God will fall on my beloved country in a way that I don’t desire to see and no American should as a result of the fact that we are literally shaking our fist at God,” Jackson said. “That’s not a happy or blessed or hopeful position for a nation to be in and I certainly don’t want my country in that position, but that’s where we are.”

Wiles went on to tell Jackson that “we are going to get clobbered very soon if we don’t turn around as a nation,” pointing to “warning signs” such as Russian submarines and warships near the U.S. and Great Britain.

Morse: 'Radical Sexual Revolutionaries' Using Divorce And Gay Marriage To Expand 'Power Of The State'

The Ruth Institute’s Jennifer Roback Morse joined Phyllis Schlafly on “Eagle Forum Live” last week for a special Valentine’s Day episode on how “radical sexual revolutionaries” are destroying marriage and the family.

Morse told Schlafly that the “goal all along” of the “radical feminists” and “radical sexual revolutionaries
was to advocate for liberalized divorce laws in order “to break down that dividing line between public and private and just scoot that family court right into your living room, right into the backseat of your minivan, right into your bedroom and taking jurisdiction over the life of the family.”

“This is a gross expansion of the power of the state,” she said. “And gay marriage will only accelerate that, because gay marriage now will create a whole series of situations where family courts will be deciding who actually counts as a parent in the first place.”

Huckabee on AR-15s: 'A Pencil Is An Assault Weapon If You Poke It In Someone's Eye'

Last month, Mike Huckabee gave a talk on his new book, “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy” at the church he attends in Florida, the Destiny Worship Center.

Huckabee spent most of the talk deriding New York, Washington, D.C. and Hollywood as “bubbles” that don’t represent real America, which he said is found in the South and Midwest.

As an example of how New Yorkers are ignorant of true American culture and “think we’re crazy,” Huckabee recounted the tale of how he humiliated a New York media elitist Fox News staffer during a debate about guns by suggesting that a pencil is just as much an assault weapon as an AR-15:

I’ll never forget sitting around with my own staff at Fox News, New Yorkers all, and something came up about guns and they were saying about how ‘nobody should ever own an AR-15, there’s just no reason to own an assault weapon.’ And I said, ‘Every weapon is an assault weapon, a pencil is an assault weapon if you poke it in someone’s eye.’ Then I really shocked them when I said, ‘AR-15s, I got several of them.’ They were scared to death, I thought they were going to dive under the table, I really did, it was like they were, ‘He’s a psychopath.’

Huckabee boasted that he schooled the New Yorkers who worried about the dangers of the weapons: “You’re just looking at it and you think because you saw it on a Rambo movie that it must be more lethal than anything else, and I said that’s nonsense.”

Allen West Says He Isn't A Conspiracy Theorist, Just Wants To Know Why Obama Backs America's Enemies

Former Rep. Allen West stopped by “Trunews” yesterday, where he chatted with Rick Wiles about his belief that politicians must begin calling out President Obama as an Islamist.

Following Wiles’s claim that “the reason the Obama administration cannot identify the enemy is because they are the enemy,” West said “that’s something for the American people to come to an understanding of.”

West, who now heads the National Center for Policy Analysis, said that while he is definitely not a conspiracy theorist, he thinks people must begin asking the question: “Whose side is this administration and these people really on?”

E.W. Jackson On Obama: 'I Don't Know If He's Mentally Ill' But He Definitely Speaks Arabic, Hates America

Far-right radio host Rick Wiles invited Republican politician E.W. Jackson onto “Trunews” yesterday to discuss whether, in Wiles’ words, President Obama “has a diabolical plan to transform America into an Islamic nation or is mentally ill.”

“Maybe there’s a juxtaposition between those two,” Jackson responded. “His behavior almost suggests a kind of delusion…. I don’t know if he’s mentally ill but I do know he does not think like most Americans think.”

Jackson, the right-wing pastor and unsuccessful GOP nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, added that the president “does not behave or think like most Americans” because “his orientation, his background is such that from the perspective of the average American, he thinks like something other than an American.”

While Jackson couldn’t say one way or the other if the president is mentally ill or a secret Islamist, he claimed that he knows for a fact that Obama speaks Arabic because he “heard” that once: “Apparently he speaks Arabic, at least that’s what I have heard, that he does speak Arabic.”

“The damage he has done is absolutely immense, it is staggering,” Jackson lamented. “President Barack Obama is really engaged in a fundamental betrayal of our country.”

After Wiles contended that Obama is actually “an agent placed in this country to destroy the United States,” Jackson claimed Obama “clearly has a mindset that is destructive of our republic” and “clearly is someone that one has to acknowledge is destructive of everything this country represents.”

Larry Klayman: Obama Can't Swear To The Constitution Because He's A Muslim

Judicial Watch founder and right-wing legal activist Larry Klayman claimed in an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg today that President Obama “sympathizes with the so-called Muslim faith” and “everything he does nearly is based on favoring his own people, which is Muslims and African Americans.”

“He thinks like a Muslim, he believes that he is a Muslim, he obviously does worship the Koran,” Klayman said. “He obviously is in fact biased against people who are not of his claimed religion and otherwise.”

He added that President Obama’s supposed Muslim faith makes him unable to swear allegiance to the Constitution.

“Given the fact that the president is a Muslim at heart and half-Muslim by birth, he can’t even swear to the Constitution because you have to swear on the Holy Bible of Judeo-Christians,” he explained. “This president obviously believes in Sharia law, and as a result he has no respect for this Constitution, which was founded by our founding fathers under Judeo-Christian principles.”

Klayman told Malzberg that his call last year for Obama to “put the Quran down, get up off your knees and come out with your hands up” was just “what the country has been thinking but nobody says.”

He cited a number of discredited anti-Obama conspiracy theories, including that Obama attended an Islamic “madrassa” as a child, that he admitted to George Stephanopoulos that he is a Muslim, that he is running a campaign to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that he wears a secret Muslim wedding ring.

“Let’s be blunt, and I don’t mean this in a racist way, but if he had been Richard Nixon and he had been Caucasian, he would have been gone by now,” Klayman concluded.

Richard Land: Obama Pushing America Into Civil War

On Tuesday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Religious Right leader Richard Land suggested that President Obama is pushing America into a Civil War.

Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s policy arm, said Obama is “increasingly reminding me of James Buchanan” who “was just sort of responsible for fiddling in the White House while secessionism gathered steam and gathered force and the southern states went about their process of fomenting revolt and secession.”

“You know, the inaction and the willful disbelief and the inertia of Buchanan were major contributors to the national conflagration that almost rent us asunder as a nation in the Civil War,” Land continued. “And I have to ask myself, is history repeating itself? I hope not.”

Later in the program, Jerry Boykin of the Family Research Council said that it is an incontrovertible fact that Obama supports violent extremists who claim to represent Islam.

Boykin, a bizarre conspiracy theorist who opposes religious freedom for Muslim-Americans, told Land that there is “no question” that the president “has been very sympathetic to Islam.”

“His pattern has been one of being very supportive of the Islamic jihadists because he has been unwilling to identify what motivates them,” Boykin said.

Rep. Ted Yoho: US Can't Fight ISIS When 'We're Taking God Out Of This Country'

In an interview on Newsmax today, Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., criticized President Obama’s recent summit on violent extremism as a “feel-good thing on something that’s very serious” and contended that what America really needs to do to fight extremism at home and abroad is to stop “taking God out of this country.”

Yoho told host J.D. Hayworth and fellow guest Michael Flanagan, both former GOP congressman: “Congressman Flanagan said we’ve got to get God back into a lot of these principles in our country that we were founded on, and I agree. We’re taking God out of this country, they’re fighting for their God, and all I can say is the person who has God on their side is going to win this. And I think we all need to huddle around and get back to some basics in this country.”

Pat Robertson: Serving Same-Sex Couple Like Serving Man-Dog Wedding

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson criticized a Washington judge’s ruling that a florist who denied service to a same-sex couple seeking flowers for their wedding violated a state antidiscrimination law, calling the verdict “crazy.”

“This is outrageous,” Robertson said, “To tell a florist that she’s got to provide flowers for a particular kind of wedding? What if somebody wanted to marry his dog? She’s got to have flowers for that? What if there’s a polygamous situation where a guy has five wives and he wants to have five ceremonies and she’s going to be forced by the law to provide them flowers? This is crazy.”

He then pointed to a case from the 1980s in which a federal court ruled that Georgetown University must accommodate a gay student group to argue that schools and businesses should shut down rather than accommodate gay people.

The Next Personhood Battle: South Carolina?

Personhood USA, the group that has pushed fetal personhood measures in states including Colorado, Mississippi and North Dakota, told supporters in an email today that its next target will be South Carolina.

The group’s president, Keith Mason, boasted to supporters of the “victory” of a nonbinding resolution supporting a personhood amendment on last year’s Republican primary ballot in South Carolina. He did not specify if the group will be advocating for a state-level ballot initiative or a legislative approach, or both. A personhood amendment currently pending in the state legislature is sponsored by Lee Bright, who was a Tea Party-supported U.S. Senate candidate in 2014.

The recent failures of state-level personhood measures led former Personhood USA official Gualberto Garcia Jones to declare last year that the strategy was “dead for now.” Evidently, Mason disagrees.

Right now, Friend, we need your help to publicly launch our South Carolina initiative.

  • We've identified 250,000 pro-life voters in South Carolina that we want to activate to support personhood, and vote in upcoming primaries and elections.
  • This initiative follows on the heels of a personhood victory this summer, in which 79% of South Carolina GOP primary voters called for a personhood amendment to the state constitution. Right now, there's personhood legislation in the state legislature that needs our support!
  • South Carolina is a vital state in the lead up to 2016. We need to engage and activate the pro-life voters we've identified so that they turn out to support pro-life candidates!

David Barton: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's SOTU Nap Was An Impeachable Offense

David Barton is outraged that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg nodded off during the State of the Union address last month, which Ginsburg attributed to the “very fine California wine” that Justice Anthony Kennedy had shared at dinner that evening.

Barton writes in a WorldNetDaily column today that while he isn’t personally “calling for the removal of Ginsburg for her recent faux pas,” Justice Ginsburg’s nap represented bad behavior and disrespect to the U.S. Constitution, both offenses warranting impeachment and removal from office.

You may recall pictures of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sitting on the front row in the House Chamber sleeping during President Obama’s State of the Union Address. News recently broke explaining why: “I wasn’t 100 percent sober.”

A State of the Union message is a constitutionally mandated duty (Article II, Section 3), and for those who respect the Constitution, this address is serious stuff. But apparently not to Justice Ginsburg – which probably is not surprising given that her rulings routinely reflect a general dismissal of the Constitution and that she publicly advises leaders in other nations to seek something better than the U. S. Constitution for their country.

Regardless, it is certain that public intoxication by a Supreme Court justice does not inspire faith in the Judiciary. Luther Martin (one of the 55 delegates who framed the U. S. Constitution) warned: “It is necessary that the supreme judiciary should have the confidence of the people,” and to ensure this, the founders made certain that the federal bench could be ridded of those who embarrassed or misused it.

Citizens today might be dubious of such a statement, for we have long been told (and wrongly so) that federal judges have lifetime appointments. They do not – and it was the Founding Fathers themselves who specifically stipulated that federal judges could serve only for the duration of “good behavior” (Article III, Section 1). So as long as a judge acted right, he could stay on the bench, but if he acted otherwise, he could be removed. Nowhere in the Constitution is there any mention of, much less guarantee for, lifetime appointments for judges.

The first federal judge to be removed from the bench came at the behest of President Thomas Jefferson. That judge, John Pickering, was no obscure lightweight. Originally placed on the federal bench by President George Washington, Pickering had been a framer of the New Hampshire Constitution, served as the state’s governor, was selected as a delegate to frame the U.S. Constitution (but declined) and was subsequently a ratifier of the federal Constitution. So why was he removed? Among the reasons given was public intoxication (as well as a public disrespect for God). The Founding Fathers considered this to be bad behavior for a judge.

Don’t think I am calling for the removal of Ginsburg for her recent faux pas. Rather, I am pointing out that the current notion that federal judges are unaccountable because they have lifetime appointments is one of the greatest lies of our lifetime.



If America ever again expects the federal courts to be just one of three so-called “co-equal” branches rather than the supreme branch they have become, then we must recover the notion that our federal judges are not unaccountable demigods.

Steve King: Syrian 'Quasi-Refugees' Are 'The Sources Of Death And Violence'

Rep. Steve King is furious that the U.S. plans to increase the number of refugees from the Syrian Civil War admitted into the U.S. from just 500 to between 1,000 and 2,000, which the Iowa Republican said is actually a plan to resettle “tens of thousands” of “quasi-refugees.”

“The President just appears to have no fear of the consequences of doing stupid things,” King said during an interview today on Newsmax. “You’re not going to get Syria fixed if you take the people out of there that need to be the ones doing that work to fix it and there’s no way to avoid through that network of getting ISIS members and terrorist and future terrorists brought into America. That’s like creating a hole and bringing people through it.”

King, who is one of the GOP’s top anti-immigrant voices, said President Obama “seems to believe that he can pour people into America here that we know are the sources of death and violence.”

Cruz And Jindal Join Far-Right Activists at Frank Gaffney 'Defeat Jihad' Forum

Last week, anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy hosted a who’s who of far-right activists including Rick Joyner, Jerry Boykin, Diana West, Andy McCarthy, Clare Lopez and others at an all-day “Defeat Jihad Summit” meant to be a conservative alternative to President Obama’s summit on violent extremism today.

Joining them were a number of prominent Republican politicians, including Sen. Ted Cruz and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who submitted a speech by video. Also speaking at the summit were Republican Reps. Steve King, Mike Pompeo and Scott Perry, who used the opportunity to accuse Obama of siding with “the enemy of freedom” in the Mideast. 

A major theme in the speeches at the summit was that “political correctness” has forced American leaders, including Republicans, into failing to criticize Islam as a whole, rather than just violent extremists who claim to represent Islam.

One speaker, Stephen Coughlin, who was fired as a Pentagon contractor under President Bush, urged Republicans to resist kneeling “at the altar of racism, sexism and homophobia” because “political correctness” is just a way to “mainstream Islamic slander law in America.”

Another speaker, conservative pundit Diana West, also cautioned Republicans against “political correctness,” saying that the fact that politicians criticize Islamic radicalism rather than Islam in general shows that “we are operating under Islamic slander law that prohibits the criticism of Islam.”

She drew several parallels to Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s efforts to root out communists in the U.S. government, which she said has been unfairly maligned.

Frank Gaffney: Pope Francis 'Gladdened Joseph Stalin's Heart'

Last week, Frank Gaffney invited Cliff Kincaid of the right-wing group Accuracy In Media to discuss Pope Francis on his “Secure Freedom Radio” program, and unsurprisingly, neither are fans of the new pope.

After Kincaid railed against the pope for acknowledging the science behind climate change and playing a role in the normalization of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba, Gaffney said that the pope’s “leftist, if not downright Marxist direction might have gladdened Joseph Stalin’s heart.”

Gaffney, who just led a conference featuring likely Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal, also spoke with Kincaid about how, in Kincaid’s words, the Pope is “sounding much like Obama” with his “socialist nonsense.”

Kincaid alleged that President Obama and Pope Francis are both working together to restore the Soviet Union: “It looks like Pope Francis is working with Obama to reconstitute the old Soviet empire.”

E.W. Jackson: Civil Disobedience Needed To Stop Gay Rights And Impending Doom

E.W. Jackson, the anti-gay activist and unsuccessful GOP nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, hosted a conference call this weekend to discuss his upcoming “National Reconciliation Service in Response to Ferguson and Racial Unrest.”

Jackson said America suffers from a “lack of leadership,” which explains “why we have a Supreme Court and many federal district courts that really don’t care about what the true definition of marriage is and have decided that they’re going to rewrite the rules with regards to marriage.”

“What’s next?” he asked. “Are we just going to head into the abyss of moral and spiritual and cultural relativism in which nothing matters but who has the might, power, the influence to make something happen, to make it acceptable, that there is no ultimate right and wrong, no absolutes? Is that where we’re going? It seems to be. We’re coming to a time where we’re going to have to stand up against it even if it means civil disobedience, even if it means going to jail.”

Jackson also criticized President Obama, who Jackson believes is an “evil presence” and most likely a Muslim, for being “so quick to condemn our country, so quick to condemn Christianity and so dead-set on defending Islam, no matter what, defend Islam.”

“Unless we speak clearly, unless pastors speak clearly to what is actually happening in our country, we are doomed,” Jackson said.

Roy Moore's Acolytes: 5 Ways Anti-Gay Activists Have Lionized Alabama's Chief Justice

Back in 2003, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore became a hero in the eyes of many Religious Right activists when he defied a court ruling to remove a Ten Commandments monument that he installed in Alabama Supreme Court building's rotunda. After defying a federal court's ruling to move the monument out of the courthouse, Moore was eventually removed from his position by the state's court of the judiciary, only to return to his old post nearly 10 years later after winning the 2012 election.

Now, Moore is back in the national spotlight thanks to his demand that state judges refuse to abide by a federal court ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage. And, once again, right-wing activists are rallying to Moore’s defense, endorsing his claim that state sovereignty and his personal reading of the Bible trump the authority of the federal courts.

Leading anti-gay groups including the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council have defended Moore, portraying his standoff with the federal judiciary as the latest example in their increasingly absurd victimization narrative. As they see it, Moore is facing unfair treatment because of his deeply-held religious beliefs and is taking a courageous stance against judicial overreach... and Satan.

Here are five of the ways that right-wing activists are defending Moore's anti-gay campaign:

5) Roy Moore Is Just Like Martin Luther King, Jr.

American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer is upset that some critics have compared Moore to the Southern leaders who openly defied federal laws and court orders during the civil rights era. Fischer, for his part, thinks that Moore is more like civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.

Seeing that Fischer believes that gay rights laws have put "Jim Crow laws right back in operation" for Christians, it was only a matter of time before he argued that Moore is actually acting like King by "waging the civil rights battle of this decade."

The federal judge in the marriage case, according to Fischer, is the one "standing in the doorway" like Alabama Gov. George Wallace and following in the footsteps of Jim Crow supporters.

4) Roy Moore Is Just Like The Apostle Paul

After interviewing Moore on her radio program, American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios said that "Justice Moore in Alabama is standing on solid ground" while "the other justices around the country and attorneys general who have rushed to accommodate these federal judges have been out of line in doing that."

Rios added that "if the law contradicts something God has said in scripture" then people should "disobey the law."

"You may, like Justice Moore, lose your job, you may, like [the Apostle] Paul, lose your life," she said. "Some people may not like the way Justice Moore has done this but I admire any man who follows God, who is willing to give up things very precious to him in order to take a stand."

3) Roy Moore Is Stopping Satan In His Tracks

Cindy Jacobs, a self-proclaimed prophet, said God told her that Alabama will become a beacon of light to the nation that will stop Satan's control over the judiciary.

Jacobs proclaimed: "God says, 'There will be an anointing come out of Alabama that is going to reserve the judicial activism that has been in this nation,' says God. 'I am going to give weight to your voice, I am going to give strength to your voice, I say Alabama will be a first fruit state that will be a bastion that will begin to undo the agendas to take the values of Jesus Christ out of this nation,' God says. 'And I'm going to use Alabama to reverse what Satan has done and it will tip the nation.'"

2) Roy Moore Is Stopping Non-Existent Hate Speech Laws

The right-wing legal group Liberty Counsel has praised Moore and pledged to "aggressively defend" any Alabama judge who follows his orders to refuse marriage licenses to same-sex couples. These judges, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver wrote in an email to supporters, are facing "an all-out assault from radical homosexual organizations, which are threatening and demonizing these law-abiding judges.”

Although Staver told supporters last week that Liberty Counsel had “filed suit to have same-sex 'marriages' [in Alabama] cease until the United States Supreme Court rules on the issue early this summer," he told a conservative radio network just a day earlier that he thinks the state "does not have to obey" any Supreme Court decision that favors marriage equality.

Staver even claimed that Moore is preventing Alabama from following in the footsteps of states where "Christians and people of faith and values have been silenced through ‘hate speech’ laws."

Of course, laws prohibiting hate speech are unconstitutional and do not exist anywhere in America.

1) Roy Moore Stopping God's Wrath

The Alabama Republican Party is thrilled that Moore is flouting federal courts. Its chairman, Bill Armistead, wrote on the state party website that Moore's actions may fend off divine wrath:

So, how is it that God’s truth can be turned on its head as the debate now rages in Alabama regarding the meaning of marriage? The answer is that we, as a society, have become our own god. We have made God in our image. But, God will not be mocked. The State of Alabama and the United States of America will reap God’s wrath if we embrace and condone things that are abhorrent to God, such as redefining marriage as anything other than a union between one man and one woman.

Oklahoma Advances Extremist Lawmaker's Bill To Fire Any Clerk Who Follows Gay Marriage Rulings

Yesterday, the Oklahoma House Judiciary Committee advanced legislation that would prohibit judges and clerks in the state from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, despite federal court decisions striking down the state’s ban.

Along with “prohibiting public funds for any activity licensing or supporting same-sex marriage; prohibiting public employees from recognizing same-sex marriage licenses; prohibiting spending public funds to enforce certain court orders,” the constitutionally dubious bill [PDF] also states that “[n]o employee of this state and no employee of any local governmental entity shall violate or interfere with the implementation of this act and continue to receive a salary, pension or other employee benefit at the expense of taxpayers of this state. If a judge violates this act, the judge shall be removed from office.”

The chief sponsor of the legislation just so happens to be Sally Kern, the Republican lawmaker who has repeatedly declared that homosexuality is a “bigger threat” and “more dangerous” than terrorism. As Kern explains it, homosexuality is more dangerous than terrorist attacks because homosexuality will “destroy the future of America.”

“So which one’s the biggest threat? And you know, every day our young people, adults too, but especially our young people, are bombarded at school, in movies, in music, on TV, in the mall, in magazines, they’re bombarded with ‘homosexuality is normal and natural.’ It’s something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that’s what I mean,” Kern said back in 2011.

Kern also wants to make it law that any business can legally discriminate against “any lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person, group or association.”

She has also expressed several unusual opinions on education, suggesting that African Americans are less likely to study in school than white students since they believe “the government would take care of them,” demanding teachers criticize evolution in the classroom and embarking on a crusade against AP U.S. History courses.

The Libre Initiative: The Koch Brothers’ New Focus on Winning Latino Voters

Today, People For the American Way released a new Right Wing Watch: In Focus report on the Libre Initiative, a right-wing organization attempting to win over Latino voters for the Republican Party. The report explores the Koch brothers’ control over Libre, the values the group espouses, and the deceptive tactics it uses.

With plans to spend nearly $1 billion to support conservatives in 2016, it should come as no surprise that the Koch brothers are behind a group like Libre, providing at least half of its funding in 2011 and 2012.

The group uses those funds to attempt to push for a range of conservative policy priorities, such as fighting increases in the minimum wage. As the report explains, Libre tries to send a “kinder and gentler Republican message to Latino voters while continuing to push the GOP’s economic policies — many of which disproportionately hurt Latinos.”

In 2014, Libre invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in attack ads — technically “nonpartisan” —  to attack Democratic incumbents in heavily Latino states and districts. Although the group nominally supports comprehensive immigration reform, in several cases its ads aided Republican candidates who were hostile to reform.

In the next election cycle, conservatives will use gobs of outside money to try to win over Latino voters. In the meantime, PFAW will remain committed to engage all communities in our political system, fight to reduce the harmful influence of corporate money (including the Kochs’) in politics, and expose the deceitful tactics of the Right.
