Pat Buchanan Sad Americans Don't Appreciate Confederate Leaders Robert E. Lee And Stonewall Jackson Anymore

Pat Buchanan writes today that for centuries, America was one nation without any divisions…never mind those whole slavery, Native American genocide and gender oppression things.

“We were not a nation of immigrants in 1789,” Buchanan insists, which might be news to Native Americans. Only in the 1960s, he claims, did America begin to fall apart, adding that African Americans under Jim Crow “enjoyed freedom and prosperity.”

He laments that America is now experiencing Balkanization and de-Christianization — to the benefit of Islam and same-sex marriage supporters — and neglecting heroes like Confederate leaders Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.

“Columbus is reviled. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee are out of the pantheon. Cesar Chavez is in,” he writes. Because nothing says “one nation” like attempting to secede from the union.

Speaking to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Albuquerque in 2001, George W. Bush declared that, as Mexico was a friend and neighbor, “It’s so important for us to tear down our barriers and walls that might separate Mexico from the United States.”

Bush succeeded. And during his tenure, millions from Mexico exploited his magnanimity to violate our laws, trample upon our sovereignty, walk into our country and remain here.

In 2007, supported by John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy and Barack Obama, Bush backed amnesty for the 12 million people who had entered America illegally.

The nation thundered no. And Congress sustained the nation.



The real issue: Will America remain one nation, or are we are on the road to Balkanization and the breakup of America into ethnic enclaves? For, as Ronald Reagan said, a nation that cannot control its borders isn’t really a nation anymore.



We were not a nation of immigrants in 1789.

They came later. From 1845-1849, the Irish fleeing the famine. From 1890-1920, the Germans. Then the Italians, Poles, Jews and other Eastern Europeans. Then, immigration was suspended in 1924.

From 1925 to 1965, the children and grandchildren of those immigrants were assimilated, Americanized. In strong public schools, they were taught our language, literature and history, and celebrated our holidays and heroes. We endured together through the Depression and sacrificed together in World War II and the Cold War.

By 1960, we had become truly one nation and one people.

America was not perfect. No country is. But no country ever rivaled what America had become. She was proud, united, free, the first nation on earth. And though the civil rights movement had just begun, nowhere did black peoples enjoy the freedom and prosperity of African-Americans.



But we are no longer that “band of brethren.” We are no longer one unique people “descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion.”

We are from every continent and country. Nearly 4 in 10 Americans trace their ancestry to Asia, Africa and Latin America. We are a multiracial, multilingual, multicultural society in a world where countless countries are being torn apart over race, religion and roots.

We no longer speak the same language, worship the same God, honor the same heroes or share the same holidays. Christmas and Easter have been privatized. Columbus is reviled. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee are out of the pantheon. Cesar Chavez is in.

Our politics have become poisonous. Our political parties are at each other’s throats.

Christianity is in decline. Traditional churches are sundering over moral issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. Islam is surging.

Fox Host Gretchen Carlson Warns Seinfeld's 'Festivus' Promotes Anti-Christian Persecution

Today, the far-right website WorldNetDaily interviewed Fox News host Gretchen Carlson and Fred Thompson, the former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate, about their roles in the new film “Persecuted,” a thriller about looming anti-Christian oppression in the U.S.

While Thompson pointed to Obamacare and the Hobby Lobby case as examples of the government persecuting Christians, Carlson once again highlighted the real force crushing the freedoms of Christians in America: Seinfeld.

She told WorldNetDaily that “Festivus,” the secular holiday popularized by the 1997 Seinfeld episode “The Strike,” is helping “erode” America’s “heritage” and “strip our society of certain things that have been in existence for a long time.”

Carlson also pointed to a lack of Christmas spirit and a dearth of tourists viewing a copy of the Bill of Rights on a recent visit she took to Washington D.C. as a sign of looming anti-Christian oppression.

“The movie is not a documentary,” Thompson told WND in an exclusive interview. “It is a takeoff on governmental power and those in government who legislate what they feel like is a good idea – on how people ought to conduct themselves, promote their religion and the message they should be delivering.

“Whether you’re talking about on the airwaves and ‘equal time’ or Obamacare or things of that nature, we’re in that territory now,” Thompson warned. “So again, this is not a documentary; it shows what can happen.



With a provocative title like “Persecuted,” WND asked Thompson and Carlson just how realistic is the film and the concept of “persecution” of Christians in America?

“More realistic than some of the space movies that get popular,” Thompson joked. “But it’s realistic certainly to the extent that these things are possible. The idea of those in government and powerful positions being able to carry out nefarious activities is more than possible, and in this particular case, though we haven’t seen anybody go to the extent they go to in this movie, the notion of a religious person preaching the gospel running up against the government and governmental policies – or those who want to carry out a business and running up against governmental regulations and rules – is not far-fetched at all. In fact, we’re seeing that happen as we speak in the Hobby Lobby case and in some other cases coming down the pike.”

“Over the last decade, I do believe there has been more emphasis on trying to strip our society of certain things that have been in existence for a long time,” added Carlson, “such as lawsuits to take crosses down in the western part of our country, lawsuits to take out the word ‘God’ from our money or not allowing our kids to say it in their valedictorian speeches, forces pushing for atheists to lead campus Christian groups and petitions at state governors’ offices during the Christmas season to put up a ‘Festivus pole’ – from the made-up holiday of ‘Festivus’ from the ‘Seinfeld’ TV show – next to a Christian crèche on public lands.

“As a journalist, I see these stories frequently,” she said, “and I just want to make sure Americans realize if you don’t stand up and take notice of some of these things happening, before you know it, our heritage starts to erode.

“For me, during the Christmas season, I don’t want to take my kids around in the car to see all the crèches in the town where I live in and hear them say, ‘Mom, where are they? I don’t see them anymore,’” Carlson said.

Her concerns are widely shared, but do those stories actually rise to the level of “persecution”?

“In most countries in the world, we’re seeing persecution [against Christians] in the extreme – people are losing their lives,” Thompson told WND. “While that sort of thing is not happening in the United States, we have the potential. Sooner or later, it can be done.



“When I was in Washington, D.C., just recently with my children, seeing the original Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights, we had an interesting experience,” Carlson related. “Our tour guide noted security guards standing next to the Declaration and Constitution, and that’s where the long lines of people were, but when you go over to the Bill of Rights, there are no security guards and the lines start to diminish.

PFAW Applauds House Introduction of Amendment to Get Big Money out of Politics

WASHINGTON — Today a companion resolution to the Senate’s Joint Resolution 19, a proposed constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics, was introduced in the House of Representatives. The Democracy For All Amendment (HJ Res 119) would restore legislators’ ability to put common-sense limits on the raising and spending of money in elections.

People For the American Way Executive Vice President Marge Baker released the following statement:

“On money in politics, Americans of all political stripes have been clear: they want a political system that’s not dominated by corporations and billionaires. Sixteen states, more than 550 municipalities, and thousands of local and state officials have called for an amendment to reclaim our democracy from wealthy special interests. It’s refreshing to see that some of our representatives are listening.

“Today’s resolution introduction is a significant step toward an American democratic system that is truly of, by, and for the people. We thank Reps. Deutch, Edwards, and McGovern for championing this effort from the beginning and Leader Pelosi for her leadership in pushing this critical work forward.”

An edit memo released last month by People For the American Way explains how the proposed amendment would restore the First Amendment and strengthen our democracy. For more information on PFAW’s Government By the People work, click here.

Gun Owners Of America Chief Embraces Fringe 'Obama's Real Father' Birther Theory

Just this morning, we shared a new Rolling Stone profile of Gun Owners of America leader Larry Pratt, who despite his long record of anti-government extremism and association with any number of racist and anti-Semitic radicals continues to be an influential gun lobbyist who gets airtime from the mainstream media and attention from members of Congress.

As if to underscore the point, this weekend Pratt gave an interview to a pair of Patriot movement activists who recently launched a radio show after meeting at the Bundy ranch, where he shared the bizarre fringe birther theory that President Obama is secretly the son of labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, who groomed the president from birth to destroy America from within.

The Frank Marshall Davis birther theory was invented and popularized by right-wing filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who thinks that Obama got plastic surgery in an attempt to hide his resemblance to Davis and who also believes that the president wears a secret Muslim wedding ring and could have been behind the Aurora movie theater shooting .

The “evidence” for Gilbert’s claim — laid out in detail in his 2012 film “Dreams From My Real Father” — is a series of racy photos of a woman who bears a passing resemblance to Obama’s mother (but is not) and his totally scientific opinion that Obama looks more like Davis than like Barack Obama, Sr.

Gilbert’s theory has been panned by traditional birthers, because it undermines their claim that Obama isn’t a natural-born U.S. citizen, but has taken off among those who are seeking other ways to question the president’s origins. It was most notably endorsed by Bill Armistead, the chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, who said in 2012 that he had seen Gilbert’s movie and “verified that it is factual, all of it.”

In his interview with “The Liberty Brothers Radio Show,” Pratt presented the Frank Marshall Davis theory as a plausible explanation for why Obama “hates” America.

“His father was either a Kenyan socialist or the Communist Party member who lived across the street, Frank Marshall Davis, and there’s a lot more physical resemblance between the latter and Obama than Obama Sr. and Obama,” he said.

Bringing up the conspiracy theory that Obama enrolled in school as a foreign student, Pratt said that while he doesn’t think the president is foreign-born — “I really think that more likely was that the communist that lived across the street in Hawaii could have been the father” — he does think Obama lied about being a foreign student to get financial aid.

Barney Frank: This Year’s Midterm Elections Define Our Courts

In an op-ed printed in the Portland Press Herald this weekend, retired congressman Barney Frank offers a sharp critique of the far right Supreme Court under John Roberts. Explicitly noting the importance of the Court in defining law that affects all citizens, Frank makes clear not only that courts matter, but everyday citizens have a hand in how these courts are shaped.

Reviewing the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions — from overturning “more than 100 years of federal and state efforts to regulate the role of money in campaigns” to declaring that corporations have the right to religious freedom under RFRA—Frank states that “the court has ended this term with a barrage against laws it does not like” (emphasis added).

He continues,

…The Supreme Court is now strongly inclined to impose conservative ideology via Constitutional interpretation on a broad range of public policy. It is true that Kennedy and to some extent Roberts occasionally deviate from this, but Justice Samuel Alito has surpassed even Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas in his ideological purity.

The relevance of this to the next two elections is very clear. Four of the sitting justices are in their late 70s or older. This means that there is a strong possibility that President Obama will have a chance to appoint another justice before his term expires, but his ability to do so will be determined not simply by the health of the justices in question, but by the composition of the U.S. Senate. The increasing partisanship in the Senate, the continued virulent influence of the tea party and recent history strongly suggest that even if a vacancy occurs, Obama will be prevented from filling it (emphasis added).

Frank refers to the unceasing Republican obstructionism and argues courts are critical for defining laws that affect Americans on a daily basis, highlighting the importance of this year’s midterm elections. As he concludes in this piece,

This makes it highly likely that among the issues that will be determined in the next senatorial and presidential election will be the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court. Voters should act accordingly.

Linda Harvey Warns Joe Biden Is Creating A 'Dictatorship' by 'Defending Deviance'

Joe Biden has been receiving some flak from Religious Right activists for daring to speak out in defense of LGBT rights abroad, actions that Mission America’s Linda Harvey said today make the vice president “sound like a representative of a dictatorship.”

“Vice President Biden is starting to sound like a representative of a dictatorship, one that is determined to roll over other countries regardless of the consequences,” Harvey said on her daily radio bulletin.

“Defending deviance is not a noble position and he is deeply deceived to believe that it is ‘inhumane’ to object to these behaviors. But the current administration is really ramping up its efforts to promote this immorality and the White House went out of its ways to issue many different proclamations to bolster so-called LGBT advocates during the recent June homosexual pride month.”

She also lamented that the U.S. government is “punishing Uganda for its tough new law on homosexuality” and “believes the spin of the homosexual movement over the past twenty years that homosexuals and cross-dresses are suffering violent attacks.”

Bob Vander Plaats Links Terrorism, Gay Rights, Pot Legalization

Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Iowa-based Religious Right group The Family Leader, held a revival event yesterday that also happened to be a good marketing opportunity for his new book about the “urgent call for revival” in America.

Vander Plaats introduced the event — which also featured a Q & A with Chuck Norris and a performance by the Christian rock band the Newsboys — by showing a video of the “darkness” in America that he identified as calling for a spiritual revival. Featured in the video are images of terrorists attacks and mass shootings….along with images of same-sex weddings, the Boy Scouts’ admittance of gay members, Justice Anthony Kennedy, gambling and rallies on behalf of legalizing marijuana.

Vander Plaats mentioned at the end of the video that many of the national leaders he frequently speaks with share these concerns. He’ll have a chance to discuss them in more depth next month, when GOP leaders including Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Tim Scott come to Iowa for Vander Plaat’s annual Family Leadership Summit.

Farah: Anti-Gay Christians Will Face Persecution 'Unlike Anything Previously Experienced In America'

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is not pleased with the recent Politico Magazine story on the increasing embrace of LGBT rights among evangelical Christians. In a column this weekend, Farah took issue with Politico’s description of conservative evangelicals’ “longstanding hostility toward gay people,” calling the description “hellishly bigoted.”

Gay-affirming churches are the “ones who are truly hostile and unloving to homosexuals,” he argues, and “are actually condemning them to death.”

Meanwhile, Farah contends, anti-gay Christians will soon face “persecution and martyrdom” that will be “unlike anything previously experience [sic] in America.”

I just read a Politico magazine piece that demonstrates why biblically minded Christians are becoming the targets of real bigotry and will, almost assuredly, soon be the victims of real persecution – unlike anything previously experience in America.

Titled “Evangelicals are changing their minds on gay marriage,” the article, written by a religion reporter for the Orange County Register, focuses on “The Reformation Project,” which is described as “a nationwide network of pro-gay evangelicals committed to ending their church’s longstanding hostility toward gay people.”

Let me first say that this is a hellishly bigoted comment by people who claim to be fighting bigotry.

Today, in the popular culture, it’s cool to be “gay” – a word that has been hijacked by a political movement that embraces sin.

It may be popular to embrace sin today, but those who do so in the name of Christ are the ones who are truly hostile and unloving to homosexuals. They are actually condemning them to death.

There is nothing loving about rationalizing sin as an alternative lifestyle.

I don’t doubt that there is a new movement within the church that takes this upside-down view of what Christianity is all about.

But notice the way those who disagree with the view – all those who follow biblical Christianity – are portrayed: They are “hostile to gay people.”

Where does that kind of thinking lead?

It leads only one place – bigotry and persecution.

This movement is not about rejecting bigotry as it claims. It is about creating a new form of bigotry – against those with sincerely held, biblically supported worldviews.

Peter LaBarbera Says Doctors Who Perform Sex Reassignment Surgery Should Be Imprisoned

In a Friday appearance on “The Janet Mefferd Show,” Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality criticized “grotesque” and “awful” sex reassignment surgeries for transgender individuals and insisted that the doctors who perform such surgeries should be put in jail.

“These doctors who perform these operations — this should be illegal — these guys need to go to jail, this is almost the most analogues thing to the abortionist on that issue I can think of,” LaBarbera said. “These doctors exploiting these gender confused individuals and making money off of them.”

Earlier in the program, the anti-LGBT activist once again praised the Supreme Court for its decision in the Hobby Lobby case, hailing the court’s ruling as a bulwark against “LGBT tyranny” that should be cited by businesses that seek to refuse to service to LGBT customers.

Ironically, immediately after praising the Supreme Court for watering down the Affordable Care Act in Hobby Lobby, LaBarbera then attacked the court for potentially striking down state bans on same-sex marriage, saying, “We cannot be ruled by nine men and women in robes, by the Supreme Court, they are not supposed to be making law.”

He also called on states to defy any Supreme Court ruling that decides in favor of marriage equality. “I think we need a state like Oklahoma or somewhere where there is a vast, vast majority supporting traditional marriage to say, ‘No, we’re not going to be forced in our state to embrace this counterfeit marriage,’ and I hope that happens,” he said.

Larry Pratt And The Radical Right

Rolling Stone is out today with a lengthy profile of Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, who, as we we frequently note, continues to hold a large amount of sway among Republicans in Congress despite his ongoing record of extremism.

Reporter Alexander Zaitchik digs into Pratt’s history of allying with anti-government militia groups and the anti-Semitic, racist Christian Identity movement. On the afternoon of the Oklahoma City bombing, Pratt implied that Timothy McVeigh had been doing God’s work against a government that was behaving “like a beast.”

Zaitchik also notes Pratt’s early forays into radical Religious Right activism, including calling for a quarantine of AIDS victims in the early days of the epidemic.

The whole profile is worth a read, but here are a few excerpts.

Along with his gun work, Pratt was involved during the Reagan years in a wide range of social and foreign policy issues. He was a member of the Council for National Policy, a think tank bringing together leading conservative figures to generate policy for the new administration. In 1980, he founded the Committee to Protect the Family Foundation, which raised money for anti-gay campaigns and assisted the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue with legal defenses. In 1986, during the depths of the AIDS crisis, Pratt bought ads around the country highlighting a D.C. law forbidding health insurance companies from denying coverage and raising rates for people who test positive for HIV. "We don't think AIDS should have civil rights," Pratt told the Los Angeles Times. "The law is a dangerous and outrageous precedent for other wacko legislators to follow. [Those who support it should be] held accountable for voting to support homosexual privileges."

The following year, Pratt called for the quarantine of people suffering from AIDS. "Our judges coddle criminals instead of caring for the victims of crime," he wrote in a Family Foundation fundraising letter. "They've chased God out of our schools, defended abortions…and now they are trying to infect us and kill us with strange and horrible diseases."

The bloodshed and the armed standoff [at Ruby Ridge] that followed catalyzed groups across the far right into action. This activity would soon produce a national militia movement for which Ruby Ridge functioned as a modern-day Alamo. The most important event in this development was a three-day meeting convened in October 1992 by Christian Identity leader Pete Peters. Christian Identity maintains that Aryans are the true Jews, that blacks are a pre-Adamic subhuman species, and that a race war is coming, after which whites will establish a "Christian government." These were the baseline ideas uniting the 150 far-right leaders who answered Peters' call to action at a YMCA hall in Estes Park, Colorado. Among those present was Larry Pratt. According to media reports, Pratt railed against the 14th Amendment and delivered one of his favorite lines: "The Second Amendment ain't about duck hunting."

According to Leonard Zeskind's report from the conference, published in a November 1995 Rolling Stone story, Pratt's fellow speakers consisted mostly of extremists with little mainstream profile or Washington connections, people like Aryan Nations leader Richard Butler and Texas Klansman Louis Beam. Pratt represented a link between these worlds and the rightward edge of the conservative establishment. Pratt's presence, wrote Zeskind, "signaled the transformation of the gun lobby. Organizations like GOA or even the National Rifle Association, which were devoted to the single issue of firearms, would become the leading edge of a far right, multi-issue assault on government institutions and democratic rights. The gun lobby would be at the center of a web of right-wing warriors."

In militia circles, the [Waco] siege confirmed the worst suspicions about the federal government. The links between the militia scene and the gun groups had deepened to the point where NRA fundraising letters echoed the language of extremist publications on the radical right. In one 1995 letter, NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre described ATF officers as "jack-booted thugs" in "Nazi bucket helmets." But the NRA stopped short of supporting the Christian Identity lawyer Kirk Lyons, who was representing multiple victims of Waco. Pratt and the GOA had no such compunction and donated tens of thousands of dollars to Lyons's white supremacist organization CAUSE (short for the Aryan bastions of Canada, Australia, the United States, South Africa and Europe), "Not $50,000 — but a lot of money for us," Pratt told Rolling Stone in 1995.

For many, the gun scene's rhetoric of an "evil" and "fascist" government was immediately rendered in more sinister shades when Timothy McVeigh detonated a truck bomb under Oklahoma City's Alfred P. Murrah federal building on April 19, 1995, the second anniversary of the Waco siege. Former president George W. Bush spoke for many when he cancelled his NRA membership in the bombing's wake, citing LaPierre's incendiary rhetoric.

On the afternoon of the City bombing, Pratt was in Washington, D.C., demonstrating in front of FBI headquarters for its role in the Waco tragedy. Three days later, Pratt spoke before a gathering of 600 Christian Identity adherents and assorted radicals convened by Pete Peters at the Lodge of the Ozarks in Branson, Missouri. Pratt addressed the "Biblical Mandate to Arm" and seemed to justify McVeigh's act of terror, at the time the bloodiest in American history. According to an account by Michael Reynolds in Playboy, Pratt told the gathered, "The government behaves as a beast. It did in Waco, and we have somebody, whoever it might have been, whatever group it might have been, assuming they can't rely on the Lord to take vengeance."

Larry Klayman Says Clevelanders Are Too Fat To Host The GOP Convention

Right-wing legal activist Larry Klayman is not happy that the Republican National Committee selected Cleveland to host the party’s 2016 nominating convention, writing this weekend in WorldNetDaily that Cleveland is a poor, fly-ridden city filled with “losers” and “liberal fat people.”

First, why the Republicans would choose a city whose precincts voted well over 90 percent for Barack Hussein Obama in the last two presidential elections, and which is perhaps the most leftist major city in the United States, is absurd. The chance of Republicans picking up votes in Cleveland is null and void. If indeed winning the key electoral state of Ohio was the objective, then the cities of Cincinnati or Columbus would have been a better alternative.

Second, Cleveland is woefully short of top-notch hotels and restaurants and is dangerous. In this regard, downtown Cleveland, where the convention will be held, has at most three decent eateries and no first-rate hotels in safe areas to speak of. Having lived in the Warehouse District, which is the most “fashionable area” of downtown, the number of street people and beggars approximates the number of white or blue collar workers who frequent and live in the area. The district is not only dangerous, it is depressed beyond imagination, so much so that when I considered buying a condominium there, since it was close to the law firm where I had become a partner, the advantage was only that real estate taxes would be abated for 10 years as an incentive. Accordingly, the facilities and venue of Cleveland are not suitable for a national political convention and portray a poor image for a party already in difficulty if not permanent decline.

Third, from my experience, the people of Cleveland have an equally poor image of themselves. Not only is it the third-fattest city in the United States, the mood of the populace is depressing. I remember once being on a local political television talk show on Labor Day when my co-participants fought over and downplayed new statistics showing that Cleveland, for the moment, was on the upswing. The people of Cleveland, for whatever reason, relish their role as perceived losers as part of what may be a victim complex.

Fourth, during July and August of each year, which is the summer period when the Republican convention will be held, lake flies descend on the “mistake on the lake.” Gnat-like disgusting creatures swarm the area. I know, having lived just a few blocks from the lake and having had an apartment there that became incrusted with these foul, unhealthy insects.



But for a political party that has lost the last two presidential elections to an incompetent and dishonest “Mullah in Chief,” the future under any scenario does not bode well given its choice for the national convention, unless its new constituency is liberal fat people who have given up on life and enjoy seeing themselves as victims. Perhaps it is appropriate, as the GOP has metaphorically become fat, having fed at the trough of a dis-served American people that have few electoral choices to try to restore our beloved nation to the greatness of our Founding Fathers.

Todd Akin: Politico Is Persecuting Me!

Former Rep. Todd Akin keeps insisting that he was unfairly persecuted for his infamous “legitimate rape” remarks, which helped to cost him the 2012 U.S. Senate race in Missouri. Akin apologized for the remarks when they became a liability to his campaign, but recently published a book rescinding his apology.

Now, in a column today for WorldNetDaily, the far-right website publishing his new book, Akin claims that Politico reporters Anna Palmer and Tarini Parti “censored” his book by leaving out of their review his allegation that Bill Clinton is “a credibly accused rapist.”

Actually, the Politico story on Akin’s new book clearly mentions that Akin accused Clinton of rape, and Politico did not violate any of Akin’s rights by not publishing every single word he wrote in his book.

Do you want to know how the media work? Or, more accurately, don’t work?

When asked to comment about my instantly infamous “legitimate rape” comment in my new book “Firing Back,” I describe what Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney should have said: “A credibly accused rapist is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic convention in two weeks, and you want me to denounce a decent, God-fearing man for his inelegant comments about rape? No, not happening, and if the truth hurts, put some ice on it.”

Although Politico reporters Anna Palmer and Tarini Parti had a copy of my book to work from for their July 10 article, “Todd Akin returns to national stage,” they censored the text to read, “[Bill Clinton] is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic convention in two weeks. …”

In removing the phrase “a credibly accused rapist,” they not only stripped the logic from the quote – what, the reader must wonder, does the “ice” have to do with anything? – but they also denied legitimacy to at least one solid rape accusation against Clinton.

As I explain in the book, rape is a horrible crime. I have zero sympathy for those who commit it. For this reason, had I been in Congress in 1998, I would have voted with my colleagues to impeach President Bill Clinton.

End Times Preacher Seeks Support From Top Republicans

Jonathan Cahn recently started boasting that members of Congress have been reading his End Times book, "The Harbinger," about how God used the September 11th attacks and the 2008 economic crash to punish America for its support of abortion rights and gay marriage.

WorldNetDaily, which has heavily promoted Cahn’s book and a film based on his work, is out with a story today on Republican figures including Speaker John Boehner, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee are cozying up to the messianic rabbi.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s runaway bestseller “The Harbinger” has been gaining the attention of America’s top lawmakers.

At a recent event on Capitol Hill commemorating George Washington’s prayer meeting after his inauguration, Cahn spoke to a hall filled with government officials, members of Congress including Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., justices and other influential citizens.



Speaking about reading “Harbinger,” Gov. Mike Huckabee said, “If you have not read this remarkable book, it’s one of the most soul-stirring, and stunning, spell-binding books I think I have ever, ever, read.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, has also received a copy of “The Harbinger.”



“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”

Paranoia-Rama: Fluoride Endangers Freedom, Is Michelle Obama Transgender And Louie Gohmert Has It All Figured Out

Before Obamacare draws the earth into its Last Days with its sinister, demonic agenda of making sure more people have health coverage, we thought you’d like to hear about the recent right-wing concerns regarding voter fraud, same-sex marriage, fluoride…and Michelle Obama’s gender.

Dave Daubenmire Is Just Asking The Question: Are 'Satan/Obama' And The Jewish-Run Media Putting Us In FEMA Camps?

We all know how much certain conservative commentators, namely Glenn Beck, try to get away with making crazy and conspiratorial statements by insisting that they are just asking the question.

Yesterday far-right pundit Dave Daubenmire wrote an entire column devoted to just asking the question regarding his many concerns about the Lucifer-worshipping Democrats and “Satan/Alinsky/Obama,” including his thoughts on Jews running the media, chemtrails, the Illuminati, Common Core, voter fraud and FEMA camps.

I often hear from “loyal Democrats” who resent it when I say that those who vote for the Democrats are supporters of the haters of God. The playbook their current leadership uses gives honor to Lucifer. Scripture tells us that no one can serve two masters. You can't follow Jesus and vote for those who honor Lucifer.

It would be wise for you to take the time to read Alinsky's top 12 rules listed here.

Although we need to be equally alert to all of the techniques of Satan/Alinsky/Obama and how they employ their tactics, rule number five is the one I would like to focus on today.

“Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It's infuriating. It's irrational. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude, and mean, huh?They want to create anger and fear.”



So today I would like to lob a few thoughts your way and ask if it would make a difference in your approach to figuring out why things are so messed up, if you considered one simple question.

What if it was true? Here goes.

WHAT IF the President really did provide a fake birth certificate? What if He received aid as a foreign student? What if the President really was on the side of the Muslims?

WHAT IF the shredding of our borders was part of a bigger plan to destroy America? What if the Illuminati were real? What if a small group of bankers were pulling all of the strings?

WHAT IF the goal of the Departmental of Education was to make Americans dumber? What if they knew Common Core was designed to subvert America?

WHAT IF there really was something harmful in the “chemtrails” that are being sprayed on us?



WHAT IF the Kazar and Ashkenazi Jews really did control the media and the financial system? What if most modern Jews had no bloodline connection to Jesus?



WHAT IF “climate change” was a scientific fraud designed to control the lives of Americans? What if “the authorities” have no legal, rightful authority?

WHAT IF the FEMA camps were real and operational? Why? Who are they for?

WHAT IF your pastor was afraid to speak the Truth for fear of government retribution? What if his theology was wrong? What if YOURS was?

WHAT IF the voting machines were hacked? What if your vote was changed? What if illegal and dead people voted? What if the candidates were selected and not elected?

WHAT IF the return of the Nephilim was actually occurring? What if UFO's were actually invaders from a demonic realm?

Tom Tancredo: Border Crisis 'Absolutely Part Of' Obama's Plan To 'Transform America'

Former Colorado Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo, said Wednesday that the crisis of Central American refugees at the southern border is “all part of a plan” by President Obama to “fundamentally transform America.”

Speaking with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg, Tancredo said that the president should simply ignore the Bush-era child-trafficking law that is complicating attempts to deal with child refugees.

But, citing a quote from the president that is frequently distorted and taken out of context by the Right, Tancredo said that Obama will keep all of the immigrants in the country as part of his plan to “fundamentally transform America.”

“This is all part of a plan,” he said. “And you know how this sounds, I know how people immediately go, ‘Oh, there’s a conspiracy theorist out there.’ Now, look. It’s not a conspiracy if he tells the world what he wants. If Obama says on numerous occasions, ‘I intend to fundamentally transform’ and then he begins doing it, it’s not a conspiracy. This is absolutely part of that."

Alan Keyes Says Impeaching Obama Would Be A 'Prayer' For God To Bless America Once Again

Long before Sarah Palin started calling for President Obama’s impeachment, conservative activist Alan Keyes had been consistently urging Republicans jump on the impeachment wagon, even suggesting that Jesus Christ favors impeaching the president.

According to Keyes, impeaching Obama would be the first step toward restoring God’s blessing on America by showing that we are repenting for the country’s sin of electing Obama, who defeated Keyes in the 2004 Illinois U.S. Senate race.

“Do this as a prayer to the Creator God whose authority over justice those principles acknowledge,” he writes today in WorldNetDaily. “Do this so that once again our nation may deserve to enjoy the blessings of that God-endowed liberty which has been, and by our faithfulness may yet continue to be, our common hope; our common life; our common good.”

THE COMMENT:

Hello, Dr. Keyes. Even if the House were to impeach … you’d never get the Senate to convict. … What’s the point when the corruption extends into both parties and into both houses? Perhaps the following should be our main goal; we as a people MUST return to a loving relationship with God … we as a people MUST return to virtue. Is this not far more important than “the impeachment field – ripe for the harvest”?

MY REPLY:

In everything I write and everything I do my aim is to encourage people of faith to act like it when it comes to their vocation as citizens. This is why I have constantly emphasized that our first order of business as American citizens is to remember and apply the principles on which our nation is founded, starting with the self-evident truth that we “are created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights.”

However, achieving this goal cannot be a matter of lip-service to faith. From the first, Christ preached repentance. If we talk about the need to return to God and yet refuse to turn to Him, even in the hour of our greatest need, we are not repentant. Indeed, we act like an obese person who talks about losing weight but who will not turn away from overeating and idleness and back to the standard of healthy living in order to do so.

Repentance is a work of God’s grace, by which His Spirit renews within us the activity of life, much as it did when it mingled with the man of dust in order that he should become a living soul. By this renewal of life God calls us to return to Him, through the way of truth and life that He has prepared and offered us for our salvation. We signify our acceptance of His offer when we walk in this way, not when we talk about the need to do so and then let the deceitful cavils of fear paralyze our goodwill.



I urge you to visit the Pledge to Impeach website. I urge you conscientiously to ponder the cogent facts and reasoning you will find there. I urge you to commit yourself to the Pledge to impeach mobilization effort. I urge you thereafter to encourage all the like-minded people you know and can influence to do the same.

Do this as an act of good faith, predicated upon the principles of America’s independence as a nation. Do this as a prayer to the Creator God whose authority over justice those principles acknowledge. Do this so that once again our nation may deserve to enjoy the blessings of that God-endowed liberty which has been, and by our faithfulness may yet continue to be, our common hope; our common life; our common good.

Dinesh D'Souza Explains How Costco, Google And The New York Times Are Conspiring Against Him

Right-wing activist and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza is convinced that Costco, Google and the New York Times are working together to suppress his new book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her” and its companion movie of the same name, which liberals hate because they hate America .

D’Souza sat down with One American News Network’s Rick Amato on Wednesday to explain how liberal executives at the three companies are working to suppress his book: Costco by pulling his book from its shelves citing low ratings on the New York Times bestseller list, the New York Times by somehow doctoring its bestseller list to keep him off it, and Google for sending people who search for his movie “America” to listings for his previous movie “2016: Obama’s America” (obviously a liberal plot).

But fear not, America. As Jim Newell noted, “the longer [D’Souza] suffers, the more selectively he’s prosecuted, the more his art is censored, the stronger he becomes!”

D’Souza told Amato that Costco restored his book not because of rising sales — which may have something to do with all of the manufactured controversy he successfully ginned up in the conservative media — but because of the “real heroes” who left angry notes on the company’s Facebook page and "brought a giant corporation to its knees."

Later in the program, D'Souza told viewers that they could continue to be heroes and "stick it to the left"...by buying tickets to his movie.
