Dolores Huerta, PFAW Respond to SCOTUS Decision to Hear DACA+, DAPA

In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to review the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), People For the American Way board member and civil rights legend Dolores Huerta stated:

“The Supreme Court made the right decision today to give millions of immigrant children and families, who are suffering greatly because of the threat of deportation, their day in court. By following the law and upholding DACA+ and DAPA, the Court can protect millions of immigrant children and parents from the threat of deportation. These actions fall well within President Obama’s Constitutional powers, and the Republican governors promoting this lawsuit are trying to use the courts to push a political agenda. The United States should not be in the business of separating families or deporting parents from their children. That’s shameful, and I hope the Supreme Court will do the right thing by upholding DACA+ and DAPA.”

People For the American Way President Michael B. Keegan added:

“This case is a powerful reminder of the importance of the Supreme Court—and that the future of the Court is at stake in 2016. In this case, the Justices have a choice between following the Constitution or pushing an extreme ideological agenda. Over the last ten years, we’ve seen too many cases in which they’ve put politics above the law. Upholding the president’s actions should be an easy call, but thanks to the far-right bloc on this court this program may well come down to the views of a single justice. When voters go to the polls in 2016, they should remember that they’re not just selecting a president to serve for four years; they’re choosing the next justice who could shape the court for a generation. The future of immigrant families and so many others could be determined by whether Americans choose to pull the Court back from the extremism of the last decade or allow the GOP and its right-wing allies to capture the Court for the foreseeable future.”

Falwell Jr.: Donald Trump Like Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King Jr. And Jerry Falwell

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, asked Donald Trump to speak at the school on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day yesterday “so that Mr. Trump would have the opportunity to recognize and honor Dr. King on MLK day.”

This didn’t seem to register with Trump, who didn’t spend any time discussing the late civil rights leader, outside of saying he would “dedicate” the large crowd to King.

But Falwell Jr. spent plenty of time lavishing praise on Trump, claiming that the business mogul has demonstrated his Christian “fruit” by creating jobs and getting involved in philanthropic work, gushing that “Donald Trump lives a life of loving and helping others, as Jesus taught in the Great Commandment.”

He also compared the GOP presidential frontrunner to Jesus Christ, King and his father, the late televangelist Jerry Falwell, explaining that none of them were “politically incorrect.”

Among the elder Falwell’s “politically incorrect” statements include his support for South Africa’s apartheid government and racial segregation in the U.S., specifically denouncing King in his sermons.

Rand Paul: 'Nobody's Got A Damn Car In Afghanistan'

Yesterday, Rand Paul appeared on “The Simon Conway Show” to rail against left-wing environmentalism that he says “has infected the Pentagon” and driven up military expenditures.

One result of this “green craziness,” he said, was the construction of a natural gas fueling station in Afghanistan, even though, according to the Kentucky senator, “nobody’s got a damn car in Afghanistan.”

However, the money in question actually went towards a larger effort “to bring Afghanistan’s giant Shebergan gas field back into production,” and people in Afghanistan do in fact drive and own cars.

Paul then pivoted to attack his fellow presidential hopefuls Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz for their stances on military spending, which he said would “bankrupt the country.”

Cruz Touts Endorsements From Anti-Feminist Eagle Forum

Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign announced yet another set of endorsements from Religious Right leaders yesterday, this time from a number of activists working with the anti-feminist group Eagle Forum.

The endorsers advertised by Cruz’s campaign notably do not include Eagle Forum’s founder, Phyllis Schlafly, who has not explicitly endorsed any candidate but has called Donald Trump the “last hope for America.”

But included in the list of Cruz endorsers are Schlafly’s niece and heir apparent, Anne Cori, as well as 19 other Eagle Forum leaders from 11 states.

Schlafly founded Eagle Forum in 1972 as part of her effort to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment. Since then, she has expanded the organization’s focus to include not just fighting “radical feminists” and their “feminist goals of stereotyping men as a constant danger to women,” but also to opposing gay rights, immigration, U.S. involvement with the United Nations, and national curriculum standards.

The best-known Eagle Forum activist on the latest list of Cruz endorsers is Cathie Adams, a former chairwoman of the Texas GOP and longtime leader of the state’s Eagle Forum chapter, who has a record of extremism that will make her fit right in with her fellow Cruz endorsers.

Adams led a group of Texas Republicans in inserting language supporting “ex-gay” therapy into the state party’s platform in 2014, later saying that homosexuality “is NOT NORMAL behavior” and that the state must support “those individuals who choose to seek a way out of sexual perversion.” She defended the platform by insisting, “When a culture descends to a point where homosexuality is openly accepted as a normal behavior, then a society is well on its way to demise.”

In the lead-up to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, she said that the ruling “could be the end of America” and suggested that people were already fleeing states with marriage equality for states like Texas that banned gay marriage.

“Texas’ laws should be aligned with nature and nature’s God, thus protecting children from the unnatural and unhealthy lifestyles of homosexuality and bisexuality,” she wrote to members of Texas Eagle Forum in 2003. When pro-choice protesters filled the Texas capitol in 2013, she called them “feminazis” and “stinky stalking feminists.”

Adams share’s Eagle Forum’s nativist priorities, defending abstinence-only education by blaming teen pregnancy rates on Mexican immigrants with inferior “morals,” opposing the Children’s Health Insurance Program because it might benefit “illegal aliens,” and warning that the Gang of Eight immigration reform bill would lead to the biblical Mark of the Beast through biometric scanning and bring about the End Times. She once argued that anti-tax activist Grover Norquist was secretly a Muslim and working for the Muslim Brotherhood, as evidenced by the fact that “he has a beard.”

Adams has also been an enthusiastic promoter of conspiracy theories about president Obama, doing her part to promote the Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theory and the fear that Obama might stay in office past his second term, and suggesting that Obama’s Christian faith is not real.

Kim Davis' Lawyer Compares Her To Martin Luther King Jr.

Mathew Staver, the anti-gay activist who represented Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in her failed attempt to prevent her office from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, marked Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by emailing supporters of his organization, Liberty Counsel, a fundraising email that included an excerpt from King’s “Letter from the Birmingham Jail.”

Naturally, Staver, who has previously likened Davis to King and to Jewish victims of the Holocaust, ended his letter by directly comparing Davis to the civil rights leader:

P.S. Dr. King was a highly principled man and firmly held to his convictions until his untimely death.

Today, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis stands as an example to all of us as a person of conviction who was jailed for her principled resistance to an unjust law. Yet, the Lord has restored her in ways she couldn't have imagined!

While no one wants conflict, we have no choice but to resist an unjust law, particularly one that will force us to participate in acts that directly conflict with the Natural and Revealed Law.

Staver isn’t alone in comparing Davis to King.

Back in September, Rick Santorum said that Davis was following in King’s footsteps:

Trump Campaign Picks Radical Anti-Gay End Times Pastor For Rally Invocation

While most people remember Donald Trump’s Wednesday rally in Pensacola, Florida, for a hypnotic performance by the “Freedom Kids” dance troupe, one aspect that should not be overlooked was the invocation delivered by Carl Gallups, an extremist End Times pastor who believes the U.S. is on the verge of annihilation.

While the invocation itself was uncontroversial, the choice of Gallups is a curious one, particularly since Trump has largely avoided social issues in his campaign.

Gallups, like Trump, is a birther who loves Vladimir Putin, and also shares his disdain for Common Core, although Gallups thinks that Common Core will be used to teach pre-schoolers “the mechanics of homosexual sex.”

Gallups has also claimed that the U.S. “is inviting end of days judgment upon itself” because it “celebrates, promotes and legalizes homosexual marriage.” He believes that such judgment “has already begun” because of America’s stances on marriage equality and abortion rights, linking the two issues to turmoil in the stock market.

Gay marriage, Gallups claims, will allow gay people to “enslave” Christians and “may prove to be the final death knell of divine judgment upon our once great nation,” possibly leading to the “total destruction” of society.

Gallups thinks that schools that teach about gay people in history should also teach “the history of the major civilizations that ultimately met their demise concurrent with the rise of rampant sexual promiscuity and deviancy within those cultures, especially embracing and accepting homosexuality.” He calls homosexuality “one of the most dangerous sexual lifestyles on the planet.”

He believes that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision is transforming America into Nazi Germany and North Korea and may lead to a ban on religion.

But then again, Trump himself has declared that America is a “hellhole” that is “going down fast” — but of course, for different reasons.

'God's On Our Side': Alex Jones Hails Discredited Right Wing Activist James O'Keefe

James O’Keefe, the right-wing activist best known for his discredited attacks against the community service group ACORN, his failed attempt to break into then-Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office and recent laughable effort to manufacture a Hillary Clinton campaign finance scandal, is now directing his attacks at companies involved with Common Core, an academic standards effort with supporters and critics on both sides of the aisle.

Naturally, O’Keefe found a receptive audience in Alex Jones, speaking with the InfoWars broadcaster yesterday about his latest set of “sting” videos.

“We’re in a war,” Jones said, claiming that “the real battle for the republic” is in the homeland because “America is being taken down.”

“God’s on our side,” he told O’Keefe. “There is Providence. George Washington talked about it. But we have to get on the field. But when we get on the field, everything we do turns to gold.” He continued to pour out praise of O’Keefe, praising the activist for trying to stop liberals from taking over the U.S. and turning it into a Third World nation.

O’Keefe, who once likened his group’s activists to SEAL Team Six, said that while he wasn’t comparing himself to military service members, “I do think that people need to risk their lives domestically” to save America. He then insisted that he has been detained several times by the Department of Homeland Security and has gone “through hell doing this work.”

WND Pundit: Trump Can Rally A 'White Army' And The 'White Lives Matter Movement'

Yesterday, WorldNetDaily columnist Ilana Mercer praised Donald Trump for giving voice to members of the “invisible, white army” who are tired of being oppressed by “federal aggression” and immigrants who “have the run of your schools, hospitals, libraries, parks and workplace.”

“Indeed, we members of the informal White Lives Matter movement notice that poor whites in America are very badly off,” she wrote, adding that “this large, mostly white cohort is waiting on the ropes for … Donald Trump.”

WorldNetDaily, of course, is the same far-right, birther outlet that named Trump its “Man of the Year” in 2015. Trump will return the favor by agreeing to speak at an event in March honoring WorldNetDaily’s founder and birther movement leader Joseph Farah.

Omitted at last year’s Fox Business presidential debate Nov. 10 were two loudly whispered secrets. The one was Marco Rubio’s expensing the Republican Party for personal spending. The other: Terrifying data that a large segment of white America was … dying.



Most of us have come across emaciated, gaunt, poor white men and women in our communities; middle-aged, often younger whites standing on the curb, begging for change. Indeed, we members of the informal White Lives Matter movement notice that poor whites in America are very badly off.

But a political whiteout prohibits the candid discussion of their plight. Unless they’re being dubbed throw-away racists, bigots, or has-beens who can’t let go of white privilege – white, working-class America is invisible. It has been so for decades.



If you’re working-class and white, you’re invisible. You have been for decades. You used to be the backbone of the economy. No more. You’re still the backbone of the U.S. military, more likely to die in the service of The State in far-flung countries.

Your love of country is sanctioned provided it is confined to dying in the wars launched by Rome-on-the-Potomac. You may find belonging only by risking your life abroad in the service of strangers, or opening your home to them, stateside. If you survive the combat-to-coffin career path, your love of community will need to encompass a million immigrants, each and every year, who’ll have the run of your schools, hospitals, libraries, parks and workplace. Destined to fight against subsistence farmers in foreign lands, you find yourself harassed on your homesteaded land, at home, never free from federal aggression.

As a share of America’s adult population, Donald Trump’s invisible, white army likely forms less than 48 percent. To them could be added other whites who favor borders and hanker after closely-knit communities and such Burkean peculiarities. I would imagine ranchers Hammond and Bundy are eager to hear from the one candidate who has not called them terrorists.

This large, mostly white cohort is waiting on the ropes for … Donald Trump.

Kim Davis: SOTU Ignored The Christians Being 'Mashed Down, Literally' By Obama

Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, a hero of the Religious Right because of her attempt to prevent her county office from issuing marriage licenses following the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, got a spot at the State of the Union address on Tuesday, thanks to the Family Research Council and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

Davis was initially unresponsive about her reaction to President Obama’s address, telling a reporter simply that “it was a speech,” but went into a little more detail in an interview with EWTN’s Jason Calvi after the event.

Davis did have some words of praise for the president, telling Calvi, “I did agree with one remark that he made about how we have to stand strong, help those that are less fortunate, and I think that is the basis of the Christian faith is the brotherly love, you know?”

But she was less impressed with Obama’s reference to marriage equality. “He had made the statement that everybody was free to marry who they love, and, of course, that’s the stand that I stood again,” she said. “And it’s not, for me, it never was a gay or a lesbian issue. It’s about standing up for the word of the God and as God had defined marriage from the very beginning as between one man and one woman, and that’s what I stood for.”

When Calvi asked Davis about the president’s caution against anti-Muslim bigotry and prejudice, Davis responded that he should have instead talked about Christians like her who “are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally” by his policies.

“One of the things that he focused on was that we should not discriminate against Muslims or persecute them, but he never once said anything about the people of the Christian faith who are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally, with his agenda,” she said.

BarbWire Pundit: Obama Is Enslaving People, Unlike The Founding Fathers

Writing this week in BarbWire, Sher Zieve warns that the passage of the omnibus spending bill last month proves that Republicans in Congress have been unwilling to “remove the cancer” destroying the U.S., partly due to the fact that people are afraid “of being called a ‘racist’ if they oppose the country’s enslavement of its citizens with replacement of illegal ones and totalitarian leftist policies.”

Zieve, who has previously written about Obama’s dictatorial, anti-white, Islamic and satanic ambitions, urges readers to try and “pull our country out of the Luciferian Left morass” and to “rededicate this country to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and … return to the principles upon which this country was founded. For those who graduated high school after the 1960s, those principles do not and never did include slavery or suppression. Remember that the ‘new’ Obama-Principles do.”

With ongoing acts of patent lunacy—or the darker reason…collaboration—the Republican-controlled US Congress refuses to remove the cancer eating away at Washington D.C. just as the Democrats have done for decades. Instead, the aforementioned Congress seems to prefer the ultimate demise-for-lack-of-proper-care that will soon be the cause of death. One of the primary reasons used as an excuse is the now cliché false fear of being called a “racist” if they oppose the country’s enslavement of its citizens with replacement of illegal ones and totalitarian leftist policies.

Note…at some point almost all politicians become leftists in order to enrich themselves and they begin to view their constituencies as “the great unwashed masses” who are beneath them. They, then, begin to use any inane excuse to draw curious eyes away from what they’re really doing. And, at some point it no longer matters on which side they pretend to be, because it’s the side that solely enriches them.

After passing the “Omnibus” bill—which already includes all sorts of snakes and vermin including, but not limited to, fully funding Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare and the resettlement of Syrians “refugees” and other thousands of assorted Muslims into our country—our replacements—Speaker of the House and Boehner clone Paul Ryan patted himself on the back for passing another bill in the House which eliminates ObamaCare and defunds Planned Parenthood. Do you remember when Paul Ryan said that he’d wait to pass the omnibus bill until after a new POTUS is elected…then passed it in the middle of the night ala Harry Reid and the rest of the Marxist Dems? I watched the video (see second Source below) and even Ryan seems to have difficulty not laughing (watch his facial expressions) when he states more of his own rather apparent lies.



Should American citizens become involved in government, organizations such as Planned Parenthood abortuaries and a Bureau of Land Management gone rogue (and for all intents and purposes is now a mercenary institution reporting to the highest bidder) would not be allowed to exist. These—and others oppressive to the people that are now prevalent—would have been stopped in their tracks before their power became so great.

By now, most of us should be—and I believe are—fully awake to the clear and present dangers which face our country and us. More and more citizens are becoming active. Keep it up, grow you numbers and we might actually be able—with courage and lots of work—be able to pull our country out of the Luciferian Left morass. I don’t, however, believe we can do it with the vast majority of those currently in power. Nothing less than a sea change is required.



Another step—and I believe the most important if America USA is to survive in any form at all—is to rededicate this country to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to return to the principles upon which this country was founded. For those who graduated high school after the 1960s, those principles do not and never did include slavery or suppression. Remember that the “new” Obama-Principles do.

RNC's Dave Agema: 'Obama Uses Taqiyya' And Is A 'Socialist Dictator'

Former GOP state lawmaker Dave Agema represents Michigan as a national committeeman at the Republican National Committee, where he has used his post as a platform for voicing anti-gay, anti-Muslim and racist statements, prompting one Republican consultant to call him “the RNC’s David Duke.”

This week, Agema is attending the RNC winter meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, where introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Obama (it failed).

In a speech to the meeting, the text of which he later posted on his Facebook page, Agema declared that Obama is both a domestic enemy and a “socialist dictator” who, along with Hillary Clinton and Republicans who “have been co-conspirators in tyranny or treason,” must be stopped:

It's the RNC's duty to steer the GOP. We have allowed a socialist dictator in the White House and the RNC has done nothing to stop Obama nor encourage a feckless congress to act.

What this resolution does is encourages someone in congress to do the right thing. I don't buy the garbage that impeaching Obama will motivate the democrat base. This impeachment process will expose in the media-TV, radio, talk shows etc. how egregious the behavior of both Obama and Hillary has been. There comes a point when playing politics must yield to the more important issue of saving our republic from Obama and any future over zealous [sic] presidents.

The RNC is about to answer whether we stand for enforcement of the constitution or not. The RNC is about to set a precedent whether treason and tyranny are allowable and no separation of powers exist.

It will be the GOP that will be lynched for permitting tyranny to occur and not have attempted to stop it. We are seeing the overthrow of our constitutional republic and if the RNC does nothing, then we are part of the problem. If we do nothing, we are establishing a policy within the GOP that treason is NOT an impeachable offense. The yearning for success to beat our opponents is sought after, at all cost, even to the exception of the constitution itself. It won't work. If you think we have a chance to beat Hillary by sitting on our hands and do nothing, you are sadly mistaken.

Carter, Clinton and Obama were elected by the female voters and they are lining up behind Hillary, but they won't when she has been implicated as a co-conspirator of treason and tyranny for her work in the State Department.

...

Objections to such a resolution stem from ignorance of the process or they are attempting to protect a few of our own republicans that have been co-conspirators in tyranny or treason. It only takes 1 Rep to put this in, 20 yes votes in the judiciary of which 23 are republicans and 218 yes votes on the floor of which we have 247 republicans. This public display of their behavior will emasculate both Obama and Hillary for all the world to see.

There are 48 articles of impeachment in this resolution and supporting documents for every one. Obama can do even greater damage in the next year and he most certainly will, as been evidenced in his gun executive orders and spying on congress.

There are two ways to lose a country. One is from outside forces and the other is from within via tyranny. Choose this day what you stand for, our future depends on it. Our voting base is watching and thus far, they don't like what they see.

As a former military officer, fighter pilot and state rep, I took the oath of office to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, I hope by your vote today you do the same. Thank you."

Agema also suggested that Obama is a secret Muslim who “uses Taqiyya,” or an idea embraced among some Shiite Muslims that “a person who faces religious persecution can withhold the identity of their faith in order to avoid bodily harm or death.” Oddly, Agema thinks Obama is also aiding ISIS, which believes all Shiites should be put to death.

Now he talks about keeping us safe as he allows ISIS to enter via the refugee program and he weakens our military. He abuses the military with his useless ROE and our enemies do see our weakness. This guy is living in a bubble and is an excellent liar.

He claims he wants to go after terrorist networks, but doesn't allow our soldiers to utterly destroy them. He calls ISIS, ISIL which doesn't recognize Israel. I think Obama uses Taqiyya.

10,000 airstrikes with many coming back with their bombs and telling the enemy before he went after ISIS's oil trucks. What about Bengahzi [sic] that you allowed to occur whithout helping. Obama thinks he can solve the worlds [sic] problems. He causes them!

I cant [sic] watch anymore of this guys [sic] BS. Too many believe his lies based on a speech that is void of facts. For example, he claims to have stopped Iran from getting NUCs- [sic] he gave them $150 billion to complete their work with NUCs [sic]. I'm done- can't take it anymore!

Outside the meeting venue, Agema spoke with InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs about his claim that Michigan is on the verge of adopting Sharia law, asserting that judges already incorporate Sharia law in their rulings. He also alleged that refugees coming to the U.S. are waging “civilization jihad.”

Ted Cruz Touts Endorsement Of Anti-Gay Extremist Paul Blair

Ted Cruz is already boasting of the endorsements he has received from activists who have linked homosexuality to Ebola, violence, terrorism and train derailments, so it came as no surprise to see the Texas senator’s presidential campaign

Ted Cruz Hates 'New York Values,' Loves New York Money

Sen. Ted Cruz has started attacking Donald Trump, his main rival in Iowa, for having “New York values.” While Cruz hasn’t explained exactly what he means by that, he told Megyn Kelly that “the rest of the country knows exactly what New York values are.”

Of course, faux populism is nothing new from Cruz, who now duck hunts with the “Duck Dynasty” clan but at Harvard Law “refused to study with anyone who hadn’t been an undergrad at Harvard, Princeton, or Yale.” Nor is contempt for New Yorkers, as he voted against aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy but demanded federal aid for people affected by flooding in Texas.

But there is one thing Cruz seems to like about New York: money.

According to the Federal Election Commission, New York is the fourth biggest fundraising state for the Cruz campaign.

In fact, it was at a New York fundraiser for his campaign that Cruz told a pro-gay-marriage donor that he wouldn’t make opposition to marriage equality a top priority of his administration, seeming to contradict what he told Religious Right groups.

Robert Mercer, who lives in a Long Island suburb of New York, is “the main donor behind a network of four ‘super PACs’ supporting Mr. Cruz that reported raising $31 million just a few weeks into his campaign.”

Cruz’s wife works for the New York-based firm Goldman Sachs, the same firm that gave the Cruz family a big (unreported) loan during Ted’s Senate campaign and whose employees and PAC have been generous donors to his campaign.

Cruz’s new line about “New York values” is just more honest, unifying rhetoric from the candidate who repeatedly accuses President Obama of trying “to divide us, to try to tear us apart” rather than “looking for ways to bring us together, to unify us.”

Mike Huckabee: Hillary Clinton May Use Massive Voter Fraud To Win

Mike Huckabee, who in his quest for the GOP presidential nomination has been touting his record of having “consistently fought the Clinton machine” in Arkansas and “lived to tell about it,” spoke with Breitbart News yesterday about how Bill and Hillary Clinton are total liars and how only he has the expertise to defeat them.

After referencing the Monica Lewinski scandal and false and unproven claims about Hillary Clinton’s response to the Benghazi attack, Huckabee floated the prospect of Clinton using voter fraud in order to win the presidential election.

“I always said in Arkansas that I had to get more votes than normal because I had to overcome the cemetery votes,” he said. “One of the reasons I’m a committed Christian is because I believe in the resurrection. I saw it every Election Day, people coming out of the grave to go vote, and if you don’t think voter fraud and every trick and the book will be used, then you have never played in that arena before.”

'I'd Really Like To See You As President': Alex Jones Hails Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., appeared on Alex Jones’ radio program today, where he tried to win the bizarre conspiracy theorist back from his Republican presidential rival Donald Trump, who lavished praise on Jones last month. 

Paul, who has appeared on Jones’ show several times before, urged InfoWars viewers to demand that the Republican National Committee allow him on the main stage during Thursday’s Fox Business Network debate, which he is currently boycotting because he was placed in the undercard debate.

Jones said that Paul could defeat Trump, who he said is riding a wave of anti-government resentment.

“How do we get you elected president?” he asked. “I know there’s a lot of time left and folks thought Trump would fade but I think really getting aggressive is the way to go. I don’t claim to be the big political guru here, sir, but I’d really like to see you as president.”

Paul insisted that Trump isn’t a true conservative, citing his differences with Trump on the issue of eminent domain.

“I know you’re the statesman that would make the perfect president,” Jones told Paul, wondering “how we could catapult you back to the lead.”

Media Matters, which first highlighted Paul’s appearance today on Jones’ program, pointed out that “Paul attempted to downplay his alliance with Jones,” whom he once thanked “for being a vital part of his 2010 Senate campaign.”

Jones said on the air last year that he hoped Paul would win the GOP nomination for president and that he was confident that Paul would “probably end up being president if we turn this country around” and was only trying to moderate his image because he is “playing politics.”

Oath Keepers Head: Obama Wants 'Dead Cops' In Oregon Standoff

Oath Keepers head Stewart Rhodes has come out against the takeover of a federal building in Oregon not because he disagrees with the cause of the militia groups that are occupying the building, but because the people who they claim to be helping — ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond — don’t want them there and also because he thinks that the groups have put themselves at a strategic disadvantage in any potential clash with the government.

Rhodes expounded on his views in an interview with “The Common Sense Show,” a “Patriot” movement program, last week, saying that the Oregon standoff risked giving the federal government “what they would consider the eye candy of dead cops killed by gun owners,” which would then give them cover to take away everyone’s guns.

Rhodes and the show’s hosts, Dave Hodges and James White, spent quite a bit of time discussing the logistics of a civil war if the military and police officers were to turn on the federal government in retaliation for an overreach on guns. (Rhodes’ group is made up primarily of ex-military and law enforcement personnel.)

White asked Rhodes what percentage of the military he thought would turn on the government “when the call comes out from Obama, for example, to confiscate guns and maybe fire on American people.” Rhodes responded that the government is imposing gun restrictions in a more incremental manner now but that if the government’s move was “taking all guns,” then a great number of the military would turn against them and “our greatest danger at that point would be a military coup.”

Hodges had a follow-up question: “If Obama does make a full-out move and if a military coup is in the cards, do you think that Obama will resort to the use of UN troops, specifically the Russians and the Chinese, to subjugate Americans and put down any rebellion?”

Rhodes responded that Obama’s use of foreign troops to quash a rebellion would be “the greatest gift” he could give the “resistance” because then “it would just piss off every other American.”

This led White to ask if the government was inflating statistics on the number of police officers who are shot on duty in an attempt to “incite incidences between the police and the citizens” because the “powers that be” want to “throw them out in the front lines and have them chewed up first in their big plan.”

“Of course, that’s what they want,” Rhodes responded. “They would love to have what they would consider the eye candy of dead cops killed by gun owners. That would give them the great PR coup of being able to point to that and say, ‘See, this is why we have to have more gun control.’”

“This is what I’m worried about, why I was upset about what was happening in Oregon,” he explained, “is that they’re potentially going to give them that gift. You might wind up with not just dead patriots out there but also dead highway patrolmen and sheriff’s deputies and federal agents. And so they’ll use that, you can bet, of course they will.”

Ted Cruz Touts Endorsement Of Extremist Phil Robertson Of 'Duck Dynasty'

Ted Cruz is out with a new ad today featuring reality TV star Phil Robertson, including footage of the two hunting together.

The “Duck Dynasty” patriarch turned into a conservative hero when he made a series of racist and anti-gay statements in an interview with GQ magazine, causing A&E to briefly suspend him from his family’s show on the network.

Robertson told GQ that black people were better off under Jim Crow — “singing and happy,” “pre-entitlement, pre-welfare” — than they are today. He also likened gay people to people who have sex with animals, saying that gay people’s minds must be warped by sin, because how else would they not be attracted to vaginas.

This controversy helped launch Robertson’s career in the conservative speaking circuit, where he went on to attack transgender and gay people; falsely claim that “110 million Americans now have a sexually transmitted illness,” which he blamed on hippies; blame Nazism on the lack of Christianity in Germany; and lay out his plans to fight ISIS: “Either convert them or kill them.”

In one speech, Robertson fantasized about an atheist family being brutally raped, dismembered and murdered in order to prove a point about how Americans need to follow God’s laws.

Robertson also believes that liberals in the U.S. are pawns of Satan who are worse than the Nazis because “they champion perversion, they champion murder, aborting their children and they are champions of lies.”

And now he is just one of the many far-right extremists whose endorsement has been welcomed by Cruz’s presidential campaign.

Sandy Rios: Pray That Obama Won't Seize Total Power

Add Sandy Rios of the American Family Association to the growing list of conservatives who believe President Obama may try to remain in office after his second term ends.

A listener called into Rios’ American Family Radio program this morning to predict that “Obama is not going to step down” from office, much like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, because “he’s going to enact martial law” and possibly stoke a “civil war.”

Rios, naturally, agreed with the listener’s assessment, suggesting that Obama may follow Chávez in seizing complete control over the government through “democratic means.”

“Your warning is very justified,” she said. “I had a South American leader who was teaching me these things who said, ‘This is what we see Obama doing from a distance, the very same thing, the method that’s being taught by — ,’ I don’t know exactly who wrote it down but Fidel Castro was in the center of all of it, this new way of taking over governments. So the warning that you give is very justified.”

She ended by agreeing that we should all pray for Obama not to grab total power.
