E.W. Jackson: Black Lives Matter Is 'Demonic'

On a conference call he organized with conservative activists last month, Virginia Religious Right activist and GOP politician E.W. Jackson lashed out at the “demonic Black Lives Matter movement” and claimed that President Obama wants to accept Syrian refugees because he’s intent on “defending Islam” rather than “defending America.”

Jackson made the comments immediately before Sen. Ted Cruz joined the call. As we reported yesterday, Cruz pledged activists on the call, including Americans for Truth about Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera, that he would reverse LGBT rights victories if elected president.

Jackson, once a staunch opponent of desegregation efforts in Boston, urged conservative activists to join one of his campaigns to “address the problem in America’s cities right now” because urban issues “threaten to boil over into real unrest in our country as a result of this demonic Black Lives Matter movement and the rhetoric of this president and before him Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton and all of these folks who are so dedicated to stirring up racial strife.”

Jackson also claimed that many Syrian refugees settled in the U.S. will inevitably commit terrorist attacks, “and yet this president is hell-bent — and I’m using that word advisably but I think properly, because it really is hellish — hell-bent on bringing these people into our country even though he knows that there is no way to eliminate the risk that it poses to the American people and our national security.”

Jackson then went on to cite a fake Obama quote that originated in a chain email to attack the president: “He said in a book one time that if the winds ever blew against Islam, he would always stand with Islam. And he told the truth because he definitely stands with Islam and defends Islam at all costs. But he ought to be defending America, not defending Islam, but defending America.”

Later in the call, Jackson said that “this whole homosexual, same-sex, transgender stuff” amounts to “spitting in the face of Almighty God.”

Trump's Anti-Muslim Bigotry Isn't Hurting Him. It's Helping.

Every time Donald Trump makes a blatantly false or derogatory statement, pundits wonder if this will finally topple Trump from his lead in the polls among Republican voters.

Most recently, Trump has dishonestly claimed that “thousands and thousands” of Muslim-Americans in Jersey City celebrated the 9/11 attacks, called for closing mosques and floated the idea of a government database to monitor all Muslims.

None of these statements, however, has had any impact on Trump’s poll numbers in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, where his lead has barely changed in the last month and a half.

In fact, as Public Policy Polling found in a survey released today, Trump’s supporters are big fans of his anti-Muslim rants.

A majority of respondents who said they backed Trump agreed that “thousands of Arabs in New Jersey celebrated the attacks of 9/11,” said they were “in favor of a national database of Muslims” and backed “a ban specifically on assault weapons for Muslims,” even though a majority opposed a universal assault weapons ban.

And we wonder why Trump is still ahead in the polls….

As for Trump he was at 28% in mid-October and he's at 27% now, so his standing couldn't be much more steady. His favorability rating with Republicans has actually improved a tick, from 48/42 the last poll to now 50/39. The key to Trump's sustained success is that his supporters basically buy into everything he says. There's an almost cult like aspect to it, with Trump fans following the leader.

Examples:

-58% of Trump voters think thousands of Arabs in New Jersey celebrated the attacks of 9/11 to only 12% who don't think that happened. This is despite only 30% of Republican voters overall believing that to 39% who don't.

-53% of Trump supporters are in favor of a national database of Muslims, to only 22% opposed to that concept. This is despite only 29% of Republicans overall supporting the idea to 44% who are against it. In fact supporters of all 13 of the other candidates are against this concept.

-49% of Trump supporters want to shut down the mosques in the United States, to only 18% against that idea. Overall only 25% of Republicans support doing that to 44% who oppose it. Again on this issue supporters of every single candidate other than Trump are against it.

-Additionally we asked voters about an assault weapons ban and only 20% of Trump voters support it to 66% who are opposed. We then asked about a ban specifically on assault weapons for Muslims, and 56% of Trump voters support that to only 22% who are opposed.

Charles Koch To Support Candidates Who Support His “Right” to Buy Elections

In an interview released last week with Susan Peters of KAKE-TV, the ABC affiliate in Wichita, Kansas, Charles Koch shared his top factor in supporting 2016 candidates:

Koch said, “The number one thing I would look at in supporting anyone in politics: Are they for the first amendment? Are they for freedom of speech?”

“So, do you consider your donations freedom of speech?” [Peters] asked.

“Absolutely, they are,” he said.

That the number one criteria of a man whose network plans to spend hundreds of millions on next year’s elections is whether they are “for the First Amendment” – that is, a radical reinterpretation of the First Amendment to prohibit Americans from effectively addressing the corrosive effect of money on our democracy – speaks volumes about the way the power of those already on top is preserved and expanded in our country. Koch, one of the wealthiest people in the country, already holds unparalleled influence in politics through the extraordinary sums of money flooding our elections from the Koch-led network, Koch Industries, and the Kochs themselves. And now, Koch’s top priority for whether he will bankroll future candidates is, in effect, whether they support his ability to continue to spend unlimited sums of money to buy elections.

This exchange is Exhibit A on the extent to which our campaign finance system is utterly broken. With our lawmakers unable to set commonsense limits on money in elections in the wake of decisions like Citizens United, Charles Koch is free to pour unlimited amounts of cash into our democracy. And he’s free to make a condition of his financial support a commitment to perpetuating that broken system.

It’s no wonder that 85 percent of Americans think we need a complete overhaul of our country’s campaign finance system. Without it, a handful of billionaires can continue to set the agenda for all of us – even when it’s an agenda targeting the rights and interests of most Americans.

Trump Claims He's Had 'Hundreds Of Phone Calls' From Eyewitnesses Of Fictional 9/11 Celebration

Donald Trump insisted yesterday that he’s received “hundreds of phone calls” from people who saw “with their own eyes” a massive celebration of the 9/11 attacks in Jersey City, something of which there are no there are no news reports, photographs or videos and which law enforcement officials say never happened.

Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway told Trump yesterday that he wanted to ask him about substantive policy issues because “this stuff gets lost because people want to rile you up and get you to say something controversial.”

So, of course, the two spent the next few minutes talking about Trump’s debunked claim about the 9/11 celebrations.

“Did you see all the people coming out now saying I was right, there were people dancing the streets, dancing on rooftops?” Trump asked. “I mean, I know it happened. And, by the way, worldwide they were dancing all over the place, they were dancing in different countries, so why wouldn’t they? I mean over there, it’s a very large Muslim population and I saw it reported, but all of a sudden people are coming out of the woodwork — I’ve had hundreds of phone calls, and I’m sure you have too, but I’ve had hundreds of people that were in New Jersey and saw it with their own eyes.”

Conway also asked Trump about yesterday’s mass shooting in California, to which Trump responded that gun violence is “a mental health problem.”

“It’s a mental health problem, it really is,” he said. “And it’s really very sad because they don’t talk about mental health, and many places like New York and California, they’ve opened up their mental asylums and let people out on the streets because they can’t afford it anymore.”

He also placed part of the blame on gun-free zones: “You know they have these gun-free zones, that’s sort of target practice for the bad ones, for the bad guys, you say ‘gun-free zone’ and they love it.”

Kim Davis' Lawyer Wants Her Named TIME's Person Of The Year

Liberty Counsel, the right-wing legal group that represented Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in her unsuccessful attempt to flout the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, released a statement yesterday urging its supporters to “vote for Kim” as TIME’s Person of the Year, since she “inspired a nation and the world to fight for religious liberty when she chose a prison cell rather than sacrificing her conscience.”

Davis has since backed down — under court orders — from her attempt to block her county office from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

In an email to supporters, Liberty Counsel chairman Mathew Staver likened Davis to Christian leaders “we admire like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Jan Huss, John Bunyan, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,” while continuing to insist that “Kim adhered to Kentucky law while standing for her First Amendment right to religious liberty and freedom of conscience.”

Kim Davis became the first Christian in America jailed as a result of the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex "marriage."

She joins a long list of people who were imprisoned for their conscience. People who today we admire like Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Jan Huss, John Bunyan, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and others like them. Each had their own cause, but they all shared the same resolve not to violate their consciences.

Kim adhered to Kentucky law while standing for her First Amendment right to religious liberty and freedom of conscience. Liberty Counsel represented Kim throughout her ordeal.

According to the magazine, TIME editors will choose a winner with the announcement on December 9. But leading to the selection, they are asking readers to "have their say," in a face-off poll.

Erik Rush: Obama Wants Billions To Die To Curb The World Population

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush berated President Obama today as “the commander in chief of ISIS,” alleging that he “created, armed, trained and funded ISIS” and that his policies “have set America up quite nicely for a major terrorist attack.”

“Americans will die, and despite his feigned outrage after the fact, it will have been due to the deliberate intention of Barack Hussein Obama,” he wrote.

According to Rush, Obama has a “proclivity for treason and crimes against humanity” and is part of “a much broader agenda” that wants to see “our planet’s human population cut by three-fourths — even overnight.”

This week, our treasonous war-criminal president flitted off to France to discuss climate change – an issue that homeless, jobless and dispossessed Americans care so much about – with a bunch of other world leaders. As if it weren’t bad enough that climate change is a counterfeit issue that exists only so Western governments might more effectively enslave taxpayers and business economically.

Perhaps to defray any discussion of his failure to dispatch ISIS (which of course he has no intention of doing), Obama said that the meeting in Paris to discuss climate change was some sort of brave and audacious “act of defiance” in the face of ISIS, given its recent attack on that city.

It isn’t the first time the administration has proffered the notion that there’s some mysterious interplay between terrorism and completely unrelated factors. One may recall the inane blatherings of State Department spokesidiots Jen Psaki and Marie Harf, who have floated ideas such as poverty causing terrorism, and that if the climate wasn’t so screwy, the world’s Muslims might not go feral en masse and kill people.

All this is leaving aside the fact that the treasonous war-criminal president in question created, armed, trained and funded ISIS – or ISIL, Islamic State, Daesh, the Keystone Kamels, or whatever appellation they’re using this month to reference the barbarians. Now, strategically displaced Muslims and strategically placed terrorists are forming a chaotic, angry wave from east to west – a wave that is cresting in Europe and, if Obama gets his way, will break upon America.

The world knows all of this, by the way; here, I am referencing the incontrovertible body of evidence that Barack Obama is effectively the commander in chief of ISIS, and arguably a better one than he is of the U.S. Armed Forces.



Our treasonous war-criminal president’s policies have set America up quite nicely for a major terrorist attack, perhaps of a much wider scope than the recent attacks in Paris. These include everything from a refusal to even rhetorically associate Islamic terrorism with Muslims, to the nationwide Syrian refugee drop, to the clandestine importation of Muslims from destabilized nations in the Middle East and Africa, to an absolute refusal to effectively monitor who comes and goes in this country.

Americans will die, and despite his feigned outrage after the fact, it will have been due to the deliberate intention of Barack Hussein Obama.

In October of 2013, the White House took down its online visitor logs, blaming a partial government shutdown that had temporarily idled 17 percent of the federal workforce. The fact is that astute individuals in the alternative press and other patriotic Americans had begun widely discussing the Rogue’s Gallery of America-hating scum that paid visits to the White House on a regular basis, some with dizzying frequency.

Obama simply wanted to stop that flow of information.

A nation like ours does not go from respecting personal liberties and the rule of law to “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone” overnight. Are there really so many ethically compromised individuals in our government that there is no hope for any among them finally deciding to exercise the rule of law and remove this tyrant? Are they just cowards, willing to let Obama touch off World War III rather than risk the Black Lives Matter crowd setting America ablaze for “taking down” our precious first black president on account of his proclivity for treason and crimes against humanity?

Or are they, as some suspect, party to a much broader agenda, perhaps one rooted in the belief that our planet’s human population cut by three-fourths – even overnight – would be much better for everyone going forward?

Troy Newman: Sting Videos Designed To 'Completely Destroy' Planned Parenthood

In a sermon at the Springfield, Illinois, iWorship Center in September, Troy Newman told the congregation about his efforts as president of Operation Rescue to end access to abortions.

Newman described the meetings he had with David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress in which they discussed the goals of their debunked “sting” videos of Planned Parenthood, which falsely alleged that the group sells fetal tissue for profit.

“We mapped out this plan, he was going to get up inside [Planned Parenthood] and we talked about how we were going to do it and what the end result was,” Newman said.

Their goal, he explained, was not simply publicity for their anti-choice views, but the total destruction of Planned Parenthood: “We said, ‘Look, if we just get on Fox News’ — and we were on Fox News, we were on there a couple weeks ago — ‘if we just got a bunch of YouTube video hits or something, if, you know, people are talking about - we would consider it a failure.’ The first and foremost thing is we wanted prosecutions. We want prosecutions, want to defund them, and, finally, we want to completely destroy the entity called Planned Parenthood. And we’re well on our way.”

Donald Trump Defends 9/11 Celebration Conspiracy Theory On Alex Jones' Show

Donald Trump has absolutely no evidence to support his claim that “thousands and thousands” of Muslim-Americans in Jersey City celebrated the fall of the Twin Towers on September 11, so naturally he turned to “InfoWars” host Alex Jones today to argue that he was right all along.

Interestingly enough, Jones is a well-known 9/11 truther, among many other conspiracy theories that he purveys on a regular basis, and has insisted that the terrorist attack was “an inside job.”

Trump told Jones that fans on Twitter and people from New Jersey who attended his recent rally in Sarasota, Florida, told him that they too saw the giant celebrations with their own eyes, proving that Trump was correct.

Personhood USA Founder Equates 'Crazy, Violent' Abortion Providers With Planned Parenthood Attacker

Yesterday, Personhood USA cofounder Cal Zastrow condemned the murder of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, but equated the gunman’s actions with those of abortion providers, saying that providers are also “crazy, violent people” who have gone “nutso” and started killing people.

Discussing the Colorado Springs attack with former Missouri state legislator Cynthia Davis on her “ Home Front” radio program Zastrow said:

Recently in Colorado Springs, a violent gunman went into the Planned Parenthood and he had a weapon, he had a gun, and he shot a bunch of people, wounded them, and then he killed three people, their beating hearts and measurable brainwaves were stopped.

On the same day in other Planned Parenthoods across the nation and world, thousands of crazy, violent people, they went off, they went nutso and they used suction machines, they used forceps, and they used poisonous drugs and they murdered thousands of little baby boys and girls and their measurable brainwaves and their beating hearts were stopped.

I condemn all those murders. I just say stop the murdering, stop the violence. Don’t shoot anybody, don’t stab them, don’t smack them, don’t slap them, and don’t suck their arms and legs off with abortion machines. I profess to be a follower of Christ, I profess to be a Christian, so I’m just saying, let’s stop all the violence.

In an email to supporters on the evening of the Colorado Springs attack, Personhood USA’s Jennifer Mason made a similar point, faulting the media for “failing to report that innocent babies are killed in that very building every day.”

In the interview with Davis, Zastrow recalled protesting in front of the Colorado Springs clinic when he was working with the Colorado-based Personhood USA to pass a fetal “personhood” amendment in the state, noting that Colorado pastor Kevin Swanson joined him in his efforts.

Zastrow blasted major anti-choice groups that reject the personhood strategy and have been pursuing an incremental strategy to restrict abortion rights, urging listeners to donate “not one more nickel, not one more penny to a pro-life group that’s not 100 percent on board with personhood.”

Instead, he said, the “pro-life” movement must realize that “Roe v. Wade is not law” and work to pass state personhood laws so that state governments will begin to “ignore Roe v. Wade” and “prosecute people for murder under the law” for conducting abortions.

Zastrow also criticized members of Congress for failing to impeach judges who rule in favor of abortion rights, saying that lawmakers are “not behaving as Christians” and are risking their own salvation.

“Not one congressman has done their duty, not one is doing their duty and introducing articles of impeachment against baby-murdering federal judges, not one,” he said.

“If there’s any congressmen listening to my voice right now,” he added, “I humbly invite you to repent of your sins and surrender your life to Jesus Christ and become a Christian and do your job as a congressman and introduce articles of impeachment now, today, against federal judges that are ruling in favor of child sacrifice.”

Donald Trump Tells Alex Jones 'Your Reputation Is Amazing'

Donald Trump appeared today on Alex Jones’ insane conspiracy theory radio show, where the two spent most of their time trading compliments about how they are both extremely smart and well-connected.

But Trump also found time to promote his new book, “Crippled America,” and lament that “if I don’t win, I’ve wasted a lot of time…because we can’t do anything to make our country great if I don’t win.”

Trump then returned to lavishing praise on Jones, and himself: “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down. You will be very, very impressed, I hope. I think we’ll be speaking a lot but you’ll be looking to me in a year or two years, let’s give me a little bit of time to run things, but a year into office you’ll be saying, ‘Wow, I remember that interview, he said he was going to do it and he did a great job.’”

That’s right, Trump, the front-runner for the GOP nomination, thinks that Jones, one of the most notorious andfranklybizarre conspiracy theorists out there, has an “amazing” reputation.

North Carolina Nonprofit Exec Produces Animated Video to Raise Awareness About Big Money in Politics

Video Show How Easy it is for Big Money to Influence Politics and the Importance of Reversing Decisions like Citizens United

WASHINGTON – A group of diabolical animated villains is secretly gathering to use big money to influence politics in this week’s winning video in the Democracy For All Video Challenge, which encourages people to speak out in support of a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics. The Democracy For All Video Challenge, spearheaded by Say No To Big Money and People For the American Way, selects a different best video every week from submissions made by people across the country.

The video, “Voters, assemble!” was created by Bryan Warner – a nonprofit communications director from Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina – and uses animation to depict a secret meeting between a group of villains who are plotting to influence politics by using big money. The video illustrates how easy it is for corporations and special interest groups to buy their way into Washington and influence policy in their favor.

This week’s winner was the final weekly winner in the competition. All of the videos submitted during the 14-weeks of the contest will now be judged by a panel that includes Michael Moore, Academy Award-winning filmmaker; Norman Lear, legendary television producer and founder of People For the American Way; and Kathleen Turner, advocate and Academy Award-nominated actress; and Dolores Huerta, civil rights activist and cofounder of United Farm Workers. The grand prize winner, who will receive $25,000, will be announced Dec. 16. In addition, five best in category videos will be awarded $5,000 each.

“For the past several years, I've been involved in work around campaign finance reform and voting rights here in North Carolina,” said Warner. “I think the impact of big money is a serious threat to the integrity of American elections. It's great to see so many people participating with these videos and uniting in an effort to protect our democracy.”

The video can be viewed at http://democracyforall.com/entries/voters-assemble. All of the winning videos to-date are available to view at www.democracyforall.com/winners. People can enter the video challenge by submitting 30-90 second videos between now and Dec. 2. Full details are available at www.DemocracyForAll.com.

“The use of animation in Bryan’s video to depict the impact of big money in politics and the need for a constitutional amendment was innovative and delivered the message loud and clear,” said Jeff Haggin, president of Say No To Big Money which created the video challenge. “We are hoping these videos will prompt Americans to let their representatives know they support the Democracy For All amendment.”

The Democracy For All Video Challenge was created by Say No To Big Money and People For the American Way to tap into the creative potential of people in the United States who support a constitutional amendment that would allow for reasonable limits to be set on money in elections. A panel of judges selects the most impactful videos with $1,000 being awarded to the best video each week. At the conclusion of the video challenge, five best in category videos will be awarded $5,000 each, with $25,000 being awarded to the best overall video. Rather than hire an advertising agency to produce the spots, the sponsor organizations developed the Video Challenge to enable the true voice of Americans to be heard and give people across the country a chance to earn money for their efforts.

The Democracy For All Amendment, currently being considered by Congress with 142 cosponsors in the House and 41 supporters in the Senate, would overturn decisions such as Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court case that paved the way for unlimited political spending by corporations and the super wealthy.

Donald Trump Joins Insane Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones, Who Calls Him The George Washington Of Today

It is really difficult to know where to begin when cataloging all of the truly insane statements and conspiracy theories levied by radio host Alex Jones, who has talked about everything from how 9/11 and Oklahoma City were false flag operations to how juice turns kids gay and space lizards are running the world.

So it isn’t really surprising that Donald Trump appeared on Jones’ show today, although we were disappointed that they didn’t delve into a discussion about their shared concerns about vaccines.

Instead, Jones dedicated the interview to showering Trump with praise, at one point even describing him as a modern-day George Washington and boasting about the candidate’s relationships with the country’s top military and intelligence leaders.

Jones told Trump that America may not exist in a few years if he doesn’t win the presidential election, a point with which Trump readily agreed.

“If we don’t get it right this time, I’m not sure if you go another four or eight years with the insanity and the stupidity of these leaders,” Trump said. “I’m not sure you’re going to be able to turn it around anymore, I think it could be over.”

Ted Cruz Vows To Fight Gay Rights In Extremist Conference Call

Update: Jackson later endorsed Cruz in a statement.

Sen. Ted Cruz continues to woo anti-gay extremists, this time appearing on a conference call for conservative activists organized by E.W. Jackson, the former GOP nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia.

During his run for office, Jackson won notoriety for his remarks about gay people, whom he referred to in one interview with fringe anti-gay leader Peter LaBarbera as “perverted,” “degenerate,” “spiritually darkened” and “frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally.”

As it happens, LaBarbera, the leader of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, was on the call that Jackson organized with Cruz last week and had a chance to ask the Texas Republican about his stance on “the gay agenda.”

LaBarbera asked Cruz how he would reverse the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling and if he would “end Obama’s policy of actually flying the rainbow flag at U.S. embassies worldwide” and oppose “the Equality Act, which I’m calling the Homosexual Superiority Act, in Congress.”

Cruz only answered LaBarbera’s first question about the Obergefell case, railing against the landmark gay marriage decision as “one of the greatest threats to our democracy we had seen in modern times,” and went on to criticize President Obama for being “more interested in promoting homosexuality in the military than he is in defeating our enemy.”

“It is the decision reminiscent of Roe v. Wade of a handful of unelected judges arrogantly and lawlessly decreeing the authority to fundamentally change our country and to tear down the foundations of the country,” Cruz added.

He also criticized Republicans who decided to “surrender” to the Supreme Court and treat Obergefell as the “settled law of the land.”

My response to this decision was that it was illegitimate, it was lawless, it was utterly contrary to the Constitution and that we should fight to defend marriage on every front,” he said, before promoting constitutional amendments to overturn the ruling and put justices up for retention elections, along with legislation “to strip the federal courts of jurisdiction over challenges to marriage.”

Cruz conceded that none of his proposals are politically feasible at the moment. Once he is elected president, however, Cruz said he will make sure that “we will not use the federal government to enforce this lawless decision that is a usurpation of the authority of we the people in this country.” He also committed to only appoint Supreme Court justices who would not “legislate from the bench” like the justices did in Obergefell.

Jackson then asked Cruz to address how “the military is beset with these new LGBT rules and I’m just hearing terrible things.” Cruz agreed:

You look at the military and one of the things we’ve seen is morale in the military under the Obama administration has plummeted, and it has plummeted because you have a commander-in-chief that doesn’t support our soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines, you have a commander-in-chief that doesn’t stand up against our enemies, that won’t even acknowledge or say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and you have a commander-in-chief that treats the military as a cauldron for social experimentation. He’s more interested in promoting homosexuality in the military than he is in defeating our enemy.

For example, the military is now focused on trying to promote transgendered [sic] soldiers. The role of the military is not to be some left-wing social experiment. The reason we have the brave men and women who sign up as service men and women to defend this nation is to stand for our values, to protect our safety and security, to protect innocent men and women and to stand up and defeat our enemies, and I would stop the shameless politicizing of our military to push a left-wing agenda that is contrary to the values and contrary to who we are as an American people and a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values.

Later in the conference call, Jackson hailed Cruz as a “real believer” who is “not one of these candidates who is going to say, ‘I believe in traditional marriage but I would attend a gay wedding if it was a friend of mine.’”

Jackson expressed confidence that Cruz would “reverse this garbage and go in and clean the military up and get that transgender craziness out of the military and stop this implementation of this sexual-psycho garbage that this president has foisted on the military.”

The military, Jackson said, is now only focused on “sexual nonsense that the left thinks is so very important,” warning that “even some of these Republicans, I think they would just leave it as is because, as he said, some of them say, ‘Oh, it’s federal law, it’s over, it’s done with and we just need to move on.’”

How are we going to move on and be prosperous as a nation if we are spitting in the face of Almighty God? And that is exactly what this whole homosexual, same-sex, transgender stuff has done,” Jackson said. “It is spitting in the face of Almighty God. And sooner or later, people are going to have to answer for it.”

“There will be a price to pay for that kind of rank rebellion because the Bible is true,” he added. “Ted Cruz understands that.”

Ironically, Jackson denied making similar remarks during his unsuccessful campaign for statewide office in Virginia.

Rick Wiles: 'God Is On Putin's Side,' Not With America's 'Mohammed President'

This week on “TruNews,” Rick Wiles and his team discussed President Obama’s involvement in restraining ISIS. According to Wiles, rather than working to destroy ISIS, Obama is legitimizing the group and attempting to expand an ISIS controlled caliphate. “There’s a reason Obama says ‘ISIL,’ not ‘ISIS’… He is saying the Muslim caliphate will extend to Israel,” Wiles claimed.

“Obama is setting up an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East,” Wiles declared. “He’s doing it from the White House.”

Wiles was so confident in his analysis that he stated that his account is irrefutable. “My critics, all of the left wing media, they will not challenge me on this issue,” he said. “Oh, they’ll make fun of me, they’ll mock me about every other thing, but they will not challenge me on this issue that Obama is a Muslim building a caliphate in the Middle East. Because it’s true. It is the truth.”

Wiles then shifted the subject to Russia’s actions in the conflict. Wiles claimed that Putin, not Obama, is actually fighting back against ISIS in the Middle East, despite the fact that Russian airstrikes rarely target the terrorist group.

“I’m going to say something that’s going to shock a lot of American evangelicals,” he said, “but God is on Putin’s side. Did you hear what I said? The Almighty God is on the side of Putin and the Russians.” Wiles stated that God is supporting Putin because he is on the side of “justice” and is “preventing the genocide of Christians, which is being orchestrated by America’s Muslim caliphate, Mohammad President in the White House.”

Inhofe: Climate Change Science Ignores God's Power

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., a vocal climate science denialist, criticized President Obama’s participation in a Paris summit to address climate change yesterday, saying that climate science ignores the role of God in determining global temperatures.

Inhofe told Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” program that Americans simply don’t care about the issue anymore and that there is nothing the U.S. government can do to reduce carbon dioxide emissions anyway.

“I know there are some out there, probably a couple hundred people, who actually believe that the world is coming to an end and man-made global warming is going to cause it, so I just want to give them the assurance that if they’re right and we are wrong, [proposed climate policies are] not going to reduce but it will increase CO2 emissions,” he said.

“They don’t understand,” he added. “God’s still up there and there’s a reason for this to happen.”

Inhofe went on to argue that human activities cannot affect the climate as the atmosphere naturally fluctuates between cooling and warming periods.

Michael Savage: Obama Is 'Bringing An Army' Of Syrian Refugees Into America

Last week on “The Savage Nation,” conservative radio host Michael Savage repeated his claim that President Obama intends to enlist Syrian refugees in a private army that will help him consolidate power over America.

Savage started his anti-refugee rant by attacking people who have noted the similarities between today’s arguments against resettling Syrian refugees in the U.S. and those used against accepting Jewish refugees who fled Nazi Germany.

“Only a mentally ill liberal would compare the Jews of the 1930s fleeing Hitler to the Syrian refugees that Obama is importing into the United States of America,” he said. “Of course they’re different. Jewish immigrants weren’t trying to kill us. Jewish immigrants didn’t come here with suicide belts.”

Savage went on to say religious aid organizations that assist refugees in the U.S. are just like “the coyotes who smuggle people into this country,” claiming that Catholic groups are just trying to make money for the Vatican, which he said explains “why the pope and Obama are so cozily in agreement on so many things.”

This led him to demand that Congress impeach President Obama and John Kerry and “try them for insanity” over their handling of ISIS, wondering if there is “a sane person in the entire Obama administration.”

The right-wing commentator eventually brought together the Obama administration’s handling of ISIS, the Syrian refugee crisis and gun control, insisting that “the deranged Obama” intends to disarm Americans while turning Syrian refugees into his personal force.

“At a time that he’s flooding us with military-age males, mainly Muslims from Syria from war zones, he wants to disarm you, so does Hillary Clinton,” he said, before arguing that Middle Eastern countries are “exporting [refugees] by airplane to us because he’s bringing an army, Obama is literally seeding an army in the United States of America.… This has nothing to do with humanitarianism. He’s insane.”

Dave Daubenmire Blames Planned Parenthood For Clinic Attack: 'Terrorism In The Womb Leads to Terrorism In The World'

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire, a conservative activist and speaker, blamed last week’s mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs on the women’s health care provider, insisting in a YouTube video he posted yesterday that Planned Parenthood clinics are “the ultimate terrorists” and “terrorism in the womb leads to terrorism in the world.”

“Folks, there’s terror every day inside those Planned Parenthood clinics,” Daubenmire said. “There was terrorism last week, there will be terrorism next week as long as we continue to allow this murder to take place inside those four walls. Terrorism in the womb leads to terrorism in the world.”

“Planned Parenthood: They’re the ultimate terrorists,” he concluded.

Michael Savage: Arrest ACLU Leaders And Declare It A Terrorist Organization

Last week, conservative radio talker Michael Savage once again railed against plans to accept Syrian refugees, this time lashing out at the American Civil Liberties Union for filing a lawsuit against Indiana Gov. Mike Pence for attempting to block the resettlement of refugees in his state.

“Me, if I were president, I would declare the ACLU a domestic terrorist organization, I would arrest their entire leadership, I would put all of their assets into a bank, etc., and I’d go from there,” he said.

Savage also suggested that he would crack down against aid organizations “making a fortune off the refugees.”

Gun Lobbyist: Gunman Attacked Planned Parenthood Because He Knew It Was Full Of Unarmed Liberals

Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America, whose endorsement Sen. Ted Cruz boasted of in a September presidential debate, claimed yesterday that the gunman who killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs last week chose his target because he knew it was a “Democrat place” and his victims would be unarmed. The patients at the Planned Parenthood were likely unarmed liberals, Pratt said, because “conservatives typically don’t knock off their children.”

In an interview with Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman, the radical gun lobbyist agreed with Kaufman that the Colorado Springs attacker shouldn’t have been allowed to have a gun, a rather odd statement seeing that Pratt wants to abolish all background checks for gun buyers.

But, Pratt said, “bad guys have a way of getting guns” and the real “pity is that nobody in the danger zone was able to protect themselves and shoot back.”

Kaufman asked why that was, given Colorado Springs’ permissive gun laws.

“They can [carry] if they wish,” Pratt answered, “but apparently when you’re talking about, let’s face it, a Planned Parenthood clinic: liberal. Conservatives typically don’t knock off their children, they’re kind of looking forward to having them. So, Planned Parenthood, they give to Democrats, it’s a Democrat place. So that’s where this dirtbag decided to go.”

He added that the Planned Parenthood was “unofficially” a gun-free zone because “that’s the way liberals think.”

Pratt did not mention that one of the three people the Colorado Springs shooter killed was a well-armed (and reportedly conservative) police officer.

This is similar to Pratt’s response to previous mass shootings. When a man killed six people and critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, Pratt alleged that the gunman “didn’t find any resistance” because his victims were Democrats. (In that incident, an armed person nearby almost shot the wrong person.) He similarly blamed this year’s shooting at a church in Charleston on church’s pastor's support for gun restrictions.
