Pat Robertson: Snow In Boston Disproves Climate Change

An exasperated Pat Robertson challenged President Obama and 99 percent of climate scientists over their belief in climate change today since, after all, the televangelist explained, it is snowing in Boston.

Robertson claimed that the Boston snowstorm helps prove that climate change is a myth created by scientists who have been manipulating data, even though climate change has actually been linked to growing storm intensity.

“The president goes in an interview with Vox, whatever that is, and said our real challenge is not ISIS, it’s not terrorists, it is global warming,” Robertson said. “Go to Boston, Mr. President.”

Pat Robertson: 'So-Called Gay People' Likely Molested, Recruited Into Homosexuality

Pat Robertson fielded a question today from a “700 Club” viewer who asked the televangelist what he should do after finding a “gay magazine” in his son’s room.

Robertson, notorious for his brand of “loving” advice on how people should deal with a possibly gay family member, said that the father should “talk to him about sexuality” and know that his son probably isn’t gay…unless someone sexually abused or “confused” him.

A lot of these so-called gay people have been either attacked or molested by some authority figure or else a magazine or something has confused them. You need to talk to him about what things are and who he is and what he is and let him grow up and find out, but don’t let him be exposed to a bunch of pornographic magazines because a gay magazine is filled with naked pictures of naked men doing sex with each other, that’s what’s in there, so you don’t want him to read that stuff. Whether it’s men and women or men and men or women and women, it doesn’t matter, you don’t want him to be seeing that.

Pat Robertson: Christians New Victims Of Don't Ask Don't Tell

Pat Robertson, who has long been deeply troubled by the presence of gay people in the military, claimed today that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has “turned the tables” and made Christians in the military the real victims of oppression.

“‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ used to refer to gays in the military, now it could apply to Christians in uniform,” he said.

Following a “700 Club” segment by Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Chuck Holton on chaplains who claim that they are facing pressure not to condemn homosexuality, Robertson accused the military of suppressing the rights of chaplains. A military service member, he said, “doesn’t need some communist or some socialist or some progressive giving him pablum and some doctrine of political correctness.”

“If we being to muzzle our chaplains, God help us,” Robertson said.

Pat Robertson Furious About Obama's Re-Election, Fears America Won't Survive

Pat Robertson is still reeling from President Obama’s re-election, and today on “The 700 Club” criticized voters for backing the president’s campaign for a second term, which he said might lead to the destruction of America.

Robertson, who claimed before the election that God told him Mitt Romney would defeat Obama and recently prayed for God to remove Obama from office, wondered today if America will “survive” Obama’s remaining time in office. “Ladies and gentlemen, somebody in America elected that man and elected him for a second term,” he said, “and the question is: can we survive as a nation these next two years before we get him replaced?”

Robertson and Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Erick Stakelbeck also alleged that Obama refuses to use force against ISIS militants in Syria. “He will not lift a finger about Syria,” Robertson said.

Actually, of the roughly 2,000 airstrikes that the U.S.-led coalition has launched against the so-called Islamic State,nearly half have been aimed at targets in Syria. U.S. airpower has targeted Syrian-based ISIS forces in Kobane, launching eleven airstrikes just yesterday, as well as Raqqa, the militant group’s self-proclaimed capital, and oil fields under their control.

Pat Robertson Opposes Vaccination Mandates, Questions Water Fluoridation

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson waxed nostalgic about the days when kids who had the measles and mumps simply lived through the experience and “just got immune” rather than receiving a vaccination. Not only did Robertson come out against vaccination mandates, but he also suggested that water fluoridation could lead to detrimental health effects.

“I’m sure that there’s some serious consequences to measles and perhaps vaccinations is the answer, but I don’t think any parent should be forced by the government to vaccinate,” he said. “There was a vaccination against polio and I know the mother of a friend contracted polio from the vaccine, so all vaccines are not benign. But, so far, this one about whooping cough and diphtheria and measles has been very effective and I think it was a good thing to do, but the problem is, natural immunity is a pretty good thing and if you have some of these diseases when you’re a kid you have immunity the rest of your life.”

Robertson linked his criticisms of vaccine mandates to water fluoridation: “I just think that we’ve got to be careful that we fall for these nostrums, you know, you have to put fluoride in all of the water because it will cut down on cavities. But what does fluoride do to people? We don’t know some of the consequences, we don’t have all of the knowledge we need and we should be very careful not to force people to do stuff that they earnestly feel they shouldn’t do.”

Pat Robertson: Obama Drinking The Muslim 'Kool-Aid'

Pat Robertson appears to be convinced that President Obama is a secret Muslim, telling “700 Club” viewers today that the president is in on an Islamist plot to take over the entire world and impose Sharia across the globe.

After comparing Islam to Nazism, Robertson said that people need to know that Islam is not a religion but a political movement bent on world domination, and Obama is helping this effort.

“It’s time our president opened his eyes, but I think maybe he already knows because he went to one of those schools over in Indonesia and he’s been drinking pretty heavily of the Kool-Aid,” he said.

700 Club: 'Radical Islamists' Behind Obama White House

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson and Christian Broadcasting Network reporter Erick Stakelbeck faulted President Obama for failing to blame Islam for the Charlie Hebdo attack. Stakelbeck said Obama and other leaders are “burying their heads in the sand” while “reaching out to Islamists.”

“The people who have the ear of the Obama administration are foot soldiers of the Muslim Brotherhood, these are radical Islamists who are advising this White House,” Stakelbeck said. “So you have a big problem here when you can’t acknowledge the enemy because the enemy is actually advising you.”

The two then made the absurd claim that no one in the Muslim community is speaking out against terrorists organizations like ISIS, with Robertson asking: “Will they ever wake up?”

Pat Robertson: Bob McDonnell, Like Adam, Was Seduced By A Woman Into Corruption

Televangelist Pat Robertson today put a new spin on former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s failed “throw the wife under the bus” defense strategy: comparing McDonnell to Adam. “The 700 Club” host explained that just as Eve seduced Adam into eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, McDonnell’s wife, Maureen, likewise led the governor astray.

“He’s like Adam, you know, Eve was the one that got seduced by the snake but Adam ate the fruit and I think Bob McDonnell got seduced,” he said.

Robertson, reacting to the sentencing of McDonnell to two years in prison, also repeated his previous allegation that the Republican governor was the victim of a political prosecution.

McDonnell attended Robertson’s Regent University (then Christian Broadcasting University Network University), where he wrote his notorious thesis on “The Republican Party's Vision for the Family,” and has remained close to the televangelist. A Robertson-led charity offered McDonnell a job as a way to help him avoid jail time.

Pat Robertson Sad That Americans Think They Have 'A Right To Get High'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson and his co-host linked Americans’ use of drugs with jazz musician Gene Krupa, who was arrested in 1943 for possession of marijuana, and with the Beatles, fuming that too many Americans today believe that they have “a right to get high.”

Robertson said he was nostalgic for the good ol’ days when society shamed people who used drugs like marijuana. Nowadays, he said, people are “sniffin’ and snortin’” without fear of embarrassment or punishment.

Pat Robertson: Without Biblical Law 'We're In Danger Of Losing All Of Our Freedom'

Following a Christian Broadcasting Network report on a city in the Philippines that requires taxi drivers to post verses from the Bible, Pat Robertson lamented on his television show today that there is no similar requirement of taxi drivers in the U.S.

Robertson said that America should make the Bible the foundation of the nation’s laws, warning that the country will collapse without stronger biblical influences in government and society at large.

“This country was raised as honoring the Bible, how far have we come now where we have allowed a few atheists to destroy the very foundations of our culture and we’re in danger of losing all of our freedom because our freedom rests, ladies and gentlemen, rests on the word of God,” he said. “You take away the Bible and you have the Nazis and you have the Communists and you have the dictators and you have evil rampant. America is still a Christian country but is far, far, far away from where it used to be.”

Pat Robertson: Obama 'Implicated' In Murder Of NYPD Officers

On his television show today, Pat Robertson said President Obama was “implicated” in the killing of two members of the NYPD this weekend by a mentally ill man who ambushed the officers after shooting his ex-girlfriend and later killed himself.

The televangelist joined other right-wing media pundits in baselessly claiming that Obama and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio stoked violence and hostility against the police and share responsibility in the murders.

Robertson even wondered if the police will go on strike to protest Obama and de Blasio.

Pat Robertson Supports Cuba Opening In Principle But Opposes It Because Obama

Televangelist Pat Robertson kicked off “The 700 Club” today with a joke about President Obama’s move to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba, saying, “If our president had been an Indian, he would have sold Manhattan for twenty-four bucks.”

Later in the show, however, Robertson said he actually supports “opening up to Cuba” … in principle. But since President Obama did it, now Robertson is against it and thinks it shows Obama’s “weakness.”

“Now listen, I am for opening up to Cuba, we have been sending aid in there, we’ve had missionaries and stuff going on in Cuba,” he said. “You know, it’s cool, we want to say the Cubans are friends, we want that and we want Cuba to be free.” But he argued that America’s 52-year-old sanctions against Cuba were just about to work in toppling the Cuban government until Obama’s announcement offered Cuban leaders a “bailout.”

He then got a little confused about the state of Latin American politics, calling the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez — whom Robertson once wanted assassinated — the current leader of El Salvador: “They were dependent on money from Nicaragua, excuse me, from the regime of Chavez in El Salvador…But Chavez is out of money and that country is gone and busted.”

Robertson also attacked “King Obama” for hiring aides who “don’t love America” and failing to help political prisoners in Cuba, even though Cuba agreed to release fifty-three political prisoners, along with a U.S. citizen and an American intelligence agent.

Pat Robertson: Gays 'Will Die Out Because They Don't Reproduce'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson took a question from a viewer who said she attends a church whose members aren’t allowed to date, leaving many church members “frustrated because we’re getting older and no one is getting married.”

Robertson found this to be absolutely ridiculous because a church with a no-dating policy will eventually “die out”… just like gay people.

“You know, those who are homosexual will die out because they don’t reproduce,” he said. “You know, you have to have heterosexual sex to reproduce. Same thing with that church, it’s doomed, it’s going to die out because it’s the most nonsensical thing I’ve heard in a long time.”

Pat Robertson: Hillary Clinton Suffered Secret 'Minor Strokes,' Would Lose To Bush-Kasich 'Dream Ticket'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson discussed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s announcement that he is exploring a presidential run, speculating that a “dream ticket” of Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich would defeat Hillary Clinton “in a walk” because he’d read something about Clinton having health problems including “little minor strokes.”

Robertson brought up Clinton’s admission that she hasn’t driven a car since 1996, when she was first lady. Although this isn’t surprising for someone who’s been under Secret Service protection for decades, Robertson speculated that it was because of an “ischemic things where she’s had little minor strokes.”

“I was reading that the reason she doesn’t drive, she hasn’t driven in maybe a decade or so, that she has some kind of ischemic things where she’s had little minor strokes, I don’t know if they’ve released the medical thing on her, but I think Hillary’s yesterday’s news,” Robertson said, perhaps a reference to Dr. Karl Rove’s diagnosis of the former secretary of state.

“Sometimes time goes by and you miss your chance, and coming back a second time, it may not play,” he said.

Robertson, who said in 2008 that God had told him who would win the presidential election, but refused to say at the time who it was, said today that he "thought for sure” that Clinton “was going to be the next president.” In what is perhaps bad news for Bush and Kasich, this was not the first time that God has provided Robertson with the wrong election prediction: He also told Robertson that Mitt Romney would defeat President Obama in 2012.

Ted Cruz: Too Extreme For Pat Robertson

Ted Cruz handed Senate Democrats a major victory this weekend when he forced an unsuccessful vote challenging President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a move that badly backfired since it allowed Democrats to move forward with votes to confirm several of Obama’s nominees that Republicans hoped to block.

While Cruz’s ploy gave Democrats a reason to celebrate, it upset right-wing televangelist Pat Robertson, who said that he won’t put up with the Texas senator and Tea Party leader’s “nonsense.”

“I tell ya’, this Ted Cruz, a lot of people in Texas just think he’s wonderful and I don’t want to rain on their parade but what he did was this, he held the Senate open by his delaying tactics and in the process Harry Reid says, ‘Oh, we’ve got some time, let’s rush through some appointees.’ So they started approving one after the other, left-wing appointments that Barack Obama had made that a more deliberative process would’ve held up, that was what Mr. Cruz gave us,” Robertson said.

“This bomb-throwing stuff and ‘I’ll be a lone wolf and I’m the man in the Senate who is going to be like Jimmy Stewart and I’m just going to Washington to represent the people,’ it’s nonsense.”

Pat Robertson: Who Needs A Doctor When God Is Your Physician

Today on “The 700 Club,” a 76-year-old viewer asked host Pat Robertson if he should yield to his family’s pleas to see a doctor even though he already asked God “to be my physician.”

Robertson defended the viewer’s refusal to take a trip to the doctor’s office: “There’s some people who think that doctors are god and they really aren’t. You’ve asked God to be your physician so stick with it and say ‘Lord, I’m asking you for it.’”

The televangelist and faith-healer qualified that while people should still take medicine, a doctor’s visit isn’t necessary.

“You’ve made a commitment to the Lord, stick with it, don’t let your family influence you, do what you feel like doing,” he said. “Live your life, God bless you.”

Ben Carson Thinks God Is Calling On Him To Save America, Stop Putinesque Obama

Christian Broadcasting Network reporter David Brody has been slowly releasing excerpts from his interview with likely Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, who has told Brody that liberals are responsible for “hate speech” and that he “feels fingers” from God telling him to make a run for the White House.

Today, Brody released another segment from his interview where the conservative activist was joined by his wife, Candy, to describe how God is calling him to make a presidential bid.

“We recognize that we are being instruments in the hand of God, he is the one who really orchestrates all of this,” Carson said.

After warning that the future of America is in peril, Carson stressed that “we are in fact a Judeo-Christian nation and I think that’s a huge part of our strength.”

“We most definitely need a spiritual awakening,” he added.

Carson also said that if he had the chance to speak to President Obama, he would tell him to stop violating the Constitution: “Our president is very much like Putin.”

Pat Robertson: Fight The 'War On Christmas' And 'Bring In The Green'

The Christian Broadcasting Network is giving away Christmas window clings which “700 Club” host Pat Robertson hopes will remind people to say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

Following a CBN advertisement about a sales clerk who catches herself before saying “Merry Christmas” and construction workers dismantling a Nativity scene, Robertson railed against the “outrageous” and “ridiculous” “War on Christmas.”

In fact, Robertson reminded shop owners of the real reason for the season: saying “Merry Christmas” to customers will boost sales!

“They better get behind Christmas. The holidays don’t bring in the green, but Christmas does,” he said.

Pat Robertson Defends Torture, Misleads On Immigration

Televangelist Pat Robertson defended the use of torture by the U.S. today, telling “700 Club” viewers that they shouldn’t be troubled by the impending release of a Senate report on torture since such “rather rough” practices were necessary to stop terrorist attacks.

“You may be shocked at some of that, but the truth is we didn’t have another incident after 9/11 and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he was caught, he was the mastermind, and they were rather rough with him but they learned invaluable information,” he said. “So I know it seems brutal but that’s the way it was.”

According to Sen. John McCain, “the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on Khalid Sheik Mohammed produced false and misleading information” while “the best intelligence gained from a CIA detainee” was “obtained through standard, noncoercive means.”

Immediately after his remarks on torture, Robertson accused the Obama administration of releasing “30,000 immigrant criminals” into the U.S., citing a wildly inflated figure that mostly includes people who committed traffic violations.

Ben Carson: Gay Rights, Pro-Choice Activists Use 'Hate Speech,' Are Enemies Of America

After telling the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody that he is “feeling fingers” from God to make a bid for the presidency, Ben Carson warned in a portion of the interview posted yesterday that gay rights advocates and abortion rights supporters are using “hate speech” to stop America from coming together.

Carson, who would never ever use inflammatory or conspiratorial language, told the extremely sympathetic Brody that such activists are “hateful people” and “the enemies” of everyday Americans because they “try to divide everybody up” and “incite people to anger and to hatred.”

“A good example would be somebody who is pro-life, the inciters would come along and say, ‘you’re anti-women, you hate women’ and they try to get women to hate you, when in fact you love women, you just happen also to love life and love babies. But that’s how they try to create the divisions,” he said. “Somebody who is pro-traditional-family, they’ll come up and say, ‘he’s a homophobe, they hate gay people, they’re nasty’ and they just try to incite all this stuff really to further their own agendas.”

Rather than following the teachings of Jesus, Carson explains, liberals are under the influence of Saul Alinsky.
