Jesse Lee Peterson: Obama Trying To Replace 'The White Man' With 'Some Black Person That Agrees With Him'

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson gave a typically confounding interview to Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, explaining that President Obama has expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement because he “grew up hating white Americans” and wants to “replace the white man” with “some black person that agrees with him.”

Peterson, who was on the program to promote his new book “The Antidote: Healing America From The Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood,” explained to Malzberg that President Obama’s mother “taught him that America was a racist society against black people” and so he “grew up hating white Americans.”

This hatred, Peterson said, along with the “emptiness” left by his father’s absence, left the president with “a lot of anger, so that’s why he can relate to Black Lives matter and others.”

“I know for a fact, and right now I’m the only one who’s saying this, that racism is an illusion,” Peterson continued. “It doesn’t even exist. And that’s why, over the last 40 years or so, we have not been able to end this idea of racism, because it doesn’t exist.”

Instead, he said, politicians like Obama are pretending that racism exists “in order to redistribute power and wealth.”

“And that’s why Barack Obama has promoted this insanity that’s happening around the universities,” he concluded, “because he wants to replace the white man, take the power away from him, and put in some black person that agrees with him, and that’s why he’s pushing it.”

Ben Stein: Maybe Obama Hates America Because He's 'Part Black'

In an interview with Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, conservative pundit Ben Stein called President Obama a “bad joke” and a “very real danger” to America, speculating that the president may have a “strong hatred of America” because “he’s part black.”

“I think the question is why is he so angry at America?” Stein said. “I don’t think there’s much question that he does not wish America well. He has a real strong hatred of America. Is it because he’s part black? I don’t know. Is it because his father was mistreated by the British in Kenya? I don’t know.”

Richard Land Gets Behind The Starbucks 'War On Christmas' Outrage

The War on Christmas season began early this year, with some honestly incomprehensible right-wing outrage over Starbucks’ insufficiently festive red holiday promotional cups.

The Starbucks cup outrage got a prominent new backer yesterday when Richard Land, the former political leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, said that Christians should boycott the coffee chain over the perceived snub.

Land was a guest on the Newsmax TV program hosted by former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth, who introduced the segment by playing a clip of the new Seth Rogen movie “The Night Before,” which Hayworth said was also part of the War on Christmas.

The Rogen movie, Hayworth said, is “raising a lot of concerns about Hollywood and the prevailing culture of the left, essentially trying to leave Christ out of Christmas or attack the whole notion of Christ at Christmas.”

On top of that, he said, “Christians get the feeling that Starbucks is waging a war on Christmas.”

“Starbucks has embraced the Left,” Hayworth told Land. “So much for diversity. Is it a big deal that they’ve gone to a red cup?”

“Well, for Christians it should be,” Land responded, “and it certainly will impact my patronage of Starbucks. You know, I’d probably have a chance to let them know, ‘By the way, I would have bought some coffee today if you had had a cup with Christmas ornaments on it or if you had a cup that was clearly Christmas, but I’m not, so that’s money you’ve lost.”

Land, riffing off a viral YouTube video in which a self-proclaimed evangelist said he got around a supposed Starbucks ban on saying “Merry Christmas” by giving his name as “Merry Christmas” to a barista, said that he would give his name as “Joseph, father of Jesus” in order to make Starbucks employees say the words.

Phyllis Schlafly: Transgender Rights Advocates 'Trying To Turn Our Boys Into Peeping Toms'

Phyllis Schlafly reacted yesterday to a Department of Education finding in favor of a transgender girl in Illinois by saying that advocates for transgender rights are “trying to turn our boys into peeping Toms.”

“They’re trying to turn our boys into peeping Toms,” Schlafly declared in an interview on Newsmax TV. “I can’t imagine why else they would want to go into their girls’ restrooms.”

She added this cryptic bit of analysis: “The word used is ‘sex’ and ‘sex’ is a word that has a lot of meanings, and they want to use it for this.”

Huckabee: Congress Should Defund The White House To Stop Immigration Plan

Mike Huckabee reacted yesterday to the news that the Department of Homeland Security was reportedly planning ways to circumvent a Texas judge’s injunction of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration by suggesting that congressional Republicans should stop the Obama administration from functioning altogether by cutting off funding for the White House.

“I think he probably will. Why wouldn’t he?” Huckabee said in an interview on Newsmax TV. “He’s got a Republican Congress that has never tried to slow him down on his unconstitutional actions. They don’t try to slow down the judicial branch when it goes into judicial overreach and practices what Thomas Jefferson would have called judicial tyranny. They’ve ignored the typical checks and balances that are the constitutional duties of the other branches of government. So I think Obama’s going to just go ahead and do whatever he thinks he can get away with, and up until now he’s gotten away with pretty much anything he wanted to do.

“And I hold the Republican Congress responsible and accountable. It’s time for them to step up, and if they have to cut the funding out of the White House and simply not appropriate funds for him to function, they have the power of the purse, they simply need to start exercising it.”

Rand Paul: The Polls Are Skewed!

Sen. Rand Paul has been trailing in Republican presidential polls, with a new Quinnipiac poll in Iowa placing him with single-digit support, behind Ben Carson, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

But the Kentucky Republican isn’t giving up hope, telling Newsmax TV in an interview posted online yesterday that the polls have been “skewed” by the presence of “a celebrity reality TV star.”

Ben Carson: 'PC Methodology' Is Persecuting Christians

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV yesterday that there is rising anti-Christian sentiment in America because people “buy into the PC methodology.”

“I don’t think most people, if they really stopped and thought about it would say, ‘I’m anti-Christian,’ but they buy into the PC methodology and hence they find themselves going with that crowd,” he said.

One way to stem the tide, he said, would be for Congress to pass legislation undermining the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. “I’m not an anarchist, it is the law of the land, but that doesn’t mean we can’t change it,” he said. “It doesn’t mean that there isn’t a reason that we have separation of powers and checks and balances, and clearly when one branch oversteps their boundaries, it’s time for the next one to act.”

Later in the interview, Malzberg claimed that President Obama doesn’t care about the persecution of Christians in the Middle East or terror attacks in Israel, falsely claiming that the White House didn’t respond to an attack that killed three rabbis in a Jerusalem synagogue last year.

“I don’t think he’s moved by dead Christians or dead Jews,” Malzberg said, “I think he’s moved by dead Muslims and dead thugs at the hands of police.”

“Well, you know, the sad thing is that a lot of people are buying into his way of thinking,” Carson responded, “and it’s very dangerous. We need to understand that America is a unique place. You can be, you can have an American dream. But is there a dream for any other place? I don’t think so. And we shouldn’t be so anxious to give it up, give up all our values and principles for the sake of political correctness.”

Franklin Graham: 'Middle East Is Burning' Because Obama's Too Focused On Gay Rights

In an interview on Newsmax TV last night, Rev. Franklin Graham blamed the Syrian refugee crisis on President Obama’s support for LGBT rights, claiming that “the Middle East is burning” because the Obama administration has been “more focused” on LGBT rights “than anything else.”

Host J.D. Hayworth, a former GOP congressman, asked Graham: “Why do you think President Obama has taken so little interest in helping to protect Christians in the Middle East?”

“Well, he’s more interested in policies that are against Christians,” Graham responded, “in this country, and going around the world promoting same-sex marriage and the agenda of the gay and lesbian community. And I’m not here to bash the gays and lesbians and they certainly have rights, I understand all that, but this administration has been more focused on that agenda than anything else and as a result the Middle East is burning and you have more refugees moving today since World War II, and it could have been prevented.”

Graham then praised Pope Francis for reportedly meeting privately with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who has attempted to prevent her county office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, saying that Davis is a victim of discrimination simply for standing up for her view that “homosexuality is a sin against God.”

“Christians need to be protected from these new laws that are coming out and discriminating against Christians and forcing Christians to do things that go against their conscience and go against the teaching of the Bible,” he said. “Again, homosexuality is a sin against God. Now, if a gay or lesbian person is watching, I’m not here to bash you or anything like that, I’m just here to tell you the truth, that this is what the Bible teaches.”

Mike Huckabee: Obama Wears 'Costumes' In Other Countries Yet Allows Gay People To See Pope Francis

Mike Huckabee continued his campaign of outrage against President Obama for daring to include pro-gay-rights and pro-choice Christians among the thousands of people invited to a reception with Pope Francis this week, telling Newsmax TV yesterday that the president was “disrespectful” and “not being a very gracious host.”

Huckabee was galled that Obama invited these “dissidents” to “instruct the pope on what the doctrine of the church should be,” especially since, he claimed, Obama goes out of his way to accommodate other world leads by bowing to heads of state and even “will often take on robes and various costumes to fit into the local culture.”

Obama did in fact bow to the pope when he arrived in the U.S. yesterday, following a long line of U.S. presidents who have bowed when meeting foreign leaders.

Brigitte Gabriel: Refugee Crisis Part Of Obama's 'Plan' To 'Intermingle America'

Conservative pundit and short-lived Republican presidential candidate Dennis Michael Lynch guest-hosted Steve Malzberg’s Newsmax TV show yesterday, where he invited ACT! for America’s Brigitte Gabriel to discuss her efforts to keep the U.S. from resettling refugees from Syria’s civil war.

Gabriel, who will be speaking alongside several GOP presidential candidates at this week’s Values Voter Summit, claimed that Muslim refugees currently in the country “are not assimilating because they have a different value system,” which “will prevent them from assimilating no matter how long they stay in our country.”

“They are coming to your neighborhood,” she warned, “they are coming to your state, you need to know who’s coming and how many of them are coming and whether you can stop it.”

Lynch then asked Gabriel about his theory that President Obama is intentionally allowing ISIS to gain territory in order to cause a refugee crisis that will in turn “transform” America.

“He said he was going to fundamentally transform America,” Lynch said. “I’ve always believed he was going to do it through immigration. There is a part of me that believes he did not want to take out ISIS, he does not want to take out ISIS, because it creates an incredible refugee issue. … Do you think this is all part of his plan?”

“Yes it is,” Gabriel agreed, “and he is already partly changing America because that’s his values. He does not believe in American exceptionalism, he believes that America has to be on par with the rest of the world and therefore we are all one, and that’s why he wants to intermingle America, to have a population of every corner of the world, whether or not they are equal to us or not.”

Huckabee: Planned Parenthood Like ISIS Because Both 'Take People's Heads Off'

Mike Huckabee said in an interview with Newsmax TV yesterday that Hillary Clinton owes him an “apology” because after criticizing him for claiming that the Iranian nuclear deal would march Israelis to the “door of the oven,” she made an oblique reference to “boxcars” in a recent speech about immigration.

Huckabee also lit into Clinton for saying that the Republican Party’s “extreme views on women” are what you might expect from “some of the terrorist groups. Planned Parenthood, Huckabee insisted, are the ones who are “most like terrorists.”

Saying that the media had applied a “total double standard” in its coverage of his "legitimate and appropriate" Holocaust remark, Hucakbee said, “It was also a double standard when she was talking about Planned Parenthood and Republicans are like terrorists."

"I’ll tell you what terrorists do," he said. "Terrorists take people’s heads off, that’s what they do. Planned Parenthood takes the heads off of unborn children and sells the body parts. So if you want to talk about what is most like a terrorists, is it a Republican trying to save a human life or is it Planned Parenthood murdering human life and selling the body parts as if they were selling parts of a car.”

Huckabee made a similar comparison between Planned Parenthood and ISIS at a campaign stop in Iowa last week.

Rick Santorum Pledges To Sign Unconstitutional Birthright Citizenship Repeal

In an interview yesterday with Newsmax TV after a press conference at which he reiterated his support for ending birthright citizenship, Rick Santorum promised that as president he would “absolutely” sign a bill repealing the right, saying that it could probably be done without a constitutional amendment.

Ignoring the clear history of the 14th Amendment, Santorum told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg that it wasn’t clear whether the Constitution requires that children of foreign nationals born on U.S. soil be granted citizenship. Santorum said that he would leave it up to the Supreme Court to interpret the stipulation that birthright citizenship applies only to people “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States — long interpreted by the courts as excluding only a small class of people such as the children of ambassadors.

“That’s a decision that’s actually appropriately left up to the Supreme Court,” Santorum said. “These are the kinds of decisions that the Supreme Court should be making with respect to how do we determine somewhat vague language in the Constitution, not doing what they did and have been doing routinely is creating new constitutional rights.”

When Malzberg asked if the Supreme Court has ever “weighed in on whether the 14th Amendment covers these babies born of illegals,” Santorum replied that “to my knowledge, they have not.”

In fact, the Supreme Court did just that in 1898, ruling that a California-born child of Chinese immigrants, who were later barred from returning to the United States under the Chinese Exclusion Act, could not be denied citizenship under the 14th Amendment. That case, U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, cemented the right to birthright citizenship guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.


Scott Walker 'Wouldn't Change' Military's Transgender Ban

In an interview with Newsmax TV that was posted online yesterday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said that he “wouldn’t change” the military’s prohibition on transgender people serving openly, as the Pentagon is preparing to do.

J.D. Hayworth, the former Republican congressman from Arizona who is now a Newsmax host, asked Walker about Jeb Bush’s comment that he would be “fine” with transgender people serving openly in the military as long as it wouldn’t negatively affect morale. “As commander in chief, what would be your position on transgender and gays and lesbians serving in our armed forces?” he asked.

“I wouldn’t change the policy,” he said. “And I think at a time when we just came off the week when four Marines and a petty officer in the Navy were ambushed and killed at a recruiting center, where we see the current administration under the Obama-Clinton doctrine not lifting the political restrictions on our men and women in uniform in Iraq, when we see the challenges we face around the world, I think those of us who are talking about running for president need to focus on what we need to do to rebuild the military.”

“Our goal is to be peace, but there will be times when America must fight, and I think it needs to be clear that Americans fight to win, and our men and women in the military need to have the resources to do that,” he said, “so as president I’m going to spend my time focused on those issues, not those others.”

Hayworth asked the same question of Mike Huckabee last week, to which the former Arkansas governor replied that lifting the military’s ban on transgender people would undermine morale.

Land: Obama Promoting 'Extreme Gay Rights' Abroad

U.S. Religious Right leaders have not been happy with President Obama’s criticism of Kenya’s criminal prohibition on homosexuality during his visit to the country last week, with Franklin Graham accusing the president of “exporting the acceptance of immorality” and Bryan Fischer deeming the president “rude.”

In an interview with Newsmax TV on Monday, former Southern Baptist Convention policy head Richard Land, agreed with Graham’s comments, accusing the president of promoting “extreme gay rights” by speaking out against Kenya’s law, which punishes homosexuality by up to 14 years in prison.

Land also accused the administration of "trying to blackmail governments overseas” to lift anti-LGBT restrictions.

Mike Huckabee: Transgender Service Members Will Hurt Morale, Turn Military Into 'Social Club'

In clip of an interview with Newsmax TV that was posted online today, Mike Huckabee criticized the Pentagon’s move to end the ban on open military service by transgender people, saying that openly transgender service members would “affect morale” because “men are men and women are women.”

“The military is not a social organization,” he said. “The military is not a place where we try out experiments. The military is designed to kill people and break things. The purpose of the military is to train a fighting force to defend this country and to fight our battles. It’s not to fight the battles of sexual identity or orientation. It’s to fight the battles that threaten American sovereignty and American freedom.”

He then compared providing medical care to transgender people to elective breast enhancement surgery: “We don’t do breast enhancements, which would be a part of that. If we’re going to do it for somebody who’s transgender, would we not do it for a female who said, ‘I’d feel better about myself if I was a 38D rather than a 34A?'”

The military, Huckabee concluded, is “not designed to be a social club or some type of organization where we help people feel better about themselves," adding, "if there's something that makes it difficult for you to defend this country, maybe the military is not the right place for you."

Huckabee has pledged to restore the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy for gay and lesbian service members if he is elected president.

Richard Land: Planned Parenthood Smear Videos The 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' Of Legal Abortion

Richard Land, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, said yesterday that a conservative group’s new series of videos falsely claiming that Planned Parenthood is “selling aborted baby” parts may be the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” of the fight against legal abortion.

“I think that this may be the equivalent of ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’” Land said on Newsmax TV. “You know, when Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote that book, she put a human face on slavery. And Lincoln met her after the war had started and said, ‘I’m finally glad to meet the woman who wrote the book that started the war.’ I think that you may, the American people may now be forced to confront the evil and the barbarity and the savagery of the pro-abortion movement.”

Tom Tancredo: Marriage Equality Will Criminalize Support For The Confederate Flag, Criticism Of Islam

Former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo managed to tie two of the biggest issues of the week together on Tuesday when he railed against efforts to take down Confederate flags, saying that the Koran is an even more dangerous symbol, and then claimed that thanks to the Supreme Court’s recent marriage equality decision, such comments will soon be illegal.

When Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg asked Tancredo to discuss a Facebook post he recently wrote comparing the Confederate flag to the Koran, Tancredo responded that efforts to “erase” the flag are misguided.

“However,” he continued, “there is something else out there, our president really happens to enjoy it, we teach about it in the public schools, we tell people, kids in the public schools to respect it. It’s called the Koran and it’s responsible for far more, far more murders, enslavement, the most horrible things, and it’s still going on. It’s not history, it’s still happening. And that, we don’t ban it, heavens no, we even tell kids we gotta read it in our schools and respect it.”

Malzberg then changed the subject, asking Tancredo about the Supreme Court’s marriage decision, which Tancredo said was connected. Not only will the decision eventually lead to the criminal prosecution of pastors, he claimed, but soon “everything I just said” about the Confederate flag and the Koran will be “outlawed” due to the institution of unconstitutional hate speech prohibitions.

“Mark my words, that’s what’s coming,” he said. “Dark days ahead, Steve.”

Richard Land: Marriage Equality Ruling Could Send Pastors To Jail

Warning that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision puts religious freedom “absolutely, unquestionably and unequivocally” at risk, former Southern Baptist Convention political official Richard Land said today that the decision could even land pastors in jail for refusing to perform same-sex marriages.

“Unless we have a spiritual awakening in America, the battle for traditional marriage is over and the battle for religious freedom has begun,” Land told Newsmax’s J.D. Hayworth.

“I know it’s difficult for liberals to understand this, but we have convictions,” he said. “And convictions can’t be coerced and they can’t be intimidated and they can’t be threatened. We’re going to speak the truth in love. Just because five lawyers say same-sex marriage is legal, that doesn’t make it moral and that doesn’t make it right.”

When Hayworth asked him if the Supreme Court’s decision means pastors could end up in jail for refusing to perform marriages for gay and lesbian couples, Land responded that “it could” after a few “intermediate steps.”

Of course, in the dozens of states that allowed gay and lesbian couples to marry before last week’s decision, not one pastor has been thrown into jail for refusing to perform such a marriage, just as nearly 50 years after the Supreme Court struck down interracial marriage bans, clergy are still free to refuse to perform such marriages. Even some of Land’s fellow Southern Baptist leaders have denied the possibility that pastors will be sent to jail for refusing to perform gay couple’s weddings.

Steve King Blames Drugs For Charleston Shooting, Says Undocumented Immigrants Have Killed More People Than 9/11

Steve Malzberg invited Rep. Steve King onto his Newsmax program on Friday to discuss issues ranging from the church shooting in Charleston, which King blamed on prescription medication, to undocumented immigrants, whom he said have killed “multiples of the victims of the September 11 attacks,” to Caitlyn Jenner, whom he said illustrates “how far this society has gone from rational thought.”

The Iowa Republican also had some thoughts on Hillary Clinton’s slam of Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric in his presidential announcement. King said that Clinton unfairly made the “presumption that perhaps there will be some white people that might discriminate against some not-so-white people on the basis of being inspired by Trump’s speech.”

He also attempted to criticize the former secretary of state for inconsistency: “It’s Hillary that says ‘I’m not going to channel my husband,’ but she would channel Donald Trumps announcement speech instead to try to gain a political advantage out of that.”

David Horowitz: 'Criminal' Hillary Clinton Leaked Info To Benghazi Attackers Through Huma Abedin

David Horowitz, the conservative activist whose annual retreats have attracted GOP presidential hopefuls including Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Rick Perry, alleged in an interview with Newsmax TV yesterday that Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin leaked information to the militants who killed four American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012.

“Look, Hillary Clinton, this woman is a criminal,” Horowitz told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg. “This woman got four people killed in Benghazi. She, you know, disclosed her private emails to Huma Abedin, a Muslim Brotherhood operative that showed where Ambassador Stephens was all the time, making him a perfect target.”

Abedin has long been at the center of far-right conspiracy theories about Muslim Brotherhood “penetration” of the Obama administration. The conspiracy theory outlet WorldNetDaily has also suggested that Abedin contributed to the Benghazi attack.

Horowitz also claimed that Democrats as a whole have “betrayed this country” in the fight against terrorism.
