Tom DeLay: Obama 'Surrendered' To Cuba To Help 'His Socialist Friends'

Tom DeLay, the former House Republican majority leader, appeared on Newsmax TV today to denounce President Obama’s pledge to reestablish ties with Cuba and the his swap of three convicted Cuban agents for imprisoned American contractor Alan Gross, an American intelligence agent, and Cuba’s promise to release of dozens more political prisoners.

“This is surrender,” DeLay said. “This is a president who is a socialist to begin with reaching out to his socialist friends and opening up relationships with one of the most oppressive regimes in the world. The only worse one I can think of right now is North Korea.”

DeLay later insisted that Obama wants to “surrender to them” as a way to punish Cuban Americans for disproportionately voting Republican: “Frankly, I think this could also be payback by Obama to those Cubans who normally support Republicans.”

Michele Bachmann Pledges To Give 'Female Perspective' To Counter Hillary Clinton, Remind People Of Benghazi

After giving her farewell address to the U.S. House last night, Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on Newsmax today to discuss her plan to stop Hillary Clinton.

Bachmann told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg that she plans to “weigh in with a female perspective” on the 2016 presidential election, reminding people that Clinton is the “godmother of Obamacare” and is to blame for the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Ironically, the House Intelligence Committee, where Bachmann serves as a Republican member, last month issued a report debunking many of the Benghazi conspiracy theories that Bachmann hopes will topple a potential Clinton presidential candidacy.

Peter King: 'Hate America' Club Used Torture Report To Distract From Obamacare

Not only are conservatives outraged over the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on the use of torture by the CIA, but some even seem to think that the report was made public in order to distract Americans from a congressional hearing on Obamacare.

In an appearance today on Newsmax, Rep. Peter King claimed that the CIA didn’t torture anyone — calling their enhanced interrogation techniques “mild” — and decried torture critics for having a “‘hate America first’ attitude that is self-loathing, self-hatred.”

The New York Republican then told host J.D. Hayworth that the report came to light as a way to deflect attention from Jonathan Gruber’s testimony to the House Oversight Committee on Obamacare.

Pat Buchanan: Body Cameras For Police 'A Libel And Slander Of America'

Pat Buchanan is fuming over President Obama’s call to outfit police officers with body cameras, telling Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today that such a move is decidedly anti-American.

After Hayworth, a former Republican congressman, asked the conservative columnist if he sees the body camera proposal as a method of “profiling police officers,” Buchanan claimed that requiring such cameras wrongly blames law enforcement for violence in America.

“That is a libel and a slander on America,” Buchanan said. “And a libel and a slander on police.”

Bill Donohue: Non-Religious People Need Therapy Since They Die Prematurely And Are Disproportionately Insane

Bill Donohue’s latest “Christian persecution” campaign took another bizarre twist yesterday when he told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg that he is willing to pay for therapy for non-religious people…since they are probably insane.

“They believe that freedom is license to do whatever they want,” the Catholic League president explained. “They don’t want to be told anything, which is why they die prematurely, they’re unhappy, that’s why we have a disproportionate number of agnostics and atheists in the asylum, all of this is true.”

Donohue said “secularists” have an inferior “mental health, physical health and degree of happiness,” adding: “They got to work it out, fine, I’ll help pay for their therapy, just take your hands, your mitts off the Catholics during Christmas.”

Bill Donohue: Christians In Cuba Have More Rights Than Americans

The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue stopped by Newsmax TV yesterday to advertise his Christmas-themed billboard campaign likening the supposed persecution of Christians in the U.S. to the violent targeting of Christians in the Mideast, insisting that liberals would brutally oppress Christians in America if they could get away with it.

Donohue bizarrely claimed that he posted the billboards in order to “make a point” but only to then immediately take that point back.

“The point is trying to make a point and then taking it back,” he said. “I am obviously not going to equate people who bash us in radio and television and the media in general and the entertainment industry with people who are going to behead us, but Christians and Catholics in particular are fed up with being bashed with impunity. It’s all about hate speech.”

When Malzberg asked if American liberals “would, if they could, go further” by violently attacking Christians, Donohue responded that “there’s no question about it.” “They would turn us into Cuba. As a matter of fact, Cuba I think has more rights now. The Cubans in Miami are building a Catholic church there and I don’t think you can get away with that in many parts of this country,” he added.

GOP Congressman Denounces People Protesting Eric Garner Case

Rep. Matt Salmon has joined his GOP colleague Peter King in denouncing critics of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner, which sparked protests throughout the country.

While speaking with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, the Arizona Republican said protesters should recognize that “it was clear to the grand jury that [the police officer] operated under the scope of his authority and he did what any reasonable officer would’ve done to subdue somebody that was resisting arrest.”

“Justice was served,” he added. “That’s the way the process works.”

Salmon added that he is tired of those who “constantly” bring up “allegations of profiling or whatever the case may be,” including “people who profit off of perpetuating these kinds of schisms in our society like Al Sharpton and those guys that are always constantly out there trying to make something that doesn’t exist.”

Alan Keyes: 'Hitlerian' Obama Using Ferguson To 'Turn Our Cities Into Powder Kegs That Will Explode'

Conservative activist Alan Keyes, who apparently has been watching White House speeches on Ferguson that never took place in the real world, accused President Obama today of using the protests over Michael Brown’s death to intimidate Republicans in Congress into yielding to his political agenda.

Keyes, who faced off against Obama in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois, told Newsmax TV host Ed Berliner that the president is “exploiting this situation by way of threatening the Republicans, saying that there will be massive unrest if they don’t knuckle under to his will and trying to prove that he’s got the power to turn our cities into powder kegs that will explode in the face of anybody who opposes him.”

“It’s a Hitlerian tactic and I think we ought not to as Americans respond to it with anything but contempt,” he said.

Pat Buchanan: Ferguson Protesters Committed 'Massive' Civil Rights Violations By Shutting Off Roadways

Speaking today with Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg, who called the outrage over the failure to indict the officer responsible for Michael Brown’s shooting “insane,” Pat Buchanan insisted that Obama administration officials “slandered” the city of Ferguson “when neither the cops nor Darren Wilson nor the city have done anything to deserve this.”

“What in heaven’s name have the Ferguson police ever done to deserve what has been done to them?” he added.

Buchanan then compared Ferguson demonstrators and people engaging in civil disobedience to the aides of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who allegedly shut down access to a bridge in order to punish a city’s mayor for not endorsing him.

Buchanan said that like Bridgegate, the Ferguson protesters are engaging in a a grand conspiracy that violates people’s civil rights: “What about the national conspiracy to get together to shut down cities and block highways and block bridges and block commuter trains orchestrated and organized, why isn’t the Justice Department investigating that? That massive violation of the civil rights of commuters and travelers and workers and everyone.”

Huckabee: 'Incredibly Dangerous' For Congressmen, Rams Players To Use 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' Gesture

Mike Huckabee said today that he was “disgusted” by the “incredibly dangerous” decision of some black members of Congress and St. Louis Rams players to use the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture to protest the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, arguing that such actions actually inspire looting and murder.

In an interview with Newsmax TV host J.D. Hayworth, a former GOP congressman, Huckabee said he “found it just incredibly dangerous that you have members of Congress on the floor of Congress holding up their hands in the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ position as if to say that somehow that is going to get you shot.”

Huckabee, who previously compared Ferguson demonstrators to the killers of civil rights activist Medgar Evers, said people making the gesture are effectively “teaching” young people “to go loot a store, beat up a cop, reach for his gun and hope you get it before he does.”

“This is not only foolish and dangerous but it is really on the verge of anarchy and I’m just disgusted that you have NFL players, politicians and others who no matter what the evidence reveals, no matter how many sworn testimonies show that Darren Wilson — it’s a tragedy that the young man got shot, but this is a young man who had just roughed up a store owner, just robbed a store and now he’s going after a cop’s gun and it’s a horrible thing that he was killed but he could’ve avoided that if he had behaved as something other than a thug,” he said.

Jesse Lee Peterson: 'Michael Brown's Parents Should Be Shunned' For Failing To 'Raise A Decent Citizen'

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson is making the media rounds this week to blame Michael Brown and his parents for the Missouri teen’s shooting death at the hands of a police officer.

“I may be the only one in America who does not grieve for Michael Brown’s parents,” Peterson told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday. “The reality is Michael Brown is dead because of Michael Brown. It’s not officer Darrell Wilson’s fault.”

Peterson went on to blame Brown’s parents, who he said should be “shunned” because they “failed to raise a decent citizen”:

“Also, his parents are hypocrites because, first of all, they didn’t raise Michael Brown in the right way. They failed him. They failed to raise a decent citizen. And so they’re partly responsible for the death of Michael Brown as well. And I have to tell you, the way the president, the attorney general, and these so-called civil rights leaders are carrying on is shameful. Michael Brown’s parents should be shunned, they should be made to feel embarrassed for the way that they raised, that they raised their son.”

Peterson made similar comments in a Fox News interview yesterday, telling Neil Cavuto that “Michael Brown is dead because he had failing parents who decided they were not going to raise him in the right way”:

In a WorldNetDaily column earlier this week, Peterson added that he thinks African American leaders who are upset about Brown’s death are also “products of bad parenting”:

With these kinds of parents as role models, Michael Brown didn’t have a chance. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and bad parents raise rotten children.

Michael Brown is dead because of Michael Brown and because his parents failed him.

Look at the so-called “leaders” who are blaming the cops and “racism” for Brown’s death. Most of them are products of bad parenting:

· Barack Obama continues to draw moral equivalency between police and rioters. His dad was a raging alcoholic who neglected him. His mother was a radical who pushed young Obama on bad role models who shaped his anti-American and racist worldview.

· Jesse Jackson was born out of wedlock, and his biological father did not raise him.

· Al Sharpton’s father left his wife to have a relationship with Sharpton’s half-sister. Sharpton grew up without his father.

The very people that are making excuses for bad parenting and bad behavior didn’t have good parents themselves.

Dinesh D'Souza Wants To Give Obama A Spanking

Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza spoke with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg today about how Republicans in Congress should respond to President Obama’s executive action on immigration. As D’Souza cogently explained, the GOP should treat him like a spoiled baby who needs a good spanking.

D’Souza called Obama an “extremely spoiled brat” who has “been a spoiled brat since he was two,” insisting that the president is acting like a misbehaved infant who wants to “see whether you spank him or not.”

“And the big question is, will the Republicans now do what is needed and spank him?” D’Souza asked.

D’Souza said that the GOP should organize a rally of immigrants who opposed Obama’s plans, noting that he wouldn’t be able to attend such a rally since he is under travel restrictions after pleading guilty to violating campaign finance laws.

Obama, D’Souza said, doesn’t care for patriotic immigrants like D’Souza and instead wants immigrants who share his supposed contempt for America: “The key issue has never been immigration or non-immigration but what kind of immigrants we want in this country and whether they come legally or illegally. We want immigrants who will pull the bandwagon; he wants immigrants who will sit in the bandwagon. We want immigrants who embody the spirit of 1776; he wants immigrants who embody the envious, covetous spirit of 1968. So we’re fighting over whether we want productive immigrants or unproductive people like Obama himself.”

Rick Santorum: Obama Becoming A 'Tyrant' Who Is 'Backing Americans In A Corner'

In an interview on Newsmax TV today, Rick Santorum argued that Obama’s actions on deportation relief represent “something that we’ve never dealt with in American history” — despite the fact that several recent GOP presidents also used executive action on immigration.

“The president has acted like a tyrant and he has acted against the Constitution and he has thrown the Republicans and he has thrown the country a curveball, we’ve never dealt with anything like this before,” Santorum said. “That has to be not just backing Republicans in a corner, it’s backing Americans in a corner of a president who thinks he is above the law and above the Constitution.”

Ben Carson: Obama Has 'Nefarious Agenda' To Bring In Government-Dependent Voters

In an interview this morning with Newsmax TV, conservative activist and potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson insisted that President Obama’s executive action providing temporary deportation relief for some undocumented immigrations is part of a “nefarious agenda” to bring government-dependent voters to the U.S.

“I think he’s very smart, he’s very clever, he’s very scheming,” Carson told host J.D. Hayworth. “And, boy, if he could use that intellect on behalf of the American people rather than on behalf of his nefarious agenda, we would be doing quite well.”

“Essentially, is he just trying to instead of get out the vote, bring in the vote?” asked Hayworth, a former GOP congressman from Arizona. “Is this all designed to have new voters — despite the fact he claims they’re not going to get citizenship — is the long-term goal to bring in a new class of voters dependent on government?”

“Of course it is,” Carson replied.

Later in the interview, Carson offered his recommendation for how Republicans in Congress should respond to the president’s announcement: by shutting down the government, but only the parts that are “important to the president” and not any parts that will “hurt the American people.”

“I hope they put in front of them a whole list of the things that can be defunded, and then look specifically at the ones that are going to hurt [Obama] and those around him. Defund those things. I don’t want things that are going to hurt the American people,” Carson said, claiming that during the sequester, President Obama chose to cut funding on programs that would “inflict the most pain on the American people.”

“It’s not an all-or-none phenomenon,” he said. “You don’t have to shut down the important parts of the government. You just defund the things that are important to the president.”

Carson did not provide any specifics of programs to cut that would hurt Obama but not anybody else.

Allen West Predicts An 'Incredible Cry' For Obama's Impeachment

Former Florida congressman Allen West, who has previously called for Congress to impeach President Obama, said on Newsmax today that after Obama makes his planned announcement on immigration, Americans will express an “incredible cry” for his impeachment.

When host Steve Malzberg asked him whether Republicans push for impeachment, West responded that the president’s immigration announcement will provoke “an incredible cry from the American people” so that Republicans won’t even “need to talk about it.”

Rep. Kelly: Impeaching Obama Not Off The Table Because He's Dragging America Into A Civil War

Rep. Mike Kelly, Republican of Pennsylvania, reacted angrily today to President Obama’s indication that he will soon temporarily relieve some undocumented immigrants of the threat of deportation, telling Newsmax host Ed Berliner that such a move will push the country into an “internal crisis” not seen since the days leading up to the Civil War.

Kelly told Berliner that House Republicans shouldn’t take impeachment off the table:

“The country is witnessing something right now that I don’t think in our entire history we’ve ever looked at, a constitutional crisis,” he said, calling it “sickening” that many Democrats have applauded Obama’s immigration stance.

Of course, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush also used executive action to change status of certain undocumented immigrants.

He also harkened back to the Civil War and recommended that the president read Rick Warren’s book “A Purpose Driven Life” to temper his ego: Right now in the history of our country we have never had such an internal crisis as we’ve had, not since the mid-1800s, of what we’re going through right now. Why would this president choose this issue and cause a constitutional crisis? I really suggest to him, there’s a book out that I read years ago, it was really a turning point in my life, by pastor Rick Warren and it’s called ‘A Purpose Driven Life’ and the very first words: ‘It’s not about me.’ This is the president who everything is about him, it’s about his legacy or what he’s going to say is his legacy. I would hate to see him go down in history, or maybe he wants to go down in history, as the guy who tore America apart.

Lamar Smith: Democrats Want Immigration Action Because They're 'Banking On' New Votes

Rep. Lamar Smith, Republican of Texas, said today that the “extreme fringe of the Democratic Party” is supporting an executive action providing deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants because it “wants to treat those from other countries better than we treat our own American citizens” and ultimately is “banking” on the votes of new immigrants.

“It’s amazing that an American president, a United States president, would put the interest of those who don’t live in the country or are in the country illegally ahead of the interest of American citizens,” Smith told Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth.

When Hayworth asked Smith about far-right columnist Selwyn Duke’s argument that deportation relief would amount to a “get-out-the-vote drive” for Democrats, Smith agreed, saying “demographics” indicate that immigrants covered under the proposed executive action — which does not include a path to citizenship or voting rights — will give 80 percent of their votes to Democrats.

“I wish that weren’t the case, but those are the demographics and the president and the Democratic Party are banking on them, and that’s why I say they’re putting the interest of other individuals ahead of the interests of U.S. citizens,” he said.

Brigitte Gabriel: 'No Chance' Of Muslim Americans 'Blending In' To U.S.

Anti-Muslim activist Brigitte Gabriel told Newsmax host Dennis Michael Lynch last week that there is “no chance” of American Muslims ever “blending in” with U.S. society.

In an interview on Friday, Lynch told Gabriel that he had recently traveled to Dearborn, Michigan, and “did not see all but maybe one or two homes with an American flag waving outside” and at one point stopped to ask for directions and was ignored.

“Why is it that the Muslim community is not blending in with the rest of American society?” he asked.

“Because this is what they are being told in mosques across the United States,” Gabriel responded, claiming that American mosques are “instructing their people not to shake hands on Christmas or Easter or wish the Americans a happy holiday.”

“Is there any chance that the Muslim community will ever turn it around?” Lynch asked.

“No,” Gabriel responded, “there is no chance, we are seeing a reverse, actually, instead of a blending in, instead of assimilation.”

Newt Gingrich: Obama Golfs To Take His Mind Off Being An 'Incompetent' 'Radical'

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” talk show this week to weigh in on Republican victories in the midterm elections.

After host J.D. Hayworth, a former Arizona congressman, asked Gingrich how he “as a historian” sees Obama, Gingrich predictably launched into a tirade against President Obama’s policies, particularly the Affordable Care Act, and what he sees as the impending failure of the Democrats in the next election cycle. Gingrich blamed President Obama’s supposed mishandling of issues like Ebola and ISIS on the fact that the president is both radical and incompetent.

“I think he is the most radical president in American history. But what makes it fascinating is he is incompetent and radical,” he said. “You’re really running a big risk if you’re both incompetent and radical. I think in a lot of ways you’re seeing someone who is in over his head.”

His gross incompetence, Gingrich explains, is why Obama “goes and golfs because that way at least he doesn’t have to think about it.”

So, just as Obama is simultaneously a feeble, “apathetic” leader and a power-hungry “dictator,” he is brazenly implementing his radical policies while also so painfully incompetent that he can’t effectively implement those policies. Makes sense.

Pat Buchanan: Joni Ernst A 'Gal' With The 'Same Kind Of Attractiveness' As Sarah Palin

Democratic Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin drew criticism from right and left last week when he urged voters not to choose Joni Ernst, the Republican candidate to replace him, simply because she’s “really attractive” and “sounds nice.”

Conservative commentator Pat Buchanan apparently didn’t get the memo.

The former Republican presidential candidate dedicated a good portion of an interview with Newsmax today to gushing about how now Senator-elect Ernst is “a gal with a real sense of humor and a fighting spirit” and “has the same kind of attractiveness that Sarah Palin had at the start and that Michele Bachmann gained in the Iowa caucuses, being a very attractive, outspoken person, a woman in the GOP full of passion and full of hard-core philosophy.”
