Ann Coulter joined conservative radio host Eric Metaxas, a fellow Donald Trump fan, on his radio program yesterday, where the two criticized Never Trump conservatives such as Thomas Sowell, Erick Erickson, George Will and Charles Murray and warned that America will collapse if Trump doesn’t win the upcoming election.
Coulter said that Will and Murray may have refused to get behind Trump because they are atheists who care about the opinions of others rather than God’s opinion.
“They are both atheists,” she said. “I guess status matters. As I always say, the reason status doesn’t matter to Christians is we’re looking up. If you have nothing to look up to, if you’re not getting your standard from God, then you have to look around. It’s either lateral or horizontal or vertical. You’re looking around and it matters to you—the opinion of other people.”
Metaxas, for his part, said Will and Murray are out-of-touch, “hyper-preppy” elitists who find it too “embarrassing” to support for the self-proclaimed billionaire. “I think that a lot of the unwashed ‘boob-geoisie,’ the ‘deplorables,’ are going to vote for Trump,” he said, “but right now the media is pushing so hard in the other direction that I’m actually wondering for the first time whether it’s possible for Trump to win this election. And if he doesn’t win the election, then I think it’s a sign that we are done as a country.”
“It’s over,” Coulter said.
Earlier in the program, Metaxas asked if it was “possible” that Hillary Clinton was wearing a “battery pack or something” and an earpiece during the last week’s debate with Trump and “had people feeding her stuff.”
Coulter said she doubted Metaxas’ conspiracy theory, but then suggested that Clinton, due to poor health, “had a lot of pep pills before that debate so whatever that pack was, it could’ve had something to do with her health.”
“She is Tracy Flick in the election and oh she has all of her little facts and figures and deflections and talking points and I think she could’ve reeled off talking points for another hour,” she said. “She looked shockingly, surprisingly healthy.”
Metaxas then joked that Clinton might have been using heroin.
WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah wrote today that while he has felt the burden of persecution under President Obama, “I never once feared for my life because Obama was president.”
That will change, however, if Hillary Clinton is elected president, he said.
Farah claimed that Clinton critics in the 1990s experienced all forms of abuses: “Offices were broken into, some were harassed in their homes, pets were killed, threats were made, careers were ruined and some died under mysterious circumstances. The Clintons got away with it all. Therefore, we can be sure it will be worse if they are allowed back into power.”
“I don’t see how America could survive as anything remotely reminiscent of a self-governing free society,” he wrote. “If Hillary wins, we’re done.”
I’ve endured the inevitable Internal Revenue Service audits and watched in shock as Republicans did nothing to hold him accountable. In fact, I watched as they rolled over and authorized Obama to borrow and spend endlessly to his heart’s content.
But, during those eight years, I never once feared for my life because Obama was president.
Let me take you back to the 1990s and tell you what it was like being a dissident, a critic, a political adversary of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Yes, you could expect to be audited. But that was just the warning shot.
People like me who investigated and exposed the Clinton administration scandals could expect much, much worse.
Offices were broken into, some were harassed in their homes, pets were killed, threats were made, careers were ruined and some died under mysterious circumstances.
The Clintons got away with it all.
Therefore, we can be sure it will be worse if they are allowed back into power.
Expect a scorched-earth policy.
I don’t see how America could survive as anything remotely reminiscent of a self-governing free society.
If Hillary wins, we’re done.
Some of Trump’s whoppers were obviously false, while others required a bit more digging to disprove.
Here are just 20 lies that Trump told during his first debate against Hillary Clinton:
Lie #1: Denies making remarks about climate change.
Clinton: “Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it's real.”
Trump: “I did not—I do not say that.”
Trump has in fact said that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese:
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2012
Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2013
NBC News just called it the great freeze - coldest weather in years. Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 25, 2014
Lie #2: Denies his own proposal to negotiate down the debt.
Clinton: “You even went and suggested that you would try to negotiate down the national debt of the United States.”
Lie #3: Denies supporting the Iraq War.
“I did not support the war in Iraq.”
Trump expressed support for the invasion of Iraq before it took place and only said that he opposed the war after the conflict had started.
Lie #4: Denies calling pregnancy a business inconvenience.
Clinton: “This is a man who is called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers.”
Trump: “I never said that.”
In 2004, Trump said that pregnancy is “certainly an inconvenience for a business.”
Lie #5: Contradicts himself about his tax audit.
Trump: “I’m under a routine audit.”
Trump: “Look, I have been under audit almost for 15 years. I know a lot of wealthy people that have never been audited. I said, ‘Do you get audited ?’ I get audited almost every year. And in a way I should be complaining. I’m not even complaining. I don't mind them. It’s almost become a way of life. I get audited by the IRS. But other people don't.”
Trump has previously claimed that he is facing an audit, which he has used to justify his refusal to release his tax returns, because he’s “a strong Christian,” but his own lawyers say that the “continuous examination” of his returns is “consistent with the IRS’ practice for large and complex businesses.” Experts also point out that there is nothing preventing Trump from releasing his returns.
Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., said that his father was refusing to release his return because it would be a distraction from his campaign.
Lie #6: Falsely claims he already released key financial information.
“You will learn more about Donald Trump by going down to the federal elections where I filed a one hundred and four page, essentially financial statement of sorts, the forms that they have.”
As PolitiFact notes, this information leaves out essential information, including “details on his effective tax rate, the types of taxes he paid, and how much he gave to charity, as well as a more detailed picture of his income-producing assets.”
Lie #7: Falsely claims he only received a small loan from his father.
“My father gave me a very small loan in 1975.”
Trump has been regaling audiences with the tale that he received a “small loan of a million dollars” from his father, real estate mogul Fred Trump, when he first went into business. Far from an up-from-the-bootstraps success story, Trump regularly relied “on his father’s connections and wealth” in the form of “lucrative trusts” and “numerous loans and loan guarantees, as well as his father’s connections,” The Washington Post reports.
“As Trump’s casinos ran into trouble,” the Post reports, “Trump’s father also purchased $3.5 million gaming chips, but did not use them, so the casino would have enough cash to make payments on its mortgage—a transaction which casino authorities later said was an illegal loan.”
Indeed, loans Trump received from his father amounted to $14 million, “a value of $31 million in today’s dollars.”
Lie #8: Claims Clinton’s campaign, not Trump, started the birther movement.
“They were pressing it very hard, she failed to get the birth certificate. When I got involved, I didn't fail. I got him to give the birth certificate. So I'm satisfied with it, and I’ll tell you why I’m satisfied with it.”
There is no proof that anyone in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign pushed the birther conspiracy theory. Instead, Trump cited an interview with Clinton’s former campaign manager in which she said that the campaign fired a volunteer who forwarded a birther email. He also cited a conversation that Sidney Blumenthal, who had no formal role in Clinton’s campaign, had with a McClatchy reporter, but McClatchy “found no proof that Blumenthal questioned Obama’s birthplace.”
Lie #9: Misleadingly claims jobs are “fleeing” abroad.
“Our jobs are fleeing the country.”
Lie #10: Falsely claims China is devaluing their currency.
“You look at what China is doing to our country in terms of making our product, they're devaluing their currency and there's nobody in our government to fight them.”
In fact, China has of late been doing the opposite of devaluing its currency.
Ian Talley of The Wall Street Journal notes that while “few U.S. economists would disagree China kept the yuan undervalued over the last two decades,” now, “many economists—including some of the strongest advocates for action against Beijing s—say the yuan is now close to fair value. Beijing appreciated the yuan from 2005 to 2014…. In fact, over the last two years, Beijing burned through nearly a quarter of what was once a $4 trillion currency stockpile to prevent the yuan from falling against the dollar.”
Lie #11 : Baselessly claims the Federal Reserve is “doing political” by not increasing interest rates.
“This Janet Yellen of the Fed, the Fed is doing political by keeping interest rates at this level. And believe me the day Obama goes off and he leaves and he goes out to the golf course for the rest of his life to play golf, when they raise interest rates, you are going to see some very bad things happen because the Fed is not doing their job. The Fed is being more political than Secretary Clinton.”
The Federal Reserve is an independent institution and Trump has yet to offer any evidence that Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen is taking her cues from President Obama, a claim that he has been making for weeks.
Lie #12 : Absurdly claims Clinton has fought ISIS for decades.
“No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.”
ISIS was created out of the Islamic State of Iraq, which was founded in 2006, and was in turn the descendent of Al Qaeda in Iraq, established in 2004. Hillary Clinton is 68 years old and graduated from college in 1969.
Lie #13 : Claims other countries don’t pay us for military defense.
“We defend Germany. We defend South Korea. We defend Saudi Arabia. We defend countries. They do not pay us what they should be paying us because we are providing tremendous service and we’re losing a fortune.”
The U.S. is hardly “losing a fortune” in military aid.
Lie #14 : Falsely claims NATO allies aren’t paying the U.S.
Trump: “We pay approximately 73 percent of the cost of NATO.”
Lie #15: Falsely claims the U.S. paid Iran $400 million.
“One of the great giveaways of all time, of all time, including four hundred million dollars in cash nobody’s ever seen that before that turned out to be wrong.”
As the New York Times notes, the money Trump referenced “was Iran’s money, for military goods never delivered to Iran after the Iranian Revolution.”
Lie #16: Absurdly suggests America is experiencing a crime wave.
“We have a situation where we have our inner cities, African-American, Hispanics, are living in hell because it's so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot. In Chicago, they’ve had thousands of shootings, thousands, since January first. Thousands of shootings. And I’m saying where is this? Is this a war-torn countr y?”
Far from a crime wave, FactCheck.org points out that the violent crime rate “is lower than it has been since 1970” and “the murder and nonnegligent manslaughter rate nationwide, at 4.5 in 2014, was at its lowest point since at least the early 1960s.”
Lie #17: Baselessly says stop and frisk “worked very well” in New York.
“You do stop and frisk, which worked very well—Mayor Giuliani is here — worked very well in New York.”
Katherine Krueger of TPM writes that a “2013 report from the New York attorney general found that out of 2.4 million stops by police between 2009 and 2012, the stops resulted in a 3 percent conviction rate, and just 0.1 percent of the total stops went on to a violent crime conviction.” Other cities that did not use stop and frisk experienced similar dips in crime, and one study, according to the Washington Post , “found that a high rate of stop-and-frisks was not associated with reduced crime when the practice was indiscriminate.” New York City’s crime rate continued to fall after stop-and-frisk was ended.
Lie #18: Falsely claims the murder rate in New York went up after the end of stop and frisk.
Clinton: “Well, it's also fair to say, if we’re going to talk about mayors, that under the current mayor crime has continued to drop, including murders. So there is—“
Trump: “You're wrong.”
Clinton: “No, I'm not.”
Trump: “Murders are up.”
Trump is wrong: Homicides in New York have been on the decline.
Lie #19: Falsely claims stop and frisk wasn’t ruled unconstitutional.
Lester Holt: “Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men.”
Trump: “No, you're wrong. It went before a judge who was a very against-police judge. It was taken away from her and our mayor, our new mayor, refused to go forward with the case. They would have won an appeal.”
Trump is wrong: Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in 2013 .
Lie #20: Falsely claims ICE endorsed him.
“I was is endorsed by ICE. They’ve never endorsed anybody before — on immigration. I was just endorsed by ICE.”
ICE is a federal agency and has not endorsed Trump, or any other candidate for that matter.
Michael Savage spoke with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg today about Hillary Clinton’s health, saying that Clinton is “like an old nag on a racetrack” and may not “make it to the finish line.”
Malzberg said that in a recent a video message to a labor union summit, Clinton “looked awful” and was “shouting.” Savage, a far-right radio host who has earned Donald Trump’s praise, diagnosed Clinton with “neurological problems” and said that “she shouldn’t be running for the office but she’s a power-mad woman.”
“She’ll run until the worst possibility could occur,” he said. “There’s a lot of people saying she’s not making it to the finish line. She’s like an old nag on a racetrack who people are saying cannot complete the last few laps of that track. Donald, on the other hand, from a lifetime of meatloaf and mayonnaise, apparently is getting stronger as he goes on.”
Last week, Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas, appeared on “The Sam Malone Show,” where he warned that “if Mrs. Clinton becomes our president, we’ll be surrendering to ISIS within a year.”
Olson said that Trump was rising in the polls despite the recent coverage of his birther conspiracy theory, which Olson criticized as a media-manufactured distraction.
“People are getting his message about less government, lower taxes, strong defense,” he said. “I mean, the defense thing’s huge. I mean, if Mrs. Clinton becomes our president, we’ll be surrendering to ISIS within a year. Hey, Israel, you’ve gone bye-bye. Palestine, you’ve got your nation. Hey North Korea, go crazy.”
In response to Hillary Clinton’s speech at Temple University and her Mic.com piece reaching out to millennial voters, People For the American Way Press Secretary Laura Epstein released the following statement:
“During Hillary Clinton’s speech today, she outlined why she’ll be a strong advocate for millennials in the White House: She detailed her plans to make higher education more affordable, ensure women receive equal pay for equal work, and enact policies to support working families, like paid family leave and affordable child care. It’s Clinton’s stance on these issues, not Donald Trump’s campaign of racism and bigotry, that millennials will show up for at the ballot box. We’ll support Hillary Clinton because she embraces immigrants instead of pushing mass deportation, and she understands the importance of combatting racism, not enflaming it.
“And as Hillary Clinton has made clear, this election will dramatically affect our generation’s future because of the Supreme Court. While Trump has promised Supreme Court justices who’d overturn abortion rights and reject LGBT rights, Hillary Clinton will appoint justices who will protect fundamental Constitutional rights for all Americans, including protecting Americans’ right to vote over the right of billionaires to buy elections. The next President could nominate up to four Supreme Court justices, and that stark contrast between Clinton and Trump is a big reason why millennials will reject Trump’s campaign of hate and turn out to vote for Hillary Clinton.”
People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.
Citing videos he viewed on the internet, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles on Friday suggested that Hillary Clinton is faking her campaign stops, claiming that in videos of the events, the images that appear on the attendees’ smartphones are not images of the rallies.
“She’s nowhere to be seen, the flags are not there, you can’t even distinguish what they are looking at, it’s nowhere to be seen on the stage,” he said. “Are they faking her personal appearances?”
Wiles also alleged that Clinton’s campaign sent out a body double to speak to the press outside of her daughter’s apartment after she had fallen ill at a September 11 memorial event: “I personally think it was a double. I don’t think Hillary passed out on the curb and then an hour or two later was walking around smiling and grinning. That just doesn’t happen in normal life.”
On Sunday, Hillary Clinton stumbled after leaving a 9/11 memorial service and her campaign later announced that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia days earlier.
Yesterday, far-right radio host Michael Savage suggested that “maybe it was God’s hand, the slip and fall.”
Savage said that perhaps “the burden of lies and hatred” finally caught up to Clinton and “the toxins of her vile opinion of most decent Americans overloaded her.”
Televangelist Jim Bakker said today that God could deliver the presidency to Hillary Clinton as a sign that he is judging America with “immature leadership.”
“God says, ‘I’m God and if I choose Trump he’ll be elected and if I choose Hillary—’ and I’ll tell you what, God could allow Hillary to be elected because God sends judgment to a nation by giving them what the Bible says is immature leadership,” Bakker said.
Bakker added that “without a miracle in America,” Donald Trump is “going to be the closest thing probably to a Christian that America would ever elect. It’s over, people.”
Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson seized on the right-wing meme that Hillary Clinton is covering up major health issues, citing a photo he saw on the Drudge Report of Clinton nearly slipping on icy steps, which is apparently proof that she’s “got some neurological impairment.”
“She’s asking Trump to show his tax returns, and they’re going to be saying, ‘You better show your medical returns,’” he said, pointing to the fact that Clinton was photographed holding a railing while walking up stairs.
“I don’t know if it’s true or not,” he added.
Robertson even wondered if Vice President Biden will have to step in because Clinton’s supposedly flagging health may cause her to withdraw from the race.
Far-right radio host Michael Savage interviewed Donald Trump yesterday, repeatedly hailing the GOP presidential nominee for embracing many of the ideas that he has promoted over the years.
Savage, a longtime Trump cheerleader, spent the rest of the broadcast attacking Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, and was particularly upset about recent remarks Kaine made at the National Progressive Baptist Convention.
Kaine, while talking about his experience as a member of a predominantly black church, said that white people have “got to put ourselves in situations where we’re in the minority and come to understand a reality that’s different than the one that we just take for granted every day” because “if you’re in a majority, you can go through your whole life and not have to learn the ways of anybody other than you.”
“And one of the beautiful things that has been transformational about my church is that by being there, I’ve had to grapple with, understand, listen to, learn from, confront realities that are not necessarily the ones that were my own but over time have become more a part of me,” Kaine added.
A number of conservative outlets distorted Kaine’s remarks and falsely reported that the Democratic vice presidential nominee demanded that white people literally become a minority group in the U.S.
Savage, explaining that he found the clip on Alex Jones’ website InfoWars, claimed that “this weirdo, Kaine, Kaine, Kaine, Kaine, the Caine Mutiny Court Martial” said “that whites must become a minority to atone for racism.”
Complaining about Kaine’s “squeaky voice,” Savage said: “This guy is a vampire. He is a vampire who hates his own race. He is a vampire who wants to enslave you by turning you into a minority in your own country. Is that who you want in the White House? I don’t.”
While speaking with a caller, Savage explained that when he and others, such as Donald Trump, talk about “the forgotten people,” he means “the white people,” “the white family that is targeted by Hillary Clinton and Kaine, who says that you have to become a minority in your own country to know what they’re suffering.”
“It’s a matter of survival,” he said, before adding: “There’s a war coming in this country. They’re not taking my gun and they’re not taking any more of my money. I’ve had enough of this crap and I don’t think I’m alone. I think that Donald Trump represents the last great savior of western civilization. Let me be very clear, there’s a battle for western civilization going on now. You’ve got world civilization, you’ve got Islamic supremacy and you’ve got those attacking white people around the globe.”
During a discussion about how ISIS imposes the discriminatory jizya tax on Christians in its territory, King interjected to claim that Clinton “said basically, Christians and religious people in America need to set aside their religious beliefs and serve secular humanism, and in that point she was saying abortion or the thing with ISIS, and she really has said that we are going to have to learn in America to set aside our religious beliefs. And so I was saying, what she’s really saying is, usher in the Antichrist. She actually did say that.”
Clinton, of course, actually did not say that.
Here is the excerpt of the speech that King referenced:
Yes, we've nearly closed the global gender gap in primary school, but secondary school remains out of reach for so many girls around the world. Yes, we've increased the number of countries prohibiting domestic violence, but still more than half the nations in the world have no such laws on the books, and an estimated one in three women still experience violence. Yes, we've cut the mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth.
All the laws we've passed don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.
As I have said, and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the twenty-first century, and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States."
Conservative talk show host Michael Savage said yesterday that he finds Hillary Clinton’s voice to be “very offensive,” expressing dismay at her “grating,” “hard voice.”
“What do you fear most about a Hillary presidency, other than hearing her grating voice for eight years?” he asked. “That’s the part I can’t take, it’s listening to her, that hard voice. It’s not that it scares me, it offends me deeply. I find it very offensive.”
He added: “I don’t like women who are not feminine. I don’t like hard women who are like men without, let’s put it this way, men without pants.”
Savage, a close ally of Donald Trump, said he doesn’t understand “why women are so excited about, ‘Oh she’s the first woman.’ In what sense is she the first woman president? What does that matter?”
While speaking to a caller, Dan, who said that he was also fearful of “listening to that shrill voice for the next eight years” along with Clinton’s “lust for absolute power,” Savage said that Clinton “will continue to attack the white male portion of the population” and “has a vendetta for white males.”
Clinton, according to Savage, plans on “importing” new voters and believes, “Give us all the minorities, give us all the gays, give us all the immigrants because eventually we will win by demographics. How can any white male ever vote for a Democrat? I’ll never understand. I don’t understand it because they’re digging their own grave.”
Savage said he was particularly afraid of Clinton bringing in criminal, indolent, “uneducated” and “diseased” immigrants “because they’re born Democrat voters.”
“They’re not coming here to work, they’re not coming here to be Americans, they’re not coming here to learn English, they’re not coming here to learn the Star-Spangled Banner, why do we need them?” he continued.
“Trump says he’ll build the wall and close the borders, she says she’ll open the borders even further until you are a minority in your own country,” he said. “Think about it before you vote.”
In her WorldNetDaily column yesterday, Linda Harvey of Mission America warned that electing Hillary Clinton as president “will be a stab at the heart of this once-great nation,” predicting that the country will “bleed to death on her watch” and people will be thrown in jail for expressing “Christian views on homosexual behavior.”
Other countries should also fear a Clinton presidency, Harvey said, as she would promote “the diabolical cause of normalizing homosexual conduct worldwide.”
“Fascism continued and extended under a modern-day Jezebel,” she said. “America can do far better than Hillary. Please, if you claim to love the Lord Jesus, do not help elect this corrupt woman.”
Everything in Hillary Clinton’s track record screams the opposite: arrogance, lawlessness, bald-faced deception, alliance with sexual depravity, injustice, greed, unaccountability, godlessness, treason.
The white suit worn during her DNC acceptance speech cannot hide the bloodstains in Hillary’s life. As with Lady Macbeth, those stains are increasingly difficult to wash off.
Hillary’s election as president will be a stab at the heart of this once-great nation. We may bleed to death on her watch, but she either won’t see or won’t care.
In Hillary’s upside-down ethical world, sodomy and gender rebellion are “human rights.” Our children will be further corrupted as Hillary twists the notion U.S. civil rights law into including male/male or female/female sexual behavior, and ramps up the Obama pressure on public schools to deceive children with deviant “LGBTQ” propaganda. Her Departments of Education and Justice are likely to continue the phony interpretation of Title IX allowing privacy-free, open sex bathrooms.
But this deviance-fest won’t end at the U.S border. Under Hillary’s tenure as secretary of state, a State Department fund was set up to finance the diabolical cause of normalizing homosexual conduct worldwide, even in nations with strong cultural or religious objections. Diplomatic pressure has been exerted, and U.S. aid has been withheld, depending on a nation’s accommodation of this goal. As president, she will accelerate this coercion, and as the DNC platform states, “We will continue to stand with LGBT people around the world, including fighting efforts by any nation to infringe on LGBT rights or ignore abuse.”
Let’s all remember that the liberal definition of “abuse” includes verbal objections – free speech – by private citizens about homosexual behavior. The left, now led by Hillary, is committed to silencing the opposition. Christians, who learn through Scripture that homosexuality is an abomination and no human needs to engage in this conduct, must recognize what’s unfolding here.
Even in America, people who express Christian views on homosexual behavior are now being jailed. Just ask Kim Davis.
So there you have it. Fascism continued and extended under a modern-day Jezebel. America can do far better than Hillary.
Please, if you claim to love the Lord Jesus, do not help elect this corrupt woman.
Last Saturday, Michele Bachmann appeared on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” where she declared that Hillary Clinton “has innocent blood on her hands” because of her handling of the 2012 Benghazi attack.
“She’s a dangerous woman with bad ideas,” she said.
Bachmann also took issue with the release of another congressional report clearing Clinton of wrongdoing in the incident, blaming the media for not getting tough on the presumptive Democratic nominee: “It’s sick. The media is treasonous in this country. They are part of the treasonous process. I’m sick of the media, like I’m sure most of your audience is. They’re lying, they’re dishonest. Trump’s exactly right about that.”
The former Minnesota congresswoman said that Clinton is trying to “keep Christians at home” on Election Day, arguing that past GOP presidential candidates like Mitt Romney and John McCain only lost because they weren’t true conservatives who failed to inspire a large Christian turnout. (Bachmann’s sixth-place finish in the 2012 Iowa caucus seems to undermine her theory that only far-right candidates can win major elections).
Bachmann said that Clinton is “the most godless woman” in politics who “should’ve been doing time,” before lamenting that America is under God’s judgment.
For eight years, Republicans have tried to delegitimize Barack Obama’s presidency, falsely claiming that Obama was born abroad and therefore ineligible to be president and that he only won two consecutive elections thanks to massive vote fraud.
This concerted disinformation campaign worked: Polls have shown that most Republican voters believe that the now defunct liberal group ACORN stole both elections for Obama and that the president was born outside of the U.S.
Donald Trump, now the GOP’s nominee for president, helped push these myths that paint the president as an illegal usurper who should have never been allowed to take office, while congressional Republicans have refused to treat Obama as a legitimate president.
Now, the GOP is determined to delegitimize a potential Hillary Clinton presidency, declaring that she would be serving time in jail if it weren't for a grand conspiracy between her campaign, the FBI and the Justice Department.
At last night’s meeting of the Republican National Convention, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie whipped the crowd into a frenzy as the audience repeatedly declared Clinton “guilty” of numerous crimes — including acting as “an apologist for an Al Qaeda affiliate” and negotiating “the worst nuclear arms deal in American history” — and shouted “Lock her up!”
Christie’s speech resembled a show trial more than a typical political address, promoting the message that has been propagated by Trump himself that Clinton should be in prison rather than running for president.
Ben Carson, who spoke later that evening, was more than happy to see that Christie transported Quicken Loans Arena to colonial Salem. The former presidential candidate once again attempted to connect Clinton to devil-worship because of her ties to the late activist and right-wing bogeyman Saul Alinsky:
One of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky. Her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. Now, interestingly enough, let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. He wrote a book called “Rules For Radicals”.
On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom. Now think about that. This is a nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. This is a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are “one nation, under God”. This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says “In God We Trust”. So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer? Think about that.
The secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation. If we continue to allow them to take God out of our lives, God will remove himself from us, we will not be blessed and our nation will go down the tubes and we will be responsible for that. We don’t want that to happen.
Clinton did in fact meet and exchange letters with Alinsky as a college student and even wrote a dissertation about his political ideas. But as the New York Times points out, while Clinton “endorsed Mr. Alinsky’s central critique of government antipoverty programs — that they tended to be too top-down and removed from the wishes of individuals,” she wanted to seek “change within the system” rather than through the outside agitation tactics championed by Alinsky.
And the relationship wasn’t exactly a secret: Clinton wrote about her time — and disagreements — with Alinsky in “Living History.”
On top of all of that, Alinsky’s ode to Lucifer was obviously not a call for Satanism but rather a figurative flourish, not that such a defense would stand up in a witch hunt.
As author Salman Rushdie noted, we shouldn’t “expect Ben Carson to recognize irony or humor.”

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann warned on Saturday that the election of Hillary Clinton to the presidency would usher in the complete destruction of America, unless God uses Donald Trump to save the country.
In an interview with End Times broadcaster Jan Markell, the Minnesota Republican lauded Trump’s “1950s sensibilities,” “churched background” and vow to “only appoint pro-life judges.”
“He gets and understands religious liberty,” Bachmann said, noting that Trump discussed the so-called War on Christmas at a recent meeting with evangelical leaders in New York. “He even said, ‘I don’t understand,’ he said, ‘When I was growing up everybody said Merry Christmas. Even my Jews would say Merry Christmas.’”
Markell also warned of the dangers of Clinton presidency: “The Titanic is three-fourths under water right now. You get another four years, another eight years of this progressivism, of this infatuation with Islam and caving to all things Islam, of the LGBT community rammed down our throats, rammed down the throats of the churches, and that’s going to intensify a thousand times more with a Hillary Clinton administration.”
Bachmann, a member of Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, said conservatives who stay home on Election Day rather than vote for Trump will “ensure that we will lose the United States of America; they will ensure it. They will ensure that every godless principle there is comes into this country.”
Clinton, according to Bachmann, will be “pro-Islam” and “bring us into a certain destruction for the United States.”
She then wondered if God elevated Trump to succeed in the Republican presidential primary because he was capable of beating Clinton in November: “When it comes down to it, Trump may have been the only candidate who could actually defeat Hillary. What I kept thinking to, Jan, was the Book of Daniel, and the Book of the Daniel, the essence of the book, was that the most high God lifts up who he will and takes down who he will.”
Bachmann called on members of the Never Trump movement, such as conservative radio host Mark Levin, to change their minds, warning that a Clinton presidency would do away with America for good by changing the country’s demographics.
Democrats, Bachmann said, are “allowing well over a million people from the Third World to flood into our country, bringing in diseases, people who are criminals, rapists, all the rest.”
She then repeated her false claim that President Obama gave millions of undocumented immigrants the right to vote in the run-up to the 2012 election. These immigrants, she continued, “are going to be voting to transform the United States into, like, a Third World country.”
