Janet Porter's Helpful Advice To Target

Religious Right activist Janet Porter took to WorldNetDaily yesterday to hail those organizing a boycott of Target over its nondiscrimination policy, which she called “an invitation to predators” to enter and film inside changing rooms.

Porter, who said that her group, Faith 2 Action, will be leading protests outside of Target locations, cited the findings of the tiny and extremist American College of Pediatricians, a fringe group that should not be confused with the American Association of Pediatrics, the country’s leading pediatric group and a supporter of trans rights.

Target, she joked, should consider having “an ‘Anorexic Department’ where they mark size ‘0’ clothes as XXL so as to accommodate the very thin who ‘identify’ as very fat,” complete with “distorted fun-house mirrors,” if they still want to accommodate “cross dressers.”

When you issue an invitation to predators to walk into women’s private dressing rooms and restrooms, don’t be surprised when they accept.

Less than three weeks after Target’s open-door policy, a man walked into the ladies’ changing room with his camera phone and video-recorded an underage girl trying on clothes. When he is done uploading all that footage onto the Internet, he can always go back to Target for more.

How many more women is Target going to allow to be victimized before they change their insane policy that puts women and young girls at risk?

It’s crazy – literally. Target is putting its female customers at risk for a fraction of a percentage of the population who have a certified mental disorder.



If Target wants build its policies to accommodate those with mental disorders, perhaps they should also have an “Anorexic Department” where they mark size “0” clothes as XXL so as to accommodate the very thin who “identify” as very fat. Installing distorted fun-house mirrors could help ensure that the anorexic’s appearance matches her distorted identity. That would be stupid. But their current policy is more than stupid – it is dangerous because it lets predators, peeping Toms and the more than 800,000 registered sex offenders walk into the bathroom and fitting rooms right along with the cross dressers.



There’s a reason why the American College of Pediatricians call endorsing gender confusion “child abuse” – going along with their game of pretend actually harms them. Just as letting men – including predators – into women’s private facilities invites harm.

For A Third Time, Janet Porter Claims Her Prayers 'Changed The Results' Of The 2000 Election

During a campaign stop for her ill-fated run for a seat in the Ohio state legislature last month, right-wing activist Janet Porter insisted, for a third time, that her prayers flipped the results of the 2000 presidential election and handed the presidency to George W. Bush.

Porter explained that she had faith in God that her campaign for office could succeed because she had seen God work miracles before, like when He reversed the results in Florida in response to her prayers.

"2000 election. It was Al Gore vs. George W. Bush," she stated. "I was in Broward County, Florida, at the time and I prayed a ridiculous prayer. Did you ever pray a sun-stopping prayer?"

"I was part of the recount team in 2000 and on election night, they declared the election for Al Gore," she explained. "I got down on my knees — Right Wing Watch says that I'm the one responsible, but there were a lot of people who prayed — but I got on my knees and I said, 'God, I'm asking for something that has never been done before, I'm asking you' — it's ridiculous, it sounded ridiculous, it was hard to even form in my mouth, but I said, 'God I'm asking you to change the results of this election.' That's what I prayed. And God changed the results of that election."

Radical Right-Wing Activist Janet Porter Loses Her Bid For Office In Ohio

After years of failing to get the Ohio legislature to pass a radical piece of anti-abortion legislation that she had drafted, long-time Religious Right activist Janet Porter announced back in December that she was running for a seat in the Ohio state senate. 

Since 2011, Porter had been pressuring the Ohio legislature to pass the "Heartbeat Bill," which would outlaw abortion at the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected, without success. Finally, after years of frustration, Porter decided to take matters into her own hands by launching a primary challenge to Republican state senator Larry Obhof.

Thanks to her many years of radical right-wing activism, Porter was able to rack up endorsements from the likes of James Dobson, Mat Staver, Larry Pratt, Mike Huckabee, Phyllis Schlafly, Jerry Boykin, Gordon Klingenschmitt and Troy Newman. At one point, Porter even campaigned on the fact that she was one of the "most-watched" right-wing activists on this very blog: 

Janet is the Left-Wing’s second “most-watched” woman in America, according to “Right Wing Watch," a group dedicated to “monitoring and exposing the activities of the right-wing movement.” The enemies of life and liberty are watching, and they only watch those whom they consider to be a threat. The highest ranking woman is former congresswoman and presidential candidate, Michele Bachmann with 588 “reports,” Janet at 448, and Governor Sarah Palin with 376.

She even wore this fact as a badge of honor in a campaign ad:

Over the weekend, Porter asked her supporters to engage in three days of prayer and fasting ahead of last night's Ohio primary, but it looks like it didn't do much good, as she was soundly defeated by the incumbent:

Mike Huckabee Returns The Favor, Endorses Janet Porter For State Senate In Ohio

Back before he dropped out of the presidential race, Mike Huckabee spent an a lot of time blasting the Religious Right for failing to support his campaign as most of the movement leaders lined up behind Ted Cruz, while he was reduced to scrounging up endorsements from fringe candidates like Janet Porter.

Porter has long been an ardent Huckabee supporter, so it was no surprise to see Huckabee eagerly welcome her support, despite her radical views and long history of promoting bizarre conspiracy theories, ranging from warning that President Obama would orchestrate food shortages to starve conservatives to death to speculating that Obama would use swine flu fears as an excuse to lock conservatives up in prison camps.

She also released an insane anti-gay movie last year in which Huckabee was prominently featured.

Porter, of course, is currently running her own campaign for elected office in Ohio and Huckabee has now returned the favor by releasing a video endorsing her bid for a seat in the state senate:

Requiring women to register for the draft is to forcibly put our daughters in harm's way against their will."

It’s time to run for office and finish the job the establishment incumbents refuse to do. And once we’re elected, we’re going to end abortion. For real."

Supreme Court Rejects Attempt At Restrictive Six-Week Abortion Ban

There has long been a debate raging within the anti-abortion movement between those who have mapped out a careful strategy to slowly chip away at Roe v. Wade through incremental restrictions on abortion and those who want to launch legal broadsides against abortion rights in the hopes that one will take Roe down once and for all.

The incrementalists will have their big day in court on March 2, when the Supreme Court hears arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole, a challenge to a set of laws in Texas that seeks to cut off access to legal abortion even as the procedure remains legal. Whole Woman’s Health is the culmination of a decades-long strategy by groups like Americans United for Life to choke off abortion access by creating unnecessary regulations on clinics. These groups are also hoping to get the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe in the form of laws banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, just before when the court has said that abortion bans are legal.

But those who want to find a silver bullet to end abortion rights completely just had a day in court too … and it didn’t go well for them.

The Supreme Court today declined to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling that struck down North Dakota’s “fetal heartbeat” law, which would have banned abortion at about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women even know that they are pregnant. The law was clearly unconstitutional — one prominent anti-choice lawyer has called such efforts “futile” — but North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said that it was an “attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade.”

The boundaries of Roe v. Wade, it turns out, however much they may be weakened by incremental restrictions, still prevent banning almost all abortions.

Yet today’s rejection is unlikely to halt the efforts of “heartbeat bill” crusaders, the most prominent of whom is Religious Right activist Janet Porter, who is currently running for the legislature in her home state of Ohio in an effort to push such a bill through.

Mike Huckabee Touts Endorsements From Anti-Gay Extremists And End Times Fanatics

Just last week, Mike Huckabee was burning bridges with many Religious Right leaders by accusing them of being a bunch of sell-outs and frauds who don't really want to see an end to legal abortion and gay marriage and of having insufficient faith in God, all because they are not backing his presidential campaign. 

But apparently there are still a handful of Religious Right activists who have the virtue and moral fortitude to stand with Huckabee, despite his poor poll numbers, and endorse his candidacy, as reported by CBN's David Brody today:

It’s Iowa or bust for Mike Huckabee and with just a few weeks to go before the big Iowa Caucus, he’s trotting out some key endorsements from notable pro-family conservatives. The Brody File has the exclusive.

Among the group endorsing Huckabee are Dr. Tim LaHaye, minister and author of the New York Times best-selling Left Behind book series; Dr. Jim Garlow, Senior Pastor of SkyLine Church;” Art Ally, founder and president of Timothy Plan, America’s first pro-life and pro-family mutual fund company; Dr. Eric M. Wallace, President & Co-Founder of Freedom’s Journal Institute and Janet Folger Porter, Founder and President Faith2Action. It’s a solid list. 

Religious Right activist Tim LaHaye, of course, is the author of the Left Behind series and an End Times fanatic who has warned that President Obama is trying to destroy America and, as he told Huckabee, is bringing about the Armageddon:

Jim Garlow is an anti-gay activist who played a key role in the passage of California's Proposition 8. He has warned that gay marriage is a "demonic" and satanic force that will destroy America and force Christians underground where they will form a resistance movement in order to save America from the tyranny that is sweeping the nation. He has repeatedly declared that he is willing to die fighting against gay marriage:

Janet Porter, who has long been a vocal supporter of Huckabee's, is also a longtime radical right-wing activist who is now running for a seat in the Ohio state senate. An avowed conspiracy theorist, Porter has spent years warning that Obama would orchestrate food shortages in order to starve conservatives to death while using a swine flu outbreak as an excuse to lock them up in concentration camps. She has also suggested that Obama was raised by Soviet agents since he was a child, would personally negotiate with Osama bin Laden and make sure that people are denied "lifesaving treatment" based on "their political views."

Fortunately for Huckabee, Porter has repeatedly claimed that her prayers put George W. Bush in the White House.

When she is not praying that God will give conservative Christians control over the government and the media, Porter has been busy warning that increasing acceptance of gay rights will turn Christians into criminals who will eventually be rounded up and tossed in jail. This culminated in an anti-gay film she recently produced called "Light Wins" that featured none other than Mike Huckabee, along with several  Republican members of Congress and anti-gay activists who warned that gay activists are "grooming" and endangering children, for which they should be held criminally liable. Huckabee told viewers that gay equality is putting the freedom of religion and speech in jeopardy, which Porter portrayed as a nationwide conflagration:
