Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 11/5/15

  • Liberty University is reportedly a front-runner to host a Republican presidential debate in January.
  • Anti-gay megadonor Sean Fieler finds a friend in Ted Cruz.
  • Rick Joyner says that if he had to vote today, he'd vote for Donald Trump.
  • Gee, what a surprise! Several of the GOP candidates whom Glenn Beck really likes are quite eager to have his network host a debate.
  • Chuck Baldwin warns conservatives to beware of Marco Rubio because he is the "globalist insiders' water boy."
  • Finally, the Family Research Council prays that God will forgive us for Obamacare: "May God forgive His people for too quietly standing by and allowing Congress to approve a plan sold by strong-arm tactics and shameless deception, plan filled with the shedding of innocent blood, and built upon theory that departs from biblical truth and principles of American liberty that set us on a road to possibly irreversible socialism. May God have mercy and grant us repentance. May we elect a president and Congress in 2016 that meet his qualifications (Ex 18:21); that they will unite to overturn ObamaCare and replace it with a system based upon individual liberty and the free market. May we not add to our sin of complacency, rather, may Christians arise to be salt and light in the electoral process. Instead of a 25% Christian voter turnout, may we cast deciding votes for men and women across America who, under God, will set us on a course God can bless!" 

Rick Joyner: Impeach The Supreme Court And Remove From Office Anyone Who Refuses To Impeach The Supreme Court

Rick Joyner sent out a dire missive to his Oak Initiative email list today, declaring that America's "spiritual and moral deterioration" has become so great that we have now begun a "national meltdown into madness" that can only end with God's brutal judgment falling upon this nation.

Fuming that Planned Parenthood has not been shut down and its leader prosecuted for the organization's "heinous crimes," Joyner likened America to Nazi Germany:

Once you lose the core moral foundation of the value of life, evil will come pouring through the floodgates just as we saw happen in Germany in the 1930s.

Of course, the guilty protest any comparison to the Nazis, but if we do not learn where certain paths lead from historical examples, then we have learned nothing from that history and will go down the same path. The Nazis moved fast from abortion to the weak, retarded, and elderly who could no longer work, dubbing them “the useless eaters.” From there it was a small jump to political opponents, and ultimately, to condemning almost anyone for anything. The same paths lead to the same place ...  America has now become a sick society. At the rate we are melting down, we will soon be one of the sickest and perverted of all time. This is a main reason Islamists call America “The Great Satan.” They believe we have become so perverse that there is no alternative but to destroy us in order to rid the earth of this evil. Over the last few decades we seem to be intent on proving this verdict. 

After voicing his outrage that our "State Department has implemented a foreign policy of threatening nations to adopt the LGBT agenda if they want to continue getting aid from us," Joyner praised the "courageous leaders like those in Africa who told our leaders to keep their money and their perversion far away from them" and then demanded the impeachment of the Supreme Court justices who wrote the decision striking down state gay marriage bans, as well as the removal from office of any members of Congress who refuse to impeach them:

In general, Christians don’t expect non-believers to live according to biblical morals, and they want all American citizens to have their rights protected. There are some extremists in every group, but Christians do not want to impose their morals on others. However, neither do they want what they consider to be immorality imposed on them. The recent Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage did just that, even though its most serious violation of America was about much more. It was an unconstitutional decision, and if allowed to stand, brings into question whether we are still a Constitutional Republic, or a nation of laws.

The Constitution is clear that any authority not specifically given to the Federal Government is reserved to the states and the people. Nowhere is the Federal Government given authority to impose such a social agenda. Many Americans seem to assume that because the Federal Government is bigger, it has authority over the states. The opposite is actually true if we are still basing our government on the Constitution. The states have authority over the Federal Government in everything that is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution as being given to the Federal Government. Any other authority it takes does not have legal legitimacy.

Thomas Jefferson’s loudest and most vehement warnings were about “judicial tyranny,” which he warned would become exactly like what the Supreme Court, and many of the Federal Courts, are now imposing on America. These rulings are unlawful and unconstitutional. The justices that blatantly violated their oath to defend the Constitution by voting for something like this should be impeached.

California’s vote for Proposition Eight in 2008 was the constitutional way to handle such issues—by the states and by the people. A state does have the right to have same-sex marriage or not. The State of California, and the people, decided how they wanted this issue settled in their state. They voted not to have same-sex marriage. A single Federal Court judge, who was himself exposed as being a practicing homosexual at the time of his decision, overturned the will of millions of people and the State of California. That is what Jefferson called “judicial tyranny.” It is unlawful and unconstitutional.

This judge should have certainly been impeached for such a violation of the Constitution, but no one did a thing because we do not have leaders who keep their oath of office. Those who did nothing should be impeached as well for not obeying their oath to defend the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic.

So should the President and his previous Attorney General be impeached for saying that they would not enforce laws they did not agree with because they took an oath to uphold the laws of the land? Absolutely. Their brazen contempt for the Constitution and the laws that were lawfully passed by Congress and signed by a President was a blatant violation of their oath of office, and so they should have been removed from office.

Not to defend the laws and the Constitution only releases further lawlessness in the land. So, those who did nothing in the face of this are just as guilty. If the President does not have to obey laws he does not agree with, why should anyone else?

So what can we do? It is up to the people, the ultimate authority, to impeach those who violate their oaths of office, to remove them from office, and indict those who have so betrayed their country.

With the same-sex marriage decision, our Supreme Court has released into the land that those who hold to what have been the moral standards accepted by every nation, religion, and civilization in history can be attacked as “haters.” We already have examples of those who have lost their livelihoods for refusing to violate their conscience by serving what they believe to be immoral. The next step will be to see them prosecuted for “hate crimes,” as is already happening in Europe.

Rick Joyner: 'Donald Trump May Be One Of The Most Humble Of The Candidates'

On his "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program earlier this week, Rick Joyner continued to suggest that Donald Trump might be the candidate who God is raising up to save this nation because he is the only candidate who is "humble" enough.

Citing Trump's recent meeting with a group of fringe and extremist Christian leaders, Joyner declared that the GOP presidential hopeful demonstrated that he was "teachable" and "humble" and "incredibly respectful" at that participants left the meeting "amazed at his humility."

"I don't think there is anyone that we could elect to the presidency," Joyner said, "that is going to fix the mess we're in right now. They really are beyond human remedy, we need the favor of God. And God gives His grace to the humble ... I'm wondering if Donald Trump may be one of the most humble of the candidates."

Rick Joyner: I Prayed For Drought To Strike California

During a “Prophetic Conference” that was broadcast last month on “The Jim Bakker Show,” televangelist Rick Joyner said that he was praying for drought in California, explaining that God had told him that California would soon face destruction — he has been predicting an “imminent” earthquake since 2011 — and therefore an event like a drought would convince people to leave before the state turns into ruins.

“I started praying for things like a drought to come upon California so it would force them out, they would have to start leaving and things like that,” Joyner said. “It’s time to get out.”

However, Joyner also said that God is telling certain people to stay in California to help others when calamity strikes.

Todd Bentley Claims To Have Brought 35 People Back From The Dead

On Friday night, we spotted a tweet from Rick Joyner's MorningStar Ministries, alerting us to the fact that Todd Bentley was preaching at Joyner's church that evening on the raising of the dead:

Joyner has been key in "restoring" Bentley's reputation after he divorced his wife back in 2008 and, on Friday, the two men were preaching together at Joyner's "Harvest Fest 2015" event. Unfortunately, the footage from the event is only available to those with a subscription so we have been unable to watch it, though a short excerpt was released on the MorningStar YouTube page showing Bentley bragging about how he recently revived three people from the dead during an event in Pakistan:

It turns out that these are just the latest in a long string of resurrections of the dead in Bentley's career, as he explained earlier this month at a different event that he has been responsible for no fewer than 35 such miracles over the years.

Bentley recalled how he had recently cured a young girl of Down syndrome and had even brought back from the dead a man who, 48 hours earlier, had been electrocuted so badly that all of his internal organs were melted.

"I wish we had a dead body we could pray for, but we don't. That would have been a great illustration," Bentley stated, explaining that he travels with a "raising the dead tent" in which he places those who have recently died so that he can pray them back to life.

So far, he's managed to bring back 35 people, Bentley said, but for best results, they have to have died in the last couple of days.  Four days, it turns out, is generally the limit at which he is capable of bringing people back from the dead.

Rick Joyner: Jade Helm 15 Could Lead To Martial Law, Which Might Be A Good Thing

In a program that aired over a week after the conclusion of the Jade Helm 15 training exercise televangelists Jim Bakker and Rick Joyner wondered if the military drill was a precursor to martial law.

Joyner said that he received a message from God in 1987 that martial law was coming to America, insisting that “it can be a good thing” if we “get the right martial who can get things back on track.”

Bakker, who worried that he would end up in jail as a result of Jade Helm 15, then asked Joyner if he was worried that “martial law is going to come out of” the military exercise, which Joyner said is a possibility since all “first world nations” are “preparing for everything from pandemics to whatever to create a situation where you need martial law.”

Rick Joyner: God Could Be Sending Donald Trump To Save America

Conservative televangelist Rick Joyner is a big fan of Donald Trump, so used some of his time at a “Prophetic Conference” organized by Jim Bakker last week to sing the praises of the GOP presidential frontrunner.

Likening Trump to King Cyrus, the Persian king hailed for liberating the Jews from captivity in Babylon, Joyner said that God could use a President Trump to “turn it around” for the country because “his kind of boldness” and “courage” is exactly what America needs.

“It’s going to take incredible boldness to think ways nobody else can think and do things, if God is going to send us somebody to do it,” he said.

'We're The Government': Jerry Boykin Says Our Government Was Founded To Be Run By Christians

The Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin joined Rick Joyner for a "special update" on Sunday where Boykin asserted that Christians must be involved in politics because the Constitution came directly out of the Bible and the Founding Fathers created our system of government to be run by Christians.

Insisting that the separation of church and state is a myth, Boykin declared that the church was primarily responsible for the success of the American Revolution and as well as the abolition of slavery and suggested that Christians who refuse to get involved in politics are cowards.

"You don't have the courage to stand for what you believe in," Boykin said, "because the church has always been a dominant factor in the politics of America and the 56 men who signed that document were men of faith. When they came back and wrote that Constitution, they wrote that Constitution and derived all of the principles out of that Constitution out of the Bible. So when you hold up a Bible, you need to hold up the Constitution right next to it and say, 'This Constitution came from this Bible and every freedom that's given in this Constitution came from the Bible.'"

"When Christians say we shouldn't be involved in politics, you've got to be kidding me," he continue. "We're the government."

Last Year, God Told Rick Joyner The New England Patriots Would Win The Super Bowl

On yesterday's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner revealed that, prior to the start of last year's NFL season, God personally told him that the New England Patriots would win the Super Bowl and that it would be "a prophetic message that patriotism is going to win this year."

Joyner said that God regularly shows him "through sporting events some prophetic scenarios," and so, last year, he asked God when He was going to let the Carolina Panthers finally win a Super Bowl. God reportedly told Joyner "don't give up on the Panthers," which Joyner interpreted to mean that the Panthers would not have a very good year but "it could end up good," which is exactly what happened when the team made it into the playoffs despite having a losing record and even won a Wild Card game.

But more importantly, God told Joyner that the Patriots would win the Super Bowl, though Joyner wisely decided not to share that information publicly because otherwise people would have used it to gamble.

"The Lord told me the Patriots were going to win," he said. "I knew the Lord said and he was saying it as a prophetic message that patriotism is going to win this year.  And that's what's going to win and you're going to see Americans becoming patriotic again. And I knew that was a message and I think that's important for us to understand and, for that reason, I was kind of happy when the Patriots won it all, I knew we're going to see this unfold."

Joyner: 'Lawlessness' From Obama, Clinton, And SCOTUS Is A Sign Of The End Times

On today's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner warned that the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision, the controversy over Hillary Clinton's private email server and President Obama's entire presidency are proof of increasing "lawlessness" in American, which is a sign of the End Times.

"If nothing happens to Hillary, if she's not prosecuted for this, what has happened to law, what has happened to order, to justice?" Joyner asked. He went on to insist that Obama has "committed many impeachable offenses" which are sowing the seeds of lawlessness all over this nation. "If the president doesn't have to keep laws that he doesn't agree with, why should anybody have to keep laws they don't agree with?" he asked. "Why should I have to obey this speed limit sign out here? I don't agree with it."

"It just releases lawlessness across the board," he said. "It just releases lawlessness and this is one of the things the Lord warned is going to be one of the major signs of the End Times. We're either going to see justice done in relation to Hillary Clinton or we're going to see just how much further we've fallen into lawlessness."

Rick Joyner: Gay Marriage May Lead To Civil War

During a recent appearance on Daystar TV’s “Joni Table Talk,” televangelist Rick Joyner warned that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage will “start an unraveling where our country fractures like it hasn’t since the Civil War.”

Joyner also repeated his claim that gay marriage is a “trial run” for the Mark of the Beast, warning that people will soon have to choose whether they “bow to the Beast” by respecting non-discrimination laws or practice civil disobedience.

Homosexuality is “worse than a sin because of its corrupting influences,” Joyner said, explaining that gay rights measures are destroying the military and the country as a whole and bringing about God’s judgments: “We’re under them right now.”

Rick Joyner: Legalizing Gay Marriage Is A 'Trial Run' For The Mark Of The Beast

On yesterday's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, right-wing televangelist Rick Joyner reiterated his belief that a Supreme Court ruling striking down bans on gay marriage is a "trial run" for the Mark of the Beast.

After clarifying that he does not think this ruling will be the literal Mark of the Beast, but rather "is a remarkable parallel and does everything that [the Bible] says the Mark of the Beast will do," Joyner warned that Christian business owners will be faced with losing their livelihoods if gay marriage becomes legal nationwide.

"People are being put out of business because they would not violate their conscience, based on their belief in what God has said in his word about this issue, about homosexuality," Joyner said. "And because they would not violate that, which was a religious conviction, they've been put out of business. They can no longer buy, sell, or trade and that's what happens if you refuse to take the Mark of the Beast."

"We may be facing that situation," he continued, "and if this is not the Biblical Mark of the Beast that John wrote about in Revelation, it's at least a trial run."

Jim Bakker: ISIS Is Getting Ready To Kill Us, So Buy Mac & Cheese And Veggie Burgers Before It's Too Late

Last month, televangelist Jim Bakker broadcasted his show live from a “prepper” expo he was hosting at his megachurch in Missouri, where he offered viewers several reasons why they should fear imminent chaos and unrest in America: ISIS, urban violence, and anti-Christian persecution at the hands of the Obama administration and the gay community.

“So many in the inner-city for some reason hate the police,” Bakker said. “If the police are gone from one day, just suddenly gone, we are going to have anarchy, we are going to have the greatest hell on earth because the gangs will take over. And it’s time to be ready, it’s time to be prepared, it’s time to be informed.”

He added that “the group called ISIS and others have already established themselves in the United States of America and they are waiting for the final signals.” Bakker’s guest, Rick Joyner, confirmed that he had seen such calamities take place in a dream he had, which Bakker pointed to as further proof that people should call in to purchase packets of survivalist food such as macaroni and cheese, veggie burgers, chili and oatmeal.

Rick Joyner Apologizes To Putin And Islamists For America Becoming 'A Gay Nation'

Speaking at a “prepper” event at Jim Bakker’s megachurch in Missouri last month, televangelist Rick Joyner lamented that people like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Islamist leaders hate America because we have become “a gay nation.” This, Joyner said, was very true and deserved an apology, which he offered on the spot.

“One of the things [the Russians] really hate is what they think we have become, a gay nation,” he said. “It’s the main reason why Islam, by the way, calls us the ‘Great Satan.’ They think we’re, we say we trust God, we put that on our money, but we export the worst kinds of perversion all over the world.”

“And of course they have their own perversion, they have — but they see us as the source of the worst spiritual and moral pollution in the world. And, you know, we can’t disagree with that. That shouldn’t be happening here.”

“You know, when I spoke to a meeting of many of the top mullahs and imams at the World Public Forum, I apologized for that,” he continued. “And I will apologize. I am really sorry for the moral filth and pollution that is coming out of America, and this is happening on our watch too. You know, there are a lot of reasons why the nations hate us, but mainly they see hypocrisy on a level unprecedented. We say one thing and do the other.

Joyner, who was helping Bakker sell the survivalist goods that he markets through his ministry, went on to warn that the Obama administration is now working with the Council on American-Islamic Relations — falsely claiming that a U.S. court designated it as a terrorist group — to treat Christians in the U.S. as terrorists while completely ignoring Muslims plotting attacks.

“This is either naiveté, incompetence on a level unheard of in history, or it is treason, this is an inside job,” he said. “We’re letting them cross our border, we’re letting them fly into our thing. Now there are many being stopped, there are many great agents doing their job in spite of being handcuffed by regulations, orders coming down, memos, everything else. Our FBI was forbidden from investigating Muslims.”

Now, Joyner warned, the government has “started targeting … Christians, veterans, Second Amendment rights groups,” and saying that “we’re the terrorist threat, not the Muslims.”

“There’s a meltdown going on, America is being melted down, it’s being destroyed from within,” he warned. 

Joyner: SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling Could Bring About The Mark Of The Beast

Rick Joyner sent out an email to members of his Oak Initiative today, warning that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would be a "dress rehearsal" for the Mark of the Beast.

"Few events in history have so remarkably fit the biblical scenario of this mark as the potential U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage," he declared. "As bizarre as this may sound, this is an uncanny parallel to the biblical prophecy."

The “abomination of desolation” that was prophesied by Daniel, Jesus, and the first century apostles could have been translated “the abomination that desolates.” Because homosexuality is referred to as an abomination in Scripture, and its impact on Western culture is so quickly and profoundly desolating the moral fabric of Western civilization, it is to be expected that many will start to consider this “the abomination that desolates.”

Who could have dreamed just two decades ago that we would have major cities celebrating “Days of Decadence” with all manner of perversions being performed and flaunted openly in our streets? Who would have thought that such a moral and religious nation could fall so quickly to the ultimate national depravity spoken of in Isaiah 5—calling what God calls “good,” “evil,” and what God calls “evil,” “good,” while the dishonorable are honored and the honorable are dishonored? Is that not precisely what has happened to America in just the last generation?

The meltdown of morality in our military could be happening even faster. Just a few years ago, the U.S. military was such a bastion of morality and integrity that adultery was considered grounds for dismissal because one’s vows had been broken. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was the handwriting on the wall that a devastating change was coming. But who could have foreseen the pace of the desolation of our military since homosexuality was openly allowed in the ranks? It moved quickly from everyone having to accept it, to everyone having to celebrate it if you expected any further promotions, to now being forced out if you do not celebrate it.

Christians are now openly discriminated against, if not persecuted, in the U.S. military. Not only are some of the best and brightest leaving the military, they are no longer choosing it as a possible career.

The same is taking place throughout government services on all levels, as well as corporations, education, and the media, as was once the case for a long time in arts and entertainment. Now, with a single Supreme Court decision it could be that Christians, Muslims, and Jews that honor their books as the word of God will not be able to “buy, sell, or trade” in America without the constant threat of losing your business, or your position and livelihood, because of an offended homosexual.

Even if this is not “the mark of the beast,” it will be for those who are now losing what they, in some cases, have given their lives to build, because they would not compromise their religious convictions in order to buy, sell, or trade. If the Supreme Court decision falls the way it is expected to, we can be sure that very soon every Christian in America will have to make a similar choice between obeying the Word of God or this beast.

Rick Joyner: God Is Using Radical Islam To Punish The World For 'Perversion And Abortion'

On today's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner declared that God is using radical Islam to punish the world for accepting "perversion and abortion."

"What is happening with radical Islam rising in the earth is judgment from God against perversion and abortion," Joyner said. "I believe God is using it just the way He used the heathen nations around Israel; whenever Israel fell into apostasy, He would use the heathen nations around Israel to discipline them ... I believe this challenge of Islam all over the world, God is allowing it — it's not His spirit, it's contrary to His spirit — but He is allowing it to bring judgment on both perversion and abortion":

Joyner: High Salaries For Black Athletes Are God's Reparations For Slavery

On Friday's episode of "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events," Rick Joyner focused on the unrest that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of a grand jury's failure to indict a white police officer who shot an unarmed black teen. While discussing his views on the issue, Joyner shared his belief that blacks were brought to America as slaves as part of God's plan to teach this nation about freedom and that the large salaries professional athletes earn today are God's reparations for slavery.

"As the Lord showed me many years ago," he said, "He sent the blacks to our country to help teach us about freedom and liberty. You say 'they were made slaves, how are they going to know about freedom and liberty?' Wasn't Israel in prison, I mean they were made slaves to Egypt. You know, the only two people groups in history that were enslaved because of their race were the Israelites and the black people."

Citing the passage in Exodus in which the Egyptians shower the Israelites with riches as payment for their years of slavery, Joyner then said that the same thing is happening today with black professional athletes.

"I believe that's one reason for all the high salaries for athletes today," he said. "I rejoice in it. The bigger the salary that are mostly going to minorities, I'm saying that's the Lord doing that. They may not use it right or anything, but  the Lord is going to repay them":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 11/6/14

  • Gov. Bobby Jindal will reportedly be hosting a David Lane-organized prayer rally in Louisiana in January, much like Gov. Rick Perry did in Texas in 2011.
  • Rick Joyner says "No President has been so resoundingly rebuked by the American people as was done with the Elections of 2014. The House now has its largest majority in history, and it is Republican." Neither of those claims are true.
  • Tony Perkins claims that "as conservatives, we aren’t looking for businesses to take our side." Oh, really?
  • James Robison is cautiously optimistic about the election results: "God has mercifully given us the opportunity to see our nation awaken and begin the healing process. The runaway train now known to be an out-of-control, excessive, secular progressive (basically socialistic) federal government has at least been slowed, but not yet brought under control."
  • It is 2014 and the Republicans have finally elected a black woman to serve in the House of Representatives, so naturally Glenn Beck sees that as proof that Martin Luther King's dream has finally come true. Way to go Republicans! Oh, by the way, the first black woman to serve in Congress was a Democrat and she was elected in 1968.
