Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax TV program yesterday to discuss the news of the day, during which he voiced his displeasure that Congress allowed President Obama to deliver his State of the Union address and declared that there are legitimate questions regarding Ted Cruz's eligibility to be president.
DeLay kicked things off by declaring that he was "a little upset that the Congress even invited [Obama] to come give the State of the Union" because "he's a lawless president" and so Congress "should have disinvited him."
Eventually, the topic of Donald Trump's "birther" attacks on Ted Cruz came up and DeLay made it clear that while he is not defending Trump and "would never vote for him," the questions about Cruz's eligibility are serious and something that Cruz needs to address.
"I gotta say, I've had this problem ever since Cruz announced," DeLay stated. "There is a difference between the definition of natural born and naturalization and it has not been settled by any branch of government. So I think Cruz needs to address this in some way because I think it is a cloud right now in Iowa."
When Malzberg asked if Cruz should take the issue to the courts, DeLay responded that "that's probably the most expedient way to do it."
"He's going to the courts if he's the nominee," DeLay stated. "The Democrats will use every avenue available to them, they sued me over a ballot issue. They'll sue him. He'll end up in the courts one way or another."
The fall of marriage equality bans in all 50 states following the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision was a disaster for the conservative movement, whose leaders have spent years demonizing same-sex couples and warning that the legal recognition of their marriages will unleash a wave of terror on the nation.
Even the not-exactly-pious GOP presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, is activelycourting the anti-gay Right, although he has trouble explaining why he should be seen as a strong defender of “traditional marriage.”
In the eyes of many conservative activists, Obergefell was the product of a culture that had been slipping away for years, bringing America into an apocalyptic period where growing acceptance for homosexuality is ushering in disastrous consequences.
Weeks before the Supreme Court handed down its ruling, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah declared that if the court struck down state bans on same-sex marriage and conservative states didn’t seceded from the union in protest, anti-gay activists like himself would flee the country. “Are there any governors or legislatures out there among the 50 states willing to secede to offer a refuge for the God-fearing?” he asked, warning that if states were to stay in the U.S. following a pro-equality decision, the world should expect “a pilgrimage by millions of Americans.”
End Times radio host Rick Wiles told his listeners that the country would “be brought to its knees” if the Supreme Court were to rule in favor of marriage equality and that there would be “pain and suffering at a level we’ve never seen in this country,” caused by “riots or looting or war on American soil or a fireball from space.”
Texas pastors Robert Jeffress and Rick Scarborough also got in the mix. Jeffress said the ruling could pave the way for the Antichrist while Scarborough said conservatives must “fight until we die” and “push back with all our might” against a ruling in favor of gay marriage, which he said would “unleash the spirit of hell on the nation.” Scarborough even boasted that he was ready to go to jail and face death: “We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary, we will burn.”
As one might expect, the responses to the ruling were not much different from the predictions.
The day after the ruling, Wiles declared that he received a message from God, who asked him to tell the people to “flee” the country before God destroys it through economic ruin, food shortages, terrorism, disease and slavery. “America is over,” he declared. Later, Wiles predicted that America is “going to see gunfire” from people resisting the government over gay marriage. “Somebody’s going to jail, somebody’s going to die, somebody’s going to suffer,” he said.
Michael Bresciani of the Christian Post said Obergefell would lead to “an economic crash much more serious than the stock market crash of 29,” while WND’s Farah envisioned “more civil and racial strife” or “an attack on our country from foreign power or terrorist group.”
Fox News pundit Todd Starnes said that “pastors who refuse to perform gay marriage and preach from the Bible should prepare for hate crime charges,” while Illinois pastor Erwin Lutzer told religious parents to prepare to “be diagnosed as culturally intolerant and personality intolerant,” as a result of which “their children will be taken away from them.” Perkins of the FRC claimed that the Supreme Court’s decision would threaten the freedom of speech and gun rights.
American Family Radio host Sandy Rios, who also serves as the American Family Association’s governmental affairs director, said that homosexuality may have been “a factor” in the deadly Amtrak crash in May. She suggested that the engineer, who is gay, may have been having a breakdown as he experienced “some confusion” related to homosexuality.
Fellow AFR host Bryan Fischer specifically blamed flooding in Texas on God’s judgment for homosexuality, saying that “you can make a geographical connection” between flooding and homosexuality. (We wonder what that means for American Family Radio’s home town of Tupelo, Mississippi, which was hit by a tornado last year).
Huckabee also suggested that America is in “a dangerous place” because “if man believes that he can redefine marriage, it’s apparent that man believes he has become his own god,” and God will not protect such a nation.
The Religious Right has a long history of absurdly claiming that evangelical Christians are facing persecution in America, and the Obergefell ruling only amped up such rhetoric.
Huckabee warned that the gay rights movement “won’t stop until there are no more churches, until there are no more people who are spreading the Gospel,” lamenting that too many Christians don’t realize “how close they are to losing all of their freedoms.” Huckabee’s fellow GOP presidential candidate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, also got in on the action, warning that a gay “jihad” is “going after people of faith who respect the biblical teaching that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.”
Glenn Beck predicted that Obergefell would result in serious repercussions for the media, claiming that “anybody on this show [who] says they’re for traditional marriage” will have their airtime in jeopardy as the ruling “could mean the end of radio broadcasts like mine.”
Nothing set off more persecution rhetoric than the Kim Davis saga, in which the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk blocked her office from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of a court order, citing “God’s authority.” She was temporarily placed in the custody of U.S. Marshals after she said she would continue to flout the courts and was only released after deputy clerks started to issue the licenses.
Even before the Davis case, many Republicans had been insisting that government officials may not have to treat court rulings on marriage as authoritative after all, and can simply flout the process of judicial review. Obergefell gave them the perfect opportunity to put these arguments into action.
Before quitting the presidential race, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal lambasted the decision, explaining that “no earthly court can change the definition of marriage.” Huckabee said that if elected president, he would tell the Supreme Court: “Thank you for your opinion, but we shall ignore it.” “It’s a matter of saving our republic to say that, as president, we’re not going to accept this decision, we will ignore it and we will not enforce it,” he said.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida also claimed that when civil law conflicts with “God’s rules,” then government officials must choose the latter because “God’s rules always win.” Rubio, along with his fellow GOP presidential candidates Cruz, Huckabee, Ben Carson, Rick Santorum and Carly Fiorina, also pledged to sign legislation confronting the supposed discrimination faced by gay marriage opponents.
The “700 Club” host worried in September that gay marriage would trigger a perilous financial crisis, warning that “the rupture of the entire financial framework of our world” could occur because of the Obergefell ruling. He again alleged in November that “the wrath of God” is headed to America now that “it’s a constitutional right for sodomites to marry each other,” possibly in the form of “a massive financial collapse.”
“They’re going to make you conform to them,” he said of gay rights advocates. “You are going to say you like anal sex, you like oral sex, you like bestiality, you like anything you can think of, whatever it is.”
“Christianity, the founding principle of this nation, is criminalized,” he said in response to the Davis controversy. “You go to jail if you believe in God and stand fast for your beliefs against the onslaught of secular humanism and the flood that comes about with it.” (Robertson, of course, has not been jailed).
Warning viewers that “the homosexuals don’t just want to be left alone, now they want to come out and stick it to the Christians,” Robertson said that gay rights laws are creating “absolute tyranny” and “it's high time we call it what it is and we stand up for freedom.”
The televangelist also offered his patented advice to people with gay children.
He told one mother to send her daughter, who is dating another woman, to a Christian summer camp and “pray that God will straighten her out.” He said that the girl was probably “pressured” into embracing a lesbian identity because “there’s so much lesbian stuff, I mean, lesbian this, lesbian the other, so much homosexual — the media is pushing this as hard as they can possibly push it.” He told another viewer who has a gay son to treat him like a drug addict, and advised yet another parent that God could change his gay son if only the son were to start “acting like a man.”
Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax Prime yesterday, where he declared that President Obama is a coward who has "surrendered to ISIS" and so Republicans need to dedicate themselves to putting pressure on Obama and the Democrats to launch a full-scale war against ISIS.
"We have a president that is feckless, that is incompetent, that has no idea what he's doing," DeLay declared, "and Congress has to say it, Congress has to stand up."
"If I was there," he continued, "I would suspend all legislation for the rest of the year .... and focus on going to war and eliminating ISIS and go to the American people in their districts and in their states, explain what's going on here, explain what has to happen, show them a president that is a coward and stand up for the people when they rise up. First place I would go is I would go to every state that has a Democrat senator and every district that has a Democrat House member and I would physically move my members into those districts and start holding town meetings and hang Obama around these Democrats and weaken their resolve to support this horrible strategy of Obama's. Then you can build a pressure cooker that might force the president to do the right thing."
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay joined “Wallbuilders Live” today to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on gay marriage, repeating his call for states to “defy” the “illegitimate” ruling.
DeLay was especially incensed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the Supreme Court’s ruling the “law of the land,” urging fellow Republican members of Congress to “revolt” against McConnell and start punishing the entire federal court system for the gay marriage decision by cutting courts’ budgets, limiting their jurisdictions and impeaching judge.
“The members should revolt against that and go after McConnell for saying that, because there’s a lot that Congress can do,” he said. “Not just limited jurisdiction of the courts, they can pass a constitutional amendment, they can impeach judges, they can cut the budgets of the courts — they can’t cut the Supreme Court, but lower courts — they can express themselves that way, express their abhorrence to the ruling by cutting the budgets. There’s just a lot of things that they can do to invoke the separation of powers.”
The right-wing response to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision has been, quite literally, apocalyptic.
It’s only been five days since the court issued its ruling, but conservative pundits have already predicted that gay marriage will ultimately be responsible for natural disasters, terrorist attacks and the destruction of freedom.
While there haven’t been any terrorist attacks against the U.S. since the court’s ruling, whenever there are, anti-LGBT activists will know who to blame: gay people who want to get married.
“They have thumbed their nose at God’s design for man, a man and a woman designed from the beginning of time and creation, and it will not, it will not stand,” she added. “While we’re under such terrible terror threats, you know, our protections have been lifted and that’s what they don’t understand.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, also warned that “God’s hand of protection will be withdrawn as future actions from external and internal forces will soon make clear. I will do all I can to prevent such harm, but I am gravely fearful that the stage has now been set.”
“America’s elite leadership have taken the side of the enemies of God, and He will take notice,” WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah warned, claiming that such divine judgment “could come in the form of an attack on our country from foreign power or terrorist group.”
Rick Wiles, host of the End Times radio program “Trunews,” similarly predicted that God will now “lift His hand of protection from this nation” and “permit America’s enemies to attack this nation.”
Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy in Media was a little more tame in his reasoning but came to the same conclusion: “A country that descends to the bottom of the barrel morally and culturally will not be able to defend itself against its foreign adversaries and enemies. Indeed, we have the evidence all around us that, as the culture has degenerated, our ability to defend ourselves has simultaneously been weakened.”
2)Forced gay sex
The right-wing warnings of “forced homosexuality” are now coming true, at least according to one pastor. Tim Brooks of the Christian Ministries Church told one conservative radio program that gay people, just like the men of Sodom who tried to rape angelic visitors, “are trying to force their lifestyle on him, come out and have sex with us, have to participate.”
Record-breaking floods have inundated Washington, D.C. just days after the Supreme Court decided they knew better than God. I seem to remember another time in history when there was a record-breaking flood.
God painted the sky with rainbow colors after that flood. This go-around - Obama painted the White House with rainbow colors.
Anybody got an ark?
Heavy rain may not be the only result of same-sex marriage (besides equal marriage rights for gay people), as some Religious Right pundits also believe that divine wrath will come in the form of food shortages and drought.
Wiles warned that “God will cut off America’s food supply and this nation will be hit with disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking.”
“Nothing grabs the attention of the distracted faster than the complete removal of all creature comforts and extravagant wealth,” Christian Post columnist Michael Bresciani said. “Crops will fail, stores will close and commerce will come almost to a complete stop. It will not be pretty. Add to that, attacks from our enemies and natural disasters rising to meet the pride of the sinners’ right where it hurts the most.”
Five years ago, Religious Right leaders confidently predicted that prison cells and court rooms would fill up with pastors after the passage of the 2009 Hate Crimes Act. Of course, such events never occurred, but now the same anti-LGBT activists are making the samefalseclaims about the supposed consequences of same-sex marriage.
“Pastors who refuse to perform gay marriage and preach from the Bible should prepare for hate crime charges,” Starnes said. “All dissent will be silenced.”
Richard Land, a former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention’s political arm, was a little more cautious, explaining that pastors will indeed face prison if they refuse to officiate same-sex couple’s weddings, but only after the government takes a few “intermediate steps.”
Just days prior to the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, Glenn Beck said that if the court were to decide in favor of same-sex couples, then the Bible would be outlawed as a “hate book.” Just hours after the decision came down, Beck offered another dire warning: He will lose his show.
“This could mean the end of radio broadcasts like mine,” Beck said, insisting that he will be taken off the air simply because he is “for traditional marriage.”
7)Taking kids from their parents
Chicago-based pastor Erwin Lutzer believes that parents who oppose same-sex marriage may lose custody of their children following the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, predicting that “parents that homeschool children, religious parents, will be diagnosed as culturally intolerant and personality intolerant. And therefore, as a result, their children will be taken away from them.”
Rios, the AFA official, even warned that children may be forced to spy on their parents like in the Soviet Union.
8)This means war
Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman denounced the marriage equality ruling as a “harbinger to revolution,” urging Americans to take to rebellion like the Founding Fathers did.
“If evil despots have compromised even our Supreme Court, the ultimate protector and ‘decider’ of our rights, then what choice is left to us?” Klayman asked. “John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin certainly know, from their own experience with King George, and from their graves they see what now again lies ahead and what must be done to restore freedom to our shores.”
One conservative pundit, Bill Muehlenberg, told readers that “a major proper response for Christians and others” to the Supreme Court’s ruling “is massive civil disobedience and defiance of this homo-fascist decision.”
9)Pedophilia now legal
Former House GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who promised that “all hell is going to break loose” if the Supreme Court decided to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage, declared that he has uncovered a “secret memo” from the Department of Justice that reveals plans to legalize “having sex with little boys,” along with bestiality and polygamy.
The website run by West, the former congressman, even claimed that pedophilia supporters celebrated the Friday ruling. As the myth-busting website Snopes notes, the blog post on West’s site was “lifted almost entirely from an article published in 2011 and in no way reflected a claim prompted by a June 2015 Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage.” They add that the 2011 story “originated with a writer who has been asserting for years (less than accurately) that the push for gay rights is manifestly setting the stage for legalized ‘pedophilia rights.’”
Perhaps the blog post’s author received this news from David Barton, the right-wing pseudo-historian who just days before the court issued its ruling alleged, falsely, that pedophilia became “legally protected” following the passage of the 2009 Hate Crimes Act.
10)Criminalization of Christianity
The most prominent claim coming from the Religious Right in response to the Supreme Court’s decision has been what Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has called the government attempt to “eliminate” religious beliefs that oppose gay rights.
“In one appalling decision, the Supreme Court has effectively opened the door to the criminalization of Christianity when it comes to the marriage issue ... and not just Christianity, but every major religion that supports God’s model for marriage and family,” warned Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America.
Right-wing pundit Matt Barber made a similar claim: “The goal of ‘LGBT’ activists and secular progressives has long been to pit the government directly against the free exercise of religion – Christianity in particular – and to silence all dissent.”
One FRC official, Craig James, said that conservatives who oppose the same-sex marriage decision should respond to the coming persecution and ridicule “in love” … just like the families of the Charleston massacre.
Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax TV yesterday, where he told host Steve Malzberg that, just as he had predicted, all Hell is now breaking loose because of the Supreme Court ruling striking down gay marriage bans. Things are now so out of control, DeLay said, that he even knows about a "secret memo" from the Justice Department aimed at legalizing "12 new perversions," including bestiality and pedophilia.
"We've already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department," DeLay claimed. "They're now going to go after 12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy, having sex with little boys and making that legal. Not only that, but they have a whole list of strategies to go after the churches, the pastors, and any businesses that tries to assert their religious liberty. This is coming and it's coming like a tidal wave."
Malzberg, who was predictably shocked by the news that Department of Justice was now going to seek to legalize things like pedophilia, asked DeLay to clarify that that was what he had just claimed and DeLay assured him that it was.
"That's correct," he said. "They're coming down with 12 new perversions. LGBT is only the beginning. They are going to start expanding it to the other perversions."
This past Saturday, Phyllis Schlafly hosted former House GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay on “Eagle Forum Live” to discuss the alleged threat of gay marriage. Schlafly segued into the topic of gay marriage by describing an open letter to the SupremeCourt, signed by conservative pastors and politicians, pledging to defy any Court decision which strikes down state bans on same-sex marriage.
DeLay lamented that “people don’t understand the constitution. We haven’t taught our children now for three or four generations what the Constitution is, and the separation of powers, and what our Founding Fathers had in mind as this brilliant understanding of how you can limit government and limit the tyranny put on us through people or oligarchies.”
Because of this supposed constitutional ignorance, DeLay claimed, “right now, the American people don’t understand that the Supreme Court, when it makes a ruling, it’s just an opinion if no one enforces that ruling. The Supreme Court doesn’t have a police force; the Supreme Court doesn’t have an army; the Supreme Court doesn’t have people that can enforce their ruling.” Therefore, if conservatives “stand up to them and invoke the Constitution, then we don’t have to accept a ruling on marriage that redefines marriage. And that’s basically what this ad is all about. We’re sending a message to the Supreme Court that, number one, it’s illegal that they have this case before them; it’s not in their jurisdiction.”
Proving his Constitutional prowess, DeLay argued that “it’s not in their authority to write law by ten unelected, unaccountable people, lawyers, and if – this is a red line that we’re drawing. If they rule against marriage, we will all defy them.”
Further along in the show, a caller, responding to the overreach of the Supreme Court, noted that “civil rights laws, such as Brown v. Board of Education and Virginia v. Loving [sic], were put on us by courts legislating from the bench and presidential executive orders. And back then even one-third of the black people did not want integration. And Governor George Wallace warned about the tyranny now happening under the Obama administration.”
Responding to this lecture, Schlafly observed, “Well, lots of mistakes have been made along those lines.”
DeLay concluded his time on Schlafly’s show by commentating on the “danger” of the potential imposition of martial law by pointing to the stand-off at Bundy Ranch in April 2015, where Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy refused to pay grazing fees for using federal land. “He stood up to them and backed them down,” DeLay said.
Tom DeLay, the former Republican House majority leader, is still waiting for a massive revolt if the Supreme Court strikes down same-sex marriage bans, telling Steve Malzberg of Newsmax yesterday that “all hell is going to break loose” if the court makes such a decision.
DeLay said that anyone who “understands the Constitution” knows that the legislative and executive branches do not need to enforce a Supreme Court ruling, “and not only that, if the states would just invoke the 10th Amendment and assert their sovereignty, they could defy a ruling by the Supreme Court.”
“If this Supreme Court rules against marriage, all hell is going to break loose,” DeLay said, citing a pledge signed by politicians and activists, including Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, who have vow to defy such a ruling by the court. “We’re going to stand for marriage even if it takes civil disobedience.”
Former House GOP leader Tom DeLay stopped by Houston talk radio host Sam Malone’s show last week to discuss his efforts to stay active in politics since leaving the House of Representatives in a cloud of corruption accusations, or, as Malone called it, “the persecution of Tom DeLay.”
“The Supreme Court is about to put out a ruling on marriage and they have no jurisdiction to do so, they shouldn’t have even heard this case, they have no right to redefine marriage and hopefully the American people will rise up and really undermine the legitimacy of the Supreme Court,” DeLay said.
Former House GOP majority leader Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax program yesterday to discuss the incident in Garland, Texas, last week where two Islamic radicals were killed as they tried to attack an anti-Islam event hosted by Pamela Geller … which naturally led them to a discussion of gay marriage.
While they were on the topic of “religious freedom,” Malzberg asked DeLay about an exchange during the recent Supreme Court oral arguments on marriage equality in which Justice Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli about the Supreme Court ruling that allowed the government to strip Bob Jones University of its tax exemption because of its racially discriminatory practices, and whether the same thing could happen to a university that opposes same-sex marriage. “I mean, my God, is that the road we’re headed down in this country?” Malzberg asked.
DeLay replied that the left is trying to force gay marriage “down our throats” just like Islamic extremists are “forcing someone’s belief down other people.”
“It certainly is the road we’re headed down by the left, and they’re trying to force it down our throats,” he said, “and people like Pam Geller and many others need to be standing up and speaking out. I mean, right there in the Dallas area, where Garland is, the Muslims have come together and they’re trying to impose Sharia law on a voluntary basis, which is the next step into forcing someone’s belief down other people.”
“I mean, honor killings are happening in this country, manipulation destruction of female genitals is happening in this country,” he continued. “Everything that the radical Islamists are talking about, all these things are in their holy book, and we’ve got to have a discussion about this, and we have to make sure that these kinds of beliefs are not imposed on our Constitution or on our way of life.”
Tom DeLay appeared on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax program yesterday to defend Indiana's "religious freedom" law against the attacks from people who "have chosen to be homosexuals," saying that conservative Christians must be ready to "fight this battle to the bitter end."
"This is the result of the gay agenda," DeLay said. "We're now seeing what the gay agenda is all about ... What they're trying to do is to undermine religious liberty so that they become an accepted sexual orientation. That's what's going on here and we have got to fight this battle to the bitter end because once you let the government dictate to you what you believe and what your values are, then this country's finished."
"This isn't about discrimination," he continued. "We love people that have chosen to be homosexuals. The problem is we abhor the sin."
DeLay went on to say that if he owned a business, he'd have no problem serving a gay customer, provided that he didn't know about their sexual orientation.
"But if he comes in and asks me to undermine my values," he said, "undermine my religious liberty, then I have the right to stand up for what I believe in and not serve him. It's not discrimination; it's the government telling us how we are to act, what we are to believe, and that has got to be fought with every ounce of our being":
Rep. Steve King turned heads over the weekend when he scolded Jewish Democrats for not being sufficiently supportive of Israel. In comments first reported on BuzzFeed, the Iowa congressman said he does not “understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president.” He later added that “everyone in the discussion knows I’m right.”
King’s suggestion that the vastmajority of Jews in America are somehow bad Jews by voting Democratic is a regular talking point among Christian Right speakers.
Here is a look at other right-wing leaders who have denounced American Jews for daring to vote against the GOP:
1)Bachmann: Jews ‘Sold Out Israel’
Before leaving Congress, Michele Bachmann denounced Jewish voters for having supposedly “sold out Israel” by showing support for President Obama.
She told Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council that she found it “shocking” that many Jews “support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel.”
2)Family Research Council Angry With Jewish Money
Like Bachmann, FRC’s Perkins has said that it’s “ironic” that while “the Democratic Party works against the benefit of Israel in many ways,” many Democratic members of Congress are “mostly aligned with a lot of the Jewish lobby” and “enjoy the money coming from the Jewish community.” He also criticized “liberal Jewish folk” for supporting marriage equality, which he alleged will somehow harm Israel.
Jerry Boykin, the group’s executive vice president, criticized American Jews for believing that Adolf Hitler was a leader of Germany’s far-right.
3)American Jews Are Simply ‘Confused’
Like Boykin, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association thinks that American Jews are simply ignorant or “confused.”
“The Jewish vote in this country is so confused,” Rios said in 2012. “So many of the Jews in this country are atheist and their hearts are with this president, at least their political concerns are with this president. They are with him on all the issues, you know abortion, all the things you might list.” She went on to say that while “most of the Jews in this country are far left, unfortunately,” even more dangerous are “Jewish atheists” who “sometimes turn out to be the worst enemies of the country.”
Rios has also claimed that “Jewish leftists in this country are eager to embrace Islam” and warned that “powerful Jewish forces” are out to suppress freedom.
4)‘Self-Hating Jews’ Run Obama Administration
Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman marked Independence Day last year by blasting the “self-hating” Jews in the Obama administration who “lose no opportunity to distance themselves from their Judeo-Christian heritage in the style of Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky and indeed the evil Fuhrer Adolf Hitler himself, who many historians have concluded had Jewish roots on his father's side of the family.”
“These types of Jews, some of whom are present in the Obama White House to give Obama cover for his anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli acts and practices, are among the greatest enemies of the Jewish people,” he said, claiming that they help those “who are dedicated to [Israel’s] destruction.”
In another column, he went even further in criticizing the supposed “leftist Jewish influence” behind “anti-family institutions like gay marriage” and the “outright criminal behavior of the Obama administration,” writing: “I am more than embarrassed and appalled as a Jew to see my own people at the forefront of a number of scandals now perpetrated by the Muslim-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, and his leftist Jewish government comrades and partners in crime. It is time for the great majority of Jews, who are honest law-abiding citizens, to speak up and play a role in helping to put these felonious liberal Jews in a place where the sun don't shine – meaning prison.”
He said that while the Jews who oppose such liberals are the “true Jews” who “police their own house and [do] not allow criminal behavior to go unaddressed, no matter what the source,” those who do not fight Obama are “more akin to ‘Hitler’s Jews.’”
Former House GOP leader Tom DeLay was the guest on the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, where he warned that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the both the White House and Congress and then declared that every Muslim who runs for political office must be grilled on whether they are willing to pledge allegiance to the flag and support the Constitution.
After insisting that President Obama has filled his administration with Muslim Brotherhood operatives and fretting that "we have two Muslims in the House of Representatives right now," including one who is sitting on the Intelligence Committee, DeLay warned that "this is getting very dangerous."
Later in the program, he said that every candidate running for office at any level must be asked "tough questions" because "we've got people running for office right now that I question their motives."
"If you are a Muslim, for instance, and you are running for office," DeLay said, "will you pledge allegiance to the flag? When you take that oath of office to support the Constitution, which constitution are you supporting? The United States Constitution or the constitution outlined in the Koran? Those are very important things to be asking right now":
Former House GOP leader Tom DeLay says he didn’t like President Obama’s State of the Union address one bit, telling Steve Malzberg of Newsmax yesterday that President Obama proved himself to be an “arrogant” leader who shows his “disdain” and “contempt for the American people.”
“A referee should’ve thrown a flag for taunting,” he said. “It was the most unbelievable performance I’ve ever seen.”
Later, DeLay claimed Obama “eviscerated the Constitution over and over again” by calling for universal child care and community college access and an increase in the minimum wage, which DeLay said are all “totally unconstitutional.”
“Even if the American people can’t articulate it, they know this is wrong and they know that it is going to destroy this country,” DeLay said, before noting that the people who want what Malzberg called “free this and free that” ultimately “vote Democrat anyway, most of them.”
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, known as “The Hammer” for his hardball political tactics, assailed John Boehner in an interview yesterday for punishing several congressmen who voted against his re-election as House speaker.
While speaking with “Washington Watch” host and Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, DeLay praised the Republicans who challenged Boehner’s third term as speaker while lamenting that members of the GOP conference “are at each other’s throat.”
He urged listeners to “tell your own congressman that you are watching what is going on and you do not support retaliating against members that vote their conscience” on the leadership vote, and advised the defectors to “fight back” against Boehner’s schemes.
DeLay criticized Boehner for having “misinterpreted the election that just happened,” adding: “He thinks the election happened so they can govern, my interpretation of the election was the people said to stop Obama, stand on principle and fight for the Constitution.”
DeLay also told Perkins that Jesus Christ helped him through his legal ordeal over campaign finance and money laundering charges, insisting that he faced government persecution because of his political views. Democrats, DeLay said, want to “bankrupt you, destroy your family, put you in a grave and dance on that grave.” Now DeLay hopes to bring about “a constitutional revolution in this country.”
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.”
Tom DeLay was a guest on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax radio program yesterday where he declared that Americans simply cannot trust President Obama or anyone in the government when it comes to handling the current Ebola crisis.
DeLay asserted that the Obama administration "cannot seem to get beyond their liberal leanings" and take the steps necessary to keep the disease from entering the United States.
"We can't believe everything they're telling us," DeLay said. "I've got so many questions about Ebola and how it's contracted."
DeLay was not convinced that Ebola can only be contracted by contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, pointing to the infection of NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo in Liberia to ask "was he touching people's bodily fluids, did he touch a doorknob?"(Mukpo thinks he may have become infected after washing a car in which an Ebola patient had died.)
"We know nothing," DeLay said, "so we can't believe what they're telling us and certainly we can't be confident that they're doing the right thing":
Now that his money laundering conviction has been overturned on appeal, former House GOP Leader Tom DeLay is considering another run for political office. But first he has to sue the district attorney’s office that brought the charges against him, DeLay explained to WorldNetDaily today. DeLay, who since resigning his seat in Congress has emerged asavocalReligiousRightactivist, told the far-right outlet that he’s “coming back to Washington” in order to expose President Obama as “a radical Marxist with a worldview that makes him happy with the chaos that’s going on.”
He claimed that Republicans haven’t been tough enough on Democrats who “want to destroy you and your family” and “want to bankrupt you and put you in a coffin so they can dance on your grave.”
“The worldview of the left that has destroyed America is what we should be fighting,” he said. “The radical culture of the left is why 60 million babies have been killed in the United States since Roe v. Wade. Yet, the Republican response is to say, ‘Well, I want the Keystone Pipeline.’”
He said he now has “some very clever lawyers” working on developing a legal strategy on either the federal or state level to bring charges against the Travis County DA.
On Wednesday, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals upheld an earlier ruling throwing out his conviction in 2010 on charges that he improperly funneled donations to Texas House candidates.
“If I can, I am going to go after them,” DeLay affirmed.
He also indicated he was considering returning to Washington and possibly running for political office in Texas now that his name has been cleared.
“I’m very excited that I can now get on with my life, and whatever the Lord has got for me, that’s where I’m headed,” he said.
“And I’m coming back to Washington; now that the clouds have cleared, Washington very well could be where I’m headed.”
“What the Democrats did to me is right out of the pages of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals,’” DeLay said. “People don’t understand, but it’s the politics of Karl Marx that drive the far left in control of the Democratic Party.”
“The point is that in Barack Obama the American people are getting to see a radical Marxist with a worldview that makes him happy with the chaos that’s going on,” he said. “This is exactly what Obama wants done, and people are finally seeing Obama for who he really is.”
DeLay was critical of the Republican Party leadership for not challenging Obama for his radical Marxist ideological background and political beliefs.
“The Republican Party leadership does not understand they are dealing with the far left when they are dealing with the Democrats today,” he said. “The Democrats want to destroy you and your family. They want to bankrupt you and put you in a coffin so they can dance on your grave.”
“The worldview of the left that has destroyed America is what we should be fighting,” he stressed. “The radical culture of the left is why 60 million babies have been killed in the United States since Roe v. Wade. Yet, the Republican response is to say, ‘Well, I want the Keystone Pipeline.’”
