DeLay: 'We Can't Believe' What The Government Is Telling Us About Ebola

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":

Tom DeLay Wants To Run For Office Again To Expose 'Radical Marxist' Obama

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 as a vocal Religious Right activist, 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.’”

Paranoia-Rama: Obama Is Helping 'His ISIS Buddies,' Introducing 'National Socialism' And Persecuting Conservatives

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

While he isn’t busy persecuting conservative activists, President Obama spends his time helping ISIS fighters avoid airstrikes…that he himself ordered. At least, that’s what we learned this week in the alternate reality of the far-right.

5. Stop Persecuting Tony Perkins, Says Tony Perkins

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has made it quite clear that he believes anti-gay activists like himself will soon be forced into the “boxcars” that will be “hauling off Christians” to concentration camps, and he has kept up the warnings of impending persecution while discussing the FRC’s Values Voter Summit, which starts today.

In a fundraising appeal to FRC supporters this week, Perkins warned that “American democracy simply cannot survive” the attacks coming from “far Left activists and the radical homosexual lobby.” Oh his “Washington Watch” radio show, he recounted the purported ways that Democrats and progressive groups are trying to “silence” him and overturn the First Amendment.

4. Dinesh D’Souza Is Also Being Persecuted, Of Course

After switching his plea from not guilty to guilty for making illegal campaign donations, a felony, conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced to eight months probation in a community confinement center along with psychological therapy. The sentencing prompted yet another media tour for D’Souza, who insisted that his prosecution for breaking the law — which he admitted to doing — amounts to political persecution.

D’Souza boasted in an interview with WorldNetDaily that the government was not “successful in shutting me up,” and the conservative activist told Glenn Beck that the prosecution came at the orders from the “petty” President Obama. Beck even said that D’Souza “is a political prisoner,” despite the fact that D’Souza was not sentenced to any prison time.

3. ‘National Socialism’ a-Comin’

Sen. Pat Roberts is doing whatever it takes to salvage his foundering re-election campaign, and this week he alleged that, as a result of President Obama’s time in office, “our country is heading for national socialism.”

Roberts defended his remarks by explaining that Obama wants to turn the U.S. into “a European socialistic state,” adding: “You can’t tell me anything that he has not tried to nationalize.”

And if rhetoric like that doesn’t work, Roberts will shore up his standing with the Tea Party crowd with the help of his latest booster: Sarah Palin.

2. People Who Believe In Climate Change Are Just Like Hitler

Rush Limbaugh knows the real reason people believe that human activities are influencing climate change. No, not because there is a consensus among climate scientists on the matter, but as Limbaugh explains, “it’s all politics.”

“It is a politics that intentionally insults the intelligence of people and preys on the dumb and the stupid and the weak,” Limbaugh said while definitely not projecting. In order to find “meaning in their lives,” Limbaugh explained, people start thinking they have the power to “save the planet” and start to feel “their new life has meaning” and that “they can make a difference.”

And you know who else thought he could make a difference with his life? Hitler.

“Hitler made a difference,” he said. “Stop and think about that.”

1. Obama Is Shielding ISIS While Bombing Them

Conservatives are having a difficult time rationalizing the fact that President Obama has launched hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS and other extremist groups while at the same time insisting that he is a secret Muslim and terrorist sympathizer.

Tom DeLay, for instance, said that Obama is doing nothing to stop ISIS and “ought to wear a pink t-shirt because he is an anti-war president,” while Rick Wiles wondered if Obama is protecting “his ISIS buddings” and has possibly tipped them off to U.S. airstrike targets.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer had his own take, arguing that the Obama administration is deliberately trying to hit empty buildings and minimize casualties among the ISIS ranks.

Tom DeLay: Obama Is A Code Pink Member

In the midst of a U.S.-led bombing campaign against ISIS, former House GOP leader Tom DeLay told Andy Parks of the Washington Times last week that President Obama is refusing to take action to stop the militant group.

DeLay offered his own strategy: “We have to do something.”

“The president ought to wear a pink t-shirt because he is an anti-war president,” he said, referring to the group Code Pink. “We have an anti-war secretary of state, we have an anti-war secretary of defense so everybody is a little anxious about what is to come. The president has realized that something has to be done, now he’s going to do as little as possible.”

Code Pink has actually disrupted remarks by President Obama, along with Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

Why Are 'Sexual Radicals' Accusing Poor Matt Barber, Rick Scarborough And Daniel Lapin of Being Anti-Gay?

In the latest installment of the right-wing victimhood saga, the Illinois-based World Congress of Families has released an open letter accusing “sexual radicals” of launching a “smear campaign” against them in advance of a planned conference in Melbourne later this week.

“Sexual radicals have launched a smear campaign to discredit the Melbourne conference, which misrepresents the international pro-family movement and the positions of the World Congress of Families,” the letter says. “Specifically, it is alleged that advocacy of the natural (or normative) family is somehow unfair to other families and that we ‘shame’ single-parent families, homosexual ‘couples’ and the divorced.” (Scare quotes in the original.)

"The goal of sexual radicals is to deconstruct marriage and marginalize the family, and thus to transform society into something unrecognizable to generations past," the letter continues. "Like all social experiments that attempt to create a 'new man,' these are doomed to failure."

Yes, who could accuse the signers of the letter of shaming LGBT people? Among the 80 signatories are such notable LGBT allies as Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, who started his very own website to publish off-the-charts anti-gay vitriol; Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who has said that homosexuality is a form of “barbarism”; Russian World Congress of Families activists Alexei Komov and Pavel Parfentiev, who have cheered on their country’s new spate of anti-gay laws; and Rick Scarborough, who claims that AIDS is God’s punishment for homosexuality.

Also joining the defense of the World Congress of Families are the Family Research Council’s Patrick Fagan, the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, former House majority leader Tom Delay, the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Benjamin Bull, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, along with a number of international allies of WCF.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Campaign has just released a new report detailing WCF’s support for repressive anti-gay laws throughout the world.

Tom DeLay: 'Let's Bring Jesus Christ Back Into Our Political System,' Just Like God Intended

A few weeks ago, Tom DeLay joined Rick Scarborough and others for a "Give Me Liberty" event at a church in Florida. While Scarborough used his time on stage to declare that God would be entirely justified for destroying America with a nuclear bomb for its tolerance of homosexuality, DeLay used his time to urge the crowd to "go on the offensive" against the Marxist President Obama by imposing a "revolution for the Constitution" on our political system in order to put Jesus back into our public policy, just as God intended when He wrote the Constitution.

"We've got to rewrite the federal government," DeLay proclaimed. "Let's bring Jesus Christ back into our political system and stand for him unashamedly because none of this is going to happen without God ... And secondly, demand a revolution for the Constitution ... let's impose that on our political system, let's bring it back, the way God intended it and the way God wrote it":

Tom DeLay: 'Liberal Jews' Should Oppose 'Marxist,' Anti-Israel Obama

Tom DeLay stopped by Newsmax TV yesterday to speak with host Steve Malzberg about President Obama’s purported aversion to Israel and the rich.

The former House GOP Majority Leader told Malzberg that “liberal Jews, Democrat Jews in America” need to understand and “never forget that this president, in everything that he has done, he has tried to undermine Israel.”

Earlier this year, Michele Bachmann made similar remarks criticizing Jewish voters for their strong support for Obama.

Later in the Malzberg interview, DeLay railed against Obama as a “socialist” and a “Marxist” who “hates” wealthy Americans: “The guy’s a socialist at the very least and I claim that he’s a Marxist. He was raised a Marxist, his grandparents were Marxists, his mother was Marxist, his fathers were Marxists, they sent him to Chicago to be trained and educated in socialism, we all know that this president is a Marxist.”

Tom DeLay Wants To 'Take Our Schools Back' Because 'Our Children Are Being Brainwashed By The Left'

Hopeful that “young people are seeing the ‘Obamanation’ and they don’t like it,” former House GOP leader Tom DeLay is calling on conservatives to “take our schools back” from left-wing brainwashers.

“Our children are being brainwashed by the left in our universities and in our public schools, and I hope the next president of the United States will realize that we have to pay attention to what is going on in our schools and what is happening to our children,” he said in his weekly commentary for the Washington Times last week.

DeLay also said he agreed with a recent Pat Buchanan column calling on Republicans to “drop the talk of impeachment.”

He noted that discussions over impeaching and removing President Obama from office should only happen after the 2014 elections: “The American people need to speak, and when they speak then you can make those decisions early next year as to what to do about it. I agree with pat, this is not the time to be talking about impeachment. Even though I’d love to impeach him, I’d love to remove him from office.”

Tom DeLay Hails Eric Cantor's Loss As A Victory For Christian 'Spiritual Revival'

Former GOP House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is praising the primary defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor, who before becoming majority leader himself was involved in one of DeLay’s casino gambling campaign financing schemes, as a victory for a Christian revolution.

DeLay told the Washington Times’ Andy Parks today that far-right challenger David Brat’s victory was a “spiritual revival” and a sign that pastors and “a lot of Christians that had never been elections before got involved” in politics.

“I’m not trying to be arrogant or a know-it-all but this is what I’ve been calling for well over a year now: spiritual revival and a revolution for the Constitution. I saw this as a manifestation of that,” DeLay said. “As I travel around the country what I hear from people, particularly Christians, is that they want to bring God back into the public arena, they want a revolution for the Constitution, they want constitutional government and they have a huge thirst for leadership.”

DeLay also described Cantor’s defeat as a loss for the progressive movement and the separation of church and state. Cantor, the only Jewish Republican in Congress, was actually a reliable Religious Right ally.

“People of faith are standing up now and they’re saying no more, enough is enough, we’re going to fight for what we believe in, we’re going to fight for our Christian — Judeo-Christian — values and we’re not going to take it anymore,” DeLay told Parks. “We need to defeat those who want to get God out of the [public] square and it’s happening, it happened last night with the Brat-Cantor race.”

Tom DeLay Wants House Investigation Into Obama's 'Connections To Radical Islamists,' Suggests Impeachment

Yesterday, ex-House GOP leader Tom DeLay, who is still in court fighting convictions for money laundering and conspiracy, accused President Obama of breaking the law with his deal to release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“This president is undermining the rule of law and the judiciary committee ought to start hearings on it,” DeLay said on his Washington Times radio program, adding that the House may also consider impeaching Obama to serve as a “warning to future presidents” about “undermining the rule of law.”

He also called for a House investigation into Obama’s purported “connections to radical Islamists” and his “leaning and having too much sympathy for radical Islamists.”

DeLay follows in the footsteps of Oliver North, a commentator who also may not have been in the best position to accuse the president of committing a crime.

Tom DeLay Says Americans Will Vote Republican Because They're Rediscovering God

Yesterday on Washington Times Radio’s “Getting It Right,” Tom DeLay predicted big Republican gains in the upcoming midterm elections because Americans are tired of “same-sex marriage and abortion” and angry that “politicians pushed God out of the public sphere.”

“People are finally understanding that they have got to bring God back into the mix of politics and what’s going on in the civil government,” the increasingly televangelistic former House GOP leader said.

“I’m really seeing a spiritual revival, a constitutional revival, people may not know it or may not be able to articulate it, but they have a sense of what is right and what is truth and they’re grabbing a hold of that and they’re running with it and I’m very excited about it.”

Tom DeLay And Reince Priebus Wonder Why The Obamas Keep Mentioning Race

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said in an interview yesterday that First Lady Michelle Obama was promoting “racism” when she pointed out in a commencement address this weekend that there is still segregation and racial inequality in America’s schools.

After playing a clip of the first lady’s speech, Newsmax host Steve Malzberg asked DeLay, “I’m not sure what she’s pushing for. Is she looking for bussing?”

“What she’s pushing for is racism,” DeLay responded. “Michelle Obama and Barack Obama can’t do anything unless there’s a certain amount of race involved in it.”

While DeLay conceded that there are racial inequalities in some “inner cities,” he blamed that “leftist organizations” who have “have completely destroyed the education system.”

“Mostly around the country, race has no part being played in our education system,” he claimed. He speculated that the Obamas talk about racial inequality “because it keeps people motivated to see their point of view, they’re world of view, and follow them right over the cliff.”

Malzberg continued on the subject in an interview with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.

Quoting Attorney General Eric Holder’s remark that “outbursts of bigotry” like Donald Sterling’s can be less harmful than the “subtle racism” of “policies that impede equal opportunity,” Malzberg told Priebus, “It just seems that this is a Justice Department that is 100 percent only involved with race, racial issues. And one way!”

“Yeah, it is interesting that you point it out that way. There’s so many examples of that in regard to how Eric Holder runs the department,” Priebus agreed. He then suggested that racial inequality in public schools could be eliminated through school voucher programs.

The DOJ is currently working in Lousiana to make sure a school voucher program isn’t increasing segregation

Tom DeLay Fails Miserably In His Attempt To Defend His 'God Wrote The Constitution' Claim

Today, Tom DeLay appeared on "WallBuilders Live" to defend himself from the mockery he received for having declared earlier this year that God founded America and wrote the Constitution, telling host Rick Green that God is going to use conservative Christians to lead "a revolution for the Constitution."

During the conversation, DeLay repeated his claim that "the Constitution was created by God" and then noted that he came under attack from the Left for saying this not too long ago even though, he insisted, he was absolutely right.

"Alexander Hamilton himself said that the Declaration and the Constitution were written as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature by the hand of divinity itself," DeLay triumphantly declared. "So I'm just quoting him":

Hamilton did, in fact, make such a statement when he wrote:

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.

You will notice that, contrary to DeLay's assertion, there is no mention of either the Declaration or the Constitution anywhere in Hamilton's statement ... and that is because Hamilton wrote the line in his work "The Famer Refuted," which was published in February 1775.

The drafting of the Declaration of Independence did not even begin until well over a year after Hamilton published these words and the Constitution wasn't to be written for another twelve years.

It seems particularly appropriate that DeLay would make this laughable defense on WallBuilders of all places, since false history is their specialty.

Tom DeLay Salutes Cliven Bundy For 'Standing Up For The Rule Of Law,' Fears Government Will Incite Violence Against Bundy Family

On his Washington Times Radio show last Wednesday, former House GOP leader Tom DeLay reiterated his defense of Cliven Bundy, arguing that the Nevada rancher — who has repeatedly lost in the courts and refuses to recognize the existence of the United States government — doesn’t have to obey the law on land use.

“He doesn’t owe the federal government anything because he doesn’t recognize that the federal government can come take his livelihood away from him and he’s standing up for the rule of law, the real law, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and fighting against what is happening to him,” DeLay said.

“The oppression and the tyranny that is coming from our government is just outrageous…. The federal government is building its weapons of oppression and tyranny as we speak.”

DeLay also warned that the government may incite “violence” against “law-abiding American citizens to affect their tyranny.”

“This could get really out of hand, and I’m just really worried with the kind of attitude that this government has that they’re going to come back and do some real harm to the Bundy family and the others that are standing up for their rights,” he said.

Tom DeLay Hails 'Americans Picking Up Arms In Nevada' To Fight 'Lawless' Obama And His 'Tyranny'

Speaking with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday, former House GOP leader Tom DeLay said that President Obama’s “lawlessness” is prompting people to take up arms in Nevada to defend rancher Cliven Bundy, whose refusal to abide by court orders or recognize the federal government has turned him into a right-wing hero.

DeLay told Malzberg that Obama is ushering in “tyranny” and that he is “just shocked by [Obama’s] complete disregard or love for this country and the people that live in it.”

Later, while discussing rules changes on clemency for non-violent drug offenders, he encouraged House Republicans to cut off funding to the White House: “Cut him off, cut off the funds, use the power of the purse coming from the House of Representatives, start holding hearings about his lawlessness, bring it to the American people through this next election.”

“This is getting so far out of hand we see Americans picking up arms in Nevada because of government tyranny, this is getting out of hand,” DeLay said. “When people are taking up arms that means that the federal government and people like Obama and Holder have gone too far.”

DeLay: Americans Have Forgotten That God Wrote The Constitution

As we noted earlier this year, Matthew Hagee has been hosting a weekly talk show called "The Difference" where he interviews people like Rick Santorum and now Tom DeLay, who declared that a lot of the problems in America can be traced back to the moment when "we allowed our government to become a secular government."

DeLay said that Americans have forgotten "that God created this nation [and] that He wrote the Constitution, that it's based on biblical principles," but he is also optimistic that the tide is beginning to shift, noting that when he was in Congress, he sealed off the rotunda in the Capitol building so that leaders from Congress could come together for three hours to get on their knees and seek the face of God.

"And I really feel now," DeLay said, "that the Lord has heard us and I see the Holy Spirit moving":
