Pat Boone: The Government Should Outlaw Blasphemy And Punish Saturday Night Live If It Blasphemes Again

Conservative musician and activist Pat Boone has been on the warpath against Saturday Night Live ever since the program aired a sketch parodying the right-wing’s persecution complex, criticizing the show’s cast members as Satanic and bound for hell.

In an interview last night with Alan Colmes, Boone said that “there should be regulations that prohibit blasphemy” and that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should punish networks that air such blasphemous programming.

When Colmes asked if he would “like the FCC to declare that a show like Saturday Night Live or any other show can’t do that kind of humor,” Boone agreed: “You cannot do blasphemy, yes.”

Boone, insisting that “at least 90 percent of the American public” wants this kind of censorship, specifically said that SNL or any program that calls “God by some profane name” would be in violation of such a blasphemy restriction, and that those who commit the offense should lose their license.

Boone, a birther conspiracy theorist, also lashed out at the media, claiming that members of the media are covering up the truth about the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate.

He said that he personally asked Donald Trump why he doesn’t talk about the president’s birth certificate as much as he did in the past and “he said, ‘Look, I’ve taken a lot of heat for this and I don’t want to deal with it anymore.’”

Now, Boone lamented, no one wants to address the “legitimate questions” about the birth certificate “because nobody wants to face the ridicule.”

Kobach: Maybe Obama Opposes Proof Of Citizenship Laws Because He's Not A Citizen

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the influential anti-immigration operative who has been involved in both Donald Trump’s border wall policy and the immigration case currently before the Supreme Court, called into question President Obama’s birthplace on his radio program this weekend.

In response to a caller who wondered if the Obama administration’s opposition to restrictive voting laws such as a proof-of-citizenship requirement in Kansas is because the president himself is “not a citizen of the United States,” Kobach said that there are “interesting things” about the question of Obama’s citizenship that “just made you scratch your head.” He added that “maybe” the caller’s theory about the president’s opposition to voting restrictions was correct.

Kobach was speaking on his radio program on Kansas City’s KCMO on Sunday about a column in the Kansas City Star — which Kobach calls the “Kansas City Red Star” — blasting him for his role in enacting restrictive voting laws in Kansas and around the nation, when a listener identified as “Jim from Iowa” called in.

Jim told Kobach he didn’t understand “what the big deal” was about a law championed by Kobach requiring people to present proof of citizenship when registering to vote “because our president, his little grandma said he was born in Africa, he waited two years before he sent out that fake birth certificate, he got a scholarship to a place, a college in California that only gives it to foreigners, so what’s the difference?”

(Just to be clear, Obama’s grandmother did not say he was born in Kenya,his birth certificate is not fake, and he did not get a scholarship meant for foreign students.)

At first, Kobach didn’t address the birther issue, noting instead that Obama is indeed “opposed to Kansas” and “doesn’t like voter ID laws.”

But the caller persisted, saying, “He’s not going to bring up proof of citizenship because he’s not a citizen of the United States, he’s not supposed to be the president, his own grandma said he was born in Africa, what else do you need? And that birth certificate thing was all fake, it took him two years, like I said, to get it sent out. How did he get the scholarship to that college in California that only foreign people get it? How did he get that? How come everybody lets it go?”

“You know, you’re right,” Kobach responded, “and of course that issue’s kind of water under the bridge these days, but there were some interesting things. Like there was that one thing, it just made you scratch your head, there was that one thing that the Harvard Law Journal printed which described Barack Obama as a ‘young student born in Kenya.’ Now, he says that was wrong, and maybe it was wrong, but anyway, maybe you’re right, maybe that’s why he doesn’t talk about proof of citizenship, because he, you know, he would rather not bring up the citizenship issue. Of course, now he’s got nothing to worry about, he’s in office for the remaining year.”

(We don’t know what head-scratching “Harvard Law Journal” article Kobach was referring to, but he could have been getting it mixed up with a promotional flier for one of Obama’s books that mistakenly described him as being born in Kenya, which birthers have made much of.)

When Jim asked if Obama could still “get in trouble” for lying about his birthplace, Kobach responded that “at this point there’s not really any forum in which the facts will be further” examined.

“Well, why didn’t everybody do something about this eight years ago?” Jim demanded.

“Well,” Kobach said, “as you may recall, there was quite a kerfuffle about it back then.”

“Did you notice everybody that was complaining, they shut up like overnight?” Jim said. “I think they were all threatened just like Old Lady Clinton threatens everybody if you don’t do what she wants. I think they’re all threatened, that’s why they all shut up real fast.”

“Well, who knows?” Kobach said. “That whole issue has been a truly strange one, that’s for sure.”

Perhaps they will have to wait until Trump, Kobach’s preferred candidate for president, fulfills his promise to write a book about Obama’s real birthplace.

Ted Cruz Adds Birther, Anti-Muslim Conspiracy Theorist To His Campaign

Ted Cruz has continued to reach out to extremists that even other Republicans wouldn’t dare touch, today appointing Frank Gaffney, an activist so bizarre that even the American Conservative Union issued a blistering report criticizing him for making outlandish claims, to his campaign’s foreign policy advisory board.

Gaffney, who heads the Center for Security Policy, has alleged that “there is mounting evidence that the president not only identifies with Muslims, but actually may still be one himself,” calling President Obama “America’s first Muslim president.”

Indeed, Gaffney believes that Obama may not just be a secret Muslim but also an Islamist bent on aiding “Islamic supremacists” and instituting “the Sharia blasphemy agenda of our enemies” in the U.S., comparing the president to Osama bin Laden.

Among Obama’s secret Islamist crimes? Gaffney once claimed that what was clearly a rocket on a redesigned Missile Defense Agency logo was actually an Islamic crescent that was created on orders from Obama. He claims that the president wants to overturn the Citizens United decision in order to ban anti-Muslim speech and believes that Obama is trying to give control over the Internet to an Islamic group.

He told one radio host that “the Obama administration is … well, they’re playing for the other team” and “providing aid and comfort to enemies of the United States. And that is the definition, as you know, of treason.”

It shouldn’t be surprising that Gaffney had his fingers all over the smear campaign targeting Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin for supposedly being a Muslim Brotherhood agent. He even accused New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of committing “misprision of treason” for appointing a Muslim to a state judgeship.

If this smells like a McCarthyist push against Muslims serving in government, you’re right, as Gaffney has called for Congress to establish a House Anti-American Activities Committee to investigate those in government who are secretly aiding Islamists.

It is a bit ironic, though, that Gaffney would join the Canadian-born Cruz’s presidential campaign, since Gaffney has pushed the birther conspiracy theory that Obama was born abroad and is therefore ineligible to serve as president.

One of Gaffney’s colleagues, Clare Lopez, who also joined Cruz’s campaign team, is such a conspiracy theorist that she can’t decide whether Obama is a secret Sunni Muslim radical or a secret Shiite Iran-lover. Also joining the Cruz campaign is Andy McCarthy, who defended Donald Trump’s ban on the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims from entering the U.S. by stating that Islam is not a religion.

Of course, Cruz has echoed many of Gaffney’s own claims, baselessly asserting that the Obama administration imposed a “ban on anti-Muslim rhetoric” and secretly aids terrorism. Cruz also spearheaded a McCarthy-esque campaign against then-secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel, joining Gaffney in wondering if Hagel was an agent for America’s enemies.

And that’s what is truly scary.

Birther Joseph Farah: Canadian-Born Ted Cruz Can Run For President Because He 'Loves America'

We could only laugh when Joseph Farah, the editor of WorldNetDaily and one of the most vocal anti-Obama birthers, decided to endorse Ted Cruz, a candidate for president who, unlike President Obama, was actually born abroad.

Farah has devoted years of activism to claiming that Obama was ineligible to serve as president because he was purportedly born outside of the U.S., floating the conspiracy theory that the president was secretly born in Kenya:

Why won’t a birth hospital in Hawaii come forward to verify the historic event – the birth of the baby who would become the first black president? Why the secrecy even after Obama wrote a public letter to the hospital claiming to have been born there?

Let me just say this in closing: The Constitution is precious. It is the basis for the rule of law in America. If we discount clear provisions like the one offered in Article 2, Section 1 on presidential eligibility, we might as well scrap the document altogether and just allow ourselves to be ruled by men, rather than law.

Farah even said that he wouldn’t support fellow conservatives like Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal because, according to him, they are “by chance of birth, 100 percent, totally and inarguably ineligible” to be president since “both are sons of parents who were not U.S. citizens when they were born.”

But it appears that Farah has abandoned his own stance, arguing in his latest column that Cruz is eligible to serve as president, despite his Canadian birthplace, because the Texas senator “loves America” and he “could never say that about Obama.”

You will not hear me criticize Trump. I agree with him on much of what he says. He’s brutally honest. His presence in this race has been healthy for the country. If he should win the nomination, I would enthusiastically support him.

But Ted Cruz has a clearer vision for America. He is dependable based on his life experience and his consistent rhetoric.

He is the antithesis of Obama, Hillary and Sanders. And that’s what America needs.

Many have asked me, “What about the question of constitutional eligibility?”

My answer is direct: Obama and the establishment media have made a mockery of the Constitution in many ways, but none more than their attacks on the “natural born citizen” requirement. So much damage was done to that simple clause in the last eight years, I don’t believe there’s any going back.

You can’t even have a serious conversation about the eligibility issue any longer. So be it.

What I do know is that Ted Cruz loves America.

I could never say that about Obama.

The eligibility requirement of the Constitution was intended to protect the nation from foreign corruption, entanglements, intrigue, suspicion and conflicts of interest.

I don’t believe anyone in their right mind thinks Ted Cruz has any allegiance to either Canada or Cuba. This guy loves America with all of his heart, mind and soul.

Birther Leader Joseph Farah Endorses Canadian-Born Ted Cruz For President

After spending years falsely claiming that President Obama was born abroad — mostly likely in Kenya — and is therefore ineligible to serve as president, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah today endorsed Ted Cruz for president.

Cruz, unlike Obama, was actually born abroad, and his Canadian birth has become an issue in the campaign thanks to Farah’s fellow birther, Donald Trump.

But apparently this inconvenient fact doesn’t seem to bother Farah, who in his endorsement didn’t even try to explain why he’s backing someone who doesn’t meet his eligibility criteria — despite obsessing over Obama’s imagined birth outside of the U.S.

That’s why it’s time for Republicans to stop eating their own. To win in November will require unity among the top vote-getters and a healing of the bad feelings of record numbers of GOP voters who turned out in what is the equivalent of a grass-roots rebellion against establishment, business-as-usual politics.

I am preparing myself for what appears to be inevitable – nominee Trump or nominee Cruz. Who is my preference?

I think Ted Cruz’s history demonstrates he has the clearest, most Reaganesque vision of where the country needs to go in its much-needed recovery from eight years of Barack Obama. Cruz is principled, sophisticated and a solid conservative whose understanding of and commitment to the Constitution is unshakeable.

At a time when one of the three branches of the federal government, the Supreme Court, hangs in the balance, it is Ted Cruz who, without question, can be counted upon to nominate justices who will uphold the high standards of Antonin Scalia and the originalists.

Ted Cruz is the real deal. That’s not to slight Donald Trump, who has played an invaluable role in this campaign – breaking the back of political correctness, presenting a positive vision forward for America and standing up to those who would prefer to see the nation borderless and rudderless.

If Trump turns out to be the winner of the GOP nomination, I will unhesitatingly support him.

But it’s time to choose – between two.

For me the choice is clear – Ted Cruz.



America, as we have known it, simply can’t survive another corrupt and lawless White House – not four years and certainly not eight years. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who have far more common ground than differences, need to start the healing process in the best interests of the country.

Maddow Calls Out Trump For Embracing Conspiracy Site

Last night, Rachel Maddow called out Donald Trump for touting the “amazing honor to be named man of the year” by the far-right conspiracy theory site WorldNetDaily. She noted that while Trump has gone silent about his discredited birther conspiracy theory, which he raised when floating the idea of a campaign against President Obama in 2012, he is proud to stand with WorldNetDaily, which is “the headquarters for the Obama birth certificate conspiracy theory.”

She also mentioned our report on Trump’s planned appearance at an event honoring Joseph Farah, the site’s founder and a fellow birther.

“That belief of [Trump’s], his association with the whole birther conspiracy theory movement, that was crazy to the point of journalists laughing in his face about it in 2011,” Maddow said. “Now, though, he is the prohibitive frontrunner to be the Republican presidential candidate this year, even though noting about him has changed.”

Maddow mentioned one of our favorite conspiracy theories from WorldNetDaily’s top reporter Jerome Corsi: that Obama is in an Islamic gay marriage to his Pakistani college roommate.

Corsi has also reported that Obama may have killed his former gay lovers and wears a ring containing the Muslim statement of faith. After it turned out that Corsi mistook a series of loops on the ring for the Shahada, the Islamic declaration of faith, he insisted that the White House must have “tried to alter the ring.”

WorldNetDaily’s unhinged hatred of Obama doesn’t just include wild birther claims.

The site has suggested that Obama is “the biblical Lord of the Flies” and “possessed by a demonic entity,” as evidenced by his “long history of attracting flies.” The site was also very alarmed by a “demon” that Obama encountered during a recent trip to Kenya.

WorldNetDaily is also in the prediction business. The site consulted with a biblical “researcher” before the 2012 election to learn how “hidden texts in the Holy Bible indicate Mitt Romney will be America’s next president”; insisted that a biblical formula revealed that September 13, 2015, would be a day of “disaster”; envisioned “a pilgrimage by millions of Americans” out of the country as a result of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling; predicted that Obama would personally meet and negotiate with Osama bin Laden; warned that Obama is setting the stage for mass imprisonmentsfood shortagesconcentration camps and the next Holocaust; and wondered if the president would build the Death Star.

Trump has also lavished praise on fringe conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who, like WorldNetDaily, believes that there is a concerted effort to turn kids gay through the food supply.

WorldNetDaily Names Trump 'Man Of The Year,' Compares Him To Founding Fathers

Yesterday, we noted that Donald Trump will be delivering the keynote address in March at an event honoring WorldNetDaily founder and editor Joseph Farah, who has been a leader in driving birther conspiracy theories about President Obama. Today, WND returns the favor, naming Trump its “ Man of the Year.”

(President Obama already took the “Muslim of the Year” honor from WND columnist Larry Klayman.)

Trump told WND that the recognition was an “honor” and that he appreciates the publication’s “informative polls and coverage.” (We’ve compiled some highlights of that “coverage” here.) From WND:

They treated his campaign announcement as a joke. They tried to destroy his business. They called him every foul name they could come up with. But at the end of 2015, the biased journalists, political consultants, leftist activists, snarky comedians and embittered critics of every stripe had to concede one man had beaten them all.

Donald J. Trump is the Republican favorite for president of the United States. There’s no indication he’ll fall from the top spot any time soon. And he’s the WND 2015 Man of the Year.

“It is my great honor to be named Man of the Year by your publication,” Trump said in a statement to WND. “I very much appreciate your informative polls and coverage. Together, we will Make America Great Again.”

WND specifically praised Trump for having “changed the accepted history of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by forcing the media to report Muslim celebrations in the United States that day.” In fact, the media has repeatedly debunked Trump’s claim that he saw “thousands and thousands” of American Muslims celebrating the 9/11 attacks in New Jersey.

“Has any personality ever dominated the news more than Donald Trump did in 2015?” asked WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah. “I don’t think I’ve seen it in my lifetime. That’s why there can be no question about who 2015′s Man of the Year is – at least not if we’re being honest. He didn’t just change the debate, he became the debate. And there doesn’t seem to be any let-up in sight as we move into the presidential election year of 2016.”

As Farah observed, Trump has done what almost no other conservative has ever been able to accomplish by repeatedly forcing the mainstream media to back down. As he repeatedly brags, Trump turned immigration into a central issue in the Republican primary. Trump shifted the national conversation on terrorism by calling for a ban on Muslim immigration. He even changed the accepted history of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by forcing the media to report Muslim celebrations in the United States that day.

WND even throws in some positive words for Trump from its chief birther correspondent Jerome Corsi, who, in addition to his crusade to prove that the president is lying about his birthplace, also thinks that Obama wears a ring from a secret marriage to his male Pakistani roommate. Corsi declares that Trump is “one of those rare people who appear in U.S. history as the right guy for the times” and that if he had lived during the American Revolution, he would have been “leading the Boston Tea Party and joining Sam Adams and Thomas Paine” in forming a new nation.

WND Senior Staff Writer and longtime political observer Jerome Corsi says Trump is the “real deal.”

He told WND: “Despite how much the Obama/Clinton leftists in the Democratic Party and the D.C. establishment leadership of the GOP hate Trump, he is not going away, he is not going to drop out, and he is positioned to win the GOP nomination and the White House despite all odds.”

Corsi believes Donald Trump is “one of those rare people who appear in U.S. history as the right guy for the times.”

“If these were the days of the American Revolution,” Corsi said, “Trump would be leading the Boston Tea Party and joining Sam Adams and Thomas Paine in carving the political room for a rebirth of the type of constitutional freedom our Founding Fathers had envisioned for the American Republic.”

Today’s challenge, Corsi stated, is political correctness. And Donald Trump is just the man to destroy it.

“Trump will succeed precisely because he is politically incorrect, because he dares to say what most Americans are thinking,” Corsi argued. “Calling Trump sexist, racist, and every phobe the leftist intolerant political ideologies can generate only boosts his popularity, as the mainstream media lose their power to control the news by calling their enemies a nasty name. He’s rising in the polls because he defies the politically correct rules ordained by pundits and exposes leftists – including those at Fox News – for what they are.”

Corsi, author of “What Went Wrong: Inside the GOP Debacle of 2012 and How It Can Be Avoided Next Time,” also says pundits are underestimating Trump’s chances to win both the primary and the general election.

“Trump will attract votes from women, Hispanics, and African-Americans,” Corsi predicted. “He has done more to improve the economic status of minorities in America than all the other candidates combined – in both the GOP and among the Democrats.”

Trump To Speak At Event Honoring Birther Publisher Joseph Farah

Donald Trump may not spend as much time talking about President Obama’s birth certificate now that he’s the Republican presidential frontrunner, but that doesn’t meant that he’s given up his birther sympathies.

The far-right outlet WorldNetDaily reported over the weekend that Trump and his fellow GOP candidate Mike Huckabee are both confirmed to speak at the Western Center for Journalism’s Western Conservative Conference in Scottsdale in March, at which Rush Limbaugh will present Joseph Farah, the founder of the Western Center and of WND, with the center’s “Hero of Freedom Award.” An invitation says that Trump will deliver the keynote address at the event, which is being co-chaired by Arizona Republican Reps. Matt Salmon and Paul Gosar and will also feature Rep. Trent Franks.

Farah, along with WND “reporter” Jerome Corsi, has been one of the most enthusiastic pushers of the birther myth, writing as recently as this month that Trump was right to call Obama’s birth certificate a “fake” and wondering if the promise of a payout late in life might prompt Obama to finally reveal the truth behind his “eligibility scam.”

Back in 2011, Farah credited Trump with raising the profile of Corsi’s book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” (published by WND), which debuted on the best seller list shortly after President Obama publicly released a copy of his birth certificate. Even after Obama made the certificate public, Farah said he was suspicious of its authenticity and added that even if it was authentic, Obama could be ineligible for the presidency anyway since his father was born abroad. (Farah quickly forgot his concerns when the Canadian-born Ted Cruz, who also has one foreign-born parent, started talking about running for president.)

You could argue that WorldNetDaily was a precursor to the Trump era, as the site became a place where the Republican establishment mingled with wild conspiracy theories and racist fearmongering. Along with the birther story, WND helped drive the Jade Helm 15 panic and has run stories alleging that Obama is building “FEMA concentration camps,” is planning the next Holocaust and wears a secret Muslim wedding ring. The outlet has entertained claims that gay men were behind the Holocaust and once ran a six-part series arguing that soy turns kids gay. WND frequently fuels racial panic, such as with an article it published on its front page yesterday with the banner headline “Coming To Your Suburb: The Ghettos. Thanks, Obama!” At the same time, the outlet frequently interviews GOP members of Congress and has published articles written by presidential candidates.

The Western Conservative Conference will also feature another prominent birther, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was honored at last year’s event with a roast full of racist jokes.

Birther Leader Hopes Obama Will One Day Admit He Was Born In Kenya For Millions Of Dollars

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is quite pleased that the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump, is a birther, but would like to remind everybody that he and fellow WND “reporter” Jerome Corsi were the driving force behind the conspiracy theory that President Obama is ineligible to be president.

Farah writes today that while the GOP-led Congress will never get to the bottom of the “fake” birth certificate, “maybe history will judge Obama more honestly.”

“Maybe 20 years from now, when it no longer matters, the truth will come out about his eligibility scam,” he continued. “Maybe Obama himself will get millions of dollars by revealing it all in his memoirs.”

Obama’s legion of minions, by the way, still claim to this day that Trump’s repeated calls for Obama to release his birth certificate also “disqualify” him from running for president.

One in-the-tank supporter, Gloria Steinem, had this to say: “He was a birther. He should be disqualified on the single fact he was accusing President Obama of not being a legitimate president. He was like chief of the birthers!”

Actually, Trump wasn’t the chief. That role would belong to one of two people – me or, my colleague, Jerome Corsi, who wrote the bestselling book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” The rise of that book to No. 1 on Amazon prompted Obama to the desperate measure of manufacturing a long-form birth certificate.

Trump rightly called that document a “fake” at the time.



Trump spoke the truth when he called Obama a liar. Haven’t we figured out by now that Obama lies easily, prolifically and instinctively? Isn’t that how he achieved the presidency – legally or not?

It’s hardly just Obamacare that Obama lied about. It’s everything – everything! As impostor president, he has created with his shameless, flagrant, incessant dishonesty a kind of national virtual reality. I don’t even think he knows what truth is – or cares.

The tragic part is that his beloved followers do not know the truth or care about it, either. They are like mirror images of the fraud they helped empower – the epic sham they helped perpetuate.

It’s probably too late to do anything about the Obama fraud.

He’s got just a little over a year left in office. The Republican Congress has no stomach for holding him accountable in the slightest way. They continue to write him blank checks to finish the job of “fundamentally transforming America,” running up deficits in the process. If Obama committed a high crime on live television, they wouldn’t move for impeachment.



Maybe history will judge Obama more honestly. Maybe 20 years from now, when it no longer matters, the truth will come out about his eligibility scam. Maybe Obama himself will get millions of dollars by revealing it all in his memoirs.

Marco Rubio Picks Anti-Gay Birther To Chair Alabama Campaign

Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign announced last week that its operation in Alabama would be chaired by state Rep. Will Ainsworth and former state Republican Party chairman Bill Armistead, according to AL.com.

The choice of Armistead and Ainsworth is slightly surprising from a candidate who is trying to position himself in contrast to some of his more far-right competitors in the GOP race.

We first encountered Armistead in the lead-up to the 2012 election, when he urged an audience to watch the insane birther film “Dreams From My Real Father,” which posits that President Obama has been hiding the fact that his real father was labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, who groomed him from birth to stage a communist takeover of America. “This is absolutely frightening,” Armistead told the audience. “I’ve seen it. I verified that it is factual, all of it. People can determine.”

Armistead is also apparently a fan of the work of another anti-Obama conspiracy theorist, Wayne Allyn Root, once distributing to the state party’s email list a column by Root alleging that the president is a clinically diagnosable sociopath.

Armistead is not a fan of LGBT rights, either, writing on the state party’s website earlier this year that Alabama risked inviting "God’s wrath" if it accepted marriage equality:

So, how is it that God’s truth can be turned on its head as the debate now rages in Alabama regarding the meaning of marriage? The answer is that we, as a society, have become our own god. We have made God in our image. But, God will not be mocked. The State of Alabama and the United States of America will reap God’s wrath if we embrace and condone things that are abhorrent to God, such as redefining marriage as anything other than a union between one man and one woman.

Ainsworth, the Rubio campaign’s other Alabama co-chair, takes a similar view of marriage equality. In February, he urged a probate judge in his district to defy a lower federal court ruling requiring the state to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, saying that officials should follow “God’s law, not the unconstitutional and immoral law being manufactured by liberal activists”:

"The probate judge in Marshall County, who is a Democrat, must not capitulate to the ungodly and immoral attacks on traditional marriage," he continued. "If I were in his shoes, I would stand strong and hold my ground in defense of God's law, not the unconstitutional and immoral law being manufactured by liberal activists."

"Marriage can exist only between a man and a woman because it is an institution created and ordained by God, and it is the analogy he used for salvation," Ainsworth said. "Every society that has allowed the marriage covenant to be destroyed has withered away and vanished. I do not believe we should hate homosexuals because every person should be treated with love and respect, but something that is immoral does not become moral simply because an activist judge decided it is legal."

Ainsworth commented on many new writer and politicians saying Alabama needs to avoid "being on the wrong side of history" in trying to prevent gay marriage.

"If the choice is between being on the wrong side of a distorted, immoral, liberal perception of history, or violating God's laws, teachings, and biblical admonitions, I will happily disappoint the liberals every time," Ainsworth said. "During the campaign, my signs carried the slogan 'Fight Obama,' and, make no mistake, the gay rights agenda is the bedrock of Obama's agenda. I will use the upcoming session to look for every legislative remedy and tool that can be used to protect our traditional, conservative Alabama values, and I will continue the fight even after others have surrendered."

After the Supreme Court struck down same-sex marriage bans nationwide, Ainsworth said, “God has told us that marriage exists only between a man and a woman, and His ruling supersedes any ruling by nine appointed judges.”

Birther Investigators Have 'Universe-Shattering' Evidence, But They're Keeping It A Secret

WorldNetDaily provides us today with an update on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate, which apparently is still going strong despite a failure to release a piece of “universe-shattering” evidence that we were first promised in 2013. Arpaio’s chief investigator, Mike Zullo, tells WND that unspecified legal issues mean that this very important piece of evidence may not ever actually see “the light of day”:

What ever happened to the “universe-shattering” revelation promised by the sheriff’s lead investigator, Mike Zullo, in late 2013?

Reached by telephone, Zullo told WND in an interview his Cold Case Posse team commissioned by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office must resolve three legal issues before the new evidence can be revealed regarding the validity of the document posted online by the White House in 2011 as Obama’s birth certificate and a subsequent investigation of its origin.

“We’ve cleared two, and the last one is problematic,” Zullo said of the legal hurdles.

“If we can’t clear it, it may preclude this information from ever reaching the light of day. It may prevent me from ever disclosing what this is. But it does not mean we are not cultivating new evidence.”

Zullo, echoing Arpaio, expressed frustration that congressional Republicans have refused to publicly take up the birther battle. He revealed that he was hopeful after meeting with Florida Republican Rep. Jeff Miller in the U.S. Capitol, but that their agreements “evaporated.”

Arpaio told WND’s Aaron Klein in an interview broadcast Sunday on Klein’s radio show that he’s continuing to investigate the birth certificate, but “once again, nobody wants to look at it right now.”

“So it’s not my problem. I did my job,” said Arpaio, referring to attempts to pass on his evidence to Congress and federal authorities.

Zullo backs up Arpaio’s statement, noting the sheriff authorized him to travel to Washington, D.C., and meet with members of Congress. Zullo said lawmakers have told him they will not look into the matter or that they would be prevented from examining it if they tried.

Zullo said that on one occasion, he was accompanied by author and radio host Carl Gallups, who arranged a meeting with his congressman, Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla.

Zullo and Gallups, who has regularly discussed the Arpaio investigation on his weekly radio show, sat directly across from the congressman in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

“It was almost surreal being in that room discussing this very topic as Nancy Pelosi strutted by,” Zullo said.

The meeting went well, he said, and arrangements were made to move forward.

“Then, within a week, everything came to a halt and just evaporated,” said Zullo, who noted it wasn’t the only time that has happened.

Return Of The Rubio Birthers

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s announcement yesterday that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination has brought back a strain of far-right birtherism that contends that Rubio is not eligible to be president because his parents were not U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.

In its write-up of Rubio’s announcement, birther outlet WorldNetDaily (which has been a big promoter of Ted Cruz’s candidacy) cites unnamed people who “contend Rubio’s not even a natural-born citizen and therefore, ineligible to seek the presidency”:

Meanwhile, others contend Rubio’s not even a natural-born citizen and therefore, ineligible to seek the presidency. Rubio’s parents, as WND previously reported on at least two occasions, were not U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.

Rubio was born in Miami, Florida, on May 28, 1971, to Mario and Oriales Rubio, who were born in Cuba, though the senator has not released his birth certificate for the world to scrutinize.

As WND reported in 2011, Rubio press secretary Alex Burgos said the senator’s parents “were permanent legal residents of the U.S.” at the time Marco was born in 1971.

Then four years after Marco was born, “Mario and Oriales Rubio became naturalized U.S. citizens on Nov. 5, 1975,” Burgos told WND.

WND links to a 2012 article by its chief birther reporter Jerome Corsi, who cited far-right attorney Larry Klayman’s argument that the Constitution “requires a person eligible to be president to be born to parents who are each U.S. citizens at the time of the birth.”

Mainstream legal scholarship — as exhaustively detailed in a 2009 Congressional Research Service memo  and a 2011 report — rejects this, finding that the Constitution merely requires that a president have been eligible for U.S. citizenship at birth. Under Klayman’s rule, not only would President Obama be ineligible for the presidency, but so would Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Cruz.

The website of Bradlee Dean, a longtime Michele Bachmann ally, also published an essay yesterday claiming that Rubio is ineligible for the presidency and calling the senator an “anchor baby.”

Suzanne Hamner writes on Dean’s “Sons of Liberty” website: “If Obama is hailed as the ‘first’ black president, one could say Rubio is the ‘first’ anchor baby contender.”

“Haven’t we, as citizens of this nation, been harmed by the current ineligible occupant of the Oval Office?” she asks.

Wikipedia, while not considered a truly reliable source, states Marco Rubio was born on May 23, 1971, to “Mario Rubio and Oria Garcia” who were Cubans that “immigrated to the United States in 1956 and were naturalized as US citizens in 1975.”

So, Sen. Marco Rubio needs to clearly establish his eligibility to hold the office of the President of the United States in order to receive the party nomination. Neither of Rubio’s parents were citizens of the United States until 1975, four years after Rubio’s birth. Under this scenario, one could acquaint it to the “anchor baby born today being elected president upon reaching the age of thirty-five and living within the US for fourteen years.” Is Marco Rubio comfortable in claiming “natural born” citizen status in order to run for president? Clearly, he is. But, Rubio is ineligible to run and hold the office of the President of the United States. If Obama is hailed as the “first” black president, one could say Rubio is the “first” anchor baby contender. If Rubio is a supporter, protector and defender of the Constitution, he needs to put his money where his mouth is.

Rubio’s supporters, along with those of Ted Cruz, will vehemently defend their candidate’s natural born citizen status regardless of the evidence to the contrary based on history indicating the framers did not subscribe to the natural-born citizen status as being anything but a child born of two citizen parents. Those who admit neither of these two candidates truly meets that all important requirement will declare that “it’s our turn,” “the Dems did it with Obama, so can we,” or “they would be better than Obama.” The problem in all of this remains consistency with the law.

The Democrats cannot protest as it would confirm that Obama would be ineligible thereby exposing the criminal, lawless, treasonous activities of the Democratic National Committee, key Democrats in Congress, such as Pelosi, the Republican National Committee, key Republicans in Congress, RINOs and complicity of the state governments in allowing Obama on the ticket, not to mention the numerous judges at every level who have upheld Obama’s eligibility. And, why would judges refuse to hear valid legal arguments opposing Obama’s eligibility if the definition of “natural born citizen” did not mean an individual born to two citizen parents?

Judges have denied hearing the case based on “standing” and “establishment of harm.” Isn’t every US citizen harmed by an individual holding the office of the President when eligibility is in question? Shouldn’t every US citizen have “standing” in a case such as this? It would mean the President has divided loyalty and would possibly not conduct business within the confines of the Constitution nor have the best interest of the country at heart. Are we not actually witness to that with Obama? Haven’t we, as citizens of this nation, been harmed by the current ineligible occupant of the Oval Office?

Birther Joseph Farah Wants PFAW Help To Block Third Obama Term. Let’s Make A Deal.

Last Friday, Miranda noted that birther, conspiracy theorist par excellence, and WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah was publicizing one of the more ridiculous right-wing scare-stories: that President Obama will refuse to leave the White House after his second term is over in January 2017. Farah said in a column last week that “there’s great concern” about the possibility “out there across the fruited plain.”

In classic Fox News and far-right trolling style, Farah said he didn’t actually believe Obama would refuse to leave office, but was just asking questions: why should we should take a departure for granted given what he calls Obama’s “contempt of the law” and “disrespect for American tradition” – and “the ever-present reality that Obama himself may not even be constitutionally eligible for office.”  

Farah was seemingly not pleased that RWW poked fun at his column, responding over the weekend with an appeal to another unimpeachable source of information on the president’s plans, Rush Limbaugh.  Limbaugh, says Farah, responded to a Friday caller raising the same question by spinning out a hypothetical scenario in which Obama refuses to go. Here’s Limbaugh:

“So as a service to the nation, he is going to forget the 22nd Amendment and either not leave office or run for re-election himself as the Democrat nominee. Just imagine that scenario. I don’t care how unreal it sounds, how unbelievable it sounds. Imagine it.

What would anybody do? What would Mitch McConnell do? What would John Boehner do?

Adds Farah,

“There’s simply no organized opposition to Obama’s illegal, criminal actions and behavior. He’s getting away with all of it. There are no serious repercussions. No political price. No major media opposition. Few judicial rulings that worry him. Not one political, religious or social institution that is holding him accountable – least of all the Republican Party."

Farah was apparently bothered that Miranda’s RWW post did not include a pledge that People For the American Way would “use all of its influence and legal firepower” to stop Obama from chucking the Constitution in a White House power-grab. Of course we don’t take the possibility seriously, but since Farah seems to, let’s offer him a proposition: If President Obama refuses to allow a constitutional transfer of power to his successor, we will join you at the barricades. If the American republic miraculously survives, you will stop polluting the public discourse with toxic nonsense. Deal? 

Joseph Farah Is 'Just Asking': Will Obama Actually Leave Office In January 2017?

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah personally believes that President Obama will leave office when his second term is up in January 2017, but senses that “there is great concern out there across the fruited plain” that the president will try to stay in office permanently, so he evidently considers it his journalistic duty to explore why this conspiracy theory may be true.

“[W]hy do we assume Obama will step aside willingly from the presidency following an election in 2016?” Farah asks in a column today. “I’m not saying he won’t. I’m just asking why.”

Farah then goes on to cite evidence of Obama’s possible power grab, including that the president that “respects neither the law nor the American tradition of peaceful changes of power,” has said “he and his family might remain in Washington after leaving office,” and, of course, “the ever-present reality that Obama himself may not even be constitutionally eligible for office.”

Question: Why are Americans so certain there will be a presidential election in 2016 and that Barack Obama will leave office in January 2017?

Answer: Because it’s the law and because it’s American tradition.

However, we currently have a man in the White House who respects neither the law nor the American tradition of peaceful changes of power.


And then, of course, there’s the ever-present reality that Obama himself may not even be constitutionally eligible for office. In fact, if he’s telling the truth about his parentage and the “birth certificate” he produced after years of demands from the public is real, he could not possibly be a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.

So with all of this history – and much more, in fact – why do we assume Obama will step aside willingly from the presidency following an election in 2016?

I’m not saying he won’t. I’m just asking why. And judging from the number of questions I’m getting along these lines from the public, I’d say there’s great concern out there across the fruited plain.

Maybe we assume he will respectfully leave office after two terms because he has publicly said he would. In 2013, Obama said he and his family might remain in Washington after leaving office.

But that begs the question of whether Obama is truthful.

Again, do I think Obama will leave office in January 2017? Yes I do.

But, with a track record like this – and, actually much worse – should we simply take it for granted?

Former GOP Senate Candidate Joe Miller Reinvents Himself As Birther Radio Host

Joe Miller, who as the Tea-Party backed Republican Senate candidate in Alaska in 2010 was defeated by a write-in campaign for incumbent Lisa Murkowski, lost his second Senate bid last year and has now apparently decided to reinvent himself as a right-wing radio host.

Last month, Miller launched a radio program that is broadcast online and on a couple of stations in Alaska, and in his first few weeks managed to secure interviews with conservative activists including Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt, Ret. Major General Paul Vallely and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Signaling the ease with which he’s transitioning from a politician to a radio host, Miller also scored interviews with a number of prominent birthers, including WorldNetDaily’s Jerome Corsi, attorney Herb Titus and, of course, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom he thanked for his “admirable” ongoing effort to prove that the president’s birth certificate is a forgery.

Miller told Arpaio that he knows something’s not right with Obama’s record, falsely claiming that the president has spent “millions” to “protect his college records” and that “there’s really no dispute” that “his Selective Service registration card that’s been published is a forgery.”

He added that the media is enforcing a “double standard” in questioning why Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker left college before graduating. “You talk about a double standard. I mean, here you’ve got a media attacking Scott Walker because they don’t know why he left school the last year, and yet they don’t lift a finger on President Obama,” he said.

Arpaio agreed that the president’s background is so questionable that “I don’t think he would be hired in our office when you get right down to it,” and lamented that it’s “a little strange” that he’s the only one investigating the long-moot birth certificate issue.

“It is,” Miller responded. “And any time that you stand up and you say, hey, look, I’m going to stand for what’s right, you end up being the target on it. And the stand that you’ve taken, not just on that issue but on illegal aliens and the other issues you’re facing, are admirable.”

Rick Santorum Birther Joke At CPAC Falls Flat

Rick Santorum worked a few jokes into his CPAC speech today, deriding President Obama as the “weatherman-in-chief” for believing in climate science and even making a birther joke, which was met with tepid applause.

“The Obama-Clinton foreign policy team” has been “disastrous,” Santorum said. “In fact the president’s popularity is so bad around the world today that I heard this report from a source that the Kenyan government is actually developing proof that Barack Obama was actually born in America.”

WND Columnist: 'Congress Must At Once Announce An Investigation' Into Obama's Birth Certificate

Gushing over Republican victories in last week’s election, WorldNetDaily columnist Lord Christopher Monckton hopes that the GOP will immediately go after President Obama’s “bogus ‘birth certificate’ on the crime scene that is the White House website.’”

Monckton, clinging to long-discredited birther conspiracy theories, writes today that “Congress must at once announce an investigation into the forgery” and “take on Mr. Obama and the army of vicious leftists with whom he surrounds.”

Last week, Monckton wondered whether Republicans in Congress have “the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.”

Thanks almost entirely to the backbone inserted into the GOP by the tea-party movement, the Republicans have now captured the Senate as well as increasing their majority in the House. Let them now make the very best use of their victory by making proper preparations to win the third branch of government from the usurper who now clings on in office by his fingernails.



The GOP should aim for nothing less than a balanced budget. That will mean welfare reductions and tax hikes for all, as well as drastic reductions in federal spending. But if America does not recover her economic might, then her descent from superpower to Third World will be swift, painful and humiliating.

Finally, the world’s most flagrant example of in-your-face dishonesty and corruption in government – the bogus “birth certificate” on the crime scene that is the White House website – must be firmly dealt with.

I know not whether Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii. But it is clear beyond reasonable doubt that the document on the White House website is not a genuine Hawaiian birth certificate. The corruption in Hawaii that created the forgery, and in Washington, D.C., that allows the forgery to continue in circulation, must be ended.

Congress must at once announce an investigation into the forgery. For although it is right to argue that if a criminal offense has been committed the investigating authorities should act, it has become clear that they simply do not have the courage to do their duty and take on Mr. Obama and the army of vicious leftists with whom he surrounds himself.

This vital congressional investigation cannot be put off any longer. Your Constitution and your systems of government and law are being openly and mendaciously flouted by a nasty faction that hates everything that America and the free West stand for. Fight back, or go down.

Birthers Hope GOP Congress Will Launch Obama Birth Certificate Probe

A columnist for the birther outlet WorldNetDaily wants conservatives to pressure Republican elected officials to initiate a probe into President Obama’s birth certificate if the GOP takes control of the U.S. Senate following the midterm elections.

Lord Christopher Monckton declares that once “the GOP commands both the Senate and the House,” conservatives should demand that they “find what in English we should call the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.”

“If the GOP wins the Senate, and even if it does not win the Senate, let it at last find the guts to do what it should have done long before now,” he writes. “Let it say yes to Sheriff Joe’s request that it should initiate a congressional investigation of this affair.”

He warns that “the clock is ticking” on Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s birther “cold case posse” investigation: “If the sheriff cannot act now, on the basis of the overwhelming evidence in his possession, then Mr. Obama will survive to the end of his second unlawful term as “president.”

By the time you read this, the midterm elections will have been held and the results will be in. If the Republicans win the Senate – which is a possibility, though it will not be easy – they will have the opportunity to do what should have been done long before now: to set up a formal inquiry into the numerous grave irregularities in Mr Obama’s birth certificate.

For Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, the clock is ticking on the investigation of the manifestly bogus “birth certificate” that is still posted at the crime scene that is the White House website.

The midterms are the last election before Mr. Obama’s eight-year tenancy of the White House expires without the option to renew. If the sheriff cannot act now, on the basis of the overwhelming evidence in his possession, then Mr. Obama will survive to the end of his second unlawful term as “president.”

One of the many dismal failures of the GOP since 2008 has been its failure to get to grips with the birth certificate issue.



In my assessment, it is only when the GOP commands both the Senate and the House that it may find what in English we should call the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.



For there would then be an undeniable question mark over Mr. Obama’s eligibility to occupy the White House. Impeachment would inevitably follow. Furthermore, all of the controversial bills passed during his lamentable “administration” would have to be stricken from the record. Bye-bye Soetero” care.”

All of these consequences of the bogus “birth certificate” would be severe. They would be embarrassing. But not half as embarrassing as the knowledge that the world is sniggering behind its hand at the failure of the United States to maintain a system of justice sufficiently robust to bring prosecutions where the evidence is so plain.

If the GOP wins the Senate, and even if it does not win the Senate, let it at last find the guts to do what it should have done long before now. Let it say yes to Sheriff Joe’s request that it should initiate a congressional investigation of this affair. And let the states’ attorneys general of Hawaii and Arizona step down. They should be ashamed of themselves.

They are not fit to hold office. Let theirs, together with that of the head of the Secret Service, be the first of countless heads that must roll throughout the governing class to root out the corruption of which the flagrantly bogus “birth certificate” is an enduring and disfiguring symbol. Enough is enough. It is time for Uncle Sam – and the GOP – to find the cojones to act.

Top Birther Richard Mack Says Ted Cruz Is Ineligible To Be President

As Brian has written about quite a bit, there is some strife in the ranks of birthers over the potential presidential candidacy of Texas senator and Tea Party hero Ted Cruz.

Birthers believe (falsely) that President Obama was born overseas to one parent who was an American citizen and one who was not, and so, they claim, is not a “natural born citizen” eligible for the presidency. But many prominent birthers have made clear that they would be absolutely fine with the presidential candidacy of Cruz, who was actually born overseas to one parent who was an American citizen and one who was not.

Most mainstream legal observers hold that Cruz is still eligible to be president — just as Obama would have been even if he had concocted an elaborate scheme to lie about his place of birth — but the case highlights the hypocricy of the anti-Obama birther movement.

One prominent birther has at least decided to stay consistent. Richard Mack, a former Arizona sheriff who now heads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association — a guild of officers who believe the county sheriff has the authority to defy and arrest federal officials — said in a recent Blog Talk Radio interview that he believes Cruz is ineligible for the presidency.

In response to a caller who argued that the Constitution bars the Canadian-born Cruz from being president, Mack said, “That is correct, I try to say that to a lot of people. Ted Cruz cannot run for president of the United States.”

“I like Ted, I’ve met him several times and he’s kind of a friend of mine, but he can’t run for president,” he continued.

Earlier this year, Cruz praised the efforts of Mack and his fellow anti-government protesters in their armed standoff against the federal government at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Colorado.

Earlier in the program, Mack discussed the president’s birth certificate, saying that it was “real easy to determine that that was a fake and a fraud,” and alleged that the people “who helped fabricate all of these things and people who know about” aren’t coming forward because they’re “all fearing for their lives.”

“I know the person who has done this, they’re all fearing for their lives, obviously, but it’s time to come forward,” he pleaded. “The more light you shed on this, the less likely you are to be killed or hurt or put away.”

Larry Klayman: Deport Obama!

Right-wing legal activist Larry Klayman says President Obama must be “deported back to his native country,” arguing in a WorldNetDaily column on Friday that the president should “be tried, convicted and removed from our shores before he destroys everything the Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.”
