Election 2016

Tony Perkins: America May Never Have Another Election If We Don't Elect Ted Cruz

The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins introduced Glenn Beck at a campaign rally for Ted Cruz in South Carolina light night, where he warned that if America does not elect a bold Christian leader like Cruz, the nation might not have another presidential election ever again.

"I'm here because I decided that too much was a stake to sit on the sidelines," Perkins said, "that I couldn't just sit there and talk about it and do commentary about it; that I wanted to use what influence I had with Christians around this country to say that I've talked to all these candidates, I have vetted the candidates and from my vantage point in Washington, D.C., I can tell you America is in trouble."

"We don't have the latitude to get it wrong one more time," he warned. "If we don't elect a bold, courageous, godly leader in this next election, I'm afraid we may not have another election for our republic. That's not hyperbole. That's the reality based upon what this president's policies have done to this nation."

Perkins, who helped rally Religious Right leaders behind Cruz's campaign, made a similar prediction back in 2012, when he repeatedly warned that America would not survive a second Obama presidential term.

Franklin Graham: 'Only One Election Left' To Save America From Godless Secularists

At the Tallahassee, Florida, stop of his 50-state “Decision America” tour last month, evangelist Franklin Graham declared that such prayer gatherings may soon become illegal if conservative Christians don’t defeat “secularism” in the next election.

Declaring that “America is being stripped of its biblical heritage and God-inspired foundations,” Graham said that although Americans were relieved by the fall of communism, “then secularism came and it infiltrated and it infected our government.”

“Secularism and communism, there’s no difference,” he said. “They’re both exactly the same, they’re both godless. And the Enemy came in and didn’t even have to fire a shot, and he’s already got control.”

The secularists, he claimed, want to prevent people from praying anywhere other than inside a church, so that “having a service like this in a few years could be illegal.”

“America needs the Christian vote,” he said. “You see, it’s not that the enemy is at the gate. They’ve come through the gate because we’ve left the gates wide open and we have allowed our moral walls to deteriorate and fall down.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got maybe one election left,” he declared. “And I’ve been told by people who know that the game will be over. And I’m telling you right now, we’re very close to losing.”

Ted Cruz: Supreme Court Might 'Strike Down The Second Amendment' If Democrats Win In 2016

In an interview last week with conservative activist Michael Quinn Sullivan, Sen. Ted Cruz discussed the importance of the next president’s Supreme Court nominees, claiming that the U.S. is “one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down the Second Amendment.”

Cruz criticized the current “lawless” and “out-of-control activist court” that is “just one justice away from a five-justice, radical, left-wing majority the likes of which this country has never seen.”

The Texas Republican then warned viewers of a doomsday scenario if a Democratic president nominates new justices to the bench:

We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down the Second Amendment, ruling that no individual American has any right whatsoever to keep and bear arms, we are one justice away from that. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down Ten Commandments monuments all over the United States, just like the one we have in front of the Texas State Capitol that I was proud to stand with Greg Abbott, defend before the Supreme Court and win 5-4 upholding it.

We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down school choice programs all over the country. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court striking down every restriction on abortion and mandating unlimited abortion-on-demand up until the moment of delivery, partial-birth abortion with taxpayer funding and no parental notification whatsoever. We are one justice away from that. We are one justice away from the Supreme Court tearing down veterans’ memorials all over this country if they have any acknowledgment of God and we’re not far away from bringing the chisels out to remove the crosses and Stars of David from the tombstones of our fallen soldiers.

Cruz said that while past Republican presidents failed to nominate “proven conservative” justices, he plans to only nominate firm right-wing judges.

“Every justice I put on the court will be a principled conservative jurist,” he said.

'This Is Your Last Call, America': Glenn Beck Begs South Carolina To Support Ted Cruz, God's Chosen Candidate

Last night, Glenn Beck appeared with Ted Cruz at a campaign rally held at Rick Joyner's MorningStar Fellowship Church in South Carolina, where the conspiracy theorist radio host spent a good half hour weeping and shouting as he called upon Christians to rally behind the candidate that God is raising up to save America: Ted Cruz.

After claiming that he was the only one to have accurately predicted the 9/11 attacks, the 2008 economic crisis and the supposed rise of the caliphate, Beck warned that America is doomed if we elect anyone other than Cruz.

"This is your last call, America," Beck proclaimed. "This is your last call."

"I'm here as a fellow citizen," Beck said, his eyes welling with tears, "and I'm begging you, please do not dismiss the peril we are in. Fall to your knees and pray to God to reveal to you what the hour is. Ask our dear Lord to show you who the man is that has the integrity, who has the connection, who will fall to his knees at the Resolute Desk, who, before he acts, doesn't think of a poll but looks to the Constitution and the holy scriptures; our Bible and the Constitution both come from God, they are both sacred scriptures!"

"I know there is a God. I testify to you that I see a storm coming," he continued, saying that God has a plan to save this nation but it requires Christians to do everything they can to elect Cruz.

"This is your last call, America," Beck bellowed. "Stand for the man I believe was raised for this hour: Ted Cruz."

Ben Carson: Democrats 'Intentionally Destroying' Black Families To 'Cultivate Their Votes'

Earlier today on “Breitbart News Daily,” Stephen K. Bannon asked Ben Carson what he thought of the “unseemly” and “shameful” attempts by Democratic presidential candidates to make direct appeals to black voters by doing things like meeting with Al Sharpton, something which Carson would never do.

Carson said that black voters’ “obeisance to the Democratic Party” has “yielded more poverty and broken homes and crime and incarceration and it’s completely unnecessary.”

He then alleged that Democrats want to keep black people impoverished in order to win their votes.

“Throwing away faith and family are deleterious to any community and it’s extra devastating on the black community,” he said. “And I believe that many people of the people who are trying to cultivate their votes know that and are intentionally destroying those pillars of strength to keep people in a dependent position.”

Michael Savage: Bernie Sanders' Wife 'Looks Like Stalin's Housekeeper'

On his radio program yesterday, after predicting that Sen. Bernie Sanders will turn into a violent dictator if elected president, right-wing radio host Michael Savage blasted the Vermont independent’s wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, for “looking like Stalin’s housekeeper,” unlike Donald Trump’s “beautiful” wife Melania.

Savage told viewers that he “can assure you that Trump will be president” while Sanders will “be thrown into the dustbin of history.” He said that under a Trump presidency, “people will again walk around proudly in this country” and “we will see Iranians crying and begging for their life when they are captured by the Americans.”

“We’ll have America back again,” he declared.

While criticizing Sanders as a “jealous loser,” Savage hailed Trump’s family: “When I saw the beautiful Trump family on the stage last night, I said, ‘America is back again.’ I said, ‘Camelot is back again.’ I said, ‘My God, wouldn’t it be beautiful to have a first lady like Mrs. Trump? Wouldn’t it be beautiful to have a first family like the Trump family?’”

“Can you imagine what this county would look like if Bernie Sanders became president?” he said. “His wife looks like Stalin’s housekeeper. And if you want an America with a first lady that walks around looking like Stalin’s housekeeper, well my friends, vote for Bernie Sanders.”

Ted Cruz Announces Endorsement From Jerry Boykin, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Gay Conspiracy Theorist

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign announced the support of yet another far-right figure today, issuing a press release touting the endorsement of Lt. General Jerry Boykin, the executive vice president of the Family Research Council.

Boykin first gained notoriety when he was publicly rebuked by the Bush administration for giving speeches framing American military conflicts in the Middle East as a religious conflict between “our God” and Satan. After retiring from the Army, Boykin threw himself into Religious Right activism, eventually landing the number-two post at the Family Research Council. (Boykin's boss, anti-gay extremist Tony Perkins, is also a Cruz endorser.)

Boykin’s career in the military came under further scrutiny last year when the Intercept reported that Boykin — who now frequently accuses the Obama administration of persecuting Christians at home and abroad — created a Pentagon program that used unwitting missionaries as spies.

His career as an activist has featured plenty of the same Holy War rhetoric for which he first became known, combined with conspiracy theories about President Obama as a terrorist sympathizer and a vision of Jesus as a “man’s man” who will return carrying an AR-15. He is deeply involved in both anti-Muslim activism and the fringe “dominionist” movement that seeks conservative Christian control over the U.S. government.

Just a few lowlights of Boykin’s career:

  • Thinks Christians should act more like ISIS and be “willing to die” for their God.

  • Blamed Obama and his supporters for the shooting at an Oregon community college, adding that we here at Right Wing Watch use “the exact same tactics” as ISIS and Al Qaeda to encourage attacks on Christians.

  • Suggested that the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell led to the “absolute destruction” of our military.
  • Said that “God’s army” must fight the “evil” of gay rights.

'First They Came For The Rich': Michael Savage Predicts Bernie Sanders Will Start Killing Americans

Yesterday, conservative talk radio host Michael Savage voiced his rage over Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the U.S.-Mexico border and the growing popularity of Bernie Sanders.

Savage called for Francis to be “deported if he arrives in America again,” while insisting that “the pope should be sitting in jail for his crimes against children worldwide.”

Savage, who has frequently railed against the man he calls “Lenin’s pope,” said that the Catholic Church — along with Sanders and Hillary Clinton — is bringing a communist revolution to America.

He then put his own spin on Martin Niemöller’s Holocaust-era poem, “First they came for the socialists…”: “First they came for the rich, but you were not rich and you did not stand up for the rich; then they came for the middle class, but you didn’t stand up for the middle class because you were not even of the middle class; and then when they started to come up for the poor there was no one else to stand up for you because everyone else was taken out.”

Then Savage said that Sanders intends to use state-sponsored violence in order to finish the communist takeover of America that President Obama started.

“Obama is pure evil,” he said. “But he’s nothing compared to what Bernie Sanders would do.” Savage predicted that Sanders would impose “naked communism in this country” and “use the street gangs that burned down Baltimore, the street gangs that burned down Ferguson, they will use them as government enforcers as sure as I’m sitting here, they will deputize them, they’ll give them green uniforms and they’ll be used to intimidate the middle class as sure as I’m sitting here.”

He went on to warn that the government has already started its communist killing spree:

Isn’t it odd that Russia has now come to America? Not even the Russia of today but the Russia of yesterday has come to America. Isn’t it odd that it would be a street radical from New York, Bernie Sanders, one of the most dangerous men in political history — oh, I know, ‘He’s a simple old man and he’s not dangerous,’ you are wrong. Watch his snaky eyes when he speaks. He’s extremely smart. Bernie is very smart. Bernie is also a streetfighter. Bernie will fight for what he believes in. In that sense, he is a true revolutionary. And if you want to see friends dragged away by the secret police — my friends, you say it can’t happen here, I’m telling you it is happening here.

You say, ‘What are you talking about? That could never happen here, we have a media that would never permit that to happen.’ Well it just happened two weeks ago in Oregon. They shot a man dead in Oregon, the thugs from the federal government — or was it the Oregon state police? — killed a man who was protesting on federal land and no one in the media covered it. You say it can’t happen here, it is happening here. It is happening here, little by little by little. Police are being shot like bowling pins throughout the country by you know who, do I have to spell it out for you?

Savage added that people who attempt to kill police officers “have been empowered by Al Sharpton and the White House.” 

'I'm Right Probably 80 Percent Of The Time': Glenn Beck Says Only Ted Cruz Can Save America From Revolution

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that Ted Cruz is the only presidential candidate who can save America from revolution.

Beck dragged his trusty chalkboard into his fancy new Oval Office set in order to deliver one of his typically convoluted "history lessons" in which he warned that the election of a "socialist" like Bernie Sanders, an "authoritarian" like Donald Trump or a member of the "status quo" like Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush will inevitably result in revolution engulfing America.

"You don't have to believe me," Beck said. "I'd ask you to read history, I'd ask you to do your own homework. I tell you these things and I usually tell you these things with most of the audience and definitely all of the educated class making fun of me. I've done this a million times; I'm right probably 80 percent of the time on these big things where I stand on them, maybe a higher percentage. I know, because I read history."

Cruz is the only candidate who believes in the Constitution, Beck said, warning that electing a socialist, authoritarian or a member of the status quo will all lead to a revolution from which America will never recover.

The election of a "constitutionalist" like Cruz is "the only one that doesn't lead to revolution," Beck warned:

Cruz Campaign Defends Controversial Pastor Who Says God Sent Hitler To Hunt Jews

A few weeks ago, we noted that Ted Cruz's presidential campaign had proudly announced the endorsement of Mike Bickle, the head of the controversial International House of Prayer and an extremist pastor who believes, among other things, that Oprah Winfrey is a forerunner to the Antichrist.

Among Bickle's more radical views is his prophecy that as the End Times approach, all Jews will be given a chance to accept Jesus, warning that if they do not accept "the grace" of Christ, God will then "raise up a hunter" who will kill two-thirds of them "and the most famous hunter in recent history is a man named Adolf Hitler": 

Such views have understandably alarmed Jewish groups who have called on the Cruz campaign to distance itself from Bickle and his views ... but the Cruz campaign is doing no such thing and is, in fact, defending Bickle's comments:

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign defended an endorsement from a controversial pastor who has called Adolf Hitler a hunter “raised up” by God and actively seeks to convert Jews.

Kansas evangelical Pastor Mike Bickle, whose endorsement the campaign publicized last month, runs a project called “Israel Mandate,” one of whose goals is “partnering with Messianic Jews for the salvation of the Jewish people.” In a sermon in 2011, Bickle said God would give Jews a chance to convert to Christianity and “raise up the hunters” against Jews who refuse. Bickle called Hitler “the most famous hunter in recent history.”

In 2005, Bickle said in a sermon that before Jesus’ coming, “a significant number of Jews will be in work camps, prison camps or death camps.”

Nick Muzin, a senior adviser to the Texas senator’s campaign, said Bickle was referring to biblical passages.

“Our campaign welcomes support from faith leaders across the country,” Muzin said in a statement, according to Jewish Insider. “Mike Bickle is one of the hundreds who have endorsed us. My understanding is that he was paraphrasing the words of the prophets Jeremiah and Zechariah. I know that he has made support for Israel and the Jewish people a central part of his mission.”

...

Muzin said Cruz has 70 rabbis endorsing him.

“No one has a better record than Senator Cruz when it comes to standing with Israel, fighting against radical Islamic terror, and combating global anti-Semitism,” Muzin said in the statement. “We are proud of the support we are building in both communities and see them as complementary, and part of our larger goal of restoring Judeo-Christian leadership values to America and the world.”

This comes as no surprise given that the Cruz campaign likewise refused to distance itself from another radical pastor who openly advocates putting gays to death, claiming that his calls for imposing the death penalty for homosexuality were "not explicit" enough to warrant repudiation.

Louie Gohmert: We Got Sanders Because We Let 'Hippies From The '60s' Become Teachers

Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas addressed the political success of Sen. Bernie Sanders in a radio interview yesterday, saying that the self-described “democratic socialist” is doing well in the Democratic presidential primary because “we let some of the hippies from the ‘60s” influence the education system.

Gohmert spoke with Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman who said that all the “crony capitalism” in Washington has driven voters to Sanders, whom she claimed was “reading from the Communist Manifesto” in a recent debate.

“That’s also because we let some of the hippies from the ‘60s who created such chaos then start teaching the teachers,” Gohmert said, “and teaching them how great socialism is and just rewriting history and keeping them from realizing socialism has never worked, it will never work in this world, in this life, because if you’re going to pay everybody the same thing then they’re going to quit working.”

He added that the survival of the country is “really hanging in the balance.”

Alex Jones: Bernie Sanders 'Is The Final Plague' Upon America

Yesterday, InfoWars broadcaster Alex Jones once again lit into Bernie Sanders and his supporters, this time warning that the Vermont senator represents “the final plague” that will bring down America.

Jones claimed that both Sanders and Hillary Clinton are pawns of the global elite, which he said intends to “enslave” all of humanity, before railing against their supporters as “jackasses,” “fools,” “scum” and “the dumbest, stupidest, most pathetic servile trash the world has ever seen.”

“You won’t learn from history,” he said. “You won’t learn from the nightmare of socialism and collectivism and communism when it puts all these nobodies on top of you who revel in black uniforms and checkpoints and making your wife have sex with them so you can have a job.”

The Five Biggest Lies Carly Fiorina Told In Her Presidential Campaign

Shocking nobody, Carly Fiorina has decided to suspend her campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, bringing to a close a campaign that was most notable for the candidate’s sheer dishonesty.

Fiorina, who was fired from her job leading Hewlett-Packard and lost a 2010 race for the U.S. Senate, styled herself as a truth-telling outsider who, as a female Republican, would be in the best position to take on Hillary Clinton. She also came to be seen by some conservatives as a not-insane alternative to Donald Trump, and was at one point in the hunt to win the support of the billionaire Koch brothers.

While she was unable to make significant headway in the Republican contest, we can at least remember Fiorina’s fights with the truth.

1) The Nonexistent Planned Parenthood Video

Fiorina learned well from anti-abortion groups like the Susan B. Anthony List that the best way to avoid discussing a candidate’s anti-choice stances is to turn the tables and accuse the pro-choice side of extremism. In one case, however, Fiorina tested the limits of that strategy when she lashed out at Clinton for supporting Planned Parenthood, daring her to watch a video allegedly showing an official with the women’s health organization harvesting the brain from “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking.”

Fiorina received huge applause for the line even though, as it turned out, no such video existed.

The video that she referenced, produced by the Center for Medical Progress, didn’t include such a scene, although it did feature unrelated stock footage from a different anti-choice group that provided no information as to “where it came from, under what conditions it was obtained, or even if this fetus was actually aborted (as opposed to a premature birth or miscarriage).”

Even after Fiorina was called out for her dubious statement, she continued to insist that the footage existed. Her campaign defended her remarks by pointing journalists to “a video that isn’t from the Planned Parenthood sting tapes at all — and that still doesn't show what Fiorina said it did.”

2) Abortion Statistics

The uproar over Fiorina’s Planned Parenthood remarks turned her into a hero of anti-abortion activists and so she predictably pivoted to make the issue a key part of her campaign. At one point, her campaign reportedly pressured children on a field trip at a botanical garden to sit next to her at an abortion-themed campaign event.

At the Iowa Right to Life event where she reportedly purloined the class of children, Fiorina lamented that the U.S. has a “record number of abortions year after year after year.”

In fact, the abortion rate in the U.S. has been steadily decreasing since 1990.

3) Gay Marriage Fib

In May, Fiorina raised eyebrows when she said that she opposed a constitutional amendment overturning a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality, a reversal from her position in 2010 U.S. Senate race. “I think the Supreme Court decision will become the law of the land, and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it,” she said at the time.

While Fiorina’s remarks didn’t gain much attention at the time, seeing that she seldom spoke about gay rights issues outside of defending so-called “religious liberty” laws, a conservative radio host asked her about them several months later.

“I think that is a quote from someone else, not from me,” Fiorina said after the host read her a transcript of the remarks she had made.

4) About Those Fired Generals…

Fiorina tried to prove her foreign policy chops during one GOP debate by providing a long list of military officials whom she said were pushed out by Obama for giving him advice he didn’t like.

One of those she mentioned had resigned because he shared classified materials with his mistress, another due to a controversial interview he gave with Rolling Stone, and one left before Obama took office.

Even though one of the generals in question retired during the Bush administration, Fiorina insisted that she “didn’t misspeak” when she brought him up, blasting the Obama administration for not listening to his advice.

As one headline put it: “Despite facts, Carly Fiorina stands by claim about retired generals.”

5) Jobs Lie

At a CNBC debate focusing on economic policy, Fiorina declared that “92 percent of the jobs lost during Barack Obama's first term belonged to women.”

Fact-checkers had a field day with the remarks, noting that it is absurd to blame Obama for a severe economic crash that started before he became president and ignoring the fact that “the women job numbers did a U-turn and became a net gain” later in Obama’s term as president.

“There were actually more women working at the end of Obama's first term than when he started,” Heather Long of CNN Money pointed out.

This ended up being a rare case in which Fiorina actually admitted that she was wrong, saying that she “misspoke” at the debate, even though she had previously used the false claim in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published before the debate.

As you may have guessed, this isn’t even close to being a complete list of the many falsehoods Fiorina told throughout her unsuccessful campaign.

Pat Robertson: Bernie Sanders' Youth Supporters 'The Kids Who Want To Do A Panty Raid In The Fraternity'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson sat down with Stephen Moore, the former chief economist of the Heritage Foundation, to discuss the results of last night’s New Hampshire primaries, and particularly Bernie Sanders’ success in the Democratic contest.

After gloating that Hillary Clinton “is not going to be president” and commending Donald Trump’s “phenomenal,” “patriotic” and “pro-America” victory speech, Moore lit into Sanders and Clinton for proposing “big spending programs” and trying to “raise taxes on the middle class.”

Robertson, before repeating the myth that Sanders is seeking a 90 percent marginal tax rate, said he was confused as to why young voters overwhelmingly backed Sanders in New Hampshire. “Is that like the kids who want to do a panty raid in the fraternity?” he asked.

“It’s an indictment of our education system in America,” Moore said. “When these college graduates think that socialism is an economic model that works, I mean, show me anywhere in the world, Bernie Sanders, where socialism has worked.”

Heidi Cruz: Ted Running To 'Show This Country The Face Of The God That We Serve'

Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi, who has been campaigning for her husband full-time over the past several months, explained the role of faith in the Texas Republican’s presidential campaign yesterday, telling a South Carolina radio host that Cruz is running to “show this country the face of the God that we serve.”

Cruz’s father Rafael made a similar statement last month when he said that Ted, whom he has implied was chosen by God for the White House, was running for president to “share the love of Jesus Christ” with “every person in America.”

Heidi Cruz told South Carolina radio host Vince Coakley yesterday that even if she were not married to Ted, she’d be trying to work on his campaign because “this country is in crisis and this individual has an incredible talent to bring us out of this crisis.”

This is in a large part, she said, because “this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country” and people need to be reminded that “Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution.”

When I thought about doing it for our country, it became very clear to me that our family must be in this race. And it also became clear to me that we are at a cultural crossroads in our country and if we can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve — this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country, our country was built on Judeo-Christian values, we are a nation of freedom of religion, but the God of Christianity is the God of freedom, of individual liberty, of choice and of consequence.

And I think that’s something that this country really needs to be reminded of, is that Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution. And Ted is uniquely able to deliver on that combination of the law and religion.

PFAW Response to New Hampshire Republican Primary Results

With New Hampshire primary results in, People For the American Way President Michael Keegan released the following statement:

"That Donald Trump--who launched his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants 'rapists' and continued by calling for a 'complete shutdown' of Muslim people entering our country--has won the New Hampshire primary is all the evidence anyone should need to understand that the GOP has gone completely off the rails.

"We also must not ignore the fact that the runners up in New Hampshire are extreme in their own right. From moving to end all abortion access, to smearing all immigrants as possible terrorists, to pandering to the most extreme and violent voices in the GOP, the entire Republican presidential field is ignoring the priorities of most Americans and instead pushing a far-right agenda.”

Ted Cruz To Campaign With Glenn Beck At Rick Joyner's Church

Last month, we noted that Ted Cruz attended a national security forum held at Rick Joyner's MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Joyner is a self-proclaimed prophet who frequently talks of his prophetic dreams about chaos and revolution descending upon America and resulting in martial law. He is the sort of right-wing Christian leader who issues warnings about how the devastating 2011 earthquake in Japan would push America into Nazism and declares that Hurricane Katrina was God's judgment for homosexuality. He's also the type to declare that gay marriage will usher in national destructiona second civil wardivine judgmenta ban on men and women marrying each other and even the Mark of the Beast.

But Joyner is not all doom and gloom, as he did once pray away the spread of the Asian Flu and even cooked a miraculous casserole that fed multitudes.

Later this week, Cruz will return to Joyner's church for a campaign event and this time he'll be in the company of another self-appointed prophet: Glenn Beck.

Marco Rubio Boasts Of Perfect Score From Hate Group

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., cited his high score from an anti-gay hate group yesterday to insist that he is “as conservative as anyone running in this race.”

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes asked Rubio about conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly’s recent tirade against him, in which she warned that Rubio was only pretending to be a conservative in the presidential race in order to “pull off one big con.”

Rubio responded by touting his perfect voting scores from groups such as National Right to Life Committee, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity, the corporate lobbying group National Federation for Independent Business, the National Rifle Association and the Family Research Council.

The Family Research Council has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its extreme stances on homosexuality, including its leaders’ defense of Uganda’s “kill-the-gays” bill and call for the U.S. to “export” gay people

Rubio added that in the area of immigration reform, which was Schlafly’s biggest concern, he would “secure our boarder and only after the border is secure will we be able to do anything else and it won’t be amnesty and sanctuary cities will lose their funding and criminal aliens will be immediately deported.” 

Donald Trump: Maybe Obama Doesn't Want To Stop Terrorism

Sending a dog whistle to the GOP’s anti-Obama base, Donald Trump has taken to saying that “there’s something we don’t know about” the president when it comes to issues like terrorism and the resettlement of Syrian refugees.

While Trump has never come out and said what that he thinks that “something” is, the GOP presidential frontrunner told conservative radio host Michael Savage yesterday that he believes Obama may actually be a terrorist sympathizer.

“It’s radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said. “We have a president that won’t even use the words and if you don’t use the words, you’re never going to get rid of the problem. We have a — maybe he doesn’t want to get rid of the problem. I don’t know exactly what’s going on.”
