Phil Robertson: Hillary Clinton Lies Because Satan Controls The Democratic Party

Phil Robertson joined “Breitbart News Daily” this morning to promote his new movie, “Torchbearer,” which was directed by Breitbart chairman turned Donald Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon and produced by Trump aide and Breitbart contributor David Bossie.

Robertson said that America is in need of a “spiritual fix,” and that Democrats have driven out God. The “living proof” of this, he said, is Hillary Clinton, who “has a hard time telling the truth because the Evil One is the Father of Lies.”

Our founding fathers warned us repeatedly to never let this day come, but the day has now come upon us. I mean, think about it. The Democratic Party on [inaudible] when Barack Obama ran, they literally booed God out of the Democratic Party. I mean, not only ran Him out and took His name out of their platform, they booed Him out. So, you get what you ask for, so here we are. So the bottom line is, [when someone said they] entertain the thought of maybe voting for Hillary Clinton, I said, they ran God out of the Democratic Party. She has a hard time telling the truth because the Evil One is the Father of Lies, according to Jesus, and she’s living proof of it, my man.

Pollster Tom Jensen Joins PFAW Telebriefing on the State of the Election

On Thursday People For the American Way hosted a member telebriefing on the current state of the 2016 election cycle to discuss the latest poll numbers and what PFAW is doing to engage in the election.

Public Policy Polling director Tom Jensen joined the call to share recent polling data on both the presidential contest and key Senate races, providing an overview of the 2016 landscape just over two weeks before the election. PFAW’s Drew Courtney, Marge Baker, and Laura Epstein outlined some of the highlights of PFAW’s work in 2016 on engaging Latino voters and making the Supreme Court a winning election issue.

Donald Trump: Many People Say Obama 'Has Declared A War On Catholics'

In typical Trumpian style, Donald Trump sent a letter to a conservative Catholic group this month stating that many people believe that President Obama “has declared a war on Catholics” and that Hillary Clinton “promises to be even worse!”

In the October 1 letter to CatholicVote.org, which the group has posted on its website, Trump committed to signing bills such as the First Amendment Defense Act and the Conscience Protection Act, two GOP measures seeking to curtail LGBT and reproductive health access, respectively.

Our current president has not respected American’s First Amendment rights. Many believe he has declared a war on Catholics. And my opponent promises to be even worse!

As President, I promise that I will protect the rights of Catholics to live their faith, to serve their communities, and to act on their beliefs without fear. This approach one would think is just common sense. And I don't care if people call it politically incorrect.

The priorities that the next President will need to establish are not known at this time. Protection of the nation and its citizens must come first. Getting the economy back on track must be near the top of the list. Preserving and protecting the rights of our citizens must also be in the mix. If Congress considers legislation such as the First Amendment Defense Act or the Conscience Protection Act a priority, then I will do all I can to make sure it comes to my desk for signature and enactment.

Trump Campaign Defends Sons' Appearances On Show With Ties To White Nationalist

Yesterday, we reported that Donald Trump’s son Eric had appeared on “Liberty Roundtable,” a Utah-based radio program hosted by Sam Bushman, whose network also syndicates the white nationalist radio program “Political Cesspool” and who frequently invites “Political Cesspool” host James Edwards to be a guest on his program.

This was especially surprising given that back in March, another Trump son, Donald Trump Jr., stirred national controversy when he appeared on Bushman’s program and ended up taking questions from Edwards, who had also called in to the program. The campaign apparently wasn’t deterred by the experience, and sent both Eric Trump and economic adviser Stephen Moore to Bushman’s program in the last two weeks.

While we don’t categorize the “Liberty Roundtable” itself as white nationalist, the program’s ties to Edwards, a white nationalist, are clear—a fact that the Trump campaign itself demonstrated when Donald Trump Jr. ended up speaking with Edwards on the program.

But the Trump campaign has dug in its heels this time, releasing a statement to CNN stating that “Liberty Roundtable is a conservative program heard on radio stations and online, and dedicated to promoting the principles of the American founding” and insisting that the campaign “would never associate with any program that was even wrongly perceived to be affiliated with a message of hate”:

"As you know, we had no knowledge of James Edwards' participation and strongly rebuked him," Hope Hicks, a campaign spokeswoman, said in a statement, referring to Donald Trump Jr.'s interview. "Liberty Roundtable is a conservative program heard on radio stations and online, and dedicated to promoting the principles of the American founding. We would never associate with any program that was even wrongly perceived to be affiliated with a message of hate."

Incidentally, the Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that a white nationalist super PAC is planning to run ads in support of Trump starting this weekend on both “Political Cesspool” and “Liberty Roundtable.”

Wiley Drake Insists That He And Alan Keyes, Not Hillary Clinton, Started The Birther Issue

Last week, extremist right-wing pastor Wiley Drake joined James David Manning, who is an extreme anti-LGBT preacher in his own right, on Manning's radio show to voice his outrage over the fact that Donald Trump is trying to blame Hillary Clinton for starting the birther conspiracy theory against President Obama.

Drake is outraged by the false claim and wants everyone to know that it was he and Alan Keyes, Obama's Republican opponent in the U.S. Senate race in 2004, who really started the campaign back in 2008 when they ran on the American Independent Party ticket.

As Drake recounted, he traveled to Washington, D.C., with Keyes to file the necessary paperwork to run for president and vice president and they both decided to attach copies of their birth certificates to the filing forms in an effort to force Obama to release his own birth certificate.

"We proceeded to go to court to demand that Barry Soetoro produce his birth certificate equally," Drake said, "because if Dr. Keyes was and I was, we felt it only fair that he produce his. Well, he refused for a long time and therein lies the beginning of the birther issue."

Steve Strang: God Has Raised Up Donald Trump To Be President

In an appearance today on “The Jim Bakker Show,” Charisma magazine founder and CEO Steve Strang said that it is impossible for a person with “a biblical point of view” to vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is a wise and “humble” man who, according to Strang, has been the candidate chosen by God to lead the nation.

“I believe, as odd as it is, that God has raised him up” just as God raised up Abraham Lincoln to save the nation, he said.

Another Trump Son Appears On Program With Ties To White Nationalist

UPDATE: The Trump campaign released a statement to CNN defending the Trump sons’ “Liberty Roundtable” appearances and stating, oddly, that the campaign would “never associate with any program that was even wrongly perceived to be affiliated with a message of hate.”

"As you know, we had no knowledge of James Edwards' participation and strongly rebuked him," Hope Hicks, a campaign spokeswoman, said in a statement, referring to Donald Trump Jr.'s interview. "Liberty Roundtable is a conservative program heard on radio stations and online, and dedicated to promoting the principles of the American founding. We would never associate with any program that was even wrongly perceived to be affiliated with a message of hate."

ORIGINAL POST: Earlier this year, Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. appeared on a radio program called “Liberty Roundtable,” where he was interviewed by James Edwards, a white nationalist who had been called in as a fellow guest.

The younger Trump later claimed that he had no idea that Edwards would be interviewing him, saying that the booking agency that set up the interview had told him it would be with “Liberty Roundtable” host Sam Bushman. Bushman, who syndicates Edwards’ white nationalist program “The Political Cesspool” and often has Edwards on his own show, disputed that account, saying the booking agency had actually reached out directly to Edwards.

The campaign, apparently, did not learn its lesson from the whole debacle, because last week a Trump economic adviser, Stephen Moore, appeared on “Liberty Roundtable” and yesterday another Trump son, Eric Trump, also did.

Eric Trump spoke with Bushman about the vice presidential debate and his father’s plans to save the “inner cities”; Edwards did not appear in the interview with either him or Moore. Still, if the Trump campaign continues sending top surrogates to a show where Donald Trump Jr. was surprise-interviewed by a white nationalist, it seems like they aren’t trying too hard to avoid a repeat.

Alex Jones: Hillary Is Possessed By The Devil, 'Vote Trump If You Want To Live'

Conspiracy-theory-loving broadcaster Alex Jones warned on his radio program yesterday of the prospect of President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine leading the U.S. into a devastating nuclear war with Russia.

“I’m not the devil,” Jones said. “I’m the opposite of that. And these people that say they’re your leaders, they want to kill you and your family and in your gut you know it. Vote Donald Trump if you want to live. It’s that simple. Death is what the globalists have to offer, period.”

Later, Jones claimed that Democratic leaders and George Soros are deliberately instigating a nuclear holocaust: “Why do you want an earth that’s ruined? Because you people are satanic. You’ve been given power because you’ve been possessed, you’ve been turned over to evil. Let me tell you something, George Soros and Hillary Clinton, you just look at them, those aren’t people. You look at Kaine, he’s not a person either.”

Brigitte Gabriel: Elect Trump To Save Western Civilization

Brigitte Gabriel, the head of the grassroots anti-Muslim group ACT for America, was the guest on televangelist Jim Bakker’s program for two days last week, where she focused in particular on her efforts to stop the resettlement of Muslim refugees in the U.S.

Gabriel attacked the charities, many of them faith-based, that work with the government to resettle refugees, claiming that “it’s all about money” for them.

Bakker agreed, announcing, “Listen, write it on the screen, Mr. Director, or the editors, or who whoever works on this show, ‘The love of money is the root of all evil.’” He speculated that these religious charities don’t “understand the infiltration that’s already taken place” with refugees.

“I think if this election doesn’t change things, I don’t see America surviving as we knew it for much longer,” Bakker said. “It is not, anyway. Christian America is no longer, of course, Christian America.”

“This election is an election about survival,” Gabriel, a Trump supporter, agreed. “And not just the survival of the United States, but the survival of western civilization, because America is the superpower of western civilization. And this is why this is our chance to make sure we put someone in the White House who understands how to protect the country.”

Pastor Warns Hillary Clinton Is A 'Demonically Driven' Candidate

Writing today in Charisma, “prophetic minister” Wanda Alger declared that Hillary Clinton “is backed, knowingly or unknowingly, by a demonic force set out to destroy our nation's sovereignty and our religious freedoms.”

While Donald Trump’s “fleshly nature” sometimes “gets the best of him,” Alger said, Clinton “has deliberately set herself against God’s ways.”

“Unless the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, defeats Hillary Clinton in this election, the demonic nature of the political process will unfold with lightning speed and with disastrous results,” she said. “Not only will the issues at stake become very personal for every citizen, but demonically driven.”

The current perspective of many conservatives in relinquishing their vote to Donald Trump is that he is the "lesser of two evils." I propose that this description totally misses the mark since there is a difference between our fleshly disposition to do evil (Rom. 7:22-23) and a conscious decision to rebel against God (1 Sam. 12:14-15). One is the result of a carnal nature that struggles to do what is right versus a deliberate decision to disobey God's laws.

Given the record of Hillary's political and financial pandering with anti-American alliances, her consistent denial of proven wrongs, her utter rejection of scriptural values of life and covenant marriage and her future plans for limiting religious freedom, it should be fairly evident that she has deliberately set herself against God's ways. Trump, on the other hand, demonstrates a consistent pursuit of doing what is right even though his fleshly nature gets the best of him. Though in the early stages of this political journey, Trump is gathering around him godly counselors who hold to traditional values. He has created a platform that upholds biblical ideals. Regardless of his fleshly verbal outbursts, his actions exhibit a clear determination to do what is right by God in leading the nation.

Trump is not "evil" as much as carnal. Hillary is not only carnal, but is backed, knowingly or unknowingly, by a demonic force set out to destroy our nation's sovereignty and our religious freedoms. The only way to stop this momentum is for the Republican candidate to defeat her—even if he is flawed. God can work with a sinner (think Saul of Tarsus) but will utterly reject anyone who opposes Him (Ps. 2:10-12). Unless the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, defeats Hillary Clinton in this election, the demonic nature of the political process will unfold with lightning speed and with disastrous results. Not only will the issues at stake become very personal for every citizen, but demonically driven.

Conservative Pundit: Donald Trump Is 'God's Anointed Choice For President'

In a column today, far-right radio host Laurie Roth writes that several people “have been awakened and given visions and words from God as to who would become President” and they were “all told that Donald Trump was God’s anointed choice for President.”

Roth wonders if God is using Trump to “conquer evil” and “build back a country that God loves,” citing a chapter of the Bible that she believes points to a Trump election victory.

“Pray for a Donald Trump victory and expect greatness,” she writes. “Don’t do this because Trump is mouthy and imperfect but because he will honor Israel, is a sincere and new Christian who prays to the living God, has exceptional ideas for leadership and who has been prepared for this job…perhaps even by God. I believe God has spoken. You vote accordingly.”

According to my investigation several have been awakened and given visions and words from God as to who would become President. They were all told that Donald Trump was God’s anointed choice for President. He would be elected in a landslide and put America back on top in many areas, including spiritually, economically, as a worldwide energy source and power. Please take a moment and watch this. At the very least you may find it fascinating and encouraging. Others will find it a waste of time.

Donald Trump is running to be the 45th President of the United States. Read Isaiah chapter 45. I paraphrase, but it talks of a great conquering leader yet to come – King Cyrus. He was described as a successful conqueror but also as a diplomat who was fair. It says though Cyrus hadn’t known God, (yet) God knew him and his heart and he intended to use him to rebuild, destroy the enemy, bring back prosperity, wealth and influence to Israel. History and the Bible say that Cyrus conquered many nations and acquired much wealth with God’s help and guidance. He had favor largely because he freed Israel.

Is God telling some that Donald Trump is like a coming Cyrus who will conquer evil, be used of God and build back a country that God loves? Is God saying that the 45th Chapter of Isaiah is describing the coming 45th President – Donald Trump? Trump is the only candidate who would truly stand for Israel, stand against evil, be a strong conqueror but also a diplomat or closer as Cyrus was and for the heart and freedom of America that God loves and created.

Regardless of what you believe is coming; I beseech you to pray for America’s victory, for God’s mercy upon us, for protection and might again. Pray for a Donald Trump victory and expect greatness. Don’t do this because Trump is mouthy and imperfect but because he will honor Israel, is a sincere and new Christian who prays to the living God, has exceptional ideas for leadership and who has been prepared for this job…perhaps even by God.

I believe God has spoken. You vote accordingly. If there ever was a time our country needs God’s intervention and plan it is now. May God really bless America…again.

Eric Trump Says His Father's Iraq War Views Should Be Off Limits Because He Was A 'Private Citizen'

Eric Trump, the son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, said in a radio interview this morning that his father is being unfairly asked about his early views on the invasion of Iraq because he was a “private citizen” at the time and was “not really studying these issues.”

Trump has repeatedly claimed on the campaign trail that he was opposed to the war in Iraq from the beginning; when evidence emerged that that is not the case, he claimed that he told radio host Sean Hannity that he opposed the war in conversations that conveniently do not survive on tape.

Eric Trump made the comment in a discussion of the upcoming presidential debate with conservative radio host Mike Gallagher this morning.

The younger Trump agreed with Gallagher that his father shouldn’t try to moderate his behavior because he’s able to “communicate with everyday, hard-working Americans like you and me.”

He complained that Lester Holt, the moderator of the last debate, was “totally biased” and failed to “ask one thing about the greatest Ponzi scheme in American history, which is the Clinton Foundation.”

Instead, he said, “we got the standard nonsense question, which is ‘Well, were you or were you not against the war in Iraq when you were a private citizen and you commented briefly for two seconds on the Howard Stern show.’ … When you’re building residential buildings all around the world and you’re not a politician you’re not really studying these issues at the time.”

Earlier in the interview, Eric Trump mused, “You know, I almost think you should have to contribute something to society before you can run.”

Implying that Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state who has had a long career in public service, has done nothing to contribute to society, he boasted of his father’s supposedly great business success, claiming that “everything he’s ever done” has “turned to gold.”

“My father’s built incredible companies and he’s been an incredible success and everything he’s ever done, he’s turned to gold, you know, it’s really turned to gold,” he said.

Joseph Farah: Electing 'Witch' Hillary Clinton Will 'Shorten My Life'

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah begged readers today to vote against Hillary Clinton in November, calling the former secretary of state “annoying,” “unbearable” and “shrill.”

Indeed, Farah wrote that if “this witch” ever became president, it may do great damage to his health because “the mere thought of her in power will make me sick to my stomach and shorten my life.”

“It’s enough to make me sick that she is even in the race,” he wrote.

Earlier this week, Farah claimed that he will “fear for my life” if Clinton is elected president.

If you’re like me, you are just plain sick and tired of this woman. You find her annoying, insufferable, unbearable, DEPLORABLE, detestable, arrogant, intolerable, haughty, imperious, pompous, presumptuous, shrill, cold, calculating, contemptuous, self-important, autocratic and lacking any appeal whatsoever.

Do I have that about right?

And the big question I have for every American – from those already supporting Donald Trump to those who supported her opponent, Bernie Sanders, in the Democratic primaries – is this: Can you even imagine enduring four years of this witch as president?

I’m sorry, it’s that personal for me.

I don’t really care about her health. I care about mine.

It’s not just that I know she is a vindictive, petty, intolerant monster who will target those with whom she disagrees for all manner of calamity. It’s that the mere thought of her in power will make me sick to my stomach and shorten my life.

Just exactly why would anyone vote for Hillary Clinton?

It’s enough to make me sick that she is even in the race.

Jim Bakker: Hillary Clinton's Pneumonia Was God's Warning Of Imminent Collapse—So Order Food Buckets!

Televangelist Jim Bakker claimed on his program last week that the pneumonia that caused Hillary Clinton to grow faint and leave a 9/11 memorial event in New York this month was in fact a sign from God that a “collapse” is coming and that people should buy survivalist products from his ministry.

Bakker told his studio audience that “something’s going on” to cause people to start ordering food buckets and generators from his ministry. “You know, when you move with the prophets, you know when things are happening,” he said.

He revealed that that “something” has to do with the election, and specifically with Clinton’s health episode at the 9/11 memorial.

The September 11, 2001, attacks were “probably the most stern warning God every gave to America,” he said.

Clinton, he said, collapsed on “the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and she was at 9/11, she was at and on the spot of 9/11.”

“Tell me, is God trying to tell us something?” he asked.

“There’s a collapse coming, much bigger than that collapse,” he said in answer to his own question. “That was the prophetic signal that that would be, on 9/11, at 9/11—give me the odds for that happening—where the towers came down 15 years ago to that day. It’s time to be ready.”

Sandy Rios: Conservatives Will Be Put In 'Reeducation Camps' If Clinton Wins

Today, American Family Association officials Sandy Rios and Tim Wildmon urged conservatives wary of supporting Donald Trump to come aboard the Trump train, warning of dire consequences if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

“Illegal immigrants are pouring over the southern border even as we speak,” Rios, the group’s director of governmental affairs, warned during a conversation with Wildmon on her morning radio show.

She explained that immigrants want to “get in now” before Trump is elected president.

“If we, meaning Americans who love this country, prevail in this election, it will be nothing short of a miracle,” she said.

Wildmon, AFA’s president, concurred: “I always hate to say this is the last chance—”

“I believe it is, actually,” Rios interjected.

Wildmon went on to say that in the battle between “secular progressivism versus constitutional conservatism, this may be the last chance to stop these people from completely overtaking our country.”

Rios then said that conservatives who oppose abortion rights and marriage equality may be forced into “reeducation camps” if America’s progressive course continues:

Plus, the blatant reports on the loss of religious freedom. Actually, Tim, to make it very personal, I’ve said this to you privately, all of us that are conservative and believe in traditional marriage, believe that the life of the unborn should be defended, are going to be in the crosshairs of the IRS, all of the—even the FBI now, we can’t trust our federal agencies. And we are going to be, many of us, in fact in inside circles in D.C. we’re always saying we’re going to be in reeducation camps, and really that’s not a quantum leap.

'We're Not Losers!' Alex Jones In Frenzy After Julian Assange Fails To Topple Clinton

For days, Donald Trump’s supporters in conservative media were gearing up for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s press conference today that they believed would doom Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

No one was more excited than Alex Jones, an outspoken supporter of Trump who has hosted the GOP candidate on his show, and Roger Stone, an informal adviser to Trump and frequent Jones guest.

On Sunday, Jones reported that “Roger is saying that this is ‘the end of Hillary on Wednesday’ and I agree.”

Stone told Jones’ InfoWars network that “the motherlode is coming Wednesday…it’s handcuff time.” The next day, Stone expressed confidence that Assange would "deliver the payload” that would bring down Clinton, tweeting:



Trump ally Wayne Allyn Root similarly assured his fans that Assange was set to release “devastating info on Hillary. That’s assuming Obama & Hillary don’t murder him w/drone strike overnight.” He also said that he was staying up to watch Assange’s announcement—“it’s like staying up for Christmas!”—and wondered if Clinton would need to receive an “adrenaline shot” when she got the news of Assange’s big announcement.

Just before Assange started his remarks, Jones waited with bated breath.

“We better hear some major dirt,” he said. “I’ve been told by Stone and others that have been in contact with him that we’re about to get ‘devastation of the Clintons.’ We’re up at 4 a.m. Central.”

But his confidence that Assange would release a “devastating coup de grace” and “deathblow” to Clinton quickly subsided when it became apparent that Assange was only announcing that he would release new information in the future, although not necessarily connected to Clinton.

Jones, who switched between screaming, singing and rapping during his commentary, was not pleased with Assange’s address, warning him that Clinton is trying to murder him and even tying his newfound contempt for the “Wiki-turds” founder back to his conspiracy theory that Michelle Obama is transgender: “Of the two trannies, she has definitely got the bigger gun.”

He added: “Julian Assange is a Hillary butt plug, Assange is a Hillary butt probe.”

Eventually, Jones channeled Ludacris:

You better release it all within 12 hours or you’re done. We’ve been Wiki-rolled. Who bought them TVs, bitch, tell me that? Move, bitch, get out the way. Get out the way, bitch, get out the way. Move, bitch, get out the way, I mean, you get out the way man. You think you bitched us? You think you rolled us? You ain’t seen nothing yet, Assange. I’m rolling Hillary. I’m the dark heart. We ain’t backing down. Just because you’re a fake chump don’t mean we are. Get ready!

“We’re not losers because we got trolled by Julian Assange,” Jones said, calling Assange’s press conference “hammered shit” and “Hillary’s ‘October Surprise.’”

“You released nothing,” he continued. “You trolled the world…. I am embarrassed, I feel chumped, I feel trolled.”

Naturally, Jones suspected that Assange has now joined forces with the evil globalists.

“I think they’ve gotten to Assange and promised him some type of immunity deal if he rolls over, I think that deal’s been made.”

Ann Coulter Blames Never Trump Movement On Atheism

Ann Coulter joined conservative radio host Eric Metaxas, a fellow Donald Trump fan, on his radio program yesterday, where the two criticized Never Trump conservatives such as Thomas Sowell, Erick Erickson, George Will and Charles Murray and warned that America will collapse if Trump doesn’t win the upcoming election.

Coulter said that Will and Murray may have refused to get behind Trump because they are atheists who care about the opinions of others rather than God’s opinion.

“They are both atheists,” she said. “I guess status matters. As I always say, the reason status doesn’t matter to Christians is we’re looking up. If you have nothing to look up to, if you’re not getting your standard from God, then you have to look around. It’s either lateral or horizontal or vertical. You’re looking around and it matters to you—the opinion of other people.”

Metaxas, for his part, said Will and Murray are out-of-touch, “hyper-preppy” elitists who find it too “embarrassing” to support for the self-proclaimed billionaire. “I think that a lot of the unwashed ‘boob-geoisie,’ the ‘deplorables,’ are going to vote for Trump,” he said, “but right now the media is pushing so hard in the other direction that I’m actually wondering for the first time whether it’s possible for Trump to win this election. And if he doesn’t win the election, then I think it’s a sign that we are done as a country.”

“It’s over,” Coulter said.

Earlier in the program, Metaxas asked if it was “possible” that Hillary Clinton was wearing a “battery pack or something” and an earpiece during the last week’s debate with Trump and “had people feeding her stuff.”

Coulter said she doubted Metaxas’ conspiracy theory, but then suggested that Clinton, due to poor health, “had a lot of pep pills before that debate so whatever that pack was, it could’ve had something to do with her health.”

“She is Tracy Flick in the election and oh she has all of her little facts and figures and deflections and talking points and I think she could’ve reeled off talking points for another hour,” she said. “She looked shockingly, surprisingly healthy.”

Metaxas then joked that Clinton might have been using heroin.

After Week Of Sexist Meltdowns, Anti-Choice Activists Stick With Candidate Who Once 'Disgusted' Them

In late January, just days before Iowa caucus-goers cast the first votes of the presidential nominating contests, a coalition of leading women in the anti-abortion movement issued a scathing open letter urging Republican voters "to support anyone but Donald Trump." They cited what they saw as Trump's lack of commitment on their key issue, including their doubts about whether he would nominate justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, help them to defund Planned Parenthood, or pick a vice president friendly to the anti-abortion cause.

But the letter ended with something more personal: an indictment of Trump's appalling treatment of women.

Moreover, as women, we are disgusted by Mr. Trump’s treatment of individuals, women, in particular. He has impugned the dignity of women, most notably Megyn Kelly, he mocked and bullied Carly Fiorina, and has through the years made disparaging public comments to and about many women. Further, Mr. Trump has profited from the exploitation of women in his Atlantic City casino hotel which boasted of the first strip club casino in the country.

America will only be a great nation when we have leaders of strong character who will defend both unborn children and the dignity of women. We cannot trust Donald Trump to do either. Therefore we urge our fellow citizens to support an alternative candidate.

Signing the letter were Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser and her SBA colleagues Jill Stanek and Marilyn Musgrave, former National Organization for Marriage leader Maggie Gallagher, activist Star Parker, Concerned Women for America founder Beverly LaHaye and CWA president Penny Nance.

Many of these activists have tried to paint the anti-abortion movement as a feminist, woman-centered endeavor and portray Planned Parenthood and Democrats as the true enemies of women.

Eight months later, several of the women who signed the letter are supporting Trump’s candidacy and a few are even “pro-life” advisers to his campaign.

What changed?

Certainly not Trump. Yesterday the Associated Press published a story detailing Trump’s history of demeaning treatment of women on the set of his reality show “The Apprentice”:

During one season, Trump called for female contestants to wear shorter dresses that also showed more cleavage, according to contestant Gene Folkes. Several cast members said Trump had one female contestant twirl before him so he could ogle her figure.

Randal Pinkett, who won the program in December 2005 and who has recently criticized Trump during his run for president, said he remembered the real estate mogul talking about which female contestants he wanted to sleep with, even though Trump had married former model Melania Knauss earlier that year: "He was like 'Isn't she hot, check her out,' kind of gawking, something to the effect of 'I'd like to hit that.' "

Former producer Katherine Walker said Trump frequently talked about women's bodies during the five seasons she worked with him and said he speculated about which female contestant would be "a tiger in bed."

A former crew member who signed a non-disclosure agreement and asked not to be identified, recalled that Trump asked male contestants whether they would sleep with a particular female contestant, then expressed his own interest.

"We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, 'You'd f... her, wouldn't you? I'd f... her. C'mon, wouldn't you?'"

The person continued: "Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat."

This story came just days after Trump, in the first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, defended his history of comments demeaning women by saying that one object of those comments, Rosie O’Donnell, “deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her.” At the same debate, Clinton got under Trump’s skin by bringing up his treatment of Alicia Machado, the Miss Universe winner whom he reportedly called “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.” Trump responded the next day by explaining that Machado had “gained a massive amount of weight.” Then, a few days later, Trump took to Twitter in the middle of the night to call Machado “disgusting” and urge Americans to “check out” her nonexistent “sex tape,” only for it to be revealed that Trump himself was featured in a 2000 pornographic film by Playboy.

It was between the debate and the “sex tape” tweet that Trump’s campaign announced the formation of a “pro-life advisory council” that would work to help solidify social conservative support for the GOP nominee. The council, as had previously been announced, would be led by Dannenfelser. Its members would include Nance and Stanek, both of whom signed the anti-Trump letter with Dannenfelser back in January.

Some of the signers of that January letter have held firm, notably Gallagher, who wrote in The National Review in May that it would be “just too degrading” to support Trump. “If you join Team Trump,” she wrote, “you have to swallow not just what Trump has done and said but the next thing he will say or do. Truthfully, I think he lost me in March, when all it took was just a little prodding from little Marco to get the man to discuss his genitals on national TV. I don’t know what insulting, immoral, gross thing he will say next.”

Gallagher’s observation has held true, as Trump’s supporters have, again and again, had to put up with “the next thing he will say or do.”

But for the core of Trump’s new anti-choice team, his new promises to nominate justices who would overturn Roe and to sign a bill defunding Planned Parenthood and his pick of anti-choice hero Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate seem to have erased any concerns about his “disgusting” treatment of women—even as he continues what they once called his “disparaging public comments.”

The anti-choice movement is increasingly attempting to portray itself as “pro-women” rather than just anti-abortion. The support of activists like Dannenfelser for Trump, even after he gets caught in sexist meltdown after sexist meltdown, shows that for much of the movement this “pro-women” rhetoric is just window dressing.

RNC Attacks Tim Kaine For Being A Lawyer In 'Willie Horton' Style Ad

One day before the vice presidential debate, the Republican National Committee released an ad attacking Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine for his time as a criminal defense attorney.

Today, the RNC tweeted a Roll Call story that compares the ad to the Willie Horton ad, which was widely viewed as an example of racist dog whistle politics when it aired in the 1988 presidential campaign. The RNC later deleted its tweet.

RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer also tweeted the article but later deleted it.

“Long before Tim Kaine was in office, he consistently protected the worst kinds of people,” the narrator intones ominously before describing several cases that Kaine worked on when he was a pro bono attorney for defendants in death penalty cases. “Tim Kaine—he has a passion for defending the wrong people,” the narrator says.

When Kaine ran for governor of Virginia in 2005, he faced similar attacks, and Hillary Clinton has also endured criticism for representing a man accused of rape when she worked as a defense attorney in Arkansas.

The fact that the RNC would tout its ad’s similarities with the racist Willie Horton ad is bad enough, but the attack also strikes at the heart of the Sixth Amendment guarantee that in “all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial” and “have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”

It seems the RNC believes that people accused of crimes, or at least vicious ones, simply shouldn’t have legal representation and/or that defense attorneys should not zealously represent their clients.

The RNC probably would have put together a great ad attacking John Adams, the lawyer who represented the British soldiers implicated in the Boston Massacre.

Jesse Lee Peterson Goes Full Men's Rights Activist In Defense Of Trump Against 'Evil' Clinton

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson was not happy with Donald Trump’s performance in the first presidential debate, writing in a WorldNetDaily column over the weekend that the GOP didn’t attack Hillary Clinton forcefully enough because “you cannot be weak with evil.”

Americans, he wrote, have suffered under the “girly” Obama, who is the “son of Satan,” because white men like Mitt Romney have been afraid of speaking up and being called racist (“a made-up word”).

This led Peterson to address the birther movement: “Patriots like Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump want openness. They value truth. I’m glad they scrutinized liar Barack Obama. (Between Sheriff Joe, Sheriff David Clarke and a few others, all the real men support Donald Trump.)”

Finally, Peterson brought up the controversy over Trump’s insults of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, claiming that Trump is being called a “bully” because it is “an anti-male slur meant to intimidate men, preventing them from defending themselves against female accusers” and linking to an InfoWars editor’s YouTube attack on Machado to claim that she is a “moral reprobate.”

You cannot be weak with evil. You must deal forcefully with the wicked as God himself stands with you.

Donald Trump knows Hillary Clinton is an evil woman. But in their first debate, he held back on her. Now is not the time to be “nice.” We are at war with crooked Hillary, lying media and corrupt politicians, for the future of this country. You’ll notice Hillary does not hold back on Trump.

Hillary and her media’s vicious attacks on Donald Trump are a distraction from reality – they focus on “problems” that don’t exist, like “racism” and “sexism.” He must be strong and wise to defeat the lie.

Trump should have beaten Hillary easily in the first debate. Instead, he was less comfortable and effective than normal. I almost thought I was watching weak, cowardly Mitt Romney pull punches with girly Barack Obama all over again. Painful!

I believe Trump was over-coached by handlers – too careful not to offend a “woman.” It undermined his effectiveness. I pray he does not repeat the mistake – it may be fatal – for his chance at the presidency and for civilization’s future.

As long as lying media maintain their power to delude Americans, Hillary will not be alone in the satanic attack on Trump. Black liberal Lester Holt, the first debate moderator, provided pointless muckraking against Trump to make him appear “sexist.” Example: Lester questioned why Trump said Hillary doesn’t have the right “look” to be president.

Look at how far America has fallen under Barack Obama, “the first black” president (and worst president in history). Why have we suffered eight years under the son of Satan? Too many Americans – especially white men – hold back on the truth about Obama in fear of a made-up word: “racist.” Let’s not repeat this error with Hillary. Let’s stare down another phony accusation: “sexist.”

Hillary called Trump “racist” for questioning Obama’s “natural born” status. Yet Hillary started the “birther” movement. Is Hillary “racist“?

Patriots like Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump want openness. They value truth. I’m glad they scrutinized liar Barack Obama. (Between Sheriff Joe, Sheriff David Clarke and a few others, all the real men support Donald Trump.)

As I write in “The Antidote,” Barack Obama had a Kenyan, atheist-socialist, absent father. This person once visited Hawaii to teach Barack’s eighth-grade class that whites were so-called “racist” in both America and Africa. Later, Obama’s American-hating white mother moved to Indonesia to marry a Muslim man.

In another attack, Hillary blindsided Trump with a decades-old claim that he called a former Miss Universe Alicia Machado “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.” Hillary and her media smeared Trump as a so-called “racist” and “misogynist.” Media portrayed Trump’s 3 a.m. tweets about Machado as those of a sulking “bully” (an anti-male slur meant to intimidate men, preventing them from defending themselves against female accusers).

But this Venezuelan “new citizen” is a moral reprobate, just like Hillary – same with all the Democrats’ many “victims.” (Speaking of “deplorables” and “racists,” when will Hillary denounce Black Lives Matter?)
