Right Wing Leftovers - 2/15/13

You can bet the timing is connected."

Such groups, the report stated, 'are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in the United States.'”

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/11/13

We put barriers around the United States that will bind and block the witchcraft coming from Kenya to influence our president in Jesus' name. Let the power of every dedication of his past be broken, in Jesus' name."

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/7/13

  • ALIPAC's William Gheen says Senators "Rubio, McCain, and Graham are deeply scarring their reputations within the Republican party by both pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants and remaining in open coalition with Senator Bob Menendez despite these shocking revelations and scandals. Senator Menendez needs to resign from the immigration reform amnesty group and the US Senate seat he is disgracing with his continued presence."

May He intervene to prevent this travesty against righteousness and justice from taking place! May God give the BSA leaders courage and understanding NOT to forsake their own laws by BOWING to those behind this immoral shakedown. May those within who are behind this resign or be removed! May Scout parents across America rise up to say 'NO' to this evil and may they prevail in preserving this great institution!"
  • Gary Cass also opposes any possible change because it will only lead to sexual abuse.

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/29/13
