RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
While there may not be much time left for us here in America before a combination of death panels and Sharia law overtake the nation, we still will rise up to defend the constitutional rights of the Twitter spambots that Obama seeks to crush!
5) Breitbart Uncovers The Truth The Liberal Media Is Hiding
The right-wing outlet Breitbart News went on a mission this week to uncover the dirt on attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch that the biased left-wing mainstream media has been hiding. Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston discovered that Lynch had served as “a member of Bill Clinton’s defense team during the 1992 Whitewater corruption probe.”
Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak commented that Huston’s story “ought to provide additional fodder for Republicans during Lynch's confirmation hearings,” saying that the nomination was a reward “for her political loyalty.”
That is, it might have been if it they had been talking about the same Loretta Lynch. As Timothy Johnson of Media Matters reported, the Loretta Lynch profiled by Breitbart is not the same Loretta Lynch who President Obama nominated to be attorney general. Johnson notes that the “[c]onservative website American Thinker made the same mistake, misidentifying the 'Whitewater' Lynch as a graduate of Harvard — the school attended by nominee Lynch.”
Rather than actually correct the mistake, Breitbart kept the title and entire article up while simply adding, “Correction: The Loretta Lynch identified earlier as the Whitewater attorney was, in fact, a different attorney.”
Breitbart eventually removed Huston’s story, but such brazen misinformation from the conservative site is nothing new.
4) Obama Administration Suppressing The Free Speech Rights Of Spambots
Five years ago, many conservative politicians falsely claimed that the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act repealed the right to freedom of speech. This year, many in the GOP stoked similarly bogus fears to attack a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.
Now, one Republican congressman is accusing the administration of advocating for the “suppression of online political speech” by awarding a National Science Foundation grant to the website Truthy, a project of researchers affiliated with Indiana University which studies “how popular sentiment, user influence, attention, social network structure, and other factors affect the manner in which information is disseminated.”
Truthy’s reports include titles such as “Competition among memes in a world with limited attention” and “Political Polarization on Twitter,” but, as we all know, studies on how information disseminates on social media are probably just a way to censor conservatives!
In one study, Truthy discovered that a Twitter campaign targeting a Democratic senator was using spambots, or fake accounts, which led Twitter to terminate the phony profiles.
Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, apparently believes this is a sign of political suppression, claiming in his letter [PDF] to the National Science Foundation that Truthy is “effectively muzzling the political free speech” of targeted conservatives on social media.
Let Wonkette break it down: “Truthy developed algorithms to detect spambots, they worked, and Twitter nuked the accounts for violation of their terms of service. It’s nice to know that Rep. Smith is so concerned about the precious free speech rights of spambots.”
3) Marriage Conspiracy In The Courts
The Coalition for the Protection of Marriage suggested this week that there is a conspiracy afoot to place is to place the same two Democratic-nominated judges on Ninth Circuit Court panels hearing cases involving marriage equality, thus rigging the panels in favor of gay rights advocates. The California group unveiled a new website insisting that there is a “disturbing” and “strong appearance that the Ninth Circuit did not follow its neutral, impartial assignment process in assigning” marriage cases.
The anti-gay group, however, seemed to ignore, as one political science professor told the New York Times, that “the accused judges voted against the lesbian and gay litigants in a full third of the cases deemed suspicious by the other side.”
In addition, the Times reports, judges are assigned at random to panels “long before particular cases are assigned to panels,” and many marriage cases were put on a “fast track” which were “assigned to the available panel with the most senior presiding judge,” who in this case happened to be a Carter appointee.
But the Coalition for the Protection of Marriage isn’t alone in pressing its flimsy conspiracy theory. Mark Joseph Stern points out that “Ed Whelan—a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia—penned a strange post at the National Review in October in which he ‘wonder[ed] whether nefarious hijinks in the Ninth Circuit clerk’s office in San Francisco’ accounted for the judge selection in the gay marriage case.”
2) RIP Dorothy Zborknak
Meet the first victim of the Obamacare Death Panels: Dorothy Zborknak.
Does Ms. Zborknak exist? No, just on Golden Girls.
Do death panels exist? Also no.
While the news of the fictional character’s Obamacare-manded death has apparently sparked anger on fringe outlets, more popular conservative sites like Breitbart are still intent on publishing ridiculous articles like, “The Death Panels Are Coming.”
1) Sharia By 2020
Kamal Saleem, the Religious Right activist who pretends to be a former terrorist, is pretty sure that the United States is secretly controlled by an Islamic shadow government led by the Obama family’s radical Muslim babysitter.
While speaking with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council this week, Saleem also brought us the stunning news that Sweden is now under the thumb of Islamists, and that the same Islamist rise to power “is happening here in the United States.”
Saleem told Perkins that Islamic control of America will be complete by 2020.
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
The GOP’s strong performance in this week’s elections hasn’t curbed far-right fears about the Obama presidency, and in fact, some fear that the president may now pursue extremely deadly policies. When not worrying about the government, conservatives are also suspicious about what gay people are doing to their coffee.
5) Obama Worse Than Stalin, Mao And Pol Pot
Rick Wiles has regularly warned that President Obama “will bring unspeakable violence and bloodshed to the soil of America” and even “destroy the country,” fearing that “every time there has been a dictator that has taken over a country, within a short period of time millions of people die and they are always Christians.”
This week, the “Trunews” host spoke to fellow End Times broadcaster Steve Quayle, who told Wiles that Obama will “supersede” violent dictators like Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot.
4) Obama ‘Will Punish The Nation’ For Voting Republican
Right-wing talk show host Laurie Roth is urging Republicans in Congress to see the 2014 election as a mandate to “defend against everything Obama has cursed and touched” and begin “undoing massive damage at the hands of Obama.”
Writing in BarbWire today, Roth cautioned that Obama will take his anger over the GOP victories out on American citizens.
“Now there is not enough medication for the leftist media and Democrat-Zombie survivors. Well…they can deal with it. We have had to deal with them for the last 6 years from hell,” she said. “It is time to celebrate, then be aware and plan for the next Zombie moves from Obama and the left. Obama is mad now, more than ever and he will punish the nation severely through his executive orders, starting with the amnesty middle finger.”
Fortunately, Roth said, God is on the GOP’s side: “Bring it God…America needs and wants you again. We are coming back. Put your sunglasses on world because America will soon be very bright again.”
3) George Soros Is Behind Obama … And Wants Obama To Fail
Glenn Beck believes George Soros is pulling the strings of political events around the world, and according to Beck, Soros had a secret meeting with Hillary Clinton where he told her to “back off” and deliberately lose to in the 2008 Democratic primary race.
Beck posits that Soros knew Obama’s “radical things” would “cause all kinds of strife,” enabling Clinton to “come in as the moderate” when Obama’s time in office is over. Then, as Beck’s theory goes, Clinton can implement the final steps of their radical left-wing agenda: “You will be the one that was remembered for picking up all of the pieces and having the final transformation, you will be the mother of the country where Washington was the father of the country and this guy [Obama] will be remembered as the mother-blank of the country.”
2) The Great Voter Fraud Bust
Fearing that Democrats would rig the election with widespread voter fraud, the Tea Party-aligned group True the Vote recently unveiled a smart phone app that “will finally pull the curtain back on the myth that there is no voter fraud.”
But this week the app proved once again that voter fraud is, in fact, a myth, as True the Vote posted a mere 18 submissions from app users in an election where over 83 million people turned out to vote. Of the 18, just one dealt with an actual issue of voter fraud (potential voter impersonation, an extremely rare occurrence).
Most of the app’s posts dealt with irregularities that have nothing to do with True the Vote’s political agenda of passing restrictive voter ID laws, and “one report to True the Vote’s app chronicled a voter’s struggle with an overly restrictive voting law that True the Vote supports.”
One True the Vote gumshoe reported that an “African American woman working there was standing behind me watching me vote.” And because of horrific events like this, True the Vote and other conservative groups have successfully convinced GOP-controlled legislatures around the country to pass laws cracking down on voting rights.
1) Sodomite Semen In Your Starbucks!
He managed to link a recent small protest outside of his church, where two people handed out Starbucks coffee, to “homosexual sodomite” Dr. Craig Spencer, the New York man who contracted Ebola in Guinea (and who has a girlfriend).
“Starbucks is a place where these types frequent and a lot of body fluids are exchanged there and Ebola,” Manning said, warning that Starbucks has been “taking specimens of male semen and they were putting it in the blends of their lattes.” He added: “My suspicion is that they’re getting their semen from sodomites. Somebody has discovered that semen like cord blood has millions of little zygotes in it and flavors up the coffee, and makes you thinks you’re having a good time.”
“This is the absolute truth,” he said, citing a satirical article.
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
The conservative persecution drumbeat has been in full-force this week, with new predictions about Nazism coming to America and looming gay oppression. But maybe we will all be spared such atrocities if President Obama manages to give us all Ebola first.
5) Nazism Around The Corner
After making a “documentary” likening the state of freedom in the U.S. to Germany right before the Nazi takeover, Rick Santorum is at least now owning up to his film’s claims.
While speaking with the Christian Post this week, the former Republican presidential candidate offered Nazi Germany as an example of how a country loses religious freedom, warning that “if we continue down this path” then Nazi-style violent persecution will come to America.
4) Gay Rights Supporters Will ‘Throw You In Jail’
Dave Daubenmire wants to know why conservatives haven’t spoken out against “lesbianism and the frontal assault on Christianity the homosexuals have been engaged in for the last three decades,” adding that now “the barn door can no longer be closed. The homosexuals own the barn.”
Pointing to the case in Houston where a group of pastors faced subpoenas (which have since been withdrawn) as part of a lawsuit against the city for invalidating petitions challenging a nondiscrimination ordinance, Daubenmire lamented that “our nation is about to be overrun by the enemies of God.”
“They are coming for your churches,” he writes. “They are going to make you marry homosexuals. They are going to throw you in jail and seize your church if you don't. The devil and his kids do not play fair...they play dirty.”
3) ‘Sodomite’ Slavery
“Trunews” host Rick Wiles knows for a fact that “we’ve been taken over by homosexuals and sodomites, and lesbians and transvestites, and a bunch of communists and socialists and atheists and God-haters,” and as a result, Wiles fears, “this country is about to be judged.”
And the End Times broadcaster has even more bad news: those who survive the divine punishment of America “will be slaves” of the gay government: “That is the future that is facing America if this country does not repent and the time is ticking away.”
2) Maybe Obama Wants Us To Contract Ebola
Wiles’ fringe views, it turns out, are apparently acceptable among certain GOP members of Congress.
Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican from Texas, stopped by “Trunews” recently to warn that Obama may sabotage the American response to the Ebola outbreak in order to allow the government to use the ensuing crisis “to advance their philosophy and their agenda” and “take control of the economy and individuals and so forth.”
This week, Rep. Paul Broun voiced similar concerns in an interview with Wiles.
The Georgia Republican told Wiles that Obama may have a “purposeful” plan to make more Americans contract Ebola, and he even entertained Wiles’ prediction that the White House will put foreigners with Ebola in VA hospitals.
Broun, not finished yet, speculated that the Obama administration’s following the advice of infectious disease experts in his handling of the Ebola crisis may stem from a “malicious intent” to harm Americans since “there is no logic whatsoever about why they are acting the way they are.”
1) ‘Rape Culture’ A Liberal Lie ‘To Get Votes’
Conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager knows the truth about rape on college campus, and at a Republican rally this week Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave him the platform to share his discovery.
According to Prager, in remarks captured by Media Matters, feminists and their liberal allies have destroyed American culture with promiscuity, immorality and gender polarization. Liberals, Prager explained, even concocted the “lie [of] the culture of rape on your campuses” in order “to get votes.”
We look forward to Prager’s appearance in the next GOP rebranding memo.
With the election less than two weeks away, conservative commentators are making some pretty terrifying predictions about how President Obama will serve out the remainder of his term. But last-minute Obama-bashing won’t distract them from their other, equally important, job: attacking gays and lesbians.
5. Ernst Goes There
Since securing the GOP nomination for her state’s open U.S. Senate seat, Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst has been trying to downplay her extremist record.
But the Republican candidate is having a hard time running away from her past remarks on such issues as the danger of the UN’s Agenda 21 and the ability of local law enforcement to arrest federal officials implementing Obamacare.
In the latest example of Ernst’s record catching up to her, a video surfaced this week of the candidate telling an audience at a 2012 NRA event that the reason she takes her gun “virtually everywhere” is because she is afraid of not only violent assailants but also the government: “I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”
Ed Kilgore explains the thinking behind Ernst’s claim: “The idea here is to intimidate liberals, and ‘looters’ and secular socialists, and those people, that there are limits to what the good virtuous folk of the country will put up with in the way of interference with their property rights and their religious convictions and their sense of how the world ought to work. If push comes to shove, they’re heavily armed, and bullets outweigh ballots.”
4. Obama Will Kill Us All!
If you wonder where Joni Ernst gets her ideas about an imminent government crackdown that may require a violent response, look no further than Fox News, where just this week Sean Hannity hosted conservative pundit Mark Levin to discuss President Obama’s nefarious agenda.
Levin told Hannity that Obama is imposing “quintessential statism” on America that “is a disaster,” Media Matters reports.
“The country has gone to Hell under this president and under the Democrat [sic] Party,” Levin said, warning that after the election, “with Obama it’s going to get worse, you’re going to see his full Mussolini coming out.”
Wayne Allyn Root, another conservative commentator, managed to top Levin’s remarks in an interview on the “Point of View” radio show, where he claimed that Obama “was sent here to destroy this country,” possibly by the “communist forces” of the Soviet Union or the Bilderbergs, and is “taking down the entire America.” Root added: “We’ve got to remove him from office and fast before he kills all of us.”
3. Latest Voter Fraud Menace
We keep hearing stories about Republicans increasing their outreach to African American and Latino voters, but their enthusiastic efforts to prevent people from registering to vote and from casting ballots may not be helping their case.
Take a recent incident in Arizona, where a GOP official and conservative media outlets fumed that an activist with a progressive group dropped off a box of absentee ballots at a polling center, which is completely legal. Immediately, conservatives accused the activist — a Latino man — of committing voter fraud through “ballot stuffing” and wondered if he was a violent “illegal alien.”
Thursday night, Mitt Romney made an appearance in Mesa, Arizona, to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey. A graphic on a couple of conservative blogs, reproduced up top, urged attendees to “Bring your Early Ballots!” so GOP get-out-the-vote volunteers could collect them and get them to the county elections office.
Just remember, it’s only okay if Republicans do it, otherwise it’s voter fraud.
2. Beware Gay Plants, Or Something
“Gaydeology,” the dogma that “sexual liberation” is the highest moral value, presses forward aggressively on all fronts. Christians are to be punished by the state if they refuse to knuckle under. But the militant “gays” are only the street muscle for a “progressive” project to beat down church, family, and anything else that competes with the secular, God-denying state for the loyalty of every citizen. This vision for America, and for all the other countries of the Western world, has roots in the 19th century that sprouted into man-eating plants in the 20th, to become a worldwide plague in the 21st.
It is reminiscent of “The Day of the Triffids,” a classic horror movie about plants from outer space that infest the earth and strike blind anyone who gets too close.
Well, we have been blind, haven’t we? Blind to threats to our freedom, blind to the vast incompetence of government, and blind to its insatiable lust for power. Worst of all, we have been both blind and deaf to God our maker and our Father, whose blessings have been the lifeblood of America.
Maybe that should be the rallying cry of the anti-gay movement: Beware the triffids!
1. Gay ‘Terrorists’ Out To Get Us
Pat Robertson, who once warned viewers that they could become the victims of a gay ‘AIDS ring’ attack, lashed out at gay rights advocates on “The 700 Club” this week and accused them of trying to throw their opponents in jail.
Robertson didn’t hold back, warning that gay “terrorists” are launching their own Spanish Inquisition: “These people are terrorists, they’re radicals and they’re extremists. No Christian in his right mind would ever try to enforce somebody against their belief or else suffer jail. They did that during the Inquisition, it was horrible, it was a black mark on our history, but it isn’t being done now.”
Of course, Robertson’s argument relied on a twisted reading of a legal case in Houston, Texas, but that didn’t stop him from attacking the “monstrous” gay rights movement.
While secretly plotting to use foreign forces to impose martial law on America, President Obama is also unleashing Ebola on Americans. Or maybe that’s just God punishing us for letting gay people be free. Either way, it may be too late for America because we all failed to listen to the wise words of Keith Ablow and Steve Stockman.
5) Gays To Blame For Ebola
It was only a matter of time before someone blamed the gays for Ebola, and North Carolina pastor Ron Baity was happy to be that brave person.
Back in 2012, Baity helped spearhead the campaign to pass a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions in his state. When that ban was struck down by a federal court this week, Baity connected it with something else he was seeing in the news, predicting that God will punish America with the Ebola virus because of the fall of same-sex marriage bans and laws criminalizing homosexuality.
“We are bringing the judgment of God on this nation,” Baity said in a sermon captured by Jeremy Hooper. “As sure as Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed, don’t be surprised at the plagues, don’t be surprised at the judgment of God. You think Ebola is bad now? Just wait.”
4) Obama To Blame For Ebola Because He Hates America
Fox News therapist Keith Ablow believes he has the distinct ability to speak from “deep inside the president’s psyche.” And in that psyche, Ablow finds a bitter, racist man who wants to bring Ebola to America.
Eric Hananoki of Media Matters reports that during an appearance on Fox News Radio this week, Ablow reported that that while treating Obama over the TV, he discovered that the president hates America and “has it in for us.” According to Ablow, Obama’s “affinities” are with the people of Africa and he subsequently sees it is a matter of “fairness” that more Americans contract Ebola.
In his make-believe examination of Obama, it turns out Ablow also found a collection of right-wing memes from the 2012 election: “Let me speak as though I’m coming from deep inside the president’s psyche. You miserable people have destroyed so much in the world in terms of good things, and now you're going to build a wall? Really? To insulate yourself from things that are devastating other nations when your gains are ill-gotten? And the very fact that you can build a wall — you’re using wealth that you never should have had to build it. This is just another manifestation of you didn't build that, business. Right? You didn't build the right to make yourself immune from something that is devastating a country with lesser resources.”
Phyllis Schlafly also speculated this week that President Obama wants to bring Ebola to America to make the country more like Africa: “Obama doesn’t want America to believe that we’re exceptional. He wants us to be just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.”
3) Obama To Blame For Ebola Because He Hates Freedom
Rep. Steve Stockman thinks something is fishy about the U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak, and the Texas Republican is just going to put it out there that maybe Obama is sabotaging the government response because he wants the virus to spread, giving him an excuse to seize dictatorial power.
“It’s just bizarre there’s not enough action up front and I’m wondering if that’s — I’m not saying this — but I’m wondering if that’s intentional in order to create a greater crisis to use it as a blunt force to say, well in order to solve this crisis we’re going to have to take control of the economy and individuals and so forth,” the actual member of Congress told End Times soothsayer Rick Wiles. “It’s just a strange non-response, a strange way of handling it and I think that if it does go forward and we do not control it, there may be an overreaction where the government starts taking away the rights of those that aren’t that necessarily involved or need that to happen.”
After all, Stockman explained, “this current government uses crisis to advance their philosophy and their agenda” and Obama already gave himself the authority to exercise “emergency powers to take over control of the economy and everything.”
Stockman insisted that he was “not saying this,” just asking the question!
2) Why Hasn’t The Military Staged A Coup?
When a GOP official in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, wrote a Facebook post this week asking why the military hasn’t yet staged a coup to overthrow the Obama administration, she made sure to use the “just asking the question” framing we see so frequently from conservative pundits and politicians who are trying to escape any responsibility for their statements.
Debbie Dunnegan Waters, Jefferson County’s recorder of deeds, an elected office, wrote on Facebook: “I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military … having not put on a uniform nor taken any type military oath [sic], there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the constitution gives you the authority. What am I missing?”
See, she wasn’t saying the military should overthrow Obama, just asking why it hadn’t.
“Something innocent and simple got twisted into a disaster because it’s an election,” she explained after her Facebook post attracted national attention. “I meant no ill intent toward the president. I meant no ill intent toward anybody.”
Well, that settles that!
1) Vets Must Prepare For A Coup!
Alex Jones knows why the military hasn’t staged a coup yet, and the answer may surprise you!
The “Infowars” host said on Wednesday that whenever he goes out and about, military service members and police officers keep approaching him to sing his praises and confirm his fears about fluoridated water, FEMA camps and Agenda 21.
While speaking with survivalist James Wesley Rawles on Wednesday, Jones reported that the government has been brainwashing service members with messages that “Christians are bad, gun owners are bad, the founding fathers were bad. It’s like something you’d expect to see in the Red Dawn movie when they show the reeducation camp at the sports stadium with the movie screens going ‘George Washington was a pig, gun owners are bad, capitalism is bad.’”
Fortunately, Jones thinks that as a result of his show getting the truth out there, such moves have turned the military against the government: “The propaganda of the people running things is so horrible it makes you think they’re inept because this is the stuff bad guys would tell the military. I think their attempt to demonize the liberty movement has totally backfired on them and is strategically one of the biggest defeats they’ve had.”
Rawles confirmed that service members “have woken up, they have done their homework, they can see what’s really going on and they are no longer falling for the lies the administration is trying to push,” thus thwarting Obama’s plans to impose martial law: “It’s very encouraging because if they ever tried to institute martial law, they’re not going to be able to do it with American troops, they’ll have to bring in overseas troops to try to institute martial law in this country because the American military is not going to put up with it.”
Even better, Rawles noted that once there is a “situation where there is a war of resistance in America,” then “all those returning veterans are going to form the core cadre of resistance.”
Jones, however, cautioned that the Hitlerian military now treats veterans as “enemy number one.”
Of course Republicans would never resort to using the Ebola outbreak in West Africa or violence committed by terrorist groups like ISIS to score political points against President Obama … they are just merely asking the question if Obama plans to put us into FEMA camps, let terrorists cross the border into the U.S. and infect everyone with Ebola.
5. Get Ready For FEMA Camps
Right-wing commentators seem pretty convinced that President Obama actually wants the Ebola outbreak to come to America, now they just need to ascribe to him motives to substantiate this latest fear.
Morgan Brittany, a conservative author and columnist for WorldNetDaily, offers her own view, arguing that Obama is “orchestrating” the Ebola outbreak “so martial law can be declared, guns can be seized and the populace can be controlled.” After all, Obama has purchased “$1 billion worth of disposable FEMA coffins” and set up “FEMA camps to house people in isolation,” all of which would be a shame to waste.
Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly believes the president wants to spread Ebola inside the U.S. because he thinks America should be “just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.” Kieth Ablow of Fox News agrees, writing in a column yesterday that “the president may literally believe we should suffer along with less fortunate nations,” a claim which he says is based on his expert opinion “as a psychiatrist who has studied this president only from a distance.”
American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, as usual, puts his own twist on things, suggesting this week that Obama wants to infect people with Ebola in order to “punish America for being racist.”
4. Liberals Are Out To Get Sam Brownback…Electorally, That Is
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is locked in a tight gubernatorial race this year despite running in one of the most Republican-leaning states in the nation, and while speaking with conservative reporter David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Brownback said he isn’t to blame for any of the state’s serious economic and budget troubles.
Brownback told Brody that he is the victim of a liberal-media plot to make the state’s economy look like it is in bad shape, insisting that progressives don’t realize that “tax policy takes some time to work.”
“I think they so desperately want what’s happening in this state to fail,” Brownback said. “The left is just so desperate to see — they want this model to fail so bad.”
He even seemed offended that Democrats would dare to field a candidate to run against him and condemn his economic policies: “They want to get me, electorally, before we get on through this and prove that this is working.”
Brody predictably agreed, suggesting that the media is exclusively covering “negative news coming out of the state economically” and is leading “an out-to-get-you campaign because you’re a conservative-type guy.”
3. Supreme Court Blues
Conservative legal activist Mat Staver has been on a media tour lambasting the Supreme Court for letting several lower court marriage equality decisions stand this week, a move that effectively legalized same-sex marriage in several states, including Virginia, where Staver works as dean of the Liberty University School of Law.
Staver has pulled no punches, comparing the decision to the Dred Scott case and insisting that it marks “the beginning of the end of western civilization,” adding that marriage equality will “make the economy poorer” and “make the society unstable.”
Staver even said the Supreme Court’s decision not to act on appeals from states seeking to keep marriage bans in place will lead to the proliferation of several different “kinds of serious and deadly disease.”
2. Drug Cartel Caliphate
Despite the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has said that there is no evidence of ISIS members trying to enter the U.S. through the southern border, GOP members of Congress beg to differ.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz said at least four terrorists have tried to cross into Texas, while his colleague Duncan Hunter put the figure at ten. Neither found the need to share any evidence to substantiate his claim..
Tom Cotton, the Arkansas congressman and U.S. Senate candidate, warned voters that ISIS and other groups are working with Mexico-based drug cartels to launch terrorist attacks in America as they “infiltrate our defenseless border and attack us right here in places like Arkansas.”
The discredited claim seems to be a real winner for the GOP, as Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick, who is running for lieutenant governor, has even turned the issue into a campaign ad:
1. Obama Is The Antichrist, Again
Need more proof that Obama is the Antichrist? Well, Bible Code “expert” Jonathan Wright is here to help. Wright recently shared with End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles his findings that the Bible Code proves that Obama is either the Antichrist or an Antichrist-like figure.
He also found more evidence of Obama’s Antichrist nature: a Muslim wedding ring… which unfortunately for Wright doesn’t actually exist.
Now that a Liberian man who flew to Dallas this week has become the first person to develop Ebola symptoms in the U.S., the right-wing media is doing what it does best: freak out and blame everything on President Obama. Or maybe Ebola is just a distraction from Obama’s plot to seize everyone’s guns while gay people and ISIS attempt to “recruit” American children.
It seems conservative pundits are trying to one-up each other to come up with the most insane ways to connect Obama to the case of a person in Dallas being diagnosed with Ebola after traveling from Liberia.
Laura Ingraham suggested that Obama is threatening the health of Americans due to his “core ties to the African continent,” saying Obama’s “familial connection to Africa” is the reason why flights from West Africa are still entering the U.S., while Michael Savage said Obama “wants to infect the nation with Ebola” by sending U.S. troops to West Africa who will then contract Ebola and spread it when they are back in the U.S.
It was only a matter of time before a Republican congressman embraced the latest conspiracy theory emerging from right-wing talk radio, and of course, this honor once again belongs to Rep. Louie Gohmert, who told Fox Business that Obama wants to “send 3,000 military into where they can get Ebola that they can bring back,” even though, as the Texas Republican astutely noted, “the military’s not trained to go catch Ebola and die.”
4. The Gays Are Coming
There’s only one thing worse than Ebola, and that’s “a gay” who is trying to “recruit” your son, or so explained “doctors” Paul Cameron and Gordon Klingenschmitt this week on Klingenschmitt’s acclaimed show “Pray In Jesus Name.”
3. Obama Taking Your Guns, Again
Naturally, Fox News commentators believe that a bill to expand background checks on firearm purchasers and a proposed treaty to codify practices in the transnational arms trade are actually attempts to ban guns for everybody. In fact, Fox News’ Steve Doocy and Andrew Napolitano believe that, thanks to Obama’s fictional gun-grab, Americans everywhere are in constant risk of getting decapitated.
“The problem is the President of the United States who is doing everything he can, administratively as the chief executive officer of the federal government, and attempting to now get us to enact a treaty to make it very, very difficult to carry guns,” Napolitano fumed following the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma City by a former coworker, adding that Obama wants “to intimidate people out of getting guns because the president believes that he and the government — and all logic defies this — can keep us safer that we can keep our self.”
Doocy then hit Napolitano with a hardball question: “So if Barack Obama could, he would ban guns in the hands of everybody except the police?”
“He has made that patently clear, his problem is the Second Amendment,” Napolitano responded.
2. Ben Carson Is Worried
Now, the likely GOP presidential candidate has a greater fear: the Advanced Placement U.S. History curriculum.
As we’ve noted, there is a new crusade in conservative circles to incite opposition to the course, with one Colorado school district attempting to replace the allegedly anti-American curriculum with one that is more “patriotic.”
Carson, a self-proclaimed historian, said this week that he is “shocked” by the advanced placement course’s emphasis on the “evils” of slavery and massacres of Native Americans, suggesting that the curriculum is a recruiting tool for terrorists: “I mean, I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS. This is what we’re doing to the young people in our nation and we have got to stop this silliness, we have got to stop crucifying ourselves.”
Carson is not alone, as Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council has also connected ISIS to the curriculum.
1. We’re Doomed
Pundit and prophet Glenn Beck has been predicting America’s demise for a while now, and the case of a man in Dallas diagnosed with Ebola after traveling from Liberia is proof enough that the U.S. is about to experience a “massive humbling.”
While he isn’t busy persecuting conservative activists, President Obama spends his time helping ISIS fighters avoid airstrikes…that he himself ordered. At least, that’s what we learned this week in the alternate reality of the far-right.
5. Stop Persecuting Tony Perkins, Says Tony Perkins
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has made it quite clear that he believes anti-gay activists like himself will soon be forced into the “boxcars” that will be “hauling off Christians” to concentration camps, and he has kept up the warnings of impending persecution while discussing the FRC’s Values Voter Summit, which starts today.
In a fundraising appeal to FRC supporters this week, Perkins warned that “American democracy simply cannot survive” the attacks coming from “far Left activists and the radical homosexual lobby.” Oh his “Washington Watch” radio show, he recounted the purported ways that Democrats and progressive groups are trying to “silence” him and overturn the First Amendment.
4. Dinesh D’Souza Is Also Being Persecuted, Of Course
After switching his plea from not guilty to guilty for making illegal campaign donations, a felony, conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced to eight months probation in a community confinement center along with psychological therapy. The sentencing prompted yet another media tour for D’Souza, who insisted that his prosecution for breaking the law — which he admitted to doing — amounts to political persecution.
D’Souza boasted in an interview with WorldNetDaily that the government was not “successful in shutting me up,” and the conservative activist told Glenn Beck that the prosecution came at the orders from the “petty” President Obama. Beck even said that D’Souza “is a political prisoner,” despite the fact that D’Souza was not sentenced to any prison time.
3. ‘National Socialism’ a-Comin’
Sen. Pat Roberts is doing whatever it takes to salvage his foundering re-election campaign, and this week he alleged that, as a result of President Obama’s time in office, “our country is heading for national socialism.”
Roberts defended his remarks by explaining that Obama wants to turn the U.S. into “a European socialistic state,” adding: “You can’t tell me anything that he has not tried to nationalize.”
And if rhetoric like that doesn’t work, Roberts will shore up his standing with the Tea Party crowd with the help of his latest booster: Sarah Palin.
2. People Who Believe In Climate Change Are Just Like Hitler
Rush Limbaugh knows the real reason people believe that human activities are influencing climate change. No, not because there is a consensus among climate scientists on the matter, but as Limbaugh explains, “it’s all politics.”
“It is a politics that intentionally insults the intelligence of people and preys on the dumb and the stupid and the weak,” Limbaugh said while definitely not projecting. In order to find “meaning in their lives,” Limbaugh explained, people start thinking they have the power to “save the planet” and start to feel “their new life has meaning” and that “they can make a difference.”
And you know who else thought he could make a difference with his life? Hitler.
“Hitler made a difference,” he said. “Stop and think about that.”
1. Obama Is Shielding ISIS While Bombing Them
Conservatives are having a difficult time rationalizing the fact that President Obama has launched hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS and other extremist groups while at the same time insisting that he is a secret Muslim and terrorist sympathizer.
Tom DeLay, for instance, said that Obama is doing nothing to stop ISIS and “ought to wear a pink t-shirt because he is an anti-war president,” while Rick Wiles wondered if Obama is protecting “his ISIS buddings” and has possibly tipped them off to U.S. airstrike targets.
American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer had his own take, arguing that the Obama administration is deliberately trying to hit empty buildings and minimize casualties among the ISIS ranks.

Are schools spending the money that they earn by giving out free condoms to finance lessons on “how to be homosexuals”? And will America survive long enough to find out?
5. The Gays Are Coming To Teach Your Children ‘How To Be Homosexuals’
On a conference call with members of his Conservative Republicans of Texas group last week, Fox News darling Steven Hotze shared his own take on the anti-gay myth that LGBT rights advocates want to legalize pedophilia and “recruit” children.
“There’s another key point of the homosexual agenda, and it’s overturning the laws prohibiting pedophilia,” Hotze asserted, bringing up of course the tiny group NAMBLA. “They want to break down the laws, they want to decriminalize sex between a man and a boy. If you can believe it, that’s how sick and deviant and perverted their minds are, it’s terrible.”
“They’ve got to do that, because they can’t reproduce, they’ve got to recruit,” he continued. “Why do you think they want to get in the Boy Scouts?”
Hotze also exposed the goal of the marriage equality movement: “If they allow same-sex marriage in Texas, folks, they’ll be passing out stuff to your children to teach them how to be homosexuals.”
4. Marriage Equality Will Bring About America’s Collapse
You might have thought Hotze’s predictions are terrifying, but he has nothing on James Dobson, who warned this week that marriage equality will cause “the entire superstructure of culture” in the United States to “ come crashing down.”
“That's happened in Rome, it happened in Greece, it's happened throughout history and I don't think that America can survive in the form we have known ... if we allow the family to disintegrate. And that is, in fact, what's happening,” he said.
3. Obama’s True Nature Revealed
Respected language analyst Rush Limbaugh knows why President Obama said in a speech last year that “I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options” to respond to a chemical weapons attack in Syria.
The words “my military,” Limbaugh said this week, reveal the president’s “messianic complex.”
“He thinks that the existence of the United States while he is president is nothing more than the story of Barack Obama.”
Limbaugh was echoing the attack of Charles Krauthammer, who picked up on the phrase to accuse Obama of being a Napoleonic “narcissist.”
Unsurprisingly, Media Matters found that George W. Bush used the exact same phrase without provoking right-wing hysterics.
2. Get Ready For A War With Mexico
The real question is whether Napolean-narcissist-messiah Obama’s military is ready to “laser or blitz” Mexico in a war over undocumented immigrants.
Republican House candidate Mark Walker of North Carolina floated the idea of a war against our southern neighbor at a Tea Party event in June.
"I will tell you if you have foreigners who are sneaking in with drug cartels to me that is a national threat," he said. "And if we got to go laser or blitz somebody with a couple of fighter jets for a little while to make our point, I don't have a problem with that either. So yeah, whatever we need to do."
1. The Free Condom Racket
Perhaps the coming U.S.-Mexico war can be financed by the profits that public schools are making off of providing free condoms.
Fox News commentator Todd Starnes joined Family Research Council president Tony Perkins this week to discuss the latest incident of "anti-Christian persecution" that has been exposed by his reporting , this time the case of a junior high school student who was asked to remove a “Virginity Rocks” t-shirt that violated her school’s dress code.
Starnes’ theory : The school was afraid that the student’s promotion of abstinence would cut into the “condom profits” it was earning by making free condoms available to students.
“Here’s my take on it, I thought it was interesting, [the student’s mom] said what’s really interesting is that any child in that junior high school can go to the counselor’s office and ask for and receive free condoms and yet her daughter cannot wear her pro-abstinence t-shirt in the public school,” Starnes said. “Here’s what I think the issue is Tony Perkins, I believe that maybe they were concerned this pro-abstinence t-shirt might cut into this school’s condom profits.”
While the entertainment industry is slyly tricking women into becoming lesbians, President Obama is forcing Americans to engage in same-sex marriages as part of his Nazi plot against America.
5. ‘Girl-On Girl Movies’ Are Making Kids Gay
Pat Robertson is back with more words of wisdom about homosexuality, sharing his views yesterday on why some people, particularly young women, are gay.
According to Robertson, Hollywood’s penchant for “girl-on-girl movies” — along with sexual abuse — is to blame.
4. Obama’s Alien/Demon Pal
Jim Garrow has managed to bring several of his anti-Obama conspiracy theories together, including his claims that Obama believes he is the Mahdi of a branch of Shia Islam, communicates with aliens and is secretly gay .
Bathhouse Barry referring to himself as the "Voice in the Wilderness, like John the Baptist for Jesus". This was in reference to his belief that he will introduce the mahdi to the world (possibly an alien as in transdimensional being) aka demon spirit. You can't make this stuff up. Obama is doing far too much blow and weed. Someone needs to curtail his meetings with Reggie Love.
3. Feminists ‘Chickifying’ The NFL
Who will speak up for the downtrodden, heterosexual male? Rush Limbaugh will, that’s who. After fretting about Michael Sam’s “assault” on heterosexuality, Limbaugh expressed his displeasure with those who are angry with the way the NFL handled the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal.
“Folks, this, none of this, this is crazy, we’re feminizing this game and it’s a man’s game and if we keep feminizing this game we’re going to ruin it, if we keep chickifying this game, we’re going to ruin it,” Limbaugh said, lashing out at the “feminized,” “politically correct” men who apparently dominate the NFL and sports media.
Limbaugh also linked the scandal to the Democratic Party (who of course are the real sexists), suggesting that NFL players are probably Democrats who abuse their wives: “‘War on women,’ these guys beating up their wives, are they all Republicans or are they voting Democrat [sic] you think? Who is really conducting the war on women here? Who is actually doing it? Who has brought all this about? All this supposed abuse on women takes place in the NFL, who are these guys, think they’re voting Republican? I kind of doubt it. I did just ask that, are these guys who are engaging in domestic violence, which is a war on women, are they voting Republican or are they voting Democrat? I think the odds are they’re voting Democrat, aren’t they?”
Media Matters captured the audio:
2. Obama Is Worse Than Hitler
Did you know that people are being forced against their will to participate in abortions and same-sex marriages?
At least, that’s the story according to Liberty Counsel head Mat Staver and his “Faith & Freedom” radio show co-host Matt Barber.
Staver, who once warned of “forced homosexuality” under Obama, said Christians have never faced such a horrible or more persecuted time in American history than they do under Obama’s presidency, and things have gotten so bad that the U.S. government is more punitive and cruel than Nazi Germany.
1. Dirty Democrats Helping ‘Uneducated’ People Vote
Unable to back up claims about the hazards of voter fraud with any actual proof, Republican officials now just seem to be giving away what their “election integrity” campaigns are all about.
Georgia state Sen. Frank Millar, for example, is upset that a government officials plan to open a polling location at a mall “dominated by African American shoppers” and “near several large African American mega churches,” and has pledged to stop the plan from going forward.
Millar explained that he isn’t upset that black people are voting, just that uneducated people (wink, wink) are voting: “I would prefer more educated voters than a greater increase in the number of voters. If you don't believe this is an efort [sic] to maximize Democratic votes pure and simple, then you are not a realist. This is a partisan stunt and I hope it can be stopped.”
Not to be outdone, Georgia’s top elections official, Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, expressed dismay that “the Democrats are working hard, and all these stories about them, you know, registering all these minority voters that are out there.” Kemp cited ACORN, a group which no longer exists, to substantiate his worries about voter fraud.
Conservative activists know the truth about President Obama’s agenda to destroy America by murdering white people, opening the border, ending the freedom of religion and aiding terrorist groups. And all of these things will happen any day now….
5. Obama Wants To Kill White People
Conservative talk show host Michael Savage is worried that readers may not get their hands on his book, “Stop the Coming Civil War,” because they may already be dead … thanks to President Obama!
Savage warned listeners that Obama is hoping to “stimulate insurrection in this country in order to declare martial law” and “mow down” white people who are protesting immigration reform.
“The most racist administration in American history,” Savage explained, has made sure that the “entire government is geared up to fight a war against white people” and gun down “all you evil white crackers.”
4. Border Vigilantes Confront Conservationists
A frequent message among anti-immigrant activists is that the federal government is refusing to do its job in guarding the border, and therefore civilians should consider joining border patrol militias to stop the purported massive flood of immigrants, sometimes with tragic results.
Calls to join such vigilante groups only increased with the rise of unaccompanied minors fleeing drug violence in Central America, even though the minors were actually seeking out border patrol officers.
This week, one of these armed groups ambushed a group of geologists who were “counting bats in a local cave” for a wildlife survey. One of the researchers told the Huffington Post, “We didn’t know what they were doing. We started hiding behind rocks. We’re not doing what they’re saying, and they’re acting kind of jumpy. … We had them yelling at us with spotlights, acting like they have some kind of authority.”
Of course, that led actual Border Patrol officers to come to the scene of the (non)crime…taking time away from their, well, actual job that they are supposedly not doing.
3. ‘Big Sodomy’ On The March
Not only are immigrants and President Obama trying to destroy America, but so is “Big Sodomy.”
According to far-right activist and BarbWire columnist Lee Duigon, “wicked officials in thrall to Big Sodomy” will “force churches to perform same-sex ‘marriage’ exercises” and make sure “pastors and priests will be punished if they speak against it.”
He goes on to warn that religious freedom and free speech will be banned due to “insatiable and unappeasable” gay rights advocates, who will force Christians in America to “form house churches, as the Christians do in China.”
“Never, never speak of a same-sex coupling as ‘marriage.’ It is no marriage, and will never be,” Duigon writes. “The hard part will be to decide what to do when they come for your children.”
2. Obama’s Clandestine Mosque Visit
Kamal Saleem, a Religious Right activist who insists he used to be a terrorist for dozens of different groups before coming to America to wage “culture jihad,” believes that the media is “suffocating the truth” about President Obama’s secret Muslim faith and support for radical Islamic terrorists.
For example, Saleem said Obama is covering up the “fact” that Obama attended a Washington, D.C. mosque on Christmas: “We see him on Christmas, he goes to the mosque, on Christmas Day he’s in a mosque in Washington D.C. taking his shoes off to celebrate that day on Christmas Day in a Washington D.C. mosque.”
Of course, Obama has actually been in his home state of Hawaii on Christmas in every single year of his presidency.
1. Obama Said ‘ISIL’ … Impeach!
As you may know, there are different translations for the group known as ISIS or ISIL. Some translate the last word of the group’s name, “al-Sham,” as Syria; others translate it as the region encompassing Greater Syria, or the Levant.
But according to Pamela Geller, President Obama uses the latter translation, “ISIL,” because he wants “to distract, dissemble, deceive and disarm the American people” by using a confusing term like “the Levant.”
Never mind the fact that Geller actually uses “ISIL” on her anti-Muslim blog and told her own readers that “the correct name is ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).” Following Geller’s own logic, she too must want to “disarm” America!
The wise Fox News anchors on “Outnumbered,” have their own idea as to why Obama uses “ISIL”…because he is “tipping his hat to them” and wants to distract Americans that he is a big failure of a president.
As Thomas Bishop of Media Matters points out, other Fox News commentators have used the acronym “ISIL” as well, but never mind that!
If President Obama is starting a race war, he will probably use his army of child migrants, gay public school students and “Muslim brothers” to join the fight. None of that will matter, of course, if Ebola sweeps across America first.
5. Child Migrants Bringing In Ebola, Probably
With Republican members of Congress including Michele Bachmann, Phil Gingrey and Todd Rokita warning that the unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border could unleash the Ebola virus on America, we shouldn’t be surprised that at least one GOP candidate for Congress is also stirring up baseless fears about immigrant children carrying Ebola.
Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin, who is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, said people wouldn’t be surprised if Central American child migrants are infected with Ebola. Tucson Weekly reports:
Tobin says he's hearing about worries from constituents that the recent wave of undocumented youth from Central America could cause an Ebola outbreak in the United States.
"Anything's now possible," Tobin said last week. "So if you were to say the Ebola virus has now entered (the country), I don't think anyone would be surprised."
Tobin acknowledged that Ebola has been limited to outbreaks in Africa, "to the extent that they're really aware of that. I think there is a reason we should be concerned about it and say, 'Hey, can you assure us the people crossing the border are not from the Middle East?' ... So I use that as an example, that the public would not be surprised to hear about the next calamity at the border."
4. Child Migrants Might Be Anti-American Warriors
If the Central American child migrants aren’t already dead from Ebola, then that means they are probably Venezuelan-trained child “warriors” who will “rise up against us as Americans” any day now. At least that is what we learned from an extremely informative and not-at-all speculative conversation between RNC Committeewoman Tamara Scott, who is also Concerned Women for America’s Iowa state director, and Texas Tea Party activist Mary Huls:
Alex Jones and William Gheen also wondered if the minors are really child soldiers who will kill Americans for “Obamaphones.”
3. Obama Wants A Race War!
Are President Obama and administration officials like Eric Holder using the Ferguson riots to launch a race war? Of course! At least that is what is occurring in the far-right fantasy land inhabited by Larry Klayman, who is warning that “the racist Obama and his henchmen like Eric Holder have succeeded in creating what in effect is a huge racial divide and race war in the nation.”
“[O]ur so-called president and his attorney general jump to judgment, on a consistent and regular basis, against ‘whitey’ and in favor of their black brothers,” Klayman said. “At this rate, it is remarkable that Obama has not renamed the White House ‘the Black House.’”
Ted Nugent agrees, arguing this week that “President Obama continues to beat the race drum” because he hopes “fanning the embers of racism will keep black Americans squarely in the corner of their big daddy Democratic Party.” Wayne Allyn Root added, “Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.”
2. Obama’s ‘Muslim Brothers’ Crafting U.S. Foreign Policy
Rep. Louie Gohmert is pretty sure that the Muslim Brotherhood is running the show in the Obama administration and has used its influence to boost extremist groups like ISIS. “If you’re commander-in-chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers,” the Texas GOP congressman said in an interview this week.
Gohmert’s House colleague Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican who thinks Obama might just be a secret Muslim, said that with the Bowe Berghdal swap, the Obama administration sent “a signal to the whole jihadist world” to kidnap Americans like James Foley.
“I’m afraid we sent the message to the terrorists, again, that this president will vacillate and not do what is necessary in times of crisis,” Franks said.
1. Gays Coming To Recruit Kids
Schools are using Common Core to brainwash your kids and turn them gay, according to the Tea Party of Louisiana, which proudly cited a satirical article from a parody news site titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay” to make its case.
When a reporter for the Times-Picayune asked the Tea Party group’s spokesman Bob Reid why his organization decided to cite an article from an outlet whose “About” page reads, “If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron,” he responded that he was simply trying to “bring attention of the Common Core issue to those who maybe aren't paying attention.”
The American Family Association is also worried about “recruitment programs” in public schools that are led by gay rights advocates who are “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.” Randy Thomasson of Save California, for his part, said schools are pressuring children to participate in a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda.”
This week, we learned about the real, sinister agendas of President Obama, the gay rights movement and Facebook.
5. Is Obama Planning To Kill 25 Million People?
No, Obama isn’t planning on killing 25 million people! “The number targeted for termination is probably much higher,” according to Sher Zieve, who posted a column this week on Obama’s genocidal plans on Matt Barber’s conservative outlet BarbWire.
Zieve claims that Obama wants to “eliminate at least 25,000,000 people” — and possibly “many more millions of us” — because he needs to make room for undocumented immigrants. She fears that after killing tens millions of Americans, Obama will then give their homes to immigrants, who will then support his political goals.
Obviously, this will happen any day now.
4. Obama Will Declare Himself ‘Dictator For Life’
In a column for Alan Keyes’ Renew America, Rev. Austin Miles said he knows for a fact that President Obama was born in Kenya because she read it on a “Kenya newspaper’s website.” Unfortunately, “it was scrubbed along with the birth certificate” as “the entire area covered up Obama’s background,” and now only Miles knows the truth.
But that is the least of his worries, as Miles also claims that the Communist Party USA stole the 2012 election and will make Obama “dictator for life.”
Let this be clear: Obama was PLACED in the Oval Office for the express purpose of destroying America. His Communist handlers (CPUSA) found him in Kenya, his birthplace, and groomed him.
The CPUSA also manipulated that second Obama "election" and if this works out like the Communists plan, that would be thelast free election in America. The plan is for Obama to use Executive Order to declare himself, Dictator for Lifein 2016.
Meanwhile the cowardly republicans and democrats who are NOT members of the Communist Party, will do nothing to stop this madness, when they could have him properly REMOVED from office. He should be promptly ESCORTED out of that office which he hijacked and taken to Federal Prison.
3. Gay Marriage Will ‘Obliterate’ Religious Freedom
The group Texas Values convened a press conference to warn their fellow Texans that marriage equality proponents don’t really care about marriage, as they only care about persecuting conservatives, undermining the state’s population growth and throwing thousands of pastors in jail.
Texas Values leader Jonathan Saenz, who in the past worried that the LGBT community wants to throw Christians in concentration camps and “terrorize women and children,” even alleged that gay rights advocates want to “destroy” marriage, “attack churches,” and make sure “religious liberty will be obliterated.”
We wonder if his over-the-top rhetoric has anything at all to do with news emerging that his ex-wife left him for another woman.
2. Facebook Is Persecuting Conservatives!
Janet Porter believes that Facebook is censoring conservatives from Kirk Cameron to Peter LaBarbera because of their views on homosexuality, and now is taking a stand for freedom by launching an alternative social media site, ReaganBook.
“I think there are some people that are threatened by freedom of speech,” she told Fox News this week. “People are used to the silencing of all dissent. That's not what this country is founded on…. ReaganBook is putting freedom on the offensive.”
But despite her claims that ReaganBook will be a haven for the freedom of speech, Porter took the website offline apparently because it had a little bit too much speech…from liberals who made fun of the website. The Faith 2 Action leader said ReaganBook will now take steps to become a “more secure site,” free “from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family.”
1. WND: Robin Williams Was Possessed
WorldNetDaily has come out with a very tasteful and respectful way to honor the late Robin Williams… by selling a movie about how Williams and other celebrities are possessed by demons.
The right-wing outlet posted an excerpt from Joe Schimmel to help promote his DVD series on Satan’s supposed role in the music industry, and Schimmel claims that Williams admitted to being possessed:
Everybody is currently talking about Robin Williams and his tragic suicide. Many are puzzled as to how a man, who made so many people laugh, could be so depressed that he would violently end his life. What people are not learning is the deeper truth about the insidious forces that tormented Robin Williams and drove him to suicide.
Robin Williams acknowledged that he had opened himself up to transformative demonic powers that aided him on stage. Without the aid of such demonic powers, it is likely that you would have never have heard of Robin Williams and many other famous celebrities. Williams also recognized that these powers had manifested a very evil influence on stage and that there could be a hefty price to pay for their assistance.
Anti-gay activists seem rather convinced that they are facing Nazi and Jim Crow-style oppression, while one Religious Right commentator hopes that Ebola will free them from gay persecution by “solving America’s problem” with homosexuality.
5) Gays Are The New Bull Connor
The Religious Right campaign to claim that they are facing horrendous, unspeakable persecution keeps getting more pathetic this week.
RedState blogger Erick Erickson, for one, is pretty sure that gay rights advocates want to transform America into a “society bent on suicide,” and have apparently adopted “the tactics of Bull Connor” to push their destructive agenda.
After channeling Bryan Fischer and Brian Brown in framing Christians in the U.S. as the victims of a new Jim Crow, the Georgia-based activist went on to say that American Christians will face dire persecution at the hands of gays: “a faith that survived its followers being used as torches to light the streets of Rome will survive a modern age hell bent on ruthlessly stamping it out.”
That wasn’t the only sad persecution article written this week, with Scott Lively writing that gays are treating Religious Right activists the same way the Nazis oppressed the Jews, and Bill Muehlenberg warning that “the cult of homosexualism” is the “coming world religion which will enslave the entire world.”
4) Michelle Nunn (And George H.W. Bush!) In With Islamic Terrorists
The pro-GOP group Ending Spending Action Fund is running a TV ad in Georgia blasting U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn for leading a foundation that “directed grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”
The advertisement refers to her time as CEO of the Points of Light Foundation, a group founded by former president George H.W. Bush.
Before Nunn even took the job, Points of Light ran a business called MissionFish that “allowed eBay sellers and buyers to direct all or part of the proceeds from a transaction to their favorite charity,” according to PolitiFact. One of the approximately 20,000 nonprofit organizations that eBay users directed proceeds to was Islamic Relief USA, a charitable group, which over a period of several years received $33,000 through the program.
Based on that damning evidence, Ending Spending’s advertisement accused Nunn of “directing grants to an Islamic group tied to radical terrorists.”
Since Bush founded the Points of Light Foundation, we wonder if Ending Spending believes the former president is also implicated in terrorism.
3) Democrats Waging ‘War On Whites’
Rep. Mo Brooks thinks the reason the GOP has a problem attracting Latino voters is because of “the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party.” Democrats, the Alabama congressman claims, tell people of color “that whites hate everybody else” in order to win their votes.
Just in case you thought that might have been a gaffe, Brooks later claimed that federal law is discriminatory against white people: “What is the one race that can be discriminated against?… All whites.”
2) God Directed Cliven Bundy To Save America
The Obama administration was just about to start taking away everyone’s guns and forming a police state until Cliven Bundy stopped them! Well, that’s what happened according to Cliven Bundy, who recently told a meeting of the Independent American Party, a Third Party to the right of the GOP, that his standoff with the federal government over his refusal to pay grazing fees was part of a spiritual battle against government tyranny:
"If the standoff with the Bundys was wrong, would the Lord have been with us?" Bundy asked, noting that no one was killed as tensions escalated. "Could those people that stood without fear and went through that spiritual experience … have done that without the Lord being there? No they couldn't."
Bundy also cited personal inspiration from God in establishing his course of action.
"The Lord told me ... if (the sheriff doesn't) take away these arms (from federal agents), we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, 'This is your chance to straighten this thing up,'" Bundy said.
In a radio interview this week, Bundy was even more explicit: “I have no idea what God wants done, but he did inspire me to have the sheriffs across the United States take away these weapons, disarm these bureaucracies, and he also gave me a little inspiration on what would happen if they didn’t do that…. It was indicated that ‘this is our chance, America, to straighten this problem up. If we don’t solve this problem this way, we will face these same guns in a civil war.’”
1) Ebola: Good Or Bad?
Rick Wiles is afraid that the Ebola outbreak will not only leave people dead, but will also be used by President Obama to create an oppressive, totalitarian government. Obama, Wiles believes, may even try to spread Ebola by pushing defective vaccines.
But maybe, maybe, Ebola isn’t so bad, Wiles explains. The End Times radio host said on one program that “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”
This week, we learn that Republican calls for impeachment are actually Democrats’ fault, see a major admission about Obama’s presidency, and explore the connections between environmental protection, the border crisis, Obamaphones, and the president’s private army.
5. Republican Calls For Impeachment Are A Democratic Plot.
We’ve always suspected that people like Bryan Fischer and Matt Barber are liberal plants sent to discredit and destroy the conservative movement from within, but we never knew how far the plot extended.
House Speaker John Boehner busted the scheme wide open this week when he declared that the idea of impeaching President Obama is “all a scam started by the Democrats at the White House” and that “this whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill” in an effort to make Republicans look extreme.
Of course, since the very beginning of Obama’s presidency, the GOP’s base has been clamoring to impeach him and remove him from office (although nobody can ever quite agree for what supposed crime).
Those calling for impeachment have even included a number of Republican members of Congress, including Rep. Steve Stockman, who distributed a book in favor of impeachment to every office on Capitol Hill .
And even after Boehner declared the whole thing to be a scam, prominent right-wing talkers including Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin continued to call for impeachment.
4. Team Obama Admits To Alinskyite Conspiracy.
WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah has found more solid proof that President Obama has launched an Alinskyite plot to destroy America: an Organizing For Action birthday card that calls the president the “Organizer in Chief.” Let Farah explain:
“Organizer in Chief”?
Isn’t that one of the derisive titles pinned on Obama by his harshest critics?
Isn’t that what Rush Limbaugh calls him?
Isn’t that what I call him?
Doesn’t the origin of that term come from Obama’s devotion to Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” the bible of radical, left-wing community organizing?
In fact, doesn’t the new hit movie “America” by Dinesh D’Souza focus quite a bit of attention on Obama’s Alinskyite community organizing roots and how he has carried this brand of activism and incitement right into the White House?
Yes to all of the above.
So why would Obama’s very own political action committee be embracing the cheeky slur against the “commander in chief”?
It’s an admission. It’s immunization. It’s a contemptuous non-repudiation of the truth. It’s classic Alinskyism on display.
3. EPA Recruting Central American Kids To Love Big Government.
Infowars put two and two together this week, noting that the Environmental Protection Agency has solicited a contractor for “Hispanic Media and Public Outreach Support” and “English to Spanish Translation Services” around the same time that thousands of Central American children are fleeing to the United States…an obvious plot to hook them early on Big Government:
The Environmental Protection Agency is targeting Spanish-only speakers in an upcoming public relations campaign, raising concerns that bureaucrats are already encouraging illegal aliens from Central America – potential future voters – to support big government.
2. Migrant Kids Will Be Used For Medical Experiments….
Rep. Michelle Bachmann brought her trademark analysis to the crisis of children fleeing violence in Central America who have come in large numbers to the southwestern American border. In an appearance on “WallBuilders Live” this week, Bachmann suggested that the Central American children will be put into the foster care system and used for medical experimentation :
1. …Or Lured With Obamaphones To Become Child Soldiers.
What could be worse than using migrant children as unwilling guinea pigs for medical experiments? How about luring them with free phones to become child soldiers in President Obama’s private army that will impose tyranny on America?
In honor of LGBT Pride Month, we have dedicated this week’s edition to looking at five of the most bizarre anti-LGBT stories coming from the Right Wing just in the past week.
5. Rick Santorum Fears Gay ‘Reeducation Camps’
Religious Right activists continue to stoke fears about gay rights supporters organizing an anti-Christian holocaust, and Rick Santorum is happy to help. The former senator and presidential candidate, out with a new film about the purported loss of religious freedom in America, warned this week that Christians in the U.S. are being sent off to “reeducation camps” and face jail and martyrdom. Santorum was speaking to none other than Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association radio host who believes gay people are to blame for the Holocaust and are modern-day Nazis.
4. Gay Gulags
If you thought Santorum’s remarks were a rare occurrence in the Religious Right, just read today’s commentary from BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen, who warns that the “gaystapo” wants its opponents “summarily shipped off on the ‘highway’ to the ‘gay’ gulag of sensitivity training — actually, reeducation camp to receive a government-provided, pro-perversity lobotomy.”
He warns about “alarming homosexual efforts at shredding the dictionary, distorting of the Constitution, creating false rights out of thin air, rewriting civil laws to criminalize deeply held moral convictions, hijacking science to promote a deviant political/social agenda, and eliminating all religious and conscience protections for business owners,” adding that “every advance of the militant ‘gay agenda’ comes at the literal expense of true democracy and freedom.”
“Many of the vindictive items on homosexual agenda are designed exactly as vengeance against their supposed oppressors,” Allen writes. “Unlike the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s in which African Americans united and fought against the truly heinous injustices of racial inequality and unprovoked acts of violence, the homosexual rights movement has no intentions of being peaceful. Nobody should fool themselves, this is a hostile takeover of America.”
3. Gays Want To Molest Their Kids
Those of you who haven’t been shipped off to a gay FEMA camp yet may want to consider this brilliant analysis by Mission America’s Linda Harvey, who this week alleged that gay parents are much more likely than others to sexually abuse their children because “when you are open to sinful, God-defying behavior in one profound way, violating other boundaries happens more easily.”
2. More GOP Rebranding
Speaking out in opposition to amendment to prohibit charter schools from discriminating in hiring on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, North Carolina House Speaker Pro Tem Paul ‘Skip’ Stam compared gay people to pedophiles and “distributed a flier titled ‘What Is A “Sexual Orientation”?’ that compares being lesbian or gay to mental disorders such as apotemnophilia (sexual arousal associated with an amputee’s stump) and coprophilia (sexual arousal associated with feces).”
The handout reportedly originated from the far-right Traditional Values Coalition. Catherine Thompson of TPM notes that “Stam did not mention that the information in his handout, which dated back to 2000, had been updated in the APA manual to classify those attractions as ‘disorders’ rather than ‘orientations,’ according to the news station.”
Local Religious Right activists quickly rushed to Stam’s defense after word of the flier got out.
This isn’t the first time Stam has tried to pull off this sort of stunt: he made similar claims while denouncing the School Violence Protect Act.
1. HIV/AIDS Cure At Pride
The latest religious group to claim to be able to cure HIV comes out of Minnesota, where an evangelical coalition is insisting that they will cure people of HIV at the upcoming Twin Cities Pride.
Andy Birkey of The Column reports that the group’s leader, Steven Uggen, believes God told him that he has the “healing power” to cure people of HIV, although most will not be grateful:
One of the words we got out of this outreach, the Lord really wanted to demonstrate his goodness to this community by releasing healing of HIV and AIDS, so we believe we’re going to see people healed of HIV and AIDS and we’re just, we’re carrying that word of the Lord into this outreach. And that will be part of our training just praying with boldness for the releasing of healing power and then sending them back to their doctors literally after praying for them. ‘Here’s what I want you to do: go to your doctor, get tested for HIV or AIDS and when you come back negative, you’ve got a decision to make whether you’re gonna serve the God who just healed you’ and then give them some gospel materials that they can take with them and encourage them to call on us and let us know and I’m confident that we’re going to have people healed of HIV and AIDS that are going to be contacting us. The funny thing is Jesus healed the 10 lepers and only one came back to acknowledge him so there may be 10 that get healed but only one come back, you know. This is a strategy that God wants to use so the very fruit of their sin is what he wants to, like, take away to show them his kindness and his goodness. I mean it’s just totally Jesus. I mean it’s like totally his way so we’re excited about that.
