Donald Trump Would Consider Tapping Sarah Palin For Future Trump Administration

Yesterday, Donald Trump appeared on “The Palin Update,” a show dedicated to all things Palin. After Trump hailed Palin as a “tough and smart” leader who bravely stood up to “disgusting lies,” host Kevin Scholla asked the GOP presidential candidate, “If there is a Trump administration, could you see picking up the phone, giving the governor a call and picking her brain on some things, or perhaps having her along in some official capacity.”

“I’d love that,” Trump replied. “Because she really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person and I think people know that.”

“Everybody loves her,” he added. Trump went on to say that unlike the former half-term Alaska governor, his current Republican rivals are “weak” and “ineffective” leaders “to a degree that’s actually almost hard to believe.”

Voters, Trump explained, “like the Sarah Palin kind of strength, you just don’t see very much of it anymore.”

Palin recently lauded Trump as a “hero” after he insisted that John McCain was “not a war hero” and said of POWs, “I like people that weren’t captured.” She said that just as McCain was a hero for surviving several years in a prison during the Vietnam War, “Donald Trump is a hero” because he is “giving voice to untold millions of fed-up Americans witnessing a purposeful destruction of our economy.”

Troy Newman: 'Cruella de Vil' Nancy Pelosi Defends Abortion Providers' 'Pedophile Protection Rackets'

Troy Newman, the leader of Operation Rescue and one of the anti-abortion activists behind the new set of Planned Parenthood smear videos, joined VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program to discuss his debunked accusations that the woman’s health organization is selling “baby parts” for profit.

Newman targeted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — or, as he called her, “Cruella de Vil” — for coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood and calling for an investigation into his group, the Center for Medical Progress.

“This is a classic deflection by the liar-in-chief, Cruella de Vil,” he said. “Who believes this woman? She’s been discredited on so many occasions, her abortion clinics are essentially pedophile protection rackets.”

“If one iota of her accusations against me are true, I would not be here, I would be sitting behind bars,” he added.

The program’s host, Jim Schneider, asked Newman about a fake quote from Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, falsely claiming that she called racial minorities "human weeds."

“That’s exactly the truth,” Newman responded.

He then went on to accuse current Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards of “targeting the minorities in this country for extermination” and repeated his false claim that it was “Ruth Bader Ginsburg who said the reason we had abortion to begin with was to have fewer people of the people we didn’t want.”

Newman claimed that Planned Parenthood places the vast majority of its clinics in minority neighborhoods in order to target people of color and “take a lot of them out.” (In reality, a study last year found that 60 percent of abortion providers are located in majority-white neighborhoods.)

“And that is the whole eugenic mindset,” he said, “that the people that they don’t like, the ivory tower rich people look down upon minorities and the poor and say we want fewer of those people because they’re a blight on society, so let’s locate our abortion clinics, birth control clinics down there and make sure we can take a few of them out, or take a lot of them out.”

Savage: Obama Paving Way For A Ban On Dogs, Acting Like Hitler On Gay Rights

On his radio program yesterday, after wondering if President Obama will begin executing his opponents, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage promoted his new book, “Government Zero: The Inside Story of the Progressive/Islamic Takeover,” along with a previous book that he wrote about his dog, Teddy.

As it turns out, the two subjects are related, as Savage claims that the “progressive/Islamic takeover” under Obama will lead to a Sharia law ban on dogs. (According to Omar Sacirbey, “while many Muslims believe scripture approves canine companions, many also believe scripture discourages Muslims from keeping dogs in their homes.”)

“Even when the communists run the country, I guess people are going to still love their dogs, unless they ban dogs,” Savage said. “You never know with the Islamism creeping into the country, there is only one religion that hates dogs. That’s an embarrassing fact, that’s an inconvenient truth. There’s only one group of people who hate dogs and he’s bringing in 100,000 of them a month.”

This led Savage to rail against Obama for making remarks supporting LGBT rights during his recent visit to Kenya: “Now he’s in Kenya lecturing his homeland about gay rights. This is beyond belief, the audacity and insanity. This guy, we have a word for it in the street that I can’t use because it’s not a family-friendly word. This guy is a crazy man.”

Savage added that the president’s comments on LGBT issues reminded him of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.

Later in the program, Savage said that Obama is sounding exactly like Hitler except for his tone, leading Savage to offer his own bizarre impression of a Hitler/Obama hybrid.

“If he screamed it like Hitler, you’d say he’s a bad man, but he speaks with a forked tongue so smoothly,” he said.

Anti-Immigrant Activist: 'Child Rapists' Coming To The US Because They’ll Get Off Easier In The Justice System

Earlier this month, Tamara Scott, a conservative lobbyist and Republican national committeewoman from Iowa, invited anti-immigration activist Jim Simpson onto her weekly radio program to discuss Donald Trump’s claims that Mexican immigrants are rapists, which Simpson heartily agreed with.

Simpson, who recently authored a report for the Center for Security Policy on how communists and Islamists are using immigration to destroy America, acknowledged that immigrants may be fleeing failing states, but added that “many” of them come to the U.S. because a fairer justice system means “they can have an easier time committing crime over here.”

“Many of the people that cross the border illegally do so because they’re people that that country just doesn’t want, and they’re coming over here because there are greener pastures over here, they can have an easier time committing crime over here,” he explained.

“We have a legal system that is much more favorable to the defendant than, let’s say, Mexico, where a lot of these child rapists wouldn’t last a week in a Mexico prison, and so they come here instead. And that’s a big part of the problem. We’re attracting all kinds of very, very bad people by our loose immigration policies and our open borders policies being promoted by this, as far as I’m concerned, treasonous president.”

Scott responded that even if most immigrants weren’t child rapists, as Simpson alleged, lenience toward undocumented immigrants would still be a betrayal of the founding fathers, because “we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

“Here’s the deal,” she said. “We have the freedoms and liberties we have in this country because we allowed our forefathers, our ancestors, they fought, they risked it all, they gave oftentimes the ultimate price to ensure the unalienable rights that we have endowed by our Creator. And the fact that this country was built upon that very premise, that we recognized a Providence, a Supreme Being, mentioned four times in our Declaration in one way or another, we honored the God who we felt gave us the protection to start this country and to bless this country. So we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

Donald Trump Denies Existence Of Climate Change: 'Bad Weather'

After praising Sarah Palin as a great leader who may one day serve in a Trump White House, Donald Trump told “Palin Update” host Kevin Scholla yesterday that climate change is a myth and dismissed concerns that it poses a security threat.

“The real climate change is going to be nuclear climate change if we’re not smart and tough and very, very careful because that’s a big danger and that’s a real danger,” Trump said. “I think Obama just said that the biggest threat that we have on the planet today is climate change, and a lot of people are saying, did he really say that? We have people chopping off heads and he’s talking about climate change. I call it weather. I call it weather. You know, the weather changes.”

Trump continued his explanation by ranting about weather forecasts on the news: “You look back and they were calling it global cooling and global warming and global everything, but if you look back and the biggest tornados were in the 1890s, the biggest hurricanes were in the 1860s and 1870s. It’s weather. You’re going to have bad weather. So often I watch the evening newscasts and every time there is a rainstorm some place, and then they wonder why they don’t do well, they say, ‘It’s raining here and it’s raining there,’ usually leading the program. I call it weather. Maybe there’s a little bit of change, I don’t happen to believe it’s manmade.”

'Love And Sex Are Not Synonymous': The Right's Latest Feeble Effort To Defeat #LoveWins

Anti-gay activists have been reeling ever since the Supreme Court issued its ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. In response, David Barton and Rick Green interviewed Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University on "WallBuilders Live" today, seeking his advice about how Christians should now go about arguing against gay marriage in the face growing support for marriage equality..

Piper, Green and Barton were all convinced that they have truth and logic on their side when, in reality, their arguments were little more than straw men that are capable of convincing only people who already shared their convictions.

For instance, all three men were all extremely impressed with their argument that sex does not equal love, which is the sort of thing that only works on people who refuse to realize that gay couples can actually love one another.

Piper explained that the best way to combat the "love wins" argument is simply to point out that "sex and love aren't the same thing."

"This isn't about love, it's about sex," he said, "so call a spade a spade. Define your terms. The debate in the culture right now is a debate of what sexual acts is acceptable, it's not a debate about love, so distinguish between the two. There are lots of people I love that I don't have sex with, nor should I have sex with. Love and sex are not synonymous, period!"

Gay sex, of course, was decriminalized over a decade ago, so obviously the marriage movement was not about seeking permission to have sex, but rather about committed couples wanting to express their love and have their families recognized and protected by the law.

But despite the obvious absurdity of Piper's argument, Green was convinced.

"That's good," he cooed. "You're spot-on, brother."

Barton was equally impressed.

"That's a great point. Love and sex are not the same thing," he said. "You don't have sex with everyone you love and because you have sex with someone doesn't mean you love them and so we've given away that argument. Sex equals love? No, it does not. It never has. It doesn't with prostitution ... That's a great point."

The fact that these men cannot even comprehend the possibility that gay couples might be having sex because they are in love does not bode particularly well for their efforts to win the battle against the idea that "love wins."

Alveda King: 'Chemicals And Things' In Birth Control Make Women Infertile

Anti-abortion activist Alveda King claimed in a radio interview yesterday that female journalists may be hesitant to be critical of abortion rights because they have had abortions themselves or have been rendered infertile by “the chemicals and things that they try to use for birth control.”

King was discussing with Rebecca Maxwell, guest host of the “Steave Deace Show,” the recent set of videos smearing Planned Parenthood by suggesting that the organization sells fetal tissue for profit. The media was forced to cover these videos, King said, even though they had been “hesitant to deal with” legal abortion in general, perhaps because of their own personal histories.

“One reason that people have been hesitant to deal with it: shame, secrecy,” she explained. “And even if you think about the media, how do we know [whether a journalist who] is reporting this information has had to grapple with abortion or loss of fertility through using the chemicals and things that they try to use for birth control?"

"There are so many layers," she added. "How do we know that the men themselves weren’t involved in having their own child aborted? So it’s bringing it right up to you, it’s unavoidable, it’s true.”

The myth that hormonal birth control causes long-term infertility has been debunked by no less a flaming liberal outfit than Fox News, which notes that the “birth control and infertility myth has been circling around since the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the pill in 1960.”

No to ALEC: California Fights Back

This post was written by Johnson Pham, a Young People For fellow.

Last Wednesday, I joined thousands of folks as we gathered together to rally against the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) during their annual meeting in San Diego. This was a massive protest to resist this right-wing organization, and they were met with many faces including workers, community organizers, faith-based leaders, and an assortment of other progressives.

ALEC is a national, corporate-funded organization that marries the interests of conservative legislators and corporate lobbyists. ALEC has been instrumental in drafting harmful legislation in many states, ranging from the “Stand Your Ground” law in Florida, to legislation  weakening environmental sustainability measures, to bills challenging women’s access reproductive health services. Notorious allies of ALEC include figures like Scott Walker and the Koch brothers.

ALEC pays for legislators to go on extravagant trips, where they collaboratively write legislation to be introduced word-for-word in their home states. ALEC’s event at the Hilton in San Diego was one of these opulent vacations afforded to legislators, and their presence in California was naturally met by resistance from progressive groups, who have clear stakes in resisting flagrant conservatism.

I went to this rally with the United Domestic Workers (UDW) Local 3930, a worker union that represents home-care providers in California. Homecare providers are one of the targets of ALEC, which has written bills targeting worker unions and pushing lower wages and benefits. We arrived at the Embarcadero Marina Park in San Diego close to noon and were met by hundreds of other progressives who greeted everyone with an embrace. It was truly a staggering experience to see such unconditional love and community expressed across the board.

The speak-out portion of the rally was studded with champions from the labor movement, including the legendary Dolores Huerta, who co-founded the United Farm Workers (UFW) movement and now sits on the board of PFAW. Dolores has been one of my heroes since I learned who she was, and I had the opportunity to meet her in living flesh at the rally. She spoke with conviction and presence and talked about our individual ability to bring others into the movement. She implored us to never give up this good fight, and communicated her love for this community and for the movement.

pham and dolores

The rally was a short walk from the park to the hotel, where folks continued to give their testimonies about why they are in this fight, and the challenges we face. This continued until 5PM, until hotel security brought in a squadron of police officers in response to rumors of a civil disobedience action occurring soon in the hotel lobby. I left the rally on my bus with the union, and we were unified in our sweat, laughter, and fulfillment from the day.

As a new YP4 fellow, I shared a lot about my love for the labor movement during our regional retreat, and this experience has only further cemented this deep-set appreciation. As someone who comes from a working-class background, there I’m deeply committed to making sure that families do not have to struggle to feed themselves or their children. Seeing for myself how resilient working families are in the face of billionaires and their lobbyists gives me incredible hope for this movement.

alec rally

Corporate-backed institutions like ALEC are antithetical to the values my parents passed to me when I grew up, like having respect and compassion for everyone, and supporting the people who need it the most. I learned from this action that this collective movement is larger than what I could have ever believed. That this movement consistsed of leaders who came before me, my elders, and will continue on past what I will be able to do in this line of work. It is indisputable that ALEC got the point that they are not welcome or liked in California, and even now, organizers behind the protest are getting ready for a follow-up action in the coming weeks.

The fight continues.

Religious Right Hero Vladimir Putin Okays Polygamy, Sharia Law

Vladimir Putin has become a bona fide hero to American Religious Right activists, who see him as a conservative Christian counterweight to President Obama and his support for LGBT equality. Anti-gay activists, for instance, rallied around the Russian leader after the Kremlin approved a ban on speech dealing with “homosexual propaganda” to minors.

Evangelist Franklin Graham hailed Putin as a hero for taking “a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda” even as “America’s own morality has fallen so far on this issue”; Bryan Fischer called Putin a “lion of Christianity” and called upon U.S. lawmakers to adopt similar speech prohibitions; Matt Barber marveled that Putin was able to “out-Christian our once-Christian nation”; Sam Rohrer called Putin “the moral leader of the world”; Scott Lively lavished praise on Putin for “championing traditional marriage and Christian values”; and Rush Limbaugh applauded Putin for stopping “a full-frontal assault on what has always been considered normalcy.”

Officials with the World Congress of Families have lauded Putin as a savior of the entire world. The group  organized a meeting for conservative activists at the Kremlin, which also played host to Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, who traveled to Russia to defend the country’s anti-LGBT crackdown in face of a Western “attempts to silence those of us who stand for the truth of marriage.”

Much of Putin’s anti-LGBT stance is part of a broader campaign to discredit the European Union, antagonizing nationalists to rise up against the EU and its support of progressive values like LGBT rights, and empower the Russian Orthodox Church.

U.S. Religious Right activists have prioritized their absolute contempt for the LGBT community above solidarity with Protestants in Russia, who have come under attack by the state and its allies in the Orthodox Church, which views evangelicals as heretics. Protestants in the occupied area of eastern Ukraine have faced violent attacks from Putin-backed forces.

Seeing that American conservatives are more than happy to ignore Putin’s campaign against Protestantism since he is, after all, the defender of traditional marriage against gay rights, it is more than likely that they will look the other way now that he is “potentially allowing — or at the very least turning a blind eye to — polygamy among Russia’s estimated 16 million Muslims.” 

Julia Ioffe explained in Foreign Policy last week that the Russian government allowed for a friend of Chechnya’s leader to take a second wife in a case that received widespread attention in the country.

As Ioffe writes, “Christian warrior Vladimir Putin” has allowed for the Chechen government to enforce Islamic religious law within its boundaries. Putin’s decision to allow Chechnya to become “a small Islamic state within the borders of the Russian Federation” has paved the way for the legalization of polygamy.

Ioffe points to a case where a teenage girl was married to a 57-year-old police chief who was already married at the time in an arrangement that had all the appearances of a forced marriage. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who, like Putin, has a notorious human rights record, made sure that the wedding took place and even appeared at the reception.

One of polygamy’s noted defenders ended up being the country’s foremost supporter of the “homosexual propaganda” law: Yelena Mizulina. Ioffe writes:

[W]hen a lone member of the parliament proposed a law criminalizing polygamy, the initiative was duly shot down by Yelena Mizulina, the parliamentarian who was among the most vocal supporters of Russia’s anti-gay laws and other “traditional values” initiatives. Criminalizing polygamy, Mizulina said, was “absurd.” The reason for polygamy, she argued was that “there are not enough men, the kind with whom women would want to start a family and have children.” Last week, Mizulina was promoted to the upper chamber of parliament.

Mizulina authored the ban on “homosexual propaganda” and pushed through a law “banning the adoption of Russian orphans by gay couples, unmarried couples and single people in countries where same-sex marriage is legal.”

Putin’s “ombudsman for children’s rights — who was behind Russia’s ban on American adoptions,” Ioffe adds, justified the wedding by claiming that “in the North Caucasus, puberty hits earlier, so 16 was a great age for marrying. ‘There are places where women shrivel up by 27,’ he said.”

The Religious Right’s support for Putin, an authoritarian leader who has infringed on basic liberties and the democratic process, undermined the freedom of religion, particularly for Protestants, and allowed for the creation of a Sharia law enclave where polygamy is legal, once again proves that for a certain segment of American conservatives, everything comes down to opposing homosexuality.

Michael Savage Wonders If Obama Will Introduce Guillotines To Execute Critics

Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” conservative talk radio host Michael Savage said that he recently spoke with a friend who worried that the U.S. is “going to wind up with guillotines, hanging us all, anyone they don’t like.”

Savage explained, sarcastically, that such a thing would never happen…just as it would never happen that an “imposter” president would “do a deal with a terrorist state like Iran giving them a path to a nuclear bomb.”

“Obama is a criminal president,” he continued. “Obama has committed one crime against this nation after another and he continues to get away with it.”

Matthew Hagee: Christians Will Soon Be Designated 'Enemies Of The State'

On Sunday, Matthew Hagee delivered a sermon warning the congregation at Cornerstone Church that they are on the verge of being declared "enemies of the state" by a hostile government that may soon begin locking Christian pastors up in prison.

"We find ourselves in a world where we can no longer take for granted the freedom we have to worship," Hagee said. "We must ask the question: Are Bible-believing Christians in danger of losing the liberty of practicing their faith? Do we now live in a world where those who believe and obey the Ten Commandments run the risk of being declared enemies of the state? A few years ago, this question would have seemed extreme; today, it cannot be ignored."

Just as Christians in Iran are imprisoned for preaching the Gospel, Hagee warned that soon the same thing could begin to happen in America now that "our government has legalized by a vote of 5 to 4 what God calls an abomination."

"How have we become so confused that we celebrate one athlete's sex change and call it courageous and we boo another athlete's willingness to bend his knee in the end zone and thank God for his physical strength and ability?" he asked, comparing Caitlyn Jenner to Tim Tebow.

"We call an act of terrorism on an army base 'workplace violence,'" he continued, "and we identify someone who goes to church, reads his Bible and owns a gun as an extremist. We give a half billion dollars a year to the murderous organization Planned Parenthood, who, in the name of science, take the dollars that you earn at your job and use them to sell the severed heads of unborn children and then we turn around and threaten churches with the loss of their tax exempt status if they refuse to bless sodomy at the altars and teach it to their children in the schools."

Christians may soon find themselves tagged as enemies of the state, Hagee declared, and so they must decide today "whose side are you on?"

Chuck Norris: Hillary Clinton Will Use Massive Voter Fraud To Win

For most of President Obama’s time in office, he has been dogged by accusations from the far-right that he is trying to fulfill a 1966 plan laid out by sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven “to wipe out poverty” by encouraging everyone who is eligible for welfare to register for such aid in order to create a severe financial strain on the federal government, which could then be pressured into “establishing a guaranteed annual income.”

Actor Chuck Norris writes in the far-right outlet WorldNetDaily today that the “Cloward-Piven strategy” will ultimately lead to massive voter fraud that will propel Hillary Clinton into the White House.

Norris explains that the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, which requires state governments to offer people an opportunity to register to vote when applying for a driver’s license or other social services, will be used by states to “extend voting rights to illegals.” While actual cases of such voter fraud are extremely low, Norris believes that “these new drivers and voters, who have flooded and are still flooding into our country through porous borders, are also at the heart of plan to overload the U.S. welfare system under the Cloward-Piven strategy.”

“You see, it’s a win-win-win-win-win-win to socialist Cloward-Piven progressives like Obama and Hillary,” he writes. “Illegals flood the country; illegals get driver’s licenses; illegals get voter rights; illegals get welfare benefits; illegals overload the U.S. welfare system; illegals keep progressives in office, who crown the Cloward-Piven strategy and the fundamental transformation of America as a victory.”

President Bill Clinton signed the Motor Voter Bill into law and none other than Richard Cloward and his wife, Frances Piven, were standing behind him as he did. Even Wikipedia explains that Cloward was a “primary motivator” for the passage of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 known as “Motor Voter,” which forces states’ department of motor vehicles to offer voter registration. Sounds so benign, right? Hold on.

What’s not surprising is how the “Motor Voter” law has morphed to incorporate more Cloward-Piven-Clinton strategies. For example in Oregon, legislators have just enacted a subsidiary law that registers a person to vote when they obtain or renew a state driver’s license. That might sound all fine and dandy, too, until one realizes that a stone’s throw away in neighboring states like California, they are doling out licenses to 1.5 million illegals over the next three years. How long will it be until California’s Motor Voter laws extend voting rights to illegals, too?

And California is not alone. Nevada and Washington – also butting up against Oregon’s borders, have also joined the ranks of states offering access to driver’s licenses despite immigrant status. And don’t forget Hawaii, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C., which are also a part of that non-citizen driver’s license distribution union, according to the National Immigration Law Center.

You see, it’s not a coincidence either that these new drivers and voters, who have flooded and are still flooding into our country through porous borders, are also at the heart of plan to overload the U.S. welfare system under the Cloward-Piven strategy. As Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa told WND: “I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory.



You see, it’s a win-win-win-win-win-win to socialist Cloward-Piven progressives like Obama and Hillary. Illegals flood the country; illegals get driver’s licenses; illegals get voter rights; illegals get welfare benefits; illegals overload the U.S. welfare system; illegals keep progressives in office, who crown the Cloward-Piven strategy and the fundamental transformation of America as a victory.

Fischer: Obama 'Rude' To Criticize Laws Criminalizing Homosexuality

On Friday, Bryan Fischer blasted President Obama ahead of his trip to Kenya over reports that Obama would use the trip as an opportunity to criticize the country's laws that make homosexuality a crime punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment. Over the weekend, Obama did exactly that, but his criticism was promptly dismissed by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, and now Fischer is outraged that Obama was so "rude" and is heaping praise upon African nations that maintain harsh anti-gay laws.

African leaders, Fischer said on his radio program today, know that "there is something abnormal, there is something immoral, there is something unhealthy, there is something unnatural about homosexual behavior" because the continent has been ravaged by AIDS.

"These political leaders know what homosexual behavior does," he said, and they "want something better for the African people than what homosexual conduct give them."

These leaders do not need someone like Obama lecturing them, Fischer continued, because they "are more enlightened" than the United State on this issue.

"We are smart enough, we are bright enough, we are intelligent enough, we are sane enough to make this kind of behavior contrary to public policy," Fischer said, as he approvingly laid out what he believes the correct African position on this issue to be. "We're not going to embrace it, we're not going to promote it, we're not even going to make it legal."

Nevertheless, President Obama went to Kenya and criticized laws criminalizing homosexuality which, Fischer said, "in my mind just makes him rude."

Michael Savage Hopes Donald Trump Becomes A Dictator Who 'Rules By Decree'

On Thursday, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage couldn’t contain his glee at the prospect of Donald Trump actually winning the presidential election. Savage once again showered the GOP frontrunner with praise, this time for making a speech criticizing immigration in the Texas border town of Laredo.

When a listener called in to argue that Trump wouldn't be able to work with other policymakers, Savage responded that Trump should simply rule by decree:

We have Obama, who has dug his heels in and is ruling by fiat. He’s not ruling with the consent of the opposition party. We have a de facto dictatorship right now, we need a de facto dictatorship from the other side of the aisle for 50 years to straighten out the mess that was created from Bill Clinton going forward. I disagree with you. If what we have devolved to in this nation is no longer a nation of checks and balances and no longer a nation of ruling by consensus but ruling by decree, then I would say then Trump is even more important than ever because let him rule by decree and let him straighten the country out and let him start with a fence on the Mexican border. He can probably order that fence built by the illegals themselves.

Later in the program, Savage described Trump as the bold white leader that Americans have been praying for all this time.

“We’ve finally seen a white man with you know what,” Savage said. “Finally a white man stood up with you know what and said ‘go to hell’ to his enemies and if you don’t like it go take a walk. America’s been waiting for him, they’ve been praying for him.”

Klingenschmitt: Remove Your Sons From The Boy Scouts Before They Are Abused By Gay Child Molesters

Today, the Boy Scouts National Executive Board is expected to lift the organization's ban on gay scout leaders and Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt is not happy about it, warning parents on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today to remove their sons from the organization before they are molested.

"If your boy is in one of those organizations, you need to get the out of there," Klingenschmitt said, "because what they're going to do is promote homosexual men to mentoring and camping with your boys in the woods and it will lead to child abuse."

He went on to cite Matthew 18:6 to declared that it would be better for these gay child molesters to be tossed into the sea and drowned than to be allowed to "cause a child to sin," praying that God will "rescue the Boy Scouts organization from this political correctness that has openly forced men who are guilty of all kinds, who are openly admitting that they are engaged in all kinds of sodomy."

The Boy Scouts are "thumbing their nose at God," Klingenschmitt warned, as he begged God's forgiveness because the organization is opening the door to "the abusers and the molesters who will take advantage of this and will cause harm to innocent children."

GOP Rep. Massie: Emanuel AME Church Experienced Massacre Because They 'Disallowed Guns'

Earlier this month, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., appeared on “The Tom Roten Show” to criticize the House leadership’s handling of an appropriations bill which ended up not receiving a vote because of an amendment to remove the Confederate flag from federal grounds.

The House GOP tried to block a Democratic amendment to a bill on funding for the Department of Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency that would have banned the “Confederate battle flag’s display at federal parks and cemeteries administered by the National Park Service, as well as the sale of items displaying it,” throwing the body into chaos and delaying a vote on the bill.

“We’re having this debate because of the unfortunate circumstance that happened in South Carolina and my hearts go out to those people,” Massie said. “But I will say this: I am glad they are blaming a flag and not a gun this time because usually they are blaming the gun. They look for everything that could be wrong except for the real reason here and they go after it.”

The congressman said the Mother Emanuel AME Church could have prevented the shooting but didn’t: “This particular church disallowed any guns coming into the church, another gun-free zone, which makes people less safe. I think that’s why this time they wanted to have the debate on a flag instead of a gun because they realize that a gun would have been the only way to stop this.”

“I talked about these before, I call these weapons of mass distraction,” he continued. “When something this small gets blown up to this level and consumes all the news cycles and all of our time on the floor of the House of Representatives, watch out because they are doing something else in the other hand that you can’t see.”

Horowitz: 'Obama Hates America,' 'Hates Our Military' And 'Imports Terrorists'

In an interview with Indianapolis talk radio host Greg Garrison last week, conservative activist David Horowitz railed against President Obama’s stance on immigration and his handling of the recent shooting of military service members in Chattanooga, claiming that Obama is trying to bring in immigrants who either carry deadly diseases or only want to come to the U.S. to kill Americans.

“When you let tens of thousands of illegals just run across your border, you import them, which is what Obama’s doing, from South America, which has bad health care and a bad environment, you’re going to import disease and kill Americans when you open your borders and bring in and allow — this isn’t even illegal, he’s importing Somalis and Nigerians and Yemenis,” Horowitz said. “We’re importing terrorists.”

He said that “Obama and the communists in the White House and the Democratic Party” show preference for people of “a darker shade of skin” while they “show their contempt for Americans at every turn.” Horowitz was also angry that the president ordered that public buildings fly the flag at half-staff five days after the Chattanooga shooting rather than earlier, leading him to conclude that “Obama hates America. He hates the Marines. He hates our military. He likes the Islamists.”

“Wake up America,” he continued. “There’s only one conservative who is even near to talking like this and that’s [Donald] Trump and that’s why he’s way ahead.”

Barton: Adding A Woman To The $10 Bill Would 'Denigrate' The Treasury Department And Our Entire Economic System

Last month, the Treasury Department announced that a woman would be featured on the $10 bill when it is redesigned in 2020 and David Barton was so outraged that he brought the National Review's Quin Hillyer onto his "WallBuilders Live" radio program today to explain why this decision is so "outrageous and ignorant."

As Hillyer explained, the change is really nothing more than an attempt to "erase our history."

"I think there is something worse afoot," he said. "You combine this with all sort of other things they've done and it looks to me like they literally want to erase our history, especially the respect in which our founding is held. They want to remake this country; in fact, as Obama said, to transform America, and you don't transform America from what it was without trying to erase what it was. And part of the erasure involves making everybody forget what the values were, what the principles were that guided our founding. And so they want to destroy respect for those values and principles and this is part of that mission."

"People really do need to get outraged and stay outraged about this," Hillyer continued, "because this isn't just about a face on a bill, this is about maintaining, preserving, respecting, honoring the history, the good history of the greatest nation ever created on earth."

For his part, Barton claimed that adding a woman to the $10 bill would "denigrate" the Department of Treasury and, by extension, our entire economic system, while Barton's co-host Rick Green declared that such a move would be "bad news for the history of our country."

Pat Robertson: 'Ask God Why He Didn't Kill' Justices Behind Roe V. Wade

Pat Robertson, who once asked God to remove justices from the Supreme Court in order to give President Bush more opportunities to appoint conservatives to the bench, wondered on today’s edition of “The 700 Club” why God didn’t punish the justices behind the Roe v. Wade decision.

“You’ll have to ask God why he didn’t kill them,” Robertson said, somewhat facetiously, before noting that “it’s in God’s hands whether they live a long life” since he’s “not in charge of the death or life of the Supreme Court judges.”

Robertson’s remarks came in response to a viewer who asked the televangelist why the justices were able to “live to be such an old age, after committing such a despicable act that has brought a curse upon the land?”

He blamed the decision on the justices’ use of “stuff from Planned Parenthood,” before going into a rant about how Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger looked down on black people and Southern white Protestants. As we’ve noted in the past, Sanger’s views on race have been badly distorted by the Right.
