Roger Stone And Alex Jones Will Put Ball Gags In Their Mouths For Donald Trump

On Monday, Roger Stone spoke with Alex Jones about the firing of Donald Trump’s campaign manager (and Stone nemesis) Corey Lewandowski along with a rally that Stone and Jones are planning to hold to oppose any effort at the Republican National Convention to “steal” the GOP presidential nomination away from Trump.

“Come hell or high water, I’m coming,” Jones said of the upcoming rally in Cleveland. “Come hell or high water, everybody needs to be there.”

The two claimed that local officials are trying to stoke violence among the various RNC demonstrators, which led Jones to wonder if they should hold a rally before the convention where “we all wear gag balls in our mouth.”

“If they steal the nomination, it will cause a revolution,” Jones said. “They’re that arrogant, though. Obviously, common sense is, he’s won more votes than any Republican in history, he’s the nominee, he’s the populist, he’s got 25 percent of blacks going for him, Republicans can’t even get 10 percent, he’s got the gays all behind him now, he’s reaching out, we’re finding the real Donald Trump that you and I already knew. It’s total victory.”

Jones said that if Trump is somehow defeated at the convention, we will reach the point where he will be forced to give blowjobs to people like George Will: “At what point do I not get on my knees then and bow down and ask George Will to pull it out? Do I bow to George Will and say no to George Will, ‘I’m not getting on my knees and do a you know what’?”

“See you in Cleveland and get your gag ready,” Stone said.

E.W. Jackson Claims Trump Didn't Say The Thing His Own Video Shows Him Saying

Earlier today, right-wing activist E.W. Jackson tweeted out a short video of Donald Trump telling a gathering of Religious Right activists not to be "politically correct" and just blindly pray for all elected officials (as the Bible instructs) but to pray specifically for him and his campaign.

"You can pray for your leaders, and I agree with that, pray for everyone," Trump said, "but what you really have to do is you have to pray to get everybody out to vote, and for one specific person. We can’t be politically correct and say we pray for all of our leaders because all of your leaders are selling Christianity down the tubes, selling the evangelicals down the tubes, and it’s a very, very bad thing that’s happening."

Sure, you can offer up rote and generic prayers for leaders if you want, Trump was telling these activists, but you should really concentrate on offering up your real prayers for me and my presidential campaign and not those leaders who "are selling Christianity down the tubes."

Shortly after this meeting, Jackson hosted a conference call where he insisted that Trump did not say what Jackson's own video showed him saying.

"Let me just address one thing that he said during our steering committee meeting," Jackson stated, "when he said, 'Don't buy this political correctness you gotta pray for everybody' ... There are some people who say, 'Oh, Donald Trump said don't pray for all your leaders, only pray for him.' Look, folks, I was in the room. Donald Trump acknowledged that we're supposed to pray for everybody. He acknowledged that. But what he was trying to say was, after that he said don't let political correctness stop you from realizing I gotta pray for everybody [but] you gotta pray for this campaign, you have got to pray for new leadership in this country."

"Basically, he didn't say it quite the way I would say it," Jackson continued, "but he made clear we do have some specific prayers that we need to be praying right now. I don't disagree with that and I never interpreted anything he said as don't pray for everybody, just pray for me. This is the idiocy that you get from the left, they want to try to twist and turn everything but that is not what he said. I was in the room, I wasn't 15 feet from the man when he was talking about those issues. He was saying, 'Don't say we're just praying for everybody because you can pray for everybody but right now, we have to get very specific about praying for a specific outcome in this election."

Family Research Council Tries To Stop Bill Helping Vets Access Fertility Services

The Family Research Council, which routinely maligns gay military service members, is now attacking a bill that would make it easier for veterans to access fertility services if they have been wounded in combat, claiming that it undermines “pro-life” principles.

The Military Times reports that the group believes the bill may open the door to “human cloning” and “3-parent embryos” and may aid treatments that lead to the destruction of embryos:

A prominent conservative group hopes to derail a congressional effort to give wounded veterans access to fertility services through the VA, saying it could lead to human cloning and three-parent embryos.

The Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council sent an email last week to congressional staff working on the final Military Construction and Veterans Affairs appropriations bill, voicing opposition to a provision that would require the Veterans Affairs Department to cover fertility services for former troops with injuries that cause infertility.

In the email, an FRC representative called the language in the Senate bill, penned by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., “terrible,” adding that it was "broad enough to cover reproductive technologies from IVF to human cloning to 3-parent embryos.”

“It does not have any restrictions on whether treatment would include the creation of human embryos, the storage of or freezing of human embryos or whether and how embryos that are left over would be destroyed,” according to the correspondence.

Roughly 1,800 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans received injuries to their groins, genitalia or spinal cords that make it difficult to have children without medical assistance, and while the Defense Department provides some advanced fertility treatments to these service members while they are on active duty, the VA is barred by law from doing so.

Since 2012, Murray has pressed her fellow lawmakers to cover fertility services for these veterans, most recently in a rider to the fiscal 2017 VA funding bill.

In the email, the FRC said the Murray provision “violates principles … which pro-lifers have fought to maintain for years.”

Donald Trump Taps Michele Bachmann, James Dobson & Other Far-Right Leaders For Advisory Board

Today, Donald Trump’s campaign announced the formation of his Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, which includes right-wing figures ranging from ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann to Focus on the Family founder James Dobson.

After retiring from Congress on the heels of a campaign scandal, Bachmann has not let up in her radical preaching.

According to Bachmann, the September 11 attacks represented God’s judgment on America; President Obama and gay rights advocates are bringing about the End Times; homosexuality is “personal enslavement” and “part of Satan”; gay people want to change laws “so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually”; and Obamacare death panels will literally kill people any day now.

Texas-based televangelist Kenneth Copeland is also on the advisory board even though God told him that Ted Cruz would be the next president. Like Trump, Copeland has been implicated in financial scandals and preaches against vaccines, which may have been a reason that one of his churches suffered a measles outbreak.

Copeland also claims the ability to cure PTSD and Ebola.

Dobson, who once said that he could not support Trump, has a long history with the anti-LGBT Right, warning that gay marriage will lead to a second civil war and pastors going to prison, as well as ushering in the destruction of religious freedom, God’s judgment on America and the transformation of the U.S. into Nazi Germany. He even linked same-sex marriage to the Sandy Hook shooting.

Other board members include Richard Land, who claims gay people are satanic and once lost a radio show after making racist, plagiarized statements, and Harry Jackson, a Maryland pastor who preaches about gay people trying to recruit children and prays against the demons behind same-sex marriage:

The group also include Southern Baptist pastor Ronnie Floyd, who has written about how “Satan has taken his tool of homosexuality, a gross and evil sin, and done a con job on the American culture.”

Also on the list is Robert Jeffress, whobelieves that gays and lesbians are ‘perverse’ people who are either pedophiles or likely to abuse children in the future; has compared homosexuality to bestiality and called it ‘a miserable lifestyle’; accused gay people of using ‘brainwashing techniques’ to have homosexuality ‘crammed down our throats’; said that gay people ‘are engaged in the most detestable, unclean, abominable acts you can imagine’; predicted that the gay rights movement ‘will pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist’; and labeled homosexuality a ‘filthy practice’ that will lead to the ‘implosion of our country.’”

Televangelist James Robison is another member:

And yet it was just the other day that Donald Trump was fashioning himself as a champion of the LGBT community.

Falwell: 'Every Terrorist In The World Will Crawl Under A Rock' When Trump Becomes President

Today, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. hailed Donald Trump as a “bold and fearless leader” ready to fight America’s enemies and bad trade partners.

Falwell, speaking at the Religious Right meeting with the presumptive GOP nominee, said that just as Ronald Reagan freed the hostages in Iran upon taking office (he didn’t), Trump will similarly scare terrorism out of existence: “In my opinion, the day after Trump becomes president, every terrorist in the world will crawl under a rock in similar fashion.”

The video was posted by anti-LGBT activist E.W. Jackson:

Trump: We Can't Pray For Our Leaders Because They're 'Selling Christianity Down The Tubes'

This post has been updated.

Today, Donald Trump met with Religious Right leaders in New York, and one of those far-right activists, E.W. Jackson, posted video from the meeting of Trump mocking the request — rooted in the Bible — of praying for those in authority.

[...Anything] about Hillary in terms of religion. She’s been in the public eye for years and years and yet there’s nothing out there, there’s, like, nothing out there. She’s going to be an extension of Obama but it’s going to be worse because with Obama you had your guard up, with Hillary you don’t and it’s going to be worse. So, I think people were saying, some of the people were saying, ‘Let’s pray for our leaders.’ Well, you can pray for your leaders, and I agree with that, pray for everyone, but what you really have to do is you have to pray to get everybody out to vote, and for one specific person. We can’t be politically correct and say we pray for all of our leaders because all of your leaders are selling Christianity down the tubes, selling the evangelicals down the tubes, and it’s a very, very bad thing that’s happening.

In another video, Trump called himself a “tremendous believer” and reiterated his pledge to make department stores like Macy’s post signs saying “Merry Christmas.”

 

Pat Robertson: God Will Punish Us For Satanic Abortion Rights

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson railed against America’s “culture of death” that “delights in killing people,” warning that God will soon punish America for making abortion legal.

Robertson said that “we have to look at the spiritual roots” of abortion rights, blaming the right to abortion on Satan: “The enemy of our soul is Satan and he hates people, he hates human beings, and the idea is if humans can kill other humans, the devil wants to do everything to help it.”

“It’s a shocking holocaust,” he said. “And we as Americans seem to think it’s okay. Well, it’s not okay. And one day, a righteous, holy God is going to demand an accounting for every drop of blood that has been spilled of innocent, unborn babies. And we just keep it mind, when it happens it’s going to be awful.”

Glenn Beck: If America Will Just Humble Itself And Turn To God, 'He Will Ensure Your Survival'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck followed up on his new theory, which he claims offers America one last hope to avoid destruction by turning back to God, by pointing to the Six-Day War, which he declared is impossible to explain without acknowledging God's direct intervention on behalf of Israel.

Pundits, historians and military analysts don't like to talk about this war, Beck said, "because this battle represents an inconvenient truth for the faithless [as] there is literally no way to describe this war if you take out one thing, and that is the power of God."

Just as God directly intervened on Israel's behalf in this war, Beck explained, so too did He intervene on America's behalf during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 by creating "miracle after miracle after miracle after miracle."

The point of all this, Beck said, is that if we are humble and seek God's protection, then "He will help us with survival."

"We cannot separate ourselves from the plans of heaven," he declared. "When you are humble enough to make sure you are on His side, He will intervene and if you are humble and worthy, He will ensure your survival."

Larry Pratt: 'Control The Amount Of Booze' Bars Sell So That Patrons Can Carry Firearms

Larry Pratt, the executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, often blames mass shootings on a lack of armed “good guys with guns” ready to take down a shooter, saying that the ideal situation is for everyone to pack heat when they go to churchschool, a political event or a bar.

Pratt was questioned about this vision on CNN yesterday during a discussion of the recent mass shooting at a Florida gay club, which Pratt persisted in calling a “gun-free zone” despite the fact that shooter was met by an armed guard. After Pratt criticized Florida for preventing patrons of establishments that serve alcohol from carrying concealed firearms, Costello responded that “when people drink the state of Florida probably doesn't think it's a very good idea to arm patrons."

The solution to this, Pratt responded, was not to regulate guns at bars but for bars to “control the amount of booze” they sell so that patrons can remain armed.

Crooks and Liars caught the exchange:

Self-Proclaimed LGBT Hero Donald Trump To Announce Advisory Board Of Anti-LGBT Activists

Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed hero of the LGBT community, is slated to unveil a religious advisory board filled with outspoken opponents of LGBT rights this week, coinciding with his meeting tomorrow with hundreds of Religious Right leaders.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the group is likely to include longtime supporters such as televangelist Paula White, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress.

Others expected to join the board include Ralph Reed, who recently introduced Trump at an event hosted by his Faith and Freedom Coalition, Ronnie Floyd and Jack Graham, the current and past presidents of the Southern Baptist Convention, respectively, and Jay Strack of the Orlando-based Student Leadership University.

The choice of these activists as campaign advisers would further undermine Trump’s attempts — bolstered by some in the media — to portray himself as either supportive of gay rights or at least distanced from the GOP’s anti-LGBT politics.

Jeffress, as we’ve noted, “believes that gays and lesbians are ‘perverse’ people who are either pedophiles or likely to abuse children in the future; compared homosexuality to bestiality and called it ‘a miserable lifestyle’; accused gay people of using ‘brainwashing techniques’ to have homosexuality ‘crammed down our throats’; said that gay people ‘are engaged in the most detestable, unclean, abominable acts you can imagine’; predicted that the gay rights movement ‘will pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist’; and labeled homosexuality a ‘filthy practice’ that will lead to the ‘implosion of our country.’”

Floyd, the SBC president, once said that Satan is using the “gay lifestyle” to destroy cultural values and labeled the adoption of children by same-sex couples a “tragedy”:

It appears now that everywhere you look, everything you read and everything you hear is about the gay lifestyle. Satan has taken his tool of homosexuality, a gross and evil sin, and done a con job on the American culture, making it seem like all is okay when you are gay. I hope you are aware that what was once subtle has now turned into the rage of a lion as brazen and threatening as anything in our culture. I must sound the trumpet loud and clear, praying that we do not run in retreat, but march in the truth of God valiantly. This is not a skirmish or a conflict or a disagreement, but it is a war. The war they have declared against our culture has an agenda and we need to be aware of it.



The attack everywhere in our culture is to get you to see the gay lifestyle or gay couples as being the same as you. The agenda is also trying to desensitize you to them, their verbiage and lifestyle. In other words, "if you get use to us you will eventually ignore us or accept us." The bombardment and intentionality is already so great that the desensitization is already occurring. Of course, inclusiveness is their theme song. Their goal is to get themselves included into all of society and its benefits, including benefits economically. As they play the song of "inclusiveness," gay couples are now adopting children. What a tragedy. As each of us desire, the homosexual and lesbian want affirmation and will do whatever it takes to receive it. The love and acceptance they have found in the homosexual community is what lured them there and will keep them there until God intervenes.

Graham, one of Floyd’s predecessors in leading the SBC, has a similar view, telling his congregation recently that “the LBGT [sic] promotes a godless agenda, and now on the backs of many confused and conflicted people, are opening the door, literally, to perversion of all kinds.” Last year, he encouraged civil disobedience to protest the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality ruling.

Reed has used his Faith and Freedom Coalition to regularly attack LGBT rights and Falwell’s Liberty University is well-known for its rules against homosexuality and support for anti-gay activism.

Other Trump-backing pastors include Frank Amedia, Trump’s “liaison for Christian policy,” who has described HIV/AIDS as “a disease that comes because of unnatural sex” and said he would be willing to burn to death to resist LGBT rights, and Carl Gallups, a pastor who spoke before Trump at a Florida rally and whose endorsement was touted by Trump’s campaign, who believes, as we recently summarized, that “same-sex marriage will completely destroy society by bringing about economic turmoilsevere persecutionthe ‘enslavement’ of Christians and divine punishment.”

By Refusing To Vote For Trump, Glenn Beck Is Standing Against 'The Entire World,' Just Like Gandhi And Nelson Mandela

Glenn Beck literally spent the first two hours of his radio program today laying out some ridiculous two-chalkboard theory that he crafted over the weekend which he thinks explains all of human history and now offers America one last option for escaping inevitable destruction.

The theory was so convoluted and nonsensical that we're not even going to bother trying to explain it, but part of it involved leaders like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II and Church of Latter Day Saints president Ezra Taft Benson, whom Beck credited with destroying communism.

Somehow, the discussion of these leaders prompted Beck to reference a piece in Townhall today purporting to offer him a way out of his pledge never to support Donald Trump .

"Sitting at home on your moral high horse and refusing to vote is the comfortable thing to do," the column stated of Beck's refusal to vote for Trump and Beck took great offense to that ... and did so by comparing himself to Reagan and Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

"You have got to be kidding me," Beck said. "You are clueless ... You want the hard road? You stand up when the entire world is against you. That's the hard road! That's the road that Reagan and Thatcher and John Paul took. They took the hard road. That's the road that Nelson Mandela and Gandhi and Martin Luther King took, when the entire world was against them!"

Walid Shoebat: The Zika Virus Is 'God's Punishment For Sin'

Writing on his website over the weekend, Walid Shoebat, the supposed ex-terrorist who is now an extremist anti-Muslim and anti-gay activist, declared that the Zika virus is "God’s punishment for sin."

As Shoebat explains it, the world has turned away from God and so God is now "using mosquitos again to punish the world for drugs, promiscuity and faithlessness" in order to "force sinners into repentance":

Just yesterday, the CDC finally admitted we have a very serious problem. It estimates that 25 percent of the population of Puerto Rico will be infected with Zika virus which causes shrinked heads in new-born babies as you see in the photo above.

25% is a huge number.

Is this God’s punishment for sin?

I believe so.

Want biblical evidence do I have for this?

God says throughout the Bible that He can only put up with so much. When God gets angry at times He sends His private armies. In Joel 1-2 it was locusts and in Isaiah 18:1-6 it was mosquitos. Read the verses.

In recent history in the nineteenth century the West finally dealt with the plague of Islam by building massive weapons. God on the other hand pitched in and used locusts to end the Muslim Ottoman plague.

He also used mosquitos to change history when the Americas gained their independence.

Now it seems that He is using mosquitos again to punish the world for drugs, promiscuity and faithlessness.

Most modern Christians have lost touch with the way God operates. They do not understand God and think that He thinks like them. God in the Bible “punishes the fathers upon the children”:

The LORD [is] longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing [the guilty], visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation]. (Numbers 14:18)

It is time people think in reverse and perhaps then they can understand God.

In God’s view such curses to mankind are meant to force sinners into repentance for leaving Him no choice. Most people are oblivious to how God manages sinners. Most modern Christians describe God as an accepting-loving teddy-bear.

He is not.

...

The sexual revolution which took place in the 1960’s and 70’s opened the door to what is known in modern times as causal sex. But when the fear of God doesn’t stop the trend of having sex without attachment and purely for physical satisfaction or indulgence, then God acts.

So God sends the female Aedes aegypti mosquito. The blood-sucking females are responsible for the spread of dangerous diseases such as yellow and dengue fevers, chikungunya and now Zika.

PFAW Releases New Report: The 2016 Election and the Economic War on Women

Today, People For the American Way (PFAW) released a new report, “The 2016 Election and the Economic War on Women,” detailing Republicans’ opposition to measures essential to women’s economic livelihood including paid family and sick leave, equal pay, affordable childcare, and protections from workplace discrimination.

The report discusses Donald Trump’s troubling rhetoric and Republican leaders’ harmful records on many of these policies. It also examines why these policies are critical for women, details the support these issues enjoy from the American public and businesses alike, and exposes and counters the right-wing groups that push back against these policies.

“Our political leaders – whether they describe themselves as ‘pro-choice’ or ‘pro-life,’ Republican or Democratic – should support the policies that are critical to women’s economic success, like affordable childcare and paid family and sick leave,” said PFAW Senior Researcher for Special Projects Miranda Blue. “Yet with the backing of right-wing groups, the Republican leadership in Congress continues to put up roadblocks against progress on these and other key economic policies for American women. And Donald Trump’s offensive and obtuse comments on these issues show how much a Trump presidency could hold back working women in our country.”

You can read the report here. To schedule an interview with a PFAW expert on these issues, please email media@pfaw.org.

People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.

Andrew McCarthy: Orlando Transcripts Redacted Because 'The Government Is Becoming Sharia-Adherent'

Andrew McCarthy, a one-time national security adviser to Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, said today that the Justice Department’s decision to redact parts of a transcript of the Orlando terrorist’s 911 calls in which he states his allegiance to “a person and groups” shows that “the government is becoming Sharia-adherent.”

Attorney General Loretta Lynch has said that portions of the calls were redacted because the administration does not want to “further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.”

But McCarthy didn’t buy this explanation, telling Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon today that it’s all part of a plot to suppress the truth on Islamic terrorism, just like the plot to suppress the truth about “what they call ‘climate change’”:

No, it’s clearly that the government is becoming Sharia-adherent. And the left is using the same tactic with respect to law enforcement against radical Islamic extremism as it uses in the area of what they call ‘climate change.’ That is, they have an official version of events which may be part of a counter-universe, but it’s their story and they’re sticking to it, and what they’re trying to do is purge any alternative explanation.

So the administration has the position that violent extremism, which is what they call it, is disconnected from any credible interpretation of Islam, that Islam is singularly a religion of peace and there is to be no other interpretation of it and therefore anything that shows the direct nexus between Islamic doctrine and jihadist terror is to be suppressed.

Bryan Fischer: 'Homosexuals Were At The Core Of Forming The Nazi Party'

On his radio program on Friday, Bryan Fischer took some time out to pat himself on the back for being one of the only people brave enough to admit "the truth" that Adolf Hitler was gay and that "homosexuals helped to form and shape and mold the Nazi party."

The inspiration for this celebration was Jonah Goldberg's appearance on Fox News last week where he asserted that he knows "for a fact that a lot of the founders of the Nazi Party were gays," which Fischer noted is what he has been saying for at least seven years.

Fischer declared that nobody else within the conservative movement has been willing to admit this historical fact because they saw what happened to him when first did so several years back.

"I said that back in 2009, got absolutely hammered, got absolutely blistered," Fischer said, "and I think what happened is people like Jonah Goldberg saw what happened to somebody who was willing to step out and tell the truth about the origins of the Nazi party, that it was rooted in the homosexual movement, homosexual community; it was formed in a gay bar in Munich, most of the officers of the SA, the Stormtroopers, were homosexuals, you had no chance of advancing in the Stormtroopers unless you were a practicing homosexual."

After claiming that the infamous "Night of the Long Knives" was really directed at eliminating Nazi insiders who were about to "out" Hitler to the German public, Fischer declared that he originally made this case back in 2009 and 2010 because the U.S. government was discussing the possible repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

"That was the discussion at the time," Fischer said, "what about homosexuality in the military? And my point was very simple: That's been tried. Nazi Germany tried that. How did that experiment work out?"

Fischer's claims about the Nazis are, of course, entirely untrue.

Paranoia-Rama: Far-Right Reactions To Orlando Edition

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

It took almost no time at all for conservative pundits and politicians to claim that President Obama either wanted the terrorist attack in Orlando to take place or will use the tragedy to advance his nefarious agenda.

5) False Flag!

As expected, InfoWars broadcaster Alex Jones swiftly declared that the Orlando massacre was a government-instigated false flag attack.

According to Jones, President Obama and other leaders are trying to encourage Muslims to settle in America in hopes that they will soon turn to violence, which will in turn justify government attempts to censor speech and seize firearms: “Our governments are bringing these people in and they’re allowing them to operate openly in our society so they can attack us and then have our freedoms taken.”

The fact that the shooter was born in New York didn’t stop Jones from blaming “the Islamic invasion” of America through immigration.

Later, Jones accused the LGBT rights movement of allying with Islamic extremists because both groups “want access to our kids” to sexually abuse them.

“I charge the left and I charge Obama and I charge the LGBT community in general with endangering America and with the blood of these 50-plus innocent men and women,” he said.

4) ‘Confiscate Muslims’

“Trunews” host Rick Wiles wants the government to go one step further than just banning Muslim immigration, telling his listeners that every single Muslim living in the U.S. must be rounded up and deported before Islam, which he said should be criminalized, “destroys civilization”:

The left is calling for gun control. What we need is Muslim control. We don’t need to confiscate guns, we need to confiscate Muslims. You’re not going to solve this problem until you round up the Muslims and ship them out of this country. End of discussion. Outlaw Islam. Make it an illegal religion. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. Pass a constitutional amendment that says we’re a Christian nation and Islam is illegal. Done. Get rid of it. Stamp it out before it destroys civilization.

3) Tom DeLay Has Some Thoughts

Former House GOP Leader Tom DeLay weighed in on the massacre in Orlando by telling Wiles that the president is a Marxist/Islamist anti-American mastermind who has “empowered” terrorist groups and “put American lives in danger.”

“He’s certainly a Muslim sympathizer and he’s scared to death that the United States and the people of the United States will go after and discriminate against Muslims and that’s why he can’t say the words, ‘radical Islamists,’” he said. “It’s his worldview. This is who he is. He was raised in a communist upbringing. He hates America.”

2) ‘Obama Intends To Take Control Of The Internet’

Apparently unaware of how net neutrality works, Rush Limbaugh said today that the president, when he commented that “deranged individuals” like the Orlando shooter are often “warped by the hateful propaganda that they had seen over the internet,” actually revealed that he “intends to take control of the internet, using this as justification,” linking it back to Obama’s support for net neutrality rules.

“Obama's takeover of the internet will not be to prevent these kinds of things from happening,” he said. “He's got an entirely different agenda. All the Democrats do. It's total control. It's limiting access to information. It's about shutting down opposition. That's why they want control of the internet.” Watch via Media Matters:

If Limbaugh is really worried about an American leader using terrorism as an excuse to “take control of the internet,” then he should look no further than Donald Trump.

1) Donald Trump Is Just Sayin’

During his egotistical and nauseating reaction to the Orlando massacre, Donald Trump made a not-so-thinly-veiled suggestion that the president may in fact be on the side of the terrorists.

As Trump often does, he framed the claim by saying that he was simply saying what “a lot of people” think, and that anyone who tries to hold him answerable for his remarks must be dishonest and biased.

After vigorously denying that he ever implied that Obama supported ISIS, he tweeted an article from the pro-Trump outlet Breitbart alleging that the administration is backing ISIS.

Trump’s insinuation that Obama is a champion of ISIS shouldn’t be that surprising, since he has repeatedly accused Obama of arming ISIS and claimed that the president “doesn’t want to get rid of the problem” of terrorism.

But that’s just what happens when the GOP decides to put up a notorious conspiracy theorist for the most powerful office in the world.

Trump's 'Christian Policy Liaison' Ready To Be Thrown In A Furnace In Protest Of LGBT Equality

While Donald Trump has been laughably trying to claim that he is the real champion of LGBT rights in the presidential race, just this week the man who he has recruited to help him build bridges with the Religious Right said that Christians must be willing to face death fighting Obama administration guidelines on transgender rights in schools.

Televangelist Frank Amedia, a volunteer “Christian policy liaison” for Trump who arranged a recent meeting for the candidate with conservative Christian leaders, addressed the transgender guidelines on the most recent episode of his Daystar program “Deep Calls to Deep.”

Amedia has said that Trump was “raised up” by God as part of a “breaker anointing” that is breaking down “established norms” in preparation for the return of Christ. He returned to this theme on the program, saying that this “breaker anointing” is “happening everywhere,” including politics, science and the schools.

This led him to the president’s “decree” on transgender students, which he likened to a story in the book of Daniel in which King Nebuchadnezzar demands that all local officials worship a huge gold statue of himself or be thrown into a furnace. Three Jews named Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refuse to do so and are thrown into the furnace, but are unharmed thanks to the protection of God.

“I liken it to the same decree that happened to Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in their day, and it said, ‘You will bow down to this false god and if you don’t, I will destroy you,’” Amedia said. “Well, what this decree said to our schools is, ‘You will bow down to the fact that we don’t care anymore about gender and if you don’t, we’re going to take your money from you.’ It’s no different, beloved. It was done with the stroke of a pen.”

“We will not tolerate this,” he added. “We will not stand for it. You may be persecuted, you may be punished, and some of you who are educators, wherever you are, you may have to pay a price. Well, what about the price that you’re going to pay if you don’t stand up to it. So we need to say ‘No more.’ We need to be a people of God that’s strong. We need the people that have the Daniel spirit inside of us and we say, ‘We’re not going to tolerate it, we’re not going to stand for it, and we don’t care what you wrote, we don’t care if you put us in a furnace, we’re going in, because our God shall take care of us.”

Glenn Beck's Network Has Now Been Infiltrated By Members Of A Muslim Brotherhood Front Group

Last year, Glenn Beck launched a campaign to get right-wing anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist removed from his position on the board of the National Rifle Association on the grounds that Norquist is "a very bad man" who has been serving as a spy for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Beck was so alarmed by the danger that Norquist poses to the NRA that he threatened to cancel his lifetime membership in the organization if Norquist was not removed from the board. The NRA, in response, promised to launch an investigation into the allegations against Norquist that would be fully transparent and the results of which would be published on its website.

Those results never were made public, but the investigation reportedly found that the case against Norquist was without merit and the organization declined to remove him from the board.

That prompted Beck to throw his support behind an effort to remove Norquist via a recall vote, but that too failed and Beck predictably backtracked from his threat to quit the organization if Norquist wasn't removed.

Now, instead of distancing himself from the NRA, it looks like the NRA is infiltrating Beck's own network as yesterday it was announced that The Blaze's Dana Loesch had been named as a special adviser on women's policy for the NRA:

Dana Loesch, the conservative leader and nationally syndicated radio host, will serve as a Special Advisor on Women's Policy for National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre. The move is effective immediately, LaPierre announced today.

"Dana is a talented and influential leader and communicator," LaPierre said. "In her role as an NRA Commentator, as well as leading the fight for freedom for more than a decade, she has become a leading voice for Second Amendment freedom and a tremendous advocate for the rights of American women. Expanding her role as an advisor on women's issues, and particularly as a national spokesperson for the 5 million men and women of the NRA, strengthens our organization and our voice."

Loesch said she was eager to accept the challenges of her new role. "I applaud Wayne LaPierre for his vision to bring greater advocacy to bear for the Second Amendment freedom of all Americans, especially women," Loesch said, "and I look forward to facing the national news media and defending our freedom with great enthusiasm."

A year ago, Beck declared that Norquist was such "a very bad influence and a very bad man that if this is who the NRA decides to put on their board of directors, I don't think I can be associated with them" because it was proof that the organization has been infiltrated by Islamic radicals.

To use Beck's logic, this means that the dangerously compromised NRA has now managed to reach its tentacles directly into his own network by ensnaring Loesch, one of its most high-profile and popular hosts.
