Steve Lonegan Gets Job Pushing Gold Standard With Anti-Gay Group That Supported His Campaign

The Star-Ledger reported earlier this week that Steve Lonegan, the unsuccessful Republican candidate for Senate in last year’s New Jersey special election, has a new job: leading the anti-gay, anti-choice American Principles Project’s sideline effort to bring back the gold standard.

Lonegan told The Auditor he is now the director of monetary policy for the American Principles Project, a conservative advocacy group. He plans to work to spread the gospel about what he says as the Federal Reserve’s “failed policy” and the need to bring back the gold standard.

“We will be working hard in states like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina to see to it that the (presidential) primary candidates in both parties are forced to talk about this issue,” Lonegan said. “They can’t hide from it.”

The American Principles Project was started in 2009 by Robert George, the intellectual leader of the anti-gay movement, to pressure Republican politicians to embrace both fiscal and social conservative policies. APP currently employs Maggie Gallagher, who founded the National Organization for Marriage along with George and served as NOM’s first president.

In his new job, it seems that Lonegan will unite the main political interests of APP’s chairman Sean Fieler, a little-known hedge fund manager who has become a major donor to the Religious Right and to social conservative causes in New York and New Jersey.

As we noted in a profile of Fieler earlier this year, the gold standard seems to be a pet project of his, so much so that an idea that is widely dismissed among mainstream economists has become a major policy platform of the American Principles Project. The issue was mentioned nowhere in the group’s original mission statement and doesn’t seem to have appeared on the group’s website until Fieler came on board as chairman in 2010.

Fieler and the American Principles Project have a history with Lonegan. Fieler is the major funder of the American Principles Fund , a super PAC affiliated with APP, which last year spent nearly $100,000 running anti-choice ads against Lonegan’s Democratic opponent Cory Booker. Fieler himself has maxed out personal contributions to Lonegan’s recent campaigns, giving his candidate committee $10,400 over the past two years.

Now, Lonegan will bring his unabashed anti-choice and anti-gay politics (remember when he speculated about whether Booker was gay?) to help unite the American Principles Project’s social and economic policy priorities.

The Star-Ledger notes that until this year, APP employed Booker’s current Republican Senate opponent Jeff Bell.

Fischer: God Will Use ISIS To Punish America For Gay Rights

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer spent an entire segment delivering a convoluted exegesis of the Old Testament in an effort to explain that God will eventually get fed up with America's tolerance of homosexuality and will use radical Islamic groups like ISIS to carry out his wrath.

Just as God used the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites as punishment for their utter debauchery and then used "pagan armies" to punish Israel when it fell into sin, Fischer explained, so too will God use Islamic radicals to inflict his judgment upon America.

Asserting that the people of Sodom and Gomorrah are "just like the Gay Gestapo is today" and that America is celebrating behavior that God calls an abomination while persecuting those who stand for God's values, Fischer warned that "God eventually is going to run out of patience with the United States."

And when that day comes, he said, God "will use pagan armies to discipline his people if they turn from him in rebellion and disobedience and descend into debauchery," pointing to the rise of ISIS to raise the possibility that "God will use the pagan armies of Allah to discipline the United States for our debauchery":

FRC: 'People Need To Be Alarmed' About 'Very Dangerous' Gay Marriage

On yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” the Family Research Council’s Craig James and Travis Weber discussed a federal judge’s decision to strike down Florida’s ban on same-sex marriage, warning that the decision will have dangerous and unforeseen consequences.

After James denounced the judge for “overriding and striking down the will of the people,” Weber lamented that the judge’s “inability to comprehend any moral components or any moral insight into marriage” is “very dangerous” as it could pave the way for Big Government tyranny.

“People need to be alarmed,” Weber continued. “We kind of need to step back from this issue — the issue of marriage. Mention it and people get all uptight and they come at it with their preconceived opinions.”

“If we just kind of step back and take a quick history lesson, we can look throughout history at many governments that viewed moral authority as simply ending with the state and there is nothing above that, there is no insight into law beyond what the state itself said it was. Do we want that? No, all we need to do is look at the horror which that view has wrought upon humanity.”

David Horowitz: Eric Holder Is Leading A Black Lynch Mob

David Horowitz appeared on Newsmax today to debate St. Louis County public defender Thomas Harvey about the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

While Harvey described evidence of discrimination in the criminal justice system, Horowitz ended up shouting about how he is “sick and tired of the black America blaming everybody but itself for its problems.”

“What we have going on in Ferguson is a lynch mob, this is one of the most disgraceful acts imaginable,” he continued. “You have uh, indict, prosecute, indict, convict or else, this is exactly the mentality of the lynch mobs of the past, the difference is that this lynch mob is black and it’s led by the attorney general of the United States.”

Jerry Boykin Edits Obama Quote To Claim He Ignored Murder Of Iraqi Christians

Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin yesterday charged President Obama with ignoring violence against Christians in his recent speech on ISIS.

Just like Religious Right broadcaster Rick Wiles, Boykin edited a quote from Obama’s speech to claim that the president is ignoring the murder of Christians.

Here is what Obama said about ISIS:

They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.

Obama has also denounced the persecution of Christians in the Mideast in past remarks:

As ISIL has marched across Iraq, it has waged a ruthless campaign against innocent Iraqis. And these terrorists have been especially barbaric towards religious minorities, including Christian and Yezidis, a small and ancient religious sect. Countless Iraqis have been displaced.

And again:

We will continue to work with the international community to deal with the growing humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Even as our attention is focused on preventing an act of genocide and helping the men and women and children on the mountain, countless Iraqis have been driven or fled from their homes, including many Christians.

National Prayer Breakfast:

More broadly, I’ve made the case that no society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its peoples, including religious minorities, whether they’re Ahmadiyya Muslims in Pakistan, or Baha’i in Iran, or Coptic Christians in Egypt. And in Syria, it means ensuring a place for all people -- Alawites and Sunni, Shia and Christian.

Orthodox Easter:

This weekend, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to members of the Orthodox Christian community here in America and around the world as they observe Holy Friday and the Feast of the Resurrection. For millions of Orthodox Christians, this is a joyful time. But it’s also a reminder of the sacrifice Christ made so that we might have eternal life. His decision to choose love in the face of hate; hope in the face of despair is an example we should always strive to follow. But it’s especially important to remember this year, as members of the Orthodox community have been confronted with persecution and violence, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. For centuries, the region and the world has been enriched by the contributions of Orthodox communities in countries like Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. As a nation, we reaffirm our commitment to protecting universal human rights including the freedom of religion. And in this season of hope and restoration, we celebrate the transformational power of sacrificial love.

Brian Camenker: Gay Rights Activists Orchestrating High School Students Coming Out As Gay

Today, the American Family Associaton’s OneNewsNow interviews Brian Camenker of the Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, who warns that when a high school student comes out as gay it is all part of a strategy carefully orchestrated by gay rights activists “seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks”:

A Massachusetts family values advocate says it's no accident that so many students announce that they are homosexuals.

Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance says these incidents of students “coming out” are the result of a carefully calculated strategy by homosexual activists. He says, historically, school administrators eagerly work with activists who are seeking to draw susceptible students into their ranks.

“We saw one situation at Brookline High School in Brookline, Massachusetts, where the principal actually participated in an assembly where they encouraged kids to announce that they were coming out,” he tells OneNewsNow.

He says the activists prey on pupils who are the most vulnerable.

Camenker says it's not just in Massachusetts - this is happening all across the nation. He says parents need to know about these recruitment programs and demand that they be kept out of their children’s schools.

Rick Wiles Edits Obama Quote To Claim He Ignored Plight Of Iraqi Christians

On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles accused President Obama of deliberately ignoring ISIS’ campaign of horrific violence against Christians in northern Iraq. Wiles did so by editing Obama’s recent remarks about ISIS to drop his condemnation of the extremist group’s crimes against Christians.

“Barack Hussein The Muslim Obama couldn’t bring himself to denouncing the Islamic State for its savage butchery of Christians,” Wiles said, before falsely claiming that Obama trained ISIS militants to “slaughter Christians.”

Here is what Obama actually said, clearly mentioning the suffering of Christians and the genocide against the Yazidis.

Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion. They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.

Dinesh D'Souza Explains The 'Common Thread Between ISIS And What's Going On In Ferguson'

Dinesh D'Souza was a guest on Steve Malzberg's program on Newsmax yesterday, where he inexplicably linked the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri to the murderous rampage being carried out by ISIS in Iraq.

D’Souza accused President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton of undermining the justice system by "fostering an atmosphere in Ferguson that basically goes 'let's declare that this guy is probably guilty and let's see what we can do to put him up against the wall.' The idea that he would get impartial justice is becoming highly questionable."

Declaring that, historically, it was black people who were denied equal justice under the law, D'Souza said that now we are seeing "a complete flip" so that now white people cannot get justice under President Obama and America is just "going from one set of injustices to another."

That somehow led D'Souza to claim that there is "a common thread between ISIS and what's going on in Ferguson" because, in both situations, people are seeking to correct a perceived injustice by inflicting a whole host of new injustices "and all of this is then licensed by the Left and licensed, to some degree, by the media":

Liberty Counsel: Acceptance Of Gay Christians May Be A Sign Of The End Times

On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast today, Matt Barber and Deryl Edwards discussed the increasing support for gay rights among Christians and the rise in the number of Christians who are coming out as gay, like Christian singer Vicky Beeching.

To Barber and Edwards, this sort of "great falling away from the clear words of Scripture" just might be a sign that the End Times are rapidly approaching.

"This looks to be," Barber said, "at least to me, that it may be the beginning of this great falling away" that was prophesied in the Bible. Edwards agreed, saying that this is exactly what Paul warned would happen as the End Times grow near.

Citing 1 Timothy 4:1, which warns that "in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons," Edwards said that this seems to be what is happening today.

"Are we in the Last Days?" he asked. "It sure seems like it."

Barber then announced that Christians must pray for Beeching in hopes that she will repent because "she's really in danger here of leading millions of Christ's little ones astray and as Scripture says, it's better to have a millstone around your neck [and to be drowned in the depths of the sea] than to do so":

GOP Committeewoman Warns Child Migrants 'Highly Trained As Warriors,' Could 'Rise Up Against Us As Americans'

On her weekly radio show yesterday, RNC committeewoman Tamara Scott of Iowa warned that child migrants from Central America may have been “highly trained as warriors” and could “rise up against” U.S. citizens.

“When we see these kids, you and I think young kids, we think maybe 12-year-olds, maybe homeschoolers — excuse me, middle-schoolers,” said Scott, who is also Concerned Women for American’s Iowa state director and works as a lobbyist for the conservative group The Family Leader. “But we know back in our revolution, we had 12-year-olds fighting in our revolution. And for many of these kids, depending on where they’re coming from, they could be coming from other countries and be highly trained as warriors who will meet up with their group here and actually rise up against us as Americans.”

Mary Huls, leader of a Texas-based Tea Party group, agreed, warning that the children could have been trained in Venezuela to work for Hezbollah or Hamas (never mind that most of the children are from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador). “They are being trained as warriors, you’re absolutely right,” she said.

North Carolina Judge Rules Right-Wing Voucher Program Unconstitutional

People in North Carolina have been living with – and resisting – a devastating right-wing assault on public institutions and the common good since a far-right takeover of state government in 2012, which was funded by Art Pope, a local businessman who became the state’s budget director.

Part of the right-wing assault has been on public schools and teachers. The 2013 state budget included $10 million for “Opportunity Scholarships” that would be sent to mostly unaccountable and mostly religious private schools. But today a state judge ruled that state lawmakers’ school voucher plan violates the North Carolina constitution.

North Carolina Policy Watch has the details:

In a stunning rebuke to state lawmakers’ efforts to bring school vouchers to North Carolina, Wake County Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood today found the recently-enacted “Opportunity Scholarship Program” unconstitutional and permanently enjoined disbursement of state funds for that purpose.

“The General Assembly fails the children of North Carolina when they are sent with public taxpayer money to private schools that have no legal obligation to teach them anything,” Hobgood said.

In his ruling, issued this morning from the bench, the judge broke down the program and detailed the many reasons why it failed constitutional muster:

This legislation unconstitutionally

1) appropriates to private schools grades K-12, by use of funds which apparently have gone to the university system budget but which should be used exclusively for establishing and maintaining the uniform system of free public schools;

2) appropriates education funds in a manner that does not accomplish a public purpose;

3) appropriates educational funds outside the supervision and administration of the state board of education;

4) creates a non-uniform system of education;

5) appropriates taxpayer funds to educational institutions that have no standards, curriculum and requirements for teachers and principals to be certified;

6) fails to guard and maintain the rights of the people who privilege the education by siphoning money from the public schools in favor of private schools; and

7) allows funding of non-public schools that discriminate on account of religion.

NC Policy Watch reports that Judge Hobgood had issued a preliminary injunction against the program in February, but parents backed by the Koch-brothers-funded Institute for Justice appealed that order and the state Supreme Court overturned the injunction in May. But in today’s ruling, “Hobgood recognized the state’s obligation to provide a ‘sound basic education’ to the children attending public schools in North Carolina as mandated by the [state] Supreme Court in its Leandro decision .”

“The General Assembly cannot constitutionally delegate this responsibility to unregulated private schools by use of taxpayer opportunity scholarships to low income parents who have self-assessed their children to be at risk,” he said.

Hobgood noted that the private schools receiving the scholarships are not subject to any requirements or standards regarding the curriculum that they teach, have no requirements for student achievement, are not obligated to demonstrate any growth in student performance and are not even obligated to provide a minimum amount of instructional time.

The Judge also wrote, “It appears to this court that the General Assembly is seeking to push at-risk students from low income families into non-public schools in order to avoid the cost of providing them a sound basic education in public school as mandated by the Leandro decision.”

And he rejected the budgetary sleight-of-hand engaged in by legislators to try to make the program pass constitutional muster:

The judge also made clear that he was not buying lawmakers’ argument that state funds were not funding the program.

This summer, Rep. Paul “Skip” Stam pushed through an amendment to the voucher law that pulled $10 million out of the state’s General Fund to pay for the program. That budgetary maneuver allowed Stam to then readjust the public school budget back to what it would have been had school vouchers never existed.

As amended the voucher law stated that “scholarship grant funds awarded . . . to eligible students attending a non-public school shall not be considered funding from the state of North Carolina.”

Nowhere in the state’s General Statutes is there any provision for scholarship grants to come from any source other than taxpayer funds, Hobgood noted.

“If scholarship grants shall not be considered funding from the state of North Carolina, this court is at a complete loss to understand the source of those funds,” he said.

“Follow the money,” the judge added. “The clear legislative intent is to utilize taxpayer money to fund private schools.”

Fischer On Homosexuality: People 'Don't Want To Visualize It Because It Is Disgusting'

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program today with a discussion about the revulsion that God feels whenever gay people have sex, which is the same disgust that all human beings feel when thinking about it unless, that is, they have been brainwashed by society to accept it.

Homosexuality, Fischer explained, is an "abomination" because "it causes an inner revulsion. In other words, when you see it, you think about it, you recoil from it. Your instinct is to recoil from it in some kind of disgust."

"Homosexual behavior is an abomination to God," he continued. "When God sees it, it causes him to recoil. And when we think about the actual act of homosexuality, we have exactly the same reaction. Most people think about that, they don't want to think about that, they don't want to visualize it because it is disgusting. And if people aren't politically conditioned to accept it, their natural reaction is that's just not normal, that's just not natural, that's not what human beings were designed for, that's not what they were made for":

Joyner: A Global Pandemic Is Coming, So Stock Up On Water Filters That Will Make You Immune To Cancer

On today's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" broadcast, Rick Joyner warned his viewers that the rise of some sort of global pandemic (maybe Ebola or possibly bird flu) in the near future was inevitable and so they should be stockpiling food, water, and supplies so that, when it comes, they will not have to stand in line waiting for assistance and can instead use the crisis as an opportunity to spread the Gospel to those who will need supplies.

In particular, Joyner recommended that people stock up on water filters  - which they can buy through his website, of course - especially ones that can help users reduce the pH level in their bodies, which he says will make them immune to cancer.

"You know what that means?" he asked. "When your pH level get down to a certain level, cancer won't grow. You don't even have to worry about it. Yep, that is true":

That is, of course, not true, as the American Institute for Cancer Research explained back in 2008:

The unsubstantiated theory is based on lab studies that suggest cancer cells thrive in an acidic (low pH) environment, but cannot survive in alkaline (high pH) surroundings. While these findings are accurate, they apply only to cells in an isolated lab setting. Altering the cell environment of the human body to create a less-acidic, less-cancer-friendly environment is virtually impossible.

The most amazing thing about Joyner's statement is that, in addition to being false, it is also exactly backwards since lowering the pH level makes things more acidic. Since the theory purports that cancer thrives in acidic environments, using water filters that lower pH level would theoretically make people more susceptible to cancer rather than, as Joyner claims, making them immune to it.

David Horowitz Knows Obama Is A Muslim Because He Hates America So Much

David Horowitz dropped by the American Family Association’s “Today’s Issues” today, where he spoke with AFA head Tim Wildmon about how President Obama refuses to condemn the mass killings of Christians or take military action against ISIS. Of course, Obama has repeatedly condemned the killing of Christians and has ordered 90 airstrikes against ISIS to date.

But in Horowitz’s world, Obama is cheering on ISIS because he’s a Muslim who hates America.

“Obama is an anti-American radical and I’m actually sure he’s a Muslim, he certainly isn’t a Christian,” Horowitz said. “He’s a pretend Christian in the same way he’s a pretend American. It really is disgraceful. He's inviting the terrorists to behead more Americans when he should be attacking them with our military. His whole agenda in office has been to defeat America, he lost the war in Iraq deliberately, he created a vacuum which ISIS has filled.”

“Saying he’s the worst president we’ve ever had is not saying enough.”

Wildmon said he didn’t used to believe the conspiracy theory that Obama is a secret Muslim, but now he does due to what he sees as the president’s anti-American actions.

“I think he is, I don’t think there’s really any question,” Horowitz said, arguing that Obama is a “liar” who “lies all the time.”

Horowitz also said that Obama is letting immigrants illegally cross the border in order to kill Americans through anthrax and beheadings.

“When he was re-elected, the first thought that came into my mind is, a lot of people are going to be dead because of this election, and how right I was,” he said, warning that the president “destroyed our borders” in order to let “our enemies” enter the U.S.

“They’re going to come across our border with their dirty bombs and their anthrax and whatever else, you know, their swords to behead us….The ones who are going to do the killing are coming across our open border and this president is not defending us.”

Steve Deace Links Michael Brown Shooting To Lax Immigration Enforcement

Rivaling Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, who yesterday managed to link the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, to Hamas, on his talk show on Tuesday Steve Deace linked the shooting of Michael Brown and the ensuing protests to what he sees as lax enforcement of immigration laws.

Deace cited the announcement that 22 Iowa county sheriffs are refusing to hold federal immigration detainees without a court order as evidence that local governments are “creating lawlessness.” This, he implied, could cause rioting if a released undocumented immigrant committed a murder, as people “take the law into their own hands,” causing law enforcement to “militarize up.”

This culture of “lawlessness,” he implies, was responsible if not for the murder of Brown, then at least for the ensuing protests and violence.

Deace, of course, was a supporter of the lawless militia groups at the Bundy ranch, who believe that local sheriffs should be free to ignore federal laws with which they disagree.

Here in my hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, we’ve got 22 Iowa county jails that have announced today — including their sheriffs — that they are just not going to enforce the immigration law, they’re just not going to do it. That if the fed’s come in and say, hey, we want you to hold people we suspect are here illegally, they won’t do it, they refuse, we’re just not going to do it. And the sheriffs have said we’re not going to punish people who are here in the country illegally. So, again, we’re creating lawlessness.

So, let’s create a hypothetical situation here that’s not that far-fetched. Let’s assume that one of these illegals in this county goes on a murderous rampage and it could have been prevented if he had been deported and you’re in a position where people are — again, I’m not advocating this, I’m not justifying it, I’m just telling you, Michael, this is what happens when the rule of law is not upheld, people will sooner or later start taking the law into their own hands.

And when they start taking the law into their own hands, then the government will come along and say, that’s why we’ve got to militarize up because you’ve got this, that means we’ve got to have that, and on and on the escalation goes. And it’s because we’ve exceeded these spheres of authority. Who knows if that would have stopped what happened to Michael Brown. I’ve got to believe it might have stopped six consecutive nights of rioting and looting, however, had we known that.

Pat Robertson Explains Ferguson Incident: Maybe Michael Brown Was On PCP?

Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson weighed in on the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri, insisting that Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed by a police officer, was a menacing “giant” who assaulted a “little cop” and may have been using PCP.

Naturally, Robertson then went on to criticize other commentators for “grandstanding” and jumping too quickly to conclusions.

Ben Carson: Michael Brown Died Because He Lacked A Father Figure, Political Correctness

Ben Carson seems to be convinced that “political correctness” is to blame for Michael Brown’s death, and made the case yesterday on Washington Times Radio that Brown died due to the “hypersensitive” climate of American politics.

He told host Andy Parks that political correctness is distracting people from addressing “real problems” like teen pregnancy and “all of those kids who are born into poverty and will live in poverty and in many cases will end up without a father figure in their life and don’t know how to respond to authority and end up being killed like Michael Brown.”

Carson, who has built a political career by regularly arguing that he is losing his right to free speech because people criticize his political views and that he is facing Nazi-style persecution, said “hypersensitive” people who manufacture claims about how their rights are under attack are ruining America.

Carson later said the “agitators” and “criminals” in Ferguson need to be punished and the real lesson is that people should “teach your children to respect authority.”

Ironically, a few months ago Carson praised the “outstanding people” who flocked to the Bundy ranch in Nevada to assist in the lawless standoff with law enforcement, saying that it is high time for Americans to “stand up against the government” and stave off looming martial law.

Ben Carson And Steve Malzberg Muse On How Ferguson Protestors Are Like Hamas

Conservative activist and potential 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax program yesterday to discuss the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as Islamic extremism in the Middle East. Malzberg, amazingly, was able to tie the two together, accusing the Obama administration of sympathizing with both the “grievances” of groups like Hamas and of the Ferguson protestors, creating “a bizarre world of sorts.”

Doctor, do you see a world now through a media and maybe even through the White House and Justice Department and the State Department where Hamas is kind of equal to Israel, they have their own grievances, you put a suit and tie on the Hamas spokesmen and you believe what they say, and Israel has to be proportional to their response; and now the cops, Rachel Maddow says the cops are rioting and Obama says they’re too militarized, as many people do, and we have got to hear the grievances and there’s a war on black men, we hear from some people. Do you see how these two kind of go together in a bizarre world of sorts?

“It’s very bizarre, and I see a very politically correct administration, and political correctness is in the process of destroying this nation,” Carson responded.

Sen. Ted Cruz To Join Anti-Gay Activists In Honoring His Father

Next month, Rick Scarborough's Vision America will host its annual "Heroes of Faith Gala" where the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins will receive the 2014 "National Hero of Faith Award" and Rafael Cruz, a Religious Right activist and father of Sen. Ted Cruz, will be honored with the "Don Wildmon Award," named for the founder of the American Family Association.

Today, Vision America sent out an email urging activists to register for the event, revealing that the senator is also going to be in attendance, picking up the Don Wildmon Award on behalf of his father and delivering remarks:

As we have noted before, Ted Cruz has great admiration for Scarborough despite Scarborough's long history of rabidly anti-gay bigotry.

In recent years, Scarborough has defended Russia's anti-gay laws, claimed there should be no such thing as Gay Pride Month because "those who engage in unnatural acts should hang their heads in shame," insisted that gay people should always be referred to as "sodomites," and called for a class action lawsuit to be filed against homosexuality.

Just last month, Scarborough said that God would be entirely justified for destroying America with a nuclear bomb because of the nation's tolerance and embrace of gay rights:

Back in 2011, he declared that AIDS is God's judgment upon those who engage in immoral acts:

And on September 4, Sen. Ted Cruz will be joining Scarborough for a gala honoring his father.

Ted Nugent: Liberals To Blame For Michael Brown's Death

In his column for WorldNetDaily this week, Ted Nugent writes liberals should be held responsible for the death of Michael Brown because of their support for reforms to reduce gun violence.

Nugent alleged that Obama is “fanning the embers of racism” and trying “to beat the race drum” over the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, hoping to stoke racial hostility in order to make sure African Americans support Democrats come November.

“The ugly truth is that liberals are complicit in Michael Brown’s death and the deaths of thousands of other young black guys who have been encouraged to become thugs,” Nugent writes.

The president knows all too well that losing a portion of the black vote would spell disaster for the Democrats in upcoming elections. Like his race-baiting buddy Al-Not-So-Sharpton, Mr. Obama believes fanning the embers of racism will keep black Americans squarely in the corner of their big daddy Democratic Party. That’s good for liberal politics and bad for racial harmony and America.



President Obama continues to beat the race drum in a feeble attempt to reduce the nonstop gangland gangbanger warfare in Chi-raq and other urban warzones in Baltimore, Oakland, New Orleans, Detroit, St. Louis, etc., repeating the nonsense that more “reasonable” gun control laws will stop street savages from getting their hands on guns and killing each other.



What President Obama proposes is spending another trillion on poverty-related programs for the next 10 years, thereby ensuring that the nightly bloody slaughters in our urban warzones will continue.

You don’t need to be a social psychologist, anthropologist, criminologist or even a greasy Motown guitar player to understand why America has urban warzones. It is the result of liberals who believe every problem can be solved by massive government spending and a bumbling, lethargic, counter-productive bureaucracy, instead of demanding accountability.

The ugly truth is that liberals are complicit in Michael Brown’s death and the deaths of thousands of other young black guys who have been encouraged to become thugs.

The pesky fact is that America has a discipline-less related violence problem.

That apparently is quite OK with liberals so long as they can continue to try and con the American people, especially black Americans, into believing that access to guns and racism are the problem.
