Why Is Allen West Angry At 'Liberal Progressive Socialists And Radical Gay Lefties' This Time?

Former congressman Allen West is peeved that a veteran who was kicked out of the military because she is gay had her discharge status upgraded to “honorable discharge,” making her eligible for veterans benefits.

While the military has a review board which handles requests to change discharge statuses, West seems to think the move to change the gay former service member’s status is without precedent and even suggests that opening health care benefits to gay veterans will harm other veterans.

He blames the decision on “an executive order repealing the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ regulation,” despite the fact that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was repealed by Congress.

I’m quite sure liberal progressive socialists and radical gay Lefties are going to be angry with this post — oh well, get over it.

The Obama administration’s social equality transformation of the U.S. military continues and now sets a serious precedent for negative ramifications. Will every gay Soldier now lobby to have his/her discharges upgraded in order to claim benefits? Our nation can barely care adequately for veterans as it is.



What is crazy is that this former Soldier volunteered to be in the U.S. Army fully aware of rules and regulations, and violated one that resulted in her discharge under “other than honorable” conditions. Now, years later because of an executive order repealing the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” regulation, she is afforded an upgrade in her discharge?

Ms. Weiszmiller violated a regulation in existence at that time. The repeal today has no bearing upon her willing violation of that regulation. No one forced her into joining the U.S. Army, she did so voluntarily.



My concern is the precedent this will create. Now any former military members who have been discharged “other than honorable” will come back and appeal for upgrade of discharge years after — and claim back pay or benefits.

Here we are struggling to care for veterans who served honorably — but then again, in Obamaworld, everyone deserves a trophy for showing up (or not). After all according to Susan Rice, even a deserter served with honor and distinction.

UN Official Debunks Claim That Obama Immigration Policy Created Border Crisis

Thanks to the work of anti-immigration activists, it has quickly become a matter of faith in the conservative media that the huge influx of children and families from Central America coming to the southern border is a direct response to President Obama’s 2012 executive order that halted deportations of some undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children — or even the intentional result of a conspiracy to recruit Democratic voters.

But a National Journal interview with a UN refugee official this week paints a much more complex picture. Leslie Velez, senior protection officer of the UN Commission for Refugees, tells National Journal that the UN started noticing an increase in people fleeing violence in Central America as early as 2005, that it started accelerating in 2008, and that the number of Central American asylum seekers has “been doubling every year since 2011.”

Velez notes that Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua and Belize have been seeing similar influxes of immigrants fleeing violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and that only a tiny number of the children her staff talked to in their research mentioned the United States’ immigration policies as a reason for arriving here.immig

She adds that this is “not a migration story” but “a humanitarian crisis and a foreign policy issue.”

When did it become apparent that something out of the ordinary was happening with migration out of Central America?

Our sister agency, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime, started the clock at the increase in violence and insecurity in the Northern Triangle in 2006.

Around 2008, it was probably the first time it really hit the U.N. refugee agency's radar. When we went back to the numbers, there was an increase in asylum applications starting as early as 2005. It wasn't too significant until we got to 2008. And in 2008 to 2013 we noted a 712 percent increase that were lodged in countries other than the United States [like Mexico, Panama, Belize, and Costa Rica].

So why are we hearing about this now?

The numbers have been doubling every year since 2011. And for us, that's dramatic. For the U.S. government—who has been really challenged in order to process this large number—I think their capacity has really been tested in the last few weeks. I think that's what generated a lot of attention. Because the numbers have rapidly increased.

And your next followup question is probably going to be, "Why?"

Yes it is. Why?

From reports that we are hearing from individuals on the ground, both from our U.N. offices that are there, as well as NGOs—in particular Catholic Relief Services in El Salvador—they have been really clear that on the ground a few important things are happening.

One is that the criminal armed actors, specifically gangs, are really operating with significant impunity and targeting children at a younger and younger age. Recently there was a very public massacre and dismemberment of children as young as seven who had refused to join the gang. So it was a message to show who is in power, who is in control.



I've been reading that these children are coming north on rumors that the United States will let them in, that the Obama administration has lax policies toward minors. Did you find that at all in your survey?

We interviewed 404 children asking extremely open-ended questions as to the reasons and the nature of having left and what they were expecting when they arrived. Out of the 404, only 9 of them mentioned any kind of possibility of the U.S. treating children well. Two said "immigration reform"; one said "I hear they treat kids well." It's very general and from the perspective of a child. But only nine out of 404 said anything about that.

So what is attracting them to the United States?

First, I have to point out to you, it's not just the United States. That was a another red flag for us. There is an increasing trend to seek asylum in Mexico, which is much safer for them than where they are from. The number of asylum seekers in Nicaragua, in Belize, in Costa Rica, in Panama—all of that has grown 712 percent since 2008.

This is not the normal flow. For the U.N. refugee agency to register an uptick in asylum applications in places other than the United States is a huge red flag for us. People are leaving to places where they can find safety.

So what are the countries experiencing the influx?

The U.S, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, Belize.



Is the U.S. handling this well?

The U.S. is doing everything that I think it possibly can in this short-term context. We have really applauded that President Obama has recognized there is a humanitarian crisis, and that he engaged FEMA and has asked the Secretary of Homeland Security to respond. The machinery is in place, it's starting to move. The domestic response, in the short term, is doing the best that it can to get people out of the bottle necking facilities that are just not equipped to deal with this type of flow.

But what the U.S. could be doing better, is that this is really a regional issue. Each country is unique and if you look at the data in our report about what's happening in each country, you are going to see some clear difference. At the same time it's a regional challenge—people are leaving and they are going to points North, points South—it requires a regional response. It's not on the U.S. alone to solve. But were supporting it to recognize that there is a foreign policy element here to all of the challenges.

The humanitarian response is not going to solve the problem. The faucet has to be turned off or the water is going to keep flowing. To that end, the U.S. needs to address the root causes, and it has a role in addressing the root causes. First, on the top of the list, is to continue violence-prevention efforts—like job creation, education, strengthen women's counsels—do a lot more institution strengthening, more government programs.

What is the American media getting wrong about this story? Or, what's the take-home point we miss?

This is not a migration story. This is a humanitarian crisis, and an example of consequences of weak governments. It's a humanitarian crisis and a foreign policy issue. We're responding in a humanitarian way, and supporting the government to do so, but that's not going to shut off the faucet.

The normal migration patterns in this region have changed. While it is still a mixed migration flow—people are still coming for a number of reasons. There is a growing number of people who are literally fleeing for their lives.

Tony Perkins Outraged That Military Color Guard Marched In LGBT Pride Parade

Four years after he lost his unhinged campaign to block the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins is now expressing dismay that the U.S. military color guard marched in the Washington, D.C., LGBT Pride Parade “alongside half-naked people and drag queens.”

Perkins claimed in his radio bulletin today that the color guard’s decision to march discriminates against Christians because uniformed soldiers didn’t participate in the March for Life.

The problem in D.C.'s gay pride parade wasn't that active duty troops were saluting the flag. The problem was which flag they were saluting. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. March madness isn't just for basketball! After last week's gay pride parade, it applies to the Obama administration too. For the first time ever, the President authorized an eight-member military honor guard to march alongside half-naked people and drag queens. The move, which Capital Pride Parade called "significant," caps off years of being denied by the prestigious soldiers. Making matter worse, this color guard was provided by the U.S. Military District of Washington, which is reserved for the President, Congress, and other state functions. And while the Pentagon may be willing to bend the rules for this cause, you can bet Christian soldiers wouldn't enjoy the same "exemption" if they wore their uniforms to the March for Life. Unfortunately for today's troops -- "equality" is a one-way street, and that street is full of activists.

Dutch Sheets: God Needs An Army To Save America From 'Demonic' Destruction

Today’s “Prophetic Insight” comes via Dutch Sheets, a leader in the dominionist New Apostolic Reformation. It combines the kind of religious persecution rhetoric examined in PFAW’s recent report, “Persecution Complex,”with a triumphant assertion that God will destroy the people standing in the way of establishing God’s kingdom in America.

Back in 2012, Sheets gave the keynote at a conference organized by fellow prophet Cindy Jacobs with an assist from the Family Research Council.  Sheets mocked churchgoers who focused on things like pastoral care, saying he was looking for “warriors” who would assume their responsibility to legislate, govern, and manage the earth in partnership with God.

Sheets’ new prophetic word is that “God is not done with America,” in spite of a “demonic tide of destruction” that has been “unleashed upon our nation.” Sheets bemoans, “Politically, economically and humanistically, there is an agenda to make this nation never again look the way it has looked before.” He returns to his theme that Americans are not doing enough to build the kingdom of God on earth:

After making great advances in kingdom building, many have let discouragement and fear gain a foothold in their hearts. They've laid down their tools and folded their hands. Others are busy with good kingdom works, but don't dare challenge the status quo, much less, the systems aimed at shredding the moral fabric of our nation, destroying the institution of the family and stripping us of our religious freedoms.

As in the days of Ezra, "wicked counselors," known today as lobbyists, are diligently and strategically opposing God's people to advance the antichrist agenda in every sector of society. This is a fulfillment of the first few verses of Psalms 2, which describe those who hate God and take counsel together, devising plans to contend against Him and His people. These counselors think they've overthrown God's rule and conquered His people and, in their arrogance, openly decree this.

Sheets wraps himself in the kind of martyrdom rhetoric that is seemingly irresistible to Religious Right leaders:

Fellow warriors, we cannot fear that if we resist the government and the political activists, we might be taken out. Neither can we fear that we might go to jail, lose our government funding or tax-exempt status, or have our business shut down for speaking the truth or refusing to marry same-sex couples. Yes, these things are already happening—some are already paying a high price to stand for righteousness—but we cannot cower and live in a paralyzing fear. We must only move in the fear of the Lord.

But don’t worry, he says. God will laugh at those wicked counselors and then destroy them: “Lastly, God takes His rod and begins to break and shatter kingdoms in order to reestablish His reign in the earth. The good news is clearly laid out here—in the end, we win!”

Sheets tells a Bible story about prophets Haggai and Zechariah who worked with God’s government (Joshua the priest) and civil government (Zerubbabel the governor) to lead a reformation. Sheets clearly wants to play the part of prophet in the modern version of the story.

Zechariah later prophesied to Zerubbabel saying, this mountain in front of you is going to be brought low and become a plain. Not by might or power but by my Spirit, you will tear it down with shouts of grace, grace! This is a picture of what God wants to do in America!

God just needs warriors.

It is OK to grieve, like Jeremiah or Nehemiah, over the condition of our nation, but we must not give in to discouragement and fear. God is calling forth an army of faithful followers who will come up out of their discouragement to boldly push back the darkness.

Many leaders in government, health, education and ministry are having to make a decision right now—am I going to make my stand or am I going to compromise and yield to the enemy's plans? I, for one, say what America's founding fathers said upon signing the Declaration of Independence and, thereby, committing an act of treason against the crown: I pledge my life, my fortune, my sacred honor—everything to stop this insidious plan of hell. Will you join me?

North Carolina GOP Senate Candidate Thom Tillis Marginalizes Minority Communities

In an interview recorded in September 2012, North Carolina Speaker of the House and U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis compared the growing population of African Americans and Latinos to a stagnant “traditional population of North Carolina and the United States.”

In an interview highlighted by Talking Points Memo, which first spotted the 2012 interview, a spokesman for Tillis claimed that “traditional North Carolinians refers to North Carolinians who have been here for a few generations.”

If you listen to the full context of Tillis’ remarks, however, it is clear that he was referring to the “traditional population” as a group distinct from the “Latino population” and the “African American population.”

Right Wing Watch points out that “traditional population” and “traditional Americans” are frequently used by anti-immigrant extremists as euphemisms for “white population.” For instance, in The Social Contract, a journal founded by an influential anti-immigrant leader, the term is used in a 2012 essay by Brenda Walker when she says, “Traditional Americans are assailed by affirmative action and benefits for illegal aliens, which are not available to citizens.”

In speaking of the “traditional population,” Tillis stands alongside people like William Gheen, founder of anti-immigrant group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, who said that immigration reform would create a situation in which “traditional Americans, like those who that have been here for hundreds of years in descendancy, will no longer govern our own nation.”

It is true that North Carolina’s African American, Latino, and Asian American populations are growing faster than its white population. For instance, the Latino population in North Carolina grew by 111.1 percent from 2000 to 2010, increasing from 4.7 percent of the population to 8.4 percent. Yet Tillis has consistently worked to marginalize Latinos, by cutting spending on education, opposing healthcare reform, and supporting a restrictive voter identification law ironically called “VIVA.” That’s why People for the American Way is working in North Carolina this year to make sure Latino voters know the threat posed by Tillis’ extreme agenda.

Last year PFAW’s Spanish-language advertising helped spur turnout among Latinos in Virginia’s gubernatorial elections, and did the same in many 2012 battleground contests. As we look to the 2014 elections, Tillis’ actions and statements marginalizing the Latino community will represent a real challenge to his standing in an increasingly powerful voting bloc.

Judicial Watch: Obama 'Engineered' Border Crisis To Force Vote On Immigration Reform

Yet another anti-immigrant activist is claiming that President Obama orchestrated the crisis at the southern border in order to push a vote on immigration reform.

Sean Dunagan of Judicial Watch tells the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today that Obama “engineered” the influx of families and unaccompanied children in order to “make current immigration law look as cruel and inhumane as they possibly can to possibly build political support for some additional amnesty program”:

Dunagan suggests Obama is opening the floodgates to these young illegal aliens for purely political reasons.

"It seems to be that the administration is trying to make current immigration law look as cruel and inhumane as they possibly can to possibly build political support for some additional amnesty program," he says. "I absolutely believe that it's being engineered and exploited to try force action into bad policy decisions and bad votes on the issue."

Last week, Republican congressmen Steve King and Steve Stockman claimed that the influx of immigrants was part of an Obama administration plot to increase the Democratic vote . Anti-immigrant activist William Gheen has also claimed that the crisis was “orchestrated” by President Obama and George Soros.

On his program last week, Glenn Beck also claimed that the border crisis is part of a plot to pass immigration reform and to ultimately return Arizona to Mexico:

To his credit, Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, one of the anti-immigration reform movement’s most prominent spokespeople, has pushed back on the conspiracy theory.

Glenn Beck Has An Explanation For Any Outcome In Iraq

Glenn Beck spends a large portion of every program laying out grand theories about how current and future events will unfold and then patting himself on the back whenever he thinks things are working out just as he predicted while utterly ignoring all of the times that he was laughably wrong.

To make things easier on himself, Beck is now conveniently covering all of his bases when it comes to the crisis in Iraq by predicting, on the one hand, the President Obama will not provide significant military support to stop ISIS from taking over the country because he genuinely "believes the world would be a safer place if a caliphate would happen over there."

On the other hand, Beck asserted that if Obama does provide military support, it is because his progressive "overlords" have decided that continuous war is good for the economy and so they are "pulling his strings" in order to force the US to get directly involved in the conflict.

Regardless of what happens, Beck can now claim to have predicted it since he has a conspiracy theory that accounts for either possible outcome:

Richard Land And Jerry Boykin Claim Obama Is God's Judgment On America

On yesterday’s “Washington Watch,” Religious Right leaders Jerry Boykin and Richard Land agreed that President Obama is — in Land’s words — “a judgment of God on the United States.”

Land, a former Southern Baptist Convention official, blamed Obama for the current conflict in Iraq, saying that he lost the Iraq fight just as Americans abandoned the South Vietnamese.

Later in the program, Land reassured a listener who asked if impeaching the president “would start a race war.” Land responded that it wouldn’t because African Americans would realize as a result of the impeachment process that Obama “was doing things that were illegal” and so “ it would not break out into any sustained episodes of violence.”

The Prophet Glenn Beck Speaks Again: 'The Great Humbling' Is Coming

Glenn Beck took a victory lap on his television broadcast last night, claiming that despite all the mockery he received, the current crisis in Iraq proves that all of his warnings about a global caliphate are coming true, going so far as to compare himself to the Apostle Paul who, in Acts 27, warned his captors not to try and sail for Rome because a storm was coming. 

The captors, of course, did not listen and when the storm came, they all went running to Paul to ask what to do:

Later in program, Beck was shown holding court during his morning staff meeting where he prophesied that America has become so arrogant that God has no option but to humble and destroy us.

"Because I know the one thing the Lord absolutely destroys every time," Beck lectured, "no matter what, destroys it ever time is arrogance. And because his people are arrogant, he will humble us. A humbling, that's the next phase. The great humbling. We are going to be humbled":

Keep in mind that the warning that God will humble anyone who becomes too arrogant is coming from a man who, earlier in the program, likened himself to the Apostle Paul.

Wanted: Volunteers To Stop 'Immigrant Youth Invasion,' Must Not Be Members Of 'Truly Racist Organizations'

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC hopes to gather an army of civilian volunteers over the 4th of July weekend to “go to the border to shut down the new invasion of illegals who are minors” as part of what he’s calling “Operation American Shield.”

In an “emergency broadcast message” yesterday, Gheen pleaded with his followers to come to El Paso to stand against the “Obama orchestrated illegal immigrant youth invasion” which he claims is part of a strategy originating with George Soros to “pursue their overthrow of the American Republic disguised as ‘immigration reform.’”

Gheen writes that “Operation American Shield will be modeled after the very successful nonviolent passive resistance movements of historic note” and as such stipulates that his supporters be unarmed and have “no affiliations with any truly racist organizations.” He of course excludes his own organization from this caveat, writing, “This does not mean affiliations with all of the good groups like ALIPAC that have been falsely labeled racist or violent by Soros backed smear groups.”

While Gheen sees Operation American Shield as a “nonviolent passive resistance movement,” he compares his movement to the violent militia group Minuteman Project.

Gheen seems to be going at this project alone so far, since he adds a plea for a major national spokesperson to his alert: “We respectfully request that Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Senator Jeff Sessions, Congressman Steve King, Congressman Joe Wilson, Michael Savage, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Matt Drudge, Glenn Beck, Mark Levine, filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Congressman Lou Barletta, Rep. Candice Miller, or someone with their level of remaining media access step up to lead Operation American Shield at the border.”

We are calling for a peaceful citizen protest of the new illegal alien amnesty plan being conducted by the Obama administration called Operation American Shield to take place in El Paso on the weekend of July 4, 2014, and we need as many of you to come participate as possible! We must go to the border to shut down the new invasion of illegals who are minors!

It has been a hard fought battle, but now Obama is violating his oath of office, the Constitution, and numerous existing federal laws simply because high level Republicans are unwilling to impeach and remove him since they serve many of the same global elites that Obama serves!

Our border is now besieged by a great flow of illegal immigrants under the age of 18 who are being persuaded by the Spanish language media in South and Central America to bum rush America illegally and immediately!

Our Border Patrol agents are calling out for help from lawmakers and the public because they are being forced to let in violent criminals and to engage in the kind of human smuggling they are sworn to fight on our behalf. We need to let them know that help is on the way

Obama's administration and much of the American media are orchestrating this invasion by sending the message that America's laws and borders have been overthrown from within by the highest levels of our own government, which is comprised of lawmakers who were elected through massive expenditures combined with lies and deception.

Already, planes have been landing deep inside America filled with these new illegal immigrant kids. Obama and the backers of immigration reform amnesty are betting that soft-hearted Americans would never dare turn away children, and they are using these children to pursue their overthrow of the American Republic disguised as "immigration reform."

The US Border Patrol has essentially been ordered to aid and abet the drug cartels and illegal immigrants at our borders.

This new form of invasion, which relies upon treachery and treason in the top echelons of our own government, represents a deadly threat to our entire system of national security! It is an overthrow of our laws, the Constitution and our elections because those we have elected to Congress have passed legislation saying none of this should ever be allowed to happen!

We are updating our homepage at www.alipac.us with as many stories as possible to inform you of this new level of threat where some estimate that around 250,000 new illegal immigrant kids are going to enter America rapidly in this fashion with the coerced support of the Border Patrol per orders from Obama who is probably acting on orders from his boss George Soros!

We apologize to everyone for our short delay addressing this new crisis in full, but our resources have been strained playing a role in the defeat of Eric Cantor. We are a political action committee and we would have even held back illegal immigration supporter Lindsey Graham if we had been able to raise and spend a few thousand more dollars! If the Border Patrol is going to fly all of these new illegal immigrant kids into the country, I say we send them all to South Carolina where they can be with Lindsey Graham and these Republicans who voted for their own electoral doom by reelecting him in last week's primary battle!

Operation American Shield will need many American citizen volunteers who have clean criminal records and no affiliations with any truly racist organizations. This does not mean affiliations with all of the good groups like ALIPAC that have been falsely labeled racist or violent by Soros backed smear groups. Operation American Shield will be a fully racially inclusive effort as one of our core goals is to unite Americans of all races and walks of life who support America's borders and existing immigration laws and the Constitution!

Operation American Shield will be modeled after the very successful nonviolent passive resistance movements of historic note.

All Operation American Shield participants will need to volunteer for affordable ($25) background checks and agree to serve gun free. While I am a huge supporter of the Second Amendment, it is imperative that we all go as sheep before the wolves. We must go unarmed to the border.

We are going to observe the border and document what is happening as we place ourselves physically in the way of the illegal immigrants. This is our nation and this is our border and we have the right to stand on it, in front of it, and to make a statement to the world that the border is closed to illegals.

When the Minuteman Project went to the US-Mexico Border in 2005, it was proven that citizen volunteers could secure sections of the border from illegal traffic. Furthermore, illegal crossings in all sections of the border slowed and stopped in reaction to the presence of civilian watchdog groups. In Washington, DC, politicians were forced to focus more attention on border security instead of trying to pass immigration reform amnesty which would permanently destroy America's borders.

Everyone in America must quickly realize that the Obama orchestrated illegal immigrant youth invasion that our Border Patrol agents are being ordered to assist with is what these treacherous elites have planned for America's future... Open borders and unending waves of people pouring into America until the current peoples, laws, and values of Americans are permanently submerged beneath destructive waves of impoverished humanity.

We respectfully request that Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Senator Jeff Sessions, Congressman Steve King, Congressman Joe Wilson, Michael Savage, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Matt Drudge, Glenn Beck, Mark Levine [sic], filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, Congressman Lou Barletta, Rep. Candice Miller, or someone with their level of remaining media access step up to lead Operation American Shield at the border.

Emphases are ours.

Impeach Obama For Not Accepting Donald Trump's Generous Offer

Remember when Donald Trump swung the election to Mitt Romney and led to the collapse of the Obama reelection campaign with his “big announcement”?

“What difference does it make who won debate? Donald Trump is going to decide the election in 2 days,” WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah wrote at the time.

Of course, the much-awaited “big announcement” ended up being a YouTube video of Trump offering to cut a $5 million check to charity if Obama released his college applications and transcripts.

Obama’s decision to decline Trump’s benevolent offer, former Indiana GOP lawmaker Don Boys writes today, is just one more reason to impeach him:

Obama’s appointment of left-wing socialists and Communists are myriad, mysterious, and maddening to freedom-loving Americans. It seems there is a concerted effort to destroy this nation. Maybe the Manchurian Candidate wasn’t just a novel (1959) and subsequent movies.



Many intelligent, honest people have serious doubts that Obama is even a U.S. citizen! He says he was born in Hawaii; however, there is evidence that he was born in Kenya. Why not remove all doubt and provide original documents to prove his birthplace? There is evidence that he traveled to Pakistan on a passport that reveals his true place of birth but he refuses to provide the documents.

He refuses to provide the information about his education at Columbia and Harvard. Is he concerned about his poor grades or would the documents reveal he was a student from a foreign nation? I don’t know but Obama could easily settle the issue by surrendering the documents. Moreover, Donald Trump has offered to give $5 million to Obama’s favorite charity if he reveals his school and passport records. What reason could Obama have for not doing so unless it is fear?



Do the members of Congress know how to spell impeachment? Get to it. Or maybe this November’s elections will bring in better spellers.

BarbWire Editor Calls Gay Rights Movement A 'Malignant Cancer' Destroying America

BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen today calls the gay rights movement a “malignant cancer” that is “strangling the life out of our constitutional republic” and is “more dangerous” than even organized crime.

“[W]hile the organized crime mafia never officially had the force of law behind them, that’s not the case with the ‘gay’ mafia,” Allen continues, adding that “the thuggery of the homosexual lobby” and “their violent and abusive behavior are obviously the desperate maneuvers of a morally-bankrupt movement lashing out for want of a solid, intellectual argument.”

The list of sodomy-based marriage supporters with the mettle to acknowledge the existence of the “gay” mafia continues to grow. First, there was media mogul Michael Ovitz … next, HBO Real Time host Bill Maher … then comedian Adam Carolla. And now we can add libertarian John Stossel to that burgeoning number. It really doesn’t take a genius to identify the thuggery of the homosexual lobby, but it does require a display of the type of courage that is so sadly lacking these days.



The “gay” mafia will not permit dissent. Tolerance is a one-way street, and some homosexuals like Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart have admitted as much. It’s tolerance for sexually aberrant behavior, and totalitarianism for those who dare to uphold morality, especially when it’s biblically based. Their violent and abusive behavior are obviously the desperate maneuvers of a morally-bankrupt movement lashing out for want of a solid, intellectual argument.



The homosexual activist tactics involve brazen coercion, intimidation, reprisals, threats, and attacks — that’s exactly why we call them the “gay” mafia. However, while the organized crime mafia never officially had the force of law behind them, that’s not the case with the “gay” mafia. Like a malignant cancer, their tentacles have become ominously entangled throughout all branches and levels of the government, strangling the life out of our constitutional republic. That makes them decidedly more dangerous.

Tillis Borrowed 'Traditional Population' Phrase From Anti-Immigrant Extremists

TPM has dug up a 2012 interview in which North Carolina House Speaker and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis contrasts the growing black and Latino populations with the more stagnant “traditional population of North Carolina and the United States.” (The exchange starts about 2:45 into this video.)

Tills made the remarks while discussing the need for the Republican Party to reach out to and appeal to non-white voters — but the phrase “traditional population” as a euphemism for white Americans was lifted right from the racist, anti-immigrant fringe.

The Social Contract, the journal founded by anti-immigrant movement godfather John Tanton frequently uses the phrasetraditional Americans” to mean non-immigrants, and specifically white non-immigrants. One example, from an essay by Brenda Walker in the Fall 2012 issue: “The idea of diversity has been used like a club, to force obedience to the utopian multicultural state, as traditional Americans are assailed by affirmative action and benefits for illegal aliens, which are not available to citizens.”

The white nationalist website VDARE is also known to use the formulation. The late white supremacist writer Sam Francis, who was a contributor to VDARE, has also used the phrase.

The phrase is also a favorite of William Gheen, the leader of the anti-immigrant hate group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, who warned earlier this year that immigration reform would “lead to a situation where traditional Americans, like those that have been here for hundreds of years in descendancy, will no longer govern our own nation.”

Eagle Forum, the group founded by Phyllis Schlafly, hinted at the same idea when it lamented that “non-whites, non-Christians, and non-marrieds vote Democrat out of group identifications. That is, they see it as being in their group interests to tear down traditional American culture.”

Famously, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly made the same connection when he lamented that changing demographics mean "it’s not traditional America anymore.” Pat Buchanan’s 2009 column, “Traditional Americans Are Losing Their Nation,” got at the same point.

Even if Tillis meant what he said about reaching out to black and Latino voters, his use of the phrase “traditional Americans” as a euphemism for white people shows that he has a long way to go.

WorldNetDaily Pundit Wants 'White Christian Conservative' President Because Of Michelle Obama's Vacations, Benghazi

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie is no fan of First Lady Michelle Obama, and is citing her lack of “social grace and decorum” and “lavish shopping sprees” as reasons that the next president should be “a white Christian conservative.”

Not missing a beat, Massie also cites #Benghazi as a reason not to have a person of color succeed President Obama.

“[Obama] has traded on the color of his skin the way prostitutes trade on sexual favors,” Massie writes today. “Because the Obama sucklings, complicit with a pathetic and biased media, label all criticism of Obama as racist, it is my position that the next president be a white Christian conservative.”

He has traded on the color of his skin the way prostitutes trade on sexual favors. Because the Obama sucklings, complicit with a pathetic and biased media, label all criticism of Obama as racist, it is my position that the next president be a white Christian conservative.

I am prepared to argue same because, if we have a white Christian conservative as president, we can criticize his (or her) policies without concern of being called racists. It would be expected of that person to adhere to the highest standards of integrity, truthfulness, transparency and protocol. A white Christian conservative’s wife would be expected to exhibit social grace and decorum consistent with the office her husband held and not comport herself as a demimonde or slattern in expensive designer clothes.



A family is defined as two or more persons living under one roof who are related by blood or marriage. If we had a white Christian conservative as president, we would not be called racists for condemning a presidency that has 62-plus million families out of 81-plus million American families with no family member employed.

If a white Christian conservative president were in office now, we would know the truth of Fast and Furious and the truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Not only would we know why the president suborned perjury in covering up the details of same, but we would know why he was singularly responsible for not lifting a finger to save Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were murdered in Benghazi.



If the wife of a white Christian conservative knowingly and intentionally falsified travel records, naming her daughters as senior staff members, there would be hell to pay and rightly so. If the wife of a white Christian conservative were on pace to spend nearly a billion dollars of taxpayers’ money on lavish shopping sprees, vacations and special parties for their children at which Hollywood actors performed their movie roles in costume, we would be lauded for demanding Congress reign her in.

And more importantly, if we had a white Christian conservative president who ignored the Constitution and who legislated from the Oval Office, we would not be nearly six years into his term of office and still be waiting for impeachment proceedings against him.

And we darn sure wouldn’t see other Christians and conservatives covering up for him as we witness blacks, Democrats and the media covering for Obama.

Joe Arpaio Wannabe Quits Following Racist Text Message Scandal

A sheriff in Georgia who wanted to bring notorious anti-immigrant Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio’s methods to his jurisdiction has resigned following a scandal over racist text messages.

The Newnan Times-Herald reports:

Embattled Grantville Police Chief Doug Jordan has officially resigned.

On Friday Jordan was suspended upon allegations of several text messages that were allegedly sent by Jordan to Grantville police officers which contained derogatory language – specifically the “N-word,” according to Grantville Mayor Jim Sells.

“When we approached the chief in regards to these allegations, he did not deny them and accepted some culpability,” Sells said. “Following this revelation, he was immediately placed on suspension.”



Grantville City Council was originally slated to discuss the reasons of the suspension and review their options in regards to Jordan during a closed session Monday evening. However, since Jordan resigned on Sunday, the matter will not be taken up since he is no longer an official city employee.

One sign that it may have been inevitable that Jordan was caught in a racial bias scandal?

He wanted to be the Joe Arpaio of Georgia, viewing the discriminatory Maricopa County sheriff as a model.

“I was very interested in how he described his ability to make people mad at him by simply enforcing the state and federal laws he is sworn to uphold,” Jordan said. “I told him, ‘It’s this simple, we the people of the United States, either citizens or politicians, do not have the pleasure to pick and choose which laws we will abide by. As law enforcement officials, we do not get to pick and choose which laws we enforce.’”



“We are in the process of setting up some training for the Grantville officers to travel to Arizona and get hands-on training,” Jordan said. …

“I plan to make a change here in Grantville,” Jordan said, “and being as tough on crime as Sheriff Arpaio is will help make the city of Grantville a safe place to live and raise a family. We are on the right track now.”

“Any chance that I can send a Grantville police officer to Arizona to train with the best would be unheard of without the support from Sheriff Arpaio,” he added.

Spurned Georgia Group Launching Even More Extreme Rival To National Right To Life Committee

A no-compromise anti-choice group that was recently ousted as National Right to Life Committee’s Georgia affiliate is launching a new, even more extreme national group to compete with NRLC.

In April, we wrote about the drama in Georgia, where an upstart group backed by pundit Erick Erickson succeeded in booting Georgia Right to Life from its spot in the NRLC. Their feud was over not ideology, but strategy. NRLC and Erickson backed a 20-week abortion ban in the House that included exemptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest; Georgia Right to Life and other hardline groups said that those exemptions made the bill unacceptable:

While all the major anti-choice groups share the same goal — criminalizing all abortions under nearly all circumstances — they differ in how to go about reaching that goal in a post-Roe v. Wade world. This came to a boil last year, when the House voted on a bill banning all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. At the last minute, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor added rape and incest exemptions to the bill after the legislation’s chief sponsor, Trent Franks, stoked controversy when he said “ the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low .” The addition of rape and incest exceptions then caused the anti-choice movement to split.

National Right to Life supported the revised bill and included the vote on its congressional scorecard . But Georgia Right to Life, then the state affiliate of NRLC, opposed the revised bill because of its rape and incest exceptions and urged House members to “vote against this shameful legislation.” Two Georgia Republicans, including Rep. Paul Broun, who is now running for Senate, crossed party lines to vote against the bill, siding with Georgia Right to Life.

One of the loudest critics of Georgia Right to Life’s insubordination was Georgia-based conservative pundit Erick Erickson, who called the group the “Westboro Baptist Church of the pro-life movement.” A few weeks ago, a new group with Erickson on its board sprung up with the goal of replacing Georgia Right to Life as the official state affiliate of NRLC. And this weekend, they succeeded, as NRLC cut ties with Georgia Right to Life and took on Erickson’s group, Georgia Life Alliance, in its place.

Today, Georgia Right to Life struck back, announcing that it is forming the National Personhood Alliance, a new network of state-level groups that that support the no-compromise strategy. In a press release announcing the move, Georgia Right to Life President Daniel Becker takes a clear swipe at National Right to Life: “Compromise is not possible. This is not like roads or highways or agricultural subsidies; when we compromise - someone dies."

"The focus of NPA will differ from most national pro-life groups," Becker said. "The general consensus of many in the movement is that it's time for a fresh strategy for ending the disregard for innocent human life. We intend to be 'standard-bearers' as opposed to 'king-makers'. This will require the application, politically and legislatively, of a higher standard than is currently embraced by most national pro-life groups today."

Becker said, "There has been an overwhelming call from many within the movement to form a new national pro-life group which will represent us on Capitol Hill."

The new organization will be officially formed at a convention to be held in Atlanta, GA on October 10th and 11th. Representatives of existing pro-life organizations and leaders from across the country are invited. Attendees who affirm the founding charter will begin the process of electing a national board of directors representing each state.

"The pro-life movement is more than 40 years old," Becker said. "From its inception in the late 1960's, the focus has primarily been on ending abortion. Our concern must be expanded to encompass the dignity and value of each human being at any developmental stage through natural death.

"To achieve that goal, we must ensure that our strategies are consistent with our policies and objectives. Compromise is not possible. This is not like roads or highways or agricultural subsidies; when we compromise - someone dies."

Keith Mason, Personhood USA President: "Personhood USA looks forward to working with emerging groups like the National Personhood Alliance who share our commitment to never compromise on the lives of pre-born babies."

The new National Personhood Alliance has the support of Personhood USA and claims to have allied groups in 17 states. It has also racked up endorsements from Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, talk show host Steve Deace, and a number of anti-choice activists.

Family Research Council Warns Anti-Bias Executive Order Threatens 'Religious And Constitutional Liberties'

President Obama has reportedly decided to sign an executive order to bar federal government contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The news did not sit well with Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council.

In a statement on behalf of the FRC today, Sprigg warns that the executive order will undermine “religious and constitutional liberties” and lead to a flood of lawsuits.

This political gesture reflects the president's repeated disregard for the legislative process. Congress has not passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) or similar provisions, despite activists' pressure to do so, because of the detrimental impact on employers' and employees' constitutional freedoms of religion, speech, and association. Historically, these kinds of provisions have not been applied to conduct-based distinctions that are not found in the Constitution.

Today's announced executive order will give activists a license to challenge their employers whenever they feel aggrieved, exposing those employers to threats of costly legal proceedings and the potential of jeopardizing future contracts. Furthermore, by requiring federal contractors to consider characteristics and behaviors related to a person's sexual orientation or gender identity, this policy will make contractors liable for protecting actual or perceived self-disclosed and fluid identities that may not even be known.

The timing of this announcement is clearly designed to curry favor with activist organizations. While the president prepares to address a New York gathering of gay rights supporters, the American people will be left to sort out the costs to religious and constitutional liberties resulting from this executive order.

Mike Huckabee To Join Liberty Counsel For Right-Wing Pastor Rallies

Liberty Counsel is organizing a “powerful, five-screen multimedia extravaganza” for conservative pastors who want to stop America from “spiraling out of control as our foundation of traditional values is threatened and eroded every day” and “to dramatically affect the 2014 elections this coming November.”

The “Who Will Stand?” rallies will feature former Gov. Mike Huckabee, pseudo-historian David Barton and Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver, along with uplifting songs and “thousands of images portraying the beauty and grandeur of all 50 states of our great nation” that apparently will help bring an end to President Obama’s tyranny.

Televangelist James Robison, Star Parker, Ralph Reed and Samuel Rodriguez are also listed as speakers.

While so far the events are only scheduled to take place in Florida churches, Liberty Counsel aims to expand the effort to “Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Virginia.”

WorldNetDaily Upset By Bill Defending Rights Of LGBT People Abroad

WorldNetDaily is startled by the introduction of the International Human Rights Defense Act, a bill put forward by Sen. Ed Markey to help protect LGBT rights — or as WND refers to it, “alternative lifestyle choices” — abroad.

Cheryl Chumley, a WND Books author, tells WND that the legislation is not only unconstitutional, but will “make America look even more impotent on the international stage.”

Barack Obama has integrated promotions of homosexuality and other alternative lifestyle choices into his policy and practice since his election, successfully promoting the “gay” lifestyle in the U.S. military and forbidding the enforcement of the federal law called the Defense of Marriage Act that supported traditional marriage.



Prepared by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, the “International Human Rights Defense Act” would demand that the State Department “make preventing and responding to discrimination and violence against the LGBT community a foreign policy priority and devise a global strategy to achieve those goals.”



For Cheryl Chumley, author of the newly released “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality,” said it’s another example of the government using its authority and power to pursue a special interest for Obama – far beyond where the Constitution allows it to go.

“Markey wants our U.S. State Department to take a politically charged stand on homosexual rights and try and push his liberal views onto other governments. Really? Doesn’t America under President Obama have enough problems with its foreign policy without jumping into the hot-bed that’s called gay rights?” she said.



“On top of that, a bill like this just reeks of special interest agenda, and – just as our nation’s military under Obama is tasked with pursuing a radical environmental agenda, or NASA under Obama tasked with boosting the self-esteem of Muslim nations by emphasizing their space contributions – it makes our country’s top diplomats push forward with a public relations message that’s sure to do one thing: Make America look even more impotent on the international stage.”

President Beck Has A Message For The World: 'We Will Pound You Into Glass'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck reacted to the unfolding crisis in Iraq by declaring that if he was the President of the United States, he'd recall all US soldiers and station them along our borders in order to seal off America before telling the rest of the world that it is on its own.

President Beck would give the state of Israel the green light to do whatever it feels is necessary in order to protect itself, including the use of nuclear weapons, but the US would not be getting involved anywhere in the world because America needs to focus on getting back in line with God.

That doesn't mean that America would be going into a shell, Beck proclaimed, warning the rest of the world that "if you screw with us, we will pound you into glass."

We "will destroy you in a heartbeat," Beck warned any nation that would even contemplate messing with America, pledging to utterly decimate entire cities if necessary and then just walk away while this nation focuses on getting right with God because America is God's top priority.

"He will set things right here first," Beck asserted. "He'll worry about the Middle East later; He'll figure this one out and humble us first" so that America can once again be used as a "tool in His hands":
