Sally Kern's Husband Is One Step Closer To Joining Her In The State Legislature

Yesterday, Oklahoma pastor Steve Kern, husband of famously anti-gay state legislator Sally Kern, advanced to a runoff primary in his own bid to take public office. He is hoping to join his wife in the Oklahoma legislature — she’s a state representative and he’s aiming for a spot representing Oklahoma City in the state senate.

Steve Kern seems to be an ideological ally of his wife, who gained national notoriety when she insisted that the “homosexual agenda” is a greater threat to America than terrorism and then writing a book called “The Stoning of Sally Kern” about the criticism she received.

Not only did Steve Kern defend his wife's comments, saying "they were true in the sense that the [gay] agenda was more stealthy than the terrorists' agenda," but he has a history of right-wing activism of his own.

Last year, Steve Kern led a rally of pastors to protest a biblical satire with “homosexual themes” being performed in Oklahoma City and prayed that God’s “mercy would withhold his justice” in punishing the city.

Kern also holds a David-Barton style view of the Constitution as an explicitly Christian document. In an August 2013 lecture, he explained that the founders were only tolerant of other religions in an effort to “try to win them to Jesus.”

He explained that this Christian-Nation ideology is “not asking for anything that isn’t already happening everywhere in the world,” perhaps unwisely comparing it to the system of Islamic law in Saudi Arabia. He added that same-sex marriage is “unconstitutional” because it “goes against the very worldview that we established our constitution on in the first place.”

Later in the presentation, Kern responded to a questioner who wondered if it would be treasonous to overthrow the government, to which Kern replied that it would not.

Sandy Rios Claims Mark Kirk Is A 'Closet Homosexual' Out To Ruin The GOP

On her radio program today, American Family Association government affairs director Sandy Rios fumed about Thad Cochran’s victory over Chris McDaniel in Mississippi’s runoff primary election, which she blamed on John McCain.

According to Rios, McCain embarked on a campaign — “and I know about this for personal reasons” — to “purge the Republican Party of conservative candidates” and “turn the Republican Party blue” following the 2008 election.

“He decided that Mark Kirk was his first pick,” Rios said.“Many of us in Illinois at the time, conservatives, knew that this was going to be a disaster.”

After reviewing several controversies that emerged during Kirk’s U.S. Senate campaign that she said showed he “was not an honest person,” Rios said that “we also knew that he was a closet homosexual.”

Back in 2010, while Kirk was running for the Senate, Rios wrote a column, “Do We Have a Right to Know If Candidates Are Gay?,” in which she demanded more media attention to rumors that Kirk is gay:

It’s not good enough for Congressman Mark Kirk to claim his “outing” “demeans the political process.” He should answer the following questions and Republicans and press must follow through to confirm or deny his answers:

1) Are you gay?

2) Have you been living with another homosexual Congressman?

3) Were you sued by another male staffer in John Porter’s office for sexual harassment?



Congressman Mark Kirk, please answer these questions. Republican leadership, if you are covering up things the public should know, stop or you will lose even more credibility with your base. And press? Do your job. Your duty is not to defend a lifestyle; it is to report the truth.

Matt Barber Puts On A Question-Begging Clinic

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Matt Barber were discussing the topic of "How Does One's Worldview Affect One's View of Government" during which they tried to explain the difference between theistic and atheistic worldviews, with Staver asserting that a belief in God is "the critical question" that must be addressed when discussing the issue of worldview.

Barber agreed, laying out a rather circular explanation as to why the Christian worldview is the correct one, explaining that since Jesus and the Bible are the standards of truth, therefore believing in them means that one's worldview is "closer to the truth":

Everybody has a worldview, as you said, and they can't all be right. And no one person's worldview is a hundred percent right except for one person who walked the earth and that's Jesus Christ himself. He had the perfect worldview. He is the way, the truth, and the life and, going toward what you're talking about here, the worldview that says there is a god versus the worldview that says there isn't a god, clearly the worldview that says there is a god is closer to truth because Christ is god. He is the way, the truth, and the life.

So the worldview, the theistic worldview, is closer to god. We can get closer and closer and closer to the truth, which is the Word of Truth, which is scripture, the Bible. So the closer your worldview aligns with scripture, the closer your worldview is to truth.

Barber does not seem to realize that the existence of God is at the center of the division between the theistic and atheistic worldviews and so simply declaring that the theistic worldview is the correct one because God exists is begging the very question that is at issue.

Tenth Circuit Court Rips Apart Right-Wing's Bogus 'Religious Freedom' Case Against Gay Marriage

Today, the Tenth Circuit Court upheld a lower court’s decision striking down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage. In its decision [PDF], the court dismantled several arguments from the state’s attorneys about the supposedly negative impacts of same-sex marriage on children and opposite-sex couples.

But one argument that jumped out was the state’s claim that a prohibition on same-sex unions is needed to safeguard “religious freedom,” a claim that is gaining popularity among Religious Right activists who are finding less and less success with outright bigotry.

The court pointed out that the increasingly widespread argument doesn’t hold up to scrutiny:

Appellants’ fourth and final justification for Amendment 3, “accommodating religious freedom and reducing the potential for civic strife,” fails for reasons independent of the foregoing. Appellants contend that a prohibition on same-sex marriage “is essential to preserving social harmony in the State” and that allowing same-sex couples to marry “would create the potential for religion-related strife.”

Even assuming that appellants are correct in predicting that some substantial degree of discord will follow state recognition of same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court has repeated held that public opposition cannot provide cover for a violation of fundamental rights.



Appellants acknowledge that a state may not “invoke concerns about religious freedom or religion-related social strife as a basis for denying rights otherwise guaranteed by the Constitution.” But they argue that the social and religious strife argument qualifies as legitimate because a fundamental right is not at issue in this case. Because we have rejected appellants’ contention on this point, their fourth justification necessarily fails.

We also emphasize, as did the district court, that today’s decision relates solely to civil marriage. See Kitchen, 961 F. Supp. 2d at 1214 (“[T]he court notes that its decision does not mandate any change for religious institutions, which may continue to express their own moral viewpoints and define their own traditions about marriage.”). Plaintiffs must be accorded the same legal status presently granted to married couples, but religious institutions remain as free as they always have been to practice their sacraments and traditions as they see fit.

The court also demolished another favorite claim of the Religious Right: that gay couples do not have a right to marry simply because they historically have not had a right to marry:

As the Court later explained, “[m]arriage is mentioned nowhere in the Bill of Rights and interracial marriage was illegal in most States in the 19th century, but the Court was no doubt correct in finding it to be an aspect of liberty protected against state interference by the substantive component of the Due Process Clause in Loving v. Virginia.”



Appellants’ reliance on the modifier “definitional” does not serve a meaningful function in this context. To claim that marriage, by definition, excludes certain couples is simply to insist that those couples may not marry because they have historically been denied the right to do so. One might just as easily have argued that interracial couples are by definition excluded from the institution of marriage. But “neither history nor tradition could save a law prohibiting miscegenation from constitutional attack.” Lawrence, 539 U.S. at 577-78 (quotation omitted); see also Williams v. Illinois, 399 U.S. 235, 239 (1970) (“[N]either the antiquity of a practice nor the fact of steadfast legislative and judicial adherence to it through the centuries insulates it from constitutional attack . . . .”); In re Marriage Cases, 183 P.3d 384, 451 (Cal. 2008) (“[E]ven the most familiar and generally accepted of social practices and traditions often mask an unfairness and inequality that frequently is not recognized or appreciated by those not directly harmed by those practices or traditions.”), superseded by constitutional amendment as stated in Strauss v. Horton, 207 P.3d 48, 59 (Cal. 2009).

Jeff Allen Warns America Is Pushing 'Sodomite Imperialism' With 'Homosexual Warheads'

BarbWire editor Jeff Allen joined Tim Wildmon on American Family Radio yesterday to warn that President Obama and his progressive allies seek to destroy America because they are engaged in “rebellion against God.”

Among the anti-American, anti-Christian demoniacs? Why, none other than us here at Right Wing Watch! Allen accused us — along with the media, public schools and the gay community — of trying to bring down the country and replace it with a socialist-communist dystopia.

And he wasn’t done there. Allen took to BarbWire today to accuse Secretary of State John of pushing “sodomite imperialism” by appointing “tranny” foreign service officers and “weaponizing the foreign affairs agencies with a homosexual warhead.”

With the Obama administration’s foreign policy in a shambles and the world going to hell in a handbasket (and frankly, we’re running out of handbaskets), Secretary of State John Kerry was busy wasting our nation’s valuable time making the ridiculous pledge to continue working hard to appoint more LGBT ambassadors as part of America’s new sodomite imperialism. Never mind the fact that ISIS is overrunning Iraq, the Syrian civil war is spilling over into Israel, and Russian aggression in the Ukraine destabilizes the region — America is too preoccupied with intimidating other nations into embracing homosexual perversion to be concerned about such “insignificant” geo-politcal [sic] issues. Talk about having our national priorities out of whack!

John Kerry delivered his remarks at the GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride Event in the Ben Franklin Room at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, DC on June 19. During the speech, the secretary rattled off a list of “accomplishments” that have benefited the homosexual community’s aberrant agenda.

Kerry also indicated that, if confirmed, Ted Osius (nominated by President Obama to serve in Vietnam) would become the sixth openly gay U.S. ambassador currently in service. Then, he praised the work of the GLIFAA President and moderator of the event Robyn McCutcheon, who was at one time posted in Bucharest, Hungary as the first cross-dressing, tranny “female” Foreign Service officer. In other words, we’ve got people who can’t even figure out their own gender trying to navigate their way through the intricacies and intrigues of the world’s most confusing diplomatic quandaries.



For those nations that dare to balk at these thuggish U.S. demands and refuse to recognize pretend homosexual “marriages” (and won’t grant visas to their homosexual “spouses”), the Obama administration is prepared to abusively misuse its power. Kerry threatened to use coercive tactics against those nations that find homosexual practice repugnant. Apparently, we no longer respect the culture, beliefs and traditions of other nations. Just as the vindictive homosexual activists have brazenly run roughshod over the rights of conservative and Christian citizens here at home, Kerry promised more of the same around the world. Like the IRS, we are seeing the weaponizing of the foreign affairs agencies with a homosexual warhead.

Jennifer Roback Morse Compares 'Sexual Revolution' To Nazism, Says It’s Bringing Back Slavery

Jennifer Roback Morse, head of the Ruth Institute — which was formerly affiliated with the National Organization for Marriage — urged conservative law students earlier this month to resist the “pagan ideology” of the “sexual revolution” like those who resisted Nazism.

In a lecture to the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Blackstone Legal Fellowship, Morse explained that while Christianity ended slavery, the sexual revolution is now bringing it back.

“All of these issues — divorce and remarriage, abortion and infanticide, slavery, the buying and selling of human beings — all of these things, the Christian religion put a stop to. But they’re all on their way back because of the sexual revolution,” she said. “The sexual revolution is bringing back all of these points.”

“We, in fact, are on the right side of history,” she said.

Later in the speech, Morse urged the students in the audience to emulate Maximilian Kolbe and Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s stands against Nazism in resisting the “pagan ideology” of the “sexual revolution.”

Beck On Cochran Win: 'We've Been Played! We're Pawns. Period.'

Glenn Beck, as one would expect, is not very happy with Thad Cochran's run-off victory over Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel last night, fuming on his radio program this morning that Cochran's fellow Senators, especially Orrin Hatch, who rallied to Cochran's side are "out and out evil" and declaring that "Washington DC is not a place of representative democracy any more."

Saying that elected leaders like Cochran desperately cling to power because it is the only thing that keeps them alive, Beck ranted that Congress has now become an aristocracy while the citizens are treated like dispensable pawns in a chess match.

"Pawns mean nothing," Beck said. "They can be eaten and taken, it doesn't matter. They're there to block and that's it You can lose them all day long and you can still win the game. I got news for you gang: we've been played! We're pawns. Period. Period.":

WorldNetDaily Pundit Attacks Christians For Encouraging Hispanic 'Invasion'

WorldNetDaily pundit Burt Prelutsky says it is wrong for Christians to care for undocumented immigrants, decrying such actions as treasonous.

In his column today, Prelutsky writes that such Christians are helping Latinos “overrun America by destroying our schools, undermining our economy and over-taxing our social services” and “encouraging one specific group, Hispanics, to invade this nation” in order to “fill their respective pews.”

But he places most of the blame on “homicidal” progressives like President Obama and congressional Democrats who seek to “destroy America” by “weakening our military, alienating our traditional allies, destroying the economy and erasing our borders.”

Prelutsky also calls for Republicans to impeach and prosecute Obama, but then adds the caveat that they should wait because otherwise such moves “would only serve to draw attention away from all the scandals bedeviling the Democrats.”

There are times when I suspect that people like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Boxer and Durbin, should have their photos on the wall of the post office as suspects in the killing of America. Other times, I remember that all of these people, along with the likes of Elijah Cummings, Brad Sherman, Henry Waxman, Sheila Jackson Lee and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, have all been elected numerous times, so perhaps it’s America that’s chosen to commit suicide.

As many of you recall, a doctor named Jack Kevorkian was generally reviled for assisting the terminally ill achieve a painless death. Some people called him a vulture. I was not one of them. It seems to me that if a person chooses to end his pain and suffering by ending his life, he shouldn’t be denied that which we bestow, ironically, on both our beloved pets and the vilest serial killers.

But some of us aren’t yet ready to go, and we certainly aren’t complacent about the homicidal impulses of the so-called progressives. Everywhere we turn, we see them actively attempting to destroy America. We see them weakening our military, alienating our traditional allies, destroying the economy and erasing our borders. And none of these things is happening accidentally or as the result of unfortunate circumstances.



But it’s not the politicians alone who are guilty of this outrage to our sovereignty. They are aided and abetted by the Catholic and evangelical churches. Priests and ministers collude in claiming they are merely following Christ’s teachings when they collect the illegal aliens, feed them, clean them and then bus them to outlying cities and even other states.

Funny, but I don’t recall reading where Jesus told anyone to overrun America by destroying our schools, undermining our economy and over-taxing our social services. They can put all the lipstick, mascara and rouge they like on this particular pig, but their main purpose in flouting the law and common sense is to fill their respective pews.

As for the liberal politicians who condone this scandalous behavior, I find it peculiar that at the same time they promote diversity – at least when it comes to pigmentation and sexual proclivities – they’re encouraging one specific group, Hispanics, to invade this nation.

For this reason, and so many more, I would like to see Barack Obama impeached. But not now, when it would only serve to draw attention away from all the scandals bedeviling the Democrats. But once the midterm elections are over and the Republicans have taken control of the Senate, I want to see Obama tried for high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s bad enough that this bum has managed to conceal all of his essential documents. But it would be criminal if he didn’t face prosecution for turning the IRS, the FBI and even the U.S. Patent Office into his own personal attack dogs, and for violating both the letter and the spirit of the U.S. Constitution.

BarbWire: Boy Scouts In Pride Parade 'Being Used As Little Tools By An Evil Movement Of Sexual Degenerates'

Barbwire columnist Gina Miller is reacting reasonably to the announcement that some Boy Scout troops will march in New York’s LGBT pride parade this weekend:

Back when the leadership of Boy Scouts of America bowed down at the altar of “Big Gay” by allowing openly homosexual boys into their ranks, we warned you that the militant homosexual activists would not be satisfied with this terrible capitulation. No, they wanted openly homosexual men to be allowed as troop leaders and other administrators. They’re still pushing for this. The latest in-your-face statement is being made this Sunday in New York’s homosexual “pride” parade.

This is so sick on so many levels. The sugary words here are a devilish covering for the dark, demented truth of what this is: a perverse attack on young boys who are being used as little tools by an evil movement of sexual degenerates who cannot reproduce, so they must recruit.

Moral straightness is also a scouting virtue that its leadership has flushed down the sewer that is the radical homosexual movement. The Boy Scouts organization has chosen the world over God’s moral truth, and it’s not going to get better for them, because the insatiable lust for power of the radical homosexual movement will be satisfied with nothing short of complete capitulation to its detestable will.

Pastor Says 'Dismal Turnout' At NOM's March For Marriage Helps Satan, Seals America's Doom

While the National Organization for Marriage inexplicably stated that 10,000 people attended last week’s March for Marriage in Washington D.C., pastor Dan Cummins concedes in WorldNetDaily today that “reports put the turnout on the Capitol’s west-side lawn at 2,000.”

“The Mall should have been packed all the way to the Washington Monument with biblical marriage supporters,” Cummins laments, decrying the “dismal turnout” as just another victory for the Satanic left. Cummins writes that “the left, those left at the rapture, [are] desperately attempting to destroy” marriage because “Satan hates marriage.”

While “the March for Marriage ends in Heaven before God’s throne with a countless throng shouting the victory,” the pastor regrets that gay rights supporters used the “lack of support for nuptial bliss” at the march to argue that “marriage equality is becoming accepted by society and the church at large.”

He also cites a new poll showing lackluster opposition to marriage equality, lamenting, “God help us.”

As an electrical storm lit up the skies over the nation’s Capitol on the eve of the March for Marriage Rally, was it a harbinger, a sign, of the stormy road ahead for traditional, natural marriage in America? The National Organization for Marriage Rally (NOM), organized by Brian Brown on June 19, was left somewhat standing in the lurch, literally, on the lawn of the National Mall, as only a handful of the expected 10,000 “betrothed” bothered to make it to the church on time to march down the aisle, actually Constitution Avenue, kneel and pray outside the Supreme Court that marriage’s crumbling vestiges remain intact. Was it a case of a runaway bride?

Reports put the turnout on the Capitol’s west-side lawn at 2,000. This apparent lack of support for nuptial bliss only fuels those who say marriage equality is becoming accepted by society and the church at large – thus concluding, wrongfully in my opinion, that same-sex marriage should be legalized in all 50 states.



Has the church lost its first-love for biblical marriage? According to the marriage equality crowd and recent polling data released by TargetPoint Consulting (TPC), it has. “The majority of Americans continue to support same-sex marriage – and those who are opposed to marriage equality don’t care that much about it at all.”

The poll released by TPC, a Republican polling firm, reveals that the majority of Americans continue to support same-sex marriage. Alex Lundry, who was Mitt Romney’s data director, says anti-gay Americans are just ho-hum about same-sex marriage becoming the law of the land – bad news for the National Organization for Marriage if these polling figures are valid. The report continued that when asked to respond to recent statements made by Family Research Council President Tony Perkins – If the Supreme Court steps in and says, ‘We’re redefining marriage, same-sex marriage will be the law across the land,’ it will create a firestorm of opposition. This will be the straw that broke the camel’s back – 58 percent of same-sex marriage opponents said they “would do nothing, or that there wasn’t anything they would do, or that they would abide by the law of the land” should the Court take such legislative action.

Nothing! Really? God help us.



Soon, they all grow weary – foolish and wise alike – and all fall asleep. So, I’m not a bit surprised the church is sound asleep – all of it – on the issues confronting marriage. Could this explain Friday’s dismal turnout? The Mall should have been packed all the way to the Washington Monument with biblical marriage supporters. Where were they?



Why is the preservation of biblical marriage so important to our culture? Why is the left, those left at the rapture, desperately attempting to destroy it? Marriage is a picture of Christ and His church. It portrays the kingdom of God and his righteousness revealed on earth. That’s why Satan hates marriage.



The March for Marriage will not end with a small remnant praying before the Supreme Court. It will not end with blinded bloggers bloviating that the church has lost the battle and Christians could care less. No, the March for Marriage ends in Heaven before God’s throne with a countless throng shouting the victory.

William Gheen Asks ALIPAC Members To Mail Used Underwear To Undocumented Immigrants

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is urging his group’s members to “send the illegals and DC politicians a message” by mailing them used underwear.

Gheen’s plea comes in response to a routine ICE contract solicitation for underwear for immigrants at detention facilities, which was picked up by Brietbart News.

“Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans,” Gheen writes.

Washington, DC -- ALIPAC.us is calling for tens of thousands of Americans to mail their gently used underwear to Barack Obama and John Boehner to answer Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) need for free underwear for the new surge of illegal immigrants crossing America's borders, enticed by promises of immigration reform amnesty.

While many Americans will be tempted to send the underwear donations unwashed, ALIPAC is reminding citizens that DC is already full of dirty laundry.

"Obama and Boehner have proven once and for all that their talk of passing immigration reform amnesty, instead of enforcing America's existing border and immigration laws, only brings more unwanted and destructive illegal immigration!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans."

Americans who want to help the illegals and Americans who are upset that John Boehner and Barack Obama are throwing the future for American children under the bus along with their Oaths of Office, the US Constitution, the outcome of our elections, and the current laws of Congress, are encouraged to mail their used underwear to Barack Obama at The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500, and John Boehner at Office of the Speaker, H-232 The Capitol, Washington, DC 20515.

Christian Reconstructionist And Southern Secessionist Michael Peroutka Leading In GOP Primary

Far from the spotlight of Thad Cochran’s surprise defeat of his Tea Party challenger in Mississippi, radical Christian Reconstructionist and southern secessionist Michael Peroutka has apparently won the Republican primary for a county council seat in Maryland’s Anne Arundel County. As of early this morning, with all precincts reporting, the largely self-financing Peroutka had a 36-vote lead over his closest competitor in a five-way primary. But absentee ballots are still being counted, so Anne Arundel County voters could yet be spared a Peroutka general election candidacy.

We have a few things for county voters to think about.

As Miranda reported yesterday, Peroutka recently declared that, because the Maryland General Assembly has passed laws that “violate God’s law,” it is “no longer a valid legislative body” and as a result, none of the laws it has passed are “legally valid and legally enforceable.”

Peroutka feels that way about civil rights laws in general. In a conversation with right-wing talk show host Steve Deace last fall, Peroutka denounced civil unions and laws against anti-gay discrimination as unconstitutional, then added:

“I would include the so-called civil rights laws are not law, they never should’ve been passed, they’re not law now, they weren’t law then, they aren’t law now because there is no such thing as a civil right.”

Peroutka runs the Institute on the Constitution, which promotes Christian Reconstructionist ideology, and, as reported by journalist Sarah Posner, has trained local Tea Party groups with its 12-part course on the biblical basis of the Constitution. Peroutka embraces Christian Reconstructionists’ radically limited view of the role of government. He has written:

Since civil government is ordained by God in order to protect God-given rights, then the function of civil government is to obey God and to enforce God’s law – PERIOD.

It is not the role of civil government to house, feed, clothe, educate or give heath care to…ANYBODY!

Peroutka said much the same thing at Larry Klaymen’s failed revolutionary rally in Washington, D.C. earlier this year which was supposed to oust President Obama from office.

“There is a God. Our rights come from him. The purpose of civil government is to protect and defend God-given rights. This is the American view of law and government. It also happens to be the biblical view of law and government. America was founded upon the biblical view of law and government….”

That law, of course, includes Peroutka’s interpretation of Old Testament verses on homosexuality. He declared Michael Sam, the college football star who came out as gay this year, to be “publicly in violation of Leviticus 18:22” and declared that the celebratory kiss between Sam and his boyfriend during the NFL draft was the kind of “sewer filth” that caused him to get rid of cable TV. He has said that laws against anti-gay discrimination in the workplace are part of a broader agenda that will result in people being forced “to engage in the perversion.”

Peroutka also helps run a family foundation that recently contributed to the Creation Museum a million-dollar dinosaur fossil after considering re-burying it to keep it out of the hands of paleontologists who might use it to promote the theory of evolution. It sounds crazy until you remember that Peroutka believes “the promotion of evolution is an act of disloyalty to America.”

What I’m saying is that there is no way you could promote or believe in evolution and sing ‘God Bless America’ during the 7th inning stretch.”

“All men are created equal, they are not evolved equal, get it?” he adds. “So evolution is anti-American.”

All this extremism aside, it is not clear why Maryland Republicans would want to back his candidacy. Last fall, Peroutka expressed nothing but contempt for the Republican Party:

Anyone, including those who identify with the ‘Tea Party’, who loves America and desires real reform, would do well to disengage themselves from the Republican Party and their brand of worthless, Godless, unprincipled conservatism.”

 

Gordon Klingenschmitt, The Demon-Obsessed Anti-Gay Exorcist, Wins GOP Primary In Colorado

Last year, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt announced that he was running for a seat in Colorado's legislature and his long history as a disgraced former Navy Chaplain who brags about having successfully performed an exorcism on a lesbian soldier and who has stated again and again that demonic spirits are behind everything from abortion to gay marriage to ENDA to President Obama to Madonna won him the support of the vast majority of GOP caucus-goers earlier this year, setting up a primary showdown against another GOP hopeful which took place last night.

Klingenschmitt won that primary race by several hundred votes, becoming the official Republican nominee for House District 15 in the Colorado House of Representatives, as he announced on his Facebook page:

We won! Thanks to 35 volunteers knocking on doors and YOUR grassroots donations, I am now the Republican nominee for State Rep in Colorado Springs HD15.

The Denver Post reports "Gordon Klingenschmitt beat Dave Williams in the GOP race for the seat held by Rep. Mark Waller, R-Colorado Springs, who opted to run for attorney general..."

RESULTS: Klingenschmitt 52.6% (3,472 votes) Williams 47.3% (3,128 votes)

Isn't this great news? Honestly the race was closer than I expected, and I congratulate my Republican opponent for running a very competitive race. Now we must beat the Democrat.

However, we have some debt from the primary race. I just got a bill for $4,138 in printing costs and we have a few more bills outstanding, due this week.

Can you please contribute to help us repay our primary debt for this election victory? Then we can start from a clean slate to run against a common-core anti-gun Democrat in Nov.

Just let that sink in: a man who thinks that "Obamacare causes cancer," that the Bible commands people to own guns in order to "defend themselves against left wing crazies," and that the FCC is allowing demonic spirits to "molest and visually rape your children" is now a Republican candidate for office:

Klingenschmitt is a viciously anti-gay theocrat who openly proclaims that American law must reflect God's law, which is why gay people should be discriminated against since only people who are going to heaven are entitled to equal treatment by the government:

Gays, he says, have something inhuman and demonic inside of them, which is why he declares that teaching kids about gay marriage is mental rape and advocates that Christians should print anti-gay Bible verses on the backs of gay wedding photos:

Klingenschmitt has declared that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy should never have been repealed since gay soldiers cannot serve effectively in combat because they are constantly "taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels":

It is truly amazing that Colorado Republicans have now nominated a candidate for state office who proudly declares that "the ultimate hate speech is to endorse homosexuality because you give them the impression that it's okay and that deceives them and ultimately trips them into Hell":

Alex Jones Calls Hillary Clinton A 'Cancer' That 'Keeps Coming Back'

Alex Jones is miffed about reports that one of Hillary Clinton’s clients when she was a defense attorney was an accused child rapist, because as we all know in the American system of justice unsavory clients do not deserve legal representation.

On his radio program yesterday, Jones launched into a rant against Clinton, attacking her for the well-known photo of her looking at her phone, which he called “disgusting ” and “gangster,” and upbraiding her fellow “women who run the State Department right now who are overthrowing Ukraine and turning it over to Nazis and turning areas of Syria and Iraq over to Al Qaeda.”

He said that Clinton and other women have a warped way of thinking that leads to “endless evil”: “I hate men, that’s a Freudian slip because they’re kind of like men, and hate my kids.”

“I’d vote for the Le Pen lady over in France, she’s a Tea Party type libertarian, I’d get down and kiss her feet,” he said of the leader of France’s neo-fascist National Front party Marine Le Pen. 

“I see flaming, evil, criminal fascism, I know it when I see it, and that’s what Hillary Clinton is and has always been,” Jones said. “We just can’t seem to ever get rid of her, it’s like cancer, it just keeps coming back.”

Chris McDaniel Closes Out Senate Race By Campaigning With Bryan Fischer And Wayne Allyn Root

Republican Senate candidate Chris McDaniel spent this weekend rolling around Mississippi on the Tea Party Express bus, along with a motley assortment of fringe right-wing extremists.

McDaniel’s fellow travelers in his last tour before today's runoff election against Sen. Thad Cochran included Wayne Allyn Root, who told audiences that President Obama is a “Manchurian candidate” who lied about his resume; a songwriting duo known for the anti-immigrant song “Press 1 for English”; and notoriously anti-gay, anti-Muslim, anti-many-other-people American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, who granted McDaniel what he said was his very first public endorsement of a candidate for office.

At the group’s stop in Biloxi, Root — a one-time Libertarian Party nominee for vice president — regaled the crowd with his theory that President Obama is a “Manchurian candidate” who “cut his Afro” in order to infiltrate the government, collapse the economy and create a permanent Democratic majority.

Strangely, although Root implies that President Obama did not actually attend Columbia University, he also claims that the president learned this “Manchurian” strategy at Columbia.

Root also told the crowd that “we’re the makers and Obama’s voters are the takers,” claiming that conservative radio exists because conservatives are listening to the radio on their way to work, while liberals are “home collecting their checks watching Oprah and Jerry Springer and ads for personal injury attorneys.”

At the bus’s Tupelo stop, Fischer made a surprise appearance to give McDaniel what he said was his first-ever public endorsement of a candidate for office, citing McDaniel's "Mississippi values." 

Also joining McDaniel on the Tea Party Express bus were Ron and Kay Rivoli, who the Tea Party group proudly notes are “best known for their hit song, ‘Press 1 for English,’ which has over 16 million views on YouTube.”

The Rivolis didn’t sing "Press 1 for English" at the McDaniel rallies, opting instead for a song about how welfare is turning the U.S. into the “USSA.” But here’s a look at their hit song, in which they announce, “I do not live in China, Mexico, no foreign place, and English is the language of these United States.”

As a bonus, here’s the Rivolis' song complaining about how liberals are always playing the “racist card.”

If you really want to, you can also listen to their anthem in support of Arizona's notorious anti-immigrant bill, SB1070.

 

Larry Klayman Censured For Breaking Ethics Rules, Will Go Back To Saving America

Larry Klayman, the right-wing lawyer whose bizarre diatribesrelentless lawsuits and frequent threats to overthrow President Obama are routinely featured here on Right Wing Watch, today “agreed to accept a public censure for violating attorney ethics rules” dealing with a long-running dispute with the group he founded, Judicial Watch.

Ever so modest, he said he acquiesced to the censure agreement so he can back to his fulltime job of trying to “protect the American people.”

The Legal Times reports:

“I wanted to put [the ethics case] behind me because I have a lot of important things to do to also protect the American people,” Klayman said on Tuesday.

The agreement with bar counsel is still subject to review. If a hearing committee accepts the deal, it will recommend approval to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, which makes the final decision. If the committee rejects the agreement, the case will be sent back to bar counsel for prosecution.



Bar Counsel Wallace Shipp Jr. declined to comment. Judicial Watch President Thomas Fitton, who filed the ethics complaint against Klayman in 2008, said he would reserve any comment for the hearing committee’s review.

Klayman founded Judicial Watch and served as its chairman and general counsel from 1994 to 2003. According to the agreement Klayman signed with bar counsel, he represented three individuals suing Judicial Watch between 2006 and 2008. He didn’t get Judicial Watch’s consent to take those cases, as required by the local ethics rules when there are conflicts of interest involving a former client.

Klayman has clashed with Judicial Watch since leaving the organization. Earlier this month, a federal jury in Florida awarded Klayman $181,000 in a defamation suit he brought against the organization. Klayman, in a June 20 brief defending his actions against the ethics charges, claimed the bar proceeding was “yet another attempt by the directors of Judicial Watch to sabotage and damage” him.



Bar counsel and Klayman, who represented himself, agreed “that a public censure strikes the correct balance of protecting the public and deterring future misconduct.”

NC Lt. Gov. Dan Forest: America 'Must Decide For Or Against God'

North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest followed Texas Lt. Gov. candidate Dan Patrick to the microphone at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s 2014 Road to Majority conference. Forest joked about following another “Lieutenant Dan” and said he’d been backstage crossing things out because Patrick was already saying them. Indeed, Forest’s comments about the Constitution being grounded in “biblical truth” echoed Patrick’s Christian-nation address. “My friends,” Forest said, “America is at a great crossroads where it must decide for or against God.”

Excerpts from Dan Forest's remarks:

Forest quoted George Washington and Abraham Lincoln writing about the nation relying on God’s aid, and he said that the Declaration of Independence’s assertion that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness was “one small declaration from tyranny, one giant declaration of dependence upon Almighty God.”

American leaders, he said, continued to rely on God until Supreme Court rulings on church-state separation:

In America, as time moved on, our leaders sought the help of the Lord through the great and terrible Civil War, through a Great Depression, through two great world wars and numerous other conflicts. Then, in 1947 our Supreme Court separated church and state and placed a high wall between the two. In 1962 our Supreme Court removed prayer from our public schools. In 1973, our Supreme Court ruled that it was OK to kill children still in the womb. In the span of a mere 25 years, we, the people allowed our nation to turn its back on God in the name of independence and freedom.

And he began a litany of ways he said America had turned its back on God:

We have forgotten God and we call it freedom.

We kill our children for convenience, and we call it freedom.

We enslave our poor in welfare and call it freedom.

We take from the hard working and give to the sluggard in the name of income equality and call it freedom.

We allow our children to become addicted to pornography in the name of free speech and we call it freedom.

We rack up mountains of debt on the backs of our grandchildren and we call it freedom.

We reward the criminal at the expense of the victim and we call it freedom.

We take God out of our schoolhouse, out of our statehouse, out of our courthouse and we call it freedom.

We allow a few individuals in the courts to determine the moral standard for all and we call it freedom.

Forest said the country must choose between “policy band-aids” and getting at the root of problems, which is that we as a nation have taken our eyes of God, “who is the giver of truth, virtue, and a moral compass.”

The heart of the matter is we have forgotten God. We have kicked him out of our house, out of our schoolhouse, out of our courthouse, and out of our statehouse, and now, out of our nation. We call it everything but what it is, we call it everything but sin, the turning away from God.

He said that the national focus on rebuilding after the 9/11 attacks was done in the name of freedom and security, but that we did it by our own strength rather than relying on God.

We don’t just need, my friends, to rebuild the walls of America. We need to rebuild the biblical foundation upon which the walls sit. We need to trust God. Fear only comes when we don’t believe that God is who he says he is. If God is the creator of the universe, if he allows our hearts to beat and our lungs to breathe, why do we not trust him? If we trust God, my friends, there is nothing we can’t accomplish. With him we can do anything. Apart from him we can do nothing. Seek first his kingdom and all these things will be given.

We continue to declare ‘God Bless America’ without doing our part, without prayer, without fasting, and repentance as a nation, without recognizing the sins we commit and humbling ourselves before the sovereign ruler of nations, and asking for forgiveness.

It is time for America to recognize that freedom does not come from being a nation of wealth, power, influence, abundance, and ease – but rather it comes from being a humble nation on its knees. It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

 

Linda Harvey Explains Why Gay Parents Will Probably Abuse Their Kids

Mission America’s Linda Harvey is committed to “helping” families shield their children from gay people, even going so far as to say that parents should refuse to allow openly gay doctors or nurses to care for their kids.

In her radio bulletin today, Harvey offered yet another commentary about the how gay people will likely molest kids, including their own children, because “when you are open to sinful, God-defying behavior in one profound way, violating other boundaries happens more easily.”

We have to consider at all times the effect of homosexual activism on children and the open and proud homosexual adult is a terrible influence on children. Yes we must keep trying to witness to such people but we’re at the point where protection from their harmful influence is at least as important. Homosexual adults are harmful role models as they promote sinful behavior while calling it something to be proud of.

It’s not just the openly homosexual teacher, but kids raised in a homosexual home have this influence in triple intensity and intimacy. These adults are living a big lie and kids know this in their hearts. Even if their intentions are good, their framework is seriously wrong. And yes there are adults who molest children. It’s not every adult in this lifestyle, of course, but it certainly seems acceptable to some. Where are the built-in protections? Homosexual groups are busy dismantling them in schools and in public places with parents seen as obstacles. Why? When you are open to sinful, God-defying behavior in one profound way, violating other boundaries happens more easily.
