Stemberger: Gay Boy Scouts Are 'Not Going To Be Equal, They’re Going To Be Segregated'

John Stemberger appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show to discuss the looming vote over whether to allow openly gay youth in the Boy Scouts of America, where he urged listeners to “pray that the delegates vote no.” He warned that the Boy Scouts will commit “suicide” if they allow openly gay members, whom he said will be “segregated” and put “in separate tents” from the other boys.

Scouting does not discriminate currently, we don’t care about sexual orientation don’t want sex to even be involved with the program. It’s about camping, tying knots, canoes, swimming and letting boys be boys. We don’t need to have this thing where we’re identifying—because you know what the irony of this whole thing is that if they make this change, not only will it devastate the program in terms of the people that will leave and the finances but the very thing that gays want is to be treated the gays but scouting is going to have to segregate them in separate tents just from a liability standpoint. They’re not going to be able to put openly gay boys—I mean you wouldn’t put boys and girls together in the same tent, nor would you put a boy who is attracted to another boy tenting with him in the same quarters. So the very thing they want to be equal, they’re not going to be equal, they’re going to be segregated. It’s a mess, scouting is playing suicide and we pray that the delegates vote no.

He said that gays will intentionally join the scouts if the ban is lifted because they “either have interest in the other boys or to promote their agenda,” which he said “will utterly destroy the program.”

What they’re thinking of is a little boy saying, ‘oh I think I’m attracted to guys, I think I’m gay,’ well that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the sixteen, seventeen-year-old openly gay activist from the local campus that is there for ill-motives: there as a plaintiff, there as a person to either have interest in the other boys or to promote their agenda. That is going to be the problem, not the boys—we have those boys already, scoutmasters take them in and we deal with them, we talk with them, we work with them. It’s the activists that we’re concerned with and that’s why we think sex and politics have absolutely no place in scouting, it will utterly destroy the program.

Klingenschmitt Stands By Report He Knows to be False

Last week, we wrote a post noting that "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt had used a debunked story of high school runner who was supposedly disqualified from a race after thanking God as the topic of his one minute prayer update, as well as a segment on his "Pray In Jesus Name Show" in which he blamed the incident on demonic possession.

As we pointed out, the student in question and his family both acknowledged that the allegations that he had been disqualified for exercising his Christian faith were entirely false. 

But that hasn't prompted Klingenschmitt to remove the videos or ever correct the record.  In fact, Klingenschmitt says he stands by the false claims and has even updated the description of his video to defend it:

We stand by the track story, which was originally confirmed by the parents as a "religious" gesture here: http://www.wfaa.com/home/205794321.html The fact the kid later (under tremendous pressure) declined to file charges does not mean the referee's motive was not suspect and anti-religious. Pointing to God is an act of gratitude, not disrespect, and should not be punished as disrespectful.

The story Klingenschmitt cites was entirely debunked several days later ... but Klingenschmitt says that he continues to "stand by" it even though everyone directly involved in it admits that it was false. 

Does Glenn Beck Even Read 'The Blaze'?

Glenn Beck dedicated his opening monologue last night to discussing the IRS scandal during which he highlighted a story from his own The Blaze website entitled "Is This the ‘Smoking Gun’ That Ties the IRS Scandal to the White House?"

Citing the story, Beck raised questions about why the president of the IRS employee's union was at the White House the day before the IRS implemented the policy supposedly targeting conservative groups.

"Is that a coincidence?" Beck asked. "I don't know if we're going to find out because the damage control has already begun. [The White House] just released a statement denying that Kelly even met with the President or the First Lady; quote 'President Kelly did not have any direct contact - key word there, 'direct' - with the President or the First Lady.' Okay. What were you doing there?"

If Beck had bothered to even read the very story he was citing, he would have found the answer to his question of what Kelly was doing there:

First, Kelley visiting the White House in March of 2010 is not in of itself an extraordinary event. Indeed, according to Visitor Logs, she had already met with President Obama on a few occasions.

Second, we must point out that 117 “total people” were present at the 2010 White House forum on “Worplace Flexibility,” which the log lists as the reason for the visit. To be fair, that seems to point to a larger event as opposed to Kelley meeting with Obama behind closed doors.

Third, according to visitor records, the 2010 forum was held in the White House’s South Court Auditorium, which as former White House communications worker Josh King points out, is simply a large auditorium.

“On most days, South Court Auditorium is a generic, stadium-style meeting room with four or five rows of seats; space in the back of the room for cameras sitting on tripods; a small buffer area in front of the stage for still photographers to capture the key moment; and handy backstage doors for easy ingress and egress by the principals,” King explains.

Not exactly top-secret, private meeting material here.

Bachmann: 'God Is Going to Answer Our Prayers' and Repeal Obamacare

On his radio program today, James Dobson interviewed Rep. Michele Bachmann about the IRS scandal and his contention that his organization's application was delayed because he had been critical of President Obama.

Near the end of the discussion, Dobson attempted to connect the issue to the implementation of health care reform, worrying that IRS bureaucrats would have access to everyone's health records and start denying people access to care based on political positions.

Bachmann replied that concerns such as this were exactly why it is so important to repeal Obamacare, which will miraculously happen before the end of Obama's term when he is compelled to sign and "repudiate own signature piece of legislation" through an act of God:

That's why you saw the House of Representatives pass my bill, the full repeal of Obamacare last week, and that's why I have renewed confidence that we can see this bill pass in the Senate and I think the President will ultimately be forced to repudiate his own signature piece of legislation because the American people will demand it.

And I think before his second term is over, we're going to see a miracle before our eyes, I believe God is going to answer our prayers and we'll be freed from the yoke of Obamacare. I believe that's going to happen and we saw step one last week with the repeal of Obamacare in the House. We have two more steps. We serve a mighty God and I believe it can happen.

Markell Fears Minnesota Cities May Be Destroyed Over Gay Marriage

Like her fellow Minnesota-based conservative talk show host Bradlee Dean, End Times broadcaster Jan Markell is warning that Minnesota is about to experience divine punishment over the state’s new marriage equality law. She told the American Family Association’s news service that gay people and Muslims have turned Minnesota into “the occult capital of America,” noting that “God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality.”

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, laments that The North Star State has become a mecca for many unpleasant things.

"We're the occult capital of America," she tells OneNewsNow. "We certainly have more Islamic influence probably than any other place, other than Dearborn, Michigan. We're certainly one of the gay capitals, and now with homosexual marriage a reality, many Christians, solid pro-family-type people -- we don't know where to run to."

And Markell believes Minnesota Christians are concerned about God's judgment on the state.

"Whether it be economically or some weather-related kind of a tragedy, but God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality; He speaks out on this issue in a very clear manner and calls this an abomination," the Olive Tree Ministries founder warns.

Markell also hosted David Wheaton of The Christian Worldview on her weekend program, Understanding the Times, to discuss Jason Collins and the public reaction to his decision to come out of the closet. Wheaton said that acceptance of Collins and other gay people is turning America into a “disgrace to God,” while Markell claimed that President Obama’s support for Collins proves that “we are headed into big trouble.”

Cuccinelli Running Mate’s Epic Watermelon-Smashing Campaign Ad

E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP’s newly minted nominee for Lt. Governor, is not a subtle guy. His extreme rhetoric and views, which we’ve been covering for years, will come as a shock to most Virginians. So will his Tea Party antics. In that sense, Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t have found a better running mate.

In this campaign ad from last year — when Jackson lost badly to George Allen in the GOP Senate primary – Jackson is seen wielding an axe to chop melons representing the federal budget, unemployment and Obamacare. Jackson says that Obama wants to use “a scalpel to cut the federal budget” while he believes “we need to use an axe.” Watch:

Ah, yes. “Bold, decisive leadership.” That’s exactly what comes to mind when watching the ad. Incidentally, the axe was a recurring theme, as seen here:

Fans of the 1980s watermelon-smashing comedian Gallagher may rejoice, but Virginians need to understand that Jackson isn’t just a sideshow – he’s a real threat. Ken Cuccinelli and Jackson are favored to win if voters don’t turn out this November like they did in 2012.

Radical End Times Radio Host Rick Wiles Interviews Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)

On Friday's radio broadcast, End Times radio host Rick Wiles interviewed Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) to discuss Fleming's letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel raising concerns about reports that Pentagon officials had met with Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

It was more than a little ironic to listen to Wiles and Fleming voice their collective disbelief that anyone from the government would dare to meet with someone who had said derogatory things about those with whom they disagree:

Wiles: Congressman Fleming is on the telephone. Congressman, glad to have you on the program.

Fleming: Hey Rick, great to talk with you again.

Wiles: I appreciate you being in the forefront of questioning Defense Chief Hagel on his Mikey Weinstein matter.  Has Secretary Hagel responded to your letter yet?

Fleming: We have no heard back from Secretary Hagel and I think that's most unfortunate again because Mikey Weinstein is somebody whose organization name, religious freedom, is an oxymoron for what it really is, which is religious non-freedom.  And so it's very disconcerting to know that a guy with this kind of past, someone who openly hate Christians, who calls Christians the Taliban and al Qaeda and talks about Christians committing spiritual rape and many other derogatory things; it's very problematic for someone to get high-level meetings with the Adjutant General of the Air Force and other high-level officers.

...

Wiles: You know, Congressman, I'm a pastor and I would never use that kind of language in referring to people who have other religious beliefs serving in the military, I just think that kind of language is over the top so I can't understand why the Pentagon would be meeting with somebody talking like this.

Fleming: That is a very, very important question because that really smacks of bigotry.

Allow us to point out that Wiles, who says he would never use over the top language, has asserted that President Obama is "evil," demon-possessed" and a "devil from Hell" while warning that President Obama's policies will lead to genocide against Christians and declaring that "Barack Obama has spiritually sodomized the nation."

So just let it sink in that Rep. Fleming spent twenty minutes talking to Wiles about how outrageous it is that high-level government officials would ever talk with someone who has said "derogatory things."

Krikorian Blames 'Ethnic Chauvinist Groups' for Immigration Woes

Appearing on “The Final Say” radio program earlier this month, Center for Immigration Studies executive director Mark Krikorian lamented that “left-wing groups, ethnic chauvinist groups and big business all work together to prevent the enforcement of immigration laws.”

If “ethnic chauvinist” sounds familiar, it’s because that’s what Arizona’s superintendent of schools called the Chicano studies classes that he and his fellow Republicans managed to ban from public schools.

Krikorian: Quite honestly, Mexico has a tighter immigration system, at least on paper, than we do. In fact, Mexico’s immigration system is much more punitive than ours and much more restrictive, more like Japan’s in the sense of who’s allowed in and what rights they have. It’s very primitive, I would say, backwards in the sense of what the rules are, but they actually enforce their rules. That’s the problem for us, is that we… the political incentive to actually enforce the rules is very weak here because left-wing groups, ethnic chauvinist groups and big business all work together to prevent the enforcement of immigration laws.

Host: Which, by its very nature, should make us all run in fear.

Krikorian: Sure, yeah, absolutely. I mean, it’s all big institutions. Big Government, Big Business, Big Media, Big Philanthropy, they’re all on the same side.

E.W. Jackson: A Vote for Me is a Vote for 'Glory of God'

Virginia’s new Republican Lt. Gov nominee E.W. Jackson made an unsuccessful run last year for the GOP nomination to the U.S. Senate. In this “message to the church” from that campaign, Jackson said there was a “calling on his life” to run for the Senate seat. He warned that “our culture is becoming increasingly hostile to Christianity” and he criticized Rep. Bobby Scott, a strong advocate of church-state separation. Jackson urged Christians to “rise up,” go to the polls, and “cast a vote for the glory of God,” i.e., for his Senate candidacy. The section quoted below begins at 2:35.

“This is an emergency, a critical point in American history. Continuing down the path we are on will result in escalating persecution of Christianity, but even worse, risk losing the favor of God on our country, which would be an unimaginable horror. I am asking Christians to unite on the biblical principles which founded our country and help me take those principles to the United States Senate. Those who understand the history of our country know the vital role the church played not only in the establishment of hospitals, colleges, and a host of other charitable organizations, but in the revolution which established this great nation. If Christians do not rise up, the future of our country is bleak. I ask you to go to the polls on June 12 and cast a vote for the glory of God. I’m not a perfect man, but I love the Lord, and I love this country, and I will always be grateful that He has saved me and gave me citizenship to the most free and prosperous nation in history. I will fight to see to it that it stays that way. As a brother in Christ, I ask for your prayers, your support, and for your vote on June 12 in the Republican primary.…"

Barton: AIDS Is God's Penalty for Those Who Engage in 'Shameful Sexual Acts'

On today's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton reiterated his belief that we will never be able to find a cure for AIDS because the disease is God's punishment for homosexuality, but taking it a step further by saying that even if we do cure AIDS, new deadly diseases will continue to emerge because God says there must be a "penalty" for engaging in these kinds of "shameful sexual acts":

I've gone on record before, and I'll say it again: I think Romans 1:27 is one of the reasons that we'll never find a complete cure for AIDS; and if we do there will be another disease pop up like this bacterial meningitis because the Bible says this, Romans 1:27 says 'men committed shameful acts with other men, sexual acts, and received in themselves the due penalty for the error.'

There is going to be a consequence for this type of sexual behavior, so even if we find a cure for AIDS, something like bacterial meningitis is going to pop up; if we cure that, something else is going to pop up because God says there is a penalty in your own body when you do this kind of sexual acts - the Bible calls them shameful sexual acts - and so we as Christians have to have that same position, regardless of what the culture says.

Schlafly Worries About Patriotism of Today's Immigrants Compared to 'Irish, Italian, Jewish' Predecessors

Phyllis Schlafly has been going all out in opposition to comprehensive immigration reform, warning that would be “suicide for the GOP” and that it’s all part of President Obama’s plan to “destroy our system.”

So it makes sense that this month’s "Phyllis Schlafly Report" is devoted entirely to opposing immigration reform. In particular, Schlafly is worried that immigration authorities aren’t “vetting” immigration applicants to “make sure that the applicant really wants to become an American.” This, she claims, is more necessary than in the past because “the immigrants of earlier generations, Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc., certainly did want to be Americans; like Irving Berlin, their attitude was God Bless America.”

Schlafly is concerned as well that immigrants be made to “accept the rule that disputes in our courts must be decided according to U.S. law, not any foreign law,” a nod to the Right’s bogus “Sharia law” conspiracy theory.

But don’t read too much into this. After all, Schlafly has explicitly assured us that her opposition to immigration reform is “not racist, isolationist, nativist, or xenophobic.”

The vetting of immigrants should make sure that the applicant really wants to become an American. The immigrants of earlier generations, Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc., certainly did want to be Americans; like Irving Berlin, their attitude was God Bless America.

There is plenty of evidence that legal and illegal immigrants of various nationalities, in contravention of our citizenship pledge, retain their loyalty to the land they came from. Brian Fishman, who studies terrorism at the New America Foundation in Washington, says, “I think there’s often a sense of divided loyalties in these cases where Americans turn to violent jihad — are you American first or are you Muslim first?”

Our government should investigate thoroughly and reject those who do not want to become Americans, obey our Constitution and laws, speak our language, and salute our Flag. And they have to accept the rule that disputes in our courts must be decided according to U.S. law, not any foreign law.

E.W. Jackson: Obama Is an Atheist/Muslim and We're 'Dealing With An Evil Presence'

Now that E.W Jackson has vaulted from the outer fringes of the Religious Right movement onto the Virgina election ballot as the GOP's nominee to become Lt. Governor, his previous statements and appearances carry an entirely new significance and relevance.

Such as, for instance, his appearance on Victoria Jackson's program last year where he stated that "the idea that Barack Obama is a Christian is laughable" and added that Obama "is, at best, a confused man [and] is, at worst, has the sensibilities .... of an atheists and a Muslim."

The real problem, Jackson went on to explain, was that African Americans have not come to grips with the fact that "we're really dealing with an evil presence":

VA GOP Lt. Governor Nominee E.W. Jackson: Homosexuality Is 'Poison,' Democrats Are Slave Masters & Obama Is a Secret Muslim

With the ultraconservative Ken Cuccinelli as their candidate for governor, it only makes sense that Virginia Republican delegates picked far-right pastor and failed U.S. Senate candidate E. W. Jackson as their nominee for Lt. Governor.

Jackson is running on a “message to inspire and unite Virginia,” which apparently includes uniting Virginians around bigotry towards gays and lesbians, comparing Democrats to slave masters and the Antichrist and warning that President Obama is a secret Muslim.

Jackson on gays and lesbians:

  • Referred to gays and lesbians as “perverted,” “degenerate,” “spiritually darkened” and “frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally.”
  • Said regarding homosexuality: “it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of.”
  • Argued that gays seek to “sexualize [children] at the earliest possible age” and use “totalitarian” tactics.
  • Claimed gays are hurting black women: “I’ve heard a lot of young black ladies that a lot of young black men seem to be gay. I’ve heard them complain about it, they say ‘so many of these guys are homosexuals’ and they are frankly frustrated by it.”
  • Demanded the reinstitution of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell : “The military has been decimated by this lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender policy that has now been implemented. It’s an abomination and it’s only going to weaken us militarily and they need to undo it,” warning that the policy’s repeal is a “disaster of historic proportions.”
  • Contended that homosexuality is “killing black men by the thousands” and said of gay rights advocates: “what they’re promoting is killing people.”
  • Called GLSEN founder and anti-bullying activist Kevin Jennings a “radical homosexual activist” who should have been “imprisoned” in a letter demanding he resign as head of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.
  • Said there is a “direct connection” between gays and pedophilia.

Jackson on Obama and Democrats:

  • Wondered how the Democratic Party “managed to hold on to black Christians in spite of an agenda worthy of the Antichrist.”
  • Proclaimed that “the Democrat Party has shown itself to be anti-Christian, anti-Bible, anti-family, anti-life and anti-God… We're calling people to come out of the Democrat Party and not support candidates who represent its values and the rebellion that it represents against God. That certainly would include President Barack Obama.”
  • Claimed that Democratic Party supporters are “insulting their faith and blaspheming their God” by supporting a “coalition of the godless.”
  • Warned that ministers who support Obama “are going to have to answer to God” if they encourage “their congregations to support this abomination.”
  • Said Democrats believe “that the Bible is a lie and indeed they are saying that God is a liar.”
  • Argued that “liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that’s a fact.”
  • Maintained that Obama “seems to have a lot of sympathy for even radical Islam” and “clearly has Muslim sensibilities,” arguing that Obama “certainly does have a lot of affection and favor for Islam, that seems to be his priority…Christianity, I don’t really think about that with him, I really don’t, that’s a joke.”   
  • Compared Democratic leaders to “slave masters” who make sure that black people who disagree with them are “punished.”
  • Insisted that Planned Parenthood “has been far more lethal to Black lives than the KKK ever was.”
  • Predicted that African Americans will “overwhelmingly” vote against Obama as a result of his endorsement of marriage equality and a move of God to “stir the hearts of His people” and push them against the Democrats.
  • Maintained that the President and First Lady are both Communist sympathizers who dislike America.

'Coach' Dave Calls on Obama to 'Admit He's the First Openly Gay President'

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire is calling upon President Obama to come clean with the American people by admitting that he is a socialist who is trying to destroy the economy and that he is not really a Christian.

But mostly, Daubenmire wants Obama to "come out of the closet" and admit that he is gay:

I think it's time for President Obama to come out of the closet. Yeah, you heard me. How about he come out and admit he's the first openly gay president or, better yet, openly bi-sexual president.  You know, there's some history there. President Obama, his face seems to really light up when he begins to talk about the gay agenda.  He was so proud when that Jason Collins came out of the closet ... I think it's time to have the first gay president come out of the closet.

Stemberger: 'Anything That Has the Word 'Gay' on it [is] Inappropriate for Kids'

Religious Right activist John Stemberger is continuing his fight against a proposal to end the Boy Scouts of America's ban on gay members, telling Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association that "anything that has the word 'gay' on it in our culture ... [is] guaranteed to be inappropriate for kids."

Wildmon asked why gay activists don't just start their own Gay Scouts of America program instead of forcing this sort of change on the Boy Scouts, which prompted Stemberger to respond that gay activists want to "flaunt their sexuality [and] promote political, social agenda" to children, which is just utterly inappropriate.

"You look at anything that has the world 'gay' on it in our culture," Stemberger said, "a gay magazine, a gay blog, a gay website, a gay parade, you name it, it's gonna be guaranteed to be inappropriate for kids. And that's what we're talking about; we talking about injecting hyper-sexuality and a leftist political agenda right into the veins of the Boy Scouts and it will utterly devastate it":

Stockman: Obama Is 'Going To Be The President of the United States and Mexico'

Along with Steve King, Republican congressman Steve Stockman of Texas also appeared on The Steve Deace Show last night to criticize the push for comprehensive immigration reform and President Obama’s speech in Mexico City.

Stockman claimed Obama “basically told everybody in Mexico our doors are open, come up, come up, please,” and that they’re “all going to have a great time because y’all are going to be legal.” “He’s going to be the President of the United States and Mexico,” Stockman said.

After touting the very, very discredited Heritage Foundation report on the immigration bill, Stockman later insisted that “there will never be another Republican president and the entire agenda of the left will become the law of the land” if Congress passes a reform bill: “This is the rope that they’re hanging us and we’re going to hang ourselves with it and we’re willingly doing it.”

Stockman: It’s a horrible bill. It legalizes—I don’t know if you remember this Steve but you go down and look in Mexico, about two weeks ago the President went down there and basically told everybody in Mexico our doors are open, come up, come up, please! They were cheering him. He’s going to be the President of the United States and Mexico, apparently. And when he gave that speech it was tantamount to saying y’all come up here, we’re all going to have a great time because y’all are going to be legal.

Deace: People are finally doing the math on this. Now you’ve got Byron York at the Washington Examiner doing this math, you have National Review doing this math with Andrew McCarhty—

Stockman: Heritage Foundation.

Deace: Heritage Foundation. What they’re finding is, if this is your panacea to get the Hispanic vote you better try harder because Romney was going to have to win 73 percent of the Hispanic vote to win this last election and obviously this is not going to help that at all. I still don’t see what the benefit is to this for people paying taxes and obeying the law and silly me congressman I think we ought to pursue legislation that benefits the people paying taxes and obeying the law.

Stockman: Let me say this. Reagan passed comprehensive immigration reform, which was supposed to be the last time we ever needed to do it. After he passed it, California went totally Democrat. They have two Democrat senators, a Democrat legislature, a Democrat governor and you’re going to continue to see that if we pass this. There will never be another Republican president and the entire agenda of the left will become the law of the land. This is the rope that they’re hanging us and we’re going to hang ourselves with it and we’re willingly doing it because we’re intimidated by the press and intimidated by political consultants in the Republican Party who say this is what we need to do as to hang ourselves.

Steve King: Immigration Reform Hurts 'American Liberty' To Help Hispanic 'Special Interest Group'

Rep. Steve King attacked the proposed immigration reform legislation during an appearance on The Steve Deace Show last night, warning that the bill will do great damage to “American liberty” and “the underpinnings of the pillars of American exceptionalism.” He said that undocumented immigrants, whom he believes are approximately 33 million in number, and their children and grandchildren will “be taught to disrespect” the rule of law and collect tens of thousands of dollars in welfare benefits.

King maintained that Democrats are only pushing the reform bill in order to create a voting bloc “similar to that bloc that they have created out of African Americans,” describing Hispanics as a “special interest group” that will become part of the Democrats’ “powerful political base.”

It destroys the rule of law with regard to immigration and if that happens the generations of people who would follow, those beneficiaries of amnesty, would not be taught and raised to respect the rule of law, they’d be taught to disrespect it and they would be rewarded for disrespecting the law. The only claim that this 11.5 million people that’s more legitimately projected to be 33 million people, the only claim to the welfare benefits that range up into the area of $46,000 a year for typical benefits for a household, the only claim that the people have for that is that they broke American law. That is the wrong reason, it’s the wrong thing, it’s wrong economically, it’s wrong culturally, it’s wrong for the underpinnings of the pillars of American exceptionalism such as the rule of law and there’s no way that Americans benefit from this. When we ask the question, why? There is no real reason except Barack Obama and the Democrat Party [sic] for a long time have been seeking to create a monolithic voting bloc out of Hispanics that is similar to that bloc that they have created out of African Americans and they have designs to go right on down the line with each special interest group, creating a more powerful political base at the expense of our American liberty.

Radio Host Frequented By Gun Activists Calls For Shooting of Bush Family & Obama, Sexual Violence Against Hillary Clinton

Right Wing radio host Pete Santilli says he wants to shoot Hillary Clinton in the Vagina and see President Obama shot for treason.

Rand Paul Misrepresents Statements from GOP 'Whistleblower' to Attack Hillary Clinton

Upon news that Republicans altered emails from government officials to make it appear that the State Department was engaged in a cover-up of the attack in Benghazi, Sen. Rand Paul attempted to revive the non-scandal in his column for the Washington Times.

Paul writes that “[Gregory] Hicks testified that he spoke with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the night of the attack and that a special-forces unit was stopped from deploying.”

I think Mr. Obama has failed that test of power. From the cover-up in Benghazi to letting the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) target the Tea Party to First and Fourth Amendment violations in obtaining records from the press, Mr. Obama has shown disregard for the Bill of Rights and his responsibilities as commander in chief.

The handling of the tragedy in Benghazi continues to raise more questions than it produces answers. The White House’s original story, that no one was told to “stand down” on the night of the attack, was contradicted last week by Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens‘ deputy, Gregory Hicks. Mr. Hicks testified that he spoke with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the night of the attack and that a special-forces unit was stopped from deploying.

But Hicks actually testified that the order came from Special Operations Command Africa, not the State Department or anyone in the Obama administration, and that the security team in question was not organized to intervene in the attack but to secure the airport for evacuation.

PolitiFact explains:

But Hicks’ testimony and a State Department review board report show it was clear the “people that were getting killed” were already dead when the security team was ready to go.



“We determined that we needed to send a second team from Tripoli to secure the airport for the withdrawal of our personnel from Benghazi after the mortar attack,” he said.



During Hicks’ testimony last week, Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., read from a Defense Department press release explaining the security team was directed to stay in Tripoli because those in Benghazi “had shifted to evacuation.”

"We continue to believe that there was nothing this group could have done had they arrived in Benghazi, and they performed superbly in Tripoli," she read. "In fact, when the first aircraft arrived back in Tripoli, these four played a key role in receiving, treating and moving the wounded."



But it’s clear from Hicks’ testimony that four Americans "getting killed" in Benghazi were already dead when the decision was made to keep the special forces team in Tripoli. The mortar attack was over. A Defense Department drone watched overhead in Benghazi as Libyan militia members helped Americans get to the airport.

Minnesota Republican Lawmaker Warns of 'Gay Agenda in Public and Parochial Schools' and Hate Speech Laws

Following the passage of his state’s marriage equality law, Minnesota Republican state representative Glenn Gruenhagen is urging constituents to “resist the implementation of the gay agenda in public and parochial schools.” The blog Bluestem Prairie noticed Gruenhagen’s letter to the editor of the McLeod County Chronicle Wednesday, in which he claims that in Massachusetts there have already been cases where “citizens who would not succumb to politically correct speech have been charged with hate crimes.”

He cites the anti-gay group MassResistance as the source of his information and links to their website.

Of course, there are no such cases of people being “charged with hate crimes” for not using “politically correct speech.”

What is more troubling is that a state lawmaker is citing an organization whose leader Brian Camenker suggested gay marriage led to a rise in homelessness, crime, poor air quality and domestic violence, denies that gay people died in the Holocaust, likened pro-gay rights educators to “Nazi concentration camp guards” and compared gay rights efforts to Jim Crow laws.

Under this legislation, children could be chided and corrected for using gender specific terms like “mother and father” and instead will be told to use gender neutral terms like “parent and spouse” so as not to offend certain groups.

This may be difficult to believe, but as a long-term school board member, I do not make this statement lightly. I have personal experience as a board member, where state statutes were changed and eventually school curriculum and speech had to conform. I was then chided for public comments on school issues when I used terminology that was not politically correct.

In other countries and in the state of Massachusetts, where gay marriage has become the law, we have observed that citizens who would not succumb to politically correct speech have been charged with hate crimes and their parental rights infringed upon.

When signed, this bill will become the law of our state. We are a nation of laws, however we still have the right as citizens, parents and school officials to passively resist the gay agenda coming into our schools. …

During these past several months, Lutheran and Catholic organizations were key groups opposing the gay marriage bill. As your state representative, I am very thankful for their help in opposing the passage of gay marriage.

I plan to introduce legislation next session in an attempt to strengthen parental rights and school official rights to resist the implementation of the gay agenda in public and parochial schools. I will also introduce legislation to strengthen protection for our religious freedoms.
