Pamela Geller: If Trump Isn't Elected, 'It's Like Czechoslovakia And Hitler'

Anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller spoke today with One America News Network’s Graham Ledger about efforts to resettle refugees from the Syrian civil war, which she naturally opposes. She declared that the stakes of the presidential election are so high that if Donald Trump doesn’t win, “it’s like Czechoslovakia and Hitler.”

When Ledger asked Geller what viewers could do to help stop the refugee resettlement, Geller responded, “Well, if Donald Trump is not elected, then we’re in for some very, very dark times. I mean, it’s like Czechoslovakia and Hitler, frankly, it’s over.”

Hillary Clinton, she said, is a “puppet” of George Soros and supports “the blasphemy laws under the Sharia.”

“It has to be Trump,” she said, “this is a no-brainer, and if the media wasn’t so complicit and corrupt, it would be a cakewalk for us. But Trump is the answer.”

Ledger added: “George Soros, just to kind of tie a bow on this, they’re in favor of open borders. And in order to have open borders across the world, you have to destroy democracy, and in order to destroy democracy you have to destroy the beacon of freedom and liberty in the world, and that’s us, the United States of America.”

Kevin Swanson Warns Lady Gaga, Steven Spielberg & Mark Twain Are All Under The Control Of The Devil

Kevin Swanson, the Colorado pastor and homeschooling activist who last year hosted three GOP presidential candidates at a forum in Iowa, convened a conference in the Cincinnati area last weekend for the purpose of discussing how conservative evangelical parents can steer their children away from the pitfalls of a secular culture.

Swanson took a rather hard line on the issue, declaring at one point that Steven Spielberg and Lady Gaga, along with Charles Darwin, Aristotle, Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche, all are or have been “possessed by Satan” or “under the sway of the devil.”

Swanson reminded his audience that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,” meaning that “we’re not fundamentally up against Steven Spielberg, Lady Gaga or Charles Darwin, we’re up against their ideas”—and those ideas are of the devil.

“Now, Charles Darwin, Lady Gaga and Steven Spielberg are under the control of the Evil One,” he explained. “1 John 5:19 says the whole world is under the sway of the Evil One, under the sway of the devil, the devil has absolute control over them. Now, again, these are the presuppositions that are not taken on by those who want to dally with the world’s ideas. They don’t see that Aristotle is under the sway of the Evil One, under the absolute control of this very powerful, malignant force called the devil, and they don’t see that Steven Spielberg and Lady Gaga and Charles Darwin are under the absolute sway, the control, the force and the power of the devil himself. So therefore they absorb any of the ideas that may come their way through these means.”

He warned that parents and students must understand this before they “read these great novels written by men who were virtually possessed by the devil, some perhaps possessed by Satan himself,” including works by Twain, who “at points might have been possessed by Satan himself,” and Hawthorne, who “must have been affected by some demon.”

There was also, he said, “a lot of demonic involvement in the lives of Mark Twain, Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Nathaniel Hawthorne and others.”

Conservative Pundit: Laughter Proves Hillary Is Seriously Ill

Hillary Clinton health truthers have pointed to everything from pillows to flashlights as proof that the Democratic nominee is facing a serious health crisis.

You can now add laughter to the list of symptoms that prove that she is at death’s door.

Earlier this week, Graham Ledger of the conservative One America News Network spoke about Clinton’s health with Dr. Jane Orient of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which, despite its innocuous name, is a far-right group that champions a whole host of bizarre claims.

Ledger, wondering if the former secretary of state has brain damage or has suffered seizures, pointed to Clinton’s appearance last year before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, where she laughed at a question about whether she had spent the night of the 2012 attack alone. (The attack had ended earlier in the day.)

“Certainly, inappropriate laughter, and it’s prolonged, that can be a sign of traumatic brain injury or other neurologic problems,” Orient said.

Phyllis Schlafly Angry About Non-English Resources For Disaster Survivors

In a column today, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly criticized the Obama administration for making sure that disaster relief services, such as the ongoing efforts to help flood victims in Louisiana, do not discriminate against survivors who have limited English proficiency.

Ensuring that relief agencies have materials in languages other than English, according to Schlafly, is part of a larger plan by President Obama “to transform America by undermining our common culture and language.”

People with limited English proficiency, she said, should simply “become proficient in English.”

With only five months left in the White House, Obama is still hard at work “fundamentally transforming” our country into something much different from the nation we all grew up in. Here are recent examples of how he is determined to transform America by undermining our common culture and language.

This month’s catastrophic flooding in Louisiana is said to be America’s worst national disaster not caused by an earthquake or a hurricane. While Obama continued playing golf on the exclusive island of Martha’s Vineyard, his federal bureaucrats are making sure that the crisis won’t go to waste.

On August 16, five federal agencies issued an incredible 16-page, single-spaced “Guidance” warning relief agencies not to discriminate in the use of disaster funds. Agencies receiving funds must “post a statement of nondiscrimination” on all public notices and “should also identify a point of contact for the public to submit complaints of discrimination.”

The Guidance refers to “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin” which is prohibited by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but it doesn’t stop there. It also tries to ban discrimination on account of “limited English proficiency,” which Congress has never prohibited.

The sneaky part is the way the federal Guidance includes the phrase “limited English proficiency,” as if the language you speak is part of your “national origin.” In fact, people from every country can and do learn English, and there is no good reason for our government to conduct official business in any other language.

Don’t assume that the Obama administration is merely responding to a genuine need for services by recent immigrants who have not yet learned English. In the name of multiculturalism, the administration is actively discouraging the transition to English by immigrants and their children, and promoting other languages instead.

Tom DeLay: America On The Verge Of Death

Yesterday, former House GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay appeared on American Family Radio’s “Today’s Issues” to promote his new book, “Revive! Revolution! Rebirth!

DeLay warned that the U.S. is on the brink of destruction unless “God wants it turned around” and conservative Christians begin “getting out of their churches, hitting the streets and putting God back in the public square.”

“If we don’t turn this country around, if we don’t bring God to the center of our social order, if we don’t have a revolution for the Constitution,” he warned, “America will die.”

Trump Supporter Tells Glenn Beck That If Trump Doesn't Build A Wall, 'We're Going To Come After Him Personally'

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck asked Donald Trump supporters to call in and explain how they feel about reports that Trump is "softening" his hardline stance on illegal immigration, especially since many Trump supporters praise him for supposedly saying what he means and never backing down from his controversial positions.

Beck's first call came from "Nate in Virginia," who said that Trump is the only candidate in the last 20 years who has excited him enough to actually go out and vote because "he speaks a common tongue language" that can only be properly understood by those who can decipher the code.

That code, according to the caller, is that 80 percent of the stuff that Trump says is pure lunacy, but the core 20 percent of his message is that "he is going to fix the problem" and that is the only part that matters. 

As such, Nate said he was not worried about Trump's apparent flip-flop on immigration because that is just what he has to say in order to get elected. Provided that Trump actually follows through on his pledge to build a wall along the Southern border, he said, then "he's not going to have people like me coming after him."

But if Trump doesn't build the wall, Nate said, "he's in so much trouble, you don’t even understand the backlash of us, the ones who are so frustrated and angry and tired of all the political stuff. We're going to come after him personally. You know what I mean? We're going to get him."

Beck said that he didn't know quite what Nate meant and asked if he was talking about simply impeaching President Trump or perhaps something more violent.

"[Trump] has condoned violence in that past, hasn't he?" Nate said. "He's appealing to people who are very frustrated and angry. Their frustration and anger can only be subsided if he makes his promises true. And he has a lot on his shoulders; maybe he himself doesn't even know how much. But if he doesn't come true for us, he's going to have bigger problems, bigger problems than what you know."

"Okay," Beck said, ending the call. "Thank you for one of the spookiest phone calls I think I've ever received."

True The Vote Warns Of 'Flood Of Illegal Voters' In 2016 Election

Shortly after Donald Trump declared that if he loses the presidential election, it will probably have been “rigged,” his campaign announced that it would be recruiting poll watchers to “stop crooked Hillary from rigging this election.”

True the Vote, a group that has led the way in promoting the myth that massive voter fraud by undocumented immigrants is shifting election results, is heeding the call.

In an email to supporters yesterday, True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht, a former Texas Tea Party activist, asked for donations to train poll workers and relaunch the organization’s poll-watching app. The email linked to a video appeal in which Engelbrecht warns that a “flood of illegal voters” could “turn over the Senate, the House and thousands of down-ballot elections, with the Supreme Court as the ultimate prize.”

She warns that people registering to vote when they get coverage through the Affordable Care Act and the movement to provide drivers’ licenses to undocumented immigrants are part of the “assault on freedom” that will result in undocumented immigrants stealing elections.

In-person voter fraud, which is what voter ID laws are supposedly meant to combat, is exceedingly rare, as are cases of noncitizen immigrants casting ballots. Even those rare cases often involve legal immigrants who are confused about the rules, rather than undocumented immigrants, who could risk even harsher penalties.

The chaos that has marked this election cycle will soon culminate in a perfect storm, a storm that will mask an underlying flood of illegal voters. Obamacare has registered millions since 2014. A year ago, illegals were given drivers’ licenses in states ranging from California to Maryland. A few months ago, leftists sued in federal court asking the judge to prevent states from stopping illegal aliens who are trying to vote. And the assault on freedom has continued into this summer, when Soros-funded leftists attacked voter ID laws in courts nationwide.

Now, while the American people are screaming to stop the madness, the Republican Party has chosen to cower and zero resources have been committed to election integrity. True the Vote is preparing to stand in that gap, stand against the storm that threatens to turn over the Senate, the House and thousands of down-ballot elections, with the Supreme Court as the ultimate prize. We plan to deploy thousands of people trained to keep watch for fraud, illegal voters and hackers bent on stealing the election, but we must raise $250,000 during August to ensure implementation.

As elections expert Rick Hasen has explained, while it’s common for campaigns to deploy observers to polling places, Trump’s “incendiary” rhetoric “seems to be an invitation to go and make trouble.”

True the Vote has a history of skirting this line. The group, which like Trump has suggested that Clinton could steal the upcoming election, sends volunteers to polling places, often in minority neighborhoods, leading to some charges of intimidating voters. When True the Vote launched its poll-watching app in 2014, it uncovered little evidence of even potential fraud but did unveil one case of an “African American woman” poll worker standing in a polling place in what one user thought was an intimidating manner.

In her email to supporters yesterday, Engelbrecht claimed that the Republican National Committee is powerless to “coordinate a ballot security program because of a consent decree they signed with the federal court.” She was referring to an agreement that the RNC signed after it was caught running a “voter caging” operation in minority neighborhoods in New Jersey in the 1980s. The agreement prevents the RNC from conducting such operations targeted at minority neighborhoods, but does allow the party to conduct “normal poll watching” activities.

Trump: US Built On Judeo-Christian Values, Things 'So Different From What Our Country Used To Be'

After a recent event in Orlando in which he tried to wooChristian nationalists and anti-gay activists, Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Steve Strang, the founder of the conservative Christian magazine Charisma, which Strang released as a podcast yesterday.

Strang, who has provided Seven Mountains dominionist Lance Wallnau with a platform to repeatedly claim that Trump has been anointed by God for the presidency, ended his podcast by urging Christians to vote for Trump and similarly claiming that the candidate has been “raised up” by God. He said that Trump would be on the cover of October’s issue of Charisma, which will include a transcript of the interview.

In the interview with Strang, Trump repeated many of the talking points he has used to win over conservative evangelicals, including boasting of his vow to repeal IRS rules that prevent churches from retaining their tax-exempt status if they openly endorse or oppose candidates, talking about how he told his children to stay away from drugs and alcohol, and claiming that he would be better for Israel than President Obama.

Trump further attempted to polish his evangelical bona fides when he agreed with Strang that the U.S. was built on “Judeo-Christian values,” a loaded term coming directly after a meeting organized by an activist who argues that the U.S. was founded explicitly to advance the Christian faith.

“Before you spoke [at the Orlando meeting], they had a speaker talking about Judeo-Christian values in the founding of the nation and so forth,” Strang said. “In our secular society, a lot of people discount that. Do you believe that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles?”

“Yeah, I think it was,” Trump responded. “I think, to a large extent, when I look at football coaches being fired because they held a prayer on the field, like yesterday, I think it’s absolutely terrible, I think it’s a terrible thing. I see so many things happening that are so different from what our country used to be. So religion’s a very important part of me and it’s also, I think it’s a very important part of our country.”

When Strang asked Trump to give conservative pastors advice on how to advocate for his candidacy, Trump gave a typically vague response.

“Well, I’m going to get the job done,” he said, “I’m going to do a great job for religion and for the evangelicals. I’m going to do a great job. And that’s why we got a standing ovation from pastors, who don’t give much standing ovations because they’ve heard a lot of people speak, so that was a great honor. But I will do a great job, I’ll get the job done and I’ll get it done properly and that will be a great thing for the evangelicals.”

Earlier in the interview, Strang asked Trump whom he would “reach out to for spiritual guidance” as president.

Trump replied that he has “so many friends” within the evangelical community, and named a few of the small cohort of evangelical leaders who have been supporting his candidacy since the GOP primary, including Robert Jeffress and Paula White, a prosperity gospel televangelist who Trump said was at the Orlando event. He also mentioned evangelist Franklin Graham, who has not made a presidential endorsement.

He noted that “I really like to stay with people who have been so loyal.”

Matt Barber: 'We Shouldn't Be Surprised' That Gay People Commit Suicide Because 'The Wages Of Sin Is Death'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber asserted that gay people have a higher rate of suicide because they know in their heart that they are rebelling against God.

Pointing to a study that reportedly found that "homosexuals who 'marry' each other are almost three times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual counterparts," Barber said that "the wages of sin is death" and so it should not be a surprise that gay people eventually break under the pressure of their own sinful behavior.

"There's a biblical explanation," Barber said. "Scripture says the wages of sin is death and folks who are engaged in the homosexual lifestyle, even if they rationalize and kid themselves and enter into a pretend marriage kind of situation, something that looks like a marriage between two men or two women, they know inherently in their heart it's not marriage; it can't be because it's missing the requisite binary male-female relationship that defines marriage."

"The sin that they're engaged in, they're engaged in disordered behavior that is in violation of God's natural law, His natural order, and His moral law and His moral order," he said. "That weighs heavy on the heart that has the truths of God and the truths of His natural law and moral law written on their hearts. So they know inherently, intuitively that they are engaged in immoral, sinful behavior, notwithstanding the fact that they try to convince themselves otherwise and so we shouldn't be surprised that they finally, many of them ultimately end up breaking under the pressure of that self guilt, knowing that they're engaged in sinful behavior."

Ben Stein: 'I Am Not A Doctor' But…

Hillary Clinton health truthers have lots of “evidence” that the Democratic nominee for president is sick: a Diazepam pen held by a Secret Service agent (actually a flashlight); the seizure that wasn’t; the slip; the railing and the pillow.

Now, Newsmax host Steve Malzberg has found more proof that Clinton is gravely ill: She wore “a long coat with black pants” while addressing an event in Nantucket.

Malzberg’s guest, Ben Stein, said that he is not a doctor, but went ahead and diagnosed Clinton anyway.

“Well, I think part of that is the story is that she’s always wearing a bulletproof vest, so that may have something to do with it, but I don’t think she looks well,” he said. “When you see pictures of her face, I hate to say this, but my dear departed mother had lupus and she was taking a powerful hydrocortisone and Mrs. Clinton looks to me like she’s taking hydrocortisone. I am not a doctor but I sure pay a hell of a lot of attention to the effects of drugs and I’d like to know what meds Mrs. Clinton is taking and what she’s taking.”

Stein’s evidence?

“Wrinkles, puffiness, a flushed appearance and a kind of very slight, furry, furry look on her face, a very slight furry, not like she’s Santa Claus, but a very slight furry look on her face.”

Kevin Swanson: 'It's Amazing That God Has Not Judged America' For Gay Rights & Legal Abortion

Kevin Swanson, the Colorado pastor and homeschooling activist who last year hosted three GOP presidential candidates at a conference in Iowa, hosted an event near Cincinnati over the weekend to help families prepare their children to avoid cultural pitfalls and be prepared to enter the metaphorical Noah’s ark of Christianity. Among the speakers were Ken Ham, the Creationist activist who just completed a life-sized replica of Noah’s ark near the site of the conference, and GOP favorites David, Jason and Flip Benham.

Swanson started things off by impressing upon attendees the need to prepare their children to fend off and avoid God’s wrath by declaring that it’s “amazing that God has not judged America” already for gay rights and legal abortion.

“It’s amazing that God has not judged America in 1973,” he said, “hard to believe that God didn’t judge America in 2001 [sic] with the Lawrence v. Texas decision, it’s hard to believe that God didn’t judge America with Obergefell.”

“It is amazing that God has not brought judgment upon this world shortly after [the Obergefell decision] happened in July [sic ]of 2015 or in August of 2015 or even in September of 2015 or maybe even October,” he added.

“So be assured, my friends,” Swanson said, “judgment is coming. I have no idea when it will come. Will it be 120 years from 1900? Will it be 120 years from 1890? Will it be 120 years from 1973, Roe v. Wade, the decision to eliminate hundreds of millions of babies in America and of course all around the world, same thing has happened since the 1960s? Will it be 120 years from 2015, the day on which the most powerful court in the world ruled against God’s institution of marriage in one of the most radical, arrogant insults against Almighty God? When will God’s judgment come? I have no idea, but I will tell you, it will come.”

(It took Noah 120 years to build his ark before the Flood came, thus the 120-year delay in judgment that Swanson is suggesting.)

Five Revelations About The Culture Of Fox News From Andrea Tantaros’ Sexual Harassment Suit 

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros filed a suit yesterday against Fox News and Roger Ailes, along with numerous other defendants, accusing the conservative network of operating “like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.” The suit delves into the culture at the conservative news channel and the way it treats its employees, particularly women.

Here are five allegations raised from Tantaros’ court filings:

1.     The network’s executives ordered on-air talent not to defend anchor Megyn Kelly after she was attacked by Donald Trump:

Further, after Donald Trump attacked Megyn Kelly for allegedly treating him unfairly in an August 2015 Republican Presidential Debate, Fox News publicly backed Kelly in the dispute. However, Shine executed Ailes’s tactic of playing both sides of the fence by instructing all on-air talent that none of them should defend Kelly against Trump.

2.     Fox News has a yearly “trunk show” during which female employees are forced to dress and undress in front of other staff:

In addition, each year Fox News conducts a “trunk show” at which female on-air personalities pick out their wardrobe. Fox News’s “trunk show” requires its female employees, including Tantaros, to dress and undress in front of Fox News’s wardrobe personnel in the middle of a room without even the benefit of a curtain to act as a dressing room.

3.     Ailes, the network’s former chairman and CEO, was apparently obsessed with the sexual orientation of his employees, repeatedly and in separate meetings asking Tantaros:

“Is Greg Gutfeld gay?”;

“Is Dana [Perino] a lesbian?”

4.     Tantaros accuses former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (also a former Fox News contributor) of sexual harassment:

On or about August 18, 2015, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown (“Brown”) appeared on Outnumbered. Brown made a number of sexually inappropriate comments to Tantaros on set, including, and in a suggestive manner, that Tantaros “would be fun to go to a nightclub with.” After the show was over, Brown snuck up behind Tantaros while she was purchasing lunch and put his hands on her lower waist. She immediately pulled back, telling Brown to “stop.” Tantaros then immediately met with Shine to complain, asking him to ensure that Brown would never be booked on the show again. Shine said that he would talk to Scott. Thereafter, Shine and Scott ignored Tantaros’s complaint, and continued to book Brown on Outnumbered.

5.     Fox News, according to the suit, operates a number of sock puppet accounts it uses to attack its own talent:

At or around this same time, there was a large increase in negative social media posts about Tantaros. On information and belief, Fox News was the source of these negative comments, by posting them on its numerous “sock puppet” accounts. A “sock puppet” is a fake identity created to promote or tarnish someone through blogs and social networking sites which appear to be independent. It has been widely reported that Fox News maintains a large number of “sock puppet” accounts. On information and belief, media relations was also shopping negative stories about Tantaros, and leaking baseless and harmful information about Tantaros to discredit her and cause reputational harm.

Larry Pratt: Every Clinton Nominee Will Be 'A Hardcore, Committed Hater Of The Constitution'

Larry Pratt, the executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, was a big Ted Cruz backer in the Republican primary but said this week that he is now supporting Donald Trump because Hillary Clinton “hates the country” and “wants to destroy it” and will make sure that every judicial nominee and member of her administration is “a hardcore, committed hater of the Constitution.”

Pratt told St. Louis radio host Marc Cox yesterday that Clinton sees Australia’s strict gun laws as “her model” (Clinton once said that one aspect of Australia’s gun regulations “would be worth considering”), to which Cox replied that Second Amendment views would be Clinton’s “litmus test” for Supreme Court nominees.

Pratt lamented that Republicans have sometimes made judicial nominations and other appointments based on personal ties rather than ideology. “They don’t make that mistake on the left,” he said. “If you’re not a hardcore, committed hater of the Constitution, basically seeking to quote ‘fundamentally transform America,’ you’re not going to have any place at their table.”

He added that despite his “reservations” about Trump, the alternative is somebody who “hates the country, wants to destroy it.”

Glenn Beck And The Burden Of Being God's Watchman

Glenn Beck spent the first hour of his radio broadcast today issuing yet another dire prophetic declaration that everything he has warned about for the last 10 years is now all coming true and that only his audience has been divinely prepared to save America.

Earlier this year, Beck declared that, for ten years, God had been preparing his audience to save America by electing Ted Cruz as president, but that obviously didn't pan out. So now he is claiming that his audience has been prepared to reclaim America if Donald Trump is elected president and becomes a strongman and a dictator.

Beck doesn't want to have to issue these sorts of warnings, he said, but he has been commanded by God to do so or will otherwise bear the responsibility for the death of millions.

"I can only do what I'm supposed to do, what I feel the Lord has commanded me to do and that is tell the truth," Beck said. "He has commanded me to do my own homework. He has commanded me to never compromise on what you truly believe ... As I started to say in 2004, privately at least, there is a warning in Ezekiel that in those days there will be a watchman on the tower and at the gates. That means all of us, in our own way, are watchmen on the gates, in your own life. And if you see trouble coming, you are supposed to warn the people and, if you don't, the blood of everyone who could have heard the warning and could have done something, that blood is on your hands."

"This audience is the only hope because you are the only audience that is truly been prepared for these things at this time," he declared. "You will be our republic's last line of defense. So what do I do? People are telling me, 'At least just shut up.' I can't. I can't. You condemn me if I continue to warn, but God condemns me if I fail to warn."

Bachmann: Obama Has 'Sanctioned' Violence Against Conservatives, White People

On Sunday, ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann spoke with Breitbart News about the protests outside of a Donald Trump campaign stop in Minneapolis, claiming that the protesters acted violently toward Trump supporters.

Bachmann argued that President Obama has “sanctioned” violence, as long as it protects the “people favorable to the Obama position, politically.” She insisted that the president is sending “a signal to Donald Trump supporters: Don’t attend Donald Trump events because you could be physically assaulted.”

Bachmann linked the Obama administration’s “lawlessness” to the incident in Minneapolis, claiming that Obama has effectively condoned violence against conservatives and white people, leaving “normal” people helpless in the face of anarchy:

The people who were doing the pounding, the spitting, the physical touching, the violence, nothing happened to them, there wasn’t an arrest. And part of that is because the Justice Department now has a new program in place for these major metropolitan areas and it’s called Disparate Impact, and what they’re saying is if blacks or Latinos are being arrested in greater numbers than whites, then that is considered an obvious sign of racism. It doesn’t matter if it is more blacks or Latinos who are lawless, cops are told you can’t arrest, you can’t book more minorities than you can whites.

So the cops essentially, at this point, are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. So what’s happening is that normal, happy America, minding their own business, are the ones who are being impacted and assaulted and there is nothing happening to the lawless. So we’re no longer able to be in a situation where we just go about our lives and mind our own business, now we have to practically be our own law enforcement because President Obama has prevented law enforcement from protecting us.

What we saw, this violence perpetrated against just normal people who were no threat, this act of lawless violence, in itself is an extension of the Obama administration. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, when secretary of state, they acted and continue to act in a manner that is lawless. They flaunt the law. The president took an oath to execute the laws faithfully in the United States. Not only does President Obama not execute the laws on the books, he makes up his own laws. In other words, he’s a lawless president and Hillary Clinton has been lawless as secretary of state. And now what we’re seeing on the streets of America is that violence apparently is acceptable if you are opposing a Republican or a conservative or even racially if you’re opposing someone.

Rep. Ted Poe: Clinton Wants African Americans On 'Government Dependence' So 'She'll Get Their Vote'

Donald Trump has started what he seems to think is outreach to African American voters by delivering a speech to “inner city” voters in a mostly white suburb of Milwaukee and repeatedly asking African American voters what they “have to lose” since they have “no health care, no education, no anything.”

One person applauding Trump’s efforts is Republican Rep. Ted Poe of Texas, who told San Antonio radio host Joe Pags on Saturday that Trump will make voters of color start “actually evaluating the difference” between the two parties, while Hillary Clinton just wants “to keep people more on government dependence because then she assumes she’ll get their vote.”

When Pags asked if Trump’s is the “right tactic” for reaching out to African American voters, Poe replied that it is.

“I believe that it is,” he said. “And he is exactly correct about that because of the facts that have come out, especially the last eight years, the number of people in the United States that are more and more dependent on the federal government. So I think that it will work, I really do believe that it will work and Democrats cannot just assume that minorities will vote for the Democrat Party this year because they’re actually evaluating the difference between the two. And Hillary Clinton does want to keep people more on government dependence because then she assumes she’ll get their vote.”

“And she can control them,” Pags added, claiming that Clinton is thinking “if I can keep you dependent on me, then I’m going to say, ‘Hey, remember, I gave you the food and I gave you that Section 8 and I gave you that free bike and that free phone, don’t forget us when you get to the polling place.’”

Frank Pavone: Legal Abortion 'Like Several Atomic Bombs Have Already Gone Off On Our Own Soil'

In an interview on a Catholic radio program earlier this month, Fr. Frank Pavone, the head of Priests for Life, made the case for Donald Trump to a skeptical listener by explaining that while Trump may have the potential to kill people as president—whether it be by deliberately murdering the family members of suspected terrorists or launching a nuclear war—such a fear should be outweighed by Hillary Clinton’s support for the “raging holocaust” of abortion.

A caller to the “The Drew Mariani Show” told Pavone that he wouldn’t vote for either Clinton or Trump in the presidential election, pointing to Clinton’s support for abortion rights and Trump’s “statements about going after families of suspected terrorists or known terrorists,” explaining that while he thought “protecting infants in the womb is probably the most important thing,” there are “other lives at stake, there’s other issues that do have to deal with life.”

Pavone said that he agreed that it was an important question, and that he’d approach it by first establishing that all “lives are of equal value,” then figuring out if he was fairly interpreting a statement from a candidate or if it had been skewed by the media, and then asking if the president actually has “the power to unilaterally do that or are there people around him that are going to rein him in or put boundaries on what he can do.” (Pavone made a similar argument while defending Trump at the National Right To Life Convention last month, saying we’re not “voting for a dictator.”)

Finally, Pavone said, you must compare the cost to human life that both candidates might cause. In this case, he said (without naming candidates), while Trump has indicated that he might kill innocent family members of suspected terrorists or might be quick to drop an atomic bomb, Clinton would definitely continue the “raging holocaust” of legal abortion, which is “like several atomic bombs have already gone off on our own soil”:

And then, of course, the final element of the analysis as far as I’m concerned is, are we talking about a potential destruction of the innocent or an actual destruction of the innocent and in what numbers? Right now, we have a raging holocaust going on, and it’s not ‘maybe’ and it’s not ‘potential’ and it’s not ‘maybe we’re going to kill these families’ or ‘maybe we’re going to drop an atomic bomb.’ It’s like several atomic bombs have already gone off on our own soil when it comes to just the sheer numbers. And so, with abortion we’re talking about an actual, daily killing of the innocent as opposed to something that maybe, if we’re analyzing properly what he said, could be a potential killing of the innocent.

Wayne Allyn Root Apparently Thinks White Middle Class Males Are The Slaves In Today's Society

Yesterday, Donald Trump-worshiping sycophant Wayne Allyn Root appeared on "Newsmax Prime" to promote his new book, "Angry White Male: How the Donald Trump Phenomenon is Changing America—and What We Can All Do to Save the Middle Class."

Root said that Democrats are intent on destroying white middle class males and that men like him therefore have every right to be outraged about it, just like blacks were angry when they were the victims of slavery and widespread institutional discrimination.

"We have a right to be angry," Root said. "Certainly today they don't say black people, when they were being persecuted, when they were enslaved, when they weren't allowed to vote, when there were poll taxes, when they were treated like second class citizens, when they were being hosed by policemen in the South, do people today say they had no right to complain and be angry?"

Today, Root said, it is white middle class males who are facing this sort of relentless persecution.

Democrats are "looking to destroy us with taxes, with spending, with regulations, with IRS audits, with Obamacare, with climate change, you name it, we're being attacked from every direction," Root fumed, saying that everything that white males like him believe in has been "under massive attack in the United States of America for the last 50 years, but particularly, the last eight years of Barack Obama."

Todd Starnes: Ole Miss Dumping 'Dixie' Like What ISIS Is Doing In Iraq

Last year, when the shooting at a black church in Charleston led state governments to debate removing Confederate flags and other symbols from state property, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes decried the “full-fledged cultural cleansing of the Southern states” and compared the effort to remove Confederate flags to the destruction wreaked by ISIS.

Now Starnes is up in arms again, this time over the University of Mississippi’s decision to stop playing the Confederate anthem “Dixie” at football games, warning in a column this weekend, “It would be foolish to think the progressive academic elites have concluded their quest to eradicate Southern culture and traditions.

Starnes fumed that “progressive liberals continue to bulldoze across the Southern states burning, torching and tearing down every vestige and cultural tradition of the Deep South much like General Sherman did during the Civil War.”

In an interview with St. Louis radio host Jamie Allman about the subject today, Starnes repeated the General Sherman point. “Look, the Islamic State’s doing that in Iraq right now,” he added. “Is that what we really want in our country?”

PFAW Statement & Interview Availability on Trump Latino Outreach

In response to Donald Trump’s new efforts to court Latino voters, People For the American Way (PFAW) Director of Latinos Vote! Lizet Ocampo issued the following statement:

Trump has spent the entirety of his campaign attempting to court voters by scapegoating and stereotyping Latinos and immigrants. He’s been more welcoming to White Nationalists than he has been to Latinos.

“Not only does Trump demonize, dehumanize and spread lies about Latino communities, the policies he and the Republican Party support go directly against the priorities of our communities. From opposing comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship; to standing against raising the federal minimum wage; to enacting tax breaks for the rich and powerful instead of everyday Americans and so much more, Trump and the Republicans stand squarely against Latino voters at every turn.”

Lizet Ocampo is available for interviews on Trump and the Republican Party’s anti-immigrant, anti-Latino stances, and Trump’s new efforts to try to gain support from Latino voters. To schedule an interview, please email

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