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

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

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

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

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



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



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

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

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

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

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

Randy Thomasson Claims LGBT-Inclusive Schools Make Students 'Enemies of God'

On VCY America’s “Crosstalk” radio program yesterday, Randy Thomasson of Save California talked to host Jim Schneider about the alleged persecution of Christians at the hands of “radical” LGBT-affirming public school officials.

Thomasson said that students and families have become the victims of a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda” advanced by the state government and LGBT rights advocates who seek to eliminate free speech and religious liberties.

After claiming that sex-ed curricula ignore health risks because such information would be considered “discriminatory or adverse,” Thomasson speculated that such negligence would open up the door to “liability lawsuits” against the government from parents of children who contracted sexually transmitted diseases.

“Michelle Obama wants to make sure every child has a stalk of broccoli and an apple on their plate, because we have to look out for the well-being of that child,” Schneider said. “But when we talk about the serious health consequences when children violate the laws of nature, there is no concern with this administration.”

Thomasson expressed concern that anti-discrimination policies “trampled” on the rights of Christian students and educators, whom he believes should not be punished for being “naturally revolted” against “perverse sexuality.” He urged parents to remove their children from public schools in favor of homeschooling and biblically-approved alternatives before state laws are able to turn students “into enemies of God and enemies of their own family."

Fischer: End Muslim Immigration Because 'Islam Is Like The Ebola Virus'

In response to a video released yesterday showing Islamist extremists killing and beheading American journalist James Foley, Bryan Fischer used his radio program today to renew his call to ban all Muslim immigration to America by likening the faith to the Ebola virus.

"Islam is like the Ebola virus," Fischer said. "It's deadly. It's lethal. And all you can do with a virus like that, there's no cure for it, it can only be contained, it has to be stopped. And the way you do it is through quarantine."

Just as nations currently will not accept immigrants from places where the Ebola virus is spreading, so too should America ban Muslim immigrants, Fischer declared.

"They don't know which the citizens of that African country have the Ebola virus and which don't," he explained, "and so they say 'look, we just have to be careful, we have to protect our own people, we've got to protect the health of our own people, we cannot let anybody from your country into our country because we cannot take the chance that one of you may be a carrier of the virus.'"

The same goes for Muslims, Fischer said. "It's the people that are carriers that we have to worry about and we can't tell who has it and who doesn't, therefore we got to keep you all out of our country":

Renew America: God Will Bless America For Impeaching Obama

Yet another conservative commentator is citing divine intervention while making the case to impeach President Obama.

This time, Stephen Stone writes in BarbWire that God will bless America if Congress impeaches and removes the president. Stone, the president of the Alan Keyes-founded group Renew America, writes in a post for BarbWire today that impeachment is a “spiritual” undertaking. He predicts that the public will rally around impeachment once proceedings begin and expose Obama’s criminal “Marxist-Islamic remaking of America.” 

Only by removing Obama and throwing his closest allies such as Vice President Joe Biden in jail, Stone writes, can Americans show God that we are repenting for having elected Obama in an effort to prove that we are "worthy of His grace, Providence, and miraculous intervention.”

Once impeachment begins and the investigation succeeds in exposing Obama and his accomplices, despite their attempts to hide from public scrutiny, we will witness a sea change in people’s attitudes toward the usurper in the White House — a sweeping tsunami of public outrage that could well put such pressure on the Senate that removing Obama becomes the only “politically expedient” thing to do.



The likelihood that impeachment will decisively expose Obama’s treason, treachery, fraud, lies, deceit, and destructive actions to millions of undecided Americans for the first time — through the investigation power the Constitution gives Congress in cases of impeachment — will all but ensure that undecideds quickly become believers, pitchforks in hand, in huge numbers.



It’s fair to say most Democrats didn’t sign on to Obama’s fraudulent promises for the purpose of destroying America. Most may be liberal, but they are not blatantly un-American, and will not tolerate the kind of Marxist-Islamic remaking of America that Obama has pushed since Day One — once they learn how deliberate and treasonable Obama’s lies and deceptions have actually been.



Only by impeachment — with its considerable power of investigation — can we fully come to know the truth previously obscured by the media about the man who presumes to be our dictator. That alone is worth every effort to get that far.

After Obama is exposed, we can expect his tenure to end at the hands of incensed, deceived former supporters — not to mention those sworn to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”



Dozens of Nixon’s associates went to prison over Watergate, and many more than that are likely to do so among Obama’s inner circle (including Vice President Biden). We can anticipate that one of these subordinates with extensive knowledge, and culpability, will step forth and negotiate a deal of immunity in exchange for blowing the top off of Obama’s obstructions and lawlessness.



If we really want to see impeachment result in Obama’s removal, and thus see America have a real chance of surviving the destructive designs of the man in the White House, we need to go back to our biblical heritage, seek God’s face, and submit to His will for us individually and as a people. (See 2 Chronicles 7:14.)

Preserving our nation is as much a spiritual as a political undertaking, just as it was at the time of our founding. Like our forbears [sic], we need to humble ourselves before God, repent of our personal and collective sins, and be worthy of His grace, Providence, and miraculous intervention.

That — and do everything in our power, under our system of government, to apply the constitutional remedy of impeachment and removal to the dire situation urgently facing our republic.

Wayne Allyn Root: Barack Obama 'Brought Back' Racism To America

Conservative writer Wayne Allyn Root joined Steve Deace yesterday to talk about the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, which Root concluded are evidence that President Obama “didn’t come in to help us end the specter of racism, he brought it back.”

“It’s like we’re reliving the 1960s with Barack Obama,” he said.

Root claimed that police in Ferguson were intentionally letting looting take place in a “racist overreaction by a police department that is scared of being called racist.”

 

Allen West: 'The Democrat Party Is An Anti-Semitic Party' That's 'Aligning Itself With Islamists'

Allen West appeared on “Trunews” yesterday to once again make his case that President Obama is an “Islamist” who is helping ISIS even as he is launching airstrikes against the extremist group.

The former congressman said it’s not just Obama but the whole “Democrat [sic] Party” that is helping radical Islamists: “The Democrat Party is an anti-Semitic party, that’s why you see they’re not standing up for Israel against Hamas. The Democrat Party is aligning itself with Islamists.”

He went on to allege that Democrats are also pushing “open borders” in hopes of “tipping the balance demographically and expanding the welfare nanny state,” before lamenting that Republicans are too scared to criticized them.

Mat Staver & Samuel Rodriguez Film Ads Promoting GOPFaith.com

Last week we noted that David Barton had begun promoting GOPFaith.com, a new effort from the Republican National Committee to mobilize a hundred thousand Religious Right activists on behalf of GOP candidates that is being headed by South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly.

South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly

Now it looks like Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference's Samuel Rodriguez have also climbed on board, as both have now filmed videos promoting the effort as well.

In his video, Staver says that he is "excited about this outreach from the RNC to wake up this sleeping giant because our Judeo-Christian values of liberty and life, they're all at stake" if conservative Christians do not get involved in politics:

For his part, Rodriguez, who inexplicably still manages to maintain a reputation as a moderate, nonpartisan Christian activist, declares that he is "so excited that the Republican National Committee has launched a very powerful and vibrant outreach component. I commend and applaud the leadership of Chad Connelly and really believe that the best days are yet to come":

Pat Robertson Calls For Revolution Against Obama After Bad Visit To The Doctor's Office

“The 700 Club” aired a report today on how the push for electronic medical records is harming small medical practices, which reminded host Pat Robertson about a trip to the doctor’s office that took too long because the nurse kept asking him questions about his medical history and what drugs he takes.

Of course, this angered Robertson mightily and led him to call for a revolution against President Obama.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we need a revolution to stop these so-called progressives from destroying this country anymore, but they are getting pretty close to the tipping point, it is not a pleasant scenario,” he said. “I didn’t vote for him, maybe you didn’t vote for him, but the American people voted him into office twice and this is the result, we reap what we sow.”

Scott Lively Takes On 'Dangerous Heresy' Of Gay-Affirming Christians

Something that might bug Religious Right leaders even more than the expansion of marriage equality in the U.S. is the increasing acceptance of homosexuality and LGBT equality among Christians.

The latest salvo against Christians who challenge anti-gay interpretations of scripture comes from Scott Lively. Lively originally gained notoriety for his book "The Pink Swastika," which blamed homosexuals for the rise of Nazi Germany, but may now be more well known for his travels fanning anti-gay sentiment and encouraging the passage of anti-gay legislation in Uganda and around the globe. Earlier this month Lively lectured prominent Christian singer Vicky Beeching, who recently came out as a lesbian, for having “given in to the lie that she is a homosexual.” Lively asserted, “There’s no such thing as a gay person.”

His latest project is a brochure that is meant to take on gay-affirming Christians — even Christians who decry the Religious Right’s obsession with homosexuality but agree that it is a sin. Lively is promoting the brochure on Matt Barber’s wildly anti-gay BarbWire as “An Open Letter to Christian Leaders in America.”

The brochure includes 18 short interpretations of Bible passages that Lively says make his point that homosexuality is not just another sin, but “the harbinger of God’s wrath.”

In his “open letter” he portrays the LGBT equality movement as pursuing a long-term “blueprint for supplanting Biblical morality with sexual anarchy — in essence, the overthrow of family-centered Christian civilization.” The only remaining barrier to gay “cultural hegemony” is the Christian Church, which is why gay rights activists are trying to destroy it from within. Lively’s brochure warns:

A dangerous modern heresy called “gay theology” is infiltrating the Christian church at an alarming pace. Many believers, fearful of being called “haters,” are trivializing the threat by calling homosexuality “just another sin.”

Lively uses his open letter to promote himself as a speaker, spokesman, and workshop leader. But, he insists, “This is not a marketing campaign.”

We are not offering the brochure for sale. We simply want your help to quickly disseminate the brochure to every Christian leader in America. We will provide as many copies of this brochure as you can use at our cost of $.07 per piece plus shipping and whatever donation you feel led to offer. Alternatively, if you provide us an up-to-date list of pastors or other leaders we will send it to them ourselves (but please provide help with postage). Or if you desire to print your own supply, we will send you the artwork. If for any reason you dislike the brochure, we exhort you to take action in your own way to spread the warning and rally believers against this dangerous modern heresy called “gay theology.”

Lively’s brochure is produced by Defend the Family International, an arm of his Abiding Truth Ministries.

Robert Stacy McCain: Conservatives Must Focus On Fighting Lesbians

American Spectator blogger Robert Stacy McCain argues today that conservatives must begin to focus on what is really ailing the country: lesbians.

McCain writes about the movie “Lyle,” which is based on “Rosemary’s Baby,” this time with a lesbian woman suspecting that a demonic cult kidnapped her baby.

While he admits that he hasn’t seen “Lyle,” McCain claims that the movie is proof that lesbians are the greatest threat to American culture:

Working on “Sex Trouble,” my continuing series about radical feminism, I routinely search Twitter for relevant news and commentary. Searching for “lesbian feminist,” this headline popped up:

Lyle Director Stewart Thorndike on Making the Lesbian Version of Rosemary’s Baby and the Need for Feminist Horror

We will proceed to criticism of Ms. Thorndike’s film Lyle, but first this thought: Does anyone else notice how “lesbian” and “feminist” go together so naturally that the writer who did this interview, Kelcie Mattson, sort of took it for granted?

...

For more than four decades, so-called “mainstream” feminism has attempted to marginalize (or at least to conceal from widespread public scrutiny) the outspoken advocates of this radical ideology, despite the fact that lesbian feminism is the logical conclusion of the basic feminist theory, which views men and women as collective groups that have inherently hostile interests. However, in the Women’s Studies programs that have proliferated on American university campuses, enrolling more than 90,000 female students annually, the curriculum invariably features lesbian feminist treatises, and the professors who teach these courses are often themselves proudly “out” lesbians. Graduates of Women’s Studies programs are employed in key roles at “mainstream” feminist organizations, so that the radical agenda and the mainstream agenda have steadily merged over the years.

All of this was sort of “inside baseball” within the feminist movement until the past decade. The 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision and the 2013 Windsor v. United States decision, however, have legitimized homosexual equality, meaning that gay adulthood is now a socially acceptable and legally protected condition. From this “emerging awareness” (to quote Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision in Lawrence) it is logical to assume that one purpose of education now is to prepare young people for their lives as gay adults. Post-Windsor, you will be condemned as a homophobic hater if you disapprove of gay advocacy in public schools, and all opposition to such advocacy must be swept away in the name of “social justice.”

The general trend is unmistakable, if you pay close attention, and the teleological meaning of “equality” becomes apparent, the conclusion of the radical syllogism being implicit in its premises.

While much conservative criticism of the gay-rights movement has focused on male homosexuals, however, few conservatives noticed that lesbians actually bring greater ideological resources to the battlefields of the Culture War. They are both gay and women and, in terms of the Competitive Victimhood Derby that is modern progressivism, this places lesbians in a position to claim that they are suffering from double discrimination. Because feminism has always been a movement of the political Left, and because the Left is fanatically committed to gay rights, no woman who considers herself a feminist would dare disparage the militant lesbians who increasingly dominate the official institutions of feminism. Heterosexual women concerned about workplace harassment or abortion rights might not publicly lock arms in solidarity with lesbian radicals. The “mainstream” feminist may quietly ignore the angry dykes ranting about the heteronormative patriarchy. Yet no woman could hope to maintain her status as a feminist if she were to publicly denounce the academic radicals who relentlessly strive to teach girls that lesbianism is the feminist ideal.

Every Natural Disaster Since 1991 Has Been God's Punishment On America For Cursing Israel

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program yesterday, Gordon Klingenschmitt interviewed John McTernan of USA Prophecy about his book "As America Has Done To Israel" in which he "reveals the direct correlation between America interfering with God's prophetic plan for Israel and incredible disasters hitting America."

As McTernan explained to Klingenschmitt, just about every major natural disaster that has struck the United States since 1991 has been as a result of America trying to force Israel to give up land for peace. McTernan said that President George H.W Bush's vacation home in Maine was damaged when the US co-sponsored the Madrid Peace Conference as a sign from God and, since then, America has been hit by massive natural disasters every time this nation has tried to "pressure Israel to divide the land."

"That includes the North Ridge Earthquake," McTernan said, "It includes Hurricane Andrew, Hurricane Katrina, it includes the tremendous tornado outbreak in Joplin, Missouri and many, many, many other of these massive disasters and there is an Israeli component at the very time of the disasters."

Klingenschmitt agreed, saying these disasters are to be interpreted as "the wrath of God against America when we choose to violate Scripture" by having "cursed" Israel:

Anti-Gay Columnist Fears Future Where 'Heterosexuality Is Outlawed'

We have gotten used to anti-gay political commentators taking the satirical 1987 essay “Gay Revolutionary” as a serious manifesto and the policy platform of the sinister gay agenda.

Apparently, satire just isn’t their thing.

In a guest column for BarbWire today, Mark Judge offers a similar take on Charles Beaumont’s 1955 short story “The Crooked Man,” in which heterosexuals are closeted and opposite-sex couples have to hide in secret out of fear of harassment and stigmatization.

Of course, the BarbWire contributor completely misses the point of the story about societal mistreatment of gays and lesbians…and instead claims that the story is really about looming “gay fascism” and the totalitarian goals of the gay rights movement.

Judge’s column is frighteningly titled “When Heterosexuality Is Outlawed.”

There’s a short story that has been published about gay fascism. It depicts a dystopian world where heterosexuality has been outlawed, and those found to be straight are operated on, brainwashed, and reeducated to be gay. The story has deep implications about gay marriage, the abuse of language, and totalitarianism.



“The Crooked Man” was first rejected by Esquire magazine, which found it too controversial, and then published by Hugh Hefner, a young man from Chicago who had recently launched a magazine called Playboy. Hefner would receive a pile of angry mail for publishing Beaumont’s story.



Sixty years later, it’s not hard to imagine that some elements of “The Crooked Man” have come true, if not its entire dystopian world. There is a dose of fascism in the gay and trans rights movement, but for argument’s sake it’s important to elucidate exactly what those elements are. Two homosexuals wanting to spend their lives together and share expenses and taxes and visitation rights is not a threat to the republic. What is a threat is the manipulation of language, and a conscience-eradicating resentment that calls for large-scale coercion.



So are we headed for a “Crooked Man” future? Yes and no. It’s doubtful that the rationalization of the sexual revolution will ever get so extreme that heterosexuals will be arrested and operated on against their will.

Still, there is a movement to convince the public that “there’s no such thing as straight or gay.” According to this theory, everyone is bisexual and it’s just a matter of where you fall on the scale of attraction to male or female. If this scenario is allowed to take hold, we could in fact come to a day when it is decided that something has to be done about girl-chasing Johnny, who’s just too far on the hetero end of the Kinsey scale.

How ironic that sexual libertine Hugh Hefner will be recalled as the first one to publicly note the coming of this sexual devolution.

Heritage Foundation's Jim Carafano Blames President Obama For Rise In Anti-Immigrant Sentiment

In an appearance on One America News Network’s “The Daily Ledger” on Friday, Heritage Foundation vice president Jim Carafano claimed that President Obama’s “animosity and divisiveness” is responsible for a rise in anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States.

“Here’s the thing that’s really frustrating to me, is this is a nation of immigrants and that’s part of who we are,” Carafano told host Graham Ledger. “The president’s actions have been so divisive that if you look at the polling, Americans aren’t just worried about illegal immigrants, Americans are now increasingly becoming anti-immigrant. And they’re becoming anti-immigrant because of the animosity and divisiveness of this president, which is really, really shocking.”

Ledger, apparently unaware that he was undermining Carafano’s argument that Obama is responsible for spreading anti-immigrant views, responded by disputing the idea that the U.S. is a “nation of immigrants” and suggested that all undocumented immigrants be deported immediately.

Wayne Allyn Root: Obama Using Ferguson To Start A Race War, Declare Martial Law

Conservative pundit Wayne Allyn Root writes in a WorldNetDaily column today that President Obama waited to speak out out on the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, because he is trying to start a race war and distract voters from issues like Obamacare and immigration.

Root — who probably would have attacked Obama for fostering racial hostility had he weighed in on the situation in Ferguson earlier — writes that Obama “could have put this smoldering fire out days ago” by appearing in Ferguson since he “isn’t just any president; he’s the first black president.”

After arguing that Obama hasn’t spoken about race-related issues enough, he goes on to accuse Obama of “stirring the pot” on race because he “desperately needs to distract the people to carry out his plan to destroy this country.”

“Obama needs ‘division.’ Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war.”

“Here is the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America,” he writes. “If the American people are fighting each other, they won’t see what is really happening to the country. And think of the bonuses here. Obama could use spreading unrest to declare martial law.”

This situation could have been defused 10 days ago with an appearance by the president. Barack Obama isn’t just any president; he’s the first black president. The young man killed by police was a black male. The smoldering town is predominantly black. The angry crowds are black Americans. A few words from Obama while standing on the ground in Ferguson could have put this smoldering fire out days ago.

Obama could have stopped this fire from getting out of control at any time of his choosing. So where was Obama? Why doesn’t he want to put the fire out?

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class,” is all about the accelerating decline and destruction of America under Barack Obama. Nothing Obama does is by mistake. Everything has a purpose. Everything fits an agenda to “fundamentally change America.” Obama never lets a crisis go to waste. He uses every crisis to distract the people. Don’t look now, but Ferguson is the perfect crisis, at the perfect time. This one came on a silver platter!

What is Obama distracting us from? Pick a story, any story. America is crumbling on all fronts. Jobs. The economy. Immigration. Obamacare. Israel. Putin. ISIS. It’s all going bad. Fast.



So how do you hide and distract the masses from this unfolding multi-pronged disaster? How do you try to change landslide losses in the upcoming midterm elections? You change the game. You create strife and division. Racial division. It’s the perfect cover.

Watch tonight’s news. Count the minutes on all these stories versus Ferguson. It’s Obama’s dream come true! The perfect distraction. Heck, not only is Ferguson eating up all the air in the room, but Brian Williams and the NBC national news was coming from Ferguson last night. Can you imagine if unrest, rioting and looting spreads to cities across America? It will dominate the news for weeks, pushing all Obama’s disasters off the air.

Obama has stirred the pot for six years now. Black against white. Rich against poor. Men against women. Republicans against Democrats. Private sector against public servants. Taxpayers against the tax takers. Obama needs “division.” Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war. America is bursting at the seams. It’s all part of the agenda. It’s all part of the Cloward-Piven plan we learned as classmates at Columbia University, Class of ’83. Obama desperately needs to distract the people to carry out his plan to destroy this country. He is following the plan to a T.



Ferguson just happened to come along at the perfect time. It’s exactly what Obama needed. Ferguson is the perfect match to light the fire. Here is the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America.

If the American people are fighting each other, they won’t see what is really happening to the country. And think of the bonuses here. Obama could use spreading unrest to declare martial law. This crisis could accelerate Obama’s plans times a thousand. Cloward and Piven are smiling. Saul Alinsky is nodding. Karl Marx is applauding.

Ferguson is just the start. Obama has lit the match. America is on fire.

Tea Party Of Louisiana Falls For Hoax Article: 'Common Core Turns Students Gay'

The Tea Party of Louisiana has declared Sen. David Vitter a “turncoat of liberty” because of his support for Common Core, warning yesterday that the education standards will turn kids gay. Vitter came out in favor of Common Core while Gov. Bobby Jindal, who once supported Common Core, is now trying — so far unsuccessfully— to repeal the standards. Angry with Vitter’s remarks, the Tea Party group responed by linking to an article titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay,” apparently unaware that it was from the parody website Broken World News.

The Times-Picayune notes that Broken World News lists on its About page: “If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron.”

“Initial estimates suggest that as many as 60% of students who participated in Common Core have gone gay, many overnight. But experts fear that some are just transitioning a little slower,” the Broken World News article reads. “[T]he difficulty of the Common Core tests is the primary culprit in promoting the gay agenda, calling it ‘common knowledge that the smartest kids in school are usually the gay kids.’”

Of course, the next item listed by the Tea Party group should also be taken as a joke, as it comes from consistently discredited pseudo-historian David Barton.

Steve King Carries Phyllis Schlafly's Book Right Next To His Bible

On Saturday, Phyllis Schlafly hosted a very special 25th anniversary edition of “Eagle Forum Live,” in which she received laudatory messages from a number of fans, including Iowa Republican congressman Steve King.

King called in to congratulate Schlafly on her organization’s “wonderful success” and to tell her that he carries “in my jacket pocket every day” a copy of her 1964 book “A Choice Not An Echo”…right next to his Bible.

Schlafly returned the praise, saying, “We try to get good people like Steve King situated in Congress, where they can keep us faithful to the Constitution.”

Brigitte Gabriel: Empire State Building Lit Up For Eid Al-Fitr To Deter Terrorists

Brigitte Gabriel has a theory about why the Empire State Building was lit up in green in July in celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan: "as a security counter-measure to cause terrorists to not consider it for an attack."

David Vitter Calls For Government 'Crack Down' On Remittances

David Vitter appears to have embraced Michele Bachmann’s plan to prevent immigrants from sending money to their home countries, telling Sandy Rios in an interview yesterday that the U.S. government needs to “crack down” on remittances.

When Rios asked the Louisiana senator about remittances, which she feared could be going to “terrorists,” Vitter said he has “a proposal to put an end to that, to either end or put a heavy, heavy fine on those sorts of transfers and dedicate that money, use that money specifically for border or workplace enforcement.”

Vitter told Rios that “if we can effectively crack down on that, that would be very helpful in terms of enforcement.”

Indeed, Vitter has introduced the WIRE Act, which “requires a fee on remittances for customers who wire money to another country but cannot prove that they are in the United States legally. The fee would be used to enhance border security.”

Robert George: Marriage Equality Judges Ignore His Brilliant Arguments

Robert George, the reigning intellectual godfather of the Religious Right, complains in an interview with the Christian Post today that judges who recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry are not only ignoring the Constitution, they are ignoring his own brilliant arguments.

George, co-author of the Manhattan Declaration and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage, published a law review article and book, “What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense” with Sherif Gergis and the Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson. George is quite proud that Justice Samuel Alito cited their arguments in his dissent to the Supreme Court decision overturning part of the Defense of Marriage Act. But he cannot accept that any judge with a commitment to the Constitution could possibly disagree with him.

George broadly renounces all judges who have ruled in favor of marriage equality as engaging in a “pure ideological power play.” He acknowledges that marriage equality rulings have come from judges nominated by both Republicans and Democrats, but portrays them all as “liberal judges who don’t like traditional morality and the traditional understanding of marriage and want to overturn it.”

“So they’re abusing their offices, they’re usurping the authority of the elected representatives of the people, and sometimes the people themselves acting through referendums and initiative, to impose their own vision, their own preferences, their own political policy preferences on the American people. It’s not right and it’s unconstitutional.”

George is incensed that judges are applying the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to same-sex couples, because he says the authors of that mid-19th Century amendment were not thinking about marriage equality.

“It’s just an offense against constitutionalism, against the rule of law, against the idea that the people rule themselves in a republican form of government, to seize on a provision like the Equal Protection Clause and to overturn the laws of marriage.”

But most of all, George cannot seem to accept that an ideologically diverse set of judges, in dozens of opinions, could have considered and rejected his arguments.

“It seems to me that the courts, if they’re going to strike down the marriage laws in the name of the 14th amendment, do have an obligation to at least engage the argument that we presented, but so far they haven’t. And I know the reason why they haven’t. The reason why they haven’t… is that they don’t have an answer for the argument.”

That is ridiculous. But don’t take my word for it. I ran Robert George’s claims by Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights and a major player in marriage equality advocacy. Here’s what he said:

Judges across the country have considered the arguments put forward by Professor George and others—that marriage is essentially tied to heterosexual procreation and to the alleged “sexual complementarity” of men and women—and have overwhelmingly concluded that they are not persuasive. In fact, most of those courts have held that such arguments are so tenuous and illogical that they fail even the lowest level of constitutional scrutiny.

 

Linda Harvey Warns Gay Christians And Ex-Ex-Gays They're 'Thumbing Your Nose In The Face Of God' ​

Mission America's Linda Harvey was a guest on the AFA's "Today's Issues" broadcast this morning where the discussion turned to her concerns about the growing acceptance of the idea that people can be Christian and gay, as demonstrated by the recent announcement from British singer Vickey Beeching.

"I shudder for them," Harvey said whenever she reads about Christians who identify as gay as well as "ex-gay" Christians who renounce "ex-gay" therapy.

"We have to stop giving homosexuality special sin status," she warned, as if "that struggle is somehow different than the sin struggles of a lot of people for a lot of things and ultimately we come down on the side of what does God what me to do."

Too many people, Harvey said, are starting to believe that "homosexuality is fine" and, in doing so, they are "basically thumbing your nose in the face of God and that is not a good position to be in":
