Frank Gaffney is upset about the “fatuous” coverage of the marriage of Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner: “Weiner is married to a woman who has longstanding ties to a dangerous jihadist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Like the other conservative commentators demanding that the media report on debunked claims that Abedin is part of a Muslim Brotherhood secret agent, Gaffney is incensed “the mainstream media and many others are deliberately ignoring or papering over the fact that Ms. Abedin was brilliantly placed to run Islamist influence operations for sixteen years under the recently departed Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton.”
It may be 2013, but that doesn't mean that Satan has updated his methods of corrupting America's youth, as John Hagee explained in his Sunday sermon this week in which he warned his congregation, yet again, that if they read Harry Potter books they are "opening the gates of your mind to the Prince of Darkness and he will invade, and once he's invited in, he doesn't go out until he is cast out."
Even more dangerous, Hagee warned, is that infernal rock and roll music, which "is nothing more than Satanic cyanide" that needs to be taken outside of the home and burned:
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) accused President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of acting like “despots” over the “outrageous” Justice Department decision to challenge new voter suppression efforts in Texas.
While the Supreme Court recently gutted a key enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, DoJ retains the right to ask a federal court to impose preclearance requirements on a particular state under Section 3 of the law, which the court’s ruling did not alter.
“He’s trying to reinstitute the Voting Rights Act in Texas; if I was a Texan I would be so doggone livid and mad about that I don’t think I’d ever get over it,” Hatch told NewsMax. “It just shows how this administration ignores the law; they act like they are tinpot despots.”
After arguing that the administration’s actions to protect voting rights are part of a plan to create permanent Democratic control, he claimed that Democratic-leaning states treat people of color the “like dirt”: “Some of the worst states are blue states where they treat minorities like dirt, don’t care of them, don’t do what’s right about them and frankly a lot of this liberal stuff comes out of those states.”
It was just another day on the 700 Club, as a viewer asked Pat Robertson what to do about his seemingly haunted house: “My house is haunted. There is moaning coming from the walls, lights turn on and off, the TV changes channels on its own, the beds move, stuff floats off tables, mirrors break, and there is sometimes a creepy fog. The ghosts look like people, but have dark blue light around their feet and hands. What do I do?”
Robertson joked that “if it was me I’d burn the house down and move on,” but “assuming you can’t afford that,” he advised the viewer to get an exorcism.
After explaining that he doesn’t believe in ghosts, Robertson said that the house is likely haunted by “demonic forces and you need to get people to come and do an exorcism over that property and command those demons to leave, that’s what you do…. If you can’t do that, move.”
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer was discussing the on-going Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, which provided an opportunity for him to join the right-wing smear campaign against Weiner's wife, long-time Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, for supposedly being an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood intent on destroying America.
As a matter of fact, said Fischer, despite having no evidence whatsoever, Adedin's "stated goal" is to destroy this nation.
"Her goal in life as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood is to destroy Western Civilization," Fischer said. "She's the one that wants to be the next mayor's wife in the city of New York ... Huma Abedin, she wants to destroy Western Civilization. That is her stated purpose, that is her stated goal":
Texas Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott claims the Obama administration’s lawsuit against a redistricting plan, which a federal court unanimously ruled was designed to deliberately discriminate against Latino voters, is proof that the administration is actually discriminating against Latino Republicans.
With new legal battles heating up between the Justice Department and Texas over redistricting and voter ID laws, Abbott has taken to the Washington Times to argue that the Obama administration seeks to violate “the rights of Hispanic voters who preferred representatives” who are Republicans. “The administration’s approach reveals the Democrats fear that Republican candidates were making inroads with Hispanic voters,” Abbott writes.
While around 1.4 million Texans lack voter ID, Abbott claims that “crying ‘voter suppression’ is nothing but a cynical scare tactic designed to mobilize Democratic partisans, none of whom ever will be prevented from voting by these laws,” adding that “the Obama administration is sowing racial divide to score cheap political points.”
In redistricting, the Obama administration has aligned itself with Democratic state representatives and Democratic members of Congress who already are suing Texas. It is no surprise then that the legal position of President Obama’s attorneys seeks to improve Democratic candidates’ prospects. Of course, Mr. Obama’s attorneys conceal this partisan agenda with lofty rhetoric about minority voting rights. But it is no coincidence that every change to district lines supported by the administration benefits Democrats. Behind the empty allegations of racial discrimination lies one goal — helping Democrats in 2014.
The president’s partisan use of the Voting Rights Act actually hurts many minority voters in Texas. With the administration’s support, redistricting litigation already has unseated Texas state Reps. Jose Aliseda, Raul Torres, Aaron Pena and John Garza, as well as U.S. Rep. Quico Canseco. These representatives — all Republicans — won in 2010 in predominantly Hispanic districts. In 2011, however, the Obama administration and other partisan interest groups succeeded in getting a court to draw district lines so that only a Democrat could win these seats. As a direct result, all of these Republican Hispanic representatives lost their seats in 2012 except for Mr. Aliseda, who chose not to run for re-election. His district had been dismantled altogether at Democrats request.
The administration’s approach reveals the Democrats fear that Republican candidates were making inroads with Hispanic voters. Democrats could never “turn Texas blue” if that trend continued, so they got the courts to draw district lines that guarantee Democratic victory in predominantly Hispanic areas. What about the rights of Hispanic voters who preferred representatives such as Mr. Aliseda, you might ask? They apparently don’t matter to this administration.
Similarly, polling consistently shows that Hispanic Texans strongly support voter-ID requirements, another target of the administration’s litigious political strategy. Electoral fraud harms voters of all races, and voter ID is a simple, nondiscriminatory way to help stop it. Getting an ID is free of charge for any Texan who needs one. Voter-ID laws already have been upheld by the Supreme Court. Crying “voter suppression” is nothing but a cynical scare tactic designed to mobilize Democratic partisans, none of whom ever will be prevented from voting by these laws. The administration’s absurd claim that this common-sense fraud prevention device is actually a racist plot to prevent minorities from voting would be comical if it weren’t so depressing to see an American president stoop to that level.
After the Shelby County decision, the Voting Rights Act still works. It just no longer imposes an onerous and costly preclearance requirement that disrupts the state-federal balance of power enshrined in the Constitution. Instead of allowing the Voting Rights Act to work in a way the Constitution allows, the Obama administration is sowing racial divide to score cheap political points. The president is using the legal system as a sword to wage partisan battles rather than a shield to protect voting rights. This overreaching action undermines the Voting Rights Act and the rule of law. Texas will not tolerate it. So far, neither will the Supreme Court.
Last night, Glenn Beck co-hosted his television program remotely from Salt Lake City, Utah, a city which has become the latest victim of the progressive effort to revise American history, all because it has a street named after labor organizer and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez.
"Now you tell me what Cesar Chavez Boulevard has to do with Salt Lake City," Beck fumed, as he called on Americans to join with him by vowing "not to take it sitting down" because his movement, he believes, is right on the verge of winning.
We have no idea what he was talking about, but apparently now Beck wants his audience to start campaigns to get their city councils to start naming the streets after George Washington, Thomas Jefferson ... and Rush Limbaugh:
"They are doing it to us," Beck said. "Make sure you are ramping it up in your town and putting those boulevards and those street names [in place]":
Larry Klayman is angry at President Obama for dismissing the “phony scandals” that are distracting attention away from meaningful policy debates, charging that Obama “is not merely a disgrace, but a dangerous man whose allegiance to Islam, disdain of Jews and Christians, and favoritism toward all things black have cast him into the role of a very cheap, bigoted and hateful man.”
He warns that Obama is a “Muslim through and through” and “a Hitler-like figure, finding scapegoats such as whites, Christians and Jews to use to rally the shock troops for his black-Muslim crusade.”
Indeed, “Obama is even more of a dangerous tyrant than King George III,” Klayman argues, since at least King George III wasn’t “a racist Muslim socialist” who sought to “reduce the United States to the equivalent of a socialist, African-Muslim nation.”
“Remove him from office,” the totally-not-dramatic Klayman writes, “before all is lost.”
Plain and simple, Obama is the most despicable, criminally minded fraud to have ever occupied the Oval Office. He is not merely a disgrace, but a dangerous man whose allegiance to Islam, disdain of Jews and Christians, and favoritism toward all things black have cast him into the role of a very cheap, bigoted and hateful man. In contrast, Obama makes the felonious former President Bill Clinton look like a Boy Scout.
Second, coming on the heels of the Trayvon statement, this week also brought yet another indication that Obama is a Muslim through and through, which not coincidentally was the "faith" of his revered Kenyan father. Trying to resurrect his "brothers" of the Muslim Brotherhood who were just ousted from power by the Egyptian military, Obama suspended military aid to this largest of Middle Eastern nations, obviously to send a signal to this granddaddy of Islamic terrorist groups that he supported its return to power. A return of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt would be a blow to the Jewish state of Israel, not coincidentally also the birthplace of Jesus Christ and the rest of the Western world.
The primary aspect these two events have in common is that they show that Obama has a clear mindset to further what he perceives to be the interests of "his" people, meaning blacks and Muslims, at the expense of everyone else. He is thus a Hitler-like figure, finding scapegoats such as whites, Christians and Jews to use to rally the shock troops for his black-Muslim crusade. These words may sound harsh, but not in the context of the "fraudster in chief's" actions during his first five years in office. Coupled with his words, the nation is on its way to destruction unless this dangerous man is legally stopped in his slimy, prejudiced and hateful tracks.
And, this is why I have said on many occasions that Obama is even more of a dangerous tyrant than King George III. The king may have wanted to rape the colonies of their wealth and exert his monarchical control over their populace, but he was never a racist Muslim socialist bent on remaking our Judeo-Christian culture and roots and furthering an agenda that seeks to destroy our Anglo-American heritage. It is now clear that Obama will use whatever means are at his disposal to reduce the United States to the equivalent of a socialist, African-Muslim nation.
Time is short before this man succeeds at this mission. And, that is why the so-called phony scandals to which he refers must be used as a means to remove him from office, before all is lost.
I am doing my part through lawsuits and a citizens' grand jury in Ocala, Fla. But now is the time for others to also seriously step up to the plate, in what has become a "life and death" struggle for the heart and soul of the nation. We have seen the eyes of the enemy, and they are clearly focused on the destruction of the inspired vision of our Founding Fathers and our way of life as one nation under a Judeo-Christian God.
One of the small joys of our day is receiving the Family Research Council’s daily “Washington Update” email, which is frequently accompanied by an ambitious pun related to the day’s news. (Recent examples: “Florist Won't Back-Petal on Marriage,” “Hawaii Leis It on the Line for Marriage,” “Muffins Signal Bran New Day at Justice” and an all-time favorite, the St. Patrick’s Day-themed “Defending DOMA: Pros and Leprechauns”).
But, as we were reminded today, sometimes the FRC can take its commitment to punny-ness just a little bit too far. Here are ten of the FRC’s most truly tasteless subject line puns along with excerpts from the emails they accompanied.
The guest on "WallBuilders Live" today was Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel church in California who came on to warn the audience about SB 323, the "Youth Equality Act," which would require youth nonprofit organizations operating in the state to comply with California’s nondiscrimination laws.
That, of course, is an outrage to folks like David Barton, who warned that gay activists don't just want equality, they want to dominate and force everyone else to accept their views, which is something that Christians would never do:
Notice that this bill is pointed against quote 'discriminate against LGBT groups.' Now discriminate against now means, in California officials' views, to disagree with. So it's not discriminate against, it's if you disagree with these groups, we're going to punish you for not having a government-approved view. This is what happens when [Christians] refuse to get involved and its now going to effect home-schoolers as well.
We often say let homosexuals have the right to marry, et cetera; no, no, no, it doesn't stop with that - a little leaven leavens the whole loaf - these guys are not wanting to be equal, they're wanting to be dominant.
And that's what we've seen across Europe, that's what we've seen everywhere else but we keep thing, well, we wouldn't do that if we were in charge, we wouldn't force our views on them. Great, but you're not in charge and you're not getting involved and you're not electing people.
Sandy Rios of the American Family Association dedicated part of her radio show today to criticizing the National Education Association for its strong stance in favor of LGBT equality and gay-inclusive curricula. “I think that we can lay at the feet of the National Education Association the reason why this culture has been slouching toward Gomorrah,” Rios told her listeners. “The NEA has been for the last twenty years indoctrinating our children.”
One of her guests, a South Carolina teacher and pastor named Ira Thomas, attended the recent NEA convention in Atlanta and lamented that he is “accused of hating” because he opposes the NEA’s pro-gay “indoctrination plans.” “To me it’s like teaching people about how to use crack. It’s a dangerous game to play on,” Thomas said.
Following CBN reporter Paul Strand’s heavily slanted report where he claimed that gay rights may be “biggest threat to religious liberty in all of America’s history,” Pat Robertson went on to argue that the gay community is on a mission to “destroy the church if need be, then to destroy the military if need be, then to destroy marriage if need be, then to destroy businesses if they need be.” He said that the gay rights advocates won’t stop until “the way they perform sex acts is acceptable” in society and turn America into Ancient Rome, “where sexual morality had gone out the window.”
He asked: “If there are 100 million Christians in America, maximum two percent of the population are homosexual and one percent are lesbian, is that minority going to destroy all of the foundations of the morality of the majority?”
Robertson said that Christians may soon be imprisoned over their “loving” anti-gay stance.
“If you see somebody who is not going to go to Heaven and you really love him you want to do what it takes to get him into Heaven, if you don’t care about him you let him go to Hell,” Robertson continued. “We are a people who love and yet now your love is going to put you in jail because the people who are going to Hell feel their lifestyle—think, ‘well, we want to be affirmed.’”
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has joined two far-right groups led by White Nationalists in filing an amicus brief in a case involving gun crimes. Stockman’s brief in United States v. Abramski seeks to weaken the power of the government to prosecute cases dealing with “straw purchases” of guns and false statements made on required forms for gun purchases.
Peroutka is a board member of the white supremacist and secessionist League of the South and denounces the Union’s victory in what he calls the “War Between the States.” He even pledged to use the Institute on the Constitution to aid the League of the South and advance the cause of imposing biblical law.
Pratt’s ties to White Nationalist and anti-Semitic groups are also well documented, and he joined Peroutka at a July 4 event hosted by an anti-Semitic rock band. Pratt also fears that the Obama administration may be building a black paramilitary force that will target straight, Christian white people.
We wonder how a Republican congressman’s decision to team up with White Nationalist-linked groups will mesh with the GOP’s new minority outreach campaign….
Earlier this month, Glenn Beck hosted a three-day long Independence Day celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah which culminated with his "Man In The Moon" performance, but the gathering's other main attraction was a "museum" that he and David Barton curated featuring artifacts from their respective collections, as well as several outside pieces.
While the museum was open to the general paying public, special VIP guests received guided tours personally led by Barton and Beck.
And what sort of things did these VIP guests learn from Beck's guided tour?
That all of human history is just cycle-upon-cycle of Satan trying to wipe out God's chosen people in order to ultimately destroy God:
Brooke Goldstein of the Lawfare Project is trying to use the attention surrounding the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal to warn that his wife and Clinton aide Huma Abedin is a secret Muslim Brotherhood operative. While on Fox News, Sean Hannity and Monica Crowley eagerly agreed with Goldstein’s claim that that Huma Abedin is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda.
However, Goldstein didn’t get such a favorable response on Fox’s Red Eye, where host Greg Gutfeld and other panelists laughed at her attempt to resuscitate the discredited smear campaign against Abedin.
“Why is Weiner so un-attracted to Huma Abedin? Perhaps it’s because she is connected with Islamists who want to kill us!” Goldstein said, before alleging that Abedin “poses one of the greatest national security threats of this administration.”
Goldstein then alleged that Abedin “knows” about her husband’s sexting ways but won’t leave him because of her Muslim Brotherhood ties, or something.
The Religious Right publication Charisma today published a column by ex-gay activist Janet Boynes arguing that the devil is behind the gay community’s alleged plan “to indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society.”
She praises the American Family Association affiliate One Million Moms for their campaign against “Good Luck Charlie” for featuring a same-sex couple, warning that the gay “game plan” is to “get into our schools and change the mindset of our children” and “create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten.”
After arguing that the devil is responsible for such “gay propaganda,” Boynes writes that “One Million Moms should push for Disney and many other shows to air a show with a person that has left the life of homosexuality.”
As we sit and watch TV, all we see is the homosexual community taking over the airwaves. Why? because they are moving forward and not looking back. They have a game plan, and that plan is to get into our schools and change the mindset of our children, and in turn they, the children, will change the culture. Let me say this in plain English: The gay community wants to indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society. Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten.
As I read what those amazing One Million Moms did by calling Disney to shut down the airing of lesbian moms on the show Good Luck Charlie, I felt relieved to know we are still fighting for what is valuable. That was a bold move, and I commend them for taking a stand.
Really? Don't you see what's happening here, church? The gay community is getting its message across—that change in sexual orientation is not possible—only because they have been given airtime on many TV shows and movies, and the media has had a voice in telling us what is right and true in their eyes. On Thursday, for example, Good Morning America aired a story of a high school coach from Yonkers, N.Y., who came out to his basketball players.
Nothing has changed. The devil is still trying to deceive many today, and we as the church have taken the bait, hook, line and sinker. Eve said in Genesis 3:13, "The serpent deceived me" (NKJV). I'm not even going to discuss the repercussions of that choice and how it has affected humanity today.
The Bible clearly says in Revelation 12:9 that the devil will deceive the whole world. Anything contrary to the truth of God's Word is a lie. Are you being deceived by the gay propaganda?
One Million Moms should push for Disney and many other shows to air a show with a person that has left the life of homosexuality. When have we seen this kind of lifestyle being shown in a positive light on Lifetime movies, in secular media, on Capitol Hill, at the White House or on any other television show, for that matter?
The Christian Broadcasting Network has released more footage from the recent Religious Right summit in Iowa organized by David Lane and featuring speakers like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Cruz, who told CBN in an interview that gay rights advocates intend to dispose of the First Amendment and pass hate speech laws, won plaudits from the audience of conservative activists for his attacks on gay rights advocates and “judicial activism.”
“On marriage there is no issue in which we need to be more on our knees because the momentum is with the opponents of traditional marriage,” Cruz said. “We’re facing an assault on marriage.”
He scolded “unelected judges” who think “we know better” on marriage, and urged pastors to “to speak to your congregations and to mobilize the people, and mobilize them more than anything to pray.”
On marriage there is no issue in which we need to be more on our knees because the momentum is with the opponents of traditional marriage. We saw a decision from the US Supreme Court, a decision that some have herald, even some conservatives have herald, I think that decision was an abject demonstration of judicial activism. Five unelected judges saying we are going to set aside the policy preference of the state of California, the citizens not of some crazy right-wing state—California. The citizens of California went to vote and they voted and said in the state of California we want marriage to be the traditional union of one man and one woman, and the US Supreme Court, as a result of its decision said you have no right to define marriage in your state, we know better. We’re facing an assault on marriage. As pastors, each of you has a special responsibility and a special ability to speak to your congregations and to mobilize the people, and mobilize them more than anything to pray.
Congressman Steve King continues his tour of defiance, refusing to apologize or backtrack in any way for the comments he made earlier this week when he claimed that the vast majority of undocumented immigrants are "130-pound" drug runners with "calves the size of cantaloupes."
As part of this ongoing effort, King showed up on Bryan Fischer's radio program today where he vowed that he will never apologize "for telling the American people the truth."
King defended himself by saying he had made this same point several times in the past, but is only being attacked for it now by people who "have an amnesty agenda that they want to drive through the House of Representatives," adding that any civilization in which government leaders would attack and marginalize someone like him for speaking the truth "will not be able to sustain itself in the long run":
