Todd Starnes: Obama Would Rather See A US City Nuked 'Than Profile Someone Who Might Be A Terrorist'

Falsely suggesting that Syrian refugees are being admitted into the U.S. without being vetted, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes claimed today that the Obama administration “would rather have a nuclear bomb go off in an American city than profile someone who might be a terrorist.”

In an interview with St. Louis radio host Jamie Allman this morning, Starnes first claimed that Muslims hadn’t done enough to denounce 9/11 and the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and then absurdly claimed that the Obama administration “objects” to vetting refugees.

“I just think it’s prudent to take your time and vet these people coming into the country,” he said. “And the Obama administration objects to this, but the fact of the matter is it may be a moot point, Jamie, we just don’t know who’s been coming across our southern border and I suspect that we’ve got a lot of these folks just lurking and living among us.”

In reality, those applying for refugee resettlement in the U.S. go through a stringent vetting process that takes an average of two years to complete.

“Jamie, I honestly think that with this administration, the moral high ground, they would rather have a nuclear bomb go off in an American city than profile someone who might be a terrorist,” Starnes added. “I think they think in their minds, the moral high ground, that would be the moral high ground. It’s just really outrageous.”

Beck: America Is 'Ripe For Assassinations' ... Or Maybe Not, 'I Don't Know'

Glenn Beck dedicated his television program last night to recounting how he has supposedly accurately predicted the course of global affairs since 9/11, right down to last week's terrorist attacks in Paris. Utilizing at least six chalkboards, Beck recounted a host of predictions he has made over the years which, he claims, have all come true.

Given his amazing track record, Beck then went on to warn that 2016 is going to be a reoccurence of 1968, in which America will be plagued with social unrest and assassinations of political leaders ... or maybe it'll happen in 2017 ... or maybe it'll never happen, he doesn't know. 

"I hate even saying this," Beck said, "but I'm telling you that I have a very strong feeling that next year will be 1968 all over again. We are going to be ripe for assassinations. Massive instability is coming our way. It might be next year, it might be 24 months, it might never happen, I don't know, but we have a pretty good track record."

As usual, Beck conveniently hedged his bets so that if anything like this does happen, he can claim to have predicted it, while if it doesn't happen, he can just ignore it, as he does with all of his predictions that never came true.

Tony Perkins: Terrorists Unlikely To Strike South Because 'We Know How To Defend Ourselves'

On his “Washington Watch” radio program yesterday, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins speculated that if terrorists associated with ISIS were to attack the U.S., they would be unlikely to strike the South because “more of the citizens are armed” and “know how to defend ourselves.”

Perkins was interviewing Rep. Steve Womack, R- Ark., about a bill he has introduced to revoke the passports of U.S. citizens suspected of joining terrorist organizations, when Womack warned that it’s “plausible to believe that we could potentially have the same thing brewing in our country that obviously demonstrated, manifested itself on Friday in France.”

“I agree with you,” Perkins replied. “I do think it’s less likely to happen in the South, where more of the citizens are armed. I’m serious.”

Womack laughed in response to Perkins’ remark but clarified, “I’m not laughing to make a joke out of it, I’m just telling you, as a concealed carry permit guy myself and as somebody who represents a great district in the third district of Arkansas where there’s a lot of folks like us, it’s probably less likely that it would happen there, although if you want to make a statement there are many targets in the South that go right to the heart of who we are as Americans.”

“That’s true, but we know how to defend ourselves,” Perkins said.

Huckabee: Obama Wants to 'Protect The Reputation Of A Radical Religion' More Than The US

In an interview with Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon on his Sirius XM program this morning, Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee insisted that the Obama administration wants to “protect Muslims and the reputation of Muslims more than they want to protect the United States.”

Huckabee was addressing the reluctance of President Obama and the Democratic presidential candidates to declare that the U.S. is at war with “radical Islam,” the same linguistic strategy used by President Bush.

“So we have both Shia and Sunni radical Muslims, but this is an administration that doesn’t even want to say that they’re radical Muslims,” Huckabee said. “They just want to protect Muslims and the reputation of Muslims more than they want to protect the United States, and you cannot win a war if you don’t even identify your enemy.”

Alleging that the Democratic candidates were reluctant to use the term because “they want to be politically correct, they don’t want to offend anybody,” Huckabee said, “If you want to talk about offense, I’m offended that our government seems to want to protect the reputation of a radical religion more than it wants to protect American citizens.”

“When I go deer hunting, I’ve got to know the difference between a deer and a cow because if you don’t know your target, you’re likely to make a real mess of things,” he added. “This is a president who doesn’t know a deer from a cow, and he’s going out there and insulting Americans by making it as if there’s something wrong with us because we’re not just real excited about” bringing in refugees from the Syrian civil war.

Tom DeLay: President Obama Is A 'Coward' Who Has 'Surrendered To ISIS'

Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax Prime yesterday, where he declared that President Obama is a coward who has "surrendered to ISIS" and so Republicans need to dedicate themselves to putting pressure on Obama and the Democrats to launch a full-scale war against ISIS.

"We have a president that is feckless, that is incompetent, that has no idea what he's doing," DeLay declared, "and Congress has to say it, Congress has to stand up."

"If I was there," he continued, "I would suspend all legislation for the rest of the year .... and focus on going to war and eliminating ISIS and go to the American people in their districts and in their states, explain what's going on here, explain what has to happen, show them a president that is a coward and stand up for the people when they rise up. First place I would go is I would go to every state that has a Democrat senator and every district that has a Democrat House member and I would physically move my members into those districts and start holding town meetings and hang Obama around these Democrats and weaken their resolve to support this horrible strategy of Obama's. Then you can build a pressure cooker that might force the president to do the right thing."

Anti-Refugee Activists Call For End To All Muslim Immigration After Paris Attacks

Since the news broke that one of the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks on Paris that killed more than 120 people on Friday may have snuck into France by infiltrating the waves of refugees from Syria’s civil war, at least nine Republican governors and one Democrat have said that their states will refuse to accept Syrian refugees (something that they can’t actually do) and GOP presidential contenders including Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee have called on the president and Congress to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the country as a whole. Cruz has suggested accepting only Christian refugees from the country, while Jeb Bush has hinted at the same thing.

This is a dream come true for the anti-refugee movement in the U.S. which had already been trying to claim that Syrian refugees — who go through a long and arduous security screening process before being admitted to the U.S. — represent a threat to national security.

The leading activist focusing specifically on preventing the resettlement of refugees in the U.S., Refugee Resettlement Watch’s Ann Corcoran, wrote on her blog today that other commitments kept her from writing much today, “But, LOL!, there are so many people writing about refugees now that I can soon retire!”

Prominent anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney responded to the news of the Paris attacks by calling for “a moratorium on Muslim migration” to the U.S., circulating a post from Corcoran calling for the same.

Pamela Geller predictably went even farther, writing on her blog yesterday that President Obama “should be brought up on charges” if he allows any more Muslims into the U.S.

NO MUSLIM MIGRANTS. Obama should be brought up on charges if he moves forward and brings these murderers here. They mean to kill us.

As refugee resettlement experts explained to Politifact last month, trying to game the refugee resettlement process would not be a likely method for an ISIS terrorist trying to reach the U.S.:

The U.N. has said 10 percent, or about 400,000, of the Syrian refugees in camps need to be resettled. President Barack Obama announced that in fiscal year 2016 (through Sept. 30), the United States would accept at least 10,000 refugees from Syria.

Those 10,000 aren’t necessarily the type of people who would be ISIS operatives as Trump fears, according to Mock.

"The priorities go to torture survivors, people with serious medical conditions, children and teens on their own, and women and children at risk," Mock said. The people selected undergo screening by state agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security. The process can take years.

That doesn’t make for an efficient method of terrorizing the United States, Foundation for Defense of Democracies senior fellow Daveed Gartenstein-Ross said. While it’s a legitimate concern that there are ways of beating the screening process, he said, there would be more efficient ways for ISIS cells to reach America than what Trump is fearing.

"Instead of sitting around hoping you win the refugee lottery and then wait years, then pass the screening to get to America, it would be much easier for a terrorist group to send a person through Europe or put them onto an airplane to the United States," Gartenstein-Ross said. "If they could otherwise pass the refugee screening process, they could certainly get on an airplane."

As the libertarian Niskanen Center notes, “not one” of the millions of refugees admitted under the U.S. refugee resettlement program since 1980 “has committed an act of terrorism in the U.S.”

Pat Robertson: God Didn't Heal Cancer Victim Because Maybe She Hated Her Husband

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who asked if God heard their prayers for a friend’s wife who had cancer and then passed away. Robertson said that God may have received the viewer’s prayers but then rejected them, leading him to speculate wildly as to why God let the woman die.

“You don’t know what went on with that wife,” he said. “You don’t know what was in her heart. You don’t know what sin she had committed. You don’t know how much unbelief was there. You don’t know whether she hated her husband. You don’t know any of these things.”

“You’ve been praying and God says, ‘Okay, I’m sorry, but the answer is no,’” he added.

Glenn Beck Declares Paris Attacks To Be The 'Final Fulfillment Of The Chalkboard At Fox'

Glenn Beck reacted to last week's terrorist attacks in Paris by once again claiming that everything he has been warning about since 9/11 has now come true.

Conveniently ignoring the fact that he has been repeatedly declaring that World War III has begun since back in 2013 and that all of his previous warnings about the arrival of his predicted global chaos have always come in response to incidents and situations that have nothing to do with the current crisis, Beck is positive that this time, he's been proven right about it all of it!

The "first shots in World War III" were fired "in France on Friday," Beck stated. "It's not going to be declared by anybody to be World War III yet ... But make no mistake, you're at the beginning of a global war."

When future history book are written, Beck predicted, the Syrian refugee crisis "will be seen as a Trojan Horse invasion by the Islamists in Europe" that was aided by the United Nations and "socialists worldwide."

"What happened on Friday was a final fulfillment of the chalkboard at Fox," Beck proclaimed. "It is now finished."

"I said it to my kids this weekend, now I'll say it to you," Beck warned. "I am sorry kids, but everything I have been talking to you about since September 11 — I know that we've had signs here and there that it was beginning or that it was getting closer — but I'm sorry, kids, everything that I have seen coming, the storm has now arrived. It's time to grow up."

Pat Robertson Now Says That Pride, Not Homosexuality, Was The Sin Of Sodom

Televangelist Pat Robertson has frequently warned that victories for LGBT equality will turn America into the biblical city of Sodom and therefore bring about God’s judgment.

That made it all the more surprising when “The 700 Club” host alluded today to Ezekiel 16:49 to assert that Sodom was destroyed due to pride, not homosexuality: “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.”

“Pride, the Bible says, idleness and abundance of bread, neither were they thankful, that was the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah,” Robertson said. “He didn’t talk about homosexuality.”

We’ll keep this in mind next time Robertson says that homosexuality is inciting divine wrath.

Michael Savage Threatens To Leave America For Russia Because It's 'The Best Country Left On The Planet'

Jumping on a report that actor Robert De Niro may take Russian citizenship, Michael Savage said on his “Savage Nation” program last week that he’d consider leaving the U.S. for Russia as well in order to flee America before it turns into the Soviet Union.

“I’ve thought of it,” Savage said. “If this keeps up — imagine how crazy the world has become. The left is so fanatical, we’re becoming so much like the ex-Soviet Union. I’m thinking about which country to move to if it gets worse. So I’m saying, maybe I’ll have to go to Russia, it seems to be the best country left on the planet, run by a decent leader.”

However, Savage ultimately concluded that it would be too difficult for a man of his age to learn Russian.

Todd Starnes: Mizzou Protests Will Destroy America

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes appeared on “Washington Watch” last week to share “his analysis on exactly what’s happening on the University of Missouri campus.”

As one could imagine, neither Starnes nor the program’s host, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, were particularly sympathetic to the protests of the university’s handling of race issues, which they labeled as a threat to the survival of America.

They even questioned whether state universities should still receive public funding. “We could be funding the demise of America,” Starnes said. “We are funding these colleges and universities and they’re the ones that are espousing these fascist and socialist ideas.”

Starnes went on to say that if people don’t “wake up” and “stand up and say we’re not going to tolerate this with our tax money, then we may not have a country much long.”

Dobson: Nondiscrimination Ordinances Allow Entire Football Teams To Take Photos Of Girls Using The Toilet

James Dobson dedicated his radio program today to the dangers supposedly presented by "bathroom bills," which is a pejorative term favored by the Religious Right as it seeks to fight policies designed to allow transgender individuals to use restrooms, locker rooms and similar facilities of the gender with which they identify.  

In an effort to terrify and mobilize his audience to oppose such policies, Dobson absurdly claimed that he recently read a story about a group of football players who were allowed to enter the girls' bathroom and take photos of girls while they were using the toilet.

"It just takes my breath away," Dobson said. "I just read an example of a case where a girl was in the bathroom and the whole football team came in and took pictures, you know, selfies, if you will, over the top of her in the bathroom. I mean, have we gone absolutely nuts?"

Dobson's guest, Tim LeFever of the Capitol Resource Institute, then piped up to declare that things like this are "going to happen" more and more frequently because such incidents are "certainly one of the implications" of nondiscrimination ordinances as people with nefarious intentions figure out ways of "gaming the system."

Conservative Pundit Links Paris Attacks To Mizzou Protests: 'Dear White People: Your Days Are Numbered'

Leave it to conservative pundit and WorldNetDaily columnist Jesse Lee Peterson to link the protests over the treatment of students of color at the University of Missouri to the terrorist attacks that killed over 120 people in Paris on Friday.

In a column for WND yesterday titled “Dear White People: Your Days Are Numbered,” Peterson contends that while “Europe has been in the process of handing their continent over to Muslims … white Americans are handing over their country to black malcontents — and Muslims.”

“Somewhere along the way, whites in Europe and America have lost their connection to God and have decided to give up defending their communities and freedoms,” he writes.

“It’s time for whites in America, and in Europe, to stop the madness,” Peterson concludes. “If it isn’t stopped, your way of life – and possibly your life itself – will be stopped.”

This has been a brutal couple of weeks for those with white skin.

It started with a three-ring circus at the University of Missouri, another landmark in the slow death of white America. And it drew to a close with the actual deaths of scores of French citizens.

The University of Missouri will never be the same now.

Weak, liberal whites have created monsters in their schools. The monsters are now eating them, and threatening to eat others.

By Thursday, chaos reigned across the country as students protested their schools and called for heads to roll.

The situation will not get better until white Americans put an end to it. In fact, it will only get worse.

And with clear evidence that white Americans are standing by as their country is going down in flames, Friday evening we heard news of the Paris attacks and concert hall massacre of mostly white French by Muslim terrorists.

Somewhere along the way, whites in Europe and America have lost their connection to God and have decided to give up defending their communities and freedoms. Europe has been in the process of handing their continent over to Muslims. And white Americans are handing over their country to black malcontents – and Muslims. Friday it was reported that the first wave of Syrian immigrants had arrived in New Orleans . Where was Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to stop this? Where are the protests from outraged Americans?

If you stand up against the bullies – whether they’re radical black bullies on campuses, or Islamic bullies, they will go sit down.

But if you act with fear, they will run over you and your children.

You can’t prove anything to angry people. You just have to speak up, be honest and live your life. Telling the truth and setting a living example is the only way to change anything for the better.

The greatest civilizations in the world are being destroyed by the godless.

The godless have not been raised by decent parents. They’re looking for love in all the wrong places, and in the wrong way. And now they’re destroying the free world.

It’s time for whites in America, and in Europe, to stop the madness. If it isn’t stopped, your way of life – and possibly your life itself – will be stopped.

Extremist Congressman: God Raising Up Ted Cruz To Save America's Soul

Ted Cruz has picked up the endorsement of Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, who is not only an influential political force in the first-in-the-nation caucus state but also a prominent face of the anti-gay and anti-immigration movements.

“For almost a year now, my regular prayer has been that God would raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the soul of America,” King said in a video message, asking Iowans to “do your duty for God and country, come to caucus, and support Ted Cruz for president of the United States.”

The congressman made waves nationally when he suggested that young immigrants are mostly drug smugglers who’ve “got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” but he’s been making similar comments for years, once likening immigrants to livestock while calling for an electrified border fence and depicting immigration as a “slow-motion Holocaust” and “a slow-rolling, slow-motion terrorist attack on the United States.” He has a long record of portraying immigrants as a violent threat that will destroy the country and civilization itself.

King has also been a leader among opponents of LGBT equality, warning that same-sex marriage will usher in socialism, leave children raised in warehouses instead of families and “throw this country into an endless trauma.” The congressman has also baselessly asserted that gay rights laws have legalized man-lawnmower marriage and pedophilia.

While Cruz may be happy that King thinks that God is backing his candidacy, he shouldn’t be complacent: King previously said that a Mitt Romney win in 2012 would be a victory for God.

Linda Harvey: Obama's Support For Equality Act, Appearance In Out Magazine Are Signs Of God's Judgment

On her radio commentary this morning, Mission America's Linda Harvey declared that President Obama's support for the Equality Act and his appearance on the cover of Out magazine are signs that America is under God's judgment.

"Remember that radical homosexual bill on Congress I've been telling you about?" Harvey asked. "The so-called Equality Act? Well, our president Barack Obama has announced he is endorsing this legislation, which would make homosexual behavior and gender confusion civil rights under U.S. law, just like race or religion."

"And to make matters even worse," she continued, "he just became the first sitting U.S. president to appear on the cover of a homosexual magazine. Obama's photo is on the front of Out magazine because he was named its ally of the year for 2015. Friends, America seems to be under judgment when we have such misguided leaders."

WND Pundit: Ban Muslims From Public Office

WorldNetDaily columnist Lord Christopher Monckton suggested yesterday that in response to the Paris terrorist attacks, the U.S. should consider prohibiting Muslims from holding public office “on grounds of a grievous and life-threatening conflict of interest.”

According to Monckton, this ban will include President Obama. While the Constitution prohibits such a religious test, Monckton says that people should weigh “whether we should any long regard Islam as a religion at all.”

“For while one may tolerate another’s religion, if that ‘religion’ increasingly seems to be the wellspring of terrorism, and if that ‘religion’s’ leaders say and do nothing to deter the terrorists, and if that ‘religion’s’ adherents, such as Mr. Obama, are also sullenly silent, then perhaps, after all, it is Islam itself that should no longer be tolerated,” he wrote.

Monckton claims that Obama is trying to distract people from the problem of terrorist attacks not only because he’s a secret Muslim but also in order to push policies combatting climate change, which Monckton says is “a pretext for inflicting totalitarian control on those who would prefer to be free.”

As usual, there has been near-total silence from those Islamic mullahs who, we are told, are “moderates.” It is their silence that is leading me, among others, to wonder whether we should any longer regard Islam as a religion at all.

And that is a shame: for it was the formidable scholarship of Islam, in the Damascus and Baghdad of the 9th to the 12th centuries, that kept civilization alive while Christian Europe was in the intellectual doldrums of the Dark Ages. Also, Islam upholds some of the Christian teachings – on abortion and homosexuality, for instance – that Christian bishops nowadays seem too politically correct to defend.

However, the conclusion can no longer be avoided: Today, except perhaps in the Ahmadiyya sect, there is no such thing as moderate Islam. And even the Ahmadiyya Muslims seem not to have spoken out in condemnation of the latest atrocity perpetrated in the name of Allah.

What does the “leader” of the free world have to say about these events? Mr. Obama made the usual ritualistic noises of outrage, but at no time did he mention the inconvenient truth that the terrorism that destroyed 3,000 of his fellow citizens in New York in 2001, and that has been responsible for numerous outrages before and since, is Islamic.

Instead, Mr. Obama has said, over and over again, that global warming is a greater threat than terrorism. He began saying this in January 2008, during a campaign speech, when he asserted that the “immediate danger” from oil-funded terrorism “is eclipsed only by the long-term threat from climate change, which will lead to devastating weather patterns, terrible storms, drought, and famine.”

Why, then, does Mr. Obama state, over and over again, that non-existent global warming is a greater threat than Islamic terror? One reason is that the eco-fascists, like their predecessors in Nazi Germany, have adopted environmentalism as a pretext for inflicting totalitarian control on those who would prefer to be free.

They clambered on to the bandwagon without checking the science first. They did not care whether the small clique of fellow-extremists in academia who fabricated the global-warming scare were right. All they cared about was the opportunity to set up a global new world order, the most conspicuous feature of which is that none of its leaders will be elected.

As for Mr. Obama, who is on record as having spoken of “my Muslim faith,” he must redeem his failing “presidency” by making it quite clear that he is not a terrorist sympathizer. He is, of course, entitled to his “Muslim faith,” for your nation was born of a desire to replace the Catholic and then Protestant intolerance of Europe with a more open-minded approach to other people’s faith.

Yet a true leader has to get his priorities right. And Mr. Obama’s whining about the non-threat of global warming and his culpable silence on the fact that people who call themselves Muslims are responsible for nearly all terrorist acts around the world are no longer acceptable.

For while one may tolerate another’s religion, if that “religion” increasingly seems to be the wellspring of terrorism, and if that “religion’s” leaders say and do nothing to deter the terrorists, and if that “religion’s” adherents, such as Mr. Obama, are also sullenly silent, then perhaps, after all, it is Islam itself that should no longer be tolerated.

Perhaps Mr. Obama and others who share his Muslim faith should be debarred from holding any public office on grounds of a grievous and life-threatening conflict of interest. To be silent in the face of Islamic terror is to be a sympathizer with that terror.

Sheriff David Clarke: Obama Has Pitted ‘Whites Against Blacks’ And ‘Hispanics Against Americans’

Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County spoke last week on his radio program, which airs on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze Radio Network, about his view of President Obama’s handling of race relations in America. Clarke has not been pleased with Obama’s actions, saying that “everything this guy has touched has turned to crap, literally turned to crap.”

Clarke, who has become a right-wing star thanks to his frequent appearances on Fox News, stated that President Obama has “classic narcissistic personality disorder,” which makes him think “everything he touches turns to gold” when in fact “the opposite is true.”

“How about our relations with Israel?” Clarke asked. “He was handed a situation that was pretty good, he got involved and it turned to crap. How about his class warfare, pitting women against men? The relationship, it’s turned to crap. How about race? … He’s pitted blacks against whites, he’s pitted Hispanics against Americans. It just turns to crap. But that’s part of his M.O., you know, he’s an Alinskyite.”

Later in the show, Clarke characterized Obama’s handling of race issues as taking “course-grind sandpaper to that scar left on the soul of this country as a result of the institution of slavery and discrimination.”

Supreme Court Takes Up Major Test Of Anti-Choice Movement's Strategy

The Supreme Court announced today that it will hear Whole Women’s Health v. Cole next term. The case, which deals with abortion restrictions that Texas passed in 2013, represents a major test of the anti-choice movement’s long-term strategy of cutting off abortion access through incremental legislation rather than directly challenging the right to abortion. This comes after the court’s announcement last week that it will hear another challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage mandate, testing how far the Religious Right can stretch the meaning of religious liberty in attempting to cut off access to reproductive rights.

In the Huffington Post today, People For the American Way’s Elliot Mincberg explains what’s at stake in the Texas case:

The Texas case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole, concerns a law imposing restrictions on clinics so severe that they would reduce the number of clinics that perform abortions in the state from more than 40 a few years ago to just 10, including none at all in the 500 miles between San Antonio and the New Mexico border. The state has claimed that the limits, requiring extensive hospital-like equipment and doctors with hospital admitting privileges even for clinics that offer abortions only through oral medication, are important to protect women’s health. These claims are belied not only by the medical evidence, but also by Texas politicians’ statements, such as Governor Rick Perry’s vow to “pass laws to ensure” that abortions are “as rare as possible.”

That law clearly violates the 5-4 ruling of the Court in Casey, which upheld the basic right to choose of Roe v. Wade, and held that such laws must truly be important to protect women’s health and not impose an “undue burden” on that right. Will the Court uphold and correctly apply Casey and continue to protect reproductive rights? Given the stark divisions on the Court, the answer may well come down to the vote of Justice Anthony Kennedy, the last member of the five-person Casey majority who is still on the Court today.

This case represents the culmination of a decades-long strategy by the anti-choice movement — most notably the legal group Americans United for Life, which helped draft the Texas bill — to restrict abortion access to the point where the right to abortion exists in theory but not in practice. If the Supreme Court agrees to further weaken the protections of Roe v. Wade, it could open the door for many more onerous restrictions on abortion providers and women seeking abortions.

Savage: The Obamas Give Me 'Post-Radio Stress Disorder'

Last year, right-wing radio host Michael Savage told a veteran that he doesn’t believe in post-traumatic stress disorder and said he was “sick and tired with everyone with their complaints about PTSD.”

Which brings us to yesterday’s show, where Savage was so upset about Michelle Obama’s recent speech on girls’ education that he revealed that he had developed “post-radio stress disorder” from reporting on the first lady and the president. Savage explained that the symptoms of PRSD include eating food … and that’s about it:

We’re living in insane times, but I didn’t expect anything different. I knew what we’d get when he was put into power. And every time I get off the air every day, after every show I suffer PRSD, I suffer post-radio stress disorder, every day. It manifests itself in different ways, PRSD. For example, during my break — you think post-radio stress disorder is a joke? Ask my family. What do you think I did during this break? I ate a chicken leg from a hot chicken brought to me from a supermarket. Then I ate an entire veal parmesan from a supermarket unheated. I gave Teddy [his dog] a piece of steak from a restaurant Sunday night. We’re both happy. He’s lying under the desk, smiling. I’m sitting on top of the desk, not smiling. Because living well is the best revenge, let me tell you.

This then prompted Savage to claim that several campus demonstrations on race issues are “being orchestrated by the White House.”

Carl Gallups: Christians Could Be Jailed For Objecting To 'Homosexual Sex' Lessons In Schools

In an interview with the End Times radio program “Understanding the Times” last month, pastor Carl Gallups claimed that the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling “trampled on the First Amendment” by “rewriting” Christian doctrine and warned that the ruling could lead to the imprisonment of parents who object to school lessons on “the mechanics of homosexual sex.”

Eric Barger, who cohosts the show with Jan Markell, told Gallups that the U.S. military is training troops to think that evangelicals are terrorists, which led Gallups to think of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell.

“Absolutely,” he said, “and I’m telling you, something very illegal, unconstitutional, prophetic and a little frightening for people who don’t understand the times in which we’re living, happened June of this year with the Supreme Court gay marriage ruling. Because, in effect, here’s what they’ve done. They have created a new religious doctrine in America. In other words, the Bible says gay marriage is an abomination. The Islamic religion says gay marriage is an abomination. Judaism says homosexuality is an abomination … The U.S. Supreme Court said, ‘No, we’re rewriting that.’ And so it’s targeted at Christians because America is largely a Christian nation.”

“Basically, the Supreme Court violated, trampled the First Amendment and now says ‘You have to spit upon the word of God or we could put you in jail,'” he said.

“Not only that,” he added, “but we’re soon going to be teaching our children in school the mechanics of homosexual sex. Because they’re already teaching the mechanics of heterosexual sex, and now that the Supreme Court has said it’s legal, so as a Christian parent, if you dare to speak against that, you could be sued or put in jail.”
