Did President Obama and George Soros plot to murder 300 million Americans by dropping nuclear bombs? Yes! That is, according to right-wing activist Jim Garrow, who now claims to be a former intelligence officer. Erik Rush kicked off his radio show on Tuesday by reading from a Garrow article about how Obama planned to detonate nuclear weapons throughout the US until three heroes in the military stopped him:
Now, Rush and Garrow say that Obama had plans to nuke Charleston, South Carolina, and other cities throughout the US.
To distract from Benghazi?
No! To let George Soros get even richer by betting against the US dollar:
Garrow also claims that “Bath House Barry” — after attempting to destroy the United States— will blackmail every politician, military leader and police officer in America to get himself a third term.
After 90 percent of the population has been eliminated, the only people left in the country will be the elites, including Obama and Valerie Jarrett, who will live in luxury bunkers.
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) today claimed that changing Senate rules to allow a simple majority of the US Senate to vote on judicial nominees appointed by the President is a shameful act that is “scary and dictatorial for our country.”
As Steve Benen noted, the supposedly dictatorial rule brings things back to “the way the Senate worked for about 200 years, largely without incident.”
In fact, Vitter supported the same rules change back in 2005, saying yes-or-no votes on judicial nominees fulfill “our constitutional duty to give advice and consent when a president nominates individuals to the bench.”
Mississippi’s Chris McDaniel isn’t the only Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who has allied with neo-Confederate activists. Warren Throckmorton reports today that Bill Flynn, a radio talk show host seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Democrat Kay Hagan in North Carolina, is a close partner of the Institute on the Constitution’s David Whitney and has taught courses through the Institute. Whitney wrote on the group’s website last week:
Our Institute On The Constituion [sic] Host Bill Flynn in Triad region of North Carolina announced his candidacy for the United States Senate race this past Sunday. Bill hosts a morning radio show on WEGO (980 AM). Bill has not only taught our U.S. Constitution course he was my co-host on the Constitutional Cruise, All Aboard America this past March. Bill is a good friend and patriot.
Whitney is the chaplain of the Maryland chapter of the League of the South, a neo-confederate hate group that promotes white nationalism.
Whitney’s bio notes that he also serves as “the Chaplain of the Southern National Congress where he is also the Chairman of the Maryland State Delegation to the Congress.” The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Southern National Congress as “a neo-Confederate group focused exclusively on advancing a new secession through political means.” Two GOP lawmakers in Tennessee were recently slated to appear at a Southern National Congress event.
The head of the Institute On The Constitution is Michael Peroutka, aLeague of the South board member. Peroutka has denounced the Union victory in the Civil War, attacked civil rights laws, demanded the prosecution of women who have abortions and warned that nondiscrimination legislation would force people to be gay.
“You may also tell them that I am proud to be a member of League of the South,” Peroutka said during his campaign for president in 2004. “I look forward to receiving the support not only from guys with Confederate flags in their trucks, but also those with the Southern Cross in their heart.”
But don’t think this GOP candidate’s close relationship with the Institute On The Constitution will trouble all of his fellow Republicans, as McDaniels in Mississippi continued to win support from right-wing groups after his own neo-Confederate links became public.

WND columnist and occasional Fox News commentator Erik Rush thinks President Obama is basically Damien from “The Omen.” On his radio show Tuesday, Rush argued that just like Damien Thorn, who is the Antichrist in “The Omen” series, Obama has a mysterious background and participates in “actual demonic or Satanic activity.”
Rush cites a Moral Matters blog post: “Demonic Obama: America’s Omen Child.”
Some of you (who are older) may remember the past popular movie, “The Omen” Its subject focus was an adopted boy born under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, (over a series of maddening events) the adoptive father is finally persuaded that “Damien” is demonic and evil. He attempts to rid the world of this demonic personage scourge, but is shot and killed in the process. The boy ends up being adopted (again) by the US Ambassador to Great Britain. The final shot of the movie concludes with “Damien slowly turning to give the camera a diabolical smile.”
Although no analogy is perfect, America’s (aka) “Obama” can be somewhat compared to “The Omen’s,” Damien. Obama’s birth background is shrouded in secrecy. Everything about Obama smacks of a negative (devilish) nature. He, like Damien, is an evil scourge of deceit and death to American lives who surround him. The most recent evidence of that scourge, is the Obamacare debacle, which involves multiple millions of American lives.
Aka, Obama, is an American (socialist / communist) Muslim / Marxist patsy. No one person since the 1900′s has achieved as much success altering this country’s political landscape as aka, Barack Hussein Obama. Granted, Supreme Court decisions such as Roe V. Wade and forced busing did its political correctness damage. Also, uprooting First Amendment religious expression from the public school system and neutering local school boards, have been part and parcel of dismantling traditional, patriotic and Constitutional America, in favor of introducing the false gods of political correctness, secularism and multiculturalism.
It is no surprise (those) who surrounds Obama, to carry out his criminally evil destruction of traditional, patriotic and Constitutional America.
Those of you reading the aforementioned, may think that this author proposes, a far stretch. That, position has been the propagandist online “conspiracy theorist” assertion of the online ridiculing, Obamabots. Their deceptive argument, is that aka Obama appeared on the American scene, because he was a fresh face in the political arena. Up until the present, they had been successful in touting aka, Obama, as a well-spoken, family man and “Christian,” who was privileged to be America’s first black president. Of course, those informed, well know that this Obama public packaging, is riddled with propaganda lies, as well as Obama’s ID fraud documents. Reality has it, that aka, Obama was the best shot fired by the socialist mindset to destroy America. What could not be achieved by individuals such as Elizabeth Duke, and her Weather Underground comrades, had to be accomplished by their noxious radical political offspring.
There is no way that aka, Obama could have been elected the first time around as US president, had he and his cabal (support) marketed him for what he is now truly revealed to the American people. It was imperative that aka, Obama, lie through his teeth with his deceptive “hope and change” promises. He was the “perfect” candidate for the communist cabal. Anyone who opposed him was (then) labelled a racist. His lifestyle lies duped Americans, who, only desired for themselves and their posterity the best material success possible. Their craving for material success blinded them to the spiritual reality of aka Obama’s depraved human nature. Hence, Obama was first (reportedly) elected by a majority of the “Christian” vote who conveniently overlooked Obama’s Illinois senator support for Infanticide. Such fools they were; and, some still are.
WorldNetDaily’s Jack Cashill believes that the allegations of domestic violence against George Zimmerman are part of a big liberal media conspiracy, even though one of the claims occurred before the Trayvon Martin trial. In another WND story defending Zimmerman in the face of new accusations of abuse, Cashill claimed Zimmerman’s estranged wife and “his latest ‘victim,’ girlfriend Samantha Scheibe,” concocted their claims to garner media attention and “betrayed” Zimmerman by going to the police after he threatened them.
While Cashill thinks this is all the media’s fault, the Associated Press notes in 2005 “Zimmerman’s former fiancee filed for a restraining order against him, alleging domestic violence,” and in the same year “Zimmerman was arrested and accused of resisting an officer with violence.”
But maybe the media went back in time as part of the anti-Zimmerman conspiracy!
Between April 2012 and July 2013, Zimmerman’s life fell apart. He showed up at the trial dead-eyed, grossly overweight, and financially and emotionally bankrupt.
The local NAACP, with which he had worked on a civil rights case a year earlier, had betrayed him. The state of Florida had sacrificed him to the mob.
His president denied him. The media had rendered the mid-Florida ether so poisonous he could scarcely leave the house. His wife no longer loved him and was eager to tell the world about it.
Zimmerman’s acquittal settled nothing. The death threats amplified. The attorney general continued to hound him despite full clearance by the FBI more than a year prior. And the media cried “Injustice!”
“I still see sadness in his eyes,” said his brother Robert soon after the acquittal. “He was definitely not the same person I had seen a few days before the incident.”
In the last two years, Zimmerman has experienced more betrayal on more levels than most of us will in a lifetime.
Now, it appears that his latest “victim,” girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, was soliciting national media interviews weeks before their well-publicized dust-up.
Regardless of the circumstances, each misstep Zimmerman has made post-trial has left the media giddy. They seem to think it vindicates their utterly subversive rush to judgment.
The fact is that the Zimmerman they now happily trash is the Zimmerman they helped create. Whatever happens going forward, the blood is on their hands.
After waging an unprecedented campaign of obstructionism against President Obama’s nominees, Republicans are now crying crocodile tears over a rules change that would end the filibuster on certain judicial nominees.
NBC News points out that Republicans are not blocking judicial nominees over “concerns about ideology or qualifications, but over the president’s ability to appoint ANYONE to these vacancies.” This unprecedented blockade leaves Democrats with few options, as dozens of nominees are left unable to receive a simple confirmation vote.
It’s even harder to be sympathetic to Senate Republicans when you remember that just a few years ago, many of the very same Republicans who are today filibustering President Obama’s nominees willy-nilly were vowing that they would never, ever filibuster judicial nominees. Some even declared that judicial filibusters were unconstitutional and un-American.
But that was before there was a Democrat in the White House.
We take a look back at some of the Senate’s most strident opponents of filibustering judicial nominees, turned master obstructers.
1. Mitch McConnell (KY)
“Any President’s judicial nominees should receive careful consideration. But after that debate, they deserve a simple up-or-down vote” (5/19/05).
“Let's get back to the way the Senate operated for over 200 years, up or down votes on the president's nominee, no matter who the president is, no matter who's in control of the Senate” (5/22/05).
2. John Cornyn (TX)
“[F]ilibusters of judicial nominations are uniquely offensive to our nation’s constitutional design” (6/4/03).
“[M]embers of this distinguished body have long and consistently obeyed an unwritten rule not to block the confirmation of judicial nominees by filibuster. But, this Senate tradition, this unwritten rule has now been broken and it is crucial that we find a way to ensure the rule won’t be broken in the future” (6/5/03).
3. Lamar Alexander (TN)
“If there is a Democratic President and I am in this body, and if he nominates a judge, I will never vote to deny a vote on that judge” (3/11/03).
“I would never filibuster any President's judicial nominee. Period” (6/9/05).
4. John McCain (AZ)
“I’ve always believed that [judicial nominees deserve yes-or-no votes]. There has to be extraordinary circumstances to vote against them. Elections have consequences” (6/18/13).
5. Chuck Grassley (IA)
“It would be a real constitutional crisis if we up the confirmation of judges from 51 to 60” (2/11/03).
“[W]e can’t find anywhere in the Constitution that says a supermajority is needed for confirmation” (5/8/05).
6. Saxby Chambliss (GA)
“I believe [filibustering judicial nominees] is in violation of the Constitution” (4/13/05).
7. Lindsey Graham (SC)
“I think filibustering judges will destroy the judiciary over time. I think it’s unconstitutional” (5/23/05).
8. Johnny Isakson (GA)
“I will vote to support a vote, up or down, on every nominee. Understanding that, were I in the minority party and the issues reversed, I would take exactly the same position because this document, our Constitution, does not equivocate” (5/19/05).
9. James Inhofe (OK)
“This outrageous grab for power by the Senate minority is wrong and contrary to our oath to support and defend the Constitution” (3/11/03).
10. Mike Crapo (ID)
“[T]he Constitution requires the Senate to hold up-or-down votes on all nominees” (5/25/05).
11 . Richard Shelby (AL)
“Why not allow the President to do his job of selecting judicial nominees and let us do our job in confirming or denying them? Principles of fairness call for it and the Constitution requires it” (11/12/03).
12. Orrin Hatch (UT)*
Filibustering judicial nominees is “unfair, dangerous, partisan, and unconstitutional” (1/12/05).
*Hatch claims he still opposes filibusters of judicial nominees and often votes “present” instead of “no” on cloture votes. But as Drew noted: “Because ending a filibuster requires 60 ‘yes’ votes, voting ‘present’ is identical to voting ‘no.’ Hatch’s decision to vote ‘present’ is an affirmative decision to continue the filibuster.”
Just as Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn was signing the marriage equality bill into law, right-wing Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the Roman Catholic diocese of Springfield performed an exorcism over the state to cast out what he calls the Satanic forces behind same-sex marriage.
He told worshipers that the anti-gay exorcism was to show that “the church loves homosexual persons and looks upon them with compassion.”
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Before a mostly full cathedral, the head of the capital city’s Roman Catholic flock looked both to the heavens and to Gov. Pat Quinn’s bill-signing ceremony for same-sex marriage Wednesday and uttered three words in Latin: “I exorcise you.”
With that, Bishop Thomas John Paprocki staged an unusual — and in Illinois, unprecedented — exorcism that asked God to “deliver us from evil” of a Quinn-led change in state law that will permit gay and lesbian couples to wed in Illinois despite the Catholic Church’s objections.
“The church loves homosexual persons and looks upon them with compassion,” he said.
After that introduction, Paprocki read the rite of exorcism in Latin as his voice echoed through the cavernous and ornate Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception church a few blocks from the state Capitol, where the legislation passed earlier this month.
“I exorcise you, every unclean spirit, every power of darkness, every incursion of the infernal enemy, every diabolical legion, cohort, and faction, in the name and power of our Lord Jesus Christ,” Paprocki said. “Be uprooted and put to flight from the Church of God from souls created in the image of God and redeemed by the precious blood of the divine lamb.
“Dare no more, oh cunning serpent, to deceive the human race, to persecute the church of God, to shake the chosen of God and sift them like wheat,” he continued.
In an unusual use of public services, the exorcism included two armed Springfield police officers stationed inside the church vestibule where parishioners entered from the street. At one point during the service, one of the officers strode to the front of the church, though his purpose was unclear. There were no disruptions during the hourlong event.
“Be gone Satan, father of lies, enemy of human salvation,” Paprocki said later, as he began the conclusion of the exorcism. “Give way to Christ, in whom you found no trace of your works. Give way to the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic church, which Christ himself won by his blood.”
Even though the millions of people that Larry Klayman confidently predicted would attend his anti-Obama gathering yesterday never showed up, at least one speaker thought the event, which attracted well under one hundred people, would have historical significance.
Addressing the rally — which called for a coup to oust President Obama and a “Second American Revolution” — former GOP congressman Bob Barr demanded the House of Representatives consider impeaching the president. Barr, who played a major role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is running for Congress again and has called for investigations into whether Obama should also face impeachment.
After calling Obama a “scoundrel,” Barr said that the poorly attended rally would be remembered throughout US history as the day the campaign to remove Obama from office was started: “Be it remembered that it started here today, November 19, 2013, just as it did on November 5, 1997, that Americans for generations to come will look back and say, ‘yes, good and faithful servants, you did your duty.’ We thank you and we will carry that torch forever into the future.”
Naturally, his speech ended with a Tea Party activist shouting: “Except Barack Hussein Obama is not the president, he’s a fraud; kick the bum out!”
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is teaming up with an Islamophobic fringe group, the Florida-based Citizens For National Security (CFNS), for a Capitol Hill briefing today at which they are planning to accuse the Council on American-Islamic Relations of “advancing its agenda of radical Islam” and backing a campaign of “extortion, intimidation and subversion.”
Republican members of Congress regularly demonize CAIR: One former representative even called the organization a “terrorist organization.” CFNS previously collaborated with then-congressman Allen West.
Either Wolf failed to do his due diligence before working with CFNS or simply doesn’t mind their record, as CFNS is a bastion of anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.
For example, CFNS chairman William Saxton believes that the Muslim Brotherhood has captured public schools in the US and is training students to become Islamic extremists:
“It’s a form of jihad. It’s like stealth jihad,” Saxton, who was quoted in the Fox News story, tells OneNewsNow.
“It’s not blowing up buildings and killing people, and being overtly terroristic,” says Saxton. “They’re terrorizing our kids in other ways, getting into their heads when they’re in middle and high school.”
This latest controversy is not new in Florida. The website at Citizens for National Security is heavily devoted to the topic, including a report of the ongoing textbook issue in Florida; a 10-minute instructional video devoted to the topic; and a “Teacher’s Guide” to correcting “Islamic bias.”
Saxton calls the Islamic-biased textbooks a “national issue” that’s been ongoing for some time.
“But it hasn’t really gotten a lot of media attention and a lot of traction amongst parents and grandparents of the kids, whose hearts and minds are being invaded by Islamists,” he says.
Saxton and CFNS frequently (and without basis) allege pro-Islam bias in textbooks; one Florida reporter described Saxton as fixated on a fear that history textbooks are “turning any distracted school kid into a raging jihadist.”
Another CFNS leader, Peter Leitner, has said the supposed Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy in the US is so complex that it’s “kind of like looking at a plate of spaghetti.” “You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to understand there really are conspiracies in the world,” he added.
CFNS claims it has identified thousands of members of “a multifaceted Fifth Column movement within our borders” that is “destroying the United States as it currently stands,” and is urging members to help them track and “identify ‘Islamic’ businesses, social and religious organizations, schools, etc. throughout North America.”
That’s right, it wants to create a database of every single Muslim-run business, school and organization in America.
Apparently, no group — no matter how paranoid and bigoted — is too extreme for today’s GOP to associate with.
See the CFNS press release hailing Wolf’s involvement below:
One of the speakers at Larry Klayman’s rally launching the Second American Revolution was Belinda Bee, a coordinator of 2 Million Bikers to DC. The group initially came together in protest of a 9-11 event called Million American March Against Fear (which some dubbed the Million Muslim March). At the time the biker group was denied a permit to protest, which Bee told Fox News was part of a “political agenda.” In the end, thousands of bikers did roll through Washington that day. At Klayman’s rally, Bee expressed contempt for President Obama – she referred to him as “whatever it is in office over there” – and for the federal government. “We are homeland security. We are our own government. The government does not tell us what to do. We’re supposed to tell them.”
By teaming up with Klayman and his call for Americans to overthrow the current government and start over, the biker group seems to have expanded its vision far beyond an annual 9-11 protest. Bee’s remarks were heavily focused on America’s relationship with God, and she seemed to call for abandoning every constitutional amendment after the first ten:
Our mission statement starts off with: We at 2 Million Bikers to DC do believe in God, Country, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights – as written. That means there should not be change. We don’t care about all of those Bill of Rights that came after the original. We want to go back to our Founding Fathers’ views and beliefs. We are one nation under God, and without God, we are not America. I’m gonna tell you right now, the first thing that I hear somebody talk about is ‘I have freedom from religion.’ No sir that’s not what it says, it says freedom of religion. Do not preach to me about this not being a God country. It was founded on God. They came over here and left to come here to be able to have the freedom to be a Christian, and to have the God that we have, that brought this country together, that this country was created after.
Bee may want to think through her position: getting rid of all those later amendments and returning to the vision of the founders would not only make slavery legal and abolish women’s right to vote, it would also allow President Obama to run for a third term.
Bee also targeted the supposed threat of Sharia law and churches that accept “perversion” – presumably homosexuality.
You know what, y’all? I want to explain something. This is no longer about Democrat. This is no longer about Republican. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to enslave us. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to push their Sharia law on us. Let me tell you something. [audience: “Christian blood in this earth!”] That’s it. We are God’s people and if we don’t get our own churches to stand up and quit submitting and talking about, it’s ok for us to be different. Perversion is perversion and per the Bible it is not acceptable in God’s eyes. And we’ve got to quit letting others tell us it’s ok. It’s not. … And who are we? We are God fearing Americans. We are homeland security, and we’re taking our country back.
Bee and a colleague said the group is launching political organizations in every state, will mount a major campaign in 2014, and is preparing to launch a social networking site that will be based outside the United States and therefore beyond the prying eyes of the NSA.
Last year, the Religious Right group Movieguide was hysterical about the supposed dangers of The Hunger Games, fearing that the book and film series promote homosexuality and glorify dictators like Adolf Hitler.
At The Awakening 2012, Movieguide head Ted Beahr repeatedly attacked The Hunger Games, blasting parents who brought their children to see the series’ first film for “corrupting your children” with “death and humanism and evil.” Beahr also linked The Hunger Games to promiscuous sex and abortion.
But today, Movieguide announced that the second installment in the movie trilogy, Catching Fire, “has a strong moral worldview” and even posted an interview with stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson discussing the film’s “moral lessons.”
Betsy McCaughey, who has built a career around disseminating misinformation about the health care reform law — even launching the “death panels” smear — joined Pat Robertson on the 700 Club today, where she was inaccurately labeled as a “health policy expert.”
McCaughey agreed with Robertson when he warned that “people will die” as a result of the Affordabe Care Act. “Some people may even die,” she added.
The televangelist, in turn, was awestruck by the “amazing” McCaughey, who he said “knows what she is talking about.” Co-host Wendy Griffith agreed, saying, “She was amazing, that was the best interview I’ve heard on Obamacare.”
Last night on PoliticsNation, Rev. Al Sharpton highlighted Larry Klayman’s rally at the White House, which was billed as an attempt to overthrow President Obama.
Sharpton featured Right Wing Watch footage of the event, including rants from Klayman, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, birther sheriff Richard Mack and a George Washington impersonator, with speaker after speaker calling not only for the House to impeach Obama but also for a second American Revolution.
Sharpton noted that Ted Cruz, who joined Klayman at an event last month at which Klayman called for an uprising against the president, has also been floating impeachment rhetoric.
“Ted Cruz has flirted with these fringe elements all the way through,” MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe told Sharpton.
The GOP’s shift to the far-right fringe — led in part by Cruz — has gone so far that the party is now refusing to even let the Senate vote on President Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees.
Sharpton added that Republicans “are trying to nullify the fact” that Obama won re-election by refusing to let the president fill empty seats in the executive branch and on the courts . “We have never seen anything like this where you are just nullifying the powers of the president to nominate people to the courts, people to the administration, this is unprecedented,” Sharpton said.
Operation Rescue took a critical role in the campaign to pass a municipal 20-week abortion ban with nationwide implications in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which was defeated yesterday by a ten-point margin. Now, the extremist anti-choice group says it is looking “forward to another try” at banning later-term abortions in the city.
Operation Rescue spokeswoman Cheryl Sullenger told LifeSiteNews that the group will continue its efforts to enact the Albuquerque ban. She even tried to explain away the measure’s decisive defeat by arguing that voters were confused by the ballot language:
“Pro-life supporters may have suffered a political loss, but we are far from defeated. We’ll be back,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue, who was in Albuquerque for the vote. “It is clear that the people are uncomfortable with late-term abortions and would like to see them end. We learned a lot from this campaign, and we look forward to another try that will better reflect the true feeling of the voters on this subject."
Priests for Life founder Fr. Frank Pavone said pro-life activists in the city "should not feel discouraged" by the defeat of the measure. "The fact is, of course, that children have in fact been saved through this effort, simply because we have raised the issue of fetal pain, which does not even cross the minds of many abortionists," he said.
“We understand that some supporters of the ordinance actually voted against it because they thought they were voting against abortion. That is an issue that can be easily corrected next time around,” said Sullenger. “Now the local activists in Albuquerque have been seasoned and things just might turn out differently if we can get another bite of this apple.”
But according to Operation Rescue, the pro-life campaign to protect unborn babies after twenty weeks from abortion succeeded in focusing the attention of the world on the matter of late-term abortions and created a template for activists in other communities to use to affect change in abortion laws in their communities, rather than relying on Washington D.C.
“I am so very proud of the work done by Albuquerque activists, especially Bud and Tara Shaver, who poured three years of their lives into exposing abuses at the largest late-term abortion abortion clinic in the nation,” said Sullenger, who worked with the Shavers for a year at Operation Rescue Headquarters in Wichita, Kansas. “They are the best and it was my honor to work with them on this campaign. We can only expect more exciting things in the future from them as their work to end abortion in New Mexico continues.”
As we noted yesterday, the entire Religious Right movement is in the process of freaking out over the fact that President Obama read a version of The Gettysburg Address that did not include the phrase "under God." The simple fact that Obama was asked to read that specific version by documentary filmmaker Ken Burns does not, according to the Right, in any way absolve him of this grave sin, with Liberty Counsel fuming that "he has certainly failed to acknowledge God and Biblical values throughout his presidency" and Gary Bauer declaring that "God is not amused."
Most furious of all is Bryan Fischer who insists that Obama deliberately read the version that did not include "under God" because he is a "Christophobic bigot."
Obama as "deliberately insulted the faith of 300 million Americans," Fischer said. "There's no way this was not deliberate and intentional. So, to me, this is just more evidence of President Obama's anti-Christian bigotry. He is a Christophobic bigot; he has an intolerance, he has a dislike, he has an animus for Christianity":
