Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, joined a conference call of anti-abortion activists hosted by the Susan B. Anthony List last night to assure them that he would continue to hold the line and refuse to hold a Judiciary Committee hearing on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.
Also joining the call were Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana and Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, who delivered an opening prayer.
Grassley told the activists that when someone asked him for an update on the nomination last week, he said that “an update would suggest that something has changed” and that he still intends to block any nominee until the next president takes office.
He said that preventing “another liberal” from joining the Supreme Court was necessary to keep “even the reasonable restrictions on abortion that have been enacted into law through the democratic process” from being “swept away.”
Grassley cited a recent National Right to Life poll which he said found that “about 80 percent of Americans don’t believe that abortions should be available after the first trimester.” (It was more complicated than that.)
“But we know that justices who embrace the view that the Constitution is a living document don’t share that view that you and I share,” he said. “The American people, through their elected representatives, should be making these policy decisions, not unelected judges. These are life-and-death issues that we’re fighting for. They show just how important this fight over who’s going to fill Scalia’s seat is.”
In response to a question from SBA List president Marjorie Dannefelser, Grassley suggested that news reports characterizing Garland as moderate are a misleading ploy by the media (one that, if he was correct, he himself and some of his Republican colleagues would be in on).
When Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were nominated, he said, “always in these headlines at the time they were nominated, that adjective was the word ‘moderate,’ just like Garland. Well, we know how those four have turned out. So don’t believe what you read in the press about people’s basic philosophy, because they got it all wrong and probably intentionally all wrong.”
When Dannenfelser asked Grassley to respond to the argument that the Senate is neglecting its job by refusing to even consider Garland’s nomination, Grassley repeated his claim that it would actually be a waste of taxpayer money to give Garland a hearing.
“Well, we could have a hearing, we aren’t going to have a hearing, but let’s just suppose we could have a hearing,” he said. “And I know 52 people, at least 52 in the Senate, aren’t going to approve it. So you have a hearing and you spend a lot of taxpayers’ money gearing up for it, you spend a lot of time of members, a lot of research that has to be done by staff, and then it ain’t going to go anyplace.”
“It’s like getting dressed up for the prom but you don’t get to go,” Dannenfelser said.
Right-wing pundits have been warning for years about the possibility of the government engineering false-flag events designed to justify martial law and door-to-door gun confiscation. Now, those fears have been brought to the silver screen with “AmeriGEDDON,” a new film by Mike Norris, son of conservative action star Chuck Norris.
“AmeriGEDDON,” according to promotional materials, presents a “dire warning of a wake up [sic] call of what might be our future when a globalist terrorist organization aligned with the United Nations disables the United States power grid and institutes Martial Law.”
Judging from its trailer, the movie cobbles together a wide array of current right-wing fears, showing what would happen if the U.S. government, in collaboration with the United Nations, launched a false-flag nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack to destroy the country’s energy system.
Since most Americans haven’t been wise enough to stockpile weapons and survival food, the movie shows, the government would finally be able to impose martial law under the guise of restoring order. “A strong America is the only thing standing in the way,” says a villainous member of the global elite. “The country only needs a little chaos … The vanity of nationalism will quickly fade. These are but the birth pangs of a New World Order.”
Executive producer Gary Heavin writes on the film’s blog that a “shadow government” that worships Satan is using President Obama as a “puppet” to further its interests, warning that “anti-American policies” like “the open border, the import of un-vetted Syrians, the decimation of our armed forces and the financial bankrupting of our country can best be explained by understanding the true intent of the globalists running our country.”
“I wrote this script almost two years ago,” he explained. “Everything is in place for this evil and vile plan to be initiated. Please support this movie so that we can wake people up. Perhaps some will prepare.”
Elsewhere on the blog, an unnamed writer hails Donald Trump as a modern-day William Wallace who can save America, while decrying Hillary Clinton as “a one-woman crime wave who has a trail of deaths that would make Longshanks proud” and who is determined “to rape and pillage our country.” “Let’s expose these bastards and take our country back!”
Find more information about “AmeriGEDDON” in its the About page:
AMERIGEDDON, coming to theaters nationwide May 13, 2016, has been described as “the movie the establishment doesn’t want you to see.” Showing what happens when a not-so-future U.S. government conspires with the United Nations to stage an attack on the energy grid, AMERIGEDDON depicts a country ruled by martial law in which citizens are stripped of their constitutional rights and their guns. A group of patriots fight back and rescue the country from slipping into irreversible chaos.
AMERIGEDDON’s release in an election year is not coincidental. The film illustrates a dystopian future all patriots must guard against and is a call to action to preserve the Second Amendment and stop executive rule by fiat. Director Mike Norris, son of Chuck Norris, asks for like-minded Americans to support the film.
“The fact that a recent poll showed a majority of Americans are enraged with the federal government points to a frenzy of unrest with the dictatorial way in which our country has been run,” said Norris. “My family has long been involved in protecting the rights of Americans. We are concerned about the future and and [sic] see this film as a call to action. We urge people to join us in theaters and show Hollywood and politicians that true patriots will fight for their rights and want to see their values represented on-screen.”
A collaboration between Norris and entrepreneur and writer Gary Heavin, AMERIGEDDON seizes on fact-based threats and asks the ultimate question, “What happens when government turns on the people it’s supposed to protect?”
Executive Producer Gary Heavin believes the film’s message warning is timely. “We made a movie that is fun to watch but it is based in reality. In AMERIGEDDON, survivors of an EMP attack on the United States must live in a state of martial law led by the United Nations. American soldiers must decide whom they serve, second amendment rights are curtailed and food, water and survival become our primary concerns—unfortunately, these are all likely scenarios resulting from a very real threat,” said Heavin. “I believe if we can entertain while we inform, more people will wake up; and if we hope to restore our freedom we must share the truth with as many people as possible.”
Co-written by Norris and Heavin, the film features Marshall Teague (THE ROCK), Annalynn McCord (“Dallas”, “90210”), Dina Meyer (“Starship Troopers”), Spencer Neville (“Days of Our Lives”), Mike Norris (“Walker, Texas Ranger”), Diane Ladd (JOY) and India Eisley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager”).
On the latest episode of his "Foundations of Freedom" series, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton repeated his claim that the concept of adolescence is entirely unbiblical.
Joined by his "WallBuilders Live" co-host Rick Green, Barton asserted that "adolescence is a term that never existed in the Bible because there was never a time when you were not to be a man or a woman."
"That's why David was just a teen, maybe a pre-teen, when he slew the lion and the bear and Goliath," he stated. "King Josiah was 8 years old when he started to reign. Samuel, they say he may have been somewhere between 4 and 12 when the Lord spoke to him and called him to his ministry there with Eli. Jesus was 12 years old when he was in the temple confounding the doctors of the law."
"In the Hebrew culture," Barton continued, "when you were 13 years old, you were a man. You went from being a boy to being a man. When you turned 13, no longer were your parents responsible for you because you're a man, you answer for your own decisions, you make your own decisions."
In an effort to bolster his argument, Barton later went on to repeat his false claim that the Pony Express was staffed with young orphans who rode hundreds of miles a day alone across the country.
Rafael Cruz told Pratt that he was “so grateful” for GOA’s work, before launching into a discussion of how President Obama’s attempts to “take our guns away” and the “tremendous religious persecution” of Christians and Jews in America is all part of a plan to impose a murderous communist dictatorship.
Pratt, discussing the Batista and Castro regimes in Cruz’s native Cuba, mused that “arguably it could have made a difference” in Cuba “had people been able to defend themselves and had there been the militia tradition that we still sort of have in the United States.”
Cruz responded that the issue of gun rights is “critical” right now in the U.S., especially given the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“That means if we get one more liberal justice with the same mind, we could all lose our right to keep and bear arms,” he said. “And I’ll tell you what, look at history, every dictator that has taken away the guns from the population have then used those guns to kill the population by the millions. Stalin did it, Hitler did it, Mao did it, Pol Pot did it, Castro did it, they’ve all done it. And Obama has been trying for the last seven years to take our guns away!”
Later in the interview, Cruz alleged that there is “tremendous religious persecution in America,” specifically against Christians and Jews, which he says is all part of an effort to destroy God and impose communism.
“You know, Larry, if we look at America,” he said, “there is tremendous religious persecution in America, more specifically, persecution against Christians and Jews in America. Well, we’ve got to realize that that is not the objective, that is only the means. You see, communism, socialism, Marxism — we can’t get caught up in semantics, it’s all the same — it requires for government to become your god. And in order for government to become your god, the must destroy the concept of God, and that’s what’s behind this attack on religion.”
The mutual admiration between Pratt and the Cruz family was evident during the hour-long interview.
“Thank you for standing in the gap, my brother,” Cruz told Pratt. “I know that you have been very instrumental in protecting that fundamental right for us.”
“Well, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Sen. Ted Cruz on more than one occasion,” Pratt replied.
This prompted Cruz to proudly bring up his son’s efforts to stop gun legislation in the wake of the Newtown school massacre. In particular, he said he was proud of the “leadership” his son his son showed in the infamous condescending lecture he delivered to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., at a committee hearing, which prompted Feinstein to tell Cruz, “I am not a sixth grader.”
Cruz told listeners to Google the exchange “if they want to get a laugh,” assuring them that they would “get a laugh for sure.”
“You know, she does have a point,” Pratt responded. “If he even implied that she was a sixth grader, it would have been insulting to a sixth grader, so I’m glad he’s not guilty of that.”
Yesterday on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson said he was “simply appalled” by the negative reaction to North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law, claiming that the law is “perfectly reasonable” and that it was passed because “we don’t want men going into women’s bathrooms, we don’t want predators going out where little girls are, we don’t want voyeurs having free access to the women’s locker rooms during games when they’re changing clothes.”
The televangelist contended – without any basis in fact or reality – that while there are some people who truly are transgender, many people identifying as transgender are frauds.
“People like that are relatively rare,” Robertson said. “So much of this other stuff is put up, it’s put on and it’s just a fraud. And it’s one more opportunity for the left to demonstrate against some aggrievement they claim to have that doesn’t exist. This is a phony, phony, phony cause to get involved in. ‘Well, I’ve got to look after the transgenders.’ This is nonsense.”
Glenn Beck dedicated his television show last night to laying out the timeline of the controversy over Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state, which, not surprisingly, he concluded was criminal and ought to result in jail time.
After hauling out multiple chalkboards — and repeatedly insinuating that Clinton's fainting episode and concussion in 2012 was part of some cover-up to allow her to avoid having to testify about Benghazi — Beck concluded his show by saying that it'll require "God's help" to ensure that Clinton goes to jail.
"This is criminal activity," Beck declared. "Will anyone have the guts to actually pursue this, bring it to trial and, if she is guilty, send her to jail? Only with God's help."
This evening, representatives of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim groups, will hold a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., to condemn the refusal of GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his congressional staff to meet with Muslim constituents during today's second National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill.
Some 330 Muslim delegates from 28 states are meeting with a third of the House of Representatives and almost half of the Senate.
Earlier today, 14 Texas Muslim delegates to the National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill tried to meet with either Sen. Cruz or a member of his congressional staff, but were told no one would meet with them. The delegates had tried to arrange a meeting for several weeks prior to today's event.
National Muslim Advocacy Day delegates are promoting a legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice, and will outline the domestic priorities of the American Muslim community, including:
• Support for House and Senate resolutions recognizing and condemning Islamophobia.
• Support legislation that enables individuals to build a credit history without taking on credit debt.
• Support legislation that promotes greater access to fresh fruit, vegetables and other healthful whole foods in impoverished areas.
• Address American Muslim community concerns regarding the oversight, management and approach of federal Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs.
Earlier this month, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would have required teachers to warn parents if they were planning on teaching any books including “sexually explicit content” and then allow parents to opt out of lessons that they found too explicit. The bill stemmed from a campaign waged by one mother against the Pulitzer Prize winning Toni Morrison novel “Beloved,” which also figured heavily in the legislative debate over the bill.
A few weeks ago, Gawker published a remarkable email exchange between one English teacher who opposed the bill and Republican state Sen. Dick Black, who accused her of defending “moral sewage.”
I was surprised by your personal advocacy of the book “Beloved.” That book is so vile - - so profoundly filthy - - that when a Senator rose on the Senate Floor and began reading a single passage, several other Senators leapt to their feet to interrupt the reading. Susan Schaar, the Senate Clerk, quickly had embarrassed Senate Officials rush the teenage Senate Pages from the Senate Floor in order to protect them from exposure to this moral sewage.
After she noted that Morrison’s novel reflects the “atrocious and vile” reality of slavery in the U.S., Black responded:
I want teachers who won’t teach such vile things to our students. Slavery was a terrible stain on this nation but to teach it does not mean you have to expose children to smut. The idea that you would oppose allowing parents the opportunity to be better informed about what their child is reading is appalling and arrogant. You do not know better than the parents.
In an interview with conservative radio host Andrew Wilkow on Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz agreed with Wilkow when he said that there is “link between public education and bad civics,” namely the failure to agree with Cruz’s “constitutional conservatism.”
“You know what’s amazing about constitutional conservatism,” Wilkow said, “is it seems like so many are lost on it, not because they aren’t intelligent enough to understand it, many people are too busy to follow politics the way those of us in the political media and running for president where you are. It seems like the more the federal government gets involved in education, the further away from an understanding of the Constitution we get. And do you see that problem, do you see a link between public education and bad civics?”
“Absolutely,” Cruz responded, “and I would note that the Constitution is a way to unite all of us, to bring us together across divisive issues.”
The Texas Republican then repeated his presidential campaign promises to dismantle the Common Core educational standards and abolish the Department of Education.
WorldNetDaily columnist Patrice Lewis is very upset about new efforts designed to break down gender barriers and defend transgender youth in schools, warning readers about “the constant government obsession with what’s inside the underpants of our nation’s children.”
Encouraging girls and boys to play with toys or pursue academic subjects typically associated with the opposite gender, she writes, turns children into androgynous beings. Even worse, she claims, a girl is now “urged to let herself be used by as many randy boys as she can accommodate (since, after all, Planned Murderhood stands on the sideline, eager to get rid of any ‘issues’ that result).”
Measures to protect gender-nonconforming youth at school, according to Lewis, prove that “the government is getting into the underpants of our children” and “seems veritably obsessed with our children’s genitals.”
Once this androgynous generation grows up, she writes, then there will be no one to defend the country when it is “flooded with a primitive, warrior people who aren’t interested in androgyny … but would welcome coming into an androgynous population. Why? Because in a place where feeeeelings overcome logic and rational thought, nothing can prevent primitive warriors from killing androgynous men, and raping and subjugating androgynous women.”
I’ve lived on this planet for 53 years, and I don’t believe I’ve ever witnessed anything like what I’m seeing today: namely, the constant government obsession with what’s inside the underpants of our nation’s children.
Progressives – and by extension the government, since the government is now dominated by liberals – has this peculiar, disturbing interest in the mythical fluidity of gender and seems veritably obsessed with our children’s genitals. Boys can no longer be boys. They can’t be rough and tumble; they can’t like cars and planes and guns; they are considered evil if they scuffle and fight.
And girls – well, don’t get me started. A little girl can never want to be a housewife (possibly the most loathed profession in the country, with the arguable exception of IRS employees). She must want to be a firefighter, or a lawyer, or a doctor, or an engineer, or a soldier. (Well, maybe not a soldier. Today’s social justice warriors frown on anyone being a soldier.) She is urged to “empower” herself at a young age by “exploring” her sexuality. Rather than treating her body as something special, she is urged to let herself be used by as many randy boys as she can accommodate (since, after all, Planned Murderhood stands on the sideline, eager to get rid of any “issues” that result).
Bottom line, your son or daughter can be encouraged to adopt another gender at school – using the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex, assuming another name, wearing different clothing – and the parents will not be told.
Once again, the government is getting into the underpants of our children. I don’t know about you, but I find this creepy to the point of sinister. I’ll say it again: The government seems veritably obsessed with our children’s genitals.
Progressives do not want boys to be boys or girls to be girls. They want androgyny, where boys and girls are both the same in their interests, tastes, sexual exploits, mannerisms, chosen careers, physical abilities and any other standard you can think of.
Our government is actively encouraging children to be uncomfortable with their biological gender. If they’re not being led down the primrose path of “fluidity,” they’re actively discouraged from acting like normal boys or girls. Needless to say, this influences their ability to assume traditional biological roles. Men will no longer feel the urge to protect and defend, either women or our nation. Women will no longer feel the urge to nurture and protect, either children or home and hearth.
I don’t know why this is so trendy, but I’ll leave you with yet another creepy, eerie thought: Europe, and to a lesser extent America, is being flooded with a primitive, warrior people who aren’t interested in androgyny … but would welcome coming into an androgynous population.
Why? Because in a place where feeeeelings overcome logic and rational thought, nothing can prevent primitive warriors from killing androgynous men, and raping and subjugating androgynous women.
As weandothers have noted, the Judicial Crisis Network, the primary outside group backing the Senate GOP’s blockade of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, is funded almost entirely by a dark-money group connected to a single family of conservative donors.
On Friday, Open Secrets uncovered that the same dark-money network funding JCN is behind another group that is working to oppose Merrick Garland’s nomination: the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT).
Open Secrets reports that FACT, which styles itself as a right-wing alternative to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), receives all of its funding through Donor’s Trust, a donor-advised fund that acts as a “pass-through vessel” for conservative funders, making the source of contributions all but impossible to trace. But Open Secrets found evidence linking FACT to the Corkery family, who are behind a number of conservative groups including JCN. JCN and FACT share a treasurer, Neil Corkery, and FACT has the same front address as a number of Corkery-linked groups.
The executive director of FACT and the sole paid employee listed on its most recent tax filing is Matt Whitaker, a former U.S. Attorney from Iowa who we here at Right Wing Watch remember from his unsuccessful run for his home state’s Republican Senate nomination in 2014 (it ultimately went to now-Sen. Joni Ernst). When asked at a debate what criteria he would use to determine whether to support or attempt to block President Obama’s federal judicial nominees, Whitaker said that he would ask if nominees are “people of faith” and “have a biblical view of justice.”
“As long as they have that worldview, then they’ll be a good judge,” he said. “And if they have a secular worldview, where this is all we have here on earth, then I’m going to be very concerned about how they judge.”
One right-leaning group has weighed in more quietly: The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) has demanded Harvard University release records having to do with Garland’s role in the debate in the early 1970s over whether to allow ROTC recruiters on that campus. In late March, FACT’s executive director, Matthew Whitaker, was quoted saying that “Americans have a right to know about Garland’s views of the military.”
Turns out JCN and FACT have something in common, beyond a penchant for keeping the names of their donors secret: Neil Corkery, who is treasurer of the judicial group and also the treasurer and a member of the board of directors at FACT, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Its funding — $600,000 in 2014, according to the only tax return it has filed to date — comes entirely from a conservative donor-advised fund called DonorsTrust, which means it could come from anywhere. DonorsTrust is a pass-through vessel that manages the charitable contributions of wealthy individuals and foundations to organizations that are “dedicated to the ideals of limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise,” according to its website, while allowing the donors to remain anonymous. Charles Koch is among the many conservatives who have filtered money through DonorsTrust.
In other words, an organization “dedicated to promoting accountability, ethics, and transparency” gets 100 percent of its funds from a group that exists mainly as a vehicle for donors to elude transparency.
Meanwhile, Corkery adds FACT to a long list of nondisclosing nonprofits at which he holds, or has held, a key position, often treasurer, and which often have overlapping slates of directors or officers. For instance, at two other groups where Corkery is treasurer, the Judicial Education Project and Catholic Voices, a close family ally by the name of Dan Casey is president and director, respectively. Casey is also the secretary of JCN. At the Sudan Relief Fund, Corkery is president, Casey is treasurer, and Ann Corkery, Neil’s wife, is a director.
Ann Corkery is also president of the Wellspring Committee, from which JCN receives substantial funding, including more than $6.6 million in 2014; Kathleen Corkery, the couple’s daughter, is on Wellspring’s board of directors, and its secretary-treasurer is Casey’s son. Neil Corkery draws salaries from several of the groups where he’s an office; Ann is paid by Wellspring. (Venn diagram in the works.)
Many of the groups list the same Georgetown address as their office, with different suite numbers. In reality, the address is that of a UPS store, and the suite numbers are post boxes. FACT’s listed address, in downtown Washington, D.C., has no markings; it appears to be an address that is cited by more than one organization without actually being physically used by any of them, with a receptionist who answers the phone with the names of various groups depending on which line is called.
While speaking with Alex Jones last week, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes said that his militia group is prepared to fight the supposed alliance between liberals, Black Lives Matter activists, anarchists, gangs, drug cartels and jihadists determined “to destroy western civilization.”
Rhodes boasted that his extremist group is “starting student chapters on college campuses across the country,” while Jones warned that college student bodies today are dominated by violent Maoists bent on killing their adversaries.
The Oath Keepers leader had a warning for any student who tried to burn the American flag: “You’re going to get stomped. That’s what’s going to happen to them. I know a lot of veterans, the first time they see some radical leftist trampling on a flag or burning a flag, they’re going to kick their ass. I know you can say it’s free speech, but the veteran doesn’t care about that. In his mind, it’s not free speech, that’s not protected speech, it’s incitement to violence so he’s going to go ahead and use it.”
“When someone gets in your face and wants to use violence, like that one commissar who was screaming and screeching for ‘muscle,’ ‘Bring some muscle over here, I need muscle,’ people like that, we have no sympathy for, so when she gets what’s coming to her and those like her, well that’s just the way it goes,” Rhodes continued. “When someone does defend themselves and they get stomped, of course they’ll screech and call them ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’ and ‘brownshirts’ but they brought it on themselves so I just have no sympathy for them.”
Rhodes then said that European leaders are inviting “jihadists” to set up “up a future Tet Offensive, Tet-style offensive in Europe and the same thing is being done to this country, so if we just sit back, they’ll win because they’ll just cause the chaos they’ll use as creative destruction.”
He said Oath Keepers’ “civil defense units” will “fight in the street” against “the jihadists and the cartels and the gangs and these radical Black Lives Matter people and the black anarchists, the black flag anarchists; they are all just force multipliers and proxies, just as we saw during the Cold War with communism.”
Jones announced that “we have a mole inside the Democrats” who has reported that party operatives are buying InfoWars shirts to wear while committing a “fourth generation false flag” and that Muslim refugees in America and Europe are “preparing a secret super assault, a jihadist, western Tet Offensive.”
According to Rhodes, liberals “support radical Islamists” because “they want to destroy western civilization” and want to “use them as a force multiplier as part of their creative destruction and then later control them. Of course they’re wrong, they’ll wind up with their heads chopped off at the end, if they prevail.” Jones further explained that the communist leaders “are planning a hot takeover” and are going to “conscript people that aren’t domesticated as their slaves” and hope that the radical Islamists commit terrorist attacks so that they can “bring in martial law after.”
Rhodes said this was the “creative destruction” he has warned about, suggesting that Hitler-like western leaders will not only bring in terrorists but also millions of Latin American refugees after deliberately “imploding” their home countries’ economies. He urged viewers to get ready to fight MS-13 gangs “or some Islamist cell down the street.”
On the latest episode of his "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner stated that it's an outrage that Hillary Clinton has not been indicted over her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state, especially since it's been proven that both Russia and China hacked her server and that people died as a result.
"Some of the emails were classified above top secret," Joyner asserted, "and we do know that the Russians and the Chinese both hacked in, probably got all that information. We don't know how many of our people died; we know that some did. We know that some of our operatives have disappeared ... All this has come out in the news, it's all been public record."
Last week, WorldNetDaily “reporter” Jerome Corsi joined InfoWars host Alex Jones to discuss his predictions for 2016, which include economic collapse, nuclear attacks and World War III.
Corsi told Jones that “this is the most critical time in world history and we’re on the verge of a major financial collapse and a World War III event” involving nuclear conflict. “The globalists will be happy — kill 5 or 6 billion people, they’re not going to miss them, that’s the problem,” he said.
“We really have power-mad pseudo-communists run by weirdo war criminals like George Soros going completely insane,” Jones said. “It’s crazy. I don’t think they even know what they’re doing now. They just hate freedom, hate free markets, hate Christians, hate America and just want to screw everything up.”
Corsi said that the U.S. government has evolved into a “fascist” system that is being led by people who want to “keep the power in Washington and the rest of the country, ‘forget it, put them on welfare, if they’re not useful, they can be eliminated in the next global war, doesn’t matter.’” He estimated that the group slated for elimination amounts to around 90 million people.
“In the ’30s, the United States was more of a capitalist country, we had more individual freedom and we still had a God-fearing society,” Corsi said, something that would be news to many people of color. “And today that’s gone.”
But Corsi said there is some good news.
While Europe suffers financial chaos and terrorist attacks, Corsi believes that the U.S. may turn around by electing Donald Trump. Otherwise, “this is the last chapter” for America.
“While you’re saying this, there’s a giant thunderstorm overhead, it made me get chills up my back,” Jones said. “I know the left captured us, the globalists run us. Why do they want to bring in 5 million jihadis in to kill us? Why? Why do they hate prosperity and nice stuff?”
Today, as thousands of people gathered in front of the Supreme Court to voice their support of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a somewhat smaller crowd organized by Tea Party Patriots held forth against the DAPA/DACA actions and urged the Senate not to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.
We counted about 20 people at the Tea Party Patriots event at 11 am, shortly before the event’s speeches were scheduled to begin:
The heavily outnumbered protesters carried signs saying “#NoHearingsNoVotes,” “#TheDecisionIsOurs,” “#LetThePeopleDecide” and “Let The People Have A Voice On The Future Of The Court,” the message that anti-Garland groups have settled on to make their quest to block hearings on a Supreme Court nomination sound like a populist rallying cry. The sign on a podium labeled Garland “Obama’s Rubber Stamp.”
News concerences sponsored by the Tea Party and FreedomWorks also featured Reps. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), as well as other speakers who unsuccessfully tried to lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance and "America the Beautiful." An effort to lead a singalong of the national anthem backfired when the singer forgot the lyrics midway through, drawing jeers.
Earlier this month, a "National Diversity Coalition for Trump" was formed by the GOP presidential frontrunner's lawyer Michael Cohen for the purpose of, in the words of one of the group's leaders, demonstrating to voters that Donald Trump is "not racist, misogynist, sexist or Islamophobic." Trump is reportedly scheduled to meet with this group today and we are not at all surprised to see that Lance Wallnau is listed among the group members.
Wallnau, as we've noted before, is a leading proponent of Seven Mountains dominionism, the idea that Christians are to "do whatever is necessary" to take control of all aspects of the culture, such as business, educaiton and the media, in order to implement the will of God throughout the world. Wallnau is especially concerned with gaining control over the "mountain of government" because he believes that it is currently under the control of Satan ... and he seems to believe that Trump just might be the man to finally claim it for Christ.
As he declared in a video that he uploaded to his Facebook page last year, Wallnau has been leading "a group of people that are praying for and encouraging Mr. Donald Trump" because "God has given this man an anointing for the mantle of government in the United States and he will prosper!"
Also among the members of diversity coalition is Frances Rice of the National Black Republican Association, who absurdly claimed a few years ago that the GOP's infamous "Southern Strategy" was an effort by the Republican Party to get "fair-minded" non-racist voters in the South to stop supporting the racist Democratic Party.
"That strategy was designed to get the fair-minded people in the South to stop discriminating against blacks and to stop supporting a party that did not share their values," she said. "So those fair-minded ones who migrated to the Republican Party did so. They joined us, we did not join the racists."
On Friday's radio program, Bryan Fischer interviewed Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center about the new DirecTV program "You Me Her" which, according to press reports, "centers around a three-way romantic relationship involving a suburban married couple."
Fischer and Gainor were predictably outraged about the show, with Gainor decrying it for "putting a nuclear weapon under the nuclear family and destroying it."
Just 20 years ago, Fischer said, the idea of gay marriage would have been "unthinkable" but now polygamy is being openly prompted on television and this "cultural rot is becoming mainstream."
Gainor agreed, fuming that "if ISIS were to launch a widespread media propaganda campaign tearing down American culture, targeting Christianity, targeting American children for depravity ... we would declare war on them. And in fact, Hollywood does it every single day, probably every single minute."
"Hollywood is the most irresponsible use of power we have ever seen," Gainor stated.
A supporter of the bill to make the Bible the official state book of Tennessee says that the measure’s opponents in the government are almost “saying that we have to substitute hostility towards religion for a tolerance and acceptance of religion.”
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
While Sarah Palin concentrates on fighting the supposed myth of climate change, Franklin Graham and other conservatives are warning about the imminent dangers of LGBT rights.
5) Sarah Palin Debunks Climate Science
Noted climate science expert Sarah Palin was invited to publicize the recent film “Climate Hustle,” which, according to the Guardian, “dismisses global warming as an excuse for government takeover and makes the outrageously false claim that rising carbon emissions are beneficial.”
Anyone with doubts about the film’s claims can rest assured that Palin has attested to its scientific accuracy. The former half-term Alaska governor promoted the film at an event hosted by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who just so happens to chair the House committee on science, space and technology.
The former vice-presidential nominee admitted she did not believe scientists about anything any more – and appealed to presidential contenders to intervene, somehow.
“The science is kind of getting thrown out of the window in discussions about changes in the weather,” Palin said. “It’s something that our candidates should be talking about and giving us their view on and hopefully acknowledging that it needs to become in the science community less political. Otherwise, it leads us to believe that so many things then coming from the scientists could be bogus. If this is bogus, what else are they trying to tell us and control us around?”
To Palin’s mind, efforts by government, business leaders, campaigners – and yes, scientists like Nye – to fight climate change were a mere smokescreen for a huge power grab. She did not say by whom.
Palin said that climate science experts have a “political,” “predetermined agenda” and “have studied the data that they are erroneously delivering to the public to make us think that we can somehow change the weather and how they do that is to grow government and allow the government to have more control over us, our homes, our businesses, our families, our lives, and it’s quite unfortunate because these people must be purposely doing this, right?”
“Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” she declared.
4) Gay Civil War
Conservative blogger Michael Ware is very concerned about the prospect of a coming civil war.
Ware writes that just as slavery was the “wedge” that kept “pushing the North and South apart,” now America is divided by “the economic and political bullying” of states that are “unwilling to give these perverse people the legal club with which to beat the church into submission.”
What we have to ask is: is this a replay of the events that led to that bloody conflict fought between Americans from 1861-1865? Is the Unitarian playbook now being used by the Homosexual agenda to finish the destruction they started in the Church?
Or is it just coincidence that the same things are being said about the church? Are these people just pouting or are they preparing to devour our rights?
It sure looks as if the same people are again the target of their vile threatening. We must pray for deliverance from such a situation, and from such a beast.
3) Gay Socialism
While Ware thinks that the gay rights movement is leading to war, WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush believes that the movement is part of a gradual effort to introduce socialism.
He writes this week that liberals are only “concerned about the supposed rights of homosexuals, transvestites and assorted sexual deviants” because they are determined to establish a “socialist state,” and can only do so by “disenfranchising” anyone who gets in their way. LGBT equality, he writes, “negates the civil liberties of the majority” and “opens the door to ever-increasing institutional oppression of the majority faction.”
“Once this has been accomplished, not only does the doctrine of the majority no longer effectively supersede the will of the State, but the State is now free to impose secular doctrines, laws and regulations that are more conducive to state control and manipulation of the populace in every area of their lives,” Rush writes. “Thus, it becomes clear that the ‘struggle for LGBT rights’ in America is and has always been nothing more than a pretext for the complete disenfranchisement of Christians.”
2) Franklin Graham’s Diagnosis
Franklin Graham took his Decision America tour to Montgomery, Alabama, this week, where he told the crowd that the devil is behind the separation of church and state “lie” and that communist secularism is taking control of America.
“When I think of the sins of this country, well, where do you begin to list them? Abortion, the murder of children in a mother's womb. Millions. Same sex marriage, the flaunting and celebrating of this sin.”
Drawing on his childhood memories of the Cold War, Graham argued that “enemies” are engaged in warfare for the spiritual salvation of the United States.
“As the [Berlin] wall came down, secularism began to creep into Washington. It crept into our universities, into our state capitols, it got into our city government. There’s no difference between secularism and communism. They’re both godless. Both are godless. And godless secularism is now taking control of our governments.”
“You say, but Franklin, how about separation of church and state? What about it? Let me tell you that’s just a lie that the enemy uses to try to keep your mouth shut.”
In a long rant that has something to do with aspartame, Alex Jones says that Beck “was hired right before 9/11 and gotten ready to come out to be the synthetic Alex Jones,” telling InfoWars viewers that Beck “watched weeks of my videos and shows” and was told, “Take this and mix it with Oprah.”
“He’s a mixture of Oprah Winfrey and Alex Jones, all in a big, weird doughboy’s body,” Jones said. “A cult leader. A Nellie high priest.”
