BarbWire Pundit: War On Christmas And Obama Foreign Policy Will Cause God To Destroy U.S.

Writing today in the conservative outlet BarbWire, Dr. J.P. Sloane suggests that President Bush’s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict brought about Hurricane Katrina and Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon’s fatal stroke. Sloane describes such incidents as acts of God meant to punish the U.S. for not sufficiently supporting Israel as well as Sharon for bowing to U.S pressure.

Now, the right-wing commentator claims, President Obama may bring about “the destruction of America” due to his treatment of Israel. 

Not only is the Obama administration’s foreign policy putting American at risk of divine retribution, Sloane writes, but so is the country’s “Paganistic heathen slope of perversions” and the supposed War on Christmas.

While the White House is pushing Congress to not levy anymore sanctions on the terrorist nation of Iran, it seeks to impose sanctions on the only democracy and best friend of the United States, the small nation of Israel. Israel is 2 1/3 times smaller than California’s San Bernardino County, as opposed to Israel’s enemies who total the size of the whole of the United States of America. What could the Obama Administration be thinking? Who would advise the Obama Administration to do such a thing? We would be presumptuous to make any claim, but the Muslim Brotherhood does come to mind.

In the Bible we see how God uses acts of weather and nations to bring disaster to people who thumb their noses at Him. Consider when we forced Israel to give up Gaza “for peace” and the Israelis had to force their own people to not only vacate Gaza—but do the unthinkable—dig up the graves of their dead and – unceremoniously – take their exhumed corpses with them. Be forewarned America—God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7).

The day the Bush Administration leaned on Israel’s Prime Minister, Arial Sharon, to withdraw from the Gaza, turbulence began to stir in the Mid-Atlantic which became known as “Katrina!” Shortly after the removal of the Jews and their dead from Gaza, Katrina hit the city of New Orleans, breaching the city’s levy at what is known in New Orleans as “the West Bank!” Thousands of New Orleans citizens were flooded from their homes, and many sought shelter in other states. On the heels of the Jews being forced to remove their dead from Gaza, New Orleans was giving up some of its dead from the above ground crypts that dot the city. (In New Orleans they have to bury the dead above ground due to the city being below sea level.) In December—on the heels of the Gaza pullout and America’s Katrina disaster—Prime Minister Ariel Sharon—who capitulated to the Bush Administration’s demand to pull out of Gaza—was stricken with a stroke which left him in a comma until his death in January of this year.



Friends, what we are seeing is the reason America is not mentioned as a world power in Bible end times prophecy. As America continues to travel down the Paganistic heathen slope of perversions—and atheists attacking Christians and Jews—while Muslims are celebrating their holidays in the very capital of our country—yes in our very own White House—Christmas—a legal American holiday—is under attack on a regular annual basis! Obama has reduced our Navy to a weakened state not seen since before 1917, and our overall military strength is at pre-World War Two levels!



As for the Obama Administration—sanctions against Israel? Divide Jerusalem and make East Jerusalem the capital of a pseudo-nation called Palestine—really Obama? Are you sure you want to go there and have as your legacy that you were the President who reigned over the destruction of America and brought about the demise of the late, great United States?

Pat Robertson Defends Torture, Misleads On Immigration

Televangelist Pat Robertson defended the use of torture by the U.S. today, telling “700 Club” viewers that they shouldn’t be troubled by the impending release of a Senate report on torture since such “rather rough” practices were necessary to stop terrorist attacks.

“You may be shocked at some of that, but the truth is we didn’t have another incident after 9/11 and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he was caught, he was the mastermind, and they were rather rough with him but they learned invaluable information,” he said. “So I know it seems brutal but that’s the way it was.”

According to Sen. John McCain, “the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ on Khalid Sheik Mohammed produced false and misleading information” while “the best intelligence gained from a CIA detainee” was “obtained through standard, noncoercive means.”

Immediately after his remarks on torture, Robertson accused the Obama administration of releasing “30,000 immigrant criminals” into the U.S., citing a wildly inflated figure that mostly includes people who committed traffic violations.

Eagle Forum Suggests Growing Racial Diversity Is Harmful To America

Roger Schlafly, a son of Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly who has repeatedly taken to the organization’s blog to lament the increasing population of racial minorities in the U.S., yesterday took issue with a William H. Frey article in Newsweek celebrating America’s growing racial diversity.

“Tell that to the people of Ferguson Missouri,” Schlafly wrote in response to Frey’s assertion that minority groups can bring “manpower and brain power” to “otherwise stagnating city and suburban housing markets.”

Schlafly also criticized America’s “immigration policy that appears designed to repopulate the country with non-whites,” adding that he can’t think of any examples where racial diversity has helped the country.

Claim that USA needs to be saved by non-whites

Newsweek magazine has an article on America's Getting Less White, and That Will Save It:

America reached an important milestone in 2011. That occurred when, for the first time in the history of the country, more minority babies than white babies were born in a year.

Soon, most children will be racial minorities: Hispanics, blacks, Asians, and other nonwhite races. And, in about three decades, whites will constitute a minority of all Americans (see chart, below).

...

What will be different going forward is the sheer size of the minority population in the United States. It is arriving “just in time” as the aging white population begins to decline, bringing with it needed manpower and brain power and taking up residence in otherwise stagnating city and suburban housing markets.


Tell that to the people of Ferguson Missouri.

Okay, maybe that is a bad example. But what are the good examples? The article does not provide any. The comments are overwhelmingly skeptical, to put it mildly.

We do have an immigration policy that appears designed to repopulate the country with non-whites. Do our political leaders really believe that this is necessary in order that the whites be saved by the non-whites? If so, I would like to see an explanation of how that is going to work.

Joyner: High Salaries For Black Athletes Are God's Reparations For Slavery

On Friday's episode of "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events," Rick Joyner focused on the unrest that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, in the wake of a grand jury's failure to indict a white police officer who shot an unarmed black teen. While discussing his views on the issue, Joyner shared his belief that blacks were brought to America as slaves as part of God's plan to teach this nation about freedom and that the large salaries professional athletes earn today are God's reparations for slavery.

"As the Lord showed me many years ago," he said, "He sent the blacks to our country to help teach us about freedom and liberty. You say 'they were made slaves, how are they going to know about freedom and liberty?' Wasn't Israel in prison, I mean they were made slaves to Egypt. You know, the only two people groups in history that were enslaved because of their race were the Israelites and the black people."

Citing the passage in Exodus in which the Egyptians shower the Israelites with riches as payment for their years of slavery, Joyner then said that the same thing is happening today with black professional athletes.

"I believe that's one reason for all the high salaries for athletes today," he said. "I rejoice in it. The bigger the salary that are mostly going to minorities, I'm saying that's the Lord doing that. They may not use it right or anything, but  the Lord is going to repay them":

Paranoia-Rama: Return Of The 'Libtard'-Loathing Police Chief, Obama's Third Term And Hunger Games Exposed

As everybody knows, America is turning into a chaotic terrorist haven filled with race riots that is also somehow a Nazi police state, or at least that is what we learned this week from some of our favorite right-wing activists and politicians.

Stan Solomon On Michael Brown: 'I'm Glad He's Dead. He Deserves To Be Dead'

Stan Solomon celebrated the death of Michael Brown on his talk show this week during an interview with Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly. The far-right pundit, who marked Trayvon Martin’s death in the same vein, said that “Michael Brown was shot because he’s a thug. I’m glad he’s dead. He deserves to be dead. He was a thug. He had a lifetime of thuggery and his dad was a convicted drug dealer.”

Solomon made the remarks after his other guest, conservative commentator Brent Johnson, dared to suggest that the grand jury investigating Brown’s death was “conducted in an extremely biased matter.” Solomon responded that he was “embarrassed” for Johnson.

Schlafly and Solomon both pledged to give officer Darren Wilson money and defended his role in the shooting.

Glenn Beck's Miraculous Double Rainbow

After he and his co-host Pat Gray reasonably explained why Satanists are not entitled to equal treatment under the law because ... well, they're just not, Glenn Beck recounted on his radio show today a miraculous experience in which God saved his "Man in the Moon" show from bad weather.

Back in 2013, Beck hosted a three-day event in Salt Lake City that featured, as its main attraction, a large stage production of a program called "The Man In The Moon," in which Beck told the story of humanity from the perspective of the moon.

The show would "change the way we celebrate the Fourth of July," Beck promised, and it turned out to be so important that God even stopped it from raining that weekend so that it could be performed, as Beck explained today.

"I am not afraid of standing and saying that was a miracle," Beck said. "And we have seen them, starting at 'The Man In The Moon.' There's one that 20,000 people saw. It hadn't rained in a hundred years on that weekend. It rains on that weekend and I mean rained, it pours, it pours rain. What happens? We get together, all of us and we pray. 20,000 people, we pray. There's a double rainbow over the stage. It clears up. It was absolutely miraculous":

Beck: Allowing Satanic Display Is A Sign That 'Destruction Is Coming Our Way'

Among the five displays approved for the Florida Capitol this holiday season will be one produced the Satanic Temple and Glenn Beck is not pleased, warning that "destruction is coming our way."

Even though the Satanic Temple does not actually worship or even believe in a literal Satan, Beck's co-host Pat Gray was particularly upset by the news, insisting that the Constitution does not guarantee Satanists the right to equal treatment.

"There's nothing in the Constitution that says every religion is equal," he said. "There just isn't."

"I have news for ya," Beck chimed in, "destruction is coming our way."

Gray then returned to his cogent legal argument as to why other religions are not entitled to equal treatment under the law by explaining that "when Satanists come to you and say 'well, we want equal time,' you tell them 'tough, you're not getting it!'"

And why don't Satanists deserve equal time, according to Gray?

"Because you don't deserve it" ... unlike Christianity.

"Christianity has earned the right," Beck added, "not in the Dark Ages, but in this country, they have earned the right to be at the table":

Phyllis Schlafly, Unsurprisingly, Does Not Think Pregnant UPS Employees Should 'Have It All'

When a number of prominent anti-abortion rights groups submitted an amicus brief defending the rights of pregnant workers in Young v. UPS, a case that was argued before the Supreme Court this week, we were not surprised that Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum was not among them. After all, Schlafly has built a long career out of arguing against protections for women in their careers.

In fact, it turns out, Schlafly submitted her very own amicus brief [pdf] in the case defending UPS’s right to suspend employees who become pregnant. And even thought the brief is written by Schlafly’s attorney Larry Joseph, it is full of classic Schlafly wisdom about how pregnant women most certainly cannot  “have it all.”

In the brief, Eagle Forum argues that the plaintiff, Peggy Young, was seeking “preferential treatment” by not being suspended from her job for getting pregnant. In fact, the brief goes on to argue, in enacting the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the interpretation of which is at issue in Young, “Congress never intended…to eliminate stereotypes of husband-breadwinner, wife-homemaker families” or “to have pregnant women work as package-delivering truck drivers” although the “eradication of typical – or even stereotypical – families was the goal of the feminist movement.”

In enacting PDA, Congress never intended: (1) to eliminate stereotypes of husband-breadwinner, wife-homemaker families; (2) to have women return to work immediately after giving birth to the exclusion of caring for their newborns; (3) to have pregnant women work as package-delivering truck drivers; or (4) to privilege the status of female truck drivers over either male truck drivers or the women married to male truck drivers. While the eradication of typical – or even stereotypical – families was the goal of the feminist movement, Congress generally has taken the more moderate path advocated by UPS here. By contrast, Young demands that UPS provide her with light duty for nine months when typical on the-job light duty lasts a month, so that she continues to draw her high pay while forcing her predominantly male coworkers – who support their own spouses and children – to do the heavy lifting. It insults pregnancy to characterize this situation as pregnancy discrimination.

The brief goes on to argue that Young and her allies want to “impose their pregnancies on coworkers,” thus “[f]acilitating single motherhood out of a strained sense of equality”:

At all times relevant to this action, Young herself was married to a man whose job provided medical insurance. Nonetheless, much of the advocacy and data submitted to this Court press the concerns of single women who work and want to have children. If PDA did allow women like Young and similarly situated single women to impose their pregnancies on coworkers, PDA might provide enough of a cushion for Young, but it would leave similarly situated single women short, once their children were born. Facilitating single motherhood out of strained sense of equality does not do the women or the children a significant or long-lasting favor[.]

Finally, Eagle Forum argues that for “both married women like Young and especially for single mothers” there is no right to work while pregnant. “Life is a series of tradeoffs,” it concludes, “and ‘you can have it all’ does not mean ‘having it all given to you.’”

Third, although Young herself was married when the underlying facts unfolded, the position pressed by Young and her amici also extends to single working mothers. For both married women like Young and especially for single mothers, neither this Court nor this Nation have ever recognized a “fundamental right to bear children while also participating fully and equally in the workforce.” Senator Williams – as quoted in Guerra – should not be construed to mean that women can “have it all” through some “fundamental right” to avoid the inevitable tradeoffs between work and family life. Life is a series of tradeoffs, and “you can have it all” does not mean “having it all given to you.”

AFA News Director: Demanding Public Trials For Police Officers 'Sounds A Whole Lot Like Lynching'

Bryan Fischer was out sick yesterday, so the American Family Association's news director, Fred Jackson, filled in as guest host on Fischer's "Focal Point" radio program where he interviewed the ACRU's Robert Knight about the protests that have erupted after two separate grand juries failed to indict police officers for killing unarmed black men.

Knight declared that the activists who have protested these decisions are "trying desperately to start a race war" and blamed President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for fanning the flames by supposedly suggesting that all police officers are racist.

"They really need to be taken to the woodshed for this," Knight said, which prompted Jackson to declare that those who are demanding that these police officers face trial for their actions are really calling for them to be lynched.

"Somebody was saying this morning, 'we ought to have public trials,'" Jackson said. "What do you mean by a public trial? That sounds a whole lot like lynching to me":

Bill Donohue: Non-Religious People Need Therapy Since They Die Prematurely And Are Disproportionately Insane

Bill Donohue’s latest “Christian persecution” campaign took another bizarre twist yesterday when he told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg that he is willing to pay for therapy for non-religious people…since they are probably insane.

“They believe that freedom is license to do whatever they want,” the Catholic League president explained. “They don’t want to be told anything, which is why they die prematurely, they’re unhappy, that’s why we have a disproportionate number of agnostics and atheists in the asylum, all of this is true.”

Donohue said “secularists” have an inferior “mental health, physical health and degree of happiness,” adding: “They got to work it out, fine, I’ll help pay for their therapy, just take your hands, your mitts off the Catholics during Christmas.”

Bill Donohue: Christians In Cuba Have More Rights Than Americans

The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue stopped by Newsmax TV yesterday to advertise his Christmas-themed billboard campaign likening the supposed persecution of Christians in the U.S. to the violent targeting of Christians in the Mideast, insisting that liberals would brutally oppress Christians in America if they could get away with it.

Donohue bizarrely claimed that he posted the billboards in order to “make a point” but only to then immediately take that point back.

“The point is trying to make a point and then taking it back,” he said. “I am obviously not going to equate people who bash us in radio and television and the media in general and the entertainment industry with people who are going to behead us, but Christians and Catholics in particular are fed up with being bashed with impunity. It’s all about hate speech.”

When Malzberg asked if American liberals “would, if they could, go further” by violently attacking Christians, Donohue responded that “there’s no question about it.” “They would turn us into Cuba. As a matter of fact, Cuba I think has more rights now. The Cubans in Miami are building a Catholic church there and I don’t think you can get away with that in many parts of this country,” he added.

Garlow: Force Gay Marriage Supporters To Live In Houses With Improper Plumbing

Earlier this week, Jim Garlow called in to the "Point Of View" radio program to discuss his participation in the Vatican's recent summit on marriage. During the course of the conversation, Garlow offered up a rather interesting argument against the acceptance of gay marriage.

"All the people who advocate for so-called same-sex marriage ought to have to live in homes in which the plumbers who built them, or the electricians who built them, didn't understand the difference between the male and female end of piping or plumbing or of electrical as well," he said, "and see how that home works out for them."

"It doesn't work," he concluded:

Matt Barber Claims Satan Is 'The Author' Of Gay Marriage

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber were discussing the recent Vatican summit that was attended by a variety of anti-gay American Religious Right activists.

Staver and Barber praised those who attended, especially Rick Warren, for their strong stand against gay marriage, which Barber said was designed by Satan.

"There are flip sides to a coin here," Barber said. "God designed marriage between man and woman in Genesis and Christ himself reiterated this Matthew 19, said it's between a man and a woman. If God is the author of marriage, man-woman marriage, then you have to ask, we're talking about the spiritual context here, who is the author of this perverted marriage, idea of marriage, which is the flip-side of the coin? God is the author of natural marriage. The Enemy is the author of unnatural marriage, and that's what we're talking about here, unnatural marriage, counterfeit marriage. It's the flip side of the coin. It's light and dark":

GOP Lawmaker: Thanksgiving Reminds Us To Oppose Gay Rights

Michigan Republicans have delayed progress on a measure to include sexual orientation as a legally protected category in the 1976 Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, the state’s anti-discrimination law. State representative-elect Todd Courser has emerged as one of the leading opponents of the effort, warning this week that the measure would give “special rights to the LGBT community, while placing the rights of religious groups and individuals in peril.”

His Thanksgiving message to supporters last week was even more blunt, citing the story of the Pilgrims, or at least the myth that they came in search of religious freedom, as a reason to oppose protections for gays and lesbians.

“Thanksgiving is about the impossible journey of a small group of worshipers who took flight from oppression to have the freedom to practice their religion without the interference of government,” Courser wrote in the message, “we are now, if this expansion to Elliott Larsen passes at the hands of my own party, at the point where the group that will be discriminated against is Christians and any other faith that chooses to stand against the LGBT activists — we will no longer have the freedom to practice our religion or have freedom of speech that our Founders personally sacrificed to give us.”

Warning of an attempt to “destroy freedoms of religion and speech for our children and their children” and “institutionalize discrimination against Christians and other faiths,” Courser wrote that lawmakers who back the effort are “promoting evil.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

I would normally send a message from my family to yours and avoid any talk about politics on Thanksgiving, but I feel impressed to take this moment and speak about the end of religious liberty and freedom of speech at the hands of our Republican Speaker in the State House. Thanksgiving is about the impossible journey of a small group of worshipers who took flight from oppression to have the freedom to practice their religion without the interference of government; we are now, if this expansion to Elliott Larsen passes at the hands of my own party, at the point where the group that will be discriminated against is Christians and any other faith that chooses to stand against the LGBT activists – we will no longer have the freedom to practice our religion or have freedom of speech that our Founders personally sacrificed to give us.

The Effort by the GOP to wrap this Expansion of Elliott Larsen in some weak religious exemption is akin to taking a Cheap Pig and Slapping a Cheap Lipstick Makeover on it; it is still a pig and it still has cheap lipstick on it. This is the granting of protected class status to the LGBT community and in doing so, it kills religious liberty and freedom of speech! Don't be fooled…and don't let your rep off the hook for standing SILENT as this rolls through the House. Ask them where their press releases on this issue are...encourage them to stand against this rouge action by the Republican Speaker who has been paid a small fortune and is partnering with the LGBT activists to destroy religious liberty and freedom of speech!

If this expansion to Elliott Larsen passes it will institutionalize discrimination against Christians and other faiths and make freedom of religion and freedom of speech subservient to the wishes of the homosexual lobby.



Please do not lose sight of this; it is the Republican Leadership actively moving the Democrat’s agenda, having partnered with the LGBT community to move this liberty killing legislation forward. If you don't tell your rep how you feel it’s going to happen! Then two years from now they will simply tell you they stood against it quietly.

"To not speak is to speak and to not act is to act..." For me it is time to speak...



We, as Republican Elected Officials cannot allow leaders, who exist by the power they derived from our districts, to promote evil, without standing up and forcing the issues into the public; if we do then we ourselves are complicit in this unholy alliance. Right now, it is the Republican, not the Democrat, leadership who is moving to grant protected class status to the LGBT community and in so doing destroy freedoms of religion and speech for our children and their children. We cannot stand silently as this happens as it is the very principle that founded this great nation. It is the Republicans, who are now termed out and leaving that are amassing capital for themselves to pursue cushy lobbying jobs or next election runs, who are promoting this evil. We, as leaders, are held to account for how and when we use our influence, especially when we refuse to stand up and call these actions out in our own party as evil.

William Gheen: Only President Louie Gohmert Can Save Christmas From The Immigrants

Anti-immigrant activist William Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration, stopped by VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program yesterday to discuss how a coalition of “big tycoons and kings and princes and emperors” is trying to take America down through immigration, thus taking away power from Americans who celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and the Fourth of July, and his cunning plan to stop this from happening by having Rep. Louie Gohmert or Rep. Steve King ascend to the presidency.

“The megawealth of the planet has never really been happy about the United States of America and this entire concept that we the people are self-governed and in charge and that big tycoons and kings and princes and emperors, like Obama’s acting like, are not in charge,” Gheen said. “And they’ve found a way to take over our corporations, to take over our media, to take over our country by facilitating a very costly and deadly illegal alien invasion.”

He warned that Americans are in “mortal danger” from immigration and from the “growing anti-Christ spirit and anti-Christ movement in this country that is becoming stronger and more emboldened as the traditional conservative center-right Americans are displaced in our jobs and our politics and elections.”

“When you look at a lot of places around the world like China and Cambodia and Vietnam and parts of Africa and other places where leftist-socialist things like this have occurred,” he added, “things have gotten apocalyptically bad for the group of people that had been in power before the socialists took over.” Talk about “demographic change in America as if it’s a natural thing to occur,” he added, is “a constant narrative in the media that has tried to make gun owners look bad, white Americans look bad, gun owners look bad.”

“That type of aggression – some of which you see it around the Ferguson situation, and you saw it around Duke Lacrosse and you saw it around the Trayvon Martin situation — these defamation, these stirring people up,” he said, is resulting in “the over 320,000 violent crimes minorities commit against whites in America.” He warned that America is going the way of London, which he claimed is rife with “prior illegal aliens storming into neighborhoods and bursting right into the houses to rape and pillage because they’ve already disarmed everybody through full gun confiscation.”

Gheen also warned that the goal of immigration reform is to bring in voters who will vote for Democrats, thus displacing Americans who celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July: “Once this happens, the Socialist States of America are fait accompli, and anybody that represents the sort of moderate ground or center-right past Americans that celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving and things like that, Fourth of July type Americans, will never be in charge of our own country.”

But luckily, Gheen has a solution. When a caller asked about how to “remove Obama from office,” Gheen proposed a simple plan. First, he said, “we’re working on Boehner and McConnell right now because those dominos have to fall and we can move to the next phase.”

The next phase, he said, would be for Congress to impeach and remove both President Obama and Vice President Biden.

Then the final piece of the puzzle comes into place: get Rep. Louie Gohmert or Rep. Steve King elected Speaker of the House, so he can ascend to the presidency until the next election is held.

Sandy Rios: Chokehold Victim Eric Garner 'Knew The Drill'

American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios reacted to a Staten Island grand jury’s decision not to indict the police officer responsible for the death of Eric Garner by warning that the move will be used by “the horrendous agitators among us to make the situation as bad as possible.”

Rios said that while she was “sad to see Eric Garner get arrested like that,” he should’ve knew better.

“He resisted arrest again. I don’t understand,” Rios said while reflecting on how a police officer taught her young son always obey the police. “Why Eric didn’t do that, I don’t know. They said he had been arrested 32 times prior to that so he certainly knew the drill. So it’s a sad, it’s very, very sad and it’s really sad to know now that this will be an occasion for more violence and more of the evil that loves this stuff and comes in and loves to stir it up and make a situation worse than it already is.”

The AFA spokeswoman then likened people demonstrating over Garner’s death to Chinese dictator Mao Zedong in their inclination to “agitate and to make matters worse.”

“That’s what the evil, dark center of the left does, and that’s certainly what they’re going to do,” she said.

GOPer Glenn Grothman: Government Wants To 'Destroy The Nuclear Family'

Wisconsin Republican state Sen. Glenn Grothman, who was recently elected to the U.S. House, appeared on “Washington Watch” yesterday to reiterate his pledge to weaken government efforts to help low-income families, which he has denounced as “a bribe not to work that hard or a bribe not to marry someone with a full-time job.”

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, the host of the program, agreed with the Grothman, claiming that liberals see “big government entitlement programs” as “sacred” institutions, while the soon-to-be congressman warned that “the government is doing all they can to destroy the nuclear family.”

“Right now we are in a crisis in this country as the old-fashioned American family seems to be on a decline and there’s no question that one of the reasons is that the federal government, and to a lesser degree some state governments, are encouraging this,” Grothman said, before linking government programs to out-of-wedlock births: “in order to take advantage of the programs you almost have to be in a single-parent situation.”

Grothman alleged that the government has now set up a “bribe not to get married,” which is ballooning the national debt and preventing America “from being the great country we are.”

He added that the government’s “over-generosity” is “creating a society in which you are encouraging people to raise children out of wedlock” and “encouraging not the lifestyle that listeners of this program would want.”

Beck: Al Sharpton Is A Terrorist Cleric

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today by expressing his disbelief that a grand jury had failed to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner ... and then proceeded to spend a large part of the remainder of the program attacking Al Sharpton as a terrorist cleric.

Beck and his co-hosts were discussing a debate that took place between Bill O'Reilly and Tavis Smiley last night over the issue of police violence against black Americans, which somehow set Beck off on a rant against Sharpton, whom he declared was no different than a radical Islamic cleric.

"Al Sharpton's not a reverend, he's a cleric!" Beck fumed. "Stop calling Al Sharpton a preacher. He's a cleric. He's a dangerous extremist cleric."

When co-host Stu Burguiere attempted to point out that maybe the comparison was not quite apt, as Sharpton has never killed anyone nor called for anyone to be killed, Beck wasn't buying it.

"Really?" Beck asked. "Al Sharpton's not killed anybody? Can we look? Has there been any deaths in any of these marches? How much terror has been done on the streets of Ferguson? How much terror? What do you think this is? These are terrorist organizations! They are terrorizing the people of Ferguson. They are terrorizing the store owners":

GOP Congressman Denounces People Protesting Eric Garner Case

Rep. Matt Salmon has joined his GOP colleague Peter King in denouncing critics of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner, which sparked protests throughout the country.

While speaking with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, the Arizona Republican said protesters should recognize that “it was clear to the grand jury that [the police officer] operated under the scope of his authority and he did what any reasonable officer would’ve done to subdue somebody that was resisting arrest.”

“Justice was served,” he added. “That’s the way the process works.”

Salmon added that he is tired of those who “constantly” bring up “allegations of profiling or whatever the case may be,” including “people who profit off of perpetuating these kinds of schisms in our society like Al Sharpton and those guys that are always constantly out there trying to make something that doesn’t exist.”
