Louie Gohmert: 'I'm Not A 'Phobe' Of Anything'

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, took to the House floor today to warn that “radical Islamic terrorists realize they’re winning” because the Obama administration refuses to blame Islam for terrorist attacks such as those that took place in Paris last week.

Later in his remarks, Gohmert once again suggested that President Obama is secretly a Muslim, citing an incident in the 2008 primary season when then-candidate Obama mistakenly said he had visited 57 states, which Gohmert contends was an accidental reference to the 57 members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. (The slightly more likely explanation for the verbal mix-up is that there were 57 contests in the Democratic presidential primary, but Gohmert is never one to be satisfied with the obvious explanation!)

But that was just prelude to Gohmert’s brave declaration that he is not a bigot: “I fear God, I don’t fear any man. I’m not a ‘phobe’ of anything, but it’s time to recognize truth and that is that radical Islamic terrorists want to destroy our way of life and kill us. It’s very simple.”

John Hagee: 'Anti-Semitic' Obama Is Sticking His Finger 'In The Eye Of God'

A few months ago, televangelist John Hagee came under fire for calling President Obama "one of the most anti-Semitic presidents in the history of the United States of America" and eventually had to walk back that statement, claiming that he misspoke and merely meant to call Obama "one of the most anti-Israel presidents in U.S. history."

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," however, Hagee once again called Obama "anti-Semitic" as he slammed him for not attending the unity march in Paris, saying that in skipping the rally, Obama was telling Jews all over the world that he doesn't care about their safety and security and was sticking his finger "in the eye of God."

"Not going to Paris sends a very clear message to the American Jewish community," Hagee said. "And that message is: we simply don't care. The clear message to Israel: you are alone; if you really get in a jam, don't look toward America for help. The president simply does not care."

"When you attack the Jewish people, you are picking a fight with God Almighty," he continued. "When you pick a fight with the Jewish people, you are sticking your finger in the eye of God. Wake up, America! Let's get involved in this global fight against anti-Semitism.  God Almighty is watching and it means a great deal to our national security because if we walk away from Israel, God will walk away from us."

Hagee went on to urge activists to contact Republicans in Congress and press them to pass a resolution declaring that any attack against Israel will be considered an attack against America in order to make Obama veto it, thereby exposing him "as the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel person that he is":

Right-Wing Radio Host Suggests GOP Congressman Is Inserting 'Islam Into Our Government'

As we’ve reported, an episode of the radio show “Fortress of Faith” that aired on American Family Radio this weekend alleged that President Obama is a secret member of the Muslim Brotherhood who tried to give billions of dollars to Hamas.

During the same program, host Shahram Hadian claimed that Islamists are taking over the U.S. government by organizing groups such as the bipartisan Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus. Ahmadis are a minority group in Islam who have faced tremendous persecution, and the caucus was created to try to find ways the U.S. government can help combat such threats.

Hadian, however, claimed that the caucus’s establishment is proof that “Islam is getting into our government” and represents an Islamist influence operation.

When the caucus was founded in 2014, it was co-chaired by Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier and Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, who did not run for re-election last year. Interestingly enough, Wolf was one of the favorite congressmen of Religious Right groups such as the Family Research Council. Another group, the National Religious Broadcasters, even gave Wolf its “Faith & Freedom Award.”

But now it seems he was an Islamist all along, which according to this paranoid thinking, implicates the many conservative groups that worked with Wolf in the Islamic conspiracy!

Religious Right Radio Show Promotes Anti-Semitic Newspaper's Wild Obama Conspiracy Theory

Over the weekend, the “Fortress of Faith” radio show, a program aired on the American Family Association’s radio network, dedicated an episode to discussing an article from an Egyptian newspaper, Al-Wafd, alleging that President Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. According to the show’s hosts, Al-Wafd, which has also depicted Obama as Satan, uncovered a supposed plot by Obama to give the Muslim Brotherhood $8 billion to transfer to Hamas, which would then use the funds to take over the Sinai peninsula.

Host Tom Wallace, who during the program got the name of Egypt’s president wrong, expressed disbelief that the U.S. media didn’t cover Obama’s (non-existent) ties to the group.

The Al-Wafd article has been widely mocked by experts as completely “ludicrous,” but the AFA hosts cited the article throughout the program as an “earth-shattering” report that could lead to Obama’s conviction for “high treason.”

As The Economist explains, the Egyptian media, dominated by allies of President Sisi, believes that the Muslim Brotherhood is a tool of the U.S. (to make matters more complicated, some Muslim Brotherhood supporters allege that Sisi and his supporters are themselves tools of the U.S.).

Not only is America calling the shots of the Muslim Brotherhood, their theory goes, but so is Israel, which several Egyptian media outlets have claimed is using the Muslim Brotherhood to divide and ultimately destroy Egypt. This conspiracy theory about a “Zionist-American-Muslim Brotherhood plot” and its “diabolical plan to divide and weaken Israel’s most powerful Arab neighbours, one by one,” has its roots in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about powerful Jews secretly steering world events.

The newspaper lauded by the “Fortress of Faith” hosts, Al-Wafd, pushed anti-Semitic claims, including the notorious anti-Semitic forgery “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” in its Muslim Brotherhood-Obama exposé:

One manifestation of the current regime's de-legitimization campaign against the MB is comparing them to Jews and Zionists. The press associated with the regime has claimed that that the global MB resembles global Zionism, and that its schemes are the same as those of the Protocols. It has also claimed that MB founder Hassan Al-Bana was Jewish, as well as several other movement leaders. A number of Facebook pages depict MB members as Jews masquerading as Muslims, and feature images of [MB President Muhammad] Mursi in Jewish garb and MB symbols emblazoned with Stars of David.



In an “investigative report” in the daily Al-Wafd, Magdi Salama also argued that the MB was implementing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and cited a few examples. He wrote: "Whoever reads the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which were formulated by the priests of global Zionism 116 years ago, and then scrupulously examines what the MB is currently doing in Egypt, discovers something grave: The MB is implementing the Protocols to the letter!

"In their Protocols, the Zionists are mainly concerned with destroying governments in every country, sowing the seeds of strife and quarrel in all countries and changing the [atmosphere] in the countries from one of tolerance to one of political and religious radicalism. This is precisely what the MB has currently undertaken to do in Egypt. The leaders of global Zionism stress the need to control people the way one controls herds of lowly cattle, to use their expression, so they can be moved around like chess pieces. This is precisely what the MB are doing by [invoking their] principle of hearing and obeying the movement's [General] Guide.

"The Ninth Protocol talks about deceiving the public with mendacious slogans, and this is precisely what the MB does with its sit-down strikes, [like those it held] in Raba'a [Al-'Adawiya] and Al-Nahda [Square], when it emphasizes that these sit-down strikes are on behalf of Islam and the shari'a and [constitute] sacrificing oneself for the sake of Allah, while in actuality this is political activity that is completely unrelated to religion or self-sacrifice on Allah's behalf.

"Those who were astounded by Muhammad Mursi's victory in the Egyptian presidential [elections] should read the Tenth Protocol of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, because it exposes the big secret behind Mursi's attaining the Egyptian presidency and also exposes the secret behind Israel's joy at Mursi’s victory. This Protocol says: 'We will prevent people with common sense from leading, keep them back, and never allow them to make plans of their own. The mob (so the Protocol says) has become accustomed to leaning our way [to the Jews]; we provide it with money in exchange for its obedience. By such means we will create a force so blind that it will never be able to reach any decision without the guidance of our representatives, whom we appointed to lead it'…"

Gov. Jindal, Sen. Lankford To Speak At Christian Nationalist's Training Session For Pastors Running For Office

Last week, we noted that David Lane, the secretive and radical Religious Right activist who is organizing Gov. Bobby Jindal's upcoming "The Response" prayer rally, is also behind an effort to get 1,000 pastors to run for political office.

Lane is seeking to transform America through the election of hundreds of right-wing pastors who share his Christian Nationalist agenda and, to that end, has organized a training session to take place the day before Jindal's prayer rally called "Issachar Training: Men and Women of Issachar," which will feature advice for pastors on how to run for office from Jindal, Sen. James Lankford, and others:

Dear Pastor,

Please prayerfully consider being my guest at a pastors’ briefing hosted by my friends at the American Renewal Project. We are going to discuss the importance of raising up the next generation of leaders in America who understand these challenging times and know what to do about them. There is a great need for the kind of leaders we read about in the Old Testament, “The Men of Issachar” (1 Chronicles 12:32). We need such men and women of wisdom today who will accept the challenge to restore our Judeo-Christian heritage in America.

On January 23, 2015, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, pastors will be given an exclusive opportunity to explore the Call to Serve. I ask you to spend time in prayer seeking the Lord’s guidance for the role He has for you to play in protecting Religious Liberty in our nation. As we make an appeal for leaders of faith to rise up and engage America in the public square with Biblical values, we are trusting you will hear God’s call on your life for this mission.

Our goal is to educate, and encourage leaders by informing them and inspiring them of their Biblical, historical roots, and to step out in courage to join us in this journey of faith.  The call is not to take our nation back, but to get back to God. The time has come for pastors to lead the way and reset the course of American governance.

I hope you will join us for an evening of information and inspiration as we all work together in the mission of bringing America back to God. A formal invitation is coming to you. Let me encourage you to register online by means of the link provided in the invitation, as soon as you receive it.

Blessings,

Governor Bobby Jindal

BarbWire: Gay People See Children As 'Helpless Guinea Pigs'

BarbWire senior editor Jeff Allen hopes that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejects the arguments of marriage equality supporters in its upcoming marriage rulings, writing in his column today that gay people are preying on children in order to advance their agenda and “self-serving desires.”

“America’s most vulnerable among us have tragically become the helpless guinea pigs,” he writes.

Allen also warns that marriage equality is leading to a “ghoulish ‘gay’ adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau gone horribly awry,” referring to the H.G. Wells novel about a scientist who tried to turn animals into humans.

He cited a brief submitted by anti-LGBT activists Robert Oscar LopezDawn StefanowiczKaty Faust and Rivka Edelman, who goes by B.N. Klein, who claim that they were harmed by being raised by same-sex parents.

Based upon nothing more than the self-serving desires of homosexual activists, marriage is being radically morphed into an unrecognizable monstrosity of its former self. It’s like some kind of ghoulish “gay” adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau gone horribly awry. And America’s most vulnerable among us have tragically become the helpless guinea pigs.

These eye-opening testimonials from the “quartet of truth” shed much needed light upon the devastating repercussions of the Left’s misguided social experiment in all its gory details. We must rein in this madness before many more children are forced to suffer needlessly.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals would be wise to refrain from acting like judicial oligarchs by overstepping their constitutionally-imposed boundaries. The justices should do the right thing and heed the voices of the victimized, who know firsthand what they’re talking about. A display of such exceptional legal restraint would actually be quite refreshing, and it’s long overdue.

The time has finally come to put the “prudence” back in jurisprudence.

Laurie Higgins: Marriage Equality Inherently Wrong, Just Like The Three-Fifths Compromise

Laurie Higgins, the “cultural analyst” for the American Family Association-affiliated Illinois Family Institute, defended the right of businesses to deny service to gay people yesterday by arguing that same-sex couples are intrinsically inferior to opposite-sex couples.

Since a same-sex marriage “is the antithesis of a marriage,” Higgins wrote on the organization’s website, businesses should be allowed to refuse service to anyone they “believe mocks real marriage and offends God.”

Legalizing same-sex marriage, according to Higgins, is much like the Constitution’s three-fifths compromise: “Just as legally construing a human as 3/5 person would not make him in reality only 3/5 a person, the foolish decision of foolish people to recognize legally a homoerotic union as a ‘marriage’ does not make it in reality a marriage.”

A ceremony that celebrates the union of two people of the same-sex is not identical to a ceremony that celebrates the union of two people of opposite sexes. Such a ceremony is the antithesis of a marriage, which is why many orthodox Christians will not use the terms “wedding” or “marriage” to describe the union of two people of the same-sex.

Calling a homoerotic union a “marriage” does not make it a marriage in reality. Just as legally construing a human as 3/5 person would not make him in reality only 3/5 a person, the foolish decision of foolish people to recognize legally a homoerotic union as a “marriage” does not make it in reality a marriage.

So, the request of homosexuals for a cake for their “wedding” is not the same as a request from a heterosexual couple for a cake for their wedding. Homosexuals are seeking to compel bakers to make a product for an entirely different type of event, and one which the bakers believe mocks real marriage and offends God.



Due to the astonishing influence of homosexual and “trans” activism and the unbiblical cowardice of Christians—including especially Christian leaders—we’re going to see the government increasingly making demands on Christians with which Christians ought not comply. It is during those times that Christians should remember that we are commanded to “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Fundraiser for Steve “David Duke Without the Baggage” Scalise Met with Protestors

PFAW members and other local activists lined the sidewalk outside of the National Republican Club Tuesday afternoon to protest a fundraiser event for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

Scalise, who was elected Majority Whip by his Republican colleagues back in June, has come under fire recently after it came to light that in 2002, he gave a speech to a white supremacist group affiliated with former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Scalise even has referred to himself as “David Duke without the baggage.”

Incredibly, even after these revelations, the Republican caucus—including Speaker John Boehner – is standing by Scalise. And Scalise certainly doesn’t seem to think this scandal is reason to slow down his fundraising efforts, as evidenced by the meeting his team held with donors on Tuesday, where PFAW members joined protestors from other organizations including Color of Change and Jewish advocacy group Bend the Arc.

It’s hard to believe that the GOP, which has struggled so much to reach minority voters, isn’t distancing itself from party leadership with ties to white supremacists. Republicans need to be held accountable – we need to ask our Republican representatives in Congress whether, in 2015, they are brave enough to take a stand against racism.

Thousands of PFAW members have already signed the petition calling on Speaker Boehner to remove Scalise from his leadership position. Add your name now.

Brian Brown Tells Moscow Conference: Americans Reject 'New And False Vision Of The Family'

As we noted just now, we recently discovered that the website for the international conference of social conservatives hosted at the Kremlin in September has posted a number of English transcripts of speeches given at the event, including those of a handful of American activists.

One of those activists was Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, who had previously testified before a Russian parliamentary committee in favor of tightening the country's laws  preventing the adoption of Russian orphans by same-sex couples.

Brown warned the audience in Moscow that “[i]n the West especially there is an attempt to silence those of us who stand for the truth of marriage” but claimed that Americans in general oppose LGBT rights. Lamenting that “there’s a picture that is sometimes painted of the United States as if all of us in the U.S. are somehow embracing this new and false vision of the family,” Brown said that it is “unelected judges” who are “coming and simply throwing away the votes” of Americans who oppose LGBT equality, violating “our civil right to have our vote counted.”

Brown told the conference attendees that he was hopeful for the future of the “international pro-family movement” that would “stand in a united manner against the attempt to redefine the very nature of what it means to be a human being.”

It is a great blessing to be with all of you here, in Moscow. I must say I am obviously an American, and I have eight children. We do exist, there are Americans with large families, but I never thought, and after talking to so many other Americans that are here today, I don’t think any of us ever thought that we would be here in Moscow, uniting together with all of you and seeing the leadership in defense of the family that we’re seeing in this country, and God bless you for that.

There are three things I want to discuss today. I want to focus primarily on what the future of the international pro-family movement is. Because what is occurring here, and what is occurring around the world, with leaders coming together, and meeting, and thinking, and discussing, and planning, and organizing, is a historic moment. We have an opportunity, we have been placed here to make a change.

Of course we see all of the bad that’s occurring. We see the countries that are embracing a false notion of marriage, we see the depressing and horrible rates of abortion in countries around the world; we see the negatives from what goes on in the media, what we see in movies. But there’s also a great good occurring, and great opportunities, and I think this moment in history is the time in which people from around the globe who understand the truth of the nature of the family, the truth of the nature of human dignity, the truth about what we need to do to protect the unborn, – we have an opportunity to band together, even in places that might seem unlikely, even in new relationships that we haven’t had in the past, to stand in a united manner against the attempt to redefine the very nature of what it means to be a human being. Because that in fact is what the redefinition of the family is all about.

So I think there are three characteristics of this new movement that we should embrace as we move forward. Number one – I think we need a boldness, a willingness to speak. In the West especially there is an attempt to silence those of us who stand for the truth of marriage; there is an attempt to punish donors who’ve donated to protect marriage in states like California throughout the country, to get their names in public, to try and fire people who are standing up for their beliefs, from their jobs, simply because they are standing for the truth of the union of a man and a woman.

At this point in history, it’s not enough to shrug your shoulders and say, “Well, I’m not going to deal with that.” We have to deal with it, we have to stand for the truth, we have to be bold.

At the same time, I believe we need a humility in our interactions around the world. What I mean is, much of our mass media is telling us things that may or may not be true, and it requires humility to work together with those that you may have differences on other matters, on the key issues of marriage and life. It takes humility to say that there are other countries that have stood up, and there’s something we can learn from them, especially if there’ve been other historic differences. I look at France, and I see one million people in the streets. We need to learn from France standing up for marriage.

It also takes humility that there’s a picture that is sometimes painted of the United States as if all of us in the U.S. are somehow embracing this new and false vision of the family. That is not true. The reality is that when the people of state after state have been able to vote on the definition of marriage, they voted to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Only in a few states has marriage been redefined. In 32 states the people have voted, even in California, to protect marriage as the union of a man and a woman. When the people have been able to have their say, they’ve stood up for the truth! The problem is that we are now in a position when judges, unelected judges are coming and simply throwing away the votes of all of these millions of Americans! We have to stand up for civil rights, our civil right to have our vote counted!

So I think that when talking about the United States it’s important to understand that there are many-many people that are working to protect marriage, that are working to protect life and don’t accept the changes that are occurring at the higher levels of government.

Finally, I think we need to be faithful. Our Lord said that we would be persecuted if we stood up for righteousness; we are going to be persecuted, it is going to take a faithfulness for all of us that when we are persecuted and when there are attempts to divide us, that we stand together for the truth! There are many issues on which we may disagree; there are many issues of geopolitics that there may be differences of opinion in this room, but what we are united on is the fundamental truth that is at stake in this century, and that is the truth of the beauty and dignity of marriage and family.

And I believe, instead of fear, or being depressed, or being negative, we need an optimism with our faith, to say that no culture can long stand that neglects or denies the truth, the simple truth that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. No culture can long stand that denies the inherent dignity of each and every human being. We need to proclaim this truth, be faithful, and I believe, it may take five years, ten years, fifteen years, even decades in the future. If we are faithful, we will make a change. But above all that, whether the change occurs or not, we are all called to do this. This is our mission, this is our duty, and it is our honor to be a part of it at this time in history. Thank you, and God bless!

World Congress of Families Spokesman: 'Russia Is The Hope For the World Right Now'

Back in September, a number of American activists, including the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown , traveled to Moscow to take part in an international conference on “Large Families and the Future of Humanity” hosted at the Kremlin. The event, funded by a handful of close allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, had originally been planned as the annual convention of the Illinois-based World Congress of Families, but WCF dropped its official sponsorship after Russia’s incursion into Ukraine led the U.S. to place economic sanctions on several of the Russian leaders involved in the conference.

Nonetheless, the conference went right ahead as planned, with two leaders of WCF — communications director Don Feder and managing director Lawrence Jacobs — attending in their personal capacities and speaking at an opening press conference along with two of the event’s top Russian funders, Natalia Yakunina (wife of Putin ally Vladimir Yakunin) and Konstantin Malofeev.

In addition, Feder and Jacobs both had the chance to give speeches at the event. Feder, never one to be shy about his extremism, posted a transcript of his speech decrying the “sexual revolution” on the conservative website BarbWire in October.

Coincidentally, today, just as Glenn Beck was warning his Religious Right allies against siding with Putin in his anti-LGBT crusade and blasting WCF for having “bought Russia's salesmanship that they are the new global champion of Christianity,” we came across the English transcript of Jacobs’ speech, which pretty much reinforces Beck’s point.

After being introduced by Yakunina, who called him “our old friend and ally in pro-family movement,” Jacobs heaped praise upon Russia’s leaders for resisting European trends toward LGBT equality and abortion rights, saying, “I think Russia is the hope for the world right now.”

“Russian Eastern European leadership, I believe, is necessary to counter the secular, post-modern, anti-family agenda and replace want I’m calling the cultural Marxist philosophy that’s destroying human society, in particular destroying the family,” he said.

The “radical population control people” and “the radical LGBT groups” are staging a “Marxist takeover” of the West through developments like legalized abortion, liberalized divorce law, and the abolition of “sodomy” laws, he warned, leaving Russia to lead the “spiritual battle.”

“I believe that now that you’ve emerged from the seventy years of oppression, culturally you are healthier than much of the West,” he said.

In particular, I wanted to just talk about why I think Russia is the hope for the world right now. In particular…really, to the importance of the future of the family and to the future of civilization.

Russian Eastern European leadership, I believe, is necessary to counter the secular, post-modern, anti-family agenda and replace want I’m calling the cultural Marxist philosophy that’s destroying human society, in particular destroying the family. I can’t think of a place that’s experienced the destruction of the Marxism more than Russia after seventy years of destroying the family and the church. So this is something, I think, all of you understand.

What is happening now is a cultural Marxism. You defeated communism here in Russia, but we inherited a cultural communism, a cultural Marxism. Many Western nations may have economic freedom, political freedom or democracy, freedom of speech, but they’ve lost the freedom of education and culture. Our culture has been taken over by the Marxist in America and in the West. Let me explain.

So where does this leave us, what is causing all of these problems that we discussed so eloquently today and yesterday, why is it that the family is under attack? Well, I believe that really the cultural Marxism and socialism has replaced communism as the new attack on society. Really, the socialist revolution in the West has been greatly influenced by an Italian communist that maybe you don’t know of, Antonio Gramsci. Right in the thirties, he said in particular about the culture of the West, “If we can take over the family and the church, we can remove the barrier what stands as robust obstacles to a communist economical and political takeover.” So what he was saying is, “Look, we don’t need violent revolution, we need a cultural revolution.”

He proposed the takeover of the cultural institutions, the destruction of marriage and family, and the church. This would achieve what I’m calling cultural political correctness, which is what we see, where the minority rules the majority. The majority of people believe that the family is the fundamental unit of society, but we’ve been taken over by a minority of people, sometimes less than one percent of the population, that produces their agenda and their values.

So, this means that socialists have been working tirelessly in the West, and this includes, you know, the radical population control people, the radical LGBT groups. They’ve been working on a takeover of universities and various socialist institutions, and taking over the education, the media, the churches, and destroying any structure that stands in their way, which is the family.

How has this happened? Well, they devalued sex, they devalued life, they devalued marriage. And ultimately, the destruction of the family has become the focus of these socialists and their leftist ideology.

This should demonstrate what they’ve been able to do through the sexual revolution. I call it a timeline of a cultural takeover of the family and the church, a Marxist takeover.

Unfortunately, some of this begins in Russia, in 1920, when the communists legalized abortion at all stages of a woman’s pregnancy. And it wasn’t just that particular moment in time. Of course, it was then the development of the technology of abortion and spreading that across Europe and across the world, to the United States as well.

Then, to go further, prior to 1930, all Christian denominations – Orthodox, Catholics, Protestants – all believed the contraception was wrong, that the pill or any form of contraception was against God’s will. That changed in 1930, with the Anglicans.

And as I go forward to more modern times, we look at the promotion of pornography, the legalization of the birth-control pill, no-fault divorce. You can see the gradual loosening of moral values, Christian values, until, in 1973, the US Supreme Court and their famous Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in the United States.

And then we went beyond abortion to same-sex marriage, legalizing that in the Netherlands in 2001. And in 2003, we struck down the sodomy laws in the United States, which opened up same-sex marriage. And now we have to worry about polygamy and all kinds of other forms of marriage.

So why is it that Russia can combat what has really been largely a revolution in the West? Well, because you understand what the Marxists can do to culture and to society. And I believe that now that you’ve emerged from the seventy years of oppression, culturally you are healthier than much of the West. And what you need to do, I think, is really continue to share the values that make Russia strong, that made it strong historically.

There is also a spiritual element to this. This is a spiritual battle, and, I think, members of the church in Russia, members of civil society should think about a way to reverse what happened in 1920. Clearly, if we can’t respect the dignity of human life, how can we do… We can see what happens. All these other things happen. So we need to make sure that we’ve reversed the legalization of abortion, but not just legally. I think, spiritually, there needs to be a repentance. There need to be an asking of forgiveness, not only in Russia but throughout the world, but I think Russia can lead this. Abortion started here, it can end here.

I believe, if Russia apologizes, takes responsibility and changes its abortion laws, and tells the world why it’s doing it, why the focus on the natural family, and life, and the dignity of human at all stages, it will lead in a counter-revolution to what we’ve seen in the sexual revolution that spread so many horrible values throughout the West. In fact, I think only Russia can do this.

One final thought. It’s obviously a spiritual battle, but there is also a philosophical battle. And so when the church, I believe, takes the lead on this issue of abortion, there is one additional area we can’t forget, and that’s the philosophical ideas of what we are doing. The spiritual part is the most important, and then what follows C. S. Lewis spoke about. You know, people as C. S. Lewis, the great Christian writer, Anglican, he was in England, they said… Once he converted to Christianity, they said, “Well, why don’t spend your time evangelizing people, telling people about the good news of Jesus? Why not spend all of your time…” He was, you know, obviously, very intelligent man and excellent orator – why shouldn’t he go into the ministry, for instance? And he said this. He said, “To be ignorant and simple now – not to be able to meet the enemies on their own ground, would be to throw down our weapons, and to betray our uneducated brethren who have, under God, no defense but us against the intellectual attacks of the heathen. Good philosophy must exist, if for no other reason, because bad philosophy needs to be answered.” And I believe, friends, that good philosophy must come from Russia.

Thank you.

Bryan Fischer Falsely Claims President Obama Blamed Charlie Hebdo Victims For Their Own Deaths

We don't know what world Bryan Fischer is living in, but he seems to inhabit some parallel universe in which President Obama blamed the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre for their own deaths.

On his radio program today, Fischer was discussing allegations from the Florida Family Association that the FBI and the FAA had conspired a few months ago to censor their efforts to fly an banner around MetLife stadium accusing AIG of sponsoring jihad by advertising on Al Jazeera.

Somehow that sent Fischer off on a tangent in which he declared that because a White House spokesman once said that Charlie Hebdo had the "right" to publish a cartoon mocking Islam and Muhammad but that it might not be good "judgment," President Obama was "essentially saying we think capital punishment is the appropriate punishment for blasphemy."

"This is, in essence, President Obama's words: 'They really, in essence, have nobody to blame but themselves,'" Fischer ridiculously declared:

This is especially absurd considering that, just last week, Fischer himself literally suggested that the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack brought it upon themselves since the massacre was God's punishment for their blasphemy.

President Obama 'Is The Face Of Islam In America'

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Gordon Klingenschmitt interviewed Bill Warner, who runs the website PoliticalIslam.com, to get his thoughts about last week's terrorist attack in Paris. 

Eventually the conversation turned to Klingenschmitt's concern that President Obama is "promoting Islam with American tax dollars," which prompted Warner to declare that, under Sharia law, Obama is a Muslim, which makes him "the face of Islam in America."

"He always, as I say, chops wood and carries water for Muhammad," Warner said. "He clearly represents them in his foreign policy speeches. He represents them in his White House spokesmen. He is the face of Islam in America":

Watch Out: Islam, Socialism, Environmentalism Uniting To Kill Us All

Alex Jones invited WorldNetDaily columnist Lord Christopher Monckton onto “Infowars” yesterday to discuss everything from the Paris terrorist attacks to climate change, which the two agreed is a myth that was created to bring about an oppressive one-world government.

Monckton connected the dots between the two issues, alleging that radical Islamists, socialists and environmentalists are all coming together to kill billions of people in order to achieve the United Nations/Ted Turner objective of reducing the world’s population.

“What they want to do is reduce the population not by one billion but to one billion,” he said. “It’s now 7.2 billion, they want to cut the population by 6.2 billion.... It’s a conspiracy.”

“They are ganging up together, the totalitarians, Islam and socialism and environmentalism, worldwide, getting into bed together to destroy as many of the world’s population as they can,” he added.

Michael Ledeen: Obama Won't Condemn Radical Islam Because He Supports 'The Other Side'

Dr. Michael Ledeen, a “freedom scholar” at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who has written about the Paris terrorist attacks in Forbes and PJMedia, appeared on yesterday’s edition of “Sandy Rios In The Morning” to discuss President Obama’s reaction to the violence. According to Ledeen, Obama is an anti-American zealot “who did not want to be in Paris” for the demonstration against the attacks because he didn’t want to condemn radical Islam.

“He doesn’t like America and he doesn’t like us,” Ledeen told Rios. “He is a member of the generation that came out of an American school system that teaches our kids that America is the big problem in the world and that we are responsible for most of the world’s ills. And therefore he believes that the criticism of America by radicals, whether they are secular left-wing radicals or whether they are Islamist fundamentalist radicals, he thinks that their criticism is basically legitimate.”

He argued that Obama is in fact siding with the terrorists: “We have a war to fight and this president isn’t going to fight that war. This president is, if anything, on the other side. He doesn’t like us and doesn’t like the America that we grew up living.”

Ledeen also claimed Obama is “seeking an alliance” with Iran, which is ironic seeing that Ledeen was involved in the arms transfers to Iran while serving in the Reagan administration, as detailed in the Iran-Contra report.

Rios chimed in to allege that Obama supports “radicals” and committed treason. “We have an enemy within the walls of the White House,” she said.

BarbWire Pundit: 'Obama Stands With The Islamic Terrorists'

Right-wing commentator Sher Zieve took to BarbWire today to suggest that President Obama’s absence from a march in Paris condemning the Charlie Hebdo attacks proves that “Obama stands with the Islamic terrorists…not with the humans…and he always has.”

Zieve, who has previously claimed that Obama is a demon who worships Satan, believes that Americans should take to the streets, as the Egyptians did, to overthrow “Big Boss Obama” before he succeeds in his plan to “totally destroy the USA and subjugate its people with his growing Police State.”

Along with millions of others, I watched almost all the Western world’s leaders–save one–standing in Paris against Islamists and for the right to free speech after the malevolent and bloody onslaught. I thought it interesting and potentially stalwart but, then asked myself why didn’t these leaders stop the influx of ravenous and unrelenting Islam into their countries earlier? I also thought–as I suspect most if not all of the world leaders did–that Obama stands with the Islamic terrorists…not with the humans…and he always has. I hope all of the aforementioned leaders know that now.

Because he support [sic] the Islamic bloodlusters and the march didn‘t glorify him, Obama was a no-show and instead sent lackey Eric Holder–who made the statement that the Obama regime (aka syndicate) is “at war with lone wolf terrorists.” I guess that means they didn’t really care about the multiple terrorists performing attacks in Paris. Eric Holder looked bored and not at all pleased to be there. The Obama syndicate will not be swayed by what Big Boss Obama considers to be unimportant and petty attacks on our neighbors and allies while he is working to totally destroy the USA and subjugate its people with his growing Police State. Besides, as mentioned before, it wasn’t about him anyway and he wouldn’t be able to take his “selfies” with world leaders. Darn!



Like Yul Bryner in the Ten Commandments, Obama is now simply barking orders as to what will be done and which new laws he commands be effected. And–thus far– still no one is stopping him. I suggest that it’s long past time that We-the-People started using the muscles we, at least, used to have. How many countries’ people have fought against tyranny over the last five years, while we ignored our own? Now is the time, folks, as there will be no other unless we rise up and stop them. Congress and, disappointingly, even SCOTUS has shown that they want to be part of the class that rules over us. There is only one governmental branch larger than the ObamaGov…and that’s us. It’s time we started marching in earnest to stop the tyrants in their track. If Egypt can do it…why can’t we? So let it be written…so let it be done!

Rick Wiles: Centcom Twitter Hacking Proves Obama Is An 'Islamic Jihadist'

“Trunews” host Rick Wiles pointed to yesterday’s hacking of the U.S. Central Command’s social media accounts by supporters of the Islamic State as proof that President Obama is an “Islamic jihadist” and “enemy of the Republic” who secretly approved of the terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo office.

“I don’t know what it will take for the U.S. military and intelligence community leadership to wake up and realize that an Islamic jihadist is in the White House,” Wiles said on his program today. “As American citizens, we no longer have protection from the Muslims because they have infiltrated Washington and put one of themselves in the White House. Why do you think ‘Jihad Barry’ did not attend the massive march of people in Paris along with all of the other world leaders? It is because he is for the jihadists, he is not against them.”

“Barack Obama is a Muslim jihadist and this is akin to discovering that Franklin Roosevelt was a closet Nazi during World War II,” he said.

Allen West: Congress Must Ask Obama If He Supports Islamic Terrorists Or Freedom

Former congressman Allen West wants to make sure that the new GOP majorities in the House and Senate are put to good use, and what better way to do the people’s business than by asking President Obama whether he supports terrorism or freedom?

West, who now heads the conservative National Center for Policy Analysis, spoke to Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday about the need for the Republican-led Congress to expose Obama’s anti-American agenda.

“The most important thing that they have to do is evidence who Barack Obama is,” West said. “We have to put the president in the position to say of whose side are you on: Are you on the side of liberty and freedom or the Islamic terrorists? Are you on the side of the American people and true economic recovery or do you just want to continue to run around the country to talk about free community college tuition?”

Glenn Beck On Mike Huckabee: 'He Is A Liar To Your Face. He Is A Very Disingenuous Man'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck took a call from a listener who wanted to know why he has made "disparaging comments" about Mike Huckabee in the past and asked Beck to provide some specific evidence to support his obvious dislike of Huckabee.

Predictably, Beck kicked things off by labeling Huckabee "a progressive" and blasting him for supporting Common Core, but then also declared that Huckabee is a liar and "one of the most disingenuous men I have ever, ever met" because he is someone who cynically uses his faith for political purposes.

"He is Jeb Bush, hiding behind the cross," Beck said. "He is a liar to your face. He is a very disingenuous man":

FRC Spox: Oppose Gay Rights Like Protests Following Charlie Hebdo Attack

In an interview yesterday, the Family Research Council’s Travis Weber lauded the millions of people who attended marches in response to the terrorist attack at the office of Charlie Hebdo by likening their efforts to the campaign by Religious Right groups to repeal nondiscrimination ordinances that protect LGBT people.

Speaking with “Washington Watch” guest host Craig James about the attempt to rescind a nondiscrimination ordinance in Plano, Texas, Weber predicted that more people would get involved in the crusade to strip legal protections from the LGBT community, just as the Paris attack spurred countless people to take to the streets to defend the freedom of expression.

“I think it comes down to a connection that people make to their own freedom and their own lives and the way they’ve been living in freedom being threatened. When they realize that’s threatened, they care all of the sudden about the issues and get involved,” Weber said. “I think it’s important to take notice of several things going on currently here and overseas. Just recently we’ve seen in France over a million turn out in support of free speech and in solidarity with the publishers of the magazine that was recently the subject of the incident over there and this is something that people see their way of life being threatened.

“We have generally broad protections for free speech here at home yet we can’t be lax or lazy in protecting them and arguing for them and for their importance and we see these threats overseas; people need to understand that the same freedoms here at home hang in the balance and they need to be protected and fought for when people want to restrict others based on the content of their speech or their viewpoint on a politically unpopular topic. People need to see this and when they do, they’ll care.”

Of course, nothing in these non-discrimination ordinances curtail the freedom of speech.

GOP Rep: Gays And Obama Attacking Society, Bringing America Down

Before posting a bizarre tweet linking President Obama to Adolf Hitler, Rep. Randy Weber appeared on “Washington Watch” with Craig James of the Family Research Council to promote his anti-gay State Marriage Defense Act. The Texas Republican told James that President Obama and the gay community are launching an attack against traditional American values in order to bring the country down.

“We live in tough times, our society is under attack,” Weber said while criticizing the recent string of court victories for gay couples seeking marriage rights.

He said he hoped that Sen. Ted Cruz, the legislation’s sponsor in the Senate, would push for a vote to send the bill to the White House and expose “Barack Hussein Obama’s” anti-American agenda:

“We hope to move it forward. Of course, Barack Hussein Obama had the benefit of a blocking back called Harry Reid last time, so Harry Reid pretty much blocked everything off his desk and he didn’t have that kind of accountability. Now the American people are going to see exactly what he stands for. Is he intent on bringing America down? Just destroying all of our values? Or will he sign some of these things that Republican Congress is sending to him? We want him to stand up for America, less government, less taxes, make sure that the America you and I grew up in, Craig James, are the same one that our kids and grandkids are going to have. It just seems like it is getting further and further away.
