Anti-Choice Leader Explains Strategy Of 'Cutting Off Access To Abortion' By 'Going After' Clinics

The anti-choice movement has for the past several years focused, with some success, on ending access to legal abortion by regulating abortion providers out of existence. Many politicians and anti-choice groups have attempted to disguise the real motives behind such targeted regulations, which typically have no meaningful benefit to patients or providers but do force many clinics to close or incur unnecessary costs, by saying that they are merely trying to protect women’s health. However, some activists have not been shy about straight-forwardly discussing the movement’s strategy.

One of those activists is Eric Scheidler, the executive director of the Pro-Life Action League and son of Joseph Scheidler, one of the founders of the anti-abortion “rescue” movement.

In an interview with Christian broadcaster Jerry Newcombe yesterday, Scheidler discussed how he and his father have gone after abortion clinics in Illinois, explaining that they “go after these abortion clinics every way that we can” so that even as abortion remains legal, women will be left with no abortion clinics to go to.

The point is that we go after these abortion clinics every way that we can. We’re there present, praying and counseling and being a witness to the sanctity of life and a sign of contradiction at the abortion clinics. We go after them through state regulations and inspections, we go after them through laws like parental notification. … And we go after them for the way that they’re zoned. Everything we can do, we must do to try to shut down these abortion facilities because even though abortion is legal in this country, if there’s not an abortion clinic nearby, very often a woman will choose life for her child and that child will live. So cutting off access to abortion through these horrible abortion clinics is really very important.

Newcombe also asked Scheidler if he could envision a day when abortion would be illegal throughout the country. Scheidler answered that that is indeed his goal, but that first, America must reverse its “morals surrounding sexuality.”

We have to understand that abortion does not stand alone, it’s not an evil all by itself. Abortion as something socially acceptable and acceptable within our laws is a relatively new thing, and it comes as a result of a major breakdown of morals, especially morals surrounding sexuality. You can’t expect a culture that places sexual pleasure above almost any other value, that is continually pressing those buttons, constant titillation of sexual desire, that’s sexualizing everything about our culture, sexualizing our youth, etc. You can’t expect a culture like that to exist and also somehow not have legal abortion. Abortion is, in a sense, a crutch for that kind of culture. It becomes necessary, in a sense, because of the sexual morality that leads to so many unplanned pregnancies.

You know if abortion were to be illegal, were somehow to be made illegal tomorrow, it’s hard to imagine what the landscape would look like. So as we seek that day when abortion is finally banned in our country, we have to be thinking about the other things that need to be changed culturally, not just the services provided to women so that they won’t be seeking even illegal abortions, but also to instill a sense of self-respect, of respect for others, of sexual moderation and self-control. Those are all necessary ingredients. So it’s going to be a very difficult and, I think, very long victory path for us. I think we will do it, I think it’s inevitable that this evil will have to end someday, but there’s a great deal that needs to change about our culture.

'God's On Our Side': Alex Jones Hails Discredited Right Wing Activist James O'Keefe

James O’Keefe, the right-wing activist best known for his discredited attacks against the community service group ACORN, his failed attempt to break into then-Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office and recent laughable effort to manufacture a Hillary Clinton campaign finance scandal, is now directing his attacks at companies involved with Common Core, an academic standards effort with supporters and critics on both sides of the aisle.

Naturally, O’Keefe found a receptive audience in Alex Jones, speaking with the InfoWars broadcaster yesterday about his latest set of “sting” videos.

“We’re in a war,” Jones said, claiming that “the real battle for the republic” is in the homeland because “America is being taken down.”

“God’s on our side,” he told O’Keefe. “There is Providence. George Washington talked about it. But we have to get on the field. But when we get on the field, everything we do turns to gold.” He continued to pour out praise of O’Keefe, praising the activist for trying to stop liberals from taking over the U.S. and turning it into a Third World nation.

O’Keefe, who once likened his group’s activists to SEAL Team Six, said that while he wasn’t comparing himself to military service members, “I do think that people need to risk their lives domestically” to save America. He then insisted that he has been detained several times by the Department of Homeland Security and has gone “through hell doing this work.”

Theodore Shoebat Calls For SWAT Teams To Raid The Homes Of Gay Couples And Seize Their Children

Yesterday, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted a new video declaring that "dykes are criminals" and calling for SWAT teams to raid the homes of gay couples and seize their children.

Outraged by a report about a lesbian couple who had been charged with child abuse, Shoebat spent nearly a half-hour furiously ranting about how all gays are inherently criminals who need to be prosecuted by the state.

"Dykes are criminals," he stated. "Two dykes that are supposedly married, that's not marriage, that's a criminal partnership. That's an agreement between two criminals. We're gonna commit this crime, we're going to corrupt children, we are going to take the natural order and tell people to disobey it, we are going to cause a revolution against the natural order that God designed ... That's what these dykes are, they're just pure criminals. They're rebels. This is a revolution. We're not seeing love, we're not seeing marriage, we're seeing a revolution."

"I believe sincerely within my heart," he continued, "that if you have two dykes or two faggots who have children, those children are in an immense amount of danger. They are in danger of being raped, they are in danger of being molested, they are in danger of being assaulted, murdered, killed. And for the good of that child, the state needs to bust open the doors of those sodomites and confiscate those children. I really believe that within myself. If I had the power, I would send the SWAT team or the National Guard and I would say, 'Guys, there are the homes that we know for a fact have two fags and they have a child with them. Go in there, you arrest those two faggots and you take that child.' And the SWAT team would go in there, bust the door open, arrest the two faggots like the terrorists they are, and save that child from this tyranny. Because that's what this is, this is tyranny."

This is the same Theodore Shoebat who was featured alongside several congressmen and GOP presidential candidates in an anti-gay "documentary" produced by Janet Porter, who is now running for a seat in the Ohio legislature.

WND Pundit: Trump Can Rally A 'White Army' And The 'White Lives Matter Movement'

Yesterday, WorldNetDaily columnist Ilana Mercer praised Donald Trump for giving voice to members of the “invisible, white army” who are tired of being oppressed by “federal aggression” and immigrants who “have the run of your schools, hospitals, libraries, parks and workplace.”

“Indeed, we members of the informal White Lives Matter movement notice that poor whites in America are very badly off,” she wrote, adding that “this large, mostly white cohort is waiting on the ropes for … Donald Trump.”

WorldNetDaily, of course, is the same far-right, birther outlet that named Trump its “Man of the Year” in 2015. Trump will return the favor by agreeing to speak at an event in March honoring WorldNetDaily’s founder and birther movement leader Joseph Farah.

Omitted at last year’s Fox Business presidential debate Nov. 10 were two loudly whispered secrets. The one was Marco Rubio’s expensing the Republican Party for personal spending. The other: Terrifying data that a large segment of white America was … dying.

Most of us have come across emaciated, gaunt, poor white men and women in our communities; middle-aged, often younger whites standing on the curb, begging for change. Indeed, we members of the informal White Lives Matter movement notice that poor whites in America are very badly off.

But a political whiteout prohibits the candid discussion of their plight. Unless they’re being dubbed throw-away racists, bigots, or has-beens who can’t let go of white privilege – white, working-class America is invisible. It has been so for decades.

If you’re working-class and white, you’re invisible. You have been for decades. You used to be the backbone of the economy. No more. You’re still the backbone of the U.S. military, more likely to die in the service of The State in far-flung countries.

Your love of country is sanctioned provided it is confined to dying in the wars launched by Rome-on-the-Potomac. You may find belonging only by risking your life abroad in the service of strangers, or opening your home to them, stateside. If you survive the combat-to-coffin career path, your love of community will need to encompass a million immigrants, each and every year, who’ll have the run of your schools, hospitals, libraries, parks and workplace. Destined to fight against subsistence farmers in foreign lands, you find yourself harassed on your homesteaded land, at home, never free from federal aggression.

As a share of America’s adult population, Donald Trump’s invisible, white army likely forms less than 48 percent. To them could be added other whites who favor borders and hanker after closely-knit communities and such Burkean peculiarities. I would imagine ranchers Hammond and Bundy are eager to hear from the one candidate who has not called them terrorists.

This large, mostly white cohort is waiting on the ropes for … Donald Trump.

Kim Davis: SOTU Ignored The Christians Being 'Mashed Down, Literally' By Obama

Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, a hero of the Religious Right because of her attempt to prevent her county office from issuing marriage licenses following the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, got a spot at the State of the Union address on Tuesday, thanks to the Family Research Council and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

Davis was initially unresponsive about her reaction to President Obama’s address, telling a reporter simply that “it was a speech,” but went into a little more detail in an interview with EWTN’s Jason Calvi after the event.

Davis did have some words of praise for the president, telling Calvi, “I did agree with one remark that he made about how we have to stand strong, help those that are less fortunate, and I think that is the basis of the Christian faith is the brotherly love, you know?”

But she was less impressed with Obama’s reference to marriage equality. “He had made the statement that everybody was free to marry who they love, and, of course, that’s the stand that I stood again,” she said. “And it’s not, for me, it never was a gay or a lesbian issue. It’s about standing up for the word of the God and as God had defined marriage from the very beginning as between one man and one woman, and that’s what I stood for.”

When Calvi asked Davis about the president’s caution against anti-Muslim bigotry and prejudice, Davis responded that he should have instead talked about Christians like her who “are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally” by his policies.

“One of the things that he focused on was that we should not discriminate against Muslims or persecute them, but he never once said anything about the people of the Christian faith who are being so tried and tested and being mashed down, literally, with his agenda,” she said.

BarbWire Pundit: Obama Is Enslaving People, Unlike The Founding Fathers

Writing this week in BarbWire, Sher Zieve warns that the passage of the omnibus spending bill last month proves that Republicans in Congress have been unwilling to “remove the cancer” destroying the U.S., partly due to the fact that people are afraid “of being called a ‘racist’ if they oppose the country’s enslavement of its citizens with replacement of illegal ones and totalitarian leftist policies.”

Zieve, who has previously written about Obama’s dictatorial, anti-white, Islamic and satanic ambitions, urges readers to try and “pull our country out of the Luciferian Left morass” and to “rededicate this country to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and … return to the principles upon which this country was founded. For those who graduated high school after the 1960s, those principles do not and never did include slavery or suppression. Remember that the ‘new’ Obama-Principles do.”

With ongoing acts of patent lunacy—or the darker reason…collaboration—the Republican-controlled US Congress refuses to remove the cancer eating away at Washington D.C. just as the Democrats have done for decades. Instead, the aforementioned Congress seems to prefer the ultimate demise-for-lack-of-proper-care that will soon be the cause of death. One of the primary reasons used as an excuse is the now cliché false fear of being called a “racist” if they oppose the country’s enslavement of its citizens with replacement of illegal ones and totalitarian leftist policies.

Note…at some point almost all politicians become leftists in order to enrich themselves and they begin to view their constituencies as “the great unwashed masses” who are beneath them. They, then, begin to use any inane excuse to draw curious eyes away from what they’re really doing. And, at some point it no longer matters on which side they pretend to be, because it’s the side that solely enriches them.

After passing the “Omnibus” bill—which already includes all sorts of snakes and vermin including, but not limited to, fully funding Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare and the resettlement of Syrians “refugees” and other thousands of assorted Muslims into our country—our replacements—Speaker of the House and Boehner clone Paul Ryan patted himself on the back for passing another bill in the House which eliminates ObamaCare and defunds Planned Parenthood. Do you remember when Paul Ryan said that he’d wait to pass the omnibus bill until after a new POTUS is elected…then passed it in the middle of the night ala Harry Reid and the rest of the Marxist Dems? I watched the video (see second Source below) and even Ryan seems to have difficulty not laughing (watch his facial expressions) when he states more of his own rather apparent lies.

Should American citizens become involved in government, organizations such as Planned Parenthood abortuaries and a Bureau of Land Management gone rogue (and for all intents and purposes is now a mercenary institution reporting to the highest bidder) would not be allowed to exist. These—and others oppressive to the people that are now prevalent—would have been stopped in their tracks before their power became so great.

By now, most of us should be—and I believe are—fully awake to the clear and present dangers which face our country and us. More and more citizens are becoming active. Keep it up, grow you numbers and we might actually be able—with courage and lots of work—be able to pull our country out of the Luciferian Left morass. I don’t, however, believe we can do it with the vast majority of those currently in power. Nothing less than a sea change is required.

Another step—and I believe the most important if America USA is to survive in any form at all—is to rededicate this country to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to return to the principles upon which this country was founded. For those who graduated high school after the 1960s, those principles do not and never did include slavery or suppression. Remember that the “new” Obama-Principles do.

RNC's Dave Agema: 'Obama Uses Taqiyya' And Is A 'Socialist Dictator'

Former GOP state lawmaker Dave Agema represents Michigan as a national committeeman at the Republican National Committee, where he has used his post as a platform for voicing anti-gay, anti-Muslim and racist statements, prompting one Republican consultant to call him “the RNC’s David Duke.”

This week, Agema is attending the RNC winter meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, where introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Obama (it failed).

In a speech to the meeting, the text of which he later posted on his Facebook page, Agema declared that Obama is both a domestic enemy and a “socialist dictator” who, along with Hillary Clinton and Republicans who “have been co-conspirators in tyranny or treason,” must be stopped:

It's the RNC's duty to steer the GOP. We have allowed a socialist dictator in the White House and the RNC has done nothing to stop Obama nor encourage a feckless congress to act.

What this resolution does is encourages someone in congress to do the right thing. I don't buy the garbage that impeaching Obama will motivate the democrat base. This impeachment process will expose in the media-TV, radio, talk shows etc. how egregious the behavior of both Obama and Hillary has been. There comes a point when playing politics must yield to the more important issue of saving our republic from Obama and any future over zealous [sic] presidents.

The RNC is about to answer whether we stand for enforcement of the constitution or not. The RNC is about to set a precedent whether treason and tyranny are allowable and no separation of powers exist.

It will be the GOP that will be lynched for permitting tyranny to occur and not have attempted to stop it. We are seeing the overthrow of our constitutional republic and if the RNC does nothing, then we are part of the problem. If we do nothing, we are establishing a policy within the GOP that treason is NOT an impeachable offense. The yearning for success to beat our opponents is sought after, at all cost, even to the exception of the constitution itself. It won't work. If you think we have a chance to beat Hillary by sitting on our hands and do nothing, you are sadly mistaken.

Carter, Clinton and Obama were elected by the female voters and they are lining up behind Hillary, but they won't when she has been implicated as a co-conspirator of treason and tyranny for her work in the State Department.


Objections to such a resolution stem from ignorance of the process or they are attempting to protect a few of our own republicans that have been co-conspirators in tyranny or treason. It only takes 1 Rep to put this in, 20 yes votes in the judiciary of which 23 are republicans and 218 yes votes on the floor of which we have 247 republicans. This public display of their behavior will emasculate both Obama and Hillary for all the world to see.

There are 48 articles of impeachment in this resolution and supporting documents for every one. Obama can do even greater damage in the next year and he most certainly will, as been evidenced in his gun executive orders and spying on congress.

There are two ways to lose a country. One is from outside forces and the other is from within via tyranny. Choose this day what you stand for, our future depends on it. Our voting base is watching and thus far, they don't like what they see.

As a former military officer, fighter pilot and state rep, I took the oath of office to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, I hope by your vote today you do the same. Thank you."

Agema also suggested that Obama is a secret Muslim who “uses Taqiyya,” or an idea embraced among some Shiite Muslims that “a person who faces religious persecution can withhold the identity of their faith in order to avoid bodily harm or death.” Oddly, Agema thinks Obama is also aiding ISIS, which believes all Shiites should be put to death.

Now he talks about keeping us safe as he allows ISIS to enter via the refugee program and he weakens our military. He abuses the military with his useless ROE and our enemies do see our weakness. This guy is living in a bubble and is an excellent liar.

He claims he wants to go after terrorist networks, but doesn't allow our soldiers to utterly destroy them. He calls ISIS, ISIL which doesn't recognize Israel. I think Obama uses Taqiyya.

10,000 airstrikes with many coming back with their bombs and telling the enemy before he went after ISIS's oil trucks. What about Bengahzi [sic] that you allowed to occur whithout helping. Obama thinks he can solve the worlds [sic] problems. He causes them!

I cant [sic] watch anymore of this guys [sic] BS. Too many believe his lies based on a speech that is void of facts. For example, he claims to have stopped Iran from getting NUCs- [sic] he gave them $150 billion to complete their work with NUCs [sic]. I'm done- can't take it anymore!

Outside the meeting venue, Agema spoke with InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs about his claim that Michigan is on the verge of adopting Sharia law, asserting that judges already incorporate Sharia law in their rulings. He also alleged that refugees coming to the U.S. are waging “civilization jihad.”

Ted Cruz Touts Endorsement Of Anti-Gay Extremist Paul Blair

Ted Cruz is already boasting of the endorsements he has received from activists who have linked homosexuality to Ebola, violence, terrorism and train derailments, so it came as no surprise to see the Texas senator’s presidential campaign

Ted Cruz Hates 'New York Values,' Loves New York Money

Sen. Ted Cruz has started attacking Donald Trump, his main rival in Iowa, for having “New York values.” While Cruz hasn’t explained exactly what he means by that, he told Megyn Kelly that “the rest of the country knows exactly what New York values are.”

Of course, faux populism is nothing new from Cruz, who now duck hunts with the “Duck Dynasty” clan but at Harvard Law “refused to study with anyone who hadn’t been an undergrad at Harvard, Princeton, or Yale.” Nor is contempt for New Yorkers, as he voted against aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy but demanded federal aid for people affected by flooding in Texas.

But there is one thing Cruz seems to like about New York: money.

According to the Federal Election Commission, New York is the fourth biggest fundraising state for the Cruz campaign.

In fact, it was at a New York fundraiser for his campaign that Cruz told a pro-gay-marriage donor that he wouldn’t make opposition to marriage equality a top priority of his administration, seeming to contradict what he told Religious Right groups.

Robert Mercer, who lives in a Long Island suburb of New York, is “the main donor behind a network of four ‘super PACs’ supporting Mr. Cruz that reported raising $31 million just a few weeks into his campaign.”

Cruz’s wife works for the New York-based firm Goldman Sachs, the same firm that gave the Cruz family a big (unreported) loan during Ted’s Senate campaign and whose employees and PAC have been generous donors to his campaign.

Cruz’s new line about “New York values” is just more honest, unifying rhetoric from the candidate who repeatedly accuses President Obama of trying “to divide us, to try to tear us apart” rather than “looking for ways to bring us together, to unify us.”

Michele Bachmann: Protecting Gay People With Hate Crimes Laws Is 'Tyranny'

Right-wing psuedo-historian and Republican political operative David Barton recently released an 18-part DVD series called "Foundations of Freedom" that features Barton and various guests explaining everything from "the formation of American law and the judicial system to biblically-based economics, science, government [and how] our Founding Fathers used the Bible as a blueprint for America’s freedoms."

Among the guests featured in the series is Michele Bachmann, who was still a member of Congress at the time of filming, and who, in an episode that recently aired on TBN, declared that LGBT-inclusive hate crimes laws are a form of "tyranny."

"That's what's so brilliant about our form of government and God's form of government," Bachmann said, "that we are equal before the law. God's says He's not a respecter of persons, He's not partial, so why should we, why should government be partial? ... A creator God created us equal."

That discussion eventually led to Barton and Bachmann to lament the passage of hate crimes legislation back in 2009 that included protections against crimes based on sexual orientation, which Bachmann declared was tyranny.

"It's political correctness that rules the day," she said. "So when you're part of a favored group, then you get special benefits that nobody else gets. That's the very form of tyranny because when government supposedly gives something — government has nothing to give, they have to take it away from other people. So when they give it to that certain group, that means, by definition, they're taking it away from you."

The hate crimes law, which Barton and other anti-gay activists falsely claimed would lead to the imprisonment of pastors who preach from the Bible, did not "give" anything to specific groups nor take anything away from anyone else, but merely added sexual orientation and gender identity to other characteristics covered by existing hate crimes statutes, such as gender, race, religion, disability and national origin.

Mike Huckabee: Hillary Clinton May Use Massive Voter Fraud To Win

Mike Huckabee, who in his quest for the GOP presidential nomination has been touting his record of having “consistently fought the Clinton machine” in Arkansas and “lived to tell about it,” spoke with Breitbart News yesterday about how Bill and Hillary Clinton are total liars and how only he has the expertise to defeat them.

After referencing the Monica Lewinski scandal and false and unproven claims about Hillary Clinton’s response to the Benghazi attack, Huckabee floated the prospect of Clinton using voter fraud in order to win the presidential election.

“I always said in Arkansas that I had to get more votes than normal because I had to overcome the cemetery votes,” he said. “One of the reasons I’m a committed Christian is because I believe in the resurrection. I saw it every Election Day, people coming out of the grave to go vote, and if you don’t think voter fraud and every trick and the book will be used, then you have never played in that arena before.”

Tom DeLay Says There Are Legitimate Questions About Ted Cruz's Eligibility To Be President

Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax TV program yesterday to discuss the news of the day, during which he voiced his displeasure that Congress allowed President Obama to deliver his State of the Union address and declared that there are legitimate questions regarding Ted Cruz's eligibility to be president.

DeLay kicked things off by declaring that he was "a little upset that the Congress even invited [Obama] to come give the State of the Union" because "he's a lawless president" and so Congress "should have disinvited him." 

Eventually, the topic of Donald Trump's "birther" attacks on Ted Cruz came up and DeLay made it clear that while he is not defending Trump and "would never vote for him," the questions about Cruz's eligibility are serious and something that Cruz needs to address.

"I gotta say, I've had this problem ever since Cruz announced," DeLay stated. "There is a difference between the definition of natural born and naturalization and it has not been settled by any branch of government. So I think Cruz needs to address this in some way because I think it is a cloud right now in Iowa." 

When Malzberg asked if Cruz should take the issue to the courts, DeLay responded that "that's probably the most expedient way to do it."

"He's going to the courts if he's the nominee," DeLay stated. "The Democrats will use every avenue available to them, they sued me over a ballot issue. They'll sue him. He'll end up in the courts one way or another."

'I'd Really Like To See You As President': Alex Jones Hails Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., appeared on Alex Jones’ radio program today, where he tried to win the bizarre conspiracy theorist back from his Republican presidential rival Donald Trump, who lavished praise on Jones last month. 

Paul, who has appeared on Jones’ show several times before, urged InfoWars viewers to demand that the Republican National Committee allow him on the main stage during Thursday’s Fox Business Network debate, which he is currently boycotting because he was placed in the undercard debate.

Jones said that Paul could defeat Trump, who he said is riding a wave of anti-government resentment.

“How do we get you elected president?” he asked. “I know there’s a lot of time left and folks thought Trump would fade but I think really getting aggressive is the way to go. I don’t claim to be the big political guru here, sir, but I’d really like to see you as president.”

Paul insisted that Trump isn’t a true conservative, citing his differences with Trump on the issue of eminent domain.

“I know you’re the statesman that would make the perfect president,” Jones told Paul, wondering “how we could catapult you back to the lead.”

Media Matters, which first highlighted Paul’s appearance today on Jones’ program, pointed out that “Paul attempted to downplay his alliance with Jones,” whom he once thanked “for being a vital part of his 2010 Senate campaign.”

Jones said on the air last year that he hoped Paul would win the GOP nomination for president and that he was confident that Paul would “probably end up being president if we turn this country around” and was only trying to moderate his image because he is “playing politics.”

Oath Keepers Head: Obama Wants 'Dead Cops' In Oregon Standoff

Oath Keepers head Stewart Rhodes has come out against the takeover of a federal building in Oregon not because he disagrees with the cause of the militia groups that are occupying the building, but because the people who they claim to be helping — ranchers Dwight and Steven Hammond — don’t want them there and also because he thinks that the groups have put themselves at a strategic disadvantage in any potential clash with the government.

Rhodes expounded on his views in an interview with “The Common Sense Show,” a “Patriot” movement program, last week, saying that the Oregon standoff risked giving the federal government “what they would consider the eye candy of dead cops killed by gun owners,” which would then give them cover to take away everyone’s guns.

Rhodes and the show’s hosts, Dave Hodges and James White, spent quite a bit of time discussing the logistics of a civil war if the military and police officers were to turn on the federal government in retaliation for an overreach on guns. (Rhodes’ group is made up primarily of ex-military and law enforcement personnel.)

White asked Rhodes what percentage of the military he thought would turn on the government “when the call comes out from Obama, for example, to confiscate guns and maybe fire on American people.” Rhodes responded that the government is imposing gun restrictions in a more incremental manner now but that if the government’s move was “taking all guns,” then a great number of the military would turn against them and “our greatest danger at that point would be a military coup.”

Hodges had a follow-up question: “If Obama does make a full-out move and if a military coup is in the cards, do you think that Obama will resort to the use of UN troops, specifically the Russians and the Chinese, to subjugate Americans and put down any rebellion?”

Rhodes responded that Obama’s use of foreign troops to quash a rebellion would be “the greatest gift” he could give the “resistance” because then “it would just piss off every other American.”

This led White to ask if the government was inflating statistics on the number of police officers who are shot on duty in an attempt to “incite incidences between the police and the citizens” because the “powers that be” want to “throw them out in the front lines and have them chewed up first in their big plan.”

“Of course, that’s what they want,” Rhodes responded. “They would love to have what they would consider the eye candy of dead cops killed by gun owners. That would give them the great PR coup of being able to point to that and say, ‘See, this is why we have to have more gun control.’”

“This is what I’m worried about, why I was upset about what was happening in Oregon,” he explained, “is that they’re potentially going to give them that gift. You might wind up with not just dead patriots out there but also dead highway patrolmen and sheriff’s deputies and federal agents. And so they’ll use that, you can bet, of course they will.”

Bryan Fischer Rips Nikki Haley For Embracing 'Sodomy-Based Marriage And The Entire Homosexual Agenda'

Bryan Fischer was "grossly disappointed" in Nikki Haley's Republican response to last night's State of the Union address and spent two segments of his radio show today ripping the South Carolina governor as a feckless "toady" and a "lackey" for the Republican establishment.

Fischer was particularly outraged that Haley had dared to say that Republican "would respect differences in modern families, but we would also insist on respect for religious liberty as a cornerstone of our democracy."

"What does she mean by that?" Fischer asked. "She means that the Republican Party has officially embraced sodomy-based marriage. That's what that means. The Republican Party has officially embraced sodomy-based marriage and the entire homosexual agenda." 

"You parse that," he continued to fume, "we're not going to invest one ounce of energy as a party, as ruling-class Republicans, we're not going to invest one ounce of energy in fighting to protect natural marriage. We're not going to invest one ounce of energy to try to preserve the right of children to be raised by a mom and a dad. We know from the research, it's a form of child abuse for a child to be raised in a same-sex household. It is a form of child abuse; all of the best in social research confirms that and here is Nikki Haley saying we're not going to fight for those children, we're not going to fight for the children that are subjected to a form of child abuse by being raised in a same-sex household."

Ted Cruz Touts Endorsement Of Extremist Phil Robertson Of 'Duck Dynasty'

Ted Cruz is out with a new ad today featuring reality TV star Phil Robertson, including footage of the two hunting together.

The “Duck Dynasty” patriarch turned into a conservative hero when he made a series of racist and anti-gay statements in an interview with GQ magazine, causing A&E to briefly suspend him from his family’s show on the network.

Robertson told GQ that black people were better off under Jim Crow — “singing and happy,” “pre-entitlement, pre-welfare” — than they are today. He also likened gay people to people who have sex with animals, saying that gay people’s minds must be warped by sin, because how else would they not be attracted to vaginas.

This controversy helped launch Robertson’s career in the conservative speaking circuit, where he went on to attack transgender and gay people; falsely claim that “110 million Americans now have a sexually transmitted illness,” which he blamed on hippies; blame Nazism on the lack of Christianity in Germany; and lay out his plans to fight ISIS: “Either convert them or kill them.”

In one speech, Robertson fantasized about an atheist family being brutally raped, dismembered and murdered in order to prove a point about how Americans need to follow God’s laws.

Robertson also believes that liberals in the U.S. are pawns of Satan who are worse than the Nazis because “they champion perversion, they champion murder, aborting their children and they are champions of lies.”

And now he is just one of the many far-right extremists whose endorsement has been welcomed by Cruz’s presidential campaign.

Sandy Rios: Pray That Obama Won't Seize Total Power

Add Sandy Rios of the American Family Association to the growing list of conservatives who believe President Obama may try to remain in office after his second term ends.

A listener called into Rios’ American Family Radio program this morning to predict that “Obama is not going to step down” from office, much like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, because “he’s going to enact martial law” and possibly stoke a “civil war.”

Rios, naturally, agreed with the listener’s assessment, suggesting that Obama may follow Chávez in seizing complete control over the government through “democratic means.”

“Your warning is very justified,” she said. “I had a South American leader who was teaching me these things who said, ‘This is what we see Obama doing from a distance, the very same thing, the method that’s being taught by — ,’ I don’t know exactly who wrote it down but Fidel Castro was in the center of all of it, this new way of taking over governments. So the warning that you give is very justified.”

She ended by agreeing that we should all pray for Obama not to grab total power.

Jesse Lee Peterson: We're In A 'Race War' And Only A Real Republican Like Trump Can Stop It

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson joined “Breitbart News Daily” today to promote his new book, “The Antidote,” where he warned that America is in the midst of a “race war” and that the election of a Democrat or a “RINO Republican” as president would only worsen it.

Peterson, who is black, told the program’s host, Stephen Bannon, that “over the last seven years, Steve, black Americans have — not all, but many of the young black folks have—been going around the country, knocking out white people, raping them, killing them, robbing them,” while Obama administration has done nothing because “they don’t care about white Americans.”

If “Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders or any of those RINO Republicans” are elected president this year, he warned, “it’s over for our country, the moral values are out of the window and the races will be divided, we could end up having a race war on our hands.”

He quickly added, however, that “we already have” a race war that’s “happening to white folks by so-called people of color and especially black people.”

Earlier in the interview, Bannon asked Peterson to respond to charges that Donald Trump is racist. Peterson responded that Trump “is not a racist, he doesn’t hate anyone,” and that it in fact is the people who think Trump is racist who “are the ones who are hateful.”

He went on to contrast Trump with Obama, whom he said is “an evil man” and showed “more concern for the Muslim than he did for the American people” in his State of the Union address last night
