Jim Garrow & Pete Santilli Now Openly Calling For Military Coup Against Obama

Jim Garrow brought his tall tale about President Obama trying to murder him to The Pete Santilli Show on Friday, where he also plugged the anti-Obama Operation American Spring. Santilli, the radio host who called for the murder of Obama and for Hillary Clinton to be “shot in the vagina” and has advocated for violence against the government, said that a national strike and even a military coup is necessary to bring down the Obama administration.

“I’m not calling for — well, yes I’m calling for the military to restore our Republic. Is it a military coup? I would say that it’s probably the most orderly fashion to do this,” Santilli told Garrow, who responded that it would take just “three percent of the population to rise up” and “control the country.”

Santilli: That change that we’re referring to, and I do have hope that it could be done if we have the numbers and we do have the numbers, if 300 million people who we could potentially get to rise up and if we had them all standing in the streets, standing still with a national strike and shut the economic system down, it cuts off the lifeblood of the elite, they no longer have that wealth flow. But that change, because we’ve spent decades ignoring this, they’ve been preparing for this for tens of years, for the past thirty or forty years internally to use all of these tactics that we’ve used to save the entire world, to police the world, to spread freedom throughout the world, now all of these tactics are being used against us by domestic enemies. But I think that that change must come forcefully, it has to happen in a short period of time. I say forcefully in that we need to abruptly let Obama know, it is time for you to go, you need to resign, you need to leave.

We have an opportunity here where our military commanders can affect arrests on these criminals. Do we not? Do you think that’s going to happen? I’m not calling for — well, yes I’m calling for the military to restore our Republic. Is it a military coup? I would say that it’s probably the most orderly fashion to do this. But don’t you agree that it must be a forceful, abrupt change. It can be peaceful but it has to happen in a short period of time, doesn’t it?

Garrow: I believe it should, I believe it could, I believe it may, but I also believe this: three percent of the population, that’s all it took at the very beginning of this Republic. It was only three percent that actually fought for freedoms and the Republic and the new nation, only three percent. All we need is three percent of the population to rise up now and we can control the country.

Santilli agreed with Garrow’s call for guerilla warfare against Obama and urged Americans to participate in Operation American Spring, a rally calling for the president’s overthrow through potentially violent means.

While he alleged that it is actually government officials who want violence in order “to use all of their ammunition and equipment they’ve been building up for decades now,” Santilli urged people to “take care of business,” just like the Marines.

Garrow said that that Operation American Spring is “expecting 30 million people” to gather in Washington D.C. to demand Obama’s ouster, an event he said is necessary because the president is murdering people.

Garrow: It’s called Operation American Spring and it springs from that whole notion of what was going on with the Egypt groups, the people in Egypt rising up and saying ‘hey we want a return to freedom and not to a repressive Muslim regime.’

Santilli: Where is this going to take place? It’s on May 16.

Garrow: It’s on May 16 and it’s going to be in the Mall. They’re expecting 30 million people. There’s never been a gathering as large as they’re predicting for this event.

Santilli: Wow. That’s something that we can—actually we all need to get behind. We have no choice at this point and time. We have no choice, no alternative. As a former United States Marine, we Marines that are trained to lash out in a very special way, like in Fallujah. If you send the Marines in, they take care of business and it’s not by throwing potpourri everywhere. But I’ve learned my way through this that we have to take and exhaust every possible peaceful means to take back our Republic, we must do that because they want nothing more than for us to fire a first shot because that will allow them to use them to use all of their ammunition and equipment they’ve been building up for decades now. I think that we can, if we have a grand awakening such as the May 16 event, this Operation American Spring, that we have an opportunity to really just stand in the Mall, stand in the streets, let our voices be heard and tell them to vacate their offices.



Santilli: Guerrilla warfare is the potential that may come about if they try to test our resolve, isn’t it? They need to know that we’re prepared and they probably will test us, won’t they?

Garrow: Well the Second Amendment right is clearly that area where they’re going to push, push the wall as it were and see, will this wall crumble or will this be a strong wall? Will the public react one way or will they react another? They’ve already done some testing and frankly we have not done well. Unfortunately, they’ve come in and they’ve shot people, they’ve killed people.

Robertson: Climate Change Is A Myth Created By Money-Hungry Scientists

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson claimed that the recent cold snap in North America and a ship stuck in Antarctica prove that climate change is nothing but a myth. Of course, both of his assertions are extremely dubious. While the New York Times notes that “97 to 98 percent of working climate scientists accept the evidence for human-induced climate change,” Robertson claimed that the scientists are merely lying to make money…something Robertson would never do.

“It’s getting warmer in Jupiter—and they don’t have any SUVs driving around in Jupiter—it has nothing to do with greenhouse gases it has to do with the action of the sun, there’s either two much sun or not enough sun,” Robertson said. “Think about how much money is involved. It’s money, they’re going to get a river of money.”

“Then you have politicians who want to take control and the progressives always want control, just like with health care, they want control; the EPA in America wants control of all of our energy.”

Watch:

Robertson also lashed out Secretary of State John Kerry, who he claims is inviting “the wrath of Almighty God” by engaging in Mideast peace talks.

“I think he ought to stay home, it might be good for him. He’s got a rich wife and a lot of money, he ought to spend some of it and do it at home and leave the Jews alone.”

Beck: 'I'm Not The Evil Conservative Monster They Say I Am'

As anyone who watches Glenn Beck's radio and television programs with any regularity can tell you, the messages delivered by Beck can vary widely from day to day, depending on Beck's mood and worldview at any given moment. One day, Beck is all "let's just love one another and treat everyone with respect and dignity" and then the next day (or even later on the same program) he is railing against progressives and those with whom he disagrees as the root of all evil today and throughout history.

On last night's program, Beck was in one of his Kumbaya moods while discussing the remark he made a few weeks back that he'd "stand with GLAAD" against the vicious anti-gay bigotry being stoked in Russia, saying that he was rather surprised that other people were shocked that he would take such a stance.

"This isn't a gay issue; it's a human issue," Beck declared, approximately two minutes into this clip. "I am a human who lives and breathes just like the next guy ... I have a family. I like to laugh. I like to play with my kids. I like to watch a good movie; sometimes I see too many bad ones. I'm not angry. I'm not the evil conservative monster they say I am. And get this one, I don't think they're the monster either":

Of course, this might be easier to believe if just a few months ago Beck hadn't literally called Michelle Obama "a monster":

'21st Century Creationism' Same As The Old Creationism

‘Creation In The 21st Century,’ a TV show that premiers tomorrow on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, hopes to put an edgy, modern spin on Creationist doctrine.

The host, David Rives of WorldNetDaily, claims that unlike Creationists, “Darwinian evolutionists believe, by faith, in the unproven theories of man, therefore their conclusions are also based on a belief rather that fact.”

“The Biblical account of creation as found in the first chapter of the Bible, the foundation upon which the whole Biblical record is based, is being gradually eroded away by unproven theories of evolution – not by empirical science, but by highly interpretive theories, presented by those who reject the God of the Bible,” explains David Rives Ministries. “The question arises: Does empirical science, observable and repeatedly demonstrable findings, prove the theories of Darwinian evolution to be true and the Biblical account to be false? The answer is emphatically no.

“The unproven theories of evolution that are being presented rely heavily on the interpretation of data – ‘ideology’ or ‘worldview,’” Rives explains. “Those who believe the Bible to be true see sedimentary layers of geological formations to be an indication of a worldwide flood in Noah’s day. Those who believe in the theories of evolution view the same geological layers as confirmation of millions of years of gradual deposition. The bottom line is that no one was there to witness the events responsible for producing what we see.

“Those who trust in the Biblical record believe, by faith, that ‘Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith’ (Hebrews 11:7),” Rives continues. “Darwinian evolutionists believe, by faith, in the unproven theories of man, therefore their conclusions are also based on a belief rather that fact. Darwinian evolution is a faith-based religion in opposition to the words of Scripture, which for thousands of years has been received by Bible believers as the inspired word of the Creator Himself.

“I believe that when we take a look at all the facts, it takes more faith to believe in evolution by random chance than it does to believe in the literal Genesis account,” Rives concludes.

Paul Vallely's Plan To Oust Obama & Bring America Together

WorldNetDaily today ran a glowing profile of former general and Fox News pundit Paul Vallely, who is calling for the overthrow of the Obama administration and a citizen’s arrest of the president. Vallely told WND that he simply wants to end partisan scuffles in Washington…by holding a “national vote of no confidence” against Obama.

Vallely quotes “a prominent Washington, D.C., insider with whom Stand Up America is coordinating –and who prefers to remain under the radar for the moment while conferring with potential House co-sponsors on both the basic rationale and the detailed content of such a House Resolution of no confidence” as offering the following justification for this novel course of action:

“First, in most of the world’s so-called ‘democracies’ – actually, multi-party constitutional republics – a formal vote of ‘no confidence’ by the Lower House suspends or greatly limits the governing authority of the party in power and, in a ‘recall’ of sorts, mandates new elections within 30-60 days,” the insider reportedly reasons. “Although we have no such instrument in our Constitution or in existing law, there is nothing to prevent its use as a comprehensive de facto indictment and conviction for contempt of Congress, violations of oath of office and of the Constitution itself – for all of the reasons stated in such a resolution.

“Second,” he reasons, “it would be much easier to cosponsor [than impeachment articles], to be formally adopted by the House and to achieve what might be called Obama’s ‘conviction without eviction’ – in which wholesale repudiation by the House, loss of control of the Senate and a substantial diminution of power and influence during his remaining time in office would be the penalties.

“We know there is no legal standing in a vote of ‘no confidence’ that would come of this act, but at least one thing will certainly occur: We take back the power of discourse,” the insider contends. “What do we do? We conduct a national ‘vote of no confidence.’”



Vellely contends the vote also would defuse some of the partisan finger-pointing that infects not only D.C. but the entire country.



“The House of Representatives must follow our lead and take up a resolution of no confidence,” the general contends.

Vallely’s calls to action have been immensely popular among tea party organizations that are seeking a way to restore the rule of law to Washington.

Swanson & Buehner Wonder Why The Rose Bowl Parade Didn't Include A Float With A Gay Person Being Stoned To Death

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio were upset about a float at the Rose Bowl parade that included a married gay couple which, despite nasty attacks from anti-gay activists, went off without incident (and even won an award). Buehner was perplexed by the fact that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation sponsored the float, saying that its “pro-homosexual propaganda” would “spread AIDS.”

He added: “I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.”

Swanson: They’ll also witness a controversial same-sex wedding, courtesy of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. According to the Pasadena Star News, a pair of homosexual hairstylists will ‘marry’ along the parade route while riding a wedding cake-shaped float sponsored by the AIDS group.

Buehner: This is an AIDS group? This is a group that’s against AIDS? They’re not trying to spread AIDS right? I mean, if you are trying to spread AIDS you would have pro-homosexual propaganda but if you’re trying to stop it….

Swanson: They may be serving lemonade too as part of the event, I hope not but maybe.

Buehner: I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.

Swanson: I think that would be rejected by the Rose Bowl parade committee.

Buehner: Well what if the stones were just made like of flowers and flower pedals?

Swanson: I don’t know if they’d allow that or not. Anyway ladies and gentlemen, this is another instance in which the degradation of our society is going mainstream.

Later in the broadcast, Swanson said that the gay community is “coming after Christians” and will have them “burned at the stake.” He described the fight as a “battle between good and evil,” warning “Christians will be destroyed by the other side” unless the government begins to “prosecute homosexuality, especially public acts of homosexuality.”

They are coming after Christians and if there is 45% of Christians in America or 45% of Americans who disagree with homosexuality or homosexual marriage, they will lose their jobs. That’s the goal, to make sure they lose their jobs, to make sure that they are persecuted, to make sure that they may even be burned at the stake. I don’t know what the whole agenda is but it seems to me that this may be a battle between good and evil and evil will not tolerate good. Good may tolerate evil to some extent but I think also we have to draw lines ourselves and encourage the civil magistrate to prosecute homosexuality, especially public acts of homosexuality. When Christians are a little wimpy addressing the issue of homosexuality, get ready friends, Christians will be destroyed by the other side.

Beck Teases Pre-Election Conservative Summit with Hannity, Levin, & Limbaugh

Before he left on his holiday vacation, Glenn Beck hinted at some sort of "conservative summit" that would bring together Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh in the summer of 2014. Today, Beck returned from vacation and discussed the event in a bit more detail, announcing that Hannity has already agreed to participate and is reaching out to Levin, and that the event will probably take place in June at some venue yet to be announced.

What appeared to please Beck most about this planned gathering is that it will take place shortly before the mid-term elections, with Beck and his co-hosts sarcastically musing about how coincidentally fortuitous if would be to "have a massive gathering somewhere right before the mid-terms" at which the conservative movement could come together in unity just before the elections.

"It would be really sad for the other side," said co-host Pat Gray:

Of course, just before the last election, Beck was confident that Mitt Romney would win because "God is not neutral in [the] freedom of all of mankind" and all the Tea Party and prayer rallies were just like what the Founding Fathers did to create this nation.

Erik Rush: Government Officials Should Be 'Hanging From D.C. Like Fruit'

WorldNetDaily’s Erik Rush has been hankering for an anti-Obama revolution for quite some time and on his radio show last week said that officials serving in the Obama administration and Congress should be “hanging from D.C. like fruit.”

Rush was talking to Jim Garrow, the right-wing hoaxer who told Rush that he survived an assassination attempt that was “payback” from President Obama. The two once again insisted that elected officials like Obama have merited the death penalty for their treasonous crimes.

“When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows,” Garrow said.

Garrow: There’s payback and there’s payback to people that are readily gotten to and in this case I think I’m one of the people that has just been paid back, or the attempt was made to pay me back. What I’ve done that would be considered wrong by Mr. Obama is I’ve spoken truth on a number of issues where it was important that the American public understand how they’ve been hoodwinked, how they’ve been lied to, how they’re safety has been compromised, how national security has been compromised and how Obama himself has been a traitor and been involved in treason against the Republic, for which you know the penalty is death.

Rush: Yes, yeah we know that. Yet the left has had a lot of fun with that of course because they interpret that as our advocacy thereof but they twist things anyway so…

Garrow: All we’re advocating is the rule of law.

Rush: Yeah.



Garrow: When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows when it really is shown that self-interest was their interest, not the promise they made to the people.

Rush: I’ve said before that if you had the founders or people who were of the mindset of the founders in power right now overnight that Congressmen, government officials and appointees would be hanging from D.C. like fruit.

Garlow: Christians Are Experiencing 'Full-Blown Persecution Like We Have Not Seen In America'

Jim Garlow was the guest on "Wallbuilders Live" today discussing the Religious Right's favorite topic at the moment: the supposed persecution of Christians in America.

Garlow declared that Evangelical Christians are currently experiencing "full-blown persecution" and warned that if it continues, the Christian church might eventually be entirely shut down by the government and forced underground:

If you are an Evangelical Christian, it's a full-blown persecution like we have not seen in America. We now are beginning to wear a badge of honor that we do not want to wear and that kind of persecution that we find in the rest of the world, we're now experiencing it here and it has enormous implications for the future.

I don't know what's ahead; I'm not going to try and predict the future but I know where it could potentially go and that would be where the government leans on churches so severely, so strongly, not only ripping away their tax exemption which, I assume, many churches could not survive that and the loss of buildings when you don't hire practicing homosexual pastors or you don't perform homosexual weddings and the church is forced officially underground. That could be where we head.

Porter: 'The Tide Has Turned Against The Homosexual Agenda'

Janet Porter believes that God is behind the uproar surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, who was temporarily suspended after making homophobic and racist comments in an interview with GQ.

Porter told the conservative outlet CNSNews on Friday that the controversy was part of God’s plan to fight gay rights. She called Robertson’s reinstatement a “turning point,” adding that “the tide has turned against the homosexual agenda.”

“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” she continued. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in.”

Indeed, it is pretty sad that Porter has to resort to talking about the plight of a reality TV show star to avoid actual polling data on gay rights.

Thanks to Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, Bible-believing Christians “ended 2013 on a victory,” says Janet Porter, president of Ohio-based Faith2Action (f2a).

“This is the turning point, thanks to the courage of Phil Robertson,” Porter told CNSNews.com. “The tide has turned against the homosexual agenda, and the message is that the only way to keep our freedom is to use it.”



“What I saw happen for the first time in this debate is that Phil Roberston [sic] asserted his freedom and America stood with him. This was the biggest breath of fresh air since Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” she added, calling Robertson’s reinstatement “a real game-changer.”

“God uses the unlikely to confound the wise,” Porter added. “I love how God can use somebody – it doesn’t matter what area they are in. This guy chose duck hunting over professional football. He used his God-given talent to come up with a duck call that leads to the # 1 cable show and he suddenly has more prominence and influence and a bigger platform than any football star. And all America rises up to stand with him.”



“The biggest danger to Christianity is the spiral of silence,” Porter added. The homosexual lobby “seeks to silence us with name-calling and threats. If they are allowed to silence the truth, they will silence the Gospel. If you care about the Gospel, you need to speak up now.”

Knight: GOP Can Win If It Runs Against Evolution

The American Civil Rights Union’s Robert Knight, who has been encouraging Republicans to run on social issues such as hostility to abortion rights and opposition to LGBT equality, now thinks the GOP should campaign on denying the existence of evolution.

Citing a Pew poll which shows that belief in evolution has plummeted in the GOP and is now shared by only a minority of Republicans, Knight told the American Family Association’s One News Now that “Republicans have a great opportunity” to expose the “lies that liberals have told over the years” and begin “questioning evolution more than ever.”

He also warns that a belief in evolution “leads to terrible things like socialism and communism and fascism and Nazism and the more extreme forms of liberalism in this country.”

Knight should take heart that Republicans have been working to undercut the teaching of evolution for decades, and we here at Right Wing Watch hope the GOP embraces this foolproof political strategy. "Evolution is at the core of a left-wing, secular, humanist worldview that has been breathing down everybody's necks in America for years [and telling us that] the best we can do is empower government to make our decisions for us," he offers. "That leads to terrible things like socialism and communism and fascism and Nazism and the more extreme forms of liberalism in this country."

The political commentator is encouraged that more Republicans reject the concept – and believes it could bode well for the GOP at election time later this year.

"The Republicans have a great opportunity to say Look, we've witnessed the collapse of a lot of lies that liberals have told over the years, and now we're questioning evolution more than ever as a basis for people's worldviews," Knight suggests. "So the dynamics are fascinating – and I think they could add up to an enormous conservative revival in this country."

'Operation American Spring' Claims Support From 'High Ranking Military Leaders'

The organizer of a May 16 rally calling for President Obama’s overthrow claims that he has the support of “a number of high ranking military leaders” who will assist in “a gigantic ‘movement to action’ in D.C.”

Col. Harry Riley, who is putting on the event with the backing of Jim Garrow and former general Paul Vallely, wouldn’t be the first conservative activist to call for military action against Obama.

Riley told Renew America’s Sher Zieve that he hopes for an Egyptian-style uprising to bring an end to “the tyrannical, dictator like regime that is taking American into the abyss.”

Sher: Thanks so much for being here, today, Col. Riley. You have taken on quite a task with "Operation American Spring" that has now gone viral on the Internet. Would you tell the readers what inspired you to begin the program, which is designed to lead toward the occupation of Washington D.C. in May?

Col. Riley: Five years of America screaming for some resolution from the tyrannical, dictator like regime that is taking American into the abyss....we've shuffled paper to congress, the media, town halls, every conceivable avenue to no avail. America is sinking desperately closer to a dictatorship...Barack Obama has no intention of adhering to the US constitution. The people of Egypt gave me inspiration...they said "enough is enough," took action by the millions to reach a solution. Their model is applicable to America as we find ourselves in an undesirable, tyrannical regime.....we are not modeling the Egyptian government, nor their military...it's the action of the Egyptian people we're modeling. Our government structure is fine, our Founding Fathers were brilliant, so we're happy with America government structure, except the tyrannical leadership in Washington, D.C.

Sher: During our recent conversation, you indicated that you are working with a small staff to accomplish your goals. After so many recent firings of our military leaders, one would think these leaders would be ready to expose Barack Obama for whom and what he really is. Why do you think so many high-ranking military men have been reluctant to say anything about this man who is openly and systematically destroying the USA and its Constitution; the Constitution that they have sworn to uphold?

Col. Riley: We have a number of high ranking military leaders who are in support of a gigantic "movement to action" in D.C. as we discuss in www.patriotsforamerica.ning.com We are witnessing exponential attention and emphasis from "grass roots" America. That's where this mission, Operation American Spring is coming from.

Garrow: Obama Part Of Arab-Chinese-Communist Conspiracy, Children Need DNA Test

Right-wing activist Jim Garrow wants the Obama children to be DNA tested because, he suggests, they might not be related to the president because he prefers to have sex with “his boys.” In case you aren’t familiar yet, Garrow is a fraudster who has been making waves on birther outlets by claiming that he is a former intelligence officer with secret information about President Obama’s mysterious conspiracies involving nuclear attacks on America and aliens.

In an interview with the Hagmann & Hagmann Report last week, Garrow said that “Bathhouse Barry” has an “agreement” with First Lady, whom he calls “Moochelle,” to “feed” his “sexual proclivity.” He doubted that Sasha and Malia are the president’s children, saying “what needs to happen is somebody needs to get some DNA samples over there.”

Garrow also alleged that wealthy Arabs, among others, paid for Obama’s college education, as part of a plot to turn black students into “commie-influenced people who would serve the best interests of these Arab states” with ties to China’s People Liberation Army, information he claimed he received from Obama’s half-brother Mark Obama Ndesandjo.

Corsi: Obama Using Gay People To Collapse The Health Insurance System In Order To Implement Single-Payer Health Care

Last week, Jerome Corsi was a guest on TheDoveTV where he promoted his latest conspiracy theory that the Obama Administration is encouraging gay people to sign up for Obamacare because they are "afflicted disproportionately by AIDS and other health issues" and will run up the cost of private insurance, eventually crashing the entire system and forcing the government to implement a single-payer universal healthcare plan.

Claiming that medical care for those with HIV and AIDS costs up to a half million dollars a year, Corsi said "the White House has made a major push in the LGBT community to get LGBTs enrolled in health care" in order to make private insurers bear costs that are unsustainable and will collapse the private insurance market, at which point the government can step in and take it over:

Farah: Obama Proves He's Evil By Watching House Of Cards

Joseph Farah, the editor of WorldNetDaily, is outraged that President Obama is a fan of the Netflix series “House of Cards,” and is particularly scandalized by the president’s joking observation that the show’s ruthless lead character, House Majority Whip Francis Underwood, is “getting a lot of stuff done.”

Anyone who actually watched the president’s comments could tell that he was clearly joking, but Farah claims that Obama is “shamelessly promoting” Underwood’s corrupt behavior and sees him as a “role model.”

“Is it appropriate, responsible and thoughtful for a president of the United States to champion blackmail, extortion, threats, intimidation, lies, provocation and murder as the best way to do business in Washington?” Farah asks in his column today. “He’s not even the least bit self-conscious about proclaiming his admiration for a character who is rotten to the core.”

We can only imagine how much fun it is to watch TV with Farah.

You can tell a lot about people by what they watch on television.

They say you are what you eat. It’s also true that what you choose to consume with the eye says much about your soul.



It’s about how corruption is the key to getting things done in Washington.

It’s also explicitly pornographic. You won’t see a single episode that doesn’t include the most ridiculous examples of gratuitous sex, meant only to appeal to the prurient interest of voyeurs.

All that would be disturbing, given the occupant of the White House has become a public promoter of the show. But it’s much worse than that.



So I have to ask myself: What is Barack Obama doing promoting this show? Why is he giving interviews saying he wishes things could be done the way Frank Underwood does them? Is it appropriate, responsible and thoughtful for a president of the United States to champion blackmail, extortion, threats, intimidation, lies, provocation and murder as the best way to do business in Washington?



But Obama is shamelessly promoting it without any caveats whatsoever.

Worse yet, he is out there suggesting Frank Underwood – a murderer – is a role model for him.



Make no mistake about it if you haven’t watched the first season of “House of Cards”: Obama has expressed admiration for a character who is a ruthless thug – a godfather-style figure who will use any means necessary to get his way.

Of course, that character is a liberal Democrat – so it’s OK.

None of this surprises me.

Obama is not a virtuous man of character. We know that after five years in office. But he’s not even the least bit self-conscious about proclaiming his admiration for a character who is rotten to the core – a cheater, an adulterer, one who even plans and executes the murder of a fellow member of Congress.

He’s setting a great example for the nation, isn’t he? He’s really raising the bar on expectations of the next generation, isn’t he? Is he going to recommend the show to his own children, even as he publicly extols it to the entire nation without any reservations?

We’ve come a long way since George Washington, haven’t we?

Video: PFAW’s Drew Courtney Discusses Right Wing Extremism on Politics Nation with Al Sharpton

Last Monday, Right Wing Watch reported on an upcoming far-right rally, “Operation American Spring,” calling for the ousting of President Obama. Rally organizer Harry Riley predicts that “millions of Americans will participate” in this mission to “bring down the existing leadership.”

On Friday, PFAW Director of Communications Drew Courtney joined Rev. Al Sharpton on Politics Nation to discuss these fringe plans to overthrow President Obama and what it means when the rhetoric of far right activists creeps into the language of GOP elected officials:

How PFAW Members Answered Right-Wing Extremism in 2013 -- And Will Keep Fighting!

The Tea Party has full control of Congress in its sights, but PFAW members standing side by side can defeat them and defend liberty, justice and The American Way.

Utah Man Starving Himself To Stop Same-Sex Marriages

Right-wing advocates of “nullification” say it is a principle by which state and county officials can simply ignore federal laws and court rulings they consider unconstitutional.  A Utah man who believes a federal judge acted unconstitutionally in ordering officials to permit same-sex marriage in the state has been fasting since December 21, he says, and will keep doing so until state officials refuse to obey the federal judge.  He invokes the founding fathers in his call for nullification.

In an interview posted today on the Cultural Hall website, Meacham said it is “completely pointless” for state officials to go through the courts because they are “packed full of activist judges that don’t listen to the constitution.” He has urged state officials and county clerks to defy the order. He told an interviewer he is emulating Gandhi, and said he is willing to sacrifice his life for the cause.

Trestin Meacham is a libertarian-leaning Navy veteran who ran for the state senate in 2012 as a candidate for the far-right Constitution Party, which promotes biblical law. His online bio from Project Vote Smart doesn’t have much more information other than that he is a small business owner and Mormon, while his personal Facebook page describes his politics as “Anti-Marxist Secessionist.” (It lists joking pop culture references for his work and education.)

As a candidate he was described as a conservative blogger, though some of his blogs appear to be defunct. In his writings and postings he has demonstrated a commitment to the Tea Party’s notion that much of what the federal government does violates the Tenth Amendment. As a candidate, he argued:

For over a hundred years we have been drifting further and further from the government designed by our founders, to something more closely resembling the writings of Karl Marx …

It is the duty of the State Legislatures to stand up to the federal government and take back our God-given right of self-government laid out in the Constitution. Washington is not going to reform itself. Even if we had Ronald Reagan as President, with control of both houses of Congress, it would still be heading down the wrong path. Washington is too corrupt; it will not relinquish its unconstitutional power. Reform can only come from an outside source, that source is the states.

As a State Senator, I will oppose any further unconstitutional power grabs from Washington. I will also sponsor and support legislation, which takes back the states rightful power from our corrupt federal government.

Meacham claims federal courts decisions on gay marriage will lead to tyranny, ultimately forcing churches and LDS to officiate same-sex weddings:

I think an attack on freedom, an attack on the Constitution, affects everybody.  If a fed judge can throw out the Constitution and the will of the people then we’re really little better off than a Soviet satellite nation. Our freedom means nothing. They can do anything if they can do this.

In a 2011 comment on a story on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, he wrote, “Our schools have always been places for socialist indoctrinations. The public school system is the tenth plank of the Communist Manifesto.” An old YouTube channel apparently created while he was serving in Korea includes birther material.

Meacham has linked to right-wing sources online promoting nullification. In today’s interview he also appealed to the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, quoting Joseph Smith saying that saints should not follow any law that violates the Constitution.

Meacham has a blog devoted to his fast / hunger strike as well as Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The blog Meacham created to promote his fast appears to be built on the same platform as a fictional country, Kherutistan, that Meacham seems to be constructing online, complete with its own Declaration of Independence and flag. Kherutistan is a libertarian paradise, a “heroarchy” led by people of good character where the basic ground rule of living is for people to be excellent to one another.

Joyner: The Founding Fathers Saw America 'As A Model For The Coming Kingdom Of God'

On yesterday's episode of "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events," Rick Joyner explained that he was not always what one would call a "patriot" because, as a pastor, he was mainly concerned with saving souls. Besides, he also had some concerns about some of the Founding Fathers and wasn't sure if they were really "inspired by divine principles, by biblical principles."

As such, he decided to look into the issue for himself in order to determine whether or not he should really care about what is happening to America and, lo and behold, God showed him "that America had been established by Him for a special purpose and I saw that purpose in the Scripture and I saw America in the prophetic books of the Bible."

In fact, during his course of study, Joyner also discovered that many of the Founding Fathers saw America "as a model for the coming Kingdom of God ... It was their vision of the Kingdom that they sought to bring forth in America":

Paranoia-Rama: Obama's Alien Mission, Comic Book Communism & How Salsa Is Destroying America

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Did you know that you can be thrown in jail simply for criticizing President Obama? Or that Obama will soon pretend to speak with aliens as part of a ploy to silence the criticism that he has apparently already criminalized? Learn more in this week’s edition of Paranoia-Rama:

5. Obama’s Alien-Canadian Plot

Since President Obama failed to nuke the U.S. and kill 90 percent of Americans, activist Jim Garrow claims that he is now preparing “the greatest deception that mankind has ever faced”: contact with alien life.

Apparently, attempting to nuke America didn’t help the president become more popular, so Garrow reasons that the president will now try to improve his polling numbers by pretending to be in “communication with people from other civilizations beyond Earth.” Garrow argues that if that doesn’t work, Obama will call in troops from Canada to start repressing and killing civilians… including Garrow himself.

4. Mexican Food Destroying America

The White Nationalists over at VDARE are outraged by the way the Associated Press reported on salsa becoming America’s No. 1 condiment. VDARE linked the stories of salsa overtaking ketchup to the War on Christmas, arguing that the media is trying to undercut America’s cultural identity with “Hispanic Cuisine Hype” and “the Demographic-Change-Is-Inevitable theme.”

Blogger Allan Wall asked, ruefully, if the “historic American nation” is about to be “radically transformed, beyond recognition, without our permission?”

3. Nelson Mandela Comic Book Is Dangerous Communist Brainwashing

Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaid is upset about the release of a new comic book chronicling the life of Nelson Mandela, which Kincaid fears will indoctrinate kids into communism by not calling Mandela a communist.

“If used in schools and libraries, this comic book will deceive ‘students and reluctant readers’ about how communism has come to power in South Africa. What purpose is served by that?” Kincaid asks. “It will enable the same forces to make even more gains around the world, including in the United States, by operating as ‘progressives.’”

He is also upset that people refer to South Africa as a democratic state, as Kincaid believes it is a communist nation committing anti-white genocide.

2. It Is Now Illegal To Criticize Obama!

If it was a crime to criticize President Obama, then almost everyone we monitor here on RightWingWatch would probably be in jail right now. But televangelists Jim Bakker and Rick Joyner now seem to believe that the government has banned criticism of Obama.

“Usually I don’t mention the president anymore, it’s very frightening, because they can take and put you in prison now if you speak out against our leaders,” Bakker said. “I don’t know what happened to America, this is not the America I knew when I was a boy.” Joyner added: “I believe if we don’t speak out we’re all going to be in prison very, very soon.”

Of course, this is the exact same shtick that the far right used to gin up fear and anger during the debate over the 2009 Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Religious Right activists predicted that anti-gay activists and pastors would be thrown into jail as soon as the law was enacted. Of course, they were lying.

1. Benghazi Conspiracy Theory Gets Even More Desperate

As their conspiracy theory surrounding the 2012 Benghazi attack continues to unravel, now right-wing activists and Republicans claim the New York Times is part of a cover-up…of something.

After a Times investigation into the incident debunked the GOP’s messaging about the attack and the administration’s response, Republican congressmen including Mike Rogers, Trey Gowdy and Lynn Westmoreland are now saying that the Times editorial board must have concocted the report in order to help Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential campaign.

Of course, the congressmen have absolutely no evidence to back up any of their allegations, but it’s not like a lack of evidence got in the way of their increasingly desperate and partisan Benghazi witch hunt.
