Phyllis Schlafly Angry About Non-English Resources For Disaster Survivors

In a column today, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly criticized the Obama administration for making sure that disaster relief services, such as the ongoing efforts to help flood victims in Louisiana, do not discriminate against survivors who have limited English proficiency.

Ensuring that relief agencies have materials in languages other than English, according to Schlafly, is part of a larger plan by President Obama “to transform America by undermining our common culture and language.”

People with limited English proficiency, she said, should simply “become proficient in English.”

With only five months left in the White House, Obama is still hard at work “fundamentally transforming” our country into something much different from the nation we all grew up in. Here are recent examples of how he is determined to transform America by undermining our common culture and language.

This month’s catastrophic flooding in Louisiana is said to be America’s worst national disaster not caused by an earthquake or a hurricane. While Obama continued playing golf on the exclusive island of Martha’s Vineyard, his federal bureaucrats are making sure that the crisis won’t go to waste.

On August 16, five federal agencies issued an incredible 16-page, single-spaced “Guidance” warning relief agencies not to discriminate in the use of disaster funds. Agencies receiving funds must “post a statement of nondiscrimination” on all public notices and “should also identify a point of contact for the public to submit complaints of discrimination.”

The Guidance refers to “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin” which is prohibited by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but it doesn’t stop there. It also tries to ban discrimination on account of “limited English proficiency,” which Congress has never prohibited.

The sneaky part is the way the federal Guidance includes the phrase “limited English proficiency,” as if the language you speak is part of your “national origin.” In fact, people from every country can and do learn English, and there is no good reason for our government to conduct official business in any other language.



Don’t assume that the Obama administration is merely responding to a genuine need for services by recent immigrants who have not yet learned English. In the name of multiculturalism, the administration is actively discouraging the transition to English by immigrants and their children, and promoting other languages instead.

The Critically Important DC Circuit Court

Despite progressive victories in 2012, the Right’s outsized influence on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit gives it the power to undermine progressive laws and thwart the agenda that Americans elected President Obama to pursue.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/24/16

  • Jesse Lee Peterson says that "Black Lives Matter is a hate movement. They lionize black thugs. They falsely accuse and endanger innocent whites and police. They provoke riots, black-on-white assaults, and police assassinations. They poison the minds of blacks and gullible whites. They have no sense of justice or freedom. They are led by white anarchists, communists, black homosexuals and lesbians. They hate families and God — two things blacks need most."
  • John Biver warns that "the only way the Judeo-Christian West collapses is either through a surrender to Islam, or a surrender to the religion that is the greater short term threat: liberalism/progressivism."
  • Steve Deace says that most Americans would "take the dog Obama ate" to be president over either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
  • Wayne Allyn Root says that just as "black Americans had a right to be mad 100, even 50 years ago ... today it is the middle class getting the short end of the shaft. We didn’t march for civil rights, fight for equality and stand up against racial inequality so that the pendulum could be reversed and swung against us – so our children could lose jobs, or admission to college because they’re white."
  • Peter LaBarbera responds to the Right's favorite new "not-born-gay" study: "Homosexual activists have been desperate to try to say they're 'born that way' because they believe this absolves them of their moral responsibility for their sexual behavior."
  • Finally, Eric Trump says his father's run for president "might even be a higher degree of public service [because he] does not need the job."

Brigitte Gabriel: Khizr Khan Was 'Lying Either Way,' Can't Be A Muslim Who Follows The Constitution

Brigitte Gabriel, the head of the anti-Muslim group ACT! for America, repeated her view last week that Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who berated Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, cannot be both a devout Muslim and follow the Constitution.

In an August 19 interview with Tamara Scott, an Iowa Religious Right activist and Republican National Committee member, Gabriel declared that Khan was either lying about being Muslim or about following the Constitution.

“When Khizr Khan shook the Constitution at Donald Trump and challenged him,” Scott asked, “and yet Hillary and Obama have both taken oaths to protect it and they’ve trampled all over it, can Khizr Khan even uphold it himself with the letters he’s written, the papers he’s written about Sharia law, which they believe oversteps any other law?” (These claims come from a debunked article by a pair of far-right activists.)

Gabriel replied that a “practicing Muslim cannot with good conscience say he puts the Constitution over Sharia law, otherwise he’s not a practicing Muslim.”

“So he’s lying either way,” she said, “he’s either a practicing Muslim or he is not. If he is not a practicing Muslim, then the Constitution is the law above all laws that governs everybody, just like we believe that, but a practicing Muslim cannot with good conscience hold the Constitution and say that he abides by the Constitution and lives by the Constitution because, according to Sharia law, which every devout Muslim follows, the Constitution is a man-made law and it cannot be follow.”

Pamela Geller: If Trump Isn't Elected, 'It's Like Czechoslovakia And Hitler'

Anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller spoke today with One America News Network’s Graham Ledger about efforts to resettle refugees from the Syrian civil war, which she naturally opposes. She declared that the stakes of the presidential election are so high that if Donald Trump doesn’t win, “it’s like Czechoslovakia and Hitler.”

When Ledger asked Geller what viewers could do to help stop the refugee resettlement, Geller responded, “Well, if Donald Trump is not elected, then we’re in for some very, very dark times. I mean, it’s like Czechoslovakia and Hitler, frankly, it’s over.”

Hillary Clinton, she said, is a “puppet” of George Soros and supports “the blasphemy laws under the Sharia.”

“It has to be Trump,” she said, “this is a no-brainer, and if the media wasn’t so complicit and corrupt, it would be a cakewalk for us. But Trump is the answer.”

Ledger added: “George Soros, just to kind of tie a bow on this, they’re in favor of open borders. And in order to have open borders across the world, you have to destroy democracy, and in order to destroy democracy you have to destroy the beacon of freedom and liberty in the world, and that’s us, the United States of America.”

Kevin Swanson Warns Lady Gaga, Steven Spielberg & Mark Twain Are All Under The Control Of The Devil

Kevin Swanson, the Colorado pastor and homeschooling activist who last year hosted three GOP presidential candidates at a forum in Iowa, convened a conference in the Cincinnati area last weekend for the purpose of discussing how conservative evangelical parents can steer their children away from the pitfalls of a secular culture.

Swanson took a rather hard line on the issue, declaring at one point that Steven Spielberg and Lady Gaga, along with Charles Darwin, Aristotle, Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche, all are or have been “possessed by Satan” or “under the sway of the devil.”

Swanson reminded his audience that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,” meaning that “we’re not fundamentally up against Steven Spielberg, Lady Gaga or Charles Darwin, we’re up against their ideas”—and those ideas are of the devil.

“Now, Charles Darwin, Lady Gaga and Steven Spielberg are under the control of the Evil One,” he explained. “1 John 5:19 says the whole world is under the sway of the Evil One, under the sway of the devil, the devil has absolute control over them. Now, again, these are the presuppositions that are not taken on by those who want to dally with the world’s ideas. They don’t see that Aristotle is under the sway of the Evil One, under the absolute control of this very powerful, malignant force called the devil, and they don’t see that Steven Spielberg and Lady Gaga and Charles Darwin are under the absolute sway, the control, the force and the power of the devil himself. So therefore they absorb any of the ideas that may come their way through these means.”

He warned that parents and students must understand this before they “read these great novels written by men who were virtually possessed by the devil, some perhaps possessed by Satan himself,” including works by Twain, who “at points might have been possessed by Satan himself,” and Hawthorne, who “must have been affected by some demon.”

There was also, he said, “a lot of demonic involvement in the lives of Mark Twain, Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Nathaniel Hawthorne and others.”

Conservative Pundit: Laughter Proves Hillary Is Seriously Ill

Hillary Clinton health truthers have pointed to everything from pillows to flashlights as proof that the Democratic nominee is facing a serious health crisis.

You can now add laughter to the list of symptoms that prove that she is at death’s door.

Earlier this week, Graham Ledger of the conservative One America News Network spoke about Clinton’s health with Dr. Jane Orient of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, which, despite its innocuous name, is a far-right group that champions a whole host of bizarre claims.

Ledger, wondering if the former secretary of state has brain damage or has suffered seizures, pointed to Clinton’s appearance last year before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, where she laughed at a question about whether she had spent the night of the 2012 attack alone. (The attack had ended earlier in the day.)

“Certainly, inappropriate laughter, and it’s prolonged, that can be a sign of traumatic brain injury or other neurologic problems,” Orient said.

Tom DeLay: America On The Verge Of Death

Yesterday, former House GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay appeared on American Family Radio’s “Today’s Issues” to promote his new book, “Revive! Revolution! Rebirth!

DeLay warned that the U.S. is on the brink of destruction unless “God wants it turned around” and conservative Christians begin “getting out of their churches, hitting the streets and putting God back in the public square.”

“If we don’t turn this country around, if we don’t bring God to the center of our social order, if we don’t have a revolution for the Constitution,” he warned, “America will die.”
