Tony Perkins: The Draft Is Coming Back, Thanks Obama

At last Saturday’s GOP presidential debate, several Republican candidates expressed openness to having women register with the Selective Service after the Army and Marine Corps chiefs said that the U.S. should make such a move, much to the dismay of the Religious Right.

Yesterday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins spoke with ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann, both of whom were stunned that Republican leaders would get behind the policy change, which they said would be disastrous for the military.

Perkins kicked things off by warning that “there is a very good likelihood that we could see the draft” in the near future because “the policies of this administration” have weakened the military and “made the world a very dangerous place.” (Back in 2010, Perkins said that “the president’s drive to repeal the ban on open homosexuality in the military” could “bring back the draft.”)

Bachmann said she was “shocked” by the candidates’ remarks in the debate, saying that “it’s crazy.”

“This is a radical idea,” she said. “It’s a darling of the left that’s been put forward actually for several decades but it is put forward, interestingly, by people who tend to be not fans of the military and it’s people who are on this wild tear to bring about the end of male-female. At the core of this argument really, Tony, is that gender doesn’t matter. We’ve seen it in the marriage debate, but we see it now in this combat readiness debate.”

Anti-Choice Group Vows To Put Spies In Every Abortion Clinic In The Country

As we noted last year, the Texas anti-abortion group Life Dynamics, whose founder Mark Crutcher was an important mentor to undercover Planned Parenthood activist David Daleiden, plans to start training “a whole army” of Daleidens in the arts of spying on abortion providers.

Crutcher joined Cleveland Right to Life’s Molly Smith on her “From the Median” radio program earlier this month to discuss his plans to “create intelligence gathering agents” to infiltrate abortion providers, with the goal of having 100 such agents by the end of the year and eventually one for every abortion clinic in the country.

“Right now the abortion industry only has to worry about basically two organizations infiltrating them,” Crutcher said, “and that’s Life Dynamics — us — and Lila Rose with Live Action.” (Crutcher, who pioneered the technique of sham undercover “investigations” of abortion providers, also trained Rose.)

“We know for a fact that we can put 100 trained people around the country by the end of this year,” he said, “and our eventual goal is to make sure there’s not an abortion clinic in this country that doesn’t have intelligence operatives surveilling it on a daily basis.”

Crutcher asserted that this 24/7 spying on every single abortion provider would easily turn up useful information because “I guarantee you, Molly, there’s not an abortion clinic in this country that’s not engaged in at least a few illegal activities, not one.”

“They go to bed every night knowing things that if we knew would destroy them,” he said.

In a protest outside the construction site for a new Planned Parenthood clinic last month, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life praised Crutcher’s work, telling the women’s health provider: “Be on your toes because we are in your midst, we are behind your doors, we are in your secret meetings, we are working for you and with you though you know it not, but in His good time the God who reveals all secrets will reveal that too.”

A major funder of Life Dynamics is Farris Wilks, who along with his brother have been generously backing Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. In 2011, Wilks’ foundation funded a Life Dynamics effort “to mass-mail DVDs to lawyers encouraging them to sue abortion clinics into oblivion.”

Pat Robertson: Bernie Sanders' Youth Supporters 'The Kids Who Want To Do A Panty Raid In The Fraternity'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson sat down with Stephen Moore, the former chief economist of the Heritage Foundation, to discuss the results of last night’s New Hampshire primaries, and particularly Bernie Sanders’ success in the Democratic contest.

After gloating that Hillary Clinton “is not going to be president” and commending Donald Trump’s “phenomenal,” “patriotic” and “pro-America” victory speech, Moore lit into Sanders and Clinton for proposing “big spending programs” and trying to “raise taxes on the middle class.”

Robertson, before repeating the myth that Sanders is seeking a 90 percent marginal tax rate, said he was confused as to why young voters overwhelmingly backed Sanders in New Hampshire. “Is that like the kids who want to do a panty raid in the fraternity?” he asked.

“It’s an indictment of our education system in America,” Moore said. “When these college graduates think that socialism is an economic model that works, I mean, show me anywhere in the world, Bernie Sanders, where socialism has worked.”

Ted Cruz To Campaign With Glenn Beck At Rick Joyner's Church

Last month, we noted that Ted Cruz attended a national security forum held at Rick Joyner's MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Joyner is a self-proclaimed prophet who frequently talks of his prophetic dreams about chaos and revolution descending upon America and resulting in martial law. He is the sort of right-wing Christian leader who issues warnings about how the devastating 2011 earthquake in Japan would push America into Nazism and declares that Hurricane Katrina was God's judgment for homosexuality. He's also the type to declare that gay marriage will usher in national destructiona second civil wardivine judgmenta ban on men and women marrying each other and even the Mark of the Beast.

But Joyner is not all doom and gloom, as he did once pray away the spread of the Asian Flu and even cooked a miraculous casserole that fed multitudes.

Later this week, Cruz will return to Joyner's church for a campaign event and this time he'll be in the company of another self-appointed prophet: Glenn Beck.

Pat Robertson: Obama Destroying America As We Near The End Times

Televangelist Pat Robertson thinks that the Syrian Civil War indicates that End Times prophecies are being fulfilled, and on today’s edition of “The 700 Club” discussed the prophetic significance of the Iranian-Russian alliance in the war on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Robertson said that Russia and Iran are likely to lead the coalition that will invade Israel in the Last Days (a similar prediction to one put forward by Michele Bachmann), while also worrying about the prospect of a war between North Korea and the U.S.

All of this, he said, is the fault of President Obama for reducing American strength and authority in the world, thus empowering Russia, Iran and ISIS.

“He is dangerous, he is really dangerous,” Robertson said of Obama. “But whether or not he can destroy this country in the next few months that he’s got ahead of him — his people will saddle us with so many regulations. We’re looking at a serious, serious economic collapse with no driver, no country strong enough to take on the burdens of the world unless the United States mans up and does it.”

Robertson reminded viewers that “God Almighty is on the throne” and “His purposes will stand, regardless of the Iranians, regardless of the Sunnis and the Shias, regardless of the Soviets, regardless of who wants to hurt who, God is going to have His way and it will come to pass as the Bible says it will.”

Ted Nugent Defends Anti-Semitic Facebook Rant By Calling Jewish Leaders 'Nazis'

It seems that NRA board member Ted Nugent is quite upset that anyone would dare criticize his anti-Semitic Facebook memes, writing on his Facebook page last night that he is simply trying to honor victims of the Holocaust by stopping the next one.

"What sort of racist prejudiced POS could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise?" Nugent said. "'NEVER AGAIN!' Anyone? Anyone?? RUFKM!"

Just when you hope that mankind couldnt possibly get any dumber or more dishonest, superFreaks rise to the occasion....

Posted by Ted Nugent on Monday, February 8, 2016

Nugent's fans quickly rose to his defense, and the right-wing activist and musician proceeded to "like" several anti-Semitic comments on his thread:

Bryan Fischer Perfectly Exposes His Utterly Incoherent Theory Of The First Amendment

As we have noted several times before, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer subscribes to an entirely incoherent theory about the First Amendment, insisting that its prohibition against an establishment of religion only applies to Congress while also insisting that its prohibition against infringing upon the free exercise of religion applies to all levels of government.

The First Amendment says that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," so if the establishment clause only applies to Congress, then logically so too does the free exercise clause. Conversely, if the free exercise clause applies to anything beyond Congress, then so too does the establishment clause. 

But somehow, Fischer cannot seem to comprehend this simple concept and continues to promote his unique and baffling interpretation, as he did on his radio show today while discussing Todd Starnes' latest column alleging that NASA has banned mentions of Jesus in the Johnson Space Center newsletter.

"I cannot begin to even describe to you how much is wrong with that," Fischer said. "Number one, the First Amendment prohibits Congress and Congress alone. The first words of the First Amendment, 'Congress shall make no law.' That is the only entity that is restrained by the founder's Constitution. It's never been amended; it still says Congress. Congress shall make no law. Now, let me ask you this question: are employees of NASA, are they Congress? No! They cannot possibly, conceivably violate the First Amendment of the Constitution even if they wanted to because they're not Congress! Only Congress can do that."

After laying out his case that only Congress can violate the First Amendment's establishment clause, Fischer then immediately turned around and bizarrely attacked NASA for supposedly violating the First Amendment's free exercise clause.

"The other thing about the First Amendment," Fischer continued, "it says that no branch of the federal government, and you might consider NASA a branch of the federal government since it is part of the bureaucracy, they are not allowed to prohibit the free exercise of religion. That's right there in the First Amendment. Make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. The federal government, not part of the federal government, no agency of the federal government, no bureaucracy of the federal government, no employee of the federal government is allowed to prohibit the free exercise of religion. This is exactly what NASA is doing, prohibiting the free exercise of religion. So it is wrong on so many counts, I can't even begin to tell you."

NASA, of course, is not Congress, so under the first half of Fischer's argument, the agency is not restricted by the Fist Amendment in any way. But, amazingly, that is not the position Fischer took as he then proceeded to insist that the First Amendment applies to every federal agency and employee!

Fischer spent the first half of his argument asserting that the First Amendment only applies to Congress and then spent the second half of that same argument asserting that the First Amendment applies to every part of the federal government. 

In the span of a minute and a half, Fischer managed to promote two views of the First Amendment that are not only illogical but entirely contradictory.  

Sandy Rios: Beyoncé Ushering In The Antichrist With Her 'Black Racism' And 'Lawlessness'

Conservative radio host Sandy Rios joined in on the conservative outrage over Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime show performance and “Formation” music video earlier today, calling the singer an anti-white racist whose “lawlessness” could bring about the End Times reign of the Antichrist.

Rios, the American Family Association’s director of government affairs who broadcasts on the group’s American Family Radio network, said Beyoncé “has become just more and more hard, hard, hard and crass, crass, crass.”

“This video that they have produced and released just before the Super Bowl, I guess the song she performed, it’s called ‘Formation,’ I watched it, it’s just disgusting to me,” Rios said. “It’s not only stoking the fires of racism, just stoking hatred, black hatred towards whites and towards policemen, it’s also just crass sexually. It’s like you need a bath. What is this beautiful girl doing, doing this?

Rios also criticized the NFL for letting the performance take place in the first place, claiming that it honored murder and anti-American terrorism.

It’s just in-your-face black racism,” she said. “And also cop hatred.”

After playing a clip of Rudy Giuliani’s criticism of Beyoncé on Fox & Friends, Rios alleged that Beyoncé’s actions contribute to lawlessness in society, which paves the way for the Man of Lawlessness, or the Antichrist.

“Of course, if we undermine the law and order of our country, we will, and probably are, descending into lawlessness, and those of us that understand scripture know that that is a sign of the Last Days,” she said. “The Man of Lawlessness will reign. Lawlessness, the breakdown in respect and honor. And so Beyoncé, who could be such an example to women everywhere, and I don’t care black or white, conducting herself with dignity with all that God has given her, her beauty and her natural talents, instead twisting it into something that is very ugly and very profane.”

This led Rios to also attack female public figures like Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright for trying to demonize men and push “a perversion of God’s order.”

Rios’ criticism of Beyoncé puts her in good company at the AFA, as her colleague Bryan Fischer once claimed that the musician was possessed by demons.
