Pamela Geller: Olympic Fencer Competing In Hijab Is 'Islamic Supremacism'

On Saturday, fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad qualified for the U.S. Olympic team, making news for becoming the first U.S. athlete who will compete in the Olympics wearing a hijab.

As far as we know, Muhammad’s choice to wear a head covering during the competition isn’t going to affect anybody else on the U.S. Olympic team, but anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller is up in arms, saying in an interview with “Breitbart News Daily” this morning that the one athlete wearing a hijab amounts to “Islamic supremacism” and “imposing Islam on the secular marketplace.”

“The Olympic team now, they’re wearing hijabs, aren’t they?” the program’s host, Stephen K. Bannon, asked Geller.

Geller confirmed that “they’ve designed special outfits for them."

“It’s more of imposing Islam on the secular marketplace,” she added, “whether it’s in the workplace, whether it’s in the school. It’s Islamic supremacism is what it is. You have even in Canada, the Mounties, they’re designing a police officer’s uniform with a hijab. This is Islamic supremacism. You know, Jewish law pertains only to Jews, canon law pertains only to Christians, but Sharia, Islamic law, asserts it’s authority over non-Muslims. This is the problem and this is something that is never discussed.”

Bryan Fischer Says All Islamic Charities Are Merely Fronts For Funding Terrorism

On his program yesterday, notorious anti-Muslim radio host Bryan Fischer criticized President Obama for speaking at a mosque, asserting that there is no such thing as an Islamic charity because all such organizations are nothing more than fronts for funding terrorism.

"There's no such thing as an Islamic charity," he said. "That's just a ruse. That is a terrorist fundraising organization. You see any Islamic organization with the word 'relief' or 'foundation' or 'charity' in it, you are looking at an organization that raises money for terror."

When Christians start a charity, Fischer asserted, the motivation is to "provide charitable relief to needy people" but when Muslims start a charity, the true "purpose is to finance jihad."

"That is it's mission," he said. "That's why it exists and this whole business about it being a charity, being a foundation, that's just a cover to try to avoid suspicion."

Rick Santorum Leaves GOP Race But His Bigoted Legacy Will Remain

Despite winning the 2012 Iowa Republican caucuses, Rick Santorum managed to get just one percent of the vote in Monday’s contest and reportedly plans to drop out of the presidential race in a speech tonight. According to National Journal, the former Pennsylvania senator had “spent 86 days campaigning in Iowa since the 2014 election, more than any candidate from either party,” as he attempted to rebrand himself as a “blue collar conservative” class warrior. But Santorum couldn’t escape his polarizing image as a Religious Right culture warrior.

Santorum joined his fellow GOP candidates Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal and Mike Huckabee in claiming that the president can simply ignore Supreme Court rulings that he or she doesn’t like, specifically pledging to defy the court on marriage if he were to become president himself.

He personally pledged to commit civil disobedience against gay marriage and end its “promotion” in public schools, urged Kentucky clerk Kim Davis to defy the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, alleged that gay marriage violates the First Amendment and said he would continue to enforce the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act.

Santorum, who believes that “our civil laws have to comport with the higher law,” argued that the gay marriage ruling was illegitimate because it went “against the natural law.” But because people didn’t heed his warnings, the U.S. is turning into a dystopian secular theocracy where Christians face widespread legal and societal persecution if they dare to defend their purported right to discriminate against gay people. Now, Santorum says that everything he once predicted, such as the imminent decriminalization of pedophilia and man-dog sex, has come true.

He also claimed that Roe v. Wade is similarly invalid because it contradicts “nature’s law” and provokes divine judgment, equating the legalization of abortion with the Holocaust and blaming racism in America on Planned Parenthood.

But at least Santorum offered us one of the more interesting moments of the campaign.

Santorum, who has routinely suggested that President Obama is aiding terrorism, faced a question from a South Carolina activist about the president’s plot to nuke the city of Charleston. He naturally responded not by putting her conspiracy theory to rest but by decrying Obama as a “tyrant” bent on destroying America.

Cruz Endorser Connects East Coast Blizzard With North Dakota Abortion Ruling

Mike Bickle, the far-right pastor whose endorsement was recently embraced by Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, joined a group of anti-abortion activists today in linking a blizzard that hit the East Coast last month to a Supreme Court decision on abortion rights in North Dakota.

Bickle joined anti-abortion activists including Priests for Life’s Alveda King, the Family Research Council’s Pierre Bynum and Mark Gonzalez of the United States Hispanic Prayer and Action Network in signing a statement distributed by the Texas based Justice Foundation calling for a month of “national prayers and repentance” leading up to the Supreme Court arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole, the Texas abortion laws case.

“We fear that the judgment of Almighty God, which is designed to be merciful, and the wrath of God, will come upon the United States of America,” the statement warns, noting that a blizzard hit Washington on the same day that the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling striking down North Dakota’s restrictive anti-abortion “heartbeat” bill.

These leaders agree with the statement: "We tremble for our country when we remember that God is just and that His justice never sleeps. We fear that the judgment of Almighty God, which is designed to be merciful, and the wrath of God, will come upon the United States of America. God hates the shedding of innocent blood." But there is hope for our nation if Christians will pray! "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:13-14. We believe that the role of the SCOTUS is to affirm God given rights to every individual throughout ALL stages of LIFE.

We are calling for national prayers of repentance from February 3 to March 4. On January 22, the Jonas storm, which also means Jonah, hit Washington, D.C. That same day the Supreme Court denied North Dakota the right to ban abortion and help women with child care. We urge everyone to pray every day for the Supreme Court and America to repent. From February 3 to March 4, we are urging prayer groups to cooperate in mobilizing the Body of Christ to 24/7 non-stop prayer for the SCOTUS.

On March 2, the Supreme Court will hear the Texas case which calls for ambulatory surgical centers and hospital admitting privileges. We all will have another opportunity to repent for the sin of abortion through this case.

Glenn Beck Falsely Claims Hillary Clinton Promised To Implement A Single-Payer Health Care System

Just a few days before the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton criticized her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders' plan to implement a single-payer health care system in America, so it would probably have been newsworthy if Clinton had then promised to implement just such a system during her Iowa victory speech.

Of course, that never made the news because Clinton never said it ... but that didn't stop Glenn Beck from "reporting" that she had on his television program last night.

"Last night, she said she would achieve a single-payer health care system," Beck stated. "Just four years ago, they were all saying that was a conspiracy theory, that there's no way any of them wanted a single-payer health care system. But apparently, Obamacare is exactly what we warned it would be: a system designed to crush the health care system and give the government an excuse to swoop in and implement a single-payer health care system. But who's the kook? Who's the crazy one? Who's the conspiracy theorist? Me? You? Or perhaps has the media and the left been lying to you the whole time?"

Beck repeated this claim on his radio program today, which utterly surprised his co-hosts, who could not imagine how they had not heard this piece of news, while Beck insisted that "he was pretty darn sure" it was true because "it was in my morning briefing." 

After admitting that he had not actually heard Clinton say this, Beck had his staff try to find any evidence the Clinton had made statement — after, of course, he'd already reported it on television the night before — but they came up empty, which was very confusing to Beck because he was sure that he had seen it in his briefing "and I don't think I misunderstood that."

This is another pretty telling example of how Beck "verifies" information before he goes out and reports it as fact on air: He simply doesn't bother.

UPDATE: Later in the radio broadcast, Beck reported that Clinton actually promised "universal health care for every single payer," which he insisted was essentially the same thing as single-payer health care. He's still wrong, as what Clinton actually said was that "I know that we can finish the job of universal health-care coverage for every single man, woman and child."

Ted Cruz Blames Media For Ben Carson Flap, Says He's Running 'A High-Road Campaign With Integrity'

Ted Cruz blamed the media this morning for the controversy over whether his campaign falsely hinted to Iowa caucus-goers before voting commenced that his rival Ben Carson was dropping out of the race.

Cruz sort of apologized to Carson yesterday, saying that his political team had simply passed along a CNN report about Carson’s status to supporters in Iowa and that it was a “mistake” that the campaign had not sent a follow-up email clarifying that Carson was actually staying in the race.

In reality, the CNN report in question merely said that Carson was going home to Florida before heading on to New Hampshire and South Carolina for those state’s primaries, not that he was dropping out of the race. The Cruz campaign, meanwhile, told supporters to inform any Carson backers at their caucuses that Carson was “taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.” Rep. Steve King, one of Cruz’s most prominent Iowa endorsers, tweeted that Carson was likely dropping out and that his supporters should switch to Cruz.

Cruz pushed back against criticism in an interview today with talk radio host Mike Gallagher, insisting that “from the beginning, we’ve resolved to run a high-road campaign with integrity.”

The Texas senator repeated his story about the CNN report and said of Carson, “I’m sorry if our passing on that CNN news story caused him and his campaign discomfort.”

When Gallagher asked Cruz if he was angry about his campaign officials’ actions, the Texas senator replied, “Well, look, I was disappointed that an impression had been left that was incomplete. It was based on public news reports, and so some of the media folks who want to use it to impugn integrity are deliberately using it in a misleading way.”

Cruz dropped briefly off the line, but when he returned, Gallagher asked him if he would discipline any staffers for their actions.

“Well, I don’t make it a practice to discipline people for passing on public news reports,” he said. “And the news turned out to be accurate, he did indeed return to Florida, and that was news that the voters were interested in.”

Tell 'The Rainbow Mafia To Leave Captain America Alone!'

Steve Pauwels, a pastor in Londonderry, New Hampshire, and an editor at Clashdaily.com, is not very happy about the inclusion of gay and transgender characters in superhero comic books and is calling on his fellow anti-gay activists to rise up and tell the "Rainbow Mafia to leave Captain America alone!"

In a column posted on BarbWire.com today, Pauwels fumes that the "rainbow mafia" has utterly contaminated "healthy male friendship" so that now "any non-libidinous connection between dudes has become fair game for pro-deviancy revisionism."

"Sodomite supremacists," he writes, are driven by a "psychic rage" to completely destroy the culture, so much so that they have now even taken over our precious comic books:

When I was a teenager, Captain America was probably my favorite comic book hero. Every month I’d eagerly look forward to the newest issue of Captain America and the Falcon. The Falcon, you ask? He was the red-white-and-blue Avenger’s African-American partner — “partner” as in crime-fighting teammate, not as in the fellow who, after a full day of busting bad guys with Cap, did things with him in the dark that would make most comic aficionados go, “Ewwwww.”

Yes, back in the mid/late 1970’s, “partner” still just meant … well, “partner”; nothing more salacious. But, of course, that semantic status quo couldn’t be allowed to endure — and the meaning of a once innocent word has significantly warped into something icky. As, alas, has occurred with such previously serviceable terms as “gay”, “queer” and “marriage” – the “homosexual rights” movement churns on like a lavender Pac Man, omnivorously gobbling up everything in it’s path.

...

Why else would it be necessary to contemplate the sexual proclivities of a comic book hotshot? That the fellow firing laser beams from his eyes prefers canoodling with Carl rather than Carla? The guy who can lift a building over his head favors anal intercourse to the real thing? The woman defying gravity’s limitations also flies home at night to be with her “wife”?

Recall Andrew Wheeler’s admission: the goal is not just “some” homosexual heroes, but “enough” of them. “Success” arrives with Captain America and his boyfriend. Except that, for the Lavender Lobby, it’s never “enough”. First, it was “Leave us alone!” Then, prominence in film, television, music, literature. Next? “Gay marriage”. And lately, the comic-book cosmos.

It does supply an idea for a truly daunting supervillain: an unrelenting baddie who wields his powers to transform all of society into his version of a sodomy-worshiping, marriage-distorting, family-depredating Eden. I’d love to see Cap and the Falcon take a crack at challenging, then vanquishing him. Those of us who prize God’s original plan for sexuality and marriage certainly have no other choice.

Sandy Rios: Liberals Just Using Flint Water Crisis And The Zika Virus To Scare People

Last week, American Family Association official Sandy Rios spoke on her radio program with a caller who was angry that Rios and other conservatives aren’t talking about the Flint water crisis, where policies imposed by the state’s Republican administration directly led to the poisoning of the city’s water supply.

Rios responded by blaming the city’s (powerless) Democratic city officials for the lead poisoning catastrophe and alleged that the disaster in Flint is less important than the threat from ISIS and “our out-of-control borders.”

She then managed to link outrage over the Flint crisis to coverage of the Zika virus outbreak in South and Central America: “The whole issue in Michigan — the left loves to, they’re now creating this, I’m sorry, I’m going to really go out on a limb here, this Zika virus which I haven’t talked about. They love to come up with tragedies and they love to blame and they love to scare people. I think this issue in Michigan is a serious one but I don’t think it’s the big issue that these other issues are.”

When the listener told Rios that she was “devaluing black life” by dismissing the importance of the turmoil in Flint, she insisted that that was impossible because she had no idea whether Flint residents are predominantly black or white.

While Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, isn’t very concerned with the poisoning of thousands in Flint and seems to think that the Zika virus is a liberal scare tactic, she hasn’t been above stirring up actually baseless fears, alleging that Central American migrants would spread measles, Enterovirus D68 and other diseases around the U.S.
