Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/16/15

  • Franklin Graham says conservative Christians must "get out and vote" in 2016 and "elect candidates at all levels that most closely support biblical values and principles" because "this may be the most important election in our nation’s history."
  • Alan Keyes is not a fan of Donald Trump.
  • Rafael Cruz, father of GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, will soon be releasing a new book "urging people of faith to get involved in politics," presumably by voting for his son.
  • Steve Deace has half-heartedly apologized for slamming Carly Fiorina for going "full vagina" during last night's GOP debate.
  • Finally, Linda Harvey says that Christians must continue to fight gay marriage: "It's a moral imperative to refuse to honor such immorality. Christians especially have not just a right, but a duty to our children and grandchildren to lawfully resist this deviance in America."

Mohler Reminds Christians That Birth Control Started 'Sexual Misbehavior' Slippery Slope

Albert Mohler’s most recent book, “We Cannot Be Silent,” got a lot of attention for the Southern Baptist leader’s argument that Christians should boycott gay family member’s weddings. But that was just part of Mohler’s thesis, which he started with a history of “the breakdown of marriage as an institution,” including widespread contraceptive use, liberalized divorce laws and cohabitation.

In an interview with the “Christian Worldview” radio program on Saturday, Mohler went over this argument again, chastising Christians for failing to realize that the “moral revolution” that led to marriage equality started with birth control (which evangelical women use at a higher rate than the population as a whole).

“We are clearly at a very important turning point, but you have to go back to the early 20th century when sexual revolutionaries largely funded an effort to separate sex and procreation, and that was birth control,” he said. “And most Christians seem to think today that birth control was just something that came along as something of a scientific or medical development. They fail to see that it was driven by moral revolutionaries who knew that you couldn’t have a moral revolution, you especially couldn’t have a sexual revolution, unless you could separate sex and babies.”

“You know,” he said, “one kind of sexual misbehavior leads to the rationalization of another, and thus we couldn’t have the Obergefell decision that came this June, we couldn’t have the legalization of same-sex marriage, if there hadn’t been a lot of sexual revolution before we got there.”

The program’s host, David Wheaton, also asked Mohler to address his advice on Christians attending the weddings of gay friends and family members, which Mohler said they should “absolutely not” do “because to participate in a same-sex wedding in any way is uniquely to give an affirmation of it.”

“That’s the one thing Christians can’t do,” he said. “We can do our very best to be good neighbors to all people who may be around us and next to us, we should not seek to segregate ourselves. You know, we go to a Little League game, if there’s a same-sex couple who are parenting their kid who’s on the same Little League team as our kid, there’s every reason to go sit next to them in order to establish a relationship to share the gospel, but going to a wedding is the one thing we can’t do.”

Trump: Why Do Refugees Have Cell Phones?

At a campaign rally in Mesa, Arizona, today, Donald Trump, discussing reports that several asylum seekers in Norway had images of ISIS flags on their cell phones, wondered how the refugees got access to mobile phones in the first place.

“First of all, why are people in a migration having cell phones?” Trump asked. “It’s sort of strange. Who’s paying for those cell phones? Where are they coming from? Who are they calling? These are people — can you imagine, many, many, many cell phones. Where do they get cell phones? Who pays their monthly bill?”

One woman in the crowd incessantly shouted, “Obama!”

Trump also declared that Syrian refugees in the U.S. are “all going back” if he’s elected president.

This led him to claim that he has the support of a majority of Hispanic voters because they don’t want to be “overrun by people pouring across the borders.”

John Guandolo Hopes President Trump Throws Obama Officials In Jail For Treason

John Guandolo, the disgraced ex-FBI agent and conspiracy theorist who, thanks to fellow anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney, has shared the stage with GOP presidential candidates, appeared on yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” where he once again accused President Obama and administration officials of committing treason.

He said that the Obama administration is “intentionally” aiding terrorists: “This administration, I believe, is treasonous.”

Guandolo claimed that Obama has an Islamic-Marxist worldview and has put likeminded people — “the children of communists, enemies of the United States” — into high-ranking government positions.

“I think whoever the next president is, whether it’s Mr. Cruz or Mr. Trump or somebody else, they are going to have to literally purge, and I’m going to use the word ‘purge,’ the system,” he said. “They’re going to have to clean house in the bureaucracy for communists, Marxists and jihadists that are inside our system.”

The Obama administration, Guandolo lamented, is ignoring all the people threatening the United States because government officials agree with their anti-American views.

Not only should such officials who “aid and abet the enemy” be purged from office, Guandolo said, but they should also be thrown in jail for treason.

Frank Gaffney: Obama 'Playing For The Other Team,' Committing 'Treason'

There’s a new star in the world of Frank Gaffney, an activist who was largely banished from mainstream GOP circles for alleging that both the Obama administration and the Republican Party have been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, but has since been enjoying the attention of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

In recent days, Gaffney has been promoting the story of Phillip Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security employee who claims that the Obama administration pulled the plug on an investigation that he was conducting that he claims could possibly have caught the San Bernardino terrorists. It’s hard to tell what of Haney’s story is true since DHS has stayed mum on it other than to tell Fox News that his tale has “many holes.” Haney mentioned in an interview with Sandy Rios this morning that he also locked horns with the Bush administration, but did not provide details.

But in any case, Gaffney has latched onto Haney’s story to promote his narrative that, as he told Indianapolis talk radio host Greg Garrison last week, President Obama is “playing for the other team” and that it is “indisputable” that the president is committing “treason.”

“What I believe this proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt — and I think this is also just the tip of the iceberg, by the way — is that the Obama administration is … well, they’re playing for the other team,” Gaffney told Garrison. “And this is an extraordinarily dangerous thing for this country to be experiencing at a moment like this, I think it’s contributing, frankly, to the mortal peril we’re facing from these jihadists.”

It is, he said, an “increasingly indisputable fact that this president is providing aid and comfort to enemies of the United States. And that is the definition, as you know, of treason.”

Dana Loesch Melts Down: The 'Tragedy Dry-Humping Whores' On 'The Godless Left' Have Blood On Their Hands

Today, FBI Director James Comey stated that, contrary to previous news reports, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the couple that carried out the deadly terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, did not, in fact, post public messages of support for jihad and martyrdom on social media.

The claim that Malik had posted such messages but that they were "deliberately ignored" by the Department of Homeland Security has been centerpiece of the Right's criticism of the Obama administration in the wake of the terrorist attack.

In fact, this claim formed the crux of an unhinged rant that The Blaze's Dana Loesch delivered on her television program last night in which she furiously attacked the "godless left" for "mocking people who were simply asking for prayers" in the wake of the attack and for blaming the attack on guns and the NRA.

"Here's an idea," she said, "how about you guys stop letting terrorists in ... because you all have blood on your hands right now."

"It wasn't the NRA that made the rule that said we're not allowed to look at the social media activity of people who are unvetted and coming from hotbed areas of terrorism like Tashfeen Malik," Loesch continued. "I don't know if people missed Government 101 and how all of this works, but that was actually Jeh Johnson and the Department of Homeland Security."

"It was that rule, that very rule, that allowed inside these United States, fiancée Pakistani Visa applicant Tashfeen Malilk, who, by the way, was ranting on social media for years about her jihadi fetish," Loesch fumed. "She was fetishizing jihadism online but because Jeh Johnson was so obsessed with political correctness and so obsessed with optics — which I’m sure is going to be of great comfort to the 14 families who lost people in San Bernardino that day — I’m sure they’ll find great comfort in the fact that Jeh Johnson did all he could to make sure that DHS was beyond reproach in terms of politically correct optics."

"I also have a major problem with all these tragedy dry-humping whores," she ranted, "and I'm not watching my language because it’s about time somebody call you out for what you are. You sicken me.”

Dave Daubenmire Says FRC, AFA And The GOP Don't Really Want To End Abortion

Earlier this week, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire appeared on "Talkback with Chuck Wilder" radio program to discuss his long history of anti-choice activism. During the discussion, Daubenmire asserted that Republicans and Religious Right groups do not actually want to end abortion in America because they make too much money exploiting the issue.

After claiming that Democrats will never end abortion because the federal government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, which he falsely claimed then gets "recycled out" into Democratic campaign coffers, Daubenmire said that Republicans and groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association don't really want to end abortion either.

"I want people to understand this because I know this to be the truth," he said. "Republicans raise hundreds of millions of dollars fighting against Planned Parenthood. All those pro-life Focus on the Family, the Family Research Council, I could just go on and on, the American Family Association, they raise hundreds of millions of dollars to end abortion and, Chuck, what do you suppose they do with that money? Yes, you're right. They funnel it to pro-life representatives. So neither one of those people, neither group, Chuck, wants abortion to go away. The Democrats want it to stay because they can raise money on it and the Republicans want it to stay because they can raise money on it. I know that sounds callous, brother, but I'm just telling you that's the way that game is played."

Ted Cruz: Obama Won't Fight Terrorists Because He 'Refuses To Distinguish Good Guys From Bad Guys'

In an interview with “Breitbart News Daily” in the spin room following last night’s Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas, Sen. Ted Cruz declared that his strategy to defeat domestic terrorism is to “target the terrorists,” something that he claimed President Obama won’t do because he “consistently refuses to distinguish good guys from bad guys.”

“You’re someone who probably has a better sense of the Constitution than just about anybody in living memory who’s ever run for the presidency,” Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon told Cruz before asking him, “How would you fight this war domestically here in the United States, given your reverence for the Constitution?”

“What we need to do is target the terrorists,” the Texas Republican responded. “And this is the consistent failing that the Obama administration has, is that it consistently refuses to distinguish good guys from bad guys. So, for instance, in the wake of San Bernardino, what does President Obama want to come out and do? Take away the Second Amendment right to bear arms of millions of law-abiding citizens.”

Gun Lobbyist: Bundy Ranch 'Came Very Close' To Starting A 'Civil War' Against The Government

Larry Pratt, the executive director of Ted Cruz’s favorite gun group, Gun Owners of America, said in a radio interview last week that the armed standoff at the Bundy ranch in Nevada last year “came very close” to starting “a civil war between the people and the government,” but that the war was averted when the Bureau of Land Management backed down in the face of armed protesters.

Pratt spoke with Arizona radio host Dave Hodges, whose nationally broadcast “The Common Sense Show” is an outlet for anti-government conspiracy theories. Hodges, discussing potential executive actions on guns from President Obama, asked Pratt if he agreed that “if we did not own guns, this government, this tyranny, would roll right over us and we may find ourselves all in chains.”

“The Second Amendment is all about keeping government out of control, to keep it from moving off in a tyrannical direction,” Pratt responded. “And the most recent deployment of the Second Amendment occurred about three years ago in Bunkerville, Nevada, on Cliven Bundy’s ranch.”

Saying that the federal agents attempting to collect more than $1 million of unpaid fees for Bundy’s use of public land were acting “like a bunch of Jesse James outlaws,” Pratt boasted that their “plan didn’t work out because Americans came from all over the country during that standoff, with their guns.”

“Well, I think someday, Larry, the government’s going to back down,” Hodges said, “and I think that if Obama persists in the strategy of inventing false reasons to come get our guns, we’re going to see widespread violence and resistance. I mean, how do you gauge the American public’s mood and attitude toward gun confiscation?”

“Well, I think that standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada, was perhaps a canary in the coal mine and it told us that there is danger ahead,” Pratt responded. “But it also told the government that if you push too hard there will be pushback. And people did come with their guns and their ammunition and they were ready to shoot if the government attacked.”

“That seems to me to have been a lesson that was being sent to the government,” he continued, “and right now I don’t think any Democrat, let alone Republican, wants to have that kind of situation where their view’s precipitating the outbreak of civil war. And we came very close to that. And it wouldn’t have been a civil war between the North and the South, this would have been a civil war between the people and the government.”

The two went on to discuss Obama’s potential executive action requiring large gun dealers to conduct background checks, which Pratt has said Gun Owners of America will “openly defy.” Pratt gave Hodges some more details of this planned defiance, saying that if Obama were to go forward in the action, he would find somebody in his home state of Virginia to illegally buy a gun from or sell one to.

“Come and get us, Mr. President!” he declared. “You have no authority and if you try to exercise it we’re going to have you in court and your head spinning.”
