End-Times Fanatic Joel Rosenberg Speaks To RNC Members On AFA Israel Trip

As Rachel Maddow noted last night, the Republican National Committee is not eager to talk about the fact that 60 of its members are currently on an all-expenses-paid trip to Israel with Christian nationalist organizer David Lane that was funded by the American Family Association.

Lane and the AFA don’t only promote a Christian nationalist view of the U.S. government and push smears against those of other religions and fellow Christians who do not share their views, but the AFA has a troubling history of bigotry toward secular Jews in the U.S. and Israel.

So it should come as no surprise that Lane and the AFA invited Joel Rosenberg to speak to RNC members, considering that Rosenberg is an End Times alarmist who promotes the apocalyptic narrative that Jews in Israel must convert to Christianity to prepare for the second coming of Christ, and used to exult on his website that “Jews are turning to Jesus in record numbers, and they are getting excited about His Second Coming.”

Rosenberg tweeted on Wednesday that he had spoken with RNC members on the trip about his new book, “The Third Target”:

Rosenberg also tweeted photos of himself with some members of the RNC delegation, including former Puerto Rico Gov. Louis Fortuno and former Mitt Romney advisor Ron Kaufman:

Rosenberg specializes in linking natural disasters and other calamities to God’s displeasure with secularism and reproductive rights. He has said that Hurricane Sandy was part of God’s plan to “get our attention and call us to repent of our sins and turn back to faith in Jesus Christ and back to reading and obeying the Bible”; tied the Newtown school shooting to Jon Stewart and the so-called “War on Christmas”; and even claimed that God let the September 11, 2001, attacks to happen “to shake America, to get our attention, to wake us up.”

Rosenberg alsofrequently likens legal abortion in the United States to the atrocities of Nazi Germany, and says that it will bring about similar punishment from God:

Rosenberg is hardly a new friend of the Republican Party. Back in 2011, he led a delegation to Israel that included a number of GOP congressmen, including Rep. Louis Gohmert, who took the opportunity to give a copy of Rosenberg’s latest novel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Linda Harvey: Katy Perry's 'Firework' Promotes Satanism, Super Bowl Halftime Show Pushed 'Homosexual Agenda'

It seems that Linda Harvey of the anti-LGBT group Mission America was not a fan of the Super Bowl Halftime Show, writing in BarbWire yesterday that Katy Perry’s song “Dark Horse” may be an “invitation to demonic possession.”

She also criticized “I Kissed A Girl,” unsurprisingly, by claiming that the song (not to mention Perry's “suggestive twerking with Lenny Kravitz”) is promoting the “homosexual agenda.”

“Just like her flirtation with Satan, she’s merely joining and providing theme music for a movement that long pre-dates her,” Harvey wrote.

But according to Harvey, these two songs aren’t the most troubling aspect of Perry's performance. The Religious Right activist thinks that Perry’s “Firework” may actually be a tool to trick people into following Satan rather than God, proving once again that Perry has “become a glamorous huckster of destruction to her millions of followers.”

“While ‘Firework’ seems encouraging taken at face value (and the song is musically very appealing), in the context of Perry’s other messages simply comes off as ultimately godless and pointless,” Harvey wrote. “So it’s still all up to me and only me? No help from the any spiritual source? Just one, perhaps– the one Jesus calls a liar and a thief.”

The halftime performance of Katy Perry at the 2015 Super Bowl seemed to be all about choice. While the show was a spectacle on a grand scale, the content was shady. Perry held out foolish choices with eternal consequences on an altar of defiance.

And this isn’t the first time she’s shown a preference for jaw-dropping rebellion. Many will recall her Grammy performance from 2014 where she pole-danced on a witch’s broom as the backdrop to her song “Dark Horse,” with lyrics selling sex and “magic” from which there will be “no going back.”

The Super Bowl gig was just a variance on the same theme with Perry astride a giant robot tiger. “Dark Horse” is a tune not about love or even a hot hook-up. It seems to be [sic] invitation to demonic possession, and the halftime theatrics recalled the Apostle Peter’s caution: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).” And sure enough, Perry and the red-eyed beast roared in defiant power. What kind of power, hmmm, do we think she’s offering?

Sexual confusion is a natural companion to spiritual apostasy. Perry proceeded to bend over in some suggestive twerking with Lenny Kravitz and then sang another hit, telling us that she “kissed a girl and liked it.” The lyrics go on to say, “I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.”

This 2008 song is a prime expose of the lies embedded in the homosexual agenda. Not that Perry leads that effort. Just like her flirtation with Satan, she’s merely joining and providing theme music for a movement that long pre-dates her.

There would be a predictable reaction if a well-known homosexual man crooned that he had “kissed a boy and liked it” and he “hopes his boyfriend don’t mind it.” If such a song even saw the light of day, it would be instantly labeled bigotry, hate and right-wing extremism. After all, one is never allowed to experiment in that direction. Satan and his mouthpieces will make sure such a notion never gains traction.

It’s tragic that a former Christian has left the faith she allegedly once knew to become a glamorous huckster of destruction to her millions of followers. Even her closing song of the evening, “Firework” suggests finding hope not in an eternal Christ before Whom every knee will bow, but in a spark that already exists inside each of us.

While “Firework” seems encouraging taken at face value (and the song is musically very appealing), in the context of Perry’s other messages simply comes off as ultimately godless and pointless. So it’s still all up to me and only me? No help from the any spiritual source?

Just one, perhaps– the one Jesus calls a liar and a thief.

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/5/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 2/5/15

  • Bobby Jindal and Rick Perry both spoke at American Principles Project events today.
  • Matt Moore explains that Christians really love gays, which can be demonstrated by the fact that they are not throwing them off of buildings, like ISIS does.
  • Michael Brown declares that "it's high time to push back against gay activism."
  • Bryan Fischer and Peter LaBarbera are outraged that companies are sponsoring the Creating Change conference.
  • Finally, James Dobson has lots of advice on how to properly raise girls that is just about as timely as you would expect: "These diverse skills used to be taught to girls in mandatory homemaking classes. Alas, most of these programs were canceled after the revolution of the sixties, and America became the worse for it."

Dennis Prager Says Everyone On The AFA's Israel Trip Is Repulsed By Bryan Fischer's 'Repugnant' Views

Throughout the week, we have been chronicling the fact that several dozen members of the Republican National Committee are currently in Israel on a trip organized by Christian nationalist David Lane and paid for by an anti-gay hate group, the American Family Association.

Until attention began to be focused on the trip, nobody over at the RNC seemed to have any problem with the AFA's long record of openly promoting bigotry. Then, in a pathetically transparent effort to alleviate the controversy surrounding this trip, the AFA stripped its most notorious bigot, Bryan Fischer, of his title as the organization's director of issues analysis and role as official spokesman last week, while keeping him on staff and allowing him to retain his daily radio program on the AFA's radio network.

It seems as if the AFA's feeble effort to wash its hands of Fischer's bigotry has failed, as Haaretz is reporting that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus backed out of the trip at the last moment, claiming that he had a funeral to attend in the U.S. but would be joining the group later. But now, according to the report, Priebus will not be joining the group at all.

The most interesting aspect of this report is the fact Dennis Prager, who is currently in Israel on this very trip, says that everyone who went on the AFA's dime is repulsed by Fischer and his views.

Prager, a right-wing radio host and commentator who is anything but a moderate in his own right, told Haaretz that Fischer's bigotry is "mind-blowing":

Earlier this week, the AFA distanced itself from its former spokesman who had made statements described by critics as anti-Semitic, homophobic and racist. The spokesman, Bryan Fischer, had said, among other remarks, that America is a Christian nation in which Jews and Muslims are not entitled to constitutional protection for their religious expression.

Prager said he completely supported the decision to cut ties with Fischer. “The second I heard what he said, I said that if he really said those thing they’re repugnant,” he said. “Everybody here thinks they’re repugnant. Frankly, I can’t believe that a human being in the 21st century would say such things. It’s mind-blowing.”

The Jewish talk show host said he had never heard of Fischer before, nor had he had any dealings with any other representatives of the AFA. “This is all brand new news to me,” he said.

Gina Miller: 'Tenacious Sodomite Tools Of The Devil' Are On A 'Hellish Crusade To Establish A Dominant Sodom West'

BarbWire content editor Gina Miller thinks that the “satanic” gay rights movement is pretty close to winning marriage equality across the country, which she believes will lead to the complete annihilation of freedom.

If the Supreme Court strikes down state marriage bans, according to Miller, “we will be on the fast-track to tyranny” and it will “become illegal to oppose homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage in any way.”

“If the Court does this, it will effectively abolish the First Amendment of the United States Constitution,” Miller said. “Do not imagine for a minute that churches will be exempt. They won’t. These tenacious sodomite tools of the devil will not rest until even churches are forced to accommodate the slaves of the infamous crime against nature and nature’s God. Even then, they won’t stop their hellish crusade to establish a dominant Sodom West in these terrible last days.”

Chief Justice Moore’s noble stand notwithstanding, it may be too little, too late for freedom and marriage in the United States. For many years now, the foot soldiers of the militant homosexual movement have labored tirelessly to infiltrate all the institutions of our nation and spread their vile campaign to “mainstream” perverse sexual behavior in our nation. They have taken one Christian business after another to court to force the violation of conscience on these people who resist their evil efforts. They have injected their lying, pro-homosexual propaganda into public school curriculums all across the nation. They have portrayed in schools and media and entertainment products a false, positive picture of homosexual relationships. They have managed to get their men on court benches across the land and in positions of power in our federal, state and local governments. And because there has been very little push-back from anyone, they are succeeding.

I have repeatedly warned that the goal of this radical sexual anarchy movement is not what its members purport. It is not for “equality,” “anti-bullying” or legitimate “civil rights.” It is to abolish all public opposition to the in-your-face expression of homosexuality and related behaviors (like “transgenderism”) and the destruction of the meaning of marriage. This is a back door way to crush our God-given, constitutionally protected rights to freedom of religion, speech, conscience and association. The Godless Marxists who have infiltrated our nation’s power structure have long wanted to subdue the American people under the tyranny that is so common throughout the world and human history, yet the system our Founders put in place has been a strong bulwark against such oppression. In the militant homosexual movement, these budding tyrants have found the tool they need to destroy our freedoms through increments of judicial malfeasance, leading to bad law and regulation, such as non-discrimination dictates that protect sexual deviants at the expense of the real rights of the American people.

In danger are the freedoms of all Americans who oppose being forced to accommodate or participate in any aspect of homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage; however, it is mainly Christians who take a bold stand against this movement and the rest of the sin-laden rot that has infested our culture. That’s why I say it is chiefly the rights of Christians that are the target of this satanic movement, although anyone who opposes it stands to lose their God-given rights as well.

We are set to watch the Supreme Court possibly issue the “unquestionable” imposition of same-sex “marriage” on the United States. If that happens, we will be on the fast-track to tyranny. It will become illegal to oppose homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage in any way. If the Court does this, it will effectively abolish the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Do not imagine for a minute that churches will be exempt. They won’t. These tenacious sodomite tools of the devil will not rest until even churches are forced to accommodate the slaves of the infamous crime against nature and nature’s God. Even then, they won’t stop their hellish crusade to establish a dominant Sodom West in these terrible last days.

Michael Savage: Obama Committing 'Medical Genocide' Through Measles Outbreak

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage claimed yesterday that the recent Disneyland measles outbreak is just a “clever way for the Alinsky crowd to shift the subject from their failed war on terror to their war on anti-vaccinators.” These left-wing Alinskyites, according to Savage, are controlled by the “medical-pharmaceutical complex” and want to bring about a McCarthy-style witch hunt against people who don’t vaccinate their children.

But this is all just the tip of the iceberg, Savage said. He went on to push the completely baseless conspiracy theory that undocumented immigrant children brought measles to America and said President Obama is responsible for a “crime against humanity” and “medical genocide.”

“I was asked about the origins of the measles outbreak in America and it’s pretty clear to me that it came in with the illegals,” Savage said. “We know that Obama committed a crime against humanity by dumping many, many, many, many ill people, mothers and children primarily, on us this summer unscreened, many of them brought in a killer virus, measles, tuberculosis and other illnesses.”

“Whoever has permitted this, and that would be the stooge at the CDC, the stooge at the NIS and Obama himself, are committing a form of medical genocide,” Savage added.

Despite Savage’s claim, the Central American children who fled to the southern border this summer mainly came from countries with higher vaccination rates than the U.S.

Ken Ham: Government Persecuting Us By Not Providing Taxpayer Funding To Creationist Theme Park

Creationist leader Ken Ham is incensed that the state of Kentucky is supposedly abridging his organization’s “fundamental rights” by declining to provide around $18 million in tax incentives to his Noah’s Ark theme park. The park is a planned addition to Ham’s Creation Museum and is intended to be, according to Ham, “one of the greatest evangelist outreaches of our day.”

Since Ham’s group plans to discriminate on the basis of religion in its hiring practices, it is no surprise that it won’t get public funds. But Ham claims that he has a “right” to receive taxpayer money and has filed a lawsuit against Kentucky, insisting that his organization, Answers in Genesis, is the real victim of discrimination.

He took his case to “Washington Watch” yesterday, where he told host Tony Perkins that Kentucky’s decision somehow violates his organization's right to the freedom of speech: “Anyone who wants to have freedom of speech in this nation, freedom of religion, free exercise of religion, needs to stand with us as we do this because that is what we are standing for.”

Ham charged that Kentucky’s decision amounts to anti-Christian persecution and means “that we can’t have the free exercise of religion.”

“The more that you don’t do anything and Christians don’t do things, we lose freedoms and we see the free exercise of religion under threat across this nation so we believe it’s time to stand for God’s people,” Ham said.

Perkins, who leads the Family Research Council, completely agreed and warned that everyone’s freedom is at stake.

Glenn Beck Tearfully Begs The World To Realize 'We Are Living In The 1930s All Over Again'

Every few weeks, Glenn Beck invites listeners into his studio to film a television program during which he takes their questions about whatever is going on in the world. Inevitably, dozens of people eagerly flock to hear from the oracle that is Glenn Beck as he provides them with crackpot theories and tear-stained stories about how the world is about to go up in flames.

And that is exactly what he did last night, responding to a question from an audience member seeking recommendations about how Christians should be praying for an end to the violence and instability in the Middle East by breaking down in tears as he warned that "we are living in the 1930s all over again" and very soon, governments will start rounding up Jews and Christians.

"One of those things that I know God told me is to decide who your family is going to be so when they do come for people, you decide now, am I going to turn my eyes from it or will I say 'you take him, you take me too,'" he said, choking back tears.

Noting that he used to joke with some of his staffers that if they came for the Jews first, he would hide them but if they came for the Christians first, they would hide them, Beck said that they now all realize that this is no longer a joke but is actually a very real possibility.

"It is getting scary," he told his audience, as he began to tear up again. "I promise you, we are living in the 1930s and it's going to sweep the entire globe. Pray for your family to wake up. Pray for you to be strong enough to stand. Just go home with honor. Just go home with honor":

Republican Leaders Join Anti-Gay Extremists For Insane Documentary

Is the government about to ban Christianity and turn it into a criminal offense? According to one documentary, the answer is 'yes' because the gay rights movement is determined to outlaw the practice of Christianity.

As Kyle reported, the “documentary” will include appearances from Sen. Rand Paul and former Gov. Mike Huckabee, both likely presidential candidates.

Reps. Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Steve King and Tim Huelskamp also make appearances, joining the likes of creationist leader Ken Ham, discredited pseudo-historian David Barton and even “ex-homosexuals.”

Scott Lively, the Religious Right activist who pushed for laws criminalizing homosexuality in Uganda and banning pro-gay-rights speech in Russia, is also a featured guest. Not only does Lively believe that Obama is the Antichrist and claim that gay wedding songs caused Noah’s flood, but he even wrote a book, The Pink Swastika, blaming gay people for the Holocaust.

The documentary is the brainchild of Janet Porter, a former talk radio host who runs the group Faith 2 Action and the social media outlet FreedomBook (formerly known as ReaganBook).

Porter once co-chaired Huckabee’s Faith and Values Coalition during his 2008 presidential campaign and the former Arkansas governor once remarked that “there are two Janet’s that I answer to: my wife Janet and Janet Porter.” Most recently, she has dedicated her time to passing an anti-choice law, known as the Heartbeat Bill, in Ohio which would criminalize abortion even before many women know they are pregnant. Several GOP leaders, including Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich, have endorsed her bill.

Porter has built quite a reputation for claiming that President Obama is set to literally imprison, starve and murder his political opponents and that the gay rights movement will destroy freedom as we know it.

Porter’s remarks on LGBT people include:

  • Claimed that pastors who won’t perform same-sex marriages will be “carried off into jail” in states with marriage equality laws.
  • Blamed gay rights for Noah’s Flood in a column entitled: “How Same-Sex Marriage Points To End Of The World.”
  • Claimed Jason Collins’ decision to come out of the closet will endanger freedom. 

That’s not all, as she has also:

  • Warned that President Obama will use the Swine flu to “round up American citizens” and throw them in “FEMA concentration camps.”
  • Wondered if former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson is the Antichrist.
