Sam Brownback: Anti-Choice Laws A Boon For Kansas's Economy

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is facing a series of bad economic news as a result of his radical economic “experiment”: sluggish job growthan exploding deficitcredit rating downgrades, inadequate pension and education funding, just to name a few. In fact, budget pressures have become so severe that Brownback recently had to reverse his no-new-taxes pledge.

But none of this seems to have bothered Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, who hailed Brownback’s experiment on last weekend’s edition of “Washington Watch,” telling the Republican governor that his anti-abortion rights policies deserve some credit in shaping the state’s (mythical) economic success.

Brownback agreed, telling Perkins that his decision to sign around a dozen “pro-life bills” is part of the reason that his state is growing.

“What you’re showing in Kansas is that you can have a pro-family agenda and at the same time a pro-economic growth agenda and the two are not — rather than being mutually exclusive, they are entwined with one another,” Perkins gushed.

“They really support each other,” Brownback concurred. “One of the problems we have in the country is we’re not forming enough families.”

Catholic League Boycotts St. Patrick's Day Parade Because 'You're Not Going To Double Cross Bill Donohue'

Last year, after organizers of New York's St. Patrick’s Day parade announced that a gay organization would be allowed to march for the first time, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue announced that his group would boycott the parade.

Donohue's excuse for not marching was that he had been "betrayed" because he was told that if a gay group was allowed to march then so too would an anti-choice group be allowed to participate, but then organizers did not follow through on that promise.

Yesterday, Donohue appeared on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax program to discuss the issue, asserting that "my own people, Irish Catholics, did me in" but now, at least, people have learned that "you're not going to double cross Bill Donohue."

Allowing gays to march in the parade is an "affront," Donohue said, because "gays have their own parade."

"Why does anybody who happens to be gay or straight have to have their own banner to march in anybody's ... parade. Just blend in like everybody else," he said.

"It's regrettable what's happened," he continued. "I'm very happy about the stand I took and I've been praised by a lot of people for at least somebody's going to draw a line in the sand. You're not going to double cross Bill Donohue":

Staver: Supreme Court Pro-Marriage Ruling Would Deserve 'No More Respect' Than Dred Scott

In a speech to this weekend’s Awakening conference in Florida, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver declared that a ruling in favor of marriage equality from the Supreme Court would deserve “no more respect than Dred Scott or Buck v. Bell,” court rulings that, respectively, denied citizenship to African Americans and allowed mandatory state sterilization of mentally disabled people.

“I say this: If the Supreme Court can’t get it right, or any judge get it right, on the fundamental, observable, natural created order of marriage as the union between a man and a woman, they can’t get it right on anything, that’s their own opinion, and it deserves no more respect than Dred Scott or Buck v. Bell,” he declared.

He warned the audience that a “clash is coming” between religious liberty and LGBT rights that is “unprecedented in American history.”

“Tax exemption, income tax exemption, property tax exemption, everything is going to be impacted,” he said. “You cannot navigate around this. This is a collision of two trains coming in opposite directions on the same track. We are on the precipice of a collision of unprecedented magnitude.”

Kris Kobach: Criticism Of Me Is Like The 'Cultural Revolution In China'

Earlier this month, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who’s a leading anti-immigration strategist in the GOP, took a call on his radio program from someone who speculated that President Obama might end criminal prosecutions of African Americans “regardless of the crime.” Rather than simply disagree with the caller’s theory, Kobach responded by claiming that while such a scenario was “unlikely,” it wasn’t “a huge jump” since “it’s already happened more or less in the case of civil rights laws.” “Never say never,” he explained.

Kobach’s willingness to encourage theories about an anti-white conspiracy led by President Obama understandably raised some eyebrows in Kansas, where the Democratic leader in the state senate called on Kobach to resign.

The Republican official at first defended his remarks, claiming that “the Obama administration has already done what the caller suggests in the context of voting civil rights statutes.” He cited a right-wing myth about the Justice Department’s handling of a New Black Panthers Party case to substantiate his claim.

But then, on his March 8 radio program, Kobach struck back, accusing his critics of subjecting him to a “struggle session” like those perpetrated against “class enemies” during the Cultural Revolution in China. He also seemed to reverse course by insisting that he actually told the caller he disagreed with him.

“The left wing went crazy,” Kobach said of the hubbub surrounding his comments. “And why did they go crazy? Because they wanted me to call the caller to my show, they wanted me to call him an idiot, they wanted me to call him crazy, call him outrageous, say that he was a numbskull for even suggesting such a thing. And those of you who are regular listeners to the Kris Kobach show know that I am courteous to my callers, even those I disagree with, and I don’t call them names and I don’t denounce them, I will tell them I disagree with them — which I did – but I will not be rude to them.”

“Now here’s the sickness,” he continued, “and here is where so many on the left have forgotten history and they are now doomed to repeat it. Indeed they are repeating it. This is dangerously close to what happened in the Cultural Revolution in China from 1966 to 1971.”

In struggle sessions, he said, “you had to denounce the person who had unacceptable views. And if you didn’t denounce, then you too were unacceptable. That was the evil of the Cultural Revolution, where you had to denounce people who had unacceptable views.”

“What has the left been saying this past week? They’ve been saying that Kris Kobach is bad and is wrong and he’s horrible because he hasn’t denounced a caller to his show,” he said. “He hasn’t humiliated the caller to his show, and therefore Kobach must share the same views and he has to denounce. This is so closely akin to what the Chinese communists demanded during the Cultural Revolution. It’s scary. And I would wager that most of the left-wing nutjobs who criticized me this past week haven’t even heard of the Cultural Revolution.”

Kobach seems to have missed the fact that it was his own comments, not his failure to publicly humiliate the caller to his show, that drew so much criticism.

Rick Wiles Warns Christians They Have A Year To 'Get Out' Before Obama Destroys America

End Times radio host Rick Wiles warned his listeners last week that they have a year to “get out” and “flee America” before Obama destroys the country.

Saying that he also predicted that “Obama would destroy” Syria, Wiles warned that the president is “a man of destruction, darkness and evil” and will “destroy this nation too.”

“There may be a year remaining in which you can get out and save your family,” he said. “I’m convinced the Luciferian Illuminatus that control this country will dismantle it over the next two years and the Phoenix will ascend to replace the old constitutional republic.”

Earlier this month, a guest on Wiles’ program similarly urged listeners to flee America before marriage equality causes God to destroy the country.

I prophetically told the Syrian Christians over this radio program in 2011 to flee the country. I repeatedly warned them via this radio program to get out of the country because Obama would destroy it and eventually Damascus would be leveled to the ground according to Bible prophecy. And if you would listen to those 2011 programs, you would hear me say that I was certain the Holy Spirit was speaking to the Christians in Syria to flee while they could still do it.

I’m going to say this to American Christians: Your time to flee America, which is now Babylon, is quickly disappearing. Obama will destroy this nation too. He is a man of destruction, darkness and evil. There may be a year remaining in which you can get out and save your family. I’m convinced the Luciferian Illuminatus that control this country will dismantle it over the next two years and the Phoenix will ascend to replace the old constitutional republic.

Wiles told listeners that Americans are now “taunting God” to strike the country with a “horrific calamity.” He noted that before the 2012 election he foresaw “a black ubiquitous membrane” descending on America to “suffocate the people,” and lo and behold the night that President Obama was reelected he “saw in my spirit a wicked, evil, dark vapor spreading across America.”

I no longer think the American people will repent and turn to God before a horrific calamity strikes the nation. In fact, I now believe they are taunting God, daring Him to do something.

In 2010, the Holy Spirit told me that a black ubiquitous membrane would descend over America and suffocate the people, freedom would be taken away. Tuesday night of November 6, 2012, was creepy. When it was announced on television that Barack Obama had been reelected, I saw in my spirit a wicked, evil, dark vapor spreading across America. I got on my knees and I asked God how and why Obama was reelected and his reply came immediately: ‘The tares now outnumber the wheat.’ It’s just that simple. It’s math. The scales have tipped in favor of wickedness. American now has more people who reject God and his commandments and his ways than who love him and obey him.

Later in the program, Wiles spoke with Tennessee evangelist Perry Stone , who lamented that people like him and Wiles who “are speaking the truth are not received by the general public.”

Stone told Wiles, for instance, that he thought at first that the September 11, 2001, attacks were “really going to help the country” by driving people to repentance, but “we never repented.”

“If we don’t repent, which leads to the enemies coming in your nation — according to Deuteronomy, one of the curses of a nation that disobeys God is I will appoint unto you terrorists,” he said.

Mike Huckabee: From The Pulpit To The White House, Seeking To Become America's Pastor In Chief

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee may have lost his 2008 presidential bid, in which he ran as a folksy “Christian leader,” but the heavy media exposure he got from it helped him to become a national Religious Right hero with his very own Fox News show.

Glenn Beck's Prophetic Burden: 'I Don't Want To Be This Guy'

With every passing week, Glenn Beck is more and more convinced that we are on the verge of World War III and that he is the only one who realizes it and so he is spending program after program laying out his prophetic vision about how Russia and ISIS are going to drag the world into a wholesale religious conflagration. 

The details of Beck's theory are too confusing to even bother trying to explain but, in short, he is convinced that ISIS is set on taking over all of Europe, which will allow Vladimir Putin to stir up dormant Christian nationalism that he has planted in Russia and neighboring nations which will allow him to foment resistance and ultimately push ISIS out, thereby guaranteeing Russia's fascist control over the entire region.

After Beck spent an entire segment scrawling an incoherent map on his chalkboard to demonstrate how this will all play out, co-host Stu Burguiere helpfully summed up Beck's convoluted theory as "Russia versus the Caliphate trying to divide up Europe," which prompted Beck to predict that in this coming conflict, the West will side with Russia and fascism.

"You watch. That's what's coming," Beck said. "That's what's coming."

Beck then sat back down at his desk and started once again complaining that he doesn't "want to be this guy" who spends all of this time laying out dire scenarios on his chalkboard, but that is what God has called him to do and so he will continue doing it "because there's nobody else that sees the world the way I see it."

"I don't want to be this guy," he said. "I'm tired of this. I can't tell you how much I want to get away from the damn chalkboard and I don't want to be the guy telling you the bad news. But it's part of my job and it's part of my calling and so I will do it."

If you don't want to buy into Beck's warnings, he said, you are free to ignore him but "there's no reason to call me a kook or anything else."

"I don't want to be this guy," he said, before urging listeners to tune in to this television show tonight where he will lay all of this out in greater detail ... on his chalkboard:

Tony Perkins: Obama Immigration Order Inviting Terror Attacks on US Christians

A direct mail letter from FRC Action dated February 2015 features a shadowy outline of a machine-gun-wielding terrorist with the warning:

TERRORISM: no longer “out there”

How they’re become a threat to YOU and your family

Inside, the letter from Family Research Council President Tony Perkins connects the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris, the attacks on Coptic Christians in the Middle East, and what he calls the Obama administration’s “illegal amnesty program.”  Perkins warns that “it is clear that American families are being placed in serious danger by President Obama’s illegal executive order on immigration.”

After discussing ISIS efforts to recruit American Muslims, Perkins states:

It is clear that some people are coming across the border with ulterior motives—not simply looking for working in hopes of sending money home to their families. These are not simply rumors from news reports; I have this firsthand from people in government and in organizations focused on national security.

Perkins even manages to work in marriage equality:

This President refuses to acknowledge that there is evil in the world. Terrorists are not simply people who grew up in bad neighborhoods and developed bad attitudes. These are people who want to kill us.

President Obama holds a worldview – and a view of America – that puts everything we value at risk. In the same way that he shrugs off a radical redefinition of marriage, in the same way that he shrugs off the persecution of Christians in other countries (and adopts policies that contribute to it in our own country), he minimizes the threat of Islamic terrorists.

And by connecting these threats to what he calls the administration’s “lawlessness,” Perkins is even able to work in Obamacare.

Perkins ends with a P.S.:

As “People of the Cross,” it is clear that you and I have been targeted by the terrorists. It is no longer a vague “concern.” It is a very real threat. Our President is not protecting us. We must move Congress to ensure your safety and the safety of your children and grandchildren. We will fight for you on Capitol Hill. Please help us. Give generously today. Thank you again.
