Dave Daubenmire: Government Will Stage Attacks From Far-Right Groups To Justify Gun Confiscation

Conservative activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire thinks “something stinks” about the recent string of mass shootings, predicting in a column in NewsWithViews.com yesterday that “somewhere, somehow, somebody is directing this entire effort in an attempt to take away our guns.”

Daubenmire speculated that the San Bernardino shooting was a botched attempt to kick off a wave of violence in which terrorist attacks from radical Islamists would be met with attacks on mosques by government agents posing as right-wing extremists, all as part of a duplicitous effort to pave the way for the confiscation of firearms.

While Daubenmire doesn’t know who is responsible — the Bilderbergers, the New World Order, or someone else — he does know that someone or something is orchestrating all of this mayhem.

I believe that terrorism is alive and well in America, but I don’t always believe the “facts” that we are told about the events. I believe that there really is a conspiracy involving those in “high” places. If you are deceived enough to actually believe the narrative coming out of the government and their partners in the media, I really don’t know what to say to you.

We are clearly being conditioned. Although it’s difficult to figure out who the players might be, there is surely no doubt that somebody is trying to set us up. Each time one of these “mass-shootings” occurs there always seems to be a few holes in the “official” story.

I’m not going to take the time to replay every one of the scenarios. Looking for “conspiracies” has become almost a cottage industry on the internet. But one thing that all of these events have in common is a cry for “gun control” and the disarming of law-abiding citizens as the solution to the problem.

Something stinks. Somewhere, somehow, somebody is directing this entire effort in an attempt to take away our guns. We can argue all day long about just who those forces might be, but there can be no doubt that someone powerful is diligently working to advance that agenda.

Imagine this: Another “random” shooting occurs unexpectedly somewhere in the heartland and as expected every available emergency unit responds to the scene. In the recent attack over 350 first responders answered the call. They are sitting ducks for carefully placed bombs remotely exploded when the emergency help races into the building.

Along with the explosion of additional bombs will be a small army of fellow “terrorists” who will descend on the scene with their weapons blazing. This would immediately decimate the first responders and with it a city’s ability to defend the citizenry. Dead cops can’t defend anybody.

What if this “attack” occurred simultaneously in 20 different cities in America?

Although I am not sure of the order of events the second event will be a staged “attack” of a mosque by “right-wing” Christians. Nothing would fit the narrative they have written any better than the poor, peace loving Muslims being attacked by a group of “fundamental” Christians who have not stopped clinging to their God and their guns.

Can you imagine the howls from the left? It would be a two-fer for them; another reason to confiscate all guns while at the same time further demonizing public enemy number one—the Christians. Our government has been warning us for years about the “hateful” pro-lifers lurking outside Planned Parenthood and the radical agenda that these hateful Bible-believers promote.

Some call it the NWO. Some say that “secret societies,” The Illuminati, Bilderbergers, United Nations, or others are behind it all. I am not here to point out who “the man behind the curtain” might be but to hopefully open your eyes to see that there IS a curtain and some shadowy figure is standing behind it. Un-American “President” Obama is merely a front-man.

Campaign Urges KY Gov. Matt Bevin To 'Nullify' The Supreme Court's Gay Marriage Decision

Today, Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission sent out an email to activists announcing a new campaign aimed at urging state legislatures to "nullify" the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision, beginning with "a national radio spot targeting the newly-elected Governor of Kentucky, Matt Bevin." 

"Nullification" is the fringe idea that states have the right to annul federal directives that they believe are unconstitutional and/or unbiblical and the radio ad compares resisting the gay marriage ruling to fighting the 1798 Alien and Sedition Acts, calling on Kentucky to take the lead in nullifying "the rogue Supreme Court opinion": 

Congratulations Matt Bevin on being elected governor of Kentucky and for standing up for marriage. Over 74% of Kentucky voters affirmed that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, but the U.S. Supreme Court created legal chaos by issuing an unconstitutional opinion. We need principled leadership now.

It was the brave Kentucky legislature that acted first when Congress passed the notorious Alien and Sedition Acts, depriving Americans for their First Amendment right to criticize their government. The famous Kentucky Resolutions declared the unconstitutional acts void and of no force. Other states followed suit, but Kentucky will forever have the honor of being the first state to legally check an abuse of power by the federal government.

Governor Bevin, we need Kentucky to once again lead the nation. Contact Governor Bevin and urge him to protect marriage and nullify the rogue Supreme Court opinion. Visit NullifyIt.com or call (502) 564-2611.

The 2015 Equine Posterior Award: Vote For Your Favorite Right-Wing Extremist

vote now

It will be quite a contest this year for who takes home People For the American Way’s annual Equine Posterior Achievement Award, which “honors” the individuals leading the Radical Right’s extreme and intolerant agenda.

As the presidential campaign continues to bring out the worst in conservative politics, with the help of right-wing politicians and pundits, there are many possibilities to choose from.

Cast your vote here>>

The 2015 Nominees:

Donald Trump: Who would’ve guessed that Donald Trump, who pushed discredited birther smears of President Obama during the 2012 election, would run such a vile and repugnant presidential campaign?

Whatever he’s doing, it’s working, as GOP voters have rallied behind the candidate who wants to ban all Muslims from entering the country, hopes to round up and deport over 11 million undocumented immigrants, demonizes Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers, levels sexist insults, makes up brazenly false claims about 9/11, tweets fake crime “statistics” based on a neo-Nazi graphic and pokes fun of POWs and people with disabilities.

Trump’s toxic politics of resentment and paranoia, however, hasn’t elicited strong rebukes from Republican leaders, who have seldom criticized the business mogul and have almost unanimously said that they would support him in a general election if he wins the GOP nomination.

Ted Cruz: The winner of the 2013 and 2014 “awards,” Ted Cruz, has maintained his image as a favorite of the Tea Party and the Religious Right movements, even though his only accomplishment in Congress seems to have been putting up pointless political battles, including one which led to a wasteful government shutdown, and becoming the most despised member of the Senate.

He has refused to condemn Donald Trump’s bigoted tirades and policies, while at the same time launching into his own rants about what he sees as the real source of intolerance in America: a nonexistent gay “jihad” on Christians.

Cruz is so intent on appealing to the extreme anti-gay Right that he has even courted the support of a pastor who wants the government to put gay people to death. The Texas senator has also vowed to criminalize abortion and maybe even certain forms of birth control, touting the support of an anti-abortion radical who has said that a just government would execute abortion providers.

Ben Carson: Ben Carson may think that “the power of God” is behind his campaign, but his poll numbers have been falling after he made a litany of false statements, flubbed basic questions about foreignaffairs and economics and ran a campaign based on absurd conspiracy theories, including his frequent claim that modern America is just like Nazi Germany. Carson does, however, have a few new policy ideas: the restoration of McCarthyism and the monitoring of liberal speech on college campuses.

But maybe the retired neurosurgeon will be vindicated if President Obama decides to cancel the 2016 election, a scenario he once warned of.

Mike Huckabee: While former Arkansas governor and Fox News pundit Mike Huckabee may be failing to break out in the polls, he has been effective in bringing farcical ideas once considered to be firmly on the fringe into the political mainstream. For example, Huckabee has touted a radical plan to issue an executive decree outlawing abortion and claimed that as president he would defy the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality ruling, which he warned will destroy America.

Huckabee is always on hand to cheerlead for the Religious Right celebrity of the moment, defending Josh Duggar after he faced scrutiny over a sex scandal and championing Kim Davis, the rogue Kentucky clerk who repeatedly flouted court orders to comply with the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision, even self-righteously volunteering to go to jail in her place. He also told pastors that the gay community seeks to destroy all of the churches in the U.S.

Greg Abbott: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has continued his predecessor Rick Perry’s legacy of turning the governor’s office into a source of national ridicule. He gained notoriety for describing discrimination as a Texas value, unsuccessfully attempting to prevent refugees from entering the state and embracing far-right fears that the Jade Helm 15 military exercises would lead to a federal takeover of Texas and imposition of martial law.

He ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor and regularly update him on the Jade Helm 15 trainings, after conservative politicians and media pundits whipped up suspicions that the Obama administration would use the drills to arrest Christians, conservatives and patriotic Americans. When Jade Helm 15 ended in September without any of these dire predictions materializing, Abbott’s office offered little information about what he discovered in his briefings on the matter.

Sarah Palin: After kicking off the year with an incomprehensible and winding speech to a conservative activist group and later losing her Fox News job, Sarah Palin is trying to return to the spotlight by angling for a spot in a future President Trump administration and promoting her new book, “Sweet Freedom.” Palin has used the book tour to promote her characteristically puzzling and vague policy ideas, such as her recent suggestion that we defeat ISIS by … defeating ISIS.

Mat Staver: When Kentucky clerk Kim Davis needed legal representation after she decided to defy the Supreme Court and block her county office from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, she turned to one of country’s most virulently anti-gay lawyers, Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver. Staver brought his penchant for dramatic remarks about the supposed persecution of Christians in America to Davis’ case, repeatedly comparing the rogue county clerk to a Jewish person during the Holocaust. He even tried to help Davis by making demonstrably false claims about a massive prayer rally in Peru, support from Pope Francis and death threats from the hosts of “The View.”

While his ludicrous legal arguments were ultimately unsuccessful and Davis eventually stopped preventing her deputy clerks from issuing marriage licenses, Staver used the case to capture the limelight for himself and raise money for his legal group, all the while insisting that Davis’ brief incarceration proved his point that American Christians are in fact under siege.

Ann Coulter: Conservative firebrand and author Ann Coulter has become an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, even crediting her new book , “Adios America,” for inspiring the Republican frontrunner’s harsh anti-immigrant ideas. At a rally with the GOP frontrunner, Coulter said that Trump’s campaign is proof that “God hasn’t given up on America yet,” hailed his plan to ban Muslim immigration as her “best birthday gift ever” and fantasized about serving as Trump’s secretary of homeland security.

Coulter has still found the time to talk about issues outside of immigration reform, such as her belief that women should be stripped of the right to vote:

Jim Bakker: Televangelist andsurvivalistfood salesman Jim Bakker has presented many doomsday prophecies to his viewers, specifically claiming that in the month of September, America would experience an enormous financial collapse, natural disasters and terrorist attacks, including one involving Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S.

While his September prophecies didn’t pan out, Bakker still has other dire visions, including his suggestion that ISIS has infiltrated every single church in the U.S., America is on the verge of descending into cannibalism and that he and others may go to jail due to the Jade Helm 15 military exercises and for criticizing political leaders.

Kevin Swanson: Colorado-based pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson had his breakout moment this year when Cruz and Huckabee appeared at his National Religious Liberties Conference, where Swanson repeated his claim that the government must execute gay people who fail to repent, declared that Harry Potter will lead to divine destruction of America, and advised that the best way to respond to a gay family member’s wedding is to show up covered in cow manure.

The event capped off quite a year for Swanson, who on his radio show criticized the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks as devil-worshippers, labeled HIV/AIDS as a sign of “God’s kindness” and “retribution” for gay people’s “sexual habit,” railed against “the homosexual Borg” and Taylor Swift’s “demon songs,” and warned that the U.S. Women’s World Cup team and the Girl Scouts would turn girls into lesbians.

Right Wing Round-Up - 12/10/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/10/15

  • The Palmetto Family Council in South Carolina is now operating a literal "Defend Christmas Freedom Hotline," which is exactly what it sounds like.
  • Erik Rush is convinced that the Left is afraid of him and people like Donald Trump because they are willing to say the things that "could lead to the undoing of a hundred years of their evil work."
  • Todd Starnes bravely stands with Jerry Falwell, Jr. because "sometimes I wonder who hates Christians more — the mainstream media or the Islamic jihadists." 
  • Direct mail pioneer Richard Viguerie has added him name to Ted Cruz's long list of right-wing endorsements.
  • Finally, some typically restrained advice from Ted Nugent: "You want to make America a safer place to live, work and play? If so, ban liberal zombies and their horse dung toxic-logic."

Sandy Rios Doesn't Care If Trump's Plan Is 'Deeply Bigoted' And Totally Unworkable

On her radio program today , American Family Association official Sandy Rios doubled down on her support for Donald Trump’s recommended ban on all Muslim immigrants.

She took issue with Fox News pundit Charles Krauthammer’s criticism of Trump’s plan, lamenting that he was trying to make Trump supporters look like delusional bigots.

“If that’s deeply bigoted, I guess I sign up because I think that’s a great idea myself,” Rios said of the GOP presidential frontrunner’s proposal. “I’m not sure how we’ll do it but I think it’s common sense. That’s my position on it and I’m not ashamed to say that.”

Gun Activists: Obama Raising Private Army Of Undocumented Immigrants, Refugees, Federal Employees & 'Soviet Troops'

Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America, perhaps more than any other activist on the Right provides a direct bridge between the Republican establishment and the chain-email conspiracy theories festering on the right-wing internet.

This was perfectly illustrated this weekend when, just one day after Sen. Ted Cruz announced that GOA’s chairman and Pratt’s boss Tim Macy would head up his presidential campaign’s “Second Amendment Coalition,” Pratt took to his “Gun Owners News Hour” radio program to discuss how President Obama is secretly building up a private army that can only be defeated if patriotic members of the military turn against him.

Pratt’s guest on Saturday’s program was Lawrence C. Mackin, the author of a new novel called “The Police Revolt of 2016,” which imagines a ragtag group of police officers and military personnel who must organize a revolution when “a group of radical Islamists allied with Obama's private internal army composed of units from the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA, are planning to establish an Islamic dictatorship within the United States,” a premise that Pratt said was “not too fictional.”

Mackin came prepared with a great number of conspiracy theories that he had found on the internet, telling Pratt that Obama signed a deal with Russia “to bring Soviet troops into this country in the event that we needed extra security, such as a Super Bowl event, for example” as part of his “plan to build up his private internal army within the United States.”

Also manning Obama’s private army, Mackin said, would be undocumented immigrants and “all the illegal aliens from the Middle East that he’s bringing into this country right now,” who are “all men.”

Mackin also informed Pratt that former DHS secretary Janet Napolitano “stated that she wanted to buy an AR-15 rifle — that’s a personal defense weapon — for every federal employee” so that they could also join “Obama’s private army.”

His book, he told Pratt, is not that “far-fetched” because all of these things are already happening in the Obama administration.

Pratt agreed that the premise was entirely realistic because “as much as the president has tried to cull the military of senior officers who are known to be pro-American … he certainly hasn’t gotten them all, so if it ever did come down the rubber meeting the road, the president really couldn’t be sure that he would be giving an order that would be followed.”

If the president’s plan to build a private army continues, Pratt said, “at some point the guys and gals would say, that’s it, he’s gone too far, today’s the day, let’s go, let’s roll.”

I think we’re at that point right now,” Mackin said, “but again, we’re just looking for a leader.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Pratt brought up the debunked rumor that the nuclear deal with Iran included a mutual defense agreement that would require the U.S. to attack Israel if Israel attacked Iran, which Mackin said was just more proof that Obama is a “radical Muslim.”

David Barton's Sidekick Launches Another Bid For A Seat On The Texas Supreme Court

Back in 2010, Rick Green, a former right-wing Texas state legislator turned David Barton's sidekick at WallBuilders, made a run for a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, only to lose in a run-off for the GOP nomination amid worries about his controversial history. Since then, Green has continued to serve as co-host of the daily "WallBuilders Live" radio program alongside Barton, while producing his own Bartonesque presentations on American history

Today, Green announced in an email that he will once again be seeking a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, not because he wants to but because so many people have practically begged him to run:

For months I've been approached by conservative leaders across Texas and asked to consider running for Texas Supreme Court.

Honestly, I wasn't very excited about it at first. I have a fantastic job and my family is loving the opportunity we have to live out the liberty that we are given. My family has been blessed with opportunities to travel across the country and teach Americans about the Constitution and our founding fathers. It doesn't get much better than that.

But as the calls continued, my children started reminding me of the principle I have taught them: that every generation is in desperate need of leaders willing to sacrifice convenience for the sake of liberty.

Today we have a Supreme Court, both nationally and at times in Texas, which has ignored the rule of law, has trampled on marriage and has refused to stand for the very freedom upon which our nation was founded.

The deliberate violation of separation of powers is a threat to the liberty we all cherish. It’s time to put a constitutional watchdog on the Supreme Court.

I am answering the call today with my family by my side, excited about the challenge and opportunity ahead. I NEED your support.

In a video announcing his candidacy, Green says that he does not even want to run for this office but simply must because "several months ago, our Texas Supreme Court handed down a decision that ignored our Texas constitutional definition of marriage." As such, Green says he feels obligated to run in order to replace one of the justices who supported that position:

For the record, the Texas Supreme Court never struck down the state's anti-gay marriage amendment, but did decline to prevent a lesbian couple who have gotten married in Massachusetts from getting divorced in Texas and that seems to the case that so outraged Green that he had no choice but to launch a bid for a seat on the court.

Ted Cruz Nabs Another Anti-LGBT Endorsement

Ted Cruz won a major victory in his effort to consolidate support from the Religious Right today when he was endorsed by Bob Vander Plaats, who leads the Iowa-based conservative group, The Family Leader.

Vander Plaats, a two-time gubernatorial candidate who in the two previous election cycles backed Iowa caucus winners Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, respectively, offers one of the most highly sought after endorsements in the state: Donald Trump reportedly joked that he would turn his plane around to join The Family Leader’s presidential forum if Vander Plaats would guarantee him his backing.

Vander Plaats is one of several right-wing figures to coalesce behind Cruz, who has attracted the support of ultraconservative activists like Troy Newman, who wishes the government would execute abortion providers; Ron Baity, a pastor who links gay rights to Ebola; Flip Benham, a convicted abortion doctor stalker who holds protests at gay couples’ weddings; Sandy Rios, a virulently anti-LGBT radio host and hate group official; Dick Black, a Virginia lawmaker with noxious views on marital rape and “baby pesticide”; and Cynthia Dunbar, who thinks gay rights advocacy is “the same type of thing that was done in pre-Holocaust Germany.”

While Vander Plaats and Trump would have made a strong team, as they are both birthers who admire Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Iowa activist said that Trump disqualified himself when he failed to show up at last month’s family forum. Instead, Vander Plaats hailed Cruz as “the most consistent and principled conservative who has the ability to not only win Iowa but I believe to win the nomination.”

The importance of Vander Plaats’ endorsement reveals how the GOP has moved ever so steadily to the right, as Vander Plaats is one of the party’s most extreme figures. Vander Plaats, as we’ve reported, may be sought after by GOP candidates but he should not at all be considered part of the political mainstream:

5) Slavery Rhetoric

Warning Republicans not to “abandon their base” by softening their opposition to gay rights, Vander Plaats insists that fighting same-sex marriage is not a losing issue for the GOP. He believes that Republicans should stand up and be proud of their refusal to support marriage equality, just as the party fought to curb slavery during its founding era.

“We actually stand for what God has designed because, just like with slavery, the truth is on our side,” Vander Plaats said last year in an interview with right-wing talk show host Steve Deace. “We can win this battle.”

He told another outlet that Republicans shouldn’t even take the position that the states should decide their own marriage laws since same-sex marriage, like slavery, is unequivocally immoral: “You don’t leave slavery up to the states, nor should you. It’s either right or it’s wrong.” In a speech in 2012, Vander Plaats said that a court ruling in favor of marriage equality should be viewed as judicial overreach on the level of Dred Scott.

During the last presidential primary season, Vander Plaats tried to get Republican candidates to sign a pledge that, among other questionable provisions, suggested that African-American families were more stable under slavery than they are today.

4) Conspiracy Theories

In Vander Plaats’ world, the right to speak freely about “faithful heterosexual monogamy” is under attack, “Sharia Islam” is a menace in American politics and President Obama’s birth certificate is missing. (Vander Plaats has praised Donald Trump’s quixotic birther crusade as “bold.”)

Perhaps no issue has Vander Plaats more concerned than gay marriage, which he has called a grave threat to liberty and a Satanic plot. One video his group produced showed images of terrorist attacks and shootings alongside stories about same-sex couples’ weddings and gay members of the Boy Scouts to make a point about the “darkness” sweeping America

3) Gay Marriage Predictions

In his campaigns against marriage equality, Vander Plaats has done whatever it takes to scare voters about the dire consequences of gay rights. He warned that the legalization of same-sex marriage would lead to “tyranny” and sanction “a parent marrying their child.”

He defended his group’s comparison of homosexuality to second-hand smoke by explaining that both represent “a public health risk,” adding: “If we’re teaching the kids, ‘don’t smoke, because that’s a risky health style,’ the same can be true of the homosexual lifestyle.”

Vander Plaats also took the time to criticize an Iowa anti-bullying conference that focused on the targeting of LGBT youth, saying that the state should instead be promoting abstinence-only summits.

2) Crush on Putin

Vander Plaats may still be weighing which Republican candidate to endorse this year, but he has already thrown his support behind one foreign leader: Russian President Vladimir Putin. When Putin signed a law that effectively bans speech in support of gay rights, Vander Plaats praised the Russian president for saying “you know what, don’t bring this homosexual propaganda into my country.”

He said that Putin now encapsulates the traditionally American values of “military might, decisive action, core values, morality, beliefs.”

“He’s taken what used to be our strengths, which has now defaulted into our weaknesses because of Barack Obama, no leadership, and he’s making them his strengths and he’s emerging now on the world stage as a newly discovered leader,” Vander Plaats said back in 2013.

1) No Separation of Church and State

While Vander Plaats’ prediction about gay marriage ushering in adult-child marriage has come true in exactly zero of the dozens of states with marriage equality, he was prophetic in one respect: Vander Plaats advocated for governors to ignore court rulings on the marriage question well before it became a widespread sentiment among conservatives.

Vander Plaats insists that a governor can simply set aside any ruling that violates his or her reading of the Bible, insisting that if a judge legalizes marriage equality in a state, the state’s governor should simply issue an executive order “that places a stay on the judge’s decision” since it “goes against the law of nature and the law of nature’s God, which means, it’s against the Constitution.”

Vander Plaats believes that the U.S. government must fall under God’s jurisdiction and follow “God’s principles and precepts,” not just on social issues like marriage but also in economic and foreign policies.

“If you believe what you say you believe, that marriage is foundational and it’s between a man and a woman, which is what He says he believes, then you got to stand up for that, because that’s the law of nature, that’s the law of nature’s God, that’s the Declaration of Independence, which this whole country was founded on,” he said last year.

Vander Plaats specifically pointed to the Supreme Court’s recent ruling striking down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, calling it a travesty that created a “constitutional crisis” by “defying the law of nature and the law of nature’s God” and “going against the document that predates the Constitution.”

Alex Jones: Democratic Party Is A Nazi Cult

While speaking with conservative commentator Tucker Carlson yesterday, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones insisted that “the average Democrat” now wants the government to round up and murder gun-owners and cheers on assassination threats against Donald Trump.

“It just seems like it’s now a dumbed-down power cult like the Nazis or the Soviets,” Jones said of Democrats, labeling them “deranged crazy people.”

Carlson agreed with Jones’ assessment that the Democratic Party is a “gang” that wholly relies on power-hungry intellectuals and people on welfare, with Carlson claiming the party is devoid of “normal people” and reliant on accusations of white racism to win votes.
