As Candidate For Congress, Ted Yoho Suggested Limiting The Right To Vote To Property Owners

Recently unearthed footage of Rep. Ted Yoho speaking at Berean Baptist Church in Ocala, Florida, during his candidacy for Congress in the 2012 election cycle shows the Republican politician suggesting that only property owners should have the right to vote.

“I’ve had some radical ideas about voting and it’s probably not a good time to tell them, but you used to have to be a property owner to vote,” he said to applause.

He also called early voting through absentee ballots “a travesty” and hailed Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s move — since rescinded — to significantly reduce early voting from 14 days to eight, saying Scott’s plan didn’t go far enough. “I think it needs to be cut less than that,” he said.

Later in the event, an audience member asked Yoho about the Bilderberger Group, the center of a popular conspiracy theory. The audience member claimed the group “wants to take us down,” and asked, “What do you think our chances are in the next two years of being able to vote?”

“That’s a scary question and that’s one of the reasons I’m running for Congress, because I fear for this country,” Yoho replied. “I grew up believing in the American dream, I’m a product of the American dream, no one gave my wife and I anything…we worked our tail off and we didn’t expect anything from the government.” (In fact, Yoho has admitted that he and his wife at one point “went on food stamps.”)

He added: “If we don’t do anything in two and a half years, it’s a scary thought, if you start reading some of the stuff I’ve been reading, you’re like, this is all by designs, it sounds like a conspiracy.”

Yoho had a similar response to the next questioner who inquired about why he is running for Congress: “I fear for the country, two and a half years from now we may not be able to vote.”

Glenn Beck Lashes Out At Those Attacking Liberty U For Allowing Him To Speak

Last month, Glenn Beck was invited to deliver a Convocation message at Liberty University where, in addition to delivering a prophetic message that God was coming to settle scores, he also preached Mormon theology, which did not sit well with certain Religious Right activists, such as Janet Mefferd.

On his radio broadcast today, Beck lashed out at "people who claim to be followers of Christ" in "the so-called Christian Right" who are attacking Liberty U for allowing him to speak, saying that they are progressives and "there is no difference between you and the people who are trying to run other people out of the square."

"You think you're standing for something," Beck said, "when indeed you're standing for hate and bigotry":

Gun Owners of America Speculates Obama Buying Weapons To Prepare For 'Confrontation With American Citizens'

Gun Owners of America spokesman Mike Hammond told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today that federal agencies are buying weapons because “the federal government is anticipating and preparing for confrontation with American citizens.”

Hammond was responding to a Brietbart report that the Department of Agriculture was soliciting for a contract for submachine guns. The story is similar to the undying conspiracy theory that the Department of Homeland Security solicited a stockpile of ammunition for nefarious ends . Hammond’s boss, Larry Pratt, speculated to extremist radio host Pete Santilli that the routine purchase was in fact part of President Obama’s plot to build a private army to overpower the U.S. military.

A Second Amendment advocate has a theory about why the U.S. Department of Agriculture is buying body armor and submachine guns.

Mike Hammond, legislative council to Gun Owners of America, says it follows a pattern of other federal agencies that seem to be preparing for war – against us.

"We suspect that the federal government is anticipating and preparing for confrontation with American citizens," he says, wondering aloud if President Obama is preparing for a dictatorship.

"What are the characteristics of a dictatorship?" Hammond asks rhetorically. "An individual who is bound not by the law, but by his own desires and his own goals. And that may be where we are now."

In an online story with more than 6,000 comments, Breitbart.com reported that the USDA put in a solicitation for lightweight submachine guns on May 7.

Still, Hammond wonders if the USDA closely watched the Cliven Bundy confrontation, when armed American citizens faced off against Bureau of Land Management agents in Nevada in past weeks.

The Department of Agriculture, like many federal agencies, has an investigative and law enforcement division. Agents of the DOA’s investigative division have since 1981 [pdf] had the authority to “conduct investigations of significant criminal activities involving USDA programs, operations, and personnel, and are authorized to make arrests, execute warrants, and carry firearms.”

These law enforcement divisions – which can be the subject of an honest debate that GOA is clearly not interested in having – have been growing steadily since the 1970s, long before Obama was president.

Tea Party Nation Wants Michael Sam's 'Nauseating' Kiss Off TV

Yesterday, Tea Party Nation president Judson Phillips sent members a column from his group’s website titled “Too Much Gay Everything,” which criticizes the media’s treatment of Michael Sam’s “nauseating” and “lugubrious” kiss.

The author, conservative activist Alan Caruba, writes that his anti-gay prejudice “is based on biology and history” and that “being gay is not normal.”

As is typical in anti-gay columns, Caruba goes on to warn that schools are promoting homosexuality and that “anyone with a handful of functioning brain cells” opposes legalizing same-sex marriage.

I like to think of myself as a tolerant person. I have, however, one prejudice that is based on biology and history.

Michael Sam, the first openly gay professional football prospect, made history when he was filmed by an ESPN crew giving his lover, Vito Cammisano, a long, lugubrious kiss to celebrate being selected in the National Football League draft on May 10th. The sight of two men kissing passionately was not something I and a lot of other folks wanted to see.

A spokesman for GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination, called the kiss “a significant milestone”, describing it as “touching.” No it wasn’t. It was nauseating to any heterosexual having to witness it or explain it to their children. We need to understand that being gay is not normal. Biologically, species exist because the male and female genders exist for the purpose of procreation and propagation.

Historically, gays have been held in disdain in every era of civilization. Today in the Islamic Middle East you can be killed for being gay, but you can also be killed for being Christian. In the West both actions are an abomination.



I don’t want to hear much about gays for any reason. The kiss was not something I would want young people to see on television or anywhere else. The bigger problem is that our younger generation, progressing through our schools, is being systematically taught to accept homosexuality as just another version of normality.



Being a youngster of any age is stressful enough, but being young and gay just adds to the stress and someone should tell them they will live with that for the rest of their lives.

Most certainly parents do not send their children to our public schools to learn about homosexuality, bisexuality, or being transgendered.

What a very large portion of the heterosexual population objects to is the appalling and aggressive effort of the homosexual minority to redefine marriage. Anyone with a handful of functioning brain cells knows that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage is an assault on the traditional, historical and global understanding of marriage, the keystone of any society.

Janet Mefferd Praises Matt Barber For Getting Christian Publisher Booted From NRB

When HGTV cancelled the planned reality show featuring David and Jason Benham after we wrote a post exposing their anti-gay, anti-choice, and anti-Islam activism, right-wing radio host Janet Mefferd was absolutely furious, calling us a "nasty, vicious, Christian-hating hack site" that lied about the Benhams and "needs to be sued for libel, defamation."

While Mefferd was fuming that our post was just the latest example of the "out-of-control power of the LGBT agenda to smear and marginalize decent Christians and force them out of their jobs," Matt Barber was engaged in a campaign (with the support of Mefferd, no less) against the Christian publishing company WaterBrook Multnomah over a book entitled "God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships" by Matthew Vines that was published by a sister imprint.

As we noted last week, as a result of this book, Waterbrook Multnomah has now been forced to resign from the National Religious Broadcasters and so, of course, Mefferd had Barber on her radio show yesterday where she congratulated him on his success:

Mefferd: I'm going to go a little off the reservation for a second here and congratulate you because, last week, the National Religious Broadcasters decided that it would pressure Waterbrook Multnomah to put up or leave the organization over this issue of "God and the Gay Christian" and they ended up resigning from the NRB and I give you credit because you broke that story.

Barber: Well thanks Janet and that is good news. And I'm glad that Waterbrook Multnomah at least is stepping back. At least they've done what they needed to do here and they resigned from an organization that recognizes Biblical truth and intends to remain faithful to Biblical truth. And since Waterbrook Multnomah has kind of, you talked about going off the reservation, since they've gone completely off the Biblical reservation on the issue of sexual morality, it's good that they're at least stepping out and they can be a liberal, pro-homosexual, pseudo-Christian organization to their hearts content.

Mefferd: Yep, that's right. So anyway, you were the man so I wanted to give you the credit for having a big impact. That was awesome.

To recap: when Barber broke a story that ended up getting Waterbrook Multnomah forced out of the NRB for being too pro-gay, "that was awesome" ... but when we broke a story that resulted in two anti-gay activists losing their television show, that was part of a "nasty, vicious" agenda that seeks to destroy anyone who dares to disagree.

WorldNetDaily Pundit Wants To Put Obama In Jail

Recognizing that the process of impeaching and removing President Obama from office is a “dead end,” far-right WorldNetDaily columnist Jack Wheeler suggests today that Republican politicians move instead to prosecute the president for purportedly violating the Constitution’s Appropriations Clause.

“All patriots now have the opportunity to actively encourage Republican governors to have their state prosecute the president,” Wheeler writes. If successful, “Mr. Obama can be thrown out of office and go to jail.”

There are many barriers to impeachment. First is, you need Congress to do it. The invertebrates who run the GOP don’t have the spine for it. Second, impeachment is merely the indictment, issued by a House majority. That’s a many month-long arduous process. The actual trial is held by the Senate. Even if the GOP gains majority this November, it will be nowhere near the 67 votes to convict required by the Constitution.

So impeachment is a dead end. We need a law – a federal law on the books that bypasses Congress and for which you do not need the Justice Department to prosecute. It turns out there is just such a law. Here’s the law’s background.

Article I, Section 9, Clause 7, of the United States Constitution states:

“No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”

This is the “Power of the Purse” clause, which Article I, Section 7, Clause 1, makes clear is exclusively held by the House:

“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.”



But how do you enforce this power? Here is what may well be the single most important question to ask in America today:

Given that the current President of the United States is determined to bypass the House’s appropriation authority and spend gigantic sums on whatever programs he wants or enforcing whatever executive orders he issues, is there an enforcement mechanism for his violating the power of the purse clauses in the Constitution?

The answer is yes. There is a federal law that specifically codifies the power of the purse clauses and provides specific punishment for their violation by any “officer or employee of the United States government.”

This punishment is “suspension from duty without pay or removal from office,” and up to two years in federal prison.



Mr. Obama needs to be prosecuted in violation of the Antideficiency Act. He can be criminally prosecuted, per §1350, for knowingly and willfully violating it.



If a State, at the direction of its governor and attorney general, initiated criminal proceedings against the president as an officer and employee of the United States government for willfully violating the Antideficiency Act, the case per the Original Jurisdiction clause, must bypass all lower courts and go directly to the Supremes.

The opportunity is there on a platinum platter for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Or Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Or any GOP governor wanting to fire up his 2016 presidential ambitions with rocket fuel.



We have the Constitution and the specific federal law to put an end to the tyranny. It’s time to go on offense. All patriots now have the opportunity to actively encourage Republican governors to have their state prosecute the president and to help conservative law firms build their case.

The Antideficiency Act is the means by which Mr. Obama can be thrown out of office and go to jail. Let’s use it.

William Gheen: 'If You Don’t Respect The Boundaries Of Countries, Why Would You Respect Boundaries Of Other People Sexually?'

William Gheen isn’t saying “that every illegal immigrant is a rapist or murderer,” but he does have to ask: “If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else?”

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC founder was a guest on LA’s “McIntyre in the Morning” May 14 to discuss his recent interview with the LA Times about efforts to make it easier for undocumented immigrants to obtain professional licenses.

Gheen argued to host Doug McIntyre that a very small number of undocumented immigrants “were brought here as little bitty babies” and that the rest “made a choice to invade this country, break in here, disrespect our laws, disrespect borders.”

“If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else?” he asked.

Gheen has long sought to paint undocumented immigrants as innately criminal, an effort that was given a boost last week by a hugely flawed report from the Center for Immigration Studies .

Gheen: A very, very small percentage of the millions of illegal immigrants in California and across the country were brought here as little bitty babies across the border. But that’s what they do to try to say, ‘Oh, look, here’s a person that had no choice whatsoever over this.’ Ninety-nine percent of the illegal immigrants walking around in this country made a choice to invade this country, break in here, disrespect our laws, disrespect borders. And you have to understand, boundaries and borders are very important because when you’ve got a person who’s willing to – you know, 99.9 percent of Americans do not go out there violating the boundaries.

McIntyre: Well, if you don’t have control of your borders, you’re not a nation. It’s that simple.

Gheen: If you don’t respect boundaries of countries, why would you respect boundaries of other people sexually or anything else? And that doesn’t mean that every illegal immigrant is a rapist or murderer.

McIntire: Yeah, we know that.

Gheen : We have a lot of people who are being killed.

Right Wing Round-Up - 5/19/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/19/14

  • Oregon has become the latest state to see its anti-gay marriage amendment struck down.
  • A smart take from Jeff Crouere: "It seems the politically correct liberals in charge of the NFL are admirers of communism. In Red China, Cambodia, Vietnam and other countries communist tyrants forced citizens into re-education camps to 'enlighten' their subjects about the wonderful 'benefits' of totalitarianism."
  • The Maine Ethics Commission is considering whether to fine the National Organization for Marriage $50,000 "for failing to register and disclose its activities in Maine’s 2009 same-sex marriage referendum."
  • NOM, for its part, announced that it would fight against any possible fine.
  • Finally, the AFA's Tim Wildmon invited Allen West to be a guest on his radio show and then completely forget why he had invited him on and what he wanted to talk about.

Larry Klayman Is Determined 'To Get The Truth' On Whether Obama Is 'Blackmailing' John Roberts

Larry Klayman may have absolutely no evidence to prove that President Obama used NSA surveillance to blackmail Chief Justice John Roberts into writing the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act, but the conservative legal activist claims he is just asking the question and pledges to “get the truth on this.”

And if Obama is (maybe) blackmailing Roberts, Klayman said in an interview with WorldNetDaily radio host Aaron Klein this weekend, then you know Hillary Clinton will probably take it to the next level.

“Unfortunately, there’s no way to sue the Supreme Court for decisions that it makes. There should be, and there should be a way to remove these justices for making decisions like that,” explained Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch who now heads Freedom Watch.

“But let’s take this possibility: Why did Chief Justice Roberts at the eleventh hour change his decision? He was going to side with the other justices and find that Obamacare was unconstitutional. Is it something that was dug up on him by the NSA or the CIA? Was that used against him to blackmail him?

“These are the kinds of things [the government is doing], and that’s why it’s so scary what’s going on with the NSA and the CIA. It can happen in a democracy. So that may help explain it, and perhaps we can reach these issues through the NSA cases that we brought, the NSA/CIA cases. I intend to get the truth on this.”



“If the government wants to destroy you, it has to access the information that it can use to do it, and that’s why this is so frightening. [It has] a greater capability than King George III had in 1776. The tyranny is greater today than it was at the time of the American Revolution.”

Regarding the status of the legal cases against government spying, Klayman said, “The bottom line is this: Our so-called government is trying to delay final adjudication of the constitutionality of the CIA and NSA’s programs, and as a ruse, President Obama is claiming he wants to make modifications to those programs. They’re not modifications at all.”

Klayman also said it’s not just the Obama administration citizens should be concerned about.

“Can you imagine Hillary Clinton having the power to use this?” he asked.
