Bob Barr Says Future Americans Will Remember & Thank Larry Klayman For His Rally To Oust Obama

Even though the millions of people that Larry Klayman confidently predicted would attend his anti-Obama gathering yesterday never showed up, at least one speaker thought the event, which attracted well under one hundred people, would have historical significance.

Addressing the rally — which called for a coup to oust President Obama and a “Second American Revolution” — former GOP congressman Bob Barr demanded the House of Representatives consider impeaching the president. Barr, who played a major role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is running for Congress again and has called for investigations into whether Obama should also face impeachment.

After calling Obama a “scoundrel,” Barr said that the poorly attended rally would be remembered throughout US history as the day the campaign to remove Obama from office was started: “Be it remembered that it started here today, November 19, 2013, just as it did on November 5, 1997, that Americans for generations to come will look back and say, ‘yes, good and faithful servants, you did your duty.’ We thank you and we will carry that torch forever into the future.”

Naturally, his speech ended with a Tea Party activist shouting: “Except Barack Hussein Obama is not the president, he’s a fraud; kick the bum out!”

Texas School Board To Decide This Week on Creationism in Science Texts

Back in September, we reported on attempts by non-biologist members of the Texas State Board of Education’s biology-textbook review committee to require textbook publishers to insert “creation science based on biblical principles” into high school textbooks used in the state.

People For the American Way joined a campaign led by the Texas Freedom Network to deliver 300,000 petitions to the state board urging them to keep creationism out of science classes.

The next month, TFN reported that none of the 14 major textbook publishers had bowed to pressure to include biblical lessons in the science textbooks they submitted for review to the school board. But the board of education still has to vote to adopt these textbooks, and as TFN notes, “In past years, ideologues on the state board have refused to adopt textbooks simply because they have political objections to factual content.”

The state board will hold hearings on the issue starting this afternoon, leading up to a final vote on the textbooks on Friday. We’re following along via livestream and TFN’s live blog, but in the meantime you can enjoy this video from September’s hearing of former Texas board of education chairman Don McLeroy explaining that including evolution in biology textbooks will actually “strike the final blow to the teaching of evolution” because students will see through the “weak” scientific argument:
 

GOP Congressman To Participate In Briefing With Notorious Anti-Muslim Group

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is teaming up with an Islamophobic fringe group, the Florida-based Citizens For National Security (CFNS), for a Capitol Hill briefing today at which they are planning to accuse the Council on American-Islamic Relations of “advancing its agenda of radical Islam” and backing a campaign of “extortion, intimidation and subversion.”

Republican members of Congress regularly demonize CAIR: One former representative even called the organization a “terrorist organization.” CFNS previously collaborated with then-congressman Allen West.

Either Wolf failed to do his due diligence before working with CFNS or simply doesn’t mind their record, as CFNS is a bastion of anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.

For example, CFNS chairman William Saxton believes that the Muslim Brotherhood has captured public schools in the US and is training students to become Islamic extremists:

“It’s a form of jihad. It’s like stealth jihad,” Saxton, who was quoted in the Fox News story, tells OneNewsNow.

“It’s not blowing up buildings and killing people, and being overtly terroristic,” says Saxton. “They’re terrorizing our kids in other ways, getting into their heads when they’re in middle and high school.”

This latest controversy is not new in Florida. The website at Citizens for National Security is heavily devoted to the topic, including a report of the ongoing textbook issue in Florida; a 10-minute instructional video devoted to the topic; and a “Teacher’s Guide” to correcting “Islamic bias.”

Saxton calls the Islamic-biased textbooks a “national issue” that’s been ongoing for some time.

“But it hasn’t really gotten a lot of media attention and a lot of traction amongst parents and grandparents of the kids, whose hearts and minds are being invaded by Islamists,” he says.

Saxton and CFNS frequently (and without basis) allege pro-Islam bias in textbooks; one Florida reporter described Saxton as fixated on a fear that history textbooks are “turning any distracted school kid into a raging jihadist.”

Another CFNS leader, Peter Leitner, has said the supposed Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy in the US is so complex that it’s “kind of like looking at a plate of spaghetti.” “You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to understand there really are conspiracies in the world,” he added.

CFNS claims it has identified thousands of members of “a multifaceted Fifth Column movement within our borders” that is “destroying the United States as it currently stands,” and is urging members to help them track and “identify ‘Islamic’ businesses, social and religious organizations, schools, etc. throughout North America.”

That’s right, it wants to create a database of every single Muslim-run business, school and organization in America.

Apparently, no group — no matter how paranoid and bigoted — is too extreme for today’s GOP to associate with.

Biker Belinda Bee: God's People Taking Country Back

One of the speakers at Larry Klayman’s rally launching the Second American Revolution was Belinda Bee, a coordinator of 2 Million Bikers to DC. The group initially came together in protest of a 9-11 event called Million American March Against Fear (which some dubbed the Million Muslim March). At the time the biker group was denied a permit to protest, which Bee told Fox News was part of a “political agenda.” In the end, thousands of bikers did roll through Washington that day. At Klayman’s rally, Bee expressed contempt for President Obama – she referred to him as “whatever it is in office over there” – and for the federal government.  “We are homeland security. We are our own government. The government does not tell us what to do. We’re supposed to tell them.”

By teaming up with Klayman and his call for Americans to overthrow the current government and start over, the biker group seems to have expanded its vision far beyond an annual 9-11 protest. Bee’s remarks were heavily focused on America’s relationship with God, and she seemed to call for abandoning every constitutional amendment after the first ten:

Our mission statement starts off with: We at 2 Million Bikers to DC do believe in God, Country, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights – as written. That means there should not be change. We don’t care about all of those Bill of Rights that came after the original. We want to go back to our Founding Fathers’ views and beliefs. We are one nation under God, and without God, we are not America. I’m gonna tell you right now, the first thing that I hear somebody talk about is ‘I have freedom from religion.’ No sir that’s not what it says, it says freedom of religion. Do not preach to me about this not being a God country. It was founded on God. They came over here and left to come here to be able to have the freedom to be a Christian, and to have the God that we have, that brought this country together, that this country was created after.

Bee may want to think through her position: getting rid of all those later amendments and returning to the vision of the founders would not only make slavery legal and abolish women’s right to vote, it would also allow President Obama to run for a third term.

Bee also targeted the supposed threat of Sharia law and churches that accept “perversion” – presumably homosexuality.

You know what, y’all? I want to explain something. This is no longer about Democrat. This is no longer about Republican. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to enslave us. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to push their Sharia law on us. Let me tell you something. [audience: “Christian blood in this earth!”] That’s it. We are God’s people and if we don’t get our own churches to stand up and quit submitting and talking about, it’s ok for us to be different. Perversion is perversion and per the Bible it is not acceptable in God’s eyes. And we’ve got to quit letting others tell us it’s ok. It’s not. … And who are we?  We are God fearing Americans. We are homeland security, and we’re taking our country back.

Bee and a colleague said the group is launching political organizations in every state, will mount a major campaign in 2014, and is preparing to launch a social networking site that will be based outside the United States and therefore beyond the prying eyes of the NSA.

Larry Pratt And Alex Jones Blame Mass Shootings On 'Inherently Violent' Liberals

One of Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt’s stock lines is about how the one exception to his anti-gun-law absolutism is that he supports banning “angry liberals” from owning firearms.

The topic came up again yesterday when Pratt joined conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to discuss their joint effort to “take over the Republicans” with Tea Party leaders such as Ted Cruz and Ken Cuccinelli.

Jones went off on a tangent on gun violence, claiming that “almost all” mass shooters come from “liberal Democrat families” and are “all into weird occult stuff and on a bunch of drugs and are Satan worshippers and video-game heads.”

“And I’m getting blamed for what people with green hair that worship the Devil are doing?” he asked.

Pratt agreed, saying that “angry liberals should probably be the exception to our purist Second Amendment views” because liberals “are inherently violent.”

Klingenschmitt: West Point Chapel Desecrated By 'Acts Of Sodomy' Performed On The Altar

Earlier this month, two male West Point cadets were married at U.S. Military Academy's Cadet Chapel and "Dr. Chaps' Gordon Klingenschmitt is predictably disgusted because the altar has now been desecrated by having acts of sodomy performed upon it.

"When they take over the building," Klingenschmitt said, "that altar has now been desecrated; it's no longer sacred in the eyes of the Christians who believe the Bible because it's been consecrated with acts of sodomy performed on the Christian altar":

Movieguide: Hunger Games No Longer Gay Nazi Flick, OK To See

Last year, the Religious Right group Movieguide was hysterical about the supposed dangers of The Hunger Games, fearing that the book and film series promote homosexuality and glorify dictators like Adolf Hitler.

At The Awakening 2012, Movieguide head Ted Beahr repeatedly attacked The Hunger Games, blasting parents who brought their children to see the series’ first film for “corrupting your children” with “death and humanism and evil.” Beahr also linked The Hunger Games to promiscuous sex and abortion.

But today, Movieguide announced that the second installment in the movie trilogy, Catching Fire, “has a strong moral worldview” and even posted an interview with stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson discussing the film’s “moral lessons.”

Robertson: 'People Will Die' From Obamacare

Betsy McCaughey, who has built a career around disseminating misinformation about the health care reform law — even launching the “death panels” smear — joined Pat Robertson on the 700 Club today, where she was inaccurately labeled as a “health policy expert.”

McCaughey agreed with Robertson when he warned that “people will die” as a result of the Affordabe Care Act. “Some people may even die,” she added.

The televangelist, in turn, was awestruck by the “amazing” McCaughey, who he said “knows what she is talking about.” Co-host Wendy Griffith agreed, saying, “She was amazing, that was the best interview I’ve heard on Obamacare.”

Ted Cruz, Larry Klayman And The GOP Nullification Strategy

Last night on PoliticsNation, Rev. Al Sharpton highlighted Larry Klayman’s rally at the White House, which was billed as an attempt to overthrow President Obama.

Sharpton featured Right Wing Watch footage of the event, including rants from Klayman, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, birther sheriff Richard Mack and a George Washington impersonator, with speaker after speaker calling not only for the House to impeach Obama but also for a second American Revolution.

Sharpton noted that Ted Cruz, who joined Klayman at an event last month at which Klayman called for an uprising against the president, has also been floating impeachment rhetoric.

“Ted Cruz has flirted with these fringe elements all the way through,” MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe told Sharpton.

The GOP’s shift to the far-right fringe — led in part by Cruz — has gone so far that the party is now refusing to even let the Senate vote on President Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees.

Sharpton added that Republicans “are trying to nullify the fact” that Obama won re-election by refusing to let the president fill empty seats in the executive branch and on the courts . “We have never seen anything like this where you are just nullifying the powers of the president to nominate people to the courts, people to the administration, this is unprecedented,” Sharpton said.

Operation Rescue Vows To Try Again In Albuquerque

Operation Rescue took a critical role in the campaign to pass a municipal 20-week abortion ban with nationwide implications in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which was defeated yesterday by a ten-point margin. Now, the extremist anti-choice group says it is looking “forward to another try” at banning later-term abortions in the city.

Operation Rescue spokeswoman Cheryl Sullenger told LifeSiteNews that the group will continue its efforts to enact the Albuquerque ban. She even tried to explain away the measure’s decisive defeat by arguing that voters were confused by the ballot language:

“Pro-life supporters may have suffered a political loss, but we are far from defeated. We’ll be back,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue, who was in Albuquerque for the vote. “It is clear that the people are uncomfortable with late-term abortions and would like to see them end. We learned a lot from this campaign, and we look forward to another try that will better reflect the true feeling of the voters on this subject."

Priests for Life founder Fr. Frank Pavone said pro-life activists in the city "should not feel discouraged" by the defeat of the measure. "The fact is, of course, that children have in fact been saved through this effort, simply because we have raised the issue of fetal pain, which does not even cross the minds of many abortionists," he said.



“We understand that some supporters of the ordinance actually voted against it because they thought they were voting against abortion. That is an issue that can be easily corrected next time around,” said Sullenger. “Now the local activists in Albuquerque have been seasoned and things just might turn out differently if we can get another bite of this apple.”



But according to Operation Rescue, the pro-life campaign to protect unborn babies after twenty weeks from abortion succeeded in focusing the attention of the world on the matter of late-term abortions and created a template for activists in other communities to use to affect change in abortion laws in their communities, rather than relying on Washington D.C.

“I am so very proud of the work done by Albuquerque activists, especially Bud and Tara Shaver, who poured three years of their lives into exposing abuses at the largest late-term abortion abortion clinic in the nation,” said Sullenger, who worked with the Shavers for a year at Operation Rescue Headquarters in Wichita, Kansas. “They are the best and it was my honor to work with them on this campaign. We can only expect more exciting things in the future from them as their work to end abortion in New Mexico continues.”
