Steve King: Dreamers Joining Military Are 'Mercenaries,' Not 'Patriots'

In an interview with Iowa TV station KIMT last week, Republican Rep. Steve King implied that undocumented immigrants who wish to join the military are “mercenaries” rather than “patriots.”

King falsely stated that those who would be granted a path to citizenship for military service under the DREAM Act or two bills being considered in the House “lied to get into the military.” The proposals would grant a path to citizenship to some undocumented immigrants by allowing them to enlist openly.

“It isn’t that we have to hire mercenaries to put on a uniform,” King said. “We have always had an adequate number of American patriots to step up who are lawfully present in the United States, most of them citizens.”

King also attacked the Justice Department’s new clemency review guidelines that will consider clemency for nonviolent drug offenders serving sentences under laws that have now changed. The uneven application of draconian drug sentencing laws has disproportionately landed African Americans in jail, often for lengthy sentences, although whites and blacks use illegal drugs at roughly the same rates.

But King dismissed the reasoning for the clemency saying, “Now the administration is preparing to let out as many as 200,000 felons out of prison because he thinks that the law has been unfairly applied to certain demographic groups of people.” He also claimed that the move is unconstitutional, even though the Constitution explicitly grants the president the power to issue pardons.

“There will be crimes committed on the streets of this country in multiple ways and multiple times because of this decision,” King warned.

Christian Post Blogger: Keep Marijuana Illegal Because Pot Users Are Bound For Hell

Christian Post blogger Michael Bresciani believes lawmakers should maintain marijuana prohibition laws because he thinks the Book of Revelation condemns pot users to Hell.

Bresciani, who leads off his column by wondering if President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder “still smoke pot today,” laments that “America’s lads and lasses of lassitude can now legally suck the lingering fumes of today’s latrine of loose and licentious liberalism deeply into their lungs led on by a former ‘Choomer’ – the President of the United States.”

After citing a Bible verse that warns against excessive drinking to argue that God is “not interested in having entire nations soaked in psychotropic silliness, the munchies and long naps,” Bresciani claims that pot users are effectively “sorcerers” who “will not, cannot inherit the final kingdom of God.”

“The eternal destiny of the druggers’ and the ultimate loss of their living souls not being mentioned is more proof that the reprobation of the last days is going ahead at full steam,” Bresciani writes. “We who preach this gospel or give prophetic warnings can only reiterate that this is a day for Americans to wake up, not to go headlong into a drugged stupor. Our future depends on it.”

Barack Obama, once a proud member of the Choom Gang, is now off sucking in the last smoke of a nation in deep decline.

Obama stated that smoking pot is no better or worse than using alcohol, America’s lads and lasses of lassitude can now legally suck the lingering fumes of today’s latrine of loose and licentious liberalism deeply into their lungs led on by a former ‘Choomer’ – the President of the United States.

Do the Prez and his AG, Eric Holder, who both admitted to smoking weed, still smoke pot today? Probably not, but then — who knows? It doesn’t matter, the stage has been set, the example has been set, and the bad influence is bearing its fruit.



The comparison of pot use to alcohol use leads directly to the scriptural warning that being drunk or abusing alcohol is strictly forbidden; why would pot be any different? Using the inceptive verb “methusko” in the Greek language means the process of intoxication and can and is applied to any drug or alcoholic beverage use, not just the use of alcohol.

“And be not drunk (Methuo) with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.” (Eph 5: 18)

Of course, trying to tell drinkers and pot heads that they should replace their habit with the infilling of God’s Holy Spirit would be about the same as asking spelunkers to become sky divers. Yet, we can safely assume that if God does not want the Christians to be abusers then he is also not interested in having entire nations soaked in psychotropic silliness, the munchies and long naps — on a daily basis.



The term drugs and drugger may not be found anywhere in scripture which emboldens the naysayers to think it has not been addressed. The mistake is that the bible uses the word sorcery in place of drug abuse.

The Greek word for drugs is “pharmakos” and it is used in the prophetic sense in the book of Revelation as a strong warning that those who use drugs will not, cannot inherit the final kingdom of God.

“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Rev 21: 8)

Now, that this serious sin has been reduced to a social ‘issue’ we can watch an audience debating before an entire nation how the loss of a few brains is worth considering. The eternal destiny of the druggers’ and the ultimate loss of their living souls not being mentioned is more proof that the reprobation of the last days is going ahead at full steam.

We who preach this gospel or give prophetic warnings can only reiterate that this is a day for Americans to wake up, not to go headlong into a drugged stupor. Our future depends on it.

WorldNetDaily Defends Donald Sterling From Racism Accusations

After jumping to the defense of Cliven Bundy, WorldNetDaily is now troubled by the negative reaction to racist statements allegedly made by LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

In a column today titled “Thought Police On The Loose,” WND pundit Barbara Simpson complains that allegations of racism against Sterling and Bundy, along with criticism of then-Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich over his donation to the Proposition 8 campaign, are “frightening” signs that America is embracing Nazism.

She laments: “Sad, isn’t it, when truth is considered ‘offensive’?”

Say the “N” word, and you’re finished – unless, of course you’re a person of color who claims dibs on the use of that word, anytime, anywhere.

Say something that even smacks of criticism of people of any other color than white, or any other nationality than American, or any status other than legal American citizen – and you’re finished professionally and otherwise.

Say something that indicates you do not go along with the party line about total acceptance of anything gay, and you will find you do not have the right to participate in our current culture.

It’s not hard to find examples, which in itself, is frightening.



But as of Saturday night, the identities of the voices were not verified. Who are they?

Hmmm.

Let’s see.

We don’t know where the recording came from. An illegal taping of a phone call? If so, who recorded it and who gave it to TMZ? More importantly, why?

Was it to jeopardize the outcome of the playoffs – in essence, throw the series? No doubt there’s a lot of money riding on the games.



Then there’s Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who was the target of government overkill, in more ways than one, to get him off his land.

In an interview with the New York Times, he was selectively quoted in a way that portrayed him as – guess – racist!

Why?

Because he recollected what government housing for blacks was years ago and what has happened to them since, and related that to slavery.



Funny, I said that on my KSFO talk show years ago – just looking at the dependence of so many blacks on Uncle’s largesse is comparable to being a slave to the government. You do what you’re told, or you get nothing.

He spoke of the breakdown of black families, the number of single parent families, the high incidence of black abortions, the number of blacks in prison, unemployment and dropout levels.

All illustrate a breakdown of black culture because of government dependence.

No, it’s not “slavery,” but it really is, just with a different face.



Sad, isn’t it, when truth is considered “offensive”?



If people don’t go along with the “accepted” view on anything controversial, you’re fair game to be denounced, insulted and deprived of your property and your career.

We’re not on a slippery slope; we’ve slid nearly to the bottom.

When the government gets full control of all the information in our medical, school, IRS and all other records, we will have no privacy or secrets, we’ll not be permitted to think anything the government doesn’t first approve and we’ll have turned into a regime Hitler could only have dreamed about.

The Never-Ending Tale Of The Little Girl Who Could Not Pray

Last week, we wrote a post about the fact that the story at the center of a recent column by Todd Starnes claiming that a young girl had supposedly been told that she was not allow to pray before eating her lunch at school had been definitively debunked after the shool in question conducted an investigation and "found zero evidence an incident ever occurred."

In a gesture of goodwill, the school offered an apology to the family nonetheless and it was seemingly accepted through their attorney, Jeremy Dys of the Liberty Institute, who issued a statement saying:

"We are grateful for the apology offered by Seminole County Schools. The Perez family gladly accepts this apology, along with the assurances to the community by the School Board that students in Seminole County School are free to exercise their First Amendment freedoms while at school."

That should have been the end of the entire saga, but apparently Dys and the family are intent on keeping it going (presumably to benefit Todd Starnes forthcoming book) a little longer and have now reversed course by rejecting the school's apology, accusing the school of never having done an investigation in the first place, and threatening legal action:

Two days after stating that Gabriella Perez's family had accepted the apology, lawyer Jeremy Dys said their position changed after reading the comments of district spokesman Michael Lawrence in the Orlando Sentinel.

Dys said it is clear now the district's response wasn't "a real apology." In addition, "we're not really confident the investigation actually took place," he said.

He sent a letter to Seminole schools on Friday requesting video footage from the school, emails to or about the family and phone logs relating to the case, including documentation of harassing or negative phone calls.

Gabriella, a 5-year-old kindergartner, told her parents that a staffer at Carillon Elementary said she could not pray over her lunch sometime in March. Lawrence, the district spokesman, said Wednesday an investigation had turned up "zero evidence" the incident occurred.

The girl's father, Marcos Perez, is vice president of sales for a Christian book publisher promoting a book about "the attack on traditional values" in America. The family began homeschooling Gabriella after she described the cafeteria incident.

Dys' letter also claims Lawrence made "false and defamatory statements publicly and intentionally" about Gabriella and her family, and requested that he be disciplined.

"Mr. Lawrence went out and essentially called our client a liar," Dys said Friday.

The school district did an investigation into the alleged incident and concluded that "there's no proof whatsoever" that it even occurred and that the person identified by the young girl as having told her not to pray was nowhere near the lunchroom at the time it supposedly happened ... and now the very people who brought these allegations are threatening legal action, claiming that they are the victims of "false and defamatory statements" because their claims turned out to be bogus.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/25/14

  • Glenn Beck spoke at Liberty University today. There was some crying involved.
  • A poll commissioned by Citizens for Community Values Action shows, shockingly, "a decline in support for same-sex marriage in Ohio."
  • Robert Oscar Lopez warns S.E. Cupp not to support gay adoption because, in doing so, "we are encouraging a whole new generation of homewreckers – gays who want to be parents and figure out that the cheapest way to do it is to seduce someone of the same sex who is currently in a rocky marriage with children."
  • Right-wing activists have released a Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi report. We are sure it is very informative.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer proudly declares that "I am the only conservative in America" that is willing to come to Cliven Bundy's defense.

Glenn Grothman Fears ENDA 'Gives Preferences,' Denies Climate Change Exists

Wisconsin GOP state senator Glenn Grothman promised in an interview with Voice of Christian Youth America last week that he will be “an outspoken opponent” of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) if he wins his race for Congress.

Grothman warned that ENDA “gives preferences” and an unfair advantage to LGBT employees: “It’s not only you can’t discriminate, it’s a preference because all of the sudden employers have to worry, ‘if I don’t hire this guy, if I don’t promote this guy, I’m going to be sued for discrimination.’”

Grothman also suggested that affirmative action is depressing job growth because “you always got to worry about being sued for who you hire, who you didn’t fire, who you promoted, who you let go.”

He added that environmental regulations are hurting the economy and mocked efforts “to reign in global warming, which doesn’t exist anyway.”

“This environmental stuff, this is the idea that is driven by this global warming thing. Global warming is not man-made and there is barely any global warming at all, there’s been no global warming for the last twelve or thirteen years. I see a shortage of Republicans stepping up to the plate and saying, ‘look, this global warming stuff is not going on,’” he said.

In the same interview, Grothman attacked Secretary of State John Kerry for supposedly upsetting God when he denounced Uganda’s anti-gay laws.

Linda Harvey Hails Muslim Taxi Drivers For Refusing 'Gay Games' Advertisements

Mission America host Linda Harvey is overjoyed that some Muslim taxi drivers, while “sometimes kind of scary,” are refusing to drive cabs with advertisements for the upcoming Gay Games in Cleveland. But at the same time, Harvey continues to warn that gays and Muslims are working together to push an anti-Christian agenda.

“I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s going to be a big gathering of homosexuals in the city of Cleveland in August for what is called the Gay Games,” Harvey said. “Yes I know, it seems that these folks can’t stop proclaiming in public the sinful behavior they’ve told us for years they wanted to keep private.”

“About twenty-five cab drivers who are Muslims are refusing to drive cabs that display the Gay Games promotional signs. And you know what, I totally agree with them, good for them for having the courage to stand up and do this.”

She went on to allege that the “homosexual community” is silent on the issue, even though many gay news outlets covered the story. Harvey blamed the purported silence on “fear” of the Muslim community.

“Unlike Christians that the LGBT folks keep trying to paint as haters and harassers, Muslims really are sometimes kind of scary or they have scary friends,” she said.

Moments after saluting this anti-gay move by a group of Muslim taxi drivers, she then alleged that Muslims and gays are working together to bring down Christianity.

“But there’s something else. Could it be that the two groups have a common denominator that transcends the homosexuality issue, and that is they both essentially despise Christians?” she explained. “Sadly, I believe that gets to the heart of what is going on, whether these folks admit it or not.”

Bryan Fischer Is Inadvertently Making Sense: 'There Are Consequences For Making A Foolish Declaration'

As we have noted several times before, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them and he continues to demonstrate this fact regularly on his radio program, as he did once again today.

Fischer spent part of a segment discussing the fact that Dan Haseltine, lead singer of the Christian rock band Jars of Clay, had announced his support for gay marriage. In response to this announcement, Fischer said, some Christian radio stations have begun boycotting the band and refusing to play their songs while some fans have deleted their albums from the music libraries.

Haseltine, not surprisingly, does not appreciate such responses, but Fischer was entirely unsympathetic, declaring (approximately 5:00 in) that it was because "you are rejecting the authority of the word of God and maybe Christians have a problem with that."

"If you want to do that, that's fine" Fischer added, "but then don't complain when there are consequences for making a foolish declaration like that":

For once, we completely agree with Fischer! As we always say, the flipside of the First Amendment is that while everyone is free to say whatever they believe, that doesn't mean that they are also exempt from suffering the consequences of voicing those beliefs.

Of course, it is usually the Religious Right that loudly screams "persecution" anytime someone that they agree with actually suffers consequences for making foolish declarations ... like when Bryan Fischer said that A&E's decision to suspend Phil Robertson for making anti-gay comments was proof that Christians were being persecuted for refusing to accept the Mark of the Beast:

When Christian radio stations refuse to play Haseltine's music, that is just the "consequences" of his "foolish declaration," according to Fischer.

But when A&E temporarily suspended Robertson for his "foolish declaration," Fischer went on and on about how Christians were being oppressed, persecuted, and prohibited from engaging in commerce.

Glenn Grothman Says John Kerry Upset God By Condemning Uganda's Anti-Gay Crackdown

Last week, GOP congressional candidate and Wisconsin state senator Glenn Grothman told the hard line anti-gay group Voice of Christian Youth America that Secretary of State John Kerry was wrong to condemn Uganda’s brutal anti-gay law because his words upset God.

Grothman attacked Kerry’s condemnation of Uganda’s law, warning that the secretary of state will agitate God by sending “scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is.”

“Look at what’s become of our country,” Grothman said.

He claimed that while America once had “positive influence on Africa” by “sending missionaries,” now the US is hurting the continent by opposing Uganda’s draconian law.

Instead, what we have is the Secretary of State going to Africa and educating Ugandans or saying he is going to send American scientists to Uganda to explain how normal homosexuality is. Think about that. I mean, what must God think of our country? We had such a great country in the relatively recent past. Now America, which is supposed to be the light of the world, instead we’re the light going the opposite direction. I guess I wish we had more political leaders and religious leaders speaking out and saying, what in the world is John Kerry doing? I mean, what must God think of our country? If now, rather than sending people to Uganda to explain better agricultural techniques, sending missionaries to Africa educating people on Christianity, we send scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is. It is just unbelievable what has become of our country.
