Tony Perkins Claims Obama Judicial Picks Are 'To the Left of Hugo Chavez'

Last month, Senate Democrats were forced to change the rules of the filibuster after Republicans vowed to block all three of President Obama’s nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals despite the fact that they had no problem with the nominees themselves.

But in the alternate universe of the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins,  when it comes to judicial nominations, “Senate Republicans have rarely displayed political courage stopping only a handful of nominees – nominees that ideologically would have been to the left of Hugo Chavez.”

Perkins said in his radio address today that the president’s nominations have in fact violated God’s “specific guidance on the selection of judges.”

The now majority leader pushed the nuclear option button effectively silencing the Senate minority and all but guaranteeing the president's nominees will be confirmed. Trust me; Senate Republicans have rarely displayed political courage, stopping only a handful of nominees -- nominees that ideologically would have been to the left of Hugo Chavez. The President is now free to pack the courts with ideologues that will both advance and protect his socialist policies. There is a reason that God gave specific guidance in the selection of judges. Few things will ruin a society quicker than unqualified, activist judges.

Looking through a list of Obama judicial nominees delayed or blocked by the GOP, it’s hard to find any who resemble the late Venezuelan president, but the FRC’s perception of these things tends to be skewed. After all, the group attacked both of the women in President Obama’s slate of nominees to the DC Circuit for being too “feminist,” one because she successfully fought for the Family and Medical Leave Act, and one because she supports having more than one woman on the Supreme Court.
 

Manning: Violent Revolution Against The Government Is Inevitable

Last week, conspiracy theorist and End Times radio host Rick Wiles informed his audience that he would be stepping away from the microphone and his daily hosting duties for the near future because God had told him to focus his energy on creating a television studio through which he could better promote his dire warnings that the world is doomed.

In the interim, the radio show would be anchored by like-minded guest hosts while continuing to feature exactly the sorts of guests we have come to expect from Wiles' program, such as crackpot preacher James David Manning, who told host Rev. Dr. David Berman yesterday that violent revolution against the US government is inevitable because public schools are indoctrinating kids with homosexuality and teaching them to rebel against the church, which is why so many people have begun stockpiling weapons:

When you reach a moral crisis and a political crisis such as what we have here now, the only way you're going to break the gridlock is that there's got to be some sort of a revolt. That's how our great nation came to be in the first place. I think Thomas Jefferson said that the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of both tyrants and patriots from time to time.

Right now, there is no glimmer of hope that the political class are going to be able to take care of what's going on in our nation, both morally and spiritually. In fact, they're advancing us toward the kingdom of Hell.

You mentioned something a few moments ago that's important; our schools - the federal school system that has no right to be in existence in the first place - is indoctrinating our children with this same-sex business and this sexual identity, they're going after our children, who are very innocent to this process, and they are teaching them to revolt against us. They're teaching them to revolt against the church, against the Constitution, against the nation and so, at some point in time, you're going to see a revolt.

One of the things that has demonstrated that, if you watch the amount of gun sales that have been taking place over the last couple of years, people have stocked up on ammunition. People are not stocking up because they just want to have weapons; they're stocking up because, at some point in time, it's going to happen, Doctor, it's going to happen. There's going to be a revolt.

Center For Marriage Policy Blames Shootings On No-Fault Divorce

The Center for Marriage Policy was founded in part to promote the theory that marriage equality is a plot cooked up by feminists so they can marry their female friends and extract child support from their male lovers. But this isn’t the only dubious social theory the group promotes. In a series of Facebook posts this year, the Center has blamed various acts of violence – including the Newtown school shooting, the murder of a Massachusetts high school teacher by a student, and Virginia state Sen. Creigh Deeds’ son’s attempted murder-suicide – on liberal divorce laws.

In a post on Sunday about the recently-released investigative report on Adam Lanza’s Newtown shooting spree, the Center wrote, “The Lanza case emphasizes the tremendous importance of marriage”:

In a post late last month, the Center blamed the murder of the teacher in Massachusetts on no-fault divorce laws, which allow married couples to obtain a divorce without either member of the couple being accused of wrongdoing. (Such laws are on the books in all 50 states and have been credited with decreases in domestic abuse.)

Just a few days earlier, the Center was blaming Sen. Deeds’ “unnecessary” divorce for his son’s violent outburst.

Back in May, the Center for Marriage Policy provided a similar analysis of a case in which an Oregon boy was accused of plotting to blow up his school. “Look no further: the divorce revolution drives domestic violence, child violence, and uncontrollable social spending,” the group wrote. “Are you fed up with this living disaster yet?”

The group argued that the divorce theory negates the need for gun violence prevention laws. “The majority of gun violence begins with marriage-absence,” the group wrote. “Marriage policy IS the key to cutting all types of violence, reducing demand social spending, and balancing budgets.”

The Center for Marriage Policy was founded in 2011 with the blessing of Phyllis Schlafly, and its board includes Schlafly’s niece Suzanne Venker.

Why It's Best Not To Cite The Pilgrims While Defending Hobby Lobby

Like fellow Religious Right activist Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, Nate Kellum is citing the Pilgrims as a reason to oppose the contraceptive coverage mandate for employers:

As we sat down and enjoyed our traditional Thanksgiving meals, many of us remembered the Pilgrims' quest for religious liberty. We considered how they came to this new country at great sacrifice, seeking the freedom to practice their religion.

But this noble quest is not just part of our history. The freedom to live according to faith is still being pursued today.

This quest is reflected in recent legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate, which forces Christian employers to supply insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs or face enormous and business-killing fines and penalties. Last Tuesday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear and resolve this vitally important issue.

While saying that for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby have First Amendment-protected religious beliefs is one thing, the legend of the Pilgrims going to the New World to search for religious freedom is a myth, especially considering that the Pilgrims helped establish a virtual theocracy that persecuted dissenters.

Historian Kenneth C. Davis writes in Smithsonian:

From the earliest arrival of Europeans on America’s shores, religion has often been a cudgel, used to discriminate, suppress and even kill the foreign, the “heretic” and the “unbeliever”—including the “heathen” natives already here. Moreover, while it is true that the vast majority of early-generation Americans were Christian, the pitched battles between various Protestant sects and, more explosively, between Protestants and Catholics, present an unavoidable contradiction to the widely held notion that America is a “Christian nation.”



The much-ballyhooed arrival of the Pilgrims and Puritans in New England in the early 1600s was indeed a response to persecution that these religious dissenters had experienced in England. But the Puritan fathers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony did not countenance tolerance of opposing religious views. Their “city upon a hill” was a theocracy that brooked no dissent, religious or political.

The most famous dissidents within the Puritan community, Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson, were banished following disagreements over theology and policy. From Puritan Boston’s earliest days, Catholics (“Papists”) were anathema and were banned from the colonies, along with other non-Puritans. Four Quakers were hanged in Boston between 1659 and 1661 for persistently returning to the city to stand up for their beliefs.

WND: You Can't Be Christian And Support Obama

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie is quite sure that President Obama is a Satanic, Antichrist figure who has the power to turn people gay, and is baffled that many Christians voted for him despite his “support for murdering unborn children” and “the contamination of our military with the practice of open homosexuality.”

Since Massie believes he gets to decide who is a Christian and who is not, he thinks that the only way someone could back “a mendacious liar, an advocate of murdering unborn children, an advocate of homosexual intercourse,” is due to race: “Black people and black ministers specifically, and pretend-to-be Christians in general, look at the color of Obama’s skin, his swagger, and they swoon, but God looks on the color of Obama’s heart and sees darkness.”

Now, with the weight of God’s Word as my witness, how can any true, born-again minister of God applaud Obama (or his wife, but I’m not talking about her right now)? On Oct. 23, I commented on my Facebook page, “Joshua Dubois, who is supposedly a Pentecostal minister, has authored a book titled, ‘The President’s Devotional.’ It’s supposedly a collection of devotions he sent to Obama daily. … I’d like to know how a true, born-again Pentecostal minister could remotely praise a mendacious liar, an advocate of murdering unborn children, an advocate of homosexual intercourse, and those [are] just for starts.” And don’t give me the old “no one’s perfect” and “we all need Jesus” lines in reference to Obama.

Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that Joshua Dubois is a minister in the tradition of Jeremiah Wright – what about the other ministers who claim to be born-again men of God and leaders in their community? Can support for murdering unborn children be defined as “goodness and righteousness” displayed as “Fruit of the Spirit”? Forget what Lucifer’s children would try to argue as reasonable; God’s perspective on homosexuality is clearly stated in Leviticus 20:13. God’s word reads: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. …” God called the act punishable by death with their blood upon them. And yet Obama advocates homosexual marriage and the contamination of our military with the practice of open homosexuality. What do we as Christians follow: the words of God or the words of man?



Obama has done nothing to promote racial harmony. To the contrary, we can document incident after incident of his helping to promote racial disharmony, starting within his own Justice Department.

If we are Christians, the indwelling Holy Spirit of God keeps our minds focused on God and His will. That is undeniable fact. Ergo, I contend there is only one reason for Obama omitting the words “under God” in his version of the Gettysburg Address – he is not a Christian.

If we are children of God, the mind of God is in us. On what level can that be said of Obama?

Black people and black ministers specifically, and pretend-to-be Christians in general, look at the color of Obama’s skin, his swagger, and they swoon, but God looks on the color of Obama’s heart and sees darkness.

Alan Keyes Floats Religious Right Third Party

Angry over the GOP’s “surrender in principle on issues of fundamental right like abortion and the rights of the natural family,” Alan Keyes thinks that it may be time for a third party that will represent the far-right.

Keyes, who ran against Barack Obama for US Senate in 2004, said that while all of his “prognostications and predictions I have continually and repeated made about the destructive, anti-American nature and intent of Barack Obama and all those who collaborate with him” have been “confirmed,” Republican politicians “have been either complicit, supine, or AWOL.”

In a Renew America column published yesterday, Keyes writes that just as the Whig Party dissolved over infighting on the issue of slavery, the Republican Party too will collapse due to its inability to stand “against the current tidal wave of godless socialism.”

“It may at times be true: ‘If it ain't broke, don’t fix it.’ But if it's really broke, you don't fix it either, you replace it with something that works,” Keyes adds. “Have Americans forgotten how to replace hijacked political parties?”

The year 2013 has witnessed a virtual cascade of events that have confirmed the prognostications and predictions I have continually and repeated made about the destructive, anti-American nature and intent of Barack Obama and all those who collaborate with him. But those same events have clearly demonstrated that the Obama collaboration includes almost the whole of the GOP's national leadership. From Obamacare to immigration, from enslaving Obamacare mandates to feckless foreign policy debacles, the GOP leaders have been either complicit, supine, or AWOL. They have also shamelessly declared political war on GOP U.S. senators and representatives who have honestly tried to represent the intense opposition to socialist tyranny simmering hot amongst the voters. Obama has usurped the executive power intended to preserve the nation, in order to destroy it. In like manner, the GOP leaders have usurped the political party that is supposed to represent Americans who are loyal to liberty and the Constitution. And they have used their leadership position to belittle, criticize, obstruct, and betray us.

Just as I predicted and warned against Obama's agenda, so in many speeches, articles, and interviews since 2008 I predicted, analyzed, and warned about this pattern of betrayal in the controlling leadership of the GOP. More and more people are joining the chorus of warning and opposition against Obama's tyrannical, communist agenda. They are finally admitting the fatal threat he poses to America's Constitution and liberty.

But too many people remain tragically blind to, or apathetic about, the truth that is the key to thwarting Obama's anti-American putsch. Tyrannical socialism would have no chance of overthrowing the citadel of America's liberty except for the consistent and increasingly bold cooperation of the forces that dominate what is supposed to be the Republican opposition.

In the 19th century, Abraham Lincoln and many others prominent in the rise of the original Republican Party started their political careers as members of the Whig Party. When the Whigs refused to confront the challenge of expanding slavery, or promote the policies needed to exploit the nation's opportunities for economic development, these political leaders left the Whig Party. They accepted the task of representing the voters the Whigs refused to heed.

In our day, where are the political leaders with enough foresight, integrity, and courage to accept the task of effectively representing the voters the GOP's elitist faction leaders are betraying? People like Mitch McConnell and John McCain clearly regard these voters with disdain. They portray authentically American conservative voters as cretins, who deserve to have no choice in politics that truly represents their faith in God and their allegiance to their country's God- acknowledging principles. When people point to GOP politicians like Ted Cruz, I answer them by adapting an old saw ("Your actions speak so loudly, etc."): "These days their party label resounds with so much repeated treachery that I cannot believe in their actions."

The GOP leadership has now firmly conveyed its surrender in principle on issues of fundamental right like abortion and the rights of the natural family. Given this surrender, I find it especially hard to understand how people of faith can go on deluding themselves with false hopes. Such an unprincipled leadership will never allow the GOP to be the ark of America's preservation against the current tidal wave of godless socialism and expedient Machiavellian politics.

It may at times be true: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But if it's really broke, you don't fix it either, you replace it with something that works. Have Americans forgotten how to replace hijacked political parties? If so, nothing will ever restore their self-government. For when elections offer decent folks no choice that actually represents them, the process of election amounts to nothing more than pitiful decoration for our chains.

Erik Rush: Remove Obama From Office 'By Any Means Necessary'

While Larry Klayman believes that “violent revolution” against President Obama “looms on the horizon,” Erik Rush is now openly calling for people to remove Obama from office “by any means necessary.” He says that people no longer need to obey the law because Obama administration “criminals have proven that they are not dissuaded by trifles like legality.”

“[A]ll I can say is that America has suffered casualties due to internal conflict before,” Rush writes today in a blog post titled, “It is Time… to Revolt Against a Tyrant,” in which he argues that “Obama and his cabal, and in all likelihood a substantial segment of Congress must go. We must also extricate the radicals and Islamists whom Obama has so kindly insinuated into high places in our government.”

Rush, a regular guest on Fox News, recently said that the president should face execution over his supposed plot to nuke America and argued that anyone who criticized Rush should be put in jail.

This administration, much of the Congress, and the creatures who support the same in blissful, belligerent ignorance must be neutralized if this nation is to survive in any semblance of its intended form. And it must be done by any means necessary, because such criminals have proven that they are not dissuaded by trifles like legality. The law, in our President’s estimation, is what he says it is. This has been proven time and again.

So Obama and his cabal, and in all likelihood a substantial segment of Congress must go. We must also extricate the radicals and Islamists whom Obama has so kindly insinuated into high places in our government. And the culture of our government must change. Indeed, it will take some time and sacrifice, but America has never faced a threat such as this. In truth, I don’t think any nation has.

As for those who remain dedicated to fighting for the legacy of our precious First Black President and all that the left holds dear for reasons of ideology or ignorance, all I can say is that America has suffered casualties due to internal conflict before. If you’re going to ally with liars, slanderers, oppressors, deviants, thieves, wife-beaters, murderers, and pedophile rapists, don’t plan to be remembered as having been on the right side of history.

WND: What If Mary Cheney Were A Pedophile?

WorldNetDaily has rallied to Liz Cheney’s defense, as she tries to disavow her openly gay sister Mary Cheney and past pro-gay rights remarks in her bid for US Senate in Wyoming.

Under the heading, “The Gaying Of America,” WND columnist Les Kinsolving criticizes Mary Cheney for daring to speak up to defend her family and waxes nostalgic for a time “when lesbians and others with alternate sexual orientations were comparatively mute.”

“How would lesbian Mary expect her sister to regard her orientation if she were polyandrous (female polygamy), a pedophile, incestuous or necrophiliac?” Kinsolving asks.

There was once a day in this nation when lesbians and others with alternate sexual orientations were comparatively mute.

There has developed a militancy that may well know no bounds, and that has torn apart the family of the former vice president of the United States.

Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is running for U.S. senator from Wyoming.

Liz has stated publicly that she does not believe in same-sex marriage.

For that, she has been publicly denounced by her militant lesbian sister, Mary Cheney, and Mary’s similarly militant lesbian mate, Heather Poe.



“Liz’s position is to treat my family as second-class citizens. That’s not a position I can be ‘lovingly tolerant’ toward.”

This really begs a question: How would lesbian Mary expect her sister to regard her orientation if she were polyandrous (female polygamy), a pedophile, incestuous or necrophiliac?
