Rob Maness: Health Care Not A Right Because It Has To Be 'Taken From Another Human Being To Be Given To You'

In a debate two weeks ago, Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu and her two Republican challengers were asked if they think health care is a “fundamental right.” Landrieu and Rep. Bill Cassidy, the GOP frontrunner, said “yes.” Republican Rob Maness, who has been backed by several Tea Party groups in the “jungle primary,” said “no.”

In an interview with the Sarah Palin fans at Mama Grizzly Radio’s “Palin Update” yesterday, Maness expanded on his answer, arguing that access to health care can’t be a fundamental right because “a fundamental right is one given to us by God that doesn’t have to be taken from another human being to be given to you.”

“And what happens with health care is it’s a product, a service that has to be taken from one person or group of people and given to somebody to make that a fundamental right for them,” he added. “And that’s not the American way, that’s the way of totalitarianism and authoritarianism and socialism.”

Jesse Lee Peterson: Obama To Blame For Imminent Wave Of Suicide Bombings

Conservative talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson gave a meandering interview to WorldNetDaily today about the allegedly destructive legacy of President Obama’s administration.

He urged white people not to be “afraid of being called racist,” arguing that Obama intensified the black community’s “racist attitudes” against white people and warned that the increased racial hostility has encouraged more African Americans to convert to Islam.

Obama’s purported weakness towards terrorist groups, Peterson explains, will lead to a rash of suicide bombings throughout the U.S.: “We’re going to see suicide bombings in shopping centers and buses like in Israel, because it’s not being stopped and the president is not calling it evil or Islamic, so it’s not going to get better….So short of a miracle from God, we need to buckle down and get ready because we’re going to have a difficult time ahead of us, with suicide bombers in restaurants and buses and crowded places.”

The division among the races in America six years into the administration of Barack Obama is more pronounced than ever, Peterson said.

“I grew up on a plantation in Alabama and the races were closer then than they are today,” Peterson said.

“Black people have to admit and deal with that anger toward white Americans, or things are never going to get better.”

Peterson said he estimates about 80 percent of American blacks harbor deeply rooted racial anger toward whites.

“In some cases, it’s unconscious. They don’t realize they are racist, until a white person disagrees with them about a political issue or President Obama,” Peterson said. “Even black Christians. And many black-white friendships have been broken up – the friendship ends – because that’s when you see the racist attitudes come out of the black person. That’s when the anger comes out. And they won’t admit it’s them. They are angry, and they can’t see the truth.”

Peterson said he has had white people come to him in tears about the loss of a long-term relationship with a black friend.

“Some had gone to church together, hung out together for years, and when Obama was elected it all fell apart and ended,” he said. “It’s unfortunate. America has not dealt with the black racism and has not dealt with the anger, and the anger did not start with adults. It started as children in the home, when their parents or black leaders and many of the black preachers told them that it was white racism.”

“I would tell white people to overcome fear of being called racist and tell them the truth even at the risk of losing their friendship,” he said. “Otherwise, it will only get worse, because when you cower down to them it makes you look guilty. If you tell the truth, it will force them to look at themselves. But as long as white folks are afraid of being called racist or being sued, it makes things worse. Fear brings out the worst in people, and that’s what they’ve done over the years. They’ve catered and catered to black people and it’s only brought out the worst, the knock-out games, the black mob violence, all that is because they know that white people are afraid of them and it’s just bringing out the worst.”

“In all honesty, because they’re black I don’t think it’s going to get dealt with in an appropriate way. We’re already seeing it’s been called workplace violence. So they’re not pointing out the evil of Islam, and it’s just going to encourage others to do worse things.”

Peterson said he predicts that if Islamic terrorism is not dealt with, Americans will live to regret it.

“We’re going to see suicide bombings in shopping centers and buses like in Israel, because it’s not being stopped and the president is not calling it evil or Islamic, so it’s not going to get better,” Peterson said. “He sees it as just a few thugs in crime. That’s not the case. And because of that, I don’t see anything that could stop it. So short of a miracle from God, we need to buckle down and get ready because we’re going to have a difficult time ahead of us, with suicide bombers in restaurants and buses and crowded places.”

Right Wing Round-Up - 10/24/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/24/14

  • The Catholic League's Bill Donohue is calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment: "As any astute political science undergraduate knows, there is no constitutional right to gay marriage. But now that this issue has been thrust upon us by our constitutional law professor president, we need to affirm marriage between a man and a woman in the U.S. Constitution."
  • MassResistance has a simple fourteen point plan on how to "stop the 'gay marriage' steamroller."
  • Because Bryan Fischer is a paragon of dishonesty and misinformation, he can't understand why President Obama named Ron Klain as his "Ebola czar" since Klain supposedly thinks that the world has too many Africans and Asians.
  • Dave Welch tells Gordon Klingenschmitt that he and other pastors are prepared to go to jail rather than comply with subpoenas to hand over their sermons.
  • Finally, working for Glenn Beck has literally got to be the worst job in the world, as his staff are stuck being lectured by him every day as he flails about, desperately trying to figure out what he is doing.

Steve King Stands By Remark On Gays And Heaven, Even Though It Was 'Fabricated' By People Who Are Going To Hell

In an interview with an Iowa newspaper this week, Rep. Steve King suggested that gay people as well as those who are divorced and cohabiting will have unfavorable prospects in the afterlife, saying, “I’ll just say that what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today, and people that were condemned to hell 2,000 years ago, I don’t expect to meet them should I make it to Heaven.”

The comment was quickly picked up by outlets like Talking Points Memo and Salon, so when King visited the “Steve Malzberg Show” today, Malzberg gave him the opportunity to clarify his comments.

In response, King simultaneously stood by what he said and claimed that the story was “false” and had been “fabricated.”

“What I said was it’s between them and God. And I said what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today. That was what I said. And I stand on what I said, and they’ve manufactured this,” he insisted.

He added a dig at the people who had reported the story: “So maybe I won’t meet the people who distort the truth in the next life either, and I’m going to do my best to get to Heaven.”

Kenyans Not Happy With Pat Robertson After He Claims Their Towels Transmit AIDS

Apparently, Pat Robertson’s very unscientific claim that people shouldn’t use towels in Kenya because they might get AIDS that way has not gone over too well in Kenya.

The Associated Press reports that “Kenyans on social media are demanding that Robertson apologizes personally” for the comment.

Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network told AP that it had edited the remark out of the version of the show archived online, saying that the televangelist “misspoke.” Robertson, however, has not yet issued an on-air retraction of his comments.

Last year, when Robertson accused gay people of attacking strangers with AIDS-infected rings, CBN released a non-apology explanatory note and unsuccessfully attempted to take down our video of Robertson’s remarks.


Kenyans are expressing anger and shock on social media and radio stations over comments made by popular American evangelist Pat Robertson in a recent TV broadcast in which he warned that towels in Kenya could transmit AIDS.

Robertson's show is popular in Kenya, where the majority of residents are Christian.

HIV, which can lead to AIDS, is commonly spread through sex and drug users who share needles.

AIDS cannot be transmitted through towels, said Dr. Fredrick Sanford Kinama from the Center of HIV Prevention and Research at the University of Nairobi.

"You need a portal of entry and the medium to transmit the virus like blood or semen," Kinama said.

The Christian Broadcast Network, which airs "The 700 Club," said "Dr. Robertson misspoke about the possibility of getting AIDs through towels. CBN Quickly recognized the error and quickly removed the statement from the online archive. CBN recognizes the error and apologizes for any confusion."

Mumbi Seraki, who hosts a popular radio show in Nairobi, said Robertson should apologize personally on the show.

"Pat Robertson 'misspoke' about contracting AIDS from towels while in Kenya. But is he really sorry?" asked former legislator and human rights lawyer Gitobu Imanyara.

West Virginia AFA Affiliate: Marriage Equality Will Force Schools To 'Provide New Gay Recruits'

Earlier this month, West Virginia started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the state’s Republican attorney general conceded that an appeals court ruling striking down the state’s marriage ban was “final and binding.”

This did not sit well with the West Virginia Family Foundation — a state affiliate of the American Family Association — which sent out an email to supporters today with the headline, “November Election & Gay Agenda Is Upon Us!”

The group’s chairman, Ray Lambert, writes in the breathless email that the state’s refusal to keep fighting marriage equality in court means that Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin “cast his lot with Sodom and Obama” and that his “legacy is tarnished now by endorsing deviant and sinful sexual behavior.”

“Will homosexuality blossom in West Virginia?” Lambert asks. “The likelihood is yes. All WV schools, from K to grade 12 are now required by state law to teach and indoctrinate public school students to be tolerant of homosexuals and promiscuous.” Not only that, he warns, but schools will be forced to “provide new gay recruits.”

Lambert refers readers to Brian Camenker’s anti-gay group MassResistance for confirmation of his claims and to learn more about “the negative impact homosexuality has on gays and society in our daily lives.”

On the issue of Gay Marriage, West Virginians have been betrayed by our Governor, liberal federal judges and our own liberal West Virginia (WV) legislators!

I'm especially alarmed at how fast Governor Tomblin "threw in the towel" on our state's DOMA law which opened up our state to gay marriages. His announcement was fast and very unexpected. I think our Governor wrongly believes that homosexuality is worthy of special considerations. Governor Tomblin's legacy is tarnished now by endorsing deviant and sinful sexual behavior. He could have been known as the Governor who strengthened our state's marriage law but, sadly, he has cast his lot with Sodom and Obama. I believe it was done for political favor from his party.

Senate Speaker Jeffrey Kessler, from Wayne county, is eager to pass pro-homosexual laws. His pet law requires Christian and conservative business owners, and landlords, to employ or rent to men and women who practice sodomy. He overlooks existing civil rights law that guarantee us all freedom of religion. His view is that "gay rights" trumps Christians' rights.

Called the Employment and Housing Non-Discrimination Act (EHNDA), his legislation grants civil rights status to those who commit sodomy. This has far reaching ramifications, especially for Christians, whose Bible identifies sodomy sin. Abusing one's self through sodomy is a behavior, just like someone abusing tobacco, drugs, alcohol or even body piercings. Human behaviors can change and many step out of the gay lifestyle altogether. And because their "behavior" is mutable, unlike race, origin, age, etc. which is immutable. Society reserves civil rights protections for what we are, not the ever changing what we do.

Will homosexuality blossom in West Virginia? The likelihood is yes. All WV schools, from K to grade 12 are now required by state law to teach and indoctrinate public school students to be tolerant of homosexuals and promiscuous. Our schools will provide new gay recruits, just as it's being done today in Massachusetts' LGBT Conferences. More proof can be seen at the first annual Appalachian Queer Film Festival in Lewisburg. This four day event, going on now, brings Anne Sprinkle in to headline the event. Anne is characterized as the most vile and depraved lesbian in America by Peter LeBarbara, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. Will Lewisburg become the Key West or San Francisco of Appalachia. Isn't it strange that our WV newspapers aren't covering this "queer event"? Could it have something to do with the nearing election? I think so; just more media manipulation of the masses.

To see where WV is headed, visit Mass Resistance's web site. It's a conservative Massachusetts organization that's been fighting against sexual perversion for ten years since Governor Romney brought gay marriage to their state. You'll see WV's future if we don't stand firm against the gay agenda in our state. Educate yourself with these web sites plus one more, Family Research Institute. This organization brings scientific facts on homosexuality that counters the liberal media's sanitizing of homosexuality. You'll be amazed at the negative impact homosexuality has on gays and society in our daily lives.

Paranoia-Rama: Beware 'Mussolini' Obama, Gay 'Terrorists' … And People Voting

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

With the election less than two weeks away, conservative commentators are making some pretty terrifying predictions about how President Obama will serve out the remainder of his term. But last-minute Obama-bashing won’t distract them from their other, equally important, job: attacking gays and lesbians.

5. Ernst Goes There

Since securing the GOP nomination for her state’s open U.S. Senate seat, Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst has been trying to downplay her extremist record.

But the Republican candidate is having a hard time running away from her past remarks on such issues as the danger of the UN’s Agenda 21 and the ability of local law enforcement to arrest federal officials implementing Obamacare.

In the latest example of Ernst’s record catching up to her, a video surfaced this week of the candidate telling an audience at a 2012 NRA event that the reason she takes her gun “virtually everywhere” is because she is afraid of not only violent assailants but also the government: “I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

Ed Kilgore explains the thinking behind Ernst’s claim: “The idea here is to intimidate liberals, and ‘looters’ and secular socialists, and those people, that there are limits to what the good virtuous folk of the country will put up with in the way of interference with their property rights and their religious convictions and their sense of how the world ought to work. If push comes to shove, they’re heavily armed, and bullets outweigh ballots.”

4. Obama Will Kill Us All!

If you wonder where Joni Ernst gets her ideas about an imminent government crackdown that may require a violent response, look no further than Fox News, where just this week Sean Hannity hosted conservative pundit Mark Levin to discuss President Obama’s nefarious agenda.

Levin told Hannity that Obama is imposing “quintessential statism” on America that “is a disaster,” Media Matters reports.

“The country has gone to Hell under this president and under the Democrat [sic] Party,” Levin said, warning that after the election, “with Obama it’s going to get worse, you’re going to see his full Mussolini coming out.”

Wayne Allyn Root, another conservative commentator, managed to top Levin’s remarks in an interview on the “Point of View” radio show, where he claimed that Obama “was sent here to destroy this country,” possibly by the “communist forces” of the Soviet Union or the Bilderbergs, and is “taking down the entire America.” Root added: “We’ve got to remove him from office and fast before he kills all of us.”

3. Latest Voter Fraud Menace

We keep hearing stories about Republicans increasing their outreach to African American and Latino voters, but their enthusiastic efforts to prevent people from registering to vote and from casting ballots may not be helping their case.

Take a recent incident in Arizona, where a GOP official and conservative media outlets fumed that an activist with a progressive group dropped off a box of absentee ballots at a polling center, which is completely legal. Immediately, conservatives accused the activist — a Latino man — of committing voter fraud through “ballot stuffing” and wondered if he was a violent “illegal alien.”

Of course, not only is delivering ballots on behalf of voters legal in Arizona, but Wonkette notes that Republicans brought in Mitt Romney to host a ballot drop-off campaign event this very week.

Thursday night, Mitt Romney made an appearance in Mesa, Arizona, to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey. A graphic on a couple of conservative blogs, reproduced up top, urged attendees to “Bring your Early Ballots!” so GOP get-out-the-vote volunteers could collect them and get them to the county elections office.

Just remember, it’s only okay if Republicans do it, otherwise it’s voter fraud.

2. Beware Gay Plants, Or Something

Matt Barber’s website BarbWire today published an unintentionally hilarious piece by columnist Lee Duigon, who compares gays to super-plants from outer space that eat people.

“Gaydeology,” the dogma that “sexual liberation” is the highest moral value, presses forward aggressively on all fronts. Christians are to be punished by the state if they refuse to knuckle under. But the militant “gays” are only the street muscle for a “progressive” project to beat down church, family, and anything else that competes with the secular, God-denying state for the loyalty of every citizen. This vision for America, and for all the other countries of the Western world, has roots in the 19th century that sprouted into man-eating plants in the 20th, to become a worldwide plague in the 21st.

It is reminiscent of “The Day of the Triffids,” a classic horror movie about plants from outer space that infest the earth and strike blind anyone who gets too close.

Well, we have been blind, haven’t we? Blind to threats to our freedom, blind to the vast incompetence of government, and blind to its insatiable lust for power. Worst of all, we have been both blind and deaf to God our maker and our Father, whose blessings have been the lifeblood of America.

Maybe that should be the rallying cry of the anti-gay movement: Beware the triffids!

1. Gay ‘Terrorists’ Out To Get Us

Pat Robertson, who once warned viewers that they could become the victims of a gay ‘AIDS ring’ attack, lashed out at gay rights advocates on “The 700 Club” this week and accused them of trying to throw their opponents in jail.

Robertson didn’t hold back, warning that gay “terrorists” are launching their own Spanish Inquisition: “These people are terrorists, they’re radicals and they’re extremists. No Christian in his right mind would ever try to enforce somebody against their belief or else suffer jail. They did that during the Inquisition, it was horrible, it was a black mark on our history, but it isn’t being done now.”

Of course, Robertson’s argument relied on a twisted reading of a legal case in Houston, Texas, but that didn’t stop him from attacking the “monstrous” gay rights movement.

Beck: 'We Are A Nation On A Suicide Course'

After having spent nearly all of last week growing increasingly freaked-out about the Ebola threat, Glenn Beck had toned down the nonstop coverage this week until the news broke last night that a doctor in New York City had tested positive for the virus after returning from treating patients in Guinea.

That news, coupled with reports of a hatchet-wielding man having attacked police in New York City and the shooting in Canada earlier this week, prompted Beck to fume on his radio broadcast today that President Obama simply does not care about keeping America safe from disease or from what he is now calling "psychotic Islam."

"How does he survive being this wrong on so many things?" Beck asked, without a hint of irony, concluding that our society has gotten to the point that America has become "an abomination" that is on the verge of suicide, which is why our young people are trying to join ISIS.

"Because we in the West don't stand for anything anymore, our children are bored" and have nothing to believe in, Beck said, which is why it should come as no surprise that "our children are actually going over and trying to join ISIS because they know we have built something that is a complete and total fraud ... What we have built is an abomination."

"We are a nation on a suicide course," Beck said later in the segment, warning that when America goes down, it will take the entire world with it.

"They always have said when America sneezes, the rest of the world gets a cold," he said. "Well what happens when America gets Ebola?"

Alan Keyes: Impeach Obama For Ebola And 'Promoting Homosexuality'

Alan Keyes spoke yesterday with WorldNetDaily about his campaign to impeach President Obama, telling the right-wing outlet that his 2004 U.S. Senate opponent should be impeached because of Ebola, Benghazi, legal abortion and gay rights.

Keyes told WND that Obama is leveling a “malicious attack on the people of the United States” by exposing “the general population of our country to dreadful disease,” even going so far as to link the Ebola virus to the 2012 Benghazi attack.

After wondering if “we actually have people who are vested formally with the power of the executive branch of government who have been aiding and abetting open and declared enemies of the United States,” he called on Congress to investigate Obama administration officials for treason.

Keyes then warned that the White House is “forcing people to raise up their children in a way that promotes homosexuality, forcing people to use their money and time and labor in order to promote and approach to marriage that is contrary to the common good of all humanity” and “forcing people to accept as right the murder of posterity in the womb.”

Keyes also told WND’s Paul Bremmer that court rulings in favor of gay rights remind him of slavery and described Obama as a proponent of “communist socialism”:

“He is basically violating his sworn duty, which is to see that the laws are faithfully executed, and to uphold and preserve the Constitution of the United States.”

Second, Keyes said, Obama has abused the force of law by coercing people into violating their consciences. He specifically mentioned policies that force people to either accept or subsidize abortion, “gay marriage” and the homosexual lifestyle, saying such policies violate the First Amendment.

“When Obama gets out there and starts abusing, and others like him, they abuse the court system in order to force people to accept the view that something is right, when according to the laws of nature and of nature’s God it is self-evidently wrong. They are abusing conscience,” Keyes said.

He compared this abuse of conscience to slavery.

“When I read about the slavery of my ancestors, what touched me most and what seemed most horrific to me was not that somebody would force you to labor, not that somebody would force you with whips and stripes and things like this to do their bidding, but when their bidding absolutely contradicted your conscientious understanding of what God required. That they could force you to do evil. And that’s what’s happening in our country now,” Keyes said.

“He sees himself in the vanguard of the dialectic that is going to destroy and replace bourgeois, constitutional self-government based on rights and respect for the dignity of the human person,” Keyes said. “He’s going to replace that with his vision of the historical imperative of communist socialism, or whatever he’s about.”

“The facts suggest he is kind of brilliant,” Keyes said. “He’s a brilliant destroyer of everything American, of every right, of every liberty, of every constitutional premise of this country’s life. He’s brilliant at it, and we are now starting to look like stupid fools for letting him get away with it.”
