Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/21/15

  • Tony Perkins says that Josh Duggar's "deceitful behavior harms his family, his friends, his former coworkers, and the cause he has publicly espoused."
  • Bradlee Dean warns that the end of capital punishment leads to God's judgment.
  • Larry Tomczak declares that "because of rampant homosexuality, abortion, pornography, abandonment of Israel, widespread political corruption, obscene debt accumulation and celebration of immorality in America, judgment is at hand."
  • OANN's Graham Ledger says that some undocumented immigrants might already be "self-deporting" because they're afraid Donald Trump will be elected president
  • Finally, a warning from James Robison: "It is only the grace and mercy of God that prevents our nation from being destroyed. God is still our shelter, but if as a nation we continue on the present rebellious course, the hedge of protection will come down. We are already seeing it happen ... If we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

Tony Perkins: Obama Leading 'War On Christians,' Treats ISIS Better

Today, just hours after the White House announced that a U.S. drone strike had killed the so-called Islamic State’s second-in-command, part of an expanding military campaign against the terrorist group which has killed around 15,000 ISIS fighters, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins sent an email to his group’s members claiming that President Obama hasn’t laid a finger on ISIS because he is too busy waging a “war on Christians.”

According to Perkins, the Obama administration is actually treating Christians much more harshly than ISIS terrorists and is pushing a “diabolical” left-wing, pro-LGBT agenda that will “force Christians in the military underground.”

Perkins has previously claimed that Obama’s stance on LGBT rights inspires ISIS to murder Christians.

President Obama, America's Commander-In-Chief, is aggressively attacking what he believes is the greatest threat to the U.S. Armed Forces. No, not ISIS. Not Hamas. Not Russia, China, Iran, or North Korea. It's Christian servicemen and women who dare to practice their faith openly.

As President Obama has radically transformed the military, removing the prohibition against open homosexuality and now pushing to lift the ban on transgenderism in the military, there appears to be room for anyone and everything but Christians and Christianity.

….

Despite the growing threats against our nation, President Obama is undeterred in his efforts to make our nation's armed forces a far Left social experiment.

The Obama administration is focusing on providing gender reassignment drugs for a convicted traitor facing 35 years in Leavenworth; adding benefits for same-sex couples; and sponsoring gay pride events. A terrible waste of much-needed resources after the dangerous cuts of the military budget!

But what makes the President's agenda even more diabolical is that while he is expanding protections for LGBT troops, he is also attempting to force Christians in the military underground.



The war on Christians will destroy our military.

Already we see signs that America's military is corroding as morale plummets. According to a survey of more than 770,000 soldiers, more than half are unhappy and distrust leadership.

That's why it is essential that we fight and contend for religious freedom in the armed forces. In many ways the U.S. military is a cultural vanguard. What the military tolerates—or in the case of Obama's military, actually affirms—will be a precursor of what our culture as a whole will embrace.

Herb Titus: America Has A 'Responsibility Before God' To Only Allow Immigrants From 'Christian-Principled Cultures'

Herb Titus, the Christian Reconstructionist attorney and longtime Roy Moore ally, weighed in yesterday on the debate raging in the GOP about birthright citizenship, claiming in an interview with Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman that the 14th Amendment’s citizenship guarantee is part of an unbiblical attack on America’s God-ordained borders and on God Himself. He also called for the U.S. to restrict immigration from countries without a “Christian-principled culture.”

Kaufman — famous for resigning as then-congressman-elect Allen West’s chief of staff after she was criticized for such comments as calling for the hanging of undocumented immigrants — insisted that granting citizenship to the American-born children of undocumented immigrants “creates a hostile environment for real American citizens” because “these children who we have granted this precious status of being American citizens have become such a tremendous drain and at the same time replaced American workers.”

Titus told Kaufman that the problem with America’s citizenship laws isn’t just birthright citizenship but people coming in and setting up “cultural enclaves” and forgetting that America was founded on “the law of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

“If all we have is people who come to the United States to set up an entirely different culture, as we have so much nowadays in America where people are setting up their little cultural enclaves, we’re no longer the United States of America, we’ve become a kind of multicultural society that’s based on I don’t know what, since we don’t know what the principles are that undergird this nation anymore. We’ve forgotten the law of nature and nature’s God and the very foundational principles in the Declaration of Independence, and that’s what unites us,” he said.

He added that his view was rooted in the Bible: “The boundaries that are set for the United States of America are essential for determining whether America can be a nation. This is why when God led the people of Israel out through Moses into the Promised Land, they established themselves as a nation with boundaries. And if you don’t have boundaries, you don’t have a nation.”

Saying that immigration has created a “modern-day Tower of Babel,” Titus insisted that “it’s important for us to recognize that we have a responsibility before God the Creator to maintain the integrity of our borders. That’s very crucial in terms of integrity as an American Christian.”

“The Great Commission says that the Church is to go into all nations, not the nations coming into America. We’re supposed to take the good news to all nations,” he said.

“Look at some of the African nations, they’re adhering to some of the basic principles of the Creator, and God’s blessing them for doing so.”

After Kaufman complained about communities of immigrants from the Middle East that she said displayed an “anti-American” culture, Titus praised Gov. Bobby Jindal’s line that “immigration without assimilation is an invasion.”

“This is exactly what we’ve had,” he said, claiming that the U.S. used to only allow immigration from “countries that have a Christian-principled culture.”

“We had a carefully designed policy for many years to allow as immigrants into the United States only those people from countries that have a Christian-principled culture,” he said. “We may have had different denominations, it wasn’t a denominational thing, it was basically an understanding that if you didn’t begin with God and the Book of Genesis, ‘all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, to secure these rights governments are instituted among men.’ If we didn’t have people who understood that or who wanted that and were willing to receive that, they could not become citizens of the United States. We don’t ask that of anyone anymore.”
 

Beck: 'My Citizenship Has Become A Condemnation'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck announced an effort to raise as much money as he can in order to secure the freedom of Christian families who are threatened by ISIS by getting them out of the Middle East and transporting them to safety in places like Germany or Mexico.

Eventually, this morphed into Beck screaming about the United States supposedly being unwilling to accept Christian refugees who are fleeing ISIS that culminated in Beck vowing to meet these Christians in Mexico and personally walk them across the border into America.

Beck then tied all of this to reports that American aid worker Kayla Mueller had been repeatedly raped by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as well as the recent campaign against Planned Parenthood to declare that being an American citizen is now a complete disgrace that is threatening our eternal salvation and making us no better than the Nazis.

"My citizenship has become a condemnation," he fumed. "My citizenship is something that I'm now starting to look at as a liability for my first citizenship in a higher kingdom ...  If you can't see how evil we have become when I tell you the story of Planned Parenthood keeping baby parts in a freezer that they have jokingly called the nursery you will not see [Josef] Mengele when he arrives. You will don the black uniform and the black hat with the skull and crossbones on it and you will load people into the ovens."

Scott Walker: I Don't Know About Birthright Citizenship

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is trying to walk back his call to end birthright citizenship, which is assured by the 14th Amendment.

In an interview with CNBC, the GOP presidential candidate said today that he actually has no position on the amendment’s clear language: “I'm not taking a position on it one way or the other.”

Walker’s vague response to a straightforward question about the constitutional guarantee of birthright citizenship, which has emerged as a hot topic in the presidential campaign thanks to Donald Trump, is par for the course for the candidate.

Walker, who wrote a book about himself called “Unintimidated,” has told reporters that he doesn’t know if President Obama is a Christian or loves America, refused to say whether he believes in evolution or if people choose to be gay and has consistently equivocated or flip-flopped on topics ranging from reforming the immigration system to abortion rights.

The governor appears to be trying to appeal to a GOP establishment that has tried to alter the party’s stained image on immigration at the same time as he is trying to win over Trump’s supporters “by going on the attack and emphasizing his conservatism on key issues.”

Afraid of angering the party’s dominant right-wing flank, Walker is now bravely standing for nothing.

Rick Santorum Pledges To Sign Unconstitutional Birthright Citizenship Repeal

In an interview yesterday with Newsmax TV after a press conference at which he reiterated his support for ending birthright citizenship, Rick Santorum promised that as president he would “absolutely” sign a bill repealing the right, saying that it could probably be done without a constitutional amendment.

Ignoring the clear history of the 14th Amendment, Santorum told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg that it wasn’t clear whether the Constitution requires that children of foreign nationals born on U.S. soil be granted citizenship. Santorum said that he would leave it up to the Supreme Court to interpret the stipulation that birthright citizenship applies only to people “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States — long interpreted by the courts as excluding only a small class of people such as the children of ambassadors.

“That’s a decision that’s actually appropriately left up to the Supreme Court,” Santorum said. “These are the kinds of decisions that the Supreme Court should be making with respect to how do we determine somewhat vague language in the Constitution, not doing what they did and have been doing routinely is creating new constitutional rights.”

When Malzberg asked if the Supreme Court has ever “weighed in on whether the 14th Amendment covers these babies born of illegals,” Santorum replied that “to my knowledge, they have not.”

In fact, the Supreme Court did just that in 1898, ruling that a California-born child of Chinese immigrants, who were later barred from returning to the United States under the Chinese Exclusion Act, could not be denied citizenship under the 14th Amendment. That case, U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, cemented the right to birthright citizenship guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.


 

Louie Gohmert: Trust Iran's Leaders Over US Officials, Who Are Inciting God's Wrath

Rep. Louie Gohmert seized on a debunked AP report that alleged that Iranians will be allowed to inspect their own nuclear sites under the recent nuclear accord, telling Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on his radio program yesterday that he’d “tend to believe the Iranian leaders” over the Obama administration, which he said is provoking God’s judgment on America.

Citing the AP story, which was revised soon after publication, the Texas Republican claimed that President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry either “have no clue what’s going on” or “they’re flat-out lying about everything they say.”

“I tend to believe the Iranian leaders” over the administration officials, Gohmert added.

He then warned that Obama and Kerry are provoking God’s wrath on America: “This is a disaster and judgment will come down on the United States for doing this kind of damage, if it goes through, to the country of Israel.”

Beck: If Everyone Saw Broadway's 'Amazing Grace,' It Would Put An End To #BlackLivesMatter

For the last month, Glenn Beck has been heaping praise upon the Broadway play "Amazing Grace," which tells the story of the former trader who eventually penned the title hymn. After seeing a preview of the show in July, Beck couldn't praise it highly enough, calling it "profound and personal wake up call" and "a miracle":

What was happening was something far greater than a really special broadway show. We were being transformed, our hearts were softened and there was a spiritual healing that was happening. When, in the end, Amazing Grace was sung, I and others apparently, felt pulled out of our seats. It felt almost wrong to sit and I, for one, could not. Half of the audience stood up almost together, weeping. The other half leaped to their feet the minute the song was over. I have seen 100’s of Broadway’s shows over the years but I do not recall one where people were as fast to give a standing ovation as this show. It was the original cast of Les Miserable except the storyline was more powerful and the timing was only as God could time it. That is saying something I know. I never stay for the end of shows as we always leave on the last line. We stood for the 8 minute ovation. On the way out white and black were crying and some of us even hugged each other. “Oh, if everyone in the country could experience this show, many of our problems would fall away.” I thought and heard others say.

Audiences and critics, on the other hand, have been less enraptured and the play is struggling at the box office and so Beck brought the play's writer on to his radio show yesterday in an effort to promote the show and encourage his audience to buy tickets in order to keep it afloat, saying that if everyone in America would just see this play, it would immediately put an end to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

"There is something special about this," Beck said. "There's something happening with this show. I mean, if every American could see this show, you wouldn't be having people say, 'Black lives matter and you can't dare say white lives do ... All lives matter? You don't dare say all lives matter; it's black lives matter!' We would have an end of that conversation, literally."

Ted Cruz Defends 'Anchor Baby' Slur To Radio Host Who Wants To Enslave Undocumented Immigrants

Earlier this week, Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson proposed that states press undocumented immigrants into indentured servitude, asking a skeptical listener, “What’s wrong with slavery?” So, naturally, Sen. Ted Cruz dropped by Mickelson’s program this morning to discuss assaults on American Christians by the “atheist Taliban” and to discuss illegal immigration.

When Mickelson asked Cruz if he thought “the term ‘anchor baby’” is an offensive way to describe the American-born children of undocumented immigrants, who are automatically granted birthright citizenship under the Constitution, Cruz laughed.

“You know, it’s amazing what the media chooses to get offended by,” he said. “They don’t get offended when an illegal alien murders Kate Steinle in San Francisco. They don’t get offended when the Obama administration releases 104,000 violent criminal illegal aliens. And yet they get offended by people trying to solve real public policy problems.”

This led Mickelson to make a convoluted argument that his dictionary says that “anchor baby” is offensive but also defines marriage as between a man and a woman, so liberals must be wrong.

“You know, there is power, Jan, to simply speaking the truth, to not engaging in this politically correct nonsense and double-speak,” Cruz agreed. “Speak honestly and candidly about the challenges we face, whether it’s the assault on marriage — and we have the Supreme Court and the radical left trying to forcibly redefine marriage and to tear down what has been a fundamental building block of our society from time immemorial — or when it comes to, on immigration.”

Later in the interview, Cruz told Mickelson that “one of the real benefits of Donald Trump’s being in this race is it’s forced the mainstream media to talk about illegal immigration.” This, he thought, would ultimately turn anti-immigrant voters to him, because “for years, I’ve been leading the fight, actually been standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Steve King.”

“I stood with Jeff Sessions in the Senate and Steve King in the House and we led the fight and defeated amnesty in the United States Congress,” he boasted.

Cruz also told Mickelson that he would “absolutely” support King’s legislation to end birthright citizenship, which King claims can be done without amending the Constitution.

“You know, it is an open legal question whether changing birthright citizenship could be done through statute or could be done through a constitutional amendment,” Cruz claimed. “There are serious constitutional scholars on both sides of that argument. As a policy matter, I think it is basic common sense that we shouldn’t be incentivizing illegal immigration, that it doesn’t make sense to provide rewards for people to break the law and come here.”

“In the end, I think we should pursue whatever means will be effective in ending birthright citizenship,” he said.

While ending birthright citizenship would take a “long-term solution,” Cruz said, if he is elected he will immediately “put boots on the ground to secure the border” and “stop releasing violent criminal illegal aliens.”
