Bauer: Praising A 'Promiscuous Co-Ed' Like Sandra Fluke Is A Sign Of 'Civilization Decline'

Do you remember Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law Student who testified on behalf of the contraception mandate last year and then became the focus of the Religious Right's anti-choice/anti-sex ire?  Well, Gary Bauer certainly does, so much so that he actually spent part of his speech at the Values Voter Summit speech today attacking her yet again.

Bauer fumed over the fact that President Obama had called Fluke and congratulated her, ranting that when "a president praises a promiscuous co-ed," it is "the definition of civilization decline":

AFA Lunch at VVS: Call for 'Aggressive' and 'Offensive' Church in Culture War

The American Family Association hosted a luncheon on Friday at the Values Voter Summit. The featured speaker, Rep. Randy Forbes, was a no-show, though the audience was assured his non-appearance had nothing to do with ads being run in his district urging him to stay away.  Whatever was keeping Forbes so busy that he couldn’t break away didn’t prevent Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) from making it to the VVS hotel to give some opening remarks. Aderholt praised the activists, saying that the only way for America to be saved is for the country not to forget its founding values.  In Forbes’ absence we also heard from Jerry Boykin, the retired general who is now a VP at the Family Research Council, and Lea Carawan, the director of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation.

Boykin was his blunt self, asserting, “we are in a culture war today like America has never been” and complaining that the problem was with the church in general and with “Christians in name only” in particular.  “The majority of the Christians in America today are dead, asleep,” he groused. “They are not involved in what’s going on in our culture. They’re not engaged in this culture war. They are not putting their faith into action.”  He said it was the church that brought about the Revolutionary War and the abolition of slavery through the Civil War.  When he looks at America today, he said, “There is no other solution to our ills than for the church to wake up, get off your dead behinds and get in this culture war that we’re involved in.”

Carawan picked up on Boykin’s message, saying that members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and affiliated members in state legislatures are disappointed that they aren’t getting more backup from churches.  For example, she said, members of the Maine legislature have had to do the organizing to get pastors involved in a push for a “religious liberty” bill.  Carawan said the caucus was committed to an “offensive strategy” – one example she gave was Pennsylvania legislation requiring the display of “In God We Trust” in all the state’s public schools. 

Carawan said the prayer caucus favors a neutral public square and religious liberty for all Americans, but in the next breath said “we are equally committed to advocate, aggressively engage the public for advocating that Judeo-Christian values be reflected in our laws and policy, because somebody’s values are going to be reflected in laws and policies.” The founding fathers, she said, fought “so that we could have Judeo-Christian values reflected in our government, laws, and policy.” The founders understood, she said, “that it is only Christianity, Judeo-Christian principles, that provides the only valid moral basis that will secure freedom for all Americans.”

Carawan warned that “the strategy of the secular progressive agenda is simple and dangerous:  use the limitless financial resources at their disposal and the power of government to overwhelm and bury religious freedom in the ash heap of history. And that’s their plan. Not on our watch. Not on our watch. We’ve relied on defending our freedom in the courts. But this isn’t sufficient. We have to go on the offensive. We have to be aggressive. We have to stand up. We have to be intentional and strategic.”

Bachmann: Obama's Health Care Law Will Be Known As 'DeathCare'

Michele Bachmann tried to outdo Ben Carson at today’s Values Voter Summit in her attack on health care reform, calling Obamacare an “egregious system” that “will ultimately be known as DeathCare.” Such language comes as no surprise from the Minnesota congresswoman, who has repeatedly warned that Obamacare will establish death panels and “literally” kill people.

She added that Obamacare will turn the US into a “police state” that will make NSA surveillance seem small (ironically, Bachmann was one of the NSA’s biggest defenders).

Bachmann ended the speech by calling on people to fight against “this oppressive president” over Obamacare, calling it “the battle of our time.”

Watch:

Gohmert: McCain Supports Al Qaeda

Louie Gohmert is angry with John McCain for making the factual statement that Republican lawmakers caused the government shutdown. He’s so angry, in fact, that he told Values Voter Summit attendees today that McCain “supported Al Qaeda.”

We look forward to when Gohmert will accuse McCain of supporting terrorism to his face.

Rosenberg: God Will Bring His Judgment Upon America For Abortion Just As He Judged Nazi Germany

End Times fanatic Joel Rosenberg spoke at the Values Voter Summit today where he compared legal abortion in America to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany and warned the audience to consider just "what kind of judgment is in store" for a nation that allows legal abortion to continue.

"I don't know that [God] still has a plan and purpose for this country," Rosenberg fretted, saying that God might not save this nation even if it does experience a revival and the people finally turn their hearts back to him.

"Above all, we need to be pleading to our savior to have mercy on our country":

Breitbart: FRC Not Anti-Gay, Only Opposes Same-Sex Marriage

John Nolte at Breitbart is upset that CNN called the Family Research Council an “anti-gay” group, explaining: “The anti-Christian CNN chose to cover Friday's Values Voters Summit with a chyron that blasted the three-day gathering of social and religious conservatives activists as ‘anti-gay.’ Unless there is something else going on I'm unaware of, CNN is smearing this organization as anti-gay based only on their opposition to same-sex marriage -- a position President Obama held until last year.”

Oh really?

The FRC’s president Tony Perkins lauded Uganda’s law which made homosexuality a crime punishable by death or life imprisonment, warned that the government will promote gay relationships to further “population control and called gay rights advocates “pawns” of Satan.

The group’s senior fellow Peter Sprigg said that homosexuality should be outlawed and gay people exported and its prayer coordinator urged members to pray in favor of Malawi’s ban on homosexuality.

So yes, “there is something else going on” at the FRC.

For The Fourth Time, Glenn Beck Repeats False Information On Air That His Own Organization Has Debunked

For the fourth time now, we have caught Glenn Beck stating on air a false claim that has been debunked by his own The Blaze website.

Just yesterday, The Blaze ran a piece entitled "Rumor Check: Obamacare Website Might Be Glitchy, But It Didn’t Cost $634 Million" that explicitly debunked the right-wing claim that Obamacare website cost over a half-billion dollars to build.

So, of course, Beck when on the air last night and just repeated it anyway:

Kuhner: Polling That Shows GOP At Record Lows Proves GOP Is Winning

Conservative columnist Jeffrey Kuhner claims that polling showing the GOP’s popularity dropping to record lows is proof that Republicans are winning the government shutdown fight. Writing for the Washington Times today, Kuhner said that the disastrous polling numbers are all part of a big plan to “win the Obamacare war.”

How?

The Tea Party, of course!

He claims that even though most Americans oppose of the GOP’s attempt to link Obamacare funding to the shutdown, Kuhner says that most Americas actually love Republican anti-Obamacare zeal and the Tea Party.

However, the Tea Party has just a 21 percent approval rating, a poorer showing than even the GOP’s historically low 24 percent.

“The Tea Party represents the rebirth of Reagan conservatism, and the last time the GOP embraced Reaganism, they won consecutive landslide elections,” Kuhner writes. “The Republican moment is approaching.”

Republicans are on the verge of again becoming the majority party. The conventional wisdom is that the GOP is taking the brunt of the public blame for the partial government shutdown. In the short term, that is true. In the long term, however, the Republicans are on the verge of a major triumph. They will lose the shutdown battle, but win the Obamacare war.

By confronting President Obama on defunding or delaying his signature health care law, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives finally made a stand. Mr. Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are in no rush to end the government shutdown. The reason is obvious: They want to prolong the pain, thereby hoping to direct public anger against the House Republicans. The liberal elite media have peddled the narrative that the Tea Party is responsible for the shutdown. Democrats have resorted to calling Republicans every name in the book — terrorists, anarchists, suicide-bombers and right-wing extremists. The only thing they haven’t called Tea Party conservatives — yet — are Satanists.



For Democrats, Obamacare is the blunder of a generation. It is their law; they own it — lock, stock and barrel. There is a fierce battle against it because of deep popular opposition. Mr. Obama is paying the price for ramming the law down the throats of Congress and the American people. Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — every prior major modern entitlement program has had substantial bipartisan support. This was done to ensure a level of political consensus and social stability when implementing sweeping change.

Obamacare, however, was different. It was passed without a single GOP vote. Every Republican idea — purchasing insurance across state lines, the need for tort reform, stripping out the death panels, abolishing taxpayer funding of abortions and contraception, and eliminating the punishing tax on medical devices — was rejected. It was Obamacare that spawned the birth of the Tea Party.

Mr. Obama’s health care overhaul represents liberalism’s fatal overreach. Most Americans despise it, and the more they find out about Obamacare, the more they hate it. It is a significant reason why the president’s job approval has sunk to 37 percent — and will continue to plummet. The most enduring memory the electorate will have is of Republicans shutting down the government in order to thwart the oncoming disaster. The GOP is being rebranded right in front of our eyes. They are standing as the defenders of small government, fiscal sanity and individual freedom. The Tea Party represents the rebirth of Reagan conservatism, and the last time the GOP embraced Reaganism, they won consecutive landslide elections.

The Republican moment is approaching.

Allen West Calls Obama A 'Spoiled Brat,' Claims Lapse in Military Death Benefits Proves 'We Don’t Need The Government'

Count former congressmen Allen West among the Republicans aggrieved by the fact that mean bully President Obama won’t give them everything they want now that they’ve shut down the government.

In an interview with NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, West said that the president is a “pathological liar” and acting like a “spoiled brat child” because American voters gave the president “everything he wanted” by electing him. Americans voting for Obama in democratic elections, according to West, is just like a parent who gives in to “a screaming, ranting child in the cereal aisle”:

The United States participated in a Pavlovian experiment. WE have been giving Barack Obama everything that he has wanted. We gave him a state senator position in Chicago, we gave him a U.S. Senate position out of the state of Illinois. Unproven, untested, no resume, we gave him the presidency twice. So, if you continue to reward bad behavior you’re going to get more of that bad behavior. And, Steve, you can go to any grocery store, you can see any parent that acquiesced to a screaming, ranting child in the cereal aisle, you’re going to get that every time you go to that cereal aisle.

Malzberg then went on a rant about how the president was raised “not by his parents but by political believers that surrounded him” so he doesn’t “view America the way you and I do” and therefore doesn’t mind “the hurt that he’s putting on people unnecessarily” during the GOP’s shutdown. West agreed, saying that the president has an “animus” toward the United States.

Later in the interview, the two discussed the deal that the Defense Department struck with the private charity Fisher House to pay death benefits to military families during the shutdown, which the Pentagon would reimburse after the shutdown ended. Yesterday, the issue became moot when President Obama signed a bill restoring the benefits during the shutdown.

West and Malzberg, however, claimed that Obama would refuse to sign the bill and West declared that the plan to contract out the death benefits to a private charity “is beyond a disgrace, it’s an outrage, it’s reprehensible, it’s disgusting, it’s despicable.”

But then West turned the issue around to claim that the “reprehensible” temporary private contracting of military death benefits was actually a "triumph" because it proved that “we don’t need to have this big, onerous government if Americans can step up to the plate and fix that which government refuses to do.”

“I guarantee you that there are many other ways that the American people can take care of each other instead of having this society of dependency, which is what Barack Obama wants,” he added.

What does that teach you about government? What does that teach you about the American citizen? We don’t need to have this big, onerous government if Americans can step up to the plate and fix that which government refuses to do. So, really, for me, this is a triumph of the indomitable American spirit and our benevolence toward our fellow American man and women and especially the families of our fallen, that we don’t need the government to do it. We’ll figure it out either way. I guarantee you that there are many other ways that the American people can take care of each other instead of having this society of dependency, which is what Barack Obama wants.

Carson: Obamacare 'Is The Worst Thing That Has Happened In This Nation Since Slavery'

Speaking at the Values Voter Summit this morning, Ben Carson told the audience that Obamacare is "the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery."

In fact, Carson said, "it is slavery in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government." Claiming that the passage of health care reform was all about control, Carson said the entire push for the legislation originated with Vladimir Lenin, who knew that "socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state":
