Harvey: LGBT Rights Leads to the 'Oppression' of Parents

Linda Harvey of Mission America is furious about the United Nations Human Rights Office’s Free and Equal initiative, warning that it will contribute to the “oppression” of parents and curtail the freedom of speech. She described the campaign, which promotes legal protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation, as “deceptive” since universal rights do not “apply to harmful, high risk, sexual conduct that no one needs to do.”

“No one, if these people have their way, would have the actual universal human right to live out a religious belief that upholds man-woman sexuality within marriage as the standard and all other sexual practices as sinful,” Harvey continued, alleging that the campaign is focused on “denying free speech and other rights, including forcing the indoctrination of children into accepting homosexuality whether their parents like it or not.”

She maintained that the “incidences of oppression and discrimination” by LGBT rights advocates “against people of faith and against parents are piling up.”

Crouse: Obamacare Will 'Destroy Marriage'

In her latest column for the American Thinker, Concerned Women for America’s Janice Shaw Crouse repeats the claim of "newly conservative lesbian" blogger Cynthia Yockley that the Affordable Care Act will “destroy marriage for the middle class the same way that the Great Society welfare state destroyed the black family.”

Crouse bases this accusation on a bogus GOP talking point about the health care law’s supposed “marriage penalty” (if you care to read a full debunking, Igor Volsky has one here). This is all, Crouse alleges, a nefarious plot for “promoting single motherhood and discouraging marriage” in order to increase the number of single women, who tend to vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.

But it’s not only the health care law: Crouse repeats her frequent allegations that anti-poverty programs such as food stamps and the Earned Income Tax Credit are also deliberate attempts to “encourage individuals to reject marriage.”

Worse, we are discovering that ObamaCare really will "destroy marriage for the middle class the same way that the Great Society welfare state destroyed the black family -- with financial incentives for staying single." ObamaCare's marriage penalty could possibly cost couples over $10,000 a year. This intentional disparity means that U.S. government policy will encourage singleness and create increased disincentives for marriage. Single individuals will have an advantage with the earned income tax credit as well as welfare benefits, including food stamps. This comes as no surprise, of course, because "making the subsidies neutral towards marriage would lead to a married couple with only one bread-winner getting a more generous subsidy than a single parent at the same income-level."

With ObamaCare ramping up subsidies promoting single motherhood and discouraging marriage, an increase in poverty is inevitable -- along with dramatic increases in entitlements and dramatic tax hikes to pay for the increased entitlements. These increases are just one more of the numerous financial incentives in current government policy that increasingly encourage individuals to reject marriage -- the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), housing subsidies, food stamps, child support payments, and the welfare dependency programs that created and sustained the inner city matriarchal culture. These perks are costing American taxpayers trillions of dollars a year. Current welfare programs total close to $1 trillion a year (twice as much as national defense and nearly the size of the federal deficit); ObamaCare is projected to add another $2.5 trillion after all its provisions take effect. There's no end in sight to the increasing costs of these entitlements.

Politically, the "marriage penalty" is also a Democratic vote-getting initiative -- 70 percent of unmarried women voted for President Obama in the 2008 election. Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, a liberal firm that consults for clients such as Bill Clinton and John Kerry, said: "Unmarried women represent one of the most reliable Democratic cohorts in the electorate ... leading the charge for fundamental change in health care."

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/13/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/13/13

  • It was "Mock Obama Day" on Glenn Beck's radio program.  It was "uproarious."
  • "Karl Rove is a scaredy-cat."
  • John Hagee has apparently dropped his opposition to San Antonio's proposed anti-discrimination ordinance.
  • Randy Thomasson declares that "Jerry Brown and the Democrats have targeted every kid in public school with gender-bending brainwashing. Fortunately, parents can protect their children from the insanity of biological boys in girls' restrooms and girls' showers and biological girls in boys' restrooms and boys' showers by exiting the dysfunctional, immoral public schools for homeschooling and solid church schools."
  • Finally, we wonder what WND's Joseph Farah thinks about the plagiarism practiced by his good friend Chuck Missler.

Beck: It's Been Like Watching Progressives Sneak Into Your Child's Bedroom And Smother Them

Last month we noted that, after having been incredibly despondent about the future of this nation and humanity in general, Glenn Beck was suddenly rejuvenated after attending a Tea Party rally in Washington, DC, only to shortly thereafter fall back into a funk as he despaired that we were on the verge of the End Times.

So, logically, Beck is now back on the upswing these days and transforming himself into something of a self-help guru as he is now urging his audience to follow his lead and change their lives by choosing to accentuate the positive and put their faith in God.

Beck has recently banned all video games in his house and warned his family that if anyone is caught playing them, every electronic device in the house will be tossed into the family swimming pool. It has made a remarkable difference, says Beck, reinforcing his view that the changes he is making in his life will work not only for him, but for the listeners on his program as well.

As such, no longer will he focus only on the things that make him miserable, but rather on the things that bring him joy, because for too long he has felt like someone who had to sit back and watch as people have set about murdering every thing that he holds dear.

"I feel as though I have seen a killer," Beck explained, "that I can identify - the progressive movement - and we have seen them lie their way into our child's bedroom every single night and smother it with a pillow":

Huckabee and Nugent Joke about Hunting Democrats

Mike Huckabee invited NRA board member Ted Nugent onto his radio show today where they kicked off the interview by discussing Nugent’s “mystical, wonderful hunting dog” Gonzo.

“Maybe we ought to turn him loose on some Democrats and see if he can hunt them too,” Huckabee joked, to which Nugent replied: “There’s a lot of varmints out there and I think he would do good pointing [out] varmints and then we can vote them out of office.”

Donnelly: 'Everything We Predicted' About the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell 'Is Staring To Happen'

During an interview with Janet Parshall, anti-gay activist Elaine Donnelly pointed to a story about a drag performance at an Air Force base as proof that “everything we predicted is starting to happen” about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Donnelly said that the USO may soon have drag shows and thus creating “social turmoil in the Armed Forces.”

Of course, Donnelly also predicted in 2010 that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would lead to the reinstatement of the draft.

Bound4Life Hosting Prayer Rally to Sway Eighth Circuit Court to Uphold Anti-Choice Laws

Judges have blocked two laws restricting abortion rights in Arkansas and North Dakota, but the anti-choice group Bound4Life says that through dreams they have received a “divine prayer assignment” to hold a “strategic prayer gathering” in St. Louis, Missouri. The organization’s Red Riders Tour will lead a “silent siege” on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, which is based in St. Louis, to pray that the court will uphold the stringent new laws and “reverse the pollution in the land, which is the shedding of innocent blood.”

Birthers for Ted Cruz

The possible 2016 presidential candidacy of Canadian-born Texas Sen. Ted Cruz presents something of a conundrum for the birthers who have spent the past several years declaring that President Obama was born in Kenya and therefore ineligible for the presidency. While the Congressional Research Service [PDF] and many others hold that Cruz is eligible since his mother is a US citizen, birthers contend that Obama is ineligible to be president since they believe—without any real evidence—that he was born abroad to an American mother.

This weekend, arch-birther Donald Trump tried to avoid a question about Cruz’s eligibility, saying that he wasn’t sure where Cruz was born.

But Lord Christopher Monckton, columnist for the birther “news” site WorldNetDaily, seems to have no qualms about Cruz’s eligibility, writing that he wants to erect a statue of Cruz and can already envision the Texas senator as a successful two-term president:

Ted Cruz is one to watch. And let us not wait until after he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States before we engage some rising Michelangelo to carve a noble statue of him.

For the newly minted senator from Texas, who has already gotten off to a good start by speaking out against killing little children in their mother’s womb and has proposed to defund ObamachaosTM, now proposes to sweep away the hated, corrupt Infernal Revenue “Service” and replace today’s graduated income tax with a flat-rate tax that is the same for everyone.



Poverty endures solely because the left gain votes from it. Ted Cruz is one of the few politicians in either House of Congress who understand this. And he cares enough to do something about it. That is why he deserves his statue.

Of course, Monckton is a birther. In fact, he wrote an entire report [PDF] alleging that President Obama should and might be removed from office over the issue.

But at the same time, Monckton is perfectly happy with building a Michelangelo-inspired statue of Ted Cruz even before “he has served two spectacular terms as President of the United States.”

Klingenschmitt: Jesus Will 'Strike Down The Sodomites And Throw Them Into Hell'

On the most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt took issue with a threat by a gay couple to sue the Church of England for the right to get married there following the legalization of gay marriage in that country last month.

Klingenschmitt said that even if a court orders the church to allow the ceremony, God will never bless the marriage, saying that "God is going to withhold his blessing from sodomy because God has defined that as sin."

Klingenschmitt went on to add that one day "Jesus will come back and rule. In fact, he'll strike down the judge, he'll strike down the law in Britain, he'll strike down the sodomites and throw them into Hell":
