On this week's "Hagee Hotline," John Hagee warned viewers to prepare themselves for a global economic collapse that will happen this fall, during which half of the world's wealth will be wiped out.
Coupling his own "blood moons" theory with Jonathan Cahn's "shemitah year" theory, Hagee warned that the world is now on the verge of total economic chaos.
"Do I think the four blood moons is a messenger of a coming storm?" he asked. "Absolutely. History repeats itself. And also, in this September, the shemitah year is ending ... 2015 is a shemitah year. September 28 is the fourth blood moon in this shemitah year. I believe, in the fall of this year, America and the world will face another economic crisis, perhaps as a result of war in the Middle East or an economic crash. But there are very sophisticated people on Wall Street saying we are facing a 50 percent correction in the stock market in the near future. Get ready. Americans should get prepared":
When the Family Research Council’s Craig James was guest-hosting the organization’s “Washington Watch” program last night, an interview with Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., inevitably turned toward the upcoming Supreme Court arguments on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans.
Remarkably, James, whose group lives and breathes opposition to LGBT rights, blamed liberals for pushing marriage equality in order to distract voters “away from reality.”
Yoho, a staunch opponent of marriage equality, declared that if politicians focused on issues like the national debt and immigration, “these smaller things” like marriage equality “will solve themselves.”
“Here we are in the 21st century redefining an institution that has been around for thousands of years,” Yoho said in response to a question from a listener about the impact of a potential Supreme Court decision, “And we’re spending time — and I’m not saying it’s important not to have those discussions —but we’ve got $18.2 trillion [in debt], we’ve got a broken foreign policy, we’ve got immigration that doesn’t work and so we need to start fixing the major things and I think a lot of these smaller things that are important to people they will solve themselves.”
James, apparently forgetting that his boss at the Family Research Council has warned that a ruling in favor of gay marriage will lead to a revolution, called the whole debate on marriage a Democratic-manufactured distraction “away from reality.”
“It’s a distraction of the 10th degree,” Yoho said. “We’re getting this stuff thrown at us and we really need to start focusing on major issues.”
E.W. Jackson, the unsuccessful Virginia GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, released a video last week which he said he had to make even though he was “supposed to be heading to an airport to get on a plane” because he was so worried about the gay rights movement’s “onslaught against Christianity.”
In the video, Jackson calls the debate surrounding Indiana’s since-amended “right-to-discriminate” law “an all-out war against Christianity.” “You black Christians who voted for people who support this, it’s time to wake up,” he says, telling African Americans that they voted for people who “hate the faith you represent.”
Jackson shared the video with his supporters in an email with the subject line “Totalitarianism or Tolerance? Freedom or Force?,” warning that “all Christians and fair-minded citizens must enlist in this war” against the “pro-same-sex ‘marriage’ hoards” before they usher in “totalitarianism.”
“It is as monstrous as the dictatorial regimes which force their citizens to bow or suffer,” he wrote. “We keep hearing that most of the American people now support same-sex 'marriage.' That's like saying all of the people in Cuba vote for Castro as President. No one dare do anything else.”
Unfortunately, our liberty is under attack like never before, and the solemn warnings of our Founding Fathers are as relevant as they were on the day they uttered them. One of the most recent attacks on Liberty occurred in Indiana when pro-same-sex 'marriage' hoards demanded that the Indiana Legislature strip business owners and others of their First Amendment rights to freedom of conscience and expression. They would force Christians to support or participate in same-sex ceremonies as a requirement of being allowed to do business. This is creeping totalitarianism, under the guise of tolerance and fairness. It is as monstrous as the dictatorial regimes which force their citizens to bow or suffer.
We keep hearing that most of the American people now support same-sex 'marriage.' That's like saying all of the people in Cuba vote for Castro as President. No one dare do anything else. When the homosexual radicals label you a bigot and hater for your Christian principles, there are many who choose to express the opinion that is safe. When government and businesses become a mob labeling a fairly mild law a symbol of hatred and discrimination, the message is clear that opponents better keep their mouths shut or lose their jobs and livelihood. This intimidation must stop, but sincere believers must not be moved.
It is a lie that opposition to same-sex 'marriage' is the same as Jim Crow segregation and bans on interracial marriage. The truth is that racial ideology was created to justify slavery and the continued subjugation of people based on skin color. On the other hand, Christians have believed in marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman for 2000 years. We did not create this narrow definition in response to anything, not even the anti-Christian gay rights movement. There is no comparison between homosexuality and race. One is behavior with profound moral implications and the other is a neutral physiological characteristic.
In the brief personal message below, I exhort fellow Christians and ministers to take a STAND. The time for languishing on the sidelines of the battle for Liberty is over. There can be no spectators. All Christians and fair-minded citizens must enlist in this war. Either we will fight for our liberty or we will lose it!
While allegations that the IRS subjected conservative groups to special scrutiny havecompletelyunraveled, the right-wing Truth in Action Ministries is still standing by them, releasing a video this week featuring ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann, radio host Bryan Fischer and former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land about the Obama administration’s supposed misuse of the tax agency for political purposes.
Bachmann alleges in the video that “the Internal Revenue Service took it upon themselves to persecute American citizens based upon their beliefs, whether they’re conservative, whether they were Christian.” Land, claiming that the phony scandal was much worse than Watergate, demands that IRS officials “go to jail” for their purported attempts to “diminish the freedoms of American citizens.”
Fischer, for his part, claims in the video that the IRS became the government’s “religious police.” “Leftists and bureaucrats in the federal government are now trying to use the IRS to repress and to punish religious speech they don’t like and political speech they don’t like,” he says. “And now they are looking at cracking down on churches, they’ve made some kind of secret deal with an atheist organization that they are going to monitor churches for any kind of political communication from the pulpit, and this is beginning to sound a lot more like communist China or communist Vietnam than it is the United States of America.”
The video concludes with Land calling the IRS the Obama administration’s “weapon … against those who would dare to criticize the government.”
“It’s like pointing a gun at your political opponents,” he says. “That is a violation of so many of the Bill of Rights it would take more time than we have to discuss them.”
“The funny thing about it is that it’s kind of a sexist position to think that somehow women announcers are less capable to handle themselves than men,” Paul said when Conway praised his testy response to Savannah Guthrie’s questions about his changing foreign policy positions. “I don’t think that, but everybody that was complaining about it, thinking it had something to do with gender, basically that’s insulting to the people doing the questioning.”
“Really the problem is that we have a lot of media that are just so far on the left that we just don’t have any neutral questions,” Paul continued. “If you go on there as a Democrat, they laugh and yuck it up and talk about how great things are going, but it’s a little bit different when Republicans are on the national news.”
James Dobson continues to prepare for the upcoming Supreme Court arguments on marriage equality by gathering anti-gay activists on his radio program to discuss the various calamities that will befall the United States if the court strikes down state-level bans on gay marriage.
On today's program, Dobson spoke with former National Organization for Marriage president Maggie Gallagher, who warned that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would represent the literal end of civilization and the beginning of an era in which Christians become a persecuted minority.
Declaring that the push for marriage equality is nothing more than "an attempt to impose a new morality on all of America," Gallagher warned Dobson's audience to get ready to live as pariahs in a society in which people of faith and marginalized and persecuted.
"Christianity in this country is going to enter a new phase where we are a hated minority group," she declared, "and I think we had better be psychologically and spiritually prepared for that and be prepared to rebuild from the ruins of the collapse of civilization that we're witnessing. At least one civilization is over with and what the next phase of American civilization will be is yet to be determined":
Paul told Mickelson that he had only heard of Jade Helm in passing and would look into it.
But Mickelson implied that the issue would not be going away for Paul and his fellow GOP candidates. Saying that he “gets emails about this every day,” Mickelson told the senator, “It’s making some people nervous, but it doesn’t take much to make people nervous nowadays.”
Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee was in New Hampshire to speak at the Republican Leadership Summit and while he was there, he sat down for an interview with conservative activist Kimberly Morin of the Manchester Political Buzz Examiner.
During the discussion, Huckabee shared his views on the Second Amendment by explaining that, where he comes from, the "gun nuts" are the people who support gun control and stated that if somebody broke into this house, the only reason he'd call 911 would be to tell them where to pick up the body of the intruder.
Explaining that he's owned guns since the time he was five, Huckabee said that he cringes when he hears people say that they support the Second Amendment because it protects hunting.
"The Second Amendment is not about hunting," he said, "this is about freedom. And I've heard people say 'Huckabee is one of those gun nuts.' Where I come from, a gun nut is a person who is irrationally afraid of a firearm because they don't understand the nature of having one and the importance to their liberty. I don't love guns, but I do love freedom. I love it a lot."
Huckabee went on to say that the only way to protect that freedom that he loves so much is "if we are able to outgun whoever wants to take that away from me," warning that if somebody breaks into his house, "there will be a gunfight involved in that and I plan to win."
"Yes, I will still call 911," he added, "but it's not going to be to call to helplessly wait as a victim while somebody ravages my family or my home. I call 911 to tell them where to come pick up the body of the son of a gun who broke into my house in the middle of the night":
