Jim Garlow: Same-Sex Marriages 'Violate' California Law 'Every Single Day'

California Religious Right leader Jim Garlow helped spearhead the campaign to pass Proposition 8, and doesn’t seem to be giving up on his effort to ban same-sex marriage in the state even after the anti-gay amendment was overturned by federal courts.

While speaking to Bryan Fischer yesterday, Garlow insisted that every same-sex marriage — or as he calls it, “so-called gay marriage” — is still a violation of the law.

He said that Proposition 8 “still appears in the [state] Constitution, though it is being violated every single day” by gay couples getting legally married in the state.

Conservative Pundit: Kerry Declined Ohio Recount To Hide Rampant 'Voter Fraud In Favor Of Democrats'

Mat Staver hosted Valencia College professor Mark Logas on his “Faith and Freedom” radio program this week to hype the issue of voter fraud, the exceedingly rare crime that is being used by conservatives to push wave upon wave of voter suppression measures.

Logas was full of horror stories supposedly illustrating an epidemic of voter fraud, somehow all favoring Democrats. He even went back in history to argue that John Kerry declined to contest his narrow loss in Ohio in 2004 because a recount would have “exposed the voter fraud in favor of Democrats that goes on in Ohio alone.”

Specifically, he claimed that in 2004, in Franklin County, Ohio, which includes the city of Columbus, “there were more people who voted than lived there.”

Stunningly, this is not true! Although conservative activists raised a fuss when the number of voter registrations in the country exceeded the number of eligible voters — the result of outdated voter rolls — in the end, 533,000 people cast ballots in Franklin County in 2004 , which was decidedly less than the county’s estimated 815,000 voting-age population at the time.

And in the end, there actually was a recount of Ohio’s votes in 2004, requested by the Green and Libertarian parties, that did not uncover rampant Democratic voter fraud but in fact showed that Kerry had won a few hundred more votes than originally reported.

Staver: And you look at the presidential election in Florida in 2000 with George W. Bush and Al Gore. I mean, obviously that was a presidential election that was decided in one state, and that was very, very close. Huge possibility of having complete voter fraud the other way.

Logas: I don’t know if you remember in 2004, John Kerry barely lost Ohio and there were a lot of Democrats, liberal Democrats, that said, ‘You’ve got to challenge it, you’ve got to do a recount in Ohio!’ and he says, ‘No, no, no, I’m not going to do that.’ Why? Because in Franklin County, Ohio, in 2004, there were more people who voted than lived there. Not registered voters, than lived in the entire Franklin County.

Staver: So 100-plus percent voting.

Logas: Exactly. So for them to have challenged that exposed the voter fraud in favor of Democrats that goes on in Ohio alone.

Staver: Unbelievable.

Jim Garlow: Obama 'Honors Radical Islam'

Jim Garlow accused President Obama yesterday of having a “devious” agenda to “honor those who have been enemies of freedom, enemies of truth and enemies of justice.”

In an interview with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, the California-based pastor and Religious Right leader went on to claim that the president “honors Islam and radical Islam” and promotes hostility to Israel. He then argued that “there is no such thing as a Palestinian people etymologically, that does not exist.”

Breaking News From NARTH: Ex-Gays On The March!

The ex-gay group NARTH, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, has launched a new group called the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity to promote a “new emphasis on educational outreach.” The announcement even features a “Breaking News” video, via Warren Throckmorton:

We imagine such “Breaking News” probably would have been more relevant when, say, NARTH official George Rekers was caught traveling with a male escort.

Throckmorton writes: “In any case, there appears to be nothing new under the sun or at NARTH. The name is new but the empty promises appear to be the same.”

WND: Archie Is 'Promoting Homosexuality To Children' Since Liberals 'Do Not Wish To Run Out Of New Flesh'

WorldNetDaily columnist Marisa Martin was not pleased to hear the news that the comic book character Archie will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend. In a column today, Martin fumes that the writer and publisher of the Archie series are probably gay themselves and are “promoting homosexuality to children.”

“Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear,” she writes. “Fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.”

Martin also reminisces about the good ole days of when she was once “blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other ‘faggot’ for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.”

The column even includes a Benghazi joke and warnings about the occult.

Progressive “Archie” publisher and co-CEO John Goldwater informed the AP of this himself: “We hope by showing how something so violent can happen to Archie, that we can – in some way – learn from him.”

It’s understandable that Archie’s publishers would want him bashed, because they obviously reached way beyond the public gullibility point. How many straight guys have a “gay” best friend, anyway? Perhaps an acquaintance or even a few friends, but Kevin and Archie discussing baseball and the comparative hotness of his babes?

Goldwater is a true believer, though. Aggressively pushing a type of “gay” hero worship, he claims to have accidentally stumbled across the story idea.

It’s clearly all about the sex, or an “openly gay” character wouldn’t be intrusively inserted into the storyline in Boy Scout country of Riverdale. Merits of homosexuality are never discussed in Goldwater’s interviews or the appropriateness of forcing it on children either. Why not have Archie die for Mother Teresa or a bus load of children? No political capital.

Whether Goldwater or Parent are “gay” themselves or just in some sort of mindless thralldom, I wouldn’t claim to know. Perhaps that’s where they sniff the money and power is blowing, as so many others in corporate America and the arts have before them.

This could be merely nauseating when created for actual persons they have a crush on or something. But fabricating a homosexual hero merely to propagandize certain sexual proclivities via children’s comics … they haven’t made suitable adjectives for this yet.

Promoting homosexuality to children hasn’t been enough, though – Archie had to die for “great” causes. Why waste it? The other cause is gun control.

Writing for The Wire, Kevin O’Keefe explains the politics. The shooter “is after Kevin … a married senator-elect with big anti-gun plans after another shooter targeted gay victims in the nearby Southport Mall. But it’s unclear whether this shooter is a pro-gun nut or an anti-gay bigot – or both.”

Well, the liberal bigotry from Archie Comics is quite clear.

I’ll probably be accused of being a conspiracy theorist for this, but the timing of these social campaigns is extraordinarily coincidental. Goldwater and his cronies launch his big change-the-kids campaign about 2008, the nascent Obama years. Talking points are identical: change, diversity, gun control and promotion of “gay” and alternative lifestyles, specifically in the military – oh, and zombie invasions.

I’m sure it’s a total coincidence, though, and Goldwater and his co-workers have never even heard of Obama or the Democratic national platform, nor are they useful lackeys in any way or have they been promised an ambassador’s position in Libya.

But another memory comes to mind – my shock at first learning about homosexuality, thanks to junior high sex-ed. I was blissfully unaware of the mechanics of the act, although kids have probably been calling each other “faggot” for centuries. Still most of us had no idea exactly what that entailed – maybe something like weird hair – and we somehow survived.

Thanks to public education, the tireless campaigning of Planned Parenthood and self-interested work of LGBT groups who do not wish to run out of new flesh, your children and grandchildren will be much more sexually sophisticated and curious. And Archie Comics promises to aid in this quest per their press releases.

Characters and plots over the last decade are all headed toward any dark, slippery, violent and occult story line they can find or commission. Sadly, the art with the horror/social engineering/drama series is actually much better, its sole redemptive quality.

Staver: Same-Sex Marriage Not A Right Because Homosexuality Used To Be A Crime

On a recent episode of Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Mat Staver argued that marriage equality can’t be a fundamental right because it’s not “deeply rooted in our history that you have to protect it,” and in fact “homosexuality has always been considered a crime against nature” and “something that’s been criminalized in our culture.”

A fundamental right in constitutional law has to either be specifically articulated in an enumeration of the Constitution — so a fundamental right would be freedom of speech, freedom of religion, so it’s part of the First Amendment, it’s actually absolutely articulated — and if it’s not articulated, the court has said it has to be deeply rooted in our history such that if you were to not protect it, it would literally unravel the concept of ordered liberty that is so essential to who we are and it is so deeply rooted in our history that you have to protect it. Parental rights can be something that falls within a category such as that.

Now, here, obviously, the issue is, did same-sex marriage become a fundamental right? And the answer clearly is no. If they really were honest, it’s no. And to the contrary, same-sex marriage or homosexuality has always been considered a crime against nature. Instead of protection deeply rooted, it’s been something that’s been criminalized in our culture, not just in America but around the world.

Later in the program Staver discussed the recent appeals court decision striking down Virginia’s marriage equality ban with Liberty University Law School’s Rena Lindevaldsen. Lindevaldsen argued that because the court acknowledged that people in same-sex relationships sometimes raise children from opposite-sex relationships that it undermined the argument that being gay is a fundamental characteristic. “Now they’re saying, by the way, we can have relationships with whoever we want to and we still get this right to marriage,” she lamented.

WorldNetDaily: 'Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?'

The birther website WorldNetDaily is not exactly celebrating President Obama’s birthday this week, insisting that since his birth certificate is fake, he probably is lying about how old he is, too.

In his column yesterday, “Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?,” Jack Cashill writes that Obama is not telling the truth about not only his birth place, but also about the year he was born.

The WorldNetDaily reporter cites a 2007 speech Obama delivered in Selma, Alabama, about how his “existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today.” Obama was born in 1961, while the Selma to Montgomery march occurred in 1965. Of course, Obama’s remarks clearly referred to the progress of the Civil Rights Movement in general, but Cashill interprets his words literally to suggest that Obama inadvertently admitted that his birth certificate is phony.

In between the two convention speeches, the story of Obama’s birth was told more often than that of anyone’s since Jesus. No one, of course, told it as convincingly as Obama himself, especially in his game-saving Philadelphia speech, immodestly titled, “A More Perfect Union.”

“My very existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today,” Obama told the civil rights veterans gathered to mark the events of “Bloody Sunday” in 1965.

“Something happened back here in Selma, Alabama,” Obama continued. This something “sent a shout across the ocean,” which inspired the Barack Sr., “herding goats” back in Kenya, to “set his sights a little higher.”

This same something also “worried folks in the White House” to the point that the “the Kennedys decided we’re going to do an airlift.”

As the saga continued, Barack Sr. got a ticket on the airlift and met Obama’s mother, a descendant of slave owners. “There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge,” preached Obama.

“So they got together, and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don’t tell me I’m not coming home to Selma, Alabama.”

He didn’t, and he wasn’t. The correct answer is b) comically unanchored to reality.

Although born in Kansas, Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, was not exactly Dorothy. She spent her formative years in the state of Washington, hanging with her homies in her school’s “anarchist alley.”

If there ever were a romance between Dunham and Barack Sr., it likely started at closing time and ended when Senior sobered up. In any case, Selma had nothing to do with Obama’s birth.

According to his birth certificate, Obama was born in 1961, four years before anyone outside of Alabama ever heard of the town.

By the time of the march, Barack Sr. had long since abandoned Ann and baby Barry for Harvard where he hooked up with another white American woman.

So preposterous was Obama’s Selma math – by his calculations, he could have been born no sooner than 1966 – that it made the birth certificate seem at least relatively believable. Maybe that was the intention all along.

Erik Rush: If House Impeaches Obama, 'Senate Would Be Compelled To Remove Him'

WorldNetDaily pundit Erik Rush is calling on House Republicans to vote to impeach President Obama, writing that impeachment hearings will expose the president’s purported ties to al-Qaeda and ISIS and “create a situation in which even a Democrat-controlled Senate would be compelled to remove him.”

Rush, who previously supported an anti-Obama military coup and called for the president’s execution, writes today that Obama must be removed from office to ensure “that such an obscenity never again manifests in this nation.”

Think about it. Obama has to know that revelations made during impeachment proceedings (should they include such things as his identity fraud, releasing five of the most deadly terrorists alive in exchange for an Army deserter and likely traitor, catalyzing the Arab Spring, which has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands, orchestrating the fall of the Gadhafi government in Libya, as well as the funding and training of al-Qaida and ISIS, to name just a few) could create a situation in which even a Democrat-controlled Senate would be compelled to remove him.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s meltdown (as well as a marked breach of decorum) on the House floor last week also may have been quite telling. Given Pelosi’s usual behavior, her explosion and insulting tirade against Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., was more in keeping with someone under great stress than a mere loss of temper or momentary lapse in judgment. In case the reader is unaware, it was Pelosi who put her name to the documents certifying one Barack Hussein Obama as eligible for the Democratic Party nomination to run for president in 2008. Perhaps she perceives that if Obama is ever held to account for some of his more egregious acts, she could go down with him.

Just this week, 79 percent of respondents to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll claimed that they were dissatisfied with President Obama. The same poll showed Americans expressing a distinct disgust with the way the country is being run in general. I believe that we still have a long way to go before Americans truly understand how things came to this point, but it’s a beginning.

The American people don’t necessarily have to understand the motivations of the Obama cabal at this juncture. Perceiving the danger we are in and the nature of the threat they present could very well be enough to facilitate its neutralization. Once this occurs, we can set about ensuring that such an obscenity never again manifests in this nation.

Rick Joyner: Mules Prove Evolution Is 'Ridiculous' And 'Impossible'

On Sunday, Rick Joyner presented new proof that the theory of evolution is “not only ridiculous, it’s impossible.”

He claimed that there is no evidence of an entire species evolving: “You can mix a donkey and a horse and get a mule, but mules cannot reproduce. They can only reproduce after their own kind. We have no species change.”

“Why would a whole theory, everything taught in our schools, be based on something that is something that is so outrageously not only ridiculous, it’s impossible,” he said.
