Tom DeLay: Left Wants To Force Gay Rights And Islamic Extremism 'Down Our Throats'

Former House GOP majority leader Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax program yesterday to discuss the incident in Garland, Texas, last week where two Islamic radicals were killed as they tried to attack an anti-Islam event hosted by Pamela Geller … which naturally led them to a discussion of gay marriage.

While they were on the topic of “religious freedom,” Malzberg asked DeLay about an exchange during the recent Supreme Court oral arguments on marriage equality in which Justice Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli about the Supreme Court ruling that allowed the government to strip Bob Jones University of its tax exemption because of its racially discriminatory practices, and whether the same thing could happen to a university that opposes same-sex marriage. “I mean, my God, is that the road we’re headed down in this country?” Malzberg asked.

DeLay replied that the left is trying to force gay marriage “down our throats” just like Islamic extremists are “forcing someone’s belief down other people.”

“It certainly is the road we’re headed down by the left, and they’re trying to force it down our throats,” he said, “and people like Pam Geller and many others need to be standing up and speaking out. I mean, right there in the Dallas area, where Garland is, the Muslims have come together and they’re trying to impose Sharia law on a voluntary basis, which is the next step into forcing someone’s belief down other people.”

“I mean, honor killings are happening in this country, manipulation destruction of female genitals is happening in this country,” he continued. “Everything that the radical Islamists are talking about, all these things are in their holy book, and we’ve got to have a discussion about this, and we have to make sure that these kinds of beliefs are not imposed on our Constitution or on our way of life.”

 

Rick Wiles: Kentucky Derby Proves Obama Is Demonic Precursor To The Antichrist

Self-proclaimed prophet Mena Lee Grebin joined Rick Wiles on his “Trunews” program yesterday to discuss various angelic visitations and divinely inspired visions she has experienced that have warned her of an imminent economic collapse and the coming of the Last Days.

Grebin told Wiles that President Obama “brought a curse on us” and doomed America with what she said are anti-Israel policies, noting that while she doesn’t think Obama is the Antichrist, he is “our Antichrist.”

Wiles agreed that Obama is bringing America down and is a forerunner of the Antichrist. As proof, he cited the results of the Kentucky Derby: “He has a spirit of Antichrist operating in him, he is America’s pharaoh. Interestingly, the horse American Pharaoh won the horse race Saturday, another little sign to America, there’s been many of them over the years since Obama’s been in.”

“This man — he has stoked the coals, the fires of war, it seems like the whole world is on fire,” Wiles added. “Even House Speaker John Boehner said it a month or two ago, he said ‘the world is on fire.’ Yes, Speaker Boehner, it is on fire and the man who is stoking the fires is in the White House. This is a man with a demonic spirit operating in him.”

Lindsey Graham: Mike Huckabee Wrong About Boycotting Military Under Obama

Earlier this week, Sen. Lindsey Graham discussed his potential presidential campaign on Boston Herald Radio, where the hosts asked him about Mike Huckabee’s assertion that people shouldn’t join the U.S. military until President Obama leaves office and is replaced by someone who shows less “hostility toward the Christian faith.”

“In all due respect to Mike, who I like a lot: Join your military,” Graham said. “You’re not serving Barack Obama, you’re serving your nation. I’m a military officer, I retire in a month or so, I’m not going to speak ill of the commander-in-chief in that regard. I will take issue with his policies, but military service is not about an individual, it’s about a cause greater than yourself. Join and hold your head up high.”

The hosts also asked Graham about Ben Carson’s remarks linking gay people with pedophiles and “bestiality supporters.” Graham responded that Carson was off-base, adding that if the Supreme Court strikes down marriage equality bans, Americans should “move forward as a society” since there is no way to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage.

He also subtly slighted Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Republican politician who said pregnancy from the result of rape was a “gift from God” during the 2012 election.

House GOP Schedules Vote On 20-Week Abortion Ban That Still Includes Hurdles For Rape Survivors

Back in January, House Republican leaders cancelled a vote on a 20-week abortion ban, the top legislative priority of anti-choice groups, shortly before it was scheduled to take place on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. A group of more moderate anti-choice Republicans, led by Rep. Renee Ellmers, had objected to language that exempted rape survivors from the ban only if they had reported the assault to law enforcement first, which Ellmers said “further victimized the victims of rape.”

Anti-choice groups were furious and have been holding protests outside the offices of House Republican leaders demanding a new vote on the bill. It seems that they have now gotten their wish.

A number of outlets are reporting that the House leadership has scheduled a vote next week on the 20-week ban after months of negotiations about the rape exception. According to news reports, while the requirement that rape survivors file a police report is no longer in the bill, they are now required to present evidence that they “have received either medical treatment or licensed counseling at least 48 hours prior to the late-term procedure.”

According to LifeNews, the bill also includes an “informed consent” requirement that notifies women “of the age of her baby and the requirements under the law” and includes language making it easier to sue abortion providers.

The Weekly Standard reports that National Right to Life Committee and the Susan B. Anthony List are both behind the new version of the bill:

In 2013, the House passed the bill, called the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which included exceptions in the cases of rape, incest, and when a physical health issue endangers the life of the mother. But an effort to pass identical legislation in the new Congress was scrapped in January on the eve of the annual March for Life because some GOP members, led publicly by Rep. Renee Ellmers of North Carolina, objected to the bill's reporting requirement for late-term abortions in the case of rape. The bill required the crime to be reported to law enforcement officials at any point prior to performing a late-term abortion.

According to House Republicans, that requirement has been removed from the bill. Instead, the legislation requires abortion doctors to ensure that victims have received either medical treatment or licensed counseling at least 48 hours prior to the late-term procedure. With that change, the bill has assuaged the concerns of those Republican members while still garnering strong support of national pro-life groups, including the National Right to Life Committee and the Susan B. Anthony List.

“I’m proud we’ve gotten to a point where we found a consensus between our members and the pro-life groups out there,” said Rep. Diane Black of Tennessee.

The fact that there was a rape exception in the bill at all was the result of last-minute negotiations on a previous version of the bill after its sponsor, Trent Franks, made a Todd Akin-like remark about pregnancy from rape being rare. As we explore in our recent report on the “personhood” movement, rape exceptions are extraordinarily divisive within the anti-choice community. The National Right to Life Committee’s decision to support the Franks bill even with the narrow rape exception caused a number of state anti-choice groups to form a rival organization that pushes for “no exceptions” anti-choice policies.

Blogger Jill Stanek reports that one person involved in the negotiations on the current version 20-week ban told her, “This is the most complicated bill I’ve ever worked on.”

Mat Staver: 'Pro-Homosexual Onslaught' Leading To Anti-Christian Persecution

Yesterday on his “Freedom’s Call” radio bulletin, Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver warned that church leaders will soon “face going to jail” if they don’t obey “unjust” and “unconscionable” same-sex marriage laws.

“We’re witnessing an aggressive movement targeting Christianity and our values, especially marriage,” Staver said. “We must realize that the war over marriage goes to the core of our religious freedom.”

Staver, seemingly suggesting — falsely — that churches will have to host same-sex couples’ weddings, urged “all Christians” to request Liberty Counsel’s help against an “onslaught of the radical pro-homosexual community or government agencies pursuing the same goal.”

In an email to Liberty Counsel members today, Staver issued a similar warning, including the discredited claim that “speech against homosexuality” will be criminalized and considered a “hate crime” if the Supreme Court strikes down same-sex marriage bans:

The coercion by the government and radical leftists to force Americans to accept the homosexual lifestyle and its sexual immorality has exploded. If the High Court wrongly affirms same-sex "marriage," the floodgates will be opened for lawsuits and legislation to label speech against homosexuality as a hate crime – and force participation in their events and ceremonies.

John Zmirak, Contributing Senior Editor of The Stream, and an endorser of our Marriage Solidarity Pledge, recently commented on one line of questioning by the Supreme Court Justices, which not only coincides with the warning flags we've been raising, but, in fact, should cause every pastor and church leader in America to take note.

His headline warns… "If the Supreme Court Imposes Same Sex Marriage, You Could Lose Your Church. Obama's Solicitor General admits that the feds will treat orthodox Christians like racists."

"If the court imposes same-sex "marriage," it will be exposing the churches attended by the majority of Americans to sustained legal attack. Does that sound like crazy alarmism? The Solicitor General of the United States agrees with me. Except that he is in favor of it.

"Justice Samuel Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli whether acceptance of same-sex marriage would subject orthodox Christian churches to the treatment once accorded Bob Jones University, which lost its tax-exempt status because its ban on interracial dating contradicted federal policy. Verrilli seemed a little taken aback, then answered yes, 'it's certainly going to be an issue.'

"In other words, if the Supreme Court votes against natural marriage, it will free up the feds to target organizations you might have heard of, such as the Catholic Church and the Southern Baptist Convention... Remember that the Obama administration has already tried to force these same churches to provide abortifacients to their employees. Attacking their tax-exempt status over biblical sexual ethics is peanuts next to that."

John then takes this argument one step further. "If the court hands the Obama administration the bully stick it is requesting, it will be creating a two-tier system of churches in America" — those that 'obey' the Court's interpretation of the Constitution and 'those that don't."

That leads to the logical creation of "registered" and "non-registered" churches, similar to restrictions used in communist countries for churches that toe the party line.

'We're Being Set Up': Glenn Beck Warns His Audience To Prepare For The Time When He Is Murdered In The Night

Glenn Beck closed out his radio program yesterday with a 10-minute monologue warning his audience that everything that is happening in Baltimore and Ferguson and elsewhere is all a giant set-up, designed to create instability so that the federal government can take control of police departments all over the nation ... but nobody will listen to him.

"We’re being set up, guys. We are absolutely being set up," Beck said. "And I don’t know — this is what I pray every night: 'I don’t know how to do this, Lord. I don’t know what you want. I don’t know — I don’t know what you want.' I can’t wake up anyone. Oh, if I had the voice of an angel. I can’t wake anybody else up. They’ve smeared me. I’ve helped them smear me. I don’t have any credibility. Nobody is listening. I can tell you what’s coming. I’ve told you every step of the way. I know what’s coming next."

Linking a recent statement from Al Sharprton to an intentional misrepresentation of President Obama's 2008 statement about creating a civilian security force, Beck warned that the federal government is arming local police departments with military equipment in preparation for taking them over while "grassroots" agitators are being brought in to create civil unrest in major cities for the purpose of providing an excuse for the government to do just that.

"This is the biggest show ever," he warned. "That’s all that’s happening right now. This is a show. We’re watching a script and a play play out in front of us. None of this stuff is real. Those riots in Baltimore. That wasn’t real ... At some point, there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back, and it will set the whole country on fire. And what happens? We will cry out for police help. The police will be overwhelmed. The DOJ will say, 'We’re going to take over policing, we’ll coordinate it from here.' And you’re done. It’s lights out, republic."

"That’s what’s coming," Beck said. "That’s what’s coming":

Amazingly, Beck wasn't done, as he then went on to implore his audience to prepare for the day when Beck and people like him are murdered in the night in order to silence their voices.

"If you look back at history, what happens to people who have voices and can cobble together people and be a leader?" he asked. "If you go back to what happened with the Armenian genocide, what is the first thing the Turks did? What is the first thing the Nazis did? You have a Night of Long Knives. The Armenian genocide. Any of the Armenians that could lead, any mayor, any writer, any person that was a hero in war, in one day, in each city, they would kill about 1,000 people. They'd just slaughter them. And they were all the leaders of the community. Anyone that people would rally around and follow. They were killed, day one. They just disappear, or they’re killed." 

"There are 10 million people that listen to this show. They cannot kill 10 million people in one night. You were born for a reason, and you’re listening to this show for a reason," Beck stated. "Prepare for a time when voices like mine or others are no longer heard and yours is the only voice."

Seemingly surprised by what he just spent the last 10 minutes saying, Beck finally fell silent before declaring "I can’t believe I just said all of that."

Right Wing Round-Up - 5/7/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/7/15

  • When he was governor of Florida, Jeb Bush's administration gave a $600,000 tax subsidy package to an internet-filtering company owned by the American Family Association.
  • Phyllis Schlafly says that the fight against immigration reform "is do-or-die for America."
  • Peter LaBarbera is alarmed by the news that an editor at Townhall.com is gay because while gay conservatives "may be conservative on a bunch of issues, and do wonderful work on those issues, but when it comes to homosexuality, they become gay rights activists."
  • The only people who want to know Glenn Beck's thoughts on "the media of the future" are people who don't actually ever listen to Glenn Beck because, if they did, they would know that he is the last person on earth who they should be asking.
  • Some helpful advice from Jennifer LeCalire: "If you live in a region where false Mary worship is rising, you'll notice that Jezebel's witchcrafts rise again in May. That's because of the traditional 'May Crowning' ritual that takes place to honor the Virgin Mary as 'the Queen of May.'"
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer keeps citing the recent terrorist attack in Texas as evidence that America needs to ban Muslim immigration despite the fact that both of the men who carried out the attack were native-born Americans.

Larry Pratt Hopes Obama Learns From Example Of Executed King

On his “Gun Owners News Hour” program in March, Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt invited Christian reconstructionist activist Joel McDurmon to discuss is work republishing a book from the 1920s on the role of pastors and “biblical law” in the founding of America.

This led to a discussion of how, in McDurmon’s words, President Obama along with “the entirety of Congress and the Supreme Court justices” are all “lawbreakers” because “they all operate outside the law to different degrees,” just like the English monarchy before the American Revolution.

McDurmon then brought up a colonial sermon citing the example of Charles I, who was executed for treason in 1649, as justification for regicide. This reminded Pratt of a speech by Patrick Henry against King George that made a similar point in justifying the killing of tyrants, which he said would provide a useful lesson to President Obama.

“Well, I like the way Patrick Henry finessed the question of regicide, of tyrannicide,” he said, “and he then pointed, I think it might have been to Charles I, and he was likening the current king and situation to that. And there were cries of, ‘Treason! Treason!’ And he had a pregnant pause, and then he said, ‘And may he learn from his example.’”

“But yes, might he learn!” he continued. “Might Barack Hussein Obama learn. Might they all learn. They live in a world of limits. They are not men without limits, and that’s something that I think astonishes some of our rulers. They really think, because as the president has said, ‘I have a pen and I have a phone,’ they think he can do any bloody thing he wants. Well, we’ll see about that.”

Later in the program, Pratt praised so-called “constitutional sheriffs” — who believe they have the power to arrest federal officials who are enforcing laws they believe violate the Constitution — and legislatures like that of Kansas that have passed laws “nullifying” federal laws they don’t like. These politicians, he said, are carrying on the spirit of the American revolution.


“You’ve got sheriffs who understand constitutional government and understand their role,” he said, “you’ve got the state of Kansas, which has passed legislation warning the feds that if they come in and try to do something unconstitutional to enforce some of their gun laws, the folks that try that will be charged with a crime. Obviously they will be detained and not permitted to continue that kind of illegal and unconstitutional action."

“That, I’m sure, is greeted with disdain in the proper parts of Washington, D.C., New York City and so forth, but frankly I think the folks in Kansas are serious as a heart attack, I think these constitutional sheriffs would without question make an arrest if they saw something unconstitutional that was oppressing one of the citizens of their county, and that’s the kind of spirit that we saw at the time of this period leading up to the war for American independence. It may not be dead yet in this country, the spirit that brought us from the New England pulpit, it may well be beginning to raise its head again, beginning to articulate itself again.”

Rep. Gohmert: Obama To Blame For Jade Helm 15 Conspiracy Theories

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Rep. Louie Gohmert blamed President Obama for the conspiracy theories surrounding the U.S. military’s upcoming Jade Helm 15 drill, which certain far-right activists believe is a prelude to a military takeover of conservative-leaning states like Texas.

Gohmert, who revealed that he recently met with military officials about the exercise, told the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins that the president incited anti-government sentiment because of the administration’s role in the Little Sisters of the Poor case, which involves a Catholic group that does not want to sign a waiver to become exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage mandate.

“From this administration’s standpoint, if you’re a saintly nun that has dedicated your life to helping the helpless, well, we’ve got to sue you and force you into our program, forget your religious beliefs, we’re coming after you,” Gohmert said. “This is the kind of thing this administration does, they help make people concerned about their government.”

Gohmert then brought up the Posse Comitatus Act, the post-Civil War law that barred federal troops from protecting the rights of African Americans in the South, which became a building block of a far-right, anti-government ideology. This led him to discuss the 1993 Waco incident using an incomprehensible impression of Bill Clinton.

“This is a cause of concern because the military and the United States president is not doing enough to explain why they consider part of the United States hostile,” Gohmert said, before adding that the president is “untruthful” and has given people “abundant reason to be distrustful.”

Gohmert, who has defended the Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theorists, added that he still isn’t satisfied with the military’s answers to his questions concerning the exercise.
