Former GOP Senate Candidate Joe Miller Reinvents Himself As Birther Radio Host

Joe Miller, who as the Tea-Party backed Republican Senate candidate in Alaska in 2010 was defeated by a write-in campaign for incumbent Lisa Murkowski, lost his second Senate bid last year and has now apparently decided to reinvent himself as a right-wing radio host.

Last month, Miller launched a radio program that is broadcast online and on a couple of stations in Alaska, and in his first few weeks managed to secure interviews with conservative activists including Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt, Ret. Major General Paul Vallely and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Signaling the ease with which he’s transitioning from a politician to a radio host, Miller also scored interviews with a number of prominent birthers, including WorldNetDaily’s Jerome Corsi, attorney Herb Titus and, of course, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom he thanked for his “admirable” ongoing effort to prove that the president’s birth certificate is a forgery.

Miller told Arpaio that he knows something’s not right with Obama’s record, falsely claiming that the president has spent “millions” to “protect his college records” and that “there’s really no dispute” that “his Selective Service registration card that’s been published is a forgery.”

He added that the media is enforcing a “double standard” in questioning why Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker left college before graduating. “You talk about a double standard. I mean, here you’ve got a media attacking Scott Walker because they don’t know why he left school the last year, and yet they don’t lift a finger on President Obama,” he said.

Arpaio agreed that the president’s background is so questionable that “I don’t think he would be hired in our office when you get right down to it,” and lamented that it’s “a little strange” that he’s the only one investigating the long-moot birth certificate issue.

“It is,” Miller responded. “And any time that you stand up and you say, hey, look, I’m going to stand for what’s right, you end up being the target on it. And the stand that you’ve taken, not just on that issue but on illegal aliens and the other issues you’re facing, are admirable.”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 3/2/15

  • David Lane has organized several meetings for Bobby Jindal with local pastors in South Carolina this week and is working on organizing similar meetings for Mike Huckabee, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and Rand Paul.
  • Speaking of Jindal, he is Kevin Sorbo's choice for president.
  • Chuck Norris, meanwhile, is praying that Huckabee will run.
  • In a revelation that will surprise nobody, Phil Robertson is in complete agreement with Roy Moore.
  • WND has determined that newly elected Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is probably not the Antichrist.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck believes that Walt Disney is "the model of the future," which really ought to give pause to anyone who buys his claims that he is some sort of visionary who can see what is coming over the horizon.

Franklin Graham: Muslims Who 'Hate Israel And Hate Christians' Run The White House

Franklin Graham wants everyone to know that the White House has been “infiltrated by Muslims,” even though he can’t name a single one. The right-wing pastor seems upset that any Muslims are allowed to serve in the U.S. government at all, telling Pat Robertson’s son, Gordon, on the Christian Broadcasting Network last week that Muslims are now running the show and will begin to persecute Christians in America, with Obama’s help.

“We’re going to see persecution, I believe, in this country because our president is very sympathetic to Islam and the reason I say that, Gordon, is because his father was a Muslim, gave him a Muslim name, Barack Hussein Obama,” he said. “His mother married another Muslim man, they moved to Indonesia, he went to Indonesian schools. So, growing up his frame of reference and his influence as a young man was Islam. It wasn’t Christianity, it was Islam.

“There are Muslims that have access to him in the White House, our foreign policy has a lot of influence now from Muslims. We see the Prime Minister of Israel being snubbed by the president and by the White House and by the Democrats and it’s because of the influence of Islam. They hate Israel and they hate Christians, and so the storm is coming,” Graham said.

Later in the program, Graham also lamented that the Bush administration “allowed Muslims to come into various governmental agencies,” warning that “you now have radical Islamists that are advising various levels of government and it’s going to get worse.”

“We as Christians are going to lose,” he said.

On his Facebook page, he also accused these unnamed Muslim advisers of anti-Semitism:

Why is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being shunned by the liberal media, congress, and President Barack Obama? I believe it’s because this administration has been heavily influenced by Muslims speaking into and giving advice in various areas of the White House. They are anti-Israel and anti-Semitic—and they are influencing the president who as we all know was raised with a strong Muslim influence in his life. His father and his stepfather were Muslims and he attended Islamic schools. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been a friend to the US and deserves our respect. They’re treating our friend and ally as an enemy.

Sandy Rios: The Clintons' May Run A Charitable Foundation, But Hamas And Hezbollah Do Charity Work Too

Potential GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stopped by “Sandy Rios In The Morning” on Friday at CPAC, where she and Rios discussed reports that the Clinton family’s charitable foundation received donations from foreign countries. Fiorina, who has close ties to the foundation, dedicated part of the interview to attacking Hillary Clinton over the contributions.

Towards the end of the interview, Rios told Fiorina to “remember that Hamas and Hezbollah does [sic] charity work too, I’m not talking about yours, but you said that the Clinton Foundation does good work, that’s the way the left always operates, they do some good stuff.”

Fiorina said that she will at least credit the foundation for doing “some good work in Haiti,” but “now we see that there is a corruption in that foundation that is truly problematic.”

“Very dangerous, actually,” Rios added.

Brian Brown: Gay Marriage Victory Threatens Gun Rights, Future Of The Republic

Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage spoke to Sandy Rios last week at CPAC to promote his group’s “March for Marriage,” which will coincide with Supreme Court arguments on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans.

Brown told Rios that marriage equality advocates are using “ludicrous” and “absurd” arguments while seeking to give the judiciary so much power that it threatens “the nature of what it means to have a constitutional republic.”

“We need to stand up against it because if they can do this on marriage, folks who are concerned about gun rights, taxes, anything, if we give the courts the power to rewrite our constitution at will, then we have lost our republican form of government and that’s something everyone should be standing up and saying ‘no we’re not going to accept this,’” Brown said.

David Barton: The Bible Says There Will Never Be A Vaccine For HIV Because AIDS Is The Penalty For Homosexuality

In the second in a series of presentations that he recently made at Charis Bible College in Colorado, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton reiterated his belief that God will never allow a cure or vaccine for AIDS to be discovered because the disease is divine punishment for homosexuality.

Citing Romans 1, which declares that "men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved," Barton said that God will never allow a cure to be found for AIDS because that would eliminate the "penalty" that is due for engaging in such behavior.

"Anything the Bible says is right, there is scientific basis for it now," Barton said. "The federal government, in the last several years, has spent tens of billions of dollars looking for a vaccine for AIDS and I don't think they will ever find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS. And I say that based on a particular Bible verse ... Notice this, homosexuals receive in their bodies the penalty due them. The Bible says if you engage in homosexuality, your body will do things that will penalize you. So if you can have a vaccine for AIDS, then you're keeping your body from penalizing you. I don't think they'll ever find a vaccine for AIDS":

UPDATE: Warren Throckmorton took a look at the scientific evidence that Barton subsequently cited as "proof" of this point and discovered that Barton completely misrepresented the facts.

Rick Wiles' 2015 Predictions: Obama Will Force Communism On America

On Thursday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times radio host Rick Wiles invited pastor Robert Jeffress to discuss his new book, “Countdown to the Apocalypse: Why ISIS and Ebola Are Only the Beginning.” But minutes before Jeffress even appeared on the program, Wiles stole the show by outlining his predictions for the new year, which he said he revealed in an email last November.

According to Wiles, President Obama will soon declare himself a dictator who will lead the “progressive-socialist-communist faction of the Democratic Party” to perpetual power as he rallies “progressives to march over the Potomac River with him to their final glory as communist comrades.”

“Metaphorically, Barack Obama will shout, ‘The die is cast!’” Wiles said. “He will tell his hardcore communist supporters, ‘It is all or nothing. There is no turning back. We must conquer or die.’”

I sent out an urgent email on November 3, 2014, the day before the U.S. elections, I sent this out to our partners alerting them to what I expected would happen after Election Day in 2014. I said: ‘In the remaining weeks of 2014 and throughout 2015, Barack Obama will strike like a thunderbolt against all persons who dare to oppose his communist agenda. Persecution will come down on patriots, conservatives, and Protestant evangelical, Anglican, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians who speak against him. He will defy the U.S. Senate. He will consolidate power in Washington. He will rule by executive decrees. He will act like a “dictator in perpetuity.” He may even refuse to leave the White House in January 2017.’

I summarized what I believe would happen starting the day after the U.S. midterm elections November 4, 2014. I said: ‘The Democrats will be ousted from control of the Senate. Control of the Senate will swing to America’s conservative ruling class in the Republican Party. The Republicans will also sweep control of many state governorships and legislatures.’ Check that off, it happened.

I also said: ‘Metaphorically, Barack Obama will shout, “The die is cast!” He will tell his hardcore communist supporters, “It is all or nothing. There is no turning back. We must conquer or die.”’ Check that one off too. I also said Barack Obama will ‘brazenly defy the new conservative U.S. Senate.’ Check it off, he’s done it, he doesn’t even recognize them, he doesn’t need them.

I said: ‘With lightning speed, he will rule by executive decree. He will arrogantly mock his critics and dare them to stop his agenda.’ Check it off, he’s done that one too. I said, ‘He will rally the progressives to march over the Potomac River with him to their final glory as communist comrades. In desperation of being the darling of the progressive-socialist-communist faction of the Democratic Party, Mr. Obama will promise them everything they’ve ever dreamed of forcing onto America and he’ll do it through executive orders.’ Check it off, he’s doing it right now.

Beware Lesbian Abortion Cookies! The Worst Conservative Attacks On the Girl Scouts

While Girl Scouts across the country spent this past weekend selling and distributing Girl Scout cookies, many right-wing activists will not be joining the rest of us in enjoying Thin Mints and Samoas.

For the past several years, conservative groups have urged their members not to touch the cookies, warning that doing so will support communism, abortion and homosexual indoctrination. The Girl Scouts’ right-wing detractors commonly cite the discredited myth that the group is funding Planned Parenthood, and the even stranger that it is turning children into lesbian, socialist activists.

Here are the three wildest claims that right-wing activists make about the girls’ empowerment organization:

1) Girl Scouts Push ‘Lesbianism’ On Children!

The Girl Scouts’ strong stance against discrimination has put the organization in the far right’s crosshairs, with anti-LGBT activists claiming that the Girl Scouts’ acceptance of lesbian and bisexual members really means that they are somehow pushing “lesbianism” on children.

Back in 2013, Mission America’s Linda Harvey accused the Scouts of teaching “homosexual lifestyles” to girls, along with “an attitude of suspicion toward males in general.” One right-wing columnist, Jane Chastain of WorldNetDaily, alleged last year that the Scouts not only promote legal “prostitution,” but send children home from camp telling “stories of lesbianism.”

Perhaps no one captures this particular paranoia better than Religious Right radio host Kevin Swanson, who once literally begged his listeners to not purchase Girl Scout cookies.

“I don’t want to support lesbianism, I don’t want to support Planned Parenthood and I don’t want to support abortion, and if that be the case I’m not buying Girl Scout cookies,” Swanson said on his “Generations Radio” program in 2013. “Please, I beg of you, do not buy Girl Scout cookies. Please, I beg of you, stop buying Girl Scout cookies. And if you do, take a big black magic marker and cross out all of the references to Girl Scouts of America on all of the signs and all of the boxes because we do not want to promote that organization.”

Swanson added that Girl Scouts will eventually become voters who will put “a communist in the White House in the year 2020.”

2) Girl Scouts Promote Abortion And ‘Promoscuity’!

Conservatives were incensed when Girl Scouts of the USA tweeted out a Huffington Post article on notable women of 2013, asking Twitter followers who they thought was the ‘woman of the year.’ The article mentioned people like Malala Yousafzai and Beyoncé, but also included a lengthy video chat during which Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis and her famous filibuster against an anti-abortion bill were mentioned. While the Scouts didn’t endorse anyone in the post, conservatives seized on the tweet to resurrect the myth that Girl Scout cookie sales fund Planned Parenthood.

One Family Research Council official, Cathy Ruse, said in 2012 that the “radicals” leading the Girl Scouts seek to “promote abortion” and “push for same-sex marriage,” alleging that Scout leaders believe that “abortion and sex-ed and promiscuity for very young girls is a good thing.”

FRC president Tony Perkins warned on the same 2012 radio program that the people behind the Scouts’ “liberal indoctrination” efforts are “not having kids so they want to make sure they can get our kids.” He said that by encouraging “promiscuity,” future Scouts will need to go to Planned Parenthood clinics: “[I]t makes sense for Planned Parenthood to want to be teamed up with the Girl Scouts because that’s a client base for them if they can get this information into their hands to encourage promiscuity and behavior that would lead them into Planned Parenthood clinics.”

The even group went so far as to target the Girl Scouts in a prayer alert.

Fox News pundit Todd Starnes has also called on his fans to boycott the cookie drives, saying last year that cookie-buyers should seek out more “wholesome alternatives” since “Girl Scout money was helping to fund Planned Parenthood.” American Family Association president Tim Wildmon also called for a cookie boycott last year, saying that “buying Girl Scout cookies serves only to further facilitate a very liberal pro-abortion agenda.”

Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center was boycotting Girl Scout cookies as early as 2012, boasting that his entire office had sworn off the cookies since they were “destroying young women in America.”

3) Girl Scouts Commit ‘Child Abuse’ By Accepting Transgender Girls!

The far-right lit into the Girl Scouts in 2012 after one troop in Colorado decided to accept a 7-year-old transgender girl, citing its chapter’s policy that “if a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”

Perkins urged FRC members to boycott the Scouts since they “decided to admit boys who dress as girls” and Ruse said that the organization’s inclusive policy amounted to child abuse: “You’ve got a cross-dresser in the front office, you’ve got little boys admitted as little girls and those poor little girls in those troops have to pretend this is a girl? That’s child abuse in some people’s estimation.”

Far-Right Pundit: Hang Officials Who Skip Netanyahu's Speech To Congress

WorldNetDaily commentator and fringe radio host Andrea Shea King wants to punish elected officials who plan to skip Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial address to the U.S. Congress tomorrow…by putting them to death.

King said on her radio program last month that such officials shouldn’t just “pay with their jobs” but should also “pay with their lives.”

“I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol Building,” she said. “What they are doing is they are putting their own interests above that of America, and to me that is criminal.”

King specifically suggested hanging members of the Congressional Black Caucus, saying “their districts are all dumb clucks because these dumb clucks wouldn’t be electing these people if they knew better.”

“How do people like this get to represent us in Congress?” she asked. “Because there are stupid people out there in those congressional districts who are so ignorant it’s dangerous…. Stupid, stupid people. Our lives are on the line and all they can think of is skin color. All of us will turn black if we end up in a cage on fire.”
