Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 1/12/15

  • "What an honor!" former Rep. Michele Bachmann declared upon learning that she had been named WND's "2014 Lawmaker of the Year."
  • A federal judge has struck down South Dakota's ban on gay marriage.
  • Tom Tancredo declares that "we must stop all immigration of Muslims into the United States – yes, ALL Muslims – and then deport those already here who adhere to Shariah law."
  • J. Christian Adams has a simple solution for stopping terrorism: "People who are engaged in the business of Islamic terror should spend the rest of their lives behind bars, period."
  • Finally, there is no small irony in the fact that Glenn Beck is heaping praise upon "Selma" considering that had Beck been active during that time period, he probably would have spent every show screaming about how Martin Luther King Jr. was the most dangerous man in American history.

Right-Wing Pastor Claims Obama Made Deal With Terrorists To Attack Other Countries While He's President

Alex Jones hosted ultraconservative Harlem pastor James David Manning last week to discuss the terrorist attacks in Paris. Manning, earning his spot on the conspiracy-minded program, theorized that countries like France are suffering terrorist attacks instead of the U.S. because President Obama has made a deal to support groups such as ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Taliban in return for postponing attacks against America until he has completed his term as president.

After insisting that France “should expect these kinds of things to happen” for “embracing” Muslim immigrants, Manning explained his theory as to why the incident “happened in Paris and not in New York City.”

“Is there a reason why, since the fraud of 9/11, that Muslims have been coddled and embraced and thought of as a people that are not people to be feared and we’ve had no major event here in America?” he speculated. “Is it because Barack Hussein Obama, having a Muslim name and Muslim ties and praising Islam, that it has not taken place here in New York and we’re looking to see this happen later on in a very violent way? Something suspicious is happening here. We have joined forces with Al Qaeda in Syria and been supportive of a large number of other Islamist acts around the globe, so are we being protected because we are supportive of Islamic activity, jihadist activity, Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS. I’m just suspicious that we haven’t had any attack here that Paris, France, has had and others have had as well, that somehow we are being protected.”

“Aren’t we the big dog? Aren’t we the biggest world power? Why shouldn’t we be the target of these kinds of attacks? Unless there is some sort of deal out there that we don’t know about,” he said.

Manning said that other countries like France are facing attacks because Obama has made a deal with terrorists and is “opening up the doors for others to be attacked.”

He bravely added the caveat that he doesn’t necessarily believe everything he just said, insisting that he’s “simply asking as a question” about whether Obama has cut a deal with terrorists to protect America during his presidency. Jones, never afraid to fully embrace a conspiracy theory, told Manning that “at a certain level that is definitely going on.”

BarbWire: America Facing Satanic 'Homo-Terrorist Tyranny'

The firing of Atlanta’s fire chief for promoting his self-published anti-gay book to his employees has prompted Indiana pastor and BarbWire editor Jeff Allen to publish yet another anti-gay tirade, writing in a column today that gay-rights opponents may soon face jail for defying “the emerging homo-terrorist tyranny.”

“[I]n their anti-Christ crusade to destroy, devalue and desecrate the foundational structure of the family, the homosexual juggernaut is rapidly augmenting their Leftist arsenal through a menacing cache of lawless judicial rulings and the ostensibly named anti-discrimination ordinances,” Allen warns. “Satan’s compliant foot soldiers for the cause of counterfeit marriage will never stop sadistically trampling the principles of self-governance, the First Amendment and the will of the people under their feet.”

He laments that anyone in the U.S. who crosses “these homo-pathological thugs” will face destruction because the “Baal of homosexuality is a viscerally hateful and jealous god,” and now America will experience “cultural implosion” as it becomes “nothing more than just another cautionary footnote in the annals of history.”

“Marriage equality” is their hypocritical rallying cry. But the cat has been out of the bag for a long time, and everyone is fast beginning to realize that this is the most ridiculous thing they’ve ever heard. It’s nothing more than a godless demand for unrestricted debauchery. What they really want is not equality, but absolute cultural dominance. Their unmasked agenda involves the implementation of an oppressive double standard in which their “gay” Special Rights invariably squash our all-important Civil Rights. It’s the “gay” way or the highway.

The institution of marriage is the inimitable edifice and social load bearing wall upon which any free nation and stable civil government must certainly be established. However, in their anti-Christ crusade to destroy, devalue and desecrate the foundational structure of the family, the homosexual juggernaut is rapidly augmenting their Leftist arsenal through a menacing cache of lawless judicial rulings and the ostensibly named anti-discrimination ordinances. Through these and other Statist strong-arm tactics, their wrecking ball strategy has succeeded by compelling silence, intimidating dissent and purging the country of every voice of reason. The very rights they claim to be fighting for are ironically the exact same legal protections that they ruthlessly strive to strip away from the people of faith and decency – or anyone else who might dare to disagree with the endorsement of their lascivious lifestyle. The Baal of homosexuality is a viscerally hateful and jealous god.

The militant homosexual efforts have alarmingly functioned as the caustic social acid that eats away and erodes every constitutionally-protected freedom we have ever held near and dear to our hearts. The pro-deviancy advocates claim to merely carry the mantle of freedom, but in their wake, they leave the republic ravaged and in ruins. If they have their way, the landscape of liberty will be left desolate. Satan’s compliant foot soldiers for the cause of counterfeit marriage will never stop sadistically trampling the principles of self-governance, the First Amendment and the will of the people under their feet. The examples abound, and in the cases that follow, a clear distinction will be made between the legal clamps being put on Christians and a corresponding partiality for homosexuals in similar circumstances.



Marriage vendors (florists, photographers, bakers, printers, and reception hall owners), who have sincerely-held religious or conscience objections that prevent them from participating in or endorsing faux “gay marriage” events, are targeted for personal and professional destruction. They are mercilessly saddled with hefty fines, victimized by the coordinated attacks and death threats of “tolerant” homosexual lynch mobs, forced to attend sensitivity training, demonized by the fierce backlash from an LGBT-collaborative media and coerced to violate their beliefs. Capitulation is not optional. We’re told it’s the profane price of doing business in a growing number of “Constitution Free Zones” popping up all across our country. These Christian business owners face serious consequences for their refusal to submit to the gross mutation and mockery of marriage. Their livelihood is literally placed in peril and some individuals may also face incarceration if they continue their defiance of the emerging homo-terrorist tyranny.



If nothing is done to derail the greatest modern threat to democracy, the dagger of “progressivism” will ultimately extinguish the last tortured gasps of a great nation that currently finds itself in the throes of suicidal decline. Unwavering resistance of these homo-pathological thugs is imperative or America will undoubtedly become nothing more than just another cautionary footnote in the annals of history, like every other world power before us that recklessly rushed headlong into decadence.

The abandonment of God and all moral restraint invariably leads to cultural implosion.

There are no exceptions.

Beck Blames Obama For Closing Of Ohio Bridal Shop After Ebola Scare

Last year, after a handful of American healthcare workers contracted the Ebola virus, the nation was thrown into a panic, thanks, in part, to the incessant fear-mongering and crazy conspiracy theories promoted by the right-wing media.

Among the leading promoters of this panic was Glenn Beck, who spent day after day warning his audience that Ebola could spell the end for this nation and begging them not the listen to anything the government said.

Eventually, Beck completely lost it and called upon millions of Americans to march on Washington and demand a ban on travel from West African nations, screaming that failure to do so was "literally going to be the death of us all."

The crisis subsided shortly thereafter, but not without repercussions, as a bridal shop in Ohio is now going out of business as a result of the stigma attached to it after a Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola visited the store shortly before she became ill.

And Glenn Beck knows exactly who is to blame for this: President Obama.

"Here's how his policies affected real people," Beck said on his radio program on Friday. "This is the policy where they didn't quarantine people. This is how it affects real people ... This is one of the saddest, most tragic stories and one of the biggest beacons of how irresponsible it was of our government not to quarantine people":

'Swallowed By Satan' Author Angry With Tim Cook, Madonna

Remember Joseph Sciambra, the ex-Nazi-witch-Satanist-porn-star who authored the salacious memoir “Swallowed by Satan”? Well, Sciambra is back with a new interview on the podcast “Catholic Answers Focus,” in which he promotes his book and discusses his ex-gay activism in San Francisco’s Castro district.

Describing the gay community as a “dark,” “sick” and “bad world,” Sciambra tells podcast host Patrick Coffin that the rise of gay rights in the U.S. is the result of “misplaced charity” towards gay people as the “gay lifestyle” has “gotten darker and sicker” ... and Madonna.

“Through the ‘90s we had Madonna with all the bisexual stuff she was doing and then AIDS sort of seemed to, through the pharmaceutical companies, people were living longer with AIDS and it just seemed to slipped from the media limelight and there was just sort of a misplaced charity towards the gay community that had suffered so greatly during the AIDS crisis,” he said. “I think people very much wanted to love them and feel sorry for them for what they had gone through and I think it sort of got twisted into accepting everything gay men or women do, into saying, ‘Let’s accept them wanting to be married.’ I don’t know, it’s just bizarre what happened. Things at the core of the gay lifestyle haven’t changed, I think it’s gotten darker and sicker.”

Sciambra added that Apple CEO Tim Cook’s recent remarks on being gay are “awful” and may twist the minds of children: “My first thought is to the children that look up to him and admire him because he is a very successful and worldly person, he’s just down in Palo Alto not far from here, I don’t know what his background is and I don’t know what he experienced as a younger gay man, he’s painting a picture of the gay lifestyle that I think is false.”

Ben Carson Shilled For Notorious Company That Promoted Quack AIDS, Cancer Cures

As conservative activist Ben Carson mulls a presidential run, we’re not surprised to start seeing stories like this one from the National Review: “Ben Carson’s Troubling Connection.”

Jim Geraghty describes in detail the close ties between Carson and Mannatech, a medical supplement company that misleadingly markets its products to people with diseases such as Tay-Sachs, autism, non-Hodgkins lymphoma and ALS. At one point, the company even boasted of a “miracle cure” for AIDS and cancer.

If Carson runs, he won’t be the only 2016 Republican candidate with a record of boosting quack medical companies. Mike Huckabee once emailed his fans a sponsored message from a company promising remedies to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and another endorsing a biblical cancer cure from the Bible.

In March of last year, Dr. Ben Carson, the conservative star considered a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, appeared in a video for Mannatech, Inc., a Texas-based medical supplement maker. Smiling into the camera, he extolled the benefits of the company’s “glyconutrient”products:

The wonderful thing about a company like Mannatech is that they recognize that when God made us, He gave us the right fuel. And that fuel was the right kind of healthy food. You know we live in a society that is very sophisticated, and sometimes we’re not able to achieve the original diet. And we have to alter our diet to fit our lifestyle. Many of the natural things are not included in our diet. Basically what the company is doing is trying to find a way to restore natural diet as a medicine or as a mechanism for maintaining health.

Carson’s interactions with Mannatech, a nutritional-supplement company based in suburban Dallas, date back to 2004, when he was a speaker at the company’s annual conferences, MannaFest and MannaQuest. He also spoke at Mannatech conferences in 2011 and 2013, and spoke about “glyconutrients” in a PBS special as recently as last year.

Mannatech has a long, checkered past, stretching back to its founding more than a decade before Carson began touting the company’s supplements. It was started by businessman Samuel L. Caster in late 1993, mere “months,” the Wall Street Journal later noted, before Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which greatly loosened restrictions on how supplement makers could market their products. Within a few years of its inception, the company was marketing a wide variety of “glyconutrient” products using many of the same tactics previously described in lawsuits against Eagle Shield, Caster’s first company.



In 2007, three years after Carson’s first dealings with Mannatech, Texas attorney general Greg Abbott sued the company and Caster, charging them with orchestrating an unlawful marketing scheme that exaggerated their products’ health benefits. The original petition in that case paints an ugly picture of Mannatech’s marketing practices. It charges that the company offered testimonials from individuals claiming that they’d used Mannatech products to overcome serious diseases and ailments, including autism, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and life-threatening heart conditions.

Separately, the suit alleges that the company sold a CD entitled “Back from the Brink” that “provided example after example of how ‘glyconutrients’ (i.e., Mannatech’s products) cured, treated, or mitigated diseases including but not limited to toxic shock syndrome, heart failure, asthma, arthritis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, and lung inflammation.”

The complaint from Abbott’s office further suggested that the company had used careful wording in a scheme to avoid liability, instructing their sales force “not to refer to Mannatech’s products by name when making certain claims, but instead [to] refer to them generically as ‘glyconutrients,’” before “direct[ing] the customer to the ‘only company that makes these patented glyconutrients’ — Mannatech.”

A 20/20 investigative report from the same year revealed a similar pattern, finding that Mannatech sales associates were hawking the company’s signature drug, Ambrotose, which “costs at least $200 a month,” as “a miracle cure that could fix a broad range of diseases, from cancer to multiple sclerosis and AIDS.”



In 2009, the state of Texas reached an agreement resolving the lawsuit against Mannatech, Inc., and Caster; under the settlement, Mannatech paid $4 million in restitution to Texas customers while admitting no wrongdoing, and Caster agreed to a $1 million civil penalty and a five-year ban on serving as an officer, director, or employee of the company. The agreement further decreed that Mannatech employees were prohibited from saying “directly or indirectly” that their products can “cure, treat, mitigate or prevent any disease,” and banned the use of customers’ testimonials making those claims.

Yet Carson’s interactions with the company continued until at least March 2014, almost five years after the suit was settled, and a decade after the company’s marketing practices had first begun to come into question. That month, about a week before the online video was posted, Carson shot a PBS special in which he discusses nutrition, again praising “glyconutrients” in generic language similar to the video’s:

We aren’t necessarily getting the nutritional value that we need. So as I analyzed all those things, I began to realize that that was a significant portion of my problem. And I started to try to figure out, how do you get that supplementation? Well, I became particularly interested in glycoscience, glyconutrients. These things are in your apples, your bananas and beets and everything, you know, that’s growing, but by the time we get them, they frequently are gone. And I discovered you can actually concentrate those in powders and pills and things like that. And there are a number of different types of vitamins and supplements that are there. I advise people to actually look into this.

When asked for comment, Mannatech initially issued a statement declaring, “Dr. Carson is not a spokesperson or endorser of Mannatech.” But the company’s website touts Carson in connection with its products, and its homepage features a short video of Carson, promoting the special: “On March 11, Dr. Ben Carson, world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon, as well as humanitarian and best-selling author, conducted an informational presentation on PBS regarding brain health and referencing glyconutrients.” The site emphasizes that “Mannatech Incorporated is not a sponsor of ‘The Missing Link — The Science of Brain Health with Dr. Ben Carson’ featured on PBS.”

Religious Right Activist Wants National Guard Deployed To Stop Gay Couples' Marriages

Anti-LGBT activist Randy Thomasson has a message for governors across America: deploy the National Guard to stop same-sex marriages.

Thomasson, who leads the right-wing group Save California, detailed his proposal last week in a memo [PDF] to “pro-family leaders concerned about marriage”:

Each governor pledges themselves to “support and defend” the plain words of their state constitution, including, in morally conservative states, the definition of marriage as only for a man and a woman. Governors raise their right hand and publicly promise to “faithfully execute” (or carry out) these written laws, as commanded by their state constitutions.

Each governor also has an administration that serves his/her pleasure that is in charge of the state’s marriage forms (licenses and applications) that county clerks use.

And each governor is authorized to call out his/her state's militia or National Guard to enforce written laws and maintain public order against foreign and domestic enemies.



Given these facts, it is state governors that are unfortunately allowing homosexual “marriages.” And given their constitutional and statutory powers, it is not good enough for governors to merely protest by appealing to a higher court the unconstitutional opinions of bad judges.

...

In view of the current crisis on marriage, a constitutional governor can and should do the following:

• Announce he took an oath to obey the constitution, not to obey a judge’s unconstitutional opinion.

• Announce that no homosexual “marriage” licenses will be issues, and no county clerk is permitted to issue marriage licenses to anyone other than a qualified man and woman.

• Utilize the support of the state attorney general (if that constitutional officer is willing to stand alongside) or use the state’s National Guard to enforce the law at county clerk’s offices. (emphasis added)

Thomasson told WorldNetDaily yesterday that Republican governors aren’t doing enough to stop clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples following court decisions striking down marriage bans, and called for governors like Phil Bryant of Mississippi to use the National Guard to prevent same-sex marriages from taking place in their states.

“The casualties will be the children,” Thomasson said. “These Republican governors, by their own actions, are telling impressionable boys and girls ‘you can aspire to have a same-sex marriage for yourselves.’”

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality similarly told WND that “if someone stood up to the homosexual lobby and the courts, they would achieve hero status.”

Some state governors, such as Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, have indicated they will file further appeals to block the same-sex marriage rulings of federal judges. But Thomasson says this is a weak response.

“They’re doing an appeal in Mississippi, but their attorney general there has said that these same-sex marriages will begin happening if their appeal to higher courts is not successful,” Thomasson said. “The governor is supposed to be a strong Christian man, so what is he going to do? Is he really going to protect marriage? As governor, he’s the head of the Mississippi National Guard. He can refuse to alter marriage certificates. He can threaten to sue county clerks for violating the state Constitution on man-woman marriage.”

Progressives have not hesitated to play power politics when it comes to getting their agendas through, he said.



“Liberals will use their executive powers to do what they believe in,” Thomasson said. “Will pro-family governors use their powers to do what they believe in, not only what they believe in but what they have sworn to uphold and defend? Do we have to pull out the oath of office and read it to them? Do we have to pull out Black’s Law Dictionary and read them the definitions of the words they promised, such as ‘defend’ the Constitution and ‘faithfully execute’ the state laws?”

LaBarbera believes it would be politically popular for a governor to push the issue and defy the federal courts as having no authority over states’ rights to regulate marriage.

“Standing up to these courts would, I think, be good politics on the right. I would love to see it happen,” he told WND. “It’s a difference between being a politician and being a statesman. I think if someone stood up to the homosexual lobby and the courts, they would achieve hero status. We keep waiting for someone and it, unfortunately, never happens. I mean, 76 percent of the people voting can be wiped out by a single federal court decision?”

Thomasson said there is a big difference between California and conservative states like Mississippi, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina, all of which have either lost traditional marriage or are one judge’s decision away from losing it.

“It’s worse than criminal, because criminals usually hurt one person at a time, but the governors, if they betray the people by their cowardice in the face of a constitutional crisis, then they hurt many people by being AWOL,” he said. “The casualties will be the children. These Republican governors, by their own actions, are telling impressionable boys and girls ‘you can aspire to have a same-sex marriage for yourselves.’”

Donohue: If Someone Kills 'Piss Christ' Artist, It Will Be The Artist's Own Fault

The Catholic League's Bill Donohue created a bit of controversy last week when he responded to the deadly attack on the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo that killed a dozen people by declaring that the victims essentially brought the attack upon themselves by intentionally insulting Muslims and other religious believers.

Donohue's statement was met with outrage even by other conservatives, but Donohue has consistently defended his position, telling Newsmax's Steve Malzberg on Friday that if an outraged Christian were to kill artist Andres Serrano over his infamous "Piss Christ" image, it would partially be Serrano's own fault.

"I don't mind Mel Brooks. I don't mind edginess. I don't even mind irreverence," Donohue insisted. "I do have a problem with toilet speech."

Artists must stop producing "filth," he declared, saying that while he would be opposed to someone killing Serrano for his "Piss Christ" image, it would be Serrano's own fault were that to happen.

"Had he exercised restraint, he wouldn't be dead," Donohue asserted:

WorldNetDaily Columnist Thinks Legal Abortion Will Lead To Islamic Rule

The commentators over at WorldNetDaily are obsessed with warning about an imminent Islamic conquest of Europe and the U.S., and today the right-wing outlet published a column by Lord Christopher Monckton who is pretty sure that Russia is already a Muslim-majority nation.

“In Russia, Muslims already account for more than half the population,” Monckton writes, despite the fact that Muslims represent about one-tenth of the Russian population.

Terrified by “mass Muslim immigration” and fearing that Muslims are inherently criminal and violent, Monckton adds that legal abortion is killing off non-Muslims: “We are killing so many of our own citizens by abortion that the Muslims, who are morally superior to us in that they do not believe in killing unborn children, will soon outnumber us.”

Besides abortion and immigration, Monckton is afraid of President Obama because he’s a phony Christian “far more inclined toward Islam.”

Here, as in so many other fields, the left will simply lie because the lie is politically advantageous to it. President Hollande knows that there are at least 9 million Muslims in France. They are arriving at such a rapid rate that no one knows for sure just how many there are. But there are a lot. And very, very nearly all of them vote socialist. Totalitarians will always stand by other totalitarians.

But here’s the problem – for France and for many other European nations. We are killing so many of our own citizens by abortion that the Muslims, who are morally superior to us in that they do not believe in killing unborn children, will soon outnumber us.

How soon? Very soon. In Russia, Muslims already account for more than half the population. Even in Britain, which still theoretically retains some sort of immigration control, the left has deliberately turned a blind eye to mass Muslim immigration.

Mr. Obama is no better than President Hollande. He was once caught on camera bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia, and I have long suspected that the rather artificial stramash during his first election campaign about his worshiping at the tabernacle of an extremist Christian preacher was a calculated move by his spin-doctors to pretend that he is a Christian when he is ideologically far more inclined toward Islam.

Be that as it may, six in 10 of the French prison population are Muslims. France is not only importing and breeding Muslims: In doing so, she is importing and breeding crime. Why? Because – and this cannot be too often stressed – the Quran preaches violence and death against non-Muslims. Kill or maim an infidel and, under the Quranic disposition, you commit no crime.

Bryan Fischer's Incoherent Theory Of The First Amendment

For years now, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer has doggedly argued that the First Amendment only applies to Congress, meaning that no entity other than Congress could ever exceed its limitations or violate the rights it protects:

First, the amendment applies only to Congress. "Congress shall make no law..." No other entity is restrained by the First Amendment. Since the amendment applies only to Congress, it is legally, historically and constitutionally impossible for a state, a county commission, a city council, a school board, a school principal, a school teacher or a student to violate the First Amendment. This is for one simple reason: none of them is Congress. Violating the First Amendment is something only Congress can do.

Despite the fact that Fischer has time and again insisted that "the First Amendment applies only to Congress," he is now inexplicably fuming that the firing of Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran is somehow a violation of the First Amendment:

Cochran has been stripped of every right that is cherished and protected under the First Amendment. His freedom of religion, gone. His freedom of speech, gone. His freedom of the press, gone. His freedom of association, gone. When I say that homosexuality is the enemy of freedom, the First Amendment, and virtually the entire Constitution, this is what I’m talking about.

...

Cochran is considering legal action, as well he should. Either the First Amendment means what it says, in which case Cochran has an unassailable legal argument, or the Constitution doesn’t mean anything at all. It’s about time we found out the answer to that question.

As we have noted before, Fischer insists that "violating the First Amendment is something only Congress can do," and since local government is not Congress, he has no grounds to complain about any non-congressional entity supposedly violating the First Amendment.

According to Fischer's own well-established theory, his entire complaint that the city of Atlanda violated Cochran's First Amendment rights is utterly incoherent considering that the city of Atlanta is not Congress.
