Erik Rush: 'The Obama Administration or One of Its Surrogates is Responsible for [Keith] Ratliff's Death'

WorldNetDaily columnist and Fox News regular Erik Rush today is suggesting that President Obama may be behind the recent murder of gun enthusiast Keith Ratliff. Rush admits that while he has “no proof” besides his own “inclination,” the extremist writer claims Obama helped kill Ratliff as just “the first of many such executions that will take place in order to silence individuals whom the government deems a threat to their oligarchical collectivist agenda.”

On January 3, Keith Ratliff, a 32 year-old firearms enthusiast, was found fatally shot in the head in his Carnesville, Georgia home. Police are investigating the case as a homicide. Ratliff’s YouTube channel for fellow firearm enthusiasts was ranked as one of the top 10 channels on YouTube, with 3.4 million subscribers and more than 537 million views.

Although I have no proof, my inclination is to suspect that the Obama administration or one of its surrogates is responsible for Ratliff’s death, the first of many such executions that will take place in order to silence individuals whom the government deems a threat to their oligarchical collectivist agenda.



The only people upon which Americans can depend will be each other, private organizations, and a few intrepid state and county officials. Days ago, Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County Kentucky said that his office “will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.”

We can be encouraged by such gestures, but we must also bear in mind that the White House’s gun-grabbing plan is but one component in the larger agenda to transform America, as it were. Barack Obama is indeed playing a significant part in this tragic comedy, but he only wishes to see America brought down; whether it is by Islamofascists, communism, economic upheaval, or a misadventurous asteroid matters little to him, in my view.

If that of which informed conservative and libertarians are already aware is deeply disturbing, Obama’s designs, and measures which his administration have already set into motion behind the scenes will truly chill the blood. God Willing, these will also come to light before it is too late.

Whether there is still time to implement effective remedies to them remains to be seen.

DeMint’s Bold Plan for Heritage: How to Lie More Effectively

Former Sen. Jim DeMint, hero to the overlapping Tea Party and Religious Right wings of the Republican Party, was kindly granted space by the Washington Post to tell us what he plans to do in his new job at the Heritage Foundation.

DeMint, a former ad man, promises to launch a “conservative revival” by figuring out how to do a better job selling conservative policies to the American public. That’s not exactly a big shift for the folks at Heritage, which is and always has been a giant marketing operation for right-wing “ideas.”

The most revealing thing in DeMint’s column is his use of a thoroughly debunked lie that Republicans tried to use against President Obama in last year’s campaign.  Says DeMint of President Obama, “He disabled welfare reform last year, when he took away the work requirements that were at the heart of that law’s success.”

That false claim earned politicians like Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum “Pants on Fire” ratings from Politifact and similar ratings from other fact checkers.  It’s a gross distortion of an Obama administration decision to give states more flexibility to come up with new ways to meet the law's work requirements – something sought by Republican governors.  Even some Republicans, including one architect of welfare reform, called the charge false when the Romney campaign made it.

As we know from his climate change denialism, DeMint isn’t as concerned about truth as about creating his own reality -- the way Fox News and the right-wing echo chamber have tried to do.  “One lesson I learned in marketing is that, for consumers and voters, perception is reality.”

Maybe reporters should start referring to Heritage as a “perception tank.”

Washington Times Columnist Ignores Math and Reality Itself to Attack Obama

Washington Times writer Jeffrey Kuhner in his column today claims President Obama is responsible for the country’s deficit, and uses some interesting calculations to get to that result. For instance, Kuhner counts programs like SNAP (food stamps) and Social Security as Obama’s own socialist creations. Of course, SNAP and Social Security were established long before Obama took office.

Kuhner also said Obamacare is a budget-buster, clearly ignoring the study by the Congressional Budget Office which found that Obamacare reduces the deficit. He calls on Republicans to wage a “frontal assault” on Obama’s “anti-American, socialist” agenda which “poses a mortal threat to the republic’s long term survival.”

Liberals love to bash Mr. Bush. Their mantra is that Mr. Obama inherited a mess. Hence, the president is not responsible for his fiscal recklessness and unprecedented deficit spending. For liberal Democrats, it’s George W. Bush’s fault: The expensive bill for two unfunded wars, a large tax cut benefiting primarily the wealthy and a prescription drug benefit has come due. Mr. Obama is simply paying — and unfairly being blamed — for it.

This argument has one seminal flaw: It’s false. Mr. Obama’s policies have driven deficits and public spending to unprecedented peacetime heights. The government now spends nearly 25 percent of gross domestic product — considerably higher than the average post-World War II norm of 20 percent. Furthermore, the president has created Obamacare. It is the largest and most expensive entitlement program in 50 years. His trillion-dollar economic stimulus, billions of dollars in green-energy boondoggles, and an explosion in the use of food stamps, Social Security disability and unemployment benefits have led to massive government expansion. His goal is to erect a European-style social democracy. A bloated Franco-German welfare state is not only interventionist, but it is also costly — way too costly.



It’s time Mr. Boehner and congressional Republicans waged a frontal assault on Mr. Obama’s welfare liberalism. The country’s very prosperity is at stake. The House speaker should hold a press conference, surrounded by fellow Republicans, and challenge Mr. Obama to publicly state what he says in private: America does not have a spending problem. If the president genuinely believes this, then voters have a right to know.

Mr. Obama’s comments open a window into his anti-American, socialist worldview. Either he is a brazen liar who knows we are living beyond our means, or he is a delusional, self-absorbed academic leftist who is so obsessed with transformational change that he cannot see that we are sliding off a real fiscal cliff. Whatever the reason, his presidency poses a mortal threat to the republic’s long-term survival.

Maybe this simple chart from the Treasury Department will help Kuhner – it shows that the Bush administration’s policies turned a budget surplus into a massive budget deficit. The Obama administration’s policies, which were enacted to reverse the severe financial crisis that materialized under Bush, led to relatively modest increases in the deficit.

Independence Park to be Glenn Beck's 'Galt's Gulch'

The other day we mentioned that Glenn Beck intends to "go Galt" with a new effort called "The American Dream Labs" which he is building with the intention of revolutionizing everything from technology to education to agriculture to entertainment and even creating new forms of energy.

On his program last night, Beck revealed that his intention to "go Galt" is quite literal, unveiling grandiose plans to create an entirely self-sustaining community called Independence Park that will provide its own food and energy, produce television and film content, host research and development, serve as a marketplace for products and ideas, while also housing a theme park and serving as a residential community.

At the center - in the middle of the lake that is itself larger than all of Disney Land - Beck (with the help of David Barton) will create a massive "national archive"/learning center where people can send their children to be "deprogrammed" and elected officials can come to learn "the truth."

All for a mere $2 billion.

There is no way to even try to summarize the delusional insanity of Beck's twenty minute description of his vision, so we are just posting the entire video:   

Right Wing Round-Up - 1/10/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/10/13

  • The Family Research Council says Pastor Louie Guglio's decision to withdraw from President Obama's inauguration is "another example of intolerance from the Obama administration toward those who hold to biblical views on sexuality" while Al Mohler calls it "moral McCarthyism."
  • TVC's Andrea Lafferty says Chuck Hagel was right to oppose James Hormel's nomination back in 1998 because she "went to the Hormel library in San Francisco and spent three days there bringing forth all of this filth and disgusting stuff that was in this man's library."
  • The level of Glenn Beck's delusion is pretty remarkable as he is now vowing to completely overhaul the world of advertising ... because apparently all the companies that have spent billions of dollars on it over the last fifty years simply have no idea what they are doing.
  • FRC prays that God will "intervene now to prevent the destruction of marriage in our nation and with it, our nation's future" by swaying the Supreme Court justices.
  • Why is Rep. Michele Bachmann refusing to pay those who worked on her presidential campaign?

Buster Wilson: 'There is Nobody Out There that is Any More Hateful' than 'Big Gay' Bloggers

American Family Radio general manager Buster Wilson is joining his AFA colleague Bryan Fischer in expressing his outrage over Louie Giglio’s decision to withdraw from inauguration ceremonies, unleashing a tirade against Think Progress, The New Civil Rights Movement, the Southern Poverty Law Center and us, declaring us the most hateful and mean people in the land. He said that the Christians in America may soon face imprisonment and death over their views on homosexuality. Wilson also claimed that gay rights supporters consider themselves “wiser” than God and Paul the Apostle, apparently unaware that many Christians do not subscribe to the AFA’s anti-gay agenda and interpretation of scripture.

Think Progress, The New Civil Rights Movement, Right Wing Watch, how many other places, how many supported groups in what Bryan Fischer has aptly named the Big Gay movement, think themselves wiser, smarter, more proficient in life than God almighty or the great Apostle Paul. For they take anybody, even pastor Louie Giglio, with the influence that this man has in the world today, they think that anybody, even this man, if they say what the Bible says about homosexuality that they are a dangerous, lying, hateful individual and you should shun them. Make no mistake about it church, that’s where we are today. We are at the place, maybe we’re not thrown in jail for it like pastor Youcef Nadarkhani in Iran, maybe we’re not slaughtered or beheaded for it yet, but make no mistake about it, if you stand and proclaim what the word of God says about certain things, primarily about homosexuality, you are going to be ostracized, you are going to be mocked and ridiculed, you are going to be called names, you are going to be marginalized and you are going to be cast out.

After warning that Christians will be made out to be “lying, hateful” people, he later proclaimed that gay rights bloggers are “lying, hateful people” as “there is nobody out there that is any more hateful than these people are.”

I know for certain, Think Progress is neither. They neither think nor are they progressive, in the traditional sense of the word. These people are hate-filled, mean-spirited, lying, hateful people. If you can take pastor Louie Giglio and marginalize him so much that he looks evil you are some kind of character.



I don’t know how to process that these groups that are so—they call us a hate group. Let me tell you something, there is nobody in the nation that is more hateful than The New Civil Rights Movement, Right Wing Watch and Southern Poverty Law Center and now you can add to the list in my opinion, Think Progress, there is nobody out there that is any more hateful than these people are.

Fischer: Anti-Gay Activists are Now 'the New Rosa Parks' and Victims of Jim Crow

To say that Bryan Fischer was outraged over evangelical pastor Louie Giglio's withdrawal from participation in President Obama’s inauguration over an anti-gay sermon he delivered would be a massive understatement, as Fischer has been venting his fury all day on Twitter and then let loose on his radio program, finally declaring that anti-gay Christians are "now the new Rosa Parks" and the victims of modern-day Jim Crow laws:

Donnelly Seeks to Ban Marriage Equality in the Military to Protect Opponents from feeling Offended

Center for Military Readiness head Elaine Donnelly appeared on In The Market with Janet Parshall yesterday to discuss the Todd Akin-sponsored bill that would ban same-sex marriages at military installations and permit discrimination against gay service members under the guise of a “conscience clause.” The marriage equality ban was removed from the final language but the “conscience” language remained. However, that was not enough for Donnelly, who said that same-sex marriage services at military installations jeopardizes religious freedom:

Donnelly: There’s also pressure to perform same-sex marriages, there’s already been a few that have happened on military bases. Well the new legislation unfortunately did not include that clause, which had been approved by the House, but the conference committee did pass some legislation there to protect the rights of chaplains with regard to religious liberty.

Parshall: How will that play out though because they didn’t go as so far as to say whether or not they would be excused from performing such ceremonies.

Donnelly: The administration is saying that no one will be forced to perform a ceremony with which they disagree for reasons of their sincerely held moral beliefs. But the pressure is on, it’s a chilling effect. If a chaplain says, ‘well I rather not perform that ceremony,’ is that chaplain going to be demoted in terms of promotion? The pressure will be on to comply or to be punished with various kinds of career penalties. You can’t always document these things but you know that over time the pressure would increase. This is why even though there’s been progress made in this particular bill, there is still a lot more that needs done.

According to Donnelly, the freedom of religion in the military can only be secured by ending the freedom of chaplains and houses of worship to conduct marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples.

There are many chaplains who refuse to marry a couple if either partner is unbaptized or had a prior marriage that ended in divorce. Of course, the military would never prohibit unbaptized or divorced people from getting married for the mere reason that there are several chaplains who will not marry them. But that is effectively the argument conservative activists like Donnelly use when they insist that same-sex couples should be prohibited from marrying simply because some chaplains disapprove of it.

Gheen: 'Obama is Arming Illegal Aliens'

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC today issued a press release warning that President Obama is “eager to act as a dictator” in his attempt “to destroy ‘gun equality’ for American citizens.” He also lashed out at voters for electing a “dictator who is arming illegal alien insurgents” and who wants to “reward them with Amnesty while attempting to disarm American citizens.” Gheen previously maintained that Obama is stoking a “conflict with White America” that may require an “illegal and violent” response and floated the idea of the “military coming in or somebody just coming in taking [Obama] into some form of arrest.”

"There's only one group of guns in America that Barack Obama should be working to take off the streets and they are the Fast and Furious Gunwalker scandal guns that his administration used multiple federal agencies to buy for Mexican gangs," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Obama's Fast and Furious assault rifles are currently pointed at American citizens and law enforcement that would dare to stand against the importation of addictive drugs and illegal aliens."

ALIPAC is sounding the alarm because Obama is arming illegal aliens and moving to reward them with Amnesty while attempting to disarm American citizens. Obama is targeting American Defense Rifles in order to destroy "gun equality" for American citizens.



Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is greatly concerned that the Obama administration is currently pushing to institute Amnesty for illegal aliens using unconstitutional dictates instead of legislation though [sic] Congress after being caught arming murderous illegal alien gangs and attempting to disarm Americans!

"As Americans we would be utter fools to allow ourselves to be deprived of gun rights and gun equality with gangs and government by an elected dictator who is arming illegal alien insurgents," said William Gheen. "It is improper for any president to seek to infringe upon any American Constitutional rights, but especially so for a president eager to act as a dictator. Obama is arming illegal aliens and moving to reward them with Amnesty while attempting to disarm American citizens."
