Markell Fears Minnesota Cities May Be Destroyed Over Gay Marriage

Like her fellow Minnesota-based conservative talk show host Bradlee Dean, End Times broadcaster Jan Markell is warning that Minnesota is about to experience divine punishment over the state’s new marriage equality law. She told the American Family Association’s news service that gay people and Muslims have turned Minnesota into “the occult capital of America,” noting that “God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality.”

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, laments that The North Star State has become a mecca for many unpleasant things.

"We're the occult capital of America," she tells OneNewsNow. "We certainly have more Islamic influence probably than any other place, other than Dearborn, Michigan. We're certainly one of the gay capitals, and now with homosexual marriage a reality, many Christians, solid pro-family-type people -- we don't know where to run to."

And Markell believes Minnesota Christians are concerned about God's judgment on the state.

"Whether it be economically or some weather-related kind of a tragedy, but God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality; He speaks out on this issue in a very clear manner and calls this an abomination," the Olive Tree Ministries founder warns.

Markell also hosted David Wheaton of The Christian Worldview on her weekend program, Understanding the Times, to discuss Jason Collins and the public reaction to his decision to come out of the closet. Wheaton said that acceptance of Collins and other gay people is turning America into a “disgrace to God,” while Markell claimed that President Obama’s support for Collins proves that “we are headed into big trouble.”

Cuccinelli Running Mate’s Epic Watermelon-Smashing Campaign Ad

E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP’s newly minted nominee for Lt. Governor, is not a subtle guy. His extreme rhetoric and views, which we’ve been covering for years, will come as a shock to most Virginians. So will his Tea Party antics. In that sense, Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t have found a better running mate.

In this campaign ad from last year — when Jackson lost badly to George Allen in the GOP Senate primary – Jackson is seen wielding an axe to chop melons representing the federal budget, unemployment and Obamacare. Jackson says that Obama wants to use “a scalpel to cut the federal budget” while he believes “we need to use an axe.” Watch:

Ah, yes. “Bold, decisive leadership.” That’s exactly what comes to mind when watching the ad. Incidentally, the axe was a recurring theme, as seen here:

Fans of the 1980s watermelon-smashing comedian Gallagher may rejoice, but Virginians need to understand that Jackson isn’t just a sideshow – he’s a real threat. Ken Cuccinelli and Jackson are favored to win if voters don’t turn out this November like they did in 2012.

Radical End Times Radio Host Rick Wiles Interviews Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)

On Friday's radio broadcast, End Times radio host Rick Wiles interviewed Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) to discuss Fleming's letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel raising concerns about reports that Pentagon officials had met with Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

It was more than a little ironic to listen to Wiles and Fleming voice their collective disbelief that anyone from the government would dare to meet with someone who had said derogatory things about those with whom they disagree:

Wiles: Congressman Fleming is on the telephone. Congressman, glad to have you on the program.

Fleming: Hey Rick, great to talk with you again.

Wiles: I appreciate you being in the forefront of questioning Defense Chief Hagel on his Mikey Weinstein matter.  Has Secretary Hagel responded to your letter yet?

Fleming: We have no heard back from Secretary Hagel and I think that's most unfortunate again because Mikey Weinstein is somebody whose organization name, religious freedom, is an oxymoron for what it really is, which is religious non-freedom.  And so it's very disconcerting to know that a guy with this kind of past, someone who openly hate Christians, who calls Christians the Taliban and al Qaeda and talks about Christians committing spiritual rape and many other derogatory things; it's very problematic for someone to get high-level meetings with the Adjutant General of the Air Force and other high-level officers.

...

Wiles: You know, Congressman, I'm a pastor and I would never use that kind of language in referring to people who have other religious beliefs serving in the military, I just think that kind of language is over the top so I can't understand why the Pentagon would be meeting with somebody talking like this.

Fleming: That is a very, very important question because that really smacks of bigotry.

Allow us to point out that Wiles, who says he would never use over the top language, has asserted that President Obama is "evil," demon-possessed" and a "devil from Hell" while warning that President Obama's policies will lead to genocide against Christians and declaring that "Barack Obama has spiritually sodomized the nation."

So just let it sink in that Rep. Fleming spent twenty minutes talking to Wiles about how outrageous it is that high-level government officials would ever talk with someone who has said "derogatory things."

Krikorian Blames 'Ethnic Chauvinist Groups' for Immigration Woes

Appearing on “The Final Say” radio program earlier this month, Center for Immigration Studies executive director Mark Krikorian lamented that “left-wing groups, ethnic chauvinist groups and big business all work together to prevent the enforcement of immigration laws.”

If “ethnic chauvinist” sounds familiar, it’s because that’s what Arizona’s superintendent of schools called the Chicano studies classes that he and his fellow Republicans managed to ban from public schools.

Krikorian: Quite honestly, Mexico has a tighter immigration system, at least on paper, than we do. In fact, Mexico’s immigration system is much more punitive than ours and much more restrictive, more like Japan’s in the sense of who’s allowed in and what rights they have. It’s very primitive, I would say, backwards in the sense of what the rules are, but they actually enforce their rules. That’s the problem for us, is that we… the political incentive to actually enforce the rules is very weak here because left-wing groups, ethnic chauvinist groups and big business all work together to prevent the enforcement of immigration laws.

Host: Which, by its very nature, should make us all run in fear.

Krikorian: Sure, yeah, absolutely. I mean, it’s all big institutions. Big Government, Big Business, Big Media, Big Philanthropy, they’re all on the same side.

E.W. Jackson: Obamas are Communist Sympathizers Who Promote the 'Liberal Plantation of Psychological Bondage'

Back in 2010, Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. nominee E. W. Jackson appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show to discuss First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the NAACP National Convention. Jackson and Mefferd were peeved by Obama’s remark that “when stubborn inequalities still persist -- in education and health, in income and wealth -- I think [NAACP’s] founders would urge us to increase our intensity, and to increase our discipline and our focus and keep fighting for a better future for our children and our grandchildren,” which Jackson said he found “disturbing” and that “whenever I hear this there is an ugly word that always comes to mind and that ugly word is Communism.”

Jackson claimed that President Obama and the First Lady “don’t understand our country, I don’t think they even like it,” warning that the Obamas are “the intellectual cousins and heirs of a Communist, collectivist way of thinking which is anathema to what this country is all about.”

He said he intends to ask black voters why they are “allowing the Tea Party to be made into your enemy and the radical homosexual rights people to be made into your friends and allies when they reject everything you believe and most of the Tea Party activists embrace everything you believe.” Jackson urged African Americans to “come out of that indoctrination, what I call a liberal plantation of psychological bondage.”

Jackson also lashed out at the NAACP, which he said has “completely lost its credibility,” and other civil rights groups as “race baiters.” He said that if NAACP activists were truly worshiping “the God of the Bible then they ought to be in agreement with the Tea Party.”

E.W. Jackson: A Vote for Me is a Vote for 'Glory of God'

Virginia’s new Republican Lt. Gov nominee E.W. Jackson made an unsuccessful run last year for the GOP nomination to the U.S. Senate. In this “message to the church” from that campaign, Jackson said there was a “calling on his life” to run for the Senate seat. He warned that “our culture is becoming increasingly hostile to Christianity” and he criticized Rep. Bobby Scott, a strong advocate of church-state separation. Jackson urged Christians to “rise up,” go to the polls, and “cast a vote for the glory of God,” i.e., for his Senate candidacy. The section quoted below begins at 2:35.

“This is an emergency, a critical point in American history. Continuing down the path we are on will result in escalating persecution of Christianity, but even worse, risk losing the favor of God on our country, which would be an unimaginable horror. I am asking Christians to unite on the biblical principles which founded our country and help me take those principles to the United States Senate. Those who understand the history of our country know the vital role the church played not only in the establishment of hospitals, colleges, and a host of other charitable organizations, but in the revolution which established this great nation. If Christians do not rise up, the future of our country is bleak. I ask you to go to the polls on June 12 and cast a vote for the glory of God. I’m not a perfect man, but I love the Lord, and I love this country, and I will always be grateful that He has saved me and gave me citizenship to the most free and prosperous nation in history. I will fight to see to it that it stays that way. As a brother in Christ, I ask for your prayers, your support, and for your vote on June 12 in the Republican primary.…"

Barton: AIDS Is God's Penalty for Those Who Engage in 'Shameful Sexual Acts'

On today's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton reiterated his belief that we will never be able to find a cure for AIDS because the disease is God's punishment for homosexuality, but taking it a step further by saying that even if we do cure AIDS, new deadly diseases will continue to emerge because God says there must be a "penalty" for engaging in these kinds of "shameful sexual acts":

I've gone on record before, and I'll say it again: I think Romans 1:27 is one of the reasons that we'll never find a complete cure for AIDS; and if we do there will be another disease pop up like this bacterial meningitis because the Bible says this, Romans 1:27 says 'men committed shameful acts with other men, sexual acts, and received in themselves the due penalty for the error.'

There is going to be a consequence for this type of sexual behavior, so even if we find a cure for AIDS, something like bacterial meningitis is going to pop up; if we cure that, something else is going to pop up because God says there is a penalty in your own body when you do this kind of sexual acts - the Bible calls them shameful sexual acts - and so we as Christians have to have that same position, regardless of what the culture says.

Schlafly Worries About Patriotism of Today's Immigrants Compared to 'Irish, Italian, Jewish' Predecessors

Phyllis Schlafly has been going all out in opposition to comprehensive immigration reform, warning that would be “suicide for the GOP” and that it’s all part of President Obama’s plan to “destroy our system.”

So it makes sense that this month’s "Phyllis Schlafly Report" is devoted entirely to opposing immigration reform. In particular, Schlafly is worried that immigration authorities aren’t “vetting” immigration applicants to “make sure that the applicant really wants to become an American.” This, she claims, is more necessary than in the past because “the immigrants of earlier generations, Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc., certainly did want to be Americans; like Irving Berlin, their attitude was God Bless America.”

Schlafly is concerned as well that immigrants be made to “accept the rule that disputes in our courts must be decided according to U.S. law, not any foreign law,” a nod to the Right’s bogus “Sharia law” conspiracy theory.

But don’t read too much into this. After all, Schlafly has explicitly assured us that her opposition to immigration reform is “not racist, isolationist, nativist, or xenophobic.”

The vetting of immigrants should make sure that the applicant really wants to become an American. The immigrants of earlier generations, Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc., certainly did want to be Americans; like Irving Berlin, their attitude was God Bless America.

There is plenty of evidence that legal and illegal immigrants of various nationalities, in contravention of our citizenship pledge, retain their loyalty to the land they came from. Brian Fishman, who studies terrorism at the New America Foundation in Washington, says, “I think there’s often a sense of divided loyalties in these cases where Americans turn to violent jihad — are you American first or are you Muslim first?”

Our government should investigate thoroughly and reject those who do not want to become Americans, obey our Constitution and laws, speak our language, and salute our Flag. And they have to accept the rule that disputes in our courts must be decided according to U.S. law, not any foreign law.
