Ben Carson: To Know Obama, Read 'Mein Kampf'

In an interview with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, Ben Carson said that if people want to know the truth about President Obama, they should simply “read ‘Mein Kampf’ and read the works of Vladimir Lenin.” “Mein Kampf,” of course, was written by Adolf Hitler and is filled with anti-Communist diatribes.

Carson, a likely Republican presidential candidate who is obsessed with the conspiracy-theory-laden book “The Naked Communist,” strongly hinted in the interview that he believes Obama is a communist.

Carson has previously claimed that Obama wants to turn America into Nazi Germany and a Gestapo-like state, warning that “we live in a Gestapo age.”

He also told Hayworth, a former Arizona Republican congressman, that Obama and other Democrats are using the uproar in Ferguson, Missouri, to “manipulate” people and “fan the flames of division.”

Carson said the fatal shooting of Michael Brown “has less to do with racism and a lot more to do with some deep cultural issues that are producing individuals who are likely to end up in trouble with the law, who are likely to end up in conflict with each other which will lead to violence and death.”

Mat Staver: LGBT Acceptance Is 'Very Dangerous' To Society

Last week, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver appeared on “In The Market with Janet Parshall” to argue that the LGBT rights movement is eroding America’s moral compass.

Staver pointed his finger at Christians who either support LGBT equality or have given up fighting against it, realizing they are on the losing side of a political showdown.

“There is some resolution to say, ‘Oh, we’ve lost this battle, we just need to figure out how to move forward and coexist,’” he said. “And that is a wrong, very dangerous position to be in. You cannot coexist, you cannot give up on something, that is literally an attack on God himself.”

Staver added that marriage equality is part of a larger agenda that seeks to “abolish gender, abolish sexual morals and norms” in an act that defies the “natural created order.”

“To assume that you can go against the created order is hubris, it’s arrogance, it’s dangerous and it is not something in which we can simply say, ‘the battle’s over, we need to figure out how to coexist.’ There is no coexistence,” he said.

Santorum: Call Secularism A Religion So We Can Ban It From Public Schools

It was just yesterday that the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer was calling for people with HIV to be quarantined in the name of protecting the public health. So naturally, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum appeared on Fischer's radio program today to share his excitement at having partnered with the AFA on his most recent film "One Generation Away."

During the discussion, Santorum said that Christians have allowed their faith to be removed from the public square and need to start fighting back, arguing that removing the Bible from public school classrooms is not neutrality but rather the promotion of the secular worldview. He suggested that conservative Christians should respond by "calling secularism a religion because if we did, then we could ban that too."

Claiming that the absence of religion is itself a religion, Santorum said that Christians must reassert themselves and insist that Christianity "should be taught in the schools" instead of worrying about offending people:

David Dewhurst: Unaccompanied Minors Are A 'Mirage'

Speaking with Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst said that unaccompanied minors fleeing drug-related violence in Central America are just a distraction engineered by President Obama.

“This whole conversation about the unaccompanied children, ladies and gentlemen, this is a mirage, it is a public relations effort, this is an effort by the Obama administration to divert your attention,” he said.

Dewhurst said the children are a small share of the immigrant population compared to the many criminals he said are crossing the border.

Tony Perkins: Overturning Citizens United Will Anger The Founding Fathers

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council thinks the Founding Fathers would be upset by the push to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, warning on “Washington Watch” yesterday that a constitutional amendment would be “dangerous” to the country.

Perkins said amendment supporters “think they know better than the Founding Fathers” and seek to “rewrite the First Amendment to essentially silence political speech and strip it out of the First Amendment.”

He said he can’t believe anyone would support an amendment to allow voters to pass campaign finance regulations, even though a majority of voters, including Republicans, support an amendment [PDF].

Perkins previously claimed that overturning Citizens United is a sign of anti-Christian persecution, even going so far as to link the effort to the imprisonment of a Christian Sudanese woman.

McFarland: Obama Voters 'Need To Get On Their Knees And Ask God's Forgiveness'

Alex McFarland is a Christian apologist who hosts a radio program on the American Family Association's radio network and serves as director of Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University, where he occasionally organizes right-wing conferences featuring speakers like of David Barton, Ben Carson, and Todd Starnes.

In a piece published on Charisma today, McFarland reiterated his belief that Barack Obama's presidency is God's judgment upon this nation, saying that everyone who voted for him must fall on their needs and beg for God's forgiveness:

We have a president today who has not only fundamentally violated his oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution but has also actually acted against our nation and our national interests. These aren't opinions; they are facts. And the American people need to be aware of them.

...

These are not simply political issues or political differences. They are fundamental worldview issues. What do we believe about life? What do we believe about liberty? Any president who believes the sanctity of life is nonexistent, the rule of law noncritical and the sovereignty of America nonessential is a president whose administration is without redemption. And the consequences our nation and the world are suffering may very well be evidence of God's judgment against a nation that has rejected Him.

As in 1776, this is not a time for inaction; it's a time for fervent prayer and repentance across our nation.  Those who supported this presidency—either through ignorance or through malicious intent—have supported the taking of human life, the rejection of Israel's right to defend itself, and the promotion of homosexuality to the detriment of the family. And those who supported these things need to get on their knees and ask God's forgiveness for violating His Word and to pray for His mercy on our nation.

And we as a nation need to corporately turn to God, repent and pray for constitutional and moral leadership that honors God's Word. Anything less will mean more Americans will die, more families will be destroyed, and the world will become a more dangerous place for life and liberty. And that is a tragedy none of us should be willing to accept.

Jonathan Cahn Links Legal Abortion To Vietnam War, 9/11

Jonathan Cahn, a messianic rabbi and End Times prophet who is a favorite among Religious Right activists and politicians , claimed in an interview last week that America’s defeat in the Vietnam War and the September 11 attacks were both the result of divine judgment linked to the legalization of abortion in 1973’s Roe v. Wade.

Cahn’s theories are based on the idea that major world events occur on “Shemitah” years, which fall every seven years on the Hebrew calendar, and are either positive or negative depending on God’s opinion of a nation at any given time. He has explained, for instance, that the September 11 attacks and the 2008 financial collapse both happened in “Shemitah” years, and that God allowed them to occur to send a warning to the United States about legal abortion and same-sex marriage.

In an interview on the show “Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural” last week, Cahn expounded on his theory that 9/11 was a punishment from God, and added a new idea: that America’s withdrawal from Vietnam was a warning from God about Roe v. Wade.

Rick Wiles: Gay Rights Will Turn America Into Antichrist Kingdom, Spark Nuclear Attack

On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” Rick Wiles spoke to televangelist Irvin Baxter about America’s role in the End Times war which, according to Baxter, will “kill one-third of mankind.”

Wiles, however, took issue with Baxter’s claim that Russia will join the “kingdom of the Antichrist,” which comes as no surprise since Wiles is a big fan of Vladimir Putin. In fact, he has his own idea for which country will lead the Antichrist kingdom: the United States.

“The country that’s acting like it’s part of the kingdom of the Antichrist is the United States of America, and Russia is standing against homosexual marriage, they’re standing for traditional family values,” Wiles said. “The United States is exporting its wickedness, we’re using our power and might to force nations to change their laws to accept abortion, to accept homosexual marriage and homosexual rights, so which country is part of the Antichrist system and which is not?”

Wiles further backed up his point by claiming that America has betrayed Israel and “is behind ISIS, it’s the United States government that created ISIS.”

He also repeated his claim that America will soon face a nuclear attack for embracing “rebellion” and “debauchery,” referring to the attack as a “wakeup call” from God.
