Over the weekend, the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia collectively reached a deal with Iran in which Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for a loosening of sanctions against the nation. Israel is not happy with the agreement, which means that Bryan Fischer is not happy with it either because God will now curse America since it has dishonored the descendants of Abraham. "The main reason that we ought to stand with Israel," Fischer explained, "is because God does. We, as a Christian nation, ought to stand with Israel because God does.... MORE

On Saturday, Tea Party Nation emailed readers a TPN blog post, “The Gay Food Nazis,” which argues that progressives are “hypocrites” for supporting portion control and gay rights. Timothy Birdnow, who blamed the Sandy Hook shooting on teachers and called for school to hire George Zimmerman, attacked Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon for his decision to recognize married same-sex couples for tax purposes. “If controlling the kinds of food and portion sizes that children are allowed is a state-sanctioned function, than shouldn't controlling homosexual imagery and...

Last week, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) joined the McCarthyite group Citizens For National Security (CFNS) at a forum highlighting the supposed security threat posed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its “seditious and subversive” activities. The day after the briefing, anti-Muslim activist Deborah Weiss spoke to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association to promote a CFNS’s new report on CAIR. Rios kicked off the interview by accusing CAIR — which she mistakenly called the Council for American Immigration Relations — of working with Al Qaeda... MORE

At least Mark Krikorian knows his audience. In an interview with WorldNetDaily today, the Center for Immigration Studies director urged House Republicans who support immigration reform to oppose the Senate’s bipartisan immigration plan simply in order to deny President Obama a “victory.” “The only thing he has left now that would salvage the wreckage of his administration is an amnesty,” Krikorian told WND. “And why any Republican, even if they agreed with him, would save President Obama’s political fortunes is beyond me.” MORE

At last week’s Reclaim America Now rally, a placard next to the speaker’s podium featured a Thomas Jefferson quote that many speakers cited: "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." But there is apparently no evidence that Jefferson ever said this: the website of Monticello, Jefferson’s home, lists it among “spurious” quotations attributed to him. Larry Klayman repeatedly described the Second American Revolution he is launching in nonviolent terms. He says massive peaceful civil... MORE

After President Obama was elected, the right-wing Judicial Confirmation Network changed its name to the Judicial Crisis Network and altered its mission from “working to ensure a fair appointment process of highly qualified judges and justices” to blocking anyone Obama appoints to the bench. The group’s name and mission statement aren’t the only things to have changed under a Democratic president. JCN’s chief counsel Carrie Severino appeared last week on Sandy Rios In The Morning to decry the Senate’s recent move to modify the filibuster to allow a simple... MORE

At last week’s less-than-spectacular kickoff for the Second American Revolution, Larry Klayman announced that President Obama has until this coming Friday, November 29, to resign. If he doesn’t, Klayman and his friends will move forward with their plan to organize mass civil disobedience, force the resignation of President Obama and the Congress, and replace them with a government-in-waiting to be formed in Philadelphia in the coming weeks. The idea was even too much for Alan Keyes, who decided not to show up at Klayman’s rally in Washington DC last week.  Klayman read... MORE

Among the speakers at Larry Klayman’s rally in Washington was Brooke McGowan, a Tea Party activist from North Carolina. She had also spoken at the “We the People” rally on Veteran’s Day. McGowan, who was introduced as a representative of the Tea Party News Network, devoted her remarks to the need for national repentance, declaring that “we are in dire trouble today in America. We are a nation under judgment.” Among the reasons McGowan cited were abortion, religious pluralism, and church-state separation: “In this nation we have turned away from the... MORE

We have written a lot in recent months about the efforts by the Religious Right to export their homophobia and help other nations institute draconian anti-gay policies that these activists have been unable to implement here in the United States. So it was with great interest that we listened to today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program as Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver revealed that he had recently returned from Peru where he had been invited to help the government fight President Obama's colonialist effort to force an anti-God agenda upon the nation. As Staver explained,... MORE

After his White House rally of “millions” of Tea Party activists flopped, Larry Klayman took to WorldNetDaily on Friday to declare victory, likening the conservatives who “massed in front of the White House” to the founding fathers, Moses and Jesus Christ. Klayman also blasted the “slanderous” coverage from “the self-anointed Rev. Al Sharpton and MSNBC, aided by the equally degenerate People for the American Way,” which he calls an “atheist socialist organization” that “dedicates itself to the destruction of the tea party and...
