WND columnist and occasional Fox News commentator Erik Rush thinks President Obama is basically Damien from “The Omen.” On his radio show Tuesday, Rush argued that just like Damien Thorn, who is the Antichrist in “The Omen” series, Obama has a mysterious background and participates in “actual demonic or Satanic activity.” Rush cites a Moral Matters blog post: “Demonic Obama: America’s Omen Child.” Some of you (who are older) may remember the past popular movie, “The Omen” Its subject focus was an adopted boy born under...

WorldNetDaily’s Jack Cashill believes that the allegations of domestic violence against George Zimmerman are part of a big liberal media conspiracy, even though one of the claims occurred before the Trayvon Martin trial. In another WND story defending Zimmerman in the face of new accusations of abuse, Cashill claimed Zimmerman’s estranged wife and “his latest ‘victim,’ girlfriend Samantha Scheibe,” concocted their claims to garner media attention and “betrayed” Zimmerman by going to the police after he threatened them. While Cashill thinks this... MORE

After waging an unprecedented campaign of obstructionism against President Obama’s nominees, Republicans are now crying crocodile tears over a rules change that would end the filibuster on certain judicial nominees. NBC News points out that Republicans are not blocking judicial nominees over “concerns about ideology or qualifications, but over the president’s ability to appoint ANYONE to these vacancies.” This unprecedented blockade leaves Democrats with few options, as dozens of nominees are left unable to receive a simple confirmation vote. It’s even harder to... MORE

Senate Democrats are looking increasingly serious about the possibility of changing the Senate rules to permit a 51-vote majority to end debate on nominees to the executive branch and lower federal courts – the so-called “nuclear option.” The move would come after Senate Republicans abused the filibuster to block votes on all three of President Obama’s nominees to fill vacancies on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The D.C. Circuit nominees are among 17 federal judicial nominees currently waiting for Senate floor votes. Thirteen of these... MORE

Just as Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn was signing the marriage equality bill into law, right-wing Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the Roman Catholic diocese of Springfield performed an exorcism over the state to cast out what he calls the Satanic forces behind same-sex marriage. He told worshipers that the anti-gay exorcism was to show that “the church loves homosexual persons and looks upon them with compassion.” The Chicago Sun-Times reports: Before a mostly full cathedral, the head of the capital city’s Roman Catholic flock looked both to the heavens and to Gov. Pat Quinn... MORE

Apparently, state chapters of the Christian Coalition still exist and the one in Alabama is launching a prayer and fasting campaign to save the state. Rick Joyner is celebrating thirty years of ministry ... and false prophecy. Costco has apologized for that fact that some Bibles in one store were accidentally labeled as "fiction." Another victory for Todd Starnes! William Gheen has a list of "traitors" in the Republican Party who need to be primaried. "An innovative action role-playing game [where] the message of the gospel is delivered... MORE

Even though the millions of people that Larry Klayman confidently predicted would attend his anti-Obama gathering yesterday never showed up, at least one speaker thought the event, which attracted well under one hundred people, would have historical significance. Addressing the rally — which called for a coup to oust President Obama and a “Second American Revolution” — former GOP congressman Bob Barr demanded the House of Representatives consider impeaching the president. Barr, who played a major role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is... MORE

Back in September, we reported on attempts by non-biologist members of the Texas State Board of Education’s biology-textbook review committee to require textbook publishers to insert “creation science based on biblical principles” into high school textbooks used in the state. People For the American Way joined a campaign led by the Texas Freedom Network to deliver 300,000 petitions to the state board urging them to keep creationism out of science classes. The next month, TFN reported that none of the 14 major textbook publishers had bowed to pressure to include biblical... MORE

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is teaming up with an Islamophobic fringe group, the Florida-based Citizens For National Security (CFNS), for a Capitol Hill briefing today at which they are planning to accuse the Council on American-Islamic Relations of “advancing its agenda of radical Islam” and backing a campaign of “extortion, intimidation and subversion.” Republican members of Congress regularly demonize CAIR: One former representative even called the organization a “terrorist organization.” CFNS previously collaborated with then-congressman Allen West. Either... MORE
