Right Wing Round-Up - 8/12/16

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/12/16

  • Dave Daubenmire declares that "anyone with a modicum of common sense knows that Hillary is not more popular than Trump.  She is yesterday’s news.  She is a hag.  Most men I know cannot stand the Nurse Ratchet similarities that she exudes."
  • Paula White insists that Donald Trump has a "great relationship" with God.
  • Robert Oscar Lopez warns that "the dark side of a Clinton presidency would be not merely difficult, but also intolerable, and that Clinton as president would be incomparably more damaging than the likely flaws of a Trump presidency. Clinton must be stopped at all costs."
  • Bryan Fischer is taking on the important issues.
  • Finally, Brian Brown fumes in NOM's latest fundraising pitch: "I imagine that Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court justice who wrote the opinion a year ago redefining marriage, will be laughing out loud to himself realizing that the most passionate supporters of marriage — NOM's members who love the Lord and who revere what He created — seem to be giving up. Who could blame Anthony Kennedy if he thinks that God lost and he won?"

Michael Savage: 'Demonic' Obama Turning America 'Into A Muslim Nation'

Yesterday, conservative talk show host Michael Savage railed against nonprofit groups involved in resettling refugees, claiming that they are only interested in “raking in the money that’s being thrown at them by the federal government under that demon in the White House, Barack Obama, who wants the country fundamentally transformed into a Muslim nation, he wants it looking like Indonesia rather than like America.”

“The man is demonic in his desire to alter the landscape of this country in a way that no one will ever believe happened,” he said, adding that African Americans “are going to be the biggest losers of Obama’s policies.”

Savage said that “the progressive haters of America have sold us the false notion that multiculturalism is a good thing” and “we are being overrun by invaders, not immigrants; they refuse to learn the language, they hate the culture, they spit on the American flag, they don’t know what the Bill of Rights means and they can care less.”

He regretted that immigrants today aren’t like the Sicilian immigrants of prior decades, despite the fact that Sicilian immigrants were once maligned in the same manner that Savage attacks other immigrants and refugees.

Bryan Fischer: 'I Don't Believe That Women Should Be Entrusted With High Political Office'

On his radio program today, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer reiterated his position that women should not be entrusted with positions of political authority.

Responding to a caller, Fischer stated that "you could make a pretty good biblical case ... that only men are supposed to hold political office."

"That's always the pattern in the word of God," he said. "The kings were all males, when you had a departure from that with Jezebel and Athaliah, it was not a good thing, it did not work out well. Leadership in the church is reserved for men, leadership in the home is reserved for men. In other words, in God's economy, he has designed leadership and authority in society and in the church and in the home to be exercised by men."

"I think you could make a good case that leadership in culture, society, politically as well as in the home, that that is something in God's economy that's reserved for men," Fischer stated. "What if somebody had the courage to go on national TV, somebody of some kind of prominence or visibility, and said, 'Look, I'm going to vote for Trump because he's a man. I don't believe that women should be entrusted with high political office' ... That's the position I happen to take."

Larry Klayman: America Is Headed Towards An All-Out Revolution, Race War And Gender War

On Wednesday, Larry Klayman appeared on Newsmax to discuss his lawsuit against Hillary Clinton over the 2012 Benghazi attack, alleging that even congressional Republicans are part of a “giant cover-up” of what happened in Benghazi.

Klayman, who has repeatedly called for the overthrow of the Obama administration through a mass uprising or a military coup, even staging a failed “Second American Revolution” in front of the White House, claimed that America is headed towards another revolution against the government.

Later, when asked about former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland’s recent comment about Justice Scalia’s death, Klayman said that “the left in this country is evil.”

“The political leftist elite wants to turn this country into a highly socialist state,” he said. “They are disrespectful towards the police, they have incited violence to kill the police and frankly they are destroying this country. It’s a war. It’s a war between left and right. They’ve created a race war, regrettably, between black and white. Hillary Clinton is about ready to do it between men and women.”

He went on to accuse George Soros and Media Matters of trying to throw America into disarray, lamenting that “we are really sinking fast.”

Pat Buchanan: If Trump Loses, There Could Be A Revolution

In a column yesterday, Pat Buchanan warned that if Donald Trump loses the election in November, America could experience a revolution.

Buchanan, citing Trump’s recent suggestion that the election could be “rigged,” said that if Hillary Clinton defeats Trump, “would that not suggest there is something fraudulent about American democracy, something rotten in the state?”

“[T]he Republican electorate should tell its discredited and rejected ruling class: If we cannot get rid of you at the ballot box, then tell us how, peacefully and democratically, we can be rid of you?” he continued. “You want Trump out? How do we get you out? The Czechs had their Prague Spring. The Tunisians and Egyptians their Arab Spring. When do we have our American Spring?”

Buchanan then quoted John F. Kennedy’s remarks on U.S.-Latin American relations: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” Donald Trump told voters in Ohio and Sean Hannity on Fox News. And that hit a nerve.

“Dangerous,” “toxic,” came the recoil from the media.

Trump is threatening to “delegitimize” the election results of 2016.

Well, if that is what Trump is trying to do, he has no small point. For consider what 2016 promised and what it appears about to deliver.

This longest of election cycles has rightly been called the Year of the Outsider. It was a year that saw a mighty surge of economic populism and patriotism, a year when a 74-year-old socialist senator set primaries ablaze with mammoth crowds that dwarfed those of Hillary Clinton.

It was the year that a non-politician, Donald Trump, swept Republican primaries in an historic turnout, with his nearest rival an ostracized maverick in his own Republican caucus, Sen. Ted Cruz.

More than a dozen Republican rivals, described as the strongest GOP field since 1980, were sent packing. This was the year Americans rose up to pull down the establishment in a peaceful storming of the American Bastille.

But if it ends with a Clintonite restoration and a ratification of the same old Beltway policies, would that not suggest there is something fraudulent about American democracy, something rotten in the state?



Specifically, the Republican electorate should tell its discredited and rejected ruling class: If we cannot get rid of you at the ballot box, then tell us how, peacefully and democratically, we can be rid of you?

You want Trump out? How do we get you out?

The Czechs had their Prague Spring. The Tunisians and Egyptians their Arab Spring. When do we have our American Spring?



And if, as the polls show we might, we get Clinton – and TPP, and amnesty, and endless migrations of Third World peoples who consume more tax dollars than they generate, and who will soon swamp the Republicans’ coalition – what was 2016 all about?

Would this really be what a majority of Americans voted for in this most exciting of presidential races?

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable,” said John F. Kennedy.

Happy Birthday Social Security—Let's Remember That Mike Pence Was A Cheerleader For The Program's Destruction

On August 14, 1935, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. Eighty-one years later it still represents one of the most successful social programs in our country’s history.

Nearly two out of every three seniors rely on the Social Security for the majority of their income. If it did not exist, 44 percent of the elderly would live in poverty. Currently only 9 percent do.

As a member of Congress, Donald Trump’s vice presidential nominee Mike Pence was one of the biggest cheerleaders for George W. Bush’s privatization plans and other reforms that would have harmed the program.

As early as 2002, Pence spoke in the House of Representatives in favor of privatization. In 2005, after President Bush proposed reforms, he delivered speech after speech in favor of the proposal. He claimed at the time, “Social Security reform means keeping its promise in tact for seniors and all who choose to remain in the system. But Social Security reform also means offering a better deal to younger Americans in the form of voluntary personal accounts.”

A consistent theme of Pence’s was that privatization and other reforms would save the program from insolvency and protect seniors from future cuts. This was not true.

According to an analysis at the time from the Center for American Progress, such reforms would actually “worsen Social Security’s financial outlook. In addition:

  • Bush Would Address Solvency Solely by Cutting Benefits.
  • Benefit Cuts Would Come Through a Change in the Benefit Formula.
  • Bush’s Benefit Cuts Would Affect 70 Percent of All Taxpayers.
  • More Benefit Cuts Down the Road under Bush’s Plan.

Furthermore, Bush’s privatization plan would have added “trillions of dollars” to the deficit, while only providing “limited” investment choices for seniors. Yet Pence enthusiastically supported this policy.

Paul Krugman wrote of Bush’s Social Security proposal, “Privatizing Social Security—replacing the current system, in whole or in part, with personal investment accountswon't do anything to strengthen the system's finances. If anything, it will make things worse. Nonetheless, the politics of privatization depend crucially on convincing the public that the system is in imminent danger of collapse, that we must destroy Social Security in order to save it.”

On Social Security’s birthday, let’s remember that Mike Pence was one of those cheering for the program’s destruction.

Glenn Beck Mocks Donald Trump For Being Reduced To Renting Beck's Email List

Glenn Beck spent a segment of his radio broadcast today discussing the fact that he has rented his email list to Donald Trump, who has frequently attacked and taunted Beck, even though Beck has said that Trump, if elected, would be like Mussolini and throw Beck in jail:

 

 

Beck openly mocked Trump for being reduced to paying Beck to gain access to his audience now after repeatedly refusing Beck's offers to appear on his radio or television program, saying that this is a sign that Trump realizes that he is getting his "ass kicked" in the presidential campaign.

"This guy has not reached out to our audience, ever," Beck said. "Ever! He doesn't think you matter ... But this is a recognition that he needs this audience. This is a recognition of, 'I'm getting my ass kicked and I have to go to Glenn frickin' Beck and his audience because I need those ten million people to consider me.'"

"I think Donald Trump is dangerous," Beck continued. "I think he is scary as hell ... He's not man enough or have the balls enough to come on [my show,] but I'll take his money."

"I'm sure Donald Trump didn't expect this conversation to be happening," he said. "I don't think he was involved in this; his campaign did all of this. This should be recognized as Donald Trump is in so much trouble, he is now paying me to run ads in my email newsletters to reach out to an audience that he said he didn't need, nor does he even want. That's how much trouble they're in! To me, that speaks volumes. Volumes."

To listen to Beck's entire discussion of this topic, skip to the 1:20 mark of today's radio broadcast:

Is Hillary Clinton The Antichrist Or An Illuminati Witch? Jennifer LeClaire Is Just Asking

That provocative question headlines a new Jennifer LeClaire column for Charisma, which promotes what she calls a “documentary” titled “Hillary Clinton – The Antichrist Or the Illuminati Witch?” LeClaire writes:

I don't believe Hillary is the Antichrist, but the fact that so many people are utterly convinced is telling. The chatter continues. One thing is clear, believers are paying close attention to the signs of the times—including the rise of the Antichrist.

The video, though, does offer some shocking info about Hillary. Check it out for yourself.

“Documentary” is a far too generous term for the incoherent 22-minute mash-up of right-wing, Hillary-hating news clips, interviews and voiceovers that appears on the "End Of The World" YouTube channel.

Disappointingly, the video doesn’t directly address the question of whether Clinton might be the Antichrist. It does recycle conspiracy theories like Clinton’s supposed plan to confiscate everyone’s guns and talks about “that sexual relationship with Huma Abedin that is whispered about in the dark corners of Washington.”

The video includes snippets from Benghazi hearings, attacks on Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger, right-wing news coverage of the Clinton’s email problems, and old news clips about the Whitewater scandal. It includes bits of video and audio from some recognizable speakers like Dick Morris, Robert Novak, Phyllis Schlafly, Glenn Beck and Ben Carson. Oddly, it ends with a number of somewhat endearing clips of Clinton gamely dancing with celebrities during speaking appearances like Ellen DeGeneres’s television show.

The most inflammatory comments seem to have been snagged from an Infowars video featuring Larry Nichols, who is identified by Infowars as a former “Clinton machine insider.” Nichols says of Hillary Clinton, “she’s an animal.” He says that when the Clintons were still in Arkansas, Bill told him that Hillary would go to Los Angeles once a month with a group of women to be “part of a witches’ church.”

This is the “documentary” that LeClaire writes is “demanding answers.” What is the question exactly?

Trump Adviser Michael Flynn: Islam Is A 'Cancer' And 'A Political Ideology' That 'Hides Behind Being A Religion'

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.), a Donald Trump adviser who was floated as a potential running mate before the GOP nominee eventually picked Mike Pence, delivered a speech in Dallas on Wednesday at a gathering for the group ACT! for America.

Flynn, who serves as an adviser to the anti-Muslim group, told the audience that Islam is “a cancer” and “a political ideology” that “definitely hides behind being a religion,” while also pushing a bogus rumor about creeping Sharia in Texas.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

The contents of Flynn's book, How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, was a main topic of discussion. He took special interest in discussing what he called the dangers of Shariah law in Texas.

"Islam is a political ideology," Flynn said. "It definitely hides behind being a religion."

Flynn said that earlier in the day he met with Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne, who has been a polarizing figure in the public debate over Islam and the treatment of Muslims since rumors of an illegal Shariah court at the Irving Islamic Center began spreading in 2015.

"Beth is incredibly brave," Flynn said. "Vote for her for anything."

He likened Islam, a religion with 1.6 billion adherents worldwide, to "a cancer" and said that documents recovered from terrorist organizations instruct followers to "get into the bloodstream of the opposition," which Flynn said means to attack Western nations.

Flynn described himself as a scholar of American history and of religion. He said he had focused many years of study on the influence of religion on the Founding Fathers.

"This Islamic ideology was something they wanted nothing to do with," he said.

Flynn also told the crowd that Bernie Sanders is “an avowed communist” and sidestepped an audience question about how the U.S. can “deport Muslims.”

Such remarks aren’t very surprising, as Trump himself has said that “Islam hates us” and that Muslims should be banned from “entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”

Flynn recently came under media scrutiny for his ties to Vladimir Putin and his retweet of an anti-Semitic message, which he later apologized for.
