Ted Nugent's Anti-Semitic Meltdown Continues

Musician and NRA board member Ted Nugent is receiving criticism from civil rights group and praise from white nationalists after posting multiple anti-Semitic rants on his Facebook page this week. But, as Timothy Johnson of Media Matters notes, Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is “still touting praise” from Nugent.

Nugent, who in the last few days suggested that gun reform is an evil Jewish plot, portrayed Jewish leaders as Nazis paving the way for the next Holocaust and mocked Holocaust victims as “soulless sheep,” has now engaged in several debates on his Facebook page over his remarks.

In one debate, Nugent defended himself by saying that he was a war hero in the Iraq War.

Nugent did not serve in the Iraq War, although he did meet with troops in Iraq alongside fellow musician Toby Keith as part of a USO tour. There is a running debate as to whether Nugent faked a medical exam in order to avoid the Vietnam War draft.

The conservative entertainer also criticized a Jewish gun group, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, for issuing a statement condemning his “deeply anti-Semitic comments.”

In his response, Nugent condemned the group’s “sad bullshit” and said that if he had lived in Nazi Germany, he would have helped lead “the charge to disarm Nazis and kill them with their own Lugers.”

How tragic that the self inflicted scourge of political correctness can blind so many otherwise intelligent people! Jews...

Linda Harvey: Parents Should Take To The Streets To Oppose LGBT Rights

In her weekly WorldNetDaily column yesterday, Mission America’s Linda Harvey once again railed against LGBT rights, this time voicing her outrage about the Ad Council’s “Love has No Labels” video.

Harvey complained that the video, which features same-sex couples, “makes some of us want to gag” and, on top of that, undermines the true spirit of Valentine’s Day.

“These ads flagrantly celebrate sin interspersed with legitimate relationships, in the typical 'LGBT' practice of using natural families and even impressionable children as human shields,” she wrote, warning that acceptance of same-sex couples will eventually normalize incest and pedophilia.

Harvey also said that a LGBT-themed youth conference sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign over Valentine’s Day weekend “should draw parents nationwide to the streets in protest.”

How will you celebrate Valentine’s Day? God is the author of love, and Scripture reveals some marvelous descriptions of both human and godly love.

But the contrast between God’s expressions of love and some in our secular culture could not be greater.

Many of you have seen the TV ad showing couples hugging and kissing behind a screen where they appear only in X-ray form. This campaign from Valentine’s Day last year continued into 2016.

When one couple emerges from behind the screen, the audience gasps to see two women. In the longer YouTube version, a small boy accompanies a male couple, presumably making them a “family.” The ad’s tag lines try to convince us that “love has no gender” and “love has no labels.”

Which makes some of us want to gag. These ads flagrantly celebrate sin interspersed with legitimate relationships, in the typical “LGBT” practice of using natural families and even impressionable children as human shields.



Are you buying this, that it doesn’t matter what form love takes? That’s what “LGBT” groups have been selling for years, the cultural deceit that many relationships one calls love can be justifiably sexualized. No caring person should object, it is claimed, and experimental forms deserve “equality” and even legitimacy as marriage.

The recklessness of such policies is obvious to many of you, I’m sure. Are there limits? How about adults and teens? How about siblings? Do these types of “love” deserve no labels?



But what should draw parents nationwide to the streets in protest is the type of “love” being promoted to vulnerable minors by adults in positions of seeming credibility. And on Valentine’s Day weekend, no less.

The largest homosexual group in the country, the Human Rights Campaign, is sponsoring again this year a conference for teachers, youth counselors and youth themselves, February 12-14, near Dallas, Texas. Last year’s conference in Portland was radical enough. This year’s is even worse.

Called “Time to Thrive,” this presentation of legitimized sleaze is like so many aspects of the homosexual agenda directed to youth: The labels and terms are deceptive, because no child or teen will “thrive” if they embrace homosexuality or gender confusion.

Bryan Fischer Wants Every Member Of Congress To Have To Pass A Test Administered By David Barton Before Taking Office

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who suggested that every lawyer that works for the federal government ought to be required to attend and pass a class taught by right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton before being hired.

Fischer, of course, thought that was a great idea and suggested that it ought to apply to every member of Congress as well.

"I like your idea," Fischer told the caller. "Everybody, before they take their seat in the halls of Congress, ought to pass an exam on the history of the United States and on the Constitution of the United States administered by David Barton and WallBuilders. I mean, that ought to be a minimum."

"Let's see to it," he declared, "that every congressman has to pass a test on the history of the United States and the Constitution administered by our good friends at WallBuilders."

Michele Bachmann Says Progressive Taxation Causes People To Violate The Ten Commandments

In the latest episode of his "Foundations of Freedom" series, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton was once again joined by Michele Bachmann, who railed against the progressive income tax as an unbliblical system that causes Americans to violate the Ten Commandments.

Barton and Bachmann, a former Republican congresswoman from Minnesota, were discussing the topic of "economics and the Bible" and spent most of the program attacking progressive taxation for violating the economic laws set out in the Bible by placing Americans into different groups and tax brackets instead of treating them as individuals. 

"God loves the individual," Bachmann said, "and He wants the individual to succeed, He wants the family to succeed. And when government stops looking at us as an individual with a name and now we become a number, in other words, we become a part of a group association, then what's dangerous about that is if our group association isn't pleasing to the current government power, you get whacked!"

After Barton cited a Supreme Court case striking down the income tax prior to the passage of the 16th Amendment, Bachmann warned that a progressive income tax is unbliblical because it encourages the government to tax the rich to benefit the poor, which makes people covet their neighbor's possessions in violation of the Tenth Commandment.

"Just look at any campaign commercial on TV," Bachmann said. "It's appealing to the lower interests of man and it appeals to the American people to violate the Tenth Commandment. We are told, don't covet; in other words, don't be jealous and don't want what your neighbor has. Your neighbor had to work for what he has and don't be jealous of your neighbor, get out and work yourself. Instead, politicians say, 'Oh no, no, your neighbor is rich because he stole it from you.' That's not true, it's a lie, and so does anyone benefit from that thinking? Absolutely not. The Bible is exactly right."

Tony Perkins: The Draft Is Coming Back, Thanks Obama

At last Saturday’s GOP presidential debate, several Republican candidates expressed openness to having women register with the Selective Service after the Army and Marine Corps chiefs said that the U.S. should make such a move, much to the dismay of the Religious Right.

Yesterday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins spoke with ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann, both of whom were stunned that Republican leaders would get behind the policy change, which they said would be disastrous for the military.

Perkins kicked things off by warning that “there is a very good likelihood that we could see the draft” in the near future because “the policies of this administration” have weakened the military and “made the world a very dangerous place.” (Back in 2010, Perkins said that “the president’s drive to repeal the ban on open homosexuality in the military” could “bring back the draft.”)

Bachmann said she was “shocked” by the candidates’ remarks in the debate, saying that “it’s crazy.”

“This is a radical idea,” she said. “It’s a darling of the left that’s been put forward actually for several decades but it is put forward, interestingly, by people who tend to be not fans of the military and it’s people who are on this wild tear to bring about the end of male-female. At the core of this argument really, Tony, is that gender doesn’t matter. We’ve seen it in the marriage debate, but we see it now in this combat readiness debate.”

Anti-Choice Group Vows To Put Spies In Every Abortion Clinic In The Country

As we noted last year, the Texas anti-abortion group Life Dynamics, whose founder Mark Crutcher was an important mentor to undercover Planned Parenthood activist David Daleiden, plans to start training “a whole army” of Daleidens in the arts of spying on abortion providers.

Crutcher joined Cleveland Right to Life’s Molly Smith on her “From the Median” radio program earlier this month to discuss his plans to “create intelligence gathering agents” to infiltrate abortion providers, with the goal of having 100 such agents by the end of the year and eventually one for every abortion clinic in the country.

“Right now the abortion industry only has to worry about basically two organizations infiltrating them,” Crutcher said, “and that’s Life Dynamics — us — and Lila Rose with Live Action.” (Crutcher, who pioneered the technique of sham undercover “investigations” of abortion providers, also trained Rose.)

“We know for a fact that we can put 100 trained people around the country by the end of this year,” he said, “and our eventual goal is to make sure there’s not an abortion clinic in this country that doesn’t have intelligence operatives surveilling it on a daily basis.”

Crutcher asserted that this 24/7 spying on every single abortion provider would easily turn up useful information because “I guarantee you, Molly, there’s not an abortion clinic in this country that’s not engaged in at least a few illegal activities, not one.”

“They go to bed every night knowing things that if we knew would destroy them,” he said.

In a protest outside the construction site for a new Planned Parenthood clinic last month, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life praised Crutcher’s work, telling the women’s health provider: “Be on your toes because we are in your midst, we are behind your doors, we are in your secret meetings, we are working for you and with you though you know it not, but in His good time the God who reveals all secrets will reveal that too.”

A major funder of Life Dynamics is Farris Wilks, who along with his brother have been generously backing Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. In 2011, Wilks’ foundation funded a Life Dynamics effort “to mass-mail DVDs to lawyers encouraging them to sue abortion clinics into oblivion.”

Pat Robertson: Bernie Sanders' Youth Supporters 'The Kids Who Want To Do A Panty Raid In The Fraternity'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson sat down with Stephen Moore, the former chief economist of the Heritage Foundation, to discuss the results of last night’s New Hampshire primaries, and particularly Bernie Sanders’ success in the Democratic contest.

After gloating that Hillary Clinton “is not going to be president” and commending Donald Trump’s “phenomenal,” “patriotic” and “pro-America” victory speech, Moore lit into Sanders and Clinton for proposing “big spending programs” and trying to “raise taxes on the middle class.”

Robertson, before repeating the myth that Sanders is seeking a 90 percent marginal tax rate, said he was confused as to why young voters overwhelmingly backed Sanders in New Hampshire. “Is that like the kids who want to do a panty raid in the fraternity?” he asked.

“It’s an indictment of our education system in America,” Moore said. “When these college graduates think that socialism is an economic model that works, I mean, show me anywhere in the world, Bernie Sanders, where socialism has worked.”

Heidi Cruz: Ted Running To 'Show This Country The Face Of The God That We Serve'

Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi, who has been campaigning for her husband full-time over the past several months, explained the role of faith in the Texas Republican’s presidential campaign yesterday, telling a South Carolina radio host that Cruz is running to “show this country the face of the God that we serve.”

Cruz’s father Rafael made a similar statement last month when he said that Ted, whom he has implied was chosen by God for the White House, was running for president to “share the love of Jesus Christ” with “every person in America.”

Heidi Cruz told South Carolina radio host Vince Coakley yesterday that even if she were not married to Ted, she’d be trying to work on his campaign because “this country is in crisis and this individual has an incredible talent to bring us out of this crisis.”

This is in a large part, she said, because “this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country” and people need to be reminded that “Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution.”

When I thought about doing it for our country, it became very clear to me that our family must be in this race. And it also became clear to me that we are at a cultural crossroads in our country and if we can be in this race to show this country the face of the God that we serve — this Christian God that we serve is the foundation of our country, our country was built on Judeo-Christian values, we are a nation of freedom of religion, but the God of Christianity is the God of freedom, of individual liberty, of choice and of consequence.

And I think that’s something that this country really needs to be reminded of, is that Christians are loving people, are nonjudgmental people, but there is right and wrong, we have a country of law and order, there are consequences to actions and we must all live peaceably in our own faiths under the Constitution. And Ted is uniquely able to deliver on that combination of the law and religion.

Ted Cruz To Campaign With Glenn Beck At Rick Joyner's Church

Last month, we noted that Ted Cruz attended a national security forum held at Rick Joyner's MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Joyner is a self-proclaimed prophet who frequently talks of his prophetic dreams about chaos and revolution descending upon America and resulting in martial law. He is the sort of right-wing Christian leader who issues warnings about how the devastating 2011 earthquake in Japan would push America into Nazism and declares that Hurricane Katrina was God's judgment for homosexuality. He's also the type to declare that gay marriage will usher in national destructiona second civil wardivine judgmenta ban on men and women marrying each other and even the Mark of the Beast.

But Joyner is not all doom and gloom, as he did once pray away the spread of the Asian Flu and even cooked a miraculous casserole that fed multitudes.

Later this week, Cruz will return to Joyner's church for a campaign event and this time he'll be in the company of another self-appointed prophet: Glenn Beck.
