Mat Staver Says Gay Marriage Is 'The Beginning Of The End Of Western Civilization'

Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver recently spoke at the American Decency Association's summer conference where he once again warned that America is on the verge of being completely destroyed, just as Pompeii was by Mount Vesuvius.

Staver is particularly alarmed by the spread of gay marriage, declaring that no matter how many laws are passed legalizing it or how many judges strike down laws banning it, the definition of marriage cannot ever be changed because it was established by God.

Changing the definition of marriage is like trying to do away with gravity, Staver said. "It doesn't matter how many opinions or how many votes you have for that, you can't change God's natural created order."

"We've never been in this situation before," he warned. "We will not be able to escape the coercive nature of this issue. It is cataclysmic in its change effect. It is, I believe, ultimately the beginning of the end of Western Civilization if we adopt this as a country":

Michele Bachmann Claims President Obama Wants To Use Unaccompanied Children For Medical Experiments

Rep. Michelle Bachmann has a new theory about the unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in Central America who have come in large numbers to the southern U.S. border: they are future victims of a liberal plot to use unwilling children for medical experiments.

It all starts with the case of Justina Pelletier, the teenage girl who was placed in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families because of a dispute between Boston Children's Hospital and her parents, who were backed by other doctors from Tufts Medical Center, over her medical diagnosis.

Last month, she was finally returned to her family and now Bachmann has introduced legislation called "Justina's Law" that would prohibit "federal funding for medical experimentation on a ward of the State."

The narrative created by Bachmann and others within the Religious Right about this case asserts that the Boston Children's Hospital had received a federal grant to study somatoform disorder which prompted doctors to diagnose Pelletier with that condition so that the state could take custody of her and then use her as a guinea pig in the hospital's medical experiments.

This entire narrative is based on a bizarre misreading of the hospital's policy for allowing Wards of the state to participate in medical research trials, which is actually designed to protect such wards. The fact that Wards of the state can participate in medical trials under certain conditions and within specific guidelines is being intentionally misrepresented by Bachmann and others on the Right to claim that foster children are being used for wild medical experiments funded by grants from the federal government without oversight or limits.

Appearing on "WallBuilders Live" today to promote her law, Bachmann tied the issue to the debate surrounding the treatment of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border, claiming that President Obama and the medical community want to bring tens of thousands of children from Central America into the United States so that they can be turned over to state governments and then used for medical experiments.

"Now President Obama is trying to bring all of those foreign nationals, those illegal aliens to the country and he has said that he will put them in the foster care system," Bachmann said. "That's more kids that you can see how - we can't imagine doing this, but if you have a hospital and they are going to get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a Ward of the state can't say 'no,' a little kid can't say 'no' if they're a Ward of the state; so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say 'no.' It's sick".

Dinesh D'Souza: Obama Should Be Grateful He Wasn't Born In A Hut In Kenya

In an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this morning, Dinesh D’Souza accused President Obama of having an antipathy towards the United States when he could be living in a “hut” in Kenya.

“Here’s the strange thing, you know Obama’s born in America, he’s the walking embodiment of American exceptionalism. If Obama had been born in Kenya like his brother George, he probably would be living in the hut next door in the Huruma slum of Nairobi. And yet even though America has given our president all of this privilege, all of this opportunity, he’s always deriding American exceptionalism,” D’Souza said.

He went on to explain that his movie will expose how “the vast progressive movement that is powerful not just in politics but in education, in media, in Hollywood” has been imposing upon the country a “distorted story of America, a story of American shame that I challenge and refute in this film.”

Later in the interview, Rios said she was “amazed” and “mystified” by the “plotting and scheming” of liberals, something that conservatives would never, ever take part in because they are good, honest Christians: “Christians primarily don’t plot like that. We trust God, so we open every day in prayer, we plan our lives — I’m not saying we’re disorganized, but we don’t scheme, we don’t manipulate in the same way. And I find myself wondering if we can ever overcome that kind of skill. They think this life is all there is, so if they don’t control and scheme and manipulate, that is what they think they have to do in this life, in the now.”

“Well, we do have truth on our side,” D’Souza insisted. “I do think that we have to fight better, smarter.”

Bryan Fischer: 'It Will Be Impeachment Or The End Of America'

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer is one conservative who doesn’t agree with John Boehner that impeaching president Obama would be a huge political mistake.

In a blog post today, Fischer writes that “dull of mind” Republicans who have rejected impeachmetn have “stupidly dropped the one weapon they could use to save America.”

“Now if the Republicans don’t want to save this country, they won’t attempt to impeach,” he writes. “If they do love this country, they will.”

“In the end, it will be impeachment or the ruin of America.”

America has a political problem: a renegade president, unbound by either Constitution or conscience.

America has a political problem. But it also has a political solution: impeachment.

In fact, it’s impeachment or nothing. In the end, Republicans will have absolutely no other alternative if they wish to keep this president from transforming this once great nation into a banana republic.

Lawsuits won’t work, because the president has already shown a cavalier disregard for the rule of law. Defunding won’t work, because the president has already shown a cavalier disregard for budgetary restraints of any kind.

In the end, it will be impeachment or the ruin of America.

Now if the Republicans don’t want to save this country, they won’t attempt to impeach. If they do love this country, they will. In the end, the equation will be as simple as that.

John Boehner, goaded by the Democrats, has unwisely taken impeachment off the table. The reality is that the Democrats are scared to death of impeachment - they know the public is growing increasingly disaffected with Obama - and thus tried to goad Republicans into prematurely surrendering its powers of action. The GOP has been outwitted again.

The outsmarted Republicans, too dull of mind to realize they have been gamed, have stupidly dropped the one weapon they could use to save America.

The Democrats are using guns in this fight, while convincing the Republicans to voluntarily disarm. America now lies defenseless before a marauder.

Sandy Rios Wants To Impeach Obama For Something That Bush Did

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association spent today criticizing the Obama administration for pushing the narrative that House Republicans may try to impeach President Obama, while at the same time insisting that Republicans should seriously consider impeaching the president.

Upset that Fox News host Andrea Tantaros came out against impeachment, Rios cited the release of a Guantanamo Bay detainee, Abu Sufian bin Qumu, who was later implicated in the 2012 Benghazi attack, as proof that Obama is guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Qumu, however was released in 2007, two years before Obama took office.

Bush released over 500 Guantanamo Bay detainees, with a thirty percent recidivism rate.

Rios lashed out at Republicans who want to dismiss the impeachment question, comparing it to the birther issue and arguing that they are treating impeachment advocates like they have cooties: “The so-called mainstream Republicans are bending over backwards to vilify conservatives, it’s almost like the birther incident, it’s like people who are now discussing impeachment and whether the president has committed those crimes, now they are going to have cooties, we will have to think of a word for people who say that, ‘impeachables,’ I’m not sure what you call people like me who actually think it should be seriously discussed.”

Rep. Steve Stockman: GOP Wants To Arrest Lois Lerner Because She's 'A Word That Rhymes With Witch'

Rep. Steve Stockman is beginning to think that his plan to impeach President Obama might be bad politics, so is now moving on to the brilliant plan of arresting former IRS official Lois Lerner for being what he calls “a word that rhymes with witch.”

In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, the Texas Republican said that while he still thinks President Obama has “done impeachable offenses,” he now sees that the president is “trying to use people like myself” to start impeachment proceedings that would reflect poorly on Republicans.

So, Stockman said, he’s focusing his efforts before the summer recess on pushing a House vote to arrest Lerner, a move which he may be able to take without the approval of GOP leadership.

When Malzberg asked him whether he thinks his arrest motion would garner the support of his fellow Republicans, Stockman replied, “Well, they said some things about jail and a word that rhymes with witch sometimes to me.”

He went on to criticize Lerner for being “insolent,” “in no way compliant,” and having “total disrespect for Congress.”

Louie Gohmert Confuses Black Conservatives E.W. Jackson And Harry Jackson

Last week’s National Emergency Coalition conference call got off to an awkward start when Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, confused the call’s host, E.W. Jackson, with another black conservative activist, Harry Jackson.

Both Harry Jackson and E.W. Jackson are leading African American Religious Right activists who have campaigned for anti-gay, anti-choice causes. Gohmert expressed his sympathy for their plight at the beginning of the call, telling E.W. Jackson (who he thought was Harry Jackson) that there is “nobody in all of the United States more persecuted than a black man who is a conservative, and especially if he is a Christian.”

“You, Bishop, are an amazing man, I hope your health is doing okay, to the people on the call, I hope you will be praying for Bishop Harry Jackson, he is an incredible—”

“It’s E.W., congressman. Harry’s a good friend though,” the other Jackson replied.

“Oh I’m sorry, but anyway, just appreciate you so very much.”

Americans United For Life Takes Credit For One-Third Of New Anti-Choice Laws

Americans United for Life — which acts as sort of the ALEC of the anti-choice movement — sent an email to supporters today taking credit for a full one-third of the spate of state-level restrictions on abortion access that have been passed around the country since 2010.

AUL President Charmaine Yoest writes:

I just received a greatly encouraging report for our Americans United for Life (AUL) legal experts. As you may know, there has been a surge in pro-life laws since 2010. Our legal experts tell me that one third of these laws were enacted as a result of AUL’s legislative work—work we were able to do thanks to you!

Can you believe that? One Third! This equates to 74 life-affirming laws we were able to enact because of you.

You know as well as I do that we don’t have nearly the budget, staff or resources of the multi-billion dollar Big Abortion Industry. But Big Abortion is running scared. And they should be. At AUL, we have the best strategy, the best legal minds, and the truth on our side! We are already seeing the life-saving results.

Rest assured, we will win this country back for Life… and we are winning even now…but we need your help today to keep advancing.

The Guttmacher Institute reported in January that more state-level abortion restrictions were enacted in 2011-2013 than in the entire previous decade. This is in a large part due to the incredible success of the anti-choice movement’s incremental approach to pushing restrictions that it claims protect women’s health, but which are in fact meant to close abortion providers and cut off access.

AUL has been at the center of this effort, offering “model legislation” to legislators, much of it aimed at slowly chipping away at abortion access.

Louie Gohmert Claims Central American Youth Are Lying About Violence

During a conference call last week hosted by GOP politician E.W. Jackson, Rep. Louie Gohmert dismissed concerns that young migrants are fleeing Central America due to drug violence, claiming that the children aren’t telling the truth.

“Texas and the United States is [sic] being invaded and we’re in danger,” Gohmert said, before alleging that most of the unaccompanied minors are lying when they tell border patrol agents that they are escaping gang violence in Central America and have been coached to make such claims. Gohmert said minors end up telling officers that “we were told to say that we were fleeing gang violence.”

The congressmen went on to say that “the penetration of criminals and terrorists across our southern border” represents a threat to the U.S. comparable to the threat of a nuclear strike from Iran against Israel.

He likened the immigrant “invasion” to D-Day, warning that undocumented immigrants were responsible for over six hundred thousand crimes in Texas over the past five years, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.

Gohmert called President Obama’s immigration policy the real “war on women” because it allowed immigrants to cross the border to rape women.

Rick Santorum Angry That Marriage Equality Supporters 'Devalued' Marriage

While speaking over the weekend on “Eagle Forum Live,” Rick Santorum said that conservatives need to “reclaim” marriage from the left and “the folks who are trying to change the marriage laws to allow same-sex couples.”

The former senator and presidential candidate told host Anne Cori, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly’s daughter, that supporters of marriage equality have “devalued marriage” and “divorced marriage from any meaning beyond a romantic relationship,” while Cori lamented the “celebration of single mothers.”

He also warned of polygamy: “If marriage is simply a romantic relationship between two people, and by the way, that’s what it’s devolved to the minds of a lot of Americans, if that’s all that marriage is well then it’s hard to make the argument that any two people or any three or four people shouldn’t be able to get married.”
