AFA's Fischer: We're Done Supporting Your Bastard Children!

You'll notice that if you read that American Family Association's mission statement, it doesn't say anything about actually helping families in need or showing compassion. 

And there is a good reason for that, because as the AFA's Bryan Fischer explains, America is no longer willing to "subsidize immorality" or help to take care of the "bastard children" of those who conceive children out of wedlock:

The rate at which bastard children were born in 1963, when Lyndon Johnson launched the war on poverty, was seven percent. Meanwhile, we continue to maintain actual marriage penalties in our tax code, including the newly hatched monstrosity of health care reform. So we subsidize illegitimacy and penalize marriage, and we wonder why things get worse rather than better.

And President Obama intends to zero out the one budget item devoted to strengthening marriage in low-income communities.

The place to begin? By reforming state and federal budgets so that we no longer subsidize immorality. It's time to communicate in policy and not just in words that in America, we expect you to save sex for marriage, to have children only within the marriage relationship, and that we will no longer force American taxpayers to fund the expenses of children they did not conceive and with whom they have no relationship and for whom they have no responsibility.

If you conceive children out of wedlock, we will expect you and your families to find a way to take care of the expenses involved in raising that child. In America, that child is your responsibility and no one else's. You may look for help to charities funded by private, voluntary, compassion-driven donations, but you may not look to government to force other Americans at gunpoint to take money out of their wallets and fork it over to you. We are no longer going to treat you as helpless little children; we are going to treat you as the responsible adults you can become. It's time to grow up.

Perkins: Obama Has Been Our "Worst Nightmare" And a "Threat to America"

On the lastest episode of "The Brody File," the half-hour program featuring CNB's David Brody, Tony Perkins voiced his displeasure with Michael Steele and Bart Stupak, as well as his belief that President Obama is a "threat to America."

That statement came about after Brody asked Perkins if the Obama administration has turned out to be as bad as he expected.  Beginning at the 5:00 mark, Perkins claims that while he was never a fan of Obama's, he was "not hostile" to the administration initially ... but:

My worst nightmare has come to reality and more, in this administration. I was indifferent, going about our business, continuing to work on policy.  This administration, in my view, is a threat to America. What we see coming out of this administration, [not only] the hostility to traditional values, but the outright ignoring of the law.  We can have the theoretical debate over the Constitution when it came to the pushing of health care and the authority of the federal government, but even when it comes down to the Census, which we saw this week the Commerce Department basically telling homosexual couples out there to ignore federal law, to lie and put on your Census form that you're married if you feel like you're married. That's a violation of the 1996 Federal Defense of Marriage Act. What kind of government tells its people to lie on official forms?

Kincaid: Obama's Morals Shaped By "Communist Sex Pervert"

In addition to serving as Editor of Accuracy in Media's "AIM Report," where he's been spending a lot of his time lately defending Uganda's "kill the gays" bill, Cliff Kincaid is also President of America's Survival, which is right-wing conspiracy theory website dedicated to exposing UN/ICC/Communist/New World Order plots to take over the world ... and important stories like the fact that the FBI is engaged in a cover-up of the President Obama's deeply Marxist ideology by destroying evidence that his maternal grandfather handed him over "to a communist sex pervert for moral guidance"

The FBI destroyed a file on Barack Obama's grandfather, the man who selected Communist Frank Marshall Davis to be the future president's mentor during his growing-up years in Hawaii.

"The FBI confirms that a file was maintained on Obama's grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham," states Cliff Kincaid, the journalist who runs the public policy group, America's Survival, Inc. (ASI). "This is a troubling development in the effort to understand the Marxism that drives Obama's policies as president today."

In correspondence with Kincaid, available at www.usasurvival.org, the FBI says the file was destroyed in 1997. The FBI made the admission after Kincaid complied with a request to verify the identity of Dunham and the fact that he was deceased.

Dubbed "Gramps" by Obama, Dunham has been depicted in news reports as a patriot who served in the U.S. Army in World War II. But he had a close relationship with Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii, who reportedly drank and smoke pot with Dunham.

Davis was not only a communist but a pornographer who wrote a semi-biographical novel about having sex with a 13-year-old girl. He mentored Obama for as many as nine years of his young life in Hawaii.

Dunham, who was white, had picked Davis as a mentor for Obama because he thought the youngster, whose father had abandoned the family, needed a black role model. Davis, who was black, fit the bill. "It was a terrible decision," Kincaid commented. "He turned over the young Obama to a communist sex pervert for moral guidance."

AFA's Fischer: Muslim Citizens Are Traitors and Must Be Expelled

Last week, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer followed-up his call from last year to purge all Muslims from the US military with a call to purge all Muslims from the United States in general.

Today, Fischer has returned to defend his call for all Muslims in the United States to be deported immediately by claiming that every Muslim has a "solemn, sacred obligation to kill as many of their hosts as possible" and it is therefore "a form of suicidal insanity" to allow them to stay in the US .

Fischer admits that while not every single Muslim is out to destroy the US, since we can't know which ones are ahead of time, it only makes sense to view "every new Muslim immigrant [as a] potential threat to the safety and security of the United States" and to treat all Muslims citizens as traitors: 

Bottom line: every Muslim who enters the United States carries within his bosom the seeds of sedition. It is dangerously foolish for the United States to invite folks inside our borders whose god orders them, through his holy prophet, to murder American infidels. According to the latest Easter polling data, infidels comprise about 80 percent of our population, the 80 percent who believe that Jesus is the Son of God, came to earth to die for our sins, and rose from the grave. Each of these beliefs is regarded in Islam as a heresy which ultimately merits the death penalty.

And if the government won't impose this death penalty on the infidels, the Muslims themselves will be happy to impose it on their own initiative, as 9/11 and Fort Hood amply illustrate.

If we separate ourselves for a moment from the rampant and mindless political correctness and multiculturalism which controls the thinking of the elites, and the ordinary Americans who allow the elite to do their thinking for them, it is obviously and plainly nuts to throw out the welcome mat to those who have a religious obligation to obliterate us. It is beyond comprehension that we have become so brain-addled that we regard it a positive virtue to blindly embrace our own destroyers.

Muslims who have become naturalized citizens, of course, would need to commit an act of treason to forfeit their citizenship and become eligible for repatriation. Based on the Constitution's definition of treason in Article III Section 3 ["adhering to (the) Enemies (of the United States), (or) giving them Aid and Comfort"] treasonous acts are likely committed on virtually a weekly basis here in the U.S. in many mosques and Islamic organizations.

Fischer concludes that the goal of every Muslim is to "establish a virtual Islamic homeland in our midst" and that instead of spending money on eventually incarcerating them, we should use that money to deport them:

Is this xenophobia? Nope, just common sense and a love of the United States and its exceptionalism. In fact, what we must protect ourselves from are Amerophobes, those who hate us because of who we are and what we believe. It's time for a wake-up call.

Fighting For Their Right To Discriminate

A few weeks ago we noted that an organization called NotMyBathroom.com was formed in Missoula, Montana in order to oppose a proposed city ordinance that would protect people from discrimination in their jobs and homes based on "actual or perceived ... sexual orientation, gender identity or expression."

The organization is associated with Concerned Women for America and the focus of its campaign is on the claim that the ordinance will make it legal for men to use women's restrooms, thereby leading to assaults on women and children.

While the group's effort is obviously aimed at stirring up fear in order to defeat the measure, CWA's Wendy Long admits that they have absolutely no evidence that anti-discrimination ordinances lead to such assaults and that their real mission is to fight the anti-discrimination out of fear that it'll eventually lead to marriage equality:

Even one of the most staunch opponents of those laws can't point to increases in frivolous lawsuits or sexual predation. Still, Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright said such ordinances lead the country down the wrong track.

"We have a constitutional protection for religious freedom in our First Amendment," Wright said. "There is not a constitutional protection for sexual orientation, and yet judges and city councils and others are acting as if sexual orientation trumps religious freedom."

The Concerned Women aim to bring biblical principles to public policy, and the Montana office opposes the Missoula ordinance. It's one member of Notmybathroom.com, a group that formed to defeat the local ordinance in large part because of fear sexual offenders will prey on women and children in bathrooms and locker rooms.

Wright couldn't point to places that have counted increases in sexual offenses because of such laws, but she said such data is beside the point.

"It doesn't go back to numbers," Wright said. "It goes back to the issue that people will have legal rights that will trump other people's rights. The right of a woman or a girl to feel safe in a fitting room, a locker, a restroom, their rights will be trumped by a person who is claiming their sexual orientation right has legal protection."

She noted as troubling a couple of specific examples where transgender women fought for access to dressing rooms. In one Philadelphia case in 2008, a woman denied access to a fitting room planned to file a complaint against the department store, whose manager agreed to train employees to grant equal access.

Wright said one big reason Concerned Women opposes such laws is because the group does not want local ordinances to be used as stepping stones toward making gay marriage legal and teaching it in the public schools.

In essence, the less society tolerates discrimination against gays, the more likely gay marriage becomes ... and so groups like CWA must fight to protect the right to discriminate.

Ralph Reed: Will Life Imitate My New Novel?

Ralph Reed weighs in on the news that Justice John Paul Stevens is stepping down from the Supreme Court to declare that it will help Republicans (because, in Reed's world, everything is always awesome from Republicans) ... but mostly it's an opportunity to peddle his forthcoming "political thriller":

Stevens made clear in earlier interviews with the Washington Post and the New York Times he would retire while Barack Obama was president. Today’s announcement ups the ante: he is purposely quitting while Democrats still have a 59-seat majority in the U.S. Senate, thereby hoping to make the confirmation of a dedicated liberal nominee smoother.

Stevens may have been too cute by half. It is a safe assumption that Obama will tack left on this nominee to energize his base and maximize the value of the vacancy. And by dropping the battle over choosing his successor before the November elections—while Democrats are on defense and Barack Obama’s job approval rating has plummeted to 44 percent in the most recent CBS News poll—Stevens may have assured this vacancy further energizes conservatives at the grassroots to elect a Republican Congress.

The political ramifications of a Supreme Court pick can be epochal and this battle will be hard-fought. Think Robert Bork, or Health Care 2.0. I recently turned in the manuscript of my next political thriller, which is entitled “The Confirmation,” scheduled for publication in August. The book recounts the most brutal, no-holds-barred confirmation battle of a Supreme Court Justice in U.S. history. Will life imitate fiction? I suspect it just might.

His book even has it's own trailer:

How exciting!

Star Parker Is Running For Congress

In her latest column, Star Parker announced that she is running for Congress in order to fight this nation's slide into socialism:

I’ve often been approached to run for public office. However, I always deferred because I felt I could make the greatest difference delivering my message as a free agent, outside the formal structure of politics.

But things have changed and now I’ve decided to run.

We’ve totally reversed the direction we started in after we reformed welfare in 1996.

As I wrote a little over a year ago: “I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of poor black communities and replacing it with wealth producing American capitalism. But, incredibly, we are going in the opposite direction. Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich America on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming like poor America on socialism.”

And this does not appear to be a mere vanity run aimed solely at raising Parker's profile, but a serious attempt to run a full-fledged campaign:

[T]he question today before us: are we going to be a free nation under God? Or are we going to be a welfare state?

For twenty-five years I have carried the message of freedom, and my life's story embodies the greatness of America: that as long as there is a rule of law and protection of private property, any one from any background or any ethnicity or just in need of a fresh start and new birth can live free and prosper.

This is why I'm running.

I hope you will support me in this bid to the US House of Representatives for the 37th California Congressional district in Los Angeles County which includes Compton, Carson, Signal Hill and Long Beach.

I would love the opportunity to share my ideas inside the Congressional Black Caucus to help turn these neighborhoods as well as this nation towards our founding principles of traditional values, limited government, free markets, and a strong national defense.

I wonder if she'll make the claims that marriage equality leads to the spread of HIV and that it should "concern every American as we watch our nation's capital city transform officially into Sodom" a part of her campaign ... or if she'll just focus on her standard craziness:
