Bachmann: End Times Are Here, Thanks Obama

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann suggested in an interview this weekend that President Obama’s “anti-Israel” and “pro-the goals of Islamic jihad” policies have brought the world into the biblical End Times. 

Bachmann made the comments in an interview with radical talk show host Jan Markell in which she also warned that God is about to punish the U.S. due to President Obama’s foreign policy.

Insisting that Obama lied about disputed reports that Iran’s supreme leader issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons, Bachmann said that “our president is as ignorant of Islamic scripture as he is of Islamic history, or he is trying to intentionally lie to the American people.”

“He constantly talks about perverting Islam,” she said, “but we have literally centuries and centuries of theory and practice of the Koran and the Hadith, which are traditions, the works of Islamic jurisprudence, that say one complete, consistent truth and that’s that they want to have a nuclear weapon,” Bachmann said (apparently forgetting that nuclear weapons have been in existence for less than one century).

“There is no fatwa out there,” she added. “This is a lie, in my opinion, that the president is perpetrating. But that’s what we’ve seen, a doctrine of deception. From the time Barack Obama has come in, I have witnessed firsthand a doctrine of deception.”

However, Bachmann saw a silver lining in all of this in that now the End Times are upon us: “The good news that I want to transition to is that, remember the prophets said in the Old Testament, they longed to look into the days that we live in, they long to be a part of these days. That’s why these are not fearful times, these are the most exciting days in history.”

“Every single day we can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent,” Bachmann continued. “We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus. So do we despair? The despairing is that we see that our world is not going the way of salvation and the way of blessing, the world is embracing degeneracy.”

Bachmann told Markell that just as some Muslim leaders are pulling for the Apocalypse, Christian pastors must also preach about “God’s time clock.”

Gohmert: 'Christians Are The Only Group In America That It Is Politically Correct To Abuse And Misuse'

Rep. Louie Gohmert was a guest on the "Point Of View" radio program on Friday where he and host Penna Dexter discussed a recent column in the New York Times noting that Christian positions on issues such as slavery and gender roles have changed dramatically over the centuries and advocating that a similar ideological shift must take place on the issue of gay marriage.

The Texas congressman, of course, was not persuaded, declaring that the Scripture is clear that homosexuality is a sin and today, Christians who stand by the position are being "abused and misused."

America was founded by Christians who were seeking to escape persecution, Gohmert said, "and ended up with giving us the freest nation, until more recently, as people try to take our freedoms away."

"They came to avoid persecution for being Christians," he said. "Look where we are today. Now it is really Christians are the only group in America that it is politically correct to abuse and misuse":

Bachmann: God Punishing US With 'Economic Disasters, Natural Disasters' Due To Obama Presidency

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on the End Times broadcast “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she claimed that America is facing the wrath of God in the form of natural disasters” because of President Obama’s Mideast policy. Later in the program, Bachmann said that Obama has thrown the world into the End Times.

Warning that Obama “embraces the ideas of an economic Marxist” and “a one-world-government point of view,” she said the president is deliberately weakening the country. Even worse, Bachmann claimed, Obama “in effect declared war on Israel from the United States” and is paving the way for divine “cursing” of America.

“If the United States turns its back on Israel, as our president is doing today, in my opinion, we cannot continue to indulge in the fantasy that the United States will be free from receiving the negative blowback, or curses, in biblical parlance, that could come our way and they could be severe,” Bachmann said.

After Markell pointed to economic troubles, the California drought and “unprecedented snowstorms on the East Coast” as signs of such divide punishment, Bachmann told her that such occurrences “are only the threshold or down payment.”

“If we actually turn our back on Israel, as we are seeing Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of pushback in the United States, negative consequences. I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true and I believe that what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind,” Bachmann said. “We could see economic disasters, natural disasters. The United States does not want to be in that position and unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama, not only once but twice, and the people have to rise up against his actions and demand their leaders take steps accordingly.”

In previous interviews with Markell, Bachmann has claimed that Obama is a supporter of Al Qaeda who wants to impose Sharia law and restore the Caliphate.

William Owens: 'Cult-Like' LGBT Rights Movement 'Intends To Brainwash' Us

Conservative groups are once again gearing up their annual campaign to convince parents to pull their children from school on the Day of Silence, an anti-bullying event sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

In an interview with Breitbart News published over the weekend, Rev. William Owens of the National Organization for Marriage-affiliated Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) warned that the Day of Silence is part of an effort by the “cult-like” LGBT rights movement “to brainwash Americans into believing that homosexuality is alright.”

“Until we the people join together on the Day of Silence and oppose it,” he warned, “those who support the LGBT political agenda will know they own our youth.”

Supporters of the DOS Walkout include the American Family Association, Concerned Women of America, Faith, Family & Freedom Alliance, Liberty Counsel, and the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP).

In an interview with Breitbart News, Rev. Bill Owens, president of CAAP, said, “What we would like to say is, instead, this will be a day of silent prayer.”

“The homosexual agenda intends to brainwash Americans into believing that homosexuality is alright, but it has become cult-like,” he said. “Let’s make it a day of silent prayer to promote Christianity and faith in general. What’s the difference”

“Those of us who have our faith should be as vocal as those promoting the LGBT agenda – and they are using the same techniques as the Civil Rights Movement,” Owens added. “In fact, they have hijacked the Civil Rights Movement – a movement they know nothing about.”

“But this is yet another nail in the coffin of ‘we the people’ if we fail to act,” he continued. “Until we the people join together on the Day of Silence and oppose it, those who support the LGBT political agenda will know they own our youth.”

Herman Cain's Website: Demon-Possessed Gays Need Exorcisms

Dan Calabrese, the editor-in-chief of Herman Cain’s website CainTV, warned last week that President Obama will keep gay people “in a state of demonic oppression” since he backs efforts to curtail the practice of conversion therapy on minors.

Warning that homosexuality is “demonic” and that a gay person is in need of “a deliverance minister [who] can help him to get rid of the evil spirit,” Calabrese claimed that “it is not Obama’s place to try to keep them in spiritual bondage.”

“Any who supports a bill like this is saying that families who want help for a person oppressed by homosexuality should not be allowed to seek it,” he wrote, claiming that Obama’s stance on conversion therapy is one more clue that the president is a phony Christian.

Since the Bible says homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God, and yet many people obviously feel homosexual urges, how do you square the two facts? You square them in the same way you explain any person's desire for sin. The person who craves heroin, or alcohol, or unhealthy quantities of food, or to hurt other people - these are all desires of the flesh that are in opposition to God's will for your life. The driving force behind all sin is spiritual - and yes, Right Wing Watch, I mean demonic - and the cure for it is deliverance by the authority of Jesus Christ.

How does that work? It has to start with the person wanting to be delivered. A deliverance minister can take authority over a demon in the name of Jesus, but if the person who is oppressed by the demon wants to remain in that state, then no deliverance minister can stop the demon from coming right back. (Luke 11:24-26) If a homosexual person wants to be free from this desire of the flesh because he knows it puts him in opposition to God, he can be free of it through repentance and surrender to Christ, and a deliverance minister can help him to get rid of the evil spirit.

If Obama has his way, a deliverance minister trying to free people from evil spirits would be forbidden by law from doing so. A person in a state of demonic oppression could not be helped because the official position of the United States government is that this state of demonic oppression is a good way to be, and no one should try to change it.

I don't think Obama understands it this way. I don't think he believes in any spiritual world whatsoever, nor do the people who will portray a commentary like this as odd, weird, crazy, etc. When you're not intelligent or curious enough to understand something, you mock the whole idea of it. Any who supports a bill like this is saying that families who want help for a person oppressed by homosexuality should not be allowed to seek it.

That is not their decision. I don't think any homosexual should be forced into therapy, ministry or anything else - especially since I know it won't help them if they're not willing. But if they want to be free, it is not Obama's place to try to keep them in spiritual bondage. The fact that he doesn't even understands that notion really gives the lie to his claim of being a Christian.

Rafael Cruz Continues To Blame Church-State Separation For Violent Crime, Teen Pregnancy

In an interview with Iowa-based conservative radio host Steve Deace on Friday, Rafael Cruz, father of Sen. Ted Cruz, repeated his frequent assertion that Supreme Court rulings limiting government-sponsored prayer in schools led to spikes in violent crime and teen pregnancy, claiming that until then, the “Bible was the principal textbook in all schools all the way to universities.”

Cruz, who spent the first half of the interview telling Deace that his son is the presidential candidate who most loves America, discussed his work travelling the country to convince conservative pastors to become more involved in politics.

“The church is actually more responsible to the place where America is today than anybody else,” he said. “Because if we go back to 1962 and 1963, two abominable decisions of the Supreme Court. 1962, prayer was taken out of schools; 1963, Bible teaching was taken out of schools. You know, for generations kids prayed in school before starting the day. The Bible was the principal textbook in all schools all the way to universities.”

The “church remained silent” in the face of those Supreme Court decisions, he said. “The consequence of that, we can see it in the statistics. Teen pregnancy skyrocketed after 1963 and so did violent crime, all as a result of taking Bible-reading and prayer out of schools.”

Cruz, as usual, did not mention that rates of violent crime and teen pregnancy have actually been plummeting in recent years, without the imposition of government-mandated religious education.

Cruz also went back to one of his favorite Bible verses, Proverbs 29:2, which he quotes as, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, people mourn.”

“Well, when the righteous, the people of principle, the people of faith, the people that have a moral compass are ruling, we see progress, we see happiness, we see moving forward,” he said. “When we have people that don’t believe any of the fundamental principles that have made America great, we see chaos. But what has happened is this, if the people of principle say ‘politics is their business, I don’t want any part of it,’ then what’s left? The wicked electing the wicked.”

Calling the idea that churches should stay out of politics a “lie,” he warned, “Politics legislates morality all the time. The problem is if we have the wicked ruling, they are going to legislate their wicked brand of morality.”

Pat Robertson: Hillary Clinton Taking Us 'Back To The 50s'

Pat Robertson kicked off "The 700 Club" today by likening Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announcement to the movie “Back to the Future,” adding that, this time, it is a case of going "back to the past."

"Are we going back to the '50s, is that where we want to be?" Robertson asked, without a hint of irony. "Or in the '70s? Well it looks like one of the candidates wants to take us back to the future."

David Barton Once Again Claims That The Bible Says There Will Never Be An AIDS Vaccine

Last month, we posted a clip of David Barton asserting that God will never allow scientists to find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS because such a vaccine would eliminate the divine "penalty" for homosexuality, which would contradict the teaching found in Romans 1.

As "evidence" of this position, the Religious Right psuedo-historian and GOP activist claimed that the virus that causes AIDS is constantly mutating, making it impossible to inoculate against. He pointed to news stories about various failures by researchers to successfully test an experimental vaccine as "proof" of his assertion.

As Warren Throckmorton reported at the time, the stories that Barton cited were utterly unrelated and did not prove his point at all:

In the video, Barton first showed the Popular Science headline and then said:

The headlines came out and said, for the first time ever an HIV vaccine shows success in trial. Oh my gosh, I guess there is, I guess I must have misinterpreted the Bible, cause the Bible’s true, and then six weeks later, they came out with this that says, NIH halts trial of HIV vaccine after it fails to work. The newspaper said it worked but none of the medical evidence said that it worked. So they still don’t have a cure.

The problem with Barton’s presentation is that the second headline didn’t come out “six weeks later.” Rather it came out four years later in 2013 and was about an entirely different attempt to create a vaccine.

The Yahoo News article Barton referred to (the second headline) is only available via Internet Archives and is dated April 26, 2013. The Yahoo article linked to the NIH announcement that the HVTN 505 clinical trial had been halted. The HVTN 505 trial results had nothing to do with the earlier success of RV 144. The RV 144 trial was reported in 2009, the same year that the HVTN 505 started. The NIH has more on the HVTN 505 trial on the NIH website.

Barton got the time frame wrong and made it appear that the two headlines were related to each other.

Barton's claim was entirely false but he continues to repeat it nonetheless, as Throckmorton discovered when Barton spoke at Faith Baptist Church in Knightdale, North Carolina this weekend:

Cliff Kincaid: Gays And Obama Are 'Making A Raw Power Grab For Our Kids'

Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaid is incensed about President Obama’s recent statement that he supports efforts to bar the practice of sexual orientation and gender identity conversion therapy on minors, writing today in BarbWire that “we are now seeing Obama and the progressives, including the homosexual movement, making a raw power grab for our kids.”

Arguing that measures to limit the pseudo-scientific practice will help “weaken the United States,” Kincaid writes that “a form of ‘conversion therapy’ will be retained, but used on those who resist the homosexual movement’s demands for our children.”

Kincaid explains that “Obama doesn’t seem concerned” about the “consequences of their immoral behavior” since “he was a heavy dope smoker.”

From Obama’s perspective, these parents stand in the way of creating an army of “LGBT” young people who will forever be grateful to the President for standing up for their “rights.” Like the dope smokers in Colorado, participating in what Obama calls an “experiment,” these young people constitute another Democratic Party constituency. Obama doesn’t seem concerned, however, about the consequences of their immoral behavior. After all, he was a heavy dope smoker and look what happened to him and where he ended up.



In other words, a form of “conversion therapy” will be retained, but used on those who resist the homosexual movement’s demands for our children. Believers in the old-fashioned values of one man and one woman marriage will be “re-educated,” or else.



Not only are the rights to freedom of the press and religion now at risk, parental rights are also in jeopardy. We are now seeing Obama and the progressives, including the homosexual movement, making a raw power grab for our kids. The parents are being labeled as the lunatics.

Yet while the Obama administration opposes counseling for young people who may want to change their sexual feelings from homosexual to heterosexual, they have no problem paying for traitor Bradley Manning to physically “change” from being a “he” to a “she.” It is reported that the Army has agreed to pay for hormone treatments, makeup, and female underwear for Manning, who is serving a 35-year sentence for espionage and other charges, so he can become “Chelsea.”

Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America is getting downright weird. It appears to be a one-way street away from our Judeo-Christian values. Like so many other policies pursued by this President, it’s difficult to see how this one can do anything but weaken the United States.

Donald Trump: Obama Is 'Not A Good Person' Because He Says 'ISIL'

Donald Trump is furious that President Obama refers to the so-called Islamic State as “ISIL,” or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The last word in the group’s acronym, “al-Sham,” is roughly translated as Greater Syria, or the Levant, as Pamela Geller — the anti-Muslim blogger who used “ISIL” until Obama used the same acronym and then decided it was somehow a bad thing — helpfully explains in this map.

“The only one that says ‘ISIL’ is Obama,” Trump said. “Hes the only one. He talks about ‘ISIL,’ everyone else says ‘ISIS.’ He’s got a little reason because there’s a little part of the region — but he’s the only one. Just not a good person and perhaps — go ahead, you can hear it, if you believe it. I don’t know if he has the interest of the country, he probably does, but as I said, I think the whole group, led by the leader, led by the leader, is grossly, grossly, incompetent, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

This led Trump into a tirade about China “taking our jobs” and immigration, claiming that Mexico is “sending everybody right through the border and we’re taking pictures and watching them.”

“Everybody is coming in illegally, millions of people coming in illegally, we’ve got to stop it at the border and we have to stop it fast,” he said.
