Larry Pratt: Obama Only Nominates 'Ruthless' People Who Will Steal Elections For Democrats

Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt joined VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program on Tuesday to discuss the then upcoming vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be the U.S. attorney general, telling host Jim Schneider that President Obama nominated Lynch — who was confirmed by the Senate this afternoon — because she was “willing to be as ruthless as he.” 

“I’ll give President Obama one thing,” Pratt said. “In all the appointments he’s made that I’m aware of, unlike Republican presidents who have appointed people because they played golf with them, or because somebody said something nice about them among the elite, President Obama has only appointed, to my knowledge, people who are willing to be as ruthless as is he. That explains Eric Holder. That explains Loretta Lynch, who is an Obama appointee as U.S. attorney in New York.”

When Schneider noted with scorn that “Lynch views voter ID laws as being racist,” Pratt said that opposition to such voting restrictions is part of Obama’s “ruthless” attempt to steal elections for Democrats, which will eventually lead to the Republican Party dying out.

“If they have to deal with photo voter ID, they lose, because it makes it much more difficult to steal elections,” he said. “And in all too many cases, the Democrats have been able to win only because of election fraud. And that’s why they are so bitterly resisting photo voter ID. That is a very, very key issue. And when I hear Republicans saying that ‘well, you know, it’s kind of embarrassing for us to be continually opposing that,’ I guess they’re suggesting it makes us look racist, what they’re saying is, they’re okay with the demise of the Republican Party in about 10 years.”

 

Fischer: Legalizing Gay Marriage Will 'Turn The Bible Into Mein Kampf'

Bryan Fischer spent two segments on his radio program today reading from his latest column, in which he warns that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on gay marriage, Christians will be turned into pariahs and find their churches and ministries stripped of their tax exempt status and shut down.

But the first order of business, Fischer warned, would be to "turn the Bible into Mein Kampf" and prohibit it from being studied or read in schools or public places.

"Anyone who opposes the normalization of homosexuality will be treated as a racist," Fischer warned. "Anyone, from that day forward, in America who opposes the normalization of homosexuality, who opposes same-sex marriage, will be lumped together by the Supreme Court with the Nazis, with the KKK, with slave holders, and with Aryan supremacists. The Bible will be classified as hate speech from the beginning to the end and it won't be long before efforts are made to ban the Bible in public schools, to ban it in school libraries, to ban in it public libraries and to forbid the study of the Bible or the reading of the Bible on any campus in any public setting":

Fischer's warning makes no sense, of course, considering that the reading, study, and purchase of "Mein Kampf" is currently entire legal in this country.

Linda Harvey: Satan Tricking Supreme Court Into Backing Gay Marriage

On her daily “Mission America” radio bulletin today, Linda Harvey asked listeners to pray that the Supreme Court will rule against marriage equality advocates and that the justices will “not be swayed by the schemes of Satan to deceive, divide and destroy.”

But if Satan does get his way, Harvey said, people should be prepared to resist the “unconstitutional, unlawful decision” and protect the children who will be affected by the resulting “damage” of the ruling.

Harvey prayed that the Supreme Court marriage cases would ensure that the “eyes of America will open to the ungodliness of homosexuality and sexual sins of all kinds and we will turn from the elements in or culture that are driving this.”

Franklin Graham Furious That Marvel's Iceman Is Gay

Franklin Graham is outraged by the news that the character Iceman will come out as gay in a new issue of “X-men” issue. The Religious Right leader took to his Facebook page today to lament that Marvel is using Iceman in an attempt “to indoctrinate our young people to accept this destructive lifestyle.”

Graham has previously praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for criminalizing speech that is perceived as pro-gay propaganda” directed at young people.

Mike Huckabee Draws Connection Between Gay Marriage And ISIS Threat

In the same conference call today in which he claimed that gay marriage will outlaw religious freedom, Mike Huckabee suggested that the supposed threat to religious freedom posed by the gay rights movement is part of a broader attack on the rights of Christians, including anti-Christian violence.

When a pastor on the call, which was organized by the Family Research Council, asked Huckabee if the U.S. is facing a two-pronged threat of ISIS terrorist attacks and the “equally intense assault on marriage as defined by God,” Huckabee replied that the caller was “exactly right.”

“We’re seeing, certainly at the national level, internally this battle on marriage, but globally what we’re seeing is that there is an assault on the Christian faith in general,” Huckabee said, before warning that ISIS will soon “physically assault” Christians in America.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, who hosted the call, repeated his claim that gay rights efforts in the U.S. are linked to the murder of Christians by ISIS members in the Middle East.

“If we go silent on religious freedom here at home, I think that sends a message to the terrorists and the tyrants abroad that they are free to persecute our brothers and sisters in Christ,” Perkins said.

Huckabee said that Americans are closer than ever to losing their religious freedom because conservative Christians aren’t speaking out. “The other side is vocal and they sound like they are a lot more than they are but as a result they are winning battles that we should be winning,” he said.

Mike Huckabee Defends Ex-Gay Therapy, Warns Gay Rights Will Outlaw Christianity: 'God Help Us All'

In a conference call with conservative pastors today organized by the anti-gay Family Research Council, Mike Huckabee let loose with a litany of falsehoods about how marriage equality will lead to the “criminalization of Christianity” and demanded that states simply defy the Supreme Court if it strikes down bans on same-sex marriage.

“Christian convictions are under attack as never before,” Huckabee said in the call, which was meant to rally pastors to participate in the FRC’s upcoming “Stand for Marriage” event. “Not just in our lifetime, but ever before in the history of this great nation. We are moving rapidly towards the criminalization of Christianity.”

The former governor and likely GOP presidential candidate predicted that the government will bring “criminal charges” against those who oppose gay rights and pastors who preach against gay marriage. He even defended ex-gay therapy, claiming that the government is barring chaplains from telling those they counsel to “seek assistance” for a “homosexual lifestyle.”

Huckabee also blasted the “ruling class” and “donor class” for treating opponents of gay rights as “pariahs,” adding that “supposedly conservative donors and conservative office holders are running away from the issue.”

(Audio note: Because of apparent technical difficulties with the conference call, there are beeping noises throughout the call signifying participants dialing in.)

Huckabee told the pastors that no matter what politicians or the polls say about the legalization of gay marriage, God is against it and so they should stand strong against the “small minority pushing this agenda.”

Huckabee claimed that if same-sex marriage bans are struck down nationwide, any pastor who refuses to conduct a same-sex wedding would be breaking the law.

“If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to a pastor who believes in biblical marriage who says ‘I can’t perform that wedding’ will now be breaking the law,” he said. “It’s not just saying, ‘I’m sorry you have a preference.’ No, you will be breaking the law subject to civil for sure and possible criminal penalties for violating the law…. If you do practice biblical convictions and you carry them out and you do what you’ve been led by the spirit of God to do, your behavior will be criminal.”

This, of course, is a categorically untrue claim that has not materialized in any of the dozens of states where marriage equality has been adopted.

“God help us all,” he said.

Anti-Gay Activists Reduced To Hoping Future Generations Will Repeal Gay Marriage If America Survives That Long

James Dobson once again dedicated his daily radio program today to a discussion of the Supreme Court's upcoming gay marriage case with anti-gay activists Brian Brown, Maggie Gallagher, and Jim Garlow.

Unlike previous programs in which Religious Right leaders bemoaned the string of calamities that will befall this nation if gay marriage is legalized, today's show had a rather more hopeful feel, as Garlow and Gallagher took solace in the idea that gay marriage will prove to be so utterly horrible for the country that eventually the American people will realize the error of their ways and do away with it, provided that the nation actually survives long enough to do so.

"We, in this country, are learning to gear up for resistance and we are not giving up under any condition," Garlow said. "The devastation from this could come so severely that, years from now, if the nation is not completely destroyed, that we could see a recycling and a re-visiting of God's purpose for marriage."

Dobson was less enthusiastic, wondering just how much "damage will be done to how many people" in the interim.

"Horrific," Garlow said. "Horrific. But wars do that, unfortunately."

Garlow then went on to marvel that we are even having debates over issues like abortion and marriage, declaring that it is "shocking how far we've gone towards Nazi Germany and other kinds of dictatorships of this magnitude," which prompted Gallagher to weigh in and declare that Christians will win this battle in the end.

"I think it's going to get very bad out there," she said. "And I think, just as it did in the early days of the Roman Empire, that there is going to be a sense that, if we do our jobs, that Christianity offers the only real alternative to an increasingly debauched public square":

Larry Pratt Tells 'Sovereign Citizen' That Most Federal Laws Are Unconstitutional Anyway

Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt has a long history in the far-right fringes of the anti-government movement, so it is hardly a surprise that members of the radical “sovereign citizen” movement — who believe that they are not beholden to U.S. laws —are now courting his favor.

Pratt was a guest on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program on Tuesday when a listener called in identifying himself as a “sovereign” from Wisconsin and asked him, “I just wondered if somebody of your stature would stand up and scream from the rooftops that these 60 million codes and regulations don’t apply to us, only to U.S. citizens.”

While Pratt didn’t address the “sovereign citizen” movement directly, he told the caller that most federal laws are unconstitutional anyway and “should be stricken.”

“Well, I think you can make the same point with another argument, that the body of, the corpus of law and regulations you’re pointing to, almost none of it comes under the Constitution,” he said. “It gives powers to the federal government that were not given to the federal government in the Constitution. They should be stricken.”

This led the show’s host, Jim Eliason, to bring up the upcoming Supreme Court arguments about marriage equality, which Pratt agreed is “not something for the federal government or the federal judiciary to be sticking their nose into.”

“God bless Judge Roy Moore,” he added, praising the Alabama Supreme Court’s chief justice for defying a federal court ruling striking down the state’s marriage equality ban.

Senator Chaps? Gordon Klingenschmitt, Colorado's Premier Demon-Hunting Legislator, Announces Bid For State Senate

Just two days ago, Colorado's demon-hunting gay-exorcising state Rep. Gordon "Dr. Chaps" Klingenschmitt had his seat on House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee restored after having been stripped of it last month amid the controversy stemming from his statement that a brutal attack on a pregnant woman in the state was due to the "curse of God upon America" for legal abortion.

Klingenschmitt eventually apologized for his remarks, suspended his daily television program, played the victim by lashing out at the media, and then generally kept his head down in the ensuing weeks in an effort to simply wait out the controversy. And now that it seems to have passed, Klingenschmitt held a town hall meeting last night to triumphantly announce that he is now running for a seat in the state Senate:

What was billed as a town hall meeting turned into a half-hour tease for Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt's announcement that he plans to run for a state Senate seat.

Klingenschmitt, R-Colorado Springs, went through a list of his accomplishments in the state Legislature Wednesday at the Airplane Restaurant. He also discussed his attempts to "fight for Republican principles" that didn't make it through the Democrat-controlled House. He took a small handful of questions limited to constituents in House District 15, teasing his "plans for 2016" along the way, before announcing he plans to run for Senate District 12.

The seat is held by Senate President Bill Cadman, who will reach his term limit in 2016.

KRDO NewsChannel 13 captured video of Klingenschmitt's announcement:

Donald Trump: Obama Letting In Drug Lords To Help The Democratic Party

While speaking yesterday with conservative talk show host John Fredericks, Donald Trump said that Central and South American countries are sending immigrants “they don’t want” to America while “keeping their good.”

“The ones we are getting are the drug lords, we’re getting the gang members, and we’re getting some people that are fine, but we’re not getting the best and finest from South America, believe me,” Trump said. Trump accused President Obama of deliberately keeping the border unprotected because he wants to “build up the Democrat [sic] Party.”

He also went after Jeb Bush, whom he repeatedly referred to as “George Bush,” and Marco Rubio, for their stances on immigration. “All of them are weak, Rubio was very much in favor of letting them come, letting come and now all of the sudden he’s trying to toughen up,” Trump said. “They say he’s the new John F. Kennedy. Give me a break, this is not the new John F. Kennedy.”

Trump also went on a rant about Bowe Bergdahl, claiming that the U.S. “should send him back” and “drop him right in the middle of those characters and they will take care of him.” “In the old days you’d execute Berghdal, when this country was strong and powerful and meant something, you would execute Berghdal,” he added.
