Mat Staver Calls For Obama's Impeachment Over Anti-Discrimination Executive Order

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver called for President Obama to be impeached for having recently signed an executive order banning companies that receive federal contracts from discriminating against employees based on sexual orientation and gender identity, saying that Obama is a dictator who thinks that he is above the law.

"He is literally taking upon himself powers that are not conferred to the president of the United States," Staver declared. "The president can't, through executive order, just bypass Congress and that's what he's doing. This is reprehensible. This is a dictatorship. This is a fiefdom that he is doing and he needs to be stopped. He needs to literally be impeached ... He just simply thinks he is a king and the Constitution is a pesky document. This is a man that needs to be impeached. He does not deserve to be the president of the United States of America":

Robert Jeffress Warns Obama's Anti-Discrimination Order Paves The Way For Stripping Churches Of Tax Exemption

Robert Jeffress appeared on the American Family Association's "Today's Issues" radio program earlier this week where he warned that the executive order signed by President Obama prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating against gay employees was paving the way for the government to start stripping tax exemptions and broadcasting rights from churches and religious groups.

"My problem with that order," Jeffress told show host Tim Wildmon, "is that it paves the way for the next executive order that would say, well, the government is not going to grant tax-exempt status, it's not going to grant broadcast licenses to any organization that holds on to its religious beliefs that homosexuality is wrong."

"You are right," Wildmon eagerly agreed:

Tom Cotton Manages To Blame Obama For Separatist Groups Shooting Down Plane Over Ukraine

Tom Cotton, the Republican congressman running for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, appeared on “Washington Watch” yesterday to criticize President Obama’s foreign policy, even managing to link the administration to everything from the downing of flight MH17 by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine to the atrocities committed against Christians in Iraq … which he said all leads back to the IRS scandal.

He said that America’s enemies have “realized” that Obama is too “slow to react if he reacts at all” on foreign affairs issues, and so “sometimes that means shooting down an airliner full of innocent civilians, including children, in Ukraine; sometimes that means driving Christians out of a city like Mosul.”

He then told host Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, that the Obama administration has “a very peculiar form of crisis management that seems to create one worse crisis to get the last crisis off of the newspaper headlines. You went from the IRS scandal to the VA to the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap to the Islamic State taking over in Iraq to a civilian airliner being shot out of the skies in Ukraine, it’s hard to imagine they are going to keep this up or what that would mean for America’s national security interests in the world.”

Cotton also claimed that the U.S. had achieved “victory” in the Iraq War until Obama “squandered” it.

WND: Michael Sam Will 'Emasculate' NFL, 'Tony Dungy Is Being Crucified' Over Anti-Gay Remarks

Religious Right activists often attempt to defend anti-gay remarks by insisting that the remarks are merely expressions of religious faith. And that is exactly how they are handling the controversy over former NFL coach Tony Dungy’s comment that he wouldn’t draft Michael Sam because he wouldn’t want “to deal with” attention over his sexual orientation.

Take, for example, WorldNetDaily columnist Carl Jackson, who today not only suggests that Dungy should be immune from criticism because he is a Christian, but insists that anyone who dared to disagree with his remarks has actually “persecuted” and “crucified” him “because he had the courage to say what everyone else thought about the rookie pick.”

“The NFL is being successfully emasculated by the left as evidenced by their pink apparel, the exhortation of an openly gay male in an otherwise super masculine sport and now the demonization of a coach that epitomizes what it means to be a real man,” he writes. Of course, the “pink apparel” he refers to is meant to promote the fight against breast cancer.

There’s a reason Michael Sam was the 249th pick in the seventh round of the NFL draft; the owners, coaches and GMs alike determined he wasn’t good enough to endure the media circus that would accompany him. Tony Dungy, former professional AFL player and first black head NFL coach to win the Super Bowl, has found himself in the midst of a PC firestorm because he had the courage to say what everyone else thought about the rookie pick.

Make no mistake about it: Tony Dungy is being crucified by some of his colleagues in sports media not because they disagree with him, but like Tim Tebow, because of whom and what he represents – Christ, common sense, decency and objective truth. For immoral behavior to be accepted in any culture, moral behavior as well as the source of that moral behavior (Jesus Christ) must be demonized. Political flunky and all around arrogant jerk Keith Olbermann went so far as to say that Tony Dungy is “the worst person in the sports world.” Really, Keithy? Only in a society that refuses to recognize moral absolutes can degenerate bullies like Keith Olbermann get away with spewing such nonsense and vitriol.

It’s become increasingly apparent that sports networks are following in the footsteps of MTV; they’re just as focused on shaping culture as they are displaying talent. The sports media’s hyperbolic and hypocritical reaction to Tony Dungy’s statement regarding whether or not he would’ve drafted Michael Sam proves the Michael Sam pick was just as much a political and cultural calculation for the NFL as it was legitimate.



There’s a valuable lesson to be learned here. The left’s triune god, their “Untouchables” per se, consists of minorities, women and gays. The NFL is being successfully emasculated by the left as evidenced by their pink apparel, the exhortation of an openly gay male in an otherwise super masculine sport and now the demonization of a coach that epitomizes what it means to be a real man. Those of us that are Christian, conservatives or both should expect persecution. However, we can rest assured that even if we’re the only voice crying in the wilderness, we’re still right.

Larry Pratt Doubles Down On Telling Congresswoman She Should Fear Being Shot

Prominent gun lobbyist Larry Pratt is doubling down on his insistence that members of Congress should have a “healthy fear” of being shot, lecturing a congresswoman who felt threatened by one of his group’s members that she just doesn’t understand the Constitution.

Right Wing Watch first reported Pratt’s comments in a March interview with radio host Bill Cunningham. Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America, told Cunningham that a member of his group had spoken to a congresswoman who told him, “you want to shoot me, don’t you.”

“Well, that’s probably a healthy fear for them to have,” Pratt said. “You know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave.”

The quote made it into a recent profile of Pratt in Rolling Stone, where it caught the eye of Mark Kelly, whose wife, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, was critically injured in an assassination attempt, and of Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who it turns out was the threatened congresswoman Pratt had been talking about.

When Kelly called for elected officials to reject all future support from Pratt and Maloney called for an investigation into his comments, Pratt responded by calling Maloney “foolish.”

Then, this week, Pratt doubled down, issuing an open letter to Maloney, a New York Democrat, claiming that she does not understand the Constitution and telling her once again that she “should do her job in constant trepidation” that she will be shot: “Should you attempt to disarm Americans the way the British crown tried 240 years ago, the same sovereign people who constituted this government using the cartridge box someday may need to reconstitute it, as clearly anticipated by the Declaration of Independence.”

You reported that the Capitol Police and House sergeant-at-Arms concluded that there was “nothing to be done,”[3] but since you apparently do not “get it,” allow me to explain the obvious. I have never encouraged, or even suggested, that anyone harm anyone. Rather, my speech was designed to educate citizens, and politicians, that it is the fact that Americans are armed that allows them to resist efforts to be dominated, intimidated, or controlled by politicians.

You should do your job in constant trepidation that:

* Should your constituents disapprove of your job performance, you will be publicly criticized from the soap box;

* Should you enact unconstitutional legislation in violation of your oath of office, you will be voted out via the ballot box;

* Should criminal charges be brought against Americans for crimes which are not authorized by the U.S. Constitution, these prosecutions will be nullified in the jury box; and

* Should you attempt to disarm Americans the way the British crown tried 240 years ago, the same sovereign people who constituted this government using the cartridge box someday may need to reconstitute it, as clearly anticipated by the Declaration of Independence.

Private ownership and skilled use of firearms is what enabled our country to gain its independence, and it is what continues to preserve our liberty. Someday, I hope that you study this aspect of the history of our great nation, that currently allows you to serve in the People’s House, and come to understand the great principles on which it was founded and continues to operate.

Tim Wildmon: Putting Michael Sam 'In With All That Beefcake' Is 'Unfair To The Straight Players'

In a fundraising email today, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon starts out by criticizing Keith Olbermann for naming as his “worst person in sports” a former NFL coach who said he would not have drafted openly gay player Michael Sam because “things will happen” and he “wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.”

But Wildmon uses the anecdote to launch into a larger indictment of the progressive movement and its “PC Gestapo,” which he asserts is “out to destroy our country as it has existed” by being “against patriotism,” “against religion,” “against our Constitutional Bill of Rights,” and “most certainly is for promoting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement and punishing people who dare speak against it.”

Which leads Wildmon back to Michael Sam. Having been a sports reporter and been in locker rooms himself, Wildmon can definitively say that “[p]utting a man like Sam, who says he is sexually attracted to men, in with all that beefcake seems unfair to the straight players and a distraction to Sam.”

The politically correct or "progressive" crowd found a new target this week. When asked about "out and proud" football player Michael Sam, former NFL coach Tony Dungy said he would not have drafted Sam had he still been coaching. Said Dungy: "I wouldn't have [drafted] him. Not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.  It's not going to be totally smooth...things will happen."

For this comment, ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann named Dungy the "Worst Person in the World" on Monday night. Condemnations of Dungy came from all over.

This is where the "progressive" movement is. If you hold a view that is not in agreement with theirs, you are to be demonized by them, the progressives, who, ironically, don't believe in demons. Why do they do this? Because they, the progressives, consider themselves morally superior to those of us who hold traditional values even though, again, ironically, progressives don’t believe in moral values unless they define them. They moralize against those who promote morality.

The progressive movement is out to destroy our country as it has existed. It is against patriotism. It is against religion in general and is in particular hostile to evangelical Christianity and traditional Catholicism. It is against borders. It is against capitalism. It is for high taxation and government control and regulation of almost everything. It wants people depending on government so they can be controlled. It believes government debt is good. It is against our Constitutional Bill of Rights, in particular the First and Second Amendments. It is for abortion on demand even through nine months of pregnancy. It wants to downgrade the American military.  It rejects the idea that Western Civilization is superior to other civilizations. And it most certainly is for promoting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement and punishing people who dare speak against it.

Basically, what I have just described is the platform of the modern day Democrat Party and the philosophy/agenda of much of the New York/Washington, D.C., liberal media, Hollywood and most university campuses. When Barrack [sic] Obama said he wanted to "fundamentally transform" America, what he was saying to his fellow hardcore progressives was: "I've got the wrecking-ball ready."

Sexually, God made man for woman and woman for man. It's obvious. It's natural. Progressives can't stand this. So they are always trying to equate homosexuality with heterosexuality or elevate homosexuality over heterosexuality. When someone like Dungy makes a comment that can in any way been seen as challenging this narrative then that person must be immediately discredited or publicly shamed no matter the truth of what he is saying.

By the way, having been a sports reporter for a few years I've been in many football locker rooms where the players walk around naked or half-naked, changing clothes and going in and out of the showers. Putting a man like Sam, who says he is sexually attracted to men, in with all that beefcake seems unfair to the straight players and a distraction to Sam.

Would you put a heterosexual man in the locker room/showers with all the female cheerleaders? Would you tell the girl cheerleaders who objected to this man being in the locker room that they needed to end their bigoted and sexist attitude and treat the man with respect?

Tony Dungy will probably survive being the "worst person in the world." But the fact that he is in the crosshairs of the PC Gestapo over this comment is chilling to free speech and free thinking.

It's ironic that the people who now scream the loudest about tolerance have become the least tolerant among us.

Sincerely,

Tim Wildmon, President

American Family Association Advertises Off Of Its 'Extremist' Label

The American Family Association is running radio advertisements holding up its “extremist” label as a badge of honor. Of course, even while boasting about its own extremism, AFA manages to twist the facts.

The group claims in its ad — which ran today on American Family Radio — that it only is considered an “extremist” group not because of its over-the-top bigoted statements but because it supports “church on Sundays,” “intact families,” “free speech,” “freedom of religion” and “belief in Jesus Christ.”

'And So It Begins': God Is Calling On Glenn Beck To Stand With Israel And He Needs A Plane

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck announced that God is calling him to go to Israel, which he will be doing in the next week or so in order to publicly take a stand with Israel and its people and ensure that "the genocidal maniacs don't get control of a Jewish state," declaring that  "they will have to roll the tanks over me" before he allows another genocide to take place.

Saying that he feels that he was supposed to be in Israel this weekend, Beck said they simply were unable to pull it off because he does not own a plane.

"Quite honestly, let me just say this out in existence," Beck bluntly stated, "I need an airplane. How's that one? I need an airplane. One that can go global."

Announcing that his Mercury One charity will be delivering a planeload of supplies to the Israeli Defense Forces today, Beck said that everything he has been working toward over the last several is now being put to the test.

"This is it! Game time!," he declared. "Everything I've been talking about the last five years? It's on! Now it begins. And so it begins. This is it. This is the moment that will separate the girls from the boys, the men from the women. This is it."

Not sure how all of this is going to play out, Beck grew emotional as he proclaimed that when he dies, the people who know him will be able to say that he "did everything he could to remain a human."

"My status and citizenship in the Kingdom of God comes first over my citizenship in this country," he said, choking back tears. "My being a human outranks my being an American and if those are ever flipped, America and being an American mean nothing anyway":
