Todd Bentley Claims To Have Brought 35 People Back From The Dead

On Friday night, we spotted a tweet from Rick Joyner's MorningStar Ministries, alerting us to the fact that Todd Bentley was preaching at Joyner's church that evening on the raising of the dead:

Joyner has been key in "restoring" Bentley's reputation after he divorced his wife back in 2008 and, on Friday, the two men were preaching together at Joyner's "Harvest Fest 2015" event. Unfortunately, the footage from the event is only available to those with a subscription so we have been unable to watch it, though a short excerpt was released on the MorningStar YouTube page showing Bentley bragging about how he recently revived three people from the dead during an event in Pakistan:

It turns out that these are just the latest in a long string of resurrections of the dead in Bentley's career, as he explained earlier this month at a different event that he has been responsible for no fewer than 35 such miracles over the years.

Bentley recalled how he had recently cured a young girl of Down syndrome and had even brought back from the dead a man who, 48 hours earlier, had been electrocuted so badly that all of his internal organs were melted.

"I wish we had a dead body we could pray for, but we don't. That would have been a great illustration," Bentley stated, explaining that he travels with a "raising the dead tent" in which he places those who have recently died so that he can pray them back to life.

So far, he's managed to bring back 35 people, Bentley said, but for best results, they have to have died in the last couple of days.  Four days, it turns out, is generally the limit at which he is capable of bringing people back from the dead.

Rick Joyner: Jade Helm 15 Could Lead To Martial Law, Which Might Be A Good Thing

In a program that aired over a week after the conclusion of the Jade Helm 15 training exercise televangelists Jim Bakker and Rick Joyner wondered if the military drill was a precursor to martial law.

Joyner said that he received a message from God in 1987 that martial law was coming to America, insisting that “it can be a good thing” if we “get the right martial who can get things back on track.”

Bakker, who worried that he would end up in jail as a result of Jade Helm 15, then asked Joyner if he was worried that “martial law is going to come out of” the military exercise, which Joyner said is a possibility since all “first world nations” are “preparing for everything from pandemics to whatever to create a situation where you need martial law.”

Rick Joyner: God Could Be Sending Donald Trump To Save America

Conservative televangelist Rick Joyner is a big fan of Donald Trump, so used some of his time at a “Prophetic Conference” organized by Jim Bakker last week to sing the praises of the GOP presidential frontrunner.

Likening Trump to King Cyrus, the Persian king hailed for liberating the Jews from captivity in Babylon, Joyner said that God could use a President Trump to “turn it around” for the country because “his kind of boldness” and “courage” is exactly what America needs.

“It’s going to take incredible boldness to think ways nobody else can think and do things, if God is going to send us somebody to do it,” he said.

The Radical History Behind The Center For Medical Progress' Sham Planned Parenthood Investigation

This summer, a group called the Center for Medical Progress began to release a series of videos from an undercover “investigation” which it claimed showed that Planned Parenthood “sells aborted baby parts” for profit.

Since then, those claims have been roundly debunked, but the stir created by CMP’s videos has led to votes on defunding Planned Parenthood in the House and Senate and in several states, multiple House hearings (including one happening right now) and the threat of a government shutdown, and even contributed to the resignation of the speaker of the House.

Although little was known at first about who the Center for Medical Progress was, researchers and journalists quickly traced its ties to a number of radical anti-choice groups, and especially to Operation Rescue, which has existed for decades on the radical fringe of the anti-choice movement.

In a new report released today, People For the American Way explores the ties between CMP and its founder, David Daleiden, and Operation Rescue, placing Daleiden’s project in the history of the “direct action” anti-choice movement’s attempts to harass and intimidate abortion providers and patients.

In a radio interview first reported in the PFAW report, Operation Rescue’s second-in-command, Cheryl Sullenger, who spent time in federal prison in the 1980s for attempting to bomb an abortion clinic, explained that Daleiden approached her organization because he “shared our vision” for bringing “an end to the abortion industry in America” through attacking Planned Parenthood.

The “direct action” movement that Operation Rescue and CMP represent originated with dissidents from the National Right to Life Committee, which after the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade was the main organization working to overturn the decision and outlaw abortion through legislation. Early “direct action” protesters abandoned this legislative strategy and instead focuses on attacking legal abortion at its source, harassing abortion providers and patients and sometimes physically preventing women from entering abortion clinics in what became known as “rescue” missions.

As part of this strategy, Operation Rescue now advises activists to use a wide range of methods, including covert ones such as the “sting” operation Daleiden carried out, to gather information on abortion providers (and sometimes patients) in order to harass them at their homes and workplaces or to make their clinics expensive to operate.

One strategy later perfected by Mark Crutcher, who runs a group called Life Dynamics, used sham “investigations” to infiltrate and unnerve abortion providers. One of Crutcher’s investigations attacked the legal practice of fetal tissue donation for medical research; Daleiden has admitted that Crutcher gave him the idea for CMP’s project. The purpose of Crutcher’s investigations was not to shed light on hidden truths, but instead to intimidate abortion providers in order to stop them from offering their services, with the goal of building Crutcher once called “an America where abortion may indeed be perfectly legal, but no one can get one.”

Although Daleiden calls himself an “investigative journalist,” he actually comes out of this tradition of intimidation and harassment disguised as investigation.

Mike Huckabee: Launch Proceedings Against Judge In Kim Davis Case

In an interview on American Family Radio on Friday, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee denounced the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling as “illegal” and “unconstitutional,” insisting that if he is elected president, his administration will not recognize such a ruling.

“It is not the law of the land because it has not been affirmed by the people’s representatives,” Huckabee said, seemingly unaware of the concept of judicial review. “There is nothing in the Constitution that gives the Supreme Court the authority to decide what states should do about marriage. Nothing.”

A future Huckabee administration, he said, would defend people like Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis, who repeatedly defied court orders requiring the county to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples, and would ensure that “proceedings started against the judge who overreached” in the case because Davis was “put in jail because she’s a Christian.”

Theodore Shoebat Calls For A Global 'Inquisition' To Put Gays To Death

Theodore Shoebat, who was among the dozens of anti-gay activists, Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential hopefuls to be featured in Janet Porter's recent anti-gay "Light Wins" documentary, posted a new video over the weekend calling for a global "Inquisition" to eradicate homosexuality once and for all.

Outraged over reports that a doctor had been let go by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for repeatedly spreading anti-gay material to colleagues, Shoebat posted a video declaring that "sodomite homo Sharia" was being imposed on America by "sodomite bastards" and "faggots" who do nothing but "go around spreading AIDS."

The only solution, he declared, is the imposition of a global law criminalizing homosexuality that will be enforced by a modern-day Inquisition with the power to put gays to death.

"I'm sick and tired of the homo tyranny," he said. "What the world needs is a collective law ... What we need is the laws of God, the virtues of Heaven to become the law of the world. That is the bottom line. Do I believe in Christian world domination? Absolutely. I would be a liar if I said I didn't. Do I believe in Christian supremacy? Absolutely. Do I believe in democracy? Hell no. Do I believe in some sort of a democratic socialist republic? Hell no. I believe in monarchy, I believe in Inquisitions, I believe we need to revive the system of the Middle Ages that we had; we had no fag problems, we didn't have a lot of serial killers back in those days, we didn't have frickin drug cartel problems, we had none of the crap. We didn't have no fags asking to be married. None of that garbage."

"It's homo tyranny and it needs to be destroyed," Shoebat continued, "Christian world domination needs to be established and homosexuality needs to be deemed as a crime. And the homos need to be told, hey, you gotta stop that and if they don't stop that then, I'm sorry, we have an Inquisition and that Inquisition will enact the death penalty, as Scripture tells us."

With extreme views like this, it doesn't come as much of a surprise to learn that places like Matt Barber's BarbWire website are now quietly trying to cover up any ties to Shoebat.

WND Pundit: Rosa Parks Supported 'Systematic Murder' Of African-Americans

Following the CNN Republican presidential debate, we pointed out the irony of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio taking time to heap praise on Rosa Parks in between attacks on Planned Parenthood seeing that the late civil rights leader was an active supporter of the women’s health organization, even serving on its board of advocates.

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie today boasted that unlike Cruz and Rubio, “I for one have been well aware of Rosa Parks’ dubious association with Planned Parenthood, which is exactly why I have made it a point not to sing her praises over the years like so many others have.”

“The behavior of the referenced liberal groups demonstrates the pleasure these ‘Hitlerians’ derive from persons of color systematically exterminating themselves,” he wrote, referring to the right-wing myth that abortion is “black genocide,” before adding that “Rosa Parks, the Obamas, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus and every black Democrat support blacks systematically murdering their future generations.”

Liberal websites were beside themselves with the frenetic glee typically displayed by winos and drug addicts when they ask for change and the person gives them a $20 bill.

The noxious liberal groups were gleeful because Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio had said they would like to see the image of the late Rosa Parks on one of the bills. They mocked Rubio and Cruz because the two failed to realize the question was a “gotcha” question intended to trip up the candidates.

Liberals saw it as a moment of uncontested irony that the adversaries of the murder of unborn children would advocate for a baby-killer group board member to be on our currency.

But I look at it differently. Let me first point out that liberals are clamorous, but they aren’t overly informed. I for one have been well aware of Rosa Parks’ dubious association with Planned Parenthood, which is exactly why I have made it a point not to sing her praises over the years like so many others have.

The behavior of the referenced liberal groups demonstrates the pleasure these “Hitlerians” derive from persons of color systematically exterminating themselves!

Margaret Sanger, the patron saint of Planned Parenthood, would be delighted to know that the very people persons of color esteem and idolize are the very people who are responsible for their murder!

Rosa Parks, the Obamas, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus and every black Democrat support blacks systematically murdering their future generations. If Hitler had been as devious as Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood and liberals who support the most depraved forms of sexual behavior but who are committed to making sure blacks do not reproduce on a level consistent with even 10 percent of their total populace, he would be applauded today even as liberals applaud Sanger.

Liberals today have specialized in the extermination of blacks, and even more cleverly, they have the people being exterminated paying hundreds of millions of dollars annually to kill their own offspring and cancel all hope of any meaningful future history.

Carly Fiorina Falsely Claims She Never Called Obergefell The 'Law Of The Land'

As a number of commentators have pointed out recently, Carly Fiorina’s swift rise in Republican presidential polls has given her an opportunity to display what Mother Jones called her “adventurous relationship to the truth,” which includes deliberately misleading statements on everything from the contents of the Planned Parenthood smear videos to her record as CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

Fiorina displayed her signature truthiness once again in an interview Friday with Iowa conservative radio host Jan Mickelson, who asked her to defend her statement that Supreme Court decisions like Obergefell v. Hodges are “the law of the land,” which he said would turn off voters in Iowa.

Fiorina insisted that she had never said that, speculating, “I think that is a quote from someone else, not from me,” and suggesting that Mickelson might be thinking of her Republican rival John Kasich.

In fact, Fiorina said those very words in an interview with the Iowa conservative blog Caffeinated Thoughts in May when asked about the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision in the marriage equality case.

“I think the Supreme Court decision will become the law of the land, and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it,” she said. “And I very much hope that we will come to a place now in this nation where we can support their decision and at the same time support people’s right to hold religious views and to protect their right to exercise those views.”

Fiorina told Mickelson that “there is an argument to be made for judicial engagement to rectify when the law begins to impinge on the personal immunities and privileges of citizens,” but seemed to imply that the denial of marriage rights was not such a case. Grasping onto the Right’s argument that LGBT equality undermines religious freedom, she called for the passage of state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws similar to a controversial one passed and later amended in Indiana, which would have opened the door for anti-LGBT discrimination. She also called for the passage of such a law at “the federal level” — there is already a federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, so presumably Fiorina supports one that would expand the ability of people to discriminate against LGBT people.

Fiorina also promised that if she were to become president, she would “appoint the right justices” and “spend a lot of time” with potential nominees “to see how well they hold up to pressure, because people look like they’re one thing and then become another thing when they can’t take pressure.”

When Mickelson suggested that Sen. Ted Cruz might fit the bill for a Fiorina Supreme Court, Fiorina laughed: “Well, wouldn’t that be an interesting selection. He clearly can stand up to pressure.”

UPDATE: Fiorina appeared again on Mickelson’s program on Monday, where he confronted her a clip of her “law of the land” comments. Fiorina evaded the question, telling Mickelson that she had “no idea what reference that snippet was from,” but that if it was “about gay marriage” she was saying that “we profoundly disagree with this” and will focus on finding Supreme Court nominees who will overturn it.

What I said, for example, was we need to be, if that was about gay marriage, we profoundly disagree with this, we need to invest our political capital and our leadership now in protecting religious liberty all across this nation, which means every state needs to enact a religious freedom protection act, as we have a national act. And it also reminds us how important it is who’s on the Supreme Court. So, let’s focus our energies on making sure we have the right nominees and the right protections and liberties.

Right Wing Round-Up - 9/28/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 9/28/15

  • Dinesh D'Souza is working on a new movie that will "look at the secret history of progressivism and of the Democratic Party."
  • You really have to feel for the person over at FRC who was tasked with transcribing Donald Trump's word salad of a speech at the Values Voter Summit.
  • Once again, Glenn Beck is "going to turn over a new leaf" and if any of his previous declarations are any indication, it will probably lead to no discernible difference in any way whatsoever.
  • Lance Wallnau has a beef with Pope Francis.
  • Barbara Simpson also has concerns: "Is the pope socialist? A communist? I don’t know, but I hope we find out before the Church is destroyed from within."
  • Finally, Julio Severo is not happy with the nomination of Eric Fanning to serve as Secretary of the Army: "I am sure that in Obama’s and Fanning’s case, the Father of America would approve sentence on them and he would treat, with abhorrence and detestation, their sodomy and sodomy advocacy as an infamous crime. In the least, Obama would be expelled from the U.S. presidency and Fanning would be expelled from Army, both with dishonor, never to return. Both have committed treason against the Father of America."
