Rick Wiles: 'Jihad Barry' Leading An 'Islamic Invasion Of America'

Yesterday, in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, End Times radio host Rick Wiles returned to one of his favorite subjects, claiming that the Syrian refugee crisis is all part of “Jihad Barry” Obama’s plot to “lead an Islamic invasion of America.”

Wiles cited the words of Avi Lipkin, who has recently been spreading the rumor that there are ISIS plants in every church in America, saying that Lipkin told him as far back as 2011 that “Barack Obama was going to lead an Islamic invasion of America, that there was going to be chaos in the Middle East and it would be the cover to migrate millions of Muslims into the West.”

Wiles said that while, at the time, people “couldn’t imagine it,” recent events are bearing out Lipkin’s prediction.

“I’m telling you, this is what’s going on,” he said, “this mass migration is not an accident, it’s not the fruit of bad policy, it’s the fruit of deliberate policy. This is a man who is deliberately hitting beehives, going from tree to tree hitting a beehive with a baseball bat. He knows what he’s doing, and this is to create total confusion in the West. I’m talking about Barack Obama, this man is Jihad Barry. He is a jihadist.”

Although people might laugh now, he said, “I believe history will prove me to be right.”

Sheriff David Clarke: Obama Has Turned America Into A ‘Hot Mess’

Last week on his program on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze radio network, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke continued his criticism of President Obama’s handling of race relations in America. Clarke is convinced that America has “retrogressed” because Obama has “incited Americans against Americans.”

“The republic is in crisis right now,” Clarke said. “Obama has pitted the poor against the rich, he’s pitted blacks against whites, he’s pitted illegal immigrants against American citizens, he’s pitted women against men.” Clarke concluded that America is a “hot mess right now.”

Clarke then compared the current social unrest in the country to other “defining moments” in American history, such as the Revolution, the Civil War and World War II. He argued that America will survive, just like we did before, but only if people are willing to fight back against “subversives” like Obama who are “trying to bring this republic down.”

Todd Starnes: Obama Would Rather See A US City Nuked 'Than Profile Someone Who Might Be A Terrorist'

Falsely suggesting that Syrian refugees are being admitted into the U.S. without being vetted, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes claimed today that the Obama administration “would rather have a nuclear bomb go off in an American city than profile someone who might be a terrorist.”

In an interview with St. Louis radio host Jamie Allman this morning, Starnes first claimed that Muslims hadn’t done enough to denounce 9/11 and the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and then absurdly claimed that the Obama administration “objects” to vetting refugees.

“I just think it’s prudent to take your time and vet these people coming into the country,” he said. “And the Obama administration objects to this, but the fact of the matter is it may be a moot point, Jamie, we just don’t know who’s been coming across our southern border and I suspect that we’ve got a lot of these folks just lurking and living among us.”

In reality, those applying for refugee resettlement in the U.S. go through a stringent vetting process that takes an average of two years to complete.

“Jamie, I honestly think that with this administration, the moral high ground, they would rather have a nuclear bomb go off in an American city than profile someone who might be a terrorist,” Starnes added. “I think they think in their minds, the moral high ground, that would be the moral high ground. It’s just really outrageous.”

Beck: America Is 'Ripe For Assassinations' ... Or Maybe Not, 'I Don't Know'

Glenn Beck dedicated his television program last night to recounting how he has supposedly accurately predicted the course of global affairs since 9/11, right down to last week's terrorist attacks in Paris. Utilizing at least six chalkboards, Beck recounted a host of predictions he has made over the years which, he claims, have all come true.

Given his amazing track record, Beck then went on to warn that 2016 is going to be a reoccurence of 1968, in which America will be plagued with social unrest and assassinations of political leaders ... or maybe it'll happen in 2017 ... or maybe it'll never happen, he doesn't know. 

"I hate even saying this," Beck said, "but I'm telling you that I have a very strong feeling that next year will be 1968 all over again. We are going to be ripe for assassinations. Massive instability is coming our way. It might be next year, it might be 24 months, it might never happen, I don't know, but we have a pretty good track record."

As usual, Beck conveniently hedged his bets so that if anything like this does happen, he can claim to have predicted it, while if it doesn't happen, he can just ignore it, as he does with all of his predictions that never came true.

Tony Perkins: Terrorists Unlikely To Strike South Because 'We Know How To Defend Ourselves'

On his “Washington Watch” radio program yesterday, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins speculated that if terrorists associated with ISIS were to attack the U.S., they would be unlikely to strike the South because “more of the citizens are armed” and “know how to defend ourselves.”

Perkins was interviewing Rep. Steve Womack, R- Ark., about a bill he has introduced to revoke the passports of U.S. citizens suspected of joining terrorist organizations, when Womack warned that it’s “plausible to believe that we could potentially have the same thing brewing in our country that obviously demonstrated, manifested itself on Friday in France.”

“I agree with you,” Perkins replied. “I do think it’s less likely to happen in the South, where more of the citizens are armed. I’m serious.”

Womack laughed in response to Perkins’ remark but clarified, “I’m not laughing to make a joke out of it, I’m just telling you, as a concealed carry permit guy myself and as somebody who represents a great district in the third district of Arkansas where there’s a lot of folks like us, it’s probably less likely that it would happen there, although if you want to make a statement there are many targets in the South that go right to the heart of who we are as Americans.”

“That’s true, but we know how to defend ourselves,” Perkins said.

Huckabee: Obama Wants to 'Protect The Reputation Of A Radical Religion' More Than The US

In an interview with Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon on his Sirius XM program this morning, Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee insisted that the Obama administration wants to “protect Muslims and the reputation of Muslims more than they want to protect the United States.”

Huckabee was addressing the reluctance of President Obama and the Democratic presidential candidates to declare that the U.S. is at war with “radical Islam,” the same linguistic strategy used by President Bush.

“So we have both Shia and Sunni radical Muslims, but this is an administration that doesn’t even want to say that they’re radical Muslims,” Huckabee said. “They just want to protect Muslims and the reputation of Muslims more than they want to protect the United States, and you cannot win a war if you don’t even identify your enemy.”

Alleging that the Democratic candidates were reluctant to use the term because “they want to be politically correct, they don’t want to offend anybody,” Huckabee said, “If you want to talk about offense, I’m offended that our government seems to want to protect the reputation of a radical religion more than it wants to protect American citizens.”

“When I go deer hunting, I’ve got to know the difference between a deer and a cow because if you don’t know your target, you’re likely to make a real mess of things,” he added. “This is a president who doesn’t know a deer from a cow, and he’s going out there and insulting Americans by making it as if there’s something wrong with us because we’re not just real excited about” bringing in refugees from the Syrian civil war.

Tom DeLay: President Obama Is A 'Coward' Who Has 'Surrendered To ISIS'

Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax Prime yesterday, where he declared that President Obama is a coward who has "surrendered to ISIS" and so Republicans need to dedicate themselves to putting pressure on Obama and the Democrats to launch a full-scale war against ISIS.

"We have a president that is feckless, that is incompetent, that has no idea what he's doing," DeLay declared, "and Congress has to say it, Congress has to stand up."

"If I was there," he continued, "I would suspend all legislation for the rest of the year .... and focus on going to war and eliminating ISIS and go to the American people in their districts and in their states, explain what's going on here, explain what has to happen, show them a president that is a coward and stand up for the people when they rise up. First place I would go is I would go to every state that has a Democrat senator and every district that has a Democrat House member and I would physically move my members into those districts and start holding town meetings and hang Obama around these Democrats and weaken their resolve to support this horrible strategy of Obama's. Then you can build a pressure cooker that might force the president to do the right thing."

Right Wing Round-Up - 11/16/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 11/16/15

  • The CEO of has millions of dollars in gold and silver hidden away in case the financial system collapses, which seem entirely predictable for someone who is one of Glenn Beck's close friends and a main advertiser on his network.
  • Saying that the government should have stayed out of the Terri Schiavo case is probably not going to win Ben Carson much support among the Religious Right.
  • Deacon Keith Fournier is outraged that the Associated Press "defamed" Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver by daring to report that he is the head of an anti-gay hate group.
  • John Lomperis of The Institute on Religion and Democracy is disturbed that a gay couple received a standing ovation from congregants of First United Methodist Church of Austin after announcing their intention to marry. 
  • Finally, Gordon Klingenschmitt claims that his superiors in the Navy conspired against him just "like Pontius Pilate conspiring with the Pharisees to crucify this young prophet."

Anti-Refugee Activists Call For End To All Muslim Immigration After Paris Attacks

Since the news broke that one of the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks on Paris that killed more than 120 people on Friday may have snuck into France by infiltrating the waves of refugees from Syria’s civil war, at least nine Republican governors and one Democrat have said that their states will refuse to accept Syrian refugees (something that they can’t actually do) and GOP presidential contenders including Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee have called on the president and Congress to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the country as a whole. Cruz has suggested accepting only Christian refugees from the country, while Jeb Bush has hinted at the same thing.

This is a dream come true for the anti-refugee movement in the U.S. which had already been trying to claim that Syrian refugees — who go through a long and arduous security screening process before being admitted to the U.S. — represent a threat to national security.

The leading activist focusing specifically on preventing the resettlement of refugees in the U.S., Refugee Resettlement Watch’s Ann Corcoran, wrote on her blog today that other commitments kept her from writing much today, “But, LOL!, there are so many people writing about refugees now that I can soon retire!”

Prominent anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney responded to the news of the Paris attacks by calling for “a moratorium on Muslim migration” to the U.S., circulating a post from Corcoran calling for the same.

Pamela Geller predictably went even farther, writing on her blog yesterday that President Obama “should be brought up on charges” if he allows any more Muslims into the U.S.

NO MUSLIM MIGRANTS. Obama should be brought up on charges if he moves forward and brings these murderers here. They mean to kill us.

As refugee resettlement experts explained to Politifact last month, trying to game the refugee resettlement process would not be a likely method for an ISIS terrorist trying to reach the U.S.:

The U.N. has said 10 percent, or about 400,000, of the Syrian refugees in camps need to be resettled. President Barack Obama announced that in fiscal year 2016 (through Sept. 30), the United States would accept at least 10,000 refugees from Syria.

Those 10,000 aren’t necessarily the type of people who would be ISIS operatives as Trump fears, according to Mock.

"The priorities go to torture survivors, people with serious medical conditions, children and teens on their own, and women and children at risk," Mock said. The people selected undergo screening by state agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security. The process can take years.

That doesn’t make for an efficient method of terrorizing the United States, Foundation for Defense of Democracies senior fellow Daveed Gartenstein-Ross said. While it’s a legitimate concern that there are ways of beating the screening process, he said, there would be more efficient ways for ISIS cells to reach America than what Trump is fearing.

"Instead of sitting around hoping you win the refugee lottery and then wait years, then pass the screening to get to America, it would be much easier for a terrorist group to send a person through Europe or put them onto an airplane to the United States," Gartenstein-Ross said. "If they could otherwise pass the refugee screening process, they could certainly get on an airplane."

As the libertarian Niskanen Center notes, “not one” of the millions of refugees admitted under the U.S. refugee resettlement program since 1980 “has committed an act of terrorism in the U.S.”
