Ben Carson: Baltimore Strife 'Not A Racial Issue' Since The Mayor Is Black

While speaking today at the Iowa National Security Action Summit, Ben Carson warned that nefarious forces trying to bring about “fundamental change” are sparking racial strife throughout the country.

“You look at situations that occurred in Baltimore and some of our other cities and they tried to make those into racial issues, Carson saidBut Baltimore has a black mayor, it has a black police commissioner, most of the police officers are members of minorities, so that’s not a racial issue.

He blamed the recent strife in the city on agitators and “purveyors of discord,” saying that the city’s problems can be solved through a mix of tax breaks and deregulation.

Ben Carson: Anti-American Spirit Within Obama Administration

Today at the Iowa National Security Action Summit, an event organized by right-wing conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson delivered a vague speech about how divisive political rhetoric is undermining the country’s security.

Naturally, when a member of the audience told Carson that there is a “strong anti-American spirit that is undermining everything that we stand for” within the Obama administration, Carson told him that he was “absolutely right.”

Carson said that even before President Obama took office, the U.S. government was turning against the American people and recommended that people read far-right author W. Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.”

As Alexander Zaitchick notes, Skousen argued that a cabal of wealthy globalists bent on creating a one-world government has infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. and the Soviet Union.

“This has been going on long before this administration, though, this has been going on for 30, 40, 50 years, it’s called the progressive agenda,” Carson said. “There’s a book called 'The Naked Communist ' by Cleon Skousen, it was written in 1958, and it goes through the agenda they have here to fundamentally change our country, and I recommend that book because you would think it was written last year. But I believe that this is well orchestrated and the thing that they need in order to finally achieve their goal is for people with common sense to keep their mouths shut. And that’s what we can’t do, we have to stand up for what we believe in.”

  • Gary Bauer has some thoughts on the sorts of "gotcha questions" he wants to see Democratic presidential candidates have to face.
  • Mat Staver says that "the push for transgender rights is all a part of the homosexual agenda to create sexual anarchy in order to destroy marriage, morality, and objective truth. This is not civil rights; this is the abolition of civil rights. It is the deconstruction of objective reality and natural law."

Louie Gohmert: Allowing DREAMers In Military Would Have Been Very Rude To Texas Judge

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, is outraged that Congress nearly approved a Defense Department spending bill that included a provision encouraging the military to allow undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children to enlist. Gohmert told talk radio host Greg Garrison today that provision, which was stripped from the bill in a narrow vote yesterday, would have been a “slap” at the U.S. district court judge in Texas who has placed a hold on President Obama’s executive actions deferring deportation for some undocumented immigrants.

Gohmert praised Judge Andrew Hanen, who is known as one of the most conservative federal judges in the country, for “singlehandedly stopping the illegal, unconstitutional amnesty,” and declared that it would have been “just totally inappropriate to slap him after he was being such a stand-up man for the Constitution.”

Can you imagine if you’re the U.S. district judge in the Southern District of Texas that’s single-handedly stopping the illegal, unconstitutional amnesty, and then you have the House of Representatives, not only with not enough guts to stop the illegal amnesty like they promised, but then turn around and slap the one judge that’s acting constitutionally? I mean, that would have been such an outrage, and I’m glad we were able to beat that back yesterday.

...

This was even more egregious because it was slapping in the face the one stand-up judge who stood against the illegal amnesty while Republicans in Congress were breaking their promise that we’d stop the illegal amnesty. Our leadership didn’t stand on their promises as they promised, but we had a judge that did the right thing by the Constitution, and it was just totally inappropriate to slap him after he was being such a stand-up man for the Constitution.

Craig James: LGBT Community's Intolerance 'Is Going To Kill America'

Family Research Council official Craig James guest-hosted the organization’s “Washington Watch” program yesterday, where he chatted with Texas conservative activist Jonathan Saenz about how an anti-gay bill failed in Texas legislature in part due to opposition from the Texas Association of Business.

James criticized the business group, claiming that the fight over the legislation “highlights how fearful business owners are of the blowback from the LGBT community and from folks who feel like we should be all tolerant and loving and accepting of everything.”

James, who works for one of the nation’s most virulently anti-LGBT groups, whose leaders (including James) have described gays rights as a tool of the Devil, defended Uganda’s kill-the-gays bill, called for an anti-gay revolution and urged the government to export gay people from the country, told Saenz that the LGBT community needs to show more civility or America will be lost.

“It’s the one-way street that is going to kill America,” James said. “This country has had a two-lane highway forever, both sides had the freedom to believe. Civility is gone. We’re haters if we think otherwise. What’s wrong with this country?”

Later in the program, a caller said that “we are being punished” by God because “the conservative ones of America have been silent for too long” and “part of that punishment is that we’ve been straddled in this country with a President Obama.”

His claim was met with hearty amens from James, who thanked the caller for his “great wisdom.” James warned that “the slippery slope is on right now and coming here in a few weeks, we’ll hear from the Supreme Court about the definition of marriage. If they try to redefine marriage and force that on all the states and all the people, that’s coming down the lane at us.”

Texas Activist: People Moving To Texas Because It Banned Gay Marriage

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Jonathan Saenz of the Religious Right group Texas Values criticized state lawmakers for failing to vote on a proposal that would have invalidated several LGBT nondiscrimination measures passed by cities throughout the state.

In particular, Saenz denounced the Texas Association of Business, which opposed the measures and said “they would devastate economic development, tourism and the convention business.”

Saenz said that the business lobby offered “absurd” reasons to “oppose religious freedom efforts,” adding that members would be “shocked” if they knew about the organization’s “extreme,” “far-left” leadership.

Laws against LGBT equality, Saenz said, “have helped Texas and have been a part of what makes Texas great. You see flocking from New York and California because of our business climate but it’s also a part of the values that we have. So this type of war on values from the Texas Association of Business within our state has got to end.”

Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum similarly told a Texas Values gathering last year that people are leaving states that “embrace homosexual marriage” for Texas. Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly has also claimed that “many Americans are dissenting with their feet” and moving to states that ban gay marriage.

Fischer: 'I Believe We Are Going To Have Violence' If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage​

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer called upon state legislatures to pass resolutions declaring that they will not abide by any Supreme Court ruling that legalizes gay marriage, warning that failure to do so would result in chaos, civil unrest, and violence.

Declaring that states "have every moral and legal right to ignore the federal government," Fischer said that such a step was necessary to save America from tyranny and social chaos.

"The Supreme Court can be slapped down through a deliberative and representative process," he said, "rather than through chaos and civil unrest which I and a lot of other pro-family leaders fear is the alternative. If the Supreme Court continues to overreach and they aren't checked, we are headed towards civil unrest, I don't think there is any other way around it. If it's not stopped and reversed, the tyrannical overreach of the Supreme Court, we are to have social dislocation and I believe we are going to have violence as a result. And that is simply because freedom is too deeply ingrained in the DNA of the American people to permit tyranny to continue unchecked forever":

GOP Rep: Obama Must Officially 'Declare War On The Concept Of Terror'

Last month, Ohio Republican Rep. Bill Johnson stopped by “The Tom Roten Morning Show,” where he said that just as many did not grasp the Nazi threat in the run-up to World War II, the Obama administration is ignoring the dangers posed by terrorist groups today.

The congressman’s solution? Issuing a formal declaration of war against “the concept of terror.”

“The same thing is happening now when we are denying that we are at war with terror,” Johnson said. “If I were the president, I would be declaring war on terror. I’m talking about formally, having Congress do it. That is not declaring war on a nation but it is declaring war on the concept of terror.”

He also claimed that violent groups like ISIS which claim to represent Islam are the only true Muslims : “Islam has morphed over the last thousand years as it has tempered its violent tendencies. What we are seeing in ISIS is actually going all the way back 1,000 years to the ideology that Mohammad advocated. That’s the way they did things.”
