Pat Robertson: Electing Mike Huckabee Would Be A 'Hallelujah Moment' For America

Mike Huckabee appeared on today’s edition of “The 700 Club,” where he spoke with host Pat Robertson about how the country is witnessing “the trampling of civil rights” because the Obama administration “destroyed the basic constitutional foundation” of America.

Robertson, who endorsed Huckabee’s rival Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 Republican presidential primary, kicked off the interview by asking Huckabee how he will restore America once he takes the oath of office as president.

“I think that if that were to happen it would be for some people America’s national nightmare,” Huckabee joked.

Robertson replied: “For others it would be a hallelujah moment!”

Huckabee may want to keep in mind that Robertson once told Mitt Romney that God informed him that he would defeat Obama and should save him a seat at the inauguration.

Michael Savage: Obama Wants To Bring Ebola Epidemic To America, Should Resign

Right-wing radio talk show host Michael Savage announced yesterday that the Dallas patient diagnosed with Ebola proves his conspiracy theory that President Obama is deliberately bringing in diseases to kill Americans as part of his purported war on white people.

He claimed that a treasonous Obama “wants to infect the nation with Ebola,” warning that the president decided to send U.S. service members to West Africa in hopes that one of the soldiers would contract Ebola and bring it back home.

“If we had a legitimate president with a conscience he would resign,” Savage said in reaction to the Dallas Ebola case. “He would say, ‘You know what, I meant well but I screwed up at every level, I’m resigning.’ But you don’t have such a situation, you have a zealot who has no conscience.”

Savage suggested that Obama seeks to bring the Ebola epidemic to America in order to turn the U.S. into a Third World nation and bring the country down: “That’s the way to make things fair and equitable. You can’t have a nation with such good health in a world where there’s such sickness. Obama wants equality and he wants fairness and it’s only fair that America have a nice epidemic or two or three or four in order to really feel what it’s like to be in the Third World. You have to look at it from the point of view of a leftist.”

Michele Bachmann: The GOP's End Times 'Foreign Policy Expert'

Michele Bachmann has big plans for her career after Congress, and apparently that includes “looking to burnish her credentials as a foreign policy expert.”

As Politico reports today, the retiring Minnesota congressman is working with Rick Santorum and Tony Perkins in hopes of becoming “a female conservative foil” to Hillary Clinton.

The divisive four-term congresswoman is leaving Capitol Hill in January, but she has no intention of fading into post-congressional irrelevance.

Instead, the Minnesota Republican is fiercely courting media and speaking opportunities, likely in Washington, New York or Los Angeles, and looking to burnish her credentials as a foreign policy expert ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Her hope is to emerge as the “anti-Hillary,” a female conservative foil to likely Democratic presidential contender and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.



But even critics have learned to underestimate Bachmann at their peril. To prepare for the post-congressional transition, Bachmann is working with conservative heavyweights like former GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. She’s also working on softening her public persona by repeatedly hitting up television shows with younger audiences that focus on families.

Bachmann’s foreign policy views are, by her own admission, immensely shaped by her belief that the U.S. is living in the End Times.

Last year, after falsely claiming that President Obama was aiding Al Qaeda, Bachmann cited the non-existent aid to Al Qaeda is proof that “we are in God’s End Times history” and that “we need to rejoice, Maranatha come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand. When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah. We are seeing that in our time.”

“These are the times of birth pangs, we’re seeing the intensity of age and the speed and rapidity that these events are starting to speed up so fast that we can hardly get our minds about it,” she said of the coming Last Days in another interview last year.

Bachmann believes that Obama’s Mideast policy was predicted by biblical passages about an End Times battle where the powers of the world align against Israel: “The nations of the world will come against Israel and the scripture very specifically says all nations, now for the United States we don’t have that experience until recently under President Obama with the United States not standing with Israel.”

She also contends that the Obama administration, especially the State Department under former Secretary of State Clinton, has experienced “deep penetration” by Muslim Brotherhood agents and as a result U.S. officials have “embraced the worldview aspirations of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

If Bachmann does decide to become a leading conservative voice on foreign affairs as a “foil” to Clinton, we shouldn’t forget that Bachmann sees the End Times struggle taking place today, and has already claimed that God is not on Clinton’s side:

Tony Perkins: Gun-Toting Texans, Not Liberal New Englanders, Will Stop The Terrorists

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said on his “Washington Watch” radio program yesterday that the U.S. government is failing to protect the southern border, enabling members of ISIS or another terrorist group to enter the country and launch a dirty bomb attack.

Since federal officials refuse to act, Perkins said, America’s last defense against ISIS may be Texas gun owners who will quash the plans of terrorists coming to America, adding that he wouldn’t rely on liberal New Englanders to protect the country.

“It’s to the nation’s benefit that Texas is on our southern border and not one of the New England states because in Texas you’ll be hard-pressed to find a household that doesn’t have a gun and an owner that knows how to use it,” he said.

“Where if they were going to invade, someone was going to move into our country and do it through the New England states, we’d all be in trouble. That’s part of the Second Amendment, it may be that even the liberals will be grateful for the Second Amendment if the government doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do and keep us safe.”

Rick Wiles: Beheadings Will Occur 'Every Week In America' Thanks To Secret Islamic Code

The beheading of an Oklahoma woman is only beginning of a larger Muslim plot to kill Americans, according to “Trunews” host Rick Wiles. On his End Times radio show yesterday, Wiles said that “beheadings are the new norm in America and the Muslims know it,” arguing that more beheadings will take place because there has been “no outrage” over the attack in Oklahoma.

“Within a short time there will be a beheading every week in America,” he predicted.

Wiles of course, claims that he predicted the September beheading over a decade ago: “I saw this day coming in 1998 after the Lord gave me a vision of judgment in America. The Holy Spirit told me in the summer of 1998 that there will be a day in America that the imams of this country will issue a secret code to jihad and every obedient Muslim will know that he or she is obligated to carry out jihad that day and kill Americans.”

He then read from his 1998 prophetic vision, which did not include any mention of beheadings but did mention bombings, missile strikes, poisonings and biological attacks.

Pat Robertson: Obama 'Trained' To Protect Islam

Pat Robertson is outraged that the district attorney investigating the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma said that the perpetrator may have been motivated by racial animosity rather than religious extremism, finding that the assailant was seeking revenge on former coworkers whom he believed got him fired over bigoted remarks about white people.

Robertson, however, thinks he knows more about the case than the local DA, arguing on “The 700 Club” today that the government is trying to hide the fact that the culprit is a Muslim convert.

“Most murderers don’t cut off the heads of their victims but the Islamic people do,” he said, before linking the purported politically correct cover-up to President Obama: “We’ve got somebody in the White House whose father, I believe, he came from Kenya, he may have been a communist, whether he was Islamic we’re not sure, but Obama was trained, his stepfather was indeed a Muslim and they lived in Indonesia for a number of years so he’s sympathetic.”

Robertson has repeatedly suggested that Obama is a secret Muslim.

“It is a very violent religious belief and it has political ramifications as well and what they want to establish is a caliphate and the sooner we recognize what we’re dealing with — but apparently Obama refused to listen to the voices of his own intelligence chiefs,” he said, referring to the phony conservative claim that Obama is ignoring intelligence briefings.

Gina Miller: Islamist-Gay Plot Destroying America

BarbWire content editor Gina Miller is angry that James Foley’s family asked anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller to pull advertisements in New York that featured images of Foley’s execution, writing that Foley’s family are “the ones who are blasting her ads as they slavishly bow to the tenets of Muslim Sharia law.”

Miller claims extremist groups like ISIS are the true representatives of Islam, which she describes as “a satanic, militant-political ideology couched in a religion.” She adds that “Barack Obama (or whatever his name is)” has facilitated “Muslim Brotherhood operatives into his administration.”

Not only is Obama leaving “our southern border wide open to illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists,” according to Miller, but he is also bringing down the U.S. as he “decimates our military and floods it with ‘out and proud’ homosexual deviants.”

The ads are right on the money. They’re simple, common-sense declarations of the truth of what we face with hell-born Muslim conquest around the world. However, the deluded adherents to “political correctness” among us refuse to tell the truth about Islamic jihad, and instead, attack those of us who do. Rather than acknowledge the dangerous reality we face in demon-possessed Islamic drones who are hell-bent on spreading the bloody cancer of Islam, they revile the watchmen on the wall who warn of the imminent threat of this evil movement.



We see what the Muslims are doing in our nation and around the world. We see the Muslim sympathizer in the White House (who has allowed Muslim Brotherhood operatives into his administration) downplay Islamic terror in our nation, mislabeling the jihadi terror attack at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.” We have seen Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) arm and finance Islamists in the Middle East. We have seen him leave our southern border wide open to illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists. We have seen him allow our Ambassador and others to be murdered by Islamists in Benghazi. We have seen him purge our military and intelligence communities of rational reference to Islamic dangers and forbid them from monitoring mosques—all this while he decimates our military and floods it with “out and proud” homosexual deviants.

We have watched Obama set the Middle East on fire for the Islamists he favors over the ones he doesn’t. I have no idea which Islamists are the “good guys” in his warped mind, nor do I care. What little stability there was over there when he took office has been obliterated by his evil machinations.

Sentient Americans see Islam for what it is: a satanic, militant-political ideology couched in a religion. It is a disease on the face of the earth, and everywhere it exists it brings brutal, violent oppression. Telling the truth about this evil belief system is not “hatred” or “Islamophobia.” Pamela Geller’s ads are spot-on, and we need many more like her. Nowadays, wherever real truth is told, haters of truth will always spit and hiss—and lie. Such is the case with the ones who are blasting her ads as they slavishly bow to the tenets of Muslim Sharia law that stand in stark opposition to everything that the United States of America represents.

Steve Deace: Republicans Should Model Themselves After Dan Snyder

Right-wing talk show host Steve Deace thinks he knows who Republicans should start listening to and imitating: Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder.

Writing yesterday in the Washington Times, Deace argued that while “the lamestream media” tried to use Michael Sam’s decision to come out of the closet to distract from the 2012 Benghazi attack, now media pundits “decided their next faux crusade would be the long-time nickname of Washington, D.C.’s NFL franchise.”

Deace extolled Snyder as an “alpha male” who bravely “put up his own human shields with Native American ties to counteract the lamestream media’s victimology meme” and “introduced these wannabe cultural Marxists to big boy football.”

He urged “gutless Republicans” to learn from Snyder’s “ruthless” manliness: “You hear that, GOP?”

Pay attention inside the beltway, Republicans. I’m about to offer you some advice far better than what you typically get from your battalion of bratty, losing-is-in-their-DNA consultants. And at far less the cost.

Several months ago, the lamestream media was looking for another empty calorie story to feed the idiocracy, rather than reporting on IRS tyranny, Benghazi, President Obama’s declining poll numbers, and everything else that doesn’t line up with their preferred narrative. They tried not one, but two marginal pro athletes coming out as homosexual and that didn’t work. If anything, they created a backlash that made the jobs of those players even tougher. So once the Michael Sam saga petered out, they decided their next faux crusade would be the long-time nickname of Washington, D.C.’s NFL franchise.



But a funny thing happened after the lamestream media issued their fatwa against the Redskins, and tried the same playbook on Mr. Snyder that’s worked so successfully on feckless beltway Republicans for so many years.

They came up against a rarity inside our nation’s capitol — an alpha male.

Passive-aggressive might help you become speaker of the house, where the Peter Principle reigns supreme, but it doesn’t make you a billionaire tycoon. Thus, the tolerance mob finally ran into someone far more ruthless than they, who also happens to have a pot of gold at the end of his rainbow.

Mr. Snyder out-witted, out-played, and out-spent the lamestream media in this variation of the popular reality show “Survivor.” He confronted them on their own turf, beat them in social media, and even put up his own human shields with Native American ties to counteract the lamestream media’s victimology meme. In short, by playing to win and not just lose slower (as most Republicans in Washington do), Mr. Snyder introduced these wannabe cultural Marxists to big boy football. Otherwise known as the real world, where you have to earn the approval of customers — not just your pack-mentality peers. Where you actually have to be better than your competitors to make a buck — not just a subsidy living off someone else’s success.

As a result of being on the receiving end of its own bullying for a change, a lamestream media used to gutless Republicans assuming the position at the first sign of confrontation has learned that it ain’t no fun when the rabbit’s got the gun. Now they’re reeling and devolving into self-parody in a desperate attempt to salvage relevance.



Mr. Snyder called the lamestream media’s bluff, and then doubled-down and took his case to the people. You hear that, GOP?

Pat Robertson's Faith Healing Will Put Doctors Out Of Business!

Pat Robertson’s “The 700 Club” regularly features a segment called “Answers to Prayer,” in which a viewer who claims to have been healed by Robertson or one of his co-hosts shares his or her story.

Today, one viewer claimed that Robertson’s word healed her of a bacterial infection and another thanked Robertson for healing her back pains, which made her so excited that she ran around the house to celebrate.

“We don’t mean to bankrupt doctors but we’re going to take some business away from them,” Robertson joked.

Tony Perkins: 'Deadly Consequences' If Gay Rights Movement Succeeds

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has repeatedly attempted to link the actual persecution of Christians in places like Iraq and Sudan to the supposed persecution of Christians in America as a result of gay rights and Obama administration policies.

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” following an interview with Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo, Perkins spoke with a caller about the need for more “bold, courageous, unfearing” political leaders who will denounce “politically correct” opinions on topics like Islam and homosexuality.

Perkins then attempted to connect violence against Christians abroad to domestic politics: “There are correlations, Congressman Pompeo talked about this, the correlation of the persecution of the church abroad and this intolerance here at home. When we allow political correctness to choke the voices of Christians here at home, no matter what the issue is, but most prominently these days it’s over the issue of the redefinition of marriage and homosexuality, look, it’s very straightforward, it’s very clear and when we refuse to speak, it has deadly consequences.”
