Ben Carson: Obama May Be 'Guilty Of Treason'

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson appeared on Newsmax TV yesterday, where he criticized President Obama's handling of the fight over Department of Homeland Security funding.

While Democrats and some Republicans want to pass a clean funding bill for the department, many conservatives, including Carson, want to use the DHS legislation to block the president's executive actions on immigration. Carson told host J.D. Hayworth, a former Republican congressman, that if Obama decides to "stand in the way, particularly to things that are vital to the security of this country, then I think we can start talking about treason."

"If things are done that are contrary to the security of this country, whoever does them is guilty of treason," Carson said.

Arizona Congressman Suggests Obama Is Faking War On ISIS

Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., is joining other Republicans in expressing doubts that President Obama actually wants to defeat the ISIS terrorist group, telling the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins yesterday that he is wary of voting for the Authorization for the Use of Military Force because he fears Obama has no intention to fight the so-called Islamic State, also called ISIL.

Salmon said in an interview on “ Washington Watch” that Obama doesn’t want to defeat ISIS because he is afraid of upsetting Iran, which is currently bombing ISIS forces in Iraq.

“This president, I believe, does not want to do anything to make Iran mad, and so I think if he did what it takes to topple Assad and destroy ISIL, it could upset his applecart,” Salmon said. “I don’t believe that the president really wants to prosecute a war that would truly destroy ISIL, I don’t think he has any intention of doing that it. I think he wants to micromanage his generals to the point that it’s a political front, it is not a real prosecution of an effort to destroy ISIL.”

Paranoia-Rama: Gay Armageddon, Forced Abortions And Net Neutrality Myths

A group of GOP politicians, including two likely presidential candidates, have decided to appear in a documentary with anti-gay radicals accusing the equality movement of trying to ban religion. Such politicians already kowtow to extreme voices like Rush Limbaugh and the anti-government ideologues at Fox News, so it makes sense that they are now joining together to make absurd claims about the supposed dangers of gay rights in America.

Sandy Rios: 'The Real Experts' Know Evolution Has Been 'Disproven'

American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios is upset that media commentators like George Will are mocking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for refusing to say this week whether he believes in evolution. After all, Rios explained on her radio show today, “science has done nothing but disprove the theory of evolution.”

“There is no scientific evidence” to substantiate evolution, she said, at least according to “the real experts.” So why has this stunning revelation that the foundational theory behind modern biology has been refuted not percolated through the scientific community? Well, Rios explained, that’s because evolution has become a sacred, religious tenet.

“Evolution has become the religion of the elite,” Rios said. “It’s a religion to the [level of] fanaticism of what they would say was the people at the Scopes monkey trial, the Christians waving their Bibles who were not really thinking through the facts, they were just outraged because it was against God’s law. The truth of the matter is that the evolutionists like George Will, waving their evolutionary theory, have become as rabid and unreasoned as what they accuse the Scopes monkey religionists of doing to Darwin during that time. It has become a religion. Science has disproven so much of evolution…. These guys are wrong, Scott Walker is right.”

Rick Wiles: Muslim 'Avengers' Will Destroy America Thanks To Abortion Rights And Obamacare

On Wednesday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles invited Dr. Erwin Lutzer, pastor of Chicago’s Moody Church, to speak about the threat of radical Islamists to America’s security. After Wiles wondered why “the far-left is in an alliance with jihadist Islam,” Lutzer said the “the far-left and jihadists are in cahoots” because both groups are bent on “destroying capitalism” and seeking the “destruction of Christianity.”

Wiles added that Muslim immigration to the U.S. and Europe is “part of the judgment” of God for abortion rights. “It’s like the Muslims are the avengers who are being sent in to avenge for the deaths of innocent babies,” he said.

Lutzer later explained that Obamacare is helping too many people gain health coverage, and as a result the “administration is encouraging Islamic doctors from all over the world to come to the United States.”

Since Obamacare is pushing doctors out of the practice and abortion rights are slowing population growth, Lutzer said, the U.S. now has “huge immigrant populations from the Muslim countries.”

Mat Staver: Homosexuality Is 'Very Deadly And Damaging'

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel stopped by VCY America’s “Crosstalk” yesterday to discuss his group’s attempt to stop judges from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Alabama. Staver praised Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for flouting the ruling of a federal court on the matter and lashed out at the Supreme Court for rejecting Alabama’s appeal of the marriage case, saying that Alabama “does not have to obey” any future Supreme Court ruling “that there’s some invented right to same-sex marriage and therefore you can’t have marriage as a union of a man and a woman.”

“That is so far off the beaten path, so far removed from the Constitution that it is no rule of law,” Staver said. “There is a limit to what the court can do, there is a limit to what the people can stomach. If that court were to say, the laws of gravity were fine for the founders but we have progressed, we’re a progressive society and we think they have changed, you would say, ‘That’s nuts, have they lost their mind?’ The question is: Have they lost their mind by saying there’s a constitutional right for same-sex marriage?”

“Have they literally lost their mind?” he asked.

Staver added that legalizing same-sex marriage is “harmful” to children because it tells them that “your moms and dads are absolutely meaningless.”

“Why would we take a relationship of same-sex unions, same-sex sexual activity, protect it and elevate it when we know that it’s a very harmful and it’s a very deadly and damaging relationship?” Staver asked. “Why would we elevate some kind of bad relationship, bad activity, dangerous and harmful, unhealthy activity to a protected status?”

GOP Rep.: Gay Marriage Harms Children, Economy And Society

Yesterday on “Washington Watch,” Rep. Tim Huelskamp called on Congress to hold a vote on his Marriage Protection Amendment, which would impose a national ban on same-sex marriage, as a way to pressure the Supreme Court against deciding in favor of marriage equality. The Kansas Republican told Family Research Council President Tony Perkins that federal courts created “chaos” by striking down bans on same-sex marriage and now “folks are confused about what a marriage is.”

Huelskamp said that if “we don’t protect the traditional basis for marriage, it harms everyone, particularly our young children.” He also agreed with Perkins that legalizing gay marriage will “discourage family formation” and undermine the black community.

“So now is the time when the courts are trying to rule and might decide to redefine or undefine marriage, it is critical not just for individuals and for families but for society as a whole,” Huelskamp said. “At the end of the day, it’s children that are hurt.”

The congressman lamented that “our founders never envisioned a society which would reject a basic understanding of nature” and warned that marriage equality will harm America’s “economic wellbeing.”

Benham Brothers: Satan Behind Homosexuality, Gay Marriage

Jason and David Benham have been making the rounds of conservative media outlets this week to promote their new book, Whatever The Cost, which gives their opinion on losing their planned HGTV reality show after being exposed as extreme anti-gay activists.

For example, today the twin brothers stopped by “The 700 Club,” where they posed like so with Pat Robertson:

During an appearance today on “AFA Today,” the daytime talk show of the American Family Association, the Benham brothers once again linked Satan to the gay community.

David Benham told host Kevin McCullough that “America has systemically removed God from society, starting in the public schools. He’s been removed from business, he’s been removed from every vestige of society. Do we have any inclination that he’s not going to be removed from one of the three institutions that was in working order before sin entered the world — work, Sabbath and marriage? Those three things God set in place before sin entered the world; Satan is coming after all of them.”

After McCullough asked the brothers why “activists, primarily of the sexual nature,” criticized them, David Benham said that “Satan wants to bring a false intimacy” through things like gay relationships. Jason Benham suggested that Satan is behind both gay relationships and abortion rights because he hates reproduction.

Jason Benham: He made man — He didn’t have to make man, but He did — and He made man in his image. And then he says, ‘You know it’s not good for man to be alone,’ and then he makes woman. Because he knows a man and a woman together is a perfect physical picture of what happens in the spirit, that when God comes into us and his life explodes into us and then out of us flows the product of God and us and our perfect DNA mix. It’s the same thing that happens in physical intimacy between a man and a woman, and Satan is a big phony, he’s a big counterfeit. He’s always going to attack sex because the goal of sex is life, it’s life in your marriage, it’s physical life with children, it’s offspring, and the Devil is making war against the offspring of the woman, which means that the Devil hates life. Jesus came to bring life, the Devil, I come to destroy life.
