Cliff Kincaid Endorses Movie Exposing Obama's 'Real Father'

Earlier this month we reported on an upcoming conference that seemed exceptionally crazy even by right-wing standards, as it plans to focus on the purported connections between Communism and Sharia law and the claim that Barack Obama’s real father is Frank Marshall Davis, the late civil rights activist and a friend of Obama’s grandfather. Conference organizer Cliff Kincaid, who also heads Accuracy In Media and America’s Survival, appeared on Secure Freedom Radio last week with Fred Grandy, the former Republican congressman and actor (‘Gopher’ from The Love Boat) who was filling in for host Frank Gaffney, to promote the summit and push the charge that Davis is Obama’s real father and still, even though he passed away in 1987, “has an influence over our President.” But this new Birther saga undermines the classical Birther conspiracy that Gaffney now pushes on Secure Freedom Radio, in which Obama’s mother travels with Obama, Sr. to Kenya (for some reason) to give birth.

Grandy: Another one of your panelists at your event next week is actually going to be trying to make the case that perhaps—and I’ve heard this rumor before—that Frank Marshall Davis was more than just a surrogate father to Barack Obama, he may well have been this guy’s real father and Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., to some degree, is merely a minor influence in this kid’s life. How much credibility do you put into that?

Kincaid: I put a lot into it now that I’ve seen Joel Gilbert’s film, it’s called Dreams from My Real Father. It’s an incredible film. He’s going to show excerpts, he’s going to talk about his research. He’s expanded upon what we and Paul Kengor have done and I think it deserves a fair hearing. Now, whether or not he was a real father or not, the fact is Frank Marshall Davis has an influence over our President and that’s the critical issue but if indeed if he was Obama’s real father and the comparison’s photos are striking then we’ve got even more of a mystery behind this guy in the Oval Office.

The Craziest Right-Wing Conference Yet

Cliff Kincaid of the conservative organizations Accuracy In Media and America’s Survival is spearheading a conference this Summer outlining the supposed connections between radical Islamists, communists, and President Obama. The National Press Club summit plans to fulfill “the late Andrew Breitbart’s promise to finally ‘vet’ the president” by exposing the “diabolical dangers of Marxism and radical Islam” and “the shocking truth about Obama and his agenda to emerge.” Speakers include Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Fund, the anti-Muslim group which gained notoriety when the NYPD used one of their films in trainings, along with Joel Gilbert, who is making a film claiming that Frank Marshall Davis is Obama’s real father. Fittingly, the website for the event is LeninAndSharia.com:

Topics include: Obama's Saudi connection, Muslim communism, the Marxist-Islamist nexus, communist exploitation of blacks, Soros funding of Marxist groups, the dangers of foreign propaganda channels like Al-Jazeera and Russia Today, and the War on Cops

• Cliff Kincaid, President, America’s Survival, Inc. Director, AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, on “Lenin and Sharia: the Diabolical Threat.”

• Paul Kengor, author of the new book, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor.

• Joel Gilbert, director, “Dreams from My Real Father,” on Frank Marshall Davis as Obama’s real father

• Konstantin Preobrazhensky, former Soviet KGB officer, on “Communists and Muslims.”

• Ryan Mauro, National Security Analyst, RadicalIslam.org / Clarion Fund, on “The War on the New York City Police Department.”

• Jeremy Segal, blogger who captured Obama ally Rep. Danny K. Davis on film discussing his acceptance of an award from the Communist Party USA.

• Larry Grathwohl, former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, on “Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and the ‘Race Course Against White Supremacy.’”

• Trevor Loudon, author, Barack Obama and the Enemies Within, on Alice Palmer, the neglected communist agent in Obama’s life

Cliff Kincaid begins Campaign to bring Glenn Beck back to Fox News

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media and America’s Survival Inc. wants Glenn Beck backed on Fox News. Called the “Bring Back Beck” campaign, Kincaid claims that George Soros forced Beck, who used his platform on Fox to air an underhandedly anti-Semitic ‘documentary’ about Soros, off the air by funding organizations that demanded Fox drop Beck from the network. Kincaid also attacked Fox News in his statement for hiring political commentators Jehmu Greene and Sally Kohn, whom he attacked for being gay, saying “lesbianism is not a lifestyle that should be promoted by a national television network.” He warned that Rupert Murdoch may soon be “turning the media giant over to his liberal son, James,” which makes it all the more necessary to “negotiate Beck’s return at the earliest possible date”:

"Fox News has been disintegrating since Soros-funded groups forced Glenn Beck off the air," declared ASI President Cliff Kincaid. "His show was replaced by a program featuring Democratic Party hack Bob Beckel, who regularly insults conservatives. It's time for Glenn Beck, now on Internet TV, to return to the cable channel so that he can continue his investigative journalism into the rapidly expanding influence of the Soros network of organizations. We urge Fox News CEO Roger Ailes to negotiate Beck's return at the earliest possible date."

Kincaid noted with alarm that Fox News has hired two left-wing feminist activists, Sally Kohn and Jehmu Greene, both of them affiliated with Jane Fonda's Women's Media Center, as paid "contributors" to the channel. "Fox is moving to the left and filling its ranks with the kind of shallow commentators we have come to associate with the little-watched cable channel MSNBC. We know that pressure from Media Matters and other Soros-funded groups is responsible for this shocking departure from the conservative message that made Fox the most popular cable channel." Soros gave Media Matters $1 million to neutralize Fox's conservative message.



Kincaid noted that the New York Times estimated that Soros gave progressive groups $860 million in 2011 alone. "This amount makes the Koch Brothers look like penny-pinchers," Kincaid added, alluding to an estimate by the New York Yorker that the libertarian billionaires have given about $100 million to conservative groups. Overall, Soros has given away over $8 billion to anti-American and far-left organizations. "It seems as though Fox News is next on his target list of acquisitions," Kincaid said, "and he is beginning to get his way."

He said left-wing groups attacking the Koch Brothers are deliberately diverting attention away from the much-greater influence of Soros, a convicted inside trader with mysterious off-shore sources of cash who is now acquiring influence over the Fox News product. "Fox should stand up to Soros," he said, "not buckle under to his financial pressure." He said this trend -- together with the reports that Rupert Murdoch, head of the Fox News parent company, News Corporation, is turning the media giant over to his liberal son, James -- is worrisome indeed.

Right Wing Round-Up

Is Fox News the New CPAC?

For months now, the Religious Right has been up in arms that gays were allowed to participate in the annual CPAC conference, claiming that it is part of an effort to 'infiltrate" and divide the conservative movement.

And now the same thing looks to be happening to Fox News as well, as Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media reports that some Fox News personalities will be attending the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association's "Headlines & Headliners" fundraiser next month ... and Peter LaBarbera sees it as proof that the network has been infiltrated by gays who are working to get Fox to destroy the "pro-family movement":

Peter LaBarbera"Conservatives across the country and pro-family people are counting on Fox to be 'fair and balanced,'" he notes. "And if Fox goes 'pro-gay,' it will be devastating to the entire pro-family movement, because there really is no alternative to Fox."

LaBarbera understands that political lobbyists are pressuring media outlets to show support for the homosexual agenda, but he points out that there is also leverage from within many media organizations.

"I'm hearing from the inside that there is gay staff at Fox [and] at least one...gay producer," the AFTAH president reports. "So, as always, you see that's sort of the role of the [NJGJA]. They have powerful journalists who are homosexuals, and they're working from the inside to push the media to be more and more pro-homosexual."

FRC’s Maginnis Blasts Obama’s “Corrupt Regime,” Wants GOP to Block DADT Repeal

Bob Maginnis, the Family Research Council’s Senior Fellow for National Security, is the latest Religious Right activist to outline a strategy on how to stop the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell from coming into effect. Maginnis previously predicted that over half a million service members would quit as a result of repeal and maintained that “America is now no better than Sodom and Gomorrah.” Now, he is joining other anti-gay leaders to push House Republicans to obstruct the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Maginnis spoke to the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow, which claimed that Obama “sodomized” the military by ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell:

Many pro-military pundits said they were sickened and angered last week when President Barack Obama ended 235 years of wholesome tradition by signing the bill that will effectively sodomize the U.S. military. One of those specialists is Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis (USA-Ret.), who was part of the military working group that helped craft the 1993 homosexual service ban that the lame-duck Congress and President Obama have now overturned.

"You have a very corrupt regime running the country," he laments. But he expects there to be a backlash when the 112th Congress replaces the lame-duck body that was repudiated by the American people last month.

"Given that [Republicans] don't have the majority in the Senate, all they can do is drastically slow down the process. And they can always withhold funding through appropriations because the House is the one that has the purse strings," Maginnis explains. "So they can make it very uncomfortable for [Democrats] to spend the money to change the personnel systems, to draft new policies [and] to put together new 'sensitivity' [training] programs."

The defense analyst adds that the new, more conservative Congress has every right to do whatever it takes to reverse what the president has done.

He is not alone in the Religious Right in calling for action to thwart the recently-signed repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell: Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media suggested that the incoming House Republican majority could block the repeal, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver demanded that the House GOP “defund any implementation of this law” and states pass laws banning gays from serving openly in their state’s National Guard, and Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily called for service members to leave over the policy and “let the politicians cobble together a military of social deviants if they think they can.”

Donnelly and Kincaid Keep Up “Draft” Drumbeat after Senate Passes DADT Repeal

After expressing hope that efforts to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would ultimately fail, Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness (who, by the way, is not close to being an expert on the issue) told Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid that the draft is on its way once DADT is scrapped. According to Donnelly, the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell “could put remaining troops in greater danger, and break the All-Volunteer Force.”

Donnelly joins other right wing activists like Tony Perkins, David Bossie, Frank Gaffney, and Bryan Fischer, in forecasting the return of conscription as a result of the repeal. In 2006, Donnelly also predicted that allowing gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly will lead to “forcible sodomy,” “introducing erotic factors,” and the proliferation of “HIV positivity.”

Kincaid, though, held out hope that the incoming House Republican majority and Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA), the designated Chair of the Armed Services Committee, would be able to block repeal:

McKeon had told reporters that he wanted to hold hearings that would include rank-and-file service members along with military leaders. “I would really like to hear from battlefield commanders,” McKeon said. “I would like to hear from battalion commanders, I would like to hear from company commanders on the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq to see what their feelings are.”



So will Congress approve the changes, knowing that they could result in the return of the military draft?

As the Times indicates, the specific language of the bill is that the repeal must be “consistent with the standards of military readiness, military effectiveness, unit cohesion, and recruiting and retention of the Armed Forces.”

The burden is on the gay rights lobby to prove that the changes would have no negative effect on any of the above. How can they prove such a thing when the Pentagon has already concluded that the change is risky and faces opposition from as many as 60 percent of our combat troops?

But the Pentagon’s own “Comprehensive Review of the Issues Associated with the Repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” found, “In the key areas of military readiness, unit effectiveness, and unit cohesion the risks were all deemed to be LOW” and that “the change in culture and environment in warfighting units will be minimal.” 69% of respondents already claimed to have knowingly served with a gay or lesbian soldier, and of them “92% stated that the unit’s ‘ability to work together’ was ‘very good,’ ‘good,’ or ‘neither good nor poor.’”

But Donnelly and Kincaid continue to discount and distort the clear evidence from the Pentagon's study that the repeal of DADT will have little effect at all on the military, and claim that unless Republicans belatedly block the repeal, a draft is imminent.

  • Bryan Fischer continues to rail against the DADT vote.
  • Matt Barber continues to rail against the SPLC.
  • NOM wants questions about marriage asked at the RNC debate.
  • Cliff Kincaid is set to become the director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, presumably so he can write long investigations about how gays plan to infect everyone with HIV-tainted blood.
  • I genuinely hope that Michele Bachmann decides to run for the Senate because I find it unlikely that the state the elected Paul Wellstone would ever elect someone like her.
  • Finally, the quote of the day from Gary Bauer: "It would be wrong to suggest that by stirring up class resentment the Left caused any of these crimes. What seems fairly clear, however, is that the Left is turning the anger and frustration that many struggling Americans feel about the economy into resentment against those who have succeeded."

Cliff Kincaid Calls for a Re-Establishment of HUAC and a Return to McCarthyism

Accuracy In Media's Cliff Kincaid says that now the Republicans are set to take control of the House in the next session of Congress, they are get their heads out of the sand and finally come to grips with the fact that "agent of influence for the international Marxist movement [is] occupying the oval office."

As such, they need to create a new House Internal Security Committee (aka House Un-American Activities Committee) and investigate the Obama administration of "un-America activities":

Some conservatives have belatedly discovered that Obama has socialist and anti-colonial views. But that is not even half the story. The most important part of the story remains to be investigated by the FBI and, hopefully, by a new House Internal Security Committee. Re-establishment of this committee will demonstrate that the new Congress means business and that it won’t resort to politics as usual and compromise.

All of this requires that the new Congress takes its responsibilities seriously, not only on fiscal issues, but on matters involving the national security and moral integrity of the United States. The liberals will raise a hue and cry, and some conservatives may balk, but it is mandatory and necessary to begin addressing what an old congressional committee used to call “un-American activities” at the highest levels of the U.S. Government.

I guess I should also point out that Rep. Steve King thinks this "is a good process and I would support it."

DADT Defenders Desperate Last Stand: Keep Ban Since Intel Leaker Was Gay

If you thought that the arguments opposing the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell weren’t desperate enough, many on the Right are now suggesting that the ban on gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military should be kept in place because the alleged Wikileaks-leaker is gay. A New York Times profile on intelligence analyst Bradley Manning’s “desperation for acceptance — or delusions of grandeur” found that much of his “social life was defined by the need to conceal his sexuality under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and he wasted brainpower fetching coffee for officers.” The Times went on to report that “even as he professed a perhaps inflated sense of purpose, he called himself ‘emotionally fractured’ and a ‘wreck’ and said he was ‘self-medicating like crazy.’”

For the right wing media, the story wasn’t that Manning had a history of being victimized and excluded because of his sexual orientation, but that as a result of his sexual orientation he became a traitor. Ann Coulter suggests that Manning was a “narcissistic hothouse flower” and the “poster boy for Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”:

With any luck, Bradley's court-martial will be gayer than a Liza Minelli wedding. It could be the first court-martial in U.S. history to feature ice sculptures and a "Wizard of Oz"-themed gazebo. "Are you going to Bradley's court-martial? I hear Patti LaBelle is going to sing!"

Maybe there's a reason gays have traditionally been kept out of the intelligence services, apart from the fact that closeted gay men are easy to blackmail. Gays have always been suspicious of that rationale and perhaps they're right.



Bradley's friends told the Times they suspected "his desperation for acceptance -- or delusions of grandeur" may have prompted his document dump.

Let's check our "Gay Profile at a Glance" and ... let's see ... desperate for acceptance ... delusions of grandeur ... yep, they're both on the gay subset list!



Look at the disaster one gay created under our punishing "don't ask, don't tell" policy. What else awaits America with the overturning of a policy that was probably put there for a reason (apart from being the only thing Bill Clinton ever did that I agreed with)?

Liberals don't care. Their approach is to rip out society's foundations without asking if they serve any purpose.

The Family Research Council has also jumped in, commenting:

Now that the enemy has access to American intelligence, our mission in the Middle East may be irreparably harmed--all because President Obama is less concerned with winning the war than he is with winning the far-Left's approval. Unfortunately for all of us, Manning's betrayal painfully confirms what groups like FRC have argued all along: the instability of the homosexual lifestyle is a detriment to military readiness. By foisting this agenda on our soldiers, the White House is not only jeopardizing the future of national security but compromising its present.

WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah said that “the system of moral blindness and the disconnect from common sense,” which allowed Manning to serve as a closeted gay man in the first place, “made [the leak] inevitable.” Cliff Kincaid of the conservative Accuracy In Media blasted news outlets for not covering Manning’s sexual orientation enough for his liking, and claims that Manning’s sexuality and support for gay rights show that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell doesn’t go far enough and should become more stringent. Kincaid writes:

Now, because of the obvious mishandling of this homosexual ticking time bomb, it appears that the United States, its soldiers, and relations with countries in the region will pay the price. Lives-and a war on terrorism in Afghanistan-could be lost.

The revelations of Manning's openly pro-homosexual conduct suggest that a more liberal Department of Defense policy, in deference to the wishes of the Commander-in-Chief, had already been in effect and has now backfired in a big way.



The dramatic revelations about Manning's circle of friends and associates suggest that, rather than repeal the homosexual exclusion policy, as Obama is demanding, the prohibition on homosexuals should have been more strictly enforced and that it should be strengthened today.

As the Right tries to score political points by saying that due to Manning’s individual problems and turmoil, all gay and lesbian servicemembers should be viewed as disgruntled, treacherous, unstable, and disloyal people. And, the say, rather than dismantle Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, which produces extreme and troubling pressures on closeted soldiers, the policy should become more severe and oppressive.

Kincaid Demands Proof of Obama's Baptism

The other day I wrote a post highlighting a piece by Accuracy In Media's Cliff Kincaid in which he seemingly demanded proof that President Obama had ever been baptized and joked that maybe this would become the next Bither-like campaign.

But while I may have been joking, Kincaid most certainly was not, as he's now written another piece laying out a Birtheresque conspiracy about Obama's suspect claims regarding his baptism:

AIM also wants accountability. What AIM has done is quote directly from Obama’s books about his spiritual and political journey. We have pointed out that Obama’s claim about his own baptism, as reported in his second memoir, The Audacity of Hope, is subject to interpretation because of the lack of detail about how and when he was baptized and by whom. It appears, based on information provided by Obama’s own church, that Obama was describing how he became a member of that church.

Obama’s claim of being baptized is presented in the context of discussing the fact that he was not born and baptized a Christian. He describes his Muslim father and grandfather and attendance in a Muslim school as he was growing up. Obama acknowledges that, before he joined Wright’s church, some people regarded him as a Muslim. Wright himself dabbled in Islam before establishing his church, Obama concedes.

The proof of the baptism claim is precisely what is lacking in his book. There is no need or demand for a baptismal certificate, but there is no detail about the ceremony, other than talking about a walk down an aisle and a profession of faith, and no information about who performed the baptism and who attended. Traditionally, water is used in such a ceremony. There is no reference to water in Obama’s book.

...

[W]hat is being questioned in not his faith but the veracity of his claim in his book, published as he was preparing his presidential run, that he underwent a baptism. Was this claim inserted into the book to make Obama more politically palatable to the American electorate who would be naturally suspicious about what the media called his “unorthodox” religious background?

Some Christians claim that baptism is not required to become a Christian. Obama could have claimed that he became a Christian in Wright’s church through a simple profession of faith and that a formal baptism was not required. Instead, however, he claimed to have undergone the procedure ... [Obama's] claims about a baptism cannot be taken at face value.

  • FRC hails conservatives in the House for their resolution condemning Judge Walker's Prop 8 decision.
  • Is the Handel vs Deal race for Governor in Georgia really a proxy war between Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee?
  • Cliff Kincaid laments that some conservatives are willing to associate with gays, saying that "it "looks like surrender or suicide to me."
  • On a related note, Peter LaBarbera begs Ann Coulter not to speak at GOProud's Homocon 2010 conference, to which GOProud responded by telling LaBarbera that he really needs to spend "less time obsessing about gay sex and hanging out at gay Pride events."

Peter LaBarbera's Warped Understanding of Civility

It seems that Peter LaBarbera is rather upset with me for saying that his upcoming "truth academy" was going to be "the gay-hatingest thing you have ever seen":

Oftentimes when activists on the Left have no evidence that something they disagree with is actually ”hateful,” they just label as such anyway, and then repeat themselves ad nauseam so that we’ll all get the message that said conservative activity is, well, “hateful.” Here is People for the American Way (PFAW) “Senior Fellow” Kyle Mantyla’s trenchant analysis of AFTAH’s Truth Academy curriculum:

“Peter LaBarbera has unveiled the instructor list and official curriculum for his upcoming three day anti-gay hatefest/”truth academy” … and it is pretty much going to be the gay-hatingest thing you have ever seen.”

Wow. “Gay-hatingest.” Reactionary liberals are expanding their smear-term lexicon. Seriously, though, most people on the Left are not quite willing, yet, to define anyone who disagrees with homosexuality as “hateful” — although they might call them “homophobic” (an artificial construct whose elastic definition has evolved to meet the needs of pro-”gay” liberals). I’m sure there are exceptions, but I suspect that most “gay”-affirming people would not automatically label anyone who believes that homosexuality is immoral — or that homosexual sex is unnatural – as “haters.”

LaBarbera apparently operates under the belief that opposition to all things gay which claims to be rooted in Judeo-Christian morality cannot possibly be considered hateful:

Morality is not “hate” and defending the historic Judeo-Christian sexual ethic is not “bigotry.” Homosexuality is wrong, and a controversial moral and religious issue involving behavior ... In a free society, we debate moral issues, and we discuss public health issues arising from dangerous behaviors. Does PFAW hold that it is OK to crusade for acceptance of homosexuality, but “un-American” and ”hateful” to oppose it civilly?

Maybe “Senior Fellow” Kyle, who edits PFAW’s “Right-Wing Watch” blog, and his pro-homosexual allies can explain it for us: Is every American who opposes homosexuality hateful — or just those who defend that position in public? When does moral disagreement become “hate”?

Civilly?  Is that how LaBarbera thinks his hand-picked line-up of "instructors" has engaged in the public debate? 

- Cliff Kincaid claims that gays are out to destory our military with disease-tainted blood.

- Laurie Higgins says Christians have to fight gays just like they fought Nazis.

- Rena Lindevaldsen has worked tirelessly representing a woman who fled the country rather than allow her former lesbian partner to see their daughter.

- Robert Knight comared gay marriage to Pearl Harbor.

- The only reason anyone even knows the name Ryan Sorba is because he launched into an anti-gay rant at CPAC.

- And Matt Barber is the sort of person who says there is nothing acceptable about "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it 'love'" and whose career, from day one, has been rooted in his virulent animosity toward gays.

And Peter LaBarber is the man who personally invited all of these activists to come a "teach" at his conference - and he chose them specifically because of their unabashed militant hostility toward gays.
