Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 10/10/14

  • Jan Markell is "disgusted" that Sen. Al Franken appears poised to win re-election: "Franken is nothing but a stooge for Barack Obama. I believe his voting record is either 99 percent or 100 percent. He's a useful idiot for Barack Obama, and conservative people here in Minnesota are thoroughly disgusted. But he will win again because this is the People's Republic of Minnesota."
  • Oh no! "30-Year Muslim Plan To Control America Has Six Years To Go."
  • Is anyone surprised that "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is an anti-vaxxer?
  • Malala Yousafzai has become the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, so presumably Glenn Beck and crew will have a good laugh over the absurd idea that anyone has any idea who she is.
  • Finally, FRC prays, once again, against gay marriage: "Father, please build faith in your people to pray and believe for an ultimate victory for biblical marriage in America. Those who do not know you are blind. Send sweeping revival among your churches and an awakening of biblical faith that saturates those who do not know you, in every 'mountain' of culture in our nation - bring heartfelt repentance and a recommitment to the things that are important to you - including marriage. May our judges and legislators courageously defend marriage; and shake off the curse they are bringing upon our nation. Cause our highest court to grant Idaho a permanent stay; to review these and other marriage cases and to affirm the constitutional right of states to decide who is qualified to marry under their own state law."

  • Speaker John Boehner does not seem too concerned about the effort by anti-gay Religious Right groups to mobilize voters against gay Republican candidate Carl DeMaio.
  • Glenn Beck doesn't understand why nobody believes his new peace, love, and understanding message: "Why can’t we stop calling each other names? I know this is hard for many people to swallow from me. I do not claim to be perfect. In fact far from it. But everyone needs to start somewhere. I am trying to change my ways and be a better man. It begins with listening to others and not claiming to have all of the answers. It begins with humility and a willingness to admit to being wrong."
  • It is amazing that Dinesh D'Souza is actually treated as a serious intellectual by those on the Right.
  • Jan Markell does not have much faith in government efforts to convince American Muslims not to go overseas to fight jihad: "This is liberalism run amok. When liberalism gets away with these kinds of things, eventually there's going to be carnage on a mass scale, because they are willing to look the other way because of political correctness."
  • Gina Loudon warns that "the Democrats need the illegal vote to win in 2016, because they can’t win with only the vote of the American people. And they will win at any cost, even if it means Americans are infected with Third-World diseases ... This is no longer about Republicans versus Democrats. The midterm elections are about life versus death. This election and the 2016 election have become about one party that respects freedom and life, and one that thinks you are not only stupid, but expendable."

Bachmann: ISIS Car Bombings Will Bring Down America, Thanks To Obama

While appearing on the Saturday broadcast of the End Times radio show “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” Rep. Michele Bachmann predicted that ISIS members are planning imminent attacks inside the U.S. and will make American cities experience levels of violence seen in Iraqi cities like Baghdad.

After arguing that ISIS members are entering the country as they illegally cross the southern border and “march through our United States airports,” Bachmann made the false claim that “President Obama released Baghdadi,” referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. In fact, he was released during the Bush administration.

“I don’t want to see the car bombings and all of the havoc and chaos coming to the United States that we see in Baghdad,” she said. “Since we have the Islamic State come into the United States, we’ll see a wave of car bombings and bombings that occur here in the United States that would begin the process of destabilization to bring them to the point of defeating us here in the United States.”

Ex-Gay Pastor: 'Anyone With A Brain' Realizes Gay People Shouldn't Be Treated Equally

On this weekend’s edition of “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” ex-gay activist Stephen Bennett joined Linda Harvey in denouncing the “miniscule” group of “militant activists who are trying to turn this country upside down” by advocating for LGBT equality.

“They’re basically marching in with their fist shaking, saying, ‘We demand equality, homosexuality is equivalent to heterosexuality.’ Folks, it is not, anyone with a brain realizes it is not equal,” he said. “People have strayed so far away from God’s design of marriage. Marriage isn’t to be decided by a government or judges or courts, this is God, God is the one who designed this.”

Linda Harvey: LGBT Rights Ushering In 'The End Times Or The End Of America — Or Both'

Mission America’s Linda Harvey appeared on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she warned that LGBT rights are pushing the world into the End Times.

After discussing the purported dangers that same-sex marriage presents to children, Harvey said that “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America—or both.”

Harvey also called on cities to ban LGBT pride parades: “We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades. I think they are a blight on the community, they communicate exactly the wrong message: that homosexuality and gender change is totally fine, that it’s a big joke, because there are men dressed in feather boas, lipstick and heels in these parades, this is such a raw message to our children especially. My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned and we have every reason to do so, there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief.”

She also criticized anti-gay leaders for not standing up more aggressively to LGBT-affirming Episcopalian and United Church of Christ pastors, arguing that they need to rebuff “vicious” LGBT rights advocates.

“Pastors are going to have to realize this has a huge impact on America, on our culture and on children,” she said.

“Everything we pass regarding acceptance and embrace of homosexuality or same-sex marriage, it’s not just some little population over there, it is being mandated in our schools and now in our courts and now in our workplaces that you have to embrace this and not just embrace this, you have to honor it or else we’re going to punish you.”

Conservative Activist Warns Sex-Ed Is A Plot To Increase Democratic Votes By Destroying Marriages

This weekend, “Understanding the Times” host Jan Markell spoke with Minnesota conservative activist Marjorie Holsten about Common Core, which Holtsen claims contains sex-ed material so graphic that it actually violates obscenity laws in several states.

The only reason schools would teach sex-ed, Holsten explains, is that educators are playing the long game in trying to increase the number of Democratic voters: “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children? If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse. And so if you have somebody who can’t bond, they’re not going to have a stable marriage. When you have unstable, broken households, how do they vote? Democrat. So this has a very evil underlying intent.”

Markell also warned that lessons about violence towards African Americans and Native Americans in early American history, along with curricula on child labor laws and the environment, smack of “liberal bias.”

Holsten even predicted that teachers will be punished if they do not “teach that Obama’s the messiah.”

Markell: Second graders are probably going to read about Cesar Chavez, as if seven-year-olds know anything about Cesar Chavez; sixth graders are going to read about Industrial Revolution, child labor; you just indicated that global warming is going to be part of the agenda.

Holsten: Oh yeah. When you read these reading lists, they are designed not only to indoctrinate but to also create in children an absolute hatred of reading.

Markell: The liberal bias seems to be what comes out at me and the fact that conservatives and probably Christians are going to be seen as the mortal enemy, dangerous, whatever. I heard someone say that our founding fathers are probably going to be labeled as racists, that early settlers of America were the persecutors of the indigenous people and again conservatives will be probably painted as a dangerous category of people.



Holsten: One of the insidious things about Common Core is that teachers get their raises and get their tenure based on how the students do on the test, so if a teacher does not teach something that for a Christian teacher would be absolutely repugnant to their values, the children are not going to do well on this test. If the teacher doesn’t teach that Obama’s the messiah, the children aren’t going to answer that question as desired by the Common Core grading system and so the teacher might not be able to retain her grade. So really we need an uprising.

Jan Markell Fears Yoga Is Turning America Into Nazi Germany

End Times radio broadcaster Jan Markell is not only convinced that President Obama is bringing Nazism to America, but also thinks that yoga will transform the US into a Nazi-like state.

At Markell’s “Understanding the Times” conference [PDF] in Minneapolis this weekend — where a Holocaust survivor at the center of a new WorldNetDaily film repeatedly likened Obama to Adolf Hitler — Markell warned that yoga is undermining Christianity, paving the way for Nazism.

Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, with its messianic characterizations – the photographs where a halo was cast around Obama’s head, the worship-like adulation from crowds – gave Holocaust survivor Anita Dittman nightmares.

About Adolf Hitler.



A 20-minute preview of the film, which was produced by WND Founder, Editor and CEO Joseph Farah and directed by WND Films Vice President George Escobar, premiered at the conference where Dittman revealed her concerns for America.

Dittman said her nightmares were triggered by the left’s gushing adoration of Obama as a perceived savior.



Liberals’ blind idolization of Obama mirrored Germany’s hypnotic fascination with Hitler, Dittman said of the racist tyrant whose vitriolic rhetoric dehumanized the Jewish people as a prelude to his attempts at total annihilation.



The state of America’s churches also concerns Dittman, who said German churches fell away from the Bible before Hitler came into power.

She said many American churches are likewise walking away from the truth of Scripture, turning from biblical truths and opening the door to deception.

“That’s how Hitler got into the churches,” she warned.

Conference host Olive Tree Ministries Director Jan Markell agreed.

She also cited comparisons between Nazi Germany and America during the conference, including the country adopting socialized medicine, banning prayer from school and a growing fascination with mystical spirituality.

She said Hitler was fascinated with mysticism, because “he knew it would crumble the Christian faith,” and warned that Christian churches in America are likewise trying spiritual traps like walking the labyrinth, “Christian” yoga and contemplative prayer.

'End Times' Show Blames UFO And Alien Sightings On Satan

On Saturday, right-wing broadcaster Jan Markell uncovered yet another purported sign of the End Times: UFO sightings.

Mark Hitchock, the author of many End Times-themed books such as Blood Moons Rising, The Late Great United States and The End, told Markell that “unexplainable” UFO sightings are “demonic forces that are passing themselves off as some kind of extraterrestrial beings to draw and distract people’s attention away from God.”

“I think it’s very possible that these kinds of things also could be setting people up for various kinds of delusion in the End Times,” Hitchock said. “Demonic materialization disguised as UFOs or extraterrestrials or whatever that may be I think is just another one of Satan’s tactics, especially as we draw nearer to the End Times to deceive and delude and frighten and confuse and mislead people. I really believe that’s going to maybe even be heightened as the End Times draw near.”

Religious Right Pundits Claim The Phony Internet Scandal Will Lead To The End Times

It is pretty incredible how a right-wing conspiracy theory can continue to have legs even after it has been thoroughly debunked. Take the case of GOP congressmen and conservative activists crying foul over the Obama administration’s announcement of a sixteen year plan to transfer oversight of the Internet from the federal government to a nonprofit backed by the US Department of Commerce.

Critics warned the move would give control of the Internet to China, Russia and Islamic countries, but experts pointed out that the decision actually represented a setback for the Chinese and Russian governments, which wanted the Obama administration to instead transfer oversight to a United Nations-led panel.

Despite the fact the Obama administration actually rejected efforts to give more authority to a UN-backed group, right-wing pundits still insist that President Obama is empowering the UN panel.

On Understating The Times this weekend, hosts Jan Markell and Larry Kutzler were joined by Eric Barger, who thinks that Harry Potter and The Walking Dead are helping the Antichrist gain power, and all three agreed that the phony Internet scandal is a demonic plot that will bring about the End Times.

Barger attacked President Obama for the non-existent move to hand over oversight of the Internet to the UN, warning that it will lead to the arrival of the Antichrist and censorship of Christian radio outlets.

This will be a great tool for Antichrist to be able to shut off communications between people so that people won’t know what’s going on around the world and we’re seeing a microcosm of it right now just ahead of us if Obama gets his wishes to be able to turn the Internet over to an international body.



If the UN or a body like that would get a hold of the Internet then could they theoretically make it illegal for us to put our podcast on so that others around the world would be able to hear what we had to say? Would it be illegal for you and I and many, many others to write their newsletters and put them on the Internet to warn people about what is happening around us and to preach the Gospel faithfully, including speaking out against Islam? So you think about those points and you understand that this is a very, very perilous thing that Obama is proposing to do.

Not content with pushing just one discredited conspiracy theory, Barger also promoted debunked claims about Obama allowing INTERPOL to “kidnap” US citizens.

Kutzler said that the phony Internet scandal will lead to the 666 mark of the beast and one world government, while Markell warned it will create an “Antichrist system.”

Barger: When we make statements that Obama is slowly but surely, line upon line, dismantling the country, that is not an overstatement folks. And for those of you who would say ‘wait a second, why don’t you guys just preach the Gospel, get out of politics?’ Take a look around and see what that got us when that thinking came in, we need to be plugged in and involved. How many people listening right now don’t even know that Obama in 2009 signed an executive order to give INTERPOL the right to come into our country and to literally kidnap people and take them outside our country and try them elsewhere? He took out all the restrictions that President Reagan put on INTERPOL and he took those things out and gave them carte blanche to roam around our country and to look for whomever they want to to take elsewhere, to try and then convict of crimes. That’s the kind of thing that is going on and without the Internet, we would never ever have known about it.

Markell: I think we are in a kumbaya world right now and some think we’re all going to get along. Folks, you saw Vladimir Putin move into Crimea, move into Ukraine, who knows where he’s going next. This is not a nice world right now, it is not a safe world right now.

Barger: By the way Jan, Putin called for the Internet to be controlled by the UN. This goes on and on, whose side is Obama on I’d like to know?

Kutzler: I think some of this will all come to past because they’re going to sell us a bill of goods to say if they control it, they’ll have security issues in place, no more security theft or identity theft, and I think that’s something we have to be very careful of. I don’t believe they’re going to control things just for the sake of control, they’re going to control things and move it more into what Revelation 13 has to say about that one world government, that 666, where you cannot buy or sell without the number. To me that spells Internet.

Markell: Absolutely. He’s absolutely right. This is Antichrist system.

How 'Harry Potter,' 'Twilight' & 'The Walking Dead' Are Paving The Way For The Antichrist

On Saturday’s edition of Understanding the Times, End Times radio broadcaster Jan Markell hosted Eric Barger of “Take a Stand! Ministries,” who warned that occult influences in the culture are paving the way for the Antichrist.

Barger specifically cited Harry Potter, Twilight and The Walking Dead as reasons that the Antichrist may soon materialize and attain global power:

Barger: The occult has now become normal. We have, not just the mummy, Frankenstein, the werewolf, today we have Christians defending Harry Potter. One of the biggest shocks to me when I wrote Entertaining Spirits Unaware and we first began to work on that manuscript and I started talking about it, this is about fifteen years ago when I began speaking about it, was how many Christians —I thought it was a no-brainer — that if Christians read the Bible they would understand that we are not to endorse witchcraft and virtually everything that Deuteronomy 18 says for us to stay away from.

But instead, so many letters came in my direction, I put an addendum in Entertaining Spirits Unaware — a 33,000 word addendum was put in that book to update it — I put in letter after letter that we got from people that started out, ‘I am a Christian but,’ and they’d begin to explain why I was wrong about Harry Potter and why there was nothing wrong with Twilight. Now of course we have The Walking Dead, we have the zombies craze.

This is the stuff that’s desensitizing people, preparing them for the supernatural works of the Antichrist when he stands on planet Earth and fakes being Jesus and the world around us is being conditioned to these things right now. You can hear in my voice the urgency that I have about this because we are watching the entire world be conditioned. God help us that the church that listens is not going to be conditioned about these things.

Markell: You have a huge amen coming from me.

A Caliphate From Sea To Shining Sea

End Times broadcaster Jan Markell believes that a new Muslim-American coalition that plans to encourage civic participation in the Muslim community and combat extremism is part of a plan to build a Caliphate “from sea to shining sea.”

She told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today that Muslim-American groups represent “forces of evil” that “can’t stand America,” warning that Muslim-Americans will “vote for radical leftists” in order to “take over” America.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says it shouldn't surprise anyone that most Americans don't trust those groups. "They've got a track record which shows, number one, they can't stand America," she says. "They say that they love America, but we all know that that's just blatantly false."

USCMO, however, identifies as one of its "challenges" an external "vociferous cabal of extremists [that] increasingly maligns Islam to turn America dangerously against itself" – and the need to counter "the falsifiers seeking to mislead and betray American society ...."

In contrast, Markell maintains some members of USCMO want to establish a Muslim caliphate "from sea to shining sea" – and will not rest until they achieve their goal.



According to a recent report by The Washington Times, the group plans to conduct a census that will create a database that will be used to help promote the rights and goals of its members in upcoming elections. The goal is to have that database completed in time for the 2016 presidential election. Markell admits she's concerned USCMO wants to enhance Islamic participation in U.S. elections.

"We know what side of the aisle they're going to vote for. They're going to vote for radical leftists," says Markell. "America's being taken over – and I say that very cautiously because it's too shocking for most Americans to comprehend that we are being taken over by, quite frankly, forces of evil that are just shocking.

Farah: FCC Study Is Just Like What Happened During The Holocaust

WND's Joseph Farah was the guest on "Understanding the Times with Jan Markell" over the weekend to discuss "the possible loss of press freedom in America which could trickle down to Christian radio and TV [because this] is what happens when a President appoints himself as king."

One area of concern for Farah and Markell was the totally bogus right-wing freak-out over the FCC supposedly placing government "monitors" in newsrooms all over the nation in order to control the news. Even though the entire story was total nonsense, Farah and Markell logically declared that this is a sign that America is heading in the direction of Nazi Germany.

Farah asserted that the Founding Fathers knew that America would only succeed so long as the citizens were both moral and informed, but thanks to the government, media, and education, Americans today have become secularized, demoralized, and uninformed, which has put this nation in danger.

"After the Holocaust, everybody said 'never again,' Farah warned. "But it will happen again when the same conditions are repeated and that's exactly what we see today."

"That's very true," Markell agree. "This happened in Nazi Germany, so this really troubles me":

Bachmann: Obama Is Supporting Al Qaeda, Proving That We Are In The End Times

In an interview with Understanding the Times host Jan Markell on Saturday, Rep. Michele Bachmann accused President Obama of giving aid to Al Qaeda, which she said is proof that we are living in the Last Days. Of course, on the same day Bachmann gave the interview, a Delta Force operation approved by Obama nabbed a key Al Qaeda figure in Libya.

But according to Bachmann, Obama is now championing the terrorist group.

The Minnesota congresswoman referred to a decision by the Obama administration to allow vetted Syrian rebels not affiliated with terrorist organizations to help them resist chemical weapons attacks, which was spurred by the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons on civilians.

While the administration’s move is only related to non-lethal, defensive and protective aid, Bachmann falsely claimed that “President Obama waived a ban on selling arms to terrorists.”

“President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, US taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including Al Qaeda.”

Bachmann said that the Al Qaeda funding (which isn’t happening) is a sign of the End Times: “This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history.”

“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “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.”

Bachmann and Markell then discussed new mosque construction in the US, which troubled Bachmann: “We’re seeing this all across America, it’s like groups want to top each other and be the new, latest, largest mosque in North America.” She said that many mosques are financed by those “advancing the goals and beliefs of the violent Muslim Brotherhood and that should give us pause.”

She then said that the boom in mosques was evidence that the country should completely cut off immigration.

“In my opinion, I think we should be hitting the pause button on immigration and on refugee resettlement,” Bachmann said. “We have an issue now when you have Americans that are being recruited in America and going over and being involved in terrorism, I think we need to hit the pause button.”

Earlier in the interview, Bachmann claimed that Islam is a violent religion and motivated the Nairobi mall terrorists: “The motivation is inspired from religion; it’s from their religion of Islam.”

She also agreed with Markell’s claim that Somali-Americans may lead a terrorist attack against the Mall of America, lamenting the large Somali population in Minnesota.

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/25/13

  • Tony Perkins vaguely threatens legal action against the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  • Speaking of Perkins, Gov. Bobby Jindal has appointed him to the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement.
  • Peter LaBarbera warns that "when you have boys being awarded and elected 'Homecoming Queen,' you are a society in big trouble."
  • It has gotten to the point where Glenn Beck is now reading excerpts from books like "Fahrenheit 451" on the air.
  • Finally, Jan Markell warns that Somali immigrants in Minnesota will carry out a Kenya-style attack on the Mall of America: "The liberal, twisted mind here in Minnesota cannot possibly conceive of some of these people as being evil ... But I and many other conservatives here in Minnesota are very concerned that this Mall of America is going to be targeted eventually – and the casualties could be astronomical."

Markell: 'Very Vicious' And 'Incredible Gay Agenda' Is 'Growing Like A Hydra-Headed Monster'

On Saturday, End Times broadcaster Jan Markell chatted with Bill Koenig, a reporter with a “biblically relevant” focus on the news, about how the Obama administration is pushing the world closer to the apocalypse with a “perfect storm” of political Islam and the “homosexual agenda.”

“My listeners get so disheartened when we see America being taken over by a godless, secular left, and all that comes with that, including this incredible gay agenda, it’s a very vicious thing that’s just growing like a hydra-headed monster.” Markell said. “What’s going on?”

Koenig said that President Obama’s 2009 inauguration “shocked a lot of us” because his transition team said they would push for LGBT equality: “It was shocking, we couldn’t believe the things that were in there.”

“If you went to the whitehouse.gov website right now and looked under ‘civil rights’ you will see things that for Christians is just really hard for us to even comprehend,” Koenig told Markell. “We have never seen more activists in any administration, even combined, that has pushed the gay agenda as fast and aggressively as the Obama administration.”

Bachmann: We Need God's Help To Defeat Hillary Clinton In 2016

After a lengthy interview with Jan Markell about President Obama’s supposed push for an Islamic caliphate, Michele Bachmann spoke to the Christian Right radio host about the 2016 presidential election, immigration reform and the Last Days.

Bachmann pushed back on Markell’s fera that Hillary Clinton will be elected president: “I don’t at all because I look at the story of David and Goliath, all David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant. It wasn’t the stone, it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a Holy God.”

She said that if “we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the Lord God will do for us in 2016.”

After telling Markell that the GOP needs to discover what its “positive, big picture message solution needs to be,” she responded to a question about support for Israeli policies within Congress to chastise Republicans who supported immigration reform.

She said that just as lawmakers need to stand by Israel “if Iran decides to drop a nuclear weapon on Israel,” the GOP must stand firm on immigration: “It’s not when times are good, it’s when times are bad when you count your friends. I got to tell you, I’ve been shocked and appalled by the conservatives who have gotten on board this train of amnesty for illegal aliens; I’ve been absolutely floored.”

“For some reason they’re on a political suicide journey to make sure that this happens,” Bachmann warned. “This will hurt and forever structurally change our country into the future and I think it will hurt us from a national security perspective as well.”

Bachmann then explained how she sees the “signs of the times.”

“We are in times that are unprecedented,” Bachmann said. “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.”

Marell lamented “that many are heartbroken because we’ve watched this wonderful country of ours just tank more and more and more because of this secular humanist, hardcore, atheistic, left who is hell bent on socialism for America.” 

Bachmann: Obama Aids 'Islamic Jihad' And 'Embraced The Worldview Aspirations Of The Muslim Brotherhood' To Restore the Caliphate

Last year, Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared alongside End Times broadcaster Jan Markell to warn that President Obama is trying to “lift up the Islamists” and impose “Islamic speech codes” that would “take away the free speech rights of the American people.”

The Minnesota congresswoman visited Understanding The Times again this weekend to discuss with Markell why she believes Obama shares the same “worldview” as Islamist groups.

Bachmann recently visited Egypt to endorse the brutal repression of opposition groups, even falsely linking the Muslim Brotherhood to the September 11 attacks. She told Markell that President Obama demanded that Egypt’s military government return deposed President Mohamed Morsi to power (he did not) because the president has “embraced” the Muslim Brotherhood’s “worldview.”

“Now why in the world would we want to put these Islamist fanatics back in power, that hate Jews, that want to see the destruction of that West; why would you do that unless the Obama administration embraced the worldview aspirations of the Muslim Brotherhood?” Bachmann asked.

“This is a worldview issue,” Bachmann explained. “The Islamic view of the world seeks domination… They are seeking to expand their domination across the world.”

The congresswoman claimed that his 2009 Cairo speech, which she called “one of the weirdest speeches you will ever read,” the president said that “as President of the United States it is his duty to further some of the goals and aims of the Muslim religion, one of which is to be able to pay their tithe.”

Even though then-President Hosni Mubarak praised the address, Bachmann alleged that the speech was meant to derail Mubarak and empower the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bachmann told Markell that Obama’s speech was “the green light” for Islamists to rise up.

“What’s weird about all of this is if you just objectively look at every action that Barack Obama has taken as President of the United States, the fruit of his actions have lifted up the aims and goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic jihad, and his actions have taken down Israel,” Bachmann charged. “Every intelligent leak, unprecedented intelligence leaks, all have been to the detriment to Israel, almost as if to defend a signal: don’t try to defend yourselves because the United States won’t be there for you.”

Bachmann went on to accuse Obama of inviting Muslim Brotherhood agents into the government.

She agreed with Markell’s claim that that administration officials have an “affinity” for the Muslim Brotherhood. “Obviously this has something to do with the affinity of Hillary Clinton for Islam and the affinity of Barack Obama for Islam,” Markell said.

“Yes, again, this is a worldview issue,” Bachmann replied. She said that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to “revive the Ottoman Empire” with the administration’s approval: “They are committed to reestablishing a global caliphate. What is very weird is that the Obama administration has bent over backwards to do everything that they can to reach out with what they call an engagement strategy.”

Of course, none of this would’ve happened if we had just listened to Michele Bachmann and elected her as president.

“I hate to say I told you so,” Bachmann said, maintaining that Al Qaeda is using Libyan oil to “further global jihad” and now the “black Islamic flag flies over Libya, flies over Tunisia” – which, for the record, are not controlled by Al Qaeda.

Ex-Gay Activist: God Turned Gay 'Nightmare' Into 'A Fairy Tale Dream Come True'

While this month’s “Ex-Gay Pride” celebrations have been postponed, September has now been declared Ex-Gay Awareness Month because why not. Helping to spread the message, ex-gay activist Stephen Bennett of Stephen Bennett Ministries and Daddy Pants Industries appeared on Saturday’s edition of Understanding the Times with End Times broadcaster Jan Markell. He spent most of the time criticizing Alan Chambers for closing Exodus International and criticizing the effectiveness of sexual orientation conversation therapy.

According to Bennett, same-sex couples are merely “playing house” and don’t have “the real thing.” “God has taken that which for me was a nightmare and literally made a fairy tale dream come true,” he continued.

Markell maintained that America is now at war with God over marriage equality. “When that government proposes evil and the people sanction it, that spells the demise of a country,” Markell said, “we are racing towards tyranny in America and serious judgment as well.”

She concluded that the “road is being paved” for the coming of the Antichrist and a “globalist system.”

Markell: Satan Behind Progressive Movement

End Times broadcaster Jan Markell hosted Michael Coffman this weekend to discuss Coffman’s new book Plundered: How Progressive Ideology is Destroying America, which argues that progressives are engineering America’s demise in order to create a world government.

Markell, of course, claimed Satan was behind it all.

“Satan has used in some cases evil people, in some cases he’s used well-meaning people, but nonetheless the formula of progressivism doesn’t work, it is totally destructive,” Markell said. “These folks would say they don’t need God because they are God, government is a God.”

Coffman explained that progressives in government and the media are trying to hide the deleterious impact of their policies so when economic ruin comes people have no choice but to seek aid from a nefarious global regime, which many fundamentalists believe will occur before the Apocalypse.

“When it hits it’s going to hit hard and it bothers me that people are going to be destroyed because these people have this agenda and this blind reality,” Coffman claimed, alleging that progressives may orchestrate an “economic collapse” in order to establish a system “centered around a world government.” The world government will then “ride in on the white hat with a solution as people are starving and so forth around the world, but all you have to do is sign on this dotted line and give us all of your of rights and we’ll decide what you can or cannot do.”

Later in the interview, he called on people to begin storing “at least six months’ worth of food” before progressive policies bring about hyper-inflation, which he says may occur “in the next couple of years” and will “throw our economy into such a turmoil that we don’t get food delivered for as much as six or eight months.”

Markell Fears Minnesota Cities May Be Destroyed Over Gay Marriage

Like her fellow Minnesota-based conservative talk show host Bradlee Dean, End Times broadcaster Jan Markell is warning that Minnesota is about to experience divine punishment over the state’s new marriage equality law. She told the American Family Association’s news service that gay people and Muslims have turned Minnesota into “the occult capital of America,” noting that “God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality.”

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, laments that The North Star State has become a mecca for many unpleasant things.

"We're the occult capital of America," she tells OneNewsNow. "We certainly have more Islamic influence probably than any other place, other than Dearborn, Michigan. We're certainly one of the gay capitals, and now with homosexual marriage a reality, many Christians, solid pro-family-type people -- we don't know where to run to."

And Markell believes Minnesota Christians are concerned about God's judgment on the state.

"Whether it be economically or some weather-related kind of a tragedy, but God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality; He speaks out on this issue in a very clear manner and calls this an abomination," the Olive Tree Ministries founder warns.

Markell also hosted David Wheaton of The Christian Worldview on her weekend program, Understanding the Times, to discuss Jason Collins and the public reaction to his decision to come out of the closet. Wheaton said that acceptance of Collins and other gay people is turning America into a “disgrace to God,” while Markell claimed that President Obama’s support for Collins proves that “we are headed into big trouble.”

Jan Markell is "disgusted" that Sen. Al Franken appears poised to win re-election: "Franken is nothing but a stooge for Barack Obama. I believe his voting record is either 99 percent or 100 percent. He's a useful idiot for Barack Obama, and conservative people here in Minnesota are thoroughly disgusted. But he will win again because this is the People's Republic of Minnesota." Oh no!

Speaker John Boehner does not seem too concerned about the effort by anti-gay Religious Right groups to mobilize voters against gay Republican candidate Carl DeMaio. Glenn Beck doesn't understand why nobody believes his new peace, love, and understanding message: "Why can’t we stop calling each other names? I know this is hard for many people to swallow from me. I do not claim to be perfect. In fact far from it. But everyone needs to start somewhere. I am trying to change my ways and be a better man. It begins with listening to others and not claiming to have all of the... MORE >

While appearing on the Saturday broadcast of the End Times radio show “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” Rep. Michele Bachmann predicted that ISIS members are planning imminent attacks inside the U.S. and will make American cities experience levels of violence seen in Iraqi cities like Baghdad. After arguing that ISIS members are entering the country as they illegally cross the southern border and “march through our United States airports,” Bachmann made the false claim that “President Obama released Baghdadi,” referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al...

On this weekend’s edition of “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” ex-gay activist Stephen Bennett joined Linda Harvey in denouncing the “miniscule” group of “militant activists who are trying to turn this country upside down” by advocating for LGBT equality. “They’re basically marching in with their fist shaking, saying, ‘We demand equality, homosexuality is equivalent to heterosexuality.’ Folks, it is not, anyone with a brain realizes it is not equal,” he said. “People have strayed so far away from God...

Mission America’s Linda Harvey appeared on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she warned that LGBT rights are pushing the world into the End Times. After discussing the purported dangers that same-sex marriage presents to children, Harvey said that “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America—or both.” Harvey also called on cities to ban LGBT pride parades: “We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades. I think they are a blight on the community, they... MORE >

This weekend, “Understanding the Times” host Jan Markell spoke with Minnesota conservative activist Marjorie Holsten about Common Core, which Holtsen claims contains sex-ed material so graphic that it actually violates obscenity laws in several states. The only reason schools would teach sex-ed, Holsten explains, is that educators are playing the long game in trying to increase the number of Democratic voters: “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children? If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized... MORE >

End Times radio broadcaster Jan Markell is not only convinced that President Obama is bringing Nazism to America, but also thinks that yoga will transform the US into a Nazi-like state. At Markell’s “Understanding the Times” conference [PDF] in Minneapolis this weekend — where a Holocaust survivor at the center of a new WorldNetDaily film repeatedly likened Obama to Adolf Hitler — Markell warned that yoga is undermining Christianity, paving the way for Nazism. Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, with its messianic characterizations – the... MORE >

On Saturday, right-wing broadcaster Jan Markell uncovered yet another purported sign of the End Times: UFO sightings. Mark Hitchock, the author of many End Times-themed books such as Blood Moons Rising, The Late Great United States and The End, told Markell that “unexplainable” UFO sightings are “demonic forces that are passing themselves off as some kind of extraterrestrial beings to draw and distract people’s attention away from God.” “I think it’s very possible that these kinds of things also could be setting people up for various kinds of delusion...
