For A Third Time, Janet Porter Claims Her Prayers 'Changed The Results' Of The 2000 Election

During a campaign stop for her ill-fated run for a seat in the Ohio state legislature last month, right-wing activist Janet Porter insisted, for a third time, that her prayers flipped the results of the 2000 presidential election and handed the presidency to George W. Bush.

Porter explained that she had faith in God that her campaign for office could succeed because she had seen God work miracles before, like when He reversed the results in Florida in response to her prayers.

"2000 election. It was Al Gore vs. George W. Bush," she stated. "I was in Broward County, Florida, at the time and I prayed a ridiculous prayer. Did you ever pray a sun-stopping prayer?"

"I was part of the recount team in 2000 and on election night, they declared the election for Al Gore," she explained. "I got down on my knees — Right Wing Watch says that I'm the one responsible, but there were a lot of people who prayed — but I got on my knees and I said, 'God, I'm asking for something that has never been done before, I'm asking you' — it's ridiculous, it sounded ridiculous, it was hard to even form in my mouth, but I said, 'God I'm asking you to change the results of this election.' That's what I prayed. And God changed the results of that election."

Radical Right-Wing Activist Janet Porter Loses Her Bid For Office In Ohio

After years of failing to get the Ohio legislature to pass a radical piece of anti-abortion legislation that she had drafted, long-time Religious Right activist Janet Porter announced back in December that she was running for a seat in the Ohio state senate. 

Since 2011, Porter had been pressuring the Ohio legislature to pass the "Heartbeat Bill," which would outlaw abortion at the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected, without success. Finally, after years of frustration, Porter decided to take matters into her own hands by launching a primary challenge to Republican state senator Larry Obhof.

Thanks to her many years of radical right-wing activism, Porter was able to rack up endorsements from the likes of James Dobson, Mat Staver, Larry Pratt, Mike Huckabee, Phyllis Schlafly, Jerry Boykin, Gordon Klingenschmitt and Troy Newman. At one point, Porter even campaigned on the fact that she was one of the "most-watched" right-wing activists on this very blog: 

Janet is the Left-Wing’s second “most-watched” woman in America, according to “Right Wing Watch," a group dedicated to “monitoring and exposing the activities of the right-wing movement.” The enemies of life and liberty are watching, and they only watch those whom they consider to be a threat. The highest ranking woman is former congresswoman and presidential candidate, Michele Bachmann with 588 “reports,” Janet at 448, and Governor Sarah Palin with 376.

She even wore this fact as a badge of honor in a campaign ad:

Over the weekend, Porter asked her supporters to engage in three days of prayer and fasting ahead of last night's Ohio primary, but it looks like it didn't do much good, as she was soundly defeated by the incumbent:

  • Janet Porter claims that her radio program was canceled in 2010 because of concerns about the "ecumenical nature of [an] event in which the WVCY network specifically took issue with the inclusion of a Catholic priest, Jewish Rabbi, and Pentecostal pastor." In reality, she lost her show because of her embrace of Dominionism.
  • Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, seems like a nice guy.
  • Speaking of Trump, if you intend to volunteer for his campaign, be prepared to sign a contract promising never to criticize Trump or anything Trump-related for the rest of your life.
  • FRC's Tony Perkins will once again be serving on the Republican Platform Committee at the convention in July.
  • Finally, Peter LaBarbera has a dire warning about the SPLC: “[U]nless the Christians wake up and understand that they're the ones who are going to go down, this is just going to get out of control very fast. I mean, there's going to be a totalitarian atmosphere in this country because these thought police have to be stopped.”

  • Janet Porter is asking for Christians to fast and pray before the Ohio primary tomorrow in which she is running for a seat in the state senate.
  • Second Amendment zealot Jan Morgan has withdrawn her endorsement of Ted Cruz because "his decision to blame Trump for the violence and actions of paid, liberal thugs/ protestors in Chicago is unconscionable."
  • Speaking of Cruz, he is bravely taking a stand and will not support Trump as the GOP nominee in the general election, but only if Trump happens to shoot somebody.
  • Jesse Lee Peterson says that Trump is "uniquely able to unite America" because "this is a man’s game. The other Republicans are playing it like women – and losing."
  • Finally, Peter LaBarbera is outraged at the Kiss Cam: "I saw — I think it was a hockey game — where they had the kissing cam, and it was two guys kissing. And our kids are there. Do we want our sons and daughters to think it's okay for two people of the same sex to kiss? It's not okay! It's immoral! It's wrong!"

  • Finally, Walid Shoebat blasts his fellow anti-gay activists for refusing to "support the death penalty for pedophiles and homosexuals who rape young boys": "I see millions upon millions, crowds upon crowds, stadiums and arenas, yet not once did I see any of these major crowds marching to the White House crying for justice for the poor victims or calling for death for such reprobates as they do in the east." 

Mike Huckabee Returns The Favor, Endorses Janet Porter For State Senate In Ohio

Back before he dropped out of the presidential race, Mike Huckabee spent an a lot of time blasting the Religious Right for failing to support his campaign as most of the movement leaders lined up behind Ted Cruz, while he was reduced to scrounging up endorsements from fringe candidates like Janet Porter.

Porter has long been an ardent Huckabee supporter, so it was no surprise to see Huckabee eagerly welcome her support, despite her radical views and long history of promoting bizarre conspiracy theories, ranging from warning that President Obama would orchestrate food shortages to starve conservatives to death to speculating that Obama would use swine flu fears as an excuse to lock conservatives up in prison camps.

She also released an insane anti-gay movie last year in which Huckabee was prominently featured.

Porter, of course, is currently running her own campaign for elected office in Ohio and Huckabee has now returned the favor by releasing a video endorsing her bid for a seat in the state senate:

  • Speaking of Carson, he too will be campaigning at Rick Joyner's church in South Carolina.
  • Janet Porter is not happy about an ad featuring gay couples: "People call all kinds of things love. Polygamy. Incest. Homosexuality ... [S]in isn’t 'love' not matter how many television ads they run."
  • Ted Cruz's main national security advisor is an art historian.
  • Finally, FRC is calling on presidential candidates "to reject forcing our daughters to register for the draft": "For years, women have served in the U.S. military honorably and with distinction. That fact is indisputable. But these women have served on a voluntary basis -- the choice to serve was theirs alone. Requiring women to register for the draft is to forcibly put our daughters in harm's way against their will."

  • Glenn Beck warns that Donald Trump is a "pathological narcissistic sociopath" and says that people should listen to him because he accurately predicted 9/11, the 2008 economic crisis and the rise of the caliphate.
  • Speaking of Beck, Alex Jones is convinced that Beck is trying to "get rid of me and steal my identity."
  • Mike Huckabee apparently thinks that making an Iowa-centric parody of Adele's "Hello" is going to boost him to victory in next week's caucuses.
  • On a related note, Steven Anderson says that only Huckabee can stop God from destroying America: "Voting Huckabee for president means God won't remove the USA in judgment for our sins."
  • In announcing his campaign for a state senate seat, Gordon Klingenschmitt claims that he is a college professor.
  • Finally, Klingenschmitt has thrown his support behind fellow radical right-wing activist Janet Porter in her own run for state office in Ohio.

  • Ben Carson is outraged by the indictment of David Daleiden and vows that "as president, he will use the full weight of his office to not only cut off all federal funding for this organization, but also prosecute them for crimes against the unborn."
  • Daleiden's mentor, Troy Newman, is likewise outraged: "This has the effect of chilling the First Amendment freedom of the press and could scare crime witnesses away from coming forward for fear that they might suffer similar retaliatory prosecution."
  • Finally, Janet Porter says that she is running for office to put an end to abortion: "Influencing the elected hasn’t worked. We must become the elected. It’s time to run for office and finish the job the establishment incumbents refuse to do. And once we’re elected, we’re going to end abortion. For real."

Supreme Court Rejects Attempt At Restrictive Six-Week Abortion Ban

There has long been a debate raging within the anti-abortion movement between those who have mapped out a careful strategy to slowly chip away at Roe v. Wade through incremental restrictions on abortion and those who want to launch legal broadsides against abortion rights in the hopes that one will take Roe down once and for all.

The incrementalists will have their big day in court on March 2, when the Supreme Court hears arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole, a challenge to a set of laws in Texas that seeks to cut off access to legal abortion even as the procedure remains legal. Whole Woman’s Health is the culmination of a decades-long strategy by groups like Americans United for Life to choke off abortion access by creating unnecessary regulations on clinics. These groups are also hoping to get the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe in the form of laws banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, just before when the court has said that abortion bans are legal.

But those who want to find a silver bullet to end abortion rights completely just had a day in court too … and it didn’t go well for them.

The Supreme Court today declined to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling that struck down North Dakota’s “fetal heartbeat” law, which would have banned abortion at about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women even know that they are pregnant. The law was clearly unconstitutional — one prominent anti-choice lawyer has called such efforts “futile” — but North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said that it was an “attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade.”

The boundaries of Roe v. Wade, it turns out, however much they may be weakened by incremental restrictions, still prevent banning almost all abortions.

Yet today’s rejection is unlikely to halt the efforts of “heartbeat bill” crusaders, the most prominent of whom is Religious Right activist Janet Porter, who is currently running for the legislature in her home state of Ohio in an effort to push such a bill through.

Mike Huckabee Touts Endorsements From Anti-Gay Extremists And End Times Fanatics

Just last week, Mike Huckabee was burning bridges with many Religious Right leaders by accusing them of being a bunch of sell-outs and frauds who don't really want to see an end to legal abortion and gay marriage and of having insufficient faith in God, all because they are not backing his presidential campaign. 

But apparently there are still a handful of Religious Right activists who have the virtue and moral fortitude to stand with Huckabee, despite his poor poll numbers, and endorse his candidacy, as reported by CBN's David Brody today:

It’s Iowa or bust for Mike Huckabee and with just a few weeks to go before the big Iowa Caucus, he’s trotting out some key endorsements from notable pro-family conservatives. The Brody File has the exclusive.

Among the group endorsing Huckabee are Dr. Tim LaHaye, minister and author of the New York Times best-selling Left Behind book series; Dr. Jim Garlow, Senior Pastor of SkyLine Church;” Art Ally, founder and president of Timothy Plan, America’s first pro-life and pro-family mutual fund company; Dr. Eric M. Wallace, President & Co-Founder of Freedom’s Journal Institute and Janet Folger Porter, Founder and President Faith2Action. It’s a solid list. 

Religious Right activist Tim LaHaye, of course, is the author of the Left Behind series and an End Times fanatic who has warned that President Obama is trying to destroy America and, as he told Huckabee, is bringing about the Armageddon:

Jim Garlow is an anti-gay activist who played a key role in the passage of California's Proposition 8. He has warned that gay marriage is a "demonic" and satanic force that will destroy America and force Christians underground where they will form a resistance movement in order to save America from the tyranny that is sweeping the nation. He has repeatedly declared that he is willing to die fighting against gay marriage:

Janet Porter, who has long been a vocal supporter of Huckabee's, is also a longtime radical right-wing activist who is now running for a seat in the Ohio state senate. An avowed conspiracy theorist, Porter has spent years warning that Obama would orchestrate food shortages in order to starve conservatives to death while using a swine flu outbreak as an excuse to lock them up in concentration camps. She has also suggested that Obama was raised by Soviet agents since he was a child, would personally negotiate with Osama bin Laden and make sure that people are denied "lifesaving treatment" based on "their political views."

Fortunately for Huckabee, Porter has repeatedly claimed that her prayers put George W. Bush in the White House.

When she is not praying that God will give conservative Christians control over the government and the media, Porter has been busy warning that increasing acceptance of gay rights will turn Christians into criminals who will eventually be rounded up and tossed in jail. This culminated in an anti-gay film she recently produced called "Light Wins" that featured none other than Mike Huckabee, along with several  Republican members of Congress and anti-gay activists who warned that gay activists are "grooming" and endangering children, for which they should be held criminally liable. Huckabee told viewers that gay equality is putting the freedom of religion and speech in jeopardy, which Porter portrayed as a nationwide conflagration:

The Gay 'Jihad,' The Charleston 'Accident' And The 10 Worst Right-Wing Moments of 2015

Here at Right Wing Watch, we listen to hours of video and audio each day in order to find the short clips that we share with our readers. It’s been a doozy of a year, in which presidential politics has collided with the farthest of the far right, and here at Right Wing Watch, we’ve had the dubious pleasure of witnessing it all. It’s hard to pick our favorite/most horrifying memories of the year, so instead we’ve looked back at the 10 most watched videos and most listened-to audio clips of the year.

10. Sandy Rios Investigates The Amtrak Crash

Days after an Amtrak train derailed in Philadelphia in May, killing eight and injuring hundreds, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios pointed out “an interesting part of the story” that was likely “a factor” in the crash: the conductor’s homosexuality.

9. ‘America, Repent Of Harry Potter!’

This was just one of the many bizarre and disturbing things to happen at last month’s National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, which was attended by three Republican presidential candidates .

8. The Gay Marriage ‘End Game’

June was not a happy month for anti-gay activists, as exemplified by Vision America’s Rick Scarborough, who days before the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision warned that gay marriage was a satanic plot to destroy Christianity and may very well bring God’s judgment on America.

7. ‘Light Wins’

You can imagine our delight when conservative activist Janet Porter announced that she had filmed a new anti-gay “documentary” featuring Republican presidential candidates and members of Congress alongside some of the most extreme anti-gay activists in the business.

The trailer was stunning:

And, in the end, the film did not disappoint.

6. Gay Wedding Etiquette

At the same conference at which he railed against Harry Potter, radical pastor Kevin Swanson offered his advice on what to do if your child is gay and getting married.

Reminder: Swanson organized the conference, which three Republican presidential candidates attended.

5. Pat Robertson Comforts the Bereaved

Televangelist Pat Robertson is not always quite on point with the advice he gives to viewers of “The 700 Club” at the end of every program, such as when he told a bereaved mother who had just lost a young child that the child could have turned out to be the next Hitler .

4. The Gay ‘Jihad’

Ted Cruz went there during a campaign event in Iowa in April.

3. Rick Perry’s ‘Accident’

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a very ill-timed “oops” moment when he called the mass shooting at a church in Charleston an “accident,” in the process of claiming that the crime was the result of drugs rather than guns.

2. Phil Robertson’s Imagination

Back in March, controversial “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson tried to make a convoluted point about atheists supposedly having no moral code by telling a gruesome hypothetical story about a family of atheists getting raped and murdered.

1. Rick Scarborough’s Martyrdom

Nobody took the hysteria over the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision quite as far as Rick Scarborough, who declared a few days before the court handed down its decision that he was ready to burn to death in his fight against gay marriage.

Radical Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Conspiracy Theorist Janet Porter Running For The Ohio Legislature

Faith 2 Action's Janet Porter is a longtime anti-gay and anti-choice activist who has embraced a variety of wild conspiracy theories while constantly warning of the looming "criminalization of Christianity."

For years, Porter used her daily radio program and weekly column to promote a variety of conspiracy theories surrounding President Obama's birth, alleging that his election was the result of a massive communist conspiracy. After her prayers failed to prevent Obama from taking office and subsequently cursing America, Porter went to work warning her fellow conservatives that Obama would orchestrate food shortages in order to starve them to death, use a swine flu outbreak as an excuse to lock them up in concentration camps, and use Obamacare to deny them healthcare and eliminate them.

Porter has also long warned that increasing acceptance of gay rights will turn Christians into criminals who will eventually be rounded up and tossed in jail, going so far as to try and prevent the Supreme Court from ruling on the issue of gay marriage. Recently she produced an anti-gay documentary called "Light Wins" that featured a variety of Republican members of Congress, GOP presidential hopefuls and anti-gay activists warning that gay activists are "grooming" and endangering children, for which they should be held criminally liable.

Despite her radical views, Porter managed to host a "Values Voters Debate" back in 2007, which featured Mike Huckabee and other GOP presidential contenders making their pitches to a bevy of radical Religious Right activists. But Porter's star dimmed a bit when her radio program was cancelled in 2010 due to her growing ties to the Dominionist movement, as typified by her prayers that God would give conservative Christians control over the government and the media:

Porter eventually resurfaced in Ohio, where she has spent the last several years organizing a series of stunts and rallies aimed at pressuring the state legislature to pass her radical "Heartbeat Bill" legislation, which would outlaw abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected. 

Despite years of intense lobbying, Porter's legislation has never even come close to passage, so now she intends to step up her efforts by running for a seat in the state legislature herself:

The president of a Christian activist organization will challenge incumbent state Sen. Larry Obhof of Montville Township for the 22nd district in the March Republican primary.

Obhof will face Janet Porter, of Hinckley Township, on March 15.

As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, no Democrats had filed to run for the seat, meaning the primary winner likely will run uncontested in November.

Porter is president and founder of Faith 2 Action, a Christian organization that says it opposes same-sex marriage. Before starting the organization in 2003, she was the national director for the Center for Reclaiming America for five years and a legislative director at Ohio Right to Life for nine years.

She told The Gazette on Wednesday that she recently finished filming a documentary, “Light Wins: How to Overcome the Criminalization of Christianity,” and she interviewed Kim Davis, a Kentucky court clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last summer.

“I stand for life. I stand for liberty,” she said. “The family is the nucleus of the state. It’s the basis for business.”

In addition to a pro-life position on abortion and opposition to gay marriage, Porter said she supports tax incentives to small businesses and less government interference.

She said she is also an author of Ohio’s “heartbeat” bill, which prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected. The bill has been in the Ohio Senate for consideration since last spring. She said she asked Obhof to sign a petition to bring the bill to a vote, but he declined. This encounter was one of the reasons she decided to become a candidate, she said.

“We’re running against the Republican obstructionist establishment,” she said. “There’s more they can do to represent life, liberty and the family.”

Janet Porter: 'Hero Of Faith' Kim Davis For TIME Person Of The Year

Anti-gay activist Janet Porter is rallying behind the campaign to make Kim Davis TIME’s Person of the Year , using her radio commentary today to laud the Kentucky clerk as a “hero of the faith.”

Porter, who oncelikened Davis to Holocaust victims and recently produced a bizarre film about the supposed dangers of gay marriage, lauded Davis as “the first person in America to experience the criminalization of Christianity as a result of the Supreme Court Obergefell decision which legalized homosexual so-called ‘marriage.’”

She added that Davis “deserves to be honored for her courageous stand” as she defied the courts and “stood with God.”
