Farah Claims Earthquake Was God's Judgment On America

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah argues that yesterday’s earthquake on the East Coast was a warning from God to put Americans on notice for the country’s wrongdoings. “After all, if America doesn't face judgment soon, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah,” Farah writes, “And God doesn't offer apologies.” Farah concludes that while “we escaped this time,” “Washington, D.C., deserves more than the wallop it got today”:

Look, this earthquake turned out to be a warning only, without loss of life or serious property damage. But there will be a bigger one coming, as everyone should understand.

Your life can change dramatically in the blink of an eye.

I don't know what to expect from this hurricane on its way toward the East Coast. It could be devastating for some or nothing at all.



Washington, D.C., deserves more than the wallop it got today. It needs a much bigger shaking up than it got. And I have no doubts that it is coming – unless there is a real change of heart in the leadership of this country.

After all, if America doesn't face judgment soon, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. And God doesn't offer apologies.

He does, however, offer second chances, third chances, fourth chances … He's trying to get your attention. Are you paying heed? What will it take? Will your world have to be turned upside down before you recognize what's happening? Would even that be enough?

I know. I know. It was just a little earthquake – and just another hurricane. They happen all the time. What are you making such a big deal about, Farah?

You're right. We escaped this time. No big deal. But when your world is shaking, you tend to think about the things that really matter.

And what really matters is our relationship with our heavenly Father, our Creator, the Lord of the universe.

He is trying to tell us something. His message is very clear. Don't say you weren't warned.

Farah: Gays And Radical Muslims Working Together To Destroy America

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah contends that “the homosexual agenda and the Shariah agenda” are working together to endanger the future of America. Farah claims that both the LGBT community and Muslim-Americans want to alter the institution of marriage, use hate crimes laws to silence critics, and implement Don’t Ask Don’t Tell to weaken the U.S. military. According to Farah, only right-wing activists like him are standing up to the “Muslim Mafia and the Gay Mafia,” but even many leaders of the conservative movement are selling out for “Arab cash” and “wealthy homosexual interests.” Farah writes:

Homosexual political activists are pushing hard for the cultural and legal acceptance of same-sex marriage, the adoption of hate-crimes legislation and open homosexual activity in the U.S. armed forces. Opposition to this agenda typically comes from practicing and observant Christians and Jews who recognize the Bible unequivocally condemns homosexual behavior is sinful and that there are grave real-life consequences to nations that condone it.

But I want you to notice who doesn't actively oppose this agenda in American society today – organized Muslim groups.



I will tell you why: Because they recognize the promotion of this agenda in the U.S. actually serves the Islamist long-term agenda. They recognize that the success of this agenda promotes the weakening of the United States of America in multiple ways.

Let's examine how.

There is little question the legal acceptance of same-sex marriage will open the door to the legalization of polygamy. It's inevitable. After all, if it is now "discriminatory," as we're told, to prohibit two men or two women from getting married, clearly it is "discriminatory" to prohibit the marriage of one man and two or more women. There is simply no other rational way to view it.

Who benefits? Those who practice polygamy as part of their religion – Muslims.



And what about opposition to the gutting of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law? Where are the Muslim organizations on this one? Once again, they are AWOL. Peculiar, isn't it?

Not really. That's because, I believe, the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood tentacles in the U.S. recognize that, ultimately, the U.S. military is one of the last lines of defense of a nation in economic, political and cultural retreat. And they recognize that open homosexual activity within the military's ranks renders it less effective. In other words, it spells victory for the jihadists who ruled the world in the past and intend to rule it in the future.



Until recently, you might note, the only organized political opposition to both the homosexual agenda and the Shariah agenda came from conservatives.

But that is changing.

Some conservative activists, flush with Arab cash, are actively networking their new Muslim friends into the movement and through the Republican Party hierarchy. Other conservative activists are selling out to the wealthy homosexual interests. And a few are even straddling both camps in a very strange and dangerous game indeed.



So what explains the current brand of patty-cake politics between the Muslim Mafia and the Gay Mafia?

Money, moral relativism, naiveté and power.

But this is a short-term marriage of convenience, not a marriage made in heaven.

Joseph Farah Wishes President Obama A Happy Birthday

If today is his real birthday, that is. Joseph Farah and his media site WorldNetDaily have consistently trumpeted the “Birther” conspiracy theory and WND published Jerome Corsi’s book “Where’s The Birth Certificate?”

On President Obama’s birthday, Farah refers to the day as “an unsubstantiated claim” that is “more suspect than ever.” Farah also publicized a change to WND’s “Where’s The Birth Certificate” billboard campaign, with the billboards now reading, “Where’s The Real Birth Certificate?” Arguing that the President’s long form birth certificate is an “outright fraud,” Farah asks, “How long will it take to see him frog-marched down Pennsylvania Avenue?”

How much don't we know about Barack Obama as he nears the end of his third year of White House occupation?

Well, he claims today is his 50th birthday.

Yet, incredibly, it is still only an unsubstantiated claim – and, perhaps, more suspect than ever.

This was the year Obama finally yielded pressure, largely from me, Jerome Corsi and a handful of other Americans, to release his so-called "long-form birth certificate" – the one he had been scrupulously hiding for so long.



How long will it take to see him frog-marched down Pennsylvania Avenue?

How will this charade finally be resolved?

What steps need to be taken to see justice prevail?

We're not nearly as far away as you might think. While the media and the failed Washington political establishment would like it to just go away, that will never happen.

Not as long as I am around to sit on Obama's birthday cake.

The day of reckoning is coming for Obama – and for all the suits that helped him deceive the American people and helped him find the loopholes in the American political system.

Farah: United States Should "Break Up" Over Marriage Equality

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah says that he would rather see the “break-up of the nation” than allow marriage equality for gays and lesbians anywhere in the United States. While criticizing Texas Gov. Rick Perry for saying that he believes New York has a right to decide its own marriage laws (although he supports the Federal Marriage Amendment), Farah contends that the country should dissolve itself to stop marriage equality:

My view of Perry changed from favorable but skeptical to highly unfavorable overnight this week after I read his comments to GOP donors in Aspen, Colo.

Essentially, Perry said he is just fine with New York state's decision to approve same-sex marriage.

"Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex," explained Perry. "And you know what? That's New York, and that's their business, and that's fine with me. That is their call. If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business."

Of course, GOProud, the homosexual Republican group, was quick to praise Perry for his stand. I'm sure Perry is very proud of that endorsement.

What's wrong with his answer? So much it would take me more than one 750-word column to explain. But I will attempt to address his cowardly surrender of the national culture succinctly.

If America is to rediscover its greatness, citizens of all 50 states will need to rediscover the common values that brought us together as a nation in the first place – not just all go out and do our own thing, with every man doing what is right in his own eyes. The only viable alternative is, quite literally, a break-up of the nation.

What Rick Perry is advocating here is cultural surrender.



This would have been a more thoughtful response from a genuine Christian conservative from Texas: "Marriage between one man and one woman is the building block of any functional self-governing society. Abandoning a critical, time-tested, biblical institution like marriage – or redefining it according to a faddish new notion of political correctness – will have profoundly negative effects on any community, state or nation that tries it. I hope and pray New Yorkers challenge the decision by the legislature in New York because I can't believe it actually reflects their views. If we can't agree on fundamentals like marriage, the very fabric of what binds Americans together is becoming so badly frayed that we may have to consider going our separate ways."

Farah: Obama's Israel Policy Caused Deadly Tornadoes

Joining other Religious Right activists who have held President Obama responsible for the deadly tornadoes in the Midwest because of his approach to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah is now directly linking Obama's speech on Israel's borders to the disaster in Joplin, Missouri. He even suggests that Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans as a result of President Bush's foreign policy decisions:

Bible prophecy may have a bad name in the light of Harold Camping's misguided date-setting, but the biggest sign of the end may have been overlooked in all the rapture hysteria of the May 21st weekend.

Once again, we saw the U.S. hit with a series of deadly superstorms following Barack Obama's pledge to return Israel to pre-1967 borders.

Just days after Obama insisted Israel must give up lands it won through military victory with its enemies, some 200 people were killed by a tornado in Joplin, Mo.

There's a pattern here.

We saw it in Katrina, when George Bush forced Israel's withdrawal from Gaza. In fact, as everyone from Israeli rabbis to U.S. senators have noted, it seems to happen every single time the U.S. pressures Israel to divide the land.

...

It goes right back to Genesis and God's pledge to bless those who bless the children of Israel and curse those who curse them.

That is a prophecy that has seen every empire of the world come and go – yet Israel remains. It may be chastened by God. It may be dispersed. It may be divided according to His will. But God has punished every nation that has come against Israel. Each one has been judged.

Now they are left exposed by their bylines and handles. But surely they had killed him off. This is the way it always worked. A lesser person could not have survived the first few minutes of the onslaught. But out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who won’t be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces."

Geller: Obama Is An Illegitimate Child And Therefore An Illegitimate President

Pamela Geller’s rabid anti-Muslim activism helped her win friends in the conservative movement and the Republican Party, and she even had her own panel at CPAC earlier this year. But Geller has now been focusing her efforts on a different issue: Birtherism. Geller accused President Obama of doctoring his birth certificate and took to the Birther website WorldNetDaily to claim that Obama is ineligible to be president because his parents had a sham marriage. Virginia School of Law professor G. Edward White plainly points out that the term “natural born citizen” is “understood to mean a person born in the United States or born abroad to parents who are both American citizen” (emphasis mine) and had nothing to do with the children of purported “sham marriages.” But for Geller, who now professes to be an expert on Obama’s parents’ romantic life, even if Obama was born in the United States he can’t be considered a “natural born citizen” because the Founders wouldn’t have wanted “an illegitimate child of a foreign bigamist” to be President:

The release of Barack Hussein Obama I's immigration file is stunning in what it reveals and the questions it poses. BHO I's visa expired Aug. 8, 1961 (Barack Junior was born Aug. 4, 1961) – is that why he married Obama's mother? Stanley Ann Dunham was a white girl in a family way with a mixed-race child, desperate for legitimacy in a culture that condemned such behavior as abject immorality, and Barack Obama Sr. was a con man from Kenya desperate to stay in the USA. Was the marriage merely a business arrangement (she was 17 when she got pregnant)? Is that why it was so important to place the ads in the Hawaiian papers announcing the birth of the future president – because his father was about to be deported?

Stanley Ann Dunham could not have been so savvy as to know that BHO I was a Muslim polygamist. Yet clearly, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., was never divorced from his first wife in Kenya. The Immigration and Naturalization Service suspected that the elder Obama's marriage to Dunham was a sham, arranged strictly to secure immigration status for him. Despite the fact that BHO I had married Dunham, the government wasn't buying it: An INS official wrote in 1961 that the agency should "make sure an investigation is conducted as to the bona-fide of the marriage."



It is interesting to note that BHO I claims in the documents to have divorced first wife, Kezia, "verbally." According to the Shariah, a man can divorce his wife by repeating it three times. Further, when BHO I returned to Kenya, he apparently lived with his first Kenyan wife and his American third wife, suggesting that the "divorce" he ostensibly secured to marry Dunham was a transitory ruse.

That would make the president illegitimate. In 1787, illegitimate children had different rights. There is no way the founders of this great nation intended for an illegitimate child of a foreign bigamist to attain the highest, most powerful position in the new land.

Similarly, WND editor Joseph Farah maintains that if Obama is eligible to serve as president, then so are “anchor babies,” or the US-born children of illegal immigrants. Unfortunately for Farah, so-called “anchor babies” are in fact American citizens:

We have a pretender to the throne sitting in the highest office of the land – the most powerful elected position in the world.

America has, without a vote, without a constitutional amendment, without even a court decision, dumbed down the eligibility requirement for the presidency. And that is unacceptable. …

Americans do not want illegal aliens to serve as presidents. That's not what the founders envisioned at all. But conceding to Obama's eligibility will open the door to American presidents who were "anchor babies" – children born of illegal aliens born on U.S. soil.

That's not what the Constitution means. That's not what the founders intended. And it's not what Americans want today.

Farah: Trump "Doing God's Work" By Promoting Birther Conspiracy

After speaking alongside Newt Gingrich at Liberty University’s Awakening 2011, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily is now praising Donald Trump for casting doubts on President Obama’s birth certificate. WorldNetDaily is a bastion for conspiracy theories about Obama and other issues, and most recently the website blatantly photoshopped a picture of Obama and his grandparents to try to find a “missing year” in his biography. Farah is one of the most vocal advocates of the discredited conspiracy that Obama is not a naturally-born citizen and consequently ineligible to serve as president, and even left CPAC after the gathering refused to hold his birther panel. In his column today, Farah says he is “eternally grateful” to Trump for propagating the conspiracy:

Donald Trump has billions of dollars and a very large megaphone.

I am eternally grateful to him for standing up boldly and demanding to see Barack Obama's birth certificate, as I have been doing for the last two and a half years.

He probably doesn't need my help, but I offer it here anyway. He's right – and the gals on "The View" and Lisa Myers at NBC are dead wrong.

Obama has not revealed his long-form birth certificate to anyone. And people who work in the press should be the first to recognize that rather than making excuses for the occupant of the White House to continue his stonewalling crusade.

It's a matter of constitutional integrity. It's a matter of national security.

This charade has gone on much too long – aided and abetted by people like Lisa Myers and Bill O'Reilly.



So, don't be discouraged, Mr. Trump. You are doing God's work here. You're right, and most of my colleagues in the news media are wrong. We have not seen the most essential and primary evidence needed to make a determination as to Barack Obama or Barry Soetoro's constitutional eligibility to serve in the White House.

Amazingly enough, we still don't know who this man is.

However, one thing the last two and a half years have established: He certainly has divided loyalties when it comes to the country he supposedly serves.

WND’s Farah Praises “Pink Swastika,” Warns that Gay-Rights Could Lead to Nazism

WorldNetDaily has consistently promoted the very-discredited book by Scott Lively and Ken Abrams which blames gays for the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust, and now its editor Joseph Farah is linking the book to today’s political debate over gay rights. While The Pink Swastika contains little factual merit and Nazi Germany in fact sentenced tens of thousands of homosexuals to concentration camps, the book has inspired social conservative leaders like Bryan Fischer and elevated the status of its co-author Scott Lively, who was closely connected to the “kill the gays bill” in Uganda. In today's column , Farah lavishes praise on the viciously anti-gay book and calls Nazi Germany a “pagan, homosexual cult.” Farah goes on to spin the term “never again” to refer to the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the legalization of same-sex marriage in a number of states, asserting that the rise of Nazism is tied to the gay-rights movement:

I've just finished one of the most disturbing books I've ever read.

It's called "The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party" by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams, and it puts the lie to myth that "gays" were systematically victimized under Adolf Hitler's regime. In fact, it provides overwhelming, meticulously documented evidence from mainstream historical sources that most of those holding the reins of power in Nazi Germany were indeed homosexuals themselves – including Hitler.

In fact, the only conclusion one can make after reading "The Pink Swastika" is that German-style Nazism was a pagan, homosexual cult.



From the party's founding in a homosexual bar, "The Pink Swastika" introduces the reader to all the household names of Nazism – from Goebbels to Goering and Himmler to Hess – and their secrets of sexual perversion, one of the driving forces of their genocidal sadism.

But perhaps not until very recently, with the mandating of open homosexuality in the military and the widespread promotion of same-sex marriage, could Americans have been expected to see the relevance of this remarkable work to their own society. We say, "never again." But do we mean it? Do we even understand what actually happened? I didn't – until I read this book.

Never before have I seen a book explore how someone reputed to be in his early years a homosexual male prostitute, Adolf Hitler, could become the most powerful man in Europe and lead the world into cataclysmic and unprecedented death and disaster.

Lively Claims To Be Moving Away From Anti-Gay Activism

Scott Lively has long been listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of anti-gay hate groups, thanks to his role in Uganda's "kill the gays" bill and to this book "The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party," which has recently become a favorite of Joseph Farah and WorldNetDaily.

But according to a long profile in The Boston Globe, Lively claims he's "toning down his antigay rhetoric and shifting his focus to helping the downtrodden": 

Every day, patrons stream to the Christian folk shows and Bible classes at Holy Grounds Coffee House, the café he opened about two months ago on a block not far from downtown. A thousand people turned out for the March for Jesus he led from the café to the steps of City Hall on the day before Easter. And dozens of children and parents flocked to a city park for his annual Family Day celebration, featuring a water slide, face painting, and grilled food. Even the mayor stopped by that event.

...

He says he has not changed his view that gays are “agents of America’s moral decline’’ but has refocused his approach to fit his flock in Springfield, which he said includes many homeless people, drug addicts, and alcoholics.

“We’re not fighting the culture wars here in Springfield,’’ he said. “The issues here are more fundamental than that. You can’t deal with the culture wars with people who are struggling to survive. Those issues are not relevant. These are people who are trying to live.’’

“This whole mission in Springfield is to show by example the positive side of all this — that when you follow the Biblical approach and try to be as true to him [God] as you can, you get the maximum positive benefit for yourself and society,’’ he said. “It’s completely different from all the things that I’ve done in the past, which is going against the wrongs. We’re working toward what is right"... “If someone were looking for Scott Lively to stop being involved in the other stuff, this is it,’’ he said in an interview in his café. “Those people who criticize me, they should be happy.’’

Of course, Lively is just a viciously anti-gay as he always was:

Lively continues to denounce homosexuality. Paul said that when he invited Lively to preach at his church earlier this year, Lively delivered an “old-time, hellfire message’’ condemning gays.

“It was a sermon that I didn’t really agree with,’’ Paul said. “It was a sermon that God has turned his back on America.’’

In addition, his work continues to be cited by professional anti-gay bigots on a regular basis, so that fact that Lively claims he is "re-focusing" his energies doesn't really change anything.

Farah: “Purge” the Conservative Movement of Gays and Gay-Rights Supporters

As the Religious Right’s boycott of the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) builds momentum, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily has called for exclusion of the ACU from the “conservative movement” as a result of their connections with GOProud, a conservative gay-rights group that is a sponsor of CPAC. Organizations including the American Principles Project, American Values, Capital Research Center, the Center for Military Readiness, Concerned Women For America, Liberty Counsel, Liberty University, the National Organization for Marriage, and the Family Research Council have decided to boycott CPAC over GOProud’s participation. GOProud wants to shrink the clout of the Religious Right in the Republican Party and referred to such groups “dinosaurs headed to political extinction.”

Farah, who previously compared GOProud to the Ku Klux Klan, joins other right wing activists in believing that GOProud is an assault on the wider conservative movement. He likens the Religious Right’s opposition to GOProud to the Biblical story of Gideon: When Giden raised up an army to free the Israelites from the Midianites and end idol-worshipping, God ultimately ordered Gideon to reduce his army from thirty-two thousand to just three hundred or otherwise “Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me’” (Judges 7:2). Farah writes that conservatives, like Gideon, should “purge” their ranks of those who embrace “enemies of moral values” like GOProud:

If the U.S. "conservative movement" is to survive, prosper and be a force for reclaiming everything that made America unique and great in the days ahead, it is going to need a purge.

"Purge" is not a bad word. It simply means, according to the dictionary definition, "to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable; cleanse; purify."

Conservatives need to purge from their movement anything that is not conservative.

They shouldn't be attempting to broaden the definition of "conservative." They shouldn't be trying to build a bigger tent in the failed model of the Republican Party. They shouldn't be revising or lowering their standards. And they absolutely shouldn't be embracing enemies of the moral values that have defined the movement from the beginning.



That's why it's time for true conservatives to get their act together as America faces its greatest challenges ever in the next two years.

God cut Gideon's army up, slicing and dicing it until it represented only a tiny fraction of its numbers. God didn't want a big army to win victory. He wanted a miracle performed by a tiny army listening carefully and being in obedience to His commands.

God purged thousands from Gideon's army.

Conservatives need God's help, not GOProud's.

Purges can make an organization or a movement stronger.

Purges can help to refine, rather than redefine, what an ideology is all about.

Purges can sharpen and strengthen a movement – bringing it back to the core convictions and principles that made it successful.

And that's why the purge of the conservative movement should begin with David Keene and his administrative team at ACU.

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.”

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah writes today that the death of Nelson Mandela should not be mourned because “the system Mandela’s revolution brought about” is bent on “the deliberate, systematic elimination” of the white race in South Africa. In an editorial entitled, “Don’t Mourn for Mandela,” the right-wing activist claims Mandela was a terrorist and “the Mandela mythology is as dangerous as the terror he and his followers perpetrated on so many innocent victims – white and black.” Apartheid was inarguably an evil and...

In his WorldNetDaily column today, Joseph Farah hints at what you might call a false-flag lite theory on last week’s Navy Yard shooting. While stopping short of saying that the Obama administration deliberately staged the attack, as Fox News regular Erik Rush quickly did on Twitter, Farah speculates that the mass shooting was all part of President Obama’s plan to “disarm Americans” and “control the population from the top-down.” “This is going to sound brutishly harsh and judgmental,” Farah writes, “but, I believe, he is consciously using...
