Bachmann: 'Treasonous' Obama Wants Iran To Have A Nuclear Bomb

In an appearance on The Lars Larson Show last week, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) claimed that President Obama wants to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. Bachmann called Wendy Sherman, the State Department’s lead negotiator with Iran, a “terrible negotiator” and said “her goal is to make sure that Iran has full ability to continue to enrich uranium and continue to stockpile it, they will have the full ability to create a nuclear bomb.”

“For some unknown reason the Obama administration wants the last country in the world that should have a nuclear bomb to get one,” Bachmann said. “Call your member of Congress, tell them ‘I want you to stop President Obama from giving the ability to have a nuclear bomb to Iran and that’s the bottom line of what’s happening here.’”

“It is treasonous and I think that’s why you hear more and more people calling for the impeachment of the President of the United States,” she continued. This isn’t the first time Bachmann has floated Obama’s impeachment.

Bachmann also seemed to suggest that North Korea developed nuclear capabilities under Obama even though its first nuclear test was in 2006: “Why do they want to allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, just like they did with North Korea? The Obama administration and Wendy Sherman in particular will have to answer that, I can’t. I don’t understand them, I don’t understand the thoughts and intentions of their heart.”

“What I do understand is that my children and your children and the children of all of your listeners have the goal of making sure that when they tuck their children in tonight, their children are going to be peaceful and sleep secure, and we will not have that dynamic if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon,” Bachmann said.

Bachmann: Obama's Health Care Law Will Be Known As 'DeathCare'

Michele Bachmann tried to outdo Ben Carson at today’s Values Voter Summit in her attack on health care reform, calling Obamacare an “egregious system” that “will ultimately be known as DeathCare.” Such language comes as no surprise from the Minnesota congresswoman, who has repeatedly warned that Obamacare will establish death panels and “literally” kill people.

She added that Obamacare will turn the US into a “police state” that will make NSA surveillance seem small (ironically, Bachmann was one of the NSA’s biggest defenders).

Bachmann ended the speech by calling on people to fight against “this oppressive president” over Obamacare, calling it “the battle of our time.”

Bachmann: Obama 'Committed Impeachable Offenses,' Wants To Be A Dictator

Speaking with conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries on a conference call sponsored by TheTeaParty.net yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota suggested that the House hold hearings on impeaching the president. Bachmann said that “impeachment is the stain” on the presidency and “We can have an impeachment hearing in the House and in my mind the President has committed impeachable offenses.”

“With Harry Reid in charge of the Senate, unless there is some miracle that happens,” Bachmann lamented, “Harry Reid is not going to remove Obama from office.”

The Minnesota congresswoman, who recently said that Obama is aiding Al Qaeda and plunged the world into the End Times, told Tea Party activists that we “could be on the cusp of seeing some civil disobedience” similar to what happened in Egypt because “people aren’t going to take this thuggery of this President much longer.”

“We see thuggery going on in the White House, we’re not going to take it, we’ve drawn a line in the sand,” Bachmann maintained, adding that Obama needs to know that he is “not a dictator.”

“What this is about is whether or not we will hold onto a constitutional republic,” Bachmann told listeners about the government shutdown fight. “I want the Tea Party to know they made a profound difference and what they’re fighting for is to see if we’re actually going to be a constitutional republic or if we’re going to be totally devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama.”

Bachmann also took issue with the press, which she said “could rightly be called ‘Treason Media.’”

“They have done everything they can to facilitate this president because they agree with him, they agree with his worldview, they agree with his message, they have no interest in the truth, they only have an interest in protecting this President,” Bachmann charged, pointing to the media’s supposed lack of questions about the Benghazi attack.

Bachmann even reacted to Miley Cyrus’s impersonation of her on Saturday Night Life, telling activists that she didn’t mind the skit and assured them, “I’ve never done twerking in my life and I don’t intend to take it up.”

Civil Rights Groups Urge GOP Leaders to Skip Values Voter Summit

This weekend, Religious Right leaders and GOP politicians will gather in Washington for the Values Voter Summit, an annual event that highlights the cozy relationship between Republican elected officials and extreme right-wing groups.

The event is hosted by the Family Research Council, a group with a long record of pushing false anti-gay propaganda. And one of the event’s major sponsors is the American Family Association, whose extreme right-wing views are expressed on a daily basis by its spokesman Bryan Fischer.

On Friday, People For the American Way joined with the Southern Poverty Law Center, Faithful America, GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, the NAACP and the National Council of La Raza to send a letter to every public official scheduled to speak at this year’s Values Voter Summit, urging them to withdraw from the event.

Among the scheduled speakers are Sens. Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Tim Scott and Reps. Paul Ryan, Randy Forbes, Michele Bachmann, Jim Bridenstine, Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan, Steve King, Steve Scalise and Scott Turner.

The letter [pdf] reads in part:

We understand that you’ve been invited to speak at the upcoming Values Voter Summit being held in Washington, D.C., from Oct. 11-13. Given the demonizing lies about the LGBT community spread by the host, the Family Research Council (FRC), and another major sponsor of the event, the American Family Association (AFA), we urge you to not lend the prestige of your office to the summit.

The FRC has amassed an extensive record of vilifying gays and lesbians with falsehoods – portraying them as sick, evil, incestuous, violent, perverted, and a danger to the nation.  Perhaps its most insidious claim is that gay men molest children at a far higher rate than heterosexual men – a claim refuted by all credible scientific authorities, including the American Psychological Association. Yet the FRC has continued to smear gays and lesbians by claiming  that pedophilia, in the words of FRC President Tony Perkins, “is a homosexual problem.”

Perkins also says the “It Gets Better” campaign, an initiative designed to give LGBT students hope for a better tomorrow, is “disgusting” and part of a “concerted effort” to “recruit” children into the gay “lifestyle.” One senior FRC official has even argued that homosexuality should be illegal.

The AFA’s Bryan Fischer, who serves as the group’s spokesman and director of issue analysis, frequently blames homosexuality for the Holocaust and Nazi Party: “Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.” He also promotes the views of the American architect of the “Kill the Gays” bill in Uganda.

Demonizing the LGBT community has consequences. As FBI data demonstrate, it is one of the groups most likely to be victimized by violent hate crimes. Defaming them publicly day after day – as the FRC and the AFA do – only throws fuel on the fire.

The bigotry of the FRC and the AFA is not limited to gays and lesbians. Fischer, for example, has said that African Americans “rut like rabbits” and argued that women should be kicked out of politics and the military. He’s also stated that Hispanics are “socialists by nature”  and come here to “plunder” our country. The FRC’s executive vice president, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, has said Jews must be converted to Christianity and has argued that “Islam is not a religion and does not deserve First Amendment protections” – a statement that is antithetical to American ideals.

In 2011, we urged Mitt Romney not to share a stage with the extremists, and particularly Fischer, at that year’s Values Voter Summit. Although Romney still attended, he also made a point of calling out Fischer’s “poisonous language." This year, Fischer was noticeably not listed as a speaker at the summit, although his employer remains a sponsor.
 

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.

Six Delusional GOP Shutdown Talking Points

Now that the House GOP leadership has listened to its far-right Tea Party wing and shut down the government in a failed attempt to block the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, Republicans in Congress are trying to present themselves as American heroes.

They are patting themselves on the back for attempting to stop a law that they claim most voters oppose…despite the fact that voters re-elected President Obama just last November and overwhelmingly oppose the Tea Party shutdown.

We attempted to wade into the Tea Party’s alternate universe to condense Right’s six favorite talking points about the shutdown.

Obama’s Re-Election Had Nothing To Do With Obamacare

Only in the delusional reality of conservative activists was Obamacare not an issue in the last election. Mitt Romney campaigned for a full repeal of the health care law with the message, “Day one. Job one. Repeal Obamacare.” But not according to Heritage Foundation head and Romney backer Jim DeMint, who said that Romney and other Republicans lost because they weren’t conservative enough and “because of Romney and Romneycare, we did not litigate the Obamacare issue.” Sen. Rand Paul maintained that there hasn’t been a “big debate on Obamacare” since 2010, while Fox News anchor Steve Doocy defended repeal efforts by making the dumbfounding claim that “the November election last time was not about Obamacare.”

Obamacare Isn’t A Law!

Congressional Republicans have tried to avoid admitting that Obamacare is even a law, with several GOP lawmakers in the Senate and theHouseincluding Speaker Boehner — referring to the Affordable Care Act — signed into law in 2010 — as only a “bill.” The right-wing group FreedomWorks said that it is encouraging Republicans to label the law as a “bill” in order to undermine it by “emphasiz[ing] that the law remains quasi illegitimate, because it has never accepted by one of the two major parties.” It should go without saying that just because one party doesn’t like a law, doesn’t mean that it is not a law.

Obamacare Wrong Because People Will Like It

The GOP is insistent that Congress must repeal Obamacare before people begin enjoying its benefits. Sen. Ted Cruz warned that “it is likely Obamacare will become a permanent feature of our economy” once people become “addicted to the subsidies, addicted to the sugar.” Rep. Michele Bachmann similarly asserted that “it will be virtually impossible for us to pull these benefits back from the people” after “they enroll millions of more” people into health insurance plans and get them “addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency.”

Democrats Need To Compromise On Derailing Obamacare

Republicans and several media outlets have tried to create a false equivalency between GOP hostage-taking and Democratic officials who simply want to keep the government running. Cruz said his anti-Obamacare strategy represents “the essence of a compromise” and asked, “what have the Democrats compromised on? Nothing. Zero.” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher also slammed Democrats for having “refused to even consider the compromise that [Republicans] have offered.” Of course, these notions of “compromise” are based on the absurd premise that simply funding the government is itself a concession on the part of Republicans, and Democrats now should return the favor by agreeing to their objective of undermining the health care reform law.

Obamacare Opponents Emulating Civil Rights Legends

Florida freshman Ted Yoho said that Republicans who shut down the government over the health care law are just like Civil Rights Movement activists Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., and Polish Solidarity founder Lech Walesa: “It only takes one with passion — look at Rosa Parks, Lech Walesa, Martin Luther King,” Yoho said. “People with passion that speak up, they’ll have people follow them because they believe the same way, and smart leadership listens to that.”

House Republicans Like 9/11 Heroes

Texas Republican John Culberson tried to rally the House GOP by comparing their struggle to the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93, who fought the terrorists who hijacked their plane: “I said, you know like 9/11, ‘Let’s roll!’”

Bachmann: Obama Peddling 'Crack Cocaine Of Dependency'

In an interview published today on the conspiracy-theory-happy website WorldNetDaily, Rep. Michele Bachmann likens President Obama to a crack dealer, accusing him of trying to “get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.”

The Minnesota congresswoman, who has alleged that Obamacare denies healthcare to conservatives, implements death panels and “literally kills” people, even tried to link health insurance exchanges to supposed ACORN-esque voter fraud in which non-existent people will sign up for insurance to make money.

Apparently, Bachmann is afraid that Americans will like the benefits of the Affordable Care Act so much that it will be “virtually impossible” for Republicans to repeal the reform law.

Pulling no punches, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told WND exactly why she thinks President Obama and Democrats are unwilling to negotiate with the GOP over Obamacare’s well-documented problems.

“I think the reason is because President Obama can’t wait to get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.”

“Because, once they enroll millions of more individual Americans, it will be virtually impossible for us to pull these benefits back from people,” the congresswoman explained.

“All they want to do is buy love from people by giving them massive government subsidies,” Bachmann summed up.

That’s why she wants lawmakers to do whatever they can to stop Obamacare, now.

“If it means delaying it, rather than repealing it. I’m for it. We have to do what we can do.”

Warning they are “making it up as they go along,” Bachmann predicted disaster if Obamacare goes ahead, because, “They’re trying to fly a plane they haven’t even built yet.”



WND asked if she heard concern from constituents over turning giving health and financial information to the government?

“Oh, yes. People are extrmely nervous, especially after all of the NSA issues earlier this year.”

“People don’t trust government, at all,” she added. “They don’t trust government’s ability not to be hacked, but they also look at a federal government that would intentionally misuse their data.”



The congresswoman told WND she had learned during a briefing that the navigators, or assisters, who will be signing up people for Obamacare “will be getting something like $59 a head for the people that they sign up. ACORN did that.”

“ACORN signed up Donald Duck and Minnie Mouse,” just making up names, “so people could make money. It was meant to be a scam.”

ACORN, the community organizing and voter-registration organization that Obama worked for in the 1990′s was disbanded after massive allegations of voter law violations and at least 54 ACORN employees and individuals associated with ACORN were convicted of voter fraud.

“We know people will get signed up in a fraudulent way. That’s why President Obama has already waived or deleted 19 different areas for Obamcare. Because they make it up as they go along.”

Bachamann insisited it is “unconstitutional for the executive to rewrite laws at will and spend money that Congress doens’t authorize. That’s competely [sic] unconstitutional.”



“Remember, we were lied to by the president. He told us abortion will not be funded. It is. We were told sterilizations, contraceptives, all that, we were told wouldn’t be part of the bill. It is. So, almost every promise the president has made has turned out to be false.” The tea party rock star declared, “Now is the time to put it out of its misery.”

“I am the author of the bill to repeal Obamcare, we’ve done that (the House has passed it) several times. We have to do what we can do. Whether that means defuding it instead of repealing it, I’m for it. If it means delaying it, rather than repealing it. I’m for it.”

“Whatever we can do to relieve the suffering of this economy and the American people.”

Bachmann: Clintons Closely Tied To Muslim Brotherhood

Louie Gohmert wasn’t the only far-right congressman to stop by The Lars Larson Show in recent days, as Michele Bachmann last week told the conservative radio host that “the Clintons have very close ties to people who have very close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“We’re not talking about the Lutheran Brotherhood here, we’re talking about the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann said, once again pointing to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin as a Muslim Brotherhood agent.

Steve King Insists 9/11-Muslim Brotherhood Link Confirmed By 'Well-Placed Sources Within the Middle East'

Iowa congressman Steve King, who joined fellow Republicans Rep. Michelle Bachman and Rep. Louis Gohmert in Egypt last week, where they delivered a televised message praising the Egyptian military’s crackdown on dissenters, claims that the group’s insistence that the Muslim Brotherhood was linked to the 9/11 terrorist attacks comes from a “very reliable” source “within the Middle East.” But he won’t say who his source is because “then it would be a political incident.”

The Bush administration’s 9/11 commission found no such link, except to note a handful of instances where Al Qaeda members had peripheral contact with the sprawling group.

While Bachmann has attempted to backtrack from the comments, King has characteristically doubled down.

The Omaha World-Herald reports:

Tuesday, during a call with reporters, King defended Bachmann's statements.

King said he had received evidence tying the Muslim Brotherhood to both the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and last year's attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. He said his information comes from “very well-placed sources within the Middle East.”

Pressed for more details, King declined to specify even the country from which the information originated.

“That source is a very reliable source and it is very sensitive,” King said. “If I were to clarify the source of it, then it would be a political incident. And I'd just as soon not initiate that.”

Radio Iowa adds:

“I have received evidence that there was a foundation there among the Muslim Brotherhood in each of those cases and it’s not something that I think that they can just simply say is wrong. They would have to be the ones to prove the negative,” King said. “It takes a fair amount of self-confidence, sometimes misplaced self-confidence, to be so critical with a basis to do so.”

King was asked twice during his telephone news conference to reveal the source of his information.

“I think I’ll just stick with my answer of very well-placed sources within the Middle East,” King said, “and I think that it will be verified over time.”

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.

Bachmann: Immigration Reform 'Means You Don't Have A Future And A Hope'

Last month, the annual Eagle Forum Collegians Summit took place in Washington, DC where Birther crackpots like Jerome Corsi shared the stage with members of Congress like Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann spent a large part of her speech railing against immigration reform, telling the audience filled with college students that if any legislation passes, their taxes are going to skyrocket, the economy is going to collapse, and their futures are going to be destroyed.

"If you think taxes are high now," Bachmann warned, "get ready! This impacts you.  This means you don't have a job. This means you don't have benefit packages. This means you don't have a future and a hope."

Immigration reform should not be interested in being compassionate to those wishing to come here, she asserted, but rather focused on "America first; it's your life first and we've got to get our house back in order. That's what I'm elected to do: look out for the Americans who voted for me; my job isn't to look out for law-breakers who broke our law to come into the country":

Diana West: Obamacare Will Turn US Into A 'Leading Outpost of the Caliphate'

WorldNetDaily’s Diana West is out with a new column entitled “Huma Abedin: Muslim Brotherhood Princess.”

Of course, since this is WorldNetDaily after all, she somehow managed to link this to Obamacare.

West maintains that the health care reform law means that the Communists were the real winners of the Cold War as the “totalitarian” law creates a “super-state” that will destroy the Republic.

She argues that the “cover-up” of Huma Abedin’s status as “a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess” is part of a plan to shield Americans from the “Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain”: “[Michele] Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.”

With our guards down to the Marxist-Muslim conspiracy, Americans will become complacent to the supposed Islamic infiltration of government and the dangers of Obamacare: “don’t worry. We ‘won’ the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare ‘victory’ in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.”

Nationalized health care was one of the first programs enacted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in 1917. Nearly a century later, the U.S. enacted “Obamacare.”

Who won the Cold War again? This is one of the questions I work over in my new book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character” (St. Martin’s Press). Can we realistically claim liberty and free markets triumphed over collectivism when today there is only a thin Senate line trying to fend off Obamacare’s totalitarian intrusions into citizens’ lives? We see perhaps a dozen or so patriots led by conservative ace Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, gallantly mustering forces to defund further enforcement of this government behemoth aborning. (Call your senators and ask them to join – or tell you why they didn’t at the next town hall.) How can we maintain that the republic endured when a centralized super-state has taken its place?

So, once more, who really won the Cold War? The question is better framed when we realize that the battleground where the Free World met Marx was also psychological. Consciously or not, we struggled against an insidious Marxist ideology that was always, at root, an assault on our nation’s character.

The most recent manifestation of victory over the American character shows through the Anthony Weiner-Huma Abedin scandal. This scandal is a paradoxical double whammy of both exposure and cover-up.



True, the barbs of Huma’s ambition – as naked as her husband’s dirty pics – have broken through the gauzy chatter. But cut off from context, they, too, end up perpetuating what is, in fact, the great Huma Abedin cover-up.

It is not enough to analyze Huma Abedin as a “political wife.” Abedin is also a veritable Muslim Brotherhood princess. As such, the ideological implications of her actions – plus her long and privileged access to U.S. policy-making through Hillary Clinton – must be considered, particularly in the context of national security.



If the Abedin-Muslim Brotherhood story rings any bells, it is probably because of Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. Last summer, Bachmann, along with four other House Republicans, raised the issue of Huma Abedin among other examples of possible Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the federal policy-making chain. They asked inspectors general at five departments, including the State Department, to investigate their concerns, but nothing happened – nothing, that is, except that Bachmann was crucified, by Democrats and Republicans alike for asking urgently important questions about national security.

This made the entire subject, already taboo, positively radioactive – with Huma Abedin becoming the poster victim of this supposed “McCarthyism” redux.

End of story. Never mind facts. Never mind also that in his day, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was asking urgently important questions about national security, too.

But don’t worry. We “won” the Cold War. Obamacare, here we come. At this rate, we’ll declare “victory” in the so-called war on terror and, before you know it, become a leading outpost of the caliphate.

Bachmann: Congress Needs To 'Spank The President' And Take Away His Magic Wand

Reps. Michele Bachmann, Steve King, and Louie Gohmert continue their crusade to prevent the passage of any immigration reform legislation by mobilizing the readers of WorldNetDaily with a new article today featuring interviews with each one of them.

In making her case against immigration reform, Bachmann warned that Republicans will lose control of the House of Representatives if any legislation passes because President Obama will "wave his magic wand before 2014" and declare that all immigrants have the right to vote, just as he supposedly did in 2012 when he supposedly declared that anyone here under the age of 30 was allowed to vote which, of course, happened only in Bachmann's fevered imagination.

Claiming that she is "not crying wolf here," Bachmann went on to say that Congress need to give Obama a spanking and take that magic wand out of his hands:

'Gimme My Fence Or Give Me My Money Back': Bachmann Demands A Refund For Her Nearly Completed Border Fence

Yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann called into Glenn Beck's radio program for a discussion about immigration reform legislation during which she urged Beck's audience to call the Congressional switchboard and "melt the phones" with demands to their representatives to refuse to vote for any immigration bill.

Near the end of the interview, around the 10:30 mark, Bachmann grew animated as she declared that "we're not putting up with any fake border security bill. We can't trust the President to enforce the border and so we are not going to take up anything right now until you build us a fence. Build me the fence! Where's my fence that I paid for in 2006? Gimmie my fence or give me my money back":

Yeah, where is Michele's fence? Let's ask the Congressional Research Service (PDF): 

Congress expressly authorized the construction and improvement of fencing and other barriers under Section 102(a) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA; P.L. 104-208, Div. C), which also required (pursuant to Section 102(b)) the completion of a triple-layered fence along the original 14 mile border segment near San Diego. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-367) amended IIRIRA Section 102(b) with a requirement for double-layered fencing along five segments of the Southwest border, totaling about 850 miles. IIRIRA was amended again by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, FY2008 (P.L. 110-161). Under that amendment, the law now requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to construct reinforced fencing “along not less than 700 miles of the southwest border where fencing would be most practical and effective and provide for the installation of additional physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras, and sensors to gain operational control of the southwest border.” The act further specifies, however, that the Secretary of Homeland Security is not required to install fencing “in a particular location along the international border of the United States if the Secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate means to achieve and maintain operational control over the international border at such location.”

As of January 15, 2013, DHS had installed 352 miles of primary pedestrian fencing, 299 miles of vehicle fencing (total of 651 miles), and 36 miles of secondary fencing (see Figure 4). The Border Patrol reportedly had identified a total of 653 miles of the border as appropriate for fencing and barriers.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 called for the construction of 700 miles of border fence and, according to CRS, 653 miles of fencing have been erected. 

So Bachmann's fence is more than 90% complete ... but now she is demanding a refund?

Will Michele Bachmann and Jim DeMint Headline Ex-Gay Pride Month?

Channeling Tobias Fünke, ex-gay activist Christopher Doyle wants everyone to know there are tens of thousands of “former homosexuals.” In an interview with the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today, Doyle declares July to be “Ex-Gay Pride Month” and laments that the “gay activist lobby” is “discriminating [against] us” by “taking away our rights” to not be gay…or something.

OneNewsNow reports that Rep. Michele Bachmann and Rep. Tim Huelskamp, along with Heritage Foundation head and former senator Jim DeMint and Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, plan to address a July 31 ex-gay function organized by Doyle and hosted by the Family Research Council.

According to an invitation to the event [PDF], the four are listed as invited but not confirmed speakers. Other invited speakers include anti-gay activists Star Parker and Harry Jackson.

The only confirmed speakers are Doyle; fellow ex-gay activists DL Foster, who has said Dan Savage should be arrested; and Greg Quinlan, who claims gay people practise “sexual cannibalism.”

Former homosexuals will be in Washington later this month to celebrate the first annual "Ex-Gay Pride Month."

Christopher Doyle, co-founder of Voice of the Voiceless (VoV), explains how his group will cap off the month of July.

"What we're going to be doing is former homosexuals, persons with unwanted same-sex attractions and their families and allies are going to be convening on Washington, D.C. on July 31st to send a clear message to the members of Congress that ex-gays are alive; we do exist," Doyle tells OneNewsNow. "There are tens of thousands of us, and we want to be counted."

Homosexual activists try to erase former homosexuals from the scene, contending that people cannot change if they are attracted to the same gender.

"We are tired of the gay activist lobby discriminating [against] us, marginalizing us and taking away our rights, and we're now fighting back, and we're demanding that if gays are going to get full diversity and equality in America, we also demand that ex-gay voices be heard as well," the VoV co-founder details.

He adds that his organization will lobby Congress throughout the day, then hold a dinner and reception with Equality and Justice for All at Family Research Counsel [sic] Action in the evening for attendees. Featured speakers include Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), former Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver, Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), and several prominent leaders in the ex-gay and faith communities who celebrate the fact that change is possible.

Speaking with Family Research Council head Tony Perkins yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann warned that President Obama is “threatening Israel,” and by doing so is fulfilling biblical prophecies and bringing about the End Times. The Minnesota congresswoman told Perkins that Obama is pressuring Israel to “give up its land to terrorists” allied with Al Qaeda, which will lead to a “final war, destroying and reducing to rubble Israel.” “That’s in the natural, I just believe that as believers in Jesus Christ who see the authority of scripture, I believe...

As the Tea Party celebrates its fifth anniversary, we decided to look at five of the myths that Tea Party supporters, and many pundits, continue to believe about the far-right movement. Myth #1: Tea Party Cares About Economic Stewardship If Tea Party activists believe they are on a crusade to save the American economy, they have an odd way of showing it. The Tea Party was responsible for an economically harmful and utterly pointless government shutdown and has several times threatened economic catastrophe by refusing to raise the debt limit — with their hostage-taking...

Alan Keyes claims that Rep. Michele Bachmann’s plan to sue President Obama doesn’t go far enough and may actually aid Obama’s “dictatorship.” Instead, he wants the Tea Party darling -- who last year accused Obama of “committing impeachable offenses” -- to join his Jesus Christ-endorsed campaign to get congressional candidates to pledge to support the impeachment and removal of the president. “Bachmann and her colleagues should take the impeachment/removal pledge, and campaign as hard as they know how to get every like-minded Senator...

Last year, Rep. Michele Bachmann told James Dobson that "God is going to answer our prayers" and bring about the repeal of Obamacare ... and it looks like she is maintaining her faith, asserting that if Christians will pray, God will deliver the Senate to Republicans in the midterm election so that the party can finally repeal Obamacare. Speaking with the American Family Association's Sandy Rios, Bachmann declared that "God listens to his people and I think if believers humble themselves, confess their sins, and pray, I think God hears from us, hears our hearts and He moves...

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) continues to impress with her incredible ability to make egregiously false statements, this time arguing that Secretary of State John Kerry is supporting war against Israel. Kerry recently suggested that if Mideast peace talks collapse, Israel could face increasing economic boycotts or possibly a third Palestinian uprising. Kerry wasn’t advocating such actions but simply said that such events could occur if negotiations fail. Israel’s own Justice Minister said that Kerry’s statement “does not constitute a threat to the State of Israel... MORE >

Conservative leaders are continuing to rally around Dinesh D’Souza, who has been charged with making illegal “straw donations” to the campaign of a Republican Senate candidate, by claiming — citing zero evidence — that the prosecution is due to D’Souza’s right-wing activism. WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah posted a story today featuring congressmen Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Steve Stockman (R-TX) denigrating the prosecution as political maneuvering by the Obama administration. But the most incendiary rhetoric came from Ben Carson, who compared the... MORE >
