Evangelical Official Criticizes Bachmann & Huckabee For 'Outrageous' Iran Deal Rhetoric

In an interview with the Christian Post today, Tyler Wigg-Stevenson, the chairman of the World Evangelical Alliance’s Global Task Force on Nuclear Weapons, hailed the Iran deal for offering a “high confidence of inhibiting any move by Iran to a nuclear weapon.”

When the newspaper asked Wigg-Stevenson for his reaction to Mike Huckabee’s claim that the nuclear accord will usher in a second Holocaust and Michele Bachmann’s allegation that it fulfilled Last Days prophecy by paving the way for “World War III,” the World Evangelical Alliance official was not amused.

Noting that many Jewish leaders support the deal, he described Huckabee’s remarks as “pretty outrageous” and “wildly irresponsible,” and expressed bewilderment at Bachmann’s End Times claims: “I don't even know what to say to that.”

"I think that kind of rhetoric is pretty outrageous. The Holocaust is a living memory and I think that because it was Christian Europe that perpetrated the Holocaust on Jews, Christian have an ethical responcibility [sic] forever to take seriously future existential threats to the Jewish people," he said.

While criticizing Iran's denial of how devastating the Holocaust truly was, the WEA chair on Nuclear Weapons said that it is an "outrageous stretch of rhetoric for Huackbee [sic] to invoke the Holocaust based on a treaty that the vast majority of arms control experts in the United States have said is a good treaty."

He added that the GOP presidential candidate's remarks were "wildly irresponsible," and pointed out that there is divided opinion in Israel on whether the nuclear deal is a good development or not.

While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has heavily condemned the lifting of sanctions on Iran, a group of 340 rabbis from "all streams of Judaism" signed a letter in support of the Iran deal earlier this week, opposing the idea that the American Jewish community is united in opposition to the agreement.

As for the idea that the deal will be the fulfillment of biblical End Times prophecy, as former GOP presidential candidate and former Minnesota Rep. Bachmann suggested, Wigg-Stevenson responded: "I don't even know what to say to that."

As a former Baptist minister, who told CP he has since become an Anglican, Wigg-Stevenson noted that "people have for hundreds and hundreds of years been pointing to current events as sure indicators that the End Times are upon us."

He added that statements like Bachmann's are "nothing new," and up to this point have never turned out to be correct.

He said that ultimately the Iran deal bars Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and said that "so how that brings about the End Times is beyond me."

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/18/15

Paranoia-Rama: Nuclear War, Civil War & Cannibalism Coming To America

The prophets have spoken, and the news isn’t good for America. It turns out that war, terrorist attacks and a possible nuclear Armageddon are all on the horizon, and more likely than not it’s Obama’s fault.

Michele Bachmann Predicts 'World War III'; Jan Markell Foresees 'Nuclear Apocalypse'

Michele Bachmann took to “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” this weekend to warn that President Obama has taken the world into the End Times with the Iranian nuclear agreement.

The former Minnesota congresswoman also recounted how she personally urged President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to bomb Iran as “one of the greatest acts of peace” rather than pursue negotiations. The nuclear deal, Bachmann said, “ensures World War III,” adding that Obama is “doing everything in his power to put weapons of mass destruction — the most lethal known to man — in the hands of Israel’s greatest enemy, Iran.”

Markell then proceeded to read the words of Christian Zionist activist Jim Hutchens: “What has not been noted is the fact that our narcissistic, self-absorbed president has prematurely achieved his demonic obsession for a legacy. He will be known throughout eternity as the one who jump-started the process that produced the largest and most destructive nuclear holocaust of humanity, the slaughter of a third of mankind, over two and a third billion people. Read Revelations 6:13-19.”

After agreeing with Bachmann’s assessment that the Iranian deal fulfills biblical prophecy, the radio host added that the UN Security Council’s approval of the Iranian nuclear agreement represented a “huge leap” to “a nuclear apocalypse, the days of the Antichrist and the time of Jacob’s trouble.”

Michele Bachmann: Obama Fulfilled End Times Prophecy With Iran Deal, So Celebrate!

In an interview with Religious Right radio host Jan Markell this weekend, former Rep. Michele Bachmann once again claimed that President Obama is ushering in the End Times, this time citing the nuclear agreement with Iran as proof of the arrival of the Last Days.

Bachmann claimed that the unanimous UN Security Council vote to approve the agreement was “the most important national security event of my lifetime” because it fulfilled the prophecy of Zechariah 12:3 that all the nations of the world will unite against Israel, “with the United States leading that charge.” She added that God and “heaven’s armies” will use groups like AIPAC to defeat the deal in Congress and in doing so “prove to the world His power and His strength.”

“There are consequences to doing things like this against God’s covenant land, there are horrible consequences,” Markell said. “Then you throw in some other things such as the Supreme Court decision back in late June and a lot of other things. Judgment isn’t just coming; judgment is already here.”

Bachmann told listeners that they should feel “encouraged” by the fact that they are living in the End Times, explaining that these dark times are actually the best time to be alive since that means the world will soon come to an end.

“The prophets longed to live in this day that you and I are privileged to live in,” Bachmann said.

Predicting the arrival of nuclear war, Bachmann said that Iran will position its future cache of nuclear weapons in Cuba in order to aim them at the U.S.

Bradlee Dean Warns America That The 'Gay Agenda' Will 'Pervert All Comprehension'

Anti-gay activist Bradlee Dean claimed that LGBT people “are not ruled by law” on Monday’s episode of his “Sons of Liberty” radio program. Dean criticized the media for spreading the “gay agenda,” and attempting to “pervert all comprehension” and “confuse the younger generations.”

Dean briefly touched on the recent Supreme Court marriage decision, advising listeners that “nothing is good enough” for the LGBT community. “You’re gonna be destroyed by those you tolerate,” Dean warned, before urging his followers to “hold these people responsible because they are sick in the mind.”

His rant also included his theory that society is “using the Bruce Jenners of the world” to distract Americans from God’s teaching. “We’re telling you to wake up!” Dean shouted, before continuing into a tirade against the LGBT community.

Though not a politician himself, Dean has regularly worked with fellow Minnesotan  Michele Bachmann. Dean publicly advocates against LGBT rights, and has previously suggested that gay marriage would usher in another Holocaust.

Far-Right: Flee America Before God Destroys Us For Gay Marriage!

Religious Right activists have compared today’s gay marriage ruling to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and Pearl Harbor, warning of imminent divine judgment and civil war.

“No matter what, the Court’s ruling does not upend millenia of truth,” former Rep. Michele Bachmann said. “Many Americans will choose to follow God’s ways rather than this Court and they should suffer no penalty for doing so. The Court has flung open the gate to lawsuits from those pushing the gay agenda against those who disagree with same sex marriage.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert said God will withdraw his protection from America:

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, reacted with guns blzaing, calling the ruling a “civilization-changing decision that destroys our nation’s heritage of Biblical marriage. May God forgive our Supreme Court majority for its arrogance and its self-apotheosis.”

Invoking biblical history, he warned, “Both Moses and Jesus stated that it was God’s law that ‘a man will leave his father and mother and a woman will leave her home and the two will come together as one.’ That defined marriage … The Supreme Court ruling is heartbreaking for the turmoil it will mean for our nation’s future.”

Gohmert indicated two justices should have recused themselves, observing, “It is clear beyond any doubt that Justices Kagan and Ginsberg have held exceedingly strong opinions that same-sex marriages were constitutional by virtue of their having performed them.”

He further warned, “[I]f Moses, Jesus, and contributors to the Bible were correct, God’s hand of protection will be withdrawn as future actions from external and internal forces will soon make clear. I will do all I can to prevent such harm, but I am gravely fearful that the stage has now been set.”

On American Family Radio, Crane Durham said that America is now under “tyranny” as a result of the court’s decision.

One caller said that he is prepared to “abandon ship” and flee America for a nation like Costa Rica or the Philippines, while another caller said that God is about to punish all of the people, such as President Obama and Hillary Clinton, who are celebrating the court’s ruling.

Conservative author Carl Gallups told WorldNetDaily that the Supreme Court’s ruling invites God to wrath upon America:

“This is the most monumental ruling of any court, by any nation in the history of the world,” Gallups said. “The spiritual and world-reaching ramifications will be prolific and devastating.”



“This ruling may prove to be the final death-knell of divine judgment upon our once great nation. For God’s word clearly declares, ‘What God has joined together, let not man put asunder’ (Mark 10:9). Man (The U.S. Supreme Court) has now spit upon God’s word and ‘put asunder’ what God declared as the standard for marriage – one man and one woman joined before God for life.”

Though he has been preaching for 30 years that this day would soon be upon the nation, and received much ridicule and lambasting for doing so, Gallups said he is “deeply saddened that it is now here – among our children and grandchildren.”

“These are the beginnings of the very last days,” he added. “I know I will be further mocked for uttering these words, but I unapologetically come from a biblical world view. I know what the Word of God says — I know what Jesus Himself said.”

Bachmann: Immigrants Should 'Join America's Predominant Christian Religion'

In interviews with WorldNetDaily today, Michele Bachmann, Phyllis Schlafly and Ann Coulter claim that the increase in the number of Americans identifying as social liberals is the result of immigration.

People who identify as social liberals, the three explain, reject conservative and Christian values, and therefore aren’t true Americans.

Bachmann is especially upset, lamenting that “it is severely frowned upon to suggest new immigrants join America’s predominant Christian religion.”

For the first time, Gallup found the number of Americans describing their views on social issues as “liberal” or “very liberal” was the same as those describing themselves as “conservative” or “very conservative,” with both sides at 31 percent.

But, in its analysis, Gallup neglected to mention a key factor that could explain the entire apparent shift in attitudes: immigration.

“Of course, this is a result of immigration,” Ann Coulter told WND. “Liberals haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They couldn’t win elections with Americans, so they brought in ringers.” Phyllis Schlafly told WND, “The polls don’t reflect the ‘changing’ attitudes of Americans; the polls reflect the attitudes of our changing population.”

“Obama has admitted millions of people who simply reject traditional American social norms. All the changes reported by Gallup can be attributed to the recent unprecedented immigration,” she added.

Michele Bachmann noted how the concept of assimilation has gone by the wayside, telling WND, “Immigrants from Third-World nations aren’t expected to learn American values norms or culture, much less the English language.”



“The explanation for the Gallup Poll report is that Obama has been bringing in so many foreigners who are not conservatives of any kind, who come from countries where government manages their lives, and who reject the idea of Christian values guiding our social mores,” Schlafly told WND.

Bachmann echoed that, noting, “In fact, it is severely frowned upon to suggest new immigrants join America’s predominant Christian religion.”

She also pointed to a generational shift, in which “The millennials are taking their turn at driving and leading American society, and part of that generation is made up of Americans who embrace the belief that says all cultures and values are equal. That belief says Third-World squalid conditions can’t be condemned in favor of Western norms.”

WorldNetDaily Suggests Huma Abedin Contributed To Benghazi Attack

Huma Abedin, a senior aide to Hillary Clinton, has long been the target of a smear campaign by right-wing commentators who claim that she is aiding terrorists and a secret agent of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, a myth that made its way into the halls of Congress thanks to then-Rep. Michele BachmannBachmann’s claims, which were echoed by a small handful of her colleagues, were so bizarre and unfounded that they were roundly criticized by her fellow Republicans. 

But lacking evidence hasn’t stopped outlets such as WorldNetDaily from repeating them, as today the conspiracy theory website ran an article, “Hillary’s Top Aide With Terror Sties Saw All Emails,” implying that Abedin had a suspicious interest in information about Amb. Christopher Stevens’ whereabouts in Benghazi.

WND has previously referred to Abedin as the “Muslim Brotherhood princess.”

It was Abedin who forwarded to Clinton’s personal email address details about the initial establishment of the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, updates about security threats to both the mission and Ambassador Chris Stevens, intelligence on the growing terrorist threat in Libya and insider information on the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi.

Abedin was privy to emails that contained the exact movements of Stevens while he was stationed in arguably one of the most dangerous zones in the world for any American diplomat. WND previously reported on Abedin’s personal and family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other to Islamic supremacists.

The connections not only extend to her mother and father, who are both deeply tied to al-Qaida fronts, but to Abedin herself, as WND previously reported in a series of exposés.



The email stated the interim Libyan government “conducted a raid on a house/storage facility and found and arrested an Egyptian cell reportedly there for the purpose of attacking hotels.”

Despite the threat, the email revealed Stevens “still feels comfortable in the hotel,” meaning the email exposed that the ambassador would continue to stay there.

“They are looking into the idea of moving into a villa, but that is some way off,” the email continued. “Based on discussion with DS yesterday, the hotel remains the safest location.”

Startlingly, the email contained information about Stevens’ exact movements, including that he “will be meeting with MFA in one hour and will make a written request for better security at the hotel and for better security-related coordination.”

Another sent to Clinton from Abedin detailed Stevens’ movements regarding his hotel stay.



A March 27, 2011, email forwarded by Abedin to Clinton contained updates about the plans for the Benghazi mission’s establishment.



Another email forwarded to Clinton by Abedin briefed Clinton about such specific matters as mission staffing and the temporary rotation of personnel at the mission.

End Times Fanatics Defend Bachmann: 'They Don't Want To Believe The Truth'

Over the weekend, the host of the End Times radio program where Michele Bachmann repeatedly asserted that President Obama was ushering in the End Times defended the former congresswoman’s comments.

“Understanding the Times” host Jan Markell chided Obama, who joked about the remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and others who poked fun at Bachmann’s comments, calling them intolerant people who despise Bachmann for merely “telling the inconvenient truth.”

“Those who celebrate diversity have been busy showing a remarkable display of a lack of diversity in recent weeks from the president all the way on down,” Markell said. “The tolerant ones are having violent fits of intolerance, the open-minded left have once again revealed themselves to be 100 percent close-minded.”

Of course, Markell didn’t consider the fact that Bachmann’s assertion that the president is responsible for bringing about the Apocalypse might also be categorized as a personal attack that represents gross intolerance.

Producer Larry Kutzler agreed with Markell’s assessment: “Michele was right in what she said, it’s just that they don’t want to believe the truth.”

Bachmann: The Clinton Foundation Is 'An International Money Laundering Ring'

Steve Malzberg interviewed Michele Bachmann on his Newsmax radio program yesterday about the supposed Clinton Foundation "scandal," which the former congresswoman addressed with her typical nuance and perspicacity.

"This Clinton Foundation," she said, "is in effect an international money laundering ring to benefit the Clintons personally" so that they can "live the life of potentates."

"What's the best way to continue that lifestyle?" Bachmann asked, rhetorically. "Start an international foundation and get people to give you big money. But they use poor people as human shields for their pompous lifestyle":

Rick Wiles Furious With 'Uncircumcised Philistine' Obama For Making A Joke About Michele Bachmann

“Trunews” host Rick Wiles is joining other right-wing pundits in taking offense at President Obama’s joke at the White House Correspondents' Dinner about ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann’s contention that his policies are bringing the world closer to World War III, the End Times and the Rapture.

On the Friday edition of his show, Wiles attacked the “uncircumcised philistine in the White House” along with the “adoring, obedient, subservient, lapdog news reporters” who attended the dinner. (In 1 Samuel, David refers to Goliath as the “uncircumcised philistine” who seeks to “defy the armies of the living God”).

He said that Obama is just as “evil” as King Sennacherib, who went to war with Judah, and similarly is “leading people into sin against God.”

War And Terrorists And Floods, Oh My! The Right's Five Worst Predictions About Marriage Equality

Mike Huckabee thinks Christianity will soon be outlawed to make room for gay rights. Ted Cruz fears “liberal fascism; and a pro-gay “jihad” are destroying liberty. Bobby Jindal believes freedom will soon be extinguished as reality stars lose their apparent constitutional right to appear on television.

These GOP presidential hopefuls are not shying away from the gay marriage issue, which comes as no surprise since the GOP’s right-wing base has been whipped into a frenzy by conservative talk radio hosts and activists who have insisted that freedom will be no more if the Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage.

Here are five of the far right’s wildest predictions about what would happen if gay marriage becomes legal nationwide:

1) War!

Several Religious Right pundits believe that a Supreme Court ruling striking down same-sex marriage bans would spark a full-blown rebellion, if not a civil war.

Focus on the Family founder James Dobson said that the country could witness a second civil war over the Supreme Court’s decision, while Mat Staver of the conservative legal group Liberty Counsel said the court “could cause another civil war” if it legalizes same-sex marriage.

The Texas chapter of Eagle Forum warned the Supreme Court in an amicus brief that a ruling that “imposes homosexual marriage” on the country “would cause vastly more conflict” than the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision. Not to be outdone, conservative activist Alan Keyes predicted that marriage equality will lead to mass murder and “the separation and dissolution of the United States.”

At least one conservative author thinks that the states of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina should consider seceding from the U.S. and establish their own country in order to preserve gay marriage bans. This new country, naturally, will be named “Reagan.”

2) Terrorism!

David Lane, a conservative political organizer with close ties to the GOP and several Republican presidential candidates, has warned that God will soon usher in a wave of terrorist attacks as punishment for America’s acceptance of homosexuality and abortion. Infuriated by “homosexuals praying” at President Obama’s second inauguration, Lane claimed that God can show the country mercy but it will be a “very painful process,” including “car bombs in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Des Moines, Iowa.”

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer warned that because America’s “gay gestapo” is acting like the men of Sodom who tried to rape angels, God will “run out of patience with the United States” and “use pagan armies to discipline his people if they turn from him in rebellion and disobedience and descend into debauchery.”

“What if God will use the pagan armies of Allah to discipline the United States for our debauchery?” he wondered.

Neither prediction holds a candle, however, to talk show host Rick Wiles’ frequent prediction that gay rights will lead to a nuclear attack on the country.

3) Apocalypse!

Pastor Robert Jeffress, a Fox News contributor and author of “Countdown to the Apocalypse,” has called gay marriage “the greatest sign of the End Times that we see in our country right now,” warning that the Supreme Court will embolden pro-gay “extremists” to “make us all bow down and bless what God has called a perversion.”

Janet Porter, an anti-gay activist who held a rally outside of the Supreme Court yesterday, has said that “we are uniquely positioned for the return of Christ like no other time in history” as a result of the Supreme Court marriage cases.

Another conservative pundit, Linda Harvey, claimed in an interview with End Times broadcaster Jan Markell that the legal and political success of gay marriage advocates means that “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America — or both.” 

Michele Bachmann, a frequent guest on Markell’s program, told the End Times evangelist that legal abortion and gay marriage, along with President Obama’s foreign policies, are among the signs that we are entering the Last Days. God will remove his “hedge of protection” from America as punishment for its increasingly “pagan” culture, she warned, and “and we will suffer the consequences as a result.”

4) Flood!

Gay rights advocates are not only turning America into Sodom and Gomorrah (as Pat Robertson claims), but they are also risking the destruction of the planet, argue some far-right pundits who believe that Noah’s Flood was divine punishment for homosexuality. Scott Lively, the pastor best known for his work promoting anti-gay laws in countries like Russia and Uganda, claims that “the Great Flood of Noah in Genesis 6-9 was precipitated by homosexual sin.”

“We need to remember that in the time leading up to the Flood what the rabbis teach about the last straw for God before He brought the Flood was when they started writing wedding songs to homosexual marriage,” Lively said, “and Jesus said that you’ll know the End Times because it will be like the days of Noah. There’s never been a time in the history of the world since before the Flood when homosexual marriage has been open and celebrated, and that’s another sign that I believe that we’re close to the end…. I think this is the issue of the End Times: homosexuality.”

Another pastor claimed God “brought the flood” because he “knew that the people of the earth were going to destroy themselves through same-sex marriage.” Porter has similiarly called gay marriage “the final straw that led to the Flood.”

5) Antichrist!

The destruction of freedom and America at the hands of gay rights advocates, some Religious Right voices warn, will eventually lead to the coming of the Antichrist.

Jeffress said that the purported gay persecution of Christians “will pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist, to persecute and martyr Christians without any repercussions whatsoever,” while Gordon Klingenschmitt, a televangelist and Colorado Republican state representative, called LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination laws a “sign that the End Times are really upon us. When the Antichrist rises up to persecute Christians and behead us and throw us in jail for our Christian faith, you don’t think it’s going to be over things like this?”

Lively explicitly linked the coming of the Antichrist to the marriage cases before the Supreme Court, writing that “if we are on the verge of ‘birth pangs’ we will likely know it by Passover, but in either case we should brace for serious judgment on the United States in the form of natural and/or man-made disaster if the Supreme Court established sodomy as a basis for marriage under our constitution.” The one who will “not yet be exposed to the world as the Antichrist” will emerge around September of this year, Lively wrote, noting that “the Biblically literate would recognize him.”

“Even as the rest of the world lauds its ‘savior’ and embraces his government, the Christian believers (and Torah-faithful Jews) would be increasingly reviled and hunted,” Lively wrote. “I don’t think there is any question, Biblically, that the cultural celebration of ‘gay marriage’ portends judgment from God. The only real question in my mind is whether it truly signals the imminent ‘beginning of sorrows’ or is just another step in the path leading to God’s wrath at a later time.”

Right-Wing Pundits: Obama Persecuting Bachmann With 'End Times' Joke

At the White House Correspondents Dinner this weekend, President Obama made a joke about ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann’s repeated refrain that he is bringing about the Last Days, and the former Minnesota congresswoman is not pleased. She and other Religious Right pundits told the End Times outlet WorldNetDaily that the president’s joke was an act of anti-Christian persecution and suggested that people who disagree with Bachmann’s remarks are really denouncing all of Christianity.

“The blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are forewarnings of what is to come in 2016,” author Mark Blitz told WND. “President Obama, I believe, was only half joking when he made his comments.”

Another Religious Right commentator, Carl Gallups, said, “Regardless of how uncomfortable Bachmann’s comments might have made some feel, the biblical fact is that when a nation turns its back on Israel and at the same time celebrates, promotes, and legalizes homosexual marriage it is inviting end of days judgment upon itself.”

Radio host Jan Markell, on whose show Bachmann made the remarks, at least saw the bright side of Obama’s joke, telling WND: “God has His way of getting out a message about the end-of-days scenario.”

“The Bible is filled with exciting information about living life today and in the future, both in this life and in the life to come,” Bachmann told WND. “Any message that brings people closer to God’s wonderful plans for our lives is a good thing.

“God’s word is true and brings freedom and wholeness to all who read it and believe in Him.”



“Rarely has this nation witnessed the kind of hubris, arrogance and callousness as we did at the President’s Correspondents Dinner. President Obama and his left-wing supporters in the media think it is absolutely hilarious that his policies could have fostered in an apocalyptic atmosphere in the earth,” said Richardson, author of New York Times-bestseller “The Islamic Antichrist” and director of the film “End Times Eye Witness.”



“I am rarely offended by good humor, especially upon consideration of the context in which it is spoken. But I think what is unnerving about Obama to so many Christians is his consistent mocking of Christianity, the scriptures, the basic Christian message, and even the Judeo-Christian heritage of America. A quick search on Google reveals the veracity of these concerns,” said Gallups, author of “The Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation.”

...

Markell said she has known Bachmann for 20 years as a woman whose primary goal is “glorifying God and getting people into the Kingdom.”

“To see her hammered and trashed by the left, and even some on the right such as ‘The Christian Post,’ is very grievous,” said Markell, co-author of “Trapped In Hitler’s Hell” with Holocaust survivor Anita Dittman, which has also been made into a film.

“What is there about a godly Christian woman that is so offensive to so many today when they are simply telling the truth as Michele is?”

But two solid weeks of trash talking has accomplished more to get Bachmann’s message out than any single interview on a Christian radio station ever could, Markell said.

“God has His way of getting out a message about the end-of-days scenario. If he has to use a donkey such as the left-wing outfits that have trashed Michele for two weeks, then I thank God for His creativity,” she said. “One way or another, He will get His message out that He is coming soon. I am thankful that Michele Bachmann and I, who have teamed up for many years, can be used in this manner. God is calling all watchmen on the wall.”

Joseph Farah, WND founder, chief editor and CEO, believes Obama’s mocking of Bachmann is just the latest example of his disdain for anyone who actually believes what he reads in the Bible and is willing to discuss it publicly.

“Michele Bachmann, like me, was profoundly impacted by the stunning revelations of the New York Times-bestseller ‘The Harbinger’ by Jonathan Cahn about the way America has been inadvertently re-enacting an ancient script written and played out during the fall of Israel,” Farah said.

“To Obama and most other non-Christians, this is just silly superstitious stuff – the kind of thing you make jokes about for cheap laughs at the White House Correspondents Dinner. But remember who the cheap laughs come from – people who look at what Obama has done over the last six years and see success, progress, achievement, prosperity, wisdom. If that’s what you see in Obama’s America, then you will surely think it’s funny that the nation is threatened by God’s judgment for disobedience and turning from His ways.

“Time will tell who is right – and I don’t think it will be a long time before we know,” Farah added.



“Regardless of how uncomfortable Bachmann’s comments might have made some feel, the biblical fact is that when a nation turns its back on Israel and at the same time celebrates, promotes, and legalizes homosexual marriage it is inviting end of days judgment upon itself,” Gallups added. “The Word of God is clear concerning these matters.”



“Michele Bachmann is absolutely right that the church needs to be like the sons of Issachar who had an understandings of the times so they knew what Israel ought to do,” Biltz said. He said the church needs to “wake up to the times we are in,” as 2016 “will be one of the most pivotal years in prophetic history. The blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are forewarnings of what is to come in 2016. President Obama, I believe, was only half joking when he made his comments.”

Michele Bachmann: Obama Administration 'Persecuting' Conservatives

While allegations that the IRS subjected conservative groups to special scrutiny have completely unraveled, the right-wing Truth in Action Ministries is still standing by them, releasing a video this week featuring ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann, radio host Bryan Fischer and former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land about the Obama administration’s supposed misuse of the tax agency for political purposes.

Bachmann alleges in the video that “the Internal Revenue Service took it upon themselves to persecute American citizens based upon their beliefs, whether they’re conservative, whether they were Christian.” Land, claiming that the phony scandal was much worse than Watergate, demands that IRS officials “go to jail” for their purported attempts to “diminish the freedoms of American citizens.”

Fischer, for his part, claims in the video that the IRS became the government’s “religious police.” “Leftists and bureaucrats in the federal government are now trying to use the IRS to repress and to punish religious speech they don’t like and political speech they don’t like,” he says. “And now they are looking at cracking down on churches, they’ve made some kind of secret deal with an atheist organization that they are going to monitor churches for any kind of political communication from the pulpit, and this is beginning to sound a lot more like communist China or communist Vietnam than it is the United States of America.”

The video concludes with Land calling the IRS the Obama administration’s “weapon … against those who would dare to criticize the government.”

“It’s like pointing a gun at your political opponents,” he says. “That is a violation of so many of the Bill of Rights it would take more time than we have to discuss them.”

Watch highlights here:

Bachmann: Rapture Imminent Thanks To Gay Marriage & Obama

In an interview with End Times broadcaster Jan Markell that was aired this weekend, former Rep. Michele Bachmann said that people should “not despair but rejoice” that the world has reached the “midnight hour” and that “we in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the Rapture of the church.”

The former Republican congresswoman from Minnesota said that President Obama’s policies, including support for marriage equality and nuclear negotiations with Iran, are to blame for the world’s imminent demise. “We need to realize how close this clock is to getting towards the midnight hour,” Bachmann said. “Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”

Bachmann made similar comments in the first half of her interview with Markell, which aired last week, insisting that Obama’s presidency will bring about natural and economic disasters along with the arrival of the Last Days.

After Bachmann said that Obama intends to “lift up the agenda of radical Islam,” Markell added that legal abortion and marriage equality for gays and lesbians are bringing about divine punishment on America.

“You are right,” Bachmann responded, lamenting that God will soon lift His “hedge of protection” over “pagan” America “and we will suffer the consequences as a result.”

“That’s why so many Christians I think are sad and despairing because we know what the word of God says,” she said. “But it is also a chastening as individual believers for our good and that, to me, is extremely exciting.”

Walid Shoebat: Bachmann Criticism Shows US Is 'Behaving As An Islamist Society'

In an interview with far-right radio host Pete Santilli last month, anti-Muslim activist Walid Shoebat cited former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s conspiracy theories about former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to assert that Clinton was promoting the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood in the State Department, adding that criticism of such conspiracy theories shows that “we are really behaving as an Islamist society.”

Shoebat, who has previously pushed bizarre conspiracy theories about Abedin, said tha​t criticism of Bachmann from people like Republican Sen. John McCain shows that “the corruption that goes on in Turkey is happening in the U.S.”

Shoebat had a sympathetic audience in Santilli, who in 2013 infamously called for Clinton to be “ tried, convicted and shot in the vagina.”

There’s no eye looking at what Clinton is doing with the Muslim Brotherhood. And the moment you say anything about it, I mean Bachmann talked about the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in America and she was attacked by McCain, by even, RINOs began to attack her the moment she brought up the issue.

The moment you talk about it, you are labeled as an Islamophobe, you are labeled as a hatemonger. But what about the evidence? The evidence isn’t even examined. In other words, what we see happening in this country is that we are really behaving as an Islamist society. We are very much akin to Turkey. Look at Turkey, the corruption that goes on in Turkey is happening in the U.S.

Bachmann: End Times Are Here, Thanks Obama

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann suggested in an interview this weekend that President Obama’s “anti-Israel” and “pro-the goals of Islamic jihad” policies have brought the world into the biblical End Times. 

Bachmann made the comments in an interview with radical talk show host Jan Markell in which she also warned that God is about to punish the U.S. due to President Obama’s foreign policy.

Insisting that Obama lied about disputed reports that Iran’s supreme leader issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons, Bachmann said that “our president is as ignorant of Islamic scripture as he is of Islamic history, or he is trying to intentionally lie to the American people.”

“He constantly talks about perverting Islam,” she said, “but we have literally centuries and centuries of theory and practice of the Koran and the Hadith, which are traditions, the works of Islamic jurisprudence, that say one complete, consistent truth and that’s that they want to have a nuclear weapon,” Bachmann said (apparently forgetting that nuclear weapons have been in existence for less than one century).

“There is no fatwa out there,” she added. “This is a lie, in my opinion, that the president is perpetrating. But that’s what we’ve seen, a doctrine of deception. From the time Barack Obama has come in, I have witnessed firsthand a doctrine of deception.”

However, Bachmann saw a silver lining in all of this in that now the End Times are upon us: “The good news that I want to transition to is that, remember the prophets said in the Old Testament, they longed to look into the days that we live in, they long to be a part of these days. That’s why these are not fearful times, these are the most exciting days in history.”

“Every single day we can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent,” Bachmann continued. “We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus. So do we despair? The despairing is that we see that our world is not going the way of salvation and the way of blessing, the world is embracing degeneracy.”

Bachmann told Markell that just as some Muslim leaders are pulling for the Apocalypse, Christian pastors must also preach about “God’s time clock.”

Bachmann: God Punishing US With 'Economic Disasters, Natural Disasters' Due To Obama Presidency

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on the End Times broadcast “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she claimed that America is facing the wrath of God in the form of natural disasters” because of President Obama’s Mideast policy. Later in the program, Bachmann said that Obama has thrown the world into the End Times.

Warning that Obama “embraces the ideas of an economic Marxist” and “a one-world-government point of view,” she said the president is deliberately weakening the country. Even worse, Bachmann claimed, Obama “in effect declared war on Israel from the United States” and is paving the way for divine “cursing” of America.

“If the United States turns its back on Israel, as our president is doing today, in my opinion, we cannot continue to indulge in the fantasy that the United States will be free from receiving the negative blowback, or curses, in biblical parlance, that could come our way and they could be severe,” Bachmann said.

After Markell pointed to economic troubles, the California drought and “unprecedented snowstorms on the East Coast” as signs of such divide punishment, Bachmann told her that such occurrences “are only the threshold or down payment.”

“If we actually turn our back on Israel, as we are seeing Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of pushback in the United States, negative consequences. I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true and I believe that what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind,” Bachmann said. “We could see economic disasters, natural disasters. The United States does not want to be in that position and unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama, not only once but twice, and the people have to rise up against his actions and demand their leaders take steps accordingly.”

In previous interviews with Markell, Bachmann has claimed that Obama is a supporter of Al Qaeda who wants to impose Sharia law and restore the Caliphate.

Bachmann: Obama 'Has Been The Best Friend Of Terrorists'

Former congressman Michele Bachmann is still insisting that President Obama is promoting Islamic terrorism, bizarrely asserting that the president is supporting both the Shiite regime in Iran and Sunni extremists. In an interview yesterday with News Talk Florida that was first flagged by Raw Story, Bachmann went so far as to say that Obama is the “best friend” of terrorists.

After suggesting — falsely — that Obama intends to remove Iran from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, Bachmann said that the president is putting “Iran in the position where they would have the firepower to be able take out not only Israel, but they would have the firepower to use intercontinental ballistic missiles against the United States with nuclear-tipped warheads.”

“This virtually guarantees, in my opinion, a World War III,” she continued, “and that alone would qualify Barack Obama for being the worst president that the United States has ever had to endure.”

“He has now guaranteed that Iran will have a nuclear weapon,” she added.

“The Obama doctrine has been to offer aid and comfort to our enemies while he has cut off our allies,” Bachmann said. “Everything that he has done has been to lift up the agenda of Islamic jihad. He has furthered Islamic jihad across the world, and we’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Bachmann claimed that Obama “has been the best friend of terrorists” and “has aided and abetted the rise of — the goals of terrorists across the world.”

Yesterday, Kyle pointed out Bryan Fischer’s appearance on Morning Edition, where he was billed simply as a representative of the American Family Association. If a respected media outlet like NPR is going to give a platform to someone like Fischer, it needs to make clear the long record of hate speech he brings with him. PFAW President Michael B. Keegan reached out to Alicia Shepard, the NPR Ombudsman with this note: Dear Ms. Shepard: I was surprised yesterday to hear the voice of Bryan Fischer, Director of Issue Analysis at the American Family Association, on Morning Edition.

I think that it is pretty safe to assume that Rep. Michele Bachmann has absolutely no understanding of what the term "negative rights" actually means because, if she did, she probably would not be making ridiculous statements like this: MORE >

Rep. Michele Bachmann speaks at the Values Voter Summit, where she says that "the government doesn't create money, we do" and explains how all our powers are derived from God, some of which we give to government while reserving the remainder of that power for themselves ... or something like that ... but that is what is going to toss the Democrats out in November: MORE >

We seems to have entered into a self-perpetuating loop here at Right Wing Watch regarding our coverage of Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association and his upcoming appearance alongside the likes of Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Mike Pence, Bob McDonnell, Newt Gingrich, and Michele Bachmann at the Values Voter Summit.

Today, People For the American Way issued a statement calling out all those conservative leaders who will attending the upcoming Values Voter Summit and sharing the stage with notorious bigot Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association and chronicled the myriad of outrageously offensive things Fischer has said about gays and Muslims and others. Needless to say, Fischer is not particularly pleased with our statement and dedicated a portion of his radio program today to "defending" himself ... and in doing so, only helped to make our point even clearer. Fischer took particular... MORE >
