At Friday’s “Presidential Family Forum” hosted by the Iowa conservative group The Family Leader, Mike Huckabee doubled down on his pledge to “ignore the court” and “defy the court” as president by recriminalizing abortion and gay marriage through executive fiats. “I’m convinced the next president should ignore the unconstitutional and illegal rulings of the courts, including that of same-sex marriage, because it is not the law of the land,” Huckabee said. He also reiterated his plan to outlaw abortion with a sweeping ... MORE >

Seven Republican presidential candidates will be travelling to Iowa today to take part in a “presidential family forum” hosted by The Family Leader, a social conservative group led by activist Bob Vander Plaats, who is seen as a kingmaker in the Iowa caucus. Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum will all be speaking at the forum, at which the candidates are arranged family-style around a Thanksgiving table. (At the 2011 forum, Michele Bachmann memorably took it upon herself to serve water to all of the male candidates.) The... MORE >

A couple of weeks ago, we reported extensively on a conference in Iowa organized by extremist pastor Kevin Swanson, at which three Republican presidential candidates joined Swanson on stage shortly before he went off on a series of rants about how the biblical punishment for homosexuality is death, Harry Potter is bringing God’s judgment on America, and how if your gay child gets married you should show up to the wedding covered in cow manure. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow ran a segment on the conference, but other than that, as a number of commentators have noted, the media has... MORE >

In an interview with Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon on his Sirius XM program this morning, Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee insisted that the Obama administration wants to “protect Muslims and the reputation of Muslims more than they want to protect the United States.” Huckabee was addressing the reluctance of President Obama and the Democratic presidential candidates to declare that the U.S. is at war with “radical Islam,” the same linguistic strategy used by President Bush. “So we have both Shia and Sunni radical Muslims, but this is an...

Since the news broke that one of the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks on Paris that killed more than 120 people on Friday may have snuck into France by infiltrating the waves of refugees from Syria’s civil war, at least nine Republican governors and one Democrat have said that their states will refuse to accept Syrian refugees (something that they can’t actually do) and GOP presidential contenders including Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee have called on the president and Congress to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the country as a whole...

In a press gaggle at last weekend’s National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee dismissed concerns about the extremism of its organizer, Kevin Swanson, telling a reporter that he didn’t “have any knowledge” that Swanson backs the death penalty for homosexuality. Indiana broadcaster Joyce Oglesby ran audio of the interaction on her radio program on Friday. An unnamed reporter asked Huckabee, apparently directly after his speech to the conference, about “reports that there are a few pastors speaking her today... MORE >

Scott Lively warns that the Obama administration is working "to rapidly polarize the society to the point of violence by conservatives, which will serve as a pretext for 'defensive' police-state measures to suppress what they have already begun to spin as the rise of neo-Nazism." Larry Tomczak mourns for all of the ways in which President Obama has destroyed America. Steven Andrew says that Christians must vote for Mike Huckabee otherwise "church workers, teachers, and others could end up in jail." For once, Todd Starnes manages to... MORE >
