Donald Trump: Immigrants Destroying America, Middle Class Ready To Rebel

Last night on “The Steve Deace Show,” Donald Trump spoke to the Iowa-based host about how this time, he is really serious about running for president. He told Deace that Republicans have failed to stand up to Democratic officials who “don’t know what they’re doing” and “just want to keep taxing.”

“They talk and they continue to talk,” Trump said. “You see this huge flair of talk and then nothing happens.” And if there is one thing the almost-1988, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012 presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn’t like, it’s talk without action. If things don’t turn around soon, Trump warned, immigrants may destroy America and the middle class will rise up.

“People are flowing into this country by the millions, not by the thousands, by the millions, and destroying the fabric of the country,” Trump warned. “We’re talking about the highest-taxed nation in the world and the middle class is just getting decimated. I mean, everybody is hitting the middle class and something has to happen because we’re not going to have a middle class or the middle class is going to do something that you and I and nobody else is going to like and who can blame them? They are getting decimated.”

Steve Deace: Arrest Trans Woman Using Gym Locker Room

Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace is furious about the decision of a Michigan Planet Fitness to revoke the membership of a woman who repeatedly complained about a transgender woman who hung her coat in the women’s locker room.

Deace, who frequently has Republican presidential hopefuls appear on his radio program, laments in a BarbWire column today that “we just got done fighting a fake war on women because one spoiled brat didn’t want to pay for her birth control pills, but now a woman who wants a women’s locker room to be free of creepy naked men gets tossed into the Rainbow Jihad’s leper colony.”

“So instead of getting the handcuffs put on him, the gender-confused individual was protected by the gym’s ‘no-judgement’ policy,” Deace writes, teasing that it “turns out cross dressers and trannies are now elevated to the status of Rosa Parks in our crazy new normal.”

Deace adds that people fighting rape and sexual assault should be worried that transgender people are allowed to enter Planet Fitness locker rooms since when he was a teenager he “could’ve been quite ‘sincere’ about my gender confusion if it meant an eyeful in the girls’ locker room.”

Turns out cross dressers and trannies are now elevated to the status of Rosa Parks in our crazy new normal. A Planet Fitness in Michigan gave us our latest example of how far down the rabbit hole goes, when a woman had her gym membership revoked because she complained about a man using the women’s locker room.

Of course, 15 minutes ago such a man would’ve been arrested on site. But “the right side of history” evolves fast, my friends. Best to put down those Bibles and constitutions weighing you down so you can keep up.

So instead of getting the handcuffs put on him, the gender-confused individual was protected by the gym’s “no-judgement” policy. The crucial part of that policy states that a “sincere, self-reported gender identity” will be respected in place of things like, say, sanity. It’s too bad this lunacy wasn’t in place when I was a teenage boy, because I could’ve been quite “sincere” about my gender confusion if it meant an eyeful in the girls’ locker room.

It’s becoming so hard to keep track of which sacred cow is the most super-duper sincere, and thus the trump card in our game of Russian identity roulette. We just got done fighting a fake war on women because one spoiled brat didn’t want to pay for her birth control pills, but now a woman who wants a women’s locker room to be free of creepy naked men gets tossed into the Rainbow Jihad’s leper colony.



Yvette Cormier, the gal who needs to find a new health club, must wonder what planet she’s living on. A rape is supposed to be happening around every corner on college campuses, and I’m told awful men keep taking 23 cents away from hard working girls, but a dude puts on some lipstick and stockings and voila!

Bobby Jindal: Obama Wiping Out Freedom Through 'Secularization'

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal spoke yesterday to conservative talk show host Steve Deace about the recent “Pastors and Pews” summit in Iowa, one of several gatherings of pastors and GOP candidates organized by Christian Nationalist activist David Lane.

Jindal said that while President Obama is destroying the economy with “$18 trillion of debt, Obamacare and EPA regulations,” the greatest threat to America is Obama’s push for “secularization.”

Such “secularization,” Jindal warned, will eliminate religious freedom and “without religious liberty there is no freedom of speech, there is no freedom of association, it is worse than this president is bankrupting our country financially, morally, as well as our foreign policy standing. All of that is true but it’s worse than that. He’s trying to change the idea of America.”

He lamented that “we have never before had a president this ideologically extreme, who does not believe in American exceptionalism, does not believe in the American dream that you and I were taught, does not believe in religious liberty and has effectively, for six years, done everything he could to change our culture on all three of those areas to become a new country, a new American dream, a new conception of liberty.”

Deace said he hoped Religious Right events like Lane’s would help evangelicals find a “general” to lead them to save America from destruction.

Ken Cuccinelli: 'We're Being Invaded…One Person At A Time'

Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who now heads up the Senate Conservatives Fund, told talk show host Steve Deace in an interview yesterday that America is being “invaded” by immigrants “one person at a time” and that President Obama is guilty of “encouraging the invasion” with his executive actions.

Discussing the decision of Republican leaders in Congress to ally with Democrats to pass a Department of Homeland Security funding bill, Deace asked Cuccinelli: “Is there any affront to the Constitution this president could commit that would cause the current Republican leaders in Congress to really, substantively attempt to do something about it and stop it? Is there anything he could do? Anything?”

“I can’t think of one,” Cuccinelli responded. “I mean, other than surrendering to everybody — I mean, we’re being invaded. We’re being invaded, right? One person at a time, we’re being invaded. And the president isn’t protecting us from invasion, he’s encouraging the invasion, and he’s doing it unconstitutionally."

“He’s assumed power after power that’s allocated to Congress and they’ve supinely rolled over under the Republican surrendership of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy, and there’s no reason to expect that’s going to change," he continued.

“I mean, what’s more important that’s coming up than what we’ve seen in the last week or two months?" he asked. "Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Not to say that the other things we’re going to deal with in coming months aren’t important, Steve. It’s just that clearly what we’ve been through both constitutionally, in terms of our sovereignty and the rule of law, you’re never going to top that.”

Cuccinelli used similar rhetoric in a Facebook post last year in support of then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s questionable decision to send the Texas National Guard to the southern border to confront Central American child migrants. “The border states that are being directly invaded by illegal immigrants – Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico – may constitutionally deal with the invasion themselves, at least as it relates to attempting to stop the flow across their own borders,” Cuccinelli wrote at the time. “And there is nothing President Obama or those in Washington can do to stop any of these states, if they are determined to act.”

Huckabee: Obama Has An 'Innate Desire To See America A Weaker Country'

Mike Huckabee stopped by Steve Deace’s radio program yesterday to discuss Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress and the ongoing negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program.

Claiming that Obama doesn’t see how dangerous Iran is, Deace asked Huckabee: “Is it because he doesn’t love America? Is it because he has a worldview that blinds him to the realities of good vs. evil?”

“I believe he does not want America to be the superpower that we have been,” Huckabee responded. “It’s almost as if he’s afraid of that. He believes that America would be better off as ‘one of the boys’ instead of the big brother.”

Huckabee went on to blame House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for turning the American relationship with Israel into “a political and partisan issue, God help us all.”

When Deace claimed that the parties no longer agree that “Iran cannot have a nuclear weapon,” Huckabee agreed: “What has changed is Barack Obama’s influence over foreign policy. What has changed is his innate desire to see America a weaker country rather than a stronger country. And some Democrats are more interested in protecting Obama than they are in protecting America, and that’s the real sad fact.”

  • Steve Deace talked to Jesus and "Jesus made it quite clear that President Obama is not a Christian."
  • Donald Trump is so serious about pretending to run for president that he claims to have begun hiring campaign staff.
  • Glenn Beck predictably used the guilty verdict in the Chris Kyle murder case as an opportunity to fume at President Obama.
  • E.W. Jackson has reportedly been told that he cannot use the auditorium in the Capitol Visitors Center for his racial reconciliation conference, so presumably this will blow up into a full-blown Religious Right crusade in the coming days.
  • Finally, Jennifer LeClaire is upset that Larry King apparently doesn't believe in God: "King is 81 years old. He wants his body frozen—not burned—when he dies. It's sadly ironic given the fate of those who reject Christ. Let's pray that God will reach him before it's too late."

Iowa Radio Host: Jeb Bush Gave Conservatives 'A Middle Finger' By Hiring Gay Spokesman

Every week, Iowa-based radio host Steve Deace gets together with Bob Vander Plaats, head of the influential Iowa social conservative group The Family Leader and leader of Mike Huckabee’s 2008 campaign in the state, to discuss potential GOP presidential candidates. This week, they spent a good part of their segment discussing Jeb Bush’s decision to hire openly gay GOP operative Tim Miller as his spokesman. Unsurprisingly, neither was impressed.

Deace read Vander Plaats a series of “red flags” from Miller’s social media accounts, including a tweet critical of the Iowa Family Policy Center , a group affiliated with Vander Plaats, and notices on Facebook that he had attended events such events as “Sugar Tit: A Dirty Polaroid-Style New Year’s Eve” and “By Gays: All City Happy Hour.”

As Deace read the litany of posts, cohost Robert Rees said, “I feel very uncomfortable” and Vander Plaats agreed, accusing Miller of “lampooning the base of the very party he claims to serve.”

“It’s one thing to say, you know what, I really don’t want the base of the party,” Vander Plaats said of Bush. “It’s another thing to actively employ people who are going after the base of the party, intentionally going after the base of the party. This would be a sure way to tell your establishment friends, this is how you lose a general election against Hillary, is you make the base go home.”

Deace agreed that Bush’s hiring of Miller was “a middle finger” to social conservative activists. “That’s not even substantive disagreement, that’s just someone giving you the finger,” he said.

Larry Pratt: Kayla Mueller Was A 'Little Revolutionary' Who Palled Around With Terrorists

In a Friday appearance on “The Steve Deace Show,” Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt skewered Kayla Mueller, the American woman who was kidnapped by ISIS after visiting a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aleppo and later killed in captivity.

Pratt said that Mueller was a “little revolutionary who had gone pals-ies with the Palestinian terrorists,” calling her a representative of a liberal anti-American mindset that prefers “capitulating to evil.”

“She wanted to kill Jews, what a sweetheart,” he said.

Deace agreed, calling Mueller’s death a “great irony” and “a tragic example of what Shakespeare once noted as being hoisted from your own petard.”

Pratt then claimed that Thomas Jefferson bought an edition of the Quran after learning from a Moroccan ambassador that kidnapping and enslaving people was party of the Islamic faith. “Jefferson went and got a copy and then he knew his enemy,” he said.

Contrary to Pratt’s tale, Jefferson actually bought a copy of the Quran long before the American Revolution while he was a law student.

Richard Mack: 'Bloodshed' May Be Needed If 'State Sovereignty' Not Preserved

Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, who now heads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, told Steve Deace yesterday that although he is a “pacifist,” states and counties need to enforce their “sovereignty” in areas like marriage equality and gun control, or else “we will lose liberty in America, and we will not get it back unless there’s bloodshed.”

Mack, who argues that county sheriffs are not accountable to federal authority and so should not enforce laws that they believe violate the Constitution, told Deace that America has been losing liberty for a long time, but “it took a tyrant and communist in our own White House to wake a lot of people up.”

“And I will tell you this, if we do not, if the counties and cities and states do not exercise their proper constitutional authority, known as state sovereignty and the 10th Amendment, if they do not enforce their own state sovereignty and secure their state sovereignty, then America will die,” he said. “If we do not exercise the 10th Amendment and state sovereignty, we will lose liberty in America, and we will not get it back unless there’s bloodshed.”

“I’m proud of Judge Moore and I’m proud of the state supreme court in Texas,” he said, “and Gov. Perry and other governors across this nation and sheriffs and county commissioners and city councils must do likewise or we will lose.”

Later in the interview, Deace compared the Obama administration to Nazi Germany, saying that the National Parks employees who shut down monuments during the federal government shutdown in 2013 were “not too many steps” from “other people throughout history who have said similar things and committed far greater acts of man’s inhumanity to man and said ‘I’m just following orders.’”

“It is so scary how many similarities there are between Nazi Germany and the Obama administration,” Mack agreed.

Mack also agreed with Deace that Obama is a communist, saying, “You’d have be stupid not to know that he’s a Marxist.”

“We fought two world wars to stop communism in this country,” he said. “Look at all the men and women who died and gave their lives to stop the proliferation of communism throughout the world, and now we accept it here in our country because somebody said, ‘Well, vote for me if you believe in real change and we want to fundamentally change America, so come with me as we give everybody some money.’ And everybody wanted the money and Barack Obama keeps throwing it everybody like it’s growing on trees and it’s candy.”

“And I am so ashamed of the people who take this money from him, because you have to know it’s not his money to give, it’s not his to take, and it certainly is not ours to take,” he added.

Matt Barber: States Should Defy Roe And Jail Abortion Providers

Matt Barber joined Steve Deace on his radio program yesterday to discuss the actions of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who’s urging judges in his state to defy a federal judge and refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

Barber told Deace that whether or not the United States Supreme Court has “the authority to redefine the institution of marriage, which cannot be done, it’s contrary to reality to say that it’s anything other than the male and female,” Moore is on “solid legal ground” in claiming that the Alabama Supreme Court takes precedence over the federal district court that issued the marriage ruling.

Deace asked Barber why the conservative movement was less willing to defy the federal courts during Judge Moore’s 2003 standoff over placing a Ten Commandments monument in his courthouse or after Roe v. Wade, “when the court said, ‘We’re going to start just massacring, dismembering little innocent babies.’”

Barber agreed that states should have simply ignored the court’s ruling in Roe: “Why, back when the courts issued their ridiculous, non-scientific ruling in Roe v. Wade, why didn’t states like Texas and other states say, ‘Okay, well thank you for your opinion, but nope, here in the state of Texas, you kill an unborn child, you’ve committed murder, we’re going to throw you in jail for it’?”

Later in the interview, Deace repeated his prediction that a sweeping marriage ruling would ignite an even greater culture war battle than Roe did.

Barber agreed, saying the “goal all along” of the “sin-based, sodomy-based marriage” movement has been to persecute Christians.

“Religious liberty and so-called gay marriage cannot coexist in harmony,” he said. “If the Supreme Court goes Roe v. Wade on this decision and divines a new-fangled right to sin-based, sodomy-based marriage, Christians will be being persecuted across the country. They will be told, ‘You either put your stamp of approval on sin or you will be pushed to the fringes and marginalized and you will not be able to carry a job or function in society.’ That’s been their goal all along anyway.”

Robert Knight: Stop Gay Marriage By Impeaching Judges Who Rule For Equality

Washington Times columnist Robert Knight joined Steve Deace on his radio program yesterday to discuss the showdown in Alabama over a federal court ruling striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Knight lamented that “judges have gotten out of control” because state and federal lawmakers have failed to bring them “to heel” by impeaching judges who rule in favor of marriage equality.

“The reason judges have gotten out of control is because legislators have not protected their turf, they have not used the constitutional means to bring these judges to heel,” he said. “One of them is impeachment. At the federal level and at the state level, there are many ways judges can be removed. In Massachusetts, it would have been easy to remove the Supreme Court judges who found a right to gay marriage in the Massachusetts Constitution in 2004, but that would have taken Gov. Mitt Romney to go ahead and get the process going and he refused.”

He also blamed the “pro-family movement” for failing to address why homosexuality is “bad for people” and neglecting to lift up the stories of people “who have recovered and become straight.”

Deace told Knight that Republicans who think a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would help them by putting aside a contentious issue are wrong, and that the ensuing national debate would
“make Roe v. Wade look like a picnic.”

“This is going to go DEFCON 1, DEFCON subterranean, because now we’re going to be in an issue where the other side of the argument now thinks they are empowered and emboldened to unleash the full coercive power of government to force believers nationwide all the way to the church door to change their belief system,” he said.

“This is going to escalate if the court goes Roe v. Wade on this in the summer,” he warned. “It won’t diminish it at all. It will take this from a largely provincial state-by-state issue into a national debate that I think’s going to make Roe v. Wade look like a picnic.”

Rick Santorum: 'Sexual Activity' Rights Encroaching On Religious Rights

On his radio show yesterday, Steve Deace played clips of interviews he held recently with likely presidential candidates on whether “the sexual revolution trumps the American Revolution,” or if “someone’s erotic liberty trumps your religious liberty.”

The Iowa talk radio host directed these questions at potential presidential candidates Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Scott Walker and Rick Santorum, along with consistent non-candidate Donald Trump.

All six Republican politicians agreed that no, “erotic liberty” does not trump religious liberty. Santorum stressed that freedom of religion takes precedence over “the newfound freedom to do whatever you want to do from a sexual orientation — not a sexual orientation — a sexual activity point of view, that to me is a much lower freedom because is an activity, it is not at the heart of who you are.”

Deace also discussed new claims that President Obama reversed his previous support for same-sex marriage as a presidential candidate in 2008 because he feared upsetting African American voters, asserting that Obama only hid his real stance on marriage equality in order to become “America’s first champion for sodomy in the White House.”

“There is a word we typically use to describe those who mislead their own tribe, mislead their own peer group, commit acts of treachery like this to manipulate them: this is traitorous, absolutely traitorous,” Deace said.

Star Parker: 'Evil' And 'Wicked' Liberals Are Waging War On America

Last week, Iowa-based radio host Steve Deace invited conservative activist Star Parker to discuss her new book, “Blind Conceit,” a collection of her columns in which she argues that liberals are waging “wars against our American culture” in pursuit of “revenge and redistribution, the antithesis of Dr. King’s Dream.”

Parker told Deace that when it comes to fixing America, “the first step would be to admit that there’s good and evil”… and that the evil is progressivism.

“Socialism is inconsistent with the Scripture because the 10th Commandment says don’t covet, and what we have today is covetousness,” she explained. “Somebody has something that somebody else doesn’t have, so now we’re going to hire politicians to take it from them. So now, you’ve violated a couple of commandments, because the 8th Commandment says don’t steal.”

“So, yeah, the first step is we have to recognize that there is evil, and America is at a crossroads between good and evil,” she continued. “We’ve become so secularized that we’ve got this idea of moral relativism and think that there are no natural consequences to the choices that we make.”

She outlined the “three wars on American culture” that she believes liberals are waging: a “war on religion,” a “war on marriage where they told women, you can do whatever you want to with your sexual being,” and a “war on poverty” that “began to pay people for their sin, if you will, the natural consequences of illicit sexual bad behavior.”

“In their own blind conceit, they’re so arrogant, they can’t even see how evil or wicked they are. They actually believe that progressivism and socialism in a free country is going to work,” she said.

Mike Huckabee Says He Can Win Because 'American Sniper' Was A Hit

Whenever a Republican presidential candidate prepares to campaign in Iowa, he or she will inevitably start putting in appearances on “The Steve Deace Show.” Ben Carson recently chatted with Deace about why Congress should remove judges from office if they rule in favor of marriage equality; Bobby Jindal used his appearance on the program to promote the “no-go zone” myth and deride Democrats as weak on security issues; Ted Cruz told Deace that civil disobedience may be necessary to stop gay rights; and Rick Santorum even guest hosted Deace’s show.

Yesterday, Mike Huckabee, another likely presidential candidate, spoke with Deace about his new book, “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”

Deace asked Huckabee if he could win a general election since he is currently seen as a far-right conservative who, just like Dan Quayle after he made speeches attacking fictional TV character Murphy Brown, will be stuck talking about his criticism of musicians like Beyoncé.

Huckabee said he will win because more people live in the “flyover country” than the “bubbles” of Washington, D.C., New York and Los Angeles, citing the commercial strength of films like “The Blind Side” and “American Sniper” as proof that conservatives represent an electoral majority.

Oddly, he used the two films, both distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, to attack Hollywood and allege that the entertainment industry doesn’t understand Americans and is more interested in producing “bombs” like “Noah” (which in fact was a box office success).

The former Arkansas governor said he will win the presidency by securing support from conservatives, whom he suggested were uninspired by Mitt Romney’s milquetoast social conservativism.

“I just don’t agree with the assessment that we’re on the losing side of history,” he said. “I keep hearing that my strong adherence to biblical marriage is ‘on the wrong side of history.’ I don’t really think so. My ‘view of life is outdated.’ I don’t think so. Am I going to carry New York or the District of Columbia or California? Probably not. But guess what, no other Republican is either. The question is: do we have somebody who can rally the people and get that mass of voters who do live in flyover country to show up? Because if Mitt Romney had four percent more of just evangelical voters — don’t even include the middle-class economic voters or pro-life Catholics —four percent more, he would’ve been president.”

Huckabee told Deace that that the country is polarized between “Bubbleville” and “Bubbaville,” or real America, and he intends to rally “Bubba” voters all the way to the White House.

He said conservatives understand that liberals in “Bubbleville” have an “irrational, illogical way of looking at life” and are determined to make sure that businesspeople are “forced either to make decisions that they don’t want to make morally or fined or threatened with jail time because they don’t want to make a gay wedding cake.”

“When people in ‘Bubbleville,’ when they say ‘diversity,’ what they mean is ‘uniformity’; when they say ‘tolerant,’ what they mean is ‘intolerant,’” Huckabee said. This is the ultimate example of how we have really come to the Orwellian, 1984 newspeak of 2015.”

Jindal: Liberals Want Us To Pretend 'It's A Good Thing To Kill Journalists'

During his Wednesday interview on “The Steve Deace Show,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal repeated his criticisms of Muslim faith leaders who denounced the recent attacks in Paris, insisting that their condemnations didn’t go far enough because they didn’t specifically say that the perpetrators are going to Hell. Maybe he missed the statements saying just that, or he is simply moving the goalposts so he can continue to score political points at the expense of a frequently demonized minority.

Nonetheless, Jindal made clear that as president, he plans to “hunt down, exterminate and kill” Islamists, which he, unlike President Obama, will apparently do by ignoring political correctness.

“He can’t seem to find the words ‘terrorism’ or ‘radical Islam’ in his vocabulary; he continues to think of this as a criminal act, that is not what this is,” Jindal said. “Other people want to tiptoe around the truth, they can do that if they want but I’m not going to do it anymore. We cannot be intimidated by the left or all of these liberals who don’t want us to speak about this. The reality is, we can pretend like it’s not happening, we can pretend that it’s a good thing to kill journalists, to kill teenagers for watching soccer, to kill over 150 schoolchildren, to treat women as second class citizens, but it’s not.”

Jindal said extreme Islam “sees weakness in the West and is trying to attack that weakness. According to Jindal, the radicals “use our freedoms to undermine our freedoms,” and liberals are letting them do it with political correctness and multiculturalism: “that’s not immigration, that’s invasion.”

Bobby Jindal Won't Rest Until Non-Existent No-Go Zones Are No More

Even after Fox News retracted several of their reports on European Muslim “no-go zones,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says he knows that such areas are real since “people in Europe” have personally told him that no-go zones run according to Sharia law are popping up throughout the continent.

Jindal, speaking to Iowa talk show host Steve Deace yesterday, said that such anecdotal evidence trumps whatever facts are out there.

He warned that America may be next, unless his upcoming prayer rally ushers in a spiritual revival: “Folks, if we don’t get serious, that’s what is going to be in our future. One of the reasons we’re doing something called The Response this Saturday at LSU where we are calling Christians together in prayer, just to pray to turn back to God for a spiritual revival in our country. When you talk in those terms, the media, the academic left, they go apoplectic. Just like they will call you a racist for calling out radical Islam, they will attack you for talking about a spiritual revival. That is what our country needs.”

Ben Carson: Congress Should Oust Judges Who Rule For Marriage Equality

Ben Carson, the likely Republican presidential candidate who believes that the gay rights movement is part of a communist conspiracy to bring about the New World Order, wants Congress to intervene in court cases involving marriage equality, including the upcoming cases before the Supreme Court.

Speaking last night with Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace, Carson said that Congress should “reprimand or remove” federal judges who issue “unconstitutional” rulings striking down state bans on same-sex marriage.

What the president and what the Supreme Court need to reiterate is that the states have a mechanism whereby they can determine the will of the people, it’s called ballot referendum. It has been done multiple times already, 32 states have indicated that marriage is between a man and a woman, and a few judges have come and overturned that. That, as far as I’m concerned, is unconstitutional, and Congress actually has oversight of all what they call the inferior courts, everything below the Supreme Court, and that’s where those overturns have come. And when judges do not carry out their duties in an appropriate way, our Congress actually has the right to reprimand or remove them.

After Deace alleged that a Supreme Court victory for marriage equality advocates would undermine freedom and lead to the “persecution of the church” and “open season on Christians,” Carson said Congress should intercede if the Supreme Court deems same-sex marriage bans unconstitutional.

“We certainly cannot give up if, in fact, that turns out to be the case because we do still have the Congressional mechanism,” Carson said. “And the key here in our country, values and principles cannot be drummed out of us. They’re going to try and the only way we maintain a country with values and principles is we have to be brave enough to stand up for what we believe.”

Larry Pratt On Eric Garner: 'Socialism Breeds Death'

Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt has an explanation for the death of Eric Garner, who was choked by a New York police officer apprehending him for selling loose cigarettes on the sidewalk: “socialism breeds death.”

Discussing the assassination of two police officers in Brooklyn last month with talk show host Steve Deace yesterday, Pratt noted that the gunman had mentioned Garner’s death in social media posts before the shooting, implying that the officers’ murder was also part of the death wreaked by New York’s “socialism.”

The dirtbag that murdered the two cops sitting in their car said that he was getting even for Eric, what’s his name, Garner, the guy the cop had taken down and subsequently died on the way to the hospital in an ambulance.

Had New York politicians had not been so bodaciously greedy to have passed such astronomically draconian tax laws so that a guy can actually sell a single cigarette in the black market as a way to make money and I guess at least some kind of a living, and it so bothered the merchants that were selling at required lawful higher prices that they dropped the dime on the guy. And the cop wasn’t just trying to enforce stupid laws because he was a jerk, there had been an actual complaint filed about the guy selling loosies, namely single cigarettes loose from the pack.

That’s how bizarre it is in a socialist city like New York City in a socialist state like New York. Socialism breeds death.

Jindal Claims Obama Refuses To Stand 'On The Side Of Those Fighting Against Terrorists'

In an interview with Steve Deace yesterday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal praised Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee’s efforts to force a government shutdown last weekend and criticized the Republicans who were openly exasperated with Cruz and Lee’s gambit, which ultimately backfired.

“This president has done severe damage to our foreign policy, to our military, to our economy, to our freedoms, we need leaders who will stand up to him and understand what’s at stake here,” Jindal said.

He said that Republican leaders are enforcing a “double standard” by criticizing conservatives like Cruz while supposedly letting president Obama get away with “forcing liberal radical judges on our courts” and “using the EPA to go after our economy” while the president — who has steadily increased U.S. national security aid to Israel — “refused stand with Israel against Hamas” and “unequivocally say ‘We’re on the side of those fighting against terrorists.’”

“Nobody was there when they were forcing liberal radical judges on our courts, nobody was there when they were using the EPA to go after our economy, nobody said that when this president refused to stand with Israel against Hamas, when he refused to unequivocally say ‘We’re on the side of those fighting against terrorists,’ nobody was out there wringing their hands, I don’t get this double standard,” he said.

“We need Republicans who understand they’re not trying to please the New York Times editorial page, they’re not trying to please the Washington Post editorial page, and if they’re making them happy they’re probably doing something wrong,” he concluded.

Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace is furious about the decision of a Michigan Planet Fitness to revoke the membership of a woman who repeatedly complained about a transgender woman who hung her coat in the women’s locker room. Deace, who frequently has Republican presidential hopefuls appear on his radio program, laments in a BarbWire column today that “we just got done fighting a fake war on women because one spoiled brat didn’t want to pay for her birth control pills, but now a woman who wants a women’s locker room to be free of creepy naked men gets tossed into the...

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal spoke yesterday to conservative talk show host Steve Deace about the recent “Pastors and Pews” summit in Iowa, one of several gatherings of pastors and GOP candidates organized by Christian Nationalist activist David Lane. Jindal said that while President Obama is destroying the economy with “$18 trillion of debt, Obamacare and EPA regulations,” the greatest threat to America is Obama’s push for “secularization.” Such “secularization,” Jindal warned, will eliminate religious freedom and “without religious...

Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who now heads up the Senate Conservatives Fund, told talk show host Steve Deace in an interview yesterday that America is being “invaded” by immigrants “one person at a time” and that President Obama is guilty of “encouraging the invasion” with his executive actions. Discussing the decision of Republican leaders in Congress to ally with Democrats to pass a Department of Homeland Security funding bill, Deace asked Cuccinelli: “Is there any affront to the Constitution this president could commit that...

Mike Huckabee stopped by Steve Deace’s radio program yesterday to discuss Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress and the ongoing negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program. Claiming that Obama doesn’t see how dangerous Iran is, Deace asked Huckabee: “Is it because he doesn’t love America? Is it because he has a worldview that blinds him to the realities of good vs. evil?” “I believe he does not want America to be the superpower that we have been,” Huckabee responded. “It’s almost as if he’s afraid of...

Steve Deace talked to Jesus and "Jesus made it quite clear that President Obama is not a Christian." Donald Trump is so serious about pretending to run for president that he claims to have begun hiring campaign staff. Glenn Beck predictably used the guilty verdict in the Chris Kyle murder case as an opportunity to fume at President Obama. E.W. Jackson has reportedly been told that he cannot use the auditorium in the Capitol Visitors Center for his racial reconciliation conference, so presumably this will blow up into a full-blown Religious Right crusade in the coming...

Every week, Iowa-based radio host Steve Deace gets together with Bob Vander Plaats, head of the influential Iowa social conservative group The Family Leader and leader of Mike Huckabee’s 2008 campaign in the state, to discuss potential GOP presidential candidates. This week, they spent a good part of their segment discussing Jeb Bush’s decision to hire openly gay GOP operative Tim Miller as his spokesman. Unsurprisingly, neither was impressed. Deace read Vander Plaats a series of “red flags” from Miller’s social media accounts, including a tweet critical of the... MORE >

In a Friday appearance on “The Steve Deace Show,” Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt skewered Kayla Mueller, the American woman who was kidnapped by ISIS after visiting a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aleppo and later killed in captivity. Pratt said that Mueller was a “little revolutionary who had gone pals-ies with the Palestinian terrorists,” calling her a representative of a liberal anti-American mindset that prefers “capitulating to evil.” “She wanted to kill Jews, what a sweetheart,” he said. Deace agreed, calling... MORE >
