The latest announcement in the Ted Cruz presidential campaign’s ongoing rollout of endorsements from right-wing leaders is a group of more than 50 “Catholic influencers” led by Robert George, the intellectual muscle for the Religious Right, and Ken Cuccinelli, former attorney general of Virginia and failed gubernatorial candidate. The campaign announced the endorsement of Robert George yesterday; some others on the list have also been announced previously. Not surprisingly, the list of Catholics for Cruz is heavy on culture warriors who have been fighting to criminalize... MORE >

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, guest-hosted Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” program on Wednesday, where he spoke to his fellow Tea Party-aligned colleague Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kansas, about the 2016 election. Both Gohmert and Huelskamp have emerged as vocal supporters of Ted Cruz, whom Huelskamp claimed understands “the principles of life, the family, religious liberty and protecting folks who are just trying to run their business.” “They go after Christians, they go after our way of life and they’re taking our money...

During the 2013 government shutdown fight, Rep. David Nunes, R-Calif., referred to the extremist members advocating a shutdown as “lemmings with suicide vests.” But the far-right flank, often called the “Suicide Caucus,” has only grown in power since then and has recently gained momentum in its push to remove John Boehner, who they say hasn't done enough to fight President Obama, from his position as speaker of the House. The "Suicide Caucus" is particularly angry that the House Republican leadership approved an increase in the debt ceiling and hasn... MORE >

Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., is none too pleased that the House GOP leadership allowed members to vote on a clean bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security, avoiding a department shutdown over President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. While speaking yesterday with conservative talk show host Steve Deace, Huelskamp said that grassroots Republicans have been “double-crossed by the establishment.” Huelskamp was especially angry with the conservative American Action Network, a group close to the House GOP leadership, which launched attack ads against him and...

Last week, we noted that fringe Religious Right activist Janet Porter was readying the release of a new anti-gay documentary she produced called "Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity" that was reported to feature a variety of members of Congress and Republican presidential hopefuls. At the time, there were only two clips from the movie available and the only political figure shown in either was Mike Huckabee. Today, Porter released another preview of her film, which contains footage of interviews she conducted with several anti-gay activists as well as... MORE >

Is the government about to ban Christianity and turn it into a criminal offense? According to one documentary, the answer is 'yes' because the gay rights movement is determined to outlaw the practice of Christianity. As Kyle reported, the “documentary” will include appearances from Sen. Rand Paul and former Gov. Mike Huckabee, both likely presidential candidates. Reps. Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Steve King and Tim Huelskamp also make appearances, joining the likes of creationist leader Ken Ham, discredited pseudo-historian David Barton and even “ex-homosexuals....

Update: Porter has also released a trailer featuring Rand Paul and several GOP congressmen. Today, Faith 2 Action's Janet Porter sent out an email to activists excitedly announcing that she is finishing up editing a new anti-gay documentary that she intends to release at the National Religious Broadcaster's Convention in Nashville at the end of this month. Porter, who was a longtime Religious Right activist and radio host until she lost her program due to her increasing radicalism only to re-emerge as an anti-abortion activist and right-wing social media entrepreneur, has brought...

Attorney General Eric Holder, who today announced his plans to resign, has been a leader in addressing systems of racial discrimination and protecting the fundamental rights of every American to be treated equally under the law and participate in our democracy. Perhaps it’s not surprising, then, that the Right loves to hate him. In February of this year, the American Family Association demanded Holder’s impeachment after he had the audacity to treat married same-sex couples like married opposite-sex couples with regard to a host of legal rights and recognitions. Shortly... MORE >
