RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. It took almost no time at all for conservative pundits and politicians to claim that President Obama either wanted the terrorist attack in Orlando to take place or will use the tragedy to advance his nefarious agenda. 5) False Flag! As expected, InfoWars broadcaster Alex Jones swiftly declared that the Orlando massacre was a government-instigated false flag attack. According to Jones, President Obama and other leaders are trying to encourage Muslims to settle in America in hopes... MORE >

On Monday, Tom DeLay stopped by the conspiracy theory outlet “Trunews,” where, in the same program in which host Rick Wiles called for Muslims to be deported from the U.S. and declare that the Orlando massacre was divine judgment, the former GOP House leader blasted President Obama’s handling of terrorist groups and the attack in Orlando. DeLay said that the president has “put American lives in danger” and “emboldened” America’s enemies. When Wiles asked if Obama is “actually on the other side of the war on terror,” DeLay said that...

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has written to a federal judge asking for leniency for ex-Speaker Dennis Hastert, the Republican politician who pled guilty last year to illegally structuring bank withdrawals as part of what prosecutors now say was a scheme to pay off a former student whom he had allegedly molested during his days as a high school wrestling coach. Prosecutors say that Hastert sexually abused at least four boys. The former GOP leader has acknowledged that he “committed transgressions for which he is profoundly sorry.” In a letter to the judge who will be... MORE >

Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax TV program yesterday to discuss the news of the day, during which he voiced his displeasure that Congress allowed President Obama to deliver his State of the Union address and declared that there are legitimate questions regarding Ted Cruz's eligibility to be president. DeLay kicked things off by declaring that he was "a little upset that the Congress even invited [Obama] to come give the State of the Union" because "he's a lawless president" and so Congress "should have disinvited him." Eventually, the... MORE >

The fall of marriage equality bans in all 50 states following the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision was a disaster for the conservative movement, whose leaders have spent years demonizing same-sex couples and warning that the legal recognition of their marriages will unleash a wave of terror on the nation. While Obergefell was a major setback for the Religious Right, the 2016 presidential campaign proves that the movement’s anti-gay crusade is far from over. Several GOP presidential candidates have vowed to enshrine anti-gay discrimination into law and to turn the... MORE >

Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax Prime yesterday, where he declared that President Obama is a coward who has "surrendered to ISIS" and so Republicans need to dedicate themselves to putting pressure on Obama and the Democrats to launch a full-scale war against ISIS. "We have a president that is feckless, that is incompetent, that has no idea what he's doing," DeLay declared, "and Congress has to say it, Congress has to stand up." "If I was there," he continued, "I would suspend all legislation for the rest of the year .... and focus on going to war... MORE >

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay joined “Wallbuilders Live” today to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on gay marriage, repeating his call for states to “defy” the “illegitimate” ruling. DeLay was especially incensed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the Supreme Court’s ruling the “law of the land,” urging fellow Republican members of Congress to “revolt” against McConnell and start punishing the entire federal court system for the gay marriage decision by cutting courts...

SUBMITTED BY: Brian Tashman, Wednesday 07/01/2015, 1:40pm
The right-wing response to the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision has been, quite literally, apocalyptic. It’s only been five days since the court issued its ruling, but conservative pundits have already predicted that gay marriage will ultimately be responsible for natural disasters, terrorist attacks and the destruction of freedom. 1) Terrorist attacks While there haven’t been any terrorist attacks against the U.S. since the court’s ruling, whenever there are, anti-LGBT activists will know who to blame: gay people who want to get married.
