BarbWire: Obama Worships Satan, Will Be Caliph Of 'Marxist-Islamic North American Caliphate'

BarbWire columnist Sher Zieve writes today that President Obama “has no intention of stopping ISIS” because the extremist group’s members “are his people,” and after all, he worships the Devil.

“Thus far, Obama has not truly fought against any Islamists/Muslims. He won’t. When Obama isn’t worshiping himself, he worships Allah…aka Lucifer/Moloch,” Zieve writes, adding that “Obama’s intention is to turn the USA into the Marxist-Islamic North American Caliphate…and he intends to be the Caliph.”

Two retired American generals–McInerny and Vallely–are calling for Obama to declare Defcon 1–reserved for imminent nuclear strikes on the U.S. mainland. Thus far, Obama has not truly fought against any Islamists/Muslims. He won’t. When Obama isn’t worshiping himself, he worships Allah…aka Lucifer/Moloch. He bowed down and kissed the hand of his benefactor the King of Saud shortly after he was elected POTUS. Muslims know what this means. It means submission. With this act, Obama placed the USA into Dhimmitude–where we have been for Obama’s entire reign.

USBP agents have begun to resign as the U.S. southern border is wide open and–along with all other comers–terrorists have been entering our country for the months and years Obama has been in power. The agents have repeatedly been told not to stop anyone from entering the country. The terrorists and Mexican cartels have set up shop in multiple U.S. states. ISIS/ISIL has been here for quite some time. Obama knows it. They are his people.

As I’ve written in multiple columns over the years, Obama’s intention is to turn the USA into the Marxist-Islamic North American Caliphate…and he intends to be the Caliph. That is why he never seems worried about anything. All is going as planned. The faux “refugees”–see below video–are a distraction, but meant to overrun the country and help to more quickly turn it Third World. It’s working. In the meantime, all manner of gang members and terrorists have entered the country by Obama‘s command. To top off Obama’s continual treasons, he also sides with Islam against Israel.

The world is in the most dire condition it has ever been and Obama is one of those leading the charge for its establishment as an Islamic slave state. In order to do so, the elimination of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is necessary. Obama has already firmly indicated that he is up to the task. Even the dullest amongst us should be able to see just who and what Obama is now. The Lord of the universe is no longer amused.

Kamal Saleem: Obama Wants ISIS To Bomb America So He Can Seize Power

After explaining how President Obama attended a mosque in Washington D.C. while simultaneously vacationing in Hawaii on Christmas, Kamal Saleem told “Trunews” host Rick Wiles last week that Obama is supporting ISIS and other violent groups as part of his anti-American agenda.

In fact, Saleem said ISIS will soon bomb America ... allowing Obama to declare martial law and remain in office.

“When the Muslim comes to America and they start doing bombing,” Saleem explained, “it will establish martial law and it will establish that probably the president doesn’t have to step down for years until the martial law is done with.”

Saleem warned that Obama is using abortion rights and LGBT equality to “devastate the Christian fundamental power and establish the authority of Islam” in America, adding that Obama is “waging jihad” and “engraving Islamization into the history of the United States of America and in the future of the United States.”

“It will have to be a miracle from God that America can walk out of this,” he said.

According to Saleem, the Muslim Brotherhood is taking over the “Seven Mountains,” a phrase commonly used by Dominionists to spell out the seven spheres of influence in society.

“The Muslim Brotherhood sits on the top of those ‘Seven Mountains,’” he said, claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood now controls the government, the media (“including Fox News”!) and the schools, where they are “teaching the kids to pledge allegiance in the name of Allah to the American flag.”

Kamal Saleem: Obama Attended DC Mosque On Christmas While Vacationing In Hawaii

While speaking to Rick Wiles on “Trunews” last week, phony ex-terrorist and Religious Right idol Kamal Saleem alleged that President Obama attended a mosque in Washington, D.C. on Christmas Day…while he was vacationing in Hawaii.

“We see him on Christmas, he goes to the mosque, on Christmas Day he’s in a mosque in Washington D.C. taking his shoes off to celebrate that day on Christmas Day in a Washington D.C. mosque,” he said.

In every year of his presidency — 2009201020112012 and 2013 — Obama and his family were in his home state of Hawaii during Christmas. But perhaps Obama actually spent Christmas surreptitiously flying from Hawaii to Washington to secretly attend a mosque and managed to do so without anyone in the media reporting on it ... after all, it’s only a brisk, ten hour flight.​

Maybe Obama was going to a mosque with his ninja-Islamist babysitter that Saleem has warned about, or maybe Saleem was referring to a phony article from the satirical National Report about Obama attending a mosque on July 4th.

In the same interview, Saleem said Obama “declared the Islamization over America” at the United Nations and is working to “create an envoy to Europe” to “establish radical Islamization in Spain, in France and in Germany.”

Of course, no one knows about any of this because of the media!

“This is happening and the American people are not aware of it because the media and this current Islamization power is just suffocating the truth for the American people to know what is going on,” he said.

Brigitte Gabriel: Empire State Building Lit Up For Eid Al-Fitr To Deter Terrorists

Brigitte Gabriel has a theory about why the Empire State Building was lit up in green in July in celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan: "as a security counter-measure to cause terrorists to not consider it for an attack."

Rick Wiles: Obama Using Gay Rights And ISIS To Destroy America

On Friday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles said that President Obama is “waging jihad” on America through gay rights advocacy and the extremist group ISIS, which Wiles believes is a U.S. government proxy. During an interview with Walid Shoebat, an anti-Muslim commentator who is the favorite of many conservative groups and media outlets, Wiles claimed that “Barack Obama is more than a Muslim, he is a jihadist.”

“He is waging jihad from inside the White House, his foreign policy is 100 percent pro-Islam, he has waged jihad on this country, he has shredded the Constitution, he has defiled the U.S. military by forcing the military to accept homosexuality,” he said.

“Obama is destroying Christian America, that’s his assignment as a jihadist, it is to destroy Christian America.”

After Wiles said that CIA director John Brennan is also “an Islamist,” Shoebat claimed that the U.S. government is feeling the effects of an Islamist “infiltration.” Shoebat added that God is punishing America with Obama’s presidency: “America has abandoned its Judeo-Christian ethics and so God has given them to their own desires and that’s why we have Obama. When Americans wake up and God removes Obama and we have a different president, maybe God will have mercy on us.”

Wiles also alleged that “ISIS and the U.S. government are the same, you cannot separate the two. The U.S. government created ISIS just like it created Al Qaeda, but Al Qaeda wasn’t bloody enough for them so they had to create a worse monster to get the job done.”

After Wiles asked if there is “a super-secret, dark, sinister force above all of this stuff that is guiding this process to set the Middle East on fire,” Shoebat said Obama’s supposedly pro-Islamist worldview is motivated by Satan.

“This is a demonic influence and the more America becomes liberal, the more that kind of influence prevails in America,” he said, warning that liberals will dispose of the First Amendment in order to ban criticism of Islam and “the homosexual agenda.”

Jim Garlow: Obama 'Honors Radical Islam'

Jim Garlow accused President Obama yesterday of having a “devious” agenda to “honor those who have been enemies of freedom, enemies of truth and enemies of justice.”

In an interview with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, the California-based pastor and Religious Right leader went on to claim that the president “honors Islam and radical Islam” and promotes hostility to Israel. He then argued that “there is no such thing as a Palestinian people etymologically, that does not exist.”

Pat Robertson: Obama Was 'Trained In Indonesia With The Muslim Point Of View'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson called “Mohammad and his followers” the Antichrist and claimed that President Obama sympathizes with Islam and was “trained in Indonesia with the Muslim point of view.”

Robertson has previously speculated that Obama is a “crypto-Muslim” who’s “linked up with the [Muslim] Brotherhood,” and called Islam “demonic” and “the Antichrist.”

Bryan Fischer Suggests Treating Muslims Like KKK Members

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer said yesterday that he wants to reach out to liberals and find common ground with them, and came up with a plan to treat Muslims like members of the Ku Klux Klan. He lamented that Muslims have a “zone of protection similar to the zone of protection that homosexual activists have, you can’t criticize them or they will come after you hammer and tongs,” even though Islam is driven by a “dark religious impulse.”

“It’s a cancer, it’s a toxin and yet here it is infiltrating our culture and you can’t criticize it,” Fischer said of Islam.

Then, Fischer made an appeal to liberals: “I would say to my friends on the left, whatever you think we ought to do to the KKK, that’s what we ought to do to Islam.... If you think we shouldn’t give building permits to the KKK to build some kind of convention center where they can have their conferences and their rallies, then fine, let’s not issue building permits for mosques for exactly the same reason.”

Jody Hice, Barry Loudermilk Win GOP Primaries In Georgia

Two candidates with sterling Religious Right credentials won runoff primary elections yesterday to become GOP nominees to the U.S. House in Georgia.

Jody Hice won a primary to succeed Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia’s 10th District, and seems prepared to pick up Broun’s mantle as one of the most far-right members of Congress.

In 2012, Hice wrote a book in which he claimed that gay people have launched a scheme to “sodomize” children and proposed that Muslims be denied First Amendment rights.

Hice, a Baptist pastor, also hosts a syndicated radio show in which he has compared homosexuality to alcoholism and lamented that it “enslaves” people “in a lifestyle that frankly they are not”; blamed school shootings on the end of government-sponsored school prayer; and speculated about the prophetic qualities of “blood moons.”

Hice, who made his name advocating for copies of the Ten Commandments to be displayed in government buildings, once told a newspaper reporter  that a woman should be free to run for public office….as long as she stays “within the authority of her husband.”

And just last week, Hice suggested that the crisis of refugee children at the southern border might need to be dealt with through “Second Amendment” means.

Also winning his GOP primary in Georgia yesterday was state Sen. Barry Loudermilk, who beat former Rep. Bob Barr in a runoff in the 11th District. Loudermilk is an acolyte of fake historian David Barton, who endorsed his campaign. When he won Barton’s endorsement, Loudermilk said, "There is no greater expert on the U.S. Constitution and the underpinnings of American government, than David Barton."

Brigitte Gabriel Suggests Obama Is A Secret Muslim, Terrorist Supporter

Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America appeared on “Trunews” last week to discuss her belief that she is facing persecution from the media because of her anti-Muslim activism, but ended up explaining her belief that President Obama is a secret Muslim.

“Trunews” host Rick Wiles sparked the conversation about Obama’s supposed secret Islamic faith by alleging that the president is “outright arming and training and assisting radical jihadist groups in the Middle East such as ISIS” and engineered a “massive cover-up” around the 2012 Benghazi attack.

Gabriel implied that the president is in fact a Muslim by arguing that he was “raised as a Muslim child and idealized his Muslim father,” even though his father was an atheist and there is no evidence Obama was brought up as a Muslim.

After Gabriel claimed that Obama has consistently sided with the Muslim Brotherhood, Wiles made the interview’s subtext even clearer: “You know the old saying about a duck, if it waddles like a duck and it quacks like a duck…”

“It’s a duck,” Gabriel said.

Wiles added: “He’s not only pro-Islam, he’s pro-jihadist Islam. Let’s be blunt about it, he’s not just sympathetic to the Muslim religion, his foreign policies and his strategies and his covert operations are aiding and helping and funding jihadist terrorists in the Middle East.”

Gabriel later argued that Obama views terrorist groups as “good freedom fighters” because he is the product of a university system that is covertly run by Saudi Arabia. “He had friends who were terrorists,” she said. “He does not look at his friends as terrorists, he looks at his friends as freedom fighters.”

Oddly, after speaking with Wiles about how universities are filled with Marxist radicals, Gabriel said that “the average college student today cannot tell you anything about Marxism or communism or anything like that, they are not educated about these things in America today. What they are educated about and what they care about is ‘Survivor,’ ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ the Art, I mean, we have kids majoring in the Art, the Cultural Art, Women’s Rights and all of those things and they graduate and they cannot even find a job because it’s not the real world.”

“When it comes to the education about the Middle East, those college kids for the last twenty years in the United States are basically fed whatever information they have from Saudi-funded sources that is funding Middle East Studies departments at our elite universities,” she continued.

“Whoever is teaching them is appointed in the Communications class or the Middle East Studies department class by Saudi-funded chair to teach them that the Islamic world is just freedom fighters fighting this big meanie, imperialist, Zionist conspiracy to rule the world.”

ACT! for America Launching Campus Chapters As 'Counterweight' To Muslim Student Associations

Anti-Muslim groups have long been convinced that campus Muslim Student Associations have radical, sinister intentions…although at least one recent effort to find evidence of this came up comically short.

Now, Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! for America is hoping to fight Muslim Student Associations by launching campus chapters of her own group to serve as a “counterweight” to MSAs.

In a fundraising email today, Gabriel asks for money for scholarships to help college students come to her group’s annual conference and prepare them “to launch an ACT for America chapter at their university and start recruiting more students to get involved in protecting America.”

“It’s time the Muslim Student Associations (MSAs) in colleges across the nation have a counterweight,” she adds.

We want to be able to scholarship these young Americans and offer them the chance at experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime event – especially this year, as we gather to remember and honor the 9/11 fallen. This experience will also prepare college students to launch an ACT for America chapter at their university and start recruiting more students to get involved in protecting America. It’s time the Muslim Student Associations (MSAs) in colleges across the nation have a counterweight. You can help get this ball rolling.

Attendance at the 2014 ACT for America National Conference will be the event that will impress upon this younger generation the urgency of protecting our nation’s future.

A few years ago, an ACT! for America tried to get UCLA to ban its Muslim Student Association , although Gabriel tried to distance herself from the campaign once it started drawing attention.

William Gheen Warns China Will 'Pull An Abraham Lincoln,' Recruit Undocumented Immigrants To Attack US From Within In

In an interview with Jim Schneider of VCY America on Tuesday, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC claimed that in the event of a U.S.- China war over the Taiwan Strait, China will recruit undocumented immigrants to fight the U.S. from within and will then give them American land, a move he compared to Abraham Lincoln giving land to former slaves after recruiting blacks to fight in the Civil War.

“Once again, with China, the Pentagon has reports from war colleges saying, ‘We’ve got large groups of people’  — and they won’t say who they are, but they’re talking about the 20-plus million illegal immigrants — they’re like, ‘We’ve got large groups of people that might not be fond of the Constitution that could be called upon by a foreign power in case of conflict,” Gheen said.

“What they’re talking about is, let’s say that the United States and China end up having to go to war tomorrow over the Taiwan Strait. Well, all the sudden, China pulls an Abraham Lincoln on us and says, ‘Hey, illegals, we’ll give you the whole place, just punch America in the gut for us.’ And America won’t be able to sustain our fleet. America can be taken out by a sneak attack from within.”

Gheen shared this theory at the end of a long rant in response to Schneider asking him if ISIS is trying to exploit the refugee crisis on the southern border to sneak terrorist sleeper cells into the United States.

Gheen replied that terrorist cells were already in the country in the form of Muslim-Americans colluding with Mexican drug cartels to send “precious and strategic metals” to China and get “everybody’s kids and grandkids” “hooked on cocaine and methamphetamine" and then snort their inheritances "all right up their nose and out of the country into Mexico and the on to Saudi Arabia."

“All of that destruction, the deconstruction of the United States, the planned demolition of the United States is all taking place, it’s a plan,” he said. “If you’re a terrorist, you really wouldn’t want to do anything to mess that up. If you’re a sleeper cell, you don’t want to go blow up the town hall and get the locals all upset because right now you’re bringing in more and more of your people and taking over whole communities and neighborhoods and building a mosque on every block.”

Earlier in the interview, Gheen claimed that President Obama is “sponsoring and facilitating” an immigrant “invasion” so “what he sees as evil Whitey can’t ever do anything to come back from it.”

The president, he added “may have our full destruction in mind.”

Sandy Rios Cites Fake Obama Quote To Prove He Is A Marxist-Muslim

On her Friday radio show, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association chatted with a caller about whether Islam is the “whore of Babylon” mentioned in Revelation, which naturally gave her the opportunity to rant against President Obama.

“The President is a Marxist” whose “sympathies are most definitely with Islam,” Rios said, before telling listeners that they should be “prepared to die for their faith” in the face of supposed anti-Christian persecution.

“There’s no question about that, in his own book he said whenever there is a dispute about where I’m going to come down, I’m always going to come down on the side of Islam,” Rios said. “And he’s done that, he’s said that our space program was to help in the education of Muslims.”

Actually, Obama did not say that in his book. A bogus chain email claims Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father that “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The real quote doesn’t even mention Islam:

Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

Rios’ claim about NASA similarly has its origins in baseless right-wing paranoia

Benham Brothers Ready To Die In Battle

The Religious Right mythologizing of David and Jason Benham continues. The Benham brothers – whose plans for a reality TV show on HGTV were scrapped by the network after Right Wing Watch reported on the brothers’ anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Islam activism – were featured speakers at last week’s Road to Majority conference, sponsored by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition. And they’re on the schedule for the much bigger Values Voter Summit in September.

A Christian Post story on their appearance at Road to Majority frames their experience in typical martyrs-to-their-faith rhetoric, saying their reality show “was canceled because they spoke about their Christian views.”

Now, we don’t know exactly what motivated HGTV’s decision, but it seems to be a pretty good bet that it had nothing to do with the fact that the Benhams are outspoken about their Christian faith, and more to do with the fact that they had been outspoken advocates of limiting other people’s rights – as when Jason urged Charlotte, North Carolina, officials to deny permits for LGBT pride events, or when David took part it protests against the Islamic community center that critics inaccurately dubbed the “Ground Zero Mosque.”

The Religious Right revels in manufacturing martyrs. And the Benham brothers are happy to play the part, portraying themselves as targets of a demonic gay rights movement that is out to silence its critics. “If people remain silent, then it’s going to continue to get worse. But when folks step up, and speak boldly the truth, and then it can actually get pushed back,” David told the Christian Post. “You have to be willing to die. I mean, Jason and I had to be willing to lose our show. We had to be willing to lose a book deal…”

In their Road to Majority remarks, the Benham brothers portrayed themselves as warriors.

“We just remember June the 6th, 1944. We know what happened at D-Day. We know what happened on Omaha and Utah beach. There’s something about those men that our dad taught us when we were kids. And he said, ‘Boys, don’t you ever run from bullets. You run toward the bullets.’ There are cultural bullets flying, all over today, especially religious liberty. And what’s happening right now is many spiritual leaders, elected leaders, they are running from bullets. But there’s a remnant of people that are ready to stand and say ‘I’m not running from these bullets any more. I’m gonna take this beach…’”

One of the brothers invoked Meriam Ibrahim, a Christian woman who had been jailed in Sudan for refusing to renounce her faith (and who, it was reported today, is now safe in the US embassy), and then invoked Mel Gibson’s bloody battle epic “Braveheart.”

“Just like in the movie Braveheart, when all the Scottish Army was standing there, and they all had their gear on, and they were lined up and they were unified, and they were ready to fight but not a single one of them wanted to fight.  And then as William Wallace and a few men rode in on horses with blue face paint on. They were ready to pick a fight. And what I see before me right now are a bunch of people with some blue face paint on – so let’s go get it!"

Larry Pratt Claims 'Most Of The Mosques In Our Country' Are Promoting Terrorism

Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt is furious about Hillary Clinton’s recent remark that the gun lobby is a “minority of people” who “hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

Pratt told Tea Party News Network host Tim Constantine on Tuesday that Clinton’s remark means she thinks that all gun owners are terrorists and is therefore ignoring Islamic terrorism, which he claimed is being taught in “most of the mosques in our country.”

“That means that they’re not willing to look at Islam and realize that Islam teaches killing other people,” he said. “Pure Islam from the Koran says that anybody who doesn’t agree exactly with Islam is to be killed, or enslaved at best. So, there’s your real terrorist. And it’s in most of the mosques in our country. You want to find the real terrorists, Mrs. Clinton, check out mosques.”

After Attacking Woman At Heritage Panel, Brigitte Gabriel Smears Her In Fundraising Email

Earlier this week, a media firestorm erupted around a Heritage Foundation panel about the 2012 Benghazi attack, which featured a number of anti-Muslim activists including ACT! for America’s Brigitte Gabriel and Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank attended the event, and wrote about an ugly exchange in which a Muslim woman in the audience asked a question about Muslim representation at the event, and was met with a tirade from Gabriel, who told her that the “peaceful majority” of Muslims was “irrelevant,” made a comparison to Nazi Germany, and demanded to know if the woman was an American.

Milbank’s column, in turn, caused outrage from  the conservative media and from Politico, who claimed that he misrepresented the event, although, as Milbank later pointed out, his critics were not actually there to see Gabriel’s diatribe and the enthusiastic response of the Heritage crowd.

Now, Gabriel is responding to criticism of her remarks in trademark fashion, by attempting to smear the woman who asked her the question.

In a fundraising email yesterday, Gabriel claimed that she had found “additional information” about the woman that “begins to bring into more focus the possible real reason for her ‘question’ at Monday’s event.” Gabriel breathlessly reports that the woman, Saba Ahmed, has been active in politics before (not a huge surprise for someone attending a panel event in Washington). She then tries to link Ahmed to an attempted terror plot in Portland (Ahmed was a family friend of the suspect, and has not in any way been implicated in it). And to top it all off, Gabriel reports that Ahmed was once arrested for something completely unrelated.

This line of attack should not come as a huge surprise from someone who has used similarly tenuous connections to claim that former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin was a Muslim Brotherhood agent, an accusation that Gaffney repeated at the panel.

Gabriel concludes her email by repeating her remark from the panel that “it is time we take political correctness and throw it in the garbage” and asking for money from her supporters.

Although the only focus of Monday’s Heritage event was getting to the bottom of the Benghazi attack and holding those responsible accountable for their actions (or lack of action), my panel was asked a rather unusual question by a woman in the audience, Saba ‘Queen’ Ahmed – a woman portraying herself as a young Muslim student concerned about the discrimination of Muslims.


Ms. Ahmed has been described by many in the media as a “young Muslim law student.” However as is so often the case, there is just a little more to the story.

The additional information we found about Ms. Ahmed begins to bring into more focus the possible real reason for her “question” at Monday’s event – and a possible explanation about why she attended the discussion and left immediately after her question and our exchange:

  • She is CEO/President of Saba Ahmed, LLC a Washington, DC, lobbying firm.
  • She is the friend of the family of Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the Somali-American accused of attempting to bomb a Portland Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2010. (In fact, here is a photo of her leaving his court proceedings!)
  • She is a former candidate for U.S. Congress. (Right: Image from her campaign website)
  • She has been active in Democratic politics as well as with the radical “Occupy” movement.
  • She was an assistant of former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski and also for U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR).
  • She was arrested for a “stalking incident” in Florida.

I am glad that I had the opportunity to address Ms. Ahmed’s comments directly and respectfully – even though they had nothing to do with the issue of the event. It was an important educational moment.

I stand by how I closed my remarks on Monday:

It is time we take political correctness and throw it in the garbage where it belongs, and start calling a spade a spade.

I have received letters and e-mails from all over the country in support of my response to Ms. Ahmed. I am humbled by, and appreciative of, this support and encouragement. And I want you to know that I intend to continue standing up to individuals like this who seek only to misrepresent the truth and who use the liberal media to spread falsehoods about the Islamist threat that surrounds us.

UPDATE: On Sean Hannity's program last night, Gabriel again attacked Ahmed, saying “she took the limelight instead of standing up as an American.” Hannity then spent several minutes hounding Ahmed.

Kris Kobach Flirts With Obama 'Secret Muslim' Conspiracy Theory

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — who doubles as an influential anti-immigrant and anti-voting-rights activist — flirted with the far-right conspiracy theory that President Obama is secretly a Muslim on his radio program last month.

Discussing the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s annual report, Kobach claimed that the Obama administration is ignoring the persecution of Christians in many Muslim countries, an issue that he said Americans are overlooking.

“Is it because the whole issue of Islam is something that we just don’t talk about because some people have questioned what exactly the president’s religious faith is?” he asked.

“When it comes to this issue it doesn’t matter what the president’s religious beliefs are,” he added, using the classic strategy of GOP politicians who encourage the “Obama is a Muslim” myth while never quite affirming it.

Larry Tomczak, BarbWire Celebrate Memorial Day By Questioning Obama's Faith

Larry Tomczak, pastor and pundit, celebrated Memorial Day with an open letter questioning whether the country’s Commander-in-Chief, President Barack Obama, is really a Christian.  Of course, implicit in Tomczak’s letter is his belief that only the right kind of Christian, according to his standards, is fit to be president of the U.S. The letter was distributed by BarbWire, Matt Barber’s home for commentary from the far right, which topped the letter with a photo of Obama in front of what appears to be a Koran, with a Communist hammer and sickle over one shoulder and a Muslim crescent over the other.

Tomczak, who has a habit of invoking the specter of Nazi Germany when he talks about the fight against LGBT equality, manages to avoid a Nazi reference in this letter. He does cite Obama’s support for gay rights and marriage equality as evidence that Obama is not a Christian. Of course, Obama has plenty of company. For Tomczak, the millions of Christians who support LGBT equality and reproductive choice aren’t real Christians; neither are Catholics who aren’t “born-again.” Tomczak portrays Catholic schools as suspect and not likely to have given Obama “correct instruction in the Christian faith.”

Tomczak argues that Obama’s “beliefs, policies, social leanings and character” suggest that Obama is not an “authentic, obedient Christian” and says the president’s bad example allows Catholics like Kathleen Sebelius, Nancy Pelosi, and Caroline Kennedy “to continue in their wayward paths.”

Tomczak’s arrogant letter is filled with faux humility. He starts by saying he wants to “humbly” ask Obama about his faith, signs off “respectfully,” and in between assures President Obama that he loves and prays for him. Tomczak expresses hope that [the far from orthodox] Abraham Lincoln will speak to Obama “from the grave” and tell him “to repent and begin exercising the courageous Christian leadership America needs before it’s too late.” And he ends by encouraging Obama to consult with Billy Graham in order to become an “authentic” Christian.

That would be the same Billy Graham who praised Mitt Romney’s values during the 2012 presidential campaign and took out full-page ads encouraging North Carolina voters to back a constitutional ban on marriage equality and any kind of civil union or domestic partnership. Graham’s ministry is now run by his son Franklin Graham, an anti-gay zealot who praises Russian President Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay efforts, says  “true” Christians cannot support marriage equality, and not only questions Obama’s faith but says his administration is “anti-Christ.”

Pamela Geller Rails Against Subway For Having Halal Restaurants

Furious over halal Subway restaurants in the United Kingdom, Pamela Geller appeared on “The Janet Mefferd Show” yesterday to allege that while Muslim customers demand full compliance, Jewish customers would never do such a thing: “A Jewish person doesn’t eat non-kosher meat, that’s all. They don’t say, ‘This restaurant can’t serve meat that’s not kosher.’ This is what [Muslims] do, they impose their halal, or in this case their Sharia, on non-Muslims.”

In fact, Subway does have kosher restaurants that don’t serve non-kosher menu items.

The Jewish Telegraph Agency found several kosher Subway restaurants in the US where “ham and bacon were removed from the menu, the ‘cheese’ is made of soy, and the Seafood Sensation sandwich is filled with imitation crab. Two microwaves and toaster ovens ensure that fish and meat are kept separate, a consideration for more observant Jews. There is a full-time mashgiach, or kosher supervisor, and the restaurant is closed on Shabbat.”

The Wall Street Journal also reports that Subway has restaurants with “Glatt Kosher” signs that don’t “serve pork or offer dairy products and meat.”

“In addition, an Orthodox Jewish employee must turn the oven on and off each day and the restaurants have to pay to be certified by a rabbinical organization that sends a rabbi over at random times to supervise operations. They are also closed at what are peak dining times—the Jewish Sabbath, which begins on sundown Friday and ends at sundown Saturday.”

Later in the interview, Mefferd wondered if there is an effort underway to push the “Islamization of the American public schools,” and Geller warned that Common Core is pushing Islam:

Pat Robertson Likens Islam To Nazism, Again

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson once again compared Islam to Nazism, telling a viewer that he shouldn’t “turn the other cheek” when it comes to the “rise of Islam.”

“What we’re looking at is a world system like the Nazis, and the Nazis thought of themselves as a religion, Communism thought of itself as a religion, but all have a concept of world domination that they’re going to put people in a bind and at the same time take them away from Jesus,” Robertson said, adding that “the greatest weapon against that kind of thing is the power of God and the spoken word.”

Larry Klayman is once again calling for the military to remove President Obama from office, telling Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association in an interview today that military leaders should “rise up” and “go to the president and say, ‘Your time’s up,’ just like they did to Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, ‘Take a hike guy, you’re destroying the country.’” Klayman, who organized a White House rally last year that he hoped would lead to Obama’s ouster, insisted that the move would not be a coup d’état because Obama is...

Last week, the far-right outlet WorldNetDaily ran an article quoting anti-Muslim activists including Pamela Geller to warn that the Obama administration’s commitment to take in refugees from Syria’s brutal civil war is in fact part of a UN-orchestrated plot to pave way for an Islamist takeover of America. In a lengthy article yesterday titled “Secret Weapon to Take Over America Revealed,” WND expounded on the claim, quoting a warning from conservative author David Horowitz that Muslim refugees will take up polygamy, which will allow their population to “expand...

This weekend, Republican elected officials including Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, and Gov. Bobby Jindal will take part in what has become an annual ritual for potential GOP presidential contenders: they will seek to curry the favor of the Religious Right by speaking at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit. In doing so, they put themselves in the company of some of the most radical groups and activists working today to dehumanize LGBT people, roll back reproductive rights, tear down the wall between church and state, and deny free exercise rights to religious minorities....

To get a sense of just how bad the Right’s Obama Derangement Syndrome has become, it’s worth remembering what their standards were when the president was a member of their own political party. While members of the conservative media regularly attack President Obama for trying to distinguish between violent extremist groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and the rest of the world’s Muslim population — accusing him of aiding the enemy or suggesting that he is a secret Muslim — it’s worth remembering that thirteen years ago, and just six days after the September 11...

Yesterday on “Trunews,” Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin said that President Obama has committed impeachable offenses but is getting off scot-free because the president, with help from the Muslim Brotherhood and LGBT advocates, is “brainwashing” Americans. Boykin said that Obama “orchestrated the invasion” of child migrants fleeing violence in Central America in order to “establish a voter bloc that would be in perpetuity would be a bloc for the Democrats.” “It is treasonous behavior,” Boykin said,...

WorldNetDaily today warns that the United Nations is preparing to “dump a flood of Muslim refugees on U.S. cities,” which anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller tells the right-wing outlet is all part of a UN-Islamist plan to take over America. “You can’t make this stuff up,” Geller said of the supposed plot. Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch echoed Geller, telling WND, “Basically you have those who want to take over (countries) through immigration saying to the jihadists ‘you guys need to stop cutting people’s heads off and be patient....
