Klingenschmitt On Pot Legalization: 'Do You Really Want To Be Devoured By The Devil?'

Now that the Colorado legislative session has ended, so too has state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt's self-imposed suspension of his daily "Pray In Jesus Name" program, which he announced only a few months ago after his claim that a brutal attack on a pregnant woman in his state was due to the "curse of God upon America" for legal abortion sparked controversy, leaving even many of his fellow Republicans outraged.

Now that the controversy has blown over and the legislative session has ended, Klingenschmitt has returned to regularly praying about the news and discerning the spirits on his television program, as he did today when he warned that marijuana legalization leads to people being "devoured by the Devil."

Recounting a story about a Colorado business owner who supposedly moved his company out of the state after voters legalized pot, Klingenschmitt declared that people who smoke pot are inviting a "demonic spirit of drunkenness" to take control of them.

"When you begin hallucinating, I'm told, and you begin seeing these images," he said, "you're having apparitions and you are seeing and interacting with and welcoming to rule your heart a demonic spirit of drunkenness. That's not recreational. It's evil."

Citing 1 Peter 5:8, which says, "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour," Klingenschmitt somberly asked, "Do you really want to be devoured by the Devil?"

Rand Paul: US Shouldn't Accept Iraqi Refugees Because 'We Won The War'

The 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq sparked a massive refugee crisis as millions fled their homes, and the U.S. has been widely criticized for failing to resettle refugees, including those who fled after being violently threatened and targeted for working with the U.S. government.

Kentucky senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul, however, thinks that the U.S. should not resettle such refugees since they would be better off in Iraq and, after all, the U.S. “won the war.” 

While speaking with Iowa-based radio host Jan Mickelson yesterday, Paul criticized efforts by the U.S. and the United Nations to settle Iraqi refugees in the country. Mickelson was even more sweeping, attacking efforts to settle Muslim refugees in general.

“We won the war in Iraq, why would we be giving political asylum to people to come from a country where we won the war?” Paul asked. “It’s one thing if you’re trying to escape Castro or trying to escape communism in Russia or Vietnam or somewhere else or China, I can understand asylum, but when you win the war, why would you give people asylum? And if the 60,000 coming here are friends of the West, wouldn’t you want that 60,000 to be in Iraq helping to form a better country over there?”

He continued: “If you let the better people, the people who like the United States leave and come here, then aren’t you diminishing the numbers of folks that would make that country a better place to live? So I think the whole idea of resettling 60,000 people from Iraq over here was a mistake. But I also think that the refugee program as well as the student visa program are some of the highest risks for us to be attacked.”

Following a rant by Mickelson about the Somali-American community in Minnesota, which he deemed a national security risk, Paul agreed that the U.S. needs to reexamine its refugee program.

Mickelson recently promised to ask every 2016 candidate about Muslim refugees in the U.S.

Poll: One-Third Of Republicans Think Obama Wants To Invade Texas

A new survey from Public Policy Polling finds [PDF] that one-third of Republicans believe the Jade Helm 15 conspiracy theory that “the government is trying to take over Texas,” and another 28 percent of GOP voters haven’t made up their minds yet about the matter.

The right-wing frenzy over an upcoming military exercise called Jade Helm 15 has swept up the Republican governor of Texas and several other GOP leaders who wonder if the drill is part of a plan by President Obama to seize Texas, impose martial law, confiscate firearms and throw conservatives into closed Walmart stores that have been converted into FEMA camps.

Among Republicans, PPP found that supporters of former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz were most likely to believe the conspiracy theory.

PPP also found that half of all Tea Party supporters fear an imminent Texas invasion.

Gordon Robertson: Passport Microchip Leading To Mark Of The Beast

Gordon Robertson filled in for his father, Pat, on today’s edition of “The 700 Club,” where he fielded a question from once concerned viewer who wondered if it was “safe to have” a passport since “it has a microchip inside of it.”

The viewer noted that she knows “it’s not the ‘Mark of the Beast’ — just more Big Brother leading to the Mark.”

Robertson said that while he isn’t familiar with the microchip in U.S. passports, he agreed that it is “leading to another thing that is on your forehead and on your hand.”

Right-Wing Group: LGBT-Inclusive Schools Are 'Abusive Of Children'

When he’s not bravely stopping terrorist attacks, warning of a nonexistent ISIS base in Mexico or coming up with new Benghazi conspiracy theories, Tom Fitton of the conservative group Judicial Watch is fighting LGBT nondiscrimination measures in public schools.

Fitton spoke to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch” about the Fairfax County, Virginia, school board’s recent decision to add protections for gender identity to its nondiscrimination policy, a move which triggered a right-wing backlash, one joined by Fitton.

“I don’t know about you and I’m sure parents out there listening here agree, they don’t want their children in classrooms where kids are being messed with by having teachers call a child by the wrong gender,” Fitton said. “It’s abusive of the children. Assuming they have a true psychological issue, body dysphoria or dysmorphia, whatever you’d like to call it, as a result the whole school gets changed and everything gets turned up on its head, it’s an abuse of the child and an abuse of the other children who are being confused and traumatized by having this confusion enter their classrooms.”

Perkins added that the policy “borderlines on insanity if it has not already crossed over the border.”

“Where are the rights of those children and those parents who want their children not to be threatened and traumatized by these children who are being misused and abused by these adults who have another agenda?” Fitton asked.

Later in the program, Perkins said that public schools have become “hostile to biblical morality and I would say common sense” and are now “putting our children, I think in some cases, physical risk and certainly in spiritual risk.”

Stewart Rhodes Defends 'Hang McCain' Comment, Says Senator Is Like Adolf Hitler

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes told a Phoenix television station yesterday that he called for the hanging of Arizona Sen. John McCain last week because McCain “is every bit as nuts as Adolf Hitler was."

Rhodes made the comment while sitting next to Andy Biggs, the president of the Arizona Senate, who has said that he didn’t speak up because criticizing Rhodes would have violated his “free-speech rights.”

KPNX reporter Brahm Resnik noted that Biggs’s presence raised eyebrows around the Capitol:

"That's pretty shocking," said Chris Herstam, a former state legislator and longtime Capitol insider. "To have the Senate president sitting there and not disagreeing causes pause."

"People you associate with and the events you attend determine your political persona," Herstam said.

Biggs isn't just any politician, Herstam said. "Andy Biggs is the most powerful state legislator that we have."

Cliff Kincaid: Pope Francis Will Usher In 'Anti-Christian Tyranny'

Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid, no fan of Pope Francis, took to the far-right outlet BarbWire today to attack the pope for calling on world leaders to tackle climate change, meeting with Raul Castro and making “common cause with the forces of international Marxism.”

“Conservative Catholics and many others are terrified of what is to come,” Kincaid wrote. “Some fear that the Roman Catholic Church has joined the campaign for a global socialist state that could turn into an anti-Christian tyranny.”

He also spoke to climate change denier Timothy Ball, who alleged that Pope Benedict XVI was forced out of his position because he was “starting to deal with the problems of pedophilia and corruption in the money in the church,” providing an opening for Francis to start “bringing in these socialist ideas” that “you’ve heard from Obama.”

Of course, BarbWire contributors typically suggest that any criticism of Christians constitutes an attack on religious freedom, but that only seems to apply to their kind of Christians.

Since we published our article, “Catholic Church Captured by ‘Progressive Forces,’” it is starting to dawn on many in and out of the media that Pope Francis has come down on the side of the “progressive,” and even Marxist, forces in the world today.



The evidence is getting too big for the major media to ignore: the pope has made common cause with the forces of international Marxism, which are associated with atheism, the suppression of traditional Christianity and the persecution and murder of Christians.

Conservative Catholics and many others are terrified of what is to come. Some fear that the Roman Catholic Church has joined the campaign for a global socialist state that could turn into an anti-Christian tyranny.

Dr. Timothy Ball, author of The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science, told me during a recent interview: “I think the Catholic Church is regretting making him the pope. They did it because the previous pope was starting to deal with the problems of pedophilia and corruption in the money in the church. So the powerful Cardinals pushed him [Benedict] aside.

“It wasn’t a health matter at all. He just realized he couldn’t beat them…He [Francis] is bringing in these socialist ideas. He’s already expressed some of them—about inequities of wealth, redistributing the wealth, which are themes you’ve heard from Obama.”

Conservative Pundit: 'Major Outbreak Of Violence' Against Obama Administration Imminent

Writing today in BarbWire, conservative talk show host Joe Messina unloaded on President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over a litany of supposed administration scandals and slipups, wondering if they are “smoking from the same crack pipe.”

Messina went on to warn that Obama has “set us back 50 years with race-baiting and his own racial bias,” which he predicted will lead to violence against the government.

“This country is teetering on the brink of a major outbreak of violence, but it will be aimed at the government, not just a ‘black and white’ thing,” Messina said. “The racial violence we have seen in some of these cities will look like a game of Battleship compared to what will happen if this administration keeps trampling on the rights of Americans by putting illegals first before the American people and taking more and more of their less and less hard-earned money to provide services for those here illegally.”

his [sic] Administration also goes on to say there are no scandals, and no issues at the IRS. Benghazi, though a tragedy, was played out by the U.S. perfectly and it all happened because of a movie maker. We are stuck in a Twilight Zone marathon featuring the Obama Chronicles.



There are so many of these examples it pains me to leave them out, but I want to focus on the comment that the world is the safest it’s been than at any other time in history. Where does he get this stuff? Both Obama and Kerry must be smoking from the same crack pipe. None of the military officials or advisors believe this statement – NONE of them!

Race relations haven’t been this bad since the 1960’s. We haven’t seen this much inner city violence since the violent protests of the Vietnam War and the race riots of the 1960’s. For all intents and purposes, we were moving in the right direction with racial issues, maybe not fast enough, but at least moving forward nonetheless.

This president has set us back 50 years with race-baiting and his own racial bias. He started with the infamous “beer summit” saying that the incident where a black college professor was arrested by a white cop for breaking into a house had to be racially motivated. It couldn’t be a mistake. It had to be an overt racist act.

This was just the beginning. For a president who recently stated that he never gets involved until the investigation is over, you can’t prove it by his record.

This country is teetering on the brink of a major outbreak of violence, but it will be aimed at the government, not just a “black and white” thing. The racial violence we have seen in some of these cities will look like a game of Battleship compared to what will happen if this Administration keeps trampling on the rights of Americans by putting illegals first before the American people and taking more and more of their less and less hard-earned money to provide services for those here illegally.

Like Baghdad Bob, this president either sees none of these issues raised before him or he chooses to keep feeding us the propaganda he has been manufacturing since his first days in office.

Arizona Senate President Says First Amendment Stopped Him From Rebuking Call For McCain's Hanging

Earlier this week, we reported on a recent event in Arizona in which Stewart Rhodes, founder of the anti-government group Oath Keepers, called for Sen. John McCain to be “hung by the neck until dead” for unspecified offenses against the Constitution. Sitting directly next to Rhodes as he made the remark was Andy Biggs, the Republican president of Arizona’s state senate, who is now facing questions from the local press about his participation in the event.

Biggs acknowledges that he was present at the event, a regular “Liberty on Tap” discussion hosted by the Arizona Freedom Caucus, but told reporters that he had confused the Oath Keepers with Promise Keepers, a Christian men’s organization. When asked why he didn’t say anything after Rhodes called for McCain’s execution, Biggs said it would have been a violation of the Oath Keepers head’s “free-speech rights” for him to contradict him:

Biggs told The Republic he was the first speaker on the program and spoke for 30 minutes to 35 minutes. A panel was invited to talk about the need for a constitutional convention and Biggs was invited because he has written a book outlining his objections to such a convention.

He said he didn't know who or what the Oath Keepers are, initially confusing them with "Promise Keepers," a ministry for men. He added that he did not know Rhodes, and thought he was being invited by "an Arizona liberty group."

Biggs said he doesn't agree with Rhodes' comments, but said he didn't feel it was his place to speak up and denounce him.

"Good grief! Stop it with your free-speech rights," he said, imagining what he could have said to Rhodes.

He said he wasn't sure when Rhodes made his inflammatory comments but, "Your ears perk up when someone says something like that."

This isn’t the first time an Arizona politician has flirted with far-right, anti-government groups at the same series of events. Last year, then-Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne attended a “Liberty on Tap” event promoting the Constitutional Counties Project, an endeavor supported by the Arizona Liberty Caucus, that seeks to establish county governments that “interpose” against federal authority by defying federal laws that county officials believe to be unconstitutional.

Since then, former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, the head of a “constitutional sheriffs” organization, has volunteered to run for office in the project’s guinea pig county. Mack also spoke at the recent event with Biggs and Rhodes, where he suggested one thing that states and counties could do to resist federal authority is to “nullify” the federal income tax.

Below is the video of Rhodes' remarks. At the beginning, you can see Biggs sitting immediately to his left.

Fischer: Support For Gay Rights Is 'Evidence That Satan Exists'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer was praising an effort by Texas legislators to preemptively defy any Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage when he went off on a tangent to declare that support for gay rights in America is "evidence that Satan exists."

Citing a CDC survey that found that less than two percent of the adult population identifies as gay or lesbian, Fischer said that it is crazy that the tiny minority group has been able to bully the rest of the nation into accepting their "sexual deviancy."

"They are like bullies on the playground that are pushing everybody else around," Fischer said. "They have got their boot on our throats. I mean, it's just ridiculous that such a small percentage of the American population should be able to push the normalization of sexual deviancy on a nation of of 320 million people and to be able to demonize the people that are standing up for sexual normalcy and are standing up for God's standard of sexuality and marriage, to get them demonized as hate-filled, homophobic bigots."

"It's just kind of really an amazing thing if you stop and think about it," he continued. "And if you need evidence that Satan exists, I gotta tell you, that's it":
