Alan Keyes: No Self-Respecting Conservative Would Vote For 'Socialist' Trump

Far-right activist and perennial candidate Alan Keyes is fuming about conservatives’ embrace of Donald Trump. Writing in BarbWire, Keyes warns, “Trump stands for socialism, competently imposed.” Discussing Trump’s onetime support for single payer healthcare, he declares, “Trump doesn’t oppose socialism. He opposes what he sees as the incompetent administration of socialism.”

Keyes urges conservatives to pay more attention to Trump’s record than to his campaign rhetoric, calling Trump “a leftist Democrat” who “is not now nor has he ever been a conservative — in principle or in the policies of the candidates he has supported.” He says conservatives have been “mesmerized” by Trump’s rhetoric on immigration.

I’ve often told people that the only thing worse than the incompetent socialism we’ve seen around the world would be socialism, competently imposed. As someone like Solzhenitsyn well understood, the real objection to the socialist ideology isn’t just its failure to deliver “the goods.” It’s the fact that it invites people to understand those goods in strictly materialistic terms. By doing so socialism denies the spirit God shares with humanity, thereby endangering our living souls.

But exactly what significance do spirit and soul have for someone like Donald Trump, who professes to be a Christian, yet frankly admits that he has never seriously sought God’s forgiveness. Instead, he says, if and when he has sinned, he just fixes it himself. This is precisely the delusion that lies at the heart of the socialist ideology– the delusion of God-denying self-sufficiency that obscures the intangible essence of human being, so that people may be regarded as nothing more than complex arrangements of soulless matter, no more intrinsically significant than the dust. The literally atrocious aspects of the socialist regimes of the 20th century were not a function of the incompetence with which they were administered. They were the inevitable result of the degraded view of human personality the socialist ideology entails and inculcates.

Even though Keyes ran for the U.S. Senate three times as the Republican Party nominee (twice in Maryland and once in Illinois), he left the GOP after his second failed bid for the presidential nomination in 2008. It seems clear that he has lost faith and patience with Republican leaders and voters:

I’m tempted to believe that no self-respecting conservative could possibly be that thoughtless, but then I remember that many “conservatives” who still accept the GOP delusion are self-professed, not self-respecting. If they were the latter, they would cast aside the elitist faction’s sham two-party con game, and devote all their energy to building an authentically conservative political vehicle, compatible with the provisions of the U.S. Constitution and the liberty of the American people. They would also reject, out of hand, whichever candidate the elitist faction sham sends forth to beguile us into surrendering it. Donald Trump is such a candidate. So in fact are all the men and woman who have “made their bones” in either of the elitist gangs now masquerading as opposing political parties.

 

Savage: Ferguson Protesters Afraid Of Donald Trump

Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage accused George Soros of orchestrating the recent demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, alleging that Soros is attempting to foment civil unrest in order to bring down the U.S. economy in order to help his financial investments, although Savage admitted that he didn’t know what Soros has invested in.

Eventually, Savage reasoned that the reason Soros, President Obama and “the bring-it-all-down girl brigade” are trying to incite conflict is because they are afraid that Donald Trump will become president and stop their “revolution.”

Are the Soros-financed forces orchestrating the protests in Ferguson “threatened by a man who is so nakedly American and overtly a capitalist and proud of himself, a man who has brought pride back to America, Donald Trump?” Savage asked. “Is that why they hate him so much? Because he is upsetting the agenda of the radicals in the gutters?”

Ted Cruz Fundraiser To Honor Lawmaker Implicated In Child Abuse Scandal

UPDATE: The award ceremony for Harris has been rescheduled so it will not coincide with Cruz's appearance.

The Arkansas Family Council, the state affiliate of the Family Research Council, is set to present an award [PDF] to state Rep. Justin Harris “at the Crawford County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner headlined by United States Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz of Texas.”

Harris, whom the group hails as “a strong advocate for home schoolers and the unborn” even “when opposed by the liberal media,” is the same lawmaker who became mired in a scandal earlier this year when it came to light that he had “rehomed” his two adopted daughters with a former employee of his Christian daycare center who later raped one of the girls. As the Arkansas Times, which broke the story about the Cruz fundraiser, reported in its exposé on the scandal, Eric Cameron Francis, the man to whom Harris entrusted the children, has been implicated in two other child abuse cases:

In the interview with KARK last Friday, Harris said Francis left to spend more time studying for a seminary degree and that the parting was amicable. When news of the rape came out in April 2014 and Harris was questioned about his former employee, he told the Times he'd fired Francis for a poor work record. The lawmaker did not reveal at the time the child Francis raped was Harris' own.

As Bethania Palma Markus writes in Raw Story, Harris and his wife sent their adopted daughters to live with Francis after they “feared the girls and had an exorcist ‘cast out’ the demons.” 

Harris, of course, immediately tried to play the victim, claiming that the whole thing was the fault of the government.

We wonder how Cruz and the Family Research Council, the former home of Josh Duggar, feel about the FRC affiliate’s decision to honor Harris with its “Power of Courage Award.”

Family Council Action Committee will award the first annual Power of Courage Award of 2015 to Representative Charlene Fite of Van Buren and Representative Justin Harris of West Fork. Recipients of this award are recognized for exhibiting their Christian faith and values in legislation they presented at the Arkansas State Capitol during the 90th General Assembly. Furthermore, they demonstrated courage by standing strong in faith when situations were tough at the State Capitol and they did so with grace. They are consistently models of their Christian values in their homes, their communities, and their churches. Both state representatives are to receive their award at the Crawford County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner headlined by United States Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz of Texas.

...

Representative Harris is the owner and founder of Growing God’s Kingdom Preschool in West Fork and is serving his 3rd term as state representative. He has always been a strong advocate for home schoolers and the unborn. Even when opposed by the liberal media, Representative Harris has always held firm and stood tall in his faith. No one can deny Representative Harris’ faith has always led him while serving at the Arkansas State Capitol. In 2015, Harris sponsored the Parental Involvement Enhancement Act, requiring parents to be involved in their children’s decision to terminate life by requesting an abortion. This is now law today. Representative Harris will not be seeking re-election.

The award will be presented to Representatives Fite and Harris by Jerry Cox, President of Family Council Action Committee based in Little Rock. “The hardships that legislators go through at the State Capitol are sometimes unknown to the public, and during these times it sometimes takes tremendous courage to stand up for what is right” said Cox. “The Bible often speaks of courage and these legislators have consistently shown courage and taken it to heart.” Cox added. “The courage of these legislators is best described by Scripture in Deuteronomy 31:6, ‘Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.’” “We are proud to present Representatives Fite and Harris with the Power of Courage Award.”

Larry Pratt: Fund Planned Parenthood With Sales Of 'The Dr. Mengele Cookbook For Jewish Body Parts'

Larry Pratt, founder of Gun Owners of America, joined Dr. Dave Janda on his far-right radio program “Operation Freedom” last week in a conversation that compared the care provided by Planned Parenthood to medical experiments in Nazi Germany.

Janda claimed that “from a medical standpoint, selling fetuses, selling human parts, I mean we might as well take that back to Nazi Germany for God’s sakes.”

Planned Parenthood’s engagement in legal tissue donation for medical research prompted Pratt to suggest that “maybe Planned Parenthood could replace their federal funding – which they may be losing now – with the sale of the Doctor Mengele cookbook for Jewish body parts.”

Rick Wiles: America Had A Gay Affair And Now God Wants A Divorce

After explaining how gay marriage “sealed” America’s destruction, possibly at the hands of a nuclear Iran, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles told televangelist Jim Bakker today about the time he refused to salute the American flag during a church service because of the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage.

Wiles said that God spoke to him and said that while America has had affairs in the past, the marriage equality decision was the breaking point.

“He said, ‘America has dealt treacherously with me as a treacherous wife,’” Wiles claimed. “And He said, ‘She wants what’s beautiful and good and then she began to commit adultery with other men and I forgave her, and she did it again and I forgave her, and she did it again and I forgave her, and she did it again and I forgave her. But now she’s committing homosexual sex with another woman and I cannot look at her anymore.’”

Wiles continued: “He said, ‘I can’t even look at her, she’s not my wife anymore. The divorce is final.’ He told me that on the day the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, God went to court too and he got a divorce.”

Jim Bakker: America Is Descending Into Cannibalism

Televangelist Jim Bakker, who has already come up with some rather clever ways to promote his ministry’s prepper food, today offered viewers a new reason to purchase his food supplies: cannibalism.

While speaking with fellow End Times preacher Rick Wiles about the potential return of an Ice Age, Bakker urged viewers to stock up on food before it becomes scarce and America descends into violence.

“New York, Chicago, all of your big cities, will be Hell,” Bakker said. “The gangs will take what they want. They will kill to take what they want. Then then they will start eating bodies of the people they kill.”

Beck & Boykin: This Is America's 'Last Call' As We've Become Worse Than Sodom And Gomorrah

Glenn Beck interviewed the Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin on his television program last night and both men agreed that God has "laid down a red line" for America and that we must now "choose life or death."

Citing the nuclear deal with Iran, ISIS persecution of Christians in the Middle East, and the Planned Parenthood videos, Beck said that he has "a bad feeling that this is kind of a last call with God" before the complete destruction of this nation.

Boykin, of course agreed, declaring that "great societies ... have only lasted for about two hundred years and they all follow into the same pattern."

"They fall into exactly the same pattern that America is falling into where we begin to lose our identity, and in doing so we lose our morality, and in doing so we lose our families and our culture and that's where America is," Boykin said. "What is the difference between America and Sodom and Gomorrah, which ultimately was destroyed? And there is a difference. One difference, on the negative side, is that we can kill more babies in a much quicker time period because we have [better] technology than Sodom and Gomorrah."

"We are at a crossroads and America must choose which way they're going to go," he continued. "I believe God is actually giving us an opportunity to recognize our need for Him and to repent and to turn back to a reliance on inalienable rights versus the rights that come from government and man."

Larry Pratt: States Should Arrest Federal Agents Enforcing Gun Laws

Gun Owners of America’s executive director, Larry Pratt, commended states that have passed laws “nullifying” federal gun regulations, saying that states should arrest federal agents enforcing gun laws that they think violate the Second Amendment, just as they should have ignored the Fugitive Slave Act to arrest slave-catchers coming into northern states.

In an interview on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program on August 4, Pratt fielded a question from a caller who asked what Americans can do “when the man in the Oval Office lacks competence” and is possibly “borderline insane” like “Nero, Hitler and Mao Zedong.”

The answer, Pratt said, was nullification.

“We’re blessed in this country that we do still have something left of our federal system,” he responded. “And there are a number of states that have passed laws in one area or another that have told the feds, ‘Don’t stick your nose in here.’ And, in fact, in some of the cases, and I’m thinking of Kansas particularly, if they find that you’re involved in unconstitutional activity regarding the Second Amendment in Kansas, they’ll arrest you. And that’s the way it should be.

“That’s what states did in the run-up to the War Between the States. Many of the northern states, I remember specifically Wisconsin enacted legislation that led to the arrest of a slave-catcher who had pursued a slave into Wisconsin, and they nailed him and they put him in jail.”

For Pat Robertson, Levitical Laws Apply To Gays But No One Else

Televangelist Pat Robertson regularly cites the Book of Leviticus as proof that homosexuality is a grave and evil offense, doing so as recent as Monday. But it seems that homosexuality may be the only area in which Robertson still thinks Old Testament admonitions still apply.

The host of “The 700 Club,” who has gotten used to explaining away the Old Testament’s dictates on violence, slavery and polygamy, fielded a question today about whether Christians must obey strict Levitical laws about menstruation.

Robertson laughed off the prospect and seemed unaware of the menstruation passage’s existence, saying that Christians don’t need to obey Leviticus and only need to love God and their neighbors as Jesus said.

Unless you are gay, of course, in which he case you need to abide strictly by Leviticus.

(Hemant Mehta adds: "Leviticus 18:19 — just three verses before the infamous anti-gay passage — mentions menstruating women: 'Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.' I guess he skipped that line during his reading.")
