Jerry Boykin, the retired Army general who now serves as a top official at the Family Research Council, joined FRC President Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” radio program last night to discuss a letter that he and other retired officers have sent to Congress urging them to reject the nuclear deal with Iran.
Boykin, of course, could not help discussing the issue in apocalyptic terms, telling Perkins that current military leaders are going along with the deal in order to save their jobs even though it will lead to the “destruction of this nation.”
“Is this another case where current military leaders are just kind of going along with the president’s dangerous policies because they don’t want to damage their career?” Perkins asked.
“I think it’s a clear case of that, Tony,” Boykin responded. “First of all, when 75 percent of America is against this, is it a stretch to say that the majority of the military leadership is as well? And they are closer to the issue than anybody else.”
“So what we see now is we see a bunch of senior leaders in our military that have put their careers first,” he said, “that have taken care of themselves before they do what’s really important to them, which is the Constitution of the United States and the future of this nation.”
“I’ll get a lot of criticism for this,” he added, “but that’s okay, you still love me and Jesus loves me so that’s all I really care about, but it’s incredible to me that we have leaders in our military that will go along with something that absolutely portends the destruction of this nation and an abysmal future for their grandchildren.”

- Finally, Erik Rush says that if communists had simply been murdered en masse back in the 1920s, everything would be fine today:
Now, I’m not even going to pretend to be objective here; remember, I’m the guy who said that the federal government, the states, organized militias – someone – should have taken it upon themselves to cut down communist marchers with tommy guns en masse back in the 1920s, that communism should have been banned outright, and that comprehensive counterintelligence programs should have been implemented to quash the advancement of any person or organization even remotely evidencing communist or socialist leanings. Had these things occurred, America would not at this very moment be teetering on the brink of totalitarian collectivism with a cabal of subversive radicals at the helm. "
Alveda King, a Fox News contributor and the director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life, managed to combine a dizzying number of anti-abortion conspiracy theories in an interview with Iowa religious right activist Tamara Scott last month, claiming that Planned Parenthood uses birth control to give African-American women breast cancer so that they will then donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which in turn provides breast-cancer screening grants to Planned Parenthood.
King, who has exploited her status as the niece of Planned Parenthood supporter Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in her effort to fight abortion rights, explained to Scott that Planned Parenthood “targets” black women in an elaborate money-making scheme.
“They entice these ladies into their facility knowing that once they get there, it’s a very lucrative experience,” she said. “Because they’re going to give her medicines and birth control shots and pills and things that will expose her to breast cancer. Then she’ll go to Susan Komen, because Susan Koman exchanges money with Planned Parenthood, the money goes back and forth between them. And if she gets pregnant, they’re going to give her an abortion and then they’re going to traffic the body parts of the baby. So they make a lot of money off of black women that are underserved, off of all women.”
“Now make no mistake about it,” she concluded, “Planned Parenthood’s agenda is about money — and eugenics.”
Radio host Michael Savage is not pleased with how the cities of New York and San Francisco are handling the issue of homelessness, suggesting yesterday that the city simply throw all homeless people in prison or a mental institution so they stop peeing in his face.
“San Francisco has now become virtually uninhabitable because of the bums crapping in the street, because of the robbery and the crime that is being covered up, and I don’t blame the police, I blame liberalism,” Savage said. “Liberalism is a mental disorder and wherever super-liberals take over, the cities go to the toilet bowl. Look at New York, I was just there last week, you take your life in your hands walking around with the folks with the box cutters underneath with the shaking cup…. The word ‘homeless’ itself is a fabrication of the radical left.”
After declaring that the Bible and the U.S. Constitution do not require government to support housing homeless individuals other than in “a jail cell or a mental hospital,” Savage said, “The bums are now so brazen because the cops have been neutralized by the liberals that they are literally, openly defecating and peeing in the streets in front of people.”
“They urinate in your face now,” he added.
Glenn Beck spent an entire hour of his radio program today interviewing Jonathan Cahn about his "Mystery of the Shemitah" theory, which postulates that some massive calamity — possibly an economic meltdown, possibly a terrorist attack, possibly a natural disaster — is going to strike the United States on September 13.
Unsurprisingly, Cahn was in complete agreement with Beck's own prophetic vision that America has reached a "tipping point" and that God is giving us one last warning before judgment and destruction befall us. After once again carefully hedging his bets by asserting that it's entirely possible that nothing at all will happen in September, Cahn warned that we are in a very "dangerous period" thanks especially to the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.
"I'm not going to be politically correct," he said. "It wasn't long ago that we crossed another line and Supreme Court struck down the biblical definition of marriage. That is major."
Saying that the decision was "an act of desecration," Cahn warned that "marriage is a sacred vessel of God. We cannot change that. We have done something major. We have crossed the line not long ago and now we are heading to the climax of this period. So, yeah, I totally agree. We are at a dangerous period where we are war with the very things that founded this nation."
As we have noted before, Rafael Cruz, father of senator and Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, is essentially a poor man's David Barton since a significant amount of his stump speech consists of information that he has lifted directly from Barton's own presentations.
While speaking last week to a gathering in Georgia, Cruz incorporated Barton's latest false claim that the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling will now force churches to hire gays into his own speech as well.
During his speech, which was clearly a campaign event for his son as the father is a frequent campaign surrogate and he finished his remarks by explaining why Ted is the best candidate in the GOP primary before handing out endorsement forms to those in attendance, the elder Cruz declared that "the Devil overplayed his hand" with the gay marriage decision.
"The Devil always overplays his hand," he said, "and the Devil overplayed his hand with that decision on June 26. You've got to realize that that decision was not about homosexual marriage, that decision was a decision against religious liberty. What was the basis for their decision? It was the 14th Amendment. That means they're calling homosexuality a civil right. Understand me well, if they're calling homosexuality a civil right, that means that the next obvious step is a homosexual may come to your church and demand to be hired, whether as pastor or a janitor is immaterial, and if you say, 'I'm sorry I cannot hire you because it violates my religious faith,' you're going to be slapped with a civil rights discrimination lawsuit. Or they may come to your Christian ministry or to your Christian school or to your private business. Civil rights discrimination lawsuits are going to be a dime a dozen."
During a recent “Receiving A Prophet’s Reward” special, conservative televangelist Rod Parsley shared the story of a woman who was informed by her doctors that her baby would be born with “more tumors in its brain than the doctors could even count.”
However, by “sowing a seed” — giving an envelope of money to Parsley during a church service — Parsley reports that “she gave birth to a baby perfectly normal, not a single tumor anywhere to be found.”
In an interview with Religious Right broadcaster Jerry Newcombe earlier this month, Operation Rescue president Troy Newman declared that the series of videos smearing Planned Parenthood that he helped produce were God’s answer to the prayers of anti-abortion activists, sent in order to make “the abortion industry collapse in front of us under their own weight of sin.”
“We’re clearly winning on this issue because I think it’s the most preeminent issue that God wants us to be involved in,” Newman said. “The taking of innocent life is, I think, first and foremost on God’s heart.”
When Newcombe asked him about “real examples of spiritual warfare” going on in front of an abortion clinic in Rockford Illinois, Newman agreed that there was “satanic activity going on at that abortion clinic” but that God was taking notice.
“You know, God says that He cannot be mocked,” he said. “And whenever I see people in these abortion clinics boldly declaring they’re never going to close [and] blaspheming God’s name, I think it’s just a matter of time before you close.”
“God says that He will answer the prayers when they are prayed according to His will,” Newman continued, “and He does want abortion clinics to close, He wants babies to be saved, He wants moms to be spared the lifelong trauma and horror of the fact they killed their baby.
“And so when we pray, according to God’s will, that this abortion clinic will close or this abortion clinic will close, it will happen. Maybe not just instantaneously or overnight, but it will happen. And these videos are a product of these prayers. We’re seeing the abortion industry collapse in front of us under their own weight of sin because they’re killing children and there’s a strong, faithful community like you, Dr. Newcombe, that are opposing this evil.”
Rep. Trent Franks appeared on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch” to discuss the GOP’s campaign to defund Planned Parenthood, telling host Tony Perkins that the debate represents a fight for the very survival of America.
Claiming that Americans have become “desensitized” to the “horror from Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry” to “a degree that I think threatens the survival or the necessity of the survival of America,” the Arizona Republican said Congress must defund Planned Parenthood in order to “honor the founding fathers’ dream.”
Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, said he agreed with the congressman, saying that the Planned Parenthood fight has come at a pivotal moment in history as the discredited smear videos have exposed “the evil and immorality of the abortion industry.”
