Yesterday, Donald Trump spoke with right-wing radio host Michael Savage about his plan to take on ISIS, bragging that he came up with the U.S. plan to attack the group's oil infrastructure, which he said only started "about two days ago." (The U.S. has actually launched hundreds of attacks against the so-called Islamic State's oil infrastructure since last August.)
"Does anybody say, 'Thank you Donald?" he asked. "Nobody. I've been the only one."
Savage went on to ask Trump what he believes is President Obama's "real reason for flooding America with Muslims from Syria," which Trump said was "hard to imagine."
"Obviously some people think it's evil intentions, I think it's incompetence, regardless, a lot of people think it's evil intentions," Trump continued, before claiming that it is "very easy" for Muslims to enter the U.S. but "virtually impossible" for Christians.
Later in the program, Trump praised Russia's intervention in Syria, claiming that "Russia's been amazing in what they're doing because they're fighting to win."
"I think it's wonderful that they bomb ISIS and that it's great," Trump said, before hailing Putin for "really bombing the hell out of them."
Of course, over 90 percent of Russian airstrikes in Syria have targeted anti-regime rebels rather than ISIS, and have, at times, even provided air cover for ISIS forces during their battles with rebel groups.
After rallying with Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal at his anti-gay conference in Iowa two weeks ago, far-right pastor Kevin Swanson returned to his "Generations Radio" program to discuss the terrorist attacks in Paris, specifically focusing on the Bataclan theater massacre.
According to Swanson, the mass shooting at the theater was "a message from God" since it targeted fans of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal and reportedly occurred as the band played a song titled "Kiss the Devil."
"When you get a wake-up call like what happened at France's 9/11 last Friday night at the concert,” Swanson said, “I think we all need to pay attention to what's happening: This is a message from God. God is shooting a shot across the bow and we better be paying attention to this."
Swanson, who described the concert as "a worship service to the Devil," said that he would ask survivors of the massacre: "Did you love the Devil's works as your friends were being shot up in the massacre?"
"Did you appreciate the works of the Devil as your friends were being shot up in that concert?" he added.
Speaking to a press gaggle earlier this month at a conference organized by radical pastor Kevin Swanson, Sen. Ted Cruz said that he is qualified to unite a divided nation because he united his fellow Republican presidential candidates against the moderators of a recent CNBC debate.
“You have been a champion of conservative values and issues,” an unidentified reporter asked Cruz in an exchange broadcast by Indiana Christian radio host Joyce Oglesby, who was at the conference. “What are you going to do to bring unity to a divided nation?”
“It’s a great question, and let’s talk about unity for a second,” Cruz responded. “How do you bring unity? You know, we saw a moment of unity last week in the debate when I called out the debate moderators. One of the great results that happened was you saw all the Republicans on stage come together and be united, standing behind that charge of the ridiculous bias, the dripping condescension, the assumption in each of those media questions that anyone who actually believes in the conservative principles that America was built on is somehow a blithering idiot. That unity was encouraging.”
Although Cruz did show great success in uniting his fellow candidates against debate moderators asking them hard questions, his attendance at a conference that ended with a call to execute unrepentant gay people may not have been the best way to show that he can bring Americans together.
End Times radio host Jan Markell was a guest on American Family Radio's "Today's Issues" program yesterday, where she told host Tim Wildmon that God has turned His back on America because liberals "hate God."
Wildmon declared that today's "secular progressives" are different than liberals of the past who were "still patriotic" and loved America, whereas secular progressives like President Obama "have such disdain for the traditions of our country."
Markell agreed, and blamed it on public schools, asserting that "they began to hate America and to hate capitalism in more recent years and, as a result, we've got a mess on our hands now, thanks to the secular progressives."
"The root is they hate God," Markell stated, "and once you hate God, then God turns on you and I'm afraid God has turned on America because the leftists so disdain Him. Why should He keep us in our favor, seeing as a progressive doesn't see Him in a positive light?"
Right-Wing Pundit: Obama Created Middle East Crisis In Order to 'Inundate This Country With Radicals'
Joe Miller, the one-time Republican nominee for Senate from Alaska who now hosts a right-wing radio program, invited pastor Carl Gallups to his program recently to discuss the war in Syria and the resulting refugee crisis, which Gallups said was all part of President Obama’s plan to bring “millions of Muslim refugees” to the U.S. in order to either allow Democrats to “stay in office forever” or to bring about a “Muslim overthrow of the United States.”
Miller asked Gallups if in fact “this was the plan all along, to create conflict in the Middle East, have a refugee crisis and inundate this country with radicals.”
Gallups recalled that Avi Lipkin, a conservative activist and the source of many right-wing conspiracy theories, told him when Obama was first running for office that “the Arabs are predicting that deep into Obama’s term in office that he will, quote, create a crisis in the Middle East, which will then create a surge in Islamic terrorism, which will create a Muslim refugee crisis.”
This, Gallups recalled Lipkin saying, would lead to “an influx of many millions of Muslim refugees into the United States, which “Muslims will use it as a Trojan horse vehicle for getting terrorists into an on American soil.”
Lipikin has also passed this theory to End Times radio host and conspiracy theory enthusiast Rick Wiles, who shared it on his radio program earlier this week.
Lipkin’s intelligence is so reliable that in 2012 he predicted that President Obama would “bring in 50 to 100 million” Muslims to America so that “America will be Muslim by 2016." So far, since the civil war in Syria began, the U.S. has taken in only about 2,000 Syrian refugees.
Later in the conversation, Miller and Gallups discussed what Obama’s motive might be for this grand conspiracy.
Miller asked why the U.S. wouldn’t demand that all Syrian refugees stay in Turkey — which is already housing at least 1.7 million refugees from the conflict — “unless you’ve got some sort of ulterior motive, in other words, maybe the Trojan horse or maybe some political motive.”
“I mean, the Democrats, the left, are always looking for some way to broaden their coalition,” he said, “and they’ve looked toward, you know, illegals before, now maybe they’re looking toward Muslims.”
Gallups replied that this political sheme is “a huge part of it,” but that there could be even more sinister motives.
“You can go pretty deep in this conspiracy theory if you want,” he said, “you could go all the way down to a Muslim overthrow of the United States ushered in by Muslim sympathizers, or you can just back it up a few notches and say what you just said, which we know for a fact, we’ve heard various political operatives admit they are attempting to use the broken border or the created broken border situation to bolster the rolls of the Democrat voters. They want to be able to stay in office forever in a, quote, legal way. It’s a drummed-up illegal legal way, but that is a plan, we know that. So certainly this feeds directly into that if, in fact, it’s not something even more sinister than that, Joe.”
Alveda King, an official with Priests for Life, which is among the groups challenging the HHS contraception coverage mandate at the Supreme Court, declared today that the regulation the groups are challenging is not valid in the first place because it contradicts “the law of God.”
Priests for Life and its allies are challenging the mechanism allowing religiously affiliated nonprofits to opt out of the Affordable Care Act's contraception coverage mandate by informing the government that they will not provide such coverage to their employees. In other words, they are not required to provide health coverage for contraceptives, but are still claiming that their religious liberties are being violated because they have to file paperwork informing the government that they are opting out of the requirement, which allows the government to arrange coverage through a different mechanism.
Even the requirement that groups with religious objections to birth control file a form that might lead to a woman getting health coverage for contraception, King writes in a press release today, is not a valid law because “[i]n order for the laws of a nation to be valid, they must at the very least harmonize with, and not contradict, the law of God,” and the HHS mandate does not meet this requirement.
Understanding that the U. S. Supreme Court speaks and rules from a position of common law — human law, and operating under a measure of authority to govern, in America theirs is the highest rule of law that humans can make. Yet the rule of the SCOTUS is not the final word.
In the end, natural law, God's law will always trump common law. Do not fear or be confused or deceived. Remain prayerful. Keep looking up. God will have the final word in this matter.
As to the decisions before us regarding the HHS Mandate, in contrast to God's law, the civil laws and common laws of nations are not written on anyone's conscience or mind.
They are not written in the physical creation. Nor are they appended to the Bible. The civil laws of nations are only written in their own law books.
Consequently, the validity and force of such laws are based solely on national authority. There is no other supporting evidence or "witness" to testify for the validity of specific civil laws.
Consequently, in order for the civil laws of any nation to be authoritative, they must at least be supported by the testimony of another source and that they are consistent with God's delegation of authority to civil governments.
This is more thoroughly explained in Romans 13:
"Let every soul be in subjection to the higher powers: for there is no power but of God..."
In order for the laws of a nation to be valid, they must at the very least harmonize with, and not contradict, the law of God.
Unfortunately, for women, the HHS Mandate does not conform to this formula which is why I stand with Priests for Life in the complaint against the HHS Mandate.
Mission America's Linda Harvey is no fan of the students protesting the University of Missouri's handling of incidents of racial bias on campus, warning in a column today that "ISIS recruiters could come in behind the disturbances at the University of Missouri and other colleges and reap a great harvest."
"This can only end badly," she writes of the protesters. "When we see the carnage in Paris and look at the mob rule taking over a Midwestern American campus, surely we can see that terrorist attacks loom in our nation’s future."
Today’s irresponsible social media, vile extremism and flat-out ignorance in “higher” education create a dangerous Playdoh student who can be molded by race baiters, sexual anarchists, anti-capitalists and even worse– terrorists.
ISIS recruiters could come in behind the disturbances at the University of Missouri and other colleges and reap a great harvest, because even their student leaders think the real problem is “hate speech” which makes them feel “unsafe.” Their boiling points are low, because their own distress over imaginary “microaggressions” is high.
Welcome to our sorority house, local imam and your friends from Syria. Tell us what to think.
Busy verbally and politically trashing the heritage of parents, grandparents, military heroes and western civilization in general, their hyper-sensitive ears can only tolerate “diversity,” which is nothing of the kind but actually a rigid template of destructive agendas: feminism, “LGBTQ” behaviors, non-Judeo-Christian faiths, and racialism.
This can only end badly. When we see the carnage in Paris and look at the mob rule taking over a Midwestern American campus, surely we can see that terrorist attacks loom in our nation’s future.
When are we going to hold colleges accountable for their lack of actual diversity, their aversion to free speech and even more foundationally, their deliberate suppression of the truth?
Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, has been a leading voice of efforts to restrict refugee resettlement in the U.S. and is the sponsor of a bill to defund the resettlement program, which has gained traction as many have scapegoated Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.
Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon invited Babin on to his SiriusXM program on Tuesday to discuss these efforts to block refugees, where he asked the congressman to respond to people who might call anti-refugee activists “haters.”
“What they’re going to bring up over the holiday season is, ‘Mary and Joseph were refugees. Mary and Joseph when they went into Egypt were refugees,’” Bannon said.
“Well, Steve, I would just say this,” Babin responded. “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do. You can see it in technicolor in Paris.”
