Among the many far-right conspiracy theorists that Donald Trump has embraced in his quest for the presidency is conservative talk radio host Michael Savage, who offers a steady stream of conspiracy theories and bigotry on his nationally syndicated program. Yesterday, as he was preparing to announce his vice presidential pick, Trump appeared yet again on Savage’s radio program, where he declared himself to be a loyal listener, praised Savage for the “great job” he is doing, and engaged with Savage in a discussion of what the radio host called “diseased immigrants” coming into the country.
After Trump casually mentioned something that Savage had said about not “liking” the videos of the two black men killed by police earlier this month, Savage asked Trump if he had heard that from listening to his show.
“I heard you say it, I heard you say it on the show,” Trump confirmed. “And, you know what, I heard you say it on the show, I do listen to your show, a lot of people listen to your show, I don’t even know if you know how many people. So many people come up and they say, ‘Michael Savages loves you.’ I say, ‘Well, that’s good news, I think that’s true.’”
This led Savage to ask if Trump would induct him into the Radio Hall of Fame in November. While the candidate said he couldn’t make the promise this far in advance because he might be busy negotiating a trade deal with China, he told Savage that “you deserve it” and promised that “if I could be a part of it in some way, I would be a part of it. You are doing a great job and you’ve been loyal to me from the beginning and I appreciate it.”
Later in the program, Savage declared that President Obama “has not only been flooding America with immigrants who cannot or will not work, he’s bringing in people who have brought back illnesses that were once basically eliminated in America” and offered to “help” Trump with the problem if he’s elected president.
“It’s a disaster to bring in diseased immigrants, don’t you agree?” Savage asked.
“Well that’s what’s happening,” Trump said, “and people don’t like talking about it and certainly it’s not politically correct to talk about it and that’s why they don’t do it, because everything we do today has to do with political correctness. If something’s a little bit off, off just a little bit, they say, ‘Oh, please don’t mention that.’ Even my people tell me ‘don’t mention that’ and I decide to mention things anyway, even though I know it’s going to end up being a firestorm I mention them anyway. But there’s something that’s one of the other elements, and the people are pouring into this country and, in many cases they’re not well people, in many respects.”
There's a reason anti-choice groups are celebrating Donald Trump's decision to tap Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate: Pence has spearheaded congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, even if it meant shutting down the government, signed anti-abortion measures into law in Indiana and rallied opposition to President Obama's effort to roll back prohibitions on stem-cell research.
Pence, who pledged at an anti-choice rally to send Roe v. Wade, which he called "the worse Supreme Court decision since Dred Scott," to "the ash heap of history," also cosponsored anti-choice "personhood" resolutions while serving in Congress.
The Life at Conception Act, which Pence cosponsored, called for Congress to "implement equal protection under the 14th article of amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn person," defining legal personhood as beginning at the "moment of of fertilization."
Pence also cosponsored the Right to Life Act, a similar personhood bill.
Advocates of federal personhood bills believe that if Congress passes legislation defining “personhood” as beginning at conception, they can bypass and nullify Roe v. Wade, criminalizing abortion nationwide with no exceptions. While the personhood movement has traditionally sat on the far-right fringes of the anti-abortion movement, in recent years Republican politicians like Pence have brought the extremist cause into the GOP mainstream. Unlike more established abortion rights opponents that seek to cut off access to abortion and gradually outlaw the procedure, personhood activists want the government to immediately end abortion in all cases.
Trump, of course, has taken several contradictory positions on abortion rights throughout the campaign, including saying that women who have abortions should face legal punishment. While many anti-abortion groups condemned his remarks, his call for punishing women who have abortions was completely compatible with the message of personhood groups like Personhood USA, which praised the prosecution of a Tennessee woman for murder last year after she attempted a do-it-yourself, coat-hanger abortion.
Now, with Pence as his running-mate, Trump has decided to fully bring the personhood movement into his campaign.
Kicking off the Republican National Convention week in Cleveland on Monday will be an “America First Unity Rally” organized by two far-right allies of Donald Trump: conspiracy-theorist radio host Alex Jones and political dirty trickster Roger Stone. They have billed the event as a way to oppose any effort to “steal” the nomination from Trump. Jones has warned of “revolution” if Trump is denied the nomination, though the odds of that happening have essentially vanished since the convention’s rules committee rejected efforts to “unbind” delegates last night.
Sponsors are calling Monday’s event a “massive victory rally celebration of Mr. Trump’s nomination,” declaring, “We need every Trump supporting patriot to converge on Cleveland in YUGE numbers to show our unity and support for Donald J. Trump!”
In addition to Jones and Stone, speakers are scheduled to include Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos, the gay enfant terrible of the Right who is a prominent apologist for the racist alt-right movement, and Tea Party activist and radio host Wayne Dupree.
Among sponsors of the event are Jones’ InfoWars, Citizens for Trump and a number of subgroups including Bikers for Trump, Truckers for Trump and Christians for Trump. Eternal Sentry, a white nationalist website that was originally a sponsor of the event was dropped after Media Matters reported on the racist and anti-Semitic material featured on the site. Citizens for Trump describes its supporters as members of “Tea Party, 912, 2nd Amendment coalitions, anti- common core groups, Christian conservative groups, and many more conservative organizations.”
The head of Bikers for Trump told CNN this week that with Ohio’s open-carry gun laws, Cleveland could turn into “the O.K. Corral.”
"We're anticipating a victory dance, but it sounds like there's a lot of agitators and a lot of troublemakers coming to town," Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump said on Tuesday. "What happens remains to be seen, but you can definitely count on the Bikers for Trump standing with the police department in the event they need it."
Jones is no stranger to violent rhetoric, having said earlier this year that Bernie Sanders supporters are “pathetic scum” who “need to have [their] jaws broken.” Last month he called Hillary Clinton a “demon-antichrist” figure.
Trump has embraced Jones and appeared on his radio show even though Jones is in a class by himself when it comes to promoting false and irresponsible conspiracy theories, the latest of which is that liberal philanthropist George Soros engineered the shootings of police officers in Dallas as part of a plot to start a race war that will lead to a “Marxist overthrow of the United States.” Jones is fond of promoting “false flag” theories about everything from the 9/11 attacks to the killing of elementary school students in Connecticut, making him one of the most notorious and truly bizarre conspiracy theorists out there. But he is far from the only one in Trump’s stable. Trump’s own obsession with conspiracy theories is reflected in the number of unhinged characters whose support he has embraced.
Trump told Jones last year that he has an “amazing” reputation. In return Jones called Trump a modern-day George Washington. He and Trump agreed that the country might not survive unless Trump is elected president.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed in some hot water this week after he gave an interview to a local TV station in his Sioux City district office and viewers noticed that he kept a Confederate flag on his desk.
In an interview with Iowa talk radio host Jeff Angelo on Wednesday, King explained that the flag had been on his desk, along with an American flag and a Gadsden flag, for “a long, long time” and “no one has ever commented about it” until now.
He told Angelo that his critics don’t understand the “real history of the Civil War” and that only a “small part of it was about slavery.” He claimed that nobody minded the Confederate flag until the past year or so when people starting using the flag as a “pretext in order to divide us.”
“This is a free country and there’s freedom of speech,” he said, “and, by the way, I’d encourage people to go back and read the real history of the Civil War and find out what it was about. A small part of it was about slavery, but there was a big part of it that was about states’ rights, it was about people that defended their homeland and fought next to their neighbors and their family. And on both sides of that, roughly 600,000 Americans lost their lives in the Civil War and we put an end to slavery, a stain upon our country. And we’ve lived with respecting the South and their way of life for 150 years and now, after 150 years, there has to be an issue about a Confederate flag?”
King told Angelo that he had ancestors who had fought and died in the Union Army.
“Our family cares a lot about unity but also about the truth and accuracy in history,” he said, “and so that Confederate flag has been here for a long, long time, it just does a reflection of our history, it’s not meant to be anything else. And, by the way, up until about a year ago, it never occurred to me that anyone would think that it has something to do with — that it was an advocacy for anything other than, let’s just say, a piece of our history that we should remember and remember the right lessons from.”
“I’m watching our civilization digress,” he added, “because people are pitting — they are looking for pretext in order to divide us, and this is the pretext that they have chosen upon. And so I’d say to them the same thing the Texans say about their flag with the cannon on it: ‘You see this flag? Come and take it.’”
Glenn Beck spent a portion of his television program last night debating with audience members who are not very happy with his refusal to support Donald Trump, which Beck continues to insist he cannot do because voting for Trump carries eternal consequences.
To vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton is to give his approval to genuine evil and "darkness," Beck said, and so unless God tells him otherwise, he cannot vote for Trump.
"We have to do what we feel the Lord would want us to do," Beck explained. "All I'm looking for now is to be seen in eyes of favor. Lord, I know who you are and I can't imagine standing in front of you and saying, 'But you don't understand, you weren't there.' He was there. And I don't want to say, 'I didn't have enough trust in you to hold the line on my principles' because those principles were right! Even if they were going to throw me in jail and crucify me upside down, I'm not wavering because I believe what I believe in and hopefully the Lord will recognize those who have trust in Him."
David Whitney: Dallas Shooting Was Either False Flag Or Symptom Of Evolution Being Taught In Schools
The Institute on the Constitution’s David Whitney published a doozy of a response on Wednesday to the assassination of five police officers in Dallas, claiming that the sniper attack was likely a government-orchestrated false flag and, even if it wasn’t, it was the result of teaching evolution in schools.
Whitney first laid out the “false flag” theory, that the government orchestrated the shooting in order to “establish the New World Order, another name for the kingdom of Satan”:
… This sniper event couldn’t have happened at a more propitious time as the Congress is pushing through more gun control legislation. Could the timing just be just coincidental? Consider some similar sniper events.
In March 2011 the “spontaneous democratic protest” in Daraa led to carnage as trained snipers killed seven policemen and four protesters, escalating the crisis and launching the five-year long devastation of Syria. That sniper event was carefully planned and well coordinated in an attempt to destabilize that country and its government. In February 2014 paramilitary snipers (later identified as Gladio operatives) opened fire on protestors and police forces in Ukraine, escalating the crisis and putting the final nail in the coffin of Yanukovych’s rule. Now here in July 2016 unidentified snipers opened fire at an otherwise peaceful protest in Dallas. Is there a pattern here?
Could this be another false flag?
The difficult thing here as in other such events is that we cannot always get at the truth. We know the media, particularly the mainstream media, is lying to us regularly. We know our civil government in general is not to be trusted – they have their own agenda which is to establish the New World Order, another name for the kingdom of Satan. They will stop at nothing to achieve it, including murdering policemen. They are of their father the Devil and the works of the Devil they do. As he was a murderer from the beginning so murder is part of their playbook.
Whitney then explains that even if the shooting was not a false flag, it shows that legal abortion and teaching evolution in schools leads people like the Dallas shooter to mass murder:
By they way. If the narrative presented by the media and government were actually true, and I doubt that it is, what should be done? So we have an irate black man with a gun killing police officers. What should be done? Take away everyone’s guns? That begs the question, what brought this man to this point where he considers murdering others a good thing? How was he educated?
In a school house where the Bible was forbidden, prayer illegal, the Ten Commandments could never be seen by him or any student …
Add to that his school taught him evolution – that he was just a compilation of mutations and mistakes, just an overgrow ape. Add to that the notion of relativism, that there are no absolutes, nothing absolutely right or wrong. Compound that with the preaching from the school house that each individual is entitled to make up their own moral value system. Then top it of by showing the student for more that forty years murdering is not only valued as a social good, it has such an exalted status that the government will pay you to murder, provided you are female and it is your own child in the womb you are choosing to murder.
Given all these facts, that the government indoctrination centers have raised a generation of barbarians, what surprises me is that we don’t see more wholesale murder taking place in our already blood soaked land. In spite of the relentless Satanic propaganda drilled in by the government run schools, some survivors of those indoctrination camps still have a semblance of a conscience remaining.
Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman, who is currently suing President Obama for endangering his life as a white man, claimed this week that the “Muslim-in-chief” Obama treats white people as “inferior” because he wants “payback” for discrimination. Klayman told “Trunews” host Rick Wiles on Wednesday that while in the 1960s people of all races loved Motown music, that racial harmony was ruined by Obama.
“President Obama — who I call, actually, the Muslim-in-chief — favors his own people over other people,” Klayman said. “We deserve to be treated equally. I’m, in effect, a civil rights lawyer. I was on Fox News yesterday about that, the business channel, and I just pointed out that everybody needs to be represented by our president, not just blacks, not just Muslims, and not just black Muslims.”
Klayman claimed that Obama has “systematically … tried to fan the flames of racial hatred and division. The president has a problem. He is an angry man. He has done everything in his administration, whether it’s with regard to egging on violence against white police officers or whites in general to, in effect, have people, not of color but white people and others, pay reparations for what he saw as years of discrimination.”
“We don’t condone the discrimination of the past,” Klayman said, “we want to resolve it. And that’s exactly what Martin Luther King started to do back in the 1960s: judge people on the content of their character, not on their color; peaceful nonviolence, not like Black Lives Matter, but bringing about change and having the races respect each other and appreciate each other. You know, we all grew up [with] Motown Sound, we loved the Temptations, we loved the Supremes, you know. Why couldn’t that continue? Obama didn’t want it to continue.”
“Obama was raised as a Muslim,” Klayman continued. “Obama is taught to hate Christians and Jews. Obama does not accept the fact that this country should include everybody and he wants payback.”
“We just can’t take it anymore,” Klayman said of white Americans. “We’re equal to African-Americans, we’re not inferior, and Obama has treated us as if we are inferior in the last many years. I mean, overtaxing, Obamacare, destroying the entire healthcare system to take care of a few, executive amnesty, which brings in a lot of illegal aliens that commit crimes, a lot of them across the Mexican border, even Muslim terrorists, they’re being left in this country, bringing in people from Syria, everything else. It’s all part of his plan. It’s his clever caliphate, basically, to turn this country into, you know, something like his Middle Eastern brothers would have, and I hate to say that and it sounds extreme, but it’s gotten worse and worse.”
On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” host Rick Wiles continued his condemnation of the “Pokémon demons” inhabiting the game Pokémon Go, claiming that the game “could be used for the elimination of Christians” by showing players where Christians live. He predicted an onslaught of crime akin to the “The Purge: Election Year” movie.
“Churches are the number one sites on the app that are containing these Pokémon demons that people are trying to find,” Wiles said. “The number one site on the app are churches. So, if they are creating a technology that could be used for the elimination of Christians, here are the churches, here are the homes of the pastor, the elders, the Sunday school teachers.”
Wiles continued, “This movie, this ‘Purge: Election Year,’ are they preparing the minds of young people for a day of rage? I mean, we now, we have Anonymous calling for a day of rage. Are they whipping up this bloodlust, hoping that they can ignite it, they can get this fuse burning by October?”
“What do we do if Islamic leaders, radical, you know, Black Panther party leaders, all these whacked-out guys start saying, ‘We need a purge, we need a day of rage, we need a purge?’” Wiles asked.
“This is what the Lord told me in 1998 was coming,” Wiles claimed. “I saw a day of jihad, a day of bloodletting, that what the Lord showed me in ‘98 was pandemonium, people being killed, just innocent people being killed in their homes, being pulled out of their cars, being killed, people walking down the street, being slaughtered.”
For the past couple of months, Christian-nation advocate David Lane and dominionst Doug Stringer have been organizing a day-long prayer rally that will take place in Cleveland this Saturday. Timed to coincide with the Republican National Convention, the event will be the latest in the series of “The Response” rallies organized around Republican politicians. They are modeled after a series of “The Call” events organized by dominionist “apostle” Lou Engle.
The first Response, which was promoted by some of the most extreme and divisive Religious Right figures, served as the unofficial launch of Rick Perry’s doomed presidential bid in 2011. The Perry event reflected Lane’s perennial goal of uniting conservative evangelicals behind a single candidate. Other Response rallies have been hosted by Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Pat McCrory of North Carolina.
Stringer has been on the ground in Cleveland meeting with local clergy to promote Saturday’s event as a nonpolitical opportunity for Christians to come together across racial and denominational lines to pray for America. That was also the message delivered on a pre-Response conference call last week, on which Stringer and other organizers described the event as a time of unity and prayer so that the Christian church can be a source of healing and hope at this “providential time” in our nation.
That’s the bait part of the bait-and-switch nature of these events. The switch comes at the rallies themselves, which, along with prayer and praise music, promote the Religious Right’s political agendas on abortion, LGBT rights and separation of church and state.
As we noted when the Cleveland Response was announced:
Lane and Stringer took the Response to Charlotte, North Carolina, in September 2015. At this “nonpolitical” event, Religious Right rock star David Benham talked about gay rights groups who he said were out to “force” their agenda on the country, portraying a “spiritual battle that is now waging before us in this nation, the home of the brave and the land of the free.” Lane opened the “nonpolitical” North Carolina Response rally with a prayer that talked about the lack of prayer and Bible reading in the public schools, abortion, and “homosexuals praying at the inauguration.” Another speaker prayed for God to “help us be like Kim Davis, obeying the Constitution and defying federal criminals.”
Event sponsor David Lane is an intensely political operative who believes America’s mission is to advance the Christian faith. He has been trying to organize “an army” of conservative pastors to run for office in hopes that each of them will mobilize hundreds of volunteers to help turn out the evangelical vote.
While Lane’s dream of getting Religious Right leaders to coalesce around a single candidate was, to a significant extent, achieved this year with nearly unanimous backing for Ted Cruz, many evangelical voters did not follow the script. Lane is now putting his faith in Trump, who he believes “can be one of the top 4 presidents in American history.”
Another hint of the “nonpolitical” nature of the Cleveland event comes from its promotional materials, which included a video from E.W. Jackson, a failed Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in Virginia; Jackson has called the Black Lives Matter movement “demonic,” said promotion of LGBT equality is “spitting in the face of Almighty God,” and accused President Obama of being more interested in “defending Islam” than “defending America.”
Also gathering in Cleveland before the RNC is the Council for National Policy, a secretive network that brings together activist leaders from right-wing to far, far right. Politico reported this week that Ted Cruz is meeting with the group on Friday, which may act as a quiet launch for a 2020 White House run.
