Yesterday, conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg said that it is time for conservatives to rise up in this country and urged the entrepreneurial ones to create conservative alternatives to some of the most popular websites that he thinks have a liberal bias.
“We need a conservative Facebook, a conservative Google, a conservative Twitter,” he said.
American Pastors Network president and former Pennsylvania lawmaker Sam Rohrer linked Sunday’s mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando to Supreme Court decisions securing rights for LGBT people, telling conservative talk radio host Steve Deace this week that Supreme Court decisions involving marriage equality and “God’s order for human sexuality” have helped to cause God to remove “His hand of protection” from the country.
Rohrer told Deace that he has a “great deal of compassion for those who are involved” in the shooting and also believes that “these kind of events are only going to be increasing” for a number of reasons, including that “the Islamists, the Muslim Brotherhood folks, they have made it clear that they’re going to do that”; that “our president and those in office are soft, refuse to even identify the enemy ideology of Islam as the enemy”; and, finally, “it’s a large part because I believe God has removed his hand of blessing on this country because we’ve turned our back upon him, and when he removes his hand of protection, these kinds of things come forth.”
“God has made very clear,” Rohrer explained, “that every nation that He has established — and He establishes all nations, we’re told that all nations are established by God, even the very geographical boundaries of the nations are determined — that when a nation, any nation, does what God says, meaning that they fear Him, that they uphold and enforce God’s moral law and God’s design for the family and for the family and for civil government, all of those are His, when those things are done, then God will bless a nation.”
“One of those blessings are the increase of wealth, one of those things is a security and protection from the neighbors around them,” he continued, “even the enemies will be at peace with them, we’re told in a number of places in Scripture. But when a nation backs off of that, particularly a nation such as ours that has a very biblical basis in an understanding of biblical principles — that’s where our Constitution came from, Declaration of Independence before that came out of that. When those things were there and put in place, when a nation turns their back on those things as we have and [are] increasingly, arrogantly doing, then at that point the justice of God says ‘I cannot any longer bless’ and these things which you’re doing will lead to not His lack of blessing, but insecurity and so forth.”
Deace returned to the theme later in the interview, saying that America’s current standing with God is “essentially like when a parent has an unruly child that persists in a behavior or an addiction that is destructive and has tried repeatedly to reach them, has tried repeatedly to intervene, they will not listen, and so they reach a point where you essentially have to allow them to hit rock bottom on their own in order to get the message and just kind of pray that they don’t kill themselves in that process.”
Rohrer agreed that this was a “fairly accurate representation” of what is going on and outlined a number of ways that he believes that Americans have “turned their back on” God, including marriage equality and a redefinition of “God’s order for human sexuality.”
“You know,” he said, “God has established, and made it very, very clear, that He’s established the family, He’s established the church, He’s established the institution of civil government … But when a nation, when a family, when the church fails to employ, fails to do and, even worse, turns their back on God’s moral law and His design, there is nothing but difficulty and trouble that comes and follows from that.”
“And, unfortunately, as a nation, we’ve once known God,” he said, “‘In God we trust’ is our motto. But … Congress wouldn’t even pass that motto now, they wouldn’t even bring it up and the president wouldn’t sign it. And our courts declare to be immoral what is moral, we redefine God’s institution of marriage, we redefine God’s order for human sexuality and we expect God to sit back and continue to bless? He can’t.”
Messianic rabbi and End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn joined Glenn Beck yesterday on both his radio program and television show to warn that America is under judgment from God and at great risk of utter destruction.
Despite the fact that Cahn's first book, "The Harbinger," was a laughable work of fiction passed off as prophecy and his second book, "The Mystery of the Shemitah," turned out to be completely wrong, Beck desperately turned to Cahn for answers because he is terrified of what lies in store for this nation.
"Satan doesn't destroy, he perverts," Beck told Cahn during his radio program. "He perverts it so it's a tool in his hand ... The United States of America is an unbelievable power and I have said for years, if we don't destroy ourselves or if God doesn't do a Tower of Babel and bless us by destroying us, Satan will pervert us and we will be the darkest nation; we will make Hitler look like rookies."
Cahn agreed and warned that America is already heading down that road, pointing to the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling and the lighting up of the White House in rainbow colors.
"How much more can we do to provoke God?" Cahn asked. "I mean, we crossed a line."
Beck featured Cahn again on his television program last night, where he repeated his warning that America is unknowingly engaging in Baal worship, which prompted Cahn to declared that America is not only worshiping Baal, but the pagan of Ashtoreth, the god of sexual immorality, and Moloch, the god of death, as well, pointing to the false smear that Planned Parenthood has been selling fetal tissue for profit.
On his radio show Monday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said that President Obama “fostered this environment” in which terrorist attacks like the recent mass shooting in Orlando can occur by “promoting Islam” and marking Ramadan.
Perkins criticized Obama’s reaction to acts of terrorism in the U.S., saying he “immediately goes to this call for gun control and it’s like he — I don’t know if he’s oblivious to it or he thinks everybody else is and that we won’t remember that he’s the one that celebrated Ramadan in the White House, been promoting Islam on his world apology tour for America, and so on and so forth. I mean, it’s hacking Christianity while promoting the Islamic faith. I mean, where does it stop?”
Perkins claimed Obama has been “promoting” Islam throughout his eight years in office. He said Islam is “more than a religion. It’s an ideology, it’s a political ideology. It’s a military ideology that — look what it’s done. It’s left people dead on our streets and the president needs to be called out for it. The president has fostered this environment.”
Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, responded on his radio program Tuesday to the terrorist attack at a gay club in Orlando, blaming President Obama for a “willful” effort to undermine American security.
Perkins repeated the right-wing attack on Obama for not saying the words “radical Islamic terrorism,” claiming that the administration sees Christians, Republicans and veterans as just as much of a threat as radical Islamists, a reference to a phony right-wing scandal involving a 2009 Department of Homeland Security report. “Notice how this administration … when you talk about extremism, they put members of the Republican Party in that category,” he said, “They would label Christians — and have — as extremists. They would [label] returning veterans from combat as those that need to be monitored.”
He said that he hoped that Americans “are waking up that this is a deadly game of political correctness.”
“The thing about this,” he continued, “the president has been promoting both of these groups, the Islamic communities that have given rise to these individuals and the gay community. I would think those in the gay community would be demanding that this president cease his political correctness and protect all Americans, every American … I don’t care their ideology, I don’t care their life choices, they deserve to be protected from terrorists in this country.”
“And the president has failed, the president has failed America, he’s failed to keep our country safe,” he said. “And I think it’s willful by the failed policies that he’s continued to pursue that will not call the threat what it is.”

- Finally, Scott Lively says the massacre in Orlando happened because America has abandoned God: "What claim does any person or society have to protection by God if it doesn’t actually belong to Him — or in America‘s case, has pushed Him forcefully from every aspect of public life?"
Donald Trump is furious that the Washington Post reported on his recent suggestion that President Obama may be on the side of the terrorists, even going so far as to deny the newspaper credentials to cover his campaign events.
Trump, who often tries to raise conspiracy theories by saying that he is simply asking the question and only throwing things out there that he’s “heard” from others, repeatedly hinted in the wake of last weekend’s attack in Orlando that Obama may be deliberately helping Islamic extremists.
Trump said while discussing terrorism on Fox News on Monday:
He doesn't get it or he gets it better than anybody understands — it's one or the other, and either one is unacceptable …. Look, guys, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart or has something else in mind. And the something else in mind — people can't believe it. People cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There's something going on. It's inconceivable. There's something going on.
“Well there are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn't want to get it,” Trump said on NBC. “A lot of people think maybe he doesn't want to know about it.”
Yesterday, Trump told the Associated Press that Obama “continues to prioritize our enemy over our allies and, for that matter, the American people.” Earlier today, Trump shared on Twitter a Breitbart article which he claimed proves that Obama is in fact on the side of ISIS.
No one should be surprised by this Trump conspiracy theory.
Polls show that Trump’s supporters have widely embraced the conspiracy theory that the president is a secret Muslim. And the birther candidate has made such claims for years, among many, many conspiracy theories that he has embraced.
Here are seven other times when Trump has suggested the President Obama is secretly a Muslim or secretly sympathizes with terrorists:
1) ‘Maybe He Doesn’t Want To Get Rid Of The Problem’
In February, Trump told radio host Michael Savage that Obama refuses to say the magic words “radical Islamic terrorism” because maybe he doesn’t want to stop the terrorists.
We have a president that won’t even use the words and if you don’t use the words, you’re never going to get rid of the problem. We have a — maybe he doesn’t want to get rid of the problem. I don’t know exactly what’s going on.
Savage seemed to know exactly what Trump meant.
“Ah ha. Now you’re going as close to the board as a hockey player can go without hitting the puck into the stands. I get it,” he said.
In another interview with Savage, Trump falsely claimed that the U.S. was actively trying to prevent Russia from bombing the terrorist group ISIS.
2) Obama Is Arming ISIS
Obama sent weapons through Benghazi to ISIS yet he is holding up shipments to Israel. What is he thinking?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2014
So Obama wants to bomb ISIS in Iraq & arm them in Syria? What is he doing!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 17, 2014
3) Maybe It Says ‘Muslim’ On His Birth Certificate
In a 2011 interview with Laura Ingraham, Trump said that “somebody” told him that Obama might be suppressing the truth about his birthplace because his real birth certificate identifies him as a Muslim:
He doesn’t have a birth certificate or, if he does, there’s something on that certificate that is very bad for him. Now somebody told me, and I have no idea whether this is bad for him or not but perhaps it would be, that where it says ‘religion’ it might have ‘Muslim,’ and if you’re a Muslim, you don’t change your religion by the way, but somebody said, ‘Maybe that’s the reason he doesn’t want to show it.’ I don’t think so. I just don’t think he has a birth certificate and everybody has a birth certificate.
He made a similar statement on an interview that year with Bill O’Reilly: “He doesn't have a birth certificate. He may have one but there's something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or he may not have one. But I will tell you this. If he wasn't born in this country, it's one of the great scams of all time.”
4) Obama’s ‘Arabic’ Ring
In 2012, Trump tweeted an article from birther investigator Jerome Corsi that falsely claimed that Obama wears a ring bearing the Islamic statement of faith, something that Corsi believes is proof that Obama was secretly married to his male Pakistani roommate. (The ring only contains a series of loops).
“Who is this guy?” Trump asked.
Why does Barack Obama's ring have an arabic inscription? http://t.co/upa00265 Who is this guy?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2012
5) Madonna Knows The Truth!
Trump appeared to take a joke from Madonna way too seriously:
Does Madonna know something we all don't about Barack? At a concert she said "we have a black Muslim in the White House."— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 27, 2012
6) Scalia Funeral
Trump marked Justice Antonin Scalia’s death by wondering about the real reason Obama didn’t attend his funeral:
I wonder if President Obama would have attended the funeral of Justice Scalia if it were held in a Mosque? Very sad that he did not go!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2016
7) ‘There’s Something We Don’t Know About’
At a South Carolina campaign rally last year, Trump said that Obama is deliberately ignoring the problem of terrorism in the Islamic world to advance his nefarious agenda:
“We can’t close our eyes,” he said. “I don’t know what’s wrong with Obama, he wants to close his eyes and pretend it’s not happening. Why is he so emphatic on not solving the problem? There’s something we don’t know about. There’s something we don’t know about.”
Naturally, at least one of his supporters shouted, “He’s a Muslim!”
Yesterday, CNN's Anderson Cooper interviewed Florida attorney general Pam Bondi about last weekend's massacre at a gay nightclub in Orland and grilled her about her long history of anti-gay activism.
Predictably, extremist anti-gay activist Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association was outraged by Cooper's treatment of Bondi (as well as Bondi's poor performance during the interview), so he took it upon himself to answer Cooper's questions on Bondi's behalf on his radio program today.
But before he got to that, Fischer announced that because Cooper is gay, he is "disqualified" from covering any stories having to do with the issue of "the homosexual agenda."
"Anderson Cooper, who is an open, admitted homosexual ... therefore ought to recuse himself from any story like this," Fischer declared. "He has no business trying to do journalism on an issue as fraught with emotion as the homosexual agenda. He's disqualified from providing any kind of objective journalistic treatment of that topic."
On Monday, Tom DeLay stopped by the conspiracy theory outlet “Trunews,” where, in the same program in which host Rick Wiles called for Muslims to be deported from the U.S. and declare that the Orlando massacre was divine judgment, the former GOP House leader blasted President Obama’s handling of terrorist groups and the attack in Orlando.
DeLay said that the president has “put American lives in danger” and “emboldened” America’s enemies.
When Wiles asked if Obama is “actually on the other side of the war on terror,” DeLay said that Obama is “a Muslim sympathizer” who was “raised in a communist upbringing” and “hates America.”
