Cause our highest court to grant Idaho a permanent stay; to review these and other marriage cases and to affirm the constitutional right of states to decide who is qualified to marry under their own state law."
The right-wing Harlem pastor James David Manning, notorious for his inflammatory anti-Obama remarks and statements calling for the murder of gays and lesbians, is joining forces with Flip Benham’s Operation Save America to stage a “pro-life” event in Jackson, Mississippi.
Manning, along with WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie, is taking part in a rally demanding the closure of the only clinic in Mississippi which offers abortion services. Manning said the event, “Operation: Let My People Go,” will emulate the Freedom Riders in their effort to have activists “descend on The [Jackson Women’s Health Organization] to close Mississippi's only abortion mill.”
"Mississippi stands on the verge of making history, the first abortion-free state in America. We are excited to help hasten the day. In 'Operation: Let My People Go' we will join our black brethren to confront the last remaining death camp in Mississippi and beyond. The racial root of abortion that has led to black genocide must be addressed. Since our black brethren are a target of this monstrosity, they hold a powerful key to defeat it." Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, National Director of Operation Save America
Pastor James Manning, Harlem, NY will lead the team of delegates and deliver the eulogy for The Jackson Women's Health Organization. He declared, "A delegation of pastors, politicians, community leaders, and students, reminiscent of the 'Freedom Riders,' from all over America will descend on The JWHO to close Mississippi's only abortion mill."
Mychal Massie from Daily Rant stated, "Between 1882 and 1968, there were 3,446 blacks lynched in the United States. That is an 86 year span. Today in the United States there are 1,876 black babies murdered in the womb every day – which means the total known number of blacks lynched over an 86-year period is surpassed approximately every 45 hours. How many of those 1,876 preborn black babies are murdered at the abortion death mill located right here in Mississippi?" The statistics are shocking. Over 80 percent are committed against babies of color. The majority are black.
Bishop Otis Kenner II, Presiding Bishop of Kingdom Growth Fellowship of United Churches, recently became an Operation Save America leader and OSA's liaison to the black church in America. Kenner believes, "It is time the slumbering spirit that has muted the voices of the African American pastors be awakened. We know that abortion is happening among our members and in our communities, yet we turn a deaf ear and have remained silent far too long. Influence is a waste when not applied to the right circumstances. I urge pastors in God's stead to engage in the work of the church and join with Operation Save America. We must stop the slaying of innocent souls that has decimated our race and invoked God's wrath upon our nation."
Organizers also intend to sign an “Emancipation Proclamation For the Pre-born Child”:
Right after the press conference on Wednesday, October 15 at 11 AM, the following document will be read and officially signed. All Mississippians and out of state participants in “Operation: Let My People Go” event are welcomed to come and sign this historic document right at the last remaining death camp in Mississippi.
The National Emancipation Proclamation For the Pre-born Child
We, the pastors, elders, and citizens of the United States of America, do hereby declare on this 15th day of October, in the year of our Lord, 2014, that all children, from conception forward, are human beings. They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
In regard to these children, our government has been in rebellion against the Law of Almighty God since January 22, 1973. The Supreme Court of the United States of America, declared that children in their mother’s womb were not fully human and therefore were not entitled to the full protection of the laws of our land. Because of this open rebellion and blatant disregard for the Law of God and for life, our nation is suffering under the remedial judgments of God Himself. Blood is coursing down the corridors of our schools, work places, and streets. Because we have not hated bloodshed, bloodshed is now pursuing us (Ezekiel 35:6).
We the pastors, elders, and citizens of the city of Jackson, Mississippi and these United Sates, do hereby this day, hold the Supreme Court of the United States in contempt of the Court of Almighty God. We hold it in contempt of the lives of the children it was sworn to protect. We hold in contempt of the Court before whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
By virtue of the power and authority vested in us as pastors, elders, and members of the Church of Jesus Christ, we declare that the lives of all children (born and preborn) are sacred to God and worthy of defense. We with one voice decree, the preborn child shall now and forevermore be set free to live in America. They shall be welcomed in life and protected by law. Upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, we invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
We enjoin our brothers and sisters in Jackson to join us in this noble endeavor to speak for those children in the womb who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 31:8,9).
Ascribed in the city of Jackson this 15th day of October, in the year of our Lord, 2014.
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
Of course Republicans would never resort to using the Ebola outbreak in West Africa or violence committed by terrorist groups like ISIS to score political points against President Obama … they are just merely asking the question if Obama plans to put us into FEMA camps, let terrorists cross the border into the U.S. and infect everyone with Ebola.
5. Get Ready For FEMA Camps
Right-wing commentators seem pretty convinced that President Obama actually wants the Ebola outbreak to come to America, now they just need to ascribe to him motives to substantiate this latest fear.
Morgan Brittany, a conservative author and columnist for WorldNetDaily, offers her own view, arguing that Obama is “orchestrating” the Ebola outbreak “so martial law can be declared, guns can be seized and the populace can be controlled.” After all, Obama has purchased “$1 billion worth of disposable FEMA coffins” and set up “FEMA camps to house people in isolation,” all of which would be a shame to waste.
Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly believes the president wants to spread Ebola inside the U.S. because he thinks America should be “just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.” Kieth Ablow of Fox News agrees, writing in a column yesterday that “the president may literally believe we should suffer along with less fortunate nations,” a claim which he says is based on his expert opinion “as a psychiatrist who has studied this president only from a distance.”
American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, as usual, puts his own twist on things, suggesting this week that Obama wants to infect people with Ebola in order to “punish America for being racist.”
4. Liberals Are Out To Get Sam Brownback…Electorally, That Is
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is locked in a tight gubernatorial race this year despite running in one of the most Republican-leaning states in the nation, and while speaking with conservative reporter David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Brownback said he isn’t to blame for any of the state’s serious economic and budget troubles.
Brownback told Brody that he is the victim of a liberal-media plot to make the state’s economy look like it is in bad shape, insisting that progressives don’t realize that “tax policy takes some time to work.”
“I think they so desperately want what’s happening in this state to fail,” Brownback said. “The left is just so desperate to see — they want this model to fail so bad.”
He even seemed offended that Democrats would dare to field a candidate to run against him and condemn his economic policies: “They want to get me, electorally, before we get on through this and prove that this is working.”
Brody predictably agreed, suggesting that the media is exclusively covering “negative news coming out of the state economically” and is leading “an out-to-get-you campaign because you’re a conservative-type guy.”
3. Supreme Court Blues
Conservative legal activist Mat Staver has been on a media tour lambasting the Supreme Court for letting several lower court marriage equality decisions stand this week, a move that effectively legalized same-sex marriage in several states, including Virginia, where Staver works as dean of the Liberty University School of Law.
Staver has pulled no punches, comparing the decision to the Dred Scott case and insisting that it marks “the beginning of the end of western civilization,” adding that marriage equality will “make the economy poorer” and “make the society unstable.”
Staver even said the Supreme Court’s decision not to act on appeals from states seeking to keep marriage bans in place will lead to the proliferation of several different “kinds of serious and deadly disease.”
2. Drug Cartel Caliphate
Despite the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has said that there is no evidence of ISIS members trying to enter the U.S. through the southern border, GOP members of Congress beg to differ.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz said at least four terrorists have tried to cross into Texas, while his colleague Duncan Hunter put the figure at ten. Neither found the need to share any evidence to substantiate his claim..
Tom Cotton, the Arkansas congressman and U.S. Senate candidate, warned voters that ISIS and other groups are working with Mexico-based drug cartels to launch terrorist attacks in America as they “infiltrate our defenseless border and attack us right here in places like Arkansas.”
The discredited claim seems to be a real winner for the GOP, as Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick, who is running for lieutenant governor, has even turned the issue into a campaign ad:
1. Obama Is The Antichrist, Again
Need more proof that Obama is the Antichrist? Well, Bible Code “expert” Jonathan Wright is here to help. Wright recently shared with End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles his findings that the Bible Code proves that Obama is either the Antichrist or an Antichrist-like figure.
He also found more evidence of Obama’s Antichrist nature: a Muslim wedding ring… which unfortunately for Wright doesn’t actually exist.
Sandy Rios of the American Family Association delivered another morbid prediction about America’s future today on her talk radio show, explaining that the country isn’t witnessing political fights between Republicans and Democrats but is actually experiencing a Satanic assault against America.
“This is not business as usual, this is not Republicans versus Democrats, this is not normal. This is the left hell-bent on destroying — there is an evil force of many different stripes working together to destroy all that we hold dear and good. If we do not fight back there will be — people going to lose their jobs in droves, we’re going to lose our health care, there will be hunger, I think there will be riots, I think there will be violence,” she said. “I’m not saying next week, I’m not saying after the November elections, I’m not saying that, but I’m telling you that our system is getting ready to implode.”
While looking out on the city of Chicago during a recent trip to the city, Rios said she realized that soon America “will fall” because “the foundations are crumbling.”
Earlier this week, Mike Huckabee ripped into the Republican Party for what he feels is its insufficient willingness to take a public stand against gay marriage, declaring that he is "utterly exasperated" with the GOP and its leadership on the issue. He threatened to leave the party and take a bunch of "God-fearing, Bible-believing people" with him unless the party speaks out more forcefully against gay rights.
Predictably, the National Organization for Marriage hailed Huckabee as a hero today, praising him for "speaking for millions of Americans who are sick of Republican elitists remaining silent and refusing to fight for the survival of marriage." The anti-gay organization echoed Huckabee's complaints and similarly warned that "millions of conservatives will abandon [the GOP] and join with officials who will fight" if the party does not take a stand on this issue:
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today praised Governor Mike Huckabee for his comments calling out Republicans for failing to stand strong for marriage in the face of the unconscionable decision of the US Supreme Court to allow lower court decisions redefining marriage to take effect without so much as even considering their merits. Huckabee told an interviewer that if Republicans abdicate on marriage and abortion he would leave the party and become an Independent. "I'll start finding people that have guts to stand," he pledged.
"Governor Huckabee is exactly right and is speaking for millions of Americans who are sick of Republican elitists remaining silent and refusing to fight for the survival of marriage, the principal building block of society and the foundation of civilization," said Brian S. Brown, president of NOM. "Republicans who remain silent on marriage do so at their own peril and risk losing elections across the country. If conservatives see Republican candidates fail to lead on marriage — or worse, come out in favor of redefining marriage — then conservatives will abandon those candidates."
Brown said that some Republican leaders were actively supporting candidates who are not only in favor of same-sex 'marriage,' but also support abortion. House Speaker John Boehner and the National Republican Campaign Committee are actively supporting Carl DeMaio (CA-52) and Richard Tisei (MA-6), both of whom are campaigning in favor of gay 'marriage' and support abortion.
"NOM has joined with other groups to actively campaign against Carl DeMaio and Richard Tisei, along with Oregon Republican US Senate candidate Monica Wehby, because they are antithetical to the Republican platform and GOP principles," said Brown. "We refuse to follow the leaders in Washington as if we were sheep expected to dutifully support candidates whose positions are an insult to conservatives and will severely damage the nation. We are going to do our best to defeat these candidates because they are wholly unworthy of holding high office."
Brown noted that some prominent Republicans such as Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee, Rep. Tim Huelskamp and others had condemned the US Supreme Court's decision to allow the redefinition of marriage to proceed apace in five states.
"We are grateful for those leaders who have spoken out to condemn the Supreme Court for their unprincipled and outrageous decision to allow the redefinition of marriage to occur in these states," Brown said. "We are prepared to work tirelessly to support them and others who lead in the fight to preserve marriage. But Governor Huckabee is right. If more Republican leaders do not speak up and join the fight, then millions of conservatives will abandon them and join with officials who will fight. Marriage is on the line in our country, and it's time for people to get off the bench and into the battle."
Ever since he won the Republican primary and became the official GOP nominee for an open seat in the Colorado state legislature, Gordon Klingenschmitt has proven himself to be a complete embarrassment to his party as party officials and fellow Republicans have repeatedly denounced him.
The state GOP has quickly learned that having a radical Religious Right activist and anti-gay exorcist as its candidate is creating nothing but headaches since Klingenschmitt seems to have no idea what he is doing, as he demonstrated once again when he recently told local residents who asked to meet with him to discuss his rabidly anti-gay views that he would not do so until after the election and even then, he'd only be willing to meet after screening them because he fears for this safety:
Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Colorado Springs state House candidate who has gotten attention from making controversial statements, told three members of the Colorado Springs lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community he would only meet with them after the election and only if his "security staff" screened the attendees first to determine whether it would be a "safe meeting."
"Sadly, I've received threats from people who hate religious freedom, and I wonder if the following video is representative of the behavior of some people with whom you are inviting me to meet?" Klingenschmitt wrote in an email.
The video attached is of Anita Bryant - the singer who vocally opposed LGBT rights in the '70s - getting a pie thrown in her face during a live television interview nearly four decades ago.
Steve Durham, a Republican activist and lobbyist, said the El Paso County Republican Executive Director Daniel Cole was included in the exchange and sent a response to Klingenschmitt rebuking him.
"The response from the party was that Mr. Klingenschmitt's email was inappropriate and uncalled for and that he should chose his words more carefully," Durham said. "There was a note of pretty strong disapproval."
Yet despite his radical record, it looks like the state Republican party can expect to have him around for the foreseeable future.
As Klingenschmitt barrels along with a huge fundraising advantage, he is insisting that his opponent is the real extremist:
As of Sept. 29, Klingenschmitt has spent more than $42,079, compared with Fornander's $827, according to the secretary of state.
Secretary of state voter registration statistics as of Oct. 1 show 18,296 registered Republicans, 7,791 registered Democrats and 14,061 unaffiliated voters in the district.
Klingenschmitt, an Air Force Academy graduate, believes his views represent the district, which includes eastern Colorado Springs and Peterson Air Force Base.
He believes local control in education, lower taxes and less regulation for businesses and a protection of constitutional rights are the biggest issues in the upcoming election.
"My opponent is far more extreme on the left than I am in the center right," Klingenschmitt said.
Michael Savage took to “The Steve Malzberg Show” today to promote his new book, “Stop the Coming Civil War,” and expound on his conspiracy theory that President Obama is deliberately infecting Americans with Ebola.
“The fact of the matter is, in two more years we’re not going to survive,” Savage said of the Obama presidency. “He has been conducting a civil war on America’s institutions from the day he seized power. But it’s not just him. Take a look at the people surrounding him, ‘the four horsewomen of the apocalypse,’ they’re all thirty, forty years radicals on the left, that’s what they’re doing, they’re achieving their revolutionary goals right in front of our eyes.”
(We aren't entirely sure who Savage's "four horsewomen" are, only that in an WorldNetDaily article earlier this year, he identified two as State Department official Victoria Newland and National Security Advisor Susan Rice.)
He said Obama is letting Ebola “get out of control,” adding: “I named the president Obola the other day because my fear is that will be his legacy.”
Savage also attacked Obama for praising Abraham Lincoln, suggesting that because Lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the Civil War, Obama is going to send his critics to jail without trial any day now.
Of course, virtually every U.S. president in modern times has spoken highly of Lincoln, but never mind that!
“That’s one of Obama’s role models, that’s why I say you may think I’m inventing this to sell a book, then answer this, then how come there were 1.4 million hits on the article WND wrote the other day that was linked on Drudge, ‘Savage: Civil War, Savage says 30 days to save America'? 1.4 million people clicked on that, there are people who understand what’s going on,” he said.
Responding today to Mike Huckabee’s threat to leave the GOP over Republican leaders’ muted response to gay marriage victories, Rep. Rob DeSantis reassured the former governor that the Republican Party is not giving up on its fight against gay rights.
The freshman Republican from Florida told Newsmax TV that Huckabee and other Religious Right leaders shouldn’t even think about leaving the GOP.
“Being in Congress and seeing the left wing of the Democratic Party and the elite media in action, they are hostile to conservative cultural values across the board, they are hostile to religious liberty and a lot of our traditions and I think that the Republican Party and conservative voters are really the only force against that,” he said.
“I understand where [Huckabee's] coming from but I think there’s a whole bunch of issues in which the left is hostile to where the governor is going to be coming from and really you’ve got to have a strong opposition party to be able to stand up for those values.”
Linda Harvey of Mission America warned on her radio bulletin yesterday that America has entered “a time of possible civil disobedience” following the Supreme Court’s recent marriage equality announcement, telling listeners that “we must not serve the interests of sin and darkness” and “this court’s inaction is an act motivated by evil and deception and ultimately will not stand.”
“This is attempted theft of what God has ordained and our Lord will not honor this lawlessness,” Harvey said. “Allowing homosexuality to become normal in America may certainly be part of God’s judgment on our once-Christian nation for our irresponsible sexual practices and for turning our back on what the Lord has taught us. Even so, God will at some point allow the consequences of such defiance to play itself out and that will be a very tragic day indeed for those who have thumbed their noses at the Lord as they celebrate sin.”
Harvey hoped the court’s action will actually give a boost to the work of anti-gay activists: “Those of us who know the truth about homosexuality are far from finished, and in fact, God will use this cowardly act by the majority in our high court to bring a new zeal and fervor to the pro-family movement.”
