Obama Derangement Syndrome Watch, Supersize WorldNetDaily Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

As for Mr. Obama, who is on record as having spoken of “my Muslim faith,” he must redeem his failing “presidency” by making it quite clear that he is not a terrorist sympathizer. He is, of course, entitled to his “Muslim faith,” for your nation was born of a desire to replace the Catholic and then Protestant intolerance of Europe with a more open-minded approach to other people’s faith.

Yet a true leader has to get his priorities right. And Mr. Obama’s whining about the non-threat of global warming and his culpable silence on the fact that people who call themselves Muslims are responsible for nearly all terrorist acts around the world are no longer acceptable.

For while one may tolerate another’s religion, if that “religion” increasingly seems to be the wellspring of terrorism, and if that “religion’s” leaders say and do nothing to deter the terrorists, and if that “religion’s” adherents, such as Mr. Obama, are also sullenly silent, then perhaps, after all, it is Islam itself that should no longer be tolerated.

Perhaps Mr. Obama and others who share his Muslim faith should be debarred from holding any public office on grounds of a grievous and life-threatening conflict of interest. To be silent in the face of Islamic terror is to be a sympathizer with that terror.

-- Christopher Monckton, Nov. 15 WorldNetDaily column

Barack Obama was also profound in another of his statements: “This is a heartbreaking situation and obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like.”

Yeah, Barack, it is ‘heartbreaking” – a word you use for just about every lamentable situation you feel compelled to comment on.

But there is something missing.

Just as when the Russian Plane exploded killing all on board – men, women and children – Obama said not a word of condolence for that loss of life.

Now, he’s done the same thing: not a word of sympathy for the dead and wounded, even though they include several American citizens.

But then, Obama is a citizen of the world – nay, the universe. He needs not be concerned with just one country, even though it’s the one that has given him the bully pulpit.

Isn’t it time for the “I” word?

-- Barbara Simpson, Nov. 15 WND column

Americans are trembling in rage and disbelief as they watch this dangerously narcissistic commander in chief show no passion for defending the United States but gush with emotion over the prospect of dumping 10,000 Syrian refugees in our land without proper security screening. We see photos of him with Russian thug President Vladimir Putin and think to ourselves, “I hope Putin will talk some sense into him about ISIS.”

What a surreal time we are living in. What an age of presidential denial. God help us.

-- David Limbaugh, Nov. 16 WND column

If you could go ahead with a plan to make America as vulnerable and unsafe as possible, you couldn’t do it better than Barack Obama. The unbelievable madness continues with this administration, and when you think it can’t get any worse, it does.


Please, God, send us a leader. Someone who can see clearly what needs to be done and has the brains, guts and courage to do it.

-- Morgan Brittany, Nov. 17 WND column

I suppose I should not be in shock, but I am. Did you hear the president Monday, condescendingly lecturing us about our “values” and how we should not have a “litmus test” against Muslims?

Mr. President, how about no “litmus test” against Christians? Your administration drives believers out of business, fining them, threatening them and forces them to embrace institutionized sodomy, all the while trampling the First Amendment. But let’s put that issue aside for a moment.

OK, President Obama, we get your “no litmus test for Muslims” policy, but how about at least a thorough vetting process to ferret out radical Islamists? A litmus test for those who want to blow up our planes, to burn our homes, to behead our people, to rape our wives, to sell our children into slavery – Is THAT too much to ask?

I have never beat the “Obama’s a Muslim” drum, and I won’t now. But the evidence is overwhelming that he cares little for authentic Christians, while doing everything he can to affirm Islam and to coddle Muslims – violent or peaceful.


We are now at STAGE THREE.

In STAGE ONE, we were all in shock at the things Obama did, thinking, “He is merely inept. Surely this must be incompetence. No competent person would do this.” So we thought.

STAGE TWO was “This is more serious than ineptness. He is devious. This is part of his Saul Alinsky training coming out. He is smart. But this is intentional. He is not interested in merely ‘fundamentally changing’ America. He is set on perverting her.”

But now we have entered STAGE THREE. This one is much more serious. Commentators on TV are now using the term “delusional” as they describe his indescribable and atrocious response to the horrors of Paris from the G20 
meetings in Turkey.

-- Jim Garlow, Nov. 17 WND column

Amazingly, Mr. Obama wants to import a couple of hundred thousand Muslims over the next coming years. Only a dopey, liberal stooge would try and convince us that all these immigrants are peace-loving Muslims who will respect our Constitution and assimilate quickly into our society and culture. 

-- Ted Nugent, Nov. 18 WND column

Politicians are now calling ISIS “a creation of Obama” and claiming that this president, through his actions, is benefiting ISIS.

After the Paris attacks, what did America hear from this treasonous President Barack Hussein Obama (his Muslim name)? (Luke 3:19) America heard a dictator who was angry and agitated with those who were comparing ISIS to the Muslims.

Well, Barack, like it or not, the created “terror” group ISIS (a global political battering ram to create chaos and upend nations only to consolidate power for the United Nations) is Muslim; and Muslims are ISIS.

-- Bradlee Dean, Nov. 19 WND column

The bottom line, dear and fellow patriots: If the Republicans do not act and fail to institute meaningful impeachment and conviction proceedings to legally remove the Muslim sympathizer in the White House before it is too late, then We the People should demand that those responsible, Republican House and Senate leaders themselves be impeached and convicted.

The nation simply cannot afford another year and a half of Obama and the Muslim terrorists he allows to run loose worldwide. If this state of affairs continues, September 11 will look in retrospect like a warm-up act, and by the time of the 2016 presidential elections next November, there may be little left of our beloved nation when it comes to our national security!

-- Larry Klayman, Nov. 20 WND column

I believe God wants Christians to pray a very specific prayer: Pray for the conversion of Barack Obama out of Islam. Just that. Nothing more. Try that this Sunday. It should liven up your church service.

-- Craige McMillan, Nov. 20 WND column

Last week, I asked if it isn’t time to raise the “I” word in relation to Barack Obama. “Impeach” is the word, but the reality is that with this Congress, it will not happen.

But as the week progressed, other words were raised about Obama. One was “retire” – step down because of his confusing, contradictory and, too often, just plain questionable decisions. Remember, this is the man who said he would “lead from behind.” I studied logic – what does that mean?

As the week progressed, more and more Americans wonder whether Barack Obama really has the best interests of the United States “first” on his list of things to do. He is supposed to be the leader of the free world, but it’s clear that’s virtually the last thing on his mind.

At WND, Threatening Violence Is 'Free-Thinking'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Bob Unruh writes in a Nov. 18 WorldNetDaily article:

Someone doesn’t like your social-media postings criticizing the government.

So, big deal, you respond.

But then he calls authorities, and, suddenly, the Secret Service and FBI are on your doorstep. You’re declared to have mental problems, and you’re handcuffed and locked up, against your will, for a week for a psychological evaluation.

That’s the story of decorated Marine Brandon Raub, whose appeal of his case has been refused by the U.S. Supreme Court, leaving in place the precedent of how his case was handled.

“This case was about more than one Marine’s right to not be targeted for speaking out against the government,” said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, which represented Raub in his fight over his 2012 detention.

Actually, that's not Raub's story -- and Unruh is hiding the truth. There's a reason Unruh doesn't quote from Raub's "social-media postings criticizing the government," after all.

As we've previously detailed, one of the things Raub posted on Facebook -- amid his rantings that the U.S. government was complicit in the 9/11 attacks -- was a lyric from a rap song, "Sharpen my axe; I'm here to sever heads," and a declaration that "WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK."

The occasion of Unruh's article was the Supreme Court's refusal to take up Raub's case, but Unruh doesn't clearly explain what the case is about since, as per his history and in defiance of WND editor Joseph Farah's rarely demonstrated insistence that WND reporters are "required to seek out multiple sources and contrary viewpoints in news articles," he is only interested in telling one side of the story and serving as stenographer for Raub's lawyer's at the right-wing Rutherford Institute. As Law 360 details, Raub was appealing previous court rulings that his rights weren't violated in the detention following the posting of his violent words. Law 360 also notes that another thing Raub posted was "This is revenge. Know that before you die," which along with his other statements appear to run counter to attorney John Whitehead's insistence that Raub "never threatened violence."

Law 360 also recited the side of Raub's story Unruh doesn't want you to know -- starting with the fact that it was Raub's fellow Marines, not an anonymous "someone" who "doesn’t like [his] social-media postings criticizing the government" as Unruh claims, who alerted authorites about Raub:

In the summer of 2012, several Marine veterans who had served with Raub in Iraq contacted the FBI after he posted a series of increasingly ominous messages on Facebook, according to the opinion.


FBI and local law enforcement officials visited Raub at his home in Chesterfield County in Virginia, where they observed that his demeanor varied wildly over the course of their questioning, going from completely calm to extremely emotional, according to the opinion.

While Raub didn’t threaten violence, he didn’t answer when asked if he intended to, according to the opinion.

He also quizzed the FBI agents about government conspiracy theories, such as Raub’s believe that the government fired a missile into the Pentagon on 9/11.

After half an hour, the officials decided to call Campbell, who recommended that Raub be detained for an evaluation after they told him about the Facebook posts and their conversation with Raub.

Campbell interviewed Raub in jail, where he observed that Raub was distracted and had difficulty answering questions. Along with Raub’s belief that he was destined to lead a coming revolution, Campbell concluded that he might be paranoid and delusional, and asked a judge for a temporary detention order.

At the hospital, a psychologist examined Raub and agreed that he showed symptoms of psychosis, according to the opinion. Hospital staff then petitioned the state court for an order of involuntary admission for treatment.

At first, Raub was ordered to stay in the hospital for 30 days, but then after three days, the court released him, saying that the petition didn’t have any factual allegations.

Unruh also makes sure not to mention one more spot of trouble Raub found himself in: In July 2014, Raub was arrested on charges of indecent liberties with a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Investigators said Raub and his brother gave alcohol to two teenage girls. Later, Raub was accused of exposing himself to one of them and attempting to have her touch him inappropriately. Those charges were later dropped after it was ruled that Raub was not in a "custodial or supervisory relationship" at the time one of the teenage girls performed oral sex on him.

But the most amazing part of Ubnruh's deceitful article is the headline: "Supremes hang free-thinking Marine out to dry."

That's right -- threatening violence is just "free-thinking" at WND.

Also, Raub hasn't been hung out to dry -- he's been free since he was three-day detention two years ago.

WND Can't Decide Whether Muslims In U.S. Must Be Tracked
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily can't quite decide what to do with the Muslims. Should they be tracked like Nazis, or not?

On Nov. 20, WND published an article by Douglas Ernst serving as stenographer for Rush Limbaugh's ranting that anyone is dare accusing Donald trump of wanting to track Muslims in America:

Rush Limbaugh blasted the “Drive-by media” on Friday for spreading an orchestrated hit-piece on Donald Trump by a “little know-nothing reporter.”

The Associated Pres, BBC, Rolling Stone, the Washington Post and a host of other media outlets ran with a Nov. 19 story first reported by Yahoo News national correspondent and Business Insider senior political correspondent Hunter Walker. The reporter wanted to know if a Trump administration would favor “special identification” for American Muslims as part of a terror-monitoring program.

What do YOU think? Sound off on media coverage of Donald Trump!

We’re going to have to – we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Media then took Trump’s decision to ignore allusions to Nazi Germany as de facto support for tyrannical policies.

Then, the same day, WND published an article by Leo Hohmann upset that Muslims in America weren't being tracked Nazi-style:

A Syrian refugee recently resettled in Louisiana has gone missing, and state officials were surprised to find out that federal Homeland Security agents do not track the whereabouts of foreign refugees out of respect for their “constitutional rights.”

The refugee was resettled in the Baton Rouge area in June by Catholic Charities, a subcontractor that resettles thousands of refugees in the U.S. every year for the federal government and United Nations. The Catholic group, along with others with Lutheran, Episcopal, evangelical and Jewish affiliations, gets paid by the head with taxpayer money for every refugee they bring to the U.S.

But when this particular Syrian refugee turned up missing about a week ago, the Louisiana State Police confirmed he was headed to Washington, D.C., to unite with family, WBRZ TV in Baton Rouge reported.

Once in Washington, the refugee was apparently supposed to “check in” with authorities there, according to state officials. But he never did.

There is nothing illegal about this because the State Department, which oversees the program, does not require any sort of monitoring or tracking of refugees.

In fact, the refugee was never "missing" -- the Louisiana State Police said that the refugee "was relocated through official channels to the Washington D.C. area."

This being WND, Hohmann's article has not been updated or corrected to reflect the fact that the refugee was never "missing" -- or that it conflicts with WND's purported horror that Trump is being accused of wanting to track Muslims in the U.S.

Hillary Derangement Syndrome, Supersize WND Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Thursday, congressional Republicans held their long advertised hearing on the Benghazi scandal, calling as a witness none other than the “Wicked Witch of the Left,” Hillary Clinton. Fresh off of her presidential debate performance ironically held in “Sin City,” Las Vegas, Hillary, looking a bit worn, was confronted with questions about why newly released emails showed that she knew that the attack on the U.S. mission was the result of terrorists linked to al-Qaida, but instead lied to the families of the victims as well as the American public, blaming the attack on a video critical of the Prophet Muhammad.


This case, more than the hapless efforts of congressional establishment Republicans, could seal the fate of the Wicked Witch of the Left, much like the house that fell on the original evil witch in “The Wizard of Oz.” Hopefully, with God’s grace and divine justice, Hillary will soon be wearing a pair of red shoes in federal prison, and the nation and the world will be rid of this modern-day evil witch once and for all.

-- Larry Klayman, Oct. 23 WorldNetDaily column

There’s a reason that William Safire, a Pulitzer Prize-winning political columnist for the New York Times, labeled Hillary a “congenital liar” back in 1996.

Do voters really want another truth dodger, ethics compromiser, ego-driven justifier and chronic congenital liar sitting in the highest office of the land and being chief of all its armed forces?

-- Chuck Norris, Oct. 25 WND column

I’ve met liars worse than Hillary. I’ve known liars who never told the truth, including one famous hometown boy who told the truth once but he thought he was lying. But I don’t think I’ve ever met a liar as comfortable as Hillary.

-- Barry Farber, Oct. 27 WND column

At this point it doesn’t look like anything can stop the Clintons from returning to the White House. If none of our best interrogators can get anything to stick, no one can. She snookered them into holding the hearing in public so that she could pull out the sympathy card, firmly holding her head high as they “bullied” her. I’m sure she had months with an acting coach to pull that off.

Her nomination and eventual presidency has been a set up from the get-go. Anyone who doesn’t see it has to be blind, and the sad thing is that it doesn’t look like anything can be done about it. The fix has been in for years, and that’s why the Democratic Party has no viable candidate running except her. Jim Webb knows it, Chaffee knows it (both of whom have dropped out of the race), even Bernie Sanders knows that he is just there as a sham candidate. The media will continue its fake reporting, gushing over how wonderfully presidential she is and pretending that this is an actual election. As such, it’s obvious that there is nothing to stop this inevitable victory except an act of God.

-- Morgan Brittany, Oct. 27 WND column

Hillary Clinton’s performance art before Congress last week did not impress anyone who was not already inclined to slavishly adore her. While not quite as combative as her infamous “What difference, at this point, does it make?” testimony just a few months after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic installation in Benghazi, Clinton’s most recent appearance was every bit as brazen, obfuscating and deceitful.

-- Laura Hollis, Oct. 29 WND column

It is difficult to believe that the federal prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Clinton will not recommend that she be indicted. Inexplicably, she seems to have forgotten that they were monitoring what she said under oath to the Benghazi committee. By lying under oath, and by misleading Congress, she gave that team additional areas to investigate and on which to recommend indictments.

When those recommendations are made known, no ballot will bear her name.

-- Andrew Napolitano, Nov. 4 WND column

Hillary’s political life has been a myriad of legal entanglements and behavior that at the very least border on treason and at the worst demands she be charged, found guilty and sentenced to prison for the maximum amount of time allowable under the law.

Hillary wants to be president, but she has proven herself incapable of restraint from alleged criminal behavior, going back to her time in Arkansas. She is a bitter harridan who has subverted justice and due process. I would also argue that she in concert with Obama suborned perjury in the aftermath of Benghazi.

Obama Derangement Syndrome Watch, WND Management Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

So, let’s take stock: abandonment by his father, early Muslim training, toxic teen influences, hardcore Marxist indoctrination and Alinsky training, drug abuse (“Choom Gang”), association with criminals (Tony Rezko) and terrorists (William Ayers), racist religious affiliation (Jeremiah Wright), extreme political ambition and probable mental illness/disorder. Quite a cocktail that forms the current U.S. president’s worldview and sensibilities.

The question is not whether Obama is delusional or not – that is undeniable. The question is, in what frame of reference is he delusional – the narrow one Krauthammer cites, regarding Obama’s denial that radical Islam poses an existential threat to America and the world? Or the wider context of the rest of life? For when we widen our scope, we are forced to acknowledge that Obama gravitates toward evil and delusion not just with regard to the jihad threat, but in virtually every area: He wants to force 15-year-old girls to shower naked with boys who delusionally believe they’re girls. He intentionally allows our nation to be overrun with illegal aliens and legal “refugees” from cultures that hate America (today’s headline says of the Syrian refugees already in the U.S., 2,098 are Muslims and 53 are Christians). He annually releases tens of thousands of convicted criminal illegal aliens – we’re talking murderers, rapists and drug dealers – back onto American streets. He’s a radical proponent of what can only be called infanticide, the “aborting” of fully formed, full-term healthy human babies.

In every area, Obama demonstrates an unfortunate affinity for that which normal people would describe as destructive, corrupt, evil.

Whether this is because Obama is evil at his core, or whether there’s a decent person locked up inside but who has been traumatized and brainwashed – a Manchurian president, programmed not by exotic far-off communist brainwashers, but by a nonstop sequence of corrupting influences throughout his life – is not ours to know.

Ultimately, the question is largely academic. Whatever the ultimate explanation of Obama’s delusional presidency, he demonstrates at every turn a remarkable attraction for that which is destructive and corrupting to human life, that is, “evil.” And he is dragging America – and increasingly the world – through hell in search of it, which he somehow, however inexplicably, sees as good.

-- David Kupelian, Nov. 17 WorldNetDaily column

The list of potentially devastating and catastrophic threats seems almost endless when you start enumerating them.

In considering all of them, however, I came to an alarming conclusion.

The No. 1 threat to America’s national security has a name. It’s a person. It’s the de facto president of the United States at least until Jan. 20, 2017 – more than a year from now. The No. 1 enemy of this great experiment in self-governance and limited government under the rule of law and through the will of the people is none other than the man in the White House – Barack Obama.

I don’t make this assertion lightly.

I make it on the weighing of the evidence before us.

Would ISIS have a chance to spread its virus of death and mayhem throughout the free world without Obama’s incubation?

Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

Could he do more to encourage radical Islam’s goals of imposing fear and asserting control through his policies of forced importation of tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands, of so-called “refugees” from the Middle East into the U.S. without screening against the kinds of people who attacked Paris last week?

When he accuses Republicans of spreading “fear and panic” by questioning the wisdom of this dictatorial plan imposed on an unwilling republic and sovereign states isn’t he actually and deliberately doing what he accuses his political opponents of doing?


Could I be right that America’s No. 1 national security threat is not named ISIS, not named Putin, not named al-Qaida or China or economic calamity but rather Barack Hussein Obama?

WND Doctor Still Pushing Discredited Filthy-Illegals Smear
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Elizibeth Lee Vliet, former director of the right-wing Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, has long hurled screeds warning against disease-ridden illegal immigrants, usually containing misleading or false information, and WorldNetDaily has given her that platform.

Vliet strikes again in a Nov. 11 WND column cheering on Donald Trump's fearmongering about illegal immigrants:

Donald Trump is right about this: Illegal immigration is one of the most serious threats to national security, American sovereignty and economic stability.

Even Trump, however, has not yet addressed the even more serious medical dangers of illegal immigration for Americans.

Invisible travelers coming across the border with the people: bacteria like tuberculosis (TB), viruses such as EVD-68 that killed so many U.S. children in 2014, Ebola, West Nile, dengue fever, parasites and fungal illnesses.

Delays in access to medical services for Americans with longer waits to see doctors, especially for Medicaid patients.

Long waits in emergency rooms jammed with illegals waiting for care at U.S. taxpayer expense.

The vastly higher costs for states to cover Medicaid services designed to provide medical care for low-income American citizens, but now expanded to serve those here illegally as well.

Given that we've already documented that the enterovirus EVD-68 outbreak of last year was not caused by illegal immigrants, it's likely she's overstating the rest of this as well. Indeed, nobody is bringing Ebola across the Mexican border.

Vliet goes on to rant about how "TB in the U.S. is mostly an “imported” disease brought by people coming from countries where it is widespread, unlike the U.S.," making sure to emphasize that "foreign-born people" are primarily spreading it. in fact, there is no epidemic of tuberculosis -- or any of the other communicable diseases Vliet rants about -- on the southern border.

It's important to remember that Vliet and the AAPS have no interesting in truth or accuracy when issuing their anti-immigrant screeds. Remember that back in 2003, an AAPS journal article (which purports to be peer-reviewed) asserted that leprosy cases in the U.S. -- a complete lie. To our knowledge, the AAPS has never issued a correction of the article, and the original aricle is still available at the AAPS website.

Because she insists on putting fearmongering over facts, there's simply no reason to believe anything Vliet says on medical issues.

Is Jesse Lee Peterson Secretly A White KKK Leader?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Read the following:

Dear white people: your days are numbered

This has been a brutal couple of weeks for those with white skin.

It started with a three-ring circus at the University of Missouri, another landmark in the slow death of white America. And it drew to a close with the actual deaths of scores of French citizens.


The University of Missouri will never be the same now.

Weak, liberal whites have created monsters in their schools. The monsters are now eating them, and threatening to eat others.

By Thursday, chaos reigned across the country as students protested their schools and called for heads to roll.

The situation will not get better until white Americans put an end to it. In fact, it will only get worse.


And with clear evidence that white Americans are standing by as their country is going down in flames, Friday evening we heard news of the Paris attacks and concert hall massacre of mostly white French by Muslim terrorists.

Somewhere along the way, whites in Europe and America have lost their connection to God and have decided to give up defending their communities and freedoms. Europe has been in the process of handing their continent over to Muslims. And white Americans are handing over their country to black malcontents – and Muslims. Friday it was reported that the first wave of Syrian immigrants had arrived in New Orleans. Where was Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to stop this? Where are the protests from outraged Americans?

If you stand up against the bullies – whether they’re radical black bullies on campuses, or Islamic bullies, they will go sit down.

But if you act with fear, they will run over you and your children.

You can’t prove anything to angry people. You just have to speak up, be honest and live your life. Telling the truth and setting a living example is the only way to change anything for the better.

The greatest civilizations in the world are being destroyed by the godless.

The godless have not been raised by decent parents. They’re looking for love in all the wrong places, and in the wrong way. And now they’re destroying the free world.

It’s time for whites in America, and in Europe, to stop the madness. If it isn’t stopped, your way of life – and possibly your life itself – will be stopped.

Who does it sound like wrote this? A leader of the Ku Klux Klan who believes in white supremacy?

Nope -- it was by Jesse Lee Peterson, a black conservative, at WorldNetDaily.

If these words had come from the pen of a white KKK leader, he would be universally rejected and condemned. But because it is Peterson saying it, he gets a pass (just like fellow WND columnist Mychal Massie).

Even more laughably, WND -- who's publishing his latest book as well as giving him a weekly column --  is trying to market Peterson as a "civil rights leader." Would any actual "civil rights leader" say such things?

Peterson leads nobody in the civil rights movement; he has no constituency other than white right-wingers who know he says the things that would be too racist for them to say.

Sadly, it seems that being a proxy for white racists is something Peterson actually appears to want to be.

Obama Derangement Syndrome Watch, Supersize WorldNetDaily Edition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Slowly, the truth is being unearthed for the world to see, and this is that Barack Hussein Obama and his Cabinet, past and present, are war criminals of a particularly malevolent order.

In the interest of restoring the republic however, it is imperative that Obama and his sordid pantheon of demons are not allowed to cheerfully pass the torch to the next equally corrupt administration in January 2017. They all must be brought to justice, and in a very public way, whatever the cost.

-- Erik Rush, Oct. 21 WorldNetDaily column

Chaos is on the rise in our cities. And I blame Barack Obama for stoking it. He has opened the gates of hell on America.

There are reasons to destabilize cities. Far left politicians like Obama know that good men and women won’t vote for them. So why not populate cities with those who will help bring their “change”?

Another reason to destabilize a city is to use its debased condition as an excuse to take guns from law-abiding citizens – the main opposition to tyrants.

One of the “best” ways to destabilize a city is to place its police department under federal control. Enter Obama’s 21st Century Policing program, with its goal of body cameras on cops and civilian (i.e.: often troublemaker) review boards.

-- Jesse Lee Peterson, Oct. 25 WND column

ALERT, America! Had this been an actual presidency, your beloved nation would not be in this cleverly and dastardly engineered suicidal downward spiral to hell. Had this been a real presidency, the words and policies emanating from your White House and from most of your elected employees would not sound like rejected nonsense from Alfred E. Neuman too loony to be found in the pages of Mad Magazine.

Had enough real Americans performed their basic “we the people” responsibilities to monitor, guide and prod our elected employees to strictly adhere to their oath to the U.S. Constitution, to remain in touch with common sense, logic and perform but a modicum of professional accountability, we would have never allowed the psychopathic liar in chief and his gang of commie goons to continually run amok with their America-hating “fundamental transformation” of what was at one time the greatest country ever found on earth.

-- Ted Nugent, Nov. 4 WND column

Although average American news viewers remain blissfully ignorant of this, Europeans have been turning out by the thousands in protest of their governments’ intention to throw the doors open wide to innumerable Muslim refugees from regions in which Barack Hussein Obama’s mercenary army (otherwise known as ISIS or Islamic State) and other militant Islamists have made life as they know it untenable.


Regular readers will take it as given that Barack Hussein Obama’s design of inundating America with Muslims is but one component in his grand plan of sabotage, and that he is also doing the bidding of malignant globalist interests that have long wished to see America brought low.

-- Erik Rush, Nov. 11 WND column

Is it a foreign, Third-World dictator who is attacking America's Christian heritage and the American Constitution?

Is it a foreign, Third-World dictator who is defending, supporting and promoting America's sworn enemies?

Is it a foreign, Third-World dictator who is lying to the American people on a daily basis?

Is it a foreign, Third-World dictator who has transgressed the Constitution and behaved badly more than 1,063 times in the last six years?

Finally, is it the American people who have tolerated those who have committed the crimes of a foreign, Third-World dictator in their own country? Why, yes, it is!

"When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them wicked rulers. – John Calvin, Leviticus 26:14-46, Deuteronomy 28:14-68

-- Bradlee Dean, Nov. 12 WND column

Now, in the last couple of weeks President Obama has sent 50 Special-ops troops into Syria! Why? This man should not be trusted with our military! His wrongful decisions on foreign policy has lead to millions being displaced in the Middle East, Christians being virtually wiped out by ISIS, and our soldiers and allies dying without a just cause.

President Obama hasn’t avoided war! He’s set the stage for World War III, and it’s time Americans knows it.

WND and CNS Complain: Obama Didn't Mention Islam In Denouncing Paris Attacks
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Speaking of exploiting the Parris terrorism attacks, WorldNetDaily and are demonstrating how they'll do so: by portraying all Muslims as terrorists.

The first step in that: Attacking President Obama for not immediately blaming Islam in his initial statement condemning the attack.

WND does so forthrightly in a Nov. 13 article by Douglas Ernst in an article headlined "Obama leaves 'Islam' out of Paris terror statement":

All the hallmarks of Islamic terror attacks in Paris, France, on Friday weren’t enough to convince President Obama it would be prudent to use the word “Islam.”


Obama used Friday’s address to condemn the attempt “to terrorize innocent civilians,” but refused to specifically identify the Islamic element of extremist groups.

Ernst did note that Obama's statement was made while the attacks were still going on and that he said "until we know from French officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate." But Ernst attacks him anyway.

At CNS, Susan Jones manages to demonstrate her organization's word-counting obsession and put words (parenthetically) in Obama's mouth while still zinging the president forrefusing to blame all of Islam for the actions of terrorists ina Nov. 14 article:

President Obama, speaking as the attacks in Paris were still ongoing, used the word "terrorist" or "terrorize" seven times, and the word "extremist" once, in his brief remarks on the situation Friday evening.

"I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this," he said. "It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak."

Nevertheless, Obama went on to describe the attacks as a clash of values: "human progress" on one hand (Western values), and a "hateful vision" (radical Islam) on the other:

As is his usual practice, the president never used the words "radical Islam." (On Sept. 10, 2014, when he announced his anti-ISIL strategy, Obama declared, "ISIL is not 'Islamic.'")

Jones probably wouldn't describe Scott Roeder, who murdered abortion doctor George Tiller, as "Christian" despite his claiming to act on Christian principles, so why should she assume that all Muslims approve of ISIS?

WND Quickly Walks Back Claims That Mizzou Racial Incidents Were A Hoax
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Well, that was quick.

In a Nov. 11 WorldNetDaily article, Douglas Ernst was proclaiming that the reports of racial tension at the University of Missouri were all based on "unsubstantiated rumors." To wit:

Perhaps the most egregious claim by students at the University of Missouri involves a story of a swastika made out of human waste. The symbol was allegedly written in a dormitory bathroom Oct. 24. Reporting by the Federalist on Monday indicates there is no evidence such an event ever happened.

Billy Donley, president of Mizzou’s Residence Halls Association, said he did not witness the event. Instead, he read about it “via a flyer posted on the walls,” the website reported.

Donaley would not speak to the Federalist for its story, but two other RHA staffers did. Neither of them said they witnessed the swastika made of human waste. One staffer did not know of any photographic evidence of the alleged incident.

The website also called the University of Missouri Police Department, which investigated claim. Again, no evidence was provided.

Concerned Student 1950 also failed to provided photographic or documentary evidence of the swastika.

Contrast that with Ernst's article the next day, in which he pretends he never accused the swastika story of being a hoax:

It took media pressure and a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the University of Missouri’s custodian of records, but the infamous “poop-swastika” photo and police report were released late Wednesday.

The reaction by school officials to an Oct. 24 incident in the university’s Gateway Hall was used by activists to pressure system’s president Timothy Wolfe to resign. Wolfe stepped down on Monday, but up until late Wednesday the school resisted requests to provide its records.

Concerned Students 1950, the group organizing campus protests, charge that Wolfe and administrators did not adequately respond to the incident. A police report obtained by the Daily Caller and emails released to the Federalist on Thursday challenge that claim.

  • A police report was filed shortly after the incident.
  • The university’s Title IX office was immediately notified.
  • Gateway Hall hall coordinator Susan Cohn contacted multiple school officials.
  • Representatives of the school’s minority communities were informed.
  • Officials held discussions on the best way to respond.
  • The executive director of Mizzou Hillel was contacted.

Officials had an idea who the culprit was, but could not definitively prove he was guilty.

Salama Gallimore, the lead investigator in the university’s Title IX office, wrote Gateway Hall coordinator Susan Cohn about an incident between a Jewish student and a group of minorities just days before the swastika was found.

Note the new framing -- it's suddenly no longer about whether it was a hoax, it's now about whether campus official adequately responded.

At no point does Ernst state that just the day before he was accusing the swastika story of being an "unsubstantiated rumor," and his earlier story proclaiming the purported hoax remains uncorrected.

UPDATE: WND still hasn't corrected Ernst's earlier story; instead, it has added a link to  Ernst's later story proving the swastika story as a "related story."

WND Attacks Mizzou Football Team For Taking A Stand Against Racism
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Race-baiter Colin Flaherty isn't the only one in the ConWeb who feels the need to attack the University of Missouri football team for taking a side on racially charged incidents on campus. WorldNetDaily joins the bashing in an unbylined Nov. 10 article:

It wasn’t the campus radicals who forced the administration at the University of Missouri into defeat.

It was the football team.

But the team’s record off the field has some commentators crying foul. And ostentatiously missing from the hype over the team’s activism over claims of racism on campus are details of the other claims that have erupted.

Claims of sexual assault against team members. And rape.

Within hours of African-American football players at the school declaring they were on strike until the school’s president was booted, both President Tim Wofle and Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin had resigned.

Gary Pinkel, Missouri’s head football coach, supported the strike, which the Kansas City Star tied to Pinkel’s “experiences with civil rights and activism in the past.”

But what is perhaps more relevant is Pinkel’s experience as a coach of a football team with a problematic record regarding sexual assault and violence against women. Several recent investigations allege the University of Missouri has been negligent in handling claims of sexual assault and rape against multiple members of the football team.

WND also trotted out columnist Gina Loudon -- who devoted a column to rationalizing her teenage daughter dating a middle-aged actor -- to complain about thepurported "hypocrisy" of criminal black football players (they appear to be one and the same at WND) making a civil rights stand: “To overlook sexual assault by athletes and turn around and hail them as heroes shows these people are about an agenda and they don’t really care about how flawed that agenda is.”

Both Loudon and Jesse Lee Peterson -- who, as far as we know, have never visited the Mizzou campus -- go on to assert that there are no racial issues there:

“One thing I am 100 percent sure of is that they were not concerned with racial justice because there is no racial problem there,” he said to WND. “The whole thing by black students that they don’t feel protected and they’re not safe – is a lie, it’s an illusion, it’s just a way to manipulate and to put fear into the president of the school and others so they can get rid of them and replace them with people who are going along with them. And they are mostly liberals who are racist against whites and oppose conservative blacks and the Republicans.”

Loudon concurred.

“I don’t buy that there is even a real issue here,” she charged. “I reject the premise that there is a racial situation at hand on Mizzou campus at all. It is created by those who endeavor to use blacks and other minorities."

WND also echoed Flaherty by suggesting that the football team's record disqualifies them from speaking out, noting that "The team is 4-5 on the season and has lost four in a row." At least WND didn't call the team "subliterate," like Flaherty did.

WND Friend Colin Flaherty Smears Mizzou Football Players Who Supported Protest As 'Subliterate'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily may have had to back away from race-baiter extraordinare Colin Flaherty after his "black mob violence" obsession nearly cost it advertising revenue when Google declined to be associated with it, but it still regularly features him on the website. In June, for example, WND played up how YouTube (briefly) suspended Flaherty's video channel, and just last month WND quoted Flaherty opining about Louis Farrahkan.

So WND still has a hand in promoting Flaherty. Meanwhile, Flaherty himself has to resort to even fringier venues to vent his race-baiting rage, like American Thinker.

Which brings us to Flaherty's Nov. 10 American Thinker column on the racially charged situation at the University of Missouri, in which he makes things worse by saying, "A mediocre team of subliterate football players is now running the University of Missouri. Maybe no one will notice the difference."

Yep, he went there -- forwarding the apparent racial smear that if you're black and play football, you can't possibly be that bright.

Of course, one has to have mastered some level of literacy to play football for a major college in in the Southeastern Conference, considered among the most competitive in college football. Mizzou football is ranked third academically in the SEC, and 26 Mizzou football players landed on last fall's SEC Honor Roll.

Flaherty goes on to irrelevantly mock the Mizzou players as a "sub .500 football team," as if their support of the protesters would have more validity if the team had a winning record.

Finally, he twists things around to his favorite obsession:

The real story on and around the Mizzou campus is just the opposite of the fairy tale these Black Lives Matter wannabes would have us believe: Crime and violence in Columbia, Missouri is a big problem -- and it’s a black thing.

Just two weeks ago, a local TV station documented all the violence that exists just off campus -- with dozens of assaults and robberies in the space of just a few months in this small college town.

Some of the assaults were on a hiking and biking trail popular with students. Others episodes of violence were in the downtown area that surrounds the campus.

The reporter did not say what is easily found out in public records at the city police and campus police web sites: the predators are overwhelmingly black. The victims are not.

In the self-made video he claims douments this, he highlights a few random stories of violence near the MU campus, then compains a TV report on the incidents doesn't identify the alleged assilants as black and that MU students are "soft targets" for crimes by blacks. He also rants that "black victimization" is "the greatest lie of our generation."

This is a guy, after all, who thinks white people and dogs can take part in "black mob violence," so it's best not to take any of Flaherty's assertions on the subject at face value.

But Flaherty's branding of black football players who object to racism as "subliterate" gives away what his obsession is all about. Even WND should be able to see that.

WND's Cashill Uses Carson Controversy To Rant About Obama Memoir (Again)
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The current kerfuffle over the veracity of Ben Carson's autobiography has brought Jack Cashill out of the woodwork to rant about (what else) Obama in a special Nov. 6 WorldNetDaily column:

Politico grabbed headlines Friday with the breathtaking revelation that Ben Carson, contrary to what he either said or implied, had not been offered a scholarship to West Point.

The third paragraph contains this eye-opening revelation. “West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission.”

How does this work now? Does a reporter just write off to a college or university for data on a given student, and the university, in this case West Point, coughs up everything it has? Would that this were so.

For years the conservative media have been trying to get word one out of any of Obama’s academic institutions without success. The major media have not bothered to try.

Obama has sealed virtually all of his records for one very good reason. He crafted a persona around a series of foundational lies, the exposure of which could have doomed his candidacy in the womb.

Cashill seems not to grasp the concept that 1) Obama has privacy over his college records just like Cashill and every other American does, and 2) if a person did not attend a particular college, there is no record -- and, thus, no privacy -- to protect, so West Point is free to say Carson never applied there.

Cashill, of course, wasn't content to stop there, going on to rant about "the preposterous notion that Obama was a literary genius, a fraud [biographer David] Maraniss and every other reporter even close to the mainstream left untouched," adding, "As I learned from experience, to question any element of the Obama story was to risk being called a racist, in my case by the likes of Bill Maher and New Yorker editor David Remnick."

Cashill still seems a little butthurt that Remnick, in his book on Obama, "the Bridge," called out Cashill's baseless, never-proven insistence that Obama could not possibly have written "Dreams From My Father" for what it is -- a racially tainted attempt from the right wing's "farthest lunatic orbit" to deny Obama's legitimacy.

For all this ranting, though, Cashill has shown no interest whatsoever into deconstructing Carson's autobiography the way he has Obama's. After all, why shouldn't he suspect Carson's origin story is a fraud just as he insists Obama is?

WND's Kupelian Touts 'Decent, Moral' Carson As He Gets Caught In Lies
Topic: WorldNetDaily

From a Nov. 3 WorldNetDaily article by Paul Bremmer:

Dr. Ben Carson’s rise to the top level of the 2016 Republican presidential field has flummoxed many observers, but author and journalist David Kupelian says he understands the retired neurosurgeon’s appeal: Americans want a good person as president.

“People are hungry to have somebody as a president who is basically a thoroughly decent, moral human being,” Kupelian told hosts Cliff Kincaid and Jerry Kenney in a recent appearance on the Roku television show, “America’s Survival TV.”

Kupelian's praise of Carson as "a thoroughly decent, moral human being" comes, ironically, shortly after Carson falsely denied a relationship with a shady supplements marketer during a Republican debate -- even the conservative National Review called his denials "bald-faced lies" -- and as CNN is finding that claims Carson made in his autobiography aren't holding up, based on interviews with Carson's acquaitances. Another conservative-oriented publication, the Wall Street Journal, has also raised questions about Carson's bio.

The real purpose of Kupelian's praise of Carson, though, is to contrast it with his visceral hatred of President Obama -- and, thus, to promote his new anti-Obama book, "The Snapping of the American Mind," as Bremmer writes:

Kupelian says Americans would trust Carson to assemble “a very good and smart team” around him to help with policy matters if he is elected. But they really want, especially after a disastrously unqualified president like Barack Obama, for the next man in charge to be a decent, smart person who embodies traditional American values.

“They want somebody who has the American, Judeo-Christian sensibilities that Eisenhower and pretty much all the other presidents going back to George Washington had,” Kupelian said.


The fact that so many college students love socialist Bernie Sanders is evidence, said Kupelian, of a broken, traumatized generation. But he made clear he is not the only one who views the young generation as broken. Psychologists have reported a "mental health crisis" among today's college students, with skyrocketing rates of anxiety and depression.

Kupelian has his own ideas about where all this anxiety and depression is coming from.

"It's coming from an insane culture that denies the existence of God, denies the existence of right and wrong, and puts forth a crazy ideology which doesn't add up and violates the laws of economics and God and common sense – and then we have a president who lies constantly, is dishonest ... and that takes its toll. It takes its toll, especially on young people."

How hilarious that Kupelian -- the managing editor of an organization that lies constantly -- is complaining about Obama's purported lies.

Also: The best Kupelian can do to promote his book is appear on a show that appears only on Roku and is hosted by fellow Obama-hater Cliff Kincaid? That's pretty sad.
