Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

The Southern Poverty Law Center Hates God

In a recent interview, Judge Roy Moore was asked about the Southern Poverty Law Center. He responded, “The Southern Poverty Law Center has had Ben Carson on their hate list. They’ve had Tony Perkins [of the Family Research Council] on their hate list. The truth is: they’re the ones that hate. They hate God, and they hate the acknowledgement of God.”

This should surprise no one who has even briefly looked into the background of the SPLC. It has hated God and His people for decades. When Morris Dees founded the outfit in 1971, he named his good friend Julian Bond as president. Bond, it will be remembered

Citing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the National Center for Life and Liberty of the D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM) filed suit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Tuesday for “trafficking in false or misleading descriptions of the services offered under the ministry’s trademarked name; and for defamation pursuant to Alabama common law arising from the publication and distribution of information that libels the ministry’s reputation and subjects the ministry to disgrace, ridicule, odium, and contempt in the estimation of the public.”

Frank Wright, the CEO of the ministries, explained why it is suing the SPLC:

Pro-life Agenda Boosted With Charmaine Yoest in HHS

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 10, 2017:

Students for Life of America

The Daily Signal, the Heritage Foundation’s daily Web-based newsletter, took a close look Tuesday at President Trump’s recent appointment of Charmaine Yoest as top communicator at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Daily Signal‘s writer, Rachel del Guidice, liked what she found: Yoest is one more example of the paradigm shift taking place in the Trump administration regarding the value of human life from the moment of conception.

Del Guidice interviewed Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, who told her that “we are going to see a radical transformation occur within HHS. I fully expect us [as a society] to talk about … the consequences of abortion on women.”

Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, was equally encouraged:

Julian Bond’s Passing Illustrates the Illegitimacy of the Mainstream Media

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, August 19, 2015:  

Except for the Internet, Julian Bond’s passing would be celebrated by the mainstream media as a life well-lived, full of accomplishment and good deeds in an evil and declining world. Words like “hero,” “friend,” and “champion” would forever be tied to his name and his life. Eulogies from Al Sharpton would remain unchallenged:

Rep. Tim Scott to replace Senator Jim DeMint in January

When South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced on Monday that she would appoint Rep. Tim Scott to replace Senate Jim DeMint in the upcoming 113th Congress, she was full of praise for his voting record in the House and enthusiastic about his future in the Senate:

It is with great pleasure that I am announcing our next U.S. senator to be Congressman Tim Scott. I am strongly convinced that the entire state understands that this is the right U.S. senator for our state and our country.

Her announcement had nothing to do with him being the only black senator in the 113th Congress or the first black senator from the south since Reconstruction.

What Media Bias?

Brent Bozell: Skipping Over the Shooting at FRC

Imagine a volunteer for the Family Research Council marching into some gay group’s headquarters with a gun, and after shouting his opposition to the homosexual agenda, open[s] fire and wound[s] a guard before being subdued. Never mind evening news. This would be breaking news! And for days there would be seemingly endless coverage of continued conservative hatred.

Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

You know from the moment you see it where this article from Brent Bozell is going: the media only reports what it, in its slanted and biased worldview, is worth reporting.

The shooter in Aurora called forth—and still does—endless reams of coverage and the predictable responses about the need for gun control. The Sikh shooting added to the fray and raised the noise to nearly unbearable levels.

But the Family Research Council shooting? Please. As Bozell notes:

Another hate crime, but this time against, perhaps, the pre-eminent pro-family organization in America. CBS gave the story 20 seconds. NBC spent 17 seconds.

The incident didn’t have any of the media’s checkpoints: the attacker was queer—oops, sorry, “gay,”—the group is conservative, its agenda is highly regarded in favorable light by a majority of the American people, the guard was armed (oh no!) and was able to stop the attack and the attacker before things got really ugly. You get the idea. There was nothing there to hang their collective (I use that word deliberately) hats on. So they ignored it.

Instead, they went on about their business of emphasizing things that fit:

One can easily imagine how the national media elite justify their decision to spike the story: No one was killed or in danger of dying. There are dozens of shootings a day in the D.C. area; this is just one more. We have more important things to cover.

Both CBS and NBC spent more than two minutes promoting team Obama’s “DREAM Act” amnesty for students. NBC devoted two minutes and 45 seconds to a Chelsea Clinton story on orphaned baby elephants in Africa.

Just another example of media bias, as if another one is needed.

Family Research Council: Individual Mandate Unconstitutional, Thus Whole Law

English: cartoon version of an ambulance

On Monday the Family Research Council (FRC) filed a “friend of the court” (amicus curiae) brief with the Supreme Court that makes its case that if the mandate forcing citizens to purchase health insurance or pay a penalty is ruled unconstitutional, then the entire 2,700-page Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care law should be thrown out as well.

The brief, co-authored by two attorneys, Ken Klukowski and Nelson Lund, called the hotly contested mandate the “linchpin” for the entire law and if it fails, the whole massive superstructure fails with it. Klukowski stated:

After almost two years of impassioned debate, Obamacare will finally have its day before the Supreme Court. The “individual mandate” in Obamacare that requires all Americans to have health insurance is unconstitutional. And for the reasons we explain in this brief, 135 years of Supreme Court precedent show that this is one of those rare instances where striking down the individual-mandate provision requires the Court to strike down this entire 2,700-page law.

We have high hopes that the Supreme Court will recognize that the individual mandate is unconstitutional, and will act to safeguard the freedoms of all Americans by holding the individual mandate “nonseverable,” and strike down every part of Obamacare.

There is no “severability” clause in ObamaCare—it was deliberately left out during negotiations between the House and the Senate—which means that if part of the law is deemed unconstitutional,

Who is Mike Pence?

In an early straw poll, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) was the choice for presidential nominee in 2012 over such conservative luminaries as Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, and Mitt Romney. Capturing 24 percent of those voting at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit this past weekend in Washington, DC, Pence relegated even Senator Jim DeMint to a barely visible 5 percent.

“Mount Vernon Statement”—A Warning

Official seal of Young Americans for Freedom.

The “Mount Vernon Statement” to be announced today at the start of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. is a “broad statement of principle aimed at giving a coherent framework” to the Tea Party and other activist movements on the right.

It also sounds eerily familiar.
