Why Mariia Butina wasn’t the only Russian targeting the National Prayer Breakfast

WASHINGTON (RNS) — A new Department of Justice affidavit alleges that a Russian national tried to exploit the National Prayer Breakfast as a back channel to American politicians. Evidence suggests Russian connections to the religious event run deep.

The March/April issue of Skeptical Inquirer features rather unsettling research by University of Denver scholars Charles S. Reichardt and Ian A. Saari, showing that for those who believe the Bible is the word of God, higher education can actually hinder the acceptance of scientific fact. The more educated Bible believers are, the more likely they … …read more

  • Radical anti-choice activist Randall Terry will be holding protests in West Virginia aimed at pressuring Sen. Joe Manchin to vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because “as a pro-life Christian, Mr. Manchin has an obligation to God and the innocent babies to confirm a man who might be the deciding vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade.”
  • Right-wing pastor Paul Begley says that those who “stalk” him in an effort to discredit him (presumably, he means us) will never succeed “because you can’t come against righteousness and win.”
  • Are you seeking “a gun-friendly healthcare professional … who [will] respect the Second Amendment”? Well, Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership has you covered.
  • Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein declares that he would “probably trust Vladimir Putin and Russia more than [he] would trust the top brass … of our intelligence community.”
  • Finally, Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire dedicated his entire “Pass The Salt Live” webcast yesterday to praising the actions of a radical anti-abortion activist who spent seven years in prison for burning down two women’s health clinics and attempting to bomb another.

In light of the current abortion situation in the U.S., a rising chorus of leading Evangelical women called the Senate to stop its rush to confirm a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court and put a “Pause on the Culture Wars”.

Right-wing commentator Ann Coulter, the conservative firebrand with white nationalist ties, said yesterday that she believed “it’s time to disband the FBI.”

Yesterday, Coulter called in for one of her regular slots with Boston radio host Howie Carr, whose show is syndicated by Newsmax TV. During Coulter’s guest slot, Carr brought up the fact that Coulter’s father was an FBI agent, and asked whether it was discouraged for FBI agents to “get themselves into potentially blackmailable situations.” Carr’s rhetorical question, of course, was a set-up for bringing up the fact that FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page—who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling—had an extramarital affair. A hostile question to Strzok about the affair from Rep. Louie Gohmert during a recent hearing before the House Judiciary Committee lit up the internet last week.

“Why was there no investigation of Strzok? Strzok just got promoted up through the ranks because he was such a rabid Democrat, even though he was violating every rule in the book,” Carr said.

Coulter responded, “It’s time to disband the FBI. This is not J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, which was so good that liberals are still hysterical …read more

Right-wing news outlets Breitbart and Drudge Report were briefly offline yesterday due to a Google Cloud service outage that affected numerous other websites—including Snapchat, Pokemon Go and Spotify—but to Infowars host Owen Shroyer, the brief service outage was proof that an “internet kill switch” exists that the deep state will use to cover up its allegedly planned assassination of President Trump.

Last night, Shroyer went live to talk about this development (after a few drinks with some members of CRTV host Gavin McInnes’ “Proud Boys” hate group) to claim that the service outage was actually an “internet kill-switch test.” Shroyer’s warning is the latest installment in Infowars’ incessant paranoia that the website will be completely eradicated from the internet, which Alex Jones and other hosts stoke to sell products in the Infowars web store.

“It’s not to see if they can shut down the internet. They really couldn’t care less. They’re fine with the internet operating. They can manipulate it. Most people don’t give a damn, anyway, and most people just go on the internet to look at porn,” Shroyer said. “But, if they can assassinate a president and then in the immediate aftermath—say, …read more

End Times broadcaster and radical conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles used his “TruNews” television program last night to warn that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had signaled that a violent coup will take place within the next 72 hours during which President Trump and his family will be dragged out of the White House and beheaded.

After ranting that the prominence of people like Maddow and CNN’s Anderson Cooper on television is evidence that America has been “homosexualized” and is “no longer a Christian nation,” Wiles declared that a recent segment in which Maddow argued that this nation must begin to prepare for “the worst case scenario that Trump is compromised by Russia” was really a signal that a leftist revolution is imminent.

“She was spewing out, last night, calls for revolution,” Wiles said. “She was telling the left, ‘Take a deep breath, we’re at the moment, it’s coming, we’re almost there, we’re going to remove him from the White House.’”

“We’re about 72 hours—possibly 72 hours—from a coup,” Wiles warned. “Be prepared that you’re going to turn on the television and see helicopters hovering over the roof of the White House with men clad in black repelling down ropes, entering into the …read more
