Reality TV star Josh Duggar warns conservative Christians of Obama’s gay-friendly agenda

Published

During a speech at the 2014 Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, former reality television star and current executive director of the Family Research Council’s legislative affiliate Josh Duggar said that attendees need to be as courageous in the face of President Barack Obama’s agenda as the Benham brothers were when HGTV cancelled their reality show.

Duggar opened his speech on Saturday by making light of missionary work, saying “I had a friend who went and lived among headhunters and cannibals, and so I prayed to the Lord, ‘Please don’t send me among headhunters and cannibals.’ So He sent me to Washington.”

“The Lord has opportunities for those of us of our generation,” the 26-year-old Duggar said, before listing off a series of conservative positions to thunderous applause.

“What we’re seeing here today,” he continued, “as we’re looking at the discussion for 2016, our work is clear — our mission is before us. We have an administration that has taken a direct assault on us. This is not just about a disagreement. This is not just saying, ‘This is our opinion, here’s your opinion, let’s have a discussion.'”

“This is about an agenda against people of Christian faith, to not allow us the room to speak or even believe what we know to be right,” Duggar said. “When you talk about the issue of life, marriage, or religious liberty, I submit to you that every issue is moral.”

“It’s even wrong to tax people at a massive percentage of what they earn,” he said. “It’s wrong to force businesses to buy a good or a service that they don’t want or need. We have a Christian and moral obligation to be involved in this process.”

He then introduced the Benham brothers, Jason and David, whose show with HGTV was cancelled after controversial comments about same-sex marriage and Nazi Germany came to light. Duggar characterized the reason for the show’s cancellation as “their Christian beliefs,” then admired their “courage” in the face of the cancellation.

“We must be that courageous,” he concluded, “because courage breeds courage.”

Duggar, who was featured on TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, was hired by the Family Research Council’s FRC Action outreach group last year.

Seth Meyers: You know Trump isn’t the chief law enforcement officer because he couldn’t pass the physical

Published

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers warned that the United States is sliding into authoritarianism under President Donald Trump.

Sounding the alarm Wednesday evening, Meyers cited reports that Trump was making lists of disloyal people, purging them from their jobs, hiring unqualified cronies in top posts, and claiming he has the right to interfere in criminal cases.

While speaking to the press last week, Trump even announced that he's allowed to be involved in all criminal cases because he's the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It's actually a title used for the attorney general.

Conservative columnist nails the infectious diseases the Trump White House is suffering from

Published

on

On Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot revealed the "diseases" at the heart of President Donald Trump's administration that are weakening their capacity to respond to the very real disease threat from coronavirus.

Simply put: Fevered nationalism, hatred of the civil service, and a pathological desire to erase the legacy of President Barack Obama.

"Covid-19 has already infected more than 80,000 people in 37 countries, causing more than 2,600 deaths, and experts doubt it will slow in the spring," wrote Boot. "That a virus that started in China could have a bad impact on the United States should be no surprise: Diseases don’t respect borders any more than terrorists or trade flows do. Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China."

President Donald Trump apparently left Secretary Alex Azar out of the loop on Vice President Mike Pence taking over the coronavirus response.

According to the Washington Post, Azar was "blindsided" by the decision, according to five people familiar with the incident. Azar learned about it moments before the press conference this afternoon.

Pence said that he would run a task force at the Department of Health and Human Services, which Azar is in charge of.
