Ted Cruz touts endorsement from church founder who claims Oprah is the forerunner of the Antichrist

Published

Surging 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz scored another coup of sorts after his campaign announced the endorsement of the founder of a Kansas City church who previously expressed fears that former talk show host Oprah Winfrey is a forerunner of the return of the Antichrist.

According to Right Wing Watch,  Cruz announced that Mike Bickle, Founder and Director of the International House of Prayer Kansas City, has thrown his support behind the Texas senator.

“Our nation is in a great crisis in this hour,” Bickle said. “We need a president who will first be faithful to honor God’s Word. We need a president who will work to defend religious liberty, uphold our Constitution, keep our country safe and our economy sound, and speak truth to the nation. We have been praying for righteous leaders, and Ted Cruz is such a leader. I am enthusiastically endorsing Ted Cruz.”

Bickle oversees several ministries and a school also bearing the IHOPKC name where students are taught about the word of God along with lessons on what to watch for as the end times approach.

Bickle has stated that gay marriage is “rooted in the depths of hell,” and that homosexuality “opens the door to the demonic realm.” The evangelical pastor has also focused on Winfrey as a forerunner of the Antichrist, saying she is of the “Harlot Movement” that will seduce the masses with “humanitarian projects” and “acts of compassion for all the wrong reasons”

“I believe that one of the main pastors, as a forerunner to the Harlot movement, it’s not the Harlot movement yet, is Oprah. She is winsome, she is kind, she is reasonable, she is utterly deceived, utterly deceived,” Bickle preached. “A classy woman, a cool woman, a charming woman, but has a spirit of deception and she is one of the clear pastors, forerunners to the Harlot movement.”

‘Not a pretty picture’: Second-ranking GOP senator inches closer to impeachment after Bill Taylor testimony

Published

on

The second-ranking Republican senator sounded an alarm over testimony by the former Ukraine ambassador.

GOP Whip John Thune (R-SD) reacted to testimony Tuesday by veteran diplomat Bill Taylor, who told lawmakers that President Donald Trump directed efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden in exchange for congressionally approved military aid.

"The picture coming out based on the reporting we’ve seen is not a good one," Thune told reporters Wednesday, "but I would say until we have a process that allows to see this with full transparency it’s pretty hard to come to hard and fast conclusions."

Published

On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) led a gang of two dozen conservative lawmakers as they barged into a classified evidence meeting in the impeachment proceeding against President Donald Trump.

Gaetz — who is not a member of the Intelligence Committee but has demanded the right to review sensitive evidence as if he is one — received scorn from commenters on social media for his stunt:

This is their plan? I’m so fucking relieved we’re up against Matt Gaetz.

BUSTED: Newly uncovered White House budget docs undercut one of Trump’s last defenses in Ukraine scandal

Published

on

President Donald Trump's insistence that he only pushed Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden because he was concerned about "corruption" has been one of his primary defenses against House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

However, the Washington Post has uncovered some White House budget documents that directly undercut the president's defense.

According to the Post, the Trump administration "has sought repeatedly to cut foreign aid programs tasked with combating corruption in Ukraine and elsewhere overseas" even though the White House has insisted that it is laser-focused on promoting good governance in the country.
