Wanna-be movie star behind Ohio’s ‘heartbeat bill’ once deemed too kooky for Christian radio

Published

on

The anti-abortion extremist behind Ohio’s “heartbeat bill” was booted from religious radio for promoting “dominion” theology — or the belief that Christians should take over every aspect of society to bring the return of Christ.

Janet Porter, the former legislative director for Ohio Right to Life and the founder of the far-right group Faith2Action, has for five years urged Republican lawmakers in her home state to pass the bill outlawing abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, reported Right Wing Watch.

That usually happens at about six weeks, which is before many women even realize they’re pregnant.

Porter’s bill — which does not include exceptions for rape, incest or the mother’s health — was inserted into a child-abuse bill at the last minute and is now awaiting Gov. John Kasich’s signature.

She used her “Faith2Action” radio program to promote conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama’s birth and alleged ties to Russia, and she warned the president planned to round up Christians into internment camps and deny conservatives treatment under the Affordable Care Act.

Porter was removed from the conservative VCY America radio network for advocating for Seven Mountains dominionism, an extremist fringe view that right-wing Christians are called by God to impose their rule over government and society to hasten the Second Coming.

She later claimed she didn’t even know what dominion theology was until the program was canceled, but admitted she and like-minded religious activists “just want to obey God in every area of influence and use our freedom to spread the Gospel.”

Porter, who launched the ill-fated “Reaganbook” conservative social media site, has also released two self-produced films promoting her anti-abortion views.

She released the 2015 film “Light Wins,” featuring cameos from anti-abortion lawmakers and activists, that claimed religious freedoms and American children were under attack by LGBT people.

Porter stars as herself in a semi-autobiographical romantic comedy, “What’s A Girl To Do?” — featuring Stephen Baldwin, Mike Huckabee and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) — about her efforts to pass a “partial birth” abortion ban.

She said she persuaded King at the funeral of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly to introduce a federal version of the heartbeat bill.

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

on

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
