Tim Tebow To Speak At Evangelical University Whose Founder Blamed 9/11 On Gays

Published

on

Tim Tebow is scheduled to speak at Liberty University, an evangelical Christian school founded by the man who blamed 9/11 on gays, the late Jerry Falwell. Liberty University is closely allied with Liberty Counsel, whose top spokesperson, Matt Barber — who is both a Vice President at Liberty Counsel and an Asst. Dean at Liberty University — has called President Barack Obama ”a white-hating, communist, Black Nationalist,” among other things.

Last week, Tim Tebow, author of the book Through My Eyes, flung the radical religious right on its head with the shocking announcement that he was canceling a speaking engagement at Pastor Robert Jeffress‘ Dallas church because of “new information.” Those on the left and right assumed the information was that Pastor Jeffress not only hates gays, but Muslims, Catholics, Jews, and many others.

Apparently not (which leaves the question, what was that “new information”?)

Pastor Jeffress later accused Tebow of “wimping out” by canceling, which earned Jeffress the title “most important man in America.”

Liberty University “was founded by the late televangelist Jerry Falwell — it is now run by his son — who has blamed gays and liberals for the September 11 attacks, supported racist laws in the U.S. and abroad and attacked the Teletubbies for “modeling the gay life style,” Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch reports today:

Liberty University bans gay students and shut down its College Democrats chapterover the party’s views on gay rights. The university has hostedmultipleanti-gayconferences and their law school is being sued over its allegedrole in helping Lisa Millerdisobey a court order and kidnap her daughter to Central America in order to avoid transferring custody to the girl’s other mother, her former partner.

Liberty University’s Vice President and law school dean Mathew Staver has defended the criminalization of homosexuality in Malawi, promoted the dangerous ex-gay therapy and warned that President Obama supports “forced homosexuality.” Furthermore, Staver has claimed that gay rights laws are part of an Antichrist spiritthat lead to crime, child molestation and death, along with the destructionofAmerica.

Last year, when the Matt Drudge-Sean Hannity attempt to smear the President with a video that millions around the world had already seen, here’s what Matt Barber, who describes himself as a “Christ follower, Liberty Counsel attorney, radio host, columnist (WashTimes, TownHall, WND, etc.) talking head, Husband, Father & ex-pro boxer” had to say about it:

Watch: Bill Barr Has Talked to Jan. 6 Committee Says Chairman

Published

on

Bill Barr, the former Attorney General who served as then-President Donald Trump’s top protector, has spoken with the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack.

Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS), asked by CBS News about a bombshell draft executive order directing the Secretary of Defense to seize voting machines after Trump lost the 2020 presidential election, said: “We’ve had conversations with the former attorney general already. We have talked to Department of Defense individuals.”

“We are concerned that our military was part of this big lie on promoting that the election was false,” Thompson said Sunday morning on “Face the Nation.”

“So, if you are using the military to potentially seize voting machines, even though it’s a discussion, the public needs to know. We’ve never had that before.”

The draft memo was never formalized or enacted, and it is unknown who wrote it, but it was part of a massive, hard-fought document collection given to the Jan. 6 Committee by the National Archives after the Supreme Court refused to block its release. Trump tried for months to keep his official White House records from being released.

Trump Instructed Michael Cohen to Make Sure Don Jr. Went to Jail Instead of Ivanka

Published

on

According to a report from Business Insider, Michael Cohen admitted on Saturday that Donald Trump instructed him in 2012 to make sure that Don Trump Jr. be the one to take the fall instead of Ivanka Trump during an investigation by Manhattan’s district attorney into lying about property sales.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Alex Witt, Cohen recalled that the former president was concerned about Ivanka’s well-being if she was sentenced to jail and that Don Jr. would handle it better.

According to the report, Cohen told the MSNBC host, “You may recall that there was the district attorney’s case here for Trump Soho where it was either Don or Ivanka was in very big trouble as a result of lying about the number of units that had been sold.”

“And Donald said it to me – I mean I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t said directly to me – he goes ‘if one or the other has to go to prison, make sure that it’s Don because Don would be able to handle it, ” he continued.

Cohen later said that he doesn’t expect Ivanka to willingly appear before the House committee investigating the Jan 6th insurrection and claimed the first daughter would likely plead the 5th before explaining, “Ivanka is only interested in Ivanka.”

CRIME

Trumps Could ‘Turn on One Another’ as Investigations ‘Go Up the Food Chain’: MSNBC Analyst

Published

on

Former president Donald Trump and his family are facing “existential” threats from ongoing criminal investigations in New York and Georgia, according to MSNBC political analyst and Trump biographer Tim O’Brien.

“I think you’re going to start to see this vice squeeze in,” O’Brien said Saturday. “The Trumps will happily throw underlings under the bus as this gets hotter. I think the question is whether or not the family members will turn on one another as it goes up the food chain.”

“The Manhattan DA’s case has existential consequences to it,” O’Brien added. “Donald Trump and perhaps his children could end up in orange jumpsuits if that case goes the full route. That’s not going to be the case with (New York AG) Letitia James’ prosecution, that’s a civil case. I also think the Georgia case has an existential threat. Donald Trump acting like a 19th-century ward heeler, called up the secretary of state and said find me some votes, and there’s proof of that, there’s evidence.”
