Pence slams Joy Behar, ABC News over ‘religious intolerance’

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a jaw-dropping rebuke of ABC News after “The View” host Joy Behar compared Christianity to mental illness. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said Wednesday on C-SPAN. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.” Behar’s anti-Christian remarks were in response to a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman, the reality television star turned White House staffer turned reality television star. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence — everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Omarosa said in a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother.” “I am Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” Omarosa told her fellow contestants. Well, that bit of news was more than Behar and the other gals on “The View” could stomach. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar declared. Pence said on C-SPAN that his faith is the most important thing in his life. “My faith sustains me in all that I do,” he said. The vice president said “The View” hosts insulted the “vast majority of the American people who cherish faith.” “It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he said. Well, if hearing the voice of God means that a Christian is mentally insane – then add my name to that list. Because – just like Vice President Pence — I too — have heard the voice of God. And I suspect many faithful followers of Jesus have heard His voice — including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Does Behar believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was mentally insane, too? Later on Tuesday’s program, Behar backtracked slightly — but held firm to her belief that listening to Jesus is odd behavior. “I think Mike Pence, say what you want about him and his religiosity. I don’t think he’s mentally ill. Even though he is saying he hears voices I don’t think he’s that crazy,” she said. Oh, she only thinks Christians are just a little crazy. Whatever. If ABC News wants to employ an anti-Christian bigot — that is their business. It’s a free country. But let’s be honest — had Joy Behar said about gay people what she said about Christians — she would’ve been fired on the spot and hauled out of the studio on live television.

Agreed, Todd.  Veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes is responsible for that piece.  Todd, of course, is exactly right.  Joy Behar is a nauseating, extreme liberal blow hard.  And, if you listen to her talk, she’s stunningly stupid.  She just spouts whatever liberal talking points the DNC, or other Democratic party organ, feeds her, and really has no command of the issues or the nuances of policies, etc.  And, she goes into these silly, ad hominem personal attacks on various random Republicans because…well, they’re Republicans.  That’s it.  If you’re a Republican, she hates you and is very open about it.  She won’t listen to you or consider a viewpoint that isn’t in line with what her approved, Democrat party talking points consider acceptable.  And, in fact, she’ll shout you down and belittle you and your viewpoints if they are conservative or Republican in nature.  Have ya ever noticed how much turn over there is in the one Republican position on The View over the years?

Officials: Mike Pence Did Not Snub North Koreans Seated Nearby at Olympics Opening Ceremony

Officials traveling with Vice President Mike Pence during his trip to the Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies pushed back on reports that Pence snubbed the North Koreans and that he knowingly chose to accept a seat in South Korea’s box in which North Korean representatives were also seated. Earlier on Friday, Pence and second lady Karen Pence met with North Korean defectors at the Cheonan Memorial, which is located outside of Seoul, South Korea. The Pences were joined by Otto Warmbier’s father, Fred Warmbier. Pence told the defectors that he was “very grateful for [their] presence and very grateful for [their] courage.” He added that he “wanted the honor of meeting with the men and women who fled the tyranny of North Korea.” Pence told the defectors that it was important that the truth about North Korea is known during the Olympic Games. The Vice President held a press gaggle outside of the memorial during which he was asked whether his message on North Korea was being overshadowed by Olympic fever or Kim Jonh-un’s sister’s presence there. Pence responded that President Donald Trump sent him there to “reaffirm the strong relationship between the United States, Japan, and South Korea.” He then added that the President also sent him to South Korea to: Make sure that as north Korea engages in what prime minister Abe rightly called a “charm offensive” around the Olympics. A charm offensive that they’ve have done before at the Olympics in 2000, 2004 and 2006 – which as I mentioned earlier this week – it would just be a matter of eight months after the 2006 winter Olympics that North Korea tested their first nuclear bomb. Pence also told the press that the night prior, he and South Korean President Moon Jae-in “reaffirmed our commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” He added that Moon repeated a message in private that Moon has spoken in public, “that South Korea stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States and our allies in continuing to isolate North Korea economically and diplomatically.” During a pre-Olympics Opening ceremonies reception in Pyeongchang later that day, Pence “did not come across” the North Korean delegation, according to a spokesman for the Vice President. The North Koreans were present at the reception at the same time as Pence. Vice President Pence and second lady Karen Pence sat in South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s box for the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games. They sat in the same row as President Moon and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The three had held a meeting ahead of the ceremony. Both Kim Yong Nam and Kim Jong-un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, also sat in Moon’s box. A White House official indicated that it was fair to cast the lack of interaction between Pence and the North Koreans in Moon’s box as mutual. White House officials clarified for the press that it was known ahead of time that the North Koreans would also be seated in Moon’s box, and Pence knowingly chose to sit in Moon’s box instead of in the U.S. delegation box. White House officials told the press: We wanted to show the alliance seated together. We wanted the North Koreans to see the vice president, Abe and Moon sitting directly in front of them for the Opening Ceremonies, and it would show that that alliance is strong. At any moment, he could have gotten up and left and sat somewhere else, and then you would have had the imagine of North sitting in the box with South Korea and Japan. But he stayed there the entire time. Pence sat in front row and talked to Moon and Abe and their spouses, and the North Koreans sat in the back and didn’t talk to anybody, and that image is telling,” the officials said. The North Koreans had met with Abe at the earlier reception and with Moon. “I just don’t think you talk geopolitics over speed skating. He’s been very clear what his message is. Fred Warmbier attended the ceremony as Pence’s guest, but in the U.S. delegation box. The North and South Korean Olympic athletes entered the ceremony together under a united flag. White House officials speaking with the press after the evening’s Opening Ceremony pushed back on reports in the South Korean media that Pence had snubbed the North Koreans.

Starnes: Pence Leaves NFL Game After Players Take Knee During National Anthem

On Sunday, Vice President and American Patriot Mike Pence walked out of the Indianapolis Colts game against the San Franciscio 49ers after several players took a knee during the national anthem. “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” the vice president wrote on Twitter. I reckon the vice president (like many professional football fans) finally got tired of tolerating the boorish behavior of a bunch of intolerant, unAmerican malcontents. “At at time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us,” he added. The Indianapolis Star reports no Colts players disrespected the national anthem, but several 49ers did. “While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem,” he wrote. God bless you, Vice President Pence for standing up and doing the right thing. We can only hope that more patriotic Americans will follow the vice president’s lead and turn off the National Football League.

Exactly!!  Thanks to culter warrior Todd Starnes for this spot-on on/ed.  And, thank you to VP Mike Pence for taking a principled stand against these loser NFL players who take a knee, or lock arms during the playing of our National Anthem.  What a bunch of self-righteous, arrogant, disrespectful, nauseating tools.  We’re all SO over it!

VP Pence calls on U.N. Security Council to end bias against Israel

Vice President Mike Pence called on the United Nations to end its “forum for anti-Semitism” against Israel and to boot repressive countries off the U.N. Human Rights Council. In a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, Mr. Pence noted that former President John F. Kennedy had warned the world body 50 years ago not to become a “forum for invective.” “Yet today, its Human Rights Council has become exactly that — a forum for anti-Semitism and invective against Israel,” Mr. Pence said. “We call on the Security Council and this entire body to immediately reform the membership and practices of the Human Rights Council — and end the Human Rights Council’s blatant bias against our cherished ally, Israel.” Mr. Pence said the Human Rights Council, which includes countries such as Cuba and Venezuela, has approved more than 70 resolutions condemning Israel “while largely ignoring the world’s worst human rights abusers.” “Cuba sits on the Human Rights Council — an oppressive regime that has repressed its people and jailed political opponents for more than half a century,” Mr. Pence said. “Venezuela sits on the Human Rights Council, a dictatorship that undermines democracy at every turn, imprisons its political opponents.” He said the U.N. “must reform the Council’s membership and its operation.” On Tuesday, President Trump called the Human Rights Council “a massive source of embarrassment.” “The truth is, the Human Rights Council doesn’t deserve its name,” Mr. Pence said.

Exactly!!  And, well said Mr. Vice President!!  It’s refreshing to see the U.S. really stick it to the UN, and call it on it’s brazen antisemitism.  To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.

VP Pence says ISIS is guilty of genocide against Christians

The Trump administration is raising alarms about the Islamic State committing genocide against Christians, a conclusion that President Obama’s team reached reluctantly only last year. In a speech Thursday that didn’t receive much press attention in Washington, Vice President Mike Pence told the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians that atrocities are being committed against Christians across the Middle East, from Egypt to Syria to Iraq. “The practitioners of terror harbor a special hatred for the followers of Christ, and none more so than the barbarians known as ISIS,” Mr. Pence said. “That brutal regime shows a savagery, frankly, unseen in the Middle East since the Middle Ages. And I believe ISIS is guilty of nothing short of genocide against people of the Christian faith, and it is time the world called it by name.” The vice president also said President Trump won’t stand for the persecution of Christians. “He’s made it clear that America will stand by followers of Christ in this hour of need,” Mr. Pence said. “Our administration is fully committed in bringing relief and comfort to believers not only across the Middle East but across the world. This president knows the terrorists will not stop until we stop them. And under President Donald Trump, we will stop them.” In his first speech to the U.S. Central Command, in February, Mr. Trump said the Islamic State “is on a campaign of genocide.” The president decided this week to send arms to Syrian Kurds fighting the extremist group, as U.S.-backed Iraqi forces continue to wage a battle against the Islamic State around Mosul. Last year, after the House passed a measure requiring the State Department to make a determination by a deadline, then-Secretary of State John F. Kerry said the Islamic State was guilty of genocide against various groups in territories under its control. Mr. Pence said the Christian faith “is under siege” around the world. “Throughout the world, no people of faith today face greater hostility or hatred than the followers of Christ,” he said. “In more than 100 countries spread to every corner of the globe — from Iran to Eritrea, Nigeria to North Korea — over 215 million Christians confront intimidation, imprisonment, forced conversion, abuse, assault, or worse, for holding to the truths of the Gospel.” The vice president said Mr. Trump “sees these crimes for what they are: vile acts of persecution animated by hatred — hatred for the Gospel of Christ.” He said Mr. Trump also knows who is committing the crimes. “He calls them by name — radical Islamic terrorists,” Mr. Pence said to applause. “From al Qaeda to al Shabaab, from Boko Haram to the Taliban, these extremist groups seek to stamp out all religions that are not their own, or even a version of their own that they approve. And believers from every background have suffered grievously at their hands.”

Agreed…  Thank God we have a President and VP who are willing to actually call out these animals for who and what they are.  Our last President was too weak to call it for what it was….probably because deep down that limp-wristed, metrosexual, agenda-driven, man-child realized he was largely to blame for the creation of ISIS, which has committed these unspeakable atrocities against Christians in Iraq, Syria, Libya..and elsewhere.

Gov. Mike Pence rebukes Hillary Clinton for her ‘deplorable’ slam of Trump voters

GOP vice presidential candidate Mike Pence said Saturday that Hillary Clinton disrespected millions of hard-working Americans when she described a broad swath of Donald Trump’s supporters as “irredeemable,” arguing that it is more proof the Democrat is unfit to be the 45th president of the United States. “Hillary Clinton’s low opinion of the people that support this campaign should be denounced in the most strongest terms,” Mr. Pence said at the Values Voters Summit here in Washington. “No one with a record of failure at home and abroad, no one with her avalanche of dishonesty and corruption and no one with that low opinion of the American people should ever be elected president of the United States of America,” Mr. Pence said. “We must decide here and now that Hillary Clinton will never be president. Mr. Pence’s appearance here came less than 24 hours after Mrs. Clinton was asked at a fundraising event in New York to weigh in on Mr. Trump’s popularity. “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’ Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it,” she said. Mrs. Clinton said some of those people are “irredeemable” and said the other half of Mr. Trump’s supporters “feel that government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures.” On Saturday, Mr. Pence countered that Mr. Trump’s base of support is comprised of hard-working Americans, including farmers, coal miners and military veterans. “So let me just say from the bottom of my heart,” he said. “Hillary they are not a basket of anything. They are Americans and they deserve respect.” For those that had yet to catch Mrs. Clinton’s comments, the emcee of the summit, Gil Mertz, played a video snippet from the fundraiser on a big screen for the audience after Mr. Pence’s address. “I hated to do that to you right before lunch,” Mr. Mertz said. “Anyway we will be hearing more about that. That is going to be a powerful moment that is going massively viral.”

Indeed..  That was a stunningly stupid thing for Hillary to say.  But, hey..  We hope she continues to put her elitist, expensive shoes in her mouth.
