Encyclopedia of American Loons: #325: Janet Porter
Janet Porter is another writer for WorldNetDaily and well-known SPAGger. In a 2010 commentary she claimed that America is cursed by God (Deuteronomy 28:12) in order to warn against America borrowing money from other nations (she also lied outright and claimed that - apparently relatedly, though it is not obvious how -the Obama administration planned to institute death panels). The curse apparently visited upon America appears to be budget deficits (which, of course, is the current administration’s fault) - and Obama’s death panels. Fortunately she has also claimed that Americans should use the most effective weapon they have to bring down Obamacare: prayer. That would in fact be her usual strategy; with respect to the case at hand she arranged “May Day: A Cry to God for Our Nation in Distress” (“Porter said Cynthia Dunbar, a lawyer who serves on the Texas State Board of Education, will attend and ask God for forgiveness for how the nation has removed Him from American schools”).
She is also head of Faith2Action; and guess who was behind this one.
Predictably, she is unhingedly anti-gay, and doesn’t care whether she has to lie through her teeth to convince others. Truth is simply not important as long as lying could possible serve to back up her delusional charges. Despite the lunacy of her ravings, she does have some power, and she is - among other things - behind Ohio’s notorious “heartbeat bill” to restore God’s blessings to America (endorsed by both Bachmann and Perry), though there is in fact some evidence that this one may be backfiring.
