President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, US taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including Al Qaeda.”
Bachmann said that the Al Qaeda funding (which isn’t happening) is a sign of the End Times: “This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history.”
“Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”

“I think here we could be on the cusp of seeing some civil disobedience. I’m not saying I want civil disobedience, but people aren’t going to take the thuggery of this president much longer, and that’s part of what we’re trying to do as the people’s voice in the House of Representatives. Give voice to the fact that we see thuggery going on in the White House. We’re not going to take it, we’ve drawn a line in the sand, and we’re telling the president you need to recognize this isn’t just about Article II, the President of the United States. This is also about Article I, the Congress of the United States, and you’ve gotta recognize, you are a co-equal branch of government. You are not a dicatator.”

Speaking on a conference call with conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries and TheTeaParty.net, Bachmann estimated that she's been lampooned on SNL six or seven times. She assured that she has a "good sense of humor" and never takes the sketches "personally."
The SNL parody reworked the lyrics to Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" around the government shutdown, with Cyrus and cast member Taran Killam impersonating Bachmann and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Bachmann said after the show aired, she received calls in her office from people who believed it was her appearing in the video.
“I will tell you, as a 57-year-old woman, it’s been a long time since I’ve been confused for a 20-year-old,” Bachmann said. “I’ve never done twerking in my life and I don’t intend to take it up.”
Michele Bachmann's Bible is actually just Revelation, Golden Calf & 2 lines of Leviticus duct-taped to a Left Behind book.

When ppl like Bachmann publicly cheer the "arrival" of end of times, how is that different than al Qaeda cheering for suicide bombing?

The fact that Michele Bachmann is on TV shows Republicans are in complete WTF mode.— LOLGOP (@LOLGOP) October 4, 2013
But now times have and a faction of . . . (the House has) shifted into Bachmann-Gohmert Overdrive and are threatening to burn the whole country down in order to save it at the behest of the Tea Partiers who figure they have enough bullets, bibles, and cans of Vienna sausages to ride out the Fiscal End Times when either Jesus or Sarah Palin returns.

So it's the best of all possible news, America: it's the apocalypse! Praise the secret Muslim Barack Obama for unleashing it!

LOL, the loon is my state bird. Both on the water, lovely and haunting in their cries, and on land via Bachmann, screechy, nutsy, and equally haunting in different ways.

I hope she's right. May all the Christian Tea Party be swept off this planet in one instant and may it happen soon. Those of us who will not be going (See the Left Behind series) will roll up our sleeves and get to work greening the world, working to make it a more peaceful place and cooperating around the globe to feed all of the people all of the time.
We know how much you hate us for wanting to do that and would do anything to stop such wide-eyed loving generosity, which actually can be profitable for all, not just one group. As soon as God takes you wherever you're going, life on Earth will have a chance again.

Personally, I can't wait for the Rapture to take her and all the cuckoobirds away. Praise God!

Well, it is the end of the GOP. Is that what she means?

From the woman who thinks we should sell Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite, to pay off the debt and do away with the ACA. Need I say more?

She's not running again. She's got her Swiss citizenship and I'm sure she already bought her airline ticket to Geneva. Just before the Feds pick her up, she'll split.

I didn't know that we were arming Congressional Republicans now. That is something I'm totally against.
There have always been crazy people trying to hasten the Second Coming but those people in history were quickly seen and marginalized. In today's world, they become elected Republicans to Congress and actively work to destroy society so they can show everyone the world's demise.
