Republican Michele Bachmann claims she is consulting with God on a possible run for Al Franken’s Senate seat.
The former Minnesota congresswoman told End Times televangelist Jim Bakker that she has asked God if she should run for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by Al Franken.
Speaking on Bakker’s show over the holiday weekend Bachmann said:
I’ve had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat, and the only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate. The question is, should it be me? Should it be now?
Indicating that God would provide an answer, Bachmann added:
So the question is, am I being called to do this now?
Answering her own question Bachmann said:
I don’t know.
But there’s also a price you pay. And the price is bigger than ever because the swamp is so toxic.
If you’re going against the tide in D.C., if you’re trying to stand for biblical principles, and you stick your head up, the blades come whirring and they try to chop you off.
Bachmann told Bakker “I trust in a big God,” while claiming that she “was supposed to run for president” in 2012, declaring:
I feel like I was wildly successful … I didn’t win, but I moved the debate. So I didn’t shed a tear when I left the contest because I felt like, you know, I fulfilled the calling that God gave me.
The former congresswoman is a controversial politician, and a dangerous Christian extremist. In the past Bachmann has:
- argued that immigrants should be indoctrinated into “America’s predominant Christian religion;”
- attributed the United States’ success to the Ten Commandments while claiming that U.S. lawmakers stand “under the authority” of the ancient biblical figure Moses;
- claimed that gays promote child rape, and pedophilia;
- claimed that God uses terrorist attacks to humiliate President Barack Obama.
If she decides to run, Bachmann will most likely face Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith (D) in a special Senate election scheduled for November. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) appointed Smith to the Senate seat being left vacant by Franken, who resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
Bottom line: Bachmann is a dangerous and deranged Christian extremist; and, if God gives her a sign, she will run for U.S. Senate in 2018.
