Michele Bachmann: Thanks Obama For Bringing On The Apocalypse

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed a mixture of condemnation and appreciation toward President Barack Obama for, in her words, bringing the world to end times.

“We need to cry out to a Holy God,” Bachmann said on Jan Markell’s “Understanding the Times” radio show over the weekend. “This is coming faster than anyone can see.”

“Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon,” she said. “Why? Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of madmen who are Islamic radicals?”

Bachmann, however, then seemed to approve of the President moving mankind into “the midnight hour.”

“We get to be living in the most exciting time in history,” she said, urging fellow Christians to “rejoice.”

“Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus Christ returning to Earth, the Rapture of the Church.”

“These are wonderful times,” she concluded.

Bachmann made similar remarks on Markell’s show last week.

“We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
