The folks who make Doritos and Cheetos are jumping into bed with gay activist Dan Savage.

Frito-Lay announced they are launching a new product — rainbow colored Doritos.

They say proceeds will fund It Gets Better a non-profit started by Mr. Savage – a vulgar, anti-Christian BULLY.

By radio rules I’m not even allowed to repeat some of the disgusting words he’s called people of faith.

Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he is shocked that Frito-Lay would associate themselves with a hate group.

It appears that Frito-Lay would rather do business with the likes of Dan Savage than America’s good, church-going people.

It’s not my business what kind of corn chip you chow.

But as for me and my house, I can promise you this, not a single Frito. Not a single Cheeto.

Until Frito-Lay stops giving money to a bunch of godless sickos who bash Christians.

Federal prisoner Kim Davis walked into the Kentucky jail cell
wearing an orange jumpsuit and holding a Bible.

“When I went back into that holding cell I hit my knees and just
prayed, just cried out for God to give me some peace and assurance that all was
going to be well – and I prayed and I sang,” she told me in her first digital
interview.

It was September 3 – the day Mrs. Davis became the first Christian
jailed as a result of the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage.

Federal Judge David Bunning ordered her jailed for contempt of
court after she defied a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to gay
couples. He denied her request to accommodate her religious beliefs by simply
removing her name from the marriage form.

“That’s all I ever asked for,” she said. “I didn’t ask for them to
jump over the moon and give me the stars and pull the sun down for me. I asked
a very simple and doable accommodation.”

Mrs. Davis, the clerk in Rowan County, was released five days
later after she agreed that she would not interfere with deputies who were
issuing licenses to gay couples.

Bunning said he was “satisfied that the Rowan County Clerk’s
Office is fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses to all legally
eligible couples.”

However, the American Civil Liberties Union representing four
Kentucky couples contends that Mrs. Davis has altered marriage licenses — making
them possibly invalid. And they want her held in contempt – again.

The validity of the licenses is “questionable at best,” ACLU
attorneys told the Washington Post. “What’s more, the adulterated marriage
licenses received by Rowan County couples will effectively feature a stamp of
animus against the LGBT community, signaling that, in Rowan County, the
government’s position is that LGBT couples are second-class citizens unworthy
of official recognition and authorization of their marriage license but for
this Court’s intervention and order.”

Mat Staver, of the Liberty Counsel law firm, is Mrs. Davis’
attorney. He said the ACLU’s allegations have no merit.

“They want her scalp to hang on the wall as a trophy,” he said.

Mrs. Davis is a follower of the Apostolic Christian faith and a
devoutly religious woman. She is uncomfortable in the public spotlight.

“I’ve been called Hitler, a homophobe, a hypocrite — words I
didn’t even use when I was in the world — words that are very vile and nasty,”
she said. “I’ve been called pretty much anything that you can think in your
mind.”

But the words did not hurt.

“It’s a righteous thing to defend the Word of God and I am so much
of a nothing — to be used of God is just an honor and a privilege,” she said.
“I count it all joy.”

Our half-hour conversation was sprinkled with references to Bible
passages and worship songs. She frequently became emotional when talking about
her relationship with God.

She spent most of her time in jail reading her Bible and writing
notes and singing songs like, “What a Mighty God we serve.”

She especially took comfort in a passage of Scripture from the New
Testament.

“God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love
and of a sound mind,” she said, quoting Second Timothy 1:7.

But it was the following verse that gave her courage.

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of
me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according
to the power of God…”

“I walked and prayed and sang praises in the jail cell and just
really drew comfort from God’s word when I was there,” she told me.

Staver said he marveled at his client’s composure during their
first meeting inside the jailhouse.

“We hugged and shed a few tears and the first words out of her
mouth were, ‘All is well,’” Staver told me. “I went in there to encourage her, but
we went away being encouraged ourselves by her.”

She was at complete peace, Staver said.

“I think it’s hard for people to understand that, but there was a
definite peace,” he said.

Mrs. Davis told me it was worth every day behind bars.

“The Lord died and suffered so terribly for us and I counted such
a privilege and an honor and a joy that I would have to sit a mere five days in
jail to uphold His word,” she said. “For me, it’s worth it.”

Life is slowly returning to normal for Mrs. Davis. She’s back at
work at the clerk’s office – in early, out late. She dotes on her children and
grandson. And she finds time to read her Bible atop a hill on the family’s
property.

And in spite of the media firestorm, this nationally known
defender of religious liberty even found time to celebrate her birthday.

Mrs. Davis turned 50 on Sept. 17 – which just happens to be
Constitution Day.

While the rest of the country is concerned about the economy and border security and the war on terror, reporters have been lobbing gotcha bombs at Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson.

Dr. Carson is under fire because he doesn’t believe a Muslim should be president.

This media-generated dustup over Islam is nonsense, of course. So kudos to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for his reaction to the gotcha game.

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

He told “The Hill” that the next president should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” the retired neurosurgeon declared.

Well, right or wrong, that’s his opinion.

I tend to believe he’s correct. We are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values – not Islamic.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, is facing criticism for something he did not say.

He fielded a question from a man who said President Obama is a Muslim. The media immediately pounced on Trump for not rebuking the man.

“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him?” Trump asked. “I don’t think so!”

This media-generated dustup over Islam is nonsense, of course. So kudos to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for his reaction to the gotcha game.

“If you can find me a Muslim candidate who is a Republican, who will fight hard to protect religious liberty, who will respect the Judeo-Christian heritage of America, who will be committed to destroying ISIS and radical Islam, who will condemn cultures that treat women as second class citizens and who will place their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution, then yes, I will be happy to consider voting for him or her,” Jindal said in a statement.

President Obama once described the Muslim call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.

And that’s OK — that’s his opinion.

For me one of the prettiest sounds on Earth is a gospel choir singing Amazing Grace at a Billy Graham Crusade.

But the Mainstream Media would have you believe that makes me Islamophobic.

The truth is I’m more than happy to fellowship with folks from any religion — so long as they don’t want to blow me up — or chop my head off.

Ahmed Mohamed is a bright young man with a passion for technology. A fourteen year old who attends Irving MacArthur High School near Dallas.

The other day Ahmed brought a homemade clock to class.

But instead of giving the young man a pat on the back – the school called police – thinking he had made a bomb.

To be fair – the device did look a bit unusual – but it was clearly a clock.

The police said while the device was not dangerous – it could be mistaken for a fake explosive.

But it was a clock.

Nevertheless, the police handcuffed Ahmed and hauled him off to jail.

They later decided not to press charges – but he was suspended from school — for making a clock.

I’m exasperated, folks.

On the bright side – President Obama vouched for Ahmed – and even invited him to the White Hosue.

Although, it might be a good idea to leave his clock at home.

The CNN Debate was Carly Fiorina’s night to shine.

That’s what I predicted yesterday morning in my radio commentary and last night – Carly dominated. delivering a powerful performance.

She deftly fielded questions on foreign and domestic policy. And she handled Donald Trump’s personal insults with class and grace.

But her greatest moment came when addressing the issue of abortion – shaming Democrats as well as Republicans who are waffling on defunding Planned Parenthood – saying we must do so in defense of the character of the nation.

“I dare Hilly Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes,’ Fiorina said. ‘Watch a fully-formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain,” Fiorina said. “This is about the character of our nation. If you will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us.”

It was a powerful and poignant moment.

One thing I found incredibly disappointing was the lack of air time given to Senator Ted Cruz and former Governor Mike Huckabee.

It was nearly a half-hour int he debate before the moderators gave Huckabee a chance to speak.

And when they did – they asked him a gotcha question about the Kentucky marriage clerk.

Future moderators would do well to make sure that conservative candidates are given equal time to their establishment counterparts.

Here at the Fox News Corner of the World – we call that fair and balanced.

If the Republicans had attacked President Obama with the same gusto as they’re going after Donald Trump, Mitt Romney would be running for a second term in the White House.

But if there’s one thing the GOP hates worse than Mr. Trump — it’s their base. But instead of governing as Republicans, they kowtow to Democrats.

The Establishment treats conservatives like they’re Cousin Eddie showing up unannounced for Christmas Dinner. We sent those people to Washington to get rid of ObamaCare, defund Planned Parenthood and secure our borders.

All that rhetoric about them wanting a Big Tent party is a bunch of grade A fertilizer  — they want your votes, not your values.

The is truth is there are a lot more gun-toting Bible clingers in the Grand Old Party than there are martini-sipping country clubbers. And between you and me, that has the RNC shaken. Unfortunately, they’re still not stirred.

The town of Middletown appears to be the hardest hit. Within just a few hours the dry brush fueled a fire that exploded.

The blaze seemed to catch everyone by surprise. The dispatches from Associated Press depict complete devastation.

400 houses – gone. 10 businesses left smoderling.

Residents running for their lives as telephone poles and trees burst into flames.

Firefighter Justin Galvin lost his home — a lifetime of memories reducted to ashes shin-deep. It’s all gone, he said.

Meanwhile, fire crews are holding the line in the Sierra Nevada – where the fires threaten the giant Sequoia groves.

some dating back three thousand years.

These are difficult days in North California.

Hope Painter was evacuated from her office building after the first plane hit the World Trade Center tower.

She saw the second plane. She saw people falling from the sky. She saw things a person should never have to see.

Years later – someone gave her a novel – written by my friend Karen Kingsbury. A story set against the backdrop of that One Tuesday Morning.

Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch – a must read for conservatives!

The book changed her life and lifted her from a deep depression.

Hope’s little boy saw how the book changed his mother’s life. And what he did as a result – is simply remarkable.

The four year old used his birthday money to buy copies of that book and gave them to people at Ground Zero.

Anyone who looked sad. A tradition that contiues today.

Kingston is now 8 years old – and he’ll be at Ground Zero with his mom – handing out those books.

In the shadow of where two towers once stood.

A place of Hope, and new beginnings.

The owners of a small Georgia farm took a tractor, a global positioning system and seven acres of corn and created a masterpiece made of maize last month honoring American sniper Chris Kyle.

“I felt like we needed to do something patriotic,” Misty Duren told me. “It hit me one day that it would be great to honor Chris Kyle.”

Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch – a must read for conservatives!

Misty and Lamar Duren are the owners and operators of Corn Dawgs, an adventure park that includes a pumpkin patch, a petting zoo and a corn cannon that can blast an ear of corn at least 100 yards. And they also have a giant corn maze.

The maze was carved into seven acres of corn – creating three miles of trails.

It features a likeness of Kyle’s face, along with stars and the words “God Bless America.”

Kyle was a Navy SEAL and the most prolific sniper in U.S. military history. His best-selling autobiography “American Sniper” became a Hollywood blockbuster – grossing more than $500 million at the box office. Kyle was killed in 2013 at a Texas shooting range.

Mrs. Duren said her family wanted to honor every member of the military with their corn creation.

“If we could put everybody in there we would,” she said. “We  have the utmost respect for all of our veterans as well as the ones who are serving.”

The maze, she said, was just a way to give back and pay homage to their service.

So how in the world were the Durens able to create their jaw-dropping masterpiece?

It’s not as difficult as you might imagine, Mrs. Duren told me.

She said they hired a professional maze company (yes, there really is such a thing) back in July. They spent 48 hours designing the image and about six to eight hours carving the maze in August.

Six to eight hours? That’s it? It takes me longer than that to gas up the weed whacker!

“They’ve got it down to a science,” she told me. “It’s pretty amazing how they can get it done.”

I can only imagine what they can do with shrubbery.

“They put a GPS on the tractor and they download the software and it tells them exactly where to cut and where to turn,” she said.

Last year, the maze was designed to resemble country music’s Florida-Georgia Line. And the year before that — they paid homage to Uncle Si of “Duck Dynasty” fame.

“We’re just huge “Duck Dynasty” fans,” she said.

The maze opens to the public on Sept. 18 and they expect  about 30,000 folks to wander through the twists and turns.

The Corn Dawgs maze is just old-fashioned, family-friendly fun. But it’s also a reminder of the sacrifice made, the treasure lost defending our great nation.

And I reckon Chris Kyle would be mighty proud – mighty proud indeed.

Kim Davis has now been held a prisoner of the United States Government for six days.

Later today – Christians around the nation will gather in Carter County, Kentucky to hold a massive protest rally outside the jail.

Their leader is former Governor Mike Huckabee – who – along with Senator Ted Cruz – are the only Republican candidates to show their support for this good-hearted Christian lady.

Gov. Huckabee says the actions of Judge David Bunning remove all doubt of the criminalization of Christianity in our nation.

And that is why I am urging everyone within driving distance of Carter County to attend today’s rally.

It is imperative that we send a clear message that we will not tolerate judicial tyranny — even if it means sharing a jail cell with Mrs. Davis.
