Michele Bachmann was a member of the United States Congress for eight years. She ran for the Republican party's nomination for President in the 2012 election, but dropped out. She has been called the "Queen of the Tea Party."
But Michele Bachmann left Congress after a career far shorter than many of her colleagues. In remarks to End Times broadcaster Jan Markell recently, Michele Bachmann may have dropped some clues about why she did that.
Michele Bachmann has long touted her fundamentalist christian beliefs as the basis for her own rhetoric and stances while in Congress. Now she reveals how that mindset affected her job.
“We need to realize how close this clock is to getting towards the midnight hour. And I think that's why for our sake, for the sake of our family, our nation, for the next generations, we need to cry out to a holy God. This is coming faster than anyone can see. I worked very hard on the Intelligence Committee to try and keep up with what was happening in the world. It got to such a crescendo that I could hardly keep up with it anymore. The events had picked up such a pace, and are going to continue."
Michele Bachmann said that she truly believes that President Barack Obama wants Iran to become a nuclear power. She believes that this is one of the signs of the Last Days.
“Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon. Why? Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of madmen who are Islamic radicals, who believe it's their religious duty to bomb Israel and to bomb the United States? That is where we're headed right now. And that's why the best thing we can do is have churches and pastors explain our times, believers need to get our lives right with God. Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus."
