Meet Glenn Beck's New Racial Reconciliation Experts

Alice Patterson is a Texas-based Religious Right activist who also has ties to the movement of self-proclaimed modern-day prophets and apostles known as the New Apostolic Reformation, so much so that she joined then-Gov. Rick Perry on stage during his NAR-heavy "The Response" prayer rally back in 2011.

Much of her effort is focused on "Bridging the Racial and Political Divide," by which she means working to bring African Americans into the Republican party, and in that capacity, she has long maintained close ties to GOP operative and Religious Right quack historian David Barton.

She is also the sort of person who believes that the removal of prayer from public schools resulted in the assassination of president John F. Kennedy:

Passivity caused the court cases that removed prayer from our public schools to remain, causing the protective wall around the United States, our schools and our government to crumble. The very next year President John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. The country mourned but the protective walls were not restored.

She believes that both the Democratic and Republican parties are literally controlled by demons, with the latter having caused former President George W. Bush to do many ungodly things:

Patterson warns that "the further you get up the ladder in Washington, D. C. or state government, the harder it is to withstand the power of the Ahab structure if you’re a Republican" ... which is why President George W. Bush did so many ungodly things, like appointing "an open homosexual to high office," meeting with Muslims, and failing to pass a federal marriage amendment:

Although the Republican Party Platform is full of virtue, many individual Republicans tolerate what the platform does not. Take former evangelical President George W. Bush. Here are just a few of his actions that align with King Ahab’s tolerance of Jezebel.

• He was the first Republican President to appoint an open homosexual to high office— Scott Evertz to the White House Office of National AIDS Policy.

• After the Islamic terrorist attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001, President Bush invited 50 ambassadors from Muslim countries for a traditional meal and prayer at the White House in November 2001 to mark the start of Ramadan. A Republican President was the first to invite Muslims to pray in the White House. President Barack Obama continued the celebration of Ramadan in the White House, but it was started by a Republican President.

• President and Mrs. Bush bowed before the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo.

• President Bush “removed his shoes, entered a mosque and praised Islam for inspiring ‘countless individuals to lead lives of honesty, integrity and morality.’ For the second time since the September 11 terrorist attacks, the president yesterday visited Washington’s oldest mosque, the Islamic Center, where Muslims from 75 nations gather to worship. Bush marked the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan by praising Islam as a hopeful religion of mercy and tolerance.”

• President Bush outraged evangelicals by stating that he believes that Christians and Muslims worship the same god.

• In 2004 President Bush campaigned in favor of a Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that says that marriage is between one man and one woman. However, when he was elected, he said no more about it. If he had put as much importance on it as he did in reforming Social Security, the Marriage Amendment would have passed through Congress. He even said on several occasions that he supported civil unions, which give the same rights as marriage to same-sex couples.

• President Bush proved over and over again that he was an Ahab.

So, naturally, when Barton was helping Glenn Beck co-host Beck's television program last night, he brought Patterson on in person so that she could discuss her efforts at "bridging the racial divide" ... and Beck was so impressed by her and her fellow guest, San Antonio pastor and anti-gay activist Charles Flowers, that he announced that he is going to start doing an entire series of programs featuring the duo in coming weeks:

  • Donald Trump loves the Bible so much that he doesn't even want to talk about it because it is just too personal.
  • "This is the time I was born for," says Glenn Beck.
  • There is a pretty obvious "explanation for the reason we weren’t able to find Saddam’s nukes": He buried them in the desert and now they're going to be found by ISIS and used against the U.S. Thanks, Obama!
  • Ted Cruz brags that 'if you look at Donald Trump's immigration plan, many of the elements of that plan are directly from legislation that I've introduced in the Senate and that I've been fighting for."
  • Finally, Erik Rush says that if communists had simply been murdered en masse back in the 1920s, everything would be fine today:
  • Now, I’m not even going to pretend to be objective here; remember, I’m the guy who said that the federal government, the states, organized militias – someone – should have taken it upon themselves to cut down communist marchers with tommy guns en masse back in the 1920s, that communism should have been banned outright, and that comprehensive counterintelligence programs should have been implemented to quash the advancement of any person or organization even remotely evidencing communist or socialist leanings. Had these things occurred, America would not at this very moment be teetering on the brink of totalitarian collectivism with a cabal of subversive radicals at the helm. "

Glenn Beck And Jonathan Cahn Agree That God's Judgment Is Imminent ... Maybe

Glenn Beck spent an entire hour of his radio program today interviewing Jonathan Cahn about his "Mystery of the Shemitah" theory, which postulates that some massive calamity — possibly an economic meltdown, possibly a terrorist attack, possibly a natural disaster — is going to strike the United States on September 13.

Unsurprisingly, Cahn was in complete agreement with Beck's own prophetic vision that America has reached a "tipping point" and that God is giving us one last warning before judgment and destruction befall us. After once again carefully hedging his bets by asserting that it's entirely possible that nothing at all will happen in September, Cahn warned that we are in a very "dangerous period" thanks especially to the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.

"I'm not going to be politically correct," he said. "It wasn't long ago that we crossed another line and Supreme Court struck down the biblical definition of marriage. That is major."

Saying that the decision was "an act of desecration," Cahn warned that "marriage is a sacred vessel of God. We cannot change that. We have done something major. We have crossed the line not long ago and now we are heading to the climax of this period. So, yeah, I totally agree. We are at a dangerous period where we are war with the very things that founded this nation."

Rafael Cruz: 'The Devil Overplayed His Hand' With SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision

As we have noted before, Rafael Cruz, father of senator and Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, is essentially a poor man's David Barton since a significant amount of his stump speech consists of information that he has lifted directly from Barton's own presentations.

While speaking last week to a gathering in Georgia, Cruz incorporated Barton's latest false claim that the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling will now force churches to hire gays into his own speech as well.

During his speech, which was clearly a campaign event for his son as the father is a frequent campaign surrogate and he finished his remarks by explaining why Ted is the best candidate in the GOP primary before handing out endorsement forms to those in attendance, the elder Cruz declared that "the Devil overplayed his hand" with the gay marriage decision.

"The Devil always overplays his hand," he said, "and the Devil overplayed his hand with that decision on June 26. You've got to realize that that decision was not about homosexual marriage, that decision was a decision against religious liberty. What was the basis for their decision? It was the 14th Amendment. That means they're calling homosexuality a civil right. Understand me well, if they're calling homosexuality a civil right, that means that the next obvious step is a homosexual may come to your church and demand to be hired, whether as pastor or a janitor is immaterial, and if you say, 'I'm sorry I cannot hire you because it violates my religious faith,' you're going to be slapped with a civil rights discrimination lawsuit. Or they may come to your Christian ministry or to your Christian school or to your private business. Civil rights discrimination lawsuits are going to be a dime a dozen."

Glenn Beck's Simple Solution For Defeating ISIS: Destroy Them With Fuel-Air Bombs

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck again spelled out his simple solution for defeating ISIS once and for all by just dropping a fuel-air bomb on them.

As Beck sees it, completely destroying ISIS simply requires a willingness to brutally wipe them out and then just go home, but America won't do that "because we are trapped in a politically correct box."

"You go in there and you blitzkrieg, you wipe it out," Beck said ,"and you say, 'Never again, you don't do that ever again, don't touch us, we activate this and it is Hell on earth.' And then you come home; you don't rebuild anybody, you don't do any of that. You wait and wait and wait and wait until you have no other options and then you hit them hard."

Claiming that the U.S. is currently hitting ISIS "with flowers and cupcakes," Beck declared that we need to just start dropping fuel-air bombs on them, incinerating them with fire while sucking all of the oxygen out of the area.

"That's what has to happen to win a war," he said. "You suck the air out the room, you make your opponent gasp. We're not prepared to do that, so you cannot fight this war until your prepared to be brutal in killing people. Period."

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/26/15

  • A warning from Linda Harvey: "When our dominant religious institutions degenerate into advocating inhumane 'human rights' and unhealthy, bizarre sex practices, America needs to take note. The end of civilization may be closer than we think."
  • The Josh Duggar saga rolls on.
  • President Donald Trump will win the War on Christmas: "I will assault that. I will go so strongly against so many of the things, when they take away the word Christmas. I go out of my way to use the word Christmas."
  • Peter Brimelow says "I think we should simply invade Cuba and overthrow the communist regime. Then maybe America could have Miami back."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer knows what is to blame for today's killing for a journalist and cameraman in Virginia: "The problem was not that there were too many guns in this situation, it was that there were too few."

Fischer: Pornography, Adultery And Ashley Madison Ought To Be Illegal

Bryan Fischer reacted to the latest sordid revelations regarding Josh Duggar on his radio program today by calling for pornography and adultery to be outlawed and for the website Ashley Madison to be shut down.

"I believe that pornography could be, and ought to be, illegal," Fischer said. "It ought to be against the law. The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, it does not protect the freedom or the right to take your clothes off and have sex in front of a camera ... And this Ashley Madison website, which is designed to promote adulterous liaisons, I think that is a website that by its very nature ought to be illegal."

Absurdly comparing adultery to shoplifting, Fischer declared that adultery "ought to be crime in all of society," which would result in websites like Ashley Madison being shut down by the government.

'This Is The Beginning Of Sorrows': Glenn Beck Warns Shooting Of Journalists Shows We’ve Reached The End Times

Back in 2013, Glenn Beck declared on his radio show that if it ever got to the point where he started reading Scripture on the air, you could be sure that it was a sign that we are rapidly approaching the End Times. That was two years ago and since we don't seem to have quite reached the End of Days yet, Beck returned to reading from Scripture on his program today in the wake of the shooting of a television reporter and cameraman live on air, warning once again that our time is up.

The shooting prompted Beck to deliver a long sermon on the Book of Jeremiah, revealing that God has told him that He is giving this nation "one final warning."

"I think God is giving me one final warning," Beck said. "He's telling us, 'You got one more chance, this is it.' I'm telling you this is it ... This is God saying, 'Last chance.'"

"I told these guys fifteen years ago, you ever start to hear me reading right from the Scriptures, you know we're at the end," Beck continued. "I'm reading today right from the Scriptures ... I'm telling you, as we watch things like a shooting on television and a shooting in the street, this is the beginning of sorrows. This is the beginning!"
