Fischer: Bergdahl Release Offers More Proof Obama 'Is Secretly A Muslim'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer said the deal to release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl provides further evidence that President Obama "is secretly a Muslim."

Asserting that Obama insisted on releasing five members of the Taliban as part of the exchange deal because he is constantly attempting to assist radical Islam all over the world, Fischer asserted that Obama's "face lit up like a Christmas tree" when Bergdahl's father briefly spoke in Arabic at the White House, which is another reason to believe that Obama is actually a Muslim.

"I've had Washington insiders tell me everyone in D.C. believes that secretly he is a Muslim," Fischer said, "and when President Obama does stuff like this, it starts making that explanation easier and easier to believe":

FL Legislator Says Obama's Election 'Is An Indictment Of Our Educational System In This Country'

Infuriated by the state Department of Education's approval of a textbook that he felt was baised in favor of Islam, Florida state Sen. Alan Hays introduced legislation giving local school districts the power to choose their own textbooks. 

The legislation was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott last month and today Hays was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" to discuss his effort where he declared that the election of President Barack Obama is proof positive that our entire educational system is fundamentally broken.

Obama's election, Hays said, "is an indictment of our educational system in this country," explaining that "it's because our students have not been properly educated that somebody with that kind of resume could even be considered a candidate, much less elected."

"It's an embarrassment to all of us," Hays concluded and host Rick Green completely agreed, saying that Obama's election "shows that we've dumbed down the education system to the point that our people do not now know to measure a candidate against the values upon which a constitutional republic can survive":

Glenn Beck Explains How Keurig Freed Us From Our Collectivist Coffee Nightmare

Once upon a time, office workers all had to drink the same coffee and those were dark days of communism and government oppression. Then along came companies like Keurig, offering the ability to brew cups of coffee one at a time in a variety of flavors and thus, the free market was born.

At least that seems to be the history lesson delivered by Glenn Beck last night on his television show as he recounted how office kitchens used to simply have one coffee pot from which everyone got their coffee, compared to today where most offices have machines that allow individuals to brew the drink of their personal choice.

Pointing to the array of options his company offers its employees, Beck said "you can have any of these or we could go back to the collectivist and you can have this really crappy instant coffee that just has a flavor that everybody kind of tolerates and kind of likes."

"This is the free market," Beck said, which apparently did not even exist until the invention of individual coffee options around the beginning of this century:

Cass: 'Judges Beware! God Is Not Mocked'

Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is not very happy about the recent ruling from Judge John E. Jones striking down Pennsylvania's ban on gay marriage and has issued a strong warning to Jones and other judges who dare to issue rulings that go against God's law: prepare to spend eternity in Hell.

As Cass explains, the role of a judge is to "affirm and defend the only true source of true justice - God’s unchanging moral law" and those who fail to do so by issuing rulings in favor of abortion rights, marriage equality, or evolution are just like those "German judges that ruled Hitler was just in killing the Jews":

These “mighty ones,” who now enjoy earthly authority as judges, will one day acquiesce to God’s final eternal decree; those who obey the gospel unto eternal life, and the others to the lake of fire! 

Why is God standing poised to judge these “gods?” “And show partiality to the wicked?” (Vs.2b) Literally, these unjust judges “lift up the faces of the wicked.” The wicked ought to be ashamed and downcast in the presence of a just judge, but now they are commended by the courts and find favorable friends on the bench. “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked.”(Proverbs 28:4) Judge John Edward Jones III praised the plaintiffs as “courageous” who asked him to overturn God’s definition of marriage. 

There are many examples of rulings that have “lifted up the face” of the wicked. Courts allow pornographers to fill our media with graphic violence and sex and wonder why our children abuse and kill. Godless judges find “rights” to sodomy and counterfeit marriage. They censor the teaching of any scientific fact that undermines Darwinian state religion. Judges find it perfectly permissible to kill innocent pre-born children, even by the cruelest forms of infanticide.

...

God is no respecter of persons. All mankind, including judges, will account to him and be judged impartially by the same unchanging standard- His eternal, moral law. Money, power, and fame cannot save you from God’s certain judgment. 

Earthly judges and courts ought to be a living parable. They should reflect God’s character and the coming day of God’s perfect, impartial justice. In a day of moral schizophrenia, when the fickle cannons of humanism pervert justice, we need strong advocates of justice that affirm and defend the only true source of true justice- God’s unchanging moral law. 

There is an obvious, anti-Christian bias coming out of the courts that undermines its authority. According to Judge Jones, God’s definition of marriage belongs on “the ash heap of history." It was humanistic, German judges that ruled Hitler was just in killing the Jews. It was the corrupt show courts of Stalin and Moa that justified the slaughter of millions. Judges beware! God is not mocked.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/3/14

  • Opponents of an Islamic Center in Tennessee have lost their effort to shut it down after the Supreme Court refused to hear their case.
  • Bryan Fischer awaits the day the American people "reach their threshold of tolerance for unlawful behavior from our chief executive and simply insist that the constitutional remedy of impeachment be pursued."
  • Mychal Massie analyzes the president: "Obama is a man on the ropes. He is coming more unhinged. Only a person with deep-seated emotional instability makes the public displays he does. Only a person teetering on the brink of emotional collapse continues to make fallacious statements and then attempts to downplay them by claiming even greater lies."
  • Bill Muehlenberg is sick of the "spineless wonders" who "will not lift a finger or say a word about all the evil exploding all around us."
  • Finally, the latest voter mobilization effort from the Religious Right group United In Purpose is "Project 75" which seeks to "get pastors across the America to get 75% of their congregation educated in the Biblical worldview and voting accordingly on Election Day."

Another Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'We're In A Perpetual State Of Tomorrowland'

Every few months, Glenn Beck goes off on an incoherent stream-of-consciousness monologue as his co-hosts and staff just sit there silently, having no idea what on earth he is talking about.

He did so once again during yesterday's morning meeting when he began hectoring his staff about the need "look at the future as the planet" as he explained the importance of constantly designing everything they do in light of the coming future because "we're in a perpetual state of Tomorrowland."

"Tomorrowland doesn't exist," Beck told his befuddled staff. "It's in your mind ... That's what the world's going to be like. Everything we do is going to look like Tomorrowland."

Somehow, that morphed into a lecture about how government and religion have "destroyed the trust we have with each other" but that is not something anyone should worry about because God exists and Silicon Valley is working to "free us faster than the government can enslave us."

"I'm putting my money on Silicon Valley, because it's the only place you can put your money," Beck said. "Put it on God and Silicon Valley. Period":

Garlow: Obama's Support For Gay Marriage 'Tip[ped] The Scales In A Destructive Direction'

Jim Garlow was on AFA's "Today's Issues" program yesterday to discuss his recent statement that President Obama's will be known by future generations as the person responsible for "morally and economically destroying a wonderful experiment called America."

Garlow reiterated this belief while speaking with the AFA's Tim Wildmon as he asserted that Obama's support for marriage equality in 2012 "tip[ped] the scales in a destructive direction" and thus "future sociologists will be able to outline the incredible destructive force of the dissolution of marriage" as having accelerated as a result of Obama's contribution "towards an already destabilized family unit":
