Huckabee: If Someone Breaks Into My House, 'I Call 911 To Tell Them Where To Come Pick Up The Body'

Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee was in New Hampshire to speak at the Republican Leadership Summit and while he was there, he sat down for an interview with conservative activist Kimberly Morin of the Manchester Political Buzz Examiner.

During the discussion, Huckabee shared his views on the Second Amendment by explaining that, where he comes from, the "gun nuts" are the people who support gun control and stated that if somebody broke into this house, the only reason he'd call 911 would be to tell them where to pick up the body of the intruder.

Explaining that he's owned guns since the time he was five, Huckabee said that he cringes when he hears people say that they support the Second Amendment because it protects hunting.

"The Second Amendment is not about hunting," he said, "this is about freedom. And I've heard people say 'Huckabee is one of those gun nuts.' Where I come from, a gun nut is a person who is irrationally afraid of a firearm because they don't understand the nature of having one and the importance to their liberty. I don't love guns, but I do love freedom. I love it a lot."

Huckabee went on to say that the only way to protect that freedom that he loves so much is "if we are able to outgun whoever wants to take that away from me," warning that if somebody breaks into his house, "there will be a gunfight involved in that and I plan to win."

"Yes, I will still call 911," he added, "but it's not going to be to call to helplessly wait as a victim while somebody ravages my family or my home. I call 911 to tell them where to come pick up the body of the son of a gun who broke into my house in the middle of the night":

Dennis Prager Blames California Drought On 'Worship Of Nature'

Right-wing talk radio host Dennis Prager was a guest on Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, promoting his new book, "The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code," during which he blamed California's historic drought on the fact that the state has been violating the commandment against worshiping false gods.

"A false god is one that you really do worship because you think it is godlike," Prager stated. "God created nature. Nature is subservient to God. Nature is created for the human being. Today it is the opposite. Where I live in Southern California, the reason we have no water is not because of drought, it is because of the worship of nature. For example, the incredible amount of water that is taken from humans in order to save some six-inch fish. This is the worship of nature."

Prager's assertion is untrue, but Beck agreed and used the discussion to reiterate his belief that the world is unknowingly worshiping the false gods Baal and Moloch:

Perkins: Obama 'Has Endangered Our Country And Our Future' By Supporting Marriage Equality

The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins sat down for an interview with Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis when both men attended the National Religious Broadcasters convention earlier this year, during which Perkins warned that the Supreme Court will unleash total social chaos if it strikes down gay marriage bans and accused President Obama of endangering America by supporting marriage equality.

Perkins said that any Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage would be akin to the ruling legalizing abortion as he warned that anti-gay Christians will never accept it.

"If they think, like they did in 1973, that they're going to solve this issue by forcing it on the nation, they're wrong," Perkins declared. "They're not going to force a redefinition on Americans that they will accept. They will, I believe, launch us into the most tumultuous time culturally that I think our nation has ever seen."

He went on to assert that the fight for marriage equality is not a civil rights issue because gays are not a "disenfranchised minority" as evidenced by the fact that the movement has lots of political influence, including with President Obama.

"The president is trying to do this," Perkins said. "The president has used the military to do this. The president has endangered our country, he has endangered our country and our future to advance his radical social agenda":

'Tremendous': Scott Walker Scores Highly In The Glenn Beck Primary

For the last several weeks, Glenn Beck had been growing increasingly concerned about the fact that he could not seem to secure an interview with Scott Walker, warning recently that "something is not right" with Walker or his campaign because the Wisconsin governor seemed to be intentionally avoiding appearing on any of Beck's shows.

This morning, Walker finally appeared on Beck's radio program for a half-hour interview and managed to easily win Beck over by responding to some hard-hitting questions such as how his family was holding up and "how is your soul?"

His soul, Walker assured Beck, was in fine shape because everything he has done, including possibly running for president, has been done "not for title, not for fame or fortune," but rather because it has been his "calling."

Beck was clearly quite taken with Walker and thanked him for appearing on his radio program, urging him be the leader that all of the hard-working Americans who listen to Beck's show so desperately want. Walker, in return, thanked Beck for being a leader in the fight for liberty and declared that he looked forward to being on Beck's show "plenty more times."

When the interview was over, Beck could barely contain his excitement, repeatedly saying that among Walker, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul, GOP primary voters have lots of "tremendous" candidates from which to chose and crediting his Tea Party audience for making that happen.

"It's because of you," Beck said. "It is because of the Tea Party. It is because of you that we have these guys ... These guys are directly because of you. Don't ever feel like you didn't make a difference":

Wildmon: The Left Hates Us Because We 'Represent God's Message Of A Moral Standard Having To Do With Sexuality'

The American Family Association's Tim Wildmon was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" today, discussing his organization's "bigotry map," which it recently released in response to the Southern Poverty Law Center's decision to designate his organization as an anti-gay hate group several years ago.

The AFA released this map in a desperate attempt to brand the organization's critics as "bigoted anti-Christian zealots" for daring to point out the AFA's own unrelenting stream of vitriolic bigotry, with Wildmon explaining that it is necessary for the AFA to fight back against the "sexual anarchists" who attack them simply because they "represent God's message of a moral standard having to do with sexuality" in America.

"One of the things that the secular humanists, secular progressives like Obama and others want to push is sexual anarchy," he said. "They really want to force GLBT, homosexual politics on America because they hate the Christian moral standard having to do with sex because it judges some things as moral and immoral and they can't stand that.  They can't stand God telling them how to behave. And we, as Christians in this country, represent God's message of a moral standard having to do with sexuality and God's word teaches that homosexuality is a sin and they can't tolerate that. So they go after us as the messenger"

Happy '212 3B' Anniversary, Glenn Beck!

Two years ago this week, Glenn Beck set out on a crusade to blow the lid off the government conspiracy that was covering up the fact that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a Saudi national who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, was really an al Qaeda "control agent" who was responsible for financing and orchestrating the entire attack.

In the days following the attack, Beck began warning that "this is a turning point in America history," claiming that his The Blaze network had discovered that the government and the media were engaged in a cover-up of the truth behind the bombing, infamously giving the government three days to come clean before his network broke one of the biggest stories in history:

When those three days passed without the government admitting to this supposed cover-up, Beck then dedicated all of his coverage to reporting that Alharbi, who was briefly considered a "person of interest" by investigators before being completely cleared, had received a "212 3B" designation during the investigation, which Beck claimed meant that he was terrorist who must be deported.

For Beck, that was evidence that Alharbi was really an al Qaeda control agent who had financed the entire operation and recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the attack:

When other reporters investigated Beck's claims and dismissed them, Beck grew more and more outraged about what he saw as an ongoing cover-up, proclaiming that the burden of proof rested upon the government to disprove his claims and boldy declaring that anyone who dared to try and refute his allegations would only wind up looking like a fool:

Shortly thereafter, Beck's crusade was essentially derailed when he interviewed a former INS special agent who undercut much of his case by pointing out that the "212 3B" theory under which Beck had been operating "doesn't make sense."

After that, Beck more or less dropped the issue publicly, though he continued to insist that Alharbi was the "money man" behind the attack and that there was a conspiracy afoot to cover it up:

In 2013, Alharbi sued Beck for defamation and slander and late last year, a federal judge rejected Beck's absurd attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed.
