'This Is The Time': Everything Glenn Beck Has Warned About For 10 Years Is Now Coming True

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck issued yet another somber warning that all of the dire catastrophes about which he has been warning for the last 10 years are now coming to fruition.

In this case, Beck was alarmed by a long article in the New York Times exposing an army of Russian internet trolls who foment hoaxes and infiltrate social media outlets for the purpose of posting pro-Russian propaganda. Beck's own The Blaze was mentioned in the article as one of the websites that had been targets of such efforts, which is just further proof that "this is the time I have been talking about for probably 10 years."

"The things that I have been warning about," he said, "that we're going to start turning on each other and we're just not going to know who to believe or who to trust or where to go, this is the time. This is it. I am convinced of it."

"It's just time now," he continued. "It's time now to decide who you are, to decide who your family, in your family history, who your family will remember you as. What did my father do, what did my mother do, what did my grandparents do when the world was insane? We've been talking about it for a while, but it's here. It's here."

Gordon Klingenschmitt Would Require Mandatory Ultrasounds, Then Still Deny Women The Right To Choose

As Miranda has noted several times in recent months, there is a deep rift within the anti-choice movement between the "incrementalists" who seek to ban abortion by gradually chipping away at access and legal protections and the "immediatists" who will only support efforts that seek to immediately and completely outlaw abortion.

Whereas the "incrementalists" are willing to accept some exceptions to anti-choice legislation for political reasons, "immediatists" decry such exceptions as a sell-out of the movement's core mission to outlaw and criminalize abortion.

Not surprisingly, Colorado Republican state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt falls into the latter category, as he questioned the anti-choice bona fides of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker for signing a law forcing women to get an ultrasound before seeking an abortion because the law still allows the women to get an abortion afterwards.

As Klingenschmitt explained on his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, letting women still get an abortion after forcing them to undergo an ultrasound defeats the purpose of implementing anti-choice laws in the first place.

"Some of these ultrasound bills do inadvertently give permission to abort some children if an ultrasound is taken," Klingenschmitt said. "In other words, first you have to jump through all these hoops and then you can kill the baby. Those seven words — 'and then you can kill the baby' — are inadvertently in a lot of these so-called pro-life laws."

"My point is," he continued, "make them get the ultrasound but then you still can't kill the baby after you get the ultrasound."

Mat Staver: Gay Marriage Is A 'Satanic Attack' On Marriage

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber declared that the push for gay marriage is literally satanic and will bring God's judgment down upon this nation.

"When you put two men together within the same-sex agenda," Staver said, "it is not about the institution of marriage; it is about having the protection, the legal status, it's about using that as a hammer to crush anyone who believes in objective reality, marriage reality, that it is the union of a man and a woman, anyone who believes in human sexuality between a man and a woman and that there are certain limits to moral boundaries that we shouldn't cross and that certain limits are on human sexuality. They literally want to ultimately destroy the institution [of marriage]. This is literally a satanic attack, in my view, and there's no question about it."

Barber, of course, readily agreed, saying that "the whole idea of marriage equality is nothing more than a push to gain the official government sanction on evil."

"It is unnatural, it is immoral, it is self-destructive and it is destructive to society," he added. "If our Supreme Court, if our government puts it stamp of approval on that which is evil, woe to our government ... Woe to our nation when God's judgment comes down upon a nation that calls evil good and good evil."

  • Good news: Creflo Dollar will be getting the $70 million private jet that he needs.
  • Cliff Kincaid explains that Joseph McCarthy "didn’t go far enough; the Marxist manipulation of culture was never examined in the detail that was required."
  • Monica Cole of AFA's One Million Moms demands that Fox cancel the new program "Lucifer" because "the show is not only disrespecting Christianity and mocking the Bible, but it can mess with people's eternity."
  • Steve McConkey of 4 Winds Christian Athletics warns that "sports hero Bruce Jenner, now supposedly Caitlyn, will open a floodgate of immorality that will affect Americans for generations to come. Jenner's decision will be exploited by the media and the education system throughout the world. Confused people will now have an adult transgender as a hero."
  • Finally, a proposed California law designed to protect women from being misled by "crisis pregnancy centers" apparently draws "striking parallels to the Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850."

Alex McFarland On Caitlyn Jenner's Transition: 'That's Demonic'

Right-wing Christian apologist Alex McFarland was brought on as a guest on AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program this morning to share his thoughts on the gender transition of Caitlyn Jenner, which he said was "demonic."

"God would not make us a certain way and then demand we not be that way," McFarland said. "When people have gender confusion, which is so prevalent in our country right now and the lines of gender have been blurred, that's not God. We don't blame that on God."

"Homosexuality, same-sex attraction, gender confusion is a means of trying to deal with pain," he continued. "I believe the whole transgender, someone trying to change their sexuality [sic], it's the ultimate form of moral relativism because it's saying, 'God, you have no control on me. God, you have no claim on my life, not even over my gender' ... When Bruce Jenner, he was on CNN a month ago, when he said that he's got the soul of a woman, that's demonic."

Barton: LGBT Activists Are 'Evangelizing' Public School Students To Recruit Them Into Homosexuality

On the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, David Barton warned that LGBT rights activists are seeking to "evangelize" public school students in order to recruit them into homosexuality.

Reacting to reports that an elementary school in Maine had read "I Am Jazz," a book about a transgender child, to young students, Barton warned that this was part of an effort by LGBT activists to evangelize young kids into thinking that they are gay.

"This is evangelism," Barton said. "This is exactly how you evangelize. You raise questions. You give examples. You share stuff, you create relational stories. They're doing evangelism for transgenders."

Barton then went on to once again cite his favorite 19th century source to explain that this is exactly why homosexuality should be illegal.

"The simple answer goes back to a law book in 1814 is that folks like this, like homosexuals, they have to recruit kids," he said. "That's the only way they can keep their movement alive because adults don't go there. You have to recruit kids. And so that's why, back in 1814, they were explaining why we don't allow homosexuality, why our laws are against that, because you're evangelizing kids for that lifestyle."

Daubenmire Organizing 'Focused Prayer' Effort Aimed At Swinging Justice Kennedy's Gay Marriage Vote

Last month, a federal judge acquitted creationist tax scofflaw Kent Hovind of contempt of court and dismissed conspiracy and mail fraud charges against him and "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is pretty sure that it was the prayer effort organized by his "Salt and Light Brigade" that made the difference.

Fresh off of that victory, Daubenmire is now organizing a solemn assembly outside the Supreme Court on June 14 at which right-wing Christians will gather to repent for America and ask God to break through to Justice Anthony Kennedy so that he will vote against legalizing gay marriage.

As Daubenmire told radio host Chuck Wilder yesterday, his Salt and Light Brigade hopes to organize prayer rallies all over America to take place at the same time in order to "focus their guns at the same target" and "punch a hole in the heavenlies."

"We're going to have a solemn assembly of prayer and repentance, asking God, please God, help us rescue marriage," Daubenmire said. "And we're going to totally focus on Justice Kennedy, we believe he is the swing vote, and we're just going to ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and turn the heart of Justice Kennedy that he might see the error of his ways and protect marriage."

Not everyone will be able to join Daubenmire outside the Supreme Court for this rally, he realizes, which is why he is asking for people to organize rallies of their own to take place at the same time in order to increase the power of their prayer effort, likening it to hundreds of people gathering with Super Soaker squirt guns and focusing their aim all on the same spot instead of just spraying in all directions.

"Concentrated, focused prayer" is what Daubenmire needs, he said. "We're going to focus all of our power in the same direction rather than just sporadically squirting our guns up in the air."
