Right Wing Round-Up - 10/24/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 10/24/13

  • Gary Bauer says that "if Barack Obama were serious about bi-partisan cooperation, which he isn't, he would start by publicly condemning Alan Grayson."
  • Mike Huckabee has endorsed Senator Mike Enzi for reelection over challenger Liz Cheney because Cheney is not anti-gay enough.
  • Mark Krikorian warns that if immigration reform succeeds, "there will be no public space, no opportunity as a national movement for traditionalist small-government conservatism. It's simply finished."
  • It looks like the Tea Party is giving up on repealing Obamacare.
  • Finally, FRC continues to pray against marriage equality: "May God help the pastors and churches in New Jersey, Hawaii, Illinois and New Mexico, to stand and do what only they can to withstand and stop the evil of 'legalized' same-sex marriage. May God give them eyes to see that there can be no religious freedom in a society where homosexual license is honored above God and religious liberty. May they be given wisdom and strength to prevail over everything that God calls abomination, promising to destroy those who embrace it (Lev 18:22; 20:13; Eze 3:17-21; Mt 19:4-6; Gal 5:1; Eph 5:31-31)."

The Prayers Of Cindy Jacobs' Six Year-Old Son Prevented A Presidential Assassination

As the offspring of "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs, her children reportedly posses the spiritual power not only to stop tornadoes simply by speaking to them, but also prevent presidential assassinations.

As Jacobs reported on her most recent "Ten Minute Prayer School," when he son Daniel was six years-old, he came in from playing, complaining of feeling unwell. As his mother tried to figure out what was the matter, Daniel revealed that he was worried that the president might be killed, so the two of them prayed to God would avert any assassination attempts on the president.

"God had called my child into intercessory prayer," Jacobs said. "Later on, we found out, behind the scenes that there had been an assassination attempt on the president; it wasn't widely publicized."

So which president owed his life to Jacobs' son? None other than Ronald Reagan:

Beck: An EMP Attack Will Kill Half The Population, So Buy Food Insurance

One of the oddest things about Glenn Beck's daily radio program is watching him spend twenty minutes ranting and/or sobbing about some topic, only to suddenly make a transition to promoting the company or product that is sponsoring that particular half-hour of programming. 

Sometimes the transition is jarring, like when he has been screaming about how Terminators are going to take over the world and then suddenly stops and begins touting the amazing work being done by Freedomworks or the importance of buying gold from Goldline. 

But other times, the transition is more fluid and natural, like when he talks about a program that aired on his network the night before warning of the dangers of an EMP attack, which he uses encourage his audience to visit FoodInsurance.com.

"If this is indeed what they are going to do to us," Beck said, warning of a possible EMP attack by Russia or Iran or North Korea on the United States, "it will kill half the population in a year. What do you say you're prepared? Go to FoodInsurance and prepare":

Bentley: It Rained Gold During Our Revival In South Africa

Back in 2008, a revival broke out in Lakeland, Florida led by Charismatic preacher Todd Bentley during which thousands of people supposedly found God, had visions, and experienced divine healings of various diseases. Shortly thereafter, Bentley fell from grace when he divorced his wife and married another woman.

Rick Joyner, a close friend of Bentley's, then set about "restoring" Bentley so that he could eventually "be fully released back into ministry."

And that restoration process must have been a smashing success, because Joyner had Bentley on his "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program this week to discuss another revival that he just led in South Africa during which the "Winds of Change Angel" touched Bentley's current wife, causing her to become covered in gold that she could not wash off. 

Everywhere they went, Bentley said, everything was covered in gold, from their hotel rooms to the airplanes upon which they flew and even the meeting rooms where they met with local pastors.

"I had one meeting where we were in worship," Bentley said, "and you could see the Cloud of Glory with open eyes and it rained gold.  When I say it rained gold, Rick, I actually saw it almost looked like snowflakes of gold coming down":

Right Wing Round-Up - 10/23/13

Right Wing Leftovers - 10/23/13

  • Al Mohler told a Mormon audience that "I do not believe that we are going to heaven together, but I do believe we may go to jail together."
  • The ACLJ now says the IRS scandal was the result of "some very ugly, very targeted statements by the president of the United States" in conjunction with a “climate of hostility” created by congressional Democrats and the media.
  • If you are an anti-gay Christian, the Liberty Counsel wants you to know that they are "standing for your liberty."
  • Comedy, Concerned Women For America style.
  • Finally, the folks at AFA are none-too-pleased with remarks made by Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and Bryan Fischer uses it as an opportunity to vent: "The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) are in fact part of an evil conspiracy to celebrate behavior that according to Romans 1 is 'contrary to nature,' consists of 'shameless acts' and causes participants to 'receiv(e)...in themselves the due penalty for their error.'"

Beck: The Washington Redskins Are Being Targeted Because They Donated To The GOP

Responding to reports that the Baltimore Ravens were being paid to promote Obamacare, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts began looking through a report from 2009 that documented which political parties, by team, NFL owners, executives, and players donated to.

When Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere discovered that 97% of the donations made by people affiliated with the Washington Redskins went to the GOP, they knew immediately that this was the reason the team is currently at the center of a debate over whether the term "Redskins" is offensive.

"Oh my gosh!" Beck marveled.  "Follow the money."

"I will bet you that is to send a message," he said, claiming that the Redskins are being tortured and having their right to free speech violated by vindictive political operatives.

Of course, the San Diego Chargers and Houston Texas donated both more money and a higher percentage of it to Republicans without being targeted ... but presumably that is all part of the conspiracy theory:

Beck: NBC Has Sided With Satan And 'Chosen The Path Of Darkness'

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today with an extended rant against NBC, stemming from an incident yesterday when CNBC's Steve Liesman asked for some "Mexican music" to be played while they talked about Ted Cruz.

Saying this was just the latest example of an NBC network intentionally fomenting racial division in America, Beck urged his listeners to start sending out tweets of other example using the hasthtag #NBCRaceCrimes.

Somehow, this discussion eventually came to incorporate the book "The Lucifer Effect," which prompted Beck to declare that the networks for NBC "have chosen the path of darkness" promoted by Satan:

Klingenschmitt: Transgender CO Student Is Visually 'Raping' Girls By Using The Locker Room

As Brian noted earlier this week, the Religious Right has been promoting claims made by the Pacific Justice Institute about a transgender student in a Colorado high school who had supposedly been harassing other girls in the locker room and restrooms.

In reality, there was no harassment, as the entire story originated with the fact that PJI considers the mere presence of a transgender girl to be "inherently intimidating and harassing."

Today, on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt discussed the topic where, in addition to predictably blaming it on a "demonic spirit," he accused this transgender student of "raping, at least visually, these teenage girls" by sharing a locker room with them:
