King: During Last Election, Democrats 'Knew What Internet Sites We Were Looking At'

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck was interviewing Rep. Steve King and mentioned that, on Monday, Sen. Mike Lee will appear on the program to discuss the theory that Chief Justice John Roberts was "pressured" into ruling in favor of health care reform, possibly through the use of information gathered by the NSA's PRISM surveillance program.

When Beck asked King if he believed that lawmakers were having their personal lives monitored through PRISM and were being blackmailed by it, King responded that there was no doubt that such capabilities existed. In fact, King said, he recently had a private conversation with a Democratic strategist who told him that, during the last election, they knew which websites opposing candidates where visiting.

That caught Beck's attention and he asked King to repeat it, which he did, saying "they knew what internet sites we were looking at" and that the revelation "was a pretty chilling thing to go into my ear."  King said he doesn't know how they obtained such information but he assumes it was through something similar to PRISM:

Given how Beck operates, where any unverified piece of hearsay is immediately believed and trusted so long as it supports his worldview, we won't be at all surprised when he starts to repeatedly assert, as if it was a well-established fact, that Democrats used PRISM to spy on Republican candidates.

Beck Compares Anti-Immigration Republicans to Civil Rights Leaders

Until a few days ago, Glenn Beck had barely even mentioned the issue of immigration reform. But after hosting an event in Washington, DC with 30-50 members of Congress earlier this week where he learned that Tea Party Republican members of the House were going to stage a revolt against the leadership, Beck took to the airwaves to declare that passage of this legislation would be the end of America.

Beck has pledged to put his entire network behind these members (once again turning it into a public policy organization) and, on the program last night, called upon his viewers to rally in support of this effort, saying that if they don't, it will be like Saddam Hussein's slaughter of the Kurds.

Comparing them to heroes like George Washington, Beck ended his monologue by comparing these anti-immigration Republicans to civil rights leaders by running a montage of images of Martin Luther King and other civil rights activists alongside the words "we shall not be moved":

Right Wing Leftovers - 6/13/13

  • Now E.W. Jackson says that he does not believe that yoga leads to Satanism.
  • Speaking of Jackson, he seems to have a long history of failing to pay his bills.
  • Every once in a while, Glenn Beck gets all hushed and emotional and weepy for an entire segment ... today was one of those days.
  • Apparently, the second annual Fortnight for Freedom event starts next week.
  • Rick Joyner declares that now is "a time for courage."
  • Finally, Mat Staver is outraged: "Essentially what we have in this administration is an LGBT affirmative action program. This is the most outrageous violation of conscience and the First Amendment that I have seen within any Administration—trying to force people’s conscience to affirm something that historically has been, and according to natural law and Biblical revelation, is unnatural, immoral and unhealthy."

Klayman: Obama Using NSA Surveillance Program to Control the Population Through Blackmail

Steve Malzberg of Newsmax interviewed Larry Klayman about his multi-billion dollar lawsuits over the NSA surveillance program, which Klayman alleged was being used "by the President and his comrades to try to control the United States and its population" through blackmail:

What Happened to Glenn Beck's Scoop That Was Going to Rock the Nation?

Yesterday, Glenn Beck promised to break news within the next 24 hours that was going to rock the nation and, given the vague and cryptic way in which he spoke about it, it seemed to involve information obtained from a whistleblower that had the to potential "take down pretty much the whole power structure."

The 24 hour window has come and gone and the only news Beck's The Blaze has reported on today is that 70 House Republicans are preparing to revolt against comprehensive immigration reform legislation ... and judging by his radio broadcast from today, this was the big news that he promised yesterday:

There was literally no mention on his program today of a whistleblower or any information that will take down the entire system ... so did Beck's promise of news that would rock the nation yesterday have nothing to do with this supposed whistleblower? 

Was he talking about this immigration revolt the entire time and we simply got confused, thinking that he was promising a whistleblower? Because his whistleblower claims followed directly on the heels of his promise to rock the world with shocking news, so it seemed logical that this was what he was talking about.

But judging by his radio program today, it seems that the immigration revolt is the earth-shattering news that Beck was teasing yesterday.

What happened to his whistleblower?  Is that still under development? 

We genuinely have no idea what is going on.

Here is the full segment from which we clipped the video yesterday - Beck's cryptic promise certainly seemed to be directly related to the statements regarding the whistleblower to us:

UPDATE: On Twitter, Glenn Beck clarified that these two stories were, in fact, unrelated. We apologize for the mistake:

Bachmann: 'We Will Never Again Have a Republican President' if Immigration Reform Passes

Reps. Michele Bachmann, Steve King, and Louie Gohmert are reportedly planning to revolt over comprehensive immigration reform legislation and "are planning a politically risky showdown with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to try to force additional debate on an immigration bill they say will mean amnesty for illegal immigrants and have dire consequences for the country."

So, naturally, Bachmann decided to reach out to the reasonable folks over at WorldNetDaily in an effort to rally support for the effort, warning that if immigration reform passes, "we will never again have a Republican president" because the entire political power structure will forever fall under Democratic control and "you will never again be able to see our country return to its constitutional foundations":

  • Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will be joining David Barton and other Religious Right activists in mobilizing pastors in Iowa next month.
  • Samuel Rodriguez calls on Christians to pray for passage of immigration reform.
  • Greg Laurie senses that we are moving into the Last Days and the rise of the Antichrist.
  • The Family Research Council says the Obama administration is engaged in a "chilling suppression of religious freedom" and "is driving faith underground in our military and will eventually drive it out. "
  • Apparently E.W. Jackson is not receiving tons of criticism because he has said tons of crazy things, but rather simply because he is black.
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is fed up with all the "sissified men and their poofed-up hair and their little tight jeans":

Within 24 Hours, Glenn Beck Will Break News That Will Rock the Nation and Take Down The Entire Power Structure (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Read"What Happened to Glenn Beck's Scoop That Was Going to Rock the Nation?"

The last time Glenn Beck promised that he was about to blow the lid off of a scandal that was going to shake this nation to its core, the revelation turned out to be an incoherent conspiracy theory that he hyperventilated about for a week or two and then pretty much stopped talking about.

So we are a little skeptical of the promise that he made at the top of his radio broadcast today when he said that within the next twenty four hours, his The Blaze network will break a story that is going to rock the nation and take down the entire power structure.

All Beck would say is that there is a whistleblower who has handed over just one document to The Blaze, but "this one document would take down pretty much the whole power structure, pretty much everything."  But this whistleblower is refusing to come forward until he can appear on television in front of Congress out of fear that he will otherwise be killed.

"We are going to be greatly divided as a nation," Beck warned, "in the next ten days and you are going to witness things in American history that have never been witnessed before":
