Glenn Beck To GOP Hopefuls: 'I Don't Think You Have A Chance' Of Winning Without Coming On My Show

Last year, Glenn Beck was telling everyone who would listen that he hated politics and was tired of talking about it, so he wasn't going to waste his life anymore and was, instead, going to change his direction completely.

But that was last year.  So far this year, it feels to us as if Beck has spent show after show talking about almost nothing but politics, especially the question of who will be the GOP's presidential nominee in 2016. To that end, Beck's network has started taking a monthly poll of whom Beck's followers want to see win the nomination and today they released the results of second monthly poll, which finds Ted Cruz and Scott Walker taking the top spots.

While discussing the results on his radio show today, Beck noted that lots of the candidates have appeared on his program in the past, with the exception of Walker. Walker's apparent reluctance to come on Beck's show, Beck warned, could spell disaster for Walker's presidential aspirations because "I don't think you have a chance" of winning without doing so.

When Beck asked co-host Stu Burguiere if, were he running for president, he would agree to appear on Beck's show, Burguiere noted that his campaign advisers would probably recommend against it but that, as a co-host of the show, he believes that "if you could get this audience behind you, you have a strong chance."

"I don't think you have a chance without it," Beck responded. "I just don't think you can get the Tea Party to be excited. If you're not going to actually address them where they live - and I'm not just saying our audience, I mean the people like us - if you don't come and court the audience where they live, we won't believe you."

Refusing to appear on Beck's show, he said, "shows something about your courage":

Lively: America Will Face 'Calamity And Judgment' If Gay Marriage Is Legalized

On Friday, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively joined Bryan Fischer in-studio for several segments, where the two argued that homosexuality is worse than murder and genocide and that acceptance of gay marriage is "a harbinger of wrath of God."

In a later segment, Lively warned that while other nations may have already legalized gay marriage, it will be different when America does so because "we're the only nation established on the Bible." As such, America will face a massive "calamity" and wholesale collapse of our national infrastructure if gay marriage ever becomes legalized throughout the country, he said.

"When the United States, in its official policy, establishes homosexual sodomy as a basis for marriage under the Constitution," Lively warned, "that's a whole new ballgame and I'm predicting that we're going to see some kind of calamity and judgement is going to occur ... We're going to suffer the consequences of this and we're going to see a rapid meltdown of the infrastructure of the country, especially anything related to the Christian infrastructure of America."

"When they pass this, if God doesn't intervene, they're going to come out of the gate," he continued, "the entire leftist block is going to declare complete victory for their entire agenda and they're going to shift to the last part of their stage of their conquest, which is punishing dissenters. You haven't seen anything yet":

'Coach' Dave Daubenmire: Bar People Who Believe In Evolution From Sitting On Creationist's Jury

Kent Hovind is a right-wing folk hero known as "Dr. Dino" from his days running Dinosaur Adventure Land, a young earth creationist theme park in Florida, who has spent nearly the last decade in prison for refusing to pay federal income tax on the grounds that all of the money generated by his theme park belonged to God.

With his 10-year prison sentence set to come to an end soon, Hovind now finds himself facing even more legal troubles stemming from his alleged efforts to illegally prevent the government from selling off properties seized from him in the original tax case.

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire has long been one of Hovind's most vocal defenders and he has posted several videos in recent days claiming that the government is persecuting Hovind simply for being a Christian, including one today in which he argued that it is unconstitutional for Hovind to be judged by a jury that does not share his particular Christian worldview and belief system.

Daubenmire said that any potential juror who believes in evolution ought to be barred from sitting on Hovind's jury because that would mean that Hovind would not be judged by a "jury of his peers."

"Wouldn't a jury of Kent Hovind's peers be those who believe the same way that he does?" Daubenmire asked. "Wouldn't it be germane that if you put Kent Hovind on trial, that you would have people on the trial who think like he thinks so that they could, in fact, judge the merits of the case rather than their own biases about creationism or the Bible or Christians or whatever?"

To further demonstrate the rock-solid logic of his position, Daubenmire said "it would be like putting a drug dealer on trial [and] you find somebody on the jury who is totally, one hundred per cent against any type of drugs and thinks drug dealers should be prosecuted and thrown in jail."

"That would not be a jury of peers of that drug dealer":

Lively: Homosexuality Is 'Worse Than Murder And Worse Than Genocide'

Last month, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on same-sex marriage, it could lead to the rise of the Antichrist by the end of the year.

Naturally, Bryan Fischer decided to have Lively join him in-studio for his radio program today so that he could discuss his warning to America as well as promote the upcoming prayer vigil that he will be holding outside of the Supreme Court.

Lively told Fischer that America is about to cross "a line with God that hasn't occurred in the entire history of the world since Noah's flood," which he once again asserted was brought about by the celebration of "homosexual marriage."

"The final straw for God was when they started celebrating and engaging in homosexual and bestial marriages," he said.

Lively went on to declare that homosexuality is "the most egregious form of rebellion against God" and is a sin that is "worse than murder and worse then genocide."

"It's not just another sin," he continued. "It's really a harbinger of the judgment of God ... The celebration by the society [of homosexuality] is a harbinger of the wrath of God":

Glenn Beck Says Ben Carson's Prison Sex Comment Is 'The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Heard'

Glenn Beck has been traveling for the past few days and away from his radio studio, meaning that his daily radio program has been audio-only for most of the week.  On today's broadcast, Beck addressed Ben Carson's recent statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice and declared that Carson's possible presidential campaign is now over because his statement was "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

"Goodbye to his presidential career," Beck said. "It's over. It's over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic ... That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement."

"It's not just that he didn't see [the question] coming," Beck continued. "It's that he just thought that was a good answer. That was good enough for him. Just [imagine] I'm at a cocktail party and I'm talking to a friend and they say 'well yeah, you know, you go to prison and you're straight, you get out and you're gay,' don't you look at your friend — I don't care if he's the guy who works at the 7-Eleven and he's not running for president ever — don't you go, 'That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard'?"

Theodore Shoebat Says ISIS Is A Gay Cult And 'Fags' Want To Molest Children

Theodore Shoebat is the sort of viciously anti-gay activist who openly calls for gays to be put to death and who recently became something of a Religious Right hero for his unsuccessful effort to find a bakery that would make a cake for him featuring anti-gay messages.

Earlier this week, Shoebat posted a new article on his website titled "Islam is a homosexual cult, that wants to bring the world into a homosexual pagan empire," which featured a video in which he argued that ISIS is run by gays while asserting that a nondiscrimination ordinance recently defeated in Charlotte, North Carolina, was being pushed by "fags" who want to molest children.

"I love it when people tell me, 'I don't see gay people beheading others,'" Shoebat said, affecting a stereotypical gay voice. "'Why are you fighting against gay people? I don't see gays decapitating people.' Ummm, yeah, there are gay people beheading others. It's something called ISIS. ISIS consists of many homosexuals. Some of their top leaders are homosexual."

Shoebat eventually turned his attention to the proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in Charlotte, which he claimed was designed to allow gay men to gain access to women's restroom so they could molest young boys.

"According to this new bill that these fags want to pass, you will be allowed to go into the woman's bathroom," he said. "The homosexuals want to go into a woman's bathroom so they can molest little boys. That's what this is about. They want to molest children. They want to do so peeping tom stuff on women in the bathroom. They want to be perverts ... The bottom line is that this is nothing but another incremental step to bring the civilized world back to pederasty [and] institutionalized pedophilia."

Why Shoebat thinks that gay men would be seeking access the women's restroom in order to have access to young boys and spy on women is anybody's guess.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 3/5/15

  • According to WND, the Benham brothers "were noticed by HGTV when they were part of a prayer rally in Charlotte." Given that this prayer rally was organized by the Benham brothers explicitly to repent for and denounce homosexuality, it seems that producers at HGTV should have know exactly what they were getting when they signed them up as hosts.
  • Jerry Newcombe insists that "without God, there would be no America and no American freedom."
  • Larry Ward of the Constitutional Rights PAC is outraged that an "unelected bureaucratic panel voted to take away one of the best inventions ever created in the United States" by protecting net neutrality.
  • Laurie Higgins says that "Obama ought to admit that he doesn’t study Scripture to inform his leadership. Rather he distorts and exploits Scripture to defend his political positions."
  • Finally, anti-choice activists are organizing a sit-in at John Boehner's office "in response to Republicans reneging on their promise to vote on 'The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act'" back in January.
