Fischer Asserts That CIA Director John Brennan Is A Muslim

Earlier this year, the anti-Muslim right seized upon an entirely unverified claim by disgraced former FBI agent John Guandolo that John Brennan, the Director of the CIA, had secretly converted to Islam as part of a Saudi Arabian "counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him."

There was absolutely no evidence to support the assertion other than Guandolo's say so, but that didn't matter as it immediately became a widely believed "fact" among people like Bryan Fischer who, to this day, continues to openly repeat it as if were verifiable and true.

On his radio broadcast this afternoon, Fischer cited another totally untrustworthy story claiming that President Obama would be meeting with high-ranking Muslim Brotherhood officials, which then prompted him to boldly declare that "John Brennan is a Muslim ... He's a devout Muslim, he's a die-hard Muslim, he believes what Muslims believe" despite having literally no evidence to support that claim whatsoever:

Wiles & Tancredo: America Must Turn To God In Order To Free Us From Satan's Trap

Former Congressman and current candidate for governor in Colorado, Tom Tancredo, was the guest on Rick Wiles' End Times radio broadcast yesterday where the two men engaged in a long and convoluted discussion about everything that was wrong with the nation and the world, including immigration reform, terrorism, and even the rise of gay rights.

In the end, both Wiles and Tancredo agreed that the only real solution is for this nation to turn back to God in order to free us from the trap created by Satan:

Tancredo: If this nation returned to God, if some crisis did occur that caused people to turn to God and not to government, we've got a chance under that scenario.

Wiles: That's really where it's coming down to, isn't it?

Tancredo: Yes it is. Yes it is.

Wiles: We're going into a situation that the people are going to have to chose who is their god.

Tancredo: Yes, God or Government.  Boy, no kidding!

Wiles: That's really what it's coming down to.

Tancredo: Yeah, what's the big "G" in your life?

...

Wiles: Whatever you want to call this group of this secret government, whoever is running, with the power, what they've said to the American people ... It's really, at the core of it, it's Satan. I mean, He's working through his people on earth just as God works through people.

But literally what has been said to the American people is we will allow you to enjoy your sins - in fact, we will legalize your sins, we'll protect your sins, we'll encourage you to sin.  In return, you give us your freedom.

Tancredo: Yeah.

Wiles: And now, the American people are caught in a trap.

Klingenschmitt: If You Are Gay, 'Then You Should Be Discriminated Against'

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt added his voice to the never-ending Religious Right outrage over a proposed San Antonio anti-discrimination ordinance that would supposedly ban Christians for serving in public office or in any way working for the city.

It is all nonsense, of course, but that didn't stop Chaps from attacking the proposal by saying that gays should be discriminated against ... and citing Martin Luther King to prove it.

Klingenschmitt's line of reasoning was so convoluted that even he couldn't understand it, as he cited MLK's famous "judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" line to assert that "if your heart is full of corruption or sin or immorality - in this case, homosexuality - then you should be discriminated against."

But then, seeming to realize that the argument he was making that discrimination based on character is justified could just as easily be used against people who are anti-gay, Klingenschmitt ended up tying himself in knots:

"When these confusing statutes now try to redefine discrimination and say that you can no longer discriminate against character ... that anyone who discriminates against character is guilty of discrimination and therefore ought to be discriminated against, they're actually saying Martin Luther King himself ought to be punished for his views, and that's not right."

Beck: 'All Of Western Society Comes From The Torah'

Glenn Beck once again hosted John Hagee on his television program last night, where he introduced him as "one of the great men alive today" based on their mutual love and concern for the nation of Israel, which they both explained was rooted in the Bible.

After Beck declared that he "gets his pro-Israel stance from the Bible" and that "between the Bible and the history of America, I know whose side we're supposed to be on," Hagee proclaimed that "the Jewish people do not occupy the land of Israel, they own the land of Israel" because it had been given to them by God. 

As such, Hagee said, Christians are obligated to protect and defend them and Beck eagerly agreed, adding that "we're so indebted because, if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the Torah, which most of our laws come from; all of Western society comes from the Torah":

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/5/13

  • Glenn Beck's The Blaze network has opened a Washington, DC bureau and added a correspondent with White House credentials.
  • RNC chairman Reince Priebus is threatening to pull Republican primary debates from CNN and NBC "unless those companies pull their current Hillary Clinton-related film projects."

Beck: US And Russia Are On The Verge Of World War III

Glenn Beck views all of human history as little more than a series of cycles that continuously repeat, seeing it as his responsibility to understand those cycles and uncover the modern-day recurrences in order to warn all of humanity what is coming down the road.

So when something happens today, it is just like what happened in the past, which means that what happens next will be just like what followed when it happened the last time in exactly the same fashion and on the same timeline.

All of which is a convoluted way of explaining that, according to Beck, we are now on the verge of World War III.

"It's the United States versus Russia," Beck declared on his radio broadcast today. "This is what all of us who are my age grew up worried about. This is it.  It's been a cold war. It's been a proxy war. It's been one where nobody really understands it yet. But I think you're about to.  I think this whole thing in the Middle East is the beginning of the end of the proxy war and the covert war. You're now going to see an openly hot war, I fear, and the beginning of World War III":

Bachmann: Immigration Reform 'Means You Don't Have A Future And A Hope'

Last month, the annual Eagle Forum Collegians Summit took place in Washington, DC where Birther crackpots like Jerome Corsi shared the stage with members of Congress like Michele Bachmann.

Bachmann spent a large part of her speech railing against immigration reform, telling the audience filled with college students that if any legislation passes, their taxes are going to skyrocket, the economy is going to collapse, and their futures are going to be destroyed.

"If you think taxes are high now," Bachmann warned, "get ready! This impacts you.  This means you don't have a job. This means you don't have benefit packages. This means you don't have a future and a hope."

Immigration reform should not be interested in being compassionate to those wishing to come here, she asserted, but rather focused on "America first; it's your life first and we've got to get our house back in order. That's what I'm elected to do: look out for the Americans who voted for me; my job isn't to look out for law-breakers who broke our law to come into the country":

Cruz: A Government Shut Down Is No Big Deal Because It Happens Every Weekend

Tea Party members of Congress like Sen. Ted Cruz are threatening to shut down the federal government in an effort to defund health care reform while, simultaneously, attempting to place the blame for any such shut down on President Obama.

Obviously, pulling that off successfully will require the creation of some pretty ingenious arguments, one of which Cruz tried out last week when he was interviewed on Newsmax TV where he asserted that the term "shut down is a misnomer; what it in fact is is a partial, temporary shut down" where "nonessential government functions are temporarily suspended.

"Now that's inconvenient," Cruz admitted, before adding "but we actually see that every single week on the weekends":
