Glenn Beck continues his efforts to expose the "disinformation campaign" surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing cover-up.
Who is running Mark Sanford's campaign and thought that this was a good way of handling his trespassing story?
CNN is bringing back "Crossfire" and is apparently considering Newt Gingrich for one of the slots. Sounds like a hit.
Trinity Broadcasting Network claims that it is responsible for 36 million conversions to Christ in the past 40 years.
Bryan Fischer seems to have caught the attention of the Anti-Defamation League but won't be issuing any sort of apology.
Finally, after leading a filibuster in protest over the possible use of drones on US soil, Sen. Rand Paul now says that he would have supported the use of drones in the search for the Boston Marathon bombers.
On today's "WallBuilders Live," David Barton and Rick Green interviewed Frank Pavone of Priests for Life where they discussed the trial of Kermit Gosnell. Following the interview, Barton asserted that the Gosnell case "the biggest mass murder trial in American history" before declaring that activists should not be afraid of placing the blame on the Democratic Party because the Democrats "have wrapped Gosnell around themselves":
The news has done a very, very, very poor job of covering the Gosnell trial which is one of the mass murder trials, the biggest mass murder trials in American history. You know, just basically decapitating a hundred babies or sniping the spinal cords and all the screaming, it's just unbelievable.
Democrats are the ones who have owned the abortion issue. In their platform they proudly proclaim [it,] so why do I feel like I have to tread on neutral ground and not call out Democrats versus Republicans? Hey, the Democrats are the ones who have wrapped the flag of abortion around themselves, they have wrapped Gosnell around themselves. Gosnell is a product of the Democrat thinking and philosophy ... If you're in the Democrat Party, this is what your party believes, this is what your party platform says, this is what you've wrapped yourself around, this is what you promote as president, this is it.
Barton went on to proclaim that the key to winning the abortion battle is to educate people about the graphic nature of what abortion entails ... just like they should do with the issue of homosexuality in explaining how truly "reprehensible" it is:
Bill Dannemeyer, a Lutheran guy, he said "you Democrats, you're wanting to fund all this homosexual activity, let me describe to you what homosexuality is." And he just took a homosexual handbook that described the different types of homosexual sex and it grossed all the congressmen out. He said "why are you grossed out, this is what you're funding" and he literally read it into the [Congressional] Record and they wanted to purge the record. But once you get education, you go man, this is gross stuff, whether it's homosexuality, whether it's abortion.
You know, even my grandad, when I got involved in the Republican Party ... he had been a lifelong Democrat, he said "why'd you do that?" And I said "well, Grandad, because of where they are on abortion and where they are on religious expression and where they are on homosexuality." We were building a fence at the time and I vividly remember it, we were putting the barbed wire up and nailing it on the post and he just listened to me and for about five minutes, he didn't say anything and about five minutes later he said "sometime you're going to have to tell me what homosexuality is. I hear people use that and I'm not sure what that is."
And there's a guy who has been in the Democrat Party his whole life but because of the reprehensible nature of what it is, he didn't know, it had never been described. The Founding Fathers called it the crime not to be mentioned, it was that reprehensible.
Last night, as expected, Glenn Beck dedicated his television program to continuing to make his case that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a Saudi national injured in the Boston marathon bombing, was originally taken into custody as a suspect in the bombing and designated as a terrorist, only to have the designation removed as he was prepared for deportation after a meeting between high-ranking US and Saudi officials.
A few of Beck's claims were subsequently undermined by a report published late last night by his own reporters at The Blaze, but Beck is convinced that Alharbi is an al Qaeda operative who was responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston bombing.
And Beck is undaunted, as he stated last night that "the burden of proof is on the federal government" to disprove his conspiracy theory "and so far they have not presented one shred of evidence that refutes what The Blaze has reported. Not one":
On his radio program yesterday, after he finished laying out his conspiracy theory about how the government is supposedly protecting an al Qaeda operative responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston Marathon bombing, Glenn Beck explained how this was all being done for the benefit of Saudi Arabia.
But it turns out that it is not just global forces that Beck is up against in trying to expose this conspiracy, but "principalities and powers" which is Religious Right speak for satanic and demonic forces.
This is not a conspiracy theory. We have the documentation. You want to play ball with us, Washington? Come on, bring it on, play ball! We are not afraid. We know exactly who we are dealing with. We are dealing with, quite honestly, principalites and power beyond our imagination. But we know who we have on our side. Bring it on.
On Thursday's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton attempted to explain why marriage equality is a violation of the Constitution because it is a violation of the Declaration of Independence which is a violation of natural law which is a violation of God's law.
As Barton sees it, the 7th Amendment's language regarding "in suits at common law" means that the Constitution incorporates all of natural law into our legal system, and since common law is based on God's law, our entire system of government is really based on God's law. And thus gay marriage can never be constitutional because it is a violation of God's law.
If that wasn't confusing enough, Barton went on to claim that the government must take a position on the issue of marriage because by not taking a position on it, it is creating an environment in which it must spend tax dollars on dealing with the negative things that happen as a result of not taking a position ... just like how supposedly "25% of all property theft occurs from people who are on drugs who steal money for their habit" somehow demonstrates the dangers of not outlawing drug use:
From a constitutional standpoint, you cannot exclude morals. A number of conservative libertarians in recent months have been saying "hey, marriage is not a constitutional issue" ... yet it is because Article 7 of the Constitutional through the attestation clause incorporates the Declaration [of Independence] into the Constitution.
The Declaration erects the moral standard by talking about the laws of nature and of nature's god. Marriage has always been defined not only as a law of nature - now, it's not necessarily in nature, but they called it a natural law that you should be married to one man, one woman because that is what divine law says; the laws of the god who created nature, the law of nature's god even in the very beginning said one man, one woman, this is good. Jesus reiterated that in Matthew 19 and other places.
So the moral standard, the moral law dictates that marriage is between and man and a woman. That was then incorporated into the Constitution in the Seventh Amendment in what was called the common law. The common law is part of the legal process. And if you look at the common law all the way through time, marriage has been part of the common that. That is why you do not allow bigamy or polygamy or other forms of "igamy" that attack marriage. Marriage is a man and a woman as part of the common law that's part of the Constitution.
Now what's happened in recent years, people have tried to say "hey, morals have nothing to do with government" ... yes they do ... and to believe that you can have government without morals, that's not part of the Constitution, that's not part of the Seventh Amendment, that's not part of the Declaration of Independence, it is a twisted view of constitutionality that says morals are to have no place in this.
The problem is once you don't legislate it, it becomes a government issue because if you say we're not going to legislate drugs, guess who's going to have to take care of all the drug problems that arise? It will be government. We know that right now, 25% of all property theft occurs from people who are on drugs who steal money for their habit. If you legalize that, then there goes property.
If you look at the justice system, the increase in needs to jails and jail beds and et cetera, government is going to take care of this. So if government says this is not an issue, it will be an issue. It will effect our money, it'll effect our spending so anytime a government takes a position that it won't take a position, it has taken a position that it is going to take a position because it is going to spend money on it, if all that convoluted nonsense makes sense.
On Friday, Glenn Beck vowed that, beginning today, he would reveal the government's cover-up of a Saudi Arabian connection to last week's Boston Marathon bombing. True to his word, most of his radio program today has been dedicated to laying out his case, but rather than try to edit down and synthesize Beck's explanation of the conspiracy that is supposedly afoot, we'll let The Blaze do it:
Beck proceeded to highlight the background of the Saudi national first identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston bombings, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, noting that the the NTC issued an event file calling for his deportation using section 212, 3B which is proven terrorist activity.
“We are not sure who actually tagged him as a ’212 3B,’ but we know it is very difficult to charge someone with this — it has to be almost certain,” Beck explained. “It is the equivalent in civil society of charging someone with premeditated murder and seeking the death penalty — it is not thrown around lightly.”
He continued, noting that after Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud on Tuesday, the FBI began backtracking on the Saudi national from suspect, to person of interest, to witness, to victim, to nobody.
Then, on Wednesday, President Obama had a “chance” encounter with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud and Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir.
“Wednesday at 5:35 p.m. the file is altered,” Beck said. “This is unheard of, this is impossible in the timeline due to the severity of the charge….You don’t one day put a 212 3B charge against somebody with deportation, and then the next day take it off. It would require too much to do it.”
“There are only two people that could revoke the deportation order — the director of the NTC could do it after speaking with each department, the FBI, the ATC, etc. — which is impossible to do in such a short period of time, — or, somebody at the very highest levels of the State Department could do it. We don’t have any evidence to tell you which one did it,” Beck said.
Congressman Duncan is in possession of the original event file along with other members of the House Homeland Security Committee, and have sent a formal letter of request (which we have a copy of) to Napolitano for a classified briefing on the Saudi national and the deportation order.
Beck proceeded to highlight more key points: it has been reported that the Saudi national was once flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted.
If, as an ICE official said last week, there is actually a second Saudi in custody, who is it? Beck asked. “Why were there were no names, no pictures presented? The fact is, an event was created for one Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi indicating he was to be deported for terrorism activity related to the Boston bombing. If this file was created with another Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi in mind, don’t you think we should know about it?”
According to Beck, the reason he called Al-Harbi "a very bad, bad, bad man" on Friday's program was to send a message to the government that The Blaze had evidence that he had been classified as "3B" and designated as a terrorist.
In short, Beck is convinced, despite reports to the contrary, that this Saudi national is an al Qaeda operative who successfully recruited the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston bombing and now the government is engaged in a massive disinformation campaign in an effort to cover it up:
A few weeks ago, we received a notice from YouTube that a representative of Glenn Beck's The Blaze had filed multiple copyright claims against ten of our recent videos featuring Beck freaking out over everything from Cyprus to Common Core:
As a result of these copyright claims, all of these videos were removed from our YouTube account.
Over the years, lots of people we have written about and posted videos of on our blog have similarly tried to get our videos removed from YouTube by filing these sorts of copyright claims, and after watching our first account get shut down, we started filing counter-claims, pointing out that our videos are protected by Fair Use.
Since then, every video of ours that has been removed has eventually been restored ... and now the same can be said for our Beck videos as we were informed by YouTube on Friday that all ten of the videos that The Blaze had gotten shut down have now been reinstated.
To celebrate, here are all of the posts featuring the videos Beck tried to have removed:
