Glenn Beck And The Burden Of Being God's Watchman

Glenn Beck spent the first hour of his radio broadcast today issuing yet another dire prophetic declaration that everything he has warned about for the last 10 years is now all coming true and that only his audience has been divinely prepared to save America.

Earlier this year, Beck declared that, for ten years, God had been preparing his audience to save America by electing Ted Cruz as president, but that obviously didn't pan out. So now he is claiming that his audience has been prepared to reclaim America if Donald Trump is elected president and becomes a strongman and a dictator.

Beck doesn't want to have to issue these sorts of warnings, he said, but he has been commanded by God to do so or will otherwise bear the responsibility for the death of millions.

"I can only do what I'm supposed to do, what I feel the Lord has commanded me to do and that is tell the truth," Beck said. "He has commanded me to do my own homework. He has commanded me to never compromise on what you truly believe ... As I started to say in 2004, privately at least, there is a warning in Ezekiel that in those days there will be a watchman on the tower and at the gates. That means all of us, in our own way, are watchmen on the gates, in your own life. And if you see trouble coming, you are supposed to warn the people and, if you don't, the blood of everyone who could have heard the warning and could have done something, that blood is on your hands."

"This audience is the only hope because you are the only audience that is truly been prepared for these things at this time," he declared. "You will be our republic's last line of defense. So what do I do? People are telling me, 'At least just shut up.' I can't. I can't. You condemn me if I continue to warn, but God condemns me if I fail to warn."

Wayne Allyn Root Apparently Thinks White Middle Class Males Are The Slaves In Today's Society

Yesterday, Donald Trump-worshiping sycophant Wayne Allyn Root appeared on "Newsmax Prime" to promote his new book, "Angry White Male: How the Donald Trump Phenomenon is Changing America—and What We Can All Do to Save the Middle Class."

Root said that Democrats are intent on destroying white middle class males and that men like him therefore have every right to be outraged about it, just like blacks were angry when they were the victims of slavery and widespread institutional discrimination.

"We have a right to be angry," Root said. "Certainly today they don't say black people, when they were being persecuted, when they were enslaved, when they weren't allowed to vote, when there were poll taxes, when they were treated like second class citizens, when they were being hosed by policemen in the South, do people today say they had no right to complain and be angry?"

Today, Root said, it is white middle class males who are facing this sort of relentless persecution.

Democrats are "looking to destroy us with taxes, with spending, with regulations, with IRS audits, with Obamacare, with climate change, you name it, we're being attacked from every direction," Root fumed, saying that everything that white males like him believe in has been "under massive attack in the United States of America for the last 50 years, but particularly, the last eight years of Barack Obama."

Michael Brown Has A Simple Solution To The Transgender Bathroom Controversy

On the latest "Truths That Transform" episode from D. James Kennedy Ministries, host Frank Wright interviewed anti-LGBT activist Michael Brown about the controversy over allowing transgender individuals to use the facilities that match the gender with which they identify.

Brown had a very simple solution to the controversy: Transgender people should just "dress in accordance with [their] biological gender" when they are out in public in case they might have to use a restroom.

Wright said that it is entirely reasonable to require transgender people to use facilities that match the gender they were assigned at birth rather than the one with which they currently identify and Brown completely agreed.

"You cannot turn society upside down to help those who struggle, even if it is a genuine handicap," Brown stated. "For example, if people can only drive 20 miles an hour, that's the fastest they're capable of driving, they have to stay off the highway. It's an inconvenience but it hurts everybody else and it causes traffic jams and potential accidents. So if a man says, 'Well, I dress like a woman, what do I do when I need to use the bathroom somewhere?,' that's a real difficulty, that's a real problem but it's not one that you can now put on society as a whole."

"These are ultimately choices people make," he said, "and if it's a matter of going to the bathroom; if you're in public and you're going to have a deal with a bathroom, if you have to dress in accordance with your biological gender, that's the sacrifice you'll have to make, you can't put the sacrifice on everyone else."

Janet Porter: God Will Hold You Accountable For Not Voting For Trump

Today, radical right-wing activist Janet Porter released a video explaining why she will be voting for Donald Trump and warning Christians that they will be held accountable by God if the refuse to do likewise.

Praising Trump for his promises to appoint anti-choice judges, allow churches to directly support candidates without losing their tax-exempt status and make sure that everyone in America says "Merry Christmas," Porter declared that the basic choice in this election is between "life or death for millions."

"God actually told us not to sit [out the election] when He gave us His voter guide in Deuteronomy," she said. "He said, 'Choose life that you and your descendants may live.' You might feel good about yourself sitting out this election, but I can assure you unborn babies won't. The main choice set before us is life or death for millions."

Porter then cited anti-Nazi dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer's famous "not to speak is to speak" quote, which she conveniently updated by adding "not to vote it to vote."

Porter will be voting for Trump, she concluded, "because the alternative is unthinkable."

  • Things seems to be going swimmingly for Donald Trump's campaign: "Trump on Friday announced that campaign Chairman Paul Manafort had resigned."
  • Americans United for Life claims that “the majority of the pro-life bills considered in the 2016 sessions” of state legislatures reflected the policies it put forward in its model legislation.
  • Gary Cass has a question: "If God has ordained men to lead and a woman masquerading as a man by wearing pantsuits is still a woman, why isn't Clinton automatically biblically disqualified to be President? ... According to the scriptures we are under judgment when we have 'women and children' ruling over us (that would also include effeminate and immature men)."
  • Diane Gramley of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania says that if Trump loses the state, it is because of voter fraud: "Four years ago in the last presidential election, Mitt Romney in several precincts in Philadelphia did not receive one vote - which really is an impossibility if it was on the up and up. There is a lot of support in Pennsylvania for Donald Trump. So for him to lose, I would attribute that to voter fraud."
  • Finally, Jim Bakker recently gave Alveda King a year of survival food and she did not seem particularly thrilled by the gift.

James And Shirley Dobson Pray That Americans Will Join Them In Voting For Donald Trump

Today, Future in America, a super PAC supporting Donald Trump, released videos from James Dobson and his wife Shirley endorsing Trump for president and praying that their fellow Americans will join them in voting for him on Election Day.

James Dobson, who once declared that it would be "foolish to believe that a person who lacks honesty and moral integrity is qualified to lead a nation and the world," is now proudly endorsing Trump because he is "deeply concerned about the direction our country is headed" and is confident that Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, "will provide the leadership that this nation most desperately needs."

"Most importantly, Mr. Trump has promised to nominate conservative justices to the United States Supreme Court," Dobson said, which is why he hopes that others will join him in voting for Trump in November.

In her video endorsing Trump, Shirley Dobson declared that "as a Christian mother and grandmother, I am very concerned about our country" and so she is supporting Trump because "he is the best choice to defend religious liberty, protect the unborn, appoint Supreme Court justices and keep America safe."

"I pray," she concluded, "that you will join me" in voting for Trump.

David Barton Says Donald Trump's Campaign 'Definitely Has Reached Out' To Him

At the end of the presentation he recently delivered to a Tea Party gathering in Arkansas, Religious Right activist David Barton stuck around to take a few questions from the audience, during which he revealed that Donald Trump's presidential campaign has reached out to him and that he "helped do some things with them."  

When an audience member asked if either of the current presidential candidates had sought his counsel, Barton, a relentlessly dishonest right-wing pseudo-historian who has repeatedly stated that we will never find a cure for AIDS because the disease is God's punishment for homosexuality, laughingly responded that Hillary Clinton's campaign "definitely hasn't." 

But "the other one definitely has reached out and we've helped do some things with them, putting some events together," Barton said. "We'll see how it goes. But they're looking for input, looking for help."
