On Tuesday evening's broadcast of "The Rachel Maddow Show," several of the clips we have posted from End Times radio host Rick Wiles were aired during a segment about the radical views held by various Republican congressional leaders.
For his part, Wiles was unaware that he had been featured on the program until he checked his email and voice-mail on Wednesday morning and found himself under an avalanche of messages attacking for the insane things that he has said. And as he explained on his radio program yesterday, the messages he received could only have come from "people who are demon-possessed" and serve as further proof that an anti-Christian holocaust is coming to America:
I discovered that MSNBC's socialist news commentator Rachel Maddow played a soundbite of me on her program last night. Thank you, Rachel. I appreciate the publicity even though there aren't that many people watching MSNBC, but I'll take all the publicity I can get.
The people who do watch it, however, have a visceral hate for Jesus Christ and Christians. In fifteen years of full-time ministry, I have never read or heard such ugly, hateful, threatening, vulgar, obscene, blasphemous messages in my life. Ever. I won't even repeat them because some of the things that they said about our lord and savior Jesus Christ is so vulgar, so blasphemous, that it only could be uttered by people who are demon-possessed.
The spirit of Antichrist is loose in America. A man of lawlessness is in the White House. His followers hate Christianity. And most of the American Christian church has yet to realize the scope and depth of this hellish hate that is boiling in the Obamanistas towards anybody who dares to profess biblical Christianity and morality.
It is the same spirit that rose up in the Nazis in Germany towards the Jews. This time it will be the Christians in America who are locked up or put to death.
For the last several week, Glenn Beck has been hammering away at the theme that Tea Party activists must become the new leaders of civil rights movement because they are being discriminated against, persecuted, and denied equal protection under the law by a biased and corrupt government. And he is entirely serious, claiming that even while they are becoming the victims of KKK-like intimidation, they will eventually be the force that saves this nation.
Yesterday, Beck flew to Washington, DC for the anti-IRS/anti-immigration Tea Party rally outside the Capitol where, as he explained on his television program last night, he delivered a speech explaining to the audience that "this is a civil rights movement; you may not understand it now, but believe me, you will."
Calling upon the Tea Party to "start moving as a civil rights movement," Beck announced that he is going to be working with Alveda King, the anti-gay, anti-abortion Religious Right activist niece of Martin Luther King, who will start teaching "classes that model exactly what her uncle Martin taught her to do."
"We have to be willing to have the dogs be unleashed on us," Beck declared, because "after what I saw today on the way they're handling things at the Capitol, you're not very far from having the same kind of oppression coming our way":
Yesterday's TruNews radio broadcast with Rick Wiles was entirely dedicated to an interview with right-wing anti-Islam activist Walid Shoebat and his son Theodore during which the three of them attacked ... Glenn Beck!
That's right, according to the Shoebats, Beck is a practitioner of "Chrislam," meaning that he is luring his audience away from true Christianity and into a dangerous Islamo-Mormon deistic universalism with the help of Religious Right leaders such as James Robison, Franklin Graham, and David Barton.
As Theodore explained, Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, considered himself to be a second Muhammad, which is why, Walid said, LDS members will not proselytize to Muslims since "basically they have the same faith":
Walid Shoebat: Glenn Beck isn't really calling for Christianity. He lies when he says 'I'm a Christian, I believe in salvation through Jesus Christ' because he, number one, denies the Trinity; number two, he's a deist. In other words, he believes Muslims and Mormons and all the cults together, Buddhists, believe in God and everybody should conform to this deistic view in belief in God. Why? Because we have a more important thing to deal with and that is the salvation of the country as a nation.
Theodore Shoebat: Why is Glenn Beck so fascinated with universalism? Why does he keep pushing universalism? Because it is part of his religion. People need to understand this about Mormonism. Mormonism is an extreme version of Chrislam. Joseph Smith observed the most extreme form of Islam you could ever imagine. In 1855, the earliest leaders of Mormonism, of the Latter-Day Saints, got together specifically to exalt the Prophet Muhammad. Joseph Smith stated that Muhammad was a prophet of god and that Muhammad suffered just as I have suffered; he paralleled himself to Muhammad. And in a very famous speech he made, the speech called 'Al-Koran or The Sword,' Joseph Smith stated 'in this generation, I will be the second Muhammad. Where it was in his generation the Koran or the sword, it will be in this generation Joseph Smith or the sword.'
Walid Shoebat: The Latter-Day Saints church has sought to respect Islamic laws, that is sharia - that's the thing that Glenn Beck claims to be fighting - and traditions that prohibit conversions of Muslims to other faiths by adopting a policy of non-proselytizing in Islamic countries in the Middle East. In other words, Mormons are not allowed to proselytize to Muslims in the Middle East. Why? Because basically they have the same faith.
Glenn Beck dedicated most of the opening monologue on his television program last night to continuing to warn against any US involvement in Syria, which inevitably led him to his giant blackboard so that he could provide another history lesson about how everything that happened leading up to World War II was rooted in hostility toward religion ... and it is happening again today, not only in Europe but in America as well.
"God is openly mocked," Beck declared, "and hedonism and darkness is being embraced" as he highlighted Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, and Anthony Weiner as evidence.
"Quite honestly America, those are the easy ones," he said, "but if you just scratch just below the surface, you and I both know evil is running amok in our country and all over the globe":
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer explained that liberals support immigration reform because they are being out-bred by conservatives and so "ten, twenty years down the road, they're just going to be outnumbered."
"We are breeding our own voters," Fischer said of conservatives, whereas liberals "have got to import them ... so that's why they're so enamored with illegal aliens and amnesty for them is they've got to find some way to get these people on the voter rolls to just maintain numerical parity with conservatives":
Last week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft attended a gala event where he told a story about how, back in 2005, he removed his Super Bowl ring so that he could show it to Russian president Vladimir Putin, who then allegedly pocketed it and walked out. Kraft says he was pressured by the Bush administration to claim that he had given it to Putin as a gift, which is also what Putin's spokesperson is still claiming.
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck asserted that the only reason this story came out last week is because the United States and Russia are now involved in a proxy war in Syria.
"Nothing like this happens as a coincidence," Beck declared, saying that the US is losing this war so badly that "what we do is we leak a story that he stole a Super Bowl ring you know. That's what that story is about, plain and simple":
Glenn Beck opened his television program last night with a long monologue warning against US involvement in Syria, saying that it will lead to World War III and destroy America.
Beck wondered why a Democratic president like Barack Obama was contemplating intervention when such involvement was wildly unpopular with the American population, saying that during the run up to the war in Iraq, the Left insisted that it was only "neocons" who supported US military action in Middle Eastern countries.
Citing support for military action from Republicans like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Beck declared that "a neocon is a liberal; it's a liberal that says I'm for big, oppressive government that wants to change the whole world through military action":
E. W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for Lt. Governor in Virginia, was the guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program today where he was treated to a sympathetic interview by a host who shares his radical views.
During the discussion, Jackson stood by his anti-gay and anti-abortion views and suggested that efforts to hold him accountable for his previous statements now that he is running for office was somehow an unconstitutional religious test.
Jackson seems to believe that things he said about political issues are not relevant to his political candidacy because he said those things in his capacity as a minister and so using them against him in his campaign amounts to anti-Christian persecution:
It's a sad commentary on our media and culture today that anybody that expresses a Biblical worldview is marginalized and, frankly, not too put too fine a point on it, persecuted for doing so. And I think that's a sad commentary.
But look, it's an attack ultimately on every church-going, Bible-believing Christian out there who holds to a traditional worldview and frankly, I think one of my goals is to champion their right to hold their views without being persecuted for it.
I think Americans are tired of being told that holding to Judeo-Christian values somehow makes you can idiot, as you put it, makes you backwoods, makes you ignorant and unless you buy into the sort of contemporary morality of the day, you are a person to be shunned.
Our Founding Fathers believed that there should never be a religious test and yet that's what we're seeing today. We're seeing people apply a religious test and they're saying anything you believed or said as a minister disqualifies you from serving as Lt. Governor because you hold to these Biblical views.
For some reason, Fischer did not disabuse Jackson of this notion and explain that while "the federal government cannot use a religious test, but voters can, and they should. Let’s be done with the nonsense that asking questions about a candidate’s faith is inappropriate. It certainly is not. In fact, in some ways, the faith questions are the most important, because they go right to the issue of a man’s most deeply held convictions and values."
Glenn Beck spent most of his radio broadcast today continuing to rail against comprehensive immigration reform and urging his listeners to go to Washington, DC on Wednesday to stand with him and several Republican members of Congress who are seeking to permanently torpedo the legislation.
Near the end of the program, Beck recognized that most of his audience will not be able to put their lives on hold in the middle of the week to travel to DC to support this effort and, in fact, he totally understands because he doesn't really want to have to do all the things that he is doing either, but he must because nobody else will.
Beck became increasingly worked up as he went through the litany of massive projects he is working on, explaining that he is trying to "fundamentally transform the media" on television, radio, and the internet while building motion picture production and distribution capacities at the same time that he is putting on massive stage productions and even writing novels.
"I'm hemorrhaging money," Beck bellowed. "I have spent all of the money that I have put away, because I believe in something."
Saying that when he finally sees "somebody else step up to the plate, I will so gladly go away ... You can have my effin' company, you can have it; I don't care!" But so far, nobody has done so.
And so Beck must continue to bear this burden, because somebody needs to be willing to stand up and tell the world that "we're on the Titanic, not all of us are going to make it and unless you have some urgency, we're all going to die":
We already know that Rick Wiles considers President Obama to be an evil, demon-possessed, America-sodomizing, Nazi, Communist, devil from Hell and a "foreign plant" who was "deliberately placed here as a child" in order to destroy this nation.
And on Friday, for the second time in a month, Wiles once again played host to a Republican member of Congress on his radio program when he interviewed South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan about his bogus fear that IRS agents are receiving training with assault weapons.
After a long discussion in which Wiles wondered if immigration reform legislation would require Americans to be implanted with a biometric scanner and whether this nation was currently experiencing a coup d'etat, he asked Duncan if the House had any plans to "pursue Barack Obama's phony identification papers."
Duncan initially tied to laugh it off, saying that people should have voted against Obama during the last election but Wiles refused to let it go, saying "if we know they are lying about all these other things, why not go back and say 'well, maybe the first scandal was a lie too?'"
And with that point, Duncan wholeheartedly agreed, saying "there you go; I'm all with you, so let's go back and revisit some of these things because Americans have questions about not only the IRS scandal but also about the President's validity":
Near the end of today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck grew solemn as he warned his audience that "we are living in Biblical times."
Saying that the Book of Mormon is "really a calendar," Beck said that recent episodes of cannibalism in Syria and Russia are just the sort of thing that the Book of Mormon predicts will take place as we near the Last Days ... adding that he told his staff a long time ago that if they ever heard him mention the Book of Mormon on the air, they would know "we are at the end":
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.
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":
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:
HOUSTON -- Texas members of People For the American Way Foundation’s African American Ministers Leadership Council praised a Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision last week, made public today, to call for an investigation into comments reportedly made by Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Edith Jones indicating a racial bias in her judging. The Chief Judge of the Fifth Circuit determined that this matter would be more effectively investigated by another circuit’s Judicial Council rather than his (and Judge Jones’s) own. We learned today that Chief Justice Roberts had selected the D.C. Circuit’s Judicial Council for this task.
Judge Jones reportedly stated at an event at the University of Pennsylvania Law School in February that Black and Latino people are “predisposed to crime” and “prone to commit acts of violence.” In addition, Judge Jones reportedly said that those who receive the death penalty are done a favor and that arguments of mental retardation and systemic racism amount to “red herrings” in capital trials.
Rev. Dr. Rolen Womack of Houston, Co-Chair of the African American Ministers Leadership Council, said:
We commend the Fifth Circuit’s prompt action in requesting the next step of investigating Judge Jones’ alleged remarks and urge the District of Columbia Circuit to conduct a full and fair investigation.
Throughout American history, African Americans have faced systemic discrimination in the courts. To this day, African Americans are more likely to be arrested for certain crimes and face disproportionately harsh sentences, including being more likely to be sentenced to death. This systemic discrimination stems from the very attitude that Judge Jones reportedly put into words: that Black people and other people of color are “predisposed to crime.”
Americans rely on our federal judges to apply the law fairly and without bias. These recent alleged remarks have called Judge Jones’ impartiality into question. We urge the D.C. Circuit’s Judicial Council to promptly begin its investigation to consider whether Judge Jones should continue to serve on the federal bench.
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":
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":
Several months before the Boy Scouts of America put the decision on ending the ban on gay scouts to a vote at the National Annual Meeting in May, Bryan Fischer boldly guaranteed that there is literally no chance that a vote to end the ban would ever pass.
As the vote neared, it became increasingly clear that there was a very real chance that the vote would, in fact, pass and pass easily ... which is exactly what happened.
But according to Fischer, who recently appeared on The Dove TV to discuss the issue, the American Family Association was so confident that the measure would fail that the only press release the organization prepared was one praising the Boy Scouts for upholding the original policy.
"We had to scramble to issue a press release, a statement, when we found out the vote had gone the other way," Fischer admitted, "so it was a shocker to a lot of people, including to those of us here at AFA":
