Barton: We Haven't Had Global Warming In Sixteen Years

As we noted several months ago, David Barton is now leading the fight about Common Core and, in that capacity, recently sat down for a discussion about it in Oklahoma where he made the standard, utterly unfounded claims about how Common Core would lead to the use of iris scanners on students who will be implanted with biometric tracking devices.

But it wasn't only where Common Core would lead that Barton was worried about, as he also warned that the content of the curriculum is heavily focused on indoctrinating students by teaching them about things like global warming.

Barton insisted that while global warming does occur, is it not man-made but rather happens naturally and is no different than normal temperature fluctuations.

"Global warming occurs," Barton stated, but "we haven't had it in sixteen years. But anthropogenic? That hasn't been proved at all, not by a long shot.  Anthropogenic means man-caused global warming.  I mean, we've got cycles, you bet.  That's why we have averages.  That's why in Texas we go from summers of 70 degrees to summers of a 120 degrees. I mean, it's averages":

Klingenschmitt: A Demonic Spirit of Tyranny Is Using Obama To Oppress Us

Every day on his "Pray in Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt seeks to do three things: "we report the news, we discern the spirits, and we pray the Scriptures in Jesus name."

Since "discerning the spirits" is a central component of his program, it is not a surprise that he sees demonic spirits behind just about everything ... including the NSA surveillance program and President Obama's defense of it.

As "Dr. Chaps" explained today, there is a "Satanic, evil spirit" of "hiding" and "secrecy" that is behind the NSA program, just as there is a demon of tyranny that is using President Obama to oppress Americans.

"Father in Heaven, we pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution," Klingenschmitt proclaimed; "against the demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant and that demonic spirit is oppressing us":

Beck: It's Been Like Watching Progressives Sneak Into Your Child's Bedroom And Smother Them

Last month we noted that, after having been incredibly despondent about the future of this nation and humanity in general, Glenn Beck was suddenly rejuvenated after attending a Tea Party rally in Washington, DC, only to shortly thereafter fall back into a funk as he despaired that we were on the verge of the End Times.

So, logically, Beck is now back on the upswing these days and transforming himself into something of a self-help guru as he is now urging his audience to follow his lead and change their lives by choosing to accentuate the positive and put their faith in God.

Beck has recently banned all video games in his house and warned his family that if anyone is caught playing them, every electronic device in the house will be tossed into the family swimming pool. It has made a remarkable difference, says Beck, reinforcing his view that the changes he is making in his life will work not only for him, but for the listeners on his program as well.

As such, no longer will he focus only on the things that make him miserable, but rather on the things that bring him joy, because for too long he has felt like someone who had to sit back and watch as people have set about murdering every thing that he holds dear.

"I feel as though I have seen a killer," Beck explained, "that I can identify - the progressive movement - and we have seen them lie their way into our child's bedroom every single night and smother it with a pillow":

Klingenschmitt: Jesus Will 'Strike Down The Sodomites And Throw Them Into Hell'

On the most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt took issue with a threat by a gay couple to sue the Church of England for the right to get married there following the legalization of gay marriage in that country last month.

Klingenschmitt said that even if a court orders the church to allow the ceremony, God will never bless the marriage, saying that "God is going to withhold his blessing from sodomy because God has defined that as sin."

Klingenschmitt went on to add that one day "Jesus will come back and rule. In fact, he'll strike down the judge, he'll strike down the law in Britain, he'll strike down the sodomites and throw them into Hell":

Fischer: 'Our CIA Director Is Funding Terrorism'

One thing you quickly learn when regularly watching Bryan Fischer's daily program is that as long as he has any source to which he can point, he is willing to treat even the most unverified and baseless statement as fact, so long as it supports his radical agenda.

Just as he does with his Hitler and the Nazis were gay claims and his AIDS denialism, Fischer digs up some source that he can use to supports his statements and then proceeds to simply assert them as proven, verifiable fact.

Last week, he did so when he asserted that CIA Director John Brennan is a Muslim, even though the "source" of this claim is nothing more than the say-so of a disgraced former FBI agent and anti-Islam activist.

So, since in Fischer's world, it is now a proven fact that Brennan is a Muslim, it only stands to reason that Brennan practices zakāt and donates money to Muslim charities.  And since, according to Fischer, one-eighth of all money given to Muslim charities gets funneled to terrorist organizations to fund violent jihad, the United States now finds itself in a situation where the head of the Central Intelligence Agency is using his tax-payer funded salary to subsidize Islamic terror attacks the United States.

"John Brennan is probably paying money every month," Fischer declared, "to support jihad against the United States.  He's funding terrorism. Our CIA Director is funding terrorism!"

Beck: Obama Is Not The Prophet Muhammad, 'Stop Treating Him Like God'

Glenn Beck is outraged by an incident that took place over the weekend at a rodeo in Missouri where a clown put on a mask of President Obama and that audience cheered on the prospect that he'd be run down by a bull.

Beck is not outraged by the act itself, of course, but rather he is outraged that people are outraged about the act and apologizing for it, declaring on his radio program that tomorrow will officially be "Mock the President Day" because Obama is not god.

"I'm sorry, but the guy is a danger to the Constitution of the United States of America," Beck fumed. "He's not Muhammad, and I know he would like to ban anyone who says anything about the Prophet Muhammad because I think he thinks he is the Prophet Muhammad.  He's not.  Stop treating him like God!"

Miller: Obama Is Imposing A 'Systematic Spiritual And Religious Apartheid'

Alaska Tea Party senate candidate Joe Miller spoke at this weekend's "Family Leadership Summit" in Iowa, where he shared the stage with Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump, Steve King, and various others.

During his remarks, Miller told the audience that "we are at war for the heart and soul of this country" and that this war was started "over a century ago by the utopian statists" who have managed to turn our schools "into centers for atheist indoctrination" while imposing a doctrine of moral relativism upon the nation.

"If we ignore" this fight, Miller warned, "it would be cultural and political suicide," before declaring that "the President of the United States and his allies are engaged in a form of systematic spiritual and religious apartheid":

Fischer: Sodomy Is 'An Ugly Word Because It Describes Ugly Behavior'

On his radio program on Friday, Bryan Fischer told his audience that they should never be reluctant to use the word "sodomy" when discussing the issue of homosexuality, saying that it is a "good word" to use precisely because "it's an ugly word because it describes ugly behavior."

Telling his listeners that they must be wary of ever "ceding ground to the enemy" by allowing gay activists to dictate how they can discuss the issue, Fischer explained that that is why he insists on calling marriage equality "sodomy-based marriage."

"I refer to homosexual marriage," Fischer said, "as sodomy-based marriage.  This is a pseudo-marriage; it's counterfeit marriage, fake marriage; not the real thing, it's naugahyde marriage and it is rooted in the act of sodomy":

Fischer: Unconfessed Sin Can Cause Physical Illness

Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a discussion of the Book of James regarding the power of prayer, which prompted him to explain that when praying for someone to be healed, it is important that the person who is sick to confess all of their sins because "unconfessed sin can lead to physical sickness."

"Concealed sin," Fischer said, "unconfessed sin, that can cause physical illness:"

Fischer: 'Russia Is Not Being Homophobic, It’s Homorealistic'

Russia recently enacted a reactionary anti-gay law banning the dissemination of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors."

So, of course, Bryan Fischer wholeheartedly supports it, as he explained to The Voice Of Russia yesterday:

VOR also spoke with Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, who has a different view on the situation.

"Russia is not being homophobic, it’s homorealistic – the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection", the expert said, warning of high health risks linked to this lifestyle.

He cites the Center for Disease Control that has monitored the HIV epidemic since 1987 and determined that 61% of HIV-positive males had sexual contacts with other males.

"Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse," Fischer said.

"I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God’s design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas."

Though same-sex marriages are becoming common all across the world, it doesn’t mean that this idea is popular and everybody supports it, Fischer said.

"Homosexual behavior damages the body and soul. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth."

Daubenmire: 'I'm Sick And Tired Of Being Sodomized By The Left'

Sometimes we come across things that really require no explanation ... or rather, they completely defy explanation.

And this new video from "Coach" Dave Daubenmire ranting that he is "sick and tired of being sodomized by the left" is one of those things.

"The worst part of it is," Daubenmire laments, "the left has sodomized men. I'm not talking about physically sodomizing them; I'm talking about stealing men's manhood.  Through what? Through ridicule and through name-calling and through court attacks. Men, godly men, Christian men are afraid to stand up and speak any more because why? They've been sodomized by the left and they've lost their manhood:"

'When All These Chickens Come Home To Roost': Glenn Beck On The Verge Of A Meltdown

Having traveled to Egypt this week, along with Senator John McCain, Lindsey Graham declared that he had not realized how dire the situation was and warned that the country was on the verge of massive bloodshed.

That comment fueled a truly amazing rant to open the show today on Glenn Beck's radio program as Beck spent literally twenty minutes excoriating Graham and mocking him in with an exaggerated southern accent and generally fuming over the state of the world and that fact that nobody has been listening to his warnings. 

"I challenge you," Beck furiously demanded, "for anybody who thinks I'm a nincompoop, I challenge you to find anyone on planet earth who has had the direction and the specifics as right as I have and we have over the last six years. I challenge you! Bring me the names."

"When all these chickens come home to roost," Beck declared, the entire globe will slide into total chaos and America will once again see lynchings in the street:

Klingenschmitt: What Gays Do Behind Closed Doors Is Not Love, It's Lawlessness

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt voiced his outrage that California's anti-gay Proposition 8 was not being enforced, declaring that there was a demonic spirit of lawlessness inside of government officials who are refusing to enforce it.

There is also a spirit of a lawlessness in gays in general, Klingenschmitt asserted, because they are violating God's law. "Lust is not love," he said, "and whatever they're doing behind closed doors is not love in the homosexuality community. It is lawlessness."

He then went on to pray that God would enforce His law so that it will be established "and will ban sodomy" in America, because "it is a perversion and it is not love at all":

Guinness: 'Cultures Where You Have A High View Of Homosexuality Have A Very Low View Of Women'

David Brody, the Chief Political Correspondent for Pat Robertson's CBN News, posted a short video clip on his blog today featuring Christian author and speaker Os Guinness discussing how Christians should respond to the push for marriage equality.

Brody, who laughably considers himself to be a "neutral political observer," highly recommended Guinness' suggestions about "what Christians need to do when it comes to fighting back against the increasing acceptance of homosexuality in American culture," saying that the video was "very enlightening," so we decided to take a look.

After stating that Christians need to show love to gays just as they do to people who are in prison, Guinness asserted that it is imperative that they also start putting forth "positive arguments" explaining why homosexuality is bad for the people involved as well as for society as a whole.

As an example of the sort of convincing argument that he thinks is going to turn the tide in their favor, Guinness claimed that societies that have a "high view of homosexuality" tend to also "have a very low view of women," like in ancient Sparta.

"A lot of people who advocate the Spartan culture; homosexuals, lesbians, gays, and so on," Guinness said, "they forget Sparta was strong on homosexuals but it was very bad on women.  And many of the cultures where you have a high view of homosexuality have a very low view of women. And women whom we love and feminists who we appreciate; do they realize what they're choosing?"

Again, let us note that Guinness thinks that this is an example of the sort of "positive argument" that anti-gay Christians can use to "win people's hearts and minds."

Good luck with that.

A Biblical American History Lesson With Glenn Beck

It was only a matter of time, given Glenn Beck's current obsession with Israel, before he dedicated a program to Biblical history, which is just what he did last night, spending his opening monologue tracing Western Civilization back to the twelve tribes of Israel and explaining that all of our contemporary laws and society are directly rooted in the Kingdom of Judah.

In Beck's telling, following the defeat of the Assyrians, the lost tribes of Northern Israel fled across the Caucus region and settled on the coastlines of Europe where they created Western Civilization and eventually became the Pilgrims that founded America.

"All of Western Civilization," Beck declared, "is based on the laws of Israel and our entire history is directly tied to this moment" before going on the explain that our Statue of Liberty is, in reality, a representation of Moses proclaiming the Ten Commandments.

Does Glenn Beck Even Read 'The Blaze'? Part II

A while back, we wrote a post noting that sometimes it seems like Glenn Beck doesn't even read the reporting done by The Blaze because he asserts things on the air that have been debunked by his own network.

The same thing happened again today when Beck kicked off his radio program by complaining about how the trial of Nidal Hasan is being handled, during which he asserted that Hasan received a military promotion even while sitting in jail awaiting his trial on multiple murder counts:

Of course, Beck's website debunked that claim several months ago, noting that it only required "little cursory Googling" to discover that the claim was false:

A little cursory Googling immediately shows that the article is false. For instance, the full article mentions figures named General William Hewitt and Colonel Nathan Butterworth. No such Army officers exist. In fact, the only General William Hewitt we were able to find is a British army officer.

How could such a story be written, then? Simple: It is not a story. It is satire — a joke. The Duffel Blog is not a news site. Rather, according to its own “About” page, it is essentially a military equivalent to “The Onion.”

...

Even if you don’t find the joke funny, it’s difficult to argue with the basic fact that it is a joke, and there is no “story” to substantiate the rumor. Major Nidal Hassan remains a Major, and his only potential promotion is to the post of “ex-Major.”

PFAW Foundation Remembers Civil Rights Hero Julius Chambers

We here at People For the American Way Foundation are deeply saddened by the passing of Julius Chambers, a trailblazing civil rights lawyer and former People For the American Way Foundation board member.  In the 1960s, Chambers opened what became the first integrated law firm in North Carolina and later went on to lead the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund.  Throughout his life, he fought and won cases on school desegregation and discrimination, including a case on public school integration – Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education– that went all the way to the Supreme Court and paved the way for the use of busing to counter segregation. 

But as the New York Times noted yesterday:

Mr. Chambers’s victories came with a cost. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in Swann, his offices were firebombed. After his successes in 1965, his car was firebombed and two bombs exploded in his home.

His response was defiant; he said he would “keep fighting.”

More than forty years later, during a 2008 PFAW Foundation panel on the future of the Supreme Court, Chambers made it clear that he was still fighting.  He underscored his commitment to “us[ing] the courts to correct the injustices that we see still perpetuated today,” including discrimination against low-income people.

It is not difficult to see why the North Carolina NAACP chapter described Chambers as “a man of tremendous courage.”

A Window Into Bryan Fischer's Worldview

Watching Bryan Fischer's radio program is often like taking a trip into Bizzaro World , as one watches Fischer concoct utterly nonsensical scenarios and then treat them as if they were actual items worthy of discussion when, in reality, all he is doing is providing a window into his oddly warped worldview.

For example, he spent several segments of today's broadcast discussing the purchase of the Washington Post by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos during which he asserted that outlets such as the Post are losing readers and influence because they are not covering real, important news ... like the fact that some bikers held a church service in a bar in Sturgis during Bike Week, which Fischer thinks ought to be "the number one story of the week, I don't care who you are."

Now, the fact that Fischer thinks that that story ought to be the lead item throughout the media is strange enough, but it is nothing compared to his belief that liberals are "scandalized" by the sale of the Post to Bezos because he sells things like Scooby Doo lunch boxes and Barbie Roll-On lip gloss on Amazon. 

Fischer literally spent two minutes bizarrely explaining that liberals thinks they are so much smarter and better than everyone else and so they are scandalized that someone who sells "plebeian" things like lunch boxes and lip gloss would be taking over one of the nation's elite newspapers:

Minister Leslie Watson Malachi: On Voting Rights, More Bridges to Cross

In response to the Supreme Court's recent Voting Rights Act decision, Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights hero and Georgia congressman, said, "I take it very personally. I gave a little blood on that bridge for the right to vote, for the right to participate in a democratic process."

Klingenschmitt: 'Sell Your Clothes And Buy A Gun'

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt cited a claim by a retired Army captain that the government was stockpiling weapons and ammunition for use against American citizens to warn his audience to sell their clothes to buy weapons to protect themselves from the coming government persecution ... because that is what Jesus would recommend.

"I think Jesus would favor the Second Amendment," Klingenschmitt said, pointing to a passage in Luke where Jesus tells his disciples to sell their cloaks to buy a sword.

Of course, according to the Book of Matthew, when Jesus was later arrested, he told his disciples to put their swords away because "all who draw the sword will die by the sword." But Chaps isn't concerned about that teaching, instead telling his audience that "as a Christian chaplain, sell your clothes and buy a gun. It's time. The government persecution will be coming against you and you need to arm yourselves and defend your family when that time comes":
