Erik Rush: 'Supernatural Evil' and 'Mind-Control' Behind Rise of the Left

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush is out with another exposé on the left, this time arguing that liberals are pushing a “culture of death” and “deviance” in order to destroy America. But why? Rush explains that the left’s alleged depravity “has its roots in true supernatural evil” as their leaders are “influenced by malevolent forces.”

But Rush also warns that mind control is at work and leading to mass killings: “while I haven’t discounted the possibility of mind-control protocols having been employed on certain individuals lately, I believe it is altogether possible that some of the seemingly random violence we are witnessing may have its genesis in the influence to which I refer.”

Aside from the political and economic upheaval that is now taking place, aspects of the deleterious cultural transformation have become quite surreal. Transvestites, vulgarity, foul-mouthed children, promiscuity, criminality and other forms of sociopathy now permeate our broadcast airwaves. One needs but watch an hour or two of television at any period of the day to affirm this. In particular, the television programming targeting children and young adults is clearly calculated to engender moral ambivalence, narcissism, opportunism and predation. It was gratifying, if too long in coming, when this week Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow reported that “We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists.” One wonders why parents haven’t been screaming this from the rooftops for years.

The determination with which liberals are now advancing economic imprudence, immoderation, immorality, intolerance, racism and deviance simply boggles the mind. Even pedophilia is apparently on the table. This creates cognitive dissonance because it represents a culture of death (perhaps this also explains liberals’ affinity for Islam). Those who question the wisdom of this cultural descent are attacked as being bigoted, and these attacks – particularly against the religious – have become far more vicious.



I may be going out on a limb here, but given the experiences I have had – not my opinion – I firmly believe this exponentially rapid slide we are seeing has its roots in true supernatural evil, that which the spiritual and religious readily acknowledge but which many Americans have difficulty reconciling with the material world and current events. I know that this has become increasingly apparent to those who already hold such a worldview.

It’s easy for people to subscribe to the idea that powerful individuals or organizations are somehow aligned with evil, but more difficult to accept the idea that people in general – friends, relatives, neighbors, social-media trolls – are being directly influenced by malevolent forces. And while I haven’t discounted the possibility of mind-control protocols having been employed on certain individuals lately, I believe it is altogether possible that some of the seemingly random violence we are witnessing may have its genesis in the influence to which I refer.

Shapiro: We Have to Stop Treating Liberal Groups with Civility

When Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News, Ben Shapiro, shows up on Glenn Beck's radio program to promote his new book, "Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans," what do you think they talk about?

Why, the need for "civility" of course!

Shapiro claimed that groups like Media Matters colluded with the White House in weekly meetings where they plotted strategy on how to destroy Beck by monitoring his program in order to find clips they could take out of context and then use to target his advertisers and ultimately drive him off the air.

"These are not pro-First Amendment people," said Shapiro. "These are not pro-free speech people. These are not pro-civility people. They're not civil and we have to stop treating them as though civility is going to win the day ... The moral high ground doesn't do us a lot of good when we're fighting people who are absolute thugs."

Shapiro justified his call to stop being civil with liberals on the grounds that there is some of a "Geneva Convention with regard to civility" whereby only those who abide by the convention deserve its protections. And since liberals basically operate like terrorists, they are not entitled to the convention's guarantees of civility; an idea that Beck thought was absolutely "profound":

Again, this was Glenn Beck and the Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News claiming that other people are uncivil and therefore undeserving of being treated with civility.

Fischer: Natural Disasters are God's Spankings

As is his custom, Bryan Fischer began today's radio program with a reading and discussion from the Bible, in this case a passage from the book of Joel which Fischer said revealed that all natural disasters were sent by God in order to correct humanity just as parents have to spank disobedient children in order to teach them a lesson:

God Miraculously Made a Pair Of Cindy Jacobs' Shoes Last for Years

On the most recent episode of "God Knows," Cindy Jacobs warned that the world was heading into a "season of shaking" and so people ought to start making preparations and stockpiling some provisions.  But Christians will not have much to worry about because God will provide for them supernaturally, just like how he has miraculously multiplied the dinners she has cooked and the oil she has used and also made a set of tires on her car and a pair shoes she owned last for years and years:

Hagee: Gay Marriage is Just 'Two Disturbed People Playing House'

On yesterday's weekly installment of "The Hagee Hotline," John Hagee responded to question from a viewer wondering if those who are not in God's favor are prevented from finding a husband or wife by saying the idea was nonsense because people are getting married all the time. 

But that doesn't mean that people are meeting the Bible's requirements for getting married, one of which is that the person they marry must be of the opposite sex because "anything else is two disturbed people playing house":

William Gheen Exposes Immigrant Plot to Collapse Economy, Break America Apart

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC president William Gheen stopped by Crosstalk on VCY America yesterday where he warned that undocumented immigrants are playing the long game in their supposed plan to destabilize the U.S. The anti-immigrant zealot maintained that undocumented immigrants want voting rights so they can form a powerful voting bloc that displaces conservative voters and forces taxpayers “to pay reparations” to them. Gheen predicts that such reparations are designed to bring about an economic collapse, which he says is all according to their plan to “become more separatist and say, ‘well we need to have these lands in the Southwest back’” and realize the Reconquista.

If they lift the current penalties against illegal immigrants, allowing them to stay even if Congress does not convey full citizenship rights, that will immediately become the next battle. They will get the voting rights and they will have enough—a new illegal alien voting bloc in this country, millions strong. You will have the Democrats, the Republicans and the illegal aliens, and they are going to probably displace somewhere around 6-9 million American conservative or center-right voters that will no longer matter in American politics. They will have enough people to do whatever they want, if they want higher taxes for you to pay reparations.

We believe there are three phases. The legalization phase, which we’re fighting against now, if we lose that battle the illegal immigrants and their supporters will move to the reparations phase, where they will demand every—they’re already receiving over 57 percent of the illegal immigrants from Mexico in the country are already receiving some form of welfare according to the Center for Immigration Studies—so then they’ll try to milk the system for everything that they feel they’re owed. Then once the United States government finally stops printing money or it collapses or whatever the end game may be to this financial fiasco that we’re witnessing on a weekly basis, then we think they’ll become more separatist and say, ‘well we need to have these lands in the Southwest back.’

He also asserted that the left will want President Obama to stay in office indefinitely: “We know very clearly that there is a cult of support out there for Obama that treats him like a deity, treats him like a black Jesus,” Gheen claimed. “They’re basically trying to get him to where he’s in office for forever more until the emperor wants to leave.

Gheen, who has floated the possibility of violence and even a coup to “remove [Obama] from office,” later told a caller that he recommends that people purchase a gun to defend themselves from immigrants…but “to stay cool here because the Department of Homeland Security would love to have an excuse for Janet Napolitano and Obama to do their thing on a larger scale.”

Caller: I tell you what, with the federal government lying to us constantly like this, is it any wonder that people are arming themselves en masse?

Gheen: Well that’s approaching a line that we don’t deal with, we basically deal with the lobbying and the elections but we have to acknowledge the frustration at this point. You know, we’re asking people to continue working in elections, continue lobbying Congress, continue to use the civic, civil, peaceful processes here, but we know that people are getting fed up out there because they’ve seen all of those systems corrupted to a point where they’re not working. Congress is getting asked to rubberstamp things that have already be done and from what we can tell what Obama’s doing is not very much different than what John McCain or George Bush would’ve done. So we’ve got a situation where the American people are feeling very cornered and un-empowered. I would just caution everybody to stay cool here because the Department of Homeland Security would love to have an excuse for Janet Napolitano and Obama to do their thing on a larger scale. So we’ve got to keep it politically focused, keep it civic minded. And what people need to do to take care and protect their own family and friends, especially since illegal immigrants with criminal records are being allowed to roam freely around the country harming our citizens, within the law I’ve actually come to the point where I’ve told people, if you’re law-abiding, if you’re one of the good people, I support gun ownership and now would be a good time to own one if you don’t already.

Dear Religious Right, This is What Intentional 'Misrepresentation' Looks Like

At this point, we don't really expect much from Bryan Fischer ... but still, some basic honesty would be nice.

On his radio program today, Fischer was discussing remarks Sen. Harry Reid delivered on the Senate floor last week blasting the failure by Congress, thanks to House Republicans, to pass a relief package for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  In his remarks, Reid noted that Congress passed legislation aiding victims of Hurricane Katrina within ten days back in 2005, while victims of Sandy have had to wait over two months for assistance.

But in Fischer's deluded world, Reid's remarks were "a damning indictment of [President] Obama's FEMA."

Fischer was fully aware that Reid was criticizing Congress for failing to appropriate the money that FEMA needs to carry out relief work but flagrantly misrepresented his statement to claim that Reid was admitting that when President Bush was in charge, Katrina victims received assistance within days, while Sandy victims under Obama have been forced to wait months:

The next time any Religious Right activist wants to complain that we "misrepresent" their views or take their statements "out of context," we'll just point them to this Fischer clip as an example of what real, actual intentional misrepresentation looks like.

Bryan Fischer Praises Scott Lively and Suggests his Critics are Satanically Inspired

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer yesterday on Focal Point defended his close ally Scott Lively, downplaying his work shaping Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill and advocating for the imprisonment of gay people as simply giving “talks supporting natural marriage.” But Fischer, who shares Lively’s views on criminalizing LGBT status and blaming gays for the Holocaust, asserted that Lively “did the same kind of stuff over there that we do every day on Focal Point.” Fischer said the left seeks to “exterminate pro-family voices” and “want us to be destroyed,” which is interesting because the bill in Uganda makes the “promotion homosexuality” a crime.

Watch:

Later, Fischer also prayed on behalf of Lively and suggested that his critics are inspired by Satan, asking God to “send confusion into the camp of the Enemy.”

Glenn Beck Goes Galt: 'Hank Rearden is About to Pour Some Steel'

Last night on his television program, Glenn Beck announced that all this week he would be unveiling his modest plan to fundamentally revolutionize the world with something called "The American Dream Labs."

While making repeated references to "Galt's Gulch" and comparing his efforts to the things done by Thomas Edison and Walt Disney, Beck announced that his "dream labs" were working on ideas that will "blow your mind" by transforming everything from technology to education to agriculture to entertainment and even inventing new forms of energy.

And soon the people who laughed when Beck was kicked off of television "will beg for the time when I was only on an hour every day, five hours a week" because "Hank Rearden is about to pour some steel and it will fundamentally transform us" and finally make us worthy of calling ourselves Americans! 

Perkins Angry about 'Goofy' Yoga in the Military

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins today is using his radio bulletin to slam the Marine Corps for teaching meditative practices to Marines, designed by a former Army captain, that intend “to bolster their emotional health and improve their mental performance under the stress and strain of war.” He criticized the techniques like breathing exercises and Yoga that are used to reduce Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and improve attentiveness as “goofy” and “New Age.”

Perkins quoted Staff Sgt. Nathan Hampton in the Washington Times questioning the usefulness of meditation instruction…but left out the very next line where he goes on to say that he ultimately found the practice immensely helpful:

“A lot of people thought it would be a waste of time,” he said. “Why are we sitting around a classroom doing their weird meditative stuff?

“But over time, I felt more relaxed. I slept better. Physically, I noticed that I wasn’t tense all the time. It helps you think more clearly and decisively in stressful situations. There was a benefit.”

An initial study of the program found that “the troops recovered better from stressful training, while their brain scans showed similarities to those taken of elite Special Forces soldiers and Olympic athletes.”

Perkins, who earlier claimed that the military is about to implode as a result of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, attacked the military for allegedly “driving religion out” and for having “Wiccan worship centers.” Naturally, he didn’t explain how having a class on meditation or a place of worship for people who practice Wicca jeopardizes religious freedom.

In the military, it's out with God--and in with the goofy! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. As part some new training, Marines are being asked to join weekly yoga and meditation classes. Sergeant Nathan Hampton said the idea took some getting used to. "Why are we sitting around a classroom doing weird meditating stuff?" he wondered. Former Army Captain Elizabeth Stanley says it's to relieve stress. She's the one behind M-Fit, or Mind Fitness Training. She insists the New Age approach "creates a sense of calmness, reduces drug and alcohol use, increases productivity, and improves working relationships." What a coincidence--so does faith! Unfortunately, the military seems intent on driving religion out and replacing it with wacky substitutes. They've added atheist chaplains, Wiccan worship centers, and now, meditation classes. But none of them are as effective or as constructive as a personal relationship with God. Unfortunately, though, it's mind over what matters--and that's faith.

Pastor: 'If We Embrace Homosexuality, We'll Destroy Society'

Pastor Dave Buehner on today’s broadcast of Generations Radio warned that God “hates homosexuals” just as a father would hate having his daughter put her hand on a hot stove. Buehner told pastor and co-host Kevin Swanson that homosexuality will reap divine punishment just as a hot stove will burn someone’s hand. “If we put our hands on the stove, we’ll get burned,” Buehner said, “If we embrace homosexuality, we’ll destroy society, we’ll destroy lives, we’ll destroy families, we’ll destroy everything.”

Earlier, Buehner compared making gay friends to befriending cannibals and likened gay marriage to the Sandy Hook shooting.

Buehner: Kevin, if you tell your daughter, your beautiful daughter, ‘Hey, don’t put your hand on the hot stove.’ She can look at that and say, ‘My dad’s a tyrant, he won’t give me liberty to put my hand on the hot stove.’ The fact of the matter is if she puts her hand on the hot stove, bad things will happen. God’s law is like that. God’s law will tell us that if we do things that are bad, bad things will happen. If we put our hands on the stove, we’ll get burned. If we embrace homosexuality, we’ll destroy society, we’ll destroy lives, we’ll destroy families, we’ll destroy everything. It’s not just that God just hates homosexuals, there’s a reason why he hates it. It’s the same reason you would hate your daughter putting her hand on a hot stove.

Diana West Warns Obama is Fostering 'Totalitarianism' and 'The End of Liberty'

Conservative columnist Diana West returned to Frank Gaffney’s show, Secure Freedom Radio, where the two agreed that President Obama is going to gut the Constitution in order to bring about a “dictatorship.” Gaffney pointed to an op-ed by Louis Michael Seidman which criticized the Constitution’s “archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions,” and then connected Seidman to…Obama. How you might ask? Well, they are both constitutional law professors, Gaffney explains, so they must share the same views on the suitability of the Constitution in today’s society and both support “a kind of post-constitutionalism.”

West agreed with Gaffney’s claim that Obama is putting Seidman’s take on the Constitution into practice and went on to argue that he is undermining the rule of law and promoting “totalitarianism.” Gaffney also warned that “freedom of speech” is “very much on the line.”

Gaffney: There’s a kind of betrayal being proposed at the moment, it’s been quite formally now advanced in the form of a column that’s getting a lot of attention but less formally it seems to be the practice of the Obama administration, a kind of post-constitutionalism. Louis Michael Seidman who is a professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University, the profession that of course our President had prior to entering public life at the University of Chicago, it was entitled back in December 30, 2012, “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution.” Do you think, Diana West, that’s in fact what we are doing now increasingly in the government of the United States under President Barack Obama?

West: Yes, I do. I think that this is another evolution that has been a long time coming; this is not a brand new development. However, the boldness and the frontal assault of such a notion is going to increasingly gain currency and what we are actually doing is watching the disillusion of rule of law and the increasing elevation of the rule of men, by men I mean women as well, but in terms of a rule of a person who is not bound by the law. This leads to dictatorship, it leads to totalitarianism, it leads to the end of liberty. It’s a terrible development and it’s dire. I can’t overstate the seriousness of this notion gaining currency, particularly in law schools. This is a tremendous threat and unless our legislators, unless our pundits, our people, our town halls, our tea parties get involved in such a matter it is going to sweep us over.

Gaffney: Not least, and this is an area I know you’re following very closely Diana West and we will discuss with you again in the weeks to come in 2013, the effect on some of our most fundamental freedoms. For example, freedom of speech, the ability to have this kind of conversation where it might give offense to Muslims, is very much on the line.

Klayman: 'Revolution' Needed to Bring Down 'Black-Muslim' Obama

In his latest WorldNetDaily column, Larry Klayman calls for a literal revolution to overthrow President Obama that mirrors the American Revolution against King George III. Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch, claims in his column “Revolution!” that the recent fiscal cliff deal, the “moral decay that has swept the nation” and the unsuccessful birther legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility (among other reasons) provide a rationale to topple the “black-Muslim, anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian ‘Manchurian candidate’ fraudster socialist tyrant in the Oval Office.”

“I am currently in a deep contemplative mood on how to try to do this peacefully without resort to violence,” Klayman writes, “The Founding Fathers, however, ultimately concluded that peaceful means were not possible.”

I’ve been writing about it for over a year. Many of you may have thought that I was just trying to make a point and not serious about it. But, indeed I was always serious, as you should be too – as our Founding Fathers John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and company were serious in the years leading up to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. We no longer have a free nation! We no longer have a functional republic! What choice is there when the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government fail and refuse to take into account the profound grievances of the “We the People” and instead walk off to feather their own corrupt establishment nest?



Second, John Adams (who as a trial lawyer risked his career to successfully defend British soldiers who had been provoked to fire on and kill colonial protesters on Boston Common) and his fellow Founding Fathers were outraged that even after the American legal system had functioned properly and acquitted the British soldiers, King George ordered that all criminal defendants accused of felonies be subsequently tried in British courts in London. The king removed the legal right of the colonies to adjudicate serious crimes committed on American soil. Today, and as just one example among an ever-expanding array of disgraceful illegal acts by our judges on a daily basis, the refusal of courts to hear eligibility challenges concerning the status of Barack Hussein Obama as a “natural born citizen” reinforces the reality that we no longer have a functional legal system. Notwithstanding that the result is a black-Muslim, anti-white, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian “Manchurian candidate” fraudster socialist tyrant in the Oval Office – bent on tearing down and destroying the pillars of our formerly capitalist society – “We the People” have been left defenseless, legally, by the judges who have taken an oath to obey the U.S. Constitution, the law and mete out justice.



In short, our situation – whereby the nation has been intentionally bankrupted by the Democratic and Republican establishment and sold out to the equivalent of biblical money changers in the modern form of special interests who line the pockets of our government representatives with campaign contributions and other forms of cash, legal and illegal, to do their bidding – is far worse than in 1776. And, that is not even to mention the moral decay that has swept the nation and is rotting it from within, as manifested in our generally filthy and degenerate movies, television and music – which have been furthered by government entities like the Federal Communications Commission, whose commissioners come from both political parties.



The time has come after a long line of “abuses and usurpations” for us to rise up and demand that our current so called rulers leave “Dodge City,” or suffer the consequences as King George III was forced to do.

I am currently in a deep contemplative mood on how to try to do this peacefully without resort to violence. The Founding Fathers, however, ultimately concluded that peaceful means were not possible.

We now find ourselves at a similar crossroads with little time to waste before the nation is totally destroyed by its corrupt and degenerate establishment rulers.

Fischer: Businesses Threatened by 'Flaming Homosexual' Job Applicants and the 'Return of Jim Crow Laws'

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer today blew up over the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), warning in a blog post that “ENDA would represent the return of Jim Crow laws.” On his radio program Focal Point, Fischer warned that if ENDA is signed into law businesses will be faced with a barrage of “flaming homosexual” job applicants. “The homosexual lobby,” Fischer said, “will send a guy in there wearing stilettos, a dress and dangly earrings” in order to provoke Christian business-owners “not to hire him.”

Erik Rush: Obama Bringing About the Apocalypse

Conservative columnist Erik Rush continues to test the boundaries of Poe’s Law in his latest column which argues that President Obama is part of a communist government-media-law school conspiracy that is bringing about the End Times:

At present, the snapshot looks like this: There is a dedicated communist residing in the White House in the form of one Barack Hussein Obama (This is probably not even his given name, but we won’t go there right now). Many conditions conspired to bring this about, and to keep Obama in power.

Part of it had to do with the cult of personality, particularly concerning his ethnicity. Part of it had to do with patriotic and otherwise engaged Americans having capitulated to the dictates and erroneous interpretations of American law proffered by communist academics and lawyers; this gave rise to the rise of progressive and Marxist thought and policies in America, which should have been addressed with extreme prejudice 70 years ago.

A starry-eyed press, indoctrinated into liberal-socialism by communist journalism school professors, have become no less than a state propaganda bureau. Thus, the press as most of us understand it, no longer exists. We can count on their doing all they can to aid Obama and the mission of the radical left in the foreseeable future. The most harmful realm in which they currently operate is that of nondisclosure, whereby they are withholding vast amounts of information concerning the criminality of this administration from the public, and the degree of power it continues to criminally usurp and coalesce.



Many Americans have wondered why, like the press, GOP leaders are also withholding vast amounts of information concerning the criminality of this administration from the public. Whether they are too well-sated and disconnected to care, or they are deliberately running interference for congressional socialists, it still spells complicity.

I don’t often go out on the limb of religious doctrine, but you have to admit that in the aggregate, this all lends credence to Armageddon dogma, whether one subscribes to the Millennialist view, of if one merely accepts the Book of Revelation (there being a difference). If one recognizes neither, there’s still the dystopian science fiction atrociously-oppressive government scenario. Interpreting it as politics as usual would be, in my view, a form of desperate denial.

Whether the individual American, apprised of these facts, determines to become a full-blown prepper in response to it, or to set aside a revolver with one bullet in the chamber, the days of sitting on the sidelines are over, like it or not.

Sorry if you though the Mayan end-of-the-world thing would be our “easy out…”

Klingenschmitt: Obamacare will 'Exterminate the Elderly Systematically'

Gordon Klingenschmitt typically uses his Pray In Jesus Name Project email list to attack gays and gay right supporters, but yesterday he asked members to join renewed efforts by the House GOP to repeal the health care reform law. Klingenschmitt, a longtime Religious Right activist who once performed an exorcism on a gay rape survivor, warned that “federal bureaucrats will enforce Obamacare to exterminate the elderly, systematically” and claimed that “the government is now abolishing the church with the state sword.”

Euthanasia is coming from Obamacare. He already de-funded Medicare Advantage by 800 Billion dollars, taking care away from the elderly to pay young people who refuse to work. Democrats see cost savings by eliminating the red line above. Federal bureaucrats will enforce Obamacare to exterminate the elderly, systematically. We must take a stand.



When the Obama Administration openly punishes Christian and Catholic hospitals, universities, and employers who refuse to dispense abortion pills, they have crossed the line of separation. The government is now abolishing the church with state sword.



1. Obamacare law funds abortion with our tax-dollars, despite President Obama's judicially unenforceable Executive Order that pretends to save the unborn while funding their destruction.

2. Obamacare mandates health-care rationing which creates "death panels" for the elderly by diverting their Medicare funds to young unemployed welfare recipients, and forcing Medicare physicians into bankruptcy.

3. Obamacare creates socialist government-control of 1/6th of the U.S. economy under massive bureaucracies that hurt businesses, cost jobs, and don't care for patients like private doctors do.



Friends, our nation stands in the midst of a spiritual war to save or destroy unborn babies and the elderly. You and I stand in this battle together. We must stand strong!

African American Ministers on VAWA: Stop Putting Women’s Lives in Danger

Washington, DC – Today members of People For the American Way Foundation’s African American Ministers Leadership Council expressed deep concern about the House of Representatives’ failure to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). 

Rev. Brendolyn Jenkins-Boseman of Camden, South Carolina, chair of the African American Ministers Leadership Council, released the following statement:

“Violence against women is an issue that affects everyone in America, but it disproportionately impacts women of color. The 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey found that more than a third of Hispanic women and nearly 44% of black women have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetimes.

“For 18 years, the Violence Against Women Act has helped women across America avoid and combat domestic violence, making the country safer for every American.  Thanks to VAWA, the rate of intimate partner violence fell by 67% between 1993 and 2010.  The bottom line is that it’s an effective, life-saving law. 

“As faith leaders, we feel that it is important to speak out in support of those who are most vulnerable to violence and abuse.  The members of Congress who blocked VAWA aren’t just insulting women; they’re actively putting women’s lives in danger. Congress should act quickly in this new year to reauthorize this critically important program.”

A Math and Reading Comprehension Lesson for David Barton

David Barton's tendency to utterly misrepresent things in order to promote his own right-wing political agenda is well-established, but it never hurts to keep documenting examples, especially since he continues to provide them on a regular basis.

On today's broadcast of "WallBuilders Live," for instance, Barton claimed that the reason President Obama won re-election was because voters "were not thinking right."  And one of the reasons voters don't "think right" is because the higher education system is dominated by Obama supporters, as demonstrated by the fact that, according to Barton, 96% of the professors at Ivy League colleges donated to Obama's campaign:

After the election, we had those two days where we talked about it afterwards and we went through a lot of the numbers just showing that people were not thinking right.  They voted according to what they thought, but they were thinking wrong about so many areas.

And so, if we're going to change the direction of the nation and the way its headed, we have to change the way people think.  It's real simple. 

What are the areas that cause us to think the way we do?  Well, the media is one, education is one, the pulpit is one.  There are several areas that help us shape the way we think.  Now, I will point out, if we're looking for help out of universities, it ain't going to happen.

This is a report that I just read that is kind of amazing: 96% of the faculty at the elite colleges donated to President Obama ... Not just voted; 96% of faculty donated.

So you have 96% of faculty who donated to the Obama campaign; 96% from the elite colleges.  So if we're looking to get help out of the schools, that ain't going to happen.

You will be undoubtedly be surprised to learn that the report to which Barton referred found not that 96% of faculty donated to Obama but rather that 96% of the donations made by faculty and staff from the Ivy League schools went to the Obama campaign.

Think about it: if only one donation was made by a faculty member from a particular university and it went to the Obama campaign, then the percentage of donations coming from that university that went to Obama would be 100%. But that doesn't mean that 100% of the faculty at that university donated to Obama, which is the claim that Barton is making.

Considering that Barton is a former math teacher, you'd think he'd be a little better at math.

Klingenschmitt: Gingrich Under Influence of 'Demonic Voice' for Gay Marriage Statement

It seems that Religious Right anti-gay activist "Chaplain" Gordon Klingenschmitt, perhaps best known for claiming to have freed a lesbian soldier from homosexuality after performing an exorcism on her, has started producing a daily television program that consists of him filming himself talking about the news of the day. 

On episode two of his new series, Klingenschmitt took issue with the recent statement from Newt Gingrich saying that the GOP has to adjust to changing opinions on the issue of marriage equality, claiming that Gingrich is doing so because he is trying to "present himself as the left-wing, moderate Republican candidate" for 2016. 

Klingenschmitt went on to say that since the Bible says that "homosexual acts are worthy of death," Gingrich himself is now condemned for having endorsed it and declares that Gingrich has been influenced by a "demonic voice" in taking this position.

But perhaps the most amazing thing about the video is the revelation that Gingrich personally reached out to Klingenschmitt during his presidential run in 2012 and sought his advice:

Glenn Beck and his Chalkboard Explain Sandy Hook and the Fiscal Cliff

Glenn Beck returned to the airways last night for the first time since before both the "fiscal cliff" deal and the Sandy Hook tragedy and hauled out the chalkboard to lay out his grand theory explaining it all.  He spent an hour rambling about the importance of the reason "why" people do things, going off on tangents about everything from Apple stores to faded t-shirts to fake rust painted on signs at Disney World, all in an effort to explain how both the fiscal cliff situation and the reporting on Sandy Hook were driven by "incompetence, power, and greed" because nobody wants to talk about the real issues, such as how all the Democrats and Republicans in Congress ought to be tried for treason and how video games are turning the nation's children into "zombie killers who are practically dead inside":
