The Absurd Hypocrisy At The Heart Of David Barton's 'School Of Practical Government'

Right-wing pseudo-historian and GOP platform committee member David Barton closed out a presentation last week at Charis Bible College in Colorado, where he is in the process of launching a "School of Practical Government," by sharing a couple of historical quotes that perfectly expose the utterly absurd hypocrisy that lies at the heart of his latest endeavor.

After spending nearly an hour explaining how his "School of Practical Government" will prepare students to seek public office for the purpose of implementing public policy based explicitly on the Bible, Barton read quotes from the likes of Samuel Adams and Benjamin Rush, who have said that those who seek office are not to be trusted and that those who refuse to serve in office when asked are selfish.

First he cited this quote from Adams:

It bodes very ill to Government when Men are exalted to places of high trust through their own Sollicitations.  He only fills a place with Dignity, who is invited to it by his Fellow Citizens, from the Experience they have had of his adequate Abilities, & who does the Duties of it with Zeal & Fidelity ... Whoever interposes in their Elections, with his own Sollicitations for himself, it is to be feard, if he is of any Consequence, will in time become a dangerous Party Man.  He ought therefore to be despised as an obtruder.

Barton then cited a similar quote from Noah Webster:

As a general rule, it may be affirmed that the man who never intrigues for office may be most safely entrusted with office...Such a man cannot desire promotion unless he received it from the respectable part of the community, for he considers no other promotion to be honorable.

It seems rather odd that Barton would cite quotes warning voters not to trust people who seek public office while promoting a school that is designed to teach people how to run for office and even includes a class entitled "How to Run For Office."

To make matters worse, Barton then cited a quote from Rush to argue that if people approach you to ask you to run for office, "you are not allowed to say 'no' because that was being selfish ... Didn't God put you here to serve others? "

Back in 2013, Barton himself was asked by his friends like Glenn Beck to run for the U.S. Senate and refused to do so, though that has somehow not stopped him from regularly lecturing other people that they have no right to be selfish by doing exactly what he did.

Bryan Fischer: 'It's Not Okay For Christians To Have Diverse Opinions'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer recounted a debate he had last week on Twitter with Christian Today writer Andrew Walton over Walton's piece criticizing the newly opened Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky, which was built by the Creationist group Answers in Genesis for the purpose of promoting the organization's fundamentalist view of the Bible.

During his discussion, Fischer took exception to Walton's assertion in his article that Christians "may have diverse opinions on sexual ethics, on life issues, on evolution, on hell, on what role government should play in society, on healthcare, and indeed on science," insisting that, in fact, Christians cannot have opinions on those issues if they differ from Fischer's interpretation of the Bible.

"No, it is not okay for Christians to be all over the map, to have diverse opinions," Fischer insisted. "No, it's not okay. The Bible is abundantly clear about sexual ethics, sex is reserved for marriage, marriage is a union of one man and one woman, homosexuality is a sin, sexual immorality is a sin, et cetera. These things are not ambiguous in the scripture so, no, it's not okay to have diverse opinions on those issues."

"It's not okay to have diverse opinions on life issues," Fischer continued. "It's not okay for Christians to have diverse opinions about evolution."

Savage: 'Straight, Heterosexual, White, Male, Christian' Is The 'Most Oppressed Member Of Society'

Last week, talk radio host Michael Savage continued his attacks on former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson for filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes, the network’s CEO.

He compared defendants in sexual harassment lawsuits to the dissidents who have been persecuted in communist countries like North Korea and mocked “the myth” of “the poor, downtrodden woman” in America.

“What’s this nonsense about ‘oppressed this, oppressed that’?” Savage said on his program on Wednesday. “The most oppressed member of society, as I’ve said before and I’m willing to stand by this again: The most ridiculed, the most oppressed member of society today is the straight, heterosexual, white, male Christian. Period.”

Jesse Lee Peterson: Dems Orchestrated Black Lives Matter Protests To Distract From Hillary's Emails

Conservative activist Jesse Lee Peterson said in an interview on “Breitbart News Saturday” this weekend that Democrats, including the “evil” President Obama, orchestrated recent protests of police killings of black men in order to distract from the controversy over Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while at the State Department.

Matt Boyle, the program’s host, first floated the theory, saying that “professional agitators” including the president, Rev. Al Sharpton and “some of these local organizers” are “whipping up fear and hatred, all designed to then corral that anger into a political force that they can use to win elections.”

Boyle said that it seemed to him that “this was their response to Hillary Clinton coming under serious scrutiny and losing control of the narrative, right, is that they go right back to doing this, which is designed to try to propel her into the White House over Donald Trump.”

“That’s right,” Peterson said, “Hillary Clinton lying about her emails is now out of the news. We’re not talking about that anymore, because if they knew that that could stay in the news, if Americans were reminded that Hillary was a liar and that she cannot be trusted, there’s a big chance that she would not win come November.”

He said that “a lot of black folks” he’d talked to around the country “like Donald Trump.”

“The Democrats know that,” he said, “Barack Obama understands that for the first time they could lose this election with a Clinton, toward a Clinton, and so they don’t want that to happen and that’s why they have to keep her lies out of the media. And, unfortunately, between now and November, it’s going to get worse. We think what happened in Dallas the other day was bad … but it’s going to get worse between now and November, because Barack Obama is an evil man. He has no love in his heart at all. He’s been taught how to manipulate, connive, and how to organize a people in a way where he can control them.”

Sarah Palin: Black Lives Matter Is Racist And 'The Antithesis Of Martin Luther King Jr.'s Message'

Yesterday on “Breitbart News Sunday,” Sarah Palin blamed the murder of five police officers in Dallas on the “intolerant” Black Lives Matter movement, which she said preaches that “one race matters more than another” and “is excluding anyone but someone who happens to be a black America in terms of wanting to protect and respect that person’s life.”

“It’s the antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr.’s message, it’s the antithesis of our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our charters of liberty which says, ‘All men are created equal,’” she said.

“They’re not protesters,” she said of Black Lives Matter supporters, claiming that these “thugs” and “rioters” are “shouting ‘death to cops’ and celebrating violence.”

Palin then, incomprehensibly, said that listeners must “consider this atrocity that is going on right now which is the quashing of or thwarting of America’s law and order as exemplified, as worked out, as manifested by that thin blue line, by our law enforcement and men and women in uniform who are protecting law and order in America, the not peaceful protesters who are up in arms against just, you know, the whole kit and caboodle of all law enforcement right now, as we see in Black Lives Matter, is turning our country into such a volatile and scary place, it is part of that fundamental transformation of America that Barack Obama had promised to do to America, that’s what I came at with my perspective is.”

David Barton Will Train Right-Wing Christians To 'Regain' Control Of Government And Implement Biblical Public Policy

Last week, David Barton spoke at Charis Bible College's "Summer Family Bible Conference" to promote the Seven Mountains based "School of Practical Government" that he is establishing at Andrew Wommack's Charis Bible College in Colorado for the purpose of training right-wing Christians how to take control of all levels of government. 

Barton, who is currently in Cleveland helping to shape the GOP platform ahead of the Republican National Convention, said that Christians must "regain this arena that God has originally given to us." To this end, the main purpose of Barton's school will be to instill in students the proper "biblical worldview" because having the correct biblical worldview is key to implementing biblical public policy. 

People who haven't read the Bible "won't have a clue about marriage, they won't have a clue about abortion, they won't have a clue about God made them male and female, end of story," Barton said, which is why these are "not the kind of people that we want to put in office."

Graduates of Barton's school, on the other hand, will know the Bible verses that set out the proper public policy for everything from the minimum wage to estate taxes.

"You'll know what God says about the capital gains tax," Barton promised, "you'll know what God says about the progressive income tax, you will know what God says about due process rights ... All of these are public policy issues and if you know the position that God has taken on public policy issues, then you get much better policy coming out."

Pat Robertson: Satan Behind Church-State Separation Groups

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who asked if church-state separation groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State “ever fight against any other religions” besides Christianity.

Robertson said that such groups exclusively target Christians because “they understand Christianity is where the power is — the power doesn’t exist in Islam, the power doesn’t exist in Baha’i or any of these fringe religions.”

“They fight against Christianity because Christianity touches the souls of people and the devil regards Christianity as a threat, and of course it is a threat because we’re going to overturn him and his kingdom.”

Theodore Shoebat Says Jesus Is 'Going To Kill All These Sodomites' When He Returns

Last week, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted a video in which he gloated that when Jesus Christ returns, he'll slaughter every single gay person in the world.

Shoebat, who last year was featured alongside several Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential candidates in an anti-gay "documentary," was using an incident in Australia where two men were arrested for sexually abusing a 10-month-old girl to yet again make his case that all gay people should be put to death.

"In a biblical society," Shoebat stated, "every fag would be rounded up and killed. But that's not going to happen, but believe me, when Jesus comes back, Jesus is going to kill all these sodomites. You're going to be praying to be living under a Catholic society from the Middle Ages because when Jesus comes back, it's going to be a lot more brutal."

"He's going to find all you bastards and he's going to slaughter every single one of you," said Shoebat with a smile on his face. "I can't wait for that day to come. It's going to be a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful world."

Tony Perkins Wants The GOP To Endorse Ex-Gay Conversion Therapy

UPDATE: The platform committee passed a resolution affirming “the right of parents to determine the proper treatment or therapy, for their minor children,” a reference to state laws barring ex-gay therapy from being practiced on minors.

The draft platform also calls for the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality to be overturned: “Our laws and our government’s regulations should recognize marriage as the union of one man and one woman and actively promote married family life as the basis of a stable and prosperous society. For that reason, as explained elsewhere in the platform, we do not accept the Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage and we urge its reversal, whether through judicial reconsideration or a constitutional amendment returning control over marriage to states.”

Earlier today, the platform committee of the Republican National Convention considered a number of anti-LGBT resolutions.

Tony Perkins of the far-right Family Research Council, who is serving as an RNC delegate from Louisiana, reportedly proposed an amendment calling for the endorsement of ex-gay “conversion therapy.” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus met with him about the amendment and, according to Time’s Zeke Miller, told him that he missed the deadline but “can bring it up on the floor”:

Perkins is an extremist anti-LGBT activist who has championed sexual orientation conversion therapy, calling it a way for gay people to find “wholeness,” “escape the homosexual lifestyle” and “come out of a lifestyle we know is destructive and harmful.” He also likened the discredited and dangerous practice to saving someone from a burning building .

The Texas GOP endorsed ex-gay therapy in 2014.

The RNC appears to be set to approve a proposal to back anti-trans facility laws like the one passed by North Carolina, which was recently endorsed by Donald Trump.

Ray Comfort: 'You Can't Trust An Atheist In A Position Of Authority'

On Tuesday’s episode of “Janet Mefferd Today,” evangelist Ray Comfort said that atheists can’t be trusted in politics or other positions of authority because they have no “moral high ground.”

After Mefferd claimed that “we don’t have any atheist members of Congress and we’ve never had an atheist president,” Comfort cited the crimes of various communist dictators to claim that atheists should never be given political power.

“Atheists have caused 110 million deaths in the last hundred years,” Comfort said. “Stalin, 60 million, he was an atheist. Mao, 40 million, and he was an atheist. Pol Pot, 1.7 million, he was an atheist. Vladimir Lenin, 5 million people slaughtered, he was an atheist. And so when people realize that, you can’t trust an atheist in a position of authority, especially politically. They may be nice people when you meet them in the street, but you give them power to do what they want and carry out their own agendas and you’re gonna find that they don’t have any moral high ground to stand on ‘cause they’re not standing on any whatsoever.”

Grassley Is Deliberately Obstructing Judicial Confirmations, Anti-Choice Lobbyist Confirms

A prominent anti-abortion lobbyist acknowledged this weekend that Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is deliberately slow-walking President Obama's federal judicial nominees at all levels in order to keep seats on the courts open for the next president to fill.

Douglas Johnson, the legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee, said on Saturday at his group's convention in Virginia that "the left is quite unhappy with the number of nominations that have not come to a vote in the Senate." This, he said approvingly, is because Grassley and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have "moved with very deliberate speed on those nominations and it's safe to predict that there will be quite a number of vacant seats on the federal courts, including that Supreme Court vacancy, when the election rolls around."

"There certainly would be a lot more Obama-nominated federal judges if the Senate had remained in Democrat hands," he said.

Grassley has denied that he is slow-walking federal judicial nominations, despite ample evidence to the contrary, telling The Des Moines Register in April that he is simply following the practice of Democrats and Republicans alike.

Johnson particularly praised Grassley and McConnell for blockading the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to fill the Supreme Court seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

After Scalia died, he said, "the Senate majority leader reached out to senators all across the country and the world and indicated that what they had to do is take a hard line that this seat was not going to be filled by Barack Obama in the last year of his presidency, that who fills this seat was going to be determined by the person selected to be president by the American people in November. And they agreed to that."

McConnell, he said, "knew what had to be done."

"This made a difference," he said. "If this had been a Democrat Senate, possibly even been a Republican Senate under different leadership, that seat would have been long since filled."

He added that he was disappointed that the Senate's obstruction of the Garland nomination hadn't stopped a victory for abortion rights in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, but noted that it "has been decisive on some other important matters."

James Bopp: Trump The Only Choice Against '100 Percent Evil' Hillary Clinton

James Bopp, the general counsel of the National Right to Life Committee, who has been the brains behind the dismantling of campaign finance reforms and a driving force in the effort to chip away at abortion rights with incremental legal victories, urged abortion rights opponents to vote for Donald Trump last week, saying that Hillary Clinton as president would be “100 percent evil.”

Speaking to a small group at the National Right to Life Committee’s convention outside of Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Bopp said that the vacancy on the Supreme Court and possible upcoming vacancies give conservatives and abortion rights opponents a “really big stake” in the presidential election.

In politics, he said, “You have two choices. You have to compare the choices. You don’t examine just one and say, ‘Well, I don’t like that so I’m just not going to vote for it.’”

“I think there’s only one conclusion you can come to” in the presidential race, he said, saying that “as flawed as people may think the Republican candidate is,” Clinton “will be 100 percent evil. She will never make a correct decision on anything.”

The four moderate justices on the current Supreme Court, he said, display “unthinking, reflexive voting based on policy results,” which he called “chilling.”

“Five, six, seven of these liberal judges voting in lockstep, mindlessly voting in lockstep to impose every liberal policy agenda that they can think of is what we have at stake” in the election, he said.

Citing an article in The Atlantic by law professor Erwin Chemerinsky, Bopp warned, “These people have crazy, nutty ideas and they’re going to use their bloc to do it.”

On abortion, he warned, a more liberal court could rewrite the Roe v. Wade decision on gender discrimination grounds and “what that would mean is that every limitation, every restriction, every condition on abortions will be illegal. Every one. All of them.”

The anti-abortion movement is regrouping after the Supreme Court struck down unnecessary regulations on Texas abortion clinics in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. Bopp acknowledged this, saying that the standard for new anti-abortion laws is “What will [Justice Anthony] Kennedy accept post the Texas abortion case?”

He suggested that anti-abortion legislators and lawyers could turn their attention to 20-week abortion bans, “dismemberment abortion” bans or restrictions such as ultrasound requirements that Kennedy’s previous rulings have indicated that he might accept.

What Kennedy will do, he said, “is really based on the individual circumstances that would be presented in the future,” noting that the circumstances of the Texas case were “somewhat extreme” in the number of clinics that shut down after the law was passed, although he said the clinic shutdowns were merely correlated with, not caused by, the Texas law.

This Is Not The Same Chuck Grassley

With Election Day just four months away, Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley finds himself in a statistical tie in the race to keep his Iowa Senate seat, leading his opponent, former Iowa Lt. Gov. Patty Judge, by only a single percentage point.

For 30 years, Grassley has never had an electoral challenger come within 30 percentage points of defeating him. This year is different because Iowa voters believe Grassley has changed.

A perusal of his Senate record clearly demonstrates that Grassley is no longer the senator who Iowa voters returned to Washington five times. While he is now leading the politically motivated effort to block the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, for much of his career, Grassley used the confirmation processes as an opportunity to call for his colleagues to look to their bigger selves and the country.  

His philosophy was clearly laid out after President George H.W. Bush appointed Clarence Thomas to the nation’s highest court in 1991. Grassley took to the Senate floor a little more than a week after the nomination, telling his colleagues:

While the Constitution gives the President the principle role in selecting judges for the Federal courts, including the Supreme Court, our role is to ensure that the candidates have the intellect, integrity, and temperament to serve in that high capacity particularly the high capacity of the Supreme Court. No, we are not here to be a rubber stamp for the President's nominations, but our inquiry should be focused on the nominee's objective qualifications.

Today, Grassley’s arguments against even holding hearings on Garland’s confirmation have nothing to do with the “nominee’s objective qualifications,” but instead are purely political.

As Thomas’ hearings began, Grassley even complained that the Senate’s process for examining a lifetime appointee had grown too burdensome:

In response to the Committee's request for certain documents, Judge Thomas has provided, I have been told, some 36,000 pages of documents, and I understand that it has been cataloged in some 10 boxes of documents. . . . This document request is just an example of how far the Senate has strayed in the nomination process.

He also questioned the length of the process:

When Justice White was nominated, just 29 years ago, he came to this Judiciary Committee and was asked only eight questions. What has changed to require all these long hearings over the last quarter century? Well, something has lengthened the process, and to some extent I feel it has been lengthened needlessly.

In 1991, when Grassley complained about the process being “lengthened needlessly,” it took the Senate 99 days to confirm Thomas. Garland was nominated 117 days ago.

As the Thomas nomination reached the Senate floor, Grassley attempted to persuade his colleagues that the process of confirming judges could advance a higher American ideal:

It has been asserted that this, too, was part of our democratic system. But I hope that there is a way to restore ourselves and the American people the ideals of representative democracy, ideals that brought down the Berlin Wall, that inspired the student revolt in Tiananmen Square, and that sustained Boris Yeltsin in his standoff with the coup plotters.

I believe we can do it, that we must do it, and I urge my colleagues to confirm Judge Thomas as one step in that direction.

Today, Grassley is engaging in an absurd level of obstruction and abandoning long-held principles, serving only to sow chaos in the Senate, and certainly not living up to the “ideals of representative democracy.”

Of course, there are numerous factors dragging down Grassley’s poll numbers — most notably President Obama’s popularity in Iowa and Donald Trump’s place at the top of the GOP ticket. But Grassley faces not only an electorate in which 64 percent support hearings for Garland, but also voters who do not recognize the man they have sent to the Senate for four decades.

PFAW Hosts Member Telebriefing on the SCOTUS Term

As the Supreme Court session wrapped up for the term, PFAW hosted a member telebriefing on Thursday to analyze the impact of the term's decisions and to look towards the future of the Court overall. The latest term was atypical in a number of ways, from the death of Justice Antonin Scalia to Republican senators’ unprecedented and unconstitutional refusal to consider Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination, leaving the Court with only eight justices to decide cases. 

On the call were PFAW’s Executive Vice President Marge Baker, Communications Director Drew Courtney, Senior Legislative Counsel Paul Gordon, and Senior Fellow Elliot Mincberg, who discussed the Republicans' blockade of the Garland nomination, the impact of the court being forced to operate with only eight justices for a significant portion of the term, and the future of the Supreme Court in coming years, with three of the current justices soon to be over the age of 80. They also fielded questions from members around the country, unpacking the outcomes of cases such as Fisher v. University of Texas, Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, U.S. v. Texas and others.

Mincberg said that “this term turned out very differently” than many expected because of two primary reasons: Justice Scalia’s passing, and Justice Kennedy joining the moderate justices in decisions on cases such as Fisher.  Baker stressed that “we need a full Court” in order for the Supreme Court to work effectively and encouraged members to speak out about the issue. She also emphasized that “it does make a difference to vote,” and that Americans need to have their voices heard by their representatives about the Court.

Glenn Beck, Who Mocked Congress For Apologizing For Slavery, Now Says America Needs Racial Reconciliation

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that America still has a race problem because this nation never had any sort of reconciliation for its history of oppression of African Americans.

The civil rights movement was not enough because "we never reconciled" as a nation, Beck said, adding that we can't just stop doing bad things and then move forward as if those things never happened.

"You have to reconcile and stop and say, 'I am sorry for these things,'" Beck said, "ask for forgiveness of those you have hurt. The country never stopped and said, 'Wow, that was wrong.' Let's reach back out and say, 'Let me listen to you now' and I'll apologize, not for everything that I've done, but what you're feeling is valid and I'm sorry for any role that any of us played. I didn't play a role in that but I want to hear you out and the country needs to say, 'I'm sorry for that.'"

Back in 2008, when the House of Representatives passed a resolution apologizing for slavery and Jim Crow, Beck mocked it on his radio show and called it an affront "to the principles of Christianity."

Brad Thor: 'Black Lives Matter Ought To Be Labeled A Terrorist Organization'

Glenn Beck dedicated most of his radio broadcast today to discussing the shooting of several police officers during a peaceful Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas last night. At one point, Beck interviewed right-wing author Brad Thor, who declared that the Black Lives Matter movement must be demonized and labeled a terrorist organization in response to this attack.

Thor declared that progressives and President Obama are intentionally creating the false impression that "it's open season on young black men by cops" for the purpose of sowing division and discord. 

Most police officers are decent people who care about their communities, Thor said, but "these stories where there is a shooting get unbelievable attention."

"I think the problem here is that the progressives love to divide people because that's how they conquer the country," he declared. "They divide people, put them into victim groups or put them into groups and convince the groups they can't talk to each other; this group is set against you, this one is set against you and all that kind of stuff. So what we're seeing is the progressives have been incredibly successful in this country dividing us and that's why we need to be focused on on the truth. We need more people standing up and demonizing a group like Black Lives Matter that calls for the killing of police. At this point, I think Black Lives Matter ought to be labeled a terrorist organization."

J. Christian Adams Compares Obama Administration To Dallas Police Assailant

Earlier today, conservative activist and former Justice Department attorney J. Christian Adams appeared on “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” where he discussed last night’s shooting of several law enforcement officers in Dallas.

When Rios asked Adams if he thinks President Obama will ask the Justice Department to investigate the events in Dallas just as they were asked to investigate the recent shootings of black men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana, Adams dismissed Obama’s condemnation of the Dallas attack and compared the administration’s actions to those of the suspected shooter or shooters.

Rios: Now the DOJ is rushing, the Department of Civil Rights, is rushing to Minnesota, I believe also to Baton Rouge, to investigate the shooting of these two black men, two more incidents in the last couple of days here. Will they rush to Dallas?

Adams: Well, not for anything good. I mean, Obama called the shooting in Dallas today a ‘calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement.’ Well, I think that’s exactly the same sort of thing his Justice Department has been engaged in. Not using weapons, of course, but using the power of the federal government to engage in a despicable and calculated attack on law enforcement for the last seven years. So now, I don’t think he’s going to rush to Dallas. Not to do anything good, at least.

Adams and Rios, while admitting that they didn’t know who was responsible the attack, also wildly speculated about who was behind the ambush, wondering aloud if the shooting was the result of the work of the New Black Panther Party or Black Lives Matter activists or George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Adams insisted that the killing was part of “a coordinated, deliberate strategy to destabilize the moral authority of the United States, using the cloak of race,” which he described as a spiritually evil and wicked plot to “tear at the fabric of the country.”

Black Lives Matter activists, Rios said, simply don’t understand that “they are being stirred into a frenzy by people who are thinking about how to undermine and destroy the very fabric of this country. That’s what’s driving this. It has nothing to do with race. They’re using race — they’re using anything they can: Islamophobia, homophobia, whatever, to stir up dissention and destruction.”

Alex Jones: George Soros Engineered Dallas Attack To Launch A Race War

InfoWars network host Alex Jones claimed today that liberal philanthropist George Soros engineered the murder of several law enforcement officers in Dallas as part of his nefarious plot to divide and destroy the U.S.

Jones, an outspoken ally of Donald Trump, said that Soros is pushing for a “Marxist overthrow of the United States” because “through the destabilization, an even bigger police state will come into control that the social engineers believe they’ll be able to hijack.”

Jones went on to claim that Black Lives Matter activists exaggerate allegations of police brutality in order to justify “a takeover of the policy by the globalists,” who he believes will turn police officers into “oppressors” in a future “reign of terror.”

Left-wing activists, he said, are “starting a race war” to distract people from what he called the real threats to the black community: abortion rights and black-on-black crime.

He then challenged law enforcement to go after the “freakazoid, weirdo, Nazi-collaborator” Soros:

Are you such big wimps, all the state police, all the local police, the FBI, everybody, that you’d let this son of a bitch, this piece of crap, mess with our media, mess with our country and engage in destabilization like this? I’m willing stand up against him! These people are orchestrating something that’s meant to bring the country down, starting with making the revolution about killing police so that it destroys the whole constabulary so the globalists can come in with their control. It’s that simple. This is the attack takedown of America and George Soros shouldn’t be out and walking around. He sure shouldn’t be in this country anymore. They’ve got arrests warrants out for him in Russia and half a dozen other countries. He needs to get his ass out of this country now.

Glenn Beck: God Sending Chaos Because 'We Still Vote For Unrighteousness'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck was asked by an audience member what the future holds for America, which prompted Beck to reply with a long story about the time when he said that God stopped talking to him for several weeks.

As Beck told it, he had been prompted by God years before the 2008 economic crisis to warn that a collapse was coming. When Lehman Brothers collapsed but the economic catastrophe that Beck had been predicting did not immediately follow, Beck angrily lashed out at God for having ruined his reputation.

In response, God stopped talking to Beck for several weeks until Beck humbled himself and begged for forgiveness, at which point God told him to "build the framework of hope," which terrified Beck because it was a sign that "what's coming is bad."

And now that warning is coming true. 

"I think we're here," Beck said. "What's coming? Trouble. Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble. What's coming? Consequences. God's our dad. He's told us don't do these things. He's begged us, he's given us every opportunity and we still vote for unrighteousness ...  Consequences are coming and we can't be like little children that say, 'Wait, why are you punishing us?' He's not punishing us, he's allowing the natural consequences to happen to us."

President Obama and the progressives have worked to make conservatives feel powerless, Beck said, but that is all part of God's plan to help the people who "are going to save the nation, save the world, save freedom" to realize that "God is in control and God will see us through."

Oath Keepers Calls For Establishment Of Militias In Response To Dallas Ambush

Stewart Rhodes, the founder of the Oath Keepers, responded today to last night’s sniper ambush of police officers near a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas by calling for “patriotic Americans” to “go armed at all times” and “reestablish the militia system.”

Rhodes wrote on the Oath Keepers website that the shooting was the product of “the Marxist agenda to divide and conquer along racial lines and inspire blind hatred against all police, and against this nation in general,” warning that it would be used to “further militarize” the police and “trample on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

Tying the shooting in Dallas to the attack on an Orlando gay nightclub by an ISIS-inspired terrorist, Rhodes wrote that what “is now needed, more than ever, is the reestablishment of the militia of the people, trained, equipped and organized in each town, to defend against what is now clearly a ‘Tet Offensive’ American style.”

Therefore, I call on all Oath Keepers, and all patriotic Americans, to come to the aid of their local police, and to the aid of their communities, and unite and coordinate in mutual defense against this orchestrated campaign of Marxist terrorism, which is the modern version of the wave of terrorism we saw in the late 60s and early 70s by the Marxist Weather Underground and related groups (who also frequently targeted police), along with the closely related Jihadist terrorism offensive, with Orlando being merely the latest in an ongoing wave of attacks. What is now needed, more than ever, is the reestablishment of the militia of the people, trained, equipped and organized in each town, to defend against what is now clearly a “Tet Offensive” American style, as Navy SEAL veteran Matt Bracken warned. While we work to reestablish that militia system, you must go armed at all times, and be prepared, at all times, to defend your community against these Marxist terrorists as well as their Islamist terror allies. Remember, they are in league, and you are their common enemy and their common targets.

The power elites who control, aid, abet and fund these terrorists will attempt to use these attacks to further destroy what little is left of our Constitution, but the one thing they do not want, and the one thing they truly fear, is for We the People, who are still armed, to come together and restore the militia of the several states. And the elites’ terrorist proxies among the Marxists and Islamacists also fear such a revitalization and restoration. So, let’s do what our enemies all fear most. Let us resurrect and restore the militia system of this nation, which the Founders told us is necessary for the security of a free state, and which must consist of ALL of the able bodied citizens of your community. It is time to finally get down to doing what is necessary. It starts with you and your neighbors coming together, now, to address this grave threat, and for you to lead them toward the only constitutional solution – the revitalization of the militia.
