Glenn Beck

Another Glenn Beck Prediction Comes 'True'

Last week, Glenn Beck spent a good part of one of his programs warning his audience that the world was possibly on the verge of a global Ebola pandemic once the virus mutates into an airborne disease that would be brought into the United States by Nigerian prison guards working in Texas.

Yesterday, officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that someone who had recently flown from Liberia to Dallas has been diagnosed with the disease and is now in quarantine.

So naturally, Beck is now taking a victory lap, declaring on his radio program that his warning has been proven correct.

Fuming that he had been mocked for his warning, Beck wanted to know "how many times do you have to be right" before people will listen to you, insisting that other than the infected patient having come from Liberia and not Nigeria, "everything else I had right."

Beck then warned his audience, utterly without irony, to "stop listening to people who are telling you things that continue to be wrong":

Beck warned that airborne Ebola would would be brought into America by Nigerian prison workers. Instead, one traveler from Liberia has been diagnosed and quarantined, yet Beck insists that his prediction has been proven true while fuming that people dare to mock him despite his exemplary record of being right.

Let us remind Beck of his amazing record:

Remember when Beck repeatedly warned that President Obama was seeking to foment a race-based civil war? Or when he warned that the administration was trying to take away guns in order to impose slavery and carry out mass killings? Or when he told his audience to prepare because President Obama was about to snap and start putting them all in internment camps? Or when he told them to start hoarding cash because the government was going to seize their bank accounts, just like in Cyprus?

Remember when he warned that a shooting at the Dallas airport was almost certainly a false flag operation carried out by Occupy Wall Street to press for gun confiscation? Let's not forget his prediction that undocumented children crossing the southern border would lead to an Israel/Palestine-type conflict in America. What about the time Beck warned that military action in Syria was designed to create a one world government? Or his assertion that efforts were underway to outlaw homeschooling in America?

Anyone recall his theory that the missing Malaysian airplane had been hijacked so that it could be "cloaked" and then flown into the United States in a terrorist attack? Or his fears that supposedly missing planes in Libya would be used to destroy the global economy?

And who can forget the days after the Boston Marathon bombing that Beck spent explicitly asserting that one of the injured victims was, in fact, responsible for carrying out the attack, because of which statements he is now being sued for defamation?

Instead of asking "how many times do you have to be right" for people to trust your warnings, we'd ask how many times Beck is allowed to be totally wrong while still insisting that he is consistently proven right?

Who Does Glenn Beck Really Stand With: Russian Gays Or America's Religious Right?

Shortly after Russia passed its new spate of anti-gay laws, Glenn Beck said he was so offended by one Russian commentator who called for the mass killing of gays and lesbians that he would “stand with GLAAD” against the growing tide of anti-gay bigotry and “hetero-fascism” in the country.

At the same time, however, Beck was heaping praise on anti-gay activists such as Mat Staver, the Liberty Counsel attorney who endorsed draconian anti-gay laws in Russia and Malawi.

Then, this weekend, Beck took the same stand against growing Russian “hetero-fascism” in his closing speech at the Values Voter Summit, even though many of the summit’s sponsors and his fellow speakers have openly backed harsh anti-gay laws in Russia and throughout the world.

To begin with, Tony Perkins, the president of the summit’s chief sponsor, the Family Research Council, defended Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill when it included provisions making homosexuality a crime punishable by life imprisonment or death.

Beck’s fellow Values Voter Summit speakers included not only Staver and Perkins but also Peter Sprigg, the FRC spokesman who called for the U.S. to export gay people and criminalize homosexuality. The American Family Association also sponsored the summit, and its spokesmen Bryan Fischer and Sandy Rios have also endorsed Russia’s anti-gay policies, with Fischer even backing Uganda’s law.

Maybe Beck was trying to hold Religious Right leaders at the summit to task for their support of brutal anti-gay policies. But if that’s the case, Beck should start confronting them directly when they come on his show, rather than singing their praises and appearing at their conferences while calling policies they support “fascist.”

Paranoia-Rama: Obama Is Helping 'His ISIS Buddies,' Introducing 'National Socialism' And Persecuting Conservatives

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

While he isn’t busy persecuting conservative activists, President Obama spends his time helping ISIS fighters avoid airstrikes…that he himself ordered. At least, that’s what we learned this week in the alternate reality of the far-right.

5. Stop Persecuting Tony Perkins, Says Tony Perkins

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has made it quite clear that he believes anti-gay activists like himself will soon be forced into the “boxcars” that will be “hauling off Christians” to concentration camps, and he has kept up the warnings of impending persecution while discussing the FRC’s Values Voter Summit, which starts today.

In a fundraising appeal to FRC supporters this week, Perkins warned that “American democracy simply cannot survive” the attacks coming from “far Left activists and the radical homosexual lobby.” Oh his “Washington Watch” radio show, he recounted the purported ways that Democrats and progressive groups are trying to “silence” him and overturn the First Amendment.

4. Dinesh D’Souza Is Also Being Persecuted, Of Course

After switching his plea from not guilty to guilty for making illegal campaign donations, a felony, conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced to eight months probation in a community confinement center along with psychological therapy. The sentencing prompted yet another media tour for D’Souza, who insisted that his prosecution for breaking the law — which he admitted to doing — amounts to political persecution.

D’Souza boasted in an interview with WorldNetDaily that the government was not “successful in shutting me up,” and the conservative activist told Glenn Beck that the prosecution came at the orders from the “petty” President Obama. Beck even said that D’Souza “is a political prisoner,” despite the fact that D’Souza was not sentenced to any prison time.

3. ‘National Socialism’ a-Comin’

Sen. Pat Roberts is doing whatever it takes to salvage his foundering re-election campaign, and this week he alleged that, as a result of President Obama’s time in office, “our country is heading for national socialism.”

Roberts defended his remarks by explaining that Obama wants to turn the U.S. into “a European socialistic state,” adding: “You can’t tell me anything that he has not tried to nationalize.”

And if rhetoric like that doesn’t work, Roberts will shore up his standing with the Tea Party crowd with the help of his latest booster: Sarah Palin.

2. People Who Believe In Climate Change Are Just Like Hitler

Rush Limbaugh knows the real reason people believe that human activities are influencing climate change. No, not because there is a consensus among climate scientists on the matter, but as Limbaugh explains, “it’s all politics.”

“It is a politics that intentionally insults the intelligence of people and preys on the dumb and the stupid and the weak,” Limbaugh said while definitely not projecting. In order to find “meaning in their lives,” Limbaugh explained, people start thinking they have the power to “save the planet” and start to feel “their new life has meaning” and that “they can make a difference.”

And you know who else thought he could make a difference with his life? Hitler.

“Hitler made a difference,” he said. “Stop and think about that.”

1. Obama Is Shielding ISIS While Bombing Them

Conservatives are having a difficult time rationalizing the fact that President Obama has launched hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS and other extremist groups while at the same time insisting that he is a secret Muslim and terrorist sympathizer.

Tom DeLay, for instance, said that Obama is doing nothing to stop ISIS and “ought to wear a pink t-shirt because he is an anti-war president,” while Rick Wiles wondered if Obama is protecting “his ISIS buddings” and has possibly tipped them off to U.S. airstrike targets.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer had his own take, arguing that the Obama administration is deliberately trying to hit empty buildings and minimize casualties among the ISIS ranks.

15 Values Voter Summit Speakers Who Think The US Is Becoming Nazi Germany

At the Values Voter Summit, which begins this Friday, Republican politicians and Religious Right leaders will come together to rebuke President Obama, attack the gay community and decry the current state of affairs in the U.S.

Subtlety and nuance aren’t this crowd’s strong suits. In fact, it wasn’t that hard for us to come up with a list of at least 15 scheduled summit speakers and panelists who believe that America has gotten so bad under Obama’s leadership that the country has become just like Nazi Germany.

1. Tony Perkins

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins thinks that gay rights supporters are bent on ushering in an anti-Christian holocaust. When are LGBT activists “going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?” he asked in June.

Soon afterwards, Perkins said a caller on his “Washington Watch” radio show “hit the nail on the head” when she claimed Christians in America are about to be “loaded in cattle cars like it was when the Nazis took over.”

2. Mike Huckabee

Former governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee agreed last year that it was “the truth” that bills introduced to prevent gun violence are just like what happened in Nazi Germany. “[T]hey’ll start saying, ‘Oh there you go comparing to the Nazis.’ And I understand the reaction, but it’s the truth,” Huckabee said. “In every society and culture where dictators take over, one of the things they have to do is get control of the military and the police and ultimately all of the citizens and make sure the citizens are disarmed and can’t fight in the streets.”

Huckabee has also claimed that the legalization of same-sex marriage will compel Christians to defy the government in order to uphold their religious beliefs, just like people who aided Jews broke the law during the Holocaust : “It was ‘illegal’ to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. But I am sure that if I had lived in Germany during that time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers even though it was illegal.”

3. Sandy Rios

American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios said last year that the “War on Christmas” is driving Christians underground and oppressing religious expression: “This is exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany.”

4. Glenn Beck

Unsurprisingly, Glenn Beck is pretty sure that “we are Germany 1930.” Earlier this year, Beck agreed with venture capitalist Tom Perkins that billionaires in America are just like Jews under Nazi oppression and said that officials like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are aspiring concentration camp guards. He has also predicted that the government will “scoop up” Tea Party members and “be remembered as the most evil nation in the history of the world, we will dwarf what Germany did.”

Beck predicts that President Obama is on the verge of breaking down, at which point he will “round up” conservatives and “put them in a camp.”

5. Jerry Boykin

Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin accused President Obama of reviving Hitler’s Brownshirts through the health care reform law.

“Remember Hitler had the Brownshirts and in the Night of the Long Knives, even Hitler got scared of the Brownshirts and killed thousands of them. So you say ‘are there any signs that that’s happened?’ And the truth is, yes,” Boykin said in 2010. “If you read the health care legislation which, by the way nobody in Washington has read, but if you read the health care legislation it’s actually in the health care legislation…. It's laying the groundwork for a constabulary force that will control the population in America.”

6. Michele Bachmann

At a campaign stop in New Hampshire during her presidential bid, Bachmann said that government inaction on the national debt reminded her of the world’s silence in the midst of the Holocaust. “We are seeing eclipsed in front of our eyes a similar death and a similar taking away. It is this disenfranchisement that I think we have to answer to,” she said.

Bachmann has also accused the Obama administration of setting up “reeducation camps for young people” through service-oriented programs like AmeriCorps.

In 2012, Bachmann alleged that the administration was “aiding and abetting” an Islamist plot to take over America and the rest of the world, calling on people to read about the Islamic “belief system” and find out “what they truly believe” just like how “the most important thing a person could do in World War II during that conflict was to read the book that the leader of Germany wrote.”

7. Jim Bob Duggar

In a speech to the 2013 Values Voter Summit, Jim Bob Duggar said his visit to Nazi concentration camps reminded him of the U.S., saying that the Holocaust is “where we are at in our nation.” When asked by reporters about his statement, Duggar said that America is experiencing “a baby holocaust.”

8. Todd Starnes

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes said last year that the so-called “War on Christmas” and purported acts of anti-Christian persecution under the Obama administration made him wonder if he was living in the U.S. or Nazi Germany: “This is not 1930s Germany, gentlemen, this is the United States of America, and unless people of faith stand up and put a stop to this, we very well could be facing a 1930s Germany here.”

9. Mat Staver

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel believes that the U.S. under President Obama’s leadership is now actually worse than Nazi Germany. He said this month that the Obama administration surpassed Nazi Germany’s crimes by “forcing” people to “participate in a genocide” through the contraceptive coverage mandate. He has also repeatedly argued that legal abortion is the same as the Holocaust.

Earlier this year, Staver drew a Nazi analogy while demanding that conservatives more strongly oppose gay marriage: “This is not an issue in which you can remain silent any more than you can remain silent during Nazi Germany.”

10. Louie Gohmert

Texas congressman Louie Gohmert — who early on in Obama’s term agreed with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ predictions that the president would introduce policies reminiscent of Hitler — took to the House floor in May to accuse gay rights advocates of treating their opponents in the same way that the Nazis demonized the people they oppressed:

So it is amazing that in the name of liberality, in the name of being tolerant, this fascist intolerance has arisen. People that stand up and say, you know, I agree with the majority of Americans, I agree with Moses and Jesus that marriage was a man and a woman, now all of a sudden, people like me are considered haters, hate mongers, evil, which really is exactly what we've seen throughout our history as going back to the days of the Nazi takeover in Europe. What did they do? First, they would call people "haters" and "evil" and build up disdain for those people who held those opinions or religious views or religious heritage. And then the next came, well, those people are so evil and hateful, let's bring every book that they've written or has to do with them and let's start burning the books, because we can't tolerate their intolerance.

11. Mark Levin

Conservative talk radio show host Mark Levin claimed last year that President Obama was organizing a Brownshirt paramilitary to defend and promote the Affordable Care Act. “All they need is special uniforms,” Levin said of Obamacare supporters. “Learn how to march and salute and carry flags. I think brown would be good, you know, Brownshirts.”

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Levin said then-presidential candidate Obama was “really into these big German-like events” reminiscent of the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

12. Ed Vitagliano

After the 2008 election, the American Family Association’s Ed Vitagliano urged the organization’s members to pray for President Obama just as one would pray for Adolf Hitler to veer away from his wicked ways. He especially urged his readers to pray to block Obama’s “plans to push both abortion and the gay agenda.”

“Obama is like Hitler because, while Hitler primarily slaughtered the Jews in the Holocaust, Obama’s support for abortion is similarly evil,” Vitagliano said. “Now I think the moral equivalency of the Holocaust and abortion is a good, defensible argument. Both objectified a category of human beings and then took horrifying steps to pursue their murder. The depths of evil connected to the Holocaust and abortion are equally difficult to comprehend.”

13. Harry Jackson

Religious right activist and preacher Harry Jackson said in 2012 that the success of “radical gay activists” was turning America into Nazi Germany:

They want to impose their will on the culture and if you cannot reproduce you may try to recruit, and what I mean by that is what is going on is an attempt to reshape, refashion the mind, hearts and desires of the next generation. Many Christians are sitting back and we aren’t speaking out, but the reality is just like during the times of Hitler we have people coming after one group after another group after another group, and folks are saying, well this doesn’t affect me I’ll let this slide, we have a problem that really we have a whole generation of people who want to affect not only their lives and choices but the choices of another generation.

14. Rick Santorum

After losing his 2012 presidential bid, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum became a Christian film producer, and he recently unveiled a new movie called “One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty.” Santorum’s latest film depicts the U.S. in a dire state eerily similar to Nazi Germany, warning that America’s transformation into a tyrannical, Nazi state will be complete thanks to the silence of conservative Christians. You can get some of the flavor of the film from its trailer, which includes footage of Germany in the 1930s.

While campaigning against for president, Santorum also told a church gathering that people should get involved in his bid to defeat Obama just as the Greatest Generation fought the spread of Nazism.

15. Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz launched his faux-filibuster against Obamacare by arguing that refusing to fight the implementation of the health care reform law was just like appeasing Adolf Hitler, and people who didn't support his plans to stop the law were like Neville Chamberlain.

As Jon Stewart explains, “Ted Cruz says we’re at Defcon Nazi.”

 

'It's Really Sick': Glenn Beck Says Dinesh D'Souza Is 'A Political Prisoner'

Dinesh D'Souza is now basically taking a victory lap around conservative media outlets after having avoided a prison sentence for violating campaign finance laws, appearing on Glenn Beck's radio show today to assert that he was directly targeted by President Obama because Obama is "a petty, vindictive guy."

D'Souza insisted that he was only prosecuted for breaking the law because President Obama lashes out at all of his critics because "he is a very dysfunctional guy with a very dysfunctional family. I mean, he's got family members who have each other followed, they spread rumors and try to undermine each other, they hire people to look out and so this is a very bizarre situation and Obama is a very petty, vindictive guy."

"I don't have to speculate that he doesn't like me, I know that," D'Souza asserted, "and it's hard for me to believe that [the government was] treating me normally, like any other guy who did this."

Glenn Beck agreed, declaring that D'Souza was "the first real political prisoner that I have seen this president make."

"This is a political prisoner, make no mistake," Beck said. "He was only prosecuted, they only found this stuff because they were going through everything to stop him. And it's sick. It's really sick":

Glenn Beck Literally Stands Up And Applauds Parents Who Are Refusing To Have Their Children Vaccinated

During yesterday's morning staff meeting, Glenn Beck reacted to a report that vaccination rates in wealthy California neighborhoods have dropped dramatically, resulting in a resurgence of disease like whooping cough and measles, by literally standing up and applauding parents who are refusing to have their children vaccinated.

"I think that there is a lot of be said for being cautious on what we are jamming into our children's arms by law, all the time," Beck said, insisting that he is not against all vaccinations but simply objects to the arrogance of doctors and the government telling people they must get vaccinated.

"Whenever you put medication in your body," he said, "there is an equal and opposite. It happens. You're putting it in to fix this organ or to fix this flaw, it's going to push something else out of the way."

When Beck's executive producer, Tiffany Siegel, pointed out that this drop in vaccinations is leading to outbreaks of contagious disease and sometimes resulting in death, Beck was not overly concerned.

"It seems like we have an outbreak of Ebola," Beck said dismissively. "Disease is going to come. I'm not saying that we don't use modern medicine. I'm not saying that I'm against all vaccinations. I'm saying that we consider the arrogance of doctors and governments jamming needles in our arms and our children's arms and forcing us to do these things."

"There's a balance in all things," he concluded:

Glenn Beck's Self-Serving And Incoherent Standard Of Anti-Gay 'Hate'

As we have noted several times before, Glenn Beck seems to make a very self-serving distinction between strangers who hold anti-gay views and are therefore bigots and haters and other people who hold those exact same views but just so happen to be Beck's friends, in which case they are amazing uniters and a true force for good.

Nothing better demonstrates this disconnect that a segment from Beck's radio show today where he praised students at James Madison University for responding to an anti-gay preacher on campus by singing a hymn.

The preacher, according to Beck, was telling the students that they are all sinners who hate Jesus and were destined for Hell.  Eventually, the students began singing a hymn, which drowned out the preacher, and Beck was positively giddy.

"This is a perfect example of you do not defeat hate with hate," Beck said. "You defeat it with love."

The question, then, is just what was this preacher saying that was so "hateful" by Beck's standard? And how does anything he said in any way differ than the things that David Barton, Mat Staver, Tony Perkins, or any other Religious Right leader says every single day?

The same person who posted the video of the students singing also posted another video of the preacher before he was drown out and, to our ears, there was nothing said by him that we don't hear literally dozens of times every single day from all manner of Religious Right activists:

Next week, Beck is going to be speaking at the annual Values Voter Summit, which is hosted by a handful of anti-gay organizations, including The Family Research Council, the American Family Association, American Values, and Liberty Counsel, and which regularly features dozens of anti-gay activists as speakers.

So again, what differentiates what this campus preacher said, which Beck qualifies as unmitigated "hate," from what the people with whom Beck is eager to stand at the Values Voter Summit say every single day on their right-wing radio programs?

If there is a coherent explanation of what separates this preacher from, say, the Benham Brothers or Mat Staver or David Barton, all of whom Beck adores, we'd love to hear it.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 9/16/14

  • Glenn Beck will be speaking at the Values Voter Summit again this year.
  • According to CBN's David Brody, just about every leading GOP presidential hopeful supports legislation "that would ban abortions in America after twenty weeks."
  • This is the actual title of Phyllis Schlafly's latest radio commentary: "Attacks on Religious Freedom Remind Us of Vietnam."
  • Bryan Fischer seems to think that Ray Rice has a good chance of being reinstated by the NFL because his suspension violates the Fifth Amendment's double jeopardy clause.
  • Finally, how is Kirk Cameron going to win the war on Christmas when his film will only be in theaters for two weeks?

Glenn Beck's Gut Tells Him The Vote For Scottish Independence Will Lead To 'Global Destabilization'

Most of Glenn Beck's crazy theories seem to originate somewhere in his gut, beginning with little more than a "feeling" that something is wrong and then migrating to his brain where he attempts to shape it into some quasi-coherent theory with varying degrees of success before eventually expelling it out his mouth.

Watching the process take place is truly something to behold and it happened not once, but twice, during yesterday's morning staff meeting as Beck first sought to explain why President Obama is using the term "ISIL" instead of "ISIS," though he struggled mightly to do so because the theory that he came up with did not fit with his worldview or even make any sense.

Later in the meeting, Beck went through the process again when he issued a dire warning about the upcoming vote on Scottish independence, saying that it would lead to widespread civil war and "global destabilization."

After admitting that something about this independence vote bothers him but he doesn't really know what it is or why, Beck concluded that world leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin are "licking their chops over this" because it can be used to justify splitting apart Ukraine while setting a precedent for "civil war all over the world," as Beck spun out some convoluted theory about how this vote for independence is "going the opposite direction of where the power is going," whatever that means.

"This is what my gut's been telling me," Beck said. "There's something wrong here. There's something really big ... there's a really huge consequence to this. That's what it is. This leads to global destabilization":

'Call Me Crazy': Glenn Beck Links Fears Of Airborne Ebola To Nigerian Prison Guards

Glenn Beck spent his entire opening monologue on his television program last night essentially scaring the living daylights out of his audience by warning that a global Ebola pandemic may be just around the corner and will be brought into the United States by Nigerian prison guards.

Citing fears that the Ebola virus could mutate into an airborne respiratory virus that could be passed by a cough or a sneeze, Beck then connected that to a "tip" he received from one of his The Blaze readers, who informed him that Texas is facing a shortage of prison guards and is therefore bringing in workers from Nigeria to fill those positions, which has reportedly been going on for years.

"There is this weird twist that nobody seems to be talking [about]," Beck said. "The only thing we know about Nigeria is that ... Ebola is breaking out! So we're hiring people from Nigeria who are going back and forth to their country. Does that really seem like a good policy, for a number of reasons? And again, what pops out is Ebola!"

"Call me crazy," he concluded, "but letting Nigerians roam freely in and out of our country as they work as correctional officers in prisons, also in transportation and food service, might seem like something we should look into":

'Why Won't They Use The Oval Office?' Glenn Beck Creates A New Conspiracy Theory

Glenn Beck is upset that when President Obama delivered his remarks laying out his plans for confronting ISIS last night, he did not do so from the Oval Office, suggesting that this is all part of Obama's effort to fundamentally transform the nation by erasing America's image of what the presidency represents.

"There's a problem with the Oval Office and this president," Beck said. "There's something wrong there."

Beck is mystified as to why Obama refused to deliver his remarks while seated behind the Resolute Desk and concluded that the only logical explanation is that it is all part of an intentional effort to carry out "a reset of the president of the United States."

"It is part of the fundamental transformation," he said. "This guy's in for eight years, not speaking [from the Oval Office]. He has erased eight years of what that office means. You know, you build up a relationship with the image and he's changing that image. He's changing the image of the United States, he's changing the image of the president of the United States, he's changing the image of what a president looks like - I'm not talking about color, I'm talking about what he looks like, what the optics are. They're so fascinated with optics. Why won't they use the Oval Office? Something's not right":

President Glenn Beck Fixes The V.A. In An Hour

There is something genuinely fascinating about watching Glenn Beck play make-believe as he explains the simple ways in which he would solve the world's problems were he the President of the United States.

He did it again on his television program last night where he began by claiming that President Obama does not respect or love the military or veterans and then ended up acting out just how President Beck would have solved the problems with the Veteran's Administration in an hour by simply firing a bunch of people.

Beck literally stood in the middle of his staff and acted out a scenario in which he called his subordinates to the carpet in the Oval Office, demanding accountability for failings at the V.A. and then summarily fired them.

"I want your ass in my office Thursday at noon," make-believe President Beck told pretend Secretary of the V.A. Stu Burguiere. "I want answers. This stops now!"

Fake President Beck then demanded to know the names of any veterans who may have died while awaiting treatment - and while the Inspector General's report could find no conclusive evidence that that actually happened, Fake President Beck lowered the hammer nonetheless.

"You get your ass out!" Fake President Beck heroically declared. "You're fired. You're done."

"You do that one day for an hour," Beck said, "you fix the V.A.":

'Suck The Air Out Of Their Lungs And Push Them Back Into The Darkness': President Beck Lays Out His Plan To Destroy ISIS

Glenn Beck today unveiled his ingenious strategy to defeat ISIS which apparently no one, including President Obama, has thought of yet: "kill them."

Spending a good portion of his radio show today anticipating President Obama's scheduled address tonight laying out his plan for confronting ISIS, Beck speculated that the address was hastily scheduled because the administration has intelligence suggesting that terrorist attacks are going to be carried out on the anniversary of 9/11 and Obama wants to look like he was prepared.

After declaring that he has no faith that Obama actually has a plan or even understands the threat posed by ISIS, Beck actually delivered his own remarks laying out just what the president should say tonight and explaining that if he was president, every weapon short of nuclear bombs would be fair game.

Saying that, short of nuclear weapons, the fuel-air bomb is "the most horrific weapon that we have" because it ignites the oxygen in the air, suffocating those below the detonation before raining fire down upon them, Beck said that, nonetheless, it should be used against ISIS.

"It's a horrific, horrific bomb," he said, before stating that, were he president, he would "take nukes off the table" but tell his generals that everything else was allowed.

"Forget 'shock and awe,'" Beck declared, "you show the world what America does when we unleash the might and full power of the United States of America. Suck the air out of their lungs and push them back into the darkness so maybe we can have thirty more years before we have to do it again. Scare the hell out of them. That's the only thing you can do with these guys. Kill them. Kill them rapidly and go home. No nation building":

Glenn Beck Endorses The 'Appeal To Heaven' To End Abortion In Ohio

A few weeks ago, we noted that Janet Porter was organizing "An Appeal To Heaven" rally to take place outside the Ohio Statehouse this month at which she and various anti-choice and Religious Right activists will ask God to help pass Porter's "Heartbeat Bill."

For four years, Porter has been working, unsuccessfully, to pass this legislation in Ohio which, if enacted, would prevent a woman from having an abortion from the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be "as early as 18 to 24 days after conception."

The rally is scheduled for next Wednesday and somehow Porter has managed to get Glenn Beck to film a video encouraging people to attend and participate.

"I hope, by now, your aware the elected officials in Columbus haven't done the things that you've hired them to do," Beck says in the video. "They say they're pro-life, but they have held a pro-life Heartbeat Bill hostage for four years."

"You've called, you've rallied, but it's time to go over their heads," he said, "and I mean way over their heads and make an appeal, not to the courts - your're invited to join pastors and leaders from all around the state for an appeal to Heaven":

Glenn Beck Sheds Fake Tears Over The Idea That Anyone Could Be Offended By The Term 'Redskins'

During yesterday's morning meeting, Glenn Beck and his staff were discussing reports that the owner of the Atlanta Hawks was going to sell the basketball team after an internal investigation discovered that he had sent a racially charged email.

Beck, of course, thinks the entire story is so ridiculous that, for some reason, he brought out an old Redskin Brand Chewing Tobacco spittoon and pretended to sob over the idea that anyone could be offended by the imagery.

"You should have seen the children crying around it, the Native American children," he said, mockingly. "They were all standing around it going 'boo hoo hoo, I can't go on with my life because of the football team and this old spittoon, boo hoo hoo."

Claiming that Native Americans don't actually have a problem with this sort of imagery, Beck said it was actually "white liberal children that were crying about it" as he proceeded to fake cry once again: "Somebody else can't go on with their life because I did something but I didn't have anything to do with it because I'm only four, but boo hoo hoo":

Beck: Everything I Have Warned About For The Last Ten Years Is Now Coming True

For the last several days, Glenn Beck has been hyping the fear that terrorists may have captured nearly a dozen commercial airplanes in Libya, which they intend to crash into oil fields in Saudi Arabia in order to take down America.

On his radio show yesterday, he raised the threat once again, warning that if this happens "it is lights out for the Western way of life." Beck went on to caution that while he is not predicting that this is going to happen, he does have a track record of having been right about everything he's warned about for the last decade (or so he likes to pretend).

"I'm just telling you," he said, "that all of the things that we have spoken about on this program for the last ten years ... everything we've spoken about, they're all now poised to happen."

Beck then went on to toss out a variety of other dire scenarios about economic and social collapse and global war in order to warn that a wholesale meltdown is all but inevitable because nobody would listen to him.

"I can just tell you that all of the things that I told America: you should prepare, we should act now, we should pay attention, we have to stop this, we have to change the course, we have to do it right now, there will come a time when all options in front of us are bad options," Beck said. "We're here. We're here right now"

Right Wing Round-Up - 9/4/14

Michele Bachmann's Simple Solution To ISIS: 'Defeat Them And Be Done With It'

Glenn Beck invited Rep. Michele Bachmann on to his television program last night to discuss the threat that ISIS poses to the Middle East and the rest of the world, during which she laid out her simple solution to solving the crisis: Kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, defeat his army of radical Islamic fighters, and "be done with it."

When Beck wondered why the U.S. hasn't just sent an elite sniper team in to kill al-Baghdadi, Bachmann said that is exactly what needs to happen, declaring that ISIS only has 12,000 fighters, which will be no match for the U.S. military.

"This is something we can accomplish," she said, to which Beck replied that he, like most Americans, is "tired of war."

"Well, who isn't?" Bachmann responded. "So defeat them, defeat them right away, get serious about it, defeat them and be done with it instead of dragging this out."

When Beck wondered if it was actually possible to defeat Islamic militants like ISIS, Bachmann assured him that it was, saying that such groups have been defeated several times throughout history.

But despite those repeated defeats, Bachmann said, "they have an ideology that tells them to reconstitute" ... which seems to undermine her claim that defeating these sorts of groups is an easy thing to accomplish, does it not?

  • Have you heard of Kendra Turner? If not, you will soon as she has now become the latest victim of supposed Christian "persecution" and new darling of the Religious Right.
  • Bryan Fischer thinks that Twitter is censoring images of an American journalist being beheaded in an effort to protect Islam.
  • Speaking of Fischer, journalist Michael Tracey gamely tried to engage him in a legitimate conversation today about the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri but only managed to demonstrate how pointless such efforts are since Fischer refuses to debate in good faith and repeatedly treats right-wing spin as established fact.
