Beck: 'Hillary Clinton Will Be Having Sex With A Woman On The White House Desk If It Becomes Popular'

On the radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck and his co-hosts spent a segment attacking politicians who are now announcing their support for gay marriage after having publicly opposed it just a few years ago. Saying that if the issue really is "the civil rights issue of our day," politicians should have been willing to stand on principle for it when the issue was unpopular instead of opposing it then only to endorse it now that polls show growing public support.

Among the targets of Beck's ire is Hillary Clinton, whom he declared would soon announce that she is a lesbian if it will help her get elected in 2016.

"I'm telling you," Beck said, "Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular":

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/28/14

  • Sarah Palin is an American treasure.
  • The only thing worse than gays is Christians who defend gays.
  • The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund is raking in millions of dollars and spending almost none of it on candidates.
  • Glenn Beck has some "pretty big plans" for his movie studio and promises that people will be "absolutely shocked" by what he has in store.
  • Finally, on a semi-related note, Alex Jones is attacking Beck because "he actually works for Obama," which is just about the most deliciously ironic thing we have ever seen.

The Prophet Glenn Beck Has A Message From God: 'I Am Coming And I Will Settle Scores'

On Friday, Glenn Beck spoke at Liberty University's convocation where, in between crying jags, he announced that his charity, Mercury One, would be donating $50,000 to the school because its students give Beck hope for the future.

For most of his speech, Beck, a Mormon, lectured the large audience on what it means to be a Christian, beseeching them live their lives in such a way that they can "demand miracles, expect miracles, call down miracles" in the name of "the awesome power of Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."

Later, Beck recounted the "Restoring Courage" event he put together in Jerusalem back in 2011, saying that he had no idea why he held it other than that God told him to.

Saying that he was overwhelmed by the fact that he was to be among "the first Christians to ever speak at the Temple Mount," Beck had no idea what he was even supposed to say ... until God finally told him that the message that he was supposed to deliver was that "I am coming and I will settle scores":

In 2012, Liberty's decision to invite Mitt Romney to speak at its graduation ceremony sparked protests from students and alumni, so it was genuinely amazing to watch the audience at Liberty now shower Beck with applause as he preached Mormon theology from the stage during convocation, at one point declaring that "nobody in the Grand Council" chose to come to earth from Heaven in order to be an accountant or make t-shirts for a living, which is a distinctly Mormon theology.

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/25/14

  • Glenn Beck spoke at Liberty University today. There was some crying involved.
  • A poll commissioned by Citizens for Community Values Action shows, shockingly, "a decline in support for same-sex marriage in Ohio."
  • Robert Oscar Lopez warns S.E. Cupp not to support gay adoption because, in doing so, "we are encouraging a whole new generation of homewreckers – gays who want to be parents and figure out that the cheapest way to do it is to seduce someone of the same sex who is currently in a rocky marriage with children."
  • Right-wing activists have released a Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi report. We are sure it is very informative.
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer proudly declares that "I am the only conservative in America" that is willing to come to Cliven Bundy's defense.

The Prophet Glenn Beck Warns That Society Is 'Too Far Gone' And Only The Bible Can Save Us

With every passing day, Glenn Beck's transformation into the self-appointed prophetic leader of a doomsday cult grows more pronounced as he uses his network to issue increasingly dire warnings about the impending and inevitable destruction of America while literally thumping his Bible.

Just take a look at yesterday's morning meeting where Beck harangued his staff that "the system" is in a full-fledged nosedive.

"It's in a straight pitch down," Beck proclaimed. "That's what our society is doing right now. Straight pitch down!"

The only solution, of course, is the Bible.

"This has all the answers," Beck said while smacking his hand upon his Bible. "This is the only answer. Period. We are too far gone. Any other fix won't do it ... This is the only parachute. Jump out of the plane!"

Beck Goes Full Barton, Claims One-Third Of The Constitution And Declaration Came Straight From Deuteronomy

On today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck went full David Barton, claiming that one-third of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence came straight out of the Bible; more specifically, right out of the Book of Deuteronomy.

Continuing his argument from last night that the Bible is the "cookbook" of America's system of government, Beck echoed David Barton's claim that the Founding Fathers were so well-versed in the Bible that they quoted it continually in their correspondence.

When Barton made this very claim on Beck's show a few years ago, we pointed out that it was total nonsense, but Beck cited it as true nonetheless this morning before adding his own bizarre assertion that "thirty-three percent of every federal line in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence ... comes from the Book of Deuteronomy":

Not surprisingly, this claim is also pure Barton bunk, as Chris Rodda explained back when Barton made this claim on Beck's program in 2010.

But even worse, Beck somehow managed to utterly misrepresent things even further by claiming not that one-third of the quotes from the Founders came from the Bible, which is what Barton misrepresents the original study to claim, but that one-third of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence came straight out of Deuteronomy.

Glenn Beck Wants The Bible Taught In Public Schools Because It Has Been 'The Only Textbook We Needed'

Glenn Beck has been on a kick recently hailing the Bible as the solution to every single one of our nation's problems, so it comes as no surprise to see him now throwing his support behind an effort led by Hobby Lobby president Steve Green to get the Bible taught in public schools all over the nation.

Hailing the Green family as "true Americans" during his morning meeting, Beck turned directly to the camera and urged viewers to shop at Hobby Lobby in order to support them because "these people are the best."

On last night's television program, Beck then interviewed Jerry Pattengale, who is overseeing the development of this Bible curriculum program, declaring that trying to build a Western democracy without studying the Bible is like trying to become a chef without ever reading a cookbook.

"This is our cookbook," Beck said of the Bible. "If you don't understand this, you ain't gonna be able to make anything that looks like a Western government and a free society."

Later in the discussion, Beck said that the more he reads the Scriptures, the more convinced he becomes that the Bible is "the only textbook we needed" because every piece of human wisdom comes directly out of that book.

"I really, truly believe," Beck proclaimed, "you could use that book and that book alone and teach a man to be a great man with no other book than that":

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/23/14

  • Jerry Newcombe defends Jim DeMint's absurd claim that the federal government played no role in ending slavery, which makes sense given that DeMint made the claim while appearing on Newcombe's radio show.
  • Beware! "Torquemada Invades America."
  • "Can You Be Gay and Christian?" FRC and Michael Brown will let you know.
  • ADF calls on pastors to "rise up," just like the Founding Fathers who "believed so strongly in the involvement of pastors and Bible teachers in political matters that they risked their lives signing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."
  • Finally, Glenn Beck does not believe that the nation’s immigration court system just happened to suffer a massive technical meltdown because he, of course, suspects that someone is deliberately sabotaging it as retribution for the failure to pass immigration reform.

Glenn Beck Says David Barton's 'Founder's Bible' Is 'The Only Answer' To Saving America

Last week, Glenn Beck had David Barton on his television program where he heaped praise upon Barton's last book, "The Founder's Bible." Now Beck has begun personally promoting Barton's book during advertising breaks on his show, as he did last night when he beseeched his audience to buy the book because is represents "the only answer" to our problems.

"This is, honest to God, we are out of all other options," Beck said, holding up Barton's book. "This is the only answer and he have to know it inside and out ... We have to start reading this with our kids that the table at dinner every night."

"I can't urge you enough to get involved and get this," he concluded before, later, interviewing Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center, who declared that America is God's "chosen nation" because the Holy Spirit inspired the Founding Fathers to create this country and our Constitution.

That prompted Beck to proclaim that "it wasn't a coincidence that the Democratic Party denied God three times," referring to the vote that took place during the 2012 convention.

"Three times they called that and all the biblical meaning behind that," Beck marveled. "God's just going to say, he's begging us, please don't do this":

Glenn Beck Is Not One To Doubt The Miracle Of The Jesus Pancake

Last week, the owners of a cafe in California cooked up a pancake that, they believed, looked a lot like Jesus and Glenn Beck spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast today defending the possibility that said pancake really could be a message from God.

Saying that while doesn't really believe in these sorts of messages, he is also "not willing to reject things that people interpret as a good sign of hope" because people often receive "divinely inspired" signs from God that other people mock as ridiculous.

"I don't want to question God," Beck said, because "I really believe we are entering a season of miracles and I'm not going to guess on somebody else's miracle that is giving them peace."

Eventually, Beck had a photo of the Shroud of Turin put up on the screen alongside a picture of the Jesus pancake to make the case that the two images looked similar, based mainly on "the shape of the nose" in each image.

Sadly for Beck, his co-hosts were not buying it.

"What are you talking about?" asked an incredulous Stu Burguiere. "It's not similar at all. You're looking for things you want to find":

Glenn Beck Says That America Is Just As Anti-Semitic As Ukraine

The most fascinating aspect of Glenn Beck's nightly television program is the "behind the scenes" look that it has begun to air in the form of excerpts from the morning meetings that Beck holds with his senior staff.  The practice of filming and airing these clips began a few months ago and the segments have gotten progressively longer, so much so that they have begun to take up large chunks of the program that used to be filled by Beck's opening monologue. 

What is most remarkable about these clips is that they show a room full of intelligent, independent adults who gather day and day to be lectured by Beck, who is part doomsday prophet and part self-help guru, on every issue imaginable as if he alone possess some amazing insights into the true nature of the universe when, in reality, it is usually little more than Beck spewing nonsense.

Take yesterday's meeting, for example, where they were discussing the situation in Eastern Ukraine where Jews were reportedly being told to register with the government or have their possessions confiscated and be deported. The flyers were widely regarded as being a hoax, but Beck echoed a warning issued by a Holocaust survivor that Jews should leave Ukraine anyway ... but then added that there was really no place for them to go because antisemitism was just as bad in America as it is in Ukraine.

"The question is where do you run?," Beck asked his staff rhetorically. "Think the United States is any less anti-Semitic?  I mean, yes it is less anti-Semitic but we're doing it in our universities. We're growing it here":

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/21/14

  • Glenn Beck regrets giving Mitt Romney his first edition copy of George Washington's farewell address, especially since he never even received a thank-you note.
  • Michael Brown has "some honest questions for professing 'gay Christians.'"
  • The Family Foundation of Virginia "is asking that you join us for 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance for Marriage from August 27 until October 5, 2014."
  • Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them.
  • Finally, Jim Garrow boldly tells Glenn Beck and Oprah Winfrey that he will not appear on their programs, even though they are both practically begging him to do so!

Paranoia-Rama: Bundy Ranch Showdown, 'Gay Jihadists' & Fox News's Fear Of Muslim Voters

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

On top of all the dizzying anti-government rhetoric emanating from the Bundy Ranch fiasco, the right-wing still had time this week for extremist and bizarre claims about gays, Muslim-Americans and Hillary Clinton.

5. Bundy Ranch Rallying Cry

Fox News, Tea Party groups and the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity have become major cheerleaders for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his allied militias in their lawless stance against Bureau of Land Management, consistently citing debunked claims that the BLM is working on behalf of a solar energy project led by Harry Reid and a Chinese firm.

Fox News host Sean Hannity hinted that the government was trying to murder Bundy, and his network colleague Todd Starnes suggested that violence would have been an appropriate response to the authorities who confronted Bundy after his defiance of several court rulings.

Conservative activists and commentators have compared Bundy to Rosa Parks and Mahatma Gandhi and likened the militia members to the colonists who fought the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Astoundingly, the violent rhetoric of Bundy and his supporters was even too much for Glenn Beck.

4. The ‘Gay Jihad’

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, whose over-the-top columns are so unbelievable that he may in fact be deliberately trying to embarrass the conservative movement and undermine it from within, this week warns that “‘gay’ jihadists,” along with the “power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists,” are pushing an “anti-Christian, sexually anarchist sociopolitical agenda.”

“Most people are naturally repulsed by the mechanics of homosexual conduct,” Barber writes, warning that their “filthy practice” is “the squalid, unnatural and feculent abuse of both the reproductive and digestive systems. Yuck.”

Therefore, he warns that gays need to take over public schools and the media in order to “indoctrinate” the public against their better instincts to oppose gay rights.

But Barber goes on to lament that most people aren’t as smart or brave as he is, leaving them easy prey of the gay “jihad.”

3. America’s Star Of David Badge?

Eagle Forum’s national political chairwoman Sandy McDade says that while she wants the governor to require people show a photo ID in order to vote, she opposes the REAL ID Act because it will turn America into Nazi Germany.

McDade, who also heads Eagle Forum’s Louisiana chapter, testified at a Louisiana legislative hearing on Tuesday against a REAL ID compliant driver’s license bill, warning that a gold star on the license is reminiscent of the Star of David badge that the Nazis forced Jewish people to wear.

2. Birth of the Shoe Truthers

It was only a matter of time before conservative activists conjured up a conspiracy theory about the incident in which a woman threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton while she was delivering a speech in Las Vegas. Writing for Fox News commentator Bernard Goldberg’s blog, Arthur Louis speculated that “Hillary arranged to have the shoe thrown at her” in order to “make her seem presidential.”

Herman Cain, who at one point was the frontrunner for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, suggested that Clinton engaged in “fakery,” and tweeted an article from his website’s editor-in-chief, Dan Calabrese, about how “only a completely naive fool” would believe that Clinton didn’t stage the incident.

In the article, Calabrese carefully analyzed Clinton’s movements when the shoe was thrown in her direction, concluding that she had a “snarky grin on her face” and did not have “a natural reflex action.” “Listen carefully to the inflection,” he wrote. “I'm just asking: Did that sound sincere?”

Rush Limbaugh also weighed in, saying that he wouldn’t reject the “shoe truther” conspiracy theory because it all could have been a ploy to discredit conservatives who criticize the former secretary of state’s handling of the Benghazi attack.

So, it should come as no surprise that less than 24 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced that she is pregnant with her first child, we already have Clinton baby truthers.

1. Muslims Can Vote? What A Scandal!

Of course, Fox News hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Steve Doocy believe that a new group working to increase the civic involvement of the Muslim-American community is a dangerous threat to the US, so they invited former congressman Allen West to spread insane fears about the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the country.

Because only to Fox News is an effort to increase voting and participation in public life an attempt “to wage jihad from within.”

Irony Alert: Beck Tells Candidates They Had 'Better Learn About Who The People Are You're Standing Next To'

On yesterday's radio program, Glenn Beck interviewed Shane Osborn and Ben Sasse, both of whom are running for the Senate in Nebraska.  The interview with Osborn was rather awkward from the get-go as Freedomworks, which has deep ties to Beck and his network, had initially endorsed him only to rescind its endorsement and support Sasse instead after Beck heaped praise upon him.

Near the end of the conversation, Osborn mentioned that he would be holding a town hall later that night with Grover Norquist, apparently unaware that Beck absolutely loathes Norquist.  The revelation did not go unnoticed by Beck, who returned from a commercial break following the interview to question Osborn's judgment for associating with someone like Norquist.

"Grover Norquist is truly one of the most dangerous men supposedly on our side," Beck said. "He, I believe, is the George Soros shadowy figure who is not who you think he is."

When co-host Pat Gray tried to play devil's advocate and defend Osborn by saying maybe he only knew about Norquist's anti-tax efforts and not all of the other "dangerous" stuff Norquist is supposedly doing, Beck wasn't swayed.

"You're a senator," Beck said of Osborn. "It's your job to learn about these things, if that's your job. If you're going to be a senator, you had better learn about who the people are you're standing next to! It's your responsibility:"

We would like to point out that Glenn Beck regularly welcomes various congressional candidates onto his radio program, as well as several sitting members of Congress, including Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

So allow us to, for once, agree with Beck and say to all of those candidates who are eagerly lining up to stand next to him: "You had better learn about who the people are you're standing next to! It's your responsibility."

Beck: Matt Bevin Is A 'Founder Quality' Candidate Who Has 'Been Called By God'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck warned that if Sen. Mitch McConnell is re-elected, organizations such as his The Blaze or Breitbart.com will not be allowed to operate as independent media outlets and Tea Party groups will find themselves being targeted by the IRS in retribution.

Beck asserted that Comcast is refusing to carry his The Blaze network because of political pressure from people like McConnell before warning that if he gets re-elected, he will use to IRS to decimate all those Tea Party groups and media outlets who supported his opponent Matt Bevin, whom Beck declared to be a "Founder quality" man who has "been called by God."

Bevin, Beck said, is "a guy I really, truly believe has been called by God. I really do. I met that guy and I was talking to him and I was like 'oh my gosh.' I mean, the Spirit jumps off of that guy. He's Founder quality and I'm talking to him and he left the room and I looked at Pat and I said 'do you feel that?' and he said 'oh yeah.' I said 'that guy's called from God.' This is a guy we prayed for":

Beck: The Bible Tells Us 'Everything We're Supposed To Know' About Politics

All week, Glenn Beck has been very torn over the showdown between the federal government and supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy because his anti-government views make him inclined to side with Bundy and his supporters, but he cannot bring himself to do so because some of Bundy's supporters seem very intent on fomenting a violent conflict with the government.

On last night's television broadcast, Beck brought David Barton onto the program to discuss the situation and dispute the anti-government activists who are justifying their calls to take on the federal government by likening the Nevada standoff to the beginning of the American Revolution in 1776.

"It's not even close to that," Beck said. Barton readily agreed, absurdly declaring that "when people say that, that proves to me they've been through a government education system that taught them lousy history":

The discussion of the ranch standoff was rather perfunctory as Beck changed topics and began heaping praise upon Barton's "The Founders' Bible" as an extremely important resource for addressing all of our contemporary political problems.

After Barton ran though his standard litany of lies about how various components of our society and government all came directly out of the Bible, Beck said that in reading the Bible cover-to-cover over and over again, he has become "amazed at how much a book of revolution that [it] really is."

"We disconnect this from politics," Beck said of the Bible, but "this gives us everything that we're supposed to know":

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/16/14

  • Rep. Michele Bachmann will be the commencement speaker at her alma mater, Oral Roberts University, next month.
  • Rick Santorum's Christian film company will now begin distributing its movies directly through churches.
  • Great headline, Christian Post: "Sebelius May Be Obama's Late Term Abortion."
  • Bryan Fischer and Robert Oscar Lopez commiserate over the fact that they are both considered too radical to be accepted by the "mainstream" pro-family movement.
  • Finally, Glenn Beck is getting into the movie-making business because "I hate politics. I hate politicians and I feel like I'm wasting my life." Which explains why he spends hours on radio and television every single day talking about politics and politicians.

The Prophet Glenn Beck Says Everything God Warned Him About Is Now Happening

Glenn Beck's transformation from a one-time "rodeo clown" into a quasi-prophetic religious leader of a doomsday cult continues to pick up steam, with Beck informing his staff during yesterday's morning meeting that his "longest running, unspoken prophecy" is now beginning to be fulfilled in the world.

Echoing the remarks he made on his radio show yesterday, Beck told his staff that he has been arguing with God for months over this frightening vision of the future that God has been showing him but he has finally accepted the fact that everything that God warned him about is now happening "and I know it."

"It's going to get ugly," Beck warned, "but now is the time. The Malcolm X/Martin Luther King time is here. It's here. It's happening":

All Of Glenn Beck's Dark Prophetic Visions Are Now Beginning To Come True

As we have noted several times in the past, Glenn Beck has a tendency to wildly vacillate between proclamations of impending doom that are followed, a short time later, by triumphant declarations that everything is going to turn out just fine.

Back and forth he constantly sways, one week warnings that utter destruction is inevitable and then, a few weeks later, joyously promising that huge miracles are in the works.

Lately, Beck has been on an upswing, predicting that success beyond his imagination was just over the horizon because all of his prayers were starting to be answered. But now it seems that the showdown between the federal government and anti-government activists over the last week in Nevada has soured Beck once again and so he has now returned to warning that dark, dark days are ahead for this nation.

Referencing the standoff in Nevada, Beck reiterated his position on his radio show today that anyone who is advocating the use of violence cannot and must not consider themselves to be a fan of his whatsoever, repeatedly asserting that God does not support threats or calls to violence.  As such, Beck beseeched his audience to humble themselves and turn to God as the solution to all of our problems; but even then, he warned, something has already been set in motion that is going to tear this nation apart.

Revealing that he has been experiencing deeply disturbing "personal promptings" for several years that have been so frightening that he has been reluctant to even discuss them, Beck said that, on Saturday, he realized that they were finally beginning to occur.

"I do believe we are entering dangerous times," he warned. "They are the times that have been foretold, they are the times that I have, on a different scale, seen coming as well. I believe what has been set in motion now is new and different and will tear us apart":

'I Want Nothing To Do With You,' Beck Tells Those Threatening Violence In Anti-Government Standoff

While just about the entire right-wing movement has rallied behind Cliven Bundy, the Nevada cattle rancher locked in a battle with the federal government over his refusal to recognize the government's control over public grazing lands, Glenn Beck, of all people, is refusing to do so.

This showdown ought to be the sort of thing that Beck eagerly embraces and you can tell that it is causing his extreme consternation not to be able to do so, but he is very concerned about the fact that the anti-government forces that have lined up behind Bundy are issuing threats of violence, which is why he penned an open letter over the weekend saying that he cannot side with them and, instead, calling for people to turn to God:

I do not mean to lecture you or anyone else. I am so far away from a perfect man. In fact I am very much the “dispensable man”, the opposite of the man I am striving to be, but I am working on it. I pour over my scriptures like never before. I rarely am with out them. I read them day and night, in bed, in the car, on the set, and at the dinner table and yet I am a million miles from where The Lord needs his people. For this too, I repent. ”I am sorry Lord for not being ready for your call.” I am one that is finding there is no oil in my lamp.

Never try to create your own miracles. Every time you will fail and make it worse. Moses thought he would make it better when he killed the Egyptian but it only delayed freedom.

I worry about the rancher and his family. The ranchers around him and all around the country. I was blowing the warning trumpets on this kind of usurpation long ago. But any fan of mine knows that I have also said that I will never call for arms with the state of our faith.

I, too, am a rancher but the ultimate rancher is God and we are His flock. I will follow His voice for it is the only one I recognize.

I am sorry, but as all MY real fans know, I believe Ghandi, MLK, Bonhoeffer and Jesus were right. I will follow their example. I know what that means or meant for them.

But I will stand with The Lord.

That message was not well-received on Beck's Facebook page, which prompted him to declare that "those of you calling for violence over this Nevada standoff are not supporters or any kind of long-term fan of mine":

Beck discussed the situation again on his radio program today, saying that he would be speaking with Bundy later in the broadcast and reiterating that he was very disturbed by the violent threats being issued by those who had rallied around Bundy, asserting that God does not support what they are doing and therefore "I will have nothing to do with you":
