On his show today, televangelist Jim Bakker claimed that most Black Lives Matter protestors are “little kids” who should not be listened to, blaming President Obama for “allowing these riots to get out of hand.”
“Did you ever look at the people marching?” Bakker asked. “Most of them are kids. And you want some kid, 10-, 11-, 12-year old running your country? You know, I mean, it’s beyond comprehension and I say again, I blame our leadership for allowing these riots to get out of hand. It’s no sense in it.”
Bakker continued, “If you’ve got a big convention of thousands of people coming to have a Republican or Democratic convention, we have no obligation to let them take over and riot in the streets. We need a president that will say, ‘No more, we’re not gonna do it.’ Why let these little kids – they don’t even know, we used to say they’re not even dry behind the ears, you understand what that means? And yet we let it go on.”
James Dobson dedicated his radio program today to railing against the guidelines released by the Obama administration advising public schools on the rights of transgender students, asserting that it was part of an effort by President Obama to sow chaos so that he can impose tyranny upon the country.
"It seems like everything he's tried to do has been to move us toward chaos," Dobson said. "Chaos in the military. Chaos in medicine, certainly. Chaos in the family, in marriage. Chaos in the judiciary and in the courts. Chaos in the economy. Chaos in every branch of government. Chaos in education, from kindergarten through the largest and most influential of the universities. It's been chaos and now he's trying to tell parents how to raise their children and that will be the most chaotic of all because that leads towards the next generation. He gets control of the next generation, then his predecessors will have an easier time of controlling us and that is what it comes down to. It comes down to tyranny."
"If the people have to take a choice between chaos and tyranny, they will always choose tyranny because chaos is unpredictable and tyranny is generally not, even when you're under an oppressive regime," Dobson continued. "I think control is what it comes down to."
"The history of America has been a people who had a passion for freedom," he concluded. "They were not willing to be tyrannized, they fought a revolutionary war because they were being oppressed and tyrannized and we're moving in that direction. I'm not calling for a revolution, but I am saying we better stand up and fight because we're losing something precious to us; it's called liberty."
On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that "we are right now living the Milgrim Experiment" and, of course, it is all President Obama's fault.
Beck was referencing the famous series of social psychology experiments done at Yale University back in the 1960s, which found that many people were willing to inflict increasingly painful punishments upon a subject simply because they were ordered to do so by someone in authority.
Today, the comments being left on Facebook show that this mentality has overtaken our entire society, Beck said, and it can all be traced directly back to Obama.
"Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, they're all, in their own ways, hammering people who disagree with them," Beck stated. "So they are setting for an example for both the left and the right, it's okay to be vile, it's okay to be uncivil. How are we living the experiment? Have you read Facebook lately? Have you read the comments section lately?"
"I contend, if you read Facebook, if you read anything, you read any comments right now, we are living the Milgrim Experiment," he continued. "We are living in a time where people will say, 'It's okay you do that.' And people in authority — Barack Obama is the first one, he's the first president; if you remember, even George Bush treated Cindy Sheehan with respect, she didn't treat him with respect but he treated her with respect. Surrogates might have said things, but the president did not, the president did not. Barack Obama was the first to say, 'You're walking around with your little tea bags.' That was the beginning of the Milgrim Experiment. Somebody in authority was saying it's okay to bash them."
Last week, TheDove TV's Perry Atkinson interviewed right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein on his "Focus Today" program to discuss the Obama administration's appointment of a transgender woman, who was an official with the United Church of Christ, to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
During the conversation, Atkinson fumed about the guidelines released by the Obama administration for public schools on how to protect the rights of transgender students, declaring that while President Obama claims to be a Christian, "he himself has been the most offensive attack against Christianity in the history of the United States."
Bernstein responded that Obama is a self-proclaimed Muslim and that anyone who believes that he is a Christian is a conspiracy theorist.
"I'm not a birther," Bernstein said, "I am a truther and I believe the president when he repeatedly tells me over and over and over again that he is a practitioner of the Islamic faith. He is not a Christian and for anyone who thinks that he is, they, in fact, are the conspiracy theorists."
On his "Pray In Jesus Name" show recently, Gordon Klingenschmitt interviewed right-wing radio host and political commentator Josh Bernstein about the current state of the election. Bernstein, who also serves as the spokesman for the Association of Mature American Citizens, a Tea Party version of the AARP, is someone whom wehavementioned a few times, but never really paid much attention to ... at least until he called us "pinheads" on Klingenschmitt's show.
That prompted us to take a look at Bernstein's "TV show," which consists of little more than a YouTube channel, where we found insightful clips like this one where he explains that Hillary Clinton could become the first lesbian president, which is fitting since President Obama is the first gay president.
"The best unkept secret in Washington, D.C., is that Hillary Clinton is a lesbian," Bernstein said, as he declared that the investigation into her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state will finally prove that she has had multiple same-sex relationships, most notably with key aide Huma Abedin.
Clinton has had affairs with the likes of Yoko Ono and actress Markie Post, as well as with Webb Hubbel, who is Chelsea Clinton's real father, Bernstein asserted. He added that Bill and Hillary decided to raise Chelsea as their own purely for political gain because they are "the most corrupt family in American history."
Clinton "would be the first lesbian president," he said, which "is probably fitting because we already have the first gay president in Barack Obama."
Multiple members of Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church that Obama attended knew that he was gay and then "ended up dead because they were probably going to tell their stories," Bernstein said. "There is definitely some mystery surrounding Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton."
On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer asserted that "President Obama is a guy that envies dictators" and wishes that he could be one.
Fischer was discussing Obama's recent trip to Cuba, which he said left the president wishing that he could wield total control over this nation in the way that foreign communist and socialist dictators control their countries.
"I've always thought that President Obama envies dictators," Fischer stated, "wishes he could be one, envies their power; they don't have to answer to anybody, they can do whatever they want, they can impose their will as policy over an entire nation. And Obama loves that, he envies that, he looks up to them, he admires them because of the kind of power that they have, he wishes he could be one of them, he wants to belong to their club. That is why he is so fawning, he admires them, he respects them, he wants to be them. That is what he always has such a fawning presence when he is with them."
On his radio programyesterday, Bryan Fischer predictably criticized President Obama for attending a baseball game in Cuba following the terrorist attacks in Brussels because ... well, who knows? Fischer didn't explain what he thought that Obama should have done and, frankly, he would have criticized the president regardless of how he responded because it would have inevitably been, in Fischer's view, the wrong response.
Laughably, Fischer actually compared Obama's response to a terrorist attack that took place nearly 4,000 miles away to President George W. Bush's response on 9/11, saying that Bush was lambasted for simply spending "15 or 20 seconds" reading a book to schoolchildren before he "politely excused himself" after he was informed of the terrorist attacks that were under way:
We have no idea what Fischer is talking about since Bush, of course, infamously spent several minutes sitting idly in a Florida classroom after being informed that the nation was under attack:
Alan Keyes was unimpressed by President Obama's remarks condemning the terrorist attacks in Brussels, telling Steve Malzberg on Newsmax yesterday that Obama has actually been facilitating terrorism against America by bringing in refugees "so that they'll be poised" to carry out terrorist attacks in this country.
"The war he's been concentrating on, sadly, I think is the war against the Constitution and the people of the United States, against our sovereignty," Keyes said. "A war that actually has him facilitating the business of terror, both in his foreign policy and in the policy of importing illegal immigrants into this country as part of his sort of refugee program to help terrorists come to the United States and establish themselves so that they'll be poised to do us the kind of harm they are already doing as refugees in Europe."
Yesterday, Fox News pundit Todd Starnes posted a video version of his most recent column, in which he blamed President Obama for the violence and protests that have been breaking out at Donald Trump rallies.
"The person responsible for fomenting political unrest is not Donald Trump," Starnes said, "It's President Obama. For the past seven and a half years, this man has been stoking division and discord. You want to talk about creating controversy? Fine. Let's talk about Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, and Trayvon Martin. President Obama is the one who told his followers if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. That's what he said."
After dismissing the concerns that the "establishment overlords like Mitt Romney and the uppity-ups at the National Review" have about Trump, Starnes declared that "the folks who pay the bills in this country are fed up. We're tired of being called racists and homophobic and xenophobic. The Silent Majority is mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore."
On his program yesterday, Walsh had something of a meltdown over it, calling Obama a "disrespectful, arrogant, immature, anti-American ass!"
"Why aren't you going to go?" Walsh demanded to know. "Are you golfing? The entire country wants to know and your White House won't say why ... Why would you not go to this funeral? Is it because Scalia was white? Is it because Scalia was Italian-American? It is because Antonin Scalia so adored, so loved that Constitution that you abhor? You know, it makes me sick, it makes me sick every day to wake up in a country with a president who so dislikes America. You're not my president and you proved that once again."
Alan Keyes was the guest on several episodes of Gordon Klingenschmitt's "Pray In Jesus Name" program this week, where he asserted that it was "insane" for America to ever have elected President Obama.
On Tuesday's program, Klingenschmitt and Keyes, who was Obama's Republican opponent in the 2004 U.S. Senate race in Illinois, discussed the incident earlier this month in which Iran briefly detained and quickly released several U.S. Navy sailors who had inadvertently crossed into Iranian waters due to mechanical problems, with Keyes blasting Obama for supposedly deliberately weakening America and its military because he hates this nation.
"Obama has essentially turned us into a kind of footstool for these people," he stated. "They despise us and no longer believe that we have the will to use such power as we have. And the second thing, sadly, is I think Obama has actually let our power deteriorate to a point where, in terms of the actual wherewithal to deal with some of these situations, he's let it slide. And he's also been a person who, in his rules of engagement and other activities, has done what seems prone to do; he's attacked the people who are supposed to defend us, he's demoralized the soldiers who are responsible for defending us."
"He has actually behaved as what I called him years ago," Keyes concluded. "He's the first anti-American ever to occupy the White House and it was insane to put him there!"
On his television program last night, Glenn Beck interviewed a clinical psychologist who diagnosed Donald Trump as either suffering from "narcissistic personality disorder" or being "on the psychotic spectrum," not unlike Adolf Hitler.
Beck returned to the topic on his radio program today during a discussion of Sarah Palin's endorsement of Trump yesterday, declaring that Trump is psychopath who is truly "dangerous" ... just like Barack Obama.
"This is not the first time I've heard" people warn that Trump is a psychopath, Beck declared. "This guy, I believe, is dangerous. I believe he is dangerous."
"And I said this about Barack Obama and so far I have been wrong," he added, sarcastically.
Beck did so again today, concluding that Obama is nothing more than "a scared little boy whose daddy left him and his mom abandoned him" ... based entirely upon the choice of artwork that Obama placed in the Oval Office.
Beck reached this obviously scientific conclusion by noting that Obama was free to decorate the Oval Office with any works of art that he wanted, but instead chose to retain many of the same pieces of art that hung in the office under President Bush, which means that "the guy doesn't even know what his own art is" and that Obama is therefore totally lacking in substance or identity.
"I think it's because he doesn't know who he is," Beck reasoned "and that's what makes him 'me, me, me, I, me, look at me!' because he's hiding. There is nothing there. There's nothing there. I think he's a scared little boy whose daddy left him and his mom abandoned him."
Glenn Beck typically does notreact well to President Obama's State of the Union addresses, so naturally he was a little bent out of shape this morning after having watched Obama's final address last night. But amid his outrage and disgust, Beck did discover one little piece of good news: World War III is coming.
Beck, of course, has been warning that WWIII is just around the corner since 2013 and while the supposed tipping point isconstantlychanging, Beck is now more convinced than ever that it is going to happen soon, precisely because Obama mocked the idea last night.
Beck, who has an amazing track record of being wrong about pretty much everything, declared on his radio program today that if Obama mocks something, then "you can take it to the bank that that is going to happen."
"What did he mock last night, for the first time?" Beck asked. "Stunning, stunning that he mocked it ... He mocked you if you believed that we were at the beginning of World War III. Mocked you. That's crazy. Take it to the bank we are at the beginning of World War III. The president says it's definitely not going to happen; I think that is all the evidence that you need that it is definitely going to happen."
"I've never seen a man more wrong when it comes to what the world is going to do and what our enemies are going to do," Beck continued, without a hint of irony or self-awareness. "I've never seen anybody more wrong."
Yesterday, Glenn Beck absurdly warned that President Obama's executive action on background checks for gun buyers would prohibit anyone who seeks mental health treatment from owning a gun. Today, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer took this nonsense a step further on his radio program when he declared that Obama's action will prohibit anyone who doesn't believe in climate change from owning a gun.
As Fischer explained it, those who represent a danger to themselves or others due to mental illness are not allowed to possess a gun and since Obama thinks that climate change poses a serious threat, it only stands to reason that Obama believes that anyone who doesn't share his view about climate change is mentally ill and represents a threat to everyone else and therefore cannot be allowed to own a gun.
"If you are a danger to yourself or to others because of a mental health issue, then you can be denied the right to own a gun," Fischer said. "If you and I deny that man-caused global warming is anything to worry about, then that's going to make us a danger to others and unfit to own a gun."
Glenn Beck kicked off his radio broadcast this morning by voicing his deep suspicions about President Obama growing emotional while discussing victims of gun violence yesterday, raising the possibility that Obama wiped Vicks under his eye in order to make himself cry.
As a professional crier, Beck knows a thing or two about weeping on air and spent the opening segment of his show questioning Obama's apparent emotion during yesterday's press conference precisely because, unlike Beck himself, Obama does not regularly cry on camera. As someone who cries regularly, Beck explained that his tears are obviously genuine whereas the tears of someone like Obama, who does not cry at the drop of a hat, are highly suspect ... especially since they seemed to perfectly timed.
"I’m not saying that it’s manufactured, but I’m not not saying that either," Beck said. "He's never welled up before. But suddenly, at this crucial moment, where this moment can actually change the course, he cries ... I don’t know if anybody else saw this, I was fascinated by the the fact that he reached up to touch his eye before there was any tears. Did anybody notice that? ... All you have to do is just have a little bit of Vicks or a little bit of onion or anything on your finger, and then you reach up and you touch your eye. That then is underneath your eyelid and the vapor goes up and you can't stop crying."
Beck disingenuously claimed that he was willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt, which is more than liberals are ever willing to give him, saying that if he were to react to Obama's tears as liberals react to his, he'd be calling Obama "a lying sack of crap" who has no heart and who is "manufacturing this only to make money and to get his way."
Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid is calling upon Congress to impeach President Obama and remove him from office on the grounds that he is currently mentally incompetent due to excessive use of marijuana when he was younger.
In a piece logically titled "Is Our Stoner President Mentally Impaired?," Kincaid asserts that Congress must begin the process of "removing Obama from office because of cognitive impairment" as "he is so affected by previous drug use that he is just not capable of comprehending reality":
Obama is, presumably, not smoking marijuana in the White House. But he talks and acts as if he is still under the influence. Indeed, the long-term impact of the weed on his intellectual processes is a subject of concern. David Maraniss, author of a book on Obama, notes that the word “choom,” taken from “Choom Gang,” means to smoke marijuana. He said Obama “started a few pot-smoking trends,” suggesting the future president understood ways to make the “high” from the drug even more powerful and lasting. One method they used was to smoke dope in a car and then inhale or suck in what was left of the smoke in the ceiling of the car.
What Maraniss leaves out of his book on Obama is the role played by Obama’s mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis, another dope smoker who probably gave the young Barry some tips on inhaling the drug for full effect. Davis, a pedophile, probably also taught young Barry about experimenting with sex.
It is worth recalling that when he ran for office, Obama refused to release his complete medical records. Instead, a sympathetic doctor merely released a 276-word “summary,” claiming he was in excellent health.
If Congress doesn’t want to find Obama guilty of having an ideology that explains his sympathy for radical Islam and disqualifies his continued service as President, the only alternative is to diagnose his medical condition with public hearings and conclude that he has lost touch with reality and is mentally ill. A Congressional Research Service study cites evidence that section four of the 25th amendment is designed for “a sick president who refuses or is unable to confront his disability,” or “a president who is disabled but unwilling to step aside.”
This section is complicated, but it explicitly allows for Congress to establish a committee or another body to review the president’s disability and recommend his removal from office. It refers to several ways the president can be removed, including through a body “as Congress may by law provide.” This would begin the process of congressional action.
The main objection will be that using Obama’s dope-smoking days against him is going back too far in his life to justify his removal from office. But many observers see that something is seriously wrong with this President’s approach to his job. Blaming his performance on the lingering effects of the heavy use of illegal drugs makes as much sense as any other explanation at this point.
Indeed, with impeachment on ideological grounds off the table, it is within the jurisdiction of Congress to decide that Obama has done enough damage to the nation and the world and that he must go. Since Obama seems to be AWOL in the War on Terror, dereliction of duty by Congress in this case would only increase the danger and risk to the nation.
Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today by reading a long rant that he posted on his Facebook page last night voicing his disgust at the "PC coverup" of the fact that yesterday's mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, was an obvious act of Islamic terrorism.
Naturally, Beck eventually focused his rant on President Obama, calling him either delusional or "the dumbest son-of-a-bitch on the planet."
"Mr. President, I say this with as much respect as you deserve," Beck declared. "Screw global warming! What the hell is wrong with you? If you actually believe that global warming is the biggest problem we face with terror all around the world, an $18 trillion dollar debt — nine of which is yours — no real allies left that trust us, riots in the streets, riots in our university campuses, race relations worse than I've seen since the 1960s and a distrust of our fellow Americans unlike anything I have ever seen, you, sir, are either delusional or you're the dumbest son-of-a-bitch on the planet. Which is it?"
"It is about Islam," Beck fumed. "So was Boston. So was Benghazi. So was Fort Hood. So was half a dozen others that you failed to address, and quite frankly, sir, so was 'Ahmed the Clock Kid.' It was a timer and not a clock."
On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver declared that President Obama is bringing in Syrian refugees because he "has no love for this country" and wants to undermine and destroy America.
Staver and cohost Matt Barber were ostensibly discussing last month's terrorist attacks in Paris, though most of the discussion was aimed at attacking Obama for bringing Syrian refugees into America, which Staver insisted is going to lead to a Paris-like tragedy here as well.
Barber was at a loss to understand Obama's desire to "bring in potential ISIS terrorists by the thousands," wondering if it is sheer incompetence or something he is doing intentionally.
"It's not incompetence," responded Staver. "It's intentional. This person that occupies the White House has no love for this country and, in fact, does so many things to undermine the moral, the unity and the security of this country. It's absolutely unbelievable. If he were someone else, the media would be all over him, but he gets away with all this because they don't hold him accountable. Frankly, this particular president, his legacy will be that he has weakened America and that he is making us vulnerable to some serious attacks."
Barber agreed, declaring that if any sort of terrorist attack occurs in America on Obama's watch, "he will have blood on his hands and there's a word for that and that word is 'treason.'"
Glenn Beck dedicated a good part of his radio program this morning to laying out his case that the Obama administration is directly responsible for the rise of ISIS, the establishment of the self-proclaimed caliphate and, by extension, the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Relying entirely upon one heavily redacted Defense Intelligence assessment from 2012 that was released back in May, Beck entirely misrepresented its findings to declare that the Obama administration sought to use Al Qaeda in Iraq, the precursor to ISIS, to foment a proxy war in Syria in order to topple the Assad regime and allow the creation of a "Salafist Principality" in Eastern Syria.
"Now, I want to make this very clear," Beck said. "I'm charging that this president was the architect behind much of what was going on. I am charging that the president was not surprised by this at all. I'm charging that the president knew clearly these things would happen."
"ISIS is the fruit of Obama," he declared. "No good fruit can grow from a bad tree ... In reality, they saw ISIS coming, they wanted ISIS to come. Would Paris have happened if we would have destroyed ISIS in the first place rather than contain them, rather than arm them, rather than coddle them? This president sowed these seeds. We are now reaping what has been sown by our own president. Do not allow him to plant any more seeds!"
Beck's entire argument relies upon his false claim that these were "key goals" of the Obama administration when, in reality, the intelligence assessment asserted that these were merely "future assumptions about the crisis." The assessment simply noted that the on-going Syrian civil war could evolve into a proxy war, with the Syrian regime getting support from Russia, Iran, and China; not that this was in any way the goal of the Obama administration, as Beck asserted.
In addition, the assessment noted that Syrian "opposition forces will try to use Iraqi territory as a safe haven for its forces" and that "if the situation unravels, there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria." Such an outcome was not, as Beck claimed, the administration's goal. In fact, the assessment notes in the very next bullet point that such developments would carry the threat of "dire consequences" for the region by providing Al Qaeda in Iraq an "ideal atmosphere" to thrive and by giving it "renewed momentum," which would represent a "grave danger" to efforts to unify and stabilize Iraq.
