Beck: 'I'm a Chess Player'

Every day on his radio and television program, Glenn Beck makes various vague prophecies about how something is going to happen at some point in the future and even though he doesn't know what it will look like or when it will happen or how it will come about, you can rest assured that it will happen because he has a unique gift for being able to see how everything that is happening in the world is all connected and fits together into an overarching narrative that only Beck can understand or explain.

And then months or years down the road, when something inevitably happens, Beck seizes on it and declares that this is exactly what he was talking about when he first made his vague predictions! 

On last night's program, Beck was at it again, declaring that we are on the verge of World War III ... and though Beck hopes that he is wrong, he knows that he isn't because he understands world history and history always repeats itself, so he is challenging anyone to prove him wrong.

"I'm a chess player," he stated, "that warns you, don't move there; three moves down, they got you.":

Pratt: Reform Will Grant Citizenship to a 'Gazillion' Immigrants Who'll Be 'Sitting Around Drawing Welfare and Voting Democrat'

Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America once again touted his group’s staunch opposition to immigration reform yesterday, telling conservative talk show host Steve Deace that if a reform bill passes then “you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.”

Pratt claimed the Senate’s “scamnesty plan” would “bring in a gazillion Democrat voters” who will be mostly illiterate and “dependents.”

“They’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat,” Pratt said.

Pratt: The scamnesty plan is a plan to bring in a gazillion Democrat voters. The people who have not been given immigration status because they are a doctor or an engineer or some other skill that would be beneficial in the United States economy, but instead the people that would be given amnesty ultimately by this procedure that Rubio and company have been unleashing are those that don’t have even high school educations, are barely literate in their own Spanish language. I’m fluent in Spanish and I’ve spoken with some of these people and it’s amazing that they can’t even spell in Spanish when you have almost a completely phonetic language. I’ve taught people to read in Spanish if they could competently speak the language, I’ve taught them to read it’s that phonetic. Yet the people that would be coming in illiterate in Spanish, they’re going to be Democrats, they’re going to be dependents, they’re not going to be working at a nuclear reactor or a car factory, they’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat.

Deace: But don’t we have to pass this or we can’t win any more national elections? That’s what I keep being told.

Pratt: If we pass it we probably will guarantee not winning any more national elections.

Deace: There’s really only two conclusions to the Republicans peddling this: mass stupidity is one, the other is that they are just so tired of arguing with people like you and I about big government that they’ve just decided to go ahead and help the Democrats win. Pratt: And those are probably not mutually exclusive. What they’re doing then by bringing in this many Democrats, if they were to do that, means that by the time you get all of those folks into their citizenship status, our guess was about 2035, you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.

ALIPAC: Immigration Reform Will Abolish 'Civilian Control' of Government and Put an End to 'Peaceful' Opposition

Fox News can’t seem to decide whether to embrace immigration reform or continue its longtime anti-immigrant advocacy, often with amusing results.

This schizophrenic approach has not gone unnoticed by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) head William Gheen, who has sent a letter to Fox News executives is warning the network that they are committing the “greatest betrayal” against their fans by “literally working to displace and replace your most loyal viewers at the ballot box.”

He argues that “the current censorship and bias emanating from Fox News” in favor of immigration reform “is in effect leading your viewers to their own political, and possibly eventual physical, destruction.”

Gheen says that Fox News is creating a “Brave New 1984 Totalitarian World,” adding that the network realizes that “only through amnesty for illegals and further illegal immigration and non-assimilation will your investment in Fox News Latino pay off!”

“The new voting bloc of tens of millions of illegal aliens will render American conservatives and the Tea Party members permanently ineffectual in American elections,” Gheen writes. “Any hopes of reestablishing civilian control over Washington, DC, through peaceful and political means will vanish if legislation rubber stamping Obama's dictatorial decrees granting amnesty to illegals leads to eventual voting rights for illegal immigrants.”

Mr. Rupert Murdoch, Mr. Roger Ailes, and Fox News Show Hosts:

Over the last 8 years, I have been a guest on your network many times. But it appears that I, and most other opponents of illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants, are no longer welcome on Fox News now that your corporation is lobbying to pass immigration reform amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.



The greatest betrayal of Fox News and all producers and show hosts participating in these illegal alien amnesty support efforts is that you are literally working to displace and replace your most loyal viewers at the ballot box.

The new voting bloc of tens of millions of illegal aliens will render American conservatives and the Tea Party members permanently ineffectual in American elections if the amnesty bill supported by Fox News passes.

Americans who overwhelmingly support border security, debt reduction, restrained taxation, and responsible government spending clearly do not have control of our own government at this time.

Any hopes of reestablishing civilian control over Washington, DC, through peaceful and political means will vanish if legislation rubber stamping Obama's dictatorial decrees granting amnesty to illegals leads to eventual voting rights for illegal immigrants.

So the current censorship and bias emanating from Fox News is in effect leading your viewers to their own political, and possibly eventual physical, destruction.

Your corporation has now created Fox News Latino which consistently produces terribly biased propaganda pieces that promote amnesty and illegal immigration while attacking any leaders or groups that oppose the invasion, which shows that you are now heavily financially invested in continuing illegal immigration into America and amnesty for illegal immigrants! If illegal immigration were to stop or reverse, we would not need Spanish language news in America in a decade. Only through amnesty for illegals and further illegal immigration and non-assimilation will your investment in Fox News Latino pay off!

With Fox News jumping on board with MSNBC, CNN, CBS, the Associated Press, George Soros, the Saudis, the Mexicans, the Chinese, and Barack Obama, and now with Google and Facebook, you all have this Brave New 1984 Totalitarian World wrapped up for us all, don't you?

What recourse will American citizens or any groups and leaders who should oppose this nation burying Globalist agenda have to reach out and communicate with others when almost all major communications points are now part of the same cabal?

'Coach' Dave Daubenmire: President Obama Is a Sociopath

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire is out with his latest "News With Views" commentary in which he warns that this nation is being governed by sociopaths.

Declaring that while pretty much every politician is, by definition, a sociopath, Daubenmire is particularly concerned about President Obama, who he compared to cult leader Jim Jones.  Saying that unlike himself, who has a functioning conscience and obligation to speak the truth, Obama does not believe that he is not bound by such obligations because "he is a sick man":

Perkins: 30 Percent of Characters on TV are Gay; Used to Shield 'Dangerous Lifestyle'

Tony Perkins must be watching a lot of LOGO, as the Family Research Council president appears to be under the impression that gays and lesbians represent close to one out of three characters on TV. “Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines,” Perkins maintained on his daily radio commentary today, even though according to GLAAD, “LGBT characters account for 4.4% of scripted series regulars in the 2012-2013 broadcast television schedule.”

The FRC based the commentary on an article in the conservative National Catholic Register criticizing “Hollywood’s powerful homosexual culture.” The 30% figure Perkins cited does not refer to gay characters on TV but to one Catholic screenwriter’s claim that “based on her own experience, [homosexuals] make up 30% of Hollywood’s entertainment industry.”

Not only did Perkins manufacture the “30%” figure, he also alleged that “lovable gay characters” on TV are “make-believe people” whose “dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote.” He warned that these gay characters are being used “to desensitize America.”

Perkins asserted that in reality, gays are typically “dying of AIDS” and “bullying kids.”

“Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses,” Perkins said. “They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum.”

Is marriage headed for a Hollywood ending? Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The debate over same-sex marriage has been perfectly scripted by Hollywood. Television shows are full of lovable gay characters, whose dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote. Unfortunately for America, those make-believe people are having a real-life impact. In a new survey, almost 20% of Americans credit television with changing their minds on same-sex marriage. And that’s no accident. Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines. Liberals are using this barrage to desensitize America and viewers are buying it. Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses. They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum. Like most everything else on TV, it’s fiction. And the only way to fight it is knowing your role in speaking truth!

Lively: Following Boy Scout Victory, Gay Activists Will Launch a 'Blitzkrieg Against the Church'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer brought on Scott Lively to bolster his assertions that scouting has always been used as a "major homosexual recruiting effort" going all the way back to Nazi Germany.

After ten minutes of pseudo-historical nonsense about how the German Wandervogel was designed to "revive the Greek ideal of pedagogic pederasty" and now the Boy Scouts had fallen to the same agenda, Lively declared that the Scouts had represented "the last secular resistance to homosexuality in our culture," which means that, within the next year, there is going to be "a blitzkrieg against the Church like we've never seen before" which will seek to wipe out the last remaining opposition to the gay agenda:

Religious Right Therapist Claims Crayon Drawings Prove Ex-Gay Therapy Works

During a program on the conservative Christian television network Daystar on homosexuality, ex-gay therapist Jerry Mungadze insisted that he can prove his sexual orientation conversion efforts work because he has observed in his patients that after therapy the “areas of the brain that were showing the homosexuality show heterosexuality…the brain is able to go back and fire the way it is supposed to be.”

But Mungadze – who only has degrees in Biblical Studies and counselor education — wasn’t talking about actual brain scans. In fact, Mungadze’s “evidence” of brain transformation relies on crayon drawings.

Warren Throckmorton reports:

Note that patients color in a map of the brain and Mungadze reads the map like a projective test. Apparently, pink relates to femininity, red to anger/aggression, and so on. He says he can tell gay people apart from straights; and when they revert to heterosexuality, he can tell by how they color between the lines.

Who needs brain scans when you have crayons?

                                 



As for the theory of the brain revealing itself via colors chosen by patients, I know of nothing to support it. Projective tests in general are not reliable and this one in particular looks like a method invented by Mungadze without reference to research or validation.

Jacobs: Those With Native American/Indigenous Heritage Must Renounce and Repent for Their Ancestor's Sins

Cindy Jacobs has posted the most recent episode from her on-going series of "Ten Minute Prayer Schools," with the current episode focused on defeating "the Leviathan spirit."

Jacobs explained that this spirit is among the most dangerous and damaging ones at work today, being responsible for divorce, family feuds, sibling rivalries, church splits, and even tribal wars.

And this spirit cannot be defeated until it has been properly dealt with, Jacobs said, which means that people with Native American or any sort of indigenous heritage need to renounce it and repent for their ancestor's animism and worship of pagan spirits because otherwise this Leviathan spirit "will be very active in your bloodline":

Rios Warns LGBT Rights Movement Is Transforming America into Soviet Russia

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association hosted Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes today where they discussed a brochure [PDF] from the group DOJPride, a group representing LGBT employees at the Department of Justice, which they said was a sign that the U.S. is turning into the Soviet Union.

The brochure was simply a list of tips on creating an LGBT-inclusive work environment and has no enforcement provisions, but those plain facts didn’t stop Starns from arguing that the DOJ now “require[s] managers to post a symbol, an emblem, showing that they are pro-gay in their office.”

“This makes it clear that it’s not enough to give so-called equality, any objections must be eradicated and this is our future if we allow this to continue,” Rios warned, while Starnes called the brochure “un-American.”

Rios even claimed the LGBT rights movement is transforming America into the USSR: “When I was a girl the Soviet Union was such a great threat to the world, the spread of Communism, and those of us that remember that era we have not forgotten, we just never thought it would happen in our country. I’ve had callers to the radio show who grew up in the Soviet Bloc countries, I’ve had them call weeping to see what’s happening to our loss of freedoms.”

Perkins: 'Investors Flock' to ExxonMobil Because They Aren't 'Fueling the Homosexual Agenda'

Last year, Tony Perkins made the unintentionally hilarious argument that Starbucks’ support for Washington state’s marriage equality bill cost the company $10.2 billion in lost market capitalization. Now, the Family Research Council president is arguing that the reason ExxonMobil’s “shares rose 2% last year” is because “more investors flock to an organization unafraid to take a stand” against gay rights.

Perkins was referring to an ExxonMobil shareholder vote last week that rejected a resolution protecting LGBT employees from job discrimination. By not “fueling the homosexual agenda,” Perkins said, ExxonMobil was able to have “its second-biggest profit year ever.”

Yep, we can’t think of any other reasons why ExxonMobil’s earnings are rising.

At ExxonMobil, shareholders put their stock in something other than political correctness. Hello, I’m Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. It won’t change the price of gas, but it may comfort you to know that at ExxonMobil, your business isn’t fueling the homosexual agenda. For the 14th straight year, ExxonMobil refused to add special protections for sexual orientation in its employment policy. And while the outcome wasn’t a surprise, the margin of victory certainly was. By a four-to-one ratio, shareholders said “no,” shocking liberals and bolstering other companies under pressure from corporate bullies. Liberals say these kinds of views can affect your bottom line — and they’d be right! ExxonMobil is coming off its second-biggest profit year ever. The company’s shares rose 2% last year, as more investors flock to an organization unafraid to take a stand. Maybe Exxon’s courage will help other companies drill down on their priorities. Until then, at least this gas company is keeping our values in the pipeline.

Gaffney: Immigration Reform May Give Citizenship to Terrorists

Frank Gaffney took to the Washington Times today to warn Sen. Marco Rubio that if he continues to support the Senate immigration reform bill, then he will be effectively helping terrorists gain citizenship.

While Gaffney alleged that “illegal immigration is up as untold numbers of aliens seek to take advantage of our still-too-porous border to get themselves placed on the ‘path to citizenship,’” in reality, the flow of unauthorized immigrants is at historic lows.

He writes that Rubio is pushing the “undoing” of laws which “thwart terrorists and dangerous criminals seeking to exploit our immigration system.”

“As Mr. Rubio surely knows,” Gaffney continues, immigrants crossing the border include people “associated with terrorist groups such as al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah.” “Does Mr. Rubio want to be responsible for helping their ilk not only continue to come here, but to obtain legal status to stay?”

Like Mr. Obama’s earlier amnesty initiative — the Dream Act — the Gang of Eight bill is already having the predictable effect: Illegal immigration is up as untold numbers of aliens seek to take advantage of our still-too-porous border to get themselves placed on the “path to citizenship.” As Mr. Rubio surely knows, a non-trivial percentage of those are dubbed OTMs — “other than Mexicans.” These include persons from what are euphemistically called “special-interest countries,” notably, Iran and other Islamist-ruled nations. Some are even associated with terrorist groups such as al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah — notwithstanding the Obama State Department’s preposterous announcement last week that there are “no known operational cells” of such groups in the Western Hemisphere.

Does Mr. Rubio want to be responsible for helping their ilk not only continue to come here, but to obtain legal status to stay? Is he OK with the extensive hamstringing of law enforcement this bill entails, which can only make it more difficult to protect us against such unwanted aliens?

Then there’s the screening process mandated by the gang’s legislation for the more than 11 million illegal immigrants already here. It seems designed to delude the innocent, not detect the dangerous. Its superficial, hands-off review bears no resemblance to the 14-hour interview the FBI conducted of Tamerlan Tsarnaev before the Boston Marathon bombings— and even that proved inadequate to the task of identifying and excluding a threat.

Mr. Rubio cannot finesse the hard choice before him. An amendment here or there will not fix the systemic problems with a bill that, at its core, ignores and subverts national security by undoing much of the law put in place after Sept. 11 to thwart terrorists and dangerous criminals seeking to exploit our immigration system. Will he enable it to become the devastating new law of the land?

Glenn Beck Talks To Himself

Every once in a while, Glenn Beck goes so far off the deep end that any attempt to coherently explain what he is talking about is rendered futile, so all we can do is post a clip and let it speak for itself.

It happened again last night, as Beck's current theory is all about how the plan to have the IRS target Tea Party groups emanated directly from the White House and was entirely rooted in the work of Cass Sunstein, of course.

This culminated in this segment from last night's program during which Beck imagined just what the conversation laying out this plan must have looked like ... by talking to himself while wearing a wig and a mustache and sounding eerily like Tim the Bear:

Admittedly, this excerpt doesn't really make a lot of sense, but neither did the segment, which you can watch in its entirety if you just can't get enough of Glenn Beck talking with a funny accent:

Bryan Fischer, Boy Scouts on Parade, and Nazi Germany

Over the weekend, several Boy Scouts and leaders in Utah defied orders and marched in a pride parade wearing their scouting uniforms.  Bryan Fischer and his AFA colleague Randy Sharp discussed the story on Fischer's radio program yesterday and during the segment, Sharp said that one of the adult leaders was "barking military orders" at the Scouts during the parade.

Later in the program, Fischer returned to the topic and claimed that the entire thing reminds him of Nazi Germany, where the German version of the Boy Scouts was started as a "major homosexual recruiting effort":

College Republicans Tell GOP to Play Down Anti-Gay Views, Sponsor Anti-Gay Conference

A new report released by the College Republican National Committee has been making waves this week for its stern warning that the GOP’s appeal is foundering among young voters. Chris Moody notes that the group explicitly mentioned the party’s opposition to gay rights as a reason why young voters are repelled by the party:

"[T]he conventional wisdom is right," the study's authors write in a section on how Republicans should approach marriage policy for gay and lesbian couples. "Young people are unlikely to view homosexuality as morally wrong, and they lean toward legal recognition of same-sex relationships."



With the culture shifting away from the party's policies, here's what they recommend:

The best course of action for the party may be to promote the diversity of opinion on the issue within its ranks. (After all, for quite some time, former vice president Dick Cheney was to the left of President Obama on same-sex marriage) and to focus on acceptance and support for gay people as separate from the definition of marriage. Where the Republican Party will run into the most trouble over this issue is when it is not winning on any of the more prominent issues, either – the economy and spending. If a candidate is compelling enough on economic opportunity and spending, they may well be able to overcome a difference of opinion with young voters on same-sex marriage.

The authors conclude: "On the 'open-minded' issue, yes, we will face serious difficulty so long as the issue of gay marriage remains on the table. In the short term, the party ought to promote the diversity of thought within its ranks and make clear that we welcome healthy debate on the policy topic at hand. We should also strongly oppose the use of anti-gay rhetoric."

But it turns out the College Republican National Committee is sponsoring the “Road to the Majority Conference,” hosted by Ralph Reed’s far-right Faith & Freedom Coalition, along with other anti-gay groups like Concerned Women for America, the Manhattan Declaration, the American Civil Rights Union and televangelist Pat Robertson’s Regent University.

In fact, some of the GOP’s most stringently anti-gay leaders like Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum are scheduled to address the conference, and Robertson will receive Lifetime Achievement Award.

World Congress of Families Praises Russian Laws 'Preventing' Gays from 'Corrupting Children'

Last week, End Times radio host Rick Wiles spoke to Larry Jacobs of the World Congress of Families on TruNews about his organization’s summit in Moscow next year. The World Congress of Families is a US-based organization with an international focus, especially on stopping laws decriminalizing homosexuality, and so it was no surprise to learn that Jacobs cheered on Russian laws banning gay pride demonstrations and supposed “homosexual propaganda.” He called the ban a “great idea” and hailed officials for “preventing [gays] from corrupting children.” He even called the Russians the “Christian saviors to the world.”

Jacobs: The Russians might be the Christian saviors to the world; at the UN they really are the ones standing up for these traditional values of family and faith.

Wiles: Well look the city government of Moscow passed a 100 year ban on gay parades.

Jacobs: And the homosexual propaganda—the law in the Russian Duma it passed on first reading, it would ban propaganda to minors, preventing them from corrupting children. What a great idea and the rest of Europe is going the other way, legalizing LGBT propaganda.

Gay people regularly face violence and police harassment in Russia. In fact, even evangelicals in Russia increasingly encounter persecution and discrimination as the Russian Orthodox Church gains clout.

Jacobs also detailed how gay rights advocates, feminists and environmentalists are working together “to break the family apart” and introduce “totalitarianism.”

Wiles: We could do a 24 hour talkathon on the attack on families around the world; do you believe that there is a coordinated plan, attack, war on the basic concept of families?

Jacobs: Absolutely. Obviously there are some at high levels that are quite aware of the strategy, but even those that aren’t are implicitly participating in this strategy because everything that the far-left promotes from homosexual marriage to radical environmentalism to a socialist/communist approach to big government, all of these things require the breakdown of the family. The family, I think it was Chesterton that said that the family is the only natural unit that reproduces itself and therefore it is always a threat to the state, it is always a threat to freedom, to totalitarianism; it promotes freedom and liberty. Wherever you see radical leftists, radical environmentalists, radical feminists and radical LGBT groups all together it’s because they have an active agenda to break the family apart. Rabbi Daniel Lapin said this, it’s not just a Christian concept but it’s Judeo-Christian and it goes across various cultures. Rabbi Lapin said it’s not that they’re stupid and don’t understand what the family stands for, that’s the very reason that they’re against the family because it radically opposes their leftist agenda.

Boykin: 'Sexualization of our Military with Social Engineering' Responsible for Assaults

Mike Huckabee hosted Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin today to discuss a report on the rise of sexual assault cases in the military between 2010 and 2012, which Boykin linked to the “sexualization of our military with social engineering” policies like the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell 

While Boykin correctly stated that “there are actually more men that have been sexually assaulted than women,” as we have noted, women represent a higher percentage of assault cases since there are only 200,000 women in the active-duty military.

He repeated the false claim that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is linked to the number of assaults on men. However, CNN reports the 2012 rate “remained unchanged for active duty men” from 2010, the year before the law was repealed.

The two also tied the rise in assaults to the end on the ban on women in combat, a decision that was made in 2013 — before the study’s release — and hasn’t even been fully implemented.

Huckabee: General, there has been such a rash of sexual assault in the military and it’s become virtually epidemic. I wanted your assessment, do you think this has anything to do with the fact that we’ve so liberalized the policies of everything from women in combat, the whole conception of the separation of the gender, as well as saying we’re not going to have any restrictions on homosexuals in the military? Does that have anything at all to do with this?

Boykin: Well I think it has everything to do with it, Governor. We have seen, if I may use this term, a sexualization of our military with social engineering. One of the things that most of the people don’t realize is in a recent survey there are actually more men that have been sexually assaulted than women. We are trying to violate the laws of nature, failing to recognize that these young men and women are at the peak of their sex drive when we try to mix the genders for reasons that to me are illogical and in doing so what we are doing is we are inviting this kind of behavior, it’s not acceptable and it has to be punished and dealt with. But I think that this social engineering has manifested in a number of ways and this is certainly one of the clearest.

Beck: 'It Will Be This Audience That Saves the Nation'

At the end of today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck had some words of encouragement for his listening audience.

After warning them to be prepared because "things are going to get tougher," Beck also assured them that every day he becomes more confident that "it will be this audience that saves the nation." 

And while the nation may ultimately only be saved in remnants and pieces, Beck knows that "real civil rights leaders will rise" and they will be long-time listeners of his program: 

Bill Federer: Clinton Used 'Alinsky Tactics' To Realize 'Global Goal of Establishing Sharia Law'

Religious Right historian Bill Federer stopped by the 700 Club today to discuss his column arguing that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “using [Saul] Alinsky tactics” in her response to the attack on the US compound in Benghazi and hoped to engender a “hurried rush for Americans to give up their free speech rights.”

During the interview with Pat Robertson, Federer said “Hillary [was] pulling back defense troops” and suggested that a “stand down” order given to a four-person support team came from Obama administration officials in either the White House or State Department.

However, the order actually came from the military, specifically Special Operations Command Africa, and it was given because the team would not have been able to reach the compound in time and were needed to secure the airport for evacuation. Even a top Republican aide in the House confirmed that there was no way the special operations team could have changed the outcome.

But Federer won’t let these facts get in the way of his argument that Clinton deliberately allowed the Benghazi attack to occur (or botched the response) as part of an Alinsky-inspired plot to impose Sharia law around the world.

“So the question is was Benghazi just inept actions by our government, was it something to put down negative speech that could affect the President’s reelection campaign or was it an Alinsky tactic to push an agenda to forbid free speech insulting Islam,” Federer asked, “We’re talking about a global goal of establishing Sharia law and we came very, very close to it happening right after the Benghazi attempt with this effort to forbid free speech insulting Islam.”

Of course, weeks after the attack Obama used his address at the UN General Assembly to defend the freedom of speech and speak out against blasphemy laws…which must have been another Alinksy tactic!

Larry Pratt Presents 'Nullifier of the Year' Award to Sheriff Who Warned of Gun Control 'Bloodbath'

Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt is a big fan of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, a group of Tenther county sheriffs who have declared that they answer directly to the Constitution (or their interpretation of it), rather than to the federal government. Unsurprisingly, the organization and the movement it represents have grown substantially during the presidency of Barack Obama.

Pratt often praises the Constitutional Sheriffs in his speeches, and was a guest of honor at their annual convention last week, where he presented the “High Noon Award” to the Milwaukee County Sheriff who took out an ad urging people to arm themselves rather than calling 911. Pratt also presented the “Nullifier of the Year” award to Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County, Kentucky, who has announced that he will not enforce federal gun laws in his county, warning that there would be a “bloodbath in our community when they come in to take guns.”

Pratt himself summed up the gist of the Constitutional Sheriffs movement when he told WND:

There is a misconception in our time that the court somehow is the arbiter of what is constitutional; that’s not true! Every official that raises their right hand and says they’re going to adhere to the constitution, seek to protect it to the best of their ability, ‘so help me God’ – that’s something that they’re all obligated to do.

The nullification movement is growing in popularity in conservative state legislatures – for instance, Kansas has passed a law declaring that "Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution of the United States is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas."

The nullification concept dates back to South Carolina Sen. John C. Calhoun, who argued that if the federal government did not allow a southern states to “nullify” an 1828 tariff act, they would be within their rights to secede from the Union. Historian Cody Carlson explains, “The unspoken fear, of course, was that if the federal government could levy a tariff to profoundly alter the economy of the South, was the institution of slavery safe from federal interference? Could not the North, in the guise of instituting new economic policies, virtually prohibit slavery?”

David Gans of the Constitutional Accountability Center, via Steve Benen, explains why nullification has long been discredited:

Nullification was a 19th century theory, identified most closely with South Carolina Senator John C. Calhoun, based on the notion that the states created the Constitution and retained the power to determine whether the federal government complied with limitations on its power. This theory has been universally rejected throughout the course of American history by the courts as inconsistent with the Constitution. As the Constitution's preamble makes clear, 'We the People,' not the states, 'ordain[ed] and establish[ed] th[e] Constitution.'

The Constitution's Supremacy Clause provides that federal law is the 'supreme Law of the Land,' and Article III of the Constitution gives to the federal judiciary the power to decide "all cases arising under the Constitution.' States, thus, cannot simply declare that the acts of the federal government are null and void. But, despite the rock-solid arguments against nullification, state governments continue to press the idea that they have the power to treat certain federal laws as null and void. These arguments, while not new, have no basis in the Constitution."

Barber: The Boy Scouts Have 'Committed Gay Activist Suicide'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber was joined by Liberty University Law School professor Cynthia Dunbar to discuss the recent vote by the Boy Scouts of America to allow participation by gay youth under the age of 18.

Barber was, of course, outraged that the Boy Scouts have embraced "sexual immorality" and declared that the organization was hypocritical for maintaining its oath that scouts will honor God and remain morally straight.

After Barber declaring that the organization has "committed gay activist suicide," Dunbar later added that the entire gay activist agenda is aimed at swaying the worldview of Americans, just as was "done in pre-Holocaust Germany, as far as propaganda and presentation and swaying the whole mindset of a nation":
