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":

Charisma: Boy Scouts 'Sold Their Souls to the Devil'

In a column for the Religious Right magazine Charisma, Republican strategist Raynard Jackson argues that the Boy Scouts “sold their souls to the devil” for having “decided to make 97 percent of its troop members uncomfortable in order to satisfy the perverted needs of 3 percent.” He writes that “radical homosexuals” have targeted the Boy Scouts as part of their scheme to turn kids into “pawns in an adult game perpetrated by immoral homosexual activists,” insisting that “there will be hell to pay as a result of that bonehead decision.”

When the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) leadership voted to allow openly homosexual kids to become Boy Scouts, they, in that one act, sold their souls to the devil. Consequently, there will be hell to pay as a result of that bonehead decision.

To make matters worse, they decided to continue to enforce their policy of not allowing participation by openly homosexual adults as troop leaders. In its bylaws, the BSA has for more than 100 years precluded homosexuals, atheists and agnostics from being involved with the Scouts. In recent years, pro-homosexual activists have increased pressure on the Scouts to rescind the policy, and they won the vote with more than 60 percent of the 1,400 eligible voters supporting the new policy.



How can you train youth in responsible citizenship, character development and self-reliance when you have adult cowards voting to shift the group’s moral compass to make radical homosexuals feel good?

You don’t give kids choices at that age; you give them direction. Kids should not be used by adults as pawns in an adult game perpetrated by immoral homosexual activists.

Furthermore, when did morals, values and beliefs become subject to the latest opinion poll or political whim? For more than 100 years, the BSA has been very clear in its position to exclude homosexuality, atheism and agnosticism.

It is estimated that gays account for 3 percent of the U.S. population. Assuming that percentage applies to youth as well, that means the BSA has decided to make 97 percent of its troop members uncomfortable in order to satisfy the perverted needs of 3 percent.

Krikorian: 'The Future of the Republic Rests' on Defeating Immigration Reform

Center for Immigration Studies director Mark Krikorian, like Phyllis Schlafly, is trying to sell Republicans on the idea that if they support comprehensive immigration reform they will face electoral doom for years to come. In an interview with Right Wing News published today, Krikorian insists that comprehensive reform would not only “destroy the Republican Party,” it would imperil “the future of the republic.”

Krikorian’s reasoning for this doomsday rhetoric is something we hear frequently from immigration opponents:  that “Hispanic voters and immigrant voters generally are predisposed to be Democrats” because “a party that’s promoting tax cuts is of no interest to them.” CIS, like Schlafly, has been urging the GOP to abandon its Latino outreach efforts and instead focus only on turning out white voters opposed to immigration reform.

Elsewhere in the interview, Krikorian mocked policies that would let legal immigrants stay in the U.S. with their U.S.-born children because “look, they’re so cute.”

How do you think we’re looking on this bill? What are you hearing? Are we on track to beat this thing or not?

There’s still an outside chance to beat it in the Senate, which would be kind of remarkable if that happened. The likelihood of it actually getting through the House is obviously dramatically less. I’m less worried about that part, although what I fear is that the House may pass something small and narrow, but as long as it has the word immigration in it, then Boehner can just get together with Reid and re-write immigration law between the two of them and then send it back saying, “Look, Conference Committee did this. This is what we came up with; vote for it or else.” Most Republicans won’t vote for it, but if Boehner is willing to bring it to the Floor for the Democrats to vote for, with 15 Republicans passing it, then we’re screwed. But it seems to me that’s the thing. In a sense, the whole thing comes down to whether Boehner is willing to destroy the Republican Party or not. It’s kind of melodramatic, but the future of the republic rests on him.

The flip side is that they have taken one part of the family immigration program which is limited and made it unlimited — and that is the spouses and minor children of Green Card holders. So, if you’re married when you get your Green Card, then your spouse gets a Green Card, too. …Also, I put air quotes around this “temporary” employment program; this legislation exempts all family members from the numerical caps on those programs. So those numbers increase dramatically under the bill and they all get to work, too. Of course, there’s no change in the citizenship laws. So all the kids that these “temporary” workers have while they’re in the United States are U.S. citizens and then, these very same people who are pushing this bill are going to say, “Well, we can’t make them leave now just because their Visa expired. They have U.S. born kids and look, they’re so cute. Look, they all have to stay; come on.” It’s just ridiculous.

Final question: One of the ways this is being sold is that it’s a way that’s going to fix everything with the Republican Party with Hispanics — that suddenly, all Hispanics are going to vote Republican after this. That doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense if you – I mean, after Reagan’s amnesty, the GOP’s numbers with Hispanics dropped. So, what’s going to happen? Is this going to be a big boom for the GOP with Hispanics if we pass this bill?

No, it’s going to be a disaster for the Republican Party for several reasons. One is Hispanic voters and immigrant voters generally are predisposed to be Democrats. They make much heavier use of public services. So, a party that’s interested in tightening up on welfare and government spending is not going to be appealing. They pay much less in taxes. Current illegal immigrants, if you look at their wages — a large majority of them have no income tax liability and that’s not going to change significantly if they’re legalized. So, a party that’s promoting tax cuts is of no interest to them. If anything, it’s quite the opposite.
 

Ryan Dobson: Dictator Obama Might Deny Healthcare to My Dad!

James Dobson’s son and Family Talk co-host Ryan Dobson appeared alongside insane End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles last week on TruNews, where the two warned that the Obama administration might deny healthcare to conservatives. That wasn’t the only conspiracy theory the duo discussed.

During the interview, Dobson pushed the discredited claim that the Obama administration blocked military intervention during the Benghazi attack. Dobson also repeated the false allegation that Operation Fast and Furious operation was designed to push gun control legislation and cited a debunked Daily Caller story that the head of the IRS visited the White House 157 times.

But then they turned to spouting even fringier conspiracy theories, including the claim that the administration will act like a dictatorship and abuse the Obamacare law to the detriment of conservatives such as James Dobson.

Dobson: The person that was targeting conservative groups now can have access to every single medical record that’s ever been documented on every American. That is scary.

Wiles: Ryan, do you know about the IRS raid of a California healthcare company and the agents seized 60 million healthcare records?

Dobson: That’s what they’re looking for. And what are they going to do with that? You can’t trust them. Clearly they are targeting people. Are they going to use that to embarrass people? Are they going to use it to deny claims and benefits? My dad is seventy-seven, he’s had a heart attack, he’s had a stroke, he’s had cancer and he’s healthier today than he was twenty years ago. He works out every single day, he eats right, he exercises, he goes to his doctors and yet under Obamacare, if he has another stroke or if he’s got medical complications he is now at an age where they would deny a lot of those claims assuming that he’s not productive.

Wiles: When you go to the hospital they’re going to run a computer check on you: who you are, what your views are, who you support politically and that’s going to make the decision about whether you get medical care. I don’t care if they say that’s conspiratorial talk, I don’t care, that’s what happens under a dictatorship.

Dobson: Yeah, it doesn’t mean it’s not true. You can call it what you want, it doesn’t mean it’s not true. Yeah.

Naturally, Wiles and Dobson ended the interview by agreeing that President Obama is a “street thug.”

Swanson: Demons Pushed for Boy Scouts to Include Gay Members to Accelerate Nation's Demise

Earlier this year on Generations Radio, Kevin Swanson argued that if the Boy Scouts of America allowed gay members it would be just like letting serial killers teach preschool. Now that delegates at the BSA national conference voted to end the ban on gay youth, Swanson said that demonic spirits gained control of the convention to push the gay-inclusive resolution through.

Later, the right-wing radio broadcaster claimed that “any parent who loves his kid” should pull their child from scouting groups that don’t oppose “civilization-destroying things like homosexuality.” He charged homosexuality with “destroying our nation and our civilizations,” calling it one of “the absolute worst abominations found in the word of God.”

You have powerful principalities; you have spiritual principalities that have a fair amount of control over large, centralized systems and these demonic systems find opportunity to control these large, centralized organizations. That’s one reason why it is so dangerous to centralized power; it is very dangerous, that’s one reason why our nation was inherently decentralized at the beginning.



If at the point where they have embraced some of the absolute worst abominations found in the word of God, friends I would think people would wake up and say, ‘you know what I just don’t want my children growing up with the idea that we accept this kind of behavior as righteous behavior.’ Friends, this is the disintegration of society and morality as we know it, this is where it happens, right here. Unless parents wake up and get their kids out of the Boy Scouts and out of the Girl Scouts, I personally think you’re going to lose your kids, you’re going to lose your kids to these worldly ideas, you’re going to lose your kids to these civilization-destroying things like homosexuality. My encouragement right now is all good people, any parent who loves his kid should get their kids out of the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts because they are endorsing some of this unrighteous behavior. This is the kind of stuff that is destroying our nation and our civilizations.

Bryan Fischer Defends Erick Erickson From 'Dragon Lady' Megyn Kelly

Fox News commentator Erick Erickson has been under attack for the last several days for remarks he made earlier this week that men should play the dominant role in society with women serving in a complimentary role.

Not surprisingly, such views have not gone over well with a lot of people, including Fox News host Megyn Kelly who had Erickson on her program today where she ripped him for his sexist views.

Even less surprisingly, Bryan Fischer, who believes that God created women to be ruled over by their husbands, has now come rushing to Erickson's defense against that "harridan Megyn Kelly."

Calling Kelly a "feminist on steroids," Fischer said she was "resentful," "angry," "hostile," and "bitter" to these "poor guys" who were just trying to defend the biblical view of the gender roles.

Fischer went on to say that Kelly was driven by an unhealthy, bitter "angry feminist energy" before finally just calling her a "dragon lady":

Another Coherent Lesson From Glenn Beck: 'You Have to Crush the Head of the Snake'

Much of Glenn Beck's daily three-hour radio program consists of him speaking for extended, uninterrupted periods during which he expounds upon various aspects of his ever-widening, all-encompassing theory about what is truly happening in the world which only he can understand.

It is during these long stream-of-consciousness monologues that Beck's thought process often become clear; not that what he is actually saying is at all clear, because it never is, but rather the way in which his mind works becomes clear to anyone watching him try to explain how a variety of disparate and unrelated topics are really all related.

It happened again on his program yesterday when he started discussing some Bill Moyers piece from the 1980s about the various stages of a successful social movement, which Beck apparently believes that he and his allies are in the middle of leading right now.

"We don't realize how close we are to really winning," Beck said ... and then he lost us once he started talking about there being no sacrifice big enough for the machine and needing to "cut the head off of this snake" which we failed to do with Iran when we went to war in Iraq, which is now leading to World War III because "Syria isn't Syria. Syria is Russia and Iran," and which is also true for the Benghazi, IRS, and AP scandals before assuring his audience that "you're close to winning":

Tony Perkins Gets Debunked On His Own Show

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins thought he was being quite clever by hosting a program about what he called the “Obama phone,” even bringing Sen. David Vitter, of all people, onto his “pro-family” radio show.

Perkins alleged that the Obama administration offered low-income people access to cell phones in order to swing the election for the President.

However, as Vitter admitted during the interview, the program to increase cellphone coverage began in 2008, the year before Obama became president.

That’s right; the Bush administration started the “Obama phone.”

E.W. Jackson: Homosexuality 'Wrong and Unacceptable'

E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP nominee for Lt. Governor, defended his frequent claims that gays and lesbians are “very sick people” who are pushing sexual abuse against children and the destruction of society in an interview with anti-gay radio host Janet Mefferd yesterday.

“Homosexuality is a sexual behavior and it is a behavior that the Bible says is wrong and unacceptable,” Jackson said. “To equate that with civil rights for black people or for women is so specious that it just amazes me that people buy into it, but they buy into it because it is emotionally appealing, it has no logic to it whatsoever.”

He also told Mefferd that gays need to “know the love of God in their lives” and that it would “betray God” to reassess his anti-gay remarks, which he said were made “without venom or hatred.”

Cathie Adams Finds Proof Grover Norquist is a Secret Muslim: 'As You See, He Has a Beard'

The Far North Dallas Tea Party posted a video this week of a PowerPoint presentation that Cathie Adams, president of the Texas Eagle Forum, gave recently on “Radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Unsurprisingly, Adams sees the influence of “stealth jihad” everywhere in American society – including in the Republican Party. In her speech, Adams claimed credit for personally bringing down the candidacy of Amir Omar, an Iranian-American Republican who ran for Congress in Texas in 2006. She also railed against former Bush administration official and conservative activist Suhail Khan, wondering, “Where did he come from? How did this man get here? Did he overstay a visa?” (The short answer, if she really wants to know, is that he was born in Colorado, so no.)

But Adams saved her true vitriol for anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist, who has provoked the wrath of anti-Muslim activists for his marriage to a Muslim woman and his efforts to reach out to Muslim conservatives. Adams warned that although “oftentimes we like what he says about economic issues,” Norquist is in fact “Trouble with a capital T” and is “showing signs of converting to Islam himself.”

Her evidence for Norquist’s secret conversion? “As you see, he has a beard.”

Glenn Beck Transforms His Network Into an Anti-Common Core Public Policy Organization

It has been several weeks since Glenn Beck spent any time talking about his Common Core conspiracy theory, despite the fact that he believes it to be "the biggest story in American history."

But just because he hasn't been talking about it much doesn't mean he hasn't been hard at work fighting against it behind the scenes.  In fact, on his program last night, he revealed that his network headquarters played host to a conference of anti-Common Core activists yesterday that was organized by none other than his best friend David Barton.

Featuring dozens of various right-wing activists, state legislators, education experts, and communications specialists, Beck's office hosted a day long conference designed to lay out a plan of attack that can be spread to Tea Party and 9/12 groups all over the nation as part of an national, coordinated effort to stop Common Core.

Beck has, in effect, turned his entire Blaze network into a public policy organization through which he is not only using his various radio and television programs to push his political agenda, but even using organizational facilities to coordinate and orchestrate a full-blown public policy campaign:

Ex-Gay Therapist Promises to Turn Gay Brains Straight

As we’ve noted, Daystar host Joni Lamb is hosting a special on homosexuality, and Lamb today brought on ex-gay activists such as Joe Dallas, Anne Paulk and Janet Boynes. One of the guests, Dr. Jerry Mungadze, claimed that his ex-gay therapy techniques have literally changed the brain structure of his gay patients and made their brains more like those of straight people. 

Watch: 

The good news is, at least with the people that I’ve seen, not a lot of people, when the healing takes place those areas of the brain that were showing the homosexuality show heterosexuality. I have had several people who when I looked at them I couldn’t tell the difference between a heterosexual who never was homosexual and them, which means the brain is able to go back and fire the way it is supposed to be, which is an argument against the whole idea of someone was born that way.

Fischer: Striking Down DOMA Will Lead to Incest, Pedophilia, Bestiality and the End of America

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer claimed that if the Supreme Court strikes down the Defense of Marriage Act, "it will be too late for America" as every state in the nation will then be forced to legalize polygamy, incest, pedophilia, and bestiality.

"It will be, at that point," Fischer said, "too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed":

Southern Baptist Leader Equates Homosexuality with Cancer

LifeSiteNews posted a column today by Southern Baptist leader Al Mohler in which he equated homosexuality with cancer: “They argue that to tell a homosexual he is a sinner is uncompassionate and intolerant. This is like arguing that a physician is intolerant because he tells a patient she has cancer.”

Mohler writes that “there is no compassion in such a deadly deception,” referring to attempts by some churches and schools to, in his words, “promote homosexuality as a legitimate and attractive lifestyle option.”

Other denominations are tottering on the brink, and without a massive conservative resistance, they are almost certain to abandon biblical truth and bless what the Bible condemns. Within a few short years, a major dividing line has become evident–with those churches endorsing homosexuality on one side, and those stubbornly resisting the cultural tide on the other. The homosexual rights movement understands that the evangelical church is one of the last resistance movements committed to a biblical morality. Because of this, the movement has adopted a strategy of isolating Christian opposition, and forcing change by political action and cultural pressure.

Can we count on evangelicals to remain steadfastly biblical on this issue? Not hardly. Scientific surveys and informal observation reveal that we have experienced a significant loss of conviction among youth and young adults. No moral revolution can succeed without shaping and changing the minds of young people and children.

Inevitably, the schools have become crucial battlegrounds for the culture war. The Christian worldview has been undermined by pervasive curricula that teach moral relativism, reduce moral commandments to personal values, and promote homosexuality as a legitimate and attractive lifestyle option.



The tragic fact is that every congregation is almost certain to include persons struggling with homosexual desire or even involved in homosexual acts. Outside the walls of the church, homosexuals are waiting to see if the Christian church has anything more to say, after we declare that homosexuality is a sin. Liberal churches have redefined compassion to mean that the church changes its message to meet modern demands.

They argue that to tell a homosexual he is a sinner is uncompassionate and intolerant. This is like arguing that a physician is intolerant because he tells a patient she has cancer. But, in the culture of political correctness, this argument holds a powerful attraction. Biblical Christians know that compassion requires telling the truth, and refusing to call sin something sinless. To hide or deny the sinfulness of sin is to lie, and there is no compassion in such a deadly deception.

Barton: 'You Can't Drink Starbucks and be Biblically Right'

Recently, David Barton delivered his stock presentation at during a service at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama where he once again falsely asserted that the Supreme Court banned the practice of requiring Bible reading in public school because it could give students brain damage, as well as the various other false claims that he routinely makes.

But, as he frequently does, he added in a few new bits of information; in this case, a  pronouncement that Christians cannot drink Starbucks coffee because the company supports marriage equality.

"Biblically, there is no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God," Barton said, adding "I'm sorry, you've got to find some other coffee to drink.  You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing.  It's just a real simple principle":
