Fischer Doubles Down On His Photoshop Theory And Tosses In Some Sexism To Boot

Yesterday we noted that Bryan Fischer is now promoting a theory that President Obama was photoshopped into the iconic image showing the situation room during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Fischer was widely mocked for the suggestion which means, of course, that he has doubled down and dedicated two segments of his radio broadcast today to defending his theory.

His defense was predictably idiotic, as perfectly exemplified by this section in which he suggests that President Obama is wearing a windbreaker in the photo because this was only image that could be found of him where was was not looking down on everyone.

Fischer literally stated that "President Obama never looks up at anything; he looks down on everybody at all times in all circumstances. He's got his nose up in the air looking down on you, looking down on me, looking down on the press, looking down on the American people."

As such, the only image that could be found of him looking in the proper direction was this one, which was why they had to concoct a phony story that Obama had been out on the golf course earlier in the day.

Amazingly, that was not the most idiotic part of his statement, as he then went on to state that because former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had her hand over her mouth in the photo, it demonstrates that she is not fit to be President.

"She's horrified, she frightened," Fischer said. "Is that the woman you want to get the 3am phone call? You want her to get the 3 am phone call? Seriously! She's sitting there at the table with her hand over her mouth, in shock.  Now the guys around the table, they're sober, they're focused, they're intent, but they are not freaked out.  Hillary Clinton is freaked out by what she is seeing on the screen. Do we want her taking the 3 am phone call? I don't think so":

Beck: 'Oprah Winfrey, You Disgust Me'

Over the last week, Glenn Beck has repeatedly attacked Oprah Winfrey for daring to compare the Trayvon Martin case to the murder of Emmett Till and, in response, has been focusing on a gruesome 2007 murder of a white couple that was tortured and brutalized by five African Americans, demanding to know why the media has not been covering this story.

Apparently the simple fact that it happened five years ago is no excuse for Beck, who returned to it again today on his radio program during an extended rant against Winfrey, which culminated with Beck declaring that Winfrey disgusts him as he self-righteously compared himself to the Statue of Liberty.

"Oprah Winfrey, you disgust me!" Beck fumed, as he ranted that she has overcome so much in her life and achieved wild success, only to turn around and tell us "white people are the problem."

Beck then grew very somber as he declared "Oprah, I choose to be the person that America thought you were," calling on people to gather around him as a beacon of hope.

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free," he said. "Give me the ones that you have told 'you'll never make it.' Send them to me. The tempest-tost, because I hold my lamp beside a golden door":

Bauer: Supreme Court's 'Judicial Terrorism' on Gay Marriage Puts America on 'The Verge of Criminalizing the Book of Genesis'

Gary Bauer yesterday marked the anniversary of the shooting at the Washington D.C. office of the Family Research Council, the group he used to lead, by asking members of his Campaign for Working Families to work against marriage equality.

He compared the attempted shooting by Floyd Lee Corkins, who was convicted of committing an act of terrorism, with the “judicial terrorism” of the Supreme Court in the two recent marriage equality cases: “while Corkins thankfully failed in his attack on FRC, five liberal justices on our Supreme Court committed an act of judicial terrorism that struck at the very foundation of our constitutional republic.”

Bauer said that the court dismissed the “consent of the governed” and “rejected thousands of years of Judeo-Christian understanding” in their rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. “It seems as though America is on the verge of criminalizing the Book of Genesis,” Bauer continued, warning that along with the health care reform law the “danger to religious liberty cannot be overstated.”

But while Corkins thankfully failed in his attack on FRC, five liberal justices on our Supreme Court committed an act of judicial terrorism that struck at the very foundation of our constitutional republic. The court's liberal majority accepted a radical redefinition of marriage and imposed its morality on the rest of society.

In doing so, five unelected judges rejected thousands of years of Judeo-Christian understanding, as well as congressional statutes, and set the stage for invalidating the will of the people in more than two-dozen states that have voted to maintain the traditional definition of marriage. Does the consent of the governed matter at all anymore?

It seems as though America is on the verge of criminalizing the Book of Genesis. And with Obamacare's assault on conscience, the danger to religious liberty cannot be overstated.

Rios: 'God Will Even the Score' with Obama and Gays

After denouncing First Amendment protections for Muslim-Americans, American Family Association talk show host Sandy Rios said that despite the political setbacks of the Religious Right, “God will even the score” with President Obama and “homosexual activists.” She said that Obama and “homosexual activists” will be punished in the end for “breaking all kinds of moral laws and mocking everyone in the process.”

I would not want to be in the shoes of any of the left right now. I would not want to be in Barack Obama’s shoes. I would not want to be in the shoes of homosexual activists. I say that with humility and with fear for them because God will even the score, he will sort things out, he will be God and he will not be mocked. Whereas they think they are getting away with breaking all kinds of moral laws and mocking everyone in the process, they just don’t know God, they don’t know who they are up against and we do. And that should bring out some mercy in us because I wouldn’t want to be—what did that old evangelist say: ‘it’s a fearful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God.’

Fischer: Liberals Angry At Rodeo Clown's Blasphemous Idolatry

As we noted yesterday, we don't know what has gotten into Bryan Fischer lately, but he has been making statements over the last week or so that are so far out there that we don't even understand what he is talking about anymore.

For example, on his radio broadcast yesterday afternoon, he dedicated a few minutes to discussing the controversy over the Obama mask-wearing rodeo clown during which he claimed that the reason liberals are upset about it is because they see it as a blasphemous form of idolatry.

Fischer says that since liberals see Obama as the Messiah, just as the Ten Commandments declare that graven images shall not be made, they think that someone wearing an Obama mask is blasphemy and idolatry.

We literally have no idea what he is talking about:

Wiles: Obama, McCain and Graham Transforming US 'Into an Islamic Bastion'

Erick Stakelbeck of the Christian Broadcasting Network joined fellow conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles yesterday, where they wondered why John McCain and Lindsey Graham have “sided” with the Muslim Brotherhood. Wiles said that they are “carrying out the instructions of their master,” and like President Obama, “are in the pockets of radical Muslims.”

“This country is being converted while we watch into an Islamic bastion,” the TruNews host warned, “it’s frightening.”

Klingenschmitt: Obama Creating Atheist Military to Attack Christians

Once again warning of imminent “government persecution” of Christians, “Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt told Dove TV that the Obama administration is bent on driving Christians out of the Armed Forces in order to create an all-atheist military.

The “atheist left,” Klingenschmitt claims, wants to “get rid of all the Christians in the military so they can take over. Now we see the Obama administration is stockpiling armored personnel carriers, and the Department of Homeland Security [has] billions of rounds of ammunition; who are they going to use that against? If there’s no Christians serving in the government, eventually that is all going to be turned against us.”

“Don’t think that can’t happen,” he cautioned, telling Christians to expect increasing “persecution.”

Watch:

Fischer: Obama Was Photoshopped Into Bin Laden Raid Situation Room Photo

We are not sure what is going on over at the American Family Association but for the last week or so, Bryan Fischer has been coming up with some stuff that is crazy, even by his standards. 

And that trend continues as today, on his radio broadcast, Fischer shared his theory that President Obama had been photoshopped into the iconic photo of the situation room taken during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

As Fischer sees it, Obama wanted to be nowhere near the room while the raid took place in case anything went wrong.  But once it was a success, he had himself photoshopped into the photo:

Glenn Beck Psychoanalyzes President Obama

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today with a truly fascinating psychological analysis of President Obama during which he proclaimed that Obama is a coward who feels like he doesn't fit in and is so lacking in self-confidence that he cries himself to sleep at night, curled up in the fetal position because he is terrified that the world is going to realize that he is a total fraud.

Ironically, the entire segment seemed like little more than an exercise in projection to us:

Will Immigration Reform Open the Door to Putin's Gay Spies and Nuclear Weapon Smuggling?

TruNews host Rick Wiles, who is determined to stop demonic immigration reform efforts, spoke with Bob Trent of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Agents yesterday about the grave implications of the Senate immigration bill.

Wiles told Trent that he specifically fears that Russian president Vladimir Putin will send spies posing as gay refugees to America: “If Mr. Putin wanted to get spies into this country, all he has to do is send them here and tell them to say that they are gay and they’re fleeing homophobia in Russia. They’re going to be granted immediate asylum.”

The End Times broadcaster also described a conversation with Stanislav Lunev, who told him that the Russians made plans in the 1970s to “employ an illegal immigrant” to smuggle nuclear suitcase bombs into the US.

Jesse Lee Peterson: Pull Kids Out of California Schools to Protest Transgender Students

Jesse Lee Peterson is calling on California parents to withdraw their “normal children” from public schools to protest a new education law protecting the rights of transgender students. Peterson, a California-based Tea Party and anti-immigrant activist, says in a press release today that “decent parents” should “boycott and pull their kids out” of school so they do “not have to endure this type of confusion and psychological trauma” and “indoctrination.”

“This is an outrage and an attack on the conscience of impressionable children and their parents,” said Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND (Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny). “Parents who have the misfortune of having their kids in California public schools should boycott and pull their kids out. Normal children should not have to endure this type of confusion and psychological trauma.”



“Shame of Jerry Brown and California Democrats!” said Rev. Peterson. “AB 1266 will not stop bullying. It will subject these transgender students to more ridicule in locker rooms and bring on lawsuits. Governor Brown signed this bill on the first day of school knowing that decent parents who object to this type of indoctrination would be left with few options. It’s time to stop social experimenting on children—and it’s time to exit failing public schools!”

No, Common Core Does Not Teach That 3 x 4 = 11

As we were saying just the other day, the AFA's Bryan Fischer flat out does not care about the truth of the claims that he makes on his radio program, provided that he has some source to which he can point to support them, no matter how unreliable or misleading that source may be.

And he provided another example of this on his radio program yesterday when he played a clip of some educator stating that, under Common Core, it doesn't matter if students think that 3 x 4 = 11, so long as they can explain how they arrived at that answer, they will be correct.

Fischer was outraged, saying "this is somebody that is training teachers on how to implement this Common Core curriculum and she says 'look, we will be happy if a student says 3 x 4 is 11, we will accept that answer, we will be happy with that answer, we will affirm that answer":

Of course, if you bother to do ten seconds of research, you can easily find the longer, original video that doesn't get cut off right before the speaker says that any student who answered that 3 x 4 = 11 would be wrong and would be corrected:

Scarborough: Obama's Condemnation of Russian Anti-Gay Law 'Puts Our Country in a Very Precarious Place'

Rick Scarborough hosted Kris Mineau, who leads the Massachusetts Family Institute, on a Tea Party Unity conference call today to discuss his fight against LGBT rights efforts in the Bay State. Mineau told listeners to worry about the State Department’s “worldwide advancement of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights” and understand the true meaning of President Obama’s statement that Russia’s ban on pro-gay rights speech violates “basic morality.”

According to Mineau, Obama’s opposition to the Russian law means that “if you or I oppose same-sex marriage, we are immoral.” Scarborough, meanwhile, added that “what the President is now saying is that God’s word is a direct assault on people—the lesbian and gay community—that God’s word is clearly wrong and that puts our country in a very precarious place.”

Klingenschmitt: Wendy Davis Is 'Ruled By A Demon Of Murder' And Should Be Prosecuted

As we noted just yesterday, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt tends to see demonic spirits behind just about everything, including Texas state Senator Wendy Davis' support for reproductive choice and her possible run for governor.

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" show, "Dr. Chaps" said that Davis, an attorney, is not qualified to serve as Governor of Texas because she is "ruled by a demon of murder" and that she should, in fact, "be prosecuted herself, probably for having facilitated so many abortions in her own state":

Beck: Anti-Obama Rodeo Clown Is 'A Very Brave Artist' And Victim Of McCarthyism

Last night, Glenn Beck's opening monologue was another one of his "history lessons" that was so genuinely nonsensical and incoherent that we literally cannot even figure out a way of editing the video so that it makes any sense. 

Basically, Beck expanded upon his belief that the controversy over the Missouri rodeo clown is a sign that progressives are freaking out because they know that their efforts to implement revolution are falling apart, as just as the progressives during the Woodrow Wilson-era, and during the New Deal, and during the Vietnam War, all likewise failed to successfully implement their own revolutions.

Then, citing recent comments made by Bono and Ashton Kutcher, Beck linked it all to Martin Luther King and John Lennon and the Beatles' song "Revolution" as he declared that it all somehow proves that the 9/12 and Tea Party Patriots are on the verge of achieving victory.

Like we said, none of it made any sense right from the start, like when Beck said that the fall-out from the rodeo clown performance is modern day McCarthyism and no different than book burning, because this particular rode clown was really "a very brave artist" ... which can only be properly explained by the game of Kerplunk:

Klayman: NSA Surveillance Meant to Oppress White People and Make Them Pay Reparations

In a very reasonable and rational column titled “Obama’s Mein Kampf,” Larry Klayman insists that the “Muslim megalomaniac” and “neo-national socialist Fuhrer” Obama is “taking a page from Hitler” with regards to the NSA surveillance program.

He asserts that President Obama’s press conference on the NSA was an attempt to “fool the citizenry” and hide the truth that “at the heart of NSA-gate; a means to keep whitey and whitey’s allies down as Obama dismantles and deconstructs the nation by having them pay their ‘fair share’ in reparations.”

Having been caught with his hand in the NSA cookie jar, the "spymaster in chief," Barack Hussein Obama, shamelessly and deceitfully used his press conference of last Friday to effectively appear to embrace the so-called leaks of whistleblower Edward Snowden – who he obviously would like to see disappear – and conjure up what is not only an opportunistic but also a faux review of the spook agency's surveillance on over 300 million Americans.

And, after having committed a number of "phony scandals" from Fast and Furious, to Benghazi-gate, to Navy SEAL-gate, to IRS-gate, to Birth Certificate/Eligibility-gate, to now NSA-gate, all of a sudden the neo-national socialist Führer develops a newfound appreciation for the rule of law and respect for our Constitution. How convenient given the boiling caldron of criticism, even from some elements of the left, that Obama now finds himself. In effect, Obama's subterfuge is nothing more than a clever ruse, taking a page from Hitler prior to his rise to power, to fool the citizenry that it is safe at the hands of his corrupt administration.



Indeed, during the Clinton years, while Bill and Hillary vociferously disclaimed any role in the deaths of more than 80 key witnesses and others with some involvement in their myriad of scandals, they were happy to have their henchmen leave a list of these dead persons on the office chairs of inconveniently "alive" witnesses like Linda Tripp and other White House whistleblowers, who had the goods on their various crimes. On a smaller scale than Obama's unbridled massive abuse of government power, this was a not-too-subtle attempt to intimidate and silence them from spilling the beans and providing evidence to send the Clintons to prison, which is where they belong. Outrageously, today, 13 years since the Clintons left the White House, we, the more than 300 million Americans whose confidential communications have been violated by this Muslim megalomaniac, are now the hands-on witnesses of Obama's attempt to rule and transform the nation as he alone sees fit – by fear. And, we, the American people, are in danger.


But despite last Friday's dog-and-pony show, We the People increasingly can no longer be fooled.

A growing number of patriots – white and black – people of faith, Christians, Jews and concerned citizens are in the process of waking up from their long slumber of the last five years in particular. We are no longer willing to be made to feel ashamed of our heritage and who we are and are thus losing our sense of guilt that Obama and his ilk have tried to instill upon us, and are preparing to legally fight back.

In this regard, perhaps it was Obama's bigoted remarks after the George Zimmerman trial – where he effectively rejected the jury's verdict of not guilty with a statement that he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago – that truly unmasked his hateful intentions to make "whitey" and the others pay back "his people" for prior discrimination. And, indeed, this is what is at the heart of NSA-gate; a means to keep whitey and whitey's allies down as Obama dismantles and deconstructs the nation by having them pay their "fair share" in reparations.

Given these stakes and Obama's master plan, it is no wonder that the privacy and intimate communications of all of us are now in government hands. Obama and his comrades have made it clear that if we object to and fight against his agenda, we will then pay the price, no matter what disingenuous and deceptive propaganda he attempts to spew to the contrary to lull us again into submission.

Erik Rush: Obama and Oprah Will Use 'The Butler' To Stoke Anti-White Violence

After appearing on Fox News’ Hannity last night, Erik Rush published a column on WorldNetDaily today predicting that President Obama will use the new movie about an African American White House butler, along with other efforts “to rile black Americans,” to provoke a race war against whites.

Rush claims that “The Butler,” which stars Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, is part of a plan “to initiate widespread civil unrest at the president’s push of a button” and add to the “instances of black-on-white violent crime since Obama came into office.”

Winfrey is promoting a new film, “The Butler,” which chronicles a black butler’s years of service in the White House during the Civil Rights Movement. While the subject matter should make for interesting fare, given Winfrey’s sensibilities and associates (like the Obamas, for example) there is little doubt that the film will be used in the ongoing effort to rile black Americans. As I’ve said in the past, racial tension is one of the many circuits the administration has constructed that, when completed, may be used to initiate widespread civil unrest at the president’s push of a button.



There have been quite a few instances of black-on-white violent crime since Obama came into office; these have gone largely unreported by the establishment press for reasons that should be obvious. The point is that some blacks have become sufficiently motivated to perpetrate these crimes, and it is all – all – due to the lies into which they have subscribed.



All of this culminates in successful blacks like Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Jay-Z and the perennially brainless Kanye West being able to carp about rampant institutional racism in America and not get laughed into the adjoining star system. Rather, their rhetorical idiocy is eagerly digested by millions (here, it actually is millions) of black Americans, and those who attempt to enlighten or defend blacks’ humanity are branded as racists.

There is, of course, a certain irony in the fact that President Obama’s ethnicity is the only thing that has allowed him to get away with a myriad of high crimes and misdemeanors. Even with the countenance of the press, any of our previous chief executives, having committed the same offenses and executed similar policies, would have run so far afoul of the people and other elected officials to warrant removal with all due speed.

Russian Lawmaker Who Authored 'Homosexual Propaganda' Bill Now Wants To Investigate Critics

Yelena Mizulina, the Russian lawmaker described as “Vladimir Putin’s new morality crusader” and co-author of the country’s new “homosexual propaganda” ban hailed by Religious Right activists in the US, is now going after opponents of her policies.

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports that Mizulina is having authorities question journalists, politicians and comedians who criticized her ultraconservative laws. One politician said he was quizzed about the details of “Mizulina’s gay-oral phobias” and RFE/RL’s Dmitry Volchek writes that the “news agency Rosbalt says investigators asked for the names of journalists who have written about Mizulina.”

An online petition, noting Mizulina’s aggressive anti-gay activism and attempt to ban swear words on the internet, requests that the health ministry “check the mental health” of Mizulina to determine if she is fit to serve in the Duma.

The barrage of caustic jokes it has generated on the Internet has riled Mizulina, who now accuses several journalists and public figures of defaming her by claiming she is bent on eradicating oral sex in Russia.

Socialite and opposition activist Ksenia Sobchak, who was interrogated last week after making such a claim on Twitter, says investigators repeatedly asked her why she thought Mizulina held such views.

Journalists Yelena Kostyuchenko and Olga Bakushinskaya, as well as former Deputy Prime Minister Alfred Kokh, have also been questioned.

"Two lieutenant colonels from the Russian Investigative Committee clarified for three hours details about Mizulina's gay-oral phobias and my own relation to this," Kokh wrote on his blog.

Sobchak said a dozen people are on what she branded the "Mizulina List."



Insulting an official is an offense in Russia that carries fines of up to 40,000 rubles ($1,200) and up to one year of community service. Libel is punishable by a fine of up to 1 million rubles ($30,000).

Internet users accuse the authorities of seeking to silence one of the last arenas of free speech in Russia.

The news agency Rosbalt says investigators asked for the names of journalists who have written about Mizulina and denounced the request as the first "attempt by a Duma deputy to interfere in the agency's editorial policies" in its 12-year existence. An online petition launched by stand-up comedian Yury Khovansky, who is calling for the lawmaker to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, has already gathered more than 60,000 signatures.

If signed by 100,000 people, the petition will be submitted to the State Duma.

"What she is doing, and this 'Mizulina List,' is an unprecedented threat to freedom of speech," Khovansky says. "If people are now prosecuted and fined for expressing their opinion on the actions of officials -- who are actually elected by the people -- you can just imagine what will happen to media freedom and openness more generally."

Mizulina, whom detractors have nicknamed "The Inquisitor," has tirelessly warned against Russia's moral and demographic decline. She and her committee have penned a string of initiatives aimed at instilling traditional values in Russians, including a ban on cursing and a tax on divorce.

Beck: 'Today I Declare Myself Officially A Rodeo Clown'

When Glenn Beck is not telling his audience that the world is falling apart and warning them that the End Times are just around the corner, he is busy telling them that things are getting better and promising that they're right on the verge of finally winning.

Back on the upswing this week, Beck sought to rally the troops again today on his radio broadcast by stating that the controversy over the rodeo clown in Missouri is proof that liberals "are terrified" that decent Americans are waking up and are doing everything they can to try and shut them up.

Beck warned that if the rodeo clown association bans this person responsible for this performance, they will "forever damage rodeos; you'll shut them down" because "clear-thinking, common-sense farmers, cowboys, [and] straight-ahead Americans" will stop attending.

He then went on to assert that liberals are trying to destroy this clown because "they're terrified; they have got to shut you up; they have got to get you so afraid that you will not say anything, that you'll continue to sit down.  They are terrified; they know it's about the fall apart."

"They know this thing is falling apart," Beck bellowed, "that's why they're going after the rodeo clown; they're freaking out. Good! Advance, America! Advance! Don't you dare retreat, don't you dare sit down."

And with that, Beck proclaimed "today I declare myself officially a rodeo clown":

Sandy Rios Fears Food Stamps Will Aid Islamists and Palestinian Refugees Obama Didn't Resettle Here

American Family Association talk show host Sandy Rios, like her colleague Bryan Fischer, enjoys repeating right-wing material — often based on email chains — as absolute fact without any evidence. Rios, who has previously repeated the widely debunked rumor (which probably originated from this chain email) that Obamacare has a specific exemption for Muslim-Americans, on her radio program today asserted that President Obama kicked off his first term as President by resettling thousands of Palestinian refugees in the U.S.

She made the false claim while criticizing the Michigan Department of Human Services for having an Arabic-language food assistance application and help-line. Rios also warned that Michigan is “brimming with Islamists”:

You may remember that President Obama ordered the resettling of thousands of Palestinians right after he became president, he brought them over at our expense and I don’t know if they all went to Michigan but tons of them did. Of course before that Michigan, certainly the Detroit area is just brimming with Islamists; it’s pretty frightening actually. I think it is frightening because they are Islamists and they are in the heart of our country, and now they are qualified for food stamps as well. We know that in Michigan, Muslim men have multiple wives even though we don’t allow that in this country. They do still practice it so they go in and sign up for food assistance…. Is Arabic going to be the new language—how many languages are we going to have that are going to be officially acknowledged in America?

Of course, her assertion about Obama resettling thousands of Palestinians was based on a discredited chain email.

As both FactCheck.org and Snopes.com point out, Obama—like President George W. Bush before him—did authorize funding to help Palestinian refugees, but not to resettle them in the United States. The money would go to groups providing emergency food, medical and housing aid, but did not include provisions on migration or resettlement. In fact, the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, which was in charge of the money, told FactCheck.org, “We don’t resettle out of the West Bank and Gaza, full stop.”

Since Michigan has close to 200,000 Arab-American residents [PDF], it isn’t unreasonable that the state has an Arabic-language food assistance form.

The majority of Arab-Americans are Christian, but of course the facts wouldn’t stop Rios from using the first myth about mass-resettlement of Palestinians to create a second conspiracy theory: that Obama is now giving food stamps to radical, polygamous Islamists.
