Beck Warns Wave Of Immigrant Children Will Create Israeli/Palestinian-Type Conflict In America

On last night's television program, Glenn Beck asserted that President Obama was "directly responsible" for the waves of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexican border so far this year, saying that Obama's announcement in 2012 that the Department of Homeland Security would temporarily halt the deportation of children who were brought into this country illegally by their parents was code to parents in Latin America to start sending their kids to the United States in order to overwhelm the system so that Obama could then use it in his effort to pass immigration reform and amnesty.

On his radio show today, Beck expanded upon this theory, declaring that this flood of children will result in an Israeli/Palestinian-like crisis here in America by creating permanent camps along the border and then using the existence of these camps to eventually press for the United States to hand Arizona back to Mexico.

"What are they doing to our border? They are making camps," Beck said. "I’m warning you right now, mark my words: If it lasts five to 10 years, they will say exactly the same thing. ‘You know what? We should give them their own state. We should give them Arizona. We took it from them in the first place. That’s land that we stole from Mexico.’"

"You mark my words: It’s coming," he continued. "They are making a Palestinian plea, and you’re watching the beginnings of it right now. Mark my words: That’s going to go all over today, and everybody is going to call me crazy. Whatever":

Allen West Blames Liberals For Radio Show Caller Who Wanted KKK To Kill Obama

During an appearance last week on “Sandy Rios In The Morning,” former congressman Allen West responded to a caller who said “the Ku Klux Klan ought to hang” President Obama by blaming liberals, alleging that the caller was a left-wing “plant” trying to make conservatives look bad.

“This is what they do, they’re very smart like that,” West said, before once again demanding Obama’s impeachment over the Bergdahl exchange.

West also wondered if Obama is sane, telling Rios that the Bergdahl exchange “really questions his competence and his sanity.”

Pat Buchanan: 'Third World Invasion' Causing West To 'Disappear Forever'

In his column today, Pat Buchanan responds to a flawed and misleading Center for Immigration Studies report by spouting off on “the Third World invasion of the United States.”

“[P]eoples from failed states of the Third World are steadily filling up our countries and reducing our native-born into slowly shrinking national majorities,” he laments. “If this continues over many more decades, Western nations as we knew them will disappear forever, and be remade in the image of those who have newly arrived, and the countries whence they came.”

How goes the Third World invasion of the United States?

America and the West must face up to what is happening to our countries and our civilization. Or we are going to lose them both forever.

Treating with contempt U.S. and European laws, peoples from failed states of the Third World are steadily filling up our countries and reducing our native-born into slowly shrinking national majorities.

If this continues over many more decades, Western nations as we knew them will disappear forever, and be remade in the image of those who have newly arrived, and the countries whence they came.

When, ever, did Americans vote for this?

What would constitute a pro-American immigration policy?

A moratorium on all immigration until unemployment among U.S. citizens falls below five percent. A 15-foot security fence from San Diego to the Gulf, with Border Patrol outposts every 10 miles. Fines and community service for businessmen who hire illegal aliens.

Klingenschmitt: 'The Ultimate Hate Speech Is To Endorse Homosexuality'

On today's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Gordon Klingenschmitt praised Colorado bakery owner Jack Phillips for his refusal to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, declaring that not telling gays that they are destined for Hell is a form of "hate speech."

"By endorsing their sin" by making a cake for a gay couple, Klingenschmitt said about Phillips, "he would not be showing compassion to them; he would be showing cruelty. So the ultimate hate speech is to endorse homosexuality because you give them the impression that it's okay and that deceives them and ultimately trips them into Hell":

Pat Robertson Thinks 'Obama Has Just Gone Crazy'

Today on the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson blamed President Obama for the increase in unaccompanied children, predominantly from Central American countries, who are crossing the southern border, arguing that it “obviously is being done by the highest levels of this government.”

“It’s like Obama has just gone crazy,” Robertson said. “Is this the way to get immigration reform? I don’t believe it.”

Vic Eliason Warns Marriage Equality 'Defiles' People And 'Turns Them Into Perverts'

Vic Eliason of the Wisconsin-based group Voice of Christian Youth America was not pleased with a federal judge’s decision last week to strike down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, a point which he expounded on at length on yesterday’s edition of “Crosstalk.”

“This same-sex marriage is a branch off of — it’s promiscuity, it’s passion out of control, it’s a violation of natural order, it’s a violation of literally — you cannot procreate — and they have literally defiled the very definitions of who people are and turned them into perverts,” he said.

Eliason’s guest, Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council and Wisconsin Family Action, agreed with his assessment and claimed the judge effectively said she “knows better than God Almighty.”

Beck: Obama Is Fomenting Revolution By Making The Tea Party Feel Invisible

During his morning staff meeting yesterday, Glenn Beck once again lectured his staff about how President Obama is intentionally fomenting revolution in this country by intentionally ignoring the Tea Party and making them feel invisible.

"You have revolution when people feel invisible," Beck said. "When people feel invisible, they go for their guns. That is exactly what [President Obama] is doing."

Saying that while Obama is elevating gays and thugs and radicals and illegal immigrants, he is systematically telling Tea Party activists that they don't matter and dismissing their concerns.

"This government has taken a group of people," Beck proclaimed, "and diminished them and given them the Harry Potter cloak of invisibility":

Tony Perkins Attacks 'Supposed' Christians Who Support Reproductive Rights

In recent weeks, the Religious Right has caught wind of a “pastoral letter” from Planned Parenthood’s clergy advocacy group that has been posted on the organization’s website for several months and states, “The decision about abortion is a matter between a woman, her conscience, and/or her God, and that those close to her should offer support in any way they can.”

Upon learning about the letter, the Alliance Defending Freedom offered to send a copy of the Bible to every Planned Parenthood clinic, Robert Jeffress called the letter “ridiculous” and WorldNetDaily blasted “Planned Parenthood’s Pastoral Letter from Hell.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins also weighed in in an email to members, writing, “Women are used to Planned Parenthood preying on them -- but praying on them? That's a new approach altogether.”

In a statement to Time yesterday, members of the Planned Parenthood clergy board responded to Perkins, saying, “Too often, the voices of negative religious discourse around abortion are those that loudly proclaim their teachings are the only ones that are valid. They try to shame and judge women who are making deeply personal and often complex decisions about their pregnancies.”

To which Perkins, of course, responded by implying that Christians who support reproductive rights are just “supposed” Christians, who “do not fully understand” the issue of abortion rights.

This line of argument is not a huge surprise coming from Perkins, who recently claimed that pro-gay clergy don’t have the same religious rights as conservatives because religious liberty is a freedom that’s based on orthodox religious viewpoints.”

Three clergy board members—the Board’s chair, Reform Jewish Rabbi Jon Adland of Canton, Ohio; vice-chair Rev. Susan Russell, of All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, Calif.; and Reform Jewish Rabbi Dennis Ross of Concerned Clergy for Choice in Albany, N.Y.—responded to Perkins’ criticism against their work in a statement to TIME. “Too often, the voices of negative religious discourse around abortion are those that loudly proclaim their teachings are the only ones that are valid,” they say. “They try to shame and judge women who are making deeply personal and often complex decisions about their pregnancies.”

For these Christian and Jewish leaders, their efforts far from spiritualize abortion–they defend a woman’s religious liberty. “As clergy members, we work every day to make clear that everyone is entitled to follow their own conscience and religious beliefs; what they don’t have the right to do is impose those beliefs on everyone else,” they say.

As ministers, they also believe they also have a spiritual responsibility to care for and counsel families in their communities. “As faith leaders, we recognize that women need to be supported and receive compassionate care while making deeply personal decisions based on faith and conscience,” they say. “It is important that women know that there are people of faith who respect a woman’s ability to make these deeply personal decisions in consultation with her family, her doctor, and her faith.”

Perkins, however, suggests that Christianity and Planned Parenthood are incompatible. “A straightforward reading of the Bible shows that since the beginning God held human life to be sacred, and values human life, no matter the stage,” Perkins says. “I imagine that Christians, supposed or true, who support Planned Parenthood either do not fully understand what abortion is, what its physical and emotional consequences are or what Planned Parenthood as an organization actually stands for and advocates.”

Janet Porter Wants Republicans 'Nationwide' To Adopt Texas GOP's Ex-Gay Resolution

Janet Porter of Faith 2 Action is so happy about the Republican Party of Texas’s decision to embrace ex-gay therapy as part of its new far-right platform that she wants similar language endorsing the pseudo-science “adopted nationwide”:

She might find allies in Tony Perkins and David Barton, members of the 2012 Republican National Committee platform committee who are both vocal supporters of ex-gay therapy.

Barton, a former vice chairman of the Texas Republican Party, bragged in 2012 of getting 70 of his 71 resolutions approved by the RNC, and Perkins released a statement yesterday praising the Texas GOP’s ex-gay resolution.

In 2012, Perkins claimed that his Family Research Council joined forces with Eagle Forum to shape the national GOP platform. Eagle Forum is the same group that successfully added the ex-gay language to the Texas GOP platform.

Klingenschmitt: Teaching Kids About Gay Marriage Is Mind Rape

Earlier this year, Scotland legalized gay marriage and now a debate has broken out over whether teachers and parents who object to it should be allowed to opt out of having to teach about it or have their children learn about it during sex education classes.

On yesterday's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Gordon Klingenschmitt explained that the real issue at stake here is whether or not children will be "recruited into perversion," saying that those who support teaching kids about gay marriage are declaring, in essence, that "every child has a right to be raped, at least in their mind, by somebody who is going to pervert them and recruit them into sexual immorality":

Alex Jones Warns Civil War Is Coming After Las Vegas Shooting

Alex Jones has dedicated today’s edition of InfoWars to blaming the Las Vegas shooting on a government conspiracy and explaining how he would have planned his own false flag operation if he worked as a government agent.

Naturally, he predicted that all of the supposed smears against himself and the Tea Party will cause more right-wing conspiracy theorists to carry out violent attacks like the one in Las Vegas and eventually bring about a civil war that will leave millions dead.

Rick Santorum Seems To Think His Movie Was More Successful Than 'Noah'

Despite the fact that Rick Santorum’s movie, “The Christmas Candle,” made just $2.3 million, well short of its $7 million budget, he nonetheless claims that it was an “authentic” film that was much more successful than Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah.”

“One of the reasons that Noah had such a great splash and then died like a rock, it sank, was that it wasn’t true, wasn’t authentic,” the former senator and presidential candidate said of the movie that grossed well over $300 million.

The former senator told Christian Today that his company, EchoLight Studios, can help “reclaim the public square” and make the church “the centre of culture.”

"Popular culture has an impact on the government, on culture and the direction that policies take. As a moviegoer who appreciates good quality art and entertainment, it's always been an interest of mine to see that impact," he says.

He took up the opportunity to lead the team at EchoLight after being approached by a friend in the business who wanted to make movies "consistent with the guiding principles of our country - in particular, portraying faith in an authentic way to movie-going audiences".

"That had a really great appeal to me, to make movies based on universal truths and that deal with faith in a way that is more representative of how it actually affects people and their lives, as opposed to the contrivance born of other, Hollywood, films," Santorum says.



Santorum is certain that popular culture is the means to effect change. "I use this phrase all the time: that politics is downstream from culture," he insists.

"If we want to impact the political system and shape the country, then we have to reclaim the public square and make an impact in popular culture."

The focus of EchoLights, which will debut one of its first movies, Hoovey, next year, is to "turn the industry on its head" and use churches to premiere films, rather than leave them as an afterthought. Santorum explains: "We want the Church to be the centre of culture, which it has been missing...We're about enabling the Church to do what it was designed to do – to be salt and light.



"One of the reasons that Noah had such a great splash and then died like a rock, it sank, was that it wasn't true, wasn't authentic," he says.

Steve Stockman Suggests Obama Is A Secret Muslim And Terrorist Sympathizer

Speaking with NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg last week, Rep. Steve Stockman insisted that President Obama “has a grudge against the military and the American people” and a “propensity to fall again and again on the side of terrorists” in countries like Egypt, Syria and Libya.

“A lot of people say he’s not something, we can’t say it on the radio, but if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, I think it might be a duck,” he said, suggesting that Obama is a secret Muslim.

Lifting a joke from Sen. Rand Paul, the Texas Republican also suggested that the administration exchange National Security Advisor Susan Rice for a U.S. Marine held in a Mexican jail on weapons charges.

Fischer Upset Pope Francis Allowed Worship Of The 'Demon God' Allah At The Vatican

On Sunday, Pope Francis hosted an interfaith "prayer gathering" at the Vatican featuring Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as well as Jewish, Muslim and Christian spiritual leaders.

Bryan Fischer, of course, is not happy about it, mainly because Muslims worship a "demon god."

Saying that interfaith prayers are "horribly misguided," Fischer declared that "not every being that occupies the unseen world, the spiritual world, is a good guy, is a good spirit," explaining that in addition to the good spirits of God, Jesus, and angels, there are also countless dark, dangerous, and sinister spirits that are under the control of Satan.

Allah is one of the latter, Fischer proclaimed, saying "Allah, as he is referred to and thought of and addressed and spoken of and invoked by Muslims is not a god, he is a demon":

If He Did It: Alex Jones Explains How He Would Have Planned Las Vegas Shooting If He Was A Government Agent

InfoWars host Alex Jones is pretty sure that the Sunday Las Vegas shooting was a false flag operation meant to discredit conservative activists, and today he took a page from O.J. Simpson by spelling out how he would have orchestrated the massacre if he was a government agent.

Flashback: When The Religious Right And Republicans Quashed An Investigation Into Right-Wing Extremism

Reports that the married couple who shot and killed two police officers, a bystander and themselves in Las Vegas this week were motivated by right-wing extremism have highlighted one of the more troubling trends in even the “mainstream” Right — denial that violent right-wing extremism even exists.

As Brian mentioned earlier today, a conservative pundit’s claim on the same day as the shooting that far-right violence is a “complete and total bogeyman” echoes the objections the attacks that many right-wing groups lobbed at a 2009 Department of Homeland Security report on domestic extremism. Right-wing groups and their allies in Congress created a fuss about the report, claiming that it was an attack on conservatives, Christians and veterans.

The American Family Association, Concerned Women for America and the American Center for Law and Justice piled on. Republicans in Congress demanded an investigation into how the report had come to pass. Spotting a good fundraising opportunity, Liberty Counsel even printed out “Proud to be a Right-Wing Extremist” cards to distribute to its members.

Eventually, the pressure led DHS to retract the report and later to cut back the team that produced it. Two years later, speaking publicly for the first time, the analyst who wrote the report — who happened to be a conservative Republican Mormon —  said that the attacks on his unit’s work had undermined law enforcement’s ability to address the “growing and dangerous problem” of violent right-wing extremism.

What happened at DHS as a result of the criticism?
My team was dissolved. All training courses and briefings presentations were stopped. DHS leaders made it increasingly difficult to release another report on this topic.

Why would DHS leaders dissolve your team and stop these analytic activities?

The subject had become too politically charged. As a result, DHS leaders adopted a risk adverse approach toward this issue. Perhaps they thought it was a matter of organizational preservation.

Do you think the dissolution of your unit that you discuss has negatively affected State and local law enforcement?

Certainly. There is one less agency to assist state and local law enforcement with this growing and dangerous problem at a time of heightened activity.

Yet, as recently as last year, Religous Right groups were still using their bogus criticism of the report as a talking point against the Obama administration.

Beck: 'We Are Now The Radicals, We Are Now The Revolutionaries'

On his television program tonight, Glenn Beck will be interviewing the controversial street artist known as "Sabo," who is perhaps best known for his poster of Sen. Ted Cruz covered in tattoos and his poster depicting Texas state Senator Wendy Davis as an "abortion Barbie."

Beck will be interviewing Sabo because, as he explained on his radio program today, "we are now the revolutionaries" and need learn how to "short-circuit" the system through the culture in the manner that Sabo has been doing.

"We are now the radicals," Beck told his audience. "We are now the revolutionaries and we have to start thinking that way. We have to start looking for ways to short-circuit things because what we're doing is we're relying on the system. Well, the system is now geared against us. We are in the Martin Luther King position and Barack Obama is the one in the J. Edgar Hoover role.  You can't out J. Edgar Hoover J. Edgar Hoover.  You can't Nixon Nixon. You have to think differently":

Alex Jones Says Las Vegas Shooter's Facebook Likes Are Obama-Zuckerberg Set-Up

Today on “InfoWars,” Alex Jones continued to argue that the Las Vegas shooting was a false flag operation and suggested that Facebook and President Obama are working together to falsely connect the killings to right-wing extremism.

While reading a list of the Facebook “likes” of alleged shooter Jerad Miller, Jones claimed that he was being set up as part of a plan to “demonize” conservatives like himself.

Cathie Adams Takes To Facebook To Insist 'Homosexuality Is NOT NORMAL Behavior'

Last week, we reported on the efforts of Cathie Adams, the former Texas GOP chairwoman who now leads the state’s Eagle Forum group, to preserve language in the state party platform that declared “the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit.”

While the party ultimately removed the “fabric of society language” — ignoring Adams’s warning that such a move would lead to society’s “demise” — it added language endorsing the discredited practice of “ex-gay” therapy.

Adams told Texas Public Radio that she had pushed for the therapy language at the request of a self-proclaimed “ex-gay” friend , who wrote the resolution.

Meanwhile, as Adams was championing the anti-gay resolutions at the GOP convention, she was also fighting a battle for hearts and minds on Facebook. When someone posted one of our articles on Adams’ wall, she responded, “Homosexuality is NOT NORMAL behavior,” and proceeded to debate with pro-LGBT commenters, telling them, “You are loved. Sinful behavior is not,” “When sin is flouted it cannot be ignored,” and “I love you! I want the BEST for you now and in eternity.”

“You are dissing our Founders and the Constitution they gave us,” she added.

Conservative Activist Mocks Threat Of Far-Right Violence As A 'Bogeyman' Same Day As Las Vegas Extremist Shooting

The same day that shooters reportedly motivated by far-right conspiracy theories killed three people in Las Vegas, conservative pundit Horace Cooper appeared on WorldNetDaily’s Radio America to claim that far-right violence is a “complete and total bogeyman.”

Cooper spoke to host Greg Corombos about Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to relaunch the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee in the wake of incidents such as the anti-Semitic shooting in Kansas City and the attack on a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

He claimed that any focus on far-right violence is really “an attempt to marginalize” opponents of the Obama administration, remarks reminiscent of the right-wing smear campaign to discredit a Department of Homeland Security report [PDF] on domestic extremism.

Cooper is affiliated with several conservative groups including Project 21, the American Civil Rights Union and the National Center for Public Policy Research and was implicated in the Jack Abramoff scandal. He pleaded guilty to falsifying documents while serving as an official in the Bush administration.

Cooper: To shift the resources away from the threat that’s real to this theoretical problem is I think harmful to the safety of Americans and is more about a political agenda than it is in protecting Americans.

Corombos: What do you ultimately think that agenda is?

Cooper: It appears that there’s an attempt to marginalize people who hold views that are sharply different from those of the administration and much of the establishment.



Cooper: We’re particularly bothered by the mixing together so-called domestic insurrectionists and racists. There is simply no anti-black or anti-minority underground movement in America that is threatening in any way the stability of our government, the stability of our local governments, that is just a complete and total bogeyman.
