For Glenn Beck, Everything Seems Like A Conspiracy When You Can't Do Basic Research

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck and his cohost Pat Gray alleged that there was some sort of conspiracy afoot to scrub the internet of evidence of White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitting that stronger background checks would not have prevented this week's terrorist shooting in San Bernardino, California.

Asked by ABC News' Jonathan Karl whether there is any evidence that expanded background checks would have prevented the attack, Earnest stated that, "In this instance, of course not."

Beck wanted to play audio of that exchange on his program today but Gray was unable to locate it ... which naturally can only mean that there some White House cover-up at work.

"It's interesting," Gray said, "because there's no, I can't find a single piece of audio on that. It's all printed. And every time this guy says something this butt stupid, that's the case. I don't know if they scrub the internet of the audio, of the video, because every White House press conference is recorded, right? They're all recorded."

"And yet you can't get any audio of that," Beck responded. "That's really [interesting]."

If there was a single person on Beck's team who was capable of doing five minutes of basic research, they could have found this crucial piece of audio in the video of the press briefing posted on the White House's YouTube page:

Note to Beck and friends: your inability to do basic research is not evidence of a massive cover-up.

UPDATE: Later in the radio broadcast, Gray did manage to track down and play this piece of audio. We had not yet listened to that part of the broadcast at the time that this post was written. That doesn't, of course, change the fact that Beck and Gray both initially blamed a cover-up for their own inability to find it. 

Louie Gohmert: Obama Importing Terrorists To Justify Gun Control Laws

Yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, claimed that the Obama administration has “let loose” criminals and brought “massive” numbers of “violent terrorists” into the U.S. so that the president can eventually tell people to “give up your Second Amendment rights because I let all these terrorists in.”

Gohmert unveiled the elaborate plot while guest-hosting “Washington Watch,” the Family Research Council’s radio show.

Following an interview with a pastor who claimed that the Antichrist revealed in the Bible may be the same person as the Mahdi of Shia Islam, Gohmert connected gun violence in the U.S. to issues like immigration and refugee resettlement.

He insisted that the White House is spreading criminals and terrorists around the country in order to justify implementing new gun laws and undermining the Second Amendment, claiming that two-thirds of all Muslims believe that Sharia law should trump the U.S. Constitution:

The places in the country where there’s so much death from guns are places that have very strong gun control, so it’s rather ironic that we have a president and Hillary Clinton, a wannabe president, who's telling us after they have allowed so many people to come into this country as refugees; we know just this year there were at least a dozen people who came in, were brought into this country as refugees, most of them given citizenship and then they have been charged this year, some have been charged, some have been convicted already, of being terrorists. So the president has an open, porous border, people are pouring across and we know that some violent people have come in across our southern border. They come in, every week we read of new violent crimes, murders, rapes, obviously the vast majority don’t do that, but when you have a porous border, you get people who are criminals.

Then we learned again this week that it may be 179,000 or so that we know of who are illegally in the country, have been picked up by the administration but have been let loose on the interior of our country. You know the name Caitlin [sic] who was killed out in San Francisco by an illegal alien, a criminal illegal alien, and fortunately every alien that’s here illegally is not committing felonies but there are those who are.

So the president has presided over hundreds of thousands, millions really, being in the country illegally, at least 179,000 that, as I understand it, they have detained previously but have let loose on the country who have committed crimes, including murder, rape, robbery. And with all of those people that are coming into the country, some of whom are violent criminals, coming into our interior, some of them are actually picked up by Homeland Security and shipped all over our country, no matter whether they’re sick or not, I’ve seen them shipped out while they’re sick, but they’re shipped all over the country, not knowing for sure whether they’re violent criminals or not. So then we have people in the country that should never have been allowed in the country.

Refugees that have been allowed in the country, some of whom are violent terrorists, and they’ve been let in the country, and then when they do some act of violence, we’re told, and I know they haven’t said these words but basically by the position the administration is taking, they’re saying, ‘Yep, we’ve let all of these terrorists, these criminals come into the middle of our country, so all of you law-abiding citizens are going to have to give up your Second Amendment rights because I’ve let all these terrorists in; we can’t let terrorists go in and buy guns so we need to be really restrictive.’ So law-abiding citizens are going to have to give up a big portion of their Second Amendment rights because we’ve allowed all of these terrorists to be in our country without doing anything to remove them. Yes they’ve removed some, but there’s a massive number they haven’t.

As members of Congress, we are supposed to, we take an oath and we are supposed to be defensive against all enemies foreign and domestic. The president is. We owe an oath to the Constitution. Then we see reports that some folks, maybe two-thirds of people who believe in Allah, actually would like to see Sharia law take over the place of our Constitution. You cannot be an American citizen and believe Sharia law should supplant our Constitution.

Focus On The Family Scrubs Safety Information From Pamphlet On Abortion Medication

In the face of an outcry from anti-abortion activists, the conservative group Focus on the Family has scrubbed a pamphlet that it distributed at anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers of information on how to avoid medical complications when obtaining a medical abortion.

The pamphlet, written by a doctor who opposes abortion rights, included a note from the author urging women not to choose abortion because “an incredibly special and completely unique person is growing inside of every pregnant woman.” But what provoked the ire of anti-abortion activists was the fact that it included safety information for women who might choose to take the "abortion pill."

Although the pamphlet has been available since last year, it recently began making the rounds among anti-choice bloggers and activists, who were appalled that Focus would dare to instruct women on how to correctly take abortion medication in order to avoid injury. 

A dismayed J.D. Hall wrote on his Pulpit & Pen blog: “In no uncertain terms, the Focus on the Family literature gives advice on how to use the abortion pill safely.” He added: “Providing advice on how to safely and healthily receive an abortion, should that be the ‘option’ the woman chooses, is deplorable for a Christian publication.”

Jeremy Lundmark of the website Theology Mix was equally outraged: “If abortion is the taking of human life in the womb, and it is, then this booklet encouraged and aided women in murdering their children. In the process, it magnified the perpetrator over the victim. In what universe is it sensible to provide safety tips to help murderers murder?”

The anti-choice group Live Action also took issue with the pamphlet, asking, “Why does this sound more like a ‘how to get an abortion’ guide than pro-life educational material?”

In a statement in response to the criticism, Focus noted that the pamphlet was meant to be used at crisis pregnancy centers by counselors attempting to prevent women from choosing abortion, but assured its critics that it would be revising the pamphlet to make its opposition to abortion more “clear.”

Sure enough, the pamphlet now available on Focus on the Family’s website differs in some important ways from the version that upset the “pro-life” blogosphere, which can still be found through the Internet Archive.

The section of the pamphlet that most outraged “pro-life” activists was this selection of “safety tips” for women taking the abortion pill, which Focus has since removed. (Pulpit & Pen's Hall noted, however, that it was a “clever strategy” that the pamphlet brought up the threat of ectopic pregnancy in order to encourage women to seek ultrasounds.)

The pamphlet has also been revised to exaggerate the threat of medication abortion. The previous version included this list of possible side effects:

The new version paints a much more dire picture:

Also removed from the pamphlet is this explanation that eight women have died after taking the medication incorrectly, while it has been safe for those who have taken it correctly:

Focus also removed this checklist of “things to ask your doctor” (which already included problematic requirements like demanding that a doctor have unnecessary “admitting privileges”):

The old version of the pamphlet also included a relatively straightforward explanation of what an ectopic pregnancy is, complete with a graphic. All of this safety information has been jettisoned in favor of a barebones list of things that make “a medical abortion even less safe”:

Alex McFarland Says God Didn't Prevent California Shooting Because Of Abortion And Gay Marriage

Right-wing Christian apologist Alex McFarland was on Dove TV's "Focus Today" program yesterday to discuss the terrorist shooting in San Bernardino, California, earlier this week, which he blamed on abortion and gay marriage.

"People are saying, 'Why didn't God prevent this?'" McFarland stated, "Look, we've for 45 years told God to leave us alone. Fifty-seven to sixty million babies aborted, now our Supreme Court has deviated from natural law to case law and we've redefined marriage ... God forgive us for the murder of the unborn, God forgive us for kicking prayer out of public schools, God forgive us for making sodomy mainstream and redefining marriage."

"The greatest sin of all is abortion in our nation," he continued, "and the judgment of God only escalate until we turn to the Lord."

Later, McFarland declared that President Obama supposedly refuses to fight radical Islam because he is secretly a Muslim.

"In my heart, I'm going to be honest with you, I suspect he is a Muslim," McFarland said. "I really do."

Janet Porter: 'Hero Of Faith' Kim Davis For TIME Person Of The Year

Anti-gay activist Janet Porter is rallying behind the campaign to make Kim Davis TIME’s Person of the Year , using her radio commentary today to laud the Kentucky clerk as a “hero of the faith.”

Porter, who oncelikened Davis to Holocaust victims and recently produced a bizarre film about the supposed dangers of gay marriage, lauded Davis as “the first person in America to experience the criminalization of Christianity as a result of the Supreme Court Obergefell decision which legalized homosexual so-called ‘marriage.’”

She added that Davis “deserves to be honored for her courageous stand” as she defied the courts and “stood with God.”

Don Feder: We Need 'Islam Control' Not Gun Control

Conservative media consultant Don Feder, who among his projects serves as a spokesman for the World Congress of Families, wrote on his GrasstopsUSA website today that instead of calling for tighter gun laws in response to the recent mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, President Obama should have “called for bi-partisan Islam control.”

This “Islam control,” Feder writes, would include banning Syrian refugees from the U.S., accepting only Christian refugees in the future, requiring the FBI to “stake out every mosque in the country” and demanding that every national security official be personally approved by John Bolton, Dick Cheney and anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney:

Instead of targeting gun owners, try to imagine Obama saying that San Bernardino shows the need for "bi-partisan support for Muslim control." After it stopped foaming at the mouth, the Committee on American Islamic Relations would have called it racist and paranoid, and not at all nice. The suggestion would have been condemned by every Democratic presidential candidate. And the Norwegian Nobel Committee would have taken back Obama's Peace Prize.

How would Islam control work?

• The administration would cancel plans to bring 85,000 Syrian refugees to America, in the calendar year that began on October 1, including many jihadi sleepers.

• Potential refugees would have to pass a religious test (Christians yes, Muslims, no) which Obama recently condemned as "un-American."

• The FBI would stake out every mosque in the country. According to a random survey of 100 U.S. mosques, undertaken by the Mapping Sharia In America Project, three in four either had imams who preached holy war or jihadist literature on the site.

• National Security officials would be screened by a panel composed of former UN Ambassador John Bolton, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Frank Gaffney, head of the Center for Security Policy. Then we wouldn't end up with the politically lobotomized, like Obama's ISIS Czar Robert Malley, who in a 2010 documentary suggested that Hamas was basically the Palestinian equivalent of the Salvation Army.

Feder also gloats that he knew immediately that the perpetrators of the San Bernardino shooting were Muslim because of the U.S. mass shootings with multiple gunmen in the last 15 years, only two have been “committed by non-Muslims.” He doesn’t mention that there have been only three such incidents in that time period.

How did I know San Bernardino was another episode of the Wonderful World of Jihad when only the bare facts were known? Because it had the earmarks. Guess how many mass shootings in the United States in the last 15 years involving more than one gunman were committed by non-Muslims? Exactly two — including Columbine.

Right Wing Round-Up - 12/3/15

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 12/3/15

  • Glenn Beck hopes to raise up an army of prayer warriors with his new "It's Time To Take Action" initiative.
  • Cliff Kincaid says the "Planned Parenthood killer was a deranged pothead."
  • Wise words from Judson Phillips: "Why are the Democrats the Party of Treason? It is simple. They prefer America’s enemies over Americans. "
  • BarbWire's Tami Jackson says Donald Trump "is God’s outside the box answer for a time such as this to take on the forces of hell and win."
  • Linda Harvey calls upon conservatives to "choose the most reliably pro-family candidate" because "the fondest dream of 'LGBT' activists is to force even Christians to bow the knee before them and honor these behaviors in the workplace, schools and public accommodations."
  • Finally, FRC prays that efforts to defund Planned Parenthood will not be derailed by last week's shooting: "May the American people not be fooled by the rhetorical tactics of abortion supporters!  Rather, may Congress be all the more determined and succeed this week in stopping taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion business! May God’s people lead the way!"

Ted Nugent: Time To 'Cleanse This Country' Of Liberals Who Want Everyone 'Bending Over And Taking It In The Ass'

Today on “The Alex Jones Show,” NRA board member Ted Nugent blamed the country’s current political environment on teachers who didn’t show their students the movie “Old Yeller.”

“I don’t care why he’s foaming at the mouth, I don’t care how he got rabies, he’s rabid, get rid of the damn dog,” he said. “When Old Yeller brings us slippers, give him a biscuit; when he foams at the mouth, you shoot him between the eyes. Any questions? You got to do it. America, you got to cleanse this country. No, I’m not talking about shooting anybody. I’m talking about dealing with an outrageous condition that is painful and traumatic and frustrating, but if you don’t face the beast, you’re dead, and that’s what’s going on.”

He continued: “I don’t really care why Barack Obama is the enemy of America. I don’t really care why Nancy Pelosi is a braindead, vicious freak. I don’t care how Sheila Jackson Lee is allowed to stay in power.”

“Or why Harry Reid is a piece of crap,” host Alex Jones interjected.

Nugent went on to claim that liberal Democrats are “subhuman freaks,” while Jones wondered how America “could be ruled by such gibbering weirdos.” “If I didn’t laugh I’d probably throw up blood, it’s so insane,” Nugent said.

Nugent concluded that liberals want everyone “bending over and taking it in the ass,” and can only be thwarted by great leaders like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Jones hoped that the establishment would eventually realize that Obama is “trying to set up a caliphate” and “overthrowing this country”: “Do they really want to put bags on our women’s heads?”

Michael Savage: Laquan McDonald Video Meant To Distract From Obama's Foreign Policy

Conservative radio host Michael Savage knows the real reason why Chicago officials took more than a year to release video of the shooting of Laquan McDonald, who was shot 16 times by a police officer who was later charged with first-degree murder.

According to Savage, President Obama personally ordered the release of the video in order to spark riots that would distract the public from his foreign policy failures. After expressing sympathy with cops who wish they could “smash” the “street thugs” who get in their face, Savage moved on to his latest conspiracy theory.

“Why was it released right now?” Savage asked. “I know why it was released just now. I’ll tell you point blank. Why was it released now? Because Obama’s the biggest flop in the history of foreign policy, the biggest failure in the history of foreign policy and so release the tape and now have some riots in the streets. He studied at the foot of [Saul] Alinsky and did pretty good.”

Savage also warned that Obama plans to bring in over 600,000 Syrian refugees, saying that the “deranged” president is just fulfilling his “promise to America.”

“Did you think he would transform it from a predominant Christian nation into a Muslim nation?” he asked.
