Parenting Advice From Glenn Beck: Push Your Children Against The Wall To Teach Them That Rights Come From God

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck grew increasingly agitated as he fumed over people who insist that they have fundamental rights but don't realize that such rights come from God.

Warning that if people don't forcefully assert that their rights come from God, then the government can take them away, Beck explained that the Founding Fathers created the Bill of Rights in order to prevent the government from ever infringing on the God-given inalienable rights of the citizens.

Somehow this all culminated in Beck telling his listeners to ask their children where they think their rights come from and "challenge them, get in their face" and "teach them a lesson; push 'em!"

And he meant that literally: "Well, they're going to cry, I'll hurt their feelings. PUSH 'EM!," he screamed, "because if you don't do it now, it's going to be much worse when they're pushed and they're shoved and they're shot. Push them! Teach them! The need to know the truth and they need to be pushed up against the wall once in a while so they know they can defend themselves":

Fischer Praises Putin, Calls Him A 'Lion of Christianity'

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday by reading a series of quotes from a mystery public figure, asking his listeners to guess “what country do you think this guy is the president of?”

The big surprise is that the quotes – encompassing such topics as European rejection of “Christian values that underlie Western civilization,” the pursuit of policies that “put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category” and “excesses of political correctness” – are from Russian president Vladimir Putin, who has escalated his crackdown on LGBT people in recent months.

“Who is it?” Fischer asked. “Which president is the lion of Christianity, the defender of Christian values, the president that’s calling his nation back to embracing its identity as a nation founded on Christian values? Those, ladies and gentlemen, are quotes from Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia.”

“The contrast between that president and our president could not possibly be more striking,” Fischer continued. “Just a bizarre day. To ever think we would get to the day that Russia would be more advanced spiritually than the United States. I mean, it’s just staggering to see what is happening to this country.”

Back in August, when Putin signed a ban on gay “propaganda,” Fischer gushed that “this is public policy that we’ve been advocating and here is a nation in the world that is actually putting it into practice.”

Fischer has not yet commented on reports that Putin’s increasing embrace of a theological hard line has also threatened the religious freedom of evangelical Christians.

Farah: Government May Deny Health Care To Create Society Of 'Dependency And Serfdom'

Taking a page from Bryan Fischer, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah claims that Democrats will use the Affordable Care Act to deny Americans health care so people can never “say no to Washington in the future” because they will be “dependent on government to see a doctor.”

Farah calls for the government to be shut down as long as possible in order to prevent this looming “future dependency and serfdom.”

“In some future conflict within government, how will Americans feel about being deprived of life-saving health care?” Farah asks. “In a future dispute over what deserves funding and what doesn’t, is it hard to imagine another Harry Reid holding Americans hostage by using the government’s monopoly on health care and threatening to shut all medical services down?”

The childish, predictably actions of Obama in scaring Americans and making them feel discomfort during this partial government shutdown only illustrate clearly to anyone with half a brain that this old adage is a truism that applies to the very source of this political showdown.

In some future conflict within government, how will Americans feel about being deprived of life-saving health care?

It’s not a far-fetched scenario.

Harry Reid said he didn’t care about saving the lives of children battling cancer. He wouldn’t vote to fund the program. In a future dispute over what deserves funding and what doesn’t, is it hard to imagine another Harry Reid holding Americans hostage by using the government’s monopoly on health care and threatening to shut all medical services down?

It’s not hard to imagine at all.

It’s as predictable as clockwork if Americans make the mistake of giving Washington this power.

Again, are Americans discerning enough to see what’s happening now and project into the future how government’s stranglehold on health-care options might be used like a sledgehammer to get whatever the Washington power brokers want? Obamacare could, if fully implemented, once and for all change the balance of power in the United States of America between government and the people.

Instead of being a government of the people, for the people and by the people, government would have monopoly power over life-and-death decisions it could hold over the head of its former bosses. Government officials would no longer be servants of the people, they would become their masters.

Do you think Americans are a little bit close to understanding the critical component of what’s at stake in this debate – and how it is evidenced by Obama’s desperate and sometimes shocking abuses of power to see that he gets what he wants?

Today, the government is shut down because of Obamacare. But, as a result of the conflict over Obamacare, we may be getting a glimpse into the future and the consequences of what the next government shutdown will cost all Americans. Imagine the next government shutdown. Imagine the next fight over a debt-limit increase. Will Americans dare to say no to Washington in the future when they are dependent on government to see a doctor?

Better to say no now.

Better to keep it shut down than acquiesce into future dependency and serfdom. This may be our last chance to preserve the U.S. as a unique and lasting experiment in self-government, limited government, the rule of law and the will of the people.

Erik Rush: 'Narcissistic Sociopath' Obama Using Shutdown To 'Usurp Complete Power'

WorldNetDaily’s Erik Rush watched President Obama as he “flapped his meaty, deceitful lips” at a press conference, and saw Adolf Hitler incarnate.

Rush argues that “Obama’s obstinacy” and “interminable effluvia of falsehoods” prove “his modality has become that of a dictator” like Adolf Hitler.

“This, gentle reader, is tyranny, the tyranny of a narcissistic sociopath and lifelong student of Marxism whose end game is to usurp complete power,” he writes. “All of the historical signs of communist ascendancy are present in this administration and in this president.”

At the White House on Tuesday, President Obama delivered a statement and took questions from reporters on the partial government shutdown and the ongoing fight over raising the federal debt ceiling. I think that the only thing worse than having to endure the interminable effluvia of falsehoods was having to hear them over and again as he flapped his meaty, deceitful lips for an entire hour.



“We will not capitulate – no, never! We may be destroyed, but if we are, we shall drag a world with us – a world in flames.”

– Adolf Hitler

It is Obama’s obstinacy that so many are finding troublesome. Cited as being unprecedented, this ought not be a surprise, since having a revolutionary Marxist in the White House is also unprecedented. His modality has become that of a dictator, as evidenced by those who have recognized this and articulated the same. On Monday, Arizona state Rep. Brenda Barton posted on her Facebook page that “Someone is paying the National Park Service thugs overtime for their efforts to carry out the order of De Fuhrer [sp],” likening Obama to Nazi despot Adolf Hitler.

By now, Americans have learned of some of the more tyrannical actions on the part of the Obama administration with regard to his enforcement of the partial government shutdown. As if petty actions such as going out of the way to curtail access to open-air memorials and parks weren’t enough, we have now learned that the Obama administration dispatched federal thugs to evict octogenarians who have lived for decades in homes that happen to be located on federal lands.



While a portion of this strategy has been to put political pressure on Republicans to capitulate, the real intention has been to evidence government might, to show the American people who is in charge.

This, gentle reader, is tyranny, the tyranny of a narcissistic sociopath and lifelong student of Marxism whose end game is to usurp complete power. All of the historical signs of communist ascendancy are present in this administration and in this president. What more evidence do we need?

Staver: DOMA Decision Is 'Contrary To The Natural Created Order Of God Almighty'

Last month, Mat Staver joined Rick Santorum, Rick Scarborough and others for a "Pastors For Virginia" conference and Liberty Counsel has now posted video of the remarks Staver delivered , during which he ranted against the Supreme Court for its recent decision on the Defense of Marriage Act.

Staver claimed that in making the decision, the Supreme Court ruled that anyone who supports traditional marriage is a bigoted and hateful enemy of humanity, and he is outraged: "I say to Justice Kennedy and the other four justices, and I say this strongly as an attorney who is also an officer of the court, how dare they say that those who believe in marriage are bigots and haters of humanity!"

Staver went on to compare the DOMA decision to the Dred Scott decision and Buck v. Bell because it is not reflective of "natural law, biblical law or commons sense; it is contrary to the natural created order of God almighty":

Tea Party Congressmen Complain Obama Is 'Playing Too Rough.' Seriously.

After shutting down the government because they couldn’t get their way on Obamacare, Tea Party members of Congress are now complaining that President Obama is using too many hardball tactics.

That’s right, even though Republicans have shut down the government and are now threatening to push the nation into default, it is Obama who is “playing too rough” according to Tea Party congressmen, Billy House of the National Journal writes:

When tea-party Republicans arrived in Congress in 2011, many were energized and ready to shake up Washington—whatever the cost. But now, some are claiming that it is President Obama who is playing too rough.

“The difference is, I don’t think his predecessors have antagonized the other side,” says Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., who was president of the tea-party-packed House Republican freshman class last session.

“Bill Clinton did not intentionally antagonize Republicans,” Scott said. “And I think that most of those [earlier] presidents would have welcomed the opportunity to negotiate. And if they’re right on their points, then certainly they’d want to negotiate.”

Similar sentiment was echoed by several of Scott’s fellow tea partiers Wednesday.

“I was tea party before there was a tea party,” said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., who has served in Congress since 2003. Obama, he said, “has tried to make some malevolent ghost, or evil spirit, out of the tea party.”

Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., a member of the tea-party caucus who famously yelled “You lie!” to Obama during a speech before a joint session of Congress, was among those who agreed Wednesday with Scott’s view that the president has been too antagonistic.

“Whether it’s personal or not, it’s not good for the country,” said Wilson, who apologized after his outburst on the House floor, made when Obama said the health care reform law would not cover undocumented immigrants.



While some might see irony in a group of firebrand reformers complaining that Obama has not been a peacemaker, Scott, who remains a tea-party favorite, said he does not dispute that all presidents have a right to stand up for what they believe. Yet he also says there’s a sense among his colleagues that Obama just doesn’t like them.

“It’s obvious any time he goes on TV,” Scott said. “I mean, words he uses to describe Congress, the tone of his voice, what he says, how he says it.”

Much like Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), who couldn’t think of a single reason for the shutdown besides Republicans feeling “disrespected,” House Republicans are upset that “Obama just doesn’t like them.”

Let’s take a look at some of the Tea Party congressman who are complaining that the president is just too mean.

Take Trent Franks for example, who is angry that Obama made the Tea Party appear “evil.”

Franks has called President Obama an “enemy of humanity” and called for his impeachment, and even floated a birther lawsuit.

Rep. Scott said that he is just fine with the country hitting the debt limit, which could trigger a global financial meltdown.

And is Joe Wilson, who shouted “You lie!” twice during an Obama State of the Union Address and suggested that possible intervention in Syria was a conspiracy to distract from the IRS scandal, seriously complaining that the president “has been too antagonistic”?

Needless to say, we are full of pity for these poor, bullied Tea Party congressmen.

Cuccinelli Campaign Warns Of Future Where Pastors Are Thrown In Jail, Homeschooling Outlawed

Ken Cuccinelli’s Virginia gubernatorial campaign must really be hurting, because it just brought out some classic Religious Right scare tactics.

Today, the campaign sent out a fundraising email, signed by the candidate’s wife Teiro Cuccinelli, warning supporters that “we live in a nation in which our inalienable rights to live and liberty face real threats.” The threats listed in the email include speculation that “clergy might face imprisonment for teaching the Christian morals from the pulpit” and that homeschooling might be outlawed.

The email claims that Attorney General Eric Holder “recently argued in federal court that parents do not have a fundamental right to home school their children” – an apparent reference to a recent case involving a German family that was denied a request for asylum because Germany would not allow them to homeschool their family. Nothing in the case indicated that the Obama administration wants to restrict homeschooling in the United States.

And, despite right-wing hysteria to the contrary, there is absolutely no evidence for the claim that clergy will be thrown in jail for preaching “Christian morals” on issues like gay rights.

We live in a nation in which our inalienable rights to life and liberty face real threats. Our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, second amendments rights, parental rights, and property rights are all slowly being strangled by our federal government.

My oldest daughter, Alie, left a few weeks ago to begin her second year of college. She told me recently she might want to home school her own children one day. I wonder if Alie will even be allowed to home school her children if she desires to do so.  President Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, recently argued in federal court that parents do not have a fundamental right to home school their own children.

A priest friend of mine recently told me that he is concerned that there might come a day soon when he and his fellow clergy might face imprisonment for teaching the Christian morals from the pulpit.
Several mothers have expressed their concerns to me about how the nationwide implementation of the Obama Administration’s Common Core Curriculum is going to affect Virginia students and standardized testing, including the SAT test.   

These are similar to the many concerns I hear from people I talk to around the Commonwealth.

What will the future look like for our children?

I do not know the answer.
 

Fischer Calls For The Use Of Corporal Punishment In Public Schools

Bryan Fischer spent a large portion of his radio program today hailing the effectiveness of spanking as a biblically-approved form of discipline and cackling as he recounted how he and his wife used a wooden spoon to spank their own children on their bare bottoms because "the bottom is just designed by God for that."

Eventually, Fischer got around to calling for the use of corporal punishment in public schools, saying failure to allow teachers to physically discipline children is why there are so many behavioral problems in school and why children today are getting such a poor education.

"I want to tell you," Fischer said, "we are not going to have a functional education system where kids are actually learning, you're not going to have an environment conducive to learning until we bring corporal discipline back into our elementary schools, into our public schools. That is the only way you're going to be able to maintain the kind of environment in a class room where kids can actually learn something":
