On his television program last night, Beck issued yet another warning that America will soon experience a massive economic collapse, though, of course, he "could be wrong" because he is terrible at timing. On top of that, Beck also warned that 2016 will be "a modern-day 1968," during which America will see "riots in the streets, political chaos, and assassinations."
"Quite honestly, I believe that God doesn't have any choice but to remove His protection from us because we're not worth protecting," Beck warned. "I beg you to have your ducks in a row. The hour is later than we believe it is and morning is here. A lot of people will tell you that I'm selling fear. I'm not; I'm selling love."
Alex Jones invited Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt on to his “Infowars” program yesterday, where the two discussed the persistent right-wing myth that President Obama is telling police departments that conservatives are terrorists or, in Jones’ words, that “gun owners are bad, Christians are bad, the Tea Party’s your enemy, prepare for domestic war, here are armored vehicles for local police.”
Jones told Pratt that he’s seen a “huge wake-up in the military and police in the last few years” to the extent that law enforcement officers and members of the military “really understand that there are people running Washington that really want to hurt this country and really want to hurt them.”
“For every police department that says ‘we want to fight with the Tea Party,’ there’s another 50 police departments that know the Tea Party’s not their enemy when the Democrats are represented by kill-the-police Black Lives Matter groups,” he said.
Pratt agreed with Jones’ assessment, saying that armed government employees would refuse to go along “if anybody in government really went so far as to try to impose some kind of military arms solution in this country.”
“Yeah, there will be a few that will be just following orders,” he said, “but most of the rest of them realize that I didn’t take an oath to uphold Barack Obama or whoever else is president, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution. And that’s the big stumbling block for any wannabe tyrant, is that most of those that they employ with guns aren’t going to want to do something that they knowingly have seen is unconstitutional.
“And I think Waco and other tragedies like that have brought greater clarity to the understanding that a lot of our men under arms have seen, and I believe they would bring that to the table if anybody in government really went so far as to try to impose some kind of military arms solution in this country. Just don’t think it’s going to take.”
After predicting for the entire last year that “The Shemitah” on Sunday, September 13, would usher in some cataclysmic event in America — possibly an economic crash, inclement weather, war or terrorist attacks — messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn appeared on “The 700 Club” today to save face (and sell more books) after September 13 came and went without anything out of the ordinary happening.
When host Pat Robertson asked him if anything noteworthy happened on the 13th, Cahn first tried to avoid the question but eventually told the televangelist that “you can’t put God in a box or He’ll get out of it,” saying that God doesn’t work in exact dates.
Of course, Cahn himself declared that this potential disaster would occur on an “exact date … in accordance with the ancient mystery” of the Shemitah, a day when the land is left fallow and debts are forgiven. “The coming Shemitah will end September 2015. Its final climatic day, Elul 29, the Day of Remission, will fall on Sunday, September 13,” he wrote in “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”
Cahn, however, said that the stock market selloff that occurred on August 18 of this year came close enough to the September 13 date to count as a fulfillment of his prophecy. “It started in the summer,” he said. He also pointed to Sunday’s relatively minor earthquake off the Gulf of California, which is actually located in Mexico and doesn’t even touch the U.S. As if Cahn couldn’t get any more vague, he also said that the Shemitah period marked America’s decline from the world’s leading economic power.
Moving the goalposts even further, Cahn went on to claim that his prophecy would be proven correct as long as something bad happens anytime between now and September 2016:“That’s the period.”
So once something, anything, bad happens within the year, Cahn will take credit for predicting it!
The preacher went on to allege that the construction of a new skyscraper at Ground Zero, the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality and the White House’s rainbow light display celebrating LGBT Pride Month are all bringing God’s wrath upon America.
Cahn then presented the most conclusive proof of all: He once spoke to a man who said he had a dream before the 9/11 attacks of an angel telling him that the Twin Towers would collapse, but he didn’t tell anybody, and now this unnamed prophet who failed to warn everyone about 9/11 is having similar dreams of something bad happening in the future!
Despite many predictions to the contrary, Donald Trump has held on to his frontrunner status in the polls, since the shocking statements that pundits thought would surely doom his candidacy have only made him more popular among Republican voters. As of now, the only serious competition he is getting is not from Jeb Bush or Scott Walker, but from Ben Carson. Surging in the polls, Carson now wins support from 23 percent of likely GOP voters, compared to 27 percent for Trump, in the latest CBS/New York Times poll.
This means that about half of all Republican voters now support either Trump or Carson for president … both of whom have embraced wild conspiracy theories and spout extreme rhetoric that places them far out of the mainstream.
While Trump’s rants about the supposed dangers of vaccines and immigrants are well known, as are his questioning of President Obama’s birth certificate and his frequent claim that a cabal of oppressive but incompetent politicians are running America into the ground, it seems that Carson is getting a pass because he doesn’t share Trump’s bombastic tone.
While Carson may not use Trumpian rhetoric, that doesn’t make what he says any less absurd.
The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins appeared on Glenn Beck's television show last night to promote his new book, "No Fear," and both men warned that God's judgment will rain down upon this nation if Congress fails to defund Planned Parenthood.
"I fear God much more than I fear man," Beck said. "I believe that the Lord has made it so clear on Planned Parenthood, couldn't be more clear on Iran, more clear on 'black lives matter' versus 'all lives matter.' I fear that we are at Jeremiah."
Perkins agreed, saying that God always "presents the evidence before He passes judgment" and that the Planned Parenthood smear videos are God's evidence of America's wickedness.
"This is why it is so important what Congress is doing," Perkins said. "I've had this discussion with congressional leaders, this is our moment, our opportunity. If we say this is just another political deal and we're going to back down, I fear for the country and what may occur."
Mission America’s Linda Harvey is furious that President Obama “continues to exalt the climate-change agenda above actual global crises,” namely the “crises” of gay rights and reproductive freedom.
“Disease, emotional trauma, mutilation, family division, domestic violence and self-harm follow in the wake of ‘LGBTQ etc.’ identities and ‘reproductive rights,’” Harvey wrote in her WorldNetDaily column today. “There’s no way to disguise or adequately manage the wreckage left in the wake of these unnatural, life-rejecting behaviors.”
Warning that “our culture’s current embrace of sexual license is an environmental disaster,” the Religious Right activist declared that “the Gulf oil spill is pond scum in comparison.”
If you still have your children in a public school, you might want to have a talk with them about the true meaning of “sustainability.”
Or you may want to call your kids who are off at college. Will any of those university courses on their “green” campuses assign students a project to evaluate the carbon footprint of a “gay pride” parade? Or an abortion clinic?
As Obama continues to exalt the climate-change agenda above actual global crises, the tragedy is that sexual anarchy will never be objectively measured for its profound contribution to human rights abuses.
You know this word, “sustainable.” The Common Core school framework is full of sacrosanct “sustainable” propaganda, much of it built on the unsustainable quicksand of shifting politics, Marxist economic redistribution schemes and population control.
But one lesson that’s omitted is the high-risk and low-return of homosexuality, gender- switching and sexual promiscuity. Sexual sin, it turns out, is an unsustainable human activity of the first order. The reality is, the sexual anarchy movement is unsustainable.
Real humans are damaged and destroyed. Disease, emotional trauma, mutilation, family division, domestic violence and self-harm follow in the wake of “LGBTQetc.” identities and “reproductive rights.” There’s no way to disguise or adequately manage the wreckage left in the wake of these unnatural, life-rejecting behaviors.
Human sexual excess consumes vast amounts of energy. And what’s the return? Once we account for the clean-up, the management and the waste, our culture’s current embrace of sexual license is an environmental disaster. The Gulf oil spill is pond scum in comparison.
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was forced to leave his first post on the state’s high court back in 2003 after he defied a court order to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from state grounds. This, he said in an interview with Eagle Forum Live on Saturday, was all part of the anti-Christian persecution in America that he claims is forcing believers like him out of public office.
Anne Cori, Phyllis Schlafly’s daughter and the guest-host of the program, asked Moore “how can Christians today live fearlessly” when they are afraid of being “branded a public enemy” for beliefs like opposing marriage equality.
Moore responded that the separation of church and state is now being “used to exclude Christians from holding public office.”
“Well, that’s what they did to you!” Cori interjected.
“Yes, and that’s what they did to others. They’re saying you can profess your beliefs elsewhere, but when you’re under government you cannot,” Moore said.
“Christians are being forced to give up their position in government or else succumb to something that they don’t believe,” he added. “And that’s the whole point, in my opinion, of what’s going on. They want to force anybody who has a belief, in the sanctity of marriage, for example, not to hold public office.”
Earlier in the program, Moore explained that the idea of separation of church and state came from the Bible and therefore actually requires the government to acknowledge the “soveriengty of God” through things like his Ten Commandments display.
“Don’t you think there’s a misunderstanding of this phrase, the separation of church and state?” Cori asked.
“Yes, it’s a complete misunderstanding,” he replied. “In fact, the separation of church and state can be related to the Bible, if you really want to go back. It’s the way God separated the priests out of the tribe of Levi, the family of Aaron from the kings out of the tribe of Judah, the family of David. The priesthood and the civil government were not to interfere with each other. And in today’s society, you see the government actually interfering with the church and with our religious liberty.”
“If you separate God from our government, from our laws, then you lose your religious liberty,” he said. “And that’s so basic an understanding of religious liberty that most Christians and most Americans do not have.”
“Would that mean that the judges today when they throw out the Ten Commandments as their law, then they are really putting themselves above God?” Cori asked.
“Well, they not only threw out the Ten Commandments, you’ve got to understand, it was never about the Ten Commandments per se, it was about the sovereignty of God,” Moore replied. “And, yes, whey they say you can’t acknowledge the sovereignty of God, then they dispute the whole basis of religious freedom and the rights you get from that. So, basically, the battle over the Ten Commandments was a battle over acknowleding the soveriengty of God. And that was never to be permitted to be interfered with by government.”
Correction: This post originally incorrectly referred to Cori as Schlafly's niece.
Last week on her American Family Radio program, Sandy Rios invited Ann Corcoran on to discuss the Obama administration’s decision to expand the number of refugees from Syria’s civil war who will be settled in the United States. Corcoran, who runs the anti-refugee blog Refugee Resettlement Watch, warned against accepting Muslim refugees from Syria, whom she claimed want to move to America in order to establish a “caliphate.”
Lamenting the fact that English-speaking Americans now have to hear Arabic words, Rios asked Corcoran to explain the concept of “Hijra.” Hijra, Corcoran claimed (falsely), is “the Islamic doctrine of immigration. Mohammad told his followers that it was their duty to migrate … The idea is to spread Islam to create a caliphate, literally a worldwide caliphate.” This, she explained, is why Muslim Syrians want to immigrate to the United States, not because they are fleeing an ongoing civil war in their home country that has killed thousands and displaced millions of people.
Later in the program, Rios advocated for barriers to be put in place to stop this “invasion” of an estimated 10,000 of the four million Syrians who have fled the country. Specifically, Rios said, “Christians and children and intact families, maybe, could stay, but all the single, Islamic dudes, go back home, go somewhere else, but not here. And I think that’s a reasonable line to draw.” Single, Muslim men, according to Rios, can be presumed to be only trying to enter the United States to spread the caliphate.
Rios also took time to remind listeners that there are already Islamist threats in the United States government, namely former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin. Clinton, claimed Rios, was instrumental in passing a rule in the UN that “would make it a crime to criticize the prophet around the world” and that Clinton “brought that back home, that you can’t say anything bad about Islam.” In fact, the Obama administration has opposed efforts to criminalize “blasphemous” speech. Rios then restated the tiredconspiracytheory that Huma Abedin is a spy for the Muslim Brotherhood.
On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver asked listeners to pray for his client Kim Davis because she is supposedly receiving vile death threats from the hosts of the television show "The View."
Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who was jailed earlier this month for repeatedly prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, was the subject of a segment on "The View," Staver said, where one of the hosts called her a "monster" and said that she should be killed.
"I would encourage you to pray for Kim Davis, pray for her family, pray for those that work with her, pray for Liberty Counsel," Staver said. "Kim has received just horrible death threats, even from 'The View,' amazingly. They called her a monster on national television, one of them said that someone ought to go kill her. This is on a major network. That was on 'The View' on ABC. I mean, that was astounding, that kind of language was happening on a major TV network."
We have no idea what Staver is talking about. While we can find plenty of articles reporting the "monster" comment, we haven't been able to find a single thing that supports Staver's claim that one of the hosts of "The View" called for Davis to be killed ... and one would think that if a host openly advocated murder on a national television show, that is the sort of thing that would probably have made a bit of news.
UPDATE: Liberty Counsel has informed us that Staver was mistaken and has issued a correction. Here is the explanation of what happened:
Thank you for pointing out Mat Staver's mistake in his description of 'The View' program on Kim Davis. Here is what happened: on Mat Staver’s September 10 appearance on The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly played Mat a montage of people saying hateful things about Kim Davis. Megyn Kelly started with a clip from ‘The View,’ which led into a clip from the HLN ‘Dr. Drew’ show, on which Mike Catherwood said, “Like Mike Huckabee says, ‘Sign me up.’ I’ll do it. I’ll go kill her. I’ll go kill her and—and whatever toothless redneck . . . .” Mat could not see the video because he was on an LTN link, and understandably thought Catherwood’s statement occurred on ‘The View.’
Here’s the Kelly File video (Catherwood’s comment is around 2:42 on the video).
Thank you for pointing out this error. We are correcting our online version of our radio program.
Roy Moore, the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, was a guest on Eagle Forum Live over the weekend, where he discussed the recent developments in marriage equality with Anne Cori, Phyllis Schlafly’s daughter.
Moore seemed to be thrown a little off guard when a listener called in and asked angrily why “people use the 14th Amendment to protect interracial marriage when the authors of the 14th Amendment were against interracial marriage.” (The Supreme Court has found bans on both same-sex and interracial marriages to be violations of the 14th Amendment.)
Cori interrupted the caller and asked Moore to instead address people who say “you have to agree with same-sex marriage because interracial marriage is okay.”
The difference, Moore said, is that the right to the “pursuit of happiness” found in the Declaration of Independence came from God and God supports interracial marriage but not same-sex marriage.
“I think people today would say that same-sex marriage is a pursuit of happiness,” Cori interjected.
“Well, they would say that, but that’s not the way the laws of God define the pursuit of happiness,” Moore responded. “And pursuit of happiness was given by God and recognized by the United States Supreme Court in 1967 in Loving v. Virginia.”
