Citing the Book of Mormon, Glenn Beck Warns That 'We Are at the End'

Near the end of today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck grew solemn as he warned his audience that "we are living in Biblical times."

Saying that the Book of Mormon is "really a calendar," Beck said that recent episodes of cannibalism in Syria and Russia are just the sort of thing that the Book of Mormon predicts will take place as we near the Last Days ... adding that he told his staff a long time ago that if they ever heard him mention the Book of Mormon on the air, they would know "we are at the end":

Gohmert: CAIR & ISNA are 'Front Organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood,' 'Want Sharia Law'

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is still reeling from Attorney General Eric Holder’s attempt to cast aspersions on his asparagus, and took to the House Floor today to accuse the Justice Department and intelligence agencies of working with Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

Gohmert, who earlier claimed that Americans may need to use their guns to prevent the establishment of Sharia law, claimed that the Council on American Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America are both “front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood” and “want Sharia law to be the law of the land, not our Constitution.”

While Gohmert argued that the Fifth Circuit Court “confirmed” CAIR and ISNA’s Muslim Brotherhood allegiance, the court actually removed their designation as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial and cleared them of such a status.

The congressman even alleged the military is ignoring and refusing to “recognize” the problem of green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan. “We need to address the political correctness that is blinding our agencies and blinding our military of its ability to see who the enemy is because it’s getting people killed,” Gohmert said.

King: During Last Election, Democrats 'Knew What Internet Sites We Were Looking At'

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck was interviewing Rep. Steve King and mentioned that, on Monday, Sen. Mike Lee will appear on the program to discuss the theory that Chief Justice John Roberts was "pressured" into ruling in favor of health care reform, possibly through the use of information gathered by the NSA's PRISM surveillance program.

When Beck asked King if he believed that lawmakers were having their personal lives monitored through PRISM and were being blackmailed by it, King responded that there was no doubt that such capabilities existed. In fact, King said, he recently had a private conversation with a Democratic strategist who told him that, during the last election, they knew which websites opposing candidates where visiting.

That caught Beck's attention and he asked King to repeat it, which he did, saying "they knew what internet sites we were looking at" and that the revelation "was a pretty chilling thing to go into my ear."  King said he doesn't know how they obtained such information but he assumes it was through something similar to PRISM:

Given how Beck operates, where any unverified piece of hearsay is immediately believed and trusted so long as it supports his worldview, we won't be at all surprised when he starts to repeatedly assert, as if it was a well-established fact, that Democrats used PRISM to spy on Republican candidates.

Immigration Reform a Tough Sell to Ralph Reed's 'Teavangelicals'

A group of conservative evangelical leaders has been pushing their fellow conservatives to embrace immigration reform, in part as a way to make the Religious Right and the Republican Party more appealing to the nation’s growing Latino population. Ralph Reed has been among those supporting the idea of a comprehensive reform bill, but at his Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington DC, many of the “Teavangelical” activists – people who are part of both the Tea Party and Religious Right movement – aren’t buying.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, who has been telling white evangelicals that they should embrace an influx of Jesus-loving Latinos as the salvation of Christianity in America, spoke in Friday morning’s session. He urged attendees not to drink the anti-immigrant “Kool-aid.” He told them not to believe the charge that 11 million immigrants would become Democratic voters if given citizenship. The conservative movement does not exist to conserve pigmentation or a white majority, he said, and it needs some “salsa sauce” on top.

Unfortunately for Rodriguez and his fellow proponents of immigration reform, two previous speakers, Gary Bauer and Allen West, had already spoken in disparaging terms about the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill moving through the Senate.  Bauer said Republicans in Washington spend too much time listening to consultants rather than standing firm on their principles. “You don’t have to go off and pass amnesty,” he said.  Former Congressman Allen West said that the “illegal immigration and amnesty bill” would make life harder for African Americans. And immediately following Rodriguez to the microphone was Phyllis Schlafly, who ramped up the rhetoric, telling attendees that they should threaten to run primary challengers against Senate Republicans who voted for the immigration bill.

Driving home that message was Colleen Holcomb, executive director of Schlafly’s Eagle Forum.  Holcomb was part of a panel on immigration reform that was moderated by Carlos Campo, president of Pat Robertson’s Regent University. Campo, who backs immigration reform, introduced Holcomb as a Regent alum, but that didn’t deter her from making slashing attacks on the Senate immigration bill. In fact, she at least indirectly criticized Campo and Ralph Reed himself when she said she was “profoundly offended” when faith leaders suggested that there was a biblical mandate for this kind of bill. She urged people to take advantage of resources available at www.stopgangof8.com. Holcomb later agreed with a questioner that it was an “outrageous lie” to suggest that the Senate bill reflects conservative principles.

Panelist Carlos Curbelo of the Miami-Dade County School Board tried to convince audience members that the current bill is not “amnesty” the way the 1986 immigration bill had been. Another panelist, state rep Steve Montenegro of Arizona, said the bill needed to include stronger border security provisions. When he asked for a show of hands – not a single person said they trusted that the Senate bill would secure the border.  And when he followed up, asking in effect, but how many of you would be willing to work with provisions of the bill if it did secure the border, very few hands went up.

It seems clear that Reed’s audience is more in sync with Schlafly than Rodriguez. That may be why Reed, who says reform should reflect Judeo-Christian principles – which he says include strengthening the family, respecting the rule of law, meeting the needs of the U.S. economy, and including “enforcement triggers” on border security – is also careful to include vehement denunciations of “amnesty” and “guaranteed paths to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently residing in the country.”

Rand Paul Links 'Liberal Elites Here at Home' with Islamists Who Put Christians to Death

In his speech yesterday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority conference, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) claimed that the Senate’s 81-10 vote against his bill to end aid to Pakistan, Egypt and Libya was part of a taxpayer-funded “war on Christianity.” In the speech, Paul even compared “liberal elites here at home” to governments that have harsh laws, including the death penalty, against Christians.

Paul also said that he would allow “not one penny” in foreign aid to countries that allow the burning of the American flag, which we should note is also legal in the U.S.

Watch:

It saddens me to see these countries that are supposedly our allies that they continue to persecute Christians. It angers me to see my tax dollars supporting regimes that put Christians to death for blasphemy against Islam, countries that put to death Muslims who convert to Christianity and countries who imprison anyone who marries outside their religion, I say no more money to countries that are doing that to Christians. There is a war on Christianity, not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide. And your government, or more correctly, you are having to pay for it. You are being taxed to send money to countries that are not only intolerant of Christians but openly hostile.



In Egypt, in Pakistan, they burn our flag—I say not one penny more to countries that are burning the American flag.

Pratt: Tucson Shooter 'Didn't Find Any Resistance' Because Victims Were Democrats

One of Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt’s favorite talking points is that “of the mass murders in the last 20 years, all but one have taken place in a gun free zone.” (That statistic is just plain wrong, but that’s another story).

Speaking with a conservative radio host in Idaho this week, Pratt delved into the one shooting that he counts as an “exception” to this nonexistent trend: the 2011 shooting at Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ “Congress on your Corner” event at a mall in Tucson, which left six dead and Giffords critically injured.

Giffords and the constituents who came to talk with her – including a nine-year-old-girl and a Republican-appointed federal judge -- had it coming, Pratt implies, because “it was a Democrat town hall meeting of a Democrat representative” and Democrats “don’t necessarily, most of them, believe in carrying guns.”

“And so when this dirtbag attacked a town hall meeting,” Pratt continues, “he didn’t find any resistance and he was able to kill a number of people there.”

There was, in fact, a man with a concealed carry permit at the scene in Tucson…and in the confusion of the scene he very nearly shot the wrong man. Meanwhile, the shooter, Jared Loughner was brought down by an unarmed 74-year-old man who tackled him with the help of other bystanders.

Only one out of the mass murders in the last 20 years have been carried out in gun-free zones. And the one, by the way, that was an exception – I’m sorry Democrats that are listening – but it was a Democrat town hall meeting of a Democrat representative in Tucson, Arizona. And, you know, that’s kind of what Democrats are like, they don’t necessarily, most of them, believe in carrying guns. And so when this dirtbag attacked a town hall meeting, he didn’t find any resistance and he was able to kill a number of people there.

WND: Don't Enlist In Military, Too Much Gay 'Dancing and Romancing'

WorldNetDaily columnist Patrick Brady is marking the birthday of the U.S. Army by saying that he will no longer “encourage any young person to enlist in today’s military” and he “would not give one drop of blood for the country and military we are becoming.”

Why?

Because President Obama is letting men dance with each other in his “quad-sexual military.”

“[Obama] introduced homosexual conduct into barracks, military communities and foxholes,” Brady writes. “Soldiers will see their chain of command dancing and romancing other men – or women, or both. I wonder if Mr. Obama believes that the sight of him dancing with other men at state functions would be inconsequential.”

Thanks to Obama’s “insanity,” Brady adds, now “Army posts, camps and stations [are] peopled by same-sex couples in gay, lesbian and bisexual clubs where fraternization and adultery are indefinable.”

He also warns that the military is becoming a “sexual and moral morass with readiness in shambles” like the Boy Scouts of America, which has “introduce[d] fornication, by definition, into their ranks.”

Our Army has been housed in communities of like-minded patriots separate and independent from the communities of America. The functions of those communities – schools, commissaries PXs, churches, theaters and clubs – all reflect our unique military discipline and values.

Enter Mr. Obama, a progressive moralist, who introduced homosexual conduct into barracks, military communities and foxholes, and transformed our military from heterosexual to quad-sexual (homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender). As if that weren’t enough, he is now putting females in foxholes much to the delight of our future battlefield enemies. With these changes will come a change in standards: physical for women and moral for Christians.

We are already seeing attacks on Christians and conservatives in the military. How can a military chaplain, Christian or Muslim, not teach the truths of the Bible on sodomy? Mr. Obama and his military sycophants must silence them. And it has begun. The Boy Scouts have been a kind of mini-military, and they face the same moral dilemma. How can they be morally straight when their leadership (essentially to protect their salaries) introduces fornication, by definition, into their ranks?

Unless America wakes up and stops this insanity, we will be celebrating the Army’s 239th birthday on Army posts, camps and stations peopled by same-sex couples in gay, lesbian and bisexual clubs where fraternization and adultery are indefinable – as is discipline. Homosexual health, deployment and blood issues will enter battle planning. Soldiers will see their chain of command dancing and romancing other men – or women, or both. I wonder if Mr. Obama believes that the sight of him dancing with other men at state functions would be inconsequential. The military will become a sexual and moral morass with readiness in shambles.



Over the years, I have done my share of recruiting. My military service to America was the greatest thing that ever happened to me. All my children served. I would not serve in a quad-sexual military, nor would I encourage any young person to enlist in today’s military. I would give my life for the country and military I served. I would not give one drop of blood for the country and military we are becoming. Hopefully, on this birthday of our Army and our flag, Americans will pray that the disasters of this presidency will be reversed.

Porter: Obama Threatens Our 'Ability to Exist,' Committed 'Ultimate Hate Crime'

Janet Porter stopped by TruNews with Rick Wiles on Wednesday to publicize her new film project, The Criminalization of Christianity, and discuss the alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups. After making the laughable claim that conservative groups “weren’t allowed to exist” during the 2012 election cycle, she made the even more absurd argument that Obamacare will jeopardize our “ability to exist as a live human being” and that conservatives will be denied “lifesaving treatment.”

This is what it’s come down to, political profiling and targeting. I believe the elections were effected, if you basically target every Tea Party group and every conservative group that might just inform their members of what’s going on and what’s at stake, they weren’t allowed to exist. When you keep in mind that these same people at the IRS are going to be deciding whether we ourselves can exist because we’re now giving them the keys to control our healthcare, whether or not we receive life-saving treatment, and if they target people based on their political views for their ability to exist as an organization, why would they not use the same tactics to target individuals on whether or not they have the ability to exist as a live human being who is denied the lifesaving treatment that they now are in control of? These are frightening times. I was talking to Tom DeLay and I said to him this: they may have the power, they may have the technology and they may have a lot of things but we have a couple of things we have going for us, we have the truth and we have God.

For the conservatives who do survive the Obamacare death panels, Porter predicts a grim future where people are thrown in jail for speaking against gay marriage or refusing to perform gay nuptials. She also alleged that Obama’s gaffe about visiting fifty-seven states was really a sign that he is a Muslim because there are fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

She added that Obama and Hillary Clinton used (or orchestrated) the Benghazi attack to criminalize anti-Muslim speech. Repeating Bill Federer’s debunked claims about the Benghazi attack, Porter said the Obama administration committed the “ultimate hate crime” and “hate crime of hate crimes” over the death of Amb. Christopher Stevens, whom she thinks was gay.

I’m working on a film right now called the Criminalization of Christianity, after the book it’s basically the updated message from leaders of what’s at stake in the battle for marriage. If we don’t win it, it is going to be the criminalization of Christianity: it will be pastors who are carried off into jail for not performing homosexual marriages; it’s going to be those of us who dare to say there’s hope for change and let me tell you about a God of the impossible that can change your heart and change your life, that’s going to be illegal.



I just interviewed Bill Federer, he said to me that [Hillary Clinton] promised the fifty-seven Islamic states—remember when Barack Obama said that he traveled to all fifty-seven states, it’s just ironically, coincidentally, fifty-seven Islamic states and that’s what he was referring to, he didn’t mess up with how many American states, his allegiance was elsewhere in my opinion—so what happened was the promise was made by Hillary I’m told that don’t worry we’re going to make sure we silence all disagreement of Islam.

So when Benghazi came down and the ambassador there—who I’m told was a homosexual, talk about the hate crime of hate crimes, if this is true, the government ignoring his pleas for help, that’s probably the ultimate hate crime by letting this man die and telling others to stand down—they took advantage or created it on purpose, they took this crisis and they said, here we got something, we’re going to pick somebody who’s got an amateur video and he’s got some other issues and we’re going to pick on him and we’re going to silence his voice because if they let us silence his voice, then tomorrow we’re going to silence your pastor’s voice and your voice.
