Glenn Beck Falsely Claims Hillary Clinton Promised To Implement A Single-Payer Health Care System

Just a few days before the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton criticized her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders' plan to implement a single-payer health care system in America, so it would probably have been newsworthy if Clinton had then promised to implement just such a system during her Iowa victory speech.

Of course, that never made the news because Clinton never said it ... but that didn't stop Glenn Beck from "reporting" that she had on his television program last night.

"Last night, she said she would achieve a single-payer health care system," Beck stated. "Just four years ago, they were all saying that was a conspiracy theory, that there's no way any of them wanted a single-payer health care system. But apparently, Obamacare is exactly what we warned it would be: a system designed to crush the health care system and give the government an excuse to swoop in and implement a single-payer health care system. But who's the kook? Who's the crazy one? Who's the conspiracy theorist? Me? You? Or perhaps has the media and the left been lying to you the whole time?"

Beck repeated this claim on his radio program today, which utterly surprised his co-hosts, who could not imagine how they had not heard this piece of news, while Beck insisted that "he was pretty darn sure" it was true because "it was in my morning briefing." 

After admitting that he had not actually heard Clinton say this, Beck had his staff try to find any evidence the Clinton had made statement — after, of course, he'd already reported it on television the night before — but they came up empty, which was very confusing to Beck because he was sure that he had seen it in his briefing "and I don't think I misunderstood that."

This is another pretty telling example of how Beck "verifies" information before he goes out and reports it as fact on air: He simply doesn't bother.

UPDATE: Later in the radio broadcast, Beck reported that Clinton actually promised "universal health care for every single payer," which he insisted was essentially the same thing as single-payer health care. He's still wrong, as what Clinton actually said was that "I know that we can finish the job of universal health-care coverage for every single man, woman and child."

Ted Cruz Blames Media For Ben Carson Flap, Says He's Running 'A High-Road Campaign With Integrity'

Ted Cruz blamed the media this morning for the controversy over whether his campaign falsely hinted to Iowa caucus-goers before voting commenced that his rival Ben Carson was dropping out of the race.

Cruz sort of apologized to Carson yesterday, saying that his political team had simply passed along a CNN report about Carson’s status to supporters in Iowa and that it was a “mistake” that the campaign had not sent a follow-up email clarifying that Carson was actually staying in the race.

In reality, the CNN report in question merely said that Carson was going home to Florida before heading on to New Hampshire and South Carolina for those state’s primaries, not that he was dropping out of the race. The Cruz campaign, meanwhile, told supporters to inform any Carson backers at their caucuses that Carson was “taking time off from the campaign trail after Iowa and making a big announcement next week.” Rep. Steve King, one of Cruz’s most prominent Iowa endorsers, tweeted that Carson was likely dropping out and that his supporters should switch to Cruz.

Cruz pushed back against criticism in an interview today with talk radio host Mike Gallagher, insisting that “from the beginning, we’ve resolved to run a high-road campaign with integrity.”

The Texas senator repeated his story about the CNN report and said of Carson, “I’m sorry if our passing on that CNN news story caused him and his campaign discomfort.”

When Gallagher asked Cruz if he was angry about his campaign officials’ actions, the Texas senator replied, “Well, look, I was disappointed that an impression had been left that was incomplete. It was based on public news reports, and so some of the media folks who want to use it to impugn integrity are deliberately using it in a misleading way.”

Cruz dropped briefly off the line, but when he returned, Gallagher asked him if he would discipline any staffers for their actions.

“Well, I don’t make it a practice to discipline people for passing on public news reports,” he said. “And the news turned out to be accurate, he did indeed return to Florida, and that was news that the voters were interested in.”

Tell 'The Rainbow Mafia To Leave Captain America Alone!'

Steve Pauwels, a pastor in Londonderry, New Hampshire, and an editor at Clashdaily.com, is not very happy about the inclusion of gay and transgender characters in superhero comic books and is calling on his fellow anti-gay activists to rise up and tell the "Rainbow Mafia to leave Captain America alone!"

In a column posted on BarbWire.com today, Pauwels fumes that the "rainbow mafia" has utterly contaminated "healthy male friendship" so that now "any non-libidinous connection between dudes has become fair game for pro-deviancy revisionism."

"Sodomite supremacists," he writes, are driven by a "psychic rage" to completely destroy the culture, so much so that they have now even taken over our precious comic books:

When I was a teenager, Captain America was probably my favorite comic book hero. Every month I’d eagerly look forward to the newest issue of Captain America and the Falcon. The Falcon, you ask? He was the red-white-and-blue Avenger’s African-American partner — “partner” as in crime-fighting teammate, not as in the fellow who, after a full day of busting bad guys with Cap, did things with him in the dark that would make most comic aficionados go, “Ewwwww.”

Yes, back in the mid/late 1970’s, “partner” still just meant … well, “partner”; nothing more salacious. But, of course, that semantic status quo couldn’t be allowed to endure — and the meaning of a once innocent word has significantly warped into something icky. As, alas, has occurred with such previously serviceable terms as “gay”, “queer” and “marriage” – the “homosexual rights” movement churns on like a lavender Pac Man, omnivorously gobbling up everything in it’s path.

...

Why else would it be necessary to contemplate the sexual proclivities of a comic book hotshot? That the fellow firing laser beams from his eyes prefers canoodling with Carl rather than Carla? The guy who can lift a building over his head favors anal intercourse to the real thing? The woman defying gravity’s limitations also flies home at night to be with her “wife”?

Recall Andrew Wheeler’s admission: the goal is not just “some” homosexual heroes, but “enough” of them. “Success” arrives with Captain America and his boyfriend. Except that, for the Lavender Lobby, it’s never “enough”. First, it was “Leave us alone!” Then, prominence in film, television, music, literature. Next? “Gay marriage”. And lately, the comic-book cosmos.

It does supply an idea for a truly daunting supervillain: an unrelenting baddie who wields his powers to transform all of society into his version of a sodomy-worshiping, marriage-distorting, family-depredating Eden. I’d love to see Cap and the Falcon take a crack at challenging, then vanquishing him. Those of us who prize God’s original plan for sexuality and marriage certainly have no other choice.

Share if you want the Rainbow Mafia to leave Captain America alone!

Sandy Rios: Liberals Just Using Flint Water Crisis And The Zika Virus To Scare People

Last week, American Family Association official Sandy Rios spoke on her radio program with a caller who was angry that Rios and other conservatives aren’t talking about the Flint water crisis, where policies imposed by the state’s Republican administration directly led to the poisoning of the city’s water supply.

Rios responded by blaming the city’s (powerless) Democratic city officials for the lead poisoning catastrophe and alleged that the disaster in Flint is less important than the threat from ISIS and “our out-of-control borders.”

She then managed to link outrage over the Flint crisis to coverage of the Zika virus outbreak in South and Central America: “The whole issue in Michigan — the left loves to, they’re now creating this, I’m sorry, I’m going to really go out on a limb here, this Zika virus which I haven’t talked about. They love to come up with tragedies and they love to blame and they love to scare people. I think this issue in Michigan is a serious one but I don’t think it’s the big issue that these other issues are.”

When the listener told Rios that she was “devaluing black life” by dismissing the importance of the turmoil in Flint, she insisted that that was impossible because she had no idea whether Flint residents are predominantly black or white.

While Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, isn’t very concerned with the poisoning of thousands in Flint and seems to think that the Zika virus is a liberal scare tactic, she hasn’t been above stirring up actually baseless fears, alleging that Central American migrants would spread measles, Enterovirus D68 and other diseases around the U.S.

Donald Trump's A 'Big Fan' Of The 'Amazing' Ann Coulter

It’s no secret that Donald Trump likes the work of anti-immigrant extremist Ann Coulter, but he had a chance to tell her so publicly in a radio interview shortly before Coulter took the stage at a Trump campaign rally in New Hampshire last night.

Boston talk radio host Howie Carr, who was broadcasting from the Trump event in Milford, New Hampshire, put Coulter on the line with Trump as she prepared to speak and Trump prepared to head over to the event. Coutler told Trump that he is “doing a fantastic job” and that he would “love” her speech.

“Ann’s been amazing,” Trump responded, adding, “I’m a big fan and you know that.”

Trump also took the opportunity to go after his “low-energy” opponent Jeb Bush, joking that “he probably paid $5 million” for a recent crowd at a campaign event.

“I don’t know, Jeb is out there, he’s spent $100 million, it’s sad actually what’s going on with Jeb, he’s got no votes, he’s down around two [percent] and I think it’s a pretty sad situation,” he said.

Trump added that “most” of his Republican rivals will probably soon drop out of the race.

Larry Klayman: Obama Might Stay In Power Indefinitely

As we reported earlier today, Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman joined radio host Alex Jones yesterday to discuss why he believes President Obama is a secret Muslim.

Klayman didn’t mention his attempted revolution to remove the president from office, but he did find time to discuss his lawsuit against Obama’s recent executive actions on guns, warning that such actions by the White House show that the president may try to stay in power after his second term expires.

“I believe he would like to stay in power,” Klayman said. “You know, at the end of the Clinton years, everybody thought he was going to declare a state of national emergency under FEMA and take control. With Obama, I don’t think it’s likely but it could happen. He does believe that he is above the law, that he’s king. I hope that does not happen, but the country is in such a bad shape right now that he could try almost anything.”

After Jones claimed that President Clinton did indeed attempt to seize power, Klayman told Jones that the two of them are “charter members” of Obama’s “subversive list”

Anti-Abortion Activists Raise Money To Defend Daleiden, See Planned Parenthood 'Crumble'

A number of anti-abortion groups joined together last night for a webcast aimed at raising money for a legal defense fund for David Daleiden, the anti-Planned Parenthood activist who is facing an indictment in Texas, along with his fellow activist Sandra Merritt.

Life Legal Defense Foundation, the group that is representing Daleiden in a separate case in California, is managing a legal defense fund for Daleiden and Merritt. Thomas More Society’s Peter Breen, who is representing Daleiden in Texas, and Charles LaMandri of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, who is representing Daleiden on other charges, also joined the call, which was hosted by the anti-abortion protest group 40 Days for Life.

David Bereit of 40 Days for Life urged the reported 2,400 activists on the call to “pray” for Daleiden, “promote” his cause and “pitch in” for his legal defense, which the attorneys said had already cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Breen reported that he would try on Thursday get a Houston judge to “quash the indictment” against Daleiden. Daleiden’s allies at the radical anti-abortion protest group Operation Rescue will also be holding a press conference on Thursday urging prosecutors to drop the grand jury’s charges. Liberty Counsel, which is representing Merritt, will hold a similar press conference on Wednesday.

Breen, repeating the dubious claim that Daleiden is an “investigative journalist,” said a bad outcome for the activist in Houston would harm freedom of the press and at the same time give prosecutors in other parts of the country the confidence to “come after” anti-abortion activists.

“The stakes are as high as they could possibly be,” he said. “If the other side is allowed to proceed in bringing criminal prosecutions against legitimate journalism, I mean we certainly don’t want to live in a country where journalists can be tossed in jail for decades for just doing their jobs. And certainly what would this do to the pro-life movement and other prosecutors who say, ‘I want to come after the pro-life movement, I’m just not sure I can get away with it.’ If they get away with it here, they’ll be able to get away with it in other jurisdictions.”

Daleiden himself also joined the call, expressing hope that the next president will investigate Planned Parenthood, cut off its federal funding and leave the women’s health provider watching “their abortion empire … crumbling all around them.”

“I think they’re going to be pulling out all of the stops in the coming year,” he said, “every last bit of political capital they have to cash in, they’re going to do it, because they know the only thing that stands between them and getting completely cut off from the taxpayer trough at the federal level is a pro-life president, the only thing that stands between them and a federal investigation and criminal convictions for trafficking baby parts and money laundering and the money off of aborted baby parts is a pro-life Department of Justice. Planned Parenthood knows that this issue is the last thing that stands between their abortion empire and it crumbling all around them, and so that’s why they’re lashing out in the way that they are.”

Alex Jones: Liberal Women Seek Out Muslim Men To 'Slap Them Around'

Yesterday, Alex Jones of InfoWars chatted with Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman about Klayman’s column naming President Obama 2015’s “Muslim of the Year.”

Jones, discussing cases of sexual assault in parts of Europe by migrants from North Africa and the Middle East, claimed that some liberal women in the West actually want to be assaulted by Muslim men.

“What is happening with the left?” he asked. “Not just here, but in Europe. I even found out that it’s a new fad where liberal women want to go out and find a very Sharia-law Muslim man to slap them around and dominate them but they hate their daddy from the liberal West who gave them all that freedom. Is this like some type of mass suicide culturally by the left? Who are these people?”

Klayman, for his part, said that Islam “is not a religion at all” and that Muslims constantly try to “kill each other.”

Later in the interview, Klayman praised Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S.

Alex Jones: 'They Might Kill' Donald Trump Just Like MLK And The Kennedys

On Monday, as Alex Jones’ InfoWars network broadcast special coverage of the Iowa caucuses, Jones himself called in to share important information about his favorite candidate and past guest, Donald Trump.

With his face pressed up against the camera, Jones criticized Salon for running an article based on a report in Politico that called the New York mogul’s presidential campaign a “calculated con job.” Jones said Salon and others are trying to discredit Trump because they know he wants to save America, adding that he was told by “insiders” that “Trump is freaked out, he can’t believe they’re putting cancer viruses in the vaccines.” 

His sources also informed him that “Trump is a listener” to his radio show, which may explain Trump’s anti-vaxxer attitude

Jones, who then took time to recount how the Democratic Party had supposedly sent people to “physically attack” him for criticizing Bill Clinton, assured his viewers that “Trump’s awake” and “knows what’s going on,” and that’s why global elites want to stop him, just as they stopped Martin Luther King Jr. and Jack and Bobby Kennedy for trying to “empower humanity.”

“He actually wants to be the guy that can save America,” Jones continued. “That’s why the Bilderberg group is so scared of him. That’s why the whole elite is piling on against him. That’s why they’re doing everything they can to stop him. You think Trump’s stupid, folks? If he gets elected and doesn’t try to deliver, he will be the lowest-valued thing on earth, he will be the trash to be taken home. He’s not going to do that. And that’s why I think we’re going to see an epic battle now. They’re going to do anything they can to stop Donald Trump, folks, just like they stopped Martin Luther King or Bobby Kennedy and JFK.”

Speaking with conservative activist Larry Klayman yesterday about Donald Trump’s candidacy, Jones warned: “I think they might kill him.”

Theodore Shoebat Says Jesus Would Personally Beat Gays To Death

In his most recent video, extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat declared that Jesus Christ would peronally beat gay people to death.

After ranting that the U.S. military is being overrun by "faggots" who routinely rape straight male soldiers, Shoebat faulted America for not being more like Eastern European nations where gay people are physically beaten in the streets while their attackers escape punishment.

"When you have the sodomites coming out into the streets and the Christians come and beat them up," Shoebat said, "the people who are beating up the sodomites don't really get punished because the society is so conditioned that way ... If there's a law written in the hearts of the people, then the people who fighting this evil, physically, with their hands, fighting them, beating them up, those people are not going to get in trouble."

"We don't have that in America," he lamented.

"Jesus Christ took up a whip and beat people up in his Father's temple," Shoebat declared. "Now imagine if sodomites were in his Father's temple. Jesus would have killed them all. He wouldn't just have hit them; Jesus got violent!"

Allow us to remind everyone that Shoebat was featured alongside several congressmen and GOP presidential candidates in an anti-gay "documentary" produced by Janet Porter, who now just so happens to be running for a seat in the Ohio legislature.
