Almost from the very beginning of the debate over net neutrality, Glenn Beck has vehemently opposed it, mostly because he has no idea what he is talking about, even warning that America "deserves to be destroyed" if the FCC implements regulations designed to ensure open access.
Today, the FCC approved those regulations and Beck is predictably livid, fuming on his radio program today that the people who supported net neutrality are nothing but "morons" and "useful idiots."
"You morons! You useful idiots! That's all you are. You're a useful idiot. Read Joe Stalin. You moron!" Beck bellowed. "You know why it's happening? It's happening because our elite institutions, our education, our higher learning ... bullcrap, not even our higher learning, our entire educational system has failed us and they are churning out morons!"
At the town hall meeting where Rep. Barry Loudermilk shared his views on vaccines and IEDs along the southern border last week, he also fielded a question from a constituent who claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood has “penetrated our government” and is “in the Department of Homeland Security.”
The Georgia Republican responded that the while the House would like to investigate such Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the government, it has been stonewalled by the Obama administration.
Loudermilk said that part of the problem was people like Attorney General Eric Holder, who the House voted in 2012 to hold in contempt. He told his constituents that members of the House had considered arresting Attorney General Eric Holder at last month’s State of the Union address, but were counseled by attorneys that “some other things were going on” in the case of Holder.
“There was a discussion before the State of the Union of, because of holding Eric Holder in contempt, what role will the House play if he shows up on the House Floor for the State of the Union because he’s been held in legal contempt of U.S. Congress,” Loudermilk said. “And there was a discussion, ‘Will the Sergeant-at-Arms arrest him?’ But they checked with some of the attorneys and they said some other things were going on.”
Loudermilk went on to insist that he was particularly worried about the “White House access” of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which he suggested was a Muslim Brotherhood group (and mistakenly called the Center for Islamic American Studies).
Last week, Gordon Klingenschmitt declared that the owners of a Colorado bakery who refused to provide a wedding cake to a gay couple were really "blessing" the gay couple by letting them know that homosexuality is a sin. On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, the Colorado Republican state representative heaped similar praise upon a Washington florist who likewise refused to provide flowers to a gay wedding for supposedly also "blessing" the gay couple against whom she discriminated by trying to save them from Hell.
Calling the florist a prophetic "hero," Klingenschmitt said that while she is being persecuted for standing for the truth here on earth, she will receive a reward for her courage in Heaven for her effort to save this gay couple from damnation.
"There will be a day when, after they've lived their life of pleasure and sin and after they have manifested all kinds of demonic spirits ... that they will be held accountable before God," Klingenschmitt warned. "And some day when they're standing before God, God will ask them, 'Didn't you know this was wrong?' And they'll have to admit that, yes, this gentle Christian woman told us it was wrong":
SPLC had posted a profile of Carson in its “extremist files,” but quickly took it down, noting that it did not meet the group’s standards, but standing by its reporting on Carson’s long history of promoting anti-government conspiracy theories and smears about LGBT people.
But Jackson told the National Press Club audience that SPLC had criticized Carson simply for opposing marriage equality, which Jackson said “is a violation of his and potentially all of our religious liberty.”
He went on to declare that SPLC’s criticism of Carson was “no different than what maybe slave masters or segregationists would have said.”
“When an organization like the Southern Poverty Law Center decides that a black man that doesn’t agree with them can be slandered the way they’ve slandered him, what it tells me is that there’s a certain level of racism that they are operating under while they are trying to point the finger at others,” he said. “And I say that for this reason: To me, this is no different than what maybe slave masters or segregationists would have said. You know, ‘Some black people are okay as long as they do what we expect them to do and they think the way we expect them to think.’ In other words, they’re the ‘good ones.’ So apparently, if you’re not one of the ‘good ones,’ then we’re going to try to destroy you. And to me, that is racism at its worst.”
“The internet is a model of the world,” Robertson said. “It is free. Think of how many businesses have been spawned on the internet, think how much web traffic there is, think how much i-business goes on, think of all the conveniences that we have now as consumers and think of the constant improvement, the speeds and the things that are being done to improve the service that we have on the internet. Now, they want to treat it like it’s a water company or an electric utility with 1934 regulation.”
“The Obama people, you don’t understand, ladies and gentlemen, the socialist agenda is to take control of everything. They got their hands on health care and they’re about to ruin it, and now they want to ruin the internet. And I don’t know what we can do to stop it,” he said.
“I don’t want to live under a dictatorship,” he continued. “This is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Let’s fight for it. If you don’t stand up and say something, they’re going to run over you like a steamroller. That’s what’s going on. Our liberties are being eroded every single day that those guys are up there in Washington doing what they do.”
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter writes today that while politicians are debating ways to defeat ISIS terrorists, they really should be focusing on the “illegal aliens [who] have killed, raped and maimed thousands of Americans — in America.”
While Coulter mentions tragic cases of violent crimes committed by immigrants, the Immigration Policy Center notes that immigrants are “less likely to commit crimes or be behind bars than the native-born, and high rates of immigration are not associated with higher rates of crime.”
Nonetheless, Coulter claims that “we’re getting our clock cleaned at home” by immigrants who are “murdering far more Americans than ISIS ever will.”
“Can’t a Republican Congress do anything to stop the surge of foreign criminals, viruses and parasites crossing our border?” Coulter asks.
By now, the public knows more about ISIS than they know about the Kardashians. But it has no idea that the very same Senate Democrats who claimed to oppose Obama’s amnesty when they were campaigning are currently filibustering a bill to defund it, and Sen. Mitch McConnell is ready to cave.
ISIS has killed four Americans – in Syria. We’re not exactly talking about another 9/11. Here’s a tip: If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria.
Meanwhile, illegal aliens have killed, raped and maimed thousands of Americans – in America. If you don’t want to be killed, raped or maimed by illegal immigrants in your own country, I have no tips for you. There’s nothing you can do. You’re on your own. Good luck.
Our politicians don’t care. They are obsessed with cleaning up the rest of the world, while we’re getting our clock cleaned at home.
With the media’s Soviet-style censorship about immigrant crime, unless a member of your immediate family has been killed by an illegal alien, you might not have noticed the growing death toll, but here are some small, below-the-fold local news items just from the last two weeks.
ISIS is not at our doorstep. Illegal immigrants are not only at our doorstep, but millions of them are already through the door, murdering far more Americans than ISIS ever will.
That’s what a lot of Americans thought they were voting for last November. Couldn’t we please focus on Americans for a bit? Can’t a Republican Congress do anything to stop the surge of foreign criminals, viruses and parasites crossing our border? Will politicians ever stop gassing on about what’s happening 7,000 miles away and worry about us?
But politicians and the media only want to give us war, while aiding the enemy in the war we’re already in, here at home.
Frank Gaffney thinks that Rep. André Carson, one of two Muslim members of Congress, should lose his seat on the House Intelligence Committee because he might hand classified information to Muslim Brotherhood operatives.
Gaffney, an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist who leads the Center for Security Policy, told WorldNetDaily that Carson, an Indiana Democrat, may use his position to advance “the imposition of Shariah worldwide and the establishment of a caliphate.”
Gaffney bases his claims on Carson’s work with the Islamic Society of North America and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, alleging that the groups were “unindicted co-conspirator[s] in a terror-financing trial.” Actually, the designations were removed due to lack of evidence.
“At a minimum, Rep. Andre Carson’s presence on the House Intelligence Committee will necessitate restrictions on his access to classified information about the presence and operations in this country of what amounts to a subversive Islamist Fifth Column and his participation in the panel’s deliberations concerning how it can best be countered,” Gaffney told WND.
“Since there are, at the moment, few topics more in need of assiduous oversight by the Congress – even if there were no actual risk of compromise of national security secrets or Muslim Brotherhood influence operations associated with Rep. Carson’s presence on the House Intelligence Committee – the potential impediment he may constitute to such work demands his removal from this panel.”
“Given the Muslim Brotherhood’s unalterable commitment to Islamic supremacism,” Gaffney said, “the imposition of Shariah worldwide and the establishment of a caliphate to rule globally in accordance with that totalitarian program – in place of our constitutional republic and all other forms of government, what the Obama administration is doing is bad enough. Its serial efforts to engage, legitimate, fund, arm and otherwise empower the Brotherhood overseas and to rely upon the Brothers’ domestic front organizations as representatives of and outreach vehicles to the Muslim community in this country are intensifying the dangers we face from the Global Jihad Movement.”
Gaffney said it is “wholly unacceptable to have as a member of a key congressional committee charged with overseeing U.S. intelligence and counterintelligence an individual with extensive personal and political associations with the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihadist infrastructure in America.”
“At a minimum, Rep. Andre Carson’s presence on the House Intelligence Committee will necessitate restrictions on his access to classified information about the presence and operations in this country of what amounts to a subversive Islamist Fifth Column and his participation in the panel’s deliberations concerning how it can best be countered.”
Rep. Mia Love of Utah participated in a panel discussion at CPAC this morning on how the conservative movement can better engage young people, which is something for which Love thinks she is particularly well-suited because, as a black conservative, she refuses "to fit this mold that society says I need to fit into" ... just like Martin Luther King, Jr.
Love said that she had recently been invited to speak to black students at the University of Chicago where someone told her that it "makes no sense" how she "can be a black, female from Utah, LDS, Republican, living in today’s America."
The congresswoman said that just as King defied society's racist laws against African Americans, she is bravely standing up against the mold as a black conservative politician.
"Imagine if people like Martin Luther King decided to [accept] that government said he was a second-class citizen," Love said. "We wouldn't be here today":
Steve Deace talked to Jesus and "Jesus made it quite clear that President Obama is not a Christian."
Donald Trump is so serious about pretending to run for president that he claims to have begun hiring campaign staff.
Glenn Beck predictably used the guilty verdict in the Chris Kyle murder case as an opportunity to fume at President Obama.
E.W. Jackson has reportedly been told that he cannot use the auditorium in the Capitol Visitors Center for his racial reconciliation conference, so presumably this will blow up into a full-blown Religious Right crusade in the coming days.
Finally, Jennifer LeClaire is upset that Larry King apparently doesn't believe in God: "King is 81 years old. He wants his body frozen—not burned—when he dies. It's sadly ironic given the fate of those who reject Christ. Let's pray that God will reach him before it's too late."
