On his radio program yesterday, after he finished laying out his conspiracy theory about how the government is supposedly protecting an al Qaeda operative responsible for recruiting the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the Boston Marathon bombing, Glenn Beck explained how this was all being done for the benefit of Saudi Arabia.
But it turns out that it is not just global forces that Beck is up against in trying to expose this conspiracy, but "principalities and powers" which is Religious Right speak for satanic and demonic forces.
But Beck is not afraid because he has God on his side... MORE

On Thursday's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton attempted to explain why marriage equality is a violation of the Constitution because it is a violation of the Declaration of Independence which is a violation of natural law which is a violation of God's law.
As Barton sees it, the 7th Amendment's language regarding "in suits at common law" means that the Constitution incorporates all of natural law into our legal system, and since common law is based on God's law, our entire system of government is really based on God's law. And thus gay... MORE

Pat Robertson once again compared Islam to Nazism while speaking on the 700 Club today, arguing that the U.S. should view Muslims as we viewed Nazis during World War II.
“Sure this Islam is a religion,” Robertson said — which is actually new for Robertson as he previously claimed that “Islam is not a religion” — “at the same time it is a system of world government.”
He said that the government “refuses to acknowledge the problem of Islam” even though “during the Second World War we didn’t have any problems saying that... MORE

Gun Owners of America may soon join fellow conservatives in opposing comprehensive immigration reform, warning that a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants would lead to an increase in “anti-gun voters.”
Not only does the group oppose comprehensive legislation for clear partisan reasons, GOA spokesman Mike Hammond told the American Family Association’s news service the group may also work to defeat such bills if they include biometric identification or background checks for jobs.
Pro-gun group branching out
Meanwhile, a pro-gun organization is strongly... MORE

NRA president David Keene appeared on The Mike Huckabee Show today where he told guest host J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman from Arizona, that President Obama is scared of America.
Keene claimed that Obama and his advisers don’t understand the gun debate because they live inside “the confines of urban Chicago or Cambridge, Massachusetts or Washington D.C.,” which Keene astonishingly seems to think are areas unaffected by gun violence.
He also blasted Obama for a comment about how he understands the appeal of gun ownerships in places like rural Iowa where law enforcement... MORE

Former ambassador and perennial presidential candidate Alan Keyes has recently taken a liking to the “Talk to Solomon Show,” a fringe radio program hosted by Stan Solomon and his sidekick “Chief” Steve Davis. Keyes, who frequently appears on the show to warn about the various ways in which progressives are destroying America, was back on Tuesday to discuss the Boston Marathon bombing.
Keyes told Solomon and Davis that he found it “hard to believe” that President Obama, because he supports abortion rights, “was crying anything but crocodile tears... MORE

Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt spoke with Stan Solomon about the Boston marathon bombing, and they both agreed that the left is actually pleased with the attack because it might result in increased government control.
After co-host ‘Chief’ Steve Davis said that the left doesn’t want anyone who doesn’t work for the government to have guns and “they don’t care how many of us get killed, blown up, assaulted, murdered or whatever as long as they can control us by taking away our guns,” Solomon maintained that liberals are even okay with other...

David Outten of the Religious Right media group Movieguide is worried that a new Disney television show may be undermining the traditional family. Outten warns in “Is Disney’s New Princess Undermining Family Values?” that the Disney show Sofia the First, which is about a girl who enters a princess-training academy after her mom, a commoner, marries a King, may be promoting the “modern family” at the expense of “the long-term well-being of children.”
Sofia the First, Disney’s new preschool princess on television, doesn’t need a prince.... MORE
