Kamal Saleem, the phony ex-terrorist, appeared on The John Ankerberg Show alongside Jerry Boykin of the Family Research Council where he explained how Islamic extremists intend to destroy the US and turn America into a country where Islam reigns supreme. Saleem, a regular guest at Religious Right conferences and radio shows, has claimed to have worked for the PLO, the Muslim Brotherhood, Muammar Qaddafi, Saddam Hussein, the Saudi royal family and Osama bin Laden and to be the nephew of the “Grand Wazir of Islam,” a position which doesn’t exist. He claims that the U.S. is... MORE

Near the end of his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck began to promote the prospect of Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert launching a primary challenge against Republican Senator John Cornyn, resulting in a delegation to the US Senate that would consist of "a couple of ass-kickers" in Gohmert and Ted Cruz. The idea so enthralled Beck that he began laying out his fantasy government of the future, consisting of Cruz as President, Rand Paul as Vice President, Ron Paul as Treasury Secretary, and Gohmert as Secretary of State. When co-host Pat Gray pointed out that if Cruz and Gohmert were... MORE

Louie Gohmert wasn’t the only far-right congressman to stop by The Lars Larson Show in recent days, as Michele Bachmann last week told the conservative radio host that “the Clintons have very close ties to people who have very close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.” “We’re not talking about the Lutheran Brotherhood here, we’re talking about the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann said, once again pointing to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin as a Muslim Brotherhood agent.

Yesterday, after suggesting that the Obama administration is opening the door for domestic terrorism and aiding Al Qaeda, Rep. Louie Gohmert and talk show host Lars Larson talked about the alleged dangers of Obamacare. The Texas Republican claimed that once “Obamacare kicks in fully, you can’t get your pacemaker, you can’t have this, you can’t have that.” He then went after PolitiFact and accused them of being “Democratic operatives” for refuting one of his claims about the reform law. While PolitiFact, a non-partisan group, has rebutted plenty of... MORE

During an interview with a conservative talk show host yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert suggested that terrorists may not fear attacking a mall in a city in Texas as a result of the Obama administration’s supposed support for Al Qaeda. After right-wing commentator Lars Larson brought up the massacre in a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, he told the congressman that he would “bet those Islamic terrorists wouldn’t have tried that in a Texas shopping mall.” “Well, I don’t know, it’s hard to say.” Gohmert replied. “Right now when they know that the...

The former George W. Bush administration official who founded a group to push for the confirmation of Bush’s judicial nominees has come up with the most ridiculous justification yet for a possible Republican filibuster of President Obama’s three nominees to vacancies on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. In a Washington Times column today, C. Boyden Gray argues that Obama’s filling all the seats on the court is in fact a "drive to pack" the court and would “risk politicizing an institution that is – and should be – above... MORE

Birther conspiracy theorist and Tom DeLay co-author Jerome Corsi appeared on InfoWars with Alex Jones to explain his theory that President Obama and Raila Odinga, the former prime minister of Kenya, “made this pact with the radical Islamists in Kenya that was going to allow Al Qaeda to come through the door through Somalia into Kenya,” and are therefore to blame for the Nairobi mall attack by the Al Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab. He said Obama and Odinga “engineered” an “open door to Somali terrorists to pour into” Kenya. “This is the Saudis... MORE

Peter LaBarbera closed out his week co-hosting Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program with Matt Barber pretty much exactly as you would expect, continuing his attacks on gays and railing against the "sin of Sodom." Saying that gay activists desperately "want approval for their lifestyle," LaBarbera was outraged that they are now using the government to "encourage and celebrate sin," so much so that "now they want to attach the sin of Sodom to marriage." Approvingly quoting another anti-gay activist, LaBarbera declared that... MORE

Doesn't it seem a little ironic that Liberty University thrives in large part due to the $775 million a year it takes in through federal student loans and grants? Self-aggrandizing Religious Right activist Patrick J. Mahoney is heading to Turkey on an "historic mission" to "attempt to secure a meeting in Tehran with President Rouhani and Iranian government leaders to discuss Pastor Saeed." The American Renewal Project declares: "Unless politicians see scalps on the wall, they will never respect our policies, marches, sermons or prayer rallies.... MORE
