Beck: 'My Citizenship Has Become A Condemnation'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck announced an effort to raise as much money as he can in order to secure the freedom of Christian families who are threatened by ISIS by getting them out of the Middle East and transporting them to safety in places like Germany or Mexico.

Eventually, this morphed into Beck screaming about the United States supposedly being unwilling to accept Christian refugees who are fleeing ISIS that culminated in Beck vowing to meet these Christians in Mexico and personally walk them across the border into America.

Beck then tied all of this to reports that American aid worker Kayla Mueller had been repeatedly raped by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as well as the recent campaign against Planned Parenthood to declare that being an American citizen is now a complete disgrace that is threatening our eternal salvation and making us no better than the Nazis.

"My citizenship has become a condemnation," he fumed. "My citizenship is something that I'm now starting to look at as a liability for my first citizenship in a higher kingdom ...  If you can't see how evil we have become when I tell you the story of Planned Parenthood keeping baby parts in a freezer that they have jokingly called the nursery you will not see [Josef] Mengele when he arrives. You will don the black uniform and the black hat with the skull and crossbones on it and you will load people into the ovens."

Scott Walker: I Don't Know About Birthright Citizenship

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is trying to walk back his call to end birthright citizenship, which is assured by the 14th Amendment.

In an interview with CNBC, the GOP presidential candidate said today that he actually has no position on the amendment’s clear language: “I'm not taking a position on it one way or the other.”

Walker’s vague response to a straightforward question about the constitutional guarantee of birthright citizenship, which has emerged as a hot topic in the presidential campaign thanks to Donald Trump, is par for the course for the candidate.

Walker, who wrote a book about himself called “Unintimidated,” has told reporters that he doesn’t know if President Obama is a Christian or loves America, refused to say whether he believes in evolution or if people choose to be gay and has consistently equivocated or flip-flopped on topics ranging from reforming the immigration system to abortion rights.

The governor appears to be trying to appeal to a GOP establishment that has tried to alter the party’s stained image on immigration at the same time as he is trying to win over Trump’s supporters “by going on the attack and emphasizing his conservatism on key issues.”

Afraid of angering the party’s dominant right-wing flank, Walker is now bravely standing for nothing.

Rick Santorum Pledges To Sign Unconstitutional Birthright Citizenship Repeal

In an interview yesterday with Newsmax TV after a press conference at which he reiterated his support for ending birthright citizenship, Rick Santorum promised that as president he would “absolutely” sign a bill repealing the right, saying that it could probably be done without a constitutional amendment.

Ignoring the clear history of the 14th Amendment, Santorum told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg that it wasn’t clear whether the Constitution requires that children of foreign nationals born on U.S. soil be granted citizenship. Santorum said that he would leave it up to the Supreme Court to interpret the stipulation that birthright citizenship applies only to people “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States — long interpreted by the courts as excluding only a small class of people such as the children of ambassadors.

“That’s a decision that’s actually appropriately left up to the Supreme Court,” Santorum said. “These are the kinds of decisions that the Supreme Court should be making with respect to how do we determine somewhat vague language in the Constitution, not doing what they did and have been doing routinely is creating new constitutional rights.”

When Malzberg asked if the Supreme Court has ever “weighed in on whether the 14th Amendment covers these babies born of illegals,” Santorum replied that “to my knowledge, they have not.”

In fact, the Supreme Court did just that in 1898, ruling that a California-born child of Chinese immigrants, who were later barred from returning to the United States under the Chinese Exclusion Act, could not be denied citizenship under the 14th Amendment. That case, U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, cemented the right to birthright citizenship guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.


 

Louie Gohmert: Trust Iran's Leaders Over US Officials, Who Are Inciting God's Wrath

Rep. Louie Gohmert seized on a debunked AP report that alleged that Iranians will be allowed to inspect their own nuclear sites under the recent nuclear accord, telling Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on his radio program yesterday that he’d “tend to believe the Iranian leaders” over the Obama administration, which he said is provoking God’s judgment on America.

Citing the AP story, which was revised soon after publication, the Texas Republican claimed that President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry either “have no clue what’s going on” or “they’re flat-out lying about everything they say.”

“I tend to believe the Iranian leaders” over the administration officials, Gohmert added.

He then warned that Obama and Kerry are provoking God’s wrath on America: “This is a disaster and judgment will come down on the United States for doing this kind of damage, if it goes through, to the country of Israel.”

Beck: If Everyone Saw Broadway's 'Amazing Grace,' It Would Put An End To #BlackLivesMatter

For the last month, Glenn Beck has been heaping praise upon the Broadway play "Amazing Grace," which tells the story of the former trader who eventually penned the title hymn. After seeing a preview of the show in July, Beck couldn't praise it highly enough, calling it "profound and personal wake up call" and "a miracle":

What was happening was something far greater than a really special broadway show. We were being transformed, our hearts were softened and there was a spiritual healing that was happening. When, in the end, Amazing Grace was sung, I and others apparently, felt pulled out of our seats. It felt almost wrong to sit and I, for one, could not. Half of the audience stood up almost together, weeping. The other half leaped to their feet the minute the song was over. I have seen 100’s of Broadway’s shows over the years but I do not recall one where people were as fast to give a standing ovation as this show. It was the original cast of Les Miserable except the storyline was more powerful and the timing was only as God could time it. That is saying something I know. I never stay for the end of shows as we always leave on the last line. We stood for the 8 minute ovation. On the way out white and black were crying and some of us even hugged each other. “Oh, if everyone in the country could experience this show, many of our problems would fall away.” I thought and heard others say.

Audiences and critics, on the other hand, have been less enraptured and the play is struggling at the box office and so Beck brought the play's writer on to his radio show yesterday in an effort to promote the show and encourage his audience to buy tickets in order to keep it afloat, saying that if everyone in America would just see this play, it would immediately put an end to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

"There is something special about this," Beck said. "There's something happening with this show. I mean, if every American could see this show, you wouldn't be having people say, 'Black lives matter and you can't dare say white lives do ... All lives matter? You don't dare say all lives matter; it's black lives matter!' We would have an end of that conversation, literally."

Ted Cruz Defends 'Anchor Baby' Slur To Radio Host Who Wants To Enslave Undocumented Immigrants

Earlier this week, Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson proposed that states press undocumented immigrants into indentured servitude, asking a skeptical listener, “What’s wrong with slavery?” So, naturally, Sen. Ted Cruz dropped by Mickelson’s program this morning to discuss assaults on American Christians by the “atheist Taliban” and to discuss illegal immigration.

When Mickelson asked Cruz if he thought “the term ‘anchor baby’” is an offensive way to describe the American-born children of undocumented immigrants, who are automatically granted birthright citizenship under the Constitution, Cruz laughed.

“You know, it’s amazing what the media chooses to get offended by,” he said. “They don’t get offended when an illegal alien murders Kate Steinle in San Francisco. They don’t get offended when the Obama administration releases 104,000 violent criminal illegal aliens. And yet they get offended by people trying to solve real public policy problems.”

This led Mickelson to make a convoluted argument that his dictionary says that “anchor baby” is offensive but also defines marriage as between a man and a woman, so liberals must be wrong.

“You know, there is power, Jan, to simply speaking the truth, to not engaging in this politically correct nonsense and double-speak,” Cruz agreed. “Speak honestly and candidly about the challenges we face, whether it’s the assault on marriage — and we have the Supreme Court and the radical left trying to forcibly redefine marriage and to tear down what has been a fundamental building block of our society from time immemorial — or when it comes to, on immigration.”

Later in the interview, Cruz told Mickelson that “one of the real benefits of Donald Trump’s being in this race is it’s forced the mainstream media to talk about illegal immigration.” This, he thought, would ultimately turn anti-immigrant voters to him, because “for years, I’ve been leading the fight, actually been standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Steve King.”

“I stood with Jeff Sessions in the Senate and Steve King in the House and we led the fight and defeated amnesty in the United States Congress,” he boasted.

Cruz also told Mickelson that he would “absolutely” support King’s legislation to end birthright citizenship, which King claims can be done without amending the Constitution.

“You know, it is an open legal question whether changing birthright citizenship could be done through statute or could be done through a constitutional amendment,” Cruz claimed. “There are serious constitutional scholars on both sides of that argument. As a policy matter, I think it is basic common sense that we shouldn’t be incentivizing illegal immigration, that it doesn’t make sense to provide rewards for people to break the law and come here.”

“In the end, I think we should pursue whatever means will be effective in ending birthright citizenship,” he said.

While ending birthright citizenship would take a “long-term solution,” Cruz said, if he is elected he will immediately “put boots on the ground to secure the border” and “stop releasing violent criminal illegal aliens.”

Ted Cruz to Jan Mickelson: 'Atheist Taliban' Attacking Religious Liberty

This morning, just two days after Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson caused a national controversy when he suggested that states enslave undocumented immigrants who refuse to leave, asking, “What’s wrong with slavery?,” Sen. Ted Cruz joined Mickelson’s program to discuss his upcoming rally in Iowa which will bring together various supposed victims of anti-Christian persecution.

Mickelson asked Cruz to discuss his fight against the “brazenness of the atheist Taliban” and the fact that “anytime they furrow their brow at anyone [people] fold up and go home and give them what they want.”

Cruz, who has previously railed against what he called a gay “jihad" against Christians, apparently liked Mickelson’s phrase, and took it up while describing his work fighting against church-state separation efforts.

“There is an assault on faith and an assault on religious liberty that we see across this country and it has never been as bad as it is right now,” he said, claiming that “radical atheists and liberals” are “driving any acknowledgment of God out of the public square.”

“There are these zealots — as you put it, the atheist Taliban — that seek to tear down any acknowledgment of God in the public square, and it’s contrary to our Constitution, it’s contrary to who we are as a people.”

Fischer: Natural Disasters, Military Defeats And Economic Catastrophes Are Always Warnings From God

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio program yesterday with a lesson from the Book of Joel explaining that natural disasters, military defeats and economic catastrophe are always warnings from God to repent.

"God uses military defeats, natural disasters, economic catastrophes," he said, "they are God's way of rousing a deaf nation. These things are megaphones that God uses to call a wandering and wicked nation back to himself in repentance and prayer."

"So the bottom line with these catastrophes," Fischer concluded, "whether they're military, whether they're natural, whether they're economic, this is God's way of calling a nation back to repentance. The only question is will we listen."
