Beck: 'ISIS Is The Fruit Of Obama'

Glenn Beck dedicated a good part of his radio program this morning to laying out his case that the Obama administration is directly responsible for the rise of ISIS, the establishment of the self-proclaimed caliphate and, by extension, the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

Relying entirely upon one heavily redacted Defense Intelligence assessment from 2012 that was released back in May, Beck entirely misrepresented its findings to declare that the Obama administration sought to use Al Qaeda in Iraq, the precursor to ISIS, to foment a proxy war in Syria in order to topple the Assad regime and allow the creation of a "Salafist Principality" in Eastern Syria.

"Now, I want to make this very clear," Beck said. "I'm charging that this president was the architect behind much of what was going on. I am charging that the president was not surprised by this at all. I'm charging that the president knew clearly these things would happen."

"ISIS is the fruit of Obama," he declared. "No good fruit can grow from a bad tree ... In reality, they saw ISIS coming, they wanted ISIS to come. Would Paris have happened if we would have destroyed ISIS in the first place rather than contain them, rather than arm them, rather than coddle them? This president sowed these seeds. We are now reaping what has been sown by our own president. Do not allow him to plant any more seeds!"

Beck's entire argument relies upon his false claim that these were "key goals" of the Obama administration when, in reality, the intelligence assessment asserted that these were merely "future assumptions about the crisis." The assessment simply noted that the on-going Syrian civil war could evolve into a proxy war, with the Syrian regime getting support from Russia, Iran, and China; not that this was in any way the goal of the Obama administration, as Beck asserted. 

In addition, the assessment noted that Syrian "opposition forces will try to use Iraqi territory as a safe haven for its forces" and that "if the situation unravels, there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria." Such an outcome was not, as Beck claimed, the administration's goal. In fact, the assessment notes in the very next bullet point that such developments would carry the threat of "dire consequences" for the region by providing Al Qaeda in Iraq an "ideal atmosphere" to thrive and by giving it "renewed momentum," which would represent a "grave danger" to efforts to unify and stabilize Iraq.

David Clarke: Refugees Should Be Recalled Like Contaminated SpaghettiOs

This week on his program on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze radio network, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke warned that if the U.S. continues to accept Syrian refugees, it will amount to “national suicide,” comparing refugees to contaminated cans of SpaghettiOs

“Campbell’s soup recently had a recall on SpaghettiOs,” Clarke explained. “A couple of cans of SpaghettiOs turned up with plastic chips in them. Campbell’s doesn’t know how they got in there. You know what Campbell’s had to do? They had to recall that entire lot of SpaghettiOs.”

Clarke said that Campbell’s had to “reasonably” and “safely” assume that every can was contaminated, and therefore had to recall all of the SpaghettiOs. The same logic, according to Clarke, should be applied to Syrian refugees because every one might be a terrorist. Thus, he said, the U.S. must put a full stop to accepting refugees from the war-torn country.

Jonathan Cahn Links Gay Marriage To Paris Terrorist Attacks

After linking the recent terrorist attacks in France to the country’s support for Palestinian statehood, End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn told televangelist Jim Bakker yesterday that America could face terrorist attacks as part of God’s wrath over the legalization of same-sex marriage.

Cahn, who described terrorist attacks as the “second harbinger” of God’s judgment on a nation, claimed that God will punish nations like the U.S. and France for their gay marriage “apostasy” by lifting up violent extremists.

He said that the “second harbinger,” or terrorism, could come to America due to its support for marriage equality “in a way that is greater than the first,” a reference to the September 11 attacks.

Michael Savage Hopes The Sicilian Mafia Will Protect America From ISIS Since Obama Won't

Radio host Michael Savage is convinced that President Obama secretly supports ISIS, and now he is counting on the Sicilian mafia to defend the people of New York.

Yesterday, he interviewed Giovanni Gambino, who was promoting his new book about “the good side of the Mafia,” “The Vindicators.”

Savage voiced concern that the government was going to go after him for his anti-ISIS work, but Gambino reassured him, saying, “I’ll break a few legs, I’ll break an arm or two. Listen, you have to do certain things for the good of the world.”

Gambino also told Savage that he saw “with his own eyes in Bay Ridge” Arab Americans celebrating the 9/11 attacks.

Jonathan Cahn: Paris Attack Was God's Punishment For France's Palestinian Activism

Yesterday, End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” for a program titled “Shocking France and Harbinger Connections” to discuss his claim that the Paris terrorist attacks were tied to biblical prophecy.

Cahn linked the massacre in Paris to the French government’s support for a UN resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which according to Cahn, angered God and became a curse on France.

Robert Spencer: Obama Inviting Terrorists To America To Make Us Like The Rest Of The World

Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer reached deep into the well of anti-Obama conspiracy theories in an interview with Janet Mefferd last week, claiming that the fact that the president was once spotted reading a book by Fareed Zakaria shows that he is intent on making America “level” with the rest of the world by bringing in terrorists in the form of Syrian refugees.

The president wants to admit refugees from the Syrian civil war, Spencer said, “because he’s a leveler and he believes that the United States is the problem in the world.”

As evidence, he cited the fact that Obama was photographed in 2008 reading a copy of Zakaria’s “The Post-American World,” which Spencer — not exactly accurately — claimed argues that the U.S. should be “weakened militarily, politically and economically.”

“I think it’s unarguable that that’s been Obama’s program,” he said. “It certainly has weakened America in all those ways. And the thing is that this Syrian refugee crisis is part of the same thing, that he brings everyone over here, brings even jihadis over here, and here again then we’re just like the rest of the world where this kind of thing like the Paris attacks happens with much more frequency than it has here up to now. And it’s all part of this socialistic leveling and anti-American stance that the president has had not only as president, but throughout his career.”

Kevin Swanson: Homosexuality Is 'The Catalyst By Which Nations Are Destroyed'

Earlier this month, a lesbian candidate was elected mayor of Salt Lake City, and the news did not sit well with Religious Right radio host Kevin Swanson, who told listeners on Friday that this is just one more sign that the end of America is at hand.

Denouncing Mormonism as a “sham religion,” Swanson said that the Salt Lake City mayoral election shows that homosexuality is just “the tip of the iceberg” while other sins like child molestation and porn addiction “hide under the water.”

“Sure enough, the bastion of conservativism is ultimately the place at which the future of this nation is being eroded in the most fundamental sense,” he said.

This led Swanson to talk about a LGBT conference sponsored by The Economist, lamenting that the magazine wants “to be that edgy, progressive organization that promotes the homosexuality in the business world and the very thing that will destroy nations. People don’t believe that, that homosexuality will be the catalyst by which nations are destroyed, because they don’t believe that God exists and they don’t believe God is judge and they don’t believe that God has the right to determine right and wrong, good and evil as he does in the word of God.”

Ted Cruz Touts Endorsement Of Extreme Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Activist Flip Benham

A list of endorsements from faith leaders published by Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign last week includes not only anti-gay pastor Ron Baity but also Philip “Flip” Benham of Operation Save America, a radical activist who campaigns against abortion rights and LGBT equality.

“We’re fighting the Devil and his lies in the world and the flesh, and moving it to a thing called the homosexual agenda — and it’s the Devil’s agenda,” Benham said last year, likening abortion and Islam to “the Devil’s fist” and the “homosexual agenda” to Satan’s “pink-colored glove.”

Benham founded Operation Save America out of what was left of the original iteration of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, expanding its focus to include opposition to gay rights, Islam, and other issues. (The leader of the new Operation Rescue, Troy Newman, has also endorsed Cruz.)

Benham’s recent activism at Operation Save America has included organizing a campaign to harass the judge overseeing the Kim Davis case, blaming the Sandy Hook massacre on the separation of church and state, blaming the Democratic Party for the Aurora mass shooting, declaring war on Islam and heckling congregants at a Unitarian Universalist congregation, which Operation Save America called “a synagogue of Satan,” during a moment of silence for deceased parishioners.

Benham has also crashed gay couples’ weddings to protest their nuptials.

In 2011, Benham was found guilty of stalking an abortion provider “after passing out hundreds of ‘wanted’ posters with the physician’s name and photo on it.” Earlier this year, he charged that the Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray amounted to God’s punishment for legal abortion .

Cruz has already surrounded himself with hate group officials, fanatical anti-abortion activists and radical pastors. Benham will fit right in.

Trump Campaign: Media Conspiracy Suppressing 9/11 Celebration Footage

In an interview today with Breitbart News, Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski defended his candidate’s bogus claim that he saw on TV “thousands and thousands” of Muslim Americans in New Jersey holding celebrations on 9/11 to applaud the attacks.

No footage or reports of such an event exist, and initial press reports about small “rooftop celebrations” were later declared to be “unfounded.”

However, Lewandowski said that reports of the (nonexistent) celebration do in fact exist and that the Trump campaign provided that material to media outlets which, according to Lewandowski, have refused to air it as part of a massive anti-Trump conspiracy.

For the mainstream media to go out and say that this didn’t happen is just factually inaccurate. We know it happened. They should go back and check the FBI records. Mr. Trump has provided them local media outlets that have covered this coverage that they don’t want to go and talk about. He’s provided many opportunities for them to go and see it but they have their own agenda, the media has their own agenda. They want to try and discredit as many people as possible so they can have an establishment candidate come in and think that everything is going to be the same because they are all controlled by the special interests and they are all controlled by the media and it is what the American people are just so tired of.

Ted Cruz Welcomes Endorsement From Pastor Who Linked Ebola To Gay Rights

Ted Cruz has recently boasted of the endorsements he has received from an extremist anti-abortion activist and an anti-gay hate group leader, even courting the support of a radical pastor who backs the death penalty for unrepentant gays.

In a recent press release, Cruz announced the endorsements of a group of faith leaders, including Ron Baity, a pastor and head of the group Reclaim America.

Baity made his name with the campaign to pass a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions in North Carolina, and Cruz recently joined Baity at a rally against marriage equality.

Cruz’s drive to cater to Baity is especially troubling considering that the pastor has likened gay people to “maggots” and “murderers,” endorsed laws prosecuting “sodomites” and urged gay people to “quit being homos.”

Gay people, according to Baity, want to “recruit young people to their perverted, warped agenda” and are bringing about the destruction of America. He has described homosexuality as rancid fruit “filled with wormholes and rotten cores” and a “darkened, twisted, immense depository of depravity.”

Baity has also alleged that God sent Ebola to America as punishment for the gay “lifestyle”: “You think Ebola is bad now, just wait. If it’s not that, it’s going to be something else.”

Again, this is a pastor whom Cruz wants on his “faith leaders” team.
