Klingenschmitt Can't Quite Bring Himself To Call For Obama's Overthrow

On Friday's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt responded to a report that, in 2010, President Obama had told the heads of the five military branches that they should resign if they could not support the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell by seemingly almost calling for the military to overthrow Obama before apparently thinking better of it.

Saying that if he had been put in that situation, he would have resigned rather than "homosexualize the military," Klingenschmitt blasted the service chiefs "for compromising and submitting to [Obama's] tyranny."

"One of these days, the military ought to just rise up ...," Klingenschmitt said before suddenly pausing in the middle of the sentence. After thinking about what he was saying for a moment, Klingenschmitt seemed to realize where he was heading and decided to change direction, dismissively waving his hand and simply saying  "well, who knows what they ought to do":

The Never-Ending Tale Of The Little Girl Who Could Not Pray

Last week, we wrote a post about the fact that the story at the center of a recent column by Todd Starnes claiming that a young girl had supposedly been told that she was not allow to pray before eating her lunch at school had been definitively debunked after the shool in question conducted an investigation and "found zero evidence an incident ever occurred."

In a gesture of goodwill, the school offered an apology to the family nonetheless and it was seemingly accepted through their attorney, Jeremy Dys of the Liberty Institute, who issued a statement saying:

"We are grateful for the apology offered by Seminole County Schools. The Perez family gladly accepts this apology, along with the assurances to the community by the School Board that students in Seminole County School are free to exercise their First Amendment freedoms while at school."

That should have been the end of the entire saga, but apparently Dys and the family are intent on keeping it going (presumably to benefit Todd Starnes forthcoming book) a little longer and have now reversed course by rejecting the school's apology, accusing the school of never having done an investigation in the first place, and threatening legal action:

Two days after stating that Gabriella Perez's family had accepted the apology, lawyer Jeremy Dys said their position changed after reading the comments of district spokesman Michael Lawrence in the Orlando Sentinel.

Dys said it is clear now the district's response wasn't "a real apology." In addition, "we're not really confident the investigation actually took place," he said.

He sent a letter to Seminole schools on Friday requesting video footage from the school, emails to or about the family and phone logs relating to the case, including documentation of harassing or negative phone calls.

Gabriella, a 5-year-old kindergartner, told her parents that a staffer at Carillon Elementary said she could not pray over her lunch sometime in March. Lawrence, the district spokesman, said Wednesday an investigation had turned up "zero evidence" the incident occurred.

The girl's father, Marcos Perez, is vice president of sales for a Christian book publisher promoting a book about "the attack on traditional values" in America. The family began homeschooling Gabriella after she described the cafeteria incident.

Dys' letter also claims Lawrence made "false and defamatory statements publicly and intentionally" about Gabriella and her family, and requested that he be disciplined.

"Mr. Lawrence went out and essentially called our client a liar," Dys said Friday.

The school district did an investigation into the alleged incident and concluded that "there's no proof whatsoever" that it even occurred and that the person identified by the young girl as having told her not to pray was nowhere near the lunchroom at the time it supposedly happened ... and now the very people who brought these allegations are threatening legal action, claiming that they are the victims of "false and defamatory statements" because their claims turned out to be bogus.

Bryan Fischer Is Inadvertently Making Sense: 'There Are Consequences For Making A Foolish Declaration'

As we have noted several times before, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them and he continues to demonstrate this fact regularly on his radio program, as he did once again today.

Fischer spent part of a segment discussing the fact that Dan Haseltine, lead singer of the Christian rock band Jars of Clay, had announced his support for gay marriage. In response to this announcement, Fischer said, some Christian radio stations have begun boycotting the band and refusing to play their songs while some fans have deleted their albums from the music libraries.

Haseltine, not surprisingly, does not appreciate such responses, but Fischer was entirely unsympathetic, declaring (approximately 5:00 in) that it was because "you are rejecting the authority of the word of God and maybe Christians have a problem with that."

"If you want to do that, that's fine" Fischer added, "but then don't complain when there are consequences for making a foolish declaration like that":

For once, we completely agree with Fischer! As we always say, the flipside of the First Amendment is that while everyone is free to say whatever they believe, that doesn't mean that they are also exempt from suffering the consequences of voicing those beliefs.

Of course, it is usually the Religious Right that loudly screams "persecution" anytime someone that they agree with actually suffers consequences for making foolish declarations ... like when Bryan Fischer said that A&E's decision to suspend Phil Robertson for making anti-gay comments was proof that Christians were being persecuted for refusing to accept the Mark of the Beast:

When Christian radio stations refuse to play Haseltine's music, that is just the "consequences" of his "foolish declaration," according to Fischer.

But when A&E temporarily suspended Robertson for his "foolish declaration," Fischer went on and on about how Christians were being oppressed, persecuted, and prohibited from engaging in commerce.

The Prophet Glenn Beck Warns That Society Is 'Too Far Gone' And Only The Bible Can Save Us

With every passing day, Glenn Beck's transformation into the self-appointed prophetic leader of a doomsday cult grows more pronounced as he uses his network to issue increasingly dire warnings about the impending and inevitable destruction of America while literally thumping his Bible.

Just take a look at yesterday's morning meeting where Beck harangued his staff that "the system" is in a full-fledged nosedive.

"It's in a straight pitch down," Beck proclaimed. "That's what our society is doing right now. Straight pitch down!"

The only solution, of course, is the Bible.

"This has all the answers," Beck said while smacking his hand upon his Bible. "This is the only answer. Period. We are too far gone. Any other fix won't do it ... This is the only parachute. Jump out of the plane!"

Todd Starnes Gets Definitively Debunked

A few weeks ago, we wrote a post about the amazing coincidence that was at the center of one of Todd Starnes' recent columns about a young girl who had allegedly been told that she was not allowed to pray before eating her lunch in her elementary school lunch room.

As it turned out, the young girl just so happened to be the daughter of the man who is the Vice President of Sales at the Christian publishing house that is publishing Starnes' next book, which just so happens to be all about how religious liberty is under attack in America.

Even after this rather curious connection was pointed out and the school said there was no evidence that the incident had even happened, the parents and their lawyers at the Liberty Institute continued to demand an investigation and an apology from the school; at one point even arranging a line-up of school employees so the girl could identify just which teacher had allegedly told her that she was not allowed to pray.

The school at the center of this "controversy" bent over backwards to satisfy the parents and conducted a full investigation into the incident. Yesterday, the school district announced its findings and, as expected, found the allegations to be completely bogus:

School officials said Wednesday that they can't find any evidence to suggest that a kindergartner was told not to pray in a Seminole County elementary lunchroom.

But the school district apologized anyway, and a lawyer for the girl's parents said they are satisfied with the outcome.

"We found zero evidence an incident ever occurred," said district spokesman Mike Lawrence. "There's no proof whatsoever."

...

As for the identified staffer, a school-district investigator has concluded that "there is no way possible that person was anywhere near the lunchroom" that kindergartners and first-graders use. In addition to the student and her family, the district has interviewed staffers, the accused adult and Gabriella's classmates, Lawrence said.

Predictably, the parents and their right-wing attorney are trying to use the fact that the school issued a perfunctory apology to spin this as a victory:

In a statement, Jeremy Dys, the family's attorney, said, "We are grateful for the apology offered by Seminole County Schools. The Perez family gladly accepts this apology, along with the assurances to the community by the School Board that students in Seminole County School are free to exercise their First Amendment freedoms while at school."

Beck Goes Full Barton, Claims One-Third Of The Constitution And Declaration Came Straight From Deuteronomy

On today's radio broadcast, Glenn Beck went full David Barton, claiming that one-third of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence came straight out of the Bible; more specifically, right out of the Book of Deuteronomy.

Continuing his argument from last night that the Bible is the "cookbook" of America's system of government, Beck echoed David Barton's claim that the Founding Fathers were so well-versed in the Bible that they quoted it continually in their correspondence.

When Barton made this very claim on Beck's show a few years ago, we pointed out that it was total nonsense, but Beck cited it as true nonetheless this morning before adding his own bizarre assertion that "thirty-three percent of every federal line in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence ... comes from the Book of Deuteronomy":

Not surprisingly, this claim is also pure Barton bunk, as Chris Rodda explained back when Barton made this claim on Beck's program in 2010.

But even worse, Beck somehow managed to utterly misrepresent things even further by claiming not that one-third of the quotes from the Founders came from the Bible, which is what Barton misrepresents the original study to claim, but that one-third of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence came straight out of Deuteronomy.

Fischer: 'Gay Activists Are Like Leeches'

Bryan Fischer is still miffed by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to withdraw from the culture war over marriage, declaring on his radio program yesterday that gay activists are like leeches for whom no amount of blood is ever enough.

Pointing to opposition to efforts by Chick-fil-A to open restaurants in New York City, Fischer cited Proverbs 30:15 to proclaim that "gay activists are like leeches."

"The point here," Fischer said, "is that with the homosexual lobby, you cannot ever give them enough. Don't even try. There's no point in making concessions. There's no point in capitulating. There's no point in yielding to their demands. There's no point in offering them some kind of appeasement in the hopes that they will leave you alone, that they will leave you in peace. It won't work":

Glenn Beck Wants The Bible Taught In Public Schools Because It Has Been 'The Only Textbook We Needed'

Glenn Beck has been on a kick recently hailing the Bible as the solution to every single one of our nation's problems, so it comes as no surprise to see him now throwing his support behind an effort led by Hobby Lobby president Steve Green to get the Bible taught in public schools all over the nation.

Hailing the Green family as "true Americans" during his morning meeting, Beck turned directly to the camera and urged viewers to shop at Hobby Lobby in order to support them because "these people are the best."

On last night's television program, Beck then interviewed Jerry Pattengale, who is overseeing the development of this Bible curriculum program, declaring that trying to build a Western democracy without studying the Bible is like trying to become a chef without ever reading a cookbook.

"This is our cookbook," Beck said of the Bible. "If you don't understand this, you ain't gonna be able to make anything that looks like a Western government and a free society."

Later in the discussion, Beck said that the more he reads the Scriptures, the more convinced he becomes that the Bible is "the only textbook we needed" because every piece of human wisdom comes directly out of that book.

"I really, truly believe," Beck proclaimed, "you could use that book and that book alone and teach a man to be a great man with no other book than that":

Matthew Hagee: 'What Happened In 1492 Happened Again Last Week In The Ukraine'

Last year, John Hagee released a book entitled "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change" which claims that God is sending signs to humanity in the form of multiple blood moons and that the world is "going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world."

As Hagee explained in an op-ed published in The Christian Post, there will be four blood moons over the next two years and each will occur on days "that are significant to Israel and also occur during Jewish Feasts," which is a sign that "God is getting ready to change the course of human history once again."

On this week's installment of the "Hagee Hotline," Matthew Hagee seized upon reports that anti-Semitic flyers were distributed in Eastern Ukraine last week allegedly telling Jews to register with the local government and pay or fee or else have their possessions confiscated and be deported as proof that the signs of the blood moon were coming true.

Though the flyers were widely regarded as being a hoax, Hagee said that the distribution of such flyers was a repeat of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492, which also reportedly took place during a blood moon.

"What happened in 1492 happened again last week in the Ukraine," Hagee said, "on the first of four blood moons":

Fischer: It's 'Inexcusable' That America Does Not Have Russian-Style Anti-Gay Laws

Bryan Fischer has made no secret of the fact that he wants to see Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws passed in the United States, going so far as to praise Vladimir Putin as "the lion of Christianity" for leading his nation's crackdown on gays.

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Fischer again voiced his support for implementing such laws in America, declaring that it is "inexcusable" that these sorts of laws are not being put into place here.

"That's a policy we ought to have in the United States," he said of the Russian laws. "It's inexcusable that we allow vulnerable, innocent young children to be indoctrinated, brainwashed, propagandized into thinking that homosexual conduct is perfectly normal and absolutely benign behavior when it absolutely is not":

Glenn Beck Says David Barton's 'Founder's Bible' Is 'The Only Answer' To Saving America

Last week, Glenn Beck had David Barton on his television program where he heaped praise upon Barton's last book, "The Founder's Bible." Now Beck has begun personally promoting Barton's book during advertising breaks on his show, as he did last night when he beseeched his audience to buy the book because is represents "the only answer" to our problems.

"This is, honest to God, we are out of all other options," Beck said, holding up Barton's book. "This is the only answer and he have to know it inside and out ... We have to start reading this with our kids that the table at dinner every night."

"I can't urge you enough to get involved and get this," he concluded before, later, interviewing Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center, who declared that America is God's "chosen nation" because the Holy Spirit inspired the Founding Fathers to create this country and our Constitution.

That prompted Beck to proclaim that "it wasn't a coincidence that the Democratic Party denied God three times," referring to the vote that took place during the 2012 convention.

"Three times they called that and all the biblical meaning behind that," Beck marveled. "God's just going to say, he's begging us, please don't do this":

Klingenschmitt: World Vision Board Member Who Resigned Is 'Full Of The Devil'

Following World Vision's backtracking from its decision to allow legally married gay couples to work for the organization last month, World Vision board member Jacquelline Fuller resigned, saying that she "disagreed with the decision to exclude gay employees who marry."

For "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt, this is cause for celebration because Fuller was "so full of the devil that she doesn't want to care for poor people anymore unless she can homosexualize them at the same time."

"That's a demonic spirit," Klingenschmitt said, "and we're going to call her out on that":

Glenn Beck Is Not One To Doubt The Miracle Of The Jesus Pancake

Last week, the owners of a cafe in California cooked up a pancake that, they believed, looked a lot like Jesus and Glenn Beck spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast today defending the possibility that said pancake really could be a message from God.

Saying that while doesn't really believe in these sorts of messages, he is also "not willing to reject things that people interpret as a good sign of hope" because people often receive "divinely inspired" signs from God that other people mock as ridiculous.

"I don't want to question God," Beck said, because "I really believe we are entering a season of miracles and I'm not going to guess on somebody else's miracle that is giving them peace."

Eventually, Beck had a photo of the Shroud of Turin put up on the screen alongside a picture of the Jesus pancake to make the case that the two images looked similar, based mainly on "the shape of the nose" in each image.

Sadly for Beck, his co-hosts were not buying it.

"What are you talking about?" asked an incredulous Stu Burguiere. "It's not similar at all. You're looking for things you want to find":

Fischer: Jesus Doesn't Want You 'To Give Any Kind Of Help' To Someone Getting A Divorce

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who was seeking advice on how he should respond to fellow Christians who had sided with his wife when the two got divorced a few years ago.

Saying that his wife had engaged in adultery and then sought a divorce against his wishes, the caller was mystified by the fact that his "brothers and sisters in Christ" had shown up in court to testify on behalf of his wife during a custody hearing.

Fischer was likewise mystified by this, primarily because Jesus said that no Christian should ever provide "any kind of aid or comfort or help to a person who wants to break up a marriage."

"We shouldn't be anywhere around that," Fischer said. "We shouldn't give help, any kind of help - especially testifying in court - we shouldn't give help to the individual that wants to break up what God has joined together."

Doing so, he warned, puts one in direct conflict "with the teaching of Jesus Christ himself":

Glenn Beck Says That America Is Just As Anti-Semitic As Ukraine

The most fascinating aspect of Glenn Beck's nightly television program is the "behind the scenes" look that it has begun to air in the form of excerpts from the morning meetings that Beck holds with his senior staff.  The practice of filming and airing these clips began a few months ago and the segments have gotten progressively longer, so much so that they have begun to take up large chunks of the program that used to be filled by Beck's opening monologue. 

What is most remarkable about these clips is that they show a room full of intelligent, independent adults who gather day and day to be lectured by Beck, who is part doomsday prophet and part self-help guru, on every issue imaginable as if he alone possess some amazing insights into the true nature of the universe when, in reality, it is usually little more than Beck spewing nonsense.

Take yesterday's meeting, for example, where they were discussing the situation in Eastern Ukraine where Jews were reportedly being told to register with the government or have their possessions confiscated and be deported. The flyers were widely regarded as being a hoax, but Beck echoed a warning issued by a Holocaust survivor that Jews should leave Ukraine anyway ... but then added that there was really no place for them to go because antisemitism was just as bad in America as it is in Ukraine.

"The question is where do you run?," Beck asked his staff rhetorically. "Think the United States is any less anti-Semitic?  I mean, yes it is less anti-Semitic but we're doing it in our universities. We're growing it here":

Once Again David Barton Falsely Claims The Obama Administration Won't Prosecute Child Pornography

As we have noted many times before, the simple fact that a claim happens to be demonstrably false has never stopped David Barton from repeating that claim endlessly. That tradition remains intact as today, on his "WallBuilders Live" radio program, Barton once again asserted that the Department of Justice under President Obama has entirely refused to prosecute those who traffic in child pornography.

Barton made this same claim back in 2011 and we pointed out then that he was lying, but that didn't stop him from making the false claim once again today, asserting that, until recently, nobody in America supported pedophilia but now it is gaining support because the Obama administration is turning a blind eye to the issue of child pornography by refusing to prosecute anyone for it.

"The Obama administration has refused to prosecute any child pornography," Barton lied, "which is, again, sex between children and adults ... They have refused to prosecute any of it":

We would just like to point out that, in the last week alone, the FBI has issued no less than six different press releases announcing indictments of or sentences for people involved in trafficking of child pornography.

How exactly these sentences are being handed down if, as Barton claims, the Department of Justice "has refused to prosecute any child pornography" is beyond us.

But, once again, the mere fact that Barton is demonstrably wrong about this claim will not, of course, stop him from repeating it time and time again.

Klingenschmitt: ENDA Will Force Women To Share Bathrooms With Men Who 'May Not Be Sitting Down When He Goes Pee'

Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from a New Mexico photography studio that had refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony but, for some reason, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt was still praying that the Court would agree to hear the case on the Friday broadcast of his "Pray In Jesus Name" program.

During his discussion of the case, Klingenschmitt complained that non-discrimination laws actually result in discrimination against Christians and that somehow resulted in him railing about ENDA yet again as he warned that the law, if passed, would force women to have to share the bathroom with "cross-dressing men ... who may or may not be sitting down when he goes pee":

Matt Barber Doesn't Recognize Satire And It's All Will Saletan's Fault

Earlier this month, after Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned amid outrage over his support for California's Proposition 8 anti-gay marriage effort in 2008, Will Saletan wrote a satirical column about the controversy on Slate called "Purge The Bigots" in which he sarcastically called upon activists to start targeting every one of the 35,000 people who donated to Prop. 8 in order to get them fired from their jobs as well.

On Friday night, Matt Barber posted his weekly column, first on WorldNetDaily but it was soon reposted on various right-wing websites, which was based entirely on his own mistaken assumption that Saletan's column has been serious, which sent Barber into a full-blow fury, warning his readers that Saletan had just given "his fellow rainbow-shirts their jackbooted marching orders" to begin the wholesale destruction of Christians in America:

No, this is not parody. It is not a bad joke. It is not Mr. Saletan satirically assuming the role of Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Nazi propaganda minister, in an effort to underscore how utterly out of control his own “progressive” movement has become and, in the spirit of argumentum ad absurdum, gently coax his fellow bohemians from madness.

Neither was Slate joking. They were not joining in on Saletan’s fun, pretending, for a day, to be “Nationalsozialistischen Briefe,” Goebbels’ parallel publication, in a clever endeavor to use the power of metaphor as a scrub brush to wash away the stench of totalitarianism from an American left bathed in it.

No, these ruthless cultural Marxists are as serious as Josef Stalin's heart attack.

Continued Saletan: “To organize the next stage of the purge, I’ve compiled the financial data into three tables.” He then listed details from, and linked to, the Proposition 8 hit-list reportedly leaked by the Obama IRS and meticulously assembled and published by the Los Angeles Times.

This was all by design. It’s what led to Brendan Eich’s career beheading. But Eich was just the opening act. The list provides the exact names, employers, places of residence and dollar amounts of every single person in America who donated even a dime to the Golden State’s campaign to protect natural marriage. (I realize it’s hopelessly symbolic, but as matter of principle I will not link to the list.)

This is a level of voter intimidation and journalistic terrorism on the part of the Obama administration, the L.A. Times and Slate magazine that is unprecedented in American history. With their blessing, indeed their encouragement, Herr Saletan then gave his fellow rainbow-shirts their jackbooted marching orders:

“If we’re serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we’d better get cracking on the rest of the list,” he said, candidly closing, “Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.”

You do understand this, right? Obama, the L.A. Times, Slate and America’s larger “progressive” movement are dead serious about purging Christians and other traditionalists from the workplace. It’s coming. Mozilla was just the opening salvo.

In the very same way Eich’s forced resignation was deliberately calculated to terrorize any American who might resist the left’s sexual anarchist agenda, and support some future, legally executed pro-family ballot initiative, the clear purpose behind releasing both the Prop 8 donor list and publishing the Slate article was to, likewise, instill terror in the hearts of Christians and other traditionalists who support natural marriage, family and human sexuality. It was a not-so-subtle shot over the bow.

It was also a call to arms.

It’s fight or flight time, America.

The only problem for Barber was that Saletan's column was a parody, so he was quickly forced to remove his column and re-write it, resulting in a new version that retained the original's dire message while additionally blaming Saletan for the fact that Barber had utterly failed to understand that his original column was satire.

Barber even went so far as to begin his re-written column with an author's note that admits that Saletan "contacted me claiming that his piece was intended as satire" before magnanimously announcing that "I have given him the benefit of the doubt":

Now, to be fair, Saletan later claimed that his article was intended as satire to illustrate the hypocrisy of his own “progressive” movement. Many, if not most, of his readers seemed to miss the joke,and the article’s comments section quickly filled with people agreeing that it was, indeed, time to “purge the bigots” (read: Christians).

The Fox News Channel observed that the piece “may or may not be tongue-in-cheek.” Satire is traditionally somewhat clever, witty and fairly easy to recognize as such. Mr. Saletan’s piece was none of these things. Nevertheless, I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

...

So here we have Mr. Saletan playing the role of today’s Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Nazi propaganda minister, in an effort, albeit a clumsy one, to underscore how utterly out of control his own “progressive” movement has become and, in the spirit of argumentum ad absurdum, gently coax his fellow bohemians from madness.

Slate was apparently in on the fun too, pretending, for a day, to be “Nationalsozialistischen Briefe,” Goebbels’ parallel publication, in an equally awkward attempt to use the power of metaphor as a scrub brush to wash away the stench of totalitarianism from an American left bathed in it.

But as you read the article a frightening reality quickly rises to the surface. It’s neither funny nor untrue. None of it. The cultural Marxist American left is 100-percent serious about “purging” Christians from society.

They’re as serious as Josef Stalin’s heart attack.

Continued Saletan: “To organize the next stage of the purge, I’ve compiled the financial data into three tables” (he actually did this). He then listed details from, and linked to, the Proposition 8 hit list reportedly leaked by the Obama IRS and meticulously assembled and published by the Los Angeles Times.

This was all by design. It’s what led to Brendan Eich’s career beheading. But Eich was just the opening act. The list provides the exact names, employers, places of residence and dollar amounts of every single person in America who donated even a dime to the Golden State’s campaign to protect natural marriage (I realize it’s hopelessly symbolic, but as matter of principle I will not link to the list).

This is a level of voter intimidation and journalistic terrorism on the part of the Obama administration and the L.A. Times that is unprecedented in American history.

Joking or not, Herr Saletan then gave the rainbow-shirts their jackbooted marching orders: “If we’re serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we’d better get cracking on the rest of the list,” he said, concluding, “otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.”

You do understand this, right? Obama, the L.A. Times and America’s larger “progressive” movement are dead serious about purging Christians and other traditionalists from both the workplace and society at large. It’s coming. Mozilla was just the opening salvo.

In the very same way Eich’s forced resignation was deliberately calculated to terrorize any American who might resist the left’s sexual anarchist agenda, and support some future, legally executed pro-family ballot initiative, the clear purpose behind releasing the Prop 8 donor list was to instill terror in the hearts of Christians and other traditionalists who support natural marriage, family and human sexuality. It was a not-so-subtle shot over the bow.

It was also a call to arms.

It’s fight or flight time, America.

Irony Alert: Beck Tells Candidates They Had 'Better Learn About Who The People Are You're Standing Next To'

On yesterday's radio program, Glenn Beck interviewed Shane Osborn and Ben Sasse, both of whom are running for the Senate in Nebraska.  The interview with Osborn was rather awkward from the get-go as Freedomworks, which has deep ties to Beck and his network, had initially endorsed him only to rescind its endorsement and support Sasse instead after Beck heaped praise upon him.

Near the end of the conversation, Osborn mentioned that he would be holding a town hall later that night with Grover Norquist, apparently unaware that Beck absolutely loathes Norquist.  The revelation did not go unnoticed by Beck, who returned from a commercial break following the interview to question Osborn's judgment for associating with someone like Norquist.

"Grover Norquist is truly one of the most dangerous men supposedly on our side," Beck said. "He, I believe, is the George Soros shadowy figure who is not who you think he is."

When co-host Pat Gray tried to play devil's advocate and defend Osborn by saying maybe he only knew about Norquist's anti-tax efforts and not all of the other "dangerous" stuff Norquist is supposedly doing, Beck wasn't swayed.

"You're a senator," Beck said of Osborn. "It's your job to learn about these things, if that's your job. If you're going to be a senator, you had better learn about who the people are you're standing next to! It's your responsibility:"

We would like to point out that Glenn Beck regularly welcomes various congressional candidates onto his radio program, as well as several sitting members of Congress, including Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

So allow us to, for once, agree with Beck and say to all of those candidates who are eagerly lining up to stand next to him: "You had better learn about who the people are you're standing next to! It's your responsibility."

Steve Malzberg Says Chelsea Clinton's Pregnancy Was Deliberately Timed To Benefit Hillary's Presidential Campaign

Yesterday, Chelsea Clinton announced that she and her husband are expecting their first child, which also means that Bill and Hillary Clinton will be welcoming their first grandchild right as the former Secretary of State begins her anticipated run for the White House.

And this is all just too much of a coincidence for Newsmax host Steve Malzberg, who went off yesterday speculating that Chelsea's pregnancy was intentionally timed to benefit her mother's presidential campaign.

Pointing to an interview Chelsea gave to Glamour Magazine last year in which she said that she and her husband had "decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby, and please, call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day," Malzberg concluded that Bill and Hillary were pressuring Chelsea to get pregnant at a time that would benefit her campaign.

"Pardon the skeptic in me," Malzberg said, "but what great timing! I mean, purely accidental, purely an act of nature, purely just left up to God. And God answered Hillary Clinton's prayers and she going to have the prop of being a new grandma while she runs for president. It just warms the heart. It brings a tear to my eye. It really does. Wow!"
