Beck: Netanyahu's Victory Shows That 'The Lord Does Exist And He Is Sitting On His Throne'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that the victory of Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party in yesterday's Israeli election proves that "the Lord does exist."

Repeating the bogus right-wing claim that the Obama administration had used tax dollars to fund an anti-Netanyahu election campaign, Beck declared that "our administration is completely out of control and criminal," but that God carried Likud to victory despite the president's dirty tricks.

"The Lord does exist and he is sitting on his throne," Beck declared, saying that there was no way that Netanyahu should have won the election and the fact that he did is proof that "God exists."

"God exists for us as well," he continued. "No matter what they have, no matter how dirty they play it, if we do what we're supposed to do, the scales will be even. God will have his thumb on the scale":

Beck: Dolce & Gabbana Boycott Is Like Locking Galileo In The Tower

Glenn Beck is outraged over the fact that Elton John has called for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana after the fashion designers voiced their opposition to same-sex families and in vitro fertilization, saying that such a boycott is like locking Galileo in a tower for opposing the conventional science of the day.

Beck spent the opening monologue of his television program last night warning that "we are on the path of putting Galileo back in the tower" because progressives are out to destroy anyone who holds different opinions and cited the Dolce & Gabbana boycott as evidence.

"Is this the kind of freedom that we're at?" Beck asked. "Anyone who feels the same as Dolce and Gabbana, let me ask you, are they empowered to express their view or are they now afraid that Hollywood and progressives will come after them? The party of progress is making progress indeed, back to the Dark Ages, back to the days when differing scientific views were labeled heresy and black magic. As the march toward conformity continues, America gets farther and farther away from the place where those who will change the world with art and science and music, those who will bring on the next Renaissance just might find themselves locked up in a tower and sadly never paint the next Mona Lisa":

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 3/17/15

  • Amid mounting questions about misuse of funds, Rep. Aaron Schock abruptly announced today that he is resigning from Congress.
  • What kind of prophet is Glenn Beck when he admits that the actual order, place, and timing of the events that he has predicted "will vary wildly"?
  • Speaking of Beck, we challenge you to watch this segment from last night's program explaining what is "really" going on in Ferguson and see if you can manage to understand any of it.
  • Frank Turek says that the Supreme Court cannot possibly find a right to marriage equality in the Constitution because "every person has the same equal right to marry someone of the opposite sex."
  • Bryan Fischer's latest column: "Homosexual Relationships Cannot Satisfy the Purposes of Marriage."
  • Finally, Fox News contributor Stacey Dash and D-list actor Kevin Sorbo need a half-million dollars so they can make a movie about Meriam Ibrahim: "We know that if Hollywood makes this movie then Meriam’s story will be made completely politically correct, Christianity will be watered down, and Sharia Law will be protected." 

Glenn Beck's Prophetic Burden: 'I Don't Want To Be This Guy'

With every passing week, Glenn Beck is more and more convinced that we are on the verge of World War III and that he is the only one who realizes it and so he is spending program after program laying out his prophetic vision about how Russia and ISIS are going to drag the world into a wholesale religious conflagration. 

The details of Beck's theory are too confusing to even bother trying to explain but, in short, he is convinced that ISIS is set on taking over all of Europe, which will allow Vladimir Putin to stir up dormant Christian nationalism that he has planted in Russia and neighboring nations which will allow him to foment resistance and ultimately push ISIS out, thereby guaranteeing Russia's fascist control over the entire region.

After Beck spent an entire segment scrawling an incoherent map on his chalkboard to demonstrate how this will all play out, co-host Stu Burguiere helpfully summed up Beck's convoluted theory as "Russia versus the Caliphate trying to divide up Europe," which prompted Beck to predict that in this coming conflict, the West will side with Russia and fascism.

"You watch. That's what's coming," Beck said. "That's what's coming."

Beck then sat back down at his desk and started once again complaining that he doesn't "want to be this guy" who spends all of this time laying out dire scenarios on his chalkboard, but that is what God has called him to do and so he will continue doing it "because there's nobody else that sees the world the way I see it."

"I don't want to be this guy," he said. "I'm tired of this. I can't tell you how much I want to get away from the damn chalkboard and I don't want to be the guy telling you the bad news. But it's part of my job and it's part of my calling and so I will do it."

If you don't want to buy into Beck's warnings, he said, you are free to ignore him but "there's no reason to call me a kook or anything else."

"I don't want to be this guy," he said, before urging listeners to tune in to this television show tonight where he will lay all of this out in greater detail ... on his chalkboard:

After Beck Threatens To Cancel His Membership, NRA Launches Ethics Investigation Into Grover Norquist

Earlier this week, Glenn Beck announced on his radio program that if anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist was re-elected to the board of the National Rifle Association, Beck would cancel his lifetime membership with the organization.

Beck's threat was rooted in a right-wing conspiracy theory that Norquist is some sort of nefarious front man for the Muslim Brotherhood and consequently is, in Beck's words, "a very bad man."

On his radio program today, Beck announced that he had an hour-long conversation yesterday with the NRA's Wayne LaPierre, who told him that the organization had been receiving hundreds of calls from Beck followers threatening to cancel their memberships if Beck does so, prompting LaPierre to promise Beck that the organization will launch an ethics investigation into Norquist that would "get to the bottom of this once and for all."

"Many of the reasons why we are off on the wrong track now in the Middle East," Beck said, "is because of the influence of Grover Norquist ... This guy is on the wrong side. Whether he knows it or not, I don't believe he's out trying to destroy America, but his efforts and his work will lead to the destruction of America."

Beck said that LaPierre vowed to him that the NRA would conduct a totally "transparent" investigation into Norquist and his work, the results of which will be published on the NRA website for all to see.

The fact that Norquist hasn't voluntarily resigned from the NRA or dropped his bid for re-election amid the allegations, Beck said, "speaks volumes."

"I think that says a lot about his personal character, myself," Beck said:

Glenn Beck Threatens To Cancel His NRA Membership If Grover Norquist Is Re-Elected To Group's Board

For years, Glenn Beck has been a vocal critic of right-wing anti-tax zealot Grover Norquist because he buys into the conspiracy theory that Norquist is a front-man for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Anti-Muslim activist Frank Gaffney has been the leading proponent of the theory that Norquist is a secret Islamist sympathizer and Beck brought him on his radio program today to make his case against allowing Norquist to be re-elected to the board of directors of the National Rifle Association.

Beck is so alarmed by the danger posed by Norquist that he declared that if this "very bad man" is re-elected to the NRA board, he is going to cancel his membership. 

"I will tell you that I am so concerned about this," Beck said, "and I hope that the leadership of the NRA hears this and every member of the NRA hears this, that if this man is elected, or re-elected, and confirmed on the board of the NRA, I may drop my membership in the NRA. I am that concerned that he is a very bad influence and a very bad man that if this is who the NRA decides to put on their board of directors, I don't think I can be associated with them":

Glenn Beck Lays Out The 'Road To World War III'

Glenn Beck hauled out his trusty chalkboard last night so that he could lay out the "road to World War III," which he asserts is going to pit ISIS, which seeks to destroy the "armies of Rome," against Russia, which seeks to establish itself as the "third Roman Empire," in a conflict that will "suck the entire globe into a game-changing series of cataclysmic events."

After falsely claiming that he had accurately predicted the rise of the caliphate and the emergence of fascism/Nazism in Europe, Beck now foresees a global economic crash and depression giving rise to waves of disenchanted youth who will sweep the world into chaos.

Beck warned that by this summer, people will  be issuing a "call to arms" to launch a war against either ISIS or Russia, which will then be followed by a massive global depression occurring sometime after the 2016 election "that will set the youth on fire ... and the road to Hell is paved":

Glenn Beck To GOP Hopefuls: 'I Don't Think You Have A Chance' Of Winning Without Coming On My Show

Last year, Glenn Beck was telling everyone who would listen that he hated politics and was tired of talking about it, so he wasn't going to waste his life anymore and was, instead, going to change his direction completely.

But that was last year.  So far this year, it feels to us as if Beck has spent show after show talking about almost nothing but politics, especially the question of who will be the GOP's presidential nominee in 2016. To that end, Beck's network has started taking a monthly poll of whom Beck's followers want to see win the nomination and today they released the results of second monthly poll, which finds Ted Cruz and Scott Walker taking the top spots.

While discussing the results on his radio show today, Beck noted that lots of the candidates have appeared on his program in the past, with the exception of Walker. Walker's apparent reluctance to come on Beck's show, Beck warned, could spell disaster for Walker's presidential aspirations because "I don't think you have a chance" of winning without doing so.

When Beck asked co-host Stu Burguiere if, were he running for president, he would agree to appear on Beck's show, Burguiere noted that his campaign advisers would probably recommend against it but that, as a co-host of the show, he believes that "if you could get this audience behind you, you have a strong chance."

"I don't think you have a chance without it," Beck responded. "I just don't think you can get the Tea Party to be excited. If you're not going to actually address them where they live - and I'm not just saying our audience, I mean the people like us - if you don't come and court the audience where they live, we won't believe you."

Refusing to appear on Beck's show, he said, "shows something about your courage":

Glenn Beck Says Ben Carson's Prison Sex Comment Is 'The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Heard'

Glenn Beck has been traveling for the past few days and away from his radio studio, meaning that his daily radio program has been audio-only for most of the week.  On today's broadcast, Beck addressed Ben Carson's recent statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice and declared that Carson's possible presidential campaign is now over because his statement was "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

"Goodbye to his presidential career," Beck said. "It's over. It's over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic ... That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement."

"It's not just that he didn't see [the question] coming," Beck continued. "It's that he just thought that was a good answer. That was good enough for him. Just [imagine] I'm at a cocktail party and I'm talking to a friend and they say 'well yeah, you know, you go to prison and you're straight, you get out and you're gay,' don't you look at your friend — I don't care if he's the guy who works at the 7-Eleven and he's not running for president ever — don't you go, 'That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard'?"

Beck: My 'Restoring Honor' Speech Could Have Saved The Nation 'If America Would Have Listened To It'

After comparing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress this morning to the biblical book of Esther, Glenn Beck declared on his radio program today that Netanyahu's speech was the most important one given since the one that Beck delivered at his "Restoring Honor" event on the National Mall back in 2010.

"Have you ever seen a speech that hasn't been given get this much attention?" Beck asked. "The last speech I saw get this much attention before it was given was 8/28."

Beck went on to claim that his 8/28 speech would have changed the course of the world "if America would have listened to it."

Sadly, the nation didn't listen, Beck said, but he knows that he still accomplished God's "desired outcome."

"I do believe it did change the course with many people," Beck said. "It had its desired outcome, I believe, for the Lord":

Paranoia-Rama: Right-Wing's Net Neutrality Meltdown

Conservative pundits are downright furious about the Federal Communications Commission’s decision to preserve net neutrality, ensuring that internet service providers treat all data equally. But their anger seems driven more by reflexive hostility to any proposal that President Obama supports rather than an understanding of the principle behind net neutrality.

Glenn Beck Blasts The 'Morons' And 'Useful Idiots' Who Support Net Neutrality

Almost from the very beginning of the debate over net neutrality, Glenn Beck has vehemently opposed it, mostly because he has no idea what he is talking about, even warning that America "deserves to be destroyed" if the FCC implements regulations designed to ensure open access.

Today, the FCC approved those regulations and Beck is predictably livid, fuming on his radio program today that the people who supported net neutrality are nothing but "morons" and "useful idiots."

"You morons! You useful idiots! That's all you are. You're a useful idiot. Read Joe Stalin. You moron!" Beck bellowed. "You know why it's happening? It's happening because our elite institutions, our education, our higher learning ... bullcrap, not even our higher learning, our entire educational system has failed us and they are churning out morons!"

Glenn Beck Seems To Think That Non-Discrimination Laws Are 'The Work Of Satan'

Outraged that right-wing Christian business owners are facing the possibility of fines for refusing to serve gay customers rather than being allowed to freely discriminate in the name of religious freedom, Glenn Beck said on his radio show today that not allowing Christians to engage in discrimination is "the work of Satan."

"I can't change my religious point of view. I can't. Especially by force. I won't by force," Beck said, before declaring that "the Left just doesn't understand religion at all," which is why liberals refuse to admit that radical Islamic terrorism is rooted in religion and won't honor the right of Christians in America to engage in anti-gay discrimination.

"They want to shut Christians down," he said. "What is this, except the work of Satan?"

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/20/15

Beck: Obama Is Incapable Of Having A 'Deep, Stirring Love' Of America

Glenn Beck kicked off today's radio broadcast by not only defending Rudy Giuliani's recent statement that President Obama doesn't love America, but taking it a step further by declaring that Obama is fundamentally incapable of loving America, at least in the same way that real Americans like Glenn Beck love this country.

"I differ from Rudy Giuliani," Beck said. "I don't think that [Obama] can love America the way we love America because of his upbringing ... I don't think he loves America. I think he likes America."

Beck went on to argue that Obama loves America in the same way that Beck "loves" Great Britain, by which he meant that while he likes Great Britain, he does not "have that deep, stirring love" for it that he does for America.

"I have a deep love for the heritage of this nation," Beck said. "This president doesn't have that deep love of the heritage of our nation":

'This Is The Beginning Of Sorrows': Glenn Beck Declares That WWIII Has Already Begun

Earlier this week, Glenn Beck prophesied that that fight against ISIS was soon going to explode into World War III and now, it seems, that time has arrived as he declared on his radio program today that the entire world is already locked in a massive global war for its very survival, even if Beck is the only one with enough foresight to recognize it.

Despite the fact that his current theory about WWIII contradicts his last theory about WWIII, Beck has "a growing sense of surety" that the world has now entered "the beginning of sorrows."

"We are in World War III," Beck said. "It just hasn't caught up yet. We're here!"

"I told you last year, 'And so it begins,'" he continued. "I have a growing sense of surety that what I believe is here, is indeed here ... We are indeed setting the stage for global war and this is beginning of sorrows ... This is the beginning of sorrows. I'm telling you, we don't understand what is coming yet. We don't see."

"The gloves are about to come off on the entire world," Beck warned. "God help us, we may see nuclear impacts on the face of the earth in our lifetime ... The gloves are about to come off and this is the beginning of sorrows":

Beck: America 'Deserves To Be Destroyed' If It Preserves Net Neutrality

Glenn Beck's misguided opposition to net neutrality is well known and despite his record of being wrong about nearly everything, he spent a good portion of today's radio program warning that if the principle of net neutrality is preserved, voices such as his will eventually be silenced and declaring that America deserves to be destroyed if is so stupid as to allow it to happen.

Nobody trusts the government or Big Business, Beck marveled, "and yet you're giving Big Business and government more latitude! What are you, insane?"

"We deserve to be wiped out," he concluded. "We deserve to be wiped out. If you're this stupid, America, you deserve and somebody else is going to have to rise up and free you. It's what's going to happen."

"This wipes out our voice," Beck continued. "I'm telling you, the voices like ours will be gone. I promise you that."

Just how positive is Beck that this will absolutely happen?

"I am as convinced of this as I was of the Caliphate," he said:

Beck: People Know We're On The Verge Of WWIII, Which Is Why 'The Walking Dead' Is So Popular

Back in August of 2013, Glenn Beck explained that everything that was going on it the world at the time was simply a proxy war between the United States and Russia and predicted that, within a year, the conflict would break out into an "openly hot war" that would signal the start of World War III.

Needless to say, that did not happen, yet Beck continues to declare that "all of these things I predicted and warned of" are now coming true, only now he is convinced that the war against ISIS is what will bring about WWIII.

Citing the recent beheading of 21 Coptic Christians, as well as the attack carried out in Copenhagen over the weekend, Beck used his television program last night to deliver a "wake-up call" that "we are now in the early stages of World War III" ... and that is why the show "The Walking Dead" is so popular.

"I think that we all know that the world is about to come undone," Beck theorized. "We all know, there is something in us that tells us the world is out of control but I don't want to watch that ... and so why are we watching 'The Walking Dead'? We're watching 'The Walking Dead' because we know the zombies aren't real. And so it allows us to connect with what we're really feeling but allows us to be in a safe zone because we know zombies aren't real. Zombies are ISIS. Zombies is our economic peril. The rest of the show is what we say is coming":

On his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck recounted how, when his daughter was off at college, she was essentially brainwashed into believing that people like him hated gays. That was absurd, he told her, because just look at "how many homosexual friends we have, how many homosexual employees we have" as he assured her that "we have no problem" with gay people.  The reason he opposes gay marriage, he explained to her, is because gay activists only want it so that they can use it to force Christians to violate their faith, just like during the time of Sodom and...
