Stephen Moore, a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation who was formerly the conservative organization’s chief economist, told radio host Janet Mefferd last week that the “dingbat” idea of climate change is “one of the greatest propaganda campaigns in world history.” He told Mefferd: … I have to tip my hat to the left, this has been one of the greatest propaganda campaigns in world history that the left has pulled off. I mean, they’ve taken this dingbat idea of global climate change and they’ve put it in the schools, they’ve put it... MORE

Back in 2011, when Mitt Romney was in the starting months of his presidential campaign, he accepted an invitation to speak at the Values Voter Summit, an annual event organized by the Family Research Council. The VVS always attracts an assortment of far-right activists, but that year Romney was scheduled to speak directly before Bryan Fischer, an inflamatory American Family Association official and radio host who had viciously insulted everyone from LGBT people to women to Muslims to Native Americans to medal of honor recipients to Romney’s fellow Mormons. After facing a public outcry... MORE

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, has endorsed his fellow Texas Republican Ted Cruz’s bid for the presidency, but he had some words of admiration for Donald Trump in an interview today with “Breitbart News Daily,” saying that the GOP frontrunner has “taken on political correctness” and “even the pope, for heaven’s sakes.” Gohmert warned that “at some point” Trump’s attacks on the pope and others will become an “Achilles’ heel,” but the congressman took the opportunity to criticize the pope for believing in climate...

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., a vocal climate science denialist, criticized President Obama’s participation in a Paris summit to address climate change yesterday, saying that climate science ignores the role of God in determining global temperatures. Inhofe told Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on his “Washington Watch” program that Americans simply don’t care about the issue anymore and that there is nothing the U.S. government can do to reduce carbon dioxide emissions anyway. “I know there are some out there, probably a couple hundred people, who...

Dismissing the threat of climate change yesterday, Sen. Jeff Sessions declared that no devastating hurricanes have hit the U.S. since Hurricane Katrina, “thank the Lord.” The Alabama Republican appears to have forgotten events such as Superstorm Sandy, the 2012 hurricane that resulted in 285 deaths, and Hurricane Ike, which left 195 people dead, including at least 112 Americans, in 2008. After Katrina, Sandy and Ike were the second and third costliest storms, respectively, in U.S. history. Sessions made his remarks on “Washington Watch,” the program hosted by Family... MORE

Glenn Beck dedicated a portion of his television program last night to the remainder of his one-on-one interview with Sen. Ted Cruz, in which the GOP presidential hopeful declared that those who believe in climate change do not bother to cite facts in support of their position because, for them, it is a religion. Pointing to a recent congressional hearing in which he grilled the president of the Sierra Club about the supposed lack of data and evidence for the existence of global warming, Cruz told Beck that "climate change is not science, it's religion." "Look at the... MORE

In an interview yesterday on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., railed against Pope Francis and other Christian leaders who have addressed the human influence on climate change. Inhofe told FRC President Tony Perkins that the pope’s recent encyclical on climate science will encourage other Christian leaders to come “out of the closet” to “tell the truth” about climate change. Of course, “the truth,” according to Inhofe, is that climate change is a myth: “The science is still out... MORE
