David Barton: If You Tithe, God Will Bless You With A Car That Goes 200,000 Miles

On a recent episode of his "Foundation of Freedom" series, David Barton explained to Glenn Beck how, if Christians tithe properly, they will find themselves being rewarded by God with cars that don't break down as often and clothing that will last longer before wearing out.

"Everybody is supposed to pay their 10 percent to God," Barton stated. "And we don't pay that because God needs it, Deuteronomy says you're to pay the tithe, you do that to learn to be Me first. God says the reason you pay the tithe is so that you learn to put Me at the top of what you do."

"I love the example with Cain and Abel," he continued, "he said that Abel brought the first fruits of the flocks and God was pleased with that. It said that Cain, in the course of time, brought the crops to God and God wasn't pleased with what Cain did. So when you do it first thing off of the top, God can really bless that. And I've seen that. We both tithe, we know the benefits of that, suddenly your cars go 200,000 miles rather than 80,000 miles, your clothes don't wear out as fast. It's what the Bible says, [the Israelites] went for 40 years and their sandals never wore out."

Donald Trump's Campaign Manager Charged With Battery

A Florida police department has charged Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, with battery after an incident in which Lewandowski allegedly grabbed Michelle Fields, then a reporter for the conservative site Breitbart, at a campaign event.

Video footage and eyewitness accounts confirmed that Lewandowski had grabbed Fields, leaving her bruised, but Trump’s campaign and the managerial staff at Breitbart sided with Lewandowski.

After Fields and other Breitbart reporters quit due to the site’s handling of the matter, Breitbart then sent them cease and desist letters telling them not to speak out and published a story attacking Fields and another writer who left.

Trump said Fields “made the story up” and Lewandowski tweeted at Fields that she is “totally delusional.”

Lewandowski also tweeted out a sexist article from right-wing smear artist Charles C. Johnson.

Oddly, Trump has rarely been questioned about the incident by media and, in the midst of the controversy, Trump lavished praise on Lewandowski.

Hopefully now someone will ask Trump why he is standing behind Lewandowski.

Mat Staver: The Fight To Reverse Marriage Equality 'Will Never Be Over'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver declared that the fight against gay marriage will never end because marriage equality is a direct assault on God.

After praising Florida Gov. Rick Scott for signing the "Pastor Protection Act," which shields churches and pastors from being sued for refusing to perform same-sex marriages (something they were already allowed to do), Staver declared that such laws need to be passed all over the country because the fight to undo marriage equality will never stop.

"This issue of marriage," he said, "this attempted redefinition of marriage, some have said, 'Well, it's over with, the Supreme Court has decided, let's move on;' even some presidential candidates, past and present, have made that kind of a statement. What they don't realize is this is not over, it will never be over and there will never be churches, pastors and people of Christian faith and values who will accept this. Period."

"I think that we can ultimately reverse this trend as well," Staver continued. "Pendulums swing and I believe that if you remain faithful, you will ultimately be encouraged by being on the right side of history. People say, 'Well, you're on the wrong side of history.' I would rather be on the side of God's history and the natural created order, millennia of human history than some newfangled idea. This is an assault on marriage and family, our freedom and an assault on God himself."

Trump: No One Has Ever Been 'Slandered' More Than Me!

In an interview earlier today with far-right radio host Michael Savage, Donald Trump claimed that he has been “slandered” by the news coverage of his most recent feud with Sen. Ted Cruz.

The two leading GOP presidential candidates have been embroiled for nearly a week in an escalating feud surrounding Trump’s attacks on Cruz’s wife and a National Enquirer story alleging that Cruz has had several extramarital affairs, which the Cruz camp has claimed was placed by Trump confidants.

“It wasn’t me and Cruz ought to focus on other things, frankly, because I think it’s disgusting when he blames me,” Trump said. “Somebody in your world called me and said they had never seen anybody slandered like I’ve been slandered over the last week about the whole woman thing. Nobody respects women more than I do.”

“He started it, but I think it’s total garbage,” he later added. Savage, meanwhile, said that Hillary Clinton’s campaign likely “leaked” the story about Cruz’s purported affairs to Marco Rubio’s aides and “Little Marco’s people could’ve leaked it to turn you against each other.”

Trump, utterly incapable of staying on one subject for more than 20 seconds, quickly turned the conversation to his recent criticism of NATO and his view that the U.S. has been “undefeating” ISIS.

Trump said that he has several plans to go after ISIS but won’t reveal them in order to protect “the element of surprise.” However, he did reveal that under a Trump presidency the U.S. would “take the oil” in Libya and “make the rules” in the Geneva Convention “a lot tougher,” alleging that ISIS terrorists “are laughing at us” because the U.S. won’t torture.

He went on to hail the NYPD’s since-abandoned Muslim spying program as “the best in the world,” despite the fact that the program, according to the Associated Press, “never generated a lead or triggered a terrorism investigation.”

Fox News Host Brian Kilmeade To Raise Money For Anti-Feminist Eagle Forum

Brian Kilmeade, the co-host of the Fox News program “Fox & Friends,” will be the featured speaker at two Eagle Forum PAC fundraisers in Pennsylvania this summer, helping the conservative group raise money to support congressional candidates in the state.

Eagle Forum is notorious for its virulent opposition to immigration, vaccinations, LGBT rights and, most importantly, feminism.

The group’s founder, Phyllis Schlafly, has even gone so far as to blame women for sexual assaults, praise the pay gap, and deny the fact that marital rape exists.

We wonder if Kilmeade will share with Eagle Forum activists some of his past remarks about women:

Bryan Fischer: Obama Admires And Envies Dictators And Wishes He Could Be One

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer asserted that "President Obama is a guy that envies dictators" and wishes that he could be one.

Fischer was discussing Obama's recent trip to Cuba, which he said left the president wishing that he could wield total control over this nation in the way that foreign communist and socialist dictators control their countries.

"I've always thought that President Obama envies dictators," Fischer stated, "wishes he could be one, envies their power; they don't have to answer to anybody, they can do whatever they want, they can impose their will as policy over an entire nation. And Obama loves that, he envies that, he looks up to them, he admires them because of the kind of power that they have, he wishes he could be one of them, he wants to belong to their club. That is why he is so fawning, he admires them, he respects them, he wants to be them. That is what he always has such a fawning presence when he is with them."

Tucker Carlson: Anyone Who Points Out White Privilege 'Is By Definition A Racist'

Last week, Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson chatted with bizarre conspiracy theorist Alex Jones about the media’s coverage of race and LGBT issues in the 2016 election.

“Anyone who alleges the white privilege is, by definition, a racist,” Carlson said. “I think we can say that and we should say that. That’s not a legitimate form of conversation. That’s tarring an entire group based on the way they look. That’s the definition of racism and I think people should stand up and say that because it’s true.”

Carlson also took issue with Hillary Clinton’s call to allow undocumented immigrants to purchase health insurance plans, but without subsidies, on Obamacare exchanges, saying that it proves that President Obama lied when he said undocumented immigrants were not eligible to participate in the marketplaces. Of course, this proves the opposite of Carlson’s point, seeing that Clinton wants to change the existing prohibition.

But that didn’t stop him from claiming that Rep. Joe Wilson, who shouted “you lie” when President Obama spoke about the issue to Congress, was completely vindicated. “Joe Wilson was right,” he said. “They did lie, they’ve pulled off the masking and they’re admitting that they want to give federal benefits to [unlawful immigrants].” Jones then insisted that the health care law instituted “death panels.”

Carlson went on to laughably claim that conservatives like himself were initially very welcoming of an Obama presidency because it would create racial unity, only to find out that “he has been the most racially, explicitly and intentionally, racially divisive president that we’ve ever had by a factor of I don’t know how much.” 

The conversation then turned to trans issues, with Carlson blasting liberals for supporting trans rights and embracing “anything that is perverse or unattractive or unhealthy or mean or against normal people.”

Carlson’s Skype connection broke up while Jones was ranting about how we have “become planet tranny,” which of course led Jones to suspect that something sinister was afoot. “I guess you say ‘planet tranny’ and the Skype breaks up,” he said. “You’re not allowed to say that.”

Bad News For Republicans Hoping For A Platform Less Hostile To LGBT Equality

The platform approved at the Republican National Convention in 2012 was, we said at the time, “a far-right fever dream, a compilation of pouting, posturing, and policies to meet just about every demand from the overlapping Religious Right, Tea Party, corporate, and neo-conservative wings of the GOP.” Every attempt at moderating language — whether on equality for LGBT people or the right of D.C. residents to congressional representation — was shot down by the far-right activists on the party’s platform committee.

At the convention that year, supporters of the LGBT-friendly Log Cabin Republicans vowed that things were changing, and that never again would the Republican platform include anti-equality language about “preserving and protecting traditional marriage” as “a union of one man and one woman” that “must be upheld as the national standard.” A group called Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry launched a million-dollar “Reform the Platform” campaign, which has since been absorbed by American Unity Fund, a pro-marriage-equality group affiliated with hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer, a major Republican Party donor.

But the road to a more gay-friendly Republican platform is going to be a rocky one. Earlier this month, the Louisiana Republican Party chose its two delegates to the platform committee: stridently anti-gay Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and Sandy McDade, political chairman of Eagle Forum, which “adamantly opposes” marriage equality.

Four years ago, FRC and Eagle Forum teamed up to make anti-equality language in the platform even stronger. Perkins bragged at the time:

With a presence in the committee meetings, the FRC Action staff has been able to help delegates hold the line of social issues.

Just this morning, our efforts made what was already a good document even better. Before this week, the GOP’s draft platform included solid language defending the family – and FRC Action, in tandem with Eagle Forum, made it even stronger.

In a press release celebrating his re-selection to the platform committee this month, Perkins again boasted about the role he had in shaping 2012’s anti-gay platform:

In 2012, my role as a delegate gave me the opportunity to play a key role in amending the marriage plank, which led to the committee approving a much stronger version than 2008's. We also tightened language on obscenity and pornography, protected conscience rights, explained how abortion hurts women, and supported the Second Amendment in D.C.

Both Perkins and McDade are backing Ted Cruz, even though Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly is in the Trump camp. Perkins is a member of Cruz’s Religious Liberty Advisory Council, which suggests that he’ll also be pushing for anti-gay platform language under the banner of religious liberty.

Glenn Beck Doesn't Believe Affair Allegations Because Ted Cruz Has Been Preparing His Entire Life To Be President

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck explained why he doesn't believe the recent National Enquirer story alleging that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has engaged in multiple extramarital affairs.

Among the various reasons why Beck is giving no credence to the story is the fact that Cruz has been raised from birth and been driven his entire life to become president and so he's not stupid enough to throw is all away in this reckless manner.

"This guy is driven," Beck said. "The first time I met his father, I said to him, 'He is going to get into the Senate and he's going to be exactly what he says he's going to be.' This was before he went into the Senate. And he [Cruz's father] said, 'Oh yes, I will kick his ass.' I've told that story a million times. What I haven't said is that at that point, we talked about him being president and I said, 'If he goes into the Senate and he does the right thing, he could be president.' His father said to me, 'I know.'"

"Ted has known that he could be the president from the beginning," Beck continued, noting that Cruz has been preparing for this moment his entire life. "You are not as driven as he is, you are not as smart as he is and then go in for your last four years before you're going to run for president, you don't get to 2012 and be thinking I'm going to run for president and think you can get away with that."

Larry Pratt: Liberals Have 'Plans To Enslave An Entire Nation'

Former Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman and gun activist Larry Pratt joined conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles on his “Trunews” radio program last week to talk about how totalitarian socialists are in the process of overthrowing the U.S. government with what Pratt called “plans to enslave an entire nation.”

Wiles asked Pratt and Stockman about the planned Democracy Spring events in April, when activists intend to use civil disobedience to demand that lawmakers “take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in our politics and ensure free and fair elections.”

Stockman said that Democracy Spring is actually about introducing socialism to America. “I think it’s a threat to our national security and I think it’s a threat to our nation’s survival,” he said. Pratt agreed that Democracy Spring is a socialist movement to “take over” the country, insisting that members of the media “don’t want to talk about plans to overthrow a government, they don’t want to talk about plans to enslave an entire nation and yet it happens before our very eyes.”

Wiles then seemed to confuse César Chávez with Hugo Chávez, incorrectly alleging that the late Venezuelan leader rather than the famous labor activist coined the “Yes We Can” phrase that President Obama used in his 2008 campaign. “Every communist in America in 2008 knew precisely what Barack Obama was saying to them every time he said ‘Yes we can,’” he said.

The Judicial Crisis Network Conveniently Forgets Its Own History

It has been truly remarkable watching the Judicial Crisis Network criss-crossing the country pressuring Republican senators to keep up their blockade of President Obama’s Supreme Court nomination, since during the George W. Bush administration the group was named the Judicial Confirmation Network and promoted the idea that every judicial nominee “deserves an up-or-down vote.”

JCN’s current leaders have been carefully ignoring this history in their effort to prevent the Senate Judiciary Committee from even holding a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, a situation that reached new heights of absurdity last week when the group’s general counsel, Carrie Severino, let a conservative radio host speculate at length, incorrectly, about why the group might have been named the “Judicial Crisis Network” during the Bush administration.

“Here’s what’s interesting, is you were interestingly named the Judicial Crisis Network” during the Bush administration, radio host Bobby Gunther Walsh mistakenly said during a March 24 interview with Severino.

“It’s interesting you chose that name,” he said, “I don’t know if there was a crisis going on back then, is that when they were threatening Bush about ‘you can’t nominate someone’?”

After repeating misleading claims about Sen. Charles Schumer and then-Sen. Joe Biden’s comments about Supreme Court nominations during the Bush years, Walsh fumed, “You know what I can’t stand is when people can’t even admit that they said stuff and they can’t even admit the truth.”

Severino, rather than correcting Walsh about her organization’s past as the Judicial Confirmation Network, instead complained about people who “repeat the same false facts” until “people take them as true”: “Yeah, you’re entitled to your own opinion but not to your own facts. If you repeat the same false facts over and over again, sometimes people take them as true, so it’s frustrating.”

“It’s the irony that you can just see the Democrats are willing to say and do whatever it takes to get this fifth vote that they just desperately want a solid liberal block on the court,” she added. “And they’re going to want to deny the people a voice in the process in order to do that. That’s a real shame.”

As we all know, the Judicial Crisis Network would never “repeat false facts”!

For A Third Time, Janet Porter Claims Her Prayers 'Changed The Results' Of The 2000 Election

During a campaign stop for her ill-fated run for a seat in the Ohio state legislature last month, right-wing activist Janet Porter insisted, for a third time, that her prayers flipped the results of the 2000 presidential election and handed the presidency to George W. Bush.

Porter explained that she had faith in God that her campaign for office could succeed because she had seen God work miracles before, like when He reversed the results in Florida in response to her prayers.

"2000 election. It was Al Gore vs. George W. Bush," she stated. "I was in Broward County, Florida, at the time and I prayed a ridiculous prayer. Did you ever pray a sun-stopping prayer?"

"I was part of the recount team in 2000 and on election night, they declared the election for Al Gore," she explained. "I got down on my knees — Right Wing Watch says that I'm the one responsible, but there were a lot of people who prayed — but I got on my knees and I said, 'God, I'm asking for something that has never been done before, I'm asking you' — it's ridiculous, it sounded ridiculous, it was hard to even form in my mouth, but I said, 'God I'm asking you to change the results of this election.' That's what I prayed. And God changed the results of that election."

Pat Robertson: 'These NFL Players Are Not Going To Get Same-Sex Marriage'

Pat Robertson took issue today with the NFL’s opposition to an anti-LGBT bill in Georgia, arguing that the league shouldn’t care about the bill, which would effectively legalize anti-LGBT discrimination, since none of its players are gay.

“These guys are supposed to be tough warriors in the NFL,” Robertson said. “Why are they suddenly going out to boycott a state because of some alleged offense against homosexual marriage? These NFL players are not going to get same-sex marriage, you wouldn’t think. What is going on with those people?”

He lamented that “we are making a protected class of somebody that, you know, for centuries have been on the edges of society, and now suddenly it has become the big deal.”

Georgia’s Republican governor announced this morning that he will veto the legislation.

One of the bill’s supporters, state Sen. Greg Kirk, told Robertson’s news network that religious liberty won’t exist in Georgia unless this bill is signed into law.

He also claimed that “in the other twenty-one countries that have passed same-sex laws, it has squelched the First Amendment rights of many of those citizens.”

Trump: 'I Have Been Better To Women Than Any Of These Candidates'

Earlier today, Donald Trump spoke with conservative Wisconsin radio host Charlie Sykes about his recent attacks on Ted Cruz’s wife, which Sykes told the GOP presidential frontrunner made him seem like “a 12-year-old bully” rather than a serious candidate.

Last week, Trump retweeted an unflattering photo of the Texas senator’s wife, Heidi, and threatened to “spill the beans” on her past.

Trump told Sykes he only targeted Heidi Cruz because of a racy ad put out by a Super PAC unaffiliated with Cruz’s campaign that featured a photo Trump’s wife, Melania, posing partially nude in GQ magazine.

“Ted Cruz knew totally about it,” he said.

After Sykes said Trump is acting like a “twelve-year-old bully on the playground, not somebody who wants the office held by Abraham Lincoln, Trump responded that he simply "did a retweet.” “I’m sure she’s excellent, I just don’t know her,” he went on to say of Heidi Cruz.

Sykes then played part of an ad that features women reading insulting remarks that Trump has made about women.

Trump responded by saying that he said those things when he didn’t know he’d be running for office.

“If Megyn Kelly were a man, I would be saying the exact same things about Megyn Kelly, and the same things with Rosie O’Donnell,” he said. “I don’t think there should be a double standard if somebody’s a woman. I have been better to women than any of these candidates, frankly.” Of course, it is unlikely that Trump would have called a man a “fat pig” or joked about his menstrual cycle.

After deflecting questions about the more liberal stances he has held in the past, insisting that he only held them in order to make business deals, Trump continued to demand that Cruz apologize to him for the Super PAC ad he was not involved in creating.

“He owes me an apology because what he did was wrong,” he said. “And there are some people who say that his group bought the copyright to the picture from GQ magazine.” Trump frequently uses the “some people say” line to get out of making substantiated statements.

“We’re not on the playground, we’re running for president of the United States,” Sykes responded.

Rafael Cruz: 'One More Liberal Justice' Could Allow A Dictator To Turn Guns On Americans

Rafael Cruz, the father and top campaign surrogate of Sen. Ted Cruz, warned in a radio interview today that if “one more liberal justice” is confirmed to the Supreme Court, “we will lose our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” which could lead to a dictator turning guns against the American people.

“One more liberal justice with that way of thinking and we will lose our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” Cruz said on Breitbart’s SiriusXM program. “And think back in history: Every dictator that has taken the guns away from the population has used them against the population.”

“It is imperative that we elect as president someone that you can be certain that will only nominate to the Supreme Court justices that are committed to following the Constitution and the rule of law, not to legislate from the bench,” he said. “Otherwise, if we lose the court, it may take a whole generation to recover it and I don’t think we have the time.”

Cruz issued a similar warning in November, before the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, saying that “praise God there are 300 million guns in American in the hands of private citizens.”

Cruz also repeated his claim that the American public education system is being used by communists to indoctrinate children into “an anti-Christian worldview.”

“What has happened in America is that we have believed this lie of separation of church and state, which is not in the Constitution, is not in the Declaration,” Cruz said. “The total opposite is true. One of the very first Bibles printed in America was printed under the auspices of Congress to be the principal textbook in high schools, primary schools and universities.”

Cruz frequently uses the story about Congress printing Bibles to be used as textbooks in his attempts to refute the idea of church-state separation. The story, unsurprisingly, is a myth promoted by Cruz’s friend, the political operative David Barton, who is running a super PAC backing Ted Cruz’s candidacy.

He went on to say that this all changed when the Humanist Manifesto, an “ominous document,” was signed in 1933, leading to “immorality and chaos and secular humanism.” He then repeated his claim that John Dewey, the public education reformer and signer of the Humanist Manifesto “was a member of the American Communist Party.” (Dewey was in fact an “avowed anti-Communist.”)

All of this, he said, has led to the Common Core educational standards “brainwashing” public school students with an “anti-Christian worldview in an attempt to secularize America.”

“So, since 1933, those concepts of secular humanism have been immersed in our public school system,” he said, “and now, with Common Core, they have been elevated to a new level. And Common Core is not really about standards, it’s about brainwashing our kids with secular humanism, with an anti-Christian worldview, with what’s called situational ethics … And so what has happened is that kids are being brainwashed with this worldview that is an anti-Christian worldview in an attempt to secularize America.”

Ron Johnson Is Taking His SCOTUS Talking Points Straight From Right-Wing Groups

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is one of the Republican senators who is under considerable pressure in his home state to break from his party leadership and consider the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.

So far, Johnson has toed the party line and says that he supports blocking any nominee to the Supreme Court for the remainder of Obama’s presidency. In defending this position, he has turned to a number of stock talking points cooked up by right-wing groups seeking to keep an Obama nominee off the Supreme Court.

As soon as President Obama announced his nomination of Garland, Johnson turned to the talking point that the conservative Judicial Crisis Network has been promoting since soon after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death left a vacant seat on the Supreme Court.

Johnson’s appeal to let the American people “decide” and give them a “voice” by discounting President Obama’s entire last year in office, comes straight out of the messaging that JCN started hammering in early ads urging obstruction. In JCN’s first ad, a narrator says:

It’s ‘We the People.’ Sometimes the politicians forget that. The Supreme Court has a vacancy and your vote in November is your only voice. Sen. Chuck Grassley agrees: the American people should decide. This isn’t about Republicans or Democrats. It’s about your voice. You choose the next president, the next president chooses the next justice. Call Sen. Chuck Grassley. Thank him for letting the people decide.

Of course, the people already did have a voice in choosing who would pick the next Supreme Court justice when they reelected President Obama for a second four-year term in 2012.

The New York Times reported yesterday on an event in Wisconsin at which Johnson attempted to justify the Senate GOP’s obstructionism by implying that the Constitution’s requirement of “advice and consent” can mean the Senate advising the president not to make any judicial nomination at all:

“Yeah, I am hearing the drumbeat, ‘Do your job! Do your job!’ ” Mr. Johnson said, invoking the Democrats’ battle cry in their quest to get Judge Garland a hearing. “We’re doing our job,” Mr. Johnson declared, to shouts of “yes.”

“Our job as a coequal branch in the nomination process is advise and consent,” he said. “Well, President Obama — surprise — didn’t heed our advice. So now we are doing the second part of that advice and consent: We’re withholding our consent. Completely appropriate.”

This is a talking point that Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, a longtime right-wing player in judicial fights, pioneered very soon after the death of Justice Scalia, when he told televangelist Pat Robertson, “The Senate has a role in this, the Constitution says ‘advice and consent.’ The advice here is, ‘Don’t put up a nominee when you’re only going to be the president, you’re a lame duck and you’re only going to be the president for 11 months.’”

We don’t think that refusing to even consider a Supreme Court nominee is what the founders had in mind when they gave the Senate the power of “advice and consent," which is why the GOP leadership’s decision to have the Senate do absolutely nothing in response to a Supreme Court nomination is unprecedented.

According to the Times article, Johnson has also taken to saying that Garland is “hostile” to the Second Amendment:

“Judge Merrick is hostile to your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” Mr. Johnson said in Pewaukee, using the judge’s first name. “So I am doing my job to protect the Second Amendment rights of Wisconsinites.”

Johnson’s use of the word “hostile” is no accident. The phrase “hostile to the Second Amendment” is what right-wing groups have settled on to describe Garland’s utterly benign record on gun rights. That’s the exact phrase that the National Rifle Association has been using in its effort to stir up opposition to Garland’s nomination. The “hostile” term seems to have come from an opposition research package put together by the Judicial Crisis Network, which in turn seems to have borrowed the phrase from a 2007 article in the NRA’s magazine.

We outlined last week why the Second Amendment “hostility” argument is bunk.

Senate Republicans seem to have ceded not only their governing, but the very words that come out of their mouths, to right-wing obstructionist groups.

Alex Jones Proves Obama Is Demonic: A Fly Once Landed On Him

While he may be losing his church, anti-gay pastor James David Manning still found time to chat with Alex Jones yesterday, and the two agreed that President Obama is a spiritually evil man who, according to Jones, is “almost like a vampire” and “will never been seen with a cross around him.” Never. Ever.

Manning said that if he were to ever encounter Obama, he would “flash him with my cross.”

“Well, I’ve talked to people about how the flies are always landing on him,” Jones said, claiming that “prominent” people have told him that “there’s something really evil about Obama when you’re in his presence.”

Right-wing outlets such as “Trunews” and “WorldNetDaily” have also pointed to the fact that a fly once landed on Obama, an occurrence that only happens to evil people, as proof that Obama is demonic.

Paranoia-Rama: Ted Cruz's Radical Advisers, Televangelist Scare Tactics & Glenn Beck's Latest Prophesy

For those of us not fleeing America if Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election, conservative pundits believe there is not much to look forward to, warning of an impending economic disaster, massacres of Christians and leftist-Islamist insurrections.

Glenn Beck: Ted Cruz Is Divinely Anointed And Has Been 'Raised From Birth' To Save This Nation

Glenn Beck dedicated an entire segment of his radio program today to responding to a Breitbart article criticizing him for telling Mormons while campaigning for Ted Cruz in Utah recently that they must rise up and save this nation because evangelical Christians in the South "are not listening to their God."

Beck took issue with a comment from Baylor professor Thomas Kidd, who said that while "there are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump ... God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative."

God has, in fact, revealed Cruz to be His divinely anointed choice, Beck insisted.

"To you, Dr. Kidd. To you," Beck responded. "To you God hasn’t revealed Cruz as divinely anointed. I understand that. And I respect your opinion on it. But here’s mine: I have seen this man’s life. I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time. Would there not be someone that was in the pool that might have the right qualifications for God? Is He that disinterested in all of us? Or is it perhaps possible that just like in the Bible, people were raised from birth for a specific time? Are we that inconsequential, Dr. Kidd? Are we really not that important enough for Him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?"

Cruz Backer Bryan Fischer Calls For Ban On Mosques To 'De-Islamize' America

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, long a font of anti-Muslim bile and other bigotry, has posted a call to “de-Islamize” America.

Fischer’s “de-Islamization” program has three planks, one of which has already been promoted by GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump:

  1. Immediately suspend immigration by Muslims. Fischer says that “unvetted, untrammeled immigration of Muslims to the U.S. is a form of insanity.” Islam, he says, “is the Ebola virus of culture.” He says, “Preventing carriers of this cultural virus from entering America is simply common sense…”
  2. No More Mosques. Fischer says there is no constitutional problem with state governments banning mosques “if we use the Constitution given to us by the Founders and not the one mangled by the courts.” Fischer argues that the First Amendment’s establishment clause does not apply to the states, which he says “have unilateral authority to regulate religious expression within their borders.” In other words, he would see no constitutional barrier to Texas, for example, allowing only Baptists to worship openly.
  3. No more Muslims in the military. Fischer says Congress can and should bar Muslims from service in the armed forces.

Earlier this month, Fischer was scheduled to participate in a campaign rally with presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The Cruz campaign ended up canceling his visit to Mississippi, saying the candidate did not feel well.

There’s no reason to think, however, that Fischer’s most recent anti-Muslim comments will threaten his standing with the Cruz campaign, which recently named Frank Gaffney, one of the country’s most vitriolic anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists, to Cruz’s national security advisory team. Cruz himself, in his response to recent terrorist bombings in Brussels, called for empowering law enforcement “to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized.”
