Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Peter King vs Ted Cruz

Rep. Peter King is a political bomb-throwing blowhard, but almost entirely on foreign policy. On domestic issues, he’s shown some willingness to be reasonable. And boy, does he not like Ted Cruz, who is also a political bomb-thrower. He says if Cruz wins the Republican nomination, he’ll jump off a bridge.

Beck: 30% of Founding Documents Come From Deuteronomy

Glenn Beck and David Barton have long been BFFs and Beck routinely repeats Barton’s lies on his show. He never presents any evidence for them, of course, because there is no evidence.

‘Prophet’ Gives Beck a Mantle From God

Chuck Pierce, one of the top leaders of the New Apostolic Reformation and a self-declared “prophet,” got a visit at his church over the weekend from Glenn Beck. Naturally, he declared Beck to be a prophet as well and gave him a “mantle” that could be “used to spread a new fire in this land.” Then he took to Facebook to explain why he would do so for a Mormon heretic.
