Glenn Beck: Rick Perry prayed for end to Texas drought — and God answered with devastating floods

Published

on

Glenn Beck says former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is responsible for flooding that has killed 27 people in the state – but he apparently thinks that’s a good thing.

The conservative broadcaster said the devastating floods were God’s answer to Perry’s 2011 prayer proclamation to end a prolonged drought in Texas, reported Right Wing Watch.

“We started digging our way out of that drought about three years ago, but that’s definitely over,” Beck said, agreeing with co-host Stu Burguiere that climate change could not have caused both the drought and the floods.

He recently returned from vacation at his ranch in Idaho, where he said it had rained nearly every day after local residents took part in a fast for rain.

“Five weeks ago, they had a fast for rain because they were in a drought – and it started raining five weeks ago,” Beck said.

Burguiere said that was an interesting observation, and he noted Perry had prayed for rain several years ago.

“Will he get blamed for the success of the rain and the flooding?” Burguiere asked.

Beck said the former governor, who is mulling another presidential run, should get credit for ending the drought.

“We started ending that drought with that fast, do you remember that?” Beck said. “He was mocked for it and he went ahead and did it and that was the beginning of the end of the drought. We started having rain right after that, and this state was a desert.”

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

on

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
