We do not have a “national historian,” but E.W. Jackson, failed candidate for Lt.

Fake historian and professional liar David Barton joined forces with his publisher, Brad Cummings, on the Jim Bakker Show, where Cummings talked about a dream right wing conspiracy crackpot Rick Joyner had foreseeing a second American revolution.

Professional liar and fake historian David Barton has an extremely reactionary view of the limits of the Second Amendment. In short: There are no limits. The amendment allows people to own any weapon the government has, including tanks, missiles and fighter jets.

You gotta hand it to professional liar David Barton, the man has some chutzpah.

I know the world seems like a strange place with Trump in charge, but some things remain the same.

The key to a long career is versatility and that is no less true of David Barton’s chosen career, which is professional liar. So he’s branching out. No longer content merely to lie about historical matters, he’s now taken to lying about current events as well. To wit:

David Barton’s grasp of reality has never been a strong one, to say the very least that one could say, but his claim that Donald Trump could go down as one of the five greatest presidents the United States has ever seen seems particularly asinine.

We’re used to hearing David Barton tell ridiculous lies. And we’re used to hearing David Barton make horribly stupid arguments. But this one? This tops them all. He says that if you believe in separation of church and state, you must also believe that Christians shouldn’t pay taxes.

Tim Barton, son of theocratic con man and pathological liar David Barton, takes the same position his father does on the 2nd Amendment, which is that it not only protect a right to own guns, but to own any weapon the government has in its arsenal.

Former Texas State Board of Education member, Liberty U. law professor and now-candidate for the House from Virginia Cynthia Dunbar is repeating pretty much all of David Barton’s lies about religion and the founding fathers, most obviously the blatant lie about the Donald Lutz study.

It had been hours, at least, since David Barton had spouted a ridiculous lie and that is apparently just too long for him.
