You discussed it here yesterday. Today, Glenn Beck takes it to a whole new level (9'45" in)...
- advertisements -
GB even had some love for Ron Paul today.
I thought I heard some ZH heads exploding.
That's the whole show on the "clip", but Glenn did give a nice shout out to ZH. It was interesting to watch him backpedal on Ron Paul right before he interviewed him. Glenn has always maintained the Ron Paul was nuts, now all of the sudden he only has a "couple of positions Glenn doesn't agree with". Glenn's new litmus test is "what do you think of the FED?" and "do you support Israel?" (the correct answers for Glenn are "end the FED" and "I support Israel")
Although the wanna be TV evangelist stuff is hard to watch, he has come down hard on the FED and banksters over the past two years. I will miss his show (which was DVR'd to skip or delete much of it). I still DVR Dylan Ratigan's show, but even he is shifting away from the FED, banksters and economy.
I stated months ago that this is not about money. It's about absolute control. And the religious factor has not been addressed. Until now:
The power behind the Church of Rome is about to undertake a chamaleonic transformation.
Go long praying mat manufacturers.
We ain't seen nothing yet.
Thanks for sharing the link.
Boy, gonna miss GB after Jun 30th.
There is only 1 way this is going to end, just like all the other times. Collapse. This is no difference then the prior collapseS, the only thing that is different will be the size of the collapse.
Glenn Beck has always been a year or two ahead of the curve.
Cable TV as we know it today is going the way of print newspapers.
Glenn Beck is moving to the future of news and entertainment.
You will no longer get a "package" of TV channels 90% of which you don't watch or in some cases are forced to block them from viewing by the children.
You will subscribe to Internet Video Services such as Netflex, Hulu, Major League Baseball, and Glenn Beck TV.
In one or two years you will dump your cable or satellite TV and hook one of these up to your TV.
This guy isn't fooled.....Green Beret General Boykin.
Boykin should have protected poor little Glenn...
"Tearful Glenn Beck Describes How He And His Family Were Attacked In New York Park"
If you by "curve" you mean the MSM. All credible material has been ripped off from alternative media (without referencing them) by his writer/echo team, and they often take the opposing side until it is undeniable and then flip-flopps. For example he still thinks 9/11 Truthers are CRAAAAZY for questioning the official narrative.
So you've loaded up on your precious metals and you got your hidden food and guns, and now you want the financial system to collapse. What does it solve? Why be cancerous, why be bunghole?
People are tired of the system, they just want the shift to happen already so we can get back to living instead of preparing for the inevitable.
Just let the cookie crumble already, delaying it is only going to make things more painful in the long run.... less people would die if the system collapsed today... the way these people are pushing it billions will not survive the transition, we still have the resources to recover , but the broken system has to collapse and be done away with before it consumes all the resources.
After reading this I hope it does collapse. All these people calling for a collapse will be so screwed. 1000oz of silver says most of those hoping for a collapse have no idea how to fend for themselves. Good luck surviving.
No kidding. These "bring the Apocalypsis" types are dumber than a bag of bricks. Remind me of the russian serfs who couldn't wait to get pigeonholed into a guillotine...
beanieville does it for the TP, for his bunghole.
Glenn Beck is a twit. I never watch or listen to mouthpieces like him as the only outcome is dead brain cells and a lower IQ. Unfortunately, it's the sheep that keep them on TV.
If we do collapse I hope we can do it with a bit of grace, but grace isn't the norm anymore. The norm has become prison tattoos and pants down below your ass. This system does need a major overhauling, but there are wayyy too many asshole opportunists of all stripes who's natural predator instincts will take over in the process. That's where things could get ugly. If they get thinned early, we might come out of this quite nicely. If they don't....well, it could get real interesting.
GB is a political flavored tv clown show for people who DON'T do their own legwork...
There is nothing so powerful as the "revealed truth" to an anxious public...That's his appeal. GB has (had) airtime to fill and lots of it. No surprise ZH fell into his pudgy hand.... He presented SOME of the backstory to joe 6 during his chocolate reign but the man is just...god awful to watch. (unless you're in his AUDIENCE!)
Calling Beck a "clown" is not exactly fair. Let's be honest, clowns have to have a shread of sanity and intelligence to be successful.
Beck gets his stuff directly from dog.
And I do mean dog. The one that lives in the adandoned Circuit City.
Interesting that 24 have junked you when about the only thing you said that could possibly be considered controversial is calling GB a TWAT, er I mean twit, and that would only be controversial to proto Nazi admirers of GB. He is without a doubt the second or third most evil man in the country, I know he has admirers, but I would never voluntarily have anything to do with anybody that would admire such a fat slug so filled with hate.
If I were you I would be proud to call GB what he is, a fat self serving cunt that in an unrigged competition for resources would be the very first to go squeling home to mommy, so the more junks you get the more proof we have that ZH posting is dominated by fascists wing nuts that have no ability to cooperate with others and thus will be among the first to die in the collapse that sadly will come if for no other reason than their own greed, it will be an environment where only those who cooperate will get through it, and even then only till the next world war starts.
I also agree with you that things could turn out positive if done right, otherwise in the "collapse" it is quite possible that the USA will follow the example set by the USSR and lose a great deal of territory to fractious nation states and what remains will be an unstable mafia of oligarchs above the law who set up two or three of the worlds most expensive city states to live in while the rest of the nation decays back into the dark ages and life expectancy drops to 50 or less. Gone will be democratic values, I know we are losing them now and they seem tattered, but post crash they will simply not exist at all. Gone will be any semblance of economies of scale that support 7 billion lives, billions will die within a few years. Those of you that look forward to it are monstrous Nazis that deserve to be the first in line for it, but the world was never just, so you might eke out some sort of pallid survival. Too fucking bad if you ask me.
Lastly, if the USA does not figure out a way to get through this before the collapse happens, and the clock is ticking with both hands very near midnight, it will not be the end of "liberal America" as some so ardently hope, it will be the end of man, not just civilizations, all people, the few that survive the initial fall will not survive the radiation.
To save your poor brain cells, think of it as an episode of H.R. Pufnstuf but without the reality bias.
And to anyone attempting to assign an 'ism' to it, note that most all of the 'isms' are centralizers. They want all the power to accrue to themselves and their followers and all the industrial waste to go to their non-followers. Most of them want a one-world system, whether the headquarters is in Brussels or Washington or Minot.
You won't hear from the advocates of local power on Fox.
Everybody junks your post but why? Because they can't handle the truth - Americans are idiots. Those white trash morons deserve the economic raping they are getting because they make stupid choices on a daily basis. You make a stupid choice - you get ass raped and your children have to pay for your sins and your grandchildren. You're a god-forsaken race of cretins destined to sink into Third World poverty and slavery. Nice job, shitheads.
let me hazard a wild stab in the dark here, you're not American, are you?
It's hard to disagree with our non-American friends as they simply echo a sentiment I have expressed publicly on numerous occasions. It just seems ironic that they come to a forum renown for its community of non-moron Americans to express these views. Maybe its the only place they can find Americans who understand what they are saying.....
For the statement "Americans are idiots." to hold weight
there must be a country that isn't dominated by idiots.
Not necessarily. I would apply that same 98% idiot ratio to most of the planet. It is an extension of the 'We are all brothers, man's innate goodness, and we are all entitled to ______" bullshit.
We're "niggerizing"...that is what is happening. For some reason...God only knows why...we're taking on the culture of the minorities. White culture has stepped aside and is allowing itself to become "black". It's fucked up...and detrimental. Is it white guilt? All I know is it HAS to change. We need to go back to the thinking of the 50s...pre civil rights.
Yet another clueless, racist typist chomping at the bit to profess a "truth" whose content is 100% hot air.
Did you WATCH the video? The mob that robbed the store...blacks. The people fighting in the next segment...blacks. Where there's "social trouble"...there are ALWAYS blacks! They are societies cancer...open your fucking eyes!
When the government fails...what the fuck are the blacks going to do? 80% or more rely on the government for handouts.
The culture you are refering to is not 'black'. It is the culture that the American Left, and specifically the Counter Culture, has incubated in urban minorities over the decades since Civil Rights. The last thing the Democratic Party could afford was independent, successful, freethinking minorities, or worse yet racial harmony, so something had to be done. The behavior you see here is not different from that on display by the Labor side of the Democratic Machine. The difference between white Leftists and what you see here is that the white Leftists have the means to behave this way and not suffer the same consequences. In fact, it's a great way to get tenure, where you can get paid to be santimonious about how when minorities behave the same way you did, they go to prison. But it's the same thing.
Get a copy of Demonic.
I would agree if it wasn't for the fact that EVERYWHERE the black man lives...there's trouble. I see peaceful scenes of idyllic life...and I notice...there are NO black people there! Then I see scenes of strife, violence, anger, filth...and there they are...black people. Even a few can change the character of a place/experience.
They will burn down their neighborhoods and business. We've seen this happen before and it will happen again. This time there will be no government to come in and save them from their own ignorance and thus will starve to death. If their own people in Africa had not participated in the slave trade "industry" we would have never had slavery in the USA. The crews on the slave ships never left the docks in Africa. They purchased slaves from African slave traders. They enslaved their own people.
In fairness, Europeans instutionalized Feudalism and allocated serfs as property of local lords because of the manpower shortages created by Charlemagne's policy of selling Europeans to the Arabs for gold. Slavery was only truly ended by the Industrial revolution which made slavery cost prohibitive. Which makes you wonder about Obama when he complains about ATMs...
I reluctantly agree with some of what you say though not the way you say it, can we call it tribalism? And can the Reichwingers here stop blaming liberal or progressive values and start blaming permissive parenting for much of it please? Permissive cultures happen in all stripes of the political rainbow. To point the finger at any one race and blame their values and culture for the downfall of our cultural decline is a waste of time and just untrue, will solve nothing. Look at the tribalism and destructive cultures dominated by white people or Asians, they are nobetter stewards of their own values than we are of ours at this point, look at how many places are torn by wars or strife that cannot advance because of tribal conflicts and what amount to petty disagreements, Sri Lanka, Paki-India, Sudan, Afghanistan, Georgia, Iraq, and that does not even count all the places where one tribe has won and so dominates that it smothers all other points of view and all other freedoms, too many to list, and that is what our own homegrown Taliban want for us. I would rather see America burn than to support an America where such fascists win the day and rule again.
Anyone who doesn't share my opinions and values is an idiot. LOL! Make sure to follow that albino rat back into the burrow he came from.
GB and I think alike on at least one thing. Suckers deserve to get eaten and shit out. Xenophobia is an absolute goldmine for those with the talent to understand it.
I'll go one better.
Are you from Ireland, England, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Iceland or Greece. Or just maybe the EU? Yea, we're screwed up. But really don't want to take crap from countries that told us that we need to be more like them who are now trying to turn back the tide of socialism.
And...one of the reasons we are screwed up is that we are trying to be like the EU was a few years ago.
At least we know you watched the clip above. I will admit, it is the first Fox Beck show I have seen. I sent it to a few people, it is not fluff. That said, our current problems are not the result of emulating Europe for the last three years. That simply made it worse. The real causes here are indigenous and the result of violation of the Constitution. Allow me to direct you to an excellent article from a couple of days ago..... http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-us-monetary-system-and-desce...
Fair enough. But, been to EU enough times over the past 20 years, hearing that we need to be more like the EU. Current problems go back much longer than 3 years and cross US party lines. Agree 100% on Constitutional violations.
Sounds like it is people in the EU suggesting we need to be more like them?
You're proving my point. Actually I AM American and I am completely disgusted by the state into which the USA has fallen courtesy of its mutantly idiotic citizens. Just finishing up on plans to relocate to Uruguay where I can enjoy watching the US crash and burn.
ROFLMAO! "God-forsaken race of cretins." Nice one! But that is one of our most endearing traits!
Anyone calling themslves WankLord, meaning Lord of the Wankers. deserves to be trashed...especially after that pitiful rant. Obviously, you would shake the guys hand in a heartbeat.

We await the collapse of the global slave system with intense anticipation. I can here the Liberty bell ringing, and the sound of obscenely wealthy plutocrats swinging softly in the breaze. You are the lapdogs of Chinese whom you once conquered. You can't even keep worthless Pakis from overrunning your capital city. You are an embarassment to your ancestors. You dumb brits had the world in your hands and pissed it all away. I am ashamed to be your kin.
Why everybody junking the wank? He speaks the truth. The only thing Americans give a shit about is football, gay marriage and Snooki. And beer. In that order. It's truly sickening what American society has become.
"football, gay marriage and Snooki"
Possibly the most vacuous--and utterly false--comment about America I've ever read on ZH. Or anywhere else.
The wanker gets junked because his hatred and intellectual laziness distill an enormously complex society down to a cretinous cartoon image. Exactly as you did. Beep a gunka chucha, Honk konk konk, Jimbo's dead.
Nope... that's simply what they serve up on TV, their own version of the siren's song. If you're strong, you won't watch/listen and remain free. In the middle ages, they had church to control. In the 70's, it was "Little House on the Prarie" and "Grizzly Adams". Now, 31 flavors to trap a wider audience. Are you a no good slob? Watch the latest episode of "Hoarders" on The Loser Channel and instantly feel better about yourself.
Sopophoric feel good shit is poison. Shoot your fucking TV man. Elvis had it right. That's why they hate the internet. Self customizable input, no control of the masses through it.
Sad, but true.
WouDon't get your post. Not surprising that left-wing churches are melting because they arent quite sure what they are all about - not anything that hasn't been going on for a couple of decades...
And right-wing churches are strong because they've embraced
capitalism, 'Judge your neighbor', "Homos are bad and divorce is good.",
"Jesus loves you and hates them.", "You've bought a ticket to The Rapture
amusement park!", mega-churches, and "God wrote the Bible and
kept it exactly as he wrote it for 5000/2000 years." like it was God.
God is great, modern christianity is a failure.
New Thor...Thank you!! I may get junk and this will get lost in the overwhelming number of post..but you put your finger on something truely important...and that is the politisizing of christiany by both the left and the right.

I just got 2 identical comments deleted, just testing the second time to see if it was deleted by accident. It had something to do with Beck and his question on Israel and a link to another site talking about the TSA/Perry.
Don't know which part of the comment triggered the deletion but, it seems to represent a disturbing trend.

It's far more likely it's just a glitch. I've gotten a number of error screens/down for maintenance pages the last 2-3 days, and if you haven't noticed, there's double, triple, even quintuple posts that have appeared as well, which indicates issues with the posting side of things.

While Zerohedge has details a structural engineer would masturbate to, GB has educated far more people about what's happened to our country. The hatred for him from many of you on here is truly curious, as most would actually agree with him. Do those who hold him in low regard also harbor jealousy?
Thanks Tyler, for all you do and Glenn Beck too.
By reason of Soros doing his best to get GB off the air, he must be considered a worthy opponent. Much of the nexus of evil is funded by Soros and the light of day has caused the rat to scurry a bit and be distracted. And the payments to Media matters must have been astronomical. Astroturf ain't cheap, ask the Wisconsin Public Unions.
Soros must be to Beck as Douglas was to Lincoln prior to the Civil War.
Beck has been good. The "gloves came off" a long time ago.
Was it coincidence that Beck interviewed G Edward Griffin (Creature From Jekyll Island) on his show and then came the open declaration of war on Fox by Media Matters?
The hate here for GB seems curious indeed, but really it is just the Chinese/Communist clutter monkey troll movement at work [both foreign and domestic].
Either this, or GB ripped everyone off by allowing a gold seller to suggest to people that they should buy gold...which seems...normal, really. But not if your are a clutter monkey, and your mission is to move the Apple Zombie Revolution forward @ $800 a pop [depending on options]. Don't really hear any complaints about advertisements for entirely redundant tech devices [with a half life of one year]...which seems strange.
But probably just having random martini thoughts, though...probably nothing...
Don't be a baby Cdad. Just accept the fact that, regardless of what he actually says or what you project on to his statements, Glenn Beck, as a personality, is a giant douchebag. Most people cannot stand more than 10 seconds of the farcical combination of his tone of voice, buffoonery, and skewering of facts.
Don't be a baby Cdad.
Don't be a baby Cdad.
Okay, I'll have one more martini then just to fight off that whole baby thing.
In the meantime, you are the one here toting the MSM opinion on Beck, and your suggestion that most people cannot stand 10 seconds of him is not born out by the facts. He was killin' it in a tough time slot.
So go ask mom to powder your rash covered ass, okay there short bus?
CDaddyO, I think the point to GB's general unsavoury reputation is that anyone, ANYONE, who has this much leeway to say all things controversial on MSM has to be a shill.
Same goes for the other much discussed personality, RonnyP.
But GB here...... snake oil salesman, controlled opposition.....he smells of all those things.
I think the point to GB's general unsavoury reputation is that anyone, ANYONE, who has this much leeway to say all things controversial on MSM has to be a shill.
I think the point to GB's general unsavoury reputation is that anyone, ANYONE, who has this much leeway to say all things controversial on MSM has to be a shill.
I see...you're going with the "They know that we know that they know that we know" theory of Beck. However, that would mean that the Fox Network would want to keep him on the air, wouldn't it? And wouldn't Soros then be a HUGE FAN?
Also problematic is the fact that you assert that Beck has an "unsavoury reputation," which is a MSM message...which you claim to distrust. As previously posted, his ratings are not in line with your opinion of him.
Could be all these anti cry baby martinis I've had, but I am having a hard time following your theory.
By extension does this mean that Tyler knows that we know that Tyler knows that we know that numismatic coins should be bought on dips?
Something about the idea of someone sitting down with a martini for an episode of Glenn Beck is inherently comical and paradoxical.
Who gives a shit about MSM news ratings? Isn't that the equivalent of fiat FX swaps these days? Entertaining your argument, selectively choosing the ratings of one show last Friday is pretty weak, especially when he was off the air for a while and just came back for his last few shows. Shit, I even tuned in one night last week to watch the circus freak perform.
Alas, that's not really the whole truth about his ratings, now is it....
"Glenn Beck and cable channel Fox News are ending his daily TV show after falling ratings, a loss of advertisers and months of controversy over inflammatory remarks by the conservative US host."
But you will retort with some interesting alternative theory for why no one wanted to watch his show anymore and it got cancelled, I'm sure. Frankly I think my thesis (reminder: he's a giant douchebag) is pretty plausible.
Well look who is the cry baby now?
I'm sure we could both spend the rest of the night searching the web for facts about his ratings. I rather think his success speaks for itself, especially when some troll goes nuts on the comment section of some blog somewhere trying to discredit him with the wave of his weak assed opinion while tossing around the occasional ad hominem attack towards those who do not quite see it the same way.
There is also the measure of his wealth, the size of his radio audience, the number of books he has written and sold, the size and power of those who declared him as an enemy, the half million or so folks that gathered on the mall with him last summer, and the fact that, apparently, he was able to trick the entire free world into buying over priced numismatic coins...which you would not think he would be able to pull off if he didn't have a SUBSTANTIAL FOLLOWING. The thing about you trolls is that your arguments never really hold up against...your own arguments.
You see, it isn't Beck that has an uphill climb to prove his influence and credibility. It is you with the contrary case.
Perhaps, you should be drinking the martinis.
Nicely done! (and I'm not even a Beck fan...see below, somewhere)
Glenn Beck has done more
to educate the public on the evil
that is The Federal Reserve
than anyone else in the MSM.
For that, he deserves my respect.

agrotera, thanks for reminding me to pray for the trolls. May God bless each of them with peace, joy, and freedom.
May God bless you agrotera, your family, and friends. Perhaps we will meet on the other side of the coming collapse.
You're delusional dude......if "it isn't Beck that has an uphill climb to prove his influence and credibility", then why have you made probably 15 posts in this thread feeling the need to defend Beck against countless people making the contrary case which you perplexingly assert the argument itself works against? That makes no sense. If what you say is true, shouldn't the posts in this thread speak for themselves? Shouldn't the "popularity" of Glenn Beck stand on its own? Clearly it doesn't, or you would not feel compelled to defend his endorsements or blame dislike for him on Communist China trolls.
In any event, there are a lot of things that are popular that are fucking horrible societal parasites. Sorry, but more people than you would care to admit place Glenn Beck in that group. Agree to disagree I guess...
then why have you made probably 15 posts in this thread

It is good sport with martinis...and a good cause, in general. Do everyone here on ZH a favor. Move along.
And please report here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy
Last word: he makes millions of dollars perpetuating the left/right propaganda matrix that provides the means to infiltrate and destroy our government and constitution whilst having the nerve to act as if he is a modern day founding father. Thus Glenn Beck is a treasonous scumbag.
Glenn Beck well deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his Fox show success. He laid much corruption bare for all to see (it was like Watergate 3 times a week) and attacked corruption with a bluntness, forcefulness and honesty that is entirely rare these days of non-stop establishment propaganda broadcasters
i disagreed with his views on Isreal, being so pro-God/religion and his love of the Constitution but i learned so much about the US from Becks piercing rants and depth of knowledge on American history. The bloke is definately a big positive, unlike his detractors
God has produced awesome results,
religion has not.
Don't get the two confused.
Fuck 'em both.
HE will remember you said that.
I don't think Glenn Beck reads all the comments on ZH, but perhaps you're right.
"God has produced awesome results,
religion has not.
Don't get the two confused."
"God has produced awesome results,
Don't get the two confused."
the subject of the message you responded to? If so, where is Glenn mentioned?
Well said, ZG.
Whoever is promoting the Beck Is Evil meme is very good at their job.
It's almost like the Sarah Palin phenomenon: It's not enough to simply say, "the lady is incorrect," or, "I very much disagree." Instead, they must express compulsive hatred in ever louder, viler and more public ways.
a random martini....... now that is a thought.
Don't mind if I do. Thank you.
And... got you.
Glenn Beck basically defrauded the stupids who watch his show in partnership with a dodgy sponsor.

By selling gold at twice the melt value, the price of gold would need to double for consumers to break even on their “investment.”
• Goldline Salespeople Misrepresent Their Ability To Give “Investment Advice”
Sales people imply that they are “investment advisors” or “financial advisers” by offering investment advice, which insinuates that they have some sort of fiduciary responsibility to get you the most return on your investment.
However, since they are not licensed investment advisors, they have no such responsibility. In 2006, the Missouri Secretary of States’ Office, Securities Division filed formal consent order against Goldline for exactly this reason and recovered over $200k for an elderly consumer that was ripped off.
Ahh.. the sweet smell of capturing a fool with his pants down. Enjoy the enema, stupid one.
It's because even when he speaks the truth, he's so goddamned in love with the idea of Glenn Beck that it's difficult to watch. He would make far more headway if he left the ridiculous circus act at the door and just told the truth. I try to watch him because he talks about issues that most ZHers care about, but he's like a cake with too much frosting - you can only take so much before you feel like throwing up.
GB looks suspicious to me because if looks like the kind of guys who has an agenda. For exemple in the first minute he is propagating the left -right paradigme while in true they are all doing exactly the same thing.
Also, faux news is one of the most controlled "news" network i have ever seen. If Glen is allowed there, that mean to me that there is a reason for it and knowing Fox it is a propaganda reason.
But I appreciate the fact that he made a lot of people wake up about important stuff.
also, your jealousy argument is patetic.
I've never previously liked Beck (though your use of "hatred" is a bit strong!), but I really liked all of what he addressed in this show -- including sharing the spotlight with 2 free-market presidential candidates rather than with faux tea party hacks from the neocon faction (ahem...Bachmann). Then again, I have no interest in who may be running for the job of next Federal Sock Puppet, since no meaningful change can come from the combined plutocracy of Potus, Congress, Scotus and their lobbyists.
Beck's religiosity is very off-putting -- as is his overt support of Israel. I couldn't give a damn whether someone is Catholic, Jew, Muslim or Rastafarian ... their choice of personal imaginary friend is none of my business, and I'd rather they didn't tell me all about it either! As for Israel: If they still can't survive on their own after 63 years of hand-holding by the West, then maybe they should move somewhere else!
I had the overall impression from this show that Beck has undergone yet another transformation in the months since Soros got him canned from Fox ... and that he is using these final 4 shows to express that transformation very directly and clearly. He made no bones about supporting individual responsibility and state separation from the feds, whereas he has previously* focussed more on changing (ie. adding to) federal laws and regulations. (His previous transformation was to produce the series on Soros and the Fabians rather than just bagging Alex Jones and conspiracy theorists).
* Others may correct me here...I've never been able to stomache watching much of him at all in the past (though I did watch all of his 'anti-Soros-Fabian' series and saw it as making valid points but missing the real target of the true oligarchs). But I'll certainly be watching his final 3 shows to see what message he is leaving with his disciples.
Beck's religiosity is very off-putting -- as is his overt support of Israel.

folk should do a bit of research on Beck's conversion to the Mormon religion, and just what it is they believe in & why. . . the support of Israel will be more obvious when you understand the Mormon Zion.
I understand that, CA ... but I think that the zionists are in for a bit of a shock when the true NWO end-game finally plays out. And it still doesn't change my distaste for those who selectively spout any religious text as a replacement for reasoning from first principles.
GB has educated far more people about what's happened to our country.
That's true for me. GB was where I first heard about the trouble with the Fed. I could tell GB was full of sh*t in so many ways, but his show got me looking into things like Ron Paul, the Fed and George Soros.
I was involved in groups against corporations, and GB would talk about them, so I could see he knew about real stuff that was going on, but from the start it was easy to see that he was putting his own spin on things.
Also, his mannerisms are really irritating. He's very easy to hate. Perhaps he has too much omega in him.
LOL. If he was more like David Hasselhoff it would be better for you? : )
Educated? You must be a trailer dwelling moron.
governor rick perry, is about the same as weiner......
i can't believe this piece of trash is considering running for presidente.
as far as i am concerned both of these pieces of trash are made for each other.
David Dewhurst is the first male stepford wife. ever.
and i don't even know what that means.
Perry's politics are kinda different from Weiner's, all the same. The latter and/or his staff and unnamed contributors thereto wrote big chunks of "Obamacare." Perry carries on about the 10th Amendment, which is a very very different point of view.
Glenn does a terrific job of connecting the dots. I find him very entertaining as well. He woke me up to the current and future crisis. Did well in metals. Stocking up on food, etc.
Glenn is passionately pro-Israel. ZeroHedge could never be accused of taking a pro-Israel position, like ever, but has been less anti-Israel, lately. A start perhaps.
The comment section is another story, left overs from the Third Reich lol.
Glenn has a lot of good points but man, I just can't listen to him. I have tried. too much of a preacher/pastor/evangelist. Plus my gaydar went off big time on the cover of that book where he was all dressed up as a Nazi. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
Guys like him not infrequently have some suppressed bisexual tendencies. This pattern was part of freuds early theories.
Are you implying it takes a fag to know a fag? Makes you....what?
Your comment was totally uncalled for, and I ain't a Beck fan.
I dont think there is anything wrong with it.
The pattern of an angry paranoid conservative having repressed homosexual tendencies was observed even over 100 years ago.
It was seen in the most vicious of the nazis at times.
But in the past, and still today in conservative circles, the threat of even a slight homosexual tendency is so great to a person's sense of self identity that the threat is externalized. They become paranoid and become obsessed with external threats they see in the world around them.
I am not surprised people's gaydar goes off around glen beck.
Guess I fit. Ready to put all Libs in ovens.
I am half German, after all. Some diseases have no cure.
We can only figure out our internal repressed/suppressed dynamics with years of nonjudgmental self examination.
Represssed gaiety in someone who finds it personally objectionable is only one of many sources of internal conflict.
We all have several!

Oh gawd ... what's next ...
Men either like making love to a woman, or like screwing another man in the asshole, or vice versa.
We often ignore things in ourselves and our world we dont like to think about.
There have been some classic studies on the ability of liberals to recall conservative editorials they read and vice versa.
We are good at forgetting or ignoring things we dont agree with.
It sounds like you like screwing men in their asshole and/or vice versa.
I never understood the appeal, myself, but to each his own.
What do you think of mine; I hate psychatrists, can I be cured, should I be?
I luv you, man!
I love you, cat!
Note to self....don't bother....
Why does it matter who's gay or not?
I think gays are good.
It's population control.
Here here ... and take it in the azz ...
Let the gays get married. Within a generation or two the libs would be all gone..
your math is as horrible as your christianity.
Didn't conservatives spend a large portion of
2000 to 2008 fighting homosexuals and abortion?
HOW'D THAT FUCKING WORK OUT?
"Oh, while we conservatives were following Jesus' two Laws of love God above all else
and love your neighbor as yourself, by declaring jihad on Michelangelo
and his ilk, and pregnant single women, by deregulating any and all banks,
we got ourselves 2 wars and 1 1/2 economic collapses. Let's Party cuz
the Rapture is taking us away soon and NASCAR is always on in
Heaven! YEEEEEE HA! Oh, i bet they have the Hummer6 waiting for
me at the pearly gates!"
Sorry, but Hitler and Nazis (NSDAP) were the socialist party.
They were extreme and very angry lefties. I cannot listen GB as well, but you completely missed the boat on your remark.
I agree, all extreme (left or right) and angry guys have some hidden problem.
I should have said rigid inflexible person....instead of conservative...my careless error....
Glad we got that sorted out...I was unsure what to wear tomorrow ;-)
Rep tie, always works on the Street.
You two are some of the best. I enjoy the snark.
Your evidence that the Nazis were lefties is that they used the word "socialist" in their name? That, and because they were "bad," I suppose. Wow. I deem your analysis less than rigorous.
You appear to be under the impression that fascism and socialism were somehow fundamentally different?
They both came from the same root (Hegel) but took a slightly different route. They were both financed and supported by the same banks and industrialists - and they even trained together before Hitler and Stalin had some disagreement over sleeping arrangements (or whatever).
The brothers had a serious falling out over to what degree the peoples assets should be under state control...but of course the implication was/is that one small group would still control all from on high for the betterment of all, as is always the common refrain.
Isn't it an odd coincidence that when the navel gazing chin rubbing theorists turn their dreams into reality the end result of their "work" is always mass murder and misery?
And Glen Beck/Faux news isn't?
GB and all of his supporters suffer the same mental aberration, small penis syndrome.
