Are Beck and Company Funding
Lawlessness in the Name of Jesus?

American Thinker, by Catharine Evans

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 7/12/2014 8:07:18 AM

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

Comments:
Beck should have read the part of the Bible that states that one must render unto Caesar (taxes) that which is Caesar´s. He also should have read the part where it says, "If a man shall not work, he shall not eat." Beck did not help himself except among highly theologically-liberal Churches and Obamaphiles. The rest of us Biblical Christians view charity differently: When the government is picking up the tab for illegal activity, using the money WE worked for, criminals of all ages should not be given stuff for breaking the law.

I´m so done with Beck. I stopped The Blaze and will no longer listen.
I and my fellow Americans are becoming enslaved as our resources are stolen by people who do not legally belong here.
I am sure he has strong walls and fences and security guards around his home, and a self sufficient ranch in Idaho that he can retreat to. Increasing Property taxes to support and build new schools are meaningless to him.
Retire now, Glen I can´t identify with you anymore.

What Beck is doing is off the chart stupid.What he is accomplishing is encouraging more people to enter our country illegally and make matters worse.

I hope that, through his charitable effort, his people are able to infiltrate and gather proof that O and company have orchestrated the invasion of exploited children and gang bangers. The only wall at the border is the one O has built to keep the truth hidden--thus no visits to the detention sites, no interviews, etc. If someone were able to get inside with teddy bears, maybe we can get some answers.

I agree with M2. I also want to know why billionaires don´t put their own money where their mouths are? They are so quick to tell us what we ought to do including the churches. Why should the church always be the go-to guy? I thought we had separation of church and state. That is what politicians always tell us until they need us to clean up their mess. Lets send the illegals to DC and put them in school with Obama´s girls. Nuff said...

If you are interested in helping the underprivileged, consider giving to Samaritan´s Purse. I am astounded at the number and variety of services they provide to needy people all over the world. The idea is that the recipients will learn how to be able to help themselves, not figure out how to become dependent clients with their hands out forever.

There is so many levels to the illegal immigration conspiracy that no one knows what all is taking place. Some of children are being warehoused, some are being processed and released with a document that says they are to appear in the distant future. Just last night it was reported that the notice to appear is being used instead of photo ID for air travel. Some of the illegals have sought refuge in the communities they have been released. 2 of the groups that provide temporary shelter for the homeless are being besieged. Glenn Beck, Mike Lee, and Louie Gohmert have decided to help those 2 emergency shelters by delivering a couple of truck loads of food and blankets. They all bitterly oppose what Obama has created but differentiate between private charity and government programs. I encourage all to find and listen to the explanation video released by Glenn Beck.

…"Beck thinks he and his progressive cronies will “handle” the situation at the border." Anyone who knows Beck even a little bit knows he is definitely not a progressive. Currently he sees the situation as a swarm of children caught in a political crossfire not of their making, and he wants to offer short term aid. He remains definitely against illegal immigration, but can not ignore the victims. Besides if you really want to find out what triggered this whole fiasco no one is better equipped to get to the truth and publicize it. All you’ll get from the MSM is a boring repetition of Democrat Party talking points.

I do not care how Glenn spins it. He is enabling criminals. If he cares about children so much let him help the thousands, if not millions, of American children that could sure use some help. He is grandstanding, nothing more, nothing less.

While scanning the dial a couple of days ago, I happened to land on Beck. I used to listen to and watch him but since he´s moved on to Blaze or whatever its called, I stopped. He sounds to me like he´s going off the cliff and losing all sense of reasonableness. No more Beck, no $ for his "calling."

I´m with Beck and the churches on this issue.

How or why these people are here is not the concern - legality is a government issue and the government can´t even manage itself, let along thousands of "refugees."

But, these people are here and need assistance.

Having lived in one of the most dangerous third world H holes for nearly a decade, I can tell you that revolting without money and arms in such a place is impossible. What are they going to do throw rocks at the army?
Our Founding Fathers could do so because they had arms and treasure with which to do it (and the support of France). Washington was constantly plagued with trying to raise funds to keep and army in the field.
I am against admitting any of these into our country and moreover, I am for throwing those here out and barring the door. At this point in our history I am for only allowing those in who have and will contribute to the building of our country. However, I certainly understand the dire circumstances that drive these people here and I agree they have been used for political purposes. Feeding, clothing and medical care and sending them back while we bar the door is only humane.

Two Points:
1) During the Iran-Iraq war, Iran marched little children into the Iraqi minefields inn order to clear them. I see parallels with what Obama is doing with these Central American kids. [Remember calls for "Amnesty by August"?]

2) Like many of you here, I followed Beck from CNN, through Anita Dunn, Van Jones beloved of Valerie Jarrett), his close approach to unmasking George Soros, to the Lincoln Memorial. No more. Beck is dead to me.

What happened to the teddy bears and ping pong balls?

I admire Glenn´s heart, but deeply question his judgment.

I think we all are gritting our teeth over this situation and want to Do Something, it´s that level of continued frustration that can make one act without thinking things through.

There are people here that better understand the workings of the violence in that tri-area in Middle America and what should be done.

But we have people here that need help from violence in their neighborhoods, who need to find employment. This was a well-planned invasion and assault on American´s lands and hearts. We need to take care of our own before taking on another country´s problems.

And we need to turn this to our advantage by pointing out, constantly, to Blacks, Hispanics, all those who thought O was their savior - we need to say, Look - he does not care one thing about you or your families.

When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000. In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. (snip) ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.”

Republicans in the House and Senate have voted thumbs down on President Obama´s request for $3.8 billion to deal with the crisis on our southern border. Most lawmakers think it´s too much money and not enough funds earmarked for border security. Washington Times: Even Texas Gov. Rick Perry, personally recruited by the president to persuade Republicans to support the measure, threw cold water on the idea. He said the president doesn’t need that much money and instead should send National Guard troops to secure the border.

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who is in the process of pursuing a legal challenge to his loss in the June 24 U.S. Senate Republican primary runoff, said Friday his campaign has found more "questionable votes" than the runoff´s margin of victory. In a statement released by his campaign, McDaniel said an examination of voting rolls in Mississippi found 8,300 "questionable votes." He didn´t release specific evidence or a county-by-county breakdown, as has the campaign of his challenger, U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran.

In Gaza, health officials said that the death toll from the Israeli airstrikes had reached 120, with hundreds more wounded. Many of those killed and wounded were said to be civilians, including women and children.

I can remember several times when Obama just started to laugh in public at various disasters triggered by his policies. Happy laughter now seems to be the official White House reaction to domestic and international chaos and human suffering. You could call it leading with Obama’s big strength -- a great smile on TV -- while avoiding the worst of his weaknesses -- his inability to actually solve anything. About a year ago when painfully high black unemployment figures were mentioned, especially among young black men, Obama gave a happy smile in response. Then when “NATO” (i.e., the U.S.) started to bomb and overthrow the stabilizing regime

While President Barack Obama’s job approval rating was highest, by religion, among Muslims, other non-Christians, Jews (by faith), and atheists, his highest job disapproval ratings were among Christians -- Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, and other Christians. In the survey, conducted January-June 2014, Gallup asked about Obama’s job approval and disapproval, by religion. While 72% of Muslims and 54% of atheists expressed approval, only 44% of Catholics did, and only 37% of Protestant/Other Christian and 18% of Mormon/Latter-day Saints.

President Barack Obama treats the press like a spoiled child treats his parents. Despite the pampering, he just keeps complaining about them until he gets his way. As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren´t complimentary enough. At an event with big donors in May in Chicago, Obama lamented that he — the very essence of reason and nonpartisanship — is lumped in with a fanatical Congress in a tale of gridlocked Washington.

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G.

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight.
