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.

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.

He’s scheduled to be briefed by Attorney General Eric Holder on the situation in Ferguson early this afternoon. Holder and the administration have been critical of the militarized response to protests in Ferguson.

A new report released by New Jersey authorities shows that taxpayers are being socked with a $6.5 million legal bill in part for Gov.

The New Jersey state attorney general released the documents on Friday, revealing the fees from Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the firm Gov.

Egypt has warned that this proposal will be its final effort to secure a lasting end to the Israel-Gaza conflict. According to details leaked by Egyptian newspaper al-Shorouk, the 11-clause proposal contained several key concessions to the Palestinian delegation, including the opening of border crossings between Israel and Gaza, the elimination of the so-called "buffer zones" along the Israel-Gaza border, the extension of the fishing zone to 12 miles off the Gazan coast, and the assistance of Israel and the Palestinian Authority in rebuilding the

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is too strong. PLO boss Mahmoud Abbas is too weak. That’s why we can’t get a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict, says President Obama in an interview with the ever-serious Tom Friedman of the New York Times. The president seems to be confusing Mideast politics with Goldilocks. The peace porridge is too hot (Netanyahu). It’s too cold (Mahmoud Abbas). But with Mr. Obama’s Goldilocks policy, it’s just right. Actually, his Mideast isn’t just right. It’s mostly wrong.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

When it comes to combatting ISIS, the Obama administration has precious few successes to talk about. So today it touted a failure: U.S. Special Operations forces staged an unsuccessful operation this summer to rescue photojournalist James Foley and other Americans being held in Syria by Islamic State militants, according to senior Obama administration officials. The attempt, involving several dozen U.S. commandos, one of whom was injured in a fierce firefight with the militants, was the first known U.S. ground operation in Syria since the country’s descent into civil war.

Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep.

The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.

Global warming has been temporarily ´paused´ according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. Researchers at ETH Zurich have explained the two reasons behind the warming hiatus in their study published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it.
