Glenn Beck Discusses Border Crisis
and His Charity Plan – The Bold and
Sanctimonious Tour

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/15/2014 10:39:11 AM

Glenn Beck joined Bill O’Reilly last night to talk about his planned border visit and the “angry death threats” he’s gotten from conservatives for doing so. Beck said he understands the anger, but insisted he has a “responsibility to God” to put aside politics and help people in need. (Video)Beck said he’s raised $1.8 million dollars so far, but acknowledges the frustration many have with the broken immigration system. He said there are “some people [that] believe that I’m just gonna make things worse” and even “encouraging people to come here.” Here’s where and why I think Beck is seriously

Well, Mr. Drama Queen, it´s a simple fact that if you subsidize something you get more of it.

True believers are wont to seek salvation for their souls, not their country. If "good deeds" get you into heaven, what does the dissolution of America matter?

Something tells me God will not look kindly on anyone assisting in the destruction of America. That will be measured against whatever "good" is done by fundraising for charities.

I could be wrong but...

Looks like some of the far right Beck was talking about are commenting on Lucianne.

I listened to Beck for about 10 minutes yesterday - he´s not the only one whose heart is touched by all of this mess caused by our President. 100% of all monies he raises are going to this, and he said he´ll even pay for flights back to their countries.

So he´s not setting up tents and cots for them, he´s supplying food and hopefully transportation back. I think spending a bunch of time making an issue of him is a waste of energy.

Call your congressmen and call the White House. That´s where the energy should go.

Superiority is hardly the claim of Christians. Atheists are typically the ones claiming intellectual superiority. They know something we are too ignorant to realize with our little crutch propping us up and keeping us from intellectual freedom.

Glenn Beck has gone from powerful to pitiful...to pitiable.
And I am not at all surprised that the Master Bloviator, Bill O´Reilly, has (so modestly) contributed to Beck´s misguided cause.
Did you notice that in the photo of "St. Nancy" flanked by foolishly grinning preachers that the one on her left (Yeah, I know that you can´t get to the left of Nancy Pelosi) has taken the trouble to tuck his crucifix into his pocket?

Beck was okay when he was on CNN - loved the pitchforks in the background and tolerable on Fox but since he left Fox, I can´t take his sanctimonious.

Okay - we get it - he´s a wealthy man and born again Christian who wears that on his sleeve. He´s one of the elite even if he won´t admit it. So why not let the elite of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador take care of their own? And since he is soo concerned about the children, how about the suffering children in North Korea, Moldova*, the Congo, etc?

* - a very real source of the women and children caught up in human trafficking.

Pardon my double posting please, but I´ve gotta try to help the person crying out in posts 2, 6, and 9. First, a little humor.

A reporter researching an article on religion visits a Catholic and a Baptist church and a Jewish Synagogue. In the two churches, there is a special phone marked, "Talk to God, $45/minute." A similar phone in the Temple reads, "Talk to ***, 10 cents/minute." Asked to explain the difference, the Rabbi smiled and said, "From here, it´s a local call."

You said: "O.K. If Born Again Christians claim a direct link to God, they are dangerous for they presume to be superior to those NOT claiming such a link."

Do not be afraid of Born Again Christians. They are not dangerous to you or to anybody. And they do not claim to be superior to anyone. If you truly believe in God, you too, have a direct link...and it´s even cheaper than 10 cents/minute.

With the season winding down and Tiger Woods actually playing some golf these days a lot of eyes are on what´s going to happen with the Ryder Cup team. US captain Tom Watson shot 68 on Sunday at the British Open which was seven (!) shots better than Woods´ 75 and the cap´n finished five shots ahead of Woods for the tournament. Woods said he was rusty because he hasn´t played very much since his back surgery in March, but when asked about the Ryder Cup Woods said he would pick himself (of course he would).

Using information within the TAGGS system for Health and Human Services we are able to identify the recipients for Grants specifically designated for “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, or UAC’s. With that data, a few more search tools, some time and a little more research, we are able to identify the locations of facilities throughout the country where the HHS grants are being directed and the UAC’s are being transferred/housed. There are essentially two broad types: Residence Care, and Transitional to Foster Care Services.From the FY 2014 HHS Grants we can identify the communities where direct HHS UAC funds have been sent.

HOYLAKE, England — Despite ominous predictions and extreme measures, thunder and lightning never materialized to threaten the players during the third round at the British Open. But when the last putt was holed shortly before the deluge on Saturday, the Open, the world’s oldest major golf tournament, was still in grave danger of turning into a rout. Rory McIlroy was grounded and befuddled as he missed the cut at last year’s Open at Muirfield. This year, he is soaring above the field at Royal Liverpool: turning its par 5s into his personal playgrounds. Still just 25, McIlroy has won his

As Israel continued its deadly assault on the Gaza Strip, Hamas militants sneaked into the country on Saturday and killed two soldiers, delivering the worst blow to the Israeli military on its side of the Gaza border in years. After sunset, loud Israeli artillery barrages were beginning in the north. The morning attack, along with another later in the day that the military said it foiled, highlighted what Israel is coming to see as a security threat more dangerous than the Islamic militant group´s arsenal of rockets.The raids also showed the militants are energized, set against Israel´s deepening resolve to continue its

KIEV, Ukraine -A Ukrainian fighter jet was shot down by an air-to-air missile from a Russian plane and Ukrainian troops were fired upon by missiles from a village inside Russia, a spokesman for Ukraine´s Security Council said Thursday. The alleged episodes mark what Ukraine says is mounting evidence that Moscow is directly supporting the separatist insurgents in eastern Ukraine who have been seen to have substantial quantities of powerful weapons in recent weeks.

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye.

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I.
