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?

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.

Thomas Eric Duncan has the distinction of being America´s Patient Zero - the first but not the last person to develop Ebola symptoms in the United States. Is he a US citizen? No, he´s Liberian. Is he a resident of the United States? No, he landed at Washington´s Dulles Airport on September 20th, in order to visit his sister and having quit his job in Monrovia a few weeks earlier. So he´s a single unemployed man with relatives in the US and no compelling reason to return to his native land. That alone is supposed to be cause for immigration scrutiny. In addition, visitors

I don’t think any single story has the potential to reveal so much about what is wrong, fundamentally wrong, with political correctness and law enforcement. The scope of avoidance is so unbelievable it’s taking hours of assembly and reconfiguration just to comprehend. And let me be absolutely clear the timeline where the broadcasted BOLO’s were needed is 2009 to 2014. Between 2002 and 2009 there was MORE than enough connective information and factual forensic evidence to know there was a serial rapist/abductor around VA college campuses. Hundreds of rapes, and sexual assaults (2002-2014); dozens of abductions and murders, all kept

A former North Korean counter-intelligence officer has claimed that Kim Jong-Un is no longer in control of the nation and is now just a ´puppet leader´. Jang Jin-sung, who used to be an influential officer in Kim Jong-il´s propaganda division, made the sensational assertion at a September conference in Holland attended by several elite exiles, it´s been reported. The capital, Pyongyang, meanwhile, has been placed into lockdown with even the elite banned from entering or leaving, according to a respected news site.

Fighters from the Islamic State extremist group have used a rocket launcher to shoot down an Iraqi military helicopter, say officials. The pilot and co-pilot of the Mi-35 aircraft were reportedly killed in the attack which happened between the towns of Beiji and al Senniyah in northern Iraq. The shooting down of the helicopter showed the insurgents´ ability to hit back against air operations by Iraqi authorities and the US-led coalition.

Updated, 9:03 p.m. | A cyberattack this summer on JPMorgan Chase compromised the accounts of 76 million households and seven million small businesses, a tally that dwarfs previous estimates by the bank and puts the intrusion among the largest ever. The details of the breach — disclosed in a securities filing on Thursday — emerge at a time when consumer confidence in the digital operations of corporate America has already been shaken. Target, Home Depot and a number of other retailers have sustained major data breaches. Last year, the information of 40 million cardholders and 70 million others were compromised at

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
