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.

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?

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.

Montana has never seen a Democratic U.S. Senate candidate like state Rep. Amanda Curtis. Selected by state Democrats last week to replace Democratic Sen. John Walsh on their November ticket after a plagiarism scandal derailed his re-election bid, Curtis is a far cry from the centrist candidates the party tends to field for statewide office in Big Sky Country. Curtis, a 34-year-old math teacher with a nose ring and a background in labor activism, has only one term in the state legislature to her name, and told ABC News she plans to run a progressive, “grassroots” campaign on income inequality and student-loan debt.

What´s A Grand Jury? How Will

The purpose of a grand jury, in theory, is to protect citizens against unfair and unwarranted prosecutions by the government. In medieval England, it was viewed as a protection against the Crown. Colonists found the institution protected them against unfair English prosecutions and included the right to a grand jury in the Fifth Amendment. But in practice, the prosecutor who runs the grand jury has a great deal of influence in orchestrating the outcome.

ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, hand-picked by president-elect Recep Tayyip Erdogan to succeed him as prime minister, is expected to accept a largely backseat role as his boss strives to make his new job the most powerful position in the land. But Davutoglu is known to be ambitious — and Turkey has seen cases in the past where presidents have tried and failed to control their prime ministers. Erdogan, who nominated Davutoglu Thursday to be premier, is counting that the 55-year-old continue to be the staunch loyalist he proved himself to be during Erdogan´s long tenure as

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there.

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

Ferguson, MO - Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent?
