Glenn Beck Rips Breitbart,
FOX News Border Coverage

Breitbart TV, by Ian Hanchett

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/20/2014 6:46:57 AM

Talk radio host Glenn Beck criticized Fox News and Breitbart for their reporting of his plan to visit the border to bring food, soccer balls, and teddy bears to illegal immigrants on the southern border. Beck complained about a lack of coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joining his. “Nobody´s reading [The Blaze´s coverage of Ted Cruz going to border]. Our viewers and our readers are not even reading it. That should be the number-one retweeted story. If you like Ted Cruz [you should promote this story.] Where´s Breitbart on that story? Where´s Fox News on that story?” Beck stated. He added

Senator Cruz and Louie Gohmert should distance themselves from this loon ASAP. How in the world were they sucked in? Senator Mike Lee is the one who showed good sense.

Beck said: “This is about mercy not just for the people coming across the border. This about mercy to our own Americans.”

´Mercy´ would be convincing those parents in Central America to NOT send their children off to America on the death trains that are loaded with "the MS-13 gang members, the rapists and the killers."

´Mercy´ for Americans would be to halt the flood of all these illegals (two-thirds of illegal immigrant children approved for asylum already).

Beck is being ruled by his emotions and not his head.

The children are being used as human shields by their own parents and those who want to easy future access to America. Beck has been hoodwinked and his actions will enable and encourage the instigators of this nightmare to continue. He should be setting up his casserole stands *in the childrens´ home countries*, providing his warm fuzzies as an incentive for them to not BEGIN their unlawful and horrific journeys.

Glen get over your self. No one is reading the story because it´s trivial. No one cares that you´re giving soccer balls or teddy bears to illegals. We all know they will be taken care of better than our own citizens. Now Glen if you were making a effort to send these so called "children" back to their parents quickly then that might be a story worth reading.

I quit listening to Glen Beck well before he left Fox. His fame went to his head, it´s all about money and delusions of grandeur for him, now. This is just insane. Most of these *children* are older than 16....many have gang involvement. The insinuation that there are so many small children among them is mostly false. I can´t believe he doesn´t realize this...maybe he does, but is trying to push his own, twisted agenda. UGH.

What isn´t made obvious here is that Beck limited coverage of his event to his own The Blaze. I assume he thought his Blaze would get lots of traffic. But, it didn´t, and now he´s raising Cain to grab the publicity that hasn´t already happened by complaining that no one is reading his Blaze.

Demented in so many ways. Withdraw, Senator Cruz. There´s nothing to be gained by showing up with this crazy person.

Hes like a supersonic plane with no rudder. He bounces from one thing to the next with all the enthusiasm that went into the first. Very hard to watch or listen to.
Its like if a neighbor wants to organize a big block party. We all pitch in and help and its fun. If he wants to organize one every week it becomes too much and participation drops off markedly. Thats where Glenn is now. Too much too often.

Yesterday, I was curious and visited The Blaze, and even though they didn´t feature an article about Ted Cruz accompanying Beck to the border, the posters were making their voices known and it wasn´t positive for either Beck or Cruz. Furthermore, his whining sounds very much like Obama right now, blaming others for their lack of coverage of his "mission of mercy."

I must say, even though Beck is one card short of a full deck, he seems to be a good businessman. Everything he does has a business angle, and to his credit, he´s had some success. Sometimes I´ve wondered if he´s a televangelist pretending to be radio jock / publisher. As a mormon, helping the homeless is something they do naturally. It´s part of what they do. However unlike Mitt Romney, where Beck went wrong was to advertise it. This type of activity shouldn´t be announced or exploited for gain. It backfired and he´s losing members and donations. Yep, Beck may have jumped the shark.

Beck has always been a bit "off". Never liked him but he´s gone from being a weepy nut to a problem for the GOP. Cruz and others need to stay away, far away from him.

And if Beck is concerned about the children of Central America, he should take his checkbook and head south. Set up a charity down there, pass out soccer balls in their home country and encourage them to stay there.

Speaking of Jesus:

com·mis·er·ate
verb \k?-´mi-z?-?rat\:

to express sadness or sympathy for someone who has experienced something unpleasant

I would remind everyone that it was Jesus who upset the ´establishment´ by visiting the sick and infirm (even curing them!), hanging around with sinners and tax collectors, and talking about love and forgiveness.

I think Beck´s heart is in the right place, but he has lost his way. Conservative-type people usually get too judgmental and it is important to remember that one´s actions are one´s own, period.

Beck is an avid showman & an admittedly flawed guy, but if only Fox & BBTV/bigs are giving a smidge of coverage to his Mercy Tour, and nothing from state sponsored media, why are the heads of Big Media ignoring the ´fact´ that majority of ´unaccompanied minors´ are working age men? I think tv lobbyists donate to campaigns too. Both left and right powers-that-be are still angling for amnesty reform and giving Beck or Cruz any positive airtime nicks the strength of their fragile balloon being floated to save the ´refugees´ from their plight.

There is the conservative, populist Beck and there is the preachy Mormon Beck. While there is considerable overlap (picture a Venn diagram), this issue separates the two. His Mormon side is front and center right now.

As to Cruz joining in the visit to the border, we must wait and see how that plays out and what message it may send. Too much is unknown at this point.

Regardless, this is another example of the dominance of (illegal) immigration as an issue.

If not for Beck, many of us would not now fully understand Cloward Piven, the Tides Foundation and Saul Alinsky´s strategy just to name a few. He has provided America with an outstanding education and for that I commend him.

That being said, a few red flags over the years have troubled me: the tiff with Breitbart, the deliberate mischaracterization of Mr. Bundy´s statement about black slaves and now this. My eyes are wide open now.

I honestly think Glenn Beck means well, it is simply that can´t see the forest for the trees. It is either that, or he is "using" these kids at our border the same way the gun banners used the Sandy Hook kids. Simply to promote an agenda, without really giving one hoot about the real issue.

Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:41:27 AM     Post Reply
Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread.

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article

Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

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

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
