Glenn Beck Regrets Calling
Obama a Racist, Claims Warning
of ‘Caliphate’ Coming True

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/3/2014 1:26:26 PM

Glenn Beck appeared on Reliable Sources Sunday morning and discussed his departure from Fox News, how he thinks he’s changed as a political commentator, and how many of the various apocalyptic warnings he’s issued over the years are allegedly coming to pass. Beck recounted the night before he left Fox, a story that involved Bono and an alternate ending for Spider-Man for some reason. He said he became ashamed of the opulent lifestyle he had developed while a Fox host and realized, “If you don’t leave now, you’ll lose your soul. Because I was just starting to want it.” Beck

Glen Beck has the principles of a chameleon and is a loud month buffoon. He as fooled a lot of people over the time with his phony conservative talk and gotten very wealthy in doing so. I guess now he figures he has enough money and doesn´t have to hide who he really is and was.

Dictator Obama is a racist. That is the truth.

FTA Beck said: Obama had a “deep-seeded hatred for white people, ”

When I look at Obama´s actions and his past associations, I can only conclude that Beck was right. I have always felt that Obama is motivated by revenge against whites for all the things he believes we have done to blacks and the whole world (American == white).

Beck says he respects Bernie Sanders because he admits what/who he is. How about Reverend Wright? Does Beck respect this guy? Wright never held back and always revealed who he is. Obama listened to Wright for 20 years or more and stayed with it. The only thing one can conclude is that Obama is NOT telling us who he is, and that he agrees with Wright that white America needs some comeuppance.

Obama is here to deliver Wright´s comeuppance.

Beck was correct to begin with. He only said he felt stupid for saying it, not for thinking it. We still don´t know what Beck thinks, but we do know what our own eyes tell us about Obama.

"Deep-seeded"?? The word is "deep-seated". Either way, Beck mat have exaggerated a bit, but O AMA is a closet racist. I think he had to choose his black side to succeed. He sure wouldn´t have succeeded as a white guy with all white friends, they would have seen through his narcissism and empty suit. He choose to "be black" and now resents us! Beck is a smart guy, but another narcissistic opportunist.

I think we all know someone like Glenn, who purposefully takes the opposite opinion in order to look brilliant. He takes a very superior attitude, like he is above the fray.

My sense is that he has a need to be seen as a prophet, and fills in the gaps with nonsense to feed his ego.

I don´t listen to Glenn anymore and think his time has passed as a public figure. His best reporting was when he told us about various groups and individuals who we did not know about yet. Now, I believe he is so scared of the possible conflicts that some are pushing our republic toward that he´s changed his focus to "can´t we all just get along?" That would be nice, but... conservatives were never the hate mongers.

Beck is a charlatan and no better than Obama. Why is he regretting calling Obama a racist when it´s obvious he is one? Beck needs to see a psychiatrist and take his buddy, the "non-racist" with him. I gave up his radio program in CA ten years ago, and his tv and radio here in Maine. The guy is really off his rocker.

Do we realize what´s happening here?

Glenn Beck, who got much too close to George Soros, and was spot on about Obama being a racist, etc., has finished his reeducation course and will spend the rest of his life trying to undo the good that he did on Fox and at the Restoring Honor rally on the Washington Mall, 28 August 2010.

Are we so naive as to believe that Chief Justice John Roberts, John Boehner, Beck and others were not "leaned on"? It´s the Chicago Way.

There will be others who surprise us.

He may be off his rocker, but he did out (who was that other black racist in the WH, Van Jones?) and he had interesting historians. I´m intrigued with history. Haven´t heard him in years, though. I remember the time he had the black studio crew member speak on his show who disagreed with whatever he was saying. Strange.

GOP edge grows in final stretch
The Hill (Washington DC), by Cameron Joseph    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/4/2014 7:01:11 AM     Post Reply
With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

   

 



 
Obama Unwittingly Makes Best
Case Against Political Speech Laws
American Thinker, by Mark J. Fitzgibbons    Original Article

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated 22 years of marriage Friday and the husband-in-chief offered marriage advice to a new bride while at a stop in Princeton, Indiana. "He´ll screw up a bunch," Mr. Obama said. "Eventually we learn, but it takes us a little longer, because we´re not as smart." For her part, the first lady, who Obama said "has been very patient with me," tweeted a photo from their wedding, which took place Oct. 3, 1992, wishing her spouse a happy anniversary. (Tweet)

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point. Former Democratic State Senate Rod Wright finally resigned

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.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

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.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

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
