(PaulWatson) – One of the primary characters in Glenn Beck’s New York Times number one bestselling novel The Overton Window is blatantly a caricature of our own Alex Jones, according to a reader who sent us his review of the book. Jones is fictionalized as “Daniel Baily,” the patriot movement leader who tries to prevent the U.S. government from carrying out a false flag terror attack on Los Angeles.
Beck describes his book as a work of “faction,” fiction based on facts, and accordingly many of the characters in the novel are people plucked from the real world with only their names changed. Continue reading
(Fox) – Glenn Beck reviews FDR’s agencies created under the New Deal and then lists the agencies created under Obama. He preludes this by referring to how FDR and Obama both talked about how they were for the small business owner, when in fact, they actually only cared/care about big business and big government.
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and eat out their substance.” – Declaration of Independence, 1776 Continue reading
(KurtNimmo) – Glenn Beck, the Fox News talking heads, and no shortage of Tea Party activists like to characterize Barry Obama as a Marxist. In an article gaining a lot of traction across the blogosphere, Wayne Allyn Root, who considers himself a Libertarian Republican, says Obama is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure in order to turn the U.S. into a socialist/Marxist state. Continue reading
(MakeItEightEh) – If you are a businessman and need to hire a potential employee, what is standard procedure when “checking out” your prospective employee?
Well, one prudent thing to do would be to contact the previous employer.
Can you imagine FOX News, as it called CNN to get a character reference for Glenn Beck? What do you suppose CNN would report?
Well, they would likely tell FOX that Glenn was good at following orders, toeing the “station line” and reporting what he was asked to do. For CNN, that would be the “liberal line”. Did he do a good job? Would CNN tell FOX he was great for CNN? Or, would they say, well Glenn became too “Republican” for our liking, and so we realized he had to go. Kind of like Lou Dobbs? Continue reading
(MakeItEightEh) – According to Glenn Beck, the reason Obama can not allow the cleanup in the Gulf from the oil leak is the “Jones Act”, which gives the Unions power to effect control over who works on boats. No foreigners are allowed. Yet, Obama has no problem with allowing illegal immigrants. Good point Glenn, or is it?
It would appear just as Beck fed enough truth and good information on George Soros and his involvement in Brazilian oil giant Petrobras, he has diverted once again from the true issue, and is on the attack of labor unions and their pensions. Continue reading
(Business&MediaInstitute) – In preview of his upcoming ‘New Right’ special, ‘Hardball’ host ignores movement’s fiscal discipline aspect, plays up imaginary violence.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews’s ratings lag far behind those of his competition, Fox News’ Glenn Beck, on a regular basis. So is he perhaps trying to become the anti-Glenn Beck to bolster his stature in the cable news world? Video Link Here
(MakeItEightEh) – On yesterday’s Alex Jones Show, there was an extremely philosophical moment for Jones as he discussed the “digesting of truth” that must inevitably be done. Words cannot substitute one’s own realization of the truth. Jones admits he feels powerless and a failure for not being able to convey the magnitude of the reality in which we live.
For some, it is argued, that accepting the big picture means accepting that the entire world as you know it is “wrong”, a lie, and for that reason people are not willing to look at the big picture. It is hard to allow the truth that has always been there to be accepted. It is difficult for some to take the time to watch video after video, repeatedly of the WTC buildings collapsing, and coming to the realization that there is only one logical reason. Continue reading
(ClimateRealists) – Climate Policies Based on Distorted Temperatures by Dr. Tim Ball
Weather and climate boondoggles are almost all associated with government agencies and there are two major areas of concern, research and data. Governments control climate research funding so the problem is extended to those they choose to support. What happens if those paid by them find evidence that contradicts the government’s position? Governments control collection and distribution of data. There are many examples of governments creating a record to suit their position. Read More Here

Adding to the Everything-Causes-Global -Warming file comes the nuttiest idea yet! Researchers have used computer modelling to show plants actually cause global warming.

(Sott) – Freak Arctic Weather Precursor to the Coming Ice Age?
Global news networks are churning out endless reports on the UK election, the financial shockwaves hitting Europe and the Times Square hysteria over some fireworks left in a car. What is not being reported prominently are the unprecedented freak weather events happening around across the northern hemisphere: hail, sleet and snow slamming southern California, deluges devastating the central cities of Nashville in the US and Hunan in China, the Korean Peninsula shivering with a record-low spring chill and reports of snow in Mexico and France.

(PaulWatson) – Last month, so-called “birthers” got very excited over a clip in which Michelle Obama called Kenya President Obama’s “home country,” but a newly uncovered video is likely to stoke even more controversy, because in it the First Lady clearly states that Obama is “Kenyan”.
In a video of a 2008 speech that went viral last month after it was resurrected from the archives, Michelle Obama states, “When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test. Continue reading

In a time of crisis, who can the people trust? Their political leadership, or fellow citizens?
Concerned the answer to that question might be turning into “neither,” Yale-educated ex-soldier and former Ron Paul organizer Stewart Rhodes hatched an idea that’s grown beyond his wildest imagination. Continue reading

(TaxProfBlog) – WSJ: Dividend Tax to Increase From 15% to 43.4%
Last week the Senate Budget Committee passed a fiscal 2011 budget resolution that includes an increase in the top tax rate on dividends to 39.6% from the current 15%—a 164% increase. This blows past the 20% rate that President Obama proposed in his 2011 budget and which his economic advisers promised on these pages in 2008. Read More Here
(ThePeoplesVoice) – “Criminal and Civil Charges” possible for NY Fed
Prosecuting those who caused the financial crisis would lead to the next logical step: confiscating all the ill gotten gains and returning them to the people. The market went down and the people lost a bundle. The market is now back up and those losses are still in place. But guess who made a bundle on the fluctuation? This must be corrected.

Washington, Wall Street and their partners in crime, the media, have continued to spread the myths of an economic recovery since late summer 2009.

(IinstituteForJustice) – “Policing for Profit” Report Documents the Nationwide Abuse of Civil Forfeiture
Police and prosecutors’ offices seize private property—often without ever charging the owners with a crime, much less convicting them of one—then keep or sell what they’ve taken and use the profits to fund their budgets. And considering law enforcement officials in most states don’t report the value of what they collect or how that bounty is spent, the issue raises serious questions about both government transparency and accountability.

So divorced from reality is the American political conversation, it becomes necessary to defend the good name of socialism by explaining that no such thing exists in the U.S. In fact, the United States government does less for its citizens than most of the rest of the world’s developed industrial nations.
“More of the rich stay rich and more of the poor stay poor here in the US.”
Glenn Beck and other far right multi-millionaires are claiming that the US is hot on the path towards socialism. Part of their claim is that the US is much more generous and supportive of our working and poor people than other countries. People may wish it was so, but it is not.
(KurtNimmo) – Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano, along with Michele Bachmann and Glenn Beck, are anti-government patriot movement “enablers,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“These men and women have helped to put key Patriot themes — the idea that President Obama is a Marxist, that he and other elites in the government are pushing a socialist takeover, that the United States plans secret concentration camps and so on — before millions of Americans, many of whom actually believe these completely false allegations,” declares the SPLC in a recent web posting. “Whether these people tell such tall tales because they believe them or simply because they are willing to shamelessly pander for votes or ratings, is anyone’s guess; but the noxious effect on the body politic is the same.”
(NWOTruth) – Anyone who has watched Fox News of late has seen them talking about the April 15 “tea party” demonstrations, which they take pains to characterize as a spontaneous grassroots uprising against government spending that they are simply “covering.” Continue reading
(KurtNimmo) – The establishment is petrified by the Tea Party movement and its pro-Constitution philosophy. In order to shut it down and render it into another harmless false right-left paradigm circus sideshow distraction, they mischievously launched a concerted effort to turn it into a milquetoast wing of the Republican party and appoint media diva Sarah Palin and disinfo operative Glenn Beck as its leaders and founders.

In my article ”Saying Yes to the Party of No,” I commented on how pleased I’ve been to see Glenn Beck talking about a subject I’ve been writing about since the late seventies: a government-declared state of emergency leading to a ”temporary” dictatorship.
I have long believed that the mathematics of an insatiable entitlement society in the U.S. guarantees a runaway inflation, which likely would be followed by anarchy and chaos – a perfect excuse for government to resort to strong-armed totalitarian measures to ”restore order.” My model has always been Germany’s Weimar Republic in the 1920s, where runaway inflation brought Adolf Hitler to power.

Gary brands a new “Enemy of the State” and reads from the mailbag. Continue reading
(PaulWatson) – While Fox News host Glenn Beck propagandizes almost on a daily basis about how 9/11 truthers represent a dangerous extremist fringe who are planning on killing the President, it turns out that the only violence being espoused is coming from Beck’s own viewers. Continue reading
(RawStory) – Update at bottom: Paul tells CNBC he’s “leaning to being undecided”
Remember the big conservative conference Fox News has been hyping over the past 10 days?
The Conservative Political Action Conference’s presidential straw poll, a key marker of the mood among conservative voters, apparently didn’t mean anything to the network. And if it did mean something, the only real result is bragging rights for the individual candidates who were so well exposed. And hey, even Dick Cheney showed up.
Or, at least that’s how Fox News characterized the poll, after it was reported that Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) had won it by a wide margin. Continue reading
(PaulWatson) – The stunning duplicity of Fox News host Glenn Beck has been exposed once again after the talk show host told USA Weekend magazine that he now believes in man-made global warming, after years of assuring his viewers that he was on the side of skeptics who questioned the science behind AGW claims.

On Feb. 16, 2009 Glenn Beck told his audience to standdown and allow a “power grab” by the Executive Branch to happen “out in the open”.
What? Liar… you say?
I just read on another “Big” blog where someone called Glenn Beck a “Liar” (if you can imagine that) and the commenter was pummeled for saying it. Adding my response I said, “People don’t like to be called ‘liars’, so let’s just say Beck is a great ‘deceiver’ instead.” Continue reading
Coaxed in rhetoric and uncertainty Glenn Beck on his TV show immediately after the Austin plane attack clearly suggested there may be a relation between the bomber and the Tea Party movement. He went into a scripted screed about how the tea parties need to get away from anyone calling for a revolution, “whether it’s a Tea Party revolution or a communist one.” Read More Here

Conspiracy theories that question government action are shunned while ones that endorse all-out war are to be embraced and repeated. Continue reading
Your Debra Medina attack really got me asking why it was a top priority for you to “expose” her “9/11 truther” connections.
You even asked:
“Do you have advisors that advise you or people that are around you that are 9/11 Truthers? … Would you, if you found out that there were, would you disavow them like the president should have but I mean, he escorted them out in the middle of the night.” Benedict Arnold Glenn Beck
I used to be a big fan of Glen Beck. I thought here is a guy, first on CNN/Headline News and then FOX News, as well as his massive mainstream radio show, telling it like it really is without most of the Politically Correct spin and party politics pandering that we are all so used to.

(America20xy) – Today, in a move that illustrates exactly why Glenn Beck has painstakingly tried to portray himself over the past year as some kind of man of the people while hosting a show on the infamous Fox News Channel that cheered the War in Iraq, he turned an interview with Debra Medina, a candidate for the TX Governer seat, into a PR ambush on her and the 9/11 Truth movement.
