General David Petraeus resigned amid scandal last week after admitting he had cheated on his wife of 38 years with a woman 20 years his younger. Interesting timing, considering Petraeus was set to testify in the Benghazi investigation and will most likely no longer take part. Why now? And why was the man once hated by the left (betray-us) there in the first place?
This all makes sense if you ‑‑ if you think like a revolutionary. Go back to where General Petraeus was when Barack Obama got into office. Do you remember? There were rumors that he was going to run, Glenn said. We were all looking for a hero to ride in a white horse and this guy had credibility. Everybody, everybody liked General Petraeus. And remember what the left was saying. This is why this was so important. If you remember what the left was saying at the time, the left was saying that General Petraeus was General Betray Us. He was moveon.orgs chief target. The left hated General Petraeus. Why? Because he was good at what he did. He was effective.
So Obama comes in and he puts him and sends him back to Afghanistan. And I remember doing the show at the time saying, Dont do it, General Petraeus, dont do it. But the guy stood up and he did the right thing. And I was saying, Dont do it because theyre trying to take you out. Theyre trying to put you in a situation to where youre removed from the line of sight here in America. And theyll destroy you in the end.
So he goes over and thats when he starts to have an affair with this Broadwell woman.
Then the president of the United States takes Leon Panetta who hates the Pentagon and instead of putting General Petraeus in charge of the Pentagon, he moves the guy who has always been for defunding the military and doesnt have military background, he puts the guy who was at the CIA in charge of the Pentagon and takes the logical choice of the Pentagon (Petraeus) and puts him in the CIA.
Now why would you do that? Why would you do that? That doesnt make any sense, Glenn continued.
Its been reported that James Clapper and the FBI knew of the affair before Petraeus was put in charge of the CIA.
So the administration knew that the guy they were going to put in charge of the CIA was having an affair. That doesnt sound smart to me. That doesnt sound ‑‑ that doesnt sound wise in any stretch of the imagination. But they did it. And they put him in charge of the CIA.
Now, when Leon Panetta was at the CIA, you never heard about these intelligence problems: Well, it was a lack of intelligence. Well, it was bad intelligence. You never heard that. Because if you did hear that, wouldnt that be interesting. That you would take somebody who was having all of these problems with the intelligence, Well, theres a problem with the intelligence, theres a problem with this, theres a problem with that, and then move him over to run the Pentagon. That would be irresponsible, wouldnt it?
So our problems with intelligence all start to pop up you when General Petraeus, the guy America trusts, the guy they know is having an affair, all of a sudden theres these bad intelligence problems. Hmmm.
And then we get to the Benghazi situation where everybody was saying intelligence, intelligence, intelligence. And Im up in my office after the show two weeks ago and I say to myself, Somethings wrong. Somethings wrong. I come down to the studio, two weeks ago, and I say this: Watch for Petraeus to take the blame. As Ive been thinking about this and Ive been thinking wheres Petraeus? Petraeus is the guy whos been set up as the ‑‑ hes the intelligence guy now. Hes the head of the CIA. Everybody trusts Petraeus. Remember when they moved him over there and they were like, why is he doing that? Theyre getting him out of the way. Put this all together. Who have they tried to sell down the river every step of the way, the intelligence? Sloppy intelligence, didnt know, didnt know, didnt know, everything. You watch: Petraeus is going to be the fall guy. Theyre going to have him step down. Theyre going to point all fingers to him. You watch. He goes to Princeton. I think he goes to Princeton.
Two weeks ago they were talking about Petraeus was considering leaving, stepping down and going to Princeton and running Princeton. And I thought to myself, Wait a minute. General Petraeus, General Betrayus, that guy, going to run the university where Van Jones is a professor. Where Peter Singer is a professor. Isnt Cornel West also a professor at Princeton? Is it Princeton?
The dumping ground for the Center for American Progress, Van Jones university hes going to go run? Im sorry, the university that has the Woodrow Wilson Center for Politics? Really? Youre going to go run that? Theyre going to embrace him? Hes going to run that? Wow, is that a wild ‑‑ thats a wild turn of events, isnt it? Howd that one come about? Who wanted to get him? Whos been campaigning for him to have that? Howd that one happen? That one happened, Im convinced, because somebody said, General, General, General, look at ‑‑ you can leave right now and keep your career, knowing that a man like that will say, At least I can shape young minds. I may have made mistakes or I may have done this or whatever, whatever they got on me, I can leave and I can leave with some honor and dignity and I can go shape minds. And hell say in himself, Its better than having no credibility. At least I can go and I can make an impact because somebody like General Petraeus would know one of the problems with our country is education.
So one of our problems is education. I can go in and do it. Now maybe General Petraeus is like Colin Powell. I dont know. Maybe hes a big progressive. I have no idea. But I will tell you this: We ‑‑ this was a CIA safe house. We were at least running guns. Im beginning to think its much, much, much worse. But were at least running guns in that safe house.
General Petraeus knows it, knows everything about it. Hes got all the information. The week before he testifies, this comes out? The president knew; they held it. They held it. This is what the mob does, gang. Youve got to look at our president and this administration as Al Capone because thats what youve got. This is what they do. They hold the information, General, youre not going to say anything. I dont think this general can sleep at night. And heres why he probably wont say anything: Because he has two children.
Glenn said that the other piece of information that has been released is a reference to sex under a desk.
Thats a warning shot, Glenn said. Glenn believes that the White House has more information that could be even more embarrassing for his family and that they will release it if he doesnt keep quiet about Libya.
I dont think hes going to say anything. If he is the man we thought he was, he will. And his children will suffer for it.
This is why Ive said to you have got to have your closets clean. They will destroy you. If theres anything youre doing, they will use it against you and they will destroy you. Period. Have your closets clean. Otherwise your family will be on the frontline and your family will be destroyed as well. As his family will. He has to make the choice. I believe hes going to Princeton. Congratulations on another lucky Obama winner.
Later in the show, Glenn explained that this incident also serves to discredit the military, something that Glenn believes is necessary to destabilize a country.
So if youre trying to take over the United States and have a revolution, how do ‑‑ what do you need? You have to have the media. Well, you got that one. Have to have the education system. You got that one. Have to have the government, have to have leaders in top of the government. You got that. And you have to have the military, Glenn explained.
Let me tell you something: Whats happening right now, Petraeus story is not over. Petraeus is going to lose more and more credibility.
The media loves a good sex story unless its about a liberal and then its their private business. But if its about a conservative and if its about a military hero, they love a good sex story. So the media will run with this until there is just no more running with it. And they will destroy, he said. Right now you think of General Petraeus with all of those ribbons on. Soon all you will think of him is a guy who was doing something nasty underneath his desk. And no one will listen to him.
General Petraeus, you have one option: You go nuclear right now, my friend. That is your only option: Mutually assured destruction. And they dont mind it. They dont mind it. They will push every damn button.
Somebody better stand up.
no fbi agents no cia agents no military no justice dept???
and a few weeks ago or less, Drudge had a teaser out of a big sex scandal that was going to break....
Yeah, Glenn - as long as that somebody isn't you.
But you do a nice song and dance, I'll give you that.
What a farce.
Except for the Lord...we are alone.
Glenn couldn’t do any more than he already does.. As for a hero to step forward, perhaps that former Secret Service agent who ‘committed suicide in his car by carbon monoxide poisoning’ 5 days before the election was a would-be hero cut down by the regime. Maybe Hillary left town out of FEAR, not just because she’s complicit. Remember Ron Brown!!
Would Petraeus have been a candidate to make all conservatives swoon? It’s strange to me that the left and certain pundits are dancing around like they took down our greatest potential presidential candidate, or the conservative movement’s leader.
Beck has put himself and his family in harm’s way, I believe more than we’ll ever know. Can you imagine the emails he has received?
The media hopes to blur this so Benghazi was Patreus’ fault, not Obama’s or Clintons. Two birds. One stone.
Glenn Beck, for the past 4 years, has been knocking himself out trying to educate the sheeple of this nation who 0bama is, his connections to very dangerous people and has made predictions,that have come to pass and you think he hasn’t stuck his neck out? I think he lives in peril every day. He gets emotional to be sure, but you cannot doubt he loves this nation and he has values and is a good man. If folks out there would have listened to him instead of poopooing him things could well be different. Now America is going to have to learn the hard way. Dark days are upon us.
Massive eye roll.
That turned out to be Mendendez or however his name is spelled.
The NJ democrat Senator.
Yes, yes..he wants them all to become Mormons blah blah blah
Please point out what in my post leads you to that conclusion?
The part that says svcw.
