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.
“....are they in CODE??? WHO cuts CAT HAIR???”
Yes, it’s code. “WHO cuts CAT HAIR???” is code for grooming hair not upon her head. Sex professionals have grooming this area down to an art form.
Not that I would know anything about that. I heard about it from a friend.
I do not have the time nor the inclination to learn this code.
Light bulb moment.
Now I have to go back and re-read those emails. eewww
With 141% turnouts in some places and district after district showing NO VOTES for Romney, I’m not convinced by a long shot that Romney did not actually win.
How about a Woodward, Bernstein and Petraeus show?
In what way do you think Beck is swaying the “sheeple”?
Since when is reporting on the facts and connecting the dots of corruption in our government, media and society, is “swaying” the people? The truth has no agenda....and no matter who tries to bash Beck, he’s out there doing what he can, with his own money, to make a difference and change things for the BETTER.
He’s a patriot. And I thank God we have someone like him, willing to speak out boldly and plainly, no matter the risk(s). We need MORE like him. IMO
Yes, he did. And humans tend to do, he gets things wrong sometimes. But, he did come out and vehemently apologized for being so off the mark on that.
I don’t think anyone that predicted Romney would win, accounted for ALL the voter fraud and the power of the Democrats to pull that off, though.
Ok. I get you like him.
There are far to many people who hang on every word he says as though he is a seer IE sheeple
Most of what he reports as new and exciting is already known, he may present it differently, he is not the be all to end all.
He is not using his own money as you say, he sells books, TV shows advertising.....the way you said that you would think he doesn’t ask for anything and pays for all his TV, internet time from his own pocket.
He is a successful man because he knows how to market
himself, that’s not bad, it’s just the way it is.
Say what you will, Glenn is the epitome of Capitalism. And yes, he pulls in a lot of money. But he uses A LOT of that money to help others.
His new tv network (The Blaze TV) is debt free. He started that with his own money, and YES, MOST of what he does now, he DOES pull from his OWN pocket.
If you have ever watched his show or his network, you would see him and his staff, are trying to expand from just media, so they can help get rid of the ENEMYdia and their completely bias untrue non-reporting. He’s trying to show people that EACH OF US can make a difference. In fact, his new clothing line of 1791, ALL PROCEEDS go to charity. But he’s trying to give entrepreneurs and inventors a place to start rebuilding America again.
And I realize he is not 100% correct and he certainly is not the end all to knowing everything. But I have certainly seen him come up with stuff WAY BEFORE others have. He isn’t afraid, at least, to speak out, and speak out often, when others won’t. Granted, there are many things I wish he would say and sometimes I don’t always agree with his take on things, but I have yet to hear anyone (save Rush sometimes) lay it out as well and as simply, as Beck has. He has a talent for telling a story in a way that is easy to understand and make more sense of.
Yes I like him, and I get a little tired of those who dislike him, calling him a shill, or making it out that he’s just pandering or trying to sway people or worse, that he’s a bad guy. I guess I don’t see where what he’s doing is bad....in any way. I only see it as being helpful and doing good works.
We want you to know that TheBlaze and the network itself is entirely different, and we will be in Cincinnati to unveil the next step on this Saturday and that one revolves around an action center, he revealed. I told you from the beginning were not going to be a place where you watch the news and you get pissed off about it. You dont watch the news and were going to give you things that you can do about it. This is not going to be some place to where you just dont have context and you dont have perspective and you dont have anything to do about it. Thats the difference.
Whats changing the world is the Tea Party. Whats changing the world is the 9/12 project. Whats changing the world are people online right now that are connecting with each other, Facebook, Twitter. Thats whats changing the world. And were not going to be somebody in an ivory tower that is pontificating. We are going to do our best to link with as many people as we can that think like us, that understand the world is being redesigned. And were going to redesign it with you, not with some giant global corporation that doesnt give a flying crap about you or the country. We have certain beliefs and standards, and our standards are, our beliefs are that America is good. It is a force for good. Our belief is in truth, not a party. But a principle.
I see you have joined Talisker in demonstrating your wisdom.
Or, I should have said, “your lack of” it.
If you don’t like Glen Beck why do you come to an article with his name in the title?
Don’t answer that! I know the answer. You just want to get a dig in to those who respect GB. As he says, “Trust, but verify” and that means do your own research and then you can present proof that what he says is wrong. You will be too late with that too. GB always makes on the air corrections as soon as he can if he has something wrong.
Agree 100% with #49.
And you would be wrong , it is insanity on my part ..... I look because I think this time Beck might have new information.....sigh he doesn’t
