Vanity: Is Beck To Obama What Drudge Was To Clinton?
Glenn Beck ^

Posted on 04/20/2013 1:46:02 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

It was in the middle of a Democrat President's second term. Emboldened by re-election, he began to deceive the American people on a wide range of issues. He felt there was nothing that could touch him. In fact he blatantly lied to the American people time and time again feeling as if he could get away with anything.

But then it all went wrong. A citizen journalist who had taken jobs at 7-11, Mcdonalds and grocery stores got tired of the lies, and decided he had enough. He waited for the next lie to happen. And when it did, Matthew Nathan "Matt" Drudge took advantage and launched his career on the back of a Bill Clinton lie. In 1998, Drudge gained popularity when he was the first outlet to break the news that later became the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999. Requiring a two-thirds majority for a conviction, only 50 senators (out of 100) voted guilty on the obstruction charge and 45 on the perjury charge. The Senate was 17 votes short of removing Clinton from office.

Today we have a similar situation. A President in the middle of his second term, feeling emboldened by a reelection victory who has possibly bitten off more than he can chew. And now we have another Patriot, Glenn Edward Lee Beck, attempting to launch his own network. This time it could be on the back of a lie or lies by one Barack Obama.

We will find out Monday.

Crazy to think we were that close to removing Clinton from office.

Gore would have moved into the presidency. And Bush would have had a much harder time getting elected. Maybe.

Oh how for a few votes things might look much different!

This is true!

What Drudge was to Clinton.. launched him.. and he’s been going at it for 15 to 20 years.

No one lies forever and that MUCH and gets away with it. I am reminded of the old Johnny Cash song.

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut ‘em down
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut ‘em down

Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
My head’s been wet with the midnight dew
I’ve been down on bended knee talkin’ to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel’s feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, “John go do My will!”

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut ‘em down
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut ‘em down

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin’ in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut you down
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut you down
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut you down

I have to agree with you MestaMachine. He made this sound like a HUGH and SERIES scoop.

He’s gotta deliver the goods and I think he will. How much it’s covered and the MSM trying to bury it will be another issue.

Beck was solely responsible for getting rid of Van the Man Jones.

He's done a lot of great work. I'm sure the White House monitored his Fox broadcasts. He was occupying their heads, rent free.

I believe he’s already on certain networks.

He’ll get there. And it will be greatness.

In fact imagine if he starts taking the audience away from Fox. LOL!

It would force Fox to keep it’s crazies, like Shep, in check.

Gore would have moved into the presidency. And Bush would have had a much harder time getting elected. Maybe.

I said the same thing back then and pointed out that Demo strategists should have put on their "statesman" suits to give the word to Billy Jeff that he ought to fall on his sword for the good of the party. While that might have meant we'd have seen Gore elected in 2000, it's far from certain.

I have heard Beck say he has breaking information......and he will reveal it soon - yawn.
It never has been or he is behind the curve - yawn.
If he has information he should just say it or - yawn.
And no Beck is nothing like Drudge.

Nothing happened to Clinton. He has gone on to become father of the year and earn millions in speaking fees. His wife rode his coat tails into a powerful position in the Senate, went on to be SoS and is now poised to run for president.

I really hope Obama fairs worse than Clinton.

I don’t think so. Beck has a team of security guards and is ready for it.

PLUS, he was given these documents by 6 Senators. Those Senators want this exposed. I have a feeling they are somehow ensuring his safety.

Beck is the originating source of blatantly false rumormongering too often.
Drudge made a branding decision very early on to not be THE SOURCE of unsubstantiated, politically motivated attacks across the aisle. That isn’t to say that Drudge didn’t give precedent to the likes of Bachelor, Fund, Klayman, etc to display Matt’s own political bias.

But as seen this week, Beck is repeatedly blowing smoke that is originating out of his own ass, which over time partially or completely discredits himself, his employees, his contributors, and his media outlet in the eyes of sensible media consumers in the world.

Even thought there is much evidence of Fraud in Obama’s documents Beck denies it all. I lost my respect for him after that. Notice how Glenn beck has no interest in the case put forth by Sheriff Joe’s investigative team.

You sure are correct.

I liked the history lessons Beck gave when he was on Fox but much of his current rhetoric is lame and I rarely listen to him any more.

This has to be a real game changer or Beck should be finished.

WARNING: Laws being written to screw you.

I work on a security commission and I've just received word to start campaigning on a campaign we've been working on for the last two months and now it all makes sense.

I'll keep it as short can I can.

They're going to pin this event on a male late teens to early 20s and say he did it because he's unstable. They are going to find firearms and a NRA book in his home. They are going to say he used reloading powder for the explosion and that reloading powder shouldn't be for sale to the public. They are then going to say that because the powder in ammunition can be used for explosions that the number of rounds you can buy should be limited and taxed to help pay for these events.

I can't do anything or I'll lose my job and possibly face criminals charges. Please don't let them get away with it. They won't find the suspect till later this week and the raid is issued to occur on Friday. This was a staged event. The people hurt are real but the event was planned. Don't let them hurt our rights.

I'm at work so I used a copy of a picture from another thread. Also please don't mention me. It will seriously hurt me.
