Skip to comments.Would Someone Please Fill Me in on the Bombshell Glenn Beck Promised?
Posted on 06/15/2013 9:42:51 AM PDT by man_in_tx
During his radio broadcast today on The Blaze network, conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck promised some big news would rock this "country in the next 24 hours" and "take down pretty much the whole power structure" (video below).
.... Excerpt only.

Turns out it was just a bombshell, without any explosive charge or detonator.
Reportedly, there is something he is claiming will be a big deal, but doesn't have a short timeline to release it.
I read a thread on that yesterday and think I remember the big bomb announcement was put off. Maybe someone who knows more will post.
Beck is like the birther sheriff (I like that sheriff, however...), and Trump. All three promise but it doesn’t happen.
The first, if proven, has the potential to bring down the ruling power structure. The second is SOP for the blackmailable Boehner. The puppet masters don't allow anyone, and I mean anyone including the Bush family, to have positions of power unless they are loyal to the masters first.
And one last note: when you excerpt from a Beck quote, it is a good idea to include the entire paragraph, since leaving out a 'could' or 'should' in order to further marginalize Beck is a trait now well identified at FR. The rodeo clown makes dumb enough proclamations without selectively quoting parts of his paragraphs in order to sevre the character assassins further.
Why would he haul off and say such a thing and then jerk everyone around for the next two days afterwards with uh... (expletive deleted) nothing.
Beck is a professional bloviator - someone who has convinced some fool to pay him big bucks to come on several days a week and blow a lot of hot air, whether anything is happening or not and whether he actually has any pertinent information to add to current debates. Since Beck evidently has nothing to add, he had to produce a “big bombshell” to spur ratings. When the time arrived for the “big bombshell”, well it was delayed, tune in next week, and by all means, keep listening and in the meantime ‘Drink your Ovaltine’.
King, Bachmann and Gohmert explained their opposition to the current immigration reform effort on Becks TV program Thursday night, saying that a Trojan horse bill is in the works to essentially trick the GOP into voting for amnesty for illegal immigrants and ensuring a permanent voting block for progressives and Democrats.
In a word: HUH? The king is still in place so I’m thinking another “revelation that will bring down this administration” didn’t have much substance.
How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
I’ll tell you in 24 hours!
Beck is about to jump the shark so far as I'm concerned, a victim of his own penchant for drama.
Then again if something big happens next week maybe he'll say I told you so. I'm willing to wait it out.
However, I'm not going to waste any time listening to Beck and his ADD-affected drama until he makes good. I'll be listening to another guy who closed his show Friday by saying he had no idea what the cause was right then, but that he'd be examining what it could be to cause the eGOP to so desperately want amnesty right now.
(What $$$ could it $$ ever be $$$ ??? )
Listen to another guy next week to hear this question addressed and maybe get some useful, newsworthy facts.
I’m sorry but why so much attention to this windbag. He’s like a good carny. He draws us into his carnival tent promising us something powerful and earth shattering and then when we get in it’s a big dud! You guys can waste your time listening to that fool but it’s time to put him on the back burner with Trump. All you’re doing is making him wealthy by buying his books and other materials he puts out.
In this video which I think is from yesterday, he gives the Book of Mormon as God’s book and presents it and Mormonism to the American people to replace the Bible and Christianity.

Please clarify? I took pains to excerpt the article’s first paragraph in its entirety. I just looked at the article, and — yes — I copied and pasted the first FULL paragraph, and ONLY the first full paragraph, lest I run into issues with the Admins.
Beck seems to be stealing the techniques of Richard C. Hoaglund.
Drudge did a “shake the world’s foundations” ploy years ago. He hit on it for a while and then went silent. I got on his radio show and asked him what was up. He wouldn’t say other than “the story is still out there” (?) and I never heard another thing about it.
I too write a blog page. You can access it via my profile page. I don't pimp it with excerpts in FR thread posts.
Gosh...it seems no one is concerned about a permanent progressive society and the fact that 70-odd congresscritters may actually revolt against the cry-baby Boehner.
Sorry for the interruption...now back to the Bash Beck session...
Stories are a dime a dozen
true stories are harder to come by
provable stories are a whole nother ball game
1. The revelation and proof that most of Congress (& Chief Justice Roberts) are being blackmailed into submission by NSA snooping into their digital lives. Maybe even includes media personalities.
2. Based on what Pat said, the whole birther issue is finally going to become main stream news, with undeniable proof. This would be HUGH news for Beck, since he is the quintessential anti-birther.
Beck is great about 75% of the time. The rest of the time, I hate him! Glenn the prophet, Glenn the crybaby, Glenn the drama queen, Glenn the voice of God, Glenn the I said that 2 years ago, right (I pay your salary) Pat, Glenn the Mormon, .....
let me reduce that to 50%.
I lost the Pat Dollard link. Do you have it so I can reference it on future threads? Thanx ... Having been a researcher feeding stuff to Beck a few years ago (freelance), I respect the team of folks Glenn has working for him. Their work on the czars and Jones types was first rate and very informative, even though the mainstream enemy media/mendacitia refused to report the commies filling the WH.
I vote for number one.
Is the link to your blog?
Reportedly, there is something he is claiming will be a big deal, but doesn't have a short timeline to release it."
I saw that thread. The person who claimed Beck was the victim of a hoax apologized later and said he was mistaken.
Once again, Beck erupts in hysteria & hyperbole, and lets the issue drop when he can't produce. The folks who still fall for it are left gasping and outraged.
Is the link to your blog?
What you posted at FR is a very carefully excerpted portion. In good blogpimp style, you now point readers to go to your blog for the full paragraph. I have zero respect for such tactics.
If you are talking to me, you do err, FRiend.
If you are capable of reading at a third-grade level, you will note that the post in question points to
That is not my blog. I do not write for that blog. I do not know who writes for that blog.
The one paragraph post is done to avoid hits by the Admins when “forbidden” sources are cited at length. That is how I post. Nothing sinister. Nothing “very carefully” done, other than quoting only the first paragraph (in its entirety) of the article.
Again, if you are talking to me, are you big enough to apologize to me publicly in this forum for your false accusation?
Glenn was steering people to Bishop Mittens via smearing Newt and in other ways, too. He’s sneaky.
I recall that within the first couple of days after Bengazi Beck had a story that sources told him that the reason the Ambassador was in Bengazi and the CIA was involved was because the US. was involved in providing arms clandestinely to rebels in the Arab Spring and the Turkish ambassador was there because arms were being funneled through Turkey to Syrian rebels.
No one else was coming forward with this story at the time. However, the more information that comes out seems to confirm the basic outlines of the Beck story and the accuracy of his source.
I’m sorry, you’ll have to buy Glenns new book or subscribe to his pay-per-view only t.v. show if you want to find out the HIGHLY CRITICAL, important news you CANNOT miss, and what you can do about it!
Something about Glenn Beck has always rubbed me the wrong way for a long time and I’ve said so many times on FR. Don’t trust him. Interesting interview with Breitbart. Had never heard that. Thanks for posting.
Beck better have something big MONDAY! If he doesn’t, it will be the LAST time I will listen to him. You can’t keep doing this sort of thing or any credibility you have will vanish away. Glad he moved to Texas—the only state big enough for his ego.
I had loved Glenn Beck, I can’t say that I’ve totally given him up but I don’t think he compares to Breitbart in the least.
We lost much when we lost Breitbart, I miss him.
Breitbart was a card, he was real. He was what he was and that was it. I like that.
He wasn’t fake but he sure was passionate.
I agree with what you say about Breitbart...he felt genuine to me...and real passion oozing out of him. I know you kinda like some things about Beck, but get the Charlatan/huckster feel from him. Have from the beginning.
That's because he meant 24 BUSINESS HOURS.
I started to get that 2012-ish. I don’t write him completely off because he still delivers on some stuff. Sometimes one must sift. He no longer gets my money, though.
Are you Michael? Without further data I do not deem you worth an apology. Maybe more data will change my mind. If it is not your blog, how did you find such an esoteric blog and post a link to it using the first paragraph which is so flawed in it’s insinuation?
When he started yesterday’s show, he went off about blogs and such being fools, that all he was talking about was the 70 Republicans being threatened if they didn’t vote for immigration reform. He compared them to Kurds standing up to Sadam, claiming that these 70 Republicans’ very lives were in danger.
He made it sound like some sort of bombshell but while important, that was nothing. We all know what’s happening with “immigration reform”..
If nothing else, your reply is good for a laugh!
You don’t need any more data. It is simply not my blog, and I believe you know that, now that I have called you out on your ridiculously risible post.
It is still not too late to apologize.
Or, perhaps you are just hurt that my post put Glenn Beck in a less-than-favorable light?
Thanks for that link. Always good to hear Breitbart. Beck's dead to me, too.
What did Pat say that makes you think it could be Obama’s eligibility?
Since there has been no replies or new threads since I checked this last night, I think we can safely assume that Beck was talking out his @$$ again.
Why am I not surprised?
