Glenn Beck

Posted on 01/29/2012 6:35:42 AM PST by MSGT1

Why is Glenn Beck lying to destroy Newt?? Glenn has voiced support for Santorum while his actions are pushing Mitt. On his propaganda page the blaze in one day he had 14 hit pieces on Newt, 9 puff pieces on Mitt and 2 stories mentioning Santorum {one of those could be considered negative}. The amount of dishonesty in those articles and his radio show is mind boggling. Glenn is abusing the trust people have placed in him and trying to get the most liberal candidate the nomination.

Newt was surging in Iowa so Glenn went scorched earth and by catching people by surprise, they fell back on their trust for Beck and gave Iowa to Santorum. By the time South Carolina rolled around people were seeing through Beck and Newt won. Going into Fl. Newt pulling ahead and Beck having used up his trust the baton was passed to Drudge and down goes Newt again.

Now why would Glenn do that?? Could it be as simple as this?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Horse_Prophecy

Breitbart was right and we could have saved a lot of grief had we listened to him. Glenn Beck hasn't been telling us what he was for but outright lying and attacking Newt and anyone that backs Newt. Beck is willing to destroy the election process using Alinsky tactics to get Mittens in. We have been had.

My goal isn't to flame but to cause thought. I know Beck has fans and I know he has FOLLOWERS. Followers can't be reasoned with. Man has a need for God and many times and for many reasons people try to deify other men. I suggest they draw closer to the real God.

I can lead you to knowledge but I can't make you think. I hope you take this and carefully consider this post. Accept it or dismiss it, it's cool. I expect some of you will not and will lash out. Let the games begin..

I noticed that, too.

But, to be honest, I can't quite think of any lies at the moment. But then, I haven't had my first cup of coffee yet this morning.

Maybe you can help me out a bit. Remind me what some of the lies are.

I'll be right back.

He’s a mormon....and they both can’t wait for Jesus to return to the US and rule from Missouri. Do you really think the Bible belt will vote for Mittens?

Why does so many so called Conservative talkers support Mitt?
Mitt is the John Edwards of the GOP. Slick smile, great hair and a highly polished sales pitch. But Mitt is a McCain style,plaid pants Republican.
I dont get it.

I don’t know if he is lying, as I have just seen quotes (can’t stand listening to him for too long - I don’t know/trust what his motives are). He does seem to be extreme in his hatred of Newt.

I don’t intend to demean LDS or any other faith, and I think it’s dangerous speculation to try to link Beck with some obscure notion in that religion.

Based on the way he presents himself on television it is my opinion that Glenn Beck has some mental health issues. I’ll leave it at that, as it’s pure speculation and I’m not an expert. But I don’t think he’s part of any conspiracy or anything else, he’s just “out there” in some of his beliefs and the way he presents them.

Glenn plays Newt’s own voice in previous sound bytes. I would love to hear what you consider lies.
I agree Romney would be a disaster for the republican party, like McCain would have been because his policies would not help America and many Americans would believe the left when they call Romney an extremist, which is ridiculous. Romney is a Rockefellor republican which is a far left leaning republican.

See my Mormon,Romney post today. I am convinced that the Mormon president and prophet is directly telling Mormons, such as Beck, Chaffetz, Bay Buchanan to go the distance for Romney. If you love your country, your children, your grandchildren and the culture of America, Vote Newt Gingrich.

I’ll say it again: Beck operates almost entirely from a Mormon perspective.

He doesn’t admit it but he appears to have claimed for himself the 1843 “White Horse” prophecy of Joseph Smith which states that when the US Constitution is “hanging by a thread,” the LDS Church will ride to the rescue “on a white horse.”

Therefore, Beck endorses a Mormon candidate.

I think he would have endorsed Willard before but he held off due to Jon Huntsman’s presence in the race. (likewise LDS)

IMHO, that is. (You can Google the White Horse prophecy. It should still be available)

As a matter of fact, if you go back to the recordings of JFK, he is to the right of the so called extremist right wing republican party. That is how far left this country has gone.
I no longer support the GOP but conservative values.

The best to debate zippy is Newt hands down. I think the rinos would be perfectly happy gaining the house and the senate at the expence of the presidency so they can keep thier game with the rats going. They are predicting I imagine a backlash if they nominate Mitt through the senate and house races putting them in charge of both houses while zippy rules by executive order, something he has tried tested the waters and It works well for him.

I hate to sound this way, but I strongly believe religion has a great deal to do with this.

Beck has drunk the Mormon Kool-Aid and is preaching the gospel of stashing preparedness daily.

That is fine. To each his or her own, but to destroy a fine man, a repentant man, for religious sake is not the "American" way. European, mid-evil European, sure, but not American! Our ancestors came to this country to escape that barbarous custom.

I am sure it will matter but it is sad that it does. That shows a lot of small minded people.
I would not vote for Mitt because he is an admitted progressive and moderate. We need conservative government but I am afraid it is too late. Unfunded liabilities could sink us. (and probably will)
I cannot understand how these democrat party and the left wing of the GOP can support the current policies in the federal gov’t. They know these policies are bad for us long term and continue to divert the attention of the average Americans, with the help of the media ! Very sad.

I may agree with every word you wrote, but the tone? Get over yourself.

Beck lost me as a listener when he implied the tea party must be voting for Newt because they are racist. He sees no problem with attacking the person of Newt calling him a dirt bag and aligning himself with Ann Coulter who calls him crazy. I find this vicious and he has caused me to tune out as a result. Whatever his reason for such a vicious attack, it tells me more about the attackers than the one they attack. As for Newt being nefarious (another adjective he used to describe Newt, I think Romney and Ron Paul who he would vote for instead of Newt have far more progressive tendancies and THAT IS WHY BECK IS HAVING A HISSY FIT. EVERYONE SEES THIS IS SO AND IS REJECTING HIS FAULTY AND VICIOUS NONSENSE. Newt went down in Iowa due to attack ads. Not due to Beck. Beck is losing all credibility and good will with his attacks on Newt. The less people listen to him...the more intense he gets and he will only kill his own reputation doing so.

You actually can play one’s own voice - but present it in a way that is indeed a lie. It’s called context, editing, etc. Rush exposed Elliot Abrams, who did the same thing, as a hug liar the other day..

But that’s not my main problem with Beck with regards to Newt. My main problem is that Beck demonstrates zero historical perspective on Newt. While Beck was in his dark period - admittedly useless due to drugs - Newt was helping preserve the Republic with the House take over in the 90’s.

So my beef with Beck is this: Ok Mr. Historian, why not give both sides? Why not look at what Newt has DONE as well as what Newt has SAID. The picture Beck has painted of Newt is totally misleading - and that is what we call “a lie.”

Wilsonian, FDR, ethics violations, everything Beck has said

I'm a big Newtie. But it's Newt his own self who called himself a "realpolitik Wilsonian.

It's Newt his own self who said repeatedly that FDR was the greatest President of the 20th centure.

The ethics violations charge is thrown about by all the media talking heads.

Newt has done a poor job of reminding people that he was hounded out of office by RATS filing one baseless charge after another and he was run out of town on a rail by spineless Republicans. You can't blame Beck for that.

But, just for the sake of argument, I'll give you that one. What else you got? What other lies has Beck been telling about Newt?

We are about to nominate Romney...a liberal Democrat to head our nation’s conservative party.

Just don’t tell anyone. No one in the media, nor GOP insiders seems to care. As long as Romney keeps the K Street gravy train going...how many trillions would a President Romney add to the debt?

BTW...it’s not being reported much...but India has agreed with Iran to stop trading in US dollars for oil. Both countries will only use gold.

Biggest story of the week that no one knows. Obama and Romney are taking the country down.

Just don’t tell the media.

This is very serious.....if his religion comes up in a major way (and it will-the dems have no qualms about it) the we will be toast. What happens when Obama is leading 60 to 40 percent over a guy the bible belt considers too ‘out there’? Does Newt then jump in 3rd party? I am seriously scared that the GOP is not taking his faith and the Bible belt’s eventual reaction to it seriously.
