Nice work ETL, but nobody wants to read such a long post, especially when it’s really off-topic, in that we already know that warming is and always has been bunk. This is about who Beck really is.

Please scroll back on my comments, fella.

Okay chicky, I did.

All I see are accusations without proof.

Care to get specific with some names and links?

You don' trust him for what? For POTUS, which he obviously is not running, the information he is presenting?

You keep saying that Glenn is out for Glenn, well yeah.

This Country is built on self reliance, in order to do that you have to look out for yourself because no one is going to do it for you.

Libs want others to take care of them, look out for them, Conservatives do it them selves and that means looking out for you own self interest, you seem to think that's a bad thing.

Amen, but I was referring to his critics.

Beck is filling a very large audience with info they're NOT getting anywhere else, certainly not from anyone with an audience approaching the size of his. And he knows how to draw attention to himself, and therefore this very important information. However, I do agree he acts a little too kooky at times, particularly the crying bits. But he doesn't seem to be doing that much anymore.

The point I’m attempting to make is if he or his staff are stealing information it needs to be made public by the person or persons offended. I honestly do not know if he does or has usfaced others work without citation. But any theft of should be addressed openly and with facts. I can’t believe the Fox legal staff would allow theft of intellectual property.

Glenn Beck is now a complete moron, I guess all those free books didn’t help all that much.

It's amazing how quickly you jump to a conclusion based on BOGUS information (debunked elsewhere on this forum).

None of my business if you enjoy doing such as that, but conclusion-jumping can be dangerous.

Gotta figure that Beck would make enemies. The GOP lapdogs are squealing because he’s a big meanie. The libtards are squealing because its what they do. The Birthers are squealing because he doesn’t agree. Several radio voices some popular and some nobodys are squealing because they don’t have his audience.

As for this global warming thing. LOL some folks just don’t care about reality. Beck broke a CFL bulb for earth day and slammed those people hard repeatedly.

If he wants to be green its his choice. He opposes cap and trade and all the green legislation the same way I do but that doesn’t mean I want to waste energy or pollute for the hell of it. Only morons do that.

Real conservative men don’t cry in public, they get the job done.

Tell that to General Norman Schwarzkopf:

he told Barbara Walters, who interviewed him on 20/20. "Any man who doesn't cry scares me a little."

I was simply trying to get a few facts out about GoreBull Warming, given that there is so much BS and misinformation out there about it. Besides the info was more intended for later reference, not to necessarily read on the spot. The article at the top clearly refers to Beck’s view on the subject.

Thanks for the nice words on the compilation. I’ll try to shrink the graphics so not to cause unnecessarily long download times for dial-ups.

I have never heard Glenn Beck even once proclaim that he favored a third party in the United States or that he believed in global warming and wanted the government involved with climate change. I'd be appreciative if anyone here might supply a direct quote to either effect. I'll wager you cannot.

Here’s the one topic I cited, in fact:

http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2010/01/atlas-exclusive-obama-organizing-for-communism-and-youth-corps-in-the-public-school-1.html

Now, go back and look at what he presented on TV the following week....WITHOUT ATTRIBUTION.

There are names and anything else you want to know, right there. And there is an additional update a day or so later, if I remember correctly.

Glenn Beck blatantly stole her story. Period. This is the reason that NO bloggers stick up for him. He steals their hard work. It’s no accident that GB has no friends in the blogosphere. His “fans” want to believe they don’t mention him because they are jealous of him. No, it’s because he takes the independent research and “scoops” of others and presents them as his own. The only reason they aren’t going after him now is because he is BIG and serving their purpose; he’s providing entertainment.

GB is not a traditional conservative. That is the point here....he is not self-reliant. Most days, he is a common thief, stealing the intellectual property of others. That’s what I am saying. That said, the one thing his staff did research, which was the whole Mao, Lenin, Marx etc thing, was well done. He’s entitled to take credit for that and should.

But when I see his show each day, most stuff I already knew. Because he’s grabbed it from others.

Sorry, hon.

Thanks. It underlines the poor dopeness of it all. Things have been warming up since the mini ice age (recently) and since the last glacial period in the more distant past, but even the peak warmth of this interglacial is the coolest of the past five interglacials including the one we’re in.

"This was debunked twice yesterday."

Uhh, no, not to the intelligent.

And, in your case, people who will only accept as truth, the things they happen to agree with, facts be damned.

"not to the intelligent"

I see you belong to the "learned elite" who are above all this, like the liberals and Rockefeller Republicans.

Your views are so stiff and hardened that no amount of information to the contrary can change your mind.

I sure hope I never get that way.

" I know that WND can stretch the facts to fit their purpose at times."

Usually an opinion expressed by non-Christians, and statists.

" So if Farah is a supporter of Romney as some have said and Farah is hitting back for Becks criticism of Romney..."

Surely you know that's nonsense! The only time Joe has said anything in any way positive about Romney was during the 2008 election when all the acceptable candidates had dropped out, and he was the best remaining choice to beat Obama.

That's your opinion and your entitled to it, I disagree.

Useful idiots was a term coined by Lenin for those who were fooled by his lies, I've yet to hear Glenn lie.

Outing communists and maoist from this administration is hardly being a useful idiot or a loon.

You cannot deny his theories are backed by a lot of facts and history, it's up to you if you choose not to listen.

Patton was considered loony when he wanted to invade Russia and so was Churchill in his time, history show they were right.

I'm not the one running around claiming that someone who has done several tv and radio shows debunking global warming is now an adherent.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. One heavily parsed and edited interview 2-3 times removed is not in any way "extraordinary".

Unfortunately the Alex Jones, Rev Manning listening crowd aren’t rational people and frankly don’t really care about telling the truth.

Just last night one of them said they didn’t really care if it was the truth or not because Beck had it coming to him for ridiculing the birthers.

You have to be kidding me, that link was posted Saturday, January 30, 2010, Glenn has been talking about this since last year.

Nice try, hon.

Furthermore, this blogger that you are using is using sources without recognition too.

Citing that socialist go after children is nothing new.

It was Hitler who said "give me the children and I'll rule the world"

Having video's of it on the Internet is the only thing that is new.

My friend you failed to respond to the questions I raised about Beck not being very wise by even allowing the interview.

Don’t get me wrong, I have never been a big fan of Beck, although most of my views if him comes from my gut check feeling.

Also I know Farah gets attacked by non Christians and as you know I am a Christian who defends my brothers. But I have seen WND make claims before that made me scratch my head. Although I think that is more of a problem of individuals who write for WND, and not so much a Joseph Farah problem.

My whole point is that when it comes to Beck, I just don’t know, but I need to know. Thus my statement I made when I pigged my list,

“Interesting hit peice on Glen Beck by WND. Is it true, is Beck moving to the left?”?

That being said, as of late he has really been stumbling quite a bit. Usually that only happens when the things you preach are not in your heart. So if they are not in his heart, what is?

No No No....

We have ALL been talking about this since last year. This is no surprise.

But Pamela Geller was the only one who had the definitive documents from the classroom and the parent willing to give out his name. He used HER documents, delivered snail mail to her ON HIS SHOW. Without attribution. I don’t give a shit if he was talking about it since 1964, chief, but the fact of the matter is that someone else had the story, the proof, and the graphics and he claimed it for himself. That doesn’t bother you?

You can’t be serious. He presented the story, the proof and graphics as his own. Really, you’re okay with that?

I have never heard Glenn say that the Republican Party is an "unacceptable choice". I have heard him say many times that Republicans are guilty of supporting some of the same destructive, Progressive policies as the Democrats. I have heard him castigate some leaders of the Republican Party for acting like Democrats. I have heard him plead with Republicans to adhere to principled, conservative ideas and to abandon Progressivism. But I have never heard Glenn Beck say that the Republican Party is no different than the Democrat Party or call for voters to abandon it.

Instead, he's pushing them to stand up for principle, rather than abandon it the way they have so often in recent years. I guarantee you that Glenn will support the Republican Party's congressional efforts this fall and its Presidential nominee in 2012 (unless it's John McCain, and that ain't happening, Lord help us...)
