The Unprecedented, Powerful Coalition Three Major Conservative Personalities Are Building
The Blaze ^ | Jason Howerton

The Unprecedented, Powerful Coalition Three Major Conservative Personalities Are Building Likely Has the Establishment Terrified

Two heads are better than one, as the old saying goes. That surely means that three heads are even better.

If there’s any truth to that saying, the establishment in Washington and progressives everywhere are likely none too pleased to hear that conservative personalities Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity are on the same page and joining forces to help the country get back on what they feel is the right path.

After previously allowing themselves to be caught up in a “stupid” competitive feud in talk radio, Beck revealed on his radio show Thursday that he has spoken with Levin and Hannity and they are all ready to start to “move together.”

“I am grateful to this audience. I am grateful for you. There was a stupid feud, and the three of us, Sean, and Mark and I, have talked about it,” Beck explained. “And we know where it came from, and we know who was feeding us lies about each other. And this individual just expected that if they fed us enough lies about each other, we would never talk to each other. And that way he would be able to divide us and keep the Tea Party movement at bay and control it as much as he could or destroy it. And we were foolish.”

Beck also read a letter he wrote to Levin on his radio show Thursday:

Beck is not a conservative although he tries to fool conservatives.

Several years ago, I turned off talk radio. I haven’t watched television “news” in years.

I still belong to Rush 24/12 and read his newsletters—but the talk shows got to be more about the hosts and less about the issues and what we could do to either help or change the situation.

I’m left getting all my news from this website. Without FR, I probably be more of a sheeple than anything else.

Time to send MR. JR another donation!

He may not be a perfect conservative, but he doesn’t believe in enslaving the people through the government.

It's a good point, but I think it is not so much that he is not a conservative, but rather that he has a naive streak in that he is always dreaming about a right wing version of kum-by-ya.

What I want to know is who they are saying was spreading lies among them and I wonder if Bill O'Reilly or Mike Weiner (Savage) was involved?

I guess you’re not a listener then. Of course NO ONE will satisfy everyone. What is it? Is he too fat, too rich, does his religion turn you off?
You don’t have to like him to hear his message. He is saying we have to consolidate our forces in order to make a difference.
He is a solid Conservative, with a message that if we don’t quit bickering amongst ourselves and stand together, we won’t stand at all.
We need to put the petty differences aside and speak with one voice.

The problem is that you have one group of people willing to excuse/accept damn near anything, who still demand they be recognized as conservatives.

First things first. We as a movement have to decide what we believe. Do we believe as many supposedly on the right, that principles don’t matter? That so called ‘purists” are the problem?How do we make collective progress when we can’t even sort ourselves out?

Thats why we have to, first and foremost, ‘sort ourselves out’. Then we can work on sorting this mess out.

We have to believe in something. I propose the BOR/Constitution and example of our founders, since the more we poo-poo their very words, the farther we get from success.

For years ‘we’ were against anyone that fell below the ‘80%” standard. Why has that gone away? Is it so radical a notion that 80% with us is a good thing? That someone that can’t even meet that on big issues is a bad hook to hang your hat on?

For years we were against Libs that worked against border security, for illegals and against our military. Why are we at the point that supposed right wingers run around for Republicans who do the same damn thing? Has anyone actually sat down and thought this simple concept through?

If we want good people, we need to empower good people, not make excuses for human garbage because “the Dem is worse”. No, the Dem isn’t worse. Pulling knives out of your back is a far more painful experience than seeing the knife coming and avoiding it.

Anyone that finds a problem with the above logic, let me know.

I wonder how much FR figures in the show prep for all these talk radio guys.. EVERYTHING they discuss has already been hashed over on FR by 8am. True, Rush has his own spin, terrific spin on any subject but thanks to Free Republic, by noon it is old news to me.

As for TV, I cut that crap 20 years ago. Just started listening to talk radio a few months ago and am ADDICTED to Hannity's program, especially the segment with Jamie Dupree each day.

I worked in media (print/internet) professionally for years. I assure you that all the names on the right (and left to be honest) either personally read, or have their people read FR. I absolutely assure you. Because anyone in that business (news opinion) that wants to be successful goes to the source of any given issue. And as they are in the “conservative” business specifically, FR is and has been where much of that opinion is formed whether any of them want to admit it on air or not.

Beck and Hannity are onboard Levin's Liberty Amendments. Rush expressed support when the book was released, but has said little about it since. Like the rest of talk radio, Rush pontificates on the modern American Police State, but what he hasn't done is promote the only peaceful means we have to possibly get out of our mess. I suspect he soon will.

What is needed after the big four start singing from the same sheet of music is the support of a major politician.

Before the 2016 primary process gets going, I suspect and hope Ted Cruz calls for an Article V amendment convention. He understands America's first principles as well as any scholar and knows we must return to them.

Marx cannot be indefinitely grafted onto Madison.

If/when he does, it will suck the oxygen from all else and force our nation to address the crisis.

What many people don’t think about is that all the big names are just regular people. They don’t have any special knowledge. Just a gift for presentation. To be sure, they are smart. But no man is an island.

When I firse began in the Motorspoers section of the biz, I was astounded to find that my ‘competitors’ were reading my stuff. Many of these people were people I had grown up reading and ‘disecting’. And it was humbling. Not that I was the greatest thing in the world, but that’s what you HAVE to do. You have to learn and UNDERSTAND what is going on in your area of ‘expertise’. And whether you are or you aren’t, the readers think you are. They have to or they go read/listen/watch someone they believe is.

I was fortunate to have one of the greats as a mentor. Rick Sieman of Dirt Bike magazine fame (if you are into that sort of thing, then you know of him). And he understood how the system worked inside out. It’s real simple. But few wants to believe they are a hugely contributing part of fame for the big names. If they did, it would take the magic away.

I agree. I can't listen to any of them anymore. The same rah rah and 50 more reasons to hate obammy. I don't need any more reason to detest the little poser.

Plus there are more and more commercials. It used to be a show started on the hour or half-hour, now they start 5 minutes after to cram in more commercial time.

This smacks more of self-preservation than anything. Hannity lost his time slot to Savage, Beck is more on the net than anything, and Levin is a second tier talk show host playing to a shrinking audience.

Talk radio is a dying demographic. Most people go on the net for their news. It’s faster, more easily tailored to your tastes, and the commercials are largely avoidable.

Pretty much, although I don’t think that’s as true as it was say 4-6 years ago. I mean you could see the cycle. Posted on FR then 1-2 days later it was being talked about by the talking heads.

FR has slowed down a lot since then. There was a time when I didn’t bother to read drudge because FR was faster at picking it up. If it was interesting and FR had missed it, a FReeper would post it within 10 minutes of it hitting drudge anyway.

True. I’ve listened to all in the past. I still listen to Levin on rare occasions. But frankly I got tired of so-called “conservative” talk radio carrying water for the gop wing of the uniparty without questioning what those same people were doing to the country in general, and conservatism in particular. The talk radio schtick gets tiresome.

At this point the ‘net is just much faster and more efficient. If any of these guys say something unique or of interest, I’ll read about it. I can read what interests me and just skip the rest.

I’ve noticed as well. I think that has been because FR has been slowing down and is less of a timely resource. I now regularly post articles from say drudge that some other FReeper in the past would have been on top of like white on rice.

FR just isn’t as popular as it once was. Conservatism in general has been taking it’s hits to be sure. A lot of who I would call “A-list” posters have moved on. And let’s be frank: too many zots of those who strayed from the ever changing orthodoxy have left FR poorer as a result.

It started before that. I think the turning point was the “moth thread” that ensnared supporters of rudy guiuliani. We lost a lot of FReepers over that. Not so much due to the relative handful that were zotted, but due to the disgust of other FReepers at what they felt was a heavy handed response.

I think things are going to get worse because the debt and spending in Washington are unsustainable.

We are the beginning of where places like Italy, Spain and Greece have gone in recent years. The major parties have begun a process of raising taxes and cutting spending as in the Murray-Ryan budget deal in December.

They created new taxes called “fees” for airline flights.
They cut military pensions and extended unemployment.

Now the new food stamp bill has cuts in it.

The Right and the Left are going to get increasingly upset by this new pattern of “bipartisan” governance.

People will be wondering whether third parties of the Right and Left should be formed.

I would say that Beck, Levin and Hannity are the axis of right wing Kumbaya.

Even though I don’t personally care for Mark Levin of the three he is the most conservative and I would say the most thoughtful. His main problem is that once he gets an idea into his head he can never admit it might be wrong. And then he has to snark anybody who disagrees.

Hannity and Beck are entertainers. They are both still in love with Mitt. They will fall for whichever moderate runs in 2016. My guess is once Jeb Bush and Crispy fall away they will zero in on Scott Walker. They will never push Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.
