    Glenn Beck once again blasted critics of his full-throated defense of Facebook – this time by calling out Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report for being biased against Hillary Clinton. Beck has been attacking Facebook’s conservative critics ever since the damage control meeting he and 16 other conservatives had with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week following reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the site’s news curators actively suppress conservative stories in their “trending” news section while simultaneously boosting the signal of leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter. Beck, who has become Zuckerberg’s staunchest defender on the right, took to...
  • Glenn Beck: ‘Donald Trump Is Going to Be the Next President’ (30% of Reagan Dems going GOP)

    05/11/2016 6:40:38 PM PDT · by drewh · 67 replies
    Vociferous Donald Trump critic Glenn Beck predicted on his radio show today that Donald Trump would become the next president of the United States. Beck’s prediction was all the more remarkable because of his vehement opposition to the New York real estate mogul. Below is the rush transcript of Beck’s comments from his website: GLENN: Hello, America. I’m going to make a prediction about Donald Trump. I could say he’s going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that’s obviously a foregone conclusion. Here’s my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to...

    Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and often others. People with narcissistic personality disorder are characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance. They have a sense of entitlement and demonstrate grandiosity in their beliefs and behavior. They have a strong need for admiration, but lack feelings of empathy. In addition to these symptoms, the person may display arrogance, show superiority, and seek power. The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to...

    Conservative TV personality Glenn Beck had a funny way of defending his main squeeze Ted Cruz on his program Monday morning. He burst out laughing and said, “I have to tell you, it’s been a hard Monday morning. We were all been raped by Ted Cruz.” Beck was referring to himself and his male colleagues. Realizing that starting out the show with a fake rape scene was probably in poor taste, he promised viewers they’d clean themselves up and try to do a show without “all the Latin lovin’.” But first Beck needs a post-coital smoke. “I need a cigarette,”...

    Breitbart published an article called “Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals,” which quoted Baylor professor Dr. Thomas S. Kidd as saying, “There are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump, but God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative, either.” Beck took this to heart and spent quite a while clapping back at them on his show today. Beck’s devotion to Cruz certainly is religious. He has fasted for the man. He has foretold violence if Cruz is not elected. He even theorized that God killed Justice Antonin...

    It is obvious that Obama is either treasonous or unfit to serve because of his love and loyalty to Islam (the enemy) or just plain incompetence. He admits that our country is under sustained attack, but refuses to recognize the obvious enemy (aiding and abetting) and refuses to secure the borders, secure the nation, or even enforce the law, and instead wants to unconstitutionally disarm we the people. These are treasonous acts during wartime. Impeach and remove or force him to resign ala Richard Nixon. IMPEACH THE BASTARD!!

    Psychopath and sociopath are popular psychology terms to describe violent monsters born of our worst nightmares. Think Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs (1991), Norman Bates in Psycho (1960) and Annie Wilkes in Misery (1990). In making these characters famous, popular culture has also burned the words used to describe them into our collective consciousness. Most of us, fortunately, will never meet a Hannibal Lecter, but psychopaths and sociopaths certainly do exist. And they hide among us. Sometimes as the most successful people in society because they’re often ruthless, callous and superficially charming, while having little or no regard...

    It is safe to say that most politicians these days could be diagnosed with a range of mental conditions, and many would likely be labeled sociopaths or psychopaths. The terms psychopath and sociopath are often used interchangeably, even by mental health professionals. The symptoms are somewhat consistent between the two: lack of conscience, no moral compass, manipulative, low range of emotions, interpersonally insensitive. The psychopath is deadly. He is well spoken, charismatic, fearless, controlling, socially potent, a habitual liar, calm to a disturbing degree in the face of chaos and cold hearted. He is a master at blaming others. David...

    Over the years, we have been struck repeatedly by how often President Obama is wrong. Not how often we disagree with him, but how often he is just plain wrong, on matters of history, science and so on. Obama has a blithe willingness to assert false propositions of fact, apparently without fear of correction. I suppose that is because the Democratic press has little incentive to point out his errors. Let’s note two instances from a single town hall appearance in South Carolina yesterday. The first related to climate. Obama, while defending his Keystone veto, said: The pattern overall is...

The article, called “No, we don’t literally want to ban men. But 2014 was the year women got even,” begins with a sarcastic opening paragraph mocking males. It quickly descends further into madness. In the second paragraph, Zimmerman states that “misandry (the hatred of men) had a big year, too, but it looked a little different. For us, it was a tool to help create a less oppressive future.” Zimmerman...

One of them was burned alive. A source said the regime is preparing a third purge of officials who supported Jang. The first purge involved his family, relatives and high-ranking party officials, while the second purge underway. The third will target his supporters in provincial chapters of the Workers Party. The source said Jang's elder sister Kye-sun and her husband and ambassador to Cuba Jon...

    Top 10 psychopathic professions: CEO, lawyer — then media, twice By Cheryl K. Chumley The Washington Times Friday, March 21, 2014 More psychopaths are CEOs than any other profession, according to an author who spent time researching the common denominators between successful people and sanity. Psychopaths aren't necessarily ax murderers, as Time noted. The clinical diagnosis refers to those who have shallow emotions or who lack empathy and guilt, are coldhearted, superficial, manipulative, impulsive or irresponsible. And with that definition, it seems the corporate world has its fair share. In what's been billed as one of the most overlooked books...

    Canadian researchers have confirmed what most people suspected all along: that internet trolls are archetypal Machiavellian sadists. In a survey conducted by the group of psychologists, people who partake in so-called trolling online showed signs of sadism, psychopathy, and were Machiavellian in their manipulation of others and their disregard for morality. The researchers defined online trolling as “the practice of behaving in a deceptive, destructive, or disruptive manner in a social setting on the Internet” for no purpose other than their pleasure. …

    SEATTLE (AP) — President Barack Obama offered a rare self-assessment Sunday night while criticizing congressional Republicans as an “impediment” to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are “more focused on positioning themselves for the next election.” “I’m not a particularly ideological person,” Obama said, somewhat echoing a statement he made earlier this month during a speech campaigning for then-candidate for Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe (“There are very real consequences when you operate ideologically, the way some...

    We’re all a teensy bit mad, but how many true psychopaths do we have among us? Apparently, more than you think. “Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial character, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality,” explains Eric Barker, in The Week. Now, think about all the people who might fit that description. Then, compare it to the list psychologist Kevin Dutton compiled in The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers...

    Obama’s first two presidential debates with Romney gave us another look deep into his mind – into a continued confession which he simply cannot stop himself from making. From my experience as a forensic profiler, I know when a guilty person starts to break. Law enforcement describes how guilty suspects show signs of cracking during an interrogation – and they push on those weaknesses. We can view Obama’s poor performance during the first presidential debate with Romney on Oct. 3 in a similar way. The debate – a symbolic interrogation – was the first time Obama had faced tough questions...

    Answer--Very gently. Chris Duane and Kerry Lutz sit down for a discussion of psychopaths and what to do about them. We've all probably encountered them at work, in government, in friendships or perhaps even had a relationship with one. Chris explains how to identify them and what you can do. Sometimes it's best to flee. Other times confrontation works and then perhaps the most effective method is simply ignoring them. It all depends upon the situation you find yourself in. But whatever you do, you must get away from them if at all possible. The history of politics and government...

    Explosive accounts of Casey Anthony's life and her version of what happened to her daughter Caylee Marie almost four years ago were revealed today when a judge unsealed two never-before-seen depositions from doctors who conducted psychological evaluations on the mother before her murder trial. The depositions of Dr. Jeffrey Danziger and Dr. William Weitz vividly describe what Anthony told her doctors about alleged sexual abuse by her father and the alleged drowning death of her 2-year-old daughter in the summer of 2008. The experts' statements are significant because they represent the most recent version of Anthony's story about what happened...
