When Glenn Beck is the voice of reason for the right wing, then you know they are in deeper trouble than they care to admit. I was pleasantly surprised to see him take a position of helping the 60,000 undocumented children who came across the U.S. border. Instead of joining the right wing chorus and blaming President Obama, Beck is willing to help those children in some way. That’s admirable. Yeah, I didn’t think that’s a word I would ever use to describe Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck on Tuesday announced that he will be bringing tractor-trailers full of food, water, teddy bears and soccer balls to McAllen, Texas on July 19 as a way to help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014.

Beck said he will be joined by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), and a number of pastors and rabbis.

“Through no fault of their own, they are caught in political crossfire,” Beck said of the children. “And while we continue to put pressure on Washington and change its course of lawlessness, we must also help. It is not either, or. It is both. We have to be active in the political game, and we must open our hearts.”

Beck said that “everybody” told him not to talk about other controversial issues, like the caliphate, in the past, and that he is hearing the same thing about his stance that we must care for the children who have crossed into America illegally.

“Everybody is telling me I’m seeing subscriptions down; I’m seeing Mercury One donations down,” Beck said, growing emotional. “I’m getting violent emails from people who say I’ve ‘betrayed the Republic.’ Whatever. I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this — and I have never, ever taken a position that is more right than this.”

“We’re going to fill some tractor-trailers with food, with water,” Beck said. “The churches have asked us if we could bring teddy bears and soccer balls, so we’ve loaded up a whole tractor-trailer of nothing but teddy bears and soccer balls. And then I’m going to go serve breakfast and lunch, and I’m going to help unload these trucks, hot meals for 3,000. That’s what we’re doing.” Source: The Blaze

So, instead of Caribou Barbie, half-term governor Sarah Palin screaming that it’s time to impeach President Obama for treating the U.S. like a “battered wife,” how about offering up some real solutions? Seems like Glenn Beck beat her and the rest of the right wingnuts to it.

President Obama Signed Fewer Executive Orders Than George W. Bush

So much for the right calling President Obama a ‘dictator’ for threatening the go unilaterally via executive orders. The freak out after his State of the Union address was just ridiculous. They literally lost their minds after President Obama said he would raise the minimum wage for government contractors to $10.10 via an executive order.

Glenn Beck, who recently declared his remorse for being a divider, boldly deemed President Obama to be “America’s first dictator.” Conservative radio host Mark Levin said Congress should pass a resolution nullifying the executive orders, as if the president were ever to sign such legislation.

Of course, Tea Party wingnut Michele Bachmann couldn’t pass this up. She pulled out the frivolous lawsuit card, declaring that House Republicans may try to sue President Obama. Bachmann said, “He may think he’s a king, he may declare himself king, but that’s not what he is under our Constitution.”

Mr. Green Eggs & Ham, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, “Over and over again this president has disregarded the law, has disregarded the Constitution and has asserted presidential power that simply doesn’t exist and that ought to worry regardless of whether you agree with his policies or not.”

OKAY….REALITY CHECK…..

To date, President Obama has only signed 168 executive orders, compared to 291 executive orders signed by his predecessor George W. Bush. Um, President Bush signed more orders in his first four years, 173, than President Obama has signed in just over five. But the truth hasn’t stopped the right wing freak-out in the past.

Glenn Beck Unhinged: “I Was Diane Sawyer’s Little Bitch”

Glenn Beck Unhinged: “I Was Diane Sawyer’s Little Bitch”

I am convinced, now more than ever, that Glenn Beck is a nutcase. On his radio show Wednesday morning, he recalled the time when he was employed by ABC News and became Diane Sawyer’s ‘little bitch” before their working relationship soured, Buzzfeed reports.

Beck claims that during his stint as an ABC contributor, Diane Sawyer would call him frequently to bounce ideas off him for improving television. He said “I was Diane Sawyer’s little bitch.” He recalled how she would  call and e-mail him so frequently his wife became concerned.

In his mind, the relationship went sour after the Council on American–Islamic Relations “went down to ABC” and demanded that the network stop giving him a platform or they will boycott ABC,  parent company Disney, and the Disney parks. Beck said, “All of the sudden, I can’t get Diane on the phone.”  “Eight months later, I have lunch with her, and she becomes the biggest bigot I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Nation of Islam Newspaper Calls Glenn Beck "Minion of the Synagogue of Satan," Vows Not to Allow Vicious Assaults on Leader Wikipedia

The Final Call, the Nation of Islam’s official newspaper, published an opinion article calling Glenn Beck a “minion of the synagogue of Satan” for his recent comments about their leader Louis Farrakhan, vowing it will “not allow such vicious assaults” on him.

Minister Farrakhan, speaking on assassinations of foreign leaders and wars started based upon lies, asserted:  “there are murderers in the White House.”  Mr. Beck in a bizarre inference to this statement made by Minister Farrakhan opined that it implied danger to President Obama from the Nation of Islam.

Mr. Beck is a minion of the Synagogue of Satan and as such represents the thinking of those used as their low-level pawns.  This group, Minister Farrakhan identified in his Saviours’ Day address, “…the Synagogue of Satan doesn’t mean that everybody in it is Jewish.  It’s a combination of people, Gentiles, Jews, Black and White that agree on an idea. And some on a lesser level do not know what those on the highest level are doing, but they always give you a noble reason for what they are doing.” Mr. Beck, a man who called President Obama a “racist” is now feigning concern for our Brother President.

Mr. Beck maliciously attacked not only the good name, reputation, integrity, and character of Minister Farrakhan, but also the over half century of redemptive work he has accomplished. The Holy Qur’an teaches Muslims to never be the aggressor in word or deed, but if attacked, we fight with those who fight with us.  Source: Final Call

Louis Farrakhan in the past called President Obama a “murderer” and an “assassin,” over the death of his friend Moammar Gahhafi. Beck addressed Farrakhan’s warning during his February 27th radio show. Glenn Beck is no paragon of virtue and has said some really crazy things, but so has Louis Farrakhan, so the fact that Abdul Arif Muhammad Esq., could take offense only to Glenn Beck’s comments and ignore those inflammatory statements coming from his beloved leader is just ridiculous.

Rick Santorum Says President Obama College Plan Aimed at “Indoctrination” of American Youth, But He Knows Best

Rick Santorum Says President Obama College Plan Aimed at "Indoctrination" of American Youth, But He Knows Best Wikipedia

GOP presidential “frontrunner” Rick Santorum went on Glenn Beck’s Internet-only television show to say that President Obama wants to “indoctrinate” our young people in his desire to see more young people go to college. Um, really? Was he indoctrinated when he went from undergraduate studies to law school? Rick Santorum has just proven once again, he will say whatever it takes to win, even if it goes against positions he has taken in the past.

DALLAS, Texas – Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Thursday that President Obama wants more young adults to go to college so they can undergo “indoctrination” to a secular world view.

In an hour-long interview with conservative television host Glenn Beck, Santorum also defended his record on abortion and his vote in favor of President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind education law.

On the president’s efforts to boost college attendance, Santorum said, “I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely … The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country.”

He claimed that “62 percent of kids who go into college with a faith commitment leave without it,” but declined to cite a source for the figure. And he floated the idea of requiring that universities that receive public funds have “intellectual diversity” on campus. Source

In other words, we shouldn’t listen to President Obama because he’s trying to “indoctrinate” our kids by encouraging higher education, but we should listen to Rick Santorum and his views because he knows best, right? Intellectual stifling at its best.

Conservative Radio Host Mike Savage Offers Newt Gingrich $1 Million to Drop Out of Race

Conservative radio show host Mike Savage offers Newt Gingrich $1 million to drop out of the race and his offer is only good for 48 hours. Here’s the post from Mike Savage’s World Net Daily page:

(SUBJECT TO ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO BE EXPRESSLY STATED BY DR. SAVAGE, INCLUDING GINGRICH DROPPING OUT WITHIN 72 HOURS OF TODAY)

THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL FIELD HAS COME DOWN TO TWO CANDIDATES WHO HAVE A REAL CHANCE OF GETTING THE NOMINATION: NEWT GINGRICH AND MITT ROMNEY. WHILE IT’S TRUE THAT ROMNEY IS NOT AS STRONG A CONSERVATIVE AS MANY WOULD LIKE HIM TO BE, THE MOST PRESSING ISSUE BEFORE AMERICA TODAY IS DEFEATING BARACK OBAMA. AND THAT IS SOMETHING NEWT GINGRICH CANNOT DO. FOR WEEKS ON MY SHOW, I HAVE ENUMERATED THE REASONS WHY GINGRICH CANNOT SUCCEED IN AN ELECTION AGAINST OBAMA:

  • WHEN HE WAS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, GINGRICH FAILED TO DELIVER ON HIS SO-CALLED CONTRACT WITH AMERICA.
  • HE MADE ADS WITH NANCY PELOSI PROMOTING THE FALSE THEORY OF GLOBAL WARMING.
  • HE’S IN FAVOR OF AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.
  • HE’S TAKEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FROM FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC, TWO OF THE MOST CORRUPT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN HISTORY.
  • HE’S CHEATED ON TWO WIVES AND LEFT BOTH OF THEM WHILE THEY WERE BOTH SERIOUSLY ILL, WHICH WILL DESTROY HIS CHANCES AMONG FEMALE VOTERS.
  • HE CALLED THE REPUBLICAN PLAN TO REFORM MEDICARE “RIGHT WING SOCIAL ENGINEERING.”
  • IN A PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE AGAINST OBAMA, REGARDLESS OF HOW WELL HE DOES, ON TELEVISION, HE WILL COME OFF BADLY COMPARED TO OBAMA AND LOOK LIKE NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT HE IS: A FAT, OLD, WHITE MAN.

NEWT GINRICH IS UNELECTABLE. MITT ROMNEY IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE WITH A CHANCE OF DEFEATING BARACK OBAMA, AND THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT FOR FUTURE HEALTH, SAFETY, AND SECURITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THEREFORE, I AM OFFERING NEWT GINGRICH ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO DROP OUT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE FOR THE SAKE OF THE NATION.

IF NEWT GINGRICH REALLY LOVES THIS COUNTRY AS MUCH AS HE SAYS HE DOES, IF HE REALLY WANTS WHAT IS BEST FOR AMERICA, HE WILL SET HIS EGO ASIDE, CALL ME, AND ACCEPT MY OFFER. HIS CONTINUED CANDIDACY SPELLS NOTHING BUT RUIN FOR CONSERVATIVES, REPUBLICANS, AND ALL TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS. ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN EXCHANGE FOR PRESERVING THE NATION, NEWT. I SAY TAKE THE MONEY… AND DON’T RUN. Source

This is hilarious. Even Glenn Beck is saying he’s willing to vote for Ron Paul if he runs as an independent. The Drudge Report is also reporting that Gary Busey has endorsed Newt Gingrich. Two questions about that endorsement? Who the hell is Gary Busey and who gives a sh*t if he endorses Newt Gingrich? Um, birds of a feather flock together, considering Gary Busey has a “colorful” past.

Conservative Radio Show Host Glenn Beck Dropped from NYC’s WOR 710 AM Due to "Poor Ratings"

Glenn Beck’s syndicated radio show dropped by New York City’s WOR (710 AM)due to poor ratings.

Glenn Beck’s show was dropped by New York City’s WOR (710 AM) due to poor ratings. Well, who would have thought that he had poor ratings in New York of all places. Are his “listeners” finally getting the message that he’s nothing more than an empty suit pushing vile untruths about anything he doesn’t agree with? According to the NY Daily News, WOR said said this morning it is dropping Beck’s syndicated show as of Jan. 17 and replacing him with a familiar New York name: Mike Gallagher.

“The reason is ratings,” said WOR program director Scott Lakefield. “Somewhat to our surprise, the show wasn’t getting what we wanted.”

Gallagher was a long-time host on WABC (770 AM) before he moved to national syndication several years ago. WOR general manager Jerry Crowley praised Gallagher as a New Yorker who will comment more on local issues than Beck. Source: NY Daily News

Oh well, all’s well that ends well. I’m sure his critics are pleased to see this turn of events. Let’s see if a similar occurrence will pop up at another station soon.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) Calls Glenn Beck a "Cynic," Says Birthers are "Crazy"

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was unusually blunt in his assessment of the fringe elements of the Republican Party and conservative media during an appearance before a crowd of Washington D.C.’s elite power players at The Atlantic’s First Draft of History conference. He called Fox News resident nutjob host Glenn Beck a “cynic” whose show was antithetical to American values. Finally a Republican from South Carolina who seems lucid and able to make coherent statements!

“Only in America can you make that much money crying,” Graham said of Beck. “Glenn Beck is not aligned with any party. He is aligned with cynicism and there has always been a market for cynics. But we became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers.”

He called the birther community that questions the president’s U.S. citizenship “crazy” and implored them to “knock this crap off” so the country could get on to more important matters. “I’m here to tell you that those who think the president was not born in Hawaii are crazy,” said Graham, who went on to dispel another myth: that Obama is a closet Muslim. Speaking before The Atlantic’s First Draft of History conference, Graham also ventured to call “crazy” a recent article on Newsmax, laying out how a military coup could overtake the Obama administration. Source: Huffington Post

I do agree with his comments that the demagoguery and wild emotions were prevalent to the fringes of both political parties. “There are people out there saying crazy things on our side of the aisle,” he said, “there were people saying crazy things about President Bush. That’s just the way it is. ” There are people who just cannot accept a black president, but I honestly do not think the majority of the people criticizing President Barack Obama are racist. We are all confronting harsh economic realities and people are just plain scared and angry at their plight.

White House Criticizes Fox News and Glenn Beck For Deliberate Misrepresentation of President Obama’s Push for 2016 Summer Olympics

Glenn Beck has once again went on a crazy rant with all his facts wrong. Even the official White House blog had to call this idiot out on his tirade about President Obama’s push to bring the Olympics to Chicago. Online Programs Director Jesse Lee called Beck out and Fox News, or as I like to call them Faux News, for deliberately ignoring the facts “in an attempt to smear the Administration’s efforts to win the Olympics for the United States.” The White House blog post went out to highlight what it deemed as misleading rhetoric on the President’s Olympics efforts:

RHETORIC: BECK SAID VANCOUVER LOST $1 BILLION WHEN IT “HAD THE OLYMPICS.” Glenn Beck said, “Vancouver lost, how much was it? they lost a billion dollars when they had the Olympics.” [Transcript, Glenn Beck Show, 9/29/09]

REALITY: VANCOUVER’S OLYMPICS WILL NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL 2010. Vancouver will host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games from February 12 – 28, 2010 and March 12-21, 2010, respectively. [Vancouver2010.com, accessed 9/29/09]

Am I to assume that Glenn Beck cannot understand what he reads? There’s a big difference between 2009 and 2010. The White House’s sharp criticism of Fox News and Beck ends with the statement, “For even more Fox lies, check out the latest “Truth-O-Meter feature from Politifact,” linking to another deliberate misrepresentation by Fox News’ of President Obama and the endeavors of his administration.

Joy Behar Slams Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly During Appearance on "Reliable Sources" (VIDEO)

Joy Behar of “The View” and soon-to-be host of her own show on HLN, literally took right wing nutjob Glenn Beck to the backyard shed and gave him a tongue lashing. This all occurred during her appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” this morning. She also slammed Bill O’Reilly, but much of her venom was directed to the network clown, Glenn Beck. Behar said she thinks his past struggles with alcohol and drug addiction could be one of the reasons why he cultivates such outrageous personality:

But I think that he is frequently ridiculous and doesn’t make any sense as far as I’m concerned. But he calls himself a rodeo clown, he’s a clown, he’s on the cover of Time magazine. I mean the media just plays right into his hands… He’s addicted to all of that publicity I think. It took the place of drinking.

Dang, I guess she just read Beck like a tawdry Mills & Boon novel. I can tolerate Bill O’Reilly because he is a far more reasonable person than Glenn Beck. I honestly would not ever label Bill O’Reilly as an extremist, much less a racist. Beck, on the other hand, he’s a hopeless nutcase.
