I feel rather embarrassed that a lot of ATS members are buying into such cheap trick. Now I know why Fox News is so popular.

I have listened to Glenn Beck since almost the beginning. He has been going at this for awhile now. It is nothing new. He actually mellowed out abit once he made it big. But now he is jumping right back into it.


He is the one man in media I trust.


I'm sorry... but I can't stand his views on 9-11.



If you are gonna put on an act about how the governmnet is gaining too much power... then maybe you might want to ponder this thought... AT THE VERY LEAST... AT VERY ABSOLUTE LEAST OF THE LEAST... is it possible that maybe, just maybe, elements of the US Governmnet let this happen?

Didn't PNAC mention something about a New Pearl Harbor?

Anyway... the only person in the media that got close enought to start demanding answers was Lou Dobbs... I think he got a threatened to retract what he said.

Remember this is event-tainment not news, thats how he can slip his sponsors in the show.

The one that kills me is when he says Dont listen to me about gold call these guys and ask them what gold coins I buy... lol he's not even hiding it.


Yea he is becoming popular because the Howard Stern effect, people listen just to hear what stupid thing he is going to say next.

Even a clock is right once in 10 years.

O'really delivery of news rivals that lair guy on SNL....

yap yap yap all sounds good then BAM you did hear what you thought you heard. He said something like that about the stock market today in the opening part of the show.


I do like hearing other opinions but when people dont see the strings it makes me a little uneasy...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

just use the filter between your ears please...

I dont like Beck at all personally but he does have interesting shows...I agree with you that it would be ridiculous if he turned out to be part of the problem, rather then the solution...But as an annoying radio/t.v. personality he truly is part of the problem- he's with the media...

If he was the real deal, along with the rest of him, he would do something outside of radio/tv like helping out a community, organizing events, things of that nature...none of what he's doing constitutes what he speaks for and about.

Trust no-one but yourself in the end...I virtually am forced to watch fox news all day as its broadcasted throughout the office. It's very opinionated and lacks actual "news"...Not to mention that everyone's on their high and mighty horse over there.

Glenn Beck has no revolution...He may be getting attention...but he's not a leader. People don't want to listen to an over-opinionated, pedantic, ex-drunk.

If you do contact my Uncle Leroy.

I honestly dont like Beck but I will respect anyone who states on the air what we are all thinking.

Even if it is a panic tactic to desensitize us to the coming revolts.

The first thing I said in the OP was that I'M CONFUSED!... It doesn't make sense that Fox News would air what we here on ATS are all thinking.

there is obviously a piece of the puzzle that we are all missing.

In my opinion... The (do I dare call them this?) .... The Illuminati knows what events will happen that will leave us saying OMG!!! TSHTF!!!

Now that's such a huge advantage that all we have left is our prayers, faith, and spirituality.


I don't know how the 'S' will hit the fan... but I'm pretty sure Rupert Murdoch does.

It's more likely that it's The Bilderberger Group that's behind this.

All the news network owners are members of this group.

I'm wondering, Murdoch released that state posted earlier in the thread. If he really got kicked out of the elite club, or decided that the path he was following was not the path not the right path and had a change of heart, he is old you know.

I'm wondering if he could be the best ally, or maybe he wasn't ever in on it, because of his attitude and personality. Maybe the "club" decided he was too risky to let him in, and now with the events coming he has finally woken up.

It is a possibility.

Glen hasn't changed his message, it's just that the conservative views are proving to be true over time.

When totalitarian government arrives, it will be in the form of what's good for the many. Big brother big government taking your money and rights away has always meant the socialist 'Democratic party'. This wasn't always the case, the Democrats a hundred years ago were for minimal government and liberty, but they shifted to big government, government knows best and pushing their liberal values via thought police, and influence of lifestyle and consumption habits for the good of the many. The Republican party more recently (twenty years ago) once stood for minimal government and liberty, but has shifted along with the Democrats to big brother - big government - government knows best and also are pushing their values on your life.

The more concentrated power is, the more totalitarian the government. It's not a question of which party is in charge since they're really the same. Listen to the tone of the President, and the phrases he uses. The tone and phrases very much reflect a strong desire to control, and treat adults like children. "Those days are over" "No longer an option" etc. This all points to a totalitarian government that thinks it knows what's best for you and won't trust you with rights.

to the OP, I don't understand what's so confusing about FOX pushing GLen Beck to cover things from a *gasp* different perspective...

if this perspective hasn't been posted here, then I'm ashamed of you ATSers...

you're well aware that they're talking heads reading from teleprompters.. reading text that's approved from their higher ups.. the people that pay them to say what they say..

and one starts saying something "contrary to the party line" and it confuses you?

there's no doubt millions of people are seeing all this change.. and feeling it's impact in their daily lives.. especially if they're newly unemployed and can't find work..

obviously a logical approach from a mainstream news source would be to scoop up some of that negative reactionary energy the populace is and will beginning to convey..
and instead of loosing it's viewership to independent uncensored sources...
leak drip drip some of that sentiment and "research" or "coverage" .. or "opnion sharing" .. into thir own trough for the swine to feed from.. all the hile conveying it with their own twist.. "debunking" and converting those topics into gruel that's more palpable for the dumbed down.. or "hyped up" to gain independent viewers with it's pow! wow! zoom zoom! graphics and high paced amusement-park-ride adrenaline surging programming content.

as a producer or editor ...you rely on viewership.. and advertisers to keep you funded...
so..you see what's happening.. you take the pulse.. you adjust your programming .. obviously anticipating a certain sentiment.. and you ADDRESS that sentiment in the way YOU want it portrayed ..

you want to pepper the water cooler discussions with your "fair and ballanced" pep talks.


it's obviously neccessary procedure to properly orchestrate political and social understanding of events occurring.
sooner or later your agenda is going to cause changes so drastic.. that people will NEED to know the ANSWERS to the questions in their mind..

so you supply that to them with your specific garnish and dressings.


eat up!


MMMMM!. Fair n' Balancy-licioussss! AUUUUGHHH.. //drool///

By 'Democrat', you are talking about the 'Demoncratic Communist Party? The difference between Socialist and Communist is, by their own words, merely one of degree.

It could be part of a larger, NWO style, agenda, but my thoughts about it are much more simple. The Elite know they have to keep us divided, so they play the Dem versus Rep card and Liberal vs. Conservative card whenever possible. When Bush was in office Fox News rises in support, now Obama and the democrats are in power. Of course once the Democrats are in power Fox News is going to start talking about the government having too much power...

Plus they could be playing on the psyches of the people, we've been waiting eight long years praying for some sort of revolution, any kind of revolution, our economy's in the toilet and the government has shown its true colors (by trying to end the crisis by creating more debt and bailing out corporate criminals while leaving the people to their fate)... Fact is this country is long overdue for some Change, and I really doubt Obama is going to deliver on it, especially if the MSM and party lines do their job to keep us bickering amongst ourselves while the Elite screw us out of our money and our freedom...

It's not that we trust FOXNews so much... Give some credit.

Beck can be an absolute nut sometimes. O'Reilly has recently scaled back his flamboyant news topics; Hannity? he's a character whether you love him or hate him (Colmes was a funny little shadow of a man.)

They all have one thing in common in my opinion. My wife and family can watch them all together and it gets us involved in talking to each other and sometimes flaring opinions but always conversation happens.
Taken with a grain of salt and we all know that it's just entertainment.

Unlike the mind numbing reality tv or OMG the view, the list is exhaustive.

CNN was such awash, prior to the election, of Obamalust that I was infuriated enough to write to their only trustworthy personality (they aren't people anymore, they are all personalities) Lou Dobbs condemning their obviously biased coverage. I'll still will only watch Lou, rarely, but he comes across as if he's had one too many some nights. xD I think Lou hates everyone.

The wife thinks FOXNews can't offer him enough to get him.

BUT they got Beck; He's OK to be Paul Revere for the mainstream. Someone has to and if everything chills out and we don't end up in WWIII, there will always be fornicators in government to be exposed and other wild topics.

911 is going to remain my own personal litmus test....

if one of these talking heads or heads of state deny what really happened their cred is shot....

Lets face it ... last phases of NWO are in order... things are going to get bad ..and some media is going to have to seem "maverick" and empathetic... pointing fingers at some phantom cause and being on "our" side... voila ..hand picked Glen Beck.... it tightens their grip on their viewers as they point out the downfall....

lets hear Glen Beck call for the dismantling of the Fed Reserve... THEN Ill even turn a bit of earlobe his way.....

The only thing that bothers me about all this issue with Glenn Beck becoming a "radical" is that where was he when Bush was screwing the nation.

He actually was kissing up to the the Republican party.


Now he has a change of hart and it took him 8 years to see how the nation has gone down the toilet.

Now he wants action.

Perhaps because now we have a majority Democrat congress with a Democrat President.

God figure.

Was he?

Everyday on the radio he was supporting the Libertarian party and complaining that the Republicans have sold us all big load of BS and need to hang for their lies.

I guess that could equate to support?

That was in the last year or so, I used to watch fox and him for many years until the butt kissing for the Republican administration became too much.

So no, he was not always complaining about Bush at all.

His show on CNN wasnt really like his radio show. On CNN he was trying to push back against what he percieved as strong left-wing bias at CNN.

The radio show is his core. It's been his alone for as long as I can remember. That's where the "real" Glenn is and he's no fan of the Republican Party.
