All this is too bad and I'm afraid nothings going to change until there's Serious Civil Unrest to the point where the police and military is a non-issue.

I must have an ulterior motive as well as he seems to shadow many of my opinions..although certainly not all, and this was way before I ever started watching his show.

To Southern Guardian:

Do you honestly think things are going to be as they are now in 10 years?

Be honest. What do you think it's going to look like in 4? How about 8?

Its gonna be the same crap all over again...
FOX is steadily digging under foot - THE station that once called people unAmerican for
dissenting, is Now suggesting to turn the flag upside down... Fox has been the keystone to all that is neocon and destructive -Fox has allowed for and covered up for this mess. Beck works for Fox... Fox have a profile team as I have said a million times... Its sad to see so many have been profiled so easily - especially u D

You'll get your Palin one day - God Bless Amerika -

He is a politician and a politician with little experience.
Joe biden is the brain in the outfit.
and he is the one with most of the earmark's.

It's called paying of the people who helped get them elected..
Trace the earmark' got the people behind obama's success.
and it's not the American people.
Us voter's vote on what we are told...AND allot of bs was told on obama's part to make him Lincoln JFK type status to everyone.
So trace the ear's my friends and find the rabbit's.

I can't say that I am really surprised. I never believed him when he said he would go line by line and take out the unnecessary spending, because they wouldn't know unnecessary spending if it came up and slapped them across the face.

They have no concept of what a budget is or how to stick to it. Until the people demand accountability in force it is not going to change.

Can't really argue with the message, S & F op.

I love the Glenn Beck and Fox Network bashing! It's so relevant to the issue that is being discussed in the video. Make the clip an audio file, change his voice pitch or something, then repost it as an anonymous speaker so people might actually disect the content

They laugh in our faces as they are robbing us blind. They add exotic trips and excursions in these earmarks, knowing we will see them and become enraged.

Catching mosquito's in Florida - wow - great way to burn up a billion or so of our slave created hand me down lifelong debt for our children.

They are laughing and robbing us blind. If you don't like it they will up the terror level and stage one of know, just to get that fear control going again.

If that doesn't work, they will help Mexico collapse and start crap right next door.

They have our military and foreign military waiting on stand by for their call - and for exactly what they have been training for lately all over rural America - Martial Law.

When we finally get pissed off and rush Washington because we have had enough, we will be rounded up, and eventually terminated with either shots to the head or their wonderful "Soft Kill" drugs and weapons.

They love this game they are playing, they have waited a long time - generations and these so called bloodline bred leaders get to have fun with our lives and no one can even get close to them.

Must be great to be immune at the top!

Hi at the risk of sounding like a moron ( not from the US sorry) what are earmarks and pork barrel?

Topics Discussed on today's program may be disturbing for some viewers. The views expressed in this program are not prediction of what will happen, but what could happen.
The panelist have been asked to think the unthinkable. viewer discretion is advised.

Guess again anywhere, this is the situation that could possibly be coming to our shores.The war room, WE are war rooming different scenarios... We are not predicting that these things will happen, we're asking... could they happen? and what do WE do if they happen? Heres our second scenario... Global civil unrest...

Now the United States is no longer the worlds policemen

Mexico has been taken over by NARCO gangs

Oil and gas pipelines have been targeted and destroyed

Tourism non existent due to safety concerns

Ukraine is the first european country to fail... Eastern European

Ireland is the first western European country to fail

50 million people worldwide are unemployed
there are riots in the streets

Were gonna start with Mexico...

There's breaking news that has just come over the wire in the last couple of minutes.(toss off FOX tm.)

I believe you have that update?

I .. do on a ( garbled )... The chief law enforcement officer their has now resigned, after one of his officers and a prison guard were killed over the last couple days with notes threatening is family and everything... THIS is what WE talked about last time I was on with is that, Mexico is this close to being a failed state, its gonna be a narco state and this is gonna pose serious security concerns for the UNITED STATES


I believe it will play into at least , to the DISENFRANCHISE and a
possible uprising here in the UNITED STATES

With, god forbid, please everybody have a seat and relax a little bit

On the world stage what are you most concerned about, if , IF these things would come true, IF WE had to retract back into ourselves? Because we can't afford to the worlds police, what concerns you, what does the world look like?

A couple of Scenarios ARE becoming very REAL, not just risks BUT PROBABILITY...
Lets say we go into a prolonged depression, price of oil falls to $5 or $6 dollars a barrel
the gulf states STRAT going under one by one, Saudi Arabia depends on very expensive oil so does IRAN, Irans got a population of 70 million, people start to starve, they're out of money a big army, they move into the gulf and take it, you have a hostile regime in charge of OUR resources --- THAT IS NOT THAT FAR AWAY...

Thanks for posting that!

I love Glen Beck and no longer get to watch his show like I used to.

Yeah, this is becoming a scarier place by the day.

I fail to see what there is to get worked up about regarding this stimulus package.

Pork. Earmarks. It doesn't matter what you call these programs, they represent money that will be pumped into the economy.

Everyone wants a piece of the pie and everyone is going to get some.

Is the taxpayer going to pay for it all?

Yes, but the money will be coming back to us in the form of jobs.

I'm not supporting socialism, but the government spends money and with the free market in trouble at this time, spending the people's money to help improve the economic situation doesn't seem like a bad idea.

I don't think that this is a panacea for all our problems, but I don't see it as the end of civilization either.

I like Glenn Beck and his perspective.

I don't think he's a neo-con.

He seems more libertarian to me, but mostly now he sounds like he's pumping up the ratings a little with some histrionics.

Outrage is not always the best emotion in times like these.

Careful observation for future reference the next time we vote for the Senate and House members would be better.

Maybe it's a good thing that Beck gets all worked up, but we can't all afford to get worked up into a frenzy.

Life goes on.

I'm sorry, but you are wrong.
First of all, most earmarks are very state specific projects, and unfortunately, the contractors are almost always friends of the congressman or congresswoman that stuck the bill in there. In the worst cases, the contractors are relatives of the congressional rep. Those earmarks DO NOT usually contribute to the public welfare at large.
For instance, would you rather spend 1 million dollars to upgrade an interstate highway, or 1 million dollars to build a road to a senator's summer cabin. Same amount of money, but the first one benefits many Americans, the second one benefits the senator. Why should you or I pay for a semi-private road to nowhere?
Why are we spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to encourage astronomy in Hawaii?(It's in the bill).
Here is more "pork" in the bill:

Among the pet projects is one to help producers of genuine pork, in contrast to the Congressional variety. The bill includes $1.8 million to conduct research in Iowa on “swine odor and manure management.” The legislation includes $173,000 for research on asparagus production in Washington State; $206,000 for wool research in Montana, Texas and Wyoming; and $209,000 for efforts to improve blueberry production in Georgia. It also includes $208,000 to control a weed known as cogongrass in Mississippi; $1.2 million to control cormorants in Michigan, Mississippi, New York and Vermont; $1 million to control Mormon crickets in Utah; and $162,000 to control rodents in Hawaii. Democrats also earmarked money for the presidential libraries of three Democrats: Franklin D. Roosevelt ($17.5 million), John F. Kennedy ($22 million) and Lyndon B. Johnson ($2 million).

Yes, I know that they are state specific, but states are where the people live.

I know that there is corruption in government, but that's not new.

I know that not every earmark is something that I personally would approve of.

I also know that research into sometimes arcane subjects does help the economy, even if it is a small part, and it also helps to further scientific knowledge.

I did not say that the bill is perfect, but it does pump money into the economy.

What concerns me more than the bill itself is the arrogance of congress, the president, and what is to follow.

The stimulus package is flawed, but it is as much as a done deal.

We need to be aware of where it will lead.

He's a mormon

The constitution supports all religions. I fail to see what difference this makes.

This is a free least it is supposed to be. People's failure of tolerance is yet another reason why this country is in so much trouble.

It's about personal freedom and rights...not what you think everyone should do or think or believe.

If you find fault in this...then you do not support what this country was founded on.

It shouldn't matter if someone is a christian, mormon, athiest, agnostic, buddhist, muslim, etc. It doesn't matter.

They have that right...and should be allowed to live with their beliefs without persecution.

The scenarios presented are no scarier than the world stage during the JFK-REAGAN era. failed states? what exactly is a failed state? Mexico is already a narco state, you know like we're a petrol-state starting wars to insure an oil supply( Iran v Iraq/giving license to iraq to invade Kuwait for drilling under their border into Iraq/ the First and SECOND gulf wars and present [failed] occupation. thanks georgie/Didnt Sweden just have an economic collapse and didnt you see the riots and foodlines? oh thats right there weren't any (its not because their nordic( their a lot of muslims, i mean a LOT) who cares? no one is going to come and take your automatic weapons, no one is going to outlaw your bible, and thanks to the present admin. those struggling will have food, some type of shelter (think Bush and Katrina as the alternative) and hope for a new job. don't let beck make money off your insecurities, just use ATS were a lot more attractive and we don't smell bad (beck smells funny like that sweaty shirt you left in your car after you worked out last week....peace! or war, whatevers clever!
