I wonder how many people were impressed with GB's lecture from the pulpit today? I wonder how many people listen to him are are appreciative of his good ideas and guidance?

From my personal perspective, I'd trust this man about as far as I could throw him.

Yeah i have to agree with what most of you are posting on this thread,
except for that ANGRY dude that keeps insulting a vast array of people with such volatile hate, dude, chill out, that is no way to discuss matters in an adult forum as such..........

I could say the same for many many people. Never throw complete trust into MSM...and that includes the people who only bash Fox News and ignore the they are unbiased!

He has been bringing things to light that need to be brought up...such as the Federal Reserve....our debt....Mexico.

If people think this is propaganda then they are the ones who shouldn't be trusted.

He's not right all the time...and many things i disagree with him on...especially when it comes to the middle east and foreign policy.

But he is right on our financial problems.

And for cripes sake at least someone IS TALKING ABOUT IT.

If you want to sit and listen to the "everything is going to be fine" crowd...go right ahead.

Many of the things he believes sound exactly like something i would say.

So if I got on there and said my i suddenly have and agenda?

I wouldn't think I would as i would be telling people what I believed to be true.

And another thing...a man or woman's opinion is not set in evolves...

People have a tendency to be confused regarding "messengers." We always want to kill them!!!

ALL of MSM are bought up and may be corrupt, however, this does not negate their entire message. We don't worship the messenger, although most want to.

Truth can come from anywhere, despite the messenger. It is vital to remember this! For often the truth is revealed in all of the "unsaids!"

If we make a political issue out of this, then the chances are: we will be duped.

Look for what resonates with us and then take the necessary steps that one feels is important for you. When all is said and done, it will be our "senses" that will be our life preserver.

After watching these 2 vids & several others;

the fact alone that this guy is taking so much flack from every direction - from the MSM to (anonymous) chatroom posters - tells me he is worth listening to.

Perfect? No.

But he IS the nearest thing to V at the moment.

Yeah he's getting hammered from all directions...but why would the rest of the media do that? They are unbiased right?

The reason he wrote this was because he felt he was going to seen as being at fault if some crazy person did something stupid. He didn't think it was fair...and it's not.

I'm not going to sit here and defend him all day....but people need to look up everything he says before righting it off as propaganda and untruthful.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the truth when we are already flooded with lies from all directions....

If you'd read any of my other posts, you'd realize I'm not from the "everything is going to be fine" crowd. In fact many of my viewpoints have been somewhat accepted as reasonably well educated by our peers on this site.

And no, if you got on there and said your opinion... you don't necessarily have an agenda although you could. But if you flip-flopped on your opinion every month or two, I certainly wouldn't be taking you seriously.

You are right. I have not read your other i decided to read some
For whatever reason, many people's profile pictures aren't showing up. I don't know if this is because of the new ATS rules or not..but it also makes it more difficult for me to remember particular people and their posts.

I do agree with you on some things....I just don't on this one.

OK, so let's all agree to keep an eye out and look for the "ah-HA" moment when it becomes clear what they are doing and why.

Bottom line, I like what he said! That bothers me, because it does make me wonder what they're up to. RARELY does a MSM personality say what I'm thinking, and Glenn Beck does. That makes me want to like him, but it doesn't make me a die-hard follower, because the moment he strays, I'll be all over it. I'm not easily led.....but I like what he said!

We can pick apart how much he gets paid, his motives, his wishy-washy views on the FEMA camps, but one thing is certain.....he's human like the rest of us. Someone mentioned he's insecure....aren't we all?

But here's a man that shows it on national television and shed tears. OK, maybe he's a good actor, but not everyone reacts so violently when they see a man shed tears over his country. I've seen grown men cry, many times, and for very real reasons....I can't tell if he was acting or not. He's either getting paid a LOT of money to forfeit his "manhood" (based on our absurd cultural standards, mind you) on national TV, or he's got some brass you-know-what's, and doesn't care what anyone thinks.

Perhaps he IS pushing his own personal opinion, and walking that fine line too much with a slap on the wrist (FEMA camps). Maybe FOX is using him to get ratings so they can utilize more of their subliminal messaging....maybe Beck isn't aware of it. There's a whole lot of maybe's going on, so the only thing I'm going to do is to keep my eyes open. I'd be interested, if anyone has a TiVO, to see if there are indeed subliminal things going on throughout his program that would counter what he's saying. Another poster mentioned the pyramid and "G".....I say GREAT! So instead of arguing about agendas and what he said, why he said it, let's find out for sure. Anyone willing to record it and do some research? I do not have a TiVO, otherwise I'd do it myself.

In case any of you are wondering if the FOX Network is actually guilty of this, here are some videos someone sent to me a while back. You may have to pause these frame by frame to see them, but when you do, it's shocking.

Yeah, it's partly my own fault too. For the first month I didn't even have an avatar because I just couldn't figure out to get it to work. Turns out it was a size issue. Since you mentioned avatars.... just in case anybody reads this who is having avatar troubles, I found out that it's usually a size issue. It can be no larger than 160 wide by 320 tall. If you resize it no bigger than this in either direction, it will work.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it.
Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher.
But whatever, after due examination and analysis,
you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings -
that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.

Believe nothing on the faith of traditions,
even though they have been held in honor
for many generations and in diverse places.
Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it.
Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past.
Do not believe what you yourself have imagined,
persuading yourself that a God inspires you.
Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests.
After examination, believe what you yourself have tested
and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

Glenn Beck, this guy is for sure should be an actor, he is good.
My friends it's all about the money . Last year he renagotiated his contract on radio for 50,000,000, yes that's million. Plus what he recieved from cnn and now the( fix) oh ,I mean fox network. He's laughing all the way to the bank, It's all show biz and nothing else. He gets the non thinkers on the right all riled up ,agitated and angry with his propaganda and bing another check! So whats the bottom line? Helping or hindering it's your call.

Hindering of course, that's what it's all about baby..... Make sure the sheeples have ZERo clue what's all about to happenn, whatever it may be.

I like Beck's show, I find it entertaining and distracting, which is exactly all it is.. Entertaining and Distracting, there's no REAL news in there it's just rehashed from everywhere else.

The reason for "dull you to sleep" reporting, and debates is to place your conscious mind into a catatonic state. Just watch the MSM, while at the same time scanning your own thoughts. You will wander, and that is what the MSM wants you to do.

Now, look at the sets "bells, and whistles" going on behind the different news personalities. I cannot pinpoint what exactly, but they need you in a catatonic waking state to allow a "super highway" to your subconscious. This is where your deep seeded beliefs reside, and this is where the MSM needs to plant subversion.

Glenn Beck is as someone pointed out, a "The Ultimate Wolf In Sheep's Clothing". As with many MSM "figure heads" Mr. Beck's "character" has evolved. There is a mass awakening occurring right now. Mr. Beck is playing the "real patriot" card in an attempt "lull" newly awakening people back into bed.

It is actually a dangerous game for the New World Order. Having to place Glenn "The Real Patriot" Beck out in the open speaking half baked truths, will indeed lull some back to sleep. However, on the same token the reason for the danger is that he can also awaken sleeping people to parts of truth.

All in all, Glenn Beck is a master manipulator, an opinion maker just like he says and FOX is a joke.

I burst out laughing when I heard him essentially say "Hey, I can't prove that FEMA concentration camps exist, but let me tell you all about them anyway".

The FEMA concentration camps are real of course. Its the way they operate that is in question.

If we have a major nationwide outbreak of a super virus you dont this FEMA is prepared for this? Of course they are...or at least better be.

They concentrate the people into a camp. They did it after Katrina. They are concentrated into a giant campsite of trailers.

They ARE concentration camps!

The question is NOT do they exist? The question is what do they exist for?

Some people don't like Beck because he's on Fox, which due to political propaganda people don't seem to think they report news up to par with the other stations. which is of course moronic to an extreme.. if they only saw that they are as blind as they preach everyone else is..

Beck I believe worked for CNN before Fox, No?

The people that disregard what someone says entirely simply because of the station they are on have already failed at resisting that which they think they are resisting. They gave in to the master plan, conquer, divide, keep the people ignorant. Especially the ignorant one's who see themselves as enlightened, which basically builds a cage around their mind.

Glenn Beck speaks for no one but himself. He certainly doesn't speak for me. I speak for me and I try to address every issue I participate in with a healthy mixture of style and logic. Like him or not he is one half of the conversation we often find ourselves in here on ATS...Regardless of that half.

I'm just happy someone is having this conversation.

If Glenn Beck has taught me anything, it's how we can't trust each other anymore. Sad, but true.
There are other things, but they don't stay on topic.

I`m not familiar with him, living in Scotland as I do, however from thoses clips at the top of the post I think he is a wolf in sheep`s clothing and do not trust a word he says. As soon as I saw the fox logo at the bottom I switched of mentally, the only thing I can stomach from fox is the simpsons and even they have become a lot of #e. Think if Glenn was around 60 years ago he could have got a job with the SS Propaganda devision, that and he has dead eyes

Ugh. Why has this clown become something of a folk hero here? Every day another GB thread. Even a blind (or dumb) squirrel finds a nut occasionally, and from watching him a little I have found it to be 95% fluff and garbage, just like any other blowhard pundit. Most of the "good" stuff is still fear-mongering that gets you to tune in for the rest to see what he's going to say while filling the rest of the show with junk. He's such a ratings craving, sheep herding phony it's not even funny. I'm very suspicious of what he's doing, the creepy eye closeup thing pointed out on colbert sent up a red flag for me. Some kind of NLP? I dunno but it's fishy that fox would just allow a subversive show that provides any illumination to air.
