Obama's Green Czar resigned but it goes deeper than that. Obama has these radical people as czars because he agrees with them. He can't say this because he's President and he has to act like a moderate.

Obama hangs around a lot of radical people and he appoints them as czars because they are too radical to go through a confirmation process. Democrat Senator Robert Byrd even complained about Obama and the czars.

His science czar talked about euthanizing people through the water supply, his regulatory czar thinks animals can sue their owners in courts. You have Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dorn and more.

Obama hangs around all these radicals because he holds the same views.

Glenn Beck is simply supporting the Constitution and the Founding Fathers of the country. Obama doesn't like the Constitution and this is coming from Obama himself.

In a 2001 radio interview Obama said the Constitution was fundamentally flawed because it restrains government and it doesn't talk about the redistribution of wealth.


Seven years before Barack Obama's "spread the wealth" comment to Joe the Plumber became a GOP campaign theme, the Democratic presidential candidate said in a radio interview the U.S. has suffered from a fundamentally flawed Constitution that does not mandate or allow for redistribution of wealth.

But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.

This isn't a fundamental flaw but it was designed this way by the Founders. They didn't want any man or government controlling peoples lives. They wanted people to control their lives according to the dictates of their conscious. Government was put in place to be limited and to protect the God given rights of the individual.

The reason why Glenn Beck is right on this is because he's just talking about the Constitution. Obama and his radical friends don't like the Constitution because it restrains government and it doesn't talk about redistribution of wealth.

These are not my words or Glenn Beck's words but they are Obama's own words.

Here's Byrd's take on czars.

www.politico.com...

The funny (?) thing about this is that the MSM and other liberals are just "shocked" by this successful attack made by the republicans.

Not one word about communism, racism, vulgarity.

Good article.




West Virginia Sen. Robert C. Byrd, the longest-serving Democratic senator, on Wednesday criticized President Barack Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy, saying these executive positions amount to a power grab by the executive branch.

Byrd complained in a letter to the president that his decision to create White House offices on health care reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change “can threaten the constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”


Obama appoints al these czars because he knows they are too radical to go through a confirmation hearing. The sad thing is, Obama agrees with these radicals and that's why he appoints them as czars.

He can't say he agrees with them because he has to act moderate as President.

All you have to do is read his books and listen to his speeches and interviews before he had to act like a moderate in order to get elected. Just look at the company he keeps. These people are very radical.

Obama is basically taking pages from his book to run this administration and country.

Obama is a snake in the grass waiting to devour American sovereignty and the Constitution. Everything this man is doing is socialism and totally wrong.

All I have to say is DON'T GET THE SWINE FLU VACCINE!!! Star and flag to the OP. I'm an avid Glenn Beck watcher and supporter. I see him opening his eyes on a daily basis. He use to be really republican, almost to the extent of a Neocon but has started to change pace, became a libertarian and is starting to see how right these "conspiracy theorists" are. Good for him for opening his eyes! And kudos to him for spreading the truth about Van Jones resulting in Jones' resignation.

Its an act, he is like Obama, Beck changes with the wind and like Obama knows how to reel people in. Beck takes the form of whatever is popular in the conservative movement at the time, that is how he stays employed. If he kept up his NEOCON act he would no longer be on the air, because a CONSTITUTION LOVING LIBERTARIAN type would have taken his place, simply because it sells right now.

If you do not care about your information or the formation of your OWN opinions watch on. However if you really do care about your mind you should really think about his shift. Glen Beck will be a neocon again in twenty years when it is popular again, in fact he will be what you want him to be.

If you care for this country on a deep level do not put all your trust in a man who is paid with advertising dollars provided by MULTI NATIONALS.

My trust is not completely with him but he's the only one talking about anything like this in the msm. Give him that credit at least. If this is the popular thing to do, why is he the only one doing it? Why is everyone else in the msm worshipping obama?

Fair enough, just make sure you do not become the tool for evil later on, you will never
even notice when that switch will take place.

Take care!

First of all, i'd like to say that I don't appreciate the phrase "God given rights". You earn your 'rights' by simply existing, not from some mysterious being. Secondly, no one should really care if Mr. Obama or anyone in the Gov. like the Constitution or not. It was made by the people, for the people wasn't it? All the Gov. need to do is follow it or move out of the way for those that will. Not hard to debate IMHO.

Sorry you don't like the phrase God Given rights but this is the great idea behind the founding of this country.

I suggest you read the Declaration of Independence.


When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.


The reason why this is so powerful is because it says your rights come from God. This means no man or government cant take away your God Given rights.

Some people have such a blind, hatred for religion when they hear the word God they go crazy.

Don't worry. I'm a Ron Paul supporter... a states rights activist.... an Alex Jones fan..... and ready to succeed from the Union if it comes to that. My eyes are peeled. See my avatar? Chicken Little cried out that the sky was falling but no one would believe him. I'm watching the sky fall and I think only a few of us realize how close to collapse we are. I think Beck is a late player but is realizing that some debris is on the ground. Do you get the metaphore?

Another one..... < sigh>

What's wrong with Socialism exactly? I just wanna make sure you have a clue what your talking about, or if you're just reacting to buzz words.

You do realize we're pretty socialist as a country already right?

I'm also curious to hear about this "snake in the grass" and exactly how he intends to take away our sovereignty. Or is this just an emotional drive by statement that doesn't really amount to any facts?

Educate us.

These are not my words or Glenn Beck's words but they are Obama's own words.


Reaaaaallly?

First off, Glenn Beck is pissed, and went after Van Jones, because Jones' organization is responsible for some 50+ advertisers leaving his show for calling the President a Racist. Trust me, he didn't go after him to protect your freedoms, Matrix. He was protecting his pocketbook. He doesn't give a crap about your precious freedoms. If Liberal Talk became popular tomorrow (and profitable), Beck would be a Progressive in 2 shakes of a lambs tail.

Second, I'm not so sure Glenn Beck has leveled with you or his viewers on the fact that, contrary to the bull puckey he's feeding you everyday, the idea of "Czar's" did not ride into town with Obama. Bushey had Czar's as well. It's not an uncommon practice.

Sooooo.....

You want me to believe that NOW, during this administration, Beck found God when it came to the Constitution? Where was his fake concern and weeping on TV when Bush was circumventing the Constitution?

And finally, if you're going to make ridiculous Hannity-like assertions about Obama and his "radical friends" not liking the constitution. How bout a few good examples on why you feel that way? Just so that we're not left to assume that Beck is the only place where you get your news.

Beck had plenty to say about Bush. He wanted Bush impeached when Bush didn't push for a border fence or wall leaving us with open borders. He spoke out and lashed out at Bush over the 700 billion dollar bailout/stimulous. You're feeding into the two-party system that is in place to keep people arguing over petty things. I also realize our country is quite socialist too. I'm not a fan of it. Might as well move to the USSR (if it still existed). Our country has become socialist because of our government scare-tactics to the public. Gun control, government assistance (medicaid, medicare, social security, food stamps, wic, welfare, etc.) Our goverment's only task is to keep our country safe from foreign and domestic threats. States are suppose to be independent from the federal government. Most of the laws of the land are suppose to be left for the states, not the federal government. Learn your constitution.

Ron Paul is a Libertarian. (Yes, I know he has a R-there)
Glenn Beck is a tool.

How can you support Glenn Beck after he said "Ron Paul supporters are terrorist"?

I couldn't standy his melodramatic rants then and I certainly can't stand them now, especially since he's trying to take a note from Ron Paul and turn into his version of a libertarian. I wonder if Rupert Murdoch added that clause to his contract when he signed on to FOX. I mean seriously, the man goes from seemingly moderate/liberal CNN to completely conservative FOX while his position goes from outright conservative to now libertarian?

There's one thing motivating Glenn Beck. Ratings. There had to be a way into the democratic base and Glenn stole yet again from the terroristic tactics of Ron Paul and his supporters: Libertarianism. Except, unlike Ron Paul, Glenn Beck can give two squats about what that really means.

The only reason he said that was because during the campaign for president, Beck didn't agree with Ron Paul's stance on the wars and because of that, many of the "violent natured" Ron Paul supporters were sending death threats to Beck. Beck gave 1 hour of free time to Ron Paul to talk to his viewers and was the only one in msm to do so. He even asked Ron Paul if he supported the Ron Paul supporters that are threatening him. Paul said he doesn't support anyone that resorts to "terroristic threats" on someone else such as death threats. Most of this was a result of Beck's book "An Inconvenient Book" while on his book signing tour. You need to grasp the whole story and not just one thing Beck said. He has also had Ron Paul on his show plenty of times and agrees with most of his policies, especially the ones that have to do with economics. He's an even bigger fan of Rand Paul, Ron's son who's running for Senate in Kentucky.

Also, his run on CNN was only because they are the ones that gave him a job. He left CNN when FOX News offered him a better contract. He fits in better with FOX News because it's a more conservative news outlet and though he proclaims Libertarian, he is middle conservative.... which is what most Libertarians are.
