>>Only a fool would comment and give his whole cloth 'OPINION' about something he knows nothing about and never seen, especially when it is easily accessed for a $1, but then your lack of research attests for how you were raised and what you pride yourself in.<<

You seem to pride yourself in the personal attack in lieu of a sound argument.

You much rather attack me and now my parents and how I was raised than address that I pointed out that Beck IS the executive producer of "For the Record" and therefore has his hand in the program.

Speaks volumes for the class of people that are Beck fans.

If you want to believe that this program is something other than the usual Beck programing just because you pay for it, suit yourself.

Maybe if you give Glenn another $1, he will tell you the secret information he had on the Saudi Nat'l kid that he threatened the Government with, but never divulged.
I'm betting that Glenn will keep you hanging on that one since he already has you on the hook.

>>You know what I meant, but choose to twist it ..<<

Sorry, didn't twist anything. Next, you'll claim that I took you out of context.
I noticed that you didn't answer my question.

Given Beck's track record on research, i.e., Money man Saudi Nat'l, one would have to wonder about the kind of research one is paying for.

rda - "i like glens politics and know he has to make a buck but wish he'd become a christian and maybe cry less"

To me, it matters not what he believes or how he reacts emotionally, what is important is, he seeks the truth the best he knows how and provides a active base from which to promote what he finds and makes people think and do their own research. He may not be the ideal messenger, but he is sincere and stands up for what he believes. He's not perfect and knows it, but he has and is doing a lot of good things to wake people up and provides things they can do to help change things.

F5 - "Only what you want to believe."

You certainly wear that statement well........

"No, just an aversion to giving a known huckster my money.
Wasn't raised to be a fool."

Only a fool would comment and give his whole cloth 'OPINION' about something he knows nothing about and never seen, especially when it is easily accessed for a $1, but then your lack of research attests for how you were raised and what you pride yourself in.

"Did you mean say that paid research news is NOT responsible for what they present and investigate?"

You know what I meant, but choose to twist it as you apparently only believe in news you don't have to pay for.......you should broaden and support your sources if they provide credible research..........

>>Face it, neither you or myself have the facts, so anything you say is 'OPINION'.<<

Face it, if you can, Beck never had the facts or else he would have revealed them by now.
You can't seem to face the fact that your Prophet never backed up his threat and is a fraud.

>>I know what I saw and heard which is more than I can say for you and your whole-cloth 'OPINIONS'<<

Only what you want to believe.

>>All I inferred was that you seem to have an aversion to paying for and finding out what Glenn or his "For The Record" research REALLY presents, instead of your whole cloth unsubstantiated 'OPINIONS", especially since right now it would only cost you $1.<<

No, just an aversion to giving a known huckster my money.

Misquote me much? Those are from two different posts a day apart.
In the future, try to keep my responses with the quotes I was responding to.

No surprise there. You must have forgotten when you said "but probably not since paying for researched news probably is in your universe as they have to be responsible for what they investigate and present".

Did you mean say that paid research news is NOT responsible for what they present and investigate?

Take your time, I know you must be a little confused about that.

>>Glenn has speculated with 'HIS OPINION' right or wrong. (Court is still in session)<<

Actually, Beck threatened the Government with information he claimed to have.

"I don’t bluff, I make promises. They have until Monday and then The Blaze will expose it.” he said.

Are you now claiming that Beck threaten the Government with his opinion?

So, for Beck, a promised threat by him now turns into a courtroom battle in order for him to divulge his secret information?

You couldn't make this absurdity up if you tried.

>>However once again you fail to observe and listen to the fact that "For The Record" is not coming from Glenn's mouth, it is presented by those involved in and with the investigation.

Didn't try at all. Didn't have to.

As you said, "Might be worth a $1 to you, but probably not since paying for researched news probably is in your universe as they have to be responsible for what they investigate and present."

Clearly, you think that paying for researched news legitimizes it.

Reminds me of the saying of one of Glenn's martyrs he recently compared himself to; "Who's more foolish, the fool, or the fool that follows him".

Um, he said he had documents that 'proved' that the Saudi Kid was a terrorist. That is more than just his opinion - hence the pending litigation...

This is the first explanation of what happened in 1916 that explains why there seems to be no solution to the Middle East conflict since 1948 Balfour Declaration, it is because there is earlier beginning of broken promises and lies that's not been taught. Listen/read to the end and tell me that it doesn't make sense why there will never be a two state solution. As to the solution..........?

"Glenn Beck broke down the history of the Middle East on his television program Thursday, focusing on a nearly 100-year-old agreement that he says is integral to understanding the motivations of the Islamic State: the Sykes-Picot Agreement.

If you do not understand the Sykes-Picot Agreement, Beck said, you cannot fully understand the Islamic State, or why the Israelis and the Palestinians will never reach a two-state solution.

Though many go back to 1948 and the creation of the modern state of Israel when examining the history of Middle Eastern conflicts, Beck said you actually have to go back to 1916 and World War I.

“This is the last time the Arab world had a united Islamic State led by a religious leader: the Ottoman Empire, the caliphate,” Beck began. “The Allies knew the Ottoman Empire could shut down key shipping routes and cripple Britain’s economy, France’s. … They had to neutralize it. So Great Britain sent over an Army officer from Britain, and his name was T.E. Lawrence. There was a movie made about him, a great movie with Peter O’Toole called ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’”

So, exactly like I said then;

US Embassy in Baghdad still has yet to be blown-up by the Marines Obama sent in months ago, despite Beck assuring his minions that he believes so strongly in it that he had to 'break the news'.

Spit - "US Embassy in Baghdad still has yet to be blown-up by the Marines Obama sent in months ago, despite Beck assuring his minions that he believes so strongly in it that he had to 'break the news'."

Silly man, must I keep posting what WAS REALLY said by Glenn as opposed to your altered and opinionated version? Apparently so..........: (Note the 'Is'?

Is Obama sending troops to Baghdad to destroy the U.S. embassy ahead of an attack?

"On Monday’s radio program, Glenn boldly declared that he 'hopes' the United States detonates its $1 billion Baghdad embassy before it falls into enemy hands. While Glenn was not sure exactly what is going on at the embassy, he knows from his own research that something is not right there."
......
"“This is 'my speculation', but I’m pretty sure of it,” Glenn said. “What the hell are 275 people going to do? Here’s my guess: Those are not just regular Marines. Those are Marines that are being sent directly to the embassy, not to defend, but to destroy.”

Due to the sheer size and scope of the embassy, Glenn believes that 'if' the President was really serious about defending the property, he would have sent a bigger team."

Glenn Beck Reads ‘11 Ways You Know You Live in a Country Run by Idiots’

“If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots,” he said. “If an 80-year-old woman can be strip-searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.”

You'll hafta ask those who were critical at the time - I wasn't.

"Or after the surge?"

Correct. But don't take my word for it, Google it on your own...

"I don't know. We kept troops in Germany, Japan, and Korea for decades after those wars."

Which of those were sectarian conflicts?

"sure glad none of that is going on in Iraq now, right?"

Helping stem the tide with a handful of airstrikes is a far cry from fighting the battles for them, no?

Was that the plan? I thought Bush went in to Iraq without a plan.
Was that the plan in 2003? Or in 2006? Or after the surge? And would Bush have removed 100% of our ground troops as 0bama did?
How long should we have stayed? Ten Years? Twenty years?
I don't know. We kept troops in Germany, Japan, and Korea for decades after those wars. Pundits at the time said Germany could never be governed. I guess those pundits turned out to be wrong.

You do realize Bush's plan called for a withdrawal of troops by 2011, right?

How long should we have stayed with a residual force? 10 years? 20? How long does it take for sectarian differences to 'work themselves out'? Military action from outsiders sure doesn't help to that end...

The time to hit the "ragtag" group of ISIS fighters was about June 13, this "column" would have been easy pickin's for our jets.

But 0bama didn't have a strategy as of early September. A couple on months late, a couple of vacations behind......

As for Beck, over the years he is bound to say things which seem contradictory to what he may have said in the past. He's on the radio three hours a day, a lot gets covered, and you have to get the context.
Iraq appears a "mistake" only because 0bama withdrew too early, the Iraqi security forces were not ready for prime time, and a lot of other reasons.

"Well, I'm not sure you do. If you did, you'd remember who got us into the war in 2003, with no clear post-invasion plan and no exit strategy and no understanding of the region.

Heck, even Beck said the war was a mistake.
After all this is a thread about him.
It only took him about twelve years to figure it out . . . . . . but even he has finally seen the light."

Exactly. I was for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan initially, hover as my understanding of the region's sectarian differences has increased, so has my understanding that the West will 'never' solve the region's issues through prolonged armed conflict.

We can help stem the tide as we are now against ISIS, but beyond that, no-way.

Rag-tag? This might be the best run 'insurgency' the World has seen to-date...

They are raking in millions by stealing oil in Syria and Iraq and selling it on the black market. Don't underestimate them, padawan.

She has no idea she just contradicted her initial point.

>>Some us actually remember what order things happened in..<<

Well, I'm not sure you do. If you did, you'd remember who got us into the war in 2003, with no clear post-invasion plan and no exit strategy and no understanding of the region.

Heck, even Beck said the war was a mistake.
After all this is a thread about him.
It only took him about twelve years to figure it out . . . . . . but even he has finally seen the light.

Yes, rookie, keep repeating that mantra - Republican got us into war....Republican got us into war......while Clinton was too busy (in a polite way) to respond to repeated islamist attacks on American installations. Some us actually remember what order things happened in......

Agreed. It would just be a continuation of the war a certain Republican got us into in the first place.

We must confront them in order to defeat them.

Easier to defeat a somewhat rag-tag group of 12,000, spread out over half of Iraq, than waiting until they have a half-million and more armaments. It will take a more experienced, mature President to shoulder the actual responsibilities that we place in our President. In other words, we had better elect a Republican to clean up this mess. Of course, then said Republican will be tagged with "getting us into another war" when nothing could be further from the truth.

>>Rep. Michele Bachmann joined Glenn in studio to discuss the threat that ISIS presents to the United States.<<

Michele Bachmann is one of the very few that can make Beck look somewhat sane and at times, the voice of reason.

Bachmann declared that ISIS only has 12,000 fighters, which will be no match for the U.S. military.

"This is something we can accomplish,"Bachmann said, to which Beck replied that he, like most Americans, is "tired of war."

When Beck wondered if it was actually possible to defeat Islamic militants like ISIS, Bachmann assured him that it was, saying that such groups have been defeated several times throughout history.

But despite those repeated defeats, Bachmann said, "they have an ideology that tells them to reconstitute" ... which seems to undermine her claim that defeating these sorts of groups is an easy thing to accomplish, does it not?

"Hmmmm......couldn't be concerned about the Embassy could he?"

So our Marines ARE going to blow it up now? Is that what you are trying to substantiate?

Is America in a state of denial on the dangers of ISIS?

Glenn criticized media networks for not showing the destruction caused by the radical Islam on 9/11, as most broadcasters have to get special permission to use that footage.

“How can we expect our kids to be prepared for what’s coming if we ourselves don’t know the truth and then we don’t tell them the truth,” Glenn said.

Later in the show, Rep. Michele Bachmann joined Glenn in studio to discuss the threat that ISIS presents to the United States. She specifically criticized the administration’s response, claiming that the ISIS forces only have about 12,000 people and America is simply not showing up for the fight.

“They won’t be defeated by being invited to the diplomacy table,” Rep. Bachmann said. “They’re at war with us. And they’re engaged in the war.”

“We need to address what the threat is and face it head on,” she added.

Rep. Bachmann warned that there are more Americans being held as hostages, and more could end up in the same position as James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

Oh by the way.......

Obama signs off on request for more U.S. troops in Baghdad

""The request he approved today will allow some previously deployed military personnel to depart Iraq, while at the same time providing a more robust, sustainable security force for our personnel and facilities in Baghdad," according to a statement released by the White House."

Hmmmm......couldn't be concerned about the Embassy could he?

"Glenn never said he is perfect and if he goofed, then I'm sure he will correct it and his source..."

I wouldn't hold my breath on that one if I were you...

"For all you Beck-o-phobes, those who know in their heart-of-hearts that Glenn Beck is always wrong and can never be right..."

When Beck chooses to be rational and not an alarmist preying on people's fears for money, he can be found to be right on topics. Absolutely.

I have agreed with john (and Beck) on a couple of occasions on his rips from The Blaze.
