Another trip through the fantasy realm of GlennBeckistan.?

'And So It Begins': Glenn Beck, The Shemitah, And The End Of America.

As a general rule, whatever movie or book that Ralphie Glenn Beck has recently seen or read is absolutely amazing and contains all of the answers that America needs at this moment and so everyone should see or read it immediately!

As Ralphie Beck is currently reading Jonathan Cahn's "The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America's Future, the World's Future, and Your Future!," naturally he is convinced that it is the most important book currently in print and so he is lecturing his staff about it, as he did during yesterday's televised staff meeting.

This book is a follow-up to Cahn's "The Harbinger," which was quite possibly one of the stupidest books ever written, purporting to explain how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were foretold in the Book of Isaiah even though the New World had yet to be discovered, and how the subsequent construction of the Freedom Tower was an act of defiance against God that will lead to further judgment.

The Shemittah is a Sabbath year on the Jewish calendar during which fields are to be left fallow, no agriculture is to take place, and debts are to be forgiven. It began last month and, according to Cahn's new book, these requirements are going to be imposed upon America in the coming year by God whether we like it or not.

Ralphie Beck is, of course, entirely convinced that this is true, telling his staff that because America made an "Abrahamic covenant with God" upon the nation's founding, we are being held to the obligations of the Shemitah year and "it is wiping us out" because "God is warning us."

"I don't think it ends the way we want it to end," Beck said. "But we've entered a new period. I can feel it. We've entered a new period. And so it begins".

"...and so it begins."
In other words, "Forget when I said before that it was beginning, it starts now.
No, seriously, I mean it this time...

For those who may not know, "and so it begins" is Beck's shorthand phrase for his belief that everything he's been warning about for the last several years is now all coming true.

By the way, Glenn, Texas hasn't been the "Republic of" since 1845.

"But Beck said Houston is succumbing to “madness” by investigating religious figures who tried to overturn a new ordinance allowing people who are questioning their sexuality to use male and female bathrooms."

Oh, I thought this was going to be something serious, since a comparison was made regarding terrorisms.

Instead, it is just about making sure those who are transgendered continue to have no rights.

I guess women never use men's restrooms, nor are women ever attacked in restrooms by sexual predators already...

Glenn Beck Finally Has His Screaming Meltdown Over Ebola

Firstly, his minions should donate to Glenn so he can get a heater in the studio.
Yesterday he had four layers on.
The day before, he was dressed as William Jennings Bryan..
Today it's a hat and a huge coat.
Or maybe he has a fever from the early stages of Ebola. Or maybe he thinks he does. Who knows.

After warning again that God is going to drastically humble this nation, Beck then commenced screaming.

Performance art? Check
Religious fanaticism? Check
Fear mongering? Check

I'm kind of disappointed that he didn't cry.

So if Ebola paranoia is what you're craving, and it's what his minions crave, Beck is your one stop shop for all Ebola all the time.

Obvious errors or mistakes have been made on several occasions already which could lead to a Typhoid Mary scenario. These errors should not have been made, especially allowing a nurse who treated the Ebola patient, who's fellow nurse contracted the disease, being allowed to leave in a plane with an elevated temperature! That is NOT being cautious and prudent and she should not have been allowed to travel for at least 21 days to be on the safe side for the rest of the country. I'm sorry, but I don't trust the government to ensure protocol is adhered to, which also leads to individuals who brush protocol aside whether due to ignorance or stupidity. People have to take their own responsibility for taking care of themselves, family and society and not depend on the government who's track record is usually a day late and a dollar short.

Second nurse with Ebola called CDC before flight, they approved travel

The depends on the subject matter. There have been times where I did indeed agree with Glenn which you seem to already have forgotten about in your defense of the non-stop parroting of Glenn's thoughts, feelings, beliefs and theories...

"and you are apparently unwilling to discuss why you disagree"

Interesting, coming form the person that doesn't know if he agrees or disagrees with Glenn on 'anything'...

"perhaps afraid of being attacked for your answers or finding you might find things where you agree with Glenn, which might be intolerable in your universe as a Glenn basher.........."

Oops, those darn assumptions - see above ;) Talk about being afraid of 'being attacked for your answers'. How ironic that you cannot provide a yes or no answer when asked if you agree with Glenn.

"whatever floats your boat as I don't expect you to discuss or support your views."

As you have 'clearly' stated, Glenn typically blathers on about his opinions, theories and feelings. Given there are no 'facts' to discuss, what else are we supposed to discuss?

“The CDC should be telling people [what to do in this situation],” Beck said. “I’m a businessman. I have four employees now that live in that complex. They don’t live near that apartment. I don’t think they’re infected. It doesn’t seem reasonable. What do I do? This is the problem with the CDC. What do we do? We’re not experts, you nincompoops. You are!”

"Welp, when no rebuttal is mentioned why bother posting something if you don't believe it?

Or are you that big of a Beck schill that you'll parrot his talking points, even if you don't necessarily believe them? That isn't better, btw..."

As I indicated before, I do not believe you are interested in anything but bashing Glenn. Perhaps you chose to ignore what I stated "You attempt to insinuate that if someone posts a link from someone else that that person is a 'blind' follower because they can't think for themselves which invalidates the poster 'rather' than discuss the subject of the topic instead of the poster.

One doesn't help himself or other by bad mouthing others without discussing the subject in question. I post what I post in an attempt to bring about discussion of the subject, however what I get most is a bashing of Glenn rather than addressing the subject. As I have said on many occasions, Glenn is not perfect even by his own word. He gives his opinions and beliefs same as you. You can believe them or not, same as myself. I'd be a fool if I said I believe an opinion or a theory if I wasn't very certain, however I like to hear other's opinions, facts and sources of the subject to help me decide for myself. I'm not out to prove Glenn right or wrong, only to get discussion of the subjects he discusses.

"Both are still theories, and both I believe in. So, care to take a stand on the theory you parroted from Beck? Or are you still going to run from a simple question?"

"Do you agree with this inane approach Beck has proposed? I bet you won't answer this one either..."

CDC director’s Ebola response is disturbing

“This is so easy. We’ve done it before,” Glenn said. “‘Have you been to West Africa? Can I see your passport? You’ve been to West Africa? Great. You over here for 25 days.’ You stay over there for 25 days. We isolate you away from the shores of America for 25 days. It’s just that easy. It’s really not — we don’t have to shut everything off.”

Glenn said we need to put anyone who has been over in West Africa and entering the country under observation for twenty-five days to monitor for signs of Ebola."

You apparently have a difficult time understanding how your use of the phrase "true Beck minion" is unnecessary to the discussion and acts as derogatory statement with the attempt to invalidate the poster and what's posted. You attempt to insinuate that if someone posts a link from someone else that that person is a 'blind' follower because they can't think for themselves which invalidates the poster rather than discuss the subject of the topic instead of the poster.

"So what are you waiting for to make your 'final' determination?"

As with any 'theory' it is theory and not fact, so for anyone to 'believe in it or believe it is true' is folly unless one is very foolish. More facts and data will prove out whether it's true or close to true. Hopefully others would not believe so much in their theories that they lose sight of incoming facts or information.

"Is the US Embassy in Baghdad still standing, by chance? Or have the US Marines that Obama sent in to blow it up completed their mission?"

The First Thing Glenn Beck Says the U.S. Needs to Do Before Taking Further Action Against the Islamic State

“We haven’t learned the lesson,” he said. “We don’t even know what they are fighting about. Nobody even knows about Sykes-Picot. This is why they are fighting. They are going back to World War I — the reestablishment of the caliphate.”

Beck explained that the Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916 was “British and French coming together and redesigning the entire Middle East, making it so dictators had to be put in those places. So, when we come and say, ‘Oh, we’re just going to go ahead and get rid of the dictators’ — you are helping them establish the caliphate.”

He also predicted that the U.S. will help oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which will be followed by the toppling of the rulers in Jordan and ultimately unrest will spread across the Middle East.

So much energy spent on deflecting a simple question - I wonder why that is?"

Interesting when someone would accept someone else's answer, but insists that an answer must be either/or and won't explain why it has to be that way, but then that's just the way some people roll I guess, they think they must have it their way or the highway. Sounds a bit oppressive to me, I really thought some here were above that. SMH

"...it appears the Congressman was calling for air travel to be restricted in the wake of Ebola concerns."

Which is utterly pointless, since you can't stop people from travelling to the region.

The only effect this would have would be to further cripple already crumbling economies in the region. It would not reduce the risk of somebody contracting Ebola and coming to the US, just as screening passengers is mostly for show as well.

"...unthinkable corruption and greed transforming Washington into a high stakes game of self-preservation where money buys power, the rich get richer and the law makers are above the law."

Transforming? Somebody is late to the game...

"My, my I can't believe how important my answer is to you. Does my answer depend on whether you agree with Glenn and his theories? As there is no reason why you want to know the answer to that question, there is no reason for me to answer it further than a logical maybe."

Still no answer... You do know how to spell 'yes' or 'no', and which each means, yes? I must admit, I did make this basic assumption that you were capable.

So much energy spent on deflecting a simple question - I wonder why that is?

Glenn agrees with… gulp… Alan Grayson?

"In what marks the first (and likely the last) time Glenn has ever agreed with Alan Grayson, it appears the Congressman was calling for air travel to be restricted in the wake of Ebola concerns. Glenn reads what Grayson wrote on July 29th and it’s hard to disagree with any of it — but is it too late to do anything?"

Spit - "Do. You. Agree. With. His. Theory.

Good grief man, take a stand... That is the most basic yes or no question you can get."

"Sorry Spit, the running is in your head, it is not a yes or no question as it does not deal with facts, it's his theory."

Prophet Beck's "theory" (insert laughter here) only shows how little he understands the region.

"I have an answer that nobody else does. But I want you to know again, it is a theory.” ~ Beck.

Spit - "What inane tangent are you speaking of now?

Do you agree with Beck's theory you posted - yes or no? Very simple, I'm not sure why you are running from it..."

Sorry Spit, the running is in your head, it is not a yes or no question as it does not deal with facts, it's his theory. With three-valued logic contains the values of right, wrong, and maybe. Yes, it could be true, no it could be false, it lacks conclusive facts. It's a theory, I believe it could be true, I also believe it could be false, it may be true, it may be false, it might be true, it might be false. Maybe it's true, maybe it's false.

What do you wish to learn if I were to answer either way or maybe? Share whether you believe the theory or not.

Spit - "Why do you continue to deflect a simple 'yes' or 'no' question with a question?"

The deflection is in your mind, Do you still beat your wife? It is not a yes or no question, except possibly in your mind.
