Glenn Beck To Bring Soccer
Balls, Hot Meals To Illegals:
´We Must Open Our Hearts´

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 9:29:21 AM

Glenn Beck said bringing soccer balls, teddy bears, and hot meals to illegal immigrants who have been detained along the U.S.-Mexico border will be the most right thing he has ever done. On July 19, Beck will travel to McAllen, Texas, because he believes Americans must "open our hearts" to the illegal immigrant children who have been unlawfully entering the country. "I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this – and I have never, ever taken a position that is more right than this," Beck claimed, according to The Blaze. Beck said helping illegal immigrant children, most of whom

Comments:
Heavy sigh. Beck also emphasized that the United States should be accessible to "all those fleeing poverty and violence." Really? That would include most of the world. What about Americans who are suffering???

Glenn Beck is another who rarely passes up a chance for a cheap headline.

Beck has severe mental problems in my opinion. That is the one true connection he has with the left. Hard to listen to his radio show with all of his emotional breakdowns.

I´ll admit I´ve never listened or watched Glen Beck very much (perhaps a total of one hour). There´s just something about him which seems . . ., how can I say it. I guess off key, is the closest I can come to explaining my impression of him.

Cut off 100% of all welfare everywhere right now, and I suspect most of those illegals would turn around and go back home. It´s not the people I object to. It´s the fact most of them are here to sponge up my tax dollars.

Beck should bring these underaged pawns one-way airline tickets back to Guatemala or El Salvador or wherever; he can hand them the free lunches and soccer balls as they board the plane.

Beck has a point.

What if Conservatives adopted these children and brought them up conservative. The chances of the Conservatives winning the conservative vote will go up exponentially. Plus this would backfire on Obama big time.

What #6 said!

They are NOT fleeing anything. What they are doing is Seeking FREE STUFF. We have it here, they don´t have it at "home."

They don´t want to become nor have any intention of becoming AMERICANS, and those here cutting lawns,etc. have shown ABSOLUTELY no desire to become Americans.

Get a grip Glenn - like #8 said, buy some airline tickets with those $$ and send ´em home.

The two Glenn Becks: anti-establishment rebel and Mormon evangelist.

He was effective as an anti-establishment Tea Party advocate in 2010. The evangelist Beck has been much less effective since then.

Like a poster above, I´ve watched/listened to very little Beck over the years. To me, he´s always been a gold plated phony; out for Bec; in live with himself

My son on the other hand, has always been a fan --until recently. A month or so ago, he told me I was right; Beck is a Loony Toon.

I was reminded of that old saw about the older YOU get, the smarter your PARENTS get.

Hey Glenn. Since these kiddos had to ENTER and PASS THROUGH Mexico to get here, it´s obvious that their goal and final destination was the US. If they were just fleeing conditions in their home country, why didn´t they just stop in Mexico? Or why didn´t they choose shorter journeys to Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica or Cuba?
So Glenn. Why don´t you just drive across the border and station yourself with your hot dishes and teddy bears---luring these kids to take refuge from their home countries in Mexico instead of the US? Or do you think perhaps that they are more interested in the promise of living free in America?

These children are not orphans. They will not be up for adoption by Conservatives or anyone else.

As for Glenn Beck, he is more than a little daft. It seems as if he experiences a vision (of dubious source), flips out and goes on a rant. When you are not grounded in the truth to begin with, you will be open to all sorts of nonsense.

Even though life in an America as a Representative Republic is hanging by a thread, I must admit that Glenn still has the choice to do what he thinks is right. My concern is, does he have the right to expose his staff to the myriad diseases that the illegal aliens are bringing across the open border with them?


Won´t cute and cuddly teddy bears harbor diseases? Any ideas on this from the medical community, the one that is still permitted to talk that is.

Beck was instrumental in connecting the dots of lots of the foundations, politicians, Soros, communists, SEIU, etc., etc. I liked watching his show but I have to say sometimes it made me feel depressed, oppressed with no hope of any way out. It just seemed it was much too big and like an octopus with tentacles everywhere.

I use to listen to him prior to his Fox days. He was a jovial, funny talker. I stopped listening after he left Fox.

I wonder if he went a little wacko when he uncovered all those dots he connected and realized just how ..up the creek without a paddle we are?

Maybe he felt the only thing that he could do was to turn to the ´open our hearts´ route. Dontknow???

John Kerry chose the third anniversary of U.S. citizen Amir Hekmati’s "detention on false espionage charges" during a visit with his family in Iran in 2011 to "respectfully" call on the government of Iran to release Hekmati and several other U.S. citizens held or missing in that country. Saeed Abedini and Jason Rezaian, the latter a Washington Post reporter, are also being held.

At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people´s pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.” “The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said. “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report. Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that President Obama may postpone his sweeping executive actions on immigration until after the midterm elections. Why? Because Democrats are begging him to: The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue. Some Democratic senators have said he should wait for Congress to pass legislation. Wait. Why would they want to do that? Aren’t the policies Obama is proposing on immigration wildly popular? That’s what they keep telling us, anyway. “I promise you, the American people

“Oops.” In the wake of criticism over a two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the NFL has established a six-game unpaid ban for personnel who violate the league’s policy on domestic violence, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. A second incident would be punished by a lifetime ban from the league, Goodell said in a letter and memo to the owners of the league’s 32 teams. Without referring to Rice by name, he acknowledged in his letter that he made the wrong decision in that case. “I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will,” he

Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have voted. It

Sen. Al Simpson (R-WY) retired from the Senate in 1997, but he is now celebrating another political victory in his state. The retired senator ran and won his election as a member of the Republican precinct committee in his hometown of Cody, Wyoming, together with his wife Ann. Both Simpsons earned a majority of the vote, effectively pushing out Tea Party Republicans in the precinct. (Snip) Together, the Simpsons now have the ability to influence the conversation, particularly the direction of the Republican party in Wyoming. “I’m not against anybody, I just want to be in the room,” he said.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, is resigning from the campaign. Benton, who previously held high-level roles in Ron Paul and Rand Paul’s campaigns, confirmed his resignation Friday evening, explaining that he is stepping down after his name surfaced in news reports about a scandal involving the 2012 presidential campaign. Earlier this week, a former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to charges related to receiving money from the Ron Paul presidential campaign in return for his endorsement. Benton, who was Paul’s political director, denies any wrongdoing but admits it has become a distraction for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson is continuing to hint that he will run for president in 2016, though pledges that if elected he won’t become a “politician” in the traditional sense. “I will tell you that I’m not a politician, and I don’t believe in political correctness,” Carson told the crowd Friday at a political summit in Texas. “So I may say something that will offend someone. And I frankly never plan on becoming a politician. It doesn’t mean that I won’t do something in public office, but I won’t be a politician in the process.” Carson made the comments Friday afternoon in Dallas at Americans for Prosperity’s Defending the American Dream Summit.

The latest Gallup poll on President Obama job performance is out. At the top line, things could be worse for the president and his party. 44 percent approve of his performance, while 53 percent disapprove. That’s considerably worse than in the run-up to the 2010 election, and certainly cause for concern among Democrats. But Dems won’t be surprised by this split which, as I said, could be worse. The intensity numbers, however, are terrible for Obama and the Dems. 39 percent of Americans (essentially 2 in 5) say they strongly disapprove of the president’s performance. Only 17 percent say they strongly approve.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted.

U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
