Glenn Beck Rips Breitbart,
FOX News Border Coverage

Breitbart TV, by Ian Hanchett

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/20/2014 6:46:57 AM

Talk radio host Glenn Beck criticized Fox News and Breitbart for their reporting of his plan to visit the border to bring food, soccer balls, and teddy bears to illegal immigrants on the southern border. Beck complained about a lack of coverage of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joining his. “Nobody´s reading [The Blaze´s coverage of Ted Cruz going to border]. Our viewers and our readers are not even reading it. That should be the number-one retweeted story. If you like Ted Cruz [you should promote this story.] Where´s Breitbart on that story? Where´s Fox News on that story?” Beck stated. He added

Senator Cruz and Louie Gohmert should distance themselves from this loon ASAP. How in the world were they sucked in? Senator Mike Lee is the one who showed good sense.

Beck said: “This is about mercy not just for the people coming across the border. This about mercy to our own Americans.”

´Mercy´ would be convincing those parents in Central America to NOT send their children off to America on the death trains that are loaded with "the MS-13 gang members, the rapists and the killers."

´Mercy´ for Americans would be to halt the flood of all these illegals (two-thirds of illegal immigrant children approved for asylum already).

Beck is being ruled by his emotions and not his head.

The children are being used as human shields by their own parents and those who want to easy future access to America. Beck has been hoodwinked and his actions will enable and encourage the instigators of this nightmare to continue. He should be setting up his casserole stands *in the childrens´ home countries*, providing his warm fuzzies as an incentive for them to not BEGIN their unlawful and horrific journeys.

Glen get over your self. No one is reading the story because it´s trivial. No one cares that you´re giving soccer balls or teddy bears to illegals. We all know they will be taken care of better than our own citizens. Now Glen if you were making a effort to send these so called "children" back to their parents quickly then that might be a story worth reading.

“When you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward."

I quit listening to Glen Beck well before he left Fox. His fame went to his head, it´s all about money and delusions of grandeur for him, now. This is just insane. Most of these *children* are older than 16....many have gang involvement. The insinuation that there are so many small children among them is mostly false. I can´t believe he doesn´t realize this...maybe he does, but is trying to push his own, twisted agenda. UGH.

What isn´t made obvious here is that Beck limited coverage of his event to his own The Blaze. I assume he thought his Blaze would get lots of traffic. But, it didn´t, and now he´s raising Cain to grab the publicity that hasn´t already happened by complaining that no one is reading his Blaze.

Demented in so many ways. Withdraw, Senator Cruz. There´s nothing to be gained by showing up with this crazy person.

Hes like a supersonic plane with no rudder. He bounces from one thing to the next with all the enthusiasm that went into the first. Very hard to watch or listen to.
Its like if a neighbor wants to organize a big block party. We all pitch in and help and its fun. If he wants to organize one every week it becomes too much and participation drops off markedly. Thats where Glenn is now. Too much too often.

Yesterday, I was curious and visited The Blaze, and even though they didn´t feature an article about Ted Cruz accompanying Beck to the border, the posters were making their voices known and it wasn´t positive for either Beck or Cruz. Furthermore, his whining sounds very much like Obama right now, blaming others for their lack of coverage of his "mission of mercy."

I must say, even though Beck is one card short of a full deck, he seems to be a good businessman. Everything he does has a business angle, and to his credit, he´s had some success. Sometimes I´ve wondered if he´s a televangelist pretending to be radio jock / publisher. As a mormon, helping the homeless is something they do naturally. It´s part of what they do. However unlike Mitt Romney, where Beck went wrong was to advertise it. This type of activity shouldn´t be announced or exploited for gain. It backfired and he´s losing members and donations. Yep, Beck may have jumped the shark.

Beck has always been a bit "off". Never liked him but he´s gone from being a weepy nut to a problem for the GOP. Cruz and others need to stay away, far away from him.

And if Beck is concerned about the children of Central America, he should take his checkbook and head south. Set up a charity down there, pass out soccer balls in their home country and encourage them to stay there.

Speaking of Jesus:

verb \k?-´mi-z?-?rat\:

to express sadness or sympathy for someone who has experienced something unpleasant

I would remind everyone that it was Jesus who upset the ´establishment´ by visiting the sick and infirm (even curing them!), hanging around with sinners and tax collectors, and talking about love and forgiveness.

I think Beck´s heart is in the right place, but he has lost his way. Conservative-type people usually get too judgmental and it is important to remember that one´s actions are one´s own, period.

Beck is an avid showman & an admittedly flawed guy, but if only Fox & BBTV/bigs are giving a smidge of coverage to his Mercy Tour, and nothing from state sponsored media, why are the heads of Big Media ignoring the ´fact´ that majority of ´unaccompanied minors´ are working age men? I think tv lobbyists donate to campaigns too. Both left and right powers-that-be are still angling for amnesty reform and giving Beck or Cruz any positive airtime nicks the strength of their fragile balloon being floated to save the ´refugees´ from their plight.

There is the conservative, populist Beck and there is the preachy Mormon Beck. While there is considerable overlap (picture a Venn diagram), this issue separates the two. His Mormon side is front and center right now.

As to Cruz joining in the visit to the border, we must wait and see how that plays out and what message it may send. Too much is unknown at this point.

Regardless, this is another example of the dominance of (illegal) immigration as an issue.

If not for Beck, many of us would not now fully understand Cloward Piven, the Tides Foundation and Saul Alinsky´s strategy just to name a few. He has provided America with an outstanding education and for that I commend him.

That being said, a few red flags over the years have troubled me: the tiff with Breitbart, the deliberate mischaracterization of Mr. Bundy´s statement about black slaves and now this. My eyes are wide open now.

I honestly think Glenn Beck means well, it is simply that can´t see the forest for the trees. It is either that, or he is "using" these kids at our border the same way the gun banners used the Sandy Hook kids. Simply to promote an agenda, without really giving one hoot about the real issue.

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me

The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem...

They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added.

In response to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, atheists are sitting around knitting. And in this time of national crisis, they are knitting bricks. Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their ‘exclusive´ and I´ll give

Bill Cosby played the devoted father and loving family man on television for years, but off camera, Mr. Nice Guy had a volatile temper, played the Hollywood big shot and was a hard-partying philanderer. With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home. Cosby´s world came crashing down when an old lover from the summer of 1975, Shawn Berkes, approached him with a child she claimed was his and
