    @ndoilworker, Nobody with a brain in their head cares.I’m so sorry that this has lead to a strong degree of butthurt but it is what it is. Good day sir or madam.

    This is a much different comment section than I remember. I had might have just as well just posted this on Youtube or Facebook lol.

    @Cirrus, Don’t be such a sheep, your original comment suggests that you are smarter than that and that you experience empathy so please don’t sell yourself short for the sake of fear.

    I had something smart to say but SDRRepublic64 beat me to the punch with this “Oh, like they impeached Obama? YOU opened your mouth too soon and with something not very smart.”

    @ndoilworker “I decided to put this in the Social Issues and Civil Unrest forum because Mr. Beck is an agent of exactly these two topics. He is consistently incorrect in his predictions and is also constantly grasping at straws to gain whatever ratings at whatever turn and whatever cost. Mr. Beck does not care about the American people, Mr. Beck doesn’t care about anyone but himself. So without further ado I present some of his failed predictions:” A direct quote from your awful link. This is followed by 9 stretched attempts at painting Beck as a sociopath as well as 5 utterly irrelevant and totally context-less video links that were designed to reinforce that idea. Nice try buddy but anyone who has an ounce of common sense can see right through you. I’m not so sure that such people are present at the moment but here’s to hoping.

    @SDRRepublic64 I can’t deny that a lot of his predictions can be easily perceived as wrong right off the bat. In fact, that was one of the largest contributing factors to why I distanced myself from him in the first place. However, it seems that a good number of them actually do tend to come to fruition. The problem seems to be that he tends to jump too early on a lot of them. Beck’s 2012 in 2010 is our new normal now in 2016. Sure he was off by 4 to 6 years but he wasn’t wrong and I think that the same pattern can be observed in a lot of what he has to say.

    @SDRRepublic64 “SUPPORT SOMEONE (whether you believe him or not) who says he will do the right thing for us, things that will help turn this country back to our Constitution, at least, try to.

    LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!” This is the exact same mentality that put Hitler into power. To offer blind faith to a person’s words is beyond foolish. Read over your own comment and then tell me how much sense it makes to elect a sociopath that tells you what you want to hear. The last part of your comment does make a lot of sense and if I were asked then I would lead but what I will not do is vote for either one of the horrible choices that are being presented to us. These are revolutionary times and the comfort associated with electing someone within a working system is nonexistent but it’s something that no one wants to really believe that they don’t have. If the American people had any clue what the path that we are on is actually leading to then we would have nutted up and marched on Washington back in 2012. Now we are left with two bad choices and most of us feel a strong need to side with one or the other when the truth is that we’ve had our decision stolen from us and we’re all too damned apathetic to do anything about it.

    @ndoilworker, Did I do that or were you just judging me from position of ignorance? Your point about principals makes no sense as they are objective rather than based on opinion. This means that if I’m right then you are are wrong or vice verse. There is no gray area here. If I were to tell you that the sun rises in the north and sets in the south would you regard that as a competent statement just because it’s what I feel?

  • [-2] August 22, 2016 at 7:14am

    No, and that perception is exactly what the problem is. It’s either the devil or the deep blue sea for cowards but the truth is that this is our country, this is our freedom and we need to stand for it or we will lose it completely. Please stop playing this stupid political game and take a look at what’s right in front of you. A generation of mankind has never passed without facing the challenges that we have before us today and our forefathers were wise enough to read and learn from history in such a way that they set us up to avoid repeating it yet that is exactly what we are doing. America will fall to cowardice if people fail to stand on principal. If that means electing the lesser of two enemies then that is the unfortunate reality for the time being. If that means a vote for Trump then so be it, if that means a vote for Hillary then so be it. At the end of the day the future is set and we need to start thinking about how to deal with it when it comes.

    It doesn’t so much as it has to do with disagreeing with God in my case. Beck is a man and a flawed man that i respect but God worked through him to save me and I credit none (not even Glenn) for that. God saved my life plane and simple and it doesn’t really matter which medium he used to accomplish that task because it has been achieved and I have nothing but gratitude to offer in return. We are all human and as such we all have an opinion and I respect yours but I also must respectfully disagree on the premise that a lot of the things that he says don’t make sense right now but they will make a whole lot of sense in the world that is to come. I am sorry for your nephew’s situation. I can offer little by way of helpful council on this but I would wholeheartedly recommend Roy Masters and his meditation. It played it’s part in freeing me from hell and I think that it could do the same for others.

    Something just hit me hard and out of the blue. I’ve felt a disconnect with Beck for a long time when it comes to his overview of this election. I’ve always been skeptical of Trump but I rested for a long time on the thought that he may be that second chance. America’s saving grace. I wanted to believe that but it’s apparent to me at this time that I would be lying to myself in order to stave off my darkest fears so that I could believe such a thing completely. The truth is that Glenn Beck is right and I’ve been afraid to admit that for the longest time because the implications are terrifying. I owe Mr. Beck an apology for this. I’ve gone so far as to poke fun at his weight and regard his position as slanderous and I’m ashamed right now because of those things. It was ego plain and simple. I thought that I knew better but I didn’t. God gave Glenn the truly unique gift of fore site. That gift saved my life as a young man who struggled with a drug addiction. I still remember in 2005 when he made an address to the average worker stating (I’m paraphrasing) that “You need to make yourself valuable to your employer in order to survive what is coming.” I kicked heroin at 18 because of that statement and began to make the best of myself from then forward. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without his influence.When all is said and done even the best of us can be twisted and I was but now I’m not. It takes courage to stand on principal in these times. Please stand with me.

    Sorry for being both cynical and possibly ignorant but are you serious? Because if you are then I think that I might just bake some bleach into a cake and then eat it lol.

  • August 1, 2016 at 6:55pm

    Thank you but I sincerely hope that I am wrong. Food for thought, I often wonder if America is really special or if it just has the opportunity to be because if you look at the Roman Empire it literately did a lot of the same things as America in it’s infancy but then went on to nullify them with evils that any decent person would find nearly impossible to imagine. What do you think? Are we on the same path? Will this pattern repeat itself in thousand year cycles the same as history tends to repeat itself decade after decade? Are we really moving quickly to an end or is the new normal simply so shocking to the average person that an end is the only possibility that they can conceive of? I don’t put a lot of stake in those that claim that they can predict the future but Nostradamus had some downright creepily accurate premonitions regarding events several millennia after his passing and according to some interpretations, where we are now is closer to the end but still very much in the middle. Given enough time, we could see America become the chief practitioner of evil in the world and freedom, the undying and beautiful thing that it is, is very likely to show up in places where we least expect it to. Afghanistan for instance or perhaps even China. We are on the verge of a new world and I believe that it will bring with it familiar horrors as well as a sovereign people who are willing to stand and fight against them. Sorry for the essay but I am interested. What do you think?

    I’m admittedly a much better historian and practitioner of common sense than I am a theologian so these passages are unfamiliar to me. Reading them gives me chills though because it is exactly what I’m talking about and it’s in the bible and I didn’t even know it. I think you just gave me one of many good reasons to revisit the good book. Thank you, you made my day:)

    Up is now down and wrong is now right in America. What has happened before will happen again because we as individuals and as a whole have repeated the mistakes of history. The Roman empire began and lasted for two centuries as a beautiful culture much like America was and still should be but then it fell into 4 centuries of decline before utterly destroying itself. Why? Because people became fat and happy, lazy, over indulgent and too accepting of everything perverse and twisted. They sacrificed principal for pleasure and rejected unwelcome truths that would have served to shine the light of conscience onto their actions. The horrors that ensued are corrupting to even have knowledge of and they are on the way once again because we have not learned from history and given yet again another chance at thriving within blessed and free nation under God we are all fools because we take for granted what we actually have and refuse to imagine the true consequences of losing it. If ever there was a time to search your own soul and find the strength to be honest with yourself about what the real and objective truth is, even if it offends some part of you that is in denial then that time is now. I say this with a heavy heart, people are drawing lines. Dark and light are becoming more apparent even within our own families, violence is escalating worldwide and we have only 4 months left before dictator A or B are appointed to lead us into the ground. Wake up and smell the napalm people.

    This could be a part of a much bigger move. If we continue to see this kind of violence then we’ll know for sure. I for one hope not because most American’s hearts would stop at the sight of what these radicals want to bring to the US. They want to rape and murder our women and children while we watch and they want to use social media to broadcast it from coast to coast. It sounds crazy but didn’t a gay couple just get tortured to death in front of their baby on Facebook live? The intent is clear but the timeline is not. This could be the start of hell on earth or it could just be another temporary escalation but the fact remains that they already got away with it and they will do it again and again and if a time comes when they decide to launch a coordinated strike against civilians then we are going to have to adjust to the fact that our enemy is so obvious that they are shouting at us and telling us exactly who they are and we need to listen and respond.

    Thanks for the info I had no clue about that Minister. It explains some of the herd mentality surrounding this misdirected hatred. Still, it makes about as much sense as hating all Germans because Hitler was um Austrian. I totally agree with live and let live and I don’t waste my time hating people even if my beliefs are the polar opposite of theirs. However, I will rightly take issue when religion in general gets lumped in with the one religion in the world that is still living in the 16th century and using it’s fanaticism to justify murdering people. Honestly, the thing that would make the most sense to do is for all of the groups of people who are actively discriminated against by Islamic extremism to unite against the these extreme views and actions. That will never happen though because what one religion causes all religions seem to get blamed for. People really need to unplug from social media and educate themselves on reality because the truth is that if you’re gay or non Muslim and you happen to live in a part of the world where the radicals have control then regardless of how much you sympathize with them you had better sprout wings because you’re about take a short trip from the top of a building to the rocks on the ground below.

    If the leftist get their way then he’ll be a straight, white, Christian and conservative man who did this in the names of Trump and Jesus. I wish I was kidding but that actually seems to be the unambiguous spin in some circles. If you see the truth then be glad because in this blinded world there isn’t much more that you can do but hang on to the notion that you are in fact sane and that reality is obvious and unchanging as a thing to be observed and conformed to rather than something to be changed based on how it makes you feel. If this rings true then you are not alone but you are rare and you will face persecution but in the end it will all be worth it though because unlike the legions of walking dead that surround you and me and everyone like us you still have your soul intact which is all that means anything in the end. The meek shall inherit the earth after all and meek doesn’t mean weak. It is in my opinion the state of a person who is willing to listen and do what God asks of them.

    By the look of that gut Glenn could “fast” for months without experiencing the consequences of starvation.

  • [4] February 21, 2016 at 4:12am

    Well I can’t say that I’m broken up over this but it is a pleasant surprise to see him end it with some class. He earned more of my respect with this single action than he did throughout his entire campaign.
