Noooo! Latest polls in South Carolina: Newt on top

America must be collectively hitting the 2012 election panic button as Newt Gingrich is surging once again in the polls. Are GOP voters so desperate for someone who can ‘beat Obama’ they are willing to overlook the fact they are a blatant big government progressive just to defeat him? If Newt continues to surge, apparently so.

The latest polls out of South Carolina show a slight drop off for Mitt Romney, an increase for Santorum, and an increase for Newt Gingrich, giving him the biggest lead he has had in quite some time. Why should this disturb you? Well, just remember who South Carolina gave us last election—Progressive RINO, Senator John McCain.

This is a truly incredible turn of momentum considering the news that has been surrounding Newt Gingrich lately. Not only are the mainstream media news outlets already openly collecting ammo against the former Speaker of the House from his less-than-perfect past, but his record of being a progressive is well documented. After three years hearing from Tea Partiers, speaking to conservatives, and sharing the progressive history with his audience, Glenn’s reaction to the poll numbers shouldn’t surprise you.

GLENN: America, you hire Newt Gingrich, if you run Newt Gingrich R A, you’re going to lose the election. But if you if you go for Newt Gingrich and he strangely does win the election, come what may. It’s on your head. It’s on your head. And that’s great. Maybe I’m all wrong and it’s going to be sunshine and lollipops. But I’m telling you this guy is a progressive. And you remember when I will ring the bell equally on both sides. Do you remember when I told you that there’s going to come a time when the progressives, somebody’s going to want to grab the pendulum. Well, we have the conditions that are being sown right now. And the pendulum is going to stop, possibly stop temporarily. Like it did in the Civil War with Abraham Lincoln, where he suspends. Now, are you going to have somebody to release the pendulum? Because things in this country are getting out of control. Do you have somebody that understands the Constitution or do you have somebody that understands the progressive movement and has modeled himself after every bad progressive president we’ve ever had. He extolls the progressive presidents. Now, do you want a progressive that understands that the Declaration of Independence is not important and the Constitution is ever changing. Do you want a big government progressive? We already have one. Has this whole fight been a lie? Has this whole Tea Party thing been a lie? Because if you are voting for Newt Gingrich, you are voting for everything, everything that I thought you were against. I thought you wanted a man of character that was going to tell you the truth, be able to be trustworthy. I thought that’s what you wanted. I thought you wanted somebody that was for small government. I thought when you were against government healthcare, you were actually against government healthcare. But maybe you just didn’t like the brand that Barack Obama was giving you and so you want government healthcare from your guy. I thought you were against all of these things that he is for. I thought you understood the progressive movement if you found it evil. If the you vote for Newt Gingrich, you’re a liar. To yourself. You are lying. You have lied either to me, to yourself for the last two years because there’s no way, no way to justify this in your mind. No way.

    Glenn – many have been sounding the warning bell for a long time; the problem is that many on the Right have been led to conclude that Obama must be defeated by SOMEONE. They have not looked the next portion down the line, assuming wrongly that anyone getting in will be able to overturn Obama and the Progressives nightmare.

    If another Progressive like Newt enters office, the nation is still ended.

    What America must make sure of is that in the ending of Obamas office term via elections, that we do not replace one evil progressive with another evil progressive in the same office.

    No matter how it is done or acclaimed; to change one evil for another is still evil.

    There’s only one candadite that isn’t a big government guy. And interestingly enough he is the only one with enough outside the GOP establishment support to beat Obama. He’s the only one that has made a career on upholding the Constituion. (something I once thought Glenn Beck supported)

    As is usually the case, facts and reason will reduce the lefties to sputtering incomprehensibility. People like them are, stuck in perpetual adolescence will never get beyond their feelings that something is just not fair. They never recognize that the only “fairness” that should be and can be rightly imposed is the removal of obstacles to personal success. Anything else is simply thievery, and right now we have far too many thieves in our the country, and in Washington.

    Same goes if the GOP chooses Romney or Santorum. There’s only one candidate in the GOP primaries who isn’t a “blatant big government progressive”.

    Yes-you are correct.  I for one will vote for the person, whom ever becomes the Republican nominee.  In my opinion, Gingrich should be the one to face the guy from DC.  My question is, will he [BHO] be allowed to use a teleprompter?  An ear piece?   If not, he’s toast.  I won’t judge Mr. Gingrichs’ moral character-that’s up to our Lord.

    1.  I, along with millions of other Americans believe that it is highly offensive to label newt as a Progressive/Democrat.  newt is obviously a Conservative/Republican through and through.  Like beck, newt was fired from his most powerful position because he lacked character.  glenn was simply fired.  newt, on the other hand, received the largest Congressional fines in history, then was fired.  newt swims in the same scum filled gutter with simple minded ST, glenn and rush.
    2.  Doesn’t this surge point out an obvious flaw in the Republican Party.  They do not have quality leaders.  If I were running the RNC or the super pacs I would cut off the Presidential funding and focus on Congressional or State elections because they are in serious danger of losing hundreds of seats.
    3.  How weak is the Republican party?  Stephen Colbert, a comedian/host is making a mockery of the Republican Primaries and the Presidential candidates.  He is polling well, but can’t even be voted for.  To add insult to injury, Cain has joined Colbert in this circus act.  Think about it…Herman Cain (who is the chosen spokesperson for the Tea Party State of the Union response and former glenn favorite) is now mocking the Conservatives by running around with Colbert in SC. 
    Well done Consevatives.

  • SoThere

    For today, and every day you post here, I will post your lies on every comment you make on this site….

    Why don’t you just go away you liar and Phony Soldier. Everyone would understand that move on your part. Your hate and ignorance is not winning any converts here. You’re the butt of jokes and ridicule.

    Please see a professional about your fixation on little children strtlk/mtclayboy.

    You’re a lying sack of crap. You denied serving on a submarine, and knowing what SSBN was. I posted your words verbatim.

    You’re a Wikipedia sailor and a lying puke.

    Here’s your “one on one” you little puke of a man.

    1. As mtclayboy you claimed that you served on a BOOMER. As strtlk you claimed not to know what a Boomer or a SSBN was “I don’t care” were your exact words. You also stated that you didn’t know where Bangor, Wa. was which is where Boomers (submarines) are fitted for duty.
    Any real Submariner would know that. You didn’t!

    2. You then changed your story and claimed that you were on a BOOMER. You lied.

    3. As mtclayboy you claimed that you had damaged your ears while serving on a Submarine. As strtlk, you claimed that you damaged your ears while serving on a submarine.

    4. As mtclayboy you claimed that you joined the Navy and served for five years on a submarine but according to the timeline you gave that was proven to be a lie. You lied.

    5. As mtclayboy you said that you were a Fireman. As strtlk, you claimed you were a Fireman.

    6. As mtclayboy and as strtlk, you posted the same bigotry and hate against Glenn Beck almost word for word even using the same spelling and grammatical errors and focusing on the children. I’ve posted many of them here already.

    Are you catching on everyone? He’s a liar plain and simple and nothing he claims can be believed.

    Folks, I have the posts of these two Phonies and have posted just a couple to prove he is a liar and just makes up stories about his Military Service. His latest story is right out of Wikipedia. His classified VMS crap is also right out of Wikipedia and US NAVY.mil. I’m a member there.

    He wants to take me on “one on one” when he’s already proven in his own words that he’s a liar and a fake.

    Flag the idiot so he can come back as another loser like his other fake ID “Vinny” where hes a 10 year Army Sargent on another classified secret mission that he can’t talk about.

    There you go loser, “one on one” only I backed up my posts with facts and your own words as proof. Why don’t you have the balls to admit to your lies, tuck your head up your A$$, take your bigotry and hate and Phony Soldier ID and leave us honest people alone?

    Once again, Here you are caught in your lies. These are your words verbatim:

    strtlk said: on Hollywood elites want to be taxed more 09/24/11 07:51 PM

    “1. No idea where Bangor, WA is. I thought Bangor was in Maine!
    2. What the heck is a “Boomer” or SSBN? You know what…I don’t care!
    3. Reminding people that glenn was a dead beat dad is a factual statement about him, not his innocent children. Nice try though slime ball.
    3. Either talk about something relevant and stop this, you are jason bourne crap!”

    Caught in your lies strtlk.

    Thanks for proving me correct.

    Folks, strtlk/mtclayboy has been caught in his lies, He’s a lying sack of crap.

    He doesn’t flip flop like Romney…
    He has ALWAYS been pro life unlike Romney…..
    He has a firm and strong understanding of foreign affairs unlike Ron Paul.
    SANTORUM LIVES HIS PRINCIPLES!  He’s not perfect. Made a ocuple of mistakes, but for the most part, he’s the ONE!

    SANTORUM IS PRINCIPLED!  He’s fought these fights a long time ago, and not just said it–he FOUGHT for the right things!

    Has truth lost all meaning? This rant has no actual fact. For some one to admit they like some of the policies of past presidents does not make that a complete acceptance of that presidents policies. I really like many past presidents, but are not in complete support of what they have done. Andrew Jackson is a great example. His position on the federal reserve is awesome, his treatment of the Indians horrific. Glenn does not like that Newt shares some ideas from his list of unfavorable presidenets. Yet I can find many faults with Glenn’s favorites. Progressivism is a hundred years in the making and it may take a hundred more to undo. It’s a mindset, not a president, and is caused by lack of personal responsibility. All we can hope from a president is a repeal of Obama care and a good deal of cut backs. What’s in Newt’s past that actually says he’s not for this? Was it when he actually worked to cut taxes, regulations and entitlements? Or was it that balanced budget thing that bothers you so much?

    I have great respect for Santorum and agree with you 100% on his steadfastness and values. However, I have strong doubts that he can win the General Election against Obama. I think Newt can crush Obama in the debates and win significant voter approval in November. I believe Newt can crush Obama with Santorum as his VP. To satisfy some on the fringe, I also believe that Ron Paul deserves some respect and a seat at the table to help America fix its many fiscal problems. Every election cycle we waste waiting for the perfect Messiah or Mr. Goodbar, for you non-believers, we allow the liberals to do more damage. Newt can win!

    Glenn, Newt may win South Carolina, but the chances of him winning the Republican nomination is very slim.  85% of women are disgusted with him. On the off chance that the world does start to implode & he actually did win the nomination – we have 4 more years of BHO.

    I would not be so fearful of Ron Paul if someone got him brain surgery about Iran.  He has a lot of good ideas/thoughts but letting Iran go nuclear is insane.  Ahmadinejad has told us what he wants to do;l destroy Israel and America, Little Satan and Big Satan.  Islam insists on a world caliphate and in such a scenario, all must convert to Islam or die.  Some would die without even the option of conversion.  How can any thinking person look seriously into the history and practice of Islam and not see the danger?  Who are Iran’s friends?  Our ol’ friends, Russia, North Korea, China…..all helping them go nuclear.  India and Pakstan already have the bomb, and they got it without the US even knowing they were working on it!  Get real.  The world is on the edge of a complete economic collapse, a New World Order, an Islamic Caliphate and a nuclear Mid-East.  Paul’s isolationism would have us sitting around the back yard roasting hot dogs on the embers of what’s left of America.

Ron Paul is no isolationist, in fact, you obviously have no clue what the term means.

    I strongly believe that Newt can and will win the General election. I have great faith and support for Santorum, but do not think he can stand up against Obama. I would like to see Newt and Santorum as VP on the ticket in November. I also think that Ron Paul has a number of sound points regarding fiscal policy that should be given due regard. Every election cycle we wait for a messiah or Mr. Goodbar, for you not believers, we allow the liberals to maintain control and do more damage. Our willingness to shoot ourselves in the foot because of single-minded issues of any ideology are doing us more harm than good. “Defeating Obama” is the only single issue we should focus on right now.

    I’m an Independent voter; don’t belong to any political groups or any political party.
    It is quite distressing to listen to all of you who will vote for Newt.  Are you all
    progressives who have infiltrated a conservative site to let the majority of Glen’s
    commentators think they are wrong?  Isn’t that what the media are doing?  Newt
    is a plant for the progessive democrats.
    Why not believe that there are 3 good men left who can better govern America
    than Newt.  If you vote in this election by fear, fear is what you will have if
    Newt is elected.  Haven’t any of you noticed that Newt never says I?  He always
    says WE!  I do not believe that he is talking about his wife in the WE comment.
    Who is behind him?
    Please, you people out there who are voting for Newt,  you must do research
    on Newt and his years in the House of Representatives as Speaker.  You can
    obtain this by going into the US Congress archives or on C-Spans archives.
    He is a progressive/social Republican.  Do some homework on this. 
    If you are motivated by fear you will become fearful!

    If you feel the correct foreign policy for the U.S. is to spread our influence all over the world, at the expense of the taxpayer, why don’t you donate your money and your time to “defending america”? Our foreign policy is a disaster, and the only one that can clean the mess up is Dr. Paul. Whether you agree with me or not, there are several other issues that are just as, if not more important, than foreign policy. Such as overreaching regulations on business and citizens, the feds disasterous monetary policy, our immigration policy (beheadings and all), government spending overseas and domestic, interference in our private lives and much much more. Think about how a neocon or a progressive such as newt will deal with these issues. Probably a lot of the same ol’ b.s. we’ve been getting.

The one most likely to have turned this country around, was disqualified by the media, for taking too long to remember the third thing he had said he would do if he became president. Shame on the nit-picking media. They may have just used the strongest tool that could possibly be used to finish destroying our country. The same people responsible for putting Obama in the Whitehouse, are going to be putting another one in worse than him.”Judge not a man based on his inability to polish his speach, but rather speaks the truth on his past good deeds, and his present unbelievable, success.” How can you support Israel and not support Rick Perry? I support Glenn Beck and Rick Perry. God bless you both

    Waiting…waiting. Wait no longer. You really should get out more. Do you listen to the debates? I heard Ron Paul say it with my own ears. I was thinking good things about him until I heard that-the first time and several times since in re-runs etc. Being blind to the reality of our candidates is just as dangerous as being blind to Obama. I watch a lot of news coverage, read a lot of good stuff, and try not to let my personal feelings push me down a path I don’t think is right, just because I like the guy leading. I’ve been around a long time, and my mind is in great shape, tho’ the ol’ bod is flagging. If you think Paul is the best we have, you will be disappointed but it’s God’s mercy. Anyone that stands by and lets Iran go nuclear with nothing more than Obama’s “pretty please” is asking for it. I want a better world for my grandkids but we will be fortunate if there is anything left, let alone the free republic I grew up in.

    God Bless You!

    ezekial – what, you’re going to let a 1-minute sound-byte from what Ron Paul said about a few lines from a news magazine from 20+ years ago influence your decision?  So all the votes Paul has made which champion the Constitution mean nothing? 

    I’m sure every one of us has said or done something from 20+ years ago which we may not be too proud of, but that does NOT reflect who we are now as a person. 

    Even if Ron Paul WAS directly involved in the articles, and even if he DID know what was being printed, that was 20+ years ago, and he clearly does NOT hold those views now, nor does his actions in Congress show that he feels that way (just look at his voting record)!!

    He asked for foregiveness and I will forgive, but surely doesnt mean I will vote for him cause he asked for forgiveness. If the Lord says give him a shot. I won’t argue with that.  I just hope your decision to vote for him is based on the tug in your heart and not that you think its the right thing to do.

    Is it just possible that Glenn turns his nose up at Newt because he is endorsing Romney? Seems plausible since both are Mormons.

  • American Freedom Enterprises

    ummm, actually, he NEVER said that – he DID say that he felt Iran was NOT a direct threat to the US… also, he advocates that IF they develop nuclear weapons and then tries to use them for evil purposes, then we can have Congress declare war.  He also stated that Iran can’t even get electricity to all it’s people (implying that they don’t have the capacity to develop full-scale nuke weapons) – which may or may not be true.

    Besides, other countries have them (China, N. Korea, Pakistan, India, etc), and we’ve SOMEHOW come to terms w/ that & have been able to live w/ that…

    the point is that we, as a country, cannot continue going around the world & playing judge, jury, & executioner – regardless of your moral belief on that, just the financial cost to the US taxpayer alone is dictating that our country can no longer afford to do ti!!

    (P.S.  You still did NOT post the quote where he said he’d sit idly by & allow Iran to develop & use nuke weapons)!!!

    I like Newt. I would not want Newt Gingrich to marry my daughter or Pastor my church; BUT I think he would make an excellent aggressive challenger that can actually win against Obama. After winning, he has enough insider understanding to know how to dig out the socialists programs that have been quietly passed under the current administration. We don’t need a wimp, like Romney, he is so easily compared to Obama that the left want him to run because they know if their first choice, (Obama) loses, they have Obama lite (Romney) to quietly work behind the scenes, to hold the fort till next time. Santorum is great, but he would not even make it through the first debate. He’s just not got the burn or the quick throw back under fire. Ron Paul is not a leader. In his looooong tenure in Congress, he has put forth many many pieces of legislation NONE of which have passed. This does not show leadership. He is a good old fashioned country Dr. Period.

    Paul says he’s conservative but he thinks Israel should return their land to the Palestenians; that’s about as progressive liberal as you can get. He says he’s conservative but he thinks pot should be made legal; how much more liberal do you want? He is not a conservative, he’s a showman, a rabble rowser. He’s run three times now, 1988, 2008 and 2012 and every time, he rides barely above the low end of the scale and never rises any further because of his wild off the edge isolationist libraterian views. He loves the attention.

  • http://www.facebook.com/hannahlehigh Sharon Lamont

    If Ron Paul gets the presidency, America will be dead. Ron Paul hates Israel so what do you think will happen. Iran will blast Israel off the face of the earth and then they will blast America. People just aren’t thinking straight in this thing. Maybe Ron Paul says things some of you like for America but, when he says Iran should be aloud to have a nuke, don’t you see where that will lead? Wake up and realize what you are doing for the country by voting for this guy. He thinks like he’s living in the 60s. I don’t think his brain has evolved to the year 2012 and it never will. Israel is our friend so why are you turning your backs on them?

    Memo to Glenn Beck
    I’ve been a fan of yours & agree with you most of the time, but I don’t understand your problem with Gingrich, while you can support Mitt, Romney Care, Romney? 
    Mitt Romney who’s favorite shoes are probably flip flops?
    Mitt Romney who knows how to make money, but has trouble explaining to liberals how free enterprise works?
    Mitt Romney who stutters & stammers as though he had a speech impediment & especially when he speaks about his taxes?
    Mitt Romney who looks like he’s been trained to wear a plastic smile while debating, instead of just being real?
    Mitt Romney has Planned Parenthood in his Romney Care, but no conservative counterpart & no safeguard against tax funded abortions?
    If you’re so keen on conservatives & you believe Newt is a progressive, why wouldn’t you support Santorum, rather than the flip flopping, Romney Care Romney?

    You call it a dangerous foreign policy when he believes we should have a strong military who is equipped to guard and protect our American soil?  You have been listening to the media too much because they are completely wrong about his stand on foreign policy.  He believes we should go back to the way we used to deal with other countries….peace summits, negotiations, etc., but this invasion policy is getting us nowhere.  We’re going into practically every Middle Eastern country and we think we have a right to take down their leaders and decide how their countries should be run.  Things are going really well in Iraq since we took over there, right?  Wrong… It’s a disaster.

    By no means am I a foreign policy expert, but with the experience
    of five deployments I will tell you that this way of thinking will only get
    people killed and will solve nothing. As Americans we are raised up with one
    main question… Why. We ask why about everything…. Go clean your room… Why? Why
    do I need to study math? Why do I need to eat my vegetables? From a young age
    we are raised that this is ok. I would say it is. This question could be argued
    as to why our great society has grown from a British colony to a free republic.
    So my rhetorical question to you is why do you think that dictating to another
    contry what they can and can’t do is right? Where is your proof that Iran is
    going to nuke us? You obviously have no defense experience. The United States
    has multiple measures to counter a nuclear launch. The threat of a single
    aircraft carrier has literally stopped unrest in regions in the past. Yet
    people continue to think that we need thousands of troops, their families and
    civilian personnel stationed overseas in countries like Germany and Japan
    securing those countries sovereignty while spreading our military so thin as to
    threaten the protection of our own sovereignty. People call Ron Paul an
    isolationist, this makes no since to me. Since when does diplomatic channels
    become Isolationism? I would argue that the idea that war is the answer mentality
    is isolationism. When I was in Islamabad Pakistan, I would say that we(the
    U.S.) was about 50/50, 50% liked America and 50% hated us. By conducting strategic
    strikes on their soil we have diminished the amount of people there that are
    pro U.S. By threatening and using similar type of tactics with Iran we are in
    essence doing the same thing that we did to Pakistan, losing a war for the
    hearts and minds of a country. The best thing that we could do to get rid of
    that crazy in Iran is to support the people in a revolution against their tyrannical
    government. As far as nuclear detonation is concerned, there is more of a
    threat from missing nukes in Russia. So why are we so obsessed with Iran. If
    you are going to support a war with Iran, than you should go and enlist at your
    local recruiter or encourage your children to enlist in a combat unit, because
    we will be stretched so thin that we will not be able to cover all the fields
    of battle and maintain our sovereignty. By the way I still do serve my country
    and I am NOT a liberal, just a concerned American.

    It’s not your fault for believing that, Glenn has completely dropped the ball.  Gingrich is less progressive that Romney and Santorum.  That’s why I’m so pissed with Glenn.  If you look at records and voting histories it is blatantly obvious Gingrich is even less progressive than Ron Paul.

    Glenn has failed us, he is failing to expose romney and santorum for what they really are, BGP’s.  The truly DESPICABLE thing is he calls gingrich out on his progressive views and uses examples that apply to Romney.  NEED PROOF??

    Beck constantly says Gingrich is a BGP because he supported an individual mandate in 90′s yet he fails to mention ROMNEY INSTITUTED AN INDIVIDUAL MANDATE IN MASS.

    True conservatives are almost extinct. When people who identify themselves as conservatives are presented with a true conservative, a no drama kind of person, they are lukewarm over him. Perhaps because there’s no craziness, people can’t feel the connection. We’ve grown to love the, sometimes manufactured, “reality” shows. People want a reflection of their won lives, thus the fascination with Newt. Have you noticed Mitt is steering clear from the entire thing. The last thing in the world he wants to do is engage anything whatsoever that has to do with marriage and open relationships! But, you know, he might beat Newt in the polls if he did. People would just eat it up.

    I find it interesting that when Herman Cain a true conservative, was hit with the scandalous accusations, the progressives succeeded in destroying Herman’s campaign, so he had to crumble and back down.  Now the same is happening with Newt…  But……how does Newt handle all the accusations?  With outward defiance and this attitude has developed an approving following.  And among them are the American people who are desperate for a savior.  Could it be that there is more to this than we can see on the surface.  Perhaps, it is true that the progressives in power see the weakness in Obama and realize that he can no longer be the leader as originally designed.  So the progressives in their patient wisdom are not going to crush Newt like they did Cain, because in order to continue with the progressive agenda, they need a NEW leader……Newt,  whom they deem the leader of the “new world order”  Wow…. I find this revelation extremely frightening.

    You mean Rick Santorum, the guy that would have felons vote for the liberal of their choice & who voted for the Prescription Medicare & several debt ceiling increases?

    Newt has his problems & Rick seems like a great guy, but he often looks like he’s going to break out crying, when the going gets rough & maybe we need a brawler like Gingrich to duke it out with that Chicago crowd.

    Then who do you suggest we vote for Glenn?  Romney is totally progressive – has the same Wall Street bankers backing him as backed Obama in 2008.  He bankrupted the state of MA and made gay marriage legal – and no, it wasn’t the Supreme Court of MA who did that.  Read their decision people and you will know it was Romney.  Paul scares me with his foreign policy and his stand on Israel.   If we are only going to fight on our shores, which side of the US should we allow that to start on.   Isn’t it better to fight the wars on someone else’s shore?   I am in a complete connundrum as to who to vote for – this has never happened to me before.   I don’t believe Santorum has the charisma to win against Obama.  Sad but true, that is what draws some voters!!    And Obama must be stopped!!!!

Please.  Same with Palin.  How she could ever support Newt on any level is beyond corrupt.  Her actions speak volumes. Same goes with the evangelicals.  Unbelievable- they shouldn’t want to touch Newt with all his personal baggage.  We are truly witnessing the end of morals.  Should this man get the nomination, the conservative party will never be taken seriously again.  Their new slogan should be “Do as I say, not as I do”.

    We are all being played.  I am to the point of not trusting anyone, or votes for that matter.  Good example is IOWA- what the heck?  Eight precincts missing and no clear winner.  I have a feeling that is just an appetizer to the general election results.

    Sure, let’s elect the liberal from Massachusetts who’s flipped more times than a circus clown. If you think your Boy Mitt can beat Obama you better think again. Just remember this Glenn, Romney’s Nomination equals Obama’s inauguration. Newt is our only chance of beating the “long Legged Mac Daddy”!!

    How is it that Mr. Beck, who likes the leadership and integrity of George Washington and the Founding Fathers, continues to COVER UP Obama’s illegal presidency??!!!  Well, Mr. Beck, “It’s on your head!”

    So what you are saying is that anyone is better than Obama, except Romney, because the south doesn’t like Romney?  Religious bigotry at it’s finest.

    Paul is the only candidate that votes with the
    constitution. The other three and Obama would declare war on Iran… Last time I
    checked a declaration war is declared by congress not the President… How is
    voting for Paul a throwing away your vote? Stop allowing the media and talk
    show host decide who your President will be. Research the candidates and make a
    decision don’t allow the media to research it for you that is all miss information
    about who the flavor of the week is. By saying someone is throwing their vote
    away, you are putting yourself in with the likes of Keith Olbermann and Chris Mathews.
    Last time I checked this was still a free country where we the people had the
    right to make our own decisions.

    I am appalled at what I see happening in our politics.  Truth seems to have gone by the wayside, to the point that few can understand it when it is spoken.  What many are calling “dangerous, or idiocy” is simply truth and courage to stand for our Constitution.  I am afraid many Americans are going to vote just for who they think may beat Obama, even if it means compromising our principles.  We are basically selling our Heritage for a bowl of pottage.  Wake up America!  There is more at stake than just an election.  Where is your conscience?

    I used to be anti-Newt, but after hearing him take on that slimy little race-baiting Juan Williams and put him in his place in the last debate, and THEN take on John King and the whole Mainstream Media in THIS debate and call those presstitutes out on how they continually launch personal attacks on every GOP candidate WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY COVERING UP OR NEVER COMMENTING ON ANY OF OBAMA’S ACTIONS AND POLICIES TO TURN THE USA INTO A SOCIALIST WELFARE STATE, I said to myself, “This little Newt guy is the only GOP candidate I’ve seen with the BALLS, the KNOWLEDGE, and the KILLER INSTINCT enough to take on the OBAMA/SOROS PROPAGANDA MACHINE and KICK THEIR ASS!  Romney is just another Milquetoast McCain as far as I’m concerned.(Sorry, Glenn to criticize your Mormon buddy, whom I know you want to win, but dammit, we need a MAN not a boy, to take on this EVIL MACHINE that is bent on destroying us all!)
    This country simply cannot survive 4 more years of Obama!!!  We need an ATTACK DOG to defeat him and his George-Soros-funded BILLION DOLLAR campaign fund.  If Newt is a Progressive he’s nowhere near as bad as Obama, who demeans and weakens the USA in every way he can, in order to promote the Granddaddy of All Progressives, GEORGE SOROS’ version of ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.  I just don’t see Gingrich KISSING ASS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD like Obama does!!!  I don’t see Newt FIGHTING TO KEEP OUR BORDERS OPEN or to KEEP GIVING FREEBIES (up to $50,000/year in entitlements) TO ILLEGAL ALIENS OR PARASITES ON WELFARE, PAID FOR BY WE THE MIDDLE CLASS TO BUY VOTES FOR THE DEMS LIKE OBAMA DOES!!   YES, Obama IS a Progressive!  But Gingrich?  COME ON, GLENN!!

    I appreciate your reply. So many just call others names who don’t agree; you gave good, sound reasons for your opinions. That I respect. It’s hard to put a whole concept and the reasons in a short paragraph. I agree, dipomacy is good, and when possible, is the best means of settling differences. No, we can’t be the world’s police. I’ve said that myself. But the concern about Iran having the bomb is not the same as the other nations having the bomb. They are fuled by crazy people. Mutually assured destruction kept Russia and the USA from trading bombs, and a lot of other factors weigh in on the whole thing. But Iran is different. When it was pointed out to Rafnanjani that if Iran sent a nuke on Tel Aviv, Israel would deploy the amson option. They would send all they bombs they could into Iran, enough to near destroy the whole place. The typical radical Muslim answer was good; all Muslims who die in Jihad go to Paradise and meet their 72 virgins! You don’t think that’s nuts? Ahmadinejad is nuts, but he’s ruled by the fanatical Mullahs of Iran. The Shia Muslims of Iran are Twelvers. They believe the12th Imam is soon to come. He is the Mahdi of Islam. When Muhammad died, he left no heir, and two men vied for the spot. One was his son-in-law Ali, the other a Caliph from the area by Medina. Some chose sides, and others didn’t care but like all matters of Islam, it was a bloody battle. One Imam after another was killed, and when it reached the point where the next in line was a very young boy, to keep him alive, his family hid him. The legend says they hid him in a well, and later Allah took him to a secret cave to grow up. He’s been hiding there since. We’re talking about 1,400 years. The Twelvers believe he wants to come now but he cannot come until the world is filled with the carnage of war that he will step into and win for Islam. Then Jesus, whom they call Isa will come back, and admit he lied about being God, He wasn’t crucified, and He really does hate the Jews. He will kill Jews to prove it, and serve Mahdi as they set up the World Caliphate. Mahdi will rule for 7 years. Sunni Muslims do not believe this. They have an end time scenario but it’s not the same as the Shia’s. I’m no foreign policy expert but I do know history. Hitler made his plans known in his book, and by the direction his rise to power traveled. Back then, Iran was stilled called Persia. They bonded with Hitler because of the Jews; it was Hitler who suggested they change their name to Iran. It means Aryan. Muslims have been fighting each other for centuries, and don’t mind killing their own people, for the radical things they believe. Ahmadinejad insists the Holocaust didn’t happen, but that it will when he destroys Israel. I admire your service to our country, and am confident from you post that you love the country and served well. The fact of the matter is that the media and our government does not tell us the truth about the Middle East. Our whole country is ruled by politics anymore. Few of them truly have a burden for the nation of the people. Why else would they saddle the future with 16 trillion in debt? Freedoms are eroding. Society is getting trashy, and our culture ridicules what we used to honor. I love America, too. I get teary eyes at the national anthem and Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory. I have studied our history and much of the rest of the world’s. “People like me” are not a threat; we are the watchmen on the walls. Look at the inroads Islam has made in America. We have hundreds of Mosques, which is OK but go find a Muslim nation where they will let Christians build a church, or Jews a Synagoge. Muslims in Somalia, Indonesia, Pakistan, India, and Iran are killing Christians, burning the churches. In Saudi you would be arrested if you had a Bible, and killed if you didn’t denounce the faith. If you were even let in the country. Shaira Law is what they want. The so-called Arab Spring was an organized uprising of radical Islam. They are working toward a world wide Caliphate. Now, the Muslim Brotherhood is taking power in Egypt, and they are talking of dropping the treaty with Israel. Assad killed 4,000 of his own people to stay in power. You know what the Butcher of Baghdad was like. The Muslims are slowly taking huge ground in Europe. They believe that land once held by Islam is theirs forever, and if lost MUST be taken back by the sword by order of Allah. That’s why they hate the Jews in Israel so much. Under the Ottoman Turks Islam had Palestine but after the WWI they lost it and the conference divided it into the nations of today. The Treaty was ratified in 1923, and if Israel doesn’t exist, neither do the other nations formed by that same treaty in Yalta. The story about Jerusalem being the 3rd holy place of Islam is a sham. Mecca and Medina were their holy places. To stake a claim, they came up with the story that Muhammad made his midnight ride on Barak, his white horse, riding from Mecca to the Mosque of Al Aksa on Mt. Moriah, and then to heaven. The Mosque of Omar, on the mount today was not a mosque. A rich Arab built it in the 700′s for a friend who was a Jew. He saw his friend weeping at the foot of the mountain, and when he asked why he wept, the Jew told him of the Jews’ sorrow over the loss of their Temple in 70 AD by Rome. So the Arab built him a house of prayer. In modern times, no one told more lies than Arafat; he didn’t even know the Mosque of Omar didn’t have a pointer in it, toward Mecca. His cousin pointed it out. ALL mosques are built with the pointer toward Mecca, so he quickly had one put in! The Arabs think they have a foot hold in Jerusalem with their claims about the Mountain. It’s all based on a lie. These people are not rational. If Iran gets the bomb, they WILL bomb Tel Aviv, and that is the population center of Israel. 1.5 million of their people. When they had Palestine, they didn’t want it or value you. It was a wilderness. But the Jews have made it bloom as a rose, and found it’s wealth, so now everyone wants it. That tiny nation is all the Jews have but Islam won’t be satisfied until all the Jews are dead. It’s NOT about the land; it’s the hatred taught in the Qur’an. Check into the schools of Islam. Hate and silly lies are taught the kids from 1st grade on. You can call me anything you want to. I know what I know. And, I know Bible Prophecy. So far, it has a 100% record of fullfilment, so I expect the rest will come to pass right on schedule. Already the nations are lined up for the One World of Antichrist and the War of Gog-Magog. Ez. 38-39. God bless America.

    Vote Santorum, true conservative , with detailed actionable plans , person of integrity and honesty ; person you can trust. When he got the time to voice his opinions, as in thursday debate he clearly showed his passion and ability to debate, he can win over Obama
    look at how far he has gone with so little money, just think if he had the money for campaigning he could surely win over Obama

    Things sure do get scrambled. I know what I heard Ron Paul say, and yes, he did also say Iran was not a threat. That’s nuts. They are the biggest threat the world faces aside from our debts and such. I did NOT say anything about him sitting idly by; you got that from some other post, or interpreted something to mean that. I have also watched Ron Paul in interviews, and listened to him, hoping that he would come around a bit about things. He is right about the fact that we have meddled too often in affairs that were none of our business. Oddly enough the whole world has their hands out for money from the USA but object if we try to protect our investments. I agree with Paul about a lot of what he says, and not just on domestic issues. But with Iran, he is off the charts, and you can’t convice me otherwise. I have studied too much, and know too much about Islam and the whole business. Iran is run by crazy people. They have openly threatened repeatedly to destroy Israel. Other radical Islamic leaders have done the same. They teach their kids to hate from infancy on. Schools teach horrible stuff about the Jews. I once watched an interview of a Muslim mother who praised Allah that she had 9 sons to give him in Jihad! Yes; 4 of them already died in suicide missions, and she pledged the other 5 and wished she had more sons to give Allah. Don’t tell me that is sane! I have taken the time and spent the money to hear former Muslims speak, as they warn us about Jihad. Walid Shoebat for example. I bought his books and DVD programs. I had dozens of other DVD documentaries about the topic. I have listened to interviews with Christians men who were Islamic. They fled their countries to avoid an honor killing. Son of Hamas is a book written by a young man who is now Christian, living in America, who grew up in Hamas in the Gaza, the son of a leader in Hamas. He was even in prison by Israel for his activities. If you get your news from the media, you won’t know the truth. You have to go out of your way. I have a large library, and a number of books written by godly men who tell the truth about Islam. Do you remember Zhudi, the moderate Muslim often seen on Tox? Well, he is the real deal, and has made documentaries himself, trying to get the word out that radical Islam is not true Islam. He laments that moderate Muslims don’t object to the violence and hatred, but he also explains why they don’t. It’s commanded in the Qur’an! To please Allah, they must engage in Jihad. They could be kept out of Paradise if they don’t. So get real about Iran, and then tell me that Ron Paul should be our president when he doesn’t have a clue what that bunch is up to!!!! Iran says it will, and it will drop a bomb on Tel Aviv. That kills a 1/4 of the people in all of Israel! If they do, Israel has promised the Sampson option. They will trigger all the weapons they have poised for Iran the second they detect an incoming nuke; it will mutually destroy Iran but Ahmadinejad and his crazy Mullahs don’t care! They will be underground and “safe” and all the millions of Iranians who would be killed have an instant, one-way ticket to Paradise! All who die in Jihad go to Paradise, no matter how evil they were. Uh huh. And if you want a quote, look of Rafnanjani, who was in power before Ahmadinejad, because he said so in a speech and in diplomatic talks. And the nut they have now is crazier than he was. Ahmadinejad believes he is the one who must usher in the Mahdi, a messiah type of Islam. But he cannot come until the world is in caos and war has made a carnage of the world. He wants to start that war, to bring the Mahdi. It gets even worse, so before you yawn at me, do the homework and study and research I’ve done. Then we can talk.

    God Bless You!

    So who is the Conservative Candidate?? From what I can tell Santoram possibly is.
     He says he is a full fledge conservative without baggage
    Gov. Romney is solid, but progressive and can help make money, Newt and Ron Paul is also progressive. Newt has a powerful personality, Ron Paul is drawing the young, because they feel he will not send them to war.
    They forget the Congress and Senate and the World Security will decide if they will go.
     Not the President.
     So after reading your concerns, I wonder who is the one to lead this nation during very dangerous and turmoil times
    God help us to be wise and seek His guidance and make the right choice.

    I’m a Libertarian voting for Romney. I don’t think America is quite ready for Libertarianism but we are beginning to understand the ideas. Gingrich is a bombastic, loud, vicious man. He knows politics but he is not honest. He has no real philosophy nor any real ideology. He is a politician.He is not a man of integrity. It is scary that people are willing to give him standing ovations. It is almost as mindless as those who voted and hooted and hollerd for Obama 3 years ago. Romney is circumspect, careful, a true believer in free enterprise  who has lived it with his own life, a man that knows we can not foist ideas  on people in one big blowout. I trust him more. thank you Glenn for reminding us of why we went to Washington. It was not for Gingrich. PLEASE!  Libertarian in California

    I see that you are a historian now and I do appreciate that. I am one too. I think the problem that people have right now is who is the best for the job. The thing that I will tell you without delving to deep into it is that the military, both ours and our allies have plans, for just about anything. The military has some very sophisticated equipment and some very motivated personnel. I sleep well at night, and so should every other American. What this particular conversation boils down to is foreign policy. For me personally I do not consider Romney, Santorum or Newt as good for this country. All three have publically said that they would go to war with Iran, now the problem with that is it is not the Presidents function to declare war. It needs to go through Congress. If we have a President running around declaring war on countries than we inherit a dictator over night. If you have a President that will wipe his rear with our Constitution than you will not be in a free nation any longer. I think that is at the core of this topic. I do not stand opposed to War (obviously). I do however stand for the constitution that I swore to support and defend. What do we gain from declaring war with Iran if we lose our freedom in the mean time, not to mention loosing the resources and man power to defend our nation due to spreading our forces to thin. You should research about countries spreading their forces to thin…. They all either lost part of their country or territories (England included, ie America) or they collapsed. I think that this process needs to start with the people of Iran. There are people in that country that do not agree or want that crazy as their leader; this is how you fight that type of war. Conventional Military action will get us nowhere with Iran it needs to start with their people. If what you say is true, than a war with Iran would be exactly what that they want. As far as Ron Paul goes, I would follow his orders in to war, not because I worship him (as the media would have you think) but because I know his orders would be lawful and deliberate and from military doctrine and strategy(as opposed to previous presidents). It does us no good to have our service members (me included) die because of indecision and stupidity. I think anyone would agree, there is a right way to do something, and a wrong way. I am in a combat unit, and the majority of troops I know support or agree with Paul’s type of tactics.

    Santorum voted for Medicare prescription.

    Romney did Romney Care.

    Newt sat down with Pelosi.

    Ron Paul thinks a nuclear Iran is no big deal.

    In other words, no perfect candidate & Ronald Reagan has left the building.

    Whatever is said about Newt, a lot of welfare reform & other good
    things happened when he was House Speaker, in spite of the negative &
    with Chicago Marxist in the White House, maybe we need a fighter
    like Gingrich, who says he’s found God.

    Maybe we should believe him, forgive him & go with a guy who got results when he was House Speaker, even with a Pres like Clinton.
    Compared to what Newt did for the good, aside from the negative, as House Speaker, what have the other candidates accomplished with their years in politics?

    Just asking.

    Good catch.  It is sick that Beck’s followers are not concerned about Beck’s hypocrisy in not being fair and objective and at least saying that Romney is hideous for being for the same things.

    The reason that Beck does not do this and only goes over the top on Newt is out of rage and revenge.  Also, if he went into Romney, it would be so easy to see how Romney is by far worse. 

    However, I believe it is possible that once Romney gets the nomination, Beck will go into Romney and expose him a bit so that Obama will win.

  • jen

    If you are so concerned about progressive infiltrators, then you would balk at the thought of Romney.  Romney has that infiltrator look and talk all over him.  Hence, everyone in media readily admits he has an authenticity problem.  On the other hand, Newt is an open book.  He is not afraid to take on tough interviews and questions and answer them without evading the question as Romney.

    What is Mitt hiding in dodging questions?  Perhaps the fact that he is a hard-core liberal.

    Santorum, 1st choice and the Newt, second.  I can’t accept either Romney or Paul. For people of prayer this is a REAL test of Faith and hearing God speak. It is a shame that Republicans, Conservatives and Independents are so divided. Even people of faith are divided and supporting people that are suspect. I pray God that you give us clarity regarding this election and help us realize this could be something we are not yet capable of seeing with your eyes, YET!

    I agree with Glenn, Gingrich will lose against Obama.  The demoncrats will destroy him and the GOP if Gingrich is the nominee, which he won’t be. It would all be about Newt, and not about what this election is about — $Money$!  Romney is the only ‘electable’ choice against Obama. Presidential Elections are decided by Independents.  in 2008 Independents voted Obama, this time they’re looking for someone else.  This is why Romney is the best choice for the GOP.  Both Gingrich and Santorum are too extreme for Independents and disgruntled Dems to support.  GOP primary voters have vote for the one with the most electability.  It’s not about who’s the most conservative, it’s about who’s the most electable.  Romney is moderate on some issues, and this is a good thing.

    I appreciate your thoughtful post, and have one comment I feel inspired to share. Ha. I’m aware that all countries have plans for various possibilities that may befall then, and war plans for hostile events, etc. That’s why Israel has the Samson Option in place. That’s why countries engage in war games, and run drills to be prepared. How’s that working so far? We had plans for planes in forbidden air space on 9/11 but do you know that not one plane got up until it was all over? Where was NORAD and all that-Control knew the highjacked planes were not supposed to be where they were. They should have been shot out of the sky. Harsh; yes, but reality. Our borders are wide open. Terrorists are coming in on a regular basis, and don’t think they come with just a change of undies. How well do we respond to that? Our own government bought over 2,000 guns, and lost track of them, so now the drug cartels have most of them, and one of those guns killed a border guard. Speaking of keeping us safe; Obama gave the Russians our best missile defense in Europe and got nothing for it, not even a bottle of Vodka, as far as we know. Maybe he got a tin of cavier. He up and pulled all the troops out of Iraq, in spite of concerns by men on the ground, and the next day, terrorists started killing people. Iran was standing there waiting for the door to slam shut so they could move in. Obama butted in on Libya with no congressional support, but ignored all the rest of the Middle East. Assad in Syria was the worst; he killed 4,000 of his own people. Ahmadinejad does that all the time. the Muslim Brotherhood moved into Egypt as soon as they got Mubarak out the door, and Obama asked for that. All the preparedness in the world will NOT have us ready for everything that could happen. Obama has already curtailed our freedoms more than Iran can, unless they send an EMP our way. That is a nuclear warhead that is detonated overhead, in the atmosphere. The pulse sent out by such a device would move in a ripple effect over 3/4 of the whole United States, and instantly kill everything that runs on electricity. Everything. Hospital equipment, lights, heat, cars, computers, phones, all tech stuff, and airplanes in the sky couldn’t land. The devastation in the nation would put us back into life as it was in the mid 1800′s-but we don’t have oil lamps and such anymore. People on life support machines would die; no one could heat or cool their home, or have any electrical device that would work. Battery radios? Sure, but studios couldn’t broadcast. No gas pumped, even if trucks worked, so no good delivered to the stores. No banks could operate. You get the picture? Are we prepared for that? Do you trust our government to get in front of such a device? The guys coming across the border could be bringing in toxic things for air and water pollution. We couldn’t stop 19 terrorists on 9/ll. Can we catch all of those with suitcase bombs? So I agree, conventional warfare won’t go far in Iran; we should have joined up with Israel, and used bunker buster bombs and destroyed their nuclear facilities before they got them underground and scattered so that to bomb them NOW means a lot of innocent civilians will die. I’m glad you can sleep at night, but with Obama in the WH, the economic disaster looming over the whole world is enough to keep me awake except for one thing. It’s all part of the biblical end time scene, and so God is in charge. Jesus will come, and judgment will fall but Christians have hope. So I do sleep well, but not for the same reasons you do. Glad you like history. So you know, the men who don’t learn from history are destined to repeat it. You can’t study history very long without learning that.

    Glenn I Love you and have supported you for many years.  I agree with you on soooo many issues, until the Republican Primary Started.  I support Newt Gingrich mostly for his Ideas on Foreign Policy.  No progressive would move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on His first day in office like Newt has swore he will do.

    Haha! Dangerous foreign policy. Did you get that from Fox News, Glenn Beck or some other paid entity or can you think on your own? So yes, you do need to say more.

  • Brittney Chavez

    I think by you stating that ” Ron Paul is drawing the young, because they feel he will not send them to war” is a bit of an understatement. ANYONE that is voting for Ron Paul understands not only his Christian, but intellectual and peacefully sound beliefs. You then wonder who is going to lead our nation during this very dangerous times – have you bothered to look up Dr. Paul’s stance on the world wars? He is the ONLY one in favor of ending them, cutting EVERYONE’S taxes, stop giving hand outs to those that are taking advantage of it while still relieving those in true need. Dr. Paul has been consistent in his warnings to the US and unto the world – and he leaves us with a very important decision to make – and I pray to God that we chose the right one. The more that we are led into war – the MORE tax dollars we will pay, the higher inflation will go, the more the value of our dollar will decline – and THEN where will we be? And, by the way, the CURRENT troops support Ron Paul because I’m sure that they would love to come home to their families – get the PROPER medical treatment outside of a VA “camp” and be placed back to work – not on unemployment – defending our American soil. 

    The problem is, and unfortunately, most of the world agrees, Americans this day and time are not conservatives themselves, no matter what “label” they have while voting. We are too busy worrying about scandals of other candidates rocking the boat and who said what, who is the better business man and who can ” make us the richest economy” until we really lose sight of a major issue – we are being sold out and used as slaves in our own country – and for those that would like to sit back and take part in the popularity polls for Romney ( who can’t answer a question with a straight face to save his life) and Newt ( who may I remind you was fined for poor ethical practices, is a habitual cheater and loud mouth), I will certainly cast my vote for the only candidate that has done more for this country than all of the others – a 12 term elected Congressman that doesn’t take NO for an answer and NEVER SELLS out, BACKS down, nor has to tear anyone else down for him to leave an impression on the people.

    @ Glenn Beck — Are you unaware that there are four candidates running for the Republican nominee? You only mentioned three in the beginning. Guess which candidate you forgot? Surprised? Neither am I since I’m staring at a paid ad campaign endorsing Romney on your site.

  • Anonymous

    When I posted this I made a bet that a Paulbot would no doubt take what I said exactly this way.  So here goes.  There is not one candidate that exactly fills the bill I have for a leader of this country.  But here is the clincher we all have our issues.  Paul would have been better off by saying he was wrong than to say he did not read the magazine.  Action such as that can be equated with Obama not knowing what Jeremiah Wright was preaching at the church he attended.  
    The most I hope for is that I vote for the best person for the job as right now no one man has all the answers.

    This is vintage Glenn, and he’s absolutely right!  Gingrich has a great mind, but bad decision making skills, better suited to be an advisor than President.  Santorum is the best of the four, and I hate to say this, but Romney is #2.  At least he’s an honorable guy that you could trust.  Gingrich would cuddle up to Dingy Harry and Stretch Pelosi who are amongst the least honorable people you’ll ever find.

    Very true about history repeating itself, that is my
    exact point. We do not need a dictator. We, I think have learned that from different presidents (ie history). By casting in with a president that will
    pick and choose out of the constitution what fits him, that is what you gain, another dictator type administration. Our founding fathers were smart men, it would behoove some people to listen to their writings and look at these candidates with that in mind. I am not trying to change your mind, or anyone else’s for that matter. I just hate seeing people get wrapped around the axle on an issue
    (war) that isn’t the presidents to declare.

    As far as an EMP. Honestly I am not going to talk about missile defense (not my specialty) and military tactic on a public forum. But let’s just say, that if you have thought about it, someone in DoD has planned for it.

    As far as 9/11. I think allot of mistakes were probably
    made that day. Pre-9/11 the American public and the military were not thinking the way we do now. Allot has changed since then, I was in the military before 9/11 and have seen the change. We as a country have made mistakes and it is our job to learn from those mistakes and apply them to our lives.

    You are right about plans, they can fail. No one and
    nothing is perfect. We have a saying in the military, no plan survives first contact, meaning when you initially come under fire everything goes to hell.
    But when you are in a tight spot, you always fall back on your training and your experience that is your compass so to speak.

    I understand your concern with all the possible scenarios on the what ifs, but you can’t what if it to death. As we type, I have friends down range protecting our freedoms; we have people monitoring situations and things going on. Can any of that fail, YES. But it is what we have and it is the best in the world. But if we continually stretching ourselves so thin than we will lose the military superiority that we have. By closing unneeded bases (wasting funds and personnel) and using a more strategic approach to the way our military is deployed rather than let’s take all these troops and move them here, now let’s take them and move them here. That is a shell game that we will lose. It really boils down to this, would you rather protect Germany, England,
    Japan, S. Korea, Italy, etc. border or our own? As far as Iran, if we are talking absolutely everything failed and war is emanate scenario, either we do
    it lawfully and maintain our constitution or we have a dictator declare it. This is what this really boils down to.

  • Sunshine Kid

    I hate to say this, but I do believe you have hit upon the game plan.

    Why do people feel Santorum can’t get elected?  He’s made for red states, and he can tip the scales in swing states that are really hurting because they are blue collar hard working folks.  Paul is crazy, Newt is unelectable, and Romney on his own isn’t electable either (he needs the right VP candidate to avoid becoming John McCain & Bob Dole).

  • Brittney Chavez

    Define crazy. Since we are on “Glen Beck’s” website here – let’s discuss Christianity. Is it crazy to live by the golden rule, where we leave others alone, if we don’t want the same exact fate to land on our door steps? Is it crazy to consider yourself a conservative and want your money to be backed by gold – instead of running up “credit cards” full of imaginary money that you don’t have? Is it crazy to believe that our TROOPS that fight FOR US – want to come home and deserve to come home to stable employment in America instead of being shipped off to war? Is it crazy to want to stop giving away free money to those that do not and will not work?

  • Brittney Chavez

    Michelle, I’m pretty sure most main streamers have a hard time understanding Dr. Paul’s use of big words. People are so ready to discredit him. What I want to know, if Israel is such a big priority for us, why are we feeding money from China to Israel’s enemies? I don’t think that most Americans really have a clue about how much other countries HATE us.

    Yes, Newt is unquestionably a progressive.  But so is Romney and Santorum.  The majority imposing its values on the minority is not and never has been conservative.

  • Brittney Chavez

    I find it odd that Ron Paul blows up on the internet and gains momentum by people that are slowly pulling their heads out of the sand and then here comes a threat of our internet freedoms being taken away from us. 

  • Brittney Chavez

    Actually, Iran isn’t a big deal. UNTIL we start pushing their buttons and China and Russia step in to back Iran and not the US. Romney and Newt are looking for that big red button right now as we speak. Also, food for thought. I pay 18% income tax right now – but Romney when asked how high he thinks is fair for income tax, he said that over 35% WHICH IS THE LEGAL LIMIT – is unfair. Hmm….35 is higher than 18. I don’t like his math. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Paul-Marks/1266358046 Paul Marks

    Newt Gingrich the “blatent big government Progressive” who is campaigning for a flat rate Federal income tax of 15% (so that the Federal Income Tax rate is the same as the current Federal Capital Gains Tax rate) and who has a 90+ conservative voting record in Congress – year after year.

    Newt Gingrich does praise some very dubious people (for example both Roosevelts) and YES he is not a pure get-rid-of-every-entitlement-program-right-away person.

    However, someone who did not pay lip service to American icons like “Teddy” Roosevelt and “FDR” would have no chance of being elected President (Ronald Reagan made very similar statements). And someone who pledged to get rid of every unconstitutional welfare state program (as Ron Paul does) would not win a single State.

    So the real complaint againt Mr Gingrich is not that he is a “big government Progressive”, it is that he is a POLITICIAN – something he has never denied. Unlike his main opponent who has been campaiging for national office for 20 years (for example for the United States Senate in 1994) and still claims not to be politician.

    The race is between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney – of the two Mitt Romney is the “big government” person (although nothing like Barack Obama – their present policies, on tax rates and so on, may be similar, but their long term AIMS are not). Undermining Gingrich will not produce (could never have produced) a “President Rick Santorum” or a “President Ron Paul”. Neither of these gentleman could ever have been the nominee – as everyone who watched them in debate would know.

    At best the effort to undermine Mr Gingrich  it will produce a “President Mitt Romney” (who will, I fear,  leave things much as they are – i.e. make no real effort to reduce taxation or government spending, and the present situation is economically unsustainable). And, I fear (having watched Mr Romney’s weak replies to questions on his tax affairs and so forth) that the effort to undermine Mr Gingrich will produce a reelected “President Barack Obama”. Although, of course, I sincerly hope that Mr Romney (if the the nominee) somehow changes his personality enough to be able to defeat Mr Obama in debate (and so that he is able to counter attack against “mainstream” media attacks). I fully agree with Glenn Beck that the future or civilization itself depends on defeating Marxists such as Barack Obama.

    “But there must be a better alternative than Gingrich” – sadly, as so often with “must be” statements, this is not true.

  • Sandie

    Now here is someone who just may have an open mind – at least a questioning mind. Good for you Ryan. You may not be swayed, but at least you are willing to look at it.

  • Brittney Chavez

    Paul isn’t suggesting that we fight our wars on our own turf. He is suggesting that we stop picking on everyone else like bratty middle school children, get back to the basics and if anyone wants to come to American soil – we defend it. We can not afford to back other countries and spend as we have been doing. That is his point. There has got to be major change – otherwise, we are going to have nothing for our people at all – and no footing to defend others, even if we wanted to.

    Okay Iran is a theocracy run by Israel/America hating people who look forward to being martyred for Alah, just the kind of people I guess Ron Paul & apparently you think should have a nuke. They’re not concerned about mutually assured destruction like the Soviet Union was, which discouraged them from nuking us. Not a problem for the Mulahs in Iran. You might want to watch that debate again. I don’t support Romney, I support Newt who said he favored 15% rate. Hmm… 18 is higher than 15. What do you think of that math.

    like FDR?  Or JFK?  Or B. Clinton?   Oh, they’re all Dems, so of course, they are expected to

    get into ”mischief” but never a Rep!       Anyone who publicly ”shares” a private conversation

    which occurred within a marriage—well, I think that person has an ax to grind and shows no

    class.   If what a person does in his/her private life does not interfere with that one’s public life,

    then what’s the big whoop?   Do we need to know the person had private marriage counseling?

    Do we need to know the daughter had an abortion?  Do we need to know the son went through

    a drug rehab?  Please.  You, of all people, should know better Glenn.   All I can say, I have more

    in common with Newt (politically speaking) than I have with Romney.  Those I supported early

    in the game have fallen by the wayside, so I don’t have a horse in the race at this point.

    Crazy is mostly about his foreign policy.  Crazy is telling your best friend in the Middle East, if not the world, that they are on their own when a psychopathic dictator and his buddies are trying to erase them from the face of the earth.  We have to help our friends and stand up for those living under brutal dictators.  If we don’t help anyone else, what happens when they’re gone and we’re on our own against the whole group of these evil forces?  Not a pretty outlook, I’m afraid to say.  The best defense is sometimes a good offense.  We perhaps need to be smarter about choosing our battles, but can you honestly tell me that millions of Iraqis would be better off with Saddam Hussein still in power?  Would we have been better off if we’d just let Hitler take over Europe, then wait for the right time to come visit us?  Nobody wants to see our troops in harms way, but the strategy of hanging out and waiting for them to come to us is even more dangerous for not just our troops but also our civilians.

    Sharon Lamont, your predictions might be true, but then again, you might just be wrong.  There is no sense in getting yourself painted into a corner that you cannot back out from your position.  Remember, the Democrats predicted that the USSR would be at war with the USA should Reagan be elected, but that never happened.  In fact, the reverse was true.

    for a President to declare war? Last time I checked War was declared by
    Congress though the war powers act, so with that being said the other three candidates would be willing to go against or constitution by declaring an unlawful war.

    I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that we are hated because we are free. It doesn’t make any sense at all. I’d say that we are hated because we are constantly putting our noses where they don’t belong. We don’t want dictators around the world telling us what to do – perhaps the same goes for every other living, breathing human being in the world.

    I understand our friends need help – but at what cost? Our troops being sent home to live in civilization with PTSD – with no real healthcare? Being thrown into prison because they are trained combatants and somehow, we can’t seem to understand that our government made them that way? 

    Or at the cost of the American people? What happens when we are so completely depleted that we are unable to defend ourselves? 

    That is what we are facing. That is the true nature of Dr. Paul’s words. At this point, Joe, I’m sure that he knows that he’s not going to win this great race. But he’s getting his message out – and I think for him, reaching out and getting people to understand is his ultimate goal.

You should know being a vet, that most guys don’t like politicians and most dont care, at least this was my experience up until the last presidential election. The troops are waking up, no doubt about it. I think that the campaign contributions is referring more to the troops supporting Ron Paul more than other candidates rather than the actual amount. We don’t make jack. As far as you questioning my man hood or me going to war. F@3k you!

    Hey parker, I thought like you for a long time. I had my tours in Iraq, and I am happy I did, however the reasons for the wars are a lot more complicated than just what is on the MSM. Ron Paul has a message, and to me it is the proper one. You can make your own decision about the candidate that you choose, but the one thing you have to say is that paul votes his principles every time, and is not a flip flopper or a progressive, which I cannot say about any of the other candidates. Now if you think that being in the middle east is great because of the oil, or the Israelis, think again. Why do you think the reason is that we don’t have a military base in Israel, yet we have them in unfriendly countries? What happened with the USS Liberty?  If our presence in the middle east is for Israel, why do we have a base in Saudi Arabia? Why do we have Camp Arifjan and Camp Buhring in Kuwait? Why not have one in tel aviv instead? The establishment is playing us like a flute, and Israel is as well.

    Ok I know math may not have been your best subject.  So I will explain this to you the easiest way possible.  You take the amount donated to “other GOP” candidates, divide that into the amount given to Ron Paul.  Then subtract that number from 100%

    I am not sure who put out that number but he gets a majority of the active duty contributions, and that is including BHO, as of the last quarterly statement. Here is the politifact link that rates this as true.

    http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2011/jul/23/ron-paul/ron-paul-says-members-military-have-given-him-far-/

    Now Ron Paul service members are probably more engaged in the giving department, because they believe in that pesky document called the constitution that the swore to protect. Where as the other candidates could care less about it and I assume their supporters are in the same mind set.

    Yes there does seem to be a huge media blackout on Ron Paul. It is like the camera is even afraid of him at the debates. Only 4 candidates on stage, yet the camera can only pan wide enough to fit in 3 of the candidates. Guess which candidate they couldn’t seem to fit in.

You know the only medical doctor, and OB/GYN on stage, and probably in th entire building.

    I’m just sick of hearing Beck say he supports Paul EXCEPT his foreign policy.  His foreign policy is his strongest position.  Glenn “should” support the majority of the troops who support Paul over the others by donations, in which we don’t have much to give in the first place.  Glenn gets it on the debt and has stated (just like Paul) that if that is not addressed immediately our “foreign policy” WILL be decided for us.

    I have read Wayne’s comments and your challenges. Where in the world do you think I’ve gained my observations? It seems that Wayne is way more in tune with what’s going on in our world than you are. It seems that you just have a very old school “bully” way of thinking about things. It is a FACT that Ron Paul has more military supporters than the other candidates. And that probably comes from the enormous amount of support that he has for THEM. One of the biggest problems in America now is that we have this ego about us, this mentality of “immortality” that we can not be touched. Rome fell, my friend, so can we. 

    And as far as your coldness towards our troops now – I’d like to ask – what war were you in? How many tours? And how LONG did that WAR last?

    $34,000 worth of support is Nothing!!!! Wayne claimed 70% of all military personnel backed R Paul, can’t you read???  This was a source “Wayne” provided!!!!!  Rome fell, you’re right, and if people like you were running our military, then so would we!!

    I am a veteran, and I at first had some reservations about Pauls foreign policy. But the more I actually thought of it and the more research I done into the field the more I began to agree with it. I think anyone that isn’t a soldier or veteran, should keep their pie hole shut when it comes to foreign policy. While I like glenn beck and that he is generally truthfull, I have to say that on he is kowtowing the establishment line I really thought when he got away from MSM he would have a little more freedom to expose all of the manipulation that we have going on including the friends we keep. I wish beck would do due dilligence when it comes to our “allies” as well.

    Dude seriously. His foreign policy is probably the best out of all of them. Some how peace and diplomacy is all of a sudden voodoo. Has Israel asked for us to declare war on Iran? Has Israel asked for us to set up a base there to support them? How is it that Iran is all of a sudden kill every man women and child of the free world over night? Why do we need a President that will declare an unlawful war now! FEAR! Fear and emotion will lead to people giving up their freedoms. The easiest way to take someones freedoms is to convince them they have none. For the 5th time on this stupid site, War is declared by congress through the war powers act, not by a President. Keep allowing Presidents to discredit and disgrace our constitution and you will wake up with out one!

  • Brittney Chavez

    I was in North Myrtle Beach this past weekend and I got the chance to meet Dr. Paul. He is so amazing. I heard him – as he spoke to an overwhelmingly large crowd -and he told us – if Israel is not worried at this point about Iran, then why should we be? I don’t know if I want to open this can of worms or not ( may be too much, too soon) but I wonder if all of the upset in the middle east has anything at ALL to do with the Federal Reserve. It is a coincidence that in most areas that everything is happening there is NO central bank set up? 

    You are completely right. Before I learned about Ron Paul – and I mean really sat down to do my research and make an educated and sound decision for myself, I thought that our government was protecting us, even if it meant at the peril of our freedoms. But what is life without freedom and justice for all? We worry so much about being killed by other countries, by them taking our freedoms. It’s a COVER. Our own government is trying to take our freedoms by making us our slaves – slaves that fund a war – so they profit from it. Ron Paul is breaking the silence, he’s moving people in a way that hasn’t been done in so long – and people are afraid of that. People are afraid of change – even if it’s for the better. 

    People that are afraid of falling subject to a dictatorship better brush up on their knowledge of the NDAA.

    Hey duche bag, I am not worried about someone elses claim, I am setting the record straight.

I already gave you the link and if you are too ignorant to understand that I cannot help you. I am not the one claiming the 70% I am claiming he has more contributions than any other candidate from active duty soldiers, which is fact reported in accordance with campaign finance laws.

    Yes, 5 tours. I believe it was Wayne that said he’s been on 5. I could be wrong on the number there, let’s check with Wayne. I know you’re a stickler for numbers. And I never said I was “Ms. Rambo” nor did I say I could handle war. I’m sure that I couldn’t. I’m sure that I’d look around at all of the demise, the destruction, the sadness – and I would cry my heart out. I’m sure that I wouldn’t be able to endure one second of it without completely losing my mind. I’m sure that I couldn’t handle what my little cousin had to handle when he left for his second tour. I’m sure that I could never understand what’s happened to him, why he was the way he was, or why he had to die because of this war and leave behind his wife and two children. I will never understand why my friend William is not the same William that he once was. Even looking in his eyes – I can see the change. I can never understand that. But, I can empathize.

    He may never be president. That is somethig that only time will tell. But before you attack someone, understand you will get the same response. I treat people as they should be treated. If you are supporting another candidate, I have no problem with that, except you are indeed voting for the wrong man. Do your research, and don’t just think you know it all. Look at all the facts and research. We have been played like a violin. You were too if in fact you were a vietnam vet. (that is if you were volunteer, if you were drafted you had no choice) I have zero problem fighting a war, and I actually liked being on deployment more than garrison, however when I started looking at the true reasons that we went to war, and all the BS we have been pumped on the teevee, I started to realize there are some holes in all of it. Now afganistan is a little different, however to fight for a tie is ignorant. If we are going to go to war, have congress declare it, go over kick some serious @ss and get the hell home. But people that haven’t attacked us and have zero capabilities of doing so I have zero fear of. If we were smart we would get out of all foreign lands and secure our borders. If you think spending unsustainable levels of money on a credit card is a good thing, I have to question your motives. Bringing home our military might to protect the homeland is probably a good idea.

    I have to admit I was at first an 11C (indirect fire infantry, AKA Mortarman), but then the army at times re classes involuntary on a lottery system to keep proper levels. When I joined we only had 11-X to choose from and the military chose which one you got 11B or 11C. I wanted 11B but they felt they had other things in mind for me. But they fixed it later not even knowing it on involuntary reclass. Woohoo. Sometimes the army does things right on accident.

    Ron Paul has been in congress for 23 years and put out 620 bills. Hard worker. Effective? Only one passed and that was to put something in a museum.  As Rick Santorum said, RP will be ineffective in getting the house to pass anything, but as Commander in Chief he’ll be able to weaken our borders and give free reign for Islamists to destroy Israel, then Europe, Africa; Chavez will take South America; China will take Asia.  Then they’ll ALL come after US!

    Don’t worry, where the extreme Left meets the extreme Right (as Paulies and Occupiers are now joining forces) is the only place where Paul can get a vote.  They may be the noisiest but they’re a minority of whackos.

    Glenn is absolutely right about Newt.  Gingrich is attempting to deceive the American people — conservative people, that is — and apparently those in SC are falling for it.  How insane!  Newt is  all what Glenn said, and a bully ta-boot. He’s running to be king, not President. Santorum is our best bet, however, Romney, I believe, is diplomatic enough to listen to reason and the voice of the people, and, therefore, can be swayed to right of center.

    I think I have made up my mind and going with RP… I know I’ll catch a lot of heat for it here but who else should I put my support behind? The rest of the field is garbage!  I donated to the Cain campaign and he was dumped first round. :( So going with the only man on the state who has for the most part stood by his word over the years. Oh and keep praying that America has a better future for my son.

    The reason the tea party has been a lie is, we have corrupt groups calling themselves tea party who are really GOP PACS – like Tea Party Nation, Tea Party Patriots — all came along and hijacked the original anti-Bush tea party from 2007. Now they are pushing Newt and sending around incorrect voter guides leading people to think Newt is a great conservative.

    Just as predicted, they are now shoving establishment creeps down our throats. In NH Romney bought and paid for the election by handing money to his endorsers, and paying off their campaign debts. But the tea party here overwhelmingly supported Ron Paul.. The news media, corrupt itself, would not broadcast that fact.

    Glenn has not helped things with all this AIPAC nonsense.. — he’s just about ensuring a Romney win as well by bashing other candidates, using worn out memes from the press, and the whole 9 yards..just like the rest.

    Why are we so morally bankrupt in this country that we cannot support a man of character for president because the freakin’ media tells us not to?

    Glenn you helped bring this on… admit it buddy .. you did some good at the beginning but then you lost your way……

    Repent. Because you are helping Obama win re-election. It’s inevitable.

    You also undermined the tea party.

    Actually, Paul is the only one who polls against Obama by 47% because he brings the independents in. Mitt and Newt are the ones who will insure a BHO win.. which is just what the establishment republicans would RATHER HAVE than a true constitutional conservative like Ron Paul. Look it up cowboy.

    Santorum is the dangerous one. He wants to bomb Iran — TOMORROW. LOL He campaigned in NH for months and months before the others and we ignored him. He got 10%, and Newt got 8% Listen to us in NH, we vet our candidates well. Romney won because this is his backyard and he BOUGHT PEOPLE OFF and has been campaigning since 2010 elections. 24% of us were smart enough to vote for RON PAUL.  But Newt was seen for what he is… corrupt!

    Ron Paul Votes against bills that he himself pads up with Big spending knowing it will pass to further advance his fake image. His district has some of the worst debt in the nation. Plus if he is elected all his ideas will be shot down just like he shoots everything down. He would be essentially a lame duck for four years. Plus if he is elected it will be a free for all for every terrorist in the world. Don,t worry they will come here no matter how nice Mr Paul is to them. Now I see Ron Paul supporters are slamming every blog in America its shows devotion.Skewing every poll. Don’t worry we know its not real support.

    Glenn.

    Are you a friggin cult leader?

    Do you demand complete loyalty to your opinions?

    Most people who disagree with you on Newt are thinking for themselves and looking at the evidence. The overwhelming evidence is that he would govern mainly as a Conservative, not a Progressive.

    You can cherry pick what supports your thesis, and ignore everything that doesn’t like a true Presstitute, but be aware that you are ruining your reputation among many people who valued your opinion.

    Nothing wrong with criticizing Newt. But Santorum and Romney have as much evidence, or more of Progressivism, relative to the length of their careers in politics, and you barely acknowledge it.

    Why?

    Do you believe the Republican nominee (not Paul) will do a better job reducing government spending, programs, regulations, and keep taxes from going up, encourage small business and capitalism, reform entitlements and attack the deficit, have a sane foreign policy, and preserve as much as possible the best military in the world, or do you think Obama will do a better job of that?……………………………………………………………….

    No, whoever it is won’t be perfect. But they are the only chance we’ve got. There is no other choice.

    Yes, I would vote for Paul over Obama if those were the only two choices. He is the lesser of the two evils. But that won’t be what happens.

    To me, Ron Paul was the only guy speaking with any credibility.  He is in this race to continue to educated the population– boy talk about a tough mission in life! His “radical” views on foreign policy are directionally correct– we do need to stop sending troops all over the globe to back up the cabal of multinational corporations that so heavily influences things.  If you are in doubt go to youtube and check out Dwight Eisenhower preach about the dangers of the military industrial complex in 1961!  Regarding domestic policy– again Ron Paul is the only candidate talking about taking 1 Trillion out of the budget!   The stock market would soar, confidence would soar, and America would boom!  These shysters and huckers on his right are like game show hosts on TV offering cute little responses with no meat on the bone.  Vote for Ron Paul and start making real change

    A brokered convention is entirely within the realm of possibility.  As the primaries go on, I don’t see Mitt Romney or Ron Paul leaving, as long as they have money.  I also don’t see Newt leaving.  This would make a 3 way race.  If no one gets over 50% of the delegates, all bets are off.  As the race goes on, people will be taking a closer look at Newt, Paul, and Romney, and eventually get to the conclusion “none of the above.”  They will also get a second look at Rick Perry as he campaigns for Newt, and ask him to serve as our nominee at the convention.

    Amen to that Glenn. You’re not going to hear things like that anywhere else but here,folks. Forget about Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, let alone Hannity or O’Reilly. This is what makes Beck the best in conservative business. He’s amazingly informed and his broad knowledge is utterly unmatched. He doesn’t give a damn about pleasing anyone or losing his own audience. He outright speaks my mind, which is a great feeling. The only other conservative personality that is close to my thinking is Mark, but only until he begins to say that he likes Newt Gingrich a lot. That’s when I begin to think that I tuned in a different, progressive radio station.

    The real war that I am talking about is the possibility of the real war between the western countries and China and Russia.  China and Russia are major emerging economies which are becoming very powerful and will soon take over the reigns as the largest economies of the world.  China will be number one by 2020 and Russia will be number five by 2020.  As their needs for fossil fuel increases, the need for oil from the middle east will increase dramatically.  This will put the western world on very shaky ground for its oil needs.  If Iran will get to a position that will be able to defend itself from western agression, it will be agle to dictate who it sells its oil to, which it should. I think the Chinese and Russian governments know that this is the main reason for the US and European take down of Iran is coming which also has the purpose of slowing China’s access to middle eastern oil and thus slowing down China’s growth.

       America is run by the PRIC cartel (Phenominally Rich In Control) Their organization is the Council on Foreign Relations and their financial arm is The Federal Reserve Bank. The FED processes 1.9 Trillion dollars a day and they can (and do) spend whatever is necessary to corrupt our voting process. Glenn has talked about both of these organizations and when he started to hone in on the truth they cancelled his show.
        Only Ron Paul has has not been corrupted by the PRIC cartel. Newt Grigrich is a PRIC member. If you think that the Republican Party will solve our problems you are part of the problem. The Republican Party has the same goals as the Democratic party… they just choose to do it slower. Even Glen is reluctant to show too much support for Ron Paul. Ron Paul will probably not get elected but he will educate millions of Americans and for that I give him my money and time. SID SUTHERLAND

    Voters in South Carolina haven’t been able to wise up for too many years now. They have given us McCain and Lindsey Graham- read that RINOs, career politicians. The only case that I am proud of them is their solid backing of another great American patriot Jimmy DeMint. However, they’re losing their credibility as a conservative state right about now. I have to laugh every time when Gingrich claims that he isn’t an establishment kind of a politician. There are actually, as seen in SC, enough dumb people who buy that rhetoric. Wake up, all you true conservatives.You already destroyed my candidate Michele Bachmann-the only true conservative in the race. She was betrayed by all those corrupt, spineless, phony, counterfeit conservatives including Sarah Palin.

    Pundits always say you can’t win without the independents.  Ron Paul wins a majority of independents.  Republicans aren’t going to vote for Obama.  Ron Paul even wins the anti-war and pro-liberty Democrats.  If Ron Paul is the nomination, it could actually be a landslide for Ron Paul. 

    He may not be the smoothest speaker (how’s the smooth talker working for you?), but he stands on principle.  He will always do what he says he will do.  He will never lie to you.  Why is it so inconceivable to vote for an honest, principled man?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Christine-Kroeker/1239032574 Christine Kroeker

    Every great empire falls for a combination of two things– overspending and overextending their military.  If we don’t pull our military back to the US to actually defend us and if we don’t balance our budget, our economy will collapse and we will have NO DEFENSE.  This will not make us safe.  Attacking other countries is just fodder for suicide bomber recruitment. 

    We trained and supplied arms to Al Qaeda and now we are fighting them.  We supported Sadam Hussein before deciding he couldn’t be allowed to govern Iraq.  We supported and funded Mubarak (in Egypt) before we said he must step down.  We supported the Al Qaeda in Lybia while fighting them in Iraq and Afganastan.  I think this sounds like a much more dangerous foreign policy than a limited foreign wars, bringing our soldiers home to defend our borders, and only going to war when declared by Congress.

    I feel that Ron Paul has the correct ideas when it comes to foreign policy.  Let the countries take care of themselves.  There is a risk to this policy because other countries with power will try to manipulate their alliances and monetary domenance over others like the US has been for the past 50 years or so.  But as long as we are strong and powerful also, we will not be taken for granted from an economic perspective.  The key is to be strong and militarily powerful to defend our freedoms and rights and get rid of this evil federal reserve system and put the money policy back in the hands of a congress with integrity instead of a congress on the take.

    My husband and I attended 9-12 and 8-28 – we had been huge Beck fans until now. The way he has demonized and mocked Newt Gingrich shows absolutely no class and reflects badly on Glenn. Romney is the least conservative guy up there who changes his “opinions” based on solely what will benefit him politically, yet Beck won’t go after Romney. I’m so tired of the media trying to shove Romney down our throats – the guy just isn’t authentic and doesn’t seem to have a single conviction. Newt is a flawed person but at least he admits his mistakes which shows humility. Has anyone ever seen Romney admit he made a mistake? No, he excuses everything.  People want a straight shooter and someone who will stand up even if we don’t always agree with him.

    The Conservative movement has become an angry mob. They are looking for blood rather than a conservative president. Gingrich is throwing read meat to the angry crowd and they are eating up.

    Politics has been turned into an arena sport. Voters want to see smack downs and yelling matches rather than sane discussions about the facts.

    The question that has been bugging me is Is the Political Entertainment Industry hurting America?

    It bears repeating that voters have lost the ability to distinguish between reality and political theater. Newt Gingrich is the Shakespeare of political theater. They have gone after personalities instead of policies. They are swooning over Fox News Contributors.

    Glenn, Glenn, Glenn. We’re trying to get away from the media, pundits, experts, and other blowhards (no offense) telling us what to think, how to feel, which person to vote for. Americans can and ARE thinking for themselves again – finally. Debate is healthy, discussion is good. But we should expect fairness and truth from each other, and most certainly from people like you.

    How is it that conservatives, Republicans and even Independents are so far apart on issues? Don’t we all want to protect our Constitution, rein in spending, and defend our country legally? We need to stop bickering and fighting. We are going to hand the election to BO if we don’t get it together. The left is laughing at us, watching us implode.

    Also, the ultra religious folks need to give back the Republican Party. They’ve had it long enough. They hi-jacked it and it’s time we said no more.

    Something to think about: when I listen to the candidates and read what they write, the only one I ever hear mention the U.S. Constitution is Ron Paul. That counts for something in my book.

    As a 34 yr old mother, there is absolutely no way that I can bring myself to EVER vote for Newt Gingrich. He’s like a scandal waiting to happen. In the last few years, what has happened to politicians who have cheated on their wives? They have resigned and later found jobs as “political commentators”. Corporations now days check credit reports and perform background checks on potential employees and if they find something shady chances are more likely they won’t get hired. For example, are you going to hire an accountant who can’t even manage his own personal finances? Is this country going to “hire” Newt Gingrich, when he has been found guilty of ethics violations? Who decided to abandon his family in their time of need, to pursue his own lustful desires-not once, but at least twice? Talk about flip flopping and hypocrisy again while persuing an affair with Callista while accusing President Clinton of his affairs. What makes anyone think that he’ll put the needs of the country first when he has shown such poor behavior and lies? Do you really think Callista would be a good role model to the young women in this country? Just out of college and sleep with the man in charge to get where you are today? I believe that Newt and Callista have sought forgiveness and while I know in some respect they are sincere and said they have found peace with God, there are still consequences  that come along with the choices they have made, no matter how long ago it had taken place. Not meaning to be insensitive, but person who once was a heavy smoker and since quit and have made their peace with God, may develop lung cancer as a consequence to their previous choices. That’s what I feel about Newt Gingrich, he made some bad choices personally and professionally, while he says made his peace with God, there’s still consequences to his actions. Another reason why I can’t in good conscience vote for him is because he is continuing  to spread lies and use cunning words to make the other candidates look bad by making false assumptions.  That’s why I can’t EVER bring myself to vote for him for the President of the United States, because I feel like he can’t be trusted. 
    He had his chance to show the country what he could do back in the ninety’s and he blew it because of his own selfish desires. We need someone with better character and ethics to lead this country. If he’s the nominee, as a declared republican, I’ll have a better conscience voting for Obama.

    Good job on doing your own analysis instead of taking what Beck says word for word.  Beck also realizes Newt is far more conservative.  Even Michael Reagan came out and said Newt best exemplified his father’s conservative positions/ideals.  He is a very good indicator of who is closest to Reagan – and clearly, Michael is declaring Newt over Romney.

    It appears Beck has a soft spot for progressives.  There is some fear, rage, and revenge towards anyone who is threat to Romney for the GOP nomination.  If it were Perry, then Beck would wack him over the head.  Beck raises serious credibility issues about himself with his relentless rants about Newt and Trump and Paul, while being silent on drawbacks of Romney, Bachman/Santorum.

    In 1998 when Gingrich “resigned” as Speaker he said, “”I’m willing to
    lead but I’m not willing to preside over people who are cannibals.” Was
    he calling the House members “cannibals” because there were 84 ethics
    charges filed against him during his tenure and because he was
    sanctioned by a 395–28 House vote? Did it have something to do with the
    check kiting scheme gone awry? I thought Santorum made an excellent case
    in the most recent debate, portraying Newt as volatile and
    irresponsible, with the credibility of someone who was there when all of
    this was happening. So what’s going on in South Carolina? If the
    sampling of news article interviewees truly embodies the spirit of South
    Carolina voters, it seems they want a president who will, first, create
    jobs, and second, share the same religious faith they do. Mitt is the
    obvious choice to fit those criteria – yes Mormons are Christians – and
    if not him, why isn’t Santorum the front-runner? The Newt surge doesn’t
    make any sense. Nominating him is ensuring an Obama win in November. Is
    it because Newt brings the most drama to the stump with his fat-cat
    appetites, yelling at CNN moderator John King like a guest on The Jerry
    Springer Show? In that case, Americans are showing themselves to be a
    bunch of reality-show-fed sheep. How depressing.

    One of the biggest issues before us is how the President will protect our freedoms and liberties.  We need to look at how each candidate stands on the NDAA issue and the EEA issue which are core to our Constitutional based liberties.  Gun control laws are another core federal issue.  I wish these issues would be focused on the next debate so that we could get to the core of their beliefs.  These should be the federal level issues that need to be addressed.  Abortion and medical coverage and marriage issues should be handled as a state level issue.  That way if you don’t agree to a particular state’s belief, just move to a state that does handle your issues as it wants and you can take your money to that state and pay your state and local taxes to that government’s beliefs.

    it because Newt brings the most drama to the stump with his fat-cat
    appetites, yelling at CNN moderator John King like a guest on The Jerry
    Springer Show? In that case, Americans are showing themselves to be a
    bunch of reality-show-fed sheep. How depressing.

    I also like Santorum for his support of the reversal of the NDAA bill.  He was very forceful the other day about Romney’s support for the bill.  I don’t know if the candidates have given much thought on the details of the bill.

    Stop and picture Mit Romney as the president. Can’t do it, can you. That’s because we have no idea what he would do as president. He is even better at not answering questions than Obama. Newt might be a loose cannon, but at least he is pointed in the right direction. As far as his being a progressive, I don’t see it. His history in government was one of lowering taxes and weakening the welfare state, while getting the democrats to go along with him. We might want someone to go into the whitehouse and undo 50 years of progressivism, but it isn’t going to happen without the total co-operation of his party and 60 seats in the senate, which isn’t going to happen. So, let’s start with someone that will get the ball rolling, and that’s Newt.

    I don’t see it that way.. That is the establishment meme. You see how afraid of ron paul the establishment is. All you have to ask yourself is why they would want to dismiss him. It becomes very clear that there is a status quo to protect. Neither side of the political establishment is any better than the other. Just look at deficit spending.  What was your opinion on the debt ceiling debate? Were you happy when the RINO’s approved the hike? Or was it something that had to be done, because it gave us a few more years of failed policy instead of exposing it instantly?

    @jen00:disqus   Time will tell if Beck is really a closet progressive.

    Either full blown or quasi.  After all the cheer leading

    for conservative values, if this proves to be true, he will

    disappoint many, lose a lot of respect plus the folks will

    go away in droves—I among them.  I really enjoyed his

    TV shows on Fox.  Do you think the stress/strain of his

    own network and all that he’s involved with may have

    had an effect on his—-I don’t know—personality, mental

    acuity?   I’m sure if there is a qualified doctor who reads

    these threads and has followed Beck for several years

    might be able to shed some light on this. Sad, if it’s true,

    but as I stated: time will tell.  Sure liked his shows on

    Brittney; as far as Parker, he claims to be a vet but only told us he works at the VA. We have asked and asked what his MOS (military job) was, and get nothing, he has told us however that he works or worked at the VA. We have told him ours and found out that allot of the OEF/OIF vets posting here have actually served at the same locations, or been through those places. As for Parker, he attemps to discredit a canidate that is backed by allot of troops, both monitarily (granted we make nothing compared to a corp.) and with our voice. All he has proven is he would rather support a canidate backed by the likes of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. He has proved that his lack of military experiance/policy/tactics and middle east culture would just get people killed in the name of Big Govt, and oil. He is a true tool bag, through. There is no way to reason with this type, he is simply protecting his govt job at the VA by getting troops killed and injured in war after war after all, with out injured vets there is no VA. To be an allie with a nation does not require constant blood shed, this is why we have diplomacy and sanctions. If war is to be fought it is REQUIRED to be declared by congress, NOT the President. This is the core of his arguement. He would defile the constitution over night in the name of FEAR.

    If your saying Ron Paul is Hitler, than you are Chris Mattews. Did you listen to the last debate? He even gave you the facts on Obama care, while the other three continue to show they are incapable of understanding the constitution. Paul stated that it would have to be overturned by a vote in the house as well. He is for the constitution as the other three are not. They are just 180 degree opposite of Obama. You gain nothing if you destroy our constitution. By voting for one of those three you are either for an illegal war, NDAA (specifically giving the president the say in who is a terrorist and who isnt, look at Hitler to see how this type of thinking works out) or is for some sort of SOPA that would restrict our right to even have this conversation. So before you start name calling, reaserch these canidates (excluding main stream media) and make your own choice. I respect your right to vote as you should respect mine. This is still a free country.

    Everyone can see that Newt is no progressive (if he were a progressive, he would have teamed up with Bill Clinton to increase spending. But no, Newt managed to decrease spending. For those of us who actually use our brain, the conclusion is that Newt is no progressive) So I’m thinking: where does this phony obsession of Glenn with Newt being a progressive come from?  
     
    The only reason I can come up with: Mitt Romney has payed Glenn to destroy Newt. After all, Mitt is loaded, and even Glenn is only human. And a cool $ 1 million is still a cool $ 1 million.

Both of them were in favor of the climate change reg-legislation. They both were for advocating for – or at least was advocating for Freddie Mac.

    Rick Santorum has been standing there all along America, right in  front of our eyes. I picked Rick way before Glenn or anybody came out for him. I was behind him when he wa sonly 3 percent…..

    clots.  Blood clots are very common in cancer patients.  He
    is now back on the chemo but has a long way to go.  We are
    praying for a miracle for him.
    I really and truly believe if he had been on Obamacare he
    would be dead by now.  An e-mail from Mike on Glenn Beck’s e-mail
    had a list of all of the things Newt Gingrich has done.  One was that on
    November 15, 2010 Newt  supported Romneycare and blamed the
    liberals.  I have not heard where Newt stands on that issue today,
    He uses to many platitudes and doesn’t always answer questions
    at the debates.  Mitt Romney has stated over and over again that
    he will give every state an excemption from Obamacare and will
    try to repeal it.  Newt’s position on this issue as of today is ?????
    The list of all of the things that Newt did was on Mike’s list.  Many
    of the things he believes in will curl your toes.  It is scary.  He
    supported individual health care mandates.  He backed Pres Obama’s
    health care mandates.  He supported individual health care mandates
    when Clinton was President.
    I and I believe most of the American people do not want to deny the
    poor people in this country health care.  I’d much rather have Paul
    Ryan’s plan where individuals can buy their own health insurance
    and have the government of the states give a check to the insurance
    companies that the poor people  choose for theirselves and
    that no person with a pre-existing condition be denied healthcare.
    We do not have to have health care under the jurisdiction of the
    Federal Government.  We will lose our freedom of choice if the
    Government has control.  I do not trust Newt to keep our laws
    and constitution intact.  I do not trust Newt at all.

    You’ve gotten the Propaganda down pat skidmark. You’re like a little parrot mimicking Satan. What liberal website is feeding you this propaganda?

    So you want to take away Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps, Housing assistance, Free medical, and give the BOMB to Iran. That’s nice of you skidmark. That will really level the playing field.

    It’s Congress who declares war on another Nation, not the President, skidmark. You need to read the Constitution before mouthing off about what Ron Paul has said. You don’t understand how this country works, as I have told you so many times in the past.

    You’re stupider than dirt.

    Wrong, Glenn. It is so easy to justify that it takes little or no thought.
    I made my decision long before the nominating process began. I like Newt and I always have.
    He was there, involved, and instrumental during the Reagan years. 16 million new jobs is nothing to scoff at. He presided over engineering not 1 historic shift in Congress, but 2 and when he wins the nomination, he will organize a 3rd.
    He was Speaker during slick Willie’s tenure and presided over another 11 million job boon.
    Every time this guy is involved in the machinations of D.C. taxes drop, jobs are created, we STOP spending more than we are taking in (balanced budgets), regulatory burdens shift to a more tolerable level (government gets out of the way of the private sector) and the economy actually grows as it should as opposed to the multiple disastrous outcomes of the moron (means “mighty warrior” in Swahili lol) who currently occupies the Oval Office.
    You are so hell bent on attacking Newt that you are incapable of seeing the upside potential.
    Only in history does past behavior predict future outcomes. In the life of each individual, we are able to learn from our mistakes. It does not matter if you follow Judeo/Christian doctrine, Mormon, Catholic….makes no difference. They share common themes. Love. Forgiveness. Redemption. Repentance. Yet, YOU, Glenn, discount ALL of those themes and automatically stipulate that it is impossible for Newt to have encountered or experienced ANY of those themes. 
    Well, you are a public figure well adjusted and accustomed to taking the heat for the things that you say. 
    Please indulge me and allow me to point out that it would be a tiny bit hypocritical for me as an alcoholic (clean and sober for 15+ years now! Thanks to God) to criticize you and refuse to acknowledge the fact that you have CHANGED and turned from that lifestyle. Yet, you basically do the same to Newt EVERY DAY! What does that make you?

    Saying Ron Paul has been right for 20 years about the Federal Reserve is so Progressive.
    Saying we cannot allow our country to become a European style Socialist entitlement society is so Progressive.
    Saying that the elites in Washington and the Press don’t understand America is so Progressive.
    Saying that bigoted, anti-religion and dictatorial judges have to be held accountable is so Progressive.
    Saying that the Federal Government has got to be scaled back dramatically and power restored to the states is so Progressive.
    Saying that we have to bring back a sense of pride in earning a paycheck, instead of receiving entitlements is so Progressive.
    Saying we need to look to the Declaration of Independence and the Founding Fathers is so Progressive.

    Not.

    Gee, it sounds like Glenn Beck.

    And this is the stuff I have heard him say repeatedly for over 20 years consistently. Yet we are told that cherry picked comments spun in a certain way prove just the opposite.

    Hey Glenn. I don’t know what your problem is, but you seriously need to get a clue.

    If you don’t like someone because of their messy personal life and 1 ethics violation, I completely understand. But calling someone a Progressive, who is clearly a Conservative on pretty much everything that matters is just sad.

    Anyone who thinks it’s likely this guy would govern like a RINO or a Progressive is just plain clueless.

    I hope you do understand that I think what Ron Paul said about Bachman & Santorum on the Leno Show was dispicable & that I’m glad Paul has not the remotest chance of being the Republican nominee. If I were to engage in Ron Paul type hyperbole, it would seem, considering his past news letters, that he is more likely to be an anti-Semite than it is that Santorum & Bachman hate Muslims or gays. I for one don’t believe they hate anyone. If Doc Paul wants to throw stones, maybe he shold start with himself & those news letters, the contents of which he claims to have had no clue. In my opinion, only in the Twilight Zone does Paul have the closest chance of beating Obama next to Romney, so why report it.

  • Jeremy VonLanken

    That might be what he said within the last week. What has he said before that contridicts every thing he said. Everyone of those issues he has supported the other side either in voting record or with his fat kid mouth. He is no different than romney. Who could believe him? He has changed his views and opinions so many times. There is only so many times you can flip flop before your character is in question. With him voting and defending and supporting both sides of an issue I guess he has himself covered when it comes down to debates, but when it comes to leading newt and mitt are both wishy washy pandering shrubs, that have zero care for what is right. They only want to win. Now you are free to vote for who you want but the ”anyone but obama” vote is just as stupid as the delusion that obama is a good president. Essentially obama, mitt, amd newt are all the same candidate, with slight variations.

    He doesn’t mean it. He has already proven that by having contradictory stances on nearly all of those issues before.

He just mashes everyone elses principles together and regurgitates the talking points to who he is talking to. It is called pandering.

    After today’s primary while Gingrich was talking issues with details & a game plan, the others were talking in generalities & platitudes.
    Even if he doesn’t follow thru, at least Gingrich is talking about real issues like the Canadian pipeline & pointing out the Saul Alinsky influences of the Marxist in the White House & how dangerous our Socialist & Chief is.
    People need to know who Obama really is & Gingrich will tell them, while Romney panders to the establishment, Paul consults with Rod Serling & Santorum wears his heart on his sleeve.
    Say what you will about Gingrich, but it cannot be denied, a lot of welfare reform & other good things happened in spite of the negative, when he was House Speaker.
    What have the others accomplished compared to him, when you weigh the good against the bad?
    Gingrich says he’s found God & is not the same guy he used to be. Maybe we should believe him, give him a chance & consider that some good things got accomplished when he was Speaker, whether the President @ the time was Clinton or Reagan.

Supporting federal funding for abortions for rape and incest cases, yet he is pro life. He is not a statesman. Statesmen are guided by principles, and they vote their principles, as well as do what they say they are going to do. Newt is just a deception expert, something I cannot support.

    Dr. Paul is the only statesman in the race. I am sorry you are only looking for what the MSM is calling the electible candidates. You might try and pick apart some of the “principled” positions of your candidate and find the truth. Gingrich panders for a vote, he does not stick to his guns any longer than to get a vote, then goes the other way. He has no principles except the principle to get elected at any cost, and that means lying, cheating, insider trading (fannie/freddie), not to mention his ethics case.

    Voting for Newt is voting the establishment line. Nothing will be different.

    I’m not on the beck kool-aid. I am on the constitution kool aid. I am voting for a principled candidate, not a wishy washy, flip flopping, vote pandering, ethically challenged, hypocritical, principle compromising duche bag. I am voting for Paul. Even if I have to write him in. Now you can vote for who ever you want and I really don’t give a sh!t. That is your vote, but if the republican party wants to be around for a few more election cycles, it would be a good idea to find some principled candidates that vote consistently for the constitution. If not I see a huge loss for the country this election cycle, and several years of liberty raping by the progressives until the revolution happens. I hope you have stocked up on ammo. I have.

    Letter from MLK Jr. to Viva Sloan, October 2, 1956:
    “Dear Miss Sloan:
    Thanks for your very kind letter of September 17, making inquiry concerning the way the Negro will vote in the coming election. I am of the impression that the Negro voter will go largely for the Democratic Party. I haven’t fully decided which candidate I will vote for. In the past I have always voted the Democratic ticket. At this point I am still in a state of indecision. Stevenson seems to be more forthright on the race question than Eisenhower, but the Democratic Party is so inexplicably bound to the South this it does leave doubt in the minds of those interested in civil rights. Let us all hope that the candidate most concerned with the welfare of all people of America will win the election.
    Sincerely your,
    M.L. King Jr.
    President
    MLKamlb
    P.S. There gas been nothing published from this office taken from letters received from sympathizers in our cause.

    I totally agree with Glenn Beck’s thoughts on this. What is so shocking is we have been preparing for three years to recognize the signs of Progressives, and all this time people kept saying” We don’t want a career politician”, when they will do just that. They don’t want to look at ‘Their’ favorite canadate’s past, but they want to look at everyone else’s, which is fine, but when Newt started saying his past was ‘off limits’, that was a big Red Flag for me, especially since I know many of the underhanded tricks and stunts he has pulled. The latest ones should have waken up Republicans and conservatives, especially the Tea Party, but sadly it doesn’t seem to. One SC voter even bragged that he voted for Gingrich because Gingrich was the Tea Party Favorite. Oh My gosh! Are we going to have to ‘pick our poison’ in Nov? Another thing that bother me is people saying ‘Out Right Blantant Lies’ about Romney, and even putting words in his mouth that he did not say. Romney hasn’t complained once. Maybe he should,but it seems that no matter what Romney does, many have decided that it isn’t good enough, and that is a shame, because Romney would be 100 times better president than Gingrich. Santorum would be 100 times better. Even Ron Paul would be 100 times better. South Carolinins voted based on emotions, not with their heads.

    For today, and every day you post here, I will post your lies on every comment you make on this site….

    Why don’t you just go away you liar and Phony Soldier. Everyone would understand that move on your part. Your hate and ignorance is not winning any converts here. You’re the butt of jokes and ridicule.

    Please see a professional about your fixation on little children strtlk/mtclayboy.

    You’re a lying sack of crap. You denied serving on a submarine, and knowing what SSBN was. I posted your words verbatim.

    You’re a Wikipedia sailor and a lying puke.

    Here’s your “one on one” you little puke of a man.

    1. As mtclayboy you claimed that you served on a BOOMER. As strtlk you claimed not to know what a Boomer or a SSBN was “I don’t care” were your exact words. You also stated that you didn’t know where Bangor, Wa. was which is where Boomers (submarines) are fitted for duty.
    Any real Submariner would know that. You didn’t!

    2. You then changed your story and claimed that you were on a BOOMER. You lied.

    3. As mtclayboy you claimed that you had damaged your ears while serving on a Submarine. As strtlk, you claimed that you damaged your ears while serving on a submarine.

    4. As mtclayboy you claimed that you joined the Navy and served for five years on a submarine but according to the timeline you gave that was proven to be a lie. You lied.

    5. As mtclayboy you said that you were a Fireman. As strtlk, you claimed you were a Fireman.

    6. As mtclayboy and as strtlk, you posted the same bigotry and hate against Glenn Beck almost word for word even using the same spelling and grammatical errors and focusing on the children. I’ve posted many of them here already.

    Are you catching on everyone? He’s a liar plain and simple and nothing he claims can be believed.

    Folks, I have the posts of these two Phonies and have posted just a couple to prove he is a liar and just makes up stories about his Military Service. His latest story is right out of Wikipedia. His classified VMS crap is also right out of Wikipedia and US NAVY.mil. I’m a member there.

    He wants to take me on “one on one” when he’s already proven in his own words that he’s a liar and a fake.

    Flag the idiot so he can come back as another loser like his other fake ID “Vinny” where hes a 10 year Army Sargent on another classified secret mission that he can’t talk about.

    There you go loser, “one on one” only I backed up my posts with facts and your own words as proof. Why don’t you have the balls to admit to your lies, tuck your head up your A$$, take your bigotry and hate and Phony Soldier ID and leave us honest people alone?

    Once again, Here you are caught in your lies. These are your words verbatim:

    strtlk said: on Hollywood elites want to be taxed more 09/24/11 07:51 PM

    “1. No idea where Bangor, WA is. I thought Bangor was in Maine!
    2. What the heck is a “Boomer” or SSBN? You know what…I don’t care!
    3. Reminding people that glenn was a dead beat dad is a factual statement about him, not his innocent children. Nice try though slime ball.
    3. Either talk about something relevant and stop this, you are jason bourne crap!”

    Caught in your lies strtlk.

    Thanks for proving me correct.

    Folks, strtlk/mtclayboy has been caught in his lies, He’s a lying sack of crap.

    Sorry Glenn, say what you will about Newt, his record as speaker lines up with the TEA Party perfectly.

    Under speaker Gingrich we had the first balance budget in 4 years with a projected surplus, reform of entitlements and the largest capital gains tax cut.

    We can go back and fourth all day long about the mans shady personal life, but I really don’t think the 53% of Americans who disapprove of this president are going to let what happened in Newts personal life 20 years ago make them forget about the economic despair and intentional destruction. By this president.

    Newt doesn’t fit with the Republican platform of family values, but so what the GOP can wither and die for all I care. The TEA Party which is a strictly fiscal movement, social issues do not ,after in the least bit to the TEA Party movement, so the tea party shouldn’t care about Newts personal life, but the TEA Party should recognize that Newt moved the ball the furthest for the cause of limited government than even Reagan did…. I mean come on, the BB, Welfare reform, he dragged a liberal president kicking and screaming to sign it to boot, I think he knows how to be effective in the face of opposition.

    I used to love Glenn Beck, but when made that statement that the TEA Party is racist if they choose Newt he completely lost me. The TEA Party wants a balanced budget. The TEA Party wants entitlement and spending reform. newt is the only candidate that actually got that done in government.

    Sure his own party wanted him gone after 4 years because the GOP establishment LOVES big government just as much as the democrats. The GOP just wants their members to sound limited government act limited government but not actually limit government for real. This is why newt had to be forced out, he was hurting that gravy train the elite GOP loved so much, and this is why his former “colleagues” are terrified of him getting the nomination, because he might actually make good on the promise of limited government. We all know Romney won’t, in fact soon as elected he will find ways to grow government even more from where Obama took us.

On Dec 29, 2011 alterPaul said “yes I knew about the letters and may have contributed to some of them”. In 2011 alterPaul was voted ‘ear mark king” of congress. In 2011 he voted to end all foreign aid EXCEPT to those islamic thugs in palestine. In 2011 he voted against the transportation of minors to get abortions without their parents knowledge. In 2011 he said the US was responsible for Pearl Harbor attack. He has said for years than Iran is not a threat to the world or US in particular. He has said it is not an issue if Iran gets nukes, they are all talk. He has said of course Iran should have nukes Israel wants to destroy them.

    I value Glenn’s opinion more than anyone else. He has opened my eyes to what is happening in America. People are voting for Newt because of the way he stands out during the debates & they want the President defeated. If Glenn would just come out & give his support to one of the candidates, I think it would make a big difference. He could really help. I understand that as a radio personality, he wants to stay neutral, but if he is so against Newt shouldn’t he support someone? I believe he knows who the Progressives are better than anyone else. We need your help Glenn before this goes too far!!!

    I haven’t been on drugs the last 20 years. I know what I have heard and seen. I have probably heard hundreds of Gingrich interviews and speeches. He has been very consistent.

    Anyone who puts themselves out there that much, for that long, is going to have sound bites of things that can be taken out of context, things that they have changed their minds on, or even things they might have been wrong on.

    That’s called being realistic.

    If you are looking for idealogical purity, you are using the same mind-set as hardened Marxists.

  • Lemmingsrnotusdamnit

    You are voting for a Utopian ideal that is neither realistic, nor possible at this time. Blindly following Utopian ideals to the detriment of the greater good always ends in tragedy if too many people do it.

    Ron Paul has raised legitimate issues and has made a significant impact on the debate about where to go from here. He has made an important contribution.

    But a Ron Paul Presidency would be an absolute failure, if not an utter disaster just from his naive foreign policy beliefs alone.

    I don’t believe people are robots, but apparently you do. Newt has been preaching Conservative Principles for over 30 years, and he has been doing it consistently, and actually got things done when he had the chance.

    Paul has raised valid and important points about domestic and economic policy, but has accomplished zilch.

    Paul has also allied himself with conspiracy nuts and been a champion of Pork Barrel spending, while hypocritically voting against the bills he puts pork into. Give me a break.

    When Sarah Palin was running for VP as a Republican, I joined the Republican Women’s
    League.  First time and last time I ever joined a political party.  When the Republicans put
    her down because she was a rebel who would not kowtow to the Republican Party’s agenda,
    I called the Republican Women’s League and told them to take me off of their list. 
    I will never join another political party and I will remain the Independent I was before
    the 2008 election.
    I am however going to vote Republican this time because I do not like the direction
    that Pres. Obama is taking our country.
    With all the descension in the field of candidates this year I have to make a choice
    on who to vote for.  I was going to vote for Herman Cain but the liberal press once
    again crucified the man and he dropped out.
    Now, I have made the choice to vote for Mitt Romney over Newt Gingrich.  I have
    asked God to help me convey my message to all of you on why I picked Romney.
    I believe I am older than many of you who comment here and remember what
    Newt Gingrich was like as Speaker of the House.  In a nutshell, he was a
    hothead.  He did not have charisma and he did not have a steady as you go
    personality.  The House of Representatives when he was Speaker forced him
    to resign.
    This is how I believe God wanted me to get my message across to all of you.
    On Sunday, January 15, 2012, the headlines in our paper were “Cruise turns
    into night of chaos, terror, death”.  During the course of this past week we
    have read and heard on the news, how Captain Francesco Schettino, captain
    of Luxery Liner Costa Concordia ran aground off of the tiny Tuscan Island of
    Giglio, Italy.  He is now being charged with manslaughter for the murder of
    too many passengers who could not escape the ship.  It is my under-standing
    that the captain risked the lives of all of the passengers because he wanted to
    wave to a waiter on the island.  He disobeyed the rules of vessal safety, was
    arrogant to think he would not have any accident, disobeyed the rules of  his
    employer, Carnival Corp. and than when all of the chaos was going on sup-
    posedly jumped ship with not a care for the passengers.  In future, after all
    of the authorities are finished with their investigation, the truth will be told.
    I do not believe the captain will have any chance of beating his recklessness.

    I believe that Newt Gingrich is like that sea captain.  He will do whatever he
    wants, play to the masses for their handwaving, lull the people into a false
    sense of security, all the while that he seeks power.  If he cannot get along
    with the House of Reps. who made him quit, how in the world will he be
    able to get along with any of our Congressman and for that matter, any of
    the World Leaders out their who will cross him.  He did many things as
    Speaker that I did not like.  Too me he seems to be after unearned
    accolades in his quest for power.  How will he react in a crisis?  Will he
    leave America flying in the wind?  Right now, he is an excellent orator
    but that is not enough for America.  He must stay the course and he
    must have a steady hand when he is captain of AMERICA’S SHIP.

    I hope you all understand what I am trying to say here.   Please do
    some research on Newt Gingrich and find out what kind of politica
    personality he has.  Even if he gets the nomination he will not win
    the election.

    May God Bless You All in your quest for the truth!

  • Lemmingsrnotusdamnit

    Ummmmmm……… He has said who he supports. Rick Santorum.

    He isn’t going to campaign for anyone. But that’s not the same as supporting someone.

    Now, there are some on here who believe that Glenn is supporting Santorum because he knows Santorum won’t win, and he actually wants fellow Mormon Romney to win.

    That’s an interesting theory, and certainly possible if Glenn still has streaks of dishonesty inside himself. I would hope it’s not true, but his rabid, foaming at the mouth and totally unfair and unbalanced lambasting of Gingrich as being no different than Obama has seriously damaged my trust of Beck’s judgement and agenda.

  • Lemmingsrnotusdamnit

    Your point is well taken, that counting the money from the “so called” Social Security trust fund and Medicare as inflows, measured against outflows, is fundamentally flawed, since it is not supposed to be general revenue, but it has been used that way.

    I know Gingrich understands this. But he is using the measure that, unfortunately, has been the standard for over 60 years. The fact that our lazy and corrupt News Media won’t point this out is a big part of the problem.

    I respect your opinion, and appreciate you putting the safety of the country ahead of rigid ideology.

    I would like to point out, though, that Newt is 15 years wiser, and hopefully 15 years more mature. I would also like to point out that the “herding cats” job that the Speaker must perform, is a much different job than the Presidency. Newt’s personality might be much better suited to being President, than being Speaker.

    Just “food for thought”.

    Ron Paul would be fine economically but you cannot have the isolationist theory any more! When the second President Bush was elected he too was an isolationist, then they hit the twin towers.  Any President MUST realize this is not about getting out of these people’s countries and they will leave us alone.  According to Sharia, according to the Koran they CANNOT leave us alone.  We are the infidels that must ne destroyed..all Chrsitians ..all Jews…anyone who will NOT become a Muslim.  If you don’t believe it go into ANY mosque in the US and just listen to what is being said…then come back and say you can live with Ron Pauls international policies..aside from the fact that his writings show he is a racist and anit-semite.  That’s what this country needs now.

    Nice rationalization.

    But the fact is, “Pork” has nothing to do with Cash for Clunkers or any of the other boneheaded programs the government spends money on. The added pork, is just more money that has to be borrowed.

    That’s a fact, and that’s why Paul is a hypocrite playing the game politicians play. If the Paulbots would just look at the facts critically, they would see that the emperor has no clothes.

    It is called being principled. Newt has zero principles. He panders for a vote. It is that simple. He is a do as I say not as I do. That is not the leadership I can support. He has not had the same message for 20 years. He has been a global warming proponent and opponent in almost the same breath. He has been an adulterer while skewering the president for being an adulterer, he has been for the health insurance mandate before this president put it into motion, now he is against it. He was for federal funding of abortion, but now he is against it. If you cannot see the contridictions and the hypocrisy I have to question your drug abstinence claim. Rigid ideology to principles is called being principled. If your principle is just to defeat BO that is fine, you can be lackadaisical on all the other issues and it is of no consequence to you. However if you want a principled leader that is going to take a stand on an issue and guarantee the right vote, or veto on the issues of personal liberties, sound money, and constitutional principles your only choice is Ron Paul. Like I said it is your vote and you can do with it what you wish. I personally believe we are in the shape we are in because of pandering and compromise from our leaders, and I am a bit tired of voting for the status quo. None of our presidents veto anything that really matters to us anymore, they just sign the bill with a signing statement. I want a man that has balls when it comes to NDAA, Patriot act, mandated government health care, SOPA, and the list goes on. Newt may say he is against those specific bills, but I bet he has his own Ideas on how to rape the citizenry of liberties and dollars.

    It`s been my experience that if I`m going to make any decision about a situation that confuses me, my first order of business is to some how become open minded! In this instance i took a step back to get a better pannarammic look at this election!  And try too figure out first which one of these people are going to make my families life and future better? I`m a small business Ownner and like most, Obamama is no where in the picture!!! I`m a Proud Patriot willing too do whatever is nessessarry to defend the Constitution and it`s core tennants, My Family and there future, safety and security! All of which are in eminnate danger! That`s why I believe this election is the most important election of my life! The reason I don`t trust Romney is simple! the only way too tell them apart is their skin color! their both Liberal Elites that have paralel policies that are constantly chipping away at Our Constitution. Santorum claims to be a ” Conservative” but seems to get elected in areas with 80% Democrat Majorities. Has takin more ear marks than anyone in Congress during his stretch in office! ( everybody knows are really Pro-Quo bribes) just like Obamas` ( Solyndra) then there`s Ron Paul. He has never had one bill passed in 32 yr.s in Government! So what did he do? There`s no doubt he is a smart guy, but seems too see the world through a soda straw. Imagine if all police officers stay inside the station and refused to come out unless the crooks came too them! There would be Kaos in the streets! the point i`m trying to make is, None of them are who they appear too be! Except Newt Gingrich ! In the History of the United States when has the Republican Party VOTED A PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL TO BE RONALD REGANS REPUBLICAN SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE?????   I REST MY CASE GLENN BECK!!!!!!

    You are using a simple generalization which doesn’t require a lot of intellectual effort. Life is a lot more complicated than that.

    But in answer to your question, it is certainly possible that 1 or more of them have good intentions. The key, is for the citizens to hold them accountable once they are elected. That has been the failing. And that is why Obama has got to go, even if the replacement has flaws.

  • Jeremy VonLanken

    He votes against the bills time and time again. Do you not realize this? He has already been on record time and time again that he does not believe in the income tax system. He doesn’t think people should be paying income tax, so why wouldn’t he try to get his peoples money back. He doesn’t vote on budgets that are not balanced. It is pure logic. I don’t believe in income tax, so I will try to get my constituents money back, and I don’t believe in budgets that are not balanced so I will vote against an un balanced budget. The only reason we are borrowing money is our cradle to the grave entitlements, Bloated federal regulation of anything and everthing that is clearly not their business as outlayed in article 1 section 8 yet is given to the people or the states. That is why our budget is screwed every year. Congress has the power to borrow so they just figure they will borrow to pay for the ignorance. If it was left to the states, the states that are welfare oriented would go belly up, and the conservative states would prosper. Newt is federalist. I am looking for an anti-federalist.

  • Lemmingsrnotusdamnit

    Let me just address your first two points, which are fundamentally flawed in their assumptions.

    As for Global Warming, lots of people have been fooled. I mean, we were led to believe that the entire scientific community was in agreement. I myself believed it for a while. Does that mean I am a hypocrite? No. I remained open to the developments that occurred and it became obvious that Global Warming was based on flawed science and left wing politics. The same thing happened with Gingrich. So this example is quite weak.

    Your second example is based on a flawed premise and incorrect facts. Gingrich never lambasted Clinton about cheating on his wife. Never, ever. He lambasted him for going into a deposition, being sworn under oath, and then lying. That’s what the impeachment was all about, not the affair. That is a plain and simple fact, my friend. Now Clinton was also rightfully lambasted for standing up in front of the American people and denying outright the affair, which was a lie. But that’s not what he was impeached for.

    Seriously. You are operating under faulty assumptions, incorrect facts, and faulty logic. It happens to people. But that’s how people get duped.

    I am Tea Party!!!

    I wept today not because Rick Santorum lost the S.C. election but for our nation. As I listened to his speech last night, I felt an overwhelming feeling of sadness for our people. I thought how sad our people who call themselves Christians could vote not so much for Newt Gingrich, but against the media and for class warfare. After two debates of Gingrich doing verbal media whipping (Juan Williams and John King) and his implications Romney was the 1%, the people said, “Yes this is what we want”, and gave Newt the victory.

    I know all the arguments and rationale for why some have supported Newt yesterday. I believe if Santorum could not win last night and Romney did, the process most likely would have ended last night in S.C. Santorum now has another chance to speak and for this I praise God. 

    My biggest concern is for a vast amount of Americans who do not seek the truth but are so desperate for a liberator to come and save them from the wicked left Socialists and liberal media. In their desperation, they sell out to human logic and do not seek God and His wisdom. They don’t put faith in God. I was reminded today of 1 Samuel 8: 1-22. No other words could possibly explain better why I weep for our people and for our nation.

    Please listen to Rick Santorum’s speech if not for the first time but again to truly hear his words.

    I agree with you ElPzee.  Glenn Beck’s attitude of absolutes is quite disturbing.  Also there is one major thing that he blantantly overlooks about Newt Gingrich.  That is the FACT that when Newt Gingrich was Speaker the Federal Government shrank, budgets were balances, taxes wer lowered, progressives where put in a corner, regulations were less on small business in the marketplace,  the govenrment actually paid down on the Federal debt, and under Speaker Gingrich, the economy expanded and there was 4% unemployment.  How Glenn Beck sees what he sees that is just the opposite of what Newt ACTUALLY DID does not add up.   It seems to me that Glenn is a Romney plant and really wants RINO Romney in as the GOP nominee over a Conservative that Santorum says is his mentor and where Santorum learned how to be a Conservative.  So, since Santorum praises Newt and says he is the man where he got his Conservatism does that make Rick Santorum a progressive as well.Come on Beck!  YOU have lost it.  But I guess you would not understand that because you are not a Conservative but a radical libertarian.

    SO newt is easily fooled. I am an alternative energy student, and I haven’t made up my mind yet on the cause of global warming, yet I am not on the tv agreeing with it or disagreeing with it. The underlying principle was the act of the affair. Without the affair you don’t have the perjury. Newt has been blinded by his “passion for his country” many times. His “passion” causes him to do unethical and foolish things. That is his and your arguement. Wow. Just wow. Too bad that isn’t how it worked when I was a soldier. I could have robbed banks and had 100 wives, because it was obvious I was passionate enough about my country to fight for it. What logic. Newt has no moral compass, and no principle compass. He is a federalist. He is unethical, he is a flip flopper, and he is hypocritical.

    It’s clear you’re very bitter at Newt and can’t handle the fact you can’t control people that believe in the same kind of forgiveness that God gave you once upon a time. Both you and Newt have grown and learned more and better ideas, and there is no reason to think that you or he will stop just as we all should keep on learning from the past. You maybe should check Mitts.past views on many issues to prove my point ! When Newt speaks we just want to hear more, quite unlike the others who can’t seem to get to a point or make one most of the time.

    I haven’t cherry picked anything from newt or pulled him out of context. Newt is in support of TARP, Paul voted against it. Newt supports an individual mandate, no matter how he craftly words it, paul is against it. Paul voted for for no new debt ceiling increases. Newt was in support of the mexican bailout of 1995. Do you understand now? He is not a conservative. There is nothing conservative about any of those measures. The balanced budget of the 90′s relied on unpresedented growth and some of the problems we are facing today, like freddie mac that gingrich is in bed with

    Now we can debate debate that the constitution is an outdated piece of paper, and socialist government companies are a good thing, but that isn’t the case. The case is that if you don’t oppose something or you work to make money from things you do not agree with is just flip flopping, and pandering. Does newt flip flop-YES. Is he a hypocrite-YES. Is he an adulterer-YES. Is he a LIAR-YES. Is he a panderer-YES

    In essence Paul understands the economic cycle better than anyone, (housing bubble predicted in 2001) while newt was actively working to make sure the housing bubble happened(strategist for GSE freddie/fannie) It goes back to principle. Newt is no conservative.

  • Lemmingsrnotusdamnit

    Jeremy. A lot of people were for TARP at the time because we were told the economy could completely collapse in a matter of days.. Glenn Beck was for TARP at first, then changed his mind. Being for TARP at the time, is hardly a litmus test of whether you are a conservative.

    Newt clearly stated that he now believes the Individual Mandate was a mistake, and regrets supporting it. Whatever the reason he changed his mind, I see little reason to fear he would not do everything to kill ObamaCare and not support Individual Mandates in the future.

    As far as Fannie and Freddie, it has been a Conservative Mantra for many years to encourage Home Ownership to create an ownership society. Newt was no different than a lot of Conservatives. In retrospect, it’s now obvious that it is wrong-headed to encourage home ownership for everyone. Many people are better off renting so they can be mobile and move to where the jobs are.

    We have the same issue with encouraging college for all, which I hope more and more people are starting to realize is wrong headed and wasteful and simply finances the leftist intelligentsia at the Universities.

    Has Paul always been against this stuff? Yes. I previously credited Paul with having the correct long-term thinking on these issues and I believe he has had a positive influence in convincing other politicians, including Newt, that he was right. People are coming around. There is no denying it. If average people can be convinced, why can’t some politicians as well?

    Of course, being right on some things, doesn’t make you right on everything. Paul’s foreign policy beliefs are beyond naive and very dangerous. His constant associations with conspiracy kooks and sympathy with 911 Truthers (I’ve seen it on video – don’t deny it)is a disturbing trend in his personality.

    I really don’t want someone that paranoid and ideologically inflexible to be sitting in the White House. But hey, I would even vote for him, over Obama. But he has no chance. That’s the reality. And I deal with reality.

    I am a prior service infantryman and I guarantee if someone was camped on my country, with or without the help of my government I would be a brutal unmerciful fighter against the foreign occupiers. If the occupying country did not consider me a terrorist I would feel like I did not do my job. I am by no means defending the radical muslims, as I really don’t care much for them myself, after all I signed on the dotted line, and took the oath after september 11th, served my tours, and had no problem doing so. However we need to think about the things we are involving ourselves in and exposing ourselves to.

    He is on house foreign and domestic committees

    United States House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology

    United States House Financial Services Subcommittee on International Monetary Policy and Trade

    United States House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

    Now Paul was a service member as well, and I would trust a fellow service members policies on war before I would trust someone that did not serve. People that have seen the damage EFP’s, IED’s and weapons in general can do generally don’t know squat about foreign wars, or the heart of a warrior or the effects of occupation. I fought OIF, and I personally would be a terrorist if someone was here. I would not let up, I would make sure they lost legs, arms, faces, had extensive burns, etc. If anyone occupied my country, I would make sure I tried at any cost to inflict damage on their homeland, hopefully scoring victories on high level officers families. That is who I would be if some foreign entities military was on my countries soil. But that is probably where we differ on foreign policy.

    When it comes to foreign policy, including the specific points you’ve made – Paul didn’t predict the future. Paul repeats the same isolationist dialogue that has been promoted by isolationists in this country since the turn of the 19th century. Look at newspaper articles from the early 1900s. Paul says many of the same things isolationists said back then. It’s not different.

    Understand – I’m not anti-isolationist. I don’t agree with isolationism to the extreme that Paul does, but I do lean toward keeping our forces to home, not engaging in every little conflict that comes along, and I’m most definitely against nation building. However, Paul is flat wrong about Islam itself, and the motives behind militant Muslims. THAT is indisputable. He has, on numerous occasions, made statements regarding anti-American Islamic groups that were flat out falsehoods. On top of that, he seems to have no knowledge at all of the history of Islam or even the history of the United Stated dealing with Muslim nations.

    There is no candidate that is more right-headed on domestic policy than Paul. I will vote for Paul if he is the candidate of choice vs. Obama. However, my willingness to vote for him, my respect for his integrity on domestic issues, and my appreciation for his understanding of economics do not cloud my ability to view him with scrutiny, as I do all candidates. And when I scrutinize his foreign policy he is found wanting – VERY MUCH.

    Every candidate presents a basket of ideas – and in every candidates basket is a mix of valuables and crap. Paul has a lot of valuables in his basket. If you want to sell Paul, sell Paul on those things. However, don’t try to sell Paul’s crap as if it was pearls.

    On other big news today, the EU oil embargo against Iran will create a global energy crisis.  Our lives will change dramatically because of a spike in oil prices.

    Still waiting for you to name a person that ran in a third party that actually won a Presidential election while running for a third party.

    FYI: You cannot do it, Teddy Roosevelt did the best when he ran in the Bull Moose Party, getting 27.4% of the popular vote and 88 electoral votes. That is the best third party performance.

    Since it allowed for the Election of Obama, not really well until November.

    I’m on to the next Newt thread. Old threads don’t interest me because few read them.

    PLEASE do the research on Ron Paul. I was a Tea Partier and a Bill
    O’Reilly and Glenn Beck fan before noticing Ron Paul. He is exactly what
    the Tea Party movement is all about. No other candidate is for smaller
    government, no other candidate stands by the Constitution the way he
    does. I am a fiscal and social conservative however I feel that our
    nation’s debt and economic crisis must be met before anything else. Ron
    Paul is the one to do this. His foreign policy may fear some people and
    it should evoke such a reaction when there is so much hate and violence
    in the world, but we are going broke and we do not have the resources to
    police the world anymore. We need to defend our nation first and
    foremost. If you want another Obama, vote for Romney vote for Newt and
    even Santorum, the social conservative all for BIG government. Ron Paul
    is the true conservative and true Republican. Just take a half an hour
    of your time and look up Ron Paul on Youtube to get some interviews of
    his and make sure you know the truth and him. He is about freedom and
    liberty.

    So the reason Ron Paul’s clothes don’t fit is because it’s not in the Constitution?

    Newt and Santorum failed to get on the ballot in severl states,  losing 550 delegates, they have 0 chance of getting the 1154 required, Ron Paul has been doing good with delegates, see you at the convention in August

    I’ve loved you Glenn since I first day I discovered you on CNN but I’ve been a Newt fan since he was our awesome Speaker and accomplished what most said was impossible. Your vetting argument would be stronger against Newt if you could attack Newt’s Signature legislation, policy or procedures. I’m not talking about the go along to get along got-ya moments all effective politicians have on their resume. I’m talking about the Newt Gingrich SIGNATURE issues that he pushed and passed. In my opinion, what a man does far out weighs what a man says, that’s why you Glenn have been forgiven for some of the thing that have come out of your mouth over the years.

    SandyLester; so you are implying that the President does not need Congressional approval to declare war legally? How so?

  • w. Parker

    Hey, you ignorant jackass, i have fought in war before, how about you?  You are as pathetic as your stupid screen name.. an immature, know-it-all brainwashed paulbot.  you are a punk and coward.  What are you going to do about it?? 

  • w. Parker

    Waste your vote then.  You Paulbots just don’t get it and everyone of you have the same scripted statements as if ya’ll are all on some spell.  If i disagree with you, then I”m in with Chris Mathews?  Come one, can you come with something better than that stupid statement??   

  • w. Parker

    Heard of the War Powers Act?  It’s legal

  • w. Parker

    Exactly, and what did Eisenhower do – let the Russians take Berlin, just at master Paulbot is letting Iran have the nuke

  • w. Parker

    You said you are in the military?  Why did you join if you support R Paul and agree with his policies?  For the money?  What would you do if you were sent into Iran to destroy the Nuke facility – disobey orders?  Are you not a conscientious objector in disguise?  or do you speak out of both sides of your mouth, doing one thing but saying another?  i am all for the military and the troops as i was one once, but if you are not in for the right reason, believing you are furthering america’s best interest, aren’t you putting fellow servicemen at risk?  would you obey orders if asked to defend S Korea, isreal, england, etc?  If you would, wouldn’t that conflict with your beliefs toward r paul? 

  • w. Parker

    What makes no sense are “Conscientious Objectors” as yourself…You are in the military but believe in R Paul’s policies?  You are a detrement and dangerous to others in uniform.  Knowing you could or would be sent into a war zone (one which you disagree with), why did you join?  Doesn’t all R Paul supporters disagree with our involvement in any war outside american borders?  What would you do if you were asked to fight in S Korea, europe, elsewhere in the middle east?  you also speak as if you have access to CIA classified documents that explain the thoughts of people of the entire country of Pakistan.  Or, have you polled everyone there.  You claim to be so informed, have you dismissed the possibility of an iranian nuke being smuggled into america, or do you have info that that is an impossibility…I support our military as i was a war veteran but you seem to be in conflict with your own ideology as to be a serviceman and R Paul supporter.  i would not feel comfortable sharing the same foxhole with someone who didn’t feel he was right being there in the first place.  aren’t all R Paul supports in the military basically conscientious objectors in uniform??????
