Lies cause great pain

We say the truth lives here, but what does that even mean?  Where does the truth really live?  That’s all that matters is truth.  When all is said and done, everything, everything that is outside of truth will be swept away, and everything that is truth will stand.  That’s it.

So when you see all the news and all the lies, I know it’s hard, but we really shouldn’t get even angry, because the lies are great teachers, and it won’t last.  Today, this morning, I got up, and I read the story on TheBlaze about the jobs numbers.  Just before the 2012 election, they now say oh, it looks like those were fabricated.  Really?

Unemployment dipped below 8%.  All indicators for the economy pointed to bad news, and I remember we talked about it – that’s not true.  That’s not possible.  How did that happen?  There are some other things you know to know about when it comes to truth.  Last night in a phone conference, the president said 100 million Americans had signed up at Healthcare.gov in the first month.  Listen.

VIDEO

President Obama:  In the first month alone, we’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans.

Okay, not true, and it wouldn’t have been like 100,000 people.  The actual number is 26,000.  Where did that number come from?  The press isn’t too upset.  The just say he flubbed.  Did he?  So far, there’s no effort by the White House to correct the so-called mistake, so he can just say it, and everybody just says oh well, he just flubbed.

Last month there was another flub.  The president read a letter from a 48-year-old single mom, and he held her up as an ObamaCare success story but apparently not so much.  She’s saying that she received a letter of her own.  It was from the state exchange, notifying her that her tax credit was reduced.  A few days later, another letter came, said her tax credit was completely taken away, so now she can’t afford health care and health insurance at all.

Predictably over the coming weeks, the spin masters are going to try to find ways to explain things away or get you to lose, you know, attention, whatever.  I want you to remember one thing.  It’s really straightforward, and it’s not just to you and me but a lot of people.  They’re beginning to realize they’re not being told the truth.  But I’d like to change that.

It’s not that you haven’t been told the truth.  You are being lied to.  And I want you to ask your friends and neighbors if we use the same ethics in parenting as we do in politics, would everybody be okay?  I mean, you catch your kid lying.  Would it be okay for somebody to say, “Oh, did you just make a little flub?  Oh, you don’t need to correct that.  Did you just misspeak?”

I have never, ever asked my kids if they have misspoken.  “Did you misspeak?  Was that a misspeak?  Was that a flub?”  I always say, “Did you lie to me?  Did you lie to your mother?”  Why?  Because we know that lying is wrong.  Why is it wrong?  We teach our kids you have to own up to whatever it is you did.  Don’t ever lie.  Why?  Because it makes a difference.  Why?  Because lying makes everything 100 times worse, and you have no trust in the family.  You have no trust of everybody if you start to lie.

That’s why we put such an emphasis on truth, because we know lying leads to another lie and another lie, and it all causes pain, pain to the person on the receiving end and ultimately sooner or later even greater pain to the one dishing out the lies and everyone along the line.  But what defeats lie?  Truth, the truth sets you free.  It’s the most powerful weapon you have.  Empower the truth.

Play your cards face up on the table, and you’ll be able to stand with courage.  Keep things hidden, and you will cower in constant fear of being exposed.  How many of us don’t actually believe, you know, we can do anything great because we believe the lie that maybe this is as good as it gets, maybe that’s the best I can do?  It’s a lie.  It’s a lie.  Lies hold us hostage.  Lies keep us enslaved.  Lies tear us apart.

We have been lied to about almost everything by both sides.  America, you don’t even know who you are.  I didn’t.  I didn’t.  I wrote this book, Miracles and Massacres, and when I say I, it’s the collective I.  I picked all the stories.  I found the stories with my team, and then we wrote it together, because it’s 12 stories.

We spent a lot of time researching these 12 stories to make sure that it’s all right, and you will see that it has the, you know, it has all that you need here, all of the footnotes and everything else so you can see where we got it because miracles and massacres, that’s what this country is, miracles and massacres.

You have to know the worst of our country and the best.  What can you possibly learn from the worst of America?  How is it possibly relevant to today?  Well, if I said what day did Pearl Harbor happen, you’d say December 7, 1941, a date which would live in infamy.  Great, that’s a speech, but tell me about the ramifications of Pearl Harbor and how does the war with Japan relate to any news happening today?  I’ll show you.

I want to tell you about a 25-year-old daughter of a Japanese American immigrant.  She had set sail for her homeland of Japan.  She was born here, but she was going to go see a sick relative.  Well, then December 7, 1941 happened, and now she was trapped there, because the war happened, and we’re not going to bring in people from Japan, especially while we’re putting people up in internment camps.  We’re not going to bring this, you know, 20-something back into the United States.

She was steadfast in her patriotism.  She loved the country.  She declared at one point, “A tiger doesn’t change its stripes.”  Now, who did she declare that to?  The Japanese government, because the Japanese government told her she had to renounce her American citizenship, and she said a tiger does not change its stripes.

Well, she took a typing job.  She was actually friendly with the American POWs, and she had access to them.  And it came out later that she had smuggled food and medicine to the POWs.  She eventually found work as a typist to make ends meet while she was on the outs, and she ended up at a place called Radio Tokyo.

She was first recruited by Australian POW Major Charles Cousins, and he said you should be a host.  It wasn’t a huge role.  There were 20 minutes here and there.  The Japanese had wanted her to broadcast American propaganda and use the POWs to do it to demoralize American troops, but she said no, she wouldn’t do it.

She actually devised a plan of sending messages to our troops to help our troops.  The Japanese didn’t catch her.  Her stage name was Ann, and it was just short for announcer, but everybody knows her by the nickname Tokyo Rose, Tokyo Rose.  That’s what she use on the air, and after the war ended, she was anxious to come back home.  She was really excited to not only come back home but to tell the story.

A reporter reached out to her, promising her $2,000 for an interview to tell her story.  Well, she wanted to go home.  Two thousand dollars, she didn’t have the money to go home, and that was it.  It was her ticket home.  So she agreed to the interview because after all, she’s an American citizen.  She told her story.  She said the POWs and me, we didn’t go along with the Japanese propaganda plan.  She was proud of it.  She left the interview thinking this is going to be great, but when the story publication was released, she realized she had been lied to.

It was titled “Traitor’s Pay:  Tokyo Rose got 100 Yen a Month…$6.60.”  As soon as that happened, there was a knock on her door from three officers and a master sergeant from the Army Counterintelligence Corps.  She was under arrest.  She was deemed a traitor to her country.  A traitor?  There was evidence.  The POWs knew, right?

It didn’t stop anybody.  The prosecution plowed forward.  It was the most expensive trial in the United States history up until that time, and why was it so expensive?  Because they had to bribe people and get them to shut up.  She was sentenced to ten years in prison.  She served six years of a ten-year sentence before the witnesses, the POWs, began to admit they were lying during the trial, and this was wrong.

But the damage was already done.  You know Tokyo Rose.  Tokyo Rose was a traitor, right?  You know that.  We all know that.  While she was in prison and torn away from her family, her mother died in a Japanese internment camp.  She had her country stolen from her, both her homeland and her home of America, both of them.  She wasn’t wanted in any place, and it all started with a lie and furthered by lies on top of lies.

How did she possibly go to prison?  Why?  Why did they do that to her?  Well, because the press thought it was a good story.  It was a great story.  Everybody knows Tokyo Rose.  We’re going to get that story, and they already had it written before they ever met her.  And the administration needed good headlines.  There was an election, so putting her behind bars, getting the real bad Tokyo Rose, that worked.

The two groups separately or together, I’m not really sure, they just decided it’s okay to destroy somebody’s life because they knew the truth anyway, and the truth, you know, doesn’t really matter.  The ends justify the means.  So why did I put that story in this book, and how is that relevant to today?  Well, let me show you.  If you know history, you know that it repeats itself.

Do you remember the unemployment story right before the election, just talked about it with Jack Welch?  This is what happened.  Jack Welch, when he saw those numbers, he tweeted this.  He said, “Unbelievable jobs numbers…these Chicago guys will do anything…can’t debate so change numbers.”  He explained his position in an interview.  Listen.

VIDEO

Jack Welch:  Chris, these numbers are all a series of assumptions, tons of assumptions, and it just seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election, the numbers go 1/10 of a point below where they were when the president started, although I don’t see anything in the economy that says these surges are true.

As it turns out, they weren’t.  People dog piled.  People in the press, they called him a crazy old man, an unemployment rate truther, an insane crabby lesbian, and then they labeled him finally Conspiracy Jack.  So you know, Jack Welch is one of the most respected men, one of the most respected businessman in American history.  But not anymore.

Just like Tokyo Rose, where does Tokyo Rose go?  Where did Jack Welch go to get his reputation back?  Where does he go?  You see, the media, those people in power, the administration and the media, feel it’s okay.  You can destroy a man’s reputation because it serves a purpose just like Tokyo Rose.

Maybe years from now Jack Welch will be long dead, and nobody will really remember who he was.  And maybe a president of the day will recognize him and say hey, you know, he was right about that, but don’t hold your breath.  It wasn’t until 1976 that Gerald Ford recognized Tokyo Rose and pardoned her, but everybody still thinks of Tokyo Rose as a traitor.

This, this is her microphone that was used to help the Americans and to warn them.  This was taken by somebody who tried to burn Radio Tokyo down.  See, there were five Tokyo Roses, but the one that went to prison was on our side.  History tells a truth.

Today is the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.  President couldn’t show up, and when he did, Ken Burns is now saying that he specifically asked him to drop the “under God” out from the address.  Maybe he did.  Maybe he didn’t.  I don’t know.  I would’ve never accused him of lying, but I don’t know what the truth is anymore.

Lincoln spoke these words.  This is the Gettysburg Address, spoke these words on these two pieces of paper.  This is a very old copy, by the way, obviously not the real Gettysburg Address.  But he spoke these words.  That’s it.  At a time when America was at its breaking point, America literally hung in the balance, they didn’t know what was true.

He united the country by reaffirming America’s virtues and her commitment to the idea that all men are created equal, that we now here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that governments of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.  Lincoln spoke the truth.

Today, we’re lied to.  He died because of that truth.  This is a piece of his bed sheet, and you can see the faded bloodstains here as they took the bed sheet and actually pushed it into his skull trying to stop the bleeding.  People die for the truth, so why don’t we value the truth anymore?  Why don’t people just give you the truth?  Why don’t you say the truth no matter how ugly or scary it is?

Because people are afraid or they don’t have the spine to deal with the problem.  They don’t have the spine to tell their kids you can’t sing.  They don’t know what to do, and so they kick the can down the road.  And some people do it because they can get what they want.  I’ll get free healthcare, doesn’t matter.  We’ll have a nice jobs report.  It doesn’t matter and crush Jack Welch.

Progressives lie because they are taught the ends justify the means.  Hey, ObamaCare is going to be great.  We’ve been trying to get it the right way.  We’ve been trying to convince people.  We can’t convince people.  It’s okay to lie.  You’re going to have to pass it to see what’s in it.  And people are stupid enough to buy it.

Prosecuting Tokyo Rose, it will make America feel good.  It doesn’t matter.  Okay, it’s one person, but it will make the collective feel good.  If we just lie on this one jobs report, we’ll get reelected, and we’ll be able to help people.  The ends justify the means.  This is the book that teaches this.  This is the book that the president taught when he was in college.  They say he was a constitutional scholar, my hat.  He taught this.

This is Saul Alinsky.  This is a copy that was signed by Saul Alinsky.  This is a copy I want to show you right here, the dedication page.  By the way, there’s a reason people don’t use fountain pens anymore, as you can see right here, although it has been freaking people out as I’ve been saying that that’s the sheet from Lincoln all day.

But here he says, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical, from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”

I’m sorry, Lucifer is the father of all lies, so if you know that, and you’re still doing this, I know who your father is.  The truth shall set you free, and you know, that’s not actually what was said.  I mean, that’s part of it, but that’s not the entire phrase, the truth shall set you free.  That’s only part of it.

The first part of that line is you will know the truth.  You will know the truth, and everybody does.  Everybody does.  You just have to stop and think about it.  You will know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  When that was first uttered, the guys standing around the guy who said that said we’re are not slaves.  We came from Abraham, and we were freed by Moses.  What are you even talking about?

Anybody who lies, cheats, steals, tell this to your children.  I know you already do.  Anyone who hurts someone else is a slave.  We already fought to set men free, died to set men free.  One died to make men holy.  Only the truth works.  Only goodness prevails.  In the end, it does.  Jesus said I just do what I’ve seen my father do, and that’s how you will know me.  And I know you because I know who your father is.  I know you’re only doing what you’ve seen your father do.

It is the choice between good and evil, and it all starts with the simple truth.  It all starts with just doing the right thing.  So the job numbers came out, and they sucked, oh well, that’s the way it is.  There was the lie, the job numbers is down, and then they had to pile another one on, and they destroyed a man.

Don’t be a part of that at all, ever, ever, ever, ever.  Let the chips fall where they may.  The right path is here.  Choose the right path.  The time to choose it is now.  And only the truth leads to freedom.

    Truth does matter…

    Truth in and of itself is a fire, in all that is false, lies, spin, distortion, fabrications and more are eventually consumed in full measure.

    Truth reveals truth, for it has no agenda, and in its presence it comforts, and it can protect. For once you know the truth of the ground beneath your feet, you can stand solid and unmovable.

    In the end, the great controversy is the spiritual warfare between God and Lucifer, and between truth and lies.

    What frightens me is that those following Alinsky actually believe Lucifer’s ways are right and good. How terrible.

    Does this mean Glenn will stop lying about the natural born citizen clause and promoting the known revisionist David Barton?

    Then of course there is Glenn’s own recent revisionism of a Hindu named Gandhi, who Beck claims based his life on Jesus Christ. If that were true, Gandhi would have been a Christian and not a Hindu.

    We now know not to ask if Glenn just “misspoke”, so I will ask Glenn Beck what he asks his own kids. Glenn, did you lie or are you just incapable of determining the truth?

  • John Scott

    Government is not about truth. Its about power and control. Obama is just another casualty of that. Although he has grown to understand that a lie is simply a means to what he thinks is right. Is it not easier to tell the truth. Then to lie and have to explain why when you are found out?

    I commend Glen for his strong beliefs. Are some of them fair game for debate? Yes.
    He makes a lo of sense and I give him credit for his compassion and his beliefs.

    Thank you Glenn for telling the truth!!! And for standing by and for what’s right!!! I wish there was more people like you willing to take up that cross and take a stand for God and country!

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    I’m not disputing what Glenn said about lying and telling the truth. I am just pointing out that Beck doesn’t follow his own advice and continues spreading his own lies and propaganda.

    Why does he do that if, “lying makes everything 100 times worse, and you have no trust in the family”?

  • Anonymous

    People don’t really want truth, Glenn doesn’t want truth, we all want stories that cast us as the heroes. Here’s a truth for glenn, statistically speaking, the odds of any of the numerous world religious being exactly true is nearly zero. The odds that this one version of truth is somehow Mormonism, is.. to say the least, impossible. Does this matter to Glenn? No, because truth, as always, is a weapon to wield against others and never on ourselves.

    I caution those who will argue here about those who lie and those who merely misspeak.
    A lie is a deliberate and intentional deception of fact. A mistake or “misspeak” is an accidental and unintentional presentation of information as fact.
    Be mindful of your accusations, especially when judging someone to be something of which you have no absolute proof.
    After all, it takes one to know one.
    Right? You know who you are!

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    Then who are you referring to then if not Glenn Beck who sets the standard at his site?

    Maybe you only read the comments and not the article itself. Glenn Beck said:

    “I mean, you catch your kid lying. Would it be okay for somebody to say, “Oh, did you just make a little flub? Oh, you don’t need to correct that. Did you just misspeak?””

    “I have never, ever asked my kids if they have misspoken. “Did you
    misspeak? Was that a misspeak? Was that a flub?” I always say, “Did you lie to me? Did you lie to your mother?” Why? Because we know that lying is wrong. Why is it wrong? We teach our kids you have to own up to whatever it is you did. Don’t ever lie. Why? Because it makes a difference. Why? Because lying makes everything 100 times worse, and you have no trust in the family. You have no trust of everybody if you start to lie.”

    No. Those following Alinsky know what they are doing. The real ones to fear are the people who believe the leaders and the media. After all, how did all those Americans believe the media story about Tokyo Rose? It was the MEDIA who propagated the lie and the sheeple believed it all.

    this entire speech im thinking of my brother in law and sister who are liberals…. who, i will listen to every spout of information from any source they want me to hear… and i see this. and i worry, because they are family, and i say to myself.. how can anyone disagree with this? my fear lies with them chalking it up as ‘glenn becks a cook!’ because i truely believe that liberals, no matter how educated or uneducated, will always dismiss the opposer for they are too proud to admit they may be wrong

    Okay, I looked it up to get it right for you all.

    Sane sicut lux se ipsam et tenebras manifestat, sic veritas norma sui et falsi est, (Latin). A dictum of Spinoza (1632-1677). Translation: “Indeed, just as light defines itself and darkness, so truth sets the standard for itself and falsity.”

    There.

    Well, blue tail gadfly, just what are some of Glenn’s lies, in your eyes? Anything that is contrary to the progressive line of manufactured “facts”? So far, all we see from you and your ilk are disparaging comments but no factual refutation. Strawman much? Just what would you have him say? Could you say it yourself, for us to be enlightened thereby?

    The TRUTH does not always live here in Beckville. On many occasions, Glenn has drawn erroneous conclusions and has made false accusations against others. One recent example comes to mind; last April, Glenn falsely accused Abdulrahman Alharbi of being involved in the terrorist strike at the Boston Marathon. Even after everyone else in both the media and law enforcement sorted this tragedy out and realized Alharbi was just an innocent victim who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, Glenn persisted with his irresponsible accusations, which resulted in a young student receiving thousands of death threats, so much so that when he was released from the hospital, he was unable to return to his apartment and instead had to be secreted away to a safe house by the Saudi Embassy. Yes Glenn, lies do harm people.

    Glenn’s lies:

    1. He passed off the investigative reporting of Breitbart contributor Many Nagy as his own work.

    2. Beck proclaimed that blood would be running in the streets of every US city during the summer of 2012, meaning riots and mass civil unrest. that scenario never happened.

    3. Beck urged people to buy over-priced old French gold coins from Goldline, saying that they were a wise investment. He did it. It’s a fact and it’s also a fact that the coins were a very bad investment. Look it up.

    4. Beck made claims last April that Obama was cooperating with the Saudis to hide a terrorist responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing. His paranoid ideas were completely false and Beck never bothered to set the record straight. Instead he clung to his nonsense and tried to stir up more trouble and hatred in early August by inflaming his audience with a story about the Saudi student visiting the White House. Problem is, Obama had invited all the people injured in the blasts to visit, which included the Saudi student.

    5. Also last spring, Beck claimed that our nation was going to be shaken to its very foundation by some big event happening in our government. POOF! Nothing happened there either.

    6. For years, Beck has been telling his listeners that the Biblical end times are here and they will see “THE ARM OF GOD” IN THEIR LIFETIMES. Again, a completely false statement based on his hysterical imagination and belief in his questionable LDS religion.

    And the list goers on and on. Beck has a history of selling falsehoods, fear, doom and gloom. Lies are lies. Whn Beck makes these emotional, highly charged statements and then they turn out to be false, it proves that the “TRUTH” is not living anywhere near Beckville. This video sums Beck’s MO up very well.

    Excellent! You are doing what Glenn advises us all to do, to check things out for ourselves, not even taking him at face value.

    However, he doesn’t put a timetable on his prognostications, but issues them as warnings to be looked at, evaluated for ourselves, and acted on if necessary for ourselves.

    I also happen to think, along with Glenn, that yes, we will have “end times” problems, but again, no timetable. The Father tells us in scripture that no one knows, not even the Son, evidently, when the “end times” will occur, so yes, it could well be in our lifetimes. Is your “lifetime” over yet? No? Well then, keep looking, it may well come sooner than you think. And I will say this, for you personally, and all of us, it comes for us individually when we DO die, and stand in His presence. That is our personal “end times.” (By definition.)

    One thing I have been wanting to comment on, in an appropriate place, is the negative comments about his advertisers, such as Goldline. If you will read the ad copy, there is a key word — “portfolio.” If you have enough money to have a “portfolio” of investments, then yes, gold is an excellent investment item to consider, and any investor has the smarts to check it out for himself if it would enhance his ‘portfolio.” For the rest of us po’ people, without that much money to invest, having no “portfolio” to enhance, gold is out of our league. So, ignore that commercial. We make such judgements for ourselves all the time with all the ads we are bombarded with, so no big deal.

    As to your point 5, have you been keeping up with the news? Many things happening, maybe medium-size, but pointing to bigger things, if not taken care of. What and when, we shall see. Again, develop your own timetable, and see how it all plays out.

    Best advice, just keep your eyes open, and your head above water. (Keep researching, too. You are doing well!)

Well then, keep looking, it may well come sooner than you think. And I will say this, for you personally, and all of us, it comes for us individually when we DO die, and stand in His presence. That is our personal “end times.” (By definition.)

    One thing I have been wanting to comment on, in an appropriate place, is the negative comments about his advertisers, such as Goldline. If you will read the ad copy, there is a key word — “portfolio.” If you have enough money to have a “portfolio” of investments, then yes, gold is an excellent investment item to consider, and any investor has the smarts to check it out for himself if it would enhance his ‘portfolio.” For the rest of us po’ people, without that much money to invest, having no “portfolio” to enhance, gold is out of our league. So, ignore that commercial. We make such judgements for ourselves all the time with all the ads we are bombarded with, so no big deal.

    As to your point 5, have you been keeping up with the news? Many things happening, maybe medium-size, but pointing to bigger things, if not taken care of. What and when, we shall see. Again, develop your own timetable, and see how it all plays out.

    Best advice, just keep your eyes open, and your head above water. (Keep researching, too. You are doing well!)

    Beck’s silly little disclaimers do not excuse the hours and hours of time he spends agitating his audience and misleading people with his erroneous conclusions. You can try to spin it but the truth remains – Beck is not an honest man. He’s using religion and patriotism to lure you people in and then he milks you for money. And you’re also way off base with your religious pronouncements, which have no evidence to support them. The long dead ancient young men who dreamed all of that nonsense up knew less about the world than an average 10 year old does now. Your delusions are not the burdens of others.

    Reagan lied about selling weapons to the Iranians. Bush lied about WMDs. Yet not one peep out of wing nuts.

    Hey Glenn ! Talk about lies…. has the nuclear cat got your forked tongue ? Why have we heard nothing from you regarding the upcomming nuclear war with Iran ??

    The first preliminary nuclear deal the six world powers (US, Russia, China, UK, France and German) signed with Iran before dawn Sunday, Nov. 24, at the end of a four-day marathon, failed to address the most questionable aspects of Iran’s nuclear program, i.e. its clandestine military dimensions. The accord confined itself to aspects of uranium enrichment and stockpiles. UN inspections were expanded – but not applied, for instance, to Iran’s concealed nuclear sites – or even the Parchin military base where Iran is suspected of having tested nuclear-related explosions.

    Israel, the Gulf States and others are therefore highly dubious of the deal’s capacity for freezing Iran’s nuclear program where it stands today, least of all roll it back, as President Barack Obama claimed.

    DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources list seven of the most glaring loopholes in the first-step accord:
    1. Parchin: This long-suspected facility remains out of UN oversight. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry boasted after the signing that daily IAEA inspections will take place at Fordo and Natanz. However, cameras are already fixed at both those facilities without an agreement, whereas Tehran’s consistent denial of IAEA access to Parchin is not addrfessed.

    2. Secret nuclear locations: Under the heading “Possible Military Dimensions,” the last IAEA report noted: “Since 2002, the Agency has become increasingly concerned about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed nuclear related organizations, including activities related to the development of a payload for a missile.”

    The watchdog has received information indicating activities “relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device.” This was further corroborated by new information obtained since November 2011.

    Tehran’s non-cooperation for investigating these findings is not mentioned in the Geneva interim accord, nor was it addressed in the negotiations.

    3. Dirty bombs: Iran doesn’t need a full-scale nuclear bomb or missile warhead for attacking Israel. For decades, Tehran has been working on perfecting hundreds of dirty bombs as part of its nuclear program, by adding plutonium or enriched uranium to conventional bombs. These weapons are easy to make and easy to use. In the hands of Hizballah or other Shiite terrorist organizations in Syria or Iraq, for instance, they could be used to strike Israel without leaving a trail to Tehran.
    This peril too was ignored by the six powers in Geneva.
    4. Rollback. While President Obama has presented the deal as a first step toward freezing or even rolling back “key aspects” of Iran’s nuclear program. The fact remains that, so long as Iran is permitted to enrich uranium, even though this is restricted to a low 5 percent grade, it is free to produce as much fissile material as it wants, whenever it wants. This seems more like roll forward than roll back.

    5. Enrichment. Obama and Kerry said the new deal does not recognize Iran’s right to enrich uranium. They were contradicted by the Iranian president and senior negotiator as well as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. So what is the truth? If Iran won recognition for this right, it blows the bottom out of the Non-Proliferating Treaty because, in no time, all the signatories may start enriching uranium with permission from the big powers. Neither is there any point in making Iran join the NPT’s Additional Protocol for snap inspections.

    6. Centrifuges. Iran has undertaken not to add new centrifuges to its enrichment facilities, according to President Obama, but there is nothing to stop it from keeping up their production. In the six-month interregnum for negotiating a comprehensive nuclear deal, Tehran wins time to turn out enough centrifuges to substantially expand its production of enriched uranium.

    9. A leap to breakout: Far from being static or in freeze, as the Americans claim, Iran is free to step up centrifuge production and boost its stock of 3.5 percent enriched uranium, thereby accumulating enough material to enhance its capacity for producing enough weapons-grade uranium to break through to a nuclear bomb rapidly enough to defy detection by the IAEA or Western intelligence until it is too late.

    The first loophole appeared hours after the new accord was signed:
    Iran’s lead negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi, announced that his country’s enrichment rights had been recognized in the negotiations, after which Iranian President Hassan Rouhani praised the supreme leader’s guidelines for achieving world power recognition of Tehran’s “nuclear rights.”

    However, Secretary of State John Kerry in his first appearance after the signing denied this concession had been made. He said: “The first step, let me be clear, does not say that Iran has a right to enrich uranium.”
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov lined up solidly behind the Iranian version of the accord, confirming world recognition had been extended for Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear energy, including the right for enrichment.

    Out of step with the celebratory mood in Geneva and Washington, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned that the deal would not impede Iran’s capacity to gain a nuclear weapon. He challenged President Obama’s words that the deal was a historic achievement and called it a historic mistake, which would not obligate Israel. Israel, he said stood by its right to self defense against a regime dedicated to its destruction. As prime minister, Netanyahu pledged not to allow Iran to procure a nuclear weapon.
    President Obama also announced that key aspects of Iran’s nuclear program will be “rolled back” against limited sanctions relief and the release of deposits (nettng Iran $6-7 billion in revenue.) He said that no new centrifuges would be activated for the enrichment process, work would stop at the Arak heavy water reactor and UN inspections expanded to daily visits at the Natanz and Fordo enrichment plants to ensure that uranium is not enriched above the 5 percent permitted by the accord.

    The core sanctions architecture will remain in place, Obama promised, pending a comprehensive solution to be negotiated in the next six months, but no new sanctions would be imposed.
    Lavrov summed up the four-day conference by saying: “Considering the whole body of circumstance, there are no losers [in the Geneva deal], all sides are winners” – a view seriously challenged by Israel, Saudi Arabia and most other Middle East governments.

    With the obvious exception of your wife asking you if this dress makes her look….overweight. You can of course take the cowards way out by saying no while under your breath saying “No, it’s your fat that makes you look overweight”. But failing to tell the truth is also a lie. 2 ways you can lie; Omission and commission.

    Glenn, thank you for being a person who always tells the facts. I know from watching you so long that if you mispeak you always tell us and make the mistake right.

  • TallTexan2

    Glenn wants it both ways. His YouTube video about Mormonism is filled with half truths and flat out lies. He wants to make us think that polygamy is something some whack job down in Texas was practicing before the Feds came in and arrested him for numerous counts of marrying/having sex with under aged girls. Yea, just a real nutcase … we ‘ain’t like that guy. Well, true, most Mormons are not like that guy. However, the founder of Mormonism (Joseph Smith) along wit his brother and others such as Brigham Young, were strong believers and defenders of polygamy. The act/practice was one of the reasons why they were killed in a shootout with federal officials. I’ve always considered Glenn to be pretty much a truthful guy, though quite the zealot on many issues. However, after watching this video, and seeing his misrepresentations and lies, I can no longer support this man.
