Glenn attacked for nonviolent response to Bundy conflict, has a message for critics

Glenn is in Los Angeles, California this week working on what he described as “some really great things.” And on radio this morning, Glenn discussed a memo he sent out to some of the writers, editors, and executives at TheBlaze late last night that offered some context for the positions he has taken on certain issues lately and the path he believes will inform the company and, ultimately, the country in the near future.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I am a guy who apparently a lot of people disagree with, and that’s fine,” Glenn said. “Last night, I saw a story. Somebody sent me a story from Alex Jones, and I wrote a long memo to everybody in my company… I’m not going to respond to Alex Jones anymore. Not because I hate him or anything else, but because Alex Jones has his path… and he has a right to say those things.”

Glenn went on to explain that he spent much of last night reflecting on and praying about what the correct path forward is. While his immediate reaction to want to “punch back with the facts,” he knows that is not the answer.

“Last night, I really prayed hard. What do I do, Lord? How do I do this? Because my instinct is to punch back with the facts, and I know that’s wrong,” Glenn said. “The reason why I wrote this memo last night is I don’t want any more division. I don’t want any more hatred… I have been saying to Pat – and say it as a really flawed individual – we have to love our enemies.”

In the aftermath of the standoff in Nevada between the federal Bureau of Land Management and Cliven Bundy, Glenn understands his audience and the American people’s frustration with the federal government. But we come to a place in which there is a serious decision to be made.

“I have watched my country being poisoned and strangled to death every day, and I have been trying to ring the bell and cry out for help, help, help,” Glenn said. “Now we come to this place to where there’s a decision. We are either going to bring our guns and bring our anger and our rage, and we are going to call people names. Or we are going to go the way of Martin Luther King and Gandhi.”

Last night, Glenn picked up some of the old speeches and writings of King and Ghandi in hopes of better understanding how they led such effective and peaceful movements in the midst of discontent.

Glenn came across an interview Malcolm X gave in which he smeared King and his mission:

MALCOLM X: The white man pays Reverend Martin Luther King, subsidizes Reverend Martin Luther King, so that Reverend Martin Luther King can continue to teach the Negroes to be defenseless. That’s what you mean by non-violent: be defenseless. Be defenseless in the face of one of the most cruel beasts that has ever taken a people into captivity. That’s this American white man. And they have proved it throughout the country by the police dogs and the police clubs.

A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they’ve taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms, they’ve traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing. And just as Uncle Tom, back during slavery, used to keep the Negroes from resisting the bloodhound, or resisting the Ku Klux Klan, by teaching them to love their enemy, or pray for those who use them spitefully, today Martin Luther King is just a 20th century or modern Uncle Tom, or a religious Uncle Tom, who is doing the same thing today, to keep Negroes defenseless in the face of an attack, that Uncle Tom did on the plantation to keep those Negroes defenseless in the face of the attacks of the Klan in that day.

“As I read those words last night, I thought: History is repeating itself,” Glenn said. “How did Martin Luther King respond? In a way that came natural to him, and I must learn.”

King responded to Malcolm X’s claims with the following:

I met Malcolm X once in Washington, but circumstances didn’t enable me to talk with him for more than a minute.

He is very articulate, but I totally disagree with many of his political and philosophical views-at least insofar as I understand where he now stands. 1 don’t want to sound self-righteous, or absolutist, or that I think I have the only truth, the only way. Maybe he does have some of the answers. I know that I have often wished that he would talk less of violence, because violence is not going to solve our problem. And, in his litany of articulating the despair of the Negro without offering any positive, creative alternative, 1 feel that Malcolm has done himself and our people a great disservice. Fiery, demagogic oratory in the black ghettos, urging Negroes to arm themselves and prepare to engage in violence, as he has done, can reap nothing but grief.

In the event of a violent revolution, we would be sorely outnumbered. And when it was all over, the Negro would face the same unchanged conditions, the same squalor and deprivation-the only difference being that his bitterness would be even more intense, his disenchantment even more abject. Thus, in purely practical as well as moral terms, the American Negro has no rational alternative to nonviolence.

When they threw eggs at me in New York, I think that was really a result of the Black Nationalist groups. They had heard all of these things about my being soft, my talking about love, and they transferred that bitterness toward the white man to me. They began to feel that I was saying to love this person that they had such a bitter attitude toward. In fact, Malcolm X had a meeting the day before, and he talked about me a great deal and told them that I would be there the next night and said, “You ought to go over there and let old King know what you think about him.” And he had said a great deal about nonviolence, criticizing nonviolence, and saying that I approved of Negro men and women being bitten by dogs and the firehoses. So I think this kind of response grew out of all of the talk about my being a sort of polished Uncle Tom.

“I am telling you the same thing. Are you more angry and bitter today than you were two years ago? If your answer is yes, you’re on the wrong path,” Glenn concluded. “I am a flawed guy. I am not talking about sitting down and taking it. I am talking about standing, linked arm in arm, and if the entire world goes the other way, that is fine. I will stand. I will resist when the cause is just, but I will do so without violence, and that’s not enough. I will do so without anger in my heart. That’s the real key. With charity for all, and malice toward none.”

  • loran

    I disagreed with Glenn’s stance on Bundy when I originally heard it discussed on his Radio with Pat and Stew. I believed they got it wrong and then later I saw the entire video of Bundy and it contained the whole interview, different from what was originally put out by the left. Glenn wants to go in a direction that emulates Martin Luther King jr. That ‘s fine. But what I don’t understand is just because I disagree with his conclusions, that justifies him seeing me as full of hate? Really? I disagree with his direction and that is all. I am not and have never said that this makes him a pariah. We are all conservatives here and there is no great schism as the press would like people to believe. I also disagreed with Hannity, but the same applies to him. They are both Great Americans.

    not 100% sure what he’s trying to say here, but until he says something about his knee jerk reaction to the NYT article on Bundy, I’m not sure I’m ready to listen. Sadly.

  • Darral

    glen lost his credit ability after jumping on against the Bundy band wagon with out getting the facts; The Constitution limits federal land ownership to needful purposes. It also says that if the federal government wants to own land within a state, it has to buy it and get state legislative approval. Nevada’s legislative approval of federal acquisitions was sought by the feds for many years. The federal lands chapter of Nevada Revised Statutes lists those properties approved by the legislature. NRS Chapter 328 includes post offices, the Hoover dam site, military installations, federal buildings, the Nevada Test Site, Lehman Caves, etc. Those approvals are very specific with property descriptions as detailed as any private land transaction. BLM is not one of the approved properties on this list. Fact two Mr. Bundy was edited and taken out of context; Mr. Bundy was actually speaking up for Black America and against the government for their treatment of Black America; Mr. Bundy did not make a statement of Racism. Mr. Bundy ask a question; Mr. Bundy like every American has the right to defend his property against an Evil lawless federal Government and Lawless evil courts; and that is the truth of what has become of Americas federal government; GLEN ; If these people wanted Violence every federal agent there would be dead; The lawless Bundy ranch deal is exactly why the founders established the second Amendment; so we the people can defend against a lawless evil dictatorial Government; where is the Truth lives hear GLEN;

    Respectfully, Glenn, we are not talking about an imaginary foe here like Malcolm X the muslim Marxist racist was. We are talking about a very real foe like the Brownshirts just before the rise of the Nazis and the Gestapo. Malcolm X’s enemy was a fabrication based on a few horrific incidents, exploited for political coin. The Brownshirts were very real, very dangerous, and under the direct control of the government – you know, like BLM, DOE, FDA, and DHS SWAT/PARAMILITARY teams, just to name a few.

    This is not a fictitious enemy being called out by a racist Marxist. This is a real enemy with a real agenda and a real Cult of Personality behind it.

    I believe you are a decent man, and I believe you are a Christian, but I also believe you have lost sight of reality.

    Sometimes you must gird yourself and take up sword and shield.

    It’s been fun, Glenn.

    So Glenn, just how long do we pray and hope the federal government will reverse its goal of turning our nation into a Socialist pig sty completely controlled by DC? Protests like the Bunkerville dust up call attention to the continued violation of the Constitution by federal agencies. Violations that have been promoted in the past by liberal politicians and the judges they have appointed.

    When a territory becomes a state; the land within its borders is supposed to become land controlled by that state.

    The Enclave Clause Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 requires just that.

    Remember:

    Thomas Jefferson said, in 1823,

    “On every question of construction, carry ourselves
    back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit
    manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed
    out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which
    it was passed.”

    James Madison:

    “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do,
    you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a
    distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” …

    Great subject. Obviously, just like the MSM, Beck is guilty of using parts of stories to suit his own purpose. This is one reason why I don’t watch/read news in the media. Glenn has turned to love, very much like obama has turned to loving America’s enemies. If I want preachings about love or God I can listen to the multitude of the TV evangelists out there, who say pretty much the same as Glenn is preaching now, butthey all do it for the MONEY. Glenn, if you are so much full of love why do you have armed bodyguards 24/7? Are you afraid? And please don’t tell us about your right path that you are taking, there is no proof that your path is the right one.

    Well said Darral, I was very dissapointed in Glenn”s quick response also, it just didn’t seem right, Then to find out NYT had edited the vid. It happens to most people with conservative views, and even with the edited video I didn’t feel as tho Mr. Bundy’s remarks were racist.

    While I do not agree with Glenn’s assertions that Bundy’s remarks are racist, seemed to me like it was more a rant against the government than anything else, I am not ready to throw Glenn under the bus because we happen to disagree on this one thing.

    Glenn I m a Christian and I believe in non violence and I pray everyday that this gets resolved by the ballot box and not the Bullet box. I admire Dr. King tremendouly. But did an armed group of federal agents come to forcerfully remove him from MLK’s property? Tell me about the time when the BLM had AR 15′s in MLK’s face? I didn’t happen. We have been following MLK’s lead for the last 6 years. We have peacefully protested Obamacare yet we got it, We have protested for less taxes yet we get more. We had questions about Benghazi, The IRS targeting of conservative groups yet we get no answers.If someone came on to your land and pointed AR 15′s at you or better yet while you and your family were hikiing in a national park and they forcerfully tried to move you off and you stood against that. Would it be ok if I tried to frame you as a crazy “Soveriegn citizen” Or would that be un- Jesus like or Un- MLK like of me? MLK didnt even frame Malcom X this way. Stop framing people as crazy who are legitimately trying to seek the truth. Some of those crazy people who voted for Ron Paul instead of RomneyBush were the same people standing with you at restoring Honor. Please stop being vey unchristanlike in demonizing half of the people that are on our side. Because the more you keep doing that. The more you seem to be a fraud. Act like a Christian at all times. Not just some of the time.

    Why were the “militia” groups the fringe. Some people came there with their weapons but they apparently were not set on using them.

You are not alone, and while there are those who’s emotions are to strong to allow the clarity of the path of peace for now, please know there are those of us in your audience that have been the right hand of anger in the past and we ourselves have found the right, true, and only path…. the path of LOVE. For those of you who are still angry and confused about where to stand, PLEASE watch the movie Gandhi. PLEASE just watch the magic of the power of non violence, WATCH what happened when Gandhi’s people peacefully marched to the salt sea. God bless my friends and those who would not call themselves a friend. I will still pray and peacefully stand for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of their own happiness.

    At Lexington green, Men stood to armed because they knew what happened in Boston to Crispus Attucks. Men Stood armed at the Bundy Ranch because they knew what happened at Ruby Ridge, Waco, and countless other places across America where the state has decided that force was the best way to gain compliance by the citizenry. It is good to speak of peace and to practice it to resolve all conflicts. However, peaceful means of protest only work in the face of reason. If the aggressor has shown time and time again that the default answer is violence, then you must deal with him with a weapon in hand and the resolve not to become his victim.

    Do not initiate aggression, do not accept aggression.

    The Militia/Oath Keepers/Supports showed up to support the Bundy Ranch AFTER the BLM had marksman on the hill pointing rifles at women and children. If the Supports had been there for violent intent, all those Feds would have been dead. The supports simply made it known that violence will not be tolerated against peaceful folks – and yes, carrying a gun doesn’t make you violent. If these folks had showed up on Ruby Ridge, maybe Vicky would still be alive; and just maybe this is why the Bundy’s are still alive.

    Yes, Glenn lost some points with me on this – I know it doesn’t matter to him, but always speak the truth. I wonder how long it will take Glenn to jump on the bandwagon for Christie, Bush or Romney over Paul in the primaries? We already know he will back any GOP in the Presidential Election.

    Folks,

    I also identify myself as a Christian; a born-again believer in Jesus the Christ, only begotten Son of God, my Lord and Savior. Like Glenn [and I hope all reading this] I want to exhaust every constitutional, Lawful, and non-violent means of restoring and preserving our constitutional republic under the rule of valid laws.

    The largest portion of the current crisis is the lawlessness of all 3 branches of our federal government. My question to Glenn is this: once every constitutional, Lawful, and non-violent means is exhausted … what then? Does Glenn agree that at some point IF our federal officeholders refuse return to our constitutions and at some point seek to disarm us and subjugate us by force … that we have the inalienable Right and constitutional and patriotic duty to resist by force and force of arms the tyranny they have planned for us?

    As to the canard of “racism,” words need to be protected, speech [even speech we vehemently disagree with] needs to be protected. Bundy’s words and those of the NBA Owner ought not ever be grounds for economic, let alone criminal persecution or prosecution.

    Those seeking to destroy our Inalienable Rights, seeking to enslave us by any means possible, now seek speech codes, and intimidation and courts to silence all opposing views. They are using the IRS and many other government agencies to abuse us.

    Non-violence yes … until violence is used against us allowing us nothing left save self defense.

    Are we able to agree on that?

    Glenn, the Oath Keepers did not go to NV with hate. They are not a militia. They went down there to make sure the Bundy’s had their day in court. The BLM does not have the right to bear arms against US citizens. They do not have the right to snipers. Oath Keeper are peaceful and had they not gone down there the FEDs would have murdered that family.
    That was the only OK mission.
    Bundy is not a monster for what he said. But the media wanted to not support him and when he opened his mouth to change feet The Blaze couldn’t move fast enough to say Bundy was not worth caring about.

    Folks, there will be a time when we will have to defend ourselves – even with violence if necessary. Now is not the time. Beck is right. I fought back the urge to take my rifle and head to NV to join with Brother Cliven. I was angry with Beck’s stance. However, he is taking this from the true Christian path. You who know all should take a course in the doctrine of “Jus ad Bellum”.

    We still have recourse in this country. We still have a system that works if we will stand together.

    Glenn will die broke, but he will not have spent his principles. All of you who have hate in your hearts – let it go. Exhaust all of the peaceful solutions first. Come together. If you want to call me a “commie” or a “peacenick” – go right ahead; I know my heart. You who are willing to die for our country – try living for it first. You are worth as much to us dead as you are with your attitude of violence.

What if the people taking my property claim that I owe someone else a whole bunch of money? I suppose violence is really really bad but so too is threatening me with violence and taking my stuff.

    You don’t get it Glenn. People are mad because you would not support Bundy and you ignored or spun facts to paint him as the bad guy. The BLM has used every dirty trick in the book to take land and grazing rights from ranchers and you your response is give the BLM the benefit of the doubt.
    All Bundy did was protest, there WAS NO VIOLENCE, what part of that do you not understand? Given Wako and Ruby ridge I contend the reason there was no violence was because of all the armed citizens. The worst you can say about Bundy is he engaged in a little civil disobedience just like Rosa Parks. Are you going now going to tell us she was wrong for standing against an unjust law? This entire thing was a land grab by the BLM and they have done it before. Glenn I have lost a lot respect for you over this.

    Jaamoose your wrong. Do you think it’s alright for the government to come in and take your house and property because they can? We have not forgotten Ruby Ridge or Waco and know what the government we do if we do nothing! Glenn jumped on the bandwagon with O’Reilly and the rest of the moderates against Bundy and it’s a shame. Glenn talks about us acting like MLK, what happened to MLK? It will happen to us if we choose to do nothing.

  • Anonymous

    What Glenn is failing to realize is that the reason ML King and Gandhi were able to stand arm in arm and successfully resist great powers, was because the countries they were resisting were essentially Christian. Though flawed, when it came down to shooting peaceful protesters, the governments caved BECAUSE they held that men ultimately had divine value. But the history of the past 120 years of Marxist countries is very different and that is what is now driving the policy of our nation. Marxist countries simply eliminate opposition. 220 million non-combatant citizens murdered to date and counting. Do you think there were no peaceful protesters in the Soviet Union? Or No. Korea? How about in China today where you can find videos, ignored by the media here, showing steam rollers literally roll over protesters. How about the church destroyed yesterday in Sanjiang China? No, Glenn! In the USSR and RED China — and all Marxist regimes around the world — they simply shoot peaceful protesters and bury them in mass graves. Such is the blood lust of Obama’s mentors and minions with their total contempt for God, America, and humankind. We are on the verge of Martial Law. They have numerous ways to pull it off — a bank “virus” then bank holiday; an EMP; a power grid “attack”; a nuclear device —and when that happens, you and Alex Jones will become nothing but a footnote in some future essay about the enemies of the state. That is why I have been trying and trying, by FAX, letter, and phone call, to urge ALL of you pundits to JOIN TOGETHER and form a coalition. Hold rallies in 4 or 5 states across the country and deliver all the most significant proof of the fraud and high crimes and corruption the leadership has been committing. You would draw out the military who have been disarmed and dismissed and are cowering in their homes, fearful of what will happen if the NSA-gathered dossier on them get out. You would will bring millions into the streets and embolden the great majority of Americans who are tired and frustrated by the everyday constant barrage of what is wrong with everything. You and Michael Savage, Hannity, Levin, and yes, even Alex Jones, agree on MUCH (I listen to all of you) and could unite to save the country. By standing up NOW, we have a chance to intervene before the fall of America. Remember, it was the God-fearing Founding Fathers who wrote the Second Amendment, not because they didn’t believe in the ultimate goodness of God or men, but exactly BECAUSE they knew that God helps those who stand up for what is right. How far would the American Revolution have gotten if Washington had insisted everyone just stand peacefully arm-in-arm and resist? Take a stand peacefully for liberty– then be willing to die for it! THAT is what made our country free and that is what will make it great again.

  • WilliamWallace

    Let me get this right, Bundy says that negro’s should NOT be dependent on government subsidy since that is the same as slavery, and that is bad. But the Clippers coach can says that he doesn’t want black people being brought to his games etc.. and Stu has tickets for the game tonight? So Bundy bad Clipper coach good. I think Glenn should call out his employees for being hateful racist like all the Bundy supporters I guess now are. 1984 folks.

    Cliven Bundy is not now nor has he ever been a racist and he never advocated violence except if he/they were fired upon first. They were more restrained than I might have been with the BLM’s use of tasers and attack dogs. He did not misspeak about the Negros being slaves. They ARE slaves to the welfare system. They haven’t learned anything to help their lot in life, not even how to pick cotton(Clive’s words) or the willingness to do any menial job as a step up to something better. There is no need. “Massa Gov’t” give ‘em all dey nee.

    Instead of bravely expanding on Clive’s observations and making them more palatable for the low-info, black-guilt folks, Glenn chose to ridicule, mock and totally misrepresent what was actually said. Glenn is way too smart to not know what Clive’s meaning was.

    Then, Glenn doubled down with more of the same.

    I’ve been an annual Blaze subscriber since its inception and have enjoyed being part of the “Network That You’re Building”. But this episode is 180 degrees from correct. It seems Glenn was more willing to rock the boat when he was on some other man’s network and dime. Now that he has his own brand to build and coddle, he seems to be hiding an unpopular truth with sanctimony.

    I have been following him for so long because he used to be the place to go to find truth. “The truth lives here” doesn’t ring too true on this issue.

    Open Memo To Glenn

    I love you, man, but please understand; I know that you know you misrepresented what Cliven Bundy said. I will not judge your reasoning, but I have developed an opinion. I’m only one subscriber, but rest assured, I will walk unless you stop your propaganda or sufficiently explain your stance. My prayers for your new awakening.

    Yesterday I sent Glenn and Stu an email denouncing them for their position regarding the Bundy affair. I cancelled all subscriptions, unsubscribed from all emails, dropped my Blaze/Netflix affiliation. I’m done. Same thing for Hannity. I believe that Beck and Hannity were “found out”. There are reports out there, that the White House contacted Clear Channel and “wanted the coverage to stop”. It looks like this is what Glenn and Hannity were doing, as opposed to being at the Bundy ranch. I did notice that InfoWars was there, Pete Santilli was there, Stewart Rhodes was there, Sheriff Mack was there…you get the idea. Yes, Fox was there…( prior to the “call” I just mentioned)..then the “about face”.
    Sorry Glenn…all I can picture is Paul Revere riding up to you…only to have you say ” Go away, can’t you see I’m trying to build an empire here???”
    Glenn…you haven’t covered a cutting edge story for a long time. This is just the final straw…you can carry on with out me…and probably minus many others.

    Glen, No-0ne wanted non-violence more than the people who came in to protect Mr. Bundy from the BLM. But someone has to make a stand somewhere, and that is what this was all about. Check your facts again and be careful of seeing things only through your own eyes.

    What dont you and Beck not get????? America was BIRTHED OUT OF REVOLUTION to a tyrannical govt and their laws, THE BRITISH!!!! Just like our ORIGINAL PATRIOT BROTHERS, we have been putting up with this UNCONSTUTIONAL ADMINISTRATION, trying to have our voices heard, and what are we met with, a govt that uses the 1930′s Germany playbook to a T!!!! This administration uses govt agencies, the IRS, DOJ, etc.,to harass and oppress all opposing political voices, TRANSFORMS the PRESS to create OBAMA STATE RUN MEDIA, to push out PROPAGANDA onto the People, the Judicial court system has been infiltrated to perpetrate his agenda, the Educational System has been infiltrated to INDOCTRINATE THE CHILDREN!! Just like the Revolutionary War, the time for talking must end, speaking to deaf ears! Yours and Beck’s attitudes would have resulted in an America under BRITISH RULE!!!! You see, you and beck are labelling Freedom Fighters as the aggressors, just like England did and today’s Harry Reid, calling us terrorists!!!! WHAT A SHAME!!!! God has even armed His people against tyrants and Blessed His People for battle, it is scriptural, Jesus Himself had His disciples buy swords, FOR DEFENSE, but there is your misguided intentions, not applying defense to the American Patriots actions! GOD BLESS AMERICA, OUR FLAG WILL ALWAYS FLY AGAINST TYRANNY, foreign & DOMESTIC!!!

  • Anonymous

    I found something in a newspaper from 74 which indicated that Harry Reid was the defense attorney for the ranchers and farmers in the Sagebrush rebellion. It appears that Harry Reid basically rolled his clients over to the Feds and that his clients were pretty furious about it.
    I need to get to Clark County, Nevada and research the case because if this is correct it explains much that Harry Reid has said and how it would benefit him and the administration to keep Bundy quiet, permanently.

    Exactly. When King was talking about being outnumbered, he was talking about more white people than black people. Beck is comparing not even apples to oranges, but apples to cars. Beck either believes what he is doing/saying/said is right or he doesn’t. He’s doing A LOT of talking AND back peddling. I’m SURE he took a BIG hit over this.
    I was one of those that was going to ‘boycott everything Beck’, but then I thought I’d still listen and read how he was going to get out of his ditch he dug. He can ‘explain’ all he wants. He’s just digging himself deeper.

  • lloyde

    Glenn, you are talking about two different things and making them the same. They are not. The founders gave us the second amendment to protect ourselves from the tyrant government. At that ranch it was the government that brought weapons. Then the militia came with weapons just as the 2nd was designed to do. I don’t want to see civilians shooting first but I don’t want to see them shot either. A man who fights when he shouldn’t is a fool and one that doesn’t fight when he should is a coward.

  • Adam Jenson

    On a separate note. While non-violence is preferred if possible, sometimes it is necessary and total pacifism dose not work any more then socialism. Hitler was not stopped by pacifism and radical Islam can’t be stopped by pacifism.
    Glenn you keep saying “be careful who you stand with” so I hope you know about Gandhi. Gandhi said suicide would have been better for the Jews then to fight Hitler.

    Gandhi also hated blacks. Gandhi supported segregation in South Africa, refered to them as “k****s”, and felt blacks were inferior.
    Here is a quot from Gandhi.
    “Ours is one continued struggle against degradation sought to be
    inflicted upon us by the European, who desire to degrade us to the level
    of the raw K*****, whose occupation is hunting and whose sole ambition
    is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with, and then
    pass his life in indolence and unclothedness.”

  • William Fisher

    So….Glenn…I am amongst your biggest fans. BUT…BUT….here you talk about love and using peaceful paths to change the country. OK, I don’t disagree. But the voting booth has been soiled and that leaves an event like Operation American Spring as a meaningful, peaceful (that is the intent), means of getting the attention of this out of control government back in line with the principles of the American people. Yet, I see no support from anyone for such an event. Why? Did Martin Luther KIng just sit home and pray? He did not. He marched, he occupied and he made his requests for equality known by doing so. We are at a precipice and the tipping point may already have been breached. With that in mind, why do you continue to disregard this event and show no support for it. Colonel Riley deserves the support of every red blooded American who longs for a return to our Constitutional values. It’s past time Glenn and I respectfully request you get on board.

    The problem is, Beck is oriented and obsessed with “One TRUE Golden Pathway”. Our Founding Fathers didn’t take a pacifist pathway when they knew it would not work. If they had, we would all be singing “God Save The Queen” today instead of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”.

    The differences are these: Ghandi and MLK knew one thing when making their decisions— The 20th Century governments of the UK and USA were fairly good and benevolent, and that is why those methods worked. On the other hand, Hitler Germany was a different matter for the Jews. Washington D.C. has shifted significantly toward that of Dictator since MLK in the ’60′s. Take a look at the black-uniformed, commando-looking law enforcement of today in this Country and tell me— does it look more Andy Griffith and UK Bobby, or is it more like SS- Storm Troopers?

    I understand Glenn’s intent and his meaning. What ever else he may be, he is not a shill for the liberal left. He has a differing view for different reasons. He feels strongly about that view. The thinkers among us will realize those facts eventually. They won’t agree with them, and they don’t have to, but they DO have to understand that his path is just different, not evil, suspicious, cowardly, only different. If we don’t have room for different among ourselves, what is it we are fighting the obama administration for? Obama doesn’t want different, he wants lock step submission to his will. Refusal will bring anger, threats, and desperate action. Kind of what Glen is facing now. The younger and more violent among us see Glenn as the enemy. To you I say again, you hate obama and his ilk because they insist that we accept what they are willing to give us and step back for what they wish to change or remove. And now, because Glenn is not crying for blood or demanding militant action, he has become, in your eyes, a traitor to the cause. I am not sure about you but MY cause is to recreate the America that Obama, and so many before him since at least Wilson, have slowly eroded. I want the freedoms that are lost. Foremost would be the freedom of thought, speech, and to differ. Obama doesn’t want anything to do with that! And you act like you don’t either. I’ve been places and done things that, to this day, creep me out, cost me sleep, drop me into depression, and make me a person I don’t like. I’d do it all again for freedom! But NOT if that freedom is restricted to only those who all agree. Glenn has a God given, Constitutionally guaranteed right to feel different than everybody else. Maybe he doesn’t communicate it well. We often don’t either. If Glenn’s rights are not honored, how are we different from what we are fighting? Your anger needs to be placed with the forces we detest, not our own. I’ll fight as hard and as long as anyone, perhaps more than many of you because I’ve been trained, have experienced what it’s like to kill or face the very real possibility of being killed. It is no easy thing to take away a life. If it is to you, I don’t want anything to do with you! If this can all be settled peacefully, I will jump on that opportunity like a dog on a bone. If only conflict will settle it, may God be with us and give us the strength to do his will, and the ability to forgive ourselves.

  • JKS

    My point is this – there will be a time to show up with guns. This was not one of them.

    Bundy did not pay his bill. Like it or not, he owes grazing fees. Those who ran down there with their guns should have taken up a collection and paid Bundy’s bill. Why should Bundy get away with profiting from our public lands without paying his grazing fees? I live in an area surrounded by public lands that are leased by local ranchers. All of whom PAY THEIR FEES. If Bundy didn’t like the answer he received from the court he should have appealed.

    The BLM overreacted. They just needed to file a lien and collect just like the rest of us.

    You people (RD and Jesusknight) and anybody else who shows up with a gun, are just itching for a fight. Is this not violence? You are all playing into the hands of those who want to take away our guns. They want us to overreact. They want us to create more poster children for the anti-gun movement.

  • goodwater

    @ Deb – Mr. Bundy refused to pay the grazing fees because he, supported by the U. S. Constitution, understands that Nevada owns the land not the federal government. He has repeatedly professed that he would pay the grazing fee to the State of Nevada. Mr. Bundy is absolutely correct.

    You parrot the same false assertion that 90% of Americans incorrectly believe. Were you to study the U. S. Constitution and the Federalist Papers written by the Founders – Madison, Jay and Hamilton you would realize that what you have been taught in school, read in the newspapers, heard on the TV by so called commentators, and the falsehoods our government – politicians, bureaucrats and courts have been telling, is one gigantic lie.

    If by chance you are not aware what the Federalist Papers are – these were 85 newspaper articles published which explained the U. S. Constitution to the citizens of the 13 Colonial States written by the above name three Founders. Madison and Hamilton represented their respective Colonial State as the Constitution was hammered out. If fact, Madison was appointed by the Continental Congress to draft the Constitution to reflect the unanimous agreements that were incorporated in that Ruling Document.

    Would you had studied the Constitution instead of being lead by what other people have told you would have learned that all the clauses in Article I Section 8 in conjunction with the Federalist Papers makes it quite clear – the federal government, when created by the People, was never given Constitutional authority to own public lands, i.e., national parks, grazing areas, forests, or for what ever reason it claims. In fact, the next to last clause of Section 8, commonly called the Enclave clause, specifically restricts property ownership by the federal government to the erections of forts, magazines, arsenals, dock-yards and other needful buildings as well as the ten mile square known as the District of Columbia (Federalist #24, 12th and 13th paragraph and Fed # 43, 6th paragraph). Needful building, taken in context of the entire Article I Sec 8 enumerated powers refers to property for post offices, roads, courts, etc., needed to carry out these delegated functions.

    There are those who cite Article IV Sec 3, 2nd paragraph as the authority. But the reading is also quite clear as to the term Territory which is explained by Madison in Federalist #7, 2nd and 3rd paragraphs and in Federalist #43, 5th paragraph – to quote, “The proviso annexed is proper in itself, and was probably rendered absolutely necessary by jealousies and questions concerning the Western Territory sufficiently know as public.” The Western Territory, commonly called the crown lands by the British, at the time of construction and ratification extended west of the Thirteen Colonial States to the eastern bank of the Mississippi River.

    Since the Enclave clause of Section 8 restricts the property ownership by the federal government for specific purposes the liberal interpretation of Article IV Sec 3, 2nd clause “needful rules and regulations respecting the Territory or other property belonging to the United States” as the authority for “holding land in trust for the American people” would be in contradiction to the intent of the Founding Fathers as detailed in Article I Sec 8. An interpretation contrary to Madison (Fed 43) and Hamilton (Fed 24) detailed explanation of the Constitution as it was codified is a false interpretation.

    Once states were organized in the Western Territory and admitted to the union the federal government relinquished the territorial lands to the respective states pursuant to the Constitutional restriction on land ownership by the federal government with the exception of the forts, arsenals, … and other needful buildings, that had been established in accordance to the Enclave clause of Article I Sec 8. For the most part the federal percentage ownership in the former British Territory now ranges from .08 in Iowa and NY to 11.8 percent in North Carolina, some of which has been confiscated for federal parks, forest lands, grazing lands, etc., all of which are unconstitutional holdings.

    The next huge lands annexed were the Louisiana Purchase which was then relinquished for settlement and private expansion. Today the percentage of property under federal government control in these States range from .8 in Iowa to 7.2% in Arkansas. These percentages include lands that were declared as federal parks, etc., which is NOT authorized in the Constitution.

    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo secede millions of acres to the federal government but in this case the federal government has retained a land inventory ranging from 29.9%in Montana to 84.5% in Nevada. Needless to say, all such lands controlled by the federal government is unconstitutional with the exception of necessary property for “forts, magazines, arsenals,…… and needful buildings” as restricted by Article I Sec 8.

    It all boils down to this, the federal government has no lawful authority to own or hold in trust an inventory of land except as provided for in the Constitution as detailed in the preceding paragraphs.

    In fact, to restrict the peoples’ use of their own lands all federal laws and regulations issued by the EPA, USDA, Energy, Corp of Engineers, etc., which currently restrict owners’ use of their lands are unconstitutional as outside the scope of the enumerated powers.

    Furthermore, any previous rulings by the Supreme Court allowing the federal government to possess property beyond the needs specified in Article I Section 8 is an unconstitutional ruling. The Supreme Court is bound by the chain of the Constitution.
    Nor can laws be passed by Congress authorizing the federal government to possess lands outside of those specific restriction of the Constitution as cited in the preceding paragraphs.

    “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison

    It was Thomas Jefferson who wisely gave us “the key” as to unlocking the reading and understanding of the Constitution, “On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

    The author of the Constitution James Madison issued these instructions, “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

    Bundy broke no Law, in fact he upholds the Law of the Land – The U. S. Constitution.

    It has been argued that the Chinese solar plant deal had nothing to do with the BLM going after Bundy because the plant was to be located 50 miles away. However, the land on which the Chinese were to build contained protected desert tortoises. For the deal to proceed there needed to be a mitigation site to relocate the tortoises. This mitigation site was the land on which the Bundy cattle grazed. Therefore, the cattle needed to go so Harry’s son could make his million fron the Chinese deal. I wouldn’t be surprised if Dingy Harry wasn’t making a few bucks too.

    The recent military style arming of federal agencies via Homeland Security’s purchasing of 3,500 armored personnel carriers and other military weapons. And yes, that includes machine guns and explosive weapons. Those people, report directly to Obama – not the congress. Obama has his private army. When the time comes, the few military leaders who have survived Obama’s paranoid purging, will be removed by his domestic army.

    When Beck was on Fox doing his blackboard speeches, exposing the communists(progressives) , exposing Soros, Van Jones, Holdren, Sunstein, and others. He was definitely a catalyst that helped drive the people to elect over 70 tea party candidates to the house in the 2010 elections..

    Gotta love all the Alex Jones loons posting on the Blaze. Doubt they ever listened to Glenn a day in their life. Notice they completely ignore the Malcolm X/MLK discussion. Bundy is a useful idiot for the neoNazis and the over zealous militia types that give those of us who believe in the Constitution and the ideals of the founders a bad name and causes us to lose credibility in the community.

    Wasn’t Bundy saying that the self appointed politically sensitive oligarchs in DC are no better than slave owners? That the society they’ve architected and the role they’ve assigned to black Americans is, to a large extent, slavery with a more benign and misleading name – and that only when liberty is extolled and respected can any race’s lot be improved? I’m sure he’s not the world’s most articulate political and social commentator — and the media will alway jump on any one they think they can label racist — and yet there is extended to all left wingers a presumptive innocence that Obama and Holder and Reid among many other enjoy. The actual consequences of their policies, whatever their intention or their words — has brought great travail on black Americans — and the middle class as well.

    Who says “cause violence”? I say, “prevent violence”. Big difference. Who perpetrated violence at the Bundy ranch? The armed patriots on the scene? Nope. That would be the feds, with their sniper rifles, their tasers and their dogs. Who prevented violence? That would be the armed patriots who, should the need have arisen, would have put down the feral federal menace. God was on the side of those patriots. God is not all peaceful and lovey and squishy. He instructed the Israelites to destroy Canaan utterly, did He not? Is that “peaceful”? I think the proper balance was struck by the patriots in the Bundy incident, and I thank God it was resolved peacefully. Had those people not been there, I doubt it would have been. The feral forces were itching for another Waco or Ruby Ridge, in my estimation, and it was denied to them. Thank God.

    I believe in it when the people contributing or have contributed are the voters. Also, when the safeguard of our democracy – the Constitution has not been supplanted by the whims of a despot.
    Eliminate the Ds and Rs from the ballot. That would cause the morons to research where the candidates stand on an issue; they won’t do it. Their votes would be a neutral guess and ineffective either way. If they can’t find the Ds, they can’t vote themselves a check.
    The Rs will not go along though; they want the two-party illusion of democracy to survive.

Funny how men like Beck can sit in judgement of us all while stuffing his face with strudel. Hey Glenn why have the 2nd amendment? According to you if you exercise that right then you’re extreme. They tried to take Bundy’s livelihood, So he cried out for help. A lot of help you were (none). You haven’t even checked out the whole story. It would pique my interest just a little if I had a radio show, why out of 56 ranchers Bundy is the only one left.

    I haven’t heard Bundy’s comments in any context other than what the media has been throwing around, and I was amazed at the response by Hannity and O’Reilly and their willingness to pile on along with the main stream. My thoughts as posted on FB were: “The
    reaction to Clive Bundy’s comments is stunning in the ability to totally
    miss the meaning of his statement. He used the word Negro. So, what?
    Old fashioned? Yes. A slur? Why would it be? It means black. He was by
    no means saying that black people should be slaves!! He was saying that
    big brother government has done nothing to help, and everything to hurt
    the black community, (and, though not part of his statement, also
    everyone else in an economically challenged position in life.) Stop

    Aaron is right. A debate becomes an argument the moment one side calls the other names for not agreeing with him/her. It’s like a marriage. When one partner refuses to concede that the other has a right to his/her opinion, they head to divorce court instead of learning how to “disagree agreeably.” Unless the conservatives, from far right to the middle, get together, the country can kiss the republic goodbye. The founders did not form a democracy; they formed a republic, a land governed by law, not majority rules. The majority can often be wrong…

    Really? It’s apparent that you don’t know much about the Founders. They sought redress from the King and followed every legal logical way before resorting to revolution. You are like those in the French Revolution who used emotions and malice and a “let’s get them” philosophy rather than using intelligence and logic to think of all the consequences of your action. The founders also prayed all along the way and used the Bible and God as their guide. All I see is a bunch of militia types aching for a fight and using Bundy as their tool to promote revolution. I haven’t seen anyone do what the founders did and use every peaceful means available to deal with an out of control government. Why hasn’t Bundy gone through the courts??? There are good people out there who are trying to change things like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, etc. but it takes time to overthrow 100 years of progressive policies. When you have proven that you have exhausted all possibilities, then you can talk about revolution.

    This thread worries me. People are gearing up to pull a trigger rather than standing together united. Every issue in this country is not about the 1st and 2nd amendment. If you really believe that, you are already lost. There is a whole big constitution out there that tells us how to fix the problems in government and it starts at the ballot box and the community meetings, and in the debate halls, not at the barrel of a gun. All things that lead a man to do good are of God. All things that lead to violence and lead a man to do evil are of the devil. Why are people so quick to anger? Does that not make us just as bad as those who seek to destroy us?

  • Anonymous

    Wow, after reading these responses it strengthens the my opinion that there are too many out there determined for violence on the far left as well as the far right. Clive Bundy was in the wrong. That was not his land. That land was given to the Federal Govt. when it became a State. Even if that was not the case it was not his. Reid lied when he claimed Bundy had not paid his taxes. Bundy only had not been paying grazing fees for 20 years, because he suddenly decided he should not have too. For 20 years the Govt. was pretty patient. The Govt. was wrong to send snipers, and the others were wrong to be armed as well. The Govt. was wrong to kill some of Bundy’s cattle. Bundy lost those court cases because he was wrong. He could probably settle this with a paid down amount of past fees. Then pay the grazing fees onward. Unlike some other cases I’m sure some will spew, the Govt. was not attempting to take Bundy’s land. They only want him to begin paying the grazing fees that others are in fact paying. 2 wrongs, 3 wrongs or 4 wrongs will never make something right.

    GLEN, you’re just not a big enough man to admit when you’re

    mind”, whether you like to believe it or not. Time for you to be knocked
    down to reality a notch or two, yes the money is great isn’t it? You’d do
    anything to keep it, right? God forbid Americans to take back a country that
    has been stolen from them by the greedy, and God knows you’ve done everything
    in your power to stick up for the employer that pays the least they can get
    away with just to keep more for themselves instead of being part of the
    solution and paying a decent wage so a family that works their hands to bones
    doesn’t have to live in a trailer park. Greed has many faces, i.e. money, fame,
    land, money, fame, OMG I can’t lose this! I don’t care if I’m wrong, I’m right,
    I know I am. BECK, I looked up to you, I know people get things wrong, but a
    good man admits when he is wrong and studies himself to assure he is right in
    his task. Bundy’s true statement was not racist, what he stated was correct in
    his own interpretation, take out the ignorance and it was true. We are supposed to live in a country with
    free speech, but you and your moderators have proven. Even the ones who stand
    up for our Bill of Rights and our Constitution are not real but tools used by
    “WHO EVER USES YOU”, yes even you are a tool, but I’m sure you don’t
    see it. Money is a disease, I would be
    lying if I were to say I wouldn’t take on that disease and say I’d fight it and
    be a better person. God forbid someone on YOUR website states something
    questionable, “Oh God, better remove that, we don’t want the media to
    think we and or our listeners are racists”. Even if it’s not either, just
    questionable by some hacks looking from the outside for anything, just anything
    to make you or US (yes US in caps, IT’S NOT JUST YOU) that would look bad,
    though you are the one in the light (and yes, we are faceless, that much is
    understandable) but you and or staff fail to have the fortitude to point that
    out. You have forgotten that, it appears it’s not just to me but too many. This
    entire site is “ONLY YOU” to you and you don’t want to look bad, you
    may have created it, but it’s ours too, we add to it, give your ideas and
    support. I feel after this, you’ve lost
    a lot more than you think; you’ve lost a large portion of your audience. You might say to yourself and others that the
    ones you’ve lost don’t matter or don’t count but you’re wrong. This is what separated you from the Bill
    O’Rielley’s and others that only flow with what it is “IN”. People
    are people and people are not perfect, especially when they are trying to
    explain something and they are not as articulate as your writers or
    yourself. That makes them racists or one
    of your favorite words, “NOT P.C.”.
    Look into yourself, but who am I, “A nobody” that has read
    your work for years. To let you know,
    not that you’ll ever see this, but I stopped paying for your site when I

    better than the animating contest of freedom,
    go home from us in peace.

  • Robert Stifler

    This whole mess has really troubled me from day one. I both agree and disagree with a lot of the comments here. When this story broke I truly felt this was the time to stand. I’ve been puzzled with The Blazes lazy reporting on this but have been patient. I sense as someone already stated that Glenn didn’t want to get involved with this story because Alex Jones was already all over it. I believe Jones is a disgrace and an embarrassment to the Conservative movement. I’ve never understood how somebody could be both a fan of Glenn’s and a fan of Jones? Jones touches on some good stories but always takes it to the extremes that ends at “golden fried babies”. Anybody with half a brain understands Alex Jones is a psychopath!

    What has disturbed me about this story and Glenn is his immediate attacks on us, his subscribers. Most of us here don’t want violence. Were just simply fed up and honestly I’m not sure how much more of this administration I can take. Glenn has been talking about solutions a lot the last few years. Well come on man, step up and help us out here! I agree this needs to be done peacefully but when the Feds show up at your door with machine guns to collect a “tax”. what the heck are we supposed to do? David Barton was on Glenn’s show about a week ago talking about how few American’s actually vote and we should place our anger more at those folks than the Government. I was kinda hoping that would lead to a larger discussion but it went nowhere. That’s a theme I could actually get behind. All these mindless ignorant sheep roaming our country complaining about everything but refusing to go to the polls is a huge problem! How do we get these people to vote?

    All said and done. I will continue to watch and listen to Beck and The Blaze. As much as I think they blew this story, I still have tremendous respect for the team.
    Glenn Beck has truly changed me and made me a better man over the last six years. I refuse to give up on him because of one disagreement. He’s proved several times over to be honest and trustworthy.

    Why would anyone have allegiance to this government?

    It was the government, after all, which erected “First Amendment Zones”.

    Whether or not you agree with Bundy on the land use issue, will you at least admit that the feral government was beyond the pale when they tased and dogged and beat protesters? Will you agree that the proper perimeter of a First Amendment Zone extends all the way to our borders, in all directions?

    I thank God the day didn’t end with bloodshed, but I’m not timid about pointing out who was pointing guns first. Fedgov was wrong, the patriots were correct, and Glenn is … well … you fill in that blank yourself.

    non-violence is absolute and only in a defensive mode do we strike w/violence. it just has to be that way or we will fall into the government trap and surely glenn’s reasons are more celestial.

    patience is the virtue we have endured now for some time and what glenn’s saying is practice/study more patience.

    my speech IS there. my mind needs to tell my body ‘more of that please’ for hating the enemy is primal. it’s natural to lash out in anger. tamping down anger is an unnatural reflex, however, practicing resistance gets us where we need to be — the other way, not much.

    just two things glenn: you quote mlk referencing the negro being outnumbered — do we not surround them? isn’t this a different time wherein all citizens have rights, not just some? are you saying that WE are outnumbered. WE ALL are the republic. again, do we not surround them?

    It’s not Beck’s taking a different path that I object to, personally.

    That has caused me to cancel my subscription to his TV properties, and to care very little about his opinions on other things.

    My daughter asked me why I don’t watch “Real News” any more. I turned it into a learning experience for her.

    But you have smeared thousands of your fans by brushing them all with the same brush. I support Cliven Bundy, I don’t think he is racist, (along with CL Bryant, Alan Keyes, & many other black activists who have weighed in), I don’t think he is perfect, or brilliant either. BUT Bundy has put a spotlight on federal ownership of land, and you are pissing away the momentum and the opportunity by making it about how YOU FEEL rather than the Constitutional freedoms the people of the USA desire to restore.

    You have slandered the people who have been supporters of both you and of Bundy. And you keep doubling down like we’re all lunatics. It IS offensive Glenn, especially to those of us who love you and have supported you.

    No, the people are not “gearing up to pull a trigger”. Their upset because they feel Glenn misrepresented and all but spun this story against Bundy. Their upset because Glenn said those who sided with Bundy are hate filled. Their upset because Glenn condemned citizens protesting against the BML (without using violence by the way). Their upset because Glenn ignored similar illegal actions by the BLM. (http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/15602-federal-judge-rules-for-property-rights-smacks-down-abusive-feds)

    Beck and his two clownish side-kicks, Pat and Stu, add up to a little of nothing when it comes to action. They are all talk, and much of that talk is BS. Thoreau acted. Gandhi acted. MLK acted.

    When Glenn stops running his mouth, gets off his butt, and actually walks on the front line in a show of peaceful defiance against the government goon-squads— and risks his life like Gandhi and MLK did—-then, and only then, I’ll reconsider changing my very low opinion of Glenn.

    Talk is cheap, so let’s actually see Glenn do a peaceful sit-in and actually get arrested by the goons with badges and guns. Let’s see if Glenn is half the man Gandhi was.

    And say what you want about Jones, but he’s no coward….. And to say or even imply that Jones advocates violence over peaceful resistance is slander, plain and simple. Jones may may go overboard at times when he acts like an hysterical redneck, but his in in-your-face style gets results. I’d trust Jones to go down and make a stand at the Alamo if and when the time comes. But Glenn, I think shall prove to be a cowardly traitor. Only time will tell.

It’s ironic the times I have stood to defend Glen against his critics, because I thought I knew and shared his heart, and all of us on the same side of this conflict need to stick together. He doesn’t seem to get the point. And he sure lost my support, when he failed to support Cliven Bundy. He could have denounced the militia groups , for example, without denouncing Bundy, if it really were all about what Beck says it’s about.

    Completely agree. I’ve been a subscriber since he started the Insider Extreme. Now, he treats me like I’m a looney because I’m glad that Americans went to physically stand beside Bundy.

    I am all for nonviolence. I support nonviolence. I advocate for nonviolence with my gun at my side. Am I to be dismissed because the presence of my gun puts me on equal footing? Isn’t that the very purpose of the Second Amendment?

    I am VERY disappointed in Glenn.

    I really hate that the real point of what is happening is being lost because we can’t tolerate what Bundy said. (No matter, we continue to scream that we’re all entitled to our opinions – but he’s not? Where’s the tolerance, now?) Sure, he’s a dunderhead who hasn’t picked up politically correct lingo – why? because he’s been out riding his cattle on land his family’s been using since 1877.
    That fact continues to be lost – which is a significant legal point. At no point should he (his family/business) ever have been taxed for use of this land. He has grandfathered rights to this land. Especially since it isn’t even federal land. Bundy is right. Always was and no matter how much they fine him, he’s still in the right. His true property rights have been violated. And we cannot forget – the use of force, especially to the degree it was used, against him, his family, other citizens, and his property – the poor defenseless cows (where was PETA??) – was completely wrong.
    And because he likened the modern-day governmental nanny & the breakdown of the family to AGHH! the word “slavery” we are dismissing his claim, because he is an outdated, simple-minded cowboy. Does that mean he has as few rights as a slave? Because that is where he has been cast. He is now a cast-off to America, because he’s old and inarticulate.
    And the rest of us suffer the consequences. By dismissing Bundy, we give credence and qualification to the BLM & the Feds and the rest of the government (Reid & his BLM protege) who will ultimately enslave us with their socialist endeavors to acquire all of our land & property rights.
    Glenn, pacifism is great for individuals – which is exactly what the Bundy’s engaged in. But what will happen when the feds come back for Bundy & no one wants to get involved, because he’s dumb about racism? And don’t doubt it. They’ll be back when no one is looking. They will take Bundy’s rights & his property – and we will be meekly sitting back & watch it happen. What then?

    An aside:

    Why do you suppose the Republicans would have done anything differently?

  • The Blue Tail Gadfly

    Hi rach_abel

    Re: “If all the registered Republicans had voted in the last presidential
    election, they would have taken all three branches of government.”

    I remember when the Republicans had control of all three branches during George W. Bush’s administration. Nothing was changed, our course wasn’t even slowed down, let alone reversed.

    If Republicans took all three branches, it would be John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Mitt Romney in control. You really think things would be any different with those Progressive RINO’s in charge today?

    Only by electing principled public servants will we fix this mess we’re in, not by voting for someone simply because they belong to a political party that may not be quite as corrupt as the other party.

    ~BTG

    “When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public
    officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God. The
    preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful
    discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place
    unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to
    execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine commands and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.” ~Noah Webster, History of the United States

    So far everyone has been peaceful. I don’t know of any violent actions taken by Bundy or his supporters.

  • Anonymous

    Glenn, I have been very critical of the way you handled this story. I believe you are misunderstanding our criticism. Either you aren’t listening to us or you are blinded by your own preconceived idea of what we are saying. From the beginning you have made this about violence, not us. You immediately came out and said don’t react violently, when we were not. You said you must remain peaceful, when we were. My objection is that you have misconstrued this story. It is not about Bundy! Your rand about him being a dirt bag and a racist was frankly appalling. It sounded like MSNBC perverting an issue. I am not and never was a “Follower” of Bundy. I was attracted to the principles he was fighting for. I don’t care about his personal view on anything else. I believe he has a very valid point about the land issue. All we wanted was you to address the issue instead of character assassination of the man.

  • Guest

    Glenn
    obviously misinterpreted the Bundy Ranch situation, perhaps obtained his information
    from MSNBC, or, as some have asserted, has become more concerned with sponsors
    and profit margins than saving America.
    Glenn should have gone to the Bundy Ranch himself and met some of the
    veterans and average folks who had invited him there. These were good people. One man, a Marine
    Corps veteran traveled from New England to Nevada, driving 40 straight hours
    and exhibiting the type of sacrifice and determination that I remember Glenn
    preaching about during those dark days in 2009.
    This vet was not a militia member (The term “militia” has been
    demonized by the media in much the same way as “Tea Party”). He was
    just an average guy concerned for our freedom, wanting to help one of his
    fellow citizens. There were many average
    folks present as well- moms, dads, children. It’s difficult to comprehend how Glenn
    could so quickly pass judgment. I was shocked when he remarked “Be careful
    who you attach yourself to” as if to infer that these people were
    dangerous subversives or lunatics. It seems
    like I remember another person in the limelight characterizing average folks in
    the same manner- former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, who referred to the
    moms, dads, and little old ladies with blue hair as “Nazis.” If Glenn
    was concerned about violence, perhaps he should have reviewed the Bundy Ranch YouTube
    video- it wasn’t the folks protesting at the ranch that initiated violence-
    they didn’t taze anyone or body slam people to the pavement. Yes, Glenn, there
    are people who are anxious for revolution, who seemingly can’t wait to unleash
    violence on America. They’re your friends at the post office, the IRS, the Social
    Security Administration and, of course, the Department of Homeland Security who
    have collectively been acquiring large quantities of hollow point ammunition
    for use domestically (The Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, prohibited
    hollow point ammunition use in international warfare). Yes, Glenn, there are people pining for
    revolution- they’re your friends at the NSA accumulating massive data files on
    every man, woman, and child in the country irrespective of the law or the
    United States Constitution. Yes, Glenn,
    there are people are salivating for revolution- they’re you friends in the
    Administration, the Congress, and the Senate who overwhelmingly approved the
    NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) authorizing secret courts, indefinite
    detention of American citizens, and the end of habeas corpus. Yes Glenn, there are people straining at the
    bit for violence- they’re your friends in many local law enforcement agencies gearing
    up with the latest in drones, cell phone hacking, warrant-less searches and the
    military-style armored vehicles. Yes Glenn,
    there people whose patience has worn out- they’re your friends in the Cleveland,
    Ohio Police Department who recently pumped 137 rounds into a vehicle containing
    two unarmed individuals- killing both or your buddies in the Escambia County
    Sheriff’s Department (Florida) who shot an unarmed 60 year old black male in
    his own driveway fifteen times, or perhaps your friends in the Albuquerque
    Police Department who have turned the city into a a proverbial shooting gallery
    with unarmed citizens playing the role of the ducks. Yes, Glenn there are people calling for
    violence, but it’s not who you think and their actions speak far, far louder
    than their words.

    It pains me to say this, but, I would not want you in my foxhole.

    I really believed you might be our George Washington. :(

  • http://theconservativewife.blogspot.com/ The Conservative Wife

    You must understand, Glenn, that we are angry and rightfully so. We are fed up and we have had enough. But you also must understand that it will not be us to be the first to fire. But do not think for a moment that we will stand arm in arm to be used as target practice. MLK was a great man but he was murdered in cold blood. It was only after his death that things began to really change. Ghandi was imprisoned for many years and tell me with complete honesty what he changed. How is the world changed because of Ghandi? It isn’t, so be honest about it. Perhaps you should understand that sometimes all a thug understands is strength and power. When you show your strength and your power, they back down, just as all bullies do. We are called Americans because of violence. Because the other side started it. What would you have us do? Stand together and be murdered or imprisoned so we can change the world like MLK and Ghandi? My answer to that is no. I won’t start the fight, but I will not back down from one either. I myself, like many others, have defended you many times. But when the time comes to stand for something, you are over in the corner bad-mouthing…too excited to make your movies…pretending to be the only one in the world who gets on their knees and prays. You are not the voice of morality and you are not the voice of reason any longer. Choose your side and know that myself and others like me will “have your back” once again when “peace” doesn’t work out for you.

    Oh really? Prove that with an unbiased source, and I mean unbiased. If the Govt. were intent on doing harm, are you really expecting everyone to believe they came armed, then waited for all those other people to come armed and set up all that they did and having speeches and so forth in the mean time? Think about it. That makes no sense at all. They would have come quickly and done what they were going to do and no one would have known they were coming. They were going to take the cattle, which I fully believe was wrong and they did end up killing some that I fully believe was wrong. But I do NOT believe they intended on harming anyone and there is no proof. As to whom was armed first. The truth is the whole thing was handled poorly by both sides and fortunately people did not get hurt.

    I don’t buy the passive philosophy. It has worked occasionally. And many times in history a country fell to tyranny. We didn’t win this nation from England with words or Ghandi’s philosophy. We formed the Continental Army and engaged in guerrilla warfare that horrified the Brits. The result–we won.

    The simple fact is defending against a tyrannical government isn’t done with words. Never has been. We in America haven’t really been in that situation since the American Civil War. And I am sure it was inconceivable for them as well. It is easy to read about it now—long over and done, the dead now dust and the country as one. But back then the thought of war must have been incomprehensible—state against state—brother against brother. Even border states were divided. Unofficial militias raided whom they thought were traitors. Both sides.

    Whether it is NSA spying, or Lt Vance in Connecticut using his police to
    enforce unlawful orders in the near future or IRS targeting, our government is
    now advancing toward tyranny. It began long before Barry came to office as
    well. And as I predict in my own fiction there will be only one of two
    outcomes. 1) We will be ruled by tyranny. 2) We will go into our second Civil
    War. Incomprehensible? Sure. As it was a hundred and fifty years ago. But
    unfortunately history states it must happen in one of the two outcomes. Because
    never has tyranny decided one fine day to cease its advancement.

    Our largest problem in this country is apathy. You want proof? How many will state
    out loud in a coffee shop that illegal aliens should be deported and English is
    the language of this nation? Not many. Most are afraid of being labelled a
    racist. God forbid we speak a truth out loud. Someone might be offended. So I
    don’t have a lot of faith in an uprising. People don’t want to sacrifice their
    lunch hour for a cause let alone their lives. And that’s what our Founding
    Fathers put up—their lives. And many of the D of I signers died on the run and
    penniless as King George’s men continued to seek vengeance for their defeat by
    a bunch of ragtags.

    My suggestion is if you don’t want my fiction to come true we had better start
    acting with some courage. Just like the gun owners are doing in Connecticut
    right now. Because if we do not then we will be explaining to our grandchildren
    why we let tyranny take over our country when our Founding Fathers didn’t.

    The difference in Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King is that King was a uniter of races, where as Malcolm X promoted hatred. We have a a government now that is doing everything in their power to kill what Martin Luther King worked for. People look at the phrase “never learned to pick cotton” and some feel that it refers to slavery, but I truly believe he meant work in general. If they had learned to work they wouldn’t be in the position of having to depend on the government for everything. Idle hands are the devil’s workshop. Another thing, I am 72, white, and picked cotton and did anything else to help the family put a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. It sure didn’t hurt me. Some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths and do not know what an honest days work is. Some have just never done an honest days work, period.

    We do not know that snipers were there first. Even if they were if they had meant harm it would have happened, before all those people ever had time to collect. Many of those people were also armed. Did it occur with anyone that the snipers came to protect those collecting the cattle? Now, I must say again, both sides were wrong in how this was handled and fortunately, no one got hurt. But, Bundy needs to do the right thing and take care of the fees.

    You’re right – the federal government did not need to show up with armed paramilitary units, snipers, spotters, and overhead air support. Not a single Oath Keeper would have shown up if the feds hadn’t gone all “Ruby Ridge Meets Waco Waiting to Happen” on ol’ Cliven Bundy.

    Sorry – I believe the militia was right to put a show of force on the ground in Nevada. It serves as a message.

  • derek

    I love this, “I stand with Bundy”, or “I don’t stand with bundy” but if you are typing this then you are most likely not “standing with bundy”. So be default you and Glenn are on the same ship. I’m sorry but this ‘getting our country back’ idea isn’t going to happen by having a philosophical debate. The reason why PBO has wrecked our country and has changed it is he did something. The truth of the matter is simple,no one will do anything that is inconvenient to their lifestyle. So this notion of a ‘peaceful revolution’ really translates to doing nothing. The exits are coming to an end on this road – if nothing is done nothing will be done. Voting them out? Ya right. Doesn’t matter who you vote for just who counts the votes. It’s not like me or anyone I’ve heard has this grand plan too. The strongest don’t survive, it’s the ones that can adapt to changes the best.

    If what you wrote is true, I mean about the Federal Government owning specific land, then Bundy stands innocent of NOT paying grazing fees to the BLM.

    I don’t think it is time for force, but I don’t buy this absolutist crap either. We the people have to draw a line somewhere.

    My line is this: when the government starts imprisoning or bankrupting people for dissent, or for engaging in pro-liberty politics, then it’s time to fight.

    The present IRS scandal, if they don’t back down, may very well cross this line.

    The problem I had with beck and why I canceled the subscription (which I had with him shortly have he started his new network) was not his position on the bundy situation, but the fact that he did the same thing the liberal media does and used bundy’s words out of context and called the comments racist when they were not. They were definitely racial, but not racist. You may not like the metaphor used or the rhetorical question used, but an honest media would have given the full context and pointed out what they appeared to be in fact a metaphor and rhetorical in nature. You could have then disagreed with the use of them without framing him as being a racist.

    I think I’m slow on understanding your intent.

    I agree with Bundy and his supporters, and think Glenn (along with the rest of the “righty” media) has sold himself cheaply (and foolishly), I don’t understand your citation of paragraph 17 in regard to Darral’s post, because (as I read it,) it would appear to indicate that the feds can proceed lawfully, which conclusion I find an affront to the dignity of public land usage. This would appear to be reinforced by paragraph 18.

    That said, I’m no legal scholar.

    Please help clarify your citation for me? I’m sincere in my desire to learn and understand; the link below is for the current posting at senate.gov, which is where I read the particulars.

    Glenn, I’m all for peace whenever possible. We’ve already seen what happens when you try to do things peacefully. The govt does what they want and could care less what you or anyone else thinks about it, including breaking the law. While you stand with MLK and his ways, I believe I’ll follow one of the greatest presidents we’ve ever had, Ronald Reagan, and believe in peace through strength. The govt has pushed this, not the people. We tried and we tried and each time we failed. There is no compromise with this administration and they intend to roll over every citizen they can. Some of us are tired of being cast aside as peasants and only through strength will they understand they have gone too far.

  • Gattagirl

    I don’t agree with what the government did, but Bundy escalated things when he could have resolved it in the courts. It didn’t need to turn into some Wild West showdown. Both sides are wrong. I just don’t see why everyone is piling on Glenn. He’s the only one who has made sense during this whole thing. Alex. Jones is totally looney and anyone who follows him down his rabbit hole needs to really have a reality check.

    Patrick Henry’s Speech to the Virginia House of Burgess, Richmond, Virginia March 23, 1775

    No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope that it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen, if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.

    This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?

    For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth—to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?

    Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation—the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?

    No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.

    We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.

    Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.

    Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.

    If we wish to be free—if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending—if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

    They tell us, sir, that we are weak—unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

    The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!

    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!”—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    It was more than 60 Agents – all armed and dressed in tactical gear – before 1 supporter of Mr. Bundy arrived. The Agents were watching the Bundy family and supporters through sniper scopes – and not one supporter of Mr. Bundy ever pointed or aimed a Federal “Agent” with any firearm. What the Federal Agents were doing would be considered “Assault with a Deadly Weapon” or criminal “Threatening” had anyone else done it. Glen usually makes the mistake of thinking that there are no “bad” people in the Government. He should have looked into the cases of the other ranchers that were driven out of business. One Federal judge said the BLM was involved in an ongoing criminal conspiracy – and Glen doesn’t know anything about it. His two laughing Hyena sidekicks were calling Bundy “A complete and total racist” while Glen was getting ready to speak at the NRA leadership convention. What a bunch of phony liars.

  • Mike Nelson

    The gov escalated when they took personal property (several times) without legal authority, disregarded states’ rights, blocked FIA requests, and when Holder, the Biggest Lawyer in America, stonewalled and showed contempt for Congress, ultimately insulting them. Harry Reid caused this conflict with 0bama and Holder backing him up. The [Statist] media inflamed the situation with grossly biased reporting.

    This didn’t turn into the WW showdown you shrilly refer to only because there were enough patriots, enough citizens, enough willing peacemakers present, that the gov’t didn’t escalate yet again. And yes, amongst that group there were bad actors, and those are the ones we see in the news – is that a surprise?

    What court have you faith in that would resolve this fairly, or even quickly? In good faith I ask you: are you paying attention to the events of the last 10 years?

    We’re still being stonewalled on getting information from F&F, save for heavily redacted and nearly useless documents.

    Glenn, what you did that has so many of us upset is that you’re lying and accusing Bundy of RACISM, which he was not guilty of. You slandered the man and you were wrong. You’re falsely accusing us, once again, of being at odds with you because we want a violent overthrow and you don’t. That’s just BS and more deceitful excuses from you. You owe Bundy an apology….he didn’t say one thing that wasn’t true. You’re just being all PC goofy now.

  • Christopher White

    So Glenn wants us all to be peaceful “and just go to jail” if the law is against us. This is the delusional thinking of an idiot. The men at Lexington and Concord did not follow the law and then sit down and wait to be shot or bayoneted by Government soldiers. We should not initiate violence, and Bundy, his supporters (armed or unarmed) and even Alex Jones have NOT called for initiating violence. What they have said is that they will defend themselves. I doubt Glenn’s armed bodyguards/security staff would just stand by while Glenn was assaulted no matter who it was. It is good to remember that nearly all of the atrocities committed against the Jews in Germany were lawful. Just because it is the law, doesn’t make it right.

  • Micah Chastain

    I listened to the whole tape, after I found out there was another part that had not been played. Taken in that context, his comments are much less ‘despicable’, because it’s obvious he is only trying to compare the plantation slavery of the past to the current slavery, where the government has placed all poor and minorities in economic chains. Many blacks are finally waking up to this, and Bundy was simply comparing the two forms of slavery, if people listened to what he was saying. Granted, he’s not the most educated nor the most eloquent, and he’s also of another generation where the word “Negro” was commonly used without being offensive, just as whites are often called “Caucasians.” But I got the point, and I certainly didn’t see the ‘racism’ that other people claim to see. It has just been another way the news media and the leftists can keep stirring up a division between the races, or economic levels – anything to divide…

    Glenn wanted a peaceful resolution.. guess what it happened. yes there were some agitators in the crowd.. they were kept for the most part in check, as for the Bundy Family, and their close friends and some new ones, all had prayers, most went to the gate sat am unarmed, and yes there were armed citizens behind them, it was a balence of power, to deter violence by the BLM who had orders to kill anyone who came to get the cattle, Glenn, much prayer during the day, nights, events,, and continues today, for peace, and to be left alone. Thats what the Bundy story is, many miracles have taken place at their ranch, Glenn. you did jump on poor information, and theblaze has done a poor job actually learning all the facts, not just the surface stuff all the normal media was spewing. then the race comments, that were not at all racist.. you jumped on that one with poor / bad or incorrect information. Guess this is a lesson to check facts before your whole team speaks. As for peaceful marches, etc. peaceful protests.. they have happened, as for redresses in courts, to change law, or to have your voice heard.. lets see 53 ranchers rights were threatened back in the late 1980′s, the Fed Court Ruled in Favor of the Ranchers of Nevada, the BLM/EPA Gov types got up walked out of court stating they had no juristiction over them. then they proceeded to wait, shop around fo rjudges and use the 9th circus court to write the new judgements ujpon the ranchers or now we should say the Last one Left, you see the other 52 played the blm rules games and all were forced out of business. Bundy’s see the writting on the wall, over 20+ years of trying to get the case heard in a NON Bias Fed Court, other ranchers tell of the courts ignoring all their defence / evidences and only listening to Feds BLM/ EPA. so rigged courts. You said the 1st Revolution vs Britian was over 20yrs in the making.. guess what BLM & EPM & other fed agencies and like state/local thuggery out of control Gov has been destroying business, families, for over 50yrs.. I think we have waited a very long time patiently waiting for help, that never comes, and they are run over by the feds who have all power, control. And make the rules to benifit them only. Remember the battle of Athens? this is similar only no one got shot. It is a miracle that the Feds stood down, all the Bundy boys, unarmed from age 16 up, on their horses on the front like Sat am, where specifically targeted by blm shooters, pointed out to be the 1st killed. Then there was the old Russian man who stood, walked forward holding the American Flag, his reason is he is a friend of the family, and he came from Russia/USSR, and this is America and he could not believe such tyrannical action was happening here. He said if anyone is to die this day let him be the 1st. Why? not for grazing fees, but to stand and look Armed and deadly tryanny in the face, and plant your standard and say No More! That is what is happening. Bundy’s want peace more than the feds do, but they also want to be left alone, and the nation to return to the laws of the constitution that they the feds have bastardized for power/greed/ intent to destroy our liberty. Yes there are secret combinations in the promised land of my ancestors today. Your a busy person with all your stuff your dealing with, however what took place during / after the stand down by a show of equal force, peacefully ended what could have been another Waco, Ruby Ridge where Americans were murdered by rogue feds. thats why people went to their aide, if I had had the fuel to go I would have the friday evening before the stand down, you see, we Americans have tried the courts, the laws, but when the enemy controls them, and DC, where do you get redress for evil acts by the Feds? America is getting tired, glade that you finally awoke a few years ago, we / many of us have been awake 20-30-40-+++ Years… and now finally many are awakening to the dangers of our liberties being gone. Yes Glenn many are upset / confused by your companies choosing not to do a acurate reporting on this, after all It took me a construction worker all but 10 minutes to find all the truth, sifting through some of the trash news to get it, but it was there, your staff’s must have been lazy, or just unwilling to find the truth, I thought that was the meaning of theblaze..? guess not in this case. It is time to stand.. and you choose to agree with those who created the news vs reporting it, your team was used by the darkerside of news, hook, line, sinker, Alynski.. yep.. they have divided..

    Bundy’s case was decided by the court before they got to court; I am truly amazed at the number of people who have faith in Americas court system; It don’t matter whether it be local state or federal the courts are the government; the courts in this respect are lawless and corrupt; you don’t win any cases in court against the Government; Americas judicial system is referred to as the CRIMINAL justice system for a Reason; case in point Texas rancher lost his land which he not only has title and deed to but a loan against it and still had to pay for the land the Government ceased; If these Cases were to go before a jury of American citizens both Bundy and the Texas rancher would win their cases hands down; Remember in cases such as this with the Government ceasing the land, the Government would require all 12 members of the Jury to decide in their favor; the Bundy’s and Texas Rancher only need one. The lawless corrupt courts of the Government won’t let a Jury decide the cases;

    The federal courts are corrupted in the same way as the government. That should be obvious to anybody who wonders why the courts have always refused to hear any of the cases claiming Obama has illegally gained the office of President. BLM took advantage of the western states that never took appropriate legal action to affirm their ownership of property once they became a state. The feds never owned the land – they only ‘assumed’ management of it, and tried to make a contract with all the ranchers. BLM has already put out of business the other 52 ranchers in Clark County. Bundy’s ranch is the only one left. These western states are finally getting it together to legally claim the land they should have explicitly claimed when they attained statehood. After they do that, they should have no more interference from the BLM (which is a foreign corporation based in Puerto Rico.that contracts with our govt).

  • Micah Chastain

    That is correct. The only violence came from the BLM tazing, wrestling people to the ground, destroying structures on the Bundy property, and killing 2 prize bulls and numerous cattle, by shooting them from the helicopters like some kind of fun game. The Bundys are still missing 37 head of cattle. Most were buried in huge pits dug by the BLM backhoe. They chose to invade during calving season, which resulted in many of the moms and calves getting separated and then dying. These people are cold-blooded killers.

    RESOLVED, That this resolution becomes effective upon passage and approval, except that, notwithstanding any other provision of law, the proposed amendment to the ordinance of the constitution of the State of Nevada, if approved and ratified by the people of the State of Nevada, does not become effective until the Congress of the United States consents to the amendment or upon a legal determination that such consent is not necessary.

    This resolution was not contested by the federal government.

    Furthermore, prior to the above resolution, the federal government could be brought up on charges of breach of contract by the state of Nevada because it failed to sell the lands it held in accordance with the Congressional act of statehood for Nevada.

    The only reason it turned into that ‘wild west showdown’ was that 200 armed contract cowboys from the BLM showed up unannounced on Bundy’s property. Nobody at Bundy’s place had weapons before that, but when they saw the snipers on the hillsides and in the helicopters with their M16′s pointed at them, they decided they needed to be prepared to fight back. What BLM did was absolutely unconscionable – they are cold-blooded killers, as they demonstrated with their horrible mistreatment of the animals.

  • cliff

    I tend to agree with Glenn as far as non-violence is what must be done right now. I believe that as long as there is a chance to take back the country non-violently, we must try it.

    The times were different when Gandhi or MLK advocated non-violence because now we are on the cusp of the Federal Government taking away all our rights, whereas back then some people in each country still had rights and could be swayed. However, I believe that even though we need to be prepared to fight, we must take this last chance to take our country back peacefully. If we use violence now, we’ll look like monsters, and the Federal Government will destroy us. The people will demand it. They will point out people like that joker on the Bundy ranch that was trying to look so intimidating with his AR-15. He looked like a clown – a dangerous, unreasonable, psychopathic clown. People like him will lose us any sympathy that might be gained because of the justice of our cause from the only people who can help, the voters.

    Remember when you say that George Washington fought, that it was only after trying for decades and with no vote, no representation. We can vote the bastards in Washington D.C. out. This is dramatically different.

    If we hitch our wagon to Cliven Bundy, then we should not be aggressive in our protests. Sure, I’m convinced that the BLM backed down because they didn’t want an armed confrontation, but I’m also convinced that it was probably counter productive in the long run because it attracted people who said they might put the women and children in front to be filmed being killed by the BLM. These guys made the protesters look like a bunch of terrorists, not patriots.

    I’m not convinced that the BLM would have backed down if there had been a completely peaceful protest, but it should have been tried first. Cliven Bundy has lost in court, so the BLM had a legal right to remove his cattle from Federal land. However, the fact that the BLM overreacted in dramatic fashion with 200+ armed officers, and the fact that the 50 or so other ranchers have already been driven out and the fact that Harry Reid’s family stood to reap a windfall and the fact that this land should have been Nevada State land could have been brought out with a peaceful protest. Instead, the video of that idiot with the AR-15 and sunglasses trying to look tough was all anyone saw. As soon as he showed up, the patriots lost.

    As long as we have the vote and as long as votes matter, we need to be peaceful and prayerful. If they steal another election, things might change, but let’s not give them that chance. Get people to vote and vote anyone that’s been in congress for more than 2 terms out of office! Remember what Hugh Hewitt said in one of his books. “If it’s not close, they can’t steal it.”

    It says in the article that the government was there doing the roundup, and none of the Bundy supporters were anywhere to be seen. Bundy’s family says there were snipers in the hills around the ranch. You might not believe them, but I don’t see any reason not to. They’re certainly more credible than the feral government. Were they there to protect the scabs stealing Bundy’s cattle? Maybe. But they shouldn’t have been there in the first place and, in absolutely no circumstance should they have been pointing those rifles at that ranch. The government was WRONG. The patriots who stood in defense of their neighbor were RIGHT. And I thank God they were there to defuse the situation before it got government-ugly.

    Glen, you are on the wrong side of the argument. You can still call for a peaceful solution and for cooler heads to prevail, but you should definitely understand that the federal government was wrong and it forced citizens to stand in the only way they know how.

    That’s why we have a second amendment.

    There is a time for peaceful protest, but when someone is coming to violate the sanctity of your private property and to attack you as an individual, you have a right to take a stand, even if you feel it should have been more peaceful.

    America would have NEVER won her independence the first time by peaceful protest. If you check your history and facts, Glen, peaceful protest works for civil change, not for governmental change.

    We may be at the brink of a new revolution and it will not be peaceful.

    Clara tell me what Jesus meant by this: Luke 22:36-38
    “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip:and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors:for the things concerning me have an end. And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”
    In the times of Christ a sword was the deadliest hand held weapon available. What is a sword used for Clara?

    You must get your info about this the same place Glenn did. He did NOT say that blacks were better off as slaves. He was talking (inelegantly) about minorities being part of the government plantation just like Thomas Sowell and Star Parker write about. Get your info right before you make stupid statements. Also, it was not his idea to put women on the front line. It was a statement made by a Sheriff from another state and children were not mentioned. Please, please….get your information straight before you spout off nonsense!

    I agree that there should be a no violence response with the Bundy incident. That would include banning the federal govt. bringing guns to a private citizens home with a threat of violence.

  • Anonymous

    The people at the Bundy Ranch were very peaceful and prayerful about what they were doing. In fact God blessed their efforts with a routing of the enemy when they fled in fear. Those people and the Militia that supported them did exactly what needed to be done in being peaceful but strong and ready. The evidence that they were right is in the fact they prevailed with God’s help. Cowboys with flags is not an assault.

    I admire what MLK did. I admire Glenn’s desire not to jump to violence. I believe he is concerned we are headed for needless destructive violence if we don’t slow it down. But I am with Toaster Crisp. We should avoid violence if at all possible. I pray every day that we will get back to the rule of law and I believe we should do everything possible to use the rule of law to get there. But if our government moves beyond all reason we must be prepared to go to the wall. Too many good men have fought and died for our freedom to do so.

I also think that websites that give readers a place to post comments, leads to a lot of expression of hatred and insults.

    You are exactly right. The majority of oppressors of black Americans from the early days were Democrats. And once they were emancipated, then the Dems began to lie and bribe and deceive. I am baffled as to why so many black Americans fail to see through it. Just look at some of the crazy comments Dems have made that demonstrated their racism and the media didn’t say a word.

    Hello Glenn, did the Obama Administration and Congress pay you, O’Rielly, and Hannity to destroy Cliven Bundy’s credibility by stripping his words out of context? Or did they threaten your careers and livelihoods? it is hard for a rich man to enter gentlemen, and I use gentlemen loosely. Play the entire interview and then STOP THE SPIN. Bundy was making a legitimate comparison between the slavery of old and the new social and economic slavery on the national plantation called the United States of America. He was merely curious if African Americans were any better of now than they were then, and I am not so sure that any of us are. Slavery didn’t end with Lincoln; It simply had the color drained from it! All Americans are slaves now!
    Obama did not lie in the face of every American who listened to him when he said “I want to Fundamentally Change America”, but what did he mean? He really wanted to “fundamentally change” (radically alter) the style of U.S. Federal Government and the entire Economic System in order to benefit the corrupt plantation owners in Washington D.C. and their super rich “gods” (I mean donors). I believe you are all slowly becoming the propaganda lapdogs of your new master, the “Fundamentally Changed” U.S. Government!

You wouldn’t tell the wolf in the hen house to be good and you’ll love him would you? Likewise you can’t tell the BLM to be good guys and put their AR 15′s away if they are body slamming 50 year old women and tazing unarmed men.

    Did anyone hear Judge Jeanine’s commentary on the Bundy affair and Dirty Harry. She essentially said everything that Alex Jones said. To say that Alex Jones is promoting violence is BS. He has always advocated peaceful means if and until citizens are fired upon or they come to take the guns. The stand off ended peacefully. Yes, there were militia there that had fire arms and were there to defend if it came to that. It didn’t. Judge Jeanine also doesn’t buy that the solar panel deal is off the table either. He could not get Bundy’s land for the mitigation area. In addition, Dirty Harry runs Nevada including the Sheriff in Clark County the Las Vegas police, you name it. The Federal Government should not be holding or managing land. My personal opinion is that when Martin Luther King did his protests this Government had not become a complete criminal cartel. These people could care less about protests. I wish it were not true but that is the way I see it. I personally think someone with some money needs to file some Civil Rico lawsuits. They cannot use the 5th and it doesn’t prevent converting to criminal charges. Why don’t take some of your money Glenn and put it where your big mouth is and where it might make a difference!

I am sure they wouldn’t have done it if they had not wanted to…besides those were the calls of the guys at the BLM blockade not Mr. Bundy. You really need to educate yourself rather than sound ouf with no facts. Mr. Bundy was comparing the slave plantations to the slavery of todays government plantation…not saying that either one was “better”. This is much the same thing that has been said by Walter Williams, Bill Cosby and many other blacks.

    For those of you that keep bringing up Ruby Ridge and Waco. Check the facts ! The first shots fired in both cases were fired by the Federal officers there. At Ruby Ridge, Deputy Marshal Arthur Roderick shot and killed Sammy Weavers (Randy’s Son) Golden Retreiver. Sammy Weaver out of emotion seeing his dog killed fired toward where the shot came from, turned and began running back from where he came. Sammy was shot in the back and killed. First shot fired by the GOVERMENT !
    2nd Waco. We have seen the video of the cattle trailers being pulled up in front of the compound. When they pulled up in front, David Koresh opened the front door holding his two year old daughter and nothing else. ATF Agent Steve Willis opened fire on David immedietly. Wounding David in the side and hitting his daughter in the chest, killing her instantly. Again, FIRST SHOT – THE GOVERMENT !
    All events listed here are from court or official records.
    So, what would the Feds have done to the Bundy’s if the supporters had not shown up ? The above incidents are why the people showed up. They did not want to see another family killed by the feds.
    By the way, The reason the weavers were sought, Randy was accused of selling two shotguns that were to short in the overall length required by the ATF. Barrel lengths were legal, the stocks were cut to short.
    David was charged with many things which of course he can not defend because he was cremated by the Goverment.

    I don’t disagree with you. I didn’t like Clinton, but in his second term, he had a Republican congress;and they worked together, to his credit. It was one of the best times in current history. There was actually a surplus in the treasury. One of the first things Bush did was give every citizen a $200 rebate. That $200 wasn’t enough to help anyone. Then he plunged us into two wars, and we needed every cent of the money he gave away…plus billions. I was never his fan. But even with the scenario you quoted, do you truly believe that the three men you mentioned, the “RHINOS,” would be as bad as what we now have? The out-of-control EPA, the justices Obama has appointed, his total lack of leadership in any area that matters, the AHC disaster, the escalation of racial unrest with his encouragement, the lies, his Chicago cronies in just about every level of his administration, etc, etc? Yes, I would love to see men and women of principle, with moral courage to do the right thing, in every elected office. My fear is that what is left of the Republican party will be divided against itself, leaving the government open to a socialist/communistic government for the next fifty years. I have Cuban friends who fear the same thing. They saw it happen in their country when they were young, barely escaping with a baby boy and the clothes on their backs. If this country cannot keep its Constitution intact, there is no place else to go….Perhaps I have read too many books, seen too many years and wars go by, witnessed this country turn its collective back on decency and law, seen too many generations throw away discipline of themselves and their children….I still cling to hope, but I’m afraid that I have seen the best of this country,….unless something or Someone intervenes. I’m afraid that Noah Webster’s quote has already come to pass. I truly do appreciate your comments, and I pray that I am proved wrong….

    I have been listening to Beck since he was on CNN… but after this, calling the Patriots that stood with Cliven Bundy the “right’s occupy wall street” and then trying to read his comments as being racist.. I cut ties with him… like he asked us to do. I am a Conservative Jew..and I do not believe that God wants us to sit by and not fight for the cause of justice.. there are too many scriptures that command that we fight for the needy, oppressed and righteousness.
    There has been too many examples in history were there was only the option to face tyranny with battle.. this does not mean that you are a violent person.
    The forefathers of our great nation did it in the Revolutionary War, people had to fight in WWII otherwise the European continent would have been Jew free..and who knows what other groups would have been killed out of existence too..
    No one likes war and confrontation.. it happens when evil grows too much, and we cannot sit by and just wait .. God commanded the Israelites in the Bible to sometimes strike their enemies preemptively..
    There is a time for peace and a time for war…. we will pray to God to strengthen our arms and protect the innocent.. but we must not sit by and watch our Republic die.

    I would concur.. we have been with Beck since CNN.. but he seems to be insulted when people do not agree with him 100%.. and I did not like that he attacked people for believing that Obama’s birth certificate was invalid. I am also upset that he will not address the fact that Obama is a Muslim.. and this is very dangerous in my book.

I, a long time avid fan of yours, haven’t heard anyone except you talking about violence. What are we to believe when you came out several months ago and said “I am fed up!” “I WILL NOT COMPLY!” “Stand Up”. But now you change your mind, deflect the conversation to a non-issue of Bundys attitude towards black people. I am reacting to your brutal attack on the man personally. Why? Too your fans and followers it looks like you have joined the ranks of those spinning this story into something it is not. I think an apology to Bundy and to us may be in store.

    Maybe this will help you .. there are times to turn the other cheek, but there are times that you must stand up..

    Just to offer a little perspective.. Yeshua (Jesus) came to reaffirm the Old Testament not to replace it… with this in mind… Yeshua knew the Jews would understand where the Old Testament says “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” etc… that this would be still used… because Yeshua did not come to change this.
    What Yeshua did do is offer the Jews perspective that there are times to “turn the other cheek” knowing full well that God commanded earlier to repay injustice with “eye for an eye”. The Jewish people would need to be able to decipher what punishment fit the crime.. and also take into account what God and His son taught them.
    In fact, throughout the Biblical account of history, the Jewish people were commanded to strike at their enemies, sometimes even preemptively.

    2) Throwing Bundy under the bus. Regardless of his views on race, he was 100% RIGHT on principle. Even Judge Napolitano agrees, the Constitution does not allow the fed to own that land.

    3) Hates his audience and attacks them.

    Glenn you used to always says “Do your own research, Don’t take my word for it.” Well, Glenn, we DID, and you are wrong on this issue. No one who is standing for Bundy has been violent or wants violence with the govt. But we will no longer comply with a corrupt govt. YOU used to preach that same concept. “Spit yourselves out of the system.” Well, Bundy did that 20 years ago because his own govt was trying to run him out of business.

    No one needed Alex Jones to say anything about you. YOU are the one who established your reputation. You reinforced it this morning when you delivered the message above. You cave in like a freshman congressman.
    Did you notice that Thoreau didn’t make any impact on slavery? That took the WAR of secession. The only reason the government worked with MLK is that the alternative was to work with the Black Panthers. Yeah, MLK encouraged nonviolent means but when innocent bystanders were attacked for MLK’s effrontery a group of black Southerners called the Deacons for Defense are the ones who saved them and made the ‘authorities’ reconsider their tactics.
    http://civilliberty.about.com/od/guncontrol/a/Deacons-for-Defense.htm
    And the guns and cameras in the background are the only reason the authorities found the good sense to talk to soft-spoken Clive. It’s all about giving the bullies choices. They need to see what is best for them in Technicolor. (Do they negotiate with the reasonable people or get in a shooting war with the hotheads? Well, let’s see…this is going to be on TV…and it’s not going to be JUST our story…these guys have cameras and internet. Maybe we should negotiate with Clive.)

    Glenn, I can understand you are afraid of violence but you must remember we have a government that is no longer working for the benefit of the people but for its self. We have a President who makes laws and chooses which laws he will obey along with a Attorney General who also decides which laws to obey and to enforce. We have government agencies which we never voted or gave them the authority deciding laws they can make and enforce. Please show me where we voted to give any of these the power over the people in place of the people over them as was intended. I too would wish that not one shot be fired but I know that this may not be possible. The government is not the owner of any land in this country. It belongs to the states and to the people. I remember a time when other people during a time of government take over also just said let us be peaceful and not show violence or threats and all will be ok. It took a world war and over 6 million dead of those same people before it all ended. I will not let that happen again and if it means my life to make sure your grand children live in a free country and not have to fear its own government then let it be so. There have been too many men die to keep this from happening. The government has become the enemy even if you do not think so. I’m sorry but we must stand or let the government take all. We then become wards of the government and we would have to live or die as they please. A man once said “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”. It may be time to once again to feed the tree of liberty with the blood of freedom. I pray not but it will be the government not the people who will start this war again as in the past. I too am afraid but I am more afraid of our government. Glenn, it is not the time to preach peace. That has passed I think. The time has come for you to quit trying to be on the fence and decide which side you are on. You don’t have to encourage anyone to fire a shot but you must say it is or it is not time to take back our freedom and our country. The ballet box has been stolen so where does that leave you? I hope you will decide that you were wrong but if not then that too is okay and your right under a free country. I along with the ones who have died before will give you that freedom with our blood if needed. They will have to do something before November as they know that people are waking up and they may lose some of their powers over us. I will pray that next year I will remember what I have written and think of how wrong I was and not a shot was fired.

    beck still speaks highly of Romney.
    tea partiers need to quit lying – say one thing and do another – say they are anti-estab but show love/support for rinos like Romney/Rubio/rice/Bolton/Krauthammer/dana parino, etc..

    In all of history and scripture there are two paths the honorable and righteous leader can choose. One is the martyr’s path; it is a holy path, an honored path. Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Joseph and Hyrum Smith, Christs Apostles and Christ himself were called by God and chosen to walk this path sealing their testimonies with their own blood. The martyr does not intend to die but that is his fate and he leaves a great example for humanity. They lifts us all by standing in peace against great evil with an example of love like that of Christ.

    There is a second holy path, the holy warrior’s path. Some are called by God and chosen to walk the warrior’s path and defend the innocent and the pacifist with their very lives. It is a hard path for the danger of becoming like those you stand against is ever present and real. You face true evil and fight the demons within your own soul at the same time. Without these brave guardians the light of the world would have ceased to shine long ago for only the warrior, not the martyr, has preserved Gods message in the darkest of times. Where holy warriors do not stand history teaches us that evil and tyranny has reined among men. They are the help of the helpless, the strength of the week, and the hand of a just God. KIng David (who lost his soul), Joshua, Joan of Arc, 1st Nephi, and Capt. Moroni (from LDS scripture) George Washington, and many on the battle fields of WWII: warriors all who suffered much and sacrificed all that others might worship in peace.

    I propose to you that one path is not more virtuous than the other, one man not more justified than the other for they serve the same God but in different ways. They establish the cause of honor, righteousness and peace, but in different ways according to the need at hand. An honorable man of God can be called to serve as either a martyr or a holy warrior and the world has had, and will continue to have, great need of both. . Sadly true Martyrs and true Warriors of honor are both lamentably rare. Glenn has marked his path, may he be up to the task.

    I don’t know what Tea Partiers you are referring to, but none that I know supported McCain or Romney during the primaries. But most of us voted for them in the Election, because either one of them was better than the alternative that we are stuck with now. And if they’re going to run Jeb Bush in 2016, we won’t support him, either.,, but I’m sure we’ll vote for him against any Democrap.

    How was Dietrich Bonhoeffer a peaceful protester? Wasn’t he jailed for conspiracy to assassinate Hitler? Sometimes being violent in defense of your fellow man is the MORAL thing to do. Whether it is out of anger or moral indignation, it does not matter. The message of Jesus loving your enemy doesn’t mean you don’t defend against your enemy’s physical attacks. Jesus told His disciples to sell their clothes if they did not have a sword to defend themselves. This is not being “hateful” or “angry.” Luke 22:36-38

    I agree that some of the people who came to Bundy’s defense were VERY angry and were spouting hateful words. This should not discredit the cause by the words of a few. It is very clear that the US Gov is intent on grabbing land now (i.e., TX / OK border), and the result is NO cattle ranchers left in Clark County Nevada. Maybe, Glenn, you should discuss this issue with other cattle ranchers who have or are going through the same thing (SEE http://youtu.be/XoX_DhFfMfk)

  • Mike

    Yes – Glenn went on the story that was in the NYSLIME before he ever verified the story. In addition, he is attacking another talk host.

    I have often asked myself this question. Where would Mr. Bundy’s cattle be if those people had not showed up? I think we all know the answer to that but in case you do not I can tell you. They would be in a whole in the ground. I have read Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 until I am blue in the face and I can not make it come out any other way except that it does not give the Federal government the right to ownership or control of that land. I have also read three Supreme court decision that back that up. Only in the last few decades has the courts stomped all over the Constitution on this matter. I have no problem with public land but that public land should be in the hands of the rightful owners which are the states. Our founders knew what would happen if you allowed the government to own and control the land in the states. They knew the government could hold the states hostage so this is why they wrote Clause 17. In that Clause they were bending over backwards to see that this did not happen. No one is going to change my mind on this. I took an oath to defend the Constitution and that I will do and I do not care how unpopular it becomes. I am the last one who wants to see violence. Lord knows I have seen enough in my life time but as I said I will defend our Constitution until the end.

    So please, Glenn, tell me again about the Battle of Athens. Tell me how they were wrong, and should have just linked up arm-in-arm to get those ballot boxes back. And tell me how they should have just appealed to the DOJ just one more time to rectify the corruption. I’m confused, as you sure didn’t sound so condemning of those veterans’ approach in your Miracles and Massacres book.

    “If these people wanted Violence every federal agent there would be dead;”
    This is a true statement. Very well put. My guess is Patriots will never fire the first shot. But if the government ever steps over the line which I pray they do not then all you know what will break loose. Glen needs to stop worrying so much. It will take a lot for the people to act and I mean a lot but if they ever do act it will not be nice.

    Yes Celeste, you have hit the nail on the head and I think this is exactly what Glenn is saying. He himself is led to take the peaceful path. He is willing to give his life, wordly goods, and sacred honor in order to bring liberty to every American. That is his calling from God. At the same time he has come to understand that every human being is made differently and he will not question or love that person any less. It is not his call. He is giving it all over to God.

    Malcom X thought his calling was to bring about mass chaos and violence to further the rights of blacks. His way did not bring civil rights to black Americans and he later changed his opinion.

    Mike, In General Washington’s time the British fought with guns and the Patriots fought with guns. Can you say the same today? Think about it. Do you have a satellite that can take pictures of a battlefield? Night vision?

    We live in a country that has a corrupt federal government bent on destroying America as we know it and actually pay them to do it. It has gone too far to think we can overcome them by ourselves without God’s Help!

    Everyone of us was born at this time for His purpose.

    NONE of us has the right to condemn anyone else for following their heart. Just as Glenn has talked about.

    Legally according to Clause 17 the government can not own more than “Ten miles square” in any one spot for forts, magazines, naval ports and to purchase that Ten miles square they have to have the approval of the state legislator in the state in which they want to purchase. Our founders were trying to stop what has happened in Nevada and Alaska which is government control of land.

  • Anonymous

    Martin Luther King was not going up against an usurping group of tyrants in our government. An out of control faction within our government intent on putting every person under the thumb of tyrants like Reid, etc.. MLK was out to change the hearts of the common people, to accept true equality for all people.

    There is a BIG difference between then and now. There is a BIG difference between working for human equality between people and putting down a monstrous, insidious, power-grabbing, group of tyrannical overseers in our government that is intent on subduing us, making us subservient, controlling our every actions, including our God-given Rights, for their personal and financial benefit.

    To us, Glenn Beck seems to be living in the past and seems to be trying to apply the tactics of winning hearts to the job of showing overbearing tyrants in our government “we will not comply”! But that is his choice.

    I do agree that violence is not the answer, but, it may be the necessary path to the solution of throwing off the tyrants. A “tool” to achieve our rightful freedoms, as it was in our first revolution. Malcolm-X was intent on a hate-filled racial violence and was most certainly wrong. That hatred is NOT our way.

    We should ALWAYS try marching hand-in-hand for a peaceful solution, we should ALWAYS stand firm, BUT, if they come against us with armament such as Waco, Ruby Ridge, or the Bundy Ranch we NEED to be prepared to DEFEND our rights. Not with anger, not with bitterness, but with determination to be a free people with God-given unalienable Rights. And by using the essence of the Second Amendment as a last resort.

    Glenn, your path is your God-given Right of choice. You, and all of us, need to remember that we are all given different gifts, or talents. You NEED to know your path is not necessarily our path. Just because you think our path is wrong, does not make it so. It just makes it different.

    The courts are the problem. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 makes it very clear that the government can not own states. Clause 17 was backed up by the Supreme Court on three different occasions early on. Then in the last few decades the Supreme Court has stomped all over Clause 17. The courts do not always do the right thing especially in the last few decades. If people were not so high on the second amendment the courts would have stomped it long ago. Even on the Bundy ranch they stomped on the first amendment. You could only speak in certain places. Since when do you have to stand in a certain spot to use your first amendment rights?

    King’s tactics worked on Whites because Whites were already weak and sentimental. Btw, King was a Communist not a Patriot. He hated America but he understood the best way to bring us down was to use high falutin words, guilt, and non-violence. Indeed he complained about how much restraint was shown by Southern sheriffs. I remind you that Communists aren’t committed to non-violence – it was merely tactical. As for Christianity, he was Christian just like Obama is – not very if at all.

    According to the law since 1845, when a territory becomes a state, the Federal Governemnt is to surrender all claims.
    They chose to ignore this. In 1980 Reagan tried again to get them to comply.
    Even Judge Napolitano said, our constitution is designed so the Federal Government is not to own lands.
    According to Bundy’s daughter, she said the grand father paid for the grazing, mineral and waters rights in 1877, decades before the BLM. In 1973, the BLM went to the ranchers wanting their piece of the pie. A rate was agreed on, with the stipulation the fees were to help the land and ranchers. Two decades later, the BLM broke that gentleman’s agreement and started using those very fees to force the ranchers out. Out of 53, Bundy is the last man standing. He said he paid the county and state, as they are the true owners to the land. He said he basically fired the BLM because they stopped working for the ranchers. The same as any businessman would do.
    That question was a plant and of course the slimy editing. This was a distraction Reid needed badly to deflect from all the swarms deals he has going on with his son, obtaining lots of land for China and other big investors around the area.
    Just last week he was caught on film at a ground breaking in the area, man handling a shovel.
    People, wake up, they are doing this all over the country. They are going after private land with water in it. They know if they control the water, they control us.

    Glenn you still don’t get it. It was a peaceful protest. No one was hurt. We, the protestors never threatened to shoot at the BLM even though they said they would shoot. You carry a gun, your wife and children have been trained in fire arms. You have body guards. Why if you are the peaceful man that you say you are. Would you use them if someone broke into your home and threatened to take your possessions and possibly your lives?

    I am frustrated because I don’t believe you understand the issues that the Bundy’s stand for. It’s not about cows or grazing rites. It’s not just about the over reach of government. It is mostly about the trampling under feet of the Constitution of the United States.

    Darral did a pretty good job of explaining things but the best explanation I have heard and the best lesson on the Constitution came from Ryan Bundy. He not only explained the history of the U.S. Constitution but also it’s relationship to the Nevada Constitution.

    Talk to Ryan, keep your mouth shut and listen to the words that come out of the mouth of babes (the Bundys). I have gotten to know them over the last three weeks. They are not the racists that you say they are. You totally misunderstand them.

    In my puny little mind they are HEROS. And they need to be understood.

    Please talk to Ryan Bundy and all this hate that you talk about will go away.

    We have not attacked Glenn for his “nonviolent response to Bundy conflict” but we are almost all still painted by Glenn and his staff with this “violent” label.

    I ask again Glenn (or staff reading this) WHAT VIOLENCE!!!!

    BTW I have done PSD work, both CONUS and OCONUS, and will say Glenn’s PSD Detail does not likely have a “lock arms and preach love” response if their principal (Glenn or his family) were threatened or attacked.

  • Locked Semaphore

    It is totally irrelevant wither Bundy is a raciest or not. Do we to believe that it is ok for him to be abused at the hands of the federal government if he is a raciest? It’s getting very easy in this country to “ban” someone from their legal rights simply by accusing them of not having the correct political views. It’s very difficult for Bundys opponents to justify what the BLM did. So instead they attack his character, label him a raciest and thereby run off his supporters through the use of fear tactics.

    Donald had the militia not shown up armed and snarling through clinched teeth, any protest would have been squelched by tazers and batons.

    Ok, I just waded through the entire 17 minutes of Glenn reading long passages from Malcolm X and Gandhi and yabbering about non-violent resistance. While Glenn confessed that he was a flawed individual several times during the soliloquy, he didn’t disavow the fact that he continues to side with Harry Reid and the BLM. Does he still believe that Bundy and his supporters should have laid down their arms and let Agenda 21 roll right over them? Why does Glenn support the Second amendment at all, if the Bundy situation was not worthy of resistance against governmental overreach?

    Glenn’s speech was useless. Alex Jones is the true voice of the libertarian movement. Soon enough, Glenn will exit radio in favor of making movies.

    This is my problem. Glenn has said he knows is audience He considers us his friends. If he truly feels this way, he would have known his audience was not racing to the Bundy ranch with arms. While, I do believe in his message of love and peace, his delivery was wrong. He sounded unhinged. He sounded like the Farrakan of the right. If he knows his audience, he would know he does not have to speak to us like we are morons. He wants to be like Martin Luther King Jr. I never heard Martin Luther King Jr. sound like a madman when he was trying to get his message across.

    Glenn, comparing yourself to great people does not make you any better than you are. It only makes you look like you are trying to come up with an excuse without actually having one.

    Your stand on the whole Bundy Ranch thing has been boggling, to say the least. Plenty of other people in the comments have pointed out the reasons why.

    I find it very strange that you jumped on the “racism” bandwaggon without looking into things deeper, though. I wonder if you actually listened to all of what he said, and tried to understand the comparison he was making. I also wonder if you will be man enough to admit if you didn’t. Like you said, you’re a flawed guy… we’re all flawed. Realizing a mistake and correcting it (or apologizing for it) will make things better. Refusing to admit that you are not correct does not help anything.

    Sadly, I am of the opinion that the only reason you took this route on both of these issues is because Alex took the right route, and you didn’t want to appear to be the same as him. Foolish pride? Maybe.

    I do not think it’s appropriate to attack a private citizen. Bundy, like the most of us out here gets a microphone in his face, makes a statement, and gets a reprimand and called a racist by the conservative media. I got what he said, even though it wasn’t refined. That’s who we are out here. We watch and listen to “You Guys” as an equal. Obviously, we are not. Comparing oneself to a great leader is a little creepy, Glenn. I think that is an honor others would give to someone.

    Exactly…I find myself screaming at the TV and radio. This man said the same thing that Beck and Hannity have said but not as elegantly. No one looked at the context they simply picked at the individual words and went nuts. This week has been a week of people going nuts – it is more than a slippery slope. When the NBA owner has a ruling that he must sell his team due to comments he made in the privacy of his home we are no longer in America. Imagine the outrage if Rev Wright was told he had to give up his church when he said gd America! As Americans we have the right to stop attending, to stop buying from, to stop working for, people and companies we disagree with. That’s how we shape the country – not by shutting down speech we disagree with. One day it could be Glenn being locked up, shut down, forced to sell his business. To hear that the Supreme Court did not intervene in the law passed by Congress, signed by the President allowing the indefinite detention of Americans without due process it makes it even more frightening. This Administration considers Glenn, Mr. Bundy, and all “tea party” conservatives “terrorists”. If we don’t stand up against this aggression now, we will lose America. It may already be to late given that most seem completely oblivious to, or complacent with what is happening.

    The ten miles square is referring to the area which would become the seat of government, i.e. Washington, DC. Any other areas needed for forts, arsenals, magazines, dockyards, etc. must be approved by the state “in which the same shall be”. The clause is clearly split into two parts. The ten miles square limitation is only referring to the first part.

  • jarhead996

    Glenn, you’re not making a very clear connection between MLK and the Bundy Ranch situation. Bundy is a peaceful guy, by all accounts, but refuses to be bullied and pushed around. You say we should lock arms and stand. OK, that sounds good in theory, but what does that mean in practice? When the BLM brings snipers and M16′s into the situation, is it not only logical to bring your own means of self defense? Should those cattlemen and militia have gone in unarmed and defenseless? What would that have accomplished? They would have been ineffective at best. And when you take into account the things that happened at Ruby Ridge and Waco, it is only natural to be prepared for the worst. This isn’t an exact parallel to the circumstances that MLK and others were in. The whole point of the 2nd Amendment is for a situation exactly like the Bundy Ranch situation. If that’s not what the 2nd Amendment is precisely for, then I don’t know what is.

  • AG Dot Com!

    It is within here:

    To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings

    The government has zero mandate to even “own” national parks. They certainly have no mandate to own hundreds of thousands of acres of open land.

    the leftists are dividing us to start violence, the leftists will not stop until violence among us starts, we will not no matter how hard the leftists try to make us, start that violence. it’s the leftists who will start the violence, we have to be prepared to defend ourselves, we cannot defend ourselves if we leave our guns at home. non-violent armed protests are necessary to put the fear of the people back into the government. we have the 2nd amendment to keep the government in line, not for the government to force us to fall in line. peace can only exist when both sides want peace, the leftists don’t want peace. we have no choice but to defend ourselves at all times, if we don’t we will become slaves.

    Based on the sentiment expressed by the vast majority here, I suggest you all form a new party of armed rebellion. You might want to develop a platform other than “we are mad at the Federal government” if you want to succeed. You might want to weigh the consequences of breaking laws, court orders etc. in a society of laws that is based on the US Constitution. When you declare the actions of a Federal agency (or state or local) to be wrong, unfounded in law or unconstitutional, you might want to at least get an unbiased, non-fanatical legal opinion to back you up before you decide to take or fire the first bullet. Bundy’s interpretation of the law has been rejected by conservative republican Judges repeatedly; a unanimous Supreme Court under Rehnquist upheld the regulations that Bundy does not recognize. Perhaps you can join forces with those who believe a federal income tax is unconstitutional; they certainly have been successful through the years.

  • ken.

    the government you are talking about has been unconstitutionally ignoring laws they don’t like to step on we the people. the government you are talking about are unconstitutionally bypassing congress and writing their own laws to step on we the people. the government you are talking about are unconstitutionally destroying and stealing our constitutional rights from us. the government you are talking about is unconstitutionally taking powers away from we the people and giving it to themselves. the government you are talking about are breaking our laws and constitution to steal our country and our freedom from us. this country belongs to we the people and we the people will do whatever is needed to keep what rightfully belongs to us. if you wish to be a slave to the government, move to a communist country.

    Chad, What didnt you get with my makiing fun of Glenn calling Bundy “a Crazy Soveriegn Citizen”. I voted for Ron Paul. I was one of the so called “Crazy” people that back before the election was standing both with Beck and Ron Paul. I turned away from Beck when he started demonizing Ron Paul Supporters as all crazy. I was being sarcastic

    I see also that jarhead reads the paragraph the same way I did(/do?) in regards to the paragraph being a two-part statement, which I would bet my bottom dollar that the administration is doing – if indeed they care about the legalities at all… which, at this point, I rather seriously doubt.

    I had a discussion with my wife this morning about Glenn’s attitude on the Bundy thing. She was reading his responses from over the last several years to situations like this and they all were pleas to use the system, change the system, fight the system (non violently). I reminded her of the hundreds of phone calls to out elected officials that we made during the Obama Care debate. Most often we got no answer, lines were busy, mailboxes were full. And they passed it, even though it was not popular with the general populace by a long stretch. I reminded her that our tax dollars are spent in the billions on things that are wasteful and give aways. Our vets get treated like animals and we send millions the the Muslim Brotherhood. I said to her “before the American Revolution, they were using the system. They were writing letters, they were making speeches. They were ignored and the King tightened the screws on them (sound familiar?) They finally came to the point that armed revolution had to be waged to change things. That’s where I think Glenn is unplugged, our nation is in deep trouble and the comparisons to 300 years ago and how things were then is stark. We are being ignored, we are being enslaved, we are not represented. We are being told to shut up, work, pay taxes and look the other way when our labor is spent on social programs and foreign aid we disagree with. Yes, Glenn, at some point we have to face the fact that the system will not change unless we change it. However and whatever that takes.

  • AG Dot Com!

    Just read that. Yes, the federal government is playing fast & loose – the Nevada land, for example: my understanding of the agreement when Nevada achieved statehood was that the federal government would then sell that land and accept a percentage of the profits – not retain it in perpetuity. Long and short of it is, the federal government is in the wrong, should not be retaining such pieces of land, and definitely has no mandate to acquire further land (which they are trying to do right now in at least Texas).

    [addendum:] the “not to exceed ten Miles square” is in fact a reference to what would become Washington, DC.

    Ok, so Glenn wants us to be “linked arm in arm”, I get it. He wants all of us here to stand with everyone else. The society Glenn describes has no boundaries. What difference is there between that philosophy and that of the current administration who wants open boarders? A one world government?
    The standards of this society would have to reach and be in common with even those of all levels of morality or the lack thereof. If the bible is the foundation of this nation, the compass upon which our morality is based upon, and we believe in the words of Jesus Christ, then how can you get around the most basic of all of God’s requirements? Thou shalt not steal (IRS), Thou shalt not kill (can we list all the armed government agencies who are here for our “protection”?), Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, his property, and all that he has (Entitlement Society). Honor thy Father and thy Mother (Department of Education who supplants the parents as role models) but the greatest of all these being “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me” and yet we have people lining up for miles trying to get a government job because it is “security”. Will we ever sound the warning voice? Will we ever tell them that they must stop or that they cannot be a part of our society? Do they think about the effects of what they do upon this society when they go out to do the things that the Government wants them to do? Is it any different than signing up with the Nazis? We have more people now on the government dole than we have ever had before in our history as a nation and do people have a sense of shame for this? This is an entitlement society, a socialist society and we have as a whole accepted it. Not everyone agrees with this however and it is the minority who hold to their bible and their guns and they are shunned and most acutely by people like Mr. Beck whether he recognizes it or not. Glenn does not know what he is doing or the effects of his words that he broadcasts to this nation.
    If you are to have a moral society you must have boundaries. You cannot link arm in arm with people who disregard the very basis for which our society was originally based upon which is upon the freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our conscience. That means that not everyone believes in the same way, we do not worship in the same way, we do not respect God in the same way. Regardless of what religion Glenn is trying to push and I’m not talking about Mormonism because quite honestly I don’t think that Glenn is a Mormon in his doctrine anymore than the Pope is a protestant. Glenn has a doctrine, a creed that he is trying to push and it is based upon the beliefs of Martin Luther King Jr and Ghandi and it is a humanistic viewpoint. Glenn’s doctrine and religion is HUMANISM plain and simple. It’ isn’t Mormonism, and it isn’t protestantism. It isn’t Catholicism and it isn’t any “ism” except humanism and who is the most notable humanist this world has ever known? Lucifer.
    “Because I never rejected him. In spite of all his imperfections, I’m a fan of man! I’m a humanist. Maybe the last humanist. Who, in their right mind, Kevin, could possibly deny the 20th century was entirely mine? All of it, Kevin! All of it! Mine!” (Al Pacino, Devi’s advocate)
    I don’t think Glenn realizes just how similar his viewpoints are to those of Aronofsky, the director of the movie “Noah” saying “what kind of a God would stand by and destroy so many ‘innocent’ people? Why can’t we just all get along”?

    BULLSH!T. Don’t speak for ME and my tea party brethren when you don’t have a fricken CLUE what you’re talking about!! The tea party did NOT “get him beat”, you backwoods moron. The ESTABLISHMENT ran him in the first place – without the votes!! As you appear to be as dumb as a box of rocks, I’ll edumacate you here: the establishment doesn’t count those votes we waste in the primaries, you knucklehead, they SELECT the nominee. And regardless of that… the great majority of us held our nose and voted for Sarah Palin even though that PoS mcshame was on the ticket!!! And we voted for Romney MUCH easier than mcshame!! But a bazillion people, not FAR-right radicals as the STUPID/ UNINFORMED “moderate tools” contend… but REGULAR folks… did not get enthused by Romney because those IDIOTS who are FAR less informed than us tea party folks tend to BELIEVE the GARBAGE that the mainstream media feeds them – the negative stuff/ the LIES told about Romney!!! So THOSE people stayed home!!! We despise the entrenched, establishment RINOs who have been willfully selling us and our nation down the river for many years, but most of us vote for the damn republican over the commie democrat at the polls. I think Romney is a fairly decent man, but he’s SERIOUSLY “establishment” and moderate, and I wasn’t happy with his being SELECTED, but at the same time I “had to” “get happy” about him, and started feeling that; “HEY!! The guy’s a HELLUVA businessman, and perhaps he really means to try to get our economy and jobs and fiscal house in order!!” Of course there are many types of folks in EVERY group, and there were those hardcore idiots who voted STUPIDLY for Ron Paul – even though anyone with ONE freakin’ brain cell should have known that Paul couldn’t POSSIBLY garner more than FOUR percent of the vote!!! So they wasted their votes. But I will guarantee you that a higher percentage either didn’t vote or flipped due to the negative campaigns. And THE biggest thing of all is that the RINO party is WAY too stupid to HUNT DOWN/ RECRUIT/ FIND/ GROOM… a communicator!!!! As sweet as Romney (may be) is… he SUCKED at selling anything, let alone himself!! THIS was the GOP’s fault, NOT the tea party, you short sighted stooge!!!

    I stopped watching or listening to Glenn Beck years ago. He is a self promoter, who will not accept certain facts about what is happening to this country. I got so sick of him repeating the same old story over and over with a new twist.
    The Bundy story is very simple. Bundy has no legal obligation to pay the Federal government to graze his cattle, and I’m not going to delve into the legal lingo here. Bundy’s family have been grazing here since before the BLM existed.
    The BLM swat teams were withdrawn because there were ARMED citizens in place to defend the Bundy’s. Harry Reid knew he was heading down the wrong road, and he had all law enforcement withdrawn. This would not have happened if there had been unarmed protestations by the people.
    Out here in the West, we realize the essence of our freedom is in the right to be armed. Beck is a fool to suggest anyone should have acted differently, but he was once again self-aggrandizing and chose the path he thought would get him the most hits on his website or the most viewers on his boring shows.

    My own grandfather said the same thing and he was a farmer. He was not a bigot and a devout rural christian as were both grandparents. He had seen the welfare destroy the negro and make them a slave to government. The book of Ecclesiastes has a verse about this which is one of many in the Bible, ”

    24 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

    Work or labour is good for the soul. A man who does not work should not expect others to feed him with some exceptions for those who truly cannot work.

    I am a severely disabled vet and I went to see Glenn at FreedomPac in Louisville. Glenn has made me think about dropping my subscription to the Blaze due to his lack of understanding of Cliven Bundy. He simply said what Thomas Sowell and other great minds have said but just in a clumsier, hayseed way. My family is from the Tennessee hills and they talk much the same way. Glenn needs to learn that not everyone is as articulate as those who could afford to go to school. Some of us had to join the service at 17 and some had to go work at 13. I know much about this.

    Beck has lost ALL credibility with his now former audience. Alex Jones had a great report on just what kind of shill Glenn is, along with the rest of his “reporters”, and how they all have ties with big brother. All Glenn cares about is himself. Hes greedy and a narcissist, much like the pResident in the WH currently. I have not, and will not give Glenn any money whatsoever. Even the devout readers of the Blaze are fed up with his nonsensical babbling all the time. Hopefully he will now see how capitalism really works when he sees a huge drop in cash flow from his once loyal audience.

    My option is to or move to a communist country because I believe in the rule of law? or rather, I believe in adjudication of rights by the state and federal judiciary. You have to work within the system. Those who feel that they have lost their voice have no one to blame but themselves. Apathy replaced citizenry a long time ago–hence the election of Barack Obama, a supremely unqualified individual with no real world experience prior to assuming the job, but one savvy enough to take advantage of changing age demographics. McCain and Romney blew their campaigns–both were winnable. I regret their miscalculations. I as a citizen of this republic take my obligation to be informed as to the philosophy and position of those I elect very seriously. I did not vote for the current President, who I think history will not view with favor. I am carefully watching the contestants for 2016. With Citizens United and McCutcheon now the law, it will be interesting to see how unlimited corporate spending impacts the decision. We need a major course correction. If I had been in the Senate, both Sotomayor and Kagan would have received my no vote. Nonetheless, they are on the Supreme Court and will have some say for many years. And we have to deal with it.
    Those who believe that they can take up arms against any government program they disagree with are misguided. Cliven Bundy is stubborn–that does not make him right on the law.

  • ksrgl444

    Jen, I do not believe Romney got through by support of majority base, just as McCain did not. Something happened in both of those elections where after the first three primaries, the media crowned the nominee and it was like it was over. I cannot find one person, not ONE, who support John McCain. The media is going to find the most milquetoast, old, white man they can find and run with it. It’s very frustrating.

  • Jason

    I understand Glenn’s stance on this but you can only go so far with the peaceful approach. Sooner or later they will begin to, as Glenn says, go from nudge to shoving. I believe that when you do get shoved into to a corner and get beat on, you will have to defend yourself, your family and yes even your country. Peace may be the way in the beginning but the other side will begin to see that as a weakness and then escalate things because they believe that you will just roll over and beg for more.
    I believe what Romans 12:18 says, If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peacefully with all men. There is a point where the bully will back you into a corner and you have no choice but to stop violence with a bit of violence. Living in constant fear is not living peacefully.
    In short I agree with Glenn but he needs to see the long term reality with this current crop of third world tyrant wanna bees.

    My point about Senator McCain and Mr. Romney is that they lost winnable elections; the end result of which was two terms of Barack Obama, the current source of everyone’s frustration. As to reflecting my political leanings–was there a viable alternative in the Republican party or an independent on the right who somehow escaped my attention? My personal beliefs are this country needs a strong independent candidate who is beholden to neither party apparatus, is a rock solid conservative on fiscal issues, is unequivocal in our foreign policy and stops worrying about non-issues such as gay marriage which do nothing but dilute the case of conservatism. But we are indeed doomed by our non-functional two party system presently.
    My view of the 2d amendment likely differs from yours–if the government operates in a non-constitutional matter, that is ultimately resolved in the courts. You have to bring the right case on it. it does not mean you get to arm up because you want to ignore a Federal Court order. That is anarchy.

    when the government including the courts are corrupt and working for themselves instead of we the people it is our right, it is our duty to change and/or replace it. that is our right laid out in the declaration of independence and the 2nd amendment, it is not anarchy. this country is we the people, not them the government, we have the power, not them. we don’t want violence, a show of force is a way to stop violence from being brought against us. as long as you believe the corrupt government and corrupt courts will do their duty to adhere to the constitution and we the people you and your rights will continue to be walked on. when the government fears the people we have liberty, when the people fear the government we have tyranny. the government needs to fear us again, we can do it with non-violent armed protest, without violence. why can you not understand peace through superior power.

    yes–you and I agree that it is our duty to work to replace the government that we are opposed to. I chose the political path. If you believe that shouldering rifles and holstering pistols is the path, I think you will find limited success, especially if you believe that armed militias will ever have superior power.
    Because I practice law, I am guessing that my point of reference and view of the judiciary is different than yours. While there are many cases of corruption (particularly in lower level municipal courts and traffic courts), it is far from the norm in the Federal court system–unless you believe that a Judge’s political philosophy and Constitutional philosophy at odds with yours is the equivalent of corruption. I don’t. I know that important Constitutional arguments are taken very seriously by judges. I know that the balance of power in the judiciary depends on the balance of power in the Congress and the Office of the President. We have a fairly balanced federal judiciary; but with Obama in a second term, there is a slightly higher number of Democratic appointees. Hence the need to succeed at the ballot box.
    If you think that the judiciary is inherently corrupt in all circumstances, then perhaps you do not approve of our tripartite system. I do–and I have seen it work time and time again.

    Glenn:

    Standing arm-in-arm is a pretty picture but… to everything there is a season.

    According to our Founders and founding documents; Capitation is FORBIDDEN – yet we are subject to income taxes and other per-person taxes. Our currency MUST have intrinsic value and MUST be controlled by the People’s representatives, AND we are NOT to have fiat currency controlled by a consortium of bankers – yet we have the Fed.

    Our right to bear arms shall not be infringed AND it is our responsibility to go about armed as a matter of civil society, readiness and National Security. We are to be secure in our homes, our papers and effects private – yet we have the NSA. Our borders are to be secured – yet we have the largest INVASION in history unattended to.

    And we are FORCED to submit to an increasingly militarized, tyrannical and CRIMINAL government.

    The time is well past to FORCE our “representatives” to trials for corruption, for Oath violations, for murder and for TREASON. When the trials begin and the convictions are determined and the sentences executed we will begin to regain our freedom.

    How about, Glen you’re entitled to your opinion as an individual like everyone else, but your sometimes official, sometimes personal positions have resulted in the mess you find yourself in. Maybe you shouldn’t have plastered your name and you’re picture and your personal opinion on everything your company does? Then as a person you can have an opinion and if you take your mug off of everything and stick with a logo and a name like Mercury you can, as much as anyone else can do, keep you and your business separate to some degree and cut your trouble by about 75% when it comes to something like the Nevada ranch deal.

    Maybe stop making ‘Glen’ your brand and start putting Glen Beck BEHIND the Blaze and your other properties and create an image for them, even if you start in baby steps. Follow the Brietbart model.

    Great observation… Many blacks come from plantation slavery; they knew they were in slavery… Presently many people of all colors are in a more subtle form slavery or bondage; and that is to government dependence. Sadly many don’t even have a clue, and they will fight to stay in their bondage…

    Isn’t this the guy that mock’s California and say’s he would never go there much less do any work from that evil state .
    Glenn I’m so glad you love you so much .
    Best thing I did was cancel my subscription to your big Blaze .
    I was with you from the very beginning thank you for showing me that your slogan The Truth HAS no agenda is a huge lie .
    Oh by the way I’m not for violence either no more than I will pay to listen to a MALCONTENT give the book of JUDE a read will you and hopefully you will see the error of who you are , i’ll keep you in my prayers brother .

    Well I think I have been hanging around here hoping that all this was some sick joke or a bad dream and Glenn would eventually let us in on it and tell us he really messed up on this one. Now I believe its not gonna happen.

    Once again today on his radio show he yelled “WAKE UP AMERICA” I believe when discussing a segment on Benghazi……….well Glenn….. we woke up already, during the BLM issue…..and where were you???……. so please don’t have the audacity to ask us to “WAKE UP” again for an issue regarding the government.

    In fact I think after seeing all this come about…. I have indeed awoke!

    Won’t see me here again,

    RD out.

  • trups60 .

    And likewise…. All these ppl that you are saying are so violent… Apply your same logic, if they are so violent then why didn’t they shoot? If they are so violent then why was they no violence? Nothing pisses me off more than when ppl don’t apply the same logic to their own argument. It only proves you aren’t open to the truth but rather just want to prove your point.

    Yesterday (maybe day before), Shiela Zalinsky had Jim Garrow on her program( the Weekend Vigilante), which you can access at stevequayle.com. Jim’s opinion on this issue brought a lot to light. Listen for yourselves. In short, Harry Reid(a Mormon) was out to teach Cliven Bundy(obviously an expendable Mormon) a lesson…to get out of the way. Harry also used his influence with the hierarchy of the Mormon Church, which in turn, gave Beck his marching orders…understand now why Beck took the position he did??

    Glenn panicked and did not want to be tagged as a threat. Lot of misinformation spread about that whole Bundy ranch case making them look like gun totin’ criminials. Orders from Bundy were to leave all guns in vehicles. And the Las Vegas metro police assisted with a stand down and getting the cattle released and back to grazing land.

    Silly, Glenn doesnt want a discussion on anything. He, and only He, knows the truth. And if you don’t agree with Him, you are wrong. That has always been his stance.

  • Will Iam

    Wow, Glenn, it seems as though your trying to convince everyone your right is paramount on this issue. Look Brother, if you remember, Cliven did ask the protestors to protest non-violently and without their guns, so that is a peaceful protest, right? But your saying he wasn’t peacful…OK. Aren’t you the one who’s always telling us the Lord helps those who help themselves, but when Bundy does just that, your all over him like evil on a Obama administrator, and your worried about the PC aspect of this case? Consider this Glenn, maybe it’s not celebrity that Bundy is enjoying, but providence? I guess you can take the Guys out of the CNN, but you can’t take the CNN out of the Guys, hunh?

  • Liberty Or Death

    Alex Jones is a good example. I have started listening to his program and he is a hell of a lot more insightful than Beck. I think he’s a lot smarter. But he’s abrasive & loud, not as eloquent as someone like Beck, ie, Beck is all show, whereas Jones has substance.

    Glenn, you slandered an 80 year old man just because he is not as articulate as you. If you had bothered listening to the entire interview, which was an hour long, you would have realized he is not a racist…but the opposite. He simply doesn’t use PC language. He uses the language of his day. He’s a rancher, not a radio host. You owe him a public apology.

    Listen to Andrea Shea, who generally takes your positions. She expressed deep disappointment.

    You really missed the boat on this one.

    Instead of saying what I want to say I’ll say this Glen….you are on the wrong side of history and if we listened to you we are truly lost. You have to fight, bite and scratch for your country. As far as I’m concerned you are in the right place in California now all you need to do is take your job back at CNN. You are not a patriot sir.

    This makes as much sense as anything I’ve tried to come up with…
    I am absolutely clueless as to why Beck was decrying violence when there was none then proceeds to tell his paying subscribers to kiss off if they disagreed with him. He then doubled down by accusing Bundy of being a racist in spite of the clear evidence to the contrary.
    It certainly appears he was given marching orders or he’s lost his mind!

    The honor would fall to the lot of you completely p*ssed off and irrational because Glenn promotes peace instead of going off half-cocked and not being able to separate the issue from the man, who indeed was extremely racist and ignorant in his comments from the land use issue with the BLM. Just because your interpret what he said one way, does not take away from what he actually did say. There is a lot more to this story as there usually is, which means you should proceed with caution unless you really want war on your hands.

  • jen

    No truth – you are warped under Bush/GOP & co that believes R and D are so different.
    Pure idiotic to believe Obama can’t write a budget – anyone can write a budget. Romney and Obama as well as conservative hero Bush all wrote debt increasing budgets and would never repay any debt.
    Obama is not incompetent just as your love Romney isn’t – they are competent in serving their own needs and both brilliant at getting you to be their slave.

  • jen

    Tea Party works hand in hand with GOP as it is their party just as gop elites. Tea Partiers voted to push Romney as nominee all the way.
    No use denying it – tea party have a long way to go with having spine and courage instead of caving all the times to their wicked elite leadership. Anyone who went to vote for Obama or Romney is an idiot.

    Are you kidding Chris Ross? Christ was crucified, or did that fact somehow escape you? MLK was murdered, or did that fact somehow escape you? Last I checked Bundy is alive and well. Both figures you speak of faced much more persecution than just agents standing with AR 15′s pointed at them. Are you sure you are really a Christian? Christ never retaliated and said to forgive the sinner and love your enemies all of the time, not just some of the time. And no, we have not peacefully protested. A large majority of Republican voters didn’t even turn up to vote at the last election.

    Bundy did all of that to himself. The only thing that you and all of the other Bundy supporters are doing are interpreting what he said to fit your illusion of who the man is. What he said is far and away different from what you all keep saying that he said. If not racist, it was completely ignorant and at the very least embarrassing. Glenn doesn’t owe Bundy squat. He was right to respectfully part company with the man.

  • Taraveah

    Because you are so sure that you “know” the truth. Seems like you and many other posters on this thread are reactionary and not really concerned at looking a little closer at the man you have now all pledged your undying allegiance to, and that, is scary.

  • Taraveah

    you people are really insane. Glenn has repeatedly stated that because he does not agree with Bundy, does not mean that he “sides” with Reid and The BLM. He has made that point very clear, if you are listening.

  • Taraveah

    That would be common knowledge, wouldn’t it Crassus…

  • Taraveah

    The reactionary statements on this thread are astonishing. Glenn has stated repeatedly that the FEDS handled this situation very badly and that they were wrong, but Glenn was right to question facts that were not addressed until “after the fact” like should Bundy be paying Fed grazing fees like every other rancher out there? Is that not a legitimate question?

    I’ve been a close follower and strong supporter of Glenn Beck, spent more times defending him and his beliefs then I like to think about. I have made the trip to Washington to rally in support of the message he so strongly promulgates, but this was a bad call, more like a knee jerk reaction. I’m lost for words regarding how deeply he has entered wound of creditability that not even a bandage could stop the bleeding. Mr. Bundy is not a racist he used an honest analogy that is perhaps not within the guidelines of being politically correct but was expressed without hatred or malice. As far as the land and grazing rights this was a blatant over reach by the federal government. And lets say the feds were right there was no need for a gun toting aggressive movement on an American citizen it reminded me of Hitlers stratagem.

  • henry

    Well said my friend, well said.

  • whathappened2ubeck

    I bet Glenn’s listeners/readers have been leaving him droves. How do I know? Has anyone else noticed any special stories on The Blaze since Glenn screwed himself on the Bundy story and alienated a lot of his audience? He’s doing articles on “fan art and letters” that were sent to him. I guess he’s trying to show that his listeners still respect and agree with him – but we don’t Glenn. And unless you stand up against this tyranny, this bastardization of our freedoms and liberties, and I mean stand like a MAN, we won’t take you seriously again.

    Good luck to you Glenn Beck. I once looked up to you because of the things for which you stood. I hope to once again.

  • Jane Helbert

    Conservative wife,

    I think Glenn is saying each of us have our own path in this life. He has chosen the peaceful path as did Martin Luther King and others because that is how he is led by God. He feels strongly that this is his mission and wants to join with those who share his posititon but he knows every one of us is in a different mindset that could be from God. We each have our part God is urging us to do. What I think Glenn is saying that we must be mindful that there are other powers in this world who can confuse us to believe what is not God’s Will.
    Our country might have been founded by aggressive measures in unsurmountable odds as was Israel but then God only asked that they (we) follow His Word. As with Israel, He asked the United States to follow His Word and make Him most important so He would Bless our exsistence. He purposely made an example of His Chosen, Israel, whom He scattered, and then brought back as a sign to the world that what He says is the Truth.
    Our country was founded on His Truth and was blessed. But as we (our country) continue to turn our backs on Him we lose His Blessing. As was His chosen Israel, He Said His Promise would be taken from Israel and given to the gentiles. We (the U.S.) was chosen by God to further His Word as long as we followed His Truths.  The beginning of our demise was on 9/11/2001. I remember that day so vividly. I found myself asking, “why now?” I remembered wondering what had changed that would embolden someone else to attack the United States of America – the most powerful country on earth? And while watching our Congressmen standing on the steps of our capitol singing “God Bless America”, I was offended and thought, “Why should He?” They have done nothing but try to take God out of our lives! He will not be mocked.
    Read Isaiah 9:10. Unless our country repents and returns to God’s Ways will we survive.
    I truly believe we are living the “End Times”.

  • Nanette Gray

    Where you error Glenn. I know we are to love our enemies, in fact pray for them. However, Mr. Bundy wanted no violence at all, but ask yourself, why did they need all the guns and over “kill” by the BLM??? As far as Bunday’s comments, once again the ‘group” jumped ship, when I knew exactly what he was tying to say. If the whole interview had been listen to the truth of his inability to get his point across in the “right” way was not talked about. Mr. Bunday was tying to say, after he was asked many questions, was that the black community is no better off than when they were on a plantation, and as stated in some cases better off, for they are in the inner cities on a political plantation created by liberals. THIS is what I think he was talking about. No, he wanted no violence, but look at the viloence against the Bunday family when trying to get their cattle.. I have no hatred for the BLM people…but I fear with out equal force present, I believe their lives were endangered!

    I think there have been numerous examples of how this Administration has applied its own view of the rule of law which is designed first and foremost, to accomplish its political objectives. while many administrations before did the exact same thing, this administration, particularly through the use of the Executive Order has pushed it farther. That is why we have the Federal Courts to check the Executive Branch. I have to rely on those courts.
    The next time I am caught violating a Federal law or regulation and lose in court, I will appeal that decision. if there is a constitutional issue in play, I will make sure I set up a website for the prosecution of that constitutional issue all the way up to the Supremes. I will also seek legislative relief. I will not stock up on the ammunition and surround my enclave with militia from out of state.

    For what it’s worth, I’m 67 years old and I was taught by my parents and by the nuns at school that Negro was the proper word to use, but to never say n*****. At that time no one referred to people as “black” or used hyphenated terms such as African-American, Italian-American, etc.

  • Brian Gavigan

    I get in now. You kept your distance from the Bundy situation, because of its many moving parts, and ultimately history has shown you to be careful who you align yourself with before you get the full story not only to protect the truth but yourself. “Don’t get suckered in” Am I Right? Fair enough.

    So the second your reluctance to engage was verified with an alarming sound bite from the NYT, your adrenaline kicked with a “see I told you so” mentality and finally entered the ring. Full of pride, you pounded your chest louder than ever proclaiming once and for all “be careful who you stand with”.

    Secure in your position you went ALL in. Calling Bundy a racist and calling out listeners who believe violence is the answer etc to “unlike” you. You don’t want or need them. Still on the theme of distancing yourself from those you are unsure about. Understood- you’ll never get to know all you listeners, so make a distinction of who you want following you. Strengthen the team if you will. Fair enough.

    The problem is you made these assertions, and went All in about Mr. Bundy without knowing the facts. I know, you did your due diligence, reached out and talked to Cliven, and your very sweet cuddly employee talked to him too. “Ohhh Mr. Beck, I have bad feelings about this Guy Cliven, he yelled at me and called me names. I can’t take this abuse from a real man Mr. Beck, here can you talk to him, I’m very upset.” Who Knows, maybe Cliven was having a bad day, maybe your employee was on the rag, maybe you already had your mind made up, but one this is for sure you didn’t have the facts, yet stood tall on the wrong side, and are dancing around an apology hoping this blows over.

    I would imagine by now, you know the truth, or at least your heart does, and if you don’t, then its bye bye. Own up Mr Beck, and quit acting like that employee of yours.

  • krazy_liberals

    Sadly, Glen and others (such as Hannity) allowed themselves to fall into a trap set by the NY Times with regard to the “racist” rant. Those that distanced themselves and turned against Mr. Bundy took the bait. Those of us that get news from more reliable sources have seen the entire video, and we have seen interviews with African-American Oathkeepers, etc, at the ranch. While Mr. Bundy uses terminology that hasn’t been “acceptable” for the last 20 years, his statements are no different than what can be found in the philosophies of Thomas Sowell, and others of similar thought. The government sent SWAT teams to collect cows; how is this different than the British sending soldiers into the colonies to enforce Crown policies? What our founders thought outrageous, we more than accept. While I agree with Glen about 90% of the time, he misses the mark on some profound issues. I almost gave up on Glen completely when he failed to support Ron Paul. Then Glen had his mild libertarian epiphany, and I decided to give him a second chance. I’ve accepted that Glen believes we have to bomb certain brown people back to the stone age, to somehow make us safe. I’ve accepted that Glen believes the Civil War to have been about freeing the slaves (which requires one to accept the ridiculous notion that an army that for decades had been murdering one type of brown people, took a break for four years to save a different set of brown people, and subsequently returned to the task of exterminating that first set of brown people). His present misapprehension regarding the tryranny being revealed in Nevada may prove the final straw. I cannot be alone in my estimation. It’s too bad; “The Blaze” was very promising.

    It’s a shame that such an educated man like O’Reilly is incapable of differentiating between ignorant and uneducated.

    Glenn has repeatedly stated that he follows MLK, Ghandi, and Jesus. I objected to him placing Jesus on the same level as MLK, a good man but he was also a well-known adulterer and plagiarist; and on the same level as Ghandi, a known anti-Semitic. I notice in his ‘speech’ to those who stood with Bundy, that he now left out Jesus. Hmmm.

  • PatriotMom

    Thank God, I thought I was the only one listening and understanding what he meant!! Glenn, Hannity and O’Reilly all disappointed me with their jump to conclusions just because they heard the word “slavery”. I think they’ve been listening to the left for too long and forgot to keep the context intact and allow for the difference between generations in how we may speak. Mr. Bundy was talking the way I heard things growing up, he wasn’t trying to put the blacks down (and who knows what color to call people these days – everything is so insanely PC) he was doing the same comparisons that Glenn and others have made. He just doesn’t talk quite as eloquently as they usually do! Thanks to all the wonderful people who have commented trying to clear things up; it’s so nice to know we are all in this together ;-)

    opposition that turns to support for establishment candidates has
    become a pattern. I’ve started tuning him out, and have started listening
    to KrisAnne Hall and Ben Swann for news and commentary. Win me back Mr. Beck, I still have hope for you yet.

    Romney got beat because the insiders decided it was going to be Obama again. Romney didn’t lose at the polls, The polls are as corrupt as the voting booths around the world that we have decided are corrupt. The government paints our election system as free from corruption that you can get, when its the other way around. So, its not the Tea Party, We have got to stop the dishonest voting methods somehow or it will continue to not matter whether we vote or not…

  • Mike Sellers

    ok, just a comment on Fox: Fox is not as conservative as some would have us believe. Just like the media has painted the Bushes to be conservative, when in reality they are not conservative, they just have that nice little “R” next to their name.

  • Mike Sellers

    Exactly, so where the Bundy’s and supporters of the Bundy’s just supposed to walk around unarmed doing some peaceful rally. That rally would be very intimidating and threatening at the same time. So, the notion that Bundy’s supporters should be unarmed to level the playing field is irresponsible.

  • Charlie

    I’ve got to say, I think Glenn Beck is nothing more then a spineless hypocrite. He preaches liberty, and exposing big brother, and showing people what the government is doing to them. What does he do when people stand up and say no? He calls them war mongers! He claims to believe in the 1st Amendment yet he condemns those who peacefully protest? He claims to support the 2nd Amendment but didn’t believe those people should be carrying guns? He says he believes in the right to self defense, but yet when people in an unarmed protest were hit with vehicles, tased, and threw to the ground by the BLM and they show up with firearms to defend themselves, each other, and the right to peacefully assemble, he criticizes them? What kind of a buffoon is this Glenn Beck? I have never seriously followed Glenn before Bunkersville, and I’m not going to start now. So Glenn you really want to know what prompted all those “people who reached for violence” to come together and support not only a man who was being trampled by the government, but also the people who were brutalized by the BLM (Bunkersville Livestock Murderers)? It was you, and men like Alex Jones, who have fought the good fight, and spoke the good word, to wake people up and make them come together for each other. You sir have let America down. I want you to read this Glenn and think about it. I also want you to remember. If anyone of the armed protestors wanted violence and a war, they could have had it at the drop of a hat. You want to talk about God, why don’t you thank God that no one on either side had an accidental discharge, or even a car backfire. Hundreds of people could have been killed! From what all my friends have said about you Glenn, I really had higher hopes for you then to back away from the cause of freedom, and I am sorry to see you cower to the government. I think I will pray you regain your strength in my prayer tonight. This is all I have to say.

    Well I think he already dropped the ball when tried to throw Alex Jones under the bus. Misconstruing the facts and misleading your audience doesn’t gel with punching back with facts.
