Glenn Beck motives, TheBlaze.com, Using truth to deceive?
“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
The following article was sent to me in an email this morning by a long time commenter and patriot. I am not certain if I totally agree with it. There is much food for thought. I can forgive Glenn Beck for not covering Obama’s eligibility in order to stay on the air to cover other crucial concerns (if that was his motive). However, when he insulted millions of concerned Americans who question Obama’s eligibility, including many in the military, including numerous high ranking officers and then finally LTC Terry Lakin, he went way over the line.

“The Beck Deception
Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier. – Charles F. Kettering
If you are a die-hard Glenn Beck fan (like I was), please keep a very open mind as you read this. Our freedom depends on it.
I know too many “ex-Glenn Beck fans” who are using the wrong approach in attempting to show you why Glenn is more of a threat to the American people than he is a truth-teller or savior. I don’t entirely fault them because I understand their frustration as well as their “sense of urgency”. The simple fact of the matter is that if “We The People” do not begin to think for ourselves, and stop the conformity, we will continue to be misled, and we will get nowhere in our fight to regain our freedom and liberties.
In my quest to understand how our country has gotten to where it is, I found Glenn Beck. Not only did he seem to have the answers, he was also providing me with excellent information about people and groups (the czars, ACORN, SEIU, Andy Stern, Anita Dunn, etc.) who surround and influence our president and our policies. I was sure Glenn had stumbled on some pretty beefy information which offered a great explanation as to why our country was going to hell in a hand basket.
For months, I never missed a Glenn Beck show. At the same time, I continued my relentless research on the internet for as much “truth” as I could get my hands on and I’m convinced this allowed me to keep a healthy perspective on “truth”. One day while watching Glenn – a warning signal sounded in my head. In realizing just how massive of a following that Glenn was gaining, I cautioned myself to be careful and to keep an open mind. As indicated by history as well as the bible, I understood that anyone who has the ability to gain such a mass following of people also has the ability to lead that mass astray.
IN ORDER TO SUCCESSFULLY DECEIVE – YOU MUST USE TRUTH
You cannot gain a mass following by telling lies. In order to deceive, You MUST use the truth… or at the very least, what might be acknowledged as truth by the masses (more on this later).
The majority who align themselves with Glenn Beck consider themselves to be “conservatives.” If you fall into this category, you do not follow CNN or MSNBC because “you are able to see the lies.” You can’t conform to their viewpoint because there isn’t enough truth in their message to keep your attention. CNN or MSNBC cannot deceive you because you see no truth in their message. Deception can only deceive if it looks somewhat like the real thing.
Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive
BEFORE YOU UNDERSTAND “HOW” – YOU MUST UNDERSTAND “WHY”
Many of you will refuse to believe that you are being deceived by Glenn Beck because you cannot fathom any reason why he would do this. Without considering the big picture, this is understandable. Because of this, you have rationalized that the “Beck Bashers” must either be jealous of his fame and fortune or they are just “idiot liberals.” Before we can begin to explore “how we are being deceived”, we must first ask the question, “Why?” The short answer is controlled opposition, and this is where it is crucial for many of you to gain and keep an open mind!
Some of you reading this already know that the truth (whole, entire truth) will never be televised. But, as I temporarily did, you are holding on to the hope that somehow, Beck/FOX managed to break free of this rule. You may even think that FOX has discovered that there is more money in telling the truth – so they are going to continue to do it – until the Obama Administration decides to silence them. If you believe there is any threat of FOX being shut down or of Beck being taken off the air – let me guarantee – this will never happen. Why? Because Glenn Beck is the most valuable player on Team Obama than anyone else. Why? Because the elites behind the New World Order who own “Team Obama” also own all of mainstream media.”
“As I continued to watch Glenn Beck with an open mind, I began to see signs of deception. I began to see signs of neo-conservatism. I hadn’t even finished my “Arguing with Idiots” book. Issues and actions that were extreme violations of the Constitution and our freedoms and liberties that were discussed all over the internet went for days unmentioned on his program. If and when they were mentioned, they were not given the attention they deserve. Some were blown off entirely.
As I dug more and more into the 9/11 Truth Movement and I saw the legitimate questions coming from patriots, our war veterans, our military leaders, 9/11 commission members, aerospace engineers, experts, historians, pilots, architects and engineers, families of those killed, economists, I realized these people were not the “kooks” that Beck described. They were also not “dangerous” as Beck described. I had to ask myself why he would mislead his followers. Beck even went so far as to say that he “began hating the families of those who died on 9/11.” Someone who told us to “Question Boldly” suddenly had a zero tolerance level for questioning even from families who had more reason than anyone else to question.
I had no choice, in the face of all the evidence, to conclude that Beck is the ultimate deception because he makes the choice to deceive – as opposed to deceiving out of plain old ignorance.
I attribute much of my initial awakening to Glenn Beck - but because I knew better than to give him my complete trust (I reserve that for God) – and I knew the importance of continuing to find truth on my own (as everyone needs to do, especially now), I knew when to part ways with him. That ultimately led to me turning off the TV. I do not get my news from the TV – because the truth isn’t televised and because you should never be bullied into asking or NOT asking any question.
If Beck were truly “bucking the system” – he would have gone the way of Lou Dobbs.
