112th Congress sworn in, Oath of office, US Constitution, Natural born citizen vs citizen

“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 112th Congress was sworn in yesterday, January 5, 2011 using this oath of office.

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

If any members of Congress do not understand this part:

“support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;”

Please let us know.

Also, if you do not know the difference between citizen and Natural Born Citizen, and why the founding fathers chose this special clasification of citizen with two US Citizen parents, let us know. We will explain it to you.

John Boehner is sworn in as Speaker of the House. In his speech he dedicates the 112th Congress to following the will of the American People and US Constitution. I heard John Boehner’s speech yesterday after he became Speaker of the House. I smiled then. As I watched the video and listened to his words, I came close to tears myself. Tears are not a bad thing. Apathy is.

“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

Hawaii News Now,  KGMB, KHNL, recently interviewed newly elected Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie. Abercrombie, entrenched in the corruption in Hawaii and the Democrat party and an admitted friend of Obama and Obama’s parents, lies to cover for Obama’s eligibility issues.

Hawaii News Now included a reference to the Citizen Wells Blog in the interview video. I would like to thank them for doing so and I encourage them to contact me for the rest of the story, the truth and facts regarding Obama’s eligibility issues.

Hawaii News Now correctly refers to the document provided by the Obama Campaign as a Certification of Live Birth (COLB), but they interchange the term citizen for natural born citizen. Presidential eligibility requires being a natural born citizen.

In the interview Neil Abercrombie admits to being friends with Obama and Obama’s parents. He is another example from the Hawaii and Democrat party corruption machines that the end justifies the means.

Abercrombie states:

“This has to do with the people in Hawaii who love him,
who loved his mom and dad.
This has to do with the respect of the office of the president is entitled to.”

No Governor Abercrombie. This has to do with respecting the US Constitution, office of the presidency and the American people!

Many thanks to the Birther Report for the heads up on the interview.

Christmas 2010, Thanks be to God, Thanks to our forefathers and military, LTC Terry Lakin

Christmas 2010, Thanks be to God, Thanks to our forefathers and military, LTC Terry Lakin

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”…Thomas Paine

On this Christmas morning, December 25, 2010, we have much to be grateful for. First and foremost, thanks be to God.

We should also be thankful for our forefathers, guided by the providence of God, who made it possible for us to continue the struggle for liberty.

“A week before Christmas ’77 Washington’s army took up winter quarters at Valley Forge on the west side of the Schuylkill. Although the General’s choice of location was sharply criticized, the site he had selected was central and easily defended. Then came a cruel race with time to get huts erected before the soldiers, barefoot and half naked, froze to death. Hundreds of horses did in fact starve to death, and for the army starvation was a mortal danger. “No meat, no meat!” was the constant wail. Improvements came about after Nathanael Greene assumed the duties of Quartermaster General on March 23rd.

Yet, despite the ever-present fear of mutiny, no real dissaffection occurred. As Hessian Major Baurmeister conceded, the army was kept from disintegrating by the “spirit of liberty.” Men and officers accepted their tragic plight with a sense of humor and extraordinary forbearance, but it was an ordeal that no army could be expected to undergo for long. Nathanael Greene wrote to General Washington, “God grant we may never be brought to such a wretched condition again.””…”The Spirit of ‘Seventy Six”

The struggle to live free under the rule of law ordained in the US Constitution did not end with our founding. It must be preserved everyday of our lives. We must stand with those like minded individuals who carry forth the spirit of 76, and the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and as Abraham Lincoln stated:

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

One such man is LTC Terry Lakin. He is imprisoned for doing his duty to defend the US Constitution from foreign and domestic enemies. He is, as Lincoln stated, doing his duty to  “overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” We all have that duty.

Let us be thankful for patriots like LTC Terry Lakin, stand beside them in the struggle and work hard to free LTC Lakin and restore the foundations of this country.

Guilty of Treason: Barack Hussein Obama

Guilty of dereliction of Duty:

Congress

State Election Officials

Guilty of conspiracy to Defraud the American Public: US Mainstream Media

From Citizen Wells November 12, 2008.

“What I am about to write is so inherently simple and self evident,
that it may appear on the surface to be implausible. However, the
following facts and arguments flow from the founding fathers’ wisdom
and desire to protect the American citizens from tyrrany. I have read
the US Constitution, Federal election law and numerous state election
laws. I have had dialogue with offices of a number of Secretaries of State
and Election Boards. The US Constitution gives the states power over
the general election. The states control which candidates are placed
on ballots and regardless of the methodology used for doing so, I
believe the states have the power and obligation to verify eligibility
of presidential candidates. I find no federal or state law prohibiting
states from doing so and instead a constitutional duty to ensure that
a qualified candidate becomes a ballot choice for the Electoral College
Electors. Failure to do so effectively may lead to voter disenfranchisement.
I have believed and stated for weeks that the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution gives US citizens the power to demand that a presidential
candidate prove eligbility and certainly standing in a lawsuit. A lawsuit
should not be necessary. We already have the power, directly from the
US Constitution Bill of Rights.
Argument:

  • The US Constitution clearly defines the eligibiity requirement for president.
  • The US Constitution rules.
  • The US Constitution gives states the power to choose electors. With this power comes the obligation to uphold the Constitution and protect voter rights.
  • State laws vary but are consistent in their approach to placing
    presidential candidates on the ballot.
  • Presidential Balloting evolved from tradition.
  • The two party system evolved from tradition.
  • States place presidential candidates on ballots from instructions of
    the major political parties.
  • States should have enacted laws to require proof of eligibility.
  • States are not exercising their duty to the Constitution.
  • States have the power and obligation to ensure that only eligible candidates remain on ballots. Despite compelling evidence that Barack Obama is not eligible, and notification, the states left him on the ballot.
  • States claim no power to remove a candidate when in fact they do have power over the general election process.
  • The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution gives the people power, including Phil J Berg, Leo C. Donofrio and others that have had their lawsuits dismissed in state courts.

By virtue of the powers given to the people in the Tenth Amendment in The BIll of Rights of the US Constitution, we do not have to file lawsuits to demand proof of eligibility or require state election officials to do so.

A US citizen filing a lawsuit demanding that a presidential candidate provide proof of eligibility has standing.”

 

“Philip J Berg lawsuit
Judge Surrick ruling exerpts:
“If, through the political process, Congress determines that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the Presidency, then it is free to pass laws conferring standing on individuals like Plaintiff. Until that time, voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring in the Amended Complaint.”
“…regardless of questions of causation, the grievance remains too generalized to establish the existence of an injury in fact. To reiterate: a candidate’s ineligibility under the Natural Born Citizen Clause does not result in an injury in fact to voters. By extension, the theoretical constitutional harm experienced by voters does not change as the candidacy of an allegedly ineligible candidate progresses from the primaries to the general election.”
Philip J Berg response to ruling:
“an American citizen is asking questions of a presidential candidate’s eligibility to even hold that office in the first place, and the candidate is ducking and dodging questions through legal procedure.”
“This is a question of who has standing to stand up for our Constitution,”  “If I don’t have standing, if you don’t have standing, if your neighbor doesn’t have standing to ask whether or not the likely next president of the United States–the most powerful man in the entire world–is eligible to be in that office in the first place, then who does?”
Mark J. Fitzgibbons is President of Corporate and Legal Affairs at American Target Advertising:
“October 29, 2008
Who Enforces the Constitution’s Natural Born Citizen Clause?”
“So if the Framers established that courts “shall” hear cases arising under the Constitution, and failed to authorize Congress to otherwise establish who may sue to enforce the document, then where might we find conclusively that Berg has standing to sue?
The 10th Amendment to the Constitution states that the powers not delegated to the federal government, nor prohibited to the states, remain with the states or the people.  Therefore it seems that any state or any person has standing to sue to enforce not just the Natural Born Citizen Clause, but other constitutional requirements and rights, absent some expressly written bar within the Constitution itself.”
“Chief Justice John Marshall, writing in Marbury v. Madison, said that judges have a duty to decide cases under our paramount law, the Constitution. I have lamented previously about how some judges tend to evade their duty to decide constitutional matters by resorting to court-made doctrines.  Judge Surrick’s reliance on case law to dismiss Berg’s suit for lack of standing is reasoned from a lawyer’s perspective, but not heroic and perhaps evasive of his larger duty.
His decision to “punt” the matter to Congress creates, I suggest, a dangerous, longer and perhaps more painful constitutional quagmire than had he heard the evidence in the case.  Even had the case lacked merit, the Constitution would not have been harmed.”

Ellis Washington, currently a professor of law and political science at Savannah State University, former editor at the Michigan Law Review and law clerk at The Rutherford Institute, is a graduate of John Marshall Law School and a lecturer and freelance writer on constitutional law, legal history, political philosophy and critical race theory. He has written over a dozen law review articles and several books, including “The Inseparability of Law and Morality: The Constitution, Natural Law and the Rule of Law” (2002). See his law review article “Reply to Judge Richard Posner.” Washington’s latest book is “The Nuremberg Trials: Last Tragedy of the Holocaust.”
Mr. Washington wrote the following response to the Philip J Berg lawsuit and Judge Surrick ruling in a World Net Daily article dated November 8, 2008 :
“Unfortunately, just 10 days before the election, a court of appeals judge threw out Berg’s lawsuit challenging the veracity of Obama’s U.S. citizenship status on technical grounds. Judge R. Barclay Surrick, a Jimmy Carter-appointed judge, amazingly (and with a tinge of irony), stated his opinion in part:
In a 34-page memorandum that accompanied the court order, the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick concludes that ordinary citizens can’t sue to ensure that a presidential candidate actually meets the constitutional requirements of the office.
Surrick defers to Congress, saying that the legislature could determine “that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the Presidency,” but that it would take new laws to grant individual citizens that ability.
“Until that time,” Surrick says, “voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring.”
Judge Surrick, quoting from Hollander, concludes, “The alleged harm to voters stemming from a presidential candidate’s failure to satisfy the eligibility requirements of the Natural Born Citizen Clause is not concrete or particularized enough to constitute an injury.”
Surrick also quotes Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife, which stated, in part, “The Supreme Court has consistently held that a plaintiff raising only a generally available grievance about government – claiming only harm to his and every citizen’s interest in proper application of the Constitution and laws, and seeking relief that no more directly and tangibly benefits him than it does the public at large – does not state an Article III case or controversy.”
Constitutionally speaking, Judge Surrick’s reasoning is completely illogical and a total dereliction of his duty as a judge to substantively address this most vital constitutional controversy. Instead, in a gutless manner, Surrick dismissed Berg’s complaint 10 days before the elections on a technicality of standing, which to any rational person begs the question: If Philip J. Berg as an American citizen, a respected Democratic operative and former attorney general of Pennsylvania doesn’t have the “standing” to bring this type of lawsuit against Obama, then who in America does have standing? The good judge in all 34 pages of legal mumbo jumbo didn’t bother to answer this pivotal question.
That Berg’s complaint is not “concrete or particularized enough to constitute an injury” is an amazing admission by any person that went to law school and even more so given the fact that Surrick is a respected appellate judge!
I am somewhat hopeful that Berg will successfully appeal Surrick’s outrageous decision to 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and then to the United States Supreme Court if necessary, even if technically he doesn’t have standing to hold Obama accountable to the Constitution. Why? Because this is America, and out of 300 million people, someone should give a damn enough about this republic to make sure the person who holds the highest elected office in the land holds it legitimately based on the black letter text of Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.”

“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

“I discovered this article, folded away among my BIRTH CERTIFICATE and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school,”…Obama, “Dreams of My Father”

Anderson Cooper interviewed, I mean interrogated,  Texas State Representative, Leo Berman on November 29, 2010. The last on air personality on CNN to have journalistic integrity, Lou Dobbs, left earlier this year for obvious reasons.

Although Mr. Berman did not have a perfect command of the facts and got pulled into classic far left debates and diversions, I commend Leo Berman for doing so much homework, having such a command of knowledge and caring enough about this country and the US Constitution to speak out boldly and push for common sense legislation.

One of the most important things that Representative Berman spoke of was that no member of the US Congress in January of 2009 spoke up or vetted Barack Obama before or during the certification of the Electoral College Votes. Leo Berman spoke with eloquence and authority.

The other side of the patriot coin is Anderson Cooper. Be assured that when Robert Gibbs steps down, a better manipulator of words, a better spokesman for big brother, is available, Anderson Cooper. When you watch the following video observe how Cooper so expertly employs the tactics of the far left to blur clear issues and divert attention from them. And don’t forget the big lie. Has cooper practiced to emulate Joseph Goebbels?

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”…Joseph Goebbels

Anderson Cooper, do you know you are speaking lies or are you just repeating the often told lies?

Much of the interview was spent debating the birth certificate issues. Leo Berman repeatedly asked, as did Lou Dobbs, to see an original long form birth certificate. John McCain when questioned early in 2008 produced one. Cooper kept hammering that Obama had produced one, FactCheck.org had examined and verifed it and that the short form, COLB, was all that the State of Hawaii offered. Lies.

Anderson Cooper was at his far left, diversionary best when responding to the passport and dual citizenship issues. This is when Berman was at his worst and perhaps not totally prepared. Cooper kept hammering away at why Obama might not have dual citizenship and may have traveled to Pakistan legally.

Here is the truth about Obama’s possible dual citizenship and passport.

Obama did not have two US Citizen parents as McCain did. Obama’s father was Kenyan and therefore British. The founding fathers understood that two citizen parents were required to be a Natural Born Citizen. That is why the US Constitution was worded to grandfather them in. And if you do not have a good knowledge of that subject, consider the following US Senate Resolution 511 that Obama signed.

“Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.”

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=sr110-511

The passport question is simple. Whether or not Obama traveled to Pakistan legally can be debated. What is nondebatable and highly questionable is the fact that Obama has kept all of his records, including past passports, hidden.

Another big lie that Cooper told was that a couple of people have filed lawsuits against Obama. The number is far larger than 2. Also, the Supreme Court has not ruled on Obama eligibility. What they have done is failed to do their duty.

Cooper pick on someone your own “size” like Citizen Wells, Mario Apuzzo, Charles Kerchner or others who have been following these stories and paying attention.
If you are a current or new member of Congress, listen to the words and the challenge of American Patriot Leo Berman of Texas. Do your damn job. You swear an oath to defend the US Constitution.

I am not suprised that the legislation and voice of reason presented by Leo Berman came out of Texas. The people there still have some damn sense. God bless Texas. God bless the US.

Anderson Cooper, you are not getting away with this.

Call me.

Obama eligibility, Natural born citizen, Obama birth certificate and college records, Simple question

Obama eligibility, Natural born citizen, Obama birth certificate and college records, Simple question

“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

“I discovered this article, folded away among my BIRTH CERTIFICATE and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school,”…Obama, “Dreams of My Father”

I have been asking the simple question about Obama going to great lengths to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records for many months. Apparently some folks are confused about this. They mistakenly assume (assuming is one of my pet peeves) that the birth certificate issue is my main focus. They are wrong as many assumptions are.

The hidden birth certificate and college records are but puzzle pieces in the larger picture of many years of Obama deception. The reason that I pose the simple question is that it is non debatable by rational people. There is only one answer, one conclusion to be drawn from the question. Obama is hiding something(s). It is the “deer in the headlights question.” I strongly suggest that you use it. I used it yesterday.

It is clear that Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen for at least one reason and probably more. His father was a Kenyan and therefore British citizen. Some have debated that Natural Born Citizen was not defined in the US Constitution. The answer to that is simple. Among educated people of that era, it was understood that to be a Natural Born Citizen, one had to be born of two citizen parents.

An analogy is presented in the movie “A few good men.” Tom Cruise, portraying a military defense attorney, questions a Marine witness in response to the prosecution attorney stating that “code red” was not mentioned in the Marine Handbook. Cruise asks the witness if mess hall was listed in the handbook. The witness responds that it is not. Cruise then asks how he knows where the mess hall is. The answer is that it was common knowledge.

Mario Apuzzo, attorney in Kerchner v Obama, provides excellent research and background on what Natural Born Citizen means and how our founding fathers understood it.

A more recent document from the US Senate, one signed by Barack Obama, acknowledges the importance of having two US Citizen parents to be a Natural Born Citizen and eligible to be president.

Thanksgiving 2010, Abraham Lincoln proclamation October 3, 1863, heal the wounds of the nation

A Thanksgiving Proclamation from Abraham Lincoln, October 3, 1863.

“By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State”

“fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.”

Amen

Glenn Beck motives, TheBlaze.com, Using truth to deceive?, Citizen Wells open thread, September 12, 2010

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.

If you want to control the dissent, lead the dissent.”
