Glenn: “After what I have learned this week I’m a changed person.” – Glenn Beck

Just a few minutes ago our jib operator Justin came up to me. He said, ‘Glenn, out of all of the things you’ve covered in your life where does this fit in importance? And I said ‘Most people are going to think this is maybe 20 or 50.’ In the last 50 years this is we’ve had the Watts Riots, and the death of the Martin Luther King and the things that I have covered in the last 40 years, I would say this is top five. Maybe number 2. And possibly number one in importance. Number one, is clearly the World Trade Center bombing.

I want you to listen to me carefully for the next 20 minutes.This is very, very important. What we do going forward from here will determine the fate of our nation. Make no mistake. This story is number 2 because of what I know. What we do will make this the most important story of our lifetime. What’s happening now is very important. What happens in the aftermath will make it the most important, because it will either save our country or we will be done.

We’ve had a press all week that has been celebrating the idea that this might have been a Tea Party person that wanted to perpetrate this crime. Now never before in my history have in my history of broadcast, in my history as an American, have I ever heard the press gleefully wish that they want an American to be responsible for an American tragedy.

I’ve never heard people want to believe the worst in people. It;s what makes us America. We trust each other. We like each other. We want to believe the best in each other.

But our media wants to believe the worst of about 50% of this country. When I talk about progressives, I’m not talking about the average person. I’m talking about maybe 8% of our population that they truly understand what progressivism is. I believe the average Democrat, even the average progressive doesn’t really know what they’re doing. I mean they think they do. They’re not. They have not done the years of homework and study that I have on that movement.

I still believe the best in our country. But hear me clearly – after what I have learned this week I’m a changed person. After what I have learned this week, I believe our country is over. America is dying and breathing her last gasp. If we do not resuscitate on this story, we close the lid and close the book on our country and begin to write a new book. Now that doesn’t mean that you’re not the author. That there’s not a constitutionalist that is the author of the new book. It just means what we have is over and a struggle begins for a new Republic.

Real Peace

Sometimes it seems as if the whole world was on fire.  Chaos seems present at every turn, and the uncertainty of tomorrow is felt very much in our day to day.  Logic has taken a fall, and emotions seem misplaced.  The need for truth has been replaced by a hunger for destruction and manipulation.  To win at all costs is not and will never be the pursuit of right.  While life demands response, let wisdom guide our steps.  Action apart from direction is destruction, and actions committed in anger lead to regret.  Much as we may want to respond now in 1,000 different directions, this isn’t the time to throw gasoline on the fire.  

 

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

 

It’s easy to forget who we are, to get caught up in the drama of it all, and to forget the peace that can carry us through.  Faith, family, friendships, and love, the things that not only give meaning, but serve as a rudder through the storms of life.  It is as society itself were at war with these things, but again, these are the things that will carry us through, the only things that can carry us through.  Take that time to breathe, to be still, to hear His voice and to find His peace that He would direct our steps.  Express love to those who surround you, and treasure the moments we share.  May the noise that surrounds me never rob me of the beauty right in front of me.  Strive not for perfection, but rather what is right.  As much as we must stand against evil and declare it for what it is, may the beauty that surrounds us never be taken from our sight, and may the peace from which wisdom flows never be pushed aside.  A thrashing bird can know no peace, nor see that the door to the cage is open.  It simply needs to stop, that it can see and find freedom.  The one who can find peace in the midst of chaos is the one who will survive and live, saving many others in the process.

 

1984

I recently watched FarenHYPE 911, which although dated was very good.  My first time watching it.  I didn’t feel the need to watch a movie to tell me Michael Moore is an idiot and a liar, but it was on Netflix so I watched it.  It’s sad to reflect back on how we have changed, how facts have little to do with anything anymore.  Much like the O.J. Simpson trial, the gap between us is wide and impossible to cross.  Since that trial, that division has come to define where we are at today.

The left, which included Obama, attacked Bush on every angle.  I’m not looking to say that the attacks were correct or not, but I do find it interesting that the same people who were concerned about wars and Constitutional rights are strangely silent about Obama.  In fact, the only scrutiny he seems to get is outside of the mainstream media, and any scrutiny, any statement of concern, is attacked as racism or extremism.  If you were concerned then, how could you not be now?  Be it war, Constitutional rights and safeguards, the budget or the economy, Obama has dwarfed George W. Bush in a very short time.

Also, someone has to say it, Bush is gone people.  Obama had the House and the Senate, and while the House was lost, he still retains the Senate.  He had the power few presidents ever get, and yet all he has is blame, attacks, and excuses.  Would W have been able to get away with that?  In fact would any president at any point in our nation’s history?  Strange days indeed.

I’m going to forgo the links on the following, as I’m lazy tonight, but if so inclined, please look for yourself.

We have had the NDAA, and numerous executive orders that can suspend the Constitution, signed by Obama.  We are one event away from the death of the Republic.  The left would be screaming if Bush or Romney held such powers, especially if they showed Obama’s level of disdain for the rule of law and Constitutional protections.  The media would be watching like a hawk, reporting on every detail.  They’d even make up lies to rile the people, and justify it as a legitimate concern.

It is a legitimate concern, but no one is watching.  The most dangerous politicians are the ones no one watches and/or the ones who are blindly trusted.  In Obama’s case we have both.  The mainstream media has become an extension of the DNC, and they are neither watching or concerned.  You know, Tom and Katy are far more interesting.

9/11 ushered in a change in our rule of law and our liberties.  That has been expanded  under Obama.  Given the current situation, imagine a major attack against something like the London Olympics, one which made 9/11 look small.  A worse case scenario could be closer than we think.

Bush actively engaged Islamic terrorists, with our forces fighting them in the Middle East, our people torturing for information and acting on the information they gathered. This led to the death of Bin Ladin.  In contrast, Obama has largely disengaged from that pursuit.  To look at the Department of Justice, you’d think the Tea Party brought down the World Trade Center.  He has empowered the radical muslims in the Middle East while dropping protections on the border.  He has suspended deportations.

Exactly how far off do we think a major terrorist event is?  Our enemies remain determined to hit us, and we have done everything to aid them.  You would think they wanted another 9/11.  Our efforts to betray our allies and aid our enemies have not changed the latter’s feelings toward us.  It was Clinton’s eight years of ignoring the obvious threat that led to 9/11; how much greater the treat with Obama?  Carter left us a terrorist state in Iran, Obama has given Iran allies in Egypt and Libya.

One event…

One event, and the Republic is dead.
