Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals


waving flagby Michael Patrick Leahy 23 Mar 2016

“All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday.

“Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News.

“However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting that the true God of the Bible is different than the god of the Book of Mormon. I congratulate Beck for his honesty in differentiating between the two,” Jeffress adds.

“However, I am somewhat puzzled that Beck claims to know how the God Christians worship would vote in the Republican primaries.”

Jeffress has introduced GOP frontrunner Donald Trump at many events, though as a pastor he is not officially endorsing any candidate.

Beck, a Mormon, has endorsed Cruz and has spoken on his behalf at numerous rallies around the country.

One prominent academic who specializes in American religion takes exception to Beck’s comments as well.

“Assuming that Mr. Beck is referring to evangelicals who vote for Trump, I would make a distinction that Beck does not: The Bible certainly offers principles on how to think about government and politics. The Bible does not, however, tell us which individual candidates to vote for,” Dr. Thomas S. Kidd, Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Director of the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, tells Breitbart News.

“If other Christians don’t vote for our preferred candidate, we should not say that they are not listening to God. None of us has special access to God’s opinions about candidates,” Kidd says.

“There are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump, but God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative, either,” Kidd concludes.

A number of evangelical Christians who live in the South are also critical of Beck’s fusion of theology and politics.

“Say what you want, but as a Southern Christian, I’m pretty sure my God doesn’t like politicians behaving like diamond pinky ring wearing TV preachers telling lies and trying to guilt people into donating their dollars to false causes,” Stephani Scruggs, a resident of Pensacola, Florida, posted on her Facebook page Tuesday. Scruggs says she is the former national co-chairman of the Glenn Beck inspired 9-12 Project

Criticisms of Beck’s attack on evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Cruz were echoed by several participants in the February 25 Breitbart focus groups conducted of evangelical Christians in Tennessee who said they intended to vote in the March 1 GOP Presidential primary in the Volunteer State.

“It has been very disconcerting to see Beck traveling with Cruz,” Elizabeth, who voted for Cruz in the Tennessee primary and participated in one of the February 25 focus groups, tells Breitbart News.

“I have had a nagging concern about Cruz’s integrity. His association with Beck confirms this,” she says.

“Beck is not reticent about pushing his Mormon faith, which from an evangelical perspective is heretical. Apparently Cruz has no discomfort being called the fulfillment of a false prophecy,” she adds.

“The fact that evangelicals have not fully embraced Cruz but Mormons have is troubling to someone who voted for Cruz but now questions the decision,” Elizabeth concludes.

“I am disgusted by Beck’s comments and he should be ashamed for casting stones,” Jim, a Trump supporter and small business owner who participated in the focus groups, tells Breitbart News.

“Are we counting sins? Let’s see: Cruz has lied on multiple occasions, smeared Trump horribly, wasn’t tithing while making over $250,000,” he adds.

“I tuned Glenn Beck out a long time ago,” Martha, a Trump alternate delegate and focus group participant, tells Breitbart News. (Note: Two other participants in the focus groups ran as Cruz delegates in Tennessee.)

“I think he has issues and is in no position to determine who is or is not listening to anything or anyone, including God,” she adds.

“His hysterics do nothing but turn me off, whether it’s this or anything else,” she says of Beck.

“I think he has done some good exposing some of those leftist relationships that he has exposed. But, once he starts on opinion, he always seems totally off the wall to me. Have thought this a long time,” Martha concludes.

“I was offended by Glenn Beck’s comments, as I was by Romney’s speech several weeks ago. ‘My God’ doesn’t tell me how to vote,” Aime Molina, another focus group participant, tells Breitbart News.

“I believe God expects me to be involved in the political process for the good of His people and the advancement of His Kingdom,” Molina continues.

“I believe I am called to vote according to the morals and teachings of Jesus. I believe we should vote for the candidate who will enforce the expectations of personal accountability for one’s life and actions, and the protection of our Country and its citizens,” she continues.

“I don’t believe that God endorses a specific candidate, and Beck’s comments seem judgmental and manipulative to me. I am not anti-Trump; he is my second choice, but for the record I voted for Ted Cruz. And I’m still offended by Glenn Beck,” Molina adds.

The February 25 Breitbart focus groups of evangelical Christians in Tennessee confirmed the polling research of the Barna Group, the leading pollster of evangelical Christians, which found that committed evangelicals are more supportive of Cruz and cultural evangelicals are more supportive of Trump.

Glenn Beck: ‘Prepare for all-out war’

against America

Glenn Beck

Former Fox News host-turned-media-giant Glenn Beck issued a dire warning to America, telling citizens to be on guard and prepare – all-out war is coming. “I would suggest that you prepare for all-out war,” he said in a recent broadcast, Raw Story reported. “War unlike we’ve ever seen in our lifetime because that’s what I believe is coming, unfortunately. I’m hoping that there’s a way to put this genie back into the bottle, but I don’t see it.”war drums

Beck said he feared “losing our country” and said another Sept. 11-type attack would prove a devastation to the nation, Mediaite reported.

“We talk about World War II, where they did shock and awe,” Beck’s co-host Stu Burguiere said. “Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of civilians died. It was not a pretty picture. And obviously war is hell, but is there any way that America — with the backbone we have today, with the 99 percenters and Occupy Wall Street as part of this country, with all that — they are going to accept a war effort like that?” 

Beck said the next truly devastating terrorist attack will be perpetrated by “home-grown” terrorists, and “they will be in multiple cities, so you won’t know” what to expect next.

He said, in context of discussing the ISIS vow to harm the president and raise the terrorist flag over the White House: “Did you see what ISIS came out and said? That ISIS, their number one goal now is to hit America and kill the president. I cannot imagine. That would change perspectives entirely.’

“We got the Patriot Act the last time. Can you even imagine what the Department of Homeland Security would do if they, God forbid, hurt the president?”muslim-obama

Beck also said a different president – a Republican chief – would prove the better defender of America in a coming all-out war.

“We would bomb the snot out of them, if you had a Republican,” he said. “If we had President Barack Obama, I think we would just go on some apology tour. But if we had some economic collapse where people were frightened – really, truly frightened – and then on top of it we had some really bad terrorist attack, I think we would.”was


 

Glenn Beck Warns of Coming Christian Holocaust


Posted By Michael Becker Michael BeckerApril 12, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://joeforamerica.com/2015/04/glenn-beck-urges-americans-not-to-play-politics-over-the-coming-christian-holocaust/radical-islam-threat

We want to be crystal clear on this subject.  First, a Christian holocaust is happening right now at the hands of Muslims in the Middle East.  The reason the Christian holocaust hasn’t been stopped can be summed up in one word:  politics.

When the US left Iraq, excuse us, when the Barack Obama pulled US forces out of Iraq before their job was done, there were about 1.5 million Christians living in Iraq.  And they were living in peace.  The pull out was a cheap political maneuver at the hands of a cheap political whore, US President Barack Obama.

Today, there are about 400,000 Christians left in Iraq and they are under siege by ISIS forces, having been given three options. One, convert to Islam.  Two, leave.  Three, die.

This is a problem that isn’t going to be solved from the pulpit.  We should certainly be praying for Christians in Muslim countries, but it’s going to take some serious military intervention to stop this holocaust.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka is an expert in the Middle East and here’s what he had to say last year.

…“in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.”Christian Persecution

Gorka points out that, over the last 20 years, America has stood up around the world to save Muslims. “Whether it was to save the Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for a humanitarian operation to save the remaining Christians in Iraq,” he said. “It is time for the American people and our representatives to do something for our co-religionists remaining in the Middle East.

… “Let’s face it, this is a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.”

The facts are clear to all who would see.  Muslims have been butchering and enslaving their neighbors for 1,400 years.  Barack Obama and his enabling media partners go out of their way to compare Muslims to Christian missionaries.  They ignore the biggest difference, and they do it intentionally.

  • Muslims immigrate into a country and insist that their culture be adopted – Sharia Law and all.  As they gain more power – or if they’re simply an invading force – they declare that Islam is the state religion and all must convert, serve Islam in a slave-master fashion, leave, or die.

  • Christian missionaries, on the other hand, immigrate to serve the people of a different country.  They are frequently medical missionaries who bring healing along with the Gospel.  They serve the people, they don’t enslave or butcher them.

Again, that’s a difference that Barack Obama and his ilk never face.

With respect to Beck, here’s what Dr. Gorka says.

[T]he mainstream media is in full support of the White House narrative “that the President single-handedly killed Osama Bin Laden, and that Al Qaeda is now on the ropes; therefore, jihad must be shriveling up around the world.” This myopic strategy of only targeting Al Qaeda has provided great opportunities for other jihadists and has given rise to ISIS.

“On top of that,” Gorka asserts that, “the mainstream media are warped in terms of their world view.” According to Breitbart’s national security expert, the media is “post-modernist, sophisticated, and secularist. So when it comes to the idea of religious persecution, they say, ‘Well who really cares because I don’t believe in God. If you are not sophisticated enough to be a post-modernist secularist… tough on you!’”

Gorka didn’t finish there with his scathing indictment of the mainstream media. He added that it is their racism that will let this genocide of Christians continue. “To the mainstream media,” Gorka charged, “the dark skin person always has to be the victim. Either the Hamas terrorist in Gaza, the Nicaraguan gang bangers coming across the border likened to juvenile political refugees… the idea that the white skin Christian or the Israelis as victims, that goes against every narrative this media wishes to pedal. They are necessarily so locked into their own ideological vision of the world.”

Imperial Islamic President ObamaBarack Obama, the media, and the Democratic Party as a whole are locked into the belief – as an article of faith – that America is the cause of all that is bad in the world.  Actually, make that “white America.”

Combine that with an ideology – Islam – that takes it as an article of faith that they have the right and responsibility to butcher “non-believers” and you’ve got the perfect storm that IS a Christian holocaust.

This problem needs to be solved politically and militarily.  We need to take the gloves off, understand that Muslims are at war with us, and act accordingly.  The Rules of Engagement put in place by George W Bush and then softened significantly by Barack Obama aren’t going to make it.

Glenn Beck Reveals the Life-Changing ‘Pivot Point’ He Has Kept Hidden From Almost Everyone for Five Years


 

by Erica Ritz / Nov. 10, 2014

URL of Original Posting Site: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/11/10/glenn-beck-reveals-the-life-changing-pivot-point-he-has-kept-hidden-from-almost-everyone-for-five-years/

Glenn Beck on Monday revealed the true extent of his health issues, saying he can no longer keep what has happened a secret from his friends, his staff or audience, whom he considers to be his family.

If you have sensed a change in Beck — maybe you even thought he was losing interest in his program — Beck said it is because he was told he may only have several functional years left, and his health conditions were causing such excruciating pain that it was difficult to do live programming.

“Tonight’s show is not for the casual fan or, really, anyone in the press,” Beck said. “This is a one-on-one between friends. No one in the media ever does a show like this, because it is crazy. … But I believe that by not talking with you openly, it destroys everything of real meaning and value — namely, our trust.”

“I have never lied to you, but I have omitted a few really important facts because — they scared me,” Beck admitted, beginning to swallow back tears. “I didn’t have any answers, and the answers I was being given at the time meant … the end of our time together.”

Beck said that five years ago, around the time of his Restoring Honor event in Washington, D.C., God began to tell him that he was standing in the wrong place. At around the same time, his health issues began, starting with vocal cord paralysis, eyesight problems and what doctors at first believed was a painful form of neuropathy.

“While I was at Fox, the pain would get so bad that my camera crew, our executive producer Tiffany and I, had worked out hand signals so they would know when to take the camera off of me,” Beck revealed. “We didn’t know at the time what was causing me to feel as though, out of nowhere, my hands and feet, or arms and legs would feel like someone had just crushed them, set them on fire or pushed broken glass into them.”

Beck said that while he was in intense pain, something unusual was happening that he actually thought was an advantage in his business: he only ever needed two to four hours of sleep a night.

“Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell you if it was a month ago, a year ago or when we were in high school. I then began to lose names to faces and over time, entire conversations would go away.”

Beck said doctors told him it was normal for someone processing as much information as he was, and the phenomenon has been discussed by figures like Winston Churchill.

“While essential facts remained, life became fuzzy,” Beck continued. “This was happening at the same time the pain was becoming a very real issue. They told me there was no connection between the two. Then came macular dystrophy and vocal paralysis — all disconnected, or so they thought.”

Beck said a string of doctors, medications and diets only left him with more questions, and none really improved his condition. His health issues were among the reasons he decided to move to Dallas — a warmer climate than New York City.

“Then … my body began going into a seizure-like state,” Beck said, adding that the episodes most frequently occurred on planes or after a large performance or speech.

“Most afternoons my hands would start to shake, or my hands and feet began to curl and eventually — if I didn’t stop and rest, I began to curl into a fetal position,” Beck said. “This has baffled some of the best doctors in the world. It has frightened me and my family, and I didn’t know what was happening.”

Beck said that shortly before the convulsions began, he checked into a hospital in New York City for extensive testing, and asked some of the best doctors in the world to look at him.

In one of the most frightening moments of his life, he was tested for traumatic brain injury and found that he was functioning in the bottom tenth percentile.

“I was told at the time that I had anywhere between five and ten years before I would no longer be able to function,” Beck said, pausing to collect himself. “I was told to go home, take at least a year off, and enjoy the days with my children.”

“My pivot point came one night shortly after returning home,” Beck continued. “We were all in the kitchen as a family and I had an attack. … I saw the faces of my children, and the idea that I would someday not remember them, nor would I remember my soon-to-be-born grandchild, hit me like a bag of bricks. And we looked at each other and I asked, ‘What am I doing? Maybe we should all move up to the mountains and spend all the time I have left together.’”

Beck said his doctors told him that if he didn’t stop working, his condition would get worse. But he was “haunted” by the fact that doctors told him to stop, and God did not.

Beck said his “ability to function grew to be so bad” that they were forced to do more taped pieces for television, and on radio, Beck’s co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere — two of a handful of people who knew about Beck’s condition — would sometimes have to cover for Beck in the middle of a sentence.

“People, even my senior staff began to ask: ‘Does Glenn even care about what we are building?’ They didn’t know,” Beck said. “The answer was, ‘Yes, deeply.’ But it was growing harder for me every day to focus. I didn’t know at the time, but my left brain was losing a great deal of functionality.”

Beck said that for personal and professional reasons, he did not want to share what was happening to him until now. But he said it grew “almost impossible to hide” his condition as time went on.

Gray had to fill in at the last minute during a concert series with the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, and once, his friends and his wife had to carry him from an airplane to a hotel room.

But Beck said his wife, Tania, had it the hardest. Beck began to cry as he recalled how, on the many days he could not feel his hands or they were in extraordinary pain, she would tie his shoes or button his shirts.

Tania did it all “with kindness, love and joy,” Beck said, wiping away tears. “It has taught us about our marriage, and it has made our marriage very, very strong.”

“Meanwhile, while this was going on, I had a company to run. Over the last two years, I began to search for my replacements,” Beck said. “Pat and Stu for my radio show, Buck Sexton or Dana for TV. Almost everyone in my company has been looked at for what piece of me they could fill. But the hardest part to fill was someone that could think completely out of the box creatively, and knew how to tell a story.”

Beck found that person in Ben McPherson, a masterful painter and filmmaker who heads the American Dream Labs.

“Just as we were finishing Man in the Moon … I told him everything about what was going on, and asked him if he would do me a favor,” Beck said. “I asked him if he would learn all of these stories and complete each tale, if the time would ever come that I could no longer remember them.”

Beck said his condition continued to get worse, and he began to believe that maybe he did need to walk away from everything to spend more time with his family.

“I asked God: ‘Am I done? Can I put my sword down now?’ The answer was always ‘No,’” Beck recalled.

That was when Beck found the Carrick Brain Centers, a place that he has seen “work miracles” on people.

“After a few short visits, they found that I had several things going on, from an autoimmune disorder to adrenal fatigue. They also found the connection to everything that was going on, and for the first time gave us hope that we could reboot my system — not just stop it, but reverse things,” Beck said. “Me never having to sleep was finally understandable. The last sign of adrenal failure is a hyperextension of your adrenal glands. In other words, I didn’t need sleep. I could have been lifting cars during my time at Fox!”

“But now that I had blown out my system, all I could do is sleep,” Beck continued. “My immune system was looking at these natural hormones as an infection and so my body was trying to kill its most basic functions. I also appeared at the time to be in the early stages of Addison’s disease.”

Beck said his doctors told him he should not have been standing, and only his faith in God had kept him moving. If he had remained in New York City, they said he probably wouldn’t be alive today.

“Over the last ten months, I did all kinds of tests and therapies, which included everything from electric stimulation to weird gyroscope tests like the astronauts use where they’re flipping you around,” Beck remarked. “After months of treatment and completely changing the way I eat, sleep, work and live, along with ongoing hormone treatment and intensive physical therapy, I have reversed the process. Some of the physical scars will be with me for the rest of my life … but my brain is back online in a big way.”

Beck said the story is so remarkable that, if he and his wife hadn’t lived it, they wouldn’t believe it.

During his last day of therapy this summer, Beck took the traumatic brain injury test once more and the results showed him to be in the 90th percentile. He has since received a clean bill of health.

“Rush Limbaugh says he does the show with half his brain tied behind his back,” Beck joked. “With me, it’s actually been true. But now, it’s back online.”

“Why am I telling you all of this? Because you and I are family, and for us to survive, we need to trust each other,” Beck said. “When I first spoke of my alcoholic pivot point on the air in the 90s, I was actually trying to end my career. But It had the opposite effect. I got to know my audience for the first time, and I realized we are all hiding something, whether it is physical, mental or spiritual pain. We need to know that we are all in this together.”

Beck said his health condition gave him yet another pivot point, and everything he does now has “new meaning,” and will change to focus on “love and truth and reconciliation.”

“For those who question why I have been saying, ‘We need to love one another,’ they didn’t know that when you are faced with a real shortened timeline of your life, you begin to measure everything and its worth,” Beck said.

“Maybe you didn’t even notice, but I have been gone,” Beck concluded. “But I’m happy to say, I’m back. But with all of this time left, what do I spend it on? I have pivoted. I know what life is about and it isn’t about money, fame or division. It isn’t about politics or a 5 p.m. TV show that continues to highlight problems. This summer we went into production on a pilot that will completely change what I do on TV. But that really is only one piece. In the macro, it’s about me changing me and you changing you.”

Beck said no one is telling stories to help America hold onto its children, and “we need to tell the stories of love and courage where the good guys win.”

“I downloaded the best stories I have ever written, stories I feel I was born to tell,” Beck said. “Now they all fit together, and Ben and I are ready to roll up our sleeves and go to work, as we continue to build TheBlaze and this network. We will become the change that we seek. With your help, we will start a revolution of hope. I choose hope.”

Could this be the Democratic strategy for the next two years?

Ballot-2014

On Facebook this morning, Glenn shared some thoughts on the midterms and presents a cause of deaththeory for how the next two years could go. Is a GOP victory next Tuesday a good thing? Or does it matter at all? Read the below from Glenn for his thoughts

Hola Señorita Hillary. A terrifying scenario come to me this am that I believe it right. If it is, it does mean the end of the republic as we know it.

The Democrats would love to win sure, but let the GOP have the House and Senate. Because the president is going to sign the amnesty order, Congress will go nuts (to a point) and the Democrats will win in the long run.

Mark my words, as the president uses the executive order, a huge media campaign that “humanizes” the illegal will be everywhere. (Interesting how we are dehumanizing babies and the Palin’s at the same time). The campaign will be complete and overwhelming. People will say: “How can you not let them in? You just hate people who are different?” We will no longer be able to talk about facts.

The GOP will then give up the fight, the president will win, the Democrats never really had to pick a side and the States Formal Sacred Cow of Policital CorrectnessRepublicans are remembered as racists.

So yippie, go Republicans!

My predictions are pretty accurate just never with the timing right. So maybe this doesn’t happen early next year, but it will. (I think it will because it stops the GOP from being able to control the agenda at all. They will only be able to do this and nothing else. No reform, no hearings, no nothing.)

Who will be the lame duck?

Say hello to President Hillary.

Glenn Beck revisits his warnings about Iraq


http://conservativebyte.com/2014/06/glenn-beck-revisits-warnings-iraq/

Posted on by Conservative Byte

Caliphate-Coming

It is amazing how easy it is to predict the Obama implosions.
Check it out:

Glenn will be digging up some of the chalkboards and infographics he drew up during his Fox News days to break down what is currently unfolding in Syria, Iraq, and throughout the Middle East. Glenn has been talking about likelihood of an Islamic caliphate, or state, for a number of years, and now, as Baghdad hangs in the balance, it looks like the rest of the media is taking notice.

Because of the life that has already been lost fighting Islamic extremists in Iraq, Pat was frank in his explanation of why he would like to see American troops on the ground in Baghdad.

“Got to send 5,000 to 10,000 troops back in there,” Pat said. “You have to defend it, beat this back. You have to go all out and kill these guys. They are bloodthirsty murders, the worst of the worst. What has the last twelve years been about?”

“You know what it’s been about,” Glenn interjected. “It’s been about control, power, and manipulation. It is about building a base there in Iraq.”

“[But] you are going to lose that,” Pat added. “It just falls into the hands of these dirt bags.”

While Glenn recognizes that it is nearly impossible to reconcile the idea that the sacrifice made in Iraq was for naught, he absolutely will not support the deployment of American military personnel. In fact, he “hopes to God we detonate” we detonate the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

Obama: The Disciple of Saul Alinsky Leads America Towards Full Blown Socialism


http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/01/obama-disciple-saul-alinsky-lead-america-towards-full-blown-socialism/#4Vuck4LGWucQ8l4F.99

Written by Leon Puissegur

In the previous article, we looked at 8 rules that Saul Alinsky laid out in his book Rules for Radicals.  Barack Obama has been following those rules one by one.  However, there are other rules that follow in the book.  One rule, mentioned by Glenn Beck, was rule 12 and that one rule seems to be one of the most workable rules that President Obama has used to the max! That rule is as follows:

Rule 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Saul Alinsky:

  • Identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow, and tactics that ordinary citizens could employ, as a means of gaining public power
  • Created a blueprint for revolution under the banner of “social change”
  • Two of his most notable modern-day disciples are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Born to Russian-Jewish parents in Chicago in 1909, Saul Alinsky was a Communist/Marxist fellow-traveler who helped establish the tactics of infiltration — coupled with a measure of confrontation — that have been central to revolutionary political movements in the United States in recent decades. He never joined the Communist Party but instead, as David Horowitz puts it, became an avatar of the post-modern left.

“Alinsky was … convinced that large-scale socialist transformation would require an alliance between the struggling middle class and the poor. The key to radical social change, Alinsky thought, was to turn the wrath of America’s middle class against large corporations.”

In the Alinsky model, “organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution” — a wholesale revolution whose ultimate objective is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly oppressed segment of the population, and the radical transformation of America’s social and economic structure. The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels, and Lenin predicted — a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and wholly unworthy of salvation. Thus, the theory goes, the people will settle for nothing less than that status quo’s complete collapse — to be followed by the erection of an entirely new system upon its ruins. Toward that end, they will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision, and who profess to clearly understand what types of societal “changes” are needed.
As Alinsky put it: “A reformation means that the masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won’t act for change but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution.”
“[W]e are concerned,” Alinsky elaborated, “with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace, cooperation, equal and full opportunities for education, full and useful employment, health, and the creation of those circumstances in which men have the chance to live by the values that give meaning to life. We are talking about a mass power organization which will change the world … This means revolution.”

John Perazzo at Discover the Networks writes in his profile of Alinsky:

But Alinsky’s brand of revolution was not characterized by dramatic, sweeping, overnight transformations of social institutions. As Richard Poe puts it, “Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties.” He advised organizers and their disciples to quietly, subtly gain influence within the decision-making ranks of these institutions, and to introduce changes from that platform. This was precisely the tactic of “infiltration” advocated by Lenin and Stalin. As Communist International General Secretary Georgi Dimitroff told the Seventh World Congress of the Comintern in 1935:

“Comrades, you remember the ancient tale of the capture of Troy. Troy was inaccessible to the armies attacking her, thanks to her impregnable walls. And the attacking army, after suffering many sacrifices, was unable to achieve victory until, with the aid of the famous Trojan horse, it managed to penetrate to the very heart of the enemy’s camp.”

Alinsky died in 1972, but his legacy lives on as a staple of leftist method, a veritable blueprint for revolution (which he and his disciples euphemistically refer to as “change”). Two of his most notable modern-day disciples are Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
In 1969 Hillary Clinton wrote her 92-page senior thesis on Alinsky’s theories. A great admirer of Alinsky’s blend of ruthless and stealth activist tactics, Hillary personally interviewed the famed author for her project. She concluded her thesis by stating:

“Alinsky is regarded by many as the proponent of a dangerous socio/political philosophy. As such, he has been feared — just as Eugene Debs [the five-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President] or Walt Whitman or Martin Luther King has been feared, because each embraced the most radical of political faiths — democracy.”

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama never personally met Saul Alinsky. By the time Alinsky died in 1972, Obama was only 11 years old. But as a young man, he became a master practitioner of Alinsky’s methods. In 1985 a small group of 20-odd churches in Chicago offered Obama a job helping residents of poor, predominantly black, Far South Side neighborhoods. Accepting that opportunity, Obama became Director of the Developing Communities Project, where he worked for the next three years on initiatives that ranged from job training to school reform to hazardous waste cleanup. David Freddoso, author of the 2008 book The Case Against Barack Obama, summarizes Obama’s community-organizing efforts as follows:

“He pursued manifestly worthy goals; protecting people from asbestos in government housing projects is obviously a good thing and a responsibility of the government that built them. But [in every case except one] the proposed solution to every problem on the South Side was a distribution of government funds …”

Three of Obama’s mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation. (The Developing Communities Project itself was an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi for the creation of “a more just and democratic society” is rooted firmly in the Alinsky method.)

One of Obama’s early mentors in the Alinsky method, Mike Kruglik, would later say the following about Obama:

“He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.”

Here we see just how Obama got his ideas and they just do not work with a nation under a “free enterprise” traditions!

For several years, Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method. Also, beginning in the mid-1980s, Obama worked with ACORN, the Alinskyite grassroots political organization that grew out of George Wiley‘s National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO).

We have shown just what plan Obama has been following for years, including some of his “mentors” of this Socialist ideology that he has put forth without fear because he views himself as King of the Former United States.  If “WE THE PEOPLE” do not vote people into the Senate to change the balance this year, the United States will be no more, and time will only prove this to be true when they begin making more laws against the Constitution and dissolving our rights one at a time.  We’ve laid out their plans; now it is up to us to ensure that freedom prevails and not a kingdom of Obama.

Beck and Levin Team up on Support for Convention of States


    http://conservativebyte.com/2013/12/beck-levin-team-support-convention-states/#Di1wSgEDBcK0tChi.99

Huge news. When giants  like this team up you can know that this is real. Now you need to do  something. Check it out:

In this 4-minute audio clip, you’ll hear that Mark Levin and Glenn Beck  have buried old hatchets from past feuds and united around Article V initiatives  like Compact for America (CFA) and Convention of States (COS).

While there are other worthy Article V initiatives, COS and CFA in particular  form a long game (COS) and a short game (CFA) for We the People to take back our  country from an out-of-control federal government that is condemning our  children and grandchildren to modern-day debt bondage.

Patriots Clean Up the Capital


http://eaglerising.com/2250/patriots-clean-capital/#OOs2ymQZk6YPKFHO.99

By 

fixupdcThis has been a big weekend for democracy and demonstration in Washington, D.C. On Friday many truckers met to drive through D.C. in an attempt to disrupt traffic while letting Congress know that truckers across the country were displeased with the gridlock they saw in the legislature. Then on Sunday, a group calling themselves the Million Vets March on the Monuments, met at the WWII Memorial to express their displeasure that the Obama administration would use our national parks as a political tool to bludgeon the Republican Party with.

Perhaps the most important demonstration of the weekend though, happened on Saturday. On Saturday, hundreds of average American citizens showed up in D.C. for a clean-up day that organizers are calling the “Fix Up D.C.” National Day of Service. Inspired at least in part by the work of “the One Man Memorial Militia,” Chris Cox, who earlier this week was told by the National Parks Service (NPS) that he had to stop his cleaning and maintaining of the areas around the Lincoln and WWII Memorials.

“We came up with this idea when we saw the man from South Carolina come out and mow the lawn. We thought all of us could do the same thing,” said Ellen Wheeler, director of messaging for FreedomWorks. “Congress may try to shutdown the government but they can’t shutdown the people.”

The hundreds who gathered came at the behest of the FreedomWorks Foundation, the Tea Party Patriots, and media entrepreneur Glenn Beck of the Blaze. The idea was to empower ordinary Americans “to make a difference and do what government is not doing,” Deneen Borelli, who is a Liberty Alliance partner, explained.

Several prominent Tea Party leaders spoke to the volunteers, who were also addressed by Glenn Beck and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). The volunteers worked to clean up the area surrounding the National Mall which has not been maintained over the last two weeks (12 days) because of the government shutdown. Families picked up trash, raked leaves and worked to make the area more presentable. The hundreds of gathered volunteers may have had different reasons for being there, but the overall goal was to take care of our memorials… not the government’s memorials… OURS.

Former Marine, Ian Grinnals, made the six hour drive from Syracuse, New York to be at the cleanup day said it best, “I want to make sure these memorials stay clean for future veterans, especially veterans on these honor flights that are coming here usually on their last leg. They should have a place to come and be remembered.” Yes, sir.
