I happened to run across this blog and had to applaude. I also wanted to share it with all of you.
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.
If you have questions about the New World Order, the elite bankers, the Federal Reserve -you can find more information on this “Grand Delusion” Blog.
If you know anything about “reverse psychology” - you would know that the fake little war between the Obama Administration and FOX News did nothing more than to drive more people to FOX News to see what all the fuss was about. Borderline liberals flocked to FOX News because they believed that “if Obama was trying to silence FOX, they must be telling the truth.” Oh – how easily fooled we are!
OUR OUTRAGE = A MASSIVE, PEACEFUL UPRISING/REVOLUTION? UMM. NO.
How many of us are opposed to the way our government is running our country? How many are opposed to the war? How many are opposed to the Federal Reserve? How many of us are frustrated, fed-up, sick and tired or afraid of what our future holds? How many of us now view our government as the enemy? How many of us understand that in order to defeat any enemy, we need to think like the enemy? What are they thinking?
Don’t underestimate the powers that be. Don’t underestimate those in control. They full well know that the only way they can reach their goal for the New World Order and One World Government is by controlling the opposition and making sure that the truth is kept from us. In fact, their biggest fear is that we will learn the truth because the truth WILL set us free! What chance would they have if we all rose up tomorrow against tyranny, against them? They wouldn’t have a chance! There are way too many of us. So don’t you think they have the foresight, the power, the money, the influence needed in order to carry out controlling the opposition by leading it? Yes! Of course they do!
NOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND “WHY” – LET’S TALK ABOUT “HOW”
One good way to determine if someone is “controlled opposition” is to not just look at what they are saying – but, more importantly, look at what they are not saying!
TACTIC #1 – CONTROLLED TRUTH
You will get just enough truth, but you will never get all of it, for it you did, you would surely rise up. Look at the “Federal Reserve.” We know just enough about it to know we don’t like it. Many of us want it audited and/or abolished. What did Henry Ford say about the Federal Reserve?
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. –Henry Ford
Glenn Beck recently put together a very nice documentary called, “Live Free or Die.” While much truth was exhibited in his documentary, he stopped short at revealing the whole truth. Don’t you think it would have been important to know that Prescott Bush (George W. Bush’s grand-father) played a major role in funding Hitler’s rise to power? If Beck wanted to arm you with the whole truth, he would not have left this information out. Especially if it is “his calling” to warn you about our government and what they are capable of!
TACTIC #2 & 3 – MIND BENDING and DISINFORMATION
Beck instructs you to “Question Boldly” – but only those questions that he approves. Don’t you dare question 9/11!
How many times has Beck said that the 9/11 Truther’s only account for 5% of the population? The truth is that the majority of the population question 9/11 and one third of the population believe that our government was involved.
Even if you are as dead set against the 9/11 Truth Movement as Beck claims to be – don’t you deserve the truth about the number of people who question 9/11? Shouldn’t you be told about the 50 Senior Military, Intelligence and Government Officials who question the 9/11 Commission Report? Shouldn’t we discuss Senator Max Cleland – Former member of the 9/11 Commission, who resigned in December 2003 saying “I, as a member of the [9/11] Commission, cannot look any American in the eye… It is a national scandal… this White House wants to cover [9/11] up.”
Are you asking yourself why you didn’t know these things? The reason is because “they don’t want you to know.” You will not find the truth on mainstream news, not even FOX.
If you are led to believe that only a small, kooky minority question 9/11, or anything else for that matter – you probably won’t research it for yourself, but if you knew that the majority question it, you would either stand with the majority or spend more of your own time looking at the data and form your own opinions.
So, if the majority of the population question 9/11 – why did Glenn Beck attempt to ruin Debra Medina for not disavowing any group questioning 9/11? Seems pretty irrational once you know the truth about the numbers, doesn’t it? In fact, Debra Medina should have responded, “Senator Max Cleland, former member of the 9/11 commissioner resigned over a possible cover-up and the majority of the American people have questions about 9/11 – so, in my desire to represent the people, I fully support questioning the 9/11 Commission Report.”
How many of you, without looking into any data or doing any of your own research are using terms such as “Truthers”, “Birthers” and “Tenthers” and attaching negative connotations to these terms against the groups and experts who have done their research?
Are you beginning to understand how you are being influenced through mind-bending and disinformation?

WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING
If someone is placed into a position of amassing a great following for the purpose of controlling and deceiving – they are not going to appear as a wolf. Glenn Beck has sparkly blue eyes, a great smile and a wonderful personality. It is very hard not to like him – even when you understand that he is choosing monetary wealth over the well-being of his fellow man.
Many people believed that Josef Stalin was a good man, handsome with great personality. Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “The world has never seen greater devotion, determination, and self sacrifice, that have been displayed by the Russian people and their armies under the leadership of Marshall Josef Stalin.” In total, the estimated number of people killed under Stalin ranges between 10 million to 60 million.
Even Hitler was once loved by the people. Don’t think for one second that a charismatic leader cannot lead you astray.
WHAT IS A JUDAS SHEEP?
Sheep are innate followers and very easily led astray. In New Zealand about 40 million sheep are led to slaughter each year. A specially selected castrated male sheep aptly called the “Judas” sheep leads the unwitting sheep to the killing floor. Unaware of what is about to happen, the sheep blindly fall in behind the Judas sheep and follow him to their deaths.
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 seen 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 went the way of Lou Dobbs.
This is a wonderful breakdown of controlled opposition. I'm sure I'll find a place to post this to wake up the traditional republican crowd. You could replace the word conservative for liberal and change the name from Beck to Chomsky and still have a great article!
Thank you, Berry! I have posted this piece elsewhere. It gives pause to ones' thoughts...Until the other day I had never even heard of Glenn Beck. It does make sense though!
Can you imagine what it would be like to watch a news "personality" (for lack of better term) that called us to remember that we were more alike than different? One that asked bold questions, but not to intimidate, or cause fear, but to find common ground or facilitate understanding? Can you imagine what your very cells would feel like when you watched a show like that? Can you hear the trillions of cellular sighs coming from your own body as this person on your television encouraged us to reach out to one another in trust and equanimity? For the exactly 30 minutes total that person would be on the air, wouldn't it just be so fun to experience for once? :)
Much love and light,
Just to be fair to the religious right wingnuts who would rather go to war than see gay people enjoy the rights and privileges of marriage, here is an excellent documentary featuring the celebrity rise of Michael Moore, and the very disappointing hypocritical results that manifest, even with our beloved Mike M.
As always, the other nine segments are right there in the "related videos" right column...
Michel Chossudovsky was my wake up call to the realization of "manufactured dissent" (War and Globalization - The Truth Behind September 11 (9/11) go to 1:29:40 for his piece on manufacturing dissent). It changed the way I watched news programs. I soon became bored with the controlled media methodology and have not watched any for some time now. As Chossudovsky says in that piece, "the boundaries of dissent are already established".
This helps to explain the somewhat unexpected behavior of Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore when it came to openly discussing what really happened on September 11. They were already well contained, by peer pressure, monetary concerns, professional concerns, etc. within those well established boundaries that seem to take on an organic life of their own once initiated by major media outlets and celebrity talking heads...
We must and have become our own roving reporters and news anchors. In some way, it may have been the best thing to happen so we would be forced to re-ignite our own divine sovereignty and personal response ability. This is true so many times past, that the very thing they intended to use to control us becomes catalyst for our willful liberation from the lie.
A few other noteable celebrities I was so shocked (at the time) to see fall prey to the lies were comedian Dennis Miller and writer Christopher Hitchens. And then lately, Bill Maher, host of Real Time on HBO. He was on the cutting edge of challenging the BS status quo at one time - so much so that he got himself fired from one of his shows some time back for saying the "wrong thing" on network TV. And now, the money is so good that he is overtly proud to be the one who ran off some 9-11 Truthers from his HBO show a few years ago when they were yelling out to him to look in to it.
Bill is a perfect example, just like Beck, because he still uses a lot of truth and integrity. I truly do not think he knows how much he has strayed from the straight and narrow. I sense there comes a time in a celebrity's career when the money and fame is so intoxicating that it leads him or her to be self-delusional. That is what I have seen in Bill Maher anyway from early on to now. This could also be the case for Glenn Beck, although I have never had the resonating feeling that there was much integrity in Beck. He always seemed like a clueless delusional clown completely enamored with himself. To me, Beck is a perfect reflection of the apparent lack of integrity and simple common sense in the American collective right now.
People eat at fast food places, buy buckets of buttery popcorn at the theatre, sit in their loungers drinking beer and smoking cigs, and then they want someone to quick fix them with pills, and they want to be fixed now, and then go back to their deleterious destructive habits. The Glenn Becks and GW's are simply the pimples on the collective American face. They are a wake up call to humanity, not the enemy...
I agree with you about fame and wealth having a corrupting influence. I'm seeing this happen to even our beloved Alex Jones - saw a clip of him disrupting a protest recently I think it was posted at Rense.com. This is the kind of protest he advocates on his radio program but he completely kills it on this video. I guess anyone can have their bad days but I think you are right - the power that comes along with fame can leave many people with a lack of perspective that can eventually lead to corruption. The fact that Alex continues to refuse to cover the alien/ufo issues is starting to look like controlled oposition.
I couldn't stand to watch the entire Michael Moore film - I still think he did a wonderful thing for 9/11 truth but he sure plays completely into the fake left-right paradigm these days.
Hope you know about the videos and podcasts at www.corbettreport.com. I think he is doing exactly what you are envisioning, except it's only being broadcast on the internet. I hate to use the word "only" though as there are now more people getting their news here than newspapers and being that they are actually getting the truth on line it can only be a matter of time before TV will have to get real or loose all their advertisers.
