Two Classics From Glenn Beck [OregonMuse]

OK, so I know that the opinions about Glenn Beck on this blog are decidedly mixed. But even so, here he's mercilessly mocking Keith Olbermann, and it's absolutely brutal. If this were an actual, real-life flogging, Keefums would look like Jim Caviezel in 'The Passion'. Although in Olbermann's case, never was there more of a pompous buffoon who deserved it more.




When I first listened to this, I walked around the house saying "Brr-rrr-rrrrrrrr-eittttbarttt! Tell me about that scoundrel Brr-rrr-rrrrrrrr-eittttbarttt!" over and over again until Mrs. Muse told me to STFU.

And below the fold, Beck's classic post-election gloat-fest from 2010. You can skip the cheesy intro, and pick it up around the 1:25 mark.

8 Beck just opened a Washington bureau. To get a WH correspondent. Should get more interesting from here on in. So far, the folks he has hired have a brass set. As long as he doesn't hire hanity or any of the fox girls, he'll be good to go.

I know one thing. He'd have hired Breitbart from the beginning. And they could have had some sick conversations that we'd find hysterically funny. Beck is old but not old, old.

As with ace, the republican party is dead to me now. However, we now know the reason the tea party was absent in 2012 was because of IRS intimidation, which continues to this day. The dems have found out they can use the tools of government to crush opposition. They've finished their long march through the institutions. The fight is over.

Sorry for the gloominess--just got done with a week of travel where, because I was unwilling to put my hands up in front of a government goon and have a naked picture taken of me, I got felt up instead by some TSA window-licker.

Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

19 The giggle-fests on his program was one of the reasons I stopped listening to Beck's show. The endless, never-getting-to-the-point, easily derailed assertion was another. The fact that his show was taken off local radio was probably the big reason, however.

He's ever so slowly turning to a stance of active rebellion against this government. Having a national radio show I know that, under the law, he can't really call for it, but I feel there's going to come a day when he pulls out the stops and starts calling for it. Not for violence, but for a disruptive rebellion.

I sense the same from Rush. I always have expected it from Levin, God bless him.

Hannity will keep reminiscing about Orin Hatch.

I haven't been able to find it online - it once was there - but Beck's two co-hosts mocking the letters from children sent to Preznint Barky was priceless, too.

They kept lowering the age of the putative authors until they had one being written while the child was still in the womb.

However, as time progressed, the funny parts disappeared and the crying, the dramatic pauses that went on forever, and the inane "political correctness is like anti-bacterial soap" bits strangled the entertainment value out of his show.

48 Having finally finished the clip (connectivity issues):

To be moderately fair to Olbermann, if you study WWI (meaning you study Western civilization) you will be at least marginally familiar with the Dreyfus Affair. Looking at my copy of "Guns of August", the index shows the event is mentioned in three different pages. I've never read "The Proud Tower", but it surely must go into greater detail. I myself was aware that the affair existed since before high school, though it was probably a long time before I knew anything in depth. I can't remember now where I did so--it might have been an NR or WS article from five-eight years ago.

And now back to my ignorant mouth-breathing Tea Party haze.

I don't listen to conservative talk radio anymore for entertainment. I listen because they give me the true nature of what's happening in my country now. They are the real newscasters.

They also give me, as does this blog, the feeling that I'm not alone in these times of America's deliberate destruction. They feel what I feel.

I, and I know many people like me, find the state of the nation as it is now under the absolutely corrupted government in power not conducive to laughter anymore. I think Rush has even toned down the humor because nothing happening in this country now is humerous. Satire has become reality. Rush has said it himself.

Over the past several weeks, I've sensed even Levin's rage-o-meter pinning. And that's saying something. It seems he's battling to stop spewing obscenities at the left and, although I am intrigued by his new book, I think he too has had it with playing by the rules, especially since it is abundantly clear that the other side seeks our destruction by any and every means at their disposal.

That's a long way off.
Most of the enemies of the State will behave properly with the IRS, Obamacare panels, FEC, EPA, OSHA, DEA, etc. breathing down their necks.

Then there are the enemies who can be handled (or, more often, discouraged into passivity) by whipping up the mob, by threats against livelihood, property, or even life and limb. Who needs the State when you've got a legion of brown shirts (principally the media) to do the job?

Next on the agenda will be hate-speech laws. All of the chic nations have them, y'no.

We're a long, long way from arrest and imprisonment. It probably won't even be necessary.

--------------------------------------------------


Too many GOP progressives (especially the leadership). Another element of government Beck has been warning us about. They will team up with dems in any way poliltically possible to quash the conservative message.

The secret to freedom lies with the states now, especially the red states. Nullification should be a big issue leading up to 2014. If we can't get representation in DC, then start demanding it closer to home.

State sovereignty should be the objective of any candidate one considers for their state legislatures and governors.

87 I don't agree with everything Beck has ever said, but he's on our side at least. If we were playing this like Democrats, we would all support him 110 percent even if he came out for killing and eating the firstborn.
We all really need to start using the Reagan Clause in our political relations; if we agree with more than half of what someone is saying, they are an ally, not an enemy and should be treated as such.
Someone upthread was saying that L's would be more attractive if not for the drug thing. My sense is that we all should drop the priority of our pet issues a notch or two (whatever they are, well except for 2A), we can all agree that we can fight about them after we have averted the Great Burning.

These "credits" schemes make blood run from my eyes. The energy sector is awash in them. The feds mandate that a percentage of your energy production be from X, where X energy production doesn't exist, therefore you are forced to pay a tax, er, I mean, buy credits for X energy production that you cannot meet.

Who pays? Everyone who buys electricity. Fk I hate these people.

I've been talking to numerous parents of sons and daughters in the military and they're saying that their kids are getting out as soon as their enlistment is up. Too much leftist manipulation and social engineering going on. It's making staying in unbearable.

Sure, there are loose planks in the platform (Israel, open borders, and the obligatory clique of "overenthusiastic promoters" as others have mentioned above), but on the whole, it seems more like classical conservatism as I understand it than the "conservatism" being sold in 2008 and 2012 and as promulgated in Congress today.

Most folks don't have a clear idea of what a libertarian actually is, or why we support some of the things we do. (This includes more than a few people who describe themselves as libertarians) Google "Non-Aggression Principle" if you're interested in the most basic aspects.

Reducing our opposition to the war on drugs to "they just want to get high" is really offensive and displays a terrible ignorance of what drives our ideology. Much of what is burning red team butts right now has it's genesis in the drug war. The whole concept of prior restraint is a fundamentally progressive one, and if you scratch the paint off of a drug warrior you'll see the little proggie inside.

136 The Dreyfus Affair, Emile Zola's involvement, the general anti-semitic tenor of French society at the time etc. should be a part of any moderately well-educated person's background knowledge. Having said that, it was Olbermann's reference to it in the wake of the Sherrod episode that showed the true historical illiteracy. Not having heard of Dreyfus is one thing, but having heard of him and then comparing what he went through to the very minor fall-out suffered by Sherrod is utterly lunatic, and a very good exemplar of Olbermann's vein-popping hyperbole.

137 I received a copy of Beck's 'Agenda 21' as a Christmas present. I've
never bought or read any of his books, and was not eager to read it, so
it was left lying around for 6 months or so. When I hit a brief dry
spell in reading material, I picked it up and gave it a go. It proved to
be a sort of post-Republic, post-capitalist story, where all of the
citizens were rounded up in camps to accommodate the 'common good'. The
primary responsibility in the camps was to produce energy. Individuals
had to produce X quantity of energy in order to receive food.

It
was all very similar to such stories. What was most disturbing was the
description of how quickly it came about, and how little resistance
there was. The other disturbing factor was how quickly history was
re-written. One generation does the job.

Not a great book, but a
reminder of how things might be, to a greater or lesser degree. I would
not buy the book, but on the other hand, would encourage others to read
it if a copy falls to hand.

I will say this, every time I hear a radio spot by The Partnership for Sustainable Communities, it gives me the creeps.

But...this is why it is important to be reasonable, to be consistent, and not to make deals just for GOP political power. If that party wishes to be the party of crony capitalism, let it. It is important to be able to say "we said this was a bad idea, and we took out hits for it."

If the historical moment becomes one of a utter collapse of trust, a crisis of confidence due to lack of faith in integrity, it is going to be important to have shown such.

193 It's wiki but it seems correct IIRC.


Dreyfus's time in prison, notably at Devil's Island, had been hard on his health, and he was granted early retirement in October 1907. As a reserve officer, he re-entered the army, as a Major of Artillery, at the outbreak of World War I in 1914. Serving throughout the war, Dreyfus rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. By now middle-aged, Dreyfus served mostly behind the lines of the Western Front, in part as commander of an artillery supply column. However, he also performed front line duties in 1917, notably at Verdun and on the Chemin des Dames. Finally, Dreyfus was promoted to the rank of Officier de la Légion d'honneur in November 1918.[5] Dreyfus's son, Pierre, also served throughout the entire war as an artillery officer, receiving the Croix de Guerre for his services.
Death[edit source | editbeta]
Dreyfus died in Paris aged 75, on 12 July 1935, 29 years to the day after his official exoneration. Two days later, his funeral cortège passed the Place de la Concorde through the ranks of troops assembled for the Bastille Day National Holiday (14 July 1935). He was interred in the Cimetière du Montparnasse, Paris. The inscription on his tombstone is in Hebrew and French. It reads (translated to English):
Here Lies
Lieutenant Colonel Alfred Dreyfus
Officer of the Legion of Honour
9 October 1859 – 12 July 1935

194 I have no problem with little "L" libertarians. That is closest to my nature because it is closest to the feelings of the founders, or at least the Jeffersonian wing.


Thomas Pain: "That government is best which governs least."


Somewhere around 1850 we started losing that. We lost most of it by 1865 and after FDR's reign of terror it was all gone.


But today's big "L" Libertarians are a bunch of dope-heads seeking to legalize dope (of all kinds), eliminate all government in favor of anarchy, and remove the borders.



Now I am opposed to federal drug laws because they are unconstitutional. I would remove all drug laws under certain conditions and caveats.


Total elimination of all the welfare State and strict laws that hold dopers accountable for any harm they do to others while under the influence of drugs.


Also throw in the death penalty for anyone who sells or give drugs to a minor.

But they will not overall be in love with the idea of fighting for cause and country, at least not in the "endure Valley Forge" sense).

Shudder.), Theresa might've actually provided a clever, interesting foil against her dull, golem-like husband.

I don't agree on either case. The big "L" Libertarian Party runs someone for President every election and is usually stockpiled by crackpots. CATO is little "L" libertarian. As for Heritage they are hardly a wing of the Republican party. Have you read their site lately? They attack Republicans now almost as much as the Democrats.

Thank you. Thank God she passed away two years ago and still knew my brother and I. She hadn’t seen my younger brother in years.

I had a feeling she didn’t have much time left I took a day off for no reason and spent it with her even though I had seen her Saturday & Sunday. I took Monday off and she got sick that Friday. I was in bed with her and praying and singing songs to her the night before she passed. At one point she tried to say something and I leaned over to see what she wanted, she kissed me six or seven times and I held her hand and told her she was going to go home to God soon and she smiled. I think she was waiting for the Last Rites. I called the nursing home that day and told them to get a priest. One couldn’t make it that day, he came on Tuesday. She passed right after he gave them to her.

It's just Qapla'. Yes, with superfluous apostrophe (lots of those in Star Trek).

It's contextual, but means "success," either as a congratulation, well-wish (good luck!), or a descriptor.

285 I don't think anyone here worshipped Romney, not the way Obama acolytes make him into the faux messiah.
I think he could have run a much better campaign but I think he was a decent honorable man of faith who loves the country and genuinely cares about people. I can't say the same about Obama. Peggy Noonan has an article in the WSJ today about how team Obama made Romney into an evil Ritchie Rich. She says the Republicans have to fight just as dirty. That makes me sorry that anyone who has to run against Democrats has to be ruthless but I think she's correct

291 Stealin food reminds me of my mother. She had multiple brain surgeries for a huge but non-malignant brain tumor, which left her unable to walk and with some cognition problems. (She couldn't understand the passage of time, for example, so if you left her alone for 5 minutes she would get in a panic because she thought hours had gone by. On the other hand, she would think that it was almost spring when it was late fall.)

Anyway, we got her into the Methodist Home, which was an excellent facility. We could bring her to our homes for birthdays, holidays, and Sunday dinner. They had a beauty shop with free hair-do every week, frequent field trips in a special handicap van to see Christmas light, fall leaves, etc., and special activities all the time, like crafts, sing-alongs, and such. It was very good for her as she had become sort of a recluse living at home.

However, her Depression mentality kicked in, and she would wheel herself to the snack kitchen and steal bananas. Lots of bananas. And hide them in her room. My sister and I used to go visit on weekends and one of the things we always did was throw bananas away. The nurses knew she did it and just let her go, as they knew we would take care of it.

295 I posted a version of The Battle Hymn of the Republic here on Memorial Day weekend. I didn’t know how to burn that to a CD for her. My nephew was here for her wake and funeral. He did it. I wanted that version of the song for her but I didn’t know how.

I used to buy pastry from the local bakery & we’d eat it together.

Posted by: CarolT at August 10, 2013 05:20 PM (z4WKX)

296 That's wonderful you could do that; I probably made her life more pleasant.

There was an old gentleman in the nursing home who used to sit very depressed and quiet but when we sang "The Old Rugged Cross" or "Amazing Grace" he would know the words. They were having a music program one day and the group did, "Let Me Call Your Sweetheart" and one of the people visiting her mom got him to dance. I think he thought he thought it was his deceased wife. Amazing
