Glenn Beck Discusses Border Crisis and His Charity Plan – The Bold and Sanctimonious Tour

Glenn Beck joined Bill O’Reilly last night to talk about his planned border visit and the “angry death threats” he’s gotten from conservatives for doing so. Beck said he understands the anger, but insisted he has a “responsibility to God” to put aside politics and help people in need.

Beck said he’s raised $1.8 million dollars so far, but acknowledges the frustration many have with the broken immigration system. He said there are “some people [that] believe that I’m just gonna make things worse” and even “encouraging people to come here.”

Beck told O’Reilly that yes, he’s getting threats from the far-right, but politics don’t matter here because “it’s evil what’s happening to these children.” O’Reilly agreed with Beck’s cause and said he would donate as well.

Here’s where and why I think Beck is seriously wrong misguided in his approach.

glenn-beck-rally-pic_550x310First off, knock it off with the “right wing threats” talking points.  The transparency of pity is obvious and it only plays into the hands of the liberals who will say “look, even Glenn Beck says the right wingers are hateful people“.   Just stop that.

That nonsense looks like, and is used in exactly the same deflective/divisive way as, Eric Holder proclaiming opposition to him and the President is based on race.  Just stop that nonsense.

However, all of that is small ball issues.   The larger issue is one of misplaced intentions.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see President Obama using the term “faith-based charities” to understand what is being presented.    It’s the same shtick with Democrats and their “drag-in-the-preacher-guy-before-a-legislative-debate” nonsense.

Neither Obama nor Nancy Pelosi give a hoot about religion, faith or charity.   To them these are political constructs housed in the same armory as other shields like “racism”, “the War On Women”, “The One Percent” and “working class”.

They will take down the sword of ridicule, strike with the axe of marginalization, while simultaneously hiding behind the religious shield as they’re en route to the DNC convention where they will thrice deny God in their platform.

pelosi and preistspelosi and pope

So does it really strike as, well, less than sanctimonious, to put a preacher at the bully pulpit while obfuscating your demand for abortion, or removal of God -in any form- from public society.

Yes, the Dem lo-fo’s buy it every time – whatever.   The problem for Beck Inc. is that we ain’t lo-fo’s, and we can actually carry out a journey of logic, to it’s unsurprising conclusion in the land of consequence, prior to departure.

Sometimes ya’ gotta call the baby ugly – because Gerber this is not.

Preliminary review of Dept of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services grants for the past few years show a serious amount of money being sent by the U.S. government, and specifically by President Obama, to “faith based” organizations in/around the border region.

I mean, a lot of money.

I mean, hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars specifically for grants around Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Children, and other Illegal Alien border crossers….

•  Between Dec 2010 and Nov 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

•  Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”

•  Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

  From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”   (link)

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS….

So here’s the issue for Mr. Teddy Bear and Sniffle balls.

When you have THAT MUCH money at stake.  It stops being about the charity of the process and becomes a business function of financial dependence unto itself.

The vested interests of the Catholic “Archdiocese”, or Baptist “ministry” changes from one of charity, to one of facilitation of a process.    You cannot have hundreds of millions floating around without the organization on the receiving end winding up with a vested financial interest in the continuance of the process.

Those examples above are merely the tip of the iceberg.   We’re talking BIG MONEY.

So here’s the issue.

Or list out the “churches” who would be the benefactors of the program you say is so desperately needed, and allow us to review what the DHS and HHS Grant money has been to the entity before you arrived.    Money, I might add, that is taxpayer funded charity from all 50 states without a single taxpayer having a word into whether or not such activity is actually in the best interests of a secure border.

Okay, okay go ahead flog me for inquiring….

      Christian charity is not “Christian” if it is using extorted tax money either. I have real questions that the so called Texas “Baptist” child welfare group is really associated with Baptists. This group started out as a privately funded orphanage in Maryland a hundred years ago that grew into a multi-state “non-profit” that subcontracts social services to states and localities. This is also the group that employs the guards that refer to themselves as “brownshirts” and were threatening contracted health care workers in San Antonio to not talk about lice, scabies, and severe mental illness of the illegals crammed into military buildings. I could set up a business tomorrow called the Methodist Boys and Girls Daycare and it wouldn’t have jack to do with Methodists or even necessarily daycare.

I watched progressive commentator and writer Kristen Powers become agitated and very angry when the rest of the panel did not want to follow HER conscience in taking care of every poor child in the world. Using other people’s money, homes, communities and taking from their children’s welfare to meet her psychological needs. She went to the border and was presented with pre-selected children with horror stories who cried and screamed for her on cue. It never occurred to this clueless, divorced and childless woman that their own parents, relatives and government did this to them and not the US taxpayer. From observing her behavior and thought patterns I think she has a screw loose.

No one ever mentions the thousands of adults that are also crossing the border and the relatives of these “children” are casually referred to, yet no one questions their legal status or just toss aside the almost certain reality that they are illegal too.

        2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

        3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

        4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.

        5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

        6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.

        7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

        8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

        9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

    Conservatives once again disagree with him and he’s again claiming he’s getting death threats.

    So my opinion of Glenn Beck is he has used conservatives to fill his bank account and never was truly a conservative and never truly cared about the country, he cares about Glenn Beck. The best thing conservatives can do is ignore him and shut him off. Don’t read his stuff, don’t listen to him and cancel their subscriptions.

    As for using the Christian duty argument, where was he when these kids were in their own country? Where in the Bible does it say I should take from my neighbor to feed and clothe others?

      The message is: If you don’t adopt a socialist mentality, then you are a selfish, racist,and immoral person It’s nothing more than a “staged emergency” created for the cameras and designed to give Americans a “gut check moment” in which they are forced to judge themselves (and others) in the manner that Obama wants us do.

Which leads me to ask just how strong is his religious faith?
    Not to say, Beck contributed greatly to my knowledge of the organization and people who pull the strings and have the power in this administration.

I agree with Aslan’s Girl that this is for show and in reality 2 million is just a drop in the bucket. It is not going to entice more people to come for a teddy bear or a soccer ball.

    This is anger, that we as citizens feel helpless because our government is out of control. Let’s let GB have his dog and pony show in peace.

        Dog and Pony Show is correct, and this isn’t the first one Beck has conducted. I am truly disappointed in him not only for this latest foray into attempting to be loved by the left, but for his blatant attempt to make certain that the optics are all about him. In many ways we saw George Bush do the same kind of things hoping that liberals would proclaim him a good guy with good intentions. It never worked for him and it will not work for Glenn Beck.

      I’m not opposed to what Glenn is doing per se’. What I am saying is he shouldn’t use conservatives and false flag accusations to advance pity for himself.

      Remember Eric Holder saying folks don’t like me because I’m black a few days ago?…. Or Emanuel Cleaver 2010 and the mysterious invisible “tea party spitting on me” on the steps of the capitol during obamacare?…. Beck, Holder, Cleaver = same/same reason to use.

      Secondly, I think it is highly ambiguous to say “these border churches need money” for the UAC’s, when I can clearly show that those specific entities have rec’d hundreds of millions for this exact purpose….. and how’s that working out for us ? Is it better or worse ?

      [And that is not even to mention the American Red Cross activity that I note in many of the pictures of this “crisis” – – How much is funneling through the Red Cross via taxpayers?]

      Soccer Balls and Teddy Bears ? Really? Really?

      Odd, but I don’t remember those items on any wish list for Samaritans Purse, or other entities who were going directly to the root nations of the crisis.

      Then again, maybe I just missed the hundreds of thousands of Haitian refugee settlement camps set up along the southern border.

    the sympathy aspect supports the Democrats’ push for amnesty…
    ….which will necessarily be followed by citizenship…

    When I first heard Beck about 10-15 years ago on the radio while driving through PA – he was definitley not a conservative – he had many liberal ideas. He was always pro-life, I believe, and that is what defined him as “conservative” but I think he actually was more of a left of center pro-lifer back then. Just my opinion.

    There are a couple of things we need to remember about Glenn Beck:

    1. He’s done a lot of really great things for us, and for the side of the Truth, recently and historically. He’s stuck his neck out time and again to expose the Truth. He’s one of the only “big” media figures to really delve deep into Benghazi and the weapons angle. He exposed a lot of the organization behind Obama, Soros, Acorn, etc.
    2. The guy operates on emotion first and foremost. He’s good with big picture ideas and and stories, and he’s good with following trails and understanding scopes. He’s absolutely terrible at organization, policies, procedures, processess, and details. When it comes to the details, he can’t focus long enough to think it all the way through, and emotion takes over and clouds his logical abilities.

    3. He’s an alcoholic and drug abuser, with a lot of deep psychological issues. He’s overcome a lot of this, and found his religion, but his failures and his temptations I think still haunt him to a very large degree.

    4. He’s a former Catholic who converted to Mormonism. Mormonism was his “any port in a storm, grasping at straws” kind of desperation attempt at salvation. I think he gets hung up on it a lot. It doesn’t seem to fit him and his understanding very well, and I think it causes a lot of internal conflicts that he doesn’t have the ability to reconcile. At the same time, I think the Mormon church saved his life, so he’s not ever going to change or disbelieve, and must believe that any conflicts he has with the church must be internal to him and because of him, so he redoubles his efforts to believe, and tries to force out his doubts. That leads to a very schizoid religiosity from him, and results in bizarre choices like this.

    5. He’s dying. Literally. It is true he’s dying very slowly, but I don’t think he makes it another ten years, and I don’t think he’ll have the capacity to act publicly for another five years. Couple his knowledge of his impending death and running out of time to try to contribute, with #s 2, 3, and 4, and you have the potential for an individual who really wants to do good and right, doesn’t know exactly what that should be, and is desperately trying to make up for past wrongs, and still help those who need help.

    I don’t know how many of you follow him, or pay much attention to him, but it sure seems to me that the sicker he became, the more doctors couldn’t figure out what was going on, and the worse the diagnoses became, the more unhinged and inconsistent he became.

    If he says he’s getting death threats, I have no reason to necessarily doubt that. He’s a polarizing figure, and not everyone on the right is a paragon of virtue and restraint. I’m pretty sure he’s gotten more death threats from the left, and some just because he’s Mormon.

    I would recommend praying for him. Don’t treat him as a traitor, don’t scourge him for his weaknesses and his inconsistencies, and don’t castrate him for his failures. We’ve all got issues, we all have weaknesses, and we all succumb at one time or another and fail ourselves, our countrymen, and our God. We’re human. It is for those reasons that Christ came. The older I get, the more I truly understand that I/we can’t do it ourselves. We can’t save ourselves. We have to rely on Him.

    I’m also not saying trust Glenn. I don’t. He’s really struggling, and I don’t think he’s doing the right thing or making the right choices. I’m not renewing my subscription to him. I’ve changed my AmazonSmile donations from Mercury One to the Wounded Warrior Foundation. I’m not giving him any more money, ’cause I think he’s wrong more often than not these days, and I don’t trust him to be a good steward of the money I’ve given him and could give him.

    That being said, I’ll ally with him on issues where he stands where I do, and work against him and vocally oppose him when we disagree. It has been precious few of the former and a lot more of the latter recently. I’ll recognize the good he’s done, and push back against the bad. I’ll support where I feel right, and oppose where necessary.

    To sum up:
    The gov’t is evil. It is evil to use children as pawns in this political way, and to cause children to die. I will not say anything nice about anyone in power should the Lord ever ask my opinion. I’m grateful that he will not.

    Beck is trying to do the right thing. I think he’s wrong. I think he’s got some fundamental issues with discernment in his life. He’s trying to help the innocent and take care of them while the evil is using them. He’s not understanding the big picture, and he’s being used. Maybe he knows he’s being used, maybe not. Don’t trust Glenn’s judgement on anything. Evaluate it yourself.

      I’d rather have him as a neighbor than anyone currently living or “serving” in D.C.

      I didn’t realize Glenn Beck was sick. If so, this is no reason to be making a big troubador affair over his desire for salvation. It doesn’t mix, and it doesn’t buy one a ticket to heaven while endangering millions of Americans for thousands of questionable refugees while blow horning it to the public what a good man he is. If he wanted to settle business with God, then do it privately. There is no need to attack Conservatives who disagree with him and hence attack the Conservative future in such a public display.

      My opinion, in light of the sell outs beginning, visibly starting with John McCain, then Cochran, and now Glenn Beck, is instead of seeking true ministration from God, they jump like fleas to any new dog to survive. These rinos see how Democrats rule the roost with media and the last straw are new voters flooding the landscape, if they can’t beat them, they join ’em. It truly tests their nettle and beliefs. God separates the wheat from the chafe.

      But you are right, in that GB collected some good karmic points and this may help him. He is cancelling them now.

        I’m not condoning Glenn’s choices or actions. I don’t think it is the right thing to do. I think he’s misguided.

        I also don’t agree with people who become anti-Christian because they or someone they know were buggered by a priest. That is also misguided. However, it is easy to see how one can make a personal, emotional leap from one to the other.

        Not everyone who is on our side is on it for the right reasons, and not everyone claiming to be on our side are necessarily nice, well-intentioned, focused on the Truth, or even sane. I would hazard, however, that more of those that are conservative and/or libertarian are normal, decent folks than is the population of the leftists, Marxists, socialists, anti-colonialists, one-worlders, etc.

        We should never, ever, cover for or condone someone actions because they happened to be allied with us. We root out our own problems, and we handle them. We let the sunshine in everywhere. If there are evildoers in our midst, we need to expose them every bit as much as we need to expose those that aim to do us and our nation harm.

        If Beck’s doing this just for sympathy with the Left, then he’ll answer for it. I’m angry at him for a lot of the stuff he’s done recently. I don’t feel attacked by him. Is he handling events well? Nope, I don’t think he is. Is he helping to solve problems? No, I don’t believe so.

        The enemy of my enemy is not my friend. The one who disagrees with me is not my enemy. I may have friends who disagree with me, and I may have allies who are disagree with me.

        I think it is much, much too early to call Glenn an enemy. Let’s put the sunlight on him. He claims the Truth has no agenda. Fine, let us expose the Truth. We’ll either fix some issues, identify reality, and maybe change some minds, or we’ll discover who he has really been concealing all these years.

        Frankly, I think it is doubtful he’s betrayed us, or is a traitor, etc. He’s human. He’s going to be wrong on issues. He’s going to make mistakes. I will not claim a monopoly on Truth or Justice or Right.

        I’m even willing to acknowledge that I may be incorrect on this. In a few years, looking back, after our country has fallen to a much lower standard than we currently enjoy, will we all view this situation the same? Beats me. I can’t make that claim. We may all be too close to this situation, watching everything come undone before our eyes.

        If you saw an illegal being beaten or raped by the side of the road, would you stop to help? What about an illegal child drowning, would you stop and help? Knowing they were illegal, knowing they had no right to take from others, knowing they had put themselves in this situation with knowledge and forethought, would you still help? Or would you let them suffer their fate and turn away?

        Myself, I’d help. I think that is what Glenn sees himself doing. I think he’s wrong; I don’t think it is that situation. I also don’t think Glenn understands fully what he is doing. I myself will not participate in his actions. I’m also not about to claim that it is an easy call.

          I understand your POV about would you help if you saw someone on the road who needed the help? I just don’t think bringing a camera to the event and a teddy bear is going to help. Some cash is good for a spell. Then what? What about the disease brought to America? Is that something Christians feel is alright? Suicide is not in the Bible. It’s a slap in the face of vitality.

          Christians and the norm is mis-guided for decades when we think that throwing cash at African poor or South American poor is going to magically remove poverty. It never has, and it never will. The problem is lack of responsibility of the governments and a vacuum hovering over poor countries. As a child and teen, I was told drought was the problem in Ethiopia. Etc. Etc. Etc. Throwing money at it only feeds the system that failed in the first place. Do something different, for a change. Don’t keep throwing the same ball, same spin. I don’t have the answers. But I don’t mistaken pity for righteous action.

          By the same token, bottom line, emphasis mine, switching sides just because one side seems to be winning is a cop out.

    Glenn Beck wants to run for presidency one day. His ego has gotten big. He sees these UACs growing up just in time to be a huge influx of # voters. Teddy bears and soccer balls is the age-old public relations ploy because everyone knows these children don’t need teddy bears and soccer balls. They need to be something other than things to be manipulated like turtles. Send a thousand over and if 998 die in the process to save one turtle, it fits their political agenda. What could be better than mass murder of children dying supposedly seeking opportunity. Obama and Democrats look for these kinds of two for one deals. The result is never good.
