Glenn Beck is Rat Poison

Glenn Beck likes to pretend he is a Libertarian. But he’s not, in fact he is not even close.

As the video here documents, Beck has hitched his wagon to a number of key statist initiatives, including the bankster bailout mega-swindle and the VAT, or value added tax, that would confiscate billions of dollars a year from an already tax besieged American middle class.

Beck also supports the PATRIOT Act, arguably the most un-libertarian single piece of legislation to pass through Congress in the past decade. If Beck supports the PATRIOT Act, it makes perfect sense he supports the police state and the destruction of liberty.

The video here also demonstrates how Beck has “riffed” off Alex Jones. Beck has filched Alex’s material wholesale, a fact so blatantly obvious it cannot be denied. And then Beck has the audacity to turn around and claim he experiences a visceral hatred and disgust for Jones, an animosity so deep he is unable to utter Alex’s name.

Running just shy of 35 minutes, this mini-documentary is a primer exposing the shill and fraudster Glenn Beck, a snake oil salesman who is attempting to not only capitalize on constitutionalists and libertarians, but turn the gullible and na├»ve away from the truth. Glenn Beck is not only rat poison. He is an operative inserted on the fringes of the liberty movement with a singular mission – destroy any real and viable opposition to the establishment.

How Edward Snowden could change the face of journalism

How Edward Snowden could change the face of journalism

 

Published on Jul 3, 2013
The name Edward Snowden has become infamous due to an article released by The Guardian about the National Security Agency's spy program known as Prism. Snowden exposed how the surveillance system monitored Internet communications for millions of Americans and gathered the metadata on all phone calls in the US and now many are questioning the right to a free and open press. Many believe that Glenn Greenwald's story could change way journalists do their jobs. Craig Aaron, president and CEO of Free Press, weighs in.

Spy-crazed US gov't spies on self

Spy-crazed US Gov't Spies On Self

 

 The US government is even spying on itself, through a program called the Insider Threat Program. President Obama instituted it right after Bradley Manning's leaks came out. It is designed to force federal workers of every agency to rat out their coworkers if they think they are acting like they might want to leak something or talk to anyone about their jobs. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses why the US has this spying obsession.

Leon Rosby, 52, says Hawthorne, California police killed his rottweiler Max while he was being arrested. The man was filming the investigation of a robbery scene in Hawthorne Sunday evening, and as he was being handcuffed by police, the dog sprung out the window and lunged at the officers. One responded, firing several shots and killing the dog. The video has gone viral. It's a disturbing scene and some have also wondered if it illuminates other police tactics. Los Angeles community organizer Ron Gochez joins us to explain what happened.

Wordpress.com Censoring News Blogs.

As of June 17, 2013 Wordpress.com removed realnewsworldwide.com from there servers. They sent me an email saying that linking to news stories with a link was considered as a tos violation.  News world wide was a news aggregate site that checked all news posts for accuracy using the web to verify news content by cross referencing news points in the story.  The site was not a spam site now was it affiliated with any other news site or website.   It seems that the wordpress.com has gone to socialist nazi's and is out to censor any content that is presenting factual news.  

  At this time I would recommend that all news sites that are on wordpress.com remove there sites or stop posting on them and move to another service since they are all in violation of the wordpress terms of service. 


 I have spent six years on that site with 3 thousand stories that have been checked for news accuracy and were posted from news sites from all over the world.  The website views were approx 500, thousand to over 2 million depending on the counter being used.  


I think that wordpress.com needs to remove the admin who is censoring news sites on there dot com site.   Nine other blogs were also locked with the deletion of my user acct name.   This is totally unacceptable for anyone who is a blogger.  And especially me who has been blogging for the past 12 years and has reached to and estimated 9 million or more people over the years.   The site was about to be monetized and brought to something that could produce some income for me.  However with this setback I have decided that this option will not be feasible in the near future. 

I will be doing some posting here but it will be extremely limited while I look for other areas of income.  What wordpress has done is censor the free press.  And yes there were many stories there that were posted by me.
