Megyn Kelly interviewed Dr. Ron Paul today about the fact that the media is ignoring his campaign and his whisker thin loss to Michele Bachmann in the Iowa Straw Poll on Saturday. Dr. Paul believes it is because he is challenging the status quo of Washington, D.C. with a completely different view of foreign policy, monetary policy, economic policy, and the hundred year march into empire building and currency debasement. One has to give Megyn Kelly credit for having Ron Paul on her show and asking about the tried and true media mantra, ‘you can’t win’. (more…)
Though there have been many instances where I have seen my research all over the Beck program, I cannot definitively prove that it was lifted from my website. What I do know is that it came from somewhere other than Beck’s researchers because it has always been days to weeks after being initially written about by alternative media journalists and bloggers (Bretton Woods II); myself included. I am currently searching for what appears to be a dig against the Monster at the end of a recent Beck program where he states, “something wicked this way comes”. Look and sound familiar? I will post the clip when I find it.
In the meantime, I have always kept the frame of mind that if the information was finally getting out to the corporate owned moos, then it’s all good…until now. Check out the last quoted paragraph where Beck takes credit for a slogan that he is now making cash on that someone else came up with and made the effort to secure the website url for.
A number of conservative activists and bloggers say they’re furious at media magnate Glenn Beck for what they call content theft. Over the past several years, Beck has relied on video, audio and written content from others to fill his radio and television shows, as well as his websites. Often he has credited his fellow conservatives for their work. Yet in many other instances say dozens of conservative journalists who spoke to The Daily Caller, he has not, often taking elaborate steps to cloak the origins of the material.
By any standard, Beck seems unusually reliant on the work of others, and unusually reluctant to credit it. In an interview with TheDC, Roger L. Simon, CEO of Pajamas Media, suggested that Beck has committed the journalistic equivalent of a notorious crime. “It is not a question of just doing it right the majority of the time. It is a question of doing it right always,” Simon said. “Doris Kearns Goodwin is forever a fraud in my estimation because she has been caught plagiarizing once. If you rob a bank once, you still robbed a bank.”
A remarkably large number of conservative writers say they feel robbed. During the March 18 airing of his television program, for example, Beck ran a portion of video created by a Chicago-based blogger who calls himself Rebel Pundit. The blogger, who does not publicly reveal his name, says he was initially pleased to see Beck running his video, which featured left-wing protesters demanding amnesty for illegal immigrants. He was soon shocked, however, to see that Beck’s staff had obscured the watermark logo of his website, RebelPundit.com, from the tape.
“I put my website name on there for a reason – to bring people from the movement to my website so they can see the other stuff that I’ve done,” the man behind Rebel Pundit told TheDC. “You’ve got pretty much the biggest guy in the movement take your stuff and actually have his editors spend the time to scrub my name off of it.”
Mandy Nagy, a conservative blogger known online as Liberty Chick, spent untold hours last fall creating a chart that tracks left-wing billionaire George Soros’s influence over media organizations, only to see it appear, in its exact form and without any attribution, on Beck’s famous chalkboard. “We were laughing that he went to all the trouble of [recreating] the visual on the blackboard,” Nagy said, not sounding entirely amused.
John Sexton, who blogs at VerumSerum.com, has provided Beck with material several times, and has sometimes received credit for it. But in several other cases, Sexton says, “he’s used our stuff without any hat tip at all. I don’t understand that.” According to Sexton, in one instance even famously liberal CBS News credited VerumSerum.com for content it used, while Beck, who lifted the same material, did not.
Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com recalls watching Beck use a story she wrote about campaign contributions the Obama campaign received from donors in Gaza. Many other publications referred to the story, Geller says, but only Beck refused to give her credit for it.
“I went through thousands of pages of FEC documents and it was an enormous task to uncover the campaign contributions from Gaza, a Hamas-controlled area, to President Obama,” Geller says. “It’s in my book and it wasn’t a secret that I wrote the story. I don’t know how to describe such outrageous and proud thievery. I like his work, but he’s a thief.”
In February of this year, Beck announced on the radio that he had created a new motto for his website, The Blaze. “This is the slogan that I wrote for The Blaze,” Beck said. “We’ve put it up everywhere here and we’ve written it out for The Blaze. And it is: ‘The truth has no agenda.’”
But in fact, this was not the truth. Beck did not write any such slogan for The Blaze. According to GoDaddy.com website domain name registration records, a man named Michael Opelka bought the domain “truthhasnoagenda.com” in July 2009. Beck has since hired Opelka to work for The Blaze. Shortly thereafter, Beck began selling “The Truth Has No Agenda” merchandise.
This may be the globalists’ agenda to discredit Beck, but I am hoping that this story will drive the moos to those very same alternative media websites that came up with the original research and just cut out the middleman.
AND, if you see this video that was originally uploaded to YouTube in August, 2010; yep, it’s mine.
As many Monster readers know, Glenn Beck appears to use (uncredited) research from bloggers (ahem…), but mainly from Alex Jones’ Infowars and PrisonPlanet.TV. Beck has been blaming the very far left (Van Jones, etc.) and George Soros for the globalist agenda when readers here know that there is yet another ‘unknown’ level of shadow players behind the ass-clowns that are part of the Bohemian Grove and Bilderbergers. My money has always been on whoever actually owns and runs the Bank of International Settlements in Basil, Switzerland, (like we will ever know, but I digress).
Alex Jones has been contacted by a major magazine that is doing a piece on Glenn Beck to document the research that has been obtained from Infowars.com and then spun. Alex goes into a bit about what has already been documented and then lets Glenn have it for being a total establishment actor who is continuing to reinforce the left/right paradigm instead of speaking the truth about the actual chess-players that are turning the world’s population in serfs.
We have a global government run by private banking cartels that’s taken over our nation, and Glenn, we cannot allow you to blame it all on a mid-level nobody like Van Jones and tell us he is the top of the pyramid. Glenn, I’ll really start to believe in you when you do a show on Rupert Murdoch admittedly being one of the key people behind the move for global carbon taxes to fund this new private world government. And I want to tell the globalists something; you think Glenn Beck has co-opted my message and my information? No. This door swings both ways, this is a two way street, a double-edged sword. We are only getting more viewers and more listeners because of Glenn Beck. People are using him as a doorway and then they are finding the real bona fide information.
This is one of those important shows that Glenn does packed with inflation information, numbers, and great visuals, about the devaluation of the dollar and the economic collapse that is coming due to the debt and deficit. One of the best pieces of advice that Glenn has for people living in large cities is what we have been saying for 18 months now; if you live in a city, have an escape plan for getting out into the country once the general populace starts rioting. You will not want to be caged like rats. Glenn closes out this program with the ‘Day of Rage’ (Part 3, 9:15) that has been called for in America on March 12th by the Day Of Rage(America), who apparently does not yet have very many followers on Facebook. Whether these ‘useful idiots’ (or tools of the globalists as I like to call them) start their shenanigans on March 12th or later, be prepared, because their stupidity is coming.
Today’s show is particularly important as Glenn exposes the criminal negligence of the MSM in regards to the revolution in Egypt. He is asking the right questions and connecting the dots when it comes to Islamic Socialism, Egypt, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, American progressives and how these traitors to the American Constitution are using ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ concept without realizing that when it comes to rebuilding the Ottoman Empire, the progressives are going to be as dead as the rest of us when they finally realize that the Islamic Jihadists aren’t playing. There is some footage of al-Qaradawi that will blow your mind.
“The right of the collective supersedes the right of the individual.”
“…because a nation that does not excel at the industry of death does not deserve life.” (Part 2, 13:09 mark)
Glenn starts this show dressed in robe and with staff; covering the supposed ‘spontaneous‘ protests in Egypt, and the sanitization of the news coming out of Egypt. He goes into the possibility of a caliphate forming in the Middle East, Sharia Law, honor killings here in America, and how the American left and islamic socialists have joined forces. He also shows video of how the training of revolutionaries has been going on for some time and that this revolution is far from spontaneous. Glenn also plays video of the violent rhetoric of the left which still does not understand that when push comes to shove, they are outnumbered by people that will not blink. ‘Nuff said.
Code Pink is in Egypt standing shoulder to shoulder with the anti-Mubarek protestors; statement of fact.
Code Pink in Egypt, 2.2.2011:
More Code Pink in Egypt 2.3.2011:
Glenn starts this show with footage and commentary on the writer from the Daily Beast who slammed him on Fox and Friends this morning for having lunatic conspiracy theories about Code Pink, the Muslim Brotherhood, ‘islamic socialism‘ and the concept of an emerging caliphate. This was a very good show as Glenn has done his homework, has the evidence, the video, and screenshots of some pretty interesting tidbits of information.
Glenn speaks the questions over his numerous chalkboards including who actually is behind the riots in Egypt. He expands on this facts on 2.3.2011. He also covers the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Bill Ayers, Bernandine Dorhn, Code Pink, sharia law, and the caliphate (Glenn’s theory) that is being formed.
Glenn covers the Jay Nixon/Casey Brezik assassination attempt in more depth today as this particular story was completely buried and went unreported, last September. He also speaks to the special show on Friday about Edward Bernays (the father of propaganda which terminology later was changed to public relations after the Nazis used his formula successfully against just about everybody.) Glenn is approaching the following quote from the point of the global elites, but Obama’s latest executive order also could apply. The quote from Bernays in “The Invisible Hand”:
It might be better to have, instead of propaganda and special pleading, committees of wise men who would choose our rulers, dictate our conduct, private and public, and decide upon the best types of clothes for us to wear and the best kinds of food for us to eat.
