It’s About Time!  Beck Gets Called Out

It’s About Time! Beck Gets Called Out

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.

From The Daily Caller:

TheDC Exclusive: Conservatives hit Beck for taking content without attribution

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.

:snip:

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.”

:snip:

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.

Frank Luntz, 4.17.2011: The American People & The Politicians (Full Video)

Hannity hosts an entire hour program with Frank Luntz and one of his famous focus groups.  According to Mr. Luntz, for years, the politicians ‘only faced the tough questions of the media; today the politicians are going to face the tough questions from the American people.”  Frank starts out this focus group speaking about Paul Ryan and asking the audience how they would describe the national debt.  My description would be: the second greatest threat to our national security after Barack Obama’s hidden past.”

Japan Slipping Into The Ocean? (VIDEO)(UPDATED)

A few weeks ago I posted an article (with video) about a scary hypothesis involving Japan collapsing into the ocean. Now, according to the Geospatial Information Authority Of Japan, there appears to be postseismic slippage.

Postseismic Slip Distribution Model

We constructed a postseismic slip (afterslip) distribution model using surface displacement data observed by the GPS Earth Observation Network System (GEONET) for the 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake.

  • Eastward displacements are observed along the Pacific coast from Aomori Prefecture to Chiba Prefecture.

  • The observed postseismic displacement partly includes crustal deformation due to aftershocks.

  • A postseismic slip expands in and around the inferred coseismic slip area . In particular, relative large slips are estimated in the northwest and in the south (off Choshi) of the coseismic slip area.

  • Add this video of the earth moving and bulging in Japan, dutchsinse‘s hypothesis appears to be close to the truth.

    In my wanderings, I ran across statements made about Edgar Cayce predicting that Japan would sink into the ocean. I am still searching for the exact prediction, but wanted to get this information out.

    Either way, the video above and Dutchsinse’s video is more than a little bit disturbing.
