Beckís pandering coverage of Arpiao presentation reminds us why he isnít on television anymore
coachisright.com ^ | MARCH 2, 2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 03/02/2012 11:01:10 AM PST by jmaroneps37

Anyone who actually watched the presentation from Sheriff Joe Arpiao’s all-volunteer Cold Case Posse knows the truth about how much of a fraud Barack Obama is.

If we had an honest media news as important as what Arpiao and his people presented would have demanded that ALL media – TV and radio cover his press conference live from start to finish. Those who watched the presentation also understand that if it had been nationally broadcast and the American people heard and saw the actual evidence, Obama would be gone by May.

Nevertheless, instead of reporting what Arpiao presented the AP and others took the opportunity to attack Arpiao personally. Not surprisingly the now toothless feckless Glenn Beck pandered to the Left and joined the AP. He gave himself away by using their stock lie “Theories that the president’s birth certificate is fake have been widely discredited.”

Mr. Beck isn’t it really the truth that you didn’t have the nerve to simply report what Arpiao presented for fear that the media would label you (gulp) “a birther?” Do you actually think pandering to the Left will keep them from rolling you over the coals any chance they get?

By the way, when DID someone – anyone- rip apart the charges that Obama’s birth certificate is a fake? When DID that happen Mr. Beck? When did anyone make a point by point presentation supporting the authenticity of that obviously fake document?

Who explained away the numerous problems in the document while we weren’t looking? That video must have escaped our view.

Furthermore when did anyone stop laughing at the “silly birthers” long enough to refute the “obviously false assertion” that the Post Office only used four digit year stamps in 1980 when it stamped Obama’s Selective Service card?....

I don’t listen to Beck anymore for many reasons. This is one of them. Not only has Beck jumped the shark but along with Ann they have jumped the moon. The have both lost credibility in my mind.

and to think I was flamed off of Free Republic and Lucianne and American Thinker and all over the place in 2009 when I pointed out in two articles that Beck was not intellectually consistent.

Notice how quiet the after-birthers are?

Where’s the “Bither’s need eat crow” jerk?

Anyone who is not a birther at this point should just have STUPID tattooed on their forehead.

Fence-sitter will be fence-sitting until Obama personally knocks on their front door to tell them he’s fraud. Then they will still mock birthers.

Tell me more. I dunno, the hair raises on the back of my neck with Glenn.

My head tells me that what I’m seeing is probably just untreated bi-polar disorder - that this is what it sounds like, obsesses on - a fixation. Thinking this, I feel sorry for him.

I can’t follow his web of conspiracies, so tightly woven as to be, for me, incoherent often.

The problem with “birthers” is that they want a court to remove the president, and that is a serious problem.

It’s one thing to have a president impeached, but that isn’t going to happen with the gutless GOP and Dingy Harry.

The only other method is for us to vote him out, and that is what it’s going ot come down to.

Having a judge remove a president would open a can of worms that could never be closed.

And yeah, Obama is a fraud, no doubt about it.

I have always been skeptical of the claims of ineligibility, but have been suspicious that something is being hidden in O’s past. I think Arpaio gives these suspicions credibility. Corsi is a 9/11 truther, and Taitz is flaky, but Sheriff Joe is solid, and I wish him luck in the search for the truth, whatever it is. Beck didn’t mention that Arpaio’s report also discusses the draft card, and a “person of Interest” involved in the alleged forgery. That is something beyond what has been mentioned before.

Arpaio’s presentation was devastating and should be enough to get obama kicked out of office - or at least keep him from running a second term. The problem is - where do we go from here if neither the liberal or conservative media will take it up?

I missed where Wright was “bashing birthers”.

The birther business is not the definition of “intellectual dishonesty”, which encompasses a broad swath of processing thoughts on the way to a conclusion.

Beck’s a joke, three hours of him and his bozo’s in their mocking voices is quite dull.

Can you imagine what would have happened in 1972 if there was credible evidence that the president had forged and fraudulent documents? This is the most amazing thing, the power of being labelled a racist has reduced the conservative media and congress to jelly.

The one thing Arpaio did not discuss was the SSN. I hope that is still an active part of the posse’s investigation. When you put all of this together you have a complete fraud who has made it to the whitehouse.

The Beck radio show can get me frustrated when he promises that he has a very important revelation to make. Then, he futzes around, making jokes and small talk for an hour. After stringing you along, he finally makes his revelation, which is something you can find on the Blaze. Beck never gets to the point.

We will be found going nowhere as these discoveries apply to Obama, however, going forward we have seen states taking up legislative protections from such a vague past being successful in the future.

Impeachment at this point would take longer to accomplish and spend more clock time than just fighting it out in the general election campaign, and in Kitchen Sink style. :)

Actually, the real problem with being a ‘birther’ is that we want the Constitution to be upheld across all three branches of government.

But yes, Beck and his asinine views on 0bama’s eligibility really frost me. REALLY.

I also don’t appreciate his Newt bashing when he doesn’t apply that anti-Progressive view to other candidates, e.g., Romney.

Ironically in this particular thread, by taking a little swipe at Beck, I was SUPPORTING the birther side of the debate.

But actually, this thread was about BECK and it simply used the Arpaio issue as a jumping off point. I was on topic, which was Beck.

Some folks are single issue folks and they simply cannot see around that one single obsession they have.

Where do you come up with this?

They want to remove Obama’s name from a presidential ballot that he is ineligible to be on, NOT remove him from office which would require impeachment.

It’s just very frustrating knowing that the “president” has perpetrated a fraud on the people of the United States of America and there will be no consequences. We’re the crazy ones because we don’t believe the piece of crap obama smuggly waved in front of the cameras is real. I guess the best recourse is to continue to pray for divine intervention and that the evil he is spreading around to come back around his way — in spades.

Well, I definitely agree with birthers that Obama is a fraud, I mean, it’s just as obvious as it can be, but I do not want any court to remove him, because that means any other president can also beremoved by a court, and that would be a disaster.

I really enjoy listening to Beck, even when he’s being an ass along with his cohorts, however, I do not agree with the way he mocks people who question Obama’s credentials. It’s fine that he doesn’t support that line of attack, but he should be respectful IMO.

I also have to add that I listen to him every day, and I know that he doesn’t support Romney, and I also know that he thinks Newt is a progressive. He’s always been in the Bachmann/ Santorum camps as far as I can tell. I can recall hearing a show last week sometime in which he was seriously doubting the candidacy of Romney based upon something that I cannot quite remember at this time.

Because this seems to be the goal of Orly Taitz and it seemed to become the goal of Philip Berg after he was told that he had to wait until Obama actually became president before he had any standing, but then of course he was told he still had no standing.

I’m definitely OK with removing him from the ballot, and I’m also OK with impeachment, but that doesn’t seem possible at this time or any other time sadly.

Alot longer for me!

Well lets be honest...Beck could not go on and on about what a great guy Andrew Breitbart was or what good friends they were because he was the only one who tried to lie about him and question his motives in the Sharon Sherrod video! So, instead he spent the day cutting down Arpaio for trying to actually listen to his constituents and investigate something that has festered for 3+ years. Beck always came across to me as a I am the only one that knows anything about the left or the evil in our country. Kinda cult-like and creepy. We all need to band together and bring down this administration any and all ways we can....including the so-called birther issue. Believe it or not...I can do that and vote at the same time....ya know....its called multi-tasking. Duh.....

There are two arguments here. One on Beck and the other on Sheriff Joe. Say what you will about Beck but when Sheriff Joe makes a statement about Obama’s BC, I have to take another look at the case.

Well, since letting a usurper(most likely an illegal alien) assume the office of the presidency is GROUND ZERO and everything he’s done for the past three plus years stems from that horrible fact, I’d say I picked the correct issue to obsess over.

Beck is a libertarian and in that ideology there is plenty of room for excess and error (stupidity) which can lead to empowering the left even more.

At the same time, he has done so much good to expose the Left and Obammy, I won’t turn on him over his ocassional emotional breakdowns (the Tea Party is racist meltdown, for example).

If you don’t “follow” him, there is no reason to abandon his valuable reporting while you leave his nuttiness by the wayside.

First of all, it is frankly stupid to say that his birth place is ground zero for all that he has done. That sounds pithy and all hight and mighty, but it's bullsh-t. A socialist is a socialist regardless of where he was born. That's just not logical by any stretch. Second of all, the case is apparently not a slam dunk. I believe it. You believe it, but it has not gained traction. It just hasn't.

Third of all, it is narrow minded to think that everybody should have the exact same hot button issue. That would be a boring and non productive world indeed. And related to that, it is sheer stupidity to for those who are obsessed over this issue to call everyone who does NOT obsess over it a hater of the Constitution.

Just like the ones who STILL think FOX is conservative, Beck appealed to them as a breath of fresh air. At the start, he was usually good, but rapidly (to me) turned stale far too many times. Soon, it was evident to those who chose to see, that it was all about Beck and Beck merchandise-all the time.

Here Beck is speaking to local Denver host about Obama’s eligibility back in 2010. He acted really weird in this interview Shortly after this interview, Beck when on to bash Peter Boyles on his own program. Wouldn’t even use Peter Boyles’ name. I didn’t care for Beck to begin with, but really had no use for him after this:

I watched the clip of Joe's press conference. It just didn't seem to be the same Joe. He sounded so reserved and a little bit frightened to me. I think some has gotten to him to be truthful. At the end of his speech he said he is not accusing Obama of fraud but “where do we go from here?” and I don't think he believes it will go anywhere.

Somehow we have to get Beck and Coulter back on our side.

Internecine conflict is expected in our culture. It is said that in our major wars that we often fight each other in initial phases more than we fight the enemy. For example, history shows that in the 1st 2 years of America’s involvement in WWII our leaders fought each other politically more than they focused on fighting the enemy in combat.

So Beck is fighting us now, but that will end as he realizes it’s the wrong approach. He was right about Newt though, and I now support Newt. His attacks on Newt made people hold Newt’s feet to the fire and now I believe Newt is aware that he best not think of wandering away from conservatism. I think Newt was made a better candidate because of Beck’s opposition to him just as I think Beck will be a better commentator once we hold him accountable for his willful ignorance.

Good points but what intrigues me is that the Sheriff must have a crack team of investigators working for him because last year about a year ago before Holder was trying to get him on trumped up civil rights abuses, the Sheriff remarked in the press that no matter what forgery or coverup was suspected, that there would be no way for the vital records microfilm roll to be altered as that would contain all of the peripheral sequential birth registrations and long forms on one film. If Obama’s BC did not show up there or in fact did show there, then everything else could be seen clearly against this film roll; it would be prime evidence to settle the question.

When I saw him make the statement regarding the vital record microfilm roll I knew we had someone with a team that was serious.

So in short I think Sheriff Arpaio should not be ignored because he has law enforcement powers that no other participant in the BC saga have.

I am not the problem. I am not standing in your way. Perhaps the problem can be found by looking in the mirror. Or perhaps the problem is that there is no way to totally prove your case. That happens sometimes. Or perhaps the problem is that most folks are more concerned with WHAT HE BELIEVES than WHERE HE WAS BORN. There are any number of reasons why your issue has not caught on, but those of us who are sympathetic but prefer to focus on other issues are NOT YOUR PROBLEM. I submit YOU are your own worst enemy with absolutely stupid statements like the one you just made.

I definitely understand the sentiment, but I think having the punk removed by a court or judge would be the worst thing, because if successful, the left would then seek the removal of every single GOP president thereafter on any trumped up reason they could imagine.

It's a serious threat in more ways than many would imagine. Take command authority as one example. All legal authority for military orders flows from the commander-in-chief.

An illegal commander -in-chief puts the military at direct odds with their sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

...such as ordering the upcoming ‘punishment’ for 5 American soldiers who were simply assigned a duty that included burning trash. Authority that may, in fact, permit these same soldiers to be turned over to and tried in Afghan Islamic courts, under rules/laws that can impose death sentences, as burning a Koran does in Iran.

But hey, let’s not worry about whether the CIC is actually legal in and of himself in the position with which he is currently authorized to hold. Nah. Who cares?

Don’t you wonder why he used non-LEO volunteers instead of his own paid professional LEO investigators? It is hard to imagine, for example, that anything his “posse” produces could be legally presented to a grand jury. The fact is he deliberately choose NOT to use his real law enforcement powers.

I find it odd if he was actually serious about solving a real crime.
