Glenn Beck predicted Petraeus dismissal 2 weeks ago
http://www.glennbeck.com ^

Posted on 11/14/2012 8:39:47 PM PST by Lucky9teen

General David Petraeus resigned amid scandal last week after admitting he had cheated on his wife of 38 years with a woman 20 years his younger. Interesting timing, considering Petraeus was set to testify in the Benghazi investigation and will most likely no longer take part. Why now? And why was the man once hated by the left (‘betray-us’) there in the first place?

“This all makes sense if you ‑‑ if you think like a revolutionary. Go back to where General Petraeus was when Barack Obama got into office. Do you remember? There were rumors that he was going to run,” Glenn said. “We were all looking for a hero to ride in a white horse and this guy had credibility. Everybody, everybody liked General Petraeus. And remember what the left was saying. This is why this was so important. If you remember what the left was saying at the time, the left was saying that General Petraeus was General Betray Us. He was moveon.org’s chief target. The left hated General Petraeus. Why? Because he was good at what he did. He was effective.”

“So Obama comes in and he puts him and sends him back to Afghanistan. And I remember doing the show at the time saying, ‘Don’t do it, General Petraeus, don’t do it.’ But the guy stood up and he did the right thing. And I was saying, ‘Don’t do it because they’re trying to take you out. They’re trying to put you in a situation to where you’re removed from the line of sight here in America. And they’ll destroy you in the end.’”

“So he goes over and that’s when he starts to have an affair with this Broadwell woman.”

“Then the president of the United States takes Leon Panetta who hates the Pentagon and instead of putting General Petraeus in charge of the Pentagon, he moves the guy who has always been for defunding the military and doesn’t have military background, he puts the guy who was at the CIA in charge of the Pentagon and takes the logical choice of the Pentagon (Petraeus) and puts him in the CIA.”

“Now why would you do that? Why would you do that? That doesn’t make any sense,” Glenn continued.

It’s been reported that James Clapper and the FBI knew of the affair before Petraeus was put in charge of the CIA.

“So the administration knew that the guy they were going to put in charge of the CIA was having an affair. That doesn’t sound smart to me. That doesn’t sound ‑‑ that doesn’t sound wise in any stretch of the imagination. But they did it. And they put him in charge of the CIA.”

“Now, when Leon Panetta was at the CIA, you never heard about these intelligence problems: ‘Well, it was a lack of intelligence. Well, it was bad intelligence.’ You never heard that. Because if you did hear that, wouldn’t that be interesting. That you would take somebody who was having all of these problems with the intelligence, ‘Well, there’s a problem with the intelligence, there’s a problem with this, there’s a problem with that,’ and then move him over to run the Pentagon. That would be irresponsible, wouldn’t it?

“So our problems with intelligence all start to pop up you when General Petraeus, the guy America trusts, the guy they know is having an affair, all of a sudden there’s these bad intelligence problems. Hmmm.”

“And then we get to the Benghazi situation where everybody was saying intelligence, intelligence, intelligence. And I’m up in my office after the show two weeks ago and I say to myself, ‘Something’s wrong. Something’s wrong.’ I come down to the studio, two weeks ago, and I say this: Watch for Petraeus to take the blame. As I’ve been thinking about this and I’ve been thinking where’s Petraeus? Petraeus is the guy who’s been set up as the ‑‑ he’s the intelligence guy now. He’s the head of the CIA. Everybody trusts Petraeus. Remember when they moved him over there and they were like, why is he doing that? They’re getting him out of the way. Put this all together. Who have they tried to sell down the river every step of the way, the intelligence? Sloppy intelligence, didn’t know, didn’t know, didn’t know, everything. You watch: Petraeus is going to be the fall guy. They’re going to have him step down. They’re going to point all fingers to him. You watch. He goes to Princeton. I think he goes to Princeton.”

“Two weeks ago they were talking about Petraeus was considering leaving, stepping down and going to Princeton and running Princeton. And I thought to myself, Wait a minute. General Petraeus, General Betrayus, that guy, going to run the university where Van Jones is a professor. Where Peter Singer is a professor. Isn’t Cornel West also a professor at Princeton? Is it Princeton?”

“The dumping ground for the Center for American Progress, Van Jones’ university he’s going to go run? I’m sorry, the university that has the Woodrow Wilson Center for Politics? Really? You’re going to go run that? They’re going to embrace him? He’s going to run that? Wow, is that a wild ‑‑ that’s a wild turn of events, isn’t it? How’d that one come about? Who wanted to get him? Who’s been campaigning for him to have that? How’d that one happen? That one happened, I’m convinced, because somebody said, ‘General, General, General, look at ‑‑ you can leave right now and keep your career,’ knowing that a man like that will say, ‘At least I can shape young minds. I may have made mistakes or I may have done this or whatever, whatever they got on me, I can leave and I can leave with some honor and dignity and I can go shape minds.’ And he’ll say in himself, ‘It’s better than having no credibility. At least I can go and I can make an impact’ because somebody like General Petraeus would know one of the problems with our country is… education.”

” So one of our problems is education. “I can go in and do it.” Now maybe General Petraeus is like Colin Powell. I don’t know. Maybe he’s a big progressive. I have no idea. But I will tell you this: We ‑‑ this was a CIA safe house. We were at least running guns. I’m beginning to think it’s much, much, much worse. But we’re at least running guns in that safe house.”

“General Petraeus knows it, knows everything about it. He’s got all the information. The week before he testifies, this comes out? The president knew; they held it. They held it. This is what the mob does, gang. You’ve got to look at our president and this administration as Al Capone because that’s what you’ve got. This is what they do. They hold the information, ‘General, you’re not going to say anything.’ I don’t think this general can sleep at night. And here’s why he probably won’t say anything: Because he has two children.”

Glenn said that the other piece of information that has been released is a reference to sex under a desk.

“That’s a warning shot,” Glenn said. Glenn believes that the White House has more information that could be even more embarrassing for his family and that they will release it if he doesn’t keep quiet about Libya.

“I don’t think he’s going to say anything. If he is the man we thought he was, he will. And his children will suffer for it.”

“This is why I’ve said to you have got to have your closets clean. They will destroy you. If there’s anything you’re doing, they will use it against you and they will destroy you. Period. Have your closets clean. Otherwise your family will be on the frontline and your family will be destroyed as well. As his family will. He has to make the choice. I believe he’s going to Princeton. Congratulations on another lucky Obama winner.”

Later in the show, Glenn explained that this incident also serves to discredit the military, something that Glenn believes is necessary to destabilize a country.

“So if you’re trying to take over the United States and have a revolution, how do ‑‑ what do you need? You have to have the media. Well, you got that one. Have to have the education system. You got that one. Have to have the government, have to have leaders in top of the government. You got that. And you have to have the military,” Glenn explained.

“Let me tell you something: What’s happening right now, Petraeus’ story is not over. Petraeus is going to lose more and more credibility.”

“The media loves a good sex story – unless it’s about a liberal and then it’s their private business. But if it’s about a conservative and if it’s about a military hero, they love a good sex story. So the media will run with this until there is just no more running with it. And they will destroy,” he said. “Right now you think of General Petraeus with all of those ribbons on. Soon all you will think of him is a guy who was doing something nasty underneath his desk. And no one will listen to him.”

“General Petraeus, you have one option: You go nuclear right now, my friend. That is your only option: Mutually assured destruction. And they don’t mind it. They don’t mind it. They will push every damn button.”

“Somebody better stand up.”

Yeah, Glenn - as long as that somebody isn't you.

But you do a nice song and dance, I'll give you that.

What a farce.

Glenn couldn’t do any more than he already does.. As for a hero to step forward, perhaps that former Secret Service agent who ‘committed suicide in his car by carbon monoxide poisoning’ 5 days before the election was a would-be hero cut down by the regime. Maybe Hillary left town out of FEAR, not just because she’s complicit. Remember Ron Brown!!

Would Petraeus have been a candidate to make all conservatives swoon? It’s strange to me that the left and certain pundits are dancing around like they took down our greatest potential presidential candidate, or the conservative movement’s leader.

Glenn Beck, for the past 4 years, has been knocking himself out trying to educate the sheeple of this nation who 0bama is, his connections to very dangerous people and has made predictions,that have come to pass and you think he hasn’t stuck his neck out? I think he lives in peril every day. He gets emotional to be sure, but you cannot doubt he loves this nation and he has values and is a good man. If folks out there would have listened to him instead of poopooing him things could well be different. Now America is going to have to learn the hard way. Dark days are upon us.

I couldn't agree more with this response. Glenn is and has been a giant hero for the past 4 years. How can you not believe in him? Do you not remember his Fox program....how he laid out every detail, and explained and warned till he was blue in the face. He was ready to go out on a limb, and believe me, he knew he HAD to be sure of what he was saying, as he knew he was leaving himself wide open for lawsuits if he could be proven wrong. When was the last time you heard of him being hauled in to court on any thing he has exposed over these last years?And it's been as if he could tell what was going to happen. Have you not noticed that everything he warned and predicted, yet hoped would not come to pass, has indeed happened??Again I say WAKE UP AMERICA. May God help us. These next 4 years, I fear, will be hell.

“General Petraeus, you have one option: You go nuclear right now, my friend. That is your only option: Mutually assured destruction. And they don’t mind it. They don’t mind it. They will push every damn button.”

I am praying that the General “will” do what is right and tell “everything” he knows about the administration efforts and that will NOT put “American Patriots” in danger.

It’s been reported that James Clapper and the FBI knew of the affair before Petraeus was put in charge of the CIA.

Not true apparently. The time lines I've seen state that the affair ran from last November (after Petreaus had assumed the CIA job) until July of this year, and I've also read that Clapper apparently wasn't aware of the FBI Investigation until Election day.

Well there was a time that Petraeus had credibility in this nation. The left went after him with their ad 'betray us' under Bush. I think we see a progression of the methods of operation used to make him theirs until they could ruin him and his credibility. IF the president is pushing perverts in the military, only Congress has the authority to keep and maintain military rules over the Defense Department.

My former hero Rummy, and Cheney, even Rush have wilted into the acceptance of perverts becoming the norm.

No I did not read Paula's emails to Jill. Early on when this story broke more than a few freepers were adamant that the salacious parts of this story should be ignored as 'red herrings'. I decided 'fine' I won't bias my thinking by reading the 'sex' themes of this unfolding drama.

I am a bit curious how exactly it was that Paula would know what she did know about Jill. Was she spying on people via her computer?

Rush use to actively describe perverts in all their ways. That is until it became public that Greg Louganis was a pervert and was HIV positive. Rush then to further expound upon his progression made a big deal about his last marriage being performed around an Elton Jon performance. I stopped paying attention to Rush after bloody Thursday in the Florida primaries. 'You know' when the real Romney showed his primary colors.

Yes, it’s code. “WHO cuts CAT HAIR???” is code for grooming hair not upon her head. Sex professionals have grooming this area down to an art form.

Not that I would know anything about that. I heard about it from a friend.

In what way do you think Beck is swaying the “sheeple”?

Since when is reporting on the facts and connecting the dots of corruption in our government, media and society, is “swaying” the people? The truth has no agenda....and no matter who tries to bash Beck, he’s out there doing what he can, with his own money, to make a difference and change things for the BETTER.

He’s a patriot. And I thank God we have someone like him, willing to speak out boldly and plainly, no matter the risk(s). We need MORE like him. IMO

Yes, he did. And humans tend to do, he gets things wrong sometimes. But, he did come out and vehemently apologized for being so off the mark on that.

I don’t think anyone that predicted Romney would win, accounted for ALL the voter fraud and the power of the Democrats to pull that off, though.

Ok. I get you like him.
There are far to many people who hang on every word he says as though he is a seer IE sheeple
Most of what he reports as new and exciting is already known, he may present it differently, he is not the be all to end all.
He is not using his own money as you say, he sells books, TV shows advertising.....the way you said that you would think he doesn’t ask for anything and pays for all his TV, internet time from his own pocket.
He is a successful man because he knows how to market
himself, that’s not bad, it’s just the way it is.

Say what you will, Glenn is the epitome of Capitalism. And yes, he pulls in a lot of money. But he uses A LOT of that money to help others.

His new tv network (The Blaze TV) is debt free. He started that with his own money, and YES, MOST of what he does now, he DOES pull from his OWN pocket.

If you have ever watched his show or his network, you would see him and his staff, are trying to expand from just media, so they can help get rid of the ENEMYdia and their completely bias untrue non-reporting. He’s trying to show people that EACH OF US can make a difference. In fact, his new clothing line of 1791, ALL PROCEEDS go to charity. But he’s trying to give entrepreneurs and inventors a place to start rebuilding America again.

And I realize he is not 100% correct and he certainly is not the end all to knowing everything. But I have certainly seen him come up with stuff WAY BEFORE others have. He isn’t afraid, at least, to speak out, and speak out often, when others won’t. Granted, there are many things I wish he would say and sometimes I don’t always agree with his take on things, but I have yet to hear anyone (save Rush sometimes) lay it out as well and as simply, as Beck has. He has a talent for telling a story in a way that is easy to understand and make more sense of.

Yes I like him, and I get a little tired of those who dislike him, calling him a shill, or making it out that he’s just pandering or trying to sway people or worse, that he’s a bad guy. I guess I don’t see where what he’s doing is bad....in any way. I only see it as being helpful and doing good works.

You don’t watch the news and we’re going to give you things that you can do about it. This is not going to be some place to where you just don’t have context and you don’t have perspective and you don’t have anything to do about it. That’s the difference.”

“What’s changing the world is the Tea Party. What’s changing the world is the 9/12 project. What’s changing the world are people online right now that are connecting with each other, Facebook, Twitter. That’s what’s changing the world. And we’re not going to be somebody in an ivory tower that is pontificating. We are going to do our best to link with as many people as we can that think like us, that understand the world is being redesigned. And we’re going to redesign it with you, not with some giant global corporation that doesn’t give a flying crap about you or the country. We have certain beliefs and standards, and our standards are, our beliefs are that America is good. It is a force for good. Our belief is in truth, not a party. But a principle.”

I see you have joined Talisker in demonstrating your wisdom.

Or, I should have said, “your lack of” it.

If you don’t like Glen Beck why do you come to an article with his name in the title?

Don’t answer that! I know the answer. You just want to get a dig in to those who respect GB. As he says, “Trust, but verify” and that means do your own research and then you can present proof that what he says is wrong. You will be too late with that too. GB always makes on the air corrections as soon as he can if he has something wrong.
