Glenn Beck: 'I've lost faith,' time to 'surrender'
WND ^ | March 6, 2013 | Joe Kovacs

Says dying America is 'gurgling, we've got our hand on the wound'


Glenn Beck acts out a scene of rescuing a dying America during his broadcast Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

Claiming that “America is hemorrhaging” and headed rapidly toward death, media giant Glenn Beck says he’s lost faith in many of the institutions that have made the U.S. such a great country, and it’s time to “surrender.”

“When the government says they can use drones and just kill us without a warrant or a trial, my gosh, America certainly is dead,” Beck said during his broadcast Tuesday night.

“I’ve lost faith in my government, I’ve lost faith in the media, in banking, the justice system, some of our big-city police departments … I think I just didn’t have faith in the DMV 15 years ago. Now I question everything. I don’t have faith in any of it.”

Can’t get enough Glenn Beck? WND has a complete section dedicated to his products in the WND Superstore.

But Beck said he realized he wasn’t “supposed to have faith in any of those things,” and proffered the tactic of surrender.

“I remember that surrender is an important way of winning. Surrender. You’re powerless over it. And you are. We’re powerless over anything that happens in Washington. And so what do you do? You try to make amends for the things that you’ve done wrong. You try to live differently. Take an inventory, and then you take control of the things you can and you work hardest on those.”

He continued: “Just as I don’t have faith in anything [I mentioned], my faith grows in my family, and in God. I raise my kids and make sure I’m listening as closely as

Beck went off the rails when he marched on DC to proclaim his undying obedience to MLK. Beck is a clown and nothing more!

"There is a story in the Bible where Joshua is told to go to war, but when he takes his army out, God continually windows it down to a mere 300 who BELIEVE."

That was Gideon not Joshua.

I’m Catholic & I’m waiting for Glenn Beck to open his Book of Mormon to tell us how a tribe of West Coast Israelites were ultimately wiped out by dark skinned Jewish Indians.

His pushing “Food Insurance” is a standard Mormon teaching.

Wonder just what Catholic doctrine failed to provide for Glenn that made him leave the Church.

Ping!

And so Beck surrenders? This is pathetic and this is the apathy.

Surrender? To what Beck, to what?

Americans don’t ...see my tagline...

He really doesn't know anything about Christianity. It's amazing.

Thanks Glenn, no I won't give up.

More than I trust the Feds, and most school boards?
Walmart might not be as adamant about putting in pro-communist, and pro-fag material in the curriculum.

Again I don’t care how pathetic anyone else is.

Every one of you surrender monkeys are pure coward.

Again, you may go now.

Glenn Beck’s message about doing an inventory, making amends for past wrongs and surrendering is reflective of something that all recovering addicts like he describes himself should do.

Those of us who are familiar with programs like Alcoholics Anonymous understand what Beck is saying.

I am an addict who has done those things and needs to continue doing those things if I am to remain sober.

Where do I say to surrender?

I am asking what does it take...

I think you need another cup of coffee as your comprehension and aim is a little off this morning.

“I remember that surrender is an important way of winning. Surrender. You’re powerless over it. And you are. We’re powerless over anything that happens in Washington. And so what do you do? You try to make amends for the things that you’ve done wrong. You try to live differently. Take an inventory, and then you take control of the things you can and you work hardest on those.”

This is twelve step methodology. Surrender is an acknowledgement that the enemy has won. Who in his right mind can not see that?

But winning a battle is not winning the war. And fighting the next battle with the same tactics that resulted in defeat just might not be the wisest thing.

At root, this nation has a spiritual problem. I am not fan of Beck, if fact have listened to very little of him. I am even less a fan of our 16th President. Yet, It was not that long ago, that I learned something about the latter (that I had not learned in school). Read here

Well, here are my thoughts on this supposed Walmart influence:

Everything you posted shows Walmart succeeds like a monopoly (even though it isn’t one) which means it’s already like public education (only more successful, more well liked, sexually abuses far fewer children, isn’t beholden to union thugs, and provides goods and services people actually want).

He’s on Dish Network, not Direct TV. Other than that, spot on.

No, no! His next big rally will “restore faith” and everything will be fine.

Hey Beck!

How's that "becoming your own god" thing working out for you?

Yeah, it's all about him.

"Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bull$hit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American..."
-General Patton

"...we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender..."
-Winston Churchill

"Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world that a Freeman, contending for liberty on his own ground, is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth."
-George Washington

You're most welcome. I've actually been meaning to tell you that for some time now. I knew you were made of the right stuff when you first began posting.

Glad to have another patriot on board!

Beck's a charlatan and an a-hole.

Enough people have bought into his B.S. to make him a very rich charlatan and a-hole
