Would Rupert Murdoch let Glenn Beck say a bunch of stuff that is completely wrong and stay on Fox?

‘Glenn Beck’: Joel Rogers, Wizard of Emerald Cities



I never thought I’d be this guy. I never thought I’d be on a news network — never. But the country is on fire. I’m trying to figure it out just like you are. Why? Why?

There’s a couple of options:

Well, Glenn Beck is crazy. He’s saying all these things and just making it up. Really? Who owns the network? Rupert Murdoch. Do you know how much money Rupert Murdoch is — you know, he’s got all these things going on. Do you think he will let a guy at 5 o’clock say a bunch of stuff, put this together, that is completely wrong and stay on the network? Do you think he become a billionaire because he’s stupid? No, so that’s not it. Because Fox couldn’t allow me to say things that were wrong.

That’s why we put the phone here. We put the phone here so they could call. Because they had a little meeting and they said, Glenn Beck, you’ve got to stop him from saying — well, where are they? Where are they?

They came up with one thing in first year of my broadcast and I corrected that. So it’s not that. So why? Why can I talk about the Puerto Rico thing? And now, in the House, they’re debating it tonight. Show the box — they’re debating what we talked about on the program. We’re the only people — the only people that told you that story.

Why? How many Congressmen — how many Congressmen went, holy cow, I was completely duped? Why won’t the media report that? Why can we do this and the media won’t report it? Why is this not important?

Ask yourself this question: Does any of this matter? Because if it doesn’t matter — you see, they’ll say it’s not true. They’ll say this. They’ll say that. Oh, he’s bad. He’s got this. Whatever. Does this matter if it were true?

Because we have already given you the — if it’s true or not. Oh, I may be five degrees wrong on this one or one degree wrong on this one. I’m piecing it together. And I’ll correct the mistakes if I’ve made them. But this whole thing isn’t wrong. There is no way possible.

I’m not the only American that cares. I just don’t know what happened to the media. What are you a bunch of cowards? Is that what you are?

You think I know — you think I’m doing this and I’m not — oh, no, that’s pretty smart. Yes, I’ll be a hero. Do you know who I am taking on? These people don’t screw around. You think I’m not afraid? What the hell is this?

So here we are with Emerald Cities. We’ve got SEIU. We’ve got the great Van Jones again — Green for All. We have the AFL-CIO.

All three of these people — all three of these groups — are currently leading boycotts against me. They are all tied directly to the White House.

But we are just talking about cap-and-trade and the Chicago Carbon Exchange. Who is the wizard? Because if we have the Emerald Cities collaborative with all of these people on the board, your money is going to be funneled here.

Who is the wizard? Well, here’s the wizard — this guy. You probably don’t know him. You should. Wildly powerful man: Joel Rogers. He has a group called COWS. That sounds nice. I like cows. Yes. Not these cows. No, no, no.

He was instrumental in starting up Emerald Cities. He also founded the New Party. What is the New Party? Oh, fair economy, a real democracy, a New Party.

Do you remember the New Party? Chicago. They claimed that Barack Obama was their candidate. Barack Obama has said no, no, no, not me. Socialists. They’ve endorsed his campaign. It’s alleged he sought their endorsement but now, all the stories are changed. But again, you know, he also didn’t remember anything his pastor said for 20 years so you be the judge of that. The New Party. There it is, the endorsed candidate, Barack Obama.

OK. Now, here he is — they’ve got, you know, the University of Madison, Wisconsin. If you have kids there, you’ll be happy to know. And you probably already know that he is a professor here — Joel Rogers. Going to call him “J.R.”

    Cao on Glenn Beck


    4/30/2010 at 5:32 pm

    Glenn Beck is weird for a couple of reasons – one is that he is supporting the communist view of passive resistance…claiming it’s MLK’s non violence protest points. If you look up communist passive resistance…that’s in essence what it is.

    Beyond that, I think he imparts a lot of wisdom regarding the founding fathers and the constitution, which I like…but like a lot of media hacks…he must be fact checked. I don’t think people should blindly follow anybody…they should weigh the facts and make up their own minds.

    These days, though, people base their decisions mostly on pure emotion…because they’ve been thoroughly brainwashed by pop culture and today’s media.

    I don’t think Glenn Beck should be thought of as someone who is NOT a part of pop culture…and he mostly spouts libertarian views – a lot of which are leftist in their nature.

    Liberarians seem to have a lot of the same goals as George Soros, in fact….

    Discussions about Obama’s birth certificate go in this thread. Thanks.[/QUOTE]

    Cao was the first to interview Larry Sinclair:


    (Apologies if this not appropriate here. But I will return with lots of birther stuff.)

    (Would it surprise you to learn that I really don’t care if Obama smoked crack? really don’t care about Obama’s sexual orientation? But Donald Young’s murder is very troubling to me. I’m not making any implications as to Obama having anything to do with that. Larry and I agreed to disagree on that one.)

    (As far as the long-form birth certificate, which none of us has seen, there may be something on there that Obama doesn’t want us to see. Would it make him ineligible? Who knows! I’ve long held the view that even if Obama not de jure, he is de facto head of state.)

    (I don’t care about a lot. So what do I care about? I care about private property rights. The growth of the public sector is frightening to me. I care about these United States becoming less exceptional. I care about the rest of the world not looking to us for leadership.)

    (This is way off topic, but I favor HCR that emulates the system they have in Switzerland. And I look to Regina Herzlinger for leadership on that issue. And she has come out against ObamaCare.)

    The Constitutional Crisis in America’s Near Future

    President Barack H. Obama — or – President Barry Soetoro?

    A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet


    WHAT has he done to America?

    “He has, inside of a year, destroyed our alliances, abandoned our allies, nationalized banks, insurance companies, and the automotive business, and rammed communist healthcare down our collective throats.

    He has bankrupted this country and stolen the wealth of our nation and our children.

    He has embraced Islamic anti-Semitism, sanctioned the Islamic bomb of the Iranian mullahcracy, handed Russia Eastern Europe on a plate, thrown away our nuclear advantage, and despised us for our superiority.

    And then contemptuously told us to thank him and kiss his Marxist ass. “ — Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs (SOURCE).

    And, by the way:

    The veiled women are not only victims.

    Yes, of course, they are “choosing” not to be honor-murdered or rejected by their communities.

    But, they are also proudly, aggressively, defiantly, marking out Islamist territory in infidel countries; the fact that they have been brainwashed or not given a free choice makes no difference.

    These Veiled Crusaders view themselves as superior to an allegedly (and often truly) “racist” infidel population.

    They are choosing a glorified group identity as opposed to an unknown, difficult, lonely or dangerous individual identity.

    Finally, as I’ve explained in Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman, women are empowered to break the spirits of young girls and female rebels.

    Even more than men, women are conformists who are supposed to keep other women in line.

    Barbara Hollingsworth: Fannie Mae owns patent on residential ‘cap and trade’ exchange


    Crooks get gold ring on Europe’s ‘carbon carousel’


  14. blessedistruth Says:


    It wasn’t about mortgages. It was about greenbacks.

    The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation.

    Besides Raines, the other “inventors” are:

    * Former Fannie Vice President and Deputy General Counsel G. Scott Lesmes, who provided legal advice on Fannie Mae’s debt and equity offerings;

    * Former Fannie Vice President Robert Sahadi, who now runs GreenSpace Investment Financial Services out of his 5,002-square-foot Clarksburg home;

    * 2008 Barack Obama fundraiser Kenneth Berlin, an environmental law partner at Skadden Arps;

    * Michelle Desiderio, director of the National Green Building Certification program, which trains “green” monitors;

    * Former Cantor Fitzgerald employee Elizabeth Arner Cavey, wife of Democratic donor Brian Cavey of the Stanton Park Group, which received $200,000 last year to lobby on climate change legislation; and

    * Jane Bartels, widow of former CO2e.com CEO Carlton Bartels. Three weeks before Carlton Bartels was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, he filed for another patent on the software used in 2003 to set up the Chicago Climate Exchange.

    The patent, which covers both the “cap” and “trade” parts of Obama’s top domestic energy initiation, gives Fannie Mae

    proprietary control over an automated trading system

    that pools and sells credits for hard-to-quantify residential carbon reduction efforts

    (such as solar panels and high-efficiency appliances)

    to companies and utilities that don’t meet emission reduction targets.

    Depending on where the Environmental Protection Agency sets arbitrary CO2 standards, that could be every company in America.

    Climate change: opportunities and challenges for patent owners


    With an emissions trading scheme almost upon us, businesses and inventors are already starting to apply for and secure patents for innovative methods of trading emissions, as well as for clean, energy-efficient technologies.

    For example, in the United States several patents have already been granted for ways to trade residential emissions (eg, see US Patents 7343341, 6904336 and 7133750).

    Similar patents are expected to be granted in Australia.

    So, while climate change does indeed present a challenge to industry and the community generally, Australian innovators are well placed to seize the opportunities presented.

    It was released in the United States in March 1967 (Epic Records LN 24239 (monaural) / BN 26239 (rechanneled stereo)[1],

    but was not released in the UK because of a continuing contractual dispute that also prevented Sunshine Superman from a UK release.

    In June 1967, a cross-section of both albums was released as Sunshine Superman (Pye Records NPL 18181) in the UK.

    “Mellow Yellow” was the name of Donovan’s hit single released the previous November.

    So while the ardor of cable viewers for the Beck show may have fallen off a bit, he’s still a potent marketing force.

    Even with smaller ratings numbers, he’s still the second-highest-rated cable news host, behind only his Fox colleague Bill O’Reilly.

    And Beck’s year-to-year drop since April 2009 was more modest than others — 7 percent among total viewers and 6 percent in the age 25-54 demographic (the viewership advertisers most covet).

    By comparison, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann saw a ratings drop of 13 percent overall and 30 percent in the 25-54 demographic over the same period, and

    CNN’s prime-time hosts have taken an even steeper fall, down 40 percent overall from a year ago.

    By Glenn Beck



    • Now we need investors:

    Al Gore’s company — Generation Investment Management — is the fifth largest shareholder in the Chicago Climate Exchange.

    Gore’s company has several former Goldman employees on the roster.

    Then Goldman Sachs steps to the plate and buys 10 percent of the combined company.

    • Next we need the technology:

    Fannie Mae, under the leadership of the Franklin Raines, purchases patent on system to trade residential carbon credits that was described as

    “how carbon and other pollutants yet to be determined” would be “combined into a single emissions pool” and traded —

    just as Fannie’s toxic portfolio of subprime mortgages were.

    It appears Raines wasn’t content with destroying only the housing market.

    So you have the same crooked people who have contributed to the financial meltdown

    — Goldman, Fannie, socialists and out and out crooks —

    actually trying to “fix” the economy and the environment

    and, oh boy, believe me the fix is in.

    • Now we need the law:

    Well, the law is cap-and-trade.

    Funk Campaign: From housing to carbon, special interests rule


    We know how well the hokey pokey between Wall Street and Washington worked out.

    Well now we move on to Carbon, or frankly, ANY emission’s exchange.

    There is a Chicago based company called the Chicago Climate Exchange, Inc.

    This company was originally funded by seed capital from the city’s Joyce Foundation where President Obama was a board member of at the time of its funding.

    Now, the Chicago Climate Exchange is trading about $10 billion a month worldwide according to an interview by its founder (and patent holder) Richard Sandor.

    Former Chief of Goldman Sachs, Hank Paulsen was also key in the founding of this company and exchange.

    Rewind two years from the time their patent was approved and our very own Fannie Mae received approval for their patent of a residential emission exchange.

    Which, by the way, was approved the same day the political right sealed their fate, November 7th, 2006.

    Richard Sandor claims this exchange will be global and will become a $10 trillion market.

    *** So the question is what cunning schemes Washington and other global leaders devise to create a market that will have artificial value? ***

    In an interview with Bloomberg Sandor said that there is no risk of the emissions market ever crashing because it’s “regulated” and not open like mortgage-backed securities.

    Mortgage-backed securities WERE highly regulated.

    So you likely understand my concern with the SEC regulating an industry that according to Sandor doesn’t have the “opaque” value mortgage-backed securities had when that same agency doesn’t have a stellar record when it comes to securities trading.

    Furthemore, Goldman Sachs,

    a favorite of President Obama and many other Democrats in Congress,

    just happens to own 19% of the parent company of this Chicago based emissions exchange company called Climate Exchange Plc.

When you have as many areas of your life deliberately obscured as Obama does, there is always the chance of being caught in a major lie.

    The other thing that became clear is that no one yet has developed the kind of down-home language that could translate the issues at the center of the Reagan building discussion into everyday language. There is no Ross Perot doing that job as the Texas billionaire did with his chart talks during his eccentric 1992 presidential campaign. The grass-roots political force that logically should be spurring Congress and the president to tackle these ruinous deficits is the tea party movement. But it does not speak the same language as does Peterson’s billion-dollar foundation or the intellectual heavyweights assembled in the Reagan Building. Their declaration that “our current national debt is $12.9 trillion, or nearly 90 percent of GDP,” is not the battle cry that will send Sarah Palin’s ardent admirers into the streets. Peterson’s foundation could do the country a favor by uncovering a credible populist Republican who will buck his party’s orthodoxy and take that message of fiscal responsibility to the country.

    Why go public now?

  69. blessedistruth Says:

    But why is the Enquirer publishing it now?  Did it just recently learn this information – six years after the fact and roughly a year and a half after the Daily Mail published their article?  

    Could the Enquirer possibly have had whatever evidence they have of this a while ago – like during the election – and decided not to publish?  Suspicious minds, like yours truly, would like to know. I’m not making an accusation here.  I have no knowledge whatsoever, only a “paranoid mindset.”  

    But in the interest of transparency, I would like to see a clarification from the NE.  

    The mainstream media notoriously neglected to investigate in any depth the background of Barack Obama during the campaign and has been accused (properly, in my view) of extreme bias in that regard.
