Judge Orders Glenn Beck to Identify Sources in Boston Marathon Bombing Reporting

Glenn Beck must identify two anonymous sources used for a controversial report on the Boston Marathon bombing.

A looming First Amendment showdown drew closer Tuesday as a federal judge ordered conservative media host Glenn Beck to identify at least two confidential sources in connection with a defamation lawsuit stemming from Beck’s reporting on the Boston Marathon bombing.

The suit was filed by Saudi Arabian student Abdulrahman Alharbi, who was injured at the scene of the deadly bombings. Beck continued to link the Saudi national to the attacks even after U.S. officials said publicly he’d been cleared.

U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris ruled that Beck must disclose the names of two Department of Homeland Security employees who allegedly gave a Beck producer information backing up the radio and TV host’s claim that Alharbi was the “money man” behind the attack.

The judge said deposition testimony from Beck and two of his top deputies at the time — Joel Cheatwood and Joe Weasel — was “vague and often contradictory” about what the sources said and when they said it. She also noted that the key sources spoke directly only with Weasel, who claimed to record the information on Post-It notes “which he then discarded.”

Glenn Beck: America Is a ‘Petulant Child’ God Must Punish for Supporting Trump Over Cruz

In a tearful segment before a studio audience on Thursday, Glenn Beck said he believes America is a “petulant child” that God has warned repeatedly and now must punish.

Beck, a fervent supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz, campaigned tirelessly for the Texas senator, who he believed to be “the next George Washington” and a man “anointed” by God and “raised for these times.”

Cruz’s loss in the Indiana primary on Tuesday to the GOP’s now presumptive nominee Donald Trump was especially difficult for the radio talker because he views Trump as a Hitler-like psychopath.

Beck told his studio audience, “When we say we don’t know what the Lord has in store for us, oh I do: our reaping of what we have sown. So, I really think this was the last reckoning for us.”

“We just continue to make the wrong choice,” he added. “So, I would look for the things that we’re supposed to learn as individuals, but I think the country and all of us as individuals are going to reap what we have sown, and there’s nothing that’s going to get us out of that.”

Beck then spoke of God’s judgment in dire terms. “His consequences are eternal. And they are not judgments. They are promises. You do this, and this is what happens. You do this and this is what happens. We did that, so we’re going to get that.”

GOP Establishment Money Funding Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Erick Erickson To Attack Trump

Don’t fool yourself. They’re doing it for the money.

The next time you hear Mark Levin on the radio, or watch Glenn Beck on TV, or read Erick Erickson, RedState.com on the Internet, you might just ask yourself who is paying for the message? And why is it so stridently anti-Trump?

Don’t fool yourself. They’re doing it for the money.

As the spearhead of the “Dump Trump” movement, the same GOP establishment big-dollar donors and PACS that are pushing House Speaker Paul Ryan as a dark-horse presidential candidate, despite the big-government omnibus-budget deals Ryan reached last year with President Obama, are funding Mark Levin, Erick Erickson, and Glenn Beck, to promote Sen. Ted Cruz.

The Conservative Tree House blog exposed the financial nexus supporting prominent “conservative” pundits to promote in their media outlets Ted Cruz as the last, best hope to block Trump in Wisconsin, a state considered by the Washington-based GOP establishment as perhaps the last establishment firewall to block Trump from the GOP presidential nomination.

Robert Davi: Hugs Won’t Rebuild America

Friends, Rome has burned down. We do not need HUGS. We need someone who can rebuild our nation.

My Dear Fellow Americans:

I need a hug. Will someone give me a hug? I am upset about the genocide of Christians by the Islamic State.

Please hug me.

I am upset by the beheadings of Christians, the castration of women, young girls being sold into slavery, gays being killed, and Jews being killed.

Please hug me.

I am upset that moderate, peace-loving Muslims are being killed by both radical Islamists and the raging wars they cause.

Please hug me.

I am upset that for the last 30 years, I’ve watched as the middle class has been decimated by failed economic policies of the left and right.

Please hug me.

I am upset the GOP has been ineffectual in their leadership; I am upset that each year we hear speeches and yet the message spoken is as stale as a piece of rotten dog food. I am upset that the political platforms being sold by both parties have slowly dismantled America.

Please hug me.

I am upset that we have an immigration policy that has been put in place not for America’s interests but that of globalists. I am upset because of the fraud, waste, corruption, and cronyism in our government. I am upset because elitists, the establishment, pundits, and media do not want the political process to be fair. I am upset because they distort, lie, plot, and are an Army of Judases.

Please hug me.

Salt Lake Tribune — ‘Cruz in Utah: Glenn Beck Says He’s Fulfillment of Mormon Prophecy’

Lee Davidson wrote the following article in the Salt Lake Tribune about Republican candidate Sen. Ted Cruz’s rallies today in Utah:

Cruz also basked in the praise of two big-name Mormons: former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and conservative talk show host Glenn Beck.

[…]

Beck, a Mormon and conservative radio talk show host, said he always vows to be the worst enemy of politicians who do not keep promises. “I don’t have any friends in Washington except these two,” he said about Cruz and Lee. He added they are the first politicians he has even endorsed.

Beck said that he, like many Mormons, believe in a prophecy that the Constitution will hang by a thread in the last days. He said he believes that now is that time, and people like Lee and Cruz will save it.

Glenn Beck Ripped Conservatives While Trying to Get CNN Deal

Glenn Beck was bashing Americans opposed to illegal immigration, decrying partisan politics, and positioning himself toward the center just as he was reportedly trying to strike a deal to get his programming on CNN.

CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that “the idea fizzled fast and talks aren’t expected to resume.” CNN and HLN are expected to lay off at least 550 more people in what is being called another “bloodbath,” and Beck was reportedly trying to get on the HLN network, where he got his first break in cable television.

Stelter, who is one of the best-sourced reporters in the television industry and made a name for himself out-scooping more established mainstream media reporters, claimed he had no knowledge of the negotiations whatsoever when he unusually gave Beck two Sundays worth of relatively good PR, showcasing Beck’s Texas offices and future plans.

During that interview, Stelter said industry sources have said that major cable networks are reluctant to pick up Beck’s network because “there’s no other must-see TV on the channel.” However, Stelter’s line of questioning revealed that industry executives may be hesitant to make deals with someone who once referred to President Barack Obama as a racist and accused Obama of having problems with white people.

‘We Must Organize’: Glenn Beck Says ‘The Time Has Come for Boycotts’ (Video)

“Where the intellectuals are, we’re not allowed to even go,” Beck said. “So you’re not winning in the university, either. How do you win? … You have to hit them in the wallet, and you have to hit them in the heart.”

Glenn Beck said Friday on The Glenn Beck Radio Program that “the time has come for boycotts” and that “we must organize” on the conservative right.

Beck’s comments came during a discussion regarding his belief that the progressive left controls the media through universities and his call for conservative voices — like Rush Limbaugh — in colleges.

“You have one professor who is saying, ‘Hey, forget about the First Amendment. I need thugs here. I need muscle.’ That’s fine,” Beck said, referring to a Mizzou professor’s comments at a protest earlier this week. “But you can’t have somebody like Rush Limbaugh stand up and say, ‘Let me teach you about the First Amendment.’ That’s too controversial.”

According the Beck, the conservative right is “going to lose” unless it reaches people through their finances or emotion, because the intellectual argument is not working.

Michelle Malkin explodes myths about cheap foreign labor and American layoffs in new book (Audio)

“So you’re saying Trump is your guy?” Glenn Beck asked.

Joining Glenn on his radio program Monday, author and commentator Michelle Malkin tore into what she termed the “crapweasels” who are “screwing America’s best and brightest workers.”

Malkin shared with Glenn how her newest book exposes the lies perpetrated by high-tech billionaires and others who pretend to champion the middle class while aiding and abetting massive layoffs of highly skilled American workers in favor of cheap foreign labor.

“Here you have Google and Facebook and Microsoft and Bill Gates marching up on Capitol Hill and having his ring kissed – not just by Democrats, but by the likes of Orrin Hatch – pleading that they need more of these cheap foreign workers because there’s an American worker shortage,” Malkin said. “It’s about exploiting our immigration and entrance policies for their own personal and private gain.”

The name of the book is SOLD OUT: How High-Tech Billionaires and Bipartisan Beltway Crapweasels Are Screwing America’s Best and Brightest Workers.

At one point in the interview, Glenn turned the conversation to politics.

Cruz: Climate Change is Not Science – it’s a Religion (Video)

“‘Denier’ is not the language of science.”

On TheBlaze TV last night, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz told Glenn Beck in an interview that “Climate change is not science – it’s religion.”

“It’s religion,” he said. “Look at the language where they call you a denier.” As “the child of two scientists,” Cruz pointed out that “’denier’ is not the language of science.” The “essence of the scientific method,” he said, is to start with an original hypothesis and then pursue evidence that disproves that hypothesis.

“Any good scientist is a skeptic,” Cruz said. “If he’s not, he or she should not be a scientist.”

Cruz has no issue with being described as a climate change skeptic. He told Beck,

“Jake Tapper asked a couple of the candidates [at the last debate], ‘Are you a climate change skeptic?’ and, for whatever reason, they were afraid to answer, ‘Yes.’ I tried to jump in. I said, ‘Jake, you want a skeptic, I’m right here.’”
