The dark side of government has grown to be larger than the white side.
How CIA agents and politicians get blackmailed.
“They’ve got to make sure that you’re morally corruptible.”
“They like to have people who have a clean cut appearance who can fool other people,
but they want to make sure they’re corruptible.”
“We need more leakers.”
God won’t make evil people good.
He won’t interfere with their free will.
Alex asks advice on how to not be so frustrated
with people’s unwillingness to look at what’s going on:
“We have to give them space.
We have to not be too pushy on people,
and give them time to absorb this….
Wait till they sense something is wrong.
That takes the frustration away.”
Joel’s take on Glenn Beck
More on Glenn Beck
“He’s gone so far down the river now
in condemning conspiracy —
I happen to know from private sources that
he’s actually beginning to believe that conspiracy really occurs.
But he can’t say so now.
He knows he’d lose his position at Fox News,
and so he’s in denial. …
They can’t admit they were wrong….
They actually have to screw up their mind
and convince themselves that what they feel is not right.”
“I think we have to understand that Glenn is a weak person.
He, himself admits that he’s a weak person.
And the establishment really loves to use that.
Sarah Palin is a weak person.”
“They’re putting false heroes in front of us
to divert the public from those who would really do a good job.”
“There’s a difference between people like Rush Limbaugh and O’Reilly and Hannity.
These people are actually on the other side, in my opinion,
and they’re just playing the conservative.
Glenn Beck is sincerely on our side,
but he’s manipulated.”
Barack Obama co-opted:
“This guy is a fraud from the very beginning,
but the real sign is when they make him wealthy.
This guy has been co-opted.
I think he’s a controlled entity.”
Media personality litmus test:
how do they handle the conspiracy issue?
Rush Limbaugh sold out
“He made that contract,
and the next day….
“That constant smirk…”
“They won’t even let them finish a sentence.”
“They bought into the concept,
which I believe is part of
the media conspiracy
that we must denigrate this issue of conspiracy
so no one dares bring that up….”
