Do you think Glenn Beck is purposely distracting us?

This guy does: http://www.prisonplanet.com/mao-and-rockefeller-beck-fails-to-call-out-the-real-monsters.html He says that Mr. Beck is concentrating our attention on the diversions so we won't pay attention to the globalist megalomaniacs like the TriLaterals and Bilderbergs that are supposed to be influencing the president. I think we need to concentrate on preserving our Constitution and making sure that it is followed, voting out career politicians and getting representatives with real backbones. Whatever group has us in their sites will be foiled better with this approach. What do you think? Is Jones trying to smear Beck or is there a grain of truth in his blogging?

If I were you I would pay some attention to Alex Jones: Alex Jones is very perceptive!

I saw his site about a year ago and thought well, there's someone who's really paranoid. But that was before the election and things have changed. When I saw it the other day, I saw a blog that I think I'd like to add to my sources for news. So yes, I plan to pay attention to him!

You are a world of wierd contradictions. This is the same man who has chastized the democratic party and the current president which you have so virulently defended. Have you seen the Obama deception? Do you think it is "perceptive"?

The thing is not only Glenn Beck is really scrutinizing this Administration but so is Fox. With all the crooks that Obama is putting in as zcars we need to keep informed and the other news media isn't reporting on them at all. They are so enamored with Obama that they can't see what is really going on.

I think Obama has blinded people. He hypnotized millions of voters and he's still holding power of them and the news media. It's scary for me to think of our country being under the spell of a mesmerist like that. I'm pretty sure they're going to try to pass some sort of a law that would make it a crime to criticize the prez. I hope they're not able to.

I think Alex Jones is a bit jealous of Mr. Beck. Granted Beck did support the Patriot Act, he said so to Libertarian Presidential Candidate Bob Barr. Numerous time did he say he supported some kind of bailout, as he said to soften the landing of the crash. My point about Jone's jealous is that he would have loved to be the one that could have exposed ACORN and Van Jones on a national scene. When Beck speaks a lot of people listen, but when Jones speaks very few except his own audience listen.

Well, they each have their own audience. As long as the word gets out there, that's all that counts!

I think it's a question of Jones not wanting any competition in the conspiracy theory business. It doesn't really matter who is behind the plan to destroy our country, as long as we have people out there exposing them. I think Glenn Beck is getting important information out to millions of people daily. That's good enough for me. There's not a lot the average citizen can do about the rich and powerful, but there is something we can do about elected officials. Arming the public with knowledge makes Beck okay in my book.

I like Beck. I just thought I'd throw this out here for discussion--because we all need every input we can get! I'm going to start reading Jones periodically, too, and I really enjoy Mr. Beck.

I think Glenn Beck IS distracting and he can drive us to distraction! Personally I think they're both full of it but that's just me. Annie

Ha! Yes, you have to listen to an awful lot of people and read a lot of stuff in order to get at the truth. Beck is just one source I use, I read left and right, liberal and conservative, whacko and serious stuff. You don't think our government is good, do you? They are SO corrupt and have been since the Kennedy era in the 60's. It's just getting worse. The only thing I can do is try to stay up to date and vote out anyone who is running for anything other than their first term!
