    Glenn Beck Suspended From SiriusXM Radio Over Comments About Trump

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...b02912b24129b2

    SiriusXM Radio on Tuesday suspended talk show host Glenn Beck after Beck spoke with a guest who expressed hope that a “patriot will step up” to remove Donald Trump from office, should he win the presidency.

    The satellite station suspended Beck’s program for the coming week and implied that the future of the show may be in doubt, based on comments from Beck that have been interpreted as an endorsement of anti-Trump violence should the presumptive Republican nominee win in November.

    The controversy erupted when Beck agreed with conservative author Brad Thor, a frequent guest, as he fretted about the danger Trump poses to democratic institutions.

    “This could bring down incredible heat on me, because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer,” Thor said. “With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as president? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional granted authority as president?”

    “I would agree with you on that,” Beck said.

    The comments were irresponsible, according to SiriusXM.

    “SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs,” reads a statement from the company. “However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone.”

    “For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward,” the statement continues. “SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.”

      Yes, politicians cause a lot of harm, especially the ones with good intentions
      who unleash massive negative unintended consequences. They no longer even
      have the common courtesy to utter the warning catch phrase, "for the children".

      SiriusXM is a private company, so if they think it's bad for them, they can punish or fire Beck at any time.

      On the other hand, are these serious (realistic) threats? Are they even threats, or just stupid talk? Does anyone believe that Beck will be shooting or stabbing anyone? Does talk like this become dangerous when the speaker is influential? Will Beck be charged with a crime? Issued a restraining order?

      Brian, I don't think it matters whether it's stupid talk or not. I was always under the impression that even "stupid talk" was off-limits when it comes to threatening the life of the POTUS -- and I believe that extends to party nominees as well, once they have SS protection.

      I'm no Beck fan but I did listen to that segment and I really would never have even considered that they may have been talking about assassination unless someone else had first made the accusation. I still think this has been blown way out of proportion.

      Glenn Beck Tells Ron Paul That Paul's Supporter's Threatened His Life
      http://libertyfight.com/archives/201...lenn_beck.html
      Dr. Paul then replies, "well, I can only in general. I have no idea who the people are. I have never heard about this; I haven't seen this before but all I can do is address the subject of violence. I'm committed to nonviolence, no initiation of aggression. These are my political viewpooints; I believe in political change coming about in the mode of Ghandi and Martin Luther King through non violence .. soIi reject anybody who would use violence... so I don't have to endorse what they do, and if they try to get away with attaching my name to what they do, it's wong."
      ...
      Beck continues, "Okay. heres.. heres what, the people who are.. at least the ones that i have met and recieved tons of mail- and I can read them to you if you want sir.. where they're calling for my death.. They say that i am part of a 9/11 conspiracy. And I have watched the interviews with you. you don't leave any room for any doubt on a 911 conspiracy. But id just like to make it clear , and ask you, and I don't believe these need explanation, .. but may I just run through these 911 conspiracies?..."
      Little mention has been made of these alleged 'death threats' against Beck since then. If there has been any arrest, indictment, charges filed, trial, or conviction of the threat makers, it has not been reported by a single news outlet. This leaves the discerning observer no other choice than to conclude that the entire thing may have been fabricated. If the threats really occured, and were posted via youtube video or email, the person could have easily been tracked down and arrested. Case in point:
      It might be justice if he was, regardless.

      Beck has made up such things in the past against him to suit his own purpose. It doesn't strike me as far fetched he got a little cocky about lying and misleading about such things, and did something illegal.

      Whole reason sirus has him off the air for only one week. legal liability.

      Brad Thor, author of numerous best-selling thrillers — including one titled "Path of the Assassin" — likened Trump to a South American dictator on Beck's show May 25 and said that if Trump were to become president and turn out to be a tyrant, illegal means might be required to remove him from office.

      "With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as president?" Thor asked in the 15-minute interview, the full audio of which was obtained by NBC News.
      "If Congress won't remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president. If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office?" Thor continued, adding:

      "And I don't think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won't be able to do it through Congress."

      Beck responded: "I would agree with you on that, and I don't think you actually have the voices — we've been talking about, we've been talking about this off-air for a while."

      Of course there is a difference in reading a transcript and listening to the audio. The transcript is definitely more damning. All I am saying is that if I had heard this on the radio, I would have glossed over it not having thought that they were talking about assassination. In listening to the audio, to me it sounded like they were talking about if/when we elect someone who decides they want to be a dictator (in this situation, potentially Trump) who is going to step up and do something about the massive increases in executive power said person begins to accumulate. How will we get that person out of office once they have accumulated that power? I would not have jumped to the conclusion that they were talking about assassination and/or violence. It just didn't sound like that to me, based on the audio segment. I suppose that's just a matter of opinion.

      This is exactly the type of speech that Trump is consistently allowed to get away with. The media reaction to these statements would have Trump supporters bugging out.

      'We're going to kill Donald Trump': Shocking video shows parents teaching their toddler daughter to say she wants to murder the Republican presidential candidate

      By Hannah Parry For Dailymail.com
      Published: 15:38 EST, 31 May 2016

      Shocking new video footage shows two parents teaching their toddler to say she wants to kill Donald Trump.

      The young girl, who is sat surrounded by dolls, is heard telling her mom and dad, who are off camera: 'We're going to kill Donald Trump.'

      'Oh is that a fact?' Her father asked in the video posted by a right-wing blogger. 'Why are we going to kill Donald Trump?' her mother chimed in.

      'Cause he's bad,' said three-year-old, whose identity has been obscured for her own privacy.


      Shocking new video footage shows two parents teaching their toddler to say she wants to kill Donald Trump (pictured on the left is right-wing blogger and conspiracy theorist Mark Dice who claimed the family were 'no different from (militant Islamist group) Hamas')

      Her mother, who is believed to be a Mexican immigrant living in America, is heard whispering in agreement, 'that's right'.

      When asked why she thought Trump was bad, the girl replied it was: 'Cause he wants to take away our family.'

      'That's mean, huh?' her dad replies. 'Mean Donald Trump.'

      When the youngster's mother asks her what they were going to do about Trump, her daughter fires back: 'We have to kill him,' as her parents burst into laughter.

      The video has been posted by right-wing blogger and conspiracy theorist Mark Dice who claimed the family were 'no different from (militant Islamist group) Hamas, raising their children to grow up to be suicide bombers'.

      'Now Mexican Americans are doing the same thing to their children, encouraging them to want to kill the possible next president of the United States,' he said at the end of the video on Infowars.com.

      'This is the sort of trash,' the staunch Trump supporter said, referring to the toddler and her parents, 'Donald Trump wants deported from this country.

      That is how I understood it, the assassination is conditional on Trump being a dictator which is illegal. Essential one dangerous and illegal act begets another dangerous and self defensive act. But leave it to the censors among us to cheer the take down of a journalist doing a thought experiment on the radio. Had this been a guy they liked, they would have been the first on here mourning the death of free speech.

      If fact, I think we should all support the idea of taking out ANY president who has jumped the constitutional restraints set up for him by the constitution. But oh no, we criticize someone with the balls to say something that needs to be said and try to make him out as a maniac.

      He is truly coming around if he extends this idea to ALL presidents. I hope he comes out and doubles down on what he said and please do not apologize to the censors cos you said nothing wrong.

    Kids from the '80s may never recover from Great Recession

    Thread Starter: Matt Collins

    "The net worth of a typical family headed by someone born in the 1980s was 34% below what was expected, according to a new Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis study titled "A Lost Generation?" What's worse, the typical 1980s family lost ground between 2010 and 2016, after the recession ended. These folks, who were in their late 20s and early to mid 30s in 2016, were the only age group to do so...

    Childhood leukemia linked to lack of childhood infections

    Thread Starter: Swordsmyth

    Lack of infections during childhood is a common trend in obsessively clean environments that the babies grow up in today. According to Prof Mel Greaves from the Institute of Cancer Research in London, winner of the Royal Society’s prestigious Royal Medal, childhood leukemias are caused not just due to aberrant genetics or due to exposure to dangerous radiation but also due to lack of common...

    LOL - The food evangelists launch yet another salvo. They told us banning smoking would beat cancer. They told us eating the government approved foods would lower obesity and help us live longer. For fifty years we've been listening to and hanging on every word these $#@!s have to say, and we, as a people, are fatter, stupider, sicker and dying sooner than before. No amount of...

    It is gonna be a cold winter.

    Thread Starter: Danke

    This fall the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new Chief Oyarde if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society, he’d never learned the old tribal secrets. He couldn’t look at the sky to predict what the winter was going to be like. "It's going to be a very cold winter." So just to be on the safe side, Oyarde told his tribe that the...

    The free market solution to school shootings.

    Thread Starter: Madison320

    How about privatizing the schools and letting the parents decide which schools are safest? As far as I can tell I'm the only one here with this idea, which is a little disconcerting since this is supposed to be a libertarian forum. It's bad enough that kids are getting shot at schools, but the fact that the government forces your kids to attend makes it even worse.
