Glenn Beck On Executive Orders… Lies, Ignorance or Deception?
Monday, February 22nd, 2010

On Feb. 16, 2009 Glenn Beck told his audience to standdown and allow a “power grab” by the Executive Branch to happen “out in the open”.

What? Liar… you say?

I just read on another “Big” blog where someone called Glenn Beck a “Liar” (if you can imagine that) and the commenter was pummeled for saying it. Adding my response I said, “People don’t like to be called ‘liars’, so let’s just say Beck is a great ‘deceiver’ instead.”

During the smearing of Medina and the defining of “truthers” week, there was an overlooked, brief segment responding to the Feb. 13, 2009 article which included:

“We are reviewing a list of presidential executive orders and directives to get the job done across a front of issues,” said Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff.

That doesn’t sound good… does it?

No and no doubt many Beck followers felt the same way. Which might be why he spent a few minutes easing the fears of his viewers. A teaching moment for Beck to enlighten us on Executive Orders.

In the process of “educating”, does he raise your level of concern or lower it? If you answer by saying neither, then we can say he did not “raise” concern.

Watch the clip and then take a minute to check the facts.

If the facts differ from what’s presented it begs the question why?

Just to illustrate a possible Beck deception I’ll comment on a few excerpts of the show you just watched. From the 2/16/2010 segment which Glenn Beck calls –

“Why Executive Orders Should Make You Nervous

BECK: You know, yesterday, we talked about all the executive orders that Barack Obama has signed in his first year in office and he’s not the only president to use executive orders. Bush was writing them up like crazy as well.

Beck says “ALL” the Executive Orders? Yes, that might be a figure of speech and not meant literally but consider…

POTUS Obama has signed 42 Executive orders as of 2/15/10 when Beck “talked about all” of them and as you can see in this clip… he mentions None specifically.

OK, no big deal he did not mention any specific Obama Executive orders. He then goes into a teaser for the show we are reviewing here…

BECK: You will not believe the powers given this government through the executive orders already. Not just by this president but the last president and the one before him and the one before that. We should be taking powers away from these people. Not allowing them to sign more to themselves. But we will cover that and believe me it’s shocking tomorrow.

We are still going to get into the nitty gritty of the Executive Orders done by THIS Government. Right? No?

You saw the 2/15 and 2/16 clips and neither cover ANY of the current Executive Orders. Is that a problem? Well only if there is something that should make us “nervous” and that might be “shocking” as Beck has suggested.

Consider these Executive Orders that Beck Did Not cover and also realize that these are in FORCE today and might even make people really nervous. These Executive Orders Define what is cause for a quarantine.

Executive Order 13295 of April 4, 2003 “Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable DiseasesCreated by POTUS Bush II

Executive Order 13375 of April 1, 2005 “Amendment to Executive Order 13295 Relating to Certain Influenza Viruses and Quarantinable Communicable Diseases” Bush II

This 2005 amendment adds ‘‘(c) Influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic.’’

A quarantine order that can hold a plane load of passengers hostage or restrict the movement of all peoples in a metro like Chicago. How do you think these “quarantines” would be enforced?

Here is how those Executive orders come into play…

Legal Authorities for Isolation and Quarantine” from the site explains very clearly…

Federal isolation and quarantine are authorized by Executive Order of the President. The President can revise this list by Executive Order.

That second Amendment by Bush on 4–1–2005 added “Flu that can cause a pandemic” as noted on the CDC site.

So What? It’s not like we have a pandemic or anything right?

Well, you may wonder why this gets no press from Fox News or Glenn beck, but there is a charge being made that the WHO wrongly declared a Pandemic. The response may simply be that WHO ignores the charge and winds down the pandemic level.

BUT… this does not change what facts are today from October 24, 2009:


In this President Obama states:

On April 26, 2009, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the “Secretary”) first declared a public health emergency under section 319 of the Public Health Service Act,42 U.S.C. 247d, in response to the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. The Secretary has renewed that declaration twice, on July 24,2009, and October 1, 2009.

What does that mean? Not only are we under a renewed “Public Health Emergency” we are also under a “National Health Emergency” for “Influenza Pandemic”. It is “National”.

Basically we need 3 things to be in place before a quarantine order can be issued.

Follow me here…

  1. Reasons for Quarantine need to be defined. (DONE)
  2. Communicable Disease or Pandemic Declared (DONE)
  3. Executive Order to Quarantine (Stroke of ONE Man’s Pen)

Do you see this? Or not? All that is left to do is for Barack Hussein Obama to use his $300 pen and – Quarantine DONE. Plus whatever else may be required to enforce it.

Now remember, the stage was set by REAL Executive Orders now in force (not covered by Beck) and one yet to be realized.

“Quarantine” fear-mongering right? No, fear-mongering is Fox News’ job. I’m just pointing out some areas of possible “ignorance” on Beck’s part.

Why is Glenn Beck NOT telling you these things? WHY?

Back to “Why Executive Orders Should Make You Nervous where, not only does Benedict Beck fail to cover these Executive Orders he takes us down another path.

BECK: … that’s why it makes people just a little uncomfortable. And it also makes conspiracy theorists use them to drum up all kinds of fear.

BECK: I want you to know two things about executive orders: First of all, executive orders should make you nervous. It’s a potential power grab. Do it out in the open. Let’s do it the right way.

BECK: The other thing is, almost all executive order conspiracy theories that you’ll find on the Internet are wrong. I’m going to show you a pretty safe interpretation of some of the executive orders that are floating around there and saying, “Look, what the president can do.”

Understand what just happened. The stage is set here.

  • Conspiracy Theorists’ motivation is to “Drum up Fear
  • Right way to do Power Grabs is in “Out in the Open”
  • Information found on the Internet is Wrong
  • Beck will Show Audience the “Safe Interpretation”

Are there Any RIGHT ways for the President to do a Power Grab? I don’t think so… do you?

OK, now we get to Glenn Beck’s examples of Emergency Orders and guess what? He goes to 1962. Yes, 1962.

Forget about ALL of these to choose from:

  • Barack Obama (2009-Present) EO’s 13489 – 13530 (41)
  • George W. Bush (2001-2009) EO’s 13198-13488 (290)
  • William J. Clinton (1993-2001) EO’s 12834-13197 (363)
  • George Bush (1989-1993) EO’s 12668-12833 (165)
  • Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) EO’s 12287-12667 (380)
  • Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) EO’s 11967-12286 (319)
  • Gerald R. Ford (1974-1977) EO’s 11798-11966 (168)
  • Richard Nixon (1969-1974) EO’s 11452-11797 (345)
  • Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-1969) EO’s 11128-11451 (328)

Out of OVER 2500 Executive Orders, Glenn Beck Chooses to Use these from 1962… WHY?

  • Executive Order 10995
  • Executive Order 10997
  • Executive Order 10998
  • Executive Order 10999

BECK: And that’s the problem of all of the directives. What defines a national emergency? Well, the question really is who defines it? The president.

We covered that no thanks to Beck – Oct.24, 2010 H1N1 Pandemic… remember?

BECK: OK. Now, here’s the part you need to understand. All of these orders were signed on the same day, February 16, 1962 — John F. Kennedy. If enacted, they would have given the president of the United States control over all media, telephones, power, fuel, minerals, all of our food, all of our transportation.

BECK: What could possibly go wrong? Fortunately, all of these executive orders — and this is what you will not find out on the Internet — they were revoked by another president, Richard Nixon. I thought I hated this guy.

BECK: So if you get some friend who says, “Hey, I found these executive orders and Obama has put them in place.” No, no, no, no. It was JFK and Nixon revoked them all. But the point is, you’ve got to do your own homework. You’ve got to not listen to conspiracy theories.

The Case Is Made – Executive Orders Good

  • JFK (Revered) associated with Signing EOs
  • Nixon (Despised) associated with Revoking EOs
  • Again the Internet is a Poor Resource
  • Don’t Listen to Friends
  • Trust Glenn Beck

Yes, trust Glenn Beck as we sit here right now just ONE Signature away from a Quarantine Order.

And where does that leave us on the question in the headline. Glenn Beck on Executive Orders. Is this guy Lying? Is He Ignorant? Or is it a Deception?

With the narcissistic one it is hard to pin the rap on him of being a liar. He tends to do things in covert ways, using speech patterns and associations along with physical gestures and the likes.

As for ignorant? Not a chance. This piece of work is sharp as any and has a staff of 10 (give or take) doing boatloads of research. It’s like thinking he could not know about HR 1207 even while it had 200 co-sponsors (never to be mentioned again – it’s a MURDoch thing).

Which leaves us with one answer and that is “The Beck Deception”. Slicker than Slick Willy he may be.

One last point. There are many other Executive Orders in play. These are updated and amended on a routine basis. It is (as you review the archives) no easy task to keep up on the sleight of hand by our trusted (like Beck) US Federal Government.

A perfect example is the UnConstitutional use of Presidential Executive Powers to create an UnConstitutional Council of Governors. Which BTW was done BEFORE the Beck show just a month ago. Hmmm

Executive Order 13528 of January 11, 2010 “Establishment of the Council of Governors

I like what Chuck Baldwin said:

As with most Presidential Directives or Executive Orders that have the potential to swallow our liberties and expand federal–or even international–police powers, the mainstream media conveniently fails to inform the American people as to what is happening. Such is the case with Obama’s EO establishing a Council of Governors (COG). Therefore, it is left to independent writers to issue the alert. Thank God for the Internet! Chuck Baldwin.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
