Show 1083 Glenn Beck Documentary Rumors of War 2

To watch the video of this documentary visit:

http://youtu.be/9zMR-IM7N1I

 

Never forget. That is the rally cry after most tragedies caused by man’s inhumanity to man. It’s a feel good sentiment that people genuinely express to let the victims know – we will not allow this to happen to you ever again. It’s well-intentioned, but history reveals our actions never quite live up to the rhetoric. We always forget. And once again, the world has forgotten. Old hatreds have begun to rear their ugly head once more, yet those who swore to never let it happen again are inexcusably sitting silently by and allowing the hate to fester.

 

The time to remember is RIGHT NOW.

 

As the world spirals into financial chaos and conditions continue to worsen, fingers are already being pointed to determine a scapegoat. The nation dubbed ‘Little Satan’ is one obvious candidate to be on the receiving end of the blame. Little Satan is of course Israel – and the developments in the Middle East and around the world have been disturbing. The naïve promise the media once had in the Arab Spring has clearly given way to the inevitability of radicals grabbing power. The Muslim Brotherhood, long banned in Egypt, was immediately allowed re-entry and enjoys popular support. Turkey has moved aggressively towards Sharia Law and has befriended Iran – a nation who has renewed its long standing call to wipe Israel off the map. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

 

I know many people hear all of this and think ‘yeah, well that’s way over there – why does it matter to me?’ There are a couple reasons. First – if you thought ‘Little Satan’ implied there is a ‘Great Satan’ you are 100% correct. Who is the Great Satan? The United States. Second – if you fear the Lord (generally a good idea) you know God says that He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse it. But there is so much more to this story, which is why I made a documentary called ‘Rumors of War’. It’s a two part series loaded with jaw dropping information that will prepare you to make an educated decision. And yes, you MUST make a decision –will you stand with Israel in their time of need, and be blessed? Or will you respond to evil with silence?

 

As the Restoring Courage event I’m holding in Jerusalem on 8.24 approaches, I’ve decided to make Rumors of War II free for all to view. Share it with everyone you can think of: friends, co-workers, Facebook Friends, family and anyone else who will listen. I firmly believe in the American people, when they are informed, they will make the right choice every time. And there’s no bigger choice to make than this.

 

The world promised to never let this happen again. Now is our chance to do what every previous generation has failed to do: make good on that promise.

Show 1082 Glenn Beck Documentary Rumors of War 1

To watch the video of this documentary visit:

http://youtu.be/O5bp_dkpJXI

 

The documentary will explore the dangers that a nuclear Iran presents to the free world, as well as provide insight into the extremist regime that world leaders will be dealing with as they prepare to begin nuclear talks. The special will also examine the Iranian government’s beliefs and history.


 For over a year, the filmmakers have been researching and shooting this documentary. They have performed extensive interviews with former high ranking government and military officials who have been a part of top secret strategy sessions regarding the growing threat of a nuclear Iran.

Rumors of War will examine the current leadership of Iran, Ahmadenjiad, Khameini, who are part of a radical Muslim sect that believe it is their duty to hasten the return of the 12th Imam,  a Jesus-like figure who will wipe the planet clean of Iran’s enemies, of which Israel and the United States rank 1 and 1a.  They believe, and have stated publically that by initiating worldwide chaos they can bring about his return.

 

There is irrefutable evidence that they have already taken steps in that direction through terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas – adding nuclear weapons to the equation would literally put the entire world at risk.

 

“Rumors of War reveals the true threat level a nuclear Iran poses to the United States and the Israel, including ramifications no one to date has talked about.  The documentary reveals what may be the only solution to this grave problem,” producers added.

 The documentary will be available exclusively to Insider Extreme members. Subscribers to Insider Extreme not only get access to Mercury’s exclusive documentary’s, but also a six-camera shoot of the radio show, The 4th Hour with Pat and Stu, live event specials, and more. If you’re not a member, sign up here.

 

Rumors of War is the latest full-length documentary from Mercury Radio Arts, Glenn Beck’s production company. Past specials include Fundamental Transformation, 8.28: The Documentary, and Americans Traditions: Christmas. All are now available on demand on Insider Extreme.

Show1081 Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World.

Michael Medved talks to the author.

 

Overview of the Book-

Why does the world speak English? Why does every country at least pretend to aspire to representative government, personal freedom, and an independent judiciary?

 

In The New Road to Serfdom, British politician Daniel Hannan exhorted Americans not to abandon the principles that have made our country great. Inventing Freedom is a much more ambitious account of the historical origin and spread of those principles, and their role in creating a sphere of economic and political liberty that is as crucial as it is imperiled.

 

According to Hannan, the ideas and institutions we consider essential to maintaining and preserving our freedoms—individual rights, private property, the rule of law, and the institutions of representative government—are not broadly "Western" in the usual sense of the term. Rather they are the legacy of a very specific tradition, one that was born in England and that we Americans, along with other former British colonies, inherited.

 

The first English kingdoms, as they emerged from the Dark Ages, already had unique characteristics that would develop into what we now call constitutional government. By the tenth century, a thousand years before most modern countries, England was a nation-state whose people were already starting to define themselves with reference to inherited common-law rights.

 

The story of liberty is the story of how that model triumphed. How, repressed after the Norman Conquest, it reasserted itself; how it developed during the civil wars of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries into the modern liberal-democratic tradition; how it was enshrined in a series of landmark victories—the Magna Carta, the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution, the U.S. Constitution—and how it came to defeat every international rival.

 

Yet there was nothing inevitable about it. Anglosphere values could easily have been snuffed out in the 1940s. And they would not be ascendant today if the Cold War had ended differently.

 

Today we see those ideas abandoned and scorned in the places where they once went unchallenged. The current U.S. president, in particular, seems determined to deride and traduce the Anglosphere values that the Founders took for granted. Inventing Freedom explains why the extraordinary idea that the state was the servant, not the ruler, of the individual evolved uniquely in the English-speaking world. It is a chronicle of the success of Anglosphere exceptionalism. And it is offered at a time that may turn out to be the end of the age of political freedom.

Show 1077 Explicit Language. Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell, with Patrick Robinson

 

This is a 2 hour excerpt from the audiobook.

Purchase the full audio book from audible or buy the CD's then donate it to your public library. It is highly recommended by ACU.

 

Overview of the book-

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to be very close to Bin Laden with a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive.

 

This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His squadmates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.

 

A born and raised Texan, Marcus Luttrell takes us from the rigors of SEAL training, where he and his fellow SEALs discovered what it took to join the most elite of the American special forces, to a fight in the desolate hills of Afghanistan for which they never could have been prepared. His account of his squadmates' heroism and mutual support renders an experience that is both heartrending and life-affirming. In this rich chronicle of courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, Marcus Luttrell delivers a powerful narrative of modern war.

JFK History series descripion-  

 

November 22, 1963 remains one of the darkest days in American history; comparably traumatic, for those who lived through it, to the terrorist slaughter of September 11, 2001. The sheer senseless of John F. Kennedy's assassination made his sudden death especially horrifying and the unanswered questions swirling around the tragedy have denied the nation the sense of closure and comprehension that this disaster demands.

 

 Assuming that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered the president (as all responsible historians do) why did he do it? Was Oswald's own murder by Jack Ruby a terrible coincidence or an indication of a wider conspiracy? Why do a majority of Americans to this day remain convinced that Oswald didn't act alone? And, most intriguingly, how might a second term have altered the nation's history if JFK had escaped death and won re-election in 1964?

 

 In this special history program, Michael Medved speaks with authors of some of the most important new books on the assassination and the Kennedy presidency, including Jeff Greenfield, Robert Dallek, Peter Savodnik and others. He also provides a brisk, comprehensive summary of the indisputable facts of JFK's biography and the tragic hours in Dallas that claimed his life at age 46.

 

 Throughout this comprehensive program (with four hours prepared for broadcast, instead of the usual three), Michael stresses five aspects of Kennedy's life (and death) that most Americans misunderstand. 1) His status as an underdog outsider "fighting against the establishment" 2) His youthful vigor, robust fitness and athleticism 3) His visionary "idealism" 4) His character and good judgment and 5) His death as a martyr to a noble cause.

 

 The "truth about JFK" turns out to be more complex and fascinating than air-brushed nostalgia and misleading arguments regular promoted by mainstream media.

 

 

There are four unique sections and the first one features:

 

-Frank Sinatra singing Kennedy's campaign song "High Hopes"

 -Kennedy's closing statement at first debate with Nixon

 -movie trailer for "PT109" which featured Kennedy's war story

 -A clip from Kennedy's "New Frontier" speech

 

The second section includes: Jeff Greenfield, author of If Kennedy Lived and Camelot's Court: Inside the Kennedy White House by Robert Dallek.

 

The third section is a conversation with A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination by Philip Shenon and The Interloper: Lee Harvey Oswald Inside the Soviet Union by Peter Savodnik

 

And the final section: The Kennedy Half-Century: The Presidency, Assassination, and Lasting Legacy of John F. Kennedy by Larry J. Sabato  and End of Days: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy by James L. Swanson

 

Additional Resource: The Dark Side of Camelot by Seymour M. Hersh
