Glenn Beck is setting the gold standard in investigative reporting, and he is being rewarded in the ratings. His time slot may not be the best on FOXNEWS, but Wednesday’s show was a ratings bonanza. He beat everybody, even longtime ratings leader Bill O’Reilly. I predict if he continues to produce the clear and compelling television that he has offered this week he will be moving up the dial.
Here are some exerpts from his show about Obama’s civlian national security force. Prepare to be shocked.
All week we’ve been asking tough questions — here’s one more, Mr. President: Why do we need a civilian national security force that is “just as strong, just as powerful” as the military?
Here’s why I ask this question: Who are we fighting? Who internally is threatening our security?
It’s clearly not because we feel there is a threat from illegal aliens crossing the border, because anyone who would say that has been deemed a racist. A civilian national security force on the border is called The Minuteman and the attitude from this administration — as well as the Bush administration — is that they were “vigilantes.” So it’s not for the border.
It can’t be a civilian national security force against Islamic extremists, because according to this administration we aren’t even at war against Islamic extremists anymore. Is this administration really going to ask the American people to profile and call-in tips on Muslim Americans who act suspiciously?
