Glenn Beck strikes a nerve at the White House

The White House attacked Glenn Beck today on the official White House blog.

From The Hill:

The official White House blog slammed Glenn Beck today, accusing the host of displaying a "disregard for the facts in an attempt to smear the Administration's efforts to win the Olympics for the United States."

Last night, the conservative firebrand attacked the President for lobbying hard to get the 2016 Olympics to come to Chicago.

Today, the White House released a point by point rebuttal of some of Beck's statements.

Actually Beck did not smear the Administration’s efforts for trying to win the Olympics for Chicago. Instead, Beck spent most of the segment showcasing Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s right hand gal, and her ties to various shady characters. But it is the connection between Valerie Jarrett, the Chicago Olympic committee and the Chicago slumlords [herself included] that stand to make big money off their roach motels should the Olympics come to Chicago.

In other words, Glenn Beck struck a nerve. Something tells me after Beck’s next segment, Valerie Jarrett may not want to unpack her suitcase after she returns from Copenhagen.

Here is a the Valerie Jarrett clip from Beck’s show:

Here is a long but excellent piece at FrontPage Magazine that details all of Valerie Jarrett’s special relationships. Something tells me we are going to be hearing a lot more about Valerie Jarrett soon.

Ya know, Im getting a little annoyed at people saying commentators (of any persuasion) are lying. Over and over (especially with Beck lately) you hear "(insert name) is lying, this is just a smear campaign"

Hey White's a tip. If the facts being reported on are wrong, bring up the lible lawsuit. Go ahead, I dare ya!

With all the troubles we have in this nation, trying to get the Olympics to come here should be the very last thing to worry about. This Administration needs to get it's priorities straight.

MKotyk88, I agree with you.

To do a bit of 'let's suppose...'

The Olympics are scheduled for 2016... so let's suppose the current administration is still in power so 'the one' can be honored for bringing this circus to our shores.

On the other hand, let's suppose the current administration is no longer in power... the next occupant of the WH will get no kudos if all goes well, but will get the burden of blame if anything goes wrong (and it will!)

Let's suppose terrorists decide to make the 2016 Olympics a really Big Splash (Heaven help us all!)

Let's suppose besides the multi-trillion debt we all now have riding on our kids shoulders, somehow we end up paying for this audacious display. (Remember, it took Montreal 30 years to pay for their extravaganza!)

Let's not suppose but pray Rio gets the bid!

I know what you mean. This administration loves to act like it is the only one who ever has the truth. In actuality all they have is disinformation.

When they get caught all they do is discard the first person they can.

On his radio show today Beck replied... needless to say it was roll on the floor hilarious.

They played with the whole Vancouver/Calgary issue for almost a half an hour, proving that if that's the best the WH has to offer in the way of a rebuttal they've got a lot of trouble yet to come.

Clifton B said...


Oh they have their priorities straight, fill their pockets first!

Clearly we will end up paying for the Olympics if it comes to Chicago, Chicago is broke, broke, broke.

I am praying for Rio too, but I suspect the fix is already in.

Clifton B said...


The White House should know by now, that messing with Beck is bad news. It only makes him dig deeper.

Cliff - Just wanted you to know I just posted on this subject, including two clips from today's radio show as well as the opening segment of today's TV show.

In my post, I linked to this post of yours as a point of reference to gather some of the information. I also specifically mentioned the link you have to the FrontPage piece.

Thanks for the link, I am heading over to your blog to check it out.

Great Post Cliff, I saw on Soloman's blog. Jarrett is bad news, I'm glad Glenn exposed her for the commie and crook she is. I guess the WH is REALLY mad at Glenn now, oh well, the truth hurts w/ this bunch.
