Thanksgiving 2010, Citizen Wells challenge to Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck Thanksgiving Challenge

Glenn Beck has issued a Thanksgiving Challenge.

“You are probably, like I am, you are excited to enjoy a nice big meal with your family and friends — well, at least the meal part. I don’t know, I’m always excited for people to come over for the holidays until the family actually arrives. And then you hear the doorbell and you’re like — oh, crap, they’re here.
Unfortunately, for as excited as we all may be, I’m about to rain on your parade. Yes, that’s me. I’m your little black rain cloud. I’m going to issue to a challenge to you this Thanksgiving to try to think past the stuffing, think past the turkey in your face and watching football — and try to talk to your family this year about things that really matter.”

“I am the grim reaper of apathy. That is me.”

“I want you to honestly think of this, this weekend when you are with your family, what holds this country together? Is it our values, our principles, our history? Or is it materialism?”

“So, I want to apologize in advance, but it is important. If we don’t wake up our family and friends up and we don’t start having this conversation on a weekend like Thanksgiving, unfortunately, I don’t think that they’re going to know what hit them after the holidays.”

“I know it’s not easy to talk to your families about anything — really anything. You know, our families are so divided right now and we have to try to stitch it back up. And it’s hard to talk about anything other than football and food on Thanksgiving. But when you go through the news of the day, it’s apparent that it cannot be business as usual in this country.”

I agree with what Glenn Beck is saying. Our friends and associates who are ill informed and in denial need to be awakend. Glenn Beck addresses important issues like terrorism, our economy, inflation and more government control of our lives. But isn’t that like talking about problems in Nazi Germany in 1945 and not mentioning Adolf Hitler? 

I agree that Barack Obama is not the only problem, but he is a huge part of the problem and his issues go to the heart of the matter. Upholding and defending the US Constitution.

Increasingly awareness of Obama eligibility issues has spread. Rush Limbaugh, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity have all asked questions about Obama’s birth certificate, natural born citizen status and eligibility. High ranking military officers, including multiple generals, have come out and questioned Obama. Major General Paul E. Vallely, retired, has asked for Obama’s resignation. LTC Terry Lakin is facing court martial for refusing illegal orders to deploy.

Kerchner v Obama, with plaintiff  CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret), went to conference in the US Supreme Court on November 23, 2010. No mention anywhere by Beck.

With all of the awareness and information about Obama’s eligibility issues, one major media player, Glenn Beck, has not only not covered these stories, he has insulted millions of concerned Americans who question Obama. Beck has not covered these issues on Fox, his radio show and TheBlaze.com.

Glenn Beck stated:

“But when you go through the news of the day, it’s apparent that it cannot be business as usual in this country.”

Glenn Beck, that includes you!

If you are not going to cover the important story, or at least ask this simple question and demand an answer:

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”

If you are not going to cover this story of a lifetime, then at least

Apologize to the American people and the military.

 

Thanksgiving 2010, Abraham Lincoln proclamation October 3, 1863, heal the wounds of the nation

Thanksgiving 2010, Abraham Lincoln proclamation October 3, 1863, heal the wounds of the nation

A Thanksgiving Proclamation from Abraham Lincoln, October 3, 1863.

“By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State”

“fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.”

Amen
