Glenn Beck in Israel - Visits the site of the Fogel Family Massacre in Itamar

I am most curious to see how Glenn Beck's "Restoring Courage" Event works out.

I cannot recall anything quite like it in my life.

I think Glenn is to be congratulated for putting on this event, considering the current events in the Middle East, let alone the obvious hostility shown to Israel by Barack Hussein Obama.

Glenn arrives in Jerusalem, visits Fogel home

Glenn arrived in Israel over the weekend, and he’ll be broadcasting from Jerusalem all week! He started off radio this morning by giving a rundown of all that’s going to be happening, and then described one of his first stops – Itamar and the Fogel household.

“I went to Itamar in Judea and Samaria, and I… our cameras were the first to be allowed into the home. It is empty now and they are ‑‑ they couldn’t get all of the blood off the walls. I will tell you, this was one of the most horrific, bloodiest massacres I could imagine. It was horrifying, horrifying. And yet in that community, profound hope.”

“If you stand in their backyard, you can see the two mountains: The Mountain of Blessing and the Mountain of Curse. It is the ‑‑ it is scriptural. Which do you choose? The mountain of blessing or curse. And this community has both. I can’t believe what people go through here in Israel, and the world stays silent. The media is distorting and lying, lying to you. Lying to you. And it is important that you know it.”

“We will bring you many, many things in the next 14 days that you will not see anywhere else.

When you see what we were doing on GBTV, you will ‑‑ you will know why I left cable news.

Because no one, no one who runs a business that cares about political correctness or sponsors or anything else would do it. Nobody be would do it. My relationship is with you. We’ll tell you the truth. To hell with the consequences. You don’t like it, cancel your subscription. You do like it, tell a friend. Tell a friend.

The truth shall set you free.”

Has PM Gillard kick-started The Australian Tea Party?

Before the last election PM Julia Gillard promised "there will be no carbon tax under the government I lead". She barely scraped into power but managed to get in by forming a coalition with the Greens aka Marxists, and a few Independents who went against the wishes of their constituents.

Who knows what she promised them.

Now she has done a complete backflip and is determined to introduce a "carbon" tax to please her Green masters, and no doubt to raise some revenue to make up for the shortfall in funds that the left Labor government has created by spending money like there was no tomorrow.

The last Right-leaning government had had Australia with a surplus.

Andrew Bolt explains:

THE tut-tutting started even before the first protester outside Parliament House yesterday unfurled the first banner.

This was the crowd that last March was so “offensive” and even “sexist”, frowned one ABC radio presenter.

And the thousands of protesters who again gathered in Canberra yesterday to rage against the Gillard Government’s carbon dioxide tax turned out to be just as angry and rude as last time.

“Dump the Frump,” read one sign. “Ditch the Witch,” read another.

There was a lot of shouting and a coffin was paraded to symbolise the death of democracy.

Meanwhile, workers inside the building sorted through thousands of government propaganda packs explaining the tax, which outraged householders had sent back, some with obscenities scrawled on them.

Yes, there’s an anger out there probably not seen since the dismissal of the Whitlam government, and journalists are in full reprimand at such rudeness to another Labor Government.

“Today’s carbon tax rally was a freak show,” sneered one News Ltd reporter. And the protesters’ calls for a new election were “sooky”.

The protesters were “vilifying” Prime Minister Julia Gillard, declared a Sky newsreader.

But what worries me far more than this raucous anger is that the Gillard Government so recklessly unleashed it, eroding the bonds of trust that still keep us together. Unlike what we saw in Britain last week.

Understand that anger yesterday, which we’ll see even more of next Monday, when the truckies’ “Convoy of No Confidence” reaches Canberra.
