    Glenn Beck compared Obama's America to "the damn Planet of the Apes," Thursday during a rant against the president's praise for the AFL-CIO.

    Beck made the comparison while trying to blame union support of strong pensions for the nation's high unemployment rate. He doesn't like that former SEIU president Andy Stern sits on the president's panel on deficit reduction.

    The segment's accompanying online article omits the Fox News host's Planet of the Apes comparison.

    Let me ask you this Bfgrn....

    Can you tell me where Glenn was wrong? Union bosses AND POLITICIANS dont care about anything but themselves.
    Did the math at the beginning of his monologue work to you?

    Obama goes and says he wants to thank the AFL-CIO for fighting for jobs, tax cuts for the middle class to fight for reforms that will reign in the special interests ...... meanwhile he is standing in fron of a AFL-CIO billboard..... SPECIAL INTERESTS!!!!!

    Nothing seems to be real with this so-called President and his administration, and the complicant media go right along with them. It is all a big scam.

    IT DOES FEEL LIKE WE ARE IN THE PLANET OF THE APES! (Everything is upside down and inside out with these people)

    Let me ask you this, WHAT did Grover Norquist mean when he said: "We're going to crush labor as a political entity"

    The American labor movement and unions' SPECIAL interest is We, the People; the average working guy and gal. The American labor movement and unions have done MORE for ALL working men and women, union and non union, in this country then ALL the Republicans that ever lived.

    Glenn Beck is a sham. This is the guy who who has such disregard and lack of respect for his viewers that he sets them up to be ripped off on fools gold at 90% - 208% above the MELT value.


    Fools Gold: Inside the Glenn Beck Goldline Scheme

    The average Goldline markup was 90% above the melt value of the coin. The largest markup on any coin was 208% above the melt value. Furthermore, the average Goldline markup is 47% higher than better-priced competitors, with some of the company’s markups going as high as 102% compared to its competitors on one of the coins they offered.

    • Goldline Falsely Claims To Offer “Good” Investments

    By selling gold at twice the melt value, the price of gold would need to double for consumers to break even on their “investment.”

    • Goldline Salespeople Misrepresent Their Ability To Give “Investment Advice”

    Sales people imply that they are “investment advisors” or “financial advisers” by offering investment advice, which insinuates that they have some sort of fiduciary responsibility to get you the most return on your investment.

    However, since they are not licensed investment advisors, they have no such responsibility. In 2006, the Missouri Secretary of States’ Office, Securities Division filed formal consent order against Goldline for exactly this reason and recovered over $200k for an elderly consumer that was ripped off.

    • Goldline Plays off Public Fears of Government Takeover and Has Formed an Unholy Alliance with Conservative Pundits to Drive a False Narrative

    Goldline employs several conservative pundits to act as shills for its’ precious metal business, including Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Laura Ingraham, and Fred Thompson. By drumming up public fears during financially uncertain times, conservative pundits are able to drive a false narrative. Glenn Beck for example has dedicated entire segments of his program to explaining why the U.S. money supply is destined for hyperinflation with Barack Obama as president. He will often promote the purchase of gold as the only safe investment alternative for consumers who want to safeguard their livelihoods. When the show cuts to commercial break, viewers are treated to an advertisement from Goldline.

    “Goldline rips off consumers, uses misleading and possibly illegal sales tactics, and deliberately manipulates public fears of an impending government takeover – this is a trifecta of terrible business practices,” Weiner said. “It’s disgraceful that this company would capitalize on financially unstable times to prey upon people’s nest eggs.”
