I’ve was away from my desk all day yesterday attending to personal business, but I’m back now and there’s a lot to discuss. First off, the site is being transferred as we speak, so I’m writing this on Google Docs. After that’s completed, the nameservers will be changed. As a result, TRR might be inaccessible to some people. This could be 30mins or this could be 24hrs, it just depends on who you are (EDIT: Seems to have propagated rather quickly. No reports of it being down for anyone…yet) . This is a process known as propagation. The good news it the site should be a lot faster when everything is done, at least that’s the hope.
Anyway, this will be the first of 3 or 4 posts (EDIT: it actually ended up being the second) right when the site gets settled (EDIT: it’s now settled and yes, the site is much faster). What’s it about, you ask? Well, as you can see from the title, I came here to shit on Glenn Beck. The reason is, he’s now using Antonin Scalia’s death as an excuse to push his preferred candidate, Rafael Edward Cruz, towards the GOP nomination. Take a look at his quote, courtesy of The Daily Caller…
On Tuesday, conservative radio host and vocal Cruz backer Glenn Beck asserted on his talk show that God brought about the death of Scalia so America would “wake up” and vote for Cruz.
Speaking in the voice of the heavenly father, Beck told his audience, “You’re welcome. I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, look at how close your liberty is to being lost.”…
Last week, Beck praised Ted Cruz as the man who could get America through the rapture. “Fall to your knees and pray to God to reveal to you what the hour is,” Beck proclaimed at a Cruz rally in South Carolina. “This is your last call, America! Stand, stand with the man I believe was raised for this hour, Ted Cruz!”
In January, Beck argued the “hand of divine providence” brought about the birth of Cruz.
Earlier in February, Cruz’s wife Heidi told a crowd that her husband shows the country “the face of the God we serve.”
As you can see, this is nothing new for Beck or Cruz. I’ve never been able to get with this line of rhetoric, no matter where it’s coming from. It’s one thing to tout your faith and what it’s done for your life, but it’s quite another to say that God wants your preferred candidate to be president. In fact, that sort of thing is not only dangerous…it’s also personally offensive to me.
"Glenn Beck was much more likable back when he was a sloppy drunk."

Say what you want about Donald Trump. There’s plenty of negative things to point out and I’m on record as supporting the guy. Still, he’s not claiming to be on a mission from God. That’s more arrogant and presumptuous that anything that’s ever come out of his mouth. Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz should both apologize, but that’s not going to happen. Beck is already doubling down instead.
I wonder who they will be blaming if cunty Cruz gets beat on Saturday night, like every poll says will happen? Somehow, I bet it won’t be God.
