Glenn Beck worried about Obama’s trip to India



This is a fairly lengthy segment, but Beck has a lot of questions about Obama’s trip to India to see the festival of lights and why the MSM isn’t asking any serious questions about this trip. It’s reported that he’s taking 34 warships and renting out the entire Taj Mahal hotel which I believe is around 500 rooms or so. Beck says the estimated cost of the trip is almost 2 billion dollars, but his questions aren’t solely about cost, but about the President’s safety:

It’s funny to me how so many are suddenly on here out of nowhere calling this a “lie” and that we’re all just “lemmings.”

Personally, I find this to be “too outrageous to be true,” but that’s why I choose to do my own research. I have not had time today to find out for sure if this is true…but note I am not saying that it is since I do not know that.

But…it is just funny that this splatter of “lies,” and “preconceived hate” comes out of nowhere on this site when the story sounds insane.

Just as I would want to know for certain it is true so I can prove it before I say that it is…I’d like you folks to show us proof that this is a bunch of bullpucky.

Maybe “racist” is the correct term, it just can’t be said out loud. So many people have been against him since day one, have expressed a lack of concern for personal safety or his safety of his family, have even wished him harm….much of that before he even took office! So what was the “hate” based on then?

The $2 Billion is an estimate hence the word “estimate” right off the bat meaning that it may be less or even more. An estimate is only that. 34 warships cost a lot of money in case you’ve never looked at the national defense budget. If there are in fact 40 aircraft as well, that’s an even more whopping price tag. If he’s seriously rented out entire buildings literally for a week…that’s pretty danged expensive as well (even for India). So…this information could be blown out of proportion and it might not cost anywhere near that much. Here’s my personal issue even more than anything else anyway regardless. The economy’s in ruin, the debt is over 13.5 Trillion dollars and this president decides that rather than truly trying to get anything done to help our country…he wants to go to India to “experience the lights,” so…it’s NOT the cost OR… Read more »

The President’s hotel faces the ocean, I believe, thus the harbor full of US and Indian warships.

They’re even taking down coconuts from the trees so he isn’t beaned…according to the London “Telegraph”

Why does Beck care so much about this particular trip? I just cant understand why all the sudden on this trip he is so worried about security. Terrorism is the last thing that comes to mind when i think of reasons why this trip should not happen. Most acts of terrorism are false flag events sponsored by gov’t anyways. He is no more in danger on this trip than any other trip he takes. it seems like quite an overreaction by beck and cronies. This trip is a bad idea because it continues to show the president as an out of touch elitest and is an insane waste of money.

This is true. With 34 warships and 40 aircraft (if that’s true) as well as a number of secret service around him all the time as well as sectors being shut down…I don’t see him being harmed.HOWEVER…by the very logic you just stated…if terrorist attacks are indeed false flag events (which I happen to believe at least most of the time myself)…the president may very well be a puppet who has worn out his usefulness and what better way to end the republic and the New World Order take over than to have a false flag terror attack kill the president?

As much as I disagree with just about everything he stands for and can’t wait till he is out of office, I do not wish for an attack in any form. it would only strenghten him.
However, the hype, timing, and even the reason for his three India (to see the festival of lights) just seem a little overblown. Maybe he is trying to deflect attention from the election results or maybe there is something more sinister at work. Only time will tell.

There was no denial, but more of an explanation why. He did mention that usually another plane accompanies Air Force One, but didn’t deny 40 planes total. Also in the video, they are talking about another trip to Indonesia next year. Only spending one day there this time.

I read on another site that it was 800 rooms. Is the story growing as it is being told. Could this not have been done with conference calls, skype or other way instead of spending 2 billion that we do not have. Why does he need 34 war ships and how many does that leave to protect our country and our military? Just more disgusting news fronm DC.
Two billion could go along way to create jobs and promote small business to start the economy growing.

It’s 560-570 rooms in just the Taj Mahal. Rumors there are 2 other hotels being used. Dumbama doesn’t care what he spends. Socialists have no problem spending other people’s money.

The “500 hotel rooms” thing is from an email debunking all this rumor. They tried to point out that in order to spend 200 million in a day, the same amount that the war in Afghanistan, they’d have to rent out an absurd number of rooms, but someone took it as fact and ran with it. I also heard someone suggest that 200 million is the cost in rupees.

Hi Calm&Collected Thanks for the response. Everything I have read and heard is saying 34 warships. Today I heard he is making the 10day trip and reserving all these rooms because he wants to see the “Festival of Lights”. Seems bizzare to me and just plain insane. So I hope he has far bigger reason than for entertaining himself (or maybe it’s just as well that he goes just to watch a light show, at least he can’t do more harm to the US that way). Two million can go along way to create jobs, spark small businesses for economic growth or just plain feed people or pay up motgages. Is being responsible too much to ask from our politicians. There are so many rumors coming from DC can’t be sure what’s real anymore. I absolutely do not trust this man sitting in our WH at all – somethings up.

Hi Josie, This report in particular is based off of India based sources. Not American. So I’m choosing not to believe it. Obama will probably be accompanying a ship or two already assigned to go to India, not 34. It takes a good couple weeks for 34 ships to get there from here, so how would they get there starting when this video came out? I have a way of finding my sources, where it’s all first person. I don’t pay attention to second/third hand reports by radio hosts, comedians, or anybody who seems to have an agenda. So i don’t really listen to beck, or his group of people, nor do i listen to Colbert, and democrat leaning groups. Instead I listen to speeches, i look for clarity, and not open-ended statements. For instance, if a candidate says “I’m going to fix the job market” I immediately take it… Read more »

Nothing is going to happen, not immediately, except stagnation. Now who’s fault the stagnation is, is totally up to debate, but that debate itself will only divide the sides further, quite the “catch 22” really. Not everything needs a “strong stand” for or against, it needs a “strong support”, and neither side has that support because they have rather one sided ideals. and since when was everything one sided?
