I find it absurd that we are even having this argument.

I'll say it: Glenn Beck, I agree with you.

He's an american citizen. He gets mirandized. Very simple.
There already is a law, that was used in this case by the way, that allows for holding off on Miranda for a limited time.

Imagine if McFart got to be President? What a police state we'd live in!

I can't believe I'm agreeing with Glen Beck!
10:28 AM on 05/05/2010
I'm with Beck :)

First of all, Eric Cantor is the Republican's mud -slinger -in- chief. With no basis of fact he will always say the opposite of what truth is and give it an extra bump by critizicing Obama and company with words like "naivette" and with mocking tones try to make any move the administration takes as not the right one---ALL THE TIME! So, dismiss anything he says. Next, McCain (failed attempts to be President--Whew, we bit the bullet with that) and Rep. King (sticking his nose and putting his foot in his mouth on Nat'l Security issues, trying to seem knowlegable and logical=FAILS!) They FLIP-FLOP on this Miranda rights thing and seem disingeneous in their attempt to blame the administration for doing the WRONG thing. If the sky is blue--say its green mentality. They are barking dogs with no teeth, as far as I'm concerned.

It's hilarious seeing Doocey and the others writhing in their seats at hearing FACTS.

I'm a conservative that endorses Fox News, but I was surpirsed at all of the discussion about the Times Sqare bomber being mirandized.
There are not different "levels" of citizenship. It's not like some citizens get miranda rights, and some don't. Rights don't work that way.

That's untrue, I'm at least 2 levels above you in citizenship.

Now get back to leveling or we'll never be able to go on the dragon raids.

Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart both praised Glenn Beck last night for defending reading Miranda rights:

I can't believe I'm gonna say this. I... no, I can't say it. Damn it. Okay, here goes: I agree with Glenn Beck on this one.

*spontaneously combusts*

All kidding aside he's right, we don't abandon the constitution/bill of rights when it's convenient or popular to do so. There's nothing I want more than to see this guy tossed into a deep dark place and for the key to be thrown away, but like it or not he's a citizen and has a right to his day in court. But I'm confused because I thought conservatives are staunch advocates of the rule of law. Strict constitutionality, you're doing it wrong.

It took guts for Beck to say this because you know most of his Teahadist followers are probably foaming at the mouth to send Shahzad straight to Guantanamo. Do not pass go, do not collect anything. It will be interesting to see if Beck sticks to his guns on this.

Beck makes sense? Today the sun will rise in the west!

I was also amazed by his correct response. Possibly, yesterday the meds actually worked.

Anyone with a TV set already knows what his or her Miranda rights are. Committed terrorists like Al Qaeda are well aware of these and other rights and, like Republicans, think we are weak for having so much concern for the rights of individuals. You have a right to a lawyer and a right to remain silent whether or not you have been read your rights, so the reading of the rights only protects the possible prosecution of the suspect.

Reading of the rights is required by law. This law protects the Law Enforcement Officials and ensures that the accused is aware of his rights. Failure to notify a person of his rights will result in any information obtained prior to "mirandizing" being inadmissible in court. Additionally, any information gained based on the inadmissible information is also inadmissible, considered "Fruit of the Poisoned Tree."

"The problem with the Obama defense and foreign policy philosophy is that it seems to abandon the proven strategy of peace through strength"_Eric Cantor (R-Va.)

The problem with Cantor offensive and foreign policy philosophy is that it seems to abandon the proven strategy of peace through diplomacy, dialog and logic,

I would like to see where the strategy of strength has resulted in peace over the last 9 years. According to Cantor think, then was Faisal Shahzad acting out a strategy of peace through strength as well?

It's a ridiculous statement either way. But according to Cantor, Shahzad can also use that as his defense? Seeing it's a "proven strategy of peace through strength"! ...and Cantor has the nerve to question Obama's policy? Cantor has yet to make sense.

Miranda rights are a constant. Not something to be used intermittently nor decided upon according to charges or ethnicity. Nor used on a case by case basis.

Repost after reading of the successful boycott of Beck and debating Beck supporters who still claim he only states facts--claiming the President is a racist that hates white people would be one of his facts.

I sincerely hope someone has the foresight to place Glenn Beck, an American born terriorist, on the No Fly List.

I have no doubt that he will do something destructive to create a major incident that he can
bark about because his ratings are falling.

As time goes on and viewers continue to tune out, he will become more and more desperate.
His rants will become more and more outrageous, and his lies will know no limits.

I will not fly with American born terriorists like Beck and Rush Limbaugh. They are a danger to our country at the worse time--a time when America is at war on two fronts. Before boarding a plane I plan to ask,
"Is Glenn Beck traveling with us today?"

Well, here we go again. Just for you my friend.

Like I said last night, Glenn Beck makes an argument backs up his argument. Whether you agree or disagree is another debate, but you make false accusations and then can't back it up.

First off, Calling a man a racist does not make you an "American Born Terrorist" So you are going to have to try a little harder there my friend.

And, maybe that comment is worth looking into. Especially when The President has made comments like:

"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity- She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who...If she sees somebody on te street that she doesnt know, there's a reaction in her that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away, and that sometimes comes out in the wrong way"

"And yet, as I imagined myself following Malcom's call, one line in the book stayed with me. He spoke of a wish he'd once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged."

Hell, here is compilation of questionable statements.
