Glenn Beck is making a big splash with an alleged letter from an alleged woman allegedly from Arizona. Everyone is gushing about it.
I’ve spent the past half hour trying to Google anything about this alleged letter-writer named Janet Contreras out of Arizona. So far I’ve come up with zilch about her, other than the fact that she may or may not be a member of the John Birch Society.
There are three reasons I smell a great big fat rat. I did not pay much attention to it until I saw an article about it on Flopping Aces. Glenn Beck did to a “call – in” interview with the woman, but we have nothing to actually identify her other than the fact that the alleged letter is being used to hammer the GOP.
FIRST: The alleged letter comes out of Arizona. That should be enough to cause any thinking person to stop and consider the sources. Arizona is a hot-bed of neo-Nazi anti-immigration do-do mascarading as “independent” to hurt the GOP.
SECONDLY: I can’t Google up a back-ground on the woman. Just to see if an “ordinary” grandmother would “Google” I decided to Google my mother, Sarah Jane Reidhead. Enough popped up to readily identify her. And – she “Googles” – not because of my efforts, but just the things she has done in connection with our parish, political donations, etc. There is a paper-trail on her. There are 1,680 “entries” for her.
There are 30,300 entries for “Janet Contreras Arizona”. The majority of those entries deal with Janet Napolitano and anyone in Arizona with the last name “Conteras”.
There is an 18 year old woman named Janet Contreras out of Arizona, then someone who has a job in industry with that name. There may be a woman with that name living in Tuba City. There is a Janet Contreras who recently completed a Ph.D.
I can find no church records for her. There is no mention of the woman in a “search” for information – those crackpot companies. There are no political contributions according to Newsmeat.
She has no address, no educational information, no nothing. Either the woman used an assumed name or the letter is a fake.
After 50 pages of Google there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about a woman named “Janet Contereas” in Arizona.
THREE: Glenn Beck is an emotionally disturbed hack who is basically trying to destroy the GOP. He will do anything to hurt us, including, I think, fabricating or participating in a hoax, which I think this letter is. Beck is doing more to harm the GOP than anyone out there today.
