Convoy of hope: Glenn Beck arrives in Okla. with two truckloads of food, water and diapers

Glenn Beck and his Mercury One charity quickly mobilized to collect supplies for tornado survivors in the devastated Moore, Oklahoma, area. As Twitchy reported on Monday, Beck tapped the power of Twitter to help locate trucks and drivers to deliver the supplies.

Within hours, Beck and his team were on the road in what he dubbed the “convoy of  hope.”

Thank you, Glenn.

    Beck gets right into his charity. That’s why my money went to Mercury One.

      Amen to that!! I will never forget how quickly they were in Coney Island after Sandy. Hope they stay safe as more storms to come today.

      And here is the best example yet of the difference between liberals and conservatives.

      Liberals blame conservative victims for their plight, and because conservatives see AGW for the scam it is, they make jokes about how the tornado knew where to strike. Conservatives fill trucks with supplies, drive straight into harm’s way, and once there don’t ask about the political affiliation of those they try to help.

      • peasporridgehot

        Libs can’t wait to blame it all on global warming as well. I LOVE what Beck stands for!!!

            Instead of criticizing you Donna, I just pray you find some kind of peace in your life so that you will stop being so hateful to people who disagree with you.

          • KansasGirl

            He’s your G-d too Donna.
            He loves you.

            KansasGirl – I like your comment. Very Romans 12:14.

          • KansasGirl

            G-d is great.

          • lukuj

            ALL the time.

            Then who does the good things Donna?

          • madeuce42

            as ye sew so shall ye reap no vengeance what goes around comes around totally fair. So Donna be careful what you ask for you just might get it

            You’re kidding right? Are you that cold hearted? For real? Children are dead…missing. And you’re bringing up religion? I’m sure they had no ideological affiliations at this point in their lives, religious or political. Just innocent. All I can say is wow!

          • Paula Noakes

            The same one who hit the NE with Sandy? New Orleans with Katrina? California with fires every year? That one? Idiot.

            Hold on now – Donna thinks Bush caused Katrina

            Bless your heart @facebook-1269429397:disqus. Having lived through the tornadoes that went through Alabama on 4/27/11 and 3/2/12, with tornadoes coming within 1/4 mile of my house both times, I hope you never face anything like this. And if you do have the unfortunate event of a tornado and survive, we’ll be right there to help you and your neighbors, no matter where you live and with your hateful attitude in tact.

          • Tish

            I will tell you like it is Donna.. your not only ugly on the outside (your pic proves my point) your even uglier on the inside. you will need much luck in ur life, as u already know.. your miserable because ur a miserable person.. so no need to wonder why he dumped you.. just get used to it.. you will never find true love, your an ugly miserable loser & the only people u will attract, are ugly losers also.. but u already knew that.

      • http://www.facebook.com/donna.harpool Donna Camise Harpool

        unbelievable ^

        • KansasGirl

          I understand Donna, believing is a much harder road to travel…but the reward is joyful.

        • Carnival Barker

          I can’t believe that you have anything negative to say about this. You’re a hateful disgusting human being.

        • http://www.FunDMental.com TheRealJackpineSavage

          Yeah, the truth usually is Unbelievable to someone who is steeped in lies.
          I feel sorry for you.

        • Mark Congleton

          What’s unbelievable is the condescension and hate you’re spewing, Donna. Learn to respect others even if you don’t agree with them. That’s one of your leftist ideals, is it not? I notice that it’s much easier to spout such things than to actually do them.

          • Clete Torres

            Freedom of speech is reserved for leftists – unless you are agreeing with them. Didn’t you know that?

        • Jim Gamble

          They actually found several of those missing kids. Is that a problem for you? Douche Bag!!!!

      • madeuce42

        I never thought that American s could stoop so low as to give up their humanity To become thieves, liars, and worse WHORES for foreign powers. When you come before God I will be there to bear witness against you !!!

        • anatated

          Christ is the one who bears witness for us. He has no need of you since He was before you, He is now and He is already at the end. You would do better to bear witness to His love to those who He sends to you instead of seeking out those who you don’t agree with.

          America has not stooped, marxist have. Many have been deceived and have gone to sleep. Those who are awake need to stand against the deceivers and drag those asleep along with us.

        • Clete Torres

          Excuse me? You sure you want to aim this in my direction?

          • anatated

            Calm down, I hit reply to David not you and his is directly under my post. It was never aimed in your direction.

          • anatated

            not under, over…mine is under Davids post in my thread.

          • Clete Torres

            I knew what you meant. :)

          • Clete Torres

            I was directing that question at David – not you. I knew you weren’t talking to me.

            Look at the name next to mine on my reply.

          • anatated

            Oh my, lol…such times we live in…*sigh* :)

    • Diana

      Mine too, I knew without a doubt it would ALL end up for Moore, Okla.

  • Netmilsmom

    Beck gets right into his charity. That’s why my money went to Mercury One.

  • Leslie Ward

    Amazing to be off to OK in a matter of hours – that is indeed putting faith and beliefs into deed. Good luck. And God speed. Prayers to all in Moore OK and for all of the area – since the weather people said it isn’t improving today either.

    • Elaine

      This is why the Federal government should NOT be in control of FEMA. The funds should stay at the state level! Why do we have to beg for our own money during a disaster? The feds are so inefficient! Our money changes too many hands.

    • James W.

      gotta remember, he is in the Dallas area now, and its a mere hour, maybe an hour and fifteen minutes to the Texas-Oklahoma border

      • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

        Not sure what your point is except that he’s close to the affected area, so it’s not such a big deal for him to go?

        Was it a ‘mere hour’ for him to get to Coney Island, too?

      • Shelby is a Patriot

        Still another two hours just getting there, though. But as already mentioned, he went to Coney Island, so you’re post makes no sense.

    Sorry to be such a cynic, but how long do you think it’ll take for the feds to do anything other than pay lip service & praise themselves in the wake of this tragedy?? Prayers being lifted for all – victims & volunteers…

      by the time we get any federal funds, we will have all ready pitched in and cleaned up, donated what we could and helped out where need. It’s what we do best.

      I do believe there are people in New Jersey & New York still waiting on FEMA. of course by the time fema shows everything will have been repaired/replaced long since.

      • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

        We’re still waiting for FEMA here in Alabama too. And our tornadoes were on 4/27/11 and 3/2/12 with those in N. Alabama (where I’m at) following the same path.

        It was so much nicer then.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    At the risk of Scrutiny for being Conservative, Glenn Beck is an ANGEL! Bringing relief to the victims of this devastation. And speaking of scrutiny, KING FINK OBAMA is too mired in his scandals to help out, or so it seems…No Gov’t disaster aid yet? Let those “Conservatives from fly-over country” suffer? FEMA (Fix Everything My
    AS$) hasn’t been heard from, either, or I haven’t heard anything, at least…
    PROOF!:Conservatives DO CARE, Liberals only care when it suits them. #PrayForTheVictims! #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

    • 24fan

      I loved what mr beck said in his tweet that the government isnt needed nor wanted, they hold up a lot of precious time in blaming and finger pointing when it’s just time to shut up and help or get out of the way.

      • ChelieinTX

        Not to mention the percentage of what they suck out of the donations to feed the bureaucracy of whatever agency is supposed to help.

    and this is the way it should be: Americans helping other Americans, not Americans sitting around waiting for the federal gov’t to pass a bill to do something where only 40 cents on the dollar reaches those in need.

      I just donated specifically to 2013 Midwest Tornado Relief but trust Mercury to spend where the need is greatest. Let’s hope no other town needs it more than Moore.
      Donations indeed go 100% to victims. In the past, even the fuel to get the trucks to their destinations has been donated. I don’t know that this is always the case, but God bless everyone who contributes what they can manage.
