Interesting story about various state legislators who believe in a variety of conspiracy theories.

Conspiracies about the government are not new phenomena in American politics. From the formation of the Anti-Masonic Party to oppose Freemasons, believing them to be a secret society that was intent on domination of the country, to anti-Catholic rumors that President John F. Kennedy would take direct orders from the pope due to being the first Catholic president of the United States, the American political process has seen conspiracies come and go. But there is growing trend of Republican politicians taking up these conspiracies, which threatens to drive the Republican Party further into the fringe.
Perhaps the most recent example of this is the remarks of New Hampshire State Representative Stella Tremblay (R). In a post to Glenn Beck's Facebook page, Tremblay voiced support for a conspiracy theory that the Boston bombings were a "false flag" attack instigated by the government on purpose. She posted on Facebook, "Just as you said would happen. Top Down, Bottom UP. The Boston Marathon was a Black Ops 'terrorist' attack."

Nothing new, but the recent events like the Aurora, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon Bombing seem to have given it a different flavor.

Ann Bressington of the South Australian state legislature is similarly affected. I think Ann is up for re-election this year and tipped to lose. Matt McInnes of Australians against Chemtrails is a fan.... Hardly a ringing endorsement though... Matt routinely multiplies the number of people seen at his protests by a factor of three.

I remember contacting her press office on a number of occasions to get them to confirm that a Facebook page actually belonged to her. I never got any replies.

Does anyone know what Glenn Beck exactly predicted and when/where?
