Glenn’s interview with Brian Lilley

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

TheBlaze TV’s interest in Current was dismissed by Gore in favor of al Jazeera, but the media seems more concerned with Glenn’s dealings while ignoring at the prospect of Gore being ‘aligned’ with the network that spews anti-American propaganda. More details on the shocking purchase move on radio today came during Glenn’s interview with Brian Lilley from Sun News.

Transcript of the interview is below:

GLENN: We go to Brian Lilley. He’s a broadcaster out of Ottawa, Canada on Sun television network. Sun is trying to do very much the same thing that we’re doing with TheBlaze up in Canada. These are like‑minded guys and freedom lovers and really, really wicked smart. I feel a little embarrassed because I always know more about what we’re doing here than I know about Canada. But he ‑‑ Brian has ‑‑ hi, Brian, how are you, sir?

LILLEY: Oh, good to talk to you again, Glenn.

GLENN: You ‑‑

LILLEY: But I’m calling with an apology really.

GLENN: Why?

LILLEY: Because we’re giving you in a way ‑‑ this is my apology on behalf of all the people in Canada to all the people of the United States of America because we gave birth to what is soon to become Al‑Jazeera USA because before Al Gore bought it, Current TV started out as the U.S. operations of our state broadcaster, CBC. And I can tell you they didn’t really change editorial direction when Gore bought them and I don’t think they will change editorial direction all that much with Al‑Jazeera at the helm.

GLENN: Well, that’s why he’s selling it to them. He said that. I mean, you know, here’s the amazing thing: His life goal was to build this, you know, network to get the word out. They’re firing everybody. They’re going to fire all of the people that built this network and then build ‑‑ you know, Al‑Jazeera will build their own, you know, thing. There’s no mention of all the employees that Al Gore is pleased as punch that he’s made $100 million on but all these employees are all gone. All just you gone.

LILLEY: It will allow them to continue to fly in his personal jets with limos in the back to give speeches about how you and I need to reduce our global footprint.

GLENN: Brian, understand I won’t do this on your show but if you’re on my show, you have to say “about” not “aboot.”

PAT: You have to.

GLENN: I’ll say aboot on your show if it makes you more comfortable but just something ‑‑

LILLEY: I’ll watch that.

GLENN: I don’t know what happened. What happened to you in Canada where that happened?

PAT: That’s weird.

GLENN: I mean, of all the things to be different on, that’s not the thing I would choose, like, we’re going to say “about” differently. What’s that?

LILLEY: My youngest daughter, that’s my excuse. It’s aboot…(inaudible) right now, you know?

GLENN: Yeah. So how do you feel about ‑‑ I mean, your perspective ‑‑ because I’m not convinced ‑‑ let’s put it this way: The Wall Street Journal, the Business Insider, the Huffington Post, everybody is now kind of talking about this story about our failed bid for Current instead of saying the former vice president of the United States just sold his network and said he’s ideologically aligned with Al‑Jazeera. How does that ‑‑ what does that say to you in Canada about America?

LILLEY: I’m not shocked. And again I go back to the fact that this started as a CBC operation and there’s these connections that go between CBC and the international left and Al‑Jazeera and what’s going on. The guy that headed up Al‑Jazeera, English when it started is a gentleman named Tony Berman, and Tony Berman has since retired. He used to head up CBC news division here in Canada, the national broadcaster funded with a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, and he left CBC to go start Al‑Jazeera English. And he took a bunch of people with him. He since retired and now he’s ‑‑ this is even more scary. He’s teaching journalism students at a university in Toronto. That is more frightening. But he took a lot of his employees with him including a guy named Avi Lewis. I think he’s still there. Avi Lewis’ father is very famous. His name’s Stephen Lewis because he’s still going around the world as a special agent of the United Nations dealing with AIDS. He’s the go‑to guy on the AIDS issue. They are all socialists, international leftists, connected him with Al‑Jazeera, connected him with Al Gore. Avi Lewis’ wife is Naomi Klein who wrote Shock Doctrine. She’s a hero of the American left. They make millions doing this, by the way. They make themselves very wealthy. But it is a global leftist ideology and that’s why it wraps up so nice together.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Brian from Sun News in Canada.

    With the government allowing the selling of Current TV to their allies in Al Jazeera Obama has again shown his true colors and how much he hates this nation. How much time does the land have left before we fall apart completely?

    The madness of the progressives and Obama continues unabated.

    Current TV were the one’s who sent two people into N. Korea through China to spy on their government.

    They got caught and were sentenced to prison. Billy Clinton had to go to N. Korea and kiss their ass to get them released.

    That’s Al Gore and Current TV for ya.

    Here’s Obama coverup “In public statements, administration officials frequently referred to the two journalists as “young women” who might have inadvertently crossed the North Korean border, and urged North Korea to return them to their families. “Their detainment is not something that we’ve linked to other issues, and we hope the North Koreans don’t do that, either,” Robert Gibbs, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, told reporters on Monday afternoon.”

    Laura Ling, 32, and Euna Lee, 36 purposely entered N. Korea through China because they were denied entrance into the country by the N, Korean government.

    Obama lives in a world of lies.

    If that happens, how funny if they sold it to Beck.

    Yea, and this kind of thing will continue, at lease, for the next 4 years because of the stupid and uninformed American voter.  Even the Republican Party leader of the House, Boehner, has turned leftward.  He just wants to be popular with the media and thus will make sure Obama gets what he wants from the House.  He had a chance last year to step up and defund ObamaCare, but refused to do so and now we are stuck forever with this bad socialist/communist legislature.  Watch for him to either continue this “continuing resolution” crap whereby the left gets to continue funding their projects, or he will just go along with Harry Reid and Obama’s complete socialization of our economy.  I do not look for this to ever change back to where our leaders follow the constitution.  We have definitely become a nation of “you scratch my back and I will scratch your back.”   The weak kneed Republicans failed to oust Boehner from his Speaker position today and we will suffer for this.

    You can say what you want about this sale, but I’d like to know how much Glenn was offering for Current TV. If Gore was 20% partner, he alone did NOT make the decision to sell it to Al-Jazeera. Just remember that A-J paid $500,000 for Current. Don’t treat the whole thing as an Al Gore sole owner.
    Having said that, here’s a great chance for Glenn to take over more viewers from A-J, especially if people turn to other channels. Just keep telling the truth and keep digging after the left fanatics and more viewers will come. But, when viewers see similar tactics from Glenn as they see from other media, viewership will not grow.

    They were threatened with extinction by George Sorros, man takes down countries, Fox News Corp would have been a mere mental exercise to him and Rupert was yelling how high and what color as he leapt in the air.. Beck never had a chance and I’m not totally convinced he cared one way or the other.

    This is only the begging of the propaganda against the USA. First it will be a soft sell then they will turn up the heat to get the Americans used to bowing to the mohommedists and have more mosques near them and to listen to the high pitched screams to Satan. Calling to prayer. This is not a religion it is a Satanic Cult. A very successful cult but a cult all the same. It is not Islam. Islam died in 1948 when it was no longer necessary for the Muslims to check with the Holy Bible/Torah to correct any verses in the quran. Since then they are mohommedists. Pedophiles, marriage to 6 year olds or younger as they see fit. Wife beaters, Homosexuals, liars, Blasphemers. Everything they stand for is and absolute opposite of the Judeo/Christian values we all grew up with.

    I wouldn’t give the lint in my belly button for Current TV.  I don’t like Al-Jazeera, but I didn’t think they were stupid until I heard of this.  They got ripped off big time.  Too bad that POS hypocrite Al Gore was the beneficiary.

    I really wish Glenn Beck internet channel would come to TV, I’m kinda trying to be fiscally responsible with my money so we can’t afford The Blaze but we would love if it went onto our cable system.  In the meantime, I will watch the free videos.  Thankyou Glenn!

    How do you connect Obama to this sale?  Technically, in a free market you can sell to whom you want to and both rep/dem have put place into this legislation that doesn’t ban foreign ownership to any degree.  Why not tie this to Bush or Romney? 

  • jen

    remember, the bush family openly has close personal and business ties to the saudi royal family and who knows whoelse.  the saudis are also radicals.  apparently, they say their god is the one true god and they believe in it just as you believe in the same thing.

    The Left and Islam are united in hate for the US and Israel…AlJazerra promotes Islam as the religion of peace…they have all the time in the world to try and convert disciples to Islam and all the deceptive measure at hand to lie to the American public.  Not surprised it was Al Gore..the so called inventor of the internet..who made bundles off of his Green scams and Socialist beliefs.

    My point exactly Jen!  Bush is a progressive (look at his policies, debt,  spending, new unfunded programs, removal of liberty by TSA, patriot act, etc, etc) and also has this alliance to those that wish to destroy us.  Bush is also on video saying that muslims and Christians/Jews pray to the same God and go to the same heaven.  Oh really?  They have to die for their god to get to heaven. We have the opportunity for eternal life because our God died for us! Not quite the same, is it? Islam is a satanic religion. Not politically correct, I understand. But it happens to be the truth. Study it for yourself.

    Yeah…. our free market. Where the president fires the CEO of GM. Where government  picks winners and losers on wall street, hands chrysler and gm to their union allies while screwing the bondholders,  vows to ban chic fil a restaurants in their cities because they support Biblical values, shuts down and fines businesses for not providing abortion pills to employees, etc., etc., etc. News flash Jen….our market is no longer free. Hasn’t been for some time.

  • jen

    I didn’t say there was or was not a free market.  Should one believe in a free market, then technically you can sell and buy to foreigners.  My main concern was that the comment was entirely blaming Obama for the sale to al jeerza, yet noone onone in either party has linked obama to this sale or anyone in gov’t or in obama’s administration.
    yes, al gore is tied to obama as even republicans are tied to obama as both parties work together and go hand in hand and cannot be separated.
    yes, obama is bad, but republicans are just as bad.  perhaps repub are a tad bit less bad, but they support obama and the diff b/w the two parties is minute and insignificant.

    first of all, don’t use “christians/jews” as they are entirely separate religions.  you don’t see jews saying jews/christians, but they just identify themselves as jewish or in judaism, not judeo-christianity.
    yes, i don’t agree with islam – so we are on the same page.  my point is that obama and bush both have those radical ties and progressive record.

    Wrong, just wrong.  You, apparently, don’t know any Jews or you would not have made such a TOTALLY ignorant statement as “Jews and Christians are entirely separate religions and don’t view themselves as Judeo-Christian.”

    First off, Jews and Christians are NOT entirely separate religions.  Without Jews, there would NOT be Christians.  They worship the same EXACT God.  They both even believe in Jesus Christ, just differently.  In fact, the ONLY thing Jews and Christians disagree on really, the ONLY thing, is where Jesus Christ is concerned.  Other than that, they essentially hold the same beliefs.

    And where do you even get off saying that they don’t consider themselves as Judeo-Christians?  The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews with people like the JEWISH Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein beg to differ.  He identifies himself as a Judeo-Christian.  Try your outright lie elsewhere where people are actually stupid enough to fall for it, please.
