How do you transform a nation? Nudge, shove, shoot

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

There is some debate as to whether or not President Obama has provided the ‘hope and change’ he once vowed to restore, but he has followed through on at least one of his promises: the fundamental transformation of America. So how does one go about fundamentally transforming a country? According to Glenn, it involves a series of nudges, shoves, and shoots.

“The president would like to fundamentally transform the United States of America, and this is already happening. I want you to go to and see the story ‘Is this America: Parent manhandled, arrested while speaking out against Common Core in a public forum.’ It is one of the most shocking things I have seen, and we’ve seen a lot, but this is the push cart,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Write this down in your diary and your kids will look at you as a prophet later. Write this down in your diary. This is a road sign. As much as the pushcart was in Tunisia where the guy set himself on fire and I said, ‘Mark this down. This is going to spiral all across the Middle East, it will destabilize it and it will lead to World War III.’ The only thing that hasn’t happened yet is the World War III thing, but I believe that starts in Syria. And Syria started because of Egypt, and Egypt started because of the pushcart.”

Glenn explained that the story of the Maryland father, who was arrested after raising questions about the Common Core standards and is now being charged with second degree assault and potentially facing 10 years in prison, is a prime example of how unrecognizable this country has become.

“Now, the fundamental transformation of America and turning us into an absolute recognizable police state, I believe this little incident in Baltimore is the beginning of it,” Glenn continued. “You show me anything that is anything but shocking. Even the crowd, when it started to happen, gasped when they saw the bully this policeman was to this man. It was totally reasonable. And all he’s trying to do is stand up and defend his right to a decent education. No one would expect this or accept this from the free market, no one. Only people that can get away with treatment like this are governments. And you are living in a country where maybe 200 million of your fellow citizens are cattle and sheep. I am not cattle. I am not sheep. I won’t be treated as such. If this is the way America wants to live their life, you have a good time. I opt out.”

Six years ago, Glenn laid out a plan for the transformation of a nation, and it all centered around one thing: control. If you want to transform the nation, you have to control:

1. Media and Culture.

“Well, they’ve had that for a long time, from Hollywood, ABC, NBC, CBS, The New York Times, the music – everything is run by the left,” Glenn said.

2. Education

“They’re taking that last step now to not only have control of it, they’ve had control of it forever. But now they no longer care what you even say,” he explained. “Common sense is completely dead. Literally two plus two can equal five, if your kid can explain it on how he got there. And if it’s a pretty smart way of getting there, it’s not wrong. It’s not right, but it’s not wrong. Excuse me? Two plus two equals four. It always does. We are literally living in 1984. They are changing the answers to math now.”

3. Banks

“Do they control the banks? You’re damn right they do. You’re damn right they do. Most importantly, I believe the bank controls us,” Glenn said. “The Federal Reserve. They’re destroying what is in your bank. Everything that you’ve worked hard for, they’re destroying it.”

4. Health care

“Medical, do they control it,” Glenn asked. “Not yet. If Ted Cruz has his way, not yet.”

5. Communication

“We know they control communication now. Look at who they’re in bed with. The guys from Facebook and Google and everybody,” he said. “How do you think these riots and these revolutions started over in the Middle East? Through Facebook.”

6. Food and Farms

“Do they control food and farms? You talk to a farmer. You see how much they’re controlling.”

7. Police and Military

“You think they have control of the police,” Glenn asked. “The Department of Homeland Security is now involved in police business, your local police business all the time. How much money has the government given to our local police so they can have military style weapons, military style tanks. These things are tanks that are driving in our streets.”

8. Jobs

“You control those things and ya got it. Well, they got em,” Glenn said. “Now, they didn’t six years ago. They got em now. They had a lot of em, but they didn’t have all of em. And I couldn’t figure out how you could get things like the military. Well, they’ve done it.”

So once you gain the necessary control. how do you go about transforming?

“Now, to transform it, you have to have all those things and then you use certain things. You have to use every crisis that comes your way. That’s why the president gave this speech yesterday about a transformation of America on gun laws. We need to have fundamental transformation,” Glenn explained. “He used the word ‘transformation’ on the understanding of guns and our gun laws. Then you need to use economic pressure. You want that pressure to be there so that bottom rises up. You use propaganda. Need I remind you that we just legalized propaganda being used by the government on our own people. We just made that legal. Why? Why didn’t anybody say anything about it? My gosh, historians are going to rip us apart.”

“Then you use war. Because war is the big one. That’s a game changer because if you can make war bad enough, everybody just wants peace in the end and they will take it in any way that they can get it,” he continued. “Then you need to redefine who the enemies are. Are you telling me that that’s not happening? We all were clear who Al Qaeda is. Now we’re partnering with Al Qaeda, and it’s the TEA Party that is the problem. It’s the people who are against Common Core that are the radicals.”

“You use behavioral scientists and you figure out with behavioral scientists how to get people to nudge them into – well, that is Cass Sunstein and this President has a team of behavioral scientists. That doesn’t seem to bother America anymore. They are treating you like a lab rat,” Glenn concluded. “That’s how they’re treating you. That’s how they look at you. And it all boils down to nudge, shove, and then shoot. First they nudge you. They put the carrots toward the front and the French Fries in the back. And then when you won’t do what they ask you to do, then they just shove you. That’s what happened, and this is a really big change.”

    There are a lot of
    different ways this can go. What people need to be watching right now is
    whether or not we have a government shutdown. Particularly, if it were to occur
    for any lengthy period of time there could be severe domestic ramifications for
    those who are government dependent. I’m sure the progressive Republicans know
    this which is why they are behaving like back stabbing cowards on the issue of defunding
    Obamacare. Amongst domestic strife the Republican party will be blamed and many
    defamed immeasurably. Cowardice or fear is not an excuse to do the wrong thing.
    Those Republicans who are trying to slither the party into power are no better
    than the progressives who are driving this country into the ground. 

    • Pachy Serrano

      Obviously, you have no clue about the ramifications of a Govt. shutdown? It will no only affect regular folks, but also businesses and our military. The Republicans and the tea party allies have been trying to struck down this Law many many times (maybe you know the count), but now they are willing to go to hell and back just to show Obama their weak muscles. This is not about who’s stronger or weaker, but how many lives will be affected by this circus of madness call . . . The GOP and the Tea Baggers!!

        • Gristle McThornbody

          No, not true at all.

          What we don’t see is another conservative ever winning a major election ever again.

      • Karen

        Obviously, you have no clue.  There are certain things that do not shut down (all the entitlements, etc.) in a so-called government shut down because they are certain automatic essential things that will still occur.  Our government has shut down many times over the last several decades and do you remember any long-lasting impact on our nation?  No!!  The last shut down is probably what the pigressives and demoncrats are afraid of because the Republicans won House seats and Senate seats.  I think we would be better off if our federal government WOULD shut down at least 6 months out of the year so we wouldn’t have to worry about all the damage they would be inflicting on our nation for those 6 months.

          • Anonymous

            Um, Bonnie, have you ever heard of the War of Northern Aggression? You might know it as the Civil War. States rights were trampled on then and they’ve been trampled on ever since. The federal government that a group of citizens formed has grown into a giant monster. Unfortunately, states have allowed themselves to feast on the handouts and incentives and I seriously doubt if many state leaders can wrench their legislatures off the government teat. Just look at Common Core, Obamacare, etc.

        I would rather be a Teabagger than a scumbagger there scumbagger ! I shutter to think if Mommy government shuts down how we the people might have to take care of ourselves, the military might run out of bullets, the troops might have to come home, and we can’t fund terrorism in Syria anymore. Oh the horror of it all.  Sleep well there scumbagger !

         You are wrong, they are responding to the millions of us who want them to do away with Obama Care.  Millions of us who have had enough.  So here’s the thing.  The Obamamites will support Obama anyway, the republicans will not get their votes, but they (the republicans, tea partiers, etc are in jeopardy of loosing ours if they don’t act.  We are tired of a do nothing congress worring about the black, Mexican and dye in the wool democrats.  they had better motivate their own party to continue to support them or they will be out, and we will find representatives who will do the people’s will.  Did you watch the video’s of the 1.2 million bikers who descended on DC.  You’ll have to google it because the MSM didn’t say squat about it. It was awesome.!

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So if I get the article gist, in the areas of fundamental transformation and takeover, we are well past the stage of nudge and shove, and into the border of SHOOT.

    So how soon shall we see Obama and the Progressives unleash a massed series of created emergencies concerning the debt-ceiling, the budget, the economy and so much more? Say in the next few weeks? Or maybe even days?

    • Bonnie Somer

      it is already here w/the demonizing of the right and the hate speeches by the left by reid, pelosi, schumer, durbin feinstein all of the liberal progressive left it is here the 1/2 of americans who pay taxes don’t like that the divisive hate that obama spews the AG saying “we must brainwash kids to hate guns ” they want sheep they want slaves to govt control and ultimate power

      We are a Police State, a Police Officer friend of mine has told me that He and The Force Has Been Ordered To Stand Down On: Drugs, Street Violence, Prostitution, Gang Violence, and Domestic Violence, so they are only truly authorized to do Traffic Control/Citations.  His Superiors Said That They Want Things So Bad That The General Public Will Scream Protect Us When Things Get Worse, That They Want To Be Able To Kick Down Any Door Without People Caring Who’s Door It Is (the thing is it will probably be their door and they will not find out until it is too late)…  *Note: Pachy just keep your stupid ideas to yourself because they are non-productive!!!  You don’t UNDERSTAND The TRUTHS Of Today…

    “How do you think all these riots and revolutions started in the Middle East? Through Facebook”

    I guess I don’t know, Glenn.

    By the way, Ted Cruz is absolutely a leftist Canadian Rhodes Scholar deep cover operative we went to infiltrate the GOP and Tea Party to destroy them from within. 

    None of us would have ever imagined he would have been so successful.

    That dad was a wacko

    • John Michael McCauley IV

       Wacko? A FATHER wants to question a radical change in the way and what HIS CHILD is taught in school in a scheduled school board meeting and is arrested and accosted when he tries to do so and HE is the wacko? The rule, “Do not question our actions against you or you will be arrested” does not make one a wacko because he does so. I think you need to re-evaluate.

    We will be heading that way and it really don’t matter which party takes over. Just hope more people will shed their government approved blinders and take a long hard look into reality.

  • Shay Wallace

    I must respond to the gentleman that was arrested by the security at the school board meeting. The gentleman was not correct in how he went about voicing his opinion. I was a member of a school board and I attend school board meetings every month at my children’s school. When boards of directors face difficult decisions, there is usually a lot of emotion involved. The board has to be respectful and do all they can to hear everyone’s opinions. This gentleman was completely out of turn. Did he send in a question that the board refused to address? Get people together to do a recall. Did the board refuse to follow Roberts Rules for open meetings? There are many laws and rules that must be followed and it looked like the gentleman that was against Common Core was upset that the board was following the rules. There are so many other ways to go about getting your voice heard. Interrupting and being defiant at a meeting is not the best way to go.

    I understand frustration with school boards since my kids go to a charter school. I have been very frustrated with the courses of action and other things that our board members have done and voted on at times, but being disrespectful at a public meeting is not the way to go. It will only get people where this gentleman has ended up, in court. Not agreeing is great, but not following the law set in place to keep order in the meeting is not right.

    The lady loudly saying, “Let him speak!” was just instigating the bad decision this gentleman made. Order needs to be followed. What about protests to get the point across? Homeschool? Getting on the board? Letters to the Editor? There are many different ways to voice your opinion that are legal. I hope that this gentleman realizes that what he did was not okay and that he will be a better example of democracy in the future. What would meetings be like if everyone was allowed to get angry whenever they disagreed? I would not want to be there.

    Marching Orders
    When we look upon the world around us, it seems hard to imagine that we will ever see our country return to what it once was. Christians instinctively, and through signs mapped out in
    the Bible, know that the time of the Great Tribulation is fast approaching. Recently someone asked me, “If we know that the tribulation is coming, then why try to fight it, or stop it, if it is destined to happen anyway?”

    The truth is, God did not set dates as to when the “end” is going to come, and He never gave us a time limit on protecting our families, standing firm against evil, and seeking
    justice. No where in the Bible does God ever tell us to “give up.”

    For those of us who have “eyes to see, and ears to hear,” we must remain alert at all times until His coming.

    1Thessalonians 5:4-6 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would
    overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.

    While it is true that we humans cannot win the spiritual war that rages upon the earth,
    nonetheless we are not called away from the battle field until the Lord
    returns for us.

    Psalm 94:6 & 16
    “They slay the widow and the stranger
    And murder the orphans.
    Who will stand up for me against evildoers?
    Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?”

    All of us have a duty to stand strong, defend the innocent, and protect the
    gifts that God has given us, which are family, home, and country.

    Pro 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice,
    But those who seek the LORD understand all things.

    For those who “love God and are called according to His purpose” let us
    continually bear in mind that God is with us through the battle, and
    that no matter what the outcome here on earth, God Himself will be
    victorious and we will share in the celebration for eternity.

    Pro 21:31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle,
    But victory belongs to the LORD.

    The MASTER Government knows that the Slaves (the 48% non complying American’s) cannot all afford diddle – or do not comply / especially, lucky ones w/ self employed jobs barley ‘Volunteering’ Income Tax payments or in collection Phase entire life.

    Enter (same above group) monthly NON Health Care payments and deductible charges , and  what was hidden inside is coming –

    The Obama – Pelosi & Reid Executive branch Policing (Gestapo) collection Force.   (153 private IRS meetings were not just over Tea Party – Voter fraud.)

    Hence, the forced PENALTY TAXATION phase comes into play with 48% of the ‘entire’ POPULATION – Most whom voted for (D) Obama Pelosi and Reid’s.

    This is where the MASTER (D) failed with SS TAXATION (D) FEDERAL INCOME TAXATION and (D) WELFARE TAXATION… you know – in past when 100% controlled DEMOCRAT era’s attacked working bee class and gave away the store to all other’s. 

    This is the BIG act – the fourth corner stone…the one uniting the LOWER & MIDDLE revoltingly filling income Tax  or not (yes, Voluntarily or not)

    BUT what is inside is the 4 th. GIG –  a gigantic sledge hammer & Gestapo collection / Policing force, ran by the Master = Executive branch.

    if, they rig the 2014 vote and or the 48% remain stupid, as dopes, and the 2014 Vote goes Obama e.g., (D) Congress – the Bank Take Over will complete / pass and that my friends is game over.

    I’m too sleepy to fully digest Beck’s latest crackpot rantings, but I just gotta have a laugh at his Number 2 up above, Education. “We are literally living in 1984! They are changing the answers to Math now!” … Jeez.

    It would almost lead one to believe that Mr Beck has never taken a math course beyond perhaps the fifth grade. If he had, he would be well aware that the concept of giving a student partial credit for showing his work, even if the final answer is incorrect, has been standard practice since probably Ancient Greece. It’s really not hard to understand. You have a complex problem, maybe in Calculus or Trig, a student demonstrates that he knows the method for solving it, but screws up on the calculation somewhere and gets the final answer wrong. Of course, you give him partial credit because half of the lesson is learning the method. Big deal.

    But to Beck this is “1984!!!” And he wonders why nobody takes him and his Portents Of Doom seriously. Good heavens.

    I keep hoping this is all a nightmare and I will wake up soon.  Alas, it isn’t.  One thing I have in

    my favor is my age.  Hopefully, I won’t be around long enough to see the complete dismantling

    of America.  It’s like watching something like the Statue of Liberty crumbling a little at a time.

    Or pieces of the Lincoln Monument slowly falling off.   Things looking mighty dismal when

    comparing them to the past.  Have been reading a local publication about the 40th anniversary

    of the film ”American Graffiti.”  They have several articles which incorporate the tag line of

    ”Where were you in ’62?”   One article is entitled ”1962  The Age of Innocence” — and to a

    certain extent it was.  The entertainment industry was much tamer than it is today.  There was

    not all the social media that there is today.  If you wanted to talk to someone, you could actually

    speak to them face to face!  What a concept!  For the most part, schools were still imparting

    education and even if you didn’t like the teacher, one at least, respected his/her position.

    The greater number of homes had two parents in them, probably.  Can’t say for sure, but the

    poverty rate may have been lower then, as well.  Vietnam was barely in the news and few knew

    of anyone involved there.  If one was from a ”typical” middle class family, life was pretty simple

    and, usually, one didn’t mind getting up in the morning and facing a new day.
