STU: Lifelock, yeah.
PAT: You did Lifelock, but I love Goldline as well. Are you doing Goldline now?
GLENN: I did a commercial earlier this morning. All right, Ben Smith has an article out now. Goldline girds for Weiner assault. Now, that’s just —
PAT: What do you mean Weiner assault?
GLENN: That’s just one of the best headlines of all time. Forget Goldman. Listen to this. Forget Goldman. New York representative Anthony Weiner.
PAT: I take that seriously. It’s a Weiner assault.
GLENN: It’s a Weiner assault.
GLENN: Forget Goldline. Weiner is shooting a bit lower in the finance food chain going after gold dealers. His latest target, Goldline, which has made its name profiling with the help of conservative talkers, made its money off of fees for buying and selling gold against public anxiety. A representative of the company has just circulated this e mail this afternoon. Tomorrow, May 18th, Congressman Weiner will either be having a press conference and sending out press releases that will involve Goldline International and Glenn Beck. Congressman Weiner will also be going after other conservative supporters that endorse Goldline. We are not sure exactly what Weiner will be saying, but we know that it will not be favorable to either Goldline or the conservative personalities that support Goldline.
STU: You think?
PAT: What a Weiner.
GLENN: This is incredible. This is incredible. This is again another arm of this administration coming out to try to shut me down. This is absolutely incredible. Is there anybody that is going to say anything in the press at any time if you stand up against this White House? They have three, count them, three advisors of this president that have launched official campaigns boycotting my sponsors! Any sponsor that stays with me, now they are targeting through — you want to talk about the McCarthy era! Look at what this country is becoming! Is there anyone, anyone that has the courage to stand up against these monsters? Look at what they are doing! It’s incredible! Incredible.
PAT: Kind of took the edge off the Weiner thing.
GLENN: No, you can go back to it.
STU: There’s still a Weiner assault going on. Don’t worry.
PAT: (Laughing). You know, I would, I would have to say —
GLENN: Don’t you wish his first name wasn’t Anthony but Richard so it would be Dick Weiner?
STU: This is not —
PAT: This is not —
STU: Not really where we needed to go on the program.
GLENN: Come on.
STU: It’s a happy place to go.
GLENN: Oh, seriously, Mr. Representative Weiner. We’re going to — no, we’re going to take this.
STU: Is he —
GLENN: We believe that you are really operating in the best interest of the American people.
STU: Of course. That’s all he’s thinking about!
PAT: Of course he is.
STU: Hasn’t even considered that it might shut up conservative voices!
GLENN: No one, no one — everybody wants to call me Joe McCarthy. I’m a private citizen! I do not have the power of the state behind me. I’m a private citizen. Now the congress is launching an investigation or a smear campaign after they can’t take my sponsors out through White House sponsored, White House — I’m telling you, the White — are you really telling me that the, one of the political and spiritual advisors for Barack Obama did not tell Barack Obama that he was leading a campaign against me with Christians? Why? For social justice. Why is he doing it for social justice? I’ll tell you. Tonight I’m spending a whole hour on it. Because the White House has now taken their religious, what do you call that thing, the —
PAT: Faith based initiative.
GLENN: Faith based initiative that everybody had a problem with under George W. Bush. And he has merged it with the EPA. And if your church gets on board and helps sell cap and trade and global warming, it will be easier for your church to get loans. What? What? All in the name of social, economic, and environmental justice. That’s why they targeted me and tried to get the Christian community and the faith based community to turn on me, to discredit me. Because I was ahead of the curve and told you, look out; they are coming for your church. They are doing it. We announced it yesterday after the White House announced it. Are you telling me that Jim Wallis, there’s no coordination with his campaign against me and the White House? Are you really expecting me to believe that Van Jones’ organizations is completely — there’s nobody in the White House that knows his organization led a boycott against me for seven straight months? Are you telling me that Andy Stern’s SEIU is running a campaign against me but no one at the White House knows that SEIU is doing that? No one. There’s no coordination there? And now we have Weiner coming out for a Weiner assault on my advertisers and me?
STU: Can’t help it.
STU: I really thought I was going to get through that one.
GLENN: This is unbelievable.
STU: Glenn, all you have is you have three administration officials leading boycotts and a liberal congressman now doing a boycott on a specific sponsor, but they have —
GLENN: No, no. No, no. Not a boycott.
STU: Right. Targeting you with the law, sorry.
GLENN: Now they are — the weight of the congress Joe McCarthy is coming after.
STU: But what I’m saying is you have that evidence on your side, sure, but on their side they have — they just passed that freedom of the press thing. So I mean, they are not targeting the press. They just passed freedom of the press!
PAT: Sure, sure.
STU: That sounds awesome.
PAT: You’ve got to wonder, too, when they do this, when they go on this witch hunt, will they also try to shut down Newsweek, L.A. Times, Denver Post, New York Times, CNBC, the Christian Science Monitor, will it shut all those organizations down as well because they advertise in those.
GLENN: I’m really interested to see how I’m bilking, how I’m bilking people. I’m really interested to see because I personally — because this is what they’re saying, that I’m playing on fear and trying to get people to buy. I personally, personally have more than 10% of my savings in gold.
STU: Well, to your benefit. The gold — since you started talking about gold, it’s up over 50%. I’ve never seen anyone get bilked out of a 50% — your getting bilked by getting 50% gain? That one’s a new one.
GLENN: I have no idea. I have no idea. It is fascinating to me. If my people that do financial advising — because I’m worth — you don’t listen to me for financial advice and that’s why I’ve said don’t — I buy it not as an investment. I buy it as insurance policy. If my people, my advisors would allow me to buy 50%, I’d have 50% of my savings in gold. But they all say that’s nuts. 10%, no more than 10%, no more than 10%. I think I have 15? 15, maybe 20% of mine in gold. From Goldline. Now, you tell me. If I’m such a scam artist, why would I be scamming myself?
PAT: Oh, you are purposely crashing the dollar.
GLENN: That is what it is. Oh, I’m good, aren’t I?
PAT: Yes, you are. You crash the U.S. dollar and that raises the price of gold.
GLENN: There’s somebody that actually said that.
PAT: That’s pathetic.
GLENN: They tried to make the case that I am purposely trying to craft — me? I have more power than the Fed and the treasury and this president?
GLENN: You’ve got to be kidding me. I think you guys got that one on your own.
STU: I mean, the bottom line is it’s clear that they are targeting the program but, you know, — and this line of thought —
GLENN: The question is —
STU: But I mean, you’ve got to fight back against it. That’s —
GLENN: I know that, and look. I’ll tell ya that the sponsors that we have, they know. They know. A lot of the sponsors that we have, you know, they are just like, "Hey, this is the most effective show on radio or on television. I’m not going anywhere." But they know. They know exactly what we’re dealing with. My question for you is, A, when is somebody else in the press going to stand up because they are going to eat you next, gang. If you ever step out of line, they will eat you. And two, when is the American people going to stand up?
