Bottom up, top down revolution

Who has the President’s ear nowadays? Is it the Senate? His cabinet? No, it appears to be union boss Richard Trumka. Glenn gave his reaction to some shocking audio from Trumka on radio this morning.

“Just remember what we told you about a year ago.  That he was creating a new structure.  And we told you that this is what, I think it was Caesar Augustus did, that he would leave all of the trappings but they wouldn't, they wouldn't work.  They didn't do anything.  He left the Senate.  He left all the trappings of the republic, but it changed,” Glenn explained.

MSNBC is reporting that Obama may be following the same path as Augustus.

“Just to set this up, it's a discussion of Obama on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell about how many times he has spoken in the last two years to some of his cabinet members,” Pat explained.

“It doesn't really surprise me.  I've been talking for a while about why doesn't the president use cabinet officials.  You report that in fact there were a half a dozen cabinet members who had not heard from the president personally, had not got a phone call or had an opportunity to be one on one with him in the first two years,” Andrea Mitchell said in the audio.

“And this person said, I've talked, I've had individual meetings with all the cabinet members.  And he was shocked to hear that a number of them, he said half a dozen of them, have never had a single phone call from the president in the first two years up to that point,” her guest said, adding “That is a pretty dramatic thing because it tells you not only was the president not listening to people outside the administration, he wasn't even listening to senior members of the administration.  He was really only listening to a very small group of people.”

Glenn said, “You see the MSNBC saying he's not even meeting with the cabinet.  So who is he meeting with?  And it goes into this:  New audio from Richard Trumka.”

Richard Trumka was asked, “How often is the White House meeting with you, having conversations with you?”

“I am at the White House a couple of times a week, two, three times a week,” Trumka responded. “ I have conversations every day with someone in the White House.”

“You have to see his body language, the arrogance when he begins to respond is incomprehensible,” Glenn said of Trumka.

“The President has not met with his cabinet, but he meets with Richard Trumka,” Glenn lamented.

“What is it that they are doing with Richard Trumka every single day?  Start again with MSNBC.  MSNBC reporting that they've talked to half a dozen cabinet members who in two years have not received as much as a phone call from the president.  This is his real cabinet, the unions.  The radicals and the communists,” Glenn said.

“If this isn't evidence of top down, bottom up revolution, or bottom up, top down revolution, I don't know what is.  You get the people in the top to be a part of the ‑‑ they're revolutionaries, and you put them in the top.  Revolutionaries.  They're there.  We've seen them to you.  Revolutionaries, in the White House.  In our government.”

“Bottom up, that's what Richard Trumka's doing right now.  That is what's happening in Wisconsin, it's what's happening all over the country.  Bottom up.  Rise up.  And the top will come down because they will recognize that the people have spoken!”

“It goes back to exactly, the video that we showed you over the summer where they were giving advice to these organizations.  All the leftists that are marching now, give the president a reason to do what he wants and knows he has to do.  Give him the reason where he must do it.  That is what is happening.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
