SEIU protesters take over bank HQ

While the left will undoubtedly claim that Stephen Lerner and his plot of economic terrorism has nothing to do with them, SEIU continues to use radical tactics to attack economic institutions. The latest shows a group of SEIU protestors infiltrating a bank in Pennsylvania and disrupting business for a portion of the day. Glenn gave his reaction on video this morning, and tied it back to the larger story of the left’s plan for economic collapse.

“What caused the financial collapse last time?  I will tell you that it was many people living beyond their means is one.  But also the forcing of the banks to give loans to people who didn't qualify, to give no interest, no downpayment, no i.d., no proof of a job, give people those loans.  Who did that?  The banks did that.  For what reason?” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

Pat told the audience it was because the bank received pressure from ACORN and SEIU.

“ACORN would go in and disrupt services at the bank and say you have to do these things or we won't leave you alone and you'll never expand.  You'll never get anything from government, et cetera, et cetera,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that it’s the same thing that Lerner is calling for in the transcript of the video, where union members at the federal, state, and county governments should demand that banks renegotiate loans.

And what if the banks don’t cooperate? The protestors will jam their machinery closed, much like they do in the video below:

“They show up.  They shut the bank down and the bank will receive pressure,” Glenn said.

Pat said, “It's pretty amazing and their little dispute has nothing to do with the bank other than the bank President is on the Board of Directors at the medical plaza where they're striking.”

“They're in the lobby chanting to see the bank President who has nothing to do with this.  The person says we will call the police and they continue to chant, respect our vote, respect our vote, and the police are called and the union representative walks out to talk with the police officer.  Saying we don't want to cause any problems here.  You already have! They chant that they'll be back.  And they will,” Pat continued.

“This is the fear and the scare tactics that you are going to see more and more.  Now what they will do is they will cause these scare tactics and they will force the banks, according to this plan outlined.  You'll see it at theblaze.com.  They will force the banks to refinance all of the state loan, all of the county and the banks will not be able to do it.  He says that's the plan,” Glenn said.

“To bring them to the edge of financial collapse because if we can cause enough chaos, if we can bring them to the edge of financial collapse, we can collapse the system and we can cause another financial crisis.”

‘Now who in their right mind thinks another financial crisis is a good thing?  Who thinks that this government is going to be able to survive?  There are anarchists.  There are communists.  There are even people who claim to be patriots.  ‘I want anarchy! We'll take it down!’” Glenn said.

Glenn said that this is just more of the Van Jones “top down, bottom up, inside out” strategy the left want to employ to enact their goals.

“Republican, Democrat, Independent, it doesn't matter,” Glenn said. “That is not what this Republic is.  We are free men that control our own destiny and our own lives.”

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
