Media ignores story of economic terrorism

The media has failed to report on the breaking story of a blueprint of economic terrorism laid out Stephen Lerner, a former leader at SEIU. Nevertheless, Congressman Jason Chaffetz has responded to the plan.

Glenn read his letter to Eric Holder on radio this morning:

To the honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr., attorney general, Department of Justice

Dear Attorney General Holder, recent media reports suggesting that the former director of the Service Employees International Union, SEIU, banking and finance campaign has threatened to seriously endanger the welfare of the United States.

In a forum at Pace University earlier this month, Stephen Lerner, the former SEIU official, revealed a secret plan, quoting, to cause, quoting, a new financial crisis, still quoting, destroy J.P. Morgan, and weaken Wall Street's grip on power, end quote by, quoting, using civil disobedience, to create the conditions necessary for redistribution of wealth and a change in government, end quote.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, defines terrorism as the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.  The escalation of Mr. Lerner's threats would clearly constitute domestic terrorism and pose substantial harm to the American people and the economy.  I am therefore requesting that you investigate Mr. Lerner's terrorist plans and notify me how the Department of Justice plans to respond to these threats.

The committee on oversight and government reform is the principle oversight committee of the House of Representatives and may at any time investigate any matter as set forth in House Rule 10.

The attachment to this letter provides additional information about responding to the committee's request.  Any questions, call me at this number.

Thanks for your matter, Jason Chaffetz

“I got a call from, or an e‑mail from somebody, a friend of mine in Idaho that said he gave it to one of the members on the banking and finance committee as well and they are looking into it.  I will tell you that citizen journalism is a very dangerous thing.  It is a very good thing and it will in the end I believe save the country,” Glenn said.

“You cannot play the games and discredit yourself.  You must be honest in all of your business dealings.  You must be honest,” Glenn warned of dishonest citizen journalism.

Glenn said that since the media is not doing their job, you must make your congressman and senator aware of this story. “ You can find it at TheBlaze.com.  There are updates there.  And you can find it at Business Insider as well.  They covered it and they covered it really well,” Glenn said of the few sites that were covering the story.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

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.
