Anthony Weiner: even worse than portrayed

Anthony Weiner stepped down from his office yesterday, and Glenn was more than happy to see him go off into obscurity. But what did Glenn learn from Weiner over the years? Quite a bit as it turned out.

“We're going to have to do without, without one of the most unlikable figures in American political history.  Remember, there is a guy who was capable of being completely unlikable.  Even when he was arguing for healthcare, for 9/11 responders, he was unlikable,” Glenn said.

While Weiner proved himself to be exceptionally arrogant, smarmy, and condescending but it was his ability to lie that put him in a league of his own among the politicians in Washington, DC.

“ He could say anything, look and sound the exact same way.  He could lie to your face, whether you were his wife, his Twitter pic receiver, his constituent, or his enemy, he could do it and believe it.  It didn't matter if he was lying about Goldline or healthcare or his own wiener shots.”

Long time listeners and viewers will remember that Weiner tried to use all of his congressional powers to take down Glenn and his sponsor, Goldline. Weiner said, “But whether it's illegal for Glenn Beck to do it, probably not.  I certainly think it's unethical for them to be having a commentary program that talks about the sky is falling and then those very same commentators are paid advertisers for companies like Goldline.  Glenn Beck and FOX News and others, they should be ashamed of them because frankly, these companies -- it has now been well documented -- are rip offs.”

Glenn pointed out this morning, however, that anyone who listened to Weiner ended up losing out on a lot of money. “ Since that statement, my investment, my personal investment in Goldline, is up 40%.  That's in one year.  What a rip off it has turned out to be.  At the exact same time he was flexing naked in the congressional mirror and sending pictures to girls half his age, he was trying to destroy my business and the business of my clients with lies, half truths, and smears.  He knew that he was lying.  In his congressional report, he cited commentators on message boards as evidence against Goldline, even while the Better Business Bureau was giving them an A plus rating and the exact consumer report, the exact consumer reporting site that he was referring to was saying you can be completely confident, safe and secure, when doing business with Goldline.  Got it?  He's citing it and that's what it says.”

But what was scariest about Weiner was his ability to simultaneously lie while at the same time feeding his own narcissism. “In the middle of a controversy that could crush his career, his family and his marriage, his wife, by the way, is pregnant, he was psychotically giving back-handed compliments to the size of his own manhood on national television, while acting like he's being self-deprecating.  It is a loop of mental gymnastics only achieved by the mental patients and serial killers we normally lock up,” Glenn said.

“I want you to know, this is a man who tried to destroy my business.  He used the full weight and power of the United States Congress to destroy my business.  I don't feel bad for him.  He did this to himself,” Glenn explained.

Ultimately, however, it was Weiner’s attacks on Glenn that inspired him to start building a news and information system based around the truth. “He's not an enemy of mine.  He's an enemy of the truth.  In many ways Weiner inspired The Blaze, because I found hope that the truth will set you free and if you're not standing within the truth, it will burn your life to the ground.  That blaze is true and I testify to its truth today.  The truth has no agenda.  When you realize that, you'll be able to do what I did, let go, let go in the faith and the firm reliance of divine providence.”

“But we should learn something else, that when you stand for the truth, when you don't let anger force you into stupidity, eventually the ship will right itself.  You just have to remain standing.  The people attacking you with lies will be buried under their own weight.  I believe in this.  It has been true for all of eternity in the past and all eternity in the future.  In a small way, in the time in all eternity, in a very small way, with a little man, even smaller than his stature, a little man named Weiner has proved that true.”

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
