Who was Teddy Roosevelt and why do progressives love him so much?

“Is it a coincidence that we have the two frontrunners are Obama and Newt Gingrich? Tea Party members, you have to decide where do you stand on progressivism? Where do you stand on this? Are you a Theodore Roosevelt Republican? Because if you are, may history forget that you were my countrymen. New Nationalism.” Glenn said.

Glenn said that the speech and new nationalism was exactly what Michelle Obama was talking about when she said “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices, we are going to have to change our conversation, we're going to have to change our traditions, our history.”

Glenn read several passages from his book “Arguing with Idiots” to explain exactly who Theodore Roosevelt was and what he believed.

"I stand for the Square Deal, but when I say that I'm for the Square Deal, I mean not merely that I stand for fair play under the present rules of the game but I stand for having those rules changed so as to work for a more substantial equality of opportunity and reward for equally good service." – page 218

And what did Obama say yesterday?

“ I believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot. When everyone does their fair share. When everyone plays by the same rules,” Obama said.

“Mr. President, you're not playing by the same rules! You're not playing by the rules. Neither are any of your cronies in the White House. George Soros is not playing by the same rules. GE is not playing by the same rules. The Fed is not playing by the rules. No one is playing by the rules, Mr. President. No one,” Glenn said.

How about this one from Roosevelt?

“We grudge no man a fortune in civil life if it is honorably obtained and well used. It is not enough that it should have been gained without doing damage to the community. We should permit it to be gained only so long as the gaining represents benefit to the community,” p. 218 and 219

“Progressives like Roosevelt on the surface seem to defend capitalism. That's what people are saying about Barack Obama on the left: He's defending cap no, he's not. But there's almost always a big "if" attached to the rhetoric. In Roosevelt's case, saying that someone can make boatloads of cash if they obtain it honorably is one thing. You can at least make the case that he meant lawfully. But if their wealth is well used, what does that mean?” Glenn said.

“Our founders believed and I believe that man is fundamentally flawed every single generation and every single one of us. Fundamentally flawed. Natural man is the enemy of God. It is up to us to make the individual choices to be better, to pull ourselves out of the mud. That's what we do, pull yourself out of the mud. Not progressives. No. Not progressives. Man makes progress. As time goes on, he becomes more and more enlightened and it's just these slugs back here who are holding us back,” Glenn said.

Glenn continued to read from “Arguing with Idiots”: “You can have property so long as the greater good doesn't require the government take or regulate. Government controls your business. Government controls your money. Government controls your property. Government controls your life. As most conservatives understand, creating and implementing progressive government programs to solve problems only leads to more government control.”

“America, you got a choice: Communism the fast way, communism the slow way. You got a choice. If you look at those two candidates, there's your choice. Now, I happen to look at the founders. I happen to think that the progressive movement, since before the turn of last century, was wrong, dead wrong. Dead wrong. That's what I believe. You want to go that way? You have a good time. I ain't joining you on it. I don't know what's wrong with people,” Glenn said.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
