The Most Audacious Statement in 500 Years

Vice President Joe Biden recently made the most audacious statement most Americans have heard in 500 years by claiming that the Obama Administration's plan to kill Osama bin Laden was the most audacious decision in the past half a millenium.

Given everything that has happened in the last 500 years, (you know, like the founding of the United States of America), it’s a bit of an understatement to say that Glenn, Pat, and Stu slightly disagreed with the Vice President on his claim.

“It blows away the Normandy invasion,” Pat joked. “It blows away at Inchon when we stopped the Korean War the Korean invasion. Crossing the Delaware was nothing”

The mocking continued as they began listing some of the historic moments that have occurred in the last 500 year: NASA landing on the moon, Ponce D ’Leon discovering the Turks and Caicos Islands, D Day, and countless others.

“Think about what he’s saying here,” Stu said. “The most audacious plan in 500 years was the flip of a coin to kill Osama bin Laden.”

The flip of a coin is how sources that were with the President that night reported the decision was made. “It seems like the easiest decision of all time,” Stu added.

Glenn and Pat brought up the Battle of Normandy, and the countless lives that were lost there.

“Six thousand in a day or something? It was unbelievable slaughter,” Pat said.

Glenn added to Pat’s statement by pointing out that the soldiers all knew that they were probably not going to make it, but they kept going onto the beach, “wave after wave.”

Stu was sure to note that the work the Navy SEALS did killing bin Laden was incredible, but “to decide to send them there was an easy decision.”

Since 9/11 the plan of the United States Military has been to kill Osama bin Laden. “We made that decision ten years ago,” Pat said, adding, “That is the one thing he (Obama) inherited.”

It’s hard to imagine an easier decision for any President would have to make on a matter of national security, than one that was made for him ten years prior to being elected. Glenn pointed out that the destruction that President Obama has done to our economy and our debt in four years is a far more audacious plan, that the one Biden is telling Obama supporters.

“And completely reorganizing the perception of the capitalism, which has been the most successful economic system in the history of the world, and making it sound like it’s been a total abject failure. That’s pretty audacious.” Pat added

Glenn one-upped the Vice President's ridiculous statement with one more example, but this time by pointing out something that they are actually responsible for; “Having J.P. Morgan Chase close down the Vatican’s bank account—that’s audacious.”

 

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
