"Delusional ravings"? Glenn hits back at critics who ignored warnings of Muslim Brotherhood ascension

Update: Tonight on GBTV, Glenn went into depth on the people in the media who got the story on the Muslim Brotherhood right and the overwhelming number of people on both the right and the left who got it wrong. You can get those details HERE

When news broke of the Muslim Brotherhood winning the presidency in Egypt over the weekend, viewers and listeners of The Glenn Beck Program probably weren’t too surprised. After all, Glenn has been warning about Islamic extremists rising to power in the Middle East ever since the Arab Spring first grew to national attention in late January of 2011. Unfortunately, the mainstream media was way behind the curve on this story, with many on the right and the left criticizing Glenn for thinking that radicals would take control of Egypt.

Take, for instance, Bill Kristol’s infamous statement:

But hysteria is not a sign of health. When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.

Nor is it a sign of health when other American conservatives are so fearful of a popular awakening that they side with the dictator against the democrats. Rather, it’s a sign of fearfulness unworthy of Americans, of short-sightedness uncharacteristic of conservatives, of excuse-making for thuggery unworthy of the American conservative tradition.

Or how about David Brooks who said:

There was an interesting split among the Glenn Beck types, really with delusional ravings about the Caliphate coming back. And I would say the conservative establishment which was, this is a fulfillment of Ronald Reagan's democracy during ‑ there was that interesting split and there were really some fights including between Bill Kristol and Glenn Beck this week….Right, this is wonderful, what are you raving about? It's not the taking over of the Muslim ‑‑and Glenn Beck for the first time began to see a lot of serious conservatives taking on Beck and people like that saying, you know, your theories are whacky.

And, perhaps one of the worst, senior intelligence advisor for the White House James Clapper said:

“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaida as a perversion of Islam.”

Meanwhile, Glenn was one of the only voices warning of the possible problems that could arise from the Arab Spring:

On radio this morning, Glenn took some time to address his critics, taking particular aim at David Brooks.

“Theories are just whacky,” Glenn said after replaying the David Brooks audio from last year.

“They were in Tahrir Square over the weekend just, you know, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar. And the Muslim Brotherhood now has officially taken over in Egypt. But don't worry about it. President Obama says it's all good, it's all good,” he said.

“According to an Arab language report last Tuesday, closed‑door senior‑level Brotherhood confab, the Islamist group intends to get rid of film and ‘artistic heritage.’ That's a quote. They are going to replace police uniforms with Islamic garb and make memorization of Islam's holy book a precondition for advancement in school. The sweeping changes dubbed now the Jazira Plan, will be put into ‑‑ put into place as soon as Dr. Morsi assumes the presidency, this according to a report over in the Middle East this weekend,” Glenn read.

“The first step in the plan is to replace the National Anthem with the so called anthem of the Islamic Caliphate,” he explained. “ Soon followed by the abolition of the ministry of information, replacing it with Islamic media organization whose sole aim will be to publish Islamic heritage only.”

“That's some delusional ranting you just did there,” Stu joked.

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
