Glenn: "It's when you're in trouble that people begin to see your true character"

Have you ever criticized Vice President Biden or opposed the objections being thrown at Mitt Romney? If you have, according to Biden, you’re a “squealing pig.”

It’s odd that the Democrats constantly seem to be name-calling those who criticize them or, much less, defend themselves against inaccurate accusations. After all, this is the party of “diversity and inclusivity,” isn’t it?

“These are lovers of all opinions, all lifestyles, all choices as valid – Joe Biden is the Vice President of the United States.  He's calling us pigs now.  That's fantastic, isn't it?  He's so inclusive,” Glenn said. “Actually it is fantastic, because it shows their desperation.  It shows who they really are.”

But that's not who Americans are.

The true character of a person is hard to see when things are going well for them. But in times of desperation, that’s when you see who a person really is in their core. When someone finds themselves in trouble their true character can be seen.

“We don't have to worry about the name calling nonsense because name calling doesn't matter.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but calling me a pig really is ridiculous,” Glenn said.

The more hate, insults, and lies this administration throws at conservatives the more trouble they are in. The White House is showing us what kind of shape they’re really in because there is no validity or substance to the things they are spouting out across the nation about conservatives, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or their policies.

“Heading into the home stretch they've never been questioned, they've never had their back pushed up against the wall, they've never had any of these things happen to them,” Glenn pointed out. “They don't know how to deal with it.”

However, the Tea Party and true conservatives have been under attack since day one – from both parties – first by the Bush administration, then by this one.

“You know who you are,” Glenn told listeners, “and you've known who they are for a long time.”

It’s obvious that the Obama administration is in trouble. But what kind of shape are we in? What kind of shape are Americans in? That’s the question Glenn answered this morning.

“I think we’re in better shape that in any time, since 9/12/2011,” he said. “Do you remember the feeling of unity and resolve that we had?”

9/12 is a day that all Americans remember – a day America came together no matter the differences that were between them.

“People are beginning to come together. We used to care about each other. On that day we did literally care about each other. We turned to God. We had a common goal and purpose. That's what Americans always do in a time of crisis:  We come together.  We've come together.  We've turned to God,” Glenn said.

As Americans look ahead and see the challenges that lie ahead, it’s clear that we are at a crossroads.

“We're looking at the choices carefully and we're choosing the paths that lead us back to the road the founders put us on, at least many of us are,” Glenn noted. “Not everybody.  Admittedly there's a chasm in America.”

As divided as the country may seem, the overwhelming majority of Americans generally stand on the same side of the major issues.

“Don't forget every poll, every single one done over the course of years has shown that conservatives outnumber liberals at least two to one, and a full 79% of Americans are not liberals,” Glenn reminded listeners.

Liberals may act like they are in the overwhelming majority, but they’re not – it’s not even close. This is why they’ve worked to influence and gain control of the mainstream media, and why they alienate and ridicule those bold enough to speak out against them.

They want you to feel alone. You’re not.

Internal polling is showing that if the election were held today, Mitt Romney would win. While a lot can change in the next two months, more and more people are waking up and coming together to get this country back on track.

“This doesn't mean that we're not going to face some hard times,” Glenn told listeners.

There are still a lot of challenges ahead, and Glenn pointed out that many of us are already seeing it at the grocery store.

The point Glenn is making, however, is that Americans will come together and we will make it through the challenges that lie ahead. For the last few years, Glenn has been telling people that his audience will lead the way towards restoring America.

“You're part of the group that will save the nation. We will hold it together, Glenn told the audience.

“You will be a shelter from the storm. You will be a blessing to your neighbor, to your family, to your state and to your country, because you've done the hard work. You know what we're facing.  We're facing freedom, real freedom that will come at a cost, or slavery – free stuff.  The good news is there's a lot of Americans that have had their fill of the free stuff promised because they see the freedoms going away, and more importantly, they also know you can't keep paying for this free stuff:  it won't work.  It never does.”

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."

On the heels of the Seattle City Council's vehement support for cutting the police department by 50%, the council's next plan is to abolish prisons, municipal courts, and ultimately the entire criminal justice system, according to several documents leaked from the King County Executive's Office in Seattle.

The documents, which read like a critical race theory paper or a far-left diversity training pamphlet, detail a plan that has apparently been years in the making. They argue America's criminal justice system is a "white supremacist institution" that must be dismantled entirely.

Christopher Rufo, editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Wealth and Poverty, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to reveal exactly how and why city leaders plan to abolish the foundational institutions responsible for catching and prosecuting crime, including police departments, jails, prisons, and court systems.

"This is a document that comes from the King County's executive office, and it really provides the theoretical basis for the executive's plan to completely and permanently shut down the largest jail, with no plans to replace it," Rufo said of the first document. "It has a kind of chart and a pyramid that says that ... the things that are foundational to the justice system in Seattle, and in the United States, is white racism, white supremacy, white fragility, and a whole lot of other theories with the kind of the buzzwords that have been circulating lately."

The documents go on to claim that crimes committed by "People of Color" are not the fault of the criminal, but the fault of society — specifically white society.

"The logic is, well, if you have a racist society, that in essence forces people, especially people of color, to commit crimes. If you abolish the institutions of the carceral system, if you abolish the jails, if you abolish the police, and the municipal courts, those people will stop offending because their oppression has been lifted," Rufo explained.

"I mean, it's absurd! It doesn't work in practice at all. And it gets the causality so skewed it's hard to even understand on logical grounds. But this is the kind of pseudo-scientific, pseudo-academic nonsense that is driving the decision making at the highest levels of government in Seattle, in Portland, in New York, and elsewhere. It's really shocking because they're really boiling down a very complex social problem, crime, to just, 'white people are evil and they set up these evil institutions that force people to do wrong.' And their solution is not reform at this point. For many years, it was about criminal justice reform. They've moved well beyond that, in very rapid succession, to do criminal justice abolition."

Despite being just about the most isolated family in America for the past several months, Glenn Beck's entire family caught COVID-19 — all except for his two grandkids and himself, that is. Fortunately for them, it was no worse than having a "bad cold with a fever."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn shared what the experience has been like so far, the medicines his doctor has prescribed, and why he believes everyone will eventually catch this virus.

Acting Deputy Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, Ken Cuccinelli, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday. He came prepared to expose the leftist lies and detail the truth about what's really going on with federal agents in Portland, Oregon.

Cuccinelli made it clear that claims of federal agents in unmarked cars " kidnapping" Portland protesters from the streets are patently false. Rather, agents are protecting federal buildings in a lawful, safe, and constitutional manner.

"There are four federal agencies [in Portland] protecting the federal property. Three of them are from the Department of Homeland Security. The U.S. Marshals is the fourth, they guard the inside of the courthouse," explained Cuccinelli.

He went on to explain that a little known division of the DHS, called the Federal Protective Service, protects thousands of federal properties across the country, and has been protecting the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in downtown Portland since it was built in 1997.

"This is not a new mission. It's a 24/7, 365 mission. We've been there from the beginning of this courthouse being built, and the birth of the Department of Homeland Security," Cuccinelli said.

"Our officers have bravely and resolutely done their duty and done their job to protect their facilities and people using them, and each other, of course," he continued. "And with respect to the cars, we do use unmarked cars. I almost laughed when I heard [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi making this 'accusation.' Maybe she should check the San Francisco Police Department. You will find that every single law enforcement agency of any size in America uses unmarked vehicles, because they're safer for the officers and they're more effective for the mission. And we're not grabbing people off the street. The only people that we detain are people that match descriptions of offenders or who were just caught in the act."
