MSNBC is the best thing that ever happened to conservatism

As much as MSNBC may drive Glenn, Pat, and Stu crazy, there's no denying it's quite possibly one of the greatest things to ever happen to the conservative movement. Chris Matthews, in particular, makes some of the most nonsensical statements of all-time almost daily. If that doesn't expose the world (or their 10 viewers) to the idiocies of the left, what will?

For example, Chris Matthews' only argument against any criticism conservatives give President Obama is racism:

Don't like Obamacare? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't like the way he's handling Libya? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't want to pay hire taxes? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Think unemployment numbers aren't accurate? You guessed it: Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Following a statement by Donald Trump on unemployment numbers, Chris Matthews made one of his most ridiculous statements yet:

"Everything he's done is clean as a whistle. He's never not only broken any law. He's never done anything wrong. The perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it's impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton. There's an ethnic piece to this…Trump says the president is, quote, monkeying with the unemployment numbers. It just keeps going on over and or again."

That must be it -- blatant racism. It can't be that the unemployment numbers are worth taking a better look at, or that, when reporting on them, the media should take into consideration the declining number of people included in the participation rate. It's just racism.

Chris Matthews, of course, hasn't bothered to site any facts that support his claims of racism, aside from the phrase "monkeying the numbers." You'll also notice he hasn't taken a better look at the numbers. He isolates and ridicules -- classic Saul Alinksy.

Matthews was joined in this segment by Jonathan Alter, who made just as ridiculous of a claim about Trump's ridiculous stunt for the president to release his college transcripts.

"I think it's rank racism," Alter claimed. "You know, sometimes people on the right get very upset when people on the left charge racism but, you know, shuck and jive, that's like talking about watermelon, or, you know, talking about Jews are greedy or the Irish are drunk or whatever. These are racist tropes and we need to call them what they are. And I actually think ‑‑ at least implicitly Trump was playing on racism today with his ridiculous stunt demanding Obama's college transcripts."

In other words: when Republicans want to see Barack Obama's sealed college transcripts, it's racism; when the Democrats scrutinize George W. Bush's, it's just good politics.

Watch the full exchange here:

Stu noted that while the argument about the transcripts is ridiculous and not the path to an election victory, he highly doubts anyone thinks the president didn't get good grades.

"But beyond that I would bet you with almost ‑‑ outside of any of the candidates that we've seen recently over the past several elections, the most likely guy to have really good grades with annoyingly liberal college professors is Barack Obama. He said himself he was befriending the Marxist professors," Stu said. "Do you think this guy got bad grades? He didn't get bad grades."

But that's the storyline Matthews and friends are sticking to: that conservatives only want to see them because he's black and could only stay in school because of Affirmative Action.

Ridiculous.

There's absolutely nothing else that could be interesting in the transcripts, like who his teachers were or what classes he took -- it has to be racism.

It's the same argument, over and over again from MSNBC. But that's not how they see it. According to Chris Matthews, if you think they're repeating the same thing over and over again, you're "dead wrong and you're dangerous."

Or at least that's what we think he meant to say. Like the "brilliant" broadcaster that Chris Matthews is, this is what he actually said:

Matthews: "Anybody out there by the way, thinks we're for saying things that's over and over again, and if you think we're saying things, you're dead wrong and you're dangerous."

"MSNBC is the best that I think has ever happened to conservatives," Stu said after hearing that.

"I mean, seriously you could give them credit for at least 10 or 15 of the 65 seats in the last election. That's how much damage they do to the liberal movement. Continue. Stay on the air. Keep going, MSNBC, despite the fact that no one watches, just keep doing what you're doing."

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
