Glenn responds to the Newtown ‘truthers’

With the one month anniversary of the school shooting in Newtown just coming to pass, it appears as though the conspiracy theorists are out in full force. According to TheBlaze, a growing group of people are claiming that the entire tragedy was a government manufactured hoax or that it never happened at all.

Unfortunately, we have come to expect ‘truther’ claims in the wake of inexplicable events (most notably after September 11). And on radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the conspiratorial stories, blaming people’s growing distrust of the government for the trend.

First and foremost, there has been a movement away from the principles of self-regulation and self-governance. The Founders were able to stipulate the rights of the Second Amendment because people understood the power of the gun. There was an understanding that it was something to help defend. Fast forward to today, and our culture has changed dramatically. Our society is no longer guided by those same values.

“Our society is sick. Our families are sick. And they're under attack. The family unit is being destroyed. God, country, family – all of them are under attack,” Glenn said. “Why is this happening? Because we refuse to recognize God, country, family. We refuse to say what my relationship to my family is. What is the importance of my relationship with God? What is my duty, my responsibility to my country? I say, ‘What is my country doing for me,’ instead of ‘What can I do for my country?’”

Furthermore, the meanings of what is the truth and what is a right have become relative because we have moved away from God. “There is no such thing as an inalienable right,” he said. “I have a right to defend myself. How do I know that? Because it happens in nature… You have a right to defend yourself because God gave you that, but there is no inalienable right anymore.”

People are more willing to believe anything because no one is pegged to the truth. There is no universal truth. No natural truth. No natural God. No God's law. “Go find the truth, and then guard it,” Glenn continued. “Because there are a lot of people coming out now who will tell you the ‘truth’ because you don't believe in anything. You don't know who to trust anymore.”

“Here's what happened in Sandy hook,” Glenn said. “He is a madman because he's unstable by birth; because he's on mind altering medications? I don't know, maybe. Because of the combination of the two? I don't know, maybe. Because he was playing these games all the time and he had found himself more and more isolated? I don't know, maybe. I can tell you this: the guns didn't make him do it. The guns were a tool. Guns have saved a lot of people. They're not inherently evil; it's what you decide to do with them.”

“I know he's responsible,” he continued. “What helped play a role? Maybe he's just insane? I don't know. But I can tell you, it wasn't the gun. And it wasn't the government. The government didn't set this kid up. The government didn't coax this kid. The funerals were real. They happened… Those weren’t actors. Those were real, real funerals, and those were real people.”

While the government did not create this situation that is not to say it did not play a role in the aftermath. “Don't consume any of the poison… Because that's exactly what it is,” Glen said. “Here's what the government did do – exploited it. The government is great at not wasting an emergency… They waited and they exploited it. It's not a conspiracy. It is a danger to the Republic.”

"I fear we're going to be so fragmented because no one will trust each other,” Glenn concluded. “If you stand for something true, understand that just like all the people that stood for real truth, you will be totally alone in the end. May God give us all strength to remain standing and remain true.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
