Newtown Truthers not happy with Glenn Beck

On last night’s show, Glenn took on the conspiracy theorists who claim the massacre that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month was some sort of inside job in attempt to set the record straight.

“Last night we debunked the conspiracy theorists because they are everywhere, and it is important that we know, you know, what the truth is,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's important that you know where the line is. And conspiracy theorists, all they want to do is get you to doubt something. They don't need to convince you. They cause just enough reasonable doubt.”

Needless to say, this small but vocal group of individuals was not particularly happy with Glenn’s debunking of their claims. Comments after the show ranged from people claiming Glenn is towing the government line to posts that he is ignorant to the truth.

“Like others said, if the mainstream media and the government were more honest, there would be no conspiracy theories,” Glenn said. “I quite frankly quit believing anything they said decades ago. You reap what you sow.”

While Glenn by no means trusts the government that is slowly stripping away the rights of the American people, he refuses to cross into the “insane idea” that President George W. Bush planted bombs in the levees to drown the people of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina or that President Bill Clinton and President Bush were responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center.

“I don't believe the media either, but I don't believe crazies on the Internet just because they said it,” Glenn said. “You have to have something that anchors you in reality. Just because you're on the Internet and not part of the mainstream media doesn't make you right. Just because you're in the mainstream media doesn't make you wrong. It's what you report that makes you right or wrong.”

“Yeah, you can't necessarily believe either absolute,” Pat continued. “Just because the government said it doesn't make it true but just because the government said it doesn't necessarily mean it's untrue, either.”

When you think of the amount of people who were involved with or affected in some way by the Sandy Hook shooting, it becomes harder and harder to believe that such a situation could be successfully manipulated by anyone, let alone the government.

“The government is not at the point to where they're killing children,” Glenn said.

“Recognize what you're saying is everybody who was on the fire truck, everybody who was in the paramedics, everybody who's in the hospital, everybody who did the mop up on the floor, everybody who was in the school, all of the children. I mean, it's insane. All of the reporters, anybody who says, ‘No, it's real, it happened,’ you're all in on it.”

The media has tried to paint the ‘Newtown Truthers’ has right-wing crazies, but history shows conspiracy theories are not simply a left-right issue. “And what people now in the media try to paint these conspiracy nuts as right wingers and it's amazing because it's only because of the president, the current president that we have happens to be left,” Stu said. “So they oppose that. They'll always oppose everybody. And it's not a liberal/conservative thing at all.”

Glenn took issue with the fact that anyone who tries to debunk the theories is painted as being “in on it” and part of the government operative. In reality, there are writings from people who have been in government promoting the spread of conspiracy theories.

“We have writings from Cass Sunstein, who talks about conspiracy theories, and he says the government should infiltrate those groups that promote conspiracy theories to be able to push them out even farther,” Glenn said. “I mean, the evidence, you want a conspiracy theory, here's a conspiracy fact: Cass Sunstein, former member of this White House, says that the government has a responsibility and should infiltrate these conspiracy realms and help them, promote it, and bring it out.”

Ultimately, Glenn made it clear that he believes the progressive government may one day be capable of such grand schemes, but we are simply not there yet.

“What you have are progressive steps,” Glenn said. “Those are the absolute killers at the end of the line. And that's what you get to. In revolution that's what you get to at the end of the line. We're not at the end of the line.”

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
