White House threatens Woodward: You will regret this

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward, the man behind one of the most famous pieces of investigative reporting the world has ever seen, is now saying he has been threatened by a senior White House staffer after reporting (correctly) that President Obama is responsible for the impending sequestration.

“I can’t believe they would go after Woodward,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Remember when I was on Fox, and I said, ‘Who is going to be the next Woodward and Bernstein?’ Turns out, it’s Woodward – except he still refuses to really take a bow.”

During an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday, Woodward explained that the President is displaying a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time” for citing looming budget cuts as his reason for not deploying an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf.

Woodward went on to do an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN later that afternoon, in which he explained the White House is not happy with his characterization of President Obama. Below is an excerpt from the interview:

BLITZER:  Take this behind-the-scenes a little bit, the allegations being hurled against you right now.

WOODWARD:  Well, I mean.

BLITZER:  You're used to this kind of stuff.

WOODWARD:  I am.

BLITZER: Share with our viewers what is going on between you and the White House.

WOODWARD: They're not happy at all and some people kind of said, ‘Look we don't see eye to eye on this.’ They never really said though – afterwards, they said, ‘This is factually wrong,’ and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top White House…

BLITZER:  What was said?

WOODWARD:  It was said very clearly, ‘you will regret doing this.’

BLITZER:  Who said that?

WOODWARD: Well, I'm not going to say.

BLITZER:  Was it a senior person?

WOODWARD:  It was a very senior.  It makes me feel very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, ‘you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in, even though we don’t look at it that way, you look at it that way.’ I think if Barack Obama knew that was part of the communication strategy - let's hope it's not a strategy…

“He hopes it was not a strategy? What do you think, Bob, they've been doing to Fox and people like me,” Glenn asked. “Five boycotts. Five. It's never happened before, in the history of America. This is the guy who found the enemy's list from Nixon. This is the guy who exposed - he should know better than that. I contend he does. Either that or I don't know even know. He's got to know better than that. He’s not a fool.”

POLTICO later identified the senior White House staffer as Obama economic adviser Gene Sperling. It seems as though Woodward and Sperling had a conversation that became very heated, and, in an attempt to smooth things over, Sperling sent Woodward an email in which the “you will regret” this language appeared. You can see the entire email HERE.

While the White House has since come and said that “no threat was intended,” Glenn sees an eerie parallel between what is being said about Woodward in the wake of his comments and what Glenn has dealt with in the past.

“Hang on a second. If they are employing the tactic they have employed on us several times, here's how it happens,” Glenn said. “Look at the names, and see if you can find this pattern so far. You’ll have administration officials. You’ll have Center for American Progress. And you will have George Soros. It won't go any deeper than that yet. But then you'll also have sympathy groups – religious groups and sympathy groups will come out against him. So who do you have so far?”

Stu went on to report that the Administration has commented, in addition to damning articles in The Nation and Huffington Post. Meanwhile, Neera Tanden, president of Center for American Progress, tweeted, “My amateur advice: stop cooperating with Woodward in the first place.”

“Attention Bob Woodward: they're already starting to make you regret,” Glenn concluded. “The White House comes out and says, ‘We’re sorry he read it that way.’ But they're beginning to smear him. They're beginning to make him look like an old man, out of touch, and they are signaling the end of his career. This is the way they do it. They don't come out and whack you in an alley.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
