Congratulations Ed Schultz! We knew MSNBC wouldn't give up on you

Here at the Glenn Beck Program, we think it's important to recognize success. When someone does a good job, they deserve to have it pointed out. So we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate Ed Schultz's move from the dead-end, ratings black hole known as MSNBC primetime and has graduated to the BIG TIME: MSNBC's expanded weekend line-up. Congrats, Ed.

Here's what the big guy had to say:

And in the big finish tonight, a big personal and professional announcement. MSNBC will be expanding its weekend programming and this opens a big opportunity for “The Ed Show” and my brand. I will be leaving this time slot at 8 pm ET and moving to Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 7 pm.

I raised my hand for this assignment for a number of personal and professional reasons. My fight on “The Ed Show” has been for the workers and the middle class. This new time slot will give me the opportunity to produce and focus on stories that I care about and are important to American families and American workers.

"Isn't that truth?  You can't get to those people week nights in primetime. You only hit them on the Saturday and Sunday nights.  That's when the real audiences, the much much smaller audience, you can connect with them better," Pat said.

Using Ed's mind-bending revelation that a smaller audience in a worse time slot is somehow better, Glenn couldn't believe how his own personal career had actually been going backwards. He was really at his peak when he started off doing late nights on a local station, not now when he's nationally syndicated in a prime time slot.

"Obviously it's a huge step in your career to go from prime time during the week to the weekend.  He wants the intimate venue of weekends," Stu said.

And, of course, there is the huge benefit that this move does for the Ed Schultz brand...whatever that is.

What makes this completely voluntary promotion such a huge story, however, was how rumors of Ed Schultz being booted from MSNBC's prime time lineup were vehemently shot down by the man himself just a few months ago.

Remember when Ed said this?

Gosh, there's a lot going on, isn't there? (laughs) Ed Schultz being replaced at 8 p.m., not so fast! I just want, here's the first thing I want to say -- Brian Stelter, is that his name? Yeah, S-T-E-L-T-E-R. He's never talked to me. And if he were to talk to me, I would tell him that I have overperformed in my time period for the third quarter and on my way to do that in the fourth quarter of this year, which puts me in bonus territory. You know, money? I mean, that's how well we're doing at 8 o'clock. And so I, I, I have never interviewed with the guy, he's never called me or asked me anything. I see that Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, has put out a statement saying that, uh, you know, we're, we're OK!

See, Phil Griffin is clearly so "OK" with the Ed Schultz brand that he's allowed Ed to take this amazing, wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move to the weekends.

We bet Brian Stelter, one of the biggest names in media reporting, is feeling extra embarrassed today about his article. Sure, he was right about Ed leaving 8pm - but he totally missed the real story! He must have just been blinded by the all-encompassing, omnipresent Ed Schultz brand.

Sorry you're haters gotta hate there Ed. You really showed them.

Congratulations.

We'd like to just take a minute and remember some of the highlights of Ed's career:

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

On his TV show Wednesday night, Glenn revealed where Black Lives Matter gets its considerable funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Shortly after this program aired, one of the organizations, Thousand Currents, took down their board of directors page, which featured one of these characters.

Michael Rectenwald, a guest on Glenn's show, pointed out the suspicious change on Twitter.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
