Is this America’s Sumner moment?

Right now, we're playing out the same patterns that have occurred throughout history: we will follow whoever will give us stability. Time and time again, people have ignored evil and jump through crazy hoops in order to "keep their stuff".

During the radio show today, Glenn told the story of Charles Sumner, an abolitionist Senator who was attacked on the Senate floor by pro-slavery rival Congressman Preston Brooks. Glenn said that Sumner and his allies were the Tea Party of the day.

Brooks only received a fine for the attack and no jail time, and in the South was cheered for his actions. He ended up resigning his seat in the House of Representatives.

Glenn said that back during the Civil War and the end of slavery, the people in the South were willing to do anything in order to maintain their property. As Glenn put it, they would do anything to "keep their stuff".

Today, Glenn said people are doing the same thing. They are being told by the government that if we don't support the rebels in the Syria the region will be destabilized, so people go along with it so they "keep their stuff" and maintain stability.

Glenn said that it doesn't make sense the United States would suddenly find itself at the "red line" with the Syrian government after 98,000 have already been killed in the war because a hundred people were attacked with a chemical weapon.

"Now, I want you to understand, 98,000 people have been killed by Assad. 98,000 people. Why did that happen? That happened because the Middle East went unstable. Why did that happen? Because somebody saw a guy set himself on fire in Tunisia, then they saw a little thing in Egypt happen, the Arab spring, then it went to Algeria and Libya. Then the people in Syria said well, we have a dictator too. Maybe we should stand up, because this is the way of the world," Glenn said.

Glenn warned that the same intelligence people who said Benghazi was a spontaneous uprising resulting from a YouTube video are the same ones saying Syria used chemical weapons.

"They know that it was a YouTube video and we should listen to them and go give arms and send our troops to work with the people who are eating others on the battlefield. Why? Because we want our stuff," Glenn said.

Why did people in the South cheer on Sumner? "Because they wanted their stuff," Glenn said. "People were property. What the argument was in the south was, if you get rid of slaves, we're wiped out economically. We've not nothing economically your life as you know it is over. And so people were willing to jump through any crazy hoops to be able to keep their stuff."

"Man's story always repeats itself. We are repeating it again. We are giving arms to cannibals. Why? Because were being told by our government, our leaders, who we should not trust, we are being told that if this falls apart, then all your stuff a gone."

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:
