‘Hail Satan!’ Pro-abortion activists celebrate evil at TX rally

This morning, Glenn opened the radio show with a rundown of the news-of-the-day that leaves you wondering what has happened to this country. From the Director of National Intelligence blatantly lying to Congress to pro-abortion protestors in Austin chanting “Hail Satan,” these stories are sure to make you shake your head in disgust.

  • TX Abortion supporters chant ‘Hail Satan’

In a truly despicable story, the abortion battle in Texas was still raging Tuesday as both abortion supporters and pro-life activists flooded the State Capitol in Austin to make their voices heard.

As TheBlaze reported, one of the more bizarre tactics used by pro-abortion activists involved chanting “Hail Satan!” to harass a pro-life crowd as they sang “Amazing Grace.”

“If you don't know what side you're on right now, if you don't know who you're actually fighting. I've told you before we are not fighting with the president of the United States. We are not fighting with the Democrats,” Glenn said. “We are fighting evil, and if you don't believe me, yesterday in Austin the governor decided that he was going to call for a special session. So now all the protestors are there in front of Austin… standing there in front of the capitol building in Austin and people are singing Amazing Grace. The pro death people are chanting things like ‘Mary should have had an abortion,’ meaning Jesus should never have been born and “Hail Satan.”

“It's really despicable stuff,” Pat added.

“When you can have a group of people chanting around a state capitol Hail Satan’ and nobody seems to care about that, I don't recognize my country anymore,” Glenn said. “I am a man determined to be free.”

  • Clapper to Face Perjury Charges?

Glenn recapped Director of Nation Intelligence James Clappers’ apology to Congress for his “clearly erroneous” testimony in which he said, under oath, that the NSA does not collect data on millions of Americans. Only in Washington D.C. can lying under oath be brushed off as making a mistake.

During a Senate hearing in March, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked Clapper a very pointed question:

WYDEN: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?

CLAPPER: No, sir.

“That's a lie,” Glenn said. “And then he came out and he said, ‘My response was clearly erroneous.’ No. It's a lie. In fact, if I may say, you perjured yourself, you weasel.”

Clapper clearly lied under oath, and considering he was aware of the questions ahead of time, there is really no excuse for his “erroneous” statement. But it’s highly unlikely he will face perjury charges.

“By the way, on the mistake front, too, it's one thing because you could say, ‘Well, it was a mistake.’ In the heat of the moment you get a question that's very difficult to answer and you think to yourself, ‘Well, I can't answer this. I'm not sure what to say,’ and you handle it improperly,” Stu said. “But when you know the question is coming in advance and you still say that answer, that's definitely, definitely not a mistake and it’s an outright lie. And honestly, when you know in advance, it's completely perjury. It's perjury.”

  • HHS to delay Obamacare “employer mandate”

Next, Glenn moved on to the shocking report from the Treasury Department that the implementation of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act would be delayed until 2015… conveniently after the 2014 midterm elections.

“Now, they're delaying this until after the next election. Now, they've already delayed the first time it went through. We had to wait until we passed it to see what was in it. Then we saw what was in it, but nobody really pays any attention because they delayed that implementation until the last presidential election was over,” Glenn explained. “Now they're delaying it until the next congressional election is over. They're going to keep delaying this until this party is out of power. And then it will all kick in. And the American people will say, ‘What the hell happened?’ And you know what? It's too late to fix it.”

  • CA Student told to remove Christian cross necklace

A 19-year-old California college student, Audrey Jarvis, was told to either hide or remove her Christian cross necklace after arriving to work for an on-campus job at Sonoma State University.

TheBlaze reports:

Audrey Jarvis, a 19-year-old liberal arts major, was in for a surprise last month when she arrived to her campus job wearing a cross necklace around her neck. Why, you ask? This personal decision to wear a Christian pendant was met with a troubling reaction from her boss at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California.

While she was working at the Associated Students Productions, a student orientation event, her supervisor told her to remove the necklace and said that it might offend incoming freshman. And if once weren’t enough, she was reportedly asked a second time to conceal the cross, with her boss giving an ultimatum to either hide it under her shirt or take it off entirely, Fox News reports.

“She was wearing a cross around her neck,” Glenn explained. “Her boss gave her an ultimatum: You either then hide it under your shirt or take it off entirely. The necklace was not allowed under the chancellor's rules, and wearing it would potentially offend attendees and make them feel unwelcome.”

“If you don't know what's happening in our country,” Glenn continued, “I've got news for ya: If your preacher isn't talking about what's happening in this country every Sunday… get the hell out of that church.”

  • Michelle Obama refers to White House as a “really nice prison”

Finally, Glenn couldn’t pass up the latest story out of the Obama’s African adventure. This time, it was First Lady Michelle Obama putting her foot in her mouth when she referred to living in the White House as a “really nice prison.”

We already know the First Lady is rarely proud of her country, but now it seems like she isn’t proud or grateful for the position of prominence her family currently assumes.

“When this president's wife who shall not be named without a $20 fine, when this president's wife says she feels like the White House is a prison… my wife stood next to me and she said, ‘Why is that? Because she can't go exactly where she wants without security? Is that it?’ And my wife said that after my security detail had just told my children and I had just talked to my children about, ‘Okay, guys. Security. You can't be running around. You've got to listen to security.’ They are just like, ‘Dad.’ ‘If they say something, you do it,’” Glenn explained.

“You live in the White House,” he continued. “They stop all planes for your plane. You haven't stopped at a traffic light in five years. Don't tell me about this prison you're in. Cry me another river, Lady Macbeth.”

“I say we set them both free,” Pat quipped. “Let them out of that prison… Free the Obamas! And that was worth 20 bucks!”

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
