Glenn asks San Diego to take a stand for women

If you paid any attention to the news cycle during the Presidential election in November, you've heard of the "war on women" that, according to the Democrats, is allegedly being waged by the Republican Party. Unfortunately for the Democrats, their track record on women's issues is nothing shy of abhorrent.

While the GOP has it's own issues with politicians like Mark Sanford, if you take a quick trip down the Democrat's hall of shame you'll run across the likes of Anthony "tweets-his-junk" Weiner, Eliot "client #9" Spitzer, Bill Clinton (no nickname required), Bob "should be in jail" Filner, …should I go on?

One quick look at that list and you should notice one thing. All of these guys either still have power, are praised by the left, or actually have a chance or being elected in a few short months. Is that how the Democrats fight the "war on women"? By electing sexual predators who target women in the workplace to office? Or worse, in the case of San Diego Mayor Filner, stand by him and let him hold office?

This morning on radio, Glenn gave the citizens of San Diego a small tool to fight back: a small, but direct sign that they can hang in the windows of their businesses to send a message directly to Bob Filner and his supporters.

"I made a sign for the people of San Diego, all the businesses in San Diego, and I want to put it up on the web site, so you could print it out if you are in San Diego," Glenn told listeners.

Glenn explained that the women who work in businesses around the city of San Diego should not be subjected to the abuse this man brings upon women.

"I'm not going to send my staff out to San Diego to do anything in San Diego. I don't know why conservatives don't take this stance. I mean, you're accused of a "war on women". Why not stand up for women?  Here's a great way."

This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people from all walks of life.  We also believe it's imperative for people to have standards.  The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment.  We believe women should be treated with with respect.

"We got it. We understand political differences and we're serving everybody with political differences, but we are or not going to serve the mayor because we believe that women should be treated with respect," Glenn added. "Come in and argue that with me. Go ahead, argue that with me."

"It's about that the right starts understanding that the Alinsky tactics — some of them — are okay," Glenn noted. "And one of them is isolation."

And while Glenn has stated that he is against boycotts, he's certainly not against putting your money, or NOT putting your money, where your mouth is.

It's not a bad thing to avoid associating yourself with brands, people, and politicians that stand opposite of your values system.

"We used to have discriminating tastes," Glenn explained. "You see that's what they've done. We used to have discriminating tastes.  We used to say, 'no, don't play with him'."

Glenn explained that the left has flipped the nail on it's head. Labeling those who don't associate with certain lifestyles, organizations, people, political stances, etc. as haters, racists, anti-this or that. The truth is, with most of these groups, it's not that they're standing against something — they're standing for something: their values and their principles.

"They have told us they stand for women, but every time there's a chance to stand for women, every time there's a chance to say 'this guy's a total dirtbag, he is a total dirtbag that does everything he can to demean and harass women,' they don't do anything," Glenn said nothing the prominent figures on the left who have been emboldened by their supporters to remain in the public eye.

"They are not for women," he continued. "A real war on women is the war that happens when nobody's looking. When a man has power over a woman and says 'you know what, honey, you're going to put out right now'. That's the war on women.  And that is being fought every single day by women all across this country, and you know who's condoning it? That's not the conservatives. Who's condoning it as a party, the Democrats and the progressives. Every single time they have stepped up to the plate and had a chance to prove themselves as being for women, for women's rights, and for women not to be abused, they've blown it every time. Why? Because the collective is more important than the individual. They will absolutely stand up and say this woman, this woman was abused. Really? They were abused? Oh, and it's the biggest thing ever, when it serves their political purposes."

When former Missouri Senate Candidate Todd Akin made his ridiculous claims about rape, the Democrats were ready to pounce. They took Todd Akin down, and the GOP was hardly defending his comments. They knew he was out of line. But what about Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, and now, one of the worst, Bob Filner? The only reason these men are so arrogant to think that they can treat women and continue to behave the way they do is because their party emboldens their actions because they like their agenda.

Sure, Spitzer and Weiner both left office briefly, but one quickly was awarded a TV show on CNN and the other in running for Mayor of the most powerful city in the country. They're hardly ashamed.

"San Diego, I'm begging you right now…take a stand for being a better person," Glenn said. "Take a stand for treating women with respect. This has nothing to do with anything other than calling these people out and saying you're frauds. You may not be for women, if it goes against your political stand, but we are. We are."

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.

Dear EV drivers: Think you're safe from soaring gas prices? Think again.

Diesel fuel prices have surged to record levels, adding to already record-high inflation in the U.S. But most Americans don't drive cars that run on diesel, and many have turned to electric vehicles (EVs) to avoid the ever-increasing pain at the pump. So, how would diesel supply shortages — and the resulting sky-high prices — affect you or your budget?

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck explained why every American should be concerned about the rising cost of diesel.

"Diesel fuel is the fuel that powers the economy," Glenn began. "How does that work? Well, let's start over in China. You want something from China, you have to put it onto a big boat, a slow boat from China, and that's powered by diesel.

"Then, it gets to our docks," he continued. "You know all of those big cranes and everything else that take that crap off of the ship and then put it on the ground? Run by diesel. And then the forklifts that come and pick it up and then bring it over to the train, those run on diesel. And then the train, those engines, they run on diesel. And then the trucks that get it halfway across the country from the train where they're picked up again by the forklifts, run by diesel. Then they're put into another truck, also run by diesel."

"I sure hope all the people bragging about their electric cars as gas prices skyrocket have a backup plan for their food too. Because as diesel prices go crazy, so does the price of EVERYTHING," Glenn posted on Twitter.

President Joe Biden said “This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” during a speech from the White House on Wednesday.

BlazeTV host Glenn Beck took to Twitter to respond to Biden's outrageous assertion by sharing 50 incidents of far-left violence from 2016 to 2020.

In addition to those 50 relatively recent incidents, Glenn also brought up a few earlier examples of far-left violence that, no doubt, our president would rather forget.
