Glenn: Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I have ever seen

During an intense debate on last night’s AC360, Christiane Amanpour exploded on her fellow panelists over the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

TheBlaze reports:

Taking aim at anti-interventionists, the normally very calm Amanpour became visibly agitated and shouted down her fellow talking heads, unleashing on blogger Andrew Sullivan and making an impassioned case for U.S. involvement following the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The initial tension became evident when Sullivan discussed separating emotion from public policy. Breaking her silence, Amanpour made it known that she fiercely disagreed with what her fellow panelists were saying about the complicated international crisis.

“I can barely contain myself at this point. … How many more times do we have to say that weapons of mass destruction were used and as bad as it is to decapitate somebody it is in no means equal?,” she rhetorically asked.

Amanpour went on to talk about the “false moral equivalence” that she feels has overtaken the discussion on Syria. “We can’t use this false moral equivalence about what’s going on right now,” she said. “They tried to do it in the Second World War, they tried to do it in Bosnia, they tried to do it in Rwanda and they tried to do it now. There is no moral equivalence.

Glenn, who first crossed paths with Amanpour during his time at CNN, was appalled to see her try to make the case for going into Syria and, in the process, contradict pretty much everything she’s ever said prior to yesterday.

“So the hapless, discredited and really unwatchable Christiane Amanpour was on CNN last night. She is back with her tail between her legs… She had delusions of grandeur that somebody would actually care what she had to say and she could go on, you know, network television and people would watch and I mean, she's absolutely unwatchable, with anyone with any kind of common sense whatsoever because they know that she is a slanted hack.” Glenn said. “So she suddenly cares about all use of chemical weapons. She suddenly cares about how we must get involved in Syria. There is a reason why I am so unbelievably passionate about this, and she has a reason to be passionate as well.”

Glenn took to Twitter early this morning to express his outrage:

“So here's the thing that I'd like to say about Christiane Amanpour. Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I've ever met, and I've held my tongue since I've worked at CNN, but I'm not going to hold my tongue on her anymore,” Glenn said defiantly. “She is somebody who has a distinct anti‑Israel, anti‑Western approach. And how do I know? Well, let's just say that while we were at CNN, we might have made sure that we could back up our claims in case we ever had to back up our claims. But Christiane was one of the people that was instrumental in making my life a living hell trying to tell the truth about Islamic extremism. We had to go through her stupid Arab or Israeli or whatever her desk was, wherever it was, we had to go through her people and have every single word vetted, of people that were actually teaching people how to hate the Jews on television. We had all the videotapes. We had all the translations, and she made our life a living hell. This woman is so anti‑Western and so anti‑Jew it is remarkable, remarkable that this woman has any credibility at all.”

“Here's what the conversation is really about, Christiane, that you can't seem to understand. Just because you are not for war in Syria doesn't mean you don't care. You want a false equivalence, there it is. I don't care? Of course I care. Can you make people's lives better? Can you do anything to actually help? No. Your kind of help, the kind of help you deliver leads people to the slaughterhouses. See Syria. See Egypt. See Libya. See Tunisia. That's your kind of help,” he continued. “Now, if they happen to start gassing people in Jordan, we have a good guy. We know who the king is. We have a good guy to help. Let's see you get all upset if they start to lob chemical weapons over into Israel. I doubt you say the same thing. You're a fraud.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
