How do you transform a nation? Nudge, shove, shoot

There is some debate as to whether or not President Obama has provided the ‘hope and change’ he once vowed to restore, but he has followed through on at least one of his promises: the fundamental transformation of America. So how does one go about fundamentally transforming a country? According to Glenn, it involves a series of nudges, shoves, and shoots.

“The president would like to fundamentally transform the United States of America, and this is already happening. I want you to go to TheBlaze.com and see the story ‘Is this America: Parent manhandled, arrested while speaking out against Common Core in a public forum.’ It is one of the most shocking things I have seen, and we've seen a lot, but this is the push cart,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Write this down in your diary and your kids will look at you as a prophet later. Write this down in your diary. This is a road sign. As much as the pushcart was in Tunisia where the guy set himself on fire and I said, ‘Mark this down. This is going to spiral all across the Middle East, it will destabilize it and it will lead to World War III.’ The only thing that hasn't happened yet is the World War III thing, but I believe that starts in Syria. And Syria started because of Egypt, and Egypt started because of the pushcart.”

Glenn explained that the story of the Maryland father, who was arrested after raising questions about the Common Core standards and is now being charged with second degree assault and potentially facing 10 years in prison, is a prime example of how unrecognizable this country has become.

“Now, the fundamental transformation of America and turning us into an absolute recognizable police state, I believe this little incident in Baltimore is the beginning of it,” Glenn continued. “You show me anything that is anything but shocking. Even the crowd, when it started to happen, gasped when they saw the bully this policeman was to this man. It was totally reasonable. And all he's trying to do is stand up and defend his right to a decent education. No one would expect this or accept this from the free market, no one. Only people that can get away with treatment like this are governments. And you are living in a country where maybe 200 million of your fellow citizens are cattle and sheep. I am not cattle. I am not sheep. I won't be treated as such. If this is the way America wants to live their life, you have a good time. I opt out.”

Six years ago, Glenn laid out a plan for the transformation of a nation, and it all centered around one thing: control. If you want to transform the nation, you have to control:

1. Media and Culture.

“Well, they've had that for a long time, from Hollywood, ABC, NBC, CBS, The New York Times, the music – everything is run by the left,” Glenn said.

2. Education

“They're taking that last step now to not only have control of it, they've had control of it forever. But now they no longer care what you even say,” he explained. “Common sense is completely dead. Literally two plus two can equal five, if your kid can explain it on how he got there. And if it's a pretty smart way of getting there, it's not wrong. It's not right, but it's not wrong. Excuse me? Two plus two equals four. It always does. We are literally living in 1984. They are changing the answers to math now.”

3. Banks

“Do they control the banks? You're damn right they do. You're damn right they do. Most importantly, I believe the bank controls us,” Glenn said. “The Federal Reserve. They're destroying what is in your bank. Everything that you've worked hard for, they're destroying it.”

4. Health care

“Medical, do they control it,” Glenn asked. “Not yet. If Ted Cruz has his way, not yet.”

5. Communication

“We know they control communication now. Look at who they're in bed with. The guys from Facebook and Google and everybody,” he said. “How do you think these riots and these revolutions started over in the Middle East? Through Facebook.”

6. Food and Farms

“Do they control food and farms? You talk to a farmer. You see how much they're controlling.”

7. Police and Military

“You think they have control of the police,” Glenn asked. “The Department of Homeland Security is now involved in police business, your local police business all the time. How much money has the government given to our local police so they can have military style weapons, military style tanks. These things are tanks that are driving in our streets.”

8. Jobs

“You control those things and ya got it. Well, they got em,” Glenn said. “Now, they didn't six years ago. They got em now. They had a lot of em, but they didn't have all of em. And I couldn't figure out how you could get things like the military. Well, they've done it.”

So once you gain the necessary control. how do you go about transforming?

“Now, to transform it, you have to have all those things and then you use certain things. You have to use every crisis that comes your way. That's why the president gave this speech yesterday about a transformation of America on gun laws. We need to have fundamental transformation,” Glenn explained. “He used the word ‘transformation’ on the understanding of guns and our gun laws. Then you need to use economic pressure. You want that pressure to be there so that bottom rises up. You use propaganda. Need I remind you that we just legalized propaganda being used by the government on our own people. We just made that legal. Why? Why didn't anybody say anything about it? My gosh, historians are going to rip us apart.”

“Then you use war. Because war is the big one. That's a game changer because if you can make war bad enough, everybody just wants peace in the end and they will take it in any way that they can get it,” he continued. “Then you need to redefine who the enemies are. Are you telling me that that's not happening? We all were clear who Al Qaeda is. Now we're partnering with Al Qaeda, and it's the TEA Party that is the problem. It's the people who are against Common Core that are the radicals.”

“You use behavioral scientists and you figure out with behavioral scientists how to get people to nudge them into – well, that is Cass Sunstein and this President has a team of behavioral scientists. That doesn't seem to bother America anymore. They are treating you like a lab rat,” Glenn concluded. “That's how they're treating you. That's how they look at you. And it all boils down to nudge, shove, and then shoot. First they nudge you. They put the carrots toward the front and the French Fries in the back. And then when you won't do what they ask you to do, then they just shove you. That's what happened, and this is a really big change.”

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
