There are a ton of movies about to open - one of them is Exodus

Glenn ran down some of the many movies set to release and surprisingly many of them seem very promising. The big dilemma, however, is of course whether or not to attend the movie Exodus. On the one hand it’s great that Hollywood made a film centering around a key Biblical figure. On the other hand we know what Hollywood does to Biblical movies (see: Noah). Will Glenn see it?

PAT: Good morning and afternoon to you. Or evening if —

GLENN: Good morning.

PAT: Like the old Truman Show thing. Good morning and good afternoon, good evening and good night in case I don't see you. Remember that?

GLENN: Thanks for bringing that memory back. That was beautiful. I saw the Stephen Hawking movie last night.

PAT: Oh, yeah, how was that? It looks good. I'm not sure what that means.

GLENN: Really good. Really good.

PAT: It was a good movie?

GLENN: Yeah. The guy who plays Stephen Hawking is brilliant.

PAT: He looks a lot like him.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. That's not something you want people to say. You know what?

You look like Stephen Hawking. Thank you. Thank you very much.

(laughing).

JEFFY: Might be a good thing from a strip club, though, because I know Stephen used to —

GLENN: They ever.

PAT: Now, see, I didn't know that part —

GLENN: Yeah, and they handled that very delicately.

PAT: Did they?

GLENN: He's part of this. He helped with this movie. And I — doesn't necessarily make him look like a good guy. But the first part of it, the first 45 minutes, beautiful love story. Just beautiful love story. And then Stephen, you know, gets a trach and — and shortly before that he's kind of bad to his wife in a way. She has committed — you know, they said, like two years. They only have two years to live. This is 1965. Two years max.

PAT: Yeah, nobody — prior survived that for — like he has.

GLENN: Correct. So no —

PAT: Had they?

GLENN: No. He's not supposed to survive. She is a God-fearing woman. She loves him. Really loves him. And so decides, I'm going to get married anyway and I'll carry that burden for two years because I love him. She does everything. Well, they have children. And children and more children. I think they have four. Three or four. And so here she is as a mom in the '60s, in the early '70 s . He's an invalid. She's carrying him to the bathroom, she's carrying him to the bed. Everything else. She's getting him dressed every day, brushing his teeth, pushing him around.

PAT: And is she like, I thought you were going to die. What is this?

GLENN: Surprisingly —

PAT: She's not like that? Okay, good.

GLENN: So it's 1978, 1980. And she still doesn't have any help. And she's like, Stephen, I've got to have help. And —

PAT: Not from him but fire somebody.

GLENN: Hire somebody.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And he said no, we're a normal family. No, we're not a normal fame. I don't know if you know this, but I have to carry you to go poopy on the pottie.

PAT: Is that a correct quote?

GLENN: No, it's not. So he's kind of a jerk. But you understand it up to a point. And then — and then he gets this speech therapist after this heartwrenching scene with his I wife, just heartwrenching scene. And then he gets a speech that's rightist and she start reading him "Penthouse" magazine and they go all perverted. -- it's weird. It's really, really weird. And I'm a fan of Steve hocking but it doesn't make him look good. I don't think. You'll like the first part. If you see this movie, you'll like the first part, it's a beautiful love story. But you'll walk out — he's an atheist and in the end at "The Brief History of Time," this would verify the existence of God or give God his rightful place or something like that. And he has since recanted that. But she comes this and she's like, wait a minute, you believe — you're recognizing God?

PAT: Yeah, I thought he had done that.

GLENN: Yeah, he did. In brief history of time, he recognizes God. And she said, and she starts getting all teary-eyed and he says, however — and she says, you're not gonna take this moment from me, are you? And he just kind of looks at her and he says, you're welcome. And so that was a nice touching thing. But then it just kind of goes to hell in a hand basket. You're kind of like, oh, so the 72-year-old creepy dude is alone now. Okay, honey, let's go and have a good time.

PAT: One of those kind of movies.

GLENN: That —

PAT: Leaves you feeling yicky. GLENN: Yeah. He gives a great speech at the end where if you don't believe in God, what do you believe in and he gives a great speech at the end. But it's not enough to — for me it wasn't enough to make up for — I don't know, the way he treated this remarkable woman. Just a remarkable woman. The first part of it, it's worth seeing I think, because it shows the love of an amazing woman. Just an amazing woman. And you know, at the end when he's breaking up with her, she — he just — he rolls into her, kind of like, you know, this is the way of just trying to hug her. And she's kind of standing with her back to her. She's crying and he rolls into the back of her and he says -- and she turns to him and she said, how many years, and he said, two. Meaning I was only supposed to live two. And she gets down on her knees in his wheelchair and she's sobbing and she's like, I did the best I could, Stephen. I did the best I could. I mean, she's a beautiful woman. Just a wonderful, wonderful woman.

PAT: She's still alive?

GLENN: Yeah. And she's married to the guy who they finally brought in to take care of him, which they didn't have anything —

PAT: Spoiler alert. Spoiler alert.

GLENN: Nobody is going to see the Stephen hocking movie.

JEFF: I think they will.

PAT: It's gotten a lot of hype.

JEFFY: The speech therapist.

GLENN: The guy needs to get an Oscar. He well — he played him so well. And she's great in it, too. It's really a good movie and great performances. But don't expect, you know — I have —

PAT: A happy time.

GLENN: A happy feeling when you leave. At least it didn't for me and Tania. Tania was like I didn't know he was such a pervert. Like yeah, yeah.

PAT: Not good. And it's called "The Theory Of Everything."

GLENN: Everything.

PAT: There's still quite a few really big movies coming out like Exodus and Kings. Is it next week or the week after that? "Exodus, Gods and Kings" is what it's called.

GLENN: I just don't have a good feeling.

PAT: Be careful of that one.

GLENN: Don't have a good feeling about that movie.

PAT: Well, you shouldn't. We talked a little bit last week about the 11-year-old kid who plays God. Snotty 11-year-old. That's how God is presented.

GLENN: As a snotty 11-year-old kid.

PAT: British. He's also British. God wasn't British.

GLENN: Are you sure?

PAT: I'm positive.

GLENN: How are you positive?

PAT: He's American.

GLENN: He's American, okay. Because in the last Ten Commandment movie.

PAT: He has no discernible accent job he has — wait, what? He had an American accent.

PAT: Americans don't have accents. Like me, I don't have an accent.

(laughing).

PAT: It's the rest of the world that has accents.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: That's for them. That's for foreigners.

(laughing).

PAT: Isn't that our attitude?

GLENN: It is, it is. So what's coming up besides God and Kings?

PAT: Next Wednesday I think "The Hobbit" opens. Are you excited about the last one here? No? Are you tired of "The Hobbit"?

GLENN: Looks good.

PAT: It does look good.

GLENN: Here's what I'm tired of. We're doing a — we're doing three movies. It's a three-book series, so three movies in a series. Of course, the last book will be split into seven and a half movies.

PAT: Yeah, that —

GLENN: I'm also sick of it.

PAT: That's right. This isn't the last one —

GLENN: No, I think this is the last one.

PAT: This is the last one. Last year was the first part.

GLENN: No, last year was the second part of the third part.

PAT: Of the third.

GLENN: Of the last book. But come on. Just end the damn thing. All right.

PAT: It's hard when you're making $500 million per movie.

GLENN: I know. Have also self-control.

PAT: It's tough.

GLENN: Peter Jackson, have self-control, please.

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Watch the video below for more details:

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."
