Why net neutrality is a terrible idea

The push for net neutrality is on and it is the typical progressive issue. Given a name that sounds fair and logical, what it really boils down to is government giving itself an access point for more regulation, power and money. What will happen if this passes is disastrous - Glenn has more details on radio today.

"This is truly about control. When you look at what they've tried to do, they've tried to take away your guns. They're trying to take away your voice. They need control of the internet. Now, I hope to God they don't it get. I don't know how you get around this. But -- but there are a lot of people on the left and on the right that have bought into this that are good, decent people. They don't know what they're doing -- they don't what an they're doing. God forgive them for they know not what they do. They don't know what they're doing," Glenn said.

"Some of these companies know exactly what they're doing, like Netflix. They know exactly what they're doing and they're doing it because of their own corporate interests."

"I'm telling you, I no longer believe that a man -- this is a big thing for me. I no longer believe a man can chart his own course in the media world. I do not believe that a guy can start with nothing and end up Rupert Murdoch in this nation. You can't do it. There are too many corporate interests. And there's too many legal games that are played."

"You cannot do it. If we lose the internet and the government takes control of the internet, you will not be able to chart your own course online either."

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: Here. You go to -- right now, you can go to GlennBeck.com. And there is a place for you to put your name and your public comment, and you can sign and it goes to the FCC.

PAT: Please do this.

GLENN: You have to have it in, the last day is February 26 is the vote. Say no to the Obama FCC internet takeover.

PAT: Look at the left-wing outlets that are lined up in favor of net neutrality. The center for media justice.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Media Matters. Color of Change.

GLENN: That's Van Jones.

PAT: I mean, on and on. Lesbians for Tech.

STU: They're a great organization. I do like them. Your sexual preference matters a lot in technology. I only want bisexual and transgendered IT people. It's important you go to --

PAT: Thank you. Common Cause. On and on. They're all -- this is just --

GLENN: Yes. This is a big one.

STU: It really is. Think about the arguments we made back in the health care. Back in those days. When we're saying, they're looking to take control of one-sixth of the economy here. Well, the internet is highly intertwined in one hundred percent of the economy.

GLENN: From the people who brought you Obamacare.com. The people who brought you --

PAT: Which cost $2.2 billion. Just for the website.

GLENN: They now say they'll be able to help you navigate the internet and make it better.

STU: How does anyone fall for this? This is inexplicable.

GLENN: I don't know. But listen to me, it's minorly about taxes. They'll come after you with taxes on everything. This is truly about control. When you look at what they've tried to do, they've tried to take away your guns. They're trying to take away your voice. They need control of the internet. Now, I hope to God they don't it get. I don't know how you get around this. But -- but there are a lot of people on the left and on the right that have bought into this that are good, decent people. They don't know what they're doing -- they don't what an they're doing. God forgive them for they know not what they do. They don't know what they're doing.

Some of these companies know exactly what they're doing, like Netflix. They know exactly what they're doing and they're doing it because of their own corporate interests.

PAT: I'd like to boycott them right now.

GLENN: But I can't. I love their service.

PAT: I love them too much.

[laughter]

But they're all over this.

GLENN: I want you to go to GlennBeck.com and sign this petition. They just said in Congress, you know, 30,000 people -- 30,000 people, that's a lot of people to listen to. So far, 16,000 people have signed this petition and sent it in. It's at GlennBeck.com. But we've got to let our voices be heard.

I'm telling you, I no longer believe that a man -- this is a big thing for me. I no longer believe a man can chart his own course in the media world. I do not believe that a guy can start with nothing and end up Rupert Murdoch in this nation. You can't do it. There are too many corporate interests. And there's too many legal games that are played.

You cannot do it. If we lose the internet and the government takes control of the internet, you will not be able to chart your own course online either. That leaves us exactly, where? With a mimeograph machine.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
