What is a caliphate? Here’s what Glenn said in 2011

Way back in 2011, Glenn began to warn America about the end goal of Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood: the Caliphate. No one wanted to believe that extremists would be working to conquer the Middle East under Islamic rule. The libs in the media called Glenn “crazy” and a “conspiracy theorist”, but flash forward just a few years and no one can deny that the endgame of ISIS is an Islamic State sweeping the Middle East (and beyond)! Here’s what Glenn predicted when the Muslim Brotherhood was first coming to power and the so-called experts mocking him. WARNING: If it happened in 2011, it will more than likely happen again.

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: The reason why we are starting here today on the caliphate is not to hold ourself up, but to ask you this one question: Who is an honest broker of information and why do you watch the news? If you watch the news to figure out what happened today, then you are taking a passive role in what is happening in the world. What is happenin today has already happened. You can't affect it. However, if you watch the news, to try to figure out what is coming our way, so you can be prepared, then you should listen to the people who are giving you the information in advance, not those who are mocking and ridiculing those who are proposing different theories.

Did you notice something missing from the MSNBC clips? You didn't hear any of the hosts mocking any of their guests or correspondents for discussing this idea of a caliphate, which is quite a change of tone for them and the rest of the media, especially considering that when this came out, and any mention of the caliphate in 2011, this is what MSNBC and others in the business were saying about that crazy conspiracy theory?

VOICE: Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity across the street at the Fox news channel, seem to be having a hard time this week.

GLENN: Caliphate. Caliphate.

GLENN: Their plans for North America, we showed you in their own words, that their goals include the transformation of America into an Islamic State. The destruction of the Western World.

VOICE: We call this segment seriously for a reason.

VOICE: This is, I do not use the term lightly, loony toons.

VOICE: Who's behind the sudden overthrow of the Egyptian government? Now, a lot of people point to a generation of young tech savy Egyptians who want a better future for themselves and their children. Simple answer. And sure Occam's razor says the simplest answer is usually correct, but fortunately, Glenn Beck isn't allowed near razors.

GLENN: I'm saying a global caliphate is coming.

VOICE: Yesterday, when we were give you the latest news from Cairo and the White House, Beck was preaching the coming of the caliphate. That's right. Why is Beck selling this fear? Because he doesn't want to deal with the problem at hand.

VOICE: I also think the other thing that's so worrisome, is it its very hard to understand how you undo the disinformation, because you and I can talk about how it's patently ludicrous the caliphate is around the corner, but the people that are watching Fox don't trust you and me, and so it doesn't carry much water and they probably don't trust the "New York Times" or a million other sources that could sort of monsteriously debunk it. How you get outside that relationship, that is the really the hardest nut to crack.

VOICE: Can you imagine how stupid our debates are going to be about foreign policy in this country for the next few months after Fox spent the entire week of the Egypt revolution broadcasting these conspiracy theories?

GLENN: Now, you can't blame MSNBC. They are only being good little soldiers for the president.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
