You won't believe the progressive puppeteers behind the Ferguson protesters

The progressive playbook pretty much demands that the left fund activists and radicals and pass it off as good old grassroots organizing. So are you surprised to find out that Islamists, Communists, and anti-American activists are all uniting in Ferguson? And - shock of shocks - George Soros himself has funded groups in Ferguson through his Open Society Foundation. John Cardillo joined Glenn at the chalkboard to lay out all the connections no one else is reporting.

Watch a highlight of this segment below or sign up and watch the full thing on TheBlaze TV.

Glenn: All right, I want to reintroduce you to John Cardillo. He is a Blaze contributor, investigative blogger at JohnCardillo.com, President of PsyID, and we have had him on the show. You’ve been on the show several times, John, and I wanted to talk to you, because we reached out to you because what PsyID does is you look at…you can crunch the numbers on the Internet. You can look at Facebook and Twitter and everything else, and you can find original sources of things. You can find where the fires are burning and who started the fire.

John: Right. That’s a good way to put it, yes.

Glenn: Okay, so my question was radical Islamists, anti-Israel people, Communists, Socialists, will work together to destabilize Europe and the Western world, so now we’re looking at Ferguson. That fits into the Western world, and I wanted to know where is this push coming from, this anti-police push? Because I don’t believe that it’s actually ground, grassroots. So, I asked you to go in and look, who is starting the fire, and boy—

John: It’s interesting, isn’t it?

Glenn: It is.

John: Well, you’re right. It’s the Islamists. It’s the Communists. It’s the anti-Americans, and it’s funded by a guy we all know, George Soros.

Glenn: What a surprise.

John: To the tune of $33 million that we can find.

Glenn: Okay. So, tell me, take me through the chalkboard and show me what you found.

John: Okay, let’s walk through it.

Glenn: You started with the two main guys.

John: Started with two main guys, so the two main guys we started with was a guy named DeRay McKesson and a guy named Shaun King.

Glenn: Can I start here? #BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDontShoot, those are the two things that everybody knows.

John: Everyone knows them, two most predominant hashtags, used quite often by both of these guys. DeRay McKesson is an interesting guy, well-educated guy, Bowdoin graduate. He’s more of what I call third-generation social justice warrior. Let’s call him SJWIII.

Glenn: Okay.

John: So, he’s really vocal on social media, and he’s out there coordinating, conversing with all the usual suspects, now, most often with the sympathetic media, and I picked these four people in particular, Wesley Lowery, Charles Blow, Melissa Harris-Perry, Michael Eric Dyson. They have been about the most forward vocal when it comes to the Ferguson protests, the New York City protests, etc. So, let’s say they are fanning these flames down here. This guy, Shaun King, has become an absolute pro at using GoFundMe and Internet fundraising for the families. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of questions about where the money goes after he raises this money.

Glenn: Okay.

John: There have been some questions about certain families about Haiti earthquake relief all around Shaun King’s Internet fundraising efforts. One lawyer consistently comes out and defends him, but I haven’t seen a real audit done on any of this money, so it’s sort of a he said, she said at this point.

Glenn: Okay.

John: So, as you start digging a little deeper into these guys, some interesting things start to happen. I’m going to pop up to the top and show you how this all sort of connects. As all this stuff came to a head back in November, of all groups, SEIU, and I know you’ve spent a lot of time—

Glenn: I know them quite well.

John: You know them real well. SEIU sends out a press release encouraging everybody…now, I want to back up. You know how all these groups say we’re independent, we don’t work in concert with one another?

Glenn: Yes.

John: SEIU sends out a press release telling everybody to go to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network’s Get Out the Vote rally in Ferguson, Missouri. They even go so far as to link to NAN, the National Action Network, in the press release. So, the press release goes down. Who speaks at the National Action Network conference? Sure, Al Sharpton’s people do, but so does the son of Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam.

Glenn: Wow.

John: In fact, he’s one of the keynote speakers. Let’s go back a little bit again. I find DeRay McKesson Tweeting at the beginning of this with this guy who has been in the news recently. This guy is a guy named John C. Muhammad.

Glenn: This is the guy who’s like in the government, the local government, right?

John: Yes, little town called Upland Park, Missouri, five miles from Ferguson, yeah, 4.8 miles from Ferguson. He called himself a city manager, city administrator. Today I saw him called a city clerk. It really doesn’t matter, because what’s really important about this guy is this guy alleged that it was a false flag, that the KKK shot the police officers in Ferguson.

Glenn: Right.

John: What’s even more interesting about this guy, and here’s where nuance becomes important, he Tweets in concert with Jeff City, @JeffCity NOI, in other words, at Jefferson City, Missouri, Nation of Islam’s official account. That in of itself, coincidental? Well, maybe, maybe not. He’s in the area. We know he’s a member of the Nation of Islam because he promotes a foundation founded by Elijah Muhammad. What became very interesting to me is when I started analyzing speeches Farrakhan recently made, one particularly inflammatory speech, Farrakhan was talking about teaching children how to throw Molotov cocktails at the police.

Glenn: I had heard that speech.

John: You heard that speech? Okay, in that speech, Farrakhan refers to Ferguson mistakenly as Jefferson, which put a light bulb off in my head that the Jeff City chapter of the Nation of Islam coordinating with this guy, why would he make the mistake unless he’s getting reports from that chapter on the unrest in Ferguson? So, now when you start to put all of this together, what starts to shake out becomes pretty scary, because it’s very well-organized in a truly professional political sense. You’ve got the National Action Network which has been incredibly effective as a political and PR wing, typically engaging in shakedown and smear.

Glenn: Uh huh.

John: You’ve got Nation of Islam which appears to be acting as the muscle, because they’re also bringing in elements of the new Black Panther party. You know, Malik Shabazz was one of their guys, Black Panther guy.

Glenn: Right.

John: And you’ve got the SEIU handling all the organization.

Glenn: Holy cow.

John: So, they find the people to get on the buses, National Action Network. They put the muscle to protect the people on the buses, and they actually find the buses and get them from point A to point B. So, now you’ve got a very concerted effort. You’ve got the social justice warriors on social media getting this message out exponentially further than these guys ever could’ve done on their own. Well, something really interesting happened.

Glenn: Okay, let me take a break because I want to hear the something interesting happens. Then I want you to take me to how do you know the 33 million from Soros and then the pro-Palestinian, because that is really playing a very big role. We’ll do that when we come back.

[BREAK]

Glenn: All right, let’s pick it right back up where you were. You said the interesting thing.

John: So, interesting and really quick, in December after that Get Out the Vote little meeting when these guys all spoke, there’s a rally in D.C. DeRay McKesson and his grassroots crew go there thinking they’re going to speak alongside everybody. Well, Al Sharpton says, “Not so fast. You’ve got to pay for VIP access,” because he’s getting a little bit more popular. Sharpton actually called security on these guys on the McKesson 3.0.

Glenn: That’s what’s happening.

John: And literally turns the mic off on the ones that are able to make it to the stage. So, there’s an interesting little rift now developing. Jesse Jackson is sort of hanging out the middle with the Rainbow Push Coalition. He’s…let’s call him a COO type for all of this right now.

Glenn The elder statesman of radicals.

John: Exactly, the elder statesman. Now, we know Soros is funding this because of his tax returns. We can find through two of his foundations. It’s the Open Societies Foundation and Drug Policy Alliance. We can see 33 million going into those that directly trickle down to this.

Glenn: Have you checked anything on Tides Foundation?

John: Not yet.

Glenn: Okay, can you look into that?

John: Certainly.

Glenn: Because the Tides Foundation I bet you has millions. Can you imagine if the Tea Party would have ever, ever, total would have received $33 million, what it could have done? That’s enormous amounts of money.

John: But remember, Glenn, this is 33 million we know of from the hundreds of millions that have come in.

Glenn: From the one guy.

John: From one guy.

Glenn: Yeah.

John: I mean, Tides is on the list. I just couldn’t get to it. The voluminous information, by the time I had to get here to Dallas, I just couldn’t push through it all.

Glenn: Okay.

John: Okay, so now here again for the sinister angle of it all, so we know all these players, all pretty bad guys in their own right. Enter the pro-Palestinian group. Now, you’ve got a journalist, Rania Khalek.

Glenn: From where?

John: She’s just a pro-Palestinian journalist about the world.

Glenn: Okay, freelancer.

John: Yeah, exactly, freelancer. This guy, Bassem Masri, who’s another just sort of agitator, civil unrest kind of guy, pro-Palestinian, and Method Man from the Wu-Tang Clan, which I did not realize had a song back, way back when they were popular called PLO Style.

Glenn: Oh yeah.

John: Yeah, and so she believes that the shots were actually aimed at the protesters, that this is all nonsense.

Glenn: Last week’s shots.

John: Last week’s shots, that those cops were hit by accident. He, like this guy, Muhammad, believes that it was false flag, believes that white supremacists or the KKK shot the cops to blame the protesters. Method Man says, “Too bad, cops. You reap what you sow.” All three of them tie back and say but this is just like the poor Palestinians, meaning all that aggression from those evil Israelis.

Glenn: Zionist evil, Jewish plot.

John: Zionist evil, Jewish plot, and they’re behind this. In reality, what appears to be happening, my law enforcement sources, intelligence sources, feel it’s information and intelligence sharing. They’re learning from what’s going on in Gaza and other places how to create more unrest here, and these guys are learning from them how to take tactics used in the Middle East and bring them to Ferguson.

Glenn: John, how hard was this to find?

John: Not hard to find, a little bit labor-intensive, but it’s out there. It’s out there.

Glenn: Okay, so come on back and have a seat. You have anything else?

John: No.

Glenn: Okay, come on back and have a seat. So, why isn’t anybody doing this?

John: Because they’re afraid to tell the story. They don’t want to tell it. It’s not politically correct. It doesn’t fit the narrative. It’s not a story that they want getting out. You’ve got New York Times and MSNBC on that board. They don’t want to tell that story.

Glenn: And the Washington Post.

John: And the Washington Post, I’m sorry, yes. They don’t want to show that their people are complicit in fanning those little flames down there.

Glenn: Okay, when I was out in Silicon Valley last week, they talked to me about how the world organizations are getting flatter and flatter and flatter. They said it’s really about the connections and how many people you can connect to. That’s what this is. That’s what SEIU, that’s why NAN and SEIU are so important, because they have all of those union people, okay?

John: Thousands and thousands and thousands.

Glenn: So, help me out. What should the average person do? Because the best way, I mean, especially with the way Facebook runs their algorithms. I’ve got people 3 million people on my Facebook page, but I can post this, and maybe only 350,000 of them will actually see this. Even though they like my page, they don’t see everything that I’ve done. So, what I’ve been trying to figure out is how do we get the information out more? How do we spread…those people who like my page, how do they get this information out and how do others make fatter connections?

John: I love Twitter as a tool for that. It’s hitting a broader audience in real time, and it’s hitting it with more frequency. You can constantly get this information out. TheBlaze Twitter is great. I pick up a lot of my news from TheBlaze Twitter, and I can pick up the evolution of a story throughout the day on TheBlaze Twitter. So, I think that’s an outstanding tool. I’m out there. People like myself, people like you, we’re out there Tweeting this all day long, and I think this is where the blogger army comes into play. When you’ve got thousands and thousands of like-minded bloggers each getting those few thousand people that hit their blogs, well, those few thousands turn into tens of millions eventually and if they’ve got a central repository of information like TheBlaze where they can get like-minded information and intelligence.

Glenn: So, for instance, we’re doing The Root special this week, and this week it’s on the armies of Armageddon. It covers kind of what we talked about at the beginning. Or this, I’d like you to go into another studio. We’re just going to take an iPhone and just have you do this yourself. We’ll put it up on our YouTube page, and I’ll Facebook it and everything else, Tweet it out tonight. Is there anything that our audience should do? When they see an important thing, is there anything they should do with those besides like them?

John: Tweet them, save them, Tweet them at you, Tweet them at TheBlaze, Tweet them at the people they know will spread that information, because when I see people out there doing something that they shouldn’t, @FBI, @CIA. Well, they’re not reading that. If you see something that is terror-centric or criminal-centric, make that phone call if you believe it really is, but if it’s something that’s just inflammatory and might imply civil unrest and there’s no imminent criminal threat, get it to a like-minded media personality. Currently you’re the only guy right now.

Glenn: Well, @Breitbart or @Drudge or @FOXNews, @Rush.

John: But FOX hasn’t run this as much as they should, and I’m a little disappointed in the way they’ve…Megyn Kelly’s done a great job.

Glenn: Megyn is really good.

John: Yeah, but some of the others haven’t. Michelle Malkin has done an awesome job.

Glenn: It’s the usual suspects. I mean, it really is the same group of people. Any indication of where this is going next? Any indication that this is gathering steam with anybody who’s real and not in this?

John: Well yeah, I mean, my fear based on the evolution that we’ve seen is that it is not a long leap for ISIS to get involved in this. I mean, you know this. You’ve covered Farrakhan over the years. How many billions did he take from Libya, directly and indirectly? He’s not going to be shy to take money from whoever is backing ISIS and help them get here. One threat…I know we’re short on time, and one thing I tell everyone to watch, prison converts to Islam.

Glenn: Yes.

John: Watch them. They’re a threat.

Glenn: We’ve been talking about that.

John: They’re here. Don’t watch the southern border. Watch prison. Watch parolees, probationers. They hate authority. They hate me and you, and they hate the government. These are dangerous guys to begin with.

Glenn: Okay, will you do me a favor, will you go back and look for the connections on that? I’ll do a whole show with you and also on Tides Foundation.

John: Absolutely.

On the Basis of Sex. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you probably didn't expect those five words to come out of me this morning. No, that's not my version of a clickbait headline to get you to pay attention — although that probably just happened — but this is the title to the new movie based on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

RELATED: Here's the Problem With the New Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary

Progressives and liberals have been hovering over YouTube like a pack of rabid wolves, anxiously awaiting the first trailer to drop. And — three days — they got their wish. Something in the last few seconds caught my ear. Watch:

Now my first thought after hearing that went something like this: The word "freedom" is literally the fifth frigging word in the first sentence of the First Amendment. It shows up for the second time just two sentences later. How do you screw that up? I always assumed that liberal Hollywood movie makers had never really read the Constitution, but this is just sad.

But my second thought was that maybe they don't consider the Bill of Rights actually part of the Constitution. However, according to the National Constitution Center, the Bill of Rights officially became part of the Constitution — not a separate document — when it was ratified in 1791. This is rather easy to fact check, so there's really no excuse here.

But then I had another thought. Either liberal Hollywood forgot that the Constitution changed in 1791, or they actually prefer the vaguer pre-1791 version of the Constitution where God-given rights can be excluded if the state so pleases. Think about it. The Bill of Rights is the single greatest roadblock to the radical Left's "progress." Do you hate the fact that private gun ownership encourages self reliance and personal freedom? Do you also hate the fact that dissenting views, opinions and speech can't be silenced and crushed? Then the Bill of Rights is a clear and present danger to your agenda. It's enemy number one.

The new Left that is radically moving toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791.

You see, the new Left that is radically moving further toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791. They wish it never happened. The Bill of Rights is a constant reminder that some FREEDOMS can't be given by the government, they're granted by GOD. And that thought — you being aware of that — scares the hell out of them.

Now, it's possible I thought too much into this. It's also possible the screen writer made a simple mistake and thought Ruth Bader Ginsburg was actually born before 1791, figuring it would be a nice tip of the hat to her longevity. I can actually see how you could make that mistake. But it's also possible that this is a sign of the times we live in.

The Bill of Rights is under attack, maybe more now than ever. It's never been more important to let the Constitution of 1791 be our guide, true north and lighthouse.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

How did this slip by?

The Left has been foaming at the mouth waiting for this movie to drop and when the trailer finally hit the interwebs, it ended with an embarrassing factual error about the Constitution.

What will happen when the Titan kneels?

You can tell that the NFL season is approaching because you can hear the whining from highly-paid athletes as they prepare their kneepads for some kneeling.

In May, the NFL instated a policy that penalizes players who take a knee during the national anthem.

"A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem," the statement said. "The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem."

Tennessee Titan's defensive end Jurrell Casey has decided that he will continue his whining and kneeling.

"I'm going to take my fine," Casey said in an interview. "It is what it is, I ain't going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do. If they want to have these battles between players and organizations, this is the way it's going to be."

Maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics.

He added that "At the end of the day, we got to do a job, but I will continue to use my platform to keep on speaking up."

Yes, he does have a job to do. And that job is playing football. His bosses have made it clear that political activism is not part of the job. Who knows, maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics. There's also Starbucks. They need a self-righteous CEO.

All anyone can talk about right now is Russia and collusion, and for good reason. Special Counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for cyber attacks and the hacking of cyber-systems in energy, nuclear, water, and manufacturing sectors which you can read about here.

The Trump-Russia scandal, in a word, is maniacal. There are many moving parts that are very hard to solve — or simply don't want to be solved. All of these are "mysteries wrapped in an enigma," asserted Glenn on Wednesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."



From the curious case of Imran Awan to the hacking of DNC servers to "Russian" meddling in elections via social media, all of these deserve scrutiny.

On today's episode, Glenn examined seven scandals that make up the Russia connection:

  1. Russian operatives who used social media to divide Americans during the 2016 election.
  2. The meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
  3. The Fusion GPS Dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
  4. Voter fraud in Illinois.
  5. Hillary Clinton's emails.
  6. Imran Awan. Awan was an IT staffer for Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives who was part of a federal investigation and was arrested on bank fraud charges.
  7. Lastly, the 2016 DNC email leaks.

For the entire explanation, tune into the podcast below:

When it comes to Donald Trump, Glenn Beck argues that there are three tribes that categorize the way people examine him regarding his foreign and domestic policy.

Tribe one is the #Resistance. They are the ones who believe that everything President Trump does is bad. They're also the ones who call for impeachment and who label President Trump a "treasonous traitor" even before a summit with a foreign leader takes place.

RELATED: Russia hacking Hillary's emails is no laughing matter

Those, according to Glenn's analysis, include groups like Think Progress, who published an article suggesting that women's rights would be rolled back if the President's SCOTUS nominee is confirmed by the Senate. This tribe also includes progressive talking heads and far Left publications and politicians like The New York Times and Hillary Clinton.

Tribe two are those who defend the President and his actions at all costs. He can do no wrong. These are the people who deny the President's mistakes. They believe the President is a master chess player and everyone else is a pawn in Trump's game.

Both who operate in tribes one and two maintain a "win at all costs" mentality. They don't care what happens as long as their side wins. Glenn calls this a "cult of personality madness."

Tribe three are those who are "free thinkers." These people question the President with boldness and aim for intellectual honesty when evaluating the President's policies and behavior.

Glenn believes tribe one and tribe two are smaller than tribe three.

So, what do all these tribes have to do with Trump and the Russians? Find out in the clip below.
