Glenn lays out Grover Norquist's spooky connections to the Muslim Brotherhood

UPDATE: After initially declining to come on the show, Grover Norquist has now said he will come on 'The Glenn Beck Program'. Glenn is taking down the paywall and opening up TheBlaze TV to anyone who wants to watch - online or on your mobile device - for free at 5pm ET.

Original Story:

Grover Norquist has brushed off claims from conservative critics before - but this time he's not getting off so easy. On Wednesday night, Glenn presented the facts on Norquist's disturbing ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic extremists. Is he an 'agent of influence'? You decide.

"There are many who claim that Grover Norquist is really kind of the right’s version of George Soros without all the money. He is really a power player who has managed to use his influence to evade any real scrutiny over his dangerous connections. That’s why tonight and tomorrow’s show are necessary," Glenn said.

"Politicians listen to him. Many obey him. He has a long list of connections with radical Islamic organizations and in some cases actual terrorists. Others, not just Frank Gaffney, who was on my program, radio program, and we’re not including Frank Gaffney on this program tonight because we went and did our own homework. We wanted to find out ourselves. We called people ourselves. We did our own homework," he said.

Here are just some of the connections Glenn and his team found.

Who is Grover Norquist?

"Well, first of all, we know that he’s a Harvard grad. He’s really, really quite brilliant. He’s politically minded, wanted to be in politics since he was a youth. Even though he believes in the small business and the free market, he skipped, he has no private sector experience at all, and he was the co-architect of the Bush wins," Glenn said. "He led Muslim outreach after 9/11 with Bush. "

"He has weekly D.C. meetings with the top conservatives because he wields an awful lot of power. He is very, very influential. He also founded something called the American Tax Reform Institute in 1985. This is where you get the pledge, that tax pledge that is signed by most Republicans. He is the guy who has really bulldozed and helped get George W. Bush elected in 1999, and he is big on outreach."

What has he done?

"Now, what has he done? Well, he is extremely influential in the GOP circles, and the important thing is to know where the money goes, so does Norquist. With the cost of winning elections skyrocketing, it makes him extremely important, so people play ball with him. So, what has he created? Well, we know he’s created this foundation, and this is really important. About 90% of all Republicans signed his tax pledge, and it’s a good thing, but he’s also created this, the Islamic Institute, which is trying to support the free market within Islam."

"That’s a good goal until you start to see how this thing has come together."

Who does Grover Norquist trust?

1) Karl Rove and the Koch brothers

"Karl Rove gave $26 million to[Norquist's] tax organization in 2012, and here it is, for something called social welfare, $26 million from Karl Rove and the Koch brothers. The other donor the Koch brothers, they are the primary funders of Norquist’s budget for this."

"Okay, is that a good thing? Sure, all right, whatever, because even if you are on the left and you want really high taxes, there’s nothing seemingly nefarious going on here. Okay, because of this, he holds those high-profile conservative groups in his hands, and he threatens his power to campaign against anybody who doesn’t play by his rules. But what other alliances is he making?"

2) Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi

"This guy is extremely disturbing, al-Amoudi. You might have heard his name before. He was once held up as a moderate Muslim. He founded the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in 1981, and that is the mosque that [the Tsarnaev brothers] came from, you know, the radical marathon bombers."

"In 1993, after the World Trade Center bombing, he campaigned on behalf of Mohammed Salameh, who was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. In 1994, al-Amoudi also denied that Hamas was a terrorist organization."

"He declared support for radical Hamas leader, Marzouk, saying, and I quote, 'I have known Musa Abu Marzuk before, and I really consider him to be from among the best people in the Islamic movement.' Feds caught him expressing frustration that no Americans died in 1998 in the U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya. He recommended more operations be conducted there."

"In 2000, he stood across from the White House voicing support for terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah. "

"He declared support for radical Hamas leader, Marzouk, saying, and I quote, “I have known Musa Abu Marzuk before, and I really consider him to be from among the best people in the Islamic movement.” Feds caught him expressing frustration that no Americans died in 1998 in the U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya. He recommended more operations be conducted there."

"In 2000, he stood across from the White House voicing support for terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah."

3) Khaled Saffuri

"Now, the next one on the board is Khaled Saffuri. Who is that? Well, he is al-Amoudi’s right-hand man. He was a deputy at the American Muslim Council, one of the Brotherhood front organizations. He was founder of the Islamic Institute. He was very influential in the Bush administration. He led talks with the administration in opposition of Operation Green Quest, which we’ll talk a little bit about later. That was basically trying to go get the front groups. He didn’t want that to happen."

"Karl Rove tapped him for Muslim outreach. He voiced displeasure after the decision to shut down the Holy Land Foundation for funding Hamas. So, after the trial and they were proven to be a terrorist front group, he was upset at that decision."

4) Sami Al-Arian

" Then we go to Sami Al-Arian. I think everybody pretty much knows who he is, former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, former professor at USF, campaigned against secret evidence method. He was caught soliciting donations for a Palestinian terrorist to kill an Israeli Jew. He paid respects to 'the march of the martyrs and to the river of blood that gushes forth and does not extinguish.' I don’t know about you, but I want to hang out with him. He also said, 'Let us damn America to death.'"

5) Suhail Khan

"Then we go to Suhail Khan. Suhail Khan is probably the cleanest of Grover Norquist’s friends. He campaigned against the DOJ’s secret evidence. His parents are really the trouble spot. They were prominent leaders in the Brotherhood front groups. At the annual award at ISNA, it is given every year in his father’s name. The mosque founded by his dad hosted the Blind Sheikh just a couple of months before he bombed the World Trade Center. He has a network of terror friendly organizations, and he made it possible for Osama bin Laden’s number two, Al-Zawahiri, to actually covertly visit the United States undetected in 1995. He played a key role in founding CAIR. He was praised by al-Amoudi at an award ceremony."

6) Jamal al-Barzinji

"This one is Jamal al-Barzinji. He is the founder, the founding father, he’s the George Washington of the Muslim Brotherhood of the U.S. He played a crucial role in creating and organizing the web of Brotherhood front groups that followed, ISNA, Muslim American Society, IIIT. He founded the radical mosque in Virginia. He’s known for ties to Islamic terrorists from Hamas to Al Qaeda. He’s officer of SAAR Foundation which is suspected of funding terrorist groups."

What does it mean?

"I don’t know what Grover’s motivations are for working with people that range from Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer all the way to full-blown terrorists. It can only be one of two things, he is the most unlucky and naïve guy next to the President of the United States, and I hope it’s that, because the only other option is that he strongly agrees enough with the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission or they’re just paying him enough cash to subvert America."

"Either way, somebody with this much power inside the Republican Party and inside the NRA with these connections is absolutely unacceptable. No person with any shred of integrity whatsoever would be within the same ZIP Code of some of these people, let alone at the same office or exchanging money with them. So far, the explanations given for the connections are completely unacceptable as well."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
