Wait, what did Glenn say on radio this morning?!

This morning on radio, Glenn, Pat, and Stu were discussing a case of a woman who was held outside her house while police awaited a search warrant, all because her son defended the use of marijuana. Glenn has been a long time libertarian leaning conservative, but has consistently shied away from arguments such as the legalization of hard core drugs.

During today's discussion, Glenn seemed to be reconsidering his stance on the legalization of marijuana. What was the reason behind Glenn's reconsideration? Glenn brought up how the legalization of the drug would end police officers from using it as a "go to" reason to search your car, or hold someone outside of their house while police officers obtained a search warrant. Glenn said, "All they have to say is, I thought I smelled it. If your windows are closed, they can't say that. If your windows are open, all they can say is, I swear to you, I thought I smelled dope. As soon as they say, I thought I smelled marijuana, they can rifle through your car. They can throw you up against the hood of the car. They can do all of it."

Both Pat and Stu were a bit shocked by Glenn's reconsideration on this topic. Pat strongly disagreed with Glenn, saying the true issue is "not whether marijuana is legal. I think the problem is the oppressive agency of CPS or DCF." While Glenn did agree with Pat, it does raise some questions. Could the legalization of marijuana change or elminiate some of the police overreach we are constantly seeing?

Rough Transcript Below:

STU: So did the kid say, look, I think it's safe. My mom used it.

PAT: It doesn't really say.

GLENN: It doesn't matter! It doesn't matter.

PAT: He just defended marijuana.

GLENN: He's using his first amendment to speak out and the fricking spies at the school decides my kid is in trouble because they're with that person. Oh, my gosh.

STU: Especially when -- in a situation where you're encouraging the child to make his best arguments in favor of a mythical argument. You're requiring him to be part of.

GLENN: Let's say, it's an antidrug presentation. Let's just say he was sitting in the bleachers and he was like, pot is dope! Let's just say he's saying that.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: You still don't call the Department of Children and Families.

STU: Even if he said pot is dope, my mom has some at home. Does that allow -- even at that point --

GLENN: No. Here's what happens. You call the mom. And say, hey, mom, your mom son was screaming pot's dope and mom smokes it all the time. And you have an adult conversation. You have an actual human being to human being conversation. And then if you're like, you know what, I think this lady is a drug lord. Then you call.

PAT: It's pretty bad. Because CPS or DCF or whatever they call it in Kansas has almost unlimited power. Once they're involved, there's almost nothing you can do.

JEFFY: We're seeing that everywhere.

PAT: You're almost powerless against them.

GLENN: I'm about to go all Libertarian.

STU: You're about to go all Libertarian up in here?

GLENN: What's up, my cracker?

I'm about to go all Libertarian. I'm about to cross the rubicon on this. Legalize marijuana. Legalize it.

PAT: Yeah, I'm not there yet.

GLENN: You will be. You will be.

PAT: No, I'm not. I won't ever be there.

STU: This is a firsty for you.

PAT: You will die. You will be --

GLENN: The way to stop this is legalize it.

STU: Well, they would do it with the next drug.

GLENN: Oh, come on. Stop it. Stop it. People drink liquor over in Italy. At four years old, you're drinking a glass of wine. And the alcoholism rates are nothing like ours.

STU: I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying is going to stop. What I'm saying is there will still be these situations where police officers do these -- I don't think it solves all this, as you said. But I think it probably cuts down on it quite a bit. Right?

It might encourage other things.

PAT: I think the problem here is not whether marijuana is legal. I think the problem is the oppressive agency of CPS or DCF.

GLENN: I agree with that.

PAT: And some police agencies that get out of control and become all authoritarian on you for no apparent reason.

GLENN: But do you know why when you're approached at a -- you know, at a blockade, why they say don't open your car window? Talk to the police officer from -- behind the glass. Do you know why? We've talked about it --

PAT: Because they can smell.

GLENN: They're sampling the air. We know they're sampling the air. Okay?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But the other reason is because all they have to say is, I thought I smelled it. If your windows are closed, they can't say that. If your windows are open, all they can say is, I swear to you, I thought I smelled dope. As soon as they say, I thought I smelled marijuana, they can rifle through your car. They can throw you up against the hood of the car. They can do all of it.

PAT: Well, I don't have anything wrong in my car. There's nothing going on. I don't care if they go through my car. That's the attitude --

GLENN: Thank you, Lindsey Graham, for dropping by.

PAT: That is the attitude. I don't care. Go ahead. What are you doing wrong in your car that you care if they go through it.

GLENN: Go ahead. Let them access my phone camera. What do I care? So what they're watching me these really icky disgusting porno tapes that I would be making unbeknownst to me.

STU: Hold on. I think we need to focus here for a moment. Because what's happened here is a major -- I would say a major national development. I would say it's a very big newsworthy event if that's what you're doing. If Glenn Beck is coming out on national radio saying he's now in favor of marijuana legalization for recreational use. That is, I would say, a news story. Is that what's happening right now?

GLENN: You're making me decide?

STU: Well, I thought we should. If you throw it out like this, we'll get everybody speculating on what you supposedly believe.

GLENN: I think I am. I think I am.

PAT: I think you might want to reconsider. And then re, re, reconsider your reconsideration.

GLENN: I'd like you to reconsider.

PAT: I've considered it. I'm done.

GLENN: And I double down on your reconsideration. I challenge your consideration.

PAT: I don't think that's the answer. I don't think legalization of marijuana is the answer here.

GLENN: Well, I don't think the time that is wasted on mari-fricking-juana, man.

STU: Well, it's certainly not a good reason to make it legal, to solve this situation or situations like it. There's a much larger issue going on here obviously. It's not just police officers doing things that are wrong. I mean, there's much more to the drug trade.

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.

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."
