Donald Trump: Free speech foolish, shut down the internet

Following the deadly terror attack in San Bernardino, Donald Trump commanded the media spotlight after releasing a statement that all Muslims should be banned from entering the U.S.

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on," a campaign press release said.

In his latest media bonanza, Trump suggested Bill Gates close the internet "in some way," saying people who ask about freedom of speech are foolish.

"We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some way. Somebody will say, 'Oh, freedom of speech. Freedom of speech.' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people."

Pat and Stu, in for Glenn while he's traveling, had a few things to say on the issue.

Listen to an excerpt below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

PAT: I don't know. This -- this Trump thing is just -- it's phenomenal. We're going to play some audio for you that is even more genius than -- than anything else he's said, I think.

STU: Is that possible?

PAT: I'm not sure. I'm not sure. Well, let me just play this for you. Let me just -- you tell me how genius this is. Is this smarter than anything else he's said or is it just top five?

DONALD: And we have to do something. We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some way. Somebody will say, "Oh, freedom of speech. Freedom of speech." These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people.

PAT: Foolish people who is freedom of speech, freedom of speech. You're foolish. Don't say that. Yes, there's a Constitution and a First Amendment that guarantees your freedom of speech, but you're foolish for saying that.

STU: Look, George Washington, foolish people.

DONALD: We have a lot of foolish people. We've got to maybe do something with the internet because they are recruiting by the thousands.

(laughter)

PAT: I mean...

STU: I'm sorry. Does Bill Gates have some sort of switch? If you go to Bill Gates and say, hey, we want to shut down the Internet in certain areas, can he just do it?

PAT: Parts of it. Yeah, I think he can.

STU: Okay. Because I was not aware of that.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah, Microsoft controls the internet. You didn't know. Everything is routed right through Seattle.

STU: Is it through Microsoft or just Bill Gates' house?

PAT: No, you're right. It's not Microsoft. It's Bill Gates' house.

STU: It's Bill Gates -- and the people who say freedom of speech, freedom of speech, are foolish people.

PAT: Those are foolish people.

STU: Man, I don't know what else to say. I mean, the guy never has a moment of thought about what the Constitution says. If that's what you want as a president, obviously there's a party that's been delivering this for white a long time, it's called the Democrat Party. They're the party that doesn't look at the Constitution and doesn't care what it says. This is reminiscent of another Republican candidate for president who said...

LINDSEY: Free speech is a great idea. But we're in a war.

PAT: Isn't that the same mentality?

STU: That is. Lindsey Graham.

PAT: It's a great idea. I mean, free speech is a great idea. But, I mean, we're in a war. Can't have it now.

STU: At least Graham acknowledges it's a great idea. To Trump it's like, freedom of speech, freedom of speech, these are foolish people.

PAT: Well, we talked about this yesterday. He doesn't care about the Constitution. If he even knows about it, he doesn't care.

STU: No. Never a moment of thought goes into what it does. What it's supposed to restrict the government from doing. I mean, you think you want that as a president of the United States, a guy who will do this stuff? Think about this, all of these crazy proposals that come out from Donald Trump, what do they always have in common? They make the government more powerful. That's what you want as a Republican nominee? Go ahead. But, I mean, that's insanity.

PAT: I think so too. But you can't get the Trump supporters to listen to any of this. They -- they're impervious to it.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
