Trump Pimps 9/11 as 'New York Values'

We all know what Ted Cruz really meant when he said Donald Trump "embodies New York values" on the Howie Carr Show---and it had nothing to do with 9/11. That didn't stop Donald Trump from using 9/11 in a cheap way during last night's GOP debate in South Carolina.

"For Donald Trump to play that card was a despicable slap in the face to 9/11," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Instead of challenging Cruz's intent---that Donald Trump represents progressive liberal views---the real estate mogul went to the hallowed ground of 9/11.

"The people in New York fought and fought and fought, and we saw more death and even the smell of death, nobody understood it, and it was with us for months---the smell, the air---and we rebuilt downtown Manhattan," said Trump. "And everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved New York and New Yorkers. And I have to tell you that was a very insulting statement that Ted made."

During the debate, Cruz put into context the true intent behind his words.

"There are many, many wonderful, wonderful working men and women in the state of New York," said Cruz. "But everyone understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal, are pro-abortion, are pro-gay marriage, [and] focus around money and the media."

Sensible people know the tragedy of 9/11 has absolutely nothing to do with New York values. However, the mainstream media---who jumped on Rudi Guiliani during the 2008 campaign for using 9/11---have rallied around Trump, crucifying Ted Cruz in the process.

GLENN: Welcome back to the program. Glad you're here. Let me go to Taylor. Hi, Taylor, you're on the Glenn Beck Program. Welcome.

CALLER: Hey, there. I thought Ted Cruz did a marvelous last night. But I want to call out Fox News and people like Andrea Tantaros that tweet out these pictures of the New York firefighters and the flagpole. We all know what Ted Cruz meant. He wasn't bashing first responders with New York values. Everyone knows and knew exactly what he meant. It's just too bad that Fox News has to play into this hand. They know what he meant. I'm on board with you now. I'm dumping Fox News. Total insult at Ted. It was a huge disappointment to see that.

STU: There's a lot of, well, I like New York and Donald likes New York, therefore, as the media I'm going to praise him for that.

PAT: It's so ridiculous. New York elected a communist mayor, that's what he's saying.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: A guy who went and visited and donated to the Sandinistas when we were at war with them in the '80s! Come on. He's a communist.

GLENN: He's a communist. The guy they elected as mayor of New York is a communist, and everybody knows it. And for Donald Trump to play that card was a despicable slap in the face to 9/11.

PAT: Jeez. Are you kidding me? What does 9/11 have to do with the values of -- nothing. Zero.

STU: They're obviously good people in New York. Was Ted Cruz saying there's not good people in New York?

PAT: No.

STU: I'm critical of the way they mourned that tragedy. That's not what Ted Cruz was saying. What he was saying is they're really, really liberal. And it's his way I think of saying that Donald Trump is also really, really liberal without saying it.

GLENN: Everybody knows it. And the fact that the media is all standing behind and saying -- and, Taylor, you're exactly right. That the media is coming out and saying, "Donald Trump is exactly right on it."

PAT: No, he wasn't.

GLENN: They're all praising him. It's because they're all liberal.

STU: In New York.

GLENN: They all think like that in New York. They all think that way in New York. It's really amazing. I don't know who won that one. Because to me, I thought it was shameful. It was -- I can't believe that George Bush would use a picture of him in Air Force One on 9/11. Using that as a -- that's exactly what that was.

PAT: Oh, it's worse.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: He's talking about the smell of death. 9/11 because Ted Cruz brought up the New York attitude. Because he's talking about the people who elect communists. Come on. Oh, man.

GLENN: I would like to see the dial test on that. Because I don't think there's a conservative out there that was on the fence that thought Donald Trump won that.

STU: The media really says he won.

GLENN: The media really loves him on that.

STU: Not only did they attack him and say don't use 9/11, it's absolutely wrong. But they also did it to Rudy Giuliani. Why is the media picking Donald Trump as the one guy who can use 9/11?

GLENN: They hate Ted Cruz.

STU: Exactly.

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.
