SHOCKING NEWS ALERT: Liberal Media Distorts Glenn's Words on Scalia

Someone alert the media because the media have distorted Glenn's words! On second thought, no sense in alerting the already senseless.

In what can only be called the shoddiest of journalism, liberal blogs and the mainstream liberal media have once again twisted and distorted Glenn's words. This time about the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and what it means for the country.

Here are just a few of the headlines spewed by liberal blogs and later picked up by the mainstream liberal media:

Glenn Beck: God had to kill Antonin Scalia to help put Ted Cruz in the White House

Literal Holy Crap: Glenn Beck Says Scalia’s Death Part of God’s Plan to Elect Ted Cruz

Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia to Die to Wake Up Americans to Vote for Cruz

Surely, these reporters fact-checked their source before attributing their outrageous headlines directly to Glenn, right? Wrong, absolutely not. Had they done their homework or cared about reporting with integrity, they would not have written malicious headlines or left out this rather essential quote from Glenn referencing Scalia's passing:

"I don't want to assume that I know His plan." —Glenn Beck, Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program

But really, what more can we expect from liberal bloggers and a corrupt mainstream media that could care less about the truth? (A special shout out to CNN for using the kooky Right Wing Watch as their source. That's some stellar journalism, CNN.)

Context matters, MSM and other liberal news outlets, so here it is:

Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Pat and Stu filled in for Glenn who was in Boston. Pat wondered on air about God's plan in Justice Scalia passing now at this critical time. (FYI, liberal media, the faithful do believe in divine providence and that God has a plan in our lives . . . crazy talk, we know). Glenn called in and offered his thoughts, answering Pat's question:

“I don't want to assume that I know His plan, but I will tell you this. I thought when this happened . . . 'You're welcome, I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, Look how close your liberty is to being lost. You now have lost your liberty. You replace one guy, and you now have a 5-4 decision in the other direction.' Glenn continued, “The Constitution is hanging by a thread. That thread has just been cut. And the only way that we survive now is if we have a true constitutionalist [as president].”

Glenn did not channel the voice of God (listen to the actual audio below and make up your own mind). Nor did he proclaim the passing of a faithful and honest public servant was the handy work of God in order to elect a specific president. (That really would have been news.) Rather, he followed another common Christian principle that with tragedy comes opportunity, and that opportunity is a gift (translation liberal media: making lemonade out of lemons).

Both Glenn and Stu took to social media (without guidance from God) to respond to these distorted headlines and claims.

As I am driving to the airport to come home I check the news.

Apparently the MSM is reporting that I said "God killed Scalia to help Ted Cruz."

Outrageous.

What I did say is "perhaps God allowed Scalia to die at this time to wake America up to how close we are to the loss of our freedom".

I happen to believe in divine providence. Americans historically have. Maybe you do not. That is your choice and I do not mock you for not. Why mock me for believing in a traditional view of God?

Maybe He did, maybe He didn't. Are we awake to our sorry state? I am not sure. If the freedom that we are about to lose belongs to God for future generations, it would only make sense that He would try to wake us. No?

He gives us free choice. Who He wants as president I do not know. What path He wants America to take to best preserve His rights and roles for us, I do not know.

The event is in the hand of God. No matter how the press wants to twist my words or meaning, I stand by we need to be awakened.

Yet another wonderful story floating around about Glenn Beck:

Here are some of the headlines.

---

Glenn Beck: God had to kill Antonin Scalia to help put Ted Cruz in the White House

Literal Holy Crap: Glenn Beck Says Scalia’s Death Part of God’s Plan to Elect Ted Cruz

Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia to Die to Wake Up Americans to Vote for Cruz

----

What's missing from all these headlines?? That's right! Quotes!

You see, Glenn didn't actually say any of the things in these headlines. He didn't say "God had to kill Antonin Scalia" for Ted Cruz. He didn't say Scalia's death was part of "God's plan to elect Ted Cruz." He didn't say God was helping "put Cruz in the White House" by killing Scalia.

In fact, in all of these stories about how Glenn Beck thinks he knows God's plan, guess what phrase was magically left out of each and every one of the transcripts?

BECK: "I don't want to assume that I know his plan"

Surely, that was just a mistake to leave that line out. Right?

Glenn can speak for himself when he comes back on Friday, but what I took from his point was something he has discussed many times.

With tragedy, comes an opportunity to refocus. That opportunity is a gift.

When a family member passes away, perhaps you refocus on connecting with your family. That doesn't mean that God murdered your brother to help the long distance phone company. Only a complete moron would take it that way.

More famously, Glenn started the 9/12 project. With the tragedy of 9/11, came the opportunity of 9/12 - a chance to refocus on what is really important. Faith. Hope. Love. Charity. That doesn't mean God killed 3,000 people so that firemen would have their boots filled with spare change. Only a complete moron would take it that way. See a pattern here?

With Scalia--sure-- we can all mourn a great man passing away. And we should. But, what did that great man care about? What did he stand for?

Glenn's belief that we should try to focus on what is important following a tragedy is something that he has tried to communicate his whole career. In this example, what was important to Scalia is what is important to the country. The constitution.

Whoever you believe would most honor the constitution is the person you should vote for. Obviously, to Glenn, that person is Ted Cruz.

Perhaps, if we all spent a little time trying to figure out who would most closely guard the constitution if elected, we could truly honor the life of Antonin Scalia.

Glenn has chimed in on his facebook page, calling the accusations "outrageous."

Outrageous, indeed. The days of the media being a watchdog for truth have long passed.

 

Listen to Glenn's exact words and the full conversation beginning at mark 15:00:

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
