Thomas Paine and George Washington Disagreed — And They Were Both Patriots

With no intention of talking about the Sean Hannity situation and making it a back-and-forth between the two, Glenn felt compelled to say a few more things on radio Thursday morning.

"There is a lesson to be learned here, and I want to show you that this is exactly the time that I have been, hopefully, preparing people for, including me," Glenn said.

He reminded listeners of a time when some would say in anger, "Come this way," and many people would follow.

"We need to be an audience, we need to be a group of people that stand in our own places and say, 'No, no, don't go that way,'" Glenn said.

Martin Luther King said that love will always win, that light will always conquer the dark.

"The only way to bring healing is not with more anger, rage or hate, but it is listening to one another, trying to understand where someone is coming from and saying, 'I come unarmed. You can do what you want, I'm not swinging back,'" Glenn said.

With that, he played what Sean Hannity said yesterday afternoon:

SEAN: When you add the Glenn Becks of the world that just -- you know, I've heard Nazi references on his program. I have heard him refer to me, "How does Sean Hannity sleep at night?" Frankly, I sleep well because I kept my promise. I serve my audience, and I'm keeping my promise now.

"Okay, I want you to know that so have we. We have kept our promise. Do you have the thing from 2014, I think it was? In 2014, I got on the air, and I said, 'Look, here's the thing. I'm not going to vote for the lesser of two evils anymore,'" Glenn said.

From Election Day, November 4, 2014:

"If you remember right, a year and a half, two years ago, we all looked at each other, and we made each other raise the hand and swear to one another that not only we wouldn't vote for the lesser of two evils, but we would help each other because we're going to get weak," Glenn said.

"Stop us," Stu remembered.

"We did," Jeffy added.

Pat then played audio from the 2013 archives:

GLENN: I really will not vote for another person. Never before in my life have I said this. I just voted at a stupid local election. I mean, jeez, for the love of pete, I voted. I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney. I will not vote. I will skip it. I will not cast my vote for that.

STU: I'm pulling the calendar out right now.

GLENN: Put it. Put it.

STU: And I'm going to put a 2016 date on the reminder.

GLENN: And you know what, I want you to chastise me. I want you to play this -- let me talk to future Glenn.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Glenn, if you -- let me look right into the camera: Glenn, don't do it. Don't do it. They have fooled you again. They have played all those games again. And if you're thinking right now, well, but the other person -- doesn't matter! Stop selling your values out! Stop it right now! You play that.

"Three years ago. Three years ago," Pat said.

"So this is three years ago. If anybody thinks that my stance has anything to do with Hillary Clinton, anything to do with Donald Trump, anything to do with being angry about Ted Cruz, it's none of that. It's none of that," Glenn said.

"We made a promise to ourselves and our audience," Pat said.

"I said that I am going to stand on principle. That doesn't make me self-righteous. That just makes me exactly like you, Sean. You said you're keeping a promise to yourself and your audience, so am I. It's just a different promise," Glenn said.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
