Is Lorreta Lynch Calling For Violence?

The former Attorney General of the United States is feeling trampled upon. So much so that she released a video in a very soft spoken voice --- but the rhetoric didn't exactly match.

LYNCH: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.

"What rights? Be specific. What rights?" Glenn asked Monday on radio.

LYNCH: I know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers. And it has been been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference.

"Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did? Wasn't it just simple people?" Glenn questioned.

Simple people mischaracterized and condemned as crazy, violent racists.

LYNCH: They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

"You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it? Is she calling for violence?" Glenn asked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Who was the person that came out this weekend -- hang on if I have it. That said, "You know, hey, it's time to march. And, you know, in the past, there's been blood and death in the streets."

JEFFY: Loretta Lynch.

GLENN: Yeah, Loretta Lynch. Listen to this.

LORETTA: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on, and even being rolled back.

PAT: Which rights are those that have been assailed, trampled on, and rolled back?

GLENN: Now, why would you say that, Pat? Why would you say that, Pat?

PAT: Because that's exactly what they said in the very beginning of the Bush administration.

GLENN: No, no. That's what they said to us, during the Obama administration.

PAT: And they said it to us -- yes. Yes.

GLENN: We would say, our rights.

What rights? Be specific. What rights?

PAT: Right. Right. And, frankly, we were hard-pressed to name the specifics because we knew there were violations. We knew that they were misusing their power, but it was really hard to point to any one thing and say, "Well, look, they've made it so we can't talk. We can't go to church. We can't --

GLENN: IRS. IRS.

PAT: IRS is a great one, and we have the examples now.

GLENN: Freedom of press.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: The wiretapping of the press, we know.

PAT: All the prosecutions of the journalists under Obama, which was more than all other presidents combined.

GLENN: Combined. How about the I want your church to deliver all of its sermons about homosexuality.

PAT: Oh, yeah. In Houston. Right.

GLENN: I mean, there are three big ones --

PAT: Huge.

GLENN: Aren't all three of those in the First Amendment?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: So we just got to the First Amendment.

STU: Certainly there's no violations to the second.

GLENN: Right. Taking away -- taking away every person who is Social Security, that had -- what was it? That had someone else picking up their check. If you didn't go and pick up your check in person or cash your check in person, you lost your right to guns.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, they just overturned that. That was one of the last things they did. And he just took that and through executive order --

PAT: Which was great. Good for him. Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to that.

PAT: But there's more.

LORETTA: We know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Play one more line.

LORETTA: It's been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals --

GLENN: Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did?

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: Wasn't it just simple people --

PAT: Yes. And they condemned them as violent racists.

GLENN: Violent racists.

PAT: Crazies.

JEFFY: Oh. Called them names.

PAT: Extremists. Jeez.

GLENN: They said, this is not going to be easy. We have no -- we have no heritage of doing this. But it is time for good people to stand up and say, "No, this is not who we are." And stand up peacefully. And that was deemed we were anti-government.

PAT: And it was the last thing in the world any of us wanted to do because we don't do that kind of stuff. We all have jobs, unlike the left.

GLENN: Correct. We don't do it.

Okay. So first -- first, she says our rights are being trampled.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And it would be very easy for us to say, what rights?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just like they did.

PAT: Just like they did.

GLENN: But that's not helpful.

PAT: But it is fun. I will say that.

GLENN: It is fun. Then she says, it's just ordinary people. And we could say, oh, like us?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Probably shouldn't say that, but it is fun.

And then the third one...

VOICE: Who have made the difference. They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

PAT: She seems to be saying --

GLENN: You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it. Is she calling for violence?

PAT: Right? Is that too much of a stretch? I'll tell you, that's a lot less of a stretch than we're targeting this district. A lot less.

GLENN: Yes.

JEFFY: That's for sure.

STU: Yeah. I just don't think it is, but...

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: And they have -- the left has the heritage of doing that.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It was the Weather Underground that was the left. It was Malcolm X that was the left. It was the Black Panthers that was the left. So help us out here.

STU: Half of these people are marching in Che Guevara T-shirts, which was the left.

GLENN: Yes. Right. I mean, it's so very clear. And, again, we could spend time talking about that. And it feels good.

PAT: It does.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
