Stop the Presses! Alex Jones Issues a Retraction - Sort Of

Conspiracy theorist and unofficial Trump adviser Alex Jones did what no one thought he could --- he issued a retraction. It was actually more of a non-retraction retraction, only apologizing for naming the owner of the #PizzaGate restaurant as part of the Hillary Clinton pedophilia cabal. Monday on radio, Glenn pointed out how the conspiracy lives on in the parsing of language by Mr. Jones, while his co-hosts took a walk down the Alex Jones memory lane.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Well, there's -- there was quite a big announcement on Friday that had nothing to do with Obamacare, had a little something to do with Hillary Clinton's campaign. And that is that Pizzagate has finally been cleared up for all of those people that believed in Pizzagate, and we --

PAT: It, of course, was where Hillary Clinton was running this -- essentially a whorehouse out of a pizza house in Washington --

STU: Child whorehouse.

PAT: Yes. And then there was a series of incredibly complex tunneling underneath where they would come and go. You would see them go in, but never come out, because they went out through the tunnels.

GLENN: Yeah, of course. And, of course, if you ordered like a Hawaiian with extra cheese --

PAT: That meant --

GLENN: I don't know what it meant.

PAT: That you wanted a little Polynesian child.

GLENN: With a little extra chunk to them or something. I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

STU: Legitimately, they had each --

GLENN: Yeah, they had the whole list. And there's a big announcement from the guy who is, you know, one of the -- one of the lead flag wavers for this.

STU: Oh, no.

ALEX: In issuing this statement, we are not admitting that Mr. Alefantis or his restaurants have any legal claim. We do not believe they do, but we are issuing this statement because we believe it's the right thing to do.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: It will be no surprise to you that we will fight for children across America.

PAT: That's no surprise at all.

ALEX: But the Pizzagate narrative, at least as concerned Mr. Alefantis at Comet Ping Pong --

PAT: At least as far as concerning him. I mean, the whole thing may be true, outside of this one guy, who is about to sue us into oblivion. But he has nothing to do with this particular thing.

STU: Right.

PAT: Everything else is true.

STU: And this is obviously Alex Jones, the ridiculous conspiracy theorist. But obviously, having a severe threat of a lawsuit, as you can tell, he's reading this hostage statement.

PAT: And this was -- this was one of the dumbest conspiracy theories ever devised.

GLENN: Well, he's never met a conspiracy that he doesn't like.

PAT: No, he sure hasn't. Everything is a conspiracy to him. He doesn't even believe in Muslim terror. That's all perpetrated by the government.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Yeah, he doesn't buy into Muslim terrorists at all.

STU: Oh, 9/11 was an inside job.

PAT: Right.

STU: That's where it all stems from.

PAT: False flags. We're blaming things on Muslims, so we can go to war with them. That's not a real thing.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

ALEX: We have subsequently determined was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative.

PAT: No.

ALEX: Despite the fact that we were far from the genesis of this story, it is never easy to admit when your commentaries are based on inaccurate information.

GLENN: Okay. So wait a minute. So the guy who showed up with a gun at the pizza parlor, I'm hoping he's heard this now too.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Alex has said, oops. I guess we were listening to the wrong person.

STU: And to be clear, the guy with the gun figured it out before Alex. Because he left there, realizing there was nothing to it.

GLENN: Yeah, he went there to kill them. And then he realized, I don't think there's a tunnel system underneath --

PAT: Oh, it's just a pizza parlor. Okay.

GLENN: Yeah.

ALEX: We feel like we owe it to you the listeners, viewers and supporters, to make that statement, and to give an apology and Mr. Alefantis, when we do. We encourage you to hold us accountable because we improve when you do.

GLENN: That's really good.

STU: And this --

GLENN: Here's how -- now, I don't know how seriously he took it. Because he was wearing his shirt when he read that.

(laughter)

JEFFY: Yes, he was.

GLENN: And you know --

PAT: Do we have that confirmed?

GLENN: We have that confirmed. He was wearing his shirt.

JEFFY: He was prepared to take it off.

GLENN: Usually when he really means something, he rips his shirt off.

PAT: He must not have had his steak the night before and wasn't feeling the testosterone.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Was it steak that makes him feel like that?

PAT: It's steak and jalapeño peppers.

STU: Also, wait a minute. What about his supplements? His supplements --

GLENN: It could be that. Or it could just be bipolar roid rage. You know, it could be --

STU: It's possible that they sold so much male vitality formula that they had none left for him. Because, I mean, that could be the problem here. This is a monumentous occasion here. The fact that he -- this is a man who said Sandy Hook didn't happen. It was obviously fake with fake actors.

GLENN: And the children were all fake.

PAT: And he denied saying that, but he's on record saying it.

GLENN: When you say record, you mean YouTube.

PAT: Yes.

STU: But, I mean, that's his record. The point is, he doesn't back down from these things. And you might say, well, hey, it's a good thing. He's finally admitting one of these things is fake. I think it's the exact opposite. The reason he said anything is because he never had any consequences to it. He's now been so mainstreamed by certain members of -- of --

GLENN: Donald Trump.

STU: Donald Trump. That he now is in the position where people care enough about what he says to get lawsuits that he has to apologize for. This is him being mainstreamed and the result of it, which is really a terrible development for our country.

GLENN: This is so -- I mean, you want to talk about conspiracy theories, this -- this pizza thing is just outrageous. And, by the way, his people say that I know about Pizzagate, and I've either been bought off or I'm a part of it.

PAT: So I wonder if they'll maybe back off that claim now.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I mean, doesn't that illegitimatize everything he said surrounding this Pizzagate nonsense?

GLENN: No, no, because he said --

PAT: At least as it applies to Mr. Cowanakis -- or whatever his name was. Whereas it applies to you, it's still enforced.

GLENN: Oh, I'm sure.

What he's saying here is, I still believe in Pizzagate, just not going through this pizza parlor. There is another one with secret tunnels.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

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.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
