The Strange Alliance Between Steve Bannon and Alex Jones

Word on the street is that Steve Bannon is leaking valid scoops to ridiculous media personalities like Alex Jones to give them more credibility.

"Apparently he is feeding Alex Jones --- and a guy who is even crazier than Alex Jones --- legitimate scoops to be able to prop up their conspiracy theories," Glenn said on radio Wednesday.

That slash-and-burn approach confuses the waters.

"If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment beginning at mark 29:20 from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: But this is what people do. I mean, Jeffy is a good example of that. It's how people think. They will take 100 statements in a row they know are false. Look for one that has the slightest bit of truth and investigate it. It's so bizarre.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, that takes us right back to the White House. This is what Bannon is doing. Remember, Bannon is a burn it down. What's he want to burn down? The system. The best way to burn down the system is ruin your trust in everything.

If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything. It's just, who is the strongest up at the top of the hill? And he plans on being that guy.

So what is he doing?

STU: He is -- well, again, the reports are that he is leaking and other White House officials are leaking valid scoops to people who are generally would be considered a conspiracy theorist or crazy people. Like Alex Jones.

GLENN: Yeah, we're talking about the Alex Jones and worse.

STU: And worse. And the reason they're doing this is because they want people to believe there are more crazy things. So when -- you leak something to Alex Jones and he comes out with it and he turns out to be right, just like when the president during the campaign used the argument with National Enquirer, well, you know, Ted Cruz -- did his dad kill JFK? Or was he involved in some way? But they had the John Edwards thing right.

PAT: They got that right.

STU: So they used -- they had X, Y, and Z right. So you can give a couple examples, and that one is, I mean, really hard. You're talking about 30 years of the National Enquirer being wrong, and you can pull out three or four stories where they were right. Here, you know, these are people that most people are not at all -- are not at all familiar with.

GLENN: Alex Jones is wrong more times than the National Enquirer in one day.

PAT: Oh, I'll not have you disparage this man.

GLENN: He's wrong more times than the National Enquirer has been in 30 years.

STU: Well, you're valuing frequency over timeline, and I understand that. But either way --

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Listen to all the things this guy had right. Listen to them.

ALEX: And to feel what the children are feeling.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: He's feeling it.

ALEX: God Almighty.

STU: He's feeling the children.

GLENN: Don't do it, Pat. Here he goes. (crying).

ALEX: Folks -- folks, we got to get good people to stand up against these people. (crying).

(chuckling)

PAT: I probably shouldn't have done the show today.

ALEX: I probably shouldn't even have done this radio show today.

PAT: Or any day.

ALEX: Because I have this disgusted cover.

STU: Globalists.

ALEX: I just hate the globalists, but it's more than that.

STU: I love that.

(laughter)

ALEX: I just get flippant and angry, but it's because deep down, I can see what they're doing. And we have a responsibility.

PAT: Tell us why. Tell us why, Alex.

GLENN: Where are the men?

ALEX: To stop these globalists.

Where are the men in this country? Where are the men in this world? What the hell have we become? We just offer our children up to the system with the fluoride in the water and the GMO hurting them. And we let fat perverts grab them at the airport to train them for the pedophile government.

PAT: Right.

ALEX: And we've just got such a sick society.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: Earlier, I was going to say, no, his lawyer is lying. And he's not a performance artist. But that is such performance. I mean, there's no way that is real.

PAT: No, I think it is.

JEFFY: Oh, I don't know. We've watched enough clips --

PAT: I think it's real. I think it's real.

JEFFY: We've watched enough clips. If you start rolling into more and more Alex Jones clips, you get to the point where it's real.

PAT: Well, it's all like this. It's all some version of this.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: It's not all as hysterical, where he's crying and slobbering. But it's all, you know, screaming. And the intensity is always there.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: He's just -- that's him.

GLENN: What I know is real with him is when he takes his shirt off, he's -- something snaps in him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really dark snaps in him. And he takes his shirt off. And it's like a roid rage.

STU: Well, it's just because I've had some jalapeÒos. I've been eating some jalapenos.

PAT: I ate a steak last night. I ate a steak. A T-bone. Got a lot of testosterone. Lot of protein.

GLENN: I eat steak almost every day. You know, I have hamburger. I have meat of some sort from a cow.

PAT: Right. Me too. Me too.

GLENN: Almost every day. Never have that problem.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: My testosterone is very low. Don't have that problem.

(chuckling)

STU: Plenty of other problems. But not that.

GLENN: Not that.

JEFFY: Think of this though. That right there got custody of the kids, right?

PAT: Yeah, that's crazy. I mean, how did that happen?

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: How did that happen?

GLENN: So what does that mean about his wife? Do we know anything about his wife?

JEFFY: I don't know. I know.

GLENN: How does his wife lose custody?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Oh. I would give -- I mean, if I could just take a vacation and just go down -- wouldn't that be the most entertaining vacation.

JEFFY: It would be so much fun.

PAT: Yeah, to be at that trial.

GLENN: Oh, to be at that trial and just sit there and watch that. That is -- I mean, I would bring popcorn. That's a movie.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: If you want to -- if you want to go down and you want to be the, you know, reporter for us and, you know, call in tomorrow, call us right now.

JEFFY: That would be great.

STU: That would be interesting to see.

PAT: That would be fun.

STU: I mean, there's a couple of reporters in there. I guess, day one, there was almost no one in the courtroom. And now --

GLENN: It's starting to get packed.

PAT: It's packed?

STU: They're bringing in a crowd now.

GLENN: No, it's a show. Come on, that's a show. That's a great thing.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
