The French Vote Only Delayed the Coming Storm

The citizens of France elected centrist Emmanuel Macron in a landslide victory. In doing so, they voted to maintain the status quo and delayed the coming storm.

"A poll a couple of years ago found that 94 percent of the Czech Republic favor closing the borders completely --- but they're not. They're standing by the EU. What are the people doing? They're starting to become anti-immigrant," Glenn said Monday on radio.

That's exactly what's happening around the world as elected officials pander to the politically correct and refuse to deliver what people want.

"I'm not a xenophobe. I'm not a racist. I'm not any of these things. But, guys, we have got to protect and know who is coming in," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: The French people had two choices: Delay the coming storm and maintain the status quo, which is probably what -- well, definitely what I would have voted for. Or I probably would have sat it out because I wouldn't have liked either candidate. Or given into the old world, you know, European nationalism.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: That was their choice. They didn't have a good option. And what they did was delay the inevitable. The status quo is what got them to this place in the first -- in the first place. And so they've just sealed their fate for another five years.

Now, here is what is really fascinating.

The Russians know this, I think, better than anybody else. A couple of hours before France entered their 48-hour media blackout, before the election, a massive leak of Macron's campaign and financial dirty laundry hit the internet. Now, why would you do it just before the media blackout? Because you would know that no media is going to be able to pick this up. So you'll only have the internet. And that could work to your advantage or disadvantage. But you'd only have the internet. The way to really affect it would be to release it a little bit earlier, perhaps. Perhaps.

STU: Well, they thought that the media would fight back against it.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: So they had no opposition against it because of the ban.

GLENN: Right. Perhaps. Perhaps.

STU: At least I think that was their theory.

GLENN: Perhaps it was their theory.

So 48 hours before France has a media blackout and nobody can say anything about the election or anything, and they release this. Now, it was a -- it was almost a carbon copy of the DNC Podesta hack. Investigators over in France have traced it back. Exactly the same group, Fancy Bear, who is a surrogate for the Russian military intelligence. Why wouldn't you hide that? Why would you use the same people, the same DNS -- why? Why would you do it so late in the game? Perhaps as Stu said, it is because they wouldn't have any opposition.

But I believe it's because they knew just like the rest of the pollsters, that there was a massive trouncing coming to Le Pen no matter what. And 11.4 million people are probably going to sit out. Can we lead to more people sitting out and being disenfranchised and just saying, "I don't care who wins anymore." Not to help Le Pen win, but to add to the discontent. Releasing the information pours gasoline on a bonfire. The French already feel like I've got to settle for the status quo. But now this guy's coming in -- he's facing a lame duck five-year presidency. The French and the global media going to have a field day now, exposing Macron and his party's dirty secrets.

You'll notice -- did you hear much fanfare that the Clinton Global Initiative closed on April 15th. Yeah, right? Right? Look that up.

STU: This would be the time that you would want to turn it on.

GLENN: Look that up. They had problems with donations, apparently. Apparently, all of the big countries --

JEFFY: I bet.

GLENN: -- like Saudi Arabia and Qatar and everybody else, they decided that they didn't want to do anymore goodwill. Or, they decided that there was no access to be purchased.

STU: It's not shutting down.

GLENN: No.

STU: They've -- I think what you're referring to is a report that they were downsizing.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: Uh-huh. Which you think would be the opposite.

GLENN: Would be the opposite. You're now out of the --

STU: Worry about the elections.

GLENN: Right. How can the Clinton Foundation make this move and nobody notice? Nobody in the press is even noticing about their donations from -- from these countries. That they're starting to dry up. Kind of interesting.

If she were president, I can guarantee you, WikiLeaks would be exposing all kinds of things. And I believe the Russians will eventually expose Trump for all kinds of things as well. Why? What do they want? They want public distrust and angst. That's what they want.

If Hillary Clinton would have won, I think they would have done the same thing here. The hacks would have kept coming because they're playing the long game. The leftists, the Islamists, the alt-right are playing that game as well. What do they want? An insurrection. They want to burn the whole thing down.

France just took a massive step toward burning the whole thing down. And one more thought on this. Next, the Czech Republic -- the Czech Republic is taking in refugees, and they oppose it. A poll a couple of years ago found that 94 percent of the Czech Republic favor closing the borders completely. They're not. They're standing by the EU. What are the people doing? They're starting to become anti-immigrant. Germany is also becoming hostile to the EU.

What is happening around the world? Is that people feel -- and see if you feel this way -- nobody is listening to me. Nobody is -- I'm not a xenophobe. I'm not a racist. I'm not any of these things. But, guys, we have got to protect and know who is coming in. I want the best and the brightest to come in. And I also will take those from war-torn countries, but I want to make sure, just like we would have done in Germany, I want to make sure they're not Nazis. I want to make sure they're not actual enemies of the United States. Nobody is listening to me about my job and my pay. And they're playing games with health care. And they've promised us one thing. And our health care costs as a family went through the roof. And I couldn't keep my doctor. I don't even know what's happening. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get insurance anymore.

And then the right does it. And the right was lying to us. The G.O.P. -- is somebody listening to me?

The answer is no, far too often -- far too oftentimes. Nobody is listening to me. I have no levers to pull. There's nothing I can do to get somebody to turn around and listen to me. I can't effect change. I can't even control my own life.

And I don't recognize this anymore. I don't feel like I belong even to polite society. It was one thing when I said, you know, I don't really recognize my country. And the left laughed. And now the left is saying, "I don't recognize my country." And the right is laughing. I'm not laughing. I didn't laugh then. I'm not laughing now. I don't recognize my country. But more importantly, I don't recognize the truth in anything.

I mean, they're now expecting me to believe that a man can say he's a woman. Just say it. I'm identifying as a woman. And I have to accept that? That a woman can identify as a black person. And blacks have to accept that?

I don't even recognize the truth anymore. And I know the rich are getting richer. And I've never been a guy who has had a problem with rich getting rich. The reason why I have a problem with rich getting rich now is because far too many times, it's because they have access to banks and loans and interest rates that I could never get my hands on. Or they have enough lobbyists to rig the game their way. That's not fair.

And they're telling me that I can't hold sacred the things I have always held sacred, things about God, things about my country. I'm told that that has no meaning. Or if it does have meaning, it's all bad meaning. That's how people are feeling.

And when you increase the stress of money, when you increase the stress of losing a job, not being able to make ends meet, people will listen to anybody who says, "I got a plan. It's those people over there. We just get rid of those people." Whoever they are -- left, right, in the middle -- it doesn't matter. Atheist, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, it doesn't matter. People will round people up when they're afraid.

Thank God the French rejected that kind of thinking this weekend. But unfortunately, as the press celebrates -- because the press doesn't get it -- it's not that they're intentionally -- they just don't get it. They don't hear you. They don't hear Europe. And because they don't hear, they celebrate. Ooh. Dodged a bullet there. Victory for us. France isn't as racist as America. No. No. You really don't get it.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
