Glenn: How Do You Fight These Companies That Control Your Information?

Everyone should take notice of Google’s decision to fire a software engineer for trying to offer input on the company’s diversity programs. Our society is quickly making it risky to have an opinion – and big corporations controlling our information pose a threat to free thought.

On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck warned that the tech industry’s influence is growing in dangerous ways.

“We’re going to be controlled by four corporations,” Glenn said, listing Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon. “How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library?” he asked.

Google is emphasizing “diversity,” but the company is ultimately preaching victimhood by telling women that they should feel oppressed and that they can’t do anything on their own.

“You’re so stupid you don’t even know you’re oppressed,” Glenn paraphrased. “Without us, you’ll never make it.”

GLENN: So because of a fear of leaks, Google has cancelled it's all hands-on meeting over the engineering fiasco. What is happening in tech? What is happening in Silicon Valley?

Jeffy, did you look up -- did you look up Abraham Lincoln for me today? Did you Google him? Can you bring that over to me? I want to see, what does Google say about Abraham Lincoln. I want everybody to Google right now "Abraham Lincoln." What does Google say about Abraham Lincoln?

Now, of course, they're going to give you the whitehouse.gov and the Wikipedia page. But over on the right, you'll see Abraham Lincoln, 16th president. Do you see that? This is the information provided by Google.

Abraham Lincoln was the American politician, lawyer, who served as the 16th president of the United States from March 1861, assassination 1865. Born February 12th, 1809. Height, 6-4. Assassinated, April 15th. Party, the National Union Party. Wait. What? What?

PAT: What?

GLENN: Huh? The National Union Party. I've not heard of the National Union Party.

You want to know the effects of Google, there it is.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: There it is.

Google is the portal for all information. When Google decides we're going to change that information, it's changed. And who are they -- who are your kids going to believe? You or Google?

PAT: Google.

GLENN: When I saw that yesterday, I thought, "There is no more important thing than the preservation of the documents that we are preserving right now at Mercury One. There is nothing more important."

You want to talk about clay pots. You remember 12, 15 years ago, I started hearing in my prayers, "clay pots." When it comes to history, clay pots. And I wondered, is it for our children? And the answer is yes. Is it for the preservation of those documents, like the clay pots, to me, refer to the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Once the Nicene Creed was adopted and everybody said, "This is Christology, this is what the Bible says, and nothing more," the Dead Sea Scrolls became very important. Quick, roll up everything you have and put them in clay pots and bury them deep in caves where no one will find them because they're all going to be destroyed. Because the early church wanted no dissent. And the way you have -- you have to destroy the documents.

That has never become more important than education for our children so they know it. But they have to know it with the actual documents. Because I'm sorry. I've never heard of the National Union Party. Can somebody tell me -- I'm going to Google -- I'm just going to click on it. National Union Party.

PAT: Yeah, it's the Republican Party. It's what they called themselves during that election. Yeah, it's the Republican Party.

GLENN: Yeah, the name used by the Republican Party.

Now, how many are -- how many are going to say the National Union Party?

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: So you know, correct. Correct. I've never heard it referred to as that.

PAT: I haven't either.

JEFFY: No.

GLENN: So I guess it's correct. Uh-huh.

Or is it one of those facts that most people -- because they don't do their own homework. They'll look down here, oh, Abraham Lincoln was not a Republican. He was not a Republican. The Republicans took over after Abraham Lincoln. That's exactly what's coming. That's exactly what's coming.

And you know who's going to do it? Not the stupid people. But the people who are in direct control of our universities. And? The people who control the portal of information.

Google should have every Libertarian, every classic liberal, and, quite honestly, every liberal, running for the hills.

They should be -- you want to talk about a takeover of a corporation and making the United States into just one giant corporation, I'll tell you, it's the circle. It's Apple. It's Google. It's -- what's the -- it's Amazon.

We're going to be controlled by four corporations. I know. That sounds like a conspiracy theory.

How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library? If the librarian says to your student, "The Road to Serfdom, that doesn't exist." Oh, you're thinking of the Road to Serfdom. The Road to Serfdom, that was, a nickname for Adam Smith's book Wealth of Nations because it actually just turns you into a slave. No, we don't actually have a copy of Wealth of Nations. It was discredited a long time ago. But I have some papers here that you can read about it. How hard is that?

Now, I'm obviously taking that to the nth degree. But may I just say that the nth degree has passed a long time ago. The nth degree has -- when I'm not leading the show with, did you see the picture of Chelsea Manning in the swimsuit on the beach?

PAT: And, no, fortunately I did not.

GLENN: Oh, no. In Vanity Fair, where they called her "a stunning American beauty."

PAT: No.

Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: I think you would agree, Pat.

PAT: You think so?

JEFFY: I think so, yeah.

GLENN: I mean, a stunning American traitor, sure. A stunning American beauty? Go ahead. Go to GlennBeck.com. The picture is up there.

STU: No thanks. No thank you.

GLENN: What the hell is this?

PAT: I have to see it.

GLENN: So don't tell me that anything is insane anymore. We're there. We're there.

We're so far over the cliff -- and, by the way, I actually -- when I saw that last night, I thought, "I've got to call Don. I've got to call Don Imus."

STU: Terrible instinct on --

GLENN: Yeah, no. No, no, no. That was my next thought: I wonder if Don would even say anything anymore. I wonder what the blowback would be for me to put Don Imus on, who says, "American beauty?" Fill in the rest of the Don Imus monologue.

You can't have that opinion anymore. Let me go back to Google for a second. You go back to Google, and you look at what -- why are women upset? Women are upset because, quite honestly, their new slave owners, the progressive movement, is telling them they're nothing without them.

Without this education, without us clearing the path, you don't -- you're so stupid, you don't even know you're oppressed. You're so stupid, that without us, you'll never make it.

Christians are conflicted when it comes to President Donald Trump. Some proudly support him and his policies, while others just can't accept the man behind the boorish language.

Ruth Graham, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to make a case for the president from a Christian's point-of-view.

On Thursday's radio program ,Glenn interviewed Dr. Karlyn Borysenko, who described what it was like attending a President Trump rally as a Democrat. She told Glenn Beck that crossing party lines is nearly forbidden in liberal circles but she branched out anyway — and learned quite a bit about the other side.

Ryan: Bernie at the airport Holiday Inn

Photo by Sean Ryan

(Part One) . (Part Two). (Part Three).

Some poor guy booked a hotel at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines on February 3, 2020, assuming it would be a harmless Monday night. Only to find himself in the middle of an overflowing Bernie rally on the night of the caucuses.

For the record, the man was not a Bernie Sanders supporter. Far from it. He popped his head backward when I told him where I work, smiling. Well, grinning, to be precise.

*

After her speech, Klobuchar wandered into the crowd, immediately submerged. Selfies. Everybody wanted them. A minute later, the other candidates began to appear on screen, giving speeches.

"Bernie," asked Justin Robert Young, host of Politics Politics Politics.

"Bernie," I said, and we paced to the car and lurked out onto the depopulated streets and the trenchant cold. But we were both bright with excitement, a couple of detectives. The valet attendants in their satin outfits saw two oddities, and they were right.

Justin Young and I had just left the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for Amy Klobuchar's "Amy for America caucus night party." She gave her speech, in a brilliant maneuver. I skated the Nissan down empty streets, quietly listening to Bernie's speech on the Iowa Public Radio station.

"I love this, what we're about to do," I said, gripping the wheel, words hurried, leaning forward, tapping my left boot. "We're going to hear Bernie talking, then we'll park, then walk through some doors and we will stroll into that very room as Bernie is giving the speech that's being broadcast to millions of people."

It was like how in the game Mario Bros., Mario can jump into giant green storm drains, occasionally. Like leaping into the television and joining the cast.

"There's nobody out on the roads," one of us said. "Holiday Inn, right up there." As broad-winged commercial airplanes floated overhead. We scoured for a parking spot and each second felt wasted. Urgent. We needed to be inside that hotel. But there was nowhere to park. Even the illegal spots were taken. Cars had creviced every inch of parking lot and curb and all that, had even jammed into dark pyramids of sludge.

*

Rita Dove wrote, "I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on."

*

There were so many more journalists press at Bernie's event that the only media spots left were in the overflow room, which itself seemed at capacity. Dank, too. With a heavy vibe, like a sinister library.

The entire hotel exuded gloom. A quietness you hear in locker rooms after a game that should have ended differently.

Bernie supporters, dazed, stomped out into the snow, or to the bathrooms, or just in need of a bit of stomping.

*

Back to Beechwood Lounge, where we watched the Super Bowl a day earlier. Although it felt like a week had passed since then.

Approaching midnight, by that point.

Because Justin consumes politics with an all-encompassing urgency. As if it's a duty. He's clearly studied history and politics for years. Part historian, part political scientist, but also part reporter and part comedian. On one hand, he's guided by the old school approach to journalism. Objectivity. Solemnity. Accuracy.

An American has the right to tell nobody who they voted for. Or maybe it's a cultural thing.

Snow everywhere you look, piles of it full of gas and oil, and rubbish as well. That day was unseasonably warm. The next would plummet us into literal freezing. The kind of day that slows everyone down. With all that ice, you have to be cautious about every step.

Shame is for the uninitiated.

In 1990 Michael Bloomberg's employees created a short book full of crude, sexist, and shocking quotes he allegedly said at work, including one story that has him telling a female employee to "kill it" after she announced she was pregnant. Sadly, that story has him fitting right in with the Democratic party in 2020.

The booklet, titled, 'Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,' has resurfaced to haunt the Democratic presidential candidate after "The Washington Post" published the full text on Saturday.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn) shared some of the less colorful (many were too lewd to be repeated on radio,) but no less disgusting quotes.
