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.

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.
