Glenn: Our Leaders Have ‘Punched Us in the Face’ and ‘We Just Keep Coming Back for More’

The media figures we depend on for news and the political leaders we expected to protect us have betrayed our trust over and over. Glenn told a sobering story from his family history to illustrate this mistreatment on radio Wednesday.

Comparing the media and our leaders to abusers, he talked about a family member who put up with an abusive relationship for years. “Are you done yet?” she was asked many times.

From Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to President Donald Trump, our lawmakers have made promises and ultimately failed us. No matter how many times we get exploited by our leaders, we keep coming back for more.

“All of them have abused us and punched us in the face, all of them have. For their own political power, gain … in their own way,” Glenn said.

GLENN: All right. Two stories that show you how crazy we are getting.

Antifa protesters marched on Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Piedmont Park has monuments there.

And they were going to destroy all the confederate monuments in Piedmont Park. It was only after they vandalized and spray-painted a statue, that somebody took the time to read underneath the statue, that said, "This is a peace monument, encouraging national healing in the wake of the Civil War." This wasn't a Confederate memorial. This was, "Let us heal the wounds of the past."

But the mob doesn't care. So maybe we should react to the mob. Maybe we should do everything we can just to appeal to the mob.

That's what ESPN did yesterday. ESPN decided to take Robert Lee -- not Robert E. Lee, Robert Lee, Asian descent, Lee, the surname, like I hate to -- you know, I hate to put it into this category, but I just want to make sure we all understand, it's like Lee's Noodle House. It is an Asian name that you would see anywhere. It is -- you know, it is an Asian name. It is not an American name like Robert E. Lee, the Confederate.

So what did ESPN do? They decided to get rid of Robert Lee, because of the mob. We can't have Robert Lee, you know, do play-by-play for this game because his name is Robert Lee, and that's offensive to a lot of people. That's offensive.

That's offensive? No, what's offensive is -- is me trying to make all Asians into owners of noodle houses. That seems like a crazy thing to say. Because why?

They're not. They're not.

They're also not all geniuses in math. They're people.

To take a name and say, "Oh, my gosh, that's an offensive name," on this guy. Talk about judge me on the content of my character. Who is this guy? He has nothing to do with Robert E. Lee. Nothing to do with Robert E. Lee.

It's offensive to roll him up. And it's offensive to the American people. It's an offense to us to say, "Oh, well, we're just so stupid." But then again, I take it back to the memorial, that they tried to deface, that is a peace memorial. Had nothing to do with it.

So I want to ask you what my grandfather asked my aunt. And I think I'm just going to ask you this every day because this is what my aunt did. My aunt married a guy who my grandfather knew was abusive. And make no mistake, guys, we are in abusive relationships.

Our media, the G.O.P., the DNC, all politicians, quite honestly, from -- let me throw my guy under the bus -- from Ted Cruz to Donald Trump, in one way or another, all of them have abused us and punched us in the face. All of them have, for their own political power, gain, et cetera, et cetera. In their own way. Some, much more egregious than others.

But on all sides, we are in an abusive relationship. And we just keep coming back for more. So all the way down the aisle, my grandfather said to my aunt, "Please, don't do this, Joanne. Please don't do this. Please."

"Dad, you are wrecking my wedding."

"Please, I'm begging you. Let's turn around right now. There's nothing to be lost here. There's no shame in this. Please, turn around. Let's walk out now."

When she said no, he said, "I'm -- I'll always be here, and I'll always be your dad. You let me know when you're done." And every time she would come home with a black eye and she would cry on my grandmother's shoulder, my grandfather would walk in the room and he would ask one question, "Are you done yet?" Most of the time, she answered, "No, Dad, stop it. You don't understand."

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."
