Glenn Beck: Prominent Dem supports McCain


Lynn Forester de Rothschild

GLENN: Lynn Rothschild is with us now. Hello, Lynn, how are you?

ROTHSCHILD: I'm fine, Glenn. Thank you for having me.

GLENN: You know, I read the quote from you back in, I think it was June. You're a baroness, aren't you?

ROTHSCHILD: No. No, I'm not. I am a girl from New Jersey.

GLENN: Come on.

ROTHSCHILD: Middle class family. I made my own fortune and I married a wonderful man who is from a very prominent European family.

GLENN: Yes. He's a baron, right? So when I read this back in June that you were saying you thought Barack Obama was an elitist, I thought that was hysterical coming from somebody with the last name Rothschild.

ROTHSCHILD: You know, we get so lost in labels, it is really sad in this country. You know, I do have that title. I have lived the American dream.

GLENN: I know. I'm

ROTHSCHILD: It's not about me.

GLENN: I know. I'm giving you

ROTHSCHILD: Don't attack the messenger.

GLENN: I don't mean to attack you. Honestly I found it very, very funny and I'm just joking with you.

ROTHSCHILD: You are not alone, including my children.

GLENN: I want to ask you, because I thank you for speaking out. You're not coming over to the Republican side. You are who you are and you describe yourself as a progressive, right?

ROTHSCHILD: I do.

GLENN: I understand Progressives, at least the early, you know, last century progressive, as a party that was really pushing socialism and I think that's where Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, they have gone way left. Where do you separate yourself?

ROTHSCHILD: Well, I okay. We have a different idea of progressive. To me, what I mean by being a progressive is that I want to live in a country and a society that tries to bring along everyone in it, a society that lifts the boats for all people. That is not a left wing ideology. That's the American dream. I live the American dream. I grew up in a middle class family and now I have the life that is a dream.

GLENN: Right.

ROTHSCHILD: And that's why I want the right person in the White House, somebody who will preserve that for my children and my children's children.

GLENN: And you're saying now because you were a big Hillary supporter. You were a big fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. Did you tell her you were going to come out against Barack Obama?

ROTHSCHILD: No, of course I didn't. Of course I didn't. I said it publicly, because what I said is what you led with. Is I said in the New York Times in June that I love my country more than my party and I'm going to vote for the person who I trust most to do the right thing for ordinary Americans.

GLENN: You know, I tell you, Lynn, I saw the Country First slogan from John McCain and it dawned on me how right that was when I realized you can hope for change, but I don't even know what that means. The change people want is someone putting their country first, not themselves and not their party.

ROTHSCHILD: Absolutely. And if you look at Barack Obama, when has he ever done anything that wasn't completely in his own best interests. Barack Obama earmarked more than $830 million to pet projects, including I might say $1 million to his wife's employer, including the Bridge to Nowhere. He also voted for the Bush energy plan that was a huge giveaway to the oil company. Because where does Barack Obama get his money? From oil companies. And all of that really upsets me as a Democrat. As a Democrat I feel about the Democratic party the way you did about the Republican party. I think they have left their values behind. I am a centrist Democrat. I want a strong growth economy, I want strong foreign policy. Most of all, I want a party that works for people from the family that I came from, regardless of my name. Don't forget where I came from, you know, Glenn.

GLENN: No, I tell you, Lynn, I disagree with so much of Bill Clinton's policies, but Bill Clinton, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat over Barack Obama. It is a radical, radical change, a Barack Obama presidency, from what we even are as a country. Agree or disagree?

ROTHSCHILD: Oh, I totally agree. Barack Obama only became the nominee by running against the Clinton legacy. And the question is what part didn't you like, the peace or the prosperity. Bill Clinton won because people understood that he spent every waking hour thinking about how to make their lives better, and we have lost that as a party. The Democratic party is so up to their eyeballs in vested interests. Look at what Joe Biden did. Joe Biden ushered the bankruptcy bill through congress. Even Ariana Huffington from the left said that it was a morally corrupt bill. It hurt the working class so badly. And in this economic crisis, there are going to be people who are not going to be able to pay their bills and will not have protection of bankruptcy law because Joe Biden ushered it through to help the credit card companies that are located in Delaware. That is wrong.

GLENN: So Lynn, how first of all, are you even going to be welcome in the Democratic party? Because who's running the Democratic party right now? They're listening to people who I believe are so vitriolic like Keith Olbermann that will force you to shut up and sit down. That's not the American way. But look what they've done to Joe Lieberman. I mean, you're done when you disagree with

ROTHSCHILD: I don't care. I don't care. You know what? I've got to do the right thing. This is an issue of conscience for me. Claire McCaskill was just attacking me on Fox and Friends and attacking, like you starred, attacking me because I'm Lady de Rothschild.

GLENN: Wait, wait, Lynn, I wasn't attacking you. I was joking.

ROTHSCHILD: I am about as rah, rah American, as normal a person as you can get.

GLENN: I apologize that you have misunderstood my joke. I was not attacking you. Sincerely, I may disagree with your policies but I respect you. That's the only reason why I'm having you on. I respect you for having the courage to stand against the machine that both parties have created, and I really, truly believe until Republicans stop being Republicans and start being Americans and until Democrats stop being Democrats and look and say, "Wait a minute, where are these parties taking us," the only way we're going to survive is when people like you stand up.

ROTHSCHILD: Well, from your mouth to God's ears, I am so much on your side, and you have to say then that John McCain is your man. Look at how he stood up to George Bush. He was the most critical person on the execution of the war in Iraq. He voted against the Bush energy plan. He pushed immigration through with Ted Kennedy because he thought Ted Kennedy had a better idea than George Bush. He

GLENN: Who do you who else like you, is there anybody else, is there anybody that is going to stand up? I've wondered this. When I watch what's happening in congress, is there anyone that's willing to stand up against Nancy Pelosi? Is there anyone else of authority that you think is going to stand up and say, I mean, honestly?

ROTHSCHILD: Well, look. What I think is going to happen, when Barack Obama loses, all of these people who pushed him over the finish line to make him the nominee, led by Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean against the wishes of 18 million people are going to have a wake up call. And if the Democratic party does not start exercising and living by the values that it claims to have, it's going to continue to lose.

GLENN: Lynn, may I ask you a question. I said this right after Hillary didn't really endorse Barack Obama at the convention and I

ROTHSCHILD: Now, that's not fair. She really did. And you know what, they're going to try to put Barack Obama's loss on Hillary Clinton.

GLENN: No, no.

ROTHSCHILD: And that will be a gross injustice and it's total sexism, by the way. Hillary Clinton it is. It is.

GLENN: May I finish what I said?

ROTHSCHILD: No.

GLENN: Here's what I said. She did what she had to do as a good little foot soldier, but I don't believe that she wants him to win. I don't believe I believe that she will win Barack to quote, when Barack loses, she will then step into the power vacuum in the Democratic party and say, "It's because you moved too far left and I told you this before." She did the bare minimum to be able to be a good Democrat but not she has no credibility if she hoists up the flag and says, vote Barack Obama, he's the savior of the universe. Because she's going to have to come out and say, you moved too far left.

ROTHSCHILD: Look, no one has done more for a candidate than Hillary Clinton has. Remember Ted Kennedy did not endorse Jimmy Carter and nobody said that he was not a good Democrat. So it is grossly, it really is grossly unfair to put this on Hillary. She is working for him. You know, of course we know from looking at her, she is a centrist and the Clintons are centrists. They govern from the center. You know, NAFTA came through, work fair came through. We created not we he, Bill Clinton created millions of jobs by his policy of being in the center, and the left hates them for it, and it's payback time.

GLENN: Yes.

ROTHSCHILD: And that's why I am not feeling at all guilty about not voting Democrat in this election. I'm happy with John McCain.

GLENN: Lynn Forester de Rothschild, thank you so much for being on the program.

ROTHSCHILD: It's great to talk to you. It's an honor.

GLENN: Good to talk to you, thanks. All right. Bye bye.

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

Joshua Lott / Stringer, JOSEPH PREZIOSO / Contributor | Getty Images

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...
