Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly: Bold, fresh piece of humanity


A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity

O'REILLY: Hey, Glenn, how are you doing, man?

GLENN: Really enjoyed your book.

O'REILLY: Thank you for reading it. Appreciate that.

GLENN: I will tell you, by the way, the name of it is a bold fresh piece of humanity.

O'REILLY: It was a bold, fresh piece of Hugh mean.

GLENN: This is all about you and so you talk about your childhood and growing up and everything else. I was surprised at, because we grew up in different times and different parts of the country. I was surprised at how much Levittown was every town USA.

O'REILLY: That's what everybody says to me. That's the universal appeal of the book, that I think I take you from a journey from Elvis Presley to the Beatles to the age of Aquarius, Vietnam era, to the Seventies and the disco time right up to now, and the experience that I had I think are universal to many Americans, at least you'll see some part of your life in it. And the reason I wrote the book was because a lot of people, you know, watch The Factor and they get torqued off about my opinions and they like them or they don't like them or whatever, but they always ask, well, how did you arrive at that conclusion, how did you find that particular point of view. And so I said, look, you know, let me explain, let me explain who my father was, let me explain what I learned teaching high school, let me explain what I learned playing football.

GLENN: I tell you, I read the part where you were talking about, you know, race and racism.

O'REILLY: Yeah.

GLENN: And I feel exactly the same way you do. It didn't -- I mean, I don't even, I don't understand it. It never played a role in my life. I grew up in Seattle. So I never even saw the things that you saw, but I never really understood it. When we're coming to this election, do you really believe that America is the country where -- I'm not talking about, you know, that 2% or 5% on both sides that will cancel each other out. That we're really a country that we're like, oh, he's black; I can't vote for him. Or, he's black; I've got to vote for him?

O'REILLY: Well, I think there's some of that. I think it cancels it.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: You know, they cancel each other out. But there are people who live their life in a racial prism.

GLENN: Right. But I think that's a small minority. Everybody is saying this is going to be decided by race. I don't think that's who we are.

O'REILLY: No, I agree. I mean, but the race hustlers.

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: Are using that. So if Obama loses, you'll hear that, you know, moments after, if McCain wins it will be racism. That's what the -- but that's how they make a living. I mean, these people, they sell that as a product. And if you -- you know, there are some very nervous people in the race hustler world because if Obama does win, their whole industry collapses. Then what can they say then? So, yeah, you're right. I mean, it's not the folks that drive this, although there are prejudice people in America. There's no doubt, on both sides. But there is an industry of racism in America.

GLENN: Going back to Levittown, I think this is the problem that we have, one of the problems that we have in America. I think it's one of the things that Sarah Palin has going for her. When I read your book, I see my childhood in it. I see the same experiences that I had, many of them, but I will tell you this. I don't see that in Washington. I don't see this, I don't see this -- these people go to Washington and they just turn into these alien life forms.

O'REILLY: It's almost the same thing about the media. It's almost exactly the same. When you get to New York or Los Angeles in the media, you might come in as a regular person, but you don't leave that way because you're hanging around with people who have a jaundiced view of the world. Most of the time they're arrogant people, "We're smarter than everybody else." That's what you get in Washington. Once you get into there, you don't see any regular folks anymore. It's all about calculation, how can I get reelected, how can I get more power, what do I have to do to get this passed or that passed. So they lose sight of why they are there in the first place and they become involved in the game, and it's exactly the same as the media. So you are right, you are absolutely right. And that's the problem in America, we need more people whose first priority are the folks, not their own careers. And I see -- I mean, the bailout is the best example it is. I mean, we weren't warned and all these people knew it was coming down the pike and nobody said anything? I mean, that's just crazy.

GLENN: In the book you have a chapter, Stand for Something. You talk about, you know, how your mom and dad were different kind of people. You know, they grew up in the Depression, et cetera, et cetera and, you know, it's where you kind of get your, you know, stand up against the bullies and the underdog spirit, et cetera, et cetera. But wasn't yesterday really the day that you wanted to vomit all over your shoes with people who, you know, either said I can't -- or, I'm voting for this because the party is pressuring me into voting for it, or I'm voting against it because I'm being challenged; or, I'm not voting for it because Nancy Pelosi said some bad things? I mean, where is the spine of people?

O'REILLY: I don't know where the vision of people. When I hear some of these people explain their votes, I'm just going to myself, "Look, everybody acknowledges that this is a fiasco." I mean, who's happy about this? Even the far left loons aren't happy about this. Although I think Michael Moore is finding a way to be happy. But, you know, you've got to look at the damage being done to elderly people's retirement funds and to people trying to put college, kids through college and you've got to say to yourself, look, it's not good, it isn't what the federal government should be doing, but we have to stop the bleeding in order to heal the patient. And that's my point of view and, you know, I've convinced Newt Gingrich who was against this in the beginning, he is now reluctantly supporting it because of our long conversation with him and he's an honest man. I said, listen, Newt, look, there are people going to go down here. Their whole lives are going to be destroyed here. And the federal government got us into this mess by not providing oversight on the gangs terse on Wall Street and they've got to get us out. So I think he heard me and now he's changed and hopefully we'll get this thing done by Thursday.

GLENN: You might want to talk to him again because I may have changed him back. Sorry to thwart you on that one. Charlie Rangel, Barney Frank, you had -- when was John Kerry on? Last night?

O'REILLY: Yes.

GLENN: Just had a call, last night. And he's talking about the Republicans -- 

O'REILLY: That was ridiculous.

GLENN: Why is no one in the media holding Charlie Rangel's or Barney Frank's to the fire?

O'REILLY: I'm going to take care of Frank tonight. That's our target tonight. Look, I said from the very beginning it's bogus and it is and there's enough blame to go around for everybody.

GLENN: Yep.

O'REILLY: But Frank has now stepped over the line. I'm going to have to deal with him tonight. I'm not going to tell you what we're going to do but Frank gets his tonight. He is in the No Spin Zone.

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly, the name of the book is A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity.

O'REILLY: I just want to say one thing. If you liked Glenn Beck's book, and I did, you'll like this book.

GLENN: You didn't even open the cover. You didn't even open the cover.

O'REILLY: I read it. I read it cover to cover. I enjoyed it very much. Very witty.

GLENN: This isn't technically the No Spin Zone.

O'REILLY: I'm not a weasel. You know me. I would never say it if I didn't read it.

GLENN: Thank you, sir. Bye.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.

DECODING the Democrats' EXTENSIVE ties to 'Big Tech'

The Democrats' ties to "Big Tech" and the entertainment industry have placed them in the perfect position to influence both public policy and our nation's culture. It's impossible to unweave the entire web of Democrat operatives and sleeper cells, but here are a few of the current ties between the Dems and an industry that arguably has more influence on our day-to-day lives than any other.

    When I first talked about all the problems with mail-in voting two months ago, I said the last thing we want to see is voting rules getting changed so close to an election. Yet, that is exactly what is happening right now across the nation.

    And in almost every case, Democrats are fighting to get rid of simple, common sense safeguards like requiring a witness signature, or requiring that a voter's signature on a mail-in ballot matches their signature on file. It's really an insane effort to change the rules in the middle of the game. And the effort is still going strong even though we're less than three weeks from Election Day.

    Remember how mail-in voting is supposed to save the Republic? If that doesn't sit well with you or make sense to you, you are not alone. Start the video below at the 2:04 mark and see what reassurances Abrams shares.

    "We must adapt to how we conduct our elections?!" That's practically been the Democrats' motto for 2020. Don't like the results you get from regular old-fashioned elections? Let's just create some new "norms" for voting. I mean it's been on their to-do list forever anyway and COVID is the perfect opportunity to finally get it done.

    So, how is that "adapting to new norms" thing going? Well, I'm glad I asked. Because it's the perfect time to welcome you to the inaugural Chaoscar Awards, recognizing achievements in mail-in voting chaos.

    For example, the "Every Vote Matters" Chaoscar award goes to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania where the FBI found nine discarded military ballots in a dumpster.

    The Letter from U.S. Attorney David Freed to the Luzerne County Bureau of Elections says:

    The FBI has recovered a number of documents relating to military ballots that had been improperly opened by your elections staff, and had the ballots removed and discarded…

    The FBI also found additional absentee ballot envelopes that were empty, so who knows where those ballots went.

    But wait, Stacey Abrams told us mail-in voting is safe and secure! Secure? Well, maybe not if you're in the military and sending your ballot to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

    The "It Takes Two to Tango" Chaoscar goes to Fairfax County, Virginia for mailing duplicate absentee ballots to 1,400 voters.

    But don't worry, election officials have it all under control. They say only one of the ballots will be counted — unless you're a Democrat. Okay, they didn't really say that, but they were probably thinking it. Officials blamed a printer problem and said people should destroy their duplicate ballot. Or, they could just send it to our next Chaoscar winner — Texas mayoral candidate Zul Mohamed.

    He was arrested last week on voter fraud charges after applying for 84 absentee ballots and having them sent to a P.O. box that allegedly belongs to a nursing home.

    Nice try.

    Next, the "You've Got No Mail" Chaoscar goes to Outagamie County, Wisconsin. Three trays of mail, which included multiple absentee ballots, were discovered in a ditch along a state highway.

    Does no one bury anything anymore? If you want to get rid of ballots, why are you using dumpsters and ditches?

    New York City wins the "G.I. Schmo" Chaoscar for sending voters mail-in ballots marked for military use.

    That's right, New Yorkers who have never served in the military have received the ballot, which says "Official Military Absentee Ballot."

    Maybe there was supposed to be a slash between the words "military" and "absentee," but voters are obviously confused and concerned about whether they're supposed to go ahead and use the ballot even though they're not in the military.

    Over 520,000 ballots have already been sent out and the New York Elections Board does not know how many of those have the error.

    The 'Every Vote Matters' Chaoscar goes to...

    We hop over to New Jersey for our next award — the "Dumpster Diver" Chaoscar goes to a mailman who has been arrested for allegedly tossing 1,875 of pieces of mail — including 99 election ballots — into a dumpster.

    What was that Stacey Abrams? I forgot...

    Next, New York City wins its second Chaoscar of the night — it's the "You Had One Job" award for sending out 140,000 absentee ballots to Brooklyn voters with the wrong names and addresses.

    These voters are supposed to complete their ballot and put it inside the official absentee ballot envelope, then sign the outside of the envelope and send it in. But these return envelopes have the wrong name and address, so voters cannot sign them unless they want their ballot to be voided.

    Many voters do not even have the right name on the ballot itself.

    And this is great — the New York Board of Elections says a "printing error" is responsible for the bad ballots. Wow — really, a printing error? Gee, how did they ever solve that mystery?

    One report on this said:

    It was unclear exactly how the city planned to handle voters who had already mailed their completed ballot back in the provided envelopes.

    That is a huge red flag, because it's exactly the kind of issue that will help fuel chaos and endless litigation all over America after Election Day.

    Next, the "I See Dead People Voting" Chaoscar goes to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for its new temporary rules allowing dead people's votes to count.

    Before this year, Massachusetts allowed early voting to start ten days before the election. If you voted early and died before Election Day, sorry, your vote would not count.

    But Massachusetts changed the rules this year because of the pandemic. Now early voting starts 30 days before Election Day. And if you cast your vote during this early window, and then kick the bucket before November 3, you can rest in total peace knowing your vote will still count!

    America — land of opportunity, even after you're dead.

    Our final Chaoscar of the night is the "It's So Crazy It Just Might Work" special achievement award, which goes to Houston, Texas. This is for an alleged ballot harvesting and voter fraud operation that — if the allegations prove to be true — dwarfs any election-related fraud we've seen anywhere so far this year.

    Two private investigators — one a former FBI agent, the other a former Houston police captain — filed sworn affidavits with the Texas Supreme Court as part of a class-action lawsuit against Harris County.

    This is a copy of the lawsuit and I want to quote directly from it, so you understand what the specific allegations are:

    Licensed Private Investigators... have been investigating ballot harvesting in Harris County for many months...
    The organization and operation of the illegal harvesting program is being used to commit fraud in the November 3, 2020 election...

    According to the investigators, witnesses have identified Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis... and Texas State Senator Borris Miles as leading the organization tasked with harvesting ballots. The investigators further state that witnesses have identified Houston businessman Gerald Womack and political consultant Dallas Jones as lieutenants working directly under Commissioner Ellis and Senator Miles.

    By the way, in September, Dallas Jones was hired by the Joe Biden campaign to be its Texas Political Director.

    This is a copy of the affidavit from one of the private investigators, Mark Aguirre. He says:

    I have in my possession video-taped interviews of witnesses attesting to the aforementioned people having groups of people completing thousands of absentee and mail-in ballots, including completing ballots for deceased individuals; illegally going into nursing homes, with the complicity of the nursing home staff, and filling out and forging the signatures of nursing home residents; signing up homeless individuals to vote using the ballot harvester's address then completing the ballot and forging the homeless individual's signature.

    And this is from the affidavit of the second private investigator. He says:

    [One] witness stated to me that an employee of Commissioner Ellis, Tyler James, has bragged that he could guarantee that the illegal ballot harvesting operation, with the help of mass mail-in ballots, could harvest 700,000 illegal ballots.

    Democrats successfully created chaos and now they're working overtime to change voting rules across the nation, taking advantage of friendly courts and judges to legislate from the bench. It's all about election insurance, tweaking the state voting systems to make Joe Biden's path to victory easier, including — in many states — rigging the ballot.

    While Big Tech, the Democrats and the media insist mail-in voting is safe and secure, it's already going off the rails in many states and uncovers the left-wing forces behind the massive litigation war being waged by Democrats to permanently change the way you vote.


    Democrats are freaked out about Amy Coney Barrett joining the Supreme Court. But don't let their fretting fool you, because as Glenn Beck reveals, the Left is doing just fine in the federal and state courts. In fact, the Left is thriving.

    Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn shows how Democrats successfully created chaos with their massive push for mail-in voting. Now they're working overtime to change voting rules across the nation, taking advantage of friendly courts and judges to legislate from the bench. It's all about election insurance, tweaking the state voting systems to make Joe Biden's path to victory easier – including, in many states, rigging the ballot.

    While Big Tech, Democrats, and the media insist mail-in voting is trustworthy and there's nothing to see here, Glenn exposes how mail-in voting is already going off the rails in many states and uncovers the left-wing forces behind the massive litigation war being waged by Democrats to permanently change the way you vote.
