Glenn talks with Scott Baker of Breitbart TV




Scott Baker from Breitbart TV

GLENN: All right. So Scott, help me out on, we talked about Scott is from Breitbart TV. Help me out on exactly what you're looking at and take us through the path as easily as you can here.

BAKER: Absolutely. Let's go back to the beginning.

GLENN: Okay. We were looking

BAKER: In the beginning.

GLENN: And the reason we were starting this conversation is because of Van Jones. How did this guy get into office? How did Valerie Jarrett, she said she had been following. Is she a radical? Who is Valerie Jarrett in the White House?

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: What is her connection to all of this?

BAKER: I think we all started to think is this guy just a goof ball, you know, but I really paid attention to the words that Charles Krauthammer said a week ago on Fox News. He said this Van Jones debacle is a reflection of the boss, and the boss' radical relationships over decades. And, you know, you say how did this guy become, using Krauthammer's words, perfectly mainstream to them. Because clearly, I mean, if you are out there and you're saying, you know, I believe Bush may have helped create 9/11, there are radicals.

GLENN: Right. But these guys, these guys don't think that they are I think they were shocked. What? He's fine. I mean, you see it from the lefty blogs and the Huffington Post. You see it from the Center of American Progress. They immediately embraced him like, come on, man, come in, the water's fine.

BAKER: I think Chuck Todd over at MSNBC last night said we didn't cover this because it really wasn't important. He was number 600 down the list of importance.

GLENN: Not true.

BAKER: And do you know why the New York Times didn't cover it?

GLENN: No, I didn't.

BAKER: They actually wrote about it in the paper why they didn't cover it. Do you know why?

GLENN: Oh, they were understaffed.

BAKER: Vacations.

GLENN: Vacations, yeah.

BAKER: They were understaffed because of vacations.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

BAKER: So when I

GLENN: Talk about understaffed, how about your staff and my staff?

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: All of us, there's a few of us that are trying to carry the water for the entire media. But anyway.

BAKER: Anyway, you know, Liz and I are just two people at Breitbart TV, you know, we've done 22,000 hand selected video posts in two years that have done over 100 million hits.

GLENN: Have you really?

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: Holy cow.

BAKER: Nothing automated. All, you know, hand done. So here, so this was

GLENN: Can't you get some like El Salvadorian underage children?

BAKER: Now that I know you can do that.

GLENN: I know. There's got to be some organization that can help you. Anyway, let's go on.

BAKER: Right. So anyway and it was research that I was doing but this was a lot, again, research from the people, right?

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Sending stuff to you, sending stuff to me. And we looked at Valerie Jarrett. I knew that she was an important figure. Kind of like one of those Karen Hughes/Karl Rove figures, close to the president but kind of I mean, we hear Karl a lot now.

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: But you really didn't hear Karl interviewed while he was at the White House, right? Nor did you hear Karen Hughes. Their fingerprints were over all kinds of things. And so just using her kind of as a case study, we went back and said, I know that she was a lawyer and a businesswoman back in Chicago and had an interest in real estate development. And then you start to realize, well, that wasn't happenstance. She wasn't just, oh, I like buildings. Her grandfather was very important in Chicago housing. In fact, one of the big housing, public housing projects was named after him.

GLENN: Okay. So her grandfather was big into public housing.

BAKER: Yes, exactly. Now, her mother, Barbara Bowman, was very into education, a childhood education expert.

GLENN: Hang on. Listen to this carefully.

BAKER: And she

GLENN: Mom is an education expert.

BAKER: Right. And on all, you know, very progressive causes as you might expect.

GLENN: No, really. Housing, public housing king and education expert mate and have a child.

BAKER: Grandfather and then here's the mother, and she starts this group called the Erikson Institute and which is a childhood, you know, organization, childhood education organization. Now, any good public, you know, service organization needs a board, and so you look. And who was the chairman of the board of the Erikson Institute? Turns out that it was the CEO of Consolidated Edison, big executive kind of like the godfather of Chicago politics.

GLENN: Con Ed.

BAKER: Con Ed, a guy names Thomas Ayers and he was on a lot of boards

GLENN: Hold it, hold it, hold it. The mom who has this giant education idea.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: She has she starts a foundation run by, what was his name?

BAKER: Thomas Ayers was Thomas Ayers, yeah.

GLENN: Huh. Thomas Ayers. Did he have a child? Did he mate with anybody and have a child?

BAKER: You know, he did actually.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Had two kids. One of them we don't know that much.

GLENN: Sure. Did any of the children go on to do anything explosive?

BAKER: Let me check. Bill maybe, Bill.

GLENN: Bill Ayers. Wow, okay.

BAKER: Bill was in there, too.

GLENN: Okay. So Valerie Jarrett's mother

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Starts an organization, and the chair of that is Bill Ayers. Wow.

PAT: Dad, right?

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: Bill Ayers' dad.

BAKER: Yeah, Bill Ayers' dad.

GLENN: Yeah, Bill Ayers' dad.

BAKER: In fact, I went to Wheaton College right outside of Chicago and it was right next to Glen Ellyn, Illinois which is right next to where Thomas Ayers grew up and I just kind of always had thought that Bill Ayers may have been the rebellious kid that ran away from the executive family.

GLENN: Hey, my dad is a big power broker; I want to blow up Pentagon.

BAKER: But dad knows

GLENN: Happens all the time.

BAKER: Yeah, right. In fact, while he is over trying to blow up the Pentagon, dad's running a nuclear reactor. No worries.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

BAKER: Turns out dad's a progressive, too. So the and Valerie Jarrett's father is interesting. James Bowman, a doctor who was working for the U.S. in a program in Iran. In fact, Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran and lived there for the first five years of her life.

GLENN: Hold it. Hold it. I'm sorry. What?

BAKER: Yeah. She was born in Shiraz, Iran, which is a great wine. I don't know

GLENN: Shiraz?

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: I believe that's from Australia.

BAKER: Could be, right.

GLENN: I'm only an alcoholic. So what do I know.

BAKER: Look, we would need a separate show to deal with James Bowman.

GLENN: Sure. So wait, wait. Dad, doctor, washing for the government in Iran.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: She's born in Iran from the mom who is big in education and starts this charity.

BAKER: Or foundation.

GLENN: Foundation that is run by Bill Ayers' father. Got it, okay, okay.

BAKER: And you know what? They call Valerie Jarrett kind of Chicago royalty, right? So in our little construct we're making her the princess.

GLENN: Okay.

BAKER: And we're making Thomas Ayers, let's call him the king. He will be the king.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Before we I mean, there couldn't have been generations of extremists.

BAKER: That's it. This is all we found. We're done.

GLENN: Okay. Hang on. Somehow or another I feel he's lying. Coming up in just a second.

(OUT 11:42)

GLENN: From WLS in Chicago today, Charlie Gibson was on LS, and he was asked a question about why haven't you covered the ACORN workers caught on tape helping a woman get a house to set up a brothel. Gibson said, quote: I didn't know about the story. It's now been confirmed. Later in the interview Charlie Gibson from ABC, asked if he attended the rally in D.C. this weekend, Gibson said, I was, quote, sailing in Maine over the weekend, end quote.

PAT: Sailing takes me away, too, to where I was

GLENN: No, I believe that was Christopher Cross. It was a bad song from the 1980s but let's not go there.

Okay. So Scott Baker, we have Scott Baker with us. He is from Breitbart TV. Scott, you are trying to piece together this twisted story of how did Barack Obama become who he is. We now have Valerie Jarrett, best friend of Barack Obama, and Michelle Obama.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Her mother is somebody who started a foundation all about education.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: It was run by William Ayers' father.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: William Ayers, is there any doubt in our mind that Valerie Jarrett and William Ayers know each other, or that Valerie Jarrett is completely clear on who William Ayers is and what he did?

BAKER: Here's something I haven't told you yet.

GLENN: Oh.

BAKER: Recently, like just a couple of years ago Valerie Jarrett's mother served on a board with Bernardine Dohrn. Now, that's another name I'm throwing into the mix here. Do you remember that one? Oh, that's Bill Ayers' wife.

GLENN: That's Bill Ayers' wife.

BAKER: Exactly. She, by the way, is a law professor at Northwestern even though she doesn't have a license to practice law. I don't know how you get that job except oh, wait a minute. Thomas Ayers was the chairman of the board of trustees at Northwestern University.

GLENN: Wow.

BAKER: All connected. Now, here. Let me take it one other step, right? Because you said how far back does it go. Well, what you find first of all, you know, Valerie Jarrett, that's her married name or her she later got divorced and her husband since died. But the Jarrett name came from, well, Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett's a legendary figure in Chicago, pioneering black journalist, and

GLENN: So he's a good guy.

BAKER: You know, he did he started the National Association of Black Journalists. But when you go way back.

GLENN: Way back.

BAKER: In the Forties when he was writing for the Chicago Defender and he was working with causes that, you know, clearly were if not dominated by active communists, very communist related causes. In fact, he served on committees to help the packing workers. And as we were looking at this and looking at saying, you know, he's writing at the Defender, he's working on this committee. Then we noticed another name there.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

BAKER: And this is where things really started to come together.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

BAKER: Because when you realize that also writing at the Defender, also serving on the committee for the packing workers, in fact on the same subcommittee, the publicity committee was chaired by Vernon Jarrett and one of the members was a guy named Frank Marshall Davis.

PAT: Not mentor Frank.

BAKER: Mentor Frank, yeah, exactly.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I thought he was in the Hawaii.

BAKER: Back when he was in Chicago, he was very active. He's a poet, a writer, a writer of erotic fiction, just a really varied guy.

GLENN: Yeah. Communist, too.

BAKER: Yeah, self admitted pedophile, a group sex fan, a lot of things.

GLENN: Self admitted pedophile?

BAKER: Yeah. And

GLENN: Self admit

PAT: He admitted that?

BAKER: He did. He wrote a book about it and said that the stories were fictionalized but were all based on real encounters that he had.

PAT: Yikes.

BAKER: So now he's off in Hawaii and who shows up but the very young Barack Obama.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Is it true that Barack Obama's mom was also taken by her grandparents to the Seattle area to go to a school, I believe it was in Bellevue that is, if I'm not mistaken, was known as the Little Red Schoolhouse.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: In during the McCarthy era, that they moved to the Seattle area to put her into a radicalized communist school. Is that true?

BAKER: That is a very fair assessment. And, in fact, the conclusion I take out of this is generally we can assume that people from the Seattle area are a little bit twisted.

GLENN: Yeah, as being from the Seattle area, yeah, that's absolutely I was the only normal one there.

BAKER: So, yeah. In fact, they

PAT: I don't think that was the allegation really.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: No, I don't think so.

GLENN: No, I no.

BAKER: So they off in Hawaii now. And remember, the poor kid, here's Barack Obama, you know, abandoned by his father, he's been off in Indonesia with his stepfather.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Didn't Barack Obama's dad leave the family to go to a radical communist run school, college in Manhattan?

BAKER: There yes. In fact, he was the new school, there were offers from both.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, I'm sorry.

BAKER: And I just, I'm watching your clock. So I want to do two things. We could do a week on this. But the point is

GLENN: Don't shut us down before

BAKER: When you wait, that's Mark Lloyd coming down the hallway.

GLENN: There he is. So anyway.

BAKER: So here's young Barack Obama, and his grandfather, you know, is taking him over to old Frank's house. He writes about this in his book Dreams of my Father. And they shared drinks, they would have the young Barack Obama write dirty limericks.

GLENN: That's what my grandpa used to do.

PAT: Yeah, memories.

GLENN: Sure.

BAKER: And Obama, you know, even notes that later when he's a community organizer, a young politician in Chicago, he would walk the streets and the neighborhoods where Frank Marshall Davis walked. And these are wistful sections of the book.

GLENN: When he comes back to Chicago or comes to Chicago, does he meet with Valerie Jarrett right away? How do they meet?

BAKER: Oh, did I mention Valerie Jarrett helped his fiancé, Barack Obama's fiancé Michelle get her first job working in politics in the mayor's office there? Yeah, she did. So what you see in all of this

PAT: Wow.

BAKER: is that there is a long history and connection. In fact, when you look even at Van Jones, one of the things that we looked at that Pam Key over at Naked Emporer News turned up was that Van Jones spoke in 1998 at a conference in Chicago, was the first Black Radical Congress who Jeremiah Wright was also a speaker.

GLENN: Oh, wow.

BAKER: This was on the University of Chicago Illinois campus where Bill Ayers was teaching.

GLENN: And Barack Obama was teaching, yeah.

BAKER: Well, Obama was at University of Chicago.

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry.

BAKER: Now, we don't know if Obama attended that event but it was all 2,000 people and they were all community activists. So he mighta, you know, a little bit. But two years four years later he does speak on a panel with Bill Ayers that was moderated by the Black Radical Congress and, you know, at some point if you say I don't want to be Jeff Foxworthy but if you call yourself the Black Radical Congress, if you call yourself a radical, you might be a radical.

GLENN: Well, you might. Who are you why do you hate people that are from Chicago so much? Why do you hate people that are different than you?

BAKER: Listen, I lived in Chicago. I went to college there. I worked in politics there.

GLENN: So you say.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: Send me everything you have on Scott Baker. Send it all to me so I can expose him.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: All right. Thank you very much for lining this out and sincerely thank you both for everything that you've done. You are there are very few people that are really truly on the stories that need to be, and I know how risky it is. And I know how many late nights and how much stuff you have to sort through to be able to get to it with a very small staff. Thank you. You are doing the country a service.

BAKER: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: Breitbart TV. Back in a second.

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.
