Glenn Beck: A good guy in Washington?

Congressman Chaffetz from Utah

GLENN: We have a guy who -- I don't know if he's a refounder or not because they don't tell me who the refounders are. He should be a refounder. Jason Chaffetz is a Congressman in Washington DC. He's from Utah and he's one guy who gets it and is always on the front line fighting for the right things. He has been helping us on the freedom of information to be able to find out what the hell is going on with Freddie and Fannie, especially in relations to the cap and trade business and the climate exchange, the Chicago climate exchange. Jason, Congressman, welcome to the problem

CHAFFETZ: Hey, thanks for having me on, Glenn.

GLENN: You are introducing a bill today?

CHAFFETZ: Today, yes.

GLENN: What is it?

CHAFFETZ: It's called the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack Transparency Act of 2010 and what it would allow us to do is issue FOIA, the freedom of information requests that the public can ask for, members of Congress, anybody can ask for to get the documents that are within Fannie and Freddie. Amazingly enough, they don't believe that they're subject to the questions -- even as a member of Congress, I'm on oversight government reform, I'm a ranking member and they won't answer my questions. So, we're going to have to change the law.

GLENN: And why do they say that?

CHAFFETZ: Well, I love this quote from this letter. You know, they're subject now to the Federal Housing Finance Agency and their general counsel, this Alfred Pollard, sent me a letter --

GLENN: Wait just a second. Hold on, hold on, hold on. Somebody in the watchdog community, do your research on -- what's his name?

CHAFFETZ: Alfred M. Pollard, P-o-l-l-a-r-d.

GLENN: And he's currently with whom?

CHAFFETZ: He is the general counsel for the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

GLENN: Find out what his connections are, find out where he came from and tweet that to us.

CHAFFETZ: I would love to know. I would love to know.

GLENN: Go ahead.

CHAFFETZ: All right. So, he sends me a letter and I'm asking for information specifically about Franklin Raines and what they are doing with -- what in the world they were doing getting passed for cap and trade issues, but he said by his determination it, quote, would be costly, burdensome and potentially unproductive, end quote. So, he's decided unilaterally that even though I'm requesting it as a member of Congress, he is not going to provide me any documents.

GLENN: Costly and unproductive?

CHAFFETZ: And burdensome.

GLENN: And burdensome. Well, I hate to burden them. They're already burdened enough with $1 trillion worth of debt. Jason, what have you find out on the outlet lock that they have the patent on?

CHAFFETZ: Well, they say in this letter that, oh, this is just a guy on staff and they were using it to try to make sure that it doesn't, you know -- it doesn't allow surges on computers. Well, bologna. I went, they went so far to get all their attorneys engaged and they went and got these patents and what it does is it allows you to take an individual unit, you can go up to the actual outlet and it says it's for home. It doesn't say it's for business.

GLENN: Right.

CHAFFETZ: And they go into their home and they can actually turn off your energy so you -- literally it locks down your energy in your home and the concern that some of us have is that if they're pursuing cap and trade, this would allow them to also go and say, do you know what, you've used to much energy this month, you're not going to be able to access the very outlet that's in your home.

GLENN: I mean, you are such a conspiracy theorist. By the way, have you purchased The Overton Window? It's available at book stores everywhere today. The conspiracy here is that you -- that that would ever happen, but if you look at all of the facts, cap and trade is done by all of the usual suspects through the carbon climate exchange. What they're doing is they're trying to sell communities and people this new technology, for instance, Van Jones says we're going to have criminals come out of prison and then they'll start making solar panels. Then they'll sell them to individuals. So you in your home, what they'll say is for your savings, you just pay us the difference on what your energy bill is now, you pay us how much you're saving and give us that money and we'll put all of the technology in your house. So, they go into your house, they put the technology of the solar panels in, they change your outlets, et cetera, et cetera. That's one piece of the technology they own the patent on. The second piece is the way to measure the carbon that you are burning in your home. Then they come at the end of the month and they say, okay, great. Energy cost is this. You know, you would have paid -- you would have paid this without this technology. So, pay us 10% of the difference. That's how they get paid, but if you don't pay, if you -- if something happens or if you use too much energy, this outlet can only be opened with a special tool that only they have the patent to. So, if they lock down your outlets, how do you get electricity?

CHAFFETZ: I love what they say. This is what Alfred Pollard wrote to me just on June 7th. He said, quote, the device prevent unauthorized or unqualified personnel from connecting equipment to outlets such as vacuum cleaners or heaters which may cause circuit overload, tripped circuit breakers and result in the loss of alteration of data residing on the computer systems powered by the same electrical network.

GLENN: Excuse me. When did we have a -- when did we have an outbreak -- why is Fannie Mae or Freddie Mack, why are they all of a sudden concerned about my circuit breakers in my home if my wife plugs in the vacuum?

CHAFFETZ: Well, she may be unqualified or unauthorized. You know --

GLENN: This is ridiculous.

CHAFFETZ: We smile and we laugh but at the same time, I take this very seriously because you have one of these very large organizations going out and getting a patent for this. What in the world were they thinking about whether they went and did this?

GLENN: You know what they were -- wait, wait. You know what they were thinking. This was Franklin Raines, one of the biggest -- he is -- and stop me if you disagree with this, Jason, but he is only next to -- what's the guy who's doing prison now? -- Bernie Madoff in scams. $90 billion in bonus money because he went and inflated all of the earnings. This guy should be in jail but because he has so many favors and so many friends, that he didn't go to jail, he just had to pay some of it back. The guy cooked the books at Freddie and Fannie. He's part of the whole climate exchange and, also, which goes down to emerald cities, which is all labor unions and leftist think tanks and they're the ones that are going to be installing the new outlets, the new carbon measuring in your home, and the new solar panels. Congratulations.

CHAFFETZ: Well, we have to get this bill passed, because the American people, the media, you know, members of Congress, we have to be able to look at the records in Fannie and Freddie. They're in conservatorship as of September 2008. We're on the lines of nearly a trillion dollars. We deserve to be able to look through their records and their correspondence.

GLENN: Real quick, do people need to do anything? Do they need to call or is this going to pass or what?

CHAFFETZ: Well, yeah. We're going to need to get them fired up. You can go to jasoninthehouse.com. I'll have information up there. We've got it out on americaspeakingout.com and we'll get a bill number and get it introduced. I'm thankful to ranking member Lamar Smith out of Texas, ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, and Darrell Issa. We're going to keep going.

GLENN: All right. Let me ask you real quick. You were on hand with Wiener when he was attacked by a goat. We're very concerned. Is he going to be okay?

CHAFFETZ: I think he'll be all right.

GLENN: All right. Why were you doing a press conference with a goat and more importantly, why would you do a press conference with Wiener?

CHAFFETZ: You don't think two goats and a guy named Anthony Wiener is a formula for success? Come on.

GLENN: Jason, thank you very much. We'll talk to you again. All right. There are good guys in Washington and Jason Chaffetz is one of them.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
