Glenn Beck: The Blueprint



The Blueprint: Obama's Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency (Buy)

GLENN: Ken Blackwell is with us. Ken Blackwell has a book out called The Blueprint: Obama's Plan to Subvert the Constitution. Now, Ken, that seems, quite honestly that seems a little harsh just to put that in the title. Ken was the UN ambassador, served on the UN Human Rights Commission and was a mayor and then Ohio Secretary of State. Ken, why the hate? Do you hate Obama just because of his race?

BLACKWELL: I tell you what, Glenn. Just listening to your opening, your opening of this show.

GLENN: Yeah.

BLACKWELL: I think he expects us to shut down our brains, suspend disbelief, and buy into the fantasy narrative that he puts out there and tries to force feed us. Look, the Constitution is the fundamental charter of freedom in this country and it is under direct assault by Team Obama.

GLENN: What do you think, what do you think of Kagan? Kagan won't even, she won't answer any questions like, "Hey, you know, do you think it's unconstitutional to ban books?"

BLACKWELL: Well, look. We know and we play out in the blueprint, Ken Klukowski and I, that President Obama wants to transform our market economy into a government control economy. He wants to transform our family centered society into a government centered society, and the Constitution is in his way. So he has to pack the court, both the Supreme Court and the appellate courts across the country, with those folks who are steeped in positive law, they don't believe in natural law, they don't believe in the transcendent values that underlie all of our founding documents, and they want to do this in order to change the Constitution, interpret it in a way that's their game plan. And so she's not going to — she's not going to lay out, you know, what the game plan is. She's going to hide, even though she said that, you know, nominees shouldn't behind, you know, just generalities and smiles. At the end of the day, what they want to do is to pack the courts with folks who believe as Goodwin Luke articulated that anybody that believes in originalism and the fundamental thought that the Constitution means what it says should not be fit to serve on the court. And what we're seeing now is a political lawyer. That's what she is. She is a political lawyer. She has very little litigation experience, she has not set on the bench. She has been a political lawyer, and what she is determined to do with her fellow justices once they hit the majority is to drive us to a Constitution that would be unrecognizable by the frame — its original framers.

GLENN: How long do you think we have, Ken? How long do you think we have before you just can't — I mean, I'm very concerned. I think they are going to be routed this November. And then you've got a lame duck congress and a president who has already offered special favors and special jobs and everything else if you just "play ball with me." If you've just been thrown out of congress, the president calls you up and says, hey, why don't you be an ambassador for me, but I need you to really — I need your help on this, what stops them from just passing every Christmas present under the tree?

BLACKWELL: Well, I tell you, I think that in the grand scheme of things, we have about three more years before we are on almost irreducible and irreversible track of socialism and collectivism. I think that we have a Battle Royale in front of us to change the composition of congress, to put a brake on this mad dash, but I tell you, the most dangerous period in the short term is going to be the potential lame duck congress. And that means that they are going to go, everything that they can, up against a wall to see what sticks out of desperation. You know, one of their key strategists, Stan Greenberg said, look, our job is to complete middle class entitlements and when you do that, you create a voter base that will consistently support you and your vision in the future. That's what they are doing. They are just growing government at an alarming rate. What we lay out in The Blueprint is that a decade ago, yes, government spending was about 34% of GDP. In Europe it was about 48%. Today in the U.S. Government spending is about 4 — a little under 41% of GDP and in Europe it's about 47. So they've come down a notch in Europe and we've accelerated in a mad dash towards European style socialism.

GLENN: We — I have seen a stat that shows that we were the second most free economy in the world two years ago. We're now — or three years ago. We're now number seven, and the projection is that in two years we could be number twenty as the freest economy in the world. That's staggering for America.

BLACKWELL: It really is, Glenn. Look, we have become a culture where earning money doesn't entitle you to it but wanting money does. That is the creed of the redistributionist elite that are an integral part of Team Obama that are actually trying to remake the economic foundations of the country.

Back in February of 2009, Newsweek magazine ran that cover story that was entitled We're All Socialists Now. Well, the heck we are, but they are depending on Americans to be so hooked on government spending and entitlements that they will, by default.

GLENN: Yeah.

BLACKWELL: — you know, support this radical transformation of our economy and, you know, we have to constantly put a stop to it. I mean, people who read, you know, the 5,000 Year Leap, they understand that this is the most prosperous, the most diverse, the most Democratic country, the freest country on the face of the Earth, and we've done it in 234 years, but nothing is guaranteed. And we say in our book, Ken Klukowski and I, that this is not a secret, it is not accidental. It is being acted upon in accordance with a plan, a blueprint.

GLENN: The name of the book, by the way, is The Blueprint: Obama's Plan. And, you know, just looking at the introduction, it has the definition of subvert, to undermine or erode, especially with regards to character, principle, or allegiance to, to ruin or corrupt. I think you are going to find this book fascinating. The Blueprint: Obama's Plan by Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski. I don't see a price on it. What is it? It's probably like $20 or $15, but it could be worse. It could be $47,000.

BLACKWELL: Right.

GLENN: So if you want to use Obama's Racine comments yesterday.

Okay, Ken, thank you so much. God bless you, man.

BLACKWELL: God bless you. Always good to be with you.

GLENN: Ken Blackwell, The Blueprint: Obama's Plan. All right. Going to take a quick break here.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
