Glenn Beck: 'Sweetie'

Barack Obama’s Pitch in Kentucky

GLENN: To complain about stuff. So let me complain, let me complain about Mr. Barack Obama. I find it absolutely amazing that Barack Obama is going after the evangelicals in Kentucky with a poster that says "Faith, hope, change, Barack Obama for President." And then it says a quote from him: "My faith teaches me that I can sit in church and pray all I want, but I won't be fulfilling God's will unless I go out and do the Lord's work, Barack Obama." Can you imagine if a conservative would have said that? Can you imagine if they would have had Mitt Romney behind a pulpit with a cross behind him and he said that? They would have crucified the guy no that's probably they would have crucified the guy! I can't believe the hypocrisy. And then what are people talking about on television? The sweetie comment? You know the sweetie comment? The sweetie comment, he recalled a reporter sweetie, "Hey, listen, sweetie." That's what you get up in arms about, the sweetie comment? That's really, that's it? He called what was it he related a pregnancy to, I believe a disease in his daughter? What was that quote?

STU: Punish her with a baby. I don't want to punish her with a baby. I love that quote.

GLENN: I'm going to punish her with a baby? I'm going to punish her with a baby. Right, right. That's it. He's talking about going and having a sit down and a sandwich with a guy who says that Israel will soon be annihilated and vaporized, let's have a sandwich but you're worried about him calling a woman reporter sweetie.

STU: On the sweetie thing, Glenn, though, don't you love when people from the left get caught in this world they've created where sweetie, which is a nice, a harmless thing where you're trying to be nice to someone, yet you get hammered for it because it's not the appropriate word for this week. I love when they get caught in their own net.

GLENN: You know what? I'm calling everybody on this program sweetie.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: I'm calling everybody who calls in fact, take Line 3.

Sweetheart, sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Yes? Yes? Yes, Glenn (in high pitched voice).

Obama's 'Sweetie' Comment

GLENN: How are you doing, Mike?

CALLER: Good, how are you doing?

GLENN: Good. Welcome to Closed Line Friday. What's up?

CALLER: Not much. Can I get a little bit of conspiracy train cuckoo noise?

GLENN: You got that one, Dan?

STU: Very don't have that one in a while. We're going to have to search for that one.

GLENN: Who has removed the paranoia express sound effect?

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: Who has taken that off? All aboard? Paranoia express, go ahead, Mike.

CALLER: No, I just had a I just wanted you'll have to excuse me. I'm extremely nervous.

GLENN: That's all right, sweetheart, relax.

CALLER: Thank you. I just believe that the Democrats are actually systematically trying to destroy the free market and trying to, you know, destroy capitalism so that they can begin to federalize industry.





GLENN: What gives you that Mike, what makes you believe that these really well educated, most of them attorneys that went to, you know, institutions of higher learning like Berkeley would be trying to destroy the capitalist system?

CALLER: Because I believe they think they're so smart that they're better equipped to manage our lives than we are. They don't think it's fair that corporations get to make this money. They don't think that it's fair that they get to allocated it as they see fit and they think that they're better qualified to do so.

GLENN: What evidence do you have that shows that those members in government believe that they can make decisions for you?

CALLER: They outlawed transfat, I can't fly through my windshield if I want to, I have to wear a seat belt. I mean, the most inalienable right to a human being is to be able to work and to reap the benefits of that work. But I have an oppressive government that stands over top of me with their hand out demanding by police force that I give them the product of my hard labor every time I turn around. I mean, there's a thousand different taxes. We have a tax code that's how many pages? 9,000 something odd pages long. I mean, it's getting to the point now it's ridiculous. Almost to the point where I want to dispel the notion where we're actually a free society. We live in a society where they confiscate 15% of my income throughout the course of my life which I'm 25, I'm to the going to get but yet I don't have the option to look at them and say I don't want your retirement plan, I want to save for my own retirement. If I took 15% of my income and put it in a Roth IRA, I would retire a millionaire throughout the course of my life. But I can't do that. If I try to do that, they will come to my house with guns and confiscate my property and auction it off.

GLENN: Mike.

CALLER: Uh huh?

GLENN: Why do you hate poor people so much?

CALLER: I don't hate poor people. That's the point. I believe that the poor people can make it. I mean, my father was a criminal. All his brothers were criminal. I was raised by a single mother. I'm a kid that used to play Russian roulette. I got arrested for armed robbery. You know what I mean? I've had a very checkered past. I've had all the ingredients for failure that all these other people have had. I've got a sixth grade education and I'm making about $60,000 a year running a small business that, you know, hopefully I plan on doubling if the Government doesn't, you know, put their foot on my throat and choke me out.

GLENN: So what you're saying, if I may, you hate women less than you hate African Americans?

CALLER: No, not at all. I believe in America. I believe in the concept of personal responsibility. I believe that African Americans as well as women are just as capable of accomplishing as much as, dare I say it, a white male.

GLENN: So how much money are you taking from Exxon or oil companies?

CALLER: Oh, billions, yeah. They told me to call. I'm actually on their payroll.

GLENN: Good. Well, at least we finally got to the truth. Thanks, Mike, I appreciate it. Great call.

CALLER: All right.


Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
