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: No.

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: No.

CALLER: Yes.

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.


 

Whitney Webb EXPOSES the REAL power behind Jeffrey Epstein's sexual blackmail network

Journalist Whitney Webb has a gift for locating power and hunting it in its darkest corners. In her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” she exposes the dark truth about Epstein’s extensive criminal operations and the connections to entire networks of power and influence — a web of elites that infiltrates the highest ranks of every sector, including law enforcement, art, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, big business, real estate, philanthropy, media, academia, banking and more.

Webb joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to expose just how deep Epstein's vast network of corruption and power really went. Was Epstein a government informant? How big is the scandal's body count? And of course, did Epstein actually kill himself?

Webb's research into transhumanism has also given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. People around the world have had enough of these global elites trying to control their lives, and they're starting to elect leaders who are pushing back. But can these new leaders survive the system that people like Klaus Schwab have put in place?

Webb told Glenn that she believes we're actually facing something much bigger than Klaus Schwab.

Watch the full podcast with Whitney Webb below to learn why Glenn says "this is the most important hour I have ever been a part of in broadcast [and] I've done this for 45 years."

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to explain why, with over 100,000 votes left to count, she's "100% confident" that she will win against Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently still holds a narrow lead.

Kari also gave her thoughts on why the ballot counting has been so slow, why that's "embarrassing" for Arizona, and whether Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters will also win his election.

We've learned some very valuable lessons from this year's midterm elections so far, but perhaps the most important takeaway should be that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should be the model for the entire GOP.

"Any Republican that's not willing to look at Ron DeSantis, and see what he did and how he did it, and begin to model themselves after that is a fool. An absolute fool," said Glenn Beck stated on the radio program. "He is not angry. He is not divisive, at least [not] intentionally divisive. That's not his goal. His goal is to be decisive, and decisive people are perceived sometimes as divisive because a lot of people don't want to make changes. It is time to make changes," he stated.

"Second thing, our nation is spiritually lost. Completely lost," Glenn continued. "There is only one savior, and he's not on a ballot. Until we drop the manifest destiny [and] arrogance of 'God's on my side,' we will continue to suffer defeat, hardships, and darkness. And I mean as a nation, we are all going to pay for this. We must be on God's side, and that requires humility."

Glenn went on to say the third big takeaway is that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "was and is wrong."

"Lukewarm Republicans are not going to defeat the Democrats," Glenn asserted. "Just not being a Democrat is not enough. And Mitch McConnell should feel the ramifications of this loss. Mitt Romney said just last week, he tweeted that a red wave was coming, and it was all thanks to Mitch McConnell. Well, it turns out he was right. What was coming is all thanks to Mitch McConnell."

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck unpacks the wins, losses, and lessons from the midterms and asks, “Why can’t everyone be like Florida?”

Results are still coming in, but if Republicans take the House, what will they do with a majority? BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere argues the GOP must stop the bleeding and block the worst instincts of the Biden administration. We can’t relax for the next two years and put our hope in a Republican presidential candidate.

Matthew Peterson of the New Founding PAC says, win or lose, “No one is coming to save you”— there are REAL changes you can actually make at the local level. Now is the time to start building careers, communities, and infrastructures that align with your values to better fend off attacks from the Left. “Why be around people who don’t like you?” Make red states redder.

David Barton of WallBuilders brings some much-needed perspective and says the mainstream media was too focused on national issues; there were MAJOR untold wins at the local level. At the end of the day, bold leadership was rewarded.

Finally, Glenn shocks the audience by agreeing with Mitt Romney and apologizes for the creative direction of the graphics featuring Democratic candidates in BlazeTV’s election coverage. Just kidding. They had it coming.
