Glenn Beck: Defending Hillary



BILL CLINTON: And they are trying to get her to cry uncle before the Democratic party decides what to do in Florida and Michigan because they are claiming that it only takes 2,029 votes and the first ballot to win, it takes a lot more than that if you put Florida and Michigan back in. Well, they will have to unless we want to lose the election. In case you haven't noticed, most of the media aren't for her and there have been two independent academic surveys, she's up 8 in the other poll, he's down 8. So that's the reason there's this frantic effort to push her out because she's winning the general election today and he's not, according to all the evidence, and I've never seen anything like it. I've never seen the candidate treated so --

GLENN: Hang on. Stop here for a second. Stu, have you ever seen anything like this?

STU: Never seen anything like it at all, Glenn.

GLENN: Especially when the Clintons are involved?

STU: I've never seen the media seem to pick one candidate and just favor them in everything.

GLENN: It's just, I can't think of a time. Definitely, like, not in 1992.

STU: No, no. Definitely not at any point in the Nineties. There's never a point --

GLENN: Never a time.

STU: Where they picked one side and favored it and then completely trashed the other side.

GLENN: Yeah. Shhh. Keep your voice down.

STU: Sorry.

GLENN: I never saw, like, a time, ever, when the media would just take something and just distort it and turn it upside down on its head. You know, and just run with it like it was the truth.

STU: And blatantly lie about the other side of the argument.

GLENN: It's incredible. I'm with Bill Clinton. I've never seen this happen before, either.

BILL CLINTON: And I've never seen anything like it. I've never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stu, have you... (laughing). Have you ever seen a candidate treated with such disrespect?

STU: I've never seen it -- I've never seen a candidate been treated with such disrespect, certainly not the last seven years, definitely not (laughing).

GLENN: Anything from 1992 on, I've never seen that happen. I've never seen, like, the media just call Bob Dole "Dead Man Walking." I've never seen anything like that. Go ahead. Bill was saying --

BILL CLINTON: Just for running. And her only position was, look, if I lose, I'll be a good team player. I'll try to win. But let's let everybody vote and count every vote. I thought that was the Republican way. I thought it was the American people in Florida that disenfranchised people, not the Democrats.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. It was the Republican party? The Republicans were saying count every vote in the entire state. You can't cherry-pick. And if they would have listened to the Republicans, they would have won. But they cherry-picked. I just... okay.

STU: At the end he really admits what he's saying, though, which is I've never seen a Democrat candidate treated like this.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That's what he's talking about.

GLENN: "I thought it was the Republicans that did it, not us."

STU: It's okay to do it to Republicans, guys. Come on.

GLENN: We're on your side. It's just, it's amazing.

All right. So here's where the media I think got this whole story wrong over the weekend. They are still trying to figure out -- they are now calling him crazy. Have you seen this? They are now saying, oh, he's crazy -- oh, once again it's a conspiracy. You never said that it was crazy when it was a right wing conspiracy. Nobody in the media ever said that was crazy. They were like, "It's true, they are out to get them." Really? Now, he's crazy. "Oh, he's crazy. He's got that conspiracy thing again."

STU: It's like they didn't even say it was ridiculous after it was uncovered that it was true.

GLENN: It's true.

STU: Like imagine if there was a memo that came out right now from, like, all the three major networks conspiring together to go against Hillary Clinton. If that came out.

GLENN: Right.

STU: That would be the same thing as what's happened.

GLENN: And they would still say, oh, he's crazy. He's crazy? Really? He's crazy? Huh. Have you seen -- do any people that work for the media, do they watch television or read the newspaper? I've never seen anything like it. I mean, let me quote Bill Clinton: I've never seen anything like it done to a Democrat. I mean, this is the way -- this is the world conservatives live in. I mean, for the love of Pete. And what makes me so angry is the Republicans, the Republicans are Democrats now. They are not Republicans. They're Democrats. And nobody stands for anything anymore. Nobody is standing for the truth at any time. Even Bill Clinton can't go, "You know what, I can see what the Republicans were talking about. I never saw it before. I can see what they're talking about now. The media has selected a candidate."

Now, here's where the media -- I mean, absolute proof that the media is selecting and twisting and putting horrendous things into Hillary Clinton's mouth. I am not for Hillary Clinton. I got news for ya. She would suck as the President of the United States, I mean just suck beyond belief, she would be so bad. But let her -- let's fight the battle on how much she sucks. Instead, just like always, the media, the uber left, they will not ever argue the facts. They will just paint you a racist, they will shut you down, they will strong-arm -- you want to talk about fascism, this is it. We've got a bunch of fascists that are running. We've got a bunch of fascists that are in the media. We've got a bunch of fascists that are sitting in Washington, D.C. These are not Democrats. These are not Republicans. This is the uber left that are fascists. They will do anything they have to to shut people down.

Here's the latest. The latest -- and if you weren't -- if you were a -- oh, if you were a good boy, you turned off the news this weekend. If you turned off the news and you just kind of kept abreast of it a little bit, you might have seen the story that Hillary Clinton said that Barack Obama was going to be assassinated.

Did you see this story? Did you see any of the headlines? She compared -- the only reason why she's staying in is because Barack Obama might be assassinated in June like RFK. I saw that headline and I'm like, what? There's no way she's this stupid. What did she say? I can't believe it, no way. I went and I got the video. Here's the video. Listen to what Hillary Clinton actually said. She was having a conversation on, I don't know why they are trying to get me out of this race; it's un-American; it's beyond me.

HILLARY CLINTON: I don't because again I've been around long enough. You know, my husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know, I just, I don't understand it. And, you know, there's lots of speculation about why it is, but --

VOICE: What's your speculation?

HILLARY CLINTON: You know, I don't know. I find it curious and I don't want to attribute motives or strategies to people because I don't really know.

GLENN: Stop, stop. Hello! So we can add yet another thing to the list that we cannot say. Not about Barack Obama, but we can't even say historical facts when you might be in the vicinity of talking anything about Barack Obama or his policies or anything, if you knew him, if somebody just might say "Oprah" in the same paragraph. We can't even say historical fact anymore? I mean, -- by the way, C-Span is running a special, C-Span. They are running a special on RFK and the assassination, 30 years. Oh, my goodness, the life and the legacy of RFK. "Those hate mongers. We should call the secret service. I believe they're threatening his life." You've got to be kidding me. Does Barack Obama need secret service? You bet. He got the -- he had secret service faster than anybody else. Is it cool to make any kind of reference to any candidate being assassinated or an attempt on their life? Never. Never. Not funny, not cool, not American. You don't do it. Was she doing anything like that? No.

So how did this get in the news? Thursday Keith Olbermann, he does his special commentary, and it is special because sometimes you listen to it and you're like, yes, that's very special, Keith. He gave his special commentary and he talked about how Hillary Clinton... "RFK, what's happening" thing. No, Keith, that's a special comment.

So what happens? The Obama campaign, the one that wants to keep it above the fray, the one that just wants to change the way we do politics, the ones that, they don't want to get into dirty name-calling, back and forth tit for tat; let's talk about what the American people are talking about. The Obama campaign picked up the... (mumbling), and sent it out.

The media picked it up. It's like a vicious circle. That's incredible, isn't it? Does the truth matter anymore? You're darn right it does. You're darn right it does. But it requires us to actually look at things and be consistent, to actually look at things and say, You know what, Hillary Clinton would suck beyond belief. But you know what? Beat her on the facts. I would be saying this if the Republicans were saying it. And if you don't believe me, you haven't listened to this show long enough. My goodness, don't we stand for anything? I guess I can't imagine what's coming. If Barack Obama becomes President of the United States, what do you think is going to happen? Who do you -- who is going to be allowed to say anything about this guy or about his policies or about historical facts that somehow or another he can tie into him? We have not -- you think people trying to get monkeys to testify in a court of law is crazy, you haven't even begun to see craziness until you see what I believe is coming in political correctness. This is the first truly politically correct campaign where you just can't say jack. And if you think that there are going to be a lot of voices out there, I think you are also sadly mistaken.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
