Glenn Beck: Pelosi says Iran responsible for Iraq success

Nancy Pelosi

GLENN: 888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK. Did you hear, Nancy Pelosi has finally admitted that progress has been made in Iraq. I never, ever thought I would see the day when she would admit that there was progress in Iraq, but she has and here's the audio.

PELOSI: Some of the success of the surge is at the goodwill of the Iranians. They decided in Basra when the fighting would end. They negotiated that cessation of hostilities.

GLENN: The goodwill of the Iranians? The goodwill of the Iranians. You mean the ones that have been killing our troops and making weapons and sneaking them across the border and blowing our troops up, that goodwill? You mean the goodwill from the people who have just yet again made another threat against Israel and said it was about time it vanished? I've never been one to get all hot and bothered about, you know, when Clinton was in, it wasn't the end of the world. He was bad, I thought it was really bad for the example that he set. I thought it was bad for us culturally. I thought it said -- he said more about us than about him. I learned more about us in the Nineties than I learned about congress and I learned about the President. This one, boy, I can't imagine. These people are so far left that they're talking -- she's talking about the goodwill of the Iranian leader.

Stu, how much goodwill do you think people have that take homosexuals and kill them?

STU: Generally not a -- they don't seem like a partying bunch.

GLENN: Wouldn't you think that Nancy Pelosi who represents the San Francisco area might have a problem with people who take homosexuals out into the street, flog them and kill them?

STU: Well, I don't know if actually you remember this. He did point out that there were no homosexuals in Iran.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, that's right. I don't understand. I really, I don't understand.

STU: It's an -- it is literally an unquenchable thirst to find negative about Iraq, to just not give credit and to try to make it nonpolitical.

GLENN: It's beyond that. I really don't understand that. Look, I'm willing to look at the facts. I'm willing to look at the facts that, okay, the facts were wrong when we went in. I'm willing to look at that. I'm willing to look at the fact that it was fought horribly, horribly not by the people on the ground but by Washington. It was fought horribly. We needed more boots on the ground. I'm willing to look at that. I'm willing to admit mistakes on that. I didn't do it but I'm willing to say we made mistakes. It's not just that they are looking to have us lose any way they can. It's who they're willing to throw in with. They are willing to throw in with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. You're kidding me, right? You're giving this guy goodwill? A religious zealot. Can you imagine. I mean, look how much heat that John Hagee gets. He's crazy because he says that maybe the end of the world is coming, Jesus is coming soon. Look how much they hate that guy. And yet a guy who stands at the UN and says, oh, Allah, help me hasten the return of the promised one. If you understood what he was talking about, you would understand that he's talking about, "Help me bring chaos to Earth because the faster we wash this Earth with blood, the faster the promised one will come." That's what his theology is. And they are so willing to get into bed with the worst people ever. They are willing to get into bed with Chavez. I don't understand it. It's so much more than just wanting to win here and win an election. This is a total view change of the United States. It is not just a different way to look at a problem. This is, a problem is the United States that the regime over in Iraq -- I'm sorry, in Iran has goodwill. They have been killing our soldiers! That Chavez makes some good points. He's a dictator. It goes back to what liberals will not admit to. They liked Mussolini before Mussolini threw in with Hitler. They liked him. He was the man of the year from Time magazine and it was in a good way. There were articles left and right in the New York Times and the New Yorker and everything elsewhere people said this is it, this is the new system, a benevolent guy who just is a strong arm and handles it all. It's craziness. Now they don't even care if it's a good guy. Now he can be as crazy as crazy town will allow you to be. He can be as evil as evil will allow you to be and they are still like, he's not that bad. He's better than us.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
