Glenn Beck: Your Kid's Secret Code

GLENN: Now if you Google the headlines for Barack Obama you get these. GM chief tells Obama how to save auto industry. Obama will fight for gay rights. Obama's fresh style of politics keeps surprising. Yeah, yeah. Here's something surprising on the way he does politics. Does anybody remember this quote from October 2007? He said, "To be clear, Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunication companies." That's a spokesperson, Bill Burton, from the Obama campaign 2007. That's weird because now he's voting in favor of the new FISA bill that gives the telcom companies blanket immune for post September 11th eavesdropping, something that he said he would definitely filibuster. Of course, he also came out against NAFTA. Remember during the campaign? He said NAFTA, he was pledging to force a renegotiation. He would take the hammer to Canada and Mexico and threaten unilateral pullout of NAFTA? Yeah, now he says that rhetoric was a little overheated and he endorses, you know, he endorses what one of his campaign advisors said which is overheated rhetoric and posturing in Mexico. He also said he would meet with Ahmadinejad without any preconditions. Well, there's no preconditions. Now it's just a few preparations, a few preparations we've got to talk to. You know, just prepare some stuff. This guy, he is surprising. What was the headline? Fresh style of politics. Not really, but it is surprising. Love that.

Dan, put that on the calendar. Every couple of days we should do that. Let's just look at the headlines.

DAN: Sure thing.

GLENN: Here's another one. On the John McCain thing, does anybody else notice the way they just try to make him look old every step of the way? Does anybody else notice that? The John McCain is way behind online, I don't even know what that story is about. Is this -- click on it. Is this the story where John McCain is -- oh, John McCain, he doesn't even know what the Internet is. You see that? Two days ago they had Barack Obama's, they had all of his songs from his iPod. What does he listen to, what is his iPod, what's on his iPod, let's get to know him musically. I'd like to get to know him, you know, policy-wise. I don't really care what he has on his iPod. "What's he have on his iPod." John McCain, it's like he doesn't even understand what the Internet is. "Internet? I don't... there's this magic box on my desk. I don't know. And then a typewriter, I don't know where to put the paper." Have you noticed how they are making him look? There was one story out this week that says he's aware of the Internet. Members of the press... is he literate on the Internet? The President's not going to be on the Internet. The answer was John McCain is aware of the Internet, but the way it was spun was, "Uh... I'm aware of it. I... where's my shoe? Lost my shoe." I love this. Love this. It's fantastic.

You know, I saw another story today, a complete non sequitur here. I saw a story today on the things that you're supposed to know if you have kids, the things that you're supposed to know online. They give you a little test. The accurate Ms on the Internet that everybody's supposed to know. Stu, see if you even know this stuff.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Because, you know, you're -- are you aware of the Internet?

STU: It's like the computer thing, right?

GLENN: Yeah, it's the computer thing.

STU: It's the computer thing that you pull into your phone and you dial up a number and then it connects you to the intraweb. Yeah, yeah, makes those cool noises.

GLENN: Yeah, makes those cool noises. You know what? Dan, you are one of these kids. You kids these days. Get Sarah, too. See if you guys know any of these things. I didn't know any of these.

STU: Okay. Are you aware?

GLENN: What? I... there's my shoe. Ready?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: What's this acronym stand for? POS. Anybody? Come on.

STU: POS?

GLENN: POS.

STU: Point of service.

GLENN: No, sorry.

DAN: Position?

GLENN: Dan, you're a sick, sick twisted person.

DAN: What? That's the first three letters of the word.

STU: That's what they use in the websites Dan visits.

GLENN: Yes. Look at that position, huh?

DAN: See, I didn't even think of that but thanks for --

GLENN: "I like sitting down."

Sarah, POS?

STU: She's in the middle of some nightmare.

GLENN: She's in the middle of some nightmare? Really? Is it a female thing? She's pregnant now. We don't ask Sarah a lot of things. We're just like, she's pregnant, don't ask her, she's not in a good mood. POS, parents over shoulder.

STU: Oh, yeah, yeah, I've heard that. No, I have heard of it. This isn't computer language. This is like text messaging sort of language you are talking about. Like this is --

GLENN: Text message, don't you use that on the intraweb?

STU: No, but you are not talking computer terms. You are talking like what they are going to use in chat rooms.

GLENN: Internet acronyms.

STU: Sorry. I was in the wrong frame of mind. Go ahead.

GLENN: Okay. PIR.

STU: Parents in room.

GLENN: P911.

STU: Emergency parents.

GLENN: Emergency parents?

STU: Yeah, like look out, look out, there's a -- I can't talk.

DAN: He's got it down.

STU: I talk to 12-year-olds all the time online.

GLENN: I thought it was all of a sudden you are calling emergency parents, "Hey, stop doing that, I'm here now." "Oh, my brother is, you know, whacking the cat with a spoon." Don't worry, you called emergency parents, stop whacking the cat with a spoon.

STU: Please stop talking about that.

GLENN: PAW.

STU: Parents at work.

GLENN: No, parents are watching. PAL.

DAN: Parents are listening.

GLENN: ASL.

STU: Adults swim late.

GLENN: Very close, very close. Age, sex, location.

STU: Oh, yeah. That's a big one. That's a big one. That's like the first thing you are asked when you go on the 12-year-old chat room.

DAN: And you always answer 18.

GLENN: Age, sex, location?

STU: Yeah, that's like the greeting, Glenn. It's like when you go into a room, you go up and you ask them that and then they respond so therefore you'll know -- they do this all the time on -- I know this one particularly because of Dateline because they do it all the time and they respond like 12, female, and they still keep chatting to them.

GLENN: Well, why do I need to know location? Do I have to put, like, my GPS coordinates there?

STU: Have you ever seen Chris Hansen's program?

GLENN: No, I don't -- no, uh-uh. I've seen it before.

STU: Well, these people want to know the location, Glenn. That's part of the gig.

GLENN: Right. So wouldn't this just be an alert, hi, I'm a pedophile?

STU: It could be -- like let's say you are a 16-year-old talking to another 16-year-old. Wouldn't be necessarily that way. It's an introduction, Glenn. It's like your baseball card. You know what I mean? It's like the info on the back of your baseball card. It gives you the rundown.

GLENN: M or F.

STU: That would be male or female.

GLENN: S or G.

STU: Straight or gay.

GLENN: LMIRL.

STU: Oh, this is --

GLENN: LMIRL.

STU: LMIRL?

GLENN: LMIRL.

STU: I was going to go with something like laughing my something but I don't know what it is.

GLENN: Let's meet in real life.

STU: Right, okay. Very nice.

GLENN: Yeah. KPC.

STU: That's Kentucky -- no, not chicken.

GLENN: Kentucky puked chicken?

STU: It's possible. KPC, I don't know.

GLENN: Keeping parents clueless.

STU: God, I hate children. Thank God I don't have any.

GLENN: Oh, I'm ready. I'm thinking about going, drowning mine. TD2M. No, they would be happier anyway. You can't imagine how much they were they are going to have to -- after being raised by me, you have no idea. TD2M.

DAN: This is like child molester bingo.

GLENN: It is, it is. Bingo! TD2M. Talk dirty to me. I see this, TD2M, I lock my kid in the attic.

STU: Yeah, it's definitely a murder spree inducer.

GLENN: No, no, not for the kids. I just lock them in the attic. When you're 40, you can come downstairs.

STU: You go murder the 40-year-old because you have his age, his sex and location, you just start killing everyone there.

DAN: If you know what TD2M is, you need to be put in jail.

GLENN: Unless you are John McCain and then you are just too old to be President.

STU: Right, of course.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.
