Glenn Beck: Beyond the Headline


BITTER T-SHIRT

Having trouble keeping track of all the insults that Barack Obama has been sending your way lately? If you're a bitter typical while person clinging to God and your guns...then this is the t-shirt for you. Get yours today.

GLENN: Obama has given a speech today talking about now is the time to redeploy our combat troops. If surge has caused a strain on our military. We were just talking about this in the break. I can't keep up with these people. I cannot keep up with these people. No matter what the problem is, we've got to attack that, that's a reason we should get out right now is because of that problem." You solve that problem, they'll find another problem. And then you solve that one and they will find another problem. Can we ever be successful, could we ever just stop -- did you hear about the big story over the weekend that was the nine troops that were killed? Did you hear that story? Stu, what were the details of that story that you can remember?

STU: The details of that story, Glenn, is that nine troops were killed. That's --

GLENN: No, but there had to be more.

STU: There was nine troops.

GLENN: Nine troops killed.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: How were they killed? I mean, that was a horrible, horrible story. There were nine troops killed.

STU: There was nine troops killed and I believe the cause of it was evil imperialist policy?

GLENN: No, no. No, no, no, they -- Al-Qaeda was attacking a base. There were 500 Al-Qaeda.

STU: Taliban?

GLENN: Taliban? What's the difference?

DAN: The article said Afghan insurgents, whatever that means.

STU: Maybe a nice little mix.

DAN: Freedom fighters.

GLENN: Well, if we would stop occupying their country, maybe we wouldn't have to fight for their freedom. So 500 freedom fighters go and they try to attack our base. We killed over half of them. They are not having a party in the base. They are not even in the base. We destroyed them.

STU: When they took over the base --

GLENN: No, they didn't take over the base --

STU: Then what did they do.

GLENN: No, they didn't take over the base.

STU: They scared the rest of them away --

GLENN: No, the rest of the troops weren't scared away. We kicked their butt.

STU: No, the barbecue.

GLENN: They didn't have a barbecue. You don't understand. We won. It would be like --

STU: When they bake the pie, they took the pie out of the oven --

GLENN: It's like a basketball game and the score is 250-9 except it's not basketball. It's gulf! The lower the score, the bigger the win! Ahhh! I don't know how to deal with it anymore because the truth just doesn't matter. The truth doesn't matter. I have never seen the -- I've been in the media for 30, how many years. Look, I'm not a mathematician but I am a thinker. I've been in the media for over 30 years. For the love of Pete, I've never seen it like this. Barack Obama, is anybody going to point out how wrong he was on the surge? No, no. They're just like, oh, yeah, he's right, the surge is a strain on the military. Shouldn't have done that. We should have pulled them out. Pell them out? Back then? When all the bad guys were still walking around? That doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

STU: See, I don't know what paper you're reading, but from what I've read, the war was lost a long time ago.

GLENN: No, I don't get the Harry Reid Times.

STU: No, but the Harry Reid Times said the war was lost.

GLENN: I know, I know, that was the big headline. War wasn't lost.

STU: If you've lost the war, why are you going to a surge. It's over.

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. The Harry Reid Daily News, it's like future news.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, it's like Harry Reid will just get up and go, future news. "The war is lost." Future news! And then they just print it in the Harry Reid headlines and then you read it and you're like, wow, I hope that doesn't happen. And the good news is Harry Reid sucks at, you know, as Nostradamus.

STU: Right. So you know the opposite of what he predicts will occur.

GLENN: Harry, if I may just give you a piece of advice, you know how Nostradamus cloaked his things in, you know, poetry and everything so you weren't really sure? You're like, well, he could have meant that. You know what I mean?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Like when he was like, you know, -- and then there was red and black and there would be like, that could have been the assassination of Kennedy. He was in a black car and she was kind of wearing a red dress. It was pink. He might have seen it differently, but I think that's what it is.

STU: Yeah, the interpretation, there's all sorts of room there.

GLENN: So Harry Reid needs to start saying, the war... and then just end it there.

STU: Right. Because the people say he knew a war would be going on.

GLENN: He knew the war was going on. You've got to give him that. He knew the war was going on. I think he meant that it was going poorly and we were losing. No, no, no, no, no, you don't understand. This guy's a genius. He meant that we were going to win.

STU: Were going to turn the whole thing around.

GLENN: Future News, from Harry Reid.

STU: He's brilliant, this guy.

GLENN: Still not worse than Chuck Schumer.

STU: Oh, I disagree. I think he's worse than Schumer. He's -- I mean, he's not even good. At least Schumer comes off like he might have an idea what he's talking about. Harry Reid is horrible.

GLENN: I will give you that. I will give you that.

STU: He's just not good at what he does.

GLENN: See, you watch him -- I don't understand how people do this. You watch him and you're like, how does anybody bind this. You go back to coal makes us sick. Do you have that clip?

STU: That performance is terrible. That guy, I mean, that is a terrible performance. You wouldn't have this guy out selling crackers.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Does it bother anybody else that Stu -- and it seems reasonable? I mean, it's true? Does it bother anybody else that Stu was just describing a leader in congress as giving a performance?

STU: It's true. Isn't it?

GLENN: It is. They're performing. They don't believe any of this crap. Come on, can Harry Reid actually believe this stuff? Anybody who actually believes this stuff? I heard Robert Reich on CNBC last night and he was talking about the way for more informing is to tax people and these energy companies more. What? Come on, man, you can't actually believe that. It was a very good performance. I still don't believe. The guy can't tie his shoes if you would believe that. All right, here's Harry Reid and his performance.

REID: We talked about cost competitiveness but the one thing we failed to talk about is those costs that you don't see on the bottom line. That is, coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. This global warming, it's ruining our country.

GLENN: Stop, stop.

STU: It's ruining our country, it's ruining our world. What possible perspective could you have.

GLENN: That's somebody sitting in the room going, give this a whirl. Just get on and say, it's making us sick. Throw it out there. See if it sticks to the -- I swear to you that's where they come up with this stuff. They're just like, I don't know, there's enough dummies out there; just give that a whirl.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
