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.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
