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.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
