Glenn Beck: Another crazy cartoon



RELATED STORY


Stu Blog: Outrage at New Yorker Cover

GLENN: In a story I haven't talked about, but this occurred to me when the story first broke but I'm like, this isn't really a story. Now it is. Now it is. You know the Muslim cartoon thing with Barack Obama on the cover of the New Yorker dressed as a Muslim and his wife as a militant? Okay. It's a political cartoon. I don't think this is a story. It's a stupid political cartoon. If anybody wants to be pissed off about it, it should be the conservatives. Who's saying that he's a Muslim? Who's saying that? Okay, stupid bloggers. If you're so dumb that you're getting all of your news from the e-mails, you're the same people who are buying your Viagra over the Internet as well. I mean, oh, and quick, make sure you fund those Nigerians. What's wrong with you? So I haven't even brought it up, until I heard Obama's response. "This cartoon is an insult to all Muslims." Is it just me? Because that kind of reminds me of something else I heard this man say before -- I've heard this phrase from somebody else before. I'm trying to remember. Hey, Stu, can you remember anybody saying "This political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims?"

STU: Political cartoon?

GLENN: Political cartoon is an insult -- I heard it from somewhere. I didn't expect to hear it from the guy who's possibly going to be the next President of the United States but I know I heard it some place.

STU: See, I think you might be misremembering because what, what person is going to get that fired up about a political cartoon.

GLENN: Right. And be insulted.

STU: To inflame a race or an entire religion?

GLENN: Religion, yeah.

STU: I mean, that's not --

GLENN: That's crazy talk. That's got to be something I just made up in my -- ahh. Is nobody noticing the next possible President of the United States said a political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims.

STU: You don't think they'll react? You don't think there's a possibility --

GLENN: I don't know. I just, some days I just want to take the sleeping pills and just go sleepy sleep. You know, some days don't you just go, I can't believe it.

STU: What could possibly happen, though, if a political cartoon inflames all Muslims in the Middle East?

GLENN: Nothing.

STU: There's nothing that could --

GLENN: No.

STU: What's the worst --

GLENN: What's the worst.

STU: -- that could happen other than what we've seen happen last time it happened?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: What could possibly go on?

GLENN: That's crazy. You have to laugh. You have to laugh or you turn into me and you go insane.

STU: What happened? Aren't all the good comedians from the left? What happened to these people's sense of humor. It's an insult to the right. That is a cartoon that is insulting us evil conservatives because as you know, Glenn, we're constantly calling Barack Obama a terrorist.

GLENN: He's a Muslim terrorist, you know.

STU: But it's like, why can't you relax and just -- it's a stupid cartoon in a magazine. Did you even know it existed anywhere?

GLENN: I'm not having this conversation anymore about a political cartoon. I was screaming at Fox News this morning driving in, screaming at Fox News. I'm listening to it and I'm like, you're on Day 3 of this story? It's not a story! It's an ad campaign for the New Yorker! Since when did anyone put any stock into cartoons from the New Yorker! Isn't it the New Yorker that we've all been looking at for years and years and going, I don't get it; I don't even know what that means. Isn't that the magazine?

STU: Yeah, it's actually so cliched that their cartoons are boring and not understandable that it's actually the joke.

GLENN: It's the joke. It is the reason why in Fusion magazine we have quarter -- charter quarterly. It's the political cartoon that we do in Fusion magazine and it's for the -- it's the cartoon for the wealthiest 1%. I don't even understand that cartoon. You're not supposed to understand that cartoon. It's a parody of the cartoons in the New Yorker! I mean, we have the next possible President of the United States: "That cartoon, that political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims." Oh, my gosh.

And then, and then his wife was talking about the stimulus package. I love this. She's talking about the stimulus package and she's talking to some women's group. She says, let's just be honest. I mean, they sent us all the check for $600. No, they didn't. They didn't send us all a check for $600. I didn't -- did they send you one, Michelle? They better not have sent you one because you don't qualify. You actually pay taxes. I think to qualify to get the check, you have to not pay taxes. You're -- if you don't pay taxes, you're guaranteed to get a rebate, which I don't understand because maybe you didn't put anything, so how can you get a rebate. But that's a different story. If you are making six figures, you better not have gotten a check for $600. And so she's saying let's be honest, let's be honest. I mean, $600. So what, you go out and buy a pair of earrings? What? So you go out and buy a pair of earrings?

Stu, does your wife own a pair of $600 earrings?

STU: Nope.

GLENN: My wife does not own a pair of $600 -- my wife would say, $600 earrings, what, are you crazy? $600 earrings? I'll buy the fake ones; nobody will know. $600 -- who's spending -- and they wonder, why am I an elitist? Why do people say I'm an elitist?

STU: I was thinking about that over arugula the other night. Every woman I've ever known, though, has always said earrings. I'm not going to spend that much on earrings. Like I -- you know, everyone likes to have a -- they have that luxury item that they target.

GLENN: Whatever it is. It could be like women -- you could be more relatable if you said a purse to a woman.

STU: It would be relatable to me if you said that.

GLENN: Yeah, but I don't think -- my wife, are you kidding me? Anything nice that my wife has in a purse or something like that, I'll buy for her because she'll go and she'll go, that's really nice but, oh, my gosh, that's crazy for a purse. And so I'll go on her birthday or something and I'll go buy that then because she won't buy it. Who buys $600 earrings? No, I'm saying, look, if you want to get your wife something for your anniversary or for her birthday, I can see you going out and buying $600 earrings. You know, you buy her some nice stuff. But who takes their stimulus check and goes, I don't know what I want to waste this on, maybe $600 earrings? Why do they think -- Barack, put down your smoking jacket for a second. "Why is it they think we're elitists? I don't understand it. I don't know, I'm too pissed off about this editorial cartoon and my favorite magazine, the New Yorker." My gosh, who are these people? Just... okay.

Let's debunk a couple of other things and cut through the bullcrap. I don't speak political talk, but I do speak enough bullcrap. I was raised speaking bullcrap and until my 30s it was the only language that I spoke. So I think I may be able to cut through some of the political speak because really political speak is just a dialect of bullcrap. So let's go into the oil thing.

Barack Obama would like a $300 stimulus check to help people on oil. I don't know, what are you going to do? Only buy one earring? No. Were you crazy? Sure, we gave $600 stimulus checks out for people who wanted to just buy earrings, but are you implying that you don't care about those Americans with only one ear? How about the one-eared Americans that lost their ear in... some... the Great Ear War?

STU: The Great Lobe War of 1814?

GLENN: That was bad.

STU: Or the War over the Inner Ear Canal.

GLENN: It's open and we gave it to China now. I don't know that but, whew.

STU: Tough battle.

GLENN: You don't really care about those people that only have one ear? What about those people who were just born with one ear, that can only listen to AM radio? Sucks to be them. They deserve an earring.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

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.
