Glenn's fav founding father


Glenn Beck CNN Commentary


Che Guevara shirts fit for terrorists

Glenn: We were just talking a little bit about history and I'm wondering if anybody did anybody see if the history lesson I gave on CNN.com about Che Guevara? It made it even into the top 10. Usually we're the No. 1 or No. 2 most read story when we publish an editorial, but this week we had Che Guevara and it was it's quite amazing when you actually look at the history of who this guy is. Everybody buys the T shirts because it's cool. Everybody thinks communism is neat and it amazes me how nobody knows the history not only of killers but of our own country. Dan, what was the thing you got from the history channel on our founding fathers?

Dan: Yeah. This was a special that I downloaded on the founding fathers and founding brothers and the description and the show description of Sam Adams is this. It says Sam Adams was a rumpled pugnacious man who failed as a variety of professions before finding his niche as a revolutionist with a knack for inciting violence.

Glenn: By the way, joined by my best friend Pat who is filling in for Stu today who is sleeping because it was a long night. Anyway, give me John Hancock. I love that one.

Dan: Oh, yes, a wealthy aristocratic merchant, was also a known wine smuggler and he had a junior economic stake in breaking away from Britain.

Pat: It was all about the money for him.

Glenn: I didn't like the way the HBO John Adams special portrayed Franklin, as a real womanizer. There is absolutely no evidence, there is not a single letter, there's not a single there's no evidence of that, none whatsoever.

Pat: But it's just absolutely 100 percent embraced now, just as the Sally Hemings thing is with Thomas Jefferson.

Glenn: Didn't the DNA say.

Pat: No. The DNA said it was one of 26 members of the Jefferson family. That's what DNA said in 1998. One of 26 potential members of the Jefferson family. Thomas Jefferson, it could have been him, more likely it was either his brothers or one of his nephews. One of 26 Jefferson men.

Glenn: So, I don't

Pat: His daughters

Glenn: It wouldn't surprise me with Jefferson.

Pat: Oh, it would surprise me a great deal. It was not in his character.

Glenn: Tell me Jefferson's character. You know, he used to be my founding father. Good God. How did this train go off the track? Stations, I apologize for the there isn't a soul listening. I don't know, Pat. I think my favorite founding father is Thomas Jefferson. Geez

Pat: Founding fathers are interesting.

Glenn: George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, my favorite founding fathers.

Pat: What's the problem with Jefferson?

Glenn: I loved Jefferson but he was too conflicted. I see him as the most human out of all of them.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And he was because he was very conflicted, you know, he was against slavery, yet, he died with slaves. He was you know, he was he couldn't overcome his own human nature, where I think Franklin didn't necessarily do that, but Washington definitely did.

Pat: Oh, yes. There's never been a better man on the earth.

Glenn: Never been. There's by far never been a better President but quite possibly

Pat: You're forgetting Jimmy Carter. Right?

Glenn: Oh, you're right.

Pat: Yeah. Jimmy Carter.

Glenn: Yeah. He only had the burning helicopters. Washington had

Pat: And double digit unemployment and

Glenn: Yeah. He was great

Pat: Interest rates.

Glenn: George Washington never won a Nobel prize.

Pat: No, he didn't do anything with Israel and Egypt.

Glenn: By the way, speaking of this ADD moment, have you read Brad Thor's book, "the Patriot"?

Pat: No, but I've seen a lot of stuff from you guys on it.

Glenn: It was the No. 1 book last night.

Pat: Is he the Salmon Rushdie of America?

Glenn: This guy is

Pat: I want to read that.

Glenn: If you love Thomas Jefferson, you have to. It is the Di Vinci Code of Islam and the you know, instead of Leonardo Di Vinci, it's Thomas Jefferson.

Pat: They're going to stinking kill this poor guy.

Glenn: I think they will. He says he takes it seriously and I know that he's got some

Pat: I heard him on your show. It doesn't sound like he takes it seriously.

Glenn: He should, but he doesn't. You know, he was as cavalier as I was, you know, four years ago.

Pat: Kind of know better now, don't you?

Glenn: Oh, yeah. Well, stop me from saying what I believe is the truth.

Pat: Right.

Glenn: But I at least know.

Pat: And you've got to take some precautions.

Glenn: He is taking precautions. You've got to read it. So, anyway, we were talking about some history and stuff like that and this is how out of control we've gotten in this country. I had an incident with a battle flag of Gonzales.

Pat: You've always liked the Come And Take It flag.

Glenn: It's a Texan flag.

Pat: It was a flag from the battle of Gonzales. The settlers are Texas were given a cannon from the Mexicans, from the Mexican government, and then they wanted it back and they tried to take it back and the settlers were going to give it back and so there was a big battle over, we want to take it back and we're not going to give it back to you. So, they said

Glenn: This is the worst version of this story. So, it's the worst. You've got it all wrong. I mean, there was a cannon involved there was a skirmish between the Mexicans and the it was not a gift to the Texans.

Pat: It was given to the Texans.

Glenn: It was given to the governor of the Texas region that it happened in and the Texas

Pat: Was he a Texan?

Glenn: No, he wasn't.

Pat: The governor was living in Texas at the time.

Glenn: It's my understanding that Mexico had come in and had a big battle. They were occupying that area.

Pat: Yeah, well

Glenn: But that the governor was given this deal, he was out when the Texans kicked all of the

Pat: I'm not even going to listen to you anymore. I don't even have any idea what you're talking about.

Glenn: I know that. So, anyway, it was a big deal. The flag said Come And Take It. It has a cannon on it.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And it's just the greatest it is the way America should be. Really? You want a piece of this? Come And Take It, with the implication you know, the implied threat of, we'll kick your butt if you try to!

Pat: Yes.

Glenn: And I was flying that at my house and my neighbors complained because they thought it was wildly aggressive and so and so I wanted to hang the Benjamin Franklin, you know, from the Thomas the John Adams series, I love the flag with the snake on it, it's cut up and it says Join Or Die. I actually had it changed to unite or die because I was afraid, after what I went through with the Come And Take It.

Pat: That would be too aggressive.

Glenn: That Join Or Die, they would say he's running a compound cult and he's going to kill us all. I hate my neighbors.

Pat: So, how did unite and die go over in your neighborhood?

Glenn: I haven't had a complaint.

Pat: Did you explain it to them? Did you explain the story to them?

Glenn: Are you ready?

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: I had to explain it at a zoning meeting.

Pat: And how did it go over?

Glenn: Not well, no, no, huh uh

Pat: It was ugly, then.

Glenn: There were, like, 23 people on the zoning committee where I had to explain the flag. No, no, no, no, no, didn't go well. Didn't go well. But thanks for asking

Pat: Sure.

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.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.

COO of vegan food giant Beyond Meat arrested for CHOMPING man's nose

A top executive at Beyond Meat, a plant-based food company, was arrested for reportedly biting a man’s nose in a parking garage near Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas, over the weekend.

Chief Operating Officer Doug Ramsey faces charges of terroristic threatening and third-degree battery after allegedly chomping down on a man's face and "ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose" during an altercation following the University of Arkansas football team’s victory over Missouri State.

According to reports, Ramsey was attempting to leave the parking garage in his Ford Bronco when a Subaru “inched his way” in front of him and made contact with his front passenger’s side tire. Ramsey allegedly “punched through the back windshield of the Subaru” before attacking the Subaru driver with both fists and teeth.

Ramsey “pulled [the Subaru driver] in close and started punching his body,” then “bit the owner’s nose, ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose,” according to reports.

The irony of a vegan food executive trying to make a meal of a human being's face was not missed by those jokesters on Twitter.

BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere is a vegetarian and also just happens to be the executive producer of the Glenn Beck radio program. Glenn joined "Stu Does America" to do a taste test of the plant-based "McPlant" burger, a Beyond Meat product, to see how it fares against the competition. In case you missed it, this was without a doubt the most ridiculous (but entertaining) plant-based food review so far.

The stock market recently had its worst day since the early days of the pandemic and, just like in September 2008, many investors fear a dangerous chain reaction is starting on Wall Street. But that's just a small part of the bigger picture. The housing market is also taking a historic hit, grocery prices are out of control, energy prices are skyrocketing across Europe, and America is close behind.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck compared this year's stock market trends with what happened before the 2008 crash, detailed Europe’s bleak energy outlook, and explained why he believes they’re heading for economic "hell."

"Europe is about to go through hell," Glenn said. "A nightmare is about to hit. But, please, fear not. The heavens are engaged. Are you engaged with the heavens? You are not going to convince God to be on your side. We must be on his side. Realign everything in your life, now, so you can be on his side, and together we will weather all of these storms."
