Glenn Beck's Battle of the Headlines: Obama on a roll

Voice: Barack Obama, John McCain, two candidates, one winner, fighting to the bitter end, the battle of the news headlines starts now.

Glenn: Here we go, the battle of the headlines. This is where we pit Barack Obama and John McCain up against each other to see who's going to win, just based on the headlines of the day. We take the headlines of the paper every day, pit them 4 against 4. Is it 4 or 5 today? Pit them against each other and see who's going to opinion and, Stu, it's been a long haul for John McCain. We've been doing this for a couple of weeks and things aren't looking good.

Stu: Yeah. That's right, Glenn. I'm trying to remain completely unbiased here, but it's so hard because Obama is flawless. How I mean, the guy doesn't make a mistake.

Glenn: Oh, my gosh. I just got a tingle up my leg.

Stu: How can you possibly print a negative headline I got goose bumps. Obama.

Glenn: Oh, oh. I just got another. Do it again.

Stu: I don't want to.

Glenn: Say it like you're a hot chick.

Stu: I'm not going to do that for you.

Glenn: Say Obama. Just say Obama. Oh, yes. When your girlfriend, you know your girlfriend is, like, just let me call you Obama, when your wife is like, Obama, yes, we'll know we have found our man. All right. So, Stu.

Stu: Yes, Glenn.

Glenn: Looking like a good day for Obama or McCain.

Stu: The man is flawless. Obama has to be the guy.

Glenn: Here we go. Here we go. Headline No. 1: Obama's start status frustrating McCain. Headline No. 2: Obama gains on McCain in Arizona fundraising. Headline No. 3: The stars align for Obama. No. 4: Obama wins applause for delicate dance through Mideast political mine field. May I just point out here I don't think anyone should dance through a mine field but maybe it's just me. And finally the last headline for Barack Obama, Berlin awaits the new JFK. (Applause.) All right. We're her at the half. What are you seeing, Stu?

Stu: Well, you know, a couple of weeks ago I thought those headlines would have been bad with McCain having a clear edge on foreign policy but now we have seen Obama can travel across the oceans. The man is walking on water.

Glenn: Here we go, the next set of headlines. These are for John McCain in our headline battle. Headline No. 1: McCain denies misstating timetable of surge in Iraq. McCain credits Bush for drop in oil price. Iraq veteran takes on McCain in new ad. McCain's foreign policy frustration, and, finally, just so we can show a little ageism, the final headline for John McCain, McCain's confusion on Iraq.

Voice: Once again, Barack Obama comes out on top, glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee, what a freaking surprise.

Glenn: Hang on just a second. Stu, is that the second or third or fourth day that we have had a McCain headline that is ageist, that is confusion, he's mixed up?

Stu: Yeah. There's been a big

Glenn: Slow?

Stu: That's the new push lately is that he can't remember which country is which and he can't remember when things started or when dinner is being served, things like that.

Glenn: I think we should talk to him. If you're in the press corp, you should say, Mr. McCain, could you answer a question for me? How great is Obama?


I think you should just shout and speak slowly for the old and infirmed.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
