Glenn Beck: William the Canadian Patriot


FACT: The "Big Three" have kept car designs (see above) that use no gas under wraps since the stone age...

Glenn: Let me go to William in Toronto. Hello, William. It's globalism day. Welcome to the program.

Caller: Hello, Glenn.

Glenn: How are you?

Caller: I'm great. As a matter of fact, I'm so great that you can't believe it. You found your man with the bumper sticker. As a matter of fact, I got two John McCain bumper stickers.

Glenn: You have two John McCain bumper stickers?

Caller: Yes

Glenn: And you live in Toronto Canada?

Caller: Actually I live in rural Canada, 50 miles north of Toronto and that's country managed to get the bumper stickers, because the Obama campaign somehow got a hold of all the McCain vote for McCain stickers and shipped them to northern Canada and they're floating around here all over the place, but there's not reason I called. I'm really not into politics at all, but I have

Glenn: Wait a minute. Hold on just a second. Wait a minute. You're not really into politics at all

Caller: No.

Glenn: But you live in Canada

Caller: Yes.

Glenn: And you have a McCain bumper sticker on your car

Caller: Yeah. Well, you see, the opposition to John McCain has forced me into taking a political position.

Glenn: You know in Canada

Caller: Because

Glenn: In Canada you can't vote for the American President?

Caller: I know, but having said that, sir

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: I'm sure that things can be done to influence the outcome of the election and if I were to tell you

Glenn: What?

Caller: If you if I were to tell you right now Mr. Beck

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: that come November election day, the headline is going to be McCain wins by land slide, would you think I'm off my rocker?

Glenn: Oh, I already do.

Caller: That is perfect because I'm telling you, that's the kind of attitude I need, because I know

Glenn: Hold on just a second. Wait a minute. Are you running the global shadow John McCain campaign?

Caller: No.

Glenn: Okay.

Caller: But, but, but I have an idea.

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: For America.

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: And thereby

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: reluctantly drag Canada along with you guys, the second and the greatest American industrial revolution that you have ever seen and now you're really going to think I'm nuts.

Glenn: No, I don't think I can go any further.

Caller: So and I can tell you how we're going to do this.

Glenn: Okay. Go ahead.

Caller: We are going to build

Glenn: Hang on just a second. Ladies and gentlemen, you are hearing the voice of William. May I call you Bill?

Caller: You may call me Bill and I don't know you well enough yet to call you anything else other than Mr. Beck.

Glenn: No, no. You can call me Glenn if I can call you Bill because I'm a friend of Bill. Bill in Toronto is going to tell us how about the industrial revolution that is going to change the tide and make a landslide for John McCain. Go ahead.

Caller: Okay. Do you realize that the big 3 have the technology on their plate right now to take any of their domestic cars and make it produce 100 miles per gallon with no research and no development needed. The research and development has been done.

Glenn: That is incredible. I did not know that. Now, you got that, what, 60 miles north of Toronto?

Caller: Yes.

Glenn: Okay. Tell me about it.

Caller: Actually it fell out of the sky like man in a from heaven.

Glenn: You've got to be kidding my. Call I wish I was, but I'm glad I'm not.

Glenn: I'm glad you're not, too. Tell me about it.

Caller: Because here's how I'm going to make that happen.

Glenn: Okay.

Caller: I'm going to take a domestic car.

Glenn: A domestic car.

Caller: Anyone. I doesn't matter. Let's say tiger woods, he drives that Buick, right?

Glenn: Yes. Now, your domestic or my domestic? Canadian car?

Caller: No. We've got to take an American car because that's who's going to build this car and we're going to, first of all, throwaway that gasoline general.

Glenn: Throw it away.

Caller: And we're going to put in a diesel engine.

Glenn: Diesel engine. Let me ask you, Bill I don't mean to micromanage here. Why don't we start with a diesel car. Then we don't have to buy a gasoline general and throw that away and go out and buy a diesel engine. Let's just simply because I don't mean to throw you off, to simplify, let's buy a diesel car.

Caller: The reason we're not going to buy a diesel car is because they don't build them good enough yet.

Glenn: Damn them.

Caller: And damn the big 3 for not coming up with this and making me come up with it. Now we've got this diesel engine in front. We put in behind it a six speed electronic control transmission, which they have.

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: And so for the engine let me go back to the engine.

Glenn: Okay. Hang on. I've got to take a break. I want to stay here and then we're going to take down the big 3, Larry, Curly, and Mo. We'll do that here in just a second, with Bill in Toronto who says he can solve it and John McCain will win in a land slide. He's calling from Canada. So, I won't let him wait too long because I know long distance charges are crazy. So, hang on just a second. Bill in Canada.

(Out at 9:41 a.m.)

Glenn: All right. We're with Bill in Toronto. He's taken a gasoline engine, thrown it out, bought a diesel engine, put it in, then he put an electronic transmission in it. Go ahead, Bill. Now what do we do to make John McCain win?

Caller: Oh, well, that is so secret that I couldn't tell you on the air. If I did, I would have to kill you.

Glenn: Damn.

Caller: Okay? But I'm going to continue with my 100 miles per gallon car.

Glenn: Okay. Go ahead quickly.

Caller: Okay. So, we take that Buick that originally comes off the factory floor at 2,500 pounds or 3,000 pounds and we reduce the weight of the entire vehicle, engine and everything included, into around 1,200 pounds.

Glenn: I have this idea do you fill the interior of the car with helium?

Caller: No, but what you do is you take out all of the seats in the car.

Glenn: Ah.

Caller: Have you ever lifted a car seat, Glenn?

Glenn: They're so heavy.

Caller: Yeah. Well, what if I told you they have the technology to make each and every one of those car seats 10 pounds and be more comfortable than what you've got now?

Glenn: Okay. So, did you try to helium thing and it didn't work?

Caller: I had 350 helium balloons in it and the tires went flatter. Don't ask me why.

Glenn: We're going to place the engines and we're going to replace the car seats

Caller: Yeah. We take the spare tire and throw it away because we're going to run flat tires. You don't need a spare.

Glenn: Got it.

Caller: And aerodynamics.

Glenn: Uh huh.

Caller: We're going to make this car like a silver arrow.

Glenn: Have you thought about making it look like a hot dog, because I believe I'm just I don't know a lot about aerodynamics, but I am a thinker. Have you ever seen the wiener mobile? If you take the bun off that thing, I don't thing there is any drag on that wiener mobile.

Caller: Well, that is the idea of the aerodynamics on this car.

Glenn: I knew it would be.

Caller: Is to take every single wind resistant item off of this are car.

Glenn: Like?

Caller: Well, let's take when you look through your window, what do you look through? So, what if your rearview mirror is now mounted inside your car and you have a rear looking camera that is projecting the rear picture onto your rearview mirror that is sitting inside your car?

Glenn: Got it. Got it.

Caller: No wind resistance.

Glenn: Have you thought about having 10 pound people in the back seat that could just look out the rear window and tell you what would be there?

Caller: Yeah, but they would be too short. They wouldn't be able to see.

Glenn: We can build a 5 pound seat, like a booster seat.

Caller: (Laugher.) Mr. Beck, I love your show. I believe that you are the true American patriot.

Glenn: I believe you pay may be the true Canadian patriot.

Caller: What I'm going to ask you now is simple. Have one of your producers take those ideas I put together.

Glenn: And build the car this weekend?

Caller: No, no.

Glenn: Okay.

Caller: My last item, my last item about this car and then I'm done.

Glenn: Okay.

Caller: General Motors, Chrysler, or Ford could start building this car at Monday at 8:00 a.m. in the morning and have it on the road by 4:00 in the afternoon.

Glenn: Holy cow. 100 miles per gallon.

Caller: They have the technology, Glenn, but it's like when you're in the forest and you can't see the forest for the trees.

Glenn: Yes.

Caller: They've got too much technology and stuff out there they're working on. They can't see this simple answer in front of their nose they have already created.

Glenn: You should create this car.

Caller: These guys are brilliant engineers.

Glenn: You should create this car.

Caller: I have, on paper, and I have

Glenn: No, no, no. I don't mean on paper. I mean you should actually put it on the road.

Caller: No. Do you know what?

Glenn: What?

Caller: I don't have time for that and the reason I don't have time for that is because I'm afraid that Obama will get elected before I can put this car on the road.

Glenn: But you can pit on the if GM can do it by Monday, you can do it by Wednesday?

Caller: No. For me to do it, it would take me six weeks because I have to order everything special.

Glenn: Oh, six weeks. Damn it! Okay. William, thank you very much. Now, on this aerodynamic car, can you put the John McCain sticker on the back?

Caller: No. And I no room. The bumper is too arrow dynamic.

Glenn: Okay. All right. Well, there's pros and cons to everything, I guess. Thank you so much, William, for calling from Toronto. Let us know in six weeks if you have this car. We would sure like to see it. Here's our number, 1 888 727 BECK.

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.

On Wednesday's TV show, Glenn Beck sat down with radio show host, author, political commentator, and film critic, Michael Medved.

Michael had an interesting prediction for the 2020 election outcome: a brokered convention by the DNC will usher in former First Lady Michelle Obama to run against President Donald Trump.

On Thursday's "Glenn Beck Radio Program," BlazeTV's White House correspondent Jon Miller described the current situation in Virginia after Gov. Ralph Northam (D) declared a state of emergency and banned people carrying guns at Capitol Square just days before a pro-Second-Amendment rally scheduled on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Jon told Glenn that Gov. Northam and the Virginia Legislature are "trying to deprive the people of their Second Amendment rights" but the citizens of Virginia are "rising up" to defend their constitutional rights.

"I do think this is the flashpoint," Jon said. "They [Virginia lawmakers] are saying, 'You cannot exercise your rights ... and instead of trying to de-escalate the situation, we are putting pressure. We're trying to escalate it and we're trying to enrage the citizenry even more'."

Glenn noted how Gov. Northam initially blamed the threat of violence from Antifa for his decision to ban weapons but quickly changed his narrative to blame "white supremacists" to vilify the people who are standing up for the Second Amendment and the Constitution.

"What he's doing is, he's making all all the law-abiding citizens of Virginia into white supremacists," Glenn said.

"Sadly, that's exactly right," Jon replied. "And I think he knows exactly what he's doing."

Ryan: Trump Louisiana Finale

Photo by Jim Dale

Part One. Part Two. Part Three.

At the end of Trump rallies, I would throw on my Carhartt jacket, sneak out of the press area, then blend in with everyone as they left, filing out through swinging doors.

Often, someone held the door open for me. Just 30 minutes earlier, the same person had most likely had most likely hissed at me for being a journalist. And now they were Sunday smiles and "Oh, yes, thank you, sir" like some redneck concierge.

People flooded out of the arena with the stupidity of a fire drill mishap, desperate to survive.

The air smacked you as soon as you crossed the threshold, back into Louisiana. And the lawn was a wasteland of camping chairs and coolers and shopping bags and to-go containers and soda cans and articles of clothing and even a few tents.

In Monroe, in the dark, the Trump supporters bobbled over mounds of waste like elephants trying to tiptoe. And the trash was as neutral to them as concrete or grass. They plodded over it because it, an object, had somehow gotten in their way.

It did not matter that they were responsible for this wreckage.Out in the sharp-edged moonlight, rally-goers hooted and yapped and boogied and danced, and the bbq food truck was all smoke and paper plates.

They were even more pumped than they had been before the rally, like 6,000 eight year olds who'd been chugging Mountain Dew for hours. Which made Donald Trump the father, the trooper, God of the Underworld, Mr. Elite, Sheriff on high horse, the AR-15 sticker of the family.

Ritualistic mayhem, all at once. And, there in Louisiana, Trump's supporters had gotten a taste of it. They were all so happy. It bordered on rage.

Still, I could not imagine their view of America. Worse, after a day of strange hostilities, I did not care.

My highest priority, my job as a reporter, was to care. To understand them and the world that they inhabit. But I did not give a damn and I never wanted to come back.

Worst of all, I would be back. In less than a week.

Was this how dogs felt on the 4th of July? Hunched in a corner while everyone else gets drunk and launches wailing light into the sky? configurations of blue and red and white.

It was 10:00 p.m. and we'd been traveling since 11:00 a.m., and we still had 5 hours to go and all I wanted was a home, my home, any home, just not here, in the cold sweat of this nowhere. Grey-mangled sky. No evidence of planes or satellites or any proof of modern-day. Just century-old bridges that trains shuffled over one clack at a time.

And casinos, all spangles and neon like the 1960s in Las Vegas. Kitchy and dumb, too tacky for lighthearted gambling. And only in the nicer cities, like Shreveport, which is not nice at all.

And swamp. Black water that rarely shimmered. Inhabited by gadflies and leeches and not one single fish that was pretty.

Full of alligators, and other killing types. The storks gnawing on frogs, the vultures never hungry. The coyotes with nobody to stop them and so much land to themselves. The roaches in the wild, like tiny wildebeests.

Then, the occasional deer carcass on the side of the road, eyes splayed as if distracted, tongue out, relaxed but empty. The diseased willows like skeletons in hairnets. The owls that never quit staring. A million facets of wilderness that would outlive us all.

Because Nature has poise. It thrives and is original.

Because silence is impossible. Even in an anechoic chamber, perfectly soundproofed, you can hear your own heartbeat, steady as a drum. A never-ending war.

I put "Headache" by Grouper on repeat as we glided west. We were deadlocked to asphalt, rubber over tarface.

And I thought about lines from a Rita Dove poem titled "I have been a stranger in a strange land"

He was off cataloging the universe, probably,
pretending he could organize
what was clearly someone else's chaos.

Wasn't that exactly what I was doing? Looking for an impossible answer, examining every single accident, eager for meaning? telling myself, "If it happens and matters the next year, in America, I want to be there, or to know what it means. I owe it to whoever cares to listen."

Humans are collectors and I had gone overboard.

Because maybe this wasn't even my home. These landmarks, what did they mean? Was I obvious here? When I smiled, did I trick them into believing that I felt some vague sense of approval? Or did my expressions betray me?

Out in all that garbage-streaked emptiness — despite the occasional burst of passing halogen — I couldn't tell if everything we encountered was haunted or just old, derelict, broken, useless. One never-ending landfill.

Around those parts, they'd made everything into junk. Homes. Roads. Glass. Nature. Life itself, they made into junk.

I cringed as we passed yet another deer carcass mounded on the side of the road.

As written in Job 35:11,

Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky?

Nobody. Look at nature and you feel something powerful. Look at an animal, in all of its untamable majesty, and you capture a deep love, all swept up in the power of creation. But, here, all I saw were poor creatures who people had slammed into and kept driving. Driving to where? For what reason? What exactly was so important that they left a trail of dead animals behind them?

So I crossed myself dolorously and said an "Our Father" and recited a stanza from Charles Bukowski's "The Laughing Heart"

you can't beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.

Out here, nothing but darkness. Needing some light, by God. Give me something better than a Moon that hides like an underfed coward.

Jade told me about some of the more traumatic things she'd seen while working at the State Fair.

"Bro, they pull roaches out of the iced lemonade jugs and act like nothing happened."

"All right but what about the corn dogs?"

"You do not want to know, little bro."

She looked around in the quiet. "Back in the day, the Louisiana Congress refused to raise the drinking age from 18 to 21," she said. "They didn't want to lose all that drunk gambler money. So the federal government cut off funding to highways."

We glided through moon-pale landscape for an hour before I realized what she had meant. That there weren't any light poles or billboards along the road. Nothing to guide us or distract us. Just us, alone. And it felt like outer space had collapsed, swallowed us like jellybeans.

Like two teenagers playing a prank on the universe.

In the cozy Subaru Crosstrek, in the old wild night, brimming with the uncertainty of life and the nonchalance of failure, we paraded ourselves back to Dallas. Alive in the river silence that follows us everywhere.
