Glenn Beck: Pelosi's book bombs




Book link: Know Your Power

GLENN: Nancy Pelosi has -- oh, by the way, hello, you sick twisted freak. From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. Nancy Pelosi is still blocking offshore drilling. Stop the music. Listen to this one. She is still blocking offshore drilling even though now a majority, slim that it may be, a slim majority of Californians now favor offshore drilling. What? Now a majority, slim majority now favor offshore drilling. Those are Californians that are for it. Wow. Nancy Pelosi's awfully popular. By the way, I saw -- last night on the Drudge Report -- I don't know if it's still there. On the Drudge Report Nancy Pelosi's book was, like, 800 something -- it was like -- let me go to the Drudge Report now. It was like 843 last night. She's got a new book out. I just clicked on the Drudge Report and looked for the story. Last night when I went to bed, I look it up and I see. There was like 843 and I went, oh, my gosh. Nancy Pelosi, she's 843. But you know what? That will spike. Her new book is coming out. That will spike because now Drudge has that and people will be clicking on the book because they don't -- oh, God forbid Nancy Pelosi looks bad. It was 843 when I went to bed last night. Now after a full 12 hours or so of Nancy Pelosi being on the front page of the Drudge Report about her book, she's now climbing the charts. She's down to number 1,610 on Amazon.com. So that was pretty -- that's pretty good. Actually, you know what? I've spent some time looking for other books.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Well, it's -- I mean, there's -- you know, there's a couple -- you know, the obvious big-time author, Tori Spelling, has sTORI Telling. It's a small S and then TORI, sTORI telling, like Tori Spelling? Isn't that funny (laughing)? She's beating Nancy Pelosi.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. I've got more.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: More successful than Nancy Pelosi right now on the best seller list, the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. I got a better one.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: It's been out for a year. "An Inconvenient Book."

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Well, I resent that. It's not a piece of crap book. It's just been out for a year and yet I'm proud to say my book, "An Inconvenient Book," beating Nancy Pelosi.

You know what, let me tell you something. This is how out of touch the Democrats are. Nancy Pelosi is -- I mean, could she be more unpopular right now? This is what you get when you vote against something and not for something. I think most people voted against the Republicans in the last tour of duty there at the voting booth. I think most people were voting against the Republicans and so they voted for people like Nancy Pelosi. And now Nancy Pelosi is blocking legislation to start offshore drilling. They are -- the country's crying out, would you please start drilling. But congress has gone on vacation for a month. Now, some Democrats, this according to the San Francisco Chronicle, some Democrats are getting ancy fearing the party's stance could hurt them in the fall elections, but Pelosi insists opening new areas to drilling won't lower gas prices in the short-term. Well, how about the long term, Nance? She believes a vote would only help the GOP blame the Democrats for high gas prices. She says, "I will not give this administration an excuse for its failure." You know what, are you four? I don't care whose fault it is quite honestly, Nancy. Let me give you the benefit of the doubt. You didn't get us here alone. The Republicans had lots of opportunity to do it. They didn't do it, either. You both suck. Now fix the problem. She's blocking a vote on offshore drilling because in her own words, quote: I'm trying to save the planet.

Stu, could you just look up, could you Google for me something real quick?

STU: Surely, Glenn.

GLENN: Okay. Could you just Google the oath that members of the house of representatives have to take when they put their hands on the Bible?

STU: Sure, I'll look it up.

GLENN: All right. Just look it up for me real quick. That should be pretty -- she says, I'm not going to be diverted from a political tactic from a course of action that has a big picture view. A vision about an energy independent future that reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and focuses on those renewables that are protective for the environment. I am trying to save the planet.

Do you have it yet, Stu?

STU: Glenn, I'm searching oath for the house of representatives and I'm going to save the planet, and I do not see it.

GLENN: Can you just search for the oath? I'd like to -- let me just hear the oath that she took.

STU: I don't see it yet. Hold on.

GLENN: I believe it's protect, defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God. I believe that's what it is.

STU: My computer's not working, Glenn. I can't tell you what it is.

GLENN: All right. Is that the new technology?

STU: Yeah, new technology is coming.

GLENN: You know what, it's coming soon. Don't worry about it. Stu okay.

GLENN: Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. I believe that's what it is. From all, you know, from -- what is it, all threats, foreign and domestic. I don't, I don't -- I'm sorry, I don't see "Save the planet" in anybody's -- does anybody want that as the oath of office for the speaker of the house or any member of congress or the President of the United States? Does anyone want the "Save the planet" in? Because we can vote on that. Why don't we vote on that, shall we? Save the planet. Now, I know right now there are some hippie dope-smoking San Francisco listener going, "This guy hates, man, if we save the planet, we'll save ourselves. Why do you hate the planet? You can destroy the planet and not exist." It's crazy because usually hippies are the ones that have the bumper stickers, "Act locally, think globally." Saving the planet would require us thinking locally. I believe if we save ourselves, we'll save the planet. Now, how could I possibly say something as crazy as that? I don't know. I mean, I'm watching the Olympic games starting next week where, you know, everybody's wearing surgical masks, you know, and you can't even see -- everybody's eyes are red. They had to go out and take slaves from the countryside and clean out all of the algae in the harbor there because of industrialized waste. No, but don't worry. We're the big problem. Once you destroy America, once you cripple America and America no longer has the economic power in the world to be able to be the industrial leader, to be the intellectual leader, to be the economic power, once you put us on the ropes and make us dependent on places like Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and China, oh, my gosh, you're right. The planet's going to be fixed. Because I believe that China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, I believe those countries will be much more kind to the environment than we could ever be. Don't you agree? I mean, Russia, they're so cute and cuddly. China, oh, I just love them to pieces. Oh, it's great. And you know what? They take those bodies out of the rice paddies when they drown the little children in the rice paddies. The government takes that's out. They don't leave them to decay. Of course, if they would decay in the rice paddies, it might make good fertilizer. Have they thought of that? Somehow or another we're the big enemy. And these people think that if we cripple ourselves somehow or another, the planet's going to get greener. I mean, do these people -- have they read the newspaper lately? Has Nancy Pelosi -- or has she been busy on her book? She's probably been busy on her book. I wonder if there's another -- hang on, let me look for another book that is beating Nancy Pelosi right now. Oh, got one.

VOICE: And now, another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: More successful than Nancy Pelosi's new book, My Horizontal Life, a Collection of One-Night Stands.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Do they read the paper or are they busy trying to write their own books? Are they paying attention at all to what's going on?

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."
