GLENN: I'm trying to find what the truth is. I'm just like you. I don't know. So I'm trying to find what the truth is. But you know what? I don't want to go down crazy rabbit holes unless I have to go down that rabbit hole. Let's -- you know, somebody that can help guide me a little bit. One of the guys who's guiding me is a -- the professor, Robert George at Princeton University. Look up this guy's credentials. He's unbelievable. He's one of the greatest conservative thinkers out there, and he holds the Woodrow Wilson chair at Princeton University. So I asked him one day, I said, "Hey, by the way, I have to ask you a question. Woodrow Wilson, an okay President or just one evil SOB?" And he smiled and he was about 25 feet away from me and he came back and said, "Not really a popular thing for me to say seeing that I hold the Woodrow Wilson chair, but not really a good guy." I said, "Could you do me a favor? Could you find the best book on Woodrow Wilson. Who was he. What did he do." Let me tell you something. I just last week got a book called "Woodrow Wilson and the History of the Liberal Movement" or something like that. What is this, Stu?

STU: It's Queen of Hearts, Glenn.

GLENN: You think Queen of Hearts is going to make this better?

STU: I just say when you get into revering territory, you may hear about 15 or 20 seconds of Queen of Hearts.

GLENN: Let me think. How can I -- so I read -- so I started reading this book. It is the most boring book. It makes Queen of Hearts look good. One of the most boring books you'll ever read in your life. However, let me just say this. This is the Grand Unified Theory. This is the mother lode. This is what I've been looking for and I believe what you're looking for. You've been looking for -- you'll see things and you'll go, Nancy Pelosi, why is she doing this. Wait a minute, they can't actually believe X, Y or Z, why are they -- why is the ACLU doing this, how are these things connected. And the way most people go is right down a conspiracy theory. And I've told you before I'm starting to believe some of these conspiracy theories because they are the only things that make sense. They don't make sense. This makes sense. It is the Grand Unified Theory to understand the progressive movement. Do they know what Progressives really mean? Here's Hillary Clinton about, what, almost a year ago in one of the debates, are you a liberal. And here's what she said.

HILLARY CLINTON: You know, it is a word that originally meant that you were for freedom, that you were for the freedom to achieve, that you were willing to stand against big power and on behalf of the individual. Unfortunately in the last 30, 40 years, it has been turned up on its head and it's been made to seem as though it is a word that describes big government, totally contrary to what its meaning was in the 19th and early 20th century.

GLENN: Absolutely true.

HILLARY CLINTON: I prefer the word "Progressive" which has a real American meaning going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century. I consider myself a modern progressive, someone who believes strongly in individual rights and freedoms, who believes that we are better as a society when we're working together.

GLENN: Okay, stop. She gets it. She knows exactly what she's talking about. The progressive movement. When you understand the roots of the progressive movement and what it really is, everything opens up for you. This is the Grand Unified Theory and here it is. Let me start with evolution. Why is evolution so important? Why does evolution, why is -- why are people fighting over evolution in such an unreasonable way? Why is it that you cannot teach anything but evolution? Okay, so we came from primordial slime to monkeys to people. Okay, that doesn't really work, but why is evolution so important? Because it's political.

Now, that may seem self-evident but I mean it in a much deeper way than what that says. It's not just political. It is politics. During the big movement, the craze, the Darwin craze, the evolutionary moments when people are like, "Oh, my gosh, maybe we came from monkeys," that changed and rocked the world and that took thinkers like Woodrow Wilson in the 1800s. Remember he was a scholar, he was a professor. It took thinkers like that and they said, wait a minute, maybe it's not just the body. Maybe it's not just cells. Maybe it's just not primordial slime that becomes a person. Maybe we can look at that in thought as well because what it means is it starts out something small and then it grows and it progresses. It progresses into something better. The progressive movement is an evolutionary idea. Its roots are in evolution. It is a progression of thought. As the body changes, as man physically changes, so do the thoughts. And they build, and they never go back. You never all of a sudden wake up and go, oh, crap, I'm a monkey again. You're always one step ahead. So you never try to say, whoa, wait a minute, I just want to be a monkey again. Or you never suddenly lapse back into monkeyhood. You were a man. Weren't a monkey, now you're better. You're a man. Got it. Now apply that to political thinking. Woodrow Wilson actually wrote, disregard these truths are self-evident, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, take that out of the Declaration of Independence. It was for them, just like the rest of it was for them. "Oh, we've got a problem with the king." These truths are self-evident to them. Why are the founding fathers so dismissed? They've got to cut your tie to the founding fathers, your love to the founding fathers. So then they can make the case that they were flawed, they were just them. These truths were self-evident to them for that time. But we have evolved past that. So disregard the Constitution. It was the evolutionary moment that said that the Constitution is living. It evolves. It progresses. Do you see how things are starting to tie in together? Everything started with evolution. It progresses. It evolves. It gets better. Even if you think that that is correct physically, is that correct in your brain, is that correct with philosophy, is that correct -- can you ever point to a time where man went backwards for a while and all of a sudden woke up as a monkey person. May I point out Hitler, World War II. May I point out that we discovered that the Earth was round and then that information was lost and suppressed and it had to be rediscovered. Men wake up to monkeyhood a lot when it comes to politics. But the liberal Progressives said, no, no, no, no, you don't. That was then; this is now. And Woodrow Wilson, in his book The State started talking about how great all the other states are all around the world. He started looking at all this stuff and saying this is great stuff, man. You know, our guys had it back then but now look at what we can do. We can progress. We can get better. And man will always believe and always know what the right thing to do is. All that a state has to do is just do it. And anybody that doesn't understand what the best thing to do is hasn't evolved, hasn't progressed. Why do they call you a racist? Why do they call you a hate monger? Why do they call you all of these things and try to make you look like somebody that was born in the fourth century? Because you are to them. You haven't evolved. They've evolved. They are more enlightened. They get it. They understand. Man naturally gets it... unless you haven't evolved. If you are trying to tie yourself back to the Constitution, if you are trying to tie yourself back to the founding fathers, oh, boy. What are we going to do with you, hmmm? This is the Grand Unified Theory. I really believe for the first time in my life I am finally understanding what has happened and what is happening.

I'm at the very beginning of this journey and I apologize to anybody in the audience that is right now pounding their dashboard going, "It's about time!" Well, I'm a self-educated guy and I don't care where the answer comes from. I don't care where it took me, and it took me a while but I think it's finally taking me to the right place and that is the grand unifying theory that evolution is true, that everything evolves, including political thought, and we have to leave the primordial scum back where the primordial scum belongs.

When you say we've got to think about what they really, truly believed back then, those who believe that evolution is right, those who believe that all political thought is right will tell you no, it doesn't matter what they thought then. Why? Because that was then. And the only way we're going to survive is if we evolve. Woodrow Wilson actually wanted to get rid of the Declaration of Independence. Forget about it. This is the guy who wrote a lot of the things. He was the guy who helped set up what is being taught in our universities. It all connects. That's why the universities are so screwed up. This is the same time period in 1920 they stopped studying the Constitution and the Constitutional Convention. What did the founding fathers really believe? They don't care anymore! That started in 1920. Now they study case law. Why? They study case law because there is no perfect law. The Constitution is irrelevant. There's the law that we had, the law that we should be striving for and where we can move it in between today. You saw this with Justice Kennedy talking about the death penalty for child rapists. He talked about we are moving to a place to where the death penalty is no longer acceptable. Not that it's constitutionally based, it's unconstitutional to do it or it's constitutional to do it, not that, well, this is not what the law is. We are moving towards a place and there is a growing consensus. This is evolutionary law. This is progressivism. This is exactly what it's all about, and it's not evil. It's just a misunderstanding. And you and everybody else are kept out of the loop. The things that you have to know to be able to see, "Well, wait a minute, I don't know if I agree with that." You know you don't agree with that instinctively but you've never been taught what really happened. You've never been taught, here's the turning point, here's what happened, here's why we've turned into what we've turned into. So if you are not taught, it just kind of makes sense that somehow or another we've lost our way, but you don't know how. But if you know how we have lost our way, well, then you can start to say, oh, oh, okay. Hillary Clinton, she wants to be an early American progressive, an early 20th century progressive. Okay, I know what that means and I know whose side you're on, I know what you believe, I know you're not anti-American. You just view America and its founding and its founding documents and everything else in a radically different way than I do. And I don't really want any of that.


 

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
