Glenn Beck: Battle of the Headlines

VOICE: Barack Obama, John McCain. Two candidates, one winner. The Battle of the Headlines is about to begin. First here's the pregame analysis with Ted Stantley and Gary Beckers.

STU: I tell you for the first time in a long time, Gary, the 2008 presidential debate isn't the top news story on everyone's mind.

DAN: That's right, Ted. There are two other huge stories going on. John Edwards has been cheating on his cancer stricken wife. And the other event is of course, the Olympics.

STU: Yeah, the top athletes in their game, showcasing a wide variety of talented people while Edwards is competing against himself to see how big of a scumbag he can be.

DAN: I tell you Ted, Edwards is succeeding, big time. He’s in a league of his own. What a piece of crap this guy is.

STU: His reservations for hell all set and ready to go, and so is the first half.

VOICE: Here's Glenn Beck with today's headlines.

GLENN: I think they just beat up on John Edwards better than John Edwards has beaten up on him. But hey, who am I to judge. Let's go. Our first headline comes from John McCain. John McCain headline number one out of the paper today. John McCain says he needs more sleep. Headline number two, John McCain, who's the novice? And John McCain, headline number three: McCain has lived pampered, out of touch he lived in a bamboo cage! He's lived a pampered, out of touch could go off for an hour on this one lifestyle.

VOICE: It's time for halftime analysis with our own Ted Stantley and Gary Beckers.

STU: I tell you as usual not a first half that was solid for McCain. The media trying to turn conventional wisdom on its head.

DAN: Exactly right. Trying to say that McCain's the inexperienced of the two candidates and that he's the one living a pampered lifestyle.

STU: All while tossing in an old person joke, too. I tell you what’s getting old is John Edwards cheating on his cancerous wife.

DAN: The chick he hooked up with, she isn't even that hot.

STU: Not only that, she's actually unattractive in many ways.

DAN: You can say that right. She fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch and impediment.

STU: Summer teeth. Some are here, some are there.

DAN: Possibly the offspring of Helen Thomas and Sam Cassell.

STU: Was beat with the ugly paddle--wait, Helen Thomas and Sam Cassell had an affair?

VOICE: The second half starts right now. Here's Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Here we go. Barack Obama headline number one: George Clooney coaches Obama. Headline number two: Obama jogs, golfs on first full day back in Hawaii. And headline number three: AP exclusive. Obama policy book coming out September 9th.

VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top. Gee, what a frickin' surprise.

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."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
