Glenn Beck: Olbermann continues to gush




Olbermann continues to gush... See Michelle...

GLENN: This hour I will tell you who I believe the presidential nominee is going to be for John McCain and I'll tell you exactly why I believe it coming up in just a second. First I want to go back to, what was it, night before last Keith Olbermann was on MSNBC and he had just watched Michelle Obama's speech and this is what he said. Listen.

OLBERMANN: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Case close.

OLBERMANN: If that was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. If it was supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect. If that was supposed to be about friendliness and what they call accessibility, couldn't have done it better. Couldn't have done it better. And the premise of this speech, to try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish, that could not have gone better for them. That could not have gone better for them. It's wonderful. It really was terrific. The women in that convention hall, there were tears throughout among the women. And it was not a modeling speech, it was not a salesmanship speech. There was just a I know. I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic on this.

GLENN: No! No, Keith, you're not starting to sound that way, and it's not borderline. You crossed the border hours ago.

STU: Actually, Glenn, it is it was borderline sickophantic. It was just borderline between sickophantic and actual worship.

GLENN: Pitch perfect, Stu. When's the last time you ever said that about anything. When's the last time he said anything even close to something like this for a Republican? See, this is what I can't stand. I cannot stand these people with an agenda who won't admit it in the first place. The guy is a socialist. The guy is a Barack Obama supporter, period. Say it. "Look, I want you to know I come as a supporter. So I think this was pitch perfect." I don't have a problem with that. But to come out and do the analysis on this, do you think CNN would ever allow me to do that? Do you think they would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. Do you think MSNBC would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. And I you know the words that have never been written in my prompter for me? "Never" have been written. I go over and I did Larry King. I went off prompter immediately. I don't I don't nobody writes words for me. And they were very I made them very nervous because this is what was written in the prompter. What was written in the prompter was, "Hi, I'm Glenn Beck. I'm filling in for Larry King tonight. I appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. King." That was what was written in the prompter. I said something very close to that and then I said, listen, if you don't know who I am, I want to explain something to you. I'm a conservative. So I'm going to try to be as fair as I can, but I come, I come from this with a conservative angle. I just thought it was important for you to know. That was not in prompter. That needs to be said. But you know what? I'm a conservative. You wouldn't hear me say that about John McCain or anybody else: That was pitch perfect, that was pitch perfect. Now, what did he say last night? That was Michelle Obama. What could he possibly say other than it was perfect, people were crying, it was great, it was pitch perfect, it was supposed to be this, it was perfect, it was this, it was perfect, it was just perfect. What could he possibly say about Hillary Clinton? This is Keith Olbermann last night at MSNBC.

OLBERMANN: Grand slam. Grand slam, out of the ballpark, across the street. Across the buildings across the street. Five, six, maybe seven campaign slogans in that speech. Starting out from the getgo, a sock to the jaw of about disunity, a speech that started about Barack Obama, a proud supporter about Barack Obama. Then a lot about her, some about George Bush, twist will it all back to get her supporters to recognize that their goals are now best served by Barack Obama. Then Michelle, then Biden, then several key, strongest hits against John McCain we've heard at this convention and finally tying it all back together. I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know. He doesn't know how it could have been any better.

OLBERMANN: I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know how it could have been better (laughing). What is he going to say tonight? We have to take wagers on this. What is this man going to say tonight? I want to know. I think he's what's left? What's left? Spoke's speaking tonight? Clinton. Okay. So Bill Clinton's talking tonight and he's already used pitch perfect. Then he's used, out of the ballpark. Rocket ship to the moon. Rocket ship to the moon. He was on a rocket ship to the moon and he just never, he just took off and he was just never he just kept going and going. He was this speech, this speech was like a rocket ship to the moon. He landed on the moon. He set up a little colony there. They discovered, you know, totally 100% green energy that could be floated back magically to space. It couldn't have been even better. If he would have invented 100% clean energy on the moon, there in a colony and shipped it back magically, telepathically as only a Clinton or Obama could do. It couldn't have been better than this speech tonight. It wouldn't have been better. He could have in fact, he could have it was a rocket ship to the moon. He went all the way to the moon, he developed clean energy, he telepathically sent it back to us. He then set up these giant solar panels that he made out of the bones of Newt Gingrich and it collected all of the solar energy and it collected from the sun, it renewed the sun. It made the sun a little more manageable and then he took that solar energy and he shipped it back down here to save children without faces. And those children who have been struggling because of this administration, they haven't been able to afford the food because they needed some sort of food. And you know we can develop it. It's only because big energy hasn't allowed us to make it. You know the big three automakers have the technology to make food go through your face new don't have a mouth. But they have been holding it back because of the pharmaceutical companies and big oil and those damn Democrats and their back room deals with big oil and cigars and the Saudis and Dick Cheney. And it couldn't have been better if he would have just nailed Dick Cheney to a cross on stage there that he had built with solar energy on the moon. It couldn't have been any better if that hadn't happened. I think that's all he's got left.

STU: I think you are underselling the way he's going to react to that speech. It is like

GLENN: You know, I really, truly believe that Bill Clinton came off as Jesus Christ. Now, that is not to be look, I know a lot of people that watch me don't even believe in God but let me use this. Go with me for a second. I believe there is a God and Jesus Christ his son. And the son of God appeared tonight, not to be mistaken with actual God who will be in front of the Greek Temple tomorrow. Being cheered by 80,000 people. And then I think that's really what you have to understand, that I and the father are one. You saw the son tonight. Tomorrow you will see God. And pitch perfect. Couldn't have been any better. Just amazing. Just amazing.

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."
