Glenn Beck: Daily Kos, internet rag


Anchorage TV Station: Sarah Palin Was "Definitely Pregnant" With Trig

GLENN: So Lee Stranahan wrote Daily Kos--this is on the Huffington Post--Daily Kos embraces the Palin fake pregnancy rumor, but rejects the Edwards story. I love this. It's the whackiest rumor about Sarah Palin or any other politician so far this election. It's making its way through the Internet and, of course, it came from the Daily Kos. Let's hear from the noted reporter, Arc XIX, what is that, Arc 19? Following up on a story by widely respected Inky 99. You know, here's the thing. If you are going to report stories, you should probably go with something a little more credible than Inky 99. Maybe it's just me: Well, Sarah, I'm calling you a liar. And not even a good one. Trig Paxson Van Palin is not your son, he is your grandson and the further forward you come with this revelation to the public, the better.

You know what's really impressive to me is how inconsistent, how inconsistent people like me are being. You know what I mean? Here I'm saying let's not go after these things because there's nothing there, they're discredited. But then I immediately spend so much time on the fake birth certificate of Obama's. Oh, no, wait a minute. That doesn't work. What was it, last Friday somebody called up and said, Glenn, how about his fake birth certificate? And I said, stop with the fake birth certificate. There's nothing there and it discredits you. Did we really, Stu?

STU: Yeah. Remember, that was a couple of weeks ago.

GLENN: We did an argument against the idiots on it?

STU: Yes, disproving some of the ridiculous myths about Obama, that that's not the reason for him not to be President. There's real reasons for him to be President.

GLENN: Okay. So anyway, this is on the Daily Kos from Inky 99 and Arc XIX. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians. Listen, this is the Huffington Post. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians that they would be so freaked out by the teenage pregnancy that they would have the governor, the most highly visible and public woman in a small fish bowl in Alaska fake a pregnancy to cover up the sins of her daughter Bristol.

First of all, if she's faked it once for her kid, why isn't she faking it a second time? Anybody think of that? Let me ask you this question. Women, can you get all technical with me and tell me how you're five months pregnant when you gave birth to a baby in April? How does that can somebody get all technical with me?

Let's see. It goes on and on and on. Then he says, the irony for me, of course, is that despite making over 50 short political videos with a clear progressive point of view, I was banned on the Daily Kos for saying what seemed reasonable that John Edwards was seen at the Beverly Hilton late at night. To be sure, some on Daily Kos pointed up the numerous problems with the Palin story, but the community in large part embraced it and it is part of a trend. The election hasn't even been won yet and there is already liberal hubris developing. Progressive standard bearers such as the Daily Kos and Keith Olbermann have been showing lines lately listen to this. Again this is from the Huffington Post. Does it sound familiar have been showing signs lately of a nasty tendency towards stifling dissenting opinions and promoting the sorts of crazy rumors usually associated with the right than the real based community. It's not effective, it's not progressive, and it's not good or accurate reflection on Barack Obama or the Democratic party.

Again, does it sound familiar? The Democrats have been hijacked by the uber left. The Democratic party. How many times have I said on this program, Democrats, good Democrats, when are you going to stand up. Good Democrats, when are you going to recognize that you have been hijacked and you are being used by the left and you're about to be discarded? You must grab your party again. How many times have we said that? How many times have we said we are entering a time that if the left, the uber left gets control of congress and they get control of the White House, your point of view is going to be squashed. People like me will not exist.

Here's a guy who is a blogger for the Huffington Post, who they wouldn't let speak out about John Edwards. Remember, that John Edwards story, that wasn't in the mainstream media. Nobody in the media wanted to cover that story because it wasn't relevant, and it was only coming from the blogs. I'm sorry. Wasn't even the blog. It was the National Enquirer. They didn't want to cover it. They sat on that story for over a year.

Has anybody noticed the play on this story? Has anyone noticed the play on this yet? This is everywhere, and it came from Inky 99. It's amazing. The Daily Kos immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. The mainstream media immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. This one, well, we the Atlantic Today is calling for the obstetrician: We want the records, we want them and we want them now. Excuse me? Has anyone yet called for the records on John Edwards' child? Which, of course, isn't his.

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."
