Glenn Beck: P Diddy's poetic prose


Renown statesman P-Diddy demands McCain should stop 'buggin'...

CALLER: Hey, I have a question for you. Did you hear what Puff Daddy said about Sarah Palin?

GLENN: I believe it's P. Diddy now. From Rexburg, Idaho, Puff Daddy, you're so yesterday.

CALLER: I know. Well, I listen to the guy yesterday and I was amazed because first he starts off and says there are I don't think there's any black people in Alaska. And then a little bit later he says there ain't no or there is no black people in Alaska, or crack heads.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Let's listen to what he actually said. This is what he actually said. This is P. Diddy.

P. DIDDY: Alaska? Alaska? Alaska, Alaska, come on, man. I don't even know if there's any black people in Alaska. If you really think that we're going to let you win this election with these, like, crazy decisions that you're making, November 4th, we have to protect our future because John McCain is bugging the [BLEEP] out, okay?

GLENN: That was good political commentary there by Puff Daddy, as they say in Rexburg.

CALLER: I that you was it was amazing because he started off by saying he doesn't know but all of a sudden he came to a realization there is no. I was just up in Alaska for two months and let me tell you there's a few of them. And crack heads aplenty.

GLENN: Really?

CALLER: Yeah. I've never seen so many homeless people in my life. And I actually was born in Alaska. I love Alaska. It's a beautiful state.

GLENN: Why does Sarah Palin hate the black crack addict homeless person that you apparently saw in the streets of Alaska? Why does she hate them so much?

CALLER: Because she's white.

GLENN: All right, good. I'm glad we have it down. You have more of this P. Diddy thing?

DAN: Yeah, the second part he was talking about which was later on in these ramblings, we've got to post this whole thing on the Internet because this is amazing stuff, but here it is.

P. DIDDY: What is the reality in Alaska? There's not even no crack heads in Alaska, no black people. There's not even no, like

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Is that a good thing to P. Diddy that there are no crack heads? I mean, is it a bad thing that there's no crack heads?


STU: That means she's doing a good job?

GLENN: I just wish we had more crack heads in the neighborhood. Honey, what did you think of the last house we saw? I don't know. I didn't see a single crackhouse. Where are we going to go for our crack? What does that even mean?

Oh, by the way, Obama's giving a speech on women and the economy today. But McCain is the one freaking out, seriously. By the way, P. Diddy, I just want to because I know you can't understand, you know, because there are no black people in Alaska. So Sarah Palin clearly can't relate to black people because there are no black people. How many black people in Alaska? Done the homework for you. 4.72% of the population. It is below average. It is below average. 4.72% of the population. That's the population of Alaska. So you were right. There are black people, but it's just below the national average.

You know, let me just give you comparison here. That's just below the national average. That would be like if I compare where does P. Diddy live, Stu?

STU: Alpine, New Jersey, Glenn.

GLENN: Alpine, New Jersey. Okay. Oh, my gosh, I just happen to have the stats. What's the percentage of people that live in Alpine, New Jersey? The place where P. Diddy chose to live, but he had enough money to live anywhere on planet Earth. Percentage of black people living in Alpine New Jersey? 1.51%. So that's about 33 total black residents, 32 if you don't count P. Diddy. So apparently Sarah Palin can understand black people a little more than three times better than P. Diddy. Of course, I don't know how many crack heads they have in Alpine, New Jersey. Let's just go out on a limb and say maybe at least one.

Let's go to Dick in Florida. Hello, Dick.

CALLER: Conservative optimist here, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes, sir.

CALLER: I don't know Mrs. Palin.

GLENN: Yes, thank you for calling her Mrs. Palin and not Ms. Palin like the New York Times has insisted in doing in every article today.

CALLER: No, it's Mrs.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: She's a married woman.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: And I don't know her, but I do know many women from Alaska, and you did mention earlier it is a little tough up there, you know.

GLENN: The women in Alaska, they could take me. Now, that's not saying much. The Southern Belles could take me, too. Would you like some sweet tea or I just crack you in the face. So I mean, it's not really saying a lot, but yes, they are a little tough up in Alaska.

CALLER: Very. And I think these attacks, if I'm not mistaken, and like you said if she doesn't implode, which I think the chances of that are about 1,000 to 1, maybe 10,000 to 1.

GLENN: I don't know. We'll see tonight.

CALLER: I don't know.

GLENN: Yeah. We'll see tonight.

CALLER: But my opinion is this will do nothing but strengthen her resolve.

GLENN: You know what, let me tell you something, Dick. I think you're right because that's just the kind of person that she is. I mean, she took on a corrupt system in Alaska. I mean, she has stood up to some of the most powerful people in politics and she won. She's not a wallflower. Now, I think if she gives a speech tonight and she is in control you know you remember that Dan Quayle thing that he had going for him and you're like, "Oh, boy, he doesn't know what he's talking about," you just see it in him, woof. If she has that look, she's done. I've spoken to her. I don't think she's going to have that look. She's very, very intelligent. She's up on it. If she comes out and she can deliver that speech and she can have do you remember the look that Bill Clinton had when he said, "I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky, and I've got to go back and do the work of the American people." When he said that, he had that attitude towards him. And he you're just like, okay, the guy can't be lying because, boy, I mean, if you're lying, that's sure going to destroy your career. Well, it doesn't reality doesn't count when it comes to the Clintons. But it will with Palin. When she comes out tonight, if she addresses and she should if she addresses what's going on in the media, she needs to do it in two ways. She needs to do it with humor, but she also needs to make it very clear you back off my family. You can say whatever you want about me but you back off my family. You want to have a fight, we'll fight but let's fight fair. Let's fight on the issues. So if she comes out and she has a moment of surgical strength where it is just, you back off my family and maybe follow it with a funny line. She has a moment where she's endearing and strong at the same time and she doesn't blow the rest of the speech, this is going to backfire and people are going to it is going to make her stronger.

You know, that's the thing that the Democrats don't understand and they really I mean, they're going to be in for it on this one. Strength is your weakness is your strength.

(OUT 11:42)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Bud in New Mexico. Hello, Bud.

CALLER: Hello, Glenn. I'm just wondering what P. Diddy has against black people because in the comment that he says about black people and crack heads, he uses it all in one sentence and it kind of flows together and he sounds like he's calling black people, all black people crack heads.

GLENN: No, you just did. I don't think P. Diddy did. Play it back. Stu, did you notice? Did you notice what Bud just did?

STU: Wait. Bud, are you a Democrat?

CALLER: No, I am not.

STU: Okay, then he did say. He did.

GLENN: That's what I heard. Bud, you may not think so. You may protest all you want, but I think I can see the intent of your heart here and you're calling all black people crack heads. Here's P. Diddy and what he said.

P. DIDDY: What is the reality in Alaska? There's not even no crack heads in Alaska, no black people. There's not even no like

CALLER: Boy, it sounds like it to me.

GLENN: Of course, Mr. Racist, it sounds like it to you. To the rest of America they know that he was talking about crack heads and then African Americans and then there's no and then that, also that other one that he didn't say but we know he was probably talking about, you know, angels that support Barack Obama or something like that.

CALLER: Well, maybe if I start listening to more of his music, I should say any of his music, maybe I would be able to understand him better, right?

GLENN: Yeah. Well, of course you won't because racists don't usually own P. Diddy music. Could you play it back again? What does he say, the third one? What is it?

P. DIDDY: What is the reality in Alaska? There's not even no crack heads in Alaska, no black people, there ain't even no, like

GLENN: No like what?

P. DIDDY: Crime or, like foreign policies. Y'all may be

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Go back. What does he say again? He says there's no crack heads, no blacks, no crime.

P. DIDDY: Crime or, like, foreign policies.

GLENN: I'm trying to Stu, can you help me out here?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Can you help me?

STU: This is the greatest thing I've ever heard in my life.

P. DIDDY: Crime or, like, foreign policies.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: What is he talking about?

STU: There's no foreign policies in Alaska (laughing).

GLENN: Which brings me right back to crack heads. Can WE go back and listen to this? Okay, there's two options, two options. One, he's as dumb as a box of rocks. A second one

STU: Stop. That's all you need.

GLENN: No, the second one is he's it's dawning on him as he gets to the third one how racist he is and then he's like, uh oh, this isn't good, let me talk about something else. Now listen, just give that theory a thought, that he's realizing he's a racist. Listen to this.

P. DIDDY: There's not even no crack heads in Alaska

GLENN: Now that's the first one. Hang on just a second. He said no crack heads in Alaska. And he realizes that he's already said no blacks in Alaska earlier. So that's the first thing. You notice that little pause where he's like, uh oh. That's when he hears in his head, uh oh, might be a racist. But it doesn't stop him. Go ahead.

P. DIDDY: In Alaska, no black people, there's not even no, like

GLENN: This is where he says, oh, no, finish the sentence, come up with something, there's no

P. DIDDY: Crime or, like, foreign policy.

GLENN: "Oh, foreign policy, let me stop with foreign policy." Or is he just dumb as a box of rocks?

STU: It's plausible, although I don't think

GLENN: Which is more likely? Dumb as a box of rocks or a racist?

STU: It's got to be dumb as a box of rocks, I think.

GLENN: Over racist?

STU: Yeah, I don't think he

GLENN: How about dumb racist?

STU: Well, certainly if a white person said it, he would be racist. But

GLENN: And if a white person said it and if a white person said it exactly the way he did, they would be a white racist dummy.

STU: Oh, no doubt about it.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But that's not the case here, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: As you can see, I think you can kind of see him having absolutely no idea. First of all, the foreign policies is a giveaway. But I love it, think of how giant the question mark is after he says the word "Crime." Like if you were reading the sentence and you needed to pronounce it the way he's pronouncing it, how large would you have to make the question mark on the piece of paper to pronounce it like this?

P. DIDDY: Crime?

STU: Crime?

P. DIDDY: Crime?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Amazing.

STU: We should play this video every this is the greatest piece of audio I've ever heard. Can we hear the whole thing one more time? Just in context.

GLENN: Hang on. Go ahead.

P. DIDDY: What is the reality in Alaska? What is there's not even no crack heads in Alaska, no black people. There's not even no, like... crime or, like, foreign policies. Y'all may be versed on foreign policies. Y'all need to get versed on black policies and youth policies. We're the future.

GLENN: They need Alaska needs black policies?

DAN: Thought they didn't have any black people.

GLENN: Could you go back and read the Martin Luther King speech?

STU: Why would you need black policies if you had no black people? That doesn't make any sense. I don't think he's thought this through at all.

VOICE: Why.

VOICE: Oh, come on!

P. DIDDY: Crime?

The number of people serving life sentences now exceeds the entire prison population in 1970, according to newly-released data from the Sentencing Project. The continued growth of life sentences is largely the result of "tough on crime" policies pushed by legislators in the 1990s, including presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Biden has since apologized for backing those types of policies, but it seems he has yet to learn his lesson. Indeed, Biden is backing yet another criminal justice policy with disastrous consequences—mandatory drug treatment for all drug offenders.

Proponents of this policy argue that forced drug treatment will reduce drug usage and recidivism and save lives. But the evidence simply isn't on their side. Mandatory treatment isn't just patently unethical, it's also ineffective—and dangerous.

Many well-meaning people view mandatory treatment as a positive alternative to incarceration. But there's a reason that mandatory treatment is also known as "compulsory confinement." As author Maya Schenwar asks in The Guardian, "If shepherding live human bodies off to prison to isolate and manipulate them without their permission isn't ethical, why is shipping those bodies off to compulsory rehab an acceptable alternative?" Compulsory treatment isn't an alternative to incarceration. It is incarceration.

Compulsory treatment is also arguably a breach of international human rights agreements and ethical standards. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) have made it clear that the standards of ethical treatment also apply to the treatment of drug dependence—standards that include the right to autonomy and self-determination. Indeed, according to UNODC, "people who use or are dependent on drugs do not automatically lack the capacity to consent to treatment...consent of the patient should be obtained before any treatment intervention." Forced treatment violates a person's right to be free from non-consensual medical treatment.

It's a useless endeavor, anyway, because studies have shown that it doesn't improve outcomes in reducing drug use and criminal recidivism. A review of nine studies, published in the International Journal of Drug Policy, failed to find sufficient evidence that compulsory drug treatment approaches are effective. The results didn't suggest improved outcomes in reducing drug use among drug-dependent individuals enrolled in compulsory treatment. However, some studies did suggest potential harm.

According to one study, 33% of compulsorily-treated participants were reincarcerated, compared to a mere 5% of the non-treatment sample population. Moreover, rates of post-release illicit drug use were higher among those who received compulsory treatment. Even worse, a 2016 report from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health found that people who received involuntary treatment were more than twice as likely to die of an opioid-related overdose than those with a history of only voluntary treatment.

These findings echo studies published in medical journals like Addiction and BMJ. A study in Addiction found that involuntary drug treatment was a risk factor for a non-fatal drug overdose. Similarly, a study in BMJ found that patients who successfully completed inpatient detoxification were more likely than other patients to die within a year. The high rate of overdose deaths by people previously involuntarily treated is likely because most people who are taken involuntarily aren't ready to stop using drugs, authors of the Addiction study reported. That makes sense. People who aren't ready to get clean will likely use again when they are released. For them, the only post-treatment difference will be lower tolerance, thanks to forced detoxification and abstinence. Indeed, a loss of tolerance, combined with the lack of a desire to stop using drugs, likely puts compulsorily-treated patients at a higher risk of overdose.

The UNODC agrees. In their words, compulsory treatment is "expensive, not cost-effective, and neither benefits the individual nor the community." So, then, why would we even try?

Biden is right to look for ways to combat addiction and drug crime outside of the criminal justice system. But forced drug treatment for all drug offenders is a flawed, unethical policy, with deadly consequences. If the goal is to help people and reduce harm, then there are plenty of ways to get there. Mandatory treatment isn't one of them.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani joined Glenn Beck on Tuesday's radio program discuss the Senate's ongoing investigation into former vice president Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and reveal new bombshell documents he's currently releasing.

Giuliani told Glenn he has evidence of "very, very serious crime at the highest levels of government," that the "corrupt media" is doing everything in their power to discredit.

He also dropped some major, previously unreported news: not only was Hunter Biden under investigation in 2016, when then-Vice President Biden "forced" the firing of Ukraine's prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, but so was the vice president himself.

"Shokin can prove he was investigating Biden and his son. And I now have the prosecutorial documents that show, all during that period of time, not only was Hunter Biden under investigation -- Joe Biden was under investigation," Giuliani explained. "It wasn't just Hunter."

Watch this clip to get a rundown of everything Giuliani has uncovered so far.

For most Americans, the 1980s was marked by big hair, epic lightsaber battles, and school-skipping Ferris Bueller dancing his way into the hearts of millions.

But for Bernie Sanders — who, by the way, was at that time the oldest-looking 40-year-old in human history — the 1980s was a period of important personal milestones.

Prior to his successful 1980 campaign to become mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Sanders was mostly known around the Green Mountain State as a crazy, wildly idealistic socialist. (Think Karl Marx meets Don Quixote.) But everything started to change for Sanders when he became famous—or, in the eyes of many, notorious—for being "America's socialist mayor."

As mayor, Sanders' radical ideas were finally given the attention he had always craved but couldn't manage to capture. This makes this period of his career particularly interesting to study. Unlike today, the Bernie Sanders of the 1980s wasn't concerned with winning over an entire nation — just the wave of far-left New York City exiles that flooded Vermont in the 1960s and 1970s — and he was much more willing to openly align himself with local and national socialist and communist parties.

Over the past few weeks, I have been reading news reports of Sanders recorded in the 1980s — because, you know, that's how guys like me spend their Saturday nights — and what I've found is pretty remarkable.

For starters, Sanders had (during the height of the Soviet Union) a very cozy relationship with people who openly advocated for Marxism and communism. He was an elector for the Socialist Workers Party and promoted the party's presidential candidates in 1980 and 1984.

To say the Socialist Workers Party was radical would be a tremendous understatement. It was widely known SWP was a communist organization mostly dedicated to the teachings of Marx and Leon Trotsky, one of the leaders of the Russian Revolution.

Among other radical things I've discovered in interviews Sanders conducted with the SWP's newspaper — appropriately named The Militant (seriously, you can't make this stuff up) — is a statement by Sanders published in June 1981 suggesting that some police departments "are dominated by fascists and Nazis," a comment that is just now being rediscovered for the first time in decades.

In 1980, Sanders lauded the Socialist Workers Party's "continued defense of the Cuban revolution." And later in the 1980s, Sanders reportedly endorsed a collection of speeches by the socialist Sandinistas in Nicaragua, even though there had been widespread media reports of the Sandinistas' many human rights violations prior to Sanders' endorsement, including "restrictions on free movement; torture; denial of due process; lack of freedom of thought, conscience and religion; denial of the right of association and of free labor unions."

Sanders also traveled to Nicaragua and met with socialist President Daniel Ortega. He later called the trip a "profoundly emotional experience."

Sanders also traveled to Nicaragua and met with socialist President Daniel Ortega. He later called the trip a "profoundly emotional experience."

Comrade Bernie's disturbing Marxist past, which is far more extensive than what can be covered in this short article, shouldn't be treated as a mere historical footnote. It clearly illustrates that Sanders' brand of "democratic socialism" is much more than a $15 minimum wage and calls for single-payer health care. It's full of Marxist philosophy, radical revolutionary thinking, anti-police rhetoric, and even support for authoritarian governments.

Millions of Americans have been tricked into thinking Sanders isn't the radical communist the historical record — and even Sanders' own words — clearly show that he is. But the deeper I have dug into Comrade Bernie's past, the more evident it has become that his thinking is much darker and more dangerous and twisted than many of his followers ever imagined.

Tomorrow night, don't miss Glenn Beck's special exposing the radicals who are running Bernie Sanders' campaign. From top to bottom, his campaign is staffed with hard-left extremists who are eager to burn down the system. The threat to our constitution is very real from Bernie's team, and it's unlike anything we've ever seen before in a U.S. election.

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."
