Glenn Beck: Slammin Sarah

GLENN: She was fantastic! I challenge you to name the speech given by any politician of a conservative bent you know what, let's make it any politician, that was that good since Ronald Reagan. I watched it with a group of people last night and I said that about halfway through. I said, I'm watching Ronald Reagan in a skirt. It's fantastic. And I don't think I've ever thought of watching Ronald Reagan in a skirt would be fantastic, but last night it was. Here's a woman who let me tell you something. A lot of people try to give speeches and they can't. Rudy Giuliani, oh, please, sit down. Was anybody else going, okay, Rudy, we got it, move on. I like Rudy Giuliani. You know, he's a good guy. He did a lot of great things for New York. He is America's mayor, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Why do I have to say that? It's like John McCain. "Well, he is a war hero." We know. Has anybody else gotten to the point with John McCain to where if they tell the story one more time, I don't need the story. I get it. I get it. I mean, the guy is a legitimate hero. There are very few people that have done what he has done, but I get it already. The same thing with Rudy Giuliani. You know what? We had money riding on if he was going to say, "You know I was there for 9/11." We get it. We know, we know. Rudy Giuliani, I mean, he tried to give a speech. That's what he was doing. Sarah Palin didn't try to give a speech. She gave one.

Do you notice that you know what, it's exactly what I told you yesterday. She doesn't have to get up and say, "I'm like you. I like Amtrak." I like Amtrak? That's not like me. I don't know anybody who likes Amtrak except Joe Biden. "I'm like you. That's why I spent $97 going to work and $97 coming home from work." Oh, yeah. Me, too... not so much. All these politicians on both sides of the aisle. John McCain, "How many houses do you have?" "I have to have somebody from my office get..." you don't know how many houses you have? I do. One. Most of America does. One. I mean, what is the number? You know it's kind of like the Tootsie pop. How many licks does it take to get to how many houses do you have to have before you forget, stop counting? You know, is it two, is it three? Is it over five? I want to know what the number is when you start saying, "Yeah, man, I can't even count them anymore. Oh, I stopped counting a long time ago." Seven is the number. But you know what? I don't have a problem if you have seven houses. You want to have seventeen houses, I don't care. Just don't try to come out and say, "Hang on, just calculating, calculating. That doesn't make me like the average person." You're not the average person! Have you heard the story about how you used to give the thumbs up as they drag you out of the bamboo cage and beat you for 48 hours? You're not the average person! You're not like me! I've never done that! I don't know if I could ever do that! It's okay to be different.

So yesterday I said to you Sarah Palin needs to show you that she is just like you without ever saying "I'm just like you." You know when it happened for me last night with Sarah Palin? I remember my first Palin experience. The first time it happened with me with Sarah Palin was last night when she said, "Fellow citizens..." oh, my gosh. I'm turning into Chris Matthews! I got a chill going up my leg! No, sorry. Just wet myself. Glad we weren't watching at my house. When she said "Fellow citizens," I recognized that I felt different. I felt different. When she said it, it was like a friend. It was like she was one of us. You know what I mean? She was she's me there. She's you there. She wasn't somebody who is, "Fellow citizens." When John McCain says "My friends," does that ring true to you at all? He's not my friend. I mean, I like him, I respect him, but he's not my friend. And when he says it over and over and over again, "My friend." When Governor Palin said "Fellow citizens," it felt right to me. She felt like me when she and I don't know about anybody else who has if you have a child of special needs, I would love to hear from you today. I would love to know if you felt like I did, and I know this is a small section of society. Well, how much do we know, Joe? Did you look that number up? How many people are affected with a child of special needs? I'd like to know that number because I never saw this one coming. First of all, when her daughter was sitting there holding Trig and she licked her hand to put Trig's hair down, a rush came to me. These people are like my family. When she licked her hand and did that, you know what it made me think of? Where did she learn that? Mom. And suddenly I saw mom licking, you know, licking her fingers and then doing that to my head. My mother used to do that. When I was a kid, we would be out some place and she would say, why didn't you comb your hair. And then she would lick her hand and she would try to make the little cowlicks stay down on my did anybody else's mom do that? So all of a sudden Sarah Palin, I saw her with her children just as I could see my mother with her children, except my mom wasn't nearly as smoking hot as Sarah Palin. I'm just sayin'. Not that I've ever thought of my mother or wanted I mean, this is going down a really creepy road. So maybe we should stick to politics.

When she stood up and she said about children can be I don't know if she actually said children can be nightmares. Did she say that? Did she say that, Stu, last night? Did she say something like, boy, children can just, you want to kill yourself on children. Was that just something I heard when she started talking about children? It was just me? Okay. But then she said, you know, they can be your greatest joy, and I thought she was going to go into our daughter and then she went into Trig, her son with Down Syndrome. And when she said, "You have an advocate in the White House," I cried. I didn't see that coming. I've never felt like I needed an advocate in the White House. I've never I'm not somebody for the you know, I'm not for or against the American you know, the disabilities act, the Americans with Disabilities Act. I mean, look. You know, whatever. I want to make sure you can get to work and everything else, but I haven't felt like I needed an advocate for the government, and I still don't want an advocate in the government fighting for my special interest I don't want that. I don't need it. Thank you. We're doing just fine. However, to be able to have somebody in the White House who not only can relate to it but also sees it as the blessing that it truly is, I guess maybe that's why I don't need an advocate. Because kids with special needs, it's a privilege. It's an honor. It's a remarkable responsibility. But we've been entrusted with these gifts.

That's what first attracted me to Sarah Palin was the story about the birth of her son Trig, the way she spoke. I had never heard anybody who didn't have any experience with special needs children express it that way, about what a gift they are. When she said that, that touched me. And then the end, and maybe it's just because of my personal thing. I don't know if anybody else that doesn't have special needs child felt this way. But when she stood there at the end with her newborn child with Down Syndrome, the same child that the media has drug through the mud and said it's not her child, boy. She's just like me.

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...
