Glenn Beck: Keith 'drama queen' Olbermann



GLENN: Okay. Now let me, let me play this with Keith Olbermann last night. Then we're going to get into it after the break. Here's Keith Olbermann last night after they played a 9/11 video just to remind us about 9/11. Keith Olbermann went on a little tirade and he was very disappointed in the Republican party. Here he is.

OLBERMANN: Tom, Chuck, great. Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd, we'll be back with you later on in the broadcast. I'm sorry. It's necessary to say this, and I wanted to separate myself from the others on the air about this. If at this late date any television network on its own accord showed that much videotape and that much graphic videotape of 9/11, I speak as somebody who lost a few friends there, it we would be rightly eviscerated at all quarters perhaps by the Republican party itself for exploiting the memories of the dead and perhaps even for trying to evoke that pain again. If you reacted to that videotape the way I can, I apologize. It is a subject of great pain for many of us still and was probably not appropriate to be shown. We'll continue in a moment.

GLENN: Wow. I would like to see that 9/11 video every day at noon. I would like to know what it is like to show the World Trade Centers collapsing. I know because on the fifth anniversary that images of the World Trade Centers are in the archive and they're in the vault and they are not for broadcast. That had to go all the way up to the standards and practice and back down and then back up and then back down and then back up and then back down. I believe it went all the way to the president of CNN when I wanted to show those images. In the end I believe we had to make I could be wrong on this but I believe we had to make a compromise that it could only be shown in a screen behind me and not actually on a full screen. Is that true, Stu? Do you remember? I know that was one of the compromises kicked around. I can't remember if that's if we actually had to do that.

STU: I think that is what happened at the end, wasn't it?

GLENN: Yeah, I'm pretty sure but I can't we may have won to have it on full screen.

The media and this is all networks have decided, because they know better than you, that you should not see those. It's too painful for you to see those. It brings up too many bad memories. You know what? I think we should show it. I think we should show it every day at the top of every hour at noon. Boom, show it: Hey, America, just want to remind you, this is what happened to us. Some of us in New York are reminded like I was just yesterday when I was at WOR, across the street from the giant hole that is there. You need to be reminded once that while. Your thoughts in a second. 888 727 BECK.

(OUT 11:30)

GLENN: All right, give me a little bit of the 9/11 video from last night. And Dan, you should include this in the newsletter or put it up on the website today. I thought by the way, I thought before John McCain walked out, he actually, that film on him was fantastic, just fantastic. I learned stuff on John McCain I didn't know but then he came out and he told he's going to tell another 20 minutes of the story. I know it, John! Oh, and then he started in on the oh, jeez, I'm sorry, I don't mean to go into this story but then he started in on the whole, you know, "Hi, let me tell you a story, why I'm running, a little Sally Muckenfutch, a little Sally Muckenfutch. She's a toothpick maker in Akron, Ohio: She's the one who used to whittle little toothpicks and put them in little boxes of 300. Little Sally Muckenfutch has been put out of the toothpick industry because the toothpick industry is going away because well, because, you know, now the Chinese can make toothpicks a lot faster and so they're making toothpicks now and that's all the skill she has. It wasn't even a good job even when she had it because I mean, how many toothpicks do you use. You know, use a toothpick now and then, you got a little steak there and you go in and get that box enthusiasm think might have been handed down to you from your parents, you know. I don't ever remember going into the store and buying toothpicks. I just, for some reason I have a box of toothpicks. I don't know how they I may have purchased them with the house that I own. I don't know. You know, 300. Unless you're, you know... (mumbling) And you're throwing like a cocktail party, you don't go through toothpicks a lot or very fast. So Sally Muckenfutch can no longer make toothpicks. So she was down and she was only making $1.25 an hour making, whittling toothpicks and now she can't find a job and that's why I'm doing..." shut up! Just show the film about you.

And then earlier they showed this film on 9/11. Here's just a little bit of it.

VOICE: It is a war we never chose to fight and for too long we'd look the other way. But the enemy is wrong. This is a war America will win. We'll have a President who knows how. We remember where we were that day, what happened.

GLENN: These are pictures of the World Trade Center.

VOICE: What they were doing, how our lives changed. We remember buildings burning, bodies falling. So many stories of bravery. We remember.

GLENN: They don't show any bodies in this, no people.

VOICE: We remember their beautiful faces and those loving voices now, gone forever.

GLENN: We need to okay, stop, that's enough. We need to put this up on the website because in it the only thing it says about President is again the terrorists are wrong because we will have a President that understands what we're facing. The DNC could play this if their candidate understood what we were facing. The DNC could play this. There was no Republican anything in this. It was just a reminder of where we are. And Olbermann came out after Tom Brokaw said this. Do you have the Tom Brokaw? Here's what Tom Brokaw said after this was played.

BROKAW: To the victims of 9/11 and to the continuing war on terrorism, a lot of talk in this hall tonight about Islamic rage and Islamic terrorism, accusations. This, by the way, is Bud Day, World War II veteran as well as a Korean War veteran who served with John McCain and that's the word, and suffered with him at the Hanoi Hilton. At any rate, Keith, what I wanted to say is that a large part of what this convention has all been about is about John McCain can lead during a time of war. The real vulnerability for Barack Obama, the polls that we've seen up to this point is whether or not he's the riskier choice to lead this country and whether he's qualified to be a commander in chief. He loses by pretty significant amounts on both those counts and that's why we've been hearing so much about John McCain's military background, his service, his determination to see it through because once again, it's not only an objective problem out there but it's one of the ways of trying to reach out to those independents, those Reagan Democrats, if you will, and say come to our side because America's security is at stake. That will be both

GLENN: Okay. Stop just a second, stop. So that is the and are you trying to tell me that this isn't a real problem? Are you trying to tell me well, let me ask you this: Should the news remind us of the pain that a lot of people are feeling as they pull up to a gas pump? Should the media, should Barack Obama is it fair to have Barack Obama talk about how many people are struggling because they lost their house? Doesn't that just remind them of the pain they've gone through?

Now, I know you can't compare the pain of someone dying in the World Trade Center to that. I get it. But it's an issue. You can't take issues off the table.

You know, I have told you before in the last that I am a one issue person and I have been. After September 11th I was a one issue guy. Well, this is the first election since 9/11 that I am not a one issue guy. I'm not. I am a "That issue" guy still but there are other things now that have come to play that are just as big. The Islamic extremist threat has not diminished. I don't know if anybody noticed what Sarkozy said yesterday. Was it yesterday in Syria? He said we are going to wake up one morning and we will see that Israel has struck Iran. Iran must stop the development of their nuclear program. They must stop because we're going to wake up that day, the Israelis have struck and we will have to ask ourselves, was it right? Was it the only thing that they could have done? But it will be a calamity. And he's right. It will be a global calamity if Israel no when Israel strikes. Because no one will stand up to Iran, and Russia is a growing threat that is going to block everyone because Russia and Iran are allies. The axis power is developing. It is Russia, it is Venezuela, Iran, Cuba, Syria, Hezbollah. The radicals in Egypt. Syria I mean, Saudi Arabia, believe it or not, is actually on our side when it comes to this. Not because they love us so much or anything else but because they know how dangerous Iran is. It will be a global catastrophe the day someone strikes Israel. I can't imagine it just going away. Maybe it will. Maybe it will just be fine. Maybe we just send some drones in and they bomb it and it's all fine and everything's great. I don't think so, but I hope I'm wrong. I've been wrong before. Hopefully I'm wrong on that one. But it is an issue, and 9/11 is still an issue, and it should be.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
