Glenn Beck: Keith 'drama queen' Olbermann


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/LDx80bnFrVs&hl=en&fs=1 expand=1]

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.

(BREAK)

(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.

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 ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.
