Glenn Beck: Double standard

Democratic Congressman Mahoney Fires Mistress

GLENN: I want to play the audio of a Democratic congressman that was firing his mistress. Why does this play a role? Well, it's not going to play a role. Let's be serious. If this was a Republican congressman, it would be everywhere. But here is a Democratic congressman. In fact, a guy who -- do you remember the big scandal with Mark Foley? Remember? Who was accused of writing e-mails to interns in a gay scandal? Nothing ever came of that but it not only -- not only did it lose the seat for congress for the Republicans in Florida but it also was the turning point and the final nail in the coffin for the Republican party. It was "I've had enough of the ethics, I've had enough of the scandal." Remember? This do-nothing congress, they haven't done anything and the world is on fire; why haven't they done anything. Where is the outrage? Where are the specials about broken Washington? Where are those things that happened? Where is the outrage that congress not only has done nothing but they are sleeping with corruption, that the members of congress who are in charge of policing the financial district are the ones, the Democrats are the ones who brought it on. Where is the big reports on Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd? Where's the outrage about how they've done absolutely nothing? Where is the outrage from the media on the partisanship? Where is the outrage on the scandals?

Charlie Rangel, now the replacement of Mark Foley, the guy who ran his campaign on a more moral America. Here he is trying to fire his mistress on the phone.

VOICE: You're fired. Do you hear me? Don't tell me whether it's correct or not.

VOICE: Tell me why else I'm fired.

VOICE: There's no why else.

VOICE: Yeah, there is.

VOICE: No, it's you're fired because I said that you, you know, I'm the judge and the jury, okay? You're fired. Do you hear me? Call what's her name. Today was your last day. If you want to keep on thinking, you know, that I'm not being fair or somehow this is a negotiation, this is not a negotiation, okay? You know, you're not in a position to negotiate with me on this, okay? It's my decision, okay? You work at my pleasure. Do you understand what that means?

VOICE: What does it mean?

VOICE: It means that you work at my pleasure. If you do the job that I think that you should do, you get to keep your job. Whenever I don't feel like you are doing your job, then you lose your job. And guess what? The only person that matters is guess who? Me. Do you understand that? That's the way life really is. This is how it works.

VOICE: You know you are upset about something else.

GLENN: Stop. She is trying to bait him. She is trying to get him to admit to the affair. Now, do you have any idea why she broke up with him? Dan, do you know? Congressman Tim Mahoney, Democrat of Florida whose campaign was a world that is safer and more moral, that's what he promised, a world that is safer and more moral. In fact, his TV campaign ads featured a picture of him with his wife Terry in the line restoring America's values begin at home. Do you know why she was breaking up with him?

DAN: I do not, Glenn. Shockingly I haven't seen much about this story in the news.

GLENN: Oh, you haven't? It's weird. It isn't everywhere? Stu, you've seen this on all the nightly news and everything, right?

STU: Well, I know there's all the reports about how this is going to turn the election against the Democrats for corruption. I know that there's that going on, but --

GLENN: I haven't seen that one.

STU: Well, people -- they are thinking about how to approach it.

GLENN: Okay. Restoring America's values begin at home. How exactly, why is she breaking up? Why does she decide to -- why is she mad at him? Apparently, apparently she told ABC News -- or yeah, ABC News that she sought to break off the affair when she learned that Mahoney was allegedly involved in other extramarital relationships at the same time. When you can't trust the guy who's cheating on his wife with you, who can you trust? He just said, "You work at my pleasure." I don't know if he understood that. It's "Work at my pleasure" or "Work for my pleasure," I'm not sure. But "Work at my pleasure" is I'm sure what he meant. He said, if you do the job that I think you should do, then you keep your job. Whenever I feel like you are not doing your job, then you lose your job. And guess what? The only person that matters is, guess who? Me? You understand that? That's the way life really is. That's how it works. Gosh, that doesn't sound like a Democrat. I wish she had a union she could go to. He said, "You're fired, do you hear me? Don't tell me whether it's correct or not. You're fired." "Tell me why else I'm fired." "There is no why R why else." "You are firing me for other reasons and you are not man enough to say it. So why don't you say it."

Well, why do you think? He is being set up by her. There is no white hat in this. They are both bad. The question is where's the media? By the way, they gave her $61,000 and $60,000 in legal fees. Oh, by the way, you know how the big scandal -- Stu, do you remember Mark Foley. What happened to that one? Because there was a lot of problems in that one, right? There was -- oh, who was it? Wasn't somebody accused of knowing?

STU: Yeah, they were going after the Republican leadership.

GLENN: The Republican leadership.

STU: They should have stopped it because they knew.

GLENN: That's right. The head of the caucus knew and they should have -- and then they should have said something. And then they were looking for connections. It was never proven but they were looking for connections that everybody knew and everybody was going in on it and everybody was just, shhh, keep it quiet until after the election.

Senior dim I can leaders in the house of representatives including representative Rahm Emmanuel, the chair of the Democratic caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his reelection campaign according to the staff of Mahoney. A spokesperson for Emmanuel denies that account but Rahm Emmanuel did confront Mahoney upon hearing a rumor about an affair in 2007 and told him that he was in public life and he had a responsibility to act accordingly. Spokesperson added that it was a private conversation and had nothing to do with Mahoney's reelection prospects.

Well, wait a minute. Why didn't they investigate this? Why didn't they go off on it? Emmanuel's spokesperson said Emmanuel had no other further contacts with Mahoney on the subject and didn't know the woman involved worked on Mahoney's congressional staff until informed by ABC News. He was busy in his office with his mistress working on a safer, more moral world, restoring America's values begins at home, as soon as I get there.

STU: I hadn't heard that part about the leadership potentially helping him. I mean, that is the exact same story. Unless the media is just homophobic because maybe they just are afraid of gay people.


STU: This is certainly how it would be spun if it was the other way.

GLENN: No, no, they are not homophobic.

STU: Are you sure because they --

GLENN: Barney Frank, he's got his gay lover or boyfriend or husband, whatever he -- I don't know what he called him, his significant other that was working at Fannie Mae. I want to say it's Freddie because I don't want to say it's Fannie when -- anyway, had his lover working there, was one of the directors that helped push low income housing, helped push for lower standards for mortgages.

STU: The case you seem to be making is that they would just do whatever favor they are parting. That's just -- I know that's not what you mean because that's such a crazy thought in politics.

GLENN: Unless it's too politically incorrect to go after and even ask the question, isn't there a conflict of interest with you on banking committee for oversight and you pushing for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, pushing for more loans and lower standards when your spouse or whatever is a director in that organization, also pushing for lower standards? Isn't there some conflict of interest? Is it a possibility that they are just doing it because it would hurt their side in the media?

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, including fentanyl, but he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" she said.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'"
