Glenn Beck: Pirates of the Indian Ocean


Modern pirates without the cute hat or eye patch...

GLENN: By the way, let me talk about something else. It's amazing, Stu and I were talking this morning. Is it amazing to you at all because you thought I was crazy for -- and I know you still do. Is it amazing to you at all to see the perfect storm start to come on shore?

STU: I hate these analogies but I mean, yes, there's a lot of stuff that you --

GLENN: What do you mean?

STU: The perfect storm comes on shore. Jack Bauer fights it off. Stop the printing presses now! I feel, I don't know, I don't like the analogy. You have.

GLENN: This is the first time you've said to me you don't like the analogy?

STU: Oh, it just feels dramatic. I don't know.

GLENN: It's weird, though to see how many of these things -- do you remember when we were talking about pirates?

STU: I do. I can't remember what the context was.

GLENN: But remember, I'm like, the world is becoming out of control. There are pirates again. And these pay rates, if things -- do you remember that?

STU: It's ridiculous. But you are right, yeah.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Johnny Depp was going to come.

GLENN: I know, you always saw the pirates of, your winch will come down below. It's amazing. And now you are starting to see all of these things that we have been talking about just roll up onto shore. And it's damn spooky quite honestly. This thing, do you know that the U.S. Navy is saying, don't know how to deal with these pirates. And you know what's even more amazing is you've got a show on animal planet, this is, what is it, whale hunting? What is the name of it?


STU: Whale Wars.

GLENN: Whale Wars. What they are doing is they are coming in and these are pirates. Play one of the commercials for it, will you?

VOICE: Some believe whaling should stop. Others don't. Fridays, two sides collide. The high seas battle, the whaling has intensified. Japan says the activists are horrored. We have never stood by to see a whale die and we never will. But is one whale's life worth war? Until you find something worth dying for, you haven't really lived.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Until you found something worth dying for, you haven't really lived. Ooh. Whales? I mean, I can't bring myself to say I love the whales. I love the whales just as much as I love any other animal and it's great and everything, but really? Really? That's your priority? Life? To go in and pirate ships for whales? Something that is legal. I know, I know, I know. Now, let me ask you this: Let's just draw the line a little bit more from the pirates on Whale Wars and let's just look what's happening here. Here are environmental extremists that say they are not willing to see any whale die and they will die for that whale. They are a hero. Tonight on the animal planet. At the same time we're seeing, you know, green week. It is the environmental movement. But it's not the environmental movement like, hey, I care about the environment, and I do care. I really do care about whales and other animals. I do. I care about the planet. But I'm not willing to go and be a pirate for it. Afraid of whales! I'm not really willing to do that. Although you do get a cool eye patch, but you have to earn the reason to wear the eye patch. No, thank you. Well, where else is this happening? You have William Ayers now and there doesn't seem to be a backlash of a guy who is writing books. Do you remember what it was like when Ward Churchill came out and we found out and we all went, wait a minute action wait a minute. William Ayers is worse! He is a guy who's actually blown up federal buildings and is on television now saying that's not violence. They are trying to paint me into a dangerous guy. And at the same time he's coming out and saying that people, that, you know, that Fox is doing horrible things, that it's a virus, et cetera, et cetera. Well, if you really believe that, why didn't you just blow up Fox, William Ayers? I mean, as long as people don't die. This is the kind of place that we're going to. And let me speak not to the left. Let me speak to the right and the anarchists and anybody else who loves the Constitution, those people who just love the Constitution. You're going to have to ask yourself at one point, well, what is justified? Is it okay to do any of those things? No! You work inside the framework of the Constitution! This is what we are! We have our revolution every four and two years. We have it at the ballot box. And we are headed towards a nation on all sides that are starting to think these things and think it's okay to be a pirate. Well, what about, why are these pirates bad? Because you need oil? I thought oil was bad. There is no right and wrong anymore. At least that's what people are trying to tell you. It's only what's popular. You can do whatever you want as long as it's popular. That's a spooky world.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
