Glenn Beck: Iraqi throws shoes at Bush

(Jingle Bells playing)

GLENN: It's another Christmas song I hate.

STU: This is to bring you to the mood of Christmas, Glenn. It's only a few more days.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? How can you get in the mood when President Bush was almost hit by a shoe yesterday?

STU: The attack of the killer shoe was a very tense situation.

GLENN: Was that -- did you not want him to do the Austin Powers? "A shoe? Who throws a shoe?"

STU: He had a pretty funny comeback to that.

GLENN: He did. You know what, did anybody else think, "He's a tough guy, man." You see him brush off the secret service like, "I got it, was a shoe. " Did you see that?

STU: What did he say, something about Size 10s or something?

DAN: He goes, I don't know what the guy believes in, but I could see his sole. That was one joke I saw. Quack, quack. George.

GLENN: That really hurts. That really hurts.

STU: Yeah, I thought he looked pretty solid there. I mean, he was -- 

GLENN: I mean, let's just get into this. Stop the music, for the love of Pete. I hate this song.

STU: That was Wayne Newton. That was the Wayne Newton.

DAN: Wait a minute. That was Wayne?

GLENN: No it wasn't. All right. Anyway, apparently the soles of the shoes are considered the ultimate insult in the Arab world. I mean, what? How can we expect to get along with these people? What is -- so anyway, you know, remember when they pulled down the -- I'm sorry. Do you remember when we pulled down the statue of Saddam Hussein? They all attacked it with their shoes. Do you remember seeing that? I didn't even think about that except they were beating him with the shoes, but now I understand it. The soles of the shoes are the ultimate insult in the Arab world. We're going to post the video in the newsletter today. It's free at GlennBeck.com if you want that. But the guy stands up and fires that shoe at the President, and I've got to tell you, this guy must be -- I don't know if he's on Olympic shoe toss team or what, but he had a good arm. I mean, I'm just saying, Yankees, you should give him a look. I mean, you didn't make the playoffs this year. I'm just trying to help out. But I think the President was equally as impressive. He had -- I mean, does he have like cat-like reflexes? It was like... I mean, he was just there. Ducked down and avoided the incoming shoe, then popped back -- it was like Whack-a-Mole. Just pop back up, then the guy threw the other shoe, which was amazing that he could get the other shoe off and throw it. It was a little high and wide this time, but he threw it before security could tackle. I mean, that's pretty crappy security. I think all reporters should have to do what we have to do at the airport, take your shoes off. But I think he handled it really well. Poise, class. Wouldn't you be a little freaked if you're the President of the United States and you're in Iraq and somebody throws a shoe at you? I mean, you don't know what's coming at you. Could be one of those, you know, those Chinese stars? I'm just saying. It could have been. Who knows? What are those stars called? You know those martial arts stars? Could have been one of those. Bush, I mean, he just waved off the lead secret service agent just like, "It's a shoe." I liked it.

Now many of the Iraqi reporters immediately apologized to the President and it was, in fact, an Iraqi journalist who first tackled the shoe-tossing idiot, and that's the story. But here's the story that's going to be coming out in the mainstream media that will only get worse as Jon Stewart and his ilk play the incident and that is Bush cowered at the attack. That's what one of the reports said, that he cowered at the attack. Watch the tape, man. Bush is like rock solid. He looks like Sugar Ray Leonard out there, he was so quick. Plus, what is he supposed to do? Just sit there and take a Hushpuppy to the head? "I just want to... okay, that or..." what was he supposed to do? Plus, I thought this was the most dangerous place in the world. I mean, is it at all possible that a shoe could have been a shoe bomb? Yet the President, you know, did the exact opposite of cowering, but the media liked to cover it as cowering. Watch it yourself. A reporter from the Modesto Bee, which, if you can't trust the paper called the Bee, what -- no, come on. You had, like, the newsletter. When you were in second grade, you had the Bee newsletter, didn't you? "We're just buzzing with all kinds of news. Bzzz." The Modesto Bee. Anyway, they opined that there is no doubt that many Iraqis will view his outburst as courageous. Wow. Maybe they're calling this bravery because they are not used to this freedom thing yet.

Under Saddam Hussein that would be 100% without a doubt considered bravery, you know, because if the guy tried to toss the shoes at Saddam Hussein, I guarantee you that Saddam would have fed the guy to a pet tiger and watched him get eaten for kicks. So far that I know, George Bush hasn't done that. Under a free Iraq, this is just another stupid idiot protestor trying to draw attention to himself. That's the great thing about free societies. You can throw a shoe at the President and not get a death sentence! How sweet is that? But hey, no, seriously, Iraq, glad everybody appreciates the no more "Mass grave situation" thing. No, seriously, you'd like Saddam back, is that it? You miss the fresh smell of rotting corpses? Did you like the "If you say something about Saddam, you and your entire family will be raped, tortured and killed" policy? Is that what you really -- I know that you're upset and everything that the government, you know, the government-issued rapes have now ended, but trust me, the freedom thing might work out into your favor. I'm just saying. Because you can actually try to humiliate the President and keep all of your limbs. Who would have thunk it? I mean, really?

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'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.
