Glenn Beck: Inauguration low lights




**WARNING: Watch this video at your own risk! Any vomiting, gnashing of teeth, gauging of eyes or suicide is the result of your choice to watch Helen Thomas on video. The Glenn Beck Program assumes no responsibility for your decision to watch the old hag.

GLENN: I didn't think Barack Obama's speech was all that. I mean, it was nice and it was great and I was a little shocked that there wasn't some more -- it was just, it was fingerprintless, and it wasn't stirring. I mean, this guy has given stirring speeches of, "I have... to go... to the bathroom," and it's inspiring. Yesterday I didn't really -- were you inspired by that? I didn't really -- I mean, it was nice, don't get me wrong, but there wasn't -- there was not a single catch phrase in it, well, except for the end. I liked the end. Oh, what did the old preacher say? He said, when brown can stick around, when yella can be mella and white will do what's right. Oh, man. There's nothing better than on the day when we inaugurate an African-American that whity is called racist. I love that. It's the kind of "Bring is all together" that only Jeremiah Wright or apparently this preacher that Barack Obama knows. And USA Today described President Obama as smiling and nodding his head during that.

I was actually watching Fox and Friends. I was pissed that I wasn't on with them this morning because I'm driving in and I'm listening to them and they say, they said, "I just thought that was funny." Funny? He's praying to God, in a prayer he's praying to God for the day when brown can stick around. I don't know. Brown can be in the White House now, running the free world for four years. Maybe he means he's praying for the day when we can give him just eight. When brown can stick around, when yella can get mella. I don't know about you but those Asians are all hopped up on something. When yella can be mella. And when white can do what's right. Amazing, just amazing.

But then there was the balls that happened, and the green ball was going on and Al Gore went, of course, to the green ball, which is weird because he left in an SUV. You know, I just must have been one of those things, couldn't get a green car. Oh, if the government would just mandate that he would have driven a green hybrid, it would have been so much better. But there's no mandates there. So what was he supposed to do? And then Helen Thomas. Helen Thomas made quite a statement. Do you have it? Here it is.

THOMAS: If JFK was the most inspired president she knew, who is the least inspired? She says in her opinion...

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Who do you think it was? Who do you think that was? What a question. Probing minds want to know. Well, it is Helen Thomas. So maybe it was Franklin Pierce. Could have been. I think it was a couple of presidents before Abraham Lincoln. So might have been Franklin Pierce that she worked under, so to speak. I feel like the opposite of Homer Simpson. You know how he is like... mmm, doughnuts. You think that about Helen Thomas. You're like....

Fun Fact: Did you know vomir is the French translation for the English phrase to vomit.

Okay. Although, Helen Thomas naked with doughnuts? Never thought I could make a dream of a doughnut bad, did you? I did it. That's my job. Stretch the horizon, you know? Push the edges.

So she went on to answer this question and so much more. Listen up.

VOICE: President George W. Bush. You're quoted as saying he's the worst president in history.

THOMAS: That's because he came in with the whole idea of war. He misses most unkind. Not only that but his conservative views on everything. I'm a liberal. I was born a liberal.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Stop! She's a liberal? Wait a minute. She thinks that George Bush is the worst and she's a liberal? "That's because I'm a liberal. I was born a liberal." You were born a liberal? Hmmm. Well, that just goes to prove that you don't have to actually read anything, learn anything, study anything out, ask any tough questions, have any kind of introspection because "I was born a liberal." Oh, that's weird, I wasn't born with my views. I was born with rights. Liberals generally try to take them away. But I wasn't born with my views. But it's good to see that liberals can be.

THOMAS: I'll be one until I die. What else should the reporting be, when you see so much and when we have such great privilege and access to the truth.

VOICE: Well, you know, it's interesting because I'm sure somebody from the right would --

GLENN: Wait, did you -- hang on, I've got to hear this. Somebody from the right is sitting here. Go ahead.

VOICE: If you ask the question, what else should a reporter be and they would go, oh, I don't know, how about objective?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! Can we go back? Could we go back? Listen to this! Listen to this! Play it back. Tell me what sticks out. Go back to, "I'm a liberal. That's the only thing you should be."

VOICE: You know, it's interesting because I'm sure that if somebody from the right was sitting here, they would say if you asked the question, what else should a reporter be, they would say, "Oh, I don't know, how about objective?"

GLENN: Stop. Stu, before I hear her answer from a liberal that was born and going to die liberal, what sticks out in that question?

More Helen for the fellas...

STU: If someone from the right was there maybe?

GLENN: If?

STU: If. So there isn't one.

GLENN: No.

STU: That neither one of them.

GLENN: If someone from the right were here, they should say maybe objective, as opposed to, "Well, a lot of people, normal people, common sense people would say maybe a journalist should be balanced, objective. That's a right point of view." That's crazy people on the right, they just want you to be objective.

STU: Well, at least, you know, I would think if anyone, more than anyone would say that, even more than someone from the right, it would be in theory a journalist who is in theory has gone to school for decades to train themselves to be objective to cover stories without a liberal bias.

GLENN: That question doesn't say everything, it shows -- well, first of all, they are doing a story. Who is interested in Helen Thomas and asking her the question, "Who's the worst president," on inaugural day, "Who's the worst president." If I were sitting around in a meeting and I said, "Hey, guys, I'm going to ask Helen Thomas who she thinks the worst president is," don't you think everybody in the room would go, "George Bush"? Of course that's the answer. So where's the news there? And if it doesn't show the bias of the media on just "Let's trash George Bush" and the bias of the media, "Well, someone from the right should say you're objective." Not someone from the right saying, "Well, you should have the right, you should be conservative." Someone from the right saying you should be objective! Unbelievable. How does she respond? My head's starting to hurt.

THOMAS: You're not asking people not to think, not to care, are you?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! Not asking people to think? "You are not asking them to stop thinking, do you?" You didn't think! You were born this way! It doesn't require any thinking! You just know!

STU: Wow, she just equated being objective with not thinking.

GLENN: Or caring.

STU: Or caring. If that is not journalism in Washington.

GLENN: This, this has to be -- is this just audio or is this a --

STU: I think there's video, too.

DAN: Thankfully, thankfully there is video, Glenn, of this.

GLENN: What network did this? Can you ad the porn music? That is so hot. We've got the sexy video of Helen Thomas being objective. Mmm. This has to be on TV. Send this over to Fox. This is unbelievable.

DAN: Her answer continues, Glenn. I don't know if you --

GLENN: Oh, dear god. I don't know if I can take it. All right, go ahead.

THOMAS: You are asking them to give a fair reporting, both sides and so forth, and I did it. For 57 years I was never, never accused of bias in my copy.

GLENN: From everybody, except from everybody that wasn't liberal! Oh, jeez. Send that over to TV. Got to have that. Oh, America's got to see that. By the way, the people who are preaching to us, we all have to come together, yesterday in Houston defaced a George H. W. Bush statue that said "No more bush" and I think they've blurted out but it looks to be the shape of a Nazi symbol on it, a swastika. That's the first thing I think of when I think of the Bushes. Of course, not the Kennedys. I don't think that about the Kennedys even though Gerald P. Kennedy was the one who said we have nothing to worry about with Hitler and that Jewish problem that he's dealing with, none of our business. I definitely don't think, you know, swastika with the Kennedys. I immediately think of that with the Bushes.

 

The media went nuts after President Donald Trump said "Two Corinthians". But apparently, nobody cares when Joe Biden called the authors of Biblical Psalms "palmists" — twice.

During a Thanksgiving speech on Wednesday, Biden said, "I'm sure we can, we can pros-claim [sic] a palmist, with a palmist who wrote these following words, 'The lord is my strength and my shield and with my song, I give thanks to him.'"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere pondered whether Biden actually meant to quote a fortune teller instead of a psalmist, but ultimately decided the former vice president likely had no idea what he was reading.

They also discussed the hairline fractures Biden suffered in his right foot on Saturday while playing his dog, and Glenn tossed out a few headlines he thought might work just a little too well.

The Supreme Court slapped down New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 restrictions on religious gatherings Wednesday, arguing that strict limitations on the number of people in churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship — while liquor stores, bike shops, and many other non-religious places face few or no restrictions at all — are in violation of the First Amendment.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere applauded Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who reportedly cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch who took specific aim at Gov. Cuomo for limiting religious gatherings to as few as 10 people in some areas, while imposing "no capacity restrictions on certain businesses he considers 'essential'."

"It turns out the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists, and liquor stores," Gorsuch said. "Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers, and insurance agents are all essential too."

"Government is not free to disregard the 1st Amendment in times of crisis," Gorsuch wrote in a separate opinion.

Gov. Cuomo has since called the Supreme Court ruling "moot" and "irrelevant" because he had recently lifted restrictions in most of the affected areas.

"This is a trick they play all the time. They've done this with Second Amendment cases as well," Stu noted. "They'll put a ridiculous restriction in that's obviously not constitutional, keep it in place for a year while it goes through the courts, and right before it gets to the Supreme Court they withdraw the rule. So then the case gets thrown out because it's moot."

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

Wikimedia Commons

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."
