Glenn Beck: Inauguration low lights

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.

 

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
