Glenn Beck: Pursuit, not guarantee




Helping Obama pays...

GLENN: How many times have I said it, too, that I don't say the things that I do because I want to. I don't want to believe these things but do you remember, America, when we were told we were crazy, when we -- could you please play the -- this is the Obama supporter during one of the campaign rallies, and we spent quite a few minutes on this and, boy, did I get the heat from saying, "Look what the man is creating." Listen to this.

VOICE: It was the most memorable time of my life. It was a touching moment. Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he's going to help me.

GLENN: If I help him, he's going to help me. Now, I want you to look at this in two ways. Stu, write this down so I don't forget. One, what is he creating; and two, disenfranchisement. Come back to disenfranchisement of this individual, okay? "If I help him, he'll help me." "I never have to worry about paying my gas or my mortgage. If I help him, he'll help me." Do you remember how we talked about that and how many of your friends said to you, "Oh, please, stop calling him a Marxist, stop calling him a socialist. He's not going to turn us into that." Well, he may not -- if he's not a socialist, if he's not a Marxist, then he must be a heroin dealer. I believe our new president is pushing a much more powerful version of heroin, and he is getting people all strung out. Anybody see Taken? Did you see the movie Taken? Stu, you saw it, right?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Holy cow.

STU: It was good. You didn't like it?

GLENN: I've got daughters. I've got three daughters. I don't want to go see Taken. Oh, my gosh. I was sitting there like... I don't want to watch this.

STU: Yeah, it was intense.

GLENN: Yeah, really intense. So what happened in Taken real quick? You got, you know, a split family, blah, blah, blah. Two girls go over to Paris. What happens?

STU: Well, one of them gets -- or both of them get Taken, hence the title.

GLENN: Kidnapped.

STU: Yeah, kidnapped. And without spoiling too much, basically they are taken into custody where they are going to be going into this sex slavery ring, and the way that they do that to get them to acquiesce to this is essentially get them hooked on heroin, therefore they're so dependent on the heroin that they --

GLENN: They will do whatever.

STU: They are easy to manage.

GLENN: Yeah, they are easy to manage. Get them hooked on heroin and these girls will be prostitutes because they are going to need the heroin. You think it's outrageous to say the president of the United States is pushing heroin. The heroin that he is pushing is government. Get them so strung out on government aid that they just can't live without it. Let me show you three examples. This is from his town meeting. If anybody's not watching his town meetings, boy, you should be watching them because you're seeing the future of America. Here are three questions that came at the new president Barack Obama yesterday. Question number one.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Go ahead.

VOICE: Oh, this is such a blessing to see you, Mr. President. Thank you for taking time out of your day. Oh, gracious God, thank you so much.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: All right, what's --

GLENN: Stop.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, gracious God, thank you so much. Are you thinking, wonder if I can get that guy's resume. Anyway, here he goes.

VOICE: Mr. President, my name is Julio Osegueda. I'm currently a student at Edison State College at my second semester. Okay, I've been at the same job which is McDonald's for four-and-a-half years.

GLENN: Stop. Who's surprised by that? Is there anybody? I have to tell you I was because I know managers at McDonald's. I can't imagine them keeping this guy around for four-and-a-half years. But oh gracious god, Ron decided, "I'm a clown. I wear big red shoes. Why not have somebody else take the focus off me for a while."

VOICE: Because of the fact that I can't find another job. Now, with the fact that I've been there for as long as I've been there, do you have any plan or any idea of making one that has been there for a long time receive any better benefits than what they've already received?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I tell you what, first of all --

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. Listen to what he's asking. I've been there... for four years... and I can't, I can't find another job. There might be a reason for that. Some people, you know, they're going to be working at McDonald's, and that's okay. There's nothing wrong with -- I was going to tell you a personal story, but I can't. Let me just tell you this. When did we become a nation where we find shame in working at McDonald's? When did we become a nation where it's just not good enough to work at a car dealership or a grocery store or whatever, that everybody has to be rich? Where, when did we become a nation where we all deserve the same thing? Or, we're all capable of the same thing? All men are created equal and they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights: The pursuit of life, liberty, of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You've got a life, you have liberty, and you can pursue your happiness. It goes back to one of our principles. The principles that we've been asking you to sign up for, that goes back to the principles. You're not guaranteed an equal outcome. You are guaranteed the right to pursue your happiness. But what is he asking for? An equal outcome. I've worked there for four-and-a-half years. I want more benefits. Do you have a plan? And the answer is -- I don't know what his answer is, but the answer is yes, it's card check. But card check really isn't even their plan. Oh, it's much more insidious than just card check, believe it or not. That is -- card check is what they're throwing out there and hoping that everybody will pay attention to card check because they've got another plan, and I'll share that in the upcoming days. But it ain't card check, gang.

So do you have a plan? No. No, I don't. No, I don't. You're just going to have to keep working, brother. You keep studying, you keep going to school. You got a job, you're going to school, good for you. You keep working. I don't have a plan for you to get extra benefits; you're working at McDonald's. The benefits are the benefits. I don't have anything to say about McDonald's, period. That's what the president should say. But what does he say?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: A couple of things I'd like to say. Number one, the fact that you are working as hard as you're working at a job that I know doesn't always pay as well as some other jobs is a source of pride for you that shows that you're doing a right thing.

GLENN: Good for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, the second thing is, is that you will actually benefit from the tax breaks that we're talking about. So you'll be able to keep a little bit of extra money because we're going to offset your payroll tax. That's going to --

GLENN: Stop, stop. I'm going to offset your payroll tax. So I am -- here I am, Uncle Obama. I'm here to give you something. So you're going to go ahead. You're going to benefit from voting for me.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's going to help. I don't -- I assume that you're not getting healthcare through your job and so one of the things that we want to do is reform the healthcare system so that you will have access to healthcare in your job. But the thing that I'm really --

GLENN: Okay, stop. Do you know how much a McDonald's hamburger is going to be if McDonald's has to pay for this guy, pay for his healthcare? I don't know what his -- I mean, I don't know what his deal is. He might be part time. I mean, now Obama is going to go ahead and either force McDonald's to pay for healthcare or -- no, no, no, he's going to make sure that all of us pay for this guy's healthcare. That's what Uncle Obama's going to do for you. He is Uncle Sam, and you should trust him as much as you trust Uncle Sam. And if you trust Uncle Sam, you're a dope.

Speaking of dope, how about our next heroin user? Can we go to the next? This is all from the press conference yesterday. There was this man that was, oh, praise Jesus that you're here. And then there's this individual.

VOICE: I respect you and I'm so grateful for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you.

VOICE: I've been praying for you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I believe in prayer. So I appreciate that.

VOICE: I have an urgent need.

GLENN: Good for you.

VOICE: Employment and homelessness, a very small vehicle for my family and I to live in. We need urgent, and housing authority have two years waiting list and we need something more than a vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well --

GLENN: Stop, stop. Please help. Now, let's be cold in a minute. First here's a woman who's living in her car. To tell you the truth -- and I hope she doesn't mind me sharing this. I won't identify. I have a member of our staff that lived in her car. She lived in her car with her mother. It's a long story, but she went to school with people not knowing that she lived in her car. The reason why she wanted to get into radio is because she used to hear my voice and she said it gave her hope that she could accomplish anything. She got to a radio station, our paths crossed, I heard her story much later but she told me the first time, "I want to work for you." I said, "Well, work hard." Every time our paths crossed, I was impressed by what she did. She wasn't just saying, "What can you do for me." Every time our paths crossed, I couldn't believe the accomplishments that she had done. So the last time I saw her, this is I think last Christmas a year ago, I got -- we were on the plane and I said to my whole team, "I want each one of you guys -- don't say anything. I just want each one of you guys to spend a few minutes with her. We get back on the plane, I want a report from all of you guys." "Well, what are we looking for?" "I just want you to find out if she's solid." Got back on the plane. I said, "Would she be somebody that could work with us? Is she good enough to work with with all of you guys?" They all had rave reviews. I hired her. A girl who lived in her car through high school. Government wasn't involved. I never gave her a handout. She earned it. She deserves to have self-respect because nobody brought her on. In fact, when we hired her, I told her immediate supervisor, "You be very clear with her. She could come out and she could fail, and we don't play a game of if you fail, you're gone. So this could set her back. She's got to succeed, but it's going to be up to her." She has succeeded. So here is the thing. You could have sympathy and you could allow people to continue to live in that state or you could encourage them and say, "You know what, I know it's really hard for you, but I'm the president of the United States. I see everybody. I'm not hear to help and give anyone a kitchen. I can't imagine what your life is like living in your car and having a kitchen. But you hold on and you keep working hard and don't you give up."

Now, people will say that's cold. In the long run that's what keeps somebody off of the heroin of government aid and that is slavery. Instead what does Obama do? Listen up.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I -- listen. What's your name? What's your name?

VOICE: It's Henrietta Hughes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Okay, Ms. Hughes, we're going to do everything we can to help you, but there are a lot of people like you and we're going to do everything we can. I'll have my staff talk to you after this, after the town hall, all right?

GLENN: Stop. For what? For what? I'm going to have her talk to you about what? What is the president of the United States going to do to get this woman a kitchen? And if he gets her a kitchen, how about me a kitchen? How about you a kitchen? Do you need a microwave oven? Have you had a flat tire? Could we call the president? And then can we just play the last one, Cut 4.

VOICE: Also, welcome, Mr. President.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you.

VOICE: And my question to you today is as you stated earlier, there are many of us here in the area that are unemployed and have been unemployed for sometime and probably some of us have large families.

GLENN: Listen to this family.

VOICE: And we have had the opportunity to receive unemployment but yet we have not been able to get any other type of governmental assistance to help us during this crisis so that we can kind of be able to take, you know, funds that we do have in unemployment to pay our bills. Usually what happens is when you apply for governmental assistance, they say, well, you make too much money. If you go from making $3,000 a year, a month to $1100 a month, how are you able to take care of your families? Why can't we have that to be automatic that goes along with your unemployment tenure that you can get government assistance that's an automatic for you?

GLENN: It's an automatic. How can I survive if I only get $1100 a month? I need $3,000 a month. Can't we get that automatic?

Look, I am for doing good for the poor. We just happen to disagree. I have a difference of opinion. I think the best way of doing good for the poor is to not make it easy in poverty but to lead people out, drive them out of poverty, make them uncomfortable. By the way, those words were not from just a hate monger like me. Those words were actually, that's a quote from Benjamin Franklin. What an evil kite-flying white hate monger. Look where we've come and how far away we are from our principles.

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

Watch how the conversation went on radio HERE:

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
