Glenn Beck: Pelosi caught in a pickle

Republicans Claim Top Lawmakers Were in the Loop on Interrogations

GLENN: This is Nancy Pelosi on what did she know and when did she know?

VOICE: At the time you were briefed, did you raise objections?

PELOSI: It's not appropriate for me to talk about what happens at briefings. It's very interesting that people are talking so briefly. But I can say this: At that or any other briefing, and that was the only briefing that I was briefed on in that regard, we were not, I repeat, not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used. What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel, the office of legislative counsel opinions that they could be used.

GLENN: Okay. George Tenet's book, Page 242 of his book: After we received written Department of Justice guidance on interrogation issue, we briefed the chairmen and the ranking members of our oversight committees. While they were not asked to formally approve the program as it was conducted under the president's unilateral authorities, I can recall no objections being raised. Page 242, George Tenet's book.

The minutes of this meeting exist. They kept a record. We know Nancy Pelosi was in these meetings. I think it's time for the American people to demand those meetings' minutes be released. We already know all the other stuff. You notice she said, "I think it's very interesting that people are talking about secret meetings." Really? Now you do? Now you do, now you stand up against them. Why, on the same day, you say this the same day that more pictures have been released of what happened in Abu Ghraib, the same day. You say now it's interesting about this. You know what? You answer to us, Nancy Pelosi. You answer to the American people. And I want to know, are the Democrats playing this game and scamming us and telling us that they were briefed on waterboarding? Or are you scamming us? There's a very simple way to find out who's telling the truth. You can take all the secret stuff out. I just want the names of the people who are in the meeting. We already know those names. I just want them verified that they were there on that day. I want their schedules to be outed. I want to see Nancy Pelosi, "Where were you on that day according to your schedule." I want witnesses called. I don't want them called in congress. I want them called in a people's court. We might even get Doug Llewellyn to do it. So let's release the minutes of that meeting. You can redact everything else. Just say, George Tenet, this is what he said on waterboarding, objection from anyone. She says   in this statement she's saying, "Well, they told us but they didn't tell us that they were going to do it." That is akin to saying, "You know what, I'm going to go over to your grandma's house tonight and I'm going to stay the night and have dinner. I mean, I may end up killing her, but I'm going to have dinner and we're going to watch a movie and then I'm just going to spend the night. I'll call you tomorrow.

That's like   what Nancy Pelosi just said is like now saying, "Well, he didn't tell me he was going to kill her. I mean, he didn't tell me, "Okay, he said that killing may be part of it, but he didn't notify me that he was actually going to kill her!" Excuse me? Who in their right mind would listen to that excuse? "Excuse me. Wait a minute. What did you just say about killing my grandma? What? Hang on, what?" If you had a problem with torture, if you thought waterboarding was torture, you should have said it then and there. If somebody says I'm going to do something outrageous, you don't say, "Oh, well, well call me  " if somebody said, you know what I'm going to do, I'm going to take electrical wires and I'm going to strap them to their private parts, put their feet in water and juice them for a little while. "Excuse me, wait a minute. What was that last one? No, I don't think we do that." Nobody objected in the meeting and if they did, I want to see them. I want to see it. I no longer trust these weasels in Washington. I no longer trust the right; I no longer trust the left. I want to see it, but I   you watch. You watch. This will be buried so damn deeply, I'll be surprised if they say these records even exist anymore. They've been misplaced; I don't know what happened to them; they're gone. I want a GPS wrist bracelet or ankle bracelet on Sandy Berger starting today! I want to know where that bastard is all the time! Don't let   if anybody spots Sandy Berger near any kind of archives, call. Let us know.

STU: You mean call if he specifically says he's going to take the records, right?

GLENN: No, no.

STU: Because you wouldn't call unless he specifically says he's going to   

GLENN: No. If he's anywhere near paper, call. If you see him by a computer and there's a delete button on it, call.

STU: Because I mean, isn't Nancy Pelosi, at the very least, if she were to have said, "Look, I have a major problem with this and, you know, it's obviously your authority but if you do it, I'm going to come after you with all the..."

GLENN: That's all she had to say. That's all she had to say. And if she said that, if she said, "Wait a minute, are we   "if she would have said, "Wait a minute, if waterboarding legal?" "Yes, it is." "Okay, I'm not sure. I want to check into that." Just even that. But if she was talked to about being waterboarding   see, the right says, the Republicans say they not only didn't say anything, there were words of encouragement. There were words, "Is this far enough." I want to see those words. Are the Republicans lying? It's our country. They have betrayed our trust so long for political purposes. They are destroying us with the games they are playing. It is time for us, the adults, to stand up and say, "Sit down, both of you. Bring me the records. Show them to me. And whichever one of you two, and if it's both of you, you are both going to be punished. Both of you." It's just time. It is time to say enough is enough. And whoever's lying, punish them. Whoever is exonerated, great. Congratulations. If that's Nancy Pelosi, great. But we must be able to trust our government. We must be able to know they are telling us the truth.

They are doing the same thing with the banks. Bernanke and Paulson surprisingly have not been put under oath. You know, what's his name, putz face here in New York, who's the DA here in New York   not the DA but   yeah, is it the district attorney? Come on, it's what's his name from Fannie, Cuomo. Here's Cuomo. He's searching for more bonus records. Instead he finds that the Bank of America was threatened by Bernanke and Paulson. Does he put Paulson and Bernanke under oath? Does he pursue that? No, because they are not looking for government corruption. They are looking for anything that empowers them. It's got to stop. It's got to stop.

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."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
