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.

Whitney Webb EXPOSES the REAL power behind Jeffrey Epstein's sexual blackmail network

Journalist Whitney Webb has a gift for locating power and hunting it in its darkest corners. In her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” she exposes the dark truth about Epstein’s extensive criminal operations and the connections to entire networks of power and influence — a web of elites that infiltrates the highest ranks of every sector, including law enforcement, art, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, big business, real estate, philanthropy, media, academia, banking and more.

Webb joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to expose just how deep Epstein's vast network of corruption and power really went. Was Epstein a government informant? How big is the scandal's body count? And of course, did Epstein actually kill himself?

Webb's research into transhumanism has also given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. People around the world have had enough of these global elites trying to control their lives, and they're starting to elect leaders who are pushing back. But can these new leaders survive the system that people like Klaus Schwab have put in place?

Webb told Glenn that she believes we're actually facing something much bigger than Klaus Schwab.

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to explain why, with over 100,000 votes left to count, she's "100% confident" that she will win against Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently still holds a narrow lead.

Kari also gave her thoughts on why the ballot counting has been so slow, why that's "embarrassing" for Arizona, and whether Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters will also win his election.

We've learned some very valuable lessons from this year's midterm elections so far, but perhaps the most important takeaway should be that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis should be the model for the entire GOP.

"Any Republican that's not willing to look at Ron DeSantis, and see what he did and how he did it, and begin to model themselves after that is a fool. An absolute fool," said Glenn Beck stated on the radio program. "He is not angry. He is not divisive, at least [not] intentionally divisive. That's not his goal. His goal is to be decisive, and decisive people are perceived sometimes as divisive because a lot of people don't want to make changes. It is time to make changes," he stated.

"Second thing, our nation is spiritually lost. Completely lost," Glenn continued. "There is only one savior, and he's not on a ballot. Until we drop the manifest destiny [and] arrogance of 'God's on my side,' we will continue to suffer defeat, hardships, and darkness. And I mean as a nation, we are all going to pay for this. We must be on God's side, and that requires humility."

Glenn went on to say the third big takeaway is that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "was and is wrong."

"Lukewarm Republicans are not going to defeat the Democrats," Glenn asserted. "Just not being a Democrat is not enough. And Mitch McConnell should feel the ramifications of this loss. Mitt Romney said just last week, he tweeted that a red wave was coming, and it was all thanks to Mitch McConnell. Well, it turns out he was right. What was coming is all thanks to Mitch McConnell."

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck unpacks the wins, losses, and lessons from the midterms and asks, “Why can’t everyone be like Florida?”

Results are still coming in, but if Republicans take the House, what will they do with a majority? BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere argues the GOP must stop the bleeding and block the worst instincts of the Biden administration. We can’t relax for the next two years and put our hope in a Republican presidential candidate.

Matthew Peterson of the New Founding PAC says, win or lose, “No one is coming to save you”— there are REAL changes you can actually make at the local level. Now is the time to start building careers, communities, and infrastructures that align with your values to better fend off attacks from the Left. “Why be around people who don’t like you?” Make red states redder.

David Barton of WallBuilders brings some much-needed perspective and says the mainstream media was too focused on national issues; there were MAJOR untold wins at the local level. At the end of the day, bold leadership was rewarded.

Finally, Glenn shocks the audience by agreeing with Mitt Romney and apologizes for the creative direction of the graphics featuring Democratic candidates in BlazeTV’s election coverage. Just kidding. They had it coming.
