Glenn Beck: Common Sense - never use email


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Now available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: And now another scenario in which common sense was clearly not applied.

GLENN: Okay, we had both Mark Chertoff and John Ashcroft on the air over the years and both of them said the same thing: We never use e-mail. Nobody -- if you knew that e-mail never went away, you would never use it. That was their quote. Common sense, especially if you are a politician, for a number of reasons. But if you're a politician who is cheating on their wife in Argentina, it's really a little more than just common sense, isn't it in here's some of the e-mails. Do we have any romantic Barry White music? He writes, "Beloved, back to you. Got back an hour ago to civilization and I'm now in Columbia after what was for me a glorious break from reality down at the farm. No phones ringing and tangible evidence of days labors. They have started every day by 6:00 this morning."

What are you playing? I don't know if this is really romantic music. This is by a group named Hot Chocolate. It's called You Sexy Thing. Stop. You're ruining the mood here. This is not good.

"Though I started every day at 6:00, this morning I woke at 4:30. I guess since my body knew it was the last day, I went out and ran the excavator with the lights until the sun came up. To me, and I suspect no one else on Earth, there's something wonderful about listening to country music playing in the cab, air conditioning running, and the hum of a huge diesel engine in the background." This guy already, this guy's making Al Gore cry.

The tranquillity that comes from being in a virtual wilderness of trees and marsh, the day breaking in vibrant pink coming alive in the morning clouds and getting to build something with each scoop of dirt.

Okay, I think this is the courtship period. This is before he's had a slice of that pie. You know what I'm saying? He's trying to look poetic and he's like, I don't know, I drove a tractor all day, what can I write about?

STU: There's nothing more poetic than heavy farming and excavation in detail.

GLENN: Mmm-hmmm. So then it gets down. Now we're getting down to some business here. It says, "Sweetest, one, the travel schedule is about to get real, real busy. Two, unfortunately all the feelings you describe are mutual. And three, where do we go from here? The following weekend I've been asked to spend out in Aspen, Colorado with John McCain which has kicked up the whole VP talk all over again in the press back home. Do you really comprehend how beautiful your smile is? Have you been told lately how warm your eyes are or how softly they glow with the special nature of your soul?"

STU: This is right from VP talk into how special her glow is?

GLENN: No, it's -- my getting here came as no small measure because I had a foundation of love and support so critical to getting up in the morning and feeling you could give and risk because you already had a full tank of love and the emotional bank account.

Since our first meeting there in a wind swept somewhat open air dance spot in Punta del Este, -- 

STU: Did he say emotional bank account?

GLENN: Yes, he did. And a windswept, somewhat open air dance spot as well.

STU: Men are so stupid. They are the dumbest creatures ever.

GLENN: I felt you had the same rare attribute. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificently gentle kisses or that I love your tan lines or the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of holding yourself or two magnificent parts of yourself in the faded glow of the night's light. But hey -- 

STU: Wait, wait. Say that one again. Wait, what was she holding?

GLENN: She was just holding two magnificent parts of herself that faded in the glow of the night's light. But he continues, but hey, that would be going into the sexual details we spoke of at the steakhouse at dinner. I mean -- 

STU: Over the wedge salad.

GLENN: Would you like some pepper? As I have said to you before, I certainly had a special feeling about you from the first time we met, but these things were contained, and I genuinely enjoyed our special friendship and comparing of all the too many personal notes and, yes, this is true even if you did occasionally tantalize me with sexual details over the years -- I added the tiger sound there myself. PS: I don't want to put the genius -- I think he meant Genie here because he said, I don't want to put the genius back in the bottle.

STU: That's smooth, governor, smooth.

GLENN: You know what it is? Hey, he's drunk on the wine of love. Because I truly believe -- I don't want to put the genius back in the bottle because I truly believe in freedom. Yeah, he's gotten -- he's been sucking something else out of the bottle. I never gave you sexual details but now you don't need to imagine. You can close your eyes and just remember, and I'll do the same.

STU: Just in case you weren't sure I was having an affair, let me spell it out in an e-mail.

GLENN: For anybody who might be reading this in the press, here's her address. Here's a picture of the two of us doing it on the beach. I mean, who goes to Argentina? Who goes? I mean, maybe it's just me, but I don't even know. Argentina may be the friendliest country in the world to us but doesn't it just sound like it's an enemy? I mean, doesn't it sound like it's one of those countries that you're like, "I don't know." Isn't that where the Germans went to after the Nazi thing where they're like, "Quick, let's go to Argentina!"

VOICE: Next time try applying some common sense directly to the forehead and if that fails to solve the problem, read Glenn Beck's new book, Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government. Get the details at GlennBeck.com.

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
