Glenn Beck: Who Else Needs a Bailout?

Glenn Beck's Common Sense

Now available in book stores nationwide...

Some common sense solutions to stories where the mainstream media is not doing their job:

Another Bailout?

Conservatives have warned about a Fairness Doctrine, but I don't think it's going to happen. Remember: It's all about misdirection — watch the other hand. They're not going to do the Fairness Doctrine; it'll be 1,000 tiny paper cuts.

Let's start with our favorite topic: another bailout. A group of minority broadcasters asked Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner for a bailout on Monday. Broadcasting is pretty similar to the financial and auto industries, so it's no biggie, right?

Well, dig a little deeper and you'll see the web of connections that no one else wants to show you. Which lawmakers signed the letter? None other than our old pals Barney Frank, Charlie Rangel and House Majority Whip James Clyburn.

Wait a minute. Clyburn, Clyburn... why is that name familiar? Oh yeah, he's the civil rights hero and Democratic Party heavyweight whose support and eventual endorsement of candidate-Obama helped get him into the White House.

On a completely unrelated note, Clyburn's eldest daughter, Mignon, a former weekly newspaper publisher, was nominated to be a member of the FCC. That's the same FCC that regulates broadcasters, including the 7.7 percent of minority-owned radio stations and 3.2 percent of minority-owned TV stations that just asked for a bailout.

Can you say "conflict of interest"? Nope, in community organizer-in-chief Obama's world that's called "transparency."

Oh, by the way, the minority groups may not get a bailout. But mark my words, it will be easier to find funds for "alternative programming" to get radio stations out of the hands of mean white people.

That's Stimulating

Pretend you are the CEO of a company. How many jobs do you think you could create with $413 million? Now how many jobs do you think the government stimulus can create with $413 million? In New Hampshire, the answer is 34 full-time jobs.

No, not 34,000 — just thirty-four. That works out to $12,147,059 of your tax dollars for every job the state has created.

With that kind of fantastic production, it's no wonder that the state will eventually get between $500-750 million in stimulus funds. Taking the higher number, that would get the great state of New Hampshire a whopping 62 jobs created or saved.

Who said states don't know how to stretch a dollar?

Don't Count Out Palin

The only people counting Sarah Palin out are those who believe only in party politics, those who hated her anyway (mainly the cast of "Saturday Night Live") and those who don't understand the paradigm will shift. But don't you count her out.

You'll remember she announced she would stepping down as Alaska's governor later this month. While her critics have said the move amounts to political suicide, there's some encouraging news for her supporters. Her political action committee received $200,000 in donations since her July 3 announcement, in addition to the more than $700,000 in the first half of the year. Of that money, 57 percent came from donors who contributed less than $200.

That sounds like a lot of grassroots support. But is anyone reporting that?

Compare that to the gads of reporting about the great grassroots movement of candidate Obama. According to The Washington Post, only a quarter of the money Obama raised came from small donors — which I may point out was a smaller percentage than George Bush raised in 2004.

Separately, you'll remember that a lot of the Obama donors were big donations cut up and disguised as a bunch of smaller ones. But you know, that is the real grassroots, where you'll find lots of little acorns scattered.

Summer Reading

How much would you pay to read Senator Ted Kennedy's memoir? Think it's worth 1,000 bucks? Well, that's what his publisher wants to charge for one leather-bound limited edition of the book.

Yes, really.

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences


  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.


  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.


  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
