Glenn Beck: Ma'am!! Boxer not offended this time



Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: So let's go to Pat's audio vault. Pat, what are you bringing to the table with the audio today?

PAT: Barbara Boxer, having a little hearing yesterday.

GLENN: Everybody's favorite.

PAT: Some sort of small business or environmental hearing, who knows. They are having a hearing on something every day. And she was in this environmental hearing with Harry Alford who was the head the CEO at the black Chamber of Commerce. And they had an interesting little exchange that Harry took exception with.

GLENN: Okay. Here it is, Barbara Boxer.

BOXER: Also, if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me. I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. He would have been proud that he was quoted, that a white senator was quoting him in congress. He would have been proud. Oh, my gosh, I think that's condescending.

PAT: It is. It is.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: That part, that part is. That's the one part that struck me as you know, otherwise this is liberals eating their young.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Just, they are feeding on each other and I love it when that happens.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It is kind of yummy.

PAT: But that part, where he would be proud, you should be proud. You black guys should be proud that I

GLENN: You cute little black guy.

PAT: You're cute. Look at that. I'm holding this black guy up and saying, "He's smart."

PAT: Yeah. Look.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: That is offensive. There's more.

BOXER: Should be proud

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

PAT: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud, I'm sure.

VOICE: Proud. That's condescending and I don't like it. It's racial. I don't like it.

BOXER: Excuse me, sir.

VOICE: I take offense to it.

BOXER: Okay.

VOICE: As an African American and a veteran of this country, I take offense to that.

BOXER: Offense at the fact that I would quote

VOICE: You are quoting some other black man. Why don't you quote some other Asian or some I mean, you are being racial here.

BOXER: Okay, let me

VOICE: And I think you are getting to a path here that's going to explode.

BOXER: I'm going to respond right now. I'm going to ask everyone to listen to what I said.

GLENN: Okay.

BOXER: First I placed in the record the Pew Charitable Trust study. Very important study our state, our home State of California. Then I wanted to make a point that the fact is there's definitely differing opinions in the black community just as there are in my community.

VOICE: You are speaking on behalf of the black community?

BOXER: No. I am putting in the word a statement by the NAACP.

VOICE: Why?

BOXER: Because I think it is quite relevant. I

VOICE: Then understand the Pew I understand the Pew study but why are you doing the NAA why are you doing the colored people association study with the black Chamber of Commerce?

BOXER: I am trying to show the diversity of support that we have.

VOICE: Diversity?

BOXER: And I will go ahead and give that diversity of support. The oil companies

PAT: Is that great?

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

PAT: It's priceless.

GLENN: Then she goes into the oil companies. What color is oil?

PAT: Black.

GLENN: Yes. I think we all know what you're saying, little miss racist.

STU: That is the treatment that Democrats, people like Barbara Boxer give to anyone on the right when they say anything. She just got it back at herself.

GLENN: And she didn't she doesn't have any idea. She was like, wait, wait, wait, wait, this is friendly; I'm just trying to say... and she really didn't even notice the racism. Where is the diversity of opinion? The black Chamber of Commerce versus the NAACP?

PAT: Both sides of the issue!

GLENN: Both sides of the issue and they are both black. I agree with him, why are you bringing that up? Why are you bringing up the NAACP?

STU: It's just, that's an odd do we know what his actual opinion was on this?

GLENN: Does it matter? It's Friday. We're enjoying cake here for a second.

STU: That's a good point. Just enjoy Barbara Boxer getting yelled at.

GLENN: Yeah. Oh, by the way, speaking of that, did you notice how many times he said "Ma'am"?

STU: I did not. Did he say ma'am?

GLENN: Did you notice that?

PAT: Several times.

GLENN: Do you happen to have those?

GLENN: Okay, hang on. Here we go.

PAT: Here's some of the ma'ams.

VOICE: That's correct, ma'am, it's all in the manual. Yes, ma'am.

GLENN: Four ma'ams. Do you happen to have the audio of last time somebody said ma'am?

VOICE: Well, why has it been delayed?

VOICE: Ma'am, at the LACPR is

BOXER: You know, do a favor. Could you say senator instead of ma'am? I worked so hard to get that title. So I appreciate it, thank you.

PAT: It's just a thing. She worked so hard to get that title. About you when Harry Alford yesterday called her ma'am four times within about 30 seconds, she didn't stop him.

GLENN: She didn't have a problem with that because she doesn't have a problem with being called ma'am. She has a problem being called ma'am by somebody in a military uniform.

PAT: By a general.

GLENN: Yeah. She has a problem. It wasn't about that to me just shows her contempt for the military.

STU: Well, are you sure that she just wasn't distracted by being called a racist as well or by being called condescending or whatever that exchange was about?

GLENN: I don't know what it was. Let's listen to it again.

STU: Yeah, one more time, one more time. Playing the hitch here. It is that good, it is that good.

BOXER: Also, if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me.

BOXER: Well

VOICE: I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

BOXER: Just as he would be proud.

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. What's this guy's name?

PAT: Harry Alford.

GLENN: Let's call no, the other guy who's supposed to be proud if he were here.

PAT: Oh, the guy?

STU: John Grant or something?

GLENN: John Grant, can we get a hold of John Grant? Let's find out if he was proud.

STU: That he was quoted?

GLENN: That he was proud of Barbara Boxer. Does it make him proud? Was he from the NAACP?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I thought that was the 100 Black Men.

GLENN: I think we should listen to it again.

STU: You are right.

GLENN: Let's just listen to it again. Start from the beginning.

BOXER: Also if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me.

BOXER: Well

VOICE: I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

BOXER: Just as he would be proud

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud, I'm sure.

PAT: I'm also glad that she can speak for him.

GLENN: I am, too.

PAT: That is great because she knows.

GLENN: Well, sometimes blacks can't speak for themselves.

STU: If they are not invited, they can't.

PAT: But when they do, they are very proud.

GLENN: Is this the name of a company?

PAT: 100 Black Men.

STU: 100 Black Men of Atlanta.

GLENN: Is that the name of the company or like, I didn't even take time to look up the name, there's 100 Black Men that work together and he is the CEO of them?

STU: That's possible but they would be proud.

GLENN: They would be proud. Is that the name of your company? No, it's I do have 100 Black Men working with me.

PAT: I hope that's true. I hope that's what it is.

STU: It does appear to be 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.

GLENN: What is it?

STU: Let's see if I can

GLENN: What do they do?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: I mean, that's not like okay, for instance, Jiffy Lube, what does it do?

STU: It lubes cars.

GLENN: Lubes cars.

STU: In a jiffy.

GLENN: In a Jiffy Lube, you get it. So if you are going in and you think I need to get my car lubed, you know where you are going in the Yellow Pages. I don't know what 100 Black Men is. It's not something that you normally say, gee, if I only had 100 Black Men.

STU: I have their mission statement here.

GLENN: What is their mission statement here?

STU: The mission of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, incorporated is provide support and improve the quality of African Americans and youth in particular in the Atlanta community. In this statement we affirm that we will serve as role models of our youth that's number one. Number two, we will become that will assist charitable and other worthwhile community causes

GLENN: I like these guys.

STU: Number three, we will give our time, talent and resources back to the Atlanta community. Number four, we will provide the leadership to support issues and causes that promote positive change, change in our community. And number five, we will demand and demonstrate excellence in all of our endeavors.

GLENN: They sound proud.

STU: They do sound like they would be proud.

GLENN: Because if they lived by all of those things, they would have reason to be proud.

STU: Yeah, absolutely.

GLENN: So are there more than 100?

STU: I can

GLENN: Is that just the name?

STU: I can get a history on that. There is a history button.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead. Hit the history because I'd like to know if there are more. I'm hoping that there are more than 100.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Unless they are not living by those standards.

STU: Well, no, there seems to be okay. Here we go. There seems to be about 100 chapters of 100 Black Men.

GLENN: So that's 1,000 black men.

STU: No, it's 10,000 black men.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, 10,000, wow.

STU: In 1986, 18 of his friends and associates so at one point it was 19 black men of Atlanta.

GLENN: And that was 1886?

STU: 1986. They wanted to share the vision of a community empowerment organization that would focus on Atlanta's underprivileged youth. Goldstein who is the guy who started it had been exposed to a similar concept during a business meeting in New York called 100 Black Men of New York, aptly titled the new name, 100 Black Men of Atlanta. So he just

GLENN: That's good.

STU: That's pretty good. Think about it.

GLENN: It works. You wouldn't want 100 Black Men of New York in Atlanta.

STU: That wouldn't make any sense at all.

GLENN: Or 100 Black Men of Atlanta in New York.

STU: Right. Those wouldn't make those would be completely ridiculous.

PAT: You could go with the 100 Black Men of New York, the Atlanta chapter, though.

STU: Right, about you that was really

GLENN: But it would be confusing. Now think you are in the Yellow Pages and you are like, if I just had 100 Black Men.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And then you are like, well, I don't know if I need them to be New Yorkers, you know.

STU: It's kind of like the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim. It's too long.

GLENN: It is, it is.

STU: Let's see. 100 Black Men of Atlanta is now one of 8

GLENN: I really don't care. Can we call what's his name?

STU: But I was going to tell you, 100 Black Men of Atlanta is one of eight 100 Black Men in cities around the nation. So now we're up to 10,000 men.

GLENN: That's great. I don't know what they do. It was things that sounds good on the surface. Do you have to be black to be in the 100 Black Men? Could you be white? Because I think if you had an organization called 100 White Men

PAT: And you did not allow blacks...

GLENN: Of Atlanta, it might be easier just to look it up in the yellow pages under Klans.

STU: Yeah, 100 white, that would not be good. And it would be odd to have

GLENN: 100 Black Men

STU: It seems like it would be

GLENN: 2 1/2 men or 2 1/2 kids or whatever it is.

STU: That is the name of a show, yes, thank you.

GLENN: Why not, 100 Black Men and a white guy. But that does sound more like a stage show. That's kind of like a show of some sort.

STU: You know

GLENN: You know, a comedy troup: Hey, I was just out this weekend. I saw, have you seen 100 Black Men and a White Guy?

STU: Does sound like a Broadway sort of scenario.

GLENN: It does, it does. So could we call the CEO?

STU: John Grant, CEO.

GLENN: I'll do a commercial and you call him real quick.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
