Glenn Beck: Olbermann endorses 9/12 project


MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I am waiting for a decision to be made on where I am going to be on 9/12. I got it down to two things and the idea is what is going to be the you know, we all play a role. So what is the best thing that I can do on 9/12. If you haven't made your plans yet, please make your plans. I'll tell you hopefully maybe by the end of the show today. Otherwise tomorrow. I'm just waiting for some logistics to come through on something and then I'll tell you what I'm doing on 9/12 and I hope that you will join me or other 9/12ers or tea partygoers or where there are a lot of things going on and we'll tell you about them coming up in the next few days as we get closer to 9/12. But I will tell you that again I didn't expect it from Keith Olbermann but if we have can we just play just a little bit of what he said about the 9/12 group?

OLBERMANN: At its core beneficial, calling, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12th, 2001? Not the dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Wow. I mean, he does get it.

GRAY: He gets it. I didn't think he would, but he does.

GLENN: He does.

PAT: Seems to.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: That sounded pretty sincere.

Learn More about the 9/12 Project

GLENN: And I don't think he said that before when we started it. Remember everybody was trying to make me into a fear monger, that we wanted the fear of, you know, 9/11.

STU: It's so often that we see things in political terms. And when something like that happens, it's very possible that he may have had an initial reaction to it which was negative. But when he actually has seen it in progress and seen it going on.

GLENN: Shows the idea behind it.

STU: Turned around. I think that's cool, though. You've got to

GLENN: It shows that he was thinking and it shows that he was he's open to new ideas and to new, you know, different because he doesn't obviously agree with me on anything but, well, except for the 9/12 project.

PAT: But he's had a chance to watch your show and realize how sincere you are about things and maybe he gets into the spirit a little bit more.

OLBERMANN: But at its core, beneficial, calming, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12, 2001. Not of dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

GLENN: Isn't that I mean, he should have delivered the monologue when I introduced it.

STU: Is it possible that maybe he would come to the event and maybe co host it with you? It would show sort of a

GLENN: You know what? Maybe we should invite him to co host, you know, any event that we might be doing because that would be that would be quite amazing because he can, obviously he can put his, you know, petty partisan "I work for GE who has practically set up a desk next to Barack Obama's desk in the Oval Office."

STU: Well, it's not really practical. Practically the head of the company's in, you know, he's one of the advisors to the president. So I mean, you are right. I guess not practically. The desk location might be different, you are right.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. I mean, he is you know, and he's working for GE which is just such a great, great...

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: And for him to be able to detach from the evil of his gigantic global corporation that is currently being called Enron for its accounting scandal that, you know, come right out of your taxpayer dollars. But it was only $50 billion, you know, and then also spending all of that money on anti mob things because they have billions of dollars to gain in GE healthcare, you know, so they can say, you know, things like, hey, don't worry. At GE we're building a better tomorrow. And for him to be able to detach from that constant pounding of what that giant corporation wants him to say and do to help the president of the United States.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Is

PAT: It's moving really. Again it's moving.

GLENN: It is moving.

PAT: I've been moved. And for because as a rule I think that sheer evil sheerly corrupts those who are around and within it.

GLENN: But here's a sign that, here's a sign that I mean, he's been moved deeply.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: He's deeply been touched.

STU: Personally I think.

GLENN: Anyway.

STU: You could just tell by because I saw the video of this statement.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you could tell by the way he stops, pauses and turns to the camera that he

PAT: When he does that, you know he's being real.

STU: Yeah, that's just natural. That's what people do. That's how they speak. They just suddenly pause and at the exact time it switches and he knows exactly which that's how you do that. Like when I proposed to my wife, I got down on one knee and then I stopped and I looked down and then I turned to the right and I looked right up at her just like that because when you do that, you're giving a sense of sincerity.

GLENN: Well, it's almost Shakespearian the way he

STU: Yeah, I think that is a good reference, Shakespearian.

GLENN: Well, for that relief, much thanks.

STU: Right, yeah. Like that's a you know, can you imagine how great it would be to be able to actually just take a woman that has been writing in as a fan of the show and then go to some hotel and have sex with her and then say for this relief, much thanks, and then have an assistant write and say, I don't ever want to talk to you again; don't ever call or write?

STU: Yeah, I'm not getting the reference here but you are right about people crossing political divides.

GLENN: It's right out of the top of my head but thank you, Keith Olbermann, for the endorsement of the 9/12 project. It was big of you, and much thanks.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
