Marxists advise Obama?


The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: Am I the only guy left in America that doesn't idolize Che, that doesn't think Fidel Castro is a great guy?

PAT: No, there's at least two of us.

GLENN: There's two?

PAT: There's at least two.

GLENN: Stu, are you in on this? Are you ‑‑

STU: I'm kind of mixed on him. I think he is a decent guy.

GLENN: Jeez.

PAT: He's kind of okay.

STU: Has some good qualities but also some issues.

GLENN: Also some issues, like Che just shooting people in the head.

STU: That's the negative side.

GLENN: That's the negative side.

STU: But there's a positive side. He has great T‑shirts.

GLENN: You know what?

STU: See?

GLENN: He does. I don't know why it is so hard to believe that the president of the United States may be a Marxist, when we have so many Marxists now coming out of the closet. They are no longer afraid to say it. Here is congresswoman from California, Congresswoman Diane Watson.

WATSON: It was just mentioned to me by our esteemed speaker, did anyone say anything about the Cuban health system. And let me tell you, before you say, oh, it's communist, you need to go down there and see what Fidel Castro put in place. And I want you to know now you can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.

GLENN: That is great. That is great.

WATSON: And, you know, the Cuban revolution that kicked out the wealthy,

Che Guevera did that.

PAT: Thank goodness.

WATSON: And then after they took over they went out among the population to find someone who could lead this new nation, and they found ‑‑ well, just leave it there.

GLENN: Why?

WATSON: An attorney by the name of Fidel Castro.

GLENN: Oh, that is ‑‑

PAT: After they kicked out the wealthy, comrade.

(Obama National Anthem plays).

GLENN: I ask you, why is it so hard for people to believe that there is a revolution going on in this country, that there is a Marxist revolution. You have Van Jones ‑‑ and by the way, I don't know if you've seen all the hacks that have gone after the facts on Van Jones. This guy is being canonized.

PAT: He's like a Bill Gates now. He's a ‑‑

GLENN: He's such a capitalist.

PAT: Oh, he's Mr. Capitalist.

GLENN: He is Rockefeller before the Rockefellers went communist. I mean, he is, he is amazing. He has been scrubbed clean. What was it that Joe Biden said about Barack Obama? He's clean and articulate. Joe Biden can even like Van Jones at this point, he's been scrubbed so clean. He is now being called on the Internet a great capitalist. We're going to correct the record here coming up in just a little while.

But you don't have to go to Van Jones to find Marxists. You now have Diane Watson. This is what she just said. Let's play it again and listen to the words of what she just said again. Who was she speaking to, Pat? Do you know?

PAT: I don't.

GLENN: It was a ‑‑ I mean, the audience is like oh, it's Fidel...

GRAY: Great.

GLENN: I don't know if I should even clap at that one.

WATSON: It was just mentioned to me by our esteemed speaker, did anyone say anything about the Cuban health system. And let me tell you, before you say, oh, it's commune ‑‑ you need to go down there and see what Fidel Castro put in place.

GLENN: Amen, sister.

WATSON: And I want you to know now you can think whatever you want to about the bill ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Okay, let's think whatever we want to about Fidel Castro. He has kept his people in poverty for almost as long as Robert Byrd has been in the capital of the U.S. He has starved many of his people. He has imprisoned many of his people. He has executed many of his people. His people love it there so much that they take automobiles and try to escape and come to the United States. I mean, what else do I have to say about ‑‑

PAT: Which, by the way, there's no road between us and Cuba.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: They kind of float.

GLENN: It's weird, isn't it?

PAT: Float here in old Buicks.

GLENN: It's amazing to me that we have somebody who is in congress, currently in congress ‑‑ Stu, could you look up where Diane Watson is from? Guarantee you she's from the Bay Area, coincidence of coincidence.

PAT: 33rd district, yeah.

GLENN: Is that where it is?

PAT: I think, I think it's the Bay Area.

GLENN: Guarantee it. It's where Van Jones is from. It's San Francisco, it's Oakland. It's where all of these radicals are coming from. UC‑Berkeley. And nobody is ‑‑ we have got to stop looking at these people as people with a difference of opinion. They are revolutionaries. That's what Che was! Culver City, California? I don't ‑‑ yeah, that's down Los Angeles area, I think. Our apologies to anybody who's listening to us in New York and like, these dummies. Where did I say? Oh, yeah. No, New York is like, these dummies. But California's ‑‑ now, she's not the only one. Van Jones isn't the only one. Mark Lloyd isn 't the only one. Mark Lloyd is the FCC ‑‑ we've got an expose tonight on the FCC and this Internet ban that just seemingly just went away. Apparently people don't have a problem with Marxism. I think it's because they don't know it yet. But they ‑‑ on Friday Drudge released a report that Rockefeller, Jay Rockefeller is now introducing a presidential ability to take control of the Internet and shut it down. Well, I don't know if I want that from ‑‑ especially when you've got the FCC diversity czar talking about how great Che ‑‑ I'm sorry, how great Chavez is. And that important revolution. And that Chavez wouldn't have been thwarted the first time on his revolution if he would have had control of the radio stations and the television stations. If he would have taken the media seriously.

A restaurant owner in Southwest Harbor, Maine, has taken to sedating her lobsters with marijuana to help ease the pain of being being boiled alive — a popular way of cooking the crustaceans.

The owner of Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound, Charlotte Gill, said she feels bad for the lobsters she serves in her restaurant, noting, "there is no exit strategy" for them.

"She wants to get the lobsters baked before they're boiled," Glenn said on Thursday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."

He wondered if marijuana actually made the lobsters more paranoid, recalling an "all-time classic" comic involving a paranoid lobster and a swipe at Glenn himself, a self-described "optimistic catastrophist."

Of course Spooky Dude is connected to Kavanaugh hit job

You know it's kind of crazy how blatantly transparent Democrats have been during the Kavanaugh hearings. I'm definitely not saying this in any kind of positive light. I'm just amazed at how the left is giving the entire country a direct insiders look on how they go about their business. I mean, this entire confirmation charade has got everything… from "mic checking" to shout down your opponents, to political grandstanding to gain favor for future elections, to shady plots involving big money donors advancing progressive agendas. This is truly a look inside the Left's political playbook. It's open for everyone to see, and they don't even really appear to give a crap to try and hide it.

RELATED: Well that escalated quickly

Take for instance the Ford sexual assault allegation. Grassley has given Ford until tomorrow to commit to a testimony that would be conducted in the next 72 hours. He wants it complete by Monday so they can move on with a committee vote. But Ford and her lawyer are delaying. They want the FBI to do an investigation, but procedurally that's not how this works. Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, knows this. So why delay?

Well, it's pretty obvious. Again, the Left isn't trying to hide what they're doing here. Democrats want this delayed as close to the November midterms as possible. They study history just like anyone else does. When this nearly identical scenario happened with Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill back in 1991, it triggered what is now known as "The Year of the Woman" in the 1992 elections. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, was a product of that Democrat surge.

But the Ford accusation reveals a lot more. Back in August, a large group of Left-leaning groups co-signed a letter to both Senator Feinstein and Senator Grassley demanding Kavanaugh records. It was basically the same narrative that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris were using during the opening day of the confirmation hearing. One of the groups that co-signed the letter was called the Project on Government Oversight, or POGO. The vice chair of POGO is a woman named Debra Katz - YES - the same Debra Katz that is now the lawyer for Kavanaugh's accuser. Don't worry, this gets even more ridiculous. POGO is directly funded by - guess who - George Soros and the Open Society Foundation.

We're seeing a play-by-play political hit job live as it all plays out.

Soros' fingerprints are all over this. In June the Daily Caller reported that a group called Demand Justice had launched an effort to try and stop Kavanaugh's confirmation. They allocated five million to the project. Wanna take a guess where they get their money? Demand Justice gets their funding from something called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, and their funds come directly from George Soros and the Open Society Policy Center. They've given over two million in recent years.

We're seeing a play-by-play political hit job live as it all plays out. If you thought Netflix's House of Cards was fiction… I give you the Kavanaugh hearings.

Jeremy Boreing, COO at the Daily Wire and executive producer of "The Ben Shapiro Show," joined Glenn Beck on Tuesday to weigh in on the ongoing debate about whether the government should regulate digital media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google.

In reference to leaked documents that revealed a "secret meeting that happened with Media Matters and their strategic plan," Glenn asked Boreing for his thoughts on "raw data" sharing (by social media platforms) and the suppression of conservative voices in digital media.

Boreing noted that Cambridge Analytica is under fire for using techniques, supplied to them by Facebook, to collect the same data sets that Media Matters has apparently collected.

"This is a pretty classic example of the left not being happy when the right does the same things that they are doing," he said.

"How do [conservative outlets] survive if you have Media Matters guiding Facebook and Twitter and Google on who to suppress and who not to?" Glenn asked.

"Unfortunately, I think that there's going to be a certain amount of lawfare that has to become a part of the tool belt of the right," Boreing said. "But specifically with these social media platforms, because of the Communications Decency Act in section 230, they sought protection from the government with being held liable in certain instances because they said 'we're not publishers, we're platforms.'"

"Now, they're trying to have it the other way. They're trying to say, 'No, we can act as publishers. We can determine what kind of opinions we want stated on our networks,'" he added.

Dennis Prager, syndicated radio host and founder of PragerU, joined Glenn on Tuesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to weigh in on the volatile political climate in America today.

"I think that the crisis in America is the greatest in my lifetime and the greatest since the actual Civil War," Prager said.

"I never engage in hyperbole," he explained. "I may, like anyone, be wrong. But I took a vow 35 years ago when I started radio, that … I [would] try to tell the truth. And I've never been accused of a lie, I'm proud to tell you. I've been called every word, but not liar. And I took another vow, don't even exaggerate, because it works for about a year. But gradually people understand, 'He doesn't really mean that. He's just overstating the case. So, I am not overstating when I say we are in a civil war in the United States."

He noted the tremendous "gap between the left and the rest of the country" and gave an example of the now "normative" practice of not calling children "boys or girls" in schools because it's considered wrong to impose a gender identity.

"That is sick to the point of child abuse," he said. "We are watching crazy people take our country."
