Glenn Beck: Why Obama's Speech Doesn't Matter



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

Everyone is talking about health care today and the president's speech tonight.

I don't even need to watch the speech.

Why? Because here's The One Thing: While everyone else is talking about the health care bill and the games of health care reform, let me sum up the speech this way: It doesn't matter.

Wednesday's health care speech doesn't matter because this administration is going off a blueprint they haven't revealed yet. And while we don't know what their grand plan is, it feels more and more like a plan designed by the Teamsters, the seemingly criminal elements that run ACORN or Hugo Chavez's regime.

And until we know where the people in Washington stand on the Constitution, nothing should pass.

The tools to build their ultimate new America will be buried in these bills — tools that you won't even see because you don't know what tools they need. So instead of talking about health care, let me tell you something that will absolutely change your life.

I have said to you over and over again: Never watch what they are doing; watch the other hand.

As everyone was watching Van Jones, we learned the vote to confirm Cass Sunstein as regulatory "czar" is coming down on Wednesday. Sunstein is the author of "Animal Rights: Current Debates and New Directions," in which he wrote: "Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives…."

Yes, your dog should have an attorney.

Sunstein also had this to say about the Second Amendment:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CASS SUNSTEIN: "My coming view is that the individual right to bear arms reflects the success of an extremely aggressive and resourceful social movement and has much less to do with good standard legal arguments than [it] appears."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Here is what the regulatory "czar" does: He regulates laws — past, present and future. He tweaks them.

What could that mean to you? Well, consider that Sunstein is a man who doesn't believe we should be eating meat; a man who believes that animals should be provided attorney's in courts of law; a man that believes that everyone must be an organ donor; a man who believes that maybe you shouldn't be able to remove rats from your home, if it causes them any pain.

(I mean, I was as fond of Michael Jackson's song "Ben" as the next 8-year-old kid, but do you really want a police officer telling Ben, who's shown up in your home, "You have the right to be here. If they try to remove you from the home, you have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, Ben, one will be provided for you"?)

Cass Sunstein doesn't have to pass a law to ban meat, he just works with the environmental agencies to make sure feed is tougher to obtain, grazing lands are more protected and it's much more difficult to ship. So ranchers can't graze their cattle.

When environmentalists saved the smelt, all they did was reduce water going to those grazing lands and suddenly, farmers were going out of business.

Sunstein can make it harder to use pesticides, change regulations on grains — which makes them more expensive and your steak goes from $10 to $25.

So don't expect laws banning meat, just tweaks to the regulations that make it more expensive — "nudging" you to stop eating meat.

How will Sunstein "nudge" you on guns or on the Internet or free speech? You won't say bad things about the president or global warming because that would be wildly irresponsible — we can't have flat-Earthers running around or people who disagree too much with the president.

People in Washington don't get it, you know it.

For the first time in my life, I have seen miracles happen. This country is actually being led, in part, by you. We the people are leading the blind in Washington. But some will continue to play politics and call you stupid.

They will tell you that Cass Sunstein is a good guy, just an academic. But there are a lot of academics that have done a lot of damage and are responsible for a lot of people perishing.

A lot of these attacks on me claim that I'm just screaming "communist!" That's not what I'm alleging in the case of Sunstein. He's not a communist or a Marxist. He's not crazy — well, besides the rat thing. He's not a revolutionary — he hasn't started a STORM for kids group. He's a serious intellectual.

So why is Glenn Beck going after him?

Because I'm one person who has been consistent. I'm against gigantic government. I believe that people make the best decisions. I don't need to be "nudged." I don't need the National Endowment for the Arts to make propaganda to push an agenda. I don't need thugs coming to my office or approaching me on the street to nudge me.

I can make the decisions for my own life. And if the government doesn't like it, they can get the heck off my land.

A battle is being waged. You may be losing a lot of personal sovereignty today. Watch the price of energy. Watch the price of the food. You will not be "nudged;" you will be shoved. But the highest price you'll pay isn't the extra pennies on a soda tax. It will be in the loss of your personal freedom.

This Saturday is 9/12 — the day I think should be a National Day of Service.

There are going to be 9/12 events across the country. Go to D.C. Go to your town squares. Get your neighbors to go to your home, local bar, restaurant.

Take a stand. Enough is enough.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
