Glenn Beck: Never Forget

GLENN: It is September 11th, 2009. A National Day of Remembrance. A day that we need to ask ourselves, who are we, where have we been, what have we done, and where are we going. Two days ago I went to the top floor of the Fox building and I went up on the roof. All the radio studios are in a different building, and I look right at the Empire State building. But my view of where the World Trade Centers used to be is blocked by a new building. Two days ago I went to the roof of the Fox building to cut a greeting for the 9/12 project that will play on the Jumbotrons there in Washington D.C. tomorrow. I stood there on that roof. I didn't prepare anything to say. I just knew that was the visual, that is where I wanted to be because you could see the Statue of Liberty and you could see where the empty stays is, where the world center used to be. And still there is nothing. And just next to that space is the glorious Empire State building. It's beginning to have to be dark when I get in in the morning. I'm usually here 6:45 to 7:00 every morning, and I sit in my office and the sun kisses in one window the evil gargoyles of the Chrysler building, shimmying in the sunlight, stainless steel. And as the sun starts to peek through the buildings past the Chrysler building, it then touches the face of just the stainless steel bands of the Empire State building and it goes all the way from the base of it all the way to the top. And so every morning at a certain time of the year and it's beginning to get closer and closer again the Empire State building, which is framed in one of my floor to ceiling windows in my office is just a glow. And many mornings in the last year since I moved into these offices I have sat there and I have wondered... where are we headed. That building sets on the space that used to be the Waldorf, at the time one of the most famous hotels in the entire world, the Waldorf. But they knocked it down, cleared the space. In just over 400 days Americans knocked down the Waldorf hotel and rebuilt the icon of America, in just over 400 days with less technology, with men who threw hot steel and hot rivets at each other.

We changed the space of a small island that we bought for beads forever. And yet the space of the World Trade Center sets empty. Why? Are we less of people than our grandparents were? Do we have less ability? Do we have less drive? Do we have less imagination? Do you know what they used to call the Empire State building? For years it was known as this. They used to call it the Empty State building. I don't think I'm mistaken. I have to look this up, but I don't believe the Empire State building has ever had 100% occupancy. For years during the Great Depression it was a symbol of hope. Many tried to tear it down and say it is the real message of America: It's empty. But the owners of the Empire State building, then mocked by the media as the Empty State building turned on the lights so it looked like there were people inside. They built it anyway. They built it as an icon. They built it for the future. They built it for the wonderment of man in America. We keep hearing that nobody wants to buy into the new World Trade Center, the Freedom Tower. In fact, it's no longer called the Freedom Tower. It's going to be World Trade. In fact, let me add the other offensive word: One World Trade. One World Trade. That's fantastic. Why have the Freedom Tower when we can have one World Trade? That's fantastic. Why did we change it? Well, because of occupancy. We needed to get some occupancy. A Freedom Tower might be a little offensive. It might make it a little more of a target. The freedom center and Chinese investors also were a little ruffled at the idea of freedom. I contend that today we need to remember, not just 9/11 but remember who we are. Are we mice or are we men? Are we Europeans or are we Americans? Are we one worlders, or are we free men? Are we the people that will sit around and look and see this scar on this island and accept it because of political correctness, because of special interests, because of labor unions, because of big corporations, because of big government? Is that who we are? Who, who's stopping us? I contend, I contend that the day that rubble was cleared that the only thing was stopping us were special interests, political correctness and politicians. Because if it was up to me, I believe it was up to you, we would have built it, we would have built it at twice the speed, we would have built it 25 stories taller and we would have built it with our own damn hands if we had to. Send a message to the world. We are America! Anything you destroy will only make us stronger. We will only make it better. We will only make it bigger. Not to gloat. But because we can. Where is our American spirit? Where is our ingenuity? It's still alive. Listen. You can hear it. It's no longer calling for help. It's digging itself out from beneath the rubble and the wreckage. It has laid dormant for a while. It laid confused and dazed, but it's about to come out of the smoke, dust itself off, and declare itself free again.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
