Glenn Beck: Time to Re-found America




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

All I can say is "wow."

The 9/12 rally happened this weekend and if there was any question on where America stands right now, I think images from Washington, D.C., on Saturday should help answer them.

Estimates on the crowd size range from London's Daily Mail report of over 1 million, all the way to the obligatory "tens of thousands" lowball. Whatever the actual number, it doesn't matter — the turnout was absolutely astonishing.

According to The Daily Mail, the White House was shocked by the size of the crowd. What I found shocking was the arrogance and the choice of words that White House senior adviser David Axelrod chose to describe the rally:

DAVID AXELROD, SENIOR WHITE HOUSE ADVISER: First of all, Bob, I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood.

And so, you know, I don't think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they're wrong.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Oh, David. If only you were on the right side of this argument.

They are still choosing to play the same kind of politics that America is currently rejecting and the media still doesn't get it — that or they're complicit in whatever shell game the government is playing, because they largely chose to ignore it or cover it with headlines like these: "Tea Party Movement Has Anger, No Dominant Leaders."

No leader? Good — that's what is called "grassroots."

I've told you before, the paradigm is about to shift. I just laughed at the lack of coverage in the news because the newspapers (who are shedding subscribers) and the media don't even realize they are driving the nail into their own coffin. How do you, by in large, miss this gigantic rally which, by some reports, at least approached the crowd at the Obama Inauguration?

How is that possible? They aren't giving you the truth. The good news is you get that. Only 29 percent of Americans say that news organizations get their facts straight — 29 percent.

The lies aren't working anymore.

Look at what has happened as the mainstream media on the sidelines — look at what you've done:

• Van Jones, after the cruel "smear campaign" that included playing video of him speaking, resigned

• The "cash for clunkers" government computer glitch story was uncovered by a watchdog and the government shut it down

• The art propaganda at the NEA exposed on this program by another regular citizen doing the media's job

• On Friday, nobody (besides FOX News and some blogs) were reporting on the ACORN tapes and the census completely cut ties with ACORN (although, that one is a little too good to be true — so I'm keeping an eye on it)

• This weekend in D.C. one of the biggest (and most peaceful) crowds there ever

But all of that is only the beginning. Questions still need to be answered. Remember, I'm not trying to get people fired, I'm just asking questions. Just because I talk about someone doesn't mean they need to be fired, I'm just looking the real agenda. I'm doing what the president told me to do: Find out where he stands by looking at those he surrounds himself with.

Firing the corrupt ACORN workers or forcing Van Jones to resign doesn't answer the question: "How and why did he get there in the first place?"

Some more good news — even CNN, in an interview with an Air America host — are finally asking the same question I've been asking:

(BEGIN 'RELIABLE SOURCES' VIDEO CLIP)

ANA MARIE COX, NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT, AIR AMERICA RADIO: Yes, I think this is another sign — I am very curious about how the White House sort of spot through some of the lower-level appointees, I mean, not so lower level. I think that during the campaign they showed a masterful understanding of the way that the media works and the way that people respond to certain kinds of allegations. It seems like they really had no idea this was going to be a problem and that disturbs me more than anything.

Sooner or later people on both sides of the aisle will realize that this isn't about left vs. right or conservative vs. liberal. We're being played by Republicans and Democrats. The weasels in Washington are pitting us against each other because it's convenient for them. They don't care about you. They are playing the same old Washington games and to play the game you have to play ball.

Put the ball down and head for the clubhouse — this game is rigged.

If they really wanted just health care reform, why is there a provision to subsidize union health care pension plans to the tune of $10 billion? Could it have anything to do with this?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating health care, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members. Before immigration debates took place in Washington, I talked with Eliseo Medina and SEIU members. Before the EFCA, I talked to SEIU. So, we've worked together over these last few years and I am proud of what we've done. I'm just not satisfied.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Democrats, did he call you? Did he call any of your friends? Or is it just another crazy coincidence from that nut Glenn Beck?

Until all the cards are face up we cannot allow anything else to pass. No more giant bills with all kinds of goodies for special interests lost in thousands of pages of legalese.

Maybe Obama trusts the groups cobbling together these bills — like the Apollo Alliance — with the stimulus or as the president says Andy Stern at SEIU.

But I don't.

All the special interest handouts in the stimulus, health care, and cap-and-trade bills aren't there to build a better nation. They are there to build the framework of these corrupt "organizations" like ACORN and SEIU to fundamentally transform America.

And if we allow these bills to go through, an already enormous problem will spread like a disease.

We need to kill the corruption before we do anything else.

Start by rejecting those in the mainstream media who refuse to bring you the truth. Keep score on them and spread the word. For example, reports on Van Jones from appointment to resignation:

• FOX News: 51


• CNN: 9


• MSNBC: 2


• ABC: 1


• CBS: 2


• NBC: 1


• The New York Times: 1


• The Washington Post: 4


• Wall Street Journal: 1

Or reports on ACORN corruption:

• FOX News: 133


• CNN: 90


• MSNBC: 10


• ABC: 2


• CBS: 1


• NBC: 2


• The New York Times: 17


• The Washington Post: 10


• Wall Street Journal: 5

Keep questioning with boldness, hold to the truth and speak without fear. Hold their feet to the fire.

I want to talk directly to those in Washington, D.C.: This country — the greatest country the planet has ever seen — was founded by 56 men and I believe we only need 56 men today to free our government from the rabid corruption and special interests and to protect and defend the republic and the Constitution of the United States of America. You may have gone to Washington with good intentions and now find yourself in a seemingly impossible situation, you may even think there's no way out — I'm here to tell you: You are wrong.

Look at Saturday's protests: Republicans and Democrats; some of them want health care, some don't; some are pro-life, some are pro-choice. They don't agree on every single issue except one: They all want the corruption and the political games out.

They want elected (and appointed) officials to pay taxes just like they do. And to be held to the same standards as regular Americans if they fail to pay.

They don't care about special interests and they have real power and that power will stand behind you if you want to be part of the 56 re-founders and rat out the corruption. But, if you continue to be part of the problem, those same people will hold you accountable.

There's one thing about America: We love a good redemption story. If you come clean — and I can't promise it will be easy, there will be some rough days ahead — but if you come out and start the work of re-founding America, you will have an army behind you. Don't be on the wrong side of history.

We've taken a side and that's for the rule of law, for the republic, for the Constitution.

Which side are you going to be on?

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
