Glenn Beck: Time to Re-found America

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?

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
