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.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

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?

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
