GLENN: Okay. So now let's move to NBC. Last night in their continuing coverage on what's really important in America, Brian Williams was off the fluorescent light kick for just a second and moved right into Jimmy Carter's views of that all‑important issue, Joe Wilson. Is he a racist?

VOICE: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said he is ‑‑

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Hang on. Could you play that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: A certain number of signs. What number of signs? Were there four?

STU: Zero?

PAT: Was it a million?

GLENN: Was it a million? A certain number of signs.

PAT: I love that kind of journalism. Great.

GLENN: It's yellow journalism.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Which, I don't know. Is that racist anymore? Am I making a comment about a race by calling it yellow journalism now? I'm not sure.

PAT: I don't know any yellow people. Do you?

President Jimmy Carter on Brian Williams

GLENN: No, I don't know. I don't know yellow people.

STU: SpongeBob.

PAT: SpongeBob? Okay, sorry. Stand corrected.

GLENN: SpongeBob? Thank you. Why do I hate SpongeBob so much? I'm clearly aware that yellow journalism has nothing to do with SpongeBob SquarePants or any other person that might be yellow but when do the facts matter anymore? So why is Brian Wilson ‑‑

PAT: You may be hearing from the association of jaundiced people later on today.

PAT: Can I tell you something? My son was born jaundiced. I hated him when he was yellow.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I hated him. All right. So Brian Williams goes on with his yellow journalism.

PAT: A certain number of times.

GLENN: Setting up people, as these tea party people as being violent haters.

REPORTER: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Pause it. No, I just want to let you know because you can't see the video, they are not showing signs of that. By the way, do you hear people singing the Star‑Spangled Banner and patriotic songs in the background? Such hate mongers. And there's no signs that they're showing on television.

PAT: They are showing the signs. Just, none of them have anything to do with with race, hate, violence, nothing.

REPORTER: A certain numbers of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said ‑‑

GLENN: What were the violent themes? I'm trying to think of one violent theme.

PAT: What was the racial theme? What was the violent theme?

GLENN: Oh, I remember. The NBC story that they did with the white guy carrying the gun that turns out to be a black guy because they just didn't, they just cut off his head and his arm in the shot.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Luckily our cameras were there and we had the same guy and the same shot and we showed that it was an African‑American.

STU: That is the point here, though, is that's why the wording is so careful of "Some." I mean, there are some.

GLENN: Of course there are.

STU: Of course there are. In every group there are idiots, always.

GLENN: I'm tired of the counting thing. University of Indiana did, you know, the computer thing where, you know, they measure the space and the ‑‑

STU: Oh, yeah?

GLENN: The number of people. You didn't know this?

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7 million people.

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7.

PAT: I didn't see any of that because I was... sailing.

GLENN: Computers? Why not just listen to the politicians count. Would you like some Grey Poupon?

PAT: Surely, on my yacht.

GLENN: So anyway, he's making this great case so far. And then he gets right to the expert of all race issues: Jimmy Carter.

CARTER: An overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward ‑‑

PAT: That's line a certain amount of signs, isn't it? An overwhelming portion.

CARTER: Of President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

CARTER: African‑American.

GLENN: I wasn't aware of that. Did you know that?

PAT: That when you say "You lie," that just means ‑‑

GLENN: That means I hate black people.

PAT: ‑‑ you hate black people. I didn't know that.

GLENN: You know who I feel like? Haley Joel Osment: I hate black people. Anybody else was like, "You lied." I can just stand there and go, "He hates black people." That's what we should have. We should have just little Haley Joel Osment on the set everywhere just to watch the news: "He hates black people." That guy hates black people, too. I'm pretty sure he hates black people."

PAT: I didn't like what Barack Obama was wearing today.

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm opposed to the healthcare reform...

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm really ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm against ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I didn't say anything yet.

GLENN: I don't ‑‑ It's Pat talking. He hates black people.

PAT: I don't ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm not sure ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people. Look at the hate.

PAT: I'm just curious ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, he's got a gun.

PAT: If only we could‑‑

GLENN: He's got a gun.

PAT: Unity is ‑‑

GLENN: He's got a bomb.

PAT: Diverse ‑‑

GLENN: Run, run.

PAT: More diversity.

GLENN: Help me. We're all in danger.

PAT: We need to be more tolerant.

GLENN: Help, help, help, help, help. Killer on the loose.

PAT: I'm out of here.

GLENN: Son of Sam.

GLENN: I don't think so.

GLENN: Son of Sam. He's the devil.

PAT: I'm not even speaking.

GLENN: My gosh. Jesus, is that you? Help me, please, please, please. The devil is right here. He's hating so many people. He's just killed the entire planet, for CO2.

STU: I don't know why Pat is lighting his bombs instead of setting them on timers or something.

GLENN: He hates black people. Stu ‑‑

PAT: That was clearly racist in nature, clearly, clearly racist.

GLENN: It's like a Klan meeting between these two.

PAT: It's time to put on those pointy hats. Who was the Georgia Republican, or Democrat? Hank Johnson.

GLENN: Yeah. Do we have Hank Johnson?

PAT: Another guy, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to Hank Johnson. This is great.

PAT: If we didn't censure Joe Wilson, here's what he thought.

JOHNSON: It does not help the cause of diversity and tolerance with his remarks.

GLENN: It doesn't help.

JOHNSON: If I were a betting man, I would say that it instigated more racist sentiment feeling that it's okay. You don't have to, you don't have to bury it now. You can bring it out, talk about it.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. If he's a betting man, he's just lost. If I was a betting man, I would say that the false cries of racism on Joe Wilson, when there's absolutely nothing to back ‑‑ just back it up. Just back it up. You want to say, "Hey, I think this guy is a racist," well, then let's listen to the explanation. Let's ask: What is your evidence that he's a racist? What is your evidence? And let's do it with peace and love in our hearts. What is your evidence? I haven't heard their evidence. Has anybody even asked their evidence? I'd like to ask for the evidence. What evidence do you have that ‑‑ because maybe he is. I don't know. I've looked. We've had our researchers look. I haven't found any evidence. So let's hear it. Maybe he is. But that should be asked. Why would you say that? Because racism is real. And if you have evidence, well, then we should listen to it. And maybe we can convince them that they're either right or they're wrong. Maybe we can say, oh, my gosh! Oh, I hear your evidence now! Oh, I see, okay. You're right. Or... no, you're wrong and here's why. You see? That's maybe what we should do. It's kind of like, it's really interesting to me. When somebody cries fire, why do they cry fire? Because it's dangerous. Kind of like racism. It's dangerous, okay? So if somebody cries fire, how come we've just now entered a world where if somebody cries fire, nobody says, wait, wait, where? Where? You see smoke? Help me out. Where's the fire? How come we either just say, you liar! There is no fire! You should be thrown out of a window! Or... yeah! There's a fire in here and you started it! Why do we do that? Why do we do that? Why don't we reasonably and rationally say, hang on just a second, where's the fire? I don't any evidence of fire; where's the fire? No, don't you smell that? You smell the smoke? No, I don't ‑‑ oh, hang on just a sec. Yes, I do. Let's call the fire department and look and find out where this smoke is coming from. Why don't we do that anymore? Because it's really not about fire. It's really now, the cries of racism most times, not all times, some people have evidence and would like to have that conversation. When there are cries of racism, sometimes it's not because there's real racism. Sometimes it's because there's somebody milling around in the office, you know, that might figure out what's going on in the office and then might report it. And so what do they do? Fire! Fire! To get everybody out of the office. So they can continue to cover up what they need covered. And so you're all standing out in the sidewalk going, "Gee, fire." But you know what? After that person cries fire over and over and over again and there is no fire, maybe we should look at that and say, why do they keep crying fire? I'm just sayin'. If we really felt racism, which I do, if we really felt racism was bad and harmful, we would ask more questions about it when we heard those cries. And we decide which was the truth and then we do something about that truth.

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.

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.
