Glenn Beck: Missile Defense Shield

GLENN: Oh, yes. It is Friday. That means we open up the phones to you and ask Glenn anything. The number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. I asked yesterday several times what exactly did we get for giving up the missile shield. What was it that we exchanged things for in the missile shield? The front page of the Drudge Report today is saying that the polls said we have been sold to the Russians, and they are exactly right. But what did we sell out for? What was it we got? You know when Ronald Reagan went to Reykjavik, he had the missile shield. He had Star Wars. The only thing is we didn't have Star Wars. We were bluffing. We didn't have it. But we sure made them believe we had it because we could negotiate. Well, now here we have the missile shield. Eastern Europe is begging us to install it. The world's on fire and what happens? What do we do? We give it up? For what? How did we sell out Eastern Europe? What did we sell it for? I contend we sold it for GE.

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: In a strange coincidence yesterday, just hours after we announced that we were giving up the missile shield, GE announced that they would be meeting with Vladimir Putin along with, who is it, Merrill Lynch or one of those?

PAT: Yeah, Chase? J.P. Morgan Chase, yeah.

GLENN: One of them that's still in business. Obama says that he just got something faster and better. I don't know what that is. What is it that's faster? Ron, what is it that's faster and better than the missile shield? Putin is now praising Barack Obama saying that he's a brave, brave man. Oh, yes. Oh, yes, there's somebody I want to get praise from, Vladimir Putin. Ahmadinejad meanwhile says Israel will not last long. Netanyahu is asking the world please, please don't abandon us.

So let's just see who we've abandoned here recently. We've sent a statue back, a bust of Winston Churchill, or tried to. Hey, hey. Yeah, that statue of Winston Churchill, no thanks. You can have it back. We said that to England. The prime minister said no, no, no, that was a gift from our country after September 11th. Yeah, that's okay. You can send it back. No, no. No, it was a gift. You can keep it in one of your museums if you wish. No, that's okay. Why would you do that? We give the queen an iPod with all of the hits of Obama, all of the great speeches of Obama. Why would you do that?

STU: It did have the High School Musical soundtracks on it as well.

GLENN: It did? I didn't know that.

PAT: That was huge. That was huge.

GLENN: That's media spin. Why wouldn't they put that in there?

PAT: Now, the Gordon Brown movie collection that's not compatible with the British system, did that have High School Musical as well?

STU: I believe it did.

PAT: It did? Okay.

STU: He couldn't watch it. He wouldn't know if it did. But it could have.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: We have now alienated our allies, our ally of Israel. Israel knows who they're dealing with, with Barack Obama. We have sent people over to Syria; meet with them. We've now received a nice book from Hugo Chavez. We've got people here in America making great movies about Chavez. We have our congressmen going down to meet with Fidel Castro and his brother and, you know, we really should look into the great system of Cuba.

PAT: Don't underestimate what he's sure, it's communist but look what he's put together.

GLENN: Look what he's brought.

STU: Look at the weather down there, beautiful.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

PAT: Beaches and gambling.

STU: You're underestimate you can't just monolithically paint Israel as understanding, you know, who Barack Obama is. If I remember that poll right, I think 4% of Israelis believe he's in their corner. So

PAT: That's typical of Glenn, though, continually exaggerating the point.

GLENN: I know, I'm sorry.

PAT: It was 4%?

STU: 4.

GLENN: I was painting with too broad of a brush.

PAT: Stop it.

GLENN: There's 4% of the bristles that shouldn't have been in that paint.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: I apologize.

STU: It's important to admit the truth, Glenn.

GLENN: I believe we are, for the first time in our history, we are seeing our country on the wrong side of history. We are seeing our country push our traditional allies away and embrace our traditional enemies. What are we doing? What did we get in return for selling out Eastern Europe? You don't just give that up. Is it a coincidence that GE gets to go meet with Vladimir Putin now? Traditionally speaking, what happens is the former Soviet let's just call a spade a spade. The Soviet Union, they announce something like this, that there's going to be a meeting weeks before there's an announcement of a giant deal. Was a deal made with American big business that is in bed and in the Oval Office? Was a deal made to sell eastern Europe out? I hope to God not. I hope to God not. But the Poles say today, not the polls but the Poles, the Polish believe they have been sold out by us.

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.
