Glenn Beck: Remember to Look at the Big Picture




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

I'm about to show you something here that I think will help tie everything together that we've been talking about for months.

You know, when I first started this show, I told you that my goal was to always tell the truth as I understand it. But also, to do something different. The fringe media just touches on things — they don't see the big picture.

Here, we're trying to connect the dots for you.

Let me give you a few stories we've done:

There's Van Jones — to the fringe media this was barely a story at all. And even then, it was disconnected from anything else. He was just the green job guy who's a 9/11 "Truther." He didn't even know what he was signing and why would anyone care about attacking the poor man who's just trying to create safe, effective, clean energy jobs?

There was the stimulus bill. My question was: Who wrote this thing? We found out and told you: It was the Apollo Alliance — a progressive, George Soros-funded, extreme left-wing organization. Harry Reid admitted to the nation — no, actually, he thanked the Apollo Alliance for their help.

It seems we need to give up that old-fashioned notion that Congress — the men and women we elect and send to Washington — actually write the bills, they're not reading and passing. Turns out, they don't.

In some completely unrelated stories, we've told you about the ACORN corruption, which has been very evident this past week. And the fringe media has made this into a story that they're just touching on: Just a few bad workers and not massive fraud on the American taxpayers — let alone the power that they hold.

And, we've told you that there are radicals — communist, Marxists and revolutionaries — all around the president.

There's someone else that we've introduced to you that no one else is talking about, which in a few minutes, will be mind-boggling to you. And that's why I think it's time to reintroduce you to him. He was a Weather Underground founder — no, not William Ayers — the other Weather Underground founder: Jeff Jones.

Remember the Weather Underground bombed the Pentagon and police stations among other things, not to stop the war in Vietnam, but to collapse the American system. These were people who came right from the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Whenever you see that word "democratic" and it's coming from a group of '60s radicals: run for your life! Literally. That's code for Marxism and communism.

SDS wanted a revolution to overthrow capitalism and the republic in America. But they were split; they didn't know exactly how to accomplish it.

Enter Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. This lovely pair said the best way to bring about the change they sought was to get everyone on welfare, so that the system would eventually collapse under its own weight. Got it?

So, in this group of radicals were a few names we've heard before: Wade Rathke decided to try to accomplish that goal through peaceful means; William Ayers and Jeff Jones went the other way with the Weather Underground.

Why do I bring all of this up now? Why are we still talking about '60s radicals? Because, all of these people are still involved.

Wade Rathke with ACORN; his brother Dale is at SEIU — we think. No one will give us straight answer on where he went after embezzling almost $1 million.

Bill Ayers is in education — infecting young minds with his radicalism as a professor at the University of Illinois.

Jeff Jones runs a consulting firm and chairs the Apollo Alliance in New York — the same Apollo Alliance that wrote the stimulus package.

Does that sound bad? Wait there's more. (Again, the fringe media can't seem to put it together. Why? They are either complicit or wildly out of touch.)

But remember, if you're in the fringe media, this is all just conspiracy theory. I mean, you'd have to verify with crazy technology called — Google. I know — that's certainly not the full power of ABC News, but, I don't have as much time for sailing as Charlie Gibson does.

OK, so remember Jeff Jones — the co-founder of the Weather Underground, the guy we told you about a few weeks ago, due to his connection to the Van Jones. Who, by the way, the White House will remind you on their own blog: "Many of the arbitrarily labeled 'czars' on Beck's list are Senate-confirmed appointees or advisory roles carried over from previous administrations."

Nobody gets it. Step back and look at the big picture.

Nobody has looked into Harry Reid's own words: "This legislation is the first step in building a clean energy economy that creates jobs.... The Apollo Alliance has been an important factor in helping us develop and execute a strategy that makes great progress on these goals and in motivating the public to support them."

Which is why Jeff Jones writes this on his own blog: "Since mid-summer, Glenn Beck, a commentator for FOX News, and others have waged a smear campaign against the Apollo Alliance, and Van Jones, who resigned his White House post as a special adviser to the President on green jobs and clean energy. Because of my work with the New York State Apollo Alliance and my history of political activism, starting with the anti-Vietnam War movement in the 1960s, and my opposition to segregation and racism, I have also been attacked."

Notice that Jeff mentions opposition to segregation and racism. But is that what he's really known for? He conveniently leaves out co-founding the Weather Underground. That would be like me describing myself as a baker's assistant and not mentioning FOX News or this show — it's what I'm most known for.

Jeff Jones goes on: "I am committed to the idea of building a partnership of workers, environmentalists, business, government, social and environmental justice advocates."

And you know who else is behind that "social justice" thing that Jeff Jones believed in so much he was willing to blow things up?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VAN JONES: The mainstream white polluters and the mainstream white environmentalists wound up collaborating to put all the poisons in the black community, in the Latino community, in the poor communities. The toxic dumps started moving in one direction — not in my backyard.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

The Apollo project — the complaint from the Apollo Alliance was that when I talked about who wrote the stimulus bill, that I didn't include big business in there. That was their issue — that was supposed to make it better? So here's who wrote the bill: big labor, social justice advocates, environmentalist and big business? I'm sorry, where are you in that mix?

Jones wrapped it up with this: "I grew up in a Quaker, pacifist family. I was opposed to war, and registered with my draft board as a conscientious objector. But the promise of America for me was marred by segregation, and by a criminal war waged by my government against the people of Vietnam. So, as a teenager and young adult, I dedicated myself to supporting civil rights and opposing racism, and to ending the illegal and genocidal Vietnam War. I was personally enriched by participating in those movements and by the people I met, worked with, and loved in those years. This is what I mean when I say that I do not regret my militant opposition to racism and the Vietnam War. That said, like most people my age, I made my share of mistakes."

Mistakes? Blowing up the Pentagon is not a mistake. Enriched? By his work in the Weather Underground?

But here's where the train really goes off the tracks: "Today, I am using the organizing skills and insights I learned from those movements in my work as a consultant for environmental and labor groups. One is the New York State Apollo Alliance, an affiliate of National Apollo. Apollo is working toward a goal that is simple and straight-forward: create good jobs for working people in the new clean-energy economy. That is a goal I support, and work I continue to do."

So, what do we have here? Jones is using the same contacts and organizing skills that he learned in the '60s — reminder: Weather Underground. Jeff Jones has never disavowed the violence of that organization. William Ayers said in an interview that ran on September 11, 2001 in The New York Times that he wished he would've done more.

The American people wanted to know how close candidate Obama was to William Ayers to see if he had any influence on policy. Yet the fringe media doesn't even bother to look at who is actually writing our policies and who is advising the governor of New York. Not William Ayers — Jeff Jones, the other founder of the Weather Underground.

If the media picks up this story, they will concentrate on Jeff Jones. But that's not the story. You have to stand back and look at the full picture.

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.
