GLENN: From high above Times Square, Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick freak. My name is Glenn Beck. I'm very glad you're here. There's a lot to cover today, indoctrination, the latest on ACORN. Let me start there. ACORN is extraordinarily powerful. I laid this out last night on television. The advisory council for ACORN. You have John Conyers now coming out. Remember he was the one that said the powers that be don't want me to investigate ACORN. You have John Conyers now, the powers that be apparently have talked to him again, rescinding his vote to stop all funds from ACORN. Barney Frank and John Conyers have sent a letter. They want an investigation into the two kids that made the videotape to see if they broke any laws, and they want an investigation in to see if the Constitution was violated when congress voted last week to cut off the funds to ACORN. This is when they're worried about the Constitution. They are no longer afraid of you. This week they're not afraid of you. This week they're afraid of ACORN and SEIU and the president of the United States, and the Coalition of Power do you have the statement of the coalition, the Coalition of Power that these community organizations... this is the most important clip that I think we have from the words and the mouth of Barack Obama. If you hear this clip and you understand what he's saying, you will understand where we are headed. Here it is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. The Supreme Court, he's talking about how the founding fathers, the Constitution was flawed because we never got into the redistribution of wealth. And then the Supreme Court never got into redistribution of wealth. How can anyone claim they're not a Marxist when you want redistribution of wealth? That is Stu, Pat, is there anything more fundamental than the redistribution of wealth when it comes to Marxism?

STU: It's Marxism 101 right there.

GLENN: I mean, that's it. So he's not a Marxist, but the Supreme Court never looked into that to see if it was able to happen constitutionally. But then he goes on to say this, the fundamental flaw in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Listen.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers and the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

GLENN: Stop. This is Cass Sunstein. Cass Sunstein and I believe John Holdren have come out recently and said we need a new Bill of Rights. We need a positive Bill of Rights, the things right now the Bill of Rights says we'll never as a federal government, we'll never take away your right to own a handgun, we'll never take away your right to stop search and seizure, we'll never take away your right to be able to not have to incriminate yourself or your et cetera, et cetera. But what they want is a new Bill of Rights that says does what the president is saying here, that is positive: You have a right to a job, you have a right to a house, you have a right all of these things. It's what the progressives tried under FDR. And make no mistake. This is what this president wants. Cass Sunstein, who is the regulatory czar, has spoken about this recently. It is what he wants as well. It is what the radicals want because once you change the Bill of Rights, once you and they've done it slowly but surely. With our grandparents they could not convince the American people that that should be done. So the progressives, step by step, let you believe that you have a right to healthcare. It's a right to healthcare. It's a right to have a job. It's a right to have Social Security so you can retire. It's a right to have a house.

How many times have you heard this now from ACORN: The American dream is the right to own a home. They're just making that right so you can have that right to own a home. That's not a right. It is to these people.

STU: You know, there are flashier quotes from Barack Obama that are news making, but that is you are right, that clearly defines his philosophy and what he wants to do, which is essentially to get over those initial constraints placed on us by the Constitution.

GLENN: He didn't say initial. He said essential. And essential restraints, he's right. Those are essential restraints... unless you want to destroy the Constitution and the republic and start, and fundamental transform America.

Now, this is the most important part because this is showing us how exactly he plans on doing it. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And that hasn't shifted, and one of the, I think the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change.

GLENN: Got it? Got it? The fundamental problem with the civil rights movement is it dismissed the community organizing groups that could bring the coalitions of power, political and community organizing groups that could bring together the Coalition of Power that will bring about redistributive change. How does anyone else explain this? Help me out. How is this not a front page story? These are the president's own words. He is bringing together the Coalition of Power through these community organizing groups, organizing for America! And he has brought together this Coalition of Power, ACORN, SEIU, Tides Foundation. Give me some of the other ones that are out there. Basically all of the unions. The Coalition of Power, business through the Tides Foundation. They brought all of these businesses together. This is what's happening. And if you think that you're going to buy into this bull, that you're not going to get a tax increase, you're not going to get a tax increase. Please! You're going to have a set wage. This country

WILSON: Have a maximum wage. This country will go into redistributing of wealth. The redistribution of wealth, it's happening. It's coming.

PAT: If they are going to bring about a second Bill of Rights and, you know, I have the second Bill of Rights that FDR outlined. You have to. You have to have a maximum wage because you've got to take all the rest and give it to others.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: To provide them a free home and a job and all of those things that they have a right to.

GLENN: Why did I say about six months ago that it was important to understand what happened under Woodrow Wilson? And I said at the time, it's important to understand this because we this time are England. Do you remember me saying this? That we are England, and China is the United States. It may not even be China. I'm not sure who the other side is. It may try to be a global power but I'm guessing that it's China. But we're England this time. It is important that you understand the progressive movement under Woodrow Wilson, and it is also important that you understand what happened beginning in World War I. I said at the time, World War I set the stage. America became the dominant force in the world during World War I but we just didn't know it. The world didn't know it until 1945. But in World War I when Woodrow Wilson was setting the stage, he dismantled the world's strongest Navy, England. He dismantled every single other country, every other force in World War I, and he did it through his financial policies. England and Europe was in trouble. They couldn't afford the war and so they were selling and we were buying. We were England. Headline: HSBC bids farewell to dollar's supremacy. The sun is setting on the U.S. dollar as the ultra loose monetary policy of the U.S. Federal Reserve forces China and other vibrant economies of the emerging world to forge a new global currency order. This according to a new report by HSBC. That's the headline.

Listen to this. Quote: The dollar looks awfully like the sterling after the first world war. Read history. We are repeating it. This doesn't end well if we don't stop it. The dollar is going to be destroyed. Once the dollar is destroyed, Stu, what did I say before the World Trade Center was attacked and we were talking about Digital Angel? By the way, have you heard the latest from the makers of Digital Angel, VeriChip?

STU: I have not.

GLENN: VeriChip is working with the United States government. They just did a new deal to track the swine flu digitally with new chips. We have called. We have I have called several different business people to verify that these things are happening and we're going to release this report next week. Several different places to verify that the business deals with the government and VeriChip are happening. They are happening. We have called five times to get a response from VeriChip. No response. They want absolutely no publicity on this. I don't know what's going on, but I know that VeriChip has just entered a deal with the United States government to be able to track the swine flu. VeriChip is the company that made Digital Angel. In the year 2000 I said you don't want the government in bed with this kind of technology. Not because I was worried about something in 2000 but I said do you remember the phrase? The phrase was if you introduce fear and hunger into this society, this society will accept any dictator. They will follow anyone, if you introduce fear and hunger. And you do not want this digital satellite tracking chip technology in the hands of our government. That was in 2000.

STU: Yeah, and that's a formula that's repeated itself throughout the world over and over and over again.

GLENN: Over and over and over.

STU: When fear and hunger are introduced, people will leave everything that they thought they had behind.

GLENN: It is why I have been saying you must know what you believe. You must know what you believe because, quite honestly, I will starve to death. Quite honestly I will fight to my last breath. I know what I believe. I didn't for a very long time. I still am a work in progress. I stim am learning every day.

I was reading Thomas Jefferson last night again. There is so much yet to learn, but I know what the basic truths are. You must find those truths. You must find them. You must make them the cornerstone of your life. Fear and hunger is coming. What we're doing with the Fed is intentionally destroying our dollar. It is going to be I don't know how long it will take. It may take two weeks, it may take two years, it may take outside you talked to deep throat with me, Pat. Do you remember what was his outside estimate?

PAT: Three, I think. Two to three.

GLENN: It's coming. It's coming. And you're seeing it now. It is the front page of the Drudge Report: New global currency. So what do you do? You unite. The thing that saves us every time, there is nothing I go back to what I said on September 11th. No force from the outside will ever destroy us. It will only be a force from the inside that rips us apart. We must unite. We must unite on the principles and the values that we know to be true. We must not sell our soul to the highest bidder. We must not sell our soul for a loaf of bread. We must not sell our soul because, well, I'll be able to keep my house. Lose your house. Save yourself. I know that we're not that different. You may not agree by say things, you may not agree with all of my philosophies, but we're not that different. If you have children, you don't care about you. You care about your children. And if you don't, well, then remember the day your child was born, how your life changed. It no longer was about you. It was about them. We must preserve the way of life for our children. They must they don't have to have money. They don't have to have stuff. They don't have to have iPods. They don't have to have anything. They have to have freedom and liberty.

Look, our founders crossed the mountains in wagons. Our founders created something unbelievable with candlelight. We could lose everything. It doesn't matter. As long as we have each other. Americans will always survive. Beyond that we will always thrive. We are the people that changed the world. We still are those people. It's a scary time. It's a scary time. But I believe we were all born at this time for a reason. We're the ones to bring us through it. We're the ones to set the table for the next generation. We're the ones to sweep up the mess. Many of us, including me, we made the mess. Clean up after ourself. Set things right. We can do it. But only if we have fierce determination. Only if he we don't concentrate on the things that divide us. When it comes down, we must speak the truth. And that may seem divisive to some people, it may seem like hate speech to some. It's only because they are refusing to look at the truth. The truth just is. We look at the truth and then we find the things that unite us and we stand together. And we'll make it through anything.

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.
