Glenn Beck: Another indoctrination video

School kids taught to praise Obama

GLENN: Okay, I want to show you and tonight I'm going to play the tape for you, of indoctrination that is going on. We've been going through all of this indoctrination for the last few days. Tomorrow I do a full hour live with moms and their children, and we're going to talk a little bit, things they are concerned with and indoctrination I know will come up. Play this. This is do we know where this is from? Elementary school in Burlington, New Jersey at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School. The woman who did this is I believe an activist. She's a principal, the teacher. I don't have her name here, but listen. These are elementary schoolchildren and they are singing a song for Barack Obama.

PAT: First of all, the kid starts mouthing what he wants, what they want the whole group to do and then the whole group.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: They are saying Barack Hussein Obama and then they are talking about it. Can you skip to the and I'm going to read the this is really hard to it was really hard to understand them, but I'm going to give you the words here.

PAT: Here we go.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: Okay. Barack Hussein Obama. He said that all must lend a hand to make this country strong again, mmm.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: He says Barack Hussein Obama, he said we must be fair today; equal work means equal pay, mmm.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: Barack Hussein Obama, he said we must take a stand to make sure everyone gets a chance, mmm.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: Barack Hussein Obama, he said red, yellow, black or white, all are equal in his sight.

PAT: Wow.


PAT: That used to be kind of sung about Jesus.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. All are equal in his sight.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I actually asked

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: When the transcript was being read to me this morning, I actually asked, is that a capital or a small H, and it is a small H.

STU: Well, at least in our transcript it is.

GLENN: At least for the time being.

PAT: Wow.

STU: That's it could come right out of a hymnal.

PAT: It could. Yes, it could.

GLENN: A hymnal, hymnal for a dictator.

STU: That's

PAT: Or demagogue.

GLENN: Does anybody see what's going on? Does anybody see what's going on? How are so many good Democrats missing let me ask you this: How are so many of my Jewish friends missing what's going on? How? How? Did you not listen to what was happening yesterday in the United Nations? How are you missing this? Look, it doesn't matter if you voted for him. It doesn't matter here's one of my biggest fears. My biggest fear is too many people are afraid to then say, okay, I was wrong. You don't have to say you were wrong. You don't. And listen. If you were talking to your friends who voted for it, don't say that. Don't say, "I told you so." Don't say that. Celebrate that they are awakening. Don't make them say that they were wrong. Don't make them turn against their own party. Make them turn against the principles. Make them celebrate that they are waking up and standing with the principles that you know they believe in. That's it. Just fight for the principles and the values that you know you have in common with the people that are Republican, Democrat, and independent. The values have been distorted and abandoned and quite frankly spat upon in Washington. There's nobody, there is nobody that I know that is a Democrat that would agree with this, nobody. This is indoctrination. This should horrify the American people. And you can separate yourself from it all you want. You can say, well, that's not the Democrats that are doing that, that's not Barack Obama. You know what? Let me tell you something. How many, how many, not just signs of smoke, how many fires must we have before we have to say, okay, wait a minute. Look, if there was nobody in Barack Obama's administration that was into indoctrination, if Valerie Jarrett was not involved in the NEA indoctrination, in the propaganda, if we didn't have Van Jones in the administration, if we didn't have Tides putting out what we showed you earlier this week that is anticapitalist, if we didn't have all of these things that are not smoke, they're fire, I'd agree with you. This is just a crazy teacher, this is a crazy teacher. We've dismissed the people that, you know, are making those kids, you know, march in the military fatigues going, "For Barack Obama I..." okay, all right. Don't know. We don't know who these people are. But haven't we seen enough yet to say, whoa, wait a minute? I may have voted for the guy, but this is not what I had in mind.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
