GLENN: And here is the audio now of the next day on the air with Roland Burris about ACORN. Do you have that?

PAT: Yeah, coming right up. Any ‑‑

GLENN: I thought I had it.

PAT: I did, but we had it so long ago that ‑‑

VOICE: Let me ask you something else. There's a continuing story and it seems to get worse and worse as we go, and it may have changed since you voted on that particular issue and that is ACORN. You are one of the very few senators who voted to continue funding for ACORN. Why did you vote to continue that funding?

BURRIS: It is unfortunately that I was the only senator, and I'm very upset with my Democratic colleagues. ACORN has done a great deal for America, done a great deal for Illinois.

GLENN: Tons.

BURRIS: And they are dealing with the homeless, they are dealing with housing. I know ACORN in Illinois. And because you have a couple of rotten apples that's set up through ‑‑

PAT: For a prostitute, bordellos.

BURRIS: ‑‑ probably a scheme that just carries a question as to whether or not it's entrapment.

GLENN: Entrapment.

BURRIS: Then you get a situation that's done by Fox News which has no love for the president and always wanted to do that because ACORN helped register voters.

GLENN: That's all.

BURRIS: It's a political agenda.

GLENN: Right.

BURRIS: And my colleagues ought to be ashamed of themselves for voting against it. And I supported ACORN on the second vote and therefore ACORN will continue to get my vote because, okay, how about Blackwater? Why didn't they cut off the funds for those companies who not only defrauded taxpayers but these people didn't do anything.

VOICE: Let's go back, we're talking about ACORN here ‑‑

GLENN: I can't take the Blackwater thing anymore. I can't take any of it.

PAT: I mean, Blackwater, he accused Blackwater of killing U.S. soldiers? When did that happen? Blackwater, where does ‑‑

GLENN: I don't know. You know what? Can you play the Chavez clip from yesterday? Listen to this and see if you see the same tactics happening. Change the subject. Change the subject. Listen.

VOICE: Question. Many people are very confused about your friendship with President Ahmadinejad because he denies the Holocaust, one of the horrors of the 20th century and his forces were seen killing people on the streets of Tehran and other places after the election. Can you explain your friendship with him so that people understand what you're doing?

CHAVEZ: Where do you come from?

REPORTER: I work for Fox News.

PAT: Here comes a change of subject.

GLENN: Okay. Hold on just a second. Stop for a second. Now, remember what he did was, what do you think about Ahmadinejad? What do you think about Ahmadinejad, okay? What do they do? They attack Fox News. Listen.

CHAVEZ: I love when I see people from, a lot of you, you know how Sean Penn calls you?

PAT: Oh, there's a reliable source, Sean Penn.

GLENN: Yeah, Sean Penn says. Now, notice what he first does, okay? This is Saul Alinsky. What does he do? You have the question: What do you think about Ahmadinejad? He's denying the Holocaust. What do you do? You identify the target: Who are you from? What difference does that make? Who are you from? Fox News. Mock. Identify and isolate the target. Then you mock them. "I love when I meet people from Fox News." Continue. That doesn't work and then what happens?

CHAVEZ: Fox News, that's the way they call you. Not you, not you. Of course not. Fox News, the question is deficient. Your mind has many confusions perhaps.

GLENN: You are mentally deficient is what he's saying here, if you work for Fox News or you pay attention to Fox News. You are mentally deficient.

REPORTER: Sir, yesterday we heard Ahmadinejad denying the Holocaust.

GLENN: He doesn't say anything. He doesn't say anything. He just keeps going: Look, I just want to talk about Ahmadinejad. Then what happens?

REPORTER: And, sir, we saw the pictures coming from Iran, people getting killed in the streets of Iran. Please explain. My mind is fine. I think the people who ask you ‑‑

CHAVEZ: Have you seen the images in Iraq, how the Americans are killing people in Iraq? Have you seen those? And have you seen those? Your channel, your Internet has everything and your president ‑‑

PAT: That's right, right to Iraq and Bush. Iraq and what Bush did.

GLENN: What's wrong with that?

PAT: Yep, and you are only attacking because Barack Obama's black.

GLENN: Of course. That's the only reason.

PAT: Good stuff.

GLENN: That's the only possible reason that you would be attacking. Isn't that what we just heard Roland Burris do? Isn't that exactly what just happened with Roland Burris? He just says, what about ACORN? Well, what about Blackwater? Excuse me? What does Blackwater have anything to do with ACORN? You want to say, okay, fine, I'll give you Blackwater. Yep, should have Blackwater. I don't believe that but let's just say for the sake of argument, yep, should have gotten Blackwater. Now let's talk about ACORN. They don't want to because they can't. This is why talk radio works. This is why Fox News has huge ratings. Because we can stay focused on the point. Listen to this. This is from yesterday. This is Dick Durbin on the floor of the Senate where they're trying to move forward on these czars and hold these czars responsible. Listen to what Dick Durbin is saying.

DURBIN: For several weeks there's been this new interests in the czars and czarenas in the Obama administration according to Mr. Beck and some others. Some members have serious questions about the makeup of the White House staff, the bulk of noise being heard right now began first with partisan commentators like Mr. Beck suggesting that this is somehow a new and sinister development that threatens our democracy.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Let me just ask this question. First of all, I'm a partisan commentator. Which party am I for? I'm a partisan ‑‑ I'm a partisan commentator. Help me out. Which party am I for? I'm ‑‑

STU: The Green party. I believe you are a Green party commentator.

GLENN: All right, good. And then I am suggesting it is somehow a new and sinister development that threatens our democracy. Have I ever said that?

STU: You just said it then. You were just quoting that guy and you just said it again.

GLENN: I was quoting Dick Durbin. I believe I was the guy who pointed out that FDR had them. We went all the way back. Nixon had them. Reagan had them. What, do you think I don't remember William ‑‑ not William Bennett? Who is the drug czar? Was it Bill ‑‑ no, he was education. I'm trying to remember. But I remember the drug czar. That was the first time I had ever heard of a czar was under Ronald Reagan. But they all had them. But the one that really did it well was ‑‑ he didn't call them czars. He called them dictators. I believe I was the one who said that. So gee, it's not new. I certainly knew that, Dick Durbin. Maybe you should get your facts right. And you should also tell me which party it is that I'm supporting. Give me Cut 2, please.

DURBIN: I was trying to clarify how many czars are in that Muscovite conspiracy because one of his colleagues from Texas, Senator Hutchison, identified 32 as did Mr. Glenn Beck, and they included ‑‑

GLENN: Okay, stop. This Muscovite conspiracy. Well, I'm glad to see that Dick Durbin at least will admit that Van Jones was a communist even though he's ridiculing that fact.

Go to Cut 3, please.

VOICE: Political Wiseman Glenn Beck found 32 as well but went on to say that on his website ‑‑ he is a major champion on this issue incidentally ‑‑ that, quote: Since czar isn't an official job title, the number of czars in the Obama administration is somewhat in the eye of the beholder, close quote.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Isn't that acknowledging that you are covering it fairly?

GLENN: No. Only on my website. I went on to ‑‑

STU: No, said that.

GLENN: No, uh‑uh. Cut 4, please.

DURBIN: The noted guru Glenn Beck has identified 32 czars as well.

GLENN: Okay.

DURBIN: So I'd just like to ask.

GLENN: Go to the next cut, please.

DURBIN: I've been told that using the definition of "Czar" that Mr. Beck, a political advisor to some, Senator Hutchison ‑‑

GLENN: Okay. Hold on. Is anybody noticing that Dick Durbin is pointing out how many czars there are according to me like 18 times now? And what was that last one? Glenn Beck, the political advisor to some? Senator Durbin, can you help me out with that? Who am I a political advisor for?

STU: I know.

GLENN: Who? I mean, who's taking my advice? Who's following my advice? Who in Washington is following my advice? Who am I directing and moving their movements?

STU: Well, I think you are clearly some sort of advisor at some high level.

GLENN: Really?

STU: To Barack Obama. I mean, if you look at it, you know, Van Jones, you clearly were an advisor on that. Healthcare. You started this tea party movement that stalled healthcare.

GLENN: No, I really didn't.

STU: No, you did. That's what I heard in the media. How about Yosi Sergant. You talked about that. So you obviously had a meeting with Barack Obama and told them to fire that guy.

GLENN: No, I didn't.

STU: ACORN, all that stuff, they are all getting defunded and stuff. That was, of course, you obviously had a meeting.

GLENN: That was entirely me. That was entirely me, yeah.

STU: You probably had a beer summit, you know what I mean?

GLENN: I probably did.

STU: On a picnic table.

GLENN: It's weird. You're right. I may be a political advisor to the administration, maybe. Maybe that's what he meant. And could I just ‑‑ give me the last one. Who is it that's ‑‑ I don't know what you said. Great David Vitter?

GLENN: Is it Senator Vitter? Just give me the audio now, after Dick Durbin goes on and on yesterday, give me David Vitter. I understand that.

VITTER: I want to underscore three points. Number one, maybe we can talk about some other universe when we debate the Beck amendment, but we're not debating the Glenn Beck amendment today. We're talking about the Collins amendment. We'll get to vote on the Vitter amendment.

GLENN: I think that's fantastic.

STU: The Glenn Beck amendment. I like it.

GLENN: Look at this. These people are so lost, they must have an enemy. You can't actually talk about the facts. You've got to have an enemy. Let's talk about the facts. And the facts have nothing to do with the czars. The facts as individuals, they have everything to do with who are these people? Who has approved these people? And in the case of Cass Sunstein and others that have been approved, what the hell were you thinking, congress? What the hell were you thinking? You live in some parallel universe where you don't even get it. You're there to guard it. You are the cops! You are the ones that are supposed to guard the Constitution! That's your job! What do you do? You just, you open up the gate for every single person that comes in and wants to rape the Constitution. Come on in. No, he's in with me. Okay, sure. Sure, he's been saying for years that he hates the Constitution and blotty, blotty, blotty, blotty. But I think he's fine. That's just hyperbole. Really? Gee, thanks, guardians. I mean, if you want a Glenn Beck amendment, I'll give you a Glenn Beck amendment but I don't think these clowns in Washington want one. It involves the military coming in and asking a few questions. What? Maybe I should suggest that to President Obama. Maybe he would do that. After all, those tribunals, they have time now, don't they?

PAT: I think so, now.

GLENN: We're not using the military tribunals. Why not send a few up and say, hey, we've got some questions for you clowns in Washington. You know that whole protect and defend the Constitution thing? Yeah, come on. We're going to take you one by one. Come here; talk to us for a second. Let's see who's actually doing their job in Washington.

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

"We live in the era of woke religion," says Stu.

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."
