Glenn unpatriotic?



Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let me switch gears here and ask am I the only one that didn't know scoring a host city for the Olympic games is to the left, the liberal left in this country the quintessential American patriot's dream? Am I the only one that didn't know that to be like Ben Franklin you have to hope that we get the Olympics? To Barack Obama and his wife Michelle and Oprah and Harry Reid and James Carville, just to name a few, a badminton match held between Chicago's United Center between Romania and Niger followed by the race walking quarterfinals with Sweden, Finland, Botswana and outer Mongolia trying to make the semi final heat in a new Olympic race walking oval built somewhere in the loop that was on land purchased by a friend of Obama would have been almost as rapturous to them as adding a second Bill of Rights. That's how committed these competition minded USA Olympic cheerleaders have always been. They love competition. Who do they think they're fooling? This is yet another unbelievably hypocritical attack on all those who haven't jumped on the hope and change bandwagon. You better get off the damn bandwagon, gang. Now they have even found a way to make the Olympics political.

Last night I damn near snapped. When Harry Reid joined the fray yesterday with this insightful comment.

REID: It's the same minority, Mr. President, this is really hard to comprehend. The same minority who happily pumped one fist which Chicago, when America lost its bid to host the Olympics. They were cheering we saw it on television because we lost the Olympics. But they shake the other fists at those that slander us as unpatriotic.

GLENN: That's amazing. We saw it on television. Gee, Harry, who was doing that on television? I'm not even sure what he was trying to say there, but that might be because I'm still reeling from his announcement that we didn't lose the Olympic bid. We lost the Iraqi war.

REID: This war's lost. The surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence.

GLENN: Now, I realize that Senator Reed has a habit of sticking his foot in his mouth and sounding like a total idiot.

REID: My staff has always said don't say this, but I'm going to say it again because it's so descriptive because it's true. Leader Boehner mentioned that tourists lined up in summer and winter, long lines coming into the capitol. In the summertime, because the high humidity and how hot it gets here, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the capitol.

GLENN: Oh, hate to have riffraff, Harry. And then like Socrates, musing, wondering, asking questions: Gee, what could it be? What is the answer? He mused on the voluntary nature of the mandatory income tax system.

REID: Our system of government is a voluntary tax system.

VOICE: Oh, if you don't want to pay your taxes, you don't have to?

REID: Of course you have to pay your taxes.

VOICE: Well, then government will force you to pay or they will fine you or imprison you, will they not?

REID: We have a voluntary system. The fact of the matter is that if when you pay your taxes see, in many other countries it's not voluntary. For example, in many countries the government makes sure that your employer takes out every penny. Many countries don't file income tax returns.

VOICE: We have withholding here, too, don't we?

GLENN: What a dope. I was also fascinated at the fiery display of Olympic patriotism from the space alien I like to call James Carville who was very, very disgusted that I wasn't all broken up over the president's failed attempt to bring the Olympics to Chicago.

CARVILLE: He's a blatant hypocrite. Here's somebody that sits on his show and weeping about how much he loves America and the 5,000 Year Leap and then he's absolutely giddy when his country doesn't get the Olympics. And this is I'll tell you another thing about Glenn Beck. He wouldn't know the difference between a football bat and a hockey court.

GLENN: I guess I'm not supposed to recall that on the morning of September 11th, 2001, just minutes before he learned of the terror attacks on America, Carville told a group of Washington reporters that he was, quote, hoping for President Bush to fail, telling them, quote, I certainly hope he doesn't succeed. He didn't have a problem with what Rush Limbaugh said, did he? Not James Carville, on September 11th, 2001 saying, I certainly hope the president doesn't succeed. Because that would be hypocritical, wouldn't it, James? Hoping the president doesn't succeed? Or hoping an Olympic bid fails. Gee, James, I don't know. Who's the hypocrite here? The left has piled hypocrisy high lately. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi lately broke down just thinking about all of the mean rhetoric on the healthcare debate.

PELOSI: I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw, I saw this myself in the late Seventies in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric. It was very frightening and it gave

GLENN: It was very, very frightening. It was very it's got to stop. We've got to stop! We can't be doing these kinds of things. And then she totally excused the incendiary rhetoric spewed by one of her own, Congressman Alan Grayson.

GRAYSON: If you get sick in America, this is what the Republicans want you to do: Die quickly. Apologize to the dead and their families that we haven't voted sooner to end this Holocaust in America.

GLENN: But she didn't have a problem with that. No, no, that's political speech. The Republicans are causing a Holocaust. No, no, that's fine. That's just political speech. Hey, did somebody say you lie? I'm sorry, Nancy. I'm sorry.

James Carville was right about one thing: I don't know a football bat from a hockey court. If you've listened to this show longer than 15 minutes, you know it. I've never pretended to be otherwise. I'm not into sports. I really don't care about the Olympic games, in any country. Oh, I'm a red blooded American. Sure, I remember when we used to have an enemy. When we used to have the Russians, I used to root for us all the time. Going up against the Russians? You bet. As soon as this country has an Olympic games where we're going up against another enemy, oh, I don't know, like the Washington Senators, you let me know. I'll be there rooting for America. Once the games are on, I want us as the United States to rack up more medals than every other country on Earth combined. But seriously, how many of us TiVo the network coverage of the Romanian synchronized swimming team going for the bronze? My problem with the games potentially coming to Chicago was corruption. I know. It's hard to believe there might be some corruption in Chicago. You'd think all of the corruption was at ACORN and the headquarters of SEIU and New Orleans, but I hear, pray tell, corruption in Chicago? It was also about spending, spending money we don't have. Oh, and a little thing we used to call priorities. Nothing makes sense in this country anymore if you talk to anybody who has any kind of power. It doesn't make sense, especially for the president to be involved like he was. And for all these leftists to suddenly feign some wild patriotic flag waving fervor over the Olympics is just about as disingenuous as it gets, and I think I'm going to vomit on somebody's shoe. Michael Moore, step to the plate. Weren't these the same people who are now just rooting for the competition of the game, to come to Chicago? Aren't these the same people who decided it was too threatening to keep score in little league baseball or soccer? I wonder if Nancy Pelosi remembers all of those horrible feelings, the rhetoric that is shouted from the ball games. Little Billy's feelings might get hurt if he actually had to learn how to handle defeat. If little Billy actually had to learn what was necessary to win next time.

There is a movement sweeping across the nation where in soccer leagues parents aren't even allowed now to cheer in their kids' matches. I'd like to remind them, go to hell. These are the same people who decided that when scores were kept, their little darling could lose every single game they ever played and at the end of the season they would still receive a participation trophy. I'm sorry, but what precious metal is the participation medal in the Olympic games? Will Bulgaria's Stephen Sissyton be awarded a competition medal for finishing 14th in the 100 meter dash? What about poor Stephen Sissyton? No, there are no medals there. But this is who they are. And the lack of pushing our kids, the lack of telling them, "Hey, get off your butt. The lack of telling them that, you know what, sometimes you lose. Teaching them that "every score is always tied, everybody's a winner" has gotten us here. But that's what these progressives do. There are those who insisted on rewarding game balls for everybody after little league baseball games. Not to look for the most valuable player after the game. No, no, no. Instead every player is a valuable player no matter how crappy they are. Bobby, great job. Sure, you're a crappy player, but we'll never say that. You struck out six times today, but you almost fouled one off the third inning. Oh, way to go. Didn't Bobby do great, everybody? Oh, he's fantastic. No! Bobby stinks at baseball! And he will never be good if he doesn't learn what he needs to learn and that is life isn't fair. Sometimes you stink. Sometimes you are not meant to play baseball. Sometimes you are meant to play a different position. Sometimes you are meant to be an artist. Sometimes you might be a garbage man. But whatever it is in life, you can be the best that you can be in your related field. Not everybody has equal talent. Not everyone has equal rewards. There's no such thing as equal score. Even God keeps count. These are the geniuses who realize that red ink was too intimidating on school papers. Oh, my gosh, it's going to hurt their feelings and then they are going to run out and they will play dodge ball? That's so dangerous! Tag! Tag! It could hurt! It could kill! It could maim! And now? Now we're expected to believe that they, they are all about the thrill of victory and the agony of... defeat? What? The human drama of athletic competition. Yeah, that's what they're all about. And if you believe that, I have a football bat to sell you that you can use in your very own hockey court.


 

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, including fentanyl, but he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" she said.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
