Arguing With Idiots - YouTube contest


Arguing with Idiots Video Contest


You could win a trip to NYC to meet Glenn! Learn how...

GLENN: And let me tell you something. This is not about our generation. This is about the next generation, and the next generation in this country, they have got to know the truth. We have got to teach them about heroes. We have to teach them about the founding, and we have to teach them the facts. That's why Arguing With Idiots came out, and we put it out and it has 25 pages of fine print footnotes. 25 pages of fine print footnotes. Number one selling book in the nation, nonfiction. Dan Brown is beating us in fiction. Common Sense is its counterpart. We put that out, what, how many weeks ago? Sixteen weeks? Sixteen weeks ago we put it out. Kevin runs the publishing division for Mercury and is the co author on Arguing With Idiots. We've been working on this book for over a year. But my goal is to be able to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. This is the book that will show you how to win the arguments, and it's not an argument against the Republicans and the Democrats. It's not. It's an argument for the truth. Where that leads you in the polling booth is your own decision.

So we have several things that we're working on now to help get this book out into the hands of those who need it the most, and one of those is I mean, if you look at the difference between Common Sense, Common Sense I wrote for thinking people that don't need a lot of pictures or anything, just want the facts. There are no drawings in there except for the gerrymandering redistricts. But there's no comedy in that book. That is just, "Here, here's the meat and potatoes" for serious people who are awake and go oh, dear God. And I made it short and I made it in a paperback so you could hand it to somebody, you could use it and say, no, no, no, the Republicans and the Democrats, both did this; here it is. And you could pass it to somebody. This one we specifically designed, riddled with ADD, we specifically designed to be easy to read for everyone. The serious thinker and the person that is, you're saying, no, no, you don't understand; here are the facts. And especially the 20 somethings, college students. Jon Stewart wrote a book that was huge with college students. This is the entryway for anybody who is struggling in college.

Now, you've put a contest together, Kevin?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: What is it?

KEVIN: We're lazy, as you know. So we're sick of marketing this book ourselves. So we thought we would we thought we would have other people help us market it.

GLENN: Okay.

KEVIN: So the idea here is and all the information's on GlennBeck.com. But the idea here is you create a video. So if you are an animator, it could be an animation. We sent a guy to Berkeley a couple of weeks ago to talk to Berkeley kids and see how little they know.

GLENN: It's great.

KEVIN: You can do that kind of whatever you want to do that you think gets the message of arguing out the most, explains the book, promotes the book, whatever. Put a video together. Throw it up on YouTube. Come to GlennBeck.com, you feel like

GLENN: Hang on. Did we ever do the cover idea, the different cover idea?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: At the colleges? We did? Do we have that coming up?

KEVIN: We did it at Berkeley. We're going to do it at a few more places. We want to get some

GLENN: I don't want to tell you what it is, but it's fantastic.

KEVIN: So whatever you can think of creatively to do as sort of a video format and, of course, there's 1500 pages of rules. So I would say crimes are not a good idea. I would say nudity is not a good idea. Yes, Stu?

STU: What? No, I didn't say that out

GLENN: Read the rules, Stu.

STU: Oh, okay.

KEVIN: So you create your video, throw it up on YouTube, fill out the form where you basically tell us where it is. Then we're going to judge them all and then we're going to pick our favorite ten videos. We're going to put them up on GlennBeck.com in about a week or so. And from that point your whole job is, if you're one of the ten finalists, your whole job is to promote your video. So this

GLENN: So wait a minute. How come it has to go through a gatekeeper like us? How doesn't it just let the people decide? Why are you so against

KEVIN: We hate democracy.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good, I just wanted to know.

KEVIN: So at that point it actually and this was the hardest thing explaining to people of how this contest is different. It actually has no it does not matter how good your video is at this point if you are one of the ten finalists. It only matters how well you can promote your videos. You get to see what it's like in our shoes. It doesn't matter if the book's good or not. It's how you promote the book. So if you get your video linked from Drudge, you get yourself on the Today, whatever you can do to promote your video. Whoever has the most hits of their video according to YouTube by the deadline date, which is all again in the rules, will be the winner and you'll come and

STU: What's the prize, Kevin?

KEVIN: Well, Stu, I'm glad you asked. The prize is a trip for two to lovely Manhattan.

STU: Lovely Manhattan!

KEVIN: Where you'll dine at Glenn Beck's favorite New York City restaurant.

STU: Yummy.

KEVIN: You'll watch the radio show.

STU: Radio!

KEVIN: You'll take cabs.

STU: Cars! We won't pay for the cabs.

KEVIN: Walk the streets.

STU: You'll be using your own cash, your credit cards.

GLENN: You are making them to be a streetwalker?

STU: Apparently you'll have other duties you'll be doing at night to earn your keep.

GLENN: ACORN. We're in bed with ACORN now apparently. And then you come and watch the TV show. So you get to spend the day with us. You know, I'm looking for creative people, quite honestly. There are many reasons why we do things we do. I'm looking for very creative people. You get this video out, you get it into the colleges, you get it into the hands of 20 somethings with the best video you can make on YouTube and I'd love to meet you. You can find out all the details at GlennBeck.com. By the way, the book is available at bookstores everywhere, coast to coast. Arguing With Idiots.

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.

DECODING the Democrats' EXTENSIVE ties to 'Big Tech'

Annie Spratt/Unsplash

The Democrats' ties to "Big Tech" and the entertainment industry have placed them in the perfect position to influence both public policy and our nation's culture. It's impossible to unweave the entire web of Democrat operatives and sleeper cells, but here are a few of the current ties between the Dems and an industry that arguably has more influence on our day-to-day lives than any other.
