Arguing with Idiots - Andrea Mitchell


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


by Glenn Beck

PAT: Did you see that George Soros is not a leftwing guy?

GLENN: Do you have the audio of this?

PAT: This a relief because we've been worried about George Soros

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: being, you know, kind of out there on the leftwing fringe. Not at all.

STU: I was fairly convinced. But hey, ACORN is endorsing Republicans. So who knows.

PAT: That's right. So I mean, the whole world is kind of changing. I think you've said it before. The paradigm is changing.

GLENN: Yeah. So when you have a Republican being endorsed by ACORN which if I were a Republican, I would run from that endorsement. But when the Republicans decide, hey, let's pick this person as a candidate and they are endorsed by the working family parties and also ACORN, then you know you've got a paradigm shift and you pretty much know what you have in the Republican Party. But hey, there is hope. Lindsey Graham is stepping to the stage.

Now, the second thing is Andrea Mitchell on television talking to, who was it?

PAT: Orrin Hatch, Senator Hatch, yeah. He's being picketed, I guess, because of his what was it? It's his support for something or other.

GLENN: And Orrin Hatch is not I mean, is not the guy that you think of as a tiger for, you know, for anything. I mean, you know, God bless Orrin Hatch. He is a very nice man.

PAT: I'm sure he is.

GLENN: And I love him, you know, and he's a good man. However, I mean, he is not exactly the defender of liberty at this point, you know.

PAT: I won't call him like his good close personal friend Ted Kennedy was the liberal lion. I certainly wouldn't call Orrin Hatch the conservative lion.

GLENN: The conservative lion, yes. But he's not anyway, so he's on with Andrea Mitchell, and Andrea Mitchell tears into him. Now listen to this.

HATCH: Now, by the way, moveon.org is an ask your will you say organization. It's funded by George Soros, he is about as leftwing as you can find in this country and they are up to one thing and that is to smear good people and frankly they are not going to smear me without getting kicked in the teeth by me.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. That's the Orrin Hatch that I miss!

STU: That's a lion.

GLENN: There's the conservative lion.

PAT: That's not a teddy bear.

GLENN: That's the Orrin Hatch that I want to see more often.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That guy. Yes, Orrin! Yes!

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: By the way, did you notice that when the president didn't have a problem with the Chamber of Commerce when they were in the bag for the bailouts, when they were in the bag for the stimulus package. But now that they've come out against healthcare

PAT: They are the worst.

GLENN: They are the worst and need to be destroyed. It's the politics of the past, okay? Wait, wait, wait. You liked them the last two times, but they disagree once and they must be destroyed by the White House. This should tell you exactly what we've been talking about this week. They are this White House does not enjoy your right to free speech. But let me tell you this: I predict the harder the Chamber of Commerce fights against Barack Obama's policies, the more money and the more power they'll gain. And let me make this prediction: The fewer candidates that the Republican Party runs like Lindsey Graham and those endorsed by ACORN or the Working Families Party that actually mean it, the more Republicans sound like Orrin Hatch did here in this little snippet, the more money they'll raise, the better chance they'll have of winning. Call me crazy.

All right. So Orrin Hatch just let Andrea Mitchell have it about George Soros and here's what happened.

MITCHELL: I don't know. I wouldn't characterize George Soros that way. He supports a lot of different groups including the Clinton global initiative. But you're entitled to your opinion on that.

PAT: Awesome.

GLENN: So George Soros is not lefty.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Because he does a lot of great things like the Clinton global initiative. Right?

PAT: That rightwing kookery? He supports that?

STU: That is a that's not a perfect, like, example of how out of touch media people are.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: You don't think that Clinton you do remember was a Democrat, and he's talking about a global initiative which if I I mean, if I remember right it's all about climate change and all these other leftwing causes and she doesn't even consider that leftwing. What is leftwing? It's the Democratic president's global initiative!

GLENN: Somebody go to Clinton global initiative or whatever it is. Go to that website. Look at their mission statement. Been a while since I've seen it. Just read their goal or objective or mission statement, whatever it is. I mean, and tell me this isn't, this isn't crazy, socialist, leftwing nonsense, no.

STU: Well, first of all it's a dot org. So we know it's nonpartisan. Let's see. Commitments? Or about us? Let's see what "About us" is.

GLENN: I don't remember.

STU: Okay. We've got an "About us."

GLENN: Yeah, try

STU: Accomplishments? Our model?

GLENN: Try "Our model."

STU: Okay. Let's see. The Clinton global initiative is unlike any other organization or event. Rather than directly implementing projects, CGI facilitates cross sector partnerships. That sounds fantastic, cross sector partnerships?

GLENN: Partnerships, I love those!

STU: That in turn create and carry our projects carry out projects of their own choosing. CGI members come from a wide variety of professions. Well, that seems very there's nothing wrong with that.

PAT: That's diverse.

STU: Cultural and religious backgrounds. Wow, that's fantastic. And geographic regions. It crosses all those barriers. Heads of state, corporate and nonprofit executives, academics, media representatives, religious leaders, university students and global citizens join global citizens join with the CGI community to develop unique solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges.

GLENN: Yeah, I can't find it, but there's there is this unbelievable

STU: Yeah, I thought there was a mission statement type of thing.

GLENN: There is a mission statement some place that just talks about I can't find it now. Where it just, I mean, it's all about, you know, global citizenry and how we all just need to be together in one global, one global community.

STU: It is called a global initiative. Here's the things that they have accomplished. Are you ready for these? More than 10 million children have gained access to a better education. That's fantastic. That's not right or left. I mean, unless you're left. Then you say that it's left. But when you want to present it in the middle, then you say it's in the middle.

PAT: Well, you say it's left because the rightwing wants to eat children. The left wants to educate them.

STU: You can't educate an eaten children. Children that have been devoured is impossible to educate.

GLENN: Children that have been educated will say, hey, you shouldn't be eating me.

PAT: Good point.

STU: Good point.

GLENN: Thank you.

STU: The equivalent of 60 million metric tons of CO2 emissions have been

PAT: Really?

STU: The equivalent of that.

GLENN: Now, the equivalent of that. Not that.

PAT: What would that mean, the equivalent?

STU: But whatever it is is equal to that.

GLENN: So they planted a really big tree. That's carbon offset nonsense.

PAT: Yeah, yeah, I love that.

STU: In fact, as you brought that up, more than 33 million acres of forest have been protected or restored.

GLENN: Those are or restored.

STU: One of the two.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Is that like jobs created or saved?

STU: Or saved. Trees that have been created or saved under this plan.

GLENN: Wait. Hang on just a second. Give me the forest thing again.

STU: More than 33 million acres of forest have been protected.

GLENN: Protected.

STU: Or restored.

GLENN: Or restored. To what?

STU: I don't know. Like when International Paper cuts down a paper, you know, a forest to build paper and then they plant the trees, does that count?

STU: They do that anyway. Weyerhauser cuts them down and replants them. Otherwise they don't have paper.

STU: Right. Which is in their best interest to do.

GLENN: Weyerhauser, we're just restoring forests, that's all we do.

STU: You joke, but that's where the carbon offsets go.

GLENN: I know, to people who are already restoring the forest so they can cut it down again!

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

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 ...
