Glenn Beck: Making the case...

Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

GLENN: Last night I unveiled this board, one that we had been I mean, you know, divine providence sometimes. We had been waiting on it for two weeks and we haven't got it right, haven't got it right, haven't got it right. Finally we did it last night and I think we got it right. And I showed you. At the top of the hour I'm going to play a package that we played last night. It was toward the top of the show and it was it's powerful. It is powerful. And it shows you exactly, in their own words, their own audio who these people are and what they're planning on doing. Divine providence. Today in the Washington Post. Yes, journalists deserve subsidies, too. Here it is. President Obama's self declared big newspaper junkie fears that he might be forced to go cold turkey. I'm convinced that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions with no serious fact checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context that all you'll end up with is getting people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding, he said last month to newspaper editors who asked about the crisis that threatens their industry and journalism in general.

PAT: Which is also fascinating when you think about the net neutrality thing where he's talking about protecting people's rights to blog and the open Internet and all of that.

GLENN: You don't want a lot of people shouting.

PAT: No.

GLENN: It's not only the demise of big name papers that should raise concern. The rapid decline of the newspaper industry is playing out quietly, with small, reasonably responsible dailies in cities and rural regions across the country disappearing without widespread notice. Dozens of daily and weekly newspapers have closed this year. Cities that once enjoyed the fruits of newspaper competition (Denver, Seattle) are starving. "Surviving" publications and many have filed for bankruptcy are cutting reporting staffs to the bone (this month, the New York Times said it would cut 100 more newsroom jobs). Maybe if you want to survive you come into the 21st century, New York Times. It doesn't seem to me that the Wall Street Journal is having problems. In fact, the Wall Street Journal I believe is the only one that actually increased. Maybe it has something to do with their reporting. Maybe it has something to do with their trust. Maybe it has something to do with they're online and they have invented a new model. This is like trying to save the horse and carriage industry. It doesn't work. Now, who wrote this editorial opinion? Robert McChesney. If you watched the show last night, you know who Robert McChesney is. Robert McChesney is a Marxist, a Marxist revolutionary who I told you last night has been meeting with the White House. This isn't wait until Monday. Wait, wait until Monday.

PAT: You'll hear a little bit more about his former organization, the Monthly Review, which is a socialist, Marxist magazine.


PAT: And he went from that to this new Free Press thing. What's fascinating, we should play this.

GLENN: Play it.

PAT: Today. The way okay, so now that you know who Robert McChesney is, he's a Marxist, the way

GLENN: This isn't like somebody who says, oh, he's a Marxist with school and I hung out with Marxists. This guy said

PAT: Big time.

GLENN: capitalism needs to be taken apart brick by brick. We'll have audio of him coming up in just a little while.

PAT: And armed with that information, his organization that he co founded is called Free Press.

GLENN: And they are the ones behind net neutrality.

PAT: Listen to the commercial from free press.

VOICE: Ever wonder why you get 500 channels but there's nothing good on TV? Or why your high speed Internet is so slow and so expensive? Or why you always hear the same music on the radio no matter where you go? We wondered, too, and then we decided to do something about it. We're PrePress and we're fighting for hard hitting journalism, diverse media ownership and fast, affordable Internet for everyone. Free Press is making sure the American people, not just lobbyists and big monopolies, have a say in what the future of media and communication looks like in vital areas like protecting the open Internet for free speech and innovation and delivering affordable Internet access to all Americans by bridging the digital divide and building a real national broadband plan. Free Press is helping to save the news and protect real journalism and strengthen and reinvent public media for the 21st century.

GLENN: Public media.

VOICE: And together with our 500,000 members across the country, we're leading a national movement for media reform.

VOICE: I want journalism that actually provides me information.

VOICE: I want internet that encourages innovation.

VOICE: I want journalism that is independent.

VOICE: Join us by signing up at Learn more and take action in our campaign, and make a contribution.

GLENN: Stop. I want to play the Van Jones audio that we played for you last hour. The Van Jones audio of what this is really all about. Remember Van Jones is also a Marxist communist. I got word last night that the reason why Van Jones was ushered out is because there's much, much, much more in the skeleton or the closet of Van Jones now.

PAT: Oh, I bet.

GLENN: Yeah. I know we knew more but I was told by somebody in the know last night, you don't know, Glenn, you don't know. This is Van Jones. Now, he is, he is no less a Marxist than Robert McChesney who was writing the editorial in the Washington Post, who is meeting with our president and who is behind net neutrality and the whole "Let's bail out the newspaper" thing, okay? Robert McChesney and Van Jones cut from exactly the same cloth. McChesney says capitalism needs to be taken apart brick by brick. Wait until you hear some audio coming up in about 20 minutes. And this is Van Jones. Listen to this.

VAN JONES: Once we are in that situation where people who we agree with more than we don't are governing, the role of progressive media could change. You cannot have an opposition movement without opposition media.

GLENN: You cannot have an opposition movement without opposition media. They need the media for the revolution that Mark Lloyd says is so important in Venezuela. This is what they're headed for. I have said to you before, and we laid the case out last night, these are revolutionaries. You must decide, America, and your friends must decide. There's no sidelines here. This is you're either on the side of the revolutionaries for Marxism and a new Venezuela here in America, or the revolutionaries of 1776.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
