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.

GLENN: Yep.

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 freepress.net. 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.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?
