I've been down for a couple of days, so I may have missed this, but, has anybody over at the White House labeled Nidal Malik Hasan — the terrorist who killed 13 and wounded 30 more at Fort Hood — an extremist?

I've heard him referred to as a "shooter" and a "gunman." He's been called "troubled" and "harassed." We know he didn't want to be deployed and his cousin called him a "good American." But extremist?

No, we can't say that; we wouldn't want offend anyone.

Are we that politically correct? I guess so. But there is no hesitation by Barack Obama's political arm, Organizing for America, to send out an e-mail calling tea party goers extremists:

"Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand."

So, that's extremism, but killing 13 people isn't?

If there was anyone who could be labeled "extremist," you would think it would be someone who spoke of Islamic jihad to his fellow soldiers and then acted on those feelings by picking up a weapon and killing his fellow soldiers with it.

But no, there are real extremists picking up a sign and protesting big government.

Sarah Palin — she fought this horrendous health care overhaul, ran for vice president espousing certain principles and she prays. Extremist!

And, I'm an extremist because I dare expose what no one else will: That there are anti-free market officials, admirers of Mao, Marxists and socialists in and around the White House.

But Nidal Malik Hasan is just a picked upon, misunderstood, quiet, "good American," who "snapped" and murdered 13 Americans? He talked openly about his feelings before acting on them.

Did the guy snap? I don't know and I don't care. He murdered Americans in cold blood in an act of bald-faced, extremist terrorism. Maybe he acted alone, then again, maybe he didn't. What do you say we nurse him back to health, question him, have a non-government investigator look into this? Find out what happened. If he's guilty, execute him and move on America; one less dirtbag to deal with.

Oh and speaking of executions: Remember the D.C. sniper? On Wednesday night at 9 p.m. he was executed.

Good. I look forward to celebrating swift justice, that if he is guilty should end in execution. Oh, I'm sorry, is that insensitive of me? Good. I don't care about his childhood. Millions of people have messed up childhoods and they don't kill people. I had a pretty messed up childhood; I bet you did too.

Mommy didn't love me as much. Daddy didn't play with me.

Look at what they're doing to us. Look at how far the discussion has shifted. And, you're going to see and hear this everywhere now. Anyone and everyone who effectively stands in the way of the progressive agenda of the fundamental transformation of America will be labeled an extremist.

Frank Rich and the rest of the Obama-minions at The New York Times will gladly do the bidding of the administration; acting as the propaganda arm of the White House. Rich and the rest will continue to oblige in print and the trolls at MSNBC will eagerly spew the company line on TV: You're extreme; he's extreme; she's extreme; you're dangerous; hateful; outrageous and frightening. Meanwhile, the truly hateful, frightening dangers go unobstructed along their merry way.

When did words and ideas replace fists and bullets as tools of violence? Read a little George Washington, it's called the battlefield of ideas: If you don't fight it there, it will be fought with guns. Don't you see what they are creating? They are leading us to a cemetery. Society cannot survive like this.

No one at the White House or The New York Times has referred to the beat downs issued by SEIU members recently as violent or extreme.

The SEIU thugs caught on video beating down the African-American tea-party goer haven't yet been charged. Meanwhile, last weekend, there was another beat down in California. A Democrat who disagreed with the union thugs is now in the hospital. Is it extremist to beat someone because they disagree with you on health care?

Let me be clear: The terrorist Muslim extremist murderer accused of shooting the Army recruiter dead in Arkansas last summer wasn't even discussed in the media, let alone called an extremist. But, I say America can't afford another trillion dollar entitlement program? Extremist!

So, as long as that's our new reality, let's go with it. Let me make my extremist demands:

Stop spending money you don't have!

Tell us how you plan to pay for a trillion dollar health care plan!

Listen to the people; after all: You work for us!

Get rid of the corruption before you spend another dime!

Audit the Fed!

Term limits and no lifetime benefits for those 12 years of work!

Lower taxes!

Return to the principles embedded by our radical, extremist Founding Fathers!

Wow, pretty extreme, huh? Let me quote another extremist, who said: "If you want to help the poor, help them feel uncomfortable in their poverty." That extremist was... Ben Franklin. Why did he hate the poor so much? Our extremist, radical Founders all knew that government programs were not the answer to poverty. Making people comfortable in their poverty is not the answer to getting them out of poverty. It is the answer for government officials who gain power by making sure that the poverty stricken become permanently dependent upon, them. May I just give you the one word: Detroit.

Look, here's what you need to know: Because people are either afraid or have another agenda and refuse to speak the truth, question with boldness or speak without fear, 13 Americans are dead.

Not on my watch. Not on your watch. I don't care what they do to me or say about me. I'm not playing their politically correct game. This man was a terrorist; American born and bread, Muslim extremist terrorist. He was not afraid to speak his point of view. We were afraid to react it.

Let's go a step further:

Fat people aren't calorically challenged. They aren't pleasantly plump. They are fat.

Poor people aren't economically marginalized. No, they are poor.

A criminals aren't morally challenged or unsavory characters; they're criminals.

Strippers aren't exotic dancers; they are a stripper.

There's no such thing as an escort; you are a whore.

And terrorists aren't freedom fighters; they're dirtbag terrorists.

Stop playing the game. There are more of us than there are of them. Your fear of being silent clears a path for them to carry out their extremist plans and kill people! And I'm supposed to be worried about losing my job and my house? What could be worse than death?

I'm going to make a promise to you. If you spread the word, if you stand fast, if you'll question with boldness everything that comes out of Washington, if you hold tight to family, principles and values, then this country is going to turn the page and turn a corner — because of you. But it won't happen if we aren't honest with each other or if we call fat people "well-rounded" or Osama bin Laden a freedom fighter.

This is a historic time. Stand up and you will be written about in the history books.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
