Glenn Beck: Which lib company flees NYC?


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


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: I was going to tell the story about who is moving out of New York. Because we said, you know, they start screwing with the taxes more than they already have, you just can't afford to do business in New York. So move out of New York. Hmmm. Guess who ‑‑ guess what media company has decided to move 25 of their 30 editorial employees out of New York and move them to tax‑free Florida?

PAT: Hmmm. Some conservative rightwing ‑‑

GLENN: The New York Times. In order to save 25 jobs, they've decided to move those 25 jobs to Florida where there's a tax haven. Now, I think personally we should call the FCC or the FTC or somebody and talk to them about localism. I mean, who's going to cover all of the local news in New York? Oh, I know they've got national news and world news, et cetera, et cetera, but has anybody counted the balance? They've only got one section of local news. What about the rest of the paper? Who's serving the local community? And I have to tell you the audacity of the New York Times, now that there's trouble after they've been talking about this kind of a progressive government, for them to jump ship. Suck it up, New York Times. Why don't you downscale. Boy, that ‑‑ you are so brilliant, you built that huge skyscraper. What a brilliant move that was, huh? Now when you're in trouble, you decide to move to states where there is no state income tax. I personally think people like this should be trapped in their own, in the own mess that they made. I have no problem. I'll move to Alaska. I'll move to Alaska. I'll live where the free live. I'll wrestle with the polar bears. Of course, I'll be armed. I'm willing to ‑‑ you know what? You want to put a state or two together? I'll move to North Dakota, brother. You just leave me and fellow libertarians alone. I'm telling you we'll survive. The rest of you won't.

STU: Glenn, they have been talking, this phenomenon is actually even worse than just how annoying they are because what's happening, and this is happening in the county that I live in in Pennsylvania is that it's been ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, I know.

STU: ‑‑ a fiscally conservative county, it's in decent shape and then everyone gets frustrated with the liberal policies that they voted in in the cities and in New Jersey and they keep leaving there and coming to my county in Pennsylvania where they in turn start voting for more liberal policies. So now we're turning my county into their old county that they had to leave.

GLENN: That's why I'm going to add one extra thing. Because I said this about a year ago. There are going to be states that if this thing falls apart, there are going to be states that say no more. No more. And they are not going to want a bunch of people moving out of these cities that were part of the problem. That's why I would like a ‑‑ papers, please. I would like a paper from the governors of states that will welcome us just saying, you're welcome at any time. Because remember what happened during the dust bowl. As crazy as this sounds, do you know that liberal‑loving California, they actually stood with armed guards, they actually stood with guns at the border and told the Okies, turn around. They were starving to death, and California said, turn around because they didn't want to be swamped in California with the people that they said caused the problem, that would bring their state down, et cetera, et cetera. That's going to happen. It's going to happen. You are going to have states who have been responsible ‑‑ what is that, about four? That have been responsible that are going to say, no, no, no, no. And instead of just, just letting people swamp the system, like basically what the United States government does, they're actually I think going to protect their borders and they're going to say, no, excuse me, you're not coming in. I think we should take a state, I think we should find a state, have the state just take it and say, you know what, we want all of the great entrepreneurs to come here. We will stand, we will be ‑‑ we will not take the government money. And if it says that, you know, we can't build our roads, then fine. We don't need their money. We'll build our roads or we'll live on worse roads for a while. But we're not going to do this to the people and we're not going to micromanage your life. And what we're going to do is we're going to stay free in this state. And entrepreneurs and brilliant people and big businesses, you come here. Which state? I mean, they have been doing stuff like this for a while, but which state is really going to put it on the line and say we'll defend ourself, we won't take this money from the federal government. No matter what happens, the people will stand together; we will help each other. You know the only one that ‑‑ again I come back, the only one I see ever doing that is Texas. You know what? New Hampshire could do that. New Hampshire could do that. But New Hampshire, I just think ‑‑ I mean, you're surrounded by ‑‑ see, that's the problem. Texas, you've got all these problems from the South. Texas with the drugs and everything else, man, those ‑‑ that is just going to come pouring over the border. New Hampshire, you've got ‑‑ I mean, no offense but I mean, you've got the ‑‑ you've got a problem from the east. You've got to put people on the border ‑‑ no, no, Barney Frank, Barney, Barney, Barney, you and your pot‑smoking gigolo friends, you've got to stay in your own state.

PAT: I didn't know what that looked like. I thought it was a nice Dieffenbachia plant. I had no idea what that was.

GLENN: What, the marijuana?

PAT: Yeah, the marijuana and the bordello that was running out of my house.

GLENN: This was a Dieffenbachia?

PAT: Yeah, I thought it was a Dieffenbachia there, too.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
