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.

After getting TROUNCED in Wyoming, Liz Cheney reckons she might run for PRESIDENT

Wyoming Republicans have sent Rep. Liz Cheney — and the Republican Party — a "massive message" by voting her out of Congress, but it now looks like Cheney is trying to turn this into an Abraham Lincoln moment.

After seeming to compare herself to former President Abraham Lincoln, who "was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all" during a speech Tuesday night, Cheney appeared on NBC's "TODAY" show Wednesday and told host Savannah Guthrie that she's "thinking about" a White House run.

Is it possible she didn't get the message?

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere marveled at Cheney's tone-deaf response to Tuesday's devastating defeat, which, surprisingly, was not even the weirdest thing about this election.

"I think a humiliating and devastating loss puts you right where you need to be to launch a presidential campaign. Don't you think?" Glenn asked.

"Let me ask Beto O'Rourke. Hold on one second. I'll get him on the phone," Stu joked. "I mean, really, what is the constituency for a Liz Cheney presidency? She basically runs the state of Wyoming, and her family runs the state of Wyoming, and she got 29% of the vote there. So what is the constituency, other than the possibility of running as an independent candidate to shave votes from Donald Trump?"

"She's going to be brave and she's going to take that stage with Donald Trump ... She's going to be the one that takes him on and she will last all of about 45 seconds," Glenn said. "He will pummel her."

'Bye bye Liz Cheney': Donald Trump Jr. EASILY triggers liberals​​​​​​ with just one silly tweet

Donald Trump Jr. celebrated Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney's humiliating defeat in her state's GOP primary by releasing a 30-second video that was clearly intended to trigger the Trump-hating liberals on Twitter — and, naturally, it worked like a charm.

Rep. Cheney was defeated by Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman on Tuesday in the Republican primary for Wyoming's at-large congressional district.

Don Jr. took to Twitter to poke fun at Cheney's loss by posting a video montage of his father, former President Donald Trump, dancing with the caption, "Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore."

Hoo boy, talk about kicking the hornets' nest. The reactions on Twitter were so predictably full of vulgarity, name-calling, and low-brow insults that we can't share most of them here, but you've seen it all before.

Don Jr. has had an interesting couple of days on Twitter. Just yesterday he was actually vindicated by fact-checkers (yes, you read that right) who called BS on a widely circulated but completely fabricated tweet that made it look like he was bashing his father's supporters.

Don Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to weigh in on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid and explain why he believes the Justice Department targeted his father and pedaled lies to justify it. He also gave his advice on what conservatives can do to peacefully and lawfully stand up against a system that's ignoring their rights.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer personal info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"

A video has been making the rounds on social media that appears to show Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) telling Fox News host Sean Hannity and Lara Trump that the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was “not a raid.”

The video, which has been viewed more than 3.5 million times as of this writing, was captioned "Ron DeSantis went on Hannity and things got SPICY." The (very badly) altered video inserted footage of DeSantis at a 2020 press conference to look like he was correcting Hannity's use of the word "raid" to describe the recent Mar-a-Lago debacle.

“It’s not a raid. With all due respect. It was not a raid. They were serving valid process in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the United States and the state of Florida. They did it with integrity. They did it with honor. And to say it’s a raid is disinformation," DeSantis says in the video, kicking off the alleged "spicy" back and forth.

Both Reuters and AP News have issued fact-checks to debunk the doctored video, because apparently people on Twitter can't decern the extremally, blatantly, painfully obvious alterations for themselves.

Did people really not notice that Hannity is stuck in a weird time loop that makes him appear to be suffering some sort of seizure? Or the way Lara's face is frozen mid-blink? Or how about DeSantis' beyond-even-the-world's-worst-mouth-breather default position when Hannity is speaking? And if none of that clued folks in, surely the crazy chyron would do the trick, right?

Maybe not.

DeSantis' then-press secretary Christina Pushaw (who just resigned from her job as press secretary to work as the rapid response director for the governor's re-election campaign) had to step in to set the record straight.

Gov. DeSantis joined Glenn Beck on the most recent "Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about the unrelenting leftist and media attacks accusing him of tyranny, and scaremongering about how he'll "kill" our "democracy."

DeSantis is unafraid to call out their lies and keep Florida on the front lines for freedom. When Disney tried to protest his Parental Rights in Education law, he stood his ground — and won. He did the same with CRT and woke prosecutors.

Now gearing up to take on ESG.

In the video clip below, he details what his state has already done, what the legislature is preparing to do, and why he's calling on other states to join in his anti-ESG battle: "If we pooled our voting rights together, we would be able to counteract what California and New York and a lot of these other pension plans are doing."
