Glenn Beck: The Prison Plan



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: This week we introduced you to the apparent founder of the healthcare reform strategy. He is a convicted felon. His name is Robert Creamer. You have already met Creamer's wife, a congresswoman from Illinois. You know her, you love her for this super, super classic. Do we have it? Sorry, they are doing even more construction in this room and so everything is down and not working.

PAT: Healthcare reform is great. You want the government to do it because it's better than other opportunities to get healthcare.

GLENN: I don't believe that's the actual recording. Let's try

PAT: I love socialism.

SCHAKOWSKY: argued against the public health insurance option, saying it wouldn't let private insurance compete, that a public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single payer. My single payer friends, he was right.

GLENN: Listen to that.

SCHAKOWSKY: My single payer friends, he was right. The man was right.

GLENN: There it is. Listen to those useful idiots. "Yeah! Let's stop American innovation on healthcare! Yeah!" Wait until I show you some new video that we have tonight. See if I can I haven't heard it only, I've only seen it. I'd like to hear it before we play it because maybe we can play it on the radio today. Sometimes you just have to see things, but wait until you see what else they have on healthcare. So that's Creamer's wife, congresswoman. Now Creamer himself, he swindled nine financial institutions out of at least $2.3 million. In 2006 he was convicted of bank fraud. Remember that's the height of everybody in the financial institution what we're trying to correct right now is fraud in banks, ethics in banks, financial reform. But this is way back in 2006. So he was convicted of bank fraud, sentenced to nearly a year and a half in federal prison and house arrest. This is about half the sentence that anybody else gets. If I just went out and did bank fraud, you would get double that sentence usually. His wife, the congresswoman, Schakowsky said, quote, in my heart I know these mistakes do not define or diminish this good man or the good work that he's done over the last 40 years or that he will do in the future. If stealing $2.3 million doesn't diminish someone, what does? Apparently President Obama didn't feel he was diminished, either, and invited the convicted felon to the first state dinner of his presidency. You know the one where everybody was, "Hey, how did these, how did these reality stars get in here past the secret service." The bigger question is, is our president in trouble? Because somebody's not doing their job. Because now we have a convicted felon with the president. Obama is apparently using the work of this good man, the work that this good man did in prison. He's, by the way, not a repentant man. He stole $2.3 million. Bank fraud. But he's never said that he was sorry for it. In fact, he doesn't refer to his prison time for it in 2006. He doesn't refer to it as prison time. He said it was a sabbatical. As we pointed out on Fox the other night, the administration is using all of the points that this man developed while in prison, all of them. Also this week, ACORN's comprehensive no holds barred internal investigation showed they did nothing wrong by helping the couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute to set up a whorehouse and import 13 illegal aliens to use as sex slaves. I don't know if I wasn't aware that Helen Keller was still alive and available for investigations but apparently she is because I don't understand how Helen Keller would have been able to find and see the evidence that this is, something's wrong.

They brought in Scott Harshbarger who, I mean, he couldn't have been expected to see or hear much evil. He was appointed by an ACORN advisory panel that included Kathleen Kennedy Townsend who used to work with the Baltimore top prosecutor, the one looking into the two journalists who shot the ACORN video rather than ACORN employees. John Podesta, the head of the radical leftwing Center For American Progress. There are other leftist members on this board that are just he went so far as to add that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis had nothing whatsoever to do with the scandal.

Okay. Here's their chief investigator: Bertha Lewis had nothing to do with the scandal since she has absolutely, quoting, nothing to do with ACORN housing. That is fascinating that this independent investigator, hired by ACORN would say that she had nothing to do with ACORN housing because here's Bertha Lewis when the scandal was breaking.

LEWIS: Which is why as the CEO I took swift and immediate action, terminated those employees because regardless as to what we know or edited doctored tapes where you don't see everything where finally people were thrown out in dozens of our offices, it is inexcusable.

GLENN: I mean, do we need more? "That is why as the CEO I fired people." How do you do that? That's like the president of McDonald's walking into CVS pharmacy and saying, "This is out of control; I have to fire you people." Do you think the CVS pharmacists leave? "He doesn't work for the pharmacy. I..."

Also this week as the climate change sky was falling all around them, as we are now finding that this is completely corrupt, the warmist cults, the cult of warmists, their spokesboy Robert Gibbs said this:

GIBBS: I think everybody is clear on science. I think scientists are clear on the science. I think many on Capitol Hill are clear on the science. I think that this notion that there's some debate, minus Lester, on the science is kind of silly.

GLENN: Wow, silly. Since when is any important debate in this country silly? Do you have the Harry Reid quote where he talked about slavery? First let's take Robert Gibbs. It's silly. This debate unfortunately involves trillions of dollars. To be exact, $145 trillion. Our economic future, the way of life on this planet, will be forever altered. But it's silly to debate it? Look at what he's dismissing here. Data that supposedly made the case that the Earth had a fever and immediate action is necessary was deleted, manipulated, falsified. And we're not supposed to pay any attention to that? A convicted felon wrote the playbook for the biggest government takeover in American history and no one in the media is even talking about that?

Healthcare, bought and sold by special interests. It will forever it may mean the difference between life and death. It may mean rationing of healthcare. There's probably no other bigger question to ask on healthcare or that's happening now, well, except for maybe the deficit. But that's related to healthcare. How are you going to pay for it so our children have some freedom at the end. There's no more important debate happening right now in shall with a wash than the healthcare debate because it literally is about life and death. But listen to Harry Reid.

REID: Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans, and come up with is this: Slow down. Stop everything. Let's start over.

GLENN: Stop. Are you kidding me? Slow down, all they can say is slow down. Well, is there any reason for anyone to say slow down in this nation? Have we had a problem with people going too fast in this nation in the last nine months? Can anybody think of anything? In the last 12 months when Bush was still in and they rushed TARP, then rushed the stimulus? Now rush healthcare. Slow down. And they're bullying us. If you say it's $145 trillion and there seems to be something going on, well, you're a Holocaust denier. You're not only a Holocaust denier, you're a Holocaust denier that is holding up some sign with Hitler on it calling Nancy Pelosi Hitler! Well, why would you have a sign that had Hitler on it if you are a Holocaust denier? Why would you do that?

So you're a Holocaust denier that just wants to call everybody Hitler, and you're a conspiracy theorist. Even though we have now memos that show there was a conspiracy, scientists were conspiring to hide and destroy the truth. Oh, I know it's, wow, that's a far cry. It's a conspiracy to say that somebody wants universal healthcare but they had no intention, no intention of doing anything but getting a single payer program, one way or another.

Play the congresswoman's comments again. This is a conversation she had with somebody who said, you know, if you do this bill, what's going to happen? Listen.

SCHAKOWSKY: And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who then argued against the public health insurance option saying it wouldn't let private insurance compete, that a public option will put the private insurance compete out of business. And ladies and gentlemen, he was right. My single payer friends, he was right!

GLENN: He was right! He was right! How is that a conspiracy? It's fact.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:

Our police officers are called racists, killers, and murderers even if all the evidence suggests the opposite is true. With the bodycam footage and information we have so far, it looks like the Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant "is a hero," Glenn Beck said.

On the radio program, Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the fatal shooting of the 16-year-old who appeared to be about to stab another girl when the officer shot her. They agreed that the officer arrived at an extremely chaotic scene, and within seconds was able to identify the threat and react. But that hasn't prevented the Left from demonizing him — like LeBron James tweeting the officer's photo and saying "you're next."

Glenn went on to say it's time for the Fraternal Order of Police to stand with its officers and for Columbus police temporarily to walk from the job to show the Left and the media unity for the officer currently under investigation.

"I want you to either call or maybe you tweet today, 'Police we support you. I stand with the police. #Istandwiththepolice.' Our police are under attack," Glenn stated.

"And let me tell you something, police officers, if you are a racist and you're out shooting people, I will be the first to come and say, 'put that guy in prison' ... but the vast majority of police officers are good and competent," he continued. "And they're doing their best. And they're risking their lives for us. I stand with the police!"

"Make sure you let your local police officers know that," Glenn added. "And FOP, I'm telling you, you have to do a strike in some of these cities, and Columbus would be a really good place to do it. ... You have got to send a message to the media and everyone else. One day without police in one of these cities and you see what happens. You don't want the police? You want to 'reimagine' the police? Go ahead! Until the White House stops this nonsense, walk."

A shocking report from Yahoo News recently exposed a covert operation to track Americans' social media posts for "inflammatory" content — carried out by the U.S. Postal Service.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere broke down what we know about the USPS' surveillance effort, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (or iCOP), and the role it plays in providing other federal agencies with information on "right-wing leaning" accounts, among other data, and asked: Who exactly authorized the U.S. Postal Service to monitor the internet?

"It was found out yesterday and released in a story by Yahoo News, the United States Postal Service is apparently tracking social media posts as part of a clandestine program, searching for inflammatory messages," Glenn began. "Wait, the Postal Service has a clandestine operation going on?"

Glenn read highlights from the Yahoo report, noting that iCOP has quietly had analysts combing through various social media sites, particularly those considered "right-wing leaning," looking for "inflammatory" postings and then sharing information with other government agencies.

"The Postal Service is now spying on you. But no big deal, right?" Glenn added sarcastically.
