Lieberman update

(Selling Out Your Country update.)

Glenn: This is not a surprise, not a surprise.

Pat: No. He does it every time.

Stu: Almost every time.

Glenn: He's always done it once and I gave him the benefit of the doubt earlier today, that Joe Lieberman would who stand

Stu: He didn't last a day!

Pat: He didn't even last

Stu: He didn't last the morning!

Pat: He's done. (Mumbling.)

Stu: It's that quick!

Glenn: He's there.

Stu: He's going to vote.

Glenn: He's going to vote for it.

Pat: Here's the beauty. He didn't even change his mind. He was completely consistent the entire time.

Stu: Completely consistent.

Pat: As he always is.

Glenn: Play a little bit of the statement. Here's his statement.

Voice: in Washington, where Senator Joe Lieberman is talking about health care. Let's listen in.

Lieberman: The so called public option, government run insurance program is out and the Medicare buy in, which I thought would jeopardize Medicare, cost taxpayers billions of dollars, increase our deficit, is out, and there's no other chance to bring things like that in, then I'm I'm going to be in a position where I can say I'm getting to a position where I can say where I wanted to say all along, that I'm ready to vote for health care reform. My whole point has been here that the President laid out a couple of big goals for this process. Costs are down for individuals, families, businesses, our government, our economy of health care and, secondly, bring a lot of people in who can't afford health insurance now. The basic core bill does that. I think some of the other things were going to add to our debt, increase taxes.

Glenn: Okay. Hang on just a second. So, how are we getting it? How are we getting it? What are we getting? What are we getting?

Pat: You've got me.

Glenn: What is in the bill, then?

Pat: You've got me. No public option, no Medicare buy in, just perfection and awesomeness.

Glenn: So, what is it? What is it that doesn't cost anything yet, covers everyone, and reduces, reduces Medicare?

Pat: And reduces cost.

Stu: Because he was worried about if it went through Medicare, it would ruin Medicare and cost too much, but now that it's not called Medicare, it not going to cost anything. It's going to save us money.

Pat: Now it's free.

Stu: Now it's free. It's negative money.

Pat: Somebody is paying us money. I don't know who, but somebody's paying us money to vote for this thing.

Glenn: Was it the pressure? Was it the pressure? I mean, I know what I know what it was. I mean, this is where Joe Lieberman and I had a falling out and Joe Lieberman and I are friends and we respected each other, but I I really believe that Joe Lieberman left his honor at the door at the Monica Lewinsky story. Joe and I were friends. I mean, it was not like we were hanging out where each other, you know, taking walks on Saturday, but we were friendly and respected each other. Joe Lieberman helped me get into Yale. And I said to Joe Lieberman during the Monica Lewinsky story, Joe, very few people have the right message at the right time. Character does matter. You are the linchpin here. If you do the right thing, the rest will follow you. And I gave him Profiles of Courage and he pushed it back on the table at me. And we were off the air. This was a personal note. And he said, I've read it. And I said, I want you to read it one more time. And I shoved it back to him, and he walked out and didn't take Profiles of Courage with him. And we all know what he did at that time. He gave a tough speech, but he caved. And I'm convinced you'll be the first Jewish vice president nominee. You, sir, will be the vice presidential nominee under Al Gore. I'm convinced that's the deal that happened. I have no evidence of that. I just feel it. The only time Joe Lieberman he has found himself in critical positions many times. One time he has stood and he has stood with our troops and he's paid a great price, but that's the one time. Every other time Joe Lieberman folds like a house of cards. He folds. I gave him the benefit of doubt on this one, but I shouldn't have. Here he is again. He folds. I asked Senator Lieberman, Where in the Constitution do you find this, sir? Where? Answer the question. Don't tell me about you have Constitutional scholars. Don't tell me about, well, how this has to be done or how this is deficit neutral. Answer the question. Where in the Constitution do you find this, sir? If you cannot, then do your damn job to protect the Constitution. These people in Washington are shaping the Constitution instead of allowing the Constitution to shape the country. It's backwards and wrong.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
