Glenn Beck: The Tide Is Turning





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Scott Brown pulled out the victory Tuesday night, 52-47 percent — pretty close to the numbers we showed you yesterday.

Republicans everywhere are giddy and there's already talk about Brown running for president. All right, look: Let's settle down here. Can we have people actually accomplish something first, please? Remember, this guy thought posing nude was a good idea. I know it was 1982 but I can't recall an era where male nudity was considered a good thing.

And did you see Brown's acceptance speech? It was great until he started talking about some sort of dowry for his daughters:

SEN.-ELECT SCOTT BROWN, R-MASS.: I want Ayla and Arianna for their help as well. And just, just in case anyone who's watching across the country, yes, they're both available. No, no, no. No. Only kidding, only kidding.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Dads of America: Would you even jokingly say that? On national TV? No. But then again you wouldn't drop trou for Cosmo, either.

Man, I hate to be the official conservative buzzkill today. I am happy, really I am. This is good news and here's why.

Scott Brown didn't win because he drives a pickup truck around town like regular folk do. Martha Coakley didn't lose because of her elitist gaffes. They helped, but the real reason he won is because people are waking up. They know that our current system is unsustainable. Even "Saturday Night Live" is doing jokes mocking the affordability of government health care:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FRED ARMISEN AS PRESIDENT OBAMA: But our health care reform plan, we're confident, is going to lead to enormous savings.

TRANSLATOR: How exactly is extending health care coverage to 30 million people going to save you money?

ARMISEN: I don't know.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

This election made me think of a quote from Thomas Jefferson: 'It is to me a new and consolatory proof that wherever the people are well-informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights."

You have noticed. You are well-informed. That gives me hope, because the tide is turning

But remember what I told you Tuesday: This isn't about ordinary Democrats and Republicans. This is about progressives. This election is like the shot that will be heard around the world. Losing Ted Kennedy's seat to a Republican is going to trigger a revolution or a civil war in the Democratic Party: progressives vs. Democrats. It's Blue vs. Grey. And this war is going to be dangerous. The most dangerous time in any regime is when it's on the verge of collapse, especially a regime with revolutionaries in it.

The Democratic Party is collapsing and it's chock full of revolutionaries.

This president has surrounded himself with people who believe that "power comes from the barrel of a gun," just like Chairman Mao believed. People like Van Jones, a radical communist and 9/11 Truther, who wanted to help "oppressed peoples" with "direct militant action." When Van Jones was finally forced to resign over his radical views, progressives didn't applaud the move, they couldn't believe Obama didn't stick up for Jones. They thought Obama was a sellout.

There are two kinds of radicals: The Cloward and Piven type, who said there can be a peaceful takeover through financial collapse and a reset of the system; and the other kind, the violent radicals like Bill Ayers, who bombed the Pentagon and told The New York Times: ''I don't regret setting bombs... I feel we didn't do enough.''

Or Paul Watson, whale activist, who said: "There's nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history."

Or SEIU President Andy Stern, leading White House visitor, who notes that "workers of the world unite," is not just a slogan anymore.

Or Ron Bloom who kind of agrees with Mao that "political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun."

Or Anita Dunn, who said one of her "favorite political philosophers" is Mao Zedong.

Or Jeremiah Wright, who said "God bless, America? No, no, no, God D—-, America."

So he's surrounded by radicals, here's why republic in danger and why the president is in danger. First, the republic:

Remember the Tree of Revolution?

In the beginning there Marxist students who wanted real revolution. Then Cloward and Piven came along and said, no, we'll infiltrate and collapse system. Folks like Dale and Wade Rathke follow in their footsteps.

But William Ayers and Jeff Jones — the co-founders of the Weather Underground — disagree. They've never denied that violence is a bad thing. And if they believe that Obama has gone soft and won't collapse the system, they will and they'll do it their way.

Now, here's why the president is in trouble:

Van Jones was a 9/11 Truther. He thought government was capable of murdering thousands of U.S. citizens. Put yourself in the mindset of a 9/11 Truther. You have access to the president of the United States. You think he's now joined the cabal that is capable of murdering people and he promised you a revolution.

Do you think it's safe to have that individual around the president? Are you comfortable with that?

Let me show you something that was just said on left-wing radio — thanks to Newsbusters.org for posting this from Mike Malloy: "You crazy (expletive), you right-wingers. Do you not understand that the people you hold up as heroes bombed your (expletive) country? Do you not understand that Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly are as complicit of the September 11, 2001 terror attack as any one of those (expletive) 15 who came from Saudi Arabia? Don't you get that?"

(By the way, why did Congress hold a hearing on the White House gatecrashers today? The one where the Salahis pleaded the Fifth. To bury it on a busy news day?)

And the president is running out of friends. He's alienated himself from almost everyone. He didn't reach out to anyone on the right. He said, "I welcome your ideas" and after they gave him ideas he shut them out of the process. So the right is out. In the midst of his radical agenda, regular Democrats were left in the dust.

Creigh Deeds was tossed under the bus after running for governor of Virginia

Joe Lieberman dared to oppose health care and all of a sudden he's the worst person ever.

Code Pink thinks he's a sellout too; Wednesday they were protesting Obama on his policies.

The radical progressives are starting to turn. The Progressive Change Campaign committee is pressuring Russ Feingold to make sure Obama "fulfills" his public option promise and progressive groups are actually running attack ads against him:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TEXT: On health care he promised a public option

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Any plan I sign must include an insurance exchange, including a public option to increase competition and keep insurance companies honest.

TEXT: He told us mandates were not the answer

OBAMA: If a mandate was the solution, we could try that to solve homelessness by mandating everyone to buy a house. The reason they don't have the house is they don't have the money.

TEXT: Voters know the difference. Public Option: 59% support, Mandates: 33% support

(END VIDEO CLIP)

It's getting ugly, but the president isn't laying down. He's going back to the red meat. He's re-declared war on Fox News. He's changing up the State of the Union Address to add attacks on Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, because you must feed the progressive beast meat it likes to chew on.

Barney Frank revealed he's trying to change the system:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS.: Look, we have a serious constitutional problem. There has been a de facto amendment to the U.S. Constitution in an anti-small-D democratic direction for that 60-vote majority. It is outrageous and if you look, by the way, it tends to be, in many cases, the senators from those smaller states that aggregate to get up to be the 40, out in the mountain West for example. But, the answer is yes, it is time to shut it down. It is anti-Democratic, I think we should now be crusading for Democratic senators — maybe some Republicans will join us — to amend the rules of the Senate. God didn't create the filibuster."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

This war isn't about just Democrats. It is the battle for the survival of the republic and I hope you are ready to fight and the win in Massachusetts indicates you are, because you have declared not just a typical political war. You've declared war on revolutionaries.

The "fight" to you means educating people. It means mobilizing people to go vote. But "fight" to a progressive? All bets are off. They will cheat, lie, steal even blow things up if it helps them win. The ends, as Saul Alinsky points out, justifies the means.

Over the holiday I started writing my next book, a follow up to "Common Sense." It's on Thomas Payne's "Crisis." Payne's original "Common Sense" was to convince people that they needed the Declaration of Independence. Believe it or not, signing that paper was the easy part. Just like you will learn, the easy part was to go vote in Massachusetts on Tuesday. Once you've declared war —- once you've declared yourself independent — the system reacts.

Six months after the Declaration of Independence was signed, things were going horribly for Washington. That's when Thomas Payne wrote: "These are the times that try men's souls."

Are you willing to sacrifice your life, your fortune and your sacred honor or will you sit idly by as things get tougher? I told you Tuesday that when the going gets tough, the foot will go on the accelerator. Can't win the argument? Do the next best thing: Shut down the opposing voice.

Watch this — paid for with your tax dollars on PBS:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BOB MCCHESNEY, CO-AUTHOR OF 'THE DEATH AND LIFE OF AMERICAN JOURNALISM': We went back and looked at the size of the public subsidy that the U.S. government had for journalism in the first half of the 19th Century and if we had the same percentage of GDP today dedicated to a journalism subsidy as the did in the United States routinely in the first 75 years of our country's history, it would be roughly $30 billion.

This is sort of the number a free society pays to have credible journalism and that strikes us as a pretty sane number.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Our Founders were willing to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Are we at least willing to sacrifice our fortune and find our honor to defend freedom of speech?

These radical revolutionaries believe the Constitution is a flawed document and, just like the Founders fought to establish the Constitution, these radicals will fight to change the Constitution. And they'll become much more dangerous as they realize that time is running out.

Progressives have been patient for decades, creeping their way into the system. And this is it: They are going for the final death blow to the Constitution.

But you are changing the world. You delayed health care. You have delayed and perhaps crushed cap-and-tax. You have taken away the supermajority. You have provided Hope.

Remember this poster? Change never comes from the top. That hope? That's phony. Americans don't pin their hopes on one guy. They do in dictatorships, but not here. That's why the change Barack Obama promised hasn't connected with America. His change came from a small group of people: the uber-elitist, radical, progressive left.

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

RELATED: Day of reckoning? Inspector General's report is here.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

RELATED: Americans Aren't Having Kids – and Some Say Climate Change Is a Big Reason Why

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
