Glenn Beck: State of the Stupid, er, Union

GLENN: Man, I whoa. I have never been so outraged by a president. I don't think I've I've never seen anything like it last I don't even know where to begin. Should we begin with we're going to drill for oil offshore and we're going to have nuclear power plants? Whoa, what? Coupled with a comprehensive cap and trade program. Oh, I see, I see. Cap and trade, let's see. If we had a cap and trade program, how much would it cost then for you to drill for oil in Alaska? It wouldn't be worth it. This guy, I said to you last week, we are going to have evidence on whether everybody says, "Oh, no, he's just a politician, he's just like all the other politicians we've always had, they are all like this." And I've been saying for how long, no, they're not. No, they are not. This guy is in a different category. He is a revolutionary. Look at the revolutionaries that he has appointed. Let's see what I can share here. The people that he has appointed, they are the good ones. Try the revolutionaries that he's tried to appoint and didn't make it through the screening process. This guy is an amazing revolutionary. Last week I told you if he is a politician, he will then triangulate because they are hemorrhaging, hemorrhaging. They'll triangulate. If he people say, oh, fundamentally transform America, no, he doesn't, he just wants to stop all the rhetoric and all the infighting and everything, work together, hope and change. If that was true, he'd triangulate. If he wants to fundamentally transform America and he is being led by the nose by revolutionaries, there's no way he's going to do anything but follow the words and the advice of Saul Alinsky and that is step on the accelerator. If this speech wasn't a step on the accelerator, I don't know what was. The arrogance from the moment this guy walked in, the arrogance. There's no humility there. The arrogance of the lies that he told last night, I've never you know, every president, everybody, you can take it and you can say, okay, well, you know, let's spin this, let's spin that. No, no, no. I don't appoint lobbyists? We sat in my office today and named 12 in his administration! How does he expect to get away with this? With an exception of, he knows the media won't corner him. The media is complicit. The media is damn near treasonous.

When the president last night went in, I'm going to show you there's two things that should speak volumes to you, and it's amazing to me that the media is spinning one of them as, did you see what Alito did? He talked back to the president. I want to play this whole section here for you. I want you to hear what he did last night.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To close that credibility gap, we have to take action on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, ban the outside influence of lobbyists, to do our

GLENN: Stop. Is he not the guy who has Andy Stern, is he not the guy who says, hey, I want to talk about immigration, I talk to SEIU; I want to talk about healthcare, I talk to SEIU; your agenda is my agenda. He wants to stop outside influence? Oh, my gosh.

Then you have, he says that we have to restore a credibility gap. He's lying in his advice on how to repair a credibility gap because too many people think that Washington are liars, cheats, thieves. So let me lie to you and tell you what I do, which he doesn't on lobbyists. I'm sorry, I got sidetracked. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Work openly, to give our people the government they deserve.

GLENN: Stop. Stop.

PAT: Openly.

GLENN: He wants to work openly. How about honoring your promise of C Span hearings? He wants to work openly. Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's what I came to Washington to do. That's why for the first time in history my administration posts on our White House visitors online.

GLENN: Stop. Stop! Because it was demanded through a Freedom of Information Act. How long did Fox try to get the Freedom of Information Act to get the White House visitors? "We post online." Months after, and not everybody. Believe me, we filed for the Freedom of Information Act. If you are a schlub that still thinks, we're America, we'll weather anything, don't worry about it, and you are just watching him, this is a brilliant speech. But I truly believe those days are over in America. What these politicians don't know is you are dealing with a different group of voters. You are dealing with people who are not playing politics. They don't care anymore. They are seeing the end of their children's financial future and they want the truth. You cannot push them like this. You cannot do it. He's raised the stakes beyond your wildest imagination. I think he's doing it intentionally as well. Arrogance. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've excluded lobbyists from policy making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions.

PAT: Listen to the reaction there. Because they know.

GLENN: I've never heard anything like it.

PAT: He's got lobbyists from Raytheon in his cabinet for electric utility companies.

GLENN: Goldman Sachs!

PAT: Goldman Sachs. Eric Holder himself was a lobbyist.

GLENN: I mean, it is Timothy Geithner's assistant is a lobbyist of Goldman Sachs. I mean, I'm going to show you the influence of big banks tonight on television. I mean, it's and listen. I have never heard. I'm not a guy who said Joe Wilson, I understand his frustration, but I don't agree with, you're in for decorum. This is the president of the United States. This is the state of the union. You know, when he says "Liar" or "You lie," I wasn't for that. But when you hear what happened last night and the groans, I got news for ya. His lies were breathtaking.

PAT: I don't think they could stifle them. I really don't.

GLENN: I don't think so. If I were in there, I would have done the same thing: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: I was at home doing it.

GLENN: I was, too. How could you possibly say that? I mean, and he expects to get away with it.

PAT: I woke up the kids yelling at this guy.

GLENN: The bigger the lie, the easier it is to swallow.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: You what?

PAT: I woke up the kids yelling at this guy. So when they were groaning I'm thinking, you know

GLENN: The restraint?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Red State put together a list of lobbyists after he said this line: William Lynn, Eric Holder, Tom Vilsack, William Corr, David Hayes, Mark Patterson, Ron Klain, Mona Sutphen, Melody Barnes, Celia Muñoz, Patrick Gaspard and Michael Strautmanis?

PAT: Those are just top jobs.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That doesn't even scratch the surface.

GLENN: That's not, okay, I got one in there, I don't know how he slipped in there. There's no attempt to stop these guys!

PAT: No.

GLENN: None, none. I mean, how long? We covered those for a week when he broke that promise and he started breaking it and it was like break, break, break, break, break, break, break. And we were like, where did that promise go? And nobody held him to it.

STU: And this goes back to the point you make over and over again about arrogance. He's got to know everyone knows this.

GLENN: He does.

STU: We've talked about it a million times.

GLENN: This is beyond arrogance. This is beyond arrogance. This also includes, the people are stupid; they'll never know. I'll just say whatever I want because it sounds good. I'll say it well. I'll do a good speech. I look presidential. They're stupid.

STU: You know who else was like this was Jon Edwards. I mean, this is stereotypical, him out there talking about his family, how much he loves his cancerous

GLENN: They are not afraid. This guy is more afraid of the left than he is of you. This is what our founders talked about. When there is fear of the government, there is tyranny. But when the government fears the people, there is freedom. They do not fear you.


 

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
