Glenn Beck: The Chicago way is now the American way


Update: Direct from Glenn's Twitter;


Tomorrow at 5p ET: Congressman Massa for the full hour. I just spoke with him off air. All Americans need To hear him. Exclusive tomorrow on Fox News.


GLENN: Okay. I want to play some audio here. We have Congressman Massa from New York. He had some interesting things to say. He's a guy who was voting he voted against cap and trade and he's a Democrat, and he voted, was going to go vote against healthcare. He's resigned, but now he's coming out and saying, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. This is a giant game. And I want you to, I want you to hear in Pat's audio vault what he said this weekend.

MASSA: Congressman Neil Abercrombie who is running for the governorship of Hawaii and with the tragic and very sad passing of my personal good friend Jack Murtha, mine is now the deciding vote on the healthcare bill, and this administration and this House leadership have said quote/unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this healthcare bill. And now they've gotten rid of me and it will pass. Here I read, House majority leader Steny Hoyer said Wednesday that he was told the week of February 8th by a staff member in Massa's office about allegations of misconduct. Hoyer directed Massa to report the allegations to the House ethics committee within 48 hours. Steny Hoyer has never said a single word to me at all, ever, not once. Not a word. This is a lie. It's a blatant false statement. But when I voted against the cap and trade bill, the phone rang and it was the chief of staff to the president of the United States of America, Rahm Emanuel. And he started swearing at me in terms and words that I hadn't heard since that crossing the lines ceremony on the USS New Jersey in 1983. And I gave it right back to him. And in terms and words that I know are physically impossible. I told him to do things that I know the human anatomy cannot do. There's no doubt in my mind. It got quiet. And I said, Rahm, let's have a conversation and you pretend that you are the acting, you are the chief of staff to the president of the United States and I'm a sitting member of congress. And he said, there's no reason for you to swear at me. I said, you are the one that lit on me first and I'm going to give as good as I get. So if Rahm Emanuel wants to come after me, maybe he ought to hold himself to the same standards I'm holding myself to and resign. I've had union leaders tell me point blank we are not going to contribute to your campaign unless you vote for this healthcare bill. Is that or is that not a bribe?

GLENN: It is.

VOICE: At the heart of everything we face in this country today, at the heart of the destruction of our democracy, at the heart of our inability to solve our problems, at the heart of the inability for us to actually pass to the next generation of Americans something greater than we received from our parents is the incredible corruption of money in politics today.

GLENN: Stop for a second. Who the hell is this guy?

PAT: This is incredible.

GLENN: Who is this guy?

PAT: This is exactly

GLENN: He's a friend of John Murtha's?

PAT: Hard to believe.

GLENN: Really hard to believe.

PAT: This is exactly what we've been asking for, where is this person. And it turns out to be a Democrat. That's fine. That's great. We're just looking for someone with integrity. Jeez, amazing.

GLENN: I mean, we've got to find out about this guy. I mean, maybe just because healthcare is not going far enough.

STU: Well, it could be. I don't know. I think well, if he voted against cap and trade, though, my guess is it's probably more

GLENN: Sounds like he's more Blue Dog Democrat?

STU: I don't know much about him.

PAT: I don't, either.

STU: The whole thing was supposedly these allegations now about ethics. I'm sure they are going to say that's the cause of this outburst.

GLENN: Excuse me. We're seeing it with Paterson. If they want you out, they will destroy you. I mean, why do you think that there are two biographies coming out about me this summer?

STU: Because you are that awesome.

PAT: You are so interesting.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

STU: Because your life is that fascinating.

GLENN: Because they, that's the only that's the only thing they have is literally the politics of destruction. Destroy them. Destroy them. This guy, Paterson's being destroyed. I mean, Paterson, he's a joke. He's a joke. But please. The system is not working when he says, "I'm going to run." "No, you're not." "Yes, I am." "No, you're not." "Then we'll destroy you." And they are! They've done everything to destroy the man. These guys are thugs. I just cannot believe what this country is putting up with, what we're sitting around for! We are sitting around and we are watching the systematic destruction of everything we hold dear by thugs!

You know, if members of congress would come forward and they would say, help! The American people will stand by you! No matter what the New York Times and Bill Maher and everybody else print, everything else that the left says, we are not antigovernment. We are anticorrupt government. We are antibig government. We're not antigovernment. We're looking for good guys! Come out! We will help you! Continue to play this guy.

VOICE: It makes me weep when I realize our nation is being destroyed from within. But I will not go quietly into the evening. I will not be ashamed of my actions other than the fact that I used inappropriate verbal, V E R B A L language. And I was set up for this from the very, very beginning. If you think that somehow they didn't come after me to get rid of me because my vote is a deciding vote in the healthcare bill, then ladies and gentlemen, you live today in a world that is so innocent as not to understand what's going on in Washington, D.C. The leadership of the Democratic Party have become exactly what they said they were running against. They have become exactly what we all ran against. You cannot effectively govern this country without the consent of the governed. The entire nation has said let's rewrite the healthcare bill, let's find what we can agree upon. No, no, no, no. We're going to ram this down the throats of the American people and anyone who stands in the way of doing that is going to be smeared, and they are going to be kicked out of congress. And we're going to have people like Steny Hoyer lying in the press.

So here's the reality. At this point nobody knows. Nobody understands you can't sift yourself through all the various details because of things like the Nebraska compromise, because of things like $100 million to build a hospital in Connecticut, because of one little line item stuck in. The American people have lost faith in this piece of legislation and if we pass this bill using reconciliation, it will tear this country to pieces.

GLENN: Who is this guy? Stop! Stop. I want to change the show. This needs to be our lead tonight at 5:00 and get this guy on. I don't have, I don't have guests on. We just don't and we certainly don't lead with a guest. This guy is the guy we've been looking for!

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Here's a Democrat!

STU: He sounds like it. Again these guys

PAT: He does.

GLENN: With what I know right now, with what I know, which is very little, only I have to take him at his word on what he's saying here. But Stu, does this not sound all exactly with what we've been saying was happening? All of it.

STU: I mean, he's, you know, alerting everyone that the corruption that we've been talking about is definitely going on.

GLENN: Everything. Everything. He's talking about the union corruption, he's talking about the hostile takeover of congress, he's talking about the thuggery, he's talking about the spending into oblivion. He's talking about all of it. And they know. They know in Washington. This is a good sign.

PAT: When we say where are the Republicans, this is what I'm this is what we mean!

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Where are they doing this? This should be my pants and Eric Cantor and Ted Poe and John Culberson and all the rest, Dana Rohrabacher.

GLENN: How many times have I said get up and walk out!

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: Get up and walk out! And hold a press conference and say it is a, it is a den of vipers in there! And the whole place has to be fumigated. And I'm not going to do my work in that building anymore; I'm going back to my constituents. I will phone my votes in. I'll fly in if I have to be there. But it doesn't matter if I'm there anymore. I'm going back home to be with real people because this is corrupt! Where are those people? This may be one of them. This may be one of them.

Tiffany, can you come into Stu's studio for a second? Tiffany is our executive producer of the TV show. Do you know anything about this guy? Massa well, she was in the hallway. Do you even know what I'm talking about? Do you know anything about Massa at all? Congressman? Okay, so you don't know if this I've never even heard of this guy.

PAT: Is he a Blue Dog Democrat? Do you know?

TIFFANY: I do not know.

STU: It looks like that's the case.

GLENN: Where is he from?

PAT: New York.

GLENN: It's a big state.

PAT: Oh. Somewhere in

GLENN: New York?

PAT: New York.

GLENN: Got to be upstate New York some place. Find out where he's from.

STU: Corning, New York?

GLENN: Corning?

STU: 29th congressional district.

GLENN: Is there any of our affiliates, if the you are in his district, would you please call and let us know about this guy. I don't follow the individuals in politics. That's for other people to do. Let's see if we can get this guy. I know he's going to every show's going to try to get him, that's fine. If that's we'll promote whatever show gets him, but this is the guy. This is the guy. And tell them I'm not going to spend I won't spend three minutes on this. If he'll talk, I'll let this guy talk. This is good news!

STU: This is good, from just kind of scanning quick bios of him, apparently military guy, former Republican, left the party. Was not a supporter of the Iraq war apparently or at least part of it and is now a Democrat. Won a very close election this past election, 51% of the vote basically.

GLENN: Love it. Love it. Love it, love it, love it. Oh, this is good news. We'll go into more on what he had to say here in just a second.

 

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

RELATED: Here's why Israel used lethal force during mass protests in Gaza yesterday

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
