Glenn and the census

GLENN: Now, we've also been talking about the census and I just said to my wife about 20 minutes ago, honey, look out for the census and you say we just we just got the note?

TANIA: Yeah. I just got the letter saying we're going to get it in a week.

GLENN: Read it, read it.

TANIA: It says, Dear Resident.

GLENN: That's us. Oh, my gosh. How do they know our name? They're spying on us.

TANIA: I know. About one week from now you will receive a 2010 census form in the mail.

GLENN: Hang on just a second, honey. What should we do to celebrate? What would you like to do? Do you want to have a

PAT: Do you guys have the census tree up yet?

GLENN: We don't have to census tree up. We've been selected to help people in our neighborhood get their fair share.

TANIA: Oh, yeah

PAT: And the people in your neighborhood, they don't have their fair share.

GLENN: They don't. They have somebody else's fair share.

PAT: They've got my fair share.

GLENN: So, what else does it say?

TANIA: What else?

GLENN: Yeah.

TANIA: It just says, when you receive your form, fill it identity and mail it in promptly.

GLENN: Should we go get get running shoes?

TANIA: We can also go to the website, if we need help completing our 2010 census.

GLENN: If we need help?

TANIA: Yes.

GLENN: That's great. Now, is that going to help us get our share of government funds for highways, schools, and

TANIA: It says that our response is very important.

GLENN: Oh. Is this signed by Robert Groves?

TANIA: Yeah.

GLENN: Because I met Robert.

TANIA: He did?

GLENN: He told me

TANIA: That our response is so incredibly important?

GLENN: No. He told me, Mr. Beck, you will be answering all of the questions. I said, wow. Are you a psychic? Because if you're not a psychic, that sounds like a threat, Robert M groves. So, we're just going through the questions that I'm willing to should we fill it out on the air, honey? Maybe we save money on the stamp. Maybe our postman not work so we could just fill it out ant air.

TANIA: Why not. I'm sure someone down there will be listening.

GLENN: You think?

TANIA: Someone.

GLENN: So, maybe it's Robert M. Groves, director U.S. Census Bureau. By the way, I just would like to put this out: If you're from ACORN and you're working for the census, I don't recommend you come knocking on my door.

STU: Does ACORN even exist anymore? I thought they were disbanded.

GLENN: Get off my land comes to mind. All right. So, let's go through the do you want to help us on what we're going to answer? Are you willing to answer all of them, honey?

TANIA: I would like to see the form.

GLENN: Okay. We have the questions here.

TANIA: Oh, you have the questions.

STU: Let's just sow what Tania would answer, because I would like to know. Tania

GLENN: She's a get along person.

STU: Stop trying to influence. Thank you. How many people

PAT: Remember your Constitutional right!

STU: Stop it!

PAT: They can only count us.

STU: All right. How many people were living or staying in this house, mobile home, or apartment on April 1st, 2010. You don't have to answer. Just tell me will you answer or not.

TANIA: How many people are in my house?

STU: Yeah. How many people are living there as of April 1st, 2010.



Glenn Beck is seen here on the GlennBeck.TV, an exclusive feature of the Glenn Beck Insider Extreme. Learn more...

TANIA: Yeah, I can tell them that.

STU: Okay. Were there any additional people staying there on April 1st, 2010, that you did not include in question 1?

TANIA: What?

STU: I know. It's a Bizarre government thing, but I won't try and justify it. I won't give you any just will you answer that? It's been asked since 1880.

TANIA: I think that's ridiculous.

GLENN: Thank you! Thank you!

TANIA: Why do you have the first one?

STU: Right. It's essentially the same question.

TANIA: No. I'm not answering it.

GLENN: Thank you. She's already answered the first question.

STU: Can I give her my spiel on why

GLENN: No. Next question.

STU: No. 3, is this house, mobile home, or apartment owned with a mortgage, owned without mortgage, or rented or occupied without rent?

TANIA: I don't think that's an answer I would give.

GLENN: Thank you. I love you. Man, I love you!

TANIA: I'm going to answer how many people live in the house. They don't need to know if I own it or rent it or whatever.

PAT: This is good.

GLENN: Ladies and gentlemen, you are now seeing why I married the woman of my dreams. She's as hot as she is right!

TANIA: Don't you forget it.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. We have to take a quick break and then we'll fill out the well, we'll see what we're going to fill out on the rest of the census form. So far they've got one question and, that is, how many people live in the house. I gave you the number. More next.

(Out at 10:30 a.m.)

GLENN: Welcome to the broadcast in the first day of broadcasts for the Insider Extreme, a six camera shoot. It's like a television show on the radio every day. You can see it online at glennbeck.com. You can you can, you know, access it at any time or you can watch it live every day. Plus, there's a fourth hour to the broadcast need immediately following the three hours, there is a fourth hour you will see only on the Insider Extreme.

PAT: Better than the first three?

STU: That's definitely true.

GLENN: Let me go

STU: It's in Constitution.

GLENN: Let me go to Tania again, my Lovell and talented wife. We're filling out the census form that I was told by Robert M. Groves that I was getting, which is weird because it's supposed to be random.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And that I would be filling out all of the questions. So far he's wrong. My wife and I have decided we will fill out one so far, but Stu is asking the questions. .

TANIA: May I ask a question? How many more questions are there?

STU: Is it too much time for you?

PAT: I've got to take cares of the kids. .

TANIA: I'm just sitting here at home twiddling my thumbs.

GLENN: I know, honey. Do you have a ribbon in your hair yet?

TANIA: Yes, I do.

GLENN: Looking sweet.

STU: Oh. Is General Hospital about on?

TANIA: No, no. That's later on this afternoon.

GLENN: There's only six more, Tania. .

TANIA: Six?

STU: Are you ready? .

TANIA: Yeah.

STU: What is your telephone number? .

TANIA: Not your business

STU: Okay. What is your name? .

TANIA: Not your business

STU: Wow. You've been with him too long.

PAT: That's good, Tania.

STU: What is your sex? .

TANIA: Not your business.

GLENN: Good. I would like to know that one. .

TANIA: Well, if you tonight know that one, we're in trouble.

STU: What is .

TANIA: I've got other things to worry about besides the census

STU: What is your date of birth? .

TANIA: Not your

PAT: Not your

GLENN: Hey, don't influence her.

STU: Tania, are you of Spanish, Latino, or Spanish origin? .

TANIA: Again

GLENN: What the hell does that have to do with anything? .

TANIA: Exactly.

STU: What is your case?

TANIA: Again

STU: You guys answered that one?

GLENN: Daytona 500, that's how I'm answering it.

PAT: Human, I'm in the human race.

Stu: Just to be clear, you know your little T shirt that you wear that says Since 1791? Since 1790 they've been asking that question.

PAT: Your race?

STU: Yes.

PAT: No, they haven't

STU: Since 1790, 1790. That predates the Bill of Rights. Correct? 1790 they've been asking that one.

PAT: I'm not going to do it

STU: The founders found that one to be unconstitutional, an though they were all alive then.

GLENN: You can throw me in jail for not answering that questions and I would love to see the jury that would say he didn't answer the race question. He deserves five years in prison.

STU: They were all there when this was's occurring.

GLENN: I don't care!

Stu: Why would

GLENN: Because they didn't have an out of control government at the time.

STU: But that's a different argument than it's Constitutional or not.

GLENN: Yeah. You're right. You're right. And when you produce Thomas Jefferson's census form that he filled out

STU: He was there.

GLENN: When you produce the show that he answered that question, you let me know.

STU: Okay. Tania, last question for you and I was hoping that you would be the sensible voice. Instead, you're just yelling. You're all yelling at me.

TANIA: I'm not yelling as you.

STU: No. You're always sweet about it. Does person 1 sometimes live or stay somewhere else?

TANIA: No. I mean, that's

STU: You don't consider that part of the first question, essentially? Like, for example, the one the example that's been thrown around the office is Joe Kerry who has about 14 different homes that he stays at. He's one that works here on the staff. He lives far away. He's all over the place.

TANIA: Everyone stays somewhere else at some point, when they go on vacation.

STU: So you're saying you don't know how to answer the question, not that it's than inappropriate question? O.

TANIA: No. I think it is inappropriate. The first question is all they need to know.

PAT: You got your answer, Stu.

GLENN: Then he gets more than his fair share because he pays more than fair I know how much Joe Kerry makes because I pay him. He's paying more than his fair share. He could have more than his fair share back. How is that one?

STU: I don't know if that's a universal adoption of the way these things are supposed to work, but that's fine.

GLENN: There you go. Hey, honey?

TANIA: Yes.

GLENN: I love you.

TANIA: I love you, too.

GLENN: See you, sweetheart.

TANIA: All right. Bye.

GLENN: Bye.


 

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

Watch a clip from the full interview with Matthew Yglesias below:

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
