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.


 

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.
