Glenn Beck: Rep. Kennedy goes berzerk



Video: Rep. Kennedy goes berserk

GLENN: Let us begin with a Kennedy, Patrick Kennedy from Rhode Island on the floor of the House of Representatives talking about, where's the press on the war?

KENNEDY: If anybody wants to know where citizen is, citizen is that there's one, two press people in this gallery. We're talking about Eric Massa 24/7 on the TV, we're talking about war and peace, $3 billion, a thousand lives and no press! The press of the United States is not covering the most significant issue of national importance and that's the laying of lives down in the nation for the service of our country is despicable the national press corps right now.

GLENN: Patrick Kennedy.

PAT: His voice changed, he was so excited.

GLENN: Where's the press? Where's the press at? That's a good question, isn't it, Patrick? Where is the press? Where is the press? The press was all over the war. All over the war when it was George W. Bush, but now... nothing. Where is the press? Interesting. Maybe the press is doing all their homework on healthcare. Maybe they're just trying to expose all of the nonsense, all of the craft, all of the corruption, all the bribery in healthcare. No, no, they're not there, either. Where's the press! Play it again, please.

KENNEDY: If anybody wants to know where citizenism, citizenism is that there's one, two press people in this gallery. We're talking about Eric Massa 24/7 on the TV, we're talking about war and peace, $3 billion, a thousand lives and no press? The press of the United States is not covering the most significant issue of national importance and that's the laying of lives down in the nation for the service of our country. It's despicable the national press corps right now.

PAT: Do you think he was drunk there?

GLENN: Jeez.

PAT: Seriously.

GLENN: No, that's other Kennedys. I think one of them has to be sober assaults. I think that may have been

PAT: To be the designated driver?

GLENN: Yeah, that may have been his moment to be sober. No, he was sober. He was just inflamed that there was no press there!

Now, the president actually spoke on this issue, did he not?

STU: On Iraq? Well, sort of. In because he actually, as crazy as he sounds there, as you point out, he has a good point. They really cared about it a lot when Bush was in office. But doesn't seem like the press or the president seem to think of it as a particularly high priority. In 2010

GLENN: What was hang on just a second. And I know this, it may seem like a rhetorical question, but it's not. What is the difference between the president and the press? Okay, I was kidding. It is a rhetorical question. There is no difference.

STU: In 2010 President Obama has mentioned the Iraq war just three times during formal speeches: Twice in a single sentence during back to back events in early February at the DNC and once in his state of the union address.

PAT: Where's the president! Where's the president, the Iraq war, people are dying! Where's the president?

GLENN: There's only one president!

PAT: And he's not here!

GLENN: He's not even talking about it! It's the greatest, most important thing of all time!

PAT: The president's unraveling about healthcare every day, 24/7!

GLENN: Can I tell you something? It's really, really, really interesting that when those members of the press, coincidentally I believe all of them worked at Fox, were saying where is the president on the war, he can't seem to make a decision, and we went on and on and on about it for four months, Patrick Kennedy wasn't even around talking about where's the president!

STU: It goes on here. The White House press corps hasn't asked the president about the Iraq war in months. The president was last asked about the conflict on December 7 during an Oval Office press

GLENN: That's the date that will live in infamy.

STU: Right, with the Turkish prime minister. But the question came from a Turkish reporter after an associated press reporter asked about the economy.

GLENN: There's only one Turkish reporter here!

STU: In fact, the last time a White House reporter asked about the Iraq war was June 26th, when NPR reporter asked an Iraq related question during a joint news conference with Obama and Merkel, according to records kept by CBS radio. That's pretty, pretty amazing. I mean

GLENN: That's going on a year?

STU: Yeah. Remember this was supposed to be the main issue of the campaign when the campaign was revving up.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Of course it is. Until he completely went back on everything he promised! Where is a single campaign promise this man said he would keep! In the gallery there's no promises being kept! I mean

STU: How is your voice? Is it okay?

GLENN: It's okay.

STU: It made it through that?

GLENN: I can't do much more of Mr. Kennedy, but

STU: Pat can.

PAT: I could. I could scream all day like Pat Kennedy if I wanted to! I can still talk on the radio tomorrow!

STU: (Laughing). That's significant, though. It's a wartime president.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And since June we haven't heard any press member ask him about it.

GLENN: No. Where's Cindy Sheehan! Why hasn't she camped out in front of the president's vacation property?

PAT: She's still at Crawford. I just read a story a couple of weeks ago. She was at Crawford.

STU: Oh, really? Because I thought she did

PAT: She was still protesting at Bush's house.

STU: Did she follow through the 2008 election?

GLENN: Does she understand how this system works?

PAT: Apparently not. Apparently not.

STU: Because at one point Bush was actually, he had two terms and then he ended that two terms and then President Obama took over.

PAT: I heard something about that.

STU: Yeah, yeah. So she should actually I thought I heard when he went on vacation, she actually did protesting where Obama went on vacation, too.

PAT: Somebody's got to get her a radio where she's more consistent. She should always be camped outside, I don't know, his Chicago residence maybe?

STU: Is it possible she just really likes Crawford at this point? She's been there a lot. It's a rural area.

GLENN: I think the people of Texas have embraced Cindy Sheehan.

STU: I think so.

GLENN: No, seriously, she blends.

STU: She's like the Stonehenge of Crawford now. Everyone drives by to look at her.

PAT: We don't know why it's there, but look. There's the Cindy Sheehan.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
