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.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
