Glenn Beck: Tom Hanks racism flow chart



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast. Learn more...

GLENN: All right. So, Pat wants to wreck Tom Hanks even more and --

PAT: He's doing it himself.

GLENN: Here it is.

VOICE: -- to connect that today, do you support President Obama's decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan, to take down Al Qaeda and the fact that he has not ended a war in Iraq yet?

PAT: Remember, his initial statement on MSNBC was that World War II was racist and terrorist and that sounds just like what's going on today. Right? Do you remember that?

HANKS: I'm not so sure that -- I'm not -- even though we do have people that are trying to kill each other and shooting guns at each other, the connection there is not as clear-cut and I think it would be foolish to assume that it is. What's going on in Iraq is completely singular to Iraq, and what is going on in Afghanistan is completely singular to Afghanistan. I've made other --

GLENN: Hold on. So -- just a second. So, the American people who are stupid and racist understand the difference between an Afghani and an Iraqi race-wise?

PAT: When there is a progressive in the office of the President, yes. Yes, but only --

GLENN: Okay. This is a very -- could we get a flowchart on this one?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I think I need a Tom Hanks racism flowchart. When you are attacked by the empire of Japan --

PAT: Right.

GLENN: -- you go right next -- the next box is racist war. When you are attacked by people in Afghanistan, not the country but the people of Afghanistan and not all of the people, people who are being protected by the government of Afghanistan, you can go directly to -- yes. That's a singular event?

STU: Singular event. We've got to do that.

GLENN: But only if there is a side box. It's a "yes" or "no" box. Is it a progressive President? I shouldn't say that. Is there a -- is it a -- is it a nonprogressive President, a progressive President, or a really progressive?

PAT: It's a really progressive President. So then --

GLENN: Then it's okay.

PAT: So, then it's okay.

GLENN: It's okay. All right. And then if you have a guy who's threatening -- has already been proven to threaten his neighbors, says he has biological weapons, blah, blah, blah, is doing that, it's so good that he is -- nobody knows if it's even true or not, even in his own country --

PAT: Then the guy who attacked him is an evil racist --

GLENN: Racist.

PAT: -- hatemonger, warmonger.

GLENN: Got it.

PAT: But the guy who follows up on that war and continues it, that's a single event.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stu.

STU: I've got to give props to a caller who just called in -- I don't know how they remembered this, but going back to The Real America, your first bestseller.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

STU: It's sad because it's like crossing a line that we hoped we would never cross which was this is -- you actually have a subsection in the book called Tom Hanks and Jimmy Stewart, The Good Celebrities.

PAT: Oh, no.

STU: Tom Hanks is the ultimate celebrity in the real America.

PAT: You are screwing Tom? Tom, what are you doing? You say.

STU: "Tom, I don't know what you think about politics. I don't know who you voted for. I don't know what your stance is on the War on Terror, and I'm happy about that." And that's what it goes into here is Tom Hanks, how he never blabs his mouth and runs it like an idiot.

PAT: Tom, don't you know me? We're working this for you. We're -- they're in their pitching for you, Tom.

STU: You've got to ask if he's working for pot.

PAT: Are you working for pot or not? You say.

STU: Isn't that sad, though?

Glenn: Wow.

PAT: He's really -- I mean, this is bad for him because, yeah, everybody loves Tom Hanks and it has -- you know, in part it's -- he's obviously got great roles and we like his personality and he shows up on all these talk shows and he seems like a normal guy and then he opens his mouth and starts this stuff and it's like, Oh, geez. And the other day, when he was on MSNBC, he was all about politics. They asked him about Obama and what kind of job he's doing and he's, Oh, he's doing a fantastic job and he's up against a Congress -- a do-nothing Congress and I don't know how he's doing so much. And then, when he's pressed on being political now, completely back tracks.

HANKS: -- movie about Afghanistan that is now an almost "Gone With the Wind," Charlie Wilson's War in which the Soviets were there and the Pakistanis and the Afghanis were funding a completely different sort of thing. To ask me, I'm an actor. Do I support what's going on? I'm not a politician and I'm not a statistician and I'm not a legislator. I'm a guy who looks at what's going on and understands that there is nothing but struggle and inside that struggle are the proclivities of human kind.

PAT: Proclivities.

HANKS: Like Ernie Pyle himself said, Anybody who likes going to war is a damn fool.

GLENN: Did he say Gomer Pyle?

PAT: Ernie.

GLENN: Oh, okay. I thought it was Gomer Pyle.

HANKS: Anybody who wants to walk away from a war unfinished is a damn fool.

GLENN: Stop for a second. So, I don't understand what you're saying because we're in -- what is that?

STU: He's saying -- I think he's saying it was bad when Bush was in but now we've got --

PAT: We've got to finish the job.

GLENN: Let me just say this. I think Gomer Pyle said, Tom Hanks, you're a damn fool. I just --

PAT: I just love how when he's pressed about Obama's war, oh, boy, does he backtrack. Oh, I can't say anything bad about the chosen one, my progressive overlord, Barack Obama. No, no, no, no, no. That's a separate thing. I'm just an actor. I don't -- even though I just pontificated on all kinds of lefty politics two days ago on MSNBC and I compared World War II to today and how racist it was and what I'm saying makes absolutely zero sense now, but I can't say a negative word about my progressive overlord, Barack Obama, Barack Obama.

GLENN: You better not -- (Laughter.)

Voice: That's right. That's right, Tom.

GLENN: We should put this on the microphone now of every speech that Barack Obama gives and just say, Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States. (Music playing.) I'm just here to help heal people with healthcare, and I know you mere mortals can't get the job done. That's why I'll use my power to get it done. (Music playing.) What I've said in the past, I've been clear. Read it in Genesis. I think I was very, very clear.

PAT: And that was you?

Glenn: That was me.

PAT: That was you?

Glenn: That was me. It was Barack Obama, yeah. Didn't you read the part about the jawbone up the ass? That was just a -- so, we have that and, you know, the healthcare thing happened in Genesis. Deuteronomy, I was talking about cap and trade.

PAT: Really? I didn't know that.

GLENN: Yeah. And the reconciliation I think was in Jeremiah or somewhere in that area. I can't remember for sure.

STU: Card check, is that in --

GLENN: Card check? Yeah. That's in Paul.

STU: Wow. Card check is in Paul.

PAT: Yeah. Where he says blessed are the unions? Is that where --

GLENN: Well, translation, you know, I said a lot of things and they translated it, you know, in other ways and I'm just -- I've got to run. I've got another planet to heal. So, thank you and God bless -- well, I bless America.

PAT: Wait a minute. There are other planets with other life on it?

GLENN: I don't know. I'm not Barack Obama.

PAT: Did we just find a -- we've got a big story here.

GLENN: Well, if the overlord says, we will all watch TV and say, Yes, President Obama. I understand now. Thank you, oh blessed one. I'm wondering if, you know -- I was on the air with somebody today and they're, you know, like, So, you're not a truther? No, no, I'm not.

PAT: Oh, geez.

GLENN: You don't know there's a lot of stuff in his life early on where he -- I said, yeah. No. I'm concentrating on the things that are taking away our rights right now. But then I've been thinking about it now that the overlord did stop by, we should check because he may have been born someplace and carried in on the wings of -- what are those birds that carried Kim Jong-Il in after his birth?

PAT: Yeah. He might have been born in Bethlehem.

GLENN: Yeah. I don't know.

STU: I don't think Kim Jong-Il was born in Bethlehem.

PAT: No, but Barack may have been. And if he was born in Bethlehem, that's fine.

GLENN: May I say the occupied territories around --

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: -- Bethlehem.

STU: That's right. Yeah.

GLENN: So -- and, you know, and his father, all he wanted to do was just live there in peace away from all them damn Jews.

Oops. Did I say too much? Oops. I didn't -- wait a minute. No. Just think about me as the baby Jesus and I love the Jews, too. I do. Look.

PAT: I mean, geez.

GLENN: I'm sorry. I just read -- you know, I haven't been -- I haven't been paying attention to all of the news and I just read today what is going on in Israel and I just can't believe how we are selling Israel out.

PAT: Especially over Jerusalem. I mean, this is a very --

GLENN: This is a happy day.

PAT: The capital city?

GLENN: This is a happy day for Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright is like, Yeah, I've been telling him. He's finally taking on his Zionist masters and telling them now it is. There's a lot of people saying that today, I'll bet, a lot of people. A lot of them friends of Jeremiah Wright, I'm guessing, but don't worry about that. He's just a -- oh, he's just a crazy old man.

PAT: Like an uncle, really.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

'Like Hunter Biden without the hookers': Why did Nancy Pelosi's son REALLY join Taiwan trip?

Nearly everyone, from President Joe Biden to the head of the United Nations, agreed that California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was dangerous. Even former President Barack Obama's ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Pelosi's actions made Biden look even weaker than he already does — and that's really saying something.

So, why did Pelosi risk global war and go against her own party? If you listen to Politco, she's got a "decades-long" beef with China and just wanted to show support for the Asian nation, but the timing of her trip suggests there’s likely more to the story.

On "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposed the Pelosi family's (including her son) lucrative connections to Taiwanese companies and revealed how certain business deals directly related to their trip to Taiwan.

"Nancy Pelosi and her husband and their son ... they love money as a family. By the way, did you know her son went on that trip and was doing business with, oh, wow, some of the people she was meeting with? Did you know that?" Glenn asked. "Sounds a little like Hunter Biden without the hookers and the crack."

Glenn pointed out that when Pelosi was elected to Congress, "somewhere in the late 1700s," her net worth was about $3 million, but by 2008 her family's wealth had ballooned to $31 million. By the end of the Obama term, her wealth had doubled to $61 million, and just two years later it shot up to $114 million.

"Wow! That is not bad beans for a meager public servant. They [Pelosi and her husband] must be master investors and it just took getting elected to public office to truly unlock that secret," Glenn quipped. "Or they were privy to some sort of information that the rest of us don't have access to, kinda like the sale of $5 million in computer chip stock before Congress voted on a recent semiconductor bill," he continued.

"But, surely, Taiwan has nothing to do with their own little private cash machine, right? ... I'm sure it had nothing to do with her husband's stock trading of companies that make computer chips. And it has nothing to do with, at the same time, Nancy is working on a semiconductor bill. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that the largest semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, is right there in Taiwan, right? I mean, surely, with all of this heat, Nancy Pelosi would be smart enough not to be seen anywhere near Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers," Glenn said.

"I'm not saying this might double the Pelosis' millions again, but I'm not not saying that either, you know?" he added.



On the radio program, Glenn continued to break down the hushed business deals between the Pelosi family and Taiwanese companies and revealed how it all directly relates to their not-at-all suspicious trip to the Asian nation.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.
