Glenn Beck: Spanked, then punched

GLENN: From the New York Times Sunday, ex offenders and the vote. Millions of ex offenders who have been released from prison are denied the right to vote. That undercuts the effort to reintegrate former prisoners into mainstream society, and it goes against one of democracy's most fundamental principles, that governments should rule with the consent of the governed. Congress held hearings last week on the Democracy Restoration Act that would allow released ex felons to vote in federal elections. I will give you all of the information here and put it into context, this and illegal immigration coming up.

Let me, let me warn you now in no uncertain terms: You must always be a people of peace. Always. Unless your life is being threatened, in no uncertain terms, you must always be a people of peace. We are entering a very dangerous phase and I believe it's intended to be that. I want to ask you this question, and I want you to, I want you to really think of what I'm about to tell you. How many times have you thought about overthrowing the government of the United States? Trying to think... never, for me.

PAT: Just am adding it up here. Just, I'm... none.

GLENN: How many friends do you have that have ever sat around and thought about those things? How many times have you ever spent any time thinking about, if I just throw a bomb, maybe I can get a revolution started. Have you ever thought of that? Do you know anyone who has ever thought of that? The answer is, for me, and I believe I would have said a year ago the entire audience, the entire population of America I would have said none, zero. Last night I was standing at the chalkboard and I have been trying to figure a couple of things out. Barack Obama said a year ago do you have the quote where he's talking about, you can't rule with 51 votes on healthcare, where you can't govern? He said, you can't govern with just 51 votes on healthcare. You can't pass this and then govern, can't happen, we can't do it that way. So why did he do that? In fact, it wasn't even that solid. Why would you do that? The next question I asked myself is why would you go right directly to immigration reform? Something that was so divisive that it almost tore the republic apart. Why would you do that?



Glenn Beck's American Revival


Glenn Beck's American Revival is a daylong event where you can find information, inspiration, and the preparation to help turn this country around...


 - Tickets now available!

Last night I was standing in front of a chalkboard and I looked at the I had some quotes ready from the revolutionaries that are here surrounding the president now and the revolutionaries from the first American Revolution. Notice I said first American Revolution because I think the second American Revolution is being played out right now. They are calling it the fundamental transformation. And I'm looking at these and I start I'm in the commercial break and I'm looking at the founders and I think to myself, "We are not these people. Where is George Washington, where is Ben Franklin, where is Thomas Jefferson, where are these great, great thinkers? Where are they? We're not these people. Where is Samuel Adams? We have to have Samuel Adams. We must be a people that understand faith in God. Where are they?" And I'm thinking, "If there is a revolutionary if there's a revolution now, it ends the way the French Revolution did, which is Napoleon, a dictator, bloodshed, awful, awful things in a dictator." And I was about to go on the air. It was about 30 seconds before I went on the air. And then I looked at the others, the new fundamental transformation revolution. And I that you had, oh, my gosh, these people, these people have thought of revolution. I've never thought of revolution. These people have. Where were they in the 1960s? In the 1960s they were in SDS. Andy Stern, Medina, the new guy on immigration, member of SDS. You have Van Jones, a guy who was calling for a violent revolution. I mean, he was part of what was the name of that communist group that he was people believe he may have started, may have written a communist book, but there's no evidence of it, but his fingerprints are all over it. These are people that have recently. William Ayers. William Ayers on 9/11 said "I don't think we did enough when we were throwing bombs." These are people that were there.

Now, you know all this, but have you put this piece together? Because this is what happened to me last night before I went on the air: If you were in the 1960s and you were a radical and you believed in a Marxist revolution, you were crushed. And who crushed you? Well, the good God fearing grandparents that we all had that were going to church every Sunday, they all stood up, "These hippies, these people." Remember that: These hippies. Who crushed you? LBJ and Nixon. The man. Not the hippies. The man. And as you threw bombs, you realized the one thing that was on the chalkboard last night, that we are a religious and moral people. How did you pass healthcare? You passed it through your heart. They got it done because it's through your heart. And when your heart wasn't enough, they went for corruption, any means possible. But that's how they have done this. You hate people who are sick. You don't care about little children." They are about to do this with immigration: "You don't care about them because you hate them because they're different than you. You're a xenophobe, you don't want any foreigners in." You go for their heart. Now, if I was a radical in the 1960s and I say, how did we lose? We lost because we were in power. Arriving now: Cloward and Piven. What you need to do is collapse it from the inside. You need to get as many people from the welfare rolls onto it and collapse. But remember that there needs to be a framework that it collapses into. What that means is you must have power. It's not enough to be out on the streets. You must be Richard Nixon. You must have radicals at the top. Now, if I again am sitting there and I'm listening to that and I think, you know what really, what really killed us here was Americans don't like bomb throwers. They don't like hippies.

Let me give you now the quote from Van Jones: I am willing to drop the radical pose for the radical ends. People don't like hippies. People don't like Marxists or communists. They know that. They also know they don't like bomb throwers. They also know America is a country of forgiveness. "I threw a bomb in the past. Okay, that was my youth. I was crazy. It was an indiscretion. Stop talking about the past. Don't you have forgiveness? Your Christian charity, you don't forgive and forget?"

So now they're in power, the people who have plotted a revolution. They were plotting it in the Sixties. Some of them still talk about throwing bombs and everything else, doing whatever they have then what happens? They what? What? What after this? If you're going to take over, if you're going to end it, if you want to have the true fundamental transformation of America, what you do is you have to reverse the roles. You have to put yourself in the role of LBJ, the man, and you need to put the man, you need to put the good Christian people in your role from the 1960s, the ones with the signs and the banners in the streets. Because you can manipulate them like crazy because you know what the man did to you that pissed you off! You know what the man was doing to you that made you say, "I gotta get a bomb!" And you also know that doesn't work. So if they are now at the top, why do you think they are needling and poking and prodding all the time? Why do you think they slap you down on healthcare and just as you're getting up, they punch you in the face with immigration? Why do you think they are being so divisive? If you are a loving parent and you discipline your child, the first thing you do is hug them so you are not estranged from that child, so your child doesn't say, "My daddy doesn't love me." But what have they done? They gave us a spanking on healthcare and then they punched us in the face. They want you to say "Daddy doesn't love me." They need you to be estranged from them. They need you to pick up a gun or a bomb. They need you to break the law. They need you to become them in the 1960s. They need you to do it. Because they know America does not support those kinds of people and they have become legitimate. They have dropped the radical pose for the radical ends, and they are making you the radical. Do not play into their game. They hold all of the cards. Do not do anything but get on your knees. As we turn to him, he will turn to us. This is his land. Let it play out his way. Do not pick up anything... except your soul. They need you to become radical.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.
