Glenn Beck: America Capsizing Guam?



Congressman Hank Johnson worries that 8,000 US troops could cause Guam to tip over...

GLENN: That's an interesting now, now let's go to somebody really stupid. And I know the media immediately says, "Oh, they are going to talk about Sarah Palin because she's just the dumbest politician ever to walk God's green Earth which God, of course, had nothing to do with because God doesn't exist." I'm just thinking like the media. Unfortunately for the media, this is not Sarah Palin. This instead is audio of Congressman

PAT: Hank Johnson.

GLENN: Hank Johnson. Where is Hank from Illinois?

PAT: You know

GLENN: Look up Congressman Hank Johnson. I don't know where Hank is from, but he's a light bulb.

STU: Fourth district of Georgia.

PAT: Georgia.

GLENN: Of Georgia, okay. So here's Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson speaking at a press conference.

PAT: Looks to be like some sort of hearing involving a general who's sending 8,000 keep in mind they are trying to send 8,000 Marines to Guam to shore things up there.

GLENN: All right. And here's what happens.

PAT: Here's what happens.

VOICE: I don't have the exact dimensions but to your point, Guam is a small island.

VOICE: Very small island and about 24 miles, if I recall, long. So 24 miles long, about seven miles wide at the least widest place on the island and about 20 about 12 miles wide on the widest part of the island, and

GLENN: Okay, stop for just a second.

PAT: It's small.

GLENN: He's trying to make a point that this is a small island.

PAT: Small island.

GLENN: 8,000 Marines to Guam.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And I think what the congressman is trying to get to here is it's a small island.

PAT: Small.

GLENN: Now, maybe he's worried about overcrowding. No. Listen.

CONGRESSMAN HANK JOHNSON: Square miles, that is, do you happen to know?

VOICE: I don't have that figure with me, sir. I can certainly supply it to you if you'd like.

CONGRESSMAN HANK JOHNSON: Yeah, my fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

VOICE: We don't anticipate that. The Guam population I think currently about 175,000 and again with 8,000 Marines and their families, that's an addition of about 25,000 more into the population.

PAT: We don't, we don't anticipate it capsizing.

GLENN: I'm so would you play that? We have to take a break. Can we come back and play the part where he says, "I'm worried that it might tip over and capsize."

PAT: Capsize. Well, how many times have we seen that happen on small islands when you get too many people? I mean

GLENN: Never.

PAT: How many times? You've never seen that?

GLENN: How is this not a lead story everywhere? These are the people that we expected to fix healthcare.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He's worried about and listen to the deference. I couldn't be a general. Listen to the deference. The general should have said

PAT: Very respectful.

GLENN: "What the hell is wrong with you?" "No, we don't anticipate that as a problem."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: You want to know why our government is broken? Because you have to say to a dope like that, "No, we haven't really... no, we're not anticipating that as being a real problem." Instead of saying, "Can we get somebody in here to answer to ask real questions here? Because..."

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Well, you know, there was a long time in our history that, you know, people believed the Earth was flat. Do we know that islands aren't floating and they capsize because of overpopulation? Has anyone ever confirm that?

GLENN: No, we haven't.

STU: It could happen.

GLENN: You are right. You're right.

STU: And this guy's just trying to be open minded scientifically.

GLENN: That's exactly, that's exactly right.

PAT: Well, Guam is small.

STU: It's small.

PAT: It's small.

STU: He illustrated that in his comments.

PAT: Like 24 miles wide.

GLENN: Hank, I want you to I want you seriously I want to thank you for thinking of the things that no one else has ever thought of.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, what is it, what is it that Jon Stewart said of me, that I'm finally a thinking man, the guy who's thinking what was it, was the quote on one of our books?

STU: Finally a guy who says what people who aren't thinking are thinking.

GLENN: Yeah. That's weird because I've never thought that an island would capsize if you if we were going to send 8,000 Marines. How did this guy get into office?

PAT: That's a really good question.

STU: He was running on the floating island platform.

GLENN: Can you find out about

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Can you find out a little something about him? Can you what do you have on him? I've never even heard of this guy.

STU: He does have a response to this, by the way.

GLENN: Oh, good.

STU: This has gone viral and it's unbelievable that something like this would go viral when he was so obviously joking. Listen to the humor.

PAT: Oh, he was joking?

STU: Listen to the humor in there.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding me!

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding. Hang on, hang on, hang on.

STU: He was just so smart and funny!

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.
