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!

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
