Glenn the seditionist

GLENN: Let me go to Joe Klein from Time magazine. He said this with Chris Matthews on NBC.

KLEIN: And she said, un American. Now, she said it was just his policies, not him, but those words are license words. They're permission words, you know?

O'DONNELL: Yeah.

PARKER: They're...(unintelligible).

KLEIN: You know, I did I did a little bit of research just before the show, it's no this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition, which is "conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state." And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck, and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right next right up close to being seditious.

MATTHEWS: OK.

HEILEMANN: Well, and this is and, you know, Joe's right, and I I'll name another person. You know, name Rush Limbaugh, you know, who uses this phrase constantly, talks about the Obama administration as a regime.

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop. How many times did Time magazine call the Bush administration a regime?

PAT: I think it was 16 in all. They called the first time they called the Bush administration a regime was one month into his administration. One month.

GLENN: Time magazine?

PAT: Time magazine, we did that chart.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

PAT: You know, because Chris Matthews himself has said it, the New York Times has said it and I think Time said it the most. I think it was 16 times, his own publication.

GLENN: All right. So this is ridiculous. Now for someone to speak out is sedition. I would challenge you to find that in the words of our founders. In fact, I believe it's in the Declaration of Independence that when a people find the government to be oppressive, it is our duty, and I'm not even going here. It's our duty to shake it off and to reconstitute a new government.

PAT: This is something that Judge Napolitano talked about at the American Revival a lot is the Sedition Act of 1798 with John Adams. It's so dangerous because they have this threat, we thought, and I think it was legitimate from the French that they were going to overthrow our government. They got nervous about that and so they passed this alien and sedition act.

GLENN: And it's exactly where Thomas Jefferson and names I mean, and John Adams went awry. John Adams Thomas Jefferson, he doesn't even have president of the United States on his tombstone. He didn't want to be the president.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He did it because of the sedition act that said you can't do this, you cannot do this. I mean, that's what the king that's why when the Declaration of Independence said, they are all going to die.

PAT: A lot of people think Adams was kind of pushed into this by a lot of his advisors and the people of his administration but the fact is he signed it into law and so for, what, four years until Jefferson was able to overturn it, it was really a blight in American history. And now they are trying to you know, they continually talk about the other thing Clinton was talking about was returning to the free speech of our founders? Well

GLENN: The free speech of our founders?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Then what is the Internet that they want to regulate?

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: What is the Internet? The Internet is the modern day printing press. It is what Thomas Paine would be using today. I mean, and did you notice that Bill Clinton and, see, this is why this sedition act and everything else is a ruse. Why would you go out you are not going to go out and you are going to take really? You are going to take out Fox News, without an event, you are going to take out Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, you are going to do that? Really? Are you? No. They are not the target is not me or Rush or Fox. It's not. The target is you. If you notice, if you play back what the president said, the former president said on Friday, what he talked about was talk radio and the Internet. He talked about control of the Internet. Now, is it, is it just happenstance that we're setting up for an emergency and control of the Internet when Net neutrality has just been deemed unconstitutional by the courts and Obama says we'll do it one way or another, we'll do it through the FCC, we'll just make the Internet a utility. And then a week later Bill Clinton, speaking at the Center For American Progress, the Soros group, which is a big supporter of Internet neutrality, now all of a sudden he comes out and says this?

By the way, a month ago Bill Clinton came out and said that the tea partiers were the same kind of movement as the Contract For America in the Revolution of 1994, the Republican revolution. Well, which is it now, Bill, and what changed your mind? What makes the tea party the Republican Revolution in 1994 and now today makes it Timothy McVeigh? Did you have a conversation with someone? Did it happen to be at the Center For American Progress? What changed your mind on that, Mr. Clinton? Could you help us?

The target is not me. It's not Rush. It is you. You can silence our voices but as long as you can speak out. And look what they're doing now. We told you on Friday, there was a court case where they say you have no reason to expect privacy on your cellphone, in your Internet, Internet mail. They can, without a warrant they can go and check your e mail. That's what they are fighting for now in the court. Now federal security workers can snoop through more than your, you know, just your luggage. Now if you are deemed near a border, they can actually open up your computer and go through all of your computer. They can go through your phones, they can read your e mails, they can do everything. A digital seizure. Excuse me? Now if you are within 100 miles from Canada or Mexico, if you are traveling between Los Angeles and Phoenix, you can be stopped by the Department of Homeland Security and literally asked for your papers, drug dogs could be brought into the back of your vehicle without any reason. Doesn't the Fourth Amendment guarantee the right of Americans to be secure in their persons, their houses, their papers and their effects? It doesn't mean just papers. It means digital as well. But see, if they can say that you don't have a right to security on online, security in your e mail, security on your cellphone, they even are making the case now that you, because your cellphone can you triangulate, they don't need a warrant to say, where's Glenn Beck now? You don't have a reasonable right to privacy of location, the government is making this case now. Are you kidding me? If they can scare you into silence, they will. If they can use an emergency to take away your voice, they will. If they can do it legally, they will. If the court stops them, they will just change one way or another and Barack Obama said this over and over again. They will get it done.

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.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
