Glenn Beck: When Anthony Weiner Attacks

Visit Weiner

Tonight, I want to talk about preserving our nation and our nation's ideals. And part of that has to be preserving our wealth. And by wealth, I don't mean only the rich people in the audience. I am talking about whatever you have.

If you think you're safe because you are not the wealthiest one percent, then I have news for you: No matter what you make, you are considered rich compared to the rest of the globe. And whatever wealth you have left will be targeted to be shipped overseas to any place deemed less fortunate, worse off or more needy than you.

Let me show you what is being created.

Congressman Anthony Weiner had a press conference, which really means he called MSNBC. He's accusing one of the sponsors of my radio and television programs, Goldline, of "ripping off" customers and he's just fighting for the little guy.

Here's what he said:


REP. ANTHONY WEINER, D-N.Y.: There also seems to be an unholy alliance taking place between conservative commentators and this industry.

One thing that we know for sure is that Goldline is a rip-off and they are a very sophisticated, multi-media rip-off.

The report he issued stated the following: "On numerous occasions, Glenn Beck has dedicated entire segments of his program to explaining why the U.S. money supply is destined for hyperinflation with Barack Obama as president."

Hmm, I think I said the same thing when Bush was president. He goes on:

"He will often promote the purchase of gold as the only safe investment alternative for consumers who want to safeguard their livelihoods."

We took apart the untruths in this report and you can go to for all of it. But let's talk about the real unholy alliance: The "grassroots" efforts to silence me.

Presidential adviser Jim Wallis is boycotting my show. Van Jones, former green jobs "czar" at the White House, his firm boycotting my show. Presidential economic adviser Andy Stern led SEIU's boycott of my show. But now we've graduated into a darker level; now it is official. McCarthy has appeared: Using the power of Congress to come after this show.

What are the odds that the president doesn't know three of his advisers and one congressman is doing this to one show? How afraid they must be to spend all this time and money on little old me.

By the way, in a completely unrelated story, Weiner had a busy day Tuesday: He launched this attack on me and then a little later in the day he met with the president. Totally coincidental.

Oh, one other completely unrelated story, Weiner's newly hired press secretary, until recently, worked at Media Matters — a George Soros-funded spin machine for the left. It was Media Matters who first started the lie that my ratings were down on this program. Update: May ratings year-to-year are up 22 percent. It's also Media Matters who started this ridiculous attack on gold sponsorships.

Now that sounds like something worth looking into. And you can do that on the new site: Because, the only way to deal with a joke of an investigation is to treat it like one. It's a site about Anthony Weiner — e-mail tips to

But I digress.

So that's four attempts to stop this show that I know of, coming from the administration or from Congress. What is it they are so afraid of? Man, what we are saying must be so right. Let me show you our track record on the economy, the auto industry and health care in America:


GLENN BECK RADIO PROGRAM, AUGUST 16, 2007: You know, I've been — I've been a bull on the economy for a very long time. However, it is time to face facts on the economy and that is it's smoke and mirrors.

GLENN BECK RADIO PROGRAM, JULY 26, 2007: I'm telling you, I really, truly believe we're going to have universal health care and I don't think you're going to be able to do anything to stop it.

The auto industry in America, let's be honest, it's not going to be able — it will collapse.


That's the "we took five minutes" track record — we could do many more. But here's why they are really afraid: We are showing you the way out.

Look at this — the top 25 movers and shakers on Have you ever seen anything like this? "The Real Thomas Jefferson"; "Sacred Fire"; "The Wives of the Signers" — I mean, even "Separation of Church and State" is a "mover and shaker"? Seventeen out of the top 25 "movers and shakers" on are about either the Constitution, the Founders or religion. This show has talked about at least 11 of those seventeen.

There is a revival going on in America: A revival of truth, information, our Founders and faith. That is what they are afraid of: They have worked 100 years to get you fat, lazy and stupid. And in a year, we're dismantling them.

The other question I had on this latest "stop Glenn Beck and talk radio" attempt: Why pick gold? First of all, let me just say I don't care where you spend your money. I put my money where my mouth is — I'm the biggest loser if I'm wrong. Weiner says there needs to be more disclosure. Wait, someone in Washington is calling for more transparency?

I will tell you what I believe — few will do that. I'm an open book. I'll tell you when I'm wrong. I do say invest in gold — I do. But I also tell you this is a doorway of insanity. But am I alone in thinking we live in insane times? I know billionaires who've told me they don't know what to do with their money. Neither do I, that's why I've been focusing on faith, hope and charity. That's our gold standard. The Bible talks about times like these: Where people bury treasure and gold. It's worthless when they go back for it.

The Gold Standard is only worth something because we decided it was valuable; it could have been clamshells. It's psychological. After all the bank failures in the 1930s, people stocked up on gold. On April 5th 1933, by executive order, FDR ordered citizens to give up their gold and trade it in to the Treasury. Violators would pay a huge fine or even serve up to 10 years in prison. Only gold considered art or collectables were allowed to be kept. Everything else he seized.

Congressman Weiner warns consumers by saying gold is at a "non-inflation based" high, implying it's not a good investment because you are buying at the peak. But let's adjust for inflation:

Right now, gold is just under $1,200 an ounce. In 1980, gold hit a then-record $873 an ounce. But with inflation, that's $2,287 in today's dollars, not even close to where it's at today.

Weiner wants you to believe inflation doesn't matter.

Why was gold high in the 1980s? There was no talk of economic collapse. No, but they were inflating the money. They were spending too much. Well, it's worse now, right? So why is gold still relatively low now? Because they tricked you: TIPS — Treasury Inflation Protected Securities.

In the '80s, Congress realized that if we have problems, people take money out of bonds and put it into gold, silver and precious metals. When you do that, you are in control of your wealth. The government can't use it. They wanted to block that path.

But they also wanted to get away with it as long as they could before you woke up. If gold was at $3,000 an ounce today, you'd be freaking out and they'd put a stop to this nonsense. TIPS allows you to continue until the patient is almost dead.

Congressman Weiner, under guise of attacking me, is putting more blinders on this society.

The hedge for inflation now is bonds. TIPS suppresses the price of gold. Despite this, gold prices are still climbing. If people believe the government will default, the price of gold will go even higher. This is not about me; this is not about Goldline — it's about shutting down another way for you to protect yourself.

In Germany, they're banning naked short selling. The stock market is gambling: You think something will go up, you invest. Think it's crappy — like CCX — you bet against it. It's the market. That's short selling. It's the way you can see what people think is coming.

They are trying to box you into a corner.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
