Glenn's MUST read - Liberal Fascism

GLENN: Okay. I think we're going to have him on television. I just got his new book, Liberal Fascism, and I would like to tell you that I've read the book but as Stu will tell you, I don't really do that.

STU: Well, it is about, it does -- I mean, I really wanted to read that book but it looked pretty long to me. It looked about a six month read on my scale. So I backed off of it. You read a lot but you only read nine pages of each book.

GLENN: No, here's what I do. I skip around a lot. I mean, I'm just looking at it here. This is 400 pages, 400 pages, and I read so much that I skip around. I like to call it Glenn Beck speed reading. What I do is I look and I'm like, yeah, yeah, yeah, Hitler, Hitler, Hitler, I got it, next page. This one I actually read every word on every page and I only read about 150 pages of it over the weekend but it is absolutely fantastic. In fact, did I tell you, Stu, about the book that I wanted to -- there's three books that I want to write and one of them is -- what did you say?

STU: I mean, why not. You've got one that's still in the top five of the New York Times Best Seller list. Why not plan out the next three.

GLENN: This is the way I am.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: One of which -- and it's not that I want -- it's not that I'm setting out to write a book. It's that I'm curious about something and I've been curious on this one thing and it is a way for me to be able to afford the research that would have to go into it. And one of those books was on -- I said, what was it, about six months ago I don't believe that the communist party ever went away. I don't believe that Russia actually collapsed. I think they all went in hiding. I don't think that after we had the situation with McCarthy that those communists just went away. We just stopped looking for them. What happened to all of them? Where did they all go? And so what I've wanted to do is fund the research to be able to track them. How did it happen? When did it start? When did it come here? How did it go underground? Part of the reason why I wanted to do it is because Amity Shlaes' book called The Forgotten Man. It shows some of the beginning, the Progressive movement that Hillary Clinton is talking about. "Well, I like to consider myself a modern early 20th century Progressive." Remember what we first looked that up on the air? What is an early 20th century Progressive? That should spook the living bat crap out of you. What a early Progressive was is a fascist. They were the ones -- and really it is exactly, I mean word for word, the kind of fascist that you always call George W. Bush. All the people on the left always say, "Oh, George W. Bush is a fascist, he's Hitler, he's Mussolini." Why? Why do they say that? Because he wants to impose -- this is what they believe. I don't believe it to be true. He wants to impose a set of morals on other people. Well, what the hell is "You can't have transfats, you can't smoke, you can't do this, you can't do that." That's fascism. That's what it is. It's fascism with a smiley face, and we are much closer to fascism, and you know it in your gut. You know it to be true because look at the debate on global warming. You cannot have a debate on global warming. "Science is solved." Just like eugenics was solved. "The science was solved. The scientists all agree. It's all peer reviewed." And so what happens? They shut down all debate. Well, that's what happens with fascism. And so Jonah Goldberg where the book Liberal Fascism and quite frankly I hope to have him on in the next couple of days, on television tonight. I'm so sick and tired of him in it, in the first 20 pages, saying "I am not calling Democrats Nazis, I'm not saying that liberals are all Mussolini." He says it like 500 times because somebody is going to take this book out of context. But I am telling you, America, if you are a listener of this program, this is a must-read. Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. Absolute must-read. It takes you from the beginning where he says, really fascism didn't start with Mussolini. It was here in America already with Woodrow Wilson and he explains how it all comes together. And really it's not a dry read. It's really not. He explained how it all came together here in the United States, how it went over to Mussolini and how the liberal left here in America loved Mussolini, how George Bernard Shaw and these Hollywood elites, they went over there and they fell all over themselves with Mussolini, how they just thought he was the greatest, how the New York Times wrote "This is the future." It is fascism before fascism was a bad word. "It is fascism and it is the future government." And they talked about in the New York Times how that this was the future and how democracy was over.

Well, here's what happened. They got all into this, and you know what? I never understood Radio City and Rockefeller Plaza. I am fascinated. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to work in Radio City. I mean, I'm eight years old. Growing up in Seattle. I don't even know how I knew Rockefeller Plaza, but I wanted to have an office in Rockefeller Plaza. And Radio City -- actually it's not Radio City Music Hall, was a music hall, it was a theater. That's all it was. But the reason why that whole building is called Radio City is because it was supposed to be a whole bunch of radio studios and they were going to do radio, national radio broadcasts out of Radio City on the floor that we're on now for the entire country. Well, the FCC was developed and they said you can't do that and so it was never built. My studio is the first studio to be built in Radio City after the namesake. It's the first national broadcast that comes out of that building on a daily basis five days a week, actually six days a week. It's the first time. And I have been fascinated by Radio City.

And I started to do my homework on it. Well, there's a collection of buildings in Rockefeller Plaza and they all are to great things, to sound and to light and to heart. Well, one of the buildings is called the Italia Building. It's Italian. The relief on the front of this building is all about Italy. Well, the relief was actually taken down. It's the only part of Radio City that is not original. It's the only part of Rockefeller Plaza that is not original because what the relief was originally was a monument to Mussolini. And after Mussolini was killed and fascism was tied to Hitler and the killing of the Jews, that's when Rockefeller Plaza decided to take that down. But until that time the artist, the elitist, the left in America, the movers and the shakers, the wealthiest 1%, they were all for fascism because fascism, they could be in on that power and they can get done what they want done and screw the little people. Screw what everybody else wants. They will tell you. The top of the group will tell everybody else how to live their life. And I'm telling you that we are headed that direction. We have been headed that direction for a long time. You know it to be true when you see the debate on global warming. You know it to be true when you listen to what your kids are telling you, they're teaching in universities.

I have to tell you I talked to a head of a university of a church university, a religious university. He said, Glenn, it's darn near impossible for us to find professors here. Why? Why? Why is it possible -- or why is it impossible? It's impossible because nobody's teaching them. Nobody's teaching the truth.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
